The Cincinnati Commercial translates the
follow iDg account of a visit to Charles Dickena
tor Hans Christian Andersen:
' 'Dii kpn lmd written to tne in a
letter which I received in Pauiuark, 'I hav
lust fiuihed rn.v new work, and am now a f
man. We shall, therefore, be together th(J
tinje, and can play cricket on the law (1 , ,at
our intercourse was bouww Mt Uli
rupted, for on the day pr,vUnu to niy
arrival, the humorist aud plTwriht, Puu-
ln Jerroia, uaa aieo, a.t he tud fail to
ta lieart-luoeu wife, 'bioken will take cr
of you when I '.n deal.' And, in f.ict, li.:keiH
did take care of the widow. 1U collect i
several thoncand poiupu for her, and ltivmti
this capital so that the interest sutlioed for her
wants. Dickens founded a committee of men,
beariafl names no If ns illustrious than his own,
such as Uulwer, Thackeray, and Ma irealy,
aud a programme was drawn up for miking
inoaey in dill'erent ways, and for noble pur
poes. Jt is well known that Diokwusj pos
geAPes wonderful talents as au actor; he has
rftabli.-hed a small amatenr stae at his
rotise, where he Riveg dramatic representa
tions, in conjunction with soini of tlw
Hjemliers of Lis family and Reveral intimate
f.'ieiida. Now, some performances were to lu
piven at high rates of admissioii; besides,
Pickens and Thackeray engaged to deliver
pome lectures, for which Diokeus, on his p irt,
selected one of his Christmas stories. Tiiny
and labor wrre required to carry all this iuto
ell'ect. There were days wheu 1 saw him write
and forward twenty letters, all of which he
did with an eagerness and joy as if it wer-4
child's play. The ouly thitijr tht grieved me
in this respect was that it phorteue I and
limited our intercourse; for, owiii ti th-se
joT.iirs. he had to go repeatedly to Lou-Ion aul
itay there for whole days.
'"'When I ftnivdd at (iadshill the family had
not yet been two weeks at their new ootiutry
Beat; both the environs and all drives were
new to them. Meanwhile 1 myself noon found
ont the most attractive points, aud to one of
them, the summit of U.idshill, I conducted
Dickens and his family. Our way led across
tbe broad high-road on which, opposite to
Dickens' villa, there lies atavrn, ou the faded
sigu of which Falstttll aud Prince Henry, and
ou the reverse a scent? from the Marry Wicc.it
of 'intl.-r ure represented. From tne tavern
a ravine b-tweeu live hedges led up to a
group of pleasut houses, ad two-stonel,
aud their walls beautiiully clad with viues
and creepers; long, ne-it white curtaius
hung iu the windows; the h'gheat home was
watched by au old bliu 1 do,; cows aud sheep
w re grazing ou the meadows, and ou this
hig'ue.it point there rose au obelisk. The
whole monument was cracked, aud the lirst
gust of wind might upset it. The inscription
was no longer distinctly legible, but we saw
that the uiouuineut hai beeu erected iu hou ir
of an excellent country gentleman who had
died many, mauy years aro. Ioairnvich as I
was the first to lead Di keus to this poiat, he
afterwards called the place, jociilaily, 'liana
Cb.rit3ti.in Auderseu's mouiitipiut.'
''AV'iihoat auy pievious practice
in speaking English, and bearing it spoken, I
understood Iroui the very first all that Dick
ens said to me. Whenever I hesitated, he re
peated the idea in another form; and no one
caught my meaning quicker than he did.
Danish aud Kugli.ih are so wonderfully similar
that we often were astonished at it, and when,
at times, lwas at a loss to lind tbe right word,
Pickens begged me to name the Danish word,
and we otien found that it was precisely the
the name as in English.
"When I pcquued greater faruilii'.rity with
the language, 1 longed more (in I more to con
verse on topics other thau those of every-day
Occurrence; I longed to express my feelings,
and find iu the foreign language words as
natural to me as tliOse of my mother tongue. I
felt more and more at home; even the sm tiler
children of the house begau to understaud me;
nay, the smallest of them, who, wheu I asked
him, on th first day, if he liked iu-, said, very
In.nestly, lI Will put you out of the window,'
assured me now, with a einiling facs, tliat, he
would 'put me in again.' Dickens ha I no
lens thau nine childreu, tvvo growu
daughters, Mary aud Kate, aud seven
sons: Charles, Walter Lan lor, Francis
G-oltrey, AKred Tennyson, Sidney
Sn ith, Henry Fielding, aud El ward Lyttou
liulwer. Tlie two eldest aud the two youngest
were at home; the oilier three came ou a visit
from 11 mlogne, in France, where they were at
a boarding i-chool. It was vacation time, aud
I soon saw them climb in the branches of
the large cedar trees, or play at cricket with
tteir other brothers and their father, all of
tbun iu fahirt-sleeves, ou the largo meadow
close to the garden; the ladies eat iu the tall
grass under the trees, peasant children peepd
over th.e hedge, and Turk, the watch dog, who
was fastened all night, had now beeu delivere I
from his chain and led the life of a free do,
While his long chain aud his keuuel were left
to a big, old raveu, who no doubt considered
himself a relative to the raven in 'lSaruaby
ltadge,' which, though stutled, still existed,
and was to be seen in the house.
