While Sandy, quite sublime la pride,
His Excellency's 'kerchief tied.
Arrived at "Indies' jiarlor'' door,
There Hunker with n gentle roar,
And heroine, and Drum, also,
Stood ready, in with them to go.
And ladies, ladies.' filled the room,
A very wilderness of bloom,
Till of "the thirty," two or throe
Wore all who could "insidors" be.
The rest, witli many others, stood
In door, and passage, where they could ;
And even tiio Barrow window-places
Were piled, and piled, with pulling faces.

The Chairman of Committee rose,
And clapped his handkerchief to nose,
Then coughed a little cough, and spread
His right arm out, and bowed his head :

Supper was over, and cheerfulness pretty
much restored. Annie hnd been induced to
smile several times, for Edwin exerted himself
I to please, in order to divert her thoughts from
the prophecy of old Dame (Joldison. lie had?

lame haunted him far from pleasurably?lie
had, notwithstanding, related all the circum
stanccs of the ??fearful interview," with many
comical embellishments, to the party at table,
and affected to treat it so lightly that sweet
little Annie Bell began quite to look like her
self again, when she saw that everybody was
littpoaed to view it only as a romantic adven
ture, aud nothing more.
The blue wagon was packod?the donkeys
brayed?buggies wero rcsumod?horse* re
mounted?the bugle breathed forth the liquid,
I tender notes of
'? Home, rwoet home!''
and once more the party was in motion, ''Eddy"
in front, and who with "dear Eddy ' but Ann.ie,
I of course. After them caino the next courting
| couple?(nearly all the young folks were paire <1
i in Woodfield Hamlet)?Harry Lee and Eflto
S Bradley. llarry wouldn't change partners Ln
| the buggy, though some of the others had agreed
to do so. Harry was very well contented, and
I so was Effie, as her ringing laughter clearly do
I noted. After them came tho rest of tho beaux
and belles?some in bnggies, somo on horse
? back?galloping, trotting, pacing, and coming
! sideways; but nil as merry m youth and good
fare and light hearts could make them. Jolly
John Muddler, tho boat of the White House,
brought up the rear. Tho rattling blue wagon
wasn't as full as it had been, so the donkeys
I trotted along faster, and kicked up higher, as if
they knew it was tall fun for the girls and boys ;
nyc, they kicked up twice as high as they had
done in the uioruing, overy time old John hit
them a crack with an extravagant hickory stick
he had got purposely "for tbo fun ot the
thing," And every time he jerked the reins,
and hallooed Ilo-o-o o! like a professional jockey,
and "lay hack on 'em," as he called it, the
wags of donkeys, as they were, would prick up
their ears, and make believe to run away in
downright earnest; while old John would bawl
out, every now ahd then?
" Awful papers! awful papers! Go it, boots !
I'll never be able to stop 'cm?I know 1 won't;
they're off now !"
But they were not, and ho always eunld stop
them. If he would only wink to those donkeys,
ten chances to oue, they would understand hiut.
At this headlong speed it didn't take long to
arrive at the Ford of the Panther Blufl ; and
the two giant figures upon the top looked lonely
and grand by the soft eiFoct of the moon's light.
But another tiling than the sublimity of this
effect engaged the attention of the little pin 'y
at this moment. The violent rain had made
the ford all but impassable. The prediction oi
the Witch of Golding (Jorge Hashed instantly
ucross the mind of all the party; and one pro
posed to go back to the hamlet ol' Petersburg,
a few miles distant, and to return in the morn
ing. There was nothing young Berry shrunk
from so much as a suspicion?much less an
imputation-?of cowardice, and consequently,
when Harry Leo called out to him?
" 1 say, Ned, you'll go back for one, certain !
The Witch, you know, old fellow; the Witch ! i
Better not try the ford, 1 guess."
"l'shaw!" cried Berry, "I was goiny to]
cross, anyhow; but I'm bound to do it now, to
let you all see how much 1 carc for the old
"Never mind, Ned, boy; don't. think ol it!
don't try it! we don't doubt your courage, but
it's no use, wo can't get over?at least the girls
can't!" exclaimed another of the party.
"I go over, if I come back again, and return
to Petersburg with you then ! but I'm going to
try it now." He rode up to Annie, who sat
like a statue upon her horse, blanched white as
the lilies in her own li'tle garden, before the
door at home, with the apprehensions that
filled her mind, and the presentiment she l'elt
but feared to impart. She could only whisper
to him earnestly, when he was near enough :
" Pray, don't go, dearest Eddy ! For my sake
don't attempt the Ford !?1 tear "
And, burying her face iu her handkerchief,
she burst into tears.
"Poh! poll! Annie, child! don't bo afraid
on my account! 1 warrant 1 have gone across
as bad places before, in perfect safety, as this
bug-bear Ford of the Panther Bluff Why, look
up there at him iu the moonshine! he looks as
if he thought lie could clear it himself with
such a bound as that he seems prepared for !
Good-by, love," he addud tenderly, and stoop
ing over, unobserved by the rest, lie pressed
her lips, saying?
"Good-by, dearest! it'll not be very long
before you're by my side again! Good-by,
good-by !" and dashing the spurs into his steed,
he plunged into the boiling Hood. His horse
stumbled once or twice, but regained his foot
ing speedily again; though once he sank to the
thigh of his rider. The current was ao over
whelming, it was as much as the noble animal
could do to breast it; and he was kept with his
head up <he stream as much as practicable.

