A CERTAIN DISEASE. When the misguided and imprudent votary of pleasure finds thut he bus Imbibed the seeds or this painful disease, it too often hnppens thut ail ill-timed sense of shniue, or dread of discovery, deters him from applying to those who, from education and respectability, can alone befriend him, deluyiug till the constitutional symptoms of this horrid distune make their appearance, such us ulce.ruted sore throat, diseased nose, nocturul pains in the head and llinbs, dimness or sight, deafness, nodes on the shin bones and nrinn, blotches on the hcud, face and extremities, pro gressing with frightful rapidity, till nt lust the pulute oi tue uioutn or tne nones oi me nosciuu lu, aud the victim of this awful disease becomes a horrid object or commiseration, till dealli puts a period to his dreadful suffering, by sending him to " lhat Undiscovered Country from whence no traveller returns."

How a Case in C ourt nns Lost. "Oiitiufr the trinlof an important cause nt Ellicottvillo.a circuinstance occurred which exhibited the superior qualities of Solomon U. Haven ns a tactician at tho bar, tho gravity and success with which ho used his satirical powers, and the facility with which he seized momentary advantages. The action wns brought by a Miss Jane Riall against one Puisiler, a wealthy farm er, lor carelessly aud negligently driving a lumuui wagon, urawn oy a span ot horses, ..iviuui, aB me result oi me piaiuliu s carelessness, aud lie therefore refused to make any auicn:ls fur tho damages which she had sustained. The late Judge Mullctt appeared for the plaintili; and Mr. Haven for the defendant. The plaintiff wits a maiden lady, thirty six years of age, who, prompted by her de sire to retain her youthful beauty, was in the habit of tinting lior .i.o..i- ' She usi""- "' uttture was frequently mutated, and in some instances quite out done. ho appeared at the trial with cheeks that vied the richest carnation. .So decidedly youthful was their color, that an imaginative person might easily have taken her for Ilcbe invoking the protection of the law. Seated by the side of Mullelt, whose physique, na tin ally not the most fascinating, reudercd quite ugly by one of his eyes which had been bleared by acci dent, the two formed a group which a poetic paiuter might have sei.ed to exhibit the force of contrast. It is true that a connoisseur might have detected a surplus of the rare and beautiful coloring on the cheeks, for, on this occasion, she had not spread it with her usual soft, delicate touch aud rigorous accuracy, hut then, she was tturrouiided by those who, even if they pos sessed tho power of criticism in such mat ters, were decidedly too gallant to exercise it ; aim to inose at a little instance tiie lady iiasscd for a beautiful and youthful girl, dr. Haven saw before him a very unploas- ant aud difficult task that of trying a cause against a pretty woman. Like all lawyers who have been similarly bituated, he was well nwaro that this circuinslanco would operate against his client ; but, believing he had strong defense that the law was with him ho hoped to triumph over sym pathy. The trial proceeded. Mullctt presented his case with lhat masterly ability for which ho was so justly celebrated. iul he fouud in Haven a cool, collected and wary oppo nent, one who, without any glow of ima gination, was powerful in his kuowledgo of tne law and llie rules ot evidence one wno made up in skill what he lacked in impres sive eloquence. At length the counsel for the plaintiff rested his case, and Haven promptly moved a nonsuit, tin tho ground that it appeared lrom the evidence that the injuries received by the plaintiff were the result of her own carelessness in not continuing in that part ot the uiguway which, nccordiug to tue ai lection sliu was going, tho law assigned to her. This tuotiou brought ou a closely contested legal argument, for in those days leugthy discussions vrcro permitted at the circuit. lu resisting the tuotiou, Judge Mullctt, after discussing the legal questions it in volved, in order to briug the facts within the law as he coustrucdit, alluded in elo queut aud pathetic language to tho circum stances of tho case to tho injuries und sufferings of his client tho doubts of the real position in the highway which the lady occupied at the time of the accident the heartless cruelty which governed the con duct of the defendant, and finally to all those iucideuts which in cases of this na ture arouso sympathy, aud which, though, addressed to the judge, always affect the jury. His argument visibly touched his client ; who, to niae tier emotions nua oer tears, was compelled to bury bur lace lu her handkerchief. Haveu felt that his client's case was suf fering under the burning language of his eloquent opponent, which he saw was af fecting the jury aud even the judge, while it created a strong sympathy for the lady among the members of the bar aud the spectators. He began to feel that notwith standing all his eflorls, his cause was to be lost in thn feeling which her couusel was creating in her favor. For him to attempt any auswer to such a storm of eloquence was nuilo out of the Question, and he pre pared his iniud for the worst, while his client looked the picture) of despair. But it happened that just before Mullelt closed his argumeut, Haven madu a discovery wiitcn he turned to nis advantage, neutral ising all his opponent's eloqueuce. Alter the plaintiff couusel concluded, Haven, in closing the argument of the mo tion, said : "If 1 am not.ruisiaken lu the authorities I have cited, and in ths facts which the evidence discloses, this motion should pie- iujuicu.

