Charleston, Aug. 7,1873,
Large and fine'
With a very thin rind,
Just picked from the vine,
Bark a lingo,
bny any Water-melon.?"
' So sang in dayB of yore tho good old
melon vender in the streets of the
"City by the seah, and, though long
years havo passed?years fraught with
such hardships, privations and mis
ery, as to make them appear a. century
we never partake of tho luscious fruit
without these early reminiscences recur
ring to our mind, and producing that
pleasant yet painful sensation, which
the rcmcmbrauco of days that aro passed
always brings. Tho melon seller of
ancient times, was an institution peculiar
to Charleston, met with porhaps in no
other city on this Continent, generally a
strong athletic darkey, having tho un
mistakable appearance (wo had almost
said "odor") of the "Sea Islands" about
him, and carrying on his head a largo
baskot of tho melons grown on our sea
coast, ho would wander about tho street
reciting in a voico oft-times of romarKa
blo sweetness and power, the praises of
his fruit, in a species of impromptu dog
gerel verso which was occasionally witty,
and always amusing. If his geuoral ap
pearance was dull, and led tho observer
to imagino' him easily "taken in," in
mutters ap pertaining to his trade, tho
mistake would soon bo discovered by
watching the close bargains driven by tho
melon man" with tho different house-wives
along his line of march, and it would bo
spcedily*ascertained that there was noth
ing" green" about him but his fruit, and
that in the rise and fall of tho melon
market, our. "ante bellum friend" was
as export as a Now York broker in tho
rise and decline of the money markot.
The glory of his trado has departed, but
thanks to our genial climate and soil, tho
ii?ii still exisis :iovor green," gladdening
tho eyef, and refreshing tho body duriug
tho hot and sultry days of summer. Tho
growth of the melon is wonderful, from
tho sizn of an applo, it suddenly and
imperceptibly springs iuto a huge cyliu.
drical mass weighing on an averago from
15 to 50 lbs. No man over satisfied
hunger with a melon, although its powers
of expansion aro so groat, that ono is al
most deluded into such a belief. We
?-?^red that tho immortal
"Squeers" of Mr. Dickens, dulnot pre
scribe for the" ferocioue appetite of iris
boys, a doso of watcr-niclou, how thoso
famish cd infant would have bolted, seeds
and all, and perhaps, found an amount
of nourishment in the former certainly
not obtainable in tdio pulp and ilice.

A SN/3DGRASS. .
Referring to Queen " Victoria, tho
Times of this city remarks that as &?
royal matchmaker she is a conspicuous
success. She has just completed tho ne
gotiations for the marriage of her second'
aon. Prince. Alfrod. to Marie Alexandra,,
daughter of tho Czar, and it is already
announced that, she is about to make*
matrimonial provision for Prince Arthur;
tho young gentleman is to be "packed ofl^
to Copenhagen and ordered to pop the1
question to Princess Tbyra. This young ?
lady is a sister of the Princcs3 of Wales,,
and also of the wife of tho czarowitch, the
future empress of Russin. Hor brother
is King George, of Greece, but it must
be admitted that ehe has no particular ?
reason to be proud of him. One advan-'
tage of the selection of Thyra as a bride
for Arthur is tk%? it will save Tennyson '
tho trouble of writing an ode for the oo-*
ension' as they can use tho one written
for the marriage of Albert and Aloxan
dra, with tho musical refrain : "For Sax- -
on and Norman and Dane are we, But
all of us Danes in our- welcome of thee/'
The cable, recently, brought news of
tho death of two eminent men in Eng
land?one a leading member of tho Brit
ish bar, and tho other of the pulphV? -
The first was Sir Kichard Bethel, (Lord^
Westbury) one of the first judges in the
realm, wl'.o occupied a place in the freut,
rank of those known as law roforggnj&j
iu X?Oii, no was mtulo i?-ioteitu'r-General,.
and in 1856 was promoted to tho oilico
of Attorney-General, and,- in 1861, ho
was .elevated to the Wool-sack, with the
Baronetcy of Westbury as an additional
favor, from the crown. His ago was 73.
The other celebrity was Samuel Wilbor
force, a son of tho celebrated William, .
who was thrown, from his horse and in
stantly killed. Ho graduated at Oxford.;
in 1829, and*arose steadily in church rank -
until ho became Bishop of Oxford, and,
finally, Bishop of* Winchester. He ia
hest known in this countTy as the author *
of a vory valuable" History of tho Epis
copal Church in Amorica," published in
1844. He was 58 years of age.

The vicissitudes of fortune havo been ?
singularly illustrated inilic life of Court -
Andrassy, the Austrain Premior. Hisr
path has been anything but one of roses...
At one time he was sentenced to death i.
for treason, then ho was banished from y
tho country, and during his exile in Lon* ?
don he supported himself by giving lea- -
sons on tho guitar. So poor was ho that
more than oiicc ho had to walk the parks .
at night because unable* to pay for a lod^* -
ging. After having known what it was -
to suffer hungor and to do without shel- ?
ter at night, ho has finally come to be ?
tho Prime Minister of a great empire.
"Why is it that so many mon are ?
