Leaving Dublin on the 28th of June,
I proceeded northward along the
coast, by railway to Belfast—distance
112 miles. The most important
towns along the route are Drogheda;
Dundalk, Newry and Lisburn.
At Drogheda, (pronounced Droh
ady) we crossed by a lofty bridge
the river of the Boyne, upon whose
lands not far hence the famouS "Bat
tle of the Boyne" was fought in 1690,
between the forces of King James 11,
and those of his son-in-law, William,
Prince, of Orange. Its result • estab
lished the final supremacy of Prot
estantism throughout the British
..Tames seems to have dis
played but little courage on tie oc
casion, as he fled from the field be
fore' the battle was fully decided--
re,achnig Dublin in a few hours, and
next day continuing his flight along
the coast to Waterford, a distance of
100 miles. At Dublin Castle he is
said to have remarked to Lady Tyr
connel, " Your countrymen, madam,
it must be acknowledged, can run
very fast!" With prompt Irish wit,
she replied :
" In this, as in other respects, your
Majesty excels them, for you have
won the race!"
The country along our route, tho'
in some parts fine, seemed in others
rough ~ and rocky, its natural advan
tages ,itpori the whole inferior to
southern Ireland r although with the
resources 'and avails of industry
more liberally afforded to tEe great
mass of its inhabitants. We began
to see tokens of the foundations of
its prosperity in the extensive mills
and bleacheries of linen, great ,
quantities of this fabric were sprenl
out upon the meadows "-Of the
linen trade, Belfast (with about
half the population of Dublin, bat on
the increase,) is the great ' centre,
although nearly all the, towns and
cities of the North participate in the
business to a greater or less degree.
To this, some attribute the great
comparative degree of thrift and
prosperity in the north of Ireland;
others meantime to the prevalence
of the Protestant religion, and third
ly it is claimed to be owing to the
extensive infusion of the Scottish
element in its popidation. No doubt
these causes are all connected each
with the other, as well ad with the
main result. A rich harvest was
reaped hero during our American
rebellion, from the great demand for
linen fabrics, . occasioned by the fail
ure of the supply of cotton goods.
Next to Dublin, Belfast is consid
ered the finest city of Ireland.. ' It
stands upon a river flowing from
Lough Neagh (about 20 miles distant,
and the largest lake of Ireland) into
the Lough or Bay of Belfast. The
streets are generally wide and well
paved, and the general style of the
residences good—though its public
buildings are inferior in style and
magnificence to those of the metrop
It is stated that the first-Bible pub
lished in Ireland was printed at Bel
fast inl794—no printing press hav
ing been brought into the country
until about the year 1G96; Ireland
being behind even Russia in thin,re
spent. -
The territory on which the ?city.
Stands is that of the llacQuis or Don-

