' The route 1 would rerommend as tbe

v rtiser, of January 18th, 1808, would
be to follow the Asiatic store from I!ehr
ing's Straits as far as Cafe Kekurnai, or
Cape Scbelag?koi. Tbe ice which melts
earlier near tbe shore, and the milting of
the snow upon the land, fuming innumer
able 6treams of water, impels tbe ce from
the shore, leaving an open lane (f water,
through which a ship can pass without
difficulty, especially when ass'sled by
steam in calms and adverse wind). After
passing Cape Jakao, there being no land
to the north, the ice is driven from the
shore by these streams, aad scattered in
fragments in the open 6ea seen by VTrnn.
gel, with sufficient openings for the safe
navigation of a ship. From some point
between Cape Kekurnai and Cape Sche
lagskol, tbo coursp would be from nortbTto
northwest, as the ice would permit, nntil
north of tbe Laachow Islands, when the
effects of the current from the rivers" of
Northern Asia would be stnsibly felt.
From thence a course directly towards the
Pole, or Spitzbergen, a3 njight appear
most feasible, should be pursupd.
" After getting to the north of the Laa
chow Islands, should n vessel be obstrncted
by ice, tbe current, though tot so strong
as that found north or Spitztergen and in
Baffin's Bay, would eventually carry the
vessel through one of these channels into
the Atlantic. In the event pf any disas
ter to the vessel, the chances for the pre
servation of the lives of those on board
nre much greater than by the route east
from Behring.'s Straits, as from the River
Kolyma to the westward, Russian settle
ments are found near the months of all the
rivers, where assistance can be procured.''
A letter by Capt. Long, addressed from
Honolulu to the President of ha French
Geographical Society, under dite of June
5th, 1863, is a confirmation of the preeed
incc details, and contains very precise indi
cations about the state of th eea north of

favorable to Polar explorations, the sea,
near the shore, from Behong's Straits
eastward, being free from ice. When we
were 40 miles north of Cape Schelagskoi,
no sign of ice could be seen to t'te north
ward and westward. The weather was
clear and beautiful, but tie absence of
whales making my cruise cnprufitable, I
returned, and came within ten miles of
the point where Wranjel had seen an
open Eea in the month of March. North
of that point there were some pieces of
floating ice, scattered here and there,
through which f believe a ship would have
been able to go far without meeting any
obstacle. With a well-equipped ship, I
wonfd not have hesitated to try the pass

but with my ship not fitted to bear the
pressure of ice, and provisions for only
four months, it wonld have been more than
Capt. Long insists npon the well-ascertained
fact that the north- and northwest
winds blow before them, towards Cape
Kortli, heavy -fogs, which seem to indicate
a higher temperature and the existence of
an open sea to the northward.
This is tbe latest state of the question
according to the last accounts, and a brief
exposition or all tue tacts connected with
the mysterious regions surrounding the
North Pole. They seem to justify the
hope that before long a bold and fortunate
ship will trace her wake in that unknown
sea, discover lands that are, perhaps, in

