Virgina, on the 3d of July, pi Ia lt2, he was seventy-slx years of age when h- pl died. Be was but twelve years of age when his ce as father moved to Kentucky and settled in Hander- et von (now Union) county. When a yong man he r d j ined the Methodist church, afterward leaving the Ie Alethod*et and became a member of a Quaker so- ar , ie'y ir. Mercer cou.ty. At one time he speeo- Is lated in wild lands in this ltate. amassing with 0 his brothers and the lamented K-ljah Hise, a con in sidernb e fortune. He afterward made a trip to Ii Y Clerk county, Indiana,and purclased a large par pi tion of the ( lark grant lands, in connectiou with ci if several t ther gentlemen. Li His acquaintance with the Shakers did not seem Ii d to wear well. for he subsequently abandoned te them, but his erratic mind did not long want f ,r f- food it seemed always to crave. It was all o 'h thirty years ago when Jones firt imbibed the live- cc g forever idea, which eventually made him so famous ts and gave him the sobriquet which remained at to It techad to him ever after. All that time an aged cr fanatic named McDantel was traveling thouglh ci the State preaching the novel doctrine that "mano r by farh cu.d live forever." Jones happened to w I, attend one of McDaniel'a meetings, and ns a oner had the strange doctrine been presented to his r mind than he becamte an enthusiast In the new faith. M eli versed in the oracles of God the travel- th 7 i alunatic and the b, rn madman were not want- " It in plruoible argument in advancing their ideas, Is a and certainly two more hone-t and earnest beli.-v. e a ni ver lived. Thenceforward they travwled ' f t gethber. preaching their doctrine wherever they ht west, and no inspired servants of God ever w Irked d mure salously than they, until one day old Me Daniel was taken al k and died after a Stor l dl d ness, quite contrary to his doctrine, and hive for ever Jones the sole disciple of the new faith, was left to battle alone with an incorrigible wr d. tome one asked Jones ift his faith were not snoren rh a by the death of Mcllaniel. "No." he replied; Ci "but I was very much embarrassed to preach his g fur eral " at With the persistency of a mart' r, he clog to be s tis marvelous doctrine. He bel eed what he n' s )led the h" ish moral " wa- the exponent of i;,d a , nu earth, and .enileo to administer all the offi 'en L and monopolize all honors. He wae. therefore, a a candidate for every vacancy, though he wanted Pi noi flice.

THE MOUNT WASHINGTON RAILWAY-A MAMMOTH to liOTEL. id A correspcndert of the Boston Journal gives a r, long account of the trial trip upon the new rail. a wey up Mount Washington, from which the fol e. ming is condensed : " it is now a trifle over ten years since Mr. Syl vester Marsh divulged his plans for the construe of tio of a steam railway up the steep and rugged t ides of Mount Wahoto gton. His scheme wa geo Ierally re ga ded as a visionary one, but he at length succeeded in demonstratlug its feasibility to the he atisfaction of sime of the most experienced rail roid men in New England, who forthwith gave their energetic aid to the really great enterprise. Two years ago a small section of the road was opened. and a public trial resu!ted in entire su:- cd ctes. Lrst year a similar trial over an extension if the railway gave equally gratifying results. I esterday witnessed the formal openiug of the se road teo point three quarters of a mile from the so eunimit of the mountain, or for something over to-Lausrd tof its ewsae length. A brief sketch ,of the entern.rlee, at d some further account of the of peculiar noechanim by which the road is ope rated, will be interesting in the present connec tion. "g The rai'way begins. as before mentioned, at a , point seven miles from the White Mountain House. The White Mountain House is situated I 15t,. feet shove the level of the sea and the rail way station is about 1117 feet above that, or about 2I.5N feet above the level of the sea. Mount be Washington is 62s5 feet abhove the level of the sea, according to the generally accepted measure ed merts, although some old barometrical ooserva 't ons five It a slightly increased aititude, so that r. it will be seen that a grade of about 3600 feet has to be overcome. The distance to be traversed by the railway is two mtiles and thirteen-sixteenths. ot I he average grade is 1300 feet to the mile, but I several places this is increased to something over 1700 feet to the mile, or one foot in three. The road was completed last year to a point known as Wauaibek Junction. one mile