e the dinner I have described, we continued the topics of our walk. This was my day's round after I had seen the chief of those things in Rome that require mid-day, so that I was able to keep in the house. I read Dante, Tasso's Gerusalemme, the Decameron of Boccaccio, the Rime of Politian, all the tragedies of Alfieri, the principal dramas of Metastasio —some six vols.,—the Storia Pittorica of Lanzi, the Principe of Macchiavelli, the Aminta of Tasso, the Pastor Fido of Guarini; and much of Monti, of Pindemonte, Parini, the histories of Botta, the Corbaccio and Fiammetta of Boccaccio, &c. Since I left Rome I have continued my studies; have read the Promessi Sposi by Manzoni,—the finest romance I have ever read,—the Rime of Petrarch, Ariosto, all of Macchiavelli—except his tract on the art of war—embracing his Discorsi, his Storia, his comedies; the Storia of Guicciardini, the tragedies and Rime of Manzoni, the principal plays of Niccolini, Nota, and Goldoni, Lettere di Jacopo Or

This was one of several occasions when she read a sermon at the house of Miss Leigh Smith, a stanch Unitarian, who lived at the Trinita dea Monti in the house near the top of the Spanish Steps, held by generations of English and American residents the most advantageous dwelling in Rome.

er I owe two very happy evenings, which I shall always remember with grateful pleasure. Count Cicognara gave me a letter to her, and she immediately told me that her house, which is one of the finest palaces in Bologna, would be open to me every evening. She is still young, not above thirty, I should think, very beautiful, with uncommonly sweet and engaging manners and talents, which make her at once the centre of literary and elegant society in Bologna, and the friend and correspondent of Monti, Canova, Brougham, and many others of the first men of the times we live in. Last evening there were few persons at her coterie. Only two or three men of letters, a young Greek from Corcyra, a Count Marchetti and his pretty wife, Lord John Russell, and a few others. The conversation was chiefly literary, and so adroitly managed by Mad. Martinetti as to make it general, but as two of the persons present were strangers it began to fail at last, and she resorted to the very games we play in A

ompanion I ever had for jaunts of this kind. We go out in the morning, carrying the roast chestnuts from Rome; the bread and wine are found in some lonely little osteria; and so we dine; and reach Rome again, just in time to see it, from a little distance, gilded by the sunset. This moon having been so clear, and the air so warm, we have visited, on successive evenings, all the places we fancied: Monte Cavallo, now so lonely and abandoned,—no lights there but moon and stars,— Trinita dea Monti, Santa Maria Maggiore, and the Forum. So now, if the rain must come, or I be driven from Rome, I have all the images fair and fresh in my mind. About public events, why remain ignorant? Take a daily paper in the house. The Italian press has recovered from the effervescence of childish spirits;— you can now approximate to the truth from its reports. There are many good papers now in Italy. Whatever represents the Montanelli ministry is best for you. That gives the lead now. I see good<

Petersburg, Jan. 25. --The follow dispatch, dated at Knexville last night, has been received here: Gen. Crittenden rallied his forces at Monti cello, and will make a stand there. Monticello is only twenty-five miles from Somerset. The flying, frightened fugitives have greatly exaggerated our disaster. Nashville, Jan. 24, (via Mobile, 25.)--The most reliable information we have received here of the engagement at or near Somerset is to the effect that only two regiments--Col. Battle's Tennessee and Col. Statham's Mississippi--Were engaged in the fight near Mill Springs. The estimated number of our killed and wounded, and prisoners taken from us, varies from three to five hundred. Gen. Crittenden, with nearly all his force, is now at Monticello. Stores and equipments are being sent to him. The Confederates, after s
