Hoth people nre from the same stock: Imt whence came both? Their history does not elonrly lei! us. It states that they nre Tartars, of the race of AtSlhi nud his linns, and that thev caino from the V'.ast from Asia. The Magyars crime last, and found the Sickly already settled inj their present home in Transylvania.

Their figures nre fine, nud their faces full of expression; Tlifcy resemble tho Mag yars so much that you cannot distinguish them rum each other. Like the latter, nil, both rich and poor, wear the mustache. Vanity, w hich in other coun tries prompts many persons to tho cultivation of this appendage, has nothing to do w ith the Cushion among the Sxcklcrs : it is simply a habit to which both thev and the Magyars li-.no nlwnvs been ac- rustomed. That it is not a vanity on tho part of the Siieklers is evident from their mode of dressing. In this tlify observe the greatest simplicity; a dan dy is a raritv among them. They uro even ultra careless in dress, nnd on this account are often subjected to raillery lv the morO elegant Magyars of the largo cities. They nro altogether, a people of simple tastos and habit" in other words, nil unmniiiitri! rare.

As far ns their history extends buck they have been a demoerutie peoplo, even more so limn tho Magyars for the latter had among them nn aristocracy of mang.ites, a second class of lessor nobles, nnd a peasant people. On the contrary, the Sitklcr were all equal, both in lnw nnd roa'lity In all countries yet known the idena, "Liberty, Equality, Fniternltt'," have been more a boast than a real oist"neo. 1 hey have no place in the bousted freedom of western Europe, nor in America, with its three million of negro bondsmen.

In tho latter times tho house of llapslairgh, by evory vile means, made encroachments upon their freo constitution, and to stay tho progress of these was the cause of tlio ate Jingynr-Mcklnr war. Alas: Its lmorty is now e brushed; its rights nre trodden beneath "the iron heel of tho Ausliian trooper! Tho Szeklers have never been a warlike neonlo: I mean, a people delimits of war, or ambitious of its red glories.

Tuuir well-tilled fields nud well-built houses the splendid roads that in all directions cross their country tho signs of intelligent industry and respectable prosperity, that greet tho traveler at every turn, prove the correctness of this assertion.
