To-day at Fame exercises in the S.i-tine Chapel, I saw Hon Miguel. He is n very inmd broking man. He now lives at Albino, fifteen miles from Home, whither he has been banish i ed by the Pope, While fie was in power in Portugal, he btvi.-hr.d his wealth on the Pope, who now, in return, supports him on a salary, it is said, of -S'-'O.OilO. The cruise of Ins banish ment was tin insult ofl'ercd to the Wife of Prince Rirghese, one of the lirst families in the Papal dominions.

His ac quirements it lone have btaiiie I fiir bitu n ' tr niuai's bat and Post Muster; l.tp of Rome. Tin; Pope attributes his knowledge ot bin gtinges to a miraculous gilt. Conversing to day w.th a priest ou the nibject n friend of .Mezzufimti he told me th.it .MezjVifonti him- j self attributes bis power in acquiring languages l" 'he divine influence. I Ie says that w hen an obscure priest, in the North ( f Italy, he was j called one day to confess two foreigners con-' demned lor piracy, who were to be executed j next day. On entering their cell he found i them umible to understand a word be uttered, i i Overwhelmed with the thought that the crimi nals should leave this world without the bene fits of religion, be returned to his room resolved to acquire their language before morning. I lo accomplished bis task, and next day confessed them in their own tongue. From that time on, he says, he has hud no difficulty in mastering the most difficult lanjfimge. The purity of his BUKY A AND SHAMOK1N JOUUNAL; majority, the vital principle of Republic, from which tSunlMiry, IVoiCiiiinbcrluuil Co. motive in tlio first placo, he thinlip, infl'ir.nrod the Deity to assist him niirticnrnisly. A Khort time finer a Sttivhr, who could Fpotik a patois peculiar to a certain province of Sweden, called on Iiini, and nilurrFseil him in that diuleet. Merznliititi had never heard it before, and seemed very much interested. Ho invited him to call cm him often, w hich he did, w hile the cnnver.:ilion inviinnb'y turned on this dialect. AtleujTth tho Swede called one day, heard himself, to his nmnzemenf, addressed in thin " "l p"",s' 10 mqnireu ol Ilie Car.ttnal who had been his mnater, fur ho tllOU'rht, he i said, there was no man in IJome who would speak that language but himself. "I have had i no one," he replied, "but yourself I Nr.i:u fiirp-rl a ictml 1 hrnr onee." It this be true, be Ins a mirwtttoits innnnry at all events. This the priet 'old mo he had from Mey.;' lfm ti himself- At home this would be headed ' '-Strange if true." I forgot to say, while Fp"ik!ng of the cere iimny of w ishing the pilgrims' feet, that there is a st partite apartment in the same budding for tho females, and that princes are mnio times seen engaged in this menial ollice. J-very (ine so washed receies a cerlilieate of it, mid ! if lie wishes, a mi ihil enl itling him la bra. I wandered through the apartment with feelings half sad half comical. In one room, previous i to the ceremony of washimr the feet, they were all assembled before a bhich .i'f,fi;r;ir, atnl fitteh miserable looking objects ! never witnessed.

One little fellow in particu lar attraL-led my notice. He was ii-jit frighten cd and half roguei.-h ; uud between the curious, gaze of the spectators-, the odd position lie was in, nnd Ihe Cardinal in his awful robes at his feet ; his countenance had a hall' sacred, I. all comic look, nnd his eya rolled from the Cardi nal to the spectators, rind back again in such (tieer bewilderment that il quite upset inv gra vity and I indulged in one of Leather StoekintjV long silent laughs. 7Voi thr I'nitrtl Service J.'iiruul.

