Archibald, ninth carl of Argyle and chiertuin of tbo clan of Campbell one of the most powcnui clans in btotiana, was known not onlr in his Hiirhland home, but on the continent also, by the proud name of MacCallnm More. His father, the Marqnis of Argyle, had been one of I the sternest opponents ol Charles the .first, had caused tlte execution of Mon- I trose, by which' act he drew upon him- bcii ana niH cian mc enmity ui mo no use of Graham, and at the Restoration lost biaihead and his ilarouisate. XacCallum More was permitted to re tain the ancient earldom, however, and (luring the reign of Charles the second was considered one of the greatest of the nobles of Scotland. For a number of years his retirement from political strife saved him from the vengeance of tho house of Stuart: but up on the arrival'of the Duke of York (af terward James the Second) in Kdinbunr as viceroy -of Scotland, the duke finding he was certain of nothing buta constrain ed and lukewarm support from the haughty chieftain, immcdi.-itelv set to work to procure his death. In those davs of bnberv and falso- eweanng, when the mooted question-- of church and stHte embittered the mind of the whole nation, and led astray tho wis est statesmen and bravc-t warriors, it was an easy matter to procure a convic tion of treason, and sentence of death: and especially so in the case of Argyll", for not only did the supporters of the house of Stuart both hate and fear him, but the stern Covenanters of Scotland look ed coldly upon him for his apparent apa- my in religious matters; nmi his depar ture from the risrid Presbyterian ideas of his father, as evinced in his occasional compliance in ecclesiastical matters. lhat. there were no real grounds for Argylo's fonvi'-tifiii of tn-.-won. i proven by the oft-quoted taunt which Halifax hurled in the teeth of King Charles. I know nothing of Scotch law, in v liege," said Halifax; "but thi-. I know, that we should not hang a dog in hnglatid on the grounds on which my Lord Argyle ha been sentenced. Hut MacCallum 3Iore was not fated to die then. He es-apel in disguise to l'rie!aiid. where he owned an estate purchased by his father in consequence so runs the St'otch leirend-of the nre- dictionofa Celtic seer, "that at a futuro day MacCallnm .More be driven forth from the castle ol his ancestors at Inver ary." For a long tine it was not known to Argylc's enemies whither he had fled ; and this fact gave him an oppoi Utility to correspond with his friends at home to such an extent that he concerted a nlan with the leaders uf the Whig conspiracy for the invs'on of Scotland; but upon the detection of the Hye House Plot, tl.e proposed invasion was indefinitely post poned. Argyle never lost his carldoin,hoivever, for he well knew that his bugle-call up on the coast ol" Lorn, would ally to hi standard tliou.-ands of fearless highland ers, who mourned the exile ot'MacCalluni More, with an even greater iiitcii.sity than was evinced in their hatred to the yoke of Kngland. The accession of James the Second to the throne of Kngland, was hailed by Argyle as the time for action, for it not only proclaimed all possibility of his be ing recalled, but it gave hiina powerful and popular ally in Monmout!i,tlie ban ished nephew of James. Argyle encountered many difficulties in persuading Monmouth to join him in Ins enterprise, and hud it not been for the pleading of the Ladv Henrietta Weut worth, liarone.s of Ncttlcsteds, who for love oJ'Moumouth and his exile, holding a wife's position in his household, it is extremely doubtful if Monmouth would over have joined Argyle in the perilous enterprise which eventually cost them their lives. The next difficulty thrown in Argyle's path, was the opposition to his plans fomented among the exiles who had as sembled at Amsterdam, by the jealoasy of two of Argyle's principal coadjutors, Sir Patrick Hume and Sir John Coch rane: It was decided that Monmouth should make a descent upon England, while Argyh, with the Scotch exiles, should re pair to Scotland; to' arouse the clans to co-operate with Monmouth; but at the moment of starting, the seeds of disen sion shown bvll umc and Cochrane, ho were opposed to giving Argyle any real command of the expedition, began to nut forth their leaves, and the bickerings and dissensions grew so violent, tliit for a tunc Argyle despaired of ever reduc