The future ol Australia for die next
thirty years yill rest w ith the engineers.
The rccciu discoveries of underground
rivers in the most arid portions ot the
continent have given these words a
grealei sigiiilicanee. The dilliculty of
Australia iias always been the Icar that
the laud v ill not support a large poaila
lion. These discoveries ol water dispel
that tear. It now appears that the
volumes of rain which fall about once in
live years over the greater part of the
Australian coiiiiru at , co wring with Hood
n,e plains which for fonrv aispn viouslv
tiave not known more moisture than
might lie given in Kngl.aiid by a good
fall of dew, find their way through the I
porous soil into channels and chambers

of 1 .null or 2.11(1(1 teel, they provi'V an

he said the cow did not belong lo him :
didn't know who it belonged to. "How

officer. "I don' know. sail. 1 jest picjfed

There is one habit of speech which,
more than any other, marks the souther
ner, and especially the North Carolinian
the almost universal use of the word
"like" for "as if." as in the sentence, "It
looks like it might rain." In striking
contrast to this use of "like," which is
reallv an error, though used by English
authors, we have noticed everywhere the
admirable pronunciation of the letter
"n," so rarely met wiih in the North ex
cept among the cultivated classes. We
have been tempted to paraphrase Ad
dison's lion mot and exclaim, "Why, in
the Smith even the little children speak
English!" when wc have heard young
children, and the least as well us the
best educated of the people, pronounce
dlis letter with a grace and correctness
that have brought the blush of shame to
our Yankee cheeks. 'There is an unusual
emphasis on the word "please" in asking
a favor, for instance "Please hand me
that book." which has to unaccustomed
tars a peevish sound, seeming- to imply
that the favor has alieady been asked
ml reluscd, until we learn from observa
tion that il is merely a habit, and that
the average North Carolinian, on the
contrary, is one ot the most courteous
and amiable ol beings. And this calls to
mind another remark of President An
dre ws withrcleienec to the war, that there
was a great difference between North and
Smith 'Carolinians in the bitlei ihps of
their feeling lowaid the North, and that
while a North Carolinian was quite will
ing to exchange civilities with the
northern soldiers when not actually en
gaged in fighting, a South Carolinian
would lose no opportunity of taking aim
at a Yankee head, whenever one came
within range ot his musket.
Perhaps the lirsl thing to impress a
lad who happens to come South alone
is ihe dcleicnce everywhere shown by
men lo women, n is iioiieeaoie even
before leaving the cars. The very con
ductor looks alter the comfort of the
solitary traveler as if she were his
especial charge, assists her on and off the
train, carries her traveling bag to her
scat, and escorts her from one car to
another it she w ishes to change; and in
one ease, where I was obliged to change
cars in the night, the conductor lelt his
own train altogether, walked with me a
long distance to the other train, bought
my ticket, cheeked my trunks, and did
not leave me until he saw me seated in
the car. This seemed to me very ex
traordinary, accustomed to the brnsque
ness ol many of the northern conductors,
but I am told that in the South it is ex
pected. My astonishment was not
