i Amongst ronmrksblo liublio ulocke,
.thero are two which atand foremost
'those of Lyons aud Strasaburg. Thoy
are well worth attention, partly on ac
count of thoir curious workiuanship,and
partly on account of richness of orna
monl and originality of design. In the
former, two horsemen, fully armed ca;i
api, encounter lu deadly combat, oa it
wore, and beat the bour upon ouch oth
er's armor. Then a door open, and an
inuige of tho Virgin, beai-iu in her
arms the child Jesus, stops out She In
turn Is followed by the magi, wltb ret
inue marching "ull lu good order;
presenting Ihctr gifts, heralded by
trunqiots, which continue to breathe
forlli from thoir brazen throat while the
prooeasieu Is lu movement. The scene
which tho Strasabiirg clock presonU Is
aa follows: At ooub hour, as the clock
goes round, thore la a cock which clapa
Its wings; again, in this, a door opens,
and an angel appears, who sulutes tbo
Virgin, thou the Holy Spirit in the form
of a dovo descends aud alights upon the
aliouldcr of the Virgin.
i About alxty-flve years ago tho East
India Company pcesontcd the then Em
peror of China with two time-pieces,
manufactured by Eugllah artists. They
were of tbe finest workmanship that was
ever executed. Thoy wero of similar
goitlgn, and so It Is only needful to de
scribe one of them. It was in tbe form
of a chariot, which was of sulld gold.
A Indy la eeated, In a languishing atti
tude, loaning her right baud on that
side of tho chariot In tho center of tiie
aame side is set the clock lUelf, wltb lta
faoo outwards, and whtch Is no lurgor
than a shilling. It strikes and repeats,
and, upon being wound up, goes for
eight days. A bird, which Is almost
completely msdo up ot diamonds 'and
rubles, rests upon tbe lady's fluer. At
striking tlmo It flutters Its wings for
several minutes. It la nomotliing leas
than the sixteenth part of an Inch from

lurao of tho works which animate
It In her left haud Uio laly bulds
a golden tubo which la littlo thicker
than a large pin, and upon tho top ol
which la Used a small round ornament
of the site of a Rlxponco. As long as the
clock. continues to go, this uriianienl
moves round with a regular purU'tual
motion. The lop. of Ibe ornament la
studded thickly with precious ttonoa. as
