Blackwood has the following very capital re flections upon modern books of voyages, which, to some extent, will apply likewise to narratives of travel. Who will not heartily sympathize ' with -'Old Maga" in his impatience with the " dreary calculations about tne dip of the nee dle, magnetic poles, barometrical pressures," ?tc.? e know not how it is, but few modern books of voyages appear to us to possess that richness, raciness and variety which were so characteris tic in the narratives of the early navigators. We cannot admit that this decay of interest is mainly to be attributed to the increase of our years, which are many, or to a vitiated taste endangered by long indulgence in spited lite rary viands. *\ e do not. of course, mean to as sert that we can now devour a book with the terrible avidity of a youngster, dream of it all night, and awake on the morrow with undimin ished appetite for the banquet. That stage has long gone by. and we are glad of it; for, u#our I idiosyncrasy inclines us to the reperusal of es- | pecial favorites, we could not bv thil time have ' got beyond " Jack the Giant-killer," " Sanford and Merton." the " Fool of Quality," the ' Arabian Nights" and the "Pilgrim's Pro gress ?books wh ch for a long period were our prime and almost exclusive favorites. But even ! now such works as the " Voyages of Cook." or the "History of the Buccanocrs," have to us an inexpressible ?hartu. We never weary of the description of the Eden isle of Otaheitc, with its bread-fruit und its palms?of New Holland, w-tii its fauna, first disclosed to the European f.Te wr of the wild adventures of the reckless b^nd who plundered tho Spanish galleons and overawed the garrisons of Panama. But when I we turn to inoderu books of voyage, we find ' them for the most part dull, frigid, and over loaded with circumstantial detail. They want picture*quene.->*. they want poetry, and they are intolerably scientific In them we are constant ?j aggravated by dreary calculations about the dip ot the needle, magnetic poles, barometrical pressure, and other topics of the sort, which possibly might interest a small minority of the members of a Royal Society, but which, on men in general, have merely the effect of forcing the jaws to expand for the utterance of a protractcd yawn. Lot the very grandest volcano in the world be belching forth its antartic fires at an un known elevation, the accomplished navigator does not try to give a picturc of that sublime spectacle by word-painting, but bestows all his energy upon a description of the strata and the scorse. until the reader feel* as if he h ad eaten for dessert half-a-dozen pippin) grown on the shores of the Dead Sea. Beast*, birds, fishes, molluscs, trees, shrubs, flowers, and lichens. ' are not sketched as they appear to the outward eye. but are catalogued in preposterous Latin, whiah conveys as vivid an idea of their aspect, as if the narrator had taken the pains to tran scribe a few pages of " Ainsworth's Dictiona ry." In short, the curse of the age?pedan try. and an affectation of superior knowledge? has lighted even on our navigators, a class of 1 men whom we might reasonably have expected > to be free from such a baneful influence. Yes?were it our last word?we should pro test against the egregious foppery of science, which tends so strongly toward- symbolism, and eold unidea'd nomenclature! Botany and chemistry, and geology, und mineralogy, and ' zoology, and icthyology, with twenty, fifty, nay : an hundred other ologies at their back, are rap idly corrupting our language, barbarising us in i expression, and annihilating descriptive power, j Those who in reality know nothing of these ' sciences, or. at best, only possess a smattering ?.f them, think it their duty to accommodate themselves to the prevalent jargon ; hencothey write like dissectors, and. instead of giving us t>ooks of vivid travel, put forth polyglot man which can profit none. Even the more sensible, who despiso the affectation of appear ing more versed in science than they actually are, feel a kind of awo for the learned bodies who infallibly will pronounce judgment on their researches, ar.d retrain studiously from an ex pression of feeling or enthusiasm which they rightly consider to be a style extremely dis tasteful to the ologists. So they con tine them ? Selves to the meteorological observations, jot Lings of soundings, meuiorauda of the quantity of ooal consumed by their engines, rt cetera. which results in their narratives possess, in the eyes of the general public, little more interest than would be felt in the recorded voyages of the captain of n steamer, plying regularly twice in the week between the ports of Rotter dam and Loudon. We do not expect, and we do not wish, to re ceive from our explorers or navigators fine writing, as the term is generally understood. W# do not want them to moralise, or wax maud lin. or intersperse their narrative with pathetic and philanthropic reflections. We waut them to tell us what they saw and what they heard, not with pre-Raphaelite minuteness, but even a* these things are impressed on their memo ries?for the memory of man is, for all pur poses of reproduction, a