That’s Me. After an inimitable description of the re freshment rooms, the landlady is sent to h ranee U> see how affairs are managed there, b le returns,and her servants are called to hear her report; THE BRITISH *»» S ^ pBEHHMfiNT rooms. onr Missis returned. It got circulated ' ,i,, vuuii" ladies, and as it might be neuetrated to me through the crevice* of the ^andohuhig Boom that she had Orrors to re veal if revelations so contemptible could be dignified with the name, Agitation became ■Twakened. Excitement was in the stirrups. Expectation stood a-t.ptoe. At length it was out forth that on our slackest evening m the week, and at our slackest time of that evening, betwixt trains, our Missis would give her views of foreign Refreshmenting, in the Bandoliuing IO«ra‘* • ‘T should not enter, ladies," says our Missis, “On the revolting disclosures I am about to make, if it was not in the hope that they will cause you to be yet more implacable in the exercise of the power yon wield in a constitutional country, and yet more devoted to the constitutional motto which I see before me t it was behind her, but the words sounded bet ter so)‘May Albion never learn!’ Here the pupils as had made the motto ad mired it, and cried: “Hear! hear! hear. Smff, showing an inclination to join in the chorus, mot himself frowned down by every brow. “The baseness of the French,” pursued our Missis, “as displayed in the (awning nature ot their Refreshmenting, equals, if not surpasses, ahy think as was ever heard of the baseness ot the celebrated Bonaparte.” Miss Whiff, Miss Pitf and me, we drored a heavy breath, equal to saying, “We thought as much” Miss Whiff and Miss Piff seeming to * object to my droring mine along with theirs, I drored another to aggravate 'em. “Shall I bo believed,” says onr Missis, with flashing eyes, “when I tell you that no sooner had I set my foot upon that treacherous shore »» Hero Sniff, either busting out maa or mint ing aloud, says in a low voice:‘‘Foot—plural, you know.” The cowering that came upon him when he tvas spurned by all eyes, added to his being be neath contempt, was sufficient punishment for a cove so groveling. In the midst of a silence rendered more impressive by the turned-up fe male Doses with which it was pervaded, our Missis went on: ■ •‘Shall I be believed when I tell you that no sooner had I landed (this word with a killing look at Sniff) on that treacherous shore, than 1 was ushered into a refreshment room where there were, I do not exaggerate, actually eat able things to eat.” A groan burst from the ladies. I not only did myself the honor of jining, but also of lengthening it out. “Where there were,” our Missis added, “not only eatable things to eat, but also drinkable things to drink." A murmur, swelling almost into n scream, ariz. Miss Piff, trembling with indignation, called out, “Name.” “ I will name,” said Our Missis. “There was roast fowls, hot and cold; there was smoking roast veal surrounded with browned potatoes; there was hot soup with (again I ask shall 1 be credited?) nothing bitter in it, and no flour to choke off the consumer ; there was a variety of cold dishes set off with jelly; there was salad; these was—mark me! fresh pastry, and that of a tight construction; there was a luscious show ■ of fruit. There was bottles aud decanters of sound small wine, of every size and adapted to every pocket; the same odious statement will apply to brandy; and these were set out upon the counter so that all could help themselves. Our Missis's lips so quivered, that Mrs. Sniff, though scarcely less convulsed than she were, got up and held the tumbler to them. “This,” proceeded our Missis, “was my fl rst unconstitutional experience. Well would it have been, if it had been my last aud worst.— But no. As I proceeded further into that en slaved aud ignorant land, its aspect became more hideous. I need not explain to this as sembly the ingredients and lormation of the British refreshment saugwich? Universal laughter—except iroiu Suin', who, as sangwich-cutter, shook his head in a state of the utmost dejection as he stood with it agin the wall. "Weill” said Our Missis, with dilated nos trils. “Take a lresh crisp long crusty penny loaf made of the whitest and best flour. Cut it longwise through the middle. Insert a fair and nicely fitting slice of ham. Tie a smart piece of ribbon round the middle of the whole, to bind it together. Add at one end a neat wrapper of clean white paper, by which to hold it, and the universal French refreshment sang wich