Most of the iittor, it appeara, are tall anl perdonable irieats, stalwart of framu :uid fresh of soul ; and the Pope, after thrae or four of them had made their obeisances, turned with a laugb to Cardinul Cullcn, aud' said : "I5ut yeur priests are uot priests, they are grenadiers !" and catching sigbt at the moment of the youuger M adíalo a very Siul amone his Broïh'ren - he added : "Grenadiers, I say, and there ootnea tbo captain of the grenadiers!" ■ ii Ml ■ '■ The cotton fnctory noar Columbus, Georgia, claims to owu the finest water power on tbis contiriont, as n considerable river bns a perpetual fall within 4 inile of iLi'j li et, and the current runa through'a natural tail way, with rock walls, 20 fcet wide and 15 feec deop ai low water.
