THE AFRICAN DIAMOND FIELDS. Continued Kxcllemcnl Itle.h Yields of Dln-msnda-Iniiiienne Hush to the DlMClnn. The malls from Durban and Capetown, South Alrica, continue to give details of the wonder ful diamond regions discovered in the Valley of the Vaal and the whole southern part of Cape Colony. The editor of the Katal Mercury has Visited the country and writes from there: We have visited, inspected, and carefully in quired into the workings and yield of the dia mond fields, and we now most unhesitatingly declare that there has been no exaggeration whatever about the matter, but, on the contrary, everything has been underrated. We assert, on the authority of Messrs. Unger, Ilond, and all who have made the subject their study, that the world has undoubtedly never known such diamond mines before. Mr. Unger, the dia mond merchant from Hamburg, who has been in the trade all his lile, declares that by mere surface scratching, not mining, we are every day unearthing stones of a size and quality far superior to those found in the Brazils at a depth of twenty feet and upward; and what is more, that in the above-mentioned mines a five-carat diamond Is seldom, if ever, found oftencr than once in five years, while at the Vaal River fields not a day elapses without several of three, tour, five, six, np to twenty carats, and even larger, being dug out, publicly exhibited, aud disposed of by the finders. The other day a superb stone of forty eight carats was found on the widow Verrei's farm, where there had already been a yield of fifteen precious stones, worth an immense for tune. The average yield is not less than sixty diamonds a day, all of great value. Many of the most valuable "finds are kept secret, none caring to tempt the cupidity of strangers by fcueh alluring baits. People 'Of every rank are at work with pick and shovel. The President of the Transvaal re public, Mr. Pretorius, has 6igned the diggers' rules, and is working away like any other digger. A diamond merchant came in recently from the upper diggings, a mile or so above, with a box containing two hundred diamonds, the greater portion being perfect gems, and the largest weighing 4i carats. There were also stones of 5, 10, and up to 20 carats. In six days he had purchased four hundred diamonds. Another buyer, in a few days, had bought fifty. A party of "four, in three weeks, had obtained four, one being a perfect stone of 25 carats, the other, ti4, XA, and 1 carat, respectively. At Jagersfontein, above Phiel, on the Vaal, 19 diamonds had been picked up one of 00 carats, found by a boy while working with a common fick, and scarcely a foot beneath the ground, t is of the most brilliant water, and worth a fortune. One more fact: A small party from Wepener, In the conquered territory, washed out a beau tiful stone, a perfect gem, slightly straw- at the time staying. This diamond is perfect in shape and without flaw, and made the fourth carats, exhumed the first day, the seconcT, 4 carats; the third, 1 carat; and two more since the large one above mentioned. These men arrived at tbe diggings only three weeks ago, witbout capital, aud without previous know ledge on the subject. A WIFE rOlSOXER. Woman's lofluenre tor Kvll ConfeiiMlon or a Condemued Alurderer In Canada. The following confesbion was recently made by a condemned murderer named Deacon, who is now awaiting execution at jungston, Canada, for the coisoning of his wife: The confession I am about to make Is made of my own free will and at my express desire. I wish it made public so that my case may be a warning to all men to nee troin temptation, whenever tne evil one tries to ensnare them. 1 first became acquainted with Caroline Van coughnet a year ago last February at my father in-law's. Mv wife was ill at her father's, await ing her confinement. My wife's sister-in-law proposed for me to hire her sister, Caroline Vancoughnet, to nurse my wife. I hired hjr accordingly. I had very sore eyes, and Caroline Intisted on nursing and attending me as well as my wife. It soon became known to tne that 6he was in love with me. Her actions told me this. She was all tbe time kissing and talking of love to me. I did not at this time feel auy return of affection lor her. ihis state oi aiiairs lusted a long as two months. My wife was quite well by this time, aud we discharged her. We hired her again the next spring, as my wife was not able to attcud to all the wort outside and in doors. She requested me to hire Caroline Van conghnet. I hired her, and took her to work with me in the sugar-bush. As soon as we were alone she commenced the same kind of actions as she carried ou with me the year before at Her sister s. one Kepi geiuug worse every day until