In addition to a list of the figures in our national and fashion- [fashionable] able dances, the book abounds with instruction on dancing in general, the etiquette of the ball room, hints on the leading points of politeness, to be observed in cultivated society, to which is also added a valuable glossary of the foreign terms used in connection with la dance.

PREPARING FoR [For] Action.-A housemaid who was sent to call a gentleman to dinner, found him engaged in using his tooth-brush.

Our first, education-so important, from the indelible nature of young impressions, and the ductile promptness with which they are received -depends solely on female tuition, to the exclusion of paternal care and school instruction but, above all, the educa- [Edgar- education] tion [ion] of the heart and the development of the affections, are wholly the work of the softer sex. Happy, thrice happy, the child who has a good mother The effect of any writing on the public mind is mathematically measurable by its depth- [depth of] of thought.

The way to speak and write what shall not go out of fashion is, to speak and write sincerely. The argument which has not power to reach my own practice I may well doubt will fail to reach yours. But take Sidney's maxim Look in thy heart, and write. He that writes to himself writes to an eternal public. That statement only is fit to be made public, which you have come at in attempting to satisfy your own curiosity. Car's Heap BomteD.-Wash [Bolted.-Wash] it very clean, parboil one-half, beat up the yoke of an egg, and rub it over the head with a feather, then strew over it a seasoning of pepper, salt, thyme, parsley chopped small, shred lemon peel, bread, and a little nutmeg; stick bits of butter over it, and send it to the oven; boil the other half white in a cloth, put them both into the dish, boil the brains in a bit of cloth, with a very little parsley, and a leaf or two of sage when they are boiled, chop them small, and warm them up in a saucepan, with a bit of butter and a little pepper and salt; lay the tongue, boiled and peeled, in the middle of a dish, and the brains round it have in another dish bacon or pickled pork greens and carrots in another. To Prepare ButrER [Butter] FoR [For] WINTER.-When the butter has been prepared, take two parts of the best common salt, one part of good loaf sugar, and one part of salt- [saltpetre] petre, [Peter] beaten and blended well together. Of this com position put one ounce to sixteen ounces of butter, and work it well together in a mass. Press it into the pans after the butter is become cool-for friction, though it be not touched by the hands, will soften it. The pans should hold ten or twelve pounds each. On the top put some salt, and when that is turned to brine, if not enough to cover the butter entirely, add some strong salt and water. It requires only then to be covered from the dust. OF THE Unirep [Unripe] States-The popula- [popular- population] tion [ion] of the North American colonies, which afterwards became the thirteen United States, was, in 1753, esti- [est- estimated] Mated 1,051,000 At the revolution, in 1776, it was...... 2,500,000 Tn 1790.2... 8,929,827 sewer 5,305,925 1810.00... 7,229,814 9,638,131 12,866,920 ee 17,063,353 The census now taking for 1850 will, at the rate of in- [increase] crease which has hitherto been maintained, show the population to be 23,027,694, but, in consequence of in territory, and a great additional stimulus given to emigration, we anticipate a grand total of about 25,000,000. The same rate of increase continued to the year 1900 will raise the population of the United States to more than 100,000,000 LONGFELLOW, THE AMERICAN PoErt.-He [Port.-He] was rather under the middle size but gracefully formed, and ex- [extremely] tremely [extremely] prepossessing in his general appearance. His hair was light-coloured, and tastefully disposed. Below a fine forehead gleamed two of the most beautiful eyes I had ever beheld in any human head. One seemed to gaze far into their azure depths. A very sweet smile, not at all of the pensively-poetical character, lurked about the well-shaped mouth, and altogether the ex- [expression] pression [Prussian] of Henry Wordsworth Lonfellow's [Fellow's] face was most winning. He was very fashionably- [fashionably almost] almost too much so; a blue frock coat, of Parisian cut, a handsome waistcoat, faultless pantaloons, and which was not a moment still-for, like a butterfly glancing from flower to flower, he was tripping from one lady to another, admired and courted by all. He shook me cordially by the hand, introduced me to his lady, invited me to his house, and then he was off again like a humming bird -Home Circle. Broken Sprrrirs.