The Foreign Quaiterly Review for October con?
tains an article of some twenty-five page? upon
the Newspaper Literature of America?contain?
ing much that is false and unfounded, and more
that unfortunately is true and richly deserved.?
We are not among those who. whenever a foreign
journal presumes to lind fault with our institutions
or aliuse our habits, feel under some great neces?
sity of moving heaven and oartb with indignation
?as if our very existence depended upon the
good opinion of a foreigner. It is not at all strange
that they should not love us?we have never given
them special occasion. Wc began by rebelling
against their authority ; we have, as a nation,
sieadi/y rejected their attempt- t?*> impost* upon us
their customs and rules of action ; and we arc
\\Vsly to prove their forrnidnblc rivals in all the
obj?cw of worthy national and ??ocial aspiration.
\Ve are therefore very ready to excuse their abu?
sive temper *, and do not feel at all disposed to
b?ttk- oursrlvcs to weeping and wailing on ac?
count of their censure. But, on the other hand,
wc have no disposition to deny that we have faults
?great and prominent ones ; and it would be very
itratige if they should overlook these in their
?icarch after materials for vituperation and ie
iirpach. When, therefore, they hold these up to
view?albeit to our shame and disgrace?wc feel
dispose?? to profit thereby?calmly to consider the
ftuuiicb on which their censure is based, and
??el) to convert it into motive and means of re?
formation. As a nation we are yet young?"in
the gri'-_.!i?"?a? Buhke expressed it; and it will
not do (or us to imagine that our youth, unlike
tli.t of all oth'.r nation. _nd societies, hus no
weaknesses. Far better shall w? find it to make
u**e of the eyes of others, to acknowledge the jus?
tice of -hiii well-founded censure, and to trettt
with the sc-urn it merits their ?dander and ground
lei?) aspersions. The article in the Quarterly has
been charged upon Dickens,?upon no unques?
tionable evidence, so far as we can see, though we
confess there are internal marks which lead us to
?ppose that ho at least had a hand in furnishing
i.9 mater'-l. However that may be, wo feel in
tlined to make extracts from it?partly to show
the unfairness with which it is written and the
fubbhoods which it contains, and more to lay be?
fore our readers some of the truths it undeniably
utters. We aid thus to give them currency, not
as the words of Dickens, bur. simply of the For?
eign Quarterly. It contain-?., in the first place, a
treat number of the most palpable lies, which the
?lightcst cure or regatd for truth, would have
avoided. One of these is the assertion that the
" Herald is a paper published daily, in size more
than, o single sheet of the Times, and about a
penny in price." Can the man who wrote that
evvrhft*?^i?ea both the Herald and limes? But
?Abat shall Le thought of this passage :
"fa January last there was a murder in New
York, with every circumstance of aggravation
against the miscreant that committed it excepting
two. Mr. Colt, that was his name, had influen?
tial friends and was not a man of color. Tbc
odious details ?ppearud in our own journals, and
?eeing nothing more at the time, wo fancied the
gallows had had its due. But again and again
ha. this blooJ-stained villaiu been convicted, and,
, .funs, ho burdens the eath to this hour with his
?inexpitUed cri me.
The simple truth, as all our readers know, is
that t_ Mr. Colt?as to every other man in the
Initt- Stales, high or low, rich or poor, has been
txt-ded nil the protection, as well as ?11 the
rigor, o?' the Common Law?Unit Law which has
Bciiuitedall its binding force from its use for long
c-iurieain Great Britain, und which now rules
there as it does here. Would the English Cuurts

ing ?his he has never been able even once to obtain
anew trial; und now his last appeal, quite as
wpohsi as any of the rest, is to bo respectfully
i-ardatn. calmly considered. It is scarcely cred
Mstbat Dickens should have ntterod so bold a
lilsehood as that contained in the passage we have
Ihe following passage concerning the infamous
'i*u which has for so long a time brought upon
?*Drtican society a more damning disgrace than
HJ other engine the most infernal agency could
?arise, coulains truth which comes home to every
fttron of its pollution. We arc glad to see it in
???Jrcign print?because for years past the great
**?) of English readers and writers have received
'??wir impressions of American character from the
f'-tanns of the? Herald ; and notwithstanding his
??r-sib?? and just appreciation of its reliability?
'?c"Joll he confesses that it is strange " to detect
2 l? any thing approaching to a truth"?the wii

