Turner festival Abroad.
--At the recent great Turner
festival at Berlin
, five or six thousand Turners went through the movements of the school, and an observer says that it was a peculiar and highly interesting sight; the precision and alacrity with which the different evolutions and manœuvres were executed by the strong-limbed, tall and well shaped young men, excited real and general admiration.
At one time, when all the arms, by word of command, were stretched up high and straight, it reminded us of a field of Indian corn suddenly sprung up; then the bending of the thousands of human forms to the right and to the left, with an accuracy which made them appear like one body, might be compared again to the waves of a field, its corn-years moved by the wind.
This lasted about an hour and a half.
