' The coYerincr f asna' has beVn removed froan psrhsps om-third of the city of 1'ompsu, and tbe pavea streets aad the walla of ths homes stand there to-day as they dId-2000 years ago. The pavements are as they were, and the houses, except tbat they are roofless. A eurieus stery they tell. Here is the house, of a wealthy banker, whose servants perished at their various employ ments. Tbey did not realize tbe terror of the catastrophe until it was too late to make their escape. Skel etons were found in the kitchens wjth eooking implements, in their hands ; they were found just outside the doors, having been stricken down the moment they left cover ; they wertj found in the bed and ev erywhere jast as .they met their death. In the vaults under one house was found a skeleton with bags ef treasure. When the alarm was given he rushed to save his life. loung women were" smetbered in their chambers at their toilets, pros titutes met their death while in their haunts, the sick, the well, the rich the poor all met a common fate. A solelier died at bis post because he would net desert it without orders, his superiors who could give the or ders dying at the same minute. Far- ties were surprised at banquets, and died wine cup in hand, and priests afficiating in the temples died with those before the sltars. Thirty thou sand human beings were wrapped in a shroud of ashes, and all met their fate together. CURIOUS SIGHTS. Curious relics have been taken out of theso houses and preserved in the museums. Bread eharred by . the heat, but in a good state of pre servation ; coins, household utensils, furniture, everything known and used at the time, remained preserv ed under tbe coat of ashes to show the world to-day how they lived 2,- 000 years ago. Pompeii presents a curious sight. There are the walls standing, and many of the frescoes on the walls being as bright as when tbe brush of tho artist left them. The streets are very narrow, tea narrow to ad mit ef vehicles drawn by animals, and tho dwellings are very small in comparison with tbe dwellings of to-day. The bathrooms were always large and commodious, and so were the dining halls, but the rooms for sleeping wero. merely dens, furnish ed very plainly and cheaply. The bed was a block ef stone on ' which mattresses were spread, the room being just large enough to receive it. The Fompeiiaas were luxuri ous, but their tastes all ran to one or two things. They knew nothing of that general average which we call comfort, which insists that the sleeping room should bear some pro portion to the banqueting hall, and that the bath shall not be tho only magnificent room in the heuse. IN ONE SHORT HOUR. One experiences a curious sensa tion . at ; wandering . up and down through the eity ef tke dead. The houses are here just as they were on the fatal afternoon that bletted out the city, and the temples, the theaters, and amphitheaters as well, only it is as silent as the grave. 1 here are evidences en every band of a busy, gay and luxurious popula tion, but the population itself is not. All the record that is left of them are the standing walls, which they could not carry with them. rso description of it is possible. There are only evidences that life was. The life is gone, but what they struggled for in life remains. The stones they trod upon, the walls wherein they dwelt, the couch es upon which they slept, the tables upon whieh they ate, the baths wherein they lay their limbs, the money they accumulated, that is here, but where are they? .Lady and harlot, soldier and meeLfviic, poet and historian all enveloped in one winding sheet, and all gone' in one hour. That is Fompeii. who knows? , Who knows but what cities ex isted 4000 years ago on the very Bite of Fompeii, and that while Pompeii was being snuffed out wise and learned men were, examining skeletons and coins and such things that they bad dug up, to tbe end of determining who they were and all about them? Vesuvius may . have erupted 2000 years before Fompeii, and did just as wild work at that lime as she did for Pompeii. ' ' : Fompeii bad been forgotten for . . a a a e ages. A peasant digging a veu camo upon a painted chamber and be reported his discovery. The earned men, remembering. Pliny: and his account of the great erup tion, dug and found it. Who knows but that 4000 years ago a peasant dag a well near Fompeii and found painted chamber, and that tbe wise men of that city were investi gating just as we are? It is rather an old world, and our knowledge of it does not extend back a great ways.; And, great way.; And, come to think of it, human knowledge does- n't stretch over a very greatsurface anyhow. If we only knew as , much as we do net know ! . ! what was found. I Among the exhumations of which casts were made was that of an old man nrone unon the earthen floor of the cellar of his house, with bags of , gold and jewelry elapsed to his breast. ' When the alarm of the first shower of death fell upon the doomed, city, he sonrrht safetr in flirnt. A hen the thought of the gold that he had toiled and toiled lor so long came 10 him. There was so time for delay. Minutes were verything--8icends counted at that awful moment He started for the " deer, , but he could not leave his treasure.' ' Down into the vault be went to secure it, he grasped the precious barsi, and turn ed to-flv. At-the - verr door the stifling, poisonous blast struck him, and he fell and perished. Twenty centuries after the body was found. the bony fingers clasping the bags to his bosom, as though he were de termined . that death should not wrest them from him. .There