IVapolcoa at Biarritz.
The Emperor and Empress, with the
Piince Imperial, will be leaving Biarritz
now in a few days. The season here closes
about the middle of October, and many of
the' Paris shopkeepers having brunch es
tablishments here have already given no
tice of their intention to cloe on the 15th.
The Emperor, immediately before quitting
the South, usually holds a review of the
troop3 at Bayonne. This took place yes
terday. The "Emperor drove over to Ba
yonne in n basket carriage in the afternoon
with one Aide-de-camp," held the review,
and then drove back. It is interesting to
see the simple manner in which the Impe
rial family ruralize in their pretty little
bathing place. The Emperor and Empress,
sometime3 accompanied by one or more at
tendants, and sometimes alone, dressed in
tbe everv-dar attire of ordinary citizens.
aro to be seen daily walking through the I
town, and driving about the country. They i
aro not molested, as our Queen was at I
Brighton, by a gaping crowd of butchers'
boys ami bakers, but tbe people merely sa
lute them with respect when they recog
nize the imperial party, which to the unin
itiated is not distinguishable from a family
of ordinary visitors. Those who recognize
them feel that it would bo out of place to
cheer the Emperor and Empress, who have
bought Biarritz as a place of quiet retire-'
ineut. Yesterday morning I saw the Em- 1
perornnil Empress walk down to the bath
ing establishment. The Emperor here left
his Imperial consort, who remained seated
on the sands watching the bathers. Sim
was most affable, kissing her lady friends
as they came np to greet her.und receiving
all her acquaintances with warmth. She
entered into an animated conversation
with those around her. and spoke With
graceful gesture. The Emperor was dressed
in a blue frock coat, and wore a round felt
deer-stalking hat. He walked with a stout
stick, on which he was wont to' lean. His
Majesty looked triste, and signs are begin
ning to appear that lie has arrived at the
grand climacteric I wijh I could describe
minutely for your lady readers the costume
or the Empress, but being a bachelor I can
excuse mjwlf lor not being acquainted
with the different parts of ladies' attire;
suffice it, however, to say that the Empress
wore a deep mauve woolen dress, quietly
trimmed, aud a dark, hat entwined with n
green creeper, the end of which hung neg
lige down the back. In walking she had
in her left band a white parasol lined with
green, and in the right she carried a' walk
ing stick, which she kept in constant use.
Doubtless the high heels of tbe boots which
the ladies here wear about two inches in
length have necessitated -the use of a
walking stick ; but. be this as it may, the
simple fact of tho Empress carryinga walk
ing stick has made, its use fashionable. A
new kind of parasol has been invented, and
is carried by many of the ladies it com
bines both walking stick and parasol. The
stick, which is stout and usually white, is
made very long and tipped with iron, and
U used to assist in walking. As wo all
know, in France the ladies and gentlemen
bathe together, but us all are clad in cos
tumes de bain, there is not so much to re
mark in this as in the fact that the ladies
are here bathed and ducked by men, in
stead of, as in England, by old women.
The bathing-men, 1 ninst say, however, do
their work well, supporting their charges
in the water, turning them on their backs,
assisting them to float, etc The costumes
da bain of the ladies are very picturesque
and of all colors. There is as much taste
required in the selection aud trimming of a
costume de bain as in that of a ball dress;
for while bathing is going on ladles and
gentlemen assemble on the beach to ad
mire tbe taste displayed in the different
costumes. The young Prince Imperial is
to be seen every afternoon in tbe grounds
of the Villa Eugenia, the Imperial resi
dence, playing at "prisoners's base" with a
group of boys of his own age, sons of the
visitors here. The young prince is a gen
tlemanly boy, and seems to understand his
little companions. In his faccol am unable
to trace any resemblance to either of bis
parents. Cor. London Herald, Oct. 9.
Cocldn't see tiie "Point. Bill A ,
like n.uny a smarter man, labored under
the delusion that he possessed a splendid
voice, and "oft in the stilly night," but
more frequently in broad day, he startled
the echoes of the surronnding woods and
bills with what he called "delicious notes"
of his favorite Annie Laurie, or, in his
words, "Annio Lotvry."
One day Bill was down on the river
bank, among the laurel, polishing his gun,
working away in utter oblivion of all the
world, encouraging himself with an occa
sional snatch of song," when he was sud
denly bailed from the other side of tbe
stream with :
- Hallo, over there 1"
" Hallo, yourself I" answered Bill, peer
ing through the thicket, when he saw tbe
brigade quartermaster, who continued :
"Seen any mules about heref
' No." replied Bill, testing! ; " 1 don't
keep your cussed mules."
"I suppose not." retorted the quarter
master drily; "only I heard ad I of a
braying over there, and I thought it might
be them ; but I find it is only a stray
The officer rode off. and Bill, scratching
his head for awhile, observed :

To stake cows cite MILK. A writer
who says that his cow gives all the milk
that is wanted in a family of eight persons
and from which was mado two hundred
and sixty pounds of butter in the year,
gives the following as his treatment : If
you desire to get a large yield of rich milk,
give your cow, three times a day, water
slightly warm, slightly salted, in which
bran has been stirred at tbe rate of one
quart to two gallons of water. Yoa will
bnd, if yon have not found this by daily
practice, that your cow will gain twenty
firo per cent, immediately after this treat
ment, and she will become so attached to
tbe diet as to refuse to drink clear water
when very thirsty, but this mesa she will
drink almost at any time, and ask for more.
The amount of this drink is an ordinary
pail-ful each time, morning noon and night.
Your animal will then do her best at dis
counting the lacteal. Four hundred fis of
butter are oftened obtained from good
stock, and instances are- mentioned where
the yield was given at a higher ors.'r

