The Great Plastic. In Did ns' Child's History of England, vol. two, we find the following, respecting the Great Plaugue that prevailed in the seventeenth cen tury in the city of London : "For this was the year and the time of the 4'! eat Plague in London. During the winter <>l 1004, it had been whispered about that some pee| !e had died here and there of disease called ' -Plague in some ol the unwholesome suburbs <>f London. News was not published at tuat time as it is now, and some people believed these ! rumors and some disbelieved them, and they r-' son forgotten. But in the month ol May, liitio, it began to be said all over the town that 'he disease had burst out in St. Giles, and that Hie people were dying in great numbers. Tbis - on turned out to be awfully true. The roads of I. ndon were choked up by people endeavoring to t-scape from the infected city, and large sums were paid (dr any kind of coifveyance. The -i-a-e soon spread so last that it was neccessary > ' shut lip the house in which people were, and ! cut thein off from the living. Every one of !: ->se houses were marked on the outside of the C ' r with a red cross, and the words "Lord have • rcy on Us! ' fhe streets were all deserted, g uss grew in the public ways, ami there was a 'ircadjiii silence in the air. When night came " : b L- rnal rumblings used to be heard, and those were the wheels of the death cart, attended by •Ten with veiled faces, and holding cloths to their j'iouth, who rang doleful bells, and cried in a ;"i and solemn voice—"Bring out your deadAF 'Be corpses put into these carts were buried by ; ch light in great pits, no service being per ■ niied over them—all men being afraid to stay 1 ■ a moment on the bank of the ghastly graves. *•' the general fever, children ran away from 'Heir parents, and parents trom their children. otlle who were taken ill, died alone and with pit any help. Some were stabbed or strangled !

One madman, naked, and carrying adraziei full of burning coals upon his head, stalked through the streets, crying that he was a prohet commis sioned to denounce the vengeance of the Lord on wicked London. Another also went to and /ro, exclaiming:—"Yet forty days and London shall be destroyed !" A third awoke the achoes of the dismal streets, by night and by day, and made the blood of the sick run cold, by catting out incessantly, in a deep hoarse voice: "Oh the r great and the dreadful God!" Through the months of Julv, August and September, the Great Plague raged more and more. Great tires were lighted in the streets, in the hope of stopping the injection: but there was a plague of rain, too, and beat the fires out. At last the winds that usually rise at that time called the equinox, when day and night are •- qual I' ,ui a I over the world, began to blow and urity the wretched town. The deaths he ir . to decrease, the red crosses slowly to disap pear, the fugitives to return, the shops to open again, pale, frightened faces to be seen in the streets. The plague Lad been in every part of England, but in close and unwholesome London it had killed one hundred thousand people." The Burnin? of the Steamer E. K. Collins- The mails bring us the particulars of the loss bv fire of the steamer E. iv. Collins, near the mouth of the Detroit, on Monday last, a brief account of which came by telegraph a dav or two ago. The tire undoubtedly originated from tiie steerage passengers emptying their pipes filled with burning tobacco into the light wood-work of the decks. When the fire was first discovored, it spread with such rapidity that every effort to check it proved unavailing. Mr. C'ary, a passenger, sa vs-: "He was sitiing in the upper forward cabin reading when the alarm of fire was given be tween 10 and 11 o'clock. Mr. C. was proba bly the only passenger up arid dressed when the fire broke out, and he immediately passed down the cabin gangway to (lie main deck. As lie reached that deck he saw the smoke in the cabin be love the main deck, but it had not reached the door leading from that cabin to the main deck. Mr. C. immediately ran up through the cabin and up the arch to the hurricane deck to the pilot-house." amfloldthe wheelsman that the boat whs on fire, ami begged hint to [nit her ashore. The request was made three times, and the last time Mr. C. begged the wheelsman for God's sake to put her ashore arid save the jives of the passengers; and to enforce his request, pointed the wheelsman to the Hairc s then bursting out around the smoke-pipes upon tire deck where thev were. The wheels man made no reply, and the boat was not put firr the shore,or it the attempt was made, it was after the engine bad been stopped and h•-r head way about