And yet, such are the strange freaks in which nature indulges, this mean and selfish Intreaguer was endowed with perfect courage, with an irresistible charm of manner, with a temper which even his wife failed to disturb, with a brain that no sophistry could obscure, and with a military genius before which criticism is humbly silent.

The centenary has been noted recently in London of what the Annual Register called "a most unparallelled sitrbcity." It was only the theft of a pocket handkerchief from a pocket; but the circumstances of the deed explain the vehemence of this denunciation. Four men were on their trial for assaulting a man in his house at Ponder's End, putting him in fear and stealing from him; and one of them relieved the tedium of the trial, which lasted eight hours, by picking the pocket of one of the turnkeys as he stood in the dock. An official had the presence of mind to order the restoration of the handkerchief, and the prisoner obeyed, "with the most careless Indifference," but the court, we read, ' were horror-struck.- " Justice, however, pulled itself together sufficiently to sentence all four men to death.

JENSEN, n "a new and singular spectacle." according to the account of a rlc'tor, "the whole range of Pall Mall, front St. James' to Cockspur street, was lighted up by means of lamps fed wftli gu . instead of cotton and oil, and cei ta.nly in a style of much superior brilliancy. This was the first instant.-o- f street lighting by coal gas in London, or in any other city. The merit of the enterprise is due to Winsor, a Herman company-promotinexpert, who was especially interested in the question of economic fuel. His pamphlets, however, contained so much extravagant fanaticism and quackery that they retarded rather than farthered Ilia schemes, which met with an extraordinary amount of opposition, even from enlightened people. Sir Walter Scott wrote that there was a rr...rnan proposing to light London with smoke. Awful consequences were predicted. The gas would poison the air ami blow up the inhabitants: it was explosive, dangerous, offensive and unmanageable; the pipes conveying It would be hot and apt to produce conflagrations. The lamplighters to a man opposed the new mode of street lighting, and it is curious to the great hesitation as to its possibility expressed in contemporary scientific and popular literature.
