CliarleB Lam!) at Home.
I availed myself of Charles Lamb'a
friendly invitation August 5, 1834. On
reaching his cottage, -which stood back
from the road, (nearly opposite the
church,) between two houses -which
projected beyond it, and -was screened
by shrubs and trees, I found that he was
out taking his morning stroll. I was
admitted to a small, paneled, and agreeably
shaded parlor. The modest room
was hung round with engravings by
Hogarth in dark frames. Books and
magazines were scattered on the table
and on the old-fashioned window seat.
I chatted awhile with Miss Lamb a
meek, intelligent, very pleasant, but
rather deaf elderly lady, who told me
that her brother had been gratified by
parts of my poem, (' Emily de Wilton,")
and had read them to her. "Elia"
came in soon after a short, thin man.
His dress was black and he wore a
capacious coat, breeches, and gaiters,
and a white neck-handkerchief. His
dark and shaggy hair and eyebrows,
and heated face, and very piercing jet-black
eyes gave to his appearance a
singularly wild and striking expression.
The sketch of him in Eraser's Magazine
gives a true idea oi his dress and
figure, but his portraits fail to represent
adequately his remarkably "tine Titian
head full of dumb eloquence," as
described it. He grasped me cordially
by the hand, sat down, and taking
a bottle from a cupboard behind him,
mixed some rum and water. On another
occasion his sister objected to this operation,
and he refrained. Presently after
he said: "May I have a little drop
now? only a lecile drop." "No," said
she," "be a good boy." At last, however,
ho prevailed and took his nsiml
. draught. On each visit (that of August
o navmg oeen quiclcly succeeded by another)
I found that he required to be
drawn into conversation. He would
throw out a playful remark and then
pause a while. He spoke by fits and
starts, and had a slight impediment in
his utterance which made him, so to say,
grunt once or twice before he began a
sentence ; but his tones were loud and
rich, and once, when he read to me a
passage from a folio of Beaumont and
Fletcher (which his sister had brought
down to show me Coleridge's manuscript
remarks at the end of each play)
the deep pathos of his voice gave great
weight to the impression made by the
poetry. He would" jump up and slap
his sister playfully on the back, and a
roomy often parsed between
them on the old round table. There
was not that point in his conversation
wnicn we nnct in wiilmm Hone s. He
agreed with me that Moore's poetry was
like very rich plum cake very nice,
but too much of it at a time makes one
sick. He said that Byron had written
only one good-natured thing, and that
was the ' Vision of Judgment. " fMary,"
he added to Miss Lamb, "don't you
hate Byron?" "Yes, Charles," she
replied. "That's right," says ho.

Pepping the,,, Question.
The custom which reserves the right
of proposing to the stronger sex is not
so universal as many suppose. An
widow had by law a power of claiming
in marriage the brother of her deceased
husband, in which ewe, as the
privilege of the male wras transferred to
the temale, that of the female was likewise
transferred to- the male. He had
the power of refusing ; the refusal, however,
was attended by some mortifying
circumstances; the woman whorn he
had thus sligLtedwas to come unto him
in the august presence of the elders of
the city, and to looso the shoo from his
foot and spit in his face. A custom
somewhat similar to this remains at
present among some of the Indian tribes.
"When the wife dies the husband is
obliged to marry the sister, or in her
stead the woman whom the family of
the deceased wife shall chooseior him.
In the state of New Granada the right
of asking is promiscuously exercised by
both sexes, who, wheu thoy feel the
passion of love, declare it without the
least embarrassment; and among the
Cossacks the same tiling is said to be
carried on still further, and the women
more generally court than the men.
"When a young lady falls in love with a
man, she is not in the least ashamed to
go to his father's house and reveal her
Xmssion in the most pathetic manner,
and promise submissive obedience if he
will accept her for a wife. Should the
man pretend any excti3e, she tells him
she is resolved never to go out of the
house till he gives his consent ; and accordingly
takes up her lodging there.
If he obstiuately refuses her, his case
becomes exceedingly distressing; the
church is commonly on her side, and to
turn her out would provoke all her kindred
to revenge her honor ; so he yields
As the two sexes in Greece had but,
little intercourse with each other, and" a ,
lover was seldom favored with an opportunity
of telling his passion to hi mistress,
ho used to deck the door of the
house where his fair one lived with flowers
and garlands; to make libations of
wine before it, in the manner that was
practiced at the temple of Cupid. When
a love aflair did not xn'otper in the hand
of a Greek, he did not endeavor to be- .
i?oine more engaging in his manner and
Xerson; he did not lavish fortune in
presents, or become assiduousun his attentions,
but immediately ho had recourse
to incantation x'hilters in
and dispensing of which the
women of Thessaly were reckoned with
the most famous. These iDotions were
given by the women to the men, as well
as by the men to the women, and were
generally so violent in their oxerations
as for some time to deprive the xerson
who took them of sense, and not uncommonly
A country woman presents nerself in
a photograxhic studio. "I have come,
sir, to have a picture of my poor dear
husband made. He he died three
months ago!" MVery well, my good
woman, very well. Have you any portrait
or daguerreotype, or anything of
the loved and lost?" "N no, sir, but"
bursting into tears " I have brought

"Poon little thing," said Mrs. Shuttle.