most extensive of the. Linen: Mills,
with a goide who explained -to me
the various interesting processes . by
which the flax. is converted into a
great variety of fabrics, useful' and
ornamental. The Meet linen and
damasks are however only made by
hand: many of the' first families of
Europe having their coats of arms
drawn and woven in their napkins,
tablecloths,ika. , The extent of the
manufacture' may be inferred from
the fact that one establiehnient alone
(that of the Idesaw: Mulhollan) is
said to give employment, directly or
indirectly, to 25,000 persons. The
cotton manufacturers of Belfast ate
at the same time by. no means incon
kiderable. . -
By way of Carrickfergus and Cole
raine, I proceeded ,74 miles, north
westwardly to the town :of Poxtinsh,
in the county of Arrnasu'' on the
northern coast. A high promontmy
of rock,_ with a tolerably smooth,snr
facOnd affording a fine promenade
and Seaview,liere extends.: into The
waters, , toirarda- . .the rough r rooky
reefs known _as' the. SLerry /Ands,
presenting a barrier -. against which
the: wild - surges of the Northern
Ocean Icontimmily dash. A jannting
car was in readiness here to tummy
passengers from the railway station
six miles to the ,
by an interesting route, mostly along
the cliffs of the seashore, where our
party, mostly' Englishnien, arrived
about noon. After taking a hearty
lunch at the Causeway Hotel, (a fine-
Ifsituated and well-kept house) We
proceeded With a guide, by a steep
descent frcim.the lofty proinontOrY to
the foot of the majestic and peculiar
precipices . which constitute the great
" jumping off place " of northern
At the water's edge we embarked
in a boat manned by two or three
sturdy oarsmen, for the purpose of
exploring some •of the grand caverns
and recesses •Which for countless
years, the billoWs have been '-scoop
ing out from this tremendous wall of
rock. From the • greatest elevation
of these headlands (some 400 feet_
directly at the seashore)' is a regu
larly descending grade inland: it is
consequently a ready , inference that
the pillared rocks that line the coast
become of less elevation, as by slow'
but unceasing inroads the ocean ad
vances—with recesses and bays a
thousand feet or more in some pla
ces between the projecting, promon
tories;--through which in their turn,
many a fantastic and magnificent
archway is laterally bored by the,nig
ing tide. , '
:Dyer's "
The, grandest of these ocean timpi
theatres is known of coarse as .The
Giants—being nearly a perfect semi
circle of great extent, and more
beautiful and impressive in its fea
tures, it is eftid, than those of Rome.
Certain it is no human productions
can be thought to - rival those of
Man's Creator; especially when
here, the latter assume the appear
ance of systematic construction in
detail. The summit slopes down
ward to the tops of a vast circular
range of regular columns, 80 feet in
perpendicular height—amid which is
to be seen a group of pillars, known
as the Giant's Organ, (their arrange
ment corresponding in a conSidera
ble degree to that of the organ pipes
of some 'grand Cathedral) from
which, as one surveys it, he might
almost imagine the deep bass of the
ocean wave, here forever sounding.
To proceed. A bench next ensues,
which Hibernian imagination con
ceives to have been the seat of the
giant guests of Fin McCord:lit the
grand feats and high councils of the
unknown times. Succeeding this,
another range of pillars descends for
about 60 feet to the slope of debris
at the water's edge—along which
are to be seen vast -piles of globular
scoriae and conglomerate.
Upon the lofty head of Pleaskin .
Promontory stand the " Chimney
2ops"—insolated columns whose
companions long since haVe fal
len—themselves still standin,gsolita
ry and alone, forty-five ;feet in
height: and long must they' so have
stood, if we attach credit ta the cur

them—led by their appearance. to
suppose that they were the turrets
of Dunluce Castle, some miles distant
along the coast--mid that one of
these vessels was wrecked here by
an inclintions approach. It may
however well be doubted if any por
tion of that famous invading fleet
ever advanced so far northward.
'As our little boat with cautions
skill is propelled amid the white
breakers and rocky reef of this dan
gerous coast, the best possible view
is obtained of this sublime coask
scenery. Occasionally we passed be
neath -*the arched portals of some
ocean cavern, pknetrating far within,
where the rising billow lifted our

that by an• approximate reckoning,

No description can convey any ad- I

of the -scene--.-either in ita
general effect or in the observation
of its details. Nor can the mind of
the beholder divest itself of the idea
of vast and ingenious artificial work
manship—a ipystetions and most
wonderful combination of immense
effort, skill and persevereance. -If
we could believe - in accordance with
the traditions of the country, that it
were an artificial; instead of um/era/
work, how diminished and trivial In
comparison, would appear any or all
of the hoisted productions of human

effort, the hand of , Nature, acting
under the laws of anAlmighty Arch

thrown out this grand and most cu

powers, for the wonder and admira
tion of the perplexed human intel
lect. Is it not at the same time reflect how much the mind
is disposed to lessen its admiration
of Nature's doings—the moment it
recognizes the action ofa general law?

dertake to jot do*n some iotes:of
the scenes we have viewed in that
section. _ . .
Leaving Towanda on Saturday
morning we took . :passage on the
noteworthy L.V.R.R. cars to IValier
ly, where we changed for the E.R.W.
Proceeding to Corning we landed
'there and having some time to wait
for our conveyance, we 'deemed it
expedient to regale' ourselves with a
substantial dinner. .Whereupon we
made ouidebut .at the "Dickinson
House," where we found what we
wanted got up in a nice tidy style,
and supplied by obliging waiters; so
We think the "Dickinson " •is the
stopping place in Corning.
About an hour after dinner we
again took the cars on the- Ruffalo
Division of the Erie Rail Way. About
o'cjockp.m . . we arrived at Livonia
station, Whence we
.staged towards
'Livonia Centre, to our destination.
On SabbathiVraitied so hard we
did hot venture out. On Monday.
We took a trip to Rochester,. There
we took , dinner at the "Clintoni
House," ‘then went out to .:see the
wonders of the city. But 'findihg .
our time more limited than .we an-:
ticipated, we concluded the_ most
speedy way to "do" Bothester was
to take n.,bird's-eye view of it from
the Oonri House dome, which is 165
feet high. We enjoyed a treat too,
though not so good as if it had been.
a clear day, for tholog obseured.the
very outskirts of the city, and also
of the lake, which can readily be
seen when clear. We were impressed,
with the fact that Rochester is indeed
a beautiful as well as a large City.
The kite census returirshowiits pop
ulation 62,400.
. -
-We now descended Once more to
terra firm and crossed over the way
to observe the new Powers 'Block,
which is l built entirely of iron, brick
and brown stone. The latter is-bro't
from Ohio—ii beintifully carted and
the design of 'the block is certainly
handsome—thus creating a mania

