ST. NICHOLAS HOTEL,
BROADWAY,
~ NEW YORK
When completed, six years ago, the St. Nicholas was
universally pronounced the most magnificent, conve
nient, and thoroughly organized establishment or the
kind on this continent.
What it was then, it remains today—without a rival
in size, in sumptuousness, and in the general elements
of comfort and enjoyment.
The Hotel has accommodations for ONE THOUSAND
31X HUNDRED GUESTS, including ONE H (INDEED
COMPLETE SUITES OF AP A R TMENTS for
families. 7
SIX HUNDRED PERSONS can be comfortably seated
at the tables of its three publicdining rooms, and nothing
that modern nrt‘has devised for the convenience and so
cial gratification of the traveling public has been omitted
in its plan, or is neglected in its practical details.
The early reputation of the house at home and abroad,
derived from its magnitude, its superb appointments,
and its home-15kg comforts and luxuries, has been en:
hanced every year by the unwem-ied exertions of the
Proprietors.

TUESDAY MORNING, NOV. 6, 1860
THE HANDSOME MAN.
Mr. Ferdinand Fitzroy was one of those
models of perfection of which a. human father
and mother can produce but a. single example—
Mr. Ferdinand Fitzroy was therefore an only
son. He was such an amazing favorite with
both his parents that they resolved to ruin him;
accordingly, he was exceedingly spoi ed. never
annoyed by the sight of a. book, and had as
much plum cake as he could eat. Happy would
it have been for Mr. Ferdinand Fitzroy could
he always have eaten plum cake, and remained
a. child.
A most beautiful creature was Mr. Ferdinand
Fitzroy! such eyes-—sueh hair—such teeth—
such a. figure—such manners, too—and such an
irresistible way of tying his neck~cloth ! When
he was nhout sixteen, a crabbed old uncle
represented to his parents the propriety of
teaching Mr. Ferdinand Fitzroy to read and
write. Though not without some diflicully, he
convinced them—for he was exacedingly rich,
and riches in. an uncle are wonderful arguments
respecting the nature of a nephew whose pa
rents have nothing to leave him. So our hero
was sent to school. He was naturally a very
sharp, clever boy; and he came on surprisingly
in hi: learning. The sehoolmaster‘s Wife liked
handsome children. “What a. genius will
Master Ferdinand Fitzroy be, if you take pains
Wit-h him 3” said she to her husband.
"Pooh, my dear, it is no use to take pains with
him.”
"And why, love?”
“Because he is a great deal too handsome
ever to be a. scholar.“
“And thuL’a true enough, my dear !” said the
sohoolmnster‘s Wife.
So, because he was too handsome to be a
scholar, Mr. Ferdinand Fitzroy remained Line
leg of the fourth form. They took our hero
from school. ‘
“What profession shall he follow '2” said his
mother. -
“My first cousin is the Lord Chancellor,”
said his father; “let. him go to the but.” The
Lord Chancellor dined there that day. Mr.
Ft-rdinand Fitzroy was introduced to him. His
lordship was 'a little, rough-faced, beetle
browul, hard-featured man, who thought
beauty and idleness the same thing—and a.
parchment skin the legitimate complexion for
a. lawyer.
“Send him‘to the her,” said he; “no, no,
that; will never do—seud him into the army, he
is mueh too handsome to become a lawyer.”
“And that’s true enough my lord,” said the
mother. So they bought hererdiuand Fitzroy
a. cornetcy in the -—-—- regiment of dragoons.
Things are not learned by inspiration. Mr.
Ferdmand Fitzroy had never ridden at. school,
except when he was hoisted ; he was, therefore,
a very indifferent horseman ; they sent him to
the riding school, and everybody laughed at
him»
“He is an ass E” said Cornet Horsephiz,
who was very ugly. “ A horrid puppy!” said
Lieutenant St. Squ'mtem, who was still uglier.
“If he does not ride better, he will disgrace
the regiment,” said Captain Rimlhate, who was
very good lookmg. “If he does not ride bet
ter, We will cut him,” said Captain En-rdrill,
was a wonderful martineb. “ I say, Mr. Bump
enWell, (to the riding master,) make that
youngster ride less like a. miller’s sack.”
“ Pooh, sir, he will never ride better."
“And why will he not ?”
“Bless you, Colonel, he is a great deal too
handsome for a cavalry officer.”
“ True,’f said Colnet Horsephiz. “Very
true,” said Lieutenant St. Squintem. “We
must cut him,” said the Colonel. And Mr.
Feminand Fitzoy was accordingly out.
