Clerks James Fox,
The following account, which wc take from
Household Words, of the celebrated Fox, is
a pretty exact delineation of that distinguish
ed man, who acted a most conspicuous part
in English and European polities sixty or
seventy years ago. According to Lord
Brougham, who baa written an account of
his public life, he must have been one of the
most powerful debaters that ever sat in a de
liberative body. With all his personal faults
and failings and they were not a few no
leader of a political party was perhaps ever
so idolized by his political friends, among
whom were men of the highest merit, of al
most all kinds, which prows that their ad
miration and attachment were not blindly
and capriciously bestowed. Mr. Fox is not
regarded by Household "Words as in any re
spect profound, or beyond the next genera
tion. This may be, but he was nut in any
respect shallow either, nor, in point of politi
cal saaeifv and prescience behind any of his
cotemporarics, and was far beyond many who
ranked high for knowledge and ability, lie
was a erood classical scholar, and master of
the English language. His history of James
II. is undervalued, localise something extra
ordinary was expected of the distinguished
statesman ; and his peculiar notions about
historical writing caused him to use a style
much less impressive than that of his orato
ry :
" Stephen; second Lord Holland, though
by no means destitute of natural abilities or
vivacity, appears to have had in his compo
sition too great a predominance of the ani
mal nature over the spiritual. Hence an aj
oplectic tendency, which took him off at the
age of nine-and-twentv.
" But Stephen had a brother, afterwards
the celebrated Charles James Fox, the 'man
of the people,1 who, however he may have
indulged himself in the tame way, had lite
enough in him to keep him wide awake (and
others too) for nearly twice the time. In
deed he may be said, during his vouth, to
have had too much life ; more animal vitali
ty in him, and robustness of bod' to bear it
out, than he well knew what to do with.
And his father is said to have encouraged it
by never thwarting his will in anytliing.
Thus the boy expressing a desire one day to
smash a watch,' the father, after ascertain
ing that the little gentleman did positively
feel such a desire, and was not disposed to
give it up, said, ' Well, if you must, I suppose
you must ; and the watch was smashed.
Another time, having been promised that he
should see a portion of a w all pulled down,
and the demolition having taken place while
he was absent, and a new portion supplied,
the latter itself was polled down, in order
that the father's promise might be kept, and
the boy not disappointed. - The keeping of
the promise was excellent, and the wall well
sacrificed! ; but not so the watch ; and much
less the guineas with which his father is ab
solutely said to have tempted him to the ga
ming table, out of a foolish desire to see the
boy emploved like himself! Habits ensued
w Inch became alarming to the old gamester
himself, and which impeded the rise, injured
the reputation, and finally nullified that su
premacy on the part of the son, hich was
borne away from him by the inferior but
more decorous nature of Pitt.
" Fox was a great lesson to what is good
and what is bad in fatherly indulgence. All
that was good in him it made better ; all that
was bad it made worse. And it would have
made it worse still, had not the goodtluckily
preponderated, and thus made the best at last
even of the bad. Charles was to have his
way as a child ; so he smashed watches, ne
was to have his way as a youth, so he gam
bled and was dissolute. He was to have his
way as a man, so he must be in parliament,
and get power, and vote on the Tory side
because his father had indulged him, and he
must indulge Ids father. But his father died,
and then the love of sincerity which had
been taught him as a bravery and a predomi
nance, was encouraged to break forth by the
galling of his political trammels ; and though
he could not refuse his passions their indul
gence, till friends rescued him from insolven
cy, and thus piqued his gratitude into amend
ment, that very circumstance tended to show
Jhat he added strength and largeness of heart
to his father's softness ; for the spoilt child
and reckless gamester, finally settled down as
a renresentative of a nobler age that was
comiti", ana was me cjiarm m pnwwv oi u
who admired simplicity of manners and the
. . , Aof r,.n i
perfection of good sense. Apart horn this
love of truth, we do not take him in any re -
. , A ,
spect to have been profound, or to have seen
oeonu me next generation. What was
greatest in Charles Fox was his freedom from
nonsense, pettiness and pretension. He could
by nd means admit that greater was smaller,
or the rights of the American and French
nations inferior to those of their princes. He
envied no man his good qualities; felt under
no necessity of considering his dignity with
young or old; thought humanity at large su
perior to any particular forms of it ; and be
coming its representative in circles which
would have conceded such a privilege to none
but a man of birth, enabled them to feel how
charming it was.
The spoilt child prevailed so long in thti
i i to of Fox, and to all appearance so irreme
diably, that accounts of him at different ne
riods seem hardly recording the same man.
M To give instances, in as few words as pos
possible. We have seen the smashing of a
watch.

