si Xcto aS'orfe bp list.
A s eri its of picture* reprcsentiDg t!ie streets of London in
the nisiht, even at the comparatively recent <iat? of this talc,
would present to the eye. something go very different in j
character from the reality which is witnessed in es? times,
dint it would !>o difficult for tho beholder to rccw'nwe his
most familiar walks, in the altered aspect of little moro than
1 half n century airo.
They were, one und all, from the broadest and be?: to the
narrowest and least frequented, very ilark. The oil atjd cotton
lamps, though regularly trimmed twice or thrice in the long
winter nights, burned feebly at the best: ami at B late hour,
whoa they were unassisted by the lamps and candies in the
?hops, cast but a narrow track of doubtful light upon the
footway, leaving the projecting dsors and house-fronts in the
deepest gloom. Many of the courts and lanes were left in
total darkness: those of the meaner sort, where one elim- i
mcring light twinkl'd for a score of houses, being favored in :
no slight degree. Even in these places the inhabitants had
often goad reason for extinguishing their lump as soon ns it
was lighted; and the watch being utterly inefficient and
powerless to prevent them, they did so at their pleasure.
Thus, in the lightest thoroughfares, there was at every turn j
?nin? obseur; and dangerous spot whither a thief might fly
for shelter, and few would care to follow ; nnd the city being j
belted round by fields, green lanes, wa?te grounds, and lonely
roads, dividing it at that time from the suburbs that have
joined it since, escape, even vvhero the, pursuit was Lot, was
It is no wonder thnt with these favoring circumstances in
full and constant operation, street robberies, often accompa?
nied by cruel wounds, and not unfrequently by loss of life, i
should have been of nightly occurrence in the very heart of
I.oudiMi, ur that quiet folks should have had greru dread of
traversing its streets after thu shops were closed. It was '
not unusual for those who wended home ahme at midnight, I
to keep the middle of the road, the belter to guard against !
surprise from lurking footpads ; few would venture to repair
at a late hour to Kentish Town or Hrtinpilcnd, or cvwh to
Kensington "r Chelsea, unarmed and unattended; while ho
who had been loudest and most valiant at the supper-table
or the tavern, and had but a mile or two to go. was glad to J
fee a link-buy to escort him home.
There were many other characteristics?not quite so dis?
agreeable?about the thoroughfares of London then, with ,
which they had been long familiar. Snme of the shops,
especially those to the eastward of Temple ltar, still adhered
tu the old practice of banging out it <ign ; and the erertkinr
and twinging of thcM boards in their iron frames on windy,
nights, firmed u strange und mournful concert tor the ears ol
those who lay awake in !???! or hurried through the street*. I
Long stands of hackney-chairs and groups of chairmen, com-'
pared with whom the coachmen of our day are gentle, and !
polite, obstructed the way and filled the air with clamor;}
night-cellars, indicated by n little stream of light crossing
the pavement and stretching ont half way into the road, ami j
by the stilled roar of voices from below, yawned for the re- j
ception and entertainment of the most abandoned of both i
sexes ; under every shed and hulk small groups ef link-boys i

I Then there was the watch with stud' and innthorn crying
the hour, and the kind of weatiier : and those who woke up
; at his voice and turned them round in bed, wore glad to hear
it mined, or snowed, or blew, or fr?re, for very comfort's
sake. The solitary passenger was startled by the chairmen's
crv of " Hv your leave there!" a> two came trotting past
him with their empty vehicle?carried backwards to show
! its being disengaged?and hurried to the nearest stand.
I Many a privat- chair too, inclosing; some fine lady, mon

footnicn bearing flambeaux?tor which extinguishers are yet
, suspended before the doors of a few hou-es of the better

darker and more dismal when it hud passed. It was not
, unusual for these running sentry, who carried it with a very
high band, to quarrel in the servants' hail while waiting far I
, their masters and mistresses: and, fulling to blows either '
j there or in the street without, to strew the place ot skirmish
with hair-powder, fragments of bug-wigs, und scattered nose-j
, gavs. laming, the vice which ran so high among all classes
, (die fashion being of course set by the upper), was generally
the cause of these disputes ; for cards and dice were us openly
j used, uud worked as much mischief, and yielded as much ex
'. citcment below stairs, as above. While incidents like these.

