"Previous to the departure of Baron de Staël from Sweden, he was enamoured of his second cousin, a beautiful girl, whom he had promised to marry: Hut after the offers re ceived by him from the Neckar family, lie wrote to inform her ot the peculiar cir cumstances in which he was placed, and that his union with a lady whom lie did not love, would be the means of raising his family from poverty and obscurity. His cousin, without any other answer, returned him his marriage promise stained with her tears, and in seven weeks she was a corpse." "Even to fiause on such a thought! How could it cross his mind! j Vain honors traffic'd for and bought, With happiness resigned! Ami love like mine cast meekly by, At cold ambition's call— My heart, becalm!—why should I sigh! Tears, tears, why will you fall? The Sweedish girl should scorn to stand 'Tween him and his adopted land. For him what could I not have borne, Wliat wo or poverty!

A competent knowledge of the serve to guide any one in the common walks oflile, wherever lie may be thrown; more especially, if he carry with him the cardinal maxim of good breeding, every where a wish to please, and unwilling ness to offend. But if, even in private society, there arc rules not to be known but by experience, and if these differ in ameiv-t places, I could not firs! insensi ble to the approach of an occasion so new to me. My first desire was not to fail in the public duties of my mission; the next, to pass properly through the scenes of official and personal ceremony, jo which it exposed me. At the head of them, was my introduction to the sov I ere'S 1 ' - I desired to do all that full res t required, but not more: yet—the cx t ern al observances of it—what were they? They defy exact definiton before-hand, From the these ■otld may 67 93 pcc and 1 never seen them, restraints, too, that prevail in spheres, lapses, if you fall into them, are little apt to be told to you, which increa ses'youi' solicitude to avoid them. I had, sonic ot" my intercourse, caught the impression, that simplicity was consider ed best adapted to such an introduction; Eli a also, that the Prince Regent was not lliought to be fond of set speeches. This was all that I could recollect. But sim plicity, all know, is relative idea. Of ten it is attainable, in the right sense,on- his ly through the highest art, and on full experience. as I arrived before the hour appointed. My carriage having the entre, or right to the. private entrance, I went through St. James's Park, and got to Carlton House by the paved way, through the gardens. Even this approach was alrea dy filled. I was'set down at a side door where stood servants in the Prince's liv- he Gaining the hall, persons were Among them of the guard with halberts dsj they Had velvet hats with wreaths round them, and rosettes in their shoes. From the court yard, which open ed through the columns of a fine portico, bands of music were heard. Carriages, stream, were approaching by this through the double gates that sep crated the royal residence from the street, The companv arriving by this access, in entered through the portico, and turned off to the right. I went to the left, through ! a vestibule, leading to other rooms, in to which none went hut those having the entre.— These consisted of cabinet minis ters the diplomatic corps, persons in chief employment about the court, and a few others, the privilege heiijg in high esteem. Knights of the Garter appeal ed I to have it, for I observe 1 their insigni round the knee of several. There the lord steward with his badge of office; the lord chamberlain with his gold stick, and silver stick.

The walls were covered with paintings. If these were historical, so were the rooms. As I looked through them I thought of the scenes described by Doddington; of the Pelhams, the Bol inghrokes, the Hillsboroughs; or the an ecclotes and personalities of the English courtaud cabinet in those days. The Prince had not yet left his apartment, H»\r on 1mm.Kv wWxr, RI- Uni»-* Chester, master of ceremonies, said to me, that in a few minutes he would con duct me to the Prince.

