nowhere; it was an accidental quality discov
ered by tasting. It had an almoudy, dry, bit
ter flavor, which rendered it of rare value to
mix; .because I must clearly understand (aud
it was only fair to tell me) that English sher
ry was a chemical compound, made, like a
French side-dish, of many ingredients, and of
various ages and quulitics of wines. In Xcrcs
there were five hundred thousand arrobas of
wine—thirty of which went to a bota (butt)
—made annually. This made tbirty-four thou
sand butts, nine thousand of which were of
first quality. Sherry is too strong and too
dear for Spaniards, and too feverish for the
climate. The best is, in Xcrcs, a dollar a bot
tle. Tbe best in the bodega is worth from
fifty to eighty guineas a butt; and, after in
surance, freight, and salcehurgcs, it stands

cellar (say) in BelgraveSquare. “How many

one hundred and twelve. This will bottle in

Here was a blow for my old friend Binns,
who opens a bottle of forty-eight shilling sher
ry'with the air of an antiquary unswathing a
mummy 1’haroab. Thought I, thc next time
the deluded man points to the oily stickiness
of his glass. I will leap up, seize him, and say,
in a hollow voice : “Binns, you arc tbe victim
of a life-long delusion; that stuff yon drink,-
you think is the juice of the Spanish grapes,
plucked by meu plaviug guitars and smoking
cigars; you call it, iu poetical moments, bot
tled sunlight, snufire, and so on; bab ! (after
the mannes of Napoleon) it is only a cheuiicul
compound made up of drags aud infusions,
like Daffy’s “elixir or James’s powder. It 5*
cooked up with boiled, tre-icley wine and bran
dy. It is a compound mixed front a dozen bar
rels, and made to order for a particular mar
ket. If the vines of Xercs grew till they got
black in tbe face, Binns, they could not yield
wine like your forty-eight shilling sherry."
Tbe Dou laughed, and said that certainly tbe
sherry wine district was very small; uot more
than twenty miles square. Therefore, it could
no yield honest wine enough even for half
London. The sherry grape grew only on
certain low, chalky hills, where tho earth, be
ing light-colored, is' not so much burnt—did
not chap and split so mnch by the son, as dark
er and heavier soils do. A mile beyond these
bills the grapes deteriorate. The older thc
plants the better; but the fewer the grapes.—
