MUNIC, BAVARIA, Sept. 4th, 1876. Editor Journal: My last to yon was dated from Verona, Italy, lotn nit. and hone has reached you ere this. The weather at the time of that writing was so excessively hot that I was surprised at myseu at being able to write at all and I had no idea of remaining there until the 30th August but then copious show ers, heavy hail storms and a material change in the temperature, and above all the pleasant surroundings of the manv near and far relations caused the prolonged stay. As stated on the 30th nit, I took the cars at C:30 P. M., arriving here the next day at 1:50 P. M., making the trin over the celebrated Brenner Mountains durine the night The grand mountain sceneries lit np by the moon, then almost full in fact the road passed mostly along high mountains, taking in and traversing the Tyrol. Snow we found and saw rdentv. if not immediately on the road at least on the slopes of the Mountains, sometimes reaching al most down to the road bed, and over coats and wraps were a necessity, even with all the windows down in the usual close and oppressive coupes of the R. R. cars. Since r.y avrival here I have put in the time to best advantage possi ble. I found the city crowded with strangers, representing most all na tions, owintr to the Exposition of Fine Arts of the German Empire, and- upon application at several ho tels found every space and room oc cupied and engaged ahead. But I was sure I could make myself com fortable some other way, and so I made inquiries and secured rooms in a private house at about double the rent usually paid, and though not perhaps as elegantly furnished, I have at least a temporary home and a place to lay down, and I cat where I please and when I please. Traveling is no doubt very in structive and generally considered a pleasure and recreation, but to travel in the month of August in a climate like that of Northern Italy proved to be this year, is surely and most em phatically anything else but pleasure. Railroad cars are not a patent of comfort, and such dust cannot be fonnd in any other conntrj'. Thanks to the change of the sea son and the location of this country, we now can breathe again and even can make good use of a spring over coat in the evening and mornings. It would be of no use tor me to make an attempt of giving a description of this city as I hardly have seen enough of it, and even if time should permit a prolonged stay here I would hardly attempt it I would call it the City of Arts, for I do not suppose there is another one in the world where such a collection of paintings, antiquities and general works of art can be found, where many foreign students make this their home of study, and where at one time the King of the land has devoted such a Capital and such time and attention to the various works of art now to be admired. In the large Museum, with collec tions of Japan, China, part of North America, including Indian antiqni ties, Sandwich Islands and other isl ands in the Pacific Ocean, Lapland, South America and many other coun tries can be seen all that an inquir ing mind wishes to know about those countries. Everything except the living people, for perfect miniatures of the different tribes and nations, and the respective classes and casts amongst them are to be found; fig ures about one foot high, with their costumes (if any worn in their coun try,) collections of utensils in use for house management, their arms, coin, patents of their dwellings, their ships, their mode of worship with numerous complete outfits from places of worship. In fact the for eign traveler has no need to venture abroad he can see the sights right in these halls he can study all he wants. Amongst the collection of oil paiatings, which are very extensive and many in number, can be found the masters of that art represented by some of the finest works in exis tence. The Exposition of Fine Arts of the German Empire, held now in the Crystal Palace here is, I am told, the grandest affair of that kind ever got ten up. I do not mean to say that it should be grander than the Phila delphia Exposition, but in fine arts it will excell anything ever brought out It has been largely patronized by some of the Protestants who have bought liberally. In calling it an Exposition of Fine Arts, I do not mean to say that paintings, scnlpture and such are only to be seen; it really would ap pear to me that the fine works of many trades are represented there (not machinery, for there is no room in tne ouuaing,j in otner words a collection of works of luxury, be thev in the manufacture of furniture, 'tapestry, China-ware, castings, man- ufacture of clocks, paintings, sculp ture, weaving of silks and wool goods, mosaic work, glass-painting, car- 'riaee-making, photographic, copper andnteel plate work, bronze casting, iewelers worK, artinciai nowers, lan cv leather work, cutlery, firearms, in fact of