NEW YORK HERALD. N?w York. Monday, August II, 1845. Herald Supplement. Advertisements and the foreign news compel us this morning to publish a supplement to the New York Heraid. It is served to city subscribers only. AKKIV1L OP THE MONARCH OK TH? OCEAN GREAT BRITAIN. Brilliant 8peetacl^>Vnparalleled Enthusl uu-lmin?nM Concourse of Spectators. The Great Britain was telegraphed at 12 o'clock, on yesterday, but it was a quarter past two betore she arrived otr Governor's Island fort, The first in dication of her approach was her salute to Fort Hamilton, which was heard, but barely so, by the spectators en the Battery. From this moment the utmost anxiety was betrayed by the masses to get the lirel glimpse of her, and when they did, it was expressed in vehement ejaculations of " there she is," " la voila," " c'eit alle ," fyc., fyc. The first view was very indifferent ; the state of the atmosphere being dark and hazy, and very unfa vorable to show her vast outline in the distant per spective. Sailing up very slowly, she at last, steer ing in mul channel came off the Battery, where for the first time an impression was made worthy of her magnitude. All that has been said of her in foreign journals have not done her justice, and noth ing but the evidence of the senses is adequate there to. She is truly beautiful ; her vast length was stri kingly exhibited in contrast with that of the North Carolina, towards which vessel she directed her course, and turned aa if on a pivot to steer her course up the North river, saluting the fort as she passed. At each of hermasts she displayed afflag, and her deeks seemed a miniature city for population. "That iaa sight" ? " She is beautiiul" ? was the cry on every hand, while the bustle and rush of the crowd in that direction as she passed between the Battery and Governor's Island was altogether im petuous, and betraying an anxious desire to have her in sight as long as possible. Iier rate of sailing was slow, it being fully an hour from her coming in sight until she was lost to view among the forest of musts in the East river. Of course the crowd was immense, and yet it would have been still greater, were it not that expectation was damped a little by the diurnal, reports of her arrival that had gone,out for two or three days pre vioualy, and which only ended in disappeintment, until, at last, she did come in all the pride of her glory. On returning from the animating spectacle, our reporter saw thousands rushing down in hopes of being in time but, alas ! they had to put it off urtil a more convenient season. When the noble ship was first seen from Gowanus, a cry of joy went up from all beholders. From the heights about Gowanus she presented a grand and beautiful appearance. The shores from Gowanus to Brooklyn were completely lined with persons eager to catch a glimpse of the new and wonderful visitant, and the wharves in Brooklyn were covered with men, women and children. As soon as it was known that she had entered the harbor, hundreds were seen running for the water. All wanted to see the Great Britain, and all were well repaid by a view of the noble ship. After rounding the battery on Bedlow's Island, she stood up the East River, on the Long Island shore until nearuig the Fulton Ferry, where two nuns were disch irged ; then she crossed over and ran along, closely hugging the wharves. This was no ex ei'ted ; it was thought she would keep close on the Long 1-litid side, and then cross over. But she was kept close in on this side, and was brought up witti her bows on the end of the pier. She reached th'S poi t at exactly half-past three o'clock, half an rtour ufter she rounded Bedlow's Island. An attempt was made for upwards of an hour to bring her along, aide the pier, but in vain, in consequence of the strong ebb tide, and the effort was given up unti slack water Her appearance at this point was mos beaut ful. She appeared like a great castle above the tier, her bows resting on the wharf at the foot ' of ii..t.?n s treet, and her stern some two piers fur tlie <!i wn. At every mast were colors streaming ; at t ??? -.'aff ? lirge union flag of England f1**w gaily ; is t ie breeze ; first mast had the Austrian flag ; the ?"Con ) m ist tiie Russian ; the third, the Spanish ; the fourt'i, the French tri-color ; the main, the un ion jack of England; the foremast, a blended Hag of England j and America, ? the stars of this countr' blended witii the blue, white and red of the union of- Eng land, and ut the lower quartering the stripes. She w a accompanied to this spot by the steamer "Hu guenot," crowded with passengers, who saluted the mighty leviathan of the deep, as she got to her berth, wuh three hearty cheers, and the vessel shortly after landed her passengers at an adjoining pier. The scene at this time was most stirring. Every