London Seen feom a Balloon. The earth, as
file aeronautic vessel glided over it, seemed positively
to consist of a continuous series of scenes -which Trere

diorama laid llat upon the ground and almost gave
ene the notion that the world was an endless land
scape stretched. upon rollers, which some invisible
gprites below were busy revolving for our especial
amusement. . . ' " . .
Then, as we floated along above the fields, in a
line with the Thames, toward Richmond, and looked
over the edge of the car in which we were standing,
(and which, by the by, was like a big "buck-basket,"
reaching to one's breast,) the sight was the most
exquisite visual delight ever experienced. The houses
directly underneath us looked like the tiny, wooden
things out of a child s box of toys, and the streets as
if they were ruts in thn ground; and we could hear
the hum of the voices rising from every spot we passed
over, faint as the buzzing of so many bees.
Far beneath, in the direction we were sailin"-, lay
tne suDuman neius; and ncre tne earth, with its tiny
hills, and plains, and streams, assumed the appear-
ance of the little colored plaster models of countries,
The roadways striping the. land were like narrow
brown ribbons, and the river, which we could see
winding far away, resembled a long, gray, metallic " I will bear these annoyances in view of the refresh
looking snake, creeping through the fields. The ing and luxurious respite of my hereafter." In 'op-
bridges over the '1 names were positively like planks;
and the tiny black barges, as they floated along the
stream, seemed no bigger than summer insects on the
water. The largest meadows were about the size of
green-baize table covers;- and across these we could
just trace the line of the Southwestern Railway, with

was insensibly wafting the balloon, lay the leviathan 1

over it, and reminding one of the fog of vapor that is

to the horizon on either side, but far away into the
distance, where, owing to the coming shades of
evening, and the dense fumes from the million chim
neys, the town seemed so blend into the sky.'so that
there was no distinguishing earth from heaven. The
multitude of roofs that extended back from the fore-
. ground was positively like a dingy red sea, heaving
in bricken billows, and the seeming waves rising up
one after the other till the eye grew wearied with
following them. Here and there we could distinguish
little bare green patches of parks, and occasionally
make out the tiny circular enclosures of the principal
' squares, though, from the height, these appeared
scarcely .bigger than wafers, further, the fog of
smoke that overshadowed the giant town was pierced

dome, now of about the same dimensions as a bell.

whole as the birds of the air look down upon it, and
see it dwindled into a mere rubbish-heap to contem
plate from afar that strange conglomeration of vice,
avarice, and low cunning, of noble aspirations and
humble heroism, and to grasp it in the eye, in all its
incongrous integrity, at one single glance to take,
as it were, an angel's view of that huge. town where,
perhaps, there is more virtue and more iniquity,
more wealth and more want, brought together into
one dense focus, than in any other part of the earth
to hear the hubbub of the restless sea of life and

The Merchant's Cleek! Dr. J. V. Alexander
has- recently written an admirable little -volume,
happily entitled 4 The Merchant's Clerk. The follow
ing extracts are taken from it.
Parents, employers, and senior associates will in
culcate upon you tire daily duties of your calling;
indeed you already know them ; which may show you
that the grand desideratum is not by-laws but inward
principle. Nevertheless, take kindly a few disinter
ested counsels Irom one who is no longer young, bvt
who has long cherished a warm sympathy with those
, who are beginning life. Under the general deter
mination to do vour dutv. beware of earlv diserusts.

whether towards persons or work. All new trials are
burdensome; all beginnings are vexatious, lie that
ascends a ladder must take the lowest round. All
who are above were once below. " An two men ride
of a horse, one must ride behind." To consider any
thing menial, which belongs to the career of training,
is to be a fool. The greatest philosophers and the
greatest commanders have passed through toils as
humble and as galling. These hard rubs are an in
dispensable part of education, and it is best to have
the worst first. It is not denied that not only the
younger clerks, but all the employes, have toils both
irregular and excessive, in those large houses which
drive a brisk business with remote customers. This
pressure is of course worst in jobbing and auction
houses, and in what are called the busy seasons. The
heart of the young auction-clerk often fails him, on
Xn tempi a ting the piles of goods which come in from
the importing and commission house;?, and which
must be arranged for inspection and sale against next
morning; with the knowledge that he must work
.through the ungracious task of re-arranging and
- delivering after the hours of sale. But what then ?
other and better men have lived through the like.
Cheer up on cold winter mornings, when you blow
. your fingers as you walk briskly down Broadway, or
at late hours of packing, invoicing, or replacing goods.
Cheer tip at the thought that -it will make a man of
you. Perhaps you remember Latin enoufrh to nunte
the words in Virgil, " All this it will be swe'et to re
, .member hereafter." Recall enough of history, to
" think of what Roman and especially Spartan boys
. were accustomed to bear. ' Think of the whaling voy
age; inmK oi me morning arm at West roint; think
' of the ignominy of giving up prospects in life out of a
fcttle girlish disgust.