-*1* of moral honesty forbids its exercise. Per

cial patronage and singular favor of?the Presi?
dent of the United States.
To describe in any minute detail a publication
of this nature, the reader will readily suppose to
be something more than difficult; and to succeed
in so describing it would be certainly less than
pleasant. The quality of it-? writing scrm? to u?
at all times, and mail its departments, of the very
lowest grade, and how Capt. Marryat, condemn
ing the vile character of this print as became him,
could possibly think it written in a very clever
and very effective style, is to us incomprehensi?
ble. There is a certain effect produced, beyond
question, when a man calls you thief, scoundrel
or liar; and no cleanly person will be at all in?
clined to doubt the effect with which it may be
quite pos*ible to pelt him with filth as he passes
along the streets: but there is in all this as mani?
fest a defect on the side of cleverness as on that of
cleanness. The weapons ef the New-York Her?
ald are of this order in every case. There is only
one word that can describe trie tone of every ori?
ginal sentence thut appears in its columns, und
?his ooo word we most be excused for usiog. It
is blackguardism. The law ol the whole estab?
lishment is thut; its profits have that sole source.
To say any thing ns it i.? said i.\ decent men, to
commit a single sent? nee in a tone of respectabil?
ity, would be fatal to the Snake of Newspapers.
When it seems on rare occasions lobe lapsing that
way, it has a habit of recovering itself, before the
sentence finishes, with astonishing ease- We
know that the devil can quote scripture, and is un?
derstood to have commonly self-respect enough t?>
doit gravely; but this "bead-devil" of the New
.'ork Herald, as he aptly calls himself} does not
dare to put his infamy no fur in peril as to venture
on even that. He was defending the other d_y a
miscreant wretch, who, in hi.? capacity of minis?
ter to the principal church in Rochester, had con?
trived the ruin of an artless child, und consumma?
ted the guilt by an unsuccessful .effort to charge ii
on his own nophew; he of this Herald we say,
fellow-iU?ian, in discharge of Iris ordinary dutv
was defending this atrocious miscreant; when,
bethinking hirn that there wa? something to the
point in a Book commonly reverenced bv all men.
I he proceeded thus: " We can safely say to th<
pious clergy. ' he that is without ?in among ye,
pick up ffig first brick and lei fly at him.' ''
No bad specimen this littlo extract, id iijclf 0f a
?tyle and tone of Literature enjoyed with its high?
est relish in the bar-rooms of America; read,
though let us hope with moderate liking, in bei
drawing-rooms; studied and smiled at in her enh
inctat Washington; spread daily before her attcn
live Senators and Representatives in "-Congress ;
and, on ground? too cn.'dible for rejection; the sub
ject of the? special patronage of-tier republican
Chief Magistrate. But this is a part ol th-* sub?
ject we are not yet cometo: desiring first, to ena?
ble the reader, in American phrase, to " realize"
a litlla more completely, if possible, the every
day contents of the notable journal in question:
Its si.e we have stated, but it should be seen to
convey any reasonable notion of the infinite \\n
likeliness between it and our English journal, hi
every thing but size. Its miserable whiry-brown
paper; its dingy, uncomfortable print; iis per?
fectly ridiculous non-arrangement: its jumble in
one hopeless mas., of leaders and police-reports
advertisements and abuse and moral t'-'flections,
puffings and bankruptcies und crime?. politicim:.-*
at Washington and paupers i?i England and pick?
pockets at the Tombs*, these are points it has in
common with every newspaper in the United
States. In none of them is the least cflott at ar?
rangement observable: in none docs the mere in?
terest of the reader for a singlo instant appear to
take the place of the convenience or profit of the
editor. A lengthy advertisement) stupid or gross as
