IA dream, related et the late anniversary of
the Erangelical Society of Now York city and
vicinity, has been versified wit some addition=,
as fellows
Tuihiuh vi t(et.4 quite late one. ere,
NVlnit, one and another of saint , ',eller e,
That Light I e!ooil in a troubl d dream,
IV the tiitle darkly-801,in_ stream.
Aml Chop:l)mm/ " tlouu to the river came,
When I heard a strange voice call his name:
" Good father, step; when you cross this tido
You must leave your robes on the other side.'
But the aged father did not mind,
And his lung gown floated out behind,
As down to the stream his-way- he took,
His hands firm hold of a gilt-edged book
"I'm bound for heaven, ae when I'm there
I shall want my Book of Neon:ion Prayer;
Anti though I put on a etarry crown,
I Omuta fc-1 quite lost,without my gown."
But Lis atmn 'lve.A heavy and held biro back,
And tie poor old father tried inimin
A :Anglo step in the flood to gain.
I saw him again on tho other aide,- .
But his silk gown floated on the tide,
And ne ele asked, in that blissful spot,
If he belouged t to.." tho.chtirehi',or not
Then down to the river a Quaker strayed;
His dress of a sober hue was made.
‘.` My bat and coat must be all gray;
I eanuot gto any other way." • • • '
Thcu he buttoned his coat straight up to his chin.
And E t id 1
,y, solemnly, waded in, -'-
And his - broad-biimined hat be pulled down tight
Over his forehead, so .pold.a.n4 white.
But a slieng wind curried. away his-hat,
And I,c si,glicd a few moments over,tbat;
And ilen es he gazed to the, farther shore,
The ca..t slii,rettotT, and was been vo more
Poor dying Quaker!, thy suit of gray
Is quietly I-ailing---& - Way—away:
But thoult go fu beaver), ns skaight as an arrow,
Whether thy hyita be broad of narrow.
Next eatne Dr. Wntts, with a bundle of psalms,
tied nicely up in hi. 4 aged arms,
AIL hymns as many—a very wise thing--:-
'flit people in heaven, "nil round," might sing
iiki: 1 !!.. z+,:ht that he heaved an anions sigh,
A. I— -als ii ~t the river ran broad and high,
And I rather surprised, as one by one
The 1,-;1 , 1fIS and hymn's in the wave went down
And after him, with his MSS.,
Came Wesley, the pattern of godline3.s;
But he cried, Dear me, what thrill I do?
The n: ter has soaked them through and thro'
And there, on the river, far,and wide, •
Away thcy went on the swollen tide; '
And the saint, astonished, passed through alone,
Witt,vt.t thanu-otipts, up to the throne.
Thos. gravely walking, two saints by name
Doun to the stream tokether came;
But er they Ftopped at the ricer's brink,
I raw one taint flow the other shrink.
"Spill:1,1(11 or plunged, may I ask you, friend,
Bow you attained to life's great end ?"
" ThuE, Ivith a few drops on my brow;"
.4 pnt I have been dipped as you'll sco me now.
"Arid I tyally think It will hardly do,
Au rio cluee.oututuuvion,'.. to. cross .with you;
You're bnun'd, ttio , iealnitt of
But you Limn go that way, owl go this."
And, htraightway, plunging with all his might
Array to the let t—hio friend to the right--
Apart they went from this irtirld of sin;
And how did the brethren " enter in ?"
And now where the river WDS rolling on,
A Plethyttrinn church . went down ;
or .seemed an innumerable throng,
But the men I could count as they pust.-ed along
And concerning the road they could never agree,
The old pr the new way, which it could be;
Nor ever a moment paused to think • •
That both would lead to the river's brink.
And a round of murmuring, long and loud,
Cnmc ever up froth the'.nnyiihg:.eincid—
"You're in the old way, and Pm in the new ;
That is the false, and this is the true;
Or, yin in the old war, and you're in the new;
That is the false, and this; is the true."
But the brethren only seemed to speak—
:Modest the sitter's walked, and Meek;
And if ever ono of them .chanced to say
What trouble:.4 she met Nvith on the wav,
How she longed to pass tb the other side, -
Nor feared to cross over the swelling tide,
- A voice arose from the brethren then,
"Let no one speak bat the 'holy men,'
For have ye not heard the words 'of Paul 7
• uh i let the women keep silence' all.'
I w.t , died them long in my curious dream,
Till !ley stood by the border of the stream;
Phey , just as I thOught, the two ways met.
But ill the,brethren were taking yet,
And would talk on : till the hearing tide
earned them over, side by side;
Side by side, for the. way was one.
The toilsome journey of lifd was done;
And priest and Quaker, and :all'!" who died
Came out alike on the other side;
No forms or . erosAs, or books had they,
No gowns of silk, or suits of gray,
Nu erieds to guide them, no 11.155:,
For al! had put on "Christ's righteousness."
4 , All seen in the dream
Our towatriali, Ira Davenport, who
is now traveling in Spain, writes the
following letter to his brother, who
hands it to us for publication :
MALAGA, Dec, 26, 166p.'
We left Cadiz, Friday afternoon, on a
steamer for Gihraltar, a night's ride up
on 'which, all were sea sick, except the
one member of our party who is al
ways exempt from that affliction. Sat
urday., we took donkeys and went up
the rock of Gibraltar. Sunday, tried to
Noss over to Africa; we were obliged
to go upon Sunday or lose the trip, as a
retribution, we met with the following
iheidents: As the steamer wits 'adver
tised 'for Tangiers, we supposed it would
make in the usual time of four hours.—
After -embarking in - a small boat, and
getting on our little-steamer, we pro
w:dud not o4' :lie bay, whell„ 'listen( of
heading fur Tangiers, she put off' i 4
/1211i:rent direction toward an Ameri ui

