Ko.10.  GENTLEMEN  AND SNOBS;  The most obvious snob isi we should say,  & London shopman eaaking holiday in bis  Sunday cloths, and displaying his cheap jewellery and his charms> before envious brother  shopmen and adrairing& ladies of the establishment" Of course there are plenty of  kendon shopmen who / are.; not -snobs;;.-.-.but  still this is the idea that people have of, the  snob pure ttnd undefined. What is it, then,  that'constitutes the essence of the .snobbishness of the creature iu this "full-blown and  acknowledged^bape ? If we can get at the  secret we *hall Tiave the test ready to apply  ; to all other sorts of men, from'kings'down to  eostermohgers. Nor is thesecret/dMcuU/^  detects Hie/snobbishness; rjonsjste/ slniipi^ in  his attempt iqjpass^  not, and what he knows thaft heyte/notky^o'  doubt this attempt'is acobnapatifed with -that  :���������: 4bregand:foT the������equal nights and feelings of  those whom he would outshine; but this dis^  :--regard of other people's pains is not peculiar.  yXto-the sn������I>raa-d4herefere it'.is no pari of that  which makes hira what, he is.    We take it,  /therefore, that the essence of snobbishness  and vulgarity is nothing more or less than,  ���������display/designed to create, in .other persons'  minds a belief that yon "are different from  :   what you really are ; better-bora, better bred  ; richer, more clever, or more accomplished.  ���������''������������������;������������������ This view, indeed nay perhaps be thought inadequate as a;definition of vulgarity, or snobbishness, io all its endless exuberance of var-j  iety;: and yet the more closely it is applied,  -the more complete will appear the explanar  tiou which it supplies. .   *  v Contrast again --a.gentleman and a snob, and  this view becomes still more undeniable.  There is a popular theory that fgeniletnanU-  ������ess coasists in polish and urbanity. But yet  -we &\1 admit that a man iaay, from circura-  stauces, be rough and uncouth, and yet be  /:. thoroughly a gentlemany And, on the other  /band, he may be courteous and urbane and  observaatofall the delicate 'nuances'.-of^civilized aad cultivated life, and yet retain just  "' sufficient of that self-display which makes us  shrink up vriift that uacomfortable sensation  . vwhichvulgarity, and. no thing else, creates.in  yiis.   It is rather that perfect truthfulness and  ':'/TOodesty which results from an absence of de-  ; iire to impose upon his companions which  rniikes a naast a gentleman;'{������������������������������������ a definition that  every shade and degree of satisfaction, from  ease up to rapture, is expressed in a. compound of t&e two$ and the schooIboy���������along  with tbe considerable class that adopts his  style���������whose measure of content is filled up,  is awfully jolly. Here is^he climax to which  nothkg further can; be added. All good talk  is an art, and owes much to practice; When  one of <the3e airy talkers aears thirty, who has  hitherto made two or three adverbs and a*k  jectives serve his or her turn, we can scarcely picture to ourselves a more helpless case.  He has taste-enough to .feel that ..such high-  pressure terms are no longer;for bim} they  strike upon his own,, as, well as the listener's  ear. as paihMly at variance with the subdued  .ieyef of his spirits. He is satisfied io be comfortable without any sense of irrepressible unintelligent delight in the mere sense of life.  ;Y0t what is he to dp ? He is not willing to  givelip emphasis, but which is tbe spice of  conversation, but where is .he to find it? 'We  are satisfied that many fluent talkers among  our youth will be stranded ten years hence,  and will have to return.irito^oeial~obS{M?,rity,-  their style pointless, the right word never pre-'  seating itself, simply because a few ohtrusive  but inadmissible expressions will always keep  to. the front ot memory, and; put every fitting,  select epithet out of each, till the moment  which called for. it is past.  Pat and Dkacon.���������A few months  we recognise: again and  again  when we say;  as-we often do,-that such a^iysuch/ a person  may be ignorant of the ways 6f society or a;  ������nere uncultivated artisan, and yet there is hot  a trace of vulgarity about him; ,-/     ;  : In making up their mitt^/;Mi^tp';^^..'C|Menr  tial elements��������� of: snobbishness, people/ar^  sometimes misled by confounding style with  good breeding, and both with gehtlemanli-  ������ess; whereas all three are perfectly distinct;  <Jenfelemanliness is a moral, and partly also  an intellectual quality. Good breeding is the  ��������� Yesiilt of a clear perception and habitual practice of the ways and customs; which prevail  among those who are personaUy ladies and;  gentlemen, more or less cultivated. Style is  ���������something more, y It is the consequence of  that extended intercourse with the best class  of men and women which is within, the reach  only ofpersonSof good rank and large/for^  tune. It is what is often expressed by the  term "aristocrat." Many a man and many a  -woraaa is destitttteof style, -though possessing all these advantages; and it is of course  to be found among many who are destitute ot  them. But it is certain, that a large. intercourse with all the varieties of polished; society produces that perfect self-possession and  disregard of the censure of the multitude:  ���������which in its offensive form becomes hauteur,  and in its amiable form constitutes style. A  man may be in every possible respect not  only a gentleman, but a very well bred man;  but it is not easy to dis embarras himself at  all times of every trace of shyness and uncomfortable sensitiveness, except through an  early and habitual mixing with a world or  people of his own type ; and while this shyness and unsubdued sensitiveness remain he  -cannot attain that perfect ease, and even dignity, without which the charm of style is felt  to be wanting.