AMONG THE ESQUIMAUX Our MTig? friends were kind and generous. They anticipated our every wish. One of the! young women, true to the instincts of ber sex, ran off to the valley, with a doien boys and girls at her beels, and filled oar kettles with water Kalutunah'a koono (wife) brought us a *t?ak of seal, and a dainty piece of liver. All smiled at the slowly-burning canvas wick of our lamp, and at the sputtering salt fat; and the chief ient hi* daughter for wme dried iuo?s and blabber. We gave them a share of our meal, offered them a taste jf coffee, and fused around some pieces of ship biscuit, he biscuit proved too hard for their teeth, and until they saw us eat. they could not divine its use. They laughed and nibbled it altern? ately, and then stuck it in tk<<ir l>oot.??their general temporary receptacle for all curiosities. They made wry faces over the coffee, and a general laugh aroxe against the Anxekok. who persisted in taking a drink of the not liquid. We bad, altogether, an amusing time wuh them. The evaninx beinz warm w? ?ar I upon the rock for severat hour*, and after supper our men lighted their pipes. This capped the elimax of our strange custom* The Esquimaux seemed amazed, looked first at us. then at each other, then at us again The; evidently thought it a religious ceremony, *e?ing how solemn were our faces. At length I could not abstain from a smile: the signal thtw given was followed bj shouting, clapping of hands, and general confusion among the tra?p. They ran about, puffing out their cheeks and imitating, as nearly as they could, the motions of the smokers. Kalutunah. who was determined to try everything, begged to be allowed to smoke a pipe. One being handed to him. he was directed to take a lon~ and deep inhalation; this accomplished, he desired no more, and his rueful face brought the mirth of the party again upon him. Having thus established the most kindly relation*. we presented a needle to each of the women, which greatly delighted them, and hiving nothing else to offer us in return, they started off in a body and brought us a few pieces of blubber This was what we most wanted, and they were aaked to barter more of it for a knife The question must have been misunderstood, for an old woman who was called Eglavfit. .meaning intestines.) and who seemed to he one in authority, fold a long story representing how pour they were, how unsuccessful they had been in the hunt, how they would soon have no fire and nothing to eat. and how the winter would soon be upon them; in short, if we could believe her, they were just on the eve of dying. I have heard enoh stories before, near the equator, when substantial favors were likely to be reouired. and I hp??n to mspect that we had commenced at the wrong end with oar negotiations. Accordingly I sug gested to Peterson the propriety of saying that we came for the purpose of bestowing numerous blessings upon them; that we abounded in knives, needles, wood, and iron, and that we expected in return for our bountiful gifts such of their paltry goods as we might require during our journey among their people. Petereon acted upon the suggestion, and interpreted my speech to them in a very solemn manner. Whether because of the speech, the sudden exhibition which followed of the coveted knives, or the disposition to do a good thing, I cannot say. but certain it is. that the voice of the old woman gave place to that of the dark-skinned Nalegak ,chief; who replied, quite laconically, "The white men shall have blubber!" They were in fact badly provided The hunt had latterly been unproductive, and they had not. in the whole settlement, food for three days. They were to hunt on the morrow, and if succeesful. they would give us the required supplies, in case we would wait. This was all very fine, but the game was still in the sea. There was clearly manifested a disposition to furnish us with what they could command. They all went away in a body, and returned in a few minutes, each with a piece of fat. some of the pieces not being larger than one's hand. Every one expected, of conrae, his or her reward ; but it wis quite impossible to pay them "? .uuniuiomiiucu mcu: into families, giving to each of these something Thus we distributed a few small pieces of wood, a dozen needles, and a couple of knives. AUofether, the supply of blubber was sufficient to II our keg. We obtained, also, a small bagful of dry moss, which served us much better for lamp-wick than canvas or rope-yarn, which we had previously used We could not obtain any food, for tha poor creatures bad none either to give or to barter.?Dr. Hnye'a Arctic Boat Journey. t Illnttrieua Dunces An interesting chapter might be written on the subject of the Illustrious Dunces?dull boys but brilliant men. We have room, however, for only a few instances. Pietro di Cor- ' tona, the painter, was thought so stupid that he was nicknamed "Ass Head"' when a boy; and Tomaso Guidi, was generally known as ' Heavy Tom'1 (Massoccia Tomasaccio.) though by diligence he afterwards raised himself to the highest eminence Newton, when at school, stood at tbe bottom of the lowest form but one. The boy above Newton having kicked bim, the dunce .-bowed his piuck by challenging bim to fight, and beat nim Then he set to work with a will, and determined also to van?<ui?h bis antagonist as a scholar, which he did " rising to the top of bis class Many of our greatest divines have been anything but precociou* Isaac Barrow, when at the Charter school house, was notorious chiefly for his strong temper, pugnacious habits, and proverbial idleness as a scholar, and he caused such grief to Hi* parenu, that his father used to say that if t pleased Ood to take from him any of his children, he honari it mi?k? t? I? ?* - least promising of them all. Adam Clarke, when a boy. vu proclaimed by his father to be a grievous dunce, though he could roll large stones about. Dean Swift, one of the greatest writers of pare English, was-plucked at Dublin University, and only obtained his eeominendation to Oxford, "speciala gratia The well known Drs Chalmers and Cook were hoy* together at the parish school of St. Andrews: and they were found so stupid and mischievous that the master, irritated beyond measure, dismissed them both as incorrigible dunces. < The brilliant Sheridan showed to little capacity aa a b-<y, that he was presented to a tutor by his mother with the complimentary accompaniment. that he was an incorrigible dunce Walter Soott waa all but a dunce when a bop, always much readier for -bicker" than apt at hia lessons At the Edinburg University, Professor Dalicl pronounced upon him we entence that "Dunce he waa, dunce he would remain " Chatterton was returned on his mother's hands as '-a fool, of whom nothing could be made.''

