Savannah is not only the most
beautiful city North or South but
it is progressing in commercial im
portanco. It scoms not only to
rival Charleston but even to ox
coed it in commercial activity. It
is evidently a rising place. Bay
Street is a very bustling, stirring
sconO with its many drays hurry
ing back and forth. It is a pecu
liar looking street, being built up
only on one side, whilst between
it and the river there are walled
up declivities, with stairways of
heavy masonry and paved en
trances for drays to have access
to the dark sub'terranean looking
warehouses under the bluff, which
look like the gloomy state prisons
of Venico, whilst to the upper
stories of these warehouses there
are ornamental bridges from the
quays in front next the str.ot. It
is unlike any city the writer has
over seen in this partieular. Some
of these stair ways are very steep.
Onc of the buildings in this part
of the town is built in the style of
some of the old French Palaces of
the time of Louis Fourteenth, but
on a inucli smaller scale of cour3o,
and covered with slate. The ship
ping at Savannah is heavy. Sov
oral large vessels were at anchor
down the river and at the wlharves,
but not so many as at other timcs,
as I was told by an intelligent
gentleman and friend, whom we
found in Savannah, a resident
there and a near relative of one of
the ladies of the party. We re
grettod that we did not have an
opportunity to visit I3onavonturo,
the boautiful cemetery near Sa
vannah, which we had heard
described as the most beautiful
place of the kind to be seen any
wvhere, and really the photograph
io v-Iews of it, which the writer
.saw on the street, warrant the be
diof. T1hce represented vistas of
magnificent live oaks draped with
hanging moss, with white menu
ments gleaming through the "dimi
rligious light" that seemed a most
* oting place for the repose of the
dead as we'll as for the "p)ensive
contmplaion"of' the living.

of damages against the Company
for not starting at tihe regular

v'o all going to a hotel, but the
whoso guests the ladies were to
be, delivered me from those Philis
tines, for I handed ovor their
chocks to him and he gave them
to the onlo ho pleased, whilst I
gave my own check to the same
man,and thereby offended another
who had offered to take me and
my trunk to a hotel for the same
price as the other. Ho spoke to
me in a very injured tone somo
time afterward,whon I met him at
my hotel where he stopped to do
liver some baggage for others. I
was recommended to the Price
House by the gentleman above
mentioned, and had reason to be
lieve that my choice of a hotel
was a wise one. It is kept by
Southern men and is a most excel
lent house. The St. James is a
fine, large new Hotel built by a
Northern Company, and kept by
Yankees, and lar'goly resorted to
by Yankees. I should not have
felt at home there, and I heard a
Canadian, as well as some North
ern men, say that they liked the
Price House the best after trying
both. They said there was more
formality and display at the St.
James, but not so mich real coin
fort as they found at the Price
House. The lattnr is a now hotel
also, and is situated immediately
at the terminus of the railroad
from Savannah and Tallahassee.
I was9urprised to find lfersons
from almost all parts of the world
at Jacksonville. There were sev
oral of the English nobility there.
I noticed the name of Lord Par
ker on the register at the St. James
Hotel. He had a very fine Now
Foundland dog which was much
spoken of. There was a British
Goeral of some note, Sir Charles
Wyndham, of Crimean celebrity,
stopping at the Price IIouse, and
died there. He was rather ad
vancod in ago but went to Jack.
sonvillo for the benefit of his health.
He was stationed in Canada, and
when it was found that he would
not recover, a tclegram was dis
patched to his wife, Lady WVynd
ham, in Canada, who arrived in
Jacksonville pnly in timo to see
him sink. There was a French
Marquis, Do Talleyrand, also there,
and a wealthy Spanish or Cuban
family staying at the Price House
a few days. There were persons
from all parts of the United States,
even from the most remote States,
but principally from the North
and East. We met them every
where, and one of the ladies of
our party remarked "that their
hard characters and harsh voices
did not harmonize with the dreamy
beauty of the land." I was struck
with the truth of the remark
Most of them go there for health,
but some for pleasure and the
sports of hunting or shooting and
fishing. An Englishman w~ho
was oni the same boat with us andl
had his fatmily with him, had also
a niumbor of dogs and guns with