busts on your disgusted vision." A cry of “Shame!” from all—except Sniff, which rubbed his stomach with a soothing baud. “I need not,” said Our Missis, “explain to this assembly the usual formation and fitting of the British Refreshment Itooiu?” «. “No, no,” and laughter. Sniff again shaking his head in low spirits agin the wall. “Well,” said Our Missis, “what would you say to a general decoration of everything, to hangings (sometimes elegant,) to easy velvet furniture, to abundance of little tables, to abun dance of little seats, to brisk bright waiters, to great convenience, to a pervading cleanliness and tastefulness positively addressing the pub lie and making the Beast thinking itself worth the pains.” contemptuous tury on tne part ot all tne la dies, Mrs. Snilf looking as if she wanted some body to hold her, and everybody else looking as if they’d rather not. “Three times,” said Our Missis, working her self into a truly terrimenjous state, "three times did I sec these shameful things, only be tween the coast and Paris, and not counting either; at Hazebroucke, at Arras, at Amiens. Bnt worse remains. Tell me, what would you call a person who should propose in England that there should he kept, say at our own mod el Mueby Junction, pretty baskets, each hold ing an assorted cold lunch and dessert for one, each at a certain fixed price, and each within a passenger’s power to take away, to empty in the carriage at perfect leisure, and to return at another station, fifty or a hundred miles furth er on? There was disagreement w hat such a person snoald be called. Whether revolutionist, atheist, Bright (/ said him), or un-English.— Miss Pill screeched her shrill opinion last, in the words: “A malignant maniac!” "1 adopt,” says Our Missis, “the bland set upon such a person by the righteous indigna tion of my friend Miss Piff. A malignant mani ae. Know then, that that malignant maniac has sprung from the congenial soil of France, and that his malignant madness was in un checked action on this same part of my jour ney.” I noticed that Sniff w as a rubbing bis hands, and that Mrs. Sniff had not got her eye upon him. But I did i ot take more particular uo tice, owing to the excited state in which the young ladies was, and to feeling myself called upon to keep it up with a how). “On my experience south ofParis,” said Our Missis, in a deep tone, “I will not expatiate. Too loathsome: were the task! But fancy this. Fancy a guard coming round, with the train at lull speed to inquire how many for dinner. Fancy his telegraphing forward the number of dinners. Fancy every one expected, and tlie table elegantly laid for the complete party.— Fancy a chaining dinner, in a charming room, and the head-cook, concerned lor the honor of every dish, superintending in his clean white .jacket and cap. Fancy the Beast travelling six-hundred miles on end, very fast, and with great punctuality, yet being taught to expect all this to be done lor it!” A spirited chorus of the “The Beast!” I noticed that Sniff was again rubbing his stomach with a soothing hand, and that he had drawed up one leg. But again I didn’t take particular notice, looking on myself as called upon to stimulate public feeling. It being a lark beside*. •' ®X*ry(lurTg together," said Our Mis sis,. "French Refreshments comes to this, and O it comes to a nice total! First: eatable things to eat and drinkable things to drink.” A groan from the young ladies, kep’ up by me. “Second: convenience, and even elegance.” Another grojn from the young ladies, kep’ up by me. ’ 1 “Third: moderate charges.” Iliis time a groan from me kep up by the young ladies. “Fourth: and here,” says Our Missis, “I claim your angriest sympathy—attention, com mon civility, nay, even politeness!” Me and the young ladies regularly raging mad altogether. Nnagbtr Girls, A custom prevails in Borne European cities of quietly removing et armis persons who insist on disturbing the audience in theater or opera house .with selfish and untimely noise. If young ladies, or those who have the garb if not the manners of such, continue to indulge at New Fork places of amusement in prac tices which can be described by no milder terms, we really must urge that it will con tute a fit ™«*r to. “ ““r3„us at fo« lice, The nuisance r whichP the con- (B c . fternoon performances wi»° Wh8. „.tors think properto cadi tnotmee hich er the. absenc ot male ’ ,ves ads young women to misconduct the. n^ tb this unseemly almost impos- ^ sow that it has “* e »re espec- * bis to enjoy a day.

