The following extract from the Saturday Review, a leading English journal, is what we would call rather severe on the Ameri can tourist and we should think it would damp the ardor of that immense crowd that annually feel it incumbent upon themHelvea to pay tribute in homage and money to the British lion. "All ways of tweaking and acting which strike us aa being especially vulgar or disa greeable, we at once denounce as Ameri canisms, thereby showing the very low es timation in which we hold our transma rine cousins.

Ve are satisfied that the life of the far mer's wife is not always what it should be or what it would be, if farmers only stop ped to consider a moment. It in not from a want of affection that their lives are not less burdensome, for certainly there are no class of men more affectionate than farmers. But do they all consider the bur den imposed on their -wires? Let us see what are the duties imposed on a large number of them. They cook, wash, sweep, milk the cows, chum the butter, make the cheese, spin, weave, make and re pair the clothing, etc., etc., ad infinitum. Now this is no overdrawn picture. There are hundreds of instances in every county in East Tennessee, where the farmer's wife performs all this drudgery.
