If rich people in England should seo
fit to bring down their domestic expendi
ture to thnt usual among fnmilics of
similar menus here, thoy would very soon
bo ablo not moroly to recoup themselves
for tho losses of sovernl bad harvests,
but to eavo vast Bums of monoy. In
our largo Eastern cities family men
with anything under 823,000 a year
tpond moro freely than Englishmen
with tho sanio incomo; but ns regards
thoBO with incomes ovor that amount it
is qulto auotlior matter. Whon Macau- I
lay, boforo proceeding to India, con
sulted Sidney Smith's experienced
brother, the famous "Uobus," as to ex
pontes at Calcutta, ho was told that ho
could not bo comfortable under 3,000 a
year, and ho could not possibly got
through 5,000. This is in n measure
true of tho Uuitod SUitcs. It might 1)0
safely assorted that in tho whole of this
country ihore aie not 11 vo persons, if us
many, who Bpoud on their establishments
8100,000. A careful estimate, uiodu a
year or" two ago by porsous eminently
qualified to make it, brought such ox
liendituro up to $95,000. It included a
town house, a yacht, a villa at Newport,
and a couutry scat.
What run away with Incomes of from
850,000 to 8250,000 in England is the
keeping up of country-seats, hounds,
hospitality, and game presort es. At
Drumlaurig Castle, for iustnuco, one of
its owuor's teu residences, there aio
eighty miles of grass drivo kept in order;
nt O ridge, moro than forty. Add to
tlteso acres of gardun and glasa and th ;
expenses of park-keepers nnd gamo
koc'iK'rs, and it h easy to sco wliero tho
monoy goes. If there is a huntiug-es-tablishmeut
on a liliernl soalo at least
820,000 a year must Ik) added.
Again, while the hospitality of au
avtrago well-to-do American favorably
compares with that of an EuglUlunan of
iJuiUar means, that of tlio broad-acred
Englishman U immensely Miperior to
that of the American millionaire. The
latter gives some dinner parties, and,
I el-hap, an annual lull, aud keeps a
iloum aervaiiCs; the Englishman, on tlio
other band, besido constantly ontortoin

him throughout his administration,
though sho was too much of an invalid
to assumo the dutlos of lady of tho White
Houso, which hor daughters, Mrs. Fat

charged. Mrs. Johnson did, however,
appear at ono of the afternoon recep

hereof talked with her, It was daring the
last winter of hor husband's term. Bho
was a sweet-facod, gentle-looking old
lady, toll and quite slender, as tho
writer romembera her. Bho sat on the
divan in the Bine parlor during the
reception, and talked pleasantly with all
who approached her. Her husband and
childrou revered her, and always showed
her marked respoct as well aa affection.
Whon in her prime her intellect was of
a high order.
" The President's who have been wid

Tho travolor in America has cortalu

to anybody. Ho can do no such thing
In a foreign railway carriage, if it hap

Iu Europo tho traveler must tako far
moro troublo about his luggage. But
hero tho superior comforts and conven
iences of American travel end. In nil
othor respects it is far plcasantcr to
travol in Europo than in this country.
Even in tho matter of luggage, ono may
doubt whother wo aro bottor off than
Europeans. No doubt tho comparative
ly cumbrous European system of regis
tering luggago is less handy than our
checking system; tho woighing of Ihg-
gago is a bom In Europo a man can
travol with n hnml-vallso, hat-box,
bundle of wraps, gun-case, and bundle
of umbrellas, walking-sticks and fishing
rods, without any troublo whatover.
Ho need handle none of theso articles
himself; all that ho has to put his
own hands to is his tickot ; tho omni
present hotel and railway porter cares for
tlio rest. But wliero European travol
outranks travol in this country, utterly
and totally, is in tho superior facilities
for eating nnd drinking. Tho railway