the case may be, will at any time displace the
topic of the day; aud even tho virulent onslaught
on Whig or Democrat, expected ever with such
greedy and anxiou? appetite, will be found to have
given way to the. editorial lament uvcr non-pay?
ment of subscription.?!, oribe editorial triumph l"i
some victory of the cash press over the credil
press, or the Wall-street over the cash press. Not
of course that this would find toleration with any.
were it not sure of a large ?mount of sympath*
with all : an American's feelings in whatever at
feets the pocket being sensitive exceedingly, and
disposing him in such cases to Ui?' instant and
strongly countervailing reflection) that his editor
is at any rate one of those smartest of men who
is never to be caught asleep to the main chance ol
life?nmney, money, money, the great and final
business of existence.
But while in these respects"the New-York llet
ald shares only the general characteristics ot it
brethren through the States, it has, with tin
marks of infamy we have indicated, some peculiar?
ities of its own. Its appears, by means of course
of its evil gains, to have organized throughout the
country a very extraordinary and complete ?system
of correspondence, so that, in every chief city of
the Union, it has a resilient representative. And
these are laborers worthy of their hire : being all J
such reckless libolers of every .hint, decent, and |
such impudent dealers in every thing vile, that |
the "bead devil" bim?elf must be often hard pul
to it to keep his scandalous supremacy. The cui
universally is?' Spare no one. Thrust yourselves
into whatever house you can get. and every where
leuvc your slime. In no direction fail to abuse.
Let fly at all: the more eminent your game, the .
more atrocious the falsehood we want; but fly
low as well as high, for tho praise wort hy thirsioi
every free citizen to know his neighbor's affairs.
extends to the affairs of every other free citizen
without frivolous social distinction. Never think
a scandal can be too malignant. It is to furnish
bitterness for a hundred thousand tongues, and
what would be any thing scant or small toward
satisfaction of so many ? To be satisfactory, say
every thing but what is true, and above all things
nothing that is kind.'?Nor is it counsel uttered,
at any time, in unwilling or inattentive cars. Its j
last clause is ever most especially cared for. A j
recent and emphatic announcement of the princi- j
pic of abuse contained in it, had reference to a |
distinguished writer of our own. " Bo/.,"' said
the Herald, in its off-hand agreeable manner.
'* Bor. will return to Cockneyland, kiss his young
Cockneys, write a book about the United States;
praise the Country ?uni the People most shock?
ingly, and then be laughed at for a Fool or a Flat,
Cut up and you are liked. Lard only makes
one sick a' thejstomach .'*
Such being the rule of conduct with the Her?
ald and its writers (for we cannot stop t.? inquire
it our fanions countryman i". likely to bring down
upon himself these complimentary imputations,)
it was a somewhat startling circumstance when, in
the beginning of the present year, one illustrious
exception was suddenly discovered. All parties
in the State, we need hardly tell the reader, wen?
taken by surprise on the sudden accession of Mr.
Tyler to power: and all parties in turn, not a little
for that reason, havo worried and persecuted poor
Mr. Tyler. With iho Whigs, or as we should
?ay, Conservatives, whoso exertions and sacrifices
unintentionally placed him where he is, he soon be?
came the special object of suspicion and di?like:
and the Democrats* have bullied or borne with
him, only in proportion as his credit rose or fell
with their opponents. None, of any side, have
ever trusir.l him. P,y Federalist and Loco-Foco,
by Slave-driver and Abolitionist, alike despised,
buffeted and abused, this hapless dignitary can
hardly have had a quiet hour since he took up hi?
unenviable abode in the President _ House at

