AMUSEMENT.
Ugliness .—Perhaps no Lady was
better reconciled to positive ugliness in
her own person than the Duchess ot Or
leans, the mother of the Regent d'Orleans,
who governed France during the minority
of Louis XV.—Thus she speaks of her own
appearance and mariners.
" From my earliest years I was aware
liow ordinary my appearance was, and did p
not like that people should look at me at
tentively. I never paid any attention to j
dress, because diamonds and, dress were
to attract attention. My husband, ta
the other hand, loved to cover himself jj
with jewels, and was well satisfied at my
dislike of them,'as it saved all disputes it
for the possession of them. On great days
he used to make me rouge; which I did
greatly against my will, for I hate every as
thing that incommodes me. One day I in
ade the countess of Scissons laugh hear- t0
tily. She asked m# why 1 never turned s
my head whenever I passed before a mir- ou
ror, as every body else did ? I answered,
because I had tuo much self-luve, to bear
the sight of my own ugliness. an
"I must hâve been very ugly in mythe
youth ; I had no sort of features ; with lit
tie twinkling eyes, a short snub nose, anil
long thick lips. TI.« whole of my physi-j
ogiiomy was far from attractive. * ace j a
was large, with fat cheeks, and yet my ,|
figure wâs short and stumpy; in short I
was a very homely sort ot person. Except
fur the goodness of my disposition, no one
would have endured me. It was imp 0981
ble to discover any thing like intelligence •
in my eyes, unless with a m.cro.cope-|
Perhaps there was not on the face o the
earth such another pair ot ugly hands as a
The King often told me so, ami set
me laughing about it; for as I was qu.te a
sure ot being very ugly, 1 made up. my
mind tobe always the first to laugh at it. j
This succeeded very well, though I must
confess it furnished me with aguod stock
of materials for laughter.
My temperament is naturally rather J,
melancholy, and when any thing «listrea
ses me, my left side swells up as if it were
filled with water. 1 hate to lie in bed,
and the moment I wake, I rise immediate
!y. As tur breakfast, 1 take it very sei
dom, and then have nothing but bread anil
butter. Chocolate, coffee, tea, and all
other foreign drugs, I detest. My habits
completely German, and nothing suite
me in the eating and drinking way, which
is not conformable to our old customs. I
cannot eat soup unless it is mixed up with
milk, beer or wine ; and as for gravy broth,
it is abominable ; it always makes me su
ill, that nothing but sausages and ham can
put my stomach to rights again."

MR PERKINS' STEAM ENGINE.
The number of the Edinburgh Philoso- at
phical Journal for last month, contains
Mr. Perkins' own account of Ids method
of applying the new principle to steam
engines of the old construction. I he ac
count is taken from the specification of
his patent, which was open to the mspec
tion of the public. The Editor of the l,tm
dim Journal of Arts, states that the mode
of applying the principle tu a variety
doorjoperations in which heat may be requisite,
is embraced by a second patent to be spe
Thejcificd this month, (Nov.) and that tl.e me
the.chanical construction of the working parts
tl.e engine will be explained in the spe
cification of the third patent, which will
he enrolled in December. The same wri
ter mentions that several of ttie new en
gines which have been ordered, were in
hands; and, particularly, that an engine
somijahout 80 horse power, for the purpose of
heaillsteatn navigation, was in considerable
wardness and would be in operation be
tween London and Margate before the end
of the Summer. Mr. Perkins, after giv
ing a particular account of the generator,
concludes his specification thus :—
" I therefore hereby claim exclusive pri
vilege for the following improvements on

or other fluid or fluids, for the purpose of

-We have seldom heard of a more bar
parous act of cruelty than the following,
[which took place last week, in Lebanon,
in this state. In the family of Mr. Hunt
wa9 an orphan buy of nine or ten years
of age, who was recovering from a spell
of the fever which lias prevailed so gene
rally this season. Mrs. Hunt ordered him
to take a vessel and bring some water
ex-from the spring. The boy stayed longer
she wished. The spring was distant;
ap-there was a considerable hill in the wa y
tu it, and the boy was weak ; notwithstand-j
ing, she fell upon him, and beat him, <>Hu
she was obliged to desist, through fajlure
of strength. She wished she was able to
beat him to death. A bro her of her s took
bythe whip and beat him till he did not «ce I
disposed to whip him any longer. A sis
be.ter succeeded.ami laid on till she felt in- ,
„eil to quit. Some men at work new
the place, came and took up the child
(who was speechless) and carried him to

but it was too late; he expired in a short
(ad-time. When the Hunts heard that the
child was dead, they called in three P''?'
sicians to have the body opened to try to
prove that it died ot sickness; but when
the doctors saw it, they relused to open it.
They said it was obvious from the condi
turn it was in, that it hail died of abuse.

gave a verdict of " death by chastisement.

HARDENED VILLAINY.
The Baton-Rouge Gazette ofthe ï 1th
ult. contains an account of the trial of sc
veral criminals before one of the district
courts of Louisiana. Among the number
of prisoners, there was one, who, for bold,
onen-faced villainy, lastly excited univer
sal indignation, and is perhaps without a
.parallel in fbisor any other country. This
■vile scoundrel was named Wood, with "a
l well combed beard" of several mouths'jto
orowtli on a pale face, a frowning anil au
üacious look: such was the aspect of the
nrisoner when brought into court. The
indictment stated that on such a day, he,
tVood did steal from a certain person, a
luantitv of gnods, &.C. The ducument be
n°- rea'd Wood addressed the court and
said « They have made an error in the in
dictment, it was on the 4th of August, at
midnient* that 1 stole those goods." "You
»re not accused of stealing in the night,"
observed the judge to him, " and I conceive of
it my duty to inform you, that you are
not bound to confess yourself guilty, but
l would rather advise you to choose coun
sel." " I have done the deed," said Wood
and I plead guilty!— I thought that as the
proprietor of those articles was gambling
„way all lie had, it was better that I should
steal from him, than from another, as he
would certainly have lust all: but I think
I might also inform the court, that previ
ous to bringing me to gaol, my accuser
treated me to six hundred lashes—which
however I mean to repay him, as soon as
t am at liberty. I forgot to mention also,
that the guards which were placed to
watch over me, stole from me the best
part of the goods.