MY WIFES BRIDAL TOUR.
nY MOSE sKINNER.
WhTlen 1 mairried my secondl wife,
she was dreadful sot about going
off on a bridal tour. I told her
she had better* wait six months or
a year, and I'd try to go with lher,
but she said she'd rather go alone
--when a woman wais traveling a
man was an out-and-out humbug.
So I gave her seventy-five cents,
and told her to go oft' and have a
goodl time. I never begrudge
money where my wvifo's happiness
is concerned. My first wife never
could complain of net going any
whoros, for I'm dreadful fiored to
go off on a goodl time myself, and
alwvays wvas. I dlon't pretend to
say how mnany times I took her
out . to see the engine squirt, and
there wvas no endh to the free lee
ttreslI let her go to, The neigh
bors used to say: "It (lees beat all
howv the Skcinners do go I"
When Signor Blitz, was in Slunk
ville, with his wondefult canaries,
he gave my wvife a complimointary
t,icket. I not only 801(1 that ticket
for my wife, but I gave her half
the money. I don't beast of it,
though ; only mention it to show
how nmuch I thought of my wife's

I got married I concluded I'd do
But the plan did'nt work in the
case of my second wife. No, I
should think not. I broached the
"Matilda," I said, "I suppose
you are aware that I am now your
lord and master."
"Not much you ain't," said she.
"Mrs. Skinner," I replied, "you
are fearfully demoralized. You
need reorganizing at once. You
are cranky." And I brandished
my sixty-two cent umbrella wildly
She took the umbrella away
from me, and locked me up in the
I am quick to draw an inference,
and the inforonco I drew here was,
that I was not a success as a reor
ganizer of female women.
After this I changed my tactics.
I let her have her own way, and
the plan worked to a charm from
the very first. It's the best way
of managing a wife that I know
of. Of course this is between you
So when my wife was bound to
go off on a bridal tour anyhow, I
cordially assented. "Go, Matilda,"
said I, "and stay as long as you
want to; then if you fool as though
you would like to stay a little
while longer, stay, my dear, stay."
She told me to stop talking, and
go up stairs and get her red flannel
night-cap, and that bag of penny
royal for her aunt Abigail.
My wife is a very smart woman.
She was a Baxter, and the Baxtors
are a very smart family indeed.
Her mother, who is going on eigh
ty, can fry more slap-jacks now,
than half' those primped up city
girls, who rattle on the piano, or
else walk the street with their fur
bolows and fixing, protonding to
got mad if a young chap looks at
'em pretty hard, but getting mad
in earnest if you don't take any
notice of them at all.
Ah I girls ain't what they used
to be when I was young, and the
follows are worse still. When I
went courting, for instance, I nev
er thought of staying till after ten
o'clock, and only went twice a
week. Now they go seven nights
in a week, and cry because there
ain't eight. They write touching
notes to each other during the
day. "Dear George, do you love
me as much now as you did at a
quarter past twelve last night ?
Say you do, dlearest and it will
give me courage to go down stairs
and tackle them cold beans left
over from gesterday."
Well, well, 1 suppose they enijoy
themselves, and it, ain't for us 01(1
folks, whose hearts have got a lit
tlo calloused by long wear,to inter
foroe. Let them got together and
court if they liko it, and I think

I courltedl my prCeent wife, but it
seemed just as nice to sit on a lit

smooth my hair, as it did thirty
As I saidl before, my wife is a
very smart womnan, but she could n't
be any anything else, and a Bax
ter. She uised to give lectures on
Woman's Rights, and in one p)lace
where she lectured, a big college
conferred the title ofTL. L. ID., up
on her. But she.-wouldn't take it.
"No, gentlemen," she said, "give it
to the poor." She always was
just so charitable. She gave my
boys permission to go barefooted
all winter, and insisted upon01 it so
much in her kind way, that they
could not refuse.
She foirly dotes on my children,
and I've seen hei' many a time go
to their trowsers poecet and take
out their pennies after they'd got
to sleep, and put them in her bu
reau draw for fear they might lose
thorm. * * * *
I started to toll you about my
wvife's bridal tour, but the fact is,
I never could find out much about
it myself. I believe she had a good
time. 8ho came back improved in
health, and( I found out, before she
had been in the house twenty-four
hours, that shoe had gained itn

In conclusion I would say to all
young men : Marry your second
wife first, and keep out of debt by
all means, oven if you have to bor
row money to do it.

The Now York corrospondent
of the Philaadelphia Telegraph

'1'ho other evening I accepted
