A. KINEILOE E. H. linteLoz "Early to bed and early to rise, Make a man healthy, wealthy, and wise, he appoints each individual's task for' the day, sets him at it with encouraging words, and goes back to bed again. I mention here, in no fault-finding spirit, but with the deference justly due a . man who is older and wiser and worthier than I, that be snores awfully. In a moment of irri tation, once, I was rash enough to - s say never would sleep with him until himself oi,this unfo . rt un ate habits I have kept my, ord with bigoted and unwaver ing determination. At half-past 11 o'clock Mr. Greeley rises again. •He shaves himself. He considers that there is great virtue and , econotny,,in shaving himself." He does it . razor, sometimes bumming - 4,-part •of a tune, (he know's part orit - ttia, and takes an innocent delight in regarding it as the • first half of Old Hundred ; • but PaVfieii familiar with that hymn: belie' felt obliged to confess that they .could. not.recognir.e . • it, and therefore the noise be . makes' is doubtless an unconscious original compo sition of Mr.- Greeley's) - and"sometimes,` when the razor is especially dull, he ac companies himself with an emphatic for-, mule. • He then goes out into his model garden, and applies his vast store of agricultural knowledge to the amelioration of his cab bages ; after which* write able agrit cultural article for the instruction of Amer;: lean farmers, his soul cheered the while with the reflection that if cabbages were eleven dollars apiece his model farm - would pay. • He next goes to breakfast, which is a frugal, abstemious meal with him and con sists of nothing but just such things, as the market affords, nothing more. He drinks nothing but water—nothing what ever but water, and coffee; and tea, and Scotch Ale, and lager beer, and lemonade with a fly in it—sometimes a lionse fly, and sometimes a horse fly, according to the amount ofiuspiration required to warm him up to his duties. Nixing breakfast he reads the Tribune all through, and•en joys the satisfaction of knowing that all the brilliant things in it, written by Young, and Cooke, and Hazard, and myself are, attributed to him by a confiding, and in-: fcrnal public. After breakfast he *rites a short edito rial, and puts a large dash at the beginning of it, thus (—), which is the same as if lie put 11. G. after it, and takes a savage pleasure in reflecting that none of us un- derstrappers can . use that dash, except in profane conversation when chafing over the outrage. He writes this editorial in his own handwriting. He does it because he is so vain of his penmanship. He al ways did take an inordinate pride in his penmanship. He hired out once; in fib' young days, as a writing master, but the enterprise failed. The pupils could not translate his remarks with any certainty. His first copy was "Virtue is its own re ward," and they got it "Washing with soap is wholly absurd," and so the trustees discharged him. - lor attempting - to Convey bad morals, through the medium of worse penmanship. But, as I was saying, he writes his morning editorial. Then he tries to read it over, and can't do it, and so sends it to the printers, and they try to read it, and can't do it ; and so they set, it up at random as you may say, putting in what words they can make out, and when they get aground on a long word they put iii "reednkrtiction" or Unniversal suffrage," and spar ofT and paddle ahead, and next porning, if the degraded public can tell what it is all about, they say 11. G. wrote it, and y they can't, they say: it is one those imbecile understrappers i and that is the end of it. On Sundays Mr. Greeley sits lda prom ent pew in Mr. Chapin's church, and lets on that ho is• asleep, and the congre gation regard it as an eccentricity of genius Men he is going to appear in public, Mr. Greeley spends two hours on his oilet. He is the most pains-taking and elaborate main about getting up Lis dress that lives in America. This is his chiefest and his pleasantest foible". He puth onhis old white overcoat, and turns up the collar. He puts on a soiled shirt, saved from the wash, and leaves one end of the collar unbuttoned. Ile puts on his most dilapi dated hat, turns it wrong side before, cants it on to the back of his head, and jams an extra dent in the side of it. Ile puts on his most atrocious boots, and spends fif teen minutes tucking the left leg of his pants into his boot top in what shall seem the most careless and unstudied' manner. But his cravat—it is into the arrangement of his cravat that he throws all his soul. all the powers of his great mind. After fixing at it for forty minutes before the glass is is perfect—it is askey every way— it overflows his coat collar on one side and sinks into oblivion on the other—it climbs and it delves around. his neck—the knot is conspicuously displayed under his left ear, and it stretches one of its long ends straight out horliontally, and the other goes after his eye, in the good old Toodles fashion— and then, completely and marvelohsly. ap- pareled, Mr. Greeley stridei for the rolling like a sailor, a miracle of astounding cos turnery, the awe and wonder of the •na- MI But I havn't time to tell the rest of his private habits. - Suffice it 'that' he is an honest and- upright "Practical, great-brained man—a useful man to his nation and his generatiohL-4 - faMous man who has justly earned his celebrity—and withal the worst-dressed man in this or any country even though he does take so thundering much pains and puts on so many frils about it.—Wilkes Spirit of the Times.

While Dr. England,BishOp of Charles . ton; was on a Nish, to his native city,Cork, : he became acquainted With an: exceeding ly intelligent negro, an Irishman by birth. After a few interviews with the young man, be conceived the • idea of educating him for the priesthood, believing that he Would be .ervieable hi that capaqiey. among the negroes in South Carolina, many of whom Were Catholics. 'Conse quently he sent him to France to prepare for holy orders. After spending several years in the seminaries, having completed Ins "studies, the young'= man came to 'Charlestown,and the Bishop ordained him, gave him faculties, and sent him on the mission among his brethrdn, but, strange to say, they received hini very coldly, and gaire him to understand that they did not want-him, that Itliey 'preferred white shep herdi. This greatly disc:out:aged him, but he libored earnestly fora •time,, till finding, he could do no 'good, be resolved to leave; them and go to Europe; where he could be better received. Accordingly lid started for New :York to take passage for France. Arriving early on a Sunday morning he concluded to say wiss as usual. St. Peter's being the nearest church, he directed his steps, thither, F--h; who was Mid pas tor, was a native of Cork, like our friend. Having come to the pastoral residence, our friend ascended the ,steps, rang .the bell and inquired for the 'phltor. The ierVani, informed him that the doc tor was at 'breakfast, and, pointing to the basement, "'if you wish to see the doctor go down there." . Having dosed the hall door, the servant ran down hithe'Doetor,.and told' I'lin that "a very eoniitey looking nagur man" was. coming down to see him on important bu sineis. • ). a Tell him' to come in here ? " said . the doetoi:, When our friend entered the room, the doctor, 'irithCait raising from the "table, bowed, politely to the man and said, with a 'rich . , Cork accent, " Good morning, EIMII . -."Good morning," kindly replied- bur friend, 'with vjuat as rich a brogue. • • The doctor, surprised at the accent,look l 6 - 41 carefully at the man, and said to him very inquiringly, "What countryman • are you, sir?"
