tHE END OF THE WORLD.
Notwithstanding the expreit declaration
bf Urn Savior, in foretelling his second ad
vent and the end of tha world that "of
that day and hour knowelh no man, no,
not even the angels of heaven" there have
in all ages been those who vainly attempt
to be ''wise above what is written;" and in
their interpretation nf the mysterious lun
gunge of prophecy, they have from time to
time confidently predicted the exnet year,
month, and even day, "when all these things
shall come to pass.' Repeatedly as tliey
have proved to be falsa prophets, each gen
eration sees new ones Brining, and they are
never without tome deluded follower'.
The last that we have heard of it Captain
W. A. Baker, a British army officer of the
Royal Bombay Engineers who has pub
lished to the world a book bearing the title
bf "The day and the Hour, or, Notes on
Prophecy, a Sketch of the Future, extract
ed from the Bible." This strange volume
lias mst appeared in iMiolanu, and will no
doubt create a sensation in certain circles.
The author gives full particulars of sundry
..Very remarkable events, which, if we will
kcept his authority, are to happen the next
irteen years 1878 being that in which
nil terrestrial things ere to come to end
It is fixed, he tells us, for the hours of sun
set on tha 20lh of September in that year;
but it will be preceeded by other events ol
great interest to the whole world, the dales
of which are exactly given, thus :
On the Oih of October, 1867, Queen
Victoria will retire, and the Prince ol
Wales be made Prince Regent,
In 1869 and '70, Austria will seize
Greece and some minor German States, and
Russia will seize on Turkey.
. On the 27th of October, 1871, Russia
end Austria will combine to make wur on
France; and on the same day, perhaps, Na-
poleon will sign a covenant with the Jews
On the 2d ol June, 1872, the Emperor
of Russia will be killed in Palestine, on the
field of battle, and Napoleon will become
supreme monarch, all the kingdoms of the
old Koman earlU tailing to nun, .uritian ex
On'lhe 10th of MarcTi, 1875, the Jew
will be restoYed to Jerusalem and the Holy
On the 9th of April, 1875, Antichrist
(who is explained as Napoleon III.) will
appear, and be fully revealed.
About the 1st of September, 1S74, the
sign of the Son of Man will appear in the
heavens; and at sunset, as we have said, on
the 20th of September, 1878, Christ will
be seen descending on Jhunl Olivet
Captain Baker professes to have discov
ered two most important events which are
to occur injuicksticcession after the power
of Napoleon is consolidated, but before his
appearance as AntiChrist: 1st. The re
surrection of (he just, immediately on the
expiration of the six thousand years of the
world, which, according to his chronology,
will be December 6, 1874. This will be
invisible to the living, he thinks, and
naively remarks, ''1 therefore do not expect
my opinion can ever be proved right, nor
can it ever be proved wrong." 2d. The
translation of the saints from earth to heav
eD, which is to take place some little time
before dawn on the 25th of January, 1875.
This, like their resurrection will be also
invisible, "and therefore," soys the Cap
tain, "we shall never know in this lite
whether such is precisely the case or not."
On the principle of the old adage, that
"seeeing is believing," the learned author
is Dot likely to make many converts.
INCOMES OF FREEDMEN.
The following table of incomes of some
of the freedmen of Newbern, during the
third year ol the war, is an argument that
cannot be made to appear to advantage by
those who claim that slaves ere rendered
lelpless and wretched by emancipation,
305 persons not employed by the Govern
ment, but working ot trades ot their own,
returned a total income of $151 562, the
average of nil incomes being $406 92.

A TERRIBLE PREDICTION.
Professor Leonidas, an Indianepclis as
trologer, after looking at the rings eround
the sun, makes the following horrible
prophecy: "I observe by the plahets lhat a
dreadful plague will commence in Russia
originating from silks brought over from
Euypt, Cano and turkey. It will extend
across the Baltic Sea, desolate Germany,
cause immense mortality in England, and
then spread to the United States. This
dreadful epidemic will spot the people like
leopard and turn the liesn, to a purine
black. The pestilence will carry off such
an amount of mortals that there will not be
enough left to bury the dead or give them
Christian burial. J. lie streets ol our
cities, towns and villages will be swarmed
with thb dead and dying. The groans and
ells of horror will fill every breast with
consternation. Contusion will abound on
all sides. The death knell will ceitse to
toll as the malady rages in fury. The in
fected will fall and die wherever they take
it. The stench of the dead will become so
common that the survivors will not heed it
A steamer of 200 tons is about leavin

Jeff's Treasure, An affair of ennsid

room of the Treasury, where a count is
being made of Jeff Davis's treasure, cap
tured by Major General Wilson and brought
here from Augusta, Georgia, by Mr.

The specie consists of olioul $87,000 in
gold, and $9,000 in silver, the latter being
principally in Mexican dollars of old coin
age, besides about thirty bars of silver,
which will make the entire value of the
treasure something over $100,000. Star.
The total annual product of oc.fico in the

The following account is given
death or Stonewall Jackson :
He received one .ball in the shoulder
joint, shattering the bone and severing the
chief artery a second ball passed through
the same arm between the elbow and wrist,
making its exit through the palm of his
right band, about the middle, and passing
through, broke two of the bones. At the
moment when he was struck, he was hold
ing his rein in his left hand, and the right
was raised either in the singular gesture
habitual to him, at times or excitement, or
to protect his lace from the boughs of the
trees. His left hand immediately dropped
Bt his side, and his horse no longer con
trolled by the rein, and frightened at the
firing, wheeled suddenly and ran from the
fire in the direction of the Federal lines.
Jackson's helpless condition now exposed
him to a distressing accident. His horse
ran violently between two trees; from one
of which a horizontal bough extended, at
about the height of his head, to the other,
and, as he passed between the trees, this
bough struck him in the face, and tore off
his cap and threw him violently back on his
horse. The blow was so violent as nearly
to unseat him, but did not do so, and rising
erect again, lie caught the bridle with the
broken and bleeding fingers of his right
hand and succeeded in turning his horse
back intothe turnpike. Here Captain Wil
bourn, of his staff, succeeded in catching the
reins and checking the animal, who was
