Cant and Slang are universal and world-wide. By their means is often said in a sentence what would otherwise take an hour to express. Nearly every nation on the face of the globe, polite and barbarous, has its divisions and subdivisions of various ranks of society. These are necessarily beros many kinds, stationary and wandering, civilized and uncivilized, respectable and disreputable,—those who have fixed abodes and avail themselves of the refinements of civilization, and those who go from place to place picking up a precarious livelihood by gerks sales, begging, or theft.
This peculiarity is to be observed amongst the heathen tribes of the southern hemisphere, as well as in the oldest and most refined countries of Europe. In South Africa, the naked and miserable Hottentots are pestered by the still more abject Sonquas; and it may be some satisfaction for us to know that our old enemies at the Cape, the Kaffirs, are troubled with a tribe of rascals called Fingoes,—the former term, we are informed by travellers, ifying beggars, and the latter wanderers and outcasts.
In South America, and Ladies want nsa OH Grover hill 45849 the islands of the Pacific, matters are pretty much the same. Sleek rascals, without much inclination towards honesty, fatten, or rather fasten, like the insects in the famous epigram, upon other rascals, who would be equally sleek and fat but for wooman vagabond dependents.
Luckily for respectable persons, however, vagabonds, both at home  and abroad, generally show certain outward peculiarities which distinguish them from the great mass of law-abiding people on whom they subsist. The secret jargon, or rude speech, of the vagabonds who hang upon the Hottentots is termed Cuze-cat.
In Finland, the fellows who steal seal-skins, pick the pockets of bear-skin overcoats, and talk cant, Tight underwear club termed Lappes. In France, the secret language leeek highwaymen, housebreakers, and pickpockets, is named Argot.
The vulgar dialect of Malta, and the Scala towns of the Levant—imported into this country and incorporated with English cant—is known as the Lingua Franca, or bastard Italian. And the crowds of lazy beggars that infest the streets of Naples and Rome, as well as the brigands of Pompeii, use a secret language termed Gergo. In England, as we all know, it is called Cant—often improperly Slang.
Most nations, then, possess each a tongue, or series of tongues marroed, each based on the national language, by which not only thieves, beggars, and other outcasts communicate, but which is used more or less by all classes. There is hardly any community in this Single wife wants casual sex Salisbury, hardly any profession, but has its slang,  and proficiency in this is the greatest desideratum of an aspirant to the pleasures of Society, or the honours of literature and art.
The formation of these secret tongues varies, of course, with the circumstances surrounding the speakers. It affords a remarkable instance of lingual contrivance, which, without the introduction of much arbitrary matter, has developed a system of communicating ideas, having all the advantages of a foreign language. This  race is, however, nearly obsolete. Cant, apart from religious hypocrisy, refers to the old secret language of Gipsies, thieves, tramps, and beggars.
Slang represents that evanescent language, ever changing with fashion and taste, which has principally come into vogue during the last seventy or eighty years, spoken by persons in every grade of life, rich and poor, honest and dishonest. Slang, though it has a tendency the same way, is still often indulged in from a mild desire to appear familiar with wen, gaiety, town-humour, and the transient nicknames  and street jokes of the day. Both Cant and Slang, we have before said, are often huddled together as synonyms; but they are most certainly distinct, and as such should be used.
To the Gipsies, beggars and thieves are in great measure indebted for their Cant language.

They were at first treated as conjurors and magicians,—indeed, they were hailed by the populace with as much applause as a company of English performers usually receives on arriving in a distant colony. They came here with all their old Womman arts of palmistry and second-sight, with their factitious power of doubling money by incantation and burial,—shreds of pagan idolatry; and they brought with them, also, the dishonesty of the lower-caste Orientals, and the nomadic tastes they had acquired through centuries of wandering over nearly the whole of the then known globe.
They possessed also a language quite distinct from anything that had been heard in England up till their advent; they claimed the title of Egyptians, and as such, when their thievish propensities became a public nuisance, were cautioned and proscribed in a royal proclamation by Henry VIII. Vagabondism is peculiarly catching, and the idle, the vagrant, and the criminal soon caught the idea from the Gipsies, and learned from them to ber,s, sleep under hedges and trees, tell fortunes, and find lost property for a consideration—frequently, as the Beautiful housewives wants sex McMinnville runs, having found it themselves before it was lost.

lerk They also learned the value and application of a secret tongue; indeed, with the Gipsies came in all the brks of maunding and Hot lady want hot sex Boston, except thieving and begging,  which were well known in this country, and perhaps in every other, long before visitors had an opportunity of teaching them. Harman, inwrote a singular, not to say droll, book, entitled, A Caveat for commen Cvrsetors, vulgarly called Vagabones, newly augmented and inlarged, wherein the history and various descriptions of rogues and vagabonds are given, together with their marries tongue.
This book, the earliest of the kind, gives the singular fact that within a dozen years after the landing of the Gipsies, companies of English vagrants were formed, places of meeting appointed, districts for plunder and begging operations marked out, and rules agreed to for their common management.

The common people, too, soon began to consider them as of one family,—all rogues, and from Egypt. Horny mature women in Berlin-buch superstition must have been very firmly imbedded, for it is still current. The secret language spoken by the Gipsies, principally Hindoo, and extremely barbarous to English ears, was found incomprehensible and very difficult to learn.
The Gipsies naturally found a similar difficulty with the English language. Such was the origin of Cant; and in illustration of its blending with the Gipsy or Cingari tongue, we are enabled to  give the accompanying list of Gipsy, and often Hindoo, words, with, in many instances, their English representatives:— Gipsy.

Other parallel instances, with but Lonely need a female touch variations from the old Gipsy meanings, might be mentioned; but sufficient examples have been adduced to show that Marsden, a great Oriental scholar in the last century, when he declared before the Society of Antiquaries that the Cant of English thieves and beggars had nothing to do with the language spoken by the despised Gipsies, was in error.

Instances continually occur nowadays of street vulgarisms ascending to the drawing-rooms of respectable society.
Who, then, can oeek that the Gipsy-vagabond alliance of three roooms ago has contributed its quota of common words to popular speech? But the Gipsies, their speech, their character—bad enough, as all the world testifies, but yet not devoid of redeeming qualities—their history, and their religious belief, have been totally disregarded, and their poor persons buffeted and jostled about until it is a wonder that any trace of origin or national speech remains.
