Nkw Yoke, Drc 7. The dimcneiom of tho
a(ul calami! J liich lias lefillen the city of
Brooklrn, arid the conpqoent loss of life, have
not jet been realized. Enough is known, l ow
erer, to mate it certain that the catastrophe
ranks among the most fatal of the kiud erer re
corded. According to the ftatements or all
parties who profess to know anything as to the
origin of the fire, it began on the stage. A
piece of canvas, of which the tree., etc. were
made, was broken trom its fastenings and hung
from the flies, iramcdialefy over one of the bor
der lights near the centre of the stage. The
canvas had begnn to saoslder snd the paint on
it to crackle, Dd the carpenter was directed lo
ascend to one of the grooves and remove the
dangerous object. He could barely reach it with
his hand and he drew it hastily op. The ropid
motion through tbe air of the half-ignited and
bichly inflammable canvas caused it to burst into
a flame, which readily spread to tbe adjoining
material, eoaallr susceptible. All effort to ei-
liniruish the flames were abortive, and the car
penter had to retire to save his own life.
The deserimions riven bv persons who 'were
in the gallery of tbe theatre at the lime e-fthe
disaster is heartrending and horrible. Alfred A.
Jones gives the following account of the scene ;
I wu seated next to the front row, but seeing
that something was nron? on the stage, 1 moved
ud the entrance of the tier. While my bact
was turned shrieks were heard, and the mass of
peorile in the rallerv arose in wiid confusion. I
cannot describe the scene as it was. Tbey were
climbing over seals, gripping each other by
clothes, and struggling frantically to gel ahead
of one another. 1 saw one man smash a lellow
in the face who would not yield to him in the
passage, and a big powerful woman tore her way
through and came toward sue with scarcely any
clothes on her back and with blood slreaminc
from her nostrils. Two decent looting boys got
toirelber in the front row. and 1 saw them clam
bering over eeals and squeezing their bodies
throogh the crowd. One of them was thrown
down.- aDd the other tsrned round and called
him wildlv bv name. I cot down amour the Erst
that escaped, and did not wait to see what hap
A tall stout .man. who said he was a tract
man, gave a very vivid decriptlon ol the scene
when thf nproar becan. He said : I was seated
tu tbe aiIe about the middle of tbe gallery and
three or.four seats. from the front. 1 never saw
anything like it. All the people in the gallery
seemed to be crowding on top of one another.
There were .men who seemed perfectly frantic
The jells ana shrieks I shall never forget to my
dying day. My wife is down stairs," i.ne man
cried, out. Let me ret her out!" Another
msir.cned, ! Weife all safe if , you will only be
orderly," at the same timer however, he was
making most itrenous efforts to get through the
throne. 1 he weakest went down one alter ano-
ther, and the strongest rushed recklessly over
them. 1 could actually hear the bcues exacting
as men jumped on the writhing. strogsl'tDg and
helpless mass beneath them. 1 be cries mat as
cended amid the uproar were heartrending.
"MvGod! hav merer on me, one voice re
peated several times. a Ooe ,cian managed to
crawl from a heap of prostrate bodies, but the
struggling throng rushed aninst him and he spun
around toward me and fell almost at my feet. I
tried to lift him.- but he groaned once or twice,
gave, a few .gasps, .and all was over, yten I
firh' was to be life ordeaih,- J ctado for the
door. All I have been telling look place in a
few seconds, but there is a picture in my mind
I could not paint. When 1 got oat I walked
overjhe bodies three or four deep.
1 i Phillip Monser was among the very last to
get'out of the gallery. He gave the following
account ol the calamity : 1 got in irom me row
near the stage. 1 saw the fire from the very
first. As I looked up to the gallery the scene
was a most lemfic one.- 1 could conceive men
and boys were tearing one over the oiler. The
shrieks and oaths were aw tul. une man clam
people, he had a second time bee called wuh a
knowledge of its grave Tes-ponsibilitiea and diffi
culties, which no consideration bnt duty impelled
him to accept. He retarded the present hour in
South Carolina as a crisis at which no patriotic
citizen should shrink from any public post to
which be should be called. The present strug
gle is in defence of the foandation of our govern
ment. II we lail now, ine government w oouiu
Carolina will no longer rest on the consent of
the governed, expressed by a free vote ol the
majority of the people. If our opponents tri
cmpb, under phatever guise of legal forms, free
government in Ibe Stale is overthrown. He
said only cowardice or treachery can roo ine ivo
nublirans of victory. Xow. we shall witness the
consumation of cruel conspiracy by tho Demo
crats to overcome by brute force the will ol 20.
000 lawful voters. He denounced the conduct
of the Democratic campaign as a brutal outrage,
depending on fraud, proscription, inlimidalion
and murder. trade uampton naa saio tuai ne
held not only the peace of the Stale, but his
(Chamberlain's) life in his hands. This be did
not doubt. His life could be easily taken, but
nolbinr could make him abate bis hatred and