���������'Pail Mall Gazette.'  Modern Epithets.���������Never were niceties of  ���������opinion compressed into so: small a compass  as by the youth of the present day.x We^oh-  serve���������and also find the practice adopted in  all books which desire to reproduce society  as it is���������a general disposition to reduce all  ���������definition to the nse of two or three terms.  All that effects the boy agraeably is jolly; all  that annoys the girl is horrid; all that they  find, or pretend to find, irksome, troublesome  or oppressive, is awful; though even this  rule of adaptation may be reversed;  while  ago, as  Deacon Ingalls, of Swampscot, R. I., was travelling through the Western part of the State  of New York,;he fell.in with an Irishman/who  had lately arrived in this country/and was in  search of a brother who had com'4 before hini,  and settled in some of the, diggings in that  part of the country./ *:  Pat was a strong man, a true Roman Catholic, and had never seen tlie interior of a Protestant church,    /./y/y .    //>,/.  It was a pleasant Sunday morning that Brother Ingalls met Pat, who inquired the road  to the nearest church.  Ingalls was a pious man. He told Pat he  was going to church, and invited his ncw^  made friend to keep him company thither, his  destination being a small Methodist "meetinghouse near, by." - There was a great revival  there at that time, and. one of the deacons,  who was a very small man in statue, invited  Brother Ingalls to take a seat in his pew. He  accepted the invitation, followed by Pat, who  looked in vain to fiud the altar, etc. After he  was seated, he turned round to Brother Ingalls, and in a whisper thatcouldbe heard all  round, inquired,���������  "Stire, and isn't this a heretic church?"  ^ Hush I" 6aid Ingalls; " if you soeak a  word they will put you out.".  f''l'?-\fevii a word will. I speak at all," said Pat  The meeting was opened by prayer by the  pastor. Pat was eying him very closely, when  an old gentieman, who was standing in the  pew directly iu front of Pat, shouted 'Glory V  "Hist, ye devil," rejoined he, with his loud  whisper, which was heard by the minister;  <k be dacent, and don't make a blockhead of  yourself."  : Tlie pastor grew more fervent in his devotions. ,-; Presently the deacon uttered an audible groan. '  /." Hist, ye blackguard I have ye no dacency  at alt!" said Pat, at the same time giving  him a punch in the ribs, which caused him to  lose his equilibrium.  The minister "stopped,' and extending his  hand in a suppliant manner, said,���������  "Bretberen, we cannot be disturbed in this  way.   Will some one putthatman out?"  ** Yes, your riverience," shouted Pat, " I  will!" and suiting the action to the word, he  collared the deacon, and to the utter horror  of the pastor, Brother Ingalls and the whole  congregation he dragged him up the aisle, and  with a tremendious kick sent him into the  vestibule of the church.  ^SMfr. H. C. Wiimotfc, our enterprising  Expressman, has now two sleighs on the road  between Richfield and Cameronton, one for  drawing wood &c., the othor for the accom0-  dation of passengers and Express matter. He  will also make regular trips to Grouse creek  during the rest of the winter^. Mr. Wilmott's  obliging manner commendshim to the patronage of the public. .   *,  ^0* A Virginia lawyer once objected to an  expression of the Act of Assembly of Pennsylvania, that the State'Hoiise yard should be  " surrounded by a brick wall and remain an  open enclosure for ever." " But," said Judge  Breekenridge, who was present, " I put him  down by that Act of the Legislature of Virginia, which is entitled, '* A supplement to aa  Act to amend an Act making it.penal to alter  the mark of an unmarked hog,"  Mr.- Pkabooy'h Wealth.���������An'exchange says  Mr. George Peabody's fortune' is variously  estimated, and conjecture is busy, trying to  discover what he is worth.;' In 1851 .he was  num]>ered among the millionaires of London,  and faring the toll owing ten years his business greatly increased; / In 1^60. he wa3 said  to be'worth $15,000,000 in gold, and he has  endowed various cbaritiesin the princely sum  of $5,000,000; Mr. Peabody is now probably  worth$10,000,000 or $15,000,000, firf; thC; iti:  crease of his' property during the past six  years'hias been considerable, i Fortune/has  not smiled on him in vain, for seldom has1 so  bountiful a giver been numbered among men.  : A New Ststem oi*- Tele ok aphikg.t- A: system of telegraphing is now ;in operation i in  France by which exact copies of the original  message are produced at tho termination of  .tbe lines, solely by mechanical., means..

