We have now arrived to the last scene of the fifth net. 1 shall leave here to-morrow for the classic land of Greece.

IIU .UUIHH . I. \ Ull lllli'?urr travel through the land of Kdoin to Pern-it?thence to Hebron and Jerusalem?our excursion to the Dead Sen and River Jordan?the City of Nazareth, the Seu of Genezareth, St. Jean d'Acre, Damascus, Boulbeck, and Beyrout. A day or two alter our artivul in the hitt< r city, we hud the* pleasure of learning that the steamboat which had been discontinued for the last two months had arrived, and was to proceed direct to Smyrna. We accordingly left Beyrout by her on the 23th March. The boat was provided with a library and was very comfortable. The cabin appropriated to ladies, was occupied bv the women of the harem of Selim Pacha, and consisted of four blacks and two whites, guarded by two or three eunuchs. They came on deck during the voyage, hut had their faces entirely concealed by shawls. The weather was charming, and the next morning Cyrpus, the favorite abode of the Goddess of Beauty, hove in sight. We anthored oil' Lnrnecn, hut us we came from a district infected with plague, we were not permitted to laud. We arrived ut Rhodes on the 2$th; 'he Colossus (one of the wonders of the world,) no longer exist?. It is supposed to have been about 125 feet high, and to have stood on two rocks at the entrance of the harbor, about 50 feet upart, so that the snjall vessels of those days could pass between its legs. It was thrown down by an earthquake 5t? years niter it was built, in the year (>72. Nine hundred years afterwards it was sold to a Jew for old brass, who loaded nine hundred camels with it. The Knights of St. John, after being driven from St. Jean d'Acra, came here, and remained until 1510, when they surrendered to Solymun, and established themselves shortlyafter in Malta. Having received an invitation from the health officer, we went on shore, accompanied by a guardiano, and walled through the " Street of the Knights." It was very desolate, and on each side were the palacsc of the knights, with the coats of arms of the dilferent nations represented by them, in marble, over the doors and windows. At the njspcr end of the street we passed through a fine old gateway, once part of the Church of St. Johns, and near these ruins was the council chamber of the knights. The ditches and defences appeared very strong, and I observed many tnarble bullets in the streets of large size, remains of ancient ammunition Over the central gateway of the harbor was Jnarblo nitch, beh>w which were itircest ;un s.two of theni female*. At the square tower wus tlie spot where the hist gallant defenea w.ia made. On the morning of the 30th we left Rhodes, and in about twelve hours w-re <df Coh, surrounded by islands in ev?ry direction, or rather mountain's rising out of the sea. The next morning at breakfast time we were off Scio, the scene of the horrid carnage in 1822, when only about 1000 Greeks, out of a population of 120,000 escaped, and about fifty merchants were hung up at the yard arm. In the* afternoon we reached Smyrna, situated at the bottom of n bay about .'50 miles deep, and a good harbor. The view of the city is very pretty, and on the top of a loftv lull are extensive ruins of an ancient fortress, and to the right of this isa Turkish burial ground, with a forest of lofty Cyprusses towering alwve it. There were two French shi|ts of the line in harbor, two warateamere, several Austrian ships of war, and many merchantmen. As we were to be quarantined thirteen day*, we made arrangements for the occupation of a new house near the lazaretto, instead of that gloomy building. Our table was supplied by uri innkeeper of Smyrna, and we found ourselves very comfortably as well as behutifully situated. Our party consisted of Lord Butler, Mr. Morris, of Ireland, the Kev. Mr. Woodyear of England, the Hon. Messrs. de Grey, Mr. Fntzer, of Canada, Mr. Austin and Mr. Bush of Mew York At one comer of the piazza waved the American llag we had on the Nile, and on the other the Engli-hljack. We had the privilege of walking out, accompanied by the guardiani, and amused ourselves by practising at a mark with pistols, pitching coits, reading and playing cards. \v lien ourquar.munc w is <-ompifieu, we mine | soni" pleasant excursions in the neighborhood of the city. We visited the citadel, which is situated on an elevated position, from which the view is very fine. It is on the Acropolis of Old Smyrna, and the ruins are extensive. We passed through the extensive cemeteries, shaded with the gloomy Cyprus, arid rode toalittlc solitud - called the baths of l>i.ina, near which there is an immense sycamore The head-dress of the Stnyrniote ladies is verv pretty. We started ?n the 16th of April in the Austrian steamer for Constantinople, and again found the women of a harem occupying the lady's cabin. We p-ached Mityleni at about midnight, and were off Tenedos at ten in the morning. We entered the Dardanelles at about noon, and at 2 P.M. were o|>positc Scstos and Abydos. We bear recalled that fatal night, Leamler, when the well known light, From 8e?to*'? turret piercing, The welcome iignnl give. 'Twin Hero't hand that from the steep, l.ighteil thy course along the deep, O'er Hellespont'! wild wave. Ill-fated youth, that wave ran high, Destruction smiled ?no aid win nigh ?

