The following is from 'he Louisville Jour
rial of 1858. The hero of the adventure was
the son of Mr. Prentice of the Journal, who
was recently killed:
At the supposed end of what has always
been considered the longest avenue of the
Mammoth Cave, nine miles from its en
trance, there is a pit, dark, deep, and terri
b!e, known as the Maelstrom. Tens of
thousands have gazed into it with awe,
whilst bengal lights have been thrown down
to make its fcanul depths visible, but none
ever had the daring to explore it. The eel
ebraled guide Stephen, who wn^ deemed in
accessible to fear, was offered six hundred
by Hie proprietors of the cave if he
would descend to the bottom of it, but he
shrank from the peril. A few years ago a
Tennessee professor—a learned and lxid
man—resolved to do what no one bef ire him
had dared, and, making his arrangements
with great care and precaution, he had him
self lowered down by a strong rope a hun
11red feet, but at that point his courage fail
ed him, and he called aloud to be drawn up
No human power cou dover induce him to

A couple of weeks ago, however, a young
gentleman o* Louisville, whose nerves never
trembled at mortal peri!. Ixdng nt the Mam
moth Cave with Professor Wright, of our
cry, and othe/K,determined, no matter what
the dangers might be, to explore the depths
of the Maelstrom. Mr Proctor, the enter
prising proprietor of the cave, sent to N'ash
ville and procured a lung rope of great
strength, expressly for the purpose. The
wpe and necessary limbers were borne by
the guides and others to the point of explo
ration. The arrangement being soon com
pleted, tbe rope, with a heavy fragment of
rock attached to it, was let down and swung
to and fro to dislodge any loose rocks that
would be likely «o fall at the touch. 8ev-!
eral were thus dislodged, and the long con
tinued reveiDerations, rising up like distant
thunder from below, proclaimed the depth
of the hoi rid ch ism Then the young hero
of the occasion, with several hats drawn over
his head to pioiect it as far as possible from
masses falling from aWove, and with a light
in his hand and the rope fastened round his
body, took his place over the awful pit. and
directed tbe half dozeo men who held the

A Mnuiac Traitor.
Under the care of Dr. Kirkbrido, of th?
Hospital for the Insane, is a gentleman, pro
bably incurable. He was an officer in tbe
army, a graduate of West Point, and a pat
riot in every interpretation of the term.—
He marred a Southern lady of rare accom
plishments and a handsome fortune ar.d look
ed forward to long years of merited happi
ness. When the war was imminent his
Southern wife importuned him to turn his
back upon Yankeedom, resign his commis
sion in Lincoln's army," and espouse the
cause of the South. He spumed the tempt
jress 'or a moment, but other influences were
brought to bear upon him. His wife's sis
ters and mother all joined their wiles to
those of his wife, and succumbing at last to
their alternate threats and untreaties, h"
adopted their counsels, and enrolled himself
a traitor Since then his wife died from a
maglignant fever, the fortune of lier family
passed from them, and the unfotunate rene
gade became a maniac. He is now under
the care of Dr. Kirkbride, classified among
the least hopeful cases in the institution.—

Never in the country's history was a po
litical partisan contest more inopportune
than the on* in progres in some of the loyal
States. While the Republic is threatened
with destruction, and hundreds of thousand
of patriots are in the battle field*, ri.-king
mers and mousing partisan tricksters have
sprung upon the Country political divisions
and sq nbhles that are as misrhieuous as
thev are needless. Such a state of things
reminds as very forcibly of Nero fiddling
while Rome was burning.
While the whole South presents an un-out
broken frost in the military and political
support of the rebellion, political tricksters
hive forced party divisions upon the ioya
North. W bo is to blame for this Not the
earnest friends and supporters of th Admin
istrati in and the war. Those sympathisers
with the rebels whom we have tolerated
among us, have gotten up this division by
reeklessly and traitorously organized an op
position party to the Administration and it*
war measures. True and ardent patriots
cannot permit such an opposition to exist
without combating it and doing their utmo-t
to crush it. That is what the supporter* of
the war are now endeavoring to do—are by
duty impeded to do—and thev expect to
put a final qutetne** to the Northern allies
