Tbe jreat event of the day la tlu ciij is the ar
Z rital of General U. S, Grant lis Undrd on Sat
urday Iat from the Ctty of 7A:io. which arrived
fa U harbor at 6 o'clock la the afternoon. The
. welcome accorded to him after his extended tour
around the world waa projected on a acale of mag
niflcenee never before attempted in America. At

till leaves the aubject anexbtuated I despair con.
rejlag to your readers la a letter aoy adequate
idee, of the enthusiastic reception given General
Grant an bU return to bis native land. A marine
proceeeion of Steamships, steamboats, tugs, vuchts
and other craft to conduct the City tf Tokio from
the oeean to the wharf was arranged. A land pr
CtaioQ from the wharf through the principal
atreeta to th- Palae Hotel waa also Inlly plantird
and corritd out. The decoration of the tr-t-U
and buiMingn of the city was the 4ib of Jul mag
nified mny lirnrt. A triumphal arch was rrected
acroas New Montgomery atrert from the Grand to
the Palacw that rclipiwd any previous attrmpi ot
this character, balutes, bells, steam-nbiatlrs. fire
werks, electric lights and all such things were
got in readineas to do honor to tbe occasiou.
For two days tbe people were kept in an rxcite-
meot of expectation. Buafara waa partially sus
pended while people decorated stores and build
ings with tbe red white and blur, and liatt-urd and
watched and watched and liatened lor the Drat

and whistles iu tbe city going in m joyous an
nouncement that tbe Tokio was sighted. At fif
teen minutes past 3 o'clock Saturday afternoon
just as tbe reception committee bad decided, alter
a heated diacoaaion, not to parade on Sunday.
If Gen. Grant arrived on that day. the bells sound
ed tbe alarm. Tbe Coomitlee adjourned with
out ceremony, and each one started lor bis bat
and the street. Three hours time waa given for
every thing to be got in readiness). In a abort
time the Bay was covered with crafts gaily deck
ed out and crowded with people.
Every body In Sun Fiancisco and Oakland bo
could turned oui into tbe streets of the city, or
climbed tbe bills tc see tbe incoming fleet. Tbe ma
rine procession froia tbe Golden Gate to Market
street wharf, with the huge lour masted steamship
dry of Tokio at tbe bead, was a very pretty sight.
03 tbe wharf the Tokio came to anchor and the
t distinguished gnest of tbe city wss placed on an
' Oakland Ferry Boat and brought into tbe slip at
Market Street. Here be was met by Mayor Bry
ant who piesented him an address tendering bim
the freedom of the city. By this time it was dark
and the whole of this city and Oakland wss iu tbe
streets. Never before was there seen such
crowd of eager enthusiastic people as filled tbe
streets oa that occasion- The procession was well
planned and organized and with General Grant in
a 6-borse barouche with Mayor Bryant be was
conducted from the wharf through Market. Mont
gomery and Kearney streets to tbe Palace Ilotcl

cannons, tbe ringing of bells and tbe illumination

The endcbanck or ats. grant.
The endurance of Grant is something marvel
ous to witness. Tbe welcome and hospitality that
( forced pon bim by all classes of people, organ
izatioos. officials and municipalities is enough to
kill an ordinary man. But perbaps wben we re
flect that Grant has now bad two years experience
at this sort ot tbiox in every conceivable manner
around the world, bis ability to endure is under
stood. In the one and same day Grant will take a

As yotjr readers are by this time aware, and as
I hinted in my last letter might be the case. Geo.
C Perkins was elected Governor by a majriry of
20.000 votes. The various parties have reason to
be somewhat satisfied witit the result of the ex
citing campaign, and to feel compensated for the
large expenses Incurred by each, lor tbe successes
are divided among all tbe paities. The Republi
cans however have occasion lor tbe mort jollifica
tion a they elected the bead of the ticket and
probably control tbe Legislature. In the city the
Workingmen's Candidates were many ol them suc
cessful, including the Mayor, who was helped in by
Do Yoang'a pistol. The tickets voted in this city
were well calculated to tax the time and patience
of tbe scratching class of voters. They were three
feet long, and contained 42 names, and were offer
ed to the pnblic by tour contending parties.
Eaeb ticket was designated by some device at tbe
bead. The Woikingmen's tickrt. (or instance, bad

Southern Virginia is without a parallel in the
history of the civilized world.
The South will be likely to remember that
now General Grant is tho only living man who
can solve tbe Southern question. His patriotism
is not conSned to any locality. It spreads Irom
tbe Atlantic to the Pacific, from the St. Lawrence

will not result in lavor of grants to missionaries.
Tbe British Residents will be instructed to advise
the chiefs, but to exercise no authority over tbem.
If the chiefs disregard the terms of tbe agreement,
the Residents will report their conduct, but will

The cost of the Paris police force for 1878 was
about 800,000. There is an effective force of
7695 persons employed in the task of maintaining
order. The budget of the municipal police was
within a fraction of 560,000, to which must be
added a sum of 20.000 for the inspection of the
markets, and a further sum ot 00,000 for the

