Mr. Mason's manners. what are good manners? What is politeness as distinguished from rusticity? Miss Leslie has written a little elementary book intended to teach our Yankee girls how to behave themselves everywhere — in the church, in the d been betrayed into these suggestions by seeing mentioned in the newspapers a painful error, into which the Honorable John Y. Mason, the august representative of this country near the Court of Louis Bonaparte, recently fell. We wish to speak with tenderness of Mr. Mason, because, notwithstanding his innocence of the vernacular of Gaul, he has shown a great desire to acquit himself creditably, by arraying himself upon court-days in the small-clothes and cocked-hat proscribed by the late Mr. Man when an ill-conditioned cur overthrew a candle, and burned all the crooked mathematical computations of years. Oh, John Y. Mason! say we, thou little knowest what mischief thou wert in danger of doing! The venerable Benton once said of Embassad

before the imperial eyes, we do not see why Mr. Mason should not have the pay as well as another, sion to see the Beast of the Tuileries. But Mr. Mason's claim must be considered as paramount untir these circumstances, what cruelty is it to Mr. Mason, and what injustice to his creditors, to cirhas written a hand-book of manners, to which Mr. Mason no doubt gives his nights and days, just as if not to the embassador! And to impute to Mr. Mason this offence, when his fate was in the handsnd children by these presents, that Embassador Mason did not hug the Empress.

is: Resolved, That the Committee of Schools and Colleges inquire into the expediency of reporting a bill, prohibiting School Commissioners throughout the Commonwealth from subscribing to any teacher, male or female, who hails from the North of Mason and Dixon's line, unless they shall have resided in the State of Virginia for at least ten successive years previous. The fact that Mr. Matthews should consider such a motion as this necessary to the salvation of the State, would seem to show bivalves, why has the Governor of that State neglected her boys? What is a steam-packet running to France in comparison with well-educated girls? Was ever such fatuity? Where were the native, well-born, orthodox teachers hailing from south of Mason and Dixon's line --good, safe, responsible guides in petticoats or pantaloons, with sound Constitutional principles and proper views of the Christian religion? We have heretofore thought that a demand in the market indicated a dearth. But Gov
Fair but Fierce. in the name of Zenobia, Boadicea, Moll Flanders, Jean d'arc, and the Maid of Saragossa, we begin this article! Now that Messrs. Mason and Slidell are given up, just, for all the world, like a pair of fugitive niggers, another vexatious question has arisen, viz: Did the lovely Miss Slidell, upon the deck of the Trent steamer, slap the face of the unfortunate Lieut Fairfax? Commander Williams, that gallant tar, who suffered such agonies on the occasion, was the recipient of a dinner of the public variety on his arrival in England. In his post-prandial speech, Commander Williams went at length into the above-mentioned question, and made one of those nice distinctions which would have been appreciated in a middle-age court of love and honor.

She did strike Mr. Fairfax-but she did not do it with the vulgarity of gesture which has been attributed to her. In her agon
