Blue Spring can be reached by
water from Cedar Keys and by
land from Ocala. The Ocala liv-
ery stables furnish visitors .with
horses and carriages, and Mr. Har-
ris, the polite landlord- of the
Ocala House, will give to'-stran-
gers the best directions to find
this fairy land.
After rowing over the spring and
examining every nook and corner,
I went ashore, pitched my camp
and prepared my supper. After a
beautiful sunset, the clear blue
sky changed gradually into an in-
tense dark blue, which was orna-
mented with myliads of twinkling
stars. The whole sky resembled
a vaulted canopy of dark blue
velvet, ornamented wtth golden
spots; and its reflection in the
azure blue water produceal%. be-
witching contrast.
The sublime beauty of the
scenery struck the corresponding
cords of my imagination and car-
ried me back to my youthfuldays
when I was sitting in the long
and cold winter nights of my dear
native 'State oft.Massachussetts,
and was reading by'the side ofea
comfortable fire- the fairy-talesi
which charmed my childish com-i
prehension. At that time I be-;
lieved all the fairy.-tales to fie
true and that really fairy-land%
r existed, and now in reality I have
found the identical ,tfairy-land.
i I have seen upon -the bosom ot
that beautiful sheet of water the
fairy-castle floating, or, better to
i say, rocking upon the ripples,
a which were produced fyy a gentle
zephyr, and the pirotltets of the
numerous mullets appeared to my
fancy like the graceful, I movements

of the nymphs ar d sirens, as they venerable slh.le-trees, which invite

To the Editor qf the Banner:
The Koran imposes upon every
true Mussulman the holy duty to
perform at least once during his
lifetime a pilgrimage to Mlecca and
Medina. A pilgrimage to any
other city or ta any other district
in Arabia would not sanctify the
Hadji. It is only Mecca and Me-
dina that purified the souls of the
true believers. .
In our enlightened age people
do not perform pilgrimages for tlhe
purification of their souls; it is,
only the wlfiure of' Iheir bodies
which indices then to becotw!:
Hadiis, and what Arabia it to t".,'
M oslem;, Florida is 4-! 1.;; i'..iir. .
Arabia has its M5.,-ea, with Ihe
sepulchre of the prophet, where
all soul-diseases, cominonly called
-.ca : ,ro ured; and .Florida pos-
set.sses its 0'cala, and th .u' desii-
tute of any dead or living saints,
it has a mild and salubrious air,'
enchanting seen'ry, excellent ac-
commodations, a-polite and oblig-
ing population, and -all.,daintiels
for the inner man. In al :aword,
Ocala is the Meccafor. the invalid
Hadji of North America.

readers I give the following de-
The pleasant little town of
