Dear Sir:?It i? generally understood lltat, in taking possession of Aden, the English Government has recently acquired a very important tniluuy(P?? on the southern shores olArabia, neartotheStra ot Babel Mandeb, which commands the heu oes and the Sea of Arabia, as Gibraltar does the Med* lerraneau and a portion of the Atlantic. B ,re few persous, I presume, in the United . tater *ho have any very distinct idea ot the exiraordiu ,ry natural tenures ol tuts new Btroug hold ot the '"aSbwTeUn more than Gibraltar, a castle ol Nature's own construction. At Gibraltar, Lnglaud nas exc vated 'or heraell a citadel in ike heart ot i lime-stoiie mountain; ai Adcni-he has planted her ?lf m an ancient crmer. and sits secure within the primeval fortress formed by the lolly sides of auex ..Mtor p;.b.bltr .0 .he creai.OTot.to tom.c race, oemiol, all history, the southerly parts ol Arabia, on the Red ?tea and the Indian Ocean, appear to have been the theatre of stupendous volcanic revolutions on^ the '2! ol the enrlh. The Whole CM. jtojjfc with enoimous mountains ol naked rotus over which lire having once passed, their blackened sulfites Irequeutly looks now as if prool against the action al.ke of sea and air, and in that aind' c',",*,e , ihev remain 1 .rever comparatively destitute ol vt- I relation. Their high peaas rise over the sea, seein ?ug ta their rugged outline and their dark sides aiid tops, to frown defiance against man and against "certainly thore never entered into my mind the imagination ot anything so desolate aspect as this who.e coast of Yemen, which, if we dill not know that the ancteuts acted in good faith in the matter, and from ignorance we might sup .ose to have been called Arabia Felix in irony and derision The Arabs struck nearer to the mark i themselves when they gave its name of tears and l sorrow to the Strait ol Bab el-Mandeb. Wherever you took you see nothing but volcanic mountains, as if the whole substance of the earth had been on fire, and had bubbled up into every capricious form covered always with the same blackenei cinders and scorim. From Cape Bab-eUMandeb eastward, you pass by u succession of these a""*"' volcanoes, separated from one another only y wastes ol raked land, until you ^Tname'lithe probably the most remarkable of all, n*?8?*JJ* confused mass of mouu.ains marked tn the old "To ?btamAaddear perception of the general con figirattou of Aden, It ? necessary to view it from ^Onapproaching Aden from the Red Sea, the voyager rounds Has Sulhel, which l8 the extremity of a mountain promontory extending far out Horn me main land, and called Jtbel Hassan; and he then passes through a narrow opening between this and Ker cape called Ras Tershein and thu. enters a spacious bay eight miles id Ilength by four in width, called by the English Black Bay- Here is ample and convenient anchorage tor ships ot war and other vessels. The bay is termed by Jebel Hassan and the low Bandy shore ol Arabia on the Se a d on the other by the promontory ol Aden which is now discovered to be com ,.oaed' ol long ridges of dark rocks, So*?? which vulcanic scoriie. from the main body ol wnicn several short spurs of extend toward tne waters ol the bav leaving between them small plains ol naked sand. On one of these small sand plains are seen the buildings ot a public house kept lor h accommodation of the steamboat PaJ^?*TLas ol on others a few scattered temporary buildings o matting and cane, while a gr the same description, oqcupied bv Luglwh officer* crowns a prominent height called by the Arabs uas Marbat, and by the tfuglish, more significantly, Steamer Point. . ,, n(.wlv Leaving Steamer Point, you proceed by a newiy constructed road, fourorhve miles along the beach, with the buy on your left hand and the mountains on your right, rounding several ot the come down to the water's edge, and crossing several intervening sand plains, andtn 0lj" mountain itselt, and thus come to the Pun, *? in called. During the last mile or two you find that the mountains have become loftier, and rise ^ scarped and stratified in a high ' which you approach obliquely in ascending Pass, where a branch of the road passes off al right angles along the base of another series of rocky Heights at the head of the bay in vrhich apj^ar I a number ol large insular rocks. At the 1 ass y o enter by an unfinished gate of masonry, guar by siponis, into a narrow, way, partly natural and partly excavated in the rock. on emergi g which you are ushered ot a sadden into the> scene of a most extraordinary spectacle. Before y , occuDViug the level bottom ot what seents to be a v^Bt crlwr, ii..

Descending from the Pasa then into the Camp, and proceeding on, you come to the former port of Aden. Here, on the south-east side of the promon tory the natural whIIs of the crater seem to be broken down, so as to admit ot immediate access to the sea in this quarter,Ja part of who.e moun a n wall, however, still remaining in the forrn of a'"By insular rock called Sirah.

