Mb. Disraeli Described bv H imself .—An English paper re prints an extract from Disraeli's "Tancred," published in 1847, as an exact description of the present premier : Find a man who, totally destitute of genius, possesses nevertheless con siderable talents; wba has official aptitude, a volubility of routine rhet oric, great perseverance, a love of affairs ; who, embarrassed neither by tbe principles of the, philosopher,nor by the prejudices of the bigot, can assume, with a cautious facility, the prevalent tone, and disembarrass himself of it with a dexterous am biguity the moment it ceases to be predominant, recommending himself to the innovator by hie approbation of change "in the abstract," and tft the conservative by bis prudential and practical respect for that which is established ; such a man, though he be one* of an essentially small mind, though his intellectual quali ties be less than moderate, with fee ble powers of thought, no imagina tion, contracted sympathies, and a most loose public morality, Such a man is the individual whom kings and parliaments would select to gov ern the state or rule the church. Change, "in the abstract," is what is wanted by a people who are at the same time inquiring and wealthy. Instead of statesmen they desire shufflers ; and compromise in conduct and ambiguity in speech are-r—though nobody will confess it—the public qualities now most in vogue. tfip" At last Sergeant Bates has reached his destination,having carried tiie American flag through the South ern Slates, fiom Vicbiburg to Wash ington, and everywhere been well re ceived ; thus triumphantly refuting, by practical evidence, tbe clap-trap expression so harped npon by Radical orators, that ''the life of no Union trmn irx t lio Notwithstanding th« onra taken by the Radical press to suppress the par t culfirs of Sergeant Bates's feat; not withstanding they have attacked him wi* h every description of scurrility mid ridicule, they cannot alter the significance of the fact that the United States flag has been carried through the entire South by'ati un armed Union soldier, unprovided with money, and has everywhere been re ceived with respect and enthusiasm. Do what they may —say what they may—it drives the last naii in the iMiffiu of one of their viles though must cherished slanders.— New Or leans Times. Sergeant Bates should undertake one more trip, in order to cap the climax of the service, (for it is a ser vice,) he has rendered to his country men. Let him undertake to carry the same flag through New England, unarmed and with'out money, and see how long it would be before he starved to death on Radical hospital ity and patriotism in the prosperous North.— lb. Sfey A Montreal paper tells a good story of the Catholic archbishop there. A military ball was to be given, and two officers appeared before the arch bishop to ask him to remove for one night, in their favor, the existing in teract against the polka. Their pe tition was heard and politely refused. Entreaty was tried but without avail. At last one of them aBked his lord ship if ever he had seen the polka danced. The archbishop admitted he bad not. Having praised it as au in nocent and healthful amusement, they obtained permission to dance it in his presence and show him what it was. Having ''polked" about the room sev eral times, they stopped, panting be fore him, expecting nnw that he would surely yield to their request, but were disgusted by bis permission, given in the following words : "You can dance the polka that way, with each other, as long as you like." 13P Madame Ristori will leave Havana on the 25th, and will appear in New York on the 2d of May in "La Teresa"—the piece which has bo excited the Havanese authorities, and which has never been played in New York. Five or six perform ances will be given, which will be the last of Madame Ristori in America.