for an explanation; we were told to c
ticket:;, and we would discover
II c Cap:itin reserved tile lOU, to take
too. win-n it could be got through the
strvits, and as this small tag was having
tioae tnar i it could do, the - Captain pur

Which, Wc! would reach Tati! , iers some
time during the night.
The 't lie commenced to, blow pretty
esh, amd thi• little steamer began to
10151; and toll'. There were no accom
tito(lations except benelies up by the
helm. and no ploinise of anything fur
Wilber except 1.01 ii and bread. .The
Copt mint otleied to put us on board the
other tug if he could, as this was better
-.than pitching about all day, we accep
ted that offer. As we neared the tug,
she passed the ship rope over to our
steamer and passed on. The Captain
hailed her,
however, and she put opt a
„pum boat for us. We were now out in
the straits, and the waves were ,hll4ll,
and the little boat we were endeavor

lug to get down into pitched up and
down against the side of the steamer
Kite a cork, it Wars difficult to get into,
and after we were in, the confusion, and
the waves tossing us about, we. came
near getting under the wheel, in which
ease, we would have been smashed.—
We had a close escape.
Anyone Who has tried getting off in
to small boats when the vessel is in a
harbor, - ctin appreciate our feelings when
we were attempting it outside with the
wind blowing, the sea stiff and the
sailors swearing.: We were. rowed over
to the tug. The ladies kept up courage
pretty well. Weiboarded the tug with
out a repetition of- the scene in , getting
into the row boat. The ladies got rath
er wet, and on the lit:partook of a hot
drink, as did we all. In getting' the
brandy ilaSk out, I discovered a prayer
book, so -I improved the occasion on
our return I:0' -reading - hymns. We
reached the hotel' live hours - after we
left it, and that Wag the way we ,saw
. 1 •
Next daY we concluded to take a trip
over the Malaga, and the la
dies thought they could stand it, so we
sent our baggage around to Malaga by
steamer; and took seven horses and
two guides, one courier, and started at
8 o'clock, Tuesday morning. We had
twenty-three miles to make first day,
but we could take, and 'did; a carriage
five miles; where Le. horses joined us,
The ladies bad sure-footed and fast
walking 'tones. 'F—y's horse - was at
tached to the guide's by a rope. I came
next on a good horse, Adolphe,' the
courier, bringing up the rear. The only
road was a mule and donkey -- one, no
cart or wagon' could 'traverse It. Our
path lay the most of the' day through a
level 'country, sorbewhat rolling, a good
sized river kept winding along, across
which we forded some twenty times.—
The better part of thenfternoon we saw
the path winding up the Sierras, and
in the topmost , peak, then in sight
5000 feet above thosen, we . descried the
outlines of a castle, and :a few_ white
spots at its base indicative of the town
of Gocinc, where we ware to spend the
night. We were about an hour behind
when we reached its base and com
menced the ascent by a narrow zig-zag,
, The country' had been -*isited by
rains, and the path was hoth of the
roughest as well as muddiest I ever saw.
The niountains of bare, broken granite;
dusk came on rapidly; and It
,was no
longer day by the time we were half
way up, but fortunately the evening
was not dark, although misty, it seemed.
as•though the town hekt moving as we
advanced. The_ top of every peak
abed(' of us being generally crowned
with some huge rocks, wo were contin
ually supposing we had at last reached
the castle peak of Goeine. At last we
came to the top of the only remaining
one intervening, and the welcome sight
of the town towered above us. The as
cent of that mountain I shall never
forget. F—y, who had deciddd to
take the trip, expecting Swissmountain
mule paths, found - she had got some
what more than was bargained for.—
However, we rode into the place at last,
about 7 o'clock,• making the narrow
stone paved streets resound with the
clattering of the_horses hoofs, and ,eaus
ing the doors off the lo‘q white-washed
stone houses•to,cipen, aro the occupants
came- out, in • aston ishm:en t to, s_ee , the
invadorki . of- tb r - Wlrrati nd ' a
coMfortable " Poseida',;l where we
supped, lodged and breakfasted. I
shall not tfeseribe it, for the owner and
keeper had been a cook. in Gibraltar,
and so it was not a regular Spanish Po
soda, but we will come to one.
The next morning We_ started as be
fore,' at 8 o'clock ° . The scenery now
commenced to repay the toil, moun
tains and wheys around and below us,
at one point We turned a little aside
from the path, and came to the edge of
a precipice. A thousand feet below us,
lay a_cornpact
,Spanish_ town with its
white houses 'and grey-tiled roofs;
further down Still, tt stream wound its
way around in its narrow valley. The
