A Spunky Tenant.

--A late London paper contains the following advertisement: ‘"A gentleman who is about to leave the house in which he resides, and being desirous to return it to his landlord in the same condition in which he found it, will pay a fair price for five hundred full-grown rats, an acre of poisonous weeds, and a cart-load of rubbish; the weeds to be planted in the garden; the rubbish left on the door step, and the rats suffered to run loose through the house. Address,"’&c.