the bottom of tho Atlantic, between New
Foundland and tbe Azores, at a depth of
more than 10,000 feet, or two miles, by the
help of his sounding apparatus. The speci
mens were sent for examination to Ehrcn
berg, orBcrliu.and to BAlley, of West Point,
and those able microscopists found that this
deep sea mud was almost entirely composed
of the skeletons of living organism, the great
er proportions of those being just like the
Clobbrerana: already known to occur in chalk.
Thus far, the work had been carried on sim
ply in tbe Interest of science; but Lieut.
Brooke's method of sounding acquired a high
commercial value when tbe enterprise of lay
ing down tbe teleeraph cable between Great
Britain and tbe United Slates was undertak
en; for it became a matter of Immense im
portance to know, not only tbe depth of the
sea over tbe whole line along which the cable
was to be laid, but tbe exact nature ot tbe
bottom, so as to guard agulnst the chances of
cutting or fraying the strands of that costly
rope. The Admiralty consequently ordered
Captain Dayman to ascertain tbe depth of tbo
whole line of the cable, and to bring back
specimens of tbe bottom, in former davs,
such a commaud aa-.hls mi-rbt have sounded
very much like one of the impossible things
which the young prince lu the fairy tales Is
ordered to do before ho can obtain the band
ot tbe princess. However, In the months of
Jane and July. 1S47, Captain Dayman per
formed tbe task assigned to him with great
precision, without, so far as I know, bavin);
met any reward of that kind. Tbe speci
mens or Atlantic mud which he procured,
were sent to me to be examined anil reported
npon. The result of all these operations Is,
that wc know the contours and nature of
the surfacu-soil covered by the North Atlan
tic for a distance of 1700 miles from east to
west, as well as we know that of any part of
the dry land. It is a prodigious plain, one of
the widest and most even plains In the world.
If the sea were drained off, vim mluht drive
a wagiin nil the way from Vulcntla, on the
west coast of Ireland, to Trinity Bay. In New
Foundland. And, except upon one sharp in
cline, about 200 miles from Valentia, I am
not quite sura that it would even be necessa
ry to put tbe skid on, so "gentle are the as
cents and descents upon that lon route.
From Valentia the road would be down hill
for about 00 miles to the point where the
bottom is uow covered by 1700 fathoms of
sea water. Then wonld come the central
plain, more than 1000 miles wide, the inequal
ity or which would be hardly perceptible,
though the depth of water upon It varies
from 10,000 to 13,000 feet ; and there are places
In which Mount Blanc might be sunk with
out showing its peak above water. Beyond
this, tbe ascent on the American side com
mences and gradually leads for about 00
miles, to tbe New Foundland shore. Almost
the whole of the bottom ofthls central plain
(which extends many hundred miles in a
north and south direction) is covered by a
tine mud, which, when brought to tbe sur
face, dries into a grayish-white friable sub
stance. Ton can write with this on a black
board, if you are so inclined, and to the eye
It is quite like very soft, grayish chalk. Ex
amined chemically, it proved to be composed
almost wholly of carbonate of lime; nnd if
you mako a section of it In the same way as
that of a piece of chalk Is made, and view it
with tbe microscope, it presents innumerable
globlgerna;, embedded in the granular mat
rix. Thus this deep sea mud is substantially
chalk. I say substantially, because there are
a great many minor differences; but as these
havo no bearing upon the question imme
diately before us which Is the nature of the
globicrns of the chalk it Is unnecessary to
speak of them. Prof. Ilanley.

conflicting, but tbe most probable accounts
report H passengers, including 18 ladies aad
7 officers and eabiefcrew lost, while only four
out of twenty two deckhands are known to
be saved. The accident is attributed to a
mistake in the whistler. The United Stale!

says he has no doubt that a continuance of
the Freedmen Bureau in those States sot yet
reconstructed would not be of benefit to tbe
freedmen, but don't think its continuance
absolutely secessary or adequate without
other aid to protect the lires and secure them
political rights. In many parts of the lata
slave States it is difficult for a colored man
to get jaitice it the inferior Courts. In many
counties their rights are positively, disregard,

such as only time eaa eradicate. In the
