city. It is called in Ptolemy Naxuana, and by Moses Chorenensis, the Armenian historian, Idsheuan; but at the place itself Nachidsheuan, which signifies The first place of descent, and is a lasting monument of the preservation of Noah in the ark, upon the top of that mountain, at whose foot it was built, as the first city or town after the flood. See Antiq. B. XX. ch. 2. sect. 3; and Moses Chorenensis, who also says elsewhere, that another town was related by tradition to have been called Seron, or, The Place of Dispersion, on account of the dispersion of Xisuthrus's or Noah's sons, from thence first made. Whether any remains of this ark be still preserved, as the people of the country suppose, I cannot certainly tell. Mons. Tournefort had, not very long since, a mind to see the place himself, but met with too great dangers and difficulties to venture through them. The Place of Descent; for the ark being saved in that place, its remains are shown there by the inhabitants to this day.

English a part of the time with a success that quite surprised me. . . . He [Baron Lindenau] is, however, one of those uncommon men who have so much earnestness as well as power within them, that their ideas are forced out through almost any obstacles. In debate in the Chamber of Deputies he is by far the first, as I hear from all sides. We passed the evening at a small and very sociable supper-party at Countess Bose's,—Mr. Krause of Weisstropp, Count Baudissin with his pretty niece, and Mons. and Mad. de Luttichau. M. de Luttichau was Court Director of the Theatre, Tieck being its literary supervisor, while the practical management was of course in inferior hands. It is by such arrangements that the German theatre is kept at such a high standard of intellectual and artistic merit. Mad. de Luttichau is not only one of the prettiest ladies in Dresden, but she has more good sense and is more spirituelle; besides which her good and pleasant qualities are all brought out by natur

America. By the arrival of the steamship America, at Boston, we have the following foreign items, in addition to what has already been published: The America, from Liverpool, reports the arrival out of the Bavaria, from New York. She also spoke the Asia and City of Washington. The steamship Columbia, of the Galway line, had arrived at Liverpool to repair damages received from ice. During a debate in the French Senate, on the petition to extend the French occupation of Syria, Mons, Bilant explained that France would evacuate Syria on the 5th of June, and if evil result ensued, the responsibility will rest on those who demand the withdrawal. France will leave six vessels to cruise off Beyrout, and English and Russian ships will act in concert with them. Kossuth had arrived at Turin. Klapka had gone to see Garibaldi and returns to meet Kossuth. Rio de Janeiro date to the 25th have been received. Coffee is quoted as follows:--Good firsts 6∥800a7∥650.
A very French Incident. --A late French journal relates the following well invented story, which, it will be seen, is French all over While Mons, Godard was fitting an immense balloon in the Champ de Mars, he amused the spectators by sending up the small figure of a man, the perfect semblance of M. thiers without spectacles. The little man being filed with gas, rose majestically into the air, and was soon lost to view among the clouds. His adventures, which became known the next day, were curious. Thanks to a strong and favorable gain, which impelled him on his course, the little balloon man arrived the same afternoon in the sight of a fine country house in the neighborhood of Blevro. It was near the hour of dinner, and the lady of the mansion, who naturally thought herself perfectly safe, was occupied in the mysteries of her It was a warm day, and she had opened one of the windows which looked out upon the park, and was safe from any prying eyes. While tranquilly
