[Washington Correspondence Cincinnati
The Hon. John won
golden opinions siuoe bis accession to
the House, from the quietness and un

the urbanity of bis disposition. Bis is
said to be one of the most genial of
men in his intercourse with his fellow

associate even with Ashley on terms of
equality, though his private opinion of
the Toledo member is not good.
He said, on a reeent occasion, in
confidential way, that he didn't see how
a man with Ashley's record of early life
could have the impudence to sit in
Congress; and there are few who will
question the wisdom of that remark, or
doubt its pertinence. Oue of the best

The Eruption of Vesuvius.
[Naples (Jan. 5) Cor. of the London Times.]
Vesuvius so far from diminishing in
its attraction, becomes daily more
menacing aud splendid. For several
days after Christmas the thnnders of
the mountain were so strong as to
break the windows in tbe neighbor
hood with the vibration, and the stones
which were ejected fell ' b&lf-wty
down the eone. Ion 1 may conceive,
therefore, what a height they attained.
On tbe 28tb there was a slight dimuni-
tion in tbe action of tbe mountain, and
then the shocks began as violent
as ever; tbe crater full of lava
boiled like a hnge . cauldron, while
columns of ashes and. crystals of an-
itotno. to soya my daily report wore

seut to a great elevation, uu crmay
lout aucther crater was formed near the
Great Cone, and in the direotion of
the Hermitage. Out of this has been
flowing ever since a river of liquid lava,
offering tbe most brilliant spectacle.
From tbe two craters issue two onrved
streams, forming an ellipse, meeting,
of course, at tbe bottom, and pouring
down towards Resina. At time tie
eutire interval between the streams
is filled wiih the fiery flood, from
the sides of which iHsue a thou

like a frightened and shivering bird

on and on, torn, half nude, the
