Tlio Trenton Imd been thoroughly overhauled since her Inst cruifiu ns Dug-ship of tha European station, and many- improvement* lied he-en introduced, tho chief of which was the electric Tight. This is tho first ship iu our Fcrvicft whieh'hris been lighted by electricity? nud tho first man-of-war in any service, I believe, in which tno electric light baa- entirely done,sway w i t h the old oil lumps.

The lamps are ton niul sixfcaou candlo power, and give a sploadid li^ut. 1 li-j Trvntcu is 271 feetlong;, breadth of beam forty-f-ipht feet, displacement of water :300 toii;--.

Entering, one finds himself in a church 018 feet Iduff. 440 feat length of .transepts, 440 feet high, and covering an nrea of £40,000 square fet. .-It is built;. in tho form of a.-.cross, tho navo aud aisles forming--one arm and the transepts the other. Jn tbe -aisles are pointings, statues and sarcophagi, find on one side of them are numerous cbapels, wDere devout,Catholics may ba saun at worship all hours of the day. , Thsj navp is without seats of any kind,,aud when the high nUar-in the center is used those who^form the congregation haw to bring their chairs, sit on tho marble floor or stand. Near the high altar is a sitting statuo of Poter in bronze, the rig tit; foot of which is much worn by devout Crttao-' lies kissing it. Near the cathedral is the Vatican, a collection of palaces built by different popes. From, "tbo outside', it looks very much like a" large -factory. The present' pope chooses to consider himself a prisoner in tho Vatican, and, I believe, neverUoaves the grounds While the Vatican does not.present nn imposing aspect from the exterior, it coa-' tains rutmy at tractive-objects, some of which ' I saw. 'J ho Cistino chapol is ono. ' It! is colo- ' bratcd for its paintings In fresco, by .Michaol Augelo. Ihe roof is adorned with*,paintiags rt presenting the separation of light from darkness, tho creation of Evo, tho fall of Adam and Eve, find ether biblical, facts, q.nd is truly beautiful. Behind, the altar, occupying oao whole er.d of the chapel, is the celebrated fresco by Michael Angelb, the Last Judgment. 'Ihe picture gallery was not open to visitors, but tbo loggio of Eaphaol, whero are Raphael's frescoes, aud the Vatican musouui, consisting of objects of art that used to adorn tha principal buildings of ancint Koruo, and ·which have been discovered," were visiced. I cnme away from St. Peter's and tbo Vatican feeling that I had already boeu well paid for mv visit to Rome. . . - Tbe old Roman forum formed another poiufc of interest. Tbe.forum, between the Cap- ftolino and Palatina bills, had been, covered by tho heaping up during ages of earth, stone, etc.. to a depth of SO feet; a great deal ot this has been removed, and nu idea can now be-formed of what the forum-was. The forum is an open space, 73 foot long and 117 feet wide, at the end away from the capitol; the end near tho capifcol is niqre^tban 200 feet wide, surrounded by buildings. Noticeable in tho forum are tho Temple of Castor and Pollux, Temple Tomb of Julius Crcsar, Senate Houso and the Rostra Julia. It was to the Rostra Julia that Cssar's body was brought for some friend to make a funeral oration over it; Mark Antony mounted the rostra and there made bis favorite speech "whieb moved tbe people to that degree that they immediately burned tha body in that very place, and afterwards interred tbe On one aido of the forum is Palatine bill. It was tho site of the grandest buildings of the imptrial times; excavations are goijg on, and tbo ruins of those buildings, many of great interest, are being brought to light. 'Near the Fahitiuo is the Arch of Titus, a triumphal arch erected to Titus, tho conqueror of Jerusalem.

" 4, 3884. -- A general feeling of gloom and depression pervades our quiet . l.ut eppreciativo community, occasioned by xhe irreparable loss it has sustained in the death of Galen Hodges, an old and highly ref pected citizen nnd a Texas veteran. He died in Victoria, Tex., on tho 10th instant, after a lingering: iJlues?, nud at tho time was en route (in company with his old comrade Uncle John Plunkett, a San Jacinto veteran,) to the annual reunion of veterans at Paris, Tex,, when, . bo was stricken down.

Deceased had .attained to tho ripe old Pgo of Eoventy-one, and had resided litre continuously for the past forty-six years, tut was born in the State \( Rhode Island. Tiuly an old landmark is go no.

