The Accountant w ill be in at­ tendance with the Monthly Committee. D e ­ posits, from one dollar and dpwards, will he received, and a bank book, with a copy o f the \ By-Law s, furnished each depositor. Similar institutions are in successful opera­ tion in different parts of this state, and expe­ rience has tested their utility, The weekly savings of an individual invested hero will ac­ cumulate and in a lew years amount to large sums. Many a prosperous citizen ow es liis iirst success to the havings Bank, and many an orphan has been placed beyond want, by a drudent investment here. It is earnestly hoped that all classes will im- prove the opportunity to invest a portion of their earnings, which they would otherwise spend, and thereby create a fund on whicl they can draw, when all other resources fail. <£idm c c tady, May 26,1834. ‘217 First class carriages li oui 115 Siiiie-streei.

My last letter left me in the theatre or opera of Milan, admiring its construction,and 16 marking upon the other uses to which as a fash­ ionable Exchange, it was devoted, than that o f the opera or the ballet. Generally, the fash ionables listen but little to the music, or re­ gard but little the spectacle, opening their eyes and their eyes only, to the favorite parts, turn­ ing at other times their backs upon the actors, and loudly chatting in their respective little circles—always awake, however, it is said, to the ballet, always wonder-struck by the “ de clamation o f the legs, which some French wo­ man has wittily said the people of Milan only hear. But there is no inattention now, for Malibran is on the boards—the wonderful Malibran, whose genius and acquisitions of languages are such that she is equally at home on the stage of London, or Paris, or Madrid, as on that of Milan—a native, as it were, in the four languages, able to pass as one lisping each from her infancy! The magnificent thea­ tre was filled in all its lodges, the royal lodge except, and throughout its broad parterre or pit. W henever she appeared or spoke, a ge­ neral hush which sounds much like our hiss of disapprobation, ordered all lo be still, and all was still as death. The Opera was Othello, but all unlike the Othello of Shalrspeare, ex­ cept that it was based upon that great tragedy and then metamorphosed to suit Italian con­ venience. But i f I had never heard o f the play, if I had not. known one word o f the language, and who can tell in what words any Opera is written amid the loud out-pouring of music, and the chant o f the singers?—vet, the mere expression, the mere looks of Malibran’s face, were enough to vivify, and make speak the play. In this the power of the actress, super­ added to the melody and power of the singer, Malibran so shoots ahead of the little and pret­ ty Grisi, whom many think her rival upon the stage, not that they can really think she is her rival in genius, but having often witness­ ed her excellence in the Opera o f the Puritani, where she so eminently distinguishes herself, they fancy that no one can be like her there or elsewhere. The Theatre, the Army, the Church!-—you see with what confusion a letter writing rnin- a^d personal impunity, if ^ t h oo,e8~ ^ tfi* United fotates, how broad-spread are ail tho topics Of public discussion! What an infinity of religions we have! and what an infinity o f parties too, so complicating to a poor devotee often that for the life of him, without the label o f his political owner, he cannot tell to what, party he belongs! Discussion with us revela in such an amplitude of space, that we are up­ setting, and setting-up too. every day of out­ lives the worst with the best, and the best with the worst o f principles—striking at what all this old world reserves, and fiorritying the Qlft world too by the new questions we agitate and settle, so that their wise ones know not whether to call us barbarians or devjlto, non a ° f them* however, ever fancying that yvc arq as civilized as they are. In England, where are the next freest people o f the globe, the freest from the armies, nnd from the espionage of the police—with a press perfectly free, save the salutary regulations of the law ot libel— with us almost as with them—discussion taken almost as broad a range, limited, however, by one tyranny—the tyranny of a severe, bitter, and misery-creating social system, which ex­ hibits this, anomaly, that while England is in j 1 politics and government the freest of all the European Kingdoms, it is in all the laws o f society, with its formalities and regulations, the most absolutely despotic that exists on the face of the globe. The topics o f conversation display thia demo­ cracy of tbe government mingled with the des- potis.m of society. An Englishman discusses politico,! questions os oti American discusses them save the few great principles our father land has not y e t d i s c o v e r e d - t a l k i n g of the con­ duct o f his rulers as we can talk of ours, with the same freedom and the same ease;—but I will venture to say from the experience of al­ most five hundred instances that almost the very first impression he will attempt to make upon your attention after a few m i n u t e s ac­ quaintance, is the society in which he moves, or ought to move, or expect to move, Tho company he keeps is always in his mouth.—- His great acquaintances, whether he has any or not, are about the first and last things you hear from him. The great society o f England, I verily believe, the young men of England love more than their God, for they sacrifice every thing o fthe heart, or the sentiment, risk­ ing thier lives every where all over the globe, solely it seems to me, to get into, it. The love of the titled is with an Englishman, (or an English wom en,) a passion, a perfect mono­ mania;—and hence he is ever talking o f it , for the reasons that I have given— that though ffe has one government as free as ours, yet he has another, invisible —unknown almost—but ter­ ribly powerful, acting without constitutions, or arms, but ever directing all eyes toward tho splendor of its throne.