"When in London, Charles Dickens lives in
Tavistock House. A grated gate separates the
yard aud garden from the lively street. In the
xear of the house extends a large garden, with
Beveral lawrjs and tall trees, aud imp trts a
rural appearance to the whole in the mi 1st
of tmioky and dusty Loudon. In the passage
leading from the street to the garden there
hung paiutiugs and copper-plates; here stood
Dicken' marble bust, lifrlike, young, aud
handsome, and the doors of the bed-chambers
and dining-room were surmounted by Tuor-Tvaldi-en's
has reliefs of Night aud Diy. On
the first lloor was a large library, with a lire
place and writing table, aui in the larg-i room
opeuing upon the garden, Dickens aud his
family and friends amusrd themselves iu the
winter by performing plays. The kitchen is
in the basement, aud tha bed-roums are ou the
'When I came to London, I was quartered
in a pleasant room opening upon the garden,
whence I saw, above the trees, the tower of
Loudou loom up or disappear, according to
the clearness of the weather. It was a long
way from here to the centre of business-life;
in one of the latter streets, opposite to the
Lyceum Theatre, is Dickens' literary olli :e,
where he attends to his duties as editor of the
most popular weekly published in Engl tud.
"l!ut lot us return to the country. The old
peasant whose cowh und sheep were gr.in
near the monument ou Oadshdl knew tfiat I
lived at Dickens' house, and that he brought
us every day lresh bread. 'They are excel
lent folks,' he said. 'You See that as sum as
you catch sight of the man aud his wife.'
They had spoken to him so kindly that tuy
had won his heart completwly. iyHH jitt
added, 'a few years since there lived quite
close to them a lady whom they callei the
Bwedlsh Nightingale.' It was Jenny Diul
who lad lived here. 'She was as kiul aud
hearty as Mr. Dickens.'
"1 repaired to the place where he Baid
Jenny Lind had lived; the windows were
painted, the door wb locVed.no one lived
here, the cage was empty, the night!ngale
Lad ilowu. Many thoughts aud reminiscences
Btole npou me; 1 never since passed that place
without a feeling of profound, sadness."

Bonie ' '"ion ltme reports vue resuu, oi
important iriais oi iron Biruciures
icable to land fortifications. They had
doited crat interest, and the attendance at
ShoeburyDess was very large. The structures
to be fired at were erected about 100 yards
within the low embankment protecting the
ground from the Thames, the front of the
works facing iulaud. The Plymouth Urget
and the other casemates were in the centre,
Hanked on either hand by the experimental
walls and plates.
The appearance of the larger structures was
massive aud imposing, but their effect was
somewhat marred by the large black surfaces
of iron wall being divided ott iuto squares by
white painted lines. The details of construc
tion were to a considerable extent hidden by
the close fitting ot the external parts; but
ample information was supplied on this point
by the exhibition of lithographed plans au I
sections ol the Btruotures, showing all their
parts in full detail, lied and blue lines were
ah o painted on the targets to iudicate the
places of the joints and other important fea
tures in tbe construction, and priutol descrip
tions, piepart-d lor the purpose, were circu
lated among the vi.- itors. Diagrams were also
exhibited, showing the various data of the
artillery, aud a notice of the gun, charge, aui
projectile was posted up before each r uind.
The chief object was the Plymouth shield,
and the only gun used, with the excepiiou of
two rounds from the American Itodman, waj
the largest lilted gun, viz., the twenty-three
ton gun, of twelve inches bore, carryiug a
Palliser pointed shot of (iUO prmuds. The
charges Were originally iuteuded to be such as
would represent the effects at distances of .KM
and KM'O yaids; but, as it was considered de
sirable to test the strength of the shield with
the full power of the guus, the lettering
charge of seventy-six puuuds of powder was
used every rouud.
