Among Macaulay's "Laya of Ancient
Borne," m the poem of tho "Battle of Lake
Regillus," fought between the Unmans and
Latines, occurs the following graphic pic?
ture. The lines ring like blows of truest
"Now on each side the leaders
Gave signals for the charge,
And on each side the footmen
Strode on with lance and starge;
And on each side the horsemen
Struck their spurs deep in tbe gore;
And, front to front, "the armies
Met with a mighty roar.
And under that great battle
The earth with blood was red;
And like the P/mtine fog at morn,
The dust huug overhead;
And louder still and louder
Rose from the darkened field,
The braying of the war horns,
The clang of sword and shield;
Tho rush or squadrons sweeping
Like whirlwinds o'er the plain,
The shouting of the slayers,
The screeching of the* slain."
The Richmond Dispatch has heard
that Mr. Charles Dickens is about to
take another look at this country, and
thus welcomes him;
It was about twenty-five years ago,
we think, when Mr. Dickens first did
our country the honor of a visit. He
dropped in upon us in a neighborly
way, and was received with immense
hospitality. At that time, though a
young man, he was in the meridian
of his fame, and his popularity, in
the United States as in England, was
unbounded. We greeted him with a
perfect furore of enthusiasm. There
were some people who thought we
rather over-did the matter. They
said we went down upon all fom*s, as
it were, before this promising worship
of the British lion. But the truth is,
there never was a more genuine out?
burst of good feeling than that which
the great mass of our people displayed
Some flunkyism there was, as there
always will be, but the most of us
loved Boz like a brother. We iden?
tified tho man wi di his works, and
his works had always been true to
humanity, We were his debtors
for a vast amount of fun, and, what
was better, he had taught us to sym
?athize with the poor and suffering,
[e had never degraded his pen by
servility to rank and power. His
hero.es and heroines had been always
of the common mould, and when a
nobleman figured in his productions
it was not much to his advantage.
Such a genius and such a nature as
shone ia his pages touched an elec?
tric cord in the soul of this repub?
lican country. We welcomed him
with both hands and our whole heart.
His first speech at a Boston festival
rather opened our eyes. It was evi?
dent in that speech that, while we
fancied him hugely, he did not much
fancy us. That makes a great differ^
?Uce in matters of friendship and love.
?H-pte'ihu^ sentiments; to live long, must
? be somewhat r?eipAoc**n. fernaps we
did not deserve a return of our con?
fiding affections, but the fault that
Dickens found with us in his first
speech, and a great many other
speeches, need not haye ruade our
charmer so cold ; and the making it
the constant burthen of his song was
not calculated to raise him in our
One great sin, which it appeared he
had come across the water to reform,
was the neglect to protect, by a copy?
right law, the property uf British itur
thors in their productions. No one
gan dispute the justice of such a law,
Mn4 it ought to have been enacted
long ago. but we had not expected to
be lectured on our short-coming at
that time, in that way, and by that
man, It gave a kind of mercenary
aspect to our gay cavalier that chilled
the ardor of our young affections and
dispelled the halo of romance that
had encircled our hero's brow, But
the festivities to Dickens went on all
thc same, and his progress through
the (country was a perfect ovation.
At last, having speut two months
in traveling through sixteen States of
the American Union, Mr. Charles
Dickens returned to Europe and
wTote a book. We expend jt would
be a candid, just and somewhat
friendly estimate of our national cha?
racter and habits. We did not look
for anything very philosophical or
profound, but had the right to antici?
pate a brillijoik and good-Jfiimored
portraiture^^^pierican life. There
w ( iT?S om e^yj re du: tc d we should
Ji-jflPrTwas 1 .elie ved tl cit. it'
satirized at all, it would be in such
artistic style that we shoidd enjoy tmr
own dissection, But we were : . *o
be grievously disappointed. The
book overflowed with gall and venom.
There was scarcely :i drop of the milk
of human kindneag in it. It out
Trolloped Trollope, and in downright
misrepresentation and abuse threw
Hall and Maryatt into the shade.
