Logansport Weekly Journal (Newspaper) - November 24, 1883, Logansport, Indiana Weekly Journ. Vol. A Logansport Indiana saturday november 1883.-12 pages. No. 47. European Correro Poydence. The trip Doorn the Rhine has been Quot written up Quot ten thousand times and yet never overwritten. It is Quot a thing of Beauty and a Joy yens ago a Beautiful desc i Tion of to lip Little journey appeared in the journal under the signature of a Quot school girl Quot to the act Urey of which i now and Here Bear witness. One of the things Liat struck uie As an Especial feature of Thi incomparable scenery is its cheerful human element. On each Side of the Beautiful River is of e of those thoroughly by tilt european railways from which every be w minutes even amid the solitudes of the drachenfels we heard the pleasant tune of a train of car. The River ton is alive with All Roris of Craft and some of them of a kind i never saw before. All the freight boats have in their Center two i Normous paddies t at look like wooden wings while Many of the propellers have their motive Power priced near the prow instead of the customary location in the Stern or at the sides. From Mayence to Cologne is say one Hundred and Twenty Milts and of this at least for one Hundred the Rhine is or docked with sloping Stone Walls so As to prevent the River from wasting its sides. Thus is avoided those ugly Bauks that so much Dis Ngure the Ohio the Mississippi and All our Western Rivers. The Rhine Well deserves the term Quot Calm and in this it represents the serenity of the German temperament. Hardly a Ripple disturbs its Placid bosom on which for a Hundred Miles like a vast Mirror May be seen reflected the Trees and Beautiful Hills that line its Banks. Every Hill or Mountain is terraced and covered with those vineyards from which comes so much Quot bottled the most famous wines in the world Are manuf acquired upon these Hills. The Quot Johann Esberger Quot is Only forty acres in extent and its Vintage is As costly As so Many bottles of dissolved Only Kings can afford to drink it. Of All the Beautiful places that we passed to Day Bingen impressed me most. Perhaps it was because of mrs. Norton s exquisite lines the refi Aiu of which is Quot Bingen Calm Bingo non the it this gifted lady never a produced any other poem than this she is Safe enough in her solitary jewel. The Rhine enjoys a feature that is common to no other River in the world. It is both castellated and Villard. The mountains Are covered with the ruins of the old robber castles whose Gannt and hungry windows look out with eager eyes upon the hat Gay River below Happy in bearing upon its Tran Juil bosom and its Vilia covered Banks so Mach glad life while they must fill their Emty ferrets with ghostly Meiji Oriel. Yet Here dwelt the Peerless Beauty Brave Knight Roland wooed and i on. But a a a is forced after shedding his blood at the holy sep Ulcher upon his Retura to daily witness the fair form of his beloved la tie Bride of the Church As she passed to her sorrowful devotions from the Convent to the Little Chapel of the Klester. At Gigli fall. Legend says that the toll of the Bell which announced that the Virgin had transferred her from the Church militant triumphant can still be heard. Here too. Are the rocks of the Loreley. Here dwelt the false Syren that Sang xhosa fatal songs that lured sailors and fishermen to their deaths. Here Are the seven Sisters. Tradition says that these seven fatal rocks were once seven fair Maidens when the Lorel Ujj lured across the Waves and then turned them into Stone and Sank them in the Channel. And sure enough upon one of these Sisters there is the remains of an unfortunate vessel that a few year was wrecked in the darkness of the nig iii. As i passed further up the River i saw the imaginary scene of that Beautiful Ballad commencing with the lines a take. Of Ixia Nian thrice thy foe. The drachenfels Are worthy of the honoured legends that Cluster around their aged Heads and the grim old fortress of Ehre Breitenstein which inspired one of the great German poet Goethe e beet works what can i say if except that my eyes Are More sacred to me than Ever now that they have looked non their frowning and a stressed Heights but if the Rhine is Rich in its past it is equally Rich in its present. It is marvelous How Many Happy and Beao Tinl villages Nestle upon its Banks. For Over one Hundred Miles there is a constant succession of Beautiful towns peeping out from among the Groves and vines Homes where the same old comedy and tragedy we Call life that made those grim Ola castles sacred is still being played either in laughter or tears. As Good poetry is every Day being lived in these Homes As was Ever put upon paper. For the great mystery we Call life is As fresh and deep and Beautiful or sorrowful As it was upon the morning when the stars first Sang together. All that has Ever been drawn from the infinite that everywhere surrounds us is As 2g to what remains in its exhaust less 1. As Good poetry remains to be written As Good songs to be Sung As has Ever yet been written or Sung. The fountains of eloquence have hardly been unsealed. Better books and better Art remains in the future than the past has produced. And this it is that constitutes Quot the Promise and Potency of the human but let us return to Germany. The traditional German is named Hans. Carri nature represents him tonsil of a Many puffy and wheezy sitting in his shirt sleeves guzzling Beer and smoking a pipe a Yard Long. If there is