As We sailed Up tne sea of Marmora we Watched anxiously for the first sight of the cities of Constantinople, hoping to arrive before sunset, but it was not until the Just shades of the soft oriental twilight had faded away that we caught our first glimpse of its lights, at first agglomerated in a grand contused mass, which seemed, aa we advanced, by degrees to unfold, to disengage itself, the lights growing into various groups divided by side chasms, until at last the cluster thus far distinctly connected became transformed as if by magic, showing how Constantinople i's made up of various distinct cities, each individually of prodigious extent. As we continued to sail we found ourselves gradually becoming surrounded by this whole, and we realized that this vast circuit was divided by a wide ureu ot that sea whose wi-i ers reflected the many colored lights, lending a fairy-like effect, and we understood that we were sailing in the midst of .a creat 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 rapidity over the smooth surface of the water, carrying some late returning Mussulman to bis home across the Bosphorus. We retired with thoughts full of scenes from the "Arabain Nights," making sleep an impossibility. Not a sound was to be heard other than at intervals the howling n£ ten thousanl dogs re-echoing over the calm waters and the doleful sounds 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 f/om whence this voice cEine, wo were greeted by the rays of the rising sun gilding the summit of Mount Olympus ant) the beautiful shores of 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 domes of St. Sofia, the gilded pinnacles of the Seraglio glittering amid groves of pei'petual verdure, tiie 1'ong arcades of ancieal aqueducts, the spiral minarets of ing the name of his YC Pasha, to whom We had the whohad'boen oh ton lookout fof Mt at- rivli. Suj prised at this unexpected mark of attention ofc th« p« t of <»e whom we had never had the pleasure of meeting, #e hastened with our toilet and descended to meet a very cordial welcome to Constantinople from one of his majesty 8 most faithful subjects. The pasha most graciously told m that he Was at our disposal for the day, It being Friday, the Turkish Sunday, he proposed our jfmng'to the Selamlik, which we Were obliged to ouke haste about, afl the troops Werft at that moment passing under our Win' doWs on their wa? to the palace. The Selamlik is the name of the ceremoney when the sultaa proceeds in gorgeous itate to the mosque to pray, on Friday, Opposite the mosque to which his majesty repairs is a kiosk reserved for visitors. Through the kindness of the paiha we ivere invited to take places here where we obtained a splendid view. One by one ,he different battalions of troops began to arrive, with bands playing and colors flying, to take up their position along the way leading from the palace to the mosque all the approaches to which were lined with troops, The open space in front of the mosque was filled with the pashas, and near the entrance stood the ministers of statp, all in full uniform, Closed car- riaees jjarrived containing the sultan's mothar, his wives, and some of the ladies of the harem, these were stationed near the door by which his majesty enters. 1'he Merezzin from the mineret chants the call to prayer as the sultan issuse from the palace. The various military bands began playing the flamidu _march, and the arrival of his imperial majesty was heralded by the blast of a thousand bugles. The sultan arrived in an open carriage, in black and gold, drawn by Arabian horses of the purest blood. The imperial car- day's JBteettofi. AehietreVMt&Mesifl&iite, Where.

Following this retinue were tbo 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 led by a groom in gorgeous Arabian costume bespanged in gold and silver. During the ceremony in the mosque coffee, tea, SWEETMEATS, AJSJ9' CIGARETTES were offered us served in a most magnificent service of pure gold set with diamonds. After divine service the- suJtan reviewed the troops from one of the windows of the mosque. The bearing of th& men was excellent, giving the greatest evidence of the wonderful military aptness for- which the Turks are kno tf n, and of thV most able training. At the issue- of the military parade the sultan entered' albne 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 All the KventH of a Lifetime Repeated In the limlii nt Hunting 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 tho 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 clown before life was extinct, the author says: He (;Lord Ponsonby) procesded 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 ail the events of his past life passed through his mind.

