The Drought In Virginia-
The Lynchburg Virginian of Saturday
has most distressing accounts of the effect
of the prevailing drought from all parts of
the Sf to. The Virginian adds: “Vegeta
tion is literally burning up. The grass has
almost disappeared in some sections, while
the corn has become so shriveled, twisted
and stunted, that even copious rains from
this time forth could not save it. In some
parts of the State there has not been a good
rain for nearly ten weeks, and during all
this time we have not had in this vicinity
more than two or three brief showers. —
Under the most favorable circumstances
now, if it should be seasonable all through
the remainder of this month, and early
frosts should not set in to blight what re
mains of late corn, there will not be more
than the third of an average crop of corn
.in the State. In many sections there will
be none at all, and much suffering will be
the result of this failure. Had we not been
favoured with an abundant crop of wheat
the situation of our planters would have
been distressing indeed; and, as it is, many
of them will find it hard work to pay tax
es and provide for their household. “In
the above, we have spoken only of the corn
(Top, and have said nothing about that other
great staple, tobacco. With many of our
planters this is the main dependence to
bring them in ready mony. The wheat
crop has been so precarious in this section
for years past that the planters have not j
sown much; and it is a matter for sincere re
gret with many that they did not sow a lar- |
ger breadth of soil last fall, which would |
have enabled them, in view of the favorable
yield of wheat, to bridge over the trouble
that will be occasioned by the short crop
of corn and tobacco. The growing crop
of tobacco gives very little promise f a fair
yeild, and even if it should under the influ
ence of genial showers much too long delay
ed—take a fresh start andrccoverpartially
from the effects of the drought, it will be
so late in maturing as to subject it to the
hazard of frost in the fall thereby, crating
the necessity for cutting before it is perfect
ed. There is great reason to apprehend
that the crop will be short and of inferior j
quality, that will bring only short prices. 1
Upon the whole, therefore, the farmers j
and planters in much the larger portion of
Virginia will not bo likely to realize r, year
of good results.
Wild Beasts in a Thunder Storm— A
Thrilling Scene. —On Monday, Bailey &
Co’s. menagerie and circus exhibited at
Muscatine. The tent was struck at 11 P.
M., and the show started for Davenport.—
Before a dozen miles had been traversed, a
terrific storm let loose its lightning, thunder
and water. The lightning-was blinding
in its brilliancy, the thunder was terrific,
and the rain, violently driven by the wind,
came down in sheets. A panic seized the
whole cavalcade—men, horses, and animals
seemed terror-stricken. Eight of the dri
vers deserted their teams, and it was not
long before wagons and horses were in in
extricable confusion —a jammed-up mass of
floundering animals and overturned vehi
cles. The darkness, save when’; ic light
ning illumined the scene, was impene
' trable; caged lions, tigers, leopards, wolves
and other beasts, became frightened,* and
bounded from side to side of their prisons,
and roared, and growled, and shrieked,
in very terror. The lightning came nearer
and nearer, until its thunder seemed to
break in the midst of the caravan. The
elephants lay down in the road and refused
to move. Three of the horses were struck
by lightning and killed. It is a w'onder
that no human lives were lost. At day
break the scene presented beggars descrip
tion. Imagine it from the above account
of the night’s experience. It was the
wost adventure that ever befel a circus in
this portion of the West. The show reach
ed Davenport at a late hour in the day,
men and teams well nigh exhausted by the
terrible night’s work and the hard journey
which followed it. —Daren part ( Toiea ) Ga

A Great Leap. —Peter A. Chandler, of
Centreville, accompanied by William Nob
lett, was about passing over Smith’s Bridge
on the Brandywine, one day last week,
when the mare took fright and leaped
with such force against the side of the
bridge that the weather boarding gave way
and she was precipitated into the water
below, a distance of thirty feet, leaving the
carriage standing on the bridge. Fortu
nately she escaped with a few slight inju
ries, and Mr. Chandler fixed up the harness
which was somewhat broken, put her to
the carriage again and returned home, the
fright having entirely unfitted him to at
tend the festival for the benefit of the Bran
dywine Baptist Church at Chadd’s Ford,
to which he had designed going. The es
cape without greater injury to the mare
and carriage was truly surprising.—Repub
lican.
A Pair of Oxen Take a Bath.— Quite
an amusing scene occurred at Edgeinoor a
few days since. The water for mixing the
mortar, used in building, is drawn from
the Delaware river in ox-carts, containing
several hogsheads, which are driven out (
into the river until the water reaches the -
body of the cart, when the driver fills them. :
The day was very warm; the flies wore i
troublesome, and when the oxen were driv- ;
en in the river they started for the Jersey i
shore regardless of the cries of “whoa I”
from the driver. They kept on until the
hoghsheads floated oft’, and the driver and
the heads of the oxen could be seen just
above the water. After going some dis
tance they concluded to return, and in a
short time the team was driven up on the
beach with the driver wet through; and
his hat and hogsheads gone. He said he
had just concluded to abandon the ship ,
and swim back when the oxen headed for
shore. — Gazette.

The Thames Tunnel.— The Thames
Tunnel, which was opened on August 2d,
1848, was closed on July 21, having thus
been a public footway for a period of twen
ty-six years, less thirteen days. It has
been purchased for £200,000. (one-third of
its cost) by the East London Railway
Company, which line will be completed as
far as Wapping in a short time. The new (
Thames Subway from Tower Hill to Ber- 1
mondsey (Mr. Barlow’s scheme) commenc
ed on February 16th of the present year,
is proceeding very rapidly, and, if all goes
well will be opened for traffic in three
months time. Its cost will be under £200,-
000. The works of the old Thames Tunnel
were commenced in 1852. Physical and
linancial difficultes delayed the opening
for eighteen years.
A new defensive apparatus has been de
vised in France for the protection of infan
try soldiers against the balls of breech
loading muskets. It is proposed to line
each knapsack with a thin but bullet proof
plate of Bessemer steel, and to construct of
the same substance the kettles, bread pans,
and other camp utensils now made of ordi
nary iron, copper, or tin. These articles
are to be used as shields, but can also be
piled up in the field to form a temporary
bullet proof shelter for a battalion.

tis at once agreeable,
healthy, and effectual
for preserving the
hair. Faded or gray
hair is soon restored
with the gloss and
Thin hair is thick
ened, fulling hair checked, and bald
ness often, though not always, cured
by its use. Nothing can restore the
hair where the follicles are destroyed,
or the glands atrophied and decayed-
But such as remain can be saved for
usefulness by this application. Instead
of fouling the hair with a pasty sedi
ment, it will keep it clean and vigorous.
Its occasional use will prevent the hair
from turning gray or falling off, and
consequently prevent baldness. Free
from those deleterious substances which
make some preparations dangerous and
injurious to the hair, the Vigor ran

merely for a
HAIR DRESSING,
nothing else can be found so desirable.
Containing neither oil nor dye, it does
not soil white cambric, and yet lasts
long on the hair, giving it a rich glossy
lustre and a grateful perfume.
