"Any other path , than your own,b tke path
of fate. Keep un your own track, then."
The case is the same in traveling
as in other " walks of life "—he who
follows his own fancies and prefer
ences may eoon part with his com
Half-a-dozen Americans, for in
stance, cross the -ocean together, with
a view of vastly enjoying each other's
society in travel abroad. Such a num
ber is milkiest to fill an ordinary Eu
ropean railway carriage, and they are
thus precluded from intercourse with
fellow travelers belonging to the coun
try they are traversing, and confined
to their own guesses, reckonings and
conclusions in regard to what they
chance to observe along the } way.
They will not always'be able to ob
tain accommodations at the same he
tel—and frequently when such is the
case, the style and convenience of the
rooms obtainable will vary to a con
siderable extent ; to whom the choice
shall be assigned will often be an
awkward question. On "looking up
the lions ' of any locality, one wishes
to see this thing--another,lhat ; one
would tarry a while at some point
where another finds nothing to en
joy ; a part of the company are dis
posed to be prompt in their move
ments, while others are always be
hirid time--La circumstance sadly try
ing to any !ordinary amount of hu
man patience. After boring and be
ing bored awhile by a thoasand such
tuiforeseen circumstances and vary
the case often hap
pens that they finally separate on the
way—regretting only that they had
not done so before. In short, for the
most part, the only merit of travel
in parties exceeding two or three in
number, is the rare opportunity finis
afforded for the practice of self denial.
There are, in 'fact, few situations
where one is more induced to exclaim,
"Save me from my friends!"
The society of old acquaintances is
pleasant, under favorable conditions;
but it is not for this ordinarily that
one visits foreign countries. " The
proper study of mankind is man "
and he who would advance therein
must needs take np a new volume oc
casionally—even if for awhile he lays
aside the old one, perhaps already
learned by heart. If in traveling,
one finds his own tastes, preferences
and convictions materially interfered
with by acquaintances 'whether of a
day or of years, his best course is to
" cut loose " at once. Without too
delicate an apprehension of doing
violence to the feelings of others, nine
times out of ten it may be a relief to
all parties concerned. That profound
experimental philosopher, Cacaos, dis
covered but faint traces of enjoyment
in solitude : yet is even Solitude pre
ferable to Boredom.
Similar, indeed, is the situation to
that described by Holmes, of two
" friendly •people " meeting upon •the
"Each looks quite radiant, seems extremely
Their meeting so was such a piece of luck
Each thinks the other thinks he's greatly pleas'd

—Human nature is the same every
where • and the more one sees of
everywhere the more is he convinced
of the fact. Do not, therefore, imag
ine that your flagging spirits can be
borne up only on the tide of old as
sociations; strike out boldly but dis
creetly, even in untried waters, and
yon are sure to.swim.
While my American friends pro
ceeded to Killaniey by railway, I
chose for my own part a slower and
more primitive method, as affording
better opportunities for observation.
What 1 cross the ocean to be whirled
through the country by night, and by
railway? But for the fearful extra
hazard, one might as well be taking
a night ride on our own "New York
and Erie "—so I'll none of it.
In the attempt to procure my trunk
forwarded to Liverpool, the nearest
port in England, two hour's time and
sundry coach and porter hire were
expended in order to effect the ob
ject, even with tha friendly aid and
counsel of a clerk at the " Victoria ;"
no practical idea, strange to ,say, ex
isting here of the convenience either
of our system of railway checks or
'that of express lines.
Next morning I was on my way to
wards the Lakes .of Killarney in the
southwest of Ireland—proceeding, as
far as Macroom by railway. The dis
tance is short, but may afford oppor
tunity for a few remarks connected
with the means of our movement.
Ireland has at this time over twen
ty different lines' of railroad, well
built and well regulated. Each coach
or division of the better classes is cal
culated for about six persons, as is
the case' on most foreign railways.
Throughout the lines of Great Bri
tain there are three classes of passen
ger cans, the third and cheapest car

bound by Government to afford trim.

