? Fatalism.—By Mathew Ca*ey.
Moreau de St. Mery, a French exile, who kept a Book-store in Philadelphia,was a decided be liever in destiny. He observed, in a conversa tion which I once held with him on this subject, that one man might fall out of a three story w ln dow and be slightly, if at all hurt-while ano ther, in crossing a gutter, or coming down stairs would fall down and break a leg or an arm.— In proof of his doctrine, he mentioned many of his own remarkable escapes, ot which l remem ber but two: On one occasion, he had been con demned, <fc was on his way to the guillotine, when one of the Guarde Nationale,—(a journeyman printer, to whom Moreau had done some kind iiess,)—took hold of him, and asked, ‘What do vou here?*—crying aloud, at the same time, ; This man is a good citizen,—I know him well.’ Seizing him by the arm, he dragged him from among the crowd of victims, at a moment when he appeared to be on the verge of eternity. At another time, he was at Brest, waiting for a wind to sail for this country, having become very highly obnoxious to the ruling powers. It had blowed for several days west. At length it veered about, and blew favorable for his voyage. The captain, resolved to profit by it, sent a bell man through the city to summon the passengeis to come aboard without delay. St. Mery was seated at a table, eating his dinner, but rose from his seat when he heard the bell, although he had but half finished his meal. The ship immediately got under way. She had not been out more than an hour, when a mandate arriv ed from Paris to arrest Moreau, and bring him to that city for trial, at a time when trial and condemnation were nearly synonimous: A ves sel was sent in pursuit, but was unable to over take him. Thus a life hung by the thread of an hour’s duration ot the wind in a favorable quar ter. _ Punishment fob smoking in the srREET.-Burnes in his travels in Central Asia, in his description of Bokhara, a large city, states, “ You may open ly purchase tobacco, and all the most approved apparatus for inhaling it; yet if seen smoking in public, you are straightway dragged before the cadee, punished oy stripes, or paraded on a don key with a blackened face, as a warning to oth ers.” This is a good hint to Europeans; for the prevalence of smoking in the streets of our towns is a great nuisance. Mathews, in his recent bud get, has a hit at the common practice, and says, “ the dandies darken London by smoking cigars in the streets.” DIED. On the 27th ult., near Wythe Ct. House, Va.. In the 50th year of his age, Col. John G. Stuart, late of King George county, Vn. It was but a few weeks since, we saw him in health, and spirits, though saddened at parting with the cherished friends of his youth, braced to a manly tone, by a sense of duty, set out, with his amiable fami ly for the South West carrying with him the af fectionate respect of all who knew him. He haJ reached Wythe county, when disease arrested him. and in a few days burned his flattering pros pects and ardent hopes in the grave. He was a warm and generous hearted man, proverbial for his hospitality, and kindness of disposition. We wish not to indulge in studied eulogy—one fact will bear testimony to the hold he had upon the affections of the people who knew him best: the citizens of King George, on the eve of his departure, gave him a Public Din ner—a testimony of respect, which, however prostituted for political purposes, in the instance under consideration, conveyed a compliment to a private citizen, of which any one might be proud. To all his old friends and neighbors the nofvs of his death has occasioned the deepest sorrow — Fred. Arena. • [In recording the death of the lamented gen tleman whose character is so well sketched in the above article, we may be allowed to offer our humble tribute to his memory. Col. Stuart was deservedly popular. The very model of a Virgina gentleman —with all that gaiety, socia bility. kindness, hospitality and politeness, which belong to the old school, he won the affections of the young, while he secured the esteem of the more aged. Mount Stuart (his residence) was, emphatically, the seat of hospitality; and many who read theie lines will, no doubt, sigh, as we do, over the remembrance of the happy hours tt^re spent with its noble hearted pro prietor. Col. Stuart had represented his county in the Legislature of the State, and, for the last few years of his life, was Clerk of the county. His friends loved him as one of die best of men and kindest of neighbors. In all the relations of life, he sustained the most exalted character; and when he left King George for Alabama, he left not an enemy in the world behind him. The death of such a man may well occasion aocrow. To all who knew him, the event will be the cause of the deepest regret.] At Norfolk, on Monday evening, Lieutenant William Taylor, of the United States Navy.— Lieut. TayJor was a native of Lunenburg coun ty, Va., and entered the Navy at an early pe riod. During the Jate war he was for a time at tached to the United Slates frigate Constitution, and participated in some of the glorious victo ries achieved by that ship. He also served on Lake Erie, under the gallant Ferry, where he was wounded. At Natchez, on the 1st ultimo, the Hon. Foun tain Windsor, late Lieutenant Governor of the State of Mississippi.
