SAVAGE ON THE SCHOOL BOY9--A writer in
the February number of Blackwood's Magazine,
undertakes to review the many stories of school
boy life, of which "Tom Brown" was the pio
neer. lie commences by pitching into their
subjects in the following ferocious manner:
If any type of human being might have
seemed likely to escape being made the hero of
romance, it was the British schoolboy. His
existence was an admitted necessity, and that
was all. He was tolerated by civilized society
as it tolerates poor relations or cynical maiden
aunts—either for the sake of antecedents or
future expectations. Parents knew . that in
that strange lump of shyness and impudence
there lay the personal identity of the darling
child of past years, so clever and so engaging ;
and that from that unhewn material was to
start in due time, the strength and grace of
hopeful manhood. Bat meanwhile, society in
general voted him a bore, and he returned the
compliment. Apologies, kindly meant, were
tendered him and accepted, as having come to
"that disagreeable age." Even fond mamma
looked at him reproachfully, because he grew
so big, and sighed to think that this creature
was all that remained of her lost pet in sash
and petticoat; while his father, as he cast his
eye over the last half-year's bills, groaned
inwardly becauSe he grew so expensive. Even
in his goming home for the holidays his
anxious family did but "snatch a fearful joy."
While he was within sight and hearing, some
suffering domestic animal—cat or dog, or young
er brother or sister—was pretty sure to give
token of his presence ; and whenever he was
out of the way, or unusually quiet, his friends
felt certain he was in some more serious mis
chief. Beyond this, nobody showed much in
terest in him, except by occasional gifts of half
a sovereign or a crown piece—a sort of black
mail which relations and friends of the afflicted
family gladly paid to escape his nearer acquain
tance, and which contributions he was under
stood to employ in the worship of an idol known
and reverenced by all schoolboys, in all places,
under the various names of "sock," "tuck,"
"grub," and " guttle." Society dealt with
iihn, in short, as a weak butwell meaning parish
clergyman deals, in his parochial visitations,
with some of his flock when he finds both mo
rally and physically unsavory; rather rever
sing apostolic precedent, he has recourse to
gold and silver as the easiest, and, as appears
to him, the only intelligible expression of good
will; any higher circulating medium seems
impossible under the circumstances. Those,
indeed, who had never possessed a schoolboy
of their own, regarded the whole species with
unmitigated horror, and nothing less than a
severe course of Aristotle could have persuaded
such persons of the truth of. the physiological
paradox, that parents could love their own pro
ductions when they took that shape. So that
even the best friends were content to keep him
a good deal out of sight; putting him by, as
an entomologist does some hideous chrysalis,
in the hope that he is to come out better by
FIRE Wnirmo.—ln a little book for popular
reading, washing the skin is called "the exer
cise of cutaneous ablution." Ina tract written
for village poor, a man with a drunken look is
said to have "an ebriated aspect." In a dic
tionary of common things, professed to be writ
ten in the plainest way for the common people,
the writer, in his article on gardening, in April,
says : "This month is favorable to the devel
opment of that species of creation which is
noxious to vegetation." Unfortunately, very
many of those to whom our children's education
is intrusted are themselves educated in schools
where the pupils are taught to be genteel, and
where the chief mark of gentility is counted to
be the using of fine language. Very sensible
was that dame who, doubtful, I suppose, of her
patrons understanding the fine inscription,
"Seminary for young ladies," added under it
the translation, "A girl's school."
In Punch there is a parody, very little exag
gerated, on this style of composition, called
"Desultory Reflections :
. "One individual may pilfer a quadruped
where another may not east his eyes over the
boundary of a field.
"In the absence of the feline race the mice
give themselves up to various pastimes.
"Feathered bipeds of an advanced age are
not to be entrapped with the outer hullo of
"More confectioners than are absolutely
necessary are apt to ruin the potage."
Complete Letter Writers are mines of fine
English. In one the editor, who recommends
his book to those who "prefer an English dic
tion to the vulparity which care might avoid,"
thus advises us to write to invite a friend to
stay with us in the country :
"Will you do us the favor of making our ru
ral retreat your temporary abode ?"
And when a mother sends a present to her
boy at school, he is advised to answer her
"Knowing as I do that your whole life is oc
cupied in promoting my improvement and hap
piness, I can only feel that each fresh token of
your affection lays an additional claim upon
We may consider it a general rale that the
best English is that in which Saxon derived
words are used most freely ; that it is better for
common purposes, at least, to say "like" than
"similar," "help" than "assist," "give" than
"present," "beg" than "solicit," "kinsman"
than "relation," "neighborhood" than "vicin
ity," "praise" than "encomium."
That is good advice of the author of "Guesses
at Truth :" "When you doubt between two
words, choose the plainest, the commonest, the
merit idioinatic. Eschew fine words as you
would rouge ; love simple ones as you would
native roses on your cheeks. Let us use the
plainest and shortest words that will gram
matically and gracefully express our meaning.
Your. Cuozcu Fon Oz DOLLAR—The New
Metallic Alloy.—"Oriode" is a new metallic al
ley, extensively used in this country as a sub-:
stitute for gold. Stores have sprung into ex
istence all over the country for the sale of it,
and newspapers contain flaming advertisements
of a "full set of jewelry for only one dollar,
being the stock of a large manufacturer, (or
merchant,) who is obliged to dispose of his
stock on account of the panic." It is a French
discovery, and is called by the French gold
oriede. It is manufactured to a large extent
in Waterbury, Connecticut. It bears a very
elose resemblance to gold in color, density and
fineness of grain; so close that it deceives every
one but practical dealers or experts. Its compo
nent parts consist of pure copper, 100 parts; zinc
or (preferably) tin, 17 parts; magnesia, 6 parts;
sal ammoniac, 3.6 parts; quicklime, 1.8 parts;
tartar of commerce, 9 parts; are mixed as fol
lows: The copper is first melted, when the
magnesia, sal ammoniac, lime and tartar in
powder, are added little by little; the crucible
is now briskly stirred for half an hour, so as to
mix thproughly; and then the zinc is added in
small grains by throwing it on the surface and
stirring it till it is entirely fused; the crucible
is then covered and the fusion maintained for
about thirty-five minutes: The surface is then
skimmed and the -alloy is ready for casting.—.
The fineness of grain in this alloy gives to those
objects of art composed of it a delicacy and a
gurity of detail that cannot be obtained from
bronze. The alloy is essentially ductile and
: malleable, and - can be - cast, rolled, drawn,
/tamped, chased, beaten into powder, or lesiva,
