DEATH OF JUDGE EVANS.
The telegraph brings the grievous instelligenco of
the sudden demaiso of ]Jon. JOSIAH J. EvAss, our
senior Senator In Congress. We beg to aplpropriate
n the oceasiou the language of our cotemporary of
the South Cur-lialun, who Zsys:
"The telegraph announaces the malancholy intelli
genee,. of the dunth of the Hon. Joa.iah J. Eivan,
United Stater Sonator fron South Carolinn. Thus
another of our faithful servants has been struck down
from his high position. No iman's public carear has
been more enviable than Isis. Front early life he has
been identifled with the history oif South Carolina;
her brightert anid most responsible utlices have been
confided to him-yet, during that lung career of use
fulness, not tho slightest reproach has ever been east
upon his character. is unsullied purity proved a
cuirass of defonee so strong that envy nor malice ever
dared attack. He was a perlect relaresentative of the
Republican man. Uunassuming and modest in his re
lations to his fellow-:nen, he was exalted. stern u:d
indexilble in the dse-harge of his luties. His was
one of those high naturos that w:,a tle terror of tho
mean and sel!sh. This gave the more indication of
his opinion all the effect of at powerful argumaent. Ar.
opinion from him, every one felt satisfied was the re
sult of an honest purp-ee and a mature deliberation.
Judge Evans graduated at the South Carolina College,
in the year ISO.
In 1812, le was elected Cou:n:.sioner in Equity
for Cheraw District. Ile was a ne..'..-r of the Legis

State Solicitor for the Eastern Circui.. These posi

trust of a seat upoaa tle juelicial beach. In the dis
charge of this arduous trut, he continued unatil tiae
winter of 185, when le was elected to the Uited
States Senate. There he remained, ever at his post,
until removed by death, in the seventy-secocd year
of his ago. is services there have been modest but
efficient. He was not one who spoke for popularity,
but labored unassumingly but steadily from a consci
entions conviction. An other of South Carolina's dis
tinguished son4 has passed away. One by One, in
too rapid succession, they are passing away. Before
the solemn funeral tramp to the obsequies of one has
died away, we are summoned to the death-march of

DEATh OF JABEZ B. TALBERT.
It is our sad duty to chronicle this week (he death
of one of the best and truest sons of Edgefield. JA
ass B. TALBERT departed this life at his residence in
this District on Sunday last, the 0th of May, in the
42nd year of his age. It is with melancholy satis
faction that we lay upon his grave a brief but heart
felt tribute to his worth and usefulness.
Mr. TALBERT was one of the noblest of men in
all the varied relations of life. It is only for those
attached friends and relatives who knew him inti
snately, to estimate arighat his value as a neighbor,
father, son, husband, brother and friend. In each
of those connections, he was regarded an exeamplary
model, and was beloved, as few men are, In his con
scientious discharge of the tonder ob'igations which
thus clusteriad around his existenee. In. the duties of
the citizen, he was known to all as a man of unbenud
ing integrity, sterling ability, and hightoned patriot
ism. He loved his Country, his God, and Truth, and
shaped all hais purposes and actions by their require
ments. Never having aspairead to any political pre
ferment, he was never in public life. Yet paerapas no
man ever lived in the Distriet, who in hsis sphere did
s-~ - Vsaore:.to elevatotlh moralmand'political -tenileneiea.of
*the people with whom his lot was-cast ; and this, by
* the constant inluence of a really brilliaa home ex

neighbors the loss of a genuine friend, a chivalrous

METTO RAC-UNIO. I THIC ADDRESS S
It-was an animated day,-Tuosday the 4t,-in the
boautiful Capital of South Carolina. Defure the
hour of ten iu the morning, 1ehordsoan Street (the
Broadway of Culumabia) was rapidly thronging with
citizens and xtrangers, eager to participate in the
grateful dutis of the occaasion. These conlsisted in
uniting iuith the nsublu reunan tof the 'huettao Regi
ment in commueamorating te recurrenea of their As
sociatio'.s anulversary, and iu reudering respect and
hon.age tq that reteran "tionaeral of the, Palmetta.,"
JouX A. QUITMAA ; And admirably indeed were these
duties dischargel, whether as to the manner (or Lhe
spirit of their perf'ormanve.
