Views ef the Man In the
A writer in the IJritUh Quarterly in
dulges in a glowing description of the
appearance of our earth to an inhabitant
"oi the moon; but according to the incul
cations of science, the "man in the moon"
is a creature of the imagination. We
cannot conceive bow it would be possi'
ble for a human being to exist without
air or water. He ssys: "At last; hew
ever, night sets in. Gradually it comes,
after the sun has gathered up his smiling
beams and gone to rest All at once we
arc plunged into comparative obscuritr,
for again there is no tribght to stay the
up into the sky; we behold a vast orb,
which pours down a milder and more
beneficent splendor than the great loid
of the system. It is such a moon as we
errestrials cannot boast, for it is not lees
than thirteen times as large and lumi
nous as our own. There it hangB in
the firmament without apparent change
of place. aB if 'fixed in its everlasting
seat.' But not without change of Sur
face. J For this great globe is a painted,
panorama, and turning round majesti
cally on its axis, presents oceans and
continents in grand succession. As
Europe and Africa, locking the Medi
terranean in their embrace, roll away to
right, the stormy Atlantic offers its
waters to view, and then the two Ameri
cas, with their huge forests and vast
prairies, pass under inspection. Then
the grand basin of the Pacific, lit up
with island fires, meets the gazer's eye,
and as this glides over the scene, the
eastern rim of Asia and the upper por
tion of Australia sail into sight. The
Indian ocean, and afterwards the Arabian
sea, spread themselves .out in fheir sub
dued splendor, .and thus in four-and-twenty
hours the great rotundity we
tread turns its pictured countenance to
the moon and grandly repays the listen
ing lunarians by repeating to the bast of
its ability the story of its biith. Nor is
the sky less marvelous in another respect
For the absence of any atmospheric
diffusion of light pcimits the constella
tions to shine out with a distinctness
which is never paralleled on earth.
They glitter like diamond points set in
a firmament of ebony. Stars and cius-
ters which we never see

with .the naked
eye flock into view and crowd the lunar
Parasites on Birds.
Many a perpn has wa ched with anxi
ety and care a pet canary, goldfinch or
oibfr tiry favorite, evidently in a state
of perturbation, plucking at himself
continuously, his feathers standing all
wrong, always fidgeting about, and in
evry way looking very seedy. In vain
is his food changed, and in vain is an
other saucer of clean water always kept
in his cage, and all that kindness can
suggest for the little prisoner done; but
still all is of no use, he id no better and
why? Because the cause of his wretch
edness has not been found out, fnd until
it is, other attempts are but vain. If the
owner of a pet in such difficulties will
take down the cage and cast his or her
eyes up to the roof thereof, there will
most likely be seen a mass ot stuff look
ing as much like red dust as anything;
and from thence comes the cause of the
poor bird's uneasiness. The red dust is
nothing more nor less than myriads of
parasites infesting the bird, and for
which water is no remedy. There is,
however, a remedy, and one easily pro
cured in a moment fire. By procuring
a lighted candle and holding it under
every particle at the top of the cage till
all chance of anything being left alive is
gone, the remedy is complete. The pet
will soon brighten up again a ter his
house warming, and will, in bis cheerful
and delightful way, thank his master or
mistress for this, though slight, to him
War And Daelisg.
What, in principle, is war? It is the
duel between nations, differing in no
respect from the duel between individu
als, except that the successful combat
ant is allowed to carry off as spoils the
effects of his vanquished antagonist.
It is an adjournment of great questions
of international right or courtesy,, from
the bar of temperate discussion and
peaceful arbitration before peers, to the
bar of chance or mere force. It is an
appeal from the reason and conscience
ef the parties themselves, from 1
views of their true interests, and from
the moral judgments of mankind to the
exploded tril by combat of the middle
ages. Alas! alas I that, eighteen ha
dred years after the coming of the Prince
of Peace, this relic of barbarism should
still be clung to by nations calling them
selves Christians, and GodS grant toe
penalty which they are now
and which has been treasuring itself ap
fdragee, may deter from following;
their dazzling bt daagerona- example.

