' EVENING STAR., HOW TO SEE THE WORLD. Among tbe valuable lessons which travelers teach, is the art of making the bert of every thing just at the time when m<>st wanted. A traveler, especially in thinly-inh tbitedoreemi barbarwts countries, is perpetually put to his wits todevise i? rv?deofoverct minz diffl ultiea. His food fails, hi? beverage fail?, his fuel fails, his clothing fails?hi* ms*vmment*. his arms, his cooking-vessels, his tents, bin wagons, his beasts of burden, his guides, bis servants, his money, his health?aiij of the6e may fah biin at a pincb, and it is a part of kk duty as a traveler, an almost indispensable condition ot his succcss, to possess a facility of contriving make-shifts instead of sitti ig down hopelessly to mourn over something which Is lost, or u?ed up, or broken. To catalogue -uob probabli make-shifts. and to supply bints f<?r surmount ing difficulties, are the<d>jects ot Mr. Gal ton's remarkable volume, lat* ly published. It is a sinall book, but is stuff d full of facts: and muuy of these facts are uot 01 ly of great vaiu to the traveler, but are worth k.iowiugby 'bo-e whose travels extend only a little way beyouu their own firetddes. lie Uvats it. #uceessiou o water, fire, bivouac, clothes, food. o?ok?ry I discipline, dcience, hidiug-?'u?cj, boat* and rafts, |?atbJ, carrying weights, carpentry , smith s-work, skins and horn , writing mate i rails. riding and draught animals, and Harness, wagons and vehicles, guns, trapping, fishing, medicinos. pre.seut?. articles for barter, and mapping implements. It may be interest ing to jot down a few curiosities from this budget. W hen an exhausted traveler is in want of water, the converging flight of birds, or the converging fresh traeks of animals, may olten guide him to a spring or pool: it is about nigl.t fall that desert-birds a unlly drii#, and tLe thirsty tiaveler looks out for their course ot flight at such a time. If a thirsty man strips, aud exposes his jterson to a showr of rain, bis thirst is greatly allayed. I? hi has nothing to drink but muddy water, let him tie together a good handful of grass in the form of ? com, place the large end ot the cone up the stream, and the water will become parti lly fi t- red in the act of pacing thivu-h the gra-->s Ii a traveler be short ol water-vessels, a canv.iss b.ig. well greased, will bold water for a con siderable time. For striking a light in the bu.*h or the desert, a_;ate is better than flint: it makiS a hotter park* C.g 'T1 usees ar>- n t worth taken: ?e. spoil* theau.

TIm .;shes oi a cigai rubbed into apiece ot paper will qua.iiy the paoer to serve as timber In 1 the abscnoe ot wuvd fuel, dried .?i.ima' manure makes auex-ellent suost tute. Toe same may be said of bones: the Fa.kiand Islanders ofu.*n cook part of the meat of a slaughtered oX by 1 tbe heat of his own bones; and tne Kussiaus. I when in Turkey in 1829, were given fa) n-v J i bones trom the cemetery at Adrianopie as futl. I Iu bivouacking fur the night, "the oldest trav- ' elers will ever be found to be those who gotbt, 1 most systematically to work in inak n^ tl cir 1 sleeping-places dry and warm A bush is I not a good shelter for a sleeping-man; it may 1 be leafy and close at a yard from the groun.l, j but it lets through the cutting wind lower J down. ''A man as be li--s down upon bis * uioihcr-earth, is but a sma I low objoct, aud a screen eighteen ineh'-s hi^n will guard him ' se< urelj fr m the -tie ,_th < fa storm;" a broad j : sod, seven feet by two, and iurued up ??n end, will form such a screen. If nothing better t ffers, "a European can live through a bitter I 1 night on a sandy plain, w ithout any clothes I besides those he ha* on if he buries hia body I j p etty deeply in the sand, keeping only bis j head above ground; and Mr. Motfit, speaks I of "the real comfort, even luxury,'' which he once found in such a aandy blanket. That sleepers find snow to be a warm bed in a bitter j climate, is well known. Woven cloaks and coverlet* admit the wind as