- [Sparrows.- Sparrows] We read sometimes of broken hearts; pretty, poetic things, no doubt, and perhaps true. Broken spirits, at any rate, there are. Oh, yes the spirit breaks, but not for love. Love is the dream of early youth, and the spirit breaks not then. Youth has itself the elements of so much happiness; its energy, its hope, its trust, its fond belief that every- [everything] thing is beautiful, that every one is true, and its warm affections all give a buoyancy, and ever-moving prin- [pain- principle] ciple [Copley] of joy; and though the spirit bow, it breaks not then. It is in after years, when stern experience has become our teacher, when the bright glowing hue of hope has passed away, and, in its place, dark shadows fall; when all life's billows have swept over us, and each succeeding wave has left its furrows on the soul ; oh, then it is the spirit breaks, and all man's boasted energy gives way.-Glances at Human Nature. A YANKEE OraToR.-A [Orator.-A] writer-in the New Englander, describing the eloquence of one Rufus Choate, [Chat] says, He would commence like an eagle soaring from his eyric, [eric] and continue his onward and upward flight over the mountain tops, up higher and higher still, and still higher, until he became a companion of the clouds. Often when he finished a period in his happiest and most thrilling style, the listener would involuntarily look up to see if the thunderbolt he had launched from his lips had not perforated the roof of the hall What wonderful men and things does America produce Mrs. Partincton [Partington] on Epucation.-For [Education.-For] my part I can't deceive what on airth [Firth] eddication [education] is cummin' [common] to. When I was young, if a gal only understood the rules of distraction, provision, multiplying, replenishing, and the common denominator, and knew all about the rivers, and their obituaries, the covenants and dormitaries, [dormitories] the provinces and the umpires, they had eddication [education] enough. But now they have to study bottomy, [bottom] algerbay, [algebra] and have to demonstrate suppositions about the sycophants of circusstangents [circumstances] and diagonies [diagnoses] of parallelograms, to say nothing of oxhides, [hides] asheads, [ashes] cowsticks, [sticks] and abstruse triangles. (And here the old lady was so confused with the technical names that she was forced to stop.) Evus [Eves] or Favtt-Finpinc.-We [Fact-Finance.-We] exert a more health- [healthful] ful [full] and permanent infiuence [influence] on another, by giving every possible encouragement to the good parts of his charac- [character- character] ter, [te] than by direct notice of the bad; and that by thus strengthening the good, we give the person a more dis- [discerning] cerning [concerning] perception of his own fatlings, [failings] and a greater control over them, than we can ever attain by merely counselling him directly against his errors. In propor- [proper- proportion] tion [ion] as a monitor within exceeds in weight and authority a monitor without, so does the one method excel the other. It is, besides, very difficult for two friends to preserve thorough confidence in each other after the direct notice of faults. In spite of our best endeavours, a feeling, however slight, of mortification creeps in to disturb the permanence of the influence; and, though the fault may be corrected, that feeling may destroy the future power of the counsellor to benefit his friend. To take my own case, for example, I can truly say that, when witnessing the never-failing kindness and sym- [sum- sympathy] pathy [path] shown by you and yours with the sufferings of your fellow-creatures, I have not only felt my own bet- [better] ter [te] feelings roused into purer and higher action, but I have felt. my selfishness rebuked within me, and seen my deficiencies with a keener and more improving eye than if you, or any one else, had plainly told me that you perceived them, and wished to warn me against them. There are cases, and especially in the instance of the guardians of youth, in which the direct notice of faults is called for, and proves beneficial but this seems to me to hold good only where the one possesses a natural authority over the other, and to which the other feels himself naturally enough subject. Among equals in mature age, I doubt the propriety or benefit of the plan of direct naming of faults, and whether we do not, in following it, the rule of Judge not, &c. We can rarely tell the precise motives o another.- [another] Life of Andrew Combe.

