On issuing froni the depot in Dresden ;
one comes at, once across a peculiar cus
tont, peculiar to Germany at least. There
=Lads a long row, of bright blue car
ridges, "droskies," as . they call them,
but where is the uproar and confusion of
the eager drivers that au American natnr
ally exoects! All the drivers sit uncdn
cdrnefily in their seats and do not even
rouse; out of their \ comfortable doze! ;A
man At the door in a snit of plain liv4ry
thrusts into your hands kticket bearing a
number, and points to the 'carriages; you
find for yourself the carriage whose num
' ber corresponds to Your ticket, and rouse
the slumbering driver, who very slowly
and deliberately closes the do r, mounts
box and starts. One does not mind
the slow rate howetker; there 's much to
see, and besides the windows , attle and
jingle' so that one is really under the im
pression that the speed is tremendous! On
you go, „through a niodern-looking city
with wide streets and !many open squares,.
past a statue of a rearing horse with a
.rider in Roman armor, "Frederik Angus
tus the strdug," not a wonderful work of
art for one's first view of this artistic city.
Soon you rumble over fine bridge, with
an unbroken stream of people on either
side; it is the "Elbe bridge," more than
five hundred years old, strong to stem the
rushing river and bear its tide ;of short
lived human beings for another five hun
dred years. There is (no sign of age in
those low round arches and heavy piers.
Just at the end of that bridge stands a
house, on the corner of which is a large
flying figure of Time', with scythe and
hourglass held high aloft—the age of the
bridge. Time shaking his unheeded
glass, and the stream of living beings,
so shortilived in comparison, always
impresse strongly. Over the bridge,
we enter the "Schloss platz. " Hereare man of the beautiful buildings
of Droden. On your left, the
• broad, handsome flight of steps, adorned
with two groups of statuary, of uncom
mon beauty, leads to a promenade, thickly
planted With trees, laid out on the old
fortifications, and ending in the "Belvi
dere Saloon," one of the delights of Dreg-.
den, of which I shall often have occasion
to speak. ;The Catholic church, an ugly
building, but adorned with many ) fme
statues: the old, gloomy Palace; theJloyal
Theatre, and—dear to all lovers ot'Art—
``.. l'ihe far-famed picture-gallery;—all these
cluster round or near the "Schlossplatz."
- Compared with quaint old Bamberg and
many oth German 'towns, Dresden is
modern-looping, but its many bow win
dows, onei n top of the other to the very
roof, and ging suspended to every
corner hoc , its high, crumpled, red.:
tiled roofs, \lth dormer windows, ) like
sleepy, half-.hut eyes, one could never
for a moment imagine himself in Ainer-
Ica ! If he did, he need only bring his
eyes again to earth and watch for a mo
ment the crowd that sweeps by; little
carts drawn by women and dogs—which
pulling the hardest it is hard to say;
, women with huge baskets on their backs,
bending under loads a man might well
grumble at; officers and soldiers innu
merable, market women sitting in half
barrels, with little Dots of charcoal under
their feet to keep them warm; and now
and then, to relieve the monotony of
rather homely faces and homely dresses,
-a bright, pretty American woman—for
our countrywomen are acknowledged
beauties here, and while many dress
rather extravagantly, all dress..s,stefully,
which cannot be said of the German.
women one sees on the streets.
Arid what do our countrymen do in
Dresden? The world is very much the
same everywhere! , Foolish Americans
do not cease to be foolish in - Europe, and )
wise ones grow wiser! Everywhere at
fashionable places one sees overdressed,
, loud-talking and laughing young people,
' that one is not proud to own his country-
Men and country-women. The latter
have their train of fast young men who
think in Europe they can do as they
please, of young Saxon officers, who offer
titles and birth for good American gold,
and make themselves absurd and con
spicuous, aE; just such people do at home.
There are many who come for improve..
ment, who, living in quiet families, study
the languhge and get the real good of
the fine gallery and unequalled instru
mental music. Although the fast set are
the inostnspicuous, it Is evident, from
. the kindl feelings of the people, that
American are liked. I met a German
Eentleman who, with most imperfect
English; as trying to Make himself
agreeable, asking when I left England,
and reed ing for answer, "I sin an
• Anserican, ' his whole face changed and
. glowed, a d with redoubled - efforts he '
strove to ell me how much he admired
Americans 1 It - was like a sudden leap
from;winter to warm summer l
Every one who comes to Dresden is
eager first f all to go to the great picture
gallery, an a letter from Dresden would
be the play of. Hamlet with Hamlet left
out, Without some description of it, and
yet from I very beauty and richness it is
hard,tc de ribe ! The building itself is
a kaigAw story edifice of stone: In
She centre is an arch surmounted with
a dtime and adorned with stone carvings.