Opening it, he left me. I entered alone. The Prince was standing, with Lord Cas tlercagh by him. No one else was in the Holding in my hand the letter of credence, I approached, as to a private gentleman, and said in the common tone of conversation, that it was "from the President of the United States, appoint ing me their Envoy Extraordinary and Minister Plenipotentiary at the court of his Royal Highness; and that 1 had been up. directed by the Piesident to say, that I could in no way better serve the United States or gain his approbation, than by using all my endeavours to strengthen and prolong understandings that happily sub sisted between the two countries." The Prince took the letter and handed it to Lord Casllereagh. He then said, that he would "ever he ready on his part to act upon the sentiments I had expressed: that I might assure the President of this, and that he sincerely desired to keep up and improve the friendly relations subsisting between the two nations, which he re garded as so much to the advantage of both." I replied, that 1 would not fail to do so. The purpose ofthe interview seeming to be accomplished, I had supposed it would here end, and was about to with draw; but the Prince prolonged it. He congratulated me on my arrival.— lie in quired for the health of Mr. Adams, and spoke of others who had proceeded me in the mission, going hack as lar as the first Of him,and Mr. King, lie made room. for out a in at in so to the Mr Piuckney. his inquiries" were minute, others, which it gave me still more plea sure to answer. He asked if 1 knew the ladies from my country, then in England, wbohad madesuch favorable impressions in their society, naming Mrs. Patterson, since Marchioness of Wellesley, and her sisters, the Miss Catons of Maryland, replied that 1 did, and responded to his gratifying noticeoflhese my fair country women. A few more remarks on the cli mate of the two countries, clqsed the au I dience. It would be out of place in me to por tray the exterior qualities ol this mon arch. The commanding union ol them has often been a theme in his owndomin He was then in his fifty-sixth y ear; io' ls * . . • but in fine health maintaining the erect, ambitious carriage of early hie. 1 will only say, that he made lus audience ot loreign ministers a pleasureable duty them, instead of a repulsive ceremony. The envoy extraordinary and minister i tmliary from Sicily and Naples, are had, the to plemp Count Ludolf, had his reception imme diately after mine, When the Prince came from his apart* ment, called in the language of palaces his closet, into the entre rooms, I pre sented to him Mr. John Adams Smith, as public secretary of the legation, and Mr. Ogle Tayloe, as attached to it per sonally.—Other special presentations took place; among them, that of the Prince of Hesse Homberg, by Lord Stew art both distinguished in the then recent battles of the continent. The Prince Regent moved about these rooms, until he had addressed every body, all await ing his salutation. Doors hitherto shut, now opened, when a new scene appeared, You beheld, in a gorgeous mass, the com puny that had turned off to the right, The opening of the doors was the signal for the commencement of the general levee. I remained with others to see it. All passed, one by one, before the Prince, each receiving a momentary salutation, To a few he addressed conversation, but chiefly, as it stopped the line. All were in rich costume. Men of genius and science were there; the nobility were nu ! merous; so were the military. There were from forty to fifty generals; perhaps as many admirals, with throngs o-' officer»-.,, of rank inferior—I remarked upon the number of wounded. Who is th- tjdf asked, pallid but with a countenan-e lo animated? "That's General Walker," I was told, "who was pierced With bay onets whilst leading on the assault at Ba dajos;" and lie,close by,fall but limping? "Colonel Ponsonby; he was left for dead at Waterloo; the cavalry it was thought had trampled u-pon him." one of like port, but deprive I of a leg. As he moved slowly onward, the whisper went, "That's Lord Anglesea." A fourth j had been wounded at Seringapatam; a (fifth nt Talpvpi«»! snmp harl suffered in' -:-- - — - | Egypt; some in America, those who had received scars on thedeclc with Nelson; others who carried them from the days of Howe.—One, yes one, had fought at Saratoga.

They had earned a title to come before their sovereign^nd read in his recognition their country s approbation.

For so it is, other nations chiefly fight on or near their own territo ry; I be English every where. Taking the whole line perhaps a thou sand must have passed. Its current flowed through the entre rooms, got on ward to the vestibule, and was finally dispersed in the great hall, whereit stood ill glittering groups & fragments. Those who composed them, found themselves there by a course reverse to that of their entrance, and went away through the grand portico, as their carriages came I Then came' of up. I —>.ieee«. From the Portland Ev'ng Advertiser, July o. THE SEA SERPENTS AND THE STEAM BOAT, The steamer Connecticut arrived this mor ning later than usual, having been employed for about an hour in chasing a shoal of Sea Serpents. About six o'clock last evening, a schooner off Nahunt hailed the Connecticut, and told Captain Porter that if he would look out he might see the Sea Serpent for 'lie bore east of Nahimt.' The Connecticut steered accordingly, three, some sav four, appeared in sight. All the passengsrs saw these monsters of the deep with their Own eyes, distinctly and clearly. ' One of the passengers who had a good view, says, that one ofthe serpents was one hundred feet in length—with a head partly in the form of a snake and paitly in the form of a pickerel. Some say this largest serpent was yet longer. Another of the serpents was judged to be about 90 feet long. One threw liia liobv out of water about fifty feet in a spiral undulatory motion, which formed at times apon a calm sea a beautiful dark arch. During a portion of this time, one of the serpents was thought to be distant about 20 t oils. And before and after this near ap proach, they could be seen for some time with a glass. The serpents seemed to enjoy the sport, and played around the boat for sometime—perhaps they took it for anoth er " Sar/ient" in or on the deep—and were seeking an introduction. *" Of all these facts, wc are informed by ma ny pet sons, verbally by one, upon whom we can rely—and who has hitherto been credu lous enough. We do not, we cannot doubt the testimony of so mnny persons, in a steam boat upon a quiet sea,—with the power of stopping and following the objects of their curiosity whithersoever they pleased.