such germans it is hard work to find Vliem in Germany. As a class the germans Are exceedingly Well disposed and mannered and the most intelligent people i have yet seen. Of course those that i have met have been mainly the travellers and those who frequent cars hotels and ci1 ies. As a nation take them All to rough they Are every Way ahead of the English. Their hotels Are admirable and so Are their boats railroads farms and houses. The germans Are belter Cooks than the English Ever dry med of beg. I was six Well in England and never got a b t of meat that was tit to eat a in fact went hungry All the time. At the German hotels we get the most delicious of Beefsteak wire tobacco and Beer i d at i rices that Are amazingly cheap fifty cents will buy a bottle of wine that in the United states costs $2.00 two cents a Glass for the very Best Beer and three cents a ten cent Cigar. How these germans can manage to import tobacco from tiie United states and give a better Cigar for one third or one fourth the Money that we do in the United states is a mystery that i can t explain. Yet they do. Clothing is also very cheap about one to Ira of what it is in the United states. Yet Germany is working under a High protective Tariff end with entire Success. Another German custom has been the subject of a great Deal of ridicule and that is their habit of sleeping under instead of upon Feather Beds. The american is accustomed to put his Goose extract underneath and his covers above. But i pm testify from i personal experience to the comport these Chilly nights of imitating the habits of the Goose and putting the feathers on top. Every bed on the Rhine is furnished with one or More of these Feather coverlets and every bedroom with an earthen stove. Your True Teuton is nothing unless warm. Another German habit that greatly interests me is the use of dogs As motive Power. Seeing so much muscle going to waste the Thrifty people of the Rhine harness up their canines and set them to drawing their carts. The practice is Universal and the dogs draw like steers. The effect of this habit upon the jogs is very beneficial. Early accustomed to habits of Industry and sobriety to earn their bread by the sweat of their brows the manners of the German dogs Are marked by Gravity and even solemnity. Vith them life is no Holiday affair As it is with their american cousins but As Longfellow same a real and Eirnest even in the presence of femininity their is no Harum scary mess such As v. E see on the american Side of the Atlantic but entire propriety Quot a subdued and reflective conduct Quot in the dogs i so to speak that is credible to the German civil service. I now see where the term Quot dog s life Quot comes from. All this time i have been keeping away from the great wonder of colognes its grand and solemn Cathedral which raises its lofty Spires As it in disdain upon the dirty City at its feet. I must leave the task of describing this glorious Minster to pens of greater cunning than mine. When you can Tell me How to make a Man born Blind understand with his ears How looks or to put in words the Crim. of Sunset or make a Man born a. Of comprehend the solemn cadences of the requiem of Mozart Yon May successfully attempt to paint in words these glorious White shafts soaring five Hundred feet into the sky or the Beauty of these Interior Arches lit up with a thousand images of saints and Angels that come floating through these gorgeous stained Glass windows non the Billows of music that Issue from the throats of the monster organs. I know of but one Way to even get a glimpse of this Minster Short of crossing the Atlantic and that is to go to new York City and spend a Day in the Cathedral non fifth Avenne a very creditable specimen of Cathedral architecture and then multiply it by ten or even one Hundred. The new York Cathedral was ten or perhaps fifteen years in building. This Cathedral was begun in 1248 and completed in 1880. One portion of it is As fresh As yesterday another portion is Green with the mosses of six centuries. All these great buildings have one drawback. They Are so Long in building and so old that some part is always being restored and invariably there Are several ugly scaffolds swung against the Walls that Imp air their effect. As often As not there is As Here at Cologne an ugly Stone Yard with its squally buildings at tiie foot of the great Structure. I believe it is conceded that Cologne Cathedral is the grandest gothic building in the world. From foundation to the Cross upon the spire it is Over 500 feet the greatest height yet attained by any building in Europe. Even without its Cathedral Cologne would Well repay a visit on account of its Industrial Prosperity. We brag a great Deal in the United states about oar Bridges a that at st. Louis and also that at Louisville has reaped a world of Praise and very properly so. Bat the Rhine has a half dozen Bridges As massive As either of them. In fact it was a German Engineer Roebling that designed and superintend ded the great new York and Brooklyn Bridge. It was part of my plan to have proceeded from this place to berlins the political Center of Germany and to have spent several weeks there. But the death of my brother and business connected with his estate Calls me Home. I must leave Germany an unexplored Region. I had i Ped to profit largely by a careful study of her institutions. Germany is to Day the t Ivy and fear of every nation in Europe. Her wonderful Progress under Bismarck shows what a great nation can