    A series of disjointed observations on the natural and social world. These include a report that 'The rhinoceros in Mr. Lyons's menagerie last night presented the elephant with a fine foal. This is the first instance on record of a pachydermatous hybrid, which, should it fortunately survive, will doubtless prove no small attraction to zoologists'.