I was completely led away from my wife. She told me that if I would poison mv wife she would marry me in three weeks' time. She kept urging me to do this every day, aud said if I did not she would. I could not even go out of the house for a few minutes without her following me and behaving Improperly. My wife used to tell me that when 1 was absent from home she could not get any cood out of Caroline, for sue was always talk ing about me and watching for my return. Had I not had a kind, forbearing wife she would have put ns both out or doors, lor Caroline and 1 often went beyond tbe limits of decent be havior right before ber. My wife rfow told me that we had no further use for a girl, so we consulted together aud discharged her. After this, whenever l had to go away troui notne to the store or any other place, I was sure to meet her in my way. She had by this time completely bewitched me, and had caused me to lose all the affection I ever bad for my wife. Caroline used to come over to Shaw's after her work was done to see me. She atked me if I was never going to eel rid of mv wife. This constant urging of her nearly set me mad, and I determined to tr-olson mv wife on the very first opportunity. ' The first thlDg I did was to buy half a drachm of strychnine from Mr. Shaw, pretending to Jijyi list I wanted it to pohoa foxes. I ad- ministered the poison several times to my wife, in water and tea, but I did not give ber large enough quantities to cause death until I Rare it to ber in the salts. As soon as my wife was dead I came to my senses, and If I could only have brought her back again to life! I would have given the whole world if It bad been in my possession. My love for mv wife came back to me with double force, and the illegitimate love vanished. Then it was that I saw my folly. If that girl h.vd never mentioned poisoning to me I never would have been here. I am making every prepara tion for meeting God, and nope that my earnest desire for salvation will be acceptable to Him. I hold no malice against my fellow-wen, and am satisfied that the jury did their duty in finding trio iriiillv. 1 di In nnarn with n.11 men. and hre '01 in His mercy will f orgl vo me my sins. THE LOTTERY FEVER. Kent-It of the ftlerrnntlle Library Drawing In nao rrancmco. The San Francisco Jiulletin of the 10th says: "The lottery fever has become an epidemic, and is breaking out from one end of the State to tbe other, as well as in adjoining States. Evil that good may come seems to be a seductive doctrine, for the small lotteries that are shoot ing up under tne shadow of tne Mercantile Library scheme all aim to benefit the educational or some other public interest. As far as Yreka the cltl.eos are getting up a 13,000 scheme, with four hundred and fourteen prizes, to pay oil a school house debt, the highest prize being 5000, the others tapering down from $1000 to $5. Ten thousand tickets at you eacn are to De sold. Now what city will come forward with a lottery scheme to build a church or start a newspaper ? None of these minor schemes pretend to legis lative sanction, and all are liable to prosecution under the law whose operation was suspended in the case of the Mercantile Library. We do hope that the press of the State will refuse to ppread this gambling mtection it tne oiucers ot the law fail to do their duty. Homilies against San Francisco Immorality in one column and local imitation of it in another without an equal excuse look curiously inconsistent. As tne latest phase oi the lottery epidemic we quote the following paragraph from the Marysville Appeal: 'Uur enterprising neighbors in jNevaaa county are figuring on another lottery scheme, having for its purpose the construction of a railroad from Grass Valley to Colfax. It is proposed to distribute $:i00,000 iu prizes, the largest prize to be $25,000, and the ratio oflprizes and tickets to be such that the ticket-holder will have some sort of show to win. The object is a good one, and if successfully carried out will prove a great benefit to the county. Our Marysville citizens are investing to a considera ble extent in the Nevada lottery already inau gurated, w hen, if they would heed the example set by Nevada county, they would not only keep their own money at home, but bring more money here." THE QUAKERS AND THE WAR. Keller for the N u fieri n Noa-Combatants In rranre and uernianyt The Society of Friends In England, faithful to the sentiments of humanity and charity which Have become traditional among them, nave undertaken to collect and administer a subscription for the benefit of . the non combatant sufferers by the French and German war, as flistinjruished- from sol diers relieved by the funds for the sick