The news of the death ot' Lord Raglan, com- J - mander-in-chief of the British forces in the j Crimea, brought bv the Arngn, was scarcely ex ; pected on this side of the Atlantic, though the | accounts of his illness received by the previous | steamer prevent the intelligenccawMkening emu- j tions of surprise. It does not appear by the ' Loudon journals that tiie announcement caused any sensation iu England. The public mind ] there had been prepared for his resignation, and his successor was already known. His decease,' however, has called forth all the generous feel j ings of the English nation. The Queen and the j Parliament have paid a tribute to his mein.-ry, j and the people and the press speak kindly or in- i old general who died in his country's service. *The following is a brief sketch of hi> lit-. Lord Kaglau, or, as lie was better known fur ' so many years, Lord Fitzrov Sonivr-et, was the ; youngest sou of the fifth Duke of Hear.fori, an 1 | undo to the present Duke, lie was bora in; 1778, and was consequently in ids M.\:v--igiuh , year.

Lord Fiszroy Somerset was a Coruetdu 1S04, a (J plain in 1806, a Major in 1811, and a Colo- j nel in 181*2, accomplishing in eight years what-: c ?st Sir De Lacey Evans, who saw still greater - i vice, forty years to achieve. Lord Fitzroy Somerset was present at every one of the great Pen insula battles, (lis rank, as is ever the ....... ..! .r..no,i.?,f.n,tod III 111 to tile IJllkl! of Wellington, then Sir A. Wellesley, who was i bur. too happy to attaoh to liis interest the jjow- ; e'ful family of the Boauforts by naming hiin on Lis stafT, and afterward raising him to the post. 1 .of Military Secretary. In this capacity heservjd j through the whole war, exhibiting on every oc- | casiou soldier-like abilities combim-d with f ar less courage. He was twite sever-ey wonml.-il, and lost his right arm at the farm ' !' ' Have Sain to," on the day of Waterloo. Wi.-ei after the great engagement the curiam f it or-,.! the wars of Europe, Lord Fitzroy S"mer\..:? was a p. pointed, in addition to other in n >v, S-eretary -of the Embassy at Paris. Then-;-': ii- nt'-iided the. Duke of Wellington to Vienna ami Verona in 1922, and in 182'j proceeded ; > S* Peters fcurg, whither ho was sent to congratulate delate Emperor Nicholas on his atMiesMon to the throne. In 1819 he was appointed Secretary to the Duke of Wellington, Master General of the Orfinance until 1827, and in 1829 was made Military Secretary to the Commander-in-Chi f. the functions of which office he performed during the reign of the several Commanders in-Chief down to the death of the Duke of Wellington,. On tiie death of the Duke, the command in. chief was, much to the disappointment of Lord Fitzroy Somerset, conferred on Lord liardinago, and Lord fitzroy Deing uuuuung iu serve uiiI der an officer of similar standing to himself, was 1 ap|)ointed Master General of the Ordinance, with L n Peerage, which he assumed under the title of Lord Raglan, that name of a. cattle which Ed ; ward Somerset, one of his ancestors, held against J Cromwell, as the last of the nobles. During the long reign of Lord Ilill, and the subsequent one of the Duke of Wellington at the Horse Guards, of Lord F. Summerset, owing to the ago of these veterans and the conli-, dence reposed in him, though acting as Military Secretary, was virtually Commander in-Chief, and i in an office where so much tact and delicacy , were required contrived during that long period, J with a strong class prejudice, to win and retain i t\\a ??noot onrl rnorfiril nf flip armv. He nC'VPI' I for one moment forest "his older," or abandoned J that faith in the divine right of aristocracy which | he inherited by birth and education, But. he concealed his prepossessions and bigotrv, with .Mich graceful art and Buch silvered, verbiage, as to make the refused Com in oners who left his hloMed in the fasr.inntlnc refusal than in a rudo compliance with their request. Without any military genius, Lord Raglan ! possessed a sound judgement, fearless courage J and Inflexible sense of justice. Devoted to drill, dutiful to death and daring to destruction, a just and generous gentleman of honor, courage, and deep senst* of duty lie possessed every qual ity for a second in command, but was wholly unfitted to govern an army. He had not the. I I?a i?Ahina f/\ rltroff t hit Iiruauium-u IU luinv.^ cue w u?i w, ...strength of mind to control or the energy to repair, which should belong to a great general. Lord Raglan was just that character of man which the English system in its best form begets. Trained in every step to memory instead of exercising mind, .as long as tilings go on by the prescribed regulation all is well.

