Insensate as it may appear at first sight tho possibility of Mr. Astor's becoming a. gramlson-in-la-w ot Queen Victoria the matter is very seriously discussed as a not at nil unlikely project in the drawing-rooms of Mayfair, in clubdom and in court circles.

Mrs. Duncan Elliot is said to be lovelier than ever since the blrtn of her little sou, says the New York Journal. Many consider her the handsomest of the' Hai'gous sisters, or, as some have called them, "The Three Graces." When Mrs. Elliot (Sullle Hai'gous) was mtrried in Newport she was pronounced the most beautiful bride ever seen in that "summer city by the sea. The exquisite lace veil she wore on that occasion had a history. It was submitted for tho approval of Queen Victoria, with the hope that she would select it j for tho Princess Beatrice, when she married the late Prince Henry of Bat- tenber::. but the queen, while she recognized its merit, considered it too expensive.

It will be hard for Americans to understand how much this really means, and it is this that has set London agog. It is tho tacit recognition of the renegade American on the plane W. W. ASTOR. of a British nobleman of the first rank. H £fc ^Jl ±l.t^«* " Astor, with his miylons of Now rents, has been stalking high garni;. To everyone who has taken the troub:e to observe the cautious, deliberate course adopted by the American millionaire it has been apparent from ine very outset that he had in view some definite aim, some object upon which his ambition was centered, and to which everything his newspapers, his magazines and his vast wealth were subordinate. After havin CT .._ years of his sojourn maintained a most reserved demeanor—that, iu fact, oC a social chrysalis—he has this year utirst forth as a full-fledged butterfly of tho most gorgeous and mp.gnificcnt species. a butterfly indeed who manifests a sii- prcme disdain for all but the very choicest flowers ol England's aristocracy. At one moment it was reported Jiar. he had in view a marrir.no with Lady Randolph Churchill, and many oven went so far as to question her sons as to the date ft::cd for the woddinjr.

Lord Bacon advised the traveler to "carry with him some card or book describing the country where be traveled," which would be a good key to his inquiry,- says tho CovnbUl Magazine. But tho guidebook oC the period was a rather treacherous friend and was to be rolted upon rather for sound moral disquisitions than the practical purposes, A good example is furnished by Howell's "Instructions for forrelno Travel," printed at tho -Prince's Armes in Faille's Churchyard," in the year 16-12. The author lias no love for folk who never leave the parish in which they were born: "Such slow and sluggish people may be said to be like Snailes or Tortoises in their shells, crawling always about their own home or like the Cyniqtie shut up always.in a tub." The first country we islanders should become acquainted with is France, "and the younger one goes to France the better, because of the harclnesse of accent and the pronunciation, which will hardly be overcome by one who has passed his minority, and in this point the French Tongue may be said to be like Fortune, which, being a wo- lii.in, loves youth best." It might seem strange to a modern tourist to gather information from a chat with "some ancient nunne." These ladies, however appear to have had no objection to bcin:; interviewed. "They speak a quaint 'dialect," Howell informs us. "ar.d, besides, they have most wminon- ly al'l tho Ncwes that passe and they will entertain in discourse till one bee weary II ho bestow on them now and then'some small bagatels as English t'lovcs, or knifes, or ribands." The conversation with these nuns must have been carried en under certain disadvantages, as the ladies were behind a grating.

Botiltou & Watt, the cradle of the steam engine and tho first mechanical engineering shops the world ever saw, recently broken up and brought to the auctioneer's hammer, conjures up many memories of the past, and whether viewed in the light i of the historical associations recalled or the lessons of the changes time brings, it is well worthy of some passing comment at our hands. Soho is about two mjles north of Birmingham and was until the middle ot last century a barren heath and rabbit warren, the solo relic of the past, the well of the warrener's hut still existing. On this spot Botiltou erected his famous factory, about 1760, and devoted his attention to the manufacture of metal wares and similar articles. This factory, the "Soho" properly so called, was dismantled as far back as 1850-51, many o£ the tools being removed to "Sobo foundry," about a mile distant from "old Soho." It is with the fortunes of the "Soho foundry" that we are now concerned, as this fa.7no.ns establishment, now sold, had survived its parent by nearly half a century. Soho foundry was' built in 1775 and covered an area of over nineteen acres; its foundation wos clue to the rapidly extending business of Boulton & Watt, who found their existing works quite unable to cope with the ever-increasing demand I 1 or the new steam engine.—Chamber?'
