OiiLBANS. La., April 2-1. The
TJritish steamship Jesnioml lias arrived at
this port from Messina with a cargo of fruit.
Captain Kobson reports a remarkable discovery.
He says that about two hundred
miles to the westward of Madeira his
! tion was called to the singular appearance
! of the sea. The vater had a dark, muddv
look, and was covered with dead fish as
C 3RL jBl. C KEEI JFt. S -1 far as lho e' could reac,u Tluy were of
'several species, among them being noticed
mullet, cod and bass. .Soon alter entering
this field of dead fish he observed a faint
smoke on the horizon nearly ahead on the
! course of the vessel.
Early next morning the captain was
awakened by the second odicer, and in-'
formed that land had been sighted in the
j course of the steamer. He was greatly
surprised at this information, knowing
. that there was no land in this part of the
Atlantic. Upon going on deck, however,
he found that the report was correct. The
dim outlines of an island, broken by mountain
peaks, were visible even witho'ut the
use of a glass. Above it hung a cloud of
hinoke. The waiter was more turbid than
on the previous day, and the shoal of dead
Captain Kobson deemed it advisable to
take soundings, not expecting, however, to
get bottom, as the charts show a depth of
from two thousand to three thousand
fathoms in that portion of the Atlantic.
For some time the sounding was without
result, suddenly the line brought bottom
af fifty fathoms. When about four leagues
distant from the island the Jesmond came
to anchor in seven fathoms of water. The
island was located 25 degrees 40 minutes
west, 25 degrees north. Captain Robson
determined to make an exploration of the
strange land. The yawl was lowered and
thecaptain and one of his oilicers were
rowed to the island. A landing was effected
on the low coastof the western border,
where a convenient harbor was found for
the yawl. The captain and several of the
crew with some difficulty ascended the
declivity. The promontory seemed

a cnain oi mountains at a great distance
ofl', from which rose light columns of
smoke. The surface of the ground was
covered with pumice stone, and volcanic
debris, and entirely destitute of vegetation.
It was a desolate scene, where not
a single living thing was perceived.
The captain and his company started on
hi tour inland, but soon found their
gress impeded by yawning chasms. It
was, therefore, determined to return to
the beach and inspect the island from
! that side. While examining the base of
the cliff where the lock was
ured and twisted as if by some tremend
ous convulsion, and disclosed a bed of
breccia, a surprising discovery was made
by one of the sailors. On thrusting the
prong of a boathook into the loosened
mass of gravel, he dislodged a stone arrowhead.
Excited by this incident, the search
was continued, and other articles of stone
were discovered. A large excavation was
I made, and it was ascertained that the

A number of articles were exhumed,
such as bronze swords, rings, hammers,
carvings of heads and figures of birds and
animals, and two vases or jars with fragments
of bones, and one cranium almost
The most singular thing brought to view
was what appeared to be a mummy, contained
in a stone case. It was so incrusted
with volcanic deposits as to bo scarcely

difficulty was experienced in dislodging
the sarcophagus, which was finally taken
out whole, and,1 with the fossils, transported
to the steamer.

A Ship-Captain's Strange Discovery in (he
weather became less favorable, and he
could not aflord to spend more time at tho
island, he sailed for this port. He considers
that the new island was raised from
the sea by volcanic action, and that the
fish were killed by the poisonous gases
from the vocano. The captain thinks that,
the new land is a section of the immense
ridge known to exist in the Alantic, and
of which the Azores and Canaries are a
part. He took pleasure in exhibiting the
fossils and curious articles of which he was
the fortunate finder. The carved heads
are in the Egyptain style of sculpturing,
being distinguished by the veil or hood
which characterizes Egyptian figures.
The urns and vase? are spherical, with
large mouths, and upon them may be discerned
inscriptions in hieroglyphics. The
edges of the axes and arrow or spearheads
are blunted and jagged. The sword is a
straight weapon of bronze, with a cross-hilt.
Captain Robson proposes to send the
relics to the British Museum at London,
upon bis return to Liverpool.

Baba, Nawab, of Surat, is about to be

house was worthy of special
on. A number of elephants, horses,
and palkees led the prooossion. After
them came a number of female servants,
all in snow-white clothes, each bearing
in her hands a covered tray. About
fifty youths followed with rose-water decanters
of silver on silver salvers. Then
came Rvq hundred collies, some with magnificent
bedsteads, with curtains, pillow-",
&c; others with swings, benches, boxes,
cupboards of various designs, sofas, chair?,
tables, and, in short, all the paraphernal'a
of a modern house. These were followed
by seventy-five women, each carrying a
tray of sweetmeats. One hundred men
with cooking utensils brought up the rear.
Some of these men carried on their heads

The Paris Register relates this romantic
history : "Some twenty years ago a poorly-clad
boy entered the office of the secretary
of the Society of Fine Arts at Pesth, and
asked to see the incumbent. He was told
by a clerk that the important functionary
was absent. 'Never mind,' said the boy,
'he would not know me if he were here,
and I might just as well leave my petition
with you. I should be glad of some
pecuniary aid to enable mo to pursue my
career as an artist, and I bej you to say a
good word for me to the secretary.' The
society had a meeting a lew days later,
and the secretary on re-entering the office,
said to the clerk : 'I advocated the case
of your protege he has had sixty florins
granted him. What is the formula usually
put in the protocol ?' 'A mediocre talent,
was the reply. 'Well, then, write: A
mediocre talon t, to which not more than
sixty florins could begranted.' The young
aspirant took the money and went to
Vienna, where, but a few weeks after, he
exhibited a painting for which he received
120 florins. This first success was reported
to the society at Pes'h, and on hearing
of it the secretary remarked: 'That young
fellow seems to have ha 1 more in him
than we thought.' The "me liocre talent"
of twenty years ago is now the
