Once upon a time there was a certain Court
which kept a stag for hunting. Ho wan no
timid animal that sprang leaping through
glade and thicket, at the tlrst sound of tlio
banter's horn. lie was a solemn and decorous
beast. Long confinement in a cage had sub
dued his spirit and stiffened all bin joints. Uo
could not have run even to save his life; but
as his life was regularly spared, he never
exerted himself to get away from his pursuers,
lie and the hounds wero well aeqmilu')d, and
as they grew old, respected caeli other's In
firmity. The stag, considerate In regard to
them, had his kimlucss reciprocated by never
bobig pressed too lianL Thus, ou many a day,
did the venerable animol gently trot before
the hunters of the Court, uud they as gently
trotted after him ; and when the usual courso
was run, Court, hounds, and staj returned
sociably together.
This humane sport, long discontinued, has
Veen revived. It has lately been Introduced
Into Canada. Several individuals of a species
known as the St. Albau's red, having
Crossed into Canada from the United States,
were entrapped and carefully examined as to
their capability for affording spor. The head
game-keeper, Counaot., and twelve under
strappers, having decided that tho boasts aro
well adapted ior purposes of tho chase, they
were released. The latest news trom Canada
Informs us that tbe Governor-OenuraJ has an
nounced a great battue. We expect that till
port will be received with much favor by tli
Canadians. It may last for years, u the onl
limit to its duration Is the superannuation o
the game. Citizens of the United States beluj
regarded as reckless In their method of hunt
ing, are prohibited from trespassing upon the
Canadian preserve.
The attacks upon Jkfflhson Davia and
the lnuendoes which have been made In some
of the Southern papers in regard to bis Admin
istration, are still being repeated. A late
number of the Richmond Examiner declares
that the secret scioa of Congress Is a cause
of as much solicitude as tho mysteries ol Sa
vaunah or the unknown campaigu of Ten
net Fee. The rumors which are prevalent
of the Congressional transactions arc de
aciild not only ns vsgue but unpleasant. It
is intimated, in the first place, that
the nibfuse of the executive power hn? been
the cause of calamities to tbe country, and
that those calamities have themselves been
pleaded as a reason for the further extension
of that power. The lMchiuond Whiy, to be
sure, with tho mixture of tho highwymaa
and the gocd Samarltnn.allerknoeUing Sr.vr.
rulers may have erred In their jud;jmf nt of
Davis down and mangling him severely, pour
oil into his wounds, and arguus that though
men, and have been to mucii guided by their
prejudices, still that does not absolve thi)
people from allegiance to the can?. At the
same time it takes a most dismal and uiicon-
gratulatory view of the situation. 1: dwells
upon tho march of Siii:i:m.'.", and aJadls
its triumphant Usi mi nation. It laments
that Hood's army has lost tlio compact
ness, ctllciercy, and spirit which it says
tvere so evident under Jon.vHTON. It mourns
over the failure ol the Teunev ;ee move, n b.iits
that the battle ol r'runUliu iniyinvo linen
kruTaut, but was useless, and t'liu'.i lii.: ril
of tbe Yankees has the aiipesrunc ) of a sur
prise.. It is no wondev that th'? review of the
situation, coupled with the secret se-sious of
the lU'bel Congress, disturbs the equanimity
of the palious ul' Kichiiiond p'lper.J, lvals
to vituperation against Me. Jufjcu.son
David, excites disBatisl'actiou with his tools
and minions, and slowly undermines tho fabric
of Rebellion with a train of disgust and sus
An inflexible persistence In any course o
conduct Which eviDces courage, always exer
cises a degree of fosclLatlon. Even when our
cla?riUd convictions luform us that the
Policy is wicked, we admire whiht we depre
cats, and applaud whilst we denounce. Our
dulration for whatever partakes of valor
and heroic accomplishment blinds us to the
-- al taturt of the matter in contest. Boino