Sirah on the sands at low ride or in boats at high tub, and clumber "P the rough sides of the ivl?t rock to a natural plan rm, on which is a mall battery und a corjtt dt guarde, 1 and continuing to ascend, you arrtve at a tnangu C citadel on The very summit ol the nmunUin. f'ere you are enabled to add to and correct the im .i-ifect knowledge ol the localities which you have acq^red previously- You discern a great number ol mountains, which are all sonnected together, but brauch out in various directions, in the most fantaslfc manner, sometime, in long ridges, some times in short spurs. Thus are f ormed a succession of exterior valleys None of these are wholly enclosed, and some are quite open. Some are verysmall and others large. In some cases the connexion between the moun tains is under water or covered with beach sand. And you begin now to doubt whether Aden be in fact situated at the bottom of a crater, or not rather in ithe of the irregular plains left by the singular formation of the mountain ridges and spurs. To the northeast you perceive the long line of beach which is the continuation of the main coast of Arabia, to which Aden is attached. Looking over the town and cwtnp towards the west, you find the view in that direction wholly cut on by a line of lolly mountains, called ?ham-shan, which consu late the highest summits of the promontory of

Aden. From the camp a military road leads up to the heights if lias hiu'urn, which stands opposite to .iirah towards the main land, and forms the recom mencement of the natural mountain wall on this side. This road proceeds along the heights, some times on the inner sides towards the camp and sometimes on the outer side towards the sea, and continues around to the main pass. From a bat tery placed at an anxle of (bis road, towards the highest nan of the ridge, you see beneath your feet a line of field-works on the outside, ruunjng across the sandy iathnids which unites Aden to tiie mum iund, and which forms in continuation the heacli of the. Arabian shore previously seen from Sirah Going now out through the puss, and taking die road which I spoke of as branching off to the left in coming to the pass from Steamer Point, yon pro ceed by this road along the_ head of Illack Hay un fertile lee of a high ridge of rocks, which are sepn rated at one point so as to allow you to pass through into an open plain heyond, and here you are on the , lOlside of Aden, upon th?? isthmus which connects u with the main land of Arabia. ' If you proceed by sea in front of Aden, vott pass 'am a succession of Cspes between Has Tarsliem Sirah separated from each other by little inlets ?off beaches, which run hack to the crotches ol the ttiouutiiitiM. with the lofty heights of Sham-shnn, jtid tiie old towers on lis summit, overtopping, like l-t giant sentinel, the whole of the promontory ol 'Aden. Finally, in order to connect nil these seperstc ,'r rts, arid to gam thus a c ear idea of the tout tn ??mtdeni Aden, it is necessary to asceod to the top >Sham-shaa. This mountain is one thousand seven hundred s nd ?seventy-six feet high. To reach its summit, you have the Gamp by an old p.ived military road, ; which winds up, zigzag, an acclivity several hum! [rod feet high, and brings you to an extensive tattle lland with occasional elevations upon it, over one of which it is necessary to climb in order to reach the immediate loot of Sham-shan. Objects previously doubtful, now begin to acquire distinctness; you perceive that all the lower heights, the aides of the mountain sputa you have passed, and the vast table land over which you are now proceeding, are alike covered with blackened lumps and fragments of volcanic scoriae, you are walking continually over the heaved up cinders ol a vast furnace; there is nothiug but stones beneath vour feet, and those etoues are nothing but scoiite, sometimes in the sctaggy iorm in whicn fire may be supimsed to leave them, nut more frequently in auuular masses cover ing miles of surface. The Bides of all the lesser mountains, Irom top to bottom, are thus eovcr> d with lumps of fragment and lava Whete ndeed the rock beneath is laid open by the pass age of mouuiaiti torrents or otherwise, you see thai under the heaps or ledges of volcanic tuf.i are other solid rocks, which form the main body of these lower mountains. But you perceive that the higher mountains all around have a diHereut appearance, looking as if Composed of rough Uyera of rocks. |You distingu sh in the distance a winding streak on the lace ot Sham-shan, which indicates the path by which your ascent is to continue. Making lor this, over the uneven surface of the table land, you come to a narrow ridge or spur, with precipitous sides, at the foot ol which another tract oi paved military road commences. This road, which is itself a very re maikahle work, runs along the narrow back of the ridge tor a long distance, sometimes in bteps, some times in long inclined plane*, until you reach the aide of the Sham-shan itself, up the face and over ihe inequalities of which the road proceeds, with hut a short interruption, until you attain the sum mit. In this last stage of the nscent you have been coming gradually in your mind to certain conclu sions concerning the formation of the mountains by which you are surrounded You are now above the scoriae-covered