 On Sunday amidst a crowd of spectators were christened by the Rev. Lister Metcalf, in the parochial chapel
 of Muker, Swaledale, near Askrigg, in this county, two girls and a boy, at one birth, the tender
 offspring of Christopher and Margaret Peacock, whose united ages make 105 years, viz. Christopher
 aged 60, and Margaret 45; and what is remarkable she has two brothers and two sisters now living who
 had twins each; the children are extremely healthy, and the most promising to do well.
 How prolific is the air of Muker!
