As a sort of advance guard thero came a mob
of half-naked men, shouting, yelling, howling.
Eomo whirled round and round, tossing their
arm aloft as they whirled ; some wero foaming
at the mouth, others had snakes coiled round
their necks, suakes banging from between their
tcetb, snakes twintcd anil iHiiievxnl iMiawr. l!:.-ir

headed with henry iron balls, who kent stiinnlnir i

pieces of the sharp Jugged steel, attached by ;
chains to the ball, began to fly round and round, '
and then they made n feint to bring the whirling j
balls so near their necks as to lash and gash i
mne, mouth and eyre with tho revolving blades ; j
a reint which, however, was not carried into ac-
tion, as the police seled them and pushed them I
on. I
As the harsh strains of the band came sharper !
and clearer, the yelling grew wore frantic, the
idiouts more like the inarticulate cries or animals j
In pain, !"! like those of human beings Aad
then the shrieks, yell and cries were drowned
lor a moment as trie coiiegea of dervfortf came
inarching past, each with tu .icrd banner and J
its band or music. There was aoinu utlemnt at
im'Kwly. but it teemed to me as if the masieUas '

Destructibility of the World.
Fclence dlsclcw that world and suns arc de
structible, and that aggregate humanity Itself
may 1m overtaken wllh sudden annihilation, if it
ha no spiritual exlitence and no Immaterial
sphere Jfnns have disappeared from tbe heav
ens by conflagration ; and the spectroscope ns'
lately proved that thousand on tbousanas oi
miles of hydrogen are blajtiog about our own
sun. A lato a last year, star in tbe constel
lation of the Northern Cniwn (f iJbwwt), sud
denly came lnmmoui aa a star of Ibe first magni
tude; tho spectroscope proved that it wat
another conflagration of hydrogen, and that tbo
increase tmift navo neen accompanied ny an in
crease of heat, which would augment 7M tlmei
the heat of all bodies within Its influence. Hich
an exnlolon on our sun (now actually subject
to a similar phenomena on n smaller, and yet n
stupendous scale I would cotuume to vapor onr
whole system. Tho fact that these catAstrophea
do take place In the heavens, is now indlsnnta
hie ; heretofore the sudden illumination and dls
appcrrancc of tuns could not bo explained, but
the new spectroscopic apparatus demonstrates
that tbey arc caused by Uio combustion of hy
drogen ran. St Peter' tdelure (lii:7.12) of the
fate of our system, laughed at by the skeptic, is
dually goioff on. by Ihelrown ncknowledge-
Tiuk. "When 1 look upon tho tomta of the
great, said AdulMin," every emotion or envy
dies in me. hen 1 read the epitaph of tho iM-aa

seo tho tombs of tho parents themselves I con

of six bnndred years bro, I consider that great
day when we shall all of us bo contemporaries,
and make our appearanco together."

Pima and Maricopa Indians, and I am induced to
beliuvu that General Thomas must hare received
his Information from unreliable sources. I was
agent for the Pima and Maricopa Indians for fix
years, nnd lived on their reservation for ten
years, and I am in constant corronpondence with
persons living in that auction of the country I if
any great change in the state or affairs had taken
pluce I should aiunrcdly have been informed
oi It.
The Pima and Maricopa are good Indians,
but, faithful to their savage InMineU. they want
all they can get. and gel all they can. and they
steal. loo; but inongn mer nave killed manr
Mexicans they hare not murdered any Atnerl

other also suffers with it ; when one geU a cold,

seven feet Ions; by four wide, was spread oa the
floor, and over it was laid an ample- inbe, very
long and heavily padded, and provided with

the head on the pillow. Every morning, the up
permost paper is taken off from the cushion, ex
