To judge from the conduct and ideas of seme person among both sexes, respectability consists in driving fast horses, wearing rich laces, drink ing champagne, or idling away life. Tocut 8 figure it society, on the prominade, or at a we aring phre, appears to be the sole aim of many women, who surely were born for better things. To cuhivute a mustucbe, support, a "two forty" troittr, or act as a model exhibiter of coats for some fithiooa-ble tailor, saems to be the con ception of a dignified and respectable career formed by not a few of the men. Now, being respectable, in either manor wo man, is, to our notion doing what is duty. The poorest peison, even iu what is considered pop ularity, the hurablestevocaticn, who pays his lebts, obeys the law, nd fn'filj bis other obliga tions to society and to lis fellow-creatures, is a thousand tiioe.s more respectable than the wealthy idler, the educated apeiuUkfift, tbeeaAnns miser, or the iWnioflftbie fool. So the modest female, whether seamstress, book-folder, press-tender sloiekeeper.or even house servant, is, in the true sense of tbej word, infinitely more resectable than the extravagant vm who is ruining her husband, tin the Lhoughtiesr votary of fashion, than Lh-' buLeiil y :iirt. In a word, worth, not wealth, conPiitutes respects bili tjr. Again. It is s hat really if, not what merely seem to be rospecla'oie, llwt men of sense honor us such. Tile millionaire who has ob'ained wealth bv knavish practices, though he may creep fikrongh the meshes of the law, cannot escape the indignant verdict of an honest public; he may give grand dinners, drive a showy equipage, in habit a palace, and een subscribe ostentatiously to benevolent palrpoees; yet, with all his outside gilding, people recognize the rottenness within, and from the summit of his splendor, trace back thsliujv track by which he rose- S'tch a man, let him dci what he will, can never become re spectable. A gulf as wide as that between Dives and Lazarus, separates him from the esteem of the good. So also the. low-minded in all pursuits those cruel and unfeeling towards their fellow men, charlatans of every hue, hypocrites, dema gogues, toadies, sharpers, and all others of a sim ilar kind, cannot he respectable. Pinchbaek never vet passed long for gold. Or, us the old proverb- has it, "you cannot make a silk purse out of a sow's ear." the puople ore generally what habit renders them, it is lor the young these remarks are meant The old cannot be cured. If they are shams now, shams they will remain ; nothing, alas! can ever make ihem respectable. But the young have yet their habits to form. Let them take a high stand ard, and become truly respectable. RntKf Clay's advice to young lawyers. On Mr. C!av"s last visit to the East, in an address which he made to the students of the State and National Law School, now removed from Ball ston Spa to Poughkeepsie, after listening to their speaking powers inutile trial of a fictitious cause he said, among other things: "When I com. menced my profession in Lexington, as there wfis then no institution like this, I was in the habit cf exercising my speaking powers in any secluded place! could find. In the winter, often ilia barn; in the summer, in a corn field, con. verting some tall stalk into a judge, and the shorter ones beside it into juro:?. To this prac tice, in which I had none of the facilities of in struction and criticisms which you enjoy, more than to any to any otuer cause, do I attribute whatever success I attained at the bar. It gave fluency of speech, a power and rapidity of thought, and a degree of eelf-coafidence without which, like multitudes in the profession, I might have lacked courage at the outset, and by post poning the dreaded first efforts, have abandoned in the end all hope of distinction. 1 seldom of fer my poor self as a pattern, but in this you will do well to remember and imitatebiy example. Here you enjoy many superior facilities for prac tice and improvement. If you improve them well, the result will be seen and felt with the force of destiny on your future course and stand mg. My advice to every legal student is, to make an extempore speech every day, and when he. is admitted, he will have gained a fast hold upon the great element of success at the bar.' Macatjlay. I met Mr. Macaulay one dsy last weekroces6-j9?zi'sifljj along the old way, and ma king Burlington Gardens re-echo the ferule of his umbrella. The step of the old historian was, to use a musical phrase, as staccato and firmly de terminate as ever. The keen grey eyes had lost none of their eager onward expression, and the sternly drawn lines around the mouth worked with the woiking of the mind. Still, our im pression was thst Mr. Macaulay was not iook. ing well. His face had lost its frshness of com plexion, and there was the sense of the hand of accumulating years evident upon his brow. Tlie last accounts of the prospects of the next two volumes of the "History" were hardily cheering but as Mr. Macaulay takes no share in the pro ceedings of the house, it is to be hoped that the mighty task