Washington. But he himself so well df-scribed
this state of things in tbe beginning of the year,
in a letter which baa yet attracted no notice on
our -de!?, the Atlantic, that hi? pitiable case is best
given in his own word.??. He is writing to some
friends of his administration to excuse him?*clf
on tlie .-?core oi harassing affair, from attending
a dinnrrthey bad got op in Philadelphia in honor
! of the birth-day of Washington; ami he invokes
the memory of the Fatbei ot* bis Country to con

It is a lit occasion for the prevalence of faction,

Nowin this scathing noti?e of die Herald, which
so far a_ the Editor himself is concerned, is of
com se utterly thrown away, as have been long
since .-cuie.. ??; bonse .whippings !i?>m every quai
tpr. and which can be of service, therefoie. onl\
by its reflected influence upon his readers, there
is only one serious error. Ir. assumes the.t the

to which they owe their present position. With

acter he so vividly paints i?. perfectly lifelike?and
betrays a k??en eye for its peculiar beauties.
Many of our other journals are severely han?
dled: we copy the following passage chiefly with
reference (?? the fiict that the Courier ?_?_. Enqoir?i
pointedly rebuked th?. complimentary Balls and
Dinner? which \.eie tenderrd in DlCK.E_.__i while
here, and treated the distinguished author with
much less respect than many worth} people though)
his due. What b? axing this fact may have m de
itumining the authorship of ihe Review mir rend?
ers must judge. Tho following is the passage re?
ferred to : ?
Anothci ?it our nowspaper heroes we must uutv
bring forward: one whose journal is among those
distinguished by Capt. .M?nyalas "einual to many
of the English newspapers." This man describes
himself as Col. Webb, of tlie United States army;
and his friend of the Herald tells us he is " a
frank, manly blackguard, ? fine-looking, burly,
honest kind of savage." After patient and not
very pleasant examination of the Courier and
Enquirer, the pupcr he {?resides over, we are
bound to say that with the exception of the man?
liness and honesty (as respectable people under?
stand those words), the second description may be
correct enough. This warlike editor has th?: ap?
parent excuse of political warmth for what he
nays ; his motives to slander seem hardly so gra?
tuitous as those of .Mr. Bennett; perhaps ho i-*
really less fond of filth for its own sake. But in
lilth he is ah ?.?(??al adept, when political opponents
are to be pelted with ii ; he scorns, with that
slight reservation, the claims, the decencies, the
charities of private life; a?d among those who
wage war against the sacred rights and happiness
of home, he is on the whole entitled to a much
highi r commission than that he affixes to his
name. Quice a respectable paper, notwithstand?
ing, is the Courier und Enquirer ,* and a popular
Wliig organ. Tho man ha.- often changed poli?
tics, but it is for them that lus?; him to object to
that: he was bankrupt the other clay for a large
amount, but ail America is bankrupt; he is said
to recover himself by bribes, but every man must
have, money somehow ; he libels his most distin?
guished countrymen (Mr, Couper was the last),
but small damages cover that ; one of his recent
inventions was a letter to embroil the President
with his Cabinet, but the Secretary ought to have
written such a letter if he didn't; lie accuses
member- of Congress ol selling their votes for so
many tboiisaml dollars a piece, but. they are lucky
members to make so much of their votes, and far
too reasonable tu lind fault with a mete tribu'.e to
their smartness. Altogether, therefore, a most
smait man ii this Colonel; fighting duel-, in addi?
tion t-> his other accomplishments; and when he
receives a. wound, converting it to stock in trad*?.
Vor then will he appear, surround-ed by bis friends,
un the Exchange atj.Ncw-York; and the careful
exposure of une arm in a sling will remind his en?
emies, that they had better be called thieve, nnd
liar, through the ?ity in the pages ol the Courier
and Enquirer, than have chance of a bullet
through ihr brain from the pistol of Col Webb.
In this passage, su strongly marked By classic
elegance and Cbri.t ?an charity, it will be noticed,
the chief allegations against Col. Webb rest wholly
upon the authority of the Herald?which he has
before so justly characterized as the " convicted
libeller o? all that is manly and decent" in Amer?
ica. Much other matter the Review contains to
which we have not room even to refer. Several
Amerk-ui papers are warmly praised-?ihe Na?
tional Intelligencer, tlie Boston Advertiser, the N
V. Evening Post and the American ; journals, it
will be well tu note, which have earnestly arid
uoanimou-ly urged the propriety uf establishing
an International Copyright Law?the chief mis
?ion upon which it is supposed Mr. Dickes? cam?
E?XIWe^ OCTOBER 21. is_a.
to this countiy. We mention ^this, nut by any
means to dispute or question the justice of the
praise, but solely with reference to the point ot
au?io.-ship. Tne following passage, the last wc
?hall quote, may convey to American readers an
excellenr lessen, with regard to their prospects
and duties, if they have sense enough not to re?
ject the whole in their contempt for the sneering
t?nern which ilis written. The dexterous turn by
which it i.s made to ben.* upon the Copyright ques?
tion is worthy of notice:
We say, then, that the very r-u-t and living nour
iibment of all this frightful restlt?Sness and active
Hatred, winch with everything good and enduring
now wages continual war, we find tobe these
newspapers. 1 he common people of America
were in that half-educated state winch could not
dispense with literary nourishment of some sort ;
and with what co?t them least, of money, of un
derstanding, or of time, th?iy were of course pre?
pared to sympathize. But had any effort been
made if encourage ?tny other kind of Literature,
who shall .???% ibai some happier result tr.igfii not
have presented itself than this we now behold '
i Country less enlightened, !c?; truly libera!, less
pleasing in its manner, less observant of the pro?
prieties^ of :jHe, and less mindful of its honesliC
and right?, after nearly fifty years of independence,
than it was a*, a mete colony of Great Britain,
harassed, insulted, and oppressed! Were any
effort sow made to encourage opposite tenden?
cies : wore there statesmen and writers bold
enough and strong enough, meeting on the com?
mon ground of proved and unquestioned patriot?
ism, to undertake, though at some graver cost than
that of mere personal discomfort, to instruct their
countrymen t<> look to a Future as well as to a
Pr?sent ; lb give them (he inducements and the
means to do so ; to shape their tangible interests

