THE ANTIOCH EARTHQUAKE.-A letter
From Beyrout gives some statistics of the
work of the earthquake at Antiooh in
April last. Before the shock, there were
3,003 dwelling houses in the city. Of1
thoBe, 1,960 were rained, and 894 so
iamaged as to be uninhabitable, leaving
auly 149 in good condition. There were,
?esides, 1,331 other buildings-shops,
mosquea, cafes, factories, &0. Of these,
diere are left bat 349 shops, one mosque
ind one soap factory; so that of the
1,334 buildings of all kinds, only 500 are
left. The population was about 17,000,
->f whom 500 were killed and an equal
aumbor wounded. In Ludia, there ?rere
2,150 houses rained, and more than 300
persons were killed aud wounded. The
iraount contributed toward rebuilding
ihe city ia only about $4,500, whioh will
a ot go very far; but the Government has,
intil the present time, refused to allow
people to rebuild at all. The wintor is

MEXICO LOOKING UP.-The New York
Tribune has a letter from a correspond?

Lerdo de Trejada, as already noted, sig?
nalized his accession to the temporary
Presidency by a wise proclamation of
imuesty, which baa also been as wisely
icoepted by all the influential chiefs of
revolutionary movements. The an?
nouncement is also made that the people
ire tired of war- it was reasonable to
lappose they might have heen long ugo
-and disposed to concentrate their ef
'orta upon a government which shall
'epresent tho interests of tho whole
jountry. Tho correspondent confidently
tsserts that the eleotion of Senor Lerdo
s the best means for securing this desir?
able end. How long, however, if wo
udgo by the past, are Mexioans likely
o continuo in any such peaceful mood?

SOUTH CAROLINA.-The Republicans of

WHERE THE PARALLEL FAILS.-Tho
shameless style in whioh onr black-faced
or black-hearted public men are traffick?
ing for the honors of the oommouwealth
reminds a classical correspondent of the
Abbeville Press of the days when the of
lico of Emperor of the Roman Empire
was put up to the highest bidder at pub?
lic auction. Julianus purchased it for
tho prico of 5,000 draohmH to each
member of the Pnctorian Guard. He
paid the price, but lost his head and of?
fice in sixty days! Tho thing was so
shockingly monstrous that even the de?
generate Romans roso in mass against
tho' creature of their own corruption.
But J uliamie paid his own money; where?
as the modern monsters first betray the
people by robbing the publio coffers,
with or without the forms of law, and,
with tho people's money, buy tho peo?
ple's offices nguiu to enable them to .re?
new their robberies. Imperial Rome
must yield the palm for rascality to Co?
lumbia and her Radical ring.
FEMALE CLOWNS.-The advocates of
woman's rights have won a victory in
England. The time-honored relation of
circus clown has heretofore belonged ex?
clusively to the male sex. It is true
that of late years the down bas been
guilty of the weakness of being ashamed
of bis professional title, and has ambi?
tiously styled himself a "Shakspearean
jester" or a "classical humorist." Never?
theless he has never shown any disposi?
tion to abandon the ring, and no one
faucied that bo could be drawn out of it.
Now, however, it seems that at least one
woman has succeeded in dethroning the
masculine clown of an English circus. A
"renowned lady jester" now wears tue
motley in an English traveling circus,
und goes through the traditional busi?
ness of the profession. After this no
business or profession can hope to bold
ont against the intrusive ambition of the
strong-willed advocates of their sex's
A MAN 103 YEARS OLD COMMITS SUI?
CIDE.-It is quito astonishing to find a
man 103 years old bunging himself, as
Wm. George did at Rochester, 111., last
week; for since death at any vate must
be close at hand, the trouble of a rope,
of finding a place of suspension, and ad
justiug the baiter, seemed to be hardly
worth the taking. On the other hand,
it may reooncile us to being cut oil un?
timely at eighty or so, to know that
when a man gets into the hundreds he
doesn't find life particularly pleasant.
Still, if we have any reader who is 103
years old, we advise him to be patient.
What little is left of bis mortal coil will
shuttle itself off soon enough.
PATENT CANNON.-Mr. Marshall Wood,
of Greenbrier County, West Va., has re?
ceived a patent, assigned to himself and
Mr. Thomas Mathews, of Lewisburg, for
the invention of the "machine gun,"
which with its eight barrels discharges
180 shots per minute. It is worked by a
lever, and being self-loading, the dis?
charges are oontiunous, and it is so con?
structed as to furnish perfect protection
to the operator or gunner from the balls
of the adversary.
Speaking of the dances at Saratoga,
Miss Grundy, says that the "Boston" has
taken the place of everything else al?
most,and in round dances the style of
holding the lady has altered slightly, be?
ing now about as affectionate as possi?
ble. Tho lady sticks her nose into the
gentleman's coat sleeve where it joins at
tho shoulder, and he rests his cheek
against her fair bair, foi ling tho pulse of
ber right wrist while she euaircles bis
neck with her arm.

A severe test of patriotism and loyalty
to Frauoe has been placed upon the
