LETTEIl NUMBER XXXV.
0'OI.OGXE. January. 1SGG.-Tho steep, yine-clad
mountains around Bingen, almost shut in the Rhine.
lt is not surprising that thc Germans have a super- j
stilior.a reverence for this grand old river, for on I
its picturesque banks there is c blending of beau- i
ties and relics not to bo found on any other river j
in Europe. I cannot hut feel an interest in ?he i
ruins o? the ancient castles, which crown nearly !
every h'.U. They arc tottering monuments of a |
defunct feudal aristocracy of the middle ages.
With each casfcio is a legend. They were the
abodes of many daring chiofs, but..their memories
have perished with them. One feels, as he travels
through this old country, thc spirit of the past,
and its strong recollections come back upon the
mind with irresistible power.
Bingen was a favorite retreat of the famous
Charlemagne. He built near hero a magnificent
palace, ornamented with one hundred marble col?
umns. Only a few pillars remain to mark the spot
of this once"grand edifice. Our guide pointed out a
marble statue of one of Charlemagne's four queens.
A thousand years ago, and queens were scarcely
as grand ns milkmaids now-a-days. On an island
in Hie middle of the stream is a tower, where it is
said Bishop Hutto was eaten bj' tho rats for Ins
misdeeds. Thr.t army of sfaar -toothed quadru?
peds might find active employment in some other
countries that I have read of.
The Eh ne is distinguished for its beauty of
scenery and for the rich fields, valleys and vine?
yards which hue its banks. Populous cities, towns
and valleys ornament its borders. The Rhine fu -
nishe8 700 miles of navigation from Basle, in
Switzerland, to thc sea, thus enabling the inhabi?
tants of its fertile valleys to exchange their pro?
ducts at a small expens? for transportation. I was
much interested in tho immense floating islands of
timber as they drifted slowly down the Bhine.
These huge rafts are made up of logs as they are
hurled down thc steep mountains one at a time,
until enough are collected to make the foundation
of a respectable village. I counted eight rude cot?
tages built on one .raft. In addition to the large
colony of pigs, cows, sheep and poultry, there are
often as many as 400 persons acting in the capacity
of rowers, pilots, cooks, workmen, etc. This mot?
ley group of men, women and children seemed
quite at home in the immense floating ark. The
hvely and enchanting music, which is as essentia
to thc German as his pipe, is to be heard early
and late. The captain occupies an elevated posi?
tion, from which ne. can command a view of the
raft from end to end^ and directs ita movements by
signals. You can judge of the magnitude and cost
of a Bhine raft when you leam they are months in
constructing it, and consume, from its commence?
ment until it is sold, 00,000 pounds of bread and
potatoes, 40,000 pounds of butter and cheese, 35,
?OOpounds meat, 500 tons beer, besides wine,- vege?
tables, etc. A good sized raft sells in Holland for
$100,000 to $150,000. The usual voyage from Bin?
gen to Holland is twenty days.
As a commercial channel thc Bhine is one of the
most important rivers on the Continent. The
travel up and down the river from Mayence to Co- |
logne is immense. As a swift railway ?B on each
hank of this noble river, the travel by steamer? is
rapidly diminishing. Prom the deck of a steamer
is the only correct way of getting a full view of the
Bhine scenery. My passage from Bingen to Co?
logne was defightf ul, the scenery varied, the vine
terraced hills often bordering the very water's
edge. The great beauties of the Bhine after leav?
ing Switzerland lie between Mayence and Bonn.
But here is old Cologne, which is one of the finest
cities on the Bhine, filled with churches, cathe?
drals, museums and palaces, and is rich in historic
associations. In the loth, century Cologne was
one of the most populous cities in Germany,
With 150,000 inhabitants, Cologntj flourished not
only in the possession of SOO church steeples, but
m common science and the fine arts.
This interesting and antique city was first settled
by the Homans under Marcus Agruppa Agonpina,
mother of the light-hearted and light-headed
Nero, who fiddled while Rom ri was burning, was I
born here. The ancient walls which surround a
portion of the town,, with their immense towers
and broad gates, are fine specimens of the fortifi?
cations of the middle ages, hut with tho modern !
improvements in artillery they are of little use.