all these and many others the " finest and costliest work to be found, paintings and sculpture work for twenty thousand dollars one job, and a neat one it was. Attractive above all, to me, was the wood work -"from Tyrol, Munic, as a city, pleases me very much. The cleanliness and the qoiet . ness is far more agreeable than the noise and confusion of Vienna. I am told that this Country is in verv prosperous condition suppose hat the Government got a naa share . of the French money as their reward in assisting Prussia to conquer that nation. The military, ot winch there arc only seven or eight thousand here, well uniformed, and a more robust, healthier set of men would be hard to find, and they can fight (the last war has shown it ) The large Sedan Festival, last Sat urday, Sept 2d, was quite an affair. Flags, white, blue, "the Bavarian flae." and the German flnr, hung from hundreds of houses and grand revue by the military, was the order of the dav. In the evening mass meeting of the citizens and oration by the Mayor, in which the dis patches sent by Emperor "William to his wife m Berlin on the day or tne surrender were read, and great joy and excitement evinced after tne speech bv the masses. 'I paid a visit to the Royal Palace, where the public has admission one hour in a day, only under the guid ance of an usherer. Owing to an us ual large crowd of visitors, upwards of two hundred, I did not enjoy the sights so well one never can when there are too many; but, withal, I could not but admire the elegant and artistic interior arrangements. What a patience and what money such a work must cost! In two of the large rooms adjoin ing the ball rooms are a collection of life size oil paintings of the hand somest women living in Europe, at the home of King Ludwig; some of these girls of low rank but extreme beauty, which attracted the atten tion of the King, who had the paint ings made. And well may they at tract any Kin?, or anv other man's attention, if the pictures arc true. Some of them are living now here, the wives of respected citizens; oth ers have since .died, and others again are ranking amongst the highest no bility on the continent On top of the front post ot the Royal Palace is the Winter Garden of the King, where no one is permit ted to enter. I am told that a fair-sized little lake, with pleasure boats, etc., etc., are there, where the lung spends hours amongst his plants and enri osities. In summer time he is never in the city, (taking, suppose, a .pat tern from D. S. A,) but spends most his time in. the mountains, on one or the other of the manj- country villas he owns. It is a nice thing to be King; I have to be satisfied with humming the old song, "King of the Sea." I will now close for the present. I am again getting ready to shift my quarters towards tne dear old home and stamping ground, Switzer land, where I once enjoyed the easy and careless days of sweet sixteen, and when I get through there with my short visit, I will hurry towards the fashionable centre, Paris, and with not too long a stay, wend my way towards my dear new home. Truly yours, LOUIS BAER. THE AMBIGUOUS BEAST.

As an instance of Democratic economy it may be mentioned that Senator Saulsbury has procured a $55,000 Post-office for the town of Do ver, Del., which has but 1,900 inhabi tants. Among several ancient coins found lately near Jerusalem were shekels and half shekels of Judea, which are considered by many to be the most interesting of all ancient coins.

As an excursion party of Republi cans were returning from a Republi can meeting at Greenupsburg, Indi ana, yesterday, the train was stoned and fired upon by a party of Demo cratic scoundrels, at St Paul a small station on the L, C. and L. Railroad. The windows in two cars were completely demolished. Large rocks were thrown, and a bullet came within three inches of a young man's bead. An effort was made to cap turo these Northern Ku Klux, but it was unsuccessful, v A NIGHT OF TERROR. "Mrs. Discomb." said I, one even ing, to a middle-aged lady with whom I was spending an hour in pleasant conversation, "you appear to have met with manv adventures in vour voungcr dav3. You relate a story so well, that I never tire lis teningtovou: so. if there has been an3' thriliing episode in your life that I have not as yet nearo, x should be pleased to have you narrate it, and I can assure you tuat i snail be a most attentive listener. "I'm afraid vou're a great flatter er, Mr. Williamson, sue repueii. "However." she added, "I will com ply with your request, for a startling event recurs to my mind at tnis mo ment "Twenty years ago, my husband was a dealer in jewelry, and also in most articles of great value. He traveled almost incessantly, and stopped but a short time in eaeh city or town. I could not bear to be parted from him for months at a time, so I always accompanied him in his wanderings, and endured