1 —Cownn.
In the early morning, as I passed
along the beach at Margate, my at
tention was attracted' by a number of
queer-looking carts ranged along the
sands. On each psir of wheels stood
a little house of a single room, some
what similar to the contrivanc,es cal
culated alikcifor travel and encamp
ment, which I had before seen in use
among the Gipsies of England The
purpose 'of these carts at the sea
shore was, however, sufficiently evi
dent, so that I ldid not hesitate to
charter one of, them, upon the spur
of the occasion, for a brief marine
excursion. A pony was soon attach
ed,. and I was conveyed in my "draw
ing room car'l some -twenty rode
through the briny waves, before 'a
suitable depth (Say of- four feet six)
was reached ; whereupon a halt was
called, and driver and pony returned
to shore: while I proceeded through
the seaward docir of my apartment,
to take a salt water bath;—also took
a cold,—as the morning air was brac
ing, even to chill ness. All of-which
being acconiplised, my attire was
soon resumed; a f t the opening of the
landward door as a signal, man and
horse came to the rescue, and myself
and the cart were safely restored to '
terra firma: Saph is the usual style
of sea-bathing at Margate,—save and
except, as. I bei3evolently hope, the
cold- The most that can be said of
it is that upon the whole it may be
considered an'improvement upon the
plan of the Thren Wise Men of Go
tham, who went to sea in a tub.
From the land surface of the chalk
bluffs in the immediate vicinity of
Margate, one =may descend by a
stairway into a suite of strange sub
terranean apartments, apparently ex
cavated frotn thn rock. Thomas of
these rooms, to the extent of more
than 1809 square feet, are covered
with curious and fanciful' deiices,
wrought in shell's from the sea-shore.
The father of the present occupant,
as the latter informed me,. with a
solemn "assertion of veracity, discov.
ered these apartments seam thirty
years since—by falling through into
them, or other accidental, means,—
just how, I I do not now remember.
They were then considerably 'filled
np with an acctinanlation of rubbish
and debris, on the removal Of which,
and the cleaning of the walls, the
latter presented] the same fincifttl
ornamentation as now; nothing -be
ing previously known, even by tradi
tion, of their existence or origin'.
I The rooma certainly afford a very
cosy habitation, being free from any
appearance of dampness, cool in
Summer and warm in -Winter,---al
though of coarse somewhat obscure:
to say nothing of the supposed mys
tery and antiqttity of their . origin,
they. present beyond question a curi
ous and intereating appearance to
the visitor. If of an imaginative turn
of mind, he might] indeed fancy them
to have constitat i ed, at a remote peri
od of higher sea level, the submarine
palace of some tasteful Triton or
Naiad. ,
Towanda, Pa
The summer resorts and watering
places of the British-Isles; stseni . al
most without cumber; and are often,'
like Margate, thronged to, overflow
ing; for in England, all' classes,
(down to those actually without
means),— must have their annu
al "outing," as it is termed, of
months or weeki diving the season.
The coasts of France,. the spas of
Germany, and the lakes of Switzer
land, furnish many more places of
summer residence and recreation, all
mainly supported by English people;
and from the same source is derived,
for by far its greater portion, the im
mense tide Of travel throughout Eu
rope and the East. - If any nation of
the world, for any': great portion of
the year, can be withpropriety re
ported as not at home - '
that nation, is
certainly the English: And *ere an
International Vagrant Act to' be
adopted throughotit the Eaatern con
tinent, the English race, by about
five to one, would probably furnish
subjebtaor its provisions and.periata
Vt. Yet what people prides itself
mot), strange to' say, than does the
Anglo-Saxon, upon its strong attach-.
went to the scenes, the institntion%
and the associations of Home? The
French are alike pitied - and re
proached, for having no such term as
the Saxon. word Home . in their luo
gauge: and it isl•probably forttulate
teletteb tatirg.
thit Ilmunts.
for the fame of the man who com
posed "Home, Sweet Home," that
he was not born a Frenchmm Yet
even these, their volatile Continental
neighbors, display far more attach=
mot to domestic( life than clo the
English, in that they . have less dispo
sition to seek for enjoyment abroad.
Were we to refer to the great mass of
the French-speaking communities of.
Europe, we should find a superior
and conclusive reason for home at
tachment in the fact that their honies
are their own; while in England, Ire
land and Sco tland, the actual °wads
of lands and domiciles are few in
number; the class •of small proprie
tors, so extensive upon the continent,
being in the former countries almost
unknown. The world at larks, how
ever; will certainly not be disposed
to find fault with this propensity to
travel,- among those who are able to
pay their way. Swiss, Ck4mans,
Munch and Italians, ministering in
various capacities to the real or fan
cied Wanta.of their foreign visitors,
find their account in it to such a de
gree, that were the ebb and flow of
this living current suddenly to cease,