The old city became the theatre of religions
IT^f.^gA WOi.Mshed in one '
-. par-thai^ gapfl (h |. of the ^otea.
tauts. Thousands of the best houses became
tenantless, trade declined, the fine arts were ne?
glected. Thc proud city that at one time could
send forth 30,000 fighting men, was reduced,
by religious intolerance, to lese than that number
of men, women and children. Since the French
revolution the city has greatly advanced *n wealth
and population. Cologne has now 125,000 inhabi?
tants, and carries on a large trade. Under tho I
Prussian Government, tho city is throwing off its
former-dirty and gloomy appearance. Many of |
thc streets and houses would do credit to Berlin.
Its fine water communications are of great advan?
tage. The city is now the centre of railways
running to Berlin, Prankfort, Antwerp and Paris.
Near the splendid new iron bridge'ovcr the Rhine
is the world-renowned Cathedral. I wandered j
through this stupendous gothic building, which '
was intended by the ambitious architect to be -the
largest and most magnificent church on the globe,
eclipsing even the great Saint Peters at Rome.
Many million of dollars have been expended on it. I
Although six long centuries have passed away
since ita foundations were laid, the busy mechanics
are still at work on its hugo dimensions, and it
will require another generation to complete the
building. The old iron crane, which bas been
standing for several centuries on . the unfinished
tower,' has recently been put in motion by tho
King of Prussia. That ambitious monarch may
hasten the work to its final completion.
The body of this magnificent stucture is in the
shape of a cross. There are four broad aisles with
rows of pillars, each row having more than a hun?
dred columns, of which the centre ones are thirty1
feet in circumference. One of the most remarkable,
sights in the Cathedral is the shrine of the three
Kings, who came from the East to Bethlehem to
see and bring presents to the infant Saviour.
Their bones were brought from Milan in 1170 and
deposited in a case of silver, and placed in a small
marble chapel behind the high altar. The skulls
of the Kings were crowned with golden diadems,
-?u.iched with jewels and precious stones. During
the French revolution Cologne fell into the hands
of the Jacobins. They did not have respect for
king or priest; many of the precious relics in the
jshrixe disappeared.. Tho treasures in the silver
box are said to be worth several million of dollars.
I have an idea there is more paste than diamonds
on theso crown heads. Amongst the other objects
of interest is the silver coffin of Saint Engelbert,
the projector of the Cathedral. There are other
fine monuments, numerous painted windows and
curious tapestry. For fifty cents you can see the
bones of Saint Mathew! 1 presume, for an addi?
tional fifty cents, tho bones of each of the apostles
could be exhibited, and pieces of the "original
cross" ph which our Saviour was crucified. ,
Portions of many of tho finest churches in
Europe are converted into museums. As many
ridioulous relics are. exhibited here as are to be
found at Barnum's, in New York, They, "however,
ormg into the church many people who are not in
the habit of frequenting such places; also a largo
revenue. Apart from the spires, paintings.: and
statues, the churches on the Continent have in?
terested me very , much, and there, are few days in
the week br monthlhat ? .have not visited one or
more.' I have viB?t?d-the churches early and late',
in storm and is tmnehin*. but X did not enter &
church without ?indintr pious worshippers. Occi
sionally I would bo almost stifled with tho smoke
arising from thc incense. I did not understand
the virtuos of theso burnt offerings. I presumo,
however, many who prosont thomsclves at tho
altar need fumigating. Among tho Protestants,
many do not sos the necessity of immersion; others
cry ont against infant baptism, and lhere aro those
who are so uncharitable as to piononnco "class
meetings" an innovation upon Romanism. I have
an idea there are good and bad people to he found
in all denominations. A great deal of the religion
of the world, after all, is educational; hence tho
necessity of making judicious selections of the
teachers for our children.
I next visited thc church of Saint Ursula, to soo
tho bones of eleven thousand virgins who wove
slain by thc naughty Hims because they refused to
become mothers; As you enter the church, these
hideo-relics moot thc eye on every side ; even the
glass pavement under your feet is laid on bones.
