The Sovereigns of Europe.
Although it is usual to hear that Roy
alty is daily becoming less agreeable to the
people of this and other countries, it is wor
thy of remark'that at no period, during the
last cenuiry, has there been so many sover-_
eig'hs, whether absolute or constitutional anx

will and secure the affections of their sub

Was there ever a King of England less dis
tinguished by unworthy hauteur, or more fa
miliar with, the habits of his people—less
despotic in his character, or more desirous ol
honorable p pularity. In the early part of
his life, Wili am the Fourth mixed with the
pet p'.e as one of themselves. After he came
<n the throne, he went among them freely
until he found, by sail experience, that in the
present state of national education, the lower
orders are not so well informed but .that the
old adage, ml "too much familiarity breeds
contempt," is verified in every act of inter
course between them and their superiors.
In France, Louis-PItillippe, who had for
some time before itis accession to ihe throne
been regarded ns /'ami du peuple enme to the
throne as le Rio Citoyen, and hi
maintained the character. He lias neglected
no opportunity of studying the wants tf his
people; and, in proof that he considered
himself above his subjects only in virtue of
his high office, he allowed the heir to the
throne to carry a musket in the National
Guards, and to perf rm all the duties of a
private, regardless of his birth and of his
near relationship to the sovereign. Louis
Philippe does not, it is true, make a parade
of his.condescension, as Napoleon did, in re
ceiving petitions from the .bands of his sub
jects, which are destined newer,to .be answer

Leopold, King of Belgium, is the next Sov

worthily. On erming to the throne of Bvlgi

and the officers of his household, those Belgi

with their fellow-countrymen, preferring ti

Solicited by one of his funner confidential at

the King of England, lie made it a rule not to

His affection for his grandson, Napoleon,
considering the injuries which he had re
ceived from thc father, proved that he did
not allow political prejudices to interfere
with the feelings of nature. In his personal
habits, tlie Emperor of Austria is unostenta

ago, to an English gentleman who had an
audience of the Emperor at Vienna, 'I could
be sure that the Poles would establish

to respect the rights of the people, so far as

freedom would convey any advantage except

are, I fear, better offin their state of subjec

their national independence were to he re
cognised.' Such, we are assured, are the
sentiments of the Austrian Emperor respect

the establishment of a free constitution im
practicable in Poland, we do not attempt to
decide; but we believe that if one were estab

Poles under his di minion.

The following article is from the Rich
mond Whig, we copy it because we think
that great injustice has beep done to that emi
nent statesman, by by the silence of his
friends and the clamors of Jxis enemies. The
editor of the Whig is not an advocate for Mr.
Clay, as the candidate for any office; nor do
we know that he is desirous of doing more by
his commendations, than to give an honest
man his deserved praise. In copying the
piece, we have only in view the promulgation
of sentiments which vve think correct, and
lire move extensive circulation of a deserved
commendation of a man, who has earned tor
himself a fame, beyoil.l infinitely beyond that
of the Roman Curtins. — 17. -S'. Gazette.
Wc sait} on a late occasion, that Mr. Clay
"had lived down slander," ami in the same
article, that we had once hoped the gratitude
of Virginia and her sense of the injustice site
had done him, would have prevailed with
her to take him up as her candidate for the
next Presidency—but that "slander hail sunk
too deep" and "had done its work too well,"
for the realization of this hope.
The "wise wight" of the Baltimore Re
publican, and after him the snivelling drivil
ler of the Richmond Enquirer, pretend in
these expressions to see an irreconcilable dis
crepancy, and the latter proceeds to deduce
the conclusion, of how little credit the editor
of this paper is entitled to, in consequence
There is however, no contradiction what
ever, in fact. Mr. Clay has "lived down
slander." Those whose daily habit once
was to abuse him—who, conscious of his un
popularity, gratified their malevolence, while
they replenished their pockets, and filled
their subscription lists, by heaping upon him
every coarse and rancorous epithet, do so no
longer. They like Mr. Clay no better than
bef mejthey even dislike him more,for snatch
ing from their idol, the glory of pacifying his
country; but they are judicious gentlemen,

pleasure was in tormenting others; his
own family was generallly the butt ol his
sport. , . , ,
One cold and blustering night, he re
tired to bed at an early hour, his wife
being absent at a neighbor's. Sometime
after, she returned; finding the doors
closed, she demanded admittance.
Who are you, cried Mr. H.
You know who I am, let me in, it is
very cold. , , T

Begone! Mrs. H. is a very likely wo

Mrs. H. Replied ii you do not let me
in, I will drown myself in the well.
Do if you please, he replied.
She then took up a log and plunged it
the well and retired to the side of
the door.
Mr. II hearing tbe noise rushed from
the house to save, as he supposed, his
drowning wife. She at the same time slip
ped in, and closed the door after her—
Mr. A. almost naked, in turn deman

Who are you she demanded.
You know who 1 am, let me in, or I
shall freeze.

nothing of you here.
But 1 must come in.

You know, my name it is Mr. H.

Eire Proof Cement. —The French
cement for the roofs of houses, to pre
serve the wood anil protect it from fire,
is made in the following manner:
Take as much lime as is usual in ma
king a pot full of whitewash, and let it
be mixed in a pai' full of water; in this
put two ami a half pounds of brown su
gar, and three pounds of fine salt; mix
them well together, and tbe cement is
completed. A little lampblack, yellow
ochre, coloring commodity, may be in
troduced to change. the color of the ce
ment, to please the fancy of those who
use it. It lias been used with great suc
cess, and been recommended particularly
as a protection against fire. Small sparks
of fire, that frequently lodge on the roofs
of houses, are prevented by this cement
from burning the shingles. So cheap
and valuable a precaution against the
destructive element night not to pass un
tried. Those who wish lo be better sat
isfied of its utility can easily make the ex
periment,by using ti on a small temporal