point that could command a view of this great piece of naval architecture was crowded with spectators The piers were jammed full ; the yards, decks, and ringing of every vessel in the neighborhood was manned and boyed by such numbers as never be fore were thought of, the tops of houses, and every window that could command even a bird's eye view were Idled; the piles ot timber in the different yards iu the vicinity were covered with anxious specta tors. The vessel was continually surrounded by fleets of boats of every description, containing men. women, and children ; more than one steam packe1 loaded with passengers came out of their course to take a glance nt this far famed craft; some indeed were especially engaged for the purpose, and were crowded with li lies and gentlemen, the for mer waiving their handkerchiefs, and the latter cheering. All appeared to be gratified with the safe arrival ol this most splendid vessel. It is truly surprising to think that amid so much excitement and the great throng of spectators no ac cident of mat-rial consequence occurred. This was innsie t measure owing to the excellent police ar rangements which were adopted under the direction of Ju-tice Mat sell. This gentleman was on the wharf with som* fifty men of the new police before three o'clock. lie took possession of the wharf by closing the <rntes and placing his men at the entrance and around the sides ; and causing all vehicles to take no h Htand on the opposite aide of the road with the horses heads towards Clinton street, and placing others of his men to keep them in proper order. ? He also placed others on board of different vessels on the piers and parts adjacent on either side. This kept a 1 the would be turbulent spirits in subjection. Finding that this drew off most of his fore# from t'te wharf, he sent for < te-inforcement of some twenty-five or thirty more to protect the pin-Rcn gers when landing, and R-ep the whait clear, which in a very short space of time were on the s,?ot. in the meanwhile the passengers were lande I from 11 vessel near lb" bows of the (ireat Britain in |>eifect safety. The only accident that w.18 known was lhat of a boy who fell from the Edwin i, lying on the other side of the wharl, into t ie nver. us he was endeavoring to get a little closer than is neighbors ; but he was in a few minutes pick d up by one of the many bo us lhat were near by, with only u good ducking and a little fright. ? It was ab<>ut seven o'clock when the vessel wa? bri ng :' along side the p'er, and thousand then en deavored to board her, to get a view of her inferior, hut were kept in good check by the police, who re mained on duty until uhte hour last evening.

TBI MviltRJOf'S ^KVr:< $TAF.f*.--W# hive re ceived a communication from Washington, from a quarter of the highest authority in that region, giv ing uh a complete history cf the interesting move ments which led to the establishment of a new orgaii of Mr. Polk, uuder the management of Ritchie ano Heiss, with all the preliminary negotiations and th? subsequent developments brought about hv that bit of tactics and political diplomacy. In n day or two, we will be enabled, by a correspondence from the capital, to give a lull history of the negotiations foi the organ, embracing everything connected with tfaese developments, and also detailing the declara tions of General Jackson on the subject, previous to hid lamented death. From the facts now in our posjesaiou, we are K'" fectly sjitislied that the mysterious stars in the letter from General Jackson to Major Lewis, meant no others than Mr. Ritchie and Major Heiss, of Nath ville. We will make die fact perfectly apparent, and show that these mysterious stars ? mysterious no longer ? could not, in any circumstances, have been intended to designate General Cameron, of Penn sylvania and Major Walker. It is very true in a pre vious letter written by General Jackson on the same subject, and addressed to Francis P. Blair, the old hero made use ol some expressions rather dispara ging to General Cameron, because he had some rea son to believe that that gentlemen was engaged in some negotiations for the purchase of the MadUo nian, in connection with Major Doneleon. It will be recollected, however, that Genera! Jackson wrote two letters on this subject. The tirst had reference only to General Cameron, and that this is die iden tical one introduced in the celebrated speech of John C. Itivea, a copy of which we expect to receive in a day or two with the letter. The Lewis letter, published in Nashville, alluded, we are quite certain nuw,to Mr. Ritchie, as the ren egade politician, and to Major Heiss, now conduct ing the Union. Our expote of this business will be extremely interesting and amusing, showing olf at full length the declarations and movements of Mr