mortified enough by the ..lava of her acquain

her the action had been commenced in her

snick," How stupid they are." Emboldened by
this, he begged to know whether or not a life
of distant unpretending devotion would, after

THINGS IN LONDON.
The . following is • an intereiding account of
the Omnibuses, the Smithfield Market, and
some other matters in and near the metropolis
of Great Britain:
"Bank! bank I" is the cry that salutes the 'I
foot passengers at the corner of nearly every
street. This emanates from the omnibus dri-
I Nora and conductors. In the morning these
vehicles go nt a break neck pace down to the
city, carrying the business men to their offices,-
The two groat thoroughfares through which
these vehicles pass are Oxford street nod the
Strand.. They commenced running at eight
o'clock in the morning, and continued until
midnight. Most of them have two charges,
fourpenee and sixpence. For a stranger it is
a difficult matter to find the omnibus that'will
take him to any particular spot.ho -wishes to
go, they are so covered with-names cf places
and advertiarnents ; the windows are .always
up, or closed, and used to paste cards of vari
ous firms on. There is room for twelve per
sons inside and ten outside ; four of these set
with the driveiL this is considered the most
desirable part of the " base ;" and it is so with
truth, as yon,,are above everything, and have
a fine view of the bustle, excitement and con
fusion that is going en around. - •
Iris quite interesting to get next to 'coachy,
and draw him into conversation. - The drivers
of the London " buses" are probably the best
'whips' in the world; they acquire great dex
terity, and drive by their box seats, which,pro
ject over the side far enough toolbar the wheel.
The conductors stand on a high stop on the
back of tho omnibus to the left of the door;
from their position they are enabled to see all
that is going on in front and behind; they area
continually on the alertlcir passengers, and
lose no time in getting them out or in. When
a person gets in they throw the door too;
this is heard by the driver, who starts on.—
The result Of this id, that the new-comer, if
he is.not an adept at this business, ,finds,him
self landed backwards into somebody's lap ;
but this makes no difference—the driver does
not core, and the conductor not•lose any
time for fear the opposition-line-will get ahead
of him. The horses are changed every-trip,
so they are enabled to driye them as fast as
The omnibuses now running number about
3000, at a cost of £lOO per omnibus, making
£300,000; each hoe ten heroes, the value of
these is £OOO,OOO. It has been calculated that
the number of persons Who 'annually ride in
these conveyances amounts to three hundred
millions, an amount equal to one-third the
population of the world. Eleven thousand
men are employed, and working a capital of
£1,700,000, and paying to the revenue a duty
of £lOO,OOO. The drivers and conductors

dinner. When they proposed for higher wages,
they wore compelled to hold their meetings
after 12 o'clock at eight. . •
How often do you read of " Lloyd's ?" and
how many persons ask what it means.? It is a
familiar abbreviation of the important society
of under-writers meeting at Lloyd's Subscrip
tion Coffee House. They occupy two suites of
rooms- in the Royal Exchange—one is open to
the public, and the other reserved for subscri
hers.,., The Society - has agents in all theyrin
cipal ports of the world ; and through their
means the commercial and shipping intelli
gence is published daily. On entering the
public room, the first thing that strikes your
eye is a large book in which is 'written tho
news of the arrival or, departure of any vessel
at the port of London .or Liverpool ; also, the
accounts of any' shipwrecks that may have oc
curred. Fresh items are put in the book im
mediately upon their reception by telegraph.
Arouud the room aro many small tables, on
which may be found papers from all quarters
of the globe. J
Lost Monday morning I visited Smithfield
Market. This is the great cattle market of the
Inetropolis. In a-space of-not more• than five
acres, 20,000 beasts are sold monthly. It is
necessary to rise about four o'clock in the •
morning to see it properly. The cattle market
is held on Monday ,and Friday, and for hay and
straw during the remaining days of the week.
All sales.take place by commission. and the
money transactions are estimated at £700,000
annually. Tho oily receives a toll upon every
beast exposed to sale of two cents per head,
and of sheep, at four ,cents per seep. The
total produce to the corporation is from $25,- .
000 to $30,000 a year.
Smithfield salesmen estimate the weight of
cattle by the eye, and from constant practice
approach sonear to exactnqps, that they are
aeldom-ino&then a few pounds at faUlt. The I
are always for cash. No paper is passed,
but wh r eit the bargain is struck, the buyer and '
seller elnike hands and close the sale. The
market commences at 11 o'clock on .Sunday
night. It is almost in the centre of the oily.
Many attempts have been made to have it re
moved; but such is the obetinate.•adherenee ,
to all nneient customs, they have as yet proved
unsuceassful, 'as' salesmen continue to drive
their cattle to the favdrite looality..,,Bear in
mind you- must leave your bed at' an early
hour, as the effect is vary curious to see the
butchers and 'talesman with torches, driving
the anitnahrnbont, and peeking them into pens.
R. is all over by nine o'olook in the morning.
Among the places of interest to bti mention
ed In this city are . the , " Tower," and " St.
Paul's Cathedral." But what onn be written
about them that is not known ? Very little,
if anything. Let us take one or two, tripe out
of London to pikes near, "-
A friend and myself drove out to Blelanond,
distance-nine - and a half miles from Londou.
We stopped at the Star and' Garter; and took
lunch. When Louis Philippe was in England,
lie lived at this hotel,*and "paid the landlord
$95,000 a month for lodging'' and serving the

undesemmdly so. k ride in the Pork—which
ox`tonds thirteen miles around, and in which
are, 3.000 deer—is very pleasant.
A little further on is shown the house 6
which Popo resided—and three and a half
miles distant is Hampton Court Palace. It
occupies eight acres of ground, and the walk's
in the garden, .wilderness' and palace, - are
about three miles in extent, The palace wits
built by Cardinal Woolsey, the favorite of
-Henry VIII. It was commenced about 1616.
When finished, it was so' magnificent in style
that it began to excite envy at court. The
King, therefore, took occasion to question the
'Cardinal as to his intentions in building a pil
ace that-far surpassed any of the royal palaces
in England. On this Woolsey replied, that"
ha was only trying to form a residence worthy.
of so great a monarch," and that it was in
tended for his king. Woolsey was, however,
disgraced in 1520. This affected his mind so
much, that he put an end to his life. in his
last agony, he regretted that he had not served
his God with the sums fidelity be had always
used towards his royal master, and died on
the 29th of November, 1530. He was - the
greatest instance many ages had produced of
the vanity and inconstancy of human things
both in his rise and fall. By his temper in
both it appears that ho was unworthy of his
greatness, and deserved what-he suffered.
However, a great writer declares that few
ever fell from so high a station with fewer
crimes charged against them. •
In the palace are many fine pictures. The
greatest curiosity to ho seen here is a large

if not in tho world; it is over one hundred
