Dana, Eastern journeys (1898); Eugene Schuyler, Notes of a journey in Russian Turkestan, etc. (1876); and Poultney Bigelow, Paddles and politics down the Danube; a canoe voyage from the Black Forest to the Black Sea (1892). Charles Augustus Stoddard was another ubiquitous traveller whose works are difficult to classify in one group. His A cross Russia from the Baltic to the Danube (189) takes us into rather out-of-the-way paths, and then he strikes for Spanish cities with glimpses of Gibraltar and Tangier (1892), only to jump to Beyond the Rockies (1894), with A spring journey in California (1895) and some Cruising in the Caribbees the same year. Albert Payson Terhune shows us Syria from the saddle (1896) with his customary virility; John Bell Bouton takes us Roundabout to Moscow (1887), where we instinctively think of George Kennan and his The Siberian exile system (1891) and follow him into Tent life in Siberia through two editions, 1871 and 1910. From there we run back O

rmies of equal strength. It was full of danger to the smaller army, with a great river in its rear in case of disaster. McClellan comes to retrieve the disasters of Richmond, and to infuse new life in the vanishing morale of Pope's disheartened army. It is an open field and a fair fight. It was a conflict between two chiefs who had walked face to face the fiery edge of battle on the banks of the Chickahominy. Hooker's veteran division assailed with intrepid daring Lee's right, but as Gibraltar has dashed for ages the Mediterranean wave, so dashed Lee the assaulting column. Then McClellan's oncoming hosts fling themselves with reckless courage on Lee's center, but as roll a thousand waves to the rock, so Swaran's hosts came on; as meets a rock a thousand waves, so Inisfail met Swaran. The sun rises to the zenith, and Lee's army still holds its front of flame defiant to McClellan's hosts. Burnside occupies the Federal left, but a dangerous bridge across the Antietam has to be c

it is to me and all of us. To suppose that these two heavily armed menof-war were afraid of the Stonewall is to me incredible, yet the fact of their conduct was such as I have stated to you Finding that they declined coming out, there was no course for me but to pursue my voyage. Captain Thomas Craven, who commanded the Niagara, was not the officer who is mentioned in another chapter as the commander of the United States ship Tuscarora, and who had a correspondence with the Governor of Gibraltar in respect to the Confederate ship Sumpter. Captain Thomas Craven was an elder brother of the latter named officer. His conduct in making so much parade of a purpose stopped the Stonewall, and the subsequent failure to accept her invitation to come out and engage her was a good deal criticised at the time. I have no means of knowing what explanation of his conduct he made to his own government, and I should be sorry to repeat any of the gossip of the period which might cast a slur up
ion; but they sing exceedingly small now and drink their brandy cocktails in mysterious silence and wear long faces, and some of them very seedy coats, as the suppression of the mail communication cuts off their supplies, and their credit is very bad. Miscellaneous. Forty-five Spanish war vessels are to sail for the Pacific in April. They are to rendezvous first at Montevideo, and then start for other parts of the American coast. Our latest intelligence of the Sumter is from Gibraltar, February 13, where she was still lying. Her captain had offered twelve dollars a ton for coal, but although the regular price was only eight dollars, all parties refused to sell to him. Prince Napoleon made an important speech in the French Senate on the liberty of the press and in defence of the Government. He said the empire signified to him the glory of France abroad, the destruction of the treaties of 1815, and the unity of Italy. The empire has but "one justification, and t

Her cargo is principally powder and munitions of war. She is heavily laden with arms. The Captain, crew, and twelve passengers, were on board the Bermuda. Also taken, the steamer Florida, captured in St. Andrew's Bay, Florida. She also arrived at the Navy-Yard this afternoon in charge of Prizemaster Lewis. She has on board about two hundred bales of cotton. W. H. Harrison, pilot, with the engineer and nine of the crew, took the oath of allegiance and came aboard the steamer. Nine of the crew, who refused to take the oath, were put ashore in St. Andrew's Bay. The Sumter to be sold. Boston, Mass, May 3. --Captain Semmes and officers of the privateer Sumter, arrived at Southampton, on the 17th day of March, from Gibraltar. Her crew had been paid off and the vessel was to be sold.
