Destruction of a City by an Earthquake.
The English papers reoeived by tho JFAna,
announce the entire destruction of the anoiont
eity of Erzroom, in Turkey, by repeated shocks
of earthquake within the last three months.
The first earthquake occurred June 1, and A
letter from ono of tho missionaries of tbe Amer
ican Board gires a vivid description of the first
great shock. He aays:
The first shook, which was not very aerere,
was felt about eight o'clock A; M., June 1,
and at 10 o'clock A. M. the following day
came the fearful earthquake, which laid in
ruins 2,001) housos, nearly destroying 1,51)0
more, and injuring 1,2(10 others; leaving (ac
cording to the acoounta of Turkish oflioials,)
over 1,300 houses unharmed bat I do not be
live that there are one hundred houses in
Erzroom as sound as they were before the
earthquake. The shock was not only felt
throughout the city, but the villages on the
plain, and even at Ilassan-Kallab, twenty
miles to the east.
According to official returns, three hundred
and eighty doad bodies have been taken out
from the ruins, about two hundred wounded,
and si.vty aro. missing. Tho heavy shock,
which did the mischief, is aaid to have con
tinued about oight seoonds, anil it waa followed
by throe others, less severe, on tho same day.
Shocks, moro or less severe, wcro also felt at
intervals during eight consecutive days, since
whioh there has been perfect quiet, and the
work of building and repairing ia now going
on as rapidly as possible.
It is a singular fact that the destruction
was almost entirely confined to the Moslem
quarter of the oity, and only twelvo Christians
lost thoir lives. None of our protestant friends
were injured, though sevoral barely escaped
with life. One woman, sister of our native
preacher, B. liohannes, feeling the waving to
and fro of the house, seized ber two little
children, and escaped ia time to see roof and
wall come down with a orash where she had
been sittiog. Part of another bouse, adjoining
ours, was crushed, but no one was harmed.
The two mission-houses wore injured, but not
very seriously. '
Border City Horse Fair—First Day.
PIQUA, OHIO, August 30, 1859.
This Fair is a great success. There is now
on the grounds some of tho finest stock in the
West. There ia more fast trotting stook bore
than has evor before assembled at any previous
fairs evor held in the State.
The great two mile and repeat race, however,
between "Big Wagoner," out of tbe old "Wag
oner," "Glondnle," out of old "Uloncoe," and
"Blue-Tailed Fly," out of "Grey Eagle," to
come off on Thursday, will be the great attrac
tion of the Fair. These horses are all from
the best stook the country has evor produced,
and bars all made their mark as first-class
racers. This race is creating an immense ex
citement, and will draw together the largest
crowd that has evor beretolbre assembled to
gether at a similar Fair.
Persons wishing to visit this Fair can leave
Cincinnati on tho early morning train and ar
rive at nine o'clock, A. M.j returning, leave
at six P. M.
Sparrows for New Zealand.
It appoars from the papers that, in Now
Zcalaud, the country, ut particular seasons, is
invadod by armies of caterpillars, which clear
off tho graiu crops as completely as if mowed
down by a scythe. With tho view of counter
acting this plague a novel importation has
linen made. It i thus noticed by tho Southern
Mr. Brodio hits shipped three hundred spar
rows on board the Smordjlth, carefully selected
from tho bust hedgerows in England. The
food alone, he informs w, put on board for
them, cost eighteen pounds. This sparrow
question has been a long standing joke in
Auckland; but tho necessity to farmers of small
birds to keep down the grub is admitted on nil
sides. There is no security in New Zealand
against tho invasion of myriads of caterpillars
which devastate tho crops. Mr. Brodio has ac
climatized" tho pheasant, which is abundant in
the North. The descent from' tho pheasant to
sparrows is somewhat of an anti-climax; but
should the latter multiply, the greatest benefit

The English Government are building a

rendy for sea by June next. Her dimensions
will be extreme length, three hundred and
eighty feet; breadth, fifty-eight feet: depth,
forty-one feet six inches, aud her tunnage
six thousand one hundred and seventy-seven
tuns. The weight of the empty hull will bo

will be nine hundred and fifty tuns. Sho
will carry nine hundred unit fifty tuna of

will amount to cloven hundred tuns more.
Thus, at sea, her total weight will bo about

Ho, Ridens, was ono of a party to ruu a girl

snys that a negro named Culvin was hung in
that county ou the preceding Wednesday, by
citizens ot Richmond and adjoining town

overseer named Bickors. The reason as
signed for thus dealing summarily with him,
is the fact that ho bad been subject at times
to alienation of mind, which might, in case
of a regular legal trial, have caused his ac
quittal. That ho was sane when the killing
took place, the testimony, such as could be
adduced, was conclusive A short time be
fore his execution he talked freely with two
ministers of the Gasjiel Messrs. Grant and
Black who asked him if ho had any idea, of
a future state. He merely said he waa going
to hell that there was no other hope or ex