gone. Mr. C. jumped down upon the lower hurricane deck, and then went down to a sfaiinchion to the main deck, w here he found a life jiasseuger slool, end seizing that he got down over the outside of the bow as low as he could, where tire fire reached nothing but lus left hand, with which he held on. Mr. C. got off his coat and boots, and while doing s i a number threw then,selves overboard, one man knocked Mr. C.'s hat of! as he went over. Many were saved by getting assistance from llie shore. One whole-souled Irishman succeeded in saving no less than three women, by swimming ashore with them clasping his neck. Mr. C. held on as long as able, and until bis hand was so burned that he was forced to leap, taking his stool with lurn, which sustained ft TIT? until he was picked up by a boat from shore, and placed upon the propel lor Fintry. When Mr. C. was on the main deck, before be found his stool, he heard the order given by some one to port the helm or the wheel, and looking up saw two persons standing in front of the w heel-house, and the smoke completely cir cling around the wheel-house, and he thought the wheelsman was trying to turn the wheel, but from what the engineer afterward stated, the engine at that time must have been stopped. A Mrs. Morris was picked up by the same small boat, having floated with a life-preserver, put on bv her husband. Mr. M. was also saved.— The boat picked up at tiiat time three or four persons. Slepp and Death. The Angels of Sleep and Death, locked arm in arrr., wandered over the earth. It-was even ing. They laid themselves down ujwn a loftv hill that overlooked the habitation of man. A moufnful stillness reignpd around, broken only by the evening bells whose sound came only from distant hamlet. Silent and speechless as their wont, these beneficent guardian angels of mankind lay in close embraces-till night's dark mantle fell around them. Then the Angel of Sleep rose from his mos>v couch and scattered with noiseless hand the invisible seeds of slum ber. The evening wind carried them to the silent dwellings of the weary husbandmen.— Soon sweet sleep enfolded in its gentle embrace the inmates of the rural cottages—fromthegray haired sire, whose tottering steps it supports, to the irilant in ils cradle. The sick forget his pains, the mourner his sorrow , the poor his cares. All eyes were closed. His task being finished, this benovelent Angel again lay down by his sterner brother's side. "When morning breaks," cried he, with happy innocenep, "all the world will bless me, as their friend and benefactor.— Oh! what joy, to do good in secret and unseen. How happy are we, invisible messengers- of the good spirit! How beautiful is our quiet of fice"' Thus Spake the Angel of Slumber.— , i Ihe Angel of Death gazed upon him in silent - sadness, whijffi tears, such as immortals weep, stood in liis lalge dark eyes. "Ah !" said he, ; "would that I, like you, could rejoice in cheer - ful thanks : butthe world calls me its foe and i joy-destroyer." "Oh ! my brother," bus we red . the Angel of Slumber, "will not every goodman, 1 upon awakening, recognize his friend, i and gratefully bless thee ! A kpt brothers • and children of one father spake.— The tearful eyes of the Anglo-of Death shone I with a gleam of pleasure, while be pressed his i his gentler brother more tenderly to his heart Destruction of a Town. A letter in the Madr id Tribune of September 1 7, gives an account of a terrible and extraor- I cfiuary catastrophe that had occurred at Durocu, I a small town in Arr.-.gon, i-ituale in a rich and fertile valley, abounding ir\corn and wine.— ' From its situation, in a deep hollow, complete ly surrounded by mountains, this place is pecu liar to inundation; and, as a remedy, a tunnel was cut in 1 5(10, by a Frenchman named Pier rie Bedell. The tunnel is a magnificent work, 234-0 feet long, 24- feet wide, and 24 feet high. The enterprise was patronizad by the Pope,and. assisted by alms from all Christendom. Previ ous to ils achievement the waters that flowed at j. wet seasons from two hagues,of'mountain, rush ed througli the streets of the tow n on the way 1 to the river. Jt appears that on the 11th of September, at three in the afternoon, an immense water-spout, rising from the lake of Gallocanta, remained fur i a considerable time hovering over the shore, ■ about a league from Doraca. When it burst the ■ whole district was converted into a lake. The waters poured down in the direction of the tun nel in a stream much larger, it is said, than '.he Ebro or Tortosa, and, seen from an elevation, appeared like moving mountains of liquid. Th*' dtmj-nsions of the tunnel, which has a very de cided slope, weie insufficient to allow the pas sage of the vast mass, which then moved past, forming a spacious sea. This extended itself towards the town, at two hundred yards from 1 which it was arrested by the causeway that has ! frequently saved Daroca when menaced by per- j ils of a similar nature, but less magnitude.