REPTILES IN IRELAND. The story of Saint Patick's expulsion of venomous reptiles from Ireland is known to every one. Some writers have suppos ed that the tradition should he interpreted in a metaphorical sense, and that the wor ship of demons or of serpents was abol ished by tiie Saint. in am case, the fact that the Sland w as free from these crea tures is men tWn«d by several early histo rians. and a native Bishop says, in a Lat in poem of the ninth century, that in Ire land “no serpent creeps through the grass, and no frog chatters in the lakes.' 1 bis latter phenomenon remained true till the early part of the eighteenth century.when a l-Vlluw of T: inky College, Dublin, im port^tf edme frog spawn from hngland, and placed it in the ditches. Since then, frogs have sprt ad over tin* country. Sev eral attempt have also be.-tt made to in troduce vijmrs and other isnakes. hut ap parently they have not survived long. A speeies’of lizard, however, is said to he found in Ireland. The island of Malta claitD a similar immunity from reptiles.

When this is found to have been effected, the material is with drawn front the action of the chloride of sulphur, washed with water, dried, ground to powder, and mixed with some substance which causes it to adhere tog,'lit er (tor instance, shellac, or any other resinous substance, or good glue, or a thick solution of gum) and is then pressed into moulds, and shaped into buttons, combs, knife-handles, etc. AxTiyt iTV i» mi Would.—I am speak ing a very long way within the limit when 1 say it is impossible to suppose that the coal-measures accumulated faster than at the rate of one-tenth of an Inch in a year. Two thousand feet are eipial to 2-LOW inches, and that multiplied by ten gives, 240,000 years! i am speaking with ex cessive moderation when 1 lix that time as the minimum for the formation of the coal-measures.
