Of course, there are exceptions. On the 17th, ato P.

Another style of na tive is alongsiae ? the men woaring long hair rolled up behind wt^h a circular tortoise shell comb, like woven, ?? -hat you und it a difficult thing to distin guish them from the ottier gender.

The only things you see there, however, are a few etuuted rini anion trees: but the ride along the snore was the best, the whole li istau .e shaded by groves of coc?a and beetle nut trees: and the little that: hed aotlagee or hub of the Singalese give an interesting picture to those unaccustomed to the island. We went beyond the grove, to " see the elephint " draw stone to'where a new bridge is being built across one of the little rivers Hemming, we visited oue or two of the Buddhist temples, none of which b<>re any comparison to those in China: gaudy pictures on the walls, without any idea of perspective, repre senting all the chractenstks of their creed, were the only things noticeable. We also visited the Kng'ish and the Dutch burial place*, where the number id tombs tell that the fate of ma" is the same in every land, but that some climates shorten life. John Black, a Scotsman, who has been a resident here for msuy years, is the representative of the United Mates, and the time will be long distant when he h is any one to oppose him a' Washington, for I fancy that there an few Americans desirous of locating in (>a!Je; fur the arrival and departures of the Company's Sioats, and the occasional anpearance of s freight seeking ship is all you have to break the inono'ony ot living there, or adding commissions to your account. Point D* (ialle is a walied city, and though built so long ago, the fort ramparts and embankments are still strong, and show little decay.

The city seraglio of the Pasha is as dirty and uninviting outside as the Custo q House at Dublin; but j on 8 -e obliged to take off your shoes before you cuii cress ihe inlaid palace floor.

Ilis eldest son, Ibrahim Pasha, did not survive him, and \bas Pasha, who n ade bimseli notorious by keeping a harem of b >ys, was asf-asHinated by two of them, who had become eulons of his favors.

Said Pasha's Improvement* -Railway Progress in Egypt ? Donkey Buys at the Pyramids? A Look at the Great Wwuters. Srid Pasha deserved much credit for boilding so good a railway, and for introducing carriages more comfortable than you ?cnerall> and; but his transit I arrangements are disgraceful. There seems to be do head nor tail to anything. At Cairo, in the aMe hands of the Superintendent, Mr. lielt.s, an English man, the baggage of the overland is received and despatched with more e >m; bat even there my trunk till went wrong, althoigh the laLJs wero distinctly punted. Each camel across the desert brings about six or seven trunk*, and with a cara van of three or lour hundred camels, there needs must be more or less confusion. The baggage train came through yesterday, and I am glad enough to find Try packages, which should have beeu at Cairo. We make but one change between the two cities, and that is where we cross the Nile in an Englifah steamer, which cune very near sink ing by overloading her. The changing of the freight into the boat, and from the boat into the cars on the opposite side, would make a hermit groan with laughter. Every movement shoves the cart before the horse. Four or live strapping fall grown Arar?s are to be teen urging and whipping 011 a dozen little ragged boys, who tag away at the cotton bales with all their strength, tne me a taking no share of the labor. While this farce was being euacted, the head Shiek came oat, and one of the largest of the men was seized by the other four and thrown down on his face, while the Sheik gave him a tremendous beating with his caw across his back. When the man got up he assisted in bastinadoing the rest of his compa nions, who had just been whipping him. After wards they all went lazily to work till the old man got out of sight, when they went to boating the b jys as before. I never saw a more dirty, shittless set of able bodied men. We were detained nearly two hours to allow Said Pasha to get away in his des patch carriage. Banners were flying, guns roar ilk and regiments marching ull the while, to the maitial airs of Arab musiciau*. During thin gay pngennt there were about one hundred and th ii ty of our Indian party shivering on the bunks of the Nile, consigning in our misery the Pasha and his satellites to uuy place but Alex andiia. We count distance in this country by hours; lefore the railway, with cauiel or donKey, it was three miles to the hoar. Now, if yon ask how far it is to Cairo, you aie told eight hours. The rail in laid down through the alluvial soil that larders <>d the Delta, and the road required but little grading. The whole entei price is tins private pro perty of the I 'tuba. in fact, ever si n< e that start ling edict of Mehcmet All, that all Kgytian property belonged to the government? trgo, bimseli ? every eute#fl%<c. every uudei taking, every improvement in the kingdom belong* exclusively to the reigniug dynasty.

Af ?r our de parture from the chief Oriental city, oar ride was di\ entitled with Oriental fruit tn.<"i and Oriental grain plantation* und cotton olants, growing luxu riantly ui the bla< k loamy soil. 1 he s|>arrows were as thick as locusts, and the road was titled with caravun* of country Arabs, going from and to the fair, which took place once a year.
