Outdoors at Idlewlid: or Country-life

I daily see parties of voung gentlemen and

about us. They would enjoy it. of course,
tho best of their knowledge and convenience.
Hut the slopes, tile rocks in tho tiolds, ihe

lire points from which tho delicious scenery
around them ts best seen; and yet they
walit only upon tho common road. Our own

far down depths, which people might well
take i.niineis to see was scarce known

of it, till we made it promenadable with

in one scale' and a pair oi paieni leamei
f hoes in the other. As these gentlemen tin-
coneinusly prico it, scenery is proved to
dear at the cost of a shoe-scratch. It is the
dread of damago to sidewalU-y boots and
shoes, (which English customs declare to
wholly out of tasie as well out of placo
tho country), that keeps duiutily-shod city
gentlemen from exploring tho points of view
in these magnificent Highlands of the Hud
son. An t they are willing to lose grace and
freedom of movement into the bargain.
is n thick shoo alone that treads fairly nnd
lirmlvona country road. Tho gait that
snares patent leather is constrained and un
manly. I saw an over-dressed youth jump
from a wall, a day or two since. Ilo
hei-n sent into the adjoining field, by tho
dy he was with, to gather a flower or a black
berry. Uut, as ho came to tho ground, there
was an anxious three-doll.ir-trude in tho way
of dividing a shock among his joints an
to spare his boots which must have giv
en a ludicrous turn to the impression ho
making on tho mind of the ladv. Would
not bo good policy ns well us good philosophy,
would it not "pay," even for city folks,
dress plainly and un-dtmape-alif when out
of town? I wish it could bo brought about.

is oppressed by sorrow, by the fate which had
overtaken so many millions of human beings
once quid;, like youiself, iih life, nnd ngi
taled by the lieic sway of the passions. You
be'iold them marching, in endless procession,
as it were, down the great highway of eter
nity, emereing from darkness, and swallowed
up by daikness. What infinite untold histo
ries have perished with them! what loves!
whaht iilreds! what struggles for fame! what
bitter and agonizing disappointments! liut
those generations havo been so long at rest,
that you contemplate their fate with serenity,
as you do the general aspec's of nature. Yi u
acquiesce iu the iuvpad of lime; you imagine
they have been reconciled to death. Certain
you are that unbroken peace broods over
thim with its dove-like wing, nnd soothes
them in their everlasting repose.
Uut walking through Pisa is almost like
sitting beside a death-bed. Strength, nnd
health, and vivacity, are gone; the form is at
tenuated, the uir languid nnd painful, the
voice reuuecd by decay almost to an inaudi
ble whisper. Sometimes you imagine that
the whole active population musl have gone
forth i.n some great expedition, or for the cel
ebration of somo mighty religious fcstavnl in
the mountains, and left tlieir dwellings deso
late for a season.
Sometimes the thought strikes you that the
city was buill in expectation of inhabitants,
who have never come to take possession of il;
so many of the houses are empty; without
the half-cheerful, hull-melancholy intimation
that they are to let. This would indicate
dies sonic hope ; but the poor Pisai.s have none,
except when a few English families arrive,
and excite in them the idea that more may fol
low, and infuse life into those dreary cham-lic-a
which have not echoed to a human foot
step for centuries.
Yet there is after all, ' an inexpressible
charm in thojjihico, especially when the brill
iance of autumn is dill used over it, like sun
shine over a hectic cheek. There is a slrage
pleasure in linking yourself with dying things,
which, by the force of imagination, you en
dow nub a pail of your own consciousness,
and send forward, ns il were, like pioneers
or exoloi er.-i into the rcliejon of death. " You
imagine you can look through in agonies oi
tltc-ir S)HII3 into vue wonu urvunu nit: yii-.
Exactly so is it with a dying city; and Pisa
is in ixlreiith leady to have the last rites
ot reiioion rand lo it, before it is paclici" up
in the eollin nnd sent to the universal cem

