teach, di (ordered by & haaty supper oa half cooked

days, by a strange Cirsarian process. Our ancestors,
aimple folks, used to fancy it incumbent on an
author to nurse the germ in his fecundated brain
till the foetua assumed a definite shape, and conld
bo marshalled into existence, safe from the brand of
monstrosity. Modern writer* miscarry 'ere the em
bryo hath ahapen limb or nerve, or blood, and mid
wives and doctors in droves pledge their willing
taith that it will live. Potent elixira and oonliala
elicit some reluctant spark of animation; but re
action 8oon follows, and 'mid the feigned aatoniah
ment of foster- mothers and wet-nurses, the emascu
lated bantling expires a miserable death.

We own to a sneaking partiality for Pierre, rough
and unnatural as he is, and share his fiery rebellion
against the yoke of conventional proprieties, and the
world 0 cold rules of esteem. Weep we, too with
gentle Isabel; poor bud, blighted by a hereditary
o&njLer- And, need we blush to avow that our pulse
beat faster than our physician iq ordinary would
hare sanctioned, when the heartless Stanly dis
claimed his poverty-stricken cousin, and strove to
wrest his reiuetant briie from the arms of her chosen
lover. But- that shot ? was it manly? wag it hou

the flask, and reeling forward, fall heavily across

whom infamy is pleasant, so it be the price of her

tribes, whose taboo bas become naturalized among
us, and whose aquatic nymphs have fired the imagi
nation of many a future Bouganviile or Cook ! fs
there not a solitary whale kft, whose cetaceous
biography might have added another stone to the
monumental fame of the author of Moby- Dick1
If our senses do not deceive us, Mr Melville will rue
his desertion of the forecastle and the virgin forest,
for tho drawing room and the modest boarding- house
The former was the acene of victories
of which *o young author reed be ashamed ; the
iMter. we fear, has some defeats to witness Sbcial
life is not, perhaps, more difficult to paint than
pleasant excursions into Mahomet's paradise : but
it requires a different order of talent. Mere analyti
cal description of sentiment, mere wordy anatomy
of the heart is not enough fur a novel to-day.
Modern readers wish to exercise some little judg

racters painted in cold colors, to a hairbreadth or a
?v j . ? e ,aT? P481 the ago when an artist super
scribed his chefdiruvrt with the judicious explana
tion, " this is a horse " Mr. Melville longs for the
good old times when the chorus filled the gaps be
tween the acta with a well-timed commentary on
the past, and a shrewd guess at the future
But we have a heavier charge than this to ad
vance. Mr. Herman Melville, the author of "Typee"
and "Omoo," we know; but who is Mr Herman Mel
ville, the copyist of Carlylc ? Most men begin
by treading in the wake of a known author, and
tiinidJy seeking for shelter under tho cover of his
costume. Mr Melville ventured his first flight on
his own unaided pinions, and now that their
strength has been fully tested, voluntarily descends
to the nursery, and catches at leading strings No
book was ever such a compendium of Carlyle's
faults, with so few of his redeeming qualities, as
this Pierre. Wo have the ^ame German English?
the same transcendental flights of fancy? the
same abrupt staits ? the sam<; incoherent ravings,
and unearthly visions. The depth of thought? the
unci ring accuracy of eye? the inflexible bounty of
purpose, aie wanting; at leatt, nothing outwardly
revcala their pre?enee. Like msny other people, Mr.
Melville set ms to have attributed a large share of
CHiiyle'n popularity to his bod English: whereas, in
point of fact, his defects of forui have alwi v- proved
a drawback to his suceefs. and nothing short of his
matthless excellence of matter, would have intro
duced him into literary society. ? A murti higher rank
would baie bcec he d to-dav l-y the au'hor of "Bar
tor Itwartus," had he rlad bis striking and brilliant
ideas in a loss barbarous corb. The fault was ori
ginal and "catching." Herds of pretenders to lite
rary fame hare langed theuoselvcs under tho banner
of the Edinburgh reviewer, and, fancying they were
establishing a Carlyle ist school, have borrowed
their master 'a bump, without stealing a single ray
ln>m the flashing of hi- eye, or a single tone from
the haimnty of his tongue. Sorry, indeed, are we
to class Mr. Melville among theee Could be but
sound the dt)?th* of his own eoul, he would disoovor
pearls of matchlets pricc, that 'twere a sin and a
shame to set in pinchbcek finery. Let him but
?tudy the classic writers of his own language ? dis
sect tbeir system? brood over their plain, nonest,
Saxon style? not mere French than German? the
?earth would soon convince him that he might still

losopher of I a**y, it will satisfy onr want?, with

^ et a single admonition Nature, Mr Melville,
is the proj>cT n.odil of every true artitt Fancy

must never be suHered to winder from tho reality
we are striving to paint. No poetical Vcensecan
justify such defiartiires from tbe style of ordinary