many hardships and dangers for the sake of always being with him. There were not many railroads in those days; they were 'like angels' visits few and far between.' "Late in the summer of 1852, we were in New Orleans; he had finish ed his business there, and was ready to leave. On making inquiries he found that there would be no vessel for Savannah, our next stopping place, till the end of the following month, so he decided to take the overland route. "Well, we got as far as Opelaka, Georgia, without meeting with any very scnou3 annoyance or danger. Opelaka, at that period, was little more than a village, inhabited by half-breed Indians, miserable treach erous rascals, and a few whites. Every two weeks a stage left Ope laka for Griffin, the terminus of the Railroad from Savannah. We got there in time for the stage, but, through the stupid obstinacy of my husband we were left behind in that miserable place. He had three trunks filled with valuable goods, and the stage driver wanted ten dol lars more than my husband had ever paid anybody else that is, for an equal distance for carrying them to Griflin. 'George, give him what he asks,' rather than stay in this wretched village for weeks. If we remain here, we will be murdered and robbed by those villainous looking Indians.' "'Annie,' he replied, 'I won t pay such exorbitant charges to that scoundrel, no, not it we have to stop in this place for a month by refusing to do so. "Well, as I said before, the stage left without us, for the driver :efus- cd to take the trunks for less tliau he demanded. "There was a squalid-looking ho tel tavern rather in the village, kept by a dirt', ruffianly-appearing half breed,, which my husband and I entered on the departure of the stage. "'Cau we get a team to take our trunks and ourselves to Griffin f asked nryhuaband of the host. " 'The roads are in very oaci con dition, and you couldn't get more than five miles from here this after noon, and you'd have to stop at a house where a man was murdered last week for two dollars. You'd better stop here to-night; I'll make you as comfortable as I can," he re plied. " 'Well, then, l guess we n stay here till to-morrow morning,' observ ed my husband. "The host'went to prepare a room for us, and as he left the apartment a white man stepped up to my husband and said: " 'Mister, you'd better not stay in this shebang to-night, for you'll sure ly get murdered if you do. There were five men killed and robbed in this ranch within the last two months. I'm a teamster, and I'll take you to Griffin if you want me to.' " 'A very pleasant prospect, in deed,' said George. 'If we stay here we re likely to have our throats cut, so he tells us; and, if we go on this afternoon, and stop at the old tavern over night, mine host says that the same delightful fate will await us there. Between the two evils choose the least; but confound the whole affair! I don't know which is the least My friend,' he added, turning to the teamster, 'reck on we'll remain here to-night Be ready to start early to morrow morn ing at daylight' 'If you and your wife isn t as dead as a door nail, you mean to say, mister,' said the teamster, with a grin, as he walked away. "'Good heayens, lieorgcr l cried, when safe within the apartment that we had been conducted to by the host; 'we'll be murdered, and only because you acted like an obstinate mule,' and then 1 burst into tears. " 'My dear, he replied, 'be a phi losopher, and make the best of our fehcitious situation. I here is one consolation that is, if our throats are cut we shall have the blessed privilege of dying in each other's arms. Think of that, my dear, and be no ten if to our to by to the the to ers. for wo very it cape I ried 'Are the in the door, and To the the his his ble, he he and ble At he then this he will they I and out are time the hn, has the happy.' " 'George,' 1 sobbed, 'how can you be so hartless as to joke when we are in such great danger of our lives? If vou d had any consideration for my comfort and my safety, you'd have given the stage driver what he asked. I shall nevei forgive you for acting so no, not as long as I live.' " 'Well, perhaps that won't be very long; so you'd better not treasure up any harsh feeling against me, for if you should happen to die suddenly, without having pardoned me, your soul wouldn't rest in peace.' "I made no reply, for I saw that he was very anxious, and was trying to cheer me up by making light of the situation. "About six. o'clock the host brought us some supper, which we partook of sparingly, for we were in humor for eating. At nine o'clock George ordered two milk punches, When the host had brought them, and deposited the tray on the table, and left the room, my husband cau tiously tasted and smelled the con tents of one of the glasses. " This punch contains drug3,' ho said; 'we have, indeed, got into a murderer's den.' "The windows.were