Soalh Carolina. A 11 other considerations nml

Isere are widely dinenng opinions among
physicists and geologists as lo the length of time
which has elapsed since the earth was in a mol
ten-condition. The Darwinian hypothesis of
development calls fur a very long period during
which life was developed on the earth, and geo
logists who iodine to- this -vien, make
much of the faultiuess of the geological record
which has left long gjpa of lime cnchrosicled.
This class of' geologists have roughly estimated
tbe age of life on the earth at ooe hundred mil
lions of years; but the Glasgow school of physi
cists, beaded by Sir William Thomson, have ad
vanced arguments, based on physical experiments
in the cooling of rocks, lo show thai the earth
can not have been more than ten million years
in cooling to its present state, Jrom the tempera
ture.of two, thousand degrees .cealrigrade. Sir
William Thomson has lately brought forward
new argument lor the short period based on the
demonstrated rigidity or the earth and the dimi
nution of its rate of rotation. It is evident that
tbe spheroidal figure of the earth was caused by
ue ruiauuuvu ils axis wuec to allium conuiuon.
At' least so modi, of the earth asls now fluid,
vizthe ocean, conforms itself to the spheroidal
figure which js due to the centrifugal action of
the earth s rotation. This centrifugal tendency
of matter at the earth's equator keeps the ocean
level several miles hisher at Ibis equator, con
sidered in relation lo the centre of tbe earth,
than at the poles. It is also evident that a
diminution of the earth's rate of rotation woald
tend lo reduce the protuberance at the equator
and rise the "water at the poles until finally, if
the earth were entirely without rotating move
ment, the-fluid on its surface would conform to
tbe outline of a perfect SDhere. Now Sir A m.
1 bomson demonstrated that the solid pari of the
earth iso rigid that even were its rotation velo-
city very much diminished the protuberance o!
the land at the equator would remain nearlv at

Tbe total vote of the United States at the
Presidential election of 1ST2 was 6,431.14!).
That year the four great Northern Stales New
York, Pennsylvania, Ohio, end Illinois-with the
two greatest of the old Southern Slates Mis
souri and Kentucky polled Ui.U'jJ voles, or
15 and 57-100ths (45.57) or the whole. Tht
year the same six Slates polled 3,578,853. This
is i b, i bo or ..14 per cent, very nearly, more
than they polled in 1S72. An equal per cent of
increase in the vote of the thirty seven States
wllich participated in the 18i2 election. leaving
Colorado out. gives a total vole for November
7. 1876. of 8.215,792, or an increase or 1,7S4,G43
over the i'lesideuiial vote four years ago. Al
lowing the ordinary yearly accretion of popula
tion throughout the country (J per cent), as
shown since 1850, for the two years Trom 1S70
to and including 1872, the vote of that year was
to the total population as 1 is 6tj. Applying
the same ratio lu ibe estimate ot total popula
tion in 1876, we have the astounding figures of
51,343,700 as tbe total population, this, of
course, is impossible. Tbero has been no such
ncrease. I he lact is that all over tbe union a
most extraordinary vole has been called out by
the excitinr character of tbe contest probably
as high as one vote to every five and one quar
ter or nve ano one-nun oi too wuoie population.

5521.240; Pennsylvania. 4 000 000; Ohio, 3,-
157.891; and Illinois, 2S4S.140. This ratio
would rive the six irreat btates above named a

Oh, Ain't That Anturnl.
Tbe following little incident which occurred

from A lien ton , accompanied by two or three of
her young and lively neices, was taking a vien
of the gems of art. it seems that a short time
before Ibey entered tbe annex, another young
lady totally unknown to Ihem, went in, and
either from sickness or fatigue laid grattlully
down nponone of the lounges, and closed her
eyes for a few moments. Just then the old lady
came along, and noticing the beautiful pose of
the graceiul bgure dimly, pnt on her glasses and
took a closer look at it. " Well, I declare, ain't
lhat too natural for anything," said she. I
wonder if thai is wax or just plaster." Tbe re
