A -traveling correspondent - of tlie Kew York Post, writing from of Cape Clear, Ireland, thus gives Jiis impres sions of crossing the ocean: i ' .. We i had the usual Quantity of sea sickness; the same repeated setting of tables, withplates and victuals upon it, but; with few eaters; the same set of mci,:who eternally drink;" again set, vrho are ever gambling; another, for ever reading; another, who never move out of their births; and another, who seem never to go to bed. We had men always pleased, and again those that were never pleased; we had those who had seen all countries for in stance, Bayard Taylor; arid again, those who were for the first time abroad; we .had, in short, a motley group,of all . ..iionalitics, with varied . religions, politics, morals, ages, sentiments, feel ings, country language, arid condition. You read in the papers of "the splendid tables: they, set on ocean steamers." Do not believe it, kind reader. The tables and the fastenings are well enough, so are the plates, but the cooking is of the grossest charac ter -rich in : grease and . apices, but poor, very poor eating to a stomach just recovering from seasickness. The fresh meats and poultry though why call them fresh I know not are picked tightly in ice, and thereby downright deadened in all that makes them fit for life. After the steamer is out a week they are tainted, and hams are the only reliable resource, and a very good re source they are. Folks wonder at being sicker on steamers than on packet ships. r Pass the meat-house and your nose will explain the cause. Packets used to carry live stock, and tneir, iresn meats were iresn their poultry and pigs were good. , ' ' Another illusion is ,"the comforta ble state-rooms and cabins."- What is there comfortable about them?. They are narrow, not over clean, and one of the two occupants must always rise late and descend early at the risk of lite and limb. ('An experienced surgeon always on board. bo reads tho advertisement, and so believed an elderly Connecti cut lady. The had looked for him, and mistaken several doctor-like gentlemen for him. The, - at last, to make per fectly sure, applied to that "useful gentleman, always present on steam ers, by land and sea, who knows every thing, who has been along before, who talks with the omcers on navigation and whom every body intuitively con sults for information, and he pointed out to her, as the doctor, a young gen tleman, just from college whom she had long observed as a most expert shufH ebqard player, and 'whom she had marked out as a nice specimen of a "middy," but whose surgical and med ical experience was happily not need ed, seasickness excepted, and for that nobody takes a doctor, bhe eyed the doctor well, and came to the conclu sion that Seidlitz Powders, Congress, arid Soda Water, were the physicians whose experience were the best. "Attentive ivaiiers" Well, they are so just now: for in a few hours they expect the passenger s hand , to ap proach theirs, and a gold piece to slip from one to the other. But at the commencement of . the voyage, unless you fee like a prince, they do not at tend to you. I saw one attentive .9 - waiter, however,for he regularly attend ed to slipping nice bits from the kitchen to certain quarters, whence they went into general consumption, saving only the passengers. I watched the fellow, and. forgot my seasickness over his pilfering abilities, for I was glad to have found the solution of a question asked by a fellow passenger: "What becomes of victuals prepared 2nd not eaten by the passengers: He was much pleased to learn "that they were not spoiled. The Union having Committee -I do riot mean to say that we had actually members of that committte on board but it is a fact that we had soiae men who were afraid the Union would not last till they got back. I endeavored to reason it out of them, but failed and they were determined to fill every .hnghshman and other . foreigner on board with food for running down the Union. Now this is decidedly bad policy, fcuca fears make seasickness worse, and prolong it, for they add to that swimming sensation of the head which makes men and women afraid to go on deck and look about them. In fact, Union saving is a sort . of sea sickness, which those get who are no used to the motion of the vessel o state as it is moved by the frefr wincta upon the billows of a free popular movement. An old. gentleman re marked, "That Tail this hobbling and he emphasized tie word about the dissolution of the'Union' was too stale or him.? ' . -1 'r ., ' "Why, sir! . babbling ,geese saved Rome," .said, a Uiion-saver. "That s no reason why every goose should trouble itself a"bout saving the Union!" - was thev cxirt." reply, - which cured one . babbling" Uriionrsaver, for he voyage, at leait. r 5; Ucean steamers c0mpared.