TiThe streets are too narrow, aud the traffic is too great for the width of the streets. The architec ture is good, but its beauties are obscured from view by thick coatings of a sooty substance. The sun is seldom seen in Lon don. I never saw it all the while I was there, but there isno dust, and this com pensates for a lot. The traffic in Londssn streets atonishes a Colonial, and also the wonderful manner in which it is managed. :The streets are laid with a kind of hard polished asphalt, on tihe top of wood bldhcks.

Oh, father far, as long as life will last, Would I this misery and woe endure, Than yield the mem'ries of the happy past, When thou, and happiness, and joy were mine. And o'er or hearts, love's binding wreath was cast, As though for ever 'twould our lives en twine. Oh, cruel fate, that forcd those bonds apart, Can'st thou revoke or change thy stern decree Pea...
