(From Miss Martineau’s “Society in America.”) The most common mode of conversa tion in America I should distinguish as prosy, but withal rich and droll. For some weeks I found it difficult to kpep awake during the entire reply to any question 1 happened to ask. The person questioned seemed to feel himself put up on his conscience to give a full, ti ue, and particular reply; and so he went back as near to the deluge as the subject would admit, and forward to themillenium tak ing care to omit nothing 'of consequence in the interval.—There was, of course, One here and there, as there is every where, to tell me precisely what I knew before, and omit what I most wanted; but this did not happen ofteq; and 1 presently found the information I obtained in conversation so full, impartial, and ac curate, and the shrewdness and drollery with which it was conveyed so amusing, that l became a great admirer of the American way of talking before six months were over.—Previous to th t time, a gentleman in the same house with me expressed pleasantly his sur prise at my asking so lew questions, saying that if he came to England he should be asking questions all day long. 4 told him that there was no need of my seeking information as long as more was given me in the cou»se of the day than my head would carry. I did not tell him that I had not power of at tention sufficient for such information as came in answer to my own desire, lean scarcely believe now that 1 ever felt such a difficulty. They themselves are, however, aware of their tendency to leng«h, and also to som thing of the literal dullness wh ch Charles Lamb complains of in relation to the Scotch. They have stories ol American travellers which exceed all I ever heard of them anywhere else—such .a*, that an American gentleman, return ed from Europe, was asked how' he lik ed Rome? to wnich he replied, that Rome was a fine city, but that he thought the public buildings were very much out of repair. Again, it is told against a lady, that she made some undeniably true remarks on a sermon she heard. A preacher, d scoursing on the blind ness of men to the future, remarked,— ‘How few »*^n, in budding a house, consider that a coffin is to go down stair»!'> The lady observed, with much emphasis, on coming out, that the ministers had got into the strangest way of choosing subjects for the pulpit! It was true that wide staircases are a grfrat convenience; but sh» did think Christian ministers might find better subjects to preach upon than narrow staircases. * * Yet there is an epigramatic turn in the talk of those who have never heard of The art o( conversation,” which is sup posed to be studied by the English. * Some young men, travelling on horse back among the White Mountains, be came inordioa’oly thirsty, and stopped for milk at a house by the road side.— Thev emptied every basin that was offer ed, and still want' d more. The woman of the house at length, brought an enor mous bowi of milk, and set it down on th^ table saying, “One would think, gen tlemen, you had never been weaned.” ******* Fhom Tampico.—The schooner Watch man.

Having got information of the acciden tal poisoning in Ren wick street, mention ed yesterday, the fellow obtained access to the premises by assu r.ing the part of a servant to the Coroner, and made him self very officious in attending to the company during the inquest;—in the course of which time, he found an op port unity of stealing from the mantle piece a silverwatch of considerable value, belonging to Mr. S. G. l)ean, one of the occupants of the house. The article be ing missed immediately, the rascal was suspected and apprehended, and the watch recovered. He was fully commit ted to his old quarters in Bridewell.— Ar.

I take peculiar pleasure in giving “B” this information; for I am fully assured by the honest and Christian like tone of his queries that he would be vastly griev ed to hear of any miscarriage of the gentleman he speaks of* and for whose success, he is doubtless very anxious. The manifestation of a different feeling to waids him from any source would cer tainly be strange. C. MARRIED, On Tuesday evening last, at Harpers’ Ferry, by the Rev. Mr. Hays, Mr. George W. R.

Mrs. Bryce was at the time of her death on her way to visit her relations in Vir ginia, after a separation of nearly two years; her health became so delicate as to unable her to proceed further, and in stead of returning to the home of her childhood, her Heavenly Father saw best to take her to tha> place of eternal felicity prepared for the lighteous.
