THFL TRUE GENTLEMAN. Cardinal Newman thus defines the true gentfo- man: He carefully avoids whatever may cause a Jar or a jolt in the minds of those with whom he 811 CMt; all clashing of opinion, all collision of feeling, all restraint, or suspicion, or gloom, or resentment; his great concern being to make everyone at their ease and at home. He has his •yes on all his company; he is tender towards the bashful, gentle towards the distant, and merciful towards the absurd; he can recollect to whom he is speaking; he guards against un- reasonable allusions, or topics which may irri. tatn; he is seldom prominent in conversation, and never wearisome. He makes light of favours while he does them, and seems to be receiving when he is conferring. He never speaks of him- self except when compelled, never defends hinc eelf by a mere retort, he has no ears for slandei Of gossip, iq scrupulous in imputing motives to those who interfere with them, and interprets everything for the best. He has too much good sense to be affronted at insults, too well employed to remember injuries, too indolent to bear malice. He is patient, forbearing, and re- signed on philosophical principles; he submits to tain, because it is inevitable, to bereavement, neoanse it is irreparable, to death beoauee it it Ui destiny.