The interior is exceedingly handsome,
with 'broad, stately-staircases, doors :of
dark wood, beautifully carved with artis
tic designs, the painters' let and
brushes, and sculptors, models P and tools,
graceiblly)grouped .in the great rooms,
one opening into the other where the
pictures are, you quickly cease to notice
the room and all but the pictures. Many
of us havelstcod before "old masters" in
America, with the dismal , mieghing that
we had no artistic taste, for if thafamoky,
dark, ugly !thing was an "old master,"
then we had not the soul of art within,
us, for, tryl, es we might, no ray of beauty
could we see there 1 The walls of all the
European galleries are rich in juin such ; ;
"old masters," and if one tomes abrOad
expecting to see a masterpiece in every
picture hdiing a famous - name he will be
sorely disappointed; but when he come s
to a real masterpiece, if he has any appre:
elation and !,love of beauty, he will glow
with delight and bless the day that
brought him such a joy I Ile need not
be a man with
be an artist; he need only
a soul within him, and he, too, will love
the "old masters." There are people
who can stand before Raphael's glorious
"Madonna di San Sisto" and "see noth
ing in it," and there was a man once who
could see nothing in "Niagara" but a
gigantic .water power-for sponging coats!
This world•famous picture is in a room
by itself, (many a fine picture suffers
from the want of such isolation,) and
men tread softly and speak low, as in a
temple, as they enter there, and well they
may; for more than three hundred years
has that sublime picture looked down in
its beauty, gladdening the eyes and up
lifting the hearts of men.
It is that well own Madonna of
Raphael's, whore mother, holding the
child in her arms, stands on a cloudy
globe. At her right hand kneels Pope
Sextus, at the left Saint Barbara.
The wonderful, deep, divine lbok in
the face of the child strikes you at once,
while the full ,depth of expression inlthe
mother is more subtle; its exquisite beauty
is appreciated at once, but the fullness
and elevation of expression grows upon
you with every visit, and indeed cannot
be fully realized until often seen. It is
truly "The Pearl of the Gallery."
This collection of pictures is not es
pedally rich in fine specimens of the
Italian school. There are very fe of
Raphael's, few of Guido's, though those
few. are very fine; Guido ranking next to
Raphael in my estimation;as a painter of
the highest spiritual power. There are
also one or two of Carlo Dolce's, beauti
ful in coloring "and expression; but the
main richness of the gallery Is in its
Dutch pictures. Reimbrandt standing at
the head of the Dutch school as Raphael
does of the Italian. Here is his famous
portrait of himself and wife, and many
beautiful portraits unequalled richness
and depth of coloring.
It. is a most delightful sensation to
walk down these long rooms and recog
nize, one after the other, famous pictures
that one has known all one's life, from
engravings. The number of small, ex
quisitely finished pictures by Teniers,
Gerard Dow, Van Dyk and many other
well known artists, is very great and day
after day one can examine them with
never failing pleasure.
Once' a month 'a collection of minia
tures is op hi to the public, which; though
small, is exceedingly interesting. There
are many portraits of sovereigns, many
of them famous imen and women, of
whoin you form new ideas or intensify
old ones as yon study their faces. Mary
Queen of Scots is there with her lovely
face; Catherine,, Of Russia; Maria The.
resa • and many a king and hero, from
Charlemagne to Napoleon.
But nothing is so unsatisfactory as
writing about pictures. They are so
real, making such strong and marked
impressions, yet so delicate and subtle,
that it is quite impossible to transfer any
just idea of them to paper.
Dresden has quite as high a reputation
for its music as its pictures—instrumental
music principally. There is an excellent
opera every night, with very fair voices
and more than usually good choruses and
remarkably fine scenery and costumes.
Classical concerts are given three arm four
times a week, and, above all, the cheap
concert saloons are never failing sources
of delight to all music' lovers. There,
for about seven cents entrance 'fee,
you can hear first class orchestral music,
a fine band of from twenty to forty per
formers, splendidly drilled, and many of
them performers who might set up for
"Stars" in America. Ladies take their
knitting or fancy work and call for a cup
of coffee or chocolate; gentlemen their
glass of beer. Not as Americans sup
pose, swallowing it by the dozen glasses,
but one, or at most two, lasting them a
whole evening as they sip and listen,
and talk between times. Such a sociable
people as they are, talking incessantly
and most volubly, yet never in loud or
rude tones; and, what looks strange to
an American, not often in a mixed circle
of ladies and gentlemen, the ladies gen
erally being in little knots by themselves,
their tables.,ooking quite like a fancy fair
with piles of pretty work and bright knit
ting; the gentlemen congregating around
other tables, with only occasionally a
husband or brother included in the fetal
There are a thousand new and odd
customs•and ways pleasant to watch, and
suggesting more thoughts than can be
put into one letter, well deserving a sepa
rate and full description.
