Of till places in Home, I think I w anted ni'iro than all to go to the Forum ; so we drove thither after lunch on Friday past T10 Jan's forum ami column to the grand ruins of Ihe Hi. 111:111 Forum, back nl the Capital. How splendid nre these ruius ! It was rather difli o;dt to study out by the Guide book tho vari ous columns nud temples, but my ideas were at last arranged so thai I could enjoy it till. Directly back of the Capilal is 11 large excayu tl iu many feet deep, where stand the arch of S.'ptimus Seberus, the ruiiaining sixteen col umns of the temple of Saturn, three w hile, fluted pillars of the temple of Vespasian, mid ihe foundation of ihe Scuoia Xantha. Uut the varies columns are so well known that it is useless to go into detail. But it is thrilling to stand bo'.'oio them and admire nnd wonder at the grandeur of days past, and ut the dura bility of these monuments. On the other side of the wooden bridge on "which we stand, stretches the Forum, w ith the Via Sacra be yond. Tho grounds are rich in wondertul re mains; the Haailica of Julia, Temple of An toninus aud Faustina j Ihe Arch of Titus, near w hich is a small post ot tho Temple of Veuus and Home, and beyond, the Arch of Constar. line, and finally, the Coliseum. We spent some time in waudering uniting ils haunted passages, discovering the dungeons for prison ers, mid studying out its plan as fur as post-i-ble. One side of ihe outside walls is still al most complete showing tho three styles of architecture Doric, Ionic and Corinthian, 0.10 ubove the other. There ure broken col U'lins on the top, remains of a covered galery a'love. I was not disappointed in it in the least ; it is such a grand structure, aud so beautiful in its ruins covered willi moss and vegetable life. It is said there are four hun dred nud tweuty species of plants growing th'.-re. It cannot excite much wonder w hen one is show u a thing and merely told that it is very undent, but if one looks ut the Coliseum without infortunium it i enough, its age speaks for itself. We meet travelers often here who are "doing" Home, who confess they never liked ruins, never believe In any of them, llud nothing but dirt aud decay iu their crumbling walls, but us it it Home they must see It, but us last us possible.. lam thankful to be able to believe the majority appreciate, at least in parts, Home's glories. Three weeks is but time enough lo huve a glimpse, uu. idea of tho city, but that time used well, seeing on ly the most proflablo sights,, storing well the memory, wi.l sufllco lo be a life long Joy. You have heni'd often of .the cross in the center of the Arena, and the fourteen shrines about it. Black and red priests were kneeling at them successively, aud many others wero using the holy day for prayers. It is uglily the Coliseum bus been 10 much destroyed by using Its material to build other editlces, and to supply tho defect fresh bricks have been put in 1 much of the original was ofbrick but very different from our present structures in solidity. Saturday, for our tii'ornlug work, we visited four private palaces, to seo a few good pictures anioug the collections. In the "Soarro" there is Raphael's "Violin Player," a simple, beautiiul piece; also Leonardo da Viuci's "Modesty aud Vanity," showinjr a flue con. trasl between two female' faces. At the "Spa- da" is the statue .of Pomper, at the foot of which Caesar fell. The "ftospiglloii" bus the famous fresco of Guidu's "Aurora." That is a lovely piece, the grace of the seven figures around Apollo's Charriot, and the colors of the dresses ore exquisite. . Fiuslly, -In the handsome Barbariui puluce is that tweet face of Beatrice Cenci. I never understood it be fore, from the copies. Iu the afternoon, we went to admire Ihe Pantheon;' Haphael's remains rest within, under oue of the modern' altars'," erected for Roman Catolio worship. It seems loo bad to destroy the simplicity of the old Pagan tem ple by turning it Into a church and erecting, besides, two ugly bell-towers between Ihe dome and the front portico, but I do not like to complain of Michael Aogelo, for It wat be who discovered Its nprirmiriato urotiorllons for (VUlian worship. In n church m-nr tlii-, built upon a site of a templo of Minervs, there la a flue statue of his, of Christ. Here, too, Fra Angi'lieo lies. Now for a drive 011 the ' I'lnt io." You re member that the 1'inr.zn del Pokio Is at the north of the diy, by ti1B VilU Uorgheae. Overlooking the drive up the villa on the eflst of the pin is the I 'melon hill, where all the fashionable world or Home drive an hour or two before sunset. At half past four