The procession, which is said to have been the lar
gest ever witnossed in Columbia, was formed (as of
yore) in front of the time-worn Court House, and at
once marched thence to the re.idence of Col. ALLa
Gnas where General QtUAl \ was for the present
under hospitable detention. The welcome to the
brave old hero was pronounced by Lieutenant STAN
.uY of Company- , Palmetto Regiment. His ad
drees, sines published, was a decidedly gom thing.
and a gratoful. Indeed the handsome anda' manly
Lieutenant discharged his eutito share of the day's
transactions in a mannor that won the applause of
both 14die: and gentlemon. Leaving Col. Gnzaru's,
the procession pased on in lengthened array, and
pursued its course to the College Chapel through the
strest next parillel to Richardeon. What with the
Military Compa:e -, the Arsenal Cadets, the Fir. Com
panies, the Sucrot Orders, the Citizens generally, the
renmesnat of tie Palmuetto lerginen-t, and the inumedi
ate cortege of Gesneral QVITVAN, the line WaS one of
very considerablo nuaubers an4 .4 marked respecta.
!ii:y. Bat the- formed only a fraetion of the mnul
tilt.lo assem'bled in the city. The Chapel was al
ready nerty filled, whon the h,id or the processiou
halted itt the loor. The wonder was Low so many
musre could be necomm:odatld; and in point of fact
they were nut,-for several hundred, after all possI
ble squeezing and contraction of limbs, were left out
side. The -catlcd pers,n, lalius and gentlemon,
anett have ox, ce led two thousaud,-sume placed
the cstimate nuch higher. Of course it was a bril
liant eight,-when was there ever an assembly of
that size, comaposed in great. part of the fairer sex,
which was not? Dut this one seemed peculiarly so,
at least from oLr 4sand-point,-and many bright faces,
with pretty lipis, glowing chocks and laughing eyes,
-till come un.1; o, appear and dissppear, I0 the gath
oring at the Chapel recurs to view. It was sauch a
pleasure too to see them-thoro,-not merely becanso
it is good to look at tho dear creaturce anywhere and
verywhere; but boeause i& was, this tima, beauty
'miling upon chivalry, love admiring heroism. And
.suroly the bravo QUIuAN, and the gallant PAlmetto
urvivors, felt and prized the complimost.
A pictnre long to bo remo:nbored wai there photo
graphed, not only upon the soft boart of woman, but
upon many also of steruer naterial. On the rostrum
Lt the upper end of the Chapel, sat the veteran Hero
of the Garita do Belon, the contre of a group of sev
enty-seve n heroes. Bowed from his wonted strength
by tihe effects of a terrible malady, he might be re
prded almo-t a wreok of his former self. Yet there
was still enough of fire in his large blue eyes, and
still enough of strength n his sinewy frame, to oia
.Je the beholder readily to realize what he was
-amidst the din of battle, with all his armor on and
his bright sword refiecting back the " flashing of the
guns." On his right, en his left, and in his rear,
were seated those members of the Soutth C~golirea Reg
iment, to whom the privilege had been vonchyared of
once more meeting their beloved commander, comrade
and friend. Silent and serious wore they all, the
ero-Ijader and the remnant of his hero-band. What
were their relleetious, it is not for an observer to por
tray. For who can conceive the remembrances that
must swell the tree soldier's breast, when brought
thus to review the past of an ardeous campaign like
that which fell to the lot of thicec brave men!i Who
can imagine the thousand incidents, of the march, of
the bivouac, of the camp and of the battle-field,
which oeh soldior cherishes In his heart of hearts,
and whielh ho ses aulnw iimself -as"no onei
else can see and know them! Dot when those remini
seences are linked with the memory of dead com
rades, severed friendships, blighted aspiratious,
when every stirring scene that is recalled brings te
mind somne friend now sleeping in death, and whose
life-blood was the seal of his heroic fidelity,-when
of eleven hundred strong meun who went forth togetheri
to bear their part in the cause of their common coon
try, he sees scarcely two hundred left, after the lapse
of a few uwift years, to join hands and htearts in an
nual commemoration of their perilous experience,
it then indeed becomers an impossibility to estimate
aright thme powerful emotions which spring unbidden
in that soldier's heart. No one could hare looked
upon the seventy-seven survivors who hero clustered
around their General, without feeling that he was in
the presene of a stricken band, rion sulltary andi
sad amidst a multitude-rapt in the depth and ferror
of their varied recollections,-nmindful of the pa.
