FRIDAY, AUG. 28, 1835.
The comedy of manners is as ex
tinct as the dodo or long credit. If
the critical and refined public of
l.SH.'i wants wit nhil litunor it- can
regale itself with Viinch. and if it
requires the occasional titillution of
pxguantc impropriety it can obtain
it atjim absurdly cheap rate in the
columns of an evening paper. Tho
works of Congrcvc nmUFnrquhar,
Sheridan nnd Coleman, arc seldom
or never given in our theatres, and
are probably only read by those
fossilised bookworms who obstin
ately affect to see in them con
siderably more brilliancy,, true
knowledge of the world, and literary
merit, than is to lie found in such
modern masterpieces oi slage
authorship and stage-carpentering
as Ou the Planks and The !Fleshand
the Devil. It is the novel which
holds the mirror up to the nature of
to-day. Not the novel of incident
and 'intrigue, in which tho hero and
heroine are always young, band-
some, and accomplished, and the
"bad people" as invariably ugly
and middle-aged, if not old, and in
which episodes Connected with
forged wills, missing lleirs-at-law,
shipwrecks, bigamies, and murders
arc headed up thick as leaves in
Vallambrosa ; but what might not
inaptly be called the novel of man
ners, the novel which is as much an
invention of our American cousins
as the last mangle or potato peeler,
and whose dramatis personal, male
and female, never do anything but
posture and talk about silly compli
cations and entanglements of their
own creation, and sometimes what
would Miss Laura Matilda have said
to this? do not even get married
at the end of the third volume.
This kind of novel deals princi
pally with the manners and cus
toms of those who move in the
world of fashion, resembling the
comedy which preceded it in that
respect, and in that respect only.
Tho pretty manners of the members
of our aristocracy seem to afford
food for perpetual wonder and ad
miration to the authors and author
esses of books of this sort, and Mr.
George Lawrence, Madame do la
Ramcc, Miss KhodaBroughton, Miss
Helen Mathers, and their host of
imitators, write as if they had been
the first to discover that the "little
ways" of what arc termed tho
upper classes arc as a rule calm,
courteous, and pleasant, and arc
never tired of comparing them di
rectly or indirectly with the conrsc
speech and rough and ready habits
of the proletariat. Page after page
and chapter after chapter arc de
voted to the subject, nnd the fash
ionable puppets arc presented again
and again to the reverent contem
plation of the reader. The ladies
lounge languorously on fauleuils
(the word painter commonly drops
into French in these descriptions),
or crouch on the leopard skin before
the fire of the boudoir, trifling with
their diamond rings. Their amorous
eyelids droop over eyes in which the
love-rapture sparkles, and their
white, lithe fingers toy. The men,
the, short cropped and broad shoul
dered meu, the men with long ca
valry moustaches and heavy sensual
jaws, who can crumple up pewter
pots in their hands like dry leaves,
who throw big, brawny welshers
about like tennis balls, and ride
horses in the Grand National who
start at the abnormal odds of 19 to
Gj on them the men are everlast
ingly placid and self-contained, and
seldom open their mouths except to
insert in them choice Partagas, or
imbibe the contents of itlioso beakers
of Moselle or "cup" so loved IJy the
souls of the creme de la crcme of
our jeuncsse doree. To be sure, oc
casionally the careful student may
remark that the conduct of these
great creatures is not exactly con
sistent, and a scoffer might even go
as fnras to saytljat they get on very
well up' to the time when their im
perturbable sangfroid and patrician
hauteur would stand them in the
best stead, and then break down.
Speaking from a long and strong ex
perience of the woiks of their faith
ful chroniclers, it seems to us that
they behave admirably until they
aro what is vulgarly called "put
out." Tho chatelaine in her draw
ing-rooni, the M. F. II. doing the
honors of the hunting-field, and the
young guardmnn operating on his
chevelure with gold-backed hair
brushes, are as calm as members of
the beau momle should be. But it
is wonderful to observe how they
"go back upon themselves" when
the lady is jealous or the gentlemen
have to pay a gambling debt or take
up a bill. Lovely eyes flash, pearly
teeth ate clenched, and dainty hot'
tines stamped ; frowns and sneers
aro plentiful ; cnged-lion-wnlks up
and down the room arc indulged in,
and bitter blasphemies escape from
pallid lips, from which, moreover,
the churned foam takes the liberty
of flying. Their stoicism, like the
love of a fribbjc or the courage of a
coxcomb, seems to cvaporato just at
the time when it is most required,
aud brings to one's mind' tho idea of
a horse who is n wonder in his galops
at home, but a perfect jado upon a
It will bo guessed that wo do not
entirely and implicitly agree with
all that we arc in the habit of read
ing in the pages of Ouida and Co.
