by its examples. " Behold how we relieve the
p?iiiis and evils at our own door," she might

that there is in the character and, of course, in
the conduot of the British nation. No one can
be more desirous to see the two great families
of the Anglo-Saxon race united in the most
friendly manner, and in every good word and
work, than ourselves. But with this desire
there is nothing inconsistent in our occasion
ally reminding them, in a friendly manner, of
their errors, and calling upon them with earn
estness to reform them. So shail their light
effectively shine. So shall the vast and boasted
wealth of Great Britain be applied to remove
many afflictions under which her own people
now labor, and to diffuse through the world a
spirit of true benevolence.
Some years since Louis Philippe visited
Queen \ ictoria. On that occasion thero were
great displays of wealth?great pomp and cir
j cumstance of entertainment. A writer, whose
attention was drawn to the state of Great
Britain at that juncture, penned an article
which was published extensively at tho time,
and which wo purpose now to republish, with
some brief comments.
Extremes of Splendor and op Misery.
? "Take phjulc, ix>mp;
Kxpose thyMsIf to fee 1 h Iiht wretches feel;
J hut thou lUhypt shake the superllux to them,
Anci mow trio heavens more just."
In a country calling itself free, and England
pretends to be a free country, wealth should not
be possessed in such excesses and disparities.
Contrast the enormous splendors of a fete at
Windsor with some official reports respect
ing the state of the poor. Here is the descrip
tion of the Queen's dinner to the King of the
French :
"Hie long table on which the dinner was
served was covered with magnificent candelabra,
epergnes, placed alternately ? several of the
former of a circular form, being filled with arti
ficial flowers. A row of candelabra with wax i
lights were placed on each side, and beyond
those, at both sides of the table, were numerous j
vases, wine-coolers, and dishes of the most ele
gant forms and designs. At each end of the
hall vie re elevated sideboards of equal dimen
sions, containing a choice selection from the
numerous and valuable articles of plato in the
ltoyal treasury, remarkable for their excel
lence of workmanship, antiquity, or historical
interest. Flaxman'.s celebrated 'Shield of
Achilles, ''Iho Armada Urn,' and some ancient
sconces were displayed on the west sideboard:
and a large shield sculptured in rich relief with
the representation of a battle, and tho ' Neptune
Lpergne richly embellished with marine em
blems, and surmounted with a statue of the
marine deity, were on the cast, sideboard. Nu
merous tankards, vases, shields, and bulb cups,
richly chased, were tastefully arranged on a
background of crimson, and were very bril
'iantly illuminated with candelabra and sconces
of silver and gilt, bearing wax-lights. The Prin
cess of Wales's epergne, crowned with his Roy
al Highness's plume, was placed at this part of
the table, between two other epergnes of great
beauty, sculptured in gold at the base, with
' dancing fauns these epergnes had on either I
side the ' Ilesperides' candelabra."
There is something ridiculous in the extreme i
in exposing the baby Frinocof Wales's feather in
an epergne, on a dinner table; and having looked
at the one case, let us advert to somo others
In the sanatory report made by the Secretary ,
of the Poor Law Commissioners, one of the in- |
vestigators into the condition of the poor says ,
that, in the counties of England, 24,677 per
sons have died in one year, in houses that want
ed draining and roofing. Those who died from
other causes make the whole obituary amount
to 216,399 persons in one year. One would
suppose that this alone would be sufficient to j
thin tho population.
A nation which undertakes the task of reform- !
ing materially the institutions of others should
be able, with truth, to point to its own as ex
hibiting practical results favorable to human
happiness. That is, in general, the true inten
tion'of good government. The material felicity
of the few is not the question?but what are the
effects on the many ? If in her institutions, or
the administration of them as organized?the
retulta pictured htlojc?Great Britain finds the
true results of her system, or of it? mal-admin
istration, she should reform the one or the i
other before pouring forth her torrents of invec
tive eloquence against the United States. "Thou
that teachest another, dost thou not tcach thy
self?" It is vain for England to talk about the
evils of slavery in the United States, when such
practical slavery as that felt and described be
low takea place under her government?not
io India, the Cape of Good Hope, or Australia,
| but at home, where they boast, vainly boast,
J while such scenes as these occur, that no slave
can exist.