This city, it is reported, is shamefully
deficient in arrangements to furnish a
supply of water sufficient for the wants of
the inhabitants. John Knox's Church, it
is stated, is the centre of an area, densely
packed with 44,400 human beings, living
and dying like swine. Close y John
Knox's house is a well, the only water
supply of the district, and here, from six
in the morning until nearly midnight,
women, girls and children are described
as standing and struggling for their turn,
some, often, having to wait three hours.
Though this district is the best paying
property in Edinburgh, no taps are to be.
seen. A benevolent English lady, who
recently made a thorough investigation
Into the wants of the poor of Edinburgh,
asserts that in no other city could houses
be found without gas, without water
pipes or sink or temporary re-..
ceptaCle for ashes, nd enterd only
by one lone, dark stone stair, which
return such enormous profits to their
owners as from fortyfive to sixty per
cent. One roof sometimes covers a pop
ulation of three hundred souls, living In
narrow dens, without ventilation and
sometimes without light. In Edinburgh,
according to an official census, were are
13,200 families, comprising not only the
vicious and abject, but large numbers of
the poorer laboring. class, who live in
houses' of but one room, and of these
single rooms, 1,580 are inhabited by from
six to fifteen persons. One hundred and
twenty of these shelters, for, it asserted,
they cannot be called houses, were reKirt
ed as without windows, and 000 were cel
lars; nearly all of them dark, and many
damp. 'The - census gives the astOnishing
result that the families living In one
and often herding together in closer
proximity than Animals would endure,
comprehend 88,000 persons, or consider
ably more than one-third of the popula
tion of Edinburgh.

ask the attention of all interested in the reduc
tion of the extravagant cost of Butter,. to their
practical and economical system of making pure
prime Butter tiy the aid of the
lEXTRACT OF B u rtER PLANT.
A brief allusion to the origin of this imrortant
discovery may not prove uninteresting. Among
the authenticated records of the renowned Cap
tain Cook's voyage around the world,, is found
the statement, that while sojourning fora short
time on the Brazilian Coast of South America, be
observed the natives using, in the preparation of
their food, a peculiar oil, which, tipon examina
tion. he found to possess the appearance, taste
and flavor of Butter; upon farther inquiry, how
ever, lie ascertained that It was simply a sub
stance that the natives distilled in a crude and
imperfect manner, from a rich and luxuriant
plant that grew spontaneously and abundantly In
that warm tropical country. A few jeans ago,
an eminent French chemist, while on' a profes
sional visit to the troPics, made numerous exper
iments witn this remarkable produCtion of na
ture, and succeeded In extracting a concentrated
essence of the plant. The formula for Its prepa
ration, and the Sole Bight for its sale in this
country are the exclusive property of this Com
pany, by whom it was purchased . from the °Mid
i nal discoverer. We claim for this remarkable,
yet simple, and perfectly harmless preparation—
Its.—That by its use a net gain of from 50to 200
per cent. is made In the manufacture of Butter.
ad.—That Butter, which from age' or whatever
ninth, may be strong, rancid, streaked or
coarsC-grained, and comparatively useless for
general use, by the aid of this Extract, is re
stored to Its original freshness and sweetness,
fine-grain, and even color. 1
3d.—By the use of this Extract. one pound of
delicious, fresh Butter is actually c made from
one pint of milk.
4th.—That a pure and excellent table Balter can
be made, at a cost of from 15 to 20 c nts per
pound. The chief expense wherein being But
ter, which Is the essential Due.
Bth.—That Butter manufactured by titi aid of
this Extract is equaliin every respect to the best
Butter made by the ordinary method.
6th.-Tne Extract' after thorough analysis, by
able chemists, is pronounced perfectly free from
any deleterious substance, the Ingredients be
ing purely of a vegetable nature:
Bth.—ln proof of the foregoing assertions, the
factory of this company Is making one ton of
Butter per day, which meets with ready sale
In the New York Mrrket. and is consumed fiom
the tables of the first Hotels, Restaurants and
Private .families In this city and elsewhere.
A sample package of the Extract (sufficient to
make 30 lbs. of Butter) with full directions for
use, will be sent to any address on receipt of el.
CAtiIION.-..As articles of real merit are sub
lect to spurious Imitations, we Would sueclally
caution the public against counterfeits and worth