--B.wm2 crossed in all the several isteariier lines, I feel myself justified,. in forrning and giving a correct opinion." The' Collins me'is certainly the fastest,- and the most commodious for passengers in its arrangements. , . In machinery the unardcrs are the strongest and most reliable, and I regard them as safer in every respect in which strength is con cerned. There is a sort of "English" preponderance in the Cunard steamers, which docs not let an American feel at home in them. There is more hard eating and drinking on these ships han I ever witnessed before. - - . - The Bremen line has, or. had, all the aults of the other, steamers, but their first cabin- and saloon arrangements are certainly superior to all. For amines, the Bremen line possesses . w : . i advantages which none of the others can equal. " Would that more attention were paid in them to cleanliness! The Bremen lines keep the poorest order, he Uunarders the best; and let me add, hat. all these steamer lines fail in guarding properly against accidents by lire. 1 do not mean the boiler, machine and engine-room by this, but rather the pantry and the state-rooms, etc. v . Their eating arrangements are uni versallybad. TJiey have but one good quality if it be a good quality pro fusion without taste. Tho cooking is steam-cooking, which I 'can' not de scribe, except by .comparing it to the worst specimens of Lnglish hotel cock mg. ..: t CORONATION - CI ALEXANDER. The following pnragraph, descrip- ive of the actual criFm rig. is from the letter of the correspondent' of. the Daily News; dated Moscow, Sept. 8. The emperor and empress being seated in the ancient throne of the czars in the Church of the Assumption, the regalia was properly arranged, and another burst 01 devout harmony came from the invisible ctoir. The Metrop olitan then presented a profession of faith, which his majesty. must read, and which he did read on this occasion with due emphasis ind discretion. The documents, whhh was exceeding ly lengthy, took upwards of ten min utcs in the reading during which pro found silence reignel in the church. Immediately after, the emperor was invested with the -state mantle, and here followed the most interesting feature in the uay s . Ttroceedinprs. Taking the crown, sn immense one blazing all over with- diamonds up with his two hands, he placed it on his head, thereby intimating that from no earthly power, priestly or law, did he receivo sovereignty. Then making a sign to the empress, who knelt submis sive before him on a golden cushion, he just touched her forehead, with it, and immediately replaced it on his own head. This was a moment of intense interest. 1 The empress mother, who had borne up with immense forti tude, burst into tears; and , the whole of the congregation, as they fell on their knees in honor of the rite, sobbed and cried like children. What a history did not those 'tears of- the empress mother recall? ; . " ' More than a- quarter of a century before she had received a similar honor from the greatest sovereign of his time; had long after shared his thoughts, his joys, and his' sorrows; and' now' she stood alone the great man naa passed away, and to" another hand was about to be confided the powerful scepter which, it had been so long her happi ness to share in wielding. This was the culminating point of the ceremo nial.' "Then came the anointing: the administration of the sacrament to the Emperor in both forms, the Empress in one; the mass, and other ceremo nials purely religious; and finally, the congratulations, which the Emperor received with great dignity and sclf posssscssibn. At the same time his countenance wore a care-worn and saddened look, and he seemed like one who felt oppressed with the sense of an aWIUl responsiuiinj. j.u came me moment for which 70,000 people out side had been waiting with exemplary patience. A gorgeous procession issued from the church door. , In front was a splendid canopy, under which walked the emperor, with the imperial mantle. There were the standard, the. seal, and the sword of the empire, the great functionaries at a respectful distance behind, and the dismounted guarded a cheval in their golden cuirosses, lining tho way. k rom : a hundred bands pealed out at once the national ari'them -".God save the Czar," and the shouts o the people -formed a tremendous accompaniment to the music. The countenance of his majesty was most solemn: he bowed repeatedly but never smiled, and the cheers seemed to die away for the want of the imperial sympathy. It was a striking onential spectacle the pargoda-like .". canopy, the great Czar with his immense crown of diamonds blazing in the sun, the many oriental costumes, and the beard ed raujiks, all formed a picture which I shall not soon forgot!.