.That. Bingle; view , of tha Eternal , City,
from the tower of the Capitol, is one that. I
almost wish I had given up the first day to.
The entire of feome and its. inhabited su

made of oftcdoy to simply move from look
out to look-out In thai old tower, using the
glass for a few moments and then pausing;
for' reflection; 1 have half a mind thus to
spend . one of my three remaining days.
True, the Coliseum, will : seem vaster close
at hand, but from no point can it bo teen so
completely and clearly in its immensity and
its dilapidation combined, as from that. The
Turpcian Rock seems an absurd fable its
fatal leap the daily sport of infants but ip
all ardent cities the same glaring discrcp
iin?v between Rncient and modern altitudes
is prescnijd and specially, we hear, at Je

was built aro all distinguishable1, 'Visible

Puul (not the modern St. Peter's) was origi

quite probable: though I did not so readily
lubricate tho stories 1 was told in that base
inent to-day of Sts. Peter, Paul and Luke
having tenanted this basement, Paul having
lived and preached here for the first two
years of his residence in Rome; and when
they showed me the altar at which St. Paul
was wont to, minister, I stopped short and
didn't trv to believe any more. But this soil
is thickly sown with marvels and very pro
St. Peter's, or at least iu Dome, was in
sight through a greater part of the last elev
en or twelve miles of our journey to the
city; from most other directions it is doubt'
less visible at a much greater distance. I
have of course seen the immense structure
afar off, as well as glanced at it in passing
by night; but I am not yet prepared to coin
prehend lis vast proportions. I mean to visit
it last before leaving Rome, so as to carry
awnv as unclouded an impression of it as
Of tho three hundred and sixty-five
Churches of Rome, I have as yet visited but
four and may find time to see as many more
of the most noteworthy. They seem richer
Sculpture, Porphyry, Mosaic, Carving,
Tupestry.&c., than anything elsewhere can
ke; t,ut nol equnt in Architecture to the finest
Churches in Genoa, tho Cathedral .at Pisa
and I think not externally to Notre Dame at
Paris. Indeed, though large portions of the
present Rome aro very far from ruinous, and
some of iliem quite modern and fresh-look
ing, yet the general Aichitecttire of the city
is decidedly inferior to that of Genoa, and 1
should say even iq thai of Leghorn. In
making this comparison, I of course leave
out of the account St. Peter's and the
Churches of both the cities, and refer mainly
to private architecture, in which Rome is
not transcendentcertainly not in Italy.
The streets here aie rather wide for an
Italian city, but would be deemod intolera
b!y narrow in America
As to Sculpture and Painting, I am tempt.
ed 10 say that if mankind were compelled
to choose between the destruction of what
is in Rome or thai of all the rest in the world,
the former shall be saved at the expense ot
the latter. Adequate conception of the ex
lent lh0 variety, tho excellence of ihe works
of Art here heaped together is impossible.
If every house on Broadway were a gallery,
the whole six miles of them (counting both
sides of the street) might be filled from
Rome with Pictures, Statutes, &c. of decided
merit. ....
What little I have seen does not impress
me with (he superiority of Ancient over
Modern Art. Of course,' If you compare
ihe dozen best things produced in twenty
centuries against a like number chosen from
the productions of the last single century
you will show a superiority on the part ol
the former; but that decide nothing. The
Caphollne Ventrs is t , paragon, but there
no'eollejnitin of anciertirscu)ptur( 'which will
compare with the extensive gallery of heads

.Rorne has been-' grasping whi regard to
works of Art, and In some Instances1 unwise
ly so.' For tnsiarce. in a single pirtyaip gal
lery i visited to-day, there were not less than
twenty decidedly good pictures by Anibal
Caracci probably twice as many as there
are in all the world out of Italy.' That gal
lery would, scarcely miss half of ! these!
which might be fully replaced by as jmany
modern works of. equal merit, whereby the
gallery and Rome would lose nothing, while
the world outside would deeidedly gain.' "'If
Rome would but consider herself under a
sort of moral responsibility to impart as well
as receive, and would liberally dispose of, so
many of her master-pieces as would not at
all Impoverish her, buying in return such
couid be spared her from abroad, and
would thus enrich her collections by diver
sifying them, she would render the cause of
Art a signal service and earn the gratitude
of mankind, without the least prejudice to
her own permanent well-being. It is in her
power 10 constitute herself the center of an
International Art-Union really worthy of the
name to establish a World's Exhibition of
Fine Arts unequaled in character arid be
neficence. Is it too much to hope that she
will realize or surpass this conception?

have seen to-day, are at all events much

Slaves Liaebated. There has been for
some time before the courts of Richmond,
Va , what was known as the Ragland will
case, and the verdict of the jury, just made,
offers a singular commentary upon the re
peated declarations of Northern fanatics,
that the colored man cannot meet with jus
tice in the South. The Richmond Dispatch
''That the will liberated eighty Or ninety
negroes in the midst of one of .the largest
slaveholding communities in the world, and
devoted to their use the entire property of
the testator. It was contested with all the
energy which could be brought to bear
upon it. The trial was conducted with
the utmost circumspection; witnesses were
examined and cross-examined; the whole
testimony was reduced to writing, so thai the
jury could read it all or themselves, (aa we
learn that ' they did a great portion;) and
then ihe case was argued with all the ability
that able and ingenious counsel were capa
ble of exercising. After all, fully under
standing the merits of the case, a jury com
pqsed almost entirely of slaveholders i ve
ry man of them having strong sympathies,
at least, with slaveholders decided in favor
of the will." . .
Progress in tub 19th Century. The
State Journal says Parker Pillsbury, the no
torious abolitionist and come-outer in Mas

ately held a mock meeting on the Sabbath,
in Salem, and went through the ceremony
ol taking aeveral 'dogs into the churh, pro
tounding doctrinal questions to them, and
baptising them using the words I baptize

03-The character of young men of com
munity depends much on that of young
women. If the latter are cultivated, inielli
gent, accomplished, the young men will feel
the requirement that they themselves should
be upright and gentlemanly and refined; but
II their female friends are frivolous and
silly, the young men will be found dissipa
ted and worthless. Bur remember, always
thai a sister is the best guardian of a broth
er's integrity. She Is the surest Inculcaior
of faith in female purity and worth. As
daughter she is the true light of ihe home,
The pride of the father often centres on his
sons, but his affection is expended on his

Umbrellas. dt.l not a hundred years
since a veVv eccentric tentlemanl named
Jonas Hanway, having reiurried from his
travels In the East, appeared in h sweets
of London on a rainy day with a queer
'notion' from China, in the shape of what
is now called an umbrella. Being the first
ever Eeen in England, it attracted such curi
ous and indignant notice, that its owner was
surrounded by a furious English mob, and
pelted with mud and other missiles,1 for his
auduciiy in attempting id screen himself
from the rain, which all true born English
men from time immemorial had allowed to
beat on them without resistance, as the visi
tation of Providence I The incident made
noise, and in spite of ridicule, the 'notion'
began to lake wonderfully with the hitherto
bedrizzled people: and as it was found as
useful in protecting against ihe sun as the
rain, the name or umbrella a little shade
was given it. Poor Jonas' invention so un-
fiopular at first, and afterwards so universal
y udopted.morely shows what a disadvantage
11 is to be born a few years In advance of
the age. "'' ' I ,
