, not preachers, spoke gratefully of the mercy of God to them in blessing their imprisonment. Fifteen had professed faith in Christ. Twenty others gave the hand in pledge of a new life. It was a holy, blessed day to the souls of many, though the body was shut up in close imprisonment. We could all thank God for the freedom of the soul, and for soul religion. Among the converts was Lieutenant Wm. J. Read, of Tennessee, son of Dr. Read, missionary of the Baptist Central Foreign Missions to Siam. From this time the work spread till there was a great revival among the officers imprisoned there. There were many religious men among the officers. There were 13 preachers among them—6 Baptist, 6 Methodist and I Episcopalian. There were 102 Baptists, 95 Methodists, 45 Presbyterians, 37 Episcopalians, a few Catholics, Lutherans, Jews, and others who had a religion of some sort, among the prisoners, and over 100 professed during the winter, spring and summer. Thus God sanctifies sufferin

For him the Pyramids had a special door, and Memphis and Thebes were thrown open as to a successor of the Pharaohs; for him the Pope dispensed with the usual etiquette and welcomed a Protestant and a democrat who did not kneel. With him the King of Siam contracted a personal friendship and kept up a correspondence afterward; while the Emperors of Russia and Germany and Japan, the Viceroy of India and the Magnates of Cuba and Canada and Mexico talked politics to him and religion from their own several standpoints. The greatest potentates of earth laid aside their rules and showed him a courtesy which was due of course in part to the nation he represented; but who ever so represented a nation before? not only the Government, but the plaines

At least on several occasions in the Chinese waters and around Burmah, Siam, and Japan there were marked failures in those compliments which were paid him everywhere else in Asia. I was then in England, but kept up a constant correspondensent a copy to every potentate all over the world by whom he had been entertained; to the Mikado of Japan and to Bismarck; to the Viceroy of India and the Kings of Siam and Sweden and Greece; the Prince of Wales and the Presidents of Switzerland and the French Republic; and every one acknowledged the present except the Prince of Wlying before me when you were in had the acknowledgments from Lytton [Lord Lytton, then Viceroy of India], the first received.

ooks--two splendidly bound folio volumes, carefully bagged over with linen covers. Each leaf is embellished with a beautifully illuminated border, exactly surrounding the space required to attach a bank-note. When any distinguished visitor arrives he is requested to place his autograph to an unsigned note, which is immediately pasted over one of the open spaces.--One of these volumes is quite full, and the other nearly half full. They are thus illustrated by the signatures of various royal and noble personages. That of "Victoria Regina" does not appear; but these of Napoleon III., Henry V., the Kings of Sweden, Portugal and Prussia, a whole brigade of German Princes, Ambassadors from Siam, Persia, Turkey — the latter in oriental characters — and some of our higher nobility. Though there are some scientific names, as Arenburg and Chevalier, there are but few of our literary celebrities. Among them I observed those of Lady Sale and Mahomet Ali, the Pacha of Egypt.

The reception given to the Consul by the first King was carried out according to the ancient etiquette of Siam; the Consul was accompanied by thirty-nine magnifSiam; the Consul was accompanied by thirty-nine magnificent gondolas, by banners and palanquins, by Mandarins in the richest costumes, and a body of troops, about 1,500 in number. The King received him seated on his Throne of State, with his most splendid crown on his head, and decorated with the insiglanguage. The interview with the second King was equally brilliant, and had this peculiarity, that this sovereign, while remaining faithful to the traditions of Siam, has adopted customs and even Court ceremonies of an entirely European character.