and wounded. I he liberal ellorls already made in England in this direction have not sufticed for more than partial and temporary relief, for the distress is vast and lar-reaubing, immense dis tricts on the coast of France being almost de vastated, and thousands of people left penniless and homeless, with winter close upon them, and no prospect of help but lrom loreign benevo lence. In Germany, also, many extreme cases of suffering occur, and as tbo season advances the suffering of the destitute must increase in bitter ness. The action taken by the society ot Friends in England to obtain relief Is charaeter istically wise and practical. A central com mittee bf twenty of their members, chosen from the metropolis and provinces, sits permanently in London, and local committees nave been formed in connection with them all over the kingdom. This organization is similar to that formed by the .hnglisa inends during tne Irish famine of 1847. The amounts already promised or subscribed reach about xaO.OOO. Several friends have already gone to the suf fering districts to investigate and relieve spe cially urgent cases, and others will follow. Those going out bear documents from the r reuch and Prussian Ambassadors in London. One of the committee is stationed at Brussels to superintend the purchasing and forwarding of fupplice. A Hebrew gentleman in London has E laced at tbe disposal of the Friends a ware ouse in that city (worth $3000 a year rent), iree oi charge, as a central depot lor clothtug and materials, the latter of which will be made up by the women i riends. "After the battle of Leipsic, in 1813, 4)300,000, or 11,500,000, were raised In the United King dom for the distressed peasantry and others in Germany. No doubt Great Britain will do even more now, for the necessity is greater. Let 1t be our ambition to rival her in such good deeds rather than in war. TIME FLOORS THE WALK I ST. Failure of Wrolos'i Flr.t Effort to Make It'J Itlllea In VJ1 Hours-lie Walk 10 JUlie Dozlna An AbooUIdo- Mirutiaie. AVestou began his walk of 112 miles vlthln 24 hours on 1 uesday night at the Empire Kink, New York, at 24 minutes past 10 o'clock. This time was to include all stoppages for food, rest. and everything, and would therefore necessitate a sustained stretch of rapid walking, or, in more forcible language, Weston would have to walk hisHiest all the time. He commenced cleverly, and his first five miles were made in 58 minutes and 47 seconds, a rate which, if be had sustained it, would have made him au easy winner, and would have stamped him as the first pedestrian in the world of any period. 1 Us next five miles were made in 1 hour, 1 minute, aud 34 seconds, and the next in 1 hour, 5 minute, and 2d seconds. He had only walked 15 miles, aud he already bet; an to show Indubitable signs of sleepiness. The next term of five miles wan made with evident difficulty in 1 hour. mluutes, and 28 seconds. On its completion he stopped and Tested tor lour minutes, complain ing to Dr. Hart of his almost INSt KMOUJiTABLE DESIRE TO BLEEP. He had not slept during the six hours devoted to that purpose, but only dozed, ana now sieeD, which mocked his eyelids when be courted it. came to tempt - him to defeat. Dr. Flint sponged bis head with water slightly dashed with ammonia, his legs were rubbed byau at tendant, and bis cook brought mm some strong essence of beef. The five miles completing sixty-five of the 112 were made in 1 hour, 3 minutes, and 18 seconds, the next five in 1 hour and J seconds, The cheering here was terrific. But to an experienced eye it was plain that the rally was over. The man waa stainrering. his eyes fixed, his face pale and drawn, aud be was walking mechanically. Wallace, on the seventy-third mile, at his request, ran behind him and lashed his legs, smushlug the whip oa them; but tne go was piainiy out of the man and tbe rounds were done less and less raoldlv, until it became plain that be mubt stop before the completion of the seventy-fifth mile. He wanted only one lap to finish it, but he waa obliged to stop, lie asked wnat the time was, , Ote of the judges told him 1( was theuflye minutes past three. "How much have I to walk?" "Thirty-seven miles." "can i ro it?" "No mortal man could do it in yon? condi tion," The poor fellow, full as he is of indomitable pluck, dropped his head, and tears of mortifica tion welled from bis eyes. He intimated bis desire to say a few words to tbe spectators. They at once gathered round, and MR. WESTOH ADDRESSED THEM TIICB: "My Friends: I thank you for the encourage ment you have given me, and I feel that some explanation is Use at this juncture. I am very sleepy. I have walked 140 miles with only one hour's 6lcep. For