My Ocean voyage Felt Well and ready to land on ground where there Are no snakes Only in exceptional cases though an unnatural condition of the mind super induced by a total dire of the effects of alcohol on the Uman system i regret to say i saw a few aggravated symptoms of this character. Weil the Small Side Wheeler finally arrived and enfolded nay Friend Briggs and myself and soon the distance Between us was so Grea that the fluttering handkerchiefs could not be connected with any one in particular of course we waved for some time on general principles but a wave arrived that set some Down and others up to the guard rail Mak ing them regret a portion of their break fast. 1 talked with a Porter about a jets he seemed America and would you believe it he had never heard of 6an Antonio or Seguin or any of the important cities of Texas. But he was Well posted on the Irish question. The Steamer bumped against the wharf and nay Friend departed for other sources of information. I found brings stretched across a clothes hamper deathly Pale with no appetite. I gave him the last of my nay rum Aud he re Vived and got real Chipper. After a struggle we got our effects spread out before the officer no searched Briggs boxes for Cognac poor Man to suggested the Aroma of spirits Aud did not get Oil to the fact trial it wat Briggs himself. He finally pasted the Paster on Brigg s effects with a look that plainly said i know you have got something about you Tusit should be taxed but i la let you of this Frigga must have Felt Tor he handed him sixpence seemed to make him feel that the government had been fairly treated. In front of me stood a Young lady and her Mother and it was funny to hear the old Irish officer ask each in turn have Yutz any fire arturas have Yez any Braccy or cigars have Yez any spirit Yez i thought there was a touch of pathos in this last Appeal and be seemed much disappointed at the negative reply. We now checked our baggage Ali dad to Cork alter which i Felt lighter and went to the hotel. Feeling thirsty were paired to the bar room and found a Young Irish attendance. She smiled and withdrew to attend to a customer and my fat Friend flew to a looking Glass and combed Chin whiskers and was highly engaged in turning his cuff when she returned. He ordered something Light Gin i think and i asked the maid if she had some Efferee Cibir drinks she hesitated moment Ere replying. Is soil certainly Fitch kind wed be Loike i wed Ric commend that Folie Ould Orish i stopped her and sampled the popular beverage and must say it was excellent. After breakfast we employed a haunting car and drove five Miles through a most picturesque country. I never enjoyed a ride More than this Tor while 1 saw Many other Beautiful parts of to ind. This was the first and left an impression that to he proud of and Iove old Ireland Mere is a Beauty in it All its of. In Strong contrast to the Beauty ii residences and Rich Fields were the signs of extreme poverty. When approaching a poor Mai s habitation children from Little toddlers to those nearly grown ran Aud after bidding us a pleasant Day at once got Down to Maidens and gently requested a Penny sorr a Penny if the request was re fused they became More importunate and As they became Short of breath through Long Gann of Penny sorr Plaze and if this not effectual they would run on for another halt mile breathing hard but with their eyes Ever on you and the sound would go on in your imagination until the Bott came from your Plethoria perhaps Puree and you were rewarded with such a smile As a lad breathing for life could give but which had in it thankful Ness and god bless you my the traveler has to use discretion in giving alms As. If he is profuse the very Progress of the equipage might Senrt Aijrer life Aud limb. I have a traveler a of cupful of com Anu dog a crowd of children and in the tight that ensued Nauy were badly scratched and bruised. We stopped at a Otheen Bouse by the was. The Driver stopped. I took a Cigar Boggs and the Driver j did not. The following to Ruig we took train for Cork where we stopped tar lunch and also took observations from a Jau Utleg oar. We then left for Killarney via Limerick Junction. We unfortunately went 60 Miles out of our Way but finally goo to depot hotel Killarney at 10 p. We were out Early following morning and engaged a car for the jokes. We were again assailed by innumerable beg Gars and finally arrived at the of Dunlop. Donkeys were on hand but Briggs insisted on walking five Miles Over the mountains. The first part of the walk was very pleasant but my Friend remarked As we reached the top that he regretted having so much flesh. After Bis wind had re turned to him we started to descend which was very Steep. Sud Denly Iron behind a huge Boulder jumped three Bright Irish Maidens each armed with a bottle of Pothe ii and another of Goat s milk. They As sailed us with a broadside of induce ments to Purchase. I was not in humor for Otheen Aud their something uncongenial about Goat s milk so i told them 1 belonged to the Temperance society and the doctor this in Eplite of the weather which Wae inclement but Rem tuber when you go abroad Don t Edinburgh. I went with Tome american Friend and saw the great Bridge the largest Bridge of the kind in the world. Then we went to Loch Lomond Aud Katrine Aud enjoyed their beauties. The following Day took our departure for London the great Cen Ter of Europe of which i May say Nome thing later. But As i am afraid i shall have destroyed your patience this time i will Stop. With Best wishes for the and All it rep resents i am very sincerely j. Ems son or. Military Notus. The fort Ham Houston dancing club gave their regular thursday night nop at math s Pavilion.

