Thr Duration or Life Medical Scionce,
or perhaps incronsed intelligence and social
comfort, arising from the incroased wealth of
civilized nations, have dons something totvnrd
prolonging the terra of wan s existence. It is
shown in the oliioial returns of the life insur
ance companies of Great Britain, that the
average duration of human life is sufficiently
on the Increase to require a constant rcvisal of
the rates o! insurance. It this is tbo lact,
with nil the various "pathios" of the medimil
schools in full operation, wo do not think that
the doctors are deserving or ball the abuse they
popularly receive.

Something About Diamonds.

From an article in JIarjcr' Magazine under
the above title we take the following:
Tho first great diamond of tho world is "The
Great Mogul," toon by Tavernicr in Hi 05.
woighed in its rough stata seven hundred and
ninoty-thrce carats, and when out two hundred
nnd eighty carats. This diamond, from dos
oription, is supposed to be identical with tho
"Koh i-nnor," which osmeinto the possession
of England by conquest trom tho Sikhs in law.
Its history from its dinoovery has beon one
blood. The Russian diamond weighs one hun
dred and ninety -five carats, and is of the sue
of half of a pigeon's egg. It was sold in 1775
to Prince Gregory Orloff by a Persian merchant
for $54(1,000, and an annuity or 520,000. Noth
ing defiuito is known of its previous history.
It was probably the property of Nadir Shnh,
the conqueror of Iu'lia, stolon from him as
stole it from the Great Mogul. Tbo diamond
of tho Orand Duke of Tusoany weighs one hun
dred and thirty-nine carats; it is an inch deep
and an inch and a half ia dintneter, and has
equal in the world for purity of color and beauty
of form. - There is a legend that this stone was
originally bought at a Btand in Florence for
few cents, under the supposition that it waa
bit of crystal? The Regent, or Pitt diamond,
was purchased by Thomas Pitt, grandfather
William Pitt, while Governor of Madras, of
native merchant, for $72,000. In 174S it was
bouiibt by Louis XV for $:),:S75,0iH, and
now one of the French royal jewels. It is
Bauie diamond that was worn by Napoleon
in the hilt of his sword; it weighs one hundred
and thirty-six and three-fourths carats and
the same in depth and diameter as the Tuscan.
Another diamond, the "Etoile du Bud,"
found six years ago In Brazil, and ptirchased
by a Parisian firm, who have'just finished cut
ting it. The weight Is one hundred and twenty
five and a half carats, and it is said to be
the purost water and free from blemish.
"Koh-i-noor" sow weighs ono hundred
three carats, Us original woight having been
loduoed by an error iu cutting in 1852.
great diamond belonging to tbo King of Portu
gal. is still in arough state, and Is asserted
weigh sixteen hundred and eighty carats,
to be worth $30,000,001). It is larger than
egg, but many eminent judges believe it to
white topaz, and without any specific value.
The "Blue diamond," belonging to Mr. llopo,
the banker, of Amsterdam, weighs seventy
seven carats. The Pacha of Egypt owns
diamond weighing forty-nine oarats.
Piggott diamond weighs forty-seven oarats.
was bronght from India by Earl Piggott,
disposed of it by raffle, valuing it at $150,000.
It was drawn by a lady who sold it to the Paoha
of Egypt a most sensible woman in our opin
ion, and doubtless "a jowol to' her husband."
Tho "Sancy" diamond weighs thirty-nine
oarats the "Polar Stat" thirty-two; both
among the crown jewels of France.
Something About Diamonds. Another Child Lost in the Woods--
Narrow Escape from Death.
The Fotorson (N. J.) Guardian, noticing
the finding of a little girl who had wandored
Into the woods at West Milford, and remained
from Monday till Thursday before she was
disoovorod, says:
When found, five miles away, she was in a
famished oondition, and ravenously devoured
some bread which her discoverers happened to
have in their possession. Bordering the house
of her parents is a spring or brook, where the
family washing is usually done. While the
mother was at the brook, washing, the little
one, aged about three and a half years, wot
playing about the bushes with a child some
what older. As tho bushes were quite thick
and the country back mountainous and unin
habited, it proved impossible to find the lost
child, and she would undoubtedly have per
ished but for lior accidental discovery by a
farmer and his man, who wore going over the
mountains to cat a little plot of grass, whon
they saw tho little thing trying to got away
through tho underbrush, lier loot woro bare,
and, with her arms, wera all soratched nnd
wounded by briars and brush, by which they
had been torn. Upon offering her a piece of
bread from thoir dinner-pail, she Bnatched It
and devoured It almost ravenously. Her little
hood she hod kept upon her head, although it
had beon untied alt the while; it is singular
that during the days and nights spent In tho
woods she had kopt this little bood. She was
found in a direct line five miles from home; but
how far she may have traveled in her wander
ings to get that distance away can not bo told.
She must have gone ovor rocky placen, where
the was in constant danger of tumbling over
precipices, and where rattlesnakes are so thick
as to keep men and boys in fear from their
proximity. She had also forcod her way
through briars, over pwnmpn, and through
thick scrub districts, wbero only huntsmen
penetrate, for the country throughout is the
wildest nnd most impenetrable. She was so
young as to be without fear, but must havo
suffered terribly from hunger and from the
pains ol her lacerated limbs.
Streams and Showers of Fire.
A correspondent in Naples gays of Vesu
vius :
I have sent you no report of his doings for
some time, though at the beginning of the week:
thesides of the mountain appeared to be in a
fearful state. Toward the 20th of tho lust
month the crater in the direction of the Her
mitage was tolorahly quiet; it was perfectly
white, being oovered with mlmnrino. Toward
Boscnrealo the mountain was throwing out
bombs, with the sound as if itwereof artillery,
which made the whole crater tremble.
Near the Plato di Ginostre there was a grotto
twelve palms in bight, and three hundred
paces perhaps in length; out of it came a cur
rent of lava; "it traveled so rapidly," Eiy 8 the
guide, "that I was compelled to lly." The
crater in the direction of Pompeii was at that
time throwing out fire and hot stones ; at the
Fosbo Grande thore were twenty-two currents of
lava; at the Tironi ten others; and at the Rivo di
Qunglis twelve additional streams, which occa
sioned great damage. On Tuesday last the
lava flowed down most copiously, and it was a
piteous sight to witness tho small proprietors,
who watohod its course and wept bitterly. On
tho 3d of August, the streams, which numbered
perhaps one hundred and twenty-four, ceased
entirely, and the mountain, whioh, on tho day
before had boon, on the side facing Naples, a
large bod of lire, was now a mass of black ash.
On the night of the 4th, however, two fresh
streams burst out in the direction of tho Gines
tre, and are now running down upon Torre del
Greco like Bt reams of water.
Up to this time, eighty small proprietors
have lost their land. Someof the most striking
features in the history of the mountain is the
caprice of its movements. Ono day It is
raging, blazing all over, and the noxt day it is
as silent as death, and its existence only indi
cated by a thin black smoke rising from the
summit.

