Ia THE OLD PLANTATION. d - it A New England Reminiscenee or the Good Old Times. le [Atlsntle Monthly.] II Old plantation days are passed away, perhaps forever. My principles now lead me to abhor slavery and rejoice at is its abolition. Yet sometimes, in the , midst of the heat and toil of the strug gle for existence, the thought involun d tarily steals over me that we have seen better days. I think of the wild rides after the fox and the deer; of the loll l. ing, the book the delicious nap on the e balcony in the summer house, or on t the rustic seat on the lawn; of the long e sittings at meals, and the after-dinner cigar; of the polished groups in the easy but vivacious conversation in the par lor; of the chivalric devotion to beautiful women; of the pleasant evening drives; of the visits to the plantation, with its long, broad expanse of waving green, dotted here and there with groups of In dustrious slaves; of the long rows of negro cabins with little picaninnies playing about them; of the old well with its beam and of the women with pails of water on their heads; of the wild old field a'rs ringing out from the cabins at night; of the "Chrismas git', Massa," breaking your slumbers on the holiday morn; of the gay devices for fooling the dignified old darkies on the first of April ; of the faithful old nurse who brought you through infancy un der whose humble roof you delighted to partake of an occasional meal; of the flattering, foot-scraping, clownish, knowing rascal to whom you tossed a silver piece when he brought up your boots; of the little darkies who scram bled for the rind after yow had eaten your watermelon on the pliazza in the afternoon-and, "as fond recollection presents them to view," I feel the in trusive swelling of the tear of regret. And so it is with every Southerner; tears rise in his heart and gather to his eyes as he thinks of.the days that are no more. The Southerners of old used to be perhaps the happiest of men. There I was nothing to disturb them, nothing to do, nothing they wished done that i others was not at hand to do. Happi ness were not only their being's end and aim, but its enjoyment their one occu pation. Now the cares of life, the struggle for a living, weigh them down. A PERILOUs TRIP. The Hair-Lifting Ride of Two Nevada Miners in a Mining Flame. A correspondent sends an account of ' the perilous journey down the moun tains of two Nevada miners, who made the trip in a mining flume. The flume A is owned by Messrs. Mackey & Fair, and is located in the mountains near Carson City. It is about fifteen miles in length, 6 leading from a lofty elevation down to the plain and crossing in its course deep ravines, skirting terrible preci pices and chasms, and presenting many c sharp curves. It is fed with water from a Lake Tahoe, and empties into a creek near Carson City. This flume, said to 0 be the longest in the world, is used to carry down timber which is cut on the mountains. There are several places in its course where the incline is slight, s and visitors are occasionally treated to a short trip over these inclines in a boat constructed for that purpose. The two men who took the trip were work men, who some months ago conceived the notion of shooting down the entire length of the flume. To carry out this foolhardy adventure they constructed a strong boat, sharp at the bow and square at the stern, and fitting the flume closely enough to keep it steady. The $1 men describe the trip as something ter rific. The heavy boat got a fearful headway, and the men had no means of stopping it. In shooting round the si curves they thought it would jump the flume and precipitate them into the I chasm that yawned beneath. Down the steeper inclines the boat sped with more than express train velocity. The fifteen miles were passed in less than eleven .I minutes! From the foot of the moun tain to where the flume empties, the in cline is gentle, and here the boat grad- is ually lost its terrific headway, and at 1i length glided smoothly into the creek. Unharmed, but scared almost out of their senses, the men stepped ashore, and one of them was heard to remark that he would not make that trip again for all the silver and gold in Nevada.

The Advhtage of Pine Forests to a Country. l Some interes. lng observations have b lately been made by M. Fautral on the a influence of pine forests on thequantity o of rain received by a country, the hy grometric state of the air and the state ri or the ground. It is proved that pines have the property of condensing vapor, f and that in a much higher degree than t leafy woods. Thus the quantity of rain gi which fell over a pine forest during tc fourteen months was 840.70 mm., as ? against 757.75 mm. on the open ground " 300 metres off, showing a difference in a favor of the forest of more than 10 per cent of the latter quantity. s (In the case of oaks and witch- H elms the difference was only 5 s per cent.) The mean saturation of the oi air above the forest was ten-hundredths d' more than at any other station, (sixty three against fifty-three.) The quantity 2 of rain received by the forest ground fo was 471 mm., while 369 mm. was inter- si cepted by the trees-i. e. 0.43 of the aj water precipitated. Though the open oX (sandy) ground received 757 mm., there is reason to believe that the forest ground really conserves more water. These data show what services may be 11 rendered Ly pine forests on burning, ii sandy or chalky plains, which the want of water renders unproductive. Such forests, too, are a powerful remedy against inundation. A Bensine Aceldent. There was a curious accident at Phila delphison Sunday. A Mr. Shoemaker, about to leave the city for the summer, got a water-pot full of benzine with which to dampen the carpets and furni tare and preserve them from moths. In less than an hour the gas generated by the benzine exploded with a fearful con cussion and the room burst into flames. The servant girl was fatally injured her clothes being burned away and body baked to a crisp, and Mrs. Shoe maker was very dangerously hurt. An' examination of the parlor after the fire had been extinguished showed some thing of the force of the explosion and the intense heat of the flames. The window shutters were blown open, glass smashed into atoms, walls cracked and the register knocked to pieces. The heat was so great that a small bronze figure was actually melted by it. - **-~~-- A True Doe Story. This is vouched for by the IBoston Traveller as being as true as most of the dog stories: A mastiff in that city, unmuzzled by his master, resolved to comply with the law on his own ac count. He knew that to preserve his life he must have a muzzle. Early one morning he stole twenty newspapers from doorsteps, stood on a corner and sold them, went with the money to a store where muzzles were sold, made a clerk understand that he wished to buy one and before noon went home muz zled according to law.