the last 40 miles I have been asleep while I walked. I wish yon to under stand that this is my first attempt to walk 112 miles in twenty-four conaecutlve hours; but it won't be my last during this walk. You who have bets on this race nead not fear that you have lost, as I intend attempting tbe task again to-morrow. I shall walk on for 25 miles fur ther to-night, on the 400-mile match, and then I shall take a good sleep, and after being thus refreshed, shall start again on the 112 miles to morrow. "I feel quite certain that I shall manage the 400 miles, and I will try hard for the 112, and have no fears t ut I shall do it." BrEEC'H OF PROFESSOR DOREMU8. "Ladlea and Gentlemen: I am requested by Mr. Weston to state that in consequence of, not being able to eleep more than an hour and a fraction prior to undertaking the abnormal task of walking 112 miles in 24 hours, he abandoned it this afternoon. Having since slept soundly for one hour, he commenced walking at 7 this evening, and will continue until 4 o'clock to morrow morning. He will then sleep for six hours, and at 10 o'clock (to-morrow morning) will resume his effort to accomplish the astound ing feat of 112 miles within 24 hours. "According to his calculations he is ahead of his time for completing his 400 miles within five days. "I cannot avoid reference to an important corolarium, in addition to the interesting scien tific investigations: that this marvellous feat of physical endurance is being performed without the use of alcoholic stimuli." SUCH A TEMPERANCE SERMON has never teen preached in this or any other great city." The place was now splendidly filled, and there were at least three thousand present, of whom many were ladies of our best circles. They joined heartily in the applause that followed the Professor's speech, especially the temper ance part. In ten minutes the indomitable Weston was out again walking, his pluck as good as ever. I)rs. Tyng and Potter and Mr. Aspinwall were in the private box arrangement, and shouted encouragement to the brave fellow. lie now walked like a trooper till he complated the 220th mile, the lat 100 being done in 24 hours and SO minutes. EUROPEAN FORTIFICATIONS. Iteturn of the Polled Mtato Commissioners Kent to Inspect Them. Early in July last, a Commission consisting of three of the most skilful engineers in the Ameri can service, viz., General II. G. Wright, Colo nel Michel, and General J. G. Barnard, were appointed by the Secretary of War a board for tho examination of the various means of forti fications employed by Russia, Prussia, Den mark, and England for the protection of their harbors and the sea coast defenses. The Com missioners have been at work nearly six months, and during that time bnvo mule a inlnule ex amination of the fortifications atCronstadt, and a number of other celebrated points of de fense along the northern coast ol Europe At Cronstadt, thete gentlemen, accredited as they were from the United States, were the recipients of the highest mili tary honors by the particular orders of the Czar. Every facility was given them in furtherance of their mission. From each ot the forts visited, they were enabled to bring with them such plans and specifications as would prove advan tageous In constructing similar ones in our own country. It is understood that they have em bodied in their report, shortly to be submitted to the Secretary of War, suggestions by which our own fortifications will be materially strengthened. This report will be submitted to Congress at an early day, where it Is to be hoped It will receive that attention which the Import ance of the subject entitles it to receive. DELAWARE JUSTICE. A Trio lor the Whipping-post. The Wilmington Commercial, in its New Castle court proceedings, has the following items: John Carpenter, colored, who had plead guilty of stealing a cow from John Forward, of Brandywine Hundred, was sentenced to pay f ltu restitution money, costs, on .Saturday next, 20th Inst., to be whipped with twenty lashes, be imprisoned eix months, and wear a convict's jacket six months thereafter. l.dward limggoid, colored, who bad plead guilty of stealing forty pounds of wool from the warehouse of W arner it Co., in this city, wus sentenced to pay ten dollars restitution money, and coEts, and to be whipped on Satur day, 20th inst., twenty lashes, be imprisoned six months, and wear a convict's jacket six months thereatter. Samuel Scott, colorsd.was convicted of enter ing with felonious iuteut tbe house of Augustus Hillyard, at No. 204 Poplar street, on the 25th of August last Mr. Hillyard testifying to seeing the man half way in his bed-room window, and Hiker Sparks to arresting him just after he had jumped