thousand times supe rior to note-books and journals, which invaria bly contain superfluities of no actual interest, and terribly wearisome when repeated. We want them to write freshly, freely and forcibly, conveying to us readers, as closelv as may be, the sensations they experienced; lor which pur pose. and as a guide, we earuestly recommend all future explorers to study the works of the late Thomas Cringle. An attentive perusal of these will at onco rvveal the enormous differ ence between scientific symbolism and masterly deliueation of nature?between diagram and landscape?between the catologue and the sub jects of exhibition. It is absurd to suppose that the charm of novelty is gone. bccause we arc better acquaint ed. through books, than we were fifty years ago, with the aspect of antipodean regions, and trie manners of their inhabitants Mature never palls. We, wbo?e destiny it is to tarry at home rather than wander over the face of the habita ble globe, feel and ackuowledgo the truth of that axiom. A visit, however protracted, to the beautiful lnkos of England, or to ticotland's m ,re romantic Highland scenery, so far from I satiating or fatiguiug. inspires us with a loug- 1 ing u> return. Mill it* our dreams we sec the placid sheet of Windermere, or hear the cata racts calling to one another as they thunder down the gorges Cruachan And what lies ut terly bey md our ken. belongs to the realm of fancy The polar seas, with their awful ice berg* and floe#, dimly descried amidst the dark ness. or lighted up by the shimmering of the crimsou aurora?the dense American forest closing its collotfa) growth over the ruins of an ancient city, founded, it may be, and peopled, when Britain was a thicket and a swamp?the wide, opeu prairie, dotted over with countless buffalo, herds of ihe >un. more noblo than those which tempted the famished Ithacans to their ruin?the Indian jungle wherein the tiger prowl*. and the sernent sleeps and swells?the graud peaks of tho Liimmalayas. which seem to pi/rce the azure, highest pinnacles of the visi ble creation of Clod?the isles of the Pacific, oases of the ocean desert, with their feathered tufts of palms, deep lagoons, and coral reefs, where the pelicans have their home, all these we must be and are eontent to see through the | ejes of others, provided they use their own nat ural vision, and dispense with tho abomination .(if scientific specUclos!

That old magazine, so famous for it* de vout Anglican prejudices, quotes extensively from tho Lieutenant's books, devoting sixteen yaqts to it. " Being an American," says Black wood," '-we need hardly state that Mr. Haber sham is wide awake, lie possesses the enviable faculty of being always on the alert, with a keen eye and rapid judgment; and consequently he was able to pick Up more valuable informa tion in the course of a single day. than a stolid doiy fellow would have acquired after a month's listless contemplation. Above all. he is free from huuibug.

Haber sham. and not a little grateful to the national feeling, which is proud of the achievements of our gallant naval oSftcers. TRAVELING FOR PLEASURE VIEWED MEDICALLY. In the last number of the Boston Medical World we find some suggestive hinta on this subject, the pith of which we will endeavor to give in n few lines : The writer thinks that in our country there is much travel, ostensibly for health, where, in his opinion, the* injury far surpasses the gain. Inexorable Fashion says, we must go from our l.ome in dog days ; and in obedience to her mandate, there is a rush in all our cities and towns, from the metropolis down to the smallest village, to the place where this "goddess'' specially presides. This is the season when the quiet and comfort of borne are the most health ful and necessary. But, instead of this, we find people determined to exchange the large, airy, brick-wallcd room* of tho towns, and the cool mattrass and fine linen, for the heating cotton, greasy feathers and dirty sheets of a tavern, or pent-up village, or watering place, hotel or boarding-house. But who. asks the Doctor, could live through a hot summer without visiting Nahant, New port, Saratoga, or Niagara ? He does not deny them an occasional trip to such places, but pro tests against taking the hottest season to make these visit* with the expectation of thereby pro moting health. At the season usually taken, ho says, the organs of digestion are least able to discharge their function. They sympathize with all the other parts of tho body, and. like them, require rest, and. he asks, is this the time to leave the frugal, wholesome fare at home, and rush to the gathering places, where every board groans with its life-killing feasts, and where the luxuries provided and the exciting presence and example of hundreds of mouths, eager to reward the purse at the expense of the stomach, render it next to impossible to obey the lawsof heulMi? Where, besides, this poor pack horse, thij groau ing organ, is teased with mineral waters, wines, bitters, pills, tobacco juiec and tobacco fumes, to ease itfelf of it* cumbersome burdens. Dr. Smith maintains that there is nothing more delusive than the generally