was on his face a mixed expression love for his gold and terror at death, and it would be hard to say which was the most pronounced, the terror of leaving his money or that of disso lution. FATAL DELAY. Another in the same house was pitiful. It was a young woman, probably the daughter of the miser. She had warning m time, but ber child was in an inner room, and she rushed frantically to save it, and the delay was fatal to both. The hot, suffocating blast struck her at the door, and she perished upon the threshold, with her child elapsed to her bosom. Both elapsed to their hearts what was most dear to them the father his gold and the moth er her child. Gamblers werO found scattered about tho tables on which they were playing, the sulphurous death sur prised, them at their business or pleasure, as they were hawks or pigeons. The gold' they were play ing for was left upon the tables, and, by the way, to show that humanity is the same everywhere, and in all ages, dice were found in one gam bling room, the six side loaded with lead to make sure of that number being always thrown. The gambler of Fompeii 2000 years ago could substitute false dice for honest ones, and plunder the innocent as well as now. PIIESEUVED FOOD. Cellars and depositories of food were found, some ef them in a good state of preservation', as the shower of ashes had hermetically sealed them. It is a singular fact that we are indebted to Fompeii for the great industry of canning, fruit. Years ago, when tho excavations were just beginning, a party of Cin cinnatians found, in what had been the pantry of a house, many jars of preserved figs. One was opened and they were found to be fresh and good. Investigation showed that the figs had been put into the jars in a heated state, an aperture being left for the steam to escape, and then sealed with wax. The hint was taken and the next year can. ning fruit was' introduced into tbe United States, the process being identical with that in vogue in Fompeii twentytenturies ago. The old ladies in America who can to matoes and peaches, do not yet re alize that they are indebted for this act to a people who were literally ashes but a few years after Christ. There is nothing new under the sun. Canned tomatoes and loaded dice ; the people of Fompeii had both. MRS. FRA XK LESLIE'S N UPTIA LS. New Vork World. : Sirs. Frank Leslie, widow of the well-known publisher, is to be mar ried very soon to tho Marquis ' do .LeaviUe, an Anglo-French noble man who is reported to be all that a maiden's fancy ever dreamed a nobleman should be... Three years ago Mrs.' Leslie first met the Mar quis, and after a. brief courtship ho made a formal tender of his heart and title. She was too much en grossed in extricating her husband's property from embarrassment and did net smile upon her noble, suitor, lie was persistent, however, and tho marriage will be celebrated very soon. The couple will make their home in New York. ; ;- ' The Marquis do Leuville is 42 years eld, and having traveled all over the world is anxious to settle, down. He possesses an ' indepen dent fortune, and, it is said, is desir ous ; of ' figuring in loeal society; lie was born in England and his family dates back 800 ' years or more. ; He claims deseeat from Oliver de Lourucourt, -1 1055, and his family "name was given by Louis XIV, in June, 1650. .' !. The Marquis is said to be a man of broad culture, a thorough linguist and one of nature's born poets if his volume entitled' BEntrev Nous," whieh has gene through eight edi tions, may be taken as .An index. He is fond of hunting, and as a pis tol shot ho has a reputation second to no one in France. Ho ' has de voted some time to art and several of his pictures have hung in Europe an galleries. He is a member of half a dozen societies literary, ar tistic and scientific, and in - spite of all these attainments is said to be a thoroughly good fellow."- . According to the Khartoum cor respondent of tho London Times, the prisons in that eity have been found full of men who have been waiting for years for trial, or whose sentences have long since expired.

Milledelphia' Tlmee March. 34, . . . Mi a'.- . a"' . , . "ine most . remarkable event in. the history of the world . was tho death of Jesus Chris,.," said -Ber. J)r. Thomas A. Hoy t, pastor of. the VDarawr5f ! jrresoyienan . unurcn, yesterday afternoon, in heginnipg a special sermon to : tho medical stu dents. "Its hidden meanings," he continued, are transcendant and it was without parallel, the most sub lime tragedy over enacted. The speaker had chosen his text from St. John, 34, 10. John, he said, stood only a few feet distant from the Saviour and subsequently related what he saw. The subject discuss ed by tho speaker was. "What was tho physical cause of Christ's death?" Several eminent physicians had do- voted years to tbe study of tbe question and a be ok on the subject bad been published by Dr. btroud, of Edinburgh, : about thirty-five years ago, in which he ascribed Christ's death to rupture of the heart. During a - convention of physicians in Scotland several years ago the deductions arrived at in this rboek were presented for their con sideration and they were confirmed. There are, tbe minister said, many cases on record where death has re sulted from violent passions of joy or grief. Pliny tells us of Laced- amoman who fell dead with joy at hearing that his son had won a prize at the Olympian games. The speak er reed several medical opinions on the subject of heart rupture and continued: "There is no pretence that , the spear thrust into the Saviour's side caused death. