AKf.CrOTK8 OF CATLIH. We have seen a most interesting let ter, says the Loudon Moraine; Advertiser, from a young man reocntly settled in Brazil, in which he speaks of a renc:ntre with Catlin, the celebrated ethnographer and traveller. He met him in George Town, Poraarara, and was immediately rcc gnized, although it was ten years since they had seen each other in the Egyptian Halt. "You won't know rof," he said to Catlin, "it is ten years since you saw me.'' Catlin, in answer, pro nounced his name in an instant. They proceeded together 1500 miles, "by land and by water, through forests and swamps and prairies," following the course of the Amazon, and we select the following in cidents on the journey. The first re lating to Colt's pistols, contains a hint to some old chiefs in England. Wo must explain that Catlin had received the name of " Governor" from his youthful associate: IIow the Old Chief was astonished by a Colt.?" The Governor had one of Colt's pistols in his belt, and one of his i evolving ritles always in his hand, and I had the old Minie, with whose power you are somewhat acquainted. I had let out the idea that tne Governor's gun rould shoot ail day without re loading, which made an illustration necessary. They were all anxious to see it " set in motion." and 1 placed the door of our tent, which was a part of a cow-Lkin stretched on a hoop, at the distance of sixty or seventy yards, with a bull's eye in tkc centre. The whole village had as sembled, and the Governor took his posi tion and went off?one! two! three! four ! five ! six !?I then stepped up and told him that was enough, I presume.1: and while the old Chief was assuring him that they were all convinced, and. it were a pity to waste any more ammu nition. the Governor was snapping the empty cylinder otf. and another one on, with six charges more, without their ob serving what he was doing?he offered to proceed, but all were satisfied that his j gun would shoot all day without stop ping, and this report travelled ahead of us to all the tribes we afterwards visited in that region." fiiiiffhe next is a tiger story : Keep Cool, and don't Spill the Gray y. ?" On*, day when he had landed, and most of our party were lying asleep under the shade ot some large trees, the Governor and I had collected wood and made a large lire, over which we were loastiug a fat pig whicV I had shot fr.'in the boat during the morning. 1 was squat - ted down on one side Of the fire, hold ing a short-handled frying pan in which we had made some very rice gravy, which the Governor, who was squatted down opposite to me, was ladling over the pig, with an Indian wooden spoon. All of a sudden I observed his eye fixed upon something over my shoulder, when he said to me in a very low tone, " Now 1 want you to keep perfectly cool, and don't spill your gravy?there is a splen did tiger behind you !" I held fast to the frying pan, and turning my head gradually around, I had a full view ol the felluw within eight paces of me, lying flat on his side, and with his paws luting up and playing with the legs of one ot our Spaniards, who had laid himself down upon his belly and was last asleep. Our rifles were left in the boat. The Gov ernor drew himself gradually down the bank, on his hand and feet, ordering me not to move; I was in hopes he would have taken his old Mime, but he pre ferred his own weapon, and getting it to bear upon the beast, he was obliged to wait some minutes for it to raise its head, so as not to endanger the poor Sftaniard ; at the crack of the rifle the animal gave a piercing screech, ar.d leaped about fifteen feet straight into the air, and fell dead. The Spaniard leaped nearly as far in a different direction ; and at the same instant, from behind a little bunch of bushes on the opposite side, and not half the distance from our fire, and right behind the Governor'6 back, where he had been sitting, sprang the mate, which darted into the thicket and disappeared, We skinned this beau tiful animal, which was shot exactly be tween the eyes, and after ail hands had withdrawn to the boat waited several hours iu hopes that the other one would show itself again, but we waited in vain, and lost our game." HlKINQ HIMSELF U8EFUL Duiiug the session of a wealthy merchant?in conformity with the cistom of the times?gave a dinnei party t<> a few gentlemen, among whom was r? i:.ember of Congress of that period. On tl.? ppointed day, however, the lady of tli. Louse was somewhat annoyed a I an cliI hour by the intrusion of an old man it the door. Having been met by a ser vant, he inquired if the proprietor of tli j house?whom we will call Mr. Topham?was at home- Upon receiving a negative reply, and being furthermore informed that he would not be at home for some three or four hours, the old man said, "Well, being as I am here, I may as well remain until he comes." "Please wait a moment," said the 9ervant, "1 will call Mrs. Topham to the door, and sec what she will say." The servant then ran and called the merchant's wife, who made her appearance. The old mar then repeated what be had said to the servant?that being as he was there, he might as well remain until her husband came. "Well," replied Mrs T.,"ifvoc will stay, just walk through the alley and go back to the kitchen and take i seat." Nothing daunted, the old mai obeyed orders, and passed through th< alley to the kitchen, where he found Mrs T. and the servants very busily eugag<K iu preparing dinner. Supposing bin some old man Keeking employment, Mrs T. was five in calling into requisition hi services in 1ier work of preparing dinner I and Ue was equally willing and ready t< render all