ridges and table lands. You see that Irom Sham-shan on the one side to Sirah on the other is a space ot between two aud thtee miles to length ; that the sides of Sham-shan above you are stratified ; that a continuous range of stratified rocks proceeds at a great height Irom Sham-shan towards Sirah on the left; and from Sham-bhaii towards Sirah on the right; that you are wholly surrounded, except at a small space adjoining Si rah, by a lofty wall of rock, either stratified or dis posed in tabular jayers; that in their highest putts all these mountains visibly and obviously face iu wards, so as to describe a hollow circle or eclipse; that their table or strata, though more or less disa bled or dislocated, yet have a general correspond ence and symmetry, which it ih impossible to mis take; ihat, indeed, you are within a vast ell ptical or circular basin, whose walled sides constitute mountains; that from the inner surface of the walls of this bastu sharp spurs extend inward like imper fect or ruptured radii, upon the back of one ol which you had for some time past been ; that you are clinging to (he inside of that basin ; that if the Camp ot Aden be in a crater, it is only in oue cor ner of, and at a lower level than, the main body ol ihe bottom ol thut crater, which is more than two miles in diameter, and whose walls consist in part of the lofty heights of Sham-shan. All these things become plain to the sight, on at length gaming trie summit of Sham-shan. You stand there, within the walls of an ancient lortrees, which crowns the summit, and whose walls of ma sonry, though broken and thrown down in part, yet show what it once was. You perceive that you are on the highest point of the promontory ot Aden, so ub to be able to dis tinguish not only the configuration of Aden itself, but to embrace in ihe circle of vision many leagues of the Indian Ocean on the southland on the other side the main land of Arabia, with its wide wastes of sand, its few scattered villages, and its distant mountains boundiug the horizou. Sham-shan you find, though it be apeak, yet is but a portion i f the periphery ot a gregR (lasin, of which you now see ihe outside as well afe the inside; on the inside scarped and tabled, wi.h soine scarped and tabled s.iurs, radiating inward in convergent huts, but leaving 011 the whole a vast basin, stretching oil southeastwardly towards Sirah; and on the out side, in like manner, scarped and tabled in part, bu? in partseudiag out numerous ridges of variable heights, with brauch ridges on the right hand and on the left, the longest aud highest of which ridges terminates near Has Tarshein, at the entrance oi Back Bay. Along the summits of this vast basin, from space to space, are smalt towers and continuing walls ol masonry, and tanks, and aqueducts, the remains ol the forulications constructed in the old tune by some former possessors of Aden, whose name has perished? careni quia vaie cacro ) but whose works remain, emulating in their great ness those which Nature herself had raised before human passions had come to co-operate with het in changing thetace of the earth. Such is tne general formation and the superficial aspect of Aden. ? To complete which general view, some particu lar tacts need 10 be mentioned. At and near Steamer Point you do not find any of the peculiar stratified appearance described ? The mountains there cousibi of the remoter spurs ol less comparative elevation, and with sides lor the most part covered with lava. In passing Irom Steamer Point to the Camp, on the last long plain, you first become aware, as I have already mention ed, that the steep ridges which now open on the sight, have a surface seemingly marked in lines, which, for uught that can be distinguished at a dis tance, arise Irom niff rences of color or ?ther ir regularities in the face of the mountain. A closer inspection shows you that these lines are tables or strata; that the alternate strata are ot a friable na ture, no as to have undergone much degradation from the action ot the atmosphere or some other cause, and to be thus broken into hollows, holes, and caves; that some of these layers are horizontal, and that others dip, but thnt they have no uniform ity, orrather no identity of inclination, seeming as it they had either been formed by causes of une qual action, or had bt en disturbed in their site by subsequent convulsions To which is to be added, in further explanation as to the lumps and masses of sconai or spongy lava which cover the whole surface of the lower moun tains and the to|* of the higher ones, that the ejert ed matter is all ol that color which denotes basal tic lava ; that the rocks ejected are of all forms and sizes, from large angular masses and broken fragments to more spongy lumps, whose surface, while it sometimes decays, yet blackens as it de cays; that nofdags of glassy lava are seen, nor is there any appearance on the surface of a superficial continuous lava stream. The more prevalent, although by no means the exclusive, appearance of ihe rocks is of a compact, rnther than of a granulated orcrystalline formation, and there are rome ledges ot au obviously tufa cious structure 1 any that thr appearance is not ex clusively compact; for at the Pats, where the rocks have been blasted, they show a trappean appear ance, as they do at sundry places