I have spent a Good pah of two Days there and Meari to revisit it on my return. Eu80pea.1 railway Cari Vagim. The european railway so furl have yet seen them Are More expensive and less convenient than ours. Each is absolutely divided into apartments about the size of a mail coach and calculated to hold eight persons. The result is thirty two seats where an Ameri can car of equal length and weight would hold at least fifty and of the thirty two passengers one half must inevitably ride backward. I eve the second class cars Are More sociable and mean to make their acquaintance. I should have done it this time but for my desire to meet some one with whom i could Converse and americans and englishmen Are Apt to cling to the first class places. My aim was disappointed my companions were All frenchmen and what was worse All inveterate smokers. They kept puffing through the Day first All of them then three two and at All events one till they Gol out at Dijon near Nightfall when be fore i had time to congratulate myself on the atmospheric improvement another Frenchman not in lit his Cigar and went at it. All this was direct and flagrant violation of the rules persons with a weather or Foremost apartment directly under the Driver with a Lookout on each aide and in front Over the tacks of the horses the Middle apart ment which is much like the Interior of our Ordinary stage coach and the rumble or rear apart Rnell calculated for servants or other cheap Irav Elers. Two thirds of the roof was covered with a ton or two of baggage and merchandise and in this behind and Dri ver s seat is the Banquette a single Seal across the lop calculated to hold four person chaise top to be thrown Back in Fine and a Glass from to be let Down by night or in Case of rain. I chose my seat Here As affording he Best possible View of the country. At 8 p.

France is a land of Plains and Glades and gentle acclivity is Savoy is a country of Moun ams.

I have but a Flint Hope of it. French Fahm Inci. The Ruil Roud from Paris to Chalons passes through a generally level Region watered by of the Seine and of the Saon with a Range of gentle Hills skirting the valleys Gene rally on the right and sometimes on either hand As in England the track is never allowed to Cross a Carriage Road on its own level but is earned under or Over each. The soil is usually Fertile and Well not so skilfully and thoroughly is that of England. There Are places however in which the cultivation could try visible in the Clear italian atmosphere frown the streets of this sunny Metropolis at a distance of some thirty Miles North. Our route Lay through Savoy for about a Hundred Miles and not one acre in thirty within eight of it can Ever be slowed. Yet tha mountains Are in Good part composed of Limestone so that the narrow sheltered valleys decidedly Fertile and the Vine is often s to thrive on the Steep Rocky Hill sides where the plow could not be forced an Inch be Low , and where an of could not keep ins footing. Every Inch of ground that can be is cultivated j Little patches of wheat or grass or vines Are got in whenever there is a Patch of soil though no.

J de for eight fresh new ones we commenced the slow laborious ascent of some six or Rekhl Miles. Human habitations had already become scattered and us frequent but we passed three or four m ascending the Mountain.

On my return from the upper Mississippi i found myself obliged to Cross one of the wide Prairies which in Hal portion of the United slates wry the appearance of the country -1 the weather was Fine .11 around me was As fresh and Blooming As if it had just issued from Bown of nature.

Two or three houses stood Here for the use of travellers around them nothing but Snow and the naked planet. Before us Lay the Valley of the to the great Plain of Italy. Six o Foj our horses were Here detached and sent Back to the Savoy base of the Mountain with the two remaining our rapid and dashing descent. The Mountain is decidedly Sleeper on this Side than the other it is Only surmounted by a succession of zigzags so near each other that i hink we travelled three Miles in making a direct Progress of one Dur ing which we must have descended some feet. Daylight found us at the fool of the Moun Tain and at 8 o clock a. We were in Turin descending the Alps to the easter South into Piedmont a new world lies around arid before you.

We were allowed Twenty five minutes for breakfast which would have been very Well but that the time required for cooking most of the breakfast had to come out of it.