Lr At these words the lady suddculy rcmiv. ed tho handklrchief from her face, where i had remained since the pathetic argument oi ncr counsel ; nnd, suro enough, there wns a change ! The flush of youth and glow of Hebe, the bewitching tints, had all fled. The tears which she had copiously shed, in coursing down her checks, removed the paint in places, long and ghastly streaks of red aud white, mingled with spots of such variegated hues that one might have sup posed an amatous painter- had tried his brushes ou her face, not forgetting her noso in me operation, in a moment the ellect of Mulett's eloquence wns dispelled, and, amid "tho half-suppressed laughter of the bar, jurors and spectators, Haveu, vith the most impertutbablo gravity, took his seat. One of the jurors.howevcr, in attempting to suppress ins laughter, had seUed his nose between his thumb and linger, and, while thus holding that organ,h accidentally re laxed his grasp upon it, ind a noso some thing like the toot of nn old-fashioued din ner horn rang throivi1' Hie court-room. Tho effect of this my u amnginud, but it cannot be described ; sufliee it to say, how ever, this strange noise operated so power fully upon the risiblesof all present, includ ing Mr. Mullelt himself, that nn uproar followed, which for a short time, baflled the attempt of the ollleers to suppress. The motion for a uousuit was denied on the ground that there was some evidence concerning the position of (ho lady's car riage nt the time of the accident which rais ed a question for the jurors, but tho defen dant's couusel shrewdly decided uot to in troduce nny evidence himself, but submit the ensa to them upon the evidence of the plaintili, thus giving hisoponent no time to recover from the ellect of the ludicrous cir cumstance which had so emphatically de stroyed his hold upon the sympathy of the jury; for Haven was convinced that this was all he hud to fear in the case, justly be lieving that Mullett could not regain the advantage he had lost if he was now com pelled to go to the jury. Both counsel addressed the jurors. Ha ven, with his close, terse, pointed logic,-wns now cnauieil to gain.anjJJiftVA strength was "one. The jury retired under tho charge of the judge, and after a protracted absence returned with a verdict tor the de fendant. "Haven," said Mullctt, when tho trial was over, "You managed my client's paint ed face admirably. It was your strong point in the case. Her confounded vanity ruined her cause and I hope every woman who daubs her face with paint will come to some such grief." Tito I. ute F.rnption of Venvln. The Naples correspondent of the London Daily Telegraph writing under, date of April 29. gives the following graphic ac count of the eruption of Vesuvius : Oh tho third night the spectacle had further diminished in brilliancy, but those who were not absorbed in spectacular eu joymcnt could discern indications of in creased volcanic energy. The immense tongues of flame, though they had lost some of their dazzling brightness, shot higher up than before. Tho lava aud scorue were also carried to a greater j height. ! The former was ejected in larger volume, which ultimately showed its inerea.so in the accelerated flow of the lava streams. The subterean thunder, which early in the week had inado itself heard but dimly, like the sound of heavy artillery at mauy miles, distance, now grew moro audible, and np pearcd to be approaching nearer tho city. All through this ill-fated night the premoni tions of a catastrophe followed hard upou each other. Yet of what did happen no one could have the slightest warning. It was an incident unprecedented in the treacherous, capricious history of Vesu vius. The sympathetic sky was full of omens. Its crvstal clearness had departed, and in place of it fleecy clouds were driving across tho heavens. From a thousaud-tiutcd ef fulgence they declined into dullness, then into a heavy threatening darkness. Moon nnd stars paled their light ere they were veiled by the haze which overspread the sky. But tho surface of the bay continued smooth and glnssy, uurutlled by even a summer breeze. As the shadows of smoke and flame cast upon it from tho mountain became more sombre it partook of Hair re flected gloom ; otherwise it was apparent ly unconscious of the 'litunlic btrugglo which was rending the bowels of tho earth beuea'.h and around it. DESTRUCTION