American* at tl?e Crystal Palace.
To the Editors of the. American Teleyrajih.
Gentlemen: 1 have observed lately in some
of the French journals?La J'resxe, Le Siecle,
// AseerubUe Nationale?a paragraph which may
serve to amuse, or to mortify, or to provoke an
American; according to his idiosyncrasy. I
first saw it in La 1'reste, Emile Girardin's
paper, where it appeared as an editorial, or
piusi-cditorial. The followiug is a translation :
" The most remarkable productions of the
? United States to be seen at the Universal 1.x
i 4 position at London are, beyond all contradic
' lion, Uie articles of perfumery exhibited by
'Jules llauel, of Philadelphia. This nrtizau
? excels in his line, and his articles cannot bo
' surpassed by any thing in it to be seen at the
' Exhibition."
1j Assemble improves upon this, and says
that Queen Victoria and I'rince Albert "ex
pressed their astonishment (out erprime Uur
rtounemrnt) at seeing tho perfumer's art car
ried to so high a degree of perfection by an
If all this is intended for praise by tho French
editors, they are bestowing upon an American
what belongs, judging from the name, to a com
patriot of their own, for Jules Haucl is clearly
Krencli, and nothing else. Besides, who ever
beard of nn American's excelling in the per
fumery line 1 I never did, and hope 1 never
shall. "Most willingly would I yield .the palm
to a Frenchman, or to anybody else, in tho
scicncc of sweet scent*, though sweet as