Electricity Applied to War.
Mr. John Calvert has written from Paris
the following letter:
For many yenra I liavo been perfecting a
principle (casually alluded to myself t tho
meeting of the British Association nt Liver

like piirposeSi The jjxplosive properties nre
as yet only partially known, btlt I have dis
covered that metals in their electric fluid
state may be applied to a more offensive and
destructive cngino of warfare than man has
ever yet contemplated. Such a d iscovcry in
the hands of an ambitious man would go litr
to give him power over the wholo world;
while for mi industrious nation, whoso object
was only the protection of its rommerccthe
possession of such a nientisof rest faint won Id
go far to dtopel any attempts at aggression.
Discovered to the world, it might end nil war
fare, for who would be paid to ehconntcr tho
mortal effects of such a weapon, evcli should
they be provided with liko instruments them

seven miles, and on the return to the wu th of
the missiles thrown, the point of contact will

around all life would bt completely annihila

by any desiro of disposing of my discovery,
but 1 want to erect in England one of my
most powerful engines, nt the expense of thoso
who may voluntarily subscribe to its erec

Discovery of a New Motive Power.
The Paris correspondent of tho London ,ir
The announcement made in the Atcurn, of
Taris, of the discovory of a new motive power
which, upon experiment, has been found to be
entirely successful, has created a great sensa
tion. The discovory has been made by a young
workman named Jacob, a turner in copper, and
was tho result of an accident. While seeking
to iocroaso the power of his turning lathe, a new
means of power was suddenly rovealcd to him,
whereby hehBsbeen able, alone, without assis
tance, to construct a machine which increases
two hundred fold the labor of one man, and
may bo inoroasod to unlimited oxtcnt, Tho
Inventor, who has hitherto worked an athv, at
Escarbotia, baa been, of course, sent for at
Paris, and has already nearly completed
machine applicable to every species of industry.
If success should attend tho experiment, for
which it is understood ono of the great indus
trial capitalists furnishes tho money tbo dis
covery will put an end to all Btoatn power and
every other oxpensire action, and tho result is
waited for with the greatest anxiety in tho
manufacturing world. Alrondy have the pro
prietors of the spinning works at Schalfhausen
boon induced to come to Paris in order to hear