and eight rods from in the starting point. Waumbek Junctin is so called from the fact that the abyan bridle pab we here joined by the path which led from the Waum ar bek House, or Jefferson. ad ' Work was began again on the railroad this season May 7th, sad in the eighty-four workiag days ensuing, up to yesterday, It had advanced a further distance of a trifle over a mile. or to within three quarters of a mile of the summit The total he rise frim the lower end to the point now reached ie to snout 2.00 feet, leaving about 800 feet to be ascended in the remaining three quarters of a uti.e. The present terminus is at the top of Ja he rob's Ladder, as something like a mile of the old 10 bridle path was aptly called on account of its z-zpag course. The railway, however, takes a tolerably straight course, instead of pursuing the tortuous wlndisle or rounds of the ladder, trestle work being nsed for a long distance at that point, as well as below, to give it the proper Inclination. Ir jor one two places this 'reatle work ie thirty feet high, but it is built in the most substantial man ul ner. as strongly, in fact, as any similar work upon of an ordinary railroad, which has toguetaina weight many times greater." - IHOW THE ROAD Is MADI. " There are three rails, the outside ones being er the old fashioned strap rail, sad the center one a I cog rail or ratchet, into which oog-wheels in the d-center f the locomotive and car enter. The outer of rails are four feet and twelve isohes apart, and the middle rail is four inches wide. This latter is formed of two pieces of angle iron. three by three inches, and three-eighths of an Inch thick, coon t or nected by a series of pius or bolts. These pins or i bolts are one and a half inches in diameter, four irches long, and are placed four inches apart. 1 m The nsanner in which they are united to the sides Sand the pecollar construction of the who a give enornious strength to this part of the structure. SlThe engine and car are kept noon the track by er ueans of friction rollers wnich run under the cen Stral rail on either side. The rails are fastened to ,rd longlitudinal sills, the ratchet rail being htild down a t, flanges on each side. ibe weight rests "iout i, te ou lPde rails. The engie ihas twot cylinders tr connected with the drivinog shaft. The crank-soalt ,i s geared into the ceIter so as to givle the rea-ul ~ ite power to ruo up the steep grade. Tue boiler is upright, and is kept level by union joist or ad tIonisir-a. There is a plentiful supply of brakes r ,,l various kinds in both engine and car. Both ed ate supplied with powerful atmospheric brakes td peratng upon the middle wheels, and there are r aivo triction brakes, which are coastrncted upon ed a ritciple of great power. r ' in ascending, a strong wrought iron' dog' w eoks into the driving wheel, preventing the train he Ironi allhnog back a single inch. la descending. the s;,eed is regulated by ehbtting off the stea n d and eb, ud the ensuie doan at a fixedrato ty meanu ot compressed air.

Christina Nilseo, the young Swedish cantatrice who will visit the United States next fall, sad whom many excellent critics have uuheaslttlagly pronounced folly equal to Jenny Lind, is of very humble descent. M. Mahalle gives ia his work, '" les Joles Aetrioes de Paris," the following interetming sketeh of her past life : It is meowtig. The skies, all black as they are with night and cold. commence turning gray in the east. After awhile the sunea rises in the mist. A vague bluesah light seems to descend seth tse snow flakes. Here and there pines and birchee, covered with icicles, tremble and moan in the wind. In a sort of ravine are to be seen a few wretched cabins; from the snow clad roofs, made of bark, ascend blue clouds of smoke; those who look out of the low windows of these cabhns behold a flock of ravens on the deazling white plains. We are far from Paris, fifty leages from Stook. holm, in a miserable village of the provinces ot Snaland. Let us enter one of the hovels, which seem to have been made rather for wild boars than for mew. The poor people here live la the same room with their cattle. A miserable stove emits painful sounds in the middle of the fidor. On the ground, in a motley group, lie goate sheep and obhlldre, stretching their necks wistfully towards the kettle on the hearth. These children are dressed in rags. 