When you ask a lady who told her such antisuch a

just received, but Julie was a good and sensible

dearly, and FO she said very gently to hiCmaid
" Very well. I shall be there myself !"

The forests of Tyrol and-Styria by , their 'magni
tude and number form one the distinguished lea.
lures of those countries when compared with
Switzerland. They cover the middle regions of the
Alps, and encroach more :open the verge of the
cultivated fields, which occupy tills lower Tart of
the valleys, in Switzerland. II might at first be
supposed that "thirsis vese - siiiiidfciiiiii of timber,
from their extreme remoteness and difficulty -of
access, would hardly beat any valve, to man, : and,
that trees, would be allowed to flourish
,and tot, on.,
disturbed by the..axe, on, the spot where. Nature
planted them. This is by no,rneans the case; there
many remote districts of,ipe Austrian Alps where
timber is the sole produce, where. the peoplkdraur,
their 1 übsistence entirely -limn the forest; and hu
man ingenuity has.contrivoil means by whichi the
stately stem of the Tyrolese larch, which has grown
to maturity close to the Glaciers of the Orteler Spitz,
is transported so the Arsenal of Venice or -the , port ;
of Trieste: while--thar which has flourished •nean
the fountain head of tee Balza may •be found in the-.
course of a law monthssrom the time when it has
quitted its native forests serving as a mast to some
vessel of war or merchandise on the Black. Sena.
There can be no difficutryin the transport of timber
growing on the borders of.a . navi,gable river ; but it
is a different thing when it grown at the distance of
many miles from any stream capable of floating a
log, or where the steams flow in-a direction oppo
site to that in which the wood is to be carried.

of .fides, (called in Austria Riesen.) which-are in
fact semi-circulai troughs rotated of six or eight fir
trees, placed side by side, and smoothed by strip
ping off the bark. These sometimes extend many
miles. They are so constructed is to preserve a
gradual descent—are not always straight, but are
made to curve round the shoulders of the mountain