o'clock, Wedensdays nnd Suturduya, the band treats Ihe public to music. There is an extensive View from this drive over Ihe w hole cily, be yond which, to (ho south. west, rise the con spicuous tops of the Jatiiculiim pines ; farther to tho right, St. IVter's dome ; tiways off, the Pantheon's top and domes and towers of in numerable churches. Tho Prince or Wules drove up the hill as we c.ine down, looking much changed after his sickness, my English companion eaid. His delicate wife was by his side, but Ihtre was no attendant but a loot inan, as he travels us "Lord Chesterfield", merely. Tho first raiu for us in Home, wns on Easter and that a pour. It is a sort of farce to try to see religious ceremonies this year ; but I said to myself when a crowd in St. IVter's tried to scare me away "What ! be in Home on the greatest day of the year aud not bear service ut Ils, and the world's great Cathe dral?" Sol went at ten o'elook. TUsiv. tine Chupcl wns the pluce of attraction, to day, ns the Pope, I understand, made his np peiirjuce there at curly mass. The Chapel is small, nnd permits were not lo bo hud by the lime 1 heard ot it, so I had to bo content with it mass in Ihe chapel of the choir, uud w ilh the sight of a gold mitre set wilh jewels, on tho head of somebody the crow d prevented me from seeing perhaps Cardinal Antiuelli, tor ought I know, and listening, until too tired to stand longer, to the rich, sweet voices of a choir of twenty men, This paid mo for mv trouble. During the long organ playing, hard ly a word was spoken among the people who stood about the door us fur as they could heur. OnJ-brmer occasions, the Pope olilciated at the High Altar, that would huve been a sight lo sec the Pope, Cardiuals and ptiest and a mass of spectators. I cnnnot tell you about St. Petei's until after another sight. I must 1 :t it grow upon inc. It certainly is won drously lar'o nnd magnificent, but the pro portions are to good it does uot strike nto at o ice as stupendou -, as I had imagined. I cau see how people in a bud humor might tind everything diminished in size nnd grand eur ; but if one is right in themselves how can he but enjoy aud lovo Home. I took a stroll up to the high altar and then could hardly hear the organ and voices in the sec ond chupcl below. The altar is un.ler Ihe dome where tho transepts cross and beyond that is a great disluuce to the end of the church, with a chapel on either side. I stood in a littlu corner at this end, under Ihe shadow or a huge stulue, and looked away to the end opposite. How small I fch! Below the trail sept ure four greut chapels on euch side. In the left transept ure the Conl'essionuls for nil different languages, (I look special note of Hilda's.) As I sut on a kneeling-stool iu the nave,. I noticed a man s hat resting on Hie head of a cherub opposite, that helps support the maible buslu for holy water; it looked like a doll s hut on an n (lull's bead, whereas before I had supposed the cherub but lillle over life size, the proportions all mound are so good. Peter's toes, ot course, wns being kissed as usual, some wiping the worn bronze Willi Ihe handkerchief, whilu two liltlo boys climbed up with nil their strength to imprint a kiss, never thinking of such preliminaries. ' M. H. T. Recipe kou Making Ciikap IIahd Soap. Procure a box or concentrated lye, put to It one gallon oi' boiling wuler; let it stand ovir night to clear ; draw carefully from the sedi ment uud put it into a largo k -ttlo to boil ; then add four pounds of cle tu grease, melted, stirring it iu slow ly uud well. Let the sub stance bimmer slowly four or six hours, and half 1111 hour before taking oil' add nuothcr gal lon of hot wuli r. Two lablc-spoonsful of pul verized borax and four '.nlik -spoonsful of resin add much to ils detersive qualities. A teacup of suit Is then thrown in. When the soap la thought -to bo done, test it' by dipping tho point of a case knife In it ; if the mass drops cleur and ropy, uud chills quickly, il is soap, und w ill be ready to pour into a well soaked wash-tub ; in a few hours it will bo ready to cut out, Into uny di sired shape, and then plac ed upon boards to dry. Tho cost of litis soup nci-d not i-xce. d two cents it pound, nnd then one knows tliey huve a clean, desirublo article besides. M. H. T. The living Present. "'The present is ull that we have to confront eternity with," said a sage, und uu y leituiiiur that undervalues the pres ent is filial to the highest human inter ests. No lime since the world begun was of such worth ns tho present. Each hour is a link in the golden chain that encircles the worlds.

