From the Boston Journal.
SOUADArA, June 25, 1840.
give you an account, as far as information 1
has yet reached us, of an eruption of the f
burning mountain Kloeb, about 70 miles 1,
from thi.-It occurred on the night of the c
16th of May. The first symptoms wereI
a tremnlons motion of the earth in the vi. f
cinity of thie mountain, thea several re.
ports like dlistant cannonading, and then
the fiamues burst forth, followed by streams I
of' burning lava, stones and ashes-a sight !I
once seen never to be forgotton. So sud. I
den was the eruption, that no steps conld (
be taken by the inhabitants of the vii ilaes
in the neighsborhood to esca p' the impein.
dinmg danger. Shortly amfter the flume j
burst fort h, there came down the sides of
the mountain a stream of lava, mixed ithl I
red hot stones, sand and mud, aid carry. I
ing everything it met with in its course to '
the river. Huge trees, rocks, villages, I
aninals, nll were swept beforre it; und E
when this mass reached the river, it cau.|
sed wide-spread ruin.
A portion of thme stream from thme .era. I
ter fell into the river K~onto, residency I'
Malang, and the wvater in the river inslan.
tly rose linloen to twenty feet, by which
the village of Kesembon had thirty acres
of rie fields flooded, and the grain in- I
stantly killed4 In this village, five men I
lost their lives, and besides these, sixteen'
belonging to an adjoining village, (Sam.
bla Redjo) were missed. Down this river
(the Konto) came trees of large sizse. as at.
5s~dlbn Taloes, botih wild and tame, ti.