Polk? Ritchie ? Heiss ? Clay ? Lewis, and the de parted hero. Letter Writers at the Watering Places ? The lucubations of most of the letter-writers fct the watering-places are quite amusing and characteris tic of the craft. These geniuses get their board and lodging gratis, and, as in duty bound, go to work and pulf the munificent hotel-keepers and their es tablishments. Now, all those who have visited any of these places, know very well that when crowded they are the most uncomfortable quarters in the world. Saratoga is, perhaps, the most purgatoria place on the continent. What with the noise, dust and confusion ? ill-cooked dinners ? damp bed rooms, damp sheets, negligent and insolent ser vants, and a host of minor nuisances, this famous resort is, indeed, any thing but a paradise. We in tend to give a full and perfectly truthful report of these watering places. We will tell the truth of all the hotels we have been at. We care nothing about their kindnesses, or their gratuitous attentions and their free tickets. We are always able to pay our travelling expenses, and do not wish to be indebted to any one. Literary Curiosities from the Far West. ? Some time since we amused our readers with rich literary specimens from the address of Parson Brownlow. We have now another gem of the same description to offer. Here it is : ? CIRCULAR LETTER OF JESSE BATTEN, TO THE PEOPLE OK IBERVILLE, LA. I l'i.Ai<UKMi>F July 20th 1845. Friends and fellow countrevmen we are a bout to form a new constiution So as that fcvery native of his euntrey can ceo the truw Lite of his contrey and the Light for his fellow contery mens fntrest and to rouse Evrey trew harted american patriot and to try a new way of polatick* and to th iow of this fiendish Jealous Disposition and go hart and hand to raitie the Bauer of Liberty and throw o< this party quesion If trew patriot honours the Old houry headed veiens that hase taught and bled for our now rising generation) but go to the nols hart and hand not Like feinds but Like friends and Look on our Para dice aud mark and cee what Improvement that can bee made on It. It Is the gratest State In the union for I)* production why Should we not have Sum improve met en it.

This is cfrtninly one of the richest things we have met with in a long time. As the schoolmaster srniil ofCassius M. Clay, so we think, we may say of Jesse Batten ? " We'll hear of that fellow yet." Grant Thorburn alias "Lai 1112 Todd." ? The famous Grant Thorhurn gaw* us a communication a few days since, which we present to our readers this morning. It seems that Grant, during the lastquar ter of a century, has been communicating his lucu brations to a variety of journalists %ratit, but tired ot this unprofitable labor, hi- applied to us to publish something, provided we would "pay." We acccr dingly a?ked him to put his own value on his pro ductions, which he at once stated, and we paid him ?n the spot, without binding ourselves to purchase ?ny more of his intellectual wares than we chose. Grant is a remarkable mail, He commenced hfe like an industrious man, making and selling nails, *nd now he has attained such a degree o( elevatioi. in the intellectual scale, that he can be ranked with the great literary men of the age? Willis, Morm Park Benjamin, Epes Surgeant, Father Ritchie, ant1 nil the Napoleons of the press put together. Reporters at the Tombs.? The Tribune of Sa turday last, referred to what it terms an associatioi of the reporters at the Tombs, for the purpose 0| levying black mail and "hush money." We have every reason to believe that the charge is not with nut foundation. The difficult; is to break up the system. Both police und reporters have a regularly organised system of financial oi>eration. We have heard of one individual, connected for u long time with the papers as a police reporter, who has man aged to realise out of a few dollars a week, a ver> handsome property. Some time ago, no less thai #301) were paid in a single case, in which a western judge was concerned, for hush money. This infa mous system must he broken up. We are ready to do anything in our power to put an end to the sys tem. We pay our reporters well, and never can tolerate in any instance, their making a dishonora ble use of th<4t position on this journal Anti-Rent TRotmt.Es. ? We give in another co lutnn a few further particulars of the Anti-Rent diffi culty in Andes. Sheriff Steele is dead of the wounds he received. According to this intelligence, affitrs among the "Indians" are in a worse state than ever They are becoming more desperate and tecklets. and stop at nothing to accomplish their ends. Aftei such a cold, deliberate murder as that of Sheiifl Steele, it becomes necessary for Governor Wright t?> do more than simply j0 i^iie pro clamations and offer rew urds. Official Movements ?

