What is the Most Beautiful!
A TALE AFTER THE MANNER OF BOCCACCIO.
BT BE. CASs'EDY.
N'o there lived ."n the country called
Spin, in tin c : hmg gone by, a set of young
e-.htieuian, who styled themselves Pnihjxo
; . - and who met once in every week to
lii-nj., such fjucstioiis as might be brought
U-forc them. It so fell out that they were
otiee called upon to decide what was ino-it
I' autiful ; and many and various were the
ar;."ii!ii hts brought forward by each of them.
Now, it hchoveth us as ready chroniclers, to
i-furui those of the present day what was
tie; di ci-ion of that learned assembly, to the
-:A that our young readers may see w hat
tL'i-e; of former days deemed mo-t beautiful.
Vi'lir.n the assembly were all convened,
ati-1 the proposition was laid before them,
tv re were some who said the question could
l e decided, for beauty was but a mere
i..i;t'-r of opinion, and consequently none
v ild be willing to give up his tastes to the
ar.'iments of any other; but there were
Hicr, and these by far the greater part,
vio deemed it meet to li.-ten to the argu-i.i-nts
of that body, and so the question was
iii 1 before them.
i irt there rose a young gentleman, pale
:. complexion, slight in figure, graceful in
'y 'jaranee, and subdued in nanutr, and be
:.js addressed the assembly:
"Mo-t excellent signorc, it eccmcth to
the mo.-t unworthy member of this wise
iy, that the question which your excel
" -i'-s have propscd is one that admittcth
' 1' ut little argument, for it must be appar

scat, there ran a murmur of applau.se
, I . , .i ii r I I
throughout tho assembly j for bo bad ex-
pressed the opiuion of numbers of its niein
bcrs. Hut then there rose an individual of
much distinction among them, and said,

that I sho Id goon to speak of all that is beau-1

'for. now that to what has already been de-
; scribed by a poet of nature, I have added
all that man has produced naught eUe re-
maineth to be said." '
As this speaker took bis scat, met of the
persons in tne room were oi opinion mat tne
matter was already settled, and needed no
further discussion ; but a young gentleman
.1 ... i i i .!... i.- .. : i . i ...

heard, inasmuch as Ins views were ditl. rctit
form any that had yet been expressed. They
Dignified their ready willingness to listen,
and be begati :
" My brethren of this body well kno.v
that I have travelled much, and vi-ited ma
ny different lands, and I select what I am
now about to relate, as the most beautiful
of all the things I have ever seen, and, more
over, I am well convinced that all others
will soon fall into my way of thinking when
they have heard my story. Iu a far-distant
i island there Jived two men who were both
j lovers of tho sauio fair damsel. One of
'them was a nobleman in the land, and equal
jiu rank to the lady. He was powessed of
many attractions, both of body and mind,
l.n.1 :-t.i .a . i.,....-
niiU fiituui wii'i iiuv Bii'i ai'ii u a r; i
as ever lived; while the other had no at-
traclion beyond his power of mind, and was
far inferior in station to the ludy of his love.
Xow the laws of the island so ordained it
that no maiden mi -.hi marry with any one
who was beneath her in gentle blood, and
yet tae maiden's preferences were all in fa-
vor of the peasant, which, as soon as the
nobleman had di.-covered, although be could
t . .i ii i i i i . i
nave naa tne lany s nana i.y rij.ni, lor ner
parents were in his favor, yet he visited the
obscure peasant, aud, finding that he was a
man of genius aud worth, he soon, by the tions by theriA who were true to Kosutii
power of his station, elevated him to the i-.ni, was mainly that they are of no practical
rank of a gentleman, and placed iu his reach
the means of procuring interviews with the
lady, whom be soon afterwards married,
And after this generous deed, the no' le man's
love was still so strong towards the lady,
thaf, being unable to conquer it he made a
will leavini; to her all of his immense e.-tates,
and perished by his own hand. Xow this,
do I deem most beautiful."
It was evident after this speaker bad fin
ished, that the assembly was beginning to
be divided some taking the part of the la.-t
speaker, and others persisting that they
were in the right. Alter him, there arose
one and another, some contending for one
thing, aud some for another. ( tne said there
was nothing more beautiful than a maiden
weeping over the couch of a deceased lover; !
another that an act of charity bestowed tip- j
on an enemy was loveliest, ftomc ail that

man, nobly bustaiuing the reverses of for-
tune was mod beautilul; others, that the
natural love of two young people was most
enchanting; and others, that there was
thing perfectly beautiful beneath the skies;

of the beautiful, and often in my boy

something lovely, and if I bavc found it, I
have sat for hours and dreamed over it, or,
if it was away, I would call it up, and dwell
on it with delight. As I grew older my
passion for the beautiful grew more intense,
nor did it leave me when I reached my
man's estate, for I bad scarcely completed
my twentieth year, when I started to roam
the world all over to gratify this passion.

