Alison has observed too that a a Joe in architecture when once established is generally permanent because the costliness of the Public edifices As a Ell As their great durability prevent their renewal until t Ney have acquired in the eyes of succeeding generations All the Sanction of Antiquity and have rooted themselves in the Public mind. This accounts for the Long continued uniformity of style among the ancient egyptians and other people of the East As Well As for our own habitual imitation of ancient standards. Why we should continue to enslave ourselves to the live orders of Vitruvius i cannot Well Sec. Art of the statuary there is a Cence Vabie limit but that of tiie Archi sect seems to admit a much wider Range and it i greater variety than can be circumscribed within five orders. All structures should be adapted to the climate and there is therefore Prima Facie evidence that the fitting style for Greece and Asia minor can scarcely be the proper one for England. A grecian Temple Many of whose ornaments Are Heathen symbols is not the Best Model for a Christian Church which is but a sole ism in Stone when thus Pagani Zed nor can i admit the Wisdom of our imitating an italian Villa with its open balconies and Shady colonnades unless we could at the same time import the italian climate. The five orders Are to architecture what the thirty nine articles Are to the Church they do not insure uniformity and if they did it would not be desirable because they arc not adapted to the present state of knowledge and the wants and feelings of the Community. In either instance this slavery of opinion must eventually yield to the glowing Freedom of thought. Is there any valid reason Why the doric a capital should be Peculiar to a pillar who. Height is precisely eight diameters the ionic Volute to one of nine and the corinthian foliage to one of ten custom has assigned these ornaments and proportions but one can imagine others which would l e equally or perhaps More agreeable to t be unprejudiced Eye.

The stems of the branches where they were Cut or suggested the capital tic Iron or other bandages at top and Bottom to prevent the splitting of the Wood were the origin of the fillets the Square tile which protected the.

But Why should a Stone pillar be made to imitate a tree by lessening it As it rises custom alone has reconciled us to an unmeaning deviation Wlinich throw Sall the inter to Lumizar spaces out of the perpendicular and presents us with a series of Long inverted Cones the most ungraceful of All forms.

Not Long after we began to catch glimpses of the Upland Prairies. These Are either Clear Prairies totally destitute of Trees or Oak openings which consist of Clear Prairie and scattered Trees. A Clear Prairie a Broad a varied expanse presents rather a monotonous appearance like the sea but surely the human Eye never rested on More Lovely landscapes than these Oak openings present. They answered my conceptions of lawns Parks and pleasure grounds in England they Are the Lavins Parks and pleasure grounds of nature Laid out and planted with inimitable Grace fresh As creation. In these charming Woodlands Are a number of Small lakes the most picturesque and delightful sheets imaginable. The Prairies in the summer Are covered with Flowers. I am an indifferent botanist but in a Short walk i gathered Twenty four species which i had not seen before. These Flowers and Woods and glittering lakes surpass All former Conception of Beauty. Each Flower Leaf and Blade of grass and Green Twig glistens with pendulous diamonds of Dew. The Sun pours his Light upon the water and streams throughout the sloping Glades. To a traveller unaccustomed to such scenes they arc arc pictures of a mimic Paradise. Sometimes they stretch away As far As the Eye can reach soft As Elysian Meadows then they swell and undulate voluptuous As the vav Irani Bili Ovi s of a Southern sea. In these Beautiful scenes we saw numerous blocks of wild turkeys and now and then a pro Rie Lien or a Deer bounding away through the Flowers.

The Royal society of antiquities at Copenhagen announces the Early publication of a highly interesting work in relation to the discovery of this country to be called quot anti qui tates America quot which will contain a curious collection of accounts in relation to Voya Ges of discovery to our continent As Early As the tenth Century by the scandinavians. The a prospectus of this great work says the new York Sun in which these remarkable statements Are Given is greatly enhanced by the great apparent probability amounting indeed almost to certainty that it was a knowledge of these facts that prompted the memorable expedition of Columbus himself. It is said to be a Well authenticated fact that this great navigator visited Iceland in the year 1477 and by conversing As he did in latin with the clerical functionaries of the country the editors of the quot antiquated America quot Are of opinion that he could not have failed to obtain from them some information respecting the voyages of their ancestors to this country a which to them were Well known.