-. " ' " ' BENJAMIN FRANKLIN. : : If ever ai. city had reason to erect a statue, Boston is justifiedin the present homage to Franklin. To him we owe more of what we value in life than to any other one man who ever lived. In any early age of the world he would have been worshipped as- a demigod some Prometheus ' or Hercules. .' He has given this age its imnr'ess. its image, and superscription. He melted down the old theological bigotry, saved the humane principles at. the; bottom of it, inspired strong, practical com mon sense, a thirst for knowledge, an ambition to subdue, a love of labor, order, equality, justice. Whether he moulded candles or constitutions, he did it earnestly and with his whole mind arid soul. When he set type, or inked a form, he did it with a sublime sense of the results, and the working of brains always dignified the working of his hands. Hence, instead of allow ing the physical to draJiim down to the reign, of slavery, he made it the staging . by which the spirit mounted to freedom and power. By ruhn a w s 1 it himselt, he camo to rule kings more than that, to extort the secrets of nature and shape the, destinies of alU future generations. He was mechanic, terrestrid and celestial, and through him; more than any other one mechauic, it has come to pass, that all men in this age, except, a few under the, shadow ot the old remants 01 bar barism, honor mechanical skill and in ventive power as skin divinity, and ex alted far above all tho glories of idle ness. - This is the native city of the great mechanic, the printer who impressed upon the future of his country his own genius and glorious "success." It was : Tho Boston Boy who tamed that fastest horse, Since ridden by onr Boston mail-boy Morse, And ofk in less than no time, for a wonder, " Which kicks tho space beneath, his feet to thunder, ' And, taught by Channing, quenches on cur roofs, The very fire struck from his dazzling hoofs, and surely he ought to stand in the very heart of Boston for an everlasting pride, joy, and profit. No man can remember Franklin without bettering first his own worldly estate, and then I that of all others around him, who do not forbid themselves to be bettered. Such' is the gospel according to Frank lin. . This age is famous for mechanical improvemenents, wealth, temperance and anti-slavery. . Of all these Frank lin was the father. All these things are as good now as when the great practical philosopher first gave them the mighty impulse of his genius and consecrated them to eternal success. His native city, in erecting his statue only does what should long ago have been done acknowledges their good ness and commends them to posterity. Boston Ohronicle. -.., HOW WOLVES CAJOLE AND CAPTURE WILD . ' ' HORSES. - ' Wherever several of the larger wolves associate together for mischief, there are always a numerous tram orsmaller ones to follow in -the rear and act as auxiliaries in the work of destruction. Two large wolves are sufficient to des troy the most powerful horse and sel- dom more than two begin the assault, - ' . -m . although there ; may be a score in the gang. It is no less curious than amus in to witness this ingenious mode of attack. If there is no snow, or but little on the ground, two wolves ap proach in the most playful and cares sing manner, lying, rolling and frcsk inf about until the too. credulous and unsuspecting victim i3 completely put 03 his guaru uy curiusiij auu kuuiu arity. -During this time, the gang, squat tin" on their hind quarters, look on at a distance. After soms time spent m this way, the two assailants separate, when one approaches the horse's head, and the other his tail, with a shyness neculiar to themselves. , At this stage of the attack, their frolicsome ap proaches become very interesting it is in right good earnest; the lormer is a mere decoy, the latter is the real assailant, and keep3 his eyes . steadily fixed on the ham-strings or flank of the horse. The critical moment is then watched and the attack is simultaneous; both wolves spring Li their victim at the same instant one at the . throat, the other to the flank and if success ful, as they generally are, the hind one never lets go his hold till the horse is completely disabled. '. Instead of springing forward or kicking to disengage himself, the horse turn3. round and round without at tempting a defence. The wolf before then springs behind to assist the other. The sinews are cut, and m half the tirne I havcL been describing it, !the horse is on his side; his struggles are fruitless the victory, is won. At this siguar the lookers-on close mrwith; a gallop; but the small fry of followers keep a respectable distance; until their superiers are gorged; and then they take their turn unmolested. ' THE INOjrisrTIYE YAN2ZS. ' The following ,'new edition with im provements, of an-old anecdote, is exceedingly rich; - A gentleman riding m an Eastern railroad car, which was rather scarcely supplied with passengers, observed in a seat before him a lean, slab-sided Yankee; . every feature of his face seemed to ask a question, and a little circumstance soon proved, that he possessed a most 'inquiring mind Be fore him, occupying the entire seat, sat a lady dressed in deep black, and, after shifting his position several times, and manoeuvring to get an opportunity to look into her face, he at length caught her eye. " "In affliction?" "Yes, sir," responded the lady, "Pa-rant? father or mother?" "No, sir." ' " "Child, perhaps? boy or girl?'f "No, - sir, not a child I have no