FUKEH.N AND NATIVE PoPL I.ATION.
Among the other interesting items of in
formation communicated by the Census re
turn, ii that relating to the number of peo
ple in the United States of foreign birth
If tin e returns be correct, the common
computation is much too large. Many have
supposed thrtt the Iii-h alone amounted to
three millions and that the Germans did
not fall much short of two millions. It ap
pears, however, that there are very little
over two millions in all. W'e believe this
li-'ure to be less than the fact.
"hals, no doubt, omitted many; but it is
reus, niihle to supp le that they did not omit
ver a million.
The following article, from th New York
Herald, will posses interest for all our rea
ders. W'e are not jn danger, as many ap
prehend, of bi ing swamped by the I orei.Mi
population. Their inllueiiee is only felt in
cities, and in certain parts of cities, and that
only tor a brief period. The native element
so creatly predominates, that all foreign a 1-

While the basis of the American popula
tion must be admitted to be Anglo-Saxon
an 1 Anglo-Norman, so great is the infusion
of foreign elements, t hat it would be no small

Home, in its early days, pursued the same
course and the bold adventurers of every
neighboring Stale, when defeated at hon.e,
lied to Home as to a safe refuge. Inlepen-
dently of this source of foreign popu'ution,
we have reason to believe, that Latin Koine
wnsa.. thoroughly subdued by the Sabines
as Ango-Saxon England was by the Nor
mans ; and it was the glovy of Nunia's r ign

Tho effect of these accessions upon their
physical development were patent, and are
noted by mo-t ancient historians. What
were the effects upon their moral and intel
lectual organization, from these various
combinations, can only be a matter of specu
lation. It is probable they were beneficial,
'i here were other Greeks who were Ionic

other Greeks, whether lkiric or .liolie.
They were the most lively, the most versa

and most enterprising people of whom we
have any record. In all the departments
ol letters and of arts in peotry, philosophy,
oratory, history, sculpture and painting,
they have not been surpassed by any who
have succeeded them if they have ever
been equalled. Lut for them, Wo should

probably in some way connected with those
misty and mysterious rovrrs, the I'clasginns,
who were equally a riddle to tho ancients
and the moderns. Tho Sabines, who early
became blended with the Latins, are shown
by antiquarians to be Celts, and probably
the progenitors of tho O liriens and McCon
nels of Krin as well as of tho Catos and
Cipssrs of Koine. This Ktruseans were pro
bably Lydian with a large Hellenic or 1'e
lasginn infusion. Tarquin's father was re
ported to be a Greek from Corinth.
If there be any truth la the notion that a
coiuiuingleinent of many races, tends to in
crease the physical and elevate the mental
powers of linin, the United States Is in a fair
way to present tho highest specimen of bu
inanity the world has ever necn. Here all

per cent, and England but twelve per cent ;
aud estimating the children aud grandchil
dren of Iri.-h parents iu the same proportion
as the per ventage ot the immigrants, wc
come to tho conclusion that the Celtic ele
ment constitutes a very considerable ingre
dient in the w hole of the American popula
tion. There is another conclusion, too, at
which wc arrive, and that is: that there
need be no alarm about excessive emigra
tion either of tho I ri-h or Germans or of
any other nation. The population of foreign
birth form l.uteleveu per cunt, or one-ninth
of the whole inhabitants. 'J he one-ninth,
therefore, is so absorbed by the other eight-
ninths t hot it is rapidly assimilated and lo-t
in the prevailing American element, so as
ultimately to become as much American as
the Americans themselves. I nstead of the
loreign elemeiit moulding the native, it is
moulded by the native, and soon becomes
" racy of the soil." Thi.s is particularly the
ea-e with regard to the Irish and Germans,
who become good republican", and adapt
themselves to the institutions of the country
more rapidly than any other race. It is I
only in the large cities, and in particular!
localities, that the influence of a particular j
foreign nationality, is felt ; but even iu these :
it is eoiitiiiuall counteracted and neutral- j

The Washington Union, chiming in witli
the New Yoi k l imes, nn advocate for the
acquisition of Cuba, right or wrong, says :
"The more President Fillmore's course
respecting Cuba is dwelt upon, the graver
will be the objections that will ari-o to it.
In view of the past action of m-nrft every
administration since Monroe's time, his con
duct is exceet'ingly reprehensible;."
We cannot for our lives see how the Union
arrives at this conclusion. Certainly not by
assuming that any administration heretofore

possession of neighboring territory in viola
tion of the faith of treaties fur no instance
of the kind, thank Heaven, can bo cited.
And what has Mr. Fillmore done more than
to guard thn fair fame and honorable name
of our republic from this foul reproach?
1 Setter w ould it be if Cuba were' cmbow elled
in the lowest depths of the ocean than that
siu-h a reproach should rest on the untar
nished reputation of our country. Mr. Fill
more has done nothing more than adopt
lneasures for preventing the connitnniatioii of
a piratical scheme for getting possession of
t luli.'i, the success ot ivhieli would justly
have made our government a participant in
the crime, in tin; ev-timntion of tho world and
tho view of prosterify. If this be " reprc-
heiisible," let the Union ''make the most of
' it.' A '''.' Jlrralil.
This is very well put by our contemporary
of Norfolk. Hut if Mr. Fillmore's conduct
has tended to dishonor the country, w by do
not the I )emoeraey of Congress take the
matter in hand ? lf he has submitted to in
sults from Spain, why do they imt resent
them! All power is in their hands and
tl.ey are heaping; dirt upon their owu beads,
in abusing Mr. Fillmore and persisting iu
the same course that he has pursued. 15y
the Constitution, he has no power to declare
war that power is entrusted to Congress.
If cause of war exists, as these people have
again and again assorted, why don't they
proclaim it and go to work at once! What
prevents them ! They have sweeping ma
jorities in both Houses of Congress. IK,
