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 mind" the 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 r 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 "I 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 aa roof, and ging suspended to every i c 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 i . gallery, an a letter from Dresden would i 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 41 = 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 t 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 nine circle. 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. Edinburgh. 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 room, 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.

T HE ECONOMY BUTTER 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 less imitations, advertised at Tvowderd— com pounds & c., as the Extract of the Butter Paint Is prepared and sold only by The Econozny Batter Co.