third class, the style of .accommoda

and the greater number of passen-

and intelligent class
the inhabitants of,the country are
there to be met ith. Some com
panies, with s view of obtaining more
passengers for their first-class care,
have tried the experiment of render
ing the second class little if any bet
ter than the third, but abandoned the
plan on finding that the greaterntun
ber thereupon fell back into the third,
instead of taking theft,* class, which
are often empty, being from forty to
fifty per cent. more expensive in fare
than the second. Without any dis
play of the fanciful decorations of our
American railway cars, the first-class
carriages in Europe are rather luxu
rious, though the extreme softness of
their cushioned seats zany be found
somewhat uricomfortable in warm
weather. The three classes of rail
way carriages seem to be indiscrimi
nately mixed up . as regards their po
siti6n iij_the train. While one of the
first class may perhaps be next the
tenderand engine, others, of the sec
ond-and third, will be, found far in
—They say abroad that "none but
fools and princes take the first-class

included in one or the other of these
"grand divisions " of the human fam

to the list—patronizing, as they do,
for the most part abroad, first-class
railway carriages and " crack ha"
,The principal, and frequently the
only, advantage of a number one;
ticket, consists in the fact that it car
riefi with it a greater degree of defer
ence and attention from the employes
of the road—as illustrated by Gough's
lecture on English life and manners,
in describing the varying demeanor
of the conductor (or guard, as he is
there called,) in collecting his fares.
On the first class, for instance, look
ing in deferentially with a low smil
ing bow, and a touch of the cap, he
addresses the inmates with—" If you
please, gentlemen,• allow me to trou
ble you for your tickets," with anoth
er bow and probably an expression
of thanks when his polite petition is
responded to. In the second class,
without any superfluity of politeness,
be merely says, "Please hand. me
your tickets," and arriving at the
third, he roars out " Timms! come,
hurry up here!" thus terminating at
once his rounds and his civility.
The classified isolation of railway
carriages abroad is undoubtedly ow
ing to a tendency on the part of the
" upper tier" of society to a privi
leged exclusiveness. It has its mer
its in some respects, but also many
evident disadvantages and inconven
iences as compared with our own
railway arrangements. At the same
time it will probably be adhered to,
with similar usages, in Great Britain
and on the Continent, so long as the
present system of caste prevails there.
Railway phraseology differs. Our
term " depot " is hardly known in
connexion with railroads, but in
France, and Great Britain is render

The jaunting car is calculated to ac
commodate from two to ten passen
gers, who sit facing outward on either
side, dos a dos, their feet resting upon
a low hinged shelf; that may be fold
ed up on the seat when unoccupied.
The driver has his place forward and
above ; behind him and between the
passengers' seats is the convenient
receptacle for baggage : overcoat, um
brella, bandbox or bundle being thus
within .ready access at any moment.
The arrangement also affords easy
passage to or from the ground—so
easy, in fact, that it would be quite
unsafe for the traveler to fall asleep
along the way,. unless strapped fast
to the vehicle. Had the sons of Ja
cob gone down into Egypt in jaunt
ing cars, the patriarch's parting in
junction would have been doubly ap
propriate. And this affords an ad
ditional inducement, if necessary, to
the traveler for keeping his eyes open
to whatever interesting feature& the
country through which he is passing
may present, at least'on his side of
the car. Should, however, the oppo
site seat be filled, the necessity may
occar for his passing over the road
twice, in order to see both sideci of
the question—a circumstance calcu
lated to operate to the advantage of
the proprietor of the line, at least.

Easton is one of the few old towns

The hills, rising abruptly from the

beautiful landscape as far as eye can

farms of the State, fertile and well
Upon an eminence westward from
the town is the Cotirt House, an im-,

jail—both a pride to the town. Across
the Delaware, opposite, is the city of

four lines orailway, otherwise quite
a manufacturing town.
It was here that Penn rested on
his tour into the interior of the State,

WAssiworos, which occurred on the

are black lines one-half of an inch in

paper contains an account of the cer

describing the last tribute—three
general discharges by the infantry,
the cavalry and artillery, over the

was distinguished no less for his hos

tient, who was also a personal friend,
called on him at his office, which was
in the basement of his house, and
opened his grief. The doctor asked
many questions, and finally wrote a
prescription, which he handed to the
patient, saying : "My dear sir, if you
will take this, and be prudent in your
diet, and especially in the matter of
stimulants, you will recover. But it
.is my duty to tell you that a single
glass of wine or spirits may have se
rious consequences. Now, let us trzi
up and see Mrs. C—." Arrived in
.the parlor, the doctor walked to the
sideboard, and, taking out a--decan
ter and a couple of wine glasses, he
said : " Join me in a glass of wine."
Why," exclaimed the horrified
guest, "you just now said It would
kill me!" "Oh,"' rejoined the doe
tor, waving his hand, "that was in
the office--this is in, the parlor."

With steady thud of thronging fret.

