Lola Montez on "John Bull at Home."
The notorious Lola, the darlin' daughter of
Limerick, leotured, an evening or two slnco,
in New York, before a orowded audience, very
few of whom were ladles. She Is thus re
ported in one of the Eastern papers:
She admitted the sterling worth of the Eng
lish character, and professed a hearty aii'ec.
tion for bluff, honest John Bull. .But, like
everybody else, he had his weaknesses, and
bub claimed tne privilege ot taking a peep at
the oomio side of his character. ' America
till1 reverentially calls ,Englaud "Mother,"
and each may be proud of the relationship.
roe two nations are too muon antte to allow a
traveler in either to make a book regarding
the differences between - the. people; hence
tourists are forced to look about them for oc-
centrio peoojiarlliee. Taking these for their
illustrations, English peoplehare formed some
queer ideas of Americans, " Dickens .found a

Tne tsngnsn are an active, energetio, busi
ness people, and it is no metaphor to lay that:
"England is the workshop of the world'. An
Englishman's walk and general 'bearing al
ways indicate that he is going somewhere,
and that he is going to do something when be
gets there. , For trading, traflicing.eoheming,
and' energetic enterprise, Englishmen have
never been 'surpassed, and never equalled,
except by Americans. Our "isms" and our
"notions," ehe said, are not original Yankee
institutions, but are improvements' upon En
glish characteristics. The English called ns
a nation of quacks, but in all her travels and
experience she never saw so- much quackery
as is to be found in England.
She had aeon London placarded wilh quack
advertisements of "Love Powders," of prepa
rations for making all enrts of people beau
tiful, and of "Anodyne neoklaoes" for children
cutting toeth, the use of which wonld bring
the teeth through without trouble or pain.

folbjes to be found In John Boll's character,

Fbrry Affair. The last tumber of Frtd

the fugitive editor, who has arrived safely in
England. Douglass confesses that hit sudden
ourney was undertaken In fear of arrest: '
"It is probahlr oulte well known that I
