I nskt-d myself, What will become), ol' them next f" Coming ages must answer. ' Doubtless, Uud has some use for them in the future. The curs cross1 the- river Iu sight of "flawk's Nest" and run down on the opposite side, and the scenery begins to lose some of its extreme roughness. But as the intense interest-in (be rivi-r scenery ubatecf,"it only gave place to iu turtht iu the railroad itself. . . The construction of this railroad is a won derful achievement of mind over matteri Ilun- tinglon, whj projected the road, has made good his right to a place in the front rauk of rettt, prncticul engineers." For many inlh a lis course Is laid through olid rock. - In going Irom Kanawha FhIIb to Talcolt the cars pass hrough lour tunnels, one of which is a mile and a quartei long. 1 lit ee tunnels are cut through solid rock, In the base of the worm tnlns. ' f We reached Talcolt about half-past 5 o'clock in the eVt-oing. f ,-Uert is a d' tot, atiij a small seltl't-inrtif, Vith tvt-o stores', but nolintcl. We stayed at a privato bouse until morning, then started at bulf-pnsl 9 o'clock, in I lie stage lor he Red Sulphur Springs, a dUnuice of thir ecu miles across ihc mountains. There wi re seven patn-engi-re beside tnysell and Mr. fjhul- fer. Four nf lliem were from Philadelphia orto from Sou lb Carolina, one a resideut of these parts and the othi r one 1 did notsleiirn where he was from. The South Curoliniitn was emphnlicully Houtln rn in sentiment and feeling, and disliked vry much In luar any thing suid nbout the.war and the emauciia lion of the sloves. I Judge he has been a rich slave-holder. He said the white people were now ruled by Sniggers" of course, we- -know what he means. This turning ol the tnbles appears lo be Vt-ry disagreeable lo him fl in iy be this condition of things has something to do w ith his poor stole of health. If so, 1 think sulphur water -will not do much towards moving the eaute of his suffering. This stage ride is a very rough passage in life for a sick person. The roads are not only hilly, bul seriously rough, and in some places, enough to jolt the bottom of a man's 'stomach out.

When the Romans conquered Car thage they were assisted by the native chiefs; and ut first it aiiered as if Af rica would become a civilized province in the fashion of Spain and Gaul. ' Ber ber regiments served in the army; Ber ber princes were educated in Home, and soon became distinguished as historians and philosophers. Bui the deiert was impregnable and ' continually poured fresh hords upon the Tell, or cultivated land. In Algeria the Romans were strong ly established, and the ruins of their out posts are yet to be seen far away inland. But in Morocco they were sett led only on the coast. Algeria was wisely and tem perately governed under toe republic; and Cicero describe it as a peaceful province; but, when the bad days of the empire came, it wait disregarded to a cornfield, and was forced to feed, ; at its own expense, to the Roman lazzaroni. The Governors became satraps, . the great laud owners were accused of con spiracy, their estates might escheat to the crown, and the people were made agricultural serfs. Moreover, the wild region between the Tell and the Sahara contained the game-preserves of Rome. The lion was a royal beast, licensed to feed on the cattle of the shepherd, aud on the shepherd himself if it preleired him. Wfcen the Arabs invaded Africa they did not merely settle ou the coast. This people, accustomed to deserts, conquer ed the whole country; but they also ad ded persuasion to force, recognized the Berbers as thier kinsmen, declared them to be Arabs iu their origin, aud allured them to accept the mission of the proph et. The races mingled, aud the nation of the Moors were formed. At that time Jews abounded in Barbary; their brethren across the straits were being persecuted by the Christian Goths, aud the African Jews, is said, instigated the invasiou of Spain. ' The Moors treated with indulgence the Europeans whom they conquered, and acquired the arts of the Romans aud the O reeks: Andalusia civilized Alrica; nnd the city of Morocco became the rival of Cordova and Seville. Between the lit erary meu of the two countries an aim able controversy would ofteu arise as to which might claim pre-eminence iu learning aud the arts, and it appears to have been allowed that Mexico was .not inferior to Spain. . -. i The existence of a civilized North Africa 60011 made its intlueuce felt afoss thedesirt... - 1 he camel was unknown in Carthage, and but rarely employed iu the Roman days; but now these auimals were intro duced in thousands; the Sahara voyage could be made with comparatively fa cility.

