HABITS OF TIIE XIGII1ISGALE.

It as in the dava preceding tne pairing time, and those of tue season of courtship," that he puts forth his greatest brilliancy and his 'oadest vocal owers the melodies ol his "married life" being of a calmer character, though still . far above any other music of the woods. On their first arrival, contests take place for favorite localities, and the strongest and most courageous prevail. As the same individual birds and then- ofJspring return to the same places each successive season, these coir-bats often take place between the male .parent and the strongest young mil- bird of tho first brood in fact, allocking as it may seem, between father and son, and the young prodigal often succeeds in beating off his parent, who haH to put up with the second-beat position, though perhaps still triumphing in song over his stalwart aon, from his new uominiun, aome thirty or forty yards from the old one. The plumage of both aexsa ia very similar, a rich ferrugineous light-brown on the back, getting rather brighter at the tail, while the general tone of the under parta is a hght silvery gray. The nest is a slight but very picturesque structure composed of small twigs in the outer part, and with substances of a somewhat softer texture in the interior, such -as drv tonts of grass, stray horse hairs, or other anitabie materials. Tbo eggs sre about the aiae of those of the hedge-sparrow, but rather longer, being more oval in form. Their color ia a rich greenish, olive, rather darker and greener in tone than ordinary brown psrer, and they have no spots or markings of any kind. The plumage df tue young bird is brown, niottlfcd all over with lightish ochreoua spots, more ox toss regularly distributed. In general appearance vounr nightingales ao closeiy resemble young robins, while euil in then- neat featuera, that they axe oltta mistaken for each other. To conclude with a bathos, we are told bv ! the Italian naturalist (quoting Petrarch) that a certain landowner in the north of Italv got up night after, night, in the nigbtinL-alo season, for the express purpose, of destroying the nocturnal annoyances wnich disturbed bjs rest; and that not aucoeeding in extirpating the enemies of sleep in this manner, ho prx ceeded to the extreme measure at mt:n down tho woods to a oonauierabla duttxnrw round his bona, which proved a more etteo-tual defence against the in tolerable nuuar.ee.

H -re old Count' Christian Ludovic had lived fur six months when - the cholera first visited Europe.

Then he would lay his offerings on the grass bordering the open place in tho centre of the wood, and the old mad Graf would parley with him from a distance, through the window, asking who was dead, and who dying, and expressing a fear that bordered on childishness, of the hearer approach of. bis old retainer. The wood was called Leonoren Wald, Hilda told me, because the beautiful Leonore von Lauenbruck, m ptraymg through its sylvan glades, bad met a young painter, who wandering with his knapsack -on his back across the country, had hero stopped to take a sketch of some pretty view toward tho sea. Her " sweet eyes" made a speedy impression on fhe young artist and her " low replies" completed all that those orbs had begun. And so she had come day by dav across his path like some beautiful vision, until all his artist heart was won, and he vr.irned to tell her of his worship, bnt dared not."

The great surgeon, John Hcnteh, who loft nothing uninvestigated within the widest range then known to his professional pursuits, accotntod for the extraordinary power of the mgthinrale's song by the size and strength of the musdes of the throat, which he found to be much more extensively developed than in any other siiging bird ; and this unusual development of tin organs of the throat may account for the traditions of talking nightingale. Pust asserts, for instance, that Dances and BuTaxmccs, the sons of Cxacd tits, bad nightingales that cotid speak both Greek and Latin ; - nd thit these birds might have been taught ky ingenious Gre.uk trainers to utter a few-phrases with tolerable distinctness is exceedingly probable, as such traditions have always some foundation ; but when tho enthusiastic old naturalist of the Trajanean era goes oa to tell us that the' birds in question carried om debates 44 in rignt good rhetorical form," we aw compelled to uoubt the assertions 01 our venerable authority, whose Fuperstitions on this subject one is nevertheless inclined to treat with tne greatest leniency, partly on -ccount of his eviuent erithuaia'bui ana enure belief m what ho stttes, but mora especially on account of his utc Ltiitlul una accurate ueecnp.ion of t.ie nightiu-g .Ic'ii tuii', aa in-, lio oouL-t, had often heard it himself in tiie -jiod about hi beautiti.l vilui at C uio the L'o-.uO which, then an uon, "i.is esteemed o.'.e ul tho -ouest spoUi oi hoi . fi rn luiiy.

This latent and lliXul power of turning round upon a too confitlent adversary was a well-known cl aracterisuc aud essential ingretJient in the character ot the Court Jester, who, amid the ecoentE;cities of an unsettled and dl-regulated mteheit, wasoiten more knave tiian tooL - the tlashca ot sense and clev-erne that thus came out were all the more Btrikimr from the general darkness and duiiuuse which the-y enhvwued, and they alwavs command that svmpathy whicu we so re-tdily bestow noon the weak, when they get the hotter of the strong or insolent. Some of th6 ' sayings or answers ascribed to fools are very good.