before him is being achieved slowly but surely in the classic chambers of the Albany English Paper. Mushroom Aristocracy. The Newburyport Herald, alluding to the growing evil of extrava gance in the United States, says : "There is not a country in the worid where the people are becoming so extravagant in their mode of dress and living as in the United States. It is one the worse signs of the times. The habits of this mushroom aristocracy are really disgnst ing. Row it looks to see boys sporting diamonds by the thousand dollars worth at a time, whose fathers were accustomed to the wheel-barrows, and w hose children are pretty certain to be in the work house. And girls, silly, simpering things, weighed down with jewels and bracelets, whose mothers broke their backs at the washing tub, scouring doors and picking oakum. The real substantial aristocracy never indulge in such fopperies and fooleries. The following verses taken from the ' Spirit of the Times,"' is a thrilling imitation f one of the most beautiful, as well as the rno.'t singular compositions ui American poetry. We allude to Poe s "Raven." Did You vcr Travel. Once upon a midnight dreary, As I lay all weak and weary, Snoozing on a diity pallet, Spread upon a tavern floor, Suddenly I felt an itehiug, Such a keen and pungent itching, That it set my nerves a twitching, Twitching all my body o'er, To myself 1 crossly muttered, For I felt a little fluttered, That's a ftea-bile, III be swore. Scarcely had these words beta uttered, Which I spoke, or rather muttered, Muttered, as 1 said -brfore When, upon a sudden notion, With a quick and rapid motion. With the point of my fore-finger Down upon the spot I bore Dowii Upon the very spot, sir, where The biting wasso sore. Then 1 rubbed, and rubbed, and rubbed it, Each time harder than before, For, you see but need I mention? It was my most fixed intention That said Ilea should bite no more. When I drew my hand from under. When i"d rubbed this flea to thunder, Towards my nose it chanred to blunder, Within half an inch or more. Pah ! a smell assailed my nostrils, Such 1 ne'er, ne'r snuffed before, No, nor never will again sir, if I live To see three score. Need I mention? you perceive it, I had smashed a chinch a bore, Old and rusty, filled with gore! And that smell on my fore-finger, It will linger, it will linger, Full or fasting, deep and lasting. In my mem'ry evermore. Triumph of Learning. Mind constitutes the majesty of man virtue his true nobility. The tide of improvement which is now flowing through the land, like another Niagara, is destined to roll on downward to the latest posterity; and it will hear, the, on its bosom, our virtues, our vices, our glory or our shame, or whatever else we may transmit as an inheritance. It, then, in a great measure, depends upon the present, wheth er the moth of immorality or ignoronce and lux ury shall prove the overthrow of the republic; or knowledge and virtue, like pillars, shall sup port her against the whirlwind of war, ambition, corruqtion, and the remorseless tooth of time. Give your children fortune without education, and at least one half of the number will go down to the tomb of oblivion perhaps to ruin. Give them education, and they will accumulate for tunes; they will be a fortune to themselves and to their country. It is an inheritance worth more than gold for it buys true honor they can never spend nor lose it, and through life it proves a friend in death, a consolation. Fashionable Manners. There is a set of people whom I cannot bear the pinks of fash ionable propriety whose every word precise, and whose every movement is unexceptionable; but who, though versed in all the categories of polite behaviour, have not a particle of soul or of cordiality about them. We allow that their manners may be abundantly correct. There may he elegance in every gesture, and graceful ness in every position; not a smile out of place, and not a step that would not bear the measure ment of the severest scrutiny. This is all very fine; but what I want is the heart and gaiety of social intercouse the frankness that spreads ease and animation around it the eye tha1 sneaks affability to all, that chases timidity from every bosom, and tells every man in the compa ny to be confident and happy. This is what 1 conceive to be virtue of the text, and not the sickening formality of those who walk by rule, and would reduce the whole human life to a wirebound system of misery and constraint. A cure for love. The question is sometimes asked, "What will cure love?" We answer scis sors. Let the subject be shorn of hair and you may take the word of a physiologist, that the tender passion will lose its distinctiveness; it may subside into respect; it is more likely to change into a less agreeable emotion. In man the hair is an excellent index of cha racter. As the beard distinguishes man from woman so its full and luxurient growth often in dicales strength and nobleness, intellectual and physical ; while a meagre beard suggests an un certain character? part masculine and part lera inine. Was-there ever