That "Sarpint." - The serpent has "arrove," not those terrible rattle snakes we were lately informed of at Redfield, but the veritable "sea serpent." We have been expecting to hear from him every day for some weeks past. He has left "Silver lake," it will seem, and now favors the waters of the St. Lawrence with is "distinguished presence," disporting himself among the Thousand Islands.

He has been seen, if we may believe the Brockvillians, about three miles above Brockville. It is stated that Mr. L. Parker and Mr. D. Ladd were out in a boat the other day, and were pursued by the monster, who raised his body about six feet out of the water and followed them almost to the shore. he was also seen from the bark Protection.

With a comet and a "Sea Sarpint," we shall be able to get along tolerably well for novelties this season.