on Mack May, where ihe mountain spurs look us if broken oil or cut down near the water, exposing the inferior for mation. hliam-ehan is incidentally spoken of us a lime stone rock in the only printed account of Aden which I have seen?that published by Capt. Haines, who surveyed this coast some years since very thoroughly, and greatly to the interests ot nautical arid geographical sctem e, and who is now the Mul ish Political Agent at Aden. But this intimation, it would seem, is an error. The mountains appear to be wholly volcanic. Couches ot ehell liineetoue occur, which will he referred to hereafter; hut tip se nre altogether inde|>eDdent ot the original mountains, Hnd obviously to be known as of com paratively recent formation. in the exposed fares of the rock* along Bark May thin veins of pure quartz occur frequently, whether veins of segregation or viens of injection 1 will not undertake to any; and buttons, nodules, or tuber cles of tins mineral are to be found nil over the mountains, looking as if dropjied here and there upon the rocks. But no metal or other mineral ri.ibstance ol commerci il value, I believe, has In en discovered at Aden. Even the lime which is us?-d there is made Irorn lunibs of coral, which are brought there either expressly for this purpose or as ballast But lis already hinted, shell limestone is to be found there in various places, disposed in ledges or couches around the bases of the moun tains, anil the process ot its continued formation is going on befor* the eye at all limes in a manner which merit elucidation. Aden, as part of Arabia, partakes of the peculiar climate of the country, winch is nearly destitute ot rivers. The climate is pure, clear ami dry There arc no sensible dews by night, and by day a cloud less Rim shines forth from the heavens, with tie r xeeption ot only u few days ot brief showers, during the whole course of the year. Unless win r< springs or other means ot irrigation exist, thetace of" the earth is parched and arid. No such means of irrigation occur among the mountains ot Aden. All the fresh water used tlime is obtained from deep wells dug in the earth, some of the wells yielding brackish water, and others water strongly impreg nated with sulphur. Many remains ot old tanks art to be seen at Aden for collecting rain water as if flows down the crotches ot the mountains, but they have been neglected and suffered to tall into decay. At any rate. Aden is comparatively desti tute of vegetation; a tew stunted trees, shrubs, and wild herbs only being tound in the mountains or ill the hollows over which the rain flows for the short period of the year when it visits these thirsty re gions. The comminuted earth of these mountains would readily form into soil it it were possible to give it moisture; but not having una in sulhcient quantitfes. the to;? arid sidtuolthe mountains seem to exhibit the appearance now which they have possessed for the uncounted ag?> elapsed since they tirst rose outot the earth or the m a L'ut ex tensive changes have occurred around their bases All these changes saetii to have sprung Irnrn lire ocean. Whether these volcanic mountains were formed under the seH, and ihrn heavi d up to itssutlace, ?r whether the volcanic action occurred in the fitst instance above tile surface of the 6ea1 these hre questions of theory tor others to judge. Bui the lit tle plains ol sand between the bases of the ridges speak for themselves, as manifest products ot the sea. On a cursory inspection of these plans, one may not be aware ol the nature of the sand, lie sees a plain of coarse sand filling the triangular spaces from the seashore to the loot #f the lulls, with a large quantity of shells and lumps of bl.ek stone scuttered over its sutlace, Hnd dors not stop at first to scrutinize the composition of that sund. In proceeding to insfiect the buses of the mountains in various places near to the sea, he discerns ledges of superficial rock, with shells and lumps of scomr imbedded in it; and on carelully examining this rock, he ascertains that it is composed ol shells triturated into sand mixed with sonic little esnh if the mountains, nnd costuming in it not only lumis of stone, but shells in every stage of their possible condition, from entire ones to Irsgrntnts in the form ol the minutest powder. Una induces fur ther investigation, and leads to the ascertainment of a class of curious tacts. Of the various sand beaches occurring between the successive points of rock formed by the ends of the ridges 11s they extend out towards the water, by which Aden is almost surrounded, si me are on the outside, exposed to the unbroken foice of the whole Indian Ocean : others are on the shores ol Back Bay, where the sea is nearly land-locked ; and others again are in the intermediate ttute, as on the beach between Has Tarshcin and l>as M?r bat, nnd on the beach of the old port ol Aden. On comparing the sand of these respective localities, you find mat it is alike composed of broken shells with a very small admixture of foreign matter; that, where, the beach ia less exposed, the sand ir more or less com ran, according to circumstances, and consisting of fragments of she Is, obvtourl) seen to be such at the slightest glance ; that where the beach is not exposed to the flow and heat of the waves of the ocean, the shells arc