Trat Buch a very considerable cxten*ion of the facilities offered at the Town .quay is under consideration — indeed is almost an accomplished fact—will be ,iti«factory to all interested in tbe progress and advancement of Southampton. At the same time that the fosteririg a! pus com. qicr.ce receives due care, we hops the comfort of ▼inters will not, be altogether lost sight of. For some year* past their clsimi to attention bars been almost entirely disregarded, although : such visitors brlpg business Into the town in the most direct mi good desl of money in circuit us that while the pending alterations of the Town.quay are under debate, it might fairly enough be asked whether something ,.cooW not be done to keep the Royal Pier for visitors (who now arc largely increased by the nnmeroti yachts which again visit the river), and let tb< goods traffic pas* entirely over the Town-pier the Royal Pier has had its original charactei tefy much altered, and, as fsr ss visitors am proinen^dcrs sre concerned, very much for ib< worse. The Railway aud the Isle of Wight Companies have pretty well divided it bet wee them, and while ttiey have perhaps made it moi useful, they have not made It at all more orni mental. Certainly it it not nearly so pleasant lounge as it was in our younger days. Tb matter, we think, is well worth the considerate of the Board. To pot it plainly and bluntly-visitors to Southampton bring a good deal of money into it, and benefit a great many persons who, to say the least, have but a very problematical chance of ever seeing themselves a penny the better for all that commerce may do

Thb danner to the United States from the strength that Socialist or scmi-Socialist opinions have gained, is not, of course, from the possibility that they will ever become law, ss from the danger public credit will sustain from public men coquetting with these opinions. It must be remembered that the professional politicians furm an almost distinct class in the United States, and although not held in much esteem, thev arc (thanks to Democratic institutions) a much more potential body of persons than sny we have answering to them here. One great difference cornea from the fact that politics seldom put much money into an Englishman's pocket. Indiretly, of course, they help pushing lawyera to keep themselves before tbe public, and enable them to become judges and chancellors, but to most other men—even of tho most unscrupulous character—politics bring some notoriety perhaps—hot pell not at all. Those, indeed (and we believe they are much %hc more numerous class) who become politician, from fairly creditable motives, spend on politics in Englsnd more than they can ever hope to receive. In tbe States the reverse is the case. Congressmen are paid, and all the public offices are looked upon as so much spoil to be wrangled over by the victors in each successive political contest. Such men, ol course, will be profoundly indifferent to the dangers to the state from any tampering with public credit, and be keenly alive to tbe number of votes they may command by pretending to sympathise with any fresh delusion. There is, of course, a long step from Butler fraternising with Kearney and robbing the bond-bolders by taxing bonds in plain breach of the law. Bat the mere hint of such a possibility will have its effect on the loney market, and will very effectually binder

attention for tbe moment I, eoncen-ited on Afghanistan, and the wild and sterile country which stretches between the Indian and Penian frontiers is receiving all the attention that until I itely was lavished on Bulgaria and Armenia. The Russians have been good enough to devote ta some attention to a survey of the country, and with their usual considerate thoughtlnlriess where our interests are involved, have published the result of their investigations. Doubtless merely to guide our statesmen in arriving at j ist conclusions, and with no reservation of showing the world how much better informed they are than ourselves. The worst part of Afghanistan is decidedly the Afghans— they have much the manner* and customs of the dwellers in the " Debateable Land" between England and Scotland when things were at their worst there. Tbe only law is the strong hand— Thotm may tak* who havo the power, And thorn* may koep who can.
Possibly, and most probably however, a firm rule at head-quartera would soon conduce to-more mettled habits among the people. They are a bold and soldierly race, intelligent and enduring ; if our rule were accepted by them tbmy would be no mean acquisition to our empire, and their loyalty secured, would form no bad advanced guard toward, the Mu*cov,. As to tbi country, a good deal seems poor and bad, but tbi rest is veiy good indeed. The. northern par. •eems the be*t; there tbe land is most fertile, and the products most diversified. We don't suppose there it much opening for emigrant, from England ; but once a (top were put to the incessant robbery and oppreatioo which now goes on, population and pro,pcrily w^uld certainly Increase together.
That nne of the firm, indebted to the bcoken-down Scotch B»nk owed that eatablithment one million sine hundred thou,and pound, makes one regard tb* Beoteh ,y*em of bodde* with respectful admiration. Once upon a time such an amoant would have been a re*pectableaddi-*loa to the niUosal debt of * of *h*aWond cln.s. Now it U only one item in an account t Likewise and'also the question arises:—If ibi, was only their overdrawn account, at their bankers what did their business return, foot up ILtnn,t b"TC bcen * vefy »*upcndotn total. That aeven firms owed the Baftk five millions among them, will, of course, account Ibr the depoeftore' mtoey eery readily, What they.have done with it remain, to be teen. Most likely it is represented by sales of goods at a loss and by warehouse* filled to repletion with arUcles that arc ndw unsaleable.

On Ubaoiko.—Thm art of reading need not here b either defined or reoommeaded, but it may be utefb to throw oot a few very brisf hint* upon the subject. The first is that readers arm of three classes; those who simply te.«in all they re id,, without either selecting oi digesting it; those who retain nothing that th«y read those who retain what suits their ta*te or what they cat turn to account, lie this as it may, it tbould bo born i: mind by thome who would profit by what they read thai they should not proceed too rapidly, but *hodld real is, tbe idea* which come in *uooee*i6a before them, thoold pay oontiuued attention, and tbould mentally judge of what they read in regard to ttyla aa well at matter. Reading aloud it an eccompllthmeot, *uoee*t ia acquiring which depends partly upon natural gifts and partly upon study and practioe. Skill ilithi*{* most deairable; and the young abonld be carefully trained to It They should moderate the votoe according .to.lhf tite of the t^m or building and the number of hearers. The tone*, empbatu, tpeed, and other deUdl*, vary with the tnhJeo:. arid, Cleae of sompoaitioa. A nov,lshould not be read, Itke a termon, nor a sermon like a novel| poetry skwold not be read like prose, nor proem like 'poetry. ThS intonation* in dialoguee should be carefully attended to, so In kpeecbee. deacnptlon*, narratlved, 4a Every effort should be made master sn author's ideas, and to slprets them suitably, forcibly, and naturally.