What then are we to say to the Alabamlans

The customs of the Middio Agtss, however
natural they might have appeared to tlio
knights and 'squires of those days, certainly
I;i iir a ulnking resemblance to the ludicrous,
or ra her to tlio eccentric, when viewed by the
u.oio civilized eyes ol the nineteenth century.
Tho habits and fashions of that tlmo have
taken root, and woven their Ubrcs lnta tho
social condition and domestic economy of the
A'nglo Saxon peoplu. In Great liritain theso
peculiarities are much more prevalent than In
our own land. When wo broke away from
the mother country, In our anger we not only
abjured her Government, but also many of
those customs which have almost become a
part and portion of tbe English Constitution.
Hence wo escaped many of the absurdities
which have been grafted into tho society of
liritain, and like a new people, Rtarted now
doctrines, habits, ami customs of our own.
Some few of theso peculiarities still cling to
us, some of them endeared by time, and others
rendered nuisances, but tolerated by long con
tinuance. Wo propose to glance at a few of the cus
toms. One of the most remarkable Is tho habit of
tolling the State House bell during election
day. To the imaginative person It is supposed
to be calling upou the citizens of our great
country to come from their homos or business
and do'lbeir duty at the polls todovoteono
day to their fatherland and act not as indi
viduals, but as parts of tlio commonwealth.
But we are free to confess that to us it resoin
blcs the tolling which Is the usual accompa
niment of a funereal procession. It rather
calls- on our citizens to march behind tho
collln of tbe nation than to exercUo their
dearest right. Let it chime national airs
let "Hull Columbia!' and the "Star Spangled
I3aniicr"be rung forth to the people, and cease
that melancholy noise, every stroke of which
teems to be tho last, and th bearers stark
wheu the next ono breaks tho stllluoss of
our air.
Another peculiar and ridiculous custom Is
the fiigbtlul howls which are daily uttered by
tho criers of our National and State courts.
When the judges appear and take their seats,
the v. bole solemnity of tho proceeding Is dis
pelled by a large man with a long stick, seated
In a high chair, suddenly bellowing forth a
noise, which. may be represented ou paper as
"Ho yah 1 Uo yuh 1 Ho yah 1 tho'r Honors
are cnteilng the Court I" and Hot withstand
ing tho fact that every one in tlio building
distinctly beholds their honors, this culwpris
ing Individual continues to roar In this insane
manner until he sinks back exhausted in his
lofty scat. The sceno Is exquisitely ludicrous,
and turns Into a farce the otherwise solemn
cenmou) of administrating justice.
A ii est pernicious custom is that of ringing
the dooi -bells ou "All Hollowecn." We sup
pose it originated in the superstition in regard
to that night, and the nearest approach to
fiends were selected to persecute that most
susceptible class of our community, house
servaulH. We are glad, however, that all tra
ditionary support has proved iusulllelout to
protect tho.-cwiio are addicted to this pleasing
custom and the trong urra of tho law seizes
upon all who are playing the Imp, even on a
night specially devoted to their bene lit.
It woss long cus oniary to ring tho bells
during a thunder-storm, but as several sextons
vicio struck by lightning, and as no particular
C od has been derived therefrom, tho habit
was abandoned.
The most ridiculous wo can cull to mind Is
the cuhti m of nailing an aged horseshoe over
the door of the residence, for the purposo of
keeping out the " gentleman in black." Many
of our citizens will rltlieule the idea of any person ol tho nineteenth century being
guilty of ny such fully, but there ore at the
jTCM'iit time a large number of houses In our
city ou the inside of whose doorways is nailed
a rusty boishoe. With this, tho most absurd
of superstitions, we close our enumeration of
peculiar customs.
WAIt I.I I Kit t ri ii K.
When Mars becomes tho tutelar deity o( a
people, all other powers bow before it. Tho
civil Jaw becomes martial, tho doctor a sur
geon, the divine a chaplain, nnd tho citizen a
soldier. The spirit of battle, like an epidemic,
pastes over tie land, transforming plough
shares Into swords and pruning-hooks into
spears, filling the hearts of the combatants
with military ardor, In place of tho quiet devo
tion to the arts of peace. No more do tho
gentle strains of the harp and flute delight tho
listening ear; the nation demands the stirring
tones of tbe bugle or the iuspiritlng notes of
the clarion of feme. Every department of
aclcuce is more or less affected Chemistry no
longer exhausts itself in endeavoring to please
the eye with the harmless wonders of pyro
technic art ; all bur energies are directed to
discovering the composition of "Greek fire"
or Improving the manufacture of "gun cot
ton." The artist no longer dollghts tho eye
with quiet landscapes, or with fowl and cat
tle. The scene of strife or the pranciag war
horse are bow tbe field In which genius loves
to rove. Every department of the peaceful
arts has been affected, and It 1 therefore not
to be expected that literature, that most
mobile ol all accomplishments, should cscam
an Inlliienee so general in Its application and
o potent in Its results.
Tbe whole style of the works pnbliihed by
our leading printing bouses to-day Is diirerent
from that which Issued from their prcses a
few years since. To prove tho assertion It Is
only necessary to glance at tho column upon
column of advertisements announcing flu
publication of new works. Two-thirds of
that which flows from tho pin of an American
author has reft mice lo the war. Novels, his
tories, ai counts of adventuies, biographies,
and political text books nlike abound with
dct-crlptioiis of aocial condition, milil.arv
ability, future prospects, or daring adrenLnri,
Viblcli relate to c ivil war. The demand for
nub woiks Is Inordinate. I'roin the dime
novel up to the standard history, each devotes
its space to military questions. Tim romances
ol to-day have a stereotyped pint, ; no m rc
" si enl horseman" wind their " solitary ways
o'er distant bills." A soldier, of duh'mg
appearance, who has Just escnn;d from guer
rillas, is tin) hero of tho tain. ICscapil
Southern ihimsrls, seeking protection under
tlio lliilon flag, supply tho melancholy
maidens of bygutin times. All talent for