— j Above this causeway the waters rose, heaping ; themselvr s upon it say the account, to the height j of three yards, and then plunging down on the j unfortunate town. The gateway, although an unusually large j one, was not large enough to allow their en- ! trance, and another great lake was formed against the walls, which presently began to crmpbfc under its presure. "What then oi carred, says the letter, "is an inexplicable thing. The waters fought with and overthrew : those houses whese position opposed their cur rent. They carried away the fountain of San j Pedro, and opening great trenches and ! ursting open the doors, of the Pocado and of several : shops, they spread through squares ami streets, inundating wine cellars, ware houses, and trie ; _ first floors of the houses: in some reaching up j to the very roofs. Throwing down walls and abandoning everything, the inhabitants fled to j the mountains, whence they looked on at the horrible catastrophe. The luss has been incalculable. In the vaults water has replaced wine, the contents of the shops are spoiled, and many houses are crumbling aw ay. In the plain around the tow n the inundation lias destroyed evervthing. A young wowan of twenty was carried away bv j the torrent, and many children and adults are 1 missing. In the first moments the anxiety was ; horrible. None thought of anything but count- j ing their families, and seeing if any were absent. ; The animals that have perished are innumerable; J among them many of the farm horses of the un fortunate peasants. It is horrible. "God have mercy on us!" An Ixoeniouk Swindle. —An unsophistira- ! fed drover,just from the country, made com-' plaint yesterday, at the Mayor's office, of having I been swindled out of $llOO. It appears that fhF drover had on Saturday, disposed of his j horses f>r the amount above named. On Sun day lie met a man in this city, with whom- he • went over to Camden. When they arrived on the other side, they met a third party, who was unknown to the drover. They had not proceeded lar, when ibe two men got into a quarrel, and ! appealed to the countryman as arbiter. When the pretended difficulty was healed, ! the man whom they met at C'3ir.den pulled a I null out of his pocket, saying he was an agent of the Emperor of Russia, authorised t. procure a i number of bomb shells, to be manufactured in this country for the use of his highness' army in j the present war, and lhat the ball was a model ! of a shell which had been given him. The stranger asked his friend to try toopenthe hall, which was done, and a piece of paper thrown out in the presence of the man. The man who held the ball then bet that it contained a piece of paper. The other party replied that he had no money; but he would bet his gold watch that no paper-could he found. '1 he ball was opened and the paper found, j This led to other betting on the part of tin* two i accomplices, when the losing one said that ail j he now had was a check for SISOO, which he would change when he came over to the citv, : or perhaps, he said, the other gentleman (mean- j ing the drover) would cash it for him. The ' drover replied that he had $llOO. The would be borrower then said that he would take the $llOO, and the rest when they came to Philadelphia, w-here he would not have the least difficulty in getting the check cashed.— The poor drover took the check, and gave in exchange his $llOO. They all then started to : take a little walk, which was directed bv the ' two wary scoundrels into the country, where they contrived to slip the drover. Ihe unlortunale-countryman came to Phil- j adelphia, and made his complaint at the may- j or's office. Officers were immediately sent in ! search of the thieves, but without success.— j Despatches have been sent to var ions cities and Freedom of Thought and Opinion. BEDFORD, PA. FRIDAY MORNING, NOV. 3, 1854. The bond holders will then i re have as secu rity for the payment of their bonds, thirty-five miles of road, with all its superstructure and equipment, and two thousand acres of valuable coal land, making together a security of from a million and a quarter to a million and a half of dollars, nearly three times the amount of bonds they propose or intend to issue. From the information already in our posses sion, particular ly in reference to the capacity : and extent of the coal region penetrated by the ; improvements of this Company, we are perfect ly confident in making the statement that the ; securities of it will prove among the most safe : and substantial of any that are likely to be found in our .market for some years to come.