through the town, und a Public Progress of some tine gentle

' and damning the ordinary with un>|ieakabie jallantry and
grac. furnished to the rntpulace. at once a pleasant excite
' nient and a wholesome and profound example.
Among all the dangerous characters, who, in such a state
of society, prowled a:..l skulked in the metropolis at night,
j there was one man. from whom many as uncouth and fierce
us he, shrunk with an involuntary dread. Who he was. or
i w hence h>- came, was ;. question often ask.-d. but which none
j cauld answer. His r.nmc was unknown, h" had never hw-n
. seen until within e'gh: days or ther.sab.jii--. ir.d was equally
a stranger to th- old rurrians, upon whose haunt- he ventured
', fearlessly, as to the young. He could be no spv, for he never
j removed his slouched hat to look about him, enreted into con?
versation with no man. hooded nothing that passed, listened
to no discourse, regarded nobody that came or went. But
so ?urelv as the dead of night set in, so surelv this man was
I in. the mid-t of the loose concourse in the night-cellar where
outcasts of every grade resorted j nail there he sat til! morning.
IL was n t only n spectre al their licentious feasts: a some?
thing; in the midst of their revelry and riot that chilled and
; baunteel ihetn; but out of doors he was the same. Directly
j it was dark, he was abroad?never in company with any one,
i but always alone; never lingering or loitering, but always
j wnl-iiig swiftiy; and looking (so they said who Lad seen
i him) over his -houider front time to time, aid as he did io
; quickening bis pace. In the fields, the lanes, the roads, is
ail quarters of the town?enst. west, north, and south?that
; man wa- seen cHci:nr; "n. like a shadow. He was always
I hurrying away. Those wao encountered hin-., saw h;:r. (teal
past, caug bl sight of the backward gisr.ce, and so Jos: hire
in the ^ar'r.r:"--.
This constaxt rostlsssnes- ami rl'ttin; to and fro. save rise
to strange stories. He was seen in such distant and remote
plares. at time. *o nearly taUyiag with i ica o:iier, that tome
doubted whether there were net ;w>i of them. ?r men?some,
whether he had not unearthly rn.?.n< ?:" traveling from spot to
j spot. The footpad hiding ia a ditch h id marked him passing
I like a ghost along its brink : the vagrant had met him us tiie
I dark high-road: the beggar had seen him pause upsu the
I bridge to look dawn at the water, and then sweep er? again :
Lftey who dealt in bodies with the surgeons ceuld swear ho
slept in ch lrehyrtrds. and that tney had beheld him glide
away among tiie tombs, on their approach. And a. :huv
told these stories to each other. one who had looked about
him would pui! his neighbor by tho sleeve, and thure be
would be among them.
At last, eue man?he was of those whose cemraerco lav
; among the graves?resolved to question this strange com- ]
panion. .Next night, when he iuul eaten hi* poor meal vo?
raciously (he was accustomed tssd. ".hat, lhe?- bad observed.
a< though hu had no other in the d-- ), this fo. V>w sat down
at his elbow.
" A black night, master .' "
"? It is a black night."
" Blacker than last, though that was pitchy too. Did n't i
: I pass you near the turnpike in the < Ixford-ruud .' "
" It 'a like you may. I do n't know-."
" Come, come, master." cried tho fellow, urged on by the
looks of his comrades, and slapping him on the shoulder:
'? be more companionable and communicative. Be more the
gentleman in this good company. There an1 tales among us
that you h ive told yourself to the devil, and I know not what."
" Wo all have, have wo not*" returned the stranger, look?
ing up. " If we were fewer in r.nmK'r, peruaps he would give
" It g'.rs rather hard with you. indeed," said the fellow, as
the stranger disclosed V.is haggard, unwashed face, und tora
clothes. "What of that 1 Bo merry, master. A stave of .
a maring sung now ? "
" Sing you, if you desire to hour one." replied tho other,
shaking him roughly otTj " and do n't touch me,, if you 're a
prudent man; I carry nrms which ??? oft" easily?they have
done so before now?and make it dangerous for strangers
who do n't know the trick of them, to lay hands Upon me."
?? \)>i you threaten?" said the fellow.
"Tes," returned the other, rising, ami turning upon him.