THE EVILS OF AMOUR FORE
The vexations that come to us from
looking down into the future are dust
rubbed off, mostly from vanity, from
pride, from avarice, from appetite,
from the various malign feelings. If
you take these thousand little frets
that thought breeds, - and. that make
you unhappy ; if you lay aside physi
cal causes, and come to mental, you
will find that most of them are sel
fish, and so are , malign. And when
a man broods anxiously, looking down
into the future, two things take place:
first, he loses the use of the cornet
instrument—of his mind—by' this
overheating; and, secondly, he brings
his mind under the influence of these
malign feelings, which seem to rise
up and take possession of that great
untrodden pasture-ground of the fu
ture, His mind is brought insidious
ly under the dominion of these things.
In a critical time "the man of the
household goes' to the window, and
lookaout, and says : " Who can tell
what those signs mean ~on the hori
zon? Who can tell what that ban
ner means? Who can tell what arm
ed host that is that is coming?"—
And thousands of men say to Fear,
" Go, sit in the window and watch
and Fear, sitting in the soul's win
dow, looking far down into the
future, says: " I see something there."
" What is it ?" says Avarice. " Loss
of money—bankruptcy—trouble is
coming !" " 0 Lord! 0 Lord 1 Trou
ble in the future. It is all trouble.
Man is born to sorrow as the sparks
fly upward. A few days, 'and full of
trouble. 0 trouble ! .trouble!" And
for days and weeks the man goes
round crying, " Trouble ! trouble !"
What is it? Money. Nothing in the
world but money. It is avarice that
has made all that fuss ebont the fu
ture—all that dust. It was because
it was not golden dust that the man
Fear still sits in the window.
"What seest 4hou?" says Vanity.
" Whisperings are abroad," says Fear.
" Men are pointing .at you—or they
will as soon as you come to a point
of observation." " 0, my good_name!"
says the man. All that I have done;
all that I have laid up—what will be
come of that? i Where is my reputa
tion going? What will become of
me when I lose it, and when folks
turn away from me ? 0, trouble,
trouble !—it is coming !" What is it?
Fear is.sitting in the Window of the
soul, and looking into the futurik find
interpreting the signs thereof to the
love of approbation in its coarsest
and lowest condition.
Fear still sits looking into the fir
titre, and Pride, coming up, says :
"What is itlhat you see ?" "I see,"
says Fear, "your castle robbed. I
'see you topple down from your emi
nence. I see you under the, base
men's feet. I see you weakened. I
see you disesteemed. I see your pow
er scattered and gone." "O, Lord !
what a world is this !" says Pride.
No, that man has not had a parti
cle of trouble. Fear sat in the win
dow and lied. And Pride cried, and
Vanity cried, and Avarice cried—and
ought to cry. Fear sat and told lies
to them all. For there was not one
of those things, probably, down there.
Did Fear see them ? Yes. But Fear
has a - kaleidoscope in its eye, and
every time it turns it takes a new
form. It is filled with broken glass,
and it gives false pictures continual
ly. Fear does not see right. It is
forever seeing wrong. And it is stim
ulated by other feelings. Pride stimu
lates it ; and Vanity stimulates it ;
and Lust stimulates it ; and Love it
self finds, sometimes, no better busi
ness than to send Fear on its bad er
rand. For Love cries at the cradle,
saying, "Oh! the child will die!" It
will; not die. It will get well. And
then you will not be ashamed that
you prophesied that it would die.
You put on mourning in advance.
" Where will my family be? Where
will all my children go ? What will
became of me ?" says Love in its low
er moods. Love without faith is as
bad as faith without love.
So Fear sits in the window to tor
ment,the lower form of all our good
feelings and all our malign feelings.
And under. such .circumstances how
can a man do anything ? He has
smoked glass before his eyes when
his feelings get before thein, and they
are in a morbid state.