The Angel's Gifts to Spain. "In the
early ages of Christianity," said a heimit,
"there "lived in a cave, somewhere about
llio source of the Manx inaies, an extremely
old hermit. Ilis piety was great, his charity
extensive, and his love of Spain predominant
over nil other feelings. Youths and muidei.E
in love; young mothers disirous of offspring;
worldings opj ressed by debts nnd dihVuliy
relijiotia men and women struggling with
their sins, repined constantly lo cosull the
holy man, who sunt them in turn all away, re
freshed and comforted.
" A little tim before his death, ono of the
angels, who foresaw he was soon to be their
companion, descended, throurh impatience, to
converse with bun a Utile beforehand, or else
commissioned lo b. stow on bim a blessing.
The saint had probably been used to such
visitants, and therefore experienced little or
no surprise when, with his large while wings,
he entered into his cave. On the contrary,
lie oolitelv snlu'.ed him, desired linn to be sea
ted on a smooth ledge of rotk, close beside
himself and then courteously inquired to what
circumstance he owed tho honor of his visit.
M ' 1 urn come," replied tho angel, 'to be
stow on you a blessing.'
" 'If I have found favor in vour eves,' said
the holy man, 'let not your blessing be for me,
but for' my country. Heaven has already
oiven me more than I can desire. 1 have had
a Ion" and happy life, I have closed the eyes
of mv parents amid abundant blessings,
have' beheld my sisters aud my brothers
grow up in h n sty at d inigiity and have h
besides, the inestimable satisfaction of aug
menting thu happiness of thousands. Let
now, therefore, obtain for those whom I never
could reach or aid, or comfort, the blessing
which my Lord is pleased to offer me.'
" '1 consent,' answered the angel, "to be
sto.v your country not one, but many blcss
inus. Choose for her and bn not bashful,
I know not where I shall stop.
" 'Then.'s.iid the saint, I u;k a f ir climate.
" 'It is granted.'
"'I ask for magnificent mountains.'
" 'You shall havo them ,
"'Next, for lei tile i.lains and noblo rivers.'
" 'Tiii-e nre vours .'
- ' . i .... , ,
"'Then for beaulilnll women anu uruve
men to inhabit this glorious land.'
" 'I accede- lo your wishes.
I'l,,.,, (,,r excellent fruits and rich harvest,
and oil and wine, and whatever else the
loll of life may need.'
" 'I concede all you demand.'
"Last of all., said the hermit, 'I pray
to ensure us good government to complete
and form tho crown of tho blessings you
lavished on Spain. '
"Tho angel rose in haste, if not in
'"You ask ton much friend,' said ho,
the rest vou shall have nnd welcome;
good government oh, no that is never
bo granted to Spain, while kings are
idols, and palaoes your tamplus.
"So saying ho extended his wings,
out of the cave and in a moment was lost
the bloc depths of space." 5.

ple to masticate. Long Islanders aro hav
ing n solemn lime over it now. Heretofore
between $-1,000 and $5,000 was de'-med
suilicienl fur carrying ihe mails on their slow
conch' through ihe Island. But tho Crys
tal Palace is open; meat has lisen in the
mm kit; and the able directors think it worth
fcSI.000 to carry il foi the cum'ng year. Un
cle Sam offers $7,000 for the job but that
won't do. So, yesterday, a lunse team was
started for the East End, with tho mails on
board. That is the way the story is t. Id us.
For the credit of nil hands, we hope il will
be denied, and with authority.
Well, now what is the extraordinary service
the Road offers to do for the $:),000, without
which it won't carry a leathern bag a rod,
on any consideration? Why, furnish a 10
hy 9 corner af its baggage-car fur an agent to
stand in, and keep his desk w ith the ost man's
stamp and carmine dye, nnd nccommodate a
j dozen or two mail bags. It never stops a
minute pasi us proper lime ior stoppages, io
deliver or receive its mails, it never hurt
itself, or intruded a moment on the lime-table
on that account.
Eut perhaps we do it injustice. It is a
great i esponsibility to carry a mail. Many is
the rainy day, when passengers nrc scarce,
and it would be convenient to sto; the train
at Mattituck or Cutehogue for the night, but
on account of the mail, they must run through
lo Greenport. I lere would be a saving. In
Winter.ii is customary lo run into a snow-bank
nnd lav there till all the old ladies in the
iieiohboriieod have sold out the r pies and
milk at handsome profits, and to prevent
starvation, they must move on. Il is a bore
on such occasions, to bo pestered with the
mails. The mail-agent frets, and postmas
ters along the road are all' in a fume. Slop off
tho leathern bags, and the cars might lie in
the snow-bank til! iha.snow thawed out, and
il is doubtful if the management would feel
very badly about it, or wake up to inquire
where the train was delayed. ,,

