SUNBURY AME1U0AN AND SHAMOKIN JOURNAL.
O" We publish this week another of Major Dewart' letters to G. B Youngman, Esq., omitting a paragraph in the begin ning and also one in conclusion,' complain ing that "he understood that some of the people in Sunbury disliked bis letters and criticised them." We think, upon reflec tion, that the Major himself would have omitted the latter. We have not heard a single individual eipresi any dislike ol these letters, but the reverse. As regards criticism, every man who appears in print, must expect it, and the Major, we are sure, is too much of a democrat to be willing to restrain the "liberty ol speech, or tb liberty of the Press." The correspondent who communicated this idle gossip might have been, we think, employed in convey ing more agreeable and useful information. But of Rome and ils lions. The greaiest attraction now in a perleot slate of preserva tion In this city is the Basilick or Church of St. Peters. It is on the opposite side of the Tiber to what is now the main city. You approach the Church throuch the Piazza of St. Peter which is 358 yards-long. The col onnades on each side are half circles, with the entrance in one centre and the Church in the other. They are of the colossal Doric order, formed by four rows of eolumns on each side. The colonnades are fifty-si feet wide and sixty-one high, and contain 284 columns supporting a balustrade on which are placed 192 statues, eleven amt a half feet high. In the centre of the area is a high obelisk, sustaining a cross on ils top. A fountain is situated on each sida of the obelisk throwing water nine teel above ils apex which falls into two granite basins filly feel in circumference. Passing through the Piazza you come to the Church, the founda tion of which was laid in the year 1506, and eighteen successive Popes were employed in ils erection. Painting, sculpture, mosaics, the art of melting bronze, gilding, carving, and all the other arts have contributed to embellish this Church, the most splendid not only in Home but in the world. In ils front aro eiyht cohims eight feet and a half in diameter, and eighty-eight feet high, sup polling a balustrade on which ate situated thiiteen statues-each seventeen feet high, re presenting our Saviour and the Apostles. In the portico are several doors opening into t he Church, ono of which has a bronze cross upon it, and is opened only once in 25 years, at the lime of the jubilee. The interior is in the form of a Latin cros, and is divided into three naves, and at the end of ihe mid dle or great nave is the bronze statue of St. Peter, wilh tho great toe of his riuht fot I i t craly and truly kissed away by the laiihful. I saw dozens kissing il during the shoil lime I was looking at it. The tomb of 5t. Peter is under the high altar, and it is said contains parts of both his and St. Paul's bovlies. It in surrounded by a circular maible balustrade, on which 112 lamps are kepi continually burning. Tho al tar over lha tomb is supported by four columns of gilt bionze,, 3-1 feet high), and in the centre is a globe supporting llto cross. Tho total height of the aliar is 80 feet, and at this aliar on Christmas day, t heard the Pope himself, surrounded by his Cardinals and Bishops and a guard of 500 soldiers, say High Mass. Over this altar is the main cupola ol Ihe church, which is 426 feet high from the pavement. Above the cupola is the ball, reached by an iron ladder, and very difficult ol ascent. 1 was the only one of my party that went up into it. The ball, it is said will contain 16 persons, but I think they would hjvo tu be tightly packed in. On the roof of lha main chuich are the workshops of the men who are kept constantly employed in keeping the church in repair. They are a row of one story buildings. If you desire to look down from the cornices, you ascend to the cupoia from the roof at two places. The cornices have an iron railing aiour.d them, and two person can walk on ihem around the cupola abreast wilh perfect safe ty From the dome you have a beautiful view of the city and all the surround ing country. This church contains II cupo las, 96 marble columns, and 140 statues; is 575 feet long in the clear, and, under the cross, is 417 (eet broad. The cost of build ing is said to have been over 50 millions of dollars. It is connected with the Vatican, the Pope's private residence, by a grand hall and stairway. The Vatican contains 4000 rooms and galleries, enough, one wouTd think, for a man who can have neither wife nor family. In one of the galleries the Pope keeps a number of artists constantly employ ej making large mosaics of the old Popes from their portraits. These are intended for the new church of St. Paul, outside the city gates. Many of the Popes are already