[From the New York Weekly Tribune.] The Sabbath Bell. BY CHARLKS B. CAPV. Sitting at my window, now Comes the music stealing soft, As above yon hillock's brow Float the Sabbath-chimes aloft. Often, in my younger year, When the evening shadows fell, llow I lingered long, to hear Holy voice of Sabbath Bell. I have stood in sorrow there By that grave to me so dear,? Where no passing eye could stare, And no passing foot was near; While upon the gale would rite. Sweeping geaitly down the dell, Music springing to the Vroiu that eveulng Sabbath Bell. Strange it Is, that Mumc'h f oice, Speaking on the Sabbath eve, Will the sinking soul rejoice And the laden heart relieve. Oh, an influence by that tone, More than mortal tongue cun tell, Is upon tho spirit thrown By ibe voico of Sabbath Bell! On our bosom's lonely strand, When life's billows cease to play, And, unto the Spirit-Land, Voices call our hearts away; And tho parting Spirit's smile Is its truest, purest knell,? Who will say that car, the while, Hears no angel Sabbath Belli East Schuvlek. [Communicated.] Wasted?One hundred accomplished rowdies to perfect our young city larks in street educa tion. The pupils are many of them apt and advanced scholars, and will requiro but little more training to elevate them above loaferism and graduate them as rowdies. Our city is going ahead with magnificent strides; and in order to keep up with other im provements, these teachers Bhould be at the top of their profession. They must be competent to take the lead in drinking raw whisky, swear ing. fighting, smoking three-cent cigars, out late o' nights, talking ribaldry at street-corners, (especially to ladies,) playing ball and shooting on Sundays, firing carpenters' shops, picking pockets, and kicking up a fuss generally and at short notice. It is not expected all of them will be expert in every branch. Division of labor is profitable, and a sign of civilisation. A few genteel ones will labor among "birds of a feather;" a sprin- | kling of darkeys can operate to advantage around oyster-shops; but the large majority should be ragged and mud-colored.

Cheap Living.?A gentleman in England, who spent some time in this country, lately wrote to a frieud in Yorkshire, giving his opin ion of matters and things in general, lie ad mit* the peoplo of the United Stutes to be a very decent, nice set of fellows, and speaks pai - ticularly of our hotels and steamboats as sur passing those of England in general arrange ment and prolusion of good food. Contrasting the prices of living In the two capitals, London and Washington, he says: "If the mode of serviug up, and the variety of wholesome dishes are taken into considera tion, then, the living in the metropolis of the United States is far cheaper than it is in any town of magnitude, or oven village, in England. I spent the latter part of the summer of 184J in Washington, which I found rather dull, but the living was quite as good as any Englishman need desire, and at prices that surprised me. For instance, I bad quite a large airy room, very oomfortably furnished and kept iu order, for eight dollars per month, less than two pounds sterling. I took my meals at Copp'fl Pavillion, a very largo and spacious building, located in the most central part of the city, for which I was charged fifteen and mnepence a week, about three dollars and a half of their money. It is true that there were neither gold nor silver plate, nor costly china, but otherwise the table was as well furnished as any hotel in London. . . "Everyday we had a delicious soup, (not un frequently calf's head and green turtle,) with % fish called by the natives sheepshead, quite squul to our turbot, with roast beef, mutton, ind veal, as good as any I have eaten at home, fnot excepting the famed southdown mutton ;) and, in addition, there were various dishes or dessert, fruits, &c., and everything scrupu lously clean and neat, a matter not always met with where they have black slaves, requiring the constant eye of the master or mistress. 1 know 1 could not have as good a table in Lon don for five pounds a week. Theonlydraw baek is, that you are compelled to sit witn thirty or forty persons, who, though usually gentlemanly in their demeanor, and very atten tive, yet despatch their luxurious dinners with a rapidity quite unworthy of rational beings .bo W for eojoymeut.

I believe that it is this promiscuous mixing together that renders them so polite to each other and ho uniformly courteous to strangers. Washing ton, though young, boasts of many bwutiful buildings, numerous churches, and as tels as any in the world." An American Demonstration in London.? The Americans the present industrial year have distinguished themselves in a variety of wa ,8 iu the eyes of the mother country; and in honor of the American gentlemen who were <connected with the exhibition in the Crystal Palace Mr. George Peabody, the princely banker of Lon don, gave, on the 27th of October, a parting dinner by way of patriotic celebration. Speeches were made by Mr. Abbott Lawrence, the Amer ican Minister, Sir Henry Bulwer, Earl Gran ville, Sir Charles Fox, Sir Joseph P***0"' designer of the great edifice Mr HiddeU ^ American Commissioner, and Robert J. Walker, the ex-Secretary of the Treasury. Sir Henry Bulwer, as usual, was excessiv y happy in his efforts, as also was the Earl Gran ville, who has made himself highly popular of late by his kind and pointed acts of ^sp'tal^y towards the Americans abroad. Among crin.Hta were Sir Edward Lytton llulwer, J>lr.
