THE ANTI-SLAVERY BUGLE
Miscellaneous. From Wolfert's Boost. THE CONTENTED MAN. BY WASHINGTON IRVING. I . In the garden of the Tuileries there is a snnny ( eornor under llio wall of ntcrrnco which fronts the . aouth. Along the wall is n range (if benches com , mniiding a view of tho walks aod avenues of the , garden. This genial nook is n place of great re port in tlio hitter part of ntituimi, ntiil in line days in winter, as it set ms to retain the flavor of dc- 'lrted summer. On a calm, bright morning it is onito nlivo w ith nursery-maids and their playful litllo chnrccs. Hither also resort a ininibir of nneiont ladies and gentlemen, who, wiih laudable thrift in small pleasure nnd small expenses, for which the French arc to bo noted, come here to! enjoy sunshine nnd save firewood. Here may often bo seen sonic cavalier of the old school, when tho sunbeams have w aimed bis blood into some thing liko a glow, fluttering about liku iv fros! bit ten moth thawed be lure tho fire, putting forth n foeblo show of gallantry among tho ntitiipnntrd dames, mil now nnd then eyeing the buxom nur .sory maids with wh:it might uluiost be mistaken for an air of liborlir.iMit. jVra i" t'.io -.nbitual iVc 1 had i lien rcnintKcd nn old ccntlenuin, dress was decidedly nntiii'ovobuional. the three cornered cocked bat of too audi nt re gime ; his hair was iii...led over each ear into aileK ik' j-iifoii, a stylo strongly savoring if Euur (bonism ; and n queue stuck out behind, tlic Iiyalty of which was not to l,o disputed. His dress, though ancient, had an air of decayed gentility, nnd I observed that ho took his simfT out of nn elegant though old-fiHiioncl gold box. He np- fi eared to be the most popular man on tho wall;, le had ft compliment for everv old ladv, he kissed every child, nnd patted every littlo dog on the head ; for children nnd little dogs arc very impor tant members of society in France. I must ob serve, however, that he seldom kissed a child with out, at the same time pinching the nursery-maid's cheek ; a Frenchman of tho old school never for gets his drniirs to the fcx. I had taken a liking tj this old gentleman. .The.o was an habitual cxpicssiin if benevo lence in his face, which I have very frequently remarked in these relics of the politer days of France.

I now became a frequent companion in bis mcrn-i ing promenades, and derived much amusement from his good-humored remark on men nnd man- nerB. One morning, as wo were strolling through the alley of tho Tuileries, wi'.h the autumnal breeze whirling the yellow leaves about our path, my companion fell into a peculiarly communicative vein, and gave me several particulars of his his tory. He had once been wealthy, and possessed of a fine estate in the country, and a noble hotel in Paris: but tho revolution, which c Sec ted so maity disastrous changes, stripped him of every thing. He was tecictly denounced by his own steward during a sanguinary period of the revolu tion and a number of bloodhounds of the Conven tion were sent to arrest him. lie received private intelligence of their approach in time lo cU'ect his escape. Ho landed in England without money or friends, but considered himself singularly foitu nato in having his head upon his shoulders; sev eral of his neighbors l aving been guillotined as a punishment for being rich. When he reached London ho had but a louis in his rocket, and no prospect of getting another. ate a solitary dinner on beofstake, and was almost poisoned bv port wine, winch, Ironi us color, lie bad mistaken for claret. Tho dingy look cf the chop house, and of the little malioguny-eolored box in which he ate his .inner, contrasted sadly with tho u-nv saloons of Paris. Everything looked 'gloomy nnd disheartening. Poverty stared him in the face ; he turned over tho few shillings he had of change ; did not know what was to become of liiiu ; and went to the theatre ! lie took his seat in tho pit, listened attentively to a tragedy of which ho did not understand a word, and w hich seemed made up of fighting, and Btaliliins. nnd sccno-shifiing, nnd began to feel bis spirits sinking within bun ; when, casting his eyes into the urchesta, what was his surprise to recog nise an old friend and neighbor in tho very act of extorting music from a huge violincello As soon as the evening's performance was over, he tapped him on the shoulder; they kissed each nther on each cheek, and the musician took him home, nnd shared his lodgings with him. lie had learned music ns nn accomplishment ; by his friends ndueo he now turned to it as n means RutirKiit. Ho procured n violin, offered himself for the orchestra, was received, and again con sidered himself one of the most fortunate men up on earth, Ilere, therefore, he lived for many years during tho ascendancy of tho terrible Xapoleon. lie found several emigrants living like himself, by the exercise of their talents. They associated together they talked of France and of old times, nnd en deavored to keep up n semblaneo of Parisian life in the centre of London. They dined at a miserable cheap Ircnoli rcs- tauraut in the neighborhood ot Leicester nuarc i wherothey were served with a caricature of trench. coowcry. i ui.j mm un-ii n ..iu.:i.a,.t ..I . . ...mo , lrlr nnd endeavored to lunev it the I uileries : I in short, they made a thift to accomodate them selves to everything but nn English Sunday. Indeed the old" gcntleninti seemed to have noth- in to say against the t,nglish, v horn he niurmcu to lie biace yens ; nnd ho mingled so much among them, that at tho end of twenty years he could speak their laugungc almost enough to bo under stood. The downfall of Xapoleon was another epoch in his lifo. IIo had considered himself n fortunate man to make his escape penniless out of France, nnd he considered himself fortunate (o be able to wtnrn nenniless into to it. It is true that ho found his Parisian hotel had passed through several hands during the vicissitudes of the times, so ns to be beyond the reach of recovery; but then he bnd been noticed bcnignantly by government, nnd had a pension of several hundred francs, upon which, with careful management, he lived inde pendently, and, as far as I could judge happily.

