In cxarnining attentively the tine person
of this individual, on whose will hangs the.
fate of so many others, I have remarked with:
involuntary pity, that he cannot smile at the
same' trme-uith the : 'eye's and the mouth; a
want of ' harmony which "denotes-perpetual
constraint, and makes one remember, with re
gret, that easy, natural grace, ro conspicuous
in the less regular but more agreeable counte
nance- of his brother, the emperor Alexander.
The latter always pleasing, bad : yet at times,
an assumed manner. "The' Lmperor -Nicolas
is more sincere; but he has an habitual ex
pression of severity, which sometimes gives
the idea of harshness and 'intlexibiljty. lf,-
Tiowevcr, he is less fascinating, he' is. more
firm thanius brother; but then, it must be ad
ded, that he has also a proportionately greater
need' 'of firmness. Graceful courtesy insures
authority by removing the. desire of resistance
This' judicious economy in the. exercise of
poxyer is a secret of which the Emperor 2s ie
olas'i'i ignorant ; he is one who desires to ,le
obeyed where others desire to be loved."

Intemperance in Congresn. y
Gerritt Smith in his address to his constitu
ents says that "as the ' friend of temperance
both my lips and example shall ever testify
against any night session of Congress, that is
not called for by the clearest necessity." '
- T was present part of the night session in
which the final vote on the Nebraska bill wa3
taken ; and I was well convinced that Congress
should avoid all unnecessary night sessions un
til Congress loves temperance more, and rum
less. Never did I Witness more gross drunk
enness than I witnessed on that occasion. I
had to remain until 11 o'clock for I hadTto
remain until I could record my vote against
the pro-slavery bill. After that I hurried
awav, full of shame and sorrow.
'It so happened that Lord Elgin, the Gov
ernor of Canada, sat by my side, for an bourorr
more, during that evening of sad recollections.
The drunkenness was perceived by him as well
as by myself. I might rather say, it glared
upon his observation, as well as upon my own.
It was certainly very kind and polite in him to
tell me, as he did, in the course of our con
versation respecting this disgraceful ;scene,
that he bad witnessed shameful disorder in the
British Parliauieiit. Nevertheless his polite
ness and kindness-did not relieve me of my
deep mortification.' '" . -.-vi-i