How To Preserve Hams THe [The] YorRKSHIRE [Yorkshire] WayYy.- [Way.- Way] Beat them well; mix half a peck of salt, three ounces of saltpetre, half an ounce of salt prunella, [Parnell] five pounds of coarse sugar; rub the hams well with this, lay the remainder on the top; let them lie three days, then hang them up; put as much water to the pickle as will cover the hams, adding. salt till it will bear an egg boil and strain it; the next morning put in the hams, press them down so that they may be covered let them lie a fortnight rub them well with bran dry them. The above ingredients are sufficient for three middling sized hams.

Absence, however, wrought a different change from that anticipated, and in a short time each wrote to the other on the same day, the lady announcing that she had become a Jewess, and the gentleman that he had become a Christian. When they met, the obstacles were as great as before, and how they have arranged the matter has not transpired. He wHo [who] Runs may REaD. -No [Read. -No] such passage exists in the Scriptures, though it is constantly quoted as from them. It is usually the accompaniment of expres- [express- expressions] sions [Sons] relative to the clearness of meaning or direction, the suppositious allusion being to an inscription written in very large characters. The text in the prophet Habakkuk is the following Write the vision and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth [reader] it. (Chap. ii., verse 2.) Here, plainly, the meaning is, that every one reading the vision should be alarmed by it, and should fly from the impending calamity; and although this involves the notion of legibility and clearness, that notion is the secondary, and not the primary one, as those persons make it who misquote in the manner stated and Tae [Tea] Bible itself (as Professor Maclagan [Callaghan] has said) is a standing and an astonishing miracle. Written fragment by fragment throughout the course of fifteen centuries, under different states of society and in different languages, by persons of the most opposite tempers, talents, and conditions, learned and unlearned, prince and peasant, bond and free cast into a form of instructive composition and good writing- [writing history] history, prophecy, poetry, allegory, emblematic representation, judicious interpretation, liberal statement, precept, example, proverbs, disquisition, epistle, sermon, prayer -in short, all rational shapes of human discourse, and treating, moreover, of subjects not obvious, but most difficult-its authors are not found, like other writers, contradicting one another upon the most i matter of fact and opinion, but are at harmony upon the whole of their sublime and momentous scheme. Con. BY THE ARCHBISHOP OF DuBLin,-It [Dublin,-It] is at table, however, his Grace of Dublin breaks out into his most humorous moods. His greatest delight is to invite the greatest scholars of the university and capital to the palace, and when they expect to have profound topics introduced, to puzzle them with riddles. When Jenny Lind was in Dublin (this I have upon personal authority) he entertained her (for he is given to hospitality) in a very handsome manner, and had all the learned pundits, peers, and generals in Dublin to meet her. When the Nightingale expected to hear the grave and reverend dinner party plunge at once in philosophy, the Arch- [Archbishop] bishop startled her by asking aloud the Vice-Provost of Trinity College, who faced him at table, Why white sheep eat more than black sheep The Vice-Provost and his brother sages puzzled themselves for a long more foolish, than another for the phenomenon, until General Blackeney, [blackened] thinking of Charles the Second's proposition to the Philosophical Society about the dead cat, exclaimed with exultation, But the white sheep don't eat more than the black sheep, your Grace. But they do, General, answered the Archbishop. Do you give it up, Miss Lind-do you give it up, my lords and gentlemen and he looked down the table. We do, we do, cried they all. The white sheep eat more than the black, of course, said his Grace, because there are more of them -Bristol Times. PuBLic [Public] BaTHS [Baths] AND WASH-HOUSES AT OxFoRD.-P. [Oxford.-P] B. Duncan, Esq., M.A., late fellow of New College, has muni- [uni- munificently] ficently [recently] given another subscription of 500, in addition to his former subscription of the same amount, towards this excellent object, which is calculated to improve both the health and moral condition of the humbler classes of that city. The Dean and Chapter of Christ Church have also subscribed 200, on condition that the entire sum which is required for the purpose be raised or promised before the last day of the present yer Mr. Duncan's second sub- [subscription] scription [description] is also given under condition, viz., that the work shall be commenced early in the ensuing spring. The amount subscribed is nearly 2,000; another 1,000, it is estimated, will be required to carry out this benevolent esign. [sign] Se FASHIONS FOR NOVEMBER. Dresses.