ERSONS who need rest from labour, either mental or physical,

can always secure a profitable change by arranging for a temporary sojourn in

" Edina, Scotia's darling seat." The pride of Scotland, Edinburgh, will continue to maintain her prestige while travellers are found who appreciate cultured society, historical relics, and a highly romantic natural situation. The city possesses every gratification to allure and detain educated visitors. Nature enters into an alliance with literature, scierce, and art, to render the city favoured and famous.

Observant English visitors who walk out into Edinburgh for the first time, notice what a different aspect the town presents from some other capitals with which they are familiar. There is a classical and refined look about the New Town with its gardens, Scott's monument, museum, and picture gallery, quite unique and striking, and which can never be seen in great commercial centres. The pedestrians, the young women not excepted, include a large proportion of students, and carry a literary air. Even the shopkeepers look studentish, and in many instances are persons of respectable attainments. Then how thickly strewn are the relics of the past on this famous historical site—from the ancient little chapel

, wherein "good Queen Margaret” prayed, on the top of Castlerock, to the now dilapidated pulpit of John Knox, or the murderous Grass Market " Maiden ” in the antiquarian museum. Dr. Guthric
