From Dreams and Reveries of a Quiet Man
We all understand that eating and
drinking are very ancient and general
practices.—Cookery has become a trade.
Like the rest of the simple pleasures
which nature has bestowed on man,
civilization has elevated it to new im
portance. It has been cultivated with
great assiduity by all enlightened na
tions. It has been moulded into extra
ordinary shapes, and hunted down into
subtle refinements. Earth, air and sea
are ransacked for discoveries by which
new combinations may be affected.—
The sciences descend from their wildest
flight to minister to its wants and vary
its perfection, and it branches out into
such innumerable ramifications, as, in
many instances, to seem the soul, and
often the fatal, object of man's existence.
The Suppers of Heliogabalus, the
Roman emperor, were said to have cost
thirty thousand dollars every night, and
Mark Antony expended three hundred
thousand dollars in an entertainment
given to Cleopatra. Esop, the ramous
Roman tragedian, had upon his table a
single dish valued at four thousand dol
lars, filled, we are told, with speaking
and singing !Aids, some of which cost
two hundred and fifty dollars. His son
dissolved pearls for his guests to drink
—a piece of silly extravagance not un
common among the ancients; and the
King of Wurteinburg, who preceded
the present monarch, is reported to have
glutted his brutal appetite with a hash
composed of the tongues of nightingales.
It is asserted by physicians, that a
great share of the diseases which have
come into the world with its improve
ments, and which aro unknown to na
tions in a barbarous state, result from
immoderate eating 'and drinking; and
it is probable that most of us have suffi
ciently experienced its evil consequen
ces to acknowledge how it stupefies the
spirits, and clogs the operations of the
mind. Well said poor Cesar,
" Let me have men wound me that are fat,—
Sleek-headed men, and such as sleep o'nights.
Yon Cassius has a loan and hungry look.
He thinks too much—such men are dangerous."
I remember 014 C of my school-mates
who was distinguished only for =eating
and drinking. Whether it was that a
vulgar nature led him to seek gratifica
tion only in sensual enjoyments, or
whether the excesses in which he in
dulged degraded a character, not natu
rally bad, to the level it then occupied,
might have been a question with some;
yet it always seemed to mo that he had
not been created with"many excellent
qualities both of head and heart; but
that the habits of gluttony into which
he had fallen, led him away from all
lofty feelings and noble pursuits. He
was the veriest young epicure I ever
knew. To eat and drink seemed his
only joy—to carve, his only ambition,.
He adopted system about nothing ex
cept his , victuals. He was enraged if he
could not get his favorite slice of beef
or part of chicken, and he measured out
the pepper, halt, mustard, and vinegar,
with the precision of an apothecary
weighing drugs. When_the meal was
concluded, grace pronounced, and his
companions wore in their ranks and
marching out to their sports, I have
often laughed to behold Peter sneaking
back toward the dining-room, stealing
affectionate glances at the relics which
strewed the table like the confused
wrecks of a hard-fought field of battle,
and peeping into the hollow bone of the
abandoned beef, to disengage the lus
cious marrow with the handle of a tea
spoon. The same taste pervaded' all
his hours. He was never satisfied with
the ordinary meals ; but at frequent
intervals would draw forth from some
s:e cr et and seemingly inexhaustible
source, his tit-bits ; and you might catch
him often with his back turned, swallow
ing, in solitary delight, the last of some
nameless and particular piece of con
fectionary, which had probably haunted
his imagination for the previous hour,
until the temptation to dispatch it ad
mitted of no - longer delay. His desk
and his p4ckets were generally full Of ,
crumbs, and the leaves of half his books
were stained with tarts, or glued -to
gether with little pieces of molasses
candy. To feel an interest in his edu
cation was out of the question. He
loathed his lesson as tClabour, and hated
his teacher as a tyrant.. Pear of dis
grace would not drivp, nor the hope of
approbation influence him.
We were all one day much amused by
a scene between him and his instructor.
It seems poor Peter had committed one
Of those heinous offences which swell
the criminal records of such literary