OF LIFK. As day was dawning a fearful hji ror oc- cuncd ou the side ol tlie mountain next the city. Of late years access to v esuvius has been greatly facilitated by the short railway which skirts tho bny and connects Naples with Castelamare, a towu on the opposite corner. This faces tho inouutain throughout its whole distance, and in its vicinity will be found most of the villages whoso names always obirudu themselves (luriug the progress of an eruption. One of these, Kesinu, is a favorite point for the ascent from. It is not far from X'rof. ralniicrie's observatory, and it eu- iovs the more exciting distiuction of lying in the liue of a great current of lava, Thousand of visitors have ascended the hill nightly from Hesina, driving up as fur as to the observatory, and then walking to tho bed of last year's lava. On Friday morning many such excursion parties wero assembled directly uuder the cone. They had begun to disperse with tho lirst indications of sunrise, hut hundreds still lingered on the spjt. Without a siuglo movement to warn them, the earth opened uuder foot, and the dead lava which they had beeu treading upon as a curiosity turn ed again to molten tire. Those who were not engulphed in the chasm as it burst forth attempted to flee for their lives. Happily the Heel and sure cf foot were 1 Nerlen. Voi. .... nw. . mnny.

I had left them half atl hour be lore, the catastrophe occurred, when they were draw ing to a close their third night's ecstacy over the grandeur of the Moloch whom to the List they will admire more than dread. The flames of the lava, which were being vomited from the single crater, had sunk till they appeared like nn aureole on tho summit of the cone. Jivcry street com manding a view of tho mountain was thronged with spectators. 1 did uot pass one which was uot as silent ns tho night itself. If nothing else In the world can, Vesuvius solemnizes tho signori aud laz zuroni alike of Naples. It hushes them iu to reverence, and fills them with indefinite. unutterable terrors.

My first business on learning the supposed extent of the mor tality was to visit each of the fourteen Eng. lisli and American hotels in Naples. Out of uearly (500 strangers at present occupy ing them, not one failed on Friday morn ing. Many had been up to the observato ry during the previous ni;;ht, and even upon the very site of the uew crator, but an early return home delivered them from tit unsuspected danger. Throughout Fri day consternation reigned in Naples. The lirst touch of peril had prepared all minds to expect llie worst. esuvius gave in various ways sulllcient occasion for increas- ed alarm. Ihe booming and rumbling of the underground artillery sounded as close as if it were beneath our feet. The flow of lava had increased, and two enormous streams wero rolliug towards the I usually higher. It will soon begin to coma sea as if they would sweep away half a I into tbe market, and will give a new impe dozen villages in their course. Windows I tus to buMuess. rallied, and the strongest houses trembled to their foundations. 1 he smoke rising from llie crater was now mingled with vol umes of sulphurous vapor, uud blackened by the ashes it carried iu its furious ascent. There was far more danger in the scoritw than in the lava ; for they wero confined to no channel. Scattering themselves wher ever tho prevailing winds carried them which was, happily, not in the direction of Naples they became firebrands for the de struction of nouses, vineyards, fori sts, and every form of combustible property. On Friday night Naples was a degree lower iu its decent towards abject terror. The bourse had been closed ull day. No one attempted to think of anylhingbut the aw ful uoises uudcr foot, aud the contlagration which was spreading among the villages Iving nt the mercy of tho volcano. Poor San Sebastiuo was nearly reduced to ashes, and its twelve hundred inhabitants had to seek refuge nearer the coast whither the lava and ashes were fast following them. After nightfall, wheu the voleani" the artificial tiieu" i..wieu together in a Plutonian landscape, it was thought in Naples that nil tho towns bordering on llio bay, Porticl, Itecina, lorrem i uroco anu Torre del Aununciata. were in tlamts tie cetlier. The apprehension was fortunate ly overdrawn. What deceived us was the glare of no less than nine craters, all smo king simultaneously.