The evening of tho TSth found us again im- drr way, bound for Gibraltar. ^Vo spent Christiijos at sea, beiug the tbinl Christmas tbat I have passed iti tho Atlantic in the lost four years. JJccorober 23 wo woro gliil to aa- chur in Gibraltar bnrbor,and to know that Gbe woit poit of our cruisd to Asia was over. "\Ve i cztiaitied at Gibraltar till January S,those a m c n g u s y . h o had not marto a tour of the reck availing themselves tbo people of Rome, to commemorate tho victories of the fhst Christian emperor. Near the .arch of Cuustautiue is the Colosseum, which Byron describes as "A noble wreck in ruinous perfection." The Colosseum t a vast amohithoatcr, -was erected in ttie center of ancient Rome, between 73 A. D. and SO A. D. It was 157 feet hifih nnd 1900 feet in circumference, and was built by the captive Jews after the fall of Jerusalem. F~or uenrJy ooo j-eam ID was tbo popular resort of tho Roman people. There were eightv arches of entrance, tho theater held 1CO,0(}0 pcop!o and could be emptied in toa minutes. It was used for tUe exhibition of ·wild beasts'; wild-boost «rn*phts, gladiatorial combats ana naval fights. When perfect the Colosseum,'-was four stories high.. It was uos covered; and when performances-pr exhibitions -were held, an awniug was .spread ovoi* the top by sailore from tho imperial fleet. Tbe last per form mice wast a^ bull fight; iu 153A There is now only about one-third of the noble Tvreck left, but sufficient to give a good idea 'of what it was -when perfect.. It presents a beautiful sight by moonlight. Many martyrs aro said to havo perished iu tbe Colosseum during tbo persecution of tho oitrly Christiana. A short, walk from the Colosseum is the Church of St. John Lateran and the Laterau palace. This church wcs founded by Constantine. and contains the heads, it "is said, of " Foul and John, Tho Lateran palace used to be used as the dwelling plane of tbe pop*s. ^ few feet from tbo church, is the scalu santa, i . .. s fr6m| Aden is Far Aden,which is reached Ijy a good jroad cutr from "the rock, aud along Tfliich oro ! i curious sights--camels, cows re- ·sernblin# tjhe holy cows exhibited in oui* home "circuses, -rponkeys aud 'nativote.--"The clothing .of the natives consists of anything, from ·Inothiiig to uthiu.wi-appoiv Ostrich feathers, ostrich eggs and tiger.skins aro among tho or- -ficles exhibited for sale. ··Wo left Aden tab 14th of Harch, and; after a pleasant passacro, reached Bombay the £lst. Bombay.ia an'Eng- ' lish possession; and presents the aspect of a modern city from our anchorage, the fine public buildings showing off to -great advantage. It ia a city of. about 800,000 inhabitants, consisting of Europeans, Hindus, .Parnees, etc.; it is situated on.tho Island of Bombay. Tho public.buildings aro very pretty, but tho na- ·^ five quarter,-of the towu.is dirty and uuat-. tractive, except in so far as it shows tho customs and manner of living oZ the natives. The - Eindiis/Farsees and otfaepi' natives are not loaded down with supcrHu6us. clothing, aad one row of beads frequently forms the only attire of children. The 'grown people, however, frequently have as much" covering for -the body as a good-sized towel would afford. The upper clnsses are 1 " fairly dressed. About three miles from the landing place -is the Pur- tees 1 burying ground, whore ore tho famous Towers of Silence. The Pnrsees' method o? /disposing of their dead is peculiar. The funeral ceremony takes place aC tho house of the de,ceased, usually nbout twelve hours after death, and never longer than twenty-four -hours after death, on account of the climate. Among other things, a dog is bronght in to look at the body, a dog being a sacred animal with the Pa,rsees. Alter the funeral ceremouy the body, bi?ins in an open receptacle, is borne by tho body- bearers, who livo apart trom other peo- of ths opportunity, niul then proceeded to JIarieilles, France, ar- rivirg tbero on tha 7th. Mf.rst-iWes is ono of tho principal cities in Frnncc and ono of great commercial importance. On nn inland.nenr tho city is tho Chateau riMf,one of tbe numerous prisons that used to I e so well filled with political prisoner?, and one that bos been made famous, or perhaps better inftimcus, by tbo part it plays in Du- moVs Count of JMonte Cristo, where it figures as the- place where the hero of the novel was imprisoned. At Marseilles wo received oa board two electric search lights, each of about 1500 candle power. The principal use for these lights is to search for torpedoes, but they miy also be used in coming into harbors on dark nights, and for other purposes where a powerful light is required. From Marseilles, the Coreau embassy .went to London and Paris, and when 1 toy returned ttie ship proceeded to Naples, Italr, arriving tbe 4th of February.. At Naples TVO found the United States ship Lancaster, flag-shio of the European station, nnd the United States shio JCsarsaree came in before we left. 