Anadote of Lord Byron. Mr.
UillinVen. in his forthcoming work on
Greece, gives an exceedingly mmute
- .-t-..f the noble poet. He id-
forms us that he always wore gloves,
drank tea msd gin.profuicly ;
and ofit aelf denial, where his appe
lite was inclined to risk his figure,
gives the following exsmple: " On
dinner being served up, although scv.
ersl dishes of mest were upon the ta
b!et Lord Byron did not pirtake of
aoy 1 his custom being to eat mest on.
ly once a month. Roup, a few veget.
sblst, a considerable portion of Kn
gliah cheese, with some fried crusts
of bread and fruit, constituted his
daily fre. He ate with treat rapid-
itv,.nd drank freely. Tnere happen
ed w be-n the table.t roasted cspofln
the good looks of which sv powerfully
tempted him, that after w'utfa'ly eye
ing it, he was an the point of taking
a leg 1 but suddenly recollecting the
rule he had imposed 00 himself, he
left it ia the dish, desiring his servant
to let the capon be kept till the next
day, when his month would be out."
The anecdotes we subjoin are the
newest we ran find j the last days of
Bvron's life having been repeatedly
before the public. 14 During the ear.
her part of hi youth, hi then very
limited revenues were soon exhausted
bv his extravagant expence in Lon
don, and especially by his frequent
ing the gaming houses. He had bor
rowed a much from the usurer, that
none were to be found humane enough
to advance him any far h-r aum, at
whatever interest he offered. One
morning after a. sleepless night, spcit
at one of thote establishment! in
which he had lost all of his money,
he heard a coach stop before his lodg
ings, and -aoon after saw a ladv of
rank, who had given him proofs ol
the mo.t ardent attachment, enter his
room, beheld a smalt 'casket' Inlier
hand, and, on depositing it on the ta
blr, told. him thii,.hesrir.gijt .the.pe.
cuniary misfortunes hr had met with,
ai.d friring he might fi:id himself i.
embjrratsed circumstances, .he hsd
brought him all her jewels and money,
and requested he would accept them
aa proofs of her affection. Go, and

IMPOriTANCK OF RELIGION'.
If you brake down the public ordin

estimation, the influence of political
power and authority. Let toe exper
iment be made once and we are sure
it wHl never be repeated. Infidelity

filled with a wild croup of dieorderly

rostageA the question appears to
be agitated in Congress, and in differ
cnt parts of the Union, relative to the
disposal of the funds, when the Na
tional Debt is discharged, why would
it not be good policy to relieve the
people of a heavy tax, by leaaening
the postage on letters and newspapers.
Letter postage, although. rated raiher
high, can atill be endured the major
part of letters being, it is believed,
received by men of business, presum
ed able to encounter the expense. It
is the oewapaper pottage of which we
moat complain, and which we consid
er ought to be reduced at least oni

country than in cities, and the whole
burden eventually falls on the printers.

made without materially affecting our