le duced to the finest possible sand, blown about til the least breath ot air, and thrown up in downs as extensive as the natureofthegtoutid will adnni;but that in each and every case the sand is composed of broken shells. And accordingly ledges of rock may be found on these beaches, composed, as be tween llus Tarshein and lias Marbat, wholly ol more or less fine shell sand ; or, ns neurihe Steam boat bunjalow, composed ot a conglomeration ol sand, sconce, um shells. Behind Has Marbat the strata dip; and here is an examp e ot strata whiih, when viewed in front, seem horizontal, hut wltm examined on the side are peen to be inclined Whenever these ledges contain shells, they tire ob viously the same shell winch now occupy the ad joining wuters, and lie scattered along the beach ; and these ledges may be seen in every stHge ol growth, from shell rock, so imperfectly compacted as to crumble in the hand, to shell rock which only the hardest blow of the hammer can break. And, as these seas abound in shell and coral, here is to be seen the beginning and something of the pro gress of the existence of lime and limestone. By putting all these visible facts in relation with one another, we may conjecture with reasonable certainty what was, at a certain time, the condi tion of these mountains, and some of the changes which they have since undergone. We may sup pose that, in some past epoch, Aden nnd the ocean stood here together in solitary gtandeur; both, per haps, boiling up and foaming with primordial fires Aden being a rock inlet, wholly surrounded by the ocean, which washed on every side the dark flunks and under-sea foundations of Sham-shan. The ocean at lengih brgantotrrm with unliving inhabi tants, which performed their stated function of re production, and then died, leaving tbei: corul and shell exuvtni to collect 111 their rocky sea-beds, un til, by the agitation of the waters, they were bro ken to fragments through mutual collision, which accumulated, and were thrown up in sand on the edge of the sea, and appeared tu little beaches and downs between the shorter ridges, and, at length, in the lapse of many ages, gtew up into the wide plains of sand ana of sand-rock which constitute the shores of Aden. 1 am, very iaithfully yours.

Since the publication of the blue book which let us into the myste'i'.i of China, parliamentary lite rature has tur?ished the world with nothing bo read able as the minutes of evidence, taken by the belect committee of the Commons on gaming Not in deed, that it turniehes any detailed account of the rascalities of the hazard table, the rogueries of the turf, or temptations ul clubs. Lord Palmeriton, who relieved the tedium ot unofficial hie by preei ding over the committee, prevemed its inqmrirt froni degenerating into unpleasant gossip, inconve nient personal disclosures, or invasiona ol privalt plav, and skillully turned the investigation into the more useful channel of remedial su.gestions. Ptnl the evidence is entertaining from the facts that do occasionally slip out, from the strange morality ill it in laid down in all ihe simplicity of sporting virtue, and trom the clashing statements, and striking in consistencies that escajie the witnesses, who, we may parenthetically remark, ure not, as a body, ex actly the petsons that might have been expected to have been examined. 'J he leading feature is cer tainly in these discrepancies, pur example:? According to the late Mr. Crocklord, who hud "no occupation, generally speaking, hut was con cerned in mines and inner things;" but who ad mitted, rather unwillingly, that " ?,t one period ol his life, he had some idea of the gambling habits contracted iathisu>wn,"few men have be< n ruined by gambling, so few that he could not say that lie ever " knew" any young man who had lost ?10,000 by nlay. (rambling, he thought, is made to bear the brunt ot other vices. " Many people," he complained with proper indignation at the viis deception, " will say they have been ruined b. gambling, who have been ruinedj by keeping women, arid having a box at the onera, and otlu r tilings of that kind; but they lay it all on gambling ' M< nstrous injustice! This vicarious burdr gambling is nearly as detestable as p aving w ill, ~ " "Mr. Tatter false dice. The large experience of Mr. Tattersall in horses, racing, and betting men, though not in personal belling, for he hunts his own losses to ??*> a year, testified "ihat very few were actually ruined onthetuif," but lie conceded that "there are more men ruined by night, by gambling, ui gambling houses, than in the day." According to John Lay, the great jockey and trainer, horse racing ispunty itself; he m vei knew a horse unfairly dealt with, or withdrawn from a race when he was well and fit to run; "a mm would not do such & thing." Has heard of the expression?"making n horse sate." Hut " we laugh ill it when we hear people talk of it, because we know that it is not done " Much of the saim opinion is the equally renowned John Hcott.

Hoth Dro iiiios, however, watch the horses confided to then care to protect them from injury; and the latin John has a shrewdsusjncion that once upon a tin r u favorite for the Derby in hi* stables wubdrugged; at all events, he lost the race. Mr. J (? Dixon, i cheesemonger, who seems "to know a tt ing <: two," though th ? Hon. Cat it.
