A Mr. John An i rews, a popular and well-to-do farmer in bo neighborhood, had dug a well some orty feet deep, and had walled it up about ifteen feet, when it was discovered that ho wall was about *to cave in. Mr. | Andrews gathered up an armfull of short i wards aud went down a pole ladder astened to the side of the well, t:> lay them across the well, so as to present the dirt, as it fell, from filling up that part of the well walled up. He had uot more than reached the bottom, as it was thought, before the well caved in, filling up to a tew feet of The alarm was given, and the neighbors gathered, but all believing him dead, they returned to their homes to make arrange ments to come the next day and dig him out. Mrs. Andrews and two grown daughters, and several smaller children, refused to loavo the spot, bat sat on a log near the well, ctying, until lato in the evening, when all at once they saw Mr. Andrews emerging from the well, covered with clay, and coming toward them 1 Tho children all ran screaming to the house, bolted tbe doors, and fastened the win dows, believing it to be their father's ghost. But Mrs. Andrews ran to meet him, screaming at the top of her voice, "Oh, John! Ob, John 1 is that you? in that you ?" When she reached him she foil fainting to his feet. It seems that when he got to the bottom of the well, he looked up and saw the top giving way, and believing he had not time to mako his escape, he slipped under tbe boards, which he had laid across the well, when the whole thing fell In upon him. All hope, at first, gave way aud he was about to let himself drop into tho water below and end at once his miserable feel ings. But feeling above ho found the clay easily crumbled and hopo revived.

TAUTLINO DISCLOSURES Of CRIME—THE LATE SPANISH DYNASTY INVOLVED IN 1 TIIK AFFAIR. Heptrted Exclusively for thtStato Journal. Madrid, February I.—The means used >y the Spanish government for tracing the assassins of General Prim, have at last >«en crowned with success. Tho govern ment detectives employed to unravel tho mystery surrounding the assassination lave discovered the assassins of the Gen eral. Their names are kept secret ny the authorities meanwhile; but it has been elicited that ono Gonz-'es, a noted bravo of Madrid, is closely concerned With the affair. It is conjectured that he is in the >ay of some prominent persons holding iigh official position under the present government, and that he himself is either he actual assassin of the General, or that lis hired associates are the criminals. It is authoritatively stated that the lynasty, which was but recently deposed rom tho throne of Spain, is also im ilicated iv tho tragedy, which ha* bereft Spain of one of her greatest benefactors. Should circumstances, which aro now n course of development, ba corroborated, here will doubtless be a series of startling disclosures involving the revelation of a listory of imperial intrigue aud crime which can find its parallel only iv the middle ages. The B-cltement In Bordeaux — The Pail. Branch of the Government Denounced. London, February 1. — Advices from Bordeaux state that the excitement, oc casioned by the news of the capitulation of Paris and the treaty which had been consummated at Versailles, is still very animated throughout tho city. The sentiments expressed in tho notifi cation which has been received from the Paris branch of the Government, purport ing to bo official, and taking upon them selves all responsibility of the negotiations at Versailles, and openly declaring, aud proclaiming themselves the Supreme Gov ernment of tho French Republic, and re pudiating and discouraging as illegal the action, while they at the same time, coun sel the authority of the Bordeaux branch, is viewed with the utmost scorn and indigna tion in Bordeaux. Numerous meetings have been convened, at all of which resolutions were passed strongly denunciatory of the course pur sued by the Paris government. Notwith standing the depression which was na ! turally consequent ou bearing of the ca i pitulation, patriotic sentiment still sur vives in tbo city. All theatrical premuta tions hay* ceased, and the theatres and other public places formerly devoted to amusements and recreation, aro now opened wide to tho populace, daily and nightly. Theso places arc crowded with earnest and patriotic audiences. Stirring speeches are delivered, urging a still more deter mined resistance to the opposing forces of Germany and closer unity tor the honor and safety of the French Republic. This feeling is not only observable in Bordeaux, but is shared by the towns in tho adjacent districts, delegations fiorn which have arrived at Bordeaux, who strongly favor a further resistance and offer their support iv tho cause.

This is the first grand jury chosen under Ihe new law, and was drawn by the judge, Com monwealth's attorney, and the clerk ol the The Petersburg Judex advocates the for mation of a Joint Stock I.iiiid company as a means to induce immigration. It thinks that I people will be induced to migrate from other countries chiefly because they may be able to get large bodies of land at reasonable rates, and it is of opinion that land owners can unito and form such a company as is above indicated, not only with the best results to themselves, but the immigrants also. It thinks an indirect, but a great profit to the community will thence ensue from the increase of population. Of the State Board of Immigration it says: They were I appointed to perform a difficult task, and were furnished with no means of executing it. No fault is to be found with them, therefore, for tho lack of any result brought about by them. I The Coming Man. —Tho fact was noticed yesterday that the House of Delegates had begTTu to agitate tbe matter of re-establishing | the Public Guard—the standing army of Vir ginia. If this is done another quarter of a million afexpense will be saddled on the State, $170,000 to rebuild the old armory and $80,000 lor equipping and paying the officers and men forofieyear. The duty which tho guard could perform at $80,000 per annum if rejuvenated again, is now accomplished by privet* parties at a cost of $12 or $15 000 pur annum. Mr. C. T.

