music, "the soul of beauty," gushed forth-re

The Landsmann, Herr Lie, it tall, handsome

speaks tolerable EngliSh. With hint end Herr'
Berger, we' found a third prrson,a theological
student, stationed at Kautokeine to learn the
Lapp tongue.' Pastor Hvoslef, the clergyman,
is the' only other:Norwegian resident. The
village, separated from the Northern 000111,
by the barren, uninhabited ranges of the Kio
lean Mountains, and from the Finnish Battle
mettle on. the Muonio by the swampy table
lands we had traversed, is one of the wildest
and Most fOrlorn places in all Laphthd. Oc•
cupying, as it does, the centre of a large . dis
trict over which the Lapps tango with 'their
reindeer herds during the Summer, it lynever
theless a place of some importance, both for
trade an Jim the education, organization and
proper e ttrol ot thebarely reclaimed 'inhabit
ants. A church was first built here by Chorles
XL of Swedee in 140, although, inthe course
of subsequent hounded , enljustMents, the dis-
trict wits' made ovei to Nonvey. Hatto cen
tury afterward; some'fainilies of Finns settled
here;' but they appear to have gradually mix
ed with the Lapps, so that there is little of the
pure blood of either Mee to be found at prea•
eat. I should remark that throughout Nor
wegian I..apland the Lapps •are .universally
called Finns, and the Finns, Quails. As the
change' of minion, however, might occasion
seine confusion, I shall adhere to the more eor
rect Swedish manner or designating thew,
which I hare used hitherto.