Tho masonry of bones arc built several feet thick
on the walls. This ghastly sight was nearly as
hideous as tho Strassburg mummies. Just a8 I
entered tho church a marriage ceremony was being
porformed, which was certainly a moro agreeable
sight than tho relics of the unfortunate vir?
gins. It was thc first wedding I had attended in
Germany-my patience was quite exhausted be?
fore thy priest pronounced tho happy couplo man
and wife. The ceremony was as long as the ten
commandment?. My guido proposed to visit
another church which contained the bones of six
thousand martyrs, but I begged to be excused, ns
! I had seen enough in that line. I preferred visit?
ing Faima's famous Eau do Cologne Manufactory.
There are thirty manufactures of Cologin. in this
city. Notwithstanding I bathed freely iu this sweet
j water, I dreamed neaily all night of skulls and
bones. G. W. W.
A fearful explosion . occurred in a coal pit at i
Barnsley, Yorkshire, England, on thc 12fch inst., I
of which wo have some particulars by tho Atlantic '
telegraphic ca :le. The scene of tho fatal disaster
was the Oaks colliery, near Barnsley, and it occur?
red'about one o'clock of tho day named.. This is
the most extensivo coal pit ? in thc district, the
shaft running to a depth of two hundred and sev?
enty yards. The works extend fully two milc3 un?
der ground, and aro at all times during .labor
hours filled with the number of hands requisite to
keep up their great production and fitted up with
every necessary tackle, instruments and tools.
On Wednesday morning about four hundred
persons, men and boys, commenced work in the
pit at the usual hour, and wc-.t on until near the
hour of one o'clock, when a terrific explosion, sup?
posed of fire damp, too.-: place. The persons em
polyed abovo ground, with almost alf the hands
working in the glass factories, foundries, needle
and iron rolling works, with the citizens and shop?
keepers of the town, rushed to tne mouth of the
pit immediately after they heard of the disaster.
Exploring parties were formed, and a number of |
men descended the shaft.
It was at first believed that- all in the pit had
been killed, but some few pe: sons were brought out
alive by thc exploring parties that descended. It
appears to be certain, however, that over three
hundred persons were killed. Among those saved |
are a few of thc engineers. They aro terribly mu?
tilated. They state that the explosion was from
the usual cause-fire damp.
On Thursday, another explosion occurred. It
happened about nine o'clock in the morning, while
the men who had volunteered for the work were in
the pit, removing the dead bodies. Eighty bodies
had been taken ont up to the time of the second
explosion. At that time there were several offi?
cials, besides the volunteers, in the pit, and about
thirty of them were killed. Up to thc evening of
Thursday, over three hundred dead bodies had
been recovered and brought up.
On Thursday, an explosion, attended with great
loss of life, took place at Strafford.
About twenty years ago an accident almost simi?
lar to that of last "Wednesday occurred at the
Oaks Colliery, in which seventy-three persons per?
ished, and since that time explosions in coal pits,
attended with great loss of life, have been ire- !
quent. Many, perhaps mo?t, of these explosions
are to be attributed to tho recklessness of the
miners. If thev use the safety lamps invented by
8ir Humphrey Davy, and no other hght, an explo?
sion cannot w^ll occur, for the flame cannot reach
the explosive gas, and its burning inside the wire
screen gives warning of the presence of tho dan?
gerous fire damp in time to allow all to escape.
But long immunity from accident begets careless?
ness, andas the Davy lamp gives less light than
an unshadowed caudle or lamp, the men use the
latter. A blow of the pick opens a reservoir of I
fire damp, it reaches the flame, and in an instant a
terrible explosion ensues, extending in most cases
to the whole mine.
While these accidents may be attributed directly
to the carelessness of the miners . themselves, Btiu
it would seem that tho owners and managers of the
mines might so ventilate tho pits that fire damp
could not accumulate in such quantities as to be
dangerous. Of course this would be attended with
heavy expense, but when human life is placed in
comp?tition with an increase in the cost of coal,
there ought to be no hesitation in mcurring all the
expense necessary to render coal mining perfectly
safe. The English Government is not unmindful
of the fives of its people, and such a terrible les?
son as that at Barnsley will not be lost on the Par?
liament. We look, therefore, for the enactment of |
a stringent law, requiring of the coal miners the ]
adoption of all possible precautions against ac?