— | The coal and iron region, for the development | of which this improvement is being constructed, i embraces an area of eighty square miles, whilst the product from it is of such a character as to , secure for it at once a most commanding posi tion in tlm market. The peculiar quality of coal to be obtained from the ffroatl Top region, j can be found in no other locality within the same distance from the markets where it is con sumed: and the already large and increasing de "voij! Cr a coal of that quality, warrants the conviction that the business to he done by this Company will he regulated entirely hv its capa city lor transportation: ami, as the road now in course of construction is of the most substantial character, and the bed is graded for a double track, the estimate of business and profits made by the Directors are, of course, entitled to cred it. The follow ing estimate of the position of the Ounpanv, after the completion of their road, which we extract from the pamphlet before us, and which w as furnished to the stockholders on the 2sth of September, will show at a glance the high character of the bonds which the man agers are about to issue, and which wi!l_d<>iihf less attract the immediate attention of capital ists : Estimate of the nett receipts of the. Company after the Rood is in operation on year.

The bonds which it is proposed to issue will bear an annual interest of seven per cent., and as they are convertible into stock at the option of the holder, and have interest coupons attach ed, payable in Philadelphia, their value is still : further enhanced. The present high price of, coal, and the constantly increasing demand for j the article, are circumstances which render the s encouragement of new works for bringing coal to market a matter of very great interest, as 1 well as of duty : and in this view of the case,! we should not be surprised to see these corpora- \ tions which are now dependent on a variety of, uncertain contingencies for their supplies, turn- j ing their attention to this Company, and the re-j gion in which it is to operate, in such a substan- ' tial manner as might quicken the development | of both.— Daily .Yews. no means left undone to secure the heartless swindlers.

IVe have been furnished with a pamphlet containing a statement made by the Directors of the Huntingdon and Broad Top Mountain Railroad Company, in reference to the condi tion and prospects of their road. j .f v the act incorporating this Companv, per i mission is given to the managers to issue ts-nds |to such an -extent as is necessary to complete and stock the road ; and, in pursuance of that -authority, as we learn from the pamphlet.be fore us, the Board of Managers are new about to issue bonds to the amount of five hundred thousand dollars, and they therefore make their present statement in explanation of the amount of credit to which their work is entitled. To secure the payment of these bonds, the Com pany have mortgaged their road, with all its tranci.'ises, including two thousand acres of valuable coal land, to Thomas E. Franklin, Esq., of Lancaster county, Hezekiah Easton, Esq., of Franklin county, and Jese Godley, Esq., of Philadelphia, in trust for the benefit of the bond holders. This is thp first issue oi bonds made by the company, and being, as is known, adequate to complete and stock the road, no more will he at anv time issued. From the X. O. Picayune. IMPORTANT FROM CI BA. The Jlssussination of Castanedu HAVANA, Oct. 1-4, 1854. —Since I last had the pleasure of writing to you, nothing of im portance had occurred in our orderly and quiet city until the night before last, when it was dis turbed in ils propriety by one of those most cowardly assassinations, which occasionally oc cur amongst our benighted populace. This was one of more importance than usual, as the un fortunate victim, Jose A. Castanedu, was the individual who captured Gen. Lopez, and a gainst whom vengeance was sworn at the time. Soon alter he received the reward, ($6000,) which tiie Government offered for the capture of Lopez, he \\ i nt to Sj nin, kissed the Queen's hand, and received the honored cross of dis tinction, Inr his and he has but late ly returned. He had been watched constantly for the fatal opportunity, and on the evening of the 12th, between the hours of 7 and 8, he was [ laying a game of billiards, at a coffee house called Marte y Belona, outside of the cilv, and as he was in the act of striking the ball with Ihs back towards a blind