Presumably you're talking about Ruby on Rails. Have you seen this?

Assuming that you are talking about Rails, you just need to set the
appropriate order in the query. So, to get from the last item created
to the first, you could add ":order => 'id DESC'". If you want them in
ascending order *within* each page, then you need to call reverse on
the result of that.

Finally, there's a separate mailing list for Ruby *on Rails* - this is
a more general list (to which you are apparently posting via
nabble.com). For Rails-specific questions, you'll probably get better
response in the appropriate list.