of peerages and ribbons; and on his return
from his first visit to the continent he appear

" His father paid a hundred and forty thou
sand pounds for his gaming debts.
"He took to the other extreme in dress,
and became as slovenly as he had been fop
pish. u Whenever he Avas in office he never
touched a card ; and when his political
friends, out of a sense of what was due to
his public services, finally paid his debts,
and made him easy for life, he left off play
entirely.
" He dressed decently and simply, and set
tled elown into the domestic husband the
reader of books, and the lover of country re
tirement, from which he could not bear to be
absent for a day.
" In Holland House, Fox passed his boy
hood and part of bis youth. He is not much
associated vith it otherwise except as a name,
lie and a friend one day, without a penny in
their pockets, walked thither from Oxford, a
distance of fifty-six miles, for the purpose, we
suppose, of getting a supply. They resolved
to do it without stopping on the road ; but
the day was hot ; an alehouse became irre
sistible ; and on arriving at their journey's
end, Charles thus addressed his father, who
was drinking his coffee : 1 You must send
half a guinea, or a guinea, without loss of
time, to the alehouse keeper at Nettlebed, to
redeem the gold watch you gave me some
years ago, and which I have left there in
pawn for a pot of porter."
A little before he died, at fifty-eight years
of age, of dropsy, he drove several times
with his wife to Holland House, and looked
about the grounds with a melancholv tender
ness." Washington Globe.
"And She was a Widow." A pale and

where a river gurgles, which she ne er re

histories. She was blithe and merry once.
She loved the customs of society, and adher

ion. Gay and happy as the world in which
she dwelt. But 'tis a mournful thing to car
ry a dead heart in a living bosom. It is a
bitter thing for a lip used to dainties to feed
on ashes. It is a fearful thing for the living
to know that their only treasure is hid in the
grave beautiful life life linked to repulsive
corruption. Her desires are written upon
her face. Its expression translate her mut
tered vearnings. She longs to join in the
distant and better country him who has gone
Ixfore. The welcome hour is nearer than
she thinks. They shall soon lay her beside
her buried idoL now lovely will bo that
lying smile, when the prayerful lips shall a

Poetry in California. A correspondent
of the Nevada Democrat sends a patriotic po
etical production to that popular paper, of
which the following is a stanzas :
Keep your eyes ever fixed on the American Eagle
Whom we as the proud bird of our destiny hail;
For that wise fowl you can never inveigle
By depositing salt on his venerable tail !
The following epigram, apolegetic for the
bear that bit the hand of Lola Montes, is from
the Marysville Herald :
When Lola came to feed har bear,
With comfits sweet, and sugar rare,
Brum ran out in haste to meet her.
And seized her hand because 'twas sweeter.