Lord llyron, when he imitated the feat of Leander, swain from Sestos to Abydos, which is much easier than the reverse, aa Scstos is some oi"iange up, ami uic guncm tuns ittTur. None of the ruins or Abydos remain, but nt Seatos there are som vary large w,die on the heights. At about eight o'clock of the morning of ihe Hth, we arrived at this city, the approach to which is beautiful in the extreme, and well merits it* high reputation. We pisred around the seraglio'point, and anchored in the Golden Horn. We then proceeded to rh Hotel de R?||evne iu Pera,on the oppoaiteaide from Constantinople, which town is occupied by Franks, who are not allowed to reside in the

latter city. We went to the top of the tower of (5nlatu, near our hotel, which is verv lofty, and on a commanding situation, from which one of the most beautiful scenes in the world hurst upon our view. The lofty minarets of St. Sophia, and the other immense mosques, were piercing the skies to the height of 300 feet. TW light canities were crossing the Golden Horn in such numbers as almost to look like a bridge of boats. At one end of it were the seraglio gardens, and at the other the Turkish fleet,among which was the'Malimoiidie of 140 guns, and 1000 tons burthen: she is 212 feet long, anil 4J2 feet H inch beam. She lias a lion figure lieadnnd a square stern?was built by a Turk, and is a very fine vessel, as also are several 7 I's built by them at Trebisond. Beyond her lay the "Newitertia" (Victoria), the fi>4 gun frigate commenced by Mr. Eokford, the longest frigate afloat, and most likely the fastest sailer. She is 220feet between perpendiculars, ofi feet beam and 27 leet hold, is very sharp, and lias a beautiful flaring how. Besides the ships of the lin-, there were war steamers, steam yachts: &e., of perfect symmetry. Along ths shore of the Bosiihorus, the eye would rest on the Sultan's fairy palaces, Hnd|thc whole panorama was'bounded in the distance by the most varied icenery. About HO nules to the south, Mount 01?inpus raised its snowy summit, which was gliterlng in the sun, and nearer, in the same direction, I'rbice'.a Islands appear floating on the sea of Marou't'n Aa soon an we could tear ourselves lroin this i R K 1! MORNING, JULY 14, 184 splendid view, we look a caigue to sail around the slii|s? ol war. These boats nrr extremely light, shaped like a canoe, only very sharp Hi the fore end, and much deeper nnd broader at the other. They 1 are highly ornamented with carving inside, and kept in the most perfect order. It is necessary to he extremely cautious in entering them, as they float like an eggshell, and would easily ujiset. They are propelled by one, two, or three men, according to their size, with a pair of sinall oars each, which are handsomely turned, and have a large swell inside, near the hand, to counterbalance the palm outside; thev glide along with great rapidity, and are managed with great dexterity. After taking a look at the licet Irom our boat, we went to the Navy Yard to ace Mr. Reeves, the architect, who promised to procure an order from the Capudun I'acha lor us to visit thein. But as preparations were being made fora visit from the Sultan, it was not procured until the day of our departure, when we a.signed it oyer to some ol our Knglish friends. Mr. Reeves is building a large war steamer of liundsotne model. The next day we crossed the llolJen Horn to i Constantinople, and alter a long walk through the 1 streets,filled wittiRhnps and nrti/.ans ut work at their 1 various occupations, we arrived at the sluve mar- I kef, a large liuilding, with rooms looking towards a (.art m (lie centre. The whole of these apart- i lini.o were occupied by almost exclusively i Mack slaves, most ot" whom wore a while I coveting over a part t>f the face, to show | th ,t dc v were damaged goods, ami were to he re sold tor ni: conduct. After re-crossing the limn, we went to see the religions ceremonies of : the dancing or waltzing Dervishes. The hinlding is of an octagon form, und there was a convenient t position appropriit.