The next city which I wish to call the
attention of my readers to is the city of
Bergen. In my description of this
place I shall continue, as I have done,
with jCbristiaala to girt aa outline of the
history of the city, as this was the irst
place Iftiowa in all Norway where the
Kings reigned at one time.
The ancient name of the f&y was
Bjoravin. or TWmmtnre between the
wegiaa King, Olaf Kyrre, sometime be
tween 1070 and 1075, on the' eastern side
of the Yaagen, where the landing plare
of Aalrekstad, a royal residence, had
previously been. By reason of an ex
cellent harbor, and a most favorable'sit
uation the place rapidly incressed in
Wealth and population. During the
civil mars it was the scene of msny
a bloody fight, and strange event Mag
nus Sigurdson was taken prisoner here
lnJ1135 by Ilarald Gille, who put out
his eyes. The following year Ilarald
himself was murdered at night by
Sigurd Slembe. In 1154 his son Sigurd
Mund was sluin by his brother Inge.
In the 3 ear 1223 a great parliamentary
meeting was held here, at which Haak
on Iltakenssn was proclaimed legitimate
heir to the throne of Norway in 1247.
He had himself crewncd 'with great
magnificence by Cardinal Wilbelm of
Sabina. He was buried in 1264 in Christ
Church. The prosperity of Pergen
culminated during the reign of Haaken
Haakensen. At that period she was the
most prosperous city in Norway, and it
is said the first commercial city of the
north up this time. She had held the
toyal residence for a space of one hun
dred years. Numerous ecclesiastical
and municipal buildings of great beauty
adorned the city, no fewer, for instance,
than 30. churches and religious houses;
the most notable was Christ Church, an
edifice of vast proportions, and the
church of the Apostles built on the
Holmen, now the site of the Fortress.
The finest of the lsy structures was King
Haaken's large and sumptuous Ban
queting HalL, erected about I960. Batl
few traces are now left of the old mag
nificence. Under, King Haaken's suc
cessors, and still more so dunsg the
Danish Union, strangers gradually be
gan to get influence in the town. In the
middle of the 15th century the Hause
atlc merchants had acquired a flrmJmfd
of the ship docks and chased the Mug
hen on to the opposite side, thsmrand
side as it is called, which now,hegaa to
be built upon, and conducted sMmselves
in a manner most harsh and orerbearing
to the people of the towaf. In 1455 they
even slew the captainlltader, Olaf Nil
son, and Bishop Thorlatf, and fired the
Munkeliv Monastery OlB 1665 an Eng
lish squadron consiatwg of 14 men-of-war,
made an attempt to seize a fleet of
Dutch merchantman tbst had sought
refuge in the harbor of th city, but
were effectually Mpulsed by the united
fire of the fortfmB and the Dutchmen's
ships. The meet important of later
events havo beta riots on various occa
sions, set on foot by the peasantry of the
surrounding tracts, the wars of the
"strile" as they aie called.
Many emiaeat men were born in Ber
gen, amongothers, Ludvig Holberg,
Professor Dahl, the pointer, and Ole
Bull, the world renowned violinist whom
all my readers bave heard of and proba
bly seen, (fft
The cisf, of Bergen carriedron a lively
trade Jams the earliest periods with for
eign Batioas, particularly with the Eng
lish and Scotch. In 1186 King Sverre
chased the Germans from town for sell
ing aairitaous llqaors. In 1317 a com
merpk treaty was concluded with Eng
lanlyuid in 1278 with the Hause.dc
townJL From tbst time forth the Ger

Bergen has direct steam communication
with all the cossal towns, with Copen
hagen and the Baltic ports, with Ham
burg, Rotterdam, Hull, Newcastle and
New York. During the last few yesrs,
the city hss required a fleet of magnifi
cent steamships, registering from 2,000
to 3,500 each. The art of ship-building
stands high in Bergen ; four large dock
yards are in constant activity.
The entrance to the town from the
fjord is exceedingly beautiful. We first
caught sight of the long roV of painted
warehouses in Sandvigen; not till the
vessel had passed Nordnsspynten did we
get a full view of the town, with the
mighty masses of Ulrikken rising in
the background. Arriving from the
north, three mountains west of Bergen
are the first objects that meet the eye
one of them the Lyderhorn, readily dis
tinguished by its form, which Is tbst of
two crumpled horns. Outside the har
bor, between the custom house and the
forrre&s of Bergenhus, there is a break
water, with a lighthouse, as a protection
to the shipping in northerly gales. The
harbor presents a scene of activity in the
summer months, especially when there
are frequently as many as 100 Nordlandtfl
fishing vessels in the port, which fsjga

Bergea is a city pf 33,009 inhabitants.
She has long been aa Episcopal residence.
Thexity is built oa both sides of the
Vasgen, towards the small and the large
Lungegaards water. In the latter it has
incressed vigorously in the past five
years. In the coarse of centuries the
city has suffered repeatedly from confla
grations, from 1198, when the "Bagler"
(a hostile party) set fire to the town, till
the year 1855. The most destructive ire
was in 1702, when almost the whole city
wss reduced to ashes. The new quarters
of the city are built in the modern style;
the st eets straight and ,widj. The an
cient part of the city bears, on the other
hand, a kind of old-fashioned stamp.
Most of the bouses are of wood, with
gables projecting into the street The
streets are narrow, tortuous and steep,
some of them precipitous even. Part of
of Bergen ia built upon slopes of the
Floifjeed, which gives to the city a most
picturesque appearance. As a protection
against fire, there are several squares, or
rather open plats of ground, the "Almen
dinger," as they are called. From
Skandsen, some distance up the moan
tain, we get an excellent view of the city.
Bergen is, on the whole, a lively city,
remarkable for the strongly marked
character of its inhabitants, and their I
peculiar costumes; but many of the
interesting reminiscences of Hauseatic
life are fast fading away. Many national
costames from the adjaceat fjords may
be daily seen in the streets of the city.
The rainy climate of Bergen is known
far and wide; the anneal rainfall is cal
culated at 70 inches..

, Mr. Baldwin looked at his niece with
glistening eyes. As she was entirely in
dependent of h:s control, rich by right
of an inheritance from her father,
though bis own companion for nine
years, this marked defiance of his wfehss
touched him deeply. He wss a self
made man, lacking refinement, not well
educated, but with a money making
-capacity-, and he had the too common
contempt for . young men who, like
Walter Grantley, college graduates, aad
paid attention to dress, to looks, to the
niceties of etiquette and conversation.
"You knowf Nell, he said, after a mo

man, with kindly impulses, friends with
the world, proud of the prosperity that
was the work of his owa hands, but he
became very grave and quiet, even sad,
absorbed in papers, and evidently deeply

The knowledge came one evening
when Walter Grantley was making a
call. True to his promise, Uncie Charles
was trying to be friends with the yoang
man, aad that he was succeeding was
proved by his speaking in his presence.
"Bd news, Nell," he said besvi'y. "I

Neb's anas were around his neck
while his hand wasiakea ia a cordial

Nell's place ia the sick room, and gave
her some hours of sorely needed rest,

after the evening when he opeaed his

Baldwin seemed to remeatber his busi
