An author has observed, in contrasting the haughty Spaniard with the frivolous Frenchman, that the proud, steady gait, and inflexible solem nity of the former, were expressed in his mode of salutation—“ Come cats?—“How do you stand?”—whilst the “Comment vous portez vous?”—“ How do you carry yourself?—was I equally expressive of the gay motion and inces sant action of the other. The Dutch, who are considered great eaters, have a morning salutation, common amongst all ranks—“ Smoakel vk eeten!”—“ May you eat a hearty dinner!” Another, probably adopted in the early periods of the republic, when the peo ple were mostly navigators and fishermen, is — “ Hae vaat awe?”— “ How do you sail?” The common salutation in the southern provin ces of China, amongst the lower orders, is—“ Ya, fan? Have you eaten your rice?” When the Chinese meet,alter a long separation, they fall on their knees, bend their faces to the earth two or three times, and use many other afl*ected modes. They have also a kind of ritual, or, “academy of compliments,” by which they regulate the number of bows, genuflections, and words to be spoken upon any occasion. Ambassadors prac tise their ceremonies forty days before they ap pear at court. The Japanese take oflf a slipper.and the people of Arracan their sandals in the street, and their afnrL iniva i >i f ho hniluA u. hon than fit I n to In Otaheite they rub their nones together. The inhabitants of Garment-, when they would show a particular attachment, bleed a vein, and present the blnnil to their friend ns a beverage. Two Negro kings, on the coast ot Africa, sa lute bv snapping the ntiddle finger three tmv-v. An Ethiopian takes the robe off the person lie meets, and ties it about him, so as to leave his friend almost naked. The inhabitants of the Philippine* bend verv low, placing their hands on their che- k, and raise one foot in the air, witn the knee bent.— They also take a person's hand m foot, and rub it over their face. Greenlanders have none. Laplanders apply their noses straightiy against the pei son they sa« . . . _ . root of the person saluted, pasS’it gentry Otc. Wo , right leg, and over the face. It appears, by the Paisley Advertiser, that ( Mr. Blair, manager of the Johnson’s Gas Works has made a discovery, which if it become of gene ral application, will in a great measure rum the Sheffield cutlers. Some time ago a portion or the moist lime, by which the gas is purified, fell by accident on the back of a dog, and a small bit of wood having been used to scrape it oil, the hair was at once brought completely away with it Mr. Blair extended the discovery by prac tising on his own beard, which now requires no ri70f.
