A New Era iu Piano Fortes!
HAS now berome an established fact, acknow
ledged by the best judge* of music in all parts
of the country, that the
Mathushek Piano,
Is bound to take the lead for
Rich, Pure, and Powerful Tone l
Which speaks for itself in notes of triumph over all
others. The Reason of this Great Superiority
is apparent to all who carefully examine the pecu
liar mechanism of these instruments in
The Equalizing Scale,
which distributes the tension of the'etrings upon
all parts of the frame, relieving the instrument from
concentrated strain in any one part, thus securing
much greater strength, durability, and power of
keeping in tune,
The Cireater Length of Btriugu,
through all the treble and middle notes, the distri
bution of strings upon the
Hilneur Bridge,
which runs the whole length of the sounding board,
giving greatly e
Increased Power of Vibration
throughout its entire length, producing a purer
tone and better accompaniment to the voice than
any other instrument.
All interested are invited to call on

filBTERRAXEAX LAKE.
A correspondent of the Lancaster Ex
press furnishes the following account of
an underground lake in the southern part
of Lancaster county, Pennsylvania:
About eight miles sonth of Lancaster
city, near reqnea township, is a cave
which was formerly known by the name
of "Hosier's Hole.” This place has been
frequently visited by persons who des
cribed it as one of great interest and
curiosity, not alone for its geological feat
ures, but also for a subterranean lake of
clear, sparkling water, having neither
inlet nor outlet, imbedded in the solid
limestone rock, which it was said to con
tain. It was also said that in the lake
were fishes devoid of eyes, and that the
depth of this body of water had never
been fathomed, being beyond the reach of
the sonnding line. On Saturday last a
party from Willow street, headed by XI.
W. ilamish, Jr., left early in the morn
ing for the cave, taking with them torches
tar poles, ropes, hatchets, Ac., fully re
solved to make a thorough exploration of
the cave and a careful investigation of its
contents, which had not before been ac
complished. After approaching the place
the party examined the adjacent
grounds and the hill in which the cavern is
situated, in order to find a stream or sub
terraneous passage of water that might
possibly communicate with, or have ac
cess to the lake, existing within the cave.
After a prolonged and diligent search, the
party did not succeed in finding one.
They now went to the cave, which opens
at the top of a hill: the hole being funnel
shaped, or similar to the crater of a vol
cano. Ladders were suspended to the
bottom by the aid of ropes. The first
distance from the surface of the ground to
where the limestone rock commences is
thirty feet, where the cavity contracts
and assumes the figure of a parallelogram,
being about two feet long. From this
point to the first offset in the cave Is twenty
'feet more, or a perpendicular descent of
fifty feet from the surface of the first offset.
From here to the surface of the water is
twenty feet more, in a gradual descent.
XIov ing back about twenty feet you come
to the edge of the lake, which is forty feet
wide and sixty to seventy feet in length.
Material was procured and a flat construct
ed in order to explore the lake and sound
its greatest depth, which was thirty-five
feet. The water is cold, clear and sparkl
ing, a sample of which was taken to the
city for analysis. The water is perfectly
quiet, and has apparently no inlet or outlet.
There are some kinds of fishes or animals
in the lake, but the party were not pre
pared to secure any of them, and hence
were obliged to postpone it till some fu
ture day. The cave is from seventy to
seventy five feet long, fifty to sixty wide,
and from forty to fifty in height. There is
a firm arch of solid limestone overhead as
well as on all sides, and it appears as if it
had been shaped and fashioned by some
plastic hand.