She afterwards made tin unsuccessful attempt ut suicide. life to tho date had not been a very eventful one,, being on|y 19 years of age, but every pust sei.sation was renewed in all its freshness. It is also remarkable that he did no ut the time experience any sensation of fear, while he added, his was an essential iibrvous temperament. This remarkable mental power of calling up the past in moments of suspended animation 1 have heard frequently mentioned. One was the cam of Count Zichy, in the revolution of 184b in Vienna, tie was caught by the savage mob, hung like Lord PpnsonOy in the middle of the street, when his own regiment of dragoons charged down and cut the cords as he 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. He describes exactly the same sensations as Lord Fonsonby: the scroll of whal, 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 Beaut'or's Experience of Drowning," bears testimony to this seemingly universal experience in sudden danger. "Thought succeeded thought," says the admiraj, "with a, rapidty that not only is indtscribable, but probably inconceivable by any one who has not himself been in a similar situation—the event that had just tnken place, tho eft'oct it would have on my family, and a thousand circumstances, connected with home, traveling backward ,n time in retrograde succession." All :his proves that duration of lifo does not lepciul on hours, but on tho number of .mpressions con-eyed to the brain. A THOU8AYXD MOSQWES, and the- beautiful Turkish marine villas, together with the numerous and splendid palaces of the sultan which line the Bos- phorus on either sid'e sis fa,r the eye can reach, reflecting their image in tbe mirror of the deep or creeping up the crested mountain and tracing their outline in the- expanse of the blue and cloudless sky. Entranced by this magnificent spectacle,, the majesty of: nature crowned with all the grandeur ofi ant, one can but feel as if all Wit) faculties of their soul were insufficient fully to embrace its glories. You. hardly retain power to breathe, and almost apprehend that in doing so, it might dispel the glorious vision,leaving the whole form; but a delusive dream-. "With eyes riveted on the expanding splendors, onu begins-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, majesty Abdul Hoinid, Khan II." Our attention was attracted directly ovfr the-bow ofi our ship toward the-palace of Eblmabaghshefu This splendid building with, its lofty marble columns-and flights of. stairs, its- harmony with, the surrounding:scenery, its vast extent and its bright white color shining out in brilliant contrast with, the deep blue of the Bosphorus, forms a most striking feature, causing a. momentary comcea- tration ofi one's thoughts. This- was formerly at favorite' residence ofi the' sultams, but the present sultan' has never taken, up his residence there.. We landed at Tbp-lauch. Tiie 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 groen turbans, Bostanjis, Jens and Armenians, encounter Greeks-,. Albanians, Franks and Tartars. Amid the many novelties which struck us on landing nothing surprised us more than the silence that pervades every where. The only sounds one hears by day are bread, fruits,, sweetmeats, ete., carried in large wooden trays on the heads; of itinerant vendors, and at intervals the barking of clogs distuibed by the foot of the passenger, 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 the street* and r.iso only when roused with blows. Adjoining Top- Lauch is the quarter called Galata, also bordering the port. This is the principal seat of commerce. In 1216 a mercantile Now York SHU.

Tho Genoese rep.ikl his indulgence with ingratitude, and the Latin colony terminated with the Greek empire. The quarter crowning' summit of the promontory above is called Pera. Here is the headquarters of diplomacy, and is inhabited by Franks, tho name given by Turks to all Europeans who are judged by tho laws of tho nation of the ambassador by whom they are protected, i'he ambassador, the foreign ministers) with the charged' affaires of the smaller powers, also the consuls, reside here IN TI1EIH VINE I'ALACES in the winter, and occupy splendid villas on the Bosphorus during the summer. In Pera are situated the principal hotels. We repaired at once to apartments, and had scarcely taken a glimpse of the extensive view commanded from our windows over the Stainboul (the ancient Byzantium) and the Golden Horn, where the immense naval ships of the Sultan are lying at b»fore a card wo* handed us bear- prudence and judgment,, bears the weight and care of the whole empire,, clearly shows by his every expression, his earnest desire ior the peace and welfare of his beloved people. The ceremony ended,, we called on bis excellency, Marroyene Pasha, physician-in-chief to the sultanj who, occupied a fine residence near the palace.. Tbe pasha g-nye us a warm, welcome,, conversing freely with us- in. the best of English, and pressed us to remain, to lunch, during wEich he entertained us bj 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 tho people. Not a case of poverty and misery is brought before the sultan but it receives immediate and sufficient aid from his own private purse. Marroyene Pasha also pointed out how the Turkish government resembles that of the United States 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 inr stitutions 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 yeaxsy he is an active and hardi worker. His weekly lectures in the hospital are largely attended. These are for tbe purpose of encouraging the young doctors andi students to advance in their work. H& has. founded a journal published in French and Turkish entitled the Gazette des, Eospit- nuz, the doctors of the. empire gaining thereby great profit. He aleo caused a scientific mission to be sent to the interior of the empire f<jr studying the treatment employed by the Bedoins, the result of which was a universal benefit to, the medical world. In consequence of his fruitful labors Marroyene Pashaiwillloccupy many a page in the history of the' glorious reign of the present sulta^. with such a brilliant commencement DUO visit to this most interesting city promises much.. On Saturday we took a turn in the' great bazar and afterward called at our legation, also at the consulate,, but found to omr regret that the Minister Hiesch andiMr. Sweeney, the consul geneual, wore bothawayon leave of absenc ^making a European, tour. During the absense-of the minister, tbe affairs ot tho legislation ore in the hands of Mr. Mae- Nutt, the- first secretary whose duties oblige hiiM to assume the post of charge 'd Affairs. He received us cordially, kindly offering to extend any courtesy in his power. We understand our present consul genera,! who has resided here about a year has become exceedingly popular among- the American colony, as well as in diplomatic circles. In the absence of Mi- Sweeney the consulate is conduced by Mr Azorirn, Aice consul, whose manner in proceeding with the affairs fully justifies the wjidoia of those who appointed him to this ofhce.