Blit in Italy, these topics are not so distant nor so discordant as one may imagine. The Theatre is an engine as important as that of the Church or the Army. What politics are in England, plays are in Italy. The genius, the s p i r i t , the fermentation o f the people, pent up elsewhere, seek vent in and on the Thea­ tre. The Theatre becomes one of the great topics of discussion and dispute. As we di­ vide into parties upon men, they divide into p a r t i e s u p o n a c t o r s , a c t r e s s e s a n d p l a y s . I n the pit of Milan I have seen the man, who must have worked hard to earn a seat there, though the entrance is (theap enough compar­ ed with our prices, convulsed with enthusiasm, every limb agitated, every muscle in motion, his head swinging in ecstacy, and tears gush­ ing out of liis eyes under the pathos of Mali­ bran, where education too, and the finer and more cultivated sentiments seemed to be ne­ cessary to appreciate her skilful acting. But the play, the music, and the acting were prob­ ably the only things he understood. It may be, that he could not read and write. It was joylul to see him leap in his ecstacies, and pain­ ful too,—joyful from the caricature of passion unaffectedly displayed in a human being whose muscles were thus played upon as i f the ac­ tresses’ fingers ran over them, nnd mournful that a human being should be thus educated, as it were, with soul and body to nppeciate the theatre alone, wholly forgetful of the higher destinies of man. Elsewhere, 1 have seen the House divide into parties upon an actor, one side hissing as loud as a hiss can be hissed, and the other thundering applause, which last side, you well know, always wins the victory—in noise—for man has but one instrument to ex­ press disapprobation with, wheareas longue, feet, hands, all one’s brute force can express applause. Hence, by the way, perhaps, in Po­ litics as in the Theatre—the loudest brawlers are the greatest winners. The louder you scream, the more people will hear you. I love in journeying to mark the different to­ pics lhat engage the conversation of the peo­ ple, because thus I have an insight into their characters, and the influence that political and religious institutions have upon them, lt may be fancy in me, but 1 think 1 can see in this alone, the great line of demarcation between dillurent institutions of government for il is <rijven.me»t alone that can, at will, modify and quite change the people upon whom it operates, and this notwithstanding the people may be most happy and most prosperous under some despotisms that are o f a patriarchal character. Among all people, 110 matter under what form of government they live, there is a disposition to agitate about something. There must be some common topic lo engage the attention of the whole people. Government, 1 think, affects, or directs rather the characters o f these topics. Far example, in the United States, where there is not the least trammel upon dis­ cussion, except that of public opinion, which is often as severe and rigid in its mandates, 1 own, as the censorship, with this difference, however, that a man can have it with pecuniary gland in England, I solemnly believe, is up­ held as the Church of the State, by the sole influence that it is vulgar to belong to any other; for as the Church o f England is the on­ ly fashionable Church, there is danger e f los­ ing caste i f you visit any other? The all-ab­ sorbing public topics of England, in its circles and its families, are, therefore, politics and society, the difference from the United States consisting in the second being made a primary topic, while with us it is only a secondary and minor one. In France, where tho press is noli as free as the English press, where Government; is another character, where an army must bo strong, and where a police is vigilant over the politics as well as over the morals ofth e peo- pele, but where there is something of au e- quality in society, in its freedom quite ap­ proximating to that of ours, politics are less discused, or more carefully discussed,—while o f society little or nothing is said, but as it affords pleasure or instruction. The vent that Politics allows not, seeks to discharge titself upon the Drama, or the Ball, or the Dress, The Theatre there begins to assume an impor­ tance and an influence, not