IT is not our purpose to discourse in guidebook fashion of the old historic names and places of Genoa—to spoak of the Dorias and Spiuolas, the Fieschi and Grimaldi, or the Fregosi and Adorni; still less to give an account of that financial marvel, the Bank of St. George, once so famous when the Genoese were the bankers of Europe; or to describe the cathedral, with it« Holy Grail and mortuary relios of John the Baptist; or dilate upon the outer shabbiness and inner glories of the Annunziata and its sister churches; or give an inventory of its many palaces, the Doria, the Brignole, the Durazzo, the palaee of the king, and the rest. Are not all

these to be found in Bredeker and Murray f We propose rather to give fugitive glimpses of the proud old sea queen in her every-day dress and holiday attire; to speak of the full, throbbing life of the city of the living, and its unique, populous, pulseless city of the dead; and most of all with reference to some names that posterity will not willingly sutler to die.

Genoa is not a city to detain the tourist long with its sight-seeing, though it will probably be the one on his way southward and eastward where he will first encounter a decided flavor of Orientalism. It can boast no world-renowned masterpiece in art or

as the past, and hence a city of brilliant contrasts, where the old and the new civilizations meet in fierce though friendly encounter; where Italian via inertia and iudolence are stimulated by Anglo-Saxon enterprise and energy; where the shrill whistle of the locomotive Btartles the slumberous chimes of the monastery bells, and the mediaeval donkey brays out his solemu protest against the encroachments of the aggressive iron horse—a quaint, picturesque old city, with a subtle charm that grows upon you in spite of unfavorable first impressions, together with I know not what of transport in the majestic breadth of her glorious gulf, and the sublime sweep of its encircling mountains clad in purple and capped with snow.

Proudly seated upon her amphitheatre of vine-clad, olive-crowned hills, where many a sinuous fold gives interminable play to sunshine and shadow, for beauty of situation Genoa yields only to Naples and Constantinople in the Mediterranean. From her crescent-shapedport, with its forest of masts,

scarlet and gold, neither pen nor pencil can adequately portray.

The principal thoroughfare, which is to Genoa what the Grand Canal is to Venice, rambles along through the great heart of the city in so uncertain a fashion as to be constantly losing its name, if not its identity. Here La Superba holds her carnival, and displays her pomp and pageantry. From this great artery, all athrob with the pulses of a restless, surging crowd, vicoli branch off laterally—narrow winding streets sacred to everlasting shade, but not to silence—and the still more remarkable aalite—preposterous alleys set on end, where donkeys and sedans maintain their supremacy in spite of the nineteenth century—all together constituting a cunning net-work of streets so perplexing and involved that the city becomes a labyrinth, where the normal condition of every stranger without a guide is that of being lost.

Genoa is pre-eminently a city of magnificent vestibules. As you thread its narrow
