McKinstry in passing on the case, re
marked that under the ruling of some
State Courts, as in this State, money may
be withdrawn which has been deposited

determined.1 In others the Courts go so
far as to say the act is illegal, immoral,
and that no action can lie against the
stakeholder; that the court will not take
any notice of the transaction. lie
thought this the wisest rule' of all, but he
would have to bow to that laid down by
the Supreme Court of California, a rule
which imposes on our Courts ot Justice
the duty of deciding bets, and these bets
may as well be bets on -a laro game as :
wagers ou election results. In the pres- j
ent case the bet was on a result, the j
election of Grant and Seymour; that re
sult was known before the bet was paid
over, and cannot be recovered back. The
Court, therefore, still protesting against a
rule which imposes such a duty on it, af
firmed the report of the referee, and
gave judgment for the delendant. o.

The Decrees of Providence. An

Providence, beiDg seated in a garden, be
gan to wonder why . such a monstrous
fruit as the pumpkin should grow on a
slender, slowly-creeping plant, while tho
giant oak, the monarch of the forest,
bore nothing bigger than an acorn. In
the midst of his cogitations, an acorn fell
from the tree underneath which he was
sitting,; and smote him on the pate j
whereupon the captious philosopher was
fain to acknowledge that Providence was
wiser in its arrangements than ho had
previously fancied! But the moral which
this story would inculcate does not ap
pear to be universally applicable. In the
island of Borneo, there is a forest tree as
large as an elm, which produces a highly
esteemed fruit called the durian. It may
be observed in passing, that though this
fruit has a smell like that ot putrid fish,
so that a single specimen is enough to in
fect a whole house, its flavor is so delic
ious, that those who venture to taste it
soon become confirmed dnrian eaters. The
eatable portion, which consists of a rich,
creamy, eustard-hke . : substance, is . en
closed in a hard shell, a good deal larger
than a cocoa-nut. and completely cover
ed with sharp spines. When one. of
these fruits fall, as it not unfrequently
does, from the tight of fifty or . sixty
feet upon the back of a naked native, it
inflicts a most frightful wound. The ap
ologue above cited,: therefore, will scarce