Opening of Trade with Japan.
Wo have been sunrised at ihe confidence
felt by some of the officers of tho Japan expedi
lion, that they should succeed in effecting a
rommeicial arrangement with that country,
hitherto closed to the commerce of all Chris
tendom, except Holland, nnd to the latter un
der many restrictions. Perhaps the annexed
paragraph from a California paper will throw
some light upon llio subject:
A business transaction took place a few
days since that is likely to be productive
important results in the history of tho com
meicial world. A purchase of 100,000 lbs.
lice was made by one of our most respecta
ble Chinese merchants, which it is proposed
lo ship to Japan on board the ship Hamilton,
hich is now under Chinese colors having
been purchased from her Ameiioan owners
by two wealthy Chinese merchants. The
Chinese havo long been on trading terms
with tlie Jap. mi Sr, and their vessels are nilow
ed lo enter their purls and harbors. The tin
dei taking is a novel one, and, in the event
its buot ceding, il would not require thu fore
sight of a pio,diet lo predict a very sudden
increase iu mercantile marine of China; whish

WATER IS DISGUSTFUL.
BY THE EDITOR.
When Noah and his family
Had left the nrk, they made
An offering. Such piety
Did please his God, who raid:
"7 sniflt tii offerings street s.tror,
Dear Noah ask of me a favor."
A choice oft is no easy task;
llul Noah said, in baste:
"Mi) Lord simif tiling lo driui last,
For it titer I can't taste,
Since men and heats corrupt and Jw.tful,
Are di'otvncd in il, it it disgustful."
His God then look from Paradise,
A spiig of sweetest vine,
And Noah, doliftil nnd wise,
Did in his heart enshrino
The proper way of culliva'ins;
It, which Jehovah was relating.
He nnd his family were glad.
The ground was duly tilled;
They built a pressj and soon they had
Their cellar du, and tilled
Willi sparkling wine, and never ceasing
To work, their store was soon increasing.
And Noah, surely, was a wise
And pious man: to thank
Ilis God at morn, when he did riso
He ne'er forgot, and drank
His wine three hundred years and fifty
And till his death, was sound and thrifty.
We drink our wina loo; and this plea
Another thing may fix:
I No man should, as you plainly see,
His wine wiih water mix;
Since men nnd beasts crrtint and lustful,
Were drowned in it, it is disgustful.
Here is a startling fact for the ensiderntion
of llio cold water army of the nation. Some
few thousand years ngo, "lustful men nnd
liensts" were drowned, and hence we should
io drink water, or mix it with our liquor,
localise it is "disgustful"

The equivocal position f Mr. Pillsbury,

Some 1 5 or 20 vessels havd arrived thera
from Gloucester Mass., New. Castle,' N. II.,

WASHINGTON, Aug 11.
It stated in well informed quarters here,
thnt up to the preset time, the government
has received no official confirmation of the
runiortd agreement between England and
Spain for the abolishment of slavery in tho
Island of Cuba ; but at the same time, very
little doubt is felt ns to the reliability of the '
information on this subject published in the
Herald. There can be no question, from the
manner in which the intelligence has been
received here, but that the President will
take high grounds against the whole proceed- '
ings. It is by far the most important move
ment which has taken place for years, affects
ing as it will, if permitted to bo carried out, "
not only American interests generally, but
tlie lives ns well ns properly ot the people of '
the Southern States. It is not improbable
that such evidences of bad faith on the part ,
of both England and Spain may materially ,
otsten the destiny of Cuba. Lven if the
general government felt disposed to permit
this underhand policy of England to go on, . '
which it has no disposition whatever lo do, ,
the Southern States alone would bo sufficient.
in Bpile of the efforts of the federal adminis
tration, to sweep from this continent all ves
tiges of Spanish power. It will however be ''
found, that President Pierce wi 1 be fully up "
to public opinion on tuts matter.
