. Frederic the Great.
Frederic's character is a strane study
in human nature. He was f- n sat
irized; but be never fell into fv hands
of a satiriit who would make the most
of him, To an epigrammatic writer like
Pope he would have been invaluable.
The inconsistencies and contrasts in his
nature are grotesque and puzzling.
The real truth we suspect to have been
that Frederic's whole nature was dis
torted and corrupted by the treatment
of his youth. As a boy he was "one
of the prettiest and vividest little boys;
as he irrew ud he evinced an open.
generous and affectionate nature. But
a love of literature and music, and a
distaste for constant dnii, excitea his
father's wrath. To what leiit'ti;. that
wrath reached public blows, imprison
ment, murder of his son's friend, almost
the murder ot the son lumselt, is wen
known. No mortal could pass through
such an ordeal unscathed. None but
rarely beautiful natures can come out of
an unhappy home otherwise than hurt or
marred, r redenck s home was more than
usually nnbappy, and the results of this
were not trifling. Want of sympathy
made bim reserved; cruelty made him
hard-hearted ; stern repression mads his
nature break out into low practical joking.
So far a we can now judge, he was nat
urally tho very reverse of irreligious, and
indeed he early showed a disposition
toward serious thought. But his father
stormed at him as a Calvinist and a pre
destinarian; forced him on pain of dwtith
to relinquish those damnable heresies ;
and ended, as might have been anticipa
ted, in making him a believer in nothing.
Again paternal love sought to exert itself
in arranging a marriage lor the prince,
and yielding to the suggestions of cour
tiers in Austrian pay, paternal love forced
upon Frederic a wife whom he detested,
aud whom be hardly ever saw, condemn
ug him to a life of loneliness, without
the affection of a woman, or the hope of
posterity. Worst ot all was that tear
taught deceit, the only protection of the
weak. From that sad day on which Katie
was led to death before his eyes, Frede
ric " shrouded himself in a polite cloak
of darkness," to nse Mr. Carlyle't ele
gant euphemism for a system of hy
pocrisy. It is painful to read of the
crown prince kissing his father's dirty
gaiters ; but he had to stoop yet lower.
His proud heart must have suffered a
bitter pang before be endured to write in
terms of fawning affection to such a crea
ture as Crumkow, the most contemptible
of the knot of traitors and toadies who,
under the intellectual reign of Mr. Car
lyle's first hero, ruled the destinies of
rrussia. The cloak ot darkness, which
then seemed to stand him in good stead,
was never through life thrown aside.
Altogether apart from his faithfulness to
his engagements, Frederic's attempt to
deceive, or, in siaog phraseology, to
" humbug" his adversaries, were often so
barefaced as to be quite ludicrous. Thus,
at the very time when his armies were
occupying the whole of Silesia, except a
few furtitied towns, he had the effrontery
to write to tbe Duke of Loraine, "Mv
heart has no share in the mischief which
my hand is doing to your court"
Curiously enough, the domestic vices
generally reappear in those who have
suffered from them. Frederic had many
of the faults of his father, only in a less
degree. But they do not seem to have
been his naturally; he acquired them
from the teaching of example. By nature
frank, generous, affectioniij; cruel usage
made him deceitful, harsh, unfeeling, im
placable. "He is as hard, 'said Voltaire
of him; as Churchill said of James II,
be it at hard as that marble table." In
some points he greatly improved and
softened at he grew older; he grew more
tolerant, more patient, uore moderate.
It would have been an otmctive study
to mark how many of hi i greatest faults
were derived from a corrupting educa
tion, and how many of tieae faults age
and experience removed. An extrava
cant afiectioo for the lower animals has
often been found in mei who cared very
little for their tellow creatures, i redenc
was a noble example of this. He had
always soma half dotes Italian grey
hounds in the room with him: one the
especial favorite, the rfst he kept to af
ford the favorite tbe ph-aiure of society.
To one of these called Alemena, he was

so attached that at her death he was
quite overpowered with grief, and insisted
on keeping her corpse in his room long
after it had become putrid. logs cost
him less, he used to soy, and were much
more attached and faithful than a Mar
quise de Pompadour. A footman was
appointed to the Jiunor of attending on
them, and a carriage was appropriated
to their use, in which they rent out for
their airinjr, always occupying the hind
seat They were all buried on the ter
race at Sans Souci, and in his will he
left directions that he should be interred
Assuredly Frederic possessed, if ever
man did, fortitude " the virtue of ad
versity," the most heroic of all virtues.