It's general ly allowed the finest weather in the world is in America there aint the beat of it to be found any where. He then lighted a cigar, nnd throwing himself back on his chr.ir, put both feet out of the window, and sat with his arms folded, a perfect picture of happiness. You appear, said 1, to have travelled over tlw whole of this Province, and to have observ ed the country and the people with much at tention, pray what is your opinion of the pre sent state antl future prospect of Halifax 1 If I yon will It'll, said he, when the folks there will wake up, then I can answer you, but they aro fast asleep; as to the Province, it's a splendid province, nnd calculated to go ahead ; it will j grow as fast b a Varginy gal, and they grow so aninzin fast, it you put your arm round ono of j their necks to kiss them, by the time you're done, they're grown up into women. It's a pret ty Province I tell you, good above and better be'ow ; surface covered with pastures, meadows, wixils, and a nation sight of water privileges, nnd under ground full of mines it puts me in mind o! the soup at the TVcr-tnont house. i One day I was walking in the Mall, and who should I meet hut Major Bradford, a gen tleman from Connecticut, that traded in calves and pumpkins for the I?ostc.:i market. Says he, S ick, where do yr u get your grub to-day ! At ("ieneral Peep's tavern, savi I Only fit for nigger-, Fays he : why don't you cotr.c to the 7'ifc niout bouse, that's the niOit splendid thing generally allowed in ail the v.-orld. Why, says 1, that's a notch above my mark, I guess it's too plapy dear for me, I can't afford it no hovv. Well, says he, it's dear in one sense, but its dog cheap in ano'.her its a grand place for a speculation there's so many rich southern ers and strangers there that have more money than wit, that you might do a pretty good busi i.rss there without goin out of the street door. I made tw o hundred dollars this mornin in little less than half no time. There's a Curo- ! lioa lawyer there, ns rich as a bank, and savs he to me nrter breakfast.

Well, I gets near the Major at table, and n. lore me stood a ch'na utensil with two handii :, ,, 0p solip about the size of a foot tub, wHii a iHreo BC00p jn it near about 8S aa a ladle ct a maple sugar kettle. I was just a bout bailing out some soup into my dish, wbr l the Major said, flsh it up from the bottom. Slick, well, sure enough, I fgives it adra.j from the bottom, and up como the fat piecr of turtle, nnd the thick rich soup, nnd n sig' t of little forced meat balis. No poul could tell how geod it was it was near about as hand sum as father's old genuine particular cider, and that you could feel tingle clean awny down to the tip rends of your toes. Now, pays the Major, I'll giv.3 yon, Slick, a nevr wrinkle on your horn. Folks nint thought nothing of, unless they live at Treemont : it's all the go. Do you dine at Teep's tavern every day, and then riff hot foot to Trcemon!, and pick pour teeth on the street steps '.here und folks will think you dine there. 1 do il often, and it saves two dollars a day. Then he put his finger on his nose, and says lie, "Mum is the u ord." Now th is Province is jint like that are roup, good enough at fop, but dip down and you have the riches, the coal, the iron ore, thj gypsum, and what not. The only thing thiit will either nmke or save Halifax is a rail road nctoss the country to Bay efFtindy. It will do to tall; of, says one ; Vou'il scj it some cay, says another ; Yes, says a third, it will come but we aro too young yet. Our old minister had a darter, a real clever looking gal as you'd see in a day's ride, anil sue had two or three offers of marriage from sponsib'c men most particular good Fpec? but minister always said, "Phoebe, you are too young tho day will come but you are to,j young yet, dear." Well, Phccl.e did'nt think I H, Bt all ; ehe said, she guessed she knew bet- ter nor that ; so the next oiler ehc had, she said she had no notion to lose another chance o:V the sot to Rhode Island and got married ; says she, Father's too old, he don't know. That's jist Ihe case at Halifax. Tho old folks say t fir country is too young the lime will come, tin 1 so on ; and in the mean time thu young folk won't wait, ai'l run cfi' to the State, win, ', the maxim iV "i;n:ilh is th-' time for improi -mciif ; a new country is nricr foo yetrig r exirlioii push on herp moiin gouluail." Ham it all, said the clockmiker, rising wii'i ! good for nothing, do-little critters they aint ft to tend a bear trap, I vow. They ought to be qtiil'ed round and round a room, li!;j a liuly's lap dog the mutter of two hours a day, to keep them from dyin of apoplexy. Iliuh, hush.EP.id I, Mr. Siick.you forget.

"At the first levee which he lieh!,ei ly the civil, military, and Kuropeaii gentlemen werti ptesented, many native gentleman wh went, being requested to retire, as they were not to be pretenled then, but at a Dunbar to be held o'l a future day. Accordingly, they then went in great state ; and, as is the cus tom at a native Dunbar, they presented ric.'i silver salvers, with large smus ol' money, on which he (Jovernor ought on'y to place his hand, as noticing them, the whole being return ed untouched to the owner. Instead of this, his lordship had a per in in aitend uico with a large bag, and when the money was presented, instead of his lordship patting his hand upon it as usual, he desired the attendant to big it hll, and senJ it all to tho Treasury.