of tho Petersburg (Va.) Vcm, writing from tho
Montgomery Springs, Bays:
There was a large sale of slaves at Abing
don yesterday, and many persons went up
front bore to attend, but the prices at which
they sold kept off all the planters. The aver
age was considerably over one thousand dol
lars all round. An ordinary girl, fifteen years
of age, sold for sixteen hundred and fifty dol
lars. A oarpentor and a blacksmith sold each
for about twenty-five hundred dollars, and
faot such prices as they sold at wore never
heard of before anywhere.
Oi,n Bachklobs. A Philadelphia paper
says as the days grow shortor and colder, old
bachelors become more and more restless and
dissatisfied, and after a while a panacoa
sought for in a pair of dimples, a marriage
certificate, and five hundrod dollars' worth
household furniture, and congratulates tho
clergymen that the coming winter is fore
shadowed as one of unusual asperity, and
"marriage foes will bo plethoric."
Coal Oil. The manufacture of coal oil
kerosene is carried on very extensively all
over the country, and is said to be very profit
able, The highest yield of oil from coal
aaid to be ono hundred and ten vallons from
tun of coal. Some coala yield 1.. rery littlo oil
that the cost of mannfaoture makes it unprofit
able. The light from a single burner of coal
oil ia aaid to be equal to three or four sperm
oandlea. It is aold for about $1 60 a gallon.
A Japanese Printing-Office.
A Hong Kong correspondent of tho BoBlon
Traveller gives the following description of a
I nt onco pushed n heat , and crossing tho
little stone-nrcheil bridge, which unites I)e
sinia with Nticnsnki, i was soon in one of the
priucipnl streets, and opening a Inrgo closed
gaie 111 tue nign unu ninssivo wait on (lie
stret, stood in tho spacious court before the
printing estriblishmont. How much in con
trast the tnsto of tho I'agan Japanese with
that of tho Dutch Christians ! Elegant
shrubs and flowers adorned this court n
front, while in the rear of the building rose
tull pines and evergreen tri-es which stretched
their long, verdant anus over the building,
as if to adorn, protect, nnd bless it. Tho
structure itself is Bpscious, neat, and even
handsome, the roof being in the Chinese sty li'
of architecture in their temples, und covered
with tiles, interlacing, and bidding defiance
to water whilo tho lloors of two rooms in the
ollioe proper were covered with neat mats,
and surrounded by sliding paper walls, while
tho ceiling is of wood, handsomely painted.
Tho establishment belongs to the tlovern
tncnt, and is managed by tho Government,
whose ollicials were (seated, as iikuuI, on the
lloor, and doing little or Bulbing, siueo thirty
days were to be spent, according to usage, in
silenlly niouminir for the Emperor, Who had
just deceased, during which time all public
offices are closed and all public business sus-
penned, indeed, it. was quite uncertain
whether, in tlicee cireuuistuncos, I could gain
admittance. With the usual Japanese cour
tesy, however, the doors wcro opened, and I
wus freely and politely shown all the apart
ments and materials of tho establishment.
On one sidoof tho oflice was a hand-press,
of respectable tha and good condition, while
on the other side was a "power-press,"
moved by a wheel of litrgc diameter, in per
fect order, mid of sufficient sixo to print the
largest 6hceU usunlly struck ofl in the
United Suites. Tho press was not in motion,
for the reason before given, and the rollurs
wero suspended over the wall, and renins of
paper piled up near the press, and the work
men hanging about idle, as if they were
patiently waiting for the expiration of the
aays 01 mourning, to resume tneir moors.
Beside theso thero wus another press, of the
smallest dimensions, on which, when I made
a second visit, some time after, two men
were striking off two ocluvo pages of a new
Japanese work in natural history, the edition
consisting of thirty copies. II, was tho en
terprise of a young Japaneso doctor, who
had been instructed ly a Dutch physician
residing in the city. Stands and cases wero
arranged ns with us, one side of the office
huving tho Roman typo used in printing
books und pnmphlets in Dutch, and tho other
tho Japanese; lor types in tho Jupaucse char
acter arc now cast in Holland, and have dis
placed tho wooden blocks formerly used.
The boxes of the Japanese loiters were ar
ranged on the same principle as with us, but
in different order. 1 tried my hand in pick
ing up some of these strange characters, but
probably a good deal lo the divcrtiscmcitt of
the Japanese compositors. Tho types, both
Roman and Japanese, were almost new, and
everything indicated that the Japaneso were
fur ahead of tho Dutch in the typugniphicai
art, its widl us in everything elso.
Some of the papor uied in printing is thick,
white, and close, and receives a fine iiiipres.-ioii.
It is made neither of rags nor cotton, but of the
bark of a tree, called tho "paper mulberry,"
and is clienti us well as good. Tho printed
sheets wero hung up overhead to dry, just as
with us. A dozon or twocty hands are em
ployed at thn cuse and the pruss, who appeared
to be expert workmen, and were quite courte
ous. The establishment is managed entirely
by the Japanese, not a singlo Dutchman being
admitted either as superintendent or workman.
The Japaneso are almost universally readers,
having their schools established by law, and
books for the uso of tho scholars and the peo
ple. Most of theso hooks are small, nnd full
of tho most ludicrous illustrations, from which
Punch must have borrowed many of his ideas,
though inferior. Most of theso books arc, of
course, of littlo value in morals or science,
whilo not a few are licentious and obscene.
The Japanese have now got the idea that the
English is a unvorsal language, and the Dutch
of little value, from which impression, and a
very just one, tho young peoplo who aro des
tined to business, or are ainbitiom of political
distinction and honor, arc seized with a passion
to learn our language,
Littlo as tho Dutch have done for Christian
izing and civilizing Japan and rather they
have been the enddest curse ever inflicted on
any nation since the earth was inhabited
they were willing, for the sake of monoy, to
procure tbo printing materials from Holland
which the Jnpanose now use. The Japanese
will not need to sond abroad for them again,
since their own wonderful ingenuity is able to
provide them hereafter as they shall be needed.
I ought to have stated that I found a book
bindery close to the press.
Breadstuffs and Provisions.
The Socrotary of tho Treasury has furnished
an exhibit of the aggregate value of breadstuffs
exported to foreign countries from the United
States from 182S to 1:")S. We give tho state
ment for the last seventeen yours, beginning
with 1842. The importance of breadstuff's in
our export trade to Europe, ,Vc, is thus fully
shown, as well as tho part which salted pro
visions occupy iu our foreign export. The
shipment of b roads tu lis ia 18,rj-1357 exceeded
that of the famous famine year 1847, while
that of provisions was larger in lS.'i.'i-'ti than at
any previous or subsequent period. If we
could rely upon such an export (seventy-four
to seventy-soven millions annually) for the
future, it would givo a groat stimulus to pro
duction in our country.