The Dubuque Wisconsin visitor of june 27tli, in speaking of the flood of emigration Wlch is settling in that Quarter says quot among the numerous arrivals of emigrants we notice one in particular a company of a bout 50 persons from Philadelphia the gentlemen principally mechanics and All men of first rate character and two Small Partis from Ohio Farmers and mechanics men hide of the right stuff for pioneers. Indeed a Calm observer must be struck at contemplating the business of a town Only three years old. One will witness every where in Wisconsin a surprising augmentation of inhabitants and a corresponding Progress in wealth and improvement but particularly in Dubuque and des Moines counties. History Furnis les no example of such rapid Illinois. It appears that the land on which the principal part of Chicago is built was entered by a gentleman at the Danville land office before the land office at Chicago was opened for business although the Law establishing the office at the latter place was in Force at the time. The entry a i i Neville was considered illegal by the individual and under this in Crockett once in a quandary. Speaking of the great difficulty of always being on the right Side and the danger of non committal quot i never was quot said the colonel quot in a quandary but quot during my electioneering Campaign for Congress i strolled out in the Woods so much bewildered with politics that i forgot my Rifle. The first thing t lat took my fancy was the snarling of Young bears which proceeded from a hollow tree the Entrance being More than to Enty feet from the ground. I mounted the tree but soon found i could not reach the cubs Vith my hands so i slips in feet Foremost to Sec if i could draw them up with my toes while i Hung on my hands to the top of the Hole. While straining with All my might to reach them my hands slipped and Down i went about fifteen feet when 1 landed among the family of Young bears. I soon found i might As Well undertake to climb a greased lil erty pole As to get Back the tree being so Large and smooth. Now this was a real quandary. If i was to shout it would have been doubtful whether they would have heard me from the settlement and if they did tie Story told by my opponents would ruin my election they Avold not vote for Man that ventured into a place that he could not get out. While considering whether it was Best to Call for help or wait there till after the election i heard a kind of scratching and growling above me and Loo Long up 1 saw the old car coir no Tail Foremost upon me. Siy motto is quot go As soon As she came in my reach i seized her Tail with hand and with ii Peh Kufe in the other 1 commenced spurring her Forward.

A part of that Force is now stationed on the mail Road Between this place and Columbus for the Protection of mail but the contractors have not yet placed stages on that route. The disc Sarge of the greater part of the go Cripi Force has been or Decd and i have Dii cited the discharge of fourteen companies of infantry and eight mounted companies of the Alabama volunteers and militia. The greater part of the mounted Force now under general Patterson was raised in the Northern counties of Alabama and i propose to order them to move through the Creek and Cherokee country to their Homes and should sch. Wood require their services they will be in a situation to co operate with him before their discharge. The Tennessee brigade has reported and i have directed Gen.

"1 have never tasted any ardent spirits nor have i at any time during life been in the habit of drinking wine.

She has been twice to sea having completed two cruises in the Mediterranean a Mississippi it is impossible to say what effect would have resulted from the use of stimulating liquors at periods of great exposure and fatigue. I can Only say that 1 have done Well enough without novel contrivance for a bed. Chateaubriand relates the following incident during his travels in the Western states. One evening on entering an inn i was astonished at the sight of an immense bed constructed in a circular form round a Post each traveller came and took his place in this bed with his feet to the Post in the Centre and his head at the circumference of the Circle so that the sleepers a Cre arranged symmetrically like the spokes of a wheel or the Sticks of a fan. After some Hesic Ilion i took my place in this singular machine because i saw nobody in it.
