BAKER'S NILE TRIBUTARIES
Exr.s.. - 0.11T11114 OP TLIE NILE TrtiIIITT , RITLR
Or ABYSSINIA. By Sir 8. W. BAKER.
Bvo. bb. 608. Hartford, 0. D. -Case
Few recent books of travel have gained
so large a degree .of public' Interest and
favor among intelligent
. readers -in breat
Britian, as this admirable'record of scienti
fic-exploration, googruphical-discovery, and
personaludventure. The author, Sir WIL
IAM BAK }Lei is a wealthy Englialrgentlimam
an expes I -nci d traveler, - un enthusiastic and
skilful hunter and explorer, Who-in 18:1; in
company with his wife, left Cairo to explore
um mystery which enshrouded the' sources.
o'f the Nile. A. previous work of the author
on the "Great Basin Of the Nilo," gives' a
complete account of, the equatorial lake
system from which - the .famous Egyptian
..river derives its origin.- it isehownin that
volume that the rainfall of 'the equatorial
districts supplies two vast lakes of sufficient
magnitude to support-the Nile throughout
its entire course through the burning sands
of the desert until it reaches the Delta of
Lower Egypt. The present work is devot
ed to another systeincof tributaries, with-an
Origin entirely separate from the lake sources
of Central Africa, and supplying the water
for the- overflow on which the fertility of
Egypt depends. Thor, portion of Africa
which was explored by the author in the
.course of hie geographical researches in re
gard to the Abyssinian tributaries, is in
hapited by Christian and Mohammedan
races, and Words,. abundant materials for a
series of vivid pictures'whieh lend a pecu
liar charm to his work,' apart - from itii - value
and-interest in a scientific point of view.
Many of these-describe his sporting adven.
tures, which he evidently pursued with the
keen relish of a British Nimrod. We
annex a graphic description of ode of his
early encounters-with a crocodile. ,
"A few days before our arrival; a man
, had-been snatched from the back of his
camel while crossing, and was carried off by
a crocodile'. Another man bad been taken
during the last week, while swimining . the
river upon , a log. - It was supposed that
these accidents were due to the same croco
dile, who was accustomed to bask upon a
mud bank of the foot of the cotton plants;
Mtion. On the day foildwing our arrival
at the Atbara we found that our camel.
drivers had absconded during the night with
-'camels; these werethe men.wi.ho_hed
been forced to servo .hy the Governor • 'of
Casale. There was no possibility of pro

The streets of thq town are Wonderfully
gay and picturesque. • Sledges, with the fa
mous Bussitftrotters,inove gallantly about
over theltledn' ; white snow, the swift horses
jirigling'thelr meqy and-tossing-their
handsome heads"in their gay silver harness: -
Fair, fur-clad ladios-talking.pleasantly, and
making quite a holiday time of,it, go jatiqt
ily about in delightfnl good spirits. ' The
awful winter - is to - them a mere change of
pleasures ; they take their brisk recreation
of sledding by day, and muster at, brilliant
brills and assemblies at night. Nothing can
quench their thirst and excitement for so
ciety ; but the theatrei are closed by the po
lice, lest the coachman waiting for playgoers,
should - bci 'frozen on - his box.. The tariff
ceases for public,carriages,,and the droschicy
drivers, heartyenough to brave the weather,
may charge their own' fares. Gentlemen
walk about with pelisses of the black fox,
.costing as much as $4OOO apiece, because.
this -fur is the lightest arid wannest—for
`even fashion hits' reason, in its caprices.
Peraohs less wealthy 'or less luxarious, wrap
themselves in the skint of the racoon or the
skank, the bear or the beaver. Ladies go
clothedin sables, the finest 'f which should
-be of dark hair tinged with gray. The yel
low fox gives a good, light, warm fur ; blue
-is-discredited on-account-of-its cheapttesii.
Our houses in the South are not so -well
built for thisweather'as those in St. Peters
burg and the North. Not only do our win
.rers freeze, but the - frosi and snow force their
iivay,insido,lthe rooms and lie inches deep of
a - morning under the balcony doers - and be
tween the 'double windows. But, by means
of ovens between the walls, which we call
_stoves, we can contrive to keep our rooms
facing the Routh about 14 degrees Reaumur.
An-iron stove, when it burns well, which is
not often, will bring even a northerly more
up to 18 degrees; but this is too warm. It'
requires some_management to get a com
fortable temperature, which is abotir.ls de
grees Reaumur. An English fire-place;how
over large and .well-led, will 'by no means
make head against the difficulty.
A Warning• to Young Men.
Charles Lamb tolls as his Sad experience;
as a warning to young men, inthe following
language: • --
"The waters 'have gosh °vet me. But out
of the black depths, could J--be_heard, I
would cry out to all those t;•lio have set a
foot In the perilous flood. Could the 'youth
to whom the flavor of the first wine Is deli
cious as the 'opening scenes of life or enter
taining as some newly. uiscoiered _paradise, -
look into my dissolution and be made to fuel
what a dreary thing it is when lid can feel
himself going dor,ri a precipice with open
eyes and passive will to his destruction, and
have no burned power to stop it, and feel it
all the way emenatingJrom himself ; to see
the godliness emptied olit,of him, and yet
not ye able- to forget 'a time when it. was
otherwite; hear the piteous spectacle of his
own ruin; 'could see my fevered eye,fe'Vered
with - last niglit'S 'driiiking, add 'feverishly
looking to to-night's repenting folly; could
lie feel the body of the death out of which I
cry hourly to be delivered.; it were enough
to make him dash the sparkling_beverageqo
the earth, in all...the-pride of its mantling,
POWEALESS GODS.-A Chinese god factory
was visited by the Rev. Mr. Allen, a Metho
dist minister, and when ho expressed his
s'tirprise at the _familiarity with-which the
workmen in clay treated the gods and god
desses -of -war, - wealth, thunder, fire;'water,
mercy, revenge,.they, with the utmost sang
froid, replied that thoy were yet powerless,
being destitute of the ling or "spirit." Those
designed for toys, therefore, are never 'en
dowed with the living spirit, nor the others
until the time of their installment as reigning
divinities. At that time, however, they are
possessed Of the " ling," by means of a small
hole in the bank, if the idol be diminutive,
or a largo oblong one in the more august ;
in which there are deposited pearls i -gems or
'some .of the more precious metals, such as
gold and silver, of various estimation. The
hole is then closed and sealed, the good per
fected, and henceforth worshipped na well
by his makers as those who are ignorant of
his origin. This fact wilt also -assist us to
account, at least, in-part, for the incOnoclas
tic fury of the Chinese rebels They were
to despoil .and destroy them, not so much
because they loved the idol less, but because
they loved the - gold his bank contained a
good deal more.
A - conductor on" a road running frbm

"He's trying to live on his salary!" was
the quick reply.
