Let me see where was i in my last of yes i had arrived at the end o 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 discard of the effects of alcohol on the Uman system i regret to say i saw a few aggravated symptoms of this character. Well the Small Side Wheeler finally arrived and enfolded my 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 making them regret a portion of their breakfast. I talked with a Porter about a jets he seemed America and would you believe it he had never heard of Dan Antonio or Beguin or any of the important cities of Texas. But he was Well posted on the Irish question. The Steamer bumped against the wharf and my Friend departed for other sources of information. I found Briggs stretched across a clothes hamper deathly Pale with no appetite. I gave him the last of my nay rum Aud he revived and got real Chipper. After a struggle we got our effects spread out before the officer who searched Briggs boxes for Cognac poor Man he suggested the Aroma of spirits Aud did not get on to the fact that it was Briggs himself. He finally pasted the Paster on Briggs effects with a look that plainly said a i knot you have got something about you that should be taxed but ill let you of this Briggs must have Felt guilty for he handed him sixpence which seemed to make him feel that the government had been fairly treat of. 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 a have Yez any fire ammo have Yez any Braccy or cigars have Yez any spirits wid Yez i thought there was a touch of pathos in this last Appeal Aud he seemed much disappointed at the negative reply. We now checked our baggage ahead to Cork alter which i Felt lighter and went to the hotel. Feeling thirsty were paired to the bar room and found a Young woman of Irish extraction in attendance. Bhe smiled Aud withdrew to attend to a customer and my fat Friend flew to a looking Glass and combed Bis Chin whiskers and w As highly engaged in turning his cuffs when sue returned. Reordered something Light Gin i think and i asked the maid if she had some Effer vesting drinks she hesitated a moment Ere replying. A a is soil certainly Titch 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 ave Miles through a most picturesque country. I never enjoyed a ride More than this for while i saw Many other Beautiful parts of Ireland this was the first and left an impression that irishmen ought to he proud of and love old Ireland or Mere is a Beauty in it All its of. In Strong contrast to the Beautiful residences and Rich Fields were the signs of extreme poverty. When approaching a poor Many a habitation children from Little toddlers to those nearly grown ran Aud after bidding us a pleasant Day atones got Down to Lou siness Aud gently requested a Cha Peusy sorr a Penny if the request was refused they became More importunate and As they became Short of breath through Long running the gasp of a Cha Penny sorr Plaze Sor or a Aud if this was not effectual they would run on for another half mile breathing hard but with their eyes Ever on you ant the sound would go on in your imagination until the a Penny sorry came from your Plethoria perhaps purse and you were rewarded with such a smile As a lad breathing for life could give but which had in it thankful Ness and a god bless you my the traveler has to use discretion in giving alms As. If be is too profuse the very Progress of the equipage might endanger life Aud limb. I have been a traveler throw a handful of a Tisall Coin among a crowd of children and in the Al gel that ensued Many were badly scratched Aud bruised. We stopped at a Otheen House b the Way. The Driver also stopped took a Cigar Briggs and the Driver did not. The following morning we took train for Cork where we stopped for lunch and also took observations from a Jaunt us ear. We then left for Killarney via Limerick Junction. We unfortunately went 50 Miles out of our Way but finally got to depot hotel Killarney at to p. In. We were out Early following morning and engaged a car for the lakes. We were again assailed by innumerable beggars and finally arrived at the Gap of Dunlop. Donkeys were on hand but Briggs insisted on walking five Railes Over the mountains. The first part of the walk was very pleasant but my Friend remarked by we reached the top that he regretted having so much flesh. After Dis wind had returned to him we started to descend which was very Steep. Suddenly from behind a huge Boulder jumped three Bright Irish Maidens each armed with a bottle of Otheen and another of goats milk. They assailed us with a broadside of inducements to Purchase. I was not in humor for Otheen and their was something uncongenial about goats milk so i told them i belonged to the Temperance society and tue doctor told me on leaving America whatever i did t must not drink the milk of goats. 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 nah. But there a a Fine fat gentleman that la River get Down Tia Soide of tha Mountain Ridout a drap of tha Cray Ter and a sup of tha Goat a milk Shure and head be foolish altogether wid such a size a him to attempt Briggs laughed at a finally compromised on the pure Otheen we Learned later the cheapest of potato spirits Aud i really thought be would never reach the Bottom. When we did he was a sight and completely exhausted As when seated in the boats we West the entire length of these magnificent lakes enjoying their unparalleled romantic charms poor Briggs 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. I overheard 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 we Orth considerable and he would not risk it that Way again. On our Way to the carriages we visited Koto 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 that he was a Liberal gentleman. Briggs soon showed up Aud smiled they took this As a favourable indication and held up the Otheen bottles this in spite of was inclement. The weather which but remember when you go abroad done to miss Edinburgh. I went with Tome american friends and saw the great Tay Bridge the largest Bridge of the kind in the world. Theu we went to Loch Lomond and Katrine Aud enjoyed their beauties. The following Day took our departure for London the great Center of Europe of which i May say something later.