The substitution of his hend nlone for that deformed figure labelled 'liberty' would be a good step, nnd in the hands of a good sculptor the i,i,,d would make a more brautiful coin face tbun nf we know. But our eagle is an ornithologioal curiosity a sprawling. etraudliDg, ungniniy, graceieee ining. which any school boy who had evor soen a bird of any kind should bo ashamed to draw. It violates every law of anatomy and taste alike. There lies before us. a half dollar of 1854, n late coinage. Will any man w ho is cnpablo of seeing a difference between n golden pheasant and a Shanghai cock, look for ono minute, at tho bird nn that coin and then say that it does not offend him. Turn it over! You have what is supposed to represent liberty an effigy, but still not an heral dic one.

The dies and coining would cost no more than at present, and instead of the wretched things which greet us when we draw n coin from our pockets, we should see community works of art models which nn as piring young sculptor might emulate.

Byron BY BARRY CORNWALL. Anti-Slavery. HON. HENRY WILSON. ,,.,,,,,,-.-,.,,.,., ,- . , j;i,,i hi. nU,;uhlIlellt t, ftnd r,ea for ,' Anti-Slnvory cause. Hut for aught wo seo, (Jen. Wilson of lr52. is Oou. We havo road with cure Senator Wilson's speech on the bill to protect persons executing the Fugi tive Slave Law from prosecution in State Couits, delivered in tho V. 8. Sonato 23d last month. Thore has been n great deal said about this speech, and evidently, there has bcon much misunderstand ing in reference to it. It was n matter of doubt as to w hat course .Mr. WiUun would take in regard to tho slavery (inestion in Congross. It was half j Wilson of IMS. Tho speech is characteristic of the man. M'e think he has not disappointed his friends. True, his sentiments nre not radical tlic v never were. Ho never took thorough ground on tho slavery nucstion. Honetsonly on tho de fensive let mc nlnno, and I will let you alone. In n word, Oen. Wilson is an Anti-Slavery man, but hardly yet nn nbolitionist. Hence he tnlks more aboiit the past a'iire.ssiou.i of shivery than about slavery itself. This is f.ilso ground. It is im politic and dangerous. So lorg as wo admit that slavery can be protected nny whero by law that it niny be legal in South Carolina nnd not in Ne- uraka Hint wo cannot, constitutionally, oppose slavery w hero it doe.i exist, but only where it docs not, just so long w ill our exertions bo powerless and our speech-making ridiculous. Mr. Wilson denounces the Fugitive Slavo Act, but adds that Massachusetts will fulfill her Constitutional obli cations I c hope she will do so. but what arc those obligations t Is Massachusetts under cousti tutional obligations lit return fugitive slaves? Is sho under con-titutiunnl obligations to send back to tho hellish horrors of Amorican Slavery her Thomas Siinms and Anthony ISurns? Mr. Wilson leaves tho impression that such is her duty. IIo does not say that such is not her duty. Wo hear tily w ish ho had. Wc wish he had told tho Slave- power in Congress that no Free Stnto in tho I'nion was under the slightest obligation cither to return or to yield up a singlo slave. Then ho would have snid something effective, essential, and true. Hut Massachusetts will not thank him for thus inter preting her legal obligations. Mr. Wilson is n brave man. nnd a lion in his wny. Put let him como to treat slavery liko any othor piracy, as an illegality and n crime every where, which Civil Government nnd not only mni, but is bound to suppress, then will ho be strong and more capable of pressing his wnrcfarc against the system. Put now, slaveholders sit by and listen to his fatal concessions in their favor with tho keenest relish nnd approval. Says Mr Wilson: "1 have confidence in tho fidelity ol the people of Massachusetts, to the obligations im posed upon them by the Constitution of the U. S." 'That is satisfactory' says Benjamin of Louisiana. So it is so long as slavery rules the Constitution and tho tjovcrnincnt. .Mr. Wilsons political creed needs splicing a littlo. Time will mend it.