geant around them exe-ept in so Ar as their grateful
hearts acknowledged the tribute in behalf of their
dead companions. But to the narrative of the day's
Amid the apiplause of the waiting auditory, Gener
al Qrmxaa at unce~addrossed himself to the duty he
imd consented to perform. As his speeck will eer
tainly be published, we may only say here that ever~
one was pleased with its style matter, and temper. It
will be found to be a valuable lamephlet in connec
tion with the history of the Me.xican war, and par
tiularly so in respect to that brilliant episode of the
war which reeunts the fortunes and the porils, the
"noble deeds and daring high," of our own BrTSu
and his devoted Palmnettoes. Although it contained
no set phrases of compliment, no express declaration
of the Regiment's superiority to oters with whom
they were associated, it was yet such an onunciation
of facts favorable to their fame, as will in history en
euro to them the rank of the " bravest of the bravwe.'
Te address may be looked for with interest. It will
of course be esteemed a testinmonial of undoubted
authority auong military men', and will certainly
prove an offering of high acceptation with the peo
plo of South Carolina.
Before andi after the speerh, a choIr of ladies and
gentlemen gave from a we.ll chosen part of the gal
lry, suitable odes, written for the occasion,-the first
by Win. ti:Luoaa Smaus, the second by Howann HI.
CALtIWELL.. This part oaf the exercises was quite
elective, particularly with the Palmettoos. Many oi
them afterwards said that their feelings were enkin
ded into a glow of melancholy satisfaction while
listening to the dulcet strains of approbation into
which woman's voice so largely entered. It was
observable that tears fied the eyes of many of thenm
as in deepest silence they looked up towards the
choir in front of them, and drank in as it were the
meldy of their patriotic music. This was a well
cnsidered and cleverly arranged part of the denton
tratioi. The wdo by HowAnn HI. CALDWEI.L ran
Sing in loud, triumnphal numbers,
Sing a grateful nation's lay !
Dead must be the heart that slumbers
Throbless, on this solemn day.
Sing the men, whose stout hearts heating
Reeked not of the deathful strife;
Hearing Honor's voice repeating
" Is not Duty more than life ?"
Twine the cypress, twine the laurel,
'Round brave Butler's honored name;
While to coming times, the moral
lBe has taught us, gilds his fame ;
Nobly for his country dying
Shouts of victory thrilled his ears;
* While that soul to Heaven is lying
Who may count its rapturous prayers ?
Think we of the brave who perished
Far beneath that tropie sky;f
In our heart of hearts be cherished
Memories, all too diep to die.
'Tis not all a dark afflition,
This stern thought of these who died;
But the nation's benediction
And that weeping nation's pride I
By this pride the surest token,
Know your amaranthine fame,
More than may by words be spoken,
Still thro' ceaseless years the same :
Wreatheai in maany a bardie story,
Sung to many a mountain lyre,

Our judicious and tasteful Governor hail succeeded,
by correspondence with the Executors of Old Hickory,
in having it agreed, that those bequests should be
veited in the President of the South Carolina Pal
motto Aesociation, as the ofiicer of that body, to be
hold by him and his successors in oiffice, and finally
to become the property of the last surviving member
of the Pa'.metto Itegitent, " to hiia and his hoirs
forever." The arrangement is an admirable one, it
would seem; and the Governor is thus saved the
delicate task of deciding.who is the bravest, " where
all," as he obsorvud, " were so truly brave." What
shall be that last living name on the Palmetto Roll,
may be conjectured variously with every changing
year; but Fate's decrees are anticipated in vain.