-Several for the winter season have just appeared, made of royal Pekin, or black damask, trim- [trimmed] med with two broad flounces of Cambray [Cambric] lace, each volant [violent] having for a heading a triple row of narrow gauze ribbon, fluted; these rows are placed close to each other, and form a very rich style of riche, [rich] about a finger in width. Instead of a corsage, a petit-corsage [petite-corsage] is worn of the same material, and closed at the waist with two double buttons, or a large bow of ribbon; this cor sage is edged round the lower part with a deep lace, which just touches the top of the upper flounce upon the skirt, headed with a similar riche [rich] to that part on the jupe; [June] the sleeves are sometimes made in the pagoda form, and sometimes cut square towards the lower part; opening at the sides, and encircled with a double riche [rich] of ribbon; at the edge of which is fulled a deep lace; this lace is caught up towards the inside of the arm, so as to show the under sleeve of English embroidery, intermixed with Valenciennes [Valentines] lace, or formed of inlet, trimmed with Mechlin [Machine] lace; or, what is still prettier, made entirely of English point lace; of course they must always harmonise with the chemisette [chemist] and guimpe [jump] worn inside the casaque. [case] We also have observed several elegant skirts made of black antique moire, accompanied by a petit [petite] casaque [case] of plain black velvet, made without trimming or ornament of any kind, and lined with moire; the simplicity of this toilette is considered in fringes and Cambray [Cambric] lace will be much used this winter in the decorating of dresses. A new style of fringe, indeed, has just been brought out, forming a most splendid description of trimming for velvet dresses. Another very elegant style of costume, are the dresses made of damask, of an ash colour, shot with pink, trimmed with raches [reaches] of ribbon. Ball Dresses Several veryJelegant [virulent] costumes are now in preparation for the ensuing gay time, winter being the very season for this kind of amusement. Our first courturiéres [cartridges] are delighted with a new style of fringe, which has just been brought out for decorating of this kind of costume; it is extremely light, and composed of a mixture of white and gold, which forms a splendid trimming when placed upon a tripple [triple] skirt of white tulle. It is also made of pink and silver, which has a beautiful effect upon a dress of pink crépe, [crape] splendid bouquets of beautiful flowers being arranged so as to loop up the skirt on either side. Head Dresses Those intended for the opera are made of very light materials. We may cite as one of the latest novelties, a petit [petite] bonnet of tulle and blonde, decorated with peacock's feathers,-having an original effect. A very novel and pretty style of has also just appeared, consisting of light leaves inter- [intermixed] mixed with flowers; the crown being formed entirely of leaves, ornamented on each side with large drooping clusters. Capotes [Carpets] are now becoming more and more in vogue; their style, in general, is very simple we may cite the following as of the latest fashion, composed of dark-coloured satins, [saints] the interior of the fronts lined with white, rose, or any other fresh and becoming hue. For ornamenting these capotes, [carpets] branches composed of velvet are preferred, of the same colour as the exterior ood [od] of the capote; [teapot] or, what is almost prettier, noouds [nods] of plaided ribbon, half velvet, half satin, the colours of course harmonising well with the material of which the capote [teapot] is formed. Caps are now composed of plain tulle of the lightest description, the crown being formed nearly entirely of bouillonnés, [billions] or puffs; les. touffes [tiffs] lattrales, [lateral] composed of tulle, and laines [lines] formed of rib-. bon, [on] or an argraffe [agra] of flowers, are the most general le of ornaments for these pretty little caps.