?Iessrs Sandi : Gent.?In the cholera summer of the year
1832, a. disease first made its appeai__-ce on the end oi my
tongue, winch continned to ?-prend gradually for thr?*<*
ytars, ?lurisg which time I was under the treatment of ?I if
lereRt pjysiciaas without receiving any essential benefit. I
was salivated until the il?*.h dropp?-d trom my gum?. My
tongne was scarified, frequently cauterized, slit lengthwise,
ami cxttcrosswise, until I was t??l<l thai the only cure woulil
i?<- tocotmy toogoeotf *t the root; but as it seemed un
certain whether tins would puta stop lo llie re.v ?_.???.-.ii sucL
-t tiT.tr---"*-. I preferred to n-k my life ratliet than submit t ?
the operation.
\ scrofulous a?ecti.n now commenced "n my righ teheed
a little bti'nv the?ye, and continuing inward ??-v?n .itia'-ked
the bone, forming matter inieriially, which d___harg?*d in
tu*: mouth through .?n opeoing caused (:?- the extraction ol
a tooth. The disease then seized opon the roofoi thembatb,
jusCunder the opening fr?m the nose, and soon destro* inj
the bone,continued it- pi-ogress upward and backward into
ihe bones of the nos,', which ?; destmyed, togctlier wlilitlie
cartilages. A gathering then took place in.my head, which
ili-tliarg?'il a thick fetid matter from ihe wax, which resem
bled soil bones or shells, as it came oui in strings as large
round asa goose-quill. Pieces of bone also dropped from
my bea?l into ihe mouth through the passage made by the
disease in the upper jaw. The crimp) iint now spread over
the nose and enveloped both eyet_? destroying the lower
eye-lashes and stopping the opening Iroui the eye:? t'i the
nose, which caused almost acuiidnoal Bow oi team. Atthis
lime my smell and ta*.fe were boili gone, my hearing nearly