Virginia Gentlemen and Ladies.
A correspondent of the Boston Transcript,
writing from Richmond, thus expresses him
(or her-) self a follows :
" You doubtless remember the song of
" The Ciood Old English Gentleman, all of
the Olden Time," rendered celebrated in the
minstrelsy of Braham, Knight and Russell.
If I were devoted to the lyric muse, I think
my song would be of the Virginia gentleman
descended from the Cavaliers of old. There
is something right gallant and noble in the
true gentleman of this State him of the old
rey'um espeeially ; there is nothing dwarfed
or stunted, either in his inward or outward
growth ; hale, hearty, and stalwart ho is,
mentally and bodily, 1 every inch a ma He
docs not hesitate to express a frank, manly,
honest opinion ; there is nothing of prevari
eation or concealment in his nature; he is
not afraid to walk with head erect, and to
meet his brother face to face. The whole ex
terior of the Virginia gentleman is far less
care-worn than that of his brother of the
North, even as his mind is less subjugated to
fashion, and to the 'say of Mrs. Grundy.'
Of good birth and equal breeding, he knows
how he stands in his-Own community, and is
not chary how he recognizes an inferior, lest
he should lose caste, or be thought a miracle
of condescension. What a contrast betveen
such R one and the aspiring Northern parve
nu, who, uncertain of his owu position, fears
to speak to his hs fortunate brother in trade,
because, not having amassed suffieient prop
erty b be able to 4 sink the shop,' he (the
latter) has not felt authorized to cut his own
kinsmen and sisters.
The daughter, too, of this old Virginia
gnt Ionian is likewise to the manor bom;
bet heart is not crusted over with cold con
ventionalities, nor her soul smothered by any
omnipresent worhiliness. She has received
the truest hind of culture in the edueation of
the heart and the bringing out of every at
tribute of the afiect ions ; her miud is a re
pository of useful learning, lecause her edu
cation has been founded upon a knowledge
of the best English authors, and she knows
nothing positively nothing of Eugene Sue
or George Sand. She may, perchance, be
able to give you the Latin derivation of an
LEnglish word, but she does not sing in Ital
ian, and would not pretend to read German
in the original text. When her father enter
tains company, does she know aught besides
the time to dress for dinner and the art of at
tiring herself to perfection Here the allir
mathe is emphatic From the garret to the
cellar she has the well-ordering of all things,
ami is equally at home in the pantry and
larder, hhe is tlie true ctold m earnest no
bly womanly in her nature reined in the
whole tone of her edueation, and adapted in
ever sense to to tne rational company oi
num.
u What a comparison I might draw here
between such a daughter and that of the new
made Northern millionaire, who being bom
in Short street, or North street, or some other
obscure locality, scarcely knows how to de
port herself under a new regime and with an
onerous burthen of estate; she calls her less
fortunate sisters who are better bom and
more duly educated than herself, by the ele
gant name of u snobs" cut them bcliind her
sunshade when she meets them on the p ive,
and betrays her own original dirt by assum
ing hothouse aire, though many a one re
members that she first saw the light herself
from ' under a hedge.' In the words of the
worthy satire :
" As a wild flower, all would have owned it was
fair
And praised it, iho? gaudier blossoms were there,
But when it assumed hot house airs, we see
through
The forced tint of its leaves, and suspect that it
Under a hedge."
" The contrast I have thus drawn is stri
king:, and the existence of these two
extremes of being arises from marked differ
ences of education, and the more rapid growth
of one State over another in wealth and pop
ulation. But these things will right them
selves in the course of time. The scum will
rise to the surface, the ' snobbish' efferves
cence escape, and the extreme of fashionable
foolery find its own level. There is a thank
worthy conservatism in that kind of good
manners which proceeds from true hearted
ness and noble principle, which no modern
innovations can approach or parallel."
What is Aristocracy? In reply to this
question, Gen. Foy, a distinguished orator in
the French Chambers, gave the following an
swer : "Aristocracy in the 19th century is
the league, the condition of those who would
consume without producing, live without
working, know without learning, carry all
honors witnout deserving them, and occupy
all the places of government without being
able to fill them."