The skaters on that night will merely appear in fancy dress; and we un derstand that no onu will be allowed to skate on tho occasion unless ho or she bo in costume of some kind. Carnivals on skates at tho various rinks in the South and West, are very popular.

Resigned. —Mr. Thomas Dodamead, for a number of years past Supetintendent of the Richmond and Danville railroad, has resigned that position, nnd accepted one as engineer and general superintendent of the Greenville I and Columbia railroad of South Carolina. His railroad experience in Virginia extends through a period of thirty years, during which ha has been employed in responsible positions on the Richmond and Petersburg, Virginia Central, Virginia and Tennessee, York River, and Memphis and Ohio railroads. Ho is tho roughly posted in railroad matters, and the Greenville and Columbia railroad in securing his services lias done well. The railroad connection between the Danville and York River railroads, though apparently completed, has never buen used, so far as we can learn, even for a trial trip. The road appears to havo been substantially built. The Danville railroad director, have been con templating for several years past the erection on their propurty on this side of the river of a huge storage depot. If there is any thing to be gained by extended deliberation in the erec tion of tbe proposed depot it will bo a lino af fair. The True Knight. — Messrs. Mostj P.

I The Hall of the House of Delegates was crowd ed last night with a highly intelligent audience, who were entertained for an hour and a halt by Mr. M., with an elaborate resume of passing political event, in the light of prophecy. We were attracted to the place by tbe known repu tation of tho speaker for honesty and out- I spoken sincerity as a thinker. Though we happened to know in advance what position, he would assume, yet wo could not deny our selves tho luxury of listening to one whose manly intellect had brokin the fetters of estab lished formularies, and with tho bible for his guide, dared to challenge and contend with hoary errors wherever founil. Wo do not ] agree with Mr. M. in his conclusions; but wa do admire that heroic honesty to his own convictions that prompts him to maintain them in the face of that prescriptive dog matism that denounces all who see truth in a new light. Contented acquiescence in old "orthodoxy" is the "dry rot" of the human intellect; and hence we hail, as an omen of better thing., tho appearance of a progressive mind, moving in the renlmof theology towards the goal of higher truths thau those that wero stereotyped in mediceval ages and transmitted as a sealed b ink from father to son. Mr. M. i. a Virginia gentleman, and hence cannot be suspected of that reckless tendency which, in the name of " Progress," tramples upon all that is venerable in the past. His mental aim Is manifestly to "prove all things, and hold fast that which is good." Having hatched tbe she'll ol sectism, priestcraft and precedeut are to him of no authority savo as "helpers to hia But we design to state some reasons for differ ing from the position taken by the lecturer, that tbe Jews are to be restored to Jerusalem, and that that city is to be the metropolis ol tbe whole earth, with tho Lord as a temporal | king. We think tbo following points will be I clear to the attentive student of revelation : There are but two captivities of the Jews re ferred to by tho Prophets—one in Egypt, tbe other in Babylon. The prophecies concerning tbe latter captivity and tho restoration of the Jews were all give-n either beforo the captivity (as in Isaiah and Jeremiah) or during tho cap tivity as in Ezekiel,David, Haggal and Zecba- I riah. The return of the Jews from tho Baby lonish captivity fulfilled all those prophecies, and there is nothing in tho Scripture to war rant the expectation of a third return. They have accomplished their use as a separate nation, having preserved the "Word" and tho prophetic "genealogy'Yoncerning the incarna tion of tho Lord, as the Jehovah in whom all ancient prophecies, types, Ac, had their literal fulfillment. With His advent began a spiritual fulfillment of those prophecies—tbe "letter" which "kiileth" is to have no farther fulfill ment. The "spirit" which "msketh alive" is hencrforth to be accomplished and realized by the reign of truth, when He who is the "Light of Truth" comes the second time upon tbe clouds of Heaven that ia upon the "clouds or obscured sense of ihe letter." Hence Paul says that henceforth "he is not a Jew who is one outwardly," and in Hebrew, "ye (the christians of hi.day) are corns unto Mt. Zion and unto the City of tbo Living Qui"—the j Heavenly Jerusatem. It is, ergo, in this Spiritual Jerusalem that the Lord is to reign King of Nations, a. be I reigns King of Saints. In proof of our first I position, (that prophecy concerning the Jews points no further than Babylon for its literal tulfilmont,) we refer to the word, of the pro phecies themselves. In Isaiah xi. il. you And this declaration : And it shall come to pass in that day, that tho Lord shall set his hand again a second time to recover tho remnant of His people, <stc. The captivity in Egypt being first, that in Babylon being second, where is the room for lookiDfr. forward to any future literal realization of these words? In the l-»er prophet, you will find an i qu illy specific mention ot Babylon—c. _ , Zecb. 2. 