Probably - not. You have the bad

Men get into a state, sometimes, in
which they rather want anxiety and
trouble. As poison becomes stimu
lants, so these corrosions and cares
not tmfrequently become almost in-
Aispensable. There are many people
who not only suffer, but 'seek suffer
ing. They look at everything on:the
If you present the bright side to
them, they do not want to see- that.
They are in a minor key, and: they
want everything to wail. They not
only are sick, but do not want to get
well. They do not want to haVe peo
ple say to them, " You look better
to-day than you did yesterday." If
one says to them, "
.I cong ratulate
you on having fewer pains , they re
sent it, and say, " I have not fewer
pains. I never suffered so much in
all my life." They begin to have :a
morbid desire for sympathy on ac
count of trouble. They are.very much
like what are called " weepirig" trees.
They have a downward tendency j .
and if you undertake to make them
straight you break them. They are
determined to be weeping-willows.
There are many people of whom it
may be said that they are .never'hap
py unless they are miserable.
Suppose everything should befal a
man that could happen to him, what
would it matter? How long would
it beliefore he would be out of reach
of suffering? Where are the fath

died the first winter along the coast
of Massachusetts ? Their trouble
was long since over. They have for

HOE YOITR OWN ROW.
There is no better way to Tllll2 a
young man than to give - him to un
derstand in early lifelhat his future
success will not depend upon his own
individual efforts. , There . are cases
which young men, who have had
such teachings, have overcome their
pernicious effects, but as compared
with the whole, these are exceptions
and not the rule. The parent, who
thoroughly impresses upon the mind
of his boy the idea that lie will be
dependent upon his own exertions--,
that the responsibility of his success
or failure rests with •himself—will
find that a good work has been
wrought, the effects of which will be
seen only when the boy enters upon
the grand struggle which is to result
in triumphant victory or lamentable
defeat. A boy thus taught feels
that he has a duty to perform—that
whilehe may have - the support and
influence of a parent to assist, still,
upon his own energies and efforts
will- depend his success. He recog
nizes, therefore, that he -ii a power
within himself, and that this knowl
edge puts a restraint upon immoral
tendencies, and prompts to habits , of
active industry and prudent econo
my. Who that has been the: archi
tect of his own fortune cannot recall
the pride of the moment when he
found himself the possessor of the
first thousand, or the proprietor of
the workshop, factory, store or office
in which the foundation of his wealth
was laid. There mayhave been hap
pier moments of his life, but none
that carried with theta more genuine
and perfect satisfaction. Parents,
teach your boys to rely upon them
selves. Teach them to stand alone
in early life. Implant in them a feel
ing-of confidence in their own ability
and their own powers, couified with
a feeling of personal responsibility,
which will steady them ,vhen they
incline -to vascillate'or waxer, and in-.
spire them with that spirit of self-de
pendence which rarely ever fails' to
win a triumph.— Iteetern MM."

was his. great ability as a raconieur,
or relater of anecdotes. One of his
great stories was the following, which
was known among his friends its "The
Two - Scn,ggitises:" An , Irishman,
who had been absent for some time
on a fishing excursion, met oniof his
friends, who enquired of him what
la& he had had. "Oh," he replied,
lo we r e a r
most illigant time tirely."

It is a common thing, iu the pres
fige;for men to exert their brain
at the expense of their body, giving
undue labor to the one and scarcely
giving enough to-the other.. Health
of mind and health of body ought to
go together, and if a man wishes to'
make the most: of -himself and his fac
ulties he should observe regular
hours, for sleep, work, recreation and
exercise, andtbe temperate in his-di
et and in all other things. HO should
treat each , day of his life as a whole
in itself, and avoid bringing' himself
into a state in which artificial stimu
lents become a necessity. But how
ruanypersons, says the PhiladelAia
Ledger, do we find following thOise
simple and.oft-repeated rules ft. As a
rule, professional men permit them
selvei to be.overtasked, for they dis
like rejecting business when it offers
itself. And the same may , be sald of
men engaged in trade and commer
cial pursuits. While business is brisk
they will do, or attempt to do, all
that is possible, without regard to
the pernicious strain upon their sys
tem which such o-erworli entails.
to this be added the perpetual anxie
ty, hurry, loss of temper, discommge
meat at loss or failure, and undue
exultation at succese,' which charac
terize the life of most business men,
together with the systeni of taking
hasty meals, and not allowing a suf
ficienttime for sleep and relaxation, , ,
one need not be surprised at the
number of piemature deaths which
daily occur: The wonder is•that it
is not greater. When a man desires
to do a' very great quantity of work
he almOst always is obliged to violate
the rules of health to accomplish it;
be has to, pay a price for being.allow
ed to do it; unless gifted with a pe
culiarly strong organization, his labor
is accomplished by its retribution.
Of course, there frequently occur
uations,in which a man must work
to.the utmost; - they have no choice;
but, on the whole, it may be affirmed
that,most of the ordinary work of the
world may be got through without
au? glaring inattention to or defiance
of the rules of health and the require
ments of society. And if each man
would try to--find out how he can
best do his own work, and not try to
do it according to the ways of others,
a great deal of useless toil and irrita
tion might he saved.
It will, perhaps, be urged that
there have been many brilliant cases
wherein the rulds of health were not
only violated but outraged, and yet
the work performed was of the very
highest order. This is undoubtedly
true of many men of extraordinary
genius, who were however, exception
al men f in every sense of the word,.
and hence their example is net to be
cited as that which ordinary persons
should follow., No one, for instance,
should do as the great Frenchmovel
iSt, Balzac, used When he was
engaged - on a novel he would - retire
wholly from the world to write with
scarcely any interruption, and with
out taking any exercise, from two
o'clock in the morning till six in the.
evening; he allowed himself six hours'
sleep, and lived entirely on fruit and
vegetables: At the end of some',
months of this life, he would enter
the world -again looking like a spec
tre; tit may be true that it' was

