the result of ignoranco of tho laws which

and high nbovo nil tho rest she
henrd her husband's voice. .Shu did
not liko to go in, so sho would
tnko a stono and pitch it against tho door.
just hard enough lo attract his attention.
Sho pitched tho stone, but unlortunatoly,
sho throw it too hard, and bang it went
through a pano of glass. Then thoro wns

PROF. DENTON'S LECTURE.
Tho lecture of Prof. Denton last night
nt the Athcnoum was listened to by n very
large nnd highly intelligent audience ;
nnd if wo aro allowed to judgj from tho
expressions of all those who henrd
him, wo must say ho is all that has
been claimed for him. His expression is
clear nnd distinct, and for real, gennino
eloquence, his equals aro few, if indeed
there nro nny who can como
near him. His description of
tho eruptions of Vesuvius and
-Etna, mid the destruction of Pompeii
were truly magnificent. As has been said
before, " Mr. Denton straws tho rocky pith
cf geology with choico flowers of poetry
aud literature nnd lightK nnd warms tho
the lark caves of tlio earth with thu con
ftanl llri'ji of hls glowing imagination."
