State Po ire Tribune: Gilbert Stusit, The Yankees have boao-ne notorious lor their question-asking propensity, and s yet sometimes John Bull exhibits so re markably a developement of this trait, we m..st conclude that Jonathan and John are at leist co.isius. A good anecdote is related of Gilbert Stuart, a celebrated American portrait painter, whose replies p-.i/.zl d the inquisitiveness of his English tra'eliiug companions, in their attempts ‘ to find out liis calling. On one occasion Stuart was travelling ] m a stage coach, in England, with some I gentlemen who were strangers to him. ■ 1 but all of whom were sociable and full I \ of auim ition. His brilliant convcrs ition >|al powers attracted much attention, ar, 1 ■, his companions became desirous to ,now | who an.l wliut he was. They asked man * | roundabout questions to find out his c dl I ing r profession. .Mr. Stuart answered, II with a grave face and ascrious tone that ": he sometim. sd.cssed gentlemen's and la 11 dies' hair. | "You are a hairdresser, then,’’ remark ’ | ed one of his companions, inquiringly. ’| "W’hat! Slid he; "do you take in-I ) for a bar ner ? ' ! j "1 beg vour pardon, sir. but I inferred I r; ii Irom wimt yo i sai i. If 1 mistook you, I • may 1 take tne liberty to a.sk you what | 1; you do tuliui ?" , .

"Be as r" | sured all 1 have said is literally true. 1 dress hair, brush huts and coots, adjust a II cravat, and make coats, waistooats and ! breeches, and likewise bools anil shoes at ^ your service." "Oho, boot and shoemaker, after all." ° "Guess again gentlemen. I never ^ h ind.ed boot or shoe but lor my own feet and legs ; yet ail I have told you is rtriet it ,, ' 11 ly true "We may as well give tip g- easing, t- then." remarked one of the party. Alter checking hia laughter, he said to 'them, very grave; "now, gentlemen, I 11 will not play tho foul with you, but will ' tell you on my honor hs a geutlennn, >" i bona tine my profession. I i>el my b ead -by ma'.inj fuce.-." He then screwed his *'000111011.1110'', and twisted the lineaments I his visage in a manner such as Samuel P’ F ote or Charles Matthews might have ,a auvied. W hen his companions, after loud p-als of laugnti r, had composed themselves, each took credit to himself for having, all the while suspected that the gentleman belonged to the theatre, and now they all il knew that he must be a comedian by pro fession. But to their utter surprise, he °" assured them th it lie was never on the ISS I stage, and very raiely saw the inside ol 1 1 j any theatre, ilis companions now looked ! at hiui and each other in astonishment. hei lielore parting, Stuart laid to his com j p inions : ucuuii.uou, win uuu luai an 4 18 have said of my various employments is “* comprised in tnase few words : l am a “* portrait painter If you will call at Johr ct* I'ulmur’it V.,,k Buildings, I.onaon, 1 shall °* be ready and willing to brush your coal ut or bat, dress your hair, supply you, if ir 11S need, with wig. of any la-hion or dimen' lP* 1 sions, accommodate'you with boots 01 '•r shoes, give you ruffles or cravats, anc "a ] make luces tor you." *’ | On parting with him at the inn, thoj begged leave to inquire in what part •> ls" England he was horn?
