As we continued to sail we found ourselves gradually becoming surrounilud by this whole, and we realized that this vast circuit was divided by a wide area ot that sea whose wu- ers reflected the many colored lights, lending a fairy-like effect, and we understood that we were sailing in the midst of -a crreat metropolis resting half in Europe and half in Asia, The enchanting splen- der of this nocturnal scene was sufficient to repay us for our disappointment at not arriving before sunset, and we remained until late on deck in • silent admiration enraptured with the brilliant illumination. Now and. then a richly gilded kayck glided quietly but with great ripidity over the smooth surface of the water, carrying some late returning Mussulman to his home across the Bosphorus. We retired with thoughts full of scenes from the "Arabain Nights," making sleep an impossibility.

She insists on the importance of tho lost art of story-tolling tu an essental factor in » child's education, and endeavors to in- *trucUl:o mothers in the mysteries of that ait. A genuine story-toller is born, not Baiulf, and like'natural poetic genius the ^ spontaneity of story-telling decays with tiie growth of civilization. There will never be any stories like those which the liniplo old village crone mumbles to the circle of wide-eyed children pressing about her; legendary tales in which tho declinations of trim and false have no meaning; echoes of the golden ago . -wliich a'.w.iys lies just a little back of the present, when princes mid elfin queens •vere tenants of the greenwood, and life was but as the burden of a summer song.

All tho ISvenU of a Lifetime Repented in the Hnilii ot Hanging or Drowning-. In "Blackwood" some curious examples are given by the writer of a well-known phenomenon— the fact that the events of a lifetime will pass sometimes in a moment through the mind of a person who is on tho point of death by drowning or suffocation. Speaking of the death of Lord Ponsonby, who was hanged by the mob in Paris in 1791, and cut down beiore life was extinct, the author says: He ((Lord Ponsonby) proce3ded to give an account of his sensation on returning to consciousness. He could not have been actually suspended in mid-air more than a few seconds, and yet in that brief space of time all the events of his past life passed through his mind. It is true that his life to tho date had not been a very eventful one,, being onjy 19 years of age, but overy pust sensation was renewed in all its freshness. It is also remarkable that ho did no at the time experience any sensation of fear, while he added, his was an essential iibrvoas temperament. This remarkable mental power of calling up the past in moments of suspended animation 1 have heard frequently mentioned. One was the cat-e of Oount Zichy, in the revolucion of 1848 in Vienna. He was caught by the savage mob, hung like Lord Ponsonby in the middle of the street, when his own regiment of dragoons charged down and cut the cords as ho was swinging in the air. He fell to the ground and was supposed to be dead; but his recovery was a very different matter from Lord" Ponsonby's, for he had suffered agonies, and for ton days had four men constantly with him. Ho describes exactly the same sensations as Lord Fonsonby: of the patrols striking on the pavements with their iron shod staves. This latter sound decreased as the morning began to dawn, until at last, had it not been tor an occasional dog, we should have been in dead silence. In the midst of this we were startled by a solemn voice, which seemed to be chanting. Approaching the window, curious to know what and faom whence this voice ceme, we were greeted by the rays of the rising sun gilding the summit of Mount Olympus and the beautiful shores o-t' the sea of Marmora, the point of Calcedon and the town Scutari. The voice which had called us from our pillow was the "call to prayer" by the mucyzin from the minaret of a neighboring mosque. We hastened on deck, and our eyes ranged with delight over the marble doioes of St. Sofia, the gilded pinnacles of the Seraglio glittering amid groves of pei'petual verdure, tiie long arcades of ancient aqueducts, the spiral minarets of A TllOUS/iXH MOSQUES, and the 1 beautiful Turkish marine villas, together with the numerous and splendid palaces oii the t>ul*-an which line the B<s>s- phorus on either sid'e as fa,r the eye can reach, reflecting their image in the mirror of thfl deep or creeping up the crested mountain and tracing their outline in the- expanse oS the blue and cloudless sky. Entranced' by this magnificent spectacle,, the majesty of nature crowned with all the grandeur ofi art, one can but feel as if all the faculties of thoir poul were insufficient fully to embrace its glories. You. hardly retain power to breathe, and almost apprehend that in doing so, it might dispel the of the purest blood. The imperial carriage was surrounded by a brilliant cortege consisting of the functionaries of the court, and his majesty was loudly and enthusiastically cheered by the troops and the pe_o- pie with the Turkish salute, "Padishakin takokyasha." Following this retinue were tlio many favorite saddle horses of the sultan which aie are never mounted by any one but himself.. Beautiful Arabian mares, richly caparisoned in _gold trappings, each lea by a groom in gorgeous Arabian costume bespanged in gold and silver. During the ceremony in the mos- glorious visiom leaving the whole form but a delusive dream.. "With eyes riveted, on the expanding splendors, ono begina-at lost to realize that this is Constantinople with all its grandeur spread before- him, and he comprehends that he is at la&tin the domain of the magnanimous, much-beloved,, and all powerful sovereign, his imperial' ma j,estyr Abdul Homidi Khan II." Our attention. was attracted directly over the-bow of our ship toward the'palace of Bolmabaglisnah. This splendid building with, its lofty marble columns- and flights of. stairs,, its- harmony with, the surrounding: scenery, its vast estent and its bright white color shining out in brilliant contrast with, the- deep blue of the, forms a most striking feature, causing a. momentary ccmGeii- tration ofi one-'s thoughts. 'Phis- was formerly ai favorite- residence of the- sultana, quo coffee, tea, SWEETMEATS, A,N09- OIGABETTES were offered us served in a most magnificent service of pure gold set with diamonds. After divine service the- sultan reviewed the troops from one of the windows of the mosque. The bearing of the-men was excellent, giving the greatest evidence of the wonderful military aptness- fo^ which the Turks are knoivn, and of the-most able training. At the issue- of the military parade the sultan entered' alone a. small open carriage and drove himself to the palace. The scene, all of the most gorgeous oriental splendor,, was very impressive. Above all one remains awe-struck at the presence of one man in whose hands lay the destiny of a whole nation. His majesty, who, with absolute power-,, great prudence and judgment,, bears the weight and care of the whole empire, clearly shows by his every expression. Ms earnest desire for the peace and- welfare of his beloved people. The ceremony ended,, we called on bis excellency, Marroyene Pasha, physician-in-chief to the sultan, who> occupied a fine residence near the palace.. The pasha gave us a warm> welcome, conversing freely with us- in. the best of English, and pressed us to remain to lunch, during wfiich he entertained usbj interesting accounts of his magnanimous sovereign, speaking of his great goodness and charity, and, mentioned particularly the wonderful interest he takes in every detail relating to his duties as a sovereign and protector of the people. Not a wise of poverty and misery is brought before the sultan but it receives immediate and snfficient aid from his own private purse. Marroyene Pasha also pointed out how the Turkish government resembles that of the- United Stafes from the point that a poor man stands equal chances with the rich one. It is merit wins here. He further expressed the great sympathy which his majesty the sultan bears toward our institutions and the American people. Mar- royene Pasha, who is a member of the New York Medical Academy, is an author of great merit, having published many scientific and descriptive works, some copies of which he presented us on. our departure. Although advanced in years, he is an active and hard: worker. control of the legislature' by a- majority of about 20 and will therefore- elect a United States senator to 1 succeed John C. Spooner.

