FEOM AN OLD CONTBEBUTOR.
V -UNIBR iAiaj ERIE.
Ob a stroll throUglTthe western por
tion of Cleveland my mind was di
rected toward the tunnel which is
now being constructed under Lake
Erie, for the purpose of supplying the
city with a purer article of water than
is now obtained from the muddy por
tion of the lake contiguous to the
After conversing awhile with the
superintendent of the contract, I en
quired if it was permissable for a
stranger to visit the tunnel, to which
he replied that it usually was not ; but
that if I desired to go down he would
accompany me in person and show
me through. He took a torch lamp
in his hand, ordered up the carriage
on which Ave stepped and descended
seventy-eight feet below the surface
of terra Jinna into the dark regions
below, reminding me of the many les
sons I had heard in my younger days
respecting the dismal and dangerous
abode of the unrighteous
As Ave landed from the carriage I
cast my eyes toward the end of the
work Avhere the laborers are engaged,
and as if miles in the distance beheld
only a glimmering lightas of a single
candle, although the lights were from
the torches of all the workmen.
The shaf. is constructed with brick
and cast iron "Avails, whilst the tunnel
is surrounded Avith a circular wall
eight inches thick and five feet in di
ameter. The digger gets twenty-fi-e cents
and the bricklayer fifty cents per
hour, and work day and night

be one and a quarter miles in length,
reaching out to the clear blue waters.
Once since the work commenced the
water and sand broke in upon them
as from a spring in a sand pocket be
neath the tunnel, but which was
stopped without much damage except
deay aud a little extra labor.
This is a, ponderous wooden struc
ture, forty-seven feet in height and
ejghty feet in diameter. It was built
on land, safely launched into the river

intended position, which creates suffi
cient interest Jo induce excursionists
to employ steamers to accompany the
When located it will be lilled with
water xmd stone, and thereby.settled
to the bottom. In its central opening
tubular iron castings will be sunk,
creating a shaft or well about eighty
feet in depth, where they will com
mence tunnelling to meet the compa
ny -working from the shore. The
clay will be thrown around the crib,
thereby creating an artificial island
upon which a dwelling and light
house will be erected
OVER THE LAKE.
The city is now furnished with wa
ter from the lake by steam power,
which it throws up through a tower
one hundred and seventy feet in
height, over ten thousand barrels of
water per day. The water goes up
through one pipe, falls into another at
the top of the tower, which forces it
into the reservoir about a half mile
After acquiring much practical in
formation on the subject of water
supply, I commenced the ascent of
the stairs which winds closely around
the forcing pipe to the top of the tow
er. Here is obtained a magnificent
view of the lake, the waters of which
were about two hundred feet below
where I was comfortably standing,
from which position a beautiful view
was had of the entire city and its sur
roundings of mauufactories, farms,
and places artistically arranged for the
amusements requisite for the citizen

A BEAR HUNT IN LAPLAND.
A peasant generally goes out in
search of his trail, and having found
it, goes in a ring some miles in cir
cumference, to make sure of having
him in it, he contracts his cir
cle, till he comes to the retreat of the
animal. Weeks are sometimes spent
in this search; the peasantry are
summoned to a skall by the landshof
oding or Governor of the province,
and put under the direction of the
jogmostare, or ranger of the district,
who marshals thiviMjd--ceni mauds

armi'd with whatever weapon they
.can procure. Though opposed singly
to a whole host ,the bear often spreads
havdc among his assaiiants. Every
ball that enters his huge carcass, but
adds fire to his fury, and woe to the
individual who his wrath has singled
out. It ceases to be a mere passtime,
and nothing but the greatest self-possession
can save hfm from a miserable
death. While at Haruosand I saw a
representation of an event that took
place at a skall in that neighborhood,
in 1831, and shows, that bear-hunting
mut be quite equal to tiger-hunting
in excitement and peril. The bear on
this occasion was very large ; nothing
like an American bear, with which
an Indian can grapple, but an enor
mous beast able to carry off a pony
under his arm. His temper, probably
never very good had been ruffled, by
ten shots lodged in different parts of
his body, all present entrenched them
selves, and awaited some desperate
effort on his part, should not a lucky
shot give him his quietus. At this
moment a man, bolder than his com
panions, advancing before them, the
bear rushed upon him, tore the gun
from his hands, and began to wound
him with his tremendious claws. The
wretched man was unable to contend
with his muscular antagonist; already
his wounds were letting out his life,
when a youn g Norrlander, unable to
look quietly on rushed to his assis
tance. Besides the danger which he,
himself, incurred, and which, of
course, he had no feeling of, there
was some danger of shooting the bear
without hitting the man. As he ad
vanced the bear rose on its hind legs
to meet its new opponent ; his victim
droDned before him : the Norrlander
seized the favorable opportunity, rais
his gun with both arms high above
his head, to bring it in a horrizontal
nosition on a level with the bear's,
and trusting more to feeling than to
sight, discharged his piece. An im
mediate death wound could alone save
either from their enemy. The success
which the brave man deserved atten
ded him, and the ball passed through
the brain of the bear, which fell dead
on the rescued man.

