rnk among tbe greatest families ia
Virginia. When the Actors and the
Va derbilti were day laborers, tbe
8tnyve?ants kept a "general (tore,"
apd Nicholas Fisb was the proprietor
cf a Datch tavern, Oir John fage, bar
onet, reigned over a principality in
the rich lowlands of Virginia. Sir,
John and h's mcceasors, as
well as his forelathers, were
people of extiavagant tastes. They
owned in Kosawetl, in Gloucester
conDty, by frths grandest colonial
manpioD in this country, by which the
Philipse house and the Oraigie men
tion sink into inhlgniilcanca, and not
even the great piles of Brandon and
Westover, on the James " liver, cou'd
really rival. As it was originally t'je
center was a vat cube, ninety feet
square, with semi circular wings ex
tending from the tidts, forming an
oval court yard. Every brick in it
was brought from Englnnd, as tbe
case frequently was in Virginia, whe.e
tbe tobacco ships brought English
bricks as ball st, and found a ready
sale for them among the English set
tlers in Virginia. I u the same county
as Kisewell, and near it, in a beautiful
old parish chnrch Abingdon of
which all the brick came from Eng
was tbe ambitions dream of a oerlain
Tage who married an heirrss, Mary
Mann. His son, Mann Pa.se, furnished
it. and then set out to enjoy bis money
after the old Virginia manner. He
had vast quantities ol silver plat, all
marked with the Page crest toree
starlings. Much of this vet remains
in ixiatsnie, Including a silver cas'or
with silver bottles and a pair of (ilver
candlesticks, the last in tbe po?sesion
of Dr. John Fage, professor of agri
culture at the University of Virginia.
Then they had superb family dia
monds, and these also eiia. But the
last Page who owned Rosewell had
twenty-one children, of whom fifteen
lived to be men and women, so that
there was long division in the family.
The diamond necklace had three
large pendants. Two of these, set as a
pair of eatrings, are now in posse salon
of a member of the family, and have
been valued at $1800. Likewise, the
Pages had a great fancy for family
portraits and extravagant tombBtonts.
Upon the last they have ex
hausted eulogy in magnifying the
defunct Pages, and in tbe family
burying ground at Rosewell one finds
ones self in a great awemblage
of worthies, renowced for their
moral and physical perfection, if their
epitaphs don't lie. Rosewell in the
old days was crammed with family
' portraits, and when the Pages were
forced to quit the place for a smaller
and plainer establishment, many of
the portraits were too large to be
hung in their new home, and were left
upon the Wills of the upper hall for
more than fifty years. Among these
was a baiutiful full-length of oae of
the ladies of Rosewell, who was the
daughter of the great Bishop Burnett.
She was celebtated for her fine hand,
and in her portrait she stands in a
blue eat In court drees with one hand
held out, tbe lace falling back and
showing tbe exquisite arm to the
elbow. Then there was Count Brown,
who won his title under Prince Eu
gene, and Sir John Pago in his Ox
ford cap and gown. Lesidsa innumera
ble hard favored old Pages in full bot
tomed wgs, scowling fiercely out of
tbeir hirsute ambush. The upper hall
had been originally a picture gallery.
The lower hall was an immense p ane,
with a staircase so broad and shallow
that tradition has it that a party
ol young blocdi arson) bled there
once drove a noise and gig up
tbe stairs. The upper hall is large
and imp aing, with corridors leading
off in U ft" rent directions. The o d
Pages v d-ntly believed in generous
ac ommodation, for in the center
buildii'g now the only one left
were the two balls, six large rooms,
besides filers and four corridets. The
third ttorv was never finished off, aa
the first attrious blow to tbe Page for
tune came from tbe building and fur
nishing ol Rosewell. They. did not
omit, however, to famish tbe wine
cellar, of which there is a perfect
labyrinth underneath. Tradition has
it that there was originally a fish pond
on the roof-a p'aolice common
enouih in building Eighth houses of
that ditr. The roof was of lead, end

revolution, paid a visit to Gen. Nelson
at the Nelson house. He wro:e enthu
siastically of ths refinement and hos

