TURN ABODT'S FAIR PLAT.—At Walton, near Chesterfield, the other day, as a farmer was in the act of devouring an apple-pudding, made by the servant-maid, he suddenly dis- covered that he had something in his mouth more difficult of mastication than boiled apple: it turned out to be the head of a mouse, which had been boiled with the pudding. The girl, for her mischievous propensities, was chastised with the end of a rope. On the following day, the master went to his dinner, as usual, and asked what she had cooked! She told him to look in the pot." He did so, and saw nothing but the rope's end! I had it for dinner yesterday," said the girl, and its only fair you should have it to-day." ODOURS.—Speaking of odours, a single grain of musk has been known to perfume a room for twenty years. How often, during that time, the air of the apartment must have become charged with fresh odour! At the lowest compu- tation the musk has been subdivided into three hundred and twenty quadrillions of particles, each of them capable of affecting the olfactory organs. The diffusion of odorous effluvia may also be conceived from the fact, that a lump of assefætida. ezposed to the open air, lost only a grain in seven weeks. Again, since dogs hunt by the scent alone, the effluvia emitted from the several species of animals, and from different individuals of the same race, must be essentially distinct, and being discerned over large spaces, must be sub- divided beyond our conception, or powers of numbers. The human skin is perforated by a thousand holes in the space of a square inch. If, therefore, we estimate the surface of the body of a middle-sized man to be sixteen feet, it must contain not fewer than 2,304,000 pores. These pores are the mouths of so many excretory vessels, which perform the important function in the, animal economy of tntensible perspiration Shates Nature Displayed. CONCEIT.—It is act possible but that a conceited man must be a fool, for that overweening opinion which he hath of himself excludes all opportunity of purchasing knowledge. Let a vessel be once full of never so base liquor, it will not give room to the costliest, but spills beside whatsoever is infused. The proud man, though he be empty of good sub- stance, yet is full of conceit. Many men had proved wise, if they had not thought themselves so.-Bislwp Halt. ANTIQUITY OF JUDGES GOING CIRCUIT.-It is not, per- haps, generally known, at how remote a period this practice prevailed; but, on consulting 1 Samuel, vii. 16, we find this extraordinary confirmation:-And he (Samuel) went from year to year in circuit to Bethel, and Gilgal, and Mizpeh, and judged Israel in all those places.
