GeorgE IV. a Hack Driver.?A
London hackney coachman, giving
ttn jiccount qf his "life and times" in
thirMorning Chronicle, relates the ^
following story: (<
"Ah, tne old times was the rackety a
times! I've often laughed and said '
that 1 could say what perhaps nobody,
or almost nobody in England,
can say now, that I'd been driven by
a King. He grew to be a King afterwards,
George IV. One night, p
you see, sir, I was called off the F*and j?
and told to take up at the Brii.sh ^
coffee-house, in Gockspur street. I
was a lad then, and when I pulled up
at the door, the waiter ran out
and said: 'You jump down, and get
inside?the JPrince is going to drive
himself.1 I didn't much like the notion
on it, but I didn't exactly know ?
Vvhat to do, and wr.s getting off my
seat to see if the waiter had put any
tiling inside, for he let down the glass I
am1 just as I was getting down, and
had my loot on the wheel, ?iat came
the Prince of Wales, and four or five tl
rattle-brained fellows like himself. 1 S
think Mai. Hanger was one, but I JH
had hardly time to see thew, for the IV
Prince griped me by the ancU and J
the waistband of my breeches, and d
lifted me off the wheel, and flung me h
right into the coach, through (he win- S
dow, and it was open, as happened, S
luckily. I was little then; but he r<
must have been a strong man. He tl
didn't seem so very drunk either..
The Prince wasn't such a bad dri- S
ver. Indeed, he drove very well for fe
a Prince." d
George Thompson, the famous En- tl
glish anti-slavery agitator, was a- k
mong the passengers by the steamer
Canada from Liverpool. W e believe
that it is not his intention to extend
his visit south of Mason & Dixon's ~

clearly expressed in the title?"Home Gazette.
! It will be, emphatically a paper

Ed tor, who will furnish some four or five
picitures of domestic life, written in his best
style, for every volume. The "Home Gaactte"

advocato tho light, and seek, by every
means, to widen the circle of human happiness.
Honestly will the editor teach the
truth, as he has ever done in his writings,
for the sake of good to his fellow men. But
in doing this, he will avoid unnecessary
harshness and causeless offence, and keep
his journal free from stain of wounding personality.
He will opposo what is fals?
and evil, as ono of his social duties; but
while doing 80; will use no sharper language
than ita rebuke and correction may require.The
"Home (7aicttc" will bo elegantly

young nnd old without injury to the eyes.