ing the rebellious chaos to order Hut at length a compromise effected a lull in the tempest, and Argyle accepted nominal command under control of a jealous commute, which reserved to it self the real control of tho expedition. The English government was early apprised of the conspirators, but on ac count of the independent position which the united provinces, independent cities, and numerous boards of Admirality maintained towards each other, it was impossible to prevent Argyle's departure from the Zuydcr Zee, favored as he was by tho people of Amsterdam, although the States General to whom Skclton, the English envoy, applied, would gladly have pre vented his sailing had thcr pos sessed sitfBcent authority over the stab bora magistrates of Amsterdam, whose ill-concealed satisfaction must have been extremely irritating to Skelton, when they referred him to the Federal govern ment, alleging as an excuse for their non activity in the matter, "that the Zavder Zee was out of theifiwisdiction.- On toe second orMay Argyle's three ships stood out to sea before a favorable breexe, and in foar days the Orkneys wefe In breexe. Upon Argyle's tsodiBg si Kirkwall, two of lib followers, who we-too akoto, --- - -- Lv aksi ""--1- -- i ArfyUT teiied toisr gswdeiif. Imitg nearby, and proposed an exchange. The bishop did not see fit to return him an answer) and this furnished an occasion for Argyle's unruly followers to attack him with their tongues in a much more' ferocious manner than they ever did the English soldiers with their swords. lmmcdialeiy upon Argyle's arrival at Campbclltown, he published his manifes to, explaining his stand-pointin regard to religion, and sent the mysterious cross on yew, set on fire and quenched in the blood ot a goat, to snmmon-tbe Camp bells from sixteen to sixty. In a few davs eighteen hundred ofhis clansmen had assembled beneath his ban ner on the Isthmus of Tarbut. Argyle wished to march for his ancient home at In verary, where he could have won at least five thousand additional claymores to his aid; but Hume and Coch rane, jealous of the power which Argyle was rapidly gaining, succeeded in obtain ing half of Argyle s forces for the pur pose of invading the Lowlands. The adventure of these redoubtable worthies were truly ridiculous. Arriv ing at Greenoch, Cochrane wished to land and obtain provisions ; but Hume objected on accout of a party of miltia being posted in the town. Cochrane accused Hume of cowardice, and ordered an officer named Elphin stone to take a company of men to go on shore. Elphinstone followed the exam ple set him by his superiors, by coolly informing Sir John that he preferred to stay on board the ship, and Cochrane, knowing that he could not enforce hi. command, was at last obliged to call for volunteers to go on shore after a boat load of meal. Cochrane, meeting with little success in arousing the populace to arms aguint the king, rejoined Argyle in the Island of Bute, where, after a stormy debate in regard to the next step to betaken, they finally selected the castle-of Ealan Gher ig, at the mouth of Loch Riddau, for an armory and base of operations, and ad vanced into the country, skirmishing successfully with the troops of Athol, but were hastily recalled by the committee upon the approach of the king's frigates to their shipping. Arjiylc proposed to attack the frigates, but was overruled by the committee. Provisions became scarce, the sailors mutinied, and the Highlanders deserted in large numbers. Argyle, broken-hearted and despairing, at last yielded to the solicitations of the committee, and again marencu ior me jjawinnu, anu soon a: ter crossing theirivcrLevcn encountered a strong body of troops drawn up to dis putc ms progress. Argyle, maddened to desperation by the hot of misfortunes that surrounded himself and his clan, and for which not himself, but his cowardly, jealous and vacillating cdildrtjjucs were alono respon sible, would have risked all in the tide of conflict, and gladly have welcomed a warrior's death; but Hume, frightened out of tho little cnurago that induced him to engage in the enterprise, and believ ing that all was lost, was for immediate flight. Asa last resource, Argyll- proposed a night attack, but none of ihe leaders ex cept Itumbold acquiesced in his plan.and leaving their watchfires bunting they se cretly decarilricd