dom from drinking and gambling and
popular vices of the day.
Nobody could tay that ths Pages

when debtors were making ready to

who bad twenty-one children and a

boast tbst she never staved awake a

and drive off to balls and barbfeuesas
happy as a queen. She sang beauti

beauty, her sprigntline&s and her

considered that, aa the bosces bad a

they would order a general strike to

in both unions to do bo. The conee
qaence is that 200 derrick men have

TOE RESULT OF THE RECENT
A Scene of Fearful and Appalling
Desolation, Heightened by Act
Rotoroa letter in Auckland Herald:
I left Obinemutu in company with
Mr. Goldsmith, District Surveyor, and
after tbree boors' tiding tbrougb a
mountainous fern clay country,
reached tbe survey cauip at Pareberu
Bush, a few mi!es from the most south
em crater and el se to tbe edge of tbe
mud line. On the road from Ohine
motn very few indicators of tbe erup
tion can be observed. Cn the Mrer-
angl range, at tbe bass of which the
track lies, tbe .deposit ejected on toe
10th of June still remains, giving a
bluish tint to ths lofty hills. As Pare
beru is approached, however, tbe
signs of volcanic action become more
evident. Tbe ground is covered to
the depth of several inches with sco
ria, ssb and mud, and hers and there
eaitbquake shocks are met with.
These are caustd by a subsidence of
tbe grnund, aad in almnot every case
follow the liues of former depressions,
which are a very marked feature of
the country. It is also totewortby
that tbey invariably run northeast
and southwest tbe drection fol
lowed by tbe great fksure or
line of volcanic force. Toe cracks
vary in width from a few inches to
two or three feet, and in some places
are from three to four tet deep. After
a Bhort rett at the camp I started for
the southern era er, passing on my
way a part of the bush which has the
appearuncs of having been tuhjectud
to the full force of a scorching blast.
About half an hour's waking brings
you to the mud Hue i riper. Bebitd
you, lrgh brown fern clot ht s the ridges
and valleys, while in front ft far as
the eye can reach, stretches a mhihiy,
undulating ocean of dull gray mud, in
the center of which riies ao enormous
volume of pure white rt' am, while in
the background Tarawera, gashed snd
broken, tow em 38U0 feet into the sky.
A SCKNS OF FCABFCL DESOLATION,
of which no one who has not gazed
upon it can form tbe faiutwt concep
tion. In most places the mud is con
solidated, and is as hard as cement,
but here and there one conies acrots
nasty patches in which you sink at
every step over tbe knee - Walking
under eucn circumttancea ts excessive'
ly difficult and fatiguemg Tbe mud
clings like glue to tbe foot and leg,
and it requires considerable physical
strength to g n through these places.
I waa folly an hour crossing a patch of
soft mud, which, undor ordinary cir
cumstance, I could Lave walked over
in five or ten minutes. With tbe ex
ception of thete places, which can not
be avoided, walking, thouga laborious,
Presents no very great difficulty,
he surface is furrowed in all dirt c
t ons. presenting a simi'ar appearance
to plowed land, while deep cro-s
court es are frequently met witb. The
Bouthem crater is formed in a high
hill, tbe sides of which are c ivered
with fragments of rcck, principally
trachyte. Frcm the lip to tbe hot
lake at the bottom-of the crater Is
between 500 and tOO feet Very little
fcteam rites from this crater, but the
water in it wns boiling fuiiuuBly, and
lands ips were o i stantly occurring.
A little t) ths nir hwet ol this crater
is a hot lake of ab ut an ice in ex
tent. Tnis has baen railed Echo lake,
from the f ict c f a remarkable distinct
echo being heard hr. -Iu-.a Jaige

