Erpense of Living on the Continent. - As to the expense of living in different towns on the continent for a single person, at the first rate inos, bed and board, annually, faring sumptuously every day, and including every expense whatever, I take it to be nearly as follows in pounds sterling :-Florence, 1001.

Diffusion of Light. - The clouds obscure a great part of the sun's light, but they are never so dense as to obstruct it altogether. The light of the sun, when it strikes upon the particles of moisture form ing the clouds, is diffused through their whole mass; therefore the light we receive on cloudy days, instead of coming in parallel rays directly from the sun, is diffused among the vapours in the air, which thus become a great reservoir of light, and transmit it to the earth in various directions. Even 'on the clearest day, a great portion of the light from the sun is diffused by the vapours of the atmosphere. It is this diffusion of the light that produces the bright appearance of the sky. It is also to the diffusion of light by the vapours of the atmosphere that we are indebted for the twilight that ushers in the day, and cheers its departure. In a perfectly transparent a:mosphere we should be left in darkness the instant the sun was set ; but the clouds and vapours reflect the sun's diffused light, long after he is below the horizon, and during the summer months spread a genial twilight throughout the night.- Philosophical Conversations.

The Crocodile's tooth-picker.-I have frequently seen on the banks of the Nile a bird about the size of a dove, or perhaps rather larger, of handsome plumage, and making a twittering when on the wing. It has a peculiar motion of the head, as if nodding to some one near it, at the same time turning to the right and left, and making its congé twice or thrice before its departure; a mark of politeness I never before met with in any of the feathered tribe. I was told that it was called Suksaque, or Suk-sack, and that tradition had assigned to it the habit of entering the mouth of the crocodile, when basking in the sun on a sandbank, for the purpose of picking away what might be adhering to his teeth. This being done, it gives the crocodile hint of its wish to depart. The reptile immediately opens its jaws, and permits its animated tooth-pick to fly away.-Mador's Travels.

Kangaroo Island. - In the French voyage of discovery, by Messrs. Peron and Freycinet, we find the following account of these interesting animals, then little known or disturbed by Europeans.

“No iraces of the abode of man are to be observed here, and we saw but three species of the mammalia ; one of these belongs to the handsome genus dasyurus; the other two are new species, and appear to be the largest of the kangaroo tribe. Many of these animals are here of the height of a man, and more when, sitting on their hind legs and tail, they hold their body erect. From the favourable circumstance of the absence of every enemy, these large quadrupeds have multiplied very considerably in this island; they associate there in large herds. In some spots which they are in the habit of frequenting regularly, the earth is so trodden, that not a blade of herbage remains. Large pathways opening into the heart of the woods, abut upon the sea-shore from every part of the interior; these paths, which cross in every direction, are throughout firmly beaten ; one might be led to snppose at first sight, that the vicinity must be inhabited by a numerous and active population. This abun. dance of kangaroos, rendering the chase as easy as productive, we were enabled to procure twentyseven, which we carried on board our ship alive, independent of those which were killed and eaten by the crew. This valuable acquisition cost us neither ammunition nor labour; one single dog was our purveyor: trained by the English fishermen to this description of chase, he pursued the kangaroos, and having overtaken them, he immedi ly killed them by tearing the carotid arteries.-Voyage de Découvertes.

Settlements in Greece.- Many Englishmen have made purchases of land in Greece, and among them Sir Pulteney Malcolm, who has bought a very fine estate in the environs of Athens. The admiral has
