LEEDS, November 27.

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!

Transcriber's note: The article appears to be "from our correspondent". The event actually took place on 28th September.