Yet it may be that a much shorter time than fifty
years will decide the fee in remainder. The circum
stance is well calculated to remind us all how true it
The boast of heraldry. the prop of power
And all that beauty, all that wealth e'or gave
Awirt alike the inevitable hour,
The paths of/glory lead but to the grare.
His Excellency, Governor ALLSTON, was partieu
larly felicitous in presenting these gifts, accompany
iog the duty as he did with some well-timed and
well-conceived romArks, which were greeted with
plaudits of delight by the large audience. Lieuton
ant STANLY received the boquosts with manly grace,
and, in a brief soldierly response, acknowledged his
own and the regiment's gratitude. Th e whole affair
was handsomo,-eminently befitting tho occasion and
its other more prominent purposes.
Let us now hasten to poop ini at the Ball, after
taking a good old-fashioned dinner at IuicT's,-after
talking with the genial Mc-s, the eminently ver
Ssatile 0-s, and others, over the proceedings of the
moruieg,-after procuring a ticket in due fornm,
und after walking a half-naile to bog roses and pome
wranite-flowere for the ladies. All the world was at
Kindler's spncious hall by 10, o'clock in the evening.
The Bull was then fairly opened. Fashion and floun
eus, beauty and bouquets, hilarity and hoops, music
and the military, dancing and delights-tuo-numuerous
to-mention, pervaded the rooms throughout the en
tire happy evening. The supper, which closed the
festive hours, was ample and variod. The old here
QerTMx bravely stood out to the lust, occupied al
most as actively as ever General was upon the battle
field,-now, surrounded by beautiful ladies with hearts
brim full of respectful regard,-then, accopetng the
cordial salutations of the old men and the young,
here, reciprocating the converse of politicians,-there,
hearksening gallantly to the gentlo phrases of woman.
Present also worp the lunoraobl9s L. M. NIECTT and
M. L. Doxuit, Thero too was his Excollunoy, the
Governor;- And the Generals; And Judges; And
Solicitors; And Lawyers; and Editors; and Mor
chants ; and Gentlemen of elegant leisure; and last,
but still the foremost whether in love or in war, the
surviving oaicers and men of the renowned Palmetto
Regiment. It is only to be addod, that no single
circumstance occurred to detract from the pleasures
of this jubilee, either during the stirring day or the
joyful night which succeeded it. We conclude with
the heart-felt hope that the Anniversary may grow
in interest for a hundred years to come, and that the
people of the State may flock to its celebration in
increasing numbers'every year. It will be better
than building a monument,-better for the Palmuet
toe', bettor for us anal our children, better for the
famo and character of South Carolina.
Fielding's celebrated story of Tomn Jhnce, besides
being one of the most natural and engaging narratives
extant, abounds in wisdom and In wit. Amid a num
her of marked passages, we pone at random upon
the following :
1. Of his use of the word " mob,"[the author says:
"Whenever this word occurs in our writings, it in
tends persons without virtue or sense, In all stations;
and many of the highest rank are often meant by it."
2. In telling of the good Mr. Allworthy's hospital
ities, it is sai4 tlig "gypry visitor in his house was
.perfeet'mastarpof his own haousp.sad as he might at
pleasure satisfy all his appetites within the restrlotioni
only of lawr, v'irtuo and religion; so ho might if his
health required or his inclination prompted him to
tomperanoc, or even to abstinence, ab...nt himself
fram any meals, or retire from them when so disposed,
without even a solicitation to the contrary. For in
deed such solicitations always savour very strongly
of commands; but all here were free from such im
pertinence." Good food for reflection thaat, and
whose cud all hosts would do well to eow a while
before their next entertainment, whether it be for a
successioa of days or for a single evening.
3. The next excerpt thus speaks for itself:
" One of the maximns which the Devil, in a late visit
upon earth, left to his disciples, Is, when once you are
got up, to kick the stool from under you. In plain
English, when yoa have made your fortune by the
good offices of a friend, you are advised to discord
him as soon as you can." A DavaL/s MAxIx, vESILYv!
4. Of prudence in preserving appearances here is a
short but forcible lecture:
" Prudence and circumspection are necessary even
to the best of mn-n They are indeed, as it were, a
guard to virtue, without which she can never be safe.