- [caps] World of Fashions. time, giving one reason more learned, and therefore - very good taste. We may here remark, that both idea how to shoot a delightful task, certainly, but limited in the sphere of its usefulness. The enlighten- [enlightenment] ment [men] of the sort of darkness that prevails among clowns and 'squires was an object of great importance; but Mr. Cobden and his coadjutors feel, that the time has arrived when the popular teacher must do something more than 'instruct rural simplicity to distinguish between the right hand and the left, and to discriminate the caseous [cases] product of Cheshire from the material which constitutes the Hampshire Downs. To the general inculcation of the fact that-two and two make four, they intend to add instruction in all the rules of arithmetic, and in mathe- [mate- mathematics] matics, [Matins] as. also in the English and other languages, living and dead, together with history, geography-in- [including] cluding, [including] of course, the use of the globes-geology, chemistry, natural philosophy, and the elements of anatomy, physiology, medicine, and jurisprudence. For further particulars relative to their contemplated undertaking, see the proceedings of the Conference of its friends and supporters, who met on the 30th ultimo, at the Mechanics' Institution, Manchester, and resolved themselves intoa [into] Society, entitled the National Publie [Public] School Association. The National Public School will be a juvenile extention [extension] of the original Manchester educational establishment. It will be a real seminary for young ladies and gentlemen composing the mass of the community, intended to imbue them with common sense and common information, notwithstand- [not withstand- notwithstanding] ing that their frocks may be made of calico, and their trousers of. corduroy. The clergy of different persua- [persuade- persuasions] sions [Sons] are pacticularly [particularly] invited to patronise this Academy, as the reverend gentlemen may each rest assured that no doctrines con to his own will be inculcated there. In other words, the instruction given in the National School will be simply secular. Matters of faith and opinion would by all means be taught in the School, as well as matters of fact and science, were it- [into] not that equity would demand that every variety of clergyman should 'be allowed to preach to the pupils, in turn; an expedient which would be attended with much incon- [income- inconvenience] venience, [convenience] and some confusion, and after all, most probably, would not answer the end proposed. For the funds to the success of their grand under- [undertaking] taking, its promoters look to the Government; on which they intend to call for the institution of a general 'system of secular instruction, maintained by local rates, and managed by local authorities. The prime object of their Association at present is toarouse [to arouse] public opinion to the urgency and importance of their demand, which is opposed only by stinginess and bigotry. But the stinginess which grudges a school-rate is punished with prison expenses, and the bigotry which denies informa- [inform- information] tion [ion] has had already some return in kind; and, in case of continued obstinacy, may reap its final reward in a papal interdict. Mr. C. and his colleagues hope that these considera- [consider- considerations] tions [tins] will have due weight, and trust to be enabled by the good sense of Parliament to meet their young friends shortly after the vacation. LANDED PROPERTY IN ENGLAND AND FRANCE. (From Tait's Edinburgh Magazine.) In Great Britain everything conduces to the aggrega- [aggregate- aggregation] tion [ion] of landed property into large masses and into few hands. Law, custom, circumstance, and the hereditary prejudices which grow out of all these and react upon them, all tend in the same direction. The old military and feudal system necessitated the undivided descent of land; the aristocratic feeling which survived this necessity still continues the custom; and economic writers are beginning to discover much sound policy and right feeling in a proceeding which at first sight seems at variance with both. Many properties are entailed from generation to generation upon the eldest son, 80 that the existing proprietor is only a hampered life tenant this is a system which it is impossible to reprobate too strongly. If a man dies intestate, the law decides that all his real estates shall descend to the eldest son and the law hasso [has] modified the feelings and ideas of men (which are apt, as we know, to run in ruts) that when wills are made, they are generally pervaded by the same spirit which dictated and which maintains the law; and the large portion, if not the whole, of the landed property of the deceased commonly follows the rule of primogeniture. The consequence of these influences, operating through many centuries, is, that with 18,000,000 of people in England and Wales, the number of landed proprietors is supposed not much to exceed 180,000 or one cent of the