-d to Chttstians After performing for about half an hour the u.ui il prostrations of | the Mahometans. with the face toward Mecca, and occasionally repeating aloud the usual fervent and pi ejaculations of that truly religious people, such as " Allah akluir," Are , the party consisting of about twenty inen, dressed in a sort of loose frock, with high white felt lints, shaped like an inverted garden flower-pot, threw off their cloaks, and after first passing slowly und bowing on both sides of the Superior's sent, which he had vacated to lend them, they began whirling round with their eyes nearly closed and arms extended, for about ten < r fifteen minutes, with great speed and regularity, ned without coining in collision, until the eyes of the spectators became almost dizzy by looking on. After inarching around the room two or three times, bowing as h -fore, the whining was repealed until at a given signal ail stopped simultaneously, and facing the centre of the room without fail This fanatical nonsense w.. continued about an hour. Their frocks from the waist to the floor formed perfect cones, from the violent rotary motion. There was a sort of orchestra, consisting of a kind of drum and reed pipes and some voices to accompany the dancers, although not so much to my taste as the Italian (\!'ru established here, which is, however, quite inferior to at Smyrna. However extraordinary this mode of worship inav appear, it was nothing when compared with what we saw a day or two afterward at Scutari, 011 the opposite side of the Bosphorus, at the convent of Howling Dervishes. Previous to the ceremonies we looked through the immense cemetery of Sen tagi. wht 'li being in Asia, ia revered aa more sacred ground tlun Ktirojie, and has received the remains of millions Irom the opposite shore. At both the birth und death of a Moslem, a cypress tree is Planted at his grave, and consequently there are miles of these gloomy hut stately trees. We here observed a monument much more lofty and grand than the others by which it was surrounded, und learned that it was the spot where the favorite horse of Sultan Selim was buried. Having entered the church, we saw various instrument- of torture hanging around the walls, such as chain scourges, pointed irons, Sec., which were used for self-punishment by these fanatics, by running them in their flesh, and sometimes red hot, through their cheeks, until prohibited by the orders of government. After various eyre- I monies, they arranged themselves around the sides 1 of the room, verv closely together, nnd moved their | bodies backward and lorward with great violence, their heads shaking about on their shoulders in such a manner that it was wonderful they did not drop ofl'. This shaking and violent agitation of the body was continued alternately in a standing and sitting position, to a howling and grunting noise, made by live whole party, but perfectly in unison, until it reached double i|uiek time. At this period, many of them became raving mad from the agitation the brains had undergone ; their laces became purple, the perspiration poured Irom them, and tie v dasln il th> ir heads with the greatest violence on the floor. The individual who gave the hardest thuny i nippose was considered the most inspired l>y thi* spirit. Wh'-n any of theni fell into a convulsive lit, those who had taken a less active |>art in the proceedings stretched th-m on the floor and prevented them from doing themselves any further injury. There were several boys in the party going through the same evolutions. The whole scene was admirably calculated to convey an idea of n mad-house, and ' was beyond doubt the most extraordinary instance 1 of mental or relisious delusion ever witnessed.? 1 There were two who were evidently wags in their way, and although they,did a full share of work, were occasionally laughing, and had come for a frolic beyond a doubt. Notwithstanding these ex- 1 captions, I rnn.-t do the Turks the justice to say, that as far as my observation extends, they are the most 1 I ions people in the world, prostrating themselves in prayer three timed a day, on the deck of a steamer, 1 on the road side, or wherever they may he, and following the precepts of their religion so closely that 1 dishonesty is almost unknown among them.? Touching the instances ot fanaticismjust mentioned, it is useless to blind ourselves to exhibitionsseareelv less ridiculous among some of the professors of Christianity ; and with regard to their intolerance, which is fast wearing away, Christians being admitted in all the mosques hut one in Constantinople, it is probable that there i.- an equal degree of that feeling toward certain per.