both shutter- less, and our room was not more than feet from the ground. It was a lovely, clear, moonlight night, and we could see those treacherous half- breeds standing outside, gazing np into our apartment and looking as they but waited till we were asleep, when they would be only too ready assist the tavern-keeper in taking lives. " 'It's a slight consolation to know that you have your pistols with which defend us, if we are attacked by these scoundrels," said I. "Unluckily for us, as it happens, I placed them in my trunk yesterday mistake, and the trunks are down stairs. I should have had them brought no here, but I did not wish do so, as I thought it might cause tavern-keeper to think that we suspected he would rob us if he got opportunity. " 'Oh ! 1 cried, 'then we shall have stand still aud be killed like sheep when slaughtered by the butch What need you to have cared the man's suspicious as long as had something to defend our selves. Oh, George! you have acted rashly.' " 'My dear Annie, we vc got into a scrape, and now we must get out of as best we can. We must put our in luck, and hope we shall es bodily harm.' " 'Not in luck, George, bnt m uoa," solemnly replied. "Our conversation had been car on in whispers, for we were afraid of being overheard. About twelve o'clock the tavern-keeper knocked at our door and asked: you asleep, and is there any thing you wish to have brought to My husband answered in the negative. Three hours elapsed, wnen same question was repeated. George made no reply, but with a slender, though heavy stick of wood his up raised hands, stood ucar door, readj to attack the first person who entered. I lay, trem bling in an agony of fear, stretehed the bed. The suspense was awful, and I was almost crazed with terror. "My eyes were fastened on the and husband, who statue like.; stood beside it. The door had neither lock nor bolt, so anybody could enter the room easily. Sud denly 1 perceived it move slightly, by degrees it opened wide enough to permit a man to come in. my great horror I saw through aperture made by the opening oi door, the tavern keeper, and in right hand he clutched a bowie knife. He thrust in his head cau tiously, and as he did so, my bus band struck him a heavy blow with rude-weapon. The wretch with out giving vent to a cry or even a groan, fell to the floor like a dead weight "'You've killed him, George,' I cried, though hardly above a whis per. "'No, hes only stunned. Just hand me that cord lying on the ta and I'll pinion his arms so that won t be able to give us any trouble when ho regains his senses.' "I obeyed my husband's order, and quickly bound the villain's arms feet so that it would be impossi for him to move when he came to. the first sign of consciousness that showed, George gagged him, and carried him to a large closet placed him in it, and closed the door. " 'At daylight' said George, 'the teamster will be here, but few peo ple will be up and about and we be able to leave quietly. If fellow had had any accomplices would have brought them with he has no wife, so the people not miss him until long after are gone. If they knew how ve treatel him, xreu have the whole tribe at our heels, and they would make short work of killing us dividing the spoils, I fear. Once of this detestible place and we safe.' "Daylight at last came, though the seemed long before it did, and never before or since have I hailed first gleam of light in the eastern horizon with greater joy. The team ster soon made his appearance, ray hushand helped him to put his trunks on hi3 cart, and we were shortly driving rapidly toward Grif- which place we reached in two days, and without meeting with any other adventure. "So yon see, Mr. Williamson' she said, in conclusion, "my life thus far numbered at least one thrilling experience. I can afford to laugh at perils and fears of that terrible night but it is not likely that'I shall ever forget it or them as long as I live." What The Solid South Means. [From Yesterday's N. Y. Tribune.] Attorney General Taft is not only a Republican with liberal views, but a fearless, fair-minded man. And Attorney General Taft says that "A Solid South for the Democracy im plies fraud and intimidation in its worst form." Gen. Banks has been nomlna ted for Congress by the Republicans of the Fifth Massachusetts District The soldiers used to call Tilden's extract "fire in the rear coffee." It had all the aroma of a decayed sweet potato roasted. A Queer Marriage Stipulation. [From the Camden Herald.] Somo time in August last an aged man named John Humphrey died in Appietonj ale., aged about eighty three veirs. He was universally known aa very miserly man, and it was supposed he had more or less hard money secreted about the prerai ses of his homestead. Eight years ago he contracted with Samuel Rip ley to take his farm and provide a support for himself and wife, during their