on the piazza, he was shot through the blind, two halls entering the hack ot his head, which almost instantiv killed him : and although there was a great number of people present, tiie assassin made good his es cape. f>en. Concha had had an interview with him on that day, and it is said, gave him an appoint ment as captain of a partido. Concha feels this as an insult to him, and has offered a large re ward for the apprehension of the assas-in. Yes terday afternoon he was buried. At the time 1 of starting, a mob collected, and showed a de j t' rmination to prevent, it possible, the inter ment. A guard of soldiers was ordered out to protect the remains on the way to "Campo Santo," which v.as followed by an immense ! crowd, veiling, throwing stones, See., and it was j with great difficulty that the grave was reached. Several of the civil guard were badly injured : —a number of the rioters were arrested, and ; no doubt will he severely dealt with. This j Castunedo w as d-sf ised hv every one ; his char j acter was always had, and once his life was | saved by Gen. Lopez, when he was president ; of the military commission, by his casting vote. Such was hi- gratitude, that he hunted the poor man out with dogs in his hour of distress, to get ! the reward for his precious head. Last evening the grand serenade came off in the Plaza de Armas. There were about 100 musicians ami singers present, who performed I and sung from 8 o'clock until 10. The square | and surrounding streets were crowded—at least | 1:>,000 persons being present. Ladies in their voiantes, surrounded the square four deep, and, ■ altogether, it was one of the greatest show s of the kind we have ever had. All seemed pleas ed, and tire scene ended without mishap to any one. Gen. Pezuella and his family left for Spain in the Spanish Steamer Ceion on the I2tb. He leaves behind him but few friends. There is nothing new in the politics of the Island. Everything remains very quiet, and no trouble of any kind is now apprehended, and that tranquility may continue is the wish of all honorable men. The Captain General goes ori endeavoring to improve in every way he can. fie has a great work before hi#n, and by- degrees lie will no doubt do much good. The Excitement at Denton. DAVE THOMAS, THE MURDERER, HC.XC RY A MOB. —We stated yesterday that Dave Thom as. the negro w ho murdered Mr. Win. 11. But ler, in Coruiina Co., Md., on the 27th ult., had been tried at Denton and convicted of "murder in the second degree," and that the verdict had caused so much dissatisfaction as to induce ma ny-citizens to threaten a resort to lynch law on Thursday last, the day on which the prisoner was found guilty. The prompt interference of the law, however, prevented the threat from be ing carried into ex. cuti -n at tin* time. But, it appears, the vengeance of the populace was on ly temporarily stayed. We learn from a let ter ola correspondent we received yesterday, that a large and excited crowd assembled about 12 o'clock on Sunday night, proceeded to the jail, broke it open, took the prisoner out and hung him from a plank which they nailed to a window on the outside, in the second story of the jail building. He was suspended until life was extinct, when lie was cut down and his body conveyed back into the jail. Nor did the mob stop here. They then released and set at liberty two other prisoners, one of whom had been sentenced to the penitentiary. We fearn fiom another source that the ifl was seized and tied by the mob before they proceeded to their murderous work. This is one of the most dangerous outrages ever perpe trated in Maryland.— Baltimore Sun. Convenience in Eating. A correspondent of the .Morning Star gives the fashion of eating in India, as follows : "The manner of cooking and eating among l!i p natives of India, strikes a stranger as very wild and simple; especially if first observed on the numerous rude little boats, which are always floating around, and following inward bound ships. On the evening of our first day on the Hoogiy, we sat on the side of the vessel, which overlooked many of these boats, and with much curiosity observed the preparation and eating of the evening meal. First of all, the native who acted as cook put a quantity of rice into a small basket, not water-tight, and reaching it over the side of the boat, allow ed it to g<-t nearly full of water, when lie shook it long to clean the rice, and then placed it on a vessel set on a rude fur nace, and left it to boil, and in the mean time prepared some vegetable or rice, but in a wrv small quantity. When the rice was cooked, it was poured iuio an immense brass dish, and the fish and vegetable which had been fried, were TERKS, $2 