of ob- and neglect for more than seventy But soon after the return of the pontifical court at Rome an event which had been so earnestly ed for by the Petrarch and which finally took place in 1376 Vatican was put into a state of repair again enlarged and ft was thenceforward considered as the regular palace and residence of the who one after tbe other added fresh to it and gradually enriched it with an- statutes pictures and until it be- came the richest repository in tbe world Its library was commenced fourteen hundred years ago It contains among which are some by Pliny St Thomas St Charles Borromeo and Syriac Arabian and nian Bibles Tbe whole of tbe immense composing the Vatican are filled with statutes found beneath the of ancient Rome with paintings by the masters and with curious and antiquities of almost every description Whan it is that there have been exhumed more than from the ruined temples and palaces of Rome tbe reader can form some idea of the riches of the Vatican The

Belfast April 19 1849 Last week I visited the famous Giant's way It is a singular freak of nature and IB the produce of volcanic action The rocky coast that yon walk over is a sort of irregular pavement that appears to be composed of blocks stone shaped like the cells of an the of the column being up six sided many pentagons seven aided or some eight and occasionally nine and n some instances three or four sides The usual diameter of these blocks is from to een inches Each block or pillar runs down ad for aught I know and all of them arc in composed of seperate pieces about one oof high usually When one of these sections of a pillar is taken off it always leaves the next one convex or bottom part of the piece aken off being the converse or the top of the one eft ai they fit together exactly The top of each is more usually convex and the bottom con- cave Whatever size or shape these pillars are always fit to those around them so that for many acres it ie a vast field of mosaic work and the pieces are 10 closely fitted hat not a drop of water run down between the columns The tops of some of these pillars are much er than others and in one or two instances form banks or nearly forty feet high like large hewn posts standing up so thick as to form a wall In one place they form distinct and seperate columns and the name of the chimneys Some parts of the banks along at place are 320 feet high brt not Parts of these or columns of the causeway lave been taken down and carried off to put up in museums which can be very readily done The name of this work of nature probably came from tbe appearance of it being a gigantic effort to build a stone pavement or causeway from iere to the Scottish coast but 1 suppose the old fellow that laid out the work got tired or hard up for the pewter anil gave up tho job At least is my opinion anil being something of a presume I am right The gian builder has long packed up his traps uid retired to Fingall's which lies ive miles due north from this From of that 1 should presume that to be a similar at about the same time The columnar appearance of the and gal's Cave extends clear into the sea beyond the reach of mortal