'Six o f " tho naval cndets who came out with us were transferred to tho Lancaster. Being granted four days leuye of absence, I made a visit to Rome, which is reached from Naples by rail in about; seven hours. * Coming into Rome the city wallsare seen and also the iiiins of an old aqueduct that used to ronvey water to the city. Tho ho tels in Rome, like others in Europe, i ore c-old and drearv. They ana conducted on the European or pay-for-what- you-get plan. Tho pay for the room does not include the light or the services of the servant who attends to it, or anything, in fact, except the rccin, bed and water. The city is divided into two ports by the river Tiber; tho modern city ia divided from old Rome by the Capitoline hill, and from that hni tho other six hills cnii be seer,. "Four of the hills are isolated mounts, and the other tnreo jot out from high- Iniifl. Tho Tiber is aboat 250 miles Jong; it frequently avcruowp,:aud this, with fire, raids by tfce Koi theners, sieges by the Goths, wars, the destruction of many monuments .by the Romans themselves during ths dark ages in order to meke lime for building new houses and palnces, caused Rome ? s destruction. Modern Rome .is a '^nhctureof narrow streets, open squares, churcfces,. fountains, rains, new palaces end dirt." About the first sight one wishes to see on reaching Romo is St Pet«r, the njost famous of churches, and it .certainly came up to my expectations, and even exceeded them. St. Feter is built on part of tbe site of the circas of Kero, where, so say the Roman Catholics, Fcfrr. suffered martyrdom. The cathedral cost £60,000,000. On each side of- the piazza in front of the church are four rows of · lofty , flight, of twenty-eight marble stops, said to Imve been brought from Jerusalem, wllere it formed the stall's of Pilate*s house, and the Savior is said to .have once ascended thorn. Ihe asceut can only be made on the knees. By gciug up tbe stairs on tbe knees, tho Catholics beliovo that a thousand years indul- g ence is granted. Luther had mado tho asceat alf way, when he suddenly stood up, turned around and w/dkcd down. Ho said thai; a voice had whispered to him: "Tho just sutill live by faith." , Tho Church of S. Mary Maggidre is one of tire prettiest in Rome. It is among the oldest of the churches dedicated to tho virgin. Tho legend goes that the virgin appeared to the pepe in a dream and commanded him to build a church where snow would be found on a certain day. Snow was found nnd the church bniltnt ihat place. The church was founded in A. D. 35^. It contains boards from the manger of Christ, and the head of Matthew. Coming back into modern Rome the forum of Trojen is fecn, and also the Pantheon. The Pantheon was not open to visitors; in that church rests the body of Victor Emanuel. The Church ot St. Paulj without tho walls, was built - to commemorate tho martyrdom of Paul. It is a vast ball ot beautifully polished mnrblp, 38G feet long end over 200 feec wide, and is the handsomest church in Rome. Near it is a small chapel, where Peter aud Paul are fnid to have lost parted. Of course, this is cccording to Romanism, . as tho Protestants do net believe tbat Peter over camo to Rome. The Church of the Capucincs is of interest on -nccctut of tbe crypt where tho bones of the deceused members aro kept, Tho crypt consists of a mirnLer of rooms in tho basement o] the church. The dead are buried .in these . rooms, nnd after a time their- bones are taken up and the walls and roofs of the. roomsiro artistically decorated (?) with them, forming a phastJy spectacle. . · : :Tbo favorito resort of the Romans in the afternoons is Puicion hill, whore a military band plays every day from 4 to 6 p. ni. a"here the upper classes frequently make and receive visits in their carriages. The promeuaiio is very pretty and a good view of Rome is': had from the hill. ,- :, A drive along tho Appinn way., which, ivas made a roadway B. C. in 312, aud in liithes past was of grent importance, is very intorost- ing. A good view is had of tho ;surrouiJiding country, and among the niany tombs which are seen along tbe roads ore some of much interest. On the drive out on ttiis road I visited tbe baths of Caracolla, which covered an area of HOjOOO square yards and could accommodate at one time 1GOO persons,, and the catacombs of ST. Calistns. The catacombs consist of a great many underground passages, forming corrl- dore, the walls of which are honey-combed with graves. There are about sisccy of these catacombs around Rome of different namjis, nnd they wero used as burial places. by ube early Christians. · t I have mentioned most of the places of interest that I saw during-my stay in Roma, which wns only nbout three days and a half. There were many -clacks-that I would .have liked to visit, if my time had not been so short, but those places that I was most anxious to ECO-I managed to take in. One can see'a great 'deal in Rome in three days, tho city covering yer3' little ground, considering' the number of inhabitants. Tbe last place tbat I visited was the Fountain. of T.revi, tho water for which is conveyed by an s aqueduct from many miles without the city. Tho foiin- tain