It is not enough that your designs, nay that your
actions, are intrinsically good; you must take care
they shall appear so. If your inside be never so beau
tiful, you must preserve a fair outside also. This
must baa constantly looked to, or malice and envy will
take cure to blacken it so, that the sagacity and good
ness of an Allworthay wIll tnt ho able to see through
it, and diacern the beauties withIn. Let this, mny
young readers, be your constant maxim, that no man
can he good enough to enable him to neglect the rules
of prudence; nor will virtue herself boak hesautiful,
unless she he bedecked with the outward ornaments
of dedency end decorum. And this precepat, :ny wor
thy disciples, if you read with due attention, you will,
I hope, find sufficiently enforced by examlalos ho the
5. The author illustrates the effect of Garrick's act
ing by en anecdote. Tou Joxns and his man PAnf.
niaas are at the play-house, where the following
*"As soon as the play, whieh was Hamlet Prince of
Deoumark, began, Partridge was all attention, nor did
he break sibouce till the entrance of the ghost ; upon
which he asked Jones, What :man that was in the
strange dress ? "Somnething," said he, "like what I
havo seen in a picture. Sure it is not armnur, is it ?"
Jones answered, " That is the ghost." To which Part
ridge replied with a smile, " Persuade me to that, sir,
if you can. Though I can't say I ever actually saw
a ghost in :ny life, yet I aita certain I should know
one, if I saw hinm, laetter than thtateemes to. No, no,
sir. ghosts dhoo't applejar in such dresses as that, neith
er." In this mistako, which caused mnuch laughter
in the neighburhood of Partridge, he was suffered to
continue, till the scene betweoon the ghost and Hamlet,
when P'artridge gave that eredit to Mr. Garrick which
he hadl denied to Jones, and fell into so violent a
trembling, that his knees knocked against each other.
Jones asked himo what was the matter, and whethaer
he was afraid of the warrior upon the stage ? "0 Ia !
sir," said ho, "I perceive now it is what you told
mne. I am not afraid of any thing; for I know it is
but a play. And if it was really a ghaost, it could do
one no harm at such a distance, and in so mnuch com-.
pany; and yet. if -was frighatened, I am not $he on
ly person."-" Why, who," cries Jones, "dust thou
take to lae such a coward haure besides thyself?"
"Nay, you may call me coward if you will; but if
that little man there upon the stage is not frightened,
I never saw any man frightened in my life."
"When the scene was over, Jones said, "Why,
Partridge, you exceed my expectations. You emjoy
the play more than I conceived possible."-"Nay,
sir,'" answered Partridge, "if you are not afraid of
the devil, I can't help it; but, to he sure, it is natural
toa be surprised at such things, though I know there
is nothing in thema: not that it was the ghost that
surprised me neither ; for I should have known that
to have been anly a man In a strange dress: hut when
I saw the little man so frightened himself, it was that
which took hold of me."-"And dost thou imagine,
then. Partridge." cried Joines, " that he was really
frightened ?"-"Nay, sir," said Partridge, "did not
you yourself obiserve afterwards, when he found it
was his own father's spirit, and how he was murdered
in the garden, how his fear forsook him by degrees,
and he was struck dumb with sorrow, as it were, just
as I should have been, had it been mny own case.-Jiut
hush! 0 Ia! what noise is that ? There he is aiguin !
--Well, to be certain, though I know there Is nothing
at all in it, I ant glad I am nomt down yonder, where
those meni are." Then turning his eyes again upon
Hamlt,"Ay, you msy draw your swordI; what signi
fies a sword against the power of the devilI""
6. We have only room for one ether passage, upon
the power of beauty; and we ugly people may reason
ourselves Into consolation as best we can, but there is
certainly something in what Fielding says:
" To say the truth, perfect beauty in both sexes Is a
more irresistible object than it is generally thought:
nore homely lot., and learn by rote (as children do
o repeat what gives them no idea) to despise outside,
int to value more solid charmt, .yet I have always
>bservod at the approach of consummate beauty, that
hese more solid charms only shine with that kind of
,astre which the stars have after the rising of the sun."