condition, if not wholly, was nearly thr?t ol idiocy. The
diseaf-?' <_ceaHon*illv appeared 10 be I?, life. .in?.l then 1 looked

groaning, and niy <>niv hop?* i!..-p:\;r. often an?t often while
others slept in Hit- Mill hour.?, ol night, 1 have turned my
lace to the wall an?l \-i-heil to die.
Although 1 stood on the brink 61 ??-ternity ami the thread
ol lile wa?> nearly severed, yet I siill breathed ou, the latnjt
held out to burn : I little thought it would be ever trimmed
again, n^d only hoped that death would swallow up the
liatne. ?My sickness wn? first broughlon by my imprudently
exposing myselftn a sirong current of air while over-heated,
whiebcaoseia sudden ?heck of ncrspiration. My com?
plaint nt fir--, seemed light add hardly worth while to call a
physician; but 1 soon began to grow worse, and a physi?
cian was called, who prescribed some pills containing a
powerful preparation ol mercury.to be followed by sarsapa
rilla root and lignum vitar ma?ie into a tea, which I eontinn*
ed using for sever. I months without inieniiivsion. SooHaf
t??r taking the. mercury 1 began to feel its poisonous influ?
ence. My whole glandular system became affec'i'd, also
the bones, joints and mu-cl?". ; lumps liirnietl upon the skin
nearly as big asan egg nrcouiHauetl with inteuse burning
heat, wblC'ri kept ?welling until they broke, and discharged
matter and blood. 'Hie?*? continued to increase until they
covered my whole body. But this was only thebeginoiug
?ifiny afflitaj-uis; now commenced those torturing pain
terineil cbtonic rheumatism. Attune.-. i>. seemed as if I w_s
strt*tche?l upon a rack and all my limbs were being l'-rn j
from each other ; at others as if sharp knives were piercing i
i me at every point. The muscles of my [egs.soen.ed.tied la I
kiioi?. and wer?; as liant as a bone. My di-tre.-s w??s itfjiw so i
great that my groan-, at night disturbed ihe whole bouse
and al.-o some of the families in the adjacent buildings. I had
not slept a night since the early part of December last : die
only sleep 1 obtained was a f'.-w hours during the middle ol
the day pillowed up in a chair, an?l the ernpitOQ ha?l ?h-?
fearfully increased. My lace was completely covere?l with
an extending sore. I hail now shrunk to a mere skeleton?
the skin a.i?l ilesli were so disea-ed around my thighs that
tlie bon??? nearly protruded, and tic? physicians pronounce?!
my ca-e beyotul the reach of tnei'.icine. Oh how 1 wished
that 1 might _!?e From my long and protiiicwd illness we
hail become much reducedln circonistances. A short time
-ince while looking in the pap?-.-., I chanceil to??.e your
Sar-arjariila advertised, accomponied with a certi?caie from
Mr. Burdock, of a most extraordinary cur?-?made by its use. ?
The case iris?me respects resem_?leu my own, and 1 lounil
that lingering hope still clung to life. It seemed like a !
whisper nom heaven. The second day after 1 commenced i
I taking it I fell the pain much ensivr ami went to sleep. I !
had not slept like this before lor momiis. By ihe time 1 |
! had used one botil?;, liie pain had nearly left, the eruption :
| wasaLso much better. I now tell a strange hope gathering ?
? in my breast thai I should livel peri_.r?> be cured. No; this ;
! could not be. 1 dared not believe it. 1 sent ami got another ;

I_l a few days since a miserable,safli-ri.-ig,dying man, was :
almost well. Tw<_ w-t-eks fr?.?nlhe ?lay I look the first ?lose
I was out, and walked nearly three miles wiiiiout even the .
assi-tance of a cane. And now, gentlemen?yes, now, I am !
well: and have testified before my _???d up?)n His sa_i.d ;