a financial panic would soon ensue
among the shop-keepers and hotel
keepers, rai e lways and diligences,
guides, couriers, and mule-drivers of
the continent.
" Oar American Cousin," display
ing, as he does, a full share (whether
onginal or inherited) of this tenden
cy to travel, is certainly in no situa
bon to criticize it unfavorably. For
him the English traveler may be said
in a measure to pave the - - way, af
fording him countenance and com
panionship, through an identity not
only of religion and language, bat to
a considerable extent-also, of general
usages and ideas. One institution
may here be mentioned, for which
English travelers and residents
abroad must have the chief credit,
and for which the AmeriCan will oft
en experience a feeling of gratitude;
it is that of regularly established re,
ligions i services in our common 'lan
guage, at most cities and , places of
resort along the line of European
The niipual bill . of "Foreign Ex
penditures," by English absentees,
would no doubt foot up in an im
mense sum, Which it may be said,
were better devoted to improving the
conditi?n of the lower classes and
suffering poor at home, whom they
have " always with them," and in
sufficient numbers. Yet ley this ex
penditure of time and money by her
citizens abroad, the moral influence
of the nation is greatly enhanced and
extended. The` traveler will not fail
to observe that the British sovereign,
Britishlexchange and letters of cred
it are received with especial favor by
continental banleers; while the En
glish language is everywhere grow
ing in use and favor, even more than
the French: and according to the
observations of Bayard Taylor and
other eminent travelers, it bids fair
to become in time, ',the language of
the world. In connection with which
idea, who:omen estimate the vast ad
vantages of ready communication
and a consequent "good understand
ing " bet Ween all the nations of the
earth through a common language?
Truly the Curse of Babel was a
heavy one, and its removal "were a
consummation most devoutly to be
wished for?"
Embarking upon a steamer at
Margate, on my return thence to
London, I was again ,forcibly im
pressed with the utter lack of the
superior style and- accommodation
that characterize our American
steam vessels• on similar routes. The
distance from Margate to London is
some seventy-five miles, for about
one-half of which we coasted along
the southern side of the bay, display
ing-the same white cliffs which mark
the Eastern shore. A conspicuous
landmark is afforded by the lofty
double towers of a church knowu as
the Two Sisters, deriving its name, as
I was informed, from its having been
erected by two maiden sisters, in
memory of an only brother, who re
turning home from a long-.absence,
lOst his life by a fall from the cliffs
in the vicinity:. Some grains of al
lowance are however due to the sto
ries which travelers hear,—as well as
to those they sometimes tell: and
while the magnificent edifice derived
its origin from the pious liberality of
the Two Sisters, the story, no doubt,
oft told in connection of the brother's
fate, is probably without foundation.
Beyond Horne Bay, upon an arm
of - the sea near the, mouth of the
Thames, 'stands the somewhat impor
tant city of Rochester, with • its fine
Cathedral, which has been much ad
mired as a work of architecture.
—Bearing more wealth upon its
bosom than any other river of the
world, the Thames, below tondon,
is perhaps as deioid of natural beau
ty as almost any- other,—it can, in
fact, claim but little superiority, in
this respect, to a Dutch canaL Its
turbid waters meander slowly !Imo'
a flat region, abounding in what are
called " levels " and "marshes," and
have a fall , of but 376 feet in an 'en
tire course of . 215 miles. What a
contrast to the descent of the Jordan,
which is said nearly 1,000 feet
in 60 miles ! There are bat few towns
along its margin; the most import
ant points being Gravesend, Tilbury
and its fort, where Queen rlizabeth
is said to have reviewed and address
ed her troops in the days of 1 the
Spanish Armada,—Wixdsvich, with
its immense naval depots, and Green
wich, famous for its hospital and ob
For miles along our course, as we
appriiiched Woolwich, a strange
odor was strongly perceptible in the
atmosphere: on enquiry into its ori
gin, I was told that it arose from ,the
discharge of the London sewers into .
the Thames, near this point. While
certainly not of the most agreeable
description, (if at all susceptible of
'description) it may at 'the same time
be said not to be as utterly offensive
as might be - sukiosed. A connois
seur in strange smells, might well
here congratulate himself on the dis
covery of a sensation in that line en
tirely new, and wholly different from
aught that bad ever before greeted
his nostrils--even had he been with
Coleridge at Cologne. Its wide dif
fusion* may be understood, when we
consider that the discharge from the
.161 1. 4
0( Al
fifty. miles 1 of; London sewerage,
amounts to no less than 9,000,000
cubic feet each day!
A company has, however, • been
formed, with a capital of millions, for
the purpose of diverting this dis
charge, and conveying it across Es
sex, for the fertilization of a large
area of territory to be reclaimed from

