PARIOX'S LIj>E of HORACE GREELEY The January number of the Southern Quarterly Review contains a spicy, criti cal notice of Greeley's life. It is evident ly from the pen of an accomplisheu writer. We extract from it the conclu ding portions : "The world is always anxious to read the acts of remarkable men, whether good or bad. (. arew, the Gipsey; Dan cer, the miser; Lambert, the ton of man; Luckington, the man without arms or legs, have all hail their lires written, literature, like zoology and entomology, has its descriptive history, and not onl> should the peculiarities of the nobler an imals be chronicled, but the moie in famous reptiles should be marked that they may be aFoidcd. But it is not usu al to i>ee the chronicler of any except the more virtuous and distinguished men lake so deep and enthusiastic an interest m the events of their lives. Mr. foswell has created great mirth by his obsequi ous admiration of Dr. Johnson, and Bofc well was to be pardoned an exalted ad miration of this leviathan of literature. But when we look upon the sordid, un generous, unsocial, and repulsive charac ter of Mr. Greeley, how can we account for the ent usiasm of Mr. Parton ? Only by supposing that those qualities are pre Bented under such an exaggerated aspect as to command his admiration. The au thor and his subject are then coneenial in their natures, and concurrent in~their purposes, and the chief amongst these purposes is to create a slanderous preju dice against the Southern States. We have felt the best weapons from their armory; they are 'slings and arrows' only. The South despises them. They are thrown by cowards against a tower of proof. They are the petty missiles which the Lilliputians hurled against liulliver, who picked them out of his hands, as the stings of insects, but who, raising himself above their assaults, and covering his face with his handkerchief, was indifferent to their warfare. "Which, then, of these standard works is entitled to the highest commendation? Barnum, of whom it may be said: ?Fer dinando Mendez Pinto was but a type of thee ! thou liar of the first magnitude !' Wickoff, who exaggerates 4n foreign countries the humiliating meanness of his own; Canot, an outlaw from the outraged laws of all nations, now consummating the shame of his crimes by the infamy of their publication; or Greeley, who, born under the American Union, protected by i its arms and laws, profiting by the in- { tercourse with all its sections, seeks to 11 turn his sectional enmity to profit, and connects his hopes of future honor with the prostration of the rights, the destruc tion of the interests, and tiie sacrifice of the lives of his fellow citizens ? This question we cannot decide. But we shall await the sequel and appendix of the four biographies. Wre shall then see in what estimation men are held who vaunt their shameful practices, as the inoentive of patronage, and compete among themselves for the honorable meed of having com mitted more shocking enormities, more mercenary meannesses, or a more un grateful appreciation of tbai country whose power hM protected tad whose wealth has rewarded them." urt or rur E7*14 Soon?, where'* jour lkLher?" 44 Father's dead, sir." 44 Hare you any mother?" 44 Yes.

The civilizution of the Russian capi* tal is not more than skin deep. One may see this any day in the streets.? The pavements are abominable. Only two or three streets are lighted with gss; in the rest oil glimmers The oil lamps are the dimmer for being subject to pec ulation of officials. Three wicks are charged for and only two are burnt; the JLflerenee is pocketed by the police. All the best shops are kept by foreigners, the native Russian shops being mostly col* lectrd in a central bazaar, Gostinio Dwor. The shop-keepers appeal to the ignorance of a halt-barbarous nation by putting pictures of trade over their doors; and in his shop a Russian strives to cheat with oriental recklessness. Every shop in St. Petersburg contains a mirror for the use of the customers. 4,Mtrrors," says the Englishwoman, "holds the same position in Russia as clocks do in England. W ith us time is valuable; with them appear ance. ' They even paint their iaoes. The lower class of of women use a great aeal of white paint, and, as it contains mercury, it injures alike health and skin. A young man. paying his court to a girl, generally presents her with a box of red and white paints to improve her looks; and in the upper classes ladies are often to be seen by one another as they arrive at a house, openly rouging their faces before entering the drawing rcom. One day the English woman saw an officer boldly pocket some of his neigh bor's money while playing at cards. An* other tipped up his sleeve some concert tickets belonging to a friend. She and her friend both saw him do it. One day % young officer called while ther were at dinner; was shown into one of tLe draw ing rooms, and departed with a lady's watch. Nothing was said to the police, out of respect to his uncle; who was of rank. J adies going to a party will sometimes steal the papers of kid gloves and the hair pins left on the toilet tables, to sup ply those who happen to come unprovid - ed. Our country-woman went to visit an old lady; and, as all the drawing rooms were thrown open for the reception of vis itors, thought it no sin to walk from oae room to another for the purpose of exam* ining some pictures. The old lady arose and followed her, watching her move ments so closely that she returned to her seat greatly amazed. 44You must Lot be surprised at it, my dear," said a friend, after she got home again, 44for re ally you do not know how many things are lost in such parties from the too greet admiration of visitors."?Ruma K o?