The full force of his character was never
shown till among the dangers and sor
rows of a seven years' war. He bore up
against overwhelming calamities, and
triumphed over them, and established
himself in security. Few men ever
sought less their happiness and ease,
ever worked harder in their vocation.
He discharged, with calm endur
ance, the multifarious labors of
self-imposed toil, unrheered by hope,
urged on by no sense of fear, but ever
loyal to his sense of duty. "The night
cometh when no man can work." As the
night drew near, his weariness grew more
intense, his loneliness yet deeper. One
by one the companions of his prime, to
ward a few of whom be felt as much affec
tion as his irou nature was capable of
feeling, had fallen from his side ; he hud
no love for any of bis own fumily who then
survived, save, perhaps, the Princess
Amelia, and in her pitiable state she
could only be to him an additional cause
of sorrow: throuch life he had never
songht affection, so now the solace of
affection could not be bis; trienaiess ana
hopeless he met with serene courage the
inevitable end. It is a picture from
which we cannot withhold our reverence,
but which fails to command our love.
North British Jieviett.
A Eeminiscence of the Kearsnrge and
A writer in the Cornhill Magazine,
who has had opportunities of observa
tion with some of Scmmes' old crew,
gives the following interesting reminis
cence of the fight between the Alabama
and the Kearsarge, from which it ap
pears that the rebels were left to drown
when the pirate sunk:
"I thought you had been in the Con
federate navy ?" "I was," said Aleck;
" I was with Semmes everywhere he went.
I was in the navul brigade and blockade-
running, and on the Alabama all tne
while he commanded her." " But not
when she saak. I suppose, I rejoined.
"Well. I was. and wus picked up with
him bv the Deerhound." "It was a
nrettv sIihid Cifht. wasn't it?" I suggest
ingiy asked. " It was that," replied
Alpck: but he didt? t care about enliirg'
ing. "I suppose it was the 11-inch shells
that did her business?" " Oh, no," said
he. rnmini? to a kind of confessional,
" we never had any chance; we had no
., . , T-
gunners to compare witn tne iearsarge a.
Our gunners fired by routine, and when
thev had the eun loaded, fired it off blind.
They never chanced the clevatiox of
their guns all the ngnt, anu tne ivear
sargo was working up t us all the while,
taking advantage of every tirup she was
hid by smoke to work a little nearer, and
then her gunners took aim for every
shot" "Then it isn't true that the Ala
bama tried to board the Kearsarge ?"
"No, sir; she did her best to get away
from her from the time the light com
menced. We knew well that if we got in
range of her Dahlgren howitzers 'she
would sink us in ten minutes."
"But," I asked, don't you believe that
Semmes supposed he would whip the
Kearsarge when he went out to fight
her?" "No; he was bullied into it, and
took good care to leave all his valuables
on shore, and had a life-preserver on
through the fight I saw him put it on,
and I thought if it was wise in him it
wouldn't be foolish in me, and I put one
on too. When Semmes saw that the
ship was going down, he told all to
swim who could, and I was one of the first
to jump into tbe water, and we all made
for the Deerhound. I was a long way
ahead of Semmes, and when I came up
to the Deerhound't boat, tbey asked me
if I was Semmes, before they would take
me in. I said I wasn't, and then they
asked me what I was on the Alabama.
Said I, ' No matter what I was on the
Alabama, I shall be a dead man soon if
you don't take me in. They asked me
again if I was an officer or a seaman,
and wouldn't take me in until 1 told
them that I was an officer." " But, said
I, "did they actually refuse to pick up
common seamen and leave them to
drown?" "They did that," replied he,
wrathfully, and probably not very correct
ly, " and as soon as they had Semmes on
board they made tracks as fast as they
knew how, and left everybody else to
drewn or be picked up by the Kear
sarge." A Scene in the Committoe of Reconstruc
tion. A few days since the Committee from

at to bis interview with Mr Lincoln, in
April, 18C1, and answered as follows:
That he had a private interview with Mr.
Lincoln, and that they had talked freely
concerning the state of the country. Mr.