known in the U. States, (for though as a people we are more attached, I think, to theatrical spectacles than the English, yet the Theatres cd’our cities are not so much supported by the home population us by the travelling, that have no where else to spend their evenings,)—and this importance in France, far above that o f the Theatre in England, becomes all important when you go over the Alps into Italy. Every stage-coach you enter, exhibits the interest people take in the Theatre the paroxysms of enthfrsiam they have the fierce war o f words and ges­ tures they can wage. You hear them too in the veterinos,at the Cafes llie Trattorias, where they sip their coffee, or nibble their dinners, you hear them ring with every mouthful, some discussion upon the Drama. Thus, as 1 havo said before, as our people talk politics, the Italians talk o f Plays. As we talk o f our great men, they talk of Iheir great singers'and com ­ posers. Bellini is their Webster. Mulibran Gen. Jacks J U , say except that the sw eet e n ­ chantress takes her i n s p i r a t i o n f r o m the spar- klcs of Champagne—the wicked say,—while n o t e v e n a f e d e r a l i s t w i l l a c c u s e O l d H i c k o r y of any thing—but smoking too much. Rubi- ni and Tambourini may pass for Van Burens and Clays of the day — for just as high as such men stand in the estimation of their parties in America they stand with their parties here _ They have o n l y transfered greatness, from tha head to the throat or the legs,placing the in ­ t e l l e c t in a trill, or a pirouette, instead of au oratorical flash or a bolt o f logic. The reason o f this is they have nothing else to talk about or rather are permitted to talk of nothing else. Q sick spirited as they are, lively and impetu­ ous, the mind seeks vent in something! Po­ litics are forbidden, but you can talk o f them if you please, i f you like an Austrian jail, bread and water, with darkness, or with spiders and rats to play with. As no one fancies such, companions when he can find better,all o f p o ­ litics you can get from an Italian,is a shrug o f the shoulder, or a ‘non so,’ I dont’t know— with a tw ist of the mouth and a wicked grin, which I wonder tyrants have not made trea­ son of ere this, thopgh the Kang o f Prussia, has just taken one step toward it, by making, whistling penal in the streets o f Berlin, i cannot help sharing the wrongs o f this people, who have such fine minds thus misdirected. Fit them—educate them for our form of Gov­ ernment, and what a people they would be, with so much intellect, so much fancy, so much of a l l that characterizes the energy o f genius, added to a taste and sense of beauty, which preeminently distinguish what I have seen and heard even of the lower classes. In looking at the nation, and remembering what they have been, marking too the mere physi­ cal construction of either sex, I cannot but re­ gret, that amid the numerous emigrants from Europe to our country, there are not less from some quarters and more from this, for a sprink­ ling of such a population with ours would loos­ en with us many o f the faults o f the English character, and impart other feelings that can never distinguish the mere English race. There are many more things to write of Mi­ lan, but i f I stop thus far on the portals o f Ita­ ly when shall I get out? This, with all iU shows, is but the gateway to the entrance of what was once the mistress, and what has been, centuries after, the lamp that lit up the civilization of the world. When our father land was in barbarism, when the Gaul and the Frank were but Goth, Dante sung, and Mi­ chael Angelo painted, and carved, and built. The classic scholar s e e s little h e r e as y e t , in his thirst for antiquities, to gratify his first -burning curiosity to s e e s o m e t h i n g of Roman Ruins. Milan has been too often razeed by d e v a s t a t i n g a r m i e s t o l e a v e m u c h o t anti­ quity,yet sixteen columns of the lustrious days of the R o m a n E m p i r e , making part ot tho baths of Hercules, constructed by Maximilian, are to be seen. Some palaces of the moderns are to be seen. The Grand Hospital is a build­ ing magnificent and immense. Never did for­ tune employ the resources of art for an object more praiseworthy, which shows that charity is enthroned on this side of the Alp* as well