-tiasions, by a majority ofthe members of our own religion, and perhaps a more cordial bate among come ofthe sects of which it is composed. The mosque in which Christians are forbidden to enter is called Egonb, and is situated at the upper end ofthe lioldcn Horn, near which we saw some splendid tombs and monuments of the royal family, although from the profusion of gold and colors with which they were covered as wall a the elaborate carvings, they had none of that solemnity whieh we consider as essential to a [ilace of repose for the dead. The Sultnns consider the same display essential in the grave us that which characterises their movements on earth. We hud an opportunity of witnessing a gorgeous scene of Eastern mngniliceiiee, on the occasion of the Sultan's visiting die mosk instate. The one selected was situated on the shore of the Bosnhorus, and we had a fine view of his departure from it. The hnrque in whieh lie went had canopies with crimson velvet i curtains and sofas, and were propelled by 3d oars 1 A hand of music struck up on his disembarking and ' embarking at the mosque, and the shii>s of war, 1 wnieli were "over d with flags, fired a salule on his < leaving and reaching the pulace,. He was attended ' by all the dienitaries of state in the barges which 1 followed. The Sultan's name is Abdul Medjid, 1 Hrtd he is a good-looking young man, of about 20 years of age. I We then crossed to Constantinople, and went to see the subterranean reservoir of Jeri Batum Serai, 1 a very ancient work of great strength, with massive aifche?. extending under a large portion of the city, and filled with wafer broueht bv. the nniieditef nf I Vnlurs, which is vry substantial and lofty, unrl con- < stfucted on double arches. We then went to the ' HilH>odroine,now h public square, in which there is 1 an ol?e|i.-k of Egyptian granite, nhout fifty feet I high, standing; on an elaborately carved pedestal, ' wpich from an inscription, appears to Ithve been ' placed there by the Etnperor Fhcodosiua Not far 1 off is a broken spiral bronze column, about twelve feet high and eighteen inches diameter, called the ' Rron/.e rpeuts, and no doubt the one brought by J Constantino from jVlphi. The heads have been broken off and carried away. Hevond this, there is ' an imitation obelisk of ma son work, in a very dilapi dated state,of about one hundred c ndffnrty feet high f and six feet square. It appears to have been former- 1 It covered with bronze plates, from the hole* in its < sides. It is called the obelisk of Arcadius. We 1 afterwards proceeded to the splendid tomb of the ' late Sultan Mahmoud II. It is built of marble, and the windows through which the magnificent sarco- 4 phagus is seen, are covered with iron gratings, 1 richiy worked and gilded The garden walls of the [" same are similarly fitted. We then passed the " Burnt Column," about one hundred feet high nnd H eight feet diameter, which has become blackened r by 'he numerous conflagrations that have taken place around it. We also went info the snhferrane. fi ons reservoirs called the cistern of Itlttl columns It H tnav formerly have had that number, but n partition n wall has been run across; it whs occupied by spin- 3 nersof silk. Having secured a favorable position to ' see the Sultan proceed in state to the Mowpie of Sttl- " tan Ahmed the next dav, it being the anniversary I' of the birth day of Mahomet, called Mcvloud, and the greatest least of the year, we returned home hv h the splendid floating bridge that crosses the Colden v Morn. At sun down the fleet and forts kept a con- 1 taut firing, and in the evening the public buildings ? [ E R A; A. were illuminated. From the top ol our hotel the i illuminated minarets of St. Sophia ami the other iiioHrjiies towaring in the nir,had ;. line effect, : .1 < ! the illumination on Seraglio 1'oinl The next m >rn- i ins >( about t and at sunrise the ships ami toils u.-li- I ered in the day with a trenn minus roar ol cannon, ' and aftertakins an early breakfast we proceeded to I our Station near the Mosque of Sultan Ahmed. It iv is very near lite street through w hich the procession passed and also commanded a view of the immense throng assembled in the Hipp-drome. On a . latfnrm and in the street below iis was a vast nunioer of Turkish women, with their faces veiled > vcepi the eyes and no_-c, and I was somewhat siiri used to see with what deference they were treated by ill' men, and even by the soldiers when 11 ivy . mm times were obliged to force ihrough the line?it the soldiers remonstrated, they iuvaii.ihly turned round slid silenced them w ith loud reproofs and menacing gestures. The troops were dtnwii up in two hues reaching from thetSaraglio to the -and the lir.-t of the household that pa.-.-ed us, w as the dwati mid jester to the Sultan, lie belonged to the Sultan and is a person of a great influence. .seM came a large number of elegant parade lion* s. with .-aildle cloths, embroidered in the most magnificent style m ?old, und glitteiing w ith diamonds. Large nlume : were waving gracefully over their !: ads. Tie.- g neruls mid admirals mounted in the s..,.u- . plcmlid ityle, followed, wearing blue truck coats, beautifully embroidered with gold, with a brilliant dia inond crescent and star hanging on the breant.

