ofthe army of Italy. Within the-brief
K s"astof thirty days from the opening

defrmed the Austrians at Montenotte,
- il3kIclmo and Mondovi, ad compelled
thetn to evacuate Piedmont, and retire
to the oposite bank of the Adds. The
Adds Is a rapid and doe) river, ahd is
eraoaed at the town of Lodi by a wooden
bridge called the "Bridge of'Lodi." On
the left bank of this river the A ustrians,
under the command of Beaulieu, a vet.
eran of '76, halted and posted them.
belves In their strength to arrest the
progrs of the victorious Napoloon.
They planted thirty piece. )f artillery
upon the bridge, and statinied 12,000
infantry and 4,000 cava ry upon the
groutnd to act iii etfectivo co-operation.
ith such formidable means orderence,
nothing but instant death appeared to
await any demonstratiom on the part or
-,the French to force the passage or the
bridge. Napoleon reached Lodi in the
afterhoon of the 10th of May, 1796, at.
tended by his best generals and choicest
troops,. and without hesitation imme.
diately'resolved to assail the A ustilan
position.. A few moments antecedent
he delivered the following laconic
addres to his soldiers: "Frenchmen!
hereia starvation, there is the enemy
beyond him plenty, March!" *IIis
cavalry we're ordered to cross at a place
where the Adda was said to be fordable,
and fall upon the Austrian flank, mean.
while Bonrparte, at the hend of 3,000
chosen grenadiers under the shelter of
the walls or the town, waited, until the
appearance or the cavalry, who had
crossed the ford, had disquieted the
. Austrian flank; at this critical moment
a word of command from Bonaparte
brought the *'nadiers upon the bridge;
they rushed' 'ard with loud shouts of
Vice la Republique, but their appearance
was the signal for thq opening of the
Austrian artillery upon their ranks.
The vollies which issued from these
fiekiceces were most terrific. At one
time, the French grenadiers, unable to
resist the dreadful storm, appeared for
an instant to hesitate, but Lannes,
- onaparte and Berthier hurried to the
head of the column, and by their
presence, gallantly renewed 'the re.
,solution of the soldiers, and carried the
bridge. The artillerymen were quickly
bayonetted and the Austrian army
put to flight, losing in their retreat
'upwards of twenty guns, and a thousand
iprisoners, and perhaps two thousand
Ipore wounded and slain. It has been

4 ~ length, .d built entirely of oak, and it
* supp6rted by forty-two sets of iressels.
The railing wvhich flanks its sides is
-ather low, being only two rails high
The bridge has no curve or arch, and
is ievel enough for the passage of c
railroad. With the exception of the
middie portion of it, which was destroyed
in the Italian revolution of 1848, 'the
brigdo remains in its original conrlition,
entire. it is let by contract to Signor
Guiseppe Pogliani, who pays sixteen
hundred dollars per annum for it, and~
he collects from every pedestrian onn
cent, and from every carriage or otheri
.vehicle sixteen cents, toil.
The bridge of Lodi is well regulated
and gravelled, and forms a very pleasni
promenade. On holidays it constitutes
the favorite resort of the people.
The country along the banks of thme
iver is very beautiful, and the air is
walways moved by fresh wvinds.
The Adda is a very swvift river,
and runs with a strong current; after
a rain storm it swells and become-g
quite deep; on such occasions
its depth would average twventy feet.
A large stone statue of "Saint Giovanni
Nepomices now stand., upon the Lodi
aide of the bridge. This saint was, and
is still, the protector of the river Adda.
On the (lay of the battle thme cannonade
was so furious that the saint could not
protect even his own statue from
destrucotior. It wvas knocked down,
had its heel knocked off one arm badly
fractured, both legs broken, besides
sustaining several severe coat usions on
.ite fage. When the conflict was over
aomie prous persons collected the limbs,
wilred them to the body, and restored
the tatue to its old place.
~ .l.~on e opposite bank of the bridge,
teAustrians were engaged,

Yere stand five or six small low stone
houses an old stone tower in the middle,
- with a tall lightning rod rising ab~ove