In my last, I threatened thiaIts successor should
be rambling and gossiping, soiee goes t. Lot the
ladies take the frst place, andisomething in the first
place to interest the ladies. .
Here, as in Haznburgh, hoops are not to be found,
neither fortifying the female 'fgure, nor hanging at
hop door#. If they ever worh. fshionable in these
parts, the fact has now becomitraditional Quite the
opposite style is cultivated, lngth and lankness be
ing apparently quite recherche. Ia Berlin two thirds
of the women are perfect giantegae as to heigt, and
look as if they might be descended in-a straight line
from the tall grenadiers of Friderick the Great and
his father. The dearth of beauty among them is
appalling! Many, to be sure, ithe undoubtedly fine
looking, but beauty of featur'o or delicacy of limb,
does nout exist; no small handi, no pretty feet. An
Anerican, and especially a Biutherner, must stay at
home, or at least keep out of Giermany, if he inds fe
male beauty essential to his comfort.
But to return to the modes among the fair ones of
Berlin. They wear waists just as long as 'tie possi
tie to got them, with endless peaks before and behind;
very becoming this, to ladies ofoeonsiderable embon
point, but not at all the thing for the descendants of
the grenadiers. Two and ttree'skirts, and two and
three Bounces prevail as among us,-outward cover
ings not materially different. -Bonnets are getting to
be visible from the front, indeed, some are positively
long, and the caprice in veils is highly striking. Eve
ry body created in the likeness of mother Eve, wears
a veil, be she a dame of for score, or an infant in
arms; the baby in its wicker carriage, the little girl
of five years, the miss of fourteen, the maidon of
oighteen or twenty, and so on down to old age!
These veils, beside the stapdard ones of black and
white lace, are made of varies thin materials in all
colors, pink, blue, lilac, and even yellow and green;
many are cut roundisk and trimmed along the edges
with light, leecy fringe of great width, and also of
Very handsome toilettesarevery seldom seen upon the
strout, but at the Opera, and often at the Table d'Hute,
the ladies dress exquisitely and with much grandeur,
the long waists and absence of hoops to the contrary
notwithstanding. Opera costume is full evening dress,
that is, loads of feathers and fowers upon the head,
loads of lace and jewelry upon the bare arms and
neck, with flounces and forbelows to match. One sees
here such lace as is not to be found in America. The
familiar exclamation among ladies is "Ach Herr
Jesu !" which is no more nor less than, 0, Lord Jesus.
I jump from women to wine. You know we are ac
customed to associate "love, wine and women." How
sad I feel that my experience does not allow me to ex
patiate upon the first of these cardinal delights!
Germany is an Eden in respect to its wines, and in re
spect moreover to its Insocenee of Brandy, Whiskey,
Rum and Giu. Brandy can be had at a moment's
warning, but thepeople are guiltless of it. Bordeaux
and Rthine Winos, with Lager, Drown and Bavarian
Deor, form the conmmon and indispensable beverages.
Bordeaux and Rhine Wines, such as St. Julien,
Chateau Margeaux, Leoville, Mareobrunner, Hoch.
heimor, &c., are to be had fer just half what we pay
for them in America. One of the most popular Rhine
Wines is called " Liebfrauenmelch," which being
translated, is " milk of dear woman." Beer is drunk
to excess by all clauses; the best is the Bavarian,
which is clear, sparkling and foaming. A stranger
must needs cultivate' $e beer somewhat before it is
altogether palatable. .A
It is out of my pe , as I said before, to expatiate
much upon love, ho 1 can at least upon kissing,
which is nexjt to it. Alas, not this of which I am go
ing to speak I I allude to the German custom of
men kissing each other. Yes, 'tis true, and at every
railway depot does one become an eye witness of this
atrocity. To ace twohearty, handsome, frank young
fellows kiss each other, Is perhaps tolerable; hut pic
ture to yourself two corpulent and hairless octogona
rians, or a couple ef lean, brown and bony giants, or
a brace of diminutive and hook nosed Israelites, fall
ing into each others arms, and prcssing lip to lip, and
cheek to cheek. Ba! !'Uis more than human nature, or
at least Anglo Saxon human nature cnn stand.