Extract from the Life of Jefferson,
HY HENRY 8. RANDALL, IX D.
JTIr. Jefferson as a lover Personal
Description of Him.
With Mr. Jefferson, the lover succeeded
the school boy in the due and time-honored
order, as laid down by the " melancholy
Jaques." The only record of this affair is to
be found in a series of letters addressed by
him to his friend Page, commencing immedi
ately after he left eollege and extending, at
intervals through the two succeeding years.
These are to be found at length in Professor
Tucker's life of him, and the Congress edi
tion of his correspondence. They possess
some interest perhaps in relation to their
subject matter, but most, as the earliest spec
imens of their author's epistolary writting
which have been preserved. Though
they display something of that easy com
mand of language that "miming j.peu"
for which he was alters aids so cele
brated, they exhibit no peculiar grace o
style, or maturity of thought. Perhaps,
however, these would scarcely be expected
in the careless, off-hand effusions of boyish
intimacy. It causes a smile to see the future
statosman "sighing like furnace'' in a first
love; concealing, after the approved fashion
of student life, the name of his mistress un
der awkward Latin puns and Greek anagrams
to bury a secret which the world, of course
was supposed to have a vast interest in dis-
oveiing; delightfully describing happy dan
ces with Lis "Belinda in the Apollo (that
room in the Raleigh tavern where w-i shall
soon find him acting so different a part;)
vowing the customary despairing row, that
"if Belinda will not accept his service, it nev
er shall be offered to another;" and so on to
the end of the chapter in the Well-beaten
track of immemorial perseriplion. The ob
ject of his attachment w as a Miss Rebecca
Burwell, (called Belinda as a pet-name or by
way of concealment.) whom tradition speaks
of as more distinguished for beaut v than clea ¬
rness.
Mr. Jefferson's proposals seems to have
been closed with the condition that he must
be absent for two or three years in foreign
travel before marriage. Whether for ihis, or
because her preferences lay in a different di
rection, Miss Burwell somewhat abruptly mar
ried another man, in !To4.
Mr. Jefferson was generally, how ever, rath
er a fav orite a favorite with the other sex,
and not without reason. His appearance
was engaging. His face, though angular,
and far from, beautiful, beamed with intelli
gence, with benevolence, and with the cheer
ful vivacity of a happy, hopeful spirit. His
complexion was iuddy, and delicately fair :
his reddish chestnut hair luxuriant and silk
en. His full, deep-set eyes, rather light in
color, and inclining most to a blue or brown,
according to the light in which they are view
ed, were peculiarly expressive, and mirrored,
as the clear lake mirrors the cloud, every
emotion which was passing through his mind.
He .stood six feet two and a half inches in
height, and though very slim, his form was
erect and sinewy, and his movements display
ed elasticity and vigor. He was an export
musician, a fine dancer, a dashing rider, and
there wasno manly exercise in which he
could not play well his part. His manners
were unusually graceful, but simple and cor
dial. His conversation already possessed no
inconsiderable share of that charm which, in
after years, was so much extolled by friends,
and to which enemies attributed so seductive
an influence in moulding the young and wa
vering to his political views. There was a
frankness, earnestness and cordiality in its
tone a deep sympathy with humanity a
confidence in man and a sanguine hopeful
ness in his destiny which irresistibly won
upon the feelings not only of the ordinary
hearer, but of those grave men w hose com
merce with the world llad perhaps led them
to form less glow ing estimates of it of such
men as the scholar-like Small, the sagacious
Wythe, the courtly and gifted Fauquier. Mr.
Jefferson's temper was gentle, kindly and for
giving. If it naturally had anything of that
warmth which is the usual concomitant of
affections and sympathies so ardent, it had
been subjugated by habitual control, Yet,
under its even placidity, there was not wan
ting those indications of calm self-reliance
and courage which all instinctively recog
nize and respect. There is not an instance
on record of his having been engaged in a
personal rencontre, or his having suffered a
personal indignity. Possessing the accom
plishments, he avoided the vices of the young
Virginia gentry of the day, and a class of hab
its, which, if not vices themselves, were too of
ten made the preludes to them. He never
gambled. To avoid importunities to games
which were generally accompanied with bet
ting, he never learned to distinguish one card
from another ; he was moderete in the enjoy
ments of tp table ; to strong drinks he had
an aversion which rarely yielded to auy cir-
cumstances ; his mouth was unpolluted by
oaths or tobaceo ! Though he speaks of en -
joying the Victory of a favorite borse," and
the " death of the fox," hqptever put but one
horse in training to run, never run but a sin
gle race, and he very rarely joined in the
pleasant excitement he knew it to le too
pleasant for the aspiring student of the chase.
With such qualities of mind and character,
with the favor of powerful friends and relatives
and even of vice royalty to urge him onward,
Mr. Jefferson was not a youug man to le light
ly regarded by the young or old of either
He became of age in 1701.
J3T The following letter was hajkfcd u.s
with the request to print it, and after looking
into its subject matter and style w ith that
wary diligence which fear of offence incitets,
we are of an opinion that no tenable excep
tions can be taken to it. " Myrtilla" is con
fessedly severe upon the individuals engaged
in the serenade, and the authography of the
name too, would' seem to indicate that the
writer is of the "softer sex." 13e that as it
mar. we trive the letter for what it is worth :
THE SERENADE.
Mr. Kditor. Music has been defined as
-a charm, a power that sways the breast,
Bids every passion revel, or be still ;
Inspires wiih rage, or all our cares dissolves ;
Can soothe distraction, and almost despair.
It would be proper for me to promise that
I am excessively fond of music. Having de
voted more than half of my time and atten
tion to attain the ordinary perfoetability i the
art. It will not, I am sure, be improper in
me, to say that I have some idea of good
performuuee, and although my appreciation
may not be very acute, as indeed it is not,
I do fancy that I have a very correct tate so
far as my capacity as a judge extends.
The serenade of Monday night the loth
inst. a night of calm serenity and soft still
ness one that would have so much become
the touches of the sweetest harmony was
certainly not the work of amateurs. The
motive that influenced the act was I doubt
not, in the best nature, and I willingly con
cede that the performance was equal to their
capabilities ; but sir, w hen an art so useful
and ornamental as music it seized upon by
neophytes, and its beauties thus turned into
tortures, I am emboldened to make a remon
strance. mSkm
I know sir, that every person cannot per
form, but all possess a discriminating judg
ment in a greater or less degree, so that it is
impossible for the cars of people to be enter
tained with such music as was obtruded upon
the slumbers of our citizens on the occasion
referred to. Music without harmony or any
other indispensable attribute, (except perhaps
the grand discoid) without any just spirit, or -a
languishment of notes, w ithout any passion,
or common sense. I have nothing of the
argitnuntum ad hominem in my manner of
speech,for ifldid, Iwouldsay to these serena
ders, " Improve your circumstances, by impro
ving in the art which you profess, soften as
much as can be, the hideous screaehinjs of
your violins, administer some kind of expec
torant to the distressful wheasings of the
flute, and until a respectable advancement is
made in the vocal department, O'tax not
so bad a voice to slander music anv more
than once.'
This rebuke sir, is given in the right spirit,
and I feel that no offence will be taken, as 1
am certain none is intended.