thing of horror ; a noisomo don where
bad food is badly prepared nnd badly
served ; wliero pcoplo cat from a sense
of duty, knowing thoy may bo hungry
it thoy do not. Thoy manage better
.broad ; tho nverago quality of tho food,
the facilities for gotting it, and its appo
sing aspect, nt French and Gorman
railway stations, are far superior to any
thing of tho sort in this country. In
many parts of Germany, so soon as the
train stops at a wny station of any im
portance, alert waiters bring to tho very
car windows huge tray bearing big
glass mugs of delicious beer, or ezcellont
sandwiches ; whilo in any Fronoh rail
way station soup, cold chicken, ham,
and good wine and coffeo, can bo hod at
a miuuto s notice. English refreshment
rooms for travelers are equally good
or oven better. Stepping from your
first-class carriage in England yon can
get palatnblo things to cat and drink
(especially tho latter), and tho plates,
glasses, knives, forks, spoons and linon
are beautifully clean and bright. A
more dozzlingly cheery spectacle than
an Mnglish railway buffet is hard to

A dinner for llilrly-two pcoplo was re
cently protldcd nt n cost of $2.22. Th'
hill of fnro included pen noup, Pafkpi
Houso rolls, Irish stow, potnloes, port
mid benlis, voal croquettes, cold slntv
mnenrnni, rlco pudding, npplq dump
lings mid coffee. This is likely to mnkt
tho master of tho houso wonder why hi
cannot hao a. greater vnriety on his tn
bio nt 11 less cost. It is but just to tin
housekeeper to say Hint in order tomaki
this meal so abundant and cheap require
it grout deal of time. A few years ngt
wo sat down to n delicious dinner pro
pnred nt nn iucrcdiblo cost, so far ns tin
materials wero concerned, by Miss Cor

wero consumed by MIhs Corson, thocij

In response to inquirlos elicited by
rocont references to ante-bellum scrim
mages on tho floor of Congress, wo print
a short account, as published In tho pa
pers at tho time, of ono which occurred
in February, 1857, in tho discussion in
the Houso on tho attempt to admit Kan
sas as n slave state, under tho Lecomp
ton constitution, between Gulusha A.
Grow, of Pennsylvania, aud Lawreuco
M. Koitt, of South Carolina.
Tho conversation which led to thb
mcloe and awakened tho sleeping mem
bers was in this wiso: Grow was on tho
sido of tho IIouso occupied by Southern
members, nnd objected to Quitman mak
ing any romarkB. Kent said: "JI you
aro going to object, return to your own
sido of tho IIouso." Grow replied:
"This is a frco hall; every man has 11
right to bo whero ho pleases." Keitt
then camo nearer to Grow, and said: "I
want to know what you mean by such
on answer as that?" Grow replied, re
peating what ho had said beforo. Keitt
seized Grow by tho throat, saying; "1
will let you know that you nro a
up his hand, exclaiming: "I shall occu
py such place in tho IIouso as I please,
and no negro-driver shall crack his whip
over mo." Keitt again grasped Grow
by the throat uad again his hand was
knocked off and Grow knocked litui
squarely down. Tho respective fricmli
of the party rushed to tho fray. Blow
foil thick and fast, Washburne, of Uli
uois, and Potter, of Wisconsin, towered
4aiong tlio combatants. At this critical
juncturo, Covodo, of Foiinsyliauin,
seixod a spittoon. Ho balanced it for a
moment in tha air. Tho objccltvo point
was tho head of Barksdale, of Mississip
pi, who was approaching hint of tho spit
toon in a menacing attitude. ButUarliv
data's wig fell off mid Covodo lowered
Ills suspended mbtdlc. Meanwhile, the
Bergeani-at-nnus was lunu'ng hero and
there Just "like tho peewit," exhibiting
his mace without cff.ct. It was near

Exceptionally long boards have alnayt
attracted a good ileal of attention, aud
hittory records many instances of this
kind, llaubcr von Talberg, a Oermuu
Knight, and Councillor of Maximilian
IX (d, 1670), rejoiced, in a beard which
reached to his feet, and from there again
to his waist John Mayo, a celebrated
painter of the sixteenth century, who
accompanied Charles V. in hi campaign,
had beard' so long that, although ho
aa a tall buu, it would hang upon the
groaad when he stood upright 2 he wore
it, therefore, fastened to hi girdle.