witb dirty colored fam The ides
of the lake are high and it ep, but at
one point they have bono broken
ihrouiih. and three weeks ago the
lake poured out enormous volumes of
rolling water at this point, which
formed a river of considerable dimen
sions, and its course can be distinctly
tiaced, the bauka being from twenty
lo thirty feet high in some places.
Since then, however, the lake hes
fallen, and is now several feet below
its firmer level. Divided Irom the
lake by a narrow strip of land is
THS HOLE IK-THB WALL CBATSR,
an enormous gap in the side ol the
bill. It is an ugly and fearrome place,
full of eteam and water of inkjr blac -nefs
This crater and the lake have a
playful habit of equating water and
throwing stones into each other. For
tuna'ely, however, the day I ttood
between them they r, frained from in
dulging iu this sport. All round the
hillsides, right down to the margin of
tbe lake where I was, tbe ground was
covered with indentions, marking
where heavy stones had fa len and
bmled themse ves in the mud, splash
ing in all diieci ins, and giving the
side of the hill iha appearance of hav
ing been bombarded. These depres
sions are circular in form, and vary
from four to thirty bet in circumfer
ence. The Rothomahana craters,
which lie beyond, were eendiag up a
beautiful cloud i f eteam, and thunder
ing away with grat aciiv ty. The
wind wai bitterly c 'Id, and swept over
tbe bleak, mud-covered hil's witu tre
mendous f rce, carrying with it clouds
of .pibbly duet. Hound tbe cone of
the southern crater the surfaca is bril
liancy bejeweled wiih beautiful white
crystals, which sparkle like diamonds
in the sunshine. The return to camp
was a fatiguing j lU'ney, and cross
ing the soft niu , which had
grown softer and ttick er than ever,
was a toilsome piece of work. Du'ing
the nigbt several shoikaof earthquake
were experienced, and the distant
rumbling of the cratt-rs founded clear
and uncanny in the rtil n ss "f the
midnight. In the Wiotai u Valley,
which lies between thete tao g ant
poaks, there is a new wonderland,
rich in the mi st marvelous creations
of a mysterious nature, and hitherto
unexplored bv tou ints. There are
huudreds of fuman lea, hot eprings,
steam holes lakes f t' e m Bt lovely
tints from rich green to deep blue

