The London and China Telegraph,

by France against Corea, says the
news confirms a previous statement
that the French Admiral would act en
tirely on his own responsibility and
without the special instfuctions of his
Government. He has thus, probably,
precipitated a second Cochin China
conflict for which the Emperor will
not thank him.

P'yrenees. The commulie celut-ated its

FALL OF THE LEA'--The seasonsof
,he fall of the leaf Las come again,
with all its sad and salutary teachings.
Who can shut his hotjV, against its les

riot reminded that such is huftn life 1'
Nven as a leaf when the fros has
Iried up its sap, and its stems ding
no more to the parent tree, so is. our
life. It may be green to-day and
float gaily upon the hummer breeze,
but the frosts of death are gnawing at
its stem, and we know not if it shall
wave there tonorrow, or *be driven
away by the wintry blasts to eternity.
Il ppy are we, if Nature prhebes not
toil in vain, in this her solemn day.
