Mr. Palmer’s Sketches. No. XII. (concluded. J In visiting Pompeii,Hereulaneum and Vesu vius, and observing their relative positions and the appearances whieh they now present, the reflecting traveller is naturally led to in quire, or at least to speculate, respecting the nature of the extraordinary occurrence by which the cities met their fate. Standing on the top of Vesuvius and facing toward the bay, Pompeii lies seven miles distant, on the left—Herculaneum in front, directly between the mountain and the water, and Naples fl or 6 miles distant on the right. That Hercula neum should have been overflowed with lava, while Pompeii was covered with ashes only, is easily accounted for by difference of situa tion j but how it came to pass that Naples suffered but little injury, while Pompeii at a greater distance from the mountain, was de stroyed, is not so eas'ly explained. I was impressed, however, with the belief that the present shape of Vesuvius affords, when carefully observed, the means of arriving at a highly probable solution of the problem. It seemed to me that there could be but little doubt that in the great eruption of A. D. 79. a very large section of what was then the highest part of the mountain, was exploded into fragments and blown into the air; thus lowering the elevation very materially, and opening an immense erater, at least two miles across. In this terrible explosion, it would seem that the side next Pompeii was the weaker ; and thus the bursting in this direc tion extended farther down than on the side next Naples, which being composed of rock | was firm enough to resist the pressure;—the j effect of which would be, of course, to project the materials exploded toward the former, but away from the latter city. The base of . the great cone which encloses the present j larger crater, appears to occupy the area of j the vast crater which was opened by that wonderful eruption. But as the subject can not be well explained without a sketch ex hibiting the present appearance of the moun tain, I will not dwell upon it here. Among the things which strike one singu larly at Naples, is the very general use of asses among the laboring people. You see them every morning thronging into the city in great numbers, laden with immense piles of produce for the market, and indeed with, all sorts of commodities, contained in large panniers, or in bundles almost equal in size to the animal itself ;—the man, woman or boy who may chance to drive each donkey, al most invariably holding on by the tail with one hand, and carrying in the other a heavy whip. You tind themalsoin the charge of men and boys about the streets saddled and bridled, to be let to those who may have occasion for their services. There was something quite oriental in the picture which they presented ; and having all of us read the ‘Arabian Nights ’ we were from the first so greatly taken with these long-eared worthies—perhaps by a kind of fellow feeling—that we resolved on our last morning at Naples to have a ride a la pictur esque. AVe accordingly took live asses for our party, and a guide, with a muleteer—if that is not an Irish bull—to drive us ; for let it be known that the above named illustrious and classic animals, have such an endowment of Homan firmness, that no amount of cudgel ling by the rider will avail to accelerate their pace at all. Imagine then a Yankee lawyer of distinction—a partner in a large mercantile house in New York—a senior member of Uowdoin College, and our humble reverence, with our Freneh-Iialian valct-de-place, all mounted with white hats of broad venerable brims upon our heads, and stout cudgels chiefly hv way of flourish in our hands, and followed by our rear guard on foot, attached after the usual manner to a tail!—imagine us —I say, advancing in grave procession through one of the principal streets of Naples, as we made our way into the country, with a due amount of mutual gratulation and good nature, and it will be perceived how rare must have been the entertainment both to ourselves and others. It was a memorable ride ; although marked in its progress by no extraordinary in cident, except that one of the donkeys slyly managed, by some vicious trick, or other, to throw his rider completely over his head, with no other injury than that of being rolled somewhat uncomfortably in the dust. In the course of this ride we visited the Campo Santo, a place of very serious interest. It is a rural cemetery, about three miles from the city and is one of the. most beautiful I have ever seen. It equals Mount Auburn in natural loveliness, and has more of art about it, especially more architecture and more flowers. We were struck also, with the simple and sententious beauty of many of the inscriptions, some of which we copied. The following may serve as in example. Fratelli ! tillivi le noslre ossa aspettano II sunno dull’ angelica tromba Ed il giudizio di Dio! This may be rendered—“Brothers ! Here our ashes await the sound of the angelic trump, and the judgment of God.” After spendiug here every moment we could spare, we returned to the city and went again to the museum of Fine Arts, to see the paintings; of which there is alarge and valua ble collection. In one room are arranged the originals, by the most eminent of the Old Masters—Raphael, Titian, Domenicluno, Gui do, Carracci, and others. In this room many students were engaged in copying. On look ing around at these productions of exalted genius—of men who in their branch of art at tained the highest niche by common consent, in the temple of Fame,—who are to painting, what Homer and Virgil and Milton and Shake speare are to poetry—there seemed a kind of grandeur in tire position they occupied. Time and the praise of many generations may in some small measure have exaggerated their merits; but who in later days has equalled or promises to equal the best of their great works ? With this visit we finished with Naj les to our great regret. It was some satisfaction in taking leave of a place so charming, that Borne waited us. As there was little to be seen in travelling by land to Borne except the Pontine Marshes, with which we had no particular desire to make acquaintance, we preferred to lake the Steamer back to Civita ^ ectia which is at once an expeditious and comfortable route. 1\ S. At this point, some special reasons which it is not necessary to mention, render it convenient to the writer of these sketches to take a short “recess” of two or three weeks ; after which he will pursue his way through Home, Florence, Venice, and so on to the end.
