There has been some complaint in aristocratic circles in England that in. great country houses there is now found much mixed society. This lins, however, always been the case. A well-ltnown actor pussed three days nt an historical mansion without knowing either host or hostess; he knew that the marquis and his'wife did not speak to one another, and that each would think he was the guest of the other. All records of the kind have been surpassed by what has recently taken place in France. A fascinating person has been recently making a round of visits at certain chateaux. He was "well known, in society," which means that he was gladly received in it, though nobody knew anything auout him. He lived, when, not in town' among his friends, in- a very luxurious fash ion. But all that he seems to have pos sessed of his own was a set of scientific Instruments of burglary. - In Jils pos-' session was also found a portfolio with plans of the interior arrangements of the houses at which he had been stop-' ping. One caa imagine a polished forger. Fauntlcroy was a most accomplished person, and gave excellent dinners., When he was under sentence cf death he was called on by one of his noble friends, who said: "Since you are go ing to leave us, perhaps. you will now' tell me where you get that green cu racoa from;" but a polished burglar is quite a novelty. . Conceive his thoughts while he is say ing soft nothings, to the lady he took in. to dimner. How he must have eyed her jewelry, and wondered where she kept it! What nights he must have passed flitting from room to room, a habit which, if discovered, he would doubtless have attributed to sleep walking! now very little must have been known among his. fine friends of this gentleman's "relatives and ante cedents."

The uttermost partsof the earth have never been to sought out as at present, and the antarctic is now attracting at tention as well as the arctic. A Belgian expedition sailed a few months ago for the antarctic region, and the Koyal Geographical society, London, has de termined to take upon itself the respon sibility of organizing a private expedi tion to the same, tlhougih the expecta tion is that government aid will con tribute to the success of 'the important undertaking. Ail that is claimed to he known of the antarctic ot the pnesent time is that no approach to the south polte nearer than 720 miles has ever been recorded; icy barriers exist which eclipse those of the north pole, and mountains have been discovered of lofty altitudes, some of these being vol canoes. FurtheT, the surface is covered with snow at all times of the year; no human being has been met south of 50 dk'grees, no vegetation of any account beyond 58 dtgrees, and no land: quadru ped is known to exist beyond 08 de grees.