New Railroad Rovjtb to thr West. An
other railroad line from East to West, through
tho interior of Pennsylvania, is about to bo
opened. The New York ZVioims says that it
has undoubtod information that Mr. Cullcn,
tho President of the Rending Railroad Com
pany,his consented to enter into an arrange
mentby which in a few days through pas
senger and freight trains will bo running
over his lobanon Valley Branch, and East
Pennsylvania Railroad, from Jersey City nnd
Elizubethport, to all points iu tho West nnd
South-west. This is a now route, and cer
tainly a very important one to Now York,
Tlio 2Vi'iiiie adds:
It is ono hundred anil forty-Qvo miles
nearer to Cincinnati and St. Louis by this
route than by cither tho Aew ork Central
or Erie, nnd two hundred and seventy-six
nearer Cleveland and Chicago, and points
west thereof. Over it passengers may bo
taken to the far West without change of cars,
and freight can be locked up in the cars at
Jersey City or Elizabothport, and landed at
Cincinnati, St. Louis, Cloveland, Chicago nud
Iowa City without break of bulk or tranship
merit. As this now routo will be open inn
few days for through business, we shall -vory
soon' see what enact it will have upon our
two great New York linos, the Central and
Eric. In winter, when theso more northern
routes aro moro or less blocked up, as they
of ton are, this now line (like the Baltimore
and Ohio Rood) will be clonr from such ob
structions. As Mr. Cullon has consented to
mate 'the desired arrangements, we presume
no more will bo heard of tho Allenlown and
Auburn Road ns a rival line to the Lebanon
Vallev branch of the Reading Road, for the
through business, and for tho coal trado
tuo main road.

Iupostant Decision iif Vihoinia. The
Court of Appeals have unanimously affirmed
the j ndgmen t of the Circuit Court in this county
in the ease of Sanger e. the Central Railroad
Company. At the November term, 1856, of
the Circuit Court of Augusta, Jacob Sanger
recovered a verdict for $0,000 damages for in
juries received by tbo plaintiff while a passen
ger on theoars of thedefendant. The cars wore
thrown off the track by a large stone left lying
near the rail, by the carelessness of tome hands
in the employment of the contractors who
were "ballasting" the road, and the plaintiff
had his log broken. At the trial the company
contended that they wore not responsible for
the acts of the hands In the employment of
their contractors. The Judge (Thompson)
held that they wore, and on this point theoase
went up. This is the first case in Virginia
settling the oxtcnt of the liability of railroad
eompanies as passenger carriers, and it holds
them up to tho most rigorous responsibility.
Tho judgment amounts to over $7,000 at this
time, exolusivo of oounrcl fees paid by the com-
Staunton Spectator.
Isoit Wealth op Missouri. The amonntof
Iron ore in the iron region of the State of Mis
souri is estimated as follows : Iron Mountain.
228 feet high, covering 500 acres, ono mass of
specular ore, weighing 230,187,275 tuns;
average yield at furnace 5S per cent., or 128,
90 t,9;l0 tuns of pure iron. Pilot Knob, next
in richness, is estimated to contain 1 .'1,1)72,77'!
tuns of ore, or 7,000,000 tunj of pure iron.
These two deposits will famish about 136,000,
000 tuns of iron, the ore of which all lies above
the natural surface: of the country, easily
mined, and furnishing the best of metal.
Railroad iron, 70 pounds to tho yard, takes
1,232 tuns to tho mils, and all the railroads in
the United States would tuko of that weight of
rails about 3,500,000 tuns of iron, or 1-40 of
the deposit above spoken of. This is only the
ore abovo the surface.