A day or two since "MaiciiM" 'turned up ml.1rii, and his pall in Windsor announced that he ha gone to Savannah, Ga., to fee his dying1 mother. It oeem that the thief wanted to go to Chicago, and fearing arrest ou this side, lie disguised himself as, a clergyman,' having 011 the standing Collar, white choker, and double breast ed black coat, a regular man 6f the cloth.

The fellow asscrti that thus dis gn'B :d he talked with the officials of the ferry bout and with a policeman 011 this gide, and his questions were promptly answered and his disguise unsuspected. He was in Chicago three days, going about in the role of a minister, aud it is believed that he "lifted enough grueu banks to make the excursion proti table. He started for home Tuesday evening, while waiting in the depot for the tram to leave, he noticed a portly good-tempered man evidently with a full wallet, wiping his mouth as if it had just had a drink of something cheering. "Match es" at ouce took the man aside and read him a lecture on the siu of swallow ing uiint-julps and sweetened brandy. The man, who is reported to be a Bos touian, interested in the sugar-stave bus iiiess, pleaded to have a weakness which should have been suppressed long ago, but for family trouble, and the two suon became we'.! acquainted. When the train started both occupied the same seat, and their conversation for the next three hours was on such topics as to make a man feel nearer to that good place beyond the clouds. "Matches" finally 'introduced the sub ject of cholera morbus, in order to get back to the practical world, and he show ed the stranger a bottle of stuff which he said had been put up for him in Buf falo. The Bostou man tasted, and the taste was so good that he wished he bad the "morbus" a little in order to cure it. He was pressed to "take hold," as the liquor was a preventive rather than a cure, aud up went the bottle again aud agaiu. About midnight the Boston man ,was a picture of happiness. , He slept w ithout a break until he reached De troit, and was then so stupid that if it hadn't been for the "preacher" he might have walked out of the wrong end of the depot. His intention was to go East with the other passengers, and why he didn't is more than he can tell. He woke up at 3 o'clock in the afternoon t j find I i usclf in bed at a small hotel on Woodbridge street west. It is need less to say that he had been robbed of his cold watch and wallet the latter con taining several hundred dollars. 1 ! What Protection Has Done.

In this connection it is pleasant to note that all the elements pertaining to unsettled state of foreign iron, coal and wages markets, are decid edly in favor of American manufactur ers, and at the present time English bar iron cannot be imported except at heavy loss. The London 7'imes, of a recent a date, says the wonderful developement of iron and hardware industries of the Unitod States cause serious apprehen sion in the hardware district of Eng land, of which Birmingham is the centre; and this appreheusiou is cofinned by the marked diminution of orders for certaiu classes of hardware, to the manufactur ers of which have hitherto found in the American market their best customers. It may also be added t hat American productions in this respect are already supplanting English goods in Canada, and - to- some cxteut in Australia. ' A "well informed correspondent" in the Birmingham Pott, writing Irom - New York, says that the day.or.tlje , Sjihof Enirlish hardware iu the Luited -States has almost departed. ' In" some few spec ial articles, such as Rodger's cutlery, British manufacturers may be able to undersell, but the tiuperiority of Yankee skill aud iugeuuity will force- a market iu England itself for many articles of Americau hardware; that Yankee 'cut lery will appear on English dinner ta bles, and Yankee saws, augurs and chis els be perfcrred by the carpenters of Birmingham and fchefheld. And thus American manufacturers have turned to pivli'able account tho opportunity af forded by the "present course of e vents iu the iiaigUbh labor market. . - ., Boston Globe. Boston Globe.