amount of worthless trah h:is flooded our

iorn "IOik yi lopedia" lias not. the lull 'ion :u on
the greater part of our population as h ivollm
iliine novels which are weekly published. It
is therefore, to bo rcreUed that the tastos of
nil our people nio becoming so martial. War
loses Its horror beneath uu inspection through
colored glasses. Tlio red of the blood is nou
tiidizi d, and a glowing plcluro of fame nnd
'in tune succeeds the bloody aspect which in
reality it wears, lieiiown and position appear

long rows of unmarked graves, youth points'

and necessary that tlio evil thus produced be
There is another class which, though harm
less in its influyice, has become insipid m Its
nature. This class consists of narratives of
adventures in tho "suuny South." Kvery
escaped prisoner, every exchanged captivo
thinks It necessary to ulllict the public with a
narrative of bis adventures. However enter
tabling such u tale might be to th family and
friends of the nuihor, tho general public take
no inlcrcbt whatever in their ordinary inel
d"iils of captivity. One work Is a type of the
elntis. '1 ho "Stars and liars" may bo takon as
an example of this fungous growth. No par
ticular adventure appears to havo occurred to
Uio writer; in fact, we doubt if tho production
is not a work of llction. Tlmo spent in the
perusal of all such works is timo wasted.
Many ol tin in muke no pretension to literary
merit, and not only vitiate tho taste, but also
degrade the style of tho reader.
There jet remains another diss which
threatens to work a much moro permanent
detriment to our literature. Our beat authors
aro beginning to writo eutlrely on tho war
001 war matters. Histories of our contest,
pamphlets lu bound form on futuro prospects,
nnd a large cumber of political productions,
all of which arc lasting iu form and influoiiee,
are daily appearing. Such works as those are
read not by tho reading public, but by tho
writing few. Their minds ore Influenced in
that direction und their works In turn bear
mm Us of the j revuiling epidemic, nonce tho
public are assailed by the original ,.ork in a
thousand i!iH'erent shapes, and It docs its in
jury in as muuy various channels.
Hut although tho literary prospects of our
land look dark, yet tho futuro may clear the
horizon of the lowering cioulils which now
durken it. Tho fever for all such works may
lie but temporary, when tho occasion for their
birth is past; then tho interest which keeps
them alive may become exhausted. Tho
public mind, sick of war matters, may return
with renewed gest to the perusal of works of
peaceful iutcnt. Tho arts uud sciences may
again bo cultivated; tho pen bo again takon
up by tbe bund so lonj; accustomed to bear
the sword, and tho wholo of our literature
come out of the contest purer and more re
fined by the ordeal through which it has passed.
Tlio mind advances through blood, and let
us hope that the great improvement which
will lollow the war in our ci v il society, may also
extend to our literary worth; and that re
newed and regenerated American authors
will surpass the mighty minds which have
It nt their pens to enrich the vast store of
Britain's literuturo.

HAL lU.vm.CK, WASiiiNor tti, December l i, tit4.
Sir : Your letler of 1 lectin Ixr 7, iu relauoa to
the sump uuiy on uu "oil luiuw," so culled, bag

The party asse mbled at tho palace cnnslitcd of

bcautitul women and the finest looking men one
sees in any country. It Is said here, by those woo
ought to know, that the unreserved conversation

of the kind reception of his lleot in America, was
quite extraordinary, and occasioned much sur

