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.