fe the prettiest one I saw ia Rome; ifcis semi-circular in shape and is adorned with statues and reliefs, the water gushing out frcm innumerable orifices. The legend says that if, on leaving Rome, one throws a penny into tbe fountain nnd takes a drink of the water, he is sure to return to RouaeJ "Would tbat the legend were correct. "We left Kaples the.gOth of February for Port Snid,;Egypt, where we arrived"tl le 35th. Port Snid, at the Mediterranean entrance to ibe^irufz cpunl, belongs- to Egrpt, bufc its ia- j.nhit0itts are rrJnrfpRlly- Europeans. Tho ,-uildings are very ordinary, the streets wide 'pie, tothoTovrers of Silence, or rather ono of tho towers, the mourners following behind at a distance of thirty yards, and joined to eocjp other with handkerchiefs held in tho hands. The TowersofSilencoarefivein number, and are built of the hardest blosk granite ncd covered with a light substance. Each .tower is about thirty feet high aud ninety foot in circumference, and is entered near the top .by a door, The circular spaca on top is di- ·vJded into throe rorts by concentric eireles.ond In eacn or these parts are siialJow Jron receptacles or coflins; the outer row of colHus is for xuou, tho middle for women * aud tho inner for children. 'Ihe \vhcle slopes toward tho center, where there is a well about eight feet in diameter leading to the .bottom, where there are ravages lending to four wolls placed at equal ·intervals around the circumference' of the bottom of the tower. These wells are filled with charcoal. No one, except tbe body- bcarerSj arc allowed to approach within thirty Tiritfs of one of these towers after it has beea ; 'dedicated. At un canal distance: from the towers, on a hill SCO feet high, is tlio Farsees Fire Temple, where a Sro bos boon kept going for £00 years. Kroui this hill a good view is had of the towers, and a model of oua of them is*hown visitors. A'll n round the edge of the top of tbo towers, nt nearly equal* intervals, are large vultures, sitting iu a lazy, silent attitude, with their heads dropping. On tho Approach of a funeral procession, a commotion is seen among tha vultures. When cho procession arrives at tho Fire Temple it halt?, und the body is borne to tho tower selected by tho botTy-bearers, the mourners repairing to t*he Fire Tt-mplo to say prayers for tho dead. The body-bearers tote the body through tho dcor in the tower, disrobe it,."'and' place it in one of the coffins: they then leave tbe tower ar.d immediately the vultures swoop down, on ·the body, devouring all the flesh in about five minutes, and then toko their places and resume the silent, luzy attitude, aud wait for tho next funeral. The body-bearers after leaving the tower go to a hou(»e near"by aud shift into new clothes. Tho body remains on the tower ; for not longer than a month,' the usual time . hi ing about two weeks, when the body-bearers go to the tower and take tbo bones*and placs\ them iu the well in the center of the tower. The heat of the sun soon reduces tho bones to dnt and the rain water carries the dust from tbe center well' to the other Jour- wells around tbo circumference, tho charcoal in those wells yurifyiug the water before it goes off into the earth. In addititiou to tho five towors spoken of there is another tower,, a square one, usad for the bodies of those who have been hanged. The reason given for having a/separate tower for those who have been hanged is lliat tho body is handled by the very loivost class, the hangman being taken from that class, the crime for which the criminal is executed hav- I icfr nothing to do with it, Tho towers aro · built at great expense, 'one of them costing ;ahout $150,000.

KEATING ET AI.. vs. VAUGHAX--From Hays county. Opinion byStayton. J. Under the act of March 24, lTD, a resignation of the assignee is a refusal to execute the trust, and the county judge bos the power to remove him and appoint another. The acceptance of tbe order of removal, which, when made, calls f or the appointment of another, and all persons interested baing notified, tbo subsequent appointment ot the assignee is valid; Whore tho deed of .assignment conveyed certain designated .property, -without in terms declaring that the property thus conveyed was all the assignor possessed except that oreinpt fioni forced sale,, but tho inventory made a port - of tho assignment and the required oath contained clear and .unequivocal declarations that the property convened by tbo deed and named particularly in tho inventory was all tho estate of the assignee, of every. character, which he owned, Except camel property^ which was exempt from forced sale. Hold, these papers should be taken together as tbo assignment, and tho deed considered with reference to them, and thus considered, tho · some is valid. The statute makes provision with reference to n on-consenting creditors. The fact fbat some of th'o non-consenting creditors are non-residents does not invalidate tho deed, nor is tbe deed invalid because it stipulates for a release of tho debtor by the consenting creditors.