to keep the cares and vexations of the world to them-

Duty is Pleasure, Whatever comes of it, put
your shoulder to the wheel for a few months; by that
time some 01 tne rough places will nave become plain.
Wear the yoke gracefully. Every moment of this
weariness and trouble will turn out to your lasting
profit, especially in regard to character. There are
certain things which you will be ashamed to class
among hardships. Such are early rising, which you
should practise for pleasure and longevity, as well as
religion ; exercise in the open air, or on your feet;
hard work, tending towards knowledge of business;
punctuality, without which . you can never attain
wealth or honor; and tedious employment in affairs
which secure you confidential regard. In all these
temptations to discontent, let me venture an observa-
tion or me, wnicn i comess n cosi me majiy years to
comprehend. Uneasiness in the youthful mind arises
from a fallacy that we may express thus: "Work
now, but rest and pleasure hereafter." Not merely
the clerk, but the millionaire, thus deludes himielf
position to all this, let me declare to. you, that these
hours, or days, or .years of repose, when the mighty
oppressive hand of the giant Business is let up, will
be none the less sweet, for your having taken a genu-
me satisfaction in your work as you went along. You
will not make the journey better, if, like famous pil-

MENT, - "WASmxGTos, D. C.j March 5, 1856.
NEWSPAPERS throughout the United - States will
render a service, in our opinion, to persons having corres
pondents in the Pacific region by giving conspicuous place to
the subjoined circular in their respective columns.

To persons mailing Letters Jor California and the Te ri
fortes of Washington and Oregon Thousands of letters sent
to the Pacific coast become dead letters. To remedy this evil .
the Post Office Department, under the authority of Congress, has
adopted as an auxiliary to its operations the following plan for
simultaneously publishing at each and every post office in the
Pacific region, in a list called M Pacific Mail List," the names of
persons to whom letters have been sent by mail to post offices in
California and the Territories of Washington and Oregon. By
this system, a letter may be sent to any post office in the Pacific
region for a person whose location is unknown, save the mere
fact that he is somewhere in California or the Territories of
Oregon and Washington ; if the letter be nubishl in th. Pnrfir-
Mail List, its ultimate reception by the person for whom it is
intended will be rendered highly probable. To enable those who
may desire to extend to their Pacific correspondents the advan
tages thus offered, the following illustration is given :
Suppose it is wished to send to the Sacramento post office a
letter for George Wilson, who emigrated to California from Pike
county, Missouri, but it is feared that he may have changed his
location, and hence may not receive the letter. In this case.
direct the letter to George Wilson, (late of Pike county, Missouri)
Sacramento, California. Then, in order to publish the letter in
the Pacific Mail List, copy the address of the letter upon a
piece of paper or card, and enclose the card, together with a
three-cent postage stamp, in an envelope to the Pacific Mnil
List, N. Y.-IX'pcmifc the i4or, - ttsiLaly in the. .ceaiLlQr Cali
fornia, and at the same time drop the envelope, containing the
card to publish the letter, in the mail for New York, from
the address on the card thus received at the New York post office,
the name, George Wilson, will be entered in its appropriate piuce
in the Pacijie Mail List, which is printed and f ent by mall to
each and every postmaster in California and the Territories of
Oregon and Yv ashmgton, and by them posted iu a conspicuous
place in their respective offices. The list thus being distributed
over the entire Pacific region, George Wilson may at once learn
from it that a letter for him bus been sent to the Sacramento
post eTice. No person of a shiul.ir name will receive this k-tter,
for the address on it points out thut it Is intended fur GeorKo
Wilson, late of Pike county, M issovrri. Thus mas letters will
be received that would otherwise lie transmitted to the dead
letter office. -
The envelopes containing the advertising cards sent to the
Pacific Mail List, New York, pay postage l;ke ordinary mail
matter, and must be pre-paid. The addresses of letters copied
on the pieces of paper or cards shouid bo written in a plain and
distinct manner. The three-cent postage stamp enclosed in the
envelojies defray the expenses of publication, and must not be
pasted to the cards, but siniplj enclosed with them. In the ab
sence of postage stamps, three-cent coins may be substituted.
It is believed that this circular lias been drawn uj so ex-jJicitly
as to" require no explanations ; but should this prove not to le
the case, "postmasters will take notice that all interrogatories
must be addressed to the Pacific Mail List, New York, and not
to the department.
The first of this series of lists will accompany the mail of May
5th, aud will be forwarded by each succeeding mail.

Mr. Woods has my authority to put his plan, as above, in
operation ; but no responsibility is assumed by the department ;
and all correspondence in regard to this arrangement must be
addressed to the Pacific Mail List, New York. That the public
may avail itself or the advantages thus offered, postmasters are
requested to give the circular a conspicuous place in their res
pective offices. JAMES CAMPBELL,