There were in all eight rounds fired against
the shield, live of which were iirtoted against
the jart to the right of the porthole, strength
ened by an extra live-inch plate iu frout,
giving in this place twenty inches thickness of
iron. The other tlirm were lired at the thin
ner or filteeu iiu h side of the shield.
The lirst shot hit the live-inch strengthening
plnie about tlnee feet trom the ground au t
liiteen inches from the right baud edge, tear
ing open the narrov strip outside the shot.
One bolt was driven fewral inched inwards,
and the inside plates and the Vertical st in lard
btLind them were slightly bulged. The CUot
penetrated almut a toot aud broke up.
The second round was a shell of t'io same
weight from the miiw gun, with a bursting
charge of 14 Alb. Tnis sti uck about six inches
above the port, aud exactly on the lett edge of
the strengthening plate, so that hall the pro
jectile acted on this plate aud th- o'her part
on the thinuer part adjoining. Iu front no
damage was seen, but at the back it was foun i
that the horizontal iron "plauk" over tin
porthole was broken in t vo ou the right hau l
side of the port and partly thrust backwards.
The bolls near the part struck were strained,
bnt not bii ken. The shell did not bury itself
deep enough in the iron to do more mischief
than a shot, as the buropng charge exploded
in tiie n ar.
The third round wa-1 ft shot from the great
American 'Hodman" gnu, wbb a l.'i-iuch
bore, and a cat-irou round shot of 4.")U pounds
Weight. The usual charge in America tor this
(.unis 00 pounds, but, ai it is said to be some
times used wiih Km pounds, it was d-itm--ndned
to try it wiih its full power, and for
that purpose it Was loa lel with S.f.J pouui-jof
our powder, which tiom its great strength is
found (-quivaleut to .1 IK pounds American.
The shot struck the strengthening-plate about
15 inches Horn the bottom, and a little to the
light of the middle, not tar trom the shot of
the first roui d. It cracked the front plate,
staitrd another halt, aud bent the inside layer
of iron, doing altogether, but little damjge.
The shot rebounded, au I fell, much llatteu-id,
a tew feet in trout of the target, it was of
American make, aud appeared to be of excel
As the la-t shot was said to have grazed t'.io
prouud before arriving at the target, aul
tbereby to have loot some of its force, a se.) )iid
shot was filed Horn tue same gnu, also at th-j
Stiengilieuing-plate, wbii-h it struck live toet
high and one toot six inches from the left-ha .d
edge. It made an indent of eight or nine
inches, cracking the plate through to the edgw,
and knocking oil by the shock trom the right
baud corner a piece of plate alrea ly broken
by former mumls. The inner planks ue ir
the port hole were distorted, aud au upright
standard slightly bent. The shot struck ou a
Fpot where the plates were supported by oue
of these standards, aud which was, therefore,
a strong place; but the ell'ect of both time
rounds appeared so small lor the large charge
of powder as to give but au inditforunt opinion
of the power of this boas'ed American weapou
compared with our owu rillsd guns.
Korthelifih rouud the 12-inoh rifled gua
was resumed, and another shot was lired also
at the thickening plate. It struck about six
feet h'gh, and near the middle of the plate.
It penetrated thirteen inches aud broke a b.ilt,
doing also considerable damage behind. It
pushed out the middle layer ot iron, aud liroka
one of the hoiizontal planks of the internal
layer, a piece of which, weighing between two
hundred pounds and thiee hundred pounds
was violently projected about oue hundred
h-et to the i ear of the target.
The three remaining rounds were aimed at
the thinuer part of the target, reprwseuii-ig
what is ac'nally iu construction fr the forts,
and fifteen indies thick. It was iuteuded that
at least oue ot thee should hit a part between
the upright standard, where the plates were
unbacknl; but this was not accomplished,
eaih shot striking a place immediately in
front of the upright standards The sixtk
round was a solid shot, which penetrated
about ten inches, broke two bolts, and cause I
a bulge in both the back plates aud the stand
ards. The seventh round was a shell, which,
hko all the others, burst ouLude, and did little
further m:schief; and the eighth round was a
solid shot, that caused a large bnl,!0 in tins
rear, projecting several inches, aud opening
wiih a wide, Mar-shaped crack, the stanlird
also being cou.-ider.ibly bent, though not
This ended the diy'a practice. Tins Ply
mouth taiget had lecoiveil tile lire of eig'it
rounds, from the largest guns with the lull
baiteiiiig charges, and although it was a go.) I
deal pm l-hed in some parts, it had stood ou
the w hol-s very well. It, was not penetrt'e l
by any of the shot, nor had it eeasod to all rd
piotectiou. The worst feature of the day was
the piojection to the rear of the large mass of
iron in the tilth round, which would of course
have been a serious thing iu actual warfare.