in the boggv moor for Glasgow. The retreat caused a panic in the ranks which soon resulted in a disastrous and headlong flight, and when Argyle arrived at Lilpatrick at daybreak, he found a disorganized mob of five hundred men to be the sole remnant of the invading army. It was now too late to think of collecting the scattered fugitives and renrg.mzing the army, and the chief conspirators im mediately sought safety in flight. Humc'reached the continent and safety b,ut Cochrane was taken and sent to Lo:i don fo'r execution. Argyle endeavored to find a place of gamy among ins clansmen, out tailing to do so, disguied himself as a peasant, and fled across the country toward the Clyde. Fording a stream, he was arrest ed by a party of Scotch militia who Iay in ambush for fugitives. Major Fullar ton, who was with Argyle, endeavored to secure his chieftain's escape at the ex pense df his tiwn life, but was unsuccess ful. Argyle plunged into the water, but finding that his pursuers were gaining upon him, turned at bay, and having no sword, endeavored to snoot down his as sailants, but his pistols being wet, he was captured after a short str-aggle: He ac knowledged himself to be MacCalluni More, but although a number of his cap tors wept over tho fate of the great chief tain, they dared not release him,for their leader, a man named Ktddell, was averse to doing so, and for this act the name of Htddell was counted accursed by the Campbells for more than a century. Argyle's cantors delivered him to Cla vcrhonse, who caused him to walk through the streets of Edinburg bare headedthe hangman with his ax upon his shoulder marching in front of him through High street ; from Holcroo.l to the castle, where he was loaded with chains and consigned to a dungeon. The king ordered hint to tc tortured for the purpose of wringing from hita informa tion of his fellow conspirators, but his captors knew lhat it wan -useless, and the quiet dignity of MacCallum More, whom histories record as having displayed his greatness of soul in bis dungeon as well as on the battle field, awed the. Btinious of King James so that they dared not obey the commanders of their, brutal master.

I mar not have had as many chords of my heart wrung as a Frenchman, whose father's fame was chronicled on that fabric. It was not associated in my mind with fam ily and vouth. it did not fire my na tional pride. Nevertheless I saw it "totter, faH, break amid a cloud of dust, with deep regret, it was hallo wod by art. It had historical value; the bronzo was won by prodigies ot valor from Aus trian and Prussian armies; it was erected by one of the niostjextraoniinary genisu's of modern times, and it had been tor sixty years an ornament of Paris. Its destruc tion is only the irreparable loss of skil ful work and of respectable :ssociations. The deeds it commemorated are immor tal. The example is deplorable: If each party in its hour of triumph effaces the material traces of its predecessors, some of historj,' s most valuable pages arc torn, mens, self respect is lessened, patriotic tears are weakened, lofty thoughts are shackled, and sensuality is unchecked.

Rue C.Mlglione, Uue de Rivoli. the Garden of the Tuileries, Hue de la Pais, its literial streets, tile loiilcvard, Place de 1'Opcru, were choked by dense throngs of people, 1 thought to the. very last moment the column would duty tile iconoclasts, and exemplify in anew form the old fable of the serpent and a file. There was a large wound in the column on the side opposite liic de la Paix. It was in shape a horizontal section of a taiangle. " When I retched Hue Castiglionc work men wen! ."t'il sawing the base of tho column. Workmen were busy throwing sand, manure and fagots along liuedc la Paix where the column was to fall. To my Kirpri'sc I found the windows and balconies from the ISoulevard to K.ia de Kivoli crowded with people, principally women. Danger was despised where curiosity wis to be gratified. The barricade- at tho ejrinr of Pia-i; Vendomo ami Uue Neuvc des Petits Champs was black with workmen, who were busy re moving it. All theshopsand doors were closed. It was not until ."! P.

A band ol a b:.lla!io:i of .National Guards played "La Mar.allsise," and when it ended another ba-id (thorc were three on Place Vcndome, or Place Internationale as it is now caned) struck up " Lo Chant du Depart."

