Correspondence of the Charleston Jlhrcury.
Sarvtooa Si*aiNi.% Aug 4, 1FH
[ h ive been dretching my leg* and resting my
Plain, for the last week, by a rustication. Throw
ing jnvself carckssly into ti<e *urrent ot tiavel,
the tide has landed me, after one or two gurgles
and eddies, by the way, hiph and dry,in t ’engross
Hall, Saratoga. It has been high and dry liter
ally; high—because the place is so crowded that
one can get a sleeping place only in the tenth
stoi y, or rather only above the tenth layer ot un
man strata which constitutes a story at the hot 1
Spa, dry, although a watering place, because
there lias been no rain for two weeks or more.
If you ever saw a comcrib of one of our Jersey or
Dutchess County farmers, during harvest, you
can have souiii idea of the manner in w hich pe o
ple are stowed away in the Congress Hall caia
van or the United States menagerie. Men and
women are actually bursting out of windows and
doors, as cotton will sometimes burst out ol the
scams and holes of an overstutfed bale. 1 Here
arc said to be no less than four thousand strange rs
in the village at the present moment. These wa
iters ootnc from all parts of the i nited States,
and indeed of the civilized world; they embrace'
men of every character and profession; they me all
full of love of excitement and pleasure. Some
have been drawn hither by the tumous virtues ol
the medicinal waters, to attempt to neowr
health; some come to display their persons and
their wealth; some to attend the State courts
which are in session; some to attend the tempt !- j
unco convention, which is also in session; some to
r.el hui'bandsand wives; some, professional peo
ple and gambler'*, t<» m • U«» money; and some,—
because they have nothing else to do. 1 he \a
riety of character and conduct is then, tore im
mense , annd furnishes a prodigious hue opportu
nity to those comical or satirical gentlemen who
delight in the observation of human nature.
Among the more distinguished visiters here i>
Mr. Van Buren, late President oi th ' Puitcd j
States. Me lodges at the IVin-d States Hotel,)
and looks as fat as a buck m the beginning of the ;
hunting hmsoii. His retirement certainly agiec;? |
w ith him marvellously- - so mm h so, that a ung j
net very fiiendlv to him as apolilu ian,say * that it
is a pity he should, ever leave it. t >t coum , we all
speculate as to the obj. cU that may Invc brought
him here—a politician, you know, never being
able to move, or even tie his shoe, witnoiU hav
ing some sinister and pels nal de-i mi f Ua* say s
tlmt he is arranging the hoaid lot !h* next pohti
cal campaign; another, that he is in -aan h ot a
wife; and a third, that, being tired of the duji i
routine of a farm, iie wishes to break the* m- not- j
onv of his late htc by a little oissipation. I <u- j
haps they aie all light. Melody has a better j
right to either, or is more likely to succeed m j
cither, than the ex-President I be mercwhis-i
per that he has an eye to the s* x, has, ot com sc,
act the women ^itie m: rrugable ones, 1 mean) all
in love with him, so that the very dandies hang j
their heads with shame and envy.
Mr. TV. P. Willis is another of our notable per
sons. Me seems to stand on the lead ct those
loungers who combine tin* literary w ith tkclasn
ionablo, he Lj^ingrjUite a- remarkable an u,huttt
tle^nntunum in waiseoats ami nnaun.' as ne ^ iv

and alxva\s manages to suuound lumscil v. hh a
crowd of attentive admirers and heaters.
As to our entertainments in the musical wax,
have we not the Castellan? and is not that glory
enough for one place? It is astonishing now popu
lar she is in mere report. AM tLc way coining
here, \ am told th,*t the people ol the towns and