Thutrlwl* P*** THtATBt.? To-night, the long expected opcrt, L?t Hugu$iiett will be produced, with M'lle Calw vi'mel Catinland Ccruriot, and Messrs. Arnaud, Douvry, Garry and Bernard. Tim opera will surpass in splacT dour anytbing yet represented by the French Compau) in (hit city. Tliis musical composition, which ha* been declared by 'connoisseurs, to be unsurpassed by any for. mer effort of the author, has strengtnenod the fame of Meyerbeer, whole reputation had already spread far over the world, by hie opera of Robert U Diahlt. The talen1 of the company and musicians, lead us to expect great success for this opera, and we believe that the perform ance will be very numerously attended to-night. This is tli" lust representation but three of the company at the I'atk, and the public will do well to go and hear tills opera before the departure or these artists. Nest Thurs day evening, M'lle Calve'i benefit, on which occasion will be given a spectacle selected among the operas, in which this artist has acquired her great popularity in this country. Bowery Theatre. ? Under the management of its gen tlemanly and enterprising proprietor, this new theatre soems destined to outshine all other similar houses in this city. The elegance of its iuterior, the splendor Of its theatrical material, the talent of the artist sengaged nightly attract numerous audiences, and it is crowded to suffocation from pit to the dome. To-night, Bulwer's celebrated play of Richelieu, with a very powerful caste, will be given. We notice among the artists who are to appear in this play, Messrs. J K Scott, Davenport, Hen kins, Clarke, be. , and Mrs. Sergeant and I'hillips This will be follov. ed by the " Sleeping Beauty," a grand le gendary spectacle, nightly received by the public with rapturous applause. The scenery is of the roost gorge ous description, and surpasses every thing of the kind, ever exhibited to the eyos of a New York audience. Castle Garden. ? The Ethiopean troupe have been engaged for a series of performances, beginning to. ui^ht. The success which the Ethiopeans have already met with in this city, will no doubt induce many to go Mid see them. The remaining parts of the cntertrin. inont for this evening, will consist of the usual budget of overtures, danees, Sec. lie Go and see. Niblo's? Mr. H. Placide's Benefit. ? To-night the sa" loon will be filled of course. The 'Grandfather Whitehead of Placide, is a perfect gem ? nor is hia acting In the Nervous Man a whit less excellent. Brougham, who is the only worthy successor to poor Power, makes h s first appearance this season in the "Man of Nerve,'. There is an easy, sly humor about Brougham, that is ir. resistible. Chippendale acts in the same piece?a capital complete combination of comic strength. All the worid and his wife will be at the Garden this evening. Vai'xhall Garden. ? A delightful place to spend the evening? so think the Bowery folks, who nightly throng there, to forget, in the entertainments and the comfort of the place, the fatigues of their businoss, and shelter themselves from the sultriness of the city atmosphere Pico and DejBegnis are still in New York; they will leave next weeK for Newport, and give one concert on Monday the ISth, before they proceed to Canada. The people and visiters of Newport may expect .from those two celebrated artists a good musical treat. The Mioses Sloman and Mr. Sloman gave their last con cert in Cleveland on Thursday evening. Juno and Turner's Equestrian Company are at Mar shall, Michigan. The Cincinnati Equestrian Company are at Pittsburgh, with whom is McFarland, late of the Pittsbugh theatre. Winchell may be expected at Troy in a few days They will please prepare for a hearty laugh. He is ac companied by the greatest guitarist in the world, Big Bini.

CticuoKKi of Fkedkric William Wau.is. ? Yesterday morning, about 8 o'clock, "tbe friends of the laic Mr. WaJli- began to gather around his formerresi ?lence, No 1 i Dutch street, for the purpose of paying their last tribute of respect to one thev loved. By nine o'clock, the 38th regiment ? commanded by Lieut. Col. Drucker ? iu which Sir. Waltis had formerly held the iioit of Lieut. Colonel? the Pythagoras Lodge of Free Masons. and the Knickerbocker Lodge of Independent Or der of Odd Fellows, had arrived and range'l iu Fulton ,-treet : the military being in full uniform ?the Odd Fel low and Masons, in their citizen dress, such being the wish of Mr. U'aliin. At this time, the friends of the de ceased and his family, entered his late residence, where a prayer was read in a ?olemn and iir,ji'eisive manner, 1 by Rev. Mr. Verren, Pastor ol the French F.piseopal Church, at the corner of Church and Fran! 1m streets. The procession then formed and commenced their march in the following order .?Band? 33th Regiment? Grena dier-, officers of other corps ? Jefferson Otiurl, as a guard of honor? Carriage of the Clergyman -the Under taker, Hearse