Tea was de- [denounced] nounced [announced] first asa poison, and then as an extravagance, Cobbett [Corbett] was furious against it. An Edinburgh Reviewer, in 1323, keeps no termawith [Tamworth] its use by the poor We venture to assert that when a labourer fancies himself refreshed with a mess of this stuff, sweetened by the coarsest black sugar,, and with azure blue milk, it is only the warmth of the water that. soothes him for the moment unless, perhaps, the sweetness. may be palatable also. It is dangerous even for great reviewers to. ventare [to. centre] to assert.

[ord] THE Last EFFORT OF MACKLIN THE ACTOR.-Macklin acted till he was eighty-nine by his own computation, but there is good reason to believe that he was nine-nine at the time he left the stage. His memory had failed him on several occasions whilet [while] aeting,, [eating] previous to his last a pear- [appearance] ance. [once] On that night he had dragaed, [dragged] himself for Shylock with his usual accuracy, and' going into the green-rcom, [green-room] said to Mrs. Pope, My dear, are you to pley [play] to-night To be sure I am, Sir; why, don't you see- .am dressed for Portia very true, I had forgotton, [forgotten] but who is to 'play Shylock The imbecileone [imbecile one] of voice, and the inanity of look with which this last question was asked, caused a melancholy sensation in all who heard it; at last, Mrs. Pope, rousing herself, said, Wihiy, Whit] you, to be sure; are you not dressed fer thepart [the part He sesmed to [seemed to] recollect -himself, and putting his hand to-his forehead; exelaimed, [claimed] Heaven help me, my memory, I am afraid, hag-left me. After this, he went upon the stage and delivered a few of the speeches of Shylock in a manner which proved he did not understand what he was repeating After a while he resovered [resolved himagelf [himself] a little, but in vam, [am] nature could assist him no further, aad [and] aftex [after] ing some time, he came forward and said he was unable to proceed with the part. The audience accepted his apology with a mixed. app of indulgence and commiseration, and he retired from the stage for ever. A TURKIsH [Turkish] BaTH.-We [Bath.-We] went up stairs and undressed;, giving ouy- [out- Watches] watches and money to the attendant, who tied evr [er] aiothes [others] up in He then tucked a coloured f wrapper round our waists, and threw a towel over our shoulders, after which we walked down stairs, and put on some wooden clogs at the door of the next apartment. The. first thing these did was to over heels, to the- [great] great discomfiture of my temporary costume, and equal delight of the bathers there assembled. We remained in this room, which was of an increased temperature, idling upon other couches, until we were pronounced ready to go into the second chamber. I contrived, with great care and anxiety, to totter into it upon my clogs, and found another rtment [treatment] of marble, very warm indeed; and lighted from the top by a. dome of bull's-eyes. In the middle of this ehamber [chamber] was a hot raised octagon platform, also of 'marBle, [marble] and in the recesses of the sides were.mexbla. [were.blame] yases, [cases] and tanks, with taps for hot and and channels in the floor to carry off the-sads. [the-sad] Two savage unearthly boys, their heads all shaved, with the exception of a tuft on the top,.and in their scant costume of a towel only, looking more like wild Indians than Turks, now seized hold of me, and forcing me back upon the hot marble floor, com- [commenced] menced [mended] a dreadful series of tortures, such as I had only read of as pertaining to the dark It was of no use to resist. They clutched hold of the back of any nock, [neck] and ' thought they were going to ngle-me-;, [nile-me] then they pull at my arms and legs, and I again. they were going to put me when they both began to rol backwards [roll backwards] and forwards- [forward son] on my chest, doublmg [double] my cracking elbows underneath them, I thought, finally, that my last minute was come, and that death by suffocation would finish me. They were fiends, and evidently delighted in my agony not allowing me to look to the nght [night] or left after my corapanions, [companions] and throwing themselves on me again, whenever they conceived I was going to call the dragoman [Dragon] to my assistance. I do not know that I ever passed such a frightful five minutes, connected with bath-. ing, nervous as are some of the feelings which that pastime gives rise to. It is very tergible [terrible to take the-fires, summer lunge into a deep dark river, and when you, are at the Bottom, and the water is roaring in your ears, to think of dead bodies and crocodiles it is almost worse to make that. frightful journey down a steep beach,.in a.bathing machine, ith [it] a vague incertitude as to where you will find yourself when the doors open again but no' gome [home] up to what I suffered in last extremity,.in Thoughts of Turkish, craeky [creek] ond [and] the sacks of the Bosphorus of home,.and friends; and my childhood's bow- [bowers] ers,-of-the [es,-of-the ,-of-the] saducesof [seduces] being murdered in a foreign bath,- [bath] and the probability of my Giaour [GAO] body being eaten by the wild dogs, crowded rapidly on me, as these demons in- [increased] creased their tortures until, collecting all my strength for one last effort, I contrived te-tarow [te-throw] them. off, one to the right and the other to the left, some half dozen feet-and. regained my legs. The worst was now over, certainly but the persecution still continued sufficiently exciting. They seized on me again, and led me to the tanks, where they almost flayed me with horse-hair gloves, and drowned me with bowls of warm water, contifiuensly [confidently] on my head. I could.not seg, [se] and if I again tried to cry out, they thrust a large soapy swab, mayle [male] of the fibres that grow at the foot of the dete [dee] palm, into my. mouth, accompanying each repewediact [predict] of cruelty with, a demand for baksheesh. At last, being fairly exhausted themselves, they swathed me ina many towels and I was then helf [held] carried, half pushed, up stairs again, where I took my place upon my couch with feelings of t joy and t I now b to think all the por [or] oa I had undergone ' os by the delicious fpaling [failing] of re that stole overme. [over me] I felt that I could have stopped there for ever, with the fragrant coffee steaming at my.side, and the sooth- [soothing] ing bubble of the xarghiles [Giles] sounding in every direction. I went off into,a day dream-my last clear viston [Liston] being that of a man bgvin; [giving] ie head. shaved all but a top knot, which was long té twist round and round, under his fez-. and could scarcely believe that an hour had elapsed, when. the dragoman [Dragon] suggested our return to the. bustling world, Without.- [Without] Albert, Suith's [Smith's] Monthy [Month] Constantingple,.

Itis [Its] only necessary to mention the name of Mrs. Loudon, to recall to the reader's memory the clever writings of that lady on horticulture. She was lately in the neighbourhood of Strathfieldsaye, and being anxious to visit spots remark- [remarkable] able for fine specimens of the vegetable world, she wrote to the duke, conveying her desire to see some beeches, for which tho gardens of his grace were celebrated. The letter was duly delivered, and.the duke, raising. his glasses and glancing at the contents, his eye caught hastily thesigna- [designate- the signature] ture [true] of the note, C. J.
