GRACE GREENWOOD ' has been in-the city-several weeks,-but returned to Washington the other day, and will start in a short time for Colorado. She has a cottage nearly completed at Colorado Springs, near rer, whore she intends spending ’the summer. Colorado is the only spot shehas yet found whore she has succeeded in escaping the tyrant that pursues her every season so mercilessly, and, during' the autumn, fastens with such relentless . grip upon - her throat-and lungs that rHa suifers the .most in* tolerable agony;’ Mid she says tnat, in the grand eur of its scenery, the splendor of its skies, and the exhilarating purity and dryness of its atmos phere, ehe obtains a foretaste of Heaven. While, she was here, she lectured twice and gave * a reading,meeting on each occasion, with a warm reception. ,Her delivery is about equal to that of the average lecturer; but-thero are more beautiful writing, more profound thought, and more genuine'wit in one of her lectures than m the combined productions of any dozen of the men or women that rank among the foremost of the profession. In her “readings” she is altogether inimitable. She reads in costume, and is thoroughly mistress of the situation. Her delineations of the various characters are so per fectly natural, that she carries her entire audi ence with her, moving them at one moment to tears, and the next moment convulsing them with laughter. • In addition to being one of the wittiest women and sprightliest newspaper-cor respondents in America, Grace Greenwood is entitled to a high position as a lecturer, and poa r cesses such rare anility as a reader of the comio end pathetic, that, if she would turn her entire attention in that direction, she would, in a short time, find her abundant reward in a rich harvest of honor and profit.

New Yoke, May 81.—A St. Petersburg letter written under date of the Bth lust, sends the following sketch of Ike sickness,'death, and fnneral services over the remains of the late United States Minister to the Court of the Czar. The diplomatic career of Got. Orr came to a painful end before it was fairly begun. : It is not quite two months since he arrived in St. Peters burg and presented his credentials to the 1 Em peror. He was suffering at the time from a se vere cold contracted during the Atlantic passage, and about a week after the formal Install lation in his new - office he was forced to take ■to his •' bod. From that day ho did not leave his apartments. Cold settled on his lungs, nnd afterwards passed to his liver, eo that his blood became eerionsly affected. No serious result ..was apprehended, however, and, on Friday, four days before he died, bis friends thought he was slowly yet steadily improving, but on Monday last there was a change, and be died qnite suddenly at 2 o’clock. The funeral services were celebrated to-day in the chapel; of the English-American Society. There was no discourse,, and the pastor simply read the im pressive ritual of the Church of England, and closed with a short prayer. The gloomy , little chapel was by no moans fall.' There wore some dozen ladies, English and American, half-a-dozen American gentlemen in black, and thirty or forty diplomats in their brilliant, yet sombre, Court costumes. The Austrian Ambas sador was there, also the Ministers of Brazil,' Italy, Greece, and the attaches. .of other lega tions, as well as of the Foreign Office. Mr. J -8. Orr, Jr., the solitary family mourner, stood side by side with Gen. Pomutz, the Consul, who; wore the familiar uniform of a Brigadier-General of the American army. The scene waa indescrib ably sad. ' After the Sector had finished the service, the diplomatists walked aronnd the coffin and drop ped each npon it a little sand. The civilians present did the same,'and as the mellow Busman sun broke, through the stained windows of the humble church, the cortege took up its march and passed mournfully away. The few Americana in St. Petersburg—there are not above half-a-dozen families—were very attentive to the unfortunate •Minister, and since his death have taken entire charge of the fnneral arrangements: The Eng lish friends of the Legation have also been very kind, and the sad drcnrhatances surrounding the case have awakened a general sympathy in the diplomatic corps.