Woman suffrage is defeated in South- Dakota, but all else is in doubt. In Michigan the R democrats elected Winans governor by 8,000 plurality and also the rest of the state ticket. The legislature is democratic. The congres.. sional delegation is about evenly divided. The democrats elect their state ticket in Indiana by 15,000, and gained nine congressmen. Pattison, democrat, is elected governor of Pennsyluania by 15,000, but the republicans got some of the other officers. Eighteen republican congressmen and ten democrats were chosen. This is a democratic gain of three. Markham, republican, is elected governor of California, and all other republican^* candidates on the state ticket are chosen. The republicans were victorious all around in Connecticut. • Democrats swept everything before them in West Virginia, Missouri, Virgina, Delaware, Florida, Mississippi, Texas and Wisconsin. Charles Ogclen, chairman of the Nebraska democratic state committee claims tho scroll of what was a much longer life was unrolled, even the smallest detail rushed back on his memory, he had the same fearlessness at the moment, but he felt all the horrors of the agony when the danger was past. A most interesting little book called "Admiral Beaufor's Experience of Drowning," boars testimony to this seemingly universal experience in sudden danger. "Thought succeeded thought," says the admiraj, "with a rapidly that not only is iiukscribablo, but probably inconceivable by any one who has not himself been in a similar situation—the event that had just taken place, tho effeot it would liavo on my family, and a thousand circumstances, jonnecteil with home, traveling backward in timo in retrograde succession."

She had resided the county for seventy but the present sultan- has never- 1 takea up his residence there,. We landed at Tbp-Hauch. Tie streets, so narrow near the quays, presented to us many novel sights.. The passing crowd seemed to have no* common sympathies, jostling each other in silence:;, women veiled in long caftans, men with gyRen turbans, Bostanjis, Jens and Armenians, encounter Greeks-,. Albanians, Franks and Tartars. Amid the amny novelties which- struck us on landing nothing surprised- us more than the silence that pervades everywhere. The only sounds one hears by day are bread, fruits,, sweetmeats, etc-., carried in large wooden trays on tho heads; of itinerant vendors^ and at intervals the barking of tloga disluibed by the foot of the pas- sengpr h lazy, ugly curs of a reddish brown color, with muzzles like that of a fox,, short ears, and famished look, who lie in the middle of tho streets and rise only when roused with blows. Adjoining Top- Lauch is the quarter called Galata, also bordering tho port. This is the principal seat of commerce. In 1216 a mercantile company was established here by the Genoese, which so rapidly increased in importance as to obtain from the Greek emperors the privilege to be governed by the republic, and of being fortified by walls and towers which remain today. The Genoese ivjxiui his indulgence with ingratitude, and the Latin colony terminated with the Greek empire. The quarter crowning 'mumuit of the promontory above is called Pera. Here is the headquarters of diplomacy, and is inhabited by Franks, the namo givon by Turks to all Europeans who tiro judged by tho laws of tho nation of the ambassador by whom they are protected. J'ho ambassador, the foreign ministers with the charged' affaires of the smaller powers, also the consuls, reside here IN TU13IH KIKE l'AJ,ACES in the winter, aud occupy splendid villas on the Bosphorus during the summer, in Pera sire situated the principal hotels.

These are for the purpose of encouraging the young doctors and/ students to advance in their work.

He also caused a scientific mission to be sent to the interior of the empire fg,r studying the treatment employed by the Bedoins, the result of winch was a universal benefit to> the medical world. In consequence of bis fruitful labors Marroyene PasLaiwillioccupy many a page in the history of the- glorious reign of the present sultan. With such a brilliant commencement DUO visit to this most interesting city promises much, ©in Saturday we took a turn in the- great bazar and afterward called at our legation, also at the consulate,, but foundi to omr regret that the Minister-Hiesch andi Mr. Sweeney the consul general, wore both awayor. leave of absenc ^making a European tour.