a truly great man, or one with a generous disposition, with a thin beard and a weazen face ? On the other hand, show me the man with "royal locks," and I will trust his natural impulses in almost everv vicissitude. Whpn we see a genuine man. upon whom Nature has declined to set this seal of her approval, we cannot help an invoiuntarv emotion 01 aumira tion for the virtuous and persevering energy with which be must nave overcome nie destiny. From the Vicksburg Sentir.gi. John C. Calhoun. We find in the Richmond Kiuruirer an inter' esing letter, witten by a French gentleman tra vding in this country, who was in Washington al the time Mr. Calhoun made his last great sr.ech in the United States Senate, on the Com pomise Measures, in 1850, to his brother in Itris, in which he gives his impressions of that dstinguished statesman. He says: "I saw a Senator who procured me a seat on ue lower floor, near to the place at which Sena rr Masan was to read Mr. Calhoun's remarks; aid a little after one o'clock Mr. Calhoun euter d. He wore the appearance of a man padoslly sxpiring. His form was tlie merest skeleton, but his face, arid the peculiar expression of his (countenance, was an perfectly intellectual as any 'human face cguld be. I shall never lorget the shudder which came over me when I saw him enter the Senate chamber Richelieu, Voltaire, Moliere, Arago, Lamartine, Soult, not one of them ever had such a face. Indeed it is utterly impossible for you to conceive of the impress ion which his simple presence created. No man, destitute of miliUry renown, ever had so much deference and respect paid to him. Indeed I can now know how it las happened that he has been so long in the service of his country. All look ed with interest at him. When he sat down. the reading of his rpeech was proceeded with, hegioing with the simple but unusual address, Senators.1" (The Bsuaf address is "Mr. Presi dent," as it is with us.) Pome or Greece never had, in all their annals, a sublimer spectacle. Here was a man of the prOwundest acquirements the -purest private ami public character, leaving the bed of death to counsel the American Senate, upon a question ol the first magnitude to his own country and to the worid. The profound est attention was paid to every word and sylla ble. The paper was M s-imjJe nnd yet as mas terly as the arguments of the Emperor Napoleon in his disquisitions upon the state of BarofK, which be prepared at St. Helena. Tlie charac ter of Calhoun's mind is that of the analyzer, and also that of the classifier. He generalizes with more rapidity than any man now titing. His composition is easy and concise. He embraces his propositions in the fewest expressions, and his conclusions ?eem so apparent that a refuta tion is impossible. This discourse was the most eloquent composition I ever heard read in any assembly; indeed, I do not regard an v thing in French or English liternture as iis superior. It is eloquence, and with with it an argument that is itself history and philosophy. I read it again nnd again after it was published, and, in addition to copies sent you, I have kept several which I shull translate when I return to Paris. He was unquestionably the master spirit of the Senate. Doctors. If we examine the life of the prac ticing physician, we fiud it gilded and shining on the surface ; but beneath the spangles, how much pain and hardship ! Tlie practicing physi cian is one of the martyrs of modern society : he drinks the cup of bitterness, and empties it to thu dregs. He is under the weight of an im mense responsibility, and his reward is but often injustice and ingratitude. His trials begin at the very gates of his career. He spends his youthtul years in the exhausting investigation of Anatomy; he breathes the air of putrefaction, and is daily exposed to all the perils of contagion View him in the practice of his life ! He saves or cures his patient; it is the result of chance, or else it is alleged that it is nature, and nature alone- that cures disease, and that the physician is only useful for form sake. Then, consider the morti fication he undergoes when he sees unblushing ignorance win the success which is denied to his learning and talents, and you will acknowledge, that the trials of the phvsician ore not Boxpasted in any otlier business of life. There is another evil the honorable physician has to contend with -a hideous and devoming evil, commenced by the world, sustained by the world, and seemingly forevermore destined to be an infection upon hu manity. This evil is Quackery, which takes ad vantage of that deplorable instinct which actu ally seeks falsehood and prefers it to truth. How often do we see theshamelese nnd ignorant spec ulator arrest the public attention, nnd attain for tune, while neglect, obscurity ami poverty are the portion of the modest practitioner, who has embraced the profession of medicine with con scientiousness, and cultivates it with dignity and honor. Prof. Carnorhon. The Female Heart. There is nothing under heaven so delicious as the possession of pure, fresh, immutable affections.