The stock speculation waa very dull at the opening and close, bat between the hours of 12 and 1, the dealings were rather more ani mated. ' ' The fluctuations outside of Pacific Mail were only %to % per cent up to midday, but after that time a general advance of to 1 percent took place. This, however, was par tially.lost, but at the close prices advanced again to nearly the beet figures of the day. No. regu lar call took place this afternoon, out of-respect to the memory of Mr. E. D. Stanton, a member of the Board, and this only added to the gener ally dull condition of affairs. GOLD was lower in the morning, but daring tho after noon became firmer, and recovered at the close. The early decline was due to the fact that the hankers, presenting 5-20 bonds for redemption under the last call, have received checks dated to-day, instead of Monday. The Syndicate esti mates that only 85,000,000 gold will be paid out In settlement of $50,000,000 of 5-20 bonds, called in for Jane 1. To-day the Assistant Treas urer at this port paid out $3,900,000 in. gold on this account. The National Banks of the United States subscribed for. $8,000,000 of new fives, payable in gold, and. the Syndicate had orders to ouy gold therefor, but for some time past they have been picking np called bonds, which answer the same purpose for the Government, and facilitate the funding operation. Many of the operators are tired of inaction on the part of Gould, but the indica tions are that early next week there will be activi ty enough in this market; to suit, the most"cap tions. - ntpoirrs.

The Republican,’ "the Administration organ in this city, sustains the delegates who oppose Pool,.andhas been,provoked into expos ing party secrets,’from which it is learned that Pool approached it after his defeat for re-elec tion as Senator to obtain Its aid in'snppprt of. bis claims for a Cabinet position.* The 'Repub lican refused to accede to this modest: request, whereupon Pool for revenge used his influence to defeat the bill to give the printing of the de bates'of Congress to that paper." The Republi can farther charges that Pool’s . .mismanage ment nearly lost North Carolina to the tration in last summer's • campaign, and insinu ates that the campaign funds intended for gen eral nso were. diverted by Pool and his friends for the purpose of seeming the' election of a Legislature pledged to his re-election, to the Senate.