through a sieve, unless the texture be close. I j "It is in order to m .ke their coverings wiad- I proof that shepherd lads ou tlm hill oi Scotland, I when the nights are cold, dip thicr plaids in water before sitting or lying down in tnem: the wet swell up the fibres of the plaid, and make? j ' the texture of it perfectly dense andoloe." ' The Highland poachers adopt an odd mode of 1 "tucking" eaen other in at night: when on the moor-side on a frosty night, they cut quantities of heather, and strew part of it as a bed on the * ground; then all the party lie down, aide by side, excepting one man, whose place among I ' the rest is kept vacant for him; his business is to spread plaids upon them as they lay, and ' to heap up the rest of the heather upon the plaids; this being accomplished, the man wriggles and works himsclt into tbe gap that I has been left for him in the midst of his com- I rades. The importance ot fl.<nnel next to the ' skin cannot be overrated: inthestati ticeo. ex- j 1 peditions, it has been found that uku with ut ' this comfort sicken and die in greater number than those provided with it. Mr. Parkyus. the Abyssinian traveler, adopted a very primitive I j mode of keeping his apparel dry at a tin e I when he h;ul no change of suit: he simply took I I off hi? clothes, and sat up-n them in a bu. dl until the rain wasover! Tbe tollowing j*1 oddly to st. y-ut-homc people:?"There is no I 1 denying the fact, though it be u t agreeable to coufess it, that uirt and grease are great pro tectors of the skin afeai. si inol ment weatuer; and that, thereiore tb.. le.-dei oi a party rnou d 1 not be too exacting about the api?earauCe if I j his less warmly cla i followers Daily washing, if not followed by oiling, must be com pens., ted ' for by wearing clotiics. Take tbe instance of a dog: he will sleep out under any bush, and I 1 thrive there, so long as he is not washed, j ' groomed, and kept ciean; but if he be. he must nave a kennel to lie in. A savage will never wash, unless he can grease himself afterwards l t ?grease takes the place of clothing to him. t We can afford to wash, but naked men can- , not." I j Nettles make a dish which travelers welcome ? if other food be scarce; when gathered quite . < Joung, and boiled, they are innocuous; a;;d I , Leant*. Hue and O.ibet "were able to enj y j , tuis delightful variety of eecuk-nt u-ore than a ' ( month." Tbe young stems ol fern, boiled in | pure water, "realise a dish of delicu us asj ara- ] gus." Old hides and skins, untanned. "improve | all *mp, by being m x d wiih it. or they m ^y ' be toasted aud hammered'.'' Travelers in thin- y ly inhabited dibtrieta are frequently taught by their want* to make jerked meat, cornicing of , dried pieces; or pemmicau, made of meat dried, pounded, and mixed with grease and ( meal; or cavairt, consisting of dried fish -roe, or the whole of a fish dried; or dried and pound ed eggs. An auiinal may be boiled iahis owi hide, in default of a caldron or saucepaL iitick four stakes in the ground, and tie tbe lpur , corners of the hido up to them, leaving the bide hollow or concave iu the middle; then cat up your auiinal into small pieces, and put it < into the hollow of the hide, with sufficiency uf ( water; put iu several lai^e very hot stout . . 4 and iu due time there is your a^up and botulli. t A kind of haggis may be made in the stomach of an auimalTDlood, fat, lean, heart, lur^, j ail the solida cut or tern into small fragments, j are put into the stomaeb, and roasted, by beicg , suspended before the fire with a string. We are as*u ed th. t "It i? * most dclici us moml, even without pepper, salt, or any other season ing." Mr (laltou recommends a traveler. \ heading a party of natives, to interrupt the i monotony of travel by m trked daya, extra U baecc, augar, etc, etc.; avoid e<>aM.?nt good i teedii.g, but rather have frequent slight Usts < U> insure occasionly good lVaats, especially those gala-days, when marked stages of tke ^ J jt.urney have been readied.
