imie volumes oi less tftan two hundred paaes
each. All the works of this author are wild,
irregular, original and frequently interesting
and powerful. The present is marked bv all
these characteristics. It may be read with in
terest, and will rather please the young and
poetical, than those of sober and "cool know
ledge " We have only space this morning lor
the brief extracts which we find ready to our
hand in the New York American the first, a
successful politician's counsels to his son; the
second, a good description of a Spanish bull
fight.
"But to enter society with pleasure, Conta-
nni, you must be qualified for it. . I think it
quite lime for you to make yourself master of
some,aceomplishments. Decidedly you should
make yourself a good dancer. Without dan
cing, you can never attain a perfectly graceful
carriage, which is of the highest importance
in life, and should be every man's ambition.
You are yet too young fully to comprehend
how much in life depends upon manner. When- j
ever you sec a man who is successful in socie
ty, try to discover what makes him pleasing,
and, if possible, adopt his system. You should
learn to lence. For lano-uao-ps. at nrpspuL
o o 1 t '
French will be sufficient. You speak it fairlv;
try to speak it elegantly. Read French authors.
Read liocheloucault. The French writers are
the finest in the world for they clear our heads
of all ridiculous ideas, Study precision.
"Do not talk too much at present, do not tru
to talk. But whenever you speak, speak with
self possession. Speak in a subdued tbne, and
always look at the person whom you arc a !-
dressing, nelore one can engage in general
conversation with any effect, ihere is a certain
acquaintance with trilling, but amusing subjects,
which must be first attained. You will soon
pick up sufficient by listening and observing.
Never argue. In society, nothing must be dis
cussed; give only results. If any person differ
wiih you bow and turn the conversation. In
society, never think always be on the watch,
or you will miss many opportunities, and say
many disagreeable things.
- "Talk to women, talk to women as much as
you can. This is the best school. This is the
way to gain Uuency because you nee ! not care
what you say and had better not be sensible.
They too will rally you on many points; and,
as they are women you will not be offended.
Nothing is of so much importance, and of so
much use, to a yonng man entering life, as to
be well criticised by women. It is impossible
to get rid of those thousand bad habits which
we pick up in boyhood without this supervision.
Unfortunately, you have no sisters. But never
be offended if a woman rally you. Encourage
her. Otherwise you will never be free from
your awkwardness, or any little oddities, and
certainly never learn to dress.
"You ride pretty well, but you had better
go through the manege. Every gentleman
should be a perfect cavalier. Y"ou shall have
your own groom and horses, and I wish you to"
ride regularly every day.
"As you are to be at home for so short a
time, and for other reasons, I think it better
that you should not have a tutor in the house.
Parcel out your morning, then, for your sepa
rate masters. Rise early and regularly, and
read for three hours. Read the memoirs of the
Cardinal de Retz the Life of Richelieu eve
ry thing about Napoleon read works of that
kind. Strelamb will prepare you a list. Read
no history; nothing but biography, for that is
life without theory. Then fence. Talk an
hour with your French master, but do not throw
the burden of the conversation upon him. Give,
him in account of something. Describe to
him the events of yesterday, or give to him a
detailed account of the constitution. You will
have then sufficiently rested yourself for your
dancing. And after that ride and amuse your
self as much as you can. Amusement to an ob
serving mind is study.'.'
"Another trumpet ! a second, and a third blast.
The governor throws the signal. The den
opens and the bull bounds in. That first spring
is very fine. The animal stands for a moment
j still, staring, stupified. Gradually his hoof
j moves ; he paws the ground; he dashes about
the sand. The Knights face him with their ex-
. . . . . ml 1
tended lances at due distance. I he taunoors
are all still. One flies across him, and waves
his scarf. The enraged bull makes at the near
est horseman. He is frustrated in his attack.
Again he plants himself, lashes his tail, and
rolls about his eye. He makesanother charge,
and this time the glance ofthe spear does not
drive him back. He gores the horse, rips up
its body, the steed staggers and falls. The bull
rushes at the rider, and his armour will not now
preserve him, but, just as his awful horn is a
boutto revenge his future fate, a skilful tauri
dor skims before him, and flaps his nostril with
his scarf. He tlies after his new assailant, and
immediately finds another. Now you are de

the stab. The animal is then as bewildered as
infuriate. The amphitheatre echoes to his roar
ing, and witnesses the greatest efforts of his
rage. He flies at all, staggering and streaming
with blood ; at length, breathless and exhausted,
he stands at bay, his black swollen tongue
hanging out, and his mouth covered with foam.

