Of the twenty-four spe'eiin'ens of black tea analyzed, every one was found _to!! be genuine. Of a like-number of green teas, all were adulterated.

Sometimes, however, _. iridigp, kaolin, or China clay, and tumeric powder were found in addition._t That species ' of tea,which is denominated gunpowder, " was adulterated in other ways by admixture with leaves not those of tea, with paddy husk, and particularly with " lie tea" so called, a leaf which resembles the tea leaf closely, and is sent to this country from China in vast quantities, to be employed in adulteration here.

A Good Editor. A good editor , a competent newspaper conductor, is like a general or a poet—born, not made. Exercise and experience gives facility, but the qualification is innate, or it is never manifested. On the London daily papers, all the great historians, novelists, poets, essayists and writers have been tried, and nearly all have failed'. We might say all; for after a display of brilliancy, brief and grand, they died out* literally. - Their resources were exhausted. " I can," said the late editor of the Times to Moore, " find any number of men of genius to write for me, but very seldom one man of common sense." Nearly- all successful editorsi have been men of this • description. Campbell, Carlyle, Bulwer,and D'Israeli failed; Barnes, Sterling, Phillips, succeeded; and DeLane and Low_^succeeded, A good, editor seldom writes for hip paper ; he reads, judges, selects, dictates, 'directs, alters, and combines ; and to do this ,well, .he has but little time for, compositio...

A correspondent of the New-York Evening Post tells the story. Mrs. J. C. Loudon, widow of the celebrated landscape gardener, took a great delight in prosecuting the favorite studies of her husband's life. On one occasion, wishing to make some researches in the department of abori ' culture, she wrote to the Duke of Wellington for permission to see his Waterloo beeches (the celebrated avenue planted on his estate to commemorate his greatest victory.) Mrs. Loudon's chir ography was none of the most legible—so that when the Duke read her letter, he mistook beeches for breeches, and supposed the epistle a request for the inspection of that indispensable garmen...