mountains rose up with broken surfa
ce, and stretched away to the right and
left 'in extensive' sweeps through an
opening betweert two mountains, at the
extreme right we could see in the dis
tance the rock of Gibraltar and the
Mediterranean. The bells were ring
ing in the town below us, and sounded
strangely from' the high point we were
on, with the 'wide and mountainous
scenery' stretching out before us, the
last place where we would expect the
sound Of,a, church bell to be heard.
Our next town' for 'the night was
Ronda. The ride was through- the
same scenery, down-into valleys and up
mountains, every foot,of arable ground
however,- put to use; wheat fields with
it round circle in the centre,. paved with
small stones, this was She • threshing
floor, floaka of sheep or goats browsing
on the sides of the mountains. Passed
through several cork woods or orchards.
The tree has a ragged and twisted
pearande. The bark only is taken off
and that not every year. This does not
injure the tree.,, Of course there was
not a honk: aiilthe way. Occasionally
a building could be seen where the_
laborers housed during the seed time
and harvest, Nvhen the field was too
far from town.' Heie 'were some excel
lent spring§ by the wayside, and flow
ers.. About four o'clock we reached our
last 'aSeent, and Ronda - lay below us on
top of a high mountain, and below that
a wide and fertile valley. 'We com
menced our descent, and entered the
town , at 6 o'clopk ; a phtce of 23,000 in
habitants, situated upon a high rock
with precipitous sides. The centre of
the town is divided by - a narrow chasm; .
as if it had been cleft in two by volcan
ic action. On one side lies the oldest
poi lion of the city, the two are connec
ted together by hn iminense stone bridge,
one arch of 110 feet span, over the sides
of which yon look down nearly 300 feet
to the river, that runsand boils through
this narrow gorge; some of the water
has been turned - from its course and is
carried through little channels, cut
along-the side of the rocks, to some
small mills that cling to the rocks over
the rushing river, paths have been eta
in zigzag courses down to them. Of
course the houses are all built Oose up
to the edge of the chasm, one we visited
called the Moors House, has a. flight of
steps 400 in number, cut throtigh the
rock; down to the water. These are in
side the rock, and of different flights
connected With a gallery at the land
ing of each flight, you can pass out to
the, side bf the chasm, which though
precipitous, is sufficiently broken to al
ot small plateaus being cut out,
tip 'n which, when the town belonged
to the Moors and this house was in its
grandeur, flowers were placed in pots,
and vines twisted around the entrance.
The whole labor of excavation was per
' f o rmed ny ehristian captives, 2'!'t
everything b 4 damp and neglected,
and we did not attempt the entire de
scent, but from one of the little plat
eaus, we could see some distance up the
gorge, where the final exit was cut.
We had fair beds, but an execrable
breakfast. The ride had been about 20
miles' from (iocine to Ronda. The
next day's ride was from Ronda to
Pizarro,' a good 23. This was rather
too much for F—y and K—, who had
however, stood it pretty well'so far. K—
particularly, bad excited the admira
tion of theguides t by her skillful riding.
I quite distinguished myself in the
seine line, to my surprise. We feund
on enquiry, --there was a town nine
miles otf, on our direct route, where
beds could be found for the ladles, ,at
least, and our provisions we could take.
When we at last reached the top, and
commenced the descent over the same
kind of path, F—y's courage gave out,
and she dismounted to go it upon foot,
which she did safely, until the danger,
if any, was over. Our horses were
sure footed enough. We passed next
through a stretch of gulley with a few
scattered Olive trees growing about;
some . had been lately cut, and were
being burned for charcoal., Up anoth er hill, and another wide sweep of barren
mountains and valleys, with the town
where we were to spend the night, op
posite us, at the base of the mountain.
We entered after reaching the' valley
at dusk, with a crowd of donkies and
laborers returning from' the fields.—
Hers we excited the village. Such a
thing as our cavalcade had never be
fore stopped.for the night. We rode up
tothe POsado; or inn—ti two story white
lashed buildin g, 'of-a 'little more pre
miens than its neighbors; we rode
at the door; the floor was paved like
the street; we dismounted; the horses
\Vere:led on through the room, which
was the open first floor of the Posado,
to the stable, another open room, warm,
with straw above. On the left were
large clay jars holding water, ranged
along thelside, until a flight of stone
steps comMeneed to ascend to the upper

