The LonJon Athenessum has a verylongand able review of a work entitled " America, and American Methodism. By the Rev. Frederick J Jooson. With a Pre factory Letter by the . T John Hannah, D.D.

We oopy the Allowing portion of the article : Methodism. at a strange historical fact, has n?d sufficient biographers and expounders bouthey.in a life written only as Sou they could write, combiuing sweetness of style with an or thodox illibcrality of sentiment, has presented us with the portrait of the founder?a man of keen eye. flowing hair, quick and peremptory speeon, aud austere yet communicative piety Tae substance. the form, and general exores *on of Methodism has found an able, if not a complete, analyst iu Mr. Isaae Taylor; while I^vmgton has jeored at tho pretonsions and travestied the grotesqueness of the system in a manoor which is winy aud malicious, if it be neither commendable nor jus . The human, every-day as poo tot Methodism, and that which gives it force an i popularity,its inartis'icgarb in commonness of speech, its uncomeliness of ?a.t and action, its loud out-door importnnity its in-door uncrinusneas.?that which makes its tones so mtellible to the poor, though but an ignorant jargon to the rich.?the soul of good ness th*t pervades all its evil.?its loug uncom plaining search for what is blankest, saddest, an 1 dreariest in the life of cities, its intercom nianion with crime, and disease, and rank and flashed obscenity,?its descent iuto mines, its vigil* in prisons, its day and night rovings,? trie ijj.'rum of humanity which goads it over rivers or swamps, across the Atlautlc and into tue trvpioa,?all this hru found neither a worthy delineator nor a sufficient exponent.

It is the creed of a!mo?t all Negrodom, ai>d has its woolly muez xinFfrom .Baltimore to Boston, from Kentucky t<> Indiana. It is great in Missouri, in Kansas, among tho Germans of Ohio and Pennsylvania, along the Upper Mississippi, along the Fox River and beyond the Falls. It has its col leges, its universities, its conferences; it num bers among its adherents judges and gov ernors. senators and members of Congress: it has its 6.000 ordained ministers, its million and a half of full members; and through its di visions and subdivisions is said to influence a sixth of the whole population of the States.

Showino thk Whitk Featukr.?Roynold's Newspaper BHys: The correspondcnts'of the Times and the Daily News distinctly asserted that, at the battle of Alma. rhe Duke of Cam bridge ordered hia division to fall back, when Sir Colin Campbell rode up. and, indignantly countermanding the fatal order, shoated out, '? The Highlaudurs never retreat f Forward !" . This promptitude on the part of Sir Colin proba bly saved the fortuues ol' the day; for, bad the Duke's division fallen back, the Russians would i have pressed forward in overwhelming num bers, and a panic on our side ensued. The same authorities allege that, wheu the Duke , applied to Lord Kttglan f"*r orJerj at Baluklava. ; h:s lordship told him to seek then, at th* hands of Sir Colin Campbell?his subordinate. We do not, oi our own knowledge, vouch for tbe accuracy of these statements, but they have been given on the highest authorities. They first appeared in the daily papers, were copied into the Kiinburg Review, aud have been cir culated over the wide world. No contradiction has ever l?eon ^iven to thsm by the Duke. It i is generally supposed that military officers are peculiarly sensitive of thoir professional repu tations; and it. therefore, does appear strange that, if able to do so. the Duke of Cambridge has not refuted statements apparently preju dicial to his martial fame. Artifh :%i i.v-Rhahkk Fish ?Alan exhibi tion in the Cnamns Elysees. Paris, were about three thousand S?h from the Artificial Piscicul tural Establishment formed at Thuringcn by the French government. They cousioted of ?.?l mon from tbe Danube, trout from the lakes of Switzerland, and grayliug from tbe Lake of Constance. The last named have only been hatobed the last SpritJi. There are two salmon three years old, one o. which is nearly nineteen i oches long by thirteen inches in circumference. These fiih were couveyed in cylindrical reser voirs made of tin, the water being renewed fre quently. If instead of breeding and rearing these fishes, they had been permitted to return to the ocean, or toremain in thoir native stream, they would havo exhibited very different re sults. A young salmon offourincbes in length and as many ounces in weight, when permitted to proceed to the ocean, returns to the rivers in about six weeks, from five to eight pmnds weight. Left to nature, the salmon will grow to about twenty-five pounds in throe years; reared and fod at the piscicuftural establish ment at Thuringcn. be will not in the same time roach a weight of five pounds. Bo that, after all, Dame >?uture has tho J*:st of us, and will continuo to Jo so in this particular, as it would seem, from all evidence, that we cannot adopt any but the natural method of producing living beings, and the artificially-reared fish will prove like machine-hatched hens-but weak and ?ickly substitutes far the natural ones. Hoops?The editor of the Cosmopolitan Art Journal brings a rouud und sweeping accusa tion against a distinguished performer on the New fork boards. We leave tho decision of the question to those who are inside of her hoope : Among the last "exhibitions'' may bo men tioned Mad. Freztolini, who is now starring upon our o|?eratic boards. In "Soinnambula, she appeared as the sleep-walker, properly dressed in night-clothes, but wearing most enormous hoops ' (Jut ry?did thesoinuambu list go to bed in sueh a modern costume ' In " Lucretia Borgia," we are also introduced to tbe Roman maid, hooped a la mode. So in ' Lucia Lammeiinoor.'' hoops are mado to play a prominent part. What an outrage upon all sense of fitness and propriety is such catering to the taste of fashion ' We may next expect to see " the noblest Roman of them all" parade the stage in one of Reebe's best beavers, patent leather boots, raglan, and cigar in moutn. We are happy to say that Madame Lagrange ex ervise* a better judgment, aud leaves her hoops " behind the scenes." "Scnhat Cor*."? An American infidel, b-?asting in a published letter that he has raised two acres of " Sunday corn," which be intended to devote to the purchase of infidel books, adds, " All the work done on It was done on Sunday and it will yield some seventy bushes to the arre. so i don't see but that Nature or Provi dence has *miled uj*>n my Sunday work, how ever the priests or the Bible may say that work done on that day never pruepers. M v corn tells another story To tlus tho editor of an agri cultural paper roplies, " If the author of this shallow nonsense had read the Bible half as much as he has the works of its opponents, he would have known that the great Ruler of the uuiveroe do?s not always square up his ac e >unta with mankind In tbe month of Octo ber."
