Gentlemanly barkeeper mixing drinks in highly artistic manner, pouring liquid from one tumbler to another in parabolic curve over his head.--General hum of conversation, in which the words "Secession," "Southern confederation." "No, how you can fix it," "That long, subsided, nigger stealing son of a gun, Abe Lincoln," "No sir-ree, hoss," most frequently heard. Shuffling of feet, clinking of ice in huge pitchers, etc. Works of art acorn walls — female figure in high style of undress most patronized.

Punch on the American rebellion.the Civil war in America. Charleston, July 26 1861. Mr. Punch, Sir --I have a proposition to make. Your valuable journal, world-wide reputation, great influence, ought to have, like other papers, special correspondent at seat of war. I am the man. In short, war correspondent by nature. If you accept my offer I will telegraph my letters to St. Johns, N. B., whence they will be forwarded to you via steamer — thus you will obtain details ahead of all rivals. Of course in sending communications over the wires, I must be as concise as possible, to save time and expense, which may produce a certain twitchiness of style, to this, however you may not object. Accompanying letter specimen of my style:-- Am now in Charleston, very centre of secessionism. Was told in the North I should be able to get neither lodging nor food in this city. How absurdly things are exaggerated at distance. Found little or no difficulty in securing fair portio

sentiment. Head waiter at hotel weeping bitterly at breakfast, inquired cause; told me had suffered severe pecuniary loss; three months ago was worth fifteen hundred dollars, now would not sell for more than seven hundred. Free niggers go about streets trying to sell themselves, in order to realize before civil war breaks out. My opinion is, there will be no secession for long. North will cut off supply of ice, Southerners will have none to make mint juleps; whole South in a state of Ancient Mariner, have to cave in, and there will be an end of this escapade. Once more eagle will soar above prostrate body of defeated anarchy; lion will lie down with lamb; everything O. K.* Talking of customs of country, I wish you would publish accompanying portrait of Col. Bronze, gentlemanly proprietor of Pavilion Hotel. Also, portraits of Jim Snookenback, gentlemanly barkeeper, and Mr. Kelly, gentlemanly porter of hotel. These little attentions quite usual, I assure you — custom of count

As for food live on clover, or something confoundedly like it. Call it gumbo, have it three times a day. Yesterday dined off split chicken, looked like arms of Austria broiled. For breakfast they serve us species of vulcanized pancake, known I think (mind only think, so if mistaken do not set me down as another Mr. Arrowroot, of Times correspondence notoriety), known I think, as corn-dodgers, or flap-jack.--One plastic substance served up with treacle, so as to resemble blister, is I know called buckwheat cake.