accomplish when directed by a great brain. If Germany does not enjoy the commercial supremacy of England she possesses in the Long run what is of far greater value an educated people and the ability to feed and clothe herself out of her own Home resources. Natur Illy we look up to England of All the nations in Europe As she Speaks the same language and we Are the children of her loins. But England has several sources of National weakness that in the Long run will make themselves Felt. One is the degraded civilization of her Labouring classes who Are living by the million at starvation rates and who have no interest in her soil or special interest in her institutions. She is the Only country in Europe that turns her wheat Fields into Deer Parks and who esteems a splendid aristocracy of More value than an intelligent self respecting democracy. The Staple of the English newspaper consists in the movements of my lord this or my lady that. One would never suspect that England had Over thirty million working people except from the police and criminal reports. The brutality of their crimes there made Public tells the sad Story of their condition. That i might the better compare the working people of Germany with those of eng land and Italy. I have now spent several evenings in the Beer saloons. Ihssen places Are universally patronized by the poorer classes of both sexes. While the great National beverage is consumed in vast quantities yet it is almost always to the accompaniment of music and sociability. While these assemblies cannot be edged refined neither can they be called boisterous or disorderly. There Are no drunkards ail i Page that alcoholic drinks Are but Littie used. I have seen More degradation and brutality in England in a Day than during my whole stay in France Italy or Germany. All the nations of Europe under one weakness Over Popula Tion. Belgium and Holland combined j have about two thirds the area of the state of Indiana and 10,000,000 people. It cannot be otherwise than Tiit there should be a vast number of poor for the soil cannot produce enough to go around. The More i have seen of Earomi e the clearer Are my convictions that we of the United states must work out our social and political problems in our own Way and without any Especial heed to Quot old world precedents. Each nation s social financial and political system is largely a matter of local growth and depends upon local conditions. The English practice of having no paper Money under a Bill of $25 is Well enough for England but it would 2ot work at All in the United states. English free Trade is exactly the system called for by England s Lack of land and her Over population. But it does not follow because a Success in England it would be a Success in the United states. The German collegiate system is every Way Superior to ours yet ours is better for us than the German system would be. And so on to the end of the chapter. It would be a sad Day for the great Republic if she Ever allows her Tariff or her policy of any kind to be made for her on this Side of the Atlantic where conditions and traditions and interests prevail Una Merican and undemocratic. And there is no danger that she Ever will. We Are capable of taking care of ourselves in our own Way and without any occasion to go abroad for advice. _ d. P. B. My last to you was written at Naples fresh from the smoke of be sovins and the stench of ischia. Since the Date of that letter Outrite Nerancy has led us through Many places of great interest. First we returned to Rome where another sojourn enabled us to increase our acquaintance ship with that capital of modern Italy. We again visited that Prince of churches st. Peters and while there head some of the finest singing it has Ever been my lot to hear. We went Down into the crypt and viewed the coins that still holds the Bones of that apostle that Jesus loved the Best and from there visited the museum of sculpture in the Vatican from whose windows we looked Down into the delightful gardens of Bis holiness the Pope and most probably saw him in one part of them surrounded with his attendants. We have so located the streets and roads of ancient e that a fresh perusal of its history prove doubly interesting m Rome we went to Pisa and there its Cathedral built in 1156. With its Tifal Campane better known As the iding this Tower was first perfectly vertical but owing to the no of a portion of its foundation it is thirteen feet out of the perpendicular often impresses the visitor with a g that it is just about to fall. Its t is 189 feet and the care bestowed it has been great. The Campo Santo rial ground adjoining the Cathedral ins fifty three ship loads of Earth re hither from it. Calvary in order its dead might repose in holy ground was done by the archbishop of after the Loes of the holy land. The 1-Yard is surrounded by an immense Bizil ung begun in 1278, by Giovanni i Sal in the gothic tuscan style and it co ii ins Many Fine paintings and Beauty of sculpture As Well As Many in Tei iii relics of ancient history from a Gnu variety of countries. After a Delight in Pisa we went to Genoa the Rit a f Venice in the palmy Days of her re lican Power. Genoa still retains evidences of her former greatness be palaces of her merchant princes Illy the equal of those of Venice. We conducted Over one of them the of who quoth i shall always remember oors such Walls such furniture apartments Are beyond description As Fine a sea View As i Ever had was from the Heights of Genoa. The e