Alfieri Uft college as wise as when he entered it. and did not begin the studiea by whieh he distinguished himaelf, until he had run over half of Europe. Robert Clive waa a dunce, if not a reprobate, when a youth; but always full of energy, even in badne??

Rsjral Imbecility. No better answer oould be found the objections of Europeans to the American system of electing rulers than is oontained in th? fnllnw. iag humiliating revelation concerning Grand Duke Charles, nusband of the Grand Dutches Stephanie, of Baden. which is made by M. Ivloard Simon, in the Revue Cootemporaire: "At the Palace of Carlsruhe," says the article, "a whole aerie* of apartment* was found which the lata Grand Duke had successively locked up.and which nobody had entered since It had long been an old mania of his to lay by everything he received, no matter what, and B<> matter from whom. No one was allowed to loach these things; the Grand Duke himself abstained from doing so, without ever taking the slighest notice of any application for restitution. As soon as a room was sufficiently full he would lock it up, taking out the kev, and begin the same ceremony with another. When, after his death, these mysterious rooms were opened, they were found to be filled with an innumerable quantity of precions things, cos- j tames, all kinds of trumpery, down to chil dren's playthings, recollections of childhood, and which the Prince had never used. Here a quantity of rouleaux of silver, labeled 'Captain'* pay for H H. Prince Charles,' and a vast quantity of twenty-kreutzer pieces (about 14 cents) carefully wrapped up; there drawers filled with rouleaux of gold; then snuff-boxes of the createst vmIup rin?a ? o - ?. i . . ugv7( uuu viuci JO WOIP, to the amount of more than a million of value There treasures had laia dormant for many year*, and yet, a short time before his death, the Grand Duke had been pinched for money, which he could not get at a lower rate than 16 per cent Then there were books, cards, petitions, papers of all kinds, which weie brought to light with the treasurers; an immense quantity of sealed letters, dispatches which had been looked for in vain, and then thought to be lost; precious documents, the want of which had prevented the settlement of important affairs and seriously endangered legitimate interests Lastly, there were piece* of art. rich arms, offered for sale to the Prince a long time before, and which were found pell mell with embroidered court dresses, masquerading costumes and laced hats In many eases it was impossible to find out the owners of some of these articles; and then, again, things which had been paid for by the civil list, and never had made their appearance were found here." Aunt BeUey ?'Rilrd I p." ' I declare if I wan't riled up," said Aunt Betsey Green, dropping her knitting work into her lap. and pushing her spectacles up over her cap border: "I declare if I wan't' If I could only have taken that man by the collar, Sr- I used to my Reuben when he didn't toe up' to suit me, I'd have given him luchashak tug as ae never neard on, 1 11 be bound " There he set in that rocking chair, his feet on the fender, and kept growling out at Liiy .lane to bring him his boots, or fasten hi* collar, or some such unreasonable thing, all the while that she was trying to dress them four young ones, and had the headache so she looked more like a ghost than a breathing woman. If I was in that ere place they call legislater, I'll bet there d be a law passed to build a penitenshry. or some other kind of pen. for such critters as he is,?with no mercy on a woman whether she's sick or well, just keeping up their 'you do this,' or you do that,' from sun-rising to sun-setting. ' But then there's Lizy Jane iti most as much to blame aa he is.

" I did feel kind of spiteful Wlien Licy Jane set her head up and acted like she kind of crowed over me 'cause she'd got a city husband; but ever since I stopped tnere, I've felt real christian about it. " I tell you, girls, when a chap a?ks you to stand up before the pareon with nim. you just find out whether he can stir out of a rocking chair long enough to find his boots, or not, ana whether yon are to be head-waiter or helpmeet after you arrive in the County of Matrimony, State of Bliss." Pride Mortified ?At a ball given in Prymont, a celebrated watering place in Germany, the tutor ot a young oount, a Oottingen stui dent, requested a young lady to dance with him. Just a* the dance was about to commence, the lady inquired of him: "Witn whom have I the honor of dancing7"' "I am the tutor of Count Von Z?replied her partner. * Ata a commoner. I presume?" she rejoiced; to which he answered in the affirmative. "Oh, thencontinued the lady, as she withdrew her hand from that of the tutor, "I beg jou will accuse me, for mamma has forbidden me to dance with a commoner." This rebuff completely threw the modest I preceptor out of countenance, for on the oontiaent tu be so deserted on the eve of a dance, is to Iom cast for the rest of the night, if not i longer. It is supposed to indioate the existence of *>me moral taint dieoovered by the person* who quits the side of another, and which is exaggeratod into something heinous by the company, particularly if they are utterly ignorant of what it is. The young man quittad the room, and sought the open air to breathe more freely and colle^ himself * Ilia pupil followed hiiu, and learned the cause of his distress. "You shall soon have ample satisfaction for this mortification," said the generous count, sad hastened back to the ball room, followed bv his tutor 'The momont was propitious. Preparations WAr?

Just before the danoe began, he addressed to her the question which the herself had put: With whom have I the honor of danoiag ?" "With the Lady Von B she replied. 'Ob, I bee your pardon," said the oouqt, "but papa has forbidden me to daaee with I any but countesses," and Instantly quilted her I side. | He bad the satisfaction of hearing that his conduct was applauded by every sensible person in the room. Few will deny that it was a well-merited punishment. 07" K cargo of corn for Ireland was shipped dirr-t from Richmond, Va., last week. Name Derivations ? Robert, famous in oounoil. Richard, liberal.