'     "... . -. ..l  ���������;���������������,-  JS^ The effect of the financial crisis, and  the consequent dis trust in England of public  companies is evidenced by. the fact that during th^ year 1866 the number of new companies brought out was only 44-, against 2^7 in  2865, and the capital required was only ������10,  295,000, against ������166,000,000. / ���������VyX  WILLIAMS CREEK  (LIMITED.)  CAPITAL,  - $10,000,  In 200 shares at $50 each, thifJ^dAllars of which-to  be pal <k in taking of shares - ah'rf^fte^r^felrider. to,, be  paid subject to the call ofthe company;-or at the rate  of five dollars per month: until all is paid.-.- /   The object for which the above company has been  formed is for the erection of a TEST QUARTZ. MILL  on Williams Creek-B. G., above Richfield, the position  having been carefully selected on account of its abun*-:  dant water privileges as well as its central position and  its being near to the main wagon road making it easy  for tlie conveyance of Quartz to said Mill.  Tho promoters in placing this Prospectus before the  public,- express'their full couudcncc in the-success of  tbe undertaking, to those that invest as well as the  country at large, for the country has been greatly retarded by tho want of a QUARTZ MILL to prove the  Quartz of the' country. The extent of the country and  the richness ofits placer diggings, and tho croppings  which every day.'coiie to light, justify the company tn  saying that by the erection of the above Mill, with all  its advantages as regards location and water, that it  will be remuneration to the shareholder as well as a  great benefit to the country. The following Is thepro-  posed capacity of the Mill: To be six Stamps, with requisite Machinery, capable of crushing 10 tons of  Quartz evcay twenty-four hours.  In consequence oi the great facilities enjoyed by the  Company, and the advantages to bo derived, not only  of being the first Quartz Mill that will be erected, but  giving the prospector-thcadvantage of knowing.what  his Quartz are worth, without sending U to San Kran  Cisco to be tested as now, taking months to find out  what can bo ascertained in 24 hours. And; tho Dircc  tors would further state that an investment in the  above Mill will be, in their opinion remunerative, after  crushing and assaying for miners on liberal terms and  allowing for working, wear &c. of mill, they expect a  large margin.    :. .  v  Ovving to,tbe distance.the machinery is to be brought  and the consequent delay attending such things, it 13  desirable that the shares be all taken as soou as possible, fifty of which are already taken, In order to get the  Mill in running order by the middle ot'.Inne next.  The above Mill being highly recommended by the  Mining Board and also by tho late and present Gold  Commissioners, the Oompany have no hesitation in  saying tha t they will get a substantial bonus from Government, which will go to the Company as a .sinking  fund*   And also from the long experience of Mr, Wii-  the bitest improvements, and under whose superinten-  dcnciUhe machinery will be selected, we have no  hesitation in assuring tho public that the best rnachin^  ery will he sel^ctniHor the Company.   ;  An Omco of the Company will be opened in tbo town  of Birkerville, for the purpose of giving all the.information required, where a sett of books will be opened  for the company and those that wish to take stock.   5  NEW  TIN SHOP.  /  THE UNDERSIGNED have commenced in the above  business fr-xt door to MundoriTs stables, Barker-  villu, and soiicit a share of public patronage.

