IB* J. B, MITCHELL} (For the " Herald.") IvT KOBE. The course through the Inlan Sea is well defined at night, numei ons lighthouses illuminating th way. I counted no less than ter everyone a picture in itself, wit; their white sides and building against the backgrounds of ric green. Being within 200 miles c Kobe, we caught a glimpse of a trai leaving for that city, and making il way in and out of the many wine ings of the coast-an interestiu sight, as it was the first train we ha seen in Japan. We passed numerov junks and other craft, but we n&lt; ticed a good many European rriuil built yachts. I believe the Japanec Government impose a tax on the ol lumbersome junk, with a view c replacing them with the more moe ern style, a further evidence of the d&lt; termination of the Japanese Goverr meut to westernise her dominions. We arrived in Kobe on Noven)be 24th, after an extremely pleasati run. I might here mention that Mi Kinematsu, who was returning hom after a course ...

I awaken the flowers To greet thc hours, As onward they ceaseless roll ; And the lark Eoars above, Like a winged young love, To receive my warm kiss in his soul. With a downward sweep I descend to the deep, Like a comet with streaming hair ; I startle the shark Where he lies in the dark, And the devil-fuh deep in his lair. I attend on the spring, As my lord sod my king, And the stern winter flees from my spears ; And the snowdrop's pu e head, From its chilly white bed, At my whisper of gladness appears. I pursue Ibe pale muon From Jier silver throne, And the stars, 'neath my fierce glance, die ; The dews flee away, As I lead on the day, In chariots of mist, to the sky.