Humorous Incident.?A !au.dial-!e incident occurred in this country some time since, die cireuin-tances of which wo got from one ac qnainted with the transaction. An old gentleman farmer, wiio had two handsome daughters, was so cautious of his charge, that ho would not permit them to keep the company of young men ; however, they adopted the following expedient to enjoy the company of their lovers. Alter the old man retired to rest, the girls would hang a sheet out of the window, and the Ilea a would seize hold of the sheet, and wiih the assistance of his lady-love, who lugged lustily above, would thus gain nr. entrance; but it s-> happened tli;|t one evening the girls ' hung out ilie sheet too eaily, for the old gentleman, by some illwind, was accidentally around the corner, and spvitig the sheet, could ' nor ( iii.-ftiirn Mm nicauiiii/ of its imincr there: 1 so he caught hold and endeavored to puil it ! down ; the "iris ahovo supposed it to he one ' of their henux, hegan to hoist, and did not dis- | ever their mistake until the old man s head was level with the window sill, when one of them exclaimed 'Oh Lord ! 'tis dnd !' and let 1 ling go the sheet, souse came down the old man on the haul ground dislocating one shoul I tier, whieli convinced liiiu that to make ' old maids' out of his daughters, was a matter not so easily accomplished, and withdrawing all further opposition to their keeping company, he was soon a father-in-law. i The Em pk ess Eugenie.- Without being by any means the perfect beauty her flatterers declare her to be, the Empress is certainly ono of J ( the very loveliest looking women that could be ( found. Her face is lighted up with such an ( innocent, gentle, and vivacious expression, and a | smile of such exceeding sweetness, as render her | perfectly charming, iler manner is at once | graceful, digniiinl, and gracious; she looks ab solutely radiant on a public occasion, and per forms Iter patt so pcifectly, and with sucit a , look of absolute happiness, that she seems not j only as though she bad been born tothestation | to which her singular fortune has raised her, l but appears, beside her impassable and uude- , monstrative partner, as though she was some ' sovereign in lior own right, who had espoused some man of humble rank, and sought, uuconsciously, to atone for his comparative cold and | Ungracious manner, by the overflowing of Jier , own royal ami native courtesy. And yet, to see ( her small, sweet, but pale and weary-looking face at other times, one. wou^d say that she had already entered upon that ue-tiny of sorrow of j which the lino of pain across her brow would , almost seem to be nature's own prophecy. i Population of the city of New Yons.-Thc ( Mirror says: I "According to the Allowing >f the marshals ] thus far, our city promises to have increased ( nearly 200,000 in the past five years and does ( not now number, if any, less than 750,000 souls.

If a traveller were to visit an American watering pjace at the height of the season, we fear that lie would conceive a poor idea of our iM.litonfw lie would lind so iriany i 1""' B people putting on airs, so many rendering themselves absurd with pretension, so many exhibiting a mere vulgar love of display, that lie would infallibly becuine disgusted, and overlooking the i really well bred, would pronounce us all a sot of conceited puppies. Foremost at such places he would find the would be exclusive*, who fancy they are proving their gentility by violating all the ordinary courtesies and customs of life. To be singular, tliey think, is to be aristocratic, and so they stultify themselves by appearing in sun-bonnets at church, coining down to dinner hi dishabille, MIIU (ILlL'l.UilJ^ it 1IVJ.' Ill ?i vwiiiuuiv* w he would see such persons affecting to be disgusted with everything thev eat, and pronouncing excellent accommodations " absolutely wretched." Have people any business aw;iy from home with sucfi ridiculous airs? Watering places are essentially democratic, and have bee? so considered ever since Beau Nasb ruled at Bath. The general comfort demands that all should bo affable, especially as an acquaintance, formed at such resorts, is understood, among really well bred persons, not to involve an intimacy in town, unless by mutual consent. Next in prominence are the gossips and talcbearers. These are always busying themselves about other people's affairs, retailing small slanders, winking iuueiidoc-s manufacturing falsehoods. They pry among servants and children,! poison the judgment of their li>teticrs, and 11 sedulously aim at setting everybody by their j ears. X.'.vl eoino the v ultrar pretenders, who. by dim of extravagance and show, hope to bo regarded as people of consideration. Then th"re are the empty fashionables, who follow slavishly , what they fancy the latest mode, and deride all j who difllr from them in diess, manner, or style j of acting. They will laugh cruelly to her face ; at an innocent girl, who dances more c'aboratclv i than they have been taught to, forgetting that j at the court of St. James, their polkas and' sehottishfe would be considered insufferably low. It is the mark of a radically base and vulgar heart to find matter fur ridicule in everything except vice or crime. No class of persons is really less well bred than those pretenders to fashion. Uut the ladies are not She only offenders. It is a common thing, in g"iug to a watering place, to see men rush into the ears. monotiolizin<r all the best sgats* Or they are seen snatching the choicer viands, at a steamboat dinner, from under tlje vr*rv eyes of the ladies fur wh?nn they were intended. Or I hey diive recklessly past? hay, almost over?nurses and children walking on the beach. Or they keep invalids awake at night, and offend the ears of ladies, by thoir bacchanalian shouts and songs. Or they puff their cigar smoke in the faces of women. Or they suffer an unprotected female almost to starve at table, by bribing the waiters to bring very thing t<> them. Or they gormandize liko g'uitotis. t ? the infinite disgust of all persons I ss Lastly than themselves. People at watering places should re m amber that there ij no public resort where their foibles atv. more easilv d- tected. for every one has lei ? ' J sure to observe his neighbor. T?> be natural, nttable and courteous, is, therefore, the only safe plan. Generally, when people put on airs, they \ deceive nobody but themselves, and instead of j exhibit!no their importance, they only betray ; their silliness and vulgarity. Philadelphia Ledger. Ho bides.?The London Times commences an editorial in the following style : "Theie are no men without their weak . points, on which their best friends would gladly , tic their hands or shut up their mouths if it , were possible. IVuhably their wish to do so ' is a mistake, as the supposed weakness is, after all, a necessary relief to some morbid craving, ; and a salutary vent for what would otherwise 1 , fill and overwhelm the mind.

