Of Mil who now saw him for the first time, not ona but was agreeably impressed. With ex ?reme delicacy end regularity of feature, thorough refinement in expression, and a countenance the natural animation of which was probably hightened by the excitement of the moment; with unaffected dignity of man ner, and a gracefulness of bearing that showed itself in the brief passage to the spot assigned for bis reception, be needed few other claims to win the most cordial acclamation of his wel oomen. He was dressed in the uniform of Colonel of the Guards?a scarlet coat, blaek trowsers. and bat with plume. He wore, also, the broad ribbon of the Garter. Erect and wall UnrmamA "" * ? 41 1 .. .... ?, ?Hia uuniuuia WM 4U uio favor. Ail persons were strack with the youth fulness of his appearance, for which a knowl edge of his precise age seemed not to have prepared them. As he stood listening to tbe reading of the address, with undisturbed com posure, and in easy attitude, he looked as nandsome a young English gentleman as the most sealous of his provincial well wishers could have desired to find him. i His face is not unlike the Queen's, as we have , it represented in portraits, and the forehead and ohin are atill less prominent. (lis hair is light, and hia complexion very fair. Hia eye is bright and keen. The other features are large, but not ill formed, and the mouth is pe- | culiarly expressive of quickness to mirth. The beat likeness I have seen of him is a steel en- , graving which accompanied a recent number | of a London illustrated paper, the New* of the ( World, which is admirably perfect. A large ] wood cut in Frank Leslie's Newspaper, whiob ] has just reached this place, ia also excellent in every detail, exeepting that the mouth is too uara ido compressed. in general effects, this likeness ia very acearate. ; Major Lincoln, on bin way to St. John, on \ the Styx, invited the Prince to visit Boston, < and. if need be. to bring his fleet into Boston ] harbor, and embark there for Europe. The Duke of Newcastle afterwards told the Mayor ] that no programme could yet be settled for the < vi?it to the U&ited States, as it was not known how long the Prince would remain in Canada; . til At <?" J * J *-!? ? ' ??-? *uu ?^uccu ucoircu 111 in to rexurn so a? to r?c'>mmence his studies iu the month of Octo ber; and that time must therefore govern his moremnti. It was added, that authority had b?en given to Lord Lyons, the British Embas sador, to receive invitations for His Royal Highness, and that on meeting him at Quebec, it would be settled where the Prince would go. As to the embarkation for Europe, nothing was as yet fixed, but it was likely it would be at New York, though Portland had been spoken of. The Prince of Wales, so the officers of the H?ro tell me. experienced little sea sickness after leaving Plymouth in the Hero. The offi cers' rnw room having been vacated, that apartments for His Royal Highness might be fitted tip. there is plenty of room made tor him and his suite. The dining-room is immediate ly under the poop, and his bed room is at the tern. The dining-room contains very simple furniture, bat what there is is elegant in the extreme. On the sideboard are two beautiful little marble busts, one of the Queen, and the other of Prince Albert. Above these is a print of Prince Albert, in midshipman's uniform, and all around the room are portraits of cele brated naval officers?Keppel, Brooke of Sara wak, Ae. The sides of the bed room are cov erod with neat chintz. The rooms of His ft race of Newcastle and Lord St. Germains are similar in their simplicity. jjuigouua scanci coai, gio?y ana ncmy Slumed cocked hat, and resplendent "Orders ' j ?eked bis slight figure now, do nobbj civil ian'* costume set on those well shaped but as j jet undeveloped limbs?nothing bat a vulgar tweed suit, with a common straw hat wore he. AII effort* to count the number of strands in , the straw and to ascertain the cut of his trow aera failed! It is safe to presume, however, that the latter were peg tops. The Ztaavtt o( (hi Revelutioa. At this time it may be interesting to know that there were Zouaves in the War of Inde pendence. The extract of a letter, written by a young soldier in the Connecticut army to hi* parents, which follows, states the fact: u Dear Parent#:?Our company arrived here lut Bight very late, hungry and tired. Train ing is a good deal harder than old Squire Fell tells of. If he'd marched fourteen miles a day for three day* and carried his pros, besides father's old French war fusee, I calculate he'd sol been so encouraging to us boys I don't find fault, mind; I only wish to let you know that we are not on a May party. * At Milford tarern we were joined by two companies of soldiers from New Haven, and a eompany of 'queer fellows,' as Jake oalls them, from the soutnern colonies. They are all rifle men, and are oommauded by Colonel Cresap. They dou't use any beds, as we do, but sleep ri^ht on the ground, all in a row, like Indians ARut th*ir intim in mililtri ??>?;??? ? of the cariou*Mt kind. They load and fire their rifles lying flat oh their bellies. After that thej tangle themselves all up in a knot, and look just like a porcupine, with their guns sticking oat all over them. But the wonder most part of their action* ia their hitting a mark. Any oae of them can hit a small po tato at fbrty rods distance. You never naw anything like it. When wfe get to camp I will writ* more about thee* riflemen, who would amuse the girls if they eould see them cut their antics. ' The oompany described ia this letter is also allndad to ia Store's Diary of tha Revolution, at follows: " Auaaat 7, 1T75.?On Friday evaainar last trrivtd'u fa?WIf, P?n on their way to the Atacricu oiop, Capt. Cresap's company of riflemen, consisting of 130 active, brare Gang fellows, many of whom h?Te been in th# :? expedition under Lord Dunmore against the Inoians. They bear in their bodies fisibl# mark* of their proweaa, and show sears and wounds which wonld do honor to Homer'i Iliad. They show 70a, to use the poet's words, w bere the gor'd battle bled at every Tela !' 44 One of the warriors in particular shows the cicatrice of four bullet holes through his body.