O'ur hero was a youth of susceptibility—he
quitted the - regiment, and challenged the
Colonel. The Colonel was killed. ‘5 What a
terrible blaokgunrd is Mr. Ferdinand Fitoroy,”
said the Colonel’s relations.
“Very true,” said the world. The parents
were in despair. They were not rich; but our
hero was an only son, and they sponged hard
upon the crubbed old uncle. “He is very
clever,” said they both, “and may do yet.”—
So they borrowed some thousands from the
uncle, and bought. his beautiful nephew meat
in Pnrlinmenh
Mr. Ferdinand Fitzroy was ambitious, and
desirous of retrieving his character. He fagged
like a dragon, conned pamphlets and reviews,
and made notes on the English Constitution.
He rose up to speak.
" What a. handsome fellow,” whispered one
member.-
“Ah, a eoxcomb,” said. (mother.
“ Never do fora speaker,” said a third, very
audibly. And the gentlemen on the opposite
benches sneered and hatred! Discouraged by
his reception, Mr. Ferdinand Fitzroy grew" 9.
little embarrassed. “ Told you so,” said one
of his neighbors. '
“Fairly broke down,” said another.
“ Too fond of his hair to have anything in
his head,” said'a third, who was considered a
wit.
" Hear-! hear!” cried the gentlemen on the
opposite benches.
Mr. Ferdinand Fitzroy sat down—he had not
shone; but, in justice, he had not failed. Many
a first-rate speaker had begun worse. and many
a country member had been declared a. phoenix
of promise upon half his merit. “ Your Adon
ises never make orators,” said a crack speaker
with o. wiry nose.
“ Nor a man of business either,” added the
chairman of a commmittee, with a face like a
kangaroo’s. ' -
“Poor devil!” said the civilest of the set.
“ He’s ndeuced deal too handsome fora-speaker.
By Jove, he’s going to speak again! this will
never do 3 we must cough him down.” ’ And
311'. Ferdinand Fitzroy was accordingly coughed
own.
Our hero was now seven or eight. and twenty,
handsomer than ever, and the udamlion of all
the 3'oqu ladies atAlmack’s. “We have 110-
Lhing to leave you,” said the p:chnt_S, who had
long spen: their fortune. and M)" live’dvon the
credit of having once enjoyed It. "1 on are
the handsomest man in London ; 3'o“ must.
marry an heiress.” _ .
“ I will,” said Mr. Ferdinand Fltzroy.
Miss Helen Convolvu}u3 was a. charming
young lady, With a. bare hp and six thousand
a. year. To Miss Helen Convolvulus- then our
hero paid his {deI‘cSSGS- Heaven! what an
uproar‘her 11213210198 made about the matter.—

liberty and six thousand a year, not to be
highly impatient for a husband; but our hero
ine haul no aversion to a lover; especially to
so handsome a lover as Mr. Ferdinand Fitzroy.
Accoulingly, she neither accepted not discar
ded him; but kept. him on hope, and suffered
him to get into debt with his tailor and his
couchmaker, on the strength of becoming Mr.
Fitzroy Convolvulus. Time went on, and ex
cuses and delays were easily found ; however,
our hero was sanguine, and so were his parents.
A breakfast at Chiswick and a. fever curried of
the latter, within one Week of each other; but
not. till they had blessed Mr. Ferdinand Fitzroy,
and rejoiced that they had left him so well
provided for. Now, then, our hero depended
solely upon the crubhcd old uncle and Miss
Helen Convolvulus ;—the former, though a.
haronct and a. snrtirist, was a banker and a
man of' business :—-he looked very disumtet‘ully
at the Hyperion curls and white teeth of Mr.
Ferdinand Fitzroy. “If I make you my heir,"
said he, “I expect you will continue the
bank.”
“Certainly, sir.” said the nephew.
“Ilumph l" grunted the uncle, “a pretty
fenow for a banker 2”
Debtors grew pressing to Mr. Ferdinand
Fitzroy, and Mr. Ferdinand Fitzroy grew press
ing to Miss Helen Convolvulus. “ Itis 9. dan
gerous thing,” said she, timidly, “ to marry 9.
man so ndmiredawill you always be faithful!"
“By heaven 2” cried her lover.
“ Heigho !” sighed Miss Helen Convolvulus,
and Lord Rufus Pumilion entering, the con
versation was changed. But, the day of the
marriage was fixed; and Mr. Ferdinand Fitz~
my bought a new curricle. By Apollo! how
handsome he looked in it! A month before
me wedding-day the uncle died. Miss Helen
Convolvulus was. qui‘m tender in her condo
lences—“ Cheer up, my Ferdinand,” said she,
“ fur your sake Ihtwe discarded Lord Rufus
Pumilion I”
“ Adorable condescension I" cried our hero;
“but Lord Rufus Pumilion is only four feet
two, and has hair like a. peony." _
“ All men are not so handsome as Mr. Ferdi
nand Fitzroy l” was the reply.