about Mr. Greeley, which has never be

"Mr. • Greeley has never been accused.
of extravagance in dress, even by 'the

ago, habited in his usual quaint style,
he was leaning over the counter in We

morning arrived by steamer, and who,
it turned out, was connected with the
London Times, and had come to ar
range some business between that pa

"Approaching Mr. Greeley with
very arrogant air, he said: ' Fellow, d
you work here?" Yes, - sie.' 'ls Mr
Greeley in ?" Yes, sir.' After waitin
a little, and seeing that the ' fellow
seemed very indifferent to his presence

The dismal December night was elos

Its white pall over all, and the wind,
murmuring sadly through the streets,
seemed to have an almoA hu m an wail
in his moan.
'lt's an ngly kind of a night," mut
tered Mr. Terryn to himself, as he buck
led his fur closet; around bie neck, "and
wind fit to cut one in two. Hallo!
What's this?'
' He had very nearly stumbled over
,something that looked like a bundle,
jcrouching at the foot of a flight of steps,
in the shadow of a ruinous old brick
archway; but, as ho checked himself
abruptly, the bundle erected Itself into
something human in shape and looked
'at him through its wild, human eyes.
' Who are you !' he demanded, on
the impulse of the moment:
' , Only me, sir—little Tess.'
'Please give a penny, sir !' cried the
child, suddenly subsiding Into the
professional whine of her tratlle. 'Only
a penny.'
- ' Where do you live?'
I don't live nowhere, skulks
round in the alleys.'

(For the creature's tangled locks and
ragged garb gave no clue to the sex.)
'l'm a girl, sir.'
' You ought to be ashamed of yourself,
begging in the streets,' said Mr. Terryn,
severely, 'Why don't you work ?'
As he approached his own door a
bright child's face, peeped out between
the curtain. and as Mr. Terryn entered
the cheery Sitting room, he could not
but think with a remorseful pang, of
the shivering bundle of rags under the
brick archway beyond.
It' none of my business,' he thought
'I dare say the police will pick the poor
little elf up, and take her where she'll
be better off.'
But Mr. Terryn's conscience was lesii
adamantine that be bad given it credit
for being. It pricked him sorely as he
sat toasting his slippered feet before the
bright embers—it whispered to him as
he listened to the lullaby wherewith
his wife was lulling the baby to sleep
upon her breast. Had little Tess ever ,
known a mother's care or heard a
mother's cradle song? And she could
seareely.have been six years old either.
Where are you going, my dear?'
said his wife, as he rose up suddenly.