there iu the niches, each of these mosaics being about six feet high and four feet across, It requires a year's time to make one, and Ihe price is 500 scudi each. (A scudi is 103 of our cents ) The new church of St. Paul has already been 150 years in building, and it is supposed that it will take 150 years more te complete it. Rome has a newer and fresher aspect than the other cities of Italy, and looks more like Philadelphia than any city 1 have yet seen This is Ihe case from Ihe (act that modern Rome is built upon the side of the Tiber op cosite mostf the old city, and what there was of ancient Rome on this side of the Ti ber is all filled up. The Forum which is in the modern city, is thirty feel below the pre eat surface, (il was excavated by Napoleon, nd the Tarpean rock, behind Ihe Capitol, is only about 70 feet high, whereas, when Rome was in its glory, it was three times that height, The only part of the Campus that remains is the Carso, and even that is lined with bouses. We leu noma anu came io r lorence, mo oapital of Tuscany, by the Sienna road, a distance of about 200 miles, 150 of which we posted, and Ihe balance, from Sienna to ... n i ri . 1 Florence, we came by rail, lorence is a ve rv ancient walled oily of about seven miles in circumference, situated at the foot of the Ap penines, and is divided by the river Arno into twe enuai nans, it is cancu .riuicncu me Fair, and is the teat of the anoient family ol the Medici. The streets are wide and well paved, but without side walks. The river is bridged at all the principal streets, and the middle bridge possesses the great curiosity of having a row of houses on each side of it all the way across Ihe river. They are prin cipal'y jewellers' stores, and extend out be yond the bridge, hanging over the liver, sup ported by heavy timbers underneath which are placed slantwise against Ihe bridge. Some of Ihe. houses are three stories high. In the church of Santa Croce in this city are the tombs of Mk-hnel Angelo, the poeli Machievelli, and Gallileo. On las'. Tuesday we went to Pisa to see Ihe leaning lower, one of Ihe seven wonders ofihiwoild. Pisa is numbered among the twelve ancient cities of Etruria, and is built on both sides of the Arno, as is Florence. It now contsinS but about 20,000 inhabitants, although a thousand years ago hundreds of thousands lived within its walls. The lean ing tower was finished in 1070, though com menced some centuries previous. It is 170 feet high, and 12 feet out of the perpendic ular. There is an outer and an inner wall, between which is Ihe stairway to the top, and about every 40 feet a balcony running round tho outer wall,' supported by pillars commencing on Ihe ground. There are two hundred of theso pillars, and on the top is a chime of seven bulls (one for each of Ihe wonders of the world) that are rung every Jay at 12 o'clock. Across Ihe slieet from ihe lower is Ihe Cathedral, a fine church, con taining the old iron lamp suspended from the cupola, that gave Galileo the idea of the pen dulum in clocks for thfl mensurmeiil of time. Behind this church is the Campo Santo, or buriiil place, smiotuuled by sixty-two arches, all tho ground in the interior of which was brought from the Holy Laud. From the top of Ihe leaning tower you have a fine view of Pisa and I ho Vajjey of l ho Arno. . It is some what dillicult to ascend the tower, bnt we all went np. But I must bring this desultory epistle to n close. Tub Washington Star says that "the Qua ker Delegation" which camo here not long since to remonstrate with the President rela tive lo the proposed ungodly enmse of Ihe Administialiuii with icference totheNebras. ka bill are stilt with us. They havo proba bly given up tho Executive ns a hard or hardened case, and are now attending to the moie ungodly, the Senate and House of Rep resentatives, among whom ihpy are opera- ing, as though born and bred in the lobby. Their argument is against "disturbing the Missouri Compromise." Rise in Crock tuv. Among the many ar ticles that have advanced in price in our mar ket says the Boston Tiaveller, is thai of crock ery ware, w hich, owing to the high price of coals and other materials in the SiafToidshire Potteries, England, they have been obliged to raise their piices from twenty to thirty per cent., and consequently, a riso here must follow. The sales of Holi.owat's Ointment and Pii.i.s have wonderfully increased lately, we presume, therelore, that the well known virtues ihe medicines posses are becoming universally appreciated, thousand of persons of both sexes testify tliurnully that theii effect is miraculous ; they act conjoint ly so directly upon Ihe system, the one internally and oth er externally, thai ths most serious cases will readily yield In their wonderful power. .
