' Breakfast has been a good deal neglected In the literature of gastronomy. The little publication jost Issued by Mr. Bentley. and edited by some dreadful person who actually dres a receipt for dressed crab as a morning dish, Is. we think, the first which has appeared in r.ngusn uevoieu cxciusiTeiy 10 me early merl. The true gourmand indeed t,q fancy rather despises breakfast as a mere arrange raent lor talcing sustenance, lacking entirely that traco of science and sub-flaror of art, and delicate aroma of conviviality, which, by tho consent of cifiliied mankind in all coun tries, attach themselves to dinner. Tho con tempt Is probably Instinctive, for the Aus tralian black In hu natural state cats his early handful of gum or fat Insects standing, and squats at ease only" when the half raw ODOssura Is rcadrfor the afternoon enlov- ment, but It has been deepened by civiliza tion ttu Drcaiciasi naa passea out or tno hands of the gastronome Into those of the doctor. One feeds one's self, and it Knot on feeding that liferary eooks can be tempteel to display the full resources of their art. In India, where coolness Is the ono source of comfort, where sitting Inadra ft Is Elysium and Iced water raises your spirits, and toflco really stimulates, and tho chance of cold meat Is a scparato and Infrequent luxury, and breakfast may be as elaborate as dinner with out costing a farthing or an exertion, social breakfasting Is a recognized habit In England, however, the meal Is eminently ono of utility alone. In very good houses you eat ft In solitnde, or with your wife, at the honr which sujts yourself an arrangement spe cially designed to make good fellowship in trusive, and among tho middle classes busi ness begins too early. Half of us want to be doing something at ten, and a meal at nine and a-lialf, to be eaten while yon are still chilled through, cannot thereforo receive much at tention. A cut of meat and a cup of coITce is considered sufficient, and often too much, for Englishmen rUe too late really to enjoy eating before midday. Not that wo mean to say anything in piuiso of early rismtr. Tho man who asserts in a clmato like this that It Is a virtue to get up at six, and looks at Tou BUaPc0UBy M doubting your morah bo made to wear a hair shirt, or shave with cold water, or uso "mottled' soap, or com iileto his theory of life by some other needless but scii-exaiting lorm ot p&vsicai seir-uemal. Hut still the early riser, uuplensant person as he usually is, has the compensation of hunger, which his more self-Indulgent friend has not. Wo hare known homes where simplicity was carried much farther than this where.thoogh dinner was good, breakfast was utterly neg lected; tho women ate bread and butter and tho men were considered well fed If they got fresh eggs and little scraps of red meat, sup posed by courtesy to be bacon. Such con tempt for humanity Is, however, we are happy to say, becoming rare, and were the question of breakfast only studied with the keenness, ardor, and purity of purposo displayed on tho greater question of dinner, would speedily be extinct Of course any real reform on the point must arise from a development of tho Inward consclouincps, a cultivation of tho latent conscience of tho stomach, but a (rood deal of external aid can be gained from Mr. Uentlej's little brochure. lie fore breakfast can assume its proper place among the subjects of art, it Is neces sary to decide what its central idea should be. and not only Its central Idea, but the central idea apphcahlo to Tngland. Hearing in mind that such of our count rj men as arc capable of distinguishing between eating and eeaing. wno wouia describe "skilley. Tor Instance, as food, but not as breakfast, aro fcoplo who will not waste morning time, the dea of breakfast should, we think, be tho provision which host fortifies men for tho labor of a lonir day. Women need not be considered, for they get a good midday meal, nhich Is to them not unpleasant, for the chil dren are about, and there Is an Interval be tween household supervision and visiting, and by a beneficent provision of nature they arc exempt from the temptations to gour mandizc. Few women worth a straw cure a straw what they eat, and as few men do not care. To the fast day of their lives the best and clevercBt women will eat the horrid imi tations of sponge called buns, and for those, who can cat buns with a relish gastronomy is an Impertinence. Tho objet t is to qualify men for work, and breakfast therefore must consist mainly of eatable solids cold. Of solids, meat and bread uro of course the best, vegetables being forbidden, first, because they ought to bo eaten the moment they are ready, and punctuality at breakfast Is an abominable oppression; secondly, be cause the smell of all vegetables haunts a house ; and thirdly, because, except tho potato, they do not strengthen, and break fast Is the doctor's meal. Kterv variety of cold meat, cold game, potted meat, potted game, poticu usii, ami those things winch though meats are not usually called meat, tongue, brawn, boar's head, pickled poultry a luxury absurdly neglected and ham, arc good for tho higher objects of breakfast flho best are probably the potted things, and meats which are not meat, because they tempt men to eat bread, tho best of ull food. and for two reasons too much ao.dtd b) the well-to-do. They learn to liku fiaor, and bread by itself is very iUvorlc uud it is the custom in Engl ana to bake bread in the worst possible way, m such masses that tho body of the loaf is a soft, spongy, white mast, very httlo moro edible tiuin a bun Very good wives will lot their husbands 'poel tho loaf," but c en they will not let nn body else, and so tho poor men who would oat cruet I e , good wheat (lour properl) baked aro forced cither to mt flotr afl raw or ubandon tho bread for solid meat I'llddlne;! pf all kinds aro an abomination, und Mr. Jltntley's editor ought to be ushamtd of himself for inserting them in his list, In. ilted ho is ashamed of them, for tho ehapter lioidod " I'ltdduiBs" is lllltd with ruoliits for meat, cheises. und the mculiarlv nastv iifrglomeratiQn of ihopped incut siretted in little bags ol entrail callul suusages tneese is banished from Kuglish breakfast tables, though retained in Ilullund and Borne parts of Italy, und Its exclusion seims to bo based upon nothing moro important than a i,s. ing fashion.

Dut tho interview revealed the fact that marked differences existed between two branches upon on6 of Iho most Important iiihlccts presented for consideration. We do not tare to notice tho various ru mors that are prevalent as to the character of these disagreements. Most of them ore mere creations of fancy, and are quite as nieeiy 10 00 laisc as true 100 main Issue is undoubtedly negro suffrage. Stevens, with others of his class, contends for unrestricted franchise, but he it not thus far ablo to bring 1 majority to his views. One fatt is putent: The important legisla tion of tin country should no longer be re arded by leaving it in tho bunds of this ommittce. Heretofore, all questions re ating to reconstruction have bi en referred in it. One report won made by It under iressure, but it has succeeded in preventing iction ev en upon that, thus far. Meanwhile tho nation awaits, with eager rxpr ctancy, the promulgation of tome definite line of policy, upon Which sentiment and action can be concentrated. It ought not to be asked to wait onger.

At all ev cuts, giv 0 us a policy, and perplex us no longer with vague controversies or indetermi nate generalities.

Iho wild lettuce, as well as l)e cultivated, was used medicin ally by the Ilomans, and l'aladius, a Greek physician, notices their culture in his treatise on fevers. We find no attempt to cultivate the lettuce in England until tho fourth year of Queen Elizabeth's reign, 1362; but 111 1A9T llirurd gives us an account of eight kinds of leltmc that were then cultivated in England. He says: "Lettuce makes a pleasant salad, eaten raw, with viuecar. oil. and a little salt: but if it bo boiled, it is sooner digested and iiourisholh more." He adds: "It Is served in these days and in these countries at tho be ginning of supper, and eaten first before any other meat, but notwithstanding, it may now and then bo eaten at both these times, to tho health of tho body; for taken before incut it doth many times stir tin the appetite: and eaten ufter supper it keepeth away drunken ness, wiucu.