Dr. Livingston naa written tnree
years ago, that he had found a tribe
in Africa that dressed as follows :
The Dayous are beautiful women,
with exquisite complexion and fine
forms, and they dress iu the niost per
fect taste. They wear short dresses
reaching to the ankle. Upon the
forehead is placed a small hat, the
front of which rests upon the nose,
they take large bags of hair and wool
saturate them with butter, and hang
them on the back of the head, cover
ing the neck. Upon, the small of the
back they tie a bunch of cotton cloth,
colored and cut into strips. Their
shoes are beauties, Loming to a point
at the toe, and having a sharp point
ed heel placed in the middle of the
foot. This makes the foot very small
in anpearance, and the wearer would
tip over forward but for the bags on
the head and back. Each woman,
when she goes out carries a large
plaintain leal to keep oil tue sun,
which she holds by the stem, between
the thumb and fore finger, crooking
her elbow from her body at an angle
of ninety. The effect is more beauti
ful than you can imagine! The gait
of the women is particularly admira
ble. The heavy ones have difficulty
in keeping their balance, but the
light ones pick their way along as
prettily as hens walk over hot ashes".

of the Dayous is really democratic,
the rnler being chosen annually by a
vote of the people, but it is said the

Berlin, sowing death and' terror' be
fore it. '.'' t
...This arm was invented two .years
ago, and experiments with the first
motile we're made with the greatest
secrecy at Vincennes and Mendon.
To proent spies obtaining informa
tion, or getting a glimpse of the gun,
or rather mitrailleur, a cordon of
troops surrounded the place where tho
experiments were being carried on,
out of view of the inventor and the
gentlemen forming the commission
appointed by the Emperor to test the
merits of the arm, with orders to al
low no one to pass. The arm when
approved was manufactured in the
Vosges, thesamcsurveiliance and cau
tion being observed. As soon as tho
gUns were ready they were packed in
boxes, which were sealed and sent to
the various arsenals. . No instructions
were given in its use till three weeks
ago, when four men in each regiment
were conducted secretly to a conven
ient spot and taught how to ma
ccuvre it. A gentleman, now in this
cityt who had a relative employed on
the commission above referred, "State
that all ho would vouchsafe to divulgo
on the subject of the arm in that it is
on tho Gatlin principle of small cali
bre, and fs used to repel like moun
tain howitzers, it has no carriage and

coil. This arm must notbe confound
ed with the ordinary mitrailleur or
GntHn gun, which is mounted on a
carriage, t or mrst it be supposed that
it possessed equal powers of destruc
tion. lulcxhe former can bo used
by placing it on the sides of a square,
or at intervals along a cdlumu, to re
pel cavalry or mi advance In, colum,
the latter can be used as a field, bat
tery, and with deadly effect." . Tho
range, too, of the two engines of war
is different. Our sphinx has only a
range, as will have been observed, of
3,000 yards, -while the mitrailleur.
.propremcnl dite can be used at from

th.vwrsMtrHiifiir wq may cito -tho
resale of acpyj w tits made with it at
Sat'ory a'slinaTtline back. Three hun
dred old cavalry horses were packed
in a field a distance of-1,200 merits
from the gun, and thre minutes after
the other had been given to "turn tho
coffee mill" not one remained stand
ing. The- next day the experiment
was repeated under battle auspices, as
the gunner had been drilled to prefec
tion in the use of the arm. Five hun
dred rosscs were this time operated on
J arid in 90 seconds they' Were- lying
ueau uii uiu uuiu.
Another authority gives tho follow
ing description pf the new' arm;
"It is a light 37-barreIed' gurf, ar
ranged that its barrels lnay be dis
charged simultaneously or consecu
tively. The thirty-seventh cartridges,
intended for one charge, are contain
ed in a small box. A steel plate, with
corresponding holes', is placed on 'the
open box, which is then reversed, and
the catridge, full point foremost into
their respective holes. The loaded
Elate is then introduced 'into the
reech slot, and when the breech is
closed by a lever, a number of steel
pins, pressed by spiral springs, aro
only prevented from striking the per
cussion arrangements iri-tfie cartrid
ges by a plate in frontofthem. When
this case is moved slowly by a handle,
the cartridges are fired one by .one.
If the plate is withdrawn rapidly thoy
follow each other so quickly that their
discharge is all but simultaneous.
The invention is said to be well ad
apted for uso in forts and probably in
ships, as well as in other permanent
places of defense and offense, but that
its carriage and management present
obstacles to its general uso in the field.
In its capacity for wholesale firing at
least it resembles the ""coffee mill
gun" which was invented early in our
own war, but which the war depart
ment at Washington, we believe, de
clined to purchase aud discarded as a
failure. In vbat respect it failed was
never officially stated.
"The success of the Mitrailleur "in
field service is yet to be established.
The Prussians, however, view it with
some curiousity and concern, if not
with apprehension, siuce they have
ofleren, according to late dispatches,
a reward of five thousand thalers t'he
soiaiers wuo may nrst captura one
these extraordinary weapons."

a singular phenomenon, made its ap
pearance in the sky to tiie north-east,
and was observed by sevesai persons
in different parts of the city. The
sky was perfectly clear and the' stars
shining brightly, whoa suddenly an
object of an oblong shape a cloud