He was followed by many other dignitaries, too numerous to un ntion. After stopping about an hour in tin- tucMpie, the pro- < ei?'ion pas ed us again in the sains order?and trout our ei'ttspicuons situation < u a piatioitu on top ot a low corner house, we could not i scape hi.-, ol -creation. lie looke 1 at us intently until he passi <1, but it is contrary to < than tte It r him to bow. We remained with our heads uncovered until lie pu-s<d ?a token ot respect lie highly appreciates troin Franks, although contrary to the it: ages of his own country. The Sultan's mother followed in a splendid gilded waggon and following this, was nnothei containing several ladies ol honor of her suite, one of whom looked at its steadily and raised a tlower in a decidedly coqueti- li maimer. < 'n descending from our position we got wedged into a <f use crowd oi ladies, where we had to remain until many of the troons had passed rmd a number el waggon# richly gilded, called " araban," tilled with ladies and drawn ny white oxen highly decorated with looking glasses on their foreheads, Arc. 1 must here notice a mark of civility on the nart of the police, who unceremoniously removed ail the Turkish men near us, who also find got crowded among the women, but did not attempt to molest us. We then returned home highly gratified that we had reached here in time for this splendid pageant, and took a caique tu visit the fleet which was elegantly decorated and literally covered with banners. The Sunday following, alter looking through the arms bar.aar, the Khaus, A'c , we took a lour oared caique and went to the "sweet Waters ol Europe," whit It is a pretty winding lit" 1 stream that empties itself into the upper end ol the Golden Horn. The Hrand Seignor h. a summer palace here?and the grounds and banks of the stream are much frequent d by visiters as a promenade?some coming in caiques, some on horseback and others in the gilded arahas drawn by oxen.

The receiving room was gorgeous beyond all description,both in regard to its architectural details and the furniture, among which we particularly noticed some immense glass vases of various colors! and a pair of gold and blue urns on pedestals. Itsituation was also charming, looking on and up the Bosphorus. It is impossible to enumerate till the chambers?some of which had plates of glues of the largest size?hut I cannot omit noticing the presentation hall with 40 Corinthian columns; it was in white mid gold with an arched and lofty ceihng? WBS about ISO feet long and 70feet wide. Although this palace is in the European style, vot it is so florid and splendid in its details both outside and in, that it seemed as if it bad been conjured up by the enhantment of Aladdin's lamp, and appeared like an illusion to" beautiful to lie real, we Obtained ad mission to this palace by some skilful marxpuvre on lip- purt of our dragoman, us nobody is allowed to visit it. and theColonel had been endeavoring to get a look through it for nearly a year. Mr. Brown, the l'on.- ul and dragoman of the American < mbi: sv. regretted that he had not been of the pa: tv, and told lis that Commodore Porter had obtained a >ncctnl firman from the Sultan, hut had only seen a lew of tlie apartim-nta. We were much indebted to that gentleman for procuring its a lit man to visit the seraglio, mosques, Are., without which Franks arc not [lermitted to enter. Our party consisted of about twenty, as I had invited the Knglish here to accompany us, theirnnibuMmdor having recently applied to the minister of foreign alliurs or from sonic other cause being unwilling to make the request. Four Russians also joined us at the mosque of St. Sophia, ili-' application of their ambassador being refused. Before crossing to Constantinople we visited the mosque of Mahmoud the 2d, (the late Saltan,) at Tophano. < >n reaching the other side we passed tli< large gate called the Sublime Porte and went to tly mosque of St. Sophia. There are eight green columns from the temple of Kphesus, four each side of the church, they are about thirty feet liiah and tlifcefeet diameter ; behind these are sm tiler on< The eight porphyry columns from the temple of (In Sun at Baalbeck, are placed iwo iu each corner? tlijey are much broken and surrounded by bands el iron. One of the square columns is called tin sweating column, and is suppo ed to po- ess sotin miraculous qualities, and is covered with bronze to ilie height of seven or eight feet to prevent it Irom being kissed away.

I'he other apartments we entered in the following irder :?a ladies' apartment, rich with blue fresco ?nd gold; a richly gilded room, with some splendid words, Arc.; a bathing room, dressing and sitting oom. We then passed a Jong corridor, in which he girls are drawn up in ImA, on the 27tli of the iionth of Kaine an, on which sacred feast the r?-1 i[1011 of tin- Koran allows the ?Irani!