It is not God's fault. It is our own. He says, Leave the future to ine. Take no thought for the morrow, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink, or wherewithal ye shall be clothed.

An American trim l r in thcOld Woil 1 notici , imoiig the multitude of things that are ll w to his eye, the gntl c ing of agricultural popn'aiiot.s into villages.' He lias been accustomed in his own country to see them distributed upon tho fauna they etiltiva'.e. ' This isolated f:fm-li.e, so universal here, ( blur dot not exist at all iu Ihe greater part of continental Eu rope, or it exists us a comparatively mod ern institution. The old populations, of ail callings and professions, clustered to gether fur sil-ilel'eiise, and b iill walls around themselves. Out from llu so walls, lor miles around, went the tilleis of the soil in the uioriiitig', and back into the gales ihey throiigcd":U niglit.

The early se llers in our own country took the Kimc means to dvletid ihems: Ives liom the treacherous Indian. The towns of Had ley, Hatfield, Nonlipid, and Dcci field, on the Connecticut river, are notable ex ample of this kind of Luilding ; and to this day they remain villages of agrieul luris.s, That this is the way in which farmers ought to live we hae no ques tion, and we wish to say a few words about it. There is some reason lor the general dispiiiion of American nn-n and women to shun jigriculitiral pursuits which the observers and philosophers have been slow lo find. We nee young men push ing everywhere into trade, into mechan ical pursuits, into the learned protcSMous, nilo insignificant clerkships, inki salaried posilioi.s of every sort that will lake ihem into towns and Minicjit and hol.l i hem there. We find it impossible to drive poor people from the cities wilh the threat of starvation, or to coax them w ilh the promise of belter pay and chcaji er litre, l here they stay aud starve, and sicken, and sink. Young women resort to the idi'.ps and the factories rafher than lake service in 'firniels' houses, where they are received as members of the family; ami when they marry, thev seek alliance, when practicable, with mechan ics auu tradesmen who live in villages and large towns. Tne daughteis ot the farmer fly lrom the farms at the fit st opportunity. The towns grow larger all the lime, and, iu New England uf least, the farms are becoming w ider and longer, and the fa'uiing population are iliiniu islied in numbers, and. iu some localities. degraded in quality and character. It all comes to this, that isolated life has very little siguitiuauce to a social being. The social lite of the village cud the city has intense fascination lo ihe lonely dwellers on tht farm, or to a great multitude ot ihem. Especially is this ihe case wilh the young. The youth of both sexes who have seen nothing of the world, have an overwhelming desiro to meet life and to be unung the multitude. They leel their lile to be narrow iu its opportunities and its towards, and the pulsations of ihe great social heart that comes lo ihini in rushing liains and passing steamers and daily newspapers, damp w ith the dews of alniudied brows, fill them wilh loniugs for the places where the rythmic throb is lelt and heard. They are not to bo blamed lor this. It is the most natural thing in the world, it all of lite Were labor, if the great object uf life were the scraping to gether ot a few dollars, more or less, why, isolation without diversion would be economy and profit ; but so long us the object of lile is life, and the best and puiesl and happier ihal can come of it, all needhss isol.iiii n is a crime against ihe soul, and that is a surrender and sacrifice uf noble opportunities, We are, theroi'ore, not sorry to see farms growing largtr, provided those who work I hem gel nearer together; and that is what Ihty uught to do. Any farmer w ho plants himself and his family alone tar funn possible neighbors takes upon himself a terrible responsibility, ll is impossible thai he und ins should e Well developed and thoroughly happr ihere. He will be loisakeu in his old age by the very children for w hom he has made his great sacrilice. They will fly lo the tow us for .he social fond and stimulus for which they have starved.

"The old man," who rides to market and the postotiice, uud mingles more or less in biisiiie.-s with the wurld, gets along toleiably well ; but it is thu stayers ut homo who stiller, Instead of growing wiser uuu uetier as uiey grow old, they loose ull the graces of life iu unmeaning drudgery, und instead of ripening in mind and heart, they simply dry up or decay. We are entirely satis fied that the great curse of farming life iu Americn is ils isolation. It is useless to sty that nun shun the f'aim because they are lazy, The American is not a lazy man anywhere; but he is social, and will fly a life that is uot social to oue that is. It we are to have a larger aud butter population dotted to agriculture, isolation uiusl be shunned, aud the whole policy ot settlement hereafter must be controlled or greatly modified by social considerations.
