The Cra"1 Volcanlo Eruption of
1 867- "A Pillar of Cud by
Day and a Klor of
Flro r,v Wight."
Natlks, Wov. 15. AU summer long, under
the blazing nun, Mount Vesuvius ha stood
silent and wltliuut a sign of life, like any other
Kreat heap of earin anu ashes. The few visitors
who cniue here, after tbe canonization at
Home, lu Jaue, despite the prevalence ol the
cholera, were, of course, disappointed at seeing
ft mere hill, lu no respects dillerlng irotn otber
bills when viewed from a distance, instead of
toe smoking, flaming mountitln which pictures
of Vetuvlus bad led them lo expeot. Humbling
through tlio ruins of 1'ompull an -4 Herculu
netitu, Uiey were unable to realize bow
such tremendous havoo could bave been
caused by t-o apparently commonplace an
eievatlon as Vesuvius seemed to be. Even
when you ascended tbe mountain ltseif,andsaw
t he Jets of smoke curllug beneat h your feet, and
felt tbe heitt of tbe abbes, and smelt tbe sul
phuric odors, arid looked down tbe horribly
rough, rugged, and ghastly crater, filled wild
fumes and vapor,aua suggesting a close con
nection, through subterranean passages, with
tbe Infernal regions. It was not easy to recon
cile the appearance of tbe volcano with what
you bad read or beard of. Us magnificence and
power. But now Vesuvius Is in flames, the
earth trembles, and one of tbe most sublime
spectacles on earth is presented to our eyes.
All summer long tbe veteran guides of Naples
bave binted lo visitors that au eruption was at
band, basing tbelr predictions upon observa
tions and experiences of which tbe ordinary
tourist can know Homing, liut, as usual, these
predict ions were regarded as mere traps tt in
duce travellers to stay awhile longer at this
most seen lo, most Jovial, and most enjoyable of
Continental cities, and were listened to with
incr.cdulous smiles and shakes of tbe head.
When tbe autumn came tbe attention of the
guides and of everybody else was attracted by
another eruption, more interesting tbeu than
the predicted outbreak of Vesuvius. Gari
baldi bad declared his crusade against
Home, and tbe red shirts were again to take
tbe field, lluudreds of gay, laughing Noapoi'.
tan; lads turned out to follow tbelr 'Cader to
"Howe or death," and are now seeping forever
beneath tbe grasses of. Monte iiotondo and
Montana, when the Ill-starred crusade was
over, fears Were entertained by tbe Government
that tbe returning Garlbaldlana and tbelr
friends at Naples, already disaffected towards
tbe King would at once undertake a revolu
tion, and It was whispered about that Mazzlnl
was on hand to bead tbe movement. In fact,
two or three emules did occur, but nothing
serious, and tbe Government had so strength
ened tne garrison of the city that any rising
short of a general revolt or the populatlou
could be instantly crushed. So tbe authorities
watched the people, and the people grumbled
about Garibaldi's arrest and French Interven
tion, end tbe strangers hurried away to Home
so soon as tbe Eternal City was relieved from
siege, and nobody thought of Vesuvius, staud
ing sulkily in tbe distance, and hardly distin
guishable from otber aJjacent bills.
Last nigbt, however, as II Jealous of these
counter attractions, and tired of Us long lu ac
tion, tbe famous volcano suddenly burst forth
In a glory of smoke and flame. Everybody
was tukeu by surprise. All Naples was In a
stale of excitement . SigDor Palmier!, the
Superintendent of tbe National Observatory,
wbo ought to have anticipated the eruption
and been upon tbe spot with his Instruments,
started at once In haste for the mountain, to
record scientifically the progress of ibe phe
nomena, lie found ten new craters forme., or
in course ol formation, in and near the great
central crater. These new craters are arm 11 at
present, averaging five or six feet in diameter;
