Asia Minor. —A correspondent of the “Times” writes: —“To the sportsman Asia Minor opens as splendid a field as it does to the capitalist and the farmer. Game of all kinds is abundant, not to speak of waterfowl and fish, both freshwater and marine, or of such exciting sport as bears, wolves, leopards, wild boars, jackals, and hyenas. Nowhere in the world, again, can the lover of nature enjoy a more exquisite variety of beautiful scenery. Mountain, plain, lake, river, and sea are all at bis command, in matchless beauty of form and picturesque variety. There are snow peaks for Alpine climbers to ascend, and elevated plateaus where the summer tourist may breathe as pure an air as in the Engadine. Within a few days’ distance for Smyrna, for instance, above Odemish, there is a large lake, of great beauty, lying about 4000 ft. above the sea level, among forests of walnut, apple, and olive, and surrounded by the rugged summits of Mount Timolus. No more perfect summer residence c-'uld be imagined. In fact, Asia Minor offers a wonderful variety of agreeable climates, suitable to every season of the j'oar and to every constitution. As for the interest it possesses for the historian, the archaeologist, and the geologist, that is a theme I need do no more than touch upon. At every step the traveller is met by some monument of t.ie past, historic or prehistoric, and countless treasures of Greek antiquity still lie buried under the soil.”