Circling round the Me of Dop,ive
traversed Limehouse Beach, and far
ther on, what, is called' the Pool,
where the larger vessels which reach
London, suspend their progress, re
calving and discharging cargoes at
the Docks. Onr steamer, ' however,
continued to thread its 'way amid
barges, lighters, ands crowd of other
dark-looking craft, until a landing
was made at Waterloo Bridge, and
once more I found myself in the
streets of London,—not so much a
stranger here as on my first arrival,
although •my American, friends had
meanwhile departed homeward. In
stead of returning. 'to my former
quarters near St. Paul's, I took lodg
ings in Norfolk street, Strand,; near
Exeter Hall and Temple Bar; and,
,as I had anticipated from previous
observations, the 'wait) , proved
much more agreeable, as being more
central and within easy access of the
most interesting and attractive points
of the city,—although in fact out of
the "Oity".proper.
The Strand, in many of its fea
tures, reminds one of Broadway,
New York, although decidedly infe
rier to, the latter in elegance and ex
ten 4 its name was probably derived
froml c ts nearness to the shore of the
Thames. For the purpose of more
readily distinguishing their location,
the suffix 9f Strand is commonly ad
ded to the lesser streets 'leading into
it. Many o'k these, such as Norfolk,
Bedford, Ch dos and Essei, are
said to have derived their names from
those of the no'llemen whose court
residences were f rmerly here when
this was the aristo tic quarter and
absolutely the ', l We k End" of Lon
don. As relics of th times, just
without Temple Bar, e still stand
ing ancient edifices once upied by
Henry VIII. and his Pre ter Wol.-
sey : while , near by and still eontina
ing its former name and business, 'is
the Boar's. Head Tavern, mentioned
by Shakspeare as the favorite resort
of his hero, Falstaff. In the same
vicinity stood the theatre, wheXe
Shakspeare first appeared, it is said,',
as an actor.
Remaining yet a fortnightan Lon
don before my departure to - the con
tinent, my way of life was sufficient
ly-quiet and retired; breakfast being
the only meal I took at my lodgings,
and this served' in my rdoms. I
" dined out," and saw but little of
mine host Dickens, or of his other
guests—there being no table note.
Still everything at No. 4 Norfolk
Street seemed comfortable and home
like, and at a moderate expense.
Convent Garden Market, with its
rich and varied display of the finest
fruits and flowers, was at just ,sufft
cient distance to afford a favoritii
arid frequent walk in the early firm