We then left the city_tind 'made our
war back to the Genesee country;
passing through the far-famed Gen
esee Valley. We were charmed with
the fine looking Rochester Ntirsrries,
of wide renown—prosperous looking
'farms, stock, Ac., of that garden of
New York. The late drought - has
not affected that section, and such
thrifty looking grain fields and apple
orchards! it • was never before my
fortune ter enjcry. Apples are abun
dant and offering quite low—Bitch
lower than with us. • .
The next day, through the kind- -
ness of friends, we had an opportani
ty of visiting the famous burning oil
well. This well is situated - about 10
or 11 miles from the villa g e of Lima,
and about 28 miles froM Rochester.
Entering a large - natural basin we
find in its centre an iron tuba shoot
ing upward about 12 feet, and from
the top of this tube proceedS a per
petual name (if I, may so.apeak)
brightly flushing, and roaring so
loudly • that it may ho heard . at'
- considerable distance. ThiS roaring
is caused by the Louth of the tube
being partially closed with an iron
plate. One of our party .:knocked
this off, and though the roaring
ceased the flame burst forth with re
doubled fury.
This well which is sunk - about 40,0
feet, has been burning for. at least
five years. A party 'were boring for
oil and hadroached the abo-vo men
tioned depth, when some one in us
ing lighted matches dropped one iii
the well when the gas escaping from
it ignited, burning up the -derrick'
and all the wood within Its reach,.
and has continued to burn ever Eince,
a source of wonder and awe to . all be
holders. There is , a rude dance
house, &e., erected ..near it, where
parties have assembled probably to
view , the flame by night,. when it
must be reag,nificent.
One of our old townsmen, Mr. E.
N. Frisbie, in company with some
others have conceived the -idea of
carrying the gas from this well into
Rochester. It yet remains to be
seen whether this is practicable.
Next day , we vested 'Hem:dock
Lake, whichabout 25 or 30 miles
from - Rochester. This lake.: though
small, being - but seven miles
and abgut one wide, appeared - - very
beautiffl to one who had neier be
fore seen one. Here is a largi) board,
ing house which often acconunodates
40 and 50 boarders who come to en
joy the delightful scenery,fudaing, &c.
There are also .some dwellings built
Annum- in Advan'6o3,
upon its, shores *which are occupied
by families • during , the, summer
months. •
Here workmen were busy com

'After enjoying this sight we made
our way back and bent our course in
the opposite direction to Lake -Cone

a much more pleasing scene. It
seems more peaceful and the shores
are lined witli thriving looking farms
and villages. Taking a short ride
out upon its waters, we proceeded to

here we could see laakeiill at its *feet
-and also the belt of timbers growing
at its bead. "This lake is about nine
miles long,' After enjoying this we
were compelled to . forego further
sight-seeing; and the nest:day, Thurs
day, we retraced our way to this, our
headquarters, to find that a number
changes had taken place during our
absence, Among- them we were

