Considering his nation and his habits, it will not appear surprising that the Comte D'Ormalle did not concern himself about what might happen in about eight and twenty years.

The ecclesiastical council on his case was broken up; and the only individual of that body who appears to have taken any further interest in the matter is brother Rateleux, who was long employed in a deep investigation and learned dissertation upon the probability and possibility of the gentleman in black urging his claims, should the Comte have arrived in purgatory before the expiration of the period during which he had agreed to allow them to remain dormant. We are happy to say that the decision to which he came was, that, in such a case, which according to the usual tenor of human existence, may probably occur, the gentleman in black will be nonsuited. But if the learned brother has made a false conclusion, or the Comte should survive the stipulated period, his ultimate fate must depend entirely upon the question of the pope's supremacy, which may, perhaps, then be argued at full length. But, it is an enquiry of too deep importance, and involved too much in the labyrinths of historical investigation, for us to venture an opinion thereupon.

In the meanwhile they are going on in Paris as if they cared nothing about the matter.

It is intended to comprise a Calendar of remarkable Events, of every kind, each arranged under its respective dute; two pages being devoted to each day in the year, and these being divided into three separate compartments, under the respective heads of—1. Births ; 2. Deaths; 3. Acts. Each page has also a motto and a tail-piece, consisting of a pithy sentence from some approved author; and each month is introduced by selected verses appropriate to the

We do not profess to be very precisely acquainted with the previous publications of a similar kind, with which the · Anniversary Calendar' will have to compete ; but as far as our memory in such matters serves us, the present is by far the mo tasty of its class, and it is sufficiently comprehensive to serve all the purposes of utility for which it is designed. It will be completed at the end of the present year, in thirteen monthly parts, and form two volumes, which will be by no means destitute of that entertainment which is too often purposely divorced from utility.”—Court Journal, Feb. 13.