We know well the revenge that poor Akchcx AnxtsTBOKQ look upon Archbishop Li CD, wno had forbidden ium to speak of such magnates, bnt conld not prevent him from eaying, as ais grace before aaeat, " Great praise to God, and little Laud to the Devil." It is reported of more than one Court fool, tnd among others of Trebocixt, the fool of Fbaxcis L, that when told by his sovereign that if a certain court er beat him to death, as Ice threatened, he wo aid bang him the hour after, his request was tkat his Atajesty would rather do so the hour before. The earliest French fool on record seems to have been one named Jkax, at the Court of CHARLES tho fcimole, of whom Dr. Do&ut telis us some auecdotet. "This (rood fellows infiuer.ee was eo great, that Charles once remarked to him he thought they bad better change places.

" What!" cried the star tied king, " with what intention have they risen ?" " W ell," said Jeax, placing bis finger on his nose, 44 probenly witn tne intention ol lying down again at bea-time." One of the best examples of this kind of mv-looked-ior sagacity occurs in a story in lis he lain, where a cook socking to charge a" porter for atrng a crust of bread to the accompaniment of the savour that came from bis kitchen, the die-pate is referred to poor tool who is p-ssing, and who, after gravely hear-ng the paruee, uo-cided that the cook should be paid for the rnmetl of bis she?4 with the chink of the porter's money. AsxA JirUish EetttsK. Japajckss Paacxfpi, Japanese porcelain ' is extremely various, and, like the lacquer work, much less perfect now than ia fanner epochs, j The white and bine ware would seldom, if ever, be found to equal the nobler rn-'"" specimens from the Imperial manufactory such aa the j " atx-markera " or " fonr-cxarkera " which Ulna- j irate the period frost about the middle of the fifteenth to that of the eighteenth century. Bnt , even the ordinary Japanese china of the present day presents endless artiatio attractions and bants ; It may mostly be distinguished from the t "nintjA by its robust precision of lines. One piece will show a group of storks sxnlting amid mid the waves ia glowing red- aad rayrmr cat his gilded beams. Another piece wiu have quaintly designed decorative circles scattered over its sortaos, some in gilt contours, some in blue. One of these farcies is the figure of a swnoptng stork ; another of a tortoise drawing a kmg wake of water ; another of larch-foliage ; another of key-like geometric lines. Or one nandles damtdy the daintiest ol manufacture! a xnmietare cap of egg-shell china, with s ended design (say of a kingfisher on a spray of river grass, his long beak cutting acainst tne circle of the moon him) the china b lug tnckieed in a wondrous network of cane or young bamboo of the finest mehes, and to perfectly aliuted to the form of the porcelain that one fclniost refuses to believe the whole can be an actual combination of two so diverse maieTUtkf. These sre termed bssket-rtrps. bometinicev where the patternsof Japanese porcelain are elal-Ca.e, vita hliny hues alien dispose! in compartments, the color is not to be unreservedly approved-, sinning by harshness of the suongcr unta, which are too glaringly and cuttingly oj pomxl to those of a more delicate description.

I have a very vmd re-coQcclion of the charge of tho French cavalry. Those who advanced on the-nght square of tho Fifty-second crircssicrs, Lavng not only a steel breastplate but the same covering for. the back. Aa I observed before, the pleasing part of the charge was that, for several minutes, . perhaps ten, we were relieved from the cannonade which the French ifkd kept np upon ua, except when their cavalry charged. They camo on in very gallant Btyhi, ana in very steady order, first of all at the trot, then at a g.vllop, -td! they wyre within forty or fifty yanla of the front face of tho square, when one or two horses having been brought down, in clearing the obstacle they got a somewhat new direction, which carried them to either Hank of the lace of the square, which direction they one and all preferred to the charging home and riding on to our bayonets. Notwithstanding their armour, many of the men wore laid low, many horses also were brought down, and the men had a difficulty in disentangling themse ves from them. The cuirassiers parsed tho square, receiving the lire ot all tho four faces, aud proceeded up to the crest of the British position. Thev then re-, formed, and camo down the slope aain upon us in the same way, aud again avoiding to charge home upon the rear face ot the square, as they could scarcely hope to penetrate the Bquares; possibly it wan a reconiiisauce ordered to bo mado bv the Emperor, who bad no other means of ascertaining what lorco the Duke oi cuing-ton had at that time on Uie reverse slope of tne posit on.