children." "Husband, then, I expect?"; "Yes." was the curt answer. "Hum cholery? a tradm man, mabe?" . "My husband was a sea-farjng man the captain of a ; vessel; he didn t 'die of cholera; he was drowned." "Oh! drowued, eh?" pursued the in quisitor, -hesitating for a brief instant. "Save his chistr . . "Yes, the vessel was saved, and my husband's effects," said the widow. "TFas.they? asked the iankee,his eyes brightening up. . , , r "Fious man: "He was a member of the Methodist Church." The, next question was a little de layed but it came. - ."Don't you think you have great cause to be thankful that he was a pious man and saved his chist?" r "I do," said the widow abruptly, and turned her head to Mook out of the window. , . .The, indefatigable 'pump' . changed his position, held the widow by his glittering eye once more and pro pounded one more query, in a little lower tone, with his head lightly, in clined forward,' over the back of the seat, "Was you calculatin' to get married again?" . - ; "Sir," said the widow indignantly, "yor. are impertinent!" , And took another, sea ton the other side of the car. "'Pears to be a little huffy r. said the ineffable bore, turning to our narrator behind him; "she needn't be mad; 1 didn't want to hurt her feelings. What id they make you pay for that umbrel you've got in your hand? It's a real pooty one. . r JZRIAL NAVIGATION. ' With a view of demonstrating the possibility and feasibility of man navi gating the air by flying, Mr. S. S, Richardson, of this city, who has de voted two ycar3 to the study and the expenditure of many thousand dollars, has built a machine which ho contends with satisfactorily demonstrate this vexed question. On a frame work of bamboo rods, set transversely, con sisting of five combinations, four rods in each, forming an x, and covering a space of twenty-four feet by six, he has laid an upper and lower, covering of canvass in two rowsthe upper rows covering the entire frame, the lower being in two part3, 0 feet by 6. These" r0W3 of canvass aro stiffened with small pieces of bamboo, and are the only portions which resist the air, being intended to skim 'the air. The propelling power lays in two rows of gulls wings, set on the front and rear six set in front and rear; f In the front frames there are ten sets of wings, and on the rear eight. These wings work perpendicularly, describing the half of a circle, and are so aSxcd as to work as free from the bamboo sticks as they would on the bird. The motive power is given these wings by the operator, is slung to the centre supports, and by means of working his hands and fe et in proper pedals, gives the wings mo tion ion.. To go directly forward ail the ! vings are m.use; to turn or steer, the; right or left motive power ceases. Thi motive power is conducted to the, wing' by -means of bright wires .running ' through brass pulley3 on the er(d of" . each transverse section. Each .wing works on a bamboo rod. being connect- . ed in sets by wires; the sets vcrklng by means of two . small tnar.gular' braces, top and bottom, revolving on light hinges' , . ; , It is not onr purpose to question the' practicability of this" maehine, fihich ;' the inventor '. claims ' is destined to. demonstrate the texed problem of' serial navigation, until we can sec it in'" operation in the atmosphere. ' . The in- .' veritor has spent two ycar3 and fiome j" . 2,000 in completing the . pri'?cn't. machine, the building of which alone - .; occupied five moaths, and he an'Icast. deserves credit fc-r his perseverance.- Asa specimen of ingenious .construe . . tiori it is worthy of a visit. .

CRAWN IN ' A LOTTERY, " Nearly a year ago- a young lidy-'inf: France, named Sophe an Behe, Con- ceived the singular idea of disposing of herself in marriage byvmcatj3 of a-' lottery. She was thirty years old, tired of a life of celibacy, and in'dcs-; pair at hot finding a husband with ' ' enough means at his command to .suit" ' her views. She announced, therefor?, that her handsome but'rathcr inatura . person should be disposed of. on .'tho ' following terms: She created a lottcrv with five hundred shares ofi a thousand francs each - Subscribers were to . prescnt'thcmselvci in person, ih order that she might decide on their, accept- ability as husbands. The subscriptions, wero placed in the hands of a notary as fa3t as made, and tho 'draw.bg -was. not to tako place till all the : snares . were taken, that is, when the sum of : half a million of francs were com plete - '.'".. Isot quite a year elapsed before tho - shares were all taken. The drawing;' recently took placo in the office cf tha. notary who held the subscriptions and. me money, m tnc presence 01 two. magistrates. A thsusand' numbers . were placed in an urn, the subscribers being numbered in ordera3 their names were inscribed. The urn was thorougly shaken up, a blind hand was thrust jn-" and 490 withdrawn. : The happy in. dividual who subscribed was a Tunisian General who had already ocr ' cupicd the public attention .by his oriental caprices.