to get a sight of her At Bullion, the beaux lit

In the theatrical line, the cl.a t iv| rcsedative
is that exquisite performer Mr. Henry l‘iaci«lc—
who is not here, Iiowevci, profes-mnuhv, 1 u- as a
private gentleman- An at tor ol so muc h talent,
and a man of such sterling worth, attracts no*
small share of our regards.
The clenty, too, have their representatives in
the Kev. George lioth.unc, of Philadelphia, as
.witty and agre cable a coin pardon as he is a hi
ved and eloquent preacher; and the venerable lh*
Rice, of Princeton, N. J. 1 should, perhaps, re
fer in the same category to prophet Geo. M unday,
of Philadelphia, who is here discoursing of'king
dom come,* and selling newspapers. Geergc is
about three feet high,has long hair, and w ears no
hat. His beard reaches down to his breast; and his j
doctrines are of the strictest sort ot the anchorites, j
He not only does not shave his chin; hut he eat'*
no meat, drinks no wine, siccps with no wile,
lies upon a hard bed, and reasons of righteous*
ness and judgment. What is a hide remarkable
about so rigid an ascetic, he is always cheerful
—cracks his joke, if he cracks no bottles; and
while stiff as a poker against all manner ot sin, is
soft and fonder as a child towards ail living tica
turcs. He steps out of the vu) of the worm m
his path. • . . ,..
In contrast with George and h.s simple ha ;«>
and strict notions, are the lots ol dandies who
throng these nests rl his species ot animal is so
common, and the varieties of the species aie so
much alike all over the globe, that you need no
description of them : suffice it to say, there i?
a master specimen of this sort here, who is a
noveltv in his way. One feature will do tor
your readers—and that is that he siccps aii nigut
with gloves on, and with leeches applied to the
ends of his fingers, to make his hands delicate and
wniio: . . ,
There are fewer Southcners here than have
been customary in former years. What is the
reason? Have you found better places ol en
tertainment ? or have you grown wise eiu»ug.i to
spend your surplus cash among yourpvvn p< e
ple? If the latter let me congratulate you upon
the acquisition. Depend upon it, that absenteeism
of any kind is not the best way ol promoting
prosperity. The thousands of dollars which your
rich rnen have been in the habit of spending at
the North, will be much more usefully employed
at home. _ __

tune, and position, and expanded by a knowledge
of the world and cf books; but instinctively rev
elling in an “awful event” or a “melancholy, in
cident,” a “sight” of any Kind, and above all in a
talc of scandal; all which, to do him justice, he
was unrivalled in telling; the ciivurmtanccs that
gave character, life and interest to the story, arc
preserved ns by our best reporters, but in t^r tet
ter style; whilst all their prolixity , minuteness,
frivolity, and vulgarity are discarded. Vet was
not the journalist Walpole a mere newsmonger.
And his sheet had these great advantages—he
was mostly terse, often elpgaqt, always genteel,

sent Holman and Hickman wind they mi ;ht get

The Whig aristocrat pci ps out in the following ,
wcil-brcd contemptuous notices ot Garrick;
which Walpole might not have liked the player
to have known.
‘•We are sending you another couple, the fa
mous Garrick and his once famous wife. He
will make you laugh as a mimic; and as he know s
we are great friends, he will alfect great partia
lity to me; but be a ldtlc upon vour guard, re
mumber he is an actor.”
*■* + -* -
“Jf the honors l have told you Mr ..Garrick has
received in France do not obtain him a chair in
a Florentine conversazione, l think you must
threaten them with the thunder of the Vatican,
which vou see we have at command; but to be
serious, j would not 1 ave you get into a squabble
about him; he is not worth that.”
This is a neat characteristic of U'chardson—
“There is a Madame do Beaumont who has
lately written a very pretty novel,culled “Lottie*
du Marquis du Kosse 1c.” It is imitated, too,
from an Knglish standard, and in my opinion a
most wofulone; 1 mean the vvoiks ot Kichaidson,
who wrote those deplorable tedious lamentations,
Clarissa and SirChas. Gr.mdison, which are pic
tuicsof high life as conceived by a bookseller,
and romances as they would be spiritualized by
a Methodist teacher.”
The name, family, and event, which Walpole
so contemptuously dismisses in the billowing » x-,
tract, hassir.ee acquired an interest from its con- j
nexton with another Lord Byron, and its fancied in- j
fiuencc upon iiis fate.
We are likely to have another solemn puppet
show, the trial of a Beer. Lord Byron has killed
a Mr. Chaworth in a duel at a tavern. I, who
should like the trial of a Laud or a Stratford, as
a wholesome spectacle now and then, am not in
terested about an obscure Lord, whose birth
alone procures his being treated like an over-!
growu criminal. This quarrel was about game;;
and the very topic should send it to the Quarter
For some time I had nothing to tell you; but
the trial of Lord Byron, a solemn scene for a j
worthless man, but whose former faults had given
handle to ill natnre to represent him as guilty j
of an event which truly it had been very dillicult
for him to avoid. He escaped with life; and re- j
covered some portion of honor, if that can com
fort him after the publicity made of his character,:
and the misfortune of killing an amiable man, j
but one not blamcss in the late instance.
The hero of the day was the famous Colonel j
Barrc—a man, or 1 am mistaken, whose fame;
will not stop here. Ho spoke with iniinito wit j

America. Jf you ever return, as I devoutly

which you never saw a street; without including i

new streets and squares. This was thirty years
