SATURDAY MORNING. Sei-tkmseh 12. 1sr'7
“CANTON ENGLISH”
The elrRant Greek slave io»f >*od lbs l:>n
puasro and his inodes of thought up >n his
barbarous Roman maptor; our eivil-v. d f-hi
Dfse attendant-' have eotutiiuMoat* < '» us
outer barbarians, the syntax of the C.n
r.c-e to. gt e. T! ey have made for ns a new
English l.auguage wherein wolds onto fa
jmlTar to us as English words startle us by
new significations. According to the can
nons of criticism they have well done,—
‘•Pixeris egr^gie, notum si callidd verbum
Kctldulerit junctura novum.”
I! race must have stolen his arts jtoctica
fr. ni Confucius.
Mv friend introduce] me to his comprador,
thu*: ^
“Yju see gentleman—you tawkee one
piecey coolie one piecey boy—larnt pigeon,
yuu savey, no number one foulo—you make
see this geutleman—you make him bouse
pigeon.”
This was said with great rapidity, and in
Div innocence 1 believed that iny triend was
speaking Chinese fluently. He was only
talking “Canton English. lranslatod into
the vernacular it would stand,
“You see this gentleman—you must ec
g '.ge for him a coolie and a boy—people who
understand their business, you know, not
p unid fellows: you will bring them to him,
and then manage to get him a lodging and
furnish it.”
To whom the polite comprador, lender at
t‘ /> ns <“wdainy replied:
••Hub got. I catchee one piecey coolie,
oatchee one piecey boy. House pigeon nuiu
l>f*r or.e doaro; no hab got. Soger mau hab
eatehee hou*e pigeon.”
“Must got.”
“lleuigh.”
The basis of this “Canton English”- -
which is a tongue and a literature, for there
nre dictionaries and grammars to elucidate
it, c insists of turning the “r” into the “1, ’ ad
ding final vowels to every word and a constant
u-e of “savey” for know;“talkee” for “speak
“piecey” tor “piece,” “number one” tor
“hr?t class,” but especially and above all the
continual employment of the word “pige
on.” Cigeon means business in the most
extended sense of the word. “Heaven pige
on hab got” means that church service has
commenced; “Jos pigeon” matins the Lhud
dist ceremonial; Any pigeon canton,
means “Have any operations token plsee at
Cantor.?” “That no boy pigeon, that Coolie
pigeon,” is the form of your servant’s re
monstrance if you a^k him to till your bath
or take a letter. It also means profit, ad
vantage or speculation, “llim NN ang too
much foolo, him nosavey, very good pigeon
hah got,” was the commentary of the Chi*
ijose pilot upon the Fatshan Creek business.
Cntil you can not only speak this lan
gnage fluently, hut also, which is far more
difficult, understand it when spoken rapidly
in a low monotonous voice, ail communica
tion with your servants is impossible.
The second morning after 1 hail been in
stalled in my dwelling, my new “boy,” Ah
L.n, who sleeps on a mat outside my door,
and win in l suspect to live principally upon
successful rat hunts, for he knocks down
about three per diem with a bamboo pole as
they run about the room—this Ah EiD, draw
ing up n»v mu-quito curtains presented me
with the fi o'clock cup of tea, and staring nt
me with his little round eyes gravely remai k
ed, “missa Smith one small piecev cow child
bab got.” It was a long time before 1 com
prehended that, it being part of a “boy’s”
duty to inform his master ot the social events
of the colony, he wished to give me to un
derstand that Mrs. Smith had presented her
liu-hand with a daughter.
It makes a bachelor laugh and an exileu
family man almost cry to hear this grotesque
caricature of the language of the nursery.—

WATERING" PLACES.
The editor of the Fayetteville (X. C) Ob
server being a sojourner at Saratoga Spring-,
X. Y , this season, for the benefit of his health,
has been somewhat annoyed by some at home,
who think he ought to encourage Southern
instead of Northern watering places. In re
ply. he publishes ii\his own paper, along and
well written letter on the subject, the points
of which are deser^ngof general notice, lie
pays that he has been visiting Saratoga for
twenty years past, in consequence of an annu
al biiiious attack, which for several summers
in succession was near carrying him to his
grave. Since he has been going to Saratoga,
he has never had aDy such attack. It is pos
sible he might experience equal relief at the
Virginia Springs, but be has no knowledge ot
the fact, and he docs not see why he, an inva
lid, should go to tryingsuch experiments mere
ly to gratify the sectional prejudices of others.
He alludes rather pointedly to the II Jute Sul
phur Springs, Virginia, where he says that a
complaint made by a guest is answered by the
landlord with a very distinct assurance mat
the complainant is at liberty to go elsewhere,
and that if be gets little to eat, the keeper
cares nothing, as he does not charge for board,
but only for water!
lie goes on to say that squabbles ot tne
visitors with the colored w alters are quite as
common at the Virginia Springs as at the
North. (?)
KDICATIOSAL.
A LEXANDRIA FEMALE SEMINARY.—
The tenth annual session of this Institu
tion will commence on the Kith inst. lhe
School will he conducted in future upon the
same general principles as heretofore, with such
modifications and improvements, as time and
experience have shown to be necessary, the bet
ter to promote the comfort and advancement of
the Pupils. P ^ .
French and Music are taught by a French
Lady, who resides in the family, and who gives
her undivided attention to those branches.

qualified tor their respective duties, gives his
entire time to the care and instruction ot t.ie
