It engrosses bath public and private attention, and forms tbe staple of conversation at all ti'jaes, and everywhere society has been startled and agitated, and no doubt will continue to be curious and excited until the close of the final scene. When ''all is over' doubtless we shall fall back into our oil state of placidity, and the Russians themselves, or the greater part of them, will be shouting ' le roi at mort. Vive le roi!' — for the course of affairs, though merely checked fcr a time, is not to be permanently arrested, even by so monstrous a crime as the murder of the Emperor of all the Rus sias.

ThoEe who are unacquainted with the propensity of Britons to grumble on every possible occasion might reasonably suppose our favored race, like poor Mark Tanley, « was always a suffering.' English people, according to their own showing, appear to be in a chronic state of misery and misfor tune, and seem very anxious to establish a «olid reputation for being the most ill-used mortals tinder the sun. At present our chief cause of complaint is that we hardlv laow if there be any such planet, and the conviction that it still shines upon us Tests solely on the assurance of faith, for we have no ocular demonstration of the fact. One might almost suppose we were going to have another deluge, for England ha6 been flooded to a most inconvenient and ?disastrous extent, and the injury done to ?our wearing apparel is one of the conse quences of die unceasing downpour which women are not at all likely to overlook...