PER YEAR. VOL XXIII, NO. 12. put at thp sid**: and the eaters, sifting flat upon the boat, surrounded the dish. They conveyed the food to the mouth with the right hand, hold ing the head a little forward, and the quantity of rise comsuined was really astonishing. When the eating was finished, a small brass dish was passed around to drink from, after which a little water was poured upon the eating hand, to wash it, from the same dish, and the meal was finished: and so far as our subsequent observa tion exteftded, this is substantially the manner of cooking and eating among the common peo ple generally, both at home and on journeys, and it is certainly very convenient. Gtn. Cass at Chicago. This venerated statesman made a speech in Chicago on Friday evening, the 20th inst., to a large meeting of Democrats, who had engaged the North Market Hall for that purpose, fie defined-his position on the subject of slavery, and examined fully the subject of the much a bused squatter sovereignty, as embodied in the Nebraska and Kansas act. He stripped the question of all the misrepresentation which Ab olitionism ayd Know Motbingism have thrown around it, and was more than ordinarily elo quent and powerful. lie read opinions of SEWARD, EVERETT and others, that slavery could never enter those territories, and referred to the great national sentiments of W'Eusrnti and CLAY, and feelingly eulogised the exalted virtues of the latter. He called the attention of the members of the W ? hig party to the pa triotic exclamation of CLAY, that he would cease to he a Whig when the Party became Aboli tionized! He feared the party had become Abolitionized. The old General was loudly applauded, and three cheers were given over and over again. FRED. DO:OLA>S, the negro,*was in attend ance, hut behaved himself throughout with the utmost respect, although a number of Abolition ins present made an effort to get him to reply to the veteran statesman. The Chicago 'limes, in speaking of the dis graceful conduct of the Abolitionists, says:— The negro, however, who yesterday, at Au rora, expressed his astonishment at the want of decency displayed bv bis abolition brethern, re fused promptly to interfere with the rights of the gentlemen who had engager! the room. He said that if a negro, he knew what the proprie ties of life were, and hoped that his white asso ciates would not disgrace him or his cause, by prolonging their disorderly conduct. He then left the rr>om. For half an hour afterwards, the mnbiteskept up their yells and screams, cow cheering Penn sylvania and now cheering their negro associ ate. The Democrats still' held the hall, and their chairman, Col. Hamilton, passed their full determination to keep it till they adjourned. Mr. Kerfoot, a Whig, we believe, mounted the stand and asked the yelling crowd to hear him : after much exertion he was allowed to sav that he hoped the gentlemen who had rent ed the room would be allowed to conclude their meeting, after which, if it was desired, others could do as they pleased. This much, fie said, was due to propriety and order. The crowd, however, would listen to no such appeal. They refused to let tiie meeting adjourn. Things as sumed a fearful aspect just now. We thought there was more than a prospect for violence. The great body of the meeting had dispersed. The members of the Democratic club present, took possesion of the stand, and avowed their determination to protect it at all hazards. The abolitionists gathered round, and threatened, but did no violence. Tn the midst of the threat ening storm, those having the custody of the hall turned off the gas. The Know-Nothing and Abolition gentry then wreaked their revenge on the furniture in the hall, seizing and breaking the chairs and throwing the fragments out at the windows, arid about the room, striking in their erratic course both friend and foe. At last, Abolition rowdyism has been baffled in Chicago. A DELICATE SEARCH. —The St. Louis Her ald states a case of a young lady of the most un doubted respectability, who entered a shoe store in that city, and asked to be shown some gaiter boots: a number were shown to her u hich she examined and tried on. While the atten tion of the storekeeper was occupied with anoth er customer, several pairs of gaiters disappeared. The lady concluding not to purchase, tie v. as compelled to accuse her of secreting his shoes; she denied, and he insisted, and proceeded to search, and found several pair suspended by books which were attached to the lady's garters. He took from the hooks those belonging to him, and lelt there several others, which had no doubt been taken from other stores. She was allowed to depart. P I I! K TR I TH .