but they constantly tbrow out red-hot stones
and cinders, and slowly vomit forth boiling
lava. Tbe lava now pours into and upon tbe
central crater; when that is filled, It will roll
down the side of tbe mountain, as In the days
when Pompeii was smothered and Hercuia
neuin choked out of existence by an eruption
as sudden, but much more terriflo than ibis.
Mount Vesuvius, you will remember, is about
ten miles from Naples, and tbe mountain
proper is about twenty-four huudred feet blgh,
uscendlng by a very gradual slope. Hut from
tbe top of tbe mountain, perched nearly lu the
centre, rises a truncated cone fifteen hundred
feet high, and this contains tbe crater of ibe
volcano. Tbe eruption of 1838 gave the interior
of this cone the lorm of an old-fushtoned tea
cup, the sides varying in thickness from five
hundred to forty feet, and the Inside being
about rive hundred feet deep. The present
eruption has not yet changed this form, and
the new craters have not greatly modified the
interior of tbe cone. At any moment, however,
ibe demon wbo groans beneath tbe mountain
In bis burning lied may transform the whole
exterior of Vesuvius.
Such outbreaks as this which we are now per
mitted to observe may be tbe preliminaries of
an immediate eruption on tbe grandest possi
ble scale, or may die away, after a few weeks,
not to be renewed in many months or years.
Nobody can tell whether tbe scenes of 1M17,
1850, and 1865 are to be repeated, or whether this
la merely a theatrical display, ending harm
lessly, and serving only to detain visitors at
Naples and attract crowds of tourists. Thus fir
It presents the combined phenomena of red-hot
stones, cinders, and lava.- These phenomena
are not always coincident. Although there
were undoubtedly streams of lava from tbe
volcano in A. 1). 79, yet there is no very ac
curate record of the discharge of liquid lava
until lOJti. Home eruptions bave been accom
panied by earthquakes, others have not; but
iiow Ibe earth rumbles beneath the feet of
those wbo visit tbe mountain, detonations are
heard, as from subterranean cannon, and the
ground trembles as though It were about to
f awn in hideous chasms and swallow up all
I vlng things. Only when you pass down from
the loose ashes of tbe cone, aorois the lack,
desolate bells of Jagged scorlut, and reach the
rich, smiling vlneyurds at the foot of tbls fiery
end uneasy monster, does the sense of seourity
return, and even then this sense of security is
again albsiputed when you glance back at tbe
smoking craters and recollect bow fart lie wluds
bave olten carried tbe fatal showers of mudand
ashes that Vesuvius vomits forth. This is the
time to visit Pom pull and to Inspect what re
Drains of lierculaneum; for In full view, aud
apparently preparing for another outburst, is
Hie agency wnich destroyed them. Hodom and
Gomorrah were hardly more wicked than the
otber cities of the plain. Pompeii and liercu
laneum were certainly not moie Immoral than
modern Naples, lias Providence changed His
f ilens of puulslirnenl, or Is vice to be dealt with
n the old way 7
Thinking of this Scriptural parallel rooalls
perhaps the best description that can be given
of tbe present appearance of Vesuvius, 'i he
flames rise like that pillar of Are by night,
aud the smoke curls upwards like that plilar
of cloud by day which led the children of
Israel through the wllderneug towards the
promised land. At night, contrasting grandly
with the surrouuding gloom, a cone of tire
flashes cousiaully iromathe crater. The sight
is so beautiful, so bewildering, so eagrossiug,
that It was Impossible to bleep last evening.
Crowds of peoplo were in the slreeis, or at the
windows, or driving upon the Chi Ja, watch
ing and commeutiug upon tbe display.
As Ibis letter is written early in the inornlDg