The report, which was as loud a a mtis'itct detonation, came from a capstan which wastufn up by the spikes which held it in position. The men who manned it were knocked in cv erj direction (none were seriously injur ed and the capstan itclf was shattered by its fall. The engineer declared that two capstans were inadequate to the task, and another must be sent for. The bands played revolutiona-y hyms, work men reascended the scaflolding and be gan to work on the column. Tho mob swayed to and fro, "rowing impatient with the protracted delay. Tho major ity of the spectators had been on their feet since noon to secure a favorable view of the vandalism. It was nearly 3 P. M. when the nevr capstan was placed in po sition. Another cable was fastened around the column. Tho capstans were worked very slowly to prevent another similar accident. At 5:30 the column quivered on it base. The crowd drew in its breath with an articulate accent of terror. Do.vn camo the column. The ground qtiiverci. Sand, faggots, ma nurc, flew hissing against the sides of houses.

Our Minister in China, Gor. Lowe, has forwarded to the Secretary "of State the following translation of a report .of an eannquaKe in Jfathang, in bechucn, made by the Chinese Government-Gen eral of theprovinco in which it occurred: " I have ascertained that Bathanir lies on a very elevated spot, beyond the bor- aers oi me province, about ZC0 miles west from Latang, and more tlian thirty post stations from tho district town of Tatsicn, on the high road to Tihbet. About II o'clock A. M. on the 11th of April, 1870, tho earth trembled so vio lently that tho Government offices, tem ples, granaries, stone and 6tore houses and fortifications, with all the common dwellings and the Temple of Ting Ling, were at once overthrown and ruined. The only exception was the hall in the Temple grounds called Ta-Chao, which stood unharmed in the isolation. A few of the troops and people escap ed, but irtostof tho inmates were crushed and killed under tho falling .timber and stone. Flames also sudeuly burst out in four places, which strong'winds drove about until the heavens were darkened with smoke, and their roaring was min gled with tho lamentations of the dis tressed people. On the 16th the flames were beaten down,but the rumbling nois es were still heard under ground like distant thunder, and the eitrth rocked and rolled like a ship in a storm, at the mercy of tho waves. The multiplied mis eries of the afflicted in habitants were in creased byajhousand fears, but in about ten days matters began to crow nuiet and the motions to c-ckxj; The grain collector at Hathang says that lor several davs beforcthe earth quake the water had overflowed the dyke, but after it tho earth cracked in many places, and black fetid water spur ted out in a famous manner. If one poked it the. spurting instantH followed just a is the case with t.ie salt wells and lire wells (in the eastern part of the province) and this cxpht-ns how it bap pened that the fire followed the earth quake in Hathang. As nearly as is ascertained, there were destroyed two largo temples, the office oi the collector tirain Tax, the local magistrate ami tho Colonel, thu Tinsr- Lin Temple, and nearly 700 fathoms of wall around it, and 3;il rooms in all in side; six smaller .temples numbering 'Z'il rooms, besides 1,480 room and house of the common people. The number of pco ple.soldicrsand lamas killed by the crash was 3,200 among whom was" tho local magistrate and his second in office. The earthquake extended from Hath ang eastward to Pang-chali-iiiutb, west ward to Nan-tun, on the south to Lin-tsah-shili, and on the north to the alt wells of .1-tunscz, a circuit of over 400 miles. It occurred simultaneously over the whole of this region. In some pla ces steep hills split and unk into deep pits; in others, hills on level spots be came pecipitous cliffs, and thu road and highways were rendered impassable by obstructions. Tho people are scatterd and beggared like autumn leaves and this calamity to the people of Hf.tharig slfM vicinity was really one of the most destressing and destructive that has ever happened. The Governor General twice incinoralized the Emperor respecting it, who granted aid to relieve the misery, reopened the roads between the post house, and re built or repaired the offices and dwell ing as they were needed. Many are now resuming their occupation, arid the roads are everywhere passable. Mrs. Fair to be laarri. California papers give a full account of the proceedings in tho court at the time tho sentence was pissed. Judge Dwinnclle asked her if she had any legal cause why sentence of death should not be pronounced, and the account goes on to say : Profound silence reigned in the court, broken only by the sobbing of the pris oner s mother and oi the ladies who sat by her. The prisoner sat with her face buried in her hands, but otherwise com posed and motionless, and made no re sponse. After a few moments' pause the Judge, with trembling voice, said: "Tho judgment of the court J, that on Fn day, the t:5ln or July next, yon- hy the Sheriff's appointed, be hanged by the neck until you arc dead, and may God have mercy on your soul." The scene in the court room during the remarks of the Judge and the deliv er of the s;ntence was ono of intense excitement. The room was not crowded, few supposing thit thn case would be closed to-day. The prisoner, whil the Judge was speaking, watched his face eagerly. lien bo said he saw no ground for a new trial, she Ifdrrcd her head in her mother's lap, and wept bitterly, but succeeded in a few minutes in recovering herc-omposare. A number of ladies were prcecnt, all of whom wept on sentence being pronounced. After adjournment of court tl.e prUcn er's mother, Mrs- Lane, confronted the reporters present, saying, with excite ment and anger: "Now, you have got What you wanted, haven't yon 1 You have got her hung. I hope it gives you joy." W ith difficulty she was pacified.