Justice Chase , and the late Se cretary
or War, Edwin, Di. Stanton.
- A short time after the cleith of
Edwin M. Stanton,'Hen.
son published a sketch of that great
man in the Atlantic Monthly, in which
he incidentally referred to the resig
nation of Secretary Cameron,and
the appointment of Mr. S tanton
through the advice of. Mr, Cameron.
Black, answered this . in the_ -June
number of the :Galaxy, and denied
with - the dogmatism for which he is
notorious, that Cameron
_did resign:
He charged that he. was removed.
That he had no Choice; in the matter,.
And that ho had nothing to do with
naming Stanton as his successor.
•Mr. Wilson rejoins in the October
number of the• Atlantic, and - disposes .
of Black's assertions in the following'
extracts, taken from - his paper in'that
Magazine. He says: -
.“ In my. article I incidentally re
ferred:to what I had understood - to
be the fact, that Mr. Canwron.- had
proposed to resign his commission as
Secretary'Of War, provided asucccsdor
could be appointed not" unfriendly to
him, and -that he had suggested Mr.
Stanton. -Mr. Black avers that this
was not so, that Mr. Cameron ditl
not resign, was in fact renio'ved, and
had no part in 'naming a successor': •
I am content to rest the case upon -
the follewin,g testimonies. Mr. Cam
eron, in a recent note to me, writes:
"'I called on Mr. Lincoln,. and '
suggested Edwin M. Stanton to him
as my successor. He hesitated; bte.
after listening to me for' a time,' lit ,
yielded, and sent me to offer the
place of Secretary of War to him,
and added: ‘.Tell hint, Cameron, if
he accepts, I will send his. nomina-.
tion as Secretary, and yours UT
ister, to the. Senate to
"Senator Chandler, in a recent
note, writes: "' Before Cameron re-
signed; he invited me to breakfast at
his house to meet Edwin M. Stanton,
whom I had then never met, and .
told me that the gentleman I was to
meet had been, nominated for :Secre
tary of War, at his request. At the
bereakfast, the fact of, Cameron's hav
ing recommended Mr. Stanton als his
successor, was not only mentioned,
but the meeting was expressly for tht
puipose,of enablinisome one tin whose
friendship Mr. Cameron placed reli
ance to judge of the, wisdom of . his
curse bed actual contact with the com
ing Secretany.
"This statement of Mr. Chandler,
concerning the ; meeting at the house
of Mr. Cameron, is corroborated by
the following extract _from a - later
addressed to me by Mr. Wade:
recollect," he says, " very well, that
Mr. Cameron made Amown. to Mr.
Chandler and - myself his determina
tion to resign his position as Secritary
of War, and recommend: to Mr. Lin k
coin Mr. Stanton as his successor in.
that department. From my long ac
quaintance with Mr. Stanton, and.
my confidence in his ability, integri-' ,
ty,. and fitness for the ,plap, as well
as his determined anti-ala Very prin
ciples, I was much pleased with the
suggestion, as was Mr. 'Chandler.
Shortly after this we, were invited to
breakfast' at Mr. Cameron's, to meet-
Mr. Stanton, at which meeting Mr..
; Cameron mentioned to Mr. Stanton
the resolution he had cifine to, and
that gentleman reluctantly gave us
to understand that, if he was offered
the appointment, he would accept.' ,
"From - Senator Ramsey I- have .
received a note, in which he says:
desire to relate a circumstance which
carries with it the best attainable
evidence of the truth of your state
ment—the words of Mr. Stanton him
self. I mot Senator Cameron and
Mr. Stanton at Mr. Chandler's house
in Washington, during tht) inipeach
ment cif President Johnson. In con.,
- versation, Mr. Stanton, in referring
to the ,unpleasant and delicate situa
tion in which he was placed, in seem
ing to cling -to an office which the
President was determined to drive
him froth, said, half playfully, point
ing to Gen. Cameron, This gentle
man is the man who has brought all
this trouble upon nie, by recommend
ing me to Mr. Liliccln for Secret( iry of
War,a7zd then urging me to-accept the
place.' . .1
"Chief 'Justice- Chase, in a letter
written to Mr. Cameron, from which
lam permitted to (rote., is-still more
explicit and conclusive =Alio point
at lth3tle : Senator Wilson is quite
right in his statement that you re
signed the post of Secretary of War;
and that you indicated Mr. Stanton
as your successor. I supposed my
self at the time, and still suppose,
that I was well:informed as to the
circumstances. Some time before you
resigned, you expressed to me your
preference for. the position .of
ter to St. Petersburg, endl convers
ed with Mr. Lincoln on the subject
under your sanction. No ; intimation
of a thought on Mr. LinObln's . part
that the resignation of the one post,
and the acceptance of the other, were
not purely voluntary acts on your part,
was received by me. , NOr havp . l now
any belief that it 'was not 'at the
time wholly at your - optifin to remain
in the Cabinet, or to,kave it for the
honorable and. iniportant position
offered to you."