is thrown to some extent upon liis own re

run to his principal, and then implicity obey
the directions he may receive, he will never
acquire that aptitude of perception necessary
to those who hold important stations. A

Fast Woman. A woman named
Mrs
Hamersly, in St Lawrence county, N. York,
was a few days ago divorced from her hus
band at half-past seven o'clock, and her orig
inal name restored, her husband being in
court and resisting the application. At 10
"o'clock the same day she was married to a
Mr. Wikle thus being twice a wife and
once, single, and legally entitled to hear the
names of Mrs. Harnerslev, Miss Colton and

A Categorical Courtship.
I sat one night beride a blue-eyed girl
The fire was out, and so. too, was her mother ;
A feeble flame around die lamp did curl,
Making faint shadoWs, blending in each other;
Twas nearly twelve o'clock, too, in No ember ;
She had a shawl on, also, I remember.
Well, I tiad been to see her every night
For thirteen days, and had a sneaking notion
To pop the question, thinking all was right.
And once or twice had made ah aw k ward mo-
tiuu M
latajfrinfl &tanfTuv, couched and
jtuttered,
But somehow nothing to the point had utt
fg ed.
I thought this cnSnce too good now to be lost ;
I hitched my chair up pretty close beside her,
Drew a long breath, then ray legs I crossed,
Bent over, sillied, and for fhe minutes ejed
her:
She looked as if phe knew what next was coming,
And with her foot upon ihe floor was drum
ming. I didn't know how to begin, c r w here
I couldn't speak the words were alwa)B cho
king; I scarce could more I seemed vifd to tlte chair
1 hardly breathed 'twas awfully provoking'
The perspiration from each pore was oozing,
My heart and brain and limbs their power
seemed loosing.
At. length I saw a brindle tabby cat
VVaik purring up, inviting me to put hci,
An idea came, electricdike at that--My
doubts, like Slimmer clouds began to scat
ter,
1 seized on tabhy ; though a scratch she gave me;
And said 'Come, puss, ask Mary if bhe'll
have rne."
Twns done at once the murder was now out.
The thing was all explained in halfa minute ;
She blushed and turning pussycat about.
Said " Pu.-tv, tell him yes!" herfoet was id

The cat saved me my category.
And here's the catastrophe of my ttory.
Msrado. A lady was complimenting a
clergyman on the tact that site coiild always
recollect and recite more of the matter of hia
sermons than those of any other minister she
was in the habit of hearing. She -could not
account for this, but she thought the fact
worthy of observation. The reverend gentle-
man remarked that he could exj.lain the cause.
'I happen," said he, "to make a particular
point of classifying my tonics, it is a hobby
of mine to do so, attd therefore I never com
posed a sermon without first settling the re
lationship and order of iriy argunieuts and il
lustrationsfc Suppose, madam, your servant
was starting for town, and you were obliged
hastily to instruct her about a ieyy small pur
chases, not iia ing time to write down tin
items; and you said, 'Be sure to bring tonic
tea, and also some soap, and coffee too, by
the by j and some powder blue ; an 1 don't for
get to bring a few light cakes, and a little
starch, and some sugar; and now I think o
it, solla,' you would not be surprised if her
if memory failed her with regard tooneor two
of the artieles. But if your commission ran
thus, 'Now Mary, to-morrow we arc going to
have some friends to tea therefore bring a supply
of tea, and coffee, and sugar, and light cakes; &
the next d&y, you know, is washing day, so
that we shall want soap, and soda, and pow
der blue;' it is most likely that she would
retain your order as easily as you retain my
sermon.
