Dining one dh): at a party in Bath, he? uttered some­ thing which caused a .general mur-j^;| mur of delight; a nobleman present, who was not illustrious for the bril­ liancy of his ideas, exclairaed; “ what a pity it is, Quin, my boy, that a clever fellow like you sh&ts|d be a player-!”*.

A lieutenant, as he appeared to be, wore a chapeau about five feet long, which gave him somewhat the appearance of Guilt: ver at Brobdignag. Spectacles of tin and leather were seen in great numbers ; whispers were ivore of an enormous length, and ficqueutly red and even white. Musiaclius were enormous. Coats were seen of bright scarlet, brown, woulr.ri, deer skill, split cane, &c. & r. wiih iappels, cuffs, and linings often excessively caricatured— being made of red, yel­ low, and green baize, white muslin, (fee. Frocks, scarves, jackets, spen­ cers, long waisted coats, of different flues and variously patched, met the eye in every platoon.” V . One man, to avoid a difficulty ivbich militia officers not unfi t quent- Iv are perplexed with, had Ins. legs marked with large letters, the one Right, and the other Left. The knapsack of one was inscribed, “ creature comfort anotfier, “ bel ly timber,” and a third, “ ammuni­ tion for'the stomach.” One person, styled ih^'Black Knight, looked as if he had just escaped from a coal pit, being dressed wholly in black, even to the buckles of his armour, and his very face hid under a thick-coating of lamp black. “ Many hod very prominent noses, painted bright red, as if to indicate one of the tenden­ cies o f the militia system.” But it would be useless to attempt a description, of the appearance 'of this grote.sque pageant With any hope of conveying an adequate idea of it to one who did not witness the pro­ cession. The secret object of the principal movers in the matter' is doubtless to induce our law makers to change'our excellent Militia sys- tern— to throw down the main bulwark of the land——to disband the valiant array o f “ soldiers in peace and citizens in war.” It is T aliaqotjan OcEiUTtON.—-Such of oiir. readers as occasionally look into the good books read by their fathers, w'ill irememhcr the deperip- tion in Hudihras of the process by which the learned Taliapotius pr-o- vidiSd with ^‘supplemental noses’^ those who were so unfortunate as to lose that most prominent member of the human CQuritenan'ce.

William Maule, of Panmure, stands, as most o f our readers know, in a fine romantic sit­ uation, on ^te banks of the South Esk. Some time abouf the middle of the last century a falcon hawk liad -built her nest on the face o f a precip­ itous cliff, overhanging the river, in |he vicinity o f 'ilio castle.- Alany at« tempts had been, made to reach the nest particularly by two gardners be­ longing to the castle, but it was found inaccessible either from above or be­ low. The young hawks were sup­ posed to he about fledged, and the gardners had resolved lipon making another effori to secure them. The young men slept together, and on tfle- morning of that day when they were to make their final attempt upon the falcon’s . eyrie, one o f the gardners, when he awoke, said to his fled fol­ low, “ O, Will ! I had a fine dream to-night; I climbed the cliff, and plun­ dered the hawk’s nest of a couple of fine young falcons.” Aye but where are they now ?” said his companipn jeeringly. “ I thought I placed them below that tub w'hich stands in our room,” replied the other. Upon look­ ing out of bed they saw the tub bot­ tom upw'ards, contrary to its usual position One of them sprung out of bed, lifted up the tub, and the hawks were below i t ! demn toy child and I throw myself upon ty.

The wagon comes creaking along, loaded with the spoils o f the forest. Short days, full of work o f preparation, and long evenings, full of talk, plans, and “ time-killers,” are common occur­ rences.

The po­ litician calculates tha value of the Union ; the merchant the benefits of free trade; the manufacturer o f the tariff; the fanner counts his sheaves, and calculates how many bushels of grain he will have; the mechanic reckons up the amount o f his jobs ; and the good woman tells you the number of her poultry, her pounds of cheese and butter .— Bucks Co.

M. Perier, the Presi- flent o f the Council, in his speech thus alludes to the circumstance. It'will be recollected that one o f her sons joined the revolutionists and Lord .Chesterfield being apprised of the probability that he would die by inches replied with a smite, “ I f that is the case, I am happy that lam not so tall as Sir James Robison.” A fire happening at a public house, one of the crowd requested the engi­ neer to play against the wainscot but being told it was in no danger, I am sorry for that,” said he, “ because I have a long score upon it, which I shall never be able to pay,^^ I -L / ; ! g -
