Some Tadlans, who have hind several sheep

'I am greatly obliged to you, replied
Benzeval, 'but is it certain thiit the tigress

'There is no doubt about it. From the

So mitch for the Solitary of Orval -
The-next French prophecy is ascribed
to a Jesuit priest of Poitiers, who died at
Bordeaux towards the close of the last
century. It was made prior to the first
French revolution, Which it predicted, and
other events, (as in the case of Orval) to
the present time. Hence it is popularly
depended on for thefutur.-It predicts,
among other things, a terrible convulsion
-the formation of two parties in France
-that convulsion shall extend to other
lands (it has done so)-and that Paris
shall be "so utterly destroyed, that when
twenty years afterwards, furthers shall
walk with their children, and the children
shall ask-why is that desolate spot?'
they shall answer-My children, here
once stood a great city, which God les
t royed fur its crinies.' A fter this fearful
convulsion, all will return to order, and
the counter-revolution shall bs made. -
Then shall the triumph of the Church be
such, that nothing like it shall ever 1)e
seen again, for it shall be the last triumph
of the Church on earth." The commen.
tator says thiatthe " events foretold ought
to receive their fulfilment (calculation
given) befbre 1859. And so much for
the prophecy of Poitiers.
Then comes the prediction of Bug do
Thilas,of the pyrenees, in the sixteenth
century, who predicted the utter destruc
tion of Paris, entering into details of the
great fire, and fixing the epoch for the
disaster in the nineteenth century.
SThe." Prophetie Lorranine" in verse,

The Rev. Robert Fleming's (Minister
of the Scottish Church) predictions, pub.

events to 1794 as the opening of the

DROLL FUNERAL PROCESSION.

mourners, with curled and powdered wigs

Until a year or two since, the lagoon ox
tending from the entrance of our harbor 'to
within half a mile of the Perdido Blay, a dis
tance of eight or ten miles, had an entrance
into our bay at a point near the residence -of
Major Chase, the channel at one time admit
ting vessels drawing seven foot, and all tho'
vessels laden with brick for the building of
Fort Mc Ree passed through this channel In
to the lagoon to discharge their cargoes. By'
the action of the surf rolling in Tro the"
ocean, the entrance was gradually closed.
Thus the lagoon remained for three months,
constantly receiving accessions from the lit
tle streams making into it, until it was two'
or three feet above the level of the bay and
sea. At this time a young man residing ,
the neighborhood, "just for the fun of the'
thing," cut a little dItch through the sand at
a low point near the fort, .-when the water'
commenced running, and in a few hours It
was cutting away everything before it, and
in a day or two there was a channel of -over
a hundred yards wide, and in the deepest
place twelve or fourteen feet. The channel
has ever since been encroaching upon thel
fort,-and a few months since began to wash
its base. Major Chase, seeing that the
beautiful fort that lied been erected under
his supervision, at a cost, probably, of over
a million of dollars, was in danger of boin
blown up by an unexuw'eted enemy, and
knowing that the structur-e ".ested- upo
sandy foundation, turned -hIs attentint6.

nel, and in a short time the watet wasn suc

Major is nowv endeavoring to divert -the wat f

the fort is not in such dangerous pron~i