I ramble on. Oln the laud of sour krout, hot bread
is scarcely known, perhaps not ait all, save to the ba
kers. The only two kinds customary are light wheaten
rolls (of vast merit!) and rye or brown brea'd. Batter
akes, buckwheat cakes, (those at Mr. Wright's din
ner excepted I) wafers Ac., are totally unheard of. A
most excellent snd healthful custaom! And another
of the sa'me sort Is, thathere none stare at others, and
at a stranger especially ; be it when and where it may,
a single glance is all you will get, though you have
horns on your head, and it may be a tail.
German hotels of the first class are inferior I think
to the great hotels in American Cities and infinitely
deror ; the body of.your bill may be less, but stand
clear when the extras begin to appear-the latter are
moro numerous than locusta. The waiters at such es
tablihments are really very expert and accomplished,
but servile and mercenary to a degree most painful;
though they are arrayed in black broadcloth, white
cravat, pumps, &c., yet would they shed blood for a
few cents. 'Tis exactly so however, with their bet
trs ! An American knows much better how to ap
preciate his own "land of libcrty," after travelling
in Europe. The maid servants are remarkably ath
letic, more so even than the Emerald females at the
North in our country, and do all the hard work ; the
color in their cheeks and in their hare arms approach
es the hue of the beet-root or mashed mulberries.
All people here, except the very high nobility, are
comparatively poor; a very straitened and narrow
suport in America would, ia Prussia, be quite a for.
tune. As for titles, they are well nigh as common as
family names; Counts, Barons and Military gentle
men, vegitate in any and every common lodging house.
Our present representative in Berlin, Mr. Wright of
Indiana, has not, from what I can hear, made a very
agreeable impressiun. He is .what we would call a
plin man, plain in manners andi education. His cele
brated dinuner toa Baron Humboldt and other nobilities
of the city, at which he had buckwheatcakes, hominy
and other dishes peculiar to .America, and no toine,
was more (or less rather) than the Prussian Court cir
cle could stomaeh. He holds receputio.ns every Satur
day evening, and these are also on the temperance
pirinciple. is Secretary of Legation is polite, hos
pitblo, and altogether a fine fellow.
A stranger in Berlin has no diflieulty in getting a
fll view, and often if he wishes, of the royal family, as
they frequent most of the amusements, besides riding
and walking considerably in public. In all the respec
table Theatres, and other such buildings, is a gorgeous
royal box, draped with red, gliptening with gold, and
surmounted by the Black Eagle of Prussia, wherein,
as a general thing, some oui or more of the Princes
or Princesses are to be espied. These are very nu
mneros, for though the king has nia child himself, yet
his brothers and sisters have had remarkable success
in adding to the census returns.
Prince Prederick William (nephew of the king) and
his English bride are still objects of unanimous in
terest. They are gazed at and run aTter, asthough
they were made of gold with diamond eyes-pictures
of them fill every shop window and ornament, the
backs of all books and musiec; capacious bosoms and
lan' arms beer their faces In breastpins and bracelets,
and all things of all kinds are named in honor of
them. And truth to say, they make a decidedly In
teresting couple. The young Prince is a fresh, hand
some, manly fellow, with an engaging address, apd
becomes well his brilliant red uniform. The Princess
looks younger than she really is, fair, round, plump,
nd taken upon the- whole, pretty; with beautiful
Iwhite neck and arms, quantity of hair always combed
f her forehead, winning smile, Ac., &c. She dresses
enerally in flowIng white or pink, and a wreath, I
ith hundreds of sprays falling all around upon hera

The old King Is at Potsdam still in a deplorable a
tate of mind and body. Ilia brother, "the Prince p
if Prussia," father of the above young Prince, is for e
he time being a sort of regent. The Princess of a
russia, mother of young Frederick William, is of the
-oyal family of Saxe Weiman and a first cousin of a
he Emperor of Russia.-The Opera in Berlin is not I
o be equaled except in Paris or London, and the I
3allet in said to be the very finest in the world. The t
eople of Berlin have a passion for dancing and dan- r
.ors, which amounts to a perfect mania. The Diree. I
or of the Ballet is Paul Taglioni, and the leading a
Danseuse, Marim Taglioni, brother and neico of the
mmortal and retired Taglioni. This Marie is tall, I
seautiful, ad, as an artist, but little inferior to her t
sover-quite-to-bo-matched Aunt. She is strikingly I
like a young lady of our little village! Only last i
ight, she performed in La Sylphide! This was a
itiring evening in Berlin; La Sylphide, the most c
eautiful and popular of all Ballets, was revived and I
put upon the stage anew, new scenery, new dresses, I
sow eforts in every way. The Opera house was
-rammed with the Royalty, Nobility, Diplomacy,
Ililitary, Beauty and fashion of the Capitol; such I
uagnificence and perfection on the stage, in the boxes,
in the general getting up of things, never bofore met I
the republican eyes of your present narrator. To es
pay a picture of the dancing, and of Marie Taglioni
u the Sylph, would be to "gild refined gold or paint
the lily !"
