A Deo and Collar for thk Prihceof Walis The people of Newfoundland and Canada are preparing all kinds of surprises for H R H the Prince of Wales, and, doubtless, when the eldest son of the Queen goes home again he will have a ship-load of tokens of his future subjects' devotion and affection to lay at the feet of his royal mamma. Among other trifles, the people cf Newfoundland have determined to present the Prince with a superb, full-blooded, black Newfoundland dog. Tiffany & Co., of New York, furnish the collar for the animal. The collar weighs 40 ounces of silver, and is accompanied by an exceedingly fine steel chain of exquisite workmanship. The whole affair is enclosed in a substantial morocco case, lined with mimic velvet, and Is valued at 8350.

A Gla?s Coffin.?Among the late inventions is a glass coflln, by John R. Cannon It is composed of two parts, each moulded by pressure; the joint is made true by grinding, and secured by cement so as to hermetically seal the cavity For still further security.

When desired also the interior air may be removed by an exhaust-pump, or dis , ? - j ?? ?? . ?* i? uinuc ?n j rurujiiyj and may be ornamented to any extent No substance Is more durable than glass. and nothing will more securely keep what is enclosed in it.