population, or five per cent of the heads of families. Now, as England and Wales contain about 37,000,000 of acres, exclusive of water, this would give 200 acres as the average size of properties. Of course the chief part of the land is held in far larger masses. In France, on the contrary, the land of a deceased proprietor is divided equally (or nearly so) among all his children. If he dies intestate, the law divides it for him, according to this plan if he makes a will, he must make it in conformity with this plan. No choice is left him. This law of compulsory partition has now been in active operation for sixty years; it dates from 1791. It is more cherished by Frenchmen than any other law; it is the only law which they obey unmurmuringly it em- [embodies] bodies and expresses their sole idea of liberty-because it breathes equality. Strange that an enactment so restrictive, so hampering, so fatal to man's power of doing what he will with his own, of bestowing as he pleases what he has inherited, or what he has acquired -a law which, by an Englishman, would be resented and shaken off as an intolerable and unjust tyranny- [tyranny should] should be worshipped by a Frenchman as containing all he knows of freedom Yet so itis. [its] Under the opera- [operation] tion [ion] of this law, the land of France has become sub- [subdivided] divided to a degree which is felt to be so perilous and injurious, that the process has at length been checked ; no further morcellement [measurement] ig taking place, and even a slight reaction is observable. Jn a population of 36,000,000, above 4,250,000 are proprietors of land; or 12 per cent. of the inhabitants, and about 55 per cent. of the heads of families. The average size of the estates held by each proprietor is under twenty-four acres; while of the 11,500,000 properties into which the land was divided in 1842, 5,500,000 were assessed at less than five francs to the contribution fonciere, [sincere] or land tax, which is generally fixed at about a sixth part of the annual value; that is to say, half the properties in France were only worth 25s. a year; two of these properties being generally held by one individual. M. Sullin [Selling] de Chateauvieux, [Chateaux] one of the best authorities, divides the proprietors of France into three great classes -the small proprietors, who are 3,900,000 in number, and own, on an average, nine acres each; the middling class, estimated at 700,000, who own about fifty acres each; and the large proprietors, who may be 200,000 in number, and whose properties reach 200 acres. eee [see] CONVERSATION WITH M'NAUGHTEN [M'NAUGHT] AND OXFORD, THE REGICIDES. (From Blackwood's Magazine.) Upwards of seven years have elapsed since the trial of MIN. aughten, [eighteen] and upwards of ten years since that of Oxford and both of them are at the present moment inmates of Bethlehem Hospital. Since commencing this article we have been permitted, through the courtesy of the acute and able physician to whom the superintendence of that important institution has been for some years intrusted, [instructed] to see and converse with the two persons with whose fate we have herein so anxiously concerned ourselves. Neither knew of our going; and we were accompanied by the gentleman in question. M'Naughten [M'Naught] was standing in the courtyard, dressed in the costume of the place (a pepper-and-salt jacket and corduroy trousers), with his hat on, knitting. He looks about forty years old, and in perfect health. His features are regular, and their expression is mild and prepossessing. His manner is tranquil. Usually he wears his hat somewhat slouched over his eyes, and sidles slowly away from any one approaching him, as if anxious to escape observation but on this occasion he at once entered into conversation with our companion, calmly and cheerfully, and afforded us a full opportunity 'of watching him. Had we seen him casually elsewhere, and as a stranger, we should have thought his counte- [county- countenance] nance indicative of a certain sort of cheerful quiet humour, especially while he was speaking but to us it seemed certainly to exhibit a feeble intellect, shown chiefly by a faint flickering smile, even when he was speaking on the gravest subjects. When asked what had brought him where he was, he replied, Fate. And what is fate The will of God, or perhaps, he ddded [added] quickly, of the devil, or it may be of both and he half closed his eyes, and smiled.- The reader will bear in mind what was deposed at the trial, as to his infidel tendencies. When told that Sir Robert Peel was dead he betrayed no emotion, nor exhibited the slightest interest. 