SOME TABLE.-On Thanksgiving Day the Rev
T. DeWitt Talmage, of tho Reformed Dutch
Church, in Philadelphia, preached a sermon on
the text "Thou preparest a table before me in the
presence of my enemies." The reverend gentle?
man, in his sermon, attempted to describe the
"largo table" that was spread for our national
thanksgiving. He said :"
"The table reaches across the two great ranges
of mountains that cross the continent, and touches
the beach of the Atlantic and Pacific s r as. It is
the thanksgiving table of the nation. They come
from the North and South, and East and West, th
"Etfc* H?!"!r?. j? 5BSfe88?fee. products of every
zone, birds from every aviary, catS?~feSr^
pasture, fish from every lake, feathered spoils^r8?Sr
every farm. Its fruit baskets bend under the
wealth plucked from the poach fields of New Jer?
sey, the apple orchards ot* Western New York, the
orange groves of Florida, the vineyards of Ohio,
and the nuts threshed from New England woods.
The bread is white from the wheat fields of Mis?
souri and Michigan. The banqueters are adorn?
ed with California gold, the table is agleam with
Nevada silver, and the feast warmed from fire?
grates heaped high with Pennsylvania coal. The
nail is spread with carpets from Lowell mills,.and
the fights flash from bronzed brackets of Philadel?
The last touch is good, and if the preacher's
residence is not at once supplied with"broDze
brackets of Philadelphia manufacture," the Phila?
delphia manufacturers must be. too obtuse to take
a bint, or too miserly to act ott it.
The preacher, having got his bronzed brackets
into piece, takes breath and starts again: . '
"The fingers of Massachusetts gnrls have hung
! the place with beautiful embroidery. The music is.
the drum of ten thousand mills accompanied by
the shout of children, let. loose for play, the glad
j ness of harvesters driving barnward the load of
sheaves, the glee of four million bondmen beating
time with their snapped shackles, and the doxology I
cf a redeemed nation that rises up with anthems
that flyheaven-ward. wing and wing, till the celes"
tial gates are crowded with the hosanh?hs, and the
oldest harper of heaven, cannot toll where- the
terrestrial anthem ends or thc celostial song begins.*'
That will do? The: confusion of four - milhon
darkeys, engaged in a "plantation walk around,"
I with broken shackles for castanets and the drum
of ten thousand mills for orchestra, might well
puzzle "the oldest harper of heaven"-to know
where the terrestrial discord ended and the celestial
harmony began. Was the sermon of the Bey. Mr.
Talmadge preached before, or after dinner ? j j J J
The Collector of Internai Revenue for the First,
District inPh?adelphialately addressed the follow?
ing question to Commissioner ROLLINS, which is
of interest: ?..''.-"'; -
;<A distiller of this District desires to withdraw
from bond a lot of spirits: below proof, but held
that he was not liable to pay the tax of $2 per gal?
lon on the same, inasmuch as it had not reached
strength of proof." . ?;"? 'L: i' i? i
The Commissioner replied: "I would state that
in the ease which you mention the course taken by
you, in requiring a tax of $2 per gallon upon the
spirits was correct. According' to - the plain lan?
guage of the 82nd section"'of inly 13th, 1866; all
j spirits below first proof are taxed the same .aa first
proof, and for all above first .proof the tax is m
creased in the same proportion as tho strengt!?.". .
Suit has been brought in the Fourth District
Court of Now Orleans, against Colonel Oscar Bur?
bridge of Kentucky, to reoover $100,000 as damages
for the vnttngful -seizure and forciblo captnre'of
seven hundred and fifty eight bales of cotton at

A FEW WORDS OF COMMON
How few there are who are not subject to some affection
of th? lungs or respiratory, organs, who, by neglecting
premonitory symptoms, aggravate the complaint, until
(.disease strikes , its. shafts, causing inexpressible torture
of the patient, and anxiety and distress to friends. "Only
a cold !" . "A slight sore throat I" is the heedless remark

and Consumption, if the case is not beyond, all hope.