As a specimen of wit and humor,
it was beneath contempt. He came
back at us in the same style in ! 'Mar?
tin Chuzzlewit," Instead of a Da?
mascus blade of bright and trenchant
, Satire, he cut us np with a rusty
butcher-knife, which, considering us
a nation of swine, he probably thought
the most appropriate weapon. For?
getting his own carricature in Pick?
wick of French travelers in England,
lie himself er acted tho part of Count
Hrnorltork in America. He gravely
dcclaii-.l ju his veracious sketches
(hat all American men chew tobacco
and talk through their noses, and
that all American women are ignorant.
He spoke of public journals in the
North as the Sewer, the Stabber, thc?
Family Spy, the Private Listener,
Peeper, the Plunderer, the Keyhole
A Dish for Dickens.
Reporter, the Rowdy Journal-a
nomenclature possibly suggested by j
his own character and instincts.
He represented an intelligent Ame?
rican editor, speaking in language
like this: "There a'int an engine
with its biler bust in these free United
States so fluinmuxed to a most e-tar
nal smash as that young crittur,
Queen Victoria, in her luxurious lo?
cation in thc Tower of London, will
be when she reads the next double
extra number of my paper. May the
British Lion have his tad eradicated
by the noble bill of the American
Eagle, and be taught to play on the
Irish harp aud the Scotch liddle the
enchanting music of Yankee Doodle,"
He was thrown into spasms, of
course, by the slave institution which
his own country had stablish ed in
America. "This, the land ot* liberty!
They're so fond of liberty in this
part of the globe that they buy bel?
aud sell her and carry her to market
with 'em. They've such a passion
for liberty that they can't help taking
liberties with her. The stars wink
upon the bloody stripes, and liberty
pulls down her cap upon hei cys, aud J
owns oppression in its vilest aspect
for her sister. "
Such aro some specimens of the
"Americau Notes" and "Martin
Chuzzlewit" productions, which may
provo thc author not only to be at
home in tho realm of fiction, but
never to leave them, and which cer?
tainly do not show to advantage by
the side of DeToqueville's profound
volume upon America, or the digni?
fied observations of Lord Marpe th,
and others of that class of English
gentlemen to which Mr. Dickens
does not belong either by social
position or by that higher patent of
a noble and magnanimous character
which nature confers.
The genuine jewel of his undenia?
ble genius sparkles in the head of a
toad, and even the touching pathos
of his protraitures of human suffer?
ing may have no deeper sources than
the equally beautiful sentimentality
When Mr. Dickens again visits our
! country, we hope he will find it more
to his likiug. He will discover that
we have survived his book on America,
and are doing as well as could be ex?
GENEKAIJ PISTON'S DETERMINATION.
I once heard an anecdote of Picton,
from an officer who was himself at
Waterloo. Picton, I was told by
this officer, was wounded thc day
before Waterloo, but had concealed
his hurt, and with the most heroic
fortitude, remaiuod in tho field.
During thc night, however, the agony
of his wound obliged him to send for
a surgeou, who remained with him
until dawn; and, on his leaving,
Picton thus addressed him:
"You say that my wound is dan?
gerous-mortal; that I am unfit for
duty, and must be represented so to
"Such is my opinion," said the
medical man. "I think it would bc
impossible for yon to take command
of your division."
"Leave me to judge that, sir," said
Picton, "and in the meanwhile, allow
?ne to ask you a question. From your
long knowledge of rue do you con?
sider me strictly capable of keeping
"I have eveiy cause to believe so,"
returned the surgeon; "but why the
question, Sir Thomas?"
"Simply for this reason," returned
Picton, "that I have made up my [
mind to be in the field with my !
brigade; and I give you my word of
honor, both as u gentleman and a
soldier, that, if you place my name
in your report as unfit for duty,
I will shoot you with my own hand."
The surgeon shrugged his shoul?
ders, shook Picton by the hand, and
Thu gallan^ General's name was
accordingly omitted amongst the
wounded; and as his wish had often
been expressed, that he might die
amidst the blaze of battle, he was
