Tho late naval order, which origina ted willi Mr. Secretary Paulding, com pelling naval ollioers, &. to shave olT the hair on their laces, leaving only n moderate whisker, which gives grace to a handsome countenance instead of producing hideousness, has attracted much aitentioi), and has induced us, for the edification of ihe sufferers, and our readers generally, to look into the sub ject of beards and whiskers; and we now give the result of our cogitations and researches. Beards have been regarded with dif ferent feelings, by dill'erent nations and tribes, in all ages. Hy some people they have been considered an ornament and cherished with care; by others they have been regarded a an undesi rable exereseence, which tin uU be shaven nil", or extirpated in some other way. Hoards have alwavs been worn, or trimmed, according to the prompt ings of taste or convenience; accord ingly as a people were elleminate, sa vage, ferocious, or civilicd and polite. The ancient Jews wore beards of "-real length, and the ( !yiiiiio.-:o,hists, or old Indian sages, looked upon a long beard as a mark of wisdom, and were there fore particularly solicitous to have beards of a venerable length. The an cient Assyrians and Pcisians also pri ded themselves on the length of their beards, and we. are toid that the Kings of Persia were wont to interweave gold threads with their boards, which gave them a brilliant and magnificent appearance. J The Mohomedatis have always worn their beards unmutilated indeed, they make this an important point in their religion, for Mahommed never shaved the hair on his chin, and it is said that the Tartars once waged a long and sanguinary war with their neighbors, the Persians, regarding them as iuiidels, because they would not cut their beards after the Tartarian fashion. It U even now a custom iu the Cast, to throw sweet-scented water on the beards of their guests, i:i order to give them an agreeable perfume; and wives salute their husbands and children their fathers, by kissing the beard. The ancient LI reeks and Romans held tho beard in great eneration, and we are informed by Homer, that the beards of King Priam and the vic Nestor were of Royal size, and hs white as snow. Plutarch, however, tell us, that Alexander the Great compelled his Ma cedonian soldiers to shave their chins close, lost their llowing Is.-ards might give a handle to the eoemy in the day of brittle. But in the time of Justinian, long beai d came again into fashion, and continued until Constantinople wa captiued by the 1 urks. In ancient and modern times, the fa shion of wearing the beard, like all o ther fashions, has undergone great vi cissitudes. The Lombards, who inva ded Italy, were remarkable for the length of their beards, and hence their name, I.ongihardi. The Anglo-Sax ons wore long beards until the Normans possessed themselves of the country, when William tho conqueror compelled them to cut oil' all their beards, "that thoy might resemble civilh.ed beings." This w as resisted, and protested against as an act of tyranny, but in vain. Tho Russians have ever been wearing the entire beard tn lavor ut i Peter the! . (ireat tried to bring about a reform, bt only partially succeeded nlthoti;ii he ordered his subjects to cut mf their beards, or pay a h ivy fn:e. At this day, tho ptasaiiK, nn l,' indeed, nearly every person in the rmpire, evcepiing the soldiPi-.s nn I the sailors, mid nil o thers '.'I I lit i ie mo. I ' In in ii -ill i vment itf . 1 . . g(J' ernmeiit, never shave oil their ! . .. . .. . . .. , t-eards, and a disgusting, lilthy looking set they are, too. Iii the middle ages, a long beard w as in irreat reoute in some of thn Kurooe- nn States.

VII. i t Bll SSjWstsii ftl ed him, was a beardless youth the lashion elianged; and betirds were pro scribed entirely, or reduced to the insig nificant size of whiskers. During the reign of Louis the XIV., w hiskers were all tho fashion; and were highly pri zed by lureune, Londe, Colbert txo. Even the King wore a goodly pair of whiskers, lis that age cf gaiety and gallantry, much pains were bestowed to make the whiskers captivating. In Portugal the bean! was formerly suf fered to grow, and a long beard, or a good pair of bushy whiskers, were re garded as a treasure! Indeed, it is said that the famous Juan de Castro once pledged one ol his w hiskers, as the best t security ho could give the citizens ol L.oa, tor the repayment of a sum ol mo-' ney. which he had borrowed lor the use of his licet. The people, hewever, re lying on his honor, requested him to re tain both the money and the w hiskers. In these days it is the custom, we believe, in all parts of Kurope, except ing Turkey and Russia, to shave ihe beard. Tho military still wear the mustache, w hich, as it gives a fierce ness to the expression, is much prized by men, who w ish to gain a reputation for courng?. which it is possible they may not really deserve. The size and appearance ot the w hiskers seem to he hardly under the dominion of fashion ; they are regulated according to the taste or whim of the individual ; but a chevalier who wears immen?e w hiskei s and mustachios, although he may be ns harmless as Captain Uobadil, is guie.'al ly regarded as deficient in taste and re finement, in tints trying to resemble in his person the idea generally conceived of a bully, a brigand, or a pirate. To sha ve oli'the beard isjusily sup posed to conduce to clean, me-s ; a. id we believe that there has been a stand ing regulation in the army for years, that no ollicer or soldier should wear whiskers, excepting of a limited sie ; and no beard beneath the chin. This legulatiori has been recently adopted in the navy; and it soems to be requi red, as some cf the oll.cers and seamen evince a strong disposition to cultivate their beards, w hiskers and must.ichi.is, to a degree which excites the wonder, or ridicule, of persur.s it(, tal e a dif ferent view of the rudder, and gives them u;i appearance ahroiid, by no means ercoi.'ni'io t their country cr piofesion.