PhilUs tons of conversation is long since dead and
? uried; trouble not its ashes. I'aaaion can excuse
jiicohtrency, but not fine drawn mannerism, or

American Hcttkbiority at the World's Fair ?
This is the title of a new work, just issued from the
prone of John J. Hawkins, Philadelphia, and as its
title imports, its contents are desoriptire of tha vari
ous contributions of the American nation to the
Great London Exhibition of 1851. The work itself
is, for the most part, a compilation of ar tides whioh
appeared from tuno to time in the oolumns of the
t\J!W Yqbk Hkuld and other journals of this city
and country, Chambers'' Journal, the London Art
Journal, the London Times , Illustrated News'
Punch, the London American Magazine, andother
periodicals, with newspaper reports, letters, reports
of mechanics' institutes, &o. The work i3 inter
spersed with numerous fine lithographio plates of
soreral of the contributions of American skill, inolu
ding the dipper yaeht America, Colt's revolvers,
McCormiek'b reaping machine, &c., and altogether,
it is just the one tnev needed to perpetuate the
American chapter of tho London Exhibition of 1851.
Accompanying this book, which is got up with great
taste, is a ehromo lithographic picture, most Beau
tifully executed, divided into several compartments,
representing forty object# of superior taste and skill,
(?elected lrom among tho Amerioan contribution*,
having as it* centre piece the jaoht America The
work is for sale at echeiler & Maggis's. No 7 Nas
sau street, and it certainly deserves to have a place
on the shelves of every private and publio library
throughout the country.

Aicbbishop Hughes has dcsoonded from the dig
nity of his ecclesiastical position, to the lovol of a
profane scoffer, in using with reference to me, state,
ments unworthy tho truth and charity of a servant
of God In replying to him, I shall endeavor to
iscend to what snould ho his position, and occupy
jt if not as a prelate, at least as a gentleman.
In tlxete explanations, 1 defend myself leas than
my compatriots, and the saored reminissencos that
moved us to the religious efforts which hare brought
ni>on all of us tho displeasure of his Graoc: and for
this reason, rather than personal considerations, 1
desire to state the exact particulars.
Ihe republicans of this free and happy Union will
understand the deep and reverential grief which we,
exiles from eur native land, because we desire Cuba
to be free, must cherish for the memory of those
who have been ?acriCccd in our cnuse. for us the
first of September is henccforth a day of national
veneration? a day forever sacred to our beloved ami
illustrious dead With a common impulse, the Ca
tholic Cubans of New Orleans and New Wk ad
dressed themselves to the heads of their church In
their respective districts for tho customary solemn
and condoling rites of religion. We did not apply
for these services as republicans or politicians, but
8Ji Catholic Christians, desirous of paying to our de
parted friends and brothera every tribute of res
pect that reverential love could dteUte. Uur afrec
Uon prompted us not to omit any of the majestic
accessories with which those rites are celebrated on
Eolemn occasion,, and which the > Archbishop did not
refuse to the memory of the Duke of Orleans. The
distinguished Bishop of New Orleans, eminent alike
for hit- wisdom and virtues, listened to the applica
tion of the mourning Cubans in the'.puitofafa
thcr and shepherd to his flock- The church wa.
veiled in moirning, and on a cenotaph wreathed in
funeral crape, were inscribed the names of those for
whoso repose these sacred rites were offered.
Wo, too. earnestly besought the melanoholy con
solation of having those names before e^es
when we raised our prayers te> Heaven in thou bo

The sale waa at five per oeot. Wa are dUpo?ed to

profitable employment of capital In developing the
?ni?i?g wealth of (he country; but we are de
cidedly oppoeed to everything In the ahape of
deoeptioa, whether hi mining or any other department
of Industry Within the past two years full a down
thriving eowpmiea have been formed in thin oity and
vicinity, not one of which haj aa yet ahown a result
Moot of them are dOli^j well, and will no doubt sooner or
later good returns ; hat before tha public are sailed
upon to fill the capital stock of new companies, it would
be well. enough to wait the development of those in opera
tion. The Great Northern and the St. Lawrence Lead
Companies, of 8t. Lawrence oounty, N. Y. ; the Ulster
Lead Company of N Y. j and the Canal Copper Com
pany of Maryland ; the New Jersey Zinc Comoauy.
and tha Montgomery Zino Company, of New Jersey ;
the Warwick Copper, and the Chester Lead companies, of
Pennsylvania. are all ia active and we believe inostsuc
cessfui operation, and until each or moet of these become
firmly and thoroughly established, it will be difficult to
put others on tbe market. We cannot be too cautious
in thin movement. Judiciously conducted, the raining
interest of this country can be made as productive as
that of Great Britain, and there Is no reason why
it should not be. That we have inexhaustible sup]
plies of tbe most valuable minerals iu our immediate
vicinity, there is not tbe slightest doubt ; but we
want experience in getting it out, and can only acquire
it by alow degrees. If we make a false step u?w,
it will put the movement beck months, perhaps years;
and it is, therefore of the most vital importance thit
anything in the sbape or a mining company, which is at
all su>ploious, should at once be exposed and plno.>d in
a proper light be fore the community.
Cumberland Ceal stock was 'n demand this mornio?
at the improvement in prices. The new ispue of stook
will all be taken by the old stockholders at eeventy-flve
|ver cent. As this issue fills np the capital, there wHl
be. without doubt. ^considerable competition to get it. It
would be the best policy to give tho old stockholders tin;
privilege of taking the new issue, in proportion to the
old i?sue standing in their names at the dosing of the
books. This would be fair, and avoid favoritism. Ni
caragua was iu demand, but only about four hundred
shares were sold. There is very little doubt hut that
this stor k will soou command better prices. North Ame

