We understand that a zoological garden is about to be formed here by Mr. Cross. The spot selected for this purpose is an excellent one, The Royal Gardens, at the north of town, to which Mr. Cross intends to remove the whole of his establishment from the King's Mews, in London, that building being about to be converted into a Record-office. As a part of the arrangements, the cricketing ground must, we regret to say, be broken up, a cupola will be erected, an alligator pond will be formed, and the saloon will be made a museum.–Brighton Gazette.
