A SUMMER IN EUROPE.
MONT BLANC—TETE NOIR.
Th Talo of Chamounjr it Tary beBtiful'
but I don't think I wonld lilta to lira, in ii. It
il wot Id by itself but in from'the rly And
ha lata beam, of the god of day, and from lb
life-giving braexea which aweep orar tha ocean
and the broad prairiea of the Weit. One feel,
too aa if he were separated by barriers reach
ing almost to the heavens, from tha coin pan
ionship of men, and debarred front anj par
ticipalion in the affairs of the living world
which is withont. And then the works of Na
ture aronnd are on aogrand a scale, that hif
man thoughts, oares, sympathies and aapira
lions, and even nan himself seems ignoble
and inaigniCoant. I was about to write that
it is a place of all others for a misanthrope
but no inch man oonld look npoa these eter
nal mountains with their hoary heads, with!
out remembering the Creator for whom they tea
lifj, and His injunction ; " love thy neighbor
as thyself." It is a good place to stay in i
little while, but it ia a "pent up Utica" that 1
imagine a restless soul won Id struggle in likej
an eagle in a cage, if he were condemned to
abide in ilfor auy great length of time. '
Vtf were favored with delightful weather
and one of the rarest pleasure I aver knew
waa to lit out in front of the hotel and gale,
while hour after boor passed at tb King of
Mountains and bis royal court. It lequires
time spent in this way, with olose observation
and thought to realize the immensity of these
heights. They are so like other hills their
proportions are so even aud harmonious, that
until we saw the clouds that sail highest ia the
deep of the Summer sky come up to them and
wrap themselves like turbans around their
heads, we bad no just idea of their towering
majesty. ... I,... i
Clouds in Switzerland ate generally the tour.
Uta worst enemies, and, when they are heavy
with the undelivered ahowers theynoat lowdown
upon tha mountain aides and shut out from
him all their beauty and grandeur. But these
summer clouds, were a gracious boon to os,
and as they came np thns to th mountains
they gave to fancy a wida range for pleasant
flights. They were ships, it suggested, in th
ocean of space, and the peaks are their earthly
wharves. Or perhaps, they are th gentle
mistresses of tba mountains, and com to
twine thir white arms lovingly about them, to
lavish sweet caresses oa their thnnder-scarred
brows, and to whisper to them purest word, of
love. Perhaps they are the mountain thought
coming to them like tha soul-stirring concep
tion! of the orator or th poet, all fieetitifal
and glorious, from th Universal Source of in
telligence and light Or It may be, they are
white-winged messengers from God, sent to
ing with the mountains that great by ma of
praise and glory which though inaudible mof
tal ears, since "the morning stars sang to.
gether," all created things have been singing
to the Creator. ,,
One evening th aky was suddenly darken
ed, the clouds rolled up in thunderous masses
and sent their arrows of fir against these
passive monsters and then it seemed as if th
spirits of the Power ol the air, were banded
in battle array to cruah th world togs who
had reared themselves so boldly among them-
Poels have long ago celebrated the glories
of Ml Blanc, and have drawn inspiration
from bt presenc for many thoughts that
men will not "willingly let die.", Colcridgea
'Ilymn before Sonria in the valley of Cha-
aoouny" gives a glorious and befitting voice
to Nature, and shows us more, probably, than
any other on of bia productions, bow ex
haustless and original was his genius. . I gave
an extract from it In a former letter, and no
reader of mine, I ant sure, will ,rproe me if
I give another bare.

with whom we jpent hoars wh:ch are now
among our tnnnivst "memories of foreign
and. The vale ahnunds in beautiful glaciers
and cascades, many of whirh we were com
pelled, from htck of time, tb leave unseen.
On our wsy back to Nfsrtigny we first rode
up the Valley almost to the foot of the Col de
Balrae, and then turned to the left to take th
easier, though longer route by the Tete Noir.
We thus avoided tha precipitous and danger
ous ascents which made tbe other so exciting-,
and ShW-iaetjRad, a grand and gloomy defile,
whose wonders opened to ns new at every
tep. Black crags frown at eaeh other across
it, as if they war about to begin a titanic
warfare. Monstrous orug, overhang the path
way so far that you wonder why they do not
fall upon yon and crush yon, and cliffs upon
th other tide, look as if they also were sav
agely wondering why their comrades do not
destroy yon. '' A torrent rushes noisily along
beneath you, and the pathway leads one on a
narrow shelf which seems suspended bttween
earih and heaven. ...