received im pression that people are growing better, be cause, as they suppose, they are gaining flesh. Under the spasmodic action of this parapher nalia of stimulants there is often an appearance of more flesh. But it is diseased, not sound, healthy flesh. For every pound of such nature , will be revenged i Hence it is, the Doctor argues, that most per- | sons, soon after a return from such fashionable j gather places, have an attack of dyspepsia. |p biliousness, sick head ache, pulmonary nd'ee- ' tion. or cutaneous eruption. These abuses, oe- j curring periodically, undermine the best con- ; stitution. Taking children to such places the writer de nounces as the very consummation of folly. More than half the so-called diseases of the season, and the death of children which occur in August and September arise, he says, from this fa>hionable dissipation. Jons Phoenix upon the c.i.omors Forum. The immortal John Phoenix, in his celebrated Uration in Oregon, says: Every boy in tho United States knows the origin of this glorious day. Small sums of mo ney. varying from 12J cents to$l..r>0, according to the financial prosperity of their parents, have been annually given them to expend on this occasion, which indelibly impress the fact upon their memories, and leads them to look forward with pleasure to its return. One of my earliest and most cherished recollection is of of my exploits on the 4th of July, that I can re member, when, with patriotic fervor. I pur chased a leaden cannon, which, exploding pre maturely, burned off my hair and eyebrows, and put an end to the existence of a favorite cat of my old aunt's, that i>eacefully reclined watching my operations We elect our own rulers and, make our own laws, and if they don't turn oul well, it is very easy at the next election to make others in their place. Everybody has a chance for distinction in this country; nothing is wanting but natural ability to do it; and Mrs. Lavinia Pike's baby, now lying with a cotton flannel shirt on, in a champagne basket, in Portland. O. T.. has just as good a chance of being President of the Uni tcd States, as the imperial infant ot France, now sucking his royal thumbs in his silver cradle at Paris, has of being an emperor. I do not wish to flaiter this audience; I do not intend to be thought peculiarly complimentary; but I do assure you that there is not a man present who, if he had votes enough, might not not be elected President of the United States. And this ini|<nrtant fact tho result not so much of any peculiar merit or virtue on your part, as of the nature of our glorious, liberal, republican institutions. In this great and desirable country, any man may become rich, provided he will learn, and has money to pay for his board and schooling; and any man may bcoome grea aud of weight in the community, if he will tako good care of his health, and eat sufficiently of boiled salmon and potatoes. Moreover, I assert it unblushingly. any man in this country may marry any woman he pleases?the only difficulty being for him to find any woman that he does please. StCpesDors Hoax.?A certain Individnal of this city (no matter who) being of the opinion that the Fourth of July was likely to prove void of any excitement. or public interest, and wish ing to change ouch an aspect of affair*. circulated through the city a poster, stating thai Professor Culex would perform the wonderful feat of walk ing on the water: the performance to take place on tlie Potomac river, in front of the canal locks, at 10 o'clock a. ni. Sight free to all, Ac. Long before the appointed time, hundreds of people of all ages and of both sexes. could lie seen wending their way toward the river; and at the hour of in. it is estimate! that there were between two and three thousand persons present to witness the wonderful iterfuriiutice, besides which, every window and hill that commanded a view of the river, was occupied Prof. Culex was in every bjdy's mind, he seemed to be the sole subject of interest. As the time appointed passed, aud II o'clock drew near, and still no Prof. Cuiex was to l>e seen, the people became impatient; about thi? ttrne It was whispered that Cnlex was the Latin word for Moequifo, when the truth tlastied upon their minds, that they had all been "sold."' They Deemed to take it, however, in good humor, and although some faces wore an air of disap E ointment. still a majority enjoyed the joke, and eartily laughed over the circumstance.?Cum berland Cimtimm.

The frames are made portable by moans of joints, so that they nui) tie taken down or put up in the spacc of five minutes. In case of travelling or stor age in the winter they are readily packed in boxes or trunks, oecuprmg little more space than an um brella when closed. When put up they form a large, airy, and beautiful canopy for the bedstead, and, in stead of detractiug from its appearance, they really form an elegant and graceful ornament. In winter the frames msy lie covered with heavy brocade or any other heavy drapery if desired. To hotel keepers they are especially recommended for their durability and convenience, and aiso fami lies who want the most elerant canopies at the least cost.