of a summer s Day was spread e Bright surface of the med Terra Tad the shimmer of the quiet sea led outward and Onward like a gaze dreamy Borders of eternity. Genoa Harbor of the first class capable of shelter to hundreds of vessels and chief commercial City of Italy. Here government ship Yards and also in Ace is situated the Headquarters of the italian corps d armes. The me Monument erected to Columbus has been immortalized by Mark was a source of much interest and the Campo Santo. This delightful Knust be visited to be at All under a description of it must be passed want of space. Hours ride throw it re the Fine Valley a to brought us to Turin a City in ointments More american tha i any we have visited. The apennines with their lofty peaks had now disappeared and in their Stead we had the Borderland of the Green Alpine mountains again. These two ranges of mountains Are separated by the Broad Basin of the River to fully fifty Miles wide and it is astonishing what a difference Marks their formation. The Alps Are Evergreen even to the very top. The apennines Are White covered in places with Green foliage but always displaying an abundant White Back ground. The apennines Are not Beautiful and it is with Relief one turns to the contemplation of the Green Alpine scenery. Here Are no evidences of volcanic action which shows itself everywhere in the former Range but verdure and Content Are supreme upon its swelling lauds. Turin has been the focus of the National struggles for italian Unity and is a flourishing and most Beautiful City. Hannibal almost destroyed it b. C. 218, and All through the dark Ages of european history it experienced Many Vicissitudes of Fortune. Turin is conspicuous Ameng the cities of Italy for the regularity of its formation its Long Broad straight streets wide Squires and numerous gardens. We reached France through the mount Cenis Tunnel and were three quarters of an hour in passing it. The Tunnel is seven and a half Miles in length. The air in it is Peculiar to the smell Bat is said to be not unhealthy. The sooth Entrance is 4163 feet above the sea level and the North 3802. The Boring machines with which it was excavated were worked with compressed air and fully 3000 workmen were required in its construction. The Tunnel is Twenty six feet wide and Nineteen feet High and of the blackness and sense of burial that one experiences when he plunges into its subterranean Depths. We stopped one Day at Chambery a quaint old French town in the midst of the wine growing Region and another Day at Digon for rest from our travel. Then once More we stepped aside from the train to visit Fantai Blean. With its Beautiful Palace of Louis the fourteenth and of Nepoleon the first. The apartments Are supremely grand and Are As fresh and Bright As when the prisoner of st. Helena left them. I stood in the place where he took leave of his old guard who had fought for him so Long and so bravely and almost fancied i heard an Echo of their sobs in the huge Palace court. Here Are to be seen the apartments of Maril Antoinette. Her mirrors and her own paintings brought from the Rianon at Versailles Are As fresh As when she used them. We went and sat Down in the Chapel of the Trinity where Louis the fifteenth was married and where the due. D Orleans and Nepoleon the third were baptised a then on to the salons of Madam further that while Paris abounds in a Mol Tiande of Beautiful things she likewise possesses Many evil features. However i am not fault finding so i pass them Over. It would certainly look better to see the lords Quot Day respected in this great City and it would ease the heart of a tender Man to see les hard usage Anu torture applied to poor horses. These j working and faithful animals drag out a de Maintenon full of Beautiful tapestry and Fine paintings and from Here to the apartments of Francis the first and of Louis the thirteenth. The grounds and gardens of the Palace of Are beyond my Power of description. They Are like an earthly Paradise never to be forgotten. But Fine As they were we had to leave them and hurry on to Paris where As in London we constantly met vast crowds hurrying on Short and painful existence Here. Some Ward through the streets. The ceaseless i times i think great punishment is vet in Rush of humanity made us glad to leave i store for Paris on account of her wicked London. Now we met it on reaching Ness. But the Lime came to say Good be Paris in fully As unpleasant a form. Even to Paris so one Rainy afternoon we As London is the moneyed capital of left it for London where we now Arf. It the world so on the other hand is Paris pleasant to get Back among the eng-th3 Center from which All science and Art Lih Spei King people and though i have in fashion Springs. During the reign of had no trouble with the French still after the Empress Eugenie this was eminently j it idiot one own language. The therase but it is to be observed that within weather has been delightful and we Are the last few years especially since the of visiting a number of places we did establishment of the Republic in France not go to see when herein the Early sum Paris is fast losing her proud title of the Mer. We re Ifred Here just in time to miss Queen City of fashion. Other rivals Are seeing a genuine London fog of the first springing up and prominently among order and we Are much disappointed. It them May be mentioned new York. The As a Black fog. Busine a was totally lbs time is not far Distant when All models Pended and people became lost