The Moon and the Wrath gr. If any
maiked connection existed between the state
of the air aud the a-p t of the moon, it io3t
inevitably have forced itself unsought npon
the attention of meteorologists. In the weekly
return of births, deaths, aud marriages, issued
by the Uegistrar-tieneral, a table is given,
showing all the meteorological elements for
e.'ery day of the year, and a column is set
apait for noting the chances and positions of
the woou. These reports extend backward
nearly a quarter of a century. Here, then, is
a repertory ot data that ought to reveal at a
glance any such connection, and would cer
tainly have done bo had it existed. But no
constant relation between the moon eolu tuns
and those containing the instrument readings
has ever been traced. Our meteorological ob
servatories furnish continuous and unbroken
recorda of atmospherio variations, exteuding
over long series of year?; these afford still
more abundant means for testing the validity
of the lunar hypothesis. The collation has
frequently been made for epcial points in the
inquiry, aud certainly some connection has
been found to obtain between curtain positious
of the moon in her orbit and certain instru
mental averages; but so small are the ellects
traceable to lunar iullueuce that they are
almost inuapreciable among the grosser irregu
larities that arise from other and as yet unex
plained causes. Om r-a- Week.

From the A (chiton (Kansas) Cliamiion,
Kansas is the best stock-raising State in the
Union. Her broad aud fertile prairies offer
inducements and advantages to stock-raisera
that no other country can afford. There is no
better, surer, ner more rapid method of mak
ing uoney than stock-raiting. And nothing
will so much add to the material prosperity of
the hta'e as this business, systematically and
We can supply the Hast with, hundreds of
thousands of cattle every year; we ought to
supply the West with all the pork they ueed,
inste ad ol allowing them to depend npon the
Sates Fast of the Missouri. We are begin
ning to do the former we have, as yet, done
very little towards the latter. And this is
tbe interest to which, more particularly, wo
desire to call the attention of farmers, of mer
chants, of capitalists, and of the people gene
rally. We are every year shippiug immense droves
of Logs to St. Louis, Chicago, and other
points East. There they are slaughtered and
packed, and in the spring this same meat is
reshipped to Kansas, and from this State to all
prints West of us. There is no reason why
Buch a system should continue longer. Every
iuterest of the country protests against it. If
men in Chicago aud St. Louis can buy hogs in
Kansas, transport them by railroad or steam
boat to these places, kill and pack them, re
ship them to us iu the spring, aud make for
tunes out of the business, is it not strange
that those here w ho have money b) not turn
their attention to so Initiative a business; a
business which, by saving the cost of trans
portation for from twelve to lif-eon hundred
miles, must prove even more lucia' ive to our
own people than to those so far awty.
The c;ipilal to engage in such a bu-ineg3 can
bo readily obtained by any enterprising, en
ergetic business man. Ou the Fecurity such
a business allords, our banks, we are as.-mred,
would willingly advance the means. They
know that the business is a legitimate oue,
bicb, with all the advantages the country
affords tor its proseuutiou, cannot but prove
prolitablo. Aud we hope to see a number of
our merchants, capitalisi8,or speculators take
bold of this matter during the present season,
and make a beginning of what will some day
be one of the greatest business interest's iu the

A btter from Italy to au Koglish pip-sr days:
''Yon ai i aware that ot late jeats there has
been a very large importation of silk-worms'
eggs from Japan to Italy, with a view to re
pairing this ravages of disease among the
woiuis in tin's country. To a considerable ex
tent the plan has proved successful, although
the descendants 01 the Japanese by no meaus
invariably escape H least, in the second au t
third gtneratii n the luysteiious alllictiou
which has long played such havoc with one of
the most important and lucrative oi Italian
productions. Lattelly complaints have been
heard even of the eggs L-uported direct
from Japan. To all appearances they were of
good quality, but it seemed they were nat
prool against the prevailing epidemic. A cir
cular that has just beeu addressed to the Pre
sidents of Agricultural Commit'ees by the
Minister of Agriculture anil Commerce ac
counts otherwise for the deterioration. A sys
tem of fraud has been detected. The Minister
dcclaies it to have come to ids knowledge tint
a great number ot cases containing empty
papers of the kind in w hich lire Japanese egs
are usually sent have btoii rtctived by a Milan
"These papers are duly stamped and iu
scrited in Japanese; they bear the Custom
H nse maik usually put on them at Yed.io
on their way to the Yokohama market. The
Minister declares it beyoud a doubt that these
papers were intended to receive Italian eggs,
w hich would be sold to the public as genuine
Japanese thus discrediting the only eggs on
which is now based a hope of reviving sericul
ture in Ibis country. The discovery appears
to have been due to the refusal of certain Ja
panese houses to submit their papers of eggs
to the inspection and stamp of the Italian
agents and consuls in Japan. The Minister
promises great vigilance to defeat these
frauds, for, he adds, he has reason to be
lieve that other persons are on the alert, to
follow the example of the Milan house above
alluded to. According to an official publica
tion, iu lf-03 the total value of the cocoons
produced in the proviuces which now com
pose the kingdom of Italy was upwards of four
millions sterling. To obtain this there have
been imported fifty-six thousand one hundred
and twenty-nine kilogrammes of eggs, at a
coi-t of twenty four millions of francs, or nearly
a million sterling."