Away goes our hero to be present at the
opening of his uncle’s will. "I leave," said.
the lestator (who, we have before said, was a.
bit of a- satirist), “my share of the bank, and
the whole of my fortune, legacies cxcepied, to
(here Mr. Ferdinand Fitzroy wiped his beauti
ful eyes with a. csmhrio handkerchief, exqui
sitely brads) my natural son, John Spriggs, an
industrious, pains-taking youth, who will do
credit to the bank. I did once intend to have
made my nephew, Ferdinand, my heir; but so
curling a. head can have no talent for accounts.
I want my successor to be a man of business,
not beauty; and Mr. Ferdinand Fitzroy is a
great. deal too handsome for a banker; his
good looks will no doubt, win him any heiress in
town. Meanwhile, l leave him, to buy a droo
sing-case, a. thousand pounds!”
“A thousand devils!" said Mr. Ferdinand
Fitzroy, banging out of the room. He flew to
his mistress. She was not at. home. “ Lies,”
says the Italian proverb, ”have short legs ;"
but truths, it‘they are at all unpleasant, have
terrible long ones! The next day Mr. Ferdi
nand Fitzroy received a most obliging note of
dismissal.
“I wish you every happinessfl’ said Miss
Helen Convolvulus, in conclusion, “but. my
friends are right; you are much too handsome
for a husband.” And the week after, Miss
Helen Convolvulus became Lady Rufus Pumi
liou. ‘
“ Alas, sir!” said the bailifl’, as a day or two
after the dissolution of Parliament he was jog
ging along with Mr. Ferdinand Fitzroy, in a.
hackfley-coach bound to the Bench. “Alas!
sir, whatapity it is to take so handsome a
gentleman to prison !”
BRITISH Comm“. Govnmvons Is Canon
AND Suns—Our colonies have forty-six gov
ernors and thirty-six bishops. They are dis
tributed thus:-—ln North Americavre have seven
governors and nine bishops; in the West Indies,
seventeen governors and five bishops; in the
Australian Colonigs and New Zululand, seven
gevernors and twelve bishops; in Africa, and.
Mediterranean possessions, nine governors and
six bishops; and in Eastern Colonies, Falkland
Islands, and Heligolnnd, six governors and
four bishops. There are five bishops in New
Zenland, a greater number than in India, which
country and the lonian Islands are not included
in this and other returns relating 10' “colonies.”
The salaries of the governors of our colonies
amount together to about £130,000. Among
them Victorinis the golden governorship; the
salary is £lO,OOO a. year. The governors of
Canada, New South Wnlcs and, Ceylon have
£7,000 a year; of the Mauritius, £6,000; of
Jamaica, the Cape, Hang-Kong and Gibraltar,
£5,000; the other salaries are lower, and shade
down to £5OO. The incomes of the bishops are
much less than the sums just named; the high
est is that of the Bishop of Barbadoes—£2,soo
a. year. Their incomes are almost all provided
either from colonial funds or the interest of
money voluntary contributed in this country,
and placed at the service of the Church for this
purpose; but seven—the bishops of Quebec,
Newfoundland, Jamaica, Kingston, Barbadoes.

Ax Usuuuem Drsn.-A gentleman named
Campbell, and his family, lived in .3 remote
native district of Bengal. One morning afish~
ermnn appeared at the bungolow With 6533 f 0
sell. They were round, white eggs, the me
of a tennis ball, and the fisherman declared them
to be lurtles’ eggs. They were purchased,
and, being quite a novel production, the family
were desirous of testing their newly purchased
dPllcaCiCS, and the servant was directed to boil
half a. dozen of them‘ for breakfast. They
were. in part, eaten by the family, when a.
fearful nausea. pervaded the whole of them.—
Thc eggs were in consequence at once discarded
as inedible. Mr. Campbell, however, from
motives of curiosity, procured a capacious car
dreu gumlhh (shallow dish,) in which he de
posited the ova, spreading a quantity of clean,
dry send over the some. The vessel in ques
tion was afterward placed on the flat roofing
of the house, exposed to solar heat. In the
course of three weeks after this event he as
cended the ladder and took a. survey of his in
culmtory stock. when, to his surprise, and 110
less disgust, he beheld a swarm ot‘large. loath
some lizards crawling about the stuccoed roof.
The fact at once Occurred to him that the eggs
he had eaten were those of on aligator.
