THE CITY OF PALACES.
.Congressman Cox SlRht-fteclna; In the His

B. Cox, In N. Y. Express.
It Is Imposslblo to doscribo oven a fow
of the phases of this Russian lifo in a
fow hurried letters, or to mako a proper
roviow of tho scenes and places which
we havo had time to observe I might
havo mado a moro picturcsquo sketch of
tho military or dynastlo church, where
in lios buried Russia, or hor Czats. It
would bo a pleasure to recount moro In
dotall tho visit to tho hut of Fotor tho
Groat, who-e ho lived while planning
this city. Tho boat and chair, which
ho mado himself, attract our oyo, whilo
tho sacred picture under glass in tho cor
ner, set In precious stones nnd illumi
nated with candlos is considered so raro
nnd talismanio that It attracts crowds,
who kiss tho glass covering. It is a fa
mous picture of tho Saviour, nnd lovoly
in ita touching sadness. It has a witch
cry, for, bolng borne in front of tho ar
my, it incites to 'victory.
Our noxt drivo was to tho placo whoro
tho Into Emperor was killed. Thero is
beautiful shrino under an Oriontal
kiosk'liko tomplo over tho exact spot,
in front of which nre candlos burning
and devotcos bowing and crossing.
Thoro seemed to bo an unusually doop
solemnity horo; and oven tho guards
nnd mlnlstrants had n moro serious and
anxious expression. Wo wont to vari
ous other churches, all called "parish
churches," but splendid in domo of
groon or bluo, nnd rich in decorations,
golden docoratlons predominating, for
oven silver is gildod ovor. No images
aro allowod In tho Greek churohos, only
pictures. So it is said, but it is hard for
us to distinguish betweon them. Faces
of tho Saviour and Virgin appear iu
beautiful outllna and color, surroundod
by golden aureoles and by enamolod
and gemmed frames of raro handiwork.
Our last visit on Sunday to church was
that of "Our Lady, of Kazan."
Knzan is n town on tho Volga, and tho
oputation of its saint is such as to en
rich hor shrino abovo all others. The