'Under a window in the roof site the mother spinning. The father, saoking a pipe, sits in the corner of the room. Ever now sad then are heard from without the merry a ,ands of jingling sleigh belle, or the doll noise of a hores galloping past. a sleigh darts past with lightalag spree. In the same manner there appears and disappears a fur rap. for robe, a forjacket; then the father's voice drowns the noise of the spis niug wheel, the seething kettle on the hearth, and the lissing green wood in the stove. ' ( hristma !" From the group of children there emerges the shapely head of a very pretty girl, surrounoded by a crown of straw colored, soft and silky hair. " Christin, take your violin and go to the height! ' In this manner Christina Nilsson entered upon her career as an artiste. What a contrast be tween the highways on which she once, when a little girl, played the violin, and the magsidoeat salon in which so enthusicstid audience now lavishes applause on the great cantatrice! And yet not more than ten years have elapsed sinos her debut. Ten years ago a distinguished Swedlsh gentle. man ascended that height. heard the little peasmet girl play the violin, caused her to conduct him to her father, and said to him, " Nileson, I want to make you an offer. You daughter is a talented child. Intrust her to me, and I am ware I oas make a great artiste of her." Old Nilsson, a sharp and cle-beaded pea-aset, knew full well that his daughter possessed extraordinary musical taists; and inasmuch as the aristocratic stranger gave him several gold pieces. and promised to send him more money tree time t bUe. he did not hesitat long. sad Mtle Christina, after bidding farewell to her brothers sad seters. and shedding a few tears, accompasSed the gentleman who had already woe her young heart by the kdness with which he treated her. Two days afterward Christina reached with his the'city of Gothenabrg, where a new outfit was purchased for her, and where everybody who saw her in her new dress, exclaimed, " what an extraordinary pretty child." Her protector them took her to a boarding school, where she was e industrious and made such rapid progres that a year afterward she could already be sent to Stock. hlm, where she studled music, d where all pro. fessors and musilaes who eard her slag won deied at her excedingly great talents, and said that at length a worthy successor of Jenny Liat had been found. Upon her frst appearse**o I public concert, where she ag a few simple a tional soigs. she electriied the whole audience, and elicited the most rnprurouapplaes. Flehaly, when her professors is Stoekholm could so longer teach her anything new, she weat to Pa is, where Pr' fersor Wartel completed her masleai-edecatiei. sod where she soon after achieved se* marvelem trmiupbh on the sage of the theatre Lyriqne. And what a diflerence thee is between that wretched room In the low hovel Is the 'wedish Province of 8maland. and the apertmesb in which the cantatrice now lives ! Her apartmentsare oa e fourth floor of a large and very oue house is te Use de BItioll, sad theo Tiiltres are to be mna from the aldows of the The salos, the ony place in this eouetwary to which profane personm have yet gaied ese. in in whale and gold, and its l•raitaor is overerd with blue damask. It has only one wind-*w and three doors; that on the right lads to the bed chatbher of the mistress, the loft to the room of the lady of company, and the third commanloate wilth a pssage lesding to the snte-room. The mantel piece is made of Parian marble, anad so beautlfully wrought are the bronse or.assem on iL that it cannot but delight the eyes of all lovers of the style of Louis the Poorteesth. Tbhere is, however, nothbing at eall of these little knickknarks indicating the cooodette or coquestte. Against the wall. opposite to the window, stands a piano: beside it a sofa and oridon. The piaso im loaded with muadebooks; the sofa and gorL. don are loaded with bouquets. The bhands of the clock polat to midnigtit. Iletore the piano sits a young lady. Her drss, tasteln, though simple, reaches up to her throat. Her absnd, with the shapely, though somewhat SIog fingers, toeehes tbhe key of the iatreamoeat, while her eye wander about the room, and are now flaed on her handsome slippers, now on the window enrtain, through whioh the gas lights of th- tue RivoIl are to be seen. Sheb is absorbed In deep reflection; she seems to listen for somethiag Is her pat. Dtoe she not, perhaps, think of the nnmortal masters to whose composritions she has just given exressi ,n ? No. she calls to mind the days of her chiidhond; bhe hears again those words which speak more imprtssively to heart and sool than the music of Mi. rt: ' Christina, take your violin and go to the height '!