" Is it not worse than vain to close our eyes Upon the azure eky and golden light, Because tho tempest-cloud doth sometimes rise, And glorious day must darken into night?" It is a sad tiling to be peevish, fretful and discontented. There are titties and seasons when it is almost impossible to rally a remarkable flow of spirits, even when there is apparently little or 110 cause for despondency. But these, with the great majority of the lilt man family, are, or should be, few and far between. There are some persons who are constantly making themselves unhappy, and without reason. They see nothing hut the dark side of life, and close their eyes and their hearts to the bright. They get up in the morning out of humor, not only with themselves, but with all mankind; and wherever they appear, or in whatever circle they 1*11 1 " i i rr?t cnm, aiscourage ana rcpuisc. iney pe.rnm < themselves to indulge in idle jealousies, foolish fears and vague apprehensions, and even if prosperous for the present, they predict some sad calamity in the future, and thus prove them selves morbidly infirm, and, in fact, insensible to the blessings of Providence. The effect is i not only to distress themselves, but to annoy j and disquiet others. They cast a gloom over everything for the moment, and serve to drive away the sunny influences which are so admirably calculated to brighten the pathway of life. In what happy contrast is the cheerful spirit ?the individual whoso heart is full of kindness and generosity, who is ever ready to say a good word, or to do a benevolent act, and whose daily life may be likened to a constant beam of sunshine ! He may be disturbed and depressed for the moment, but it will only be for the mo- , ment. A shadow may pass over his brow, and j silence may seal his lips, but his natural buoyan- j cy will soon acquire the ascendant, and his joyous laugh and cheerful smile will soon be ! heard and seen again. If be cannot say any- ' thing kindly or complimentary, lie has the good j L^itc.i All/1 in*1 tilt* fii/Jtti/r t.i L**i/jt\ hits ni'QAti If !

He constantly tries to i gladden and encourage, to cheer the desponding and unfortunate, to assist aud relieve to the extent of his ability. The head of a household, or the master-spirit of an extensive establishment, possesses, to a considerable extent, the means of making or marring the comfort and happiness of all who look up to, depend upon, or feel the exercise of his influence. Imagine a peevish, fretful and dissatisfied individual under | these circumstances! His very appearance | creates a shodde', for he is certain to say some j thing harsh, cold or uncivil, and thus to irritate j feelings, trample upon sensibilities, or stimulate , prejudices and passions. He is miserable himself, | and, according to the old adage, misery loves com- J panv.

In this case, the eloquence was the result of accident and not design, but none the less powerful for that but the story. Once upon a time, in a certain city, there lived a merchant, whose name is not at all necessary. Times were hard, as they are now, and the merchant had received from one of his customers at a distance, in answer to a previous dun, a letter stating his difficulties, and requesting time. Agitated, not with that matter only, but ma ny others, the merchant paced tho floor of his counting room, with arms behindjiis back, and a lowering brow.

