A reviewer in the New York Tribune thus gives a brilliant and pregnant rttuwts of the great transcendental essayist's idea uf John Bull'j character as it is : 4' The first point which claimed hip atten tion and wonder, as it does that of every American traveler, was the material perfec tion which is visible on the facc of the coun try. and tbo condition of the people. Eng land is a paradise of comfort and plenty The fields present the appcarance of a highly cul tivated garden One would think that they had been inished with ? pencil instead of a plow. Tho towns show a solidity of structure that speaks (ho industry of ages. Every thing gives the impression of magnificence und endless wealth The climate constantly brings agricultural production up to the high eft point There is plenty of water, of stone, of potter*' clay, of coal, of salt, and of iron. The land naturally abounds with game. 1m :iiei:oC heaths and downs arc paved with quails, grouse, and woodcock, and the shores are animated by water birds The rivers and tho rurrounding sea spawn with fish. The people have meat vigor of body and endur ance They are bigger won than the Amer icans A hundred Englishmen taken at ran d? m out of the street would weigh a fourth more than so many Americans. But tho -kcl ctou is not lirgcr They arc round, ruddy, aod handsome ; the whole bust is well farmed, and there is a tendency to stout and powerful frames The beauty of English w. men i* not improved by this circumstance Their forms arc apt to grew stocky, and, instead of tall, slender fijurc3, of flowing shape, wo find j stunted and thick set persons, and. as the j t rench say, with two left hands, liut, in all i ?gos, they are a handsomo race. Tho fair < Complexion, Mao eyo, and open and florid as pect of the English face indicate a love of truth and fino perceptions. The Saxon man s not tho wood out of which cannibal, or in juicltor, or i.-- made. He 13 moulded , or law, civility, marriage, the nurture of chil- 1 lren, for colleges, churches, charities, and t clonics. The English havo vigorous health, ltd last well into middle and old a^o The >ld men are ns red as rose?, and 3ti!l hand some. A clear skin a peach-bloom complex un, and good teeth, are found all over the si and. They live well Their diot is plenli- r rul and nutritious. They uo not work <>n wa- f .er-cresses Beef, mutton, wheatbreal, and ( nalt liquors are universal among the first 5 :lass laborers They have more constitutional ?nergv than any other people They love all ] lorts of. manly cxercises They box run, ( ihcot, ridc; row, and sail from pole to polo. I They eat and drink and live j dly in the opou | c lir, putting a bar of solid 6leep between day t nd day. They walk and rido as fart a? they | r an, their In ads bent forward like Romany ' \ uad dogo. Both men and womon w.;ik with ; j| ofutuatioii.

T'.cy are the in . t n cracious people of prey that ever existed. t 'ho mus ics of tho mon aro almost as t mgb J nd supple as those of dogs and horses iu o rhi.-h they so much delight. If in every cfii iont man thrre is first a fine animal, in the Inglish race it is of the best breed, a weal- 8 by, juicy, broa l choste l crciture, .too pel in a le ?nd go?d chcer, and a litllo overloaded 1 y his flesh (Jonnocted with the high material develop nout of the English nation, is their pa won lor itility. They lovo al! the incchanicnt p w- a rs, the Flanders draught-borse, tho water- c all, and the ssa and the wind to bear their a reighl ships. Their toys are steam and gal- a anism. They are heavy at the fine arts, but t droit ft% the coar*c?not good in jewelry and d nosaics?but the best iron masters, colliers, v rool combers, aal tanuors in Europe. Their uccess iu agriculture, iu resisting the elc- t aefits, in the manufacture of indispensable ? taples, is miraculous. You dine with a gen- 1 leman on venison, pheasant, <juail, pigeons, ? sultry, iuu:hroons, and pine-apples, all the c ;rowth of his estate They study utility in heir building, in the order of their dwellings, ?ad iu their dre-i. Tho Frenchman invented he rulHe, the English addid the shirt. He rejirs a sensible coat buttoned to tho chin, of ough l>ut solid and Listing texture. They lave diflused the taste for plain substantial iats, shots, and coat throughout Europe They i?ik to the essentials in their diet, iu their rts and manufactures 1 In trade, the Englisn believe that nobody Teaks who ought not to break. The love of leUils, the not driving things t >0 finely, en litute that dispatch ot business which makes he mercantile po{>er (f England, la war, Ley rely on the simplest menns. They do iot like ponderous and difficult tactics They dopt every improvement iu rig, in motor, in reapunc, but alter all believe that tho l>est traUgeni in naval war, is to lay ytur ship longside of the enemy's ship, and bringing dl jour guns to bear on him until you or he ;o to the bottom. They do not usually shed heir blood for a point of honor, or a religious entiment, and never for a whim?they havo 10 Indian taste for a tomahawk dance, no French taste for a badge or a proclamation, iut if you offer to lay hands on his day s Triges, on his cow. or his right in common, or lis shop, tho Englishman will fight t-> tho :rack of dot in. He concentrates all political iglits in the right to his ?wn dinner The juestions of freedom, of taxation, of privilege tro money questions. If capable of larger riews, the indulgence is expensive, costs great :xi&ea^ or accumulations of mental power jteeped in beer and flesh pots, they are hard >f hearing and dim of sight. Their drowsy ninds need to be flagellated by war and trade md politics and persecution. They cannot *ell read a principle except by the light of agots and of burning towns. The English character is founded on a prac ical, utilitarian basis Their intellect is es entially logical. They are jealous of minds ,hat have much facility of association. They ire impatient of genius and of minds addicted o contemplation. They cannot conceal their sontempt for sallies of thought whose steps hey cannot count by their wonted rule. They iro impious in their skepticism of theory; iu ligh departments they are cramped and eter le; but this practical logic has given them be leadership of tho world. Their uuivarsal lower re3ts on tho national sincerity Their reracity is innato in their animal structure. Lhey are blunt in saying what they think, .paring of promises, and they require plain lealing in others. They hate shuffling afid , uivoc itiou; and tho cause is damaged in the public opinion, on which any faltering can be ixed. An Englishman habitually understates, avoids the tupcrlativo, checks himself in com pliments, and alleges that in the French lan 'uajro OLe cannot speak without lying They ove?rcality in wealth, power, hospitality, and lo not easily loam to m iko a show and take be world an it goes.

They confide in each other-English believes u English. Iu the power of saying rude truth 10 men surpass them. Their ruling pas?ion iu hese rude days, is a terror of humbug In ho same proportion they value honesty, stout iess, and adherence to your own But their love of truth is combined with a lingular want of imagination and sentiment L'heir slow temperament makes them *esa ?apid and ready than the people of ^er countries.