no idea of what a day may bring forth. At the socond

There was a moderate demand for foreign exchange this

The whole amount of bids for the three million Penn_
sylvaaia Railroad loan, was about ten million* of dollars.
Tbe loan is to run to 1880. boars six per cent. Interest
and is Issued in coupon bonds of $1,000 each, converti.
ble into stock at any time before December 31st, I860. It
U stated that the whole amount was bid for by Chas. 11.
Fisher, at a premium of 3.20. conditioned that he should
be awarded the whole loan or none. As there were bids
fcr sums not less than the whole amount, at a higher
premium, tome difference of opinion waa entertained as
to the right aad propriety of the company to exercise
any discrimination in aoceptiug the bids. On full con
sideration, however, the loan was allotted as above
stated, the oompany considering it the best offer male.
The road is two hundred and forty-eight miles long, to
Pitt?burg, a single track of which cost twelve and a half
millions of dollars. Of this sum, over nine millions have
already been expended. j
At a meeting of the Board of Directors of the Suffolk
Bank, held this day, Mr. K D. Foote waa removed, and
Mr. John W Rumsey appointed as director in his placa.
Mr. H. M. Taylor was also removed from the office of
cashier. His successor will be appointed in a day or two.
This removea all the internal difficulties of this Institu
tion. and its business will probably now progress smoothly (
and we hope profitably.

\alua put upon the market second
waek in September $1,180,302 $1,333,753
All brnnobea of the trade coutinue active. There in a
renewed supply of domestic staples which yet bring full
prices, the demand being actire. Drees goodi of prime
grade are in muoh request; low qualities are avoided.
French goods are offering freely at auction; some large
t rench houses preferring tfaU mode of selling their im
portations. The result ia favorable to tile seller. We
particularise the whole market as follows: ? In domostios
the demand for brown sheetings and shirtings keeps upi
and large sales are making at 7 Sf a 7 Xo. for heavy de
scriptions Prices are very firm. Blcachod goods sell
with increased briskness, and prices are still buoyant?
narrows, 5>ic.: broads, 12c. Drills are in good request,
at full rates? bluee. 0c ; browns. 7'-|C ; bleached 8c. Os
naburgs ate firm with a limited demand, at ftiU rates
Denims are steady, at 8c. tor all prime grades. Stripes
are in poor supp'.y. and firmer Ticks* havo slightly ad
v i. need. Canton flannels are firmer, with an inadequate
supply. Printing cloths are rather dull, but very
steady in price, at 3,'i a .Vic. Prints of desira
ble styles sell briskly, at full rates. Glasgow giug
li*m- tell quickly, at 10 Kc.. leaving no stock ;
Manchcstcrs are from 10c., and l.ancasters, 10, Sic.
Delaines of good qualities an' still in good demand at
full rates, but poor qualities are a drug. The supply is
good, with a varied and desirable assortment. Cloths are
in good request, with a light supply, allowtug of little in
crease to the piosent scarcity of stock Castimeres are
very active, and at full rates, but heavier goods are now
more required. The demand embraces all kinds ? plain
and tancies. (Satinets still come to a good market, and
sell well. Linseys are firmer, selling readily at 18c for
prime goods. Tweeds are actire, at regular prices. Joans
are in but moderate request. Flannels aro potting soiree
and prices are higher. There is an active inquiry. Blan.
kets are more wanted, and at full rates. Shawls are in ra
ther better demand; but not yet general. Priccs arc firm.
The arrivals of French goods have been considerable, yet
fail to satisfy the very extensive demand. Few parents
offered remain unbroken; and whether it be silks, wool
len'. or cotton.', diefs or staple goods, tlie consumption
is large enough to take up the successive supplier, at full
and rather advancing prices. The auction sales have
lately presented some large lines of Frenr.h goods, fresh
from ship, which attracted great attention, and much com
petition was excited. German cloths are selling largely
and well. British goods are brisk but sell not so exten
sively as French and continentals. Dress goods of prime
qualities bring fair prices. Heavy cloths are in some re
quest still, thongh the sales hsve been already large. The
demand is setting in from ibis State and the Northern
country, though the Western demand is yet the most
Stock F.ichinige.
