A correspcndert of the Boston Journal gives a
r, long account of the trial trip upon the new rail.
a wey up Mount Washington, from which the fol
e. ming is condensed :
" it is now a trifle over ten years since Mr. Syl
vester Marsh divulged his plans for the construe
of tio of a steam railway up the steep and rugged
t ides of Mount Wahoto gton. His scheme wa geo
Ierally re ga ded as a visionary one, but he at length
succeeded in demonstratlug its feasibility to the
he atisfaction of sime of the most experienced rail
roid men in New England, who forthwith gave
their energetic aid to the really great enterprise.
Two years ago a small section of the road was
opened. and a public trial resu!ted in entire su:-
cd ctes. Lrst year a similar trial over an extension
if the railway gave equally gratifying results.
I esterday witnessed the formal openiug of the
se road teo point three quarters of a mile from the
so eunimit of the mountain, or for something over
to-Lausrd tof its ewsae length. A brief sketch ,of
the entern.rlee, at d some further account of the
of peculiar noechanim by which the road is ope
rated, will be interesting in the present connec
"g The rai'way begins. as before mentioned, at a
, point seven miles from the White Mountain
House. The White Mountain House is situated I
15t,. feet shove the level of the sea and the rail
way station is about 1117 feet above that, or about
2I.5N feet above the level of the sea. Mount
be Washington is 62s5 feet abhove the level of the
sea, according to the generally accepted measure
ed merts, although some old barometrical ooserva
't ons five It a slightly increased aititude, so that
r. it will be seen that a grade of about 3600 feet has
to be overcome. The distance to be traversed by
the railway is two mtiles and thirteen-sixteenths.
ot I he average grade is 1300 feet to the mile, but I
several places this is increased to something over
1700 feet to the mile, or one foot in three. The
road was completed last year to a point known as
Wauaibek Junction. one mile and eight rods from
in the starting point. Waumbek Junctin is so called
from the fact that the abyan bridle pab we
here joined by the path which led from the Waum
ar bek House, or Jefferson.
ad ' Work was began again on the railroad this
season May 7th, sad in the eighty-four workiag
days ensuing, up to yesterday, It had advanced a
further distance of a trifle over a mile. or to within
three quarters of a mile of the summit The total
he rise frim the lower end to the point now reached
ie to snout 2.00 feet, leaving about 800 feet to be

Christina Nilseo, the young Swedish cantatrice
who will visit the United States next fall, sad
whom many excellent critics have uuheaslttlagly
pronounced folly equal to Jenny Lind, is of very
humble descent. M. Mahalle gives ia his work,
'" les Joles Aetrioes de Paris," the following
interetming sketeh of her past life :
It is meowtig. The skies, all black as they are
with night and cold. commence turning gray in
the east. After awhile the sunea rises in the mist.
A vague bluesah light seems to descend seth tse
snow flakes. Here and there pines and birchee,
covered with icicles, tremble and moan in the
wind. In a sort of ravine are to be seen a few
wretched cabins; from the snow clad roofs,
made of bark, ascend blue clouds of smoke;
those who look out of the low windows of these
cabhns behold a flock of ravens on the deazling
white plains.
We are far from Paris, fifty leages from Stook.

The poor people here live la the same room
with their cattle. A miserable stove emits painful
sounds in the middle of the fidor. On the ground,
in a motley group, lie goate sheep and obhlldre,
stretching their necks wistfully towards the kettle
on the hearth. These children are dressed in
rags. 'Under a window in the roof site the
mother spinning. The father, saoking a pipe,
sits in the corner of the room. Ever now sad
then are heard from without the merry a ,ands of
jingling sleigh belle, or the doll noise of a hores
galloping past. a sleigh darts past with lightalag
spree. In the same manner there appears and
disappears a fur rap. for robe, a forjacket; then
the father's voice drowns the noise of the spis
niug wheel, the seething kettle on the hearth, and
the lissing green wood in the stove.
' ( hristma !"
From the group of children there emerges the
shapely head of a very pretty girl, surrounoded by
a crown of straw colored, soft and silky hair.
" Christin, take your violin and go to the
height! '
In this manner Christina Nilsson entered upon
her career as an artiste. What a contrast be
tween the highways on which she once, when a
little girl, played the violin, and the magsidoeat
salon in which so enthusicstid audience now
lavishes applause on the great cantatrice! And
yet not more than ten years have elapsed sinos

man ascended that height. heard the little peasmet
girl play the violin, caused her to conduct him to
her father, and said to him, " Nileson, I want to
make you an offer. You daughter is a talented
child. Intrust her to me, and I am ware I oas
make a great artiste of her." Old Nilsson, a sharp
and cle-beaded pea-aset, knew full well that his
daughter possessed extraordinary musical taists;
and inasmuch as the aristocratic stranger gave
him several gold pieces. and promised to send him
more money tree time t bUe. he did not hesitat

her brothers sad seters. and shedding a few tears,
accompasSed the gentleman who had already woe

treated her.
Two days afterward Christina reached with his
the'city of Gothenabrg, where a new outfit was
purchased for her, and where everybody who
saw her in her new dress, exclaimed, " what an
extraordinary pretty child." Her protector them
took her to a boarding school, where she was e
industrious and made such rapid progres that a
year afterward she could already be sent to Stock.
