A Confirmed Grumbler .—■The following sketch m|y be « carica ture, though we think there is a human likeness about it so real as to be easily recognized : Some time ago there lived in Ed inburg a well-known grumbler, named Sandy Black, whose oftèU recurring fits of spleen or inwgëà tion, produ«d some amusing «cènes of senseless irritability, which ware highly relished by all except the brute's good patient Kttle wife. One morniDg Sandy arose bent on : a quarrel. The häddies and eggs were excellent ; done to a turn, *and had been ordered by himself the pre vious evening, and breakfast passed without the looked for cdU&e of complaint, /«'What will you have for dinner, Sandy," said Mrs. Black. "A chicken, madam/' said her husband. "Roast or boiled?" asked the wife. "Confound it, madam, if you had been a good and considerate wife you'd had known before what I liked," Sandy growled out, and »lamming the door behind him, left the"house. It was in the spring, and a friend who was present heard the wife say : "Sandy's bent on* a disturbance to-day ; I shall not please him, do what I can." The dinner time came, and Sandy and his friend sat down to dinner. The fish was eaten in silence, and mi raising the cover of the dish be fore him, in a towering passion, he called out : "Boiled chicken? I hate it ttadatn. A chicken boiled is a chicken spoiled." Immediately the cover was raised for another chicken roasted to a turn. "Madam, I won't eat roast cliicken,"roared Sandy ; "yoüknöw how it should have been cooked !" At that instant a broiled chicken, with mushrooms, was placed on the table. 'Without green peas !" roared thb . grumbler, ? , • ! "Here they are," said Mrs. Black. "How dare you spend my money in that #ay !" "They were a present," Baid the wife, interrupting him. Rising from his chair, and rush ing from the room, amidst a roar of laughter from his friend, he clenched his fist and shouted : "How dare you receive a present without my leave ?" A D readful F atk .—Much sym pathy is expressed in the Lyons coun try papers for the fate of a young and rising musioiau, wh<^ at* the last French conscription, waB unfortunate enough to draw mauvais numéro, and he was sent out to join a regiment quartered at Vera Cruz. He was at once employed in the band. In con sequence of his good conduct, Benoit Denis succeeded in obtainsng the co lonel's permission to perfbrm at pri vate balls aDd concerts, and thus gain a certain independence. On the 5th of last December he, after executing a fantasie on the cornet-a-piston at the house of a wealthy American mer chant residing near Vera Crui, quit ted the heated concert room to refresh himself in the pleasure grounds and enjoy the cool evening air. Feeling hirsry, he took up an aicaraza which he happened to see near a fountain, filled it with fresh water, and put it to his lips Frightful screams in stantly attracted the company to the spot. Denis was lying on the earth, his hair op end, his features livid, the body and tail of a monster seolopen der (mille pieds) protruding from his gaping mouth. The reptile, whose bite is mo^e venomous than that of a scospion, had taken shelter from the heat in the cool porcelain beaker. As Benoit approached the vase to bis lips the scolopender had sprung at bia open throat. In vain was the reptile 's body out away. When once its fangs close on t!heir prey it is impossible to tear them open. A Burgeen who chanced to be among the guests pro ceeded to out them out of the flesh, piece by piece ; but by the time the operation was over the poison bad pri^ dnced its fatal results, and after threa hours of agonizing convulsions this ÜB* fortunate young artist expired.