Still, we have no wish to deny that
our aristocrats, as a rule, have
pretty manners, very pretty manners
indued. What really surprises us is
that these accomplished writers, seem
to imagine that the rich and well
born of other countries are to a
groat extent destitute of these
graces, and that the British "heavy
swell" is a specimen of the genua
honio to all intents nnd purposes
unique. It would be very easy to
point out the magnitude of this mis
take. The intelligent and impartial
amongst those who have seen the
ways of many men and their cities
will tell you that the manners of the
Gentiles', using the word in its clas
sical acceptation, are now very
similar all the world over, and that
the same "hig-lif" jargon is to be
heard, and the same "iorm" seen,
in the Prado as in the Bois de
Boulogne, at Jerome Tark as at
Goodwood. Beside, the manners
of the rich and noble, of the mag
nates of the earth and minions of
fortune, have always beon notice
able for fineness, suavity, and re
pose. Tho records of itho past arc
full of examples. Alexander the
Great, when not in liquor, must have
been a man of wonderful dignity
and " deportment," and Pericles
and Alcibiadcs are, instances which
will be readily recalled. Again,
what plunger of to-day, we should
like to know, on the eve of :i bad
settling, would show tho samo cool
ness and airy contempt of fate
which Julius Ciesar exhibited when
he left Rome to better himself in
Gaul, with debts amounting to mil
lions of our moncyon his shoulders?
And Augustus Ciesar was just like
his uncle, only, if possible, "more
so." And, not to multiply illustra
tions, what a number of high-born
heroes and heroines, faithful and
devoted in life, calm and self-sus
tained in death, did the lurid anil
blood-dripping torch of the French
Revolution show forth to an ndmir-1
ing and revering world !
The fact of the matter is that
pretty manners come naturally to
those who from their birth have all
the crooked paths of life made
straight for them, and all the rough
places smooth. "It isn't them as
has money," says Lord Tennyson's
Northern Farmer, "as breaks into
houses and. steals." His lordship
is quite right: why should they?
Similarly, the members of our
aristocratic, that is, of our here
ditarily wealthy class, have no oc
casion to adopt the sharp, abrupt
manner and style of speaking which
people who have to work for their
daily bread, men of business, and
the poor generally, find that the
tenor of their lives and the force of
their surroundings compel them to
assume. Can, our eyes have tljc
languorous love-light in them when
we are, being told tiat the water will
be cut off next week? or can we
stroke our tawny beards, and smile
lazily whilst tho Jamlqrd, the bill
i of-sale-man, and the representative
of the Ilirc-Purehase Furnishing
Company ar,e disputing as to which
of the trio has the best right to re
move and sell our "sticks"? Scarce
ly. A man, may cpmmencc life witli
a temper for which the epithet
angelic is mild and colorless praise,
but if he is -fated to bear lanteis
and endure poverty and its con
comitant annoyances and inconven
iences throughout his career, he will
be something moro than human iij
ho does not ultimately develop a
general "nastiness" comparable to
that of tho spirit in the Arabian
Nights, who was kept in bond in a
bottle at 'the bottom of a.hike by the
all-powerful seal of Solomon, till he
mado up his miiid to kill the, un
fortunate who should find and re
lease hini, instead of offering him,
an adequate reward, as he had at
first proposed to, ,do.
Briefly, tho tyrant circumstance,
to use, an cxpressiye phrase of Ralph
Waldo Emerson's, has in the vast
majority of cases the first and last
word to say on, this question; aud if
the authors of to-day really cannot
writo novels of plot and incident, it