from Mr. Hillyard's shed roof. After the jury was drawn, the prisoner asked for coun sel, but the request wan not grauted. lie was sentenced to stand in the pillory one hour, be whipped with twenty lashes next Saturday, and to be lniprisoneu oue year. The Green Bay (Wis.) Gazette, says Senator Howe of that State was tendered th appoint ment of Minister to England in a very flattering manner, immediately alter tne publication ot Mr. Frclinghuyscu's letter declining that mission. A suit was lately commenced in the Fourth District Conrt or Han franclsco, against Pro fessor Thomas Price, to recover $25,000 for the loss of an eye, occasioned by the explosion of a bottle containing oxygen, which the Professor had been using for experimental purposes. The "Selectmen" of Rochester seem deter mined to preserve order at their places of public amusement. At the last meettng of tbe Council an ordinance was passed prohibiting whistllni Ecreamlog, swearing, and stamping at the baHs and theatres. The capital stock of the Haymaker Base Pall Club, of Troy, consists of one hundred shares of 1100 each, nearly all of which has already been taken. Strong additions are to be made to the nine, so that the club may hold its own against all similar organizations next season. Tbe source of the wonderful rain-shower on a single grave at Mobile, Ala., has been traced to a wild-cherry tree in an adjoining yard. The gentleman who unravelled the mystery says it Is quite common at this season to see tbe sap lainng in showers irom tne wiid-cnerry, crape myrtle and swamp-poplar trees. The Boston Transcript bints that, in tplte of time-honored usage, the officer of a pet University In that neighborhood have just had their catalogue printed where it could be done cheapest, aud that consequently the college will lose a bequest of 1 25,000, a member of tbe firm which has usually done the printing having altered his will to that effect. The Transcript anticipates that that catalogue, when it comes out, win be Known aa the most expensive docu ment, ol IU fcUe, ever printed la America. SECOND EDITION TO-DAY'S CABLE NEWS.

King William'. Npeeeh on tho Openlna of the Oorlh (arruiua furllauibul. Berlin, Nov. 24.- The North German Parlia ment was opened to-day. Tbe King's speech was read by commission, as follow : Honored Gentlemen of the Parliament of the North Oeruian Confederation: His Majesty the King of Prussia baa been pleased to assiga me the duty of open Eg the Parliament of the North Ger man Confederation In the name of the confederate Government. It would have given his Majesty great satisfaction to have been present to-day to thank God from this place for the suc cesses with which the German arms have been favored, and to expres. to you how, much thetatlonal attitude and the unanimity of parliament in anarduig tbe necessary means for carrjlDg on the war have aided these successes by tbe vie tone unprecedented iu the military history of the world, which, by God's help, have beta paired through the heroic courage and wise leader Ship of the Germans. The aggression of Prance against Germany In July last has been repelled. The French people mnst have acquired the conviction that the present power, since the destruction of the armies which were sent Into the field against n, 1 not capable of resisting the nnlted military forces of Germany. W'e might, therefore, regard peace as certain. Bad our tin fortunate neighbor a good government, the members of which took Into consideration their future Inseparable from that of their country, such a government would have seized every opportunity to enable the nation at the head of which it had placed Itself by its own act to eleet national assembly and delthrate upon the present and future of the country. Hut the documents which will be submitted to you will prove that those who now hold power In France prefer to sacrifice the strength of that noble nation lu a hopeless struggle. The Incalculable exhaustion and waste which will result to France from a continuance of the war nnder the present circumstances must certainly so lessen the power of the country that Its restoration will be slower than In the ordinary course of war. The Governments, however, re compelled, with regret,, to express the conviction that peace between these two great neighboring fieoples, upon a continuance of which they calcu ated six months ago, will be all the more Im perilled by the remembrances which this war will eave in France, wnen, ny tne recovery or ner own strength, or by alliances with other powers, she shall feel herself strong enough to renew the struggle. Tne conditions upon wnicn tne allied governments would conclude a peace have been publicly dis cussed.