:k,.... 4/ -
institutions, and it was necessary to ad
dress him before his class.
The venerable man upon whom this
duty devolved was of a mild and insinu
atingdisposition, and from the variety
and extent of his information, and tilt
unfeigned kindness of his Planners, ad
mirably calculated to acquire influence
over his pupils. He posessed a kind of
simple and natural eloquence; by which
he could generally touch the heart as
well as enlighten the understanding, and
when he flung his hand across the strings
of their feelings, the whole system thrill
ed. Bat friend Peter's strings were not
fashioned of an over-delicate material,
and as . for the thrilling—Heaven save
the mark I .—you might as well have
speechified to a rock. Peter's cause
came on at the proper time. He was
brought out in form, after the invariable
fashion of ; seminaries of learning, and
stood in the middle of the floor, in aw
ful and conspicuous solitude. Around
was a circle of some eighty or ninety
faces, of all kinds, shapes and &allusions,
full of inquiry and expectation—soma
slightly faded into unwonted paleness,
from the mischievous representations of
their own conscience, some distended
with pity, and others wrinkled with
The master took his seat. The vari
ous noises of the eager died entirely
away. There stood Peter, with his toes
in, his hands--by no means "whiter than
monumental alabaster"—twirling the
corner of his pocket-flap into divers
shapes—his head down, anal his uuder
lip out. The Judge preceeded to the
necessary preliminaries, and explained,
in a clear style, tLu nature of his Crime.
This had little effect. He next appeal
ed to his reason in a forcible Manner,
and demonstrated, from the intimate
connection which'existed between wick
edness and misery, that Peter. was• in a
very bad way. Still the offender re
mained ,quiet, and appeared thinking
about something else. The kind moni
tor then instituted a comparison be
tween him and his more innocent and
happy school-fellows. No change yet
in the subject. His feelings were next
attacked. He had a father, mother and
sister. The disgrace of the transaction
was not confined to himself ; it extended
to them ; and, although he did not seem
to suffer from remorse, what must bo
their sorrow ? Peter stood all the
while as if he, had been hewn out of
granite; not a feature of his face relax
ed from the stupefied firmness into
which his dull and contented counte
nance had settled. But when, at length,
he heard pronounced against him the
awful sentence of bread and water for
one or 'two days, his camposure fled.
The nerve was touched. His e.,yeS filled
with tears. His wide mouth was screwed
up intotwriukles of anguish, and as the
fragrant dishes, upon which his 'affec
tions were now vainly placed, rose up
.in fancy before him, he seemed suffering
under a pain as violent; if not as tender
as that of the lover who bids farewell to
the object of all his thoughts.
I should probably have forgotten this
little incident, had I not accidentally
met friend Peter the .other day in the
street, and found, that although time has
matured him from the boy into manhood,
he yet preServes the same character, and
has become exactly the kind of man
which I had anticipated. I followed
him before he renogniz,ed me, for some
distance, and observed the old peculiar
ities of his dress and manner. He still
• walks with his toes in and his head
down. His face retains all its ancient
stupidity, triumphant over the efforts of
experience, and his hands, as they hting
dangling down by bis pocket-fiaps, look
ed as if they had scarcely been thorough.
ly washed since the , bread-and-water
tragedy in which he was the principal
actor. Some• alterations, however, were
obvious. The soft complexion and boy
ish form of
,youth had disappeared, and
in their place, he had a shape resembling
Falstaff's, and 'a nose not unlike that of
Bardolph. He knew me after a me
JaienVs vacant stare, and invited me,
iefbre we had walked the distance of
fiva blooks, to slip into a confectioner's
and take a lunch. I was too polite to
refuse, or else too curious to discover
how much of his old appetite yet re
mainedl so in we went. He drevi large

whose ,oily sweets seemed rather to
exciip than quench his thirst; and the

munching a delicate tart with the energy
of a steam mill, and wiping off from his
mouth the crumbs and apple with the
sleeve of his coat. " Nonsense. I have

(lectors have almost given me up. The

The poor woman did as, he required,
