In drinking - 0 the beauty'
Of the scene that now So gleams,

And ever thus rye wondered,

With its pearly gates, so white—

to remind usi-of an American repast: -
contrary to the 'usual style abroad of

All ihis; and the expression With

—There is a:pectiliar and almcist
unrivillid beauty and grandeur - in
the scenery of Stirling and its envi
rons, Admirably corresponding to the
lofty and- herdic associations which
attach thennielves so aliundantly , to
its loealities, as ;connected with the
former history of Scotland, her cham

The lofty Castle Hill—or rather
Bock of Stirlin g -is a position of im
mense strength - 250 - feet in height;
and reminding one strongly of Que
bec, ' the Gibraltar bf Ameries..-It
finds its counterpart in the "Abbey

surmounted by au imposing moan
moat erected in -honor to. Sir William
Wallace. Similar also is' - the n gritted

the Castle walls, is a rocky precipice:_

construction of a,mirable walks and

by the foliage of grand old trees.

grim, gray Old-Cathedritt which once

we saw the old pulpit from which he

of James VI. ~
Between the old church and the
castle are the Cemetery Grounds—of
considerable extent with well liming

shades and ancient tombs, with mon

of ear ly martyrs and reformers. The

presenting a remarkable diversity of
dates. Some parts, including the an

by James V., and the ehapeljay James

the undertaking was perhaps a suc

&concerned, it is certain that the royale
'pupil never attained to anyremarka
ble degree of sturdy manliness or
sound sense: o enjoying, however, a
reputation, for - shrewdness in one soli
tary instance—that of ,his detecting
the famous " Gunpowder Plot." We
did not seek to enter the rooms where,
some thiee centuries since, a mon
arch's intellect was thus developed;
altliough it is natural , to suppose that
thereby some idea might be ha d . of
what is commonly regarded as a myth

But only some of the interior deco
rations and furniture, with the Royal
Star overhead, were saved of the orig- ,
final interior - of the main apartment,
from a disastrous fire. It is however
said to be a strictly accurate repro
duction: and we seated ourselves in
the veritable antique chair once oc
'eupied by the Royal assassin; whose
vietimsomsPe-cted of treasonable de
signs, had trusted himself in the pres
ence of his liege lord, rinder - a pledge
of personal security.. The smaller
adjetningToom, frbm the window of
which the body of the unfortunate
Earl was thrown, overlooks westward
elittle garden, still'known as that of
Mary Queen of Scots, Who for smile

just within the outer battlement, With
the initials "M. R., 1516," shows
where through an aperture she had
often gazed from this lofty height up
on the magnificent landscape below
--the wide vale of Monteith enclosed
in its.franie-work of mountains. r
In consideratian of the odium still
said to attach to the name of Mon
teith, as being`that of the betrayer of
Wallace, it seems rather unaccounta
ble that the most lovely region with

be allowed to bear a title as mach in

that of Arnold.

known in Chia country. The speci
mens that 'existed were in the hands
of scientific then, or in the cabinets
of travelers, who had gathered knick

visited. -Subsequently, a sudden In-.
rove for meerschaum pipes seized
upon the people; and now there is
hardly a smoker who does not pos
sess a cherished meerschaum, the
changing complexion of which is an
object 'of greater solicitude to him
than an infant's first teeth to a
mother. Meersehaum--German for
sea-foam—is a hydrous silicate of
magnesia. It is of a soft, porntie
texture, very . light, but of varying
specific gravity, and has a greasy
feel. It is found in various plea of
Sonthern Europe, in veins of serpen
tine and tertiary deposits. It occurs
also in Asia Minor. It is easily it,
and when first removed • from The
bedais of a cheese-like consistency.
Frequently the meerschaum 'is too

plied. It is capable of receiving a

of business, or father a distinct

The finished pipes are tioaked i or

meerschaum, and are'acted upon by

pipe clay is added to the mixture. It
is said there is no' certain test for '