The National of France publishes the details of
a wonderful gastronomical feat performed by two
Hayti negroes who were recently passing through
Paris. They bet lOOOf. that tbey would eat
without stopping for six hours, and won easily,
sitting down to table at noon, and not rising be
fore half past six. In the long interval they suc
ceeded in consuming eight soles au ffratin; twelve
lamb cutlets, a joint of roast veal weighing 8
lbs., three kilogrammes or asparagus, and an
omelette of twelve eggs, besides a Dutch cheese,
12 lbs, of bread, and 15 bottles of wine.
Longfellow has recently written an interesting
letter to a governess at Chicago, which has found
its way into the American papers. Therein he
says: To those who ask how I can write "so
many things that sound as if I were as happy as
a boy," please say that there is in this neighbor
hood, or neighboring town, a pear-tree planted by
Governor Endicott 200 years, ago and that it still
bear fruit not to be distinguished from the young
tree flavor. I suppose the tree makes new wood
every year, so that some part of-it is always
young. Perhaps that is the wny with some men
when they grow old ; I hope it is so with me. I
am glad to hear that your boys and girls take so
much interest in poetry. That is a good sign,
for poetry is the flower and perfume of thought,
and a perpetual delight, clothing the common
place of life " with golden exhalations of the
De Scrfa Pinto, a Portuguese, has just retraced
tbe line of the first expedition of Livingstone who
went up from Cape Town, crossed the great
Southern desert, and then turning westward
reached the coast of Africa, the first white man
to cross the interior or the continent. Pinto,
starting from the west coast, pushed his way in
land, armed bis party by repairing some aban.?
doned rifles Cameron left in his track three years
ago, fought his way to the Zambezi, and after
measnring the great falls Livingstone discovered
and finding them 555 feet high, went south near
ly perishing in the desert, but finally reaching
the Transvaal. The most remarkable discovery
made by Pinto was of a race with features like
the Hottentots, but white and with no hair,

De Quincey's "Confessions."
No picture of the pleasures or the pains of
opium-eating has ever been so vividly drawn aa
that of De Quiucey in bis ( Confession of an
Opium Eater." His reminicsences are rarely
felicitous in style indeed, nothing which he has
written has so much ot his elegant inspiration.
They miss no touch, stroke or shade of color,
essential to a complete realization of the subject.
But little of his exquisite description can be
given here. Of wl at we may call the moral
effect of opium, he says :
Wine robs a man of his self-possession ; opium
invigorates it. Wine unsettles and
clouds the judgment. Opium gives
simply a temper to the moral feeling, a vital
warmth, which is approved by the judgment.
ana winch would probably always accompany a
bodily constitution of primeval or ante diluvian
Men shake hands, 6wear eternal friendship and
shed tears, no mortal knows why; and tbe sen
sual creature is clearly uppermost. But the ex
pansion of the benincr feelings incident to opium
is no febrile access, but a healthy restoration to
that state which the mind would naturally re
cover upon the removal of nny dcepseated irrita
tion of pain that had disturbed and quarreled
with the impulses of a heart originally just and
Proceeding a little further we take at random
a few passages which illustrate the increase and
diminution of the habit:
Tbe late Duke of used to Bay, Next Fri
day, by the blessing ol Heaven, 1 purpose to be
drunk ;" and in like manner I used to fix before
hand how often within a given time, and when, I
would commit a debauch of opium. This was
seldom more than once in three weeks, for at that
time I could cot have ventured to call every day,
as I did afterward, for " a class of laudanum
negus, warm and without sugar. No ; as I
have said, 1 seldom drank laudanum at that time
more than once in three weeks this was usually
on a Tuesday or a Saturday night my reason for
which was this : In those days Grassini sang at
tbe opera, and her voice was delightful to me
beyond all that f had ever heard. I know not
what may be the state of the opera house now,
having never been within its walls for seven or
eight years ; but at tbat time it was by much
tbe most pleasant place of public resort in Lon
don lor passing an evening. Five shillings
admitted one to the gallery, which was subject
to far less annoyance than the pit of tbe theaters.
The orchestra was distinguished by its sweet and
melodious grandeur from all English orchestras,
the composition of which, I con less, is not accep
table to my ear, from the predominance of the
clamorous instruments and the absolute tyranny
of the violin. The choruses were divine to hear,
and when Grassini appeared in some interlude,
as she often did, and poured forth her passionate
soul as " Andromache," at the tomb of Hector,
etc, 1 question whether any Turk, of all that
ever entered the paradise of opium-eaters, can
have had half the pleasure 1 had.
For it seemed to me as if when first I stood at
a distance and alool from the uproar of life, as if
the tumult, the fever and tbe strile were suspen
ded, a respite granted from the secret burdens of
the heart, a sabbath of repose, a resting from

My studies have now been long interrupted. I
cannot read to myself with any pleasure, hardly
witn a moment s endurance. ' " '
tor nearly two vears i Deueve mat i read no
book but one, and I owe it to tbe author, in dis
cbarge of a great debt of gratitude, to mention
what that was. lhe eublimer and more passion
ate poets l still read, as 1 nave said, by snatches
and occassionally. Mathematics,
for instance, intellectual philosophy, etc., were
all become insupportable to me ; 1 shrunk from
them with a sense ol powerless and infantine
feebleness tbat gave me an anguish the greater
from remembering the time when 1 grappled
with them to my own hourly delight.
Hitherto the human face had fixed often in my
dreams, but not despotically nor with any special
power of tormenting. But now that which I
have called the tyranny of the human face began
to unfold itself. Perhaps eouie part of my Lon
don life might be answerable for this. But that
as it may, now It was that upon the rocking
waters of the ocean the human face began to
appear; the sea appeared paved with innumera
ble faces upturned to the heavens laces implor

thousands, by myriads, by generations, by cen
turies ; my agitation was infinite, my mind tossed
and surged with the ocean.
1 was stared at, hooted at, grinned at, chat
tered at by monkeys, by parroquets, by cocka
toos. 1 ran into pagodas, and was fixed for cen
turies at the summit or in secret rooms ; I was
the idol, I was the priest, I was worshipped, I was
sacrificed. 1 fled from the wrath of Brama
through all the forest of Asia; Vishnu hated me;
Seeva laid wait for me. I came suddenly upon
Isis and Osiris ; I hud done a deed, they said,

with mummies and sphinxes, in narrow chambers
at the heart of eternal pyramids. 1 was kissed
with cancerous kisses by crocodiles, and laid con