' But, what am I to do?'
' ITave you . spoken to Tessl yet?'
' Wait thew—let matters rest. I will

So Mrs. Terryn gave little dinner par

Mrs. had known that she would.
Tesora was a belle—a queen of fasliion.

The Constitution of the Earth
NU3l.l3lnt EiII'HT:-
I take the liberty q l f denominating
Granite, the Living Rock, having an
analogy to the living bark of the tree,
the shell of certain fish and to the ani
mal skin and it may be having various
sti b-divisions, as the animal skin. With
out expressing, at present, an opinion
of its entire correctness. I shall speak
of the granite as composing the living
covering of the entire earth.
I refer to the_facts set forth it:t__No. 5-
to show that this rock puts forth pro
cesses and_ roots growing up into the
super-incumbent strata In exact anal
ogy to animal and vegetable life ; that
no reek above the granite exhibits any
similar phenomena; to the generally
conceded fact that while we can ac
count for all general strata above, on
the aqueous theory, for the granite we
cannot account except on the theory of
crystallization, which geologists tell us,
but which I do not believe, must result
from the cooling of a molten mass of
matter having in its composition all
the materials of which granite is corn
posed and to the fact that no rock above
the granite :iIIOWS any signs of upheav
al unless where it is raised by the grad
ual upheaval of the granite t . or of dead
inett matter interposed between the
gi au ite and the super-incumbent strata.
However GeoloAsts may differ in
other things they generally agree in
this that alt the strata above this living
rock, is 'mole up from what was origi
nally :t part of that rod k., unless, per
haps, seine na exeept that part which
is the rezult of volcanic action ; and

Hunt and Professor Thompson of Glas

theory of au ancient gradual cooling of
the'earth from the centre to the circum

Hopkins of Cambridge, the theory that
the earth began to cool simultaneously
both at the centre and circumference,
and thus on till nearly the whole mass
was cooled, but like David Forbes leav

which was sent out on its travels in
search of increase, and for millions of
years has been bumming and foraging

tary a - eposite would be 98,485,848 cubic
wilds which if abstracted from the cen
tre of the earth would leave-a globular
space of 573 miles diameter.
If the 'deposites have an average
depth of 52,800-feet or ten miles, which
Is nearer the truth, then there has been
abstracted from the interior parts of the
earth 974,739,513 cubic miles, which if
taken from the centre'would leave a
- globular space of 1230 miles diameter,
surrounded by a crust of 3344 miles
thickness. No wonder that some an
cient' mythologists, if they ever figured
up this matter placed
"The prisons of thd . over damned and lost
In the dark dismal centre of the earth
Surrotinded there by adamantine walla,.
That all the powers of earth and hell combined
Could neker break."
Now itll geologists admit, atleast all
who follow in the. footsteps of Lyell,
that this outside dead crust is no part
of the organization of the earth, if the
earth has an internal organization as
suggested, and they would, I presume,
admit that it bears a great analogy to
theil cast off dead natter of animal and
vegetable bodies.
! Cionsequently they must admit these
outside strata to be an absolute loss to
:the interior in the absence of compere-.
6atfon. from some extraneous source,
Which no one while adhering to the
theory of the Igneous fluidity of the in- 1
terior of the earth has attempted c).,
supply. The difficulty has been se rt.:
arid an attempt has been made to
move ir, by suggesting inamerise ca !-
ties in the earth which haven been r
erroirs of melted' matter, and are n w
since its ejection by volcanic and of er
action become- reservoirs of gaseous
matter. Others' have attempted to
overcome the difficulty by renenricing
the igneous fluidity theory and adopt
one somewhat similar to the one spoken
of above of meteoric accretions upon a
central nucleus and holding that not
only 50,000 feet is Secondary but nearly
the while mass.