repelled the bystanders. Although in a very different sphere
of action now, they were not with.ru: much of the effect they
had wrought at the Maypole Inn.
?? I nrti what you all are. and live as you all do." said the '
man, starnly. after a short silence. " I am in hiding here
like the rest, and if wo were surprised, would perhaps do my
part with the best of ye. If it's aay humor to be L'ft to
myself, let mo have it. Otherwise"?and here he swore a !
tremendous oath?" there'II be mischief done in this plae?.
though there are odds of a score against me."
A low murmur, having its origin perhaps in a dread of the .
man nnd the mystery that surrounded him, or perhaps in u
sincere opinion on the part of some of these present, that it
would bo an inconvenient precedent to meddle too curiously
with n geiitl"in:in's privat? affairs, if he saw reason to con- i
en! them, warned the fellow who had occasioned this dis?
cussion that he had best pursue it no further. After u short
lime, the strange man lay down upon a bench to sleep, and
when thev thought of him again, they found that he was gone.
Next night, as toon as it was dark, he w as abroad again ami
travers:ng the streets, he was before the locksmith's house I
more than once, but tha family were ?>ut, and it was close !
shot. This ni;'ht ho crossed Lend.in bridge and pas-ed into [
Southwark. As he glided down a bye street, a woman with
a little basket on her arm, turned into it at the other end.
Direetly he observed hor. lie sought tho ?heiter of an arch
way, and stood aside until she had passed. Then he emerged
cautiously from his hi.ling-place, ami followed.
She went into several shops to purchase various kinds of
household necessaries, and round every place at which sho
stopped ho hovered like her evil spirit: following her when
she reappeared. It was nigh eleven o'clock, and tho passen?
gers in the streets were thinning fast, when she turned, doubt?
less to go home. The phantom stiil followed her.
?She turned into the same bye street in which he had seen
her first, which, being free from shops, and narrow, was ex- 1
trcmely dark. She quickened her pace h., as though dis?
trustful of being stopped, and robbt 1 ofsiv. t trilling property
as sh- carried with her. He crept along on the nther side of
the road. Had she been gifted with the speed of wind, it
seemed as if his terrible shadow would have tracked her down.
At length the widow?for she it was?readied her own
door, and, panting for breath, paused to take the kuy from
her basket. In a flit sit and glow, with the haste she had
made, am! the pleasure of being safe at home, -he -looped to
I draw it out. when, raising her brad, she saw him standing
, silently beside her; the npparition of a dream.
i His hand was on her mouth, but that was needless, for her
tongue clove to its roof, and the power of utterance was gone, j
1 " I have been looking fur you many nights. Is the house
I empty? Answer me. Is any one inside?"
She could only answer by a rattle in her throat.
j " Make me a sign."
Sho seemed to indicate that there was no one there. He ,
took the key, unlocked the door, carried her in, and secured
it carefully behind them.

i them ton deep in tln-ir new bed. There is a natural anxiety

On the 14th of Januar?. 18'Jy, the Globo said: '* General
Jackson,in preferring Ivs friends to his enemies, will be Prest
idem of the ii itioa.'1 On the I7ih of the sunt? month, il sa:d :
?' One of the fundamental principles of our Government is,
that the will ot" the majority shall prevail; and, when any po
litical party gains n:i ascendancy over another, it is tu be pre?

