when the pi itol was fired, thn ball from

A NEW SENSATION.
The Erie Railway to be Brilliantly
Illuminated—A Plan to Effectually
Prevent Railroad Accidents of Night
From the New York World Aug 1.
Tho last sensation ftinde by the enter
prising Mr. JmtiM risky Jr., comptroller of
the Erie Kailwny, is the undertaking of a
plan by whtch It I proposed to mas ine
lino of the F.rie Hnilwnv. from the font of
Cliamlier street and Twenty-third street
to liuffalo nud Dunkirk, nn nnbrnken belt
of light nil throngh the dark nights, both
in summer and winter. The Ifergen tun
nel Is to be so brilliantly illuminated thai
upon a lowering day tho ere of tho pas
senger will be almost blinded a the train
emerge from tho month of the
tunnel, owing to tho dilVerence between
tho briirhl light of the tunnel and tho dull
rny of the son. The mean to be adopted
to carry out thfn great plan, and thus pre
cluding the possibility of nny further acci
dents on Hie ron.l on account oi onrsncss,
is in tho niuiliculioii of the electric light to
every locomotive on the line, and stationary
liulils nt the ferries, ill tho funnel, nnd at
dangerous curve nlong the roitc. The
nttention of (he F.rio company wns first enll
ed to consider this scheme, by Mr. F.. C,
Morse, nnd Mr. Fisk nt ouce nnthomod
him to go to work nnd see what could be
dono. Sir. Morso thereupon commenced
to make arrangement for the manufaclnre
of a large number of n largo number of the
electric lamp nt .Tersev Citv. and he is
quite confident that within three month
he will have Erie nil ablaze.
Mr. Morse claims to have niadn several
valuable discoveries and improvements in
connection with tho electric light. Ono in
vention claimed bv him Is a self-snstaining
uttorv. and another is a device tor making
tho carbon points, used to give the electric
light, bum for months without wasting
away. This electric light, it is taut by
those who have experimented with it, will
cast n shadow behind an opaque body at a
distorioo of teu miles. Hut when jarred by
the molion of tho locomotive, the intensity
or the light is diminished. Tho light will
illumine tho track for three miles ahead,
however, so that, w here the road i straight,
tho engineer can discern nny object
at thnt distance. Hy another in
genious device, the electricity used to run
tho lump will be collected by the (riclion
of the wheels ns tho trains nro in motion.
Two lights will be used for lighting llergen
(uniiol, with one in tho middle, ns the tun
nel is not straight, bnt curves. Other
lamps will then bo stationed at each end of
tho Puvonin ferry, which will throw a
broad belt of light noroas tho North river
every night, to gnido tho traveler safely
to his homo iu the metropolis. Theso
lights will, it is said, bo so intense that on
tho darkest foggy night there will bo no
danger of collision cn tho water, nny more
than in the daytime. Still more, it in pro
posed to fill Twenty-third street every night
witli a Hood of while light, from the North
river to tho Filth Avenue Hotel, so tlmt

An Immense Land Slide.
The town of Stockport, Columbia Co.,
N. V , was the scene of considerable excite
ment last week, on account of n gigantic
land slide, nnd thousands have visited the
spot. Tho place where tho phenomenon
occurred is located on the old post road,
near the confluence of the Kinderhook and
Clovornook, nbont Ave miles north of Hud
son. It comprises nearly flvo acres, nud
wns on an elevation nbovo a dry ravine. A
hill intervenes bet w ecu the ravine and the
ereelc on tho cast and north of a littlo less
than tho altitude of thnt which ci.ved in.
The crash took place about half past six
o'leek p. M. last Monday. Tho movement
was gradual, nud the snrfnee of the earth
undulated liko wave of tho ocean. No
miso wan heard until tho moving mass
struck tho bnsa of tho intervening hill,
when tliuro was a dull rumbling sound ru
seuiblin;; distant thunder, nnd a quivering
sen nation iiUo u Blight shock of an earth
quake. Tho earth caved in to a distance
of over eighty feet, and tho surface as in
dicated by feucus nnd tiees moved a dis
tance of over six hundred feet So gradual
was tho movement that it occupied nbont
half an hour, und tho sight is described as
sublime iu the extrcmo. Among tho most
marked incidents of thu phenomenon is the
fact that nn enk treo w hich stood by the
roadside was moved, with n section of the
fence, tn the bottom of tho ravine, n dis
tance of six hundred feet, nnd the tree and
truce nowBUiud as linn and upright as over.
Tho weaker trees, such us pine nnd hem
lock, were snapped oil' an though they were
piptstems; and some tree ol this nature

liko a wisp ol straw. Tho land is clay,
founded on quick-sand, with n soil surface
of Lot nmro thou two feet iu thickness. It
is understood that that the quick sand has
been mudiially washing away Iroui beneath.
and passed off into tho streams. The
copious showers of lust soring left tho stir
face a lucio shell, nud tho dry weather
which followed caused tho shell to crack
and finally full into the vacuum below. A
crevasse several inches iu width, titty feet
in length, aud deep beyond sounding, has
appeared on (he land adjoining the sunken
portion on thn south, ami lears are t utor'

Thero was a know storm at Mount

A slraime oeolonical phenomenon recent-
tv caused some excitement at Murat, Iu
France, a village situated between the val

A civil engineer hai caused a rectangular
well to be sunk to a dspth of fifty-three
metres throngh a stratum of hard tufa,
which covers the primitivo formation iu
that district. At this depth, which i in
significant compared to the shaft of a mine,

leaving tho spot for a whilo, bad rccom
mondod bis men to bo very careful during

with rc moving the rubble, without goinR

At tho same time a loud rumbling noise