It has also been my good fortune during my so
}ourn here, to see Joanna Wagner, the greatest singer
and lyric actress of Germany, in two of her grandest 4
roles, Lady Macbeth and Romeo. This lady has cer
tainly more voice than ever woman had before; in
compass, it reaches from the lowest and most manenish,
contralto to the highest and most florid soprano; in
volumo, it would fill St. Peter's. She sings with great
scienceo, great execution, great light and shade, but
yet lacks the charm of Italian singers. As an ac
tress I should class her with Grii, Rachel and Ristori;
her Lady Maeboth was grand, powerful, stirring-In
deed faultles, and with her extremely tall figure,
classic features and wealth of hair, she looked the
ambitious and merciless woman, as no other eould.
Hfer Romeo struck me as lacking tenderness both in
voioo and action. This lady, like the Taglionis, is of
illustrious -recodent, her father being Richard Wag.
ner, one of the stupendous and unfathomable German
composers, whose works are in a new vein, and who
is called the leader of the new school.
I feel that I am transgressiug all bounds of time,
patience and paper! On the morrow, I wend my
way towards Liepsic. J. T. B.

DriAn COt. :-I steal a moment to write you perhaps
the last letter this Session. It is a source of congrat-I
ulation that the Kansas question has been disposed
of by Cengress. For the last four years It has been a
theme for continued excitement and sectional agita
tion which has almost precipitated the country into
The mode adopted by Congress fur the adjustment
of tkis long penmding question will doubtless be warmly
received by the country.
The Dill reported by the Joint Committee of the
two Houses was supported not only cheerfully, but
with enthusiasm by every friend of the Lecompton
Constitution, with the exception of Oea'ls. Bonham 1
and Quitmnan. The fire Southern Know Nothings I
*ho voted against It have been acting with the Black
Republicans from the beginning. They are Semi-1
Black Republicans any way! So there were really
buttwo Southmern men against the measure on its passage
Gilmer, of North Carolina, one of the six Southern
Americans who voted for the Montgomery Crittendon
Amendment, supported the Dill. Nine members from t
the North, heretofore classed as "Douglas Democrat.," r
ame in to the support of the measure, vis: Owent
ones, of Pa., Lawrence, of Conn., Hall, Cockerile,
Groesbock and Pendleton, of Ohio, and English and
Forby of Indiana.
Mr. English it will he remembered, was the author
sf the Resolution under which the Committee of Con
erence was raised, lie is jest now the object of the ri
ost unmeasured abuse by the Black Republicans, o
>th in and out of Congress. This is certainly conclu- I
ive proof that he has rendered efficient service in
ettling this question, which was the only political s
tock in trade which the Black Republicans hadl. Mr.C
English deserves the thanks of the country for his
atriotie exertions in this adjustment.
The Bllack Republicans flattered themselves that
hey would find permanent allies in Douglas and all
>f his anti-Lecomnpton Democratic followers, but in
his they are badly sold. I prediet, before this session I
loses, they will be denouncing Douglas as fiercely as
boy are new abusing English; and I venture to say, T

There was quite a brilliant and successful demon
