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."
It is a melancholy Tact that thousands DIE
victims to this terrible diseuse, through falling
into the bauds or Ignomut or unskillful PRE
TENDERS, who, by tho use or thut deadly Pol
sou, Mercury, Ac., destroy the constitution, and

PAINT AND TEARS.
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
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
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
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-

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
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.

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

to reverence, and fills them with indefinite.
unutterable terrors. When, nfter it few

I am happy to be able to say with conli-
denco that nono of our foreign visitors nro
among the missing. 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-
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"

Naples that nil tho towns bordering on llio