'One should have thought that, considering what has happened, you would have felt some interest in that gentleman. He looked rather quickly at the speaker, and said calmly, with a faint smile, It is quite useless to talk to me on that sub- [subject] ject [jet you know quite well I have long and long ago made up my mind never to say one word about it. I never have, and I never will and so it would be quite childish to put any questions. ' How are you, M'Naughten [M'Naught He slightly sighed, and said, I am very uncomfortable. I am very ill-used here there is somebody (or something) always using me ill here. It is really too bad I have spoken about it many, many times but it is quite useless. I wish I could get away from this place. If I could just get out of this place, and go back to Glasgow, my native place, it is all I would ask for; I should be quite well there I shall never be well or happy here, for there is always some i Well, but what do they do to one ill-using me here. you Oh, shaking his head, and smiling, they are made to eat; and it was actually necessary to feed him for a considerable time mechanically, by means of the stomach pump. Under this treatment he presently re- [regained] gained his flesh, in spite, as it were, of himself; and at length suffered himself to be laughed out of his obsti- [obstinate- obstinacy] nacy, [navy] and has ever since taken his food voluntarily. He seemed himself to be tickled by a sense of the absurdity of which he was guilty. Not a doubt of his complete ineanity.was [insanity.was] entertained by my acute companion, who has devoted much observation to the case. Shortly after we had quitted him, and were out of his sight, he put away his knitting, placed his hands in his jacket pockets, and walked very rapidly to and fro, his face bent on the ground and he was apparently somewhat excited. Whatever may have been the state of M'Naughten [M'Naught] at the time to which our enquiries have been directed in this article, we entertain little, if any, doubt that he is now in an imbecile condition. Oxford was in another part of the building, standing alone, at the extremity of a long corridor, gazing through a heavily-grated window, towards the new houses of parliament. His hat was on, he was dressed like M'Naughten, [M'Naught] and his jacket was buttoned. Wescarcely [We scarcely] recognised him, owing to the change of his dress. He is fond of attracting the notice of anybody, and con- [conversed] versed about himself and his offence in the most calm and rational manner conceivable. He has lost much of his hair, a circumstance which he appeared somewhat to regret, for the front of his head is bald; but he looks no older than his real age, thirty. He is mortally weary of his confinement, and says he has been terribly pun- [punished] ished [shed] for his foolish act. Foolish we exclaimed ; is that all you can say of your attempt to shoot her Majesty He smiled and said, Oh, Sir, I never at- [attempted] tempted to shoot her I never thought of such a thing. at the carriage panels only. Then why did you put balls into your pistols I never did, he re- [replied] plied quickly. I never dreamed of such a thing. There were no balls. Oh, then you have not heard of the discovery that has just been made, eh Disco- [Discovery] very-what [what The bullets. Oh, there have been more found than ever I used at least for I assure you I never used any What made you do what you did Oh, I was a fool; it was just to get myself talked about, and kick up a dust. A good horsewhipping was what I wanted, he added, with a faint sigh. These were his very words. Should you have done it if you had thought of coming here No, indeed, I should not it has been a severe punishment. ' I dare say public opinion says nothing about me now; I dare say it thinks I have got what I very well deserve, and per- [perhaps] haps I have but possibly if I were put quietly out of the way, and sent abroad somewhere, public opinion might take no notice of it. He has taught himself French, Italian, and German, of which he has a fair knowledge. He also used to draw a little, and began to . write a novel; but it proved a sorry affair, and being discouraged, he threw it up. Do you recollect hear- [hearing] ing the condemned sermon preached to Courvoisier [Cruiser] Oh, yes, very well. It was a most excellent sermon. Did Courvoisier [Cruiser] seem to attend to it Oh, yes, very much and he seemed very much effected. It was cer- [er- certainly] tainly [mainly] a very appropriate sermon; I liked it much. Did not you think that it might soon be your fate to sit where he was What in the condemned seat Yes. Oh, no; that never occurred to me. I never expected to be condemned for high treason. Some gentleman, I forget who he was, said I should be transported for