within five and styles will be originated in our own j Hundred Yards of their Honses. So intense chief City who will in turn Send them is the darkness that it is Quot possible to run abroad in the same manner As she a against any object before being aware of been receiving them these Many years. It proximity if course All the Hou already the americans in Europe Are noted j and Street lamps Are lighted but the Glare for their Good taste and judgment in of the lamp will Only penetrate the fog a dress. And Over Here it is universally feet while it lasts which is sometimes acknowledged that american ladies Are one or two Days everything is at a stand the most tastefully and beautifully dressed Stih and the discomfort in every w in is set of women in the world. How com j great. The Damp air is filled with nauseous Only does one hear it stated in London doors that Burn the nostrils and parch tha Quot of you americans dress with such Charm i Throat. Ing Good judgment really we quite envy i this will be my last letter. Indeed it will and All this is a fact. We see it our i not have reached you More than a week selves and we cannot deny it. The tide of when we too shall have reached logans port Empire in All things it matters not what e shall leave London in about eight Days is surely Westward. I shall never forget and shall turn our faces homeward. The the delightful Day we spent at the Palace 1 season is Fine and we Hope for warm weather of Versailles. Its Parks and Woods and for our Ocean trip roads and walks and Flower gardens must i London. October 2c. La m. H. . One out of pocket. Alien the legislature was brought to this City last Winter to examine into the advisability of locating one of the insane asylums at this place about was col be seen they cannot be described. Louis the fourteenth spent �250,000,000 in their Beauty cation. Yes two Hundred and fifty millions of dollars and now we see All the Fine results As Well As in his Day. The eyes Bec ome overwhelmed and the senses Over Pijie with All the beauties that arise a a a 1. 1 elected to defray the expenses of the vis aed it at times is actually a Relief to close. T in Vitora. The committee in charge in order to meet All Bills found it necessary to Advance $100, which amount has never been repaid. The question of making Good this amount to the members of this committee was discussed at some Len iii by the Council last night and Tanaily drop per. It hardly seems right that the gentleman who worked Long and t it Geti Cally to secure Logansport one of the state institutions should be forced to i ear a Good p vat of the i expenses incurred bringing a Tsoui the desired result. The taxpayers of the City would have Ento it cd to act of the Council allowing gentlemen Uliey j d for no object but for the ii Frost of Tylij their Lifbor was not in vain at d now the fact that they Are com Pel Lee to stand individually for it its contracted in the in Terest of Logansport is a poor Commeau tary upon the pulic spirit and Enterprise i of the City. It ii is always been claimed i that the i siness men of this place Are Lai King in Enterprise that they have stood quietly by and permitted manufacturing interests to go elsewhere when the exhibition of a Tittio Public spirit would have sc0"rcwl the same to this City. This is to a certain extent True iid it will be found that if the City is not willing to Back up the Tomb of Napoleon first. It is Imossi i them and shut All out for a season of rest. In the Carriage House is the Carriage that Napoleon used at Waterloo and Many others in guilt and Gold belonging to an extended line of Kings and there Only use is for a curious Public to gaze upon Nowa i d is. In the Rianon is the apartment and the bed from which Marieantoi Nette was dragged to trial and to death. In the grand Rianon the apartments of Madame Maintenon Are fall of Here is Rich and Bright and Beautiful. La one of the Large Chambers of this Palace.

The put a i ians often a Peak of this and Call her a old lady i it was on one of the inept of morn Wiigs that a get Sot out through tiie Rue de Riv ii. That of Stre to. And made our any into the place de la concorde and th3n to the a Oloaine pc i a ii a spot now made memorable As the place where the communists so stubbornly resisted the a National forces and there took a cab to ble but to Admire this great Man and then to think of his lonely death on the Barren Island of st. Helena so far from his own people. Sympathy will be aroused and when the Eye meets on the magnificent Tomb that has been raised to his memory the last will of the emperor that Quot i desire my ashes yet to repose on the Banks of the Seine amongst the French people whom i love so Well Quot it is almost possible to drop a tear before his Harial place. It is but a step to the Church of the invalids where so Many of the old War beaten soldiers of past years still come to Pray. Their number lessens year by year and before very Long the final Bogle Call will have sounded to the last of the invalids. We now drove to the cemetery of Pere la chaise and walked through its streets. I remember the Tomb of one of Napolean s generals named Kellerman and close by it was that of marshal Ney and a Little farther on we came to that of marshal have popular movements to secure advantages to the Quot City of Bridges Quot will in the .

He even went so far As to write a Massena who saved the fortunes of Napo a burlesque entitled Quot Var. Henry Irving and Leon at the great Battle of easling near the or.
