Correctly supposing that a persistent raid was being made upon placer of business by some iudnst'ious person in “shoving the queer," Ser geant Gund si once put hla men on track ol the scamp, tn h the happiest results. At the grocery etorc of a Ur.

Hon being called to her predicament, It was discovered that Mr. Seward was on board, together with a gentleman employed In the State Department as a translator of Fiench and Spanish, and that the strong box of the vessel contained an unusually large quantity of specie. When these facts were made public, various coiOcrlurcs and surmises were made as to the object of tho expedition.

Tho Gettysburg wastosail for the United States on the day of writing, and it waa currently reported there that the mission was a falinrc. The UI success of the enterprise was owing, ns was believed on the Island, to the tact that the power to conclude the treaty was Intrusted to an tncpmpetcct man.

Upon the whrle, we are inclined to think that Chesterfield has met with less than bare justice from a posterity that owe him no small debt of good will and gratitude. Not content with blaming him, upon very Insufficient evidence, for deficiency in quali ties to which belaid no special claim, and for bis injurious action in demoralizing young people by pages which ho never meant them to read. Indignant censors, whose lives do not Qualify them to stone sinners, arc often heard to condemn him for faults that cannot be fairly laid at his door. The “Letters,’* no doubt, contain many precepts that are dangerous, and some that arc abominable. Coming Irom a writer who lived in times when the Christian virtues were oat of fashion, and In a class that knew nothing about self-sacrifice or high purpose, they relied the frivolity and selfishness ot a vicious and faithless period. Unqucßllonablv a mao might realize Ches terfield's ideal of a perfect gentleman so far as that ideal can be ascertained from the epis tles, and yet conceal beneath his veneering of refinement the viler wood of which libertines, ruffians and sneaks arc made. All this may be granted : ami yet it Is Impossible to believe that Chesterfield was the uuaralablc and beatliess crea tine that the caricaturist would have us believe him. The man who made the art ul pleasing his continual study may have been marked by meanness and wicked pro* penalties, by vanity amt love ul self} but he must have possessed many lovable qualities. Again, the Known facts of his domestic life disptovu the accusation of hcarticssnuss. The very “Utters" which supply the materials for the charge are are also It* re futation. The allectlnimtu solicitude which they dlspiar Ibr a eon—the offspring of a dishonorable and sinful connection, a sou Mlioincveii kindly men woild linvo dis owned without compunction to long as they provided lor his education and prosperous outset In a humble way of life—ls conclusive proof thirl he was a man of tenderness and true reeling as well asof tuslo and accomplishments. How many hither* wlio exclaim against Chesterfield's Imuio. rnllty do us much for their law ml heirs? Ho also, In old ago—when natures that In their voutli and prime niAtilfestcd generous (input ’i-lveticss arc too often nipped l»v the frost of tnorosUy and discontent—he displayed the same paternal fondness, took similar trouble, for his godson and distant kinsman, L'ldltp Ml null ope.

Moreover, it wo undertook to write Cites lerficld’s vlmllea’iun, wo should say much about the usefulness and beneficial conse quences of his example in un age when men of rank could openly violate rules >i decency without losing social caste, when sola could bu men of fort, and people of quality were often prodigies of boister ous vulgarity. Chesterfield’s pen did something for ns in producing a collection of epistles from which every student ol literature derives enjoyment. But he did far more for his own time and the next bun dred’years in reclaiming high society from i stale of tavern savagery, and in giving us a school of manners which, notwithstanding its mannerism and obvious artificiality, has not been followed by a belter. What man of the world docs not experience gratifica tion on encountering one of those few men of the retiring generation who can be stalely without displaying hauteur, cordial without making noisy dcmonslrn tlons of friendliness, urhane to Inferiors with out a suggestion of condescension, calm to . equals, but In no degree frigid, complaisant to those greater than themselves, but never obsequious? These courtly and thorough gentlemen, yearly becoming more rare, are usually spoken of as “ men of the old school,” though it would be more correct to call ibera •* men of Chesterfield’s schooland such is the charm of their exhilarating graciousnccs that we never meet them without gladness, and never part from them without a sigh for he repulsive Iciness of the new mode.

The Mexican Shawl Dance, In certain Parisian ballets there is intro duced a so-called shawl dance, the effects being produced by the graceful wavings of shawls and scarfs. By the late accounts from Mexico it would appear that President Juarcx has participated In a not dissimilar festivity. HU recent journey from Chihua hua to Durango led him through a number of the smaller towns of Mexico, where the icople, impoverished by war, were unable o provide the means to build triumphal arches and expensive drapery, by way of ex jresslng their enthusiasm at his arrival: so .he women ot the town colle:ted all their gayly colored shawls, and with them adorned their houses and balconies somewhat in the old Venetian stylo. A similar incident was witnessed in our own country at the time of President Lin coln's death, when black veils and shawls served in the poorer country districts as mourning drapery. Juarez passed along these sbawl-deckcd streets like a triumphal conqueror. In every village banquets were prepared and genuine welcome was ready. Ills whole party com prised less than a hundred people, and ho could have been easily captured by Impe rialist troops bad any been In that vicinity. It seems highly probable that the Mexican President will continue his shawl dance un molested until lie gracefully pirouettes into Mexico City M bal we Breathe In Crowded Theatres, Some one has been making an analysts lately of the air wc brentho m a theatre or other close-home, containing a tlmiUuod or mote persons. lb carried into a ttioitre, at leu o'clock at nlgtit, a bottle of Icc, placed on 0 plate, and tiien collected the vapor, which lapidly condensed on the outside of the bottle and llowcd down on to the plate.