It is an improper manner of per forming this duty to nod, and for the plain reason that the worshiper attracts too much attention. We are everywhere taught to avoid ostentatious display in our worship. The Pharisees were con demned for praying at corners of the street that they might bo seen of men. On the sarae principle the nodding wor shiper is condemned for he is making a public display of his devotions. 2. Nor is it proper to snore in the performance of this duty partly for the foregoing reasons, but mainly because it is a direct infraction of tho golden rule. Suppose, for instance, that your next door neighbor is asleep; by your snoring he will be disturbed, probably'awakened. This is not doing unto others as you would they should do to j-ou. 3. It U wrong to injure one's health while offering worship, and all physi cians admit that to sleep with. the head thrown back and the mouth wide open is liable to produce sore throat and hoarsness. Besides, flies sometimes get into tho mouth on such occasions, and, by injurious explorations, tickle the delicate mcmbranci, . d cause horrible sternutations and coughing, which is very injurious to health. 4. To sleep with the head resting on the arms of the worshiper, and the face buried up in the cuffs of the coat,ts the most improper way of offering a sleep worship, rirst, because it is also inju rious to health, and mainly becauso it is a direct violation Of tue scriptures, which command us to let our light so shine that men may profit by our exam ple. In this case it is impossible to know whether the Christian worshiper is aIccp or awake. It is a positive case of lukewarmness neither the one thing nor the other. A Trrrible Cataitrasae at Jllarra rails. At a quarter past foil? o'clock yester day afternoon, three well dressed young men, whose respective ages were front about twenty to twenty-tire year's, pre sented themselves at Walker's boat house, about half a mile above the cata ract House, at Niagra Falls, and asked .Mrs. Walker, who was in attendance, to let them have a boat. She at first refus ed, but upon their assurance, that thev were only going to a small island in thu river to take a swim, and that they would keep near tho shore, they were allowed to depart. Tho boat they selected was a flat-bottomed scow, aud in it they row ed to the island. From there they start ed straight across the river, with the ev ident intention of reaching the Canada shore, never once showing any dispo sition to head up the stream. The cur rent, as a matter of course, swept them towards the rapids of the horse-shoe fall, and soon nfjcy reaching them the boat capsized and the thfco men were carried over the cataract. They were not seen after the loat capsized. The rlamcs of thu unfortunate young men arc unknown. One of thcnt wore u black suit, with a light-colored soft hat; the second hail on a browa suit, with a brown cap; and the third wore an old overcoat, but had a re spectdUIo suit underneath. One of the party, just before starting in the doomed boat, said to a little boy, "If an old man come along and asks if you have seen .my thing of us, tell him no." it looks very iriuch its it the young men were escaping into Canada to'evade vigilance of the officers of the law on this side, and had neither the time nor cour age td lite tile ordinary mean of trans portation.. A few day will probnbly clear up the mystery. Buffalo Courier. A Paawas Mreef. To lovers df literature Fleet street is, of all streets in London, perhaps the most endeared by reason or its memo ries.
