I was presented to Mahomet Aii Bashaw, who received me very civilly. The Bashaw .Was just returned from Arabia, where he had conquered some" 61" the AhaBy'TrBesTaliid : delivered the holy cities of Mecca and letllna from the infidels. The Bashaw Js in continual motion, .being sometime at his citadel, and sometimes at hU seraglio in the Esbakie ; but Soubra is his principal residence. His chief amusement is in thr evening a little before sunset, when he quits h,is, seraglio, and seats himself on the bank of the Nile, to fire , at an earthern pot, with his guards. If any of . them hit it, be makes him a present, occasionally of forty or fiftv rubles He is himself art excellent marks man, for I saw him fire at and hit a pot only fifteen inches high, set on the ground on the :;Gpp at Soubra Is considerably wider than the Th ames at Westminster bridge. .As soon as " it is dark, he retires into the garden, and re poses, either in an alcove, or by the margin of a fountain, on an European chair, with all his attendants round him. Here his numer ous buffoons keep him in continual high spir its and good humour. By moonlight the scene was beautifuL i , was admitted into the garden whenever I fished, by wMcfi. means I had an opportunity of observinc tfe4oraes. : b5 Viceroy fcf Egypt, and conqueror of the 'sawtlirqu supposed the ladies were at cuch limcaamui in themselves in some way or other. Dan cing women are often brought to divert them, and sometimes the famous Catalaniof kgypt was introduced.- One of the boToons ol the Bashaw took it into his head one day, for a frolic, to shave his beard, which is no trifle among the Turks 1 for omcof them, I really believe, would sooner have.their.head cut off than their beard l he borrowed some Franks clothes of Jhe.Bashaw's apothecary, who was from Europe, and, after dressing himself in our costume, presented himself to the Bashaw as an European, wno couiu not spcait a swgic word either of Turkish or Arabic, which is often the case. Being in thcdarLulic Bashaw took him for what he represented himself to be,' and sent immediately for an interpreter. who put some questions to him in Italian, in wmcn ne Diet not answer ; ne was inen ques tioned in French, but no reply ; and next in the German arid SpanlslHanguagcsibut still he was silent : at last, when he saw that thev were all dcceivcd,thc Bashaw not excepted, he burst out in a plain Turkish, the only lan guage he was acquainted with, and his well known voice told them who he was ; for such was the change of his person, particularly the cutting off his beard, that otherwise they could scarcely have recocnised him. The Bashaw was aciigntea wunmcjeuow j ano. io seep up the frolic, gave him an order on the treasury for an enormous sum of money, and sent him to the Kaciabay, to present himself as a Frank, to receive it.-The Kaciabay started at the immensity of the sum, as it was nearly all the treasury could furnish ; but upon questioning this-new European, it was soon perceived who he was. In this attire be went home to his women, who actually thrust him out of the door; and such was the disgrace of cut ting off his beard, that even his fellow buf foons would not eat with him till it was grown again. The Bashaw seems to be well aware of the benefits that may be derived from his encour aging the arts of Europe in his country, and had already reaped some of the fruits of it. The fabrication of gunpowder, the refining of sugar, the making of fine indigo, and the silk manufacture, are introduced, much, to his advantage : he is constantly inquiring'after something new, and is delighted with any thing strange to his imagination. Hating heard of electricity, he sent to England tor two electric machines, one with a plate, the otner wnn a cylinder. 1 ne tormer was Brok en by the way ; the latter was dismounted. The physician of the Bashaw, an Armenian, did not know, though it-was so easy a matter, how to set it up. Happening to be at the gar den one evening, when they were attempting it, and could not succeed, I was rjquested to put the several pieces together ; and, having done so I made one of the soldiers mount on the insulated stool, charged the machine, and gave the Turk a good shock ; who, expecting no such thing, uttered a loud cry, and jump ed ofl", as much terrified as if he had seen the devil. The Bashaw laughed at the man's jumping off. supposing his fright to be a trick, and not the effect of tin machine ; and when told, that it was actually occasioned by the machine, he affirmed positively that it could not be, for the soldier was at such a distance, that it was impossible the small chain he held in his hand could have such power. I then desired the interpreter to inform his High ness, that if he would mount the stool him self, he would be convinced of the fact. He hesitated for a while whether to believe ne or not ;. however he-mounted the stool. I charged well, put thexhain into his hand, . and gave him a pretty smart shock. He jumped off, like the sotdier, on feeling the effect of th e electricity bu t J mmed iately threw him h self on the sofa in a fit of laughter, notjbeing able to conceive how the machine coujd have such power on the human body.

Still he held the opinion of the an gry Capulct, even in the midst of the enter tainment, .Now by the stock ami honor of my kin To trikc him dcul I hold it not a sin.' Accordingly when they stood up to dance, and he found himself compelled to touch the hands and approach the persons of his detest ed enemies, the deadly feud broke forth. He unsheathed his dagger as he went down the dance ; struck on the right and left -laid some dead and many wounded on the floor threw up the window, leaped into the castle-court, and escaped in the general confusion. Such were the unsettled principles of the time, that the perfitlity of the action was lost in its bold ness ; it was applauded by his kinsmen, who united themselves to defend what he had done : and the fact is commemorated in the well known tune of triumph called Lesley a montr the Leitht" QUALIFICATIONS OF AN ORATOR. If we say, that an oratorT like a poet, to excel should be born such, it will be no strain ed assertion ; and if we add he must be more indebted to nature than a son of , the muses, it will be easily admitted. Cultivated imag ination, regulated by judgment, constitutes one, who, totally void of external requisites, may shine from his closet, though ever so de formed in figure, rude in features, weak in voice, or blemished in appearance. - 44 The other, though he may by peculiar ex cellence of delivery, and the help of a feeling subject well treated on, be able to impress an audience with little more than a good voice, yet experience powerfully convinces us, that a graceful person, respectable marked fea tures, expressive eyes, and ornamented gest ure, are of the utmost utility ; it is no argu ment to say, that a man, as m the case of Str JoiiN Fielding, though the.visual gates of sympathy be shut, may show strong marks of oratorical merit ; for the question naturally follows, would he not be muchrraore" oower- expression, u tne maexes oi tnougnt per. ful in enioyed their natural vigor, especially. where particular feelings are to be excited ? 11 It is too common for ignorance and avar ice to misapply the talents of outh, especially in this point of view.