Lincoln asked why the Virginia Conven
tion did not adjourn. His reply was that
although there was a Union majority in
the Convention, they would not adjourn
while ignorant of the plan for the adjust
ment of our National difficulties. He
hud also said that if ho had Mr. Lincoln's
power he could settle the disaffection in
fifteen minutes by withdrawing the troops
from Sumter and Pickens, and by calling
a convention of all the States. Mr. Lin
coln had replied that he would do this.
Mr. Howard said that he felt certain
that Mr. Lincoln bad never promised to
withdraw the troops from Sumter, at an
inducement to the Virginia Convention
to adjourn, for he would 'have been swept
from his seat by the indignant people of
Mr. Baldwin replied that hit memory
was good, and such was his impression;
but as he was aJone with Mr. Lincoln on
that occasion, and there was no one now
to rebut his testimony, he would not give
it as any thing more than an impression
left ii Don his mind.
Proceeding!, although formal, were
marked by good temper and cordiality.
Details of Foreign News.
New York, February 2. Tbe details
of the news in foreign files show that in
England the Shenandoah claims were
being discussed in a considerably altered
tone since the publication of Mr. Seward's
IttBt published dispatch on the question.
The London Times now speaks of British
officers "winking at transparent frauds,"
"allowing British laws to be cheated in
a manner that demands inquiry." It al
ludes to Australian authorities permit-
tine a crave breach of hospitality, and
recommends that the foreign enlistment
act should be at once amended.
The Paris correspondent of the London
77m et. writine on the 12th, treats at
length on the speech of Marshal Forey,
and thinks the signs are not favorable to
n aneedv recall of the troops from Mexico.
The correspondent expresses his belief
that the sentiments wbicb Jiarsuai r orey
uttered are not very different from those
of the Emperor, though he declared that
he only spoke for himself.
Letters from the East Indies represent
the cotton trade as greatlhr increased
during the American war. The shipment
for five months alone during last year
over the Great Indian Peninsula railway,
amounted to 210,000 bales, three timet
the amount for the same period in the
How Different Nations Eat.
Th M,lilAvinn Islanders eat alone.
They retire into the most hinder parts of
their houses, and then draw oown loo
cloths that serve as blinds to their win
dows, that they may eat unobserved, un
the contrary, the Islanders of the Phil
lipines are remarkably sociable. When
ever one of them finds himself without
a companion to partake of his meal, he
runs till he meets with one ; and however
keen his appetite may be, he ventures
not to satisfy it without a guest. The
tables of the rich Chinese shine with
beautiful varuisb, and are covered with
Bilk carpets very elegntly worked. They
do not make use of plutes, knives and
forks ; every guest is furnished with two
little ivory or ebony sticks, which he
handles very adroitly. A Kamschutkan
kneels before his gne st, cuts an enormous
slice from a sea-calf, and crams it into
the mouth of his friend, furiously crying
out, "Tapa" ("there,") and cutting away
whut hangs about his tips, snatches and
devours it with avidity.
Cam to Grief.
A young man in Bristol, Eng., was
charged with stealing articles belonging
to a mariner whose wife had been taken
with the articles. Tbe latter became her
paramour's apologist. "Her young
friend," she said, who was formerly her
employer, "bnd been seeking piety, and
was on the road to amendment, although
he had not quite given up his evil ways.
She took him to chapel, and to class, and
prayer meetings, and urged him to re
pent ; and, as a closing effort, her hus
band being a very bad and cruel man,
she took the young innocent away, in
order to convert him more thoroughly.
They had lived together for six weeks,
during which time she taught him how to
seek the truth."
The London correspondent of the New
York Tribune says that Charles Dickens
is on the Bhort side of middle hight, his
hair and benrd almost or quite gray, the
latter worn after the French or American
fashion, with shaveH cheeks; the former
brought forward and elaborately oiled.
His eyes are dark, handsome, and viva
cious," the lines below aud about them
deeply defined; the eyebrows appear
thick and arched to semicircularity. His
nose is of no particular recognized or
der, odd and full at the nostrils, the hu
morous line running from them to tbe
corners of the mouth very marked aud
noticeable. His complexion is not very
clear, and reddish about the rather sun
ken cheeks. He dresses in good taste,
quietly, with dainty lines.