fourteen years. I thought that was the worst they could tome; for I knew I had never meant to do any harm, nor tried to do it. Yes, but the judge and jury thought very differently. Oh, I was fairly tried but I never expected to be brought in mad. I was quite surprised at that, for I knew I was not mad, and I wondered how they were going to prove it. We asked him if he had ever seen us to which he replied, gazing steadily, Yes; I think I have, either at the privy council, or in Newgate Chapel. Where did you sit on the Sunday when the condemned sermon was preached to Courvoisier [Cruiser 'I sate on the steps near the altar. How were you dressed Oh, a blue surtout, with velvet collar and he proceeded to describe his dress almost exactly as we have described it at the commencement of this article. He exhibits considerable cleverness a whatever he does, whether in playing at fives, or working .g. making gloves, &c.,) he does far better than any one else, and shows consider- [considerable] able tact and energy in setting his companions to work, and superintending them. He admits that he committed a very great offence in having done any thing to alarm the Queen, and attributes it entirely to a mischievous and foolish love of notoriety. He said, I thought it would set every body talking and wondering but never dreamed of what would have come of it, least of all that I were to be shut up all my life in this place. ' That list of conspirators, and letters from them, that were found in your lodgings, were they not real -' Oh, no, he replied, with rather an anxious smile all mere sham a There was never any thing of the sort. -' Then why did you do it '- It was only the folly of a boy; I was'nt nineteen then. It was very silly, no doubt - And their swords and dresses, and so forth, eh '- Entirely nonsense. It was a very absurd joke. I did not think it would come out so serious. I did not appreciate the consequence, or I never would have done it, The word appreciate he used with a marked emphasis, We entertain no doubt whatever of his perfect sanity ; and ij so, a8 his crime was great, so his punishment is fearful. of Bunch.

A gentleman who has had the misfortune to reside there for the last three years, was asked what he thought of the improvement.

An ATToRNEY-GENERAL [Attorney-GENERAL] FOR EVERYBODY.-It as often been said, that, to secure the ends of justice, we want a Public Prosecutor in this country. The truth of that assertion was never so manifest as it is now, when every- [everybody] body feels how much such an officer is wanted, in order to prosecute the right of way though Glen Tilt. SHockine [Shocking] Case oF EXPECTED CANNIBALISM.-It is feared that Lord Grosvenor and the Lord Mayor, despite the exertions of Leeks, the Hon.

Hatt, [That] ARCHDEACON-WELL Mert.-Archdeacon [Meet.-Archdeacon] Hale has addressed a spirited letter to the clergy of the Archdeaconry of London, in reference to the papal aggression. We regret to learn from it that the reverend gentleman has been labouring under indisposition; but we hope that he is now not only Hale but hearty, like the tone of his epistle,-the pluck of which is singular, whatever may be the preferment of the writer. ei UNGUARANTEED [GUARANTEED] RaiLway [Railway] Stock.-Messrs. Railton and Sons have addressed the following circular to their friends - In reference to our last week's statement, ending with the 22nd ult. inclusive, of the unguaranteed [guaranteed] capital of the twenty-three most marketable lines we started with on the 26th of April last, at the then price-by taking one share in each-amounting together to 733 16s. 3d., we have now to state the result with the week ending with Friday inclusive, which shows no variation in the three lines, a loss of 24 17s. 6d. on nineteen lines, and a gain of 1 on one line, or 3 5s. 3d. per cent to deduct from the 19 12s. 3d. gain per cent at the end of the former week; leaving the total gain since the 26th of April 16 7s. per cent, or 119 12s. 2d. profit on the outlay of 733 16s.

To whatever the sudden change in the state of the railway share market may be ascribed, it is very certain that the want of better information along with the weekly statement of the traffic returns ve materially retard [regard] the return of public confidence to way property in every respect, and it behoves shareholders to procure it through the duty of the board of directors ; otherwise, how can any one unacquainted with the fact come near to the knowledge of a robable [probable] dividend, without an estimate can be formed of the covering e to set against it A weekly return of the unpaid overdue calls is another important item to be stated, and the pur- [our- purposes] poses to which they apply.