A PLEASANT PLACE.—A good story
is told at the expense of a somewhat
inexperienced housekeeper in this
city who found herielf one morning
without a servant to cook or wash.
A few hours' trial convinsed her that
she must have help, and she started
out in search of a girl. After calling_
at several places without success, she
was passing one of the best residen
ces in the city,,and observed a tidy
looking woman clearing the yard.
Halting, she inouired of the woman
whether she knew of a girl that
could be hired. The answer was in
the negative: The lady had by this
time become desperate, and resolved
.to hire the woman before her, al
though she knew it was wrong to
covet her neighbor's servant.. In a .
low tone of voice she began to relate
her trodbles, and wound up by tirg•
ing the woman to leave. Mrs.—and
come with her, offering her a dollar
a week more than she was receiving.
The woman answered that she liked
her place, and.could not be induced
to give it np. And.she added:
"Besides, I generally sleep with
Mr. M—, and T. don't think he would
allow me to go."
The lady departed, utterly aston
ished at What she heard. liar feel
ings may be imagined when'-she
afterwards binned that she had been
talking with the mistress of. the
mansion, and the Wife of ono of our
most esteemed eititene.—Phila. Ex.

About tyears ago I was em
ploed as n ight-watchman in a sugar
refinery in Greenock, a town where
there are probably more sugar-re=
fteries than' n any other place in
rifitin. That in which 1 - was en
gaged was; the burst in the place,
and on accbuit of its size there was
another TiVatehinan beside myself.
Ips' name wan -Blackwood; he was a
widower ; d his only son, a boy of
about twel e, used often to come and
sleep in' e little room where we
Dept watch. Blackwood bad prom
bed to take his son
.a sail, and asked
me one dby if I would accompany
toem. I did so; and we went to Lock , ' ,
mond and spent a very pleasant!
y, andreturned just in time to go
to the ang4-house. It was hot weath
er at the thee, and baring done with
out our usnal sleep, we felt very tired.
The heat of the sugar-house was not
calculated to refreskus, and we could
hardly kee p our eyes open. We tried
as tp
reading, usual, but it was useless.
Before to b"clock, Blackwood had
fzllen ties . I determined to keep
awake, and intended, after a couple of
-1 oars or ad, to :owe my companion
end take asleep; myself, for I , felt it
would beinipossible to - asp watch
all night . 1 I mast, however, have
f en asleep unconsciously, and have
r maimed, so for several hours. I

viere s ling for life, and found
the room lied with stifling vapor,
and felt a intense heat, and I heard
without th crackling of flames. The
il ei
sugar-hon was on fire. •
I Blackly° d was still asleep, and I
'knocked 'm up, and opened the
dpor of th room. A cargo of raw
sugar and molassess had jast been
taken in, nd this was piled up' on
each side f the vaulted passage that
led from he main door of the re
finery. I is , mass was on fire, and
was sending out dense volumes of ,
smoke; o' the other 'bide of us were
wooden s airs, which led to various
parts of the building, and these were.
also in flaines. The refinery had ev
idently ben on fire for a long time,
and 'we could hear the shouts of the
people without. We were
s surround
-11 by the flames, and the heat was
great that it was certain we could
ant survive long. Blackwood and I
irked at ' ach other in dismay. His
boy appe red to be calmer than ti

I soon felt the choking stench of

were flowi g down the stairs and fill

remained tio I cannot tell. When I
recovered my senses, the heat had
not gone and there was about sit

was lying. This had come from the
fire -engines, and was lukewarm... I
could not feel this with my lands,
as they sad my face- were fearfully
scorched, but l i did so with my
tongue. I had called on Blackwoo4
but there' was no anower'; and

could be 'ransomed for the sum of

that ;he was a ',poor Man, and Could
not raise five ' hundred' pounds
(400). . Thereupon the robbers re

were made, but with no re alt. .
' One of/the gentlemen bo contri
buted to the fund for the ansom of
the child, knowing. that th Bank of
England never reissues its notes,
went to the bank and got its officers
tb mark and register the bills he was
going to give the father to obtain the
releaie of his child, and requested
the bank officers to notify him when
the bills should be returned to the
bank.l He did this, in the hope of
getting some trace of the scoundrels.'
Several months elapsed,when one day
he was notified that the bills had
been returned 'to the bank. Upon
inquiry he found that they had come
from a bank in the. North of Eng,land.
Thereupon he 'posted north and
found that 'the bills had been depos
ited by a person who opened' an se-, '
count with them. The gentleman
and hank clerk returned to London,
when, upon rival at his house, a
detective was -!lent - for, and at the

child was requ e st ed to meet them in
order to inform him of- their', discov

coming into the room the bank ;clerk
said:- • Why, this is the gentleman
who ', deposited the hills with' us."
And so it proved, In order to raise
money he had abducted his own child.
He was arrested for conspiracy to
defraud, tried, convicted and senr
tenced to penal servitude. So ended
the - kidnapping case, and people who
had little ones slept easier. •; .