Vhat with the giKk>‘ug, the and nd the bustle oftnese^ fa> ^aturbers, the uditorium is made more .,go a village school in >n uproar than a tehiple 0t art where ladies nd gentlemen supposed to assemble to tnjoy th5 works of famous masters; and, what s amusing as well as irritating, the slightest , nark of impatience or reproval of their un easonable antics is apt to be received very nmch as insulting proposals may he lupposeu ;o be by an indignant spinster. . There is something very charming mtliein lications of good spirits, and the laughter of girls has been celebrated by Byron, as well as by older poets, as among the moat melodiously delightful of sounds. But there is a place for everything, and we go to theatres not to lis ten to the aufience but to the players.. Habits such as those grow rapidly worse through be ing unchecked; and we are not surprised to hear that intelligent loreignera are invariably doubtful ot the character of ladies who commit themselves in a manner which, to their eyes, is so equivocal. It is quite as inconsistent with good breeding to spoil the pleasure of one’s company in a large or public place as it iB in a small or private one, and it is surprising that so many who would be outraged by a man’s walking into their drawing-rooms with a cigar in his mouth and his hat on, should so repeat edly be guilty of infriugemeuts which are in no degree less improper. We have heard1® whole act of a favorite opera positively spoiled by the racket of a bevy of pretty girls, while the poor patient men sat silently under the infliction, unable or uuwilliug to venture a word of re monstrance. Surely this absurd and unlady-likc habit should be peremptorily abated. It is not only disagreeable to all of the audience who do not yield to its temptations, but disrespectful and peculiarly annoying to the artists. The latter have a right to expect that those who do not care to listen to them will stay away from their performance; and the contrary practice, as wfl have frequently seen, has the effect to make them careless, slovenly, and even imper tinently familiar with the audience. Thus the character of the representations steadily de teriorates, and art is in consequence the suffer er. We know of no petty evil or abuse inci dent to our growing metropolitan society which is in its way more preposterous and discredita ble than the one we cite Jt is altogether un worthy of the city, and of what are or shquld be the standards of its intelligence and good breeding; and we should be glad to see some signs of reformation which should promise an entire cossation of such childish discourtesy for thp tuture,—liound T’q&te. Brtnarkable Discovery. We mentioned some weeks since the fact an nounced by the Quebec papers, of the discov ery of the tomb and remains of the famous French explorer, Champlain. The circumstan ces attending the finding of these interesting relics are thus detailed by the Boston Tran script: Samuel de Champlain, the noble founder of Canada, was buried at Quebec two hundred and thirty years ago, and the place ot his in termout has remained a mystery, though it appears by the records of the time that a tomb was constructed for him in a chapel which was known by his name. The mystery has just been solved by the indefatigable research of two ecclesiastics of Quebec, the Abbe Laver diere and Casgrain, both of whom are well known as accomplished and able investigators of Car adian history. A most patient and per sistent sitting of ancient records brought them to the conclusion that the chapel and tomb must have been in tte lower town of Quebec, at a certain point immediately under the prec ipice on which the upper towu is built. Ac cordingly they went to the spot in question, and iound that the acqueduct, constructed some ten years ago, had apparently destroyed all traces of the supposed tomb, the chapel which contained it having long since disap peared. Those iamiiiar with Quebec will remember the long stairway which descends from Moun tain Street to Champlain Street. Near the foot of these stairs was the spot which the two archaeologists had been led to believe was the site of the tomb. It only remained to inquire of those engaged in building the acqueduct whether any such remains had been discov ered in the progress of the work. They went to Mr. O’Donnell, Assistant Engineer of the Water Works, who had superintended this part of the structure. He replied promptly that an ancient vaulted tomb had been found at the place in question, containing a coffin of human lames, and that he was so much struck with the character of the discovery that he had included a section of the vault with measure ments and other indications concerning it, in one of his plans. This plan he found and pro duced. He conducted MM. Lavardiere and Casgrain to the place and showed them what was still to be seen of the old vault, within which a new one,for the purposesof the aque duct, had been made, nearly obliterating the inscription on the wall, where, however, some of the letters of Champlain's name may still be distinguished. The bones had been removed immediately after the vault was discovered aud-Mr. O’Don nell could not tell what had become of them.— It appeared, on further inquiry, that they had been given to the Abbe Langevin, the priest of a neighboring parish, well known in Canada as the author of several antiquarian and histori cal publications. He had placed them in a box and kept them for some time, hut afterwards caused them to he buried, still in the box, in the Koman Catholic cemetery for unbaptised infants. He directed the spot to be marked but this it seems was neglected, for when we last heard from Quebec, the box, had not yet been found, though an attempt to'that end liad been made. There can be no doubt that the bones will soon be recovered and that the remains of the founder of Canada will be honored with a monument worthy of him. Boston Stock Lkl.

It will insure any one. ordinary and inferior or impaired lives are the very ones that most need as surance. It will insure better than Ordinary lives by rating younger, thereby lowering the Premium. If health is impaired the Company will insure by rating older, thus raising the Premium. How long is he to live2 is the important question. It Insures on the 5, 10 or 20 equal payment plan and at any time will give a “ paid-up Policy for what his payments justly entitle him. ’ This Company will allow the assured to pay week ly, monthly, quarterly, or annually. It does not restrict those insured' at ordinay rates, either in travel or in residence.