It was, at that time, but a little  / settlement of some twenty or thirty log and  frame eabins, and where now stands the Broadway. Hotel, and blocks of stores and dwelling  nouses, was the cottage and corn patch of old  ; Mr. '/the tailor, who, by the by, bought  that land for the making of a coat for one of  the settlers. Well, I put up my cabin, with  theaid of my neighbors, and put in a patch of  corn and potatoes, about where the Fly market uow stands, and set about improving my  lot. house, etc. '/  "Occasionally I took my^rifle, and started  off with my dog down the river, to look up a  little deer, or bar meat, then very plenty  along the river.    The blasted redskins were  lurking about, and hovering around the set-  - tlement, and every once in a while picked oif  spme of our neighbors, ot stole our cattle or  horses.   I hated the red demons, and made  U/6 bones of peppering- the blasted  sarpentsj  Whenever I got a sight at them.    In fact, the  red rascals had a dread of me, and had laid a  good many traps to get my scalp, but I wasn?t  to be eateh'd napping.   No, no, gentlemen, I  was too well up to 'em for that.  ..  '��������� Welt, I started off one morning, pretty  early, to take a hunt,and travelled a long way  down the river/over the bottoms and hills,  bat couldn't find uo bar nor deer.   About  four o'clock in the afternoon, I made tracks  for the settlement again.   By aud by, I sees a  buck just ahead  of mo. walking leisurely  down the river.   I slipped np, with my faithful old dog close in my rear, to within clever  ahootihg distance, and just as the bnck stuck  his nose in the drink, I drew a bead upon his J  top-knot,.and over he tumbled, and splurged  und bounded awhile, when I came up and relieved him by cutting his wizen���������"  " Well, but what has that to do with an adventure f} said Riley.  " Hold on a bit, if you please, gentlemen���������  by Jove it had a great deal to do with it. For  while I was busy skinning the hind quarters  of the buck, and stowing away the kidney fat  in my hunting shirt, I heard a noise like the  breaking of bush under a moccasin up 'the  bottom.' My dog heard it and started, to ve-  connitre, and I lost no time in reloading my  ride. I had hardly got my priming out before  my dog raised a howl and broke through the  legs to ground and started again. I heard  every bound he made after me. I ran until  the fire.flew out of my eyes,aod the old dog's  tongue hung out of his mouth a quarter of a  .yard/long.!? vy.���������..;���������:---.  .-:��������� :  y" Phe-e-e-e-w I" whistled somebody. ;  ;��������� f'Fact, gentlemen. Well, what I was to do  I didn't know-T-rifle empty, no big trees about  and a murdering Injin close in my rear; and,  what was worse, just then it occurred to me  that I was not a great ways from a big creek  and there! should be pinned at last. Just at  this juncture, I struck my toe against a root,  and down I tumbled, and my old dog over me.  Before I could scrabble up���������r  " The Injin fired t" gasped the woodsman.  :" He did, gentlemen, and I felt the ball  strike me under the shoulder; but that didn't  seem to put any embargo upon my locomotion, for as soon as I got up, I took off again,  quiteJVeshened by my fall! I heard the redskin coming close behind me, and every minute I expected to have his; tomahawk dashed  into my head or shoulders. .    .  " I was now within a hundred yards of the  creek, could see the smoke from the settlement chimneys; a few more jumps and I was  by the creek. The Injin.was close upon me���������  he gave a whoop, and I raised my rifle ; on  he< came, another whoop! whoop! and he was  within fifty yards of me. I pulled my trigger,  and���������"  "And killed him?" chuckled Riley.  " No. sir, I missed fire!"  " And the redskin ?" shouted the old woodsman in a frenzy-of excitement  "Fired and killed me !"

Its first appearance in public is suld  to have  been at the coronation of Phillip II. of Spain.  Its hiBtory for nearly three centuries after  that is not known, but some twenty years since  it was smoked several times a day  by King  Ludwig of Bavaria. ^ About this time Lola  Montez was quite intimate with the  imbecile  kin������, and it is to be presumed that she wheedled him out of it    When Lola was obliged to  leave Munich in a hurry,  she packed  It up  with such other baggage as she was allowed  to carry away, and brought it to the United  States.   After her death it was sold, with the  balance of ker elfeets; but how it i,ame to  Chicago is a question "which we are not able  to answer.
