7. — Borne Interesting recollections were published some time since in an Australian paper of the famous novelist, Oharles Dickens. The writer was an old member of the Birmingham and Midland Institute, of which Dickens was at one time president.
"Well,"he says,"do I remember Charles Dickens's appearance and speech at the beginning of his year of ofBce.
" I was disappointed in his ap« pcarance. It was not pleasant to see one of the gods of literature with a big gold chain hung from each side of his waisccoat, and n general get-up suggestive more of the commercial-room in an hotel than a seat on Olympus. But when once the wonderful man began to talk I forgave him the chain and even the velvet collar, and hung entranced on his words more even than I had previously done on his works.
" Re gave away the prizes gained by the students of the Institute that year. The names were called out by the secretary as each winner mounted the platform.
"Great was tho laughter when a Miss'Winkle'advanced to rccelve her prize. Dickens shook hands with the young lady, and whispered something into her ear ; then, turning to the audience, ho said,' 1 have been advising Miss Winkle lo change her name.'"
8.—Jules Verne was a broker before hd was an author of any note. After spending all day in buying and selling stocks, and figuring up reports, he would return home with aching head, and l>egln to write for the sako of diversion. After he bad published several works which obtained wonderful popularity, he perceived that ho could earn his livelihood with his pen, and he gave up brokerage.
10.—Charles Lamb has been thus briefly described by himself
Oharles Lamb, born in the Inner Temple, 10th of February, 1775, educated in Christ's Hospital; afterwards a clerk In the Accountant's Oltlce, East India House ; pensioned og from that service 18M, after 83 years' service ; Is now a gentleman at large ; can remember few specialities In his life worth noting, except thathe once caughta swallow fiying (ksfo sad aiaaa) ; below the middle stature; cast of face slightly Jewish, with no Judaic tinge in his complexional religion ; stammers abominably, and Is therefore more apt to discharge his occasional conversation in a quaint aphorism or a iwor quibble, than in set and edifying speeches; has consequently been b belled as a person always aiming at wit, which, as he told a dull fellow that charged him with it, is at least as good as aiming at dulness. A small eater, but not drinker ; confesses a partiality for the production of the juniper berry;