It is said by those who are judges that no rep resentation could possibly come nearer the original. The captain's cxpertness and agility, in partioular, in these experiments, astonished every beholder.

Thia seems to be the first fashionable murder of whioh this place whs the theatre. In 1819. A. T. Mason, a United States Sena tor from Virginia, fought with hi9 sister's hus band, John McCartj, here. MeCarty was averse to fighting, and thought there was no necessity for it; but Maaon would fight.

In 1820, Commodore Decatar was killed in a duel here by Commodore Barron. At the first Bre both fell forward, with their heads within ten feet of each other; and. as each supposed himself mortally wounded, each fully and free ly forgave the other, still lying on the ground. Decatur expired immediately, but Barron ITdntllkllT r(K?nr?r?J In 1821. two strangers named Leg* and Sega appeared here, fought, and Sega was instantly killed. The neighbors only learned this much their names from the marks on their gloves left on the ground. Lega was not hurt. In 1822, Midshipman Locke was killed here by a clerk of the Treasury Department named iibson. The latter was not hurt. In 1826, Henry Clay fought (his second duel) with John Randolph just across the Potomac, ss Randolph preferred to die, if at all, on Vir ginia soil. He received Clay's shot, and then tired into the air. This was in accordance with a declaration made to Mr. Renton, who spoke to Randolph of a call the erening before on Mrs. Clay, and alluded to the quiet sleep of ber child and the repose of the mother. Ran iolph quickly replied: "I snail do nothing to disturb the sleep of the child or the repose of the mother." Heneral Jessup, whose funeral I attended last week, was Clay s second. When Mr. Rande'ph fired, he remarked: "I do not shoot at you, Mr. Clay," and ex Lending his hand, advanced toward Clay, who rushed to meet him. Randolph showed Clay *hore his ball struck his coat, and said, face tiously: "Mr. Clay, you owe me a coat." Clay replied: " Thank God the debt is no greater !" They were friends ever after. In 1832. Martin was killed br Carr. Th?ir first names are not remembered. They were from the South. In 1833, Mr. Key, son of Frank Kej, and brother of P Barton Key. met Mr. Sherborn and exchanged a shot, when Sherborn said : 44 Mr. Key, I have no desire to kill you." 4i No matter," said Key, " I oame to kill you '' 4? Very well, then," said Sherborn, 441 will kill you." And ho did. In 1838. W. J. Graves, of Kentucky, assum ing tho quarrel of Jamea Watson Webb with Jonathan Oilley, of Maine, selected this placo for Cilley'a murder; but the parties learning that Webb, with two friends, Jackson and Mer rell, were armed and in pursuit, for the purpose in BBsaraiuauug v/iiio/, m<>vea mwtra i&t river and nearer the city. Their pursuers moved toward the river, but missed the partita, and then returned to the city, to which they were goon followed by Graves and the corpse of Cillcy. In 1845, a lawyer, named Jones, fought with and killed a Dr. Johnson. In 1851, K A. Hoole and A. J. Dallas had a hostile meeting here Dallss wa3 shot in the shoulder, but recovered. In 1852, Daniel and Johnson, two Richmond editors, held a harmless set-to here, which ter minated in coffee and not in coffins.

Th* FirUt Locomotive Tkip.?Major Ho ratio Allen, the engineer of the New York and Erio Railroad, in a speech made during the recent festival occasion, gave tne following account of the first trip made by a locomotive on thi* continent44 When was it? Who waa it7 And who awakened its energies and di rected its movements7 It was in the year 1328, on the banks of the Lackawaxen, at the commencement of the railroads connecting the canal of the Delaware and Hudson Canal Com |jauj wuu iuni uvw iiiiuos?auu ue WOO la dresses 701 vh the onlj person on that loco motive. The circumstances which led to my being alone on the engine, were these: The road hud been bnilt in the aummer; the atrno ture wa* of hemlock timber, and raila of large dimenaiona notched on oapa, placed far apart. The timber bad cracked and warped, from ex posure to the ann. After about 300 feet of strnight line, the road croaaed the Laokawaxen oreek on trestle work about 30 feet high, with a curve of 355 to 400 feet radiua. The impres sion was very general that the iron monster would either braak down the road or it would leave the track at the curre and plunge into the ereek. Mj reply to auoh apprehensions wm that it was too late to consider the proba bihty of such occurrence ; there wia no other ooarae than to hare a trial made of the strange animal, which had been brought here at a frmat expense; bat that it was not neoessary tbat more than one ahoald be involved in it* fate; that I would take the first ride alone, and'4ha time would tome when I should look back te the incident with great interest .As I rlaoed my hand on the throttle valve handle, was undecided as to whether I should move slowly or with a fair degree of speed; but be lieving that the road would prove safe, and preferring, if we did go down, to go hand somely, and without any evidence of timidity, I started with eomidetable velocity, passed the curve over the oreek safely, and was soon oat of hearing of the vast assemblage.
