Our green has lately been visited by some half-dozen wild pigeons, who no doubt have escaped from Washington Market, and they have attempted to take up their abode in the trees, but the wrens, who, it would seem, claim a life lease on this their City residence, determined to drive the intruders out, and they have, by the aid of the cats, nearly accomplished it. The latter lie in ambush, while the wrens attack the pigeons, driving them from the trees to the ground, when puss pounces on the weary stranger, and makes no bones of stowing him in her hide. Thus you see, selfishness exists among other "animals" beside man.
- Majestically yours,
- The Great Sycamore.