Ail Interesting Chapter iu the Career of a Scoundrel* The Mayor in this city received a letter from Kentucky yersterday, desiring information in re gard to thw whereabouts of one William Winter^ alias Geo. Wentworth, whose career during the pitst few months has been diversified by deeds that will, we hope, eventually insure bini a home in some of our excellent prison houses. This William Winter, while travelling in Kentucky some months ago, made the acquaintance of a young and beautiful girl, named Eliza Ella Hunter, nnd after a brief courtship, induced her to elope and marry him, lie passing at the time under the .'issumed name of George Went worth. From Kentucky the new couple went to Philadelphia, nnd from thence came to Hoston.? Here Winter, as wo shall call him, boardded with the family of a Mr. l'carce, 011 Charleston Neck. While with this family his wife invariably addressed him as "mv husband," nevercalling him by name. This circumstance, together with the fact that the lady always appeared dejected aiyi sorrowful, ied the family to suspect that all was not right, and upon men tioning these sflspicionS, Winter, left the house and boarded his wife at Milliken's, in this city. About tins lime, ?inter tormed a connection with Miss Jennie L. Deshon in the publication of.a weekly periodical called the Zarfica' Enterprise, lie attending to the general business affairs, and she managing; the editorial labors. 9 O O Female agents were employed to obtain suo scriptious for a new paper, and a great deal of noise was made about woman's rights, moral reform and the amelioration of the condition of woman in all parts of the habitable globe.? Winter made a "soliciting" tour through the State of New York, and collected about 8500 of which, however, he was robbed one day while looking at a procession passing down brondway, in the city of New York. In view of his character it may be reasonable to suppose that he robbed himself. Shortly after this pretended robbery the Ladies* Enterprise was discontinued "for the want of adequate support," and Winter left for New York in company with his business partner, Miss Deshon. His lawful wedded partner was left behind at Mililccn's, he iraforming her that businevs had calied him away for a short tiniq. Tho partners in the Ladies' Enterprise soon turned up again in Albany, where they started a paper called the Ladies' Repository, under the firm of Winter, Acres & Co. Here they went through a coui>e of strung appeals to the public fur aid to publish a newspaper entirely devoted to the interests of oppressed females, and were successful in obtaining a few hundred dollars, which they pocketed and then left for parts unknown. The poor deceived wife remained at Miliken's about six weeks after her husband left and then started for New York, since which time she has not been seen or heard from by her friends. Her friends in Kentucky and also in I'hila delpliia, are extremely anxious to learn of her ? i- 1 ... . sir:. ,i .r-li wnervauoius. ?? nuer, iue causo ui an .iti aues is about twenty-six years old, lias light hazel eyes, light complexion, is of slender stature, and dresses very showy and fashionably.

Since writing the above, we have been informed that the publication of the Ladies' Enterprise has been continued by responsible parties, and that the subscribers have not suffered by the \i!lany of Winter.

How this glorious thought bouys me up, as I tread the rough paths of my wayfaring. The unshed tear has gone back to its fount, as I have opened the Holy Book and put my finger on the word immortaility. It is written on the delectable hills that rise just beyond the haze 1 that clouds material vision; yet there are times ! when the spirit asserts its supremacy, and rises ! on strong wings upward till it catches its affec! tion on the burnished sky. The long grass takes i!0 root in soil, ami the mould of tiino never cree|* with its.slimy foot over the beautiful structure. There is neither silence nor darkness around it, and the shadow of tbo grave passes before tlio sunlight of its glory. Ilave you not heard its sound breathing like an under tone through the loug pauses of the tolling bell? Mourners whisper it to each other between their tears and wear it in their bosoms as an amulet, wheu thev lav one whose foot j faltered in the course to rest just outside the crowded thoroughfare of life. " Immortality! It has rung in my cars, till even the wind grew inharmonious, and the midnight thunder discordant with the melody that filled my soul. It has shone before my eyes till the sun went to sleep in his gold and porple' chambers, and the sentinel stars come out on tho high walls of uight. One by one the weatli- * crs ceased and strong as a giant, tho sun rose up again at the bidding of day, Yet the brightness of this word paled not. It waxed brighter aud brighter till my eyes grew dim with its insupportable splendor. ! Henceforth tho ways ot life took a sunnier ! course and the flowers grew thicker and sweeter j along their borders, bo I learned to breathe it ofteu to myself, as I lie down and rise up?'This I .-i . t.,ji .... : | jiiujuij atiiui ];ui \jii ;iniiiuiuiiHj. | l.v Favour or Marriage.?Powers, the j sculptor, writing to a friend of what' people call | the folly of marrying without the means to sopj port a family, expretaea franlily his own fear* when ho found himself in this very position; but he adds with characteristic caudor: "To tell the truth, however, family and poverty have done more to support mo than 1 have to support thim. ; They have compelled me to make exertions that I hardly thought myself capable of; and often, when oil 'he eve of despairing, they have forced me, like a coward in a comer, to fight like a | hero, not for myself, but for my wife and littlo i 0110s. I have now* as much work to do a* I can ! execute, unless I can find some more assistance | in the marble, and I have a prospect of further j commissions." ? The truth, as expressed above by the gifted ! sculptor, is like a similar remark wo heard not j long since, by a gentleman from Boston, who ; tried matrimony in the same way and fouud ' afterwards that the loose change in his pocket, j which he had before squandered in "foolish no. tions"?young men's w hims as lie called them ?was enough to support a prudent wife, who by well regulated economy, has proved a fortune in herself aud had saved a snug sum of money | for her once careless husband.