At tbe seventeenth anniversary festival at the
Royal General Tboatricul Fund, held in Lsndon,
recently, Mr. Iluckstono, the woll-kuown come
dian and dramatic author, rotated the following
Klghteen years ago I was playing at the I) im t
fi ics Theatre, on a balurduy evening. Tho ho aso
was well tilled, jiaittcularly tho dress boxes, but
the occupants ot that pint of tlie houso, instead o
being ltst.i ss or Inattentive, as they sometimes are
in the London theatres, wcro uproarious in
their laughter, and loud in their applause Kvory
joke or humorous passage was taken by them
with immense expression of delight, and the play
"went oil," ns it is termed, triumphantly.
At the end ot it I remaiked to the munsger what
an excellent audience it bad Iseon and how every
point was understood and appreciated, but parti
cularly by the purlies in tbo dress boxes; they
luuglud louder than any other persons la the
theatre. "Yes," said the manager, "they did onjoy
tlicmsclviB umn.ingly. Do you know waut they
all lire r" "No." I answered. "Well, sir," said
be, ' they are all mad people. It Is tho system of
our doctor at ihe lunatic asylum here (tbe Cre h
tuu Institution) tu amuse bis patterns in every
way in bis powtr; so be took pretty well all the
seals in the dress circle, and brought tlioiu hero
to entertain them, and be afterwards Informed me
how much bis puny bud been dcllgued, and bow
be was sure tbuirj eoniiiig to the play had idoue
them a great deal of good."
The Continental Magazine is dead. It began
life In 1861, under tho editorial management of
Mr. J. It. Gilmore, and proprietorship of Robert
J. Walker. For awbilo Charles (1. Leluad, one
of the most versatile and genial writers In this
country, had editorial charge of it, but of late it
has been edited by Martha i . Cook, a sister of tbo
owner, Mr. Walker.
The aborigines of Australia are fast disappear
ing before the advance of civilization. Already
Ihcir race has become extinct in Tasmania:
whilst in tbo other colonies only a few scattered
families survive as representatives of the nume
rous tribes who some years ago roamed at will
over tbe wholo continent, from Lake Alexan
dria to Ihe Snowy Mountains. Along both
banks of the noble Murray river, the yunyahs of
the black men are giving place tn sheep farms
und cattle-stations; and in another generation,
no traces of their existence will remain, except
perhaps, tbe bark -covered mounds which, mark
their buriul jiluces, or tbe weapons preserved in
public museums, or lu tbe collections of tha
Flbi ologis's suppose that Australia was lirst
peoplid bjj Btray voyageia from the In li in
teas, who iu their snmtl saiiiugcrai't drifted along
fioin Island to island through tbe hasteru Archi
pelago; and tho hypothesis is strengthened by
the fact, tli ut although the dialects spoken iu
various pans ot Unit continent dillur very mate
rially from each other, yet they ail bear evident
truces of au eastern origin, and many worjs of
Titiiiul and Malaya may he recognised la most of
them. The aborigines never composed w hat may
be eiukd a nation, but have always been only a
i,tiinlier of Heatotreil ivr.itina. each livimr under ii
I form of L'ovcrinucnt. havluir its own
territory und its own language.
Tbe "I.eitebiio-lcitclioos," "iliirri-hairis," and
"Yukku-yukkas,'1 inhabit the vast tract ol
country known as the Lower Murray, (district),
in.ii tiny muy be t.iken as filr specimens of the
riit e. i.ach tribe has its owu special bunting
grounds, und the o dest mun of the party
geoeiully issues directions us to the place of
encampment; the duty of providing food Is
Bksumed by tlie mules, whilst tho females manage
the munyvvi, (bark canoes), and get ready Ihe
gmiyahs' at the appointed station. At sundown,
tarh evening, the various bunting and fishing
putties tome into camp, and the produce of their
labor Is all f iled up in one common heap; from
this the chief assigns a fair proportion to each
family; but first of ull be lays aside an ample
provision for the childless, the widows, and the
orphans of the tribe.
V hither game be n arce or plentiful, all share
alike ; and If a stranger, even a white man, come
uputtue time, be is sure uf a welcome, and a
portion is at once cheerfully offered to him. Tbe
greatest reverence ia paid by them to old age. If
a youth become the possessor of a steel toma
hawk, or a bunk of llsbing-llue, he is not per
mitted to retain it, but is compelled to band it
over to one of hia seniors; and be must give
ample proof of bis courage und activity before be
will be allowed to join in tho councils of his
tribe ; then his admission into tbe ranks of tbe
warriors is celebrated by a grand feast and car
roOvrry, at which two ot Ujs (rout tyeiu axe
I nocked onl ; and the loss of tbee Is his certlfl
i str of manhood.