This per sonal knowledge has given to the~ selections transcribed from other writers a. discriminating choice and adjustment, so that the work has freshness, and unity that do not belong to' • mere compfl&kions, and an animation that' con veys itself the reader, Tho first five chapters are devoted to the ge ography and history of the Kingdom of . Siam,:, "and a record of its interoourse with other coun tries. The history includes ihe romantlb biog raphy of Constantine Fhaulcon, known aa M, Constance, a native of Greece, who, having been taken intoYavor by the Court- of- Siam for the wonderful manner in which he supplanted the Moors in ordering royal entertainments; formed, the ambitious design of converting the country from Buddhism' to the Catholic faith. Louis XIV., of Franco, granted him the assistance of a .hand of Jesuits and French soldiers. But. the jealousy of native Princes frustrated the hold plan ; and a career of splendor which has left, its trace in the ruins of palaces, ended in torture and cha-ina- Madame Constance, too, suf ered indignities with the behavior of a martyr. Under the sentence of; death, Con stance was at last mounted upon an elephant, and taken to the forest of Thafe Phutson; as if, says the pious biographer of his time,- who exalts the character of Phaulcon to that of a 44 sublime 'genius," ihe tyrant who ordered his execution “ had chosen the horrors of solitude to bury in oblivion an unjust and cruel deed." The seat of government of the present dynasty of Siam, Bangkok, on the River Meinam, 44 is not far from 60 miles nearer to the mouth of the .river than Agathia, the former capital j and the geographical change was ; significant of an ad vance towardsthe nations of* the world and of more intimate relations of commerce and friendship with them.” The approach to this singular city, which has been called u Venice of the East,” is described by t>acon as an" exemplification of all the tropical luxuriance, and languor, and splendor,- that impressed our imagination in Tennyson’s poem of ■ “The Lotus-Eaters.” His own de scription is almost a poem. As it extends oyer several pages, we quote only the passages which mark exceptional characteristics p the wonderfuT fire-flies of the Meinam, and the temple-hells of Bangkok; • •The night awn© down upon me* [he* writ©s]_.with. startling suddenness—for there in no twilight within the courts of the sun. By the time the tide had risen,'* tho.night bad fallen thick and dark,. and" the -dense shade of the Jungle, through which the canal led us, : made it yet thicker and more ’dark. ’ Great fezn-leavce, 10 or 15 feet Jn height, grew dense on either side, and, ,ffip.jnriy-eitnnftt .mat, over nur^heads^-Above,them stretched the forest trees. Among them rose noise of night-birds, lizards, trumpeter-beetles, and creatures countless and various, making a hoarse dim which, if it was not musical, at least, was lively. But the jungle, with its darkness and its din, had such a beauty as I have never seen equaled when its myriad fire-flies sparkled thick on every side. I . had scon fire-flies before, and heardof them; but I bad never seen or heard of anything like these. The pe culiarity of themwsß,,not that they were bo_ many, though tbey.were innumerable: and not that they • were very large ; • but that they clustered, aa' by a pre concerted plan. on certain kinds of trees, avoiding carefully all other kinds, and then, as if by: signal of some director of the spectacle, they all sent forth their light at once.-at simultaneous andL exact intervals, so that the whole tree seemed to flash and palpitate with living light. Imagine it! At one-instant was black ness ofdarkness, and the croaking jungle. Then sud denly, on. every side,.flashed out these fierytrees, tho form of each, from topmost twig to outmost bough, set thick with flaming Jewels. -, • . v The flooding sunlight of the tropical morning, did not dispel from the.traveler the sensation of “ passing through some pleasant dream of the ‘Arabian Nights/ ” It was then that the air was filled with a delicate and delicious music, thus explained: , Within a stoned throw of toy window rose the aWn 'ing tower of the moat splendid temple in Bangkok. From ita broad, octagonal base to the tip of its splen did spire, it must measure, I think, a good deal more than 200 feet, and every Inch of its Irregular surface glitters with ornaments. Curiously vhrought into it are forms of men. and birds, ’ and grotesque that seem, with outstretched bands or claws, to hold it up. Two-thirds of the way from the base stand, I re member, four white elephants, wrought in shilling porcelain, facing one each way toward the four points of the compass. From the rounded summit rises, like a needle, a sharp spire. This was the temple-tower; and all over the magnificent.pile, from tho.tip of the high est needle to the base, from every prominent angle and projection, there were hanging bells, with little gilded attached to their tongues, so' swinging that they were vocal in the slightest breeze. Here was where the music came from. Even !as I stood and looked. I caught the breezes at it. Coming from the unseen 'distance, rippling the smooth surface of the swift river, where busy oars and carved or gilded prows of many boats were flashing in the sun. sweeping with pleasant whispers through the varied richness of the tropical stealing the perfume of its blossoms and the odor of its fruits, they caught the shining bells of the great tower, and tossed the. music out of them. In fhia charming “ Venice of the East ” were' held the courts or those two remarkable sover eigns to whom, reigning together under the titles of the First and Second King. Siam owes its dignity among toe nations. In them, while they uvea, and in their intelligent and worthy sons and successors, all that is most important in the history and condition of Siam is centred.' They died, the younger in 1866, and the elder a little more than a year afterward. The charac ters of these rqyal brothers, described with care ful analysis, and the life-like picture of their Courts, where barbarism and enlightenment meet in curious lines of transition,: form the most interesting portion pi! “The Land of the TVhito Elephant.” Their portraits and those, of their successors,—one 'of ' whom was named George Washington, as a. tribute of admiration for America —are among the illustrations. ‘ •' The circumstances of the death of the First King axe of peculiar inteiest, as they are con nected with the great solar eclipse In August, 1868, when the King of Siam bad a splendid ob servatory built at Huawan, and equipped an ex pedition of extraordinary magnitude.

In Europe, throe varieties of- color in the skin are distinctly marked, —olive brown with black hair, heard, and eyes; chestnut, with- tawny heard- ; and -bluish eyes; blonde, with fair heard and sky-blue eyes. Whits skins show more readily alterations occa sioned by light and heat; hut, though leas strik ing, facts of variation in color are observable in others.. The Bcyteo-Arabic race has but half its representative in Europe and Central Asia, whili -the remainder passes down to the Tndlsn Ocean, continuing to snow the gradual raisingrif climate by deepening, brown complexions. .

To illustrate "by a striking .example, as the _ temper*! ance lecturer said when he exhibited his travel* : ing companion in a state of* inebriety, Cb&rlu Nodier was engaged to write a novel as the feefl* .leton of a certain journal.
