The Mammoth Cave of Mexico.?
It iB'said that the mammoth Caca
huamilpa is the largest cave in the
world. Several persons who have
visited the Mammoth Cave of Ken?
tucky, and that of Cacahuamilpa,
in Mexico, pronounce the latter the
larger. A volcanic mountain, with
an extinct crater, covers this cave.
It is not described in guide books
or books of travel. It has, in fact,
never been adequately described.
Mr. Porter C. Bliss has twice exa?
mined and explored it, the last
time in February of the past year.
600 persons constituted the last
exploring party; they were pro?
vided with Bengal lights and scien?
tific appliances. After reaching a
level of perhaps fifty feet depth;
they proceeded three and three
quarter miles into the interior.
The roof was so high?a succession
of halls?that rockets often ex?
ploded before striking it. Laby?
rinthine passages leave the main
hall in every direction. Stalag?
mites and stalactites are abundant.
Below this cave, at a great depth,
are two other immense caves, from
which issues a branch of a great
river, uniting here. These two
rivers enter some five mileB distant
at the outside of the mountain,
flow parallel, and issue at last to?
gether. Vast quantities of bate
are the most numerous inhabitants
of these caverns.
A Russian claims to have disco?
vered a process for producing light
by electricity, which is thus de?
scribed: A small tube of glass, not
more than six inches in length, is
filled with a pencil of charcoal, the
air is exhausted, and the tube her?
metically sealed.. A moderate cur?
rent of electricity is then passed
through the charcoal from an ordi?
nary electro-magnetic machine,
causing it to glow with a very bril?
liant, but at the same time soft
light. It is stated that the char?
coal does not apparently suffer con?
sumption, but lasts for an indefi-1
nite period, and that the strength of
the current required is so small
that 200 of these lights, at. a con?
siderable distance apart, can be
easily maintained- by a single ma?
chine. The inventor claims that
he can light the whole city of St.
Petersburg, both, street lamps,
stores and private residences, by a
single fifteen horse-power machine,
with no greater cost than running
The steamer "William, belonging
to $he St. Lawrence Tan Company,
caught fire and was nearly destroy?
ed before the firemen got the
flames under control. Some mis?
creants cut her ropes and she
drifted into the stream, with thirty
men on board, and fearful loss
would have resulted but for the
arrival of a tug, which got her back
to the wharf. The loss is estimated
Collector Carpenter, of this Dis?
trict, recently sent out a raiding
party against the illicit whiskey
distillers of the upper Counties of
his District, and succeeded in cap?
turing seven stills, a large quantity
of whiskey, and five prisoners.
The party is still out, with the
prospect of making other captures.
The grand jury of, Anderson, in
their presentment, say: "We regret
to report that the Trial Justice
living in the fork does not do his
duty in trying to suppress tho illi?
cit .traffic in ? whiskey. Whiskey
wagons in that community have
become a great nuisance."
When we come to the second
centennial anniversary of, our na?
tional.independence, it will proba?
bly be written that the Indian race,
with ' the exception, perhaps, of a
few remnants in some outlying
frontier section, has passed away.

for Constttation, Headache, Pain in tho Shoulders, Dizziness, Sour
Stomach, bad taste in the Mouth, Bilious Attacks, Palpitation of the
Heart, Pain in the region of the Kidneys. Despondency, Gloom and
forebodings of evil; all of which are the offspring of a diseased Liver. *
If you feel Dull, Drowsy, Debilitated, kave frequent headache,
Mouth tastes badly, poor Appetite and Tongv.e Coated, you are suffer?

speedily and permanently.
The Liver, the largest organ in the body, is generally the seat of the
disease, and if not Regulated in time, great suffering, wretchedness
and DEATH will ensue.
