MAGAZINE DA^ The principle of antagonism between this country aud England is curiously illustrated by the fact that while our Magazine literature shows every appearance of vitality, it has fallen into comparative decadence in England. Blackwood's Magazine continues the even tenor of its way—living chiefly on its former reputation, and occasionally proving, by a particularly brilliant article, that some of the old spirit was remaining. Since the conclusion of" My Novel," it has principally lived upon serial stories, by various hands,—such as Ha jlky's " Lady Leo'a Widowhood," Mrs. Olipitant's « Zaidee" and " Tho Athelings," and so on. It has now commenced another novel by Bulwer, which will probably continuo a piece de resistance for the next two years. The Dublin University Magazine, little known in this counttV, comes next to Slackwood, across the water. Despite its Tory politics, It has great merits, and has been especially strong on Irish literature, poetry, biography, an...

COMMUNICA TIONS [For The Press.] FREE MASONKV. The institutions of a country arc eminently worthy of considerationa.s denoting or influonoing tho prevailing chnrauteristics of tho people. In » country like ours, one can scarcely eoinprohcnd the character of tho people without understanding ith imtitutiun.^ which, independent of tho government and its avowed objectsaro established by popular will. If theso institutions aro native, they donoto at least iho peculiar tendency of the mind ot the locality in which thoy originate. If thoy aVi 0?5lt^c. they can ba introduced only by a favorable disposition of general sentiment. If they abide, it ia bec&uso they have found or created a general state of feeling consistent with tho principles on which they aro established. We need scarcely say that in a country where ThuggiHin could oxlnt fur any considerable time, there must havo existed or been created a state of feeling quite at variance with what is usually denominated Christ...

In September, Queen Victoria would pay a return visit to Fontalnblcau. Yet, two months agoLord Palmer?ton stated in the House of Coinmoas thav the Queen had "do pleasure" in receiving Napoleon and Eugenio on a former occasion, that her doing so was a distasteful act of duty, and that she disliked tho expense.

Punch on the Alaaimolh Steamahip Great Eastern. Several incorrect statements having appeared in relation to the Great Eastern (now lying like a red whale in Mr. Scott Russel's yard, at Millwall, and so frightening people that they cut across the river and take refuge, by scores, in the houses of Messrs. Heart and Quartermaine, who administer white-bait and iced punch with tho most humane promptitude), Mr. Punch has been requested to publish the following information touching the arrangements on board tho vessel i Captain Harrisonthe captain who hw been selected in contravention of all rules observed in the publio service, tho proprietors of the ship having engaged him for tho vulgar roason that he was notoriously tho b<*t captain on the best line of steamers in the world, will merely attend to the comparatively unimportant duty of taking care of the vessel.

George Strphrnson, thr Fatnrr of Rallroadi. Though mainly an engineer, he was also a daring thinker on many scientific questions; and there was scarcely a subject of speculation, or a department of recondite science , on which he had not employed his faculties in such a way as to have formed huge and original views. At Drayttm the conversation often turned upon such topics, and Mr. Ste-PHKsisox freely joined in it. On one occasion, an animated discussion took place between Himself and Dr. Bccklasd oh one of his favorite theories as to the formation of coal. But the result was, that Dr. Bccklass, a much greater master of tongue-fence than Stephe.i sos, completely silenced him. Next moroiag before breakfast, when he »»• walking in the grounds deeply pondering, Sir William Follktt came up and asked him what he was thinking about i " Why, Sir Williax, I am thinking over that argument I had with Buckl.vnd last night.

The .«k».*bo first discovered gold in California 1 ^ has beco me a poor man and homeless. The papers announce the sale of Ilock Farm, the home of Gen. Sutter, on Feather river, under the Sheriff's hammer. This was the last of the magnificent domain, which , at one timewas the property of General Sutter, in California. His generous unsuspecting nature was not sufficient to cope with the shrew ilucss of lawyers and speculators, when his lands became of value; and so they have all been wrested from him, much of them, by what, in the parlance of trade, would be called "legitimate transactions;" much by bare-faced fraud, says the Alta newspaper.