The merry,'merry sleigh bells, how th
joyously they jingle, through wood and til
delli-How much quicker beatathe heart of
of the maiden, as she listens to the dp. in
broathing sound! There is a romance i
and entlsiasm about a sleigh ride in m
the country, that pertains to no other hi
species of locomotion. When you w
have a pair of spirited horses, a neat el
little sleigh, a warm Beafl'to robe, and ot

there is poetry in the bright stars, that
sparkle with a lustre that almost rivals of
the light that beams from the eyes of to
the little angel at your side; there is p
love in her heart, and yours, and where d
there is music, poetry, and love, there im
must be happiness. Who could resist h
the ineVtable impulse to make lovo to u
a rosy lipped, bright eyed, huerry. v
maiden, under such soul.subduing in. if
fluences? The most unsusceptible of fl
human hearts would be unatle to resist c
th inelting influence of the tender fi
passion under such trying circumnstan v
ces. Old bachelors that have for
many years remorselessly withstood the a
golden arrows of Cupid, aiied at them
through bright eyes, have finally during
a sleigh ride, "surrendered at discretion,'
acknowledged the supremacy of woman,
and become useful membersofsociety. t
Bit I have a story to tell, though t
a brief one. In the "Old Key Stone t
State,' they have capacious sleighs, &
every thing there being designed after a
a broad brimmed Quaker model, some.
what modified perhaps, by Dutch ideas
of taste and comfort. It so happened 8
that a demure little Quakeress, who 9
concealed in her meek blue eyes, p
a world of fun and mischief, had two e
ardent lo-ers, uponi neither of whom
she had consented to bestov her hand ,
and heart. A sle'ighing party was S
projected in the village, Und the two
rivals contrived to secure their seats,
one on each side of tihe coqtettish litle
Quakeress, their object being no doubt I
"to prevent the winds of leaven from
visiting her cheek too roughly.'
This lady was provided with a most n
capacious muff, 'whereby hangs a tale.' C
Confidential conversation must of course t
have been rather limited uder the cir f
cumstnnces, and it occurred to one of r
the rivals, (who by the way, was a firm
believer in magnetism anI charming,
especially where the little Quaker
beauty was concerned) that if he could
contrive to put himself in 'rapport, or t
'spiritual' communication with his fair
friend, by intro4ph his hand ! ho r

veloped the delicate digitals of the
Quakeress it trembled as if under the
ffects or galvanism. There was at
first some preliminary toying and
scarcely perceptile approaches, then
an almost indistinguishable pressure,
and fimnally a tremendous squeeze!
The first kiss oflove, lhas tired the heart
and hand of rmany a poet.lover wpith
rapturous enthusiasm; but that first.
wvarm thrilling pressure of two harnds
which have met for the first time in
love's embirace, seems to complete the
magnetic circle, and to formn a tele.
graphic connelction, which t ransmnits
from heart to hea rt the lightning of
love! The perfe~ct b'eaiitude of our
hero, wve shall not attempt io describe,

was growing in the tips of his fingers,

brie . A las! that knowledge shoul'd
e'er bring sorrow,. Our hero proved
the I ruth of that oit-q uoedl linme,
"Where ignorance ise bti.., 'ie fully to be wise."
The littlhe Quakeress put a suddein
extinlguishier upon ithe new b~orn horpes of
our hero, by sayinig, while her soft
blue eyes were spairkiing with fire and
mischief, 'friend s, if you havye sq ueezed
each oilier's handes long emioiigh, I will
now troule you for the use of my muff!'
The ludicrous truth at once flsshmed

1M'r. A. J. Davis, in his work enti
ed "The Philosophy of Spiritual In.
3rcourse," thus lays open the mys.
-ry which has heretofore enveloped
)me of the "spirits" in Rochester
"I now proceed, to explain how
pirits can move a table or other or
anic substances : A spirit, without
ossessing any of the grossness of the
arthly form, is yet organized in its
rinciples and functions precisely as
re are in this life ; and when it, a
pirit, desires to move a table, (by
ray of manifesting its nearness,) it
oncentrates its own magnetic and
owerrul elements so as to take hold,
s it were, of the magnetism of the
tmosphere. In like manner this at
mospherical magnetism takes hold of
lid electricity of the air, and the lat
er is then concentrated upon the ar
icle whilh it is the spirit's design to
move. Atmospherie magnetism and
lectricity are, therefore, the nerves
nd muscle which spirits employ
rhen manifesting their presence to
lie material senses o&' believing, as
rell as skeptical individuals. Hence