tiie policy pursued by the great Jet'orsa*, whose wisdom,
purity atid patriotism no man can question."
On the 16th of the following March th<- Globe said :

President to bo able to werk thnt qficient reform which the
people look tor at his hands, if he retains in office, to tho ?x

Such was the language of the Wa?hingiou Globj in 1529.
fclow different is us language now !
In spite of a more fierce and unprincipled opposition than
any administration ever encountered, the good work* of the
Whig parry in this State proceed firmly and surely. The
Currency measures, the Militia Reform,' and the total aboli?
tion of Imprisonment tor Debt, crowned the last Whig Lo
gulature with imperishable honor. The present Legislature
is like to deserve even more of the public gratitude. The
policy of IV Witt Clinton for tho benefit of the Partner bos
been revived by the passage of the act for tin? promotion of
Agriculture. The law regulating Elections has been ordered
to a third reading. The act for the improvement of the
Common schools is in a similar state of forwardness. We
are -juito sure that the bill enlarging the allowance of Prop
erty exempt from Execution will become a law. Thsre is
much rouson to hope that ihe initiatory measure will be
adopted to bring within the nurture, of oar Schools all tho
children in the State. The Fublw Improvements ure cau?
tiously but firmly prosecuted under circumstances of pressure
and embarrassment unknown in the previous history of the
State. The Whig Legislature will, before its adjournment,
put the interests of the State in good condition, and then
comes the first session of n Whig Congress. Ths 2~? '*"
sury will bo abolished, b sound and uniform currency will be
restored, the Tariff will be revived,and the avails of the pub?
lic Lands then distributed. Then the prosperity of the coun?

Representation in tin State Legislature.?Some of the
journals in Connecticut nre urging the po?sy of asicui^g
the State Constitution so as to provide for a new scale of re?
presentation in the Legislature of that Commonwealth.
Under the present system, nearly all of tho old towns have
two representatives, and those newly formed bat one, no re?
gard living hud in either case to the population. Thus, Now
I lavcn, w iih a popu'ntiou of more lhaa 14,000, sends but (tee
members?while eight smaller towns, with an aggregate of
only 9,539, have sixteen. This, manifestly, accords but
badly with our theoretical connection between representation
and population. The Hurt ford Courier, which first broach?
ed tint subject, proposes to give ? ach town one Representa?
tive as its corporate right; and allow additional representa?
tion in proportion to the voters?1000 being the basis for a
second member; 1250 for a third; 1500 for a fourth, etc.?
allowing fractions tu be represented?a town having 100 on
the registry list being entitled lo a second Representative
one year in ten, at its option ; or)0, five in ten; 1 125, a third
one in tan ; - 100, three regularly, and an additional one year
Efforts will probably bn made to procure some action on
the subject at the present session of the Legislature.
American Steamships.?With reference to the contem
! establishment of an American line of steamers between
this port and England, tho Commercial Advertiser of Satar
' day has the following paragraph:
Contracts for building two of the ships have bean signed?
the models nru completed, and the limlsvr procured. The
. builders arc Messrs. Smith, Demon ami Comstock,well knows
as excellent naval architects The ship.j. are to bo C500 tons
each, and three hundred feet in lentrth. Each is to have two
engines of 400 horse power?equivalent to 1014 horse power .
according to English computation. The two are to be finished
; in eighteen months, and as -son as they are completed the
keels of the other two arc to be laid. They are to make the
passage from New-York to kinglind in ten days average ?
that is, the time allowed for the passage, under ordinary cir?
cumstances, is to be ten days, while, if favored by wind and
weather, the ships are expected to make the run in nine, or
j perhaps less; of course, w<ien the cirtnimstancesare unpro
.' pitious, the run may !>c protracted to twelve or thirteen days.
The negotiations with the Government of the United Stales

be made to this eff.-.-t; but whether it is or nrst, the ships will
