EVENING STAR. A Spoonful of " Punch." Trk Wrowos or CR<KOLI<<R ?''Mr/ Dfi$rrst Mr. I'tincA: l>o, pray, let me beg and en treat of you, please, be so kind as to notice the dreadful carelessness that everybody al most is guilty of in not minding what they are about, and dirtying, and tearing, and spoiling ladies' dresses. 1 appeal to you because i know your chivalrous spirit; you are like one of the knights of the olden time who rode about righting wrongs and repressing griev ances, particularly those of distressed dam sels, with their lances, and in the s.imc waj 1 wish you would give the rude, negligent, pro voking, disagreeable creatures 1 mean, a poke. Oh ! I have no patience with them They know that dresses are worn long and wide now ; then, since they are aware of this, why can they not bear it in mind ? Instead <<f which, whenever they go down stairs, gen tlemen 1 mean, to dinner, or away from a play or a concert, or anywhere where there arc ladies with them, those behind us are cer tain to tread on the skirts of our dresses, thinking of something else. The same at ta ble, where the legs of their chairs are sure to 1 e on our flounces, and when we rise to retire crash they go! "Of course, owing to the width of dresses, it is now impossible to get into a brougham, or any carriage almost, without the dress rub bing against the sides. Now when drivers of other vehicles in the streets, not only cabmen, but with carriages of their own, mu t s^e that, why is it they take little or no care how tb<-y drive, and splash ours, s> that we must brush against it getting in, and there is a beautiful new dress perhaps all over mud? If they cannot help splashing, which they cuu'.d it they tried, the .Board of lie.kith, or whatever it. is, ought to see that the streets are kept in i proper state, swept nise and e'ean, not only in London, but at watering places now, and other places where fashionable people go, and. heing obliged to appear as such, if the streets are dirty, of course they naturally sweep up the mud, ami rub it on. and one way or the ? ;ther gel dirt ail over, and spoil their things. "Another thing, when men arc walking along the pavement they never mind h w they carry their umbrellas and walking sticks Very often they hold them lengthways by the middle, and then, as they hurry along, with their minds absent in stupid thought, or busi ness, looking straight before them, up in the sky. or any where but where they ought, the crcok .it the end catches in a fjld of the dress, and?cra- k !?tear it all d<wa If they must carry slicks and umbrellas, they should confir.e themselves to those with kunbs for handles, instead of hooks getting in the way < f our dresses and tearing them " Servants, too. are so very incorsiderate in arranging things without allowing proper room One canuot step into a balcouy where there are plants without upsettirg a geranium, overturning a myrtle, or knocking down .-?n orange tree, or perhaps breaking a beautiful vase?all for want of a little foresight, which, if they do not exercise it, what advantage is it to be gifted with such a prerogotive in pref erence to the inferior species. "I aiso think. Mr Punch, you might pive a hint to gentlemen when they go inside a carriage, not to take up so much room as they do with a lady by the side of them, and her dress, as the case generally is. spread out over their knees Tell them they ought to try and make themselves a little less, and then we should think more of them '? You would confer another obligation if j you would recommend railway companies and ) the managers of theatres and other amuse ment", to alter their seats, the narrowness ot ! which makes them very uncomfortable ; and ! this I will say, which may have good tenden cy, that almost the only place a lady can ap pear in. and go without being inconvenienced at the entrance, is church, where, at least, one at a time, one seldom h is to squeeze one s j way through the door. "Oh! I could complain a great deal more. ! but now 1 must conclude, for fear too much I rotm should be oceupicd in your interesting Columns by Crisglimk. "Marine Parade, Sept , 1^56. " P. S ?If they would but think tho least in the wcrld, the inconvenience might be so j very easily remedied." i Character of S S. Premiss as an Orator. If amongst American orators, Webster was the Demosthenes, and Cl.iy the Cictro, Pren tiss was nothiLg lt.vj than tho Lysine of Lis dsy Indeed, it may be questionable whether j Hrentiss, was not, in soiue lespects, *ut>crh>r ! to either of the men who, by common cin.-ent, j <to?;d at the head of American orators during their generation. In fluency and < ?pioti-?-.e < ! he clearly surpassed them both Never did ii fountain hui>blo up l'rom tho ground with :i ! more natural und easy tl ?* than the woids ? from his lips; and never did a brook ?o on its j way with a more melodious murmur, than iLe j accents lrom his tongue in oi.e re pect In* . speeches were like tho.eof ;?e ?;ge Whitetifld ii.1 A.?r- n Purr?they never could be report el. Thi. is made very apparent in the two : volumes bef< re us Tue form, the skeletons j of a few of thcut are given, but the life, the j ;oul of bis eloquence are not there. That { wild luxuriance, that exuberance of fincv. that inexhaustible richness of imagery, which appeared to bo inspired by the time and oc- ! casion, and which it was his misfortune that ho did not or could not commit to paper, ; those the two volumes before us do not fur- t nish. For partisan politics he never h.td much aptitude lie became a politician by ' accident rather than by de.-ign : for he had rather a noblo disdain of the arts of the derna g' cuc, and like John Randolph, sometimes offended tho people by refusing to hatter them. In mere electioneering, ho rnaJc as sorry a figure as William Wirt did, and wilh j the like result. Put when the point w;.s to ! be carried by eloquence, when the heart and * the reason wcro to be assailed his triumph came We well remember the occasion of his [ address in Faneuil Hall Everett had spoken and l'eley Sprague, both eminent orators; and : many from the South and the North had vied with one another in professions of patriotism and in stirring appeals. At length a man n ti ' with a kindling eye, and a ruldy blare ot , health and excitement upon his cheek It v.as ' S S Prentiss, a native of Maine a resident of j Mississippi. AH were attentive; and fr ai t the moment he opened his lips, it wh3 like the oulburtting of a torrent. Words rusW ed forth, laden with thought, as spontarie- j ously, to all appearance, as the stream leap from the rock. Tho whole rangu of natu ? ani the wholo field of English litcra uie ? seemed at his command. Of course it was the result of effort previously made, as well as ? f natural aptitude ; but the appearance was that of inspiration. From Lature to boiAs and from books to nature, he swept to and fro 1 as he went flashing on to the close ; ar.d when ; he sat dowu the universal sentiment was, that on that day Prentiss had surpassed all others. .

Almost any second-rate writer can describe the common emotion!) of the human heart, but it needs a master hand to describe the ex quisite intensity and thrilling joy of wsrm affectionate kissing it is a kind of test-bur f<>r poetic writing.
