it will he a long time before the new character
of the anchorages can lie determined. Krom
one end of the island to the other extends a
chain of mountains, with peaks varying from
4,000 to 12,000 feet in altitude. In this chain
are no less than forty-six olcnnoes, twenty of
which have been active for many years. One
of these, Tenger, has the largest crater on the
globe, save that of Kilauea, in the Sandwich
Islands. In the recent eruption no less than
thirty oCthcsc mountains of fire vfefe in action.
The San Francisco Bulletin one of the
editors of which spent several v ears in Java
has a long editorial on the eruptions, from
which is taken a paragraph 1
In July, 18S2, no less than 20,000 persons
lost their lives by an eruption of ihc volcano
(ialunggong. The island is one of the most
densely populated areas in the the world. In
1S72 the imputation of Java was set downnt
17,298,200, or 327 persons to the square
mile, Java has about 50,000 wnisre miles of
territory. California has iSS.ySl square miles,
If the latter state were as populous as Java it
would contain not less than fifty million
icople. The former, however, has a tropical
nfllucnce of vegetation, it being situated only
ntiout five degrees south of the equator. A
great deal of the land has been made sterile
liy volcanic action. Still, It is one of the most
productive islands in the vtorld. Java colTce
is known in every commercial city. Kicc,
coilee, sugar, pepper, tea, nnd tobacco are the
principal products. There is a large Chinese
element in Java, as there Is in all the Islands
of the Indian Archipelago. There nie pro
bably not more than twenty thousand liuto-
penns in the island t but the munler of
Chinese, at the date of the recent eruption
could not have been much short of .1 (purler
of a million. Of this number twenty-five
thousand were destrojed by the earthquakes,
volcanic eruptions, and tidal waves.
Mr. Frank, I'ixle) in the San Francisco Ar
gonaut philosophies uiou the dieadful topic
as follows :
And If the worst account is lev than the
truth, and the calamity has overwhelmed and
destroyed this Island, with Us busy Industries,
its teeming imputation, its thousands of Kmo
neatis and hundreds of thousands of Asiatics,
its millions of native imputation, how little
will It intluence us In our dally pursuit of
Jin-twin, uui i-iijujiueius ui ociai me, our
money nvakhig vocations, and our race nnd
struggle to attain small ends I If the island
of Java, with all Its wealth and millions, shall
have sunk Into the depths of ocean, the
Mes.it Uabcuck. of the commercial house of
John l'.irrott & Co., may have to te-cast their
many peculations Ukhi the market price
of the world's coffee crop. Hut we of the
masses will only consider thr.inronvcnicncc
arising from the enhanced price of lice, sugar,
and colTce, and the n or Id will wag along not
sciioutly disturbed that tine of lis prominent
geographical suUUv Uions hat simply changed
from land to water. Vet some people think
themselves of inuiortancc.

From the Sydney Morning Herald of Ihc Gth
instant is taken the following:
The most severe shock of earlhriuake ever
experienced at Gislmrne, New Zealand, look
place on the morning of August 16, nt3o'clock,
followed by several minor ones. At first it
seemed as if some powder magazine had ex
plodcd, and the rcort and concussion caused
much consternation among timid people. In
Queensland, on August 29, the shock of nn
earthquake was felt at 3 a. in., extending along
the coast a far north as Kockhampton and in
land to Taroom. The area was very wide.
The wave direction was from S. W. to N. I'..,
and the disturbance lasted from 30 second in
some places to one minute in others. At llris
banc, Toowoomba, Marvliorough, nnd Uock
linrnpton it was particularly severe, buildings
oscillated to an alarming extent, bedstead
knocked against walls, and sleepers were
awakened in great fright. A tidal wave made
it apjicarancc al Northern New Zealand on
August 29, commencing at 4 a. in. The .sea
rushed in violently, but took several hours to
recede. The disturbance wasslightly percepti
ble nt 10 o'clock August 2S. A sharp shock of
earthquake wn felt at Patca at half-past 4,
about 100 miles north-west of Wellington.
News has been received from the island of Apia
to the effect that a violent hurricane has been
experienced among the islands, during which
the barque Ipeculador and several other ves
were loast A tidal wave S feet high was ob
served at Cainclton. People along the beach
had to run for their lives and boats were left
high and dry.