" In England and Wales the deaths in 1833
were 282,1)40, excluding deaths by violence, by
j suicide, or other causes, which the Parliament -
| ary and parish papers do not upecify. In 1833
the deaths amounted to twenty-one per thou
sand. Most of them had taken place in
swampy and unwholesome localities. Mr. Gil
bert, one of the l'oor Law inquirers, stated
that lie found the open drains and sewers had
been the cause of malaria, and consequently
j of death. In this rich and beautiful country
i the poor often live in mud cottages, witli little
| or no roof, and with floors of absolute mud.
" A Mr. Fox, a medical officer, says that the
I poor were badly fed, badly clothed, and conse
quently dirty. 4 T have,' he remarks, ' often
seen the spring bursting through the mud
floors of some of the cottuges, and little chan
nels cut from the centres, under the doorways,
to carry off the water whilst the door has been
removed from its hinges for the children to put
their feet on in making buttons.' The local
gentry and parochial authorities ought to in
terfere in these cases, which very sensibly and
quickly take so many of the poor oft" our hands.
In one cottage, consisting of only one room
measuring eighteen feet by ton and a half feet
high, one-third was partitioned off by rougli
boards, and in this small space were three beds,
p.tid six persons sleeping in them, and the con
sequence was that typhus fever did its work,
relieving the parish of all further expense than
that of paying for their funerals. In a family
of six persons, taken with the fatal disease of
typhus, the doctor found the mud floor of this
cottage was at least one foot below the lane. It
consisted of but one room, the ladder in the
middle leading to a platform where the patient
slept, and from this platform a, boy, in a fit of
delirium, threw himself on the ground and was
" The report says, that the cottages in which
the typhus fever broke out in Flitwick, and to
which the dreadful disease was exclusively con
fined, were of the most wretched description.
Of course neither the Queen nor her husband,
or their children, run any risk of catching typua
fever in the spacious, well-ventilated rooms of
Windsor Castle, but the villages do not escape
this terrible malady. Iu such towns ns Staf
ford, for instance, the poverty and filth of the
cottages are described almost beyond credibility,
and diseases ensue from these causes. The
very splendid entertainments given to the Kin;;
of the French cost more than would be required
for benefiting a vast number of small towns,
which are every year tho foci of fever. In one
case five sisters were attacked with fever, from
malaria arising from an uncovered drain, an i
they all died. In Liverpool, from thirty-five to
forty thousand persons live in cellars, always
damp and low, generally uupaved, and devoid
of sewers or drainage. Throughout Northum
berland the case is the same. The cottages
are most wretched, and it does not seem that
the local gentry have done much, or any thing,
to remedy the evil. In one town the people were
discovered to be in such wretchedness that thir
ty-five thousand persons were supplied with
beds and bedding by voluntary subscription.
Tho sufferings of tho unfed, and almost un
clothed poor in winter nights, for want of bed
ding, must be excessive.
" In Manchester, with all its wealth, nine
thousand one hundred and seventy-nine fnmi
liet arc living in cellars, and some of these ot
I the worst description possible?worse than the
| dust holes and coal ccllars of London houses.
These people are not only the sufferers from all
the evils of cellars undrained, without floors,
and nearly dark, but they are built below the
level of the river; and the wretched inhabit
ants, on an extraordinarily high tide, nro
aroused from their sleep, and are obliged to fly
for their lives. Such is the state of this rich
and happy kingdom. The Queen, in showing
her guest the magnificence of Windsor Castle
and Buckingham 1'alacc, and of the adjacent
neighborhood, should have let him see the other
side of the picture, so that he might go back to
. France with a fair impression of tho general
i condition of all classes; but liu must otherwise
| think that England is tho El Dorado of the
: world, surpassing in splendor even what is de
scribed in fairy tales, where all is composed of
1 gold, diamonds, pearls, and precious stones,
I worked in the most fanciful forms. Manches
ter and Salford, with their immediate vicinities,
are superintended by bodies of missionaries.
