Ever Vig Ilant and no unobtrusive he had Occas Ion to give Gen. Pope a very quiet Bat most impressive lesson on Good manners and we doubt not that one was quite enough for the pompous commander. We quote from the Tribune i heard while at Pillow an anecdote of Gen. Pope an officer of ability hot some of both houses second monday of Congo a before the of december when the used to laugh at it. Id these Days the Sab treasurer at York has Hia grip on the Throat of nearly ail the Bankers in the country and we notice that none of them Are disposed even to smile when the name of or. Van Dyck is mentioned. The delights of travel to England English still lock the doors of their passenger railway cars and provide no Mentis of communication from them for the passengers and still the London papers chronicle incidents of robbery and outrage on the Road the frequency of which made hem monotonous. The latest Cense is that of a gentleman who was parroted by a fellow passenger while the train was at full Speed thrown Down and robbed of Lis watch and purse. The robber escaped 1 the victim was left alone to Ponder Over his loss till the end of the journey was reached. The notional love of Sec Union As the English pm nose it is too Strong to be shaken by such trifling discomfort As this. Scarce loss a person who Alt he professes.