I pointed at my Friend who was a few Steps in Advance and assured them by nods and smiles that he was fond of Otheen. They seemed to gather in the hint and the Leader started in by remarking a but there s a Fine fat gentleman that la River get Down tha Solde of tha Moun Tain Ridout a drap of tha Cray Ter Aud a sup o tha Goat s milk Shure an he d of foolish altogether wid such a seize a him to attempt Briggs laughed at d finally compromised on the pure Otheen we Learned later the cheap est of potato spirits and i really thought he would never reach the Bottom. When we did he was a sight and completely exhausted As when seated in the boats we went the eur tire length of these magnificent lakes enjoying their unparalleled romantic charms poor Briggi remained fast asleep. We had great difficulty in arousing him at the end of the journey and he slept All the Way to the hotel in the stage. 1 Over How.

There was no one confined in the Post guard House at fort Sam hous ton yesterday nor was there any one released. It the same old Chestnut. The canteen has made a change some heard him the of lowing morning giving his impressions of the lakes to an admiring audience in the smoking room he seemed thoroughly enthused. We of course visited and kissed the Blarney Stone and Briggs said his neck was Worth considerable and he would not risk it that Way again. On our Way to the carriages we visited Roco Castle and were beset on emerging by a new lot of barefooted girls with the Otheen and goats milk As i emerged first i told them that my father would be Down directly and i that he was a Liberal gentleman. Briggs soon showed up Aud smiled they took this As a favourable Indica Tion and held up the Otheen bottles a knowing look came into Briggs Eye. He flatly refused they lavished Blarney by the Yard but Briggs was firm on the question but not quite steady from the last invest ment. At last he broke and ran and expressed himself As relieved that he had escaped. We arrived in Dublin july 17, and after toilet and refresh ment started to see a Dublin theatre. This was a strange experience. A fat Man came out and commenced to sing i an Irish Ballad. Finally the crowd began to hum with him and ended by joining heartily in the chorus i after wards understood that his salary de Pended on his ability to enthuse his audience sufficiently to induce them to join in with his bongs and i was informed that where a Singer cannot arouse sufficient enthusiasm for at least some help in the chorus the management Jook sharply for ancient Hen fruit. The performance was fair but would hardly have passed for an american theatre. It seems an Irish characteristic that where they like you they cannot do enough for you and where they doa t they Don t do even a Little. We arrived in Belfast july 20th and one could see and feel a differ ence at once the whole place seemed astir with activity and business seemed the Bent of the people. I should say Belfast is the most Active and progressive City in Ireland Odds. But place for pipe smokers the air is full of it and judging from the Aroma i should say the tobacco was not the Best. I was nearly smothered in a crowd of men and Cloud of tobacco on the steamship Landing while wait lug for the boat. I think i never so thoroughly appreciated pea air before and even the effect of the Waves could not compare with those pipes. We stopped one night in Glas Gow and departed following morning Tor Edinburgh. I was never More pleased with a City in my life and the Post canteen has had a Bill of fare made out and posted on a Post. A Man will now know what to order. The Post canteen issues checks from 9 a.
