Wilkesrarre, Pa., April' 80.—Tho subter ranean fire at tho Kidder mines is still raging furiously, but the supposition is that it is being drought under control, as tho vast volumes of heat arising from tho shaft ami crevices in tho earth have lost aomo of their intensity. Smoke, steam, and sulphur ous vapors nro continually issuing from tho ground in many places, and, for a considerable distance from tbo scone, the atmosphere is strongly impregnated and difficult to breathe. It is now impossible to approach tho fire, as every gangway or avenue loading to it has boon CLOSED WITH SOLID MASONRY, in order to prevent any draft of air from feed ing tbo fiamos, and to confine tho steam which is being introduced, and which is found to bo much more effectual than tho efforts to drown out tho firo* with water during tho throe and a half months after tho firo began. Had it boon possi ble to confine to tbo immediate locality of tho firo tho immense volume of water which waa run into tno mine, It would havo boon comparatively easy to fill tho miuo and at once SUBMERGE THE DESTROYING ELEMENT, but, as tho water found a lower level in tho Empire mine, some distance away, a largo por tion of the burning coal was not reached by tho water, and tho consequence was that tho firo spread with such rapidity as to render tho fur ther use of water impracticable, and to drive tho men from that part of tho mino which was burning. of extinguishing tho burning coal is thought to bo working very successfully. Thirty steam boilers ore in place to-day -forcing steam through half-a-dozen largo pipes, and during this week ton additional boilers will bo in operation. The fire will not probably spread further under tho present modus operandi, but will bo confined within an area of 4,500 by 1,200 loot, and tho minora are qnlto sanguine of having it out in a short time, after the present arrangements are completed for generating sufficient quantities of steam, and forcing tho samo into tho lire from above, and through tho walls which have been built to block up tho approaches.

The average American contemplates in stupid bewilderment the tenacious faith of the disciples of Confucius in the religious necessity that wherever death may overtake them tuoir dust must be sent back to tbo riowoiy Kingdom to rest in tbo bosom of Mother Earth. Possibly, it is a silly superstition, but our “ Heathen Chinee ” follow-beings livo up to it over so much zaork consistently than wo live up to our supersti tious. The OnUammo, from Portland, a few days ago, brought down over a ton of tho mortal remains of Mongolians who had shufilod oft their coils iu Oregon. This queer cargo is to bo re shipped from this port to China. The fact that so thrifty a people as tho Chinese should incur tho great espouse they do for such a purpose, proves tho strong hold which tho custom has upon them. Tho moro preparation of tho bodies to bo shipped costs $25 each; and when tho ex penses of packing, freight, reshipmont. etc., is added, it must amount to about as much as an industrious Chinaman, living upon tho most economical principles, can savo in a year.