assistance possible. ??01d man, said she, "suppose you take the bucket, go to the hydrant, and draw us Home water." He at once and really complied with the request. "Old man," agft'n said she, "suppose you assist us a little in preparing dinner, as we give a dinner-party to-day, and are rerj ranch hurried indeed. Just peel a few potatoes, if you please." No sooner was the re quest made than the 'old man' got to work p;eimg potatoes with a rigfrt good will. After all things were sufficiently ad vanced to release Mrs. T. from further supervision, she went into her chamber to -arrange bcr toilet to receive her hus band s guests. At the proper hour, her husband came in; and then, one by one, came those who were to dine with him on that day. In dye time all arrived but one M. C. Mr. Topham then be* gen to express his surprise at the ab sence of the Virginia representative, as he thought he would certainly have been one of the first, if not the first, to make bis appearance, knowing that his dinner at home was an early one. When about coming to the conclusion that the \ lrginia M. C. would fail to make his appearance, Mrs. T.'s memory, which seemed to have proved rather treacherous, became effulgent, and she acquainted her husband with the fact that there was an old man in the kitcheu who had been waiting to see him for the last three or fourhouis. Mr. T. imme diately repaired to the kitchen to ascer tain the "old man's" wants, when lo, and liehold: who should he find but our M. t>. himself. Astonished beyond measure, and wii h confused utterance.he exclaimed,' "Why how came you here?" lie simp y replied, "I was invited to the kitchen ? >y jour wife, and as I came much be fore your dinner hour, I have been mak ing myself useful." at once invited and accompan ied Jam into the parlor, and introduced him to his wife and guests as the -Hon. ttobert Rutherford, of Virginia." The lady's feelings can better be imagined by the reader than described by the writer; but the balance of the day passed oil pleasantly, saving the lady's abashment resulting from not recognizing the ?? \ irginia Member of Congress." "iHE IMMORTAL SHALES" A Sunday journal, a week or two ago, > peaking of the performances of some new acior whose name has escaped us, ?ays: " ihs motions and his voice re minded us of the immortal Shales." We never hear hij name mentioned without bursting into an involuntary laugh. Bos ton is fund of jokes, but this was one of trie ncnest ever concocted in that city. Shales was a half wnted, ungainly cub, with a tolerably good memory for the acquisition of his "parts," and he was persuaded by some wa^s io go upon the stage. Ichahod Crane was a Count D Orsay in comparison with his figure. His !egs were long and crooked, his g*it mdcscribaUe, he had a retreating forehead and chin, and the most meaningless, lack lustre eyes we ever saw on the stage or off it. lie was the butt of Boston for nearly two w.eks, tilling the Trvmont theatre, by his personation of the crook cd-back " Richard the Third," to reple tion, night after night. Never was such obslrvperous laughter and applause ever heard within its wallsThere was a wreath thrown to him one night from the ^Ltry that would hive been a tressurc to a green grocer. It was made upon a hay band, wound round a stift hoop about three :eet in diameter, and was composed of large cabbages, white and red, long parsnips, carrots, turnips, mammoth po tatoes, and red peppers?all very hand somely contrasted. If the wreath had hit him, it would have crushed him to the stage ! , W e saw it afterwards, when the irreat actor came to lullfil a New York engage ment. in the ottice of the Astor House ; and it was a most effective advertisement for him. Before coming hither, he took " a ben efit in Boston. The house was crowded in every part. A " service of plate," (made of sheet iron.) was to be presented to him, after the performance, bv a com mittee, of which Col. Greene, of the Bos ton Morning Post, was chairman, and who was to make the presentation in the uniform of an old continentaler; but he backed out, and a substitute was ob tained. Shales stood in the middle of the stage, not far from the foot-lights, holding at arms' length the " massive service," bowing, and trying to look his gratitude, when down from above came five or six paper bags, full of flour, which covered him all over, leaving him " as white as a miller!" But there he stood, bowing till the curtain fell. . One terribly stormy night in March we walked a mile to hear Shales play Richard, at the National Theatre. Su k a performance! Pen cannot depict it! Ilis stage walk !?who that ever saw it can ever forget it / Such gestures, such solemn gestures, of limbs and features, except in a monkey, we never saw before, lie was encored in the death fl-ht with Richmond six times, until tired nature could hold out no longer. He was killed in a different position every time, and died all over the stage !" What a death gurgle was his! Oh! it was too rich! We laughed until we were too hoarse to make laughter vocal; and one old thea tre-goer and good theatrical critic in the pit, who was nearer to the " workings" of that matchless face, actually fell from his seat in a spasm of cachination. "Im mortal Shales!" "Yes, indeed" We would go farther this night to see his comical tragedy than any live comedian we ever saw, except M poor Power," or llarry Placide. He was literally him self alone"?Me Shales !?Knickerbocker Magazine. ftjr- It is worse to deal with an ass than to deal witft a rogue; for a rogwe will, sometimes, do right; but an ass ?, J does cot know how to do right, even > i when he is bo disposed