A Barber Suspected of Dishonesty Takes
The Davenport (Iowa) Gazette of the 23d Inst,
has tbe following particulars of the suicide at
that place of a young Bwiss barber, who for
merly worked In that city, where he was ac
cused of crime. In consequence of tbls latter
event be killed himself by taking morphine.
Tbe Oatetle says:
Yesterday morning a young man, a barber by
trade, a nalive of Switzerland, was fouDd dead
in his bed at tbe residence of Mr. Hlcbard Ltch
tenbeld, his employer, Sleffen's building. N. K.
corner of Hecond street and Western avenue.
Dr. Tomson, Coroner, was Bent for, and the fol
lowing Jury of inquest sworn: Aug. Juncke,
Ph. Kuglebard, and William A. Hooit. Upon
examining the coat pockets of tbe deceased,
tn.oe letters, written in a plain German hand,
were found. - One was to bis parents, one to bis
employer, and tbe otber lo bis cousins living lc
Wisconsin. Tbe letters are as follows:
"My Dear Parents, Grandparents, and Relatives;
After all I take the lioeriy to inform you, my dar
parents, that I auall, this evening, the 21st November,

claimed to have lost bis poeketbook.ooutalnlng
a sum of money, and alleged tbat young Wlob-set-
took: it. The friendless young barber,
although protesting his entire innocence, was
arrested and locked up in tbe Chicago Jail,
where be was kept for five weeks. Tbere being
no evidence against him, tbe grand Jury did not
flnd.a bltl of indictment, and be was discharged.
This unfortunate affair continued to prey upon
his mind, and being of a sensitlva nature, he
never got over it. Undoubtedly this unjust
suspicion drove him to take his own life. Ills
employer and friends here have never doubted
his honesty.
Interesting; Information abanl tho
Misses Morgan Rare Instances of De
voted Friendship.
From the Louitville Courier, Nov, 27.
The four unfortunate Misses Morgan, who
were burnt to death by tbe dreadful accident
on tbe railroad, near Cincinnati, on Thursday
morning last, were ladies of education, refine
ment, goodness, and respeolabliily, and, as we
have already stated, daughters of Ibe late
Benjamin Morgan, Esq., formerly of tbe firm
of Price & Morgan, merobanls in PnlladelpbU,
and alierwards President of tbe Bank of Loui
siana, at New Orleans, and Interested In large
sugar estates.
At tbe time Messrs. Price and Morgan dis
solved partnership, tbey each possessed a nand
eonie fortune, and tbey mutually agreed that In
case of pecuniary misfortune or loss befallihg
either of them, the other (if still in goodolrcum
stances) whs to share bis property with the un
furl uuute one.
Many years afterwards Mr. Chandler Trice
failed in Philadelphia, and Mr. lleujumin Mor
gan transit rred to bim a fine row of buildings
on Tcboupltoulas street, New Orleans, dome
years after, aud about the time of Mr. Morgan's
death, the lutter became much embarrassed by
cut'orseirients for bis arqualu lances. Mr. Price
having, iu the meantime, accumulated another
lorlune, after ..the death of bis old partne , re
conveyed the same valuable property on Tctiou
pitoulus street to Mr. Morgan's children.
This is one of the rare Instances, in mis life,
of lailhful, honorable, and undying friendship,
aud quite as exlraoidliiary as that all lour of
the daughters should ho killed at one fell

For the above f.icU v e are Indnbted to au

approach be fled to his cellar, locked it, and
told tbem they were coming to kill bim. They
plead wit h h)m to come out and come up to tue
parlor. Finally be came out of the cellar, and
seeing his unforlunate condition, tbey were
compelled to carry bim by main force to bis
parlor, be all tbe while resisting to bis utmost
strength. Here he told Mr. Hidridge tbat he
should kill him, that he. Eldrldge, bad at

at intervals be would say tbat he knew Mr.

Bt. Louis, Nov. 28. The Republican has a de
spatch from Fort Leavenworth, dated Novem
ber 25, which says: "Brevet Major-General
Custer, Lleutenanl-Colonel.'of tbe 7th Cavalry,
whose case was sent to Washington some time
ago for the President's final notion, was reeelved
here and sentence read before the troops on
drees parnde this evening, Home of the charges
upon which be was tried were absence from his
command without leave, and leaving bis men
iu the hands of ibe Indiana without any efTort
to rescue them; making undue haste on his re
turn march, thereby causing much damage to
tbe stock, and couduot prejudicial to good
military discipline. It finds him guilty and
suspends him ftom rank and pay proper for
Tbe Bine Hldge on Fire.
The Lynchburg (Va.) Republican says: "The
mountains in all parts of the country are on
tire, and the air Is dente with tbe hovering
masses of smoke. Combined with the baza of
tbe Indian summer, whose genial reign Is even
now oer the land, the smoue so obscures the
heavens as to render tbe sun almost Invisible.
The people of Tazewell, as we learn from the
(Gazette, bave had to work day and night lo
fight the fire away from their houses aud
fences. The dead and fallen leaves are very
dry, by reason of tbe protraoted drought, and
the flames devour them ,wlih great rapidity
and fury."

Yesterday the stock of tbe Lehigh Coal and
Navigation Company commenced to look up,
and closed at 31 a decided advance. There
seems to bave been no good reason for the sad
den fall of lis stock, except the series of unpro
fjltlous circumstances which surrounded the
recent acts of Its management, yfe would not
impute the decline to error, so far as tbe Direc
tors are concerned, but It seems that ordinmy
caution would have prevented the sudJen flood
ing of the market with the new issue of stock,
an event which must be followed by a general
breaking up of established prices. But whether
the result was due to maoagerial mistake, or
to unavoidable misfortune is not of so much im
portance to-day. The old President and Board
of Dlrectois have wisely tendered their resigna
tions, and the place of President was tillod by
the election of Edward YV. Clark, Esq., while
the Directorship was accepted by Edward W.
Clark, Clarence II. Clark, John Welsh, aud
George F. Tyler. The Company Is, therefore, now
in new and much abler hands. Under their
tare we can feu uo reason for anything but con
tinued prosperity. The field of its operatior
must be henceforth a mo-t lucrative one