loconiotive existence narrows, in a wonderful
degree, the circle of. national prejudice. For
enlightened and impartial opinions on the man
ners and superstitions of foreign countries,
commend me to the German. The approach
ofthe cureit as they emphatically style the
bathing season produces much the same effect
as the 12th of August with us: every body
flocks to the country. At this period, all that
is dis inguished for rank and fashion in the
land may be found assembled at some of their
numerous watering places ; when the traveller
at a glance, may contemplate all the lights and
shadows of German life: the sovereign prince
and his Morganic consort ; the mediatised
prince and his mistress ; the foreign diploma
tist, am! the native statesman, tired of confer
ences and protocols; the rich Jew banker,
from Frankfort orLeipzic; crowds of foreign
ers Irom every clime; hosts of counts and ba
rons, soldiers and students, merchants and
mechanics, blacklegs and dames de moyennc
virtu all congregated in some beautiful ro
mantic spot, ardent in the pursuit of health, or
its anthithesis dissipation. The class of ar- I
tistes, who form the base of this Corinthian
pillar, outnumbered' the votaries of pleasure,
in the same ratio as the camp followers of an
Indian army exceeded the combatants. Actors
from Berlin and ViejKa ; prima-domas from
Venice "and Milan; opera-dancers, coturicres
gaming house-keepers, and coohs from Paris ;
watchmakers from Geneva; pipemakers from
Frankfurt; Tyrolean glove-makers; fiddlers
and jugglers; in short the professor of every
art that can administer to luxury and dissipa
tion are found assembled, actively employed
in rcaping,from the exercise of their vocations,
a rich and plentiful harvest. This singular
melange, and activity and bustle they occasion,
would alone present a wide field for observa
tion and amusement; but add to this, romantic
scenery, fetes-champetres, balls, concerts, en
chanting society, beautiful women, piquant ad
ventures .and in such a place may the ennujre

Notes by the way-side. "And whence has
New Hampshire' its derivation?" we asked of
the anliqnary.
He hesitated a moment;
"I will tell you, "said he.
When the colony ofthe pilgrims had pushed
the spoliation of culture farther into the interi
or, and lopped off more of the natural luxuriant
redundances of the new world; when colonies
were sent out to pitch their log houses in the
wilderness of woods, one among their number
became very short of provisions, and it was
thought the whole would die of starvation.
They called loudly on the mother colony for
assistance. This was not refused, but in con
sequence of an unusual drought, the scarcity
had been general. The venturous spirit, which
is a characteristic of the genuine Yankee, in
duced many to turn Speculators. In what
ever direction - you cast your eye, the broad
and staring capitals, NEW HAMS HERE,
met its vision. And from many a soft and
cherry cheeked lassie, did the then enchanting
sound proceed of "new hams here,'' "new
hams here." Every person who was not in
absolute necessity, and could shoulder a ham,
hung out his sign and turned pork merchant.!

almost the whole time ofthe crew in attending to them,
which is the cause of the prolonged passage of the

THE MALAYS AND THE POTOMAC'
A paragraph in the Singapore Chronicle
contains an account of the severe and just pun
nishment of an atrocious act of piracy by tlje
Malays: London Times.
From he Singampore Chronicle of Apdil 2(5.'
" Our readers may remember our having no
ticed last year (No. 18, last series) almost atro
cious act of piracy and murder, committed oil
the west coast of Sumatra, by the inhabitants
of Qual la Batu, on an American vessel, wheu
the officer in charge of the vessel and most
of the crew were crissed by the natives, and
the vessel plundered of specie to some amount.
Late accounts from Batavia inform us that an.
American frigate of 60 guns (the Potomac or
Potonia, wc are uncertain which) now at that
port, has lately returned from QualJa Batu;
having taken signal vengeanc on the place
for the savage act, the opening heavy fire of
grape on the village and by people, who wejp
collected on the bench for the purpose of sel
ling their paper, by which upwards ofloO
Malays are said to have been killed, and the
whole village destroyed. This, we think, is ?i
punishment which the Malays of that coast
have well merited by their numerous acts of
treachery, murder and rapine, which they have
committed even recently, on peaceable vessels
that have gone thither for purposes of corn
merce. It is to be hoped the Malay states on
the west coast, some of which are little re
moved from barbarism, will learn a wholesome
lesson from Qualla Batu."