It is iu no ordinary sense of compliment that I say this ; for I have regretted that he has not given to the Bar the illumination of those splendid talents which have won for him the admiration of the world ; I have regretted that he has not given to the Legislature the advantages of that eloquence and erudition, which, whenever he has nn opportu nity ot presenting them Octore the public, arc re eeived with so much favor nnd respect i nnd while I respect fully, thoroughly respect the conscicn tiousuess winch has led him to say "1 will read tho Constitution of the United States correctly, bo tho consequences what they may; and if that entails upon mo retirement from the influence, the honors nnd emoluments, nnd, (what is of more consequence,) from the lifo of nn intellectual man at the Bar, to whi 'h I was educated, retirement from the halls of legislation, nnd from all that is i open to an hounrahlc ambition, nnd from the nppor- i . ..... . i. ii- .. lunuy iu iissociuiu uu no loraoio name wuu Honor able achievements, I will surrender it all," I again say, that it is in no ordinary sense of com pliment between man and man that I speak of him as I have."

Ou Saturday, one of our citizens who holds a berth in the Boston custom-house, before coming i.omc bought n lot of tine trout for his Sunday dinner, making them into nn otucuil looking yollow-papor bundle ; he took his dinner at a restaurant, sitting by the side of a strong fi esoil senator, w ho had uiado up a similar bundb of good abolition docu inents lor his Sunday feast. Our friend, on reach ing home, delivered his bundle to the Hibernian damsel, with a charge to forthwith clean tho contents.

"Good gracious, no!" groaned our friend, as ho slow ly became convinced that ho hud changed bundles in Boston w ith tho nbolition sen ator, nud had brought away that w hich he regarded quite as scaly as his trout, but infinitely less di gestible. As the senator had a great speech to prepare, we fear that the two bundles fell into mutually unappreciativc hands, though the trout would much sooner commend themselves to Lie maw of a tyro, than would the sermons. llEPORTEn Attemi't to Rescue a Slave.

The sum received bv the Mexican government for the sale of two hundred Indians was $00,000, as appears by an official order from the Secretary on Foreign Relations, in which it also appears that the pre text ib that the Indians wero rebellious, nna were captured in tho war. Against this, however. thev have made a foleinn protest, averring that they were peceably, und took no part in the war, Tho census returns of Mexico recently publish cd, show that thore are in that county 85 cities, 103 towns or largo villagos,5,809 villages' 110 mis sions, &a. 170 haciendas, and 0,0'Jz farms, &o. Tho totnl populntion is stated at 7,853,305. The sum paid by the Secretary of the Navy for the steamer City of Boston, to go on the Arctic expedition, was $50,000. The new light ship at t'hiladelphia is also to go on too expedition as soen as rcnttea. TUB ANTI-SLA VERY UVGLE. rini.isiisD rvrnr satirdat, at ialcm, onto.