The Klavc Trade in Umzil.
A passage in Maximilian's "Uecolleotious of
Breail" has given rise to a somewhat spirited
controveisj in the columns of the I'uli Mail
(t'uzelle, to which a member of the .Brazilian
legatiou aud a former diplomatic representa
tive of the English Government in ltrazil are
tbe patties. The discussion arose out of the
following passage from Maximilian's book:
"It is true that many inllueucei 'por el
horordella lb-ma' will hold a little iuquiry on
the subject of smuggled slaves, but it leads to ,
no results. The slave-owners compel the !
suspected individuals (who naturally do not !
yet speak l'oituguese intell gihly, either for
good or tvil) to answer every question of the
judge by the word 'Miuas.' 'What is your '
name?' Auswer '.Min.is,' which is a very
common name among slsves. 'Where were !
you born 1" Answrr 'Miuas,' oue of tha
chief provinces of lirazil, but also ao import-
art negro tribe of Africa, which provides the !
Jiiaztiians witn tne best slaves. 'Where no

diamond aud gold miues from which is derived
a principal source of wealth of the couutry.
The judge, who is naturally also a slave
owner, notes the three 'Miuas,' shutd the pro
tocol, and the all air is settled to the satisl'c
tiou of all parties."
To this the Drazilian diplomat replies that
the occurrence alluded to must have happened,
if at all, in 1MI or lbtJO; that Mr. Christie,
tbe English diplomatic representative at
Difizil during that time, made no report of
any such occurrences, but reported an entire
cessation of the trade. Mr. Christie retorts
that the context of his report does not sustain
this alligation, and that the allusion wade by
Maximilian probably referred ta, events. nap.
inning before his (Mr. Christie's) official resi
dence in lirazil. The Brazilian CUarge d' Af
faires makes farther criticisms on Maximil
ian's statements, which are not very material.
The only important feature of the corres
pondence is the fact disclosed that the Brazil
ian government is anxious to clear itself from
any complicity with slave smuggling. This
is a cheering indication, at all events.
The (Uncial Period.
In a paper addressed to the Frenoh Aca
demy of Sciences, M. Villeneuve Flayose en
deavors to prove the following proposition:
"In the case of high chains of mountains, the
snow-line aud glaciers generally descend low
est where the moisture is greatest, aud where
consequently the warmth also is more con
siderable than at a higher elevation, sinco the
aqueous vapors there emit a larger proportion
of their latent caloric." This fact, already
verified in the Alps by M. Studer, is, our
author informs us, BtrtDgly characterized in
the Himalaya, where the snows on the side of
the equator descend twelve hundred yards
lower than on the opposite declivity. Under
our very eyes we may say, the glaciers of the
Alps follow the same rule; they extend duriug
rainy years and contract during the dry ones,
in which the mean temperature is often low
est. The quartemary period was generally
more humid than the present oue, the recent
upheavals 'having caused many surfaces to
emerge, which lormerly were covered with
water, and consequently concurred iu the for
mation of aqueous vapor. Hence the Alps,
surrounded by the vast lakes which at that
time covered tie surface of the basins
of the Durance, the llhoue,- the Saone, the
Loire, ELine, and others, received fifteen times
more steam than before, which accounts for
the enormous glaciers of the autediiuvian pe
riod, notwithstanding the higher average of
temperature then existing. An intense cold iu
the immediate vicinity of the glaciers was in
abrupt contact with a warm temperature at
tbe surface of the waters. This rendered it
possible for the laurel of the Canary Isles to
grow in the region inhabited by the reindeer,
and for the Icjihas primi (cuius to be in clese
fraternity with the tlcjihas mcritwnalis. In
Kew Zealand, one of the glaciers of the Cook
range is not more than 152 yards from the
level of the gea, and yet actually bordored with
line aiboresceut ferns.