In that department I have to nay, qui meruit

Our fellow-countrymen appeared under great
disadvantages at the World's Fair. They arc
regarded as rivals of the old world, and known
to be formidable ones, too; and from this cause,
and some not yet entirely obliterated grudges
and antipathic* of lung njnt, they met at the
going ?Ji with no friendly greetings, and but
cold civility from the English press, which a'
first certainly eviuced a disposition to ridicule
and to undei rate the American contributions.
But as the Kxhibition progressed, a better and
much more amiable feeling began to manifest
itself, and, 1 most willingly believe, manifested
itself from a sentiment of justice and good-will.
The English journals?even tho ferocious
Time*?became first softened, then conciliated,
and, finally, openly laudatory. It is true that
the merit of many of the American articles could
not be overlooked by the British publio, and
was not, the journals to tho contrary notwith
standing. These, nevertheless, made the amende
honorable in good time, and so let us forget the
sneering and insolence that characterized some
of them at tho beginning ; tftough to tho Us:,
one?a London paper of world-wide circulation,
though in other respects pretty fair?makes i n
following absurd remarks, though coupled wi >
others that are not only just, but decidedly
friendly and flattering: " in H?s depsrtmeut ^
.Articles of Food-the ^menoans come out^ >
intri >duce the true system of preparing Hitches.
\ orkshiremen and Irishmen introduce the
true system! They Lave been emigrating to
tins country for two Jiuadml and thirty years;
and if tliey have not yet introduced it?for the
pig has been in plenty aJl the time?they must
be singularly awkward at imparting instruction
or we must be singularly slow to profit by it.
iv it, ,"'e,icttD exhibitors appeared at the
01 li s I air under great disadvantages, I say
again. At such exhibitions, articles of taste,
ot luxury, and of virtu, always attract short
attention, and 111 that fit-id we cannot be?I hope
wo never shall be?successful competitors of
old, corrupted, decaying communities that have
been manufacturing ouch articles for the last
two or threo thousand years. In the depart
ments in which we are the strongest and undo
niably ahead of the Europeans, and of all the
rest ot mankind, we cannot be, from the nature
of the thing, adequately represented at such an
exhibition. We cannot take to it our steam
boats, our railroads, our corn, wheat, and to
bacco-fields, our cotton and sugar plantations,
our commercial marine of three million tons
our common schools, our two thousand news
papers, or our social and political institutions ?
or any thing that is best calculated to show
how prosperous, how opulent, and how powerful
we are. And yet, nevertheless, towards the
winding up of the exhibition, the Americans
have, in many particulars, bentrn all competi
tors, all hollow. McCormock's reaping ma
chine, for instunce, which has been fully tested
in England, is acknowledged to bo wonderful,
and will probably receive tiie first medal given?
I mean the most complimentary one. The
American planing machine, American ploughs,
carriages, garden tools, sitting chairs, school
furniture, and India-rubber articles, are al
lowed to possess groat merit, and to be in many
respects superior to every thing else of the
kind. To which may be added, Newell's lock,
which is the only one in the world that cannot
bo picked, and as far excels Brahma's famous
loci; as that excelled all that preceded it.
Though iu haste, and disposed to bo brief, I
must fay a word about the American yacht,
America, which has outsailed all tho English
yachts, royal and all, running far ahead of
them and beating them one mile in eight, which
is indicative of unapproachable superiority.
And England, let me observe, is par exccUencr,
the yachting nation, which has for hundreds of
?years arrogated to herself pre-eminence in all
nautical matters. Three months ago John Bull
would much sooner have believed that the moon
is made of green cheese, than that a plain,
modest-looking Yankee craft was to walk over
the Atlantic and beat him on his own waters, in
his own harbors, i,n the very line which, of all
others, he believed himself to be first, tliero
being 110 second. This has made the old chap
look about him, and he begins to sec that there
is another nation as well as his own of whom it
may be said?
" Iter mareli is o'f r the mouuLun wore.'
As we contribute to other nation's fairs, and
do it at a disadvantage, why not get up a
World's Fair on our owu account, and invito
the other three or four quarters of the globe to
visit it and see, and bring their productions with
them if they choose? Here they will see some
thing more worth crossing the Atlantic to look
at than Koh-i-noor diamonds, Malachite tables
papier-mache articles, clocks that go a hundred
years without beipg wound up, and ten thousand
other very elegant and very useless trifles.
They will see our counfry. P.
A Persian Ambassador in England. Soma
j excitement among the fashionable and political
j circles iu England lias just been created by the
arrival in that country of an Ambassador from
I Persia, with a view to promote the arrangement
and settlement of commercial relations between
the two countries. The name which be rejoices
in is Shefiah Khan, and an interesting dcscrip
tiqp of the nppearuuee of this distinguished
stranger is thus given iu the latest London
" As an accredited ambassador direct from
the court of Teheran has never been known in
1 thi3 country, some considerable interest was
i excited in Southampton by tbe arrival of his
excoUeuoy. lie is a line, handsome man, about
j turty years of age. He wus dressed in the
costly and pictuiesquo costume worn by the
highest ranks in Persia. The sleeves and col
lar of his cloak were ornamented with gold em
broidery ; the clasp of his girdle wak studded
with diamonds, and a brilliant star was suspended
on his breast. He wore the high conical cap
| of the Persian country. Ho was accompa
nied by a dragoman and a servaut. An exten
sive suite accompanied him from l'ersia to Tur
key, nearly the whole of which lie took leave of
1 at Constantinople.
"The ambassador reached Constantinople by
way of Trebisond and the Dlack Sea. During
his voyage in the Euxine, he sat at table in the
saloon with the other passeugers, and was not
more particular in his diet than liberal Mussul
men usually are. He drank his tea out of a
glass tumbler, making it sweet and hot, without
milk or cream. He rigorously abstaiucd from
wines and spirituous liquors. He smoked much.
His manners on board during the voyage were
extremely gentlemanly, and lie is evidently a
man of education and refiueiueut. lie cannot
speak English. His secretary, and who acted
j as dragoman, is a true born Persian, and was
; educated in India. His excellency is a Mussul
1 man, belonging to tbe great Mohammedan sect
? ?'f Ali. lie is remarkably strict iu his religious
observances. Every evening, while on board
the Euxine, he prostrated himself, and said
prayers for about two hours. He had a num
ber of ornaments in his possession, adorned with
jowels and precious stones. One of these orna
ments contained an emerald as large as a small
plum. Most ol these bad been presented to him
by tht; Shah of Persia, to mark the favor and
' esteem of his sovereign."