and Pall Bearers, and" carriages of the v| isnns and Odd Fellows. Tho procession move.' up Chatham street to the Bowery, up the Bowery to First street, across First street to Second Avenue, where they entercil the marble cemetery, the baud plaving a dend march. The body was here deposited in a vault, there to remain only while a short service should bt per formed, a few rounds of musketry fired, and then to be taken to Greenwood Cemetery. The i-crviee of the Episcopal church was now read in French by Mr Verren, after which Dodworth's cornet band, in a solemn and beautiful style, played Old Hun lred. Seven rounds were now fired by the Jef ferson Comim-iy, over the body of their deceased comrade. The military were then dismissed, the march to Greenwood being considered as too fatiguing for them \ line of carriages, filled with members of the Py t'lagn ras Lodge of Masons ; Knickerbocker Lodge of Odd Kel lows, and friends of the family, now followed the hearse down Broadway to the Mouth Ferry, cros-e I over, and Irove slowly to Greenwood Cemetery. When arrived there, the solemn tolling of the bell at the entrance re minded all, that they had co.ne upon a solemn errand The procession moved along till they reached the vault belonging to the Brown family, where the coffin was con veyed by the bearers, to a vault where one of Mr. Wal lis children is buried, on thu hill which overlooks Sylvan Water The body was placed at the entrance of the vault, while the solemn service of tho order of Odd Fel lows, was read iu a beautiful and impressive manner by \Ir. J. B. Dickinson, a member of the Knickerbocker Lodge: and as he closed with "earth to earth, dust to dust, ashes te ashes," tho Noble Grand, Mr James C Stephens, dropped a handful of earth upon the coffin The Mason:c brethren each threw upon it a sprig of ever gieen ; and the body of their departed brother was depo sited in the vault, while tho eye s of many around were wet with tears. Upon the coffin was a silver plate, bear ing the inscription ? Frederic William Wallis, died Aug 7th, 184i>, aged 4ft years, 10 months, 20 days. Mr. Rader, Paymaster of the '28'h regiment then, in the name of the fa.nily, rendered thanks to all who had participated in the mournful cere monies, and thelprocession moved away, t feeling of deep solemnity pervading all hearts. Much credit is due to Mr. Pope, the undertaker, for tho order ly and nuiet manner in which the fuueral was conducted. Ur. Wallis was by birth a German, and emigrated to his country some Iu years since ; previously to which he had lived some yonr* in France, and was there en gaged in the revolution of the memorable "three days'' of ? 830. He was one of the founders oftlie Pythagoras Ma ionic Lodge of this city, in which ho hold the office of laster for two years, and at the time of his denth was "ast Master in the same lodge. He had also been a mem ber of the Knickerbocker lodge of Odd Fellows, since its ormation. He was also Orand Representative of the Jraiui Lodge at Frankfort to the Grand Lodge in New Vork. He was known by many, and loved by all who Knew liim. In him the 38th regiment have lost a good 'omrade ? a gentlemanly and efficient ofHcer-the Ma <onic and Odd Fellowa Lodges a brother, whose loss 'hey will long feel ; our city has lost a good and orderly ?itizen? his family a kind, affectionate husband and father, and a dutiful, loving son. The Great Fire.? There is a fact connected with the ause of ihe spreading of the late great fire, from its dace of commencement, which ought to be generally ?inown. When tbe fire first made its appearance, it was liscovered by the insurance wutch. and the hose under heir control was stietclied to tho fire. but when letting on water the hose bursted, paralysing the efforts of the vatchmen; anil not being able to apply water at that im lortant crisis, tho fire spread to the exploded building, terminating in an extended conflagration, originating, in he opinion of the men present, from that apparently trifling cause, "leaky leaders.'' It is said that an effectu al remedy, immediately applicable during the existence d a fiie, has been iliscovered, in cases of bursts, cuts, or other leaks in leaiiers. But like many useful im provements. it has been neglected to be applied, though known, as it is said, by some of the insurance companies, 'nd which is now before the corporation committee on Kire and Water; and if reports of its efficacy are true, it ought not to have been thus long delayed. In addition to loss of water, and diminished effect in its use, through leaky leaders, firemen are much annoyed, particularly ?n the cold season of the year, by tho forcible spirting ?>f water through leaky leaders. Dsowsri). ? Yesterday afternoon, while bathing at Co ney Island, a young man named John Mclllwruith, a car penter. Deceased was a swimmer, but was supposed to livu been taken with cramp, as be went down almost without a struggle.