5— 8, where the prophet Bays: "Deliver thyself, O, Zion, that dwellest where the daughter of Babylon," &c. We grant that Babylon has a spiritual ns well as a literal significance, and that there is now existing a spiritual captivity in Babylon, deliverance from which is vet future. But tbero is a spiritual as well as lite ral sense in niithe prophecies. What wo lift d, therelore, is an eye to soo spiritual changt-s now going on, in fulfillment of prophecy—tbe day of literal fulfillment having past when He "of whom Moses and the prophets spake" sai J : "Woman believo me the hour cometli when ye shall neither iv this mountain nor yet in Jerusalem worship the Father — tho hour cometh, and now ii when the true- worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth. Again the limitation of the literal fulfillment is expressly given, wbeu our Lord says : "The Law and tho Prophets wero until John, since that time the kingdom of Heaven is preached," Ac, ». .. tbo spiritual kingdom. Again, "my kingdom is not of this world," not "to hero, nor to there, for tbe kingdom of heaven is within you." Mr.jlcGruder as a lawyer will understand us | when we say that ho "sticks in the letter"— according to our view, just what the Jews did in our Lord's day, when tbey struck and made shipwreck of their theology. They wantod a «1 tnai" kinj,', and a "literal" i saltation over all tha nations of tbe earth; just such as Mr. M. promised to the elect. A kingdom in which we (the Faithful) aro to come in for a sharo of temporal glory and preferment, is a vory pleasing prospect for our self-complacent Pharisee. But we incline to think that a reign of Truth, fiesbly opening out in the Word, and 1 of Righteousness, morefully exemplified in the life, is a more rational fulfillment of those pro ihecies that sny " Jerusalem shall be, and ba tailed a city ot Truth" (Zech. 8. 3). As John aw this New Jerusalem descending from God tit of Heaven, would it not be wise to look in hat direction for the Light of that City that is o be tbe Light, the joy, and rejoicing of the whole earth ? The prophet Joel 1,3, 17) makes his matter very plain when ho says "I am the ,ord your God, dwelling in Zion ;" since the lion in Jerusalem wan confessedly not the Zion in which Jehovah was then dwelling, why should we longer wait for the Lord to get o an earthly Zion, especially when we think hat, perhaps, Heaven is. after all, a more appropriate pluce for the Lord ot all worlds to dwell? Surely Mr. M. cannot think that the Jroat Jehovah i- going to leave in poison the 'fhrono of the Universe or transfer His empire rom tho inacces.-ible glory to this atom of an earth, leaving all the innumerable earths of the Universe in orphmage, to envy our un merited pre eminence among the planets. But Mr. M. thinks that because the Ten Kingdoms, or the Dynasty of the Ten Toes, did not have an existence until in our times, therefore, tho prophecy concerning the resto ration of tho Jews must be contemporaneous in their fulfillment with the overthrew of that dynasty 1 Too rest, Mr. M. The two things belong to different dispensations. The Too Dynasty of clay and iron went to pieces or separated into Ten Toes precisely in that cen tury, when truth iv science, art, and religion realized a fiesh unfoldment and application to the advancing civilization a,mong men. If the Lord i< not creating now a "new heaven," He St.iinlv is creating a "new earth." Some us think He is as really doing the one or tho ier; and that if Mr. M. will lend an atten e ear to what the Spirit saith to the churches he will h nt the rumblings of that "stone cut out of tbe mountain," which has already i broken in piec-s the temporal dynasty o! Baby lon or the Pope. To any may des'tro to know how pro phecy is being fulfilled from a spiritual stand point, we say read "Light on Last Things," by W. B. Hayden, to be loiitid in the library of tbe Young Men's Christian Association of But time and space fothid oar sny ing more. We have only to remark, that Virginia should ever ch-jrisli nod honor thai* of her sons who, like Mr. M., are seeking ''more light" in the faco of n dogmatic devotion to tho past that effectually oToies every sky-light opening to wards tho tuturo. t< Supreme Court of Appeal*.— To-day all tbe .Iv Igee, save Joynos, were present.
