Monday Morning-, July 24, 1865.
Wo' have freouently had occasion to
remark upon the general regard which a
* proper system of public amusements
creates for the proprieties in general. The
jnoralist not unfrequently selects E/anee
as an example, in illustration of this truth,
for the bent-fit of other nations. Germany
may be instanced also, and though the
^wo peoples differ, in very decided respects,
in national characteristics, there seems to
he a ver}- marked resemblance between
them, in regard to their uses of amuse,
tnents and thc effect of popular' epdrts
upon their morals and deportment. As
concerns the French, there can tie no doubt
of the wholesome, effejit, of amusements,
<*!uly legitimated, in soberizmg the pussions
and restraining them in excess; and the
great point seems to be to recognize, ii rsl,
thc necessity of amusements for the ho*Uh
ful exercise generally of mind and body;
and ncxt^the choice of these amusements,
and thc time to be accorded to them. Thc
amusements should ht' such as will exhiln
rate the mind and duly exercise the body,
?without stimulating thc passions to excess.
Mere games cf chance should be avoided,
and all Jjetting upon thc results diseou-'
r.n;ed. # Games which exercise thought and
memory and suggest combination-sports
which require agility and dexterity, and
develope the muscular powers of chest and
arms, in particular-these arc especially
preferable. Fencing, wrestling, boxing,
the cricket and ball plays, arc all admira?
ble, and so ?ye rbilliaids, especially fur
young women-contributing equally to
grace of movement and vigor ol' frame.
W*ro the public authorities to license all
these sports, on condition that yo ardent
epir?ts should b/? kept for sale within one
mile of The establishment, and that the
C refreshments should consist only of such
beverages as ale, cider, the light wires,
lemonades, l?-a, coffe", chocolate and icc
cream, according to ihcseason-the lice?V'
bebig i .' dti'd or. a Violation of these con?
ditions-we should be comparatively saft
from tho excesses* so corrupting and"ro
common inmost places d ed ?cutid to popu
lar amusements. The condition of tie
game, at such places, is usually*a drink
and so die habit i.~ formed. The appttit-.
is not native. It has. to be acquired al
some pains and ?perseverance, and is only
acquired because it is the tacit or pre
scribed CJUJ??OU of the game or of so
. but we digress. Let rs return to wha
?wc had to sa}" touching the proprieties o
the French people. These seem to bi
naturally endowed for amusement. It i
perhaps the character of all ilio?e arden
and elastic families, so impulsive and buoy
ant, which belong to the Qelticand Galli
stocks. The simple, elastic and naiv
spirit of these people conduces to amuse
ment and society, and these, in tum
maintain the congenial characteristics o
the people.. It makes the type of mini
for them, and qives thc familiar aspect t
their literature. They can sporfralon: th
surface as thc swallow skims the lake
while the coarser and less elastic Saxo
plunges headlon" into the wallow, and i
never satisfied he riots,.hog fashion, i
An English writer, in the London Tim-',
remarks, in a taste excessively Britislj, an
with a sneer, upon the familiar suseopt
bility of the French for enjoying even
thing. Having no keen sense of humo
he is confounded at the shallow sources i
their merriment. He can sse nb enjo'
ment ?D amusements which cover no inti
ency, or stories without mystery-forg?
tiug entirely tbe.moral illustration wh'u
.F.?op employed to defend himself again
the heinous charge ef indrlgfcg in a pu
rile amusement. This class of people h
been well described by one pf the sagi
who bade his pupils, at the very Pood
their merriment, resume their tasks, lo.
. grave, for a fool was at hand. Speak i ;
of the amusements of the ['renell, on i
three great days, of national glory, tl
writer, however, is complacent enough
grant them the abstract righi, to enj<
tlipmselvc.-i rs they pleast;. He says
ncvci beheld "a nation so entirely giv
u?> l-> joy and merriment." and, imbibii
-> ;_.. . -1 . itni portion of the api
of the scene--forgetting, toi*, in t hc sa:
riui'.i, th?, prejudices of his birth a
natron-from a sneer, he j falls into a co
pliment a^cl begins to approve. He SJ

the plethora Etigli.ddnan looks gniye- 4
even w^th the child?slPRarts of the show.
'Tlie jiotes OD the river,"" says he, "which
consisted pf ft number of poisons dressed
j in while, oecasioi?jd!\.pusliifi? each other
'from boats into the\vnter;,anJ thc horse
racing iu the Champ i1 Mars, would not
have afforded fuu to anybody at our side
of the channel; still, as each nation has ld
right to indulge its own taste in amuse?
ments, jt is only fair that the French
fehould please themselves in-those matters
The fiuest part of the coup d'ail to a
stranger was the .grouping of their multi?
tudes, and their orderly and Aceat, deport?
ment. Well dressed women and,children
weije mixed in the crowd down to? thc
water's edgV; tile windows and roofs of the
houses on thc quays were thronged with
occupants, and not an accident or any
. uncivil gesture was beheldjamong thc hun?
dreds of thousands, who were for hours
each day exposed to the Scorching rays of
a tropical sun. It was most gratifying to
see the humblest ?ersotis everywhere giv?
ing woy to place women and children in
the best situations for beholding lite
amusements, and there ftas a further gra?
tification of*beiug made sensible how easy
it. is to afford pastilles to,tn is ga}' and
light hearted people. The statesmen who
have in times past converted large portions
of them into savages, have much to air
swer for, or the people have of themselves
advanced much in civilization during tilt
la*-t thirty ye.trsT"
This passage, though mingled up will
something of a sneering and exclusiva
comment arv', contains the highest eulo
ilium upon the French national character
The playful trie!.-? of the people ujiou ead
ol lier, prompted by tho best feeling au:
received iu ?ike spirit, would not, it seems
have afforded fun to anybody or. the Fug
lish side of tho channel, yet tJiis latte
people, So insensible to such ?hildisl
attractions,'will assemble in thousands ti
seo two bruisers btiag up the eyes am
natter Ute persons of one another, fu
mousy and the popular mirth. Let then
not [?rate ot the Gladiatorial games of ii:
ancient Unmans, when they practice them
solves, ut. horne, an equally brutal and fa
more humiliating amusement. l*-t thei
sparc their sneers upon the French, win
if their delights are those of childrei
have tho luxury of knowing that the
also are ns innocent, while they feej th
more elevated consciousness,, that thes
amusements, unbending as they necessaril
do, the frequently hard strung bow ?.
personal and public l?bor, m?ritai an
bodily, does not unfit them fer wiv of th
severer duties and requirements ot life.