The old Yankee spirit is developing itself. Always stir ring, ever changing ? never satisfied. Truely, we Americans are a singular and curious race. Motion, the object of our existence ? change our passion. ? Every where nature spreads before us a scenery en riched by her choicest treasures, but we fly our home for distant regions in search of pleasure, wealth and happinees. The lovely, delicious plains of our fruitful West ? her placid streams and warb ling gloves, presenting a perfect paradise of exis tence almost untenanted by man, is daperted by its sparse population, who sell their farm* to new comers, and with their household goods and gods, float down the rivers in search of a more di-tant home. In their headlong career, the Rocky Moun tains present no birrier They cross with rapid Hteps its snow-crowned summits, flood the plains of Oregon, and stop not till they come within the roar of the vast Pacific. So we (iothnmites quit our noble harbor.teeming with the most beautiful views: the green and velvet fields of Staten Island; which the hand of man might render an EHen, and hurry off to the distant noise and bustle of Saratoga, be cause inexorable Fashion there holds her motley court. Of a verity, if the English are an eating?

the Irish a drinking ? the French a talking ? the Ita lians a einging ? the Germans a metaphysical ? we Americans are a travelling population. "Thus does a false ambition rule us, Thus pomp delude and folly fool us." The last fe w days, however, have brought us, thank heaven, a different set from those described in our last letter. We have now a fair representation of the beauty, fashion and wealth of the different States.

Th a is decidedly wrong, and we hope that the interval between the return of another season, will be em ployed by those whose interest it is, in removing the evil. We do not desire, however, this place to be come popular in the sense that other watering places are Already complaints are made by well-bred people, who have been in the habit of resorting to particular Springs lor years, that they have become absolutely intolerable on account of the mi\*d so ciety, which is drawn together by the Rlitter of fashion, or the pros[>ect of successful adventure He who has fled fur a short respite to the retirement of the country, ol course does not wi?h to have im posed upon him the transported essences of every impurity from the city, no matter how glittering ike labels in which they may he hawked about. As yet, there is very little annoyance of this kind t? be l>e met with here. The company is too small for vulgarity to go abroad unnoticed, and individuality is not lost in the hurry scurry of fashionable move ments Therefore, we say to all disguised " snob bery," keep aloof, for you have no chance of ming ling your base elements with the refinements of your betters; and whether you be a barber's clerk, or a tailor, a Park Row politician, or the "boots" of a Broadway hotel, your nefariousness is certain to be detected Among the recent gossip, I have picked up the following A young couple of your city very inno cently fell in love, and to make the affair more ro mantic ? "Tha course of true lore never did run smooth,'' they had to encounter the mott determined opposi tion on the part of the lady'.- s parents. Tlie father raved, and swore that his daughter should not be sacrificed, and brought her away from the heat of the city to cool her passion in these mountain breezes. The lover was determined not to be out done, and pursued them hither, Inking care to keep himself incognito to all but the wistful eye of the mistress of his heart. He passed the live long night under her window, which was too elevated to be at tempted in the style of eastern gallantry ? pouring forth sighs, not to the silent moon, but to the over hanging arch of his lady's bosom. At length all was arranged. A carriage was got in readiness, and drawn up behind an obscure angle of the build ing, while thr1 opportunity of some confusion in the crowded drawing room was taken advantage of for ihe lady to make her escape. In an instant she was snatched into the fervent, rapturous embrace of the slay Lothario, who was bearing her off in triumph to the carriage, when a rough hnnd fell upon lie r should er. A struggle ensued, the lady screeched and dropped insensible to the ground. Hurried foot steps were heard along the portico, and soon the scene was surrounded hy friends, who, hearing the noise, had come to the rescue, but not until the in dignant father had inflicted a severe drubbing upon the offender, who was glad to flee away from the place, leaving hia pilfered treasure behind. The truant little minx was close.y confined to her room for a day, and afterwards made her ap pearance just as laughing and playful as if ?'he thought she had practiced a most excel lent joke, and was already in humor for ano ther. 1 saw her in the drawing room the next evening dancing the Polka, and making herself as merry as possible ; but ever and anon, the fringy curtain of her eye, failing upon its bright and liquid orb, threw over a countenance of oriental softness, a shade of pensive thoughtfulness Yesterd?y a Urge splendid barouche was disco verable in the distance, drawn by four finegreyp, and moving along towards the Pavilion as majestically as my Lord Duke's; and ther** was no little anxiety to know who was the distinguished owner of it The riddle was soon told The barouche was drovf up to the door, the step* let down by a servant in livery, and out w.Jks a well known manufacturer of quack medicines from New York, lie stopped, we are informed, to take some refreshments at ( 'anajouarie, and wliil#* there, he observed a little boy searching for something in his carriag * He demanded tamer crustily of the " little rasc.il" what he was doing there, to wntcli th?* boy modestly r<* filled, that " ne w-ih looking for some of his father's trusses."