are no tracks in this Lew wondeiland,
and t'ave-'ing is eonm queutly some
what d'tticult, but I bolit ve it is the
intention of the g ivernineot to con
struct a good track through the va ley,
tbe whole of wnich ought ce'Uinly to
be procured for the us of the public.
Wtien proiierly opened out tbe region
will beyond qui stion bee me the thief'
attraction of the lake dbt ict. At
present, however, tbe vole noes are
the gretest sight, and will 0"g con
tinue to be bo to the Bi'ienist and the
mere sight fear. Tbey are objects
which are unique in t e world. I
have traversed the whole of the north
east side of .the enormous fis
sure from near Lake Okaro right
to tbe top of Mtiunt Tarawera,
and can therefore apek with some
amount of authority of the extraor
dinary character of the c uotry. The
journey occupied two days, bu' it is
poesible to do it in less t m. Follow
ing the edge of tbe fissure, after cross-
Ins at Echo lake, we reached a high
hill overlooking toe Roto ma bans cra
ters. Bunding upon tnis lotiy emi
nence, which I may name here as
Mount Herald, one bad a splendid
view right down into the craters,
many hundreds of feet below. The
dense volumes of emoke-like steam
rising slowly-from hundreds of differ
ent points, and merging into one
enormous cloud, formed a kaleido
scopic picture of inde-cribabN beauty.
Continuing our journey northward we
got into a deep water course, tbe ban) s
of wbich rise on either side to between
fifty and sixty feet. Getting down
this ta-row channel, which in p'ac-a
male a sheer descent o' from twelve
to twenty feet, was not a very agreea
ble experience, as tbe overhanging
masses of mud threatened to come
tumbling on tbe top of us any mo
ment. However, sliding, dropping,
leaping and scrambling, we succeeded
in getting out of it safely. It led
AM IMORMOrS AMPHITHSATXB
which has been blown oat of the slop
ing ridges wbich formerly ran down
to the margin of Rotomabn lake. The
wall like back of this amphitheater ia
firmed with marvelous regularity.
This great srea is filled with large
bowlders and tremendous masses of
rock. In the center, biasing out fom
a pile of broken iocs, is a stream of
b tiling water, which rushes witb great
velocity over tbe f agmentsof trachyte
which lie in its course, tintir g them a
rich, brilliant red, aod winds along the
arena and pours into one of tbeciat-rs,
where it is evaporated. Crossing tbU
veritable Waiwera river, which is
about twelve fee wide, reqnirel grt
cau ion to avo d setting ecalded. We
next crossed th Ked liver, a stream
of cold watar highly impregnated with
iron at d tinged tbe color of blood, and
pitch d our tent on a mud ledge on
the banks if what we Darned the Acid
river. Tbe water waa tepid and bad
an alum trg e, and, an we difcovared
later on, gives oil snflocating gases.
We were able to procure some firs
wood, and after some difficulty suc
ceeded in fl icing cold water the c dor
ol mud around us. We had tea, and
when it grew dark we turned in for the
night. None of us slept very soundly.
Tne tent got filled with tbe fumes
from the rive', wuici caused s stifling
sensation. The caters close to us
kept warning Incessantly, and the
spring which fd our Acid river
worked itiell up now and then into
an alarming s ate of activity, threaten
ing to send the et .ne wbich blocked
its vent flying around. To increase
our uneas ness we could hear the mud
baoki on the side falling with a loud
spits'! into tbe river at intervals.
During tbe night it was cold, and our
bed of mud was painfully hard. Soon
after daylight we were up, and as we
bad slept in our domes -some oi us
in our hats and mittens-our dressing
did not occupy much time. After
breakfast Mr. timith and myself, ac
companied by Hairy Lundius, started
Tbe sides of the mountain were cov
ered with fine icoriaash, at hard aa
rock, rendering it difficult to obtain a
footing. When near tbe top of the
mountain we came acro:-s a frozen
lake, and in the crevices there were
snow snd ice. The top of the moun
tain is beautifully colored by the
fumts from 'he st aming holes which
line tbe edge of tbe nature. Tbe de
posit on top is quite 500 feet in p'aces.
Standing on the edge oi tbe fissure we
could look down into the ctaters,
which are now quie cent. They are
divided from - one another by
narrow ridges. Great cracks rua
along the edga in some place,
threatening a tremecdonB landslip.
Gitrant o bowlders lie on the top and
in all directlocB, having been thrown
out of -the cra'ere, and, looking at
these en' moons masses, some idea can
be fo-med of the tremendous force
which must have been at work to
throw t'uem up from a depth of 700
feet. The desi ent was accomplished
in safety. On the way down we wit
nessed a treab eruption between ie
Hane o Toroa and Komit'. This new
volcano was electing stones and mud
to a great bight, snd emitting a large
clond of s eam. Previously there was
a small tepid lake here, which looked
innocent enongh, and no one would
have supposed it likely to be (he seat
of afresh outbreak. At tne loot or.
Tarawera. in the line of the chasm, a
baautiful green lake has been found.
We reached our tent on the Acid
river, and ss the weather looked
threatening, we therefore packed up,
and eacb witb a hogs swag on his
back started lor raretiem, wmcu we
reached at dark and juBtss the rain
began to come down in torrents.

S0LICI10R OF THE TREASURY'S
Decision In Beaard to Herebandle
Uonsisned to tbo Anglo-Call-fornla
Washington, September 25. Tbe
Anitlo-Caliiornia Bank, limited, re
cently protestt d to the Treasury De
partment against the action of the
Collector of Customs at San Francisco
in refuting to pet mit entries of im
ported merchandiee consigned to the
bank by bills of lading on the gronnl
that the bank ia a foreign corporation.
The question ws referred to the So
licitor of the Treasury, who has given
an opinion that tbe bank, which was
incorporated in Loudon and carries on
its business in this country through
two agents as managers caunot, under
the existing statute, he allowed to
make the entries in question, inas
much as the consignee would be a
non-resident forciug corporation with
none of its corporate cflicera re iriing
in tbe United Hates, and, therefore,
incapable of complying with tbe law
and regulations in the case of import
entries. The Solicitor futther advises
that in the rase of consignments of
goods to said bank the only course to
puisne is to treat the goods as on
claimed and to send them into tbe
feneral order store. Acting Secretary
airchild has instructed the Collector
to be governed by the views ol tbe Solicitor,
