Land-Craps of Cuba.
These creatures. are larger .than a
sea-crab, and live entirely on the laml.
They run with great spefd, even out
stripping a horse. At seasons of the
year they migrate in large bodies from
one side of the island to the other, in
columns sometimes half a mile wide,
and so dense as almost to stop a cr-'
riage on the road fhey may be crossing.
These columns overcome every obstacle
in their direot line ot maroh, even high'
mountains. It is supposed that' these
migrations are prompted by the in
stinct of propagation,' as the crabs aeek
the sea shore, deposit their'' eggs, and
cast off the old shell. JheEe crabs, are
so common about the city of Matanzas
that the inhabitants often receive the
eobriqnet of "cangrejo." i'They are
frequently found in the houses, and in
some cases even under the beds. - "

At first the schedule' was fixed at 10
days, an average of eight miles an hour
from start to finish. This was out
down to eight days, requiring an aver
age -speed of 10 miles. The quickest
trip made was in carrying i President
Lincoln's inaugural address, which was
done in seven days and 17 hours, an
average speed of 10.7 miles per hour,
the fastest time of any one rider being
130 miles, from Smith's Creek to Fort
Churchill, by "Pony Bob," in eight
hours and 10 minutes, or 14,7 miles
per hour. Considering the distanoe
and difficulties enoountered, such as
hostile Indians, road-agents, floods, and
snowstorms, and accidents to horses

Lottrrlei in Old Havana.
In Havana the stranger's attention
is arrested by the venders ol lottery
tickets, who stand on the street corners
with a pair of shears in one hand and
sheets of lottery tickets in the other,
ready to cutoff any number for buyers.
They are very adroit, and are apt to
persuade the oiedulous that they will
draw a fortune in the soheme. These
licensed lotteries are one of the great
evils there, especially to the Spanish
people, who seem to be born gamblers,
and for whom the chances of dice,
cards, and lottery tickets appear to
have an irrestible charm, all classes in
Havana dealing in them habitually.