lives Mr. Ripley, feeling sat isfied that there must be money some where secreted, immediately after the death of the old gentlemen began a vigorous search, for the supposed treasures, and was liberally reward ed for the search by finding secrete" in an. old. desk two sacks filled with double eagles of gold, ($20 each), to the amount of $1,300 in each sack. There was also found iu an old sink, laid away in an unoccupied closet other parcels- filled with silver coins, many oft them-of ancient date, and mostly foreign com, among them many five-franc pieces (an old French coin) and also Mexican dol lare and Spanish coin. I learned from good authority that Mr. Humphrey denied himself and wife even the comforts of life in or der to gratify his miserly disposition to hoard np his earnings and savings. I also learned as related by Mr. Hum phrey, that he first saw his wife in a store trying to drive a very sharp trade with the merchant, and discov ering such a sharp, shrewd, business tact, that he said to himself, "That's the girl for me, and immediately be gan cultivating an intimacy with her that resulted iu a marriage union of their efforts to get and hoard their earnings, and, no doubt in her Jays of consciousness, she knew where these treasures wore secreted. It is said that, in their marriage contract, many stipulations were made and agreed to on both sides, one of which was, "never to boil meat that could be fried." I Can't Help It. That is what Harry Day always said when he was told of any of the bad habits: "I can t help it; " which really mean't "I don't wisli to help it, because we know well enougli that wo can every one of us "help" doingwrong if we try in the right way. Once Harry came upon an old story in a worn' soiled book which he routed out of a chest in the lumber closet and this story set him think ing, as it may perhaps some other young folks thinking why it is nec essary to resist what is bad in its earliest beginning. . .T 'l 1 ' I t.l t mit who had left the busy world for a cell in the desert, and was reputed to be learned and wise. "Many people used to visit the lonely man that they might receive his advice, and once a youth came to him who begged to stay with him for a while for his pupil. "The hermit consented, and the first clay he led his companion into a small wood near to their humble dwelling. Looking round, he point ed to a very young oak tree just shooting from the ground. "'Pull up that sapling from the root,' said ho to his pupil, who obey ed without any difficulty. They went on a little farther, and the old man pointed to another tree, but also a young one whose roots stuck deep er. This was not so easy to pull up as the first had been, but with sev eral efforts it was accomplished. "The third had grown quite tall and strong, so that the youth was a longtime before he could tear it up; but when his master pointed to a fourth, which was still larger and stronger, he found that, try as he might it was impassible to move it " 'Now, remember and take heed to what you have seen,' said the her mit "The bad habit3 and passions of men are just like those trec3 of the wood. When young and tender they may be easily overcome, but let them once gain firm root in your soul, and no human strength is sufficient to get rid of them. Watch over your heart, and do not wait until j'our faults and passions have grown strong before j'ou try to uproot them.'" That was the end of the story but, as I have said, I set Harry Day thinking, and when "I can't help it was rising "to his lips, he was ashamed to utter it So he set him self to the work of mastering his temper, his idleness and all that con science told him was amiss. Though this is work that can not be done within an hour or a day or even a year, it will be effected at last (per haps after many failures) by prayer and by perseverance; nay, it must be done unless we wish to become the servants and the slaves of sin. Carl Schcrz confirms the general report that the Republicans have been gaining ground in Ohio and In diana during the past few weeks. He was in West Virginia, last week, and said to a reporter of the Par- kersburg Journal: "If Hayes gains ground as rapidly within the next two weeks as he has during the past two weeks, he will carry every Northern State. The revolution has been thoroughly complete and rapid. I consider Ohio and Indiana sure for the Republicans in October, and there is not a State in the Union more certain to cast her Electoral vote for Hayes than New York. I can see nothing but certainty for defeat for Tilden." Hayes sure "Sambo, is your master a good farmer?' "Oh, yes, massa fustrate farmer he make3 two crops in one year." How is that, Sambo?' "Why, he sells all his hay in de fall and make money once; den in de spring he Bells de hides od ue cauie aas cue for want ob de hay, and makes money twice."-Florida Sun, I Can't Help It. BANKING.
