The tnusio struck Up a grand flourish, and hh ftlajesty reached his chiririn the ’midSf o f a gallant uproar; The Dauphin and Ma­ dame topk the stools on my side of the table; the Danphiuc the one opposite; two dames d'hormear bad Stools behind the two Princesses; the men found places where they could, those of trie high­ est rank) keeping o f course nlghest the Sovereign:.- There was some little ceremony in being seated, the king taking his place first, his family nest, and theHutebuses waiting aear a inmuie afterwards before they resumed their places. At this instant a column of enquiring faces was seen advancing slovy- ly along the little bine; aijd the,world began to go by looking tike' so many hungry ghosts in a play. ■“ Black spirits and white, blue spirits and gray,” would describe them better, for a more motley set never stood, in the presence of Royalty. 1 should think there -were few of no Frenphmen or women of much importance in this tparching multitude; but there Were English arid Aitiericans in abun­ dance •.—The Frcach were inerchands, mechanics, footmen, soldiers, maids, and.all those varieties of employments by -whieh an ingenious French wo­ man knows'how to turn a penny : in Short the col­ lection was, as they would s-ay in England, partic­ ularly vulgar, The chief amusement was now af­ forded by these passengers; when they stopped, which they were often disposed to do, the domes­ tics o f the Palace would urge them ou; some ofthc more obstinate contrived to remain in the room eight or ten .minwtes; but by far the greatest part passed through at a slow- walk. There w as a Cardinal at the elbow of Charles, but I neard no. grace. Talleyrand affected to exam­ ine a paper, which I suppose was the bill of faro; but his master dismissed him early in the entertain­ ment, in pity, as I thought, to his infirmities. The king eat rather heartily , and lie drank several glas- esof wine witha very sensible relish. The Dau­ phin Was much more moderate; aud the ladies, like all other lafees, were, I suppose, too etliereal to 6 'at. They laughed and talked with the atten­ dants,'andsometimes iVith each other, though they were seated too far asunder to converse together with ease, as themtisicplayed withoutintermissicn: —it was excellent. To dose., 1 will sum ■up as follows: The Grand Couvert ofthc 1st Jan, 1827,Was as rich as gold, diamonds, strirS, and feathers could conveniently make it: but is a pitiful spectacle'for a king to pre­ sent to his people. The state of majesty should riot be exhibited in trie prodess of eating. It tells every one, .in the plainest word, ‘deprive me of food and 1 would die like any other mortal,’ It is idle to say that every body knows this already ; so do wc know a thousand things of which it is not wise to think rif. I shall always draw the image of Charlss X. in niy mind, .eating his soup. FVorn fhe American Review, REYOLHTIONARY AKECpOTE.

TTiis motion was supported by 5'Ir. Oliver and Mr. Golden, aud it prevailed. In the Senate the bill was further amended.'

Mr. Barstow,called up the resolutions ofi'ered by Mr. Benaet, for ap adjournment of the legislature on trie, third o f April, aud on his motion, the -word ‘‘•Ihitd” was stmek out, and the word “tenth’’ inser ted. The question then recurred on Ihe passage of the resolution, andaftcy some conversation, it was laid on the table tillio rr orrow, Mr Beeclier.callcd up the resolution for two ses­ sions a day, and it passed.

J The house went in committee ofthc whole, Mr. Livingston in the cnair,. on the bill from the senate regulating Ihe manner of electing justices of the peace. This hill is in conformity to the following amendment to the constitution, adopted at the last election. ‘That the people of this state in their several towns, shall nt tbeir annual election, and in such manner as the legislature feall direct, elect by ballot their justices o f the peace, and the justices so elected in any town, shall immediately thereafter meet togel/icr in the presence of the supervisor and town clerk of the said town be divided by lot into four; classes, of one in each class, an'd be num­ bered one, two, three and four; and the office of nninber one'shall expire at the end of the first year of number two at the end o f the second year, of number three at the eltd of the third ye.ar, and of number four at the end of the fourth year in order that one justice may thereafter annually elected.” The bill provides that justices shall be chosen at the annual Stale flection. Mr. Stevens offered a substitute for the bill,pro viding that they shall be elected at the annual own meetings, and contended at length, that the phraseology of this amendment to the coustitution, required that the justices Should be chosen at town .meetings. ';■ Messrs. BpeSkqr, Skinner Hamilton, Doty, and WardwoB, spokein favor o f the substitute. Messrs. Barstow, Sachet,-Eldredge.MoBcIy,Pish, Foole, Granger and Parke, maintained that the bill from the Senate, was in accordance with the meaning of the constitution.