wa the case with Schiller; while his
great rival, Goethe, did all his work
in the morning, and never wrote
afterhi - s mid-day dinner. Sir Wal
ter Seott wrote his novels mainly be
fore breakfast, while Byron compos
ed his poems mostly late at night.
The contrast between the' results
Of these two . opposite systems of la
bor-is remarkable l in these four cases:
Goethe and Scott respectively attain
ed the ages of eighty-few - and sixty
one; while Schiller died 'at forty-Six,
and Byron, at thirty-six. Moreover,
Schiller indulged in champagne, and
Byron in gin and water, and bOth
habitually wrote under the influence .
of stimulants. They shortened their
lives by their irregular mode of living
and working. ' Wouhrthey not have

ethe Worked Without stimulants; and
Scott, tho Ugh not( averse to wine, al
so was a temperate man, and fond of
field sports and exercise in the open
air. But - even he ultimately succumb
ed to, an over-tension of the brain, in
his desperate but how:liable efforts
to pay off the debts for which he
considered himself responsible. Had
it not. been for this unnatural brain
work he might havelived many years
longer. Southey, though a diligent
student and constant worker, would
never, under any circumstances, do

WHENCE CONE METSONITEIL
From a memoir now in course of
pOlication in Cosmos, we ; learn that -
with regard to nuotecritis (stenos
fallen from the sky), science has late- •
ly made a considerable step. • In ex
amining a' mass of meteoric. iron - 4
found in tbo Cordillera of,
11. Stanislas Aide-.
naturalists of Geology at the liftuse
um of Natural flistory iniParis, has
discovered evidenees.of an unexpeet
ed relationship between this iron and
two meteorites fallen at a great dis
tanCe from Chili, viz., amass of. iron
found at Caine (Alper. Maritimes,)
and a stone whiclifell at Setif, (Al-
geris) June 9; 1867. The meteorite
of Deem is s mixture of thise two
rocks; it is composed of iron which
is identical with that of CaMe. inject
ed in a state of fusion into • a stone
identical with that of Setif. The
iron of Deem is thus evidently an
eruptive rock, and it is the . first
hitherto observed among meteorites.
Besides This, it is demonstrated that
the iron of the type of Caille, and the
stone of the type of Setif, have been
in mutual connection of stratification
upon an unknown globe, and it is the
first time that such a connection has
been demonstrated. M. 'Eltanislaa
Meunier has made the , pregnant re
mark that the-meteorites which ar- -
tiie in these days Upon the earth are
not of the same mineralogical nature
as thpse which fell in past ages. For
merly iron fell, now stones fall. In
the last one hundred and eighteen
years •here hdie been in Europe but
three falls of iron, whereas there have
been - annually, on an average, three
falls of stones. The rester number
of iron meteorites which exist in our
collection—land they are numerous—
have fallen on -the earth at undeter-
mined epochs; all the meteoric dunes
are of comparatively repent date.
Perhaps even we are justified in say
ing that stones of a new kind are be
ginning to arrive, for falls of carbo
nacebus meteorites were unknown
before-the year 1803, and four have
been_observed since then.- From this
assemblage of facts, M. fitanislas • '-
Meunier concludes that meteorites
are the fragments of one or more
heavenly bodies,:which, at a period
relatively recent' (for-these wat ts . are
never found except in superficial
strata,) revolved round the earth, or
perhaps round the moon. Having,
in the course of ages, finished bylos
ing their own heat, and become pen
etrated by the cold of space, they
have arrived, much sooner than! the
moon, by reason of their inferior vol
ume, at the last term of the molecu- .