One of theso missionaries reports that he had
met with many who had not a meal in two days.
Another missionary states the case of an ex
hausted man who, getting a day's labor, was so
overworked that, on reaching his wife and fami
ly, he fell, apparently dead. How the poor
can go so long without food or firing must as
tonish all persons. The contrast-between fami
lies living in wet cellars, always without fuel,
and often without food, must be incredible to
those who enjoy only the gorgeous splendors of
euch a palace ss Windsor Castle. There must
always be a sad discrepancy between the rich
and the poor, but the difference ought not to be
increased artificially, as it is in the case of tho
Queen. Now that every newspaper makes n
great boast of the wonderful wealth displayed
before the French visiters, they might as well
look on the other side, and as winter ap
proaches, and its commencement is rather se
vere, benevolence might avoid splendors, and
give all that it can spare to the relief of the
The Law triumphant i* California.?
Nothing is more pleasing, in the late news
from California, than the announcement that
the Committee of Vigilance has abandoned its
usurped powers, and that the law is once more
triumphant. Instead of acting, as heretofore,
independently of the courts, the members ot the
Committee now act in unison with them. This
was the line of conduct that the more influential
journals in the Atlant ic states recommended, and
we have no doubt that their advice has had
more or less influence in producing this change.
Tho Californians naturally regard, with con
siderable deterence. the opinions of the older
sections of tho United Stutes, from which tho
bulk of them have emigrated; and tho very de
cided reprehension with which tho .Sau Francisco
lynchings were received here, inur.t have stHg
gered the original convictions oftheCoi imitt.ee,
that those outrages were justified by necessity.

On tho shores of the l'otomac, in the midst
of as wild and beautiful scenery as any river
j in tho world can boast?under the meanest
pile of slate stone, mud, and straw, that ever
went by the name of cabin?has lived for tho
last ninety years, and still lives, perfectly alone,
and without any change in her appearance for
a half century at least, the Witch of Golding
Golding Gorge is a narrow split in the solid
rock of a stupendous mouutain, near the north
fork of the Potomac, in Virginia, through
which the frothy stream dashes itself with *
roar that is audible for miles around. The
perpendicular sides of this opening rise to the
J height of over fifteen hundred feet; and on
one side an immense bluff, still higher, topples
over the torrent, whose shock, as it leaps wild
ly over frequent barriers, rocks it hither and
thither like a plaything. But the Witch of
Golding Gorge never seems to hear the din
that appals the passing traveller; and her ad
venturous steps often intrude into the very
mouth of the yawning gulf itself, where she
penetrates after herbs, with which she affects
to work her charms, until the dashing spray
warns lier of her peril, lie fore the day breaks,
this, her only out-door occupation, is accom
plished; and duriDg tho rest of her time
nothing more is seen or known of her than of
the mysteries of Seneca Chasm adjacent. Few
of the simple country folk, who spoke in whis
pers of her and her doings, had ever seen her,
even at her occupation on the fearful ledges;
and those who had, were so frightened that
they dared not look ngain; and such descrip
tious of her were given as made Golding
Gorge aud Seneca Chasm shunned by the
whole countryside.
And as for the Fire Cliff?a perpendicular
ridge of slate and sandstone towers more than
a thousand feet high?they would die of fear,
were they compelled to approach within five
miles of it! Whenever they saw the mountaiu,
of which it is a part, on fire, great would be
the trembling, and many the inward prayers of
the superstitious, who would whisper in a low
tone, as if afraid she might overhear them,
"Lord preserve us! tho Witch of Golding
Gorge is sacrificing to the Devil!"

Twenty miles from Golding Gorge is tho plea
sant hamlet of Moorfield. Every family in it
is united as one ; and there may be seen Buch
simplicity of manners and heart prevailing an
the pure-minded would obserws with rapture.
Even the Presidential campaign fails to uivide
them longer than a day in opinion, and no affair
for a moment, in affectibn.
.Moorfield has one only Inn, and I dare swear
as honest and jolly a host as can be found any
where. Fond of good eating, fond of g?od
drinking, and ohewing, and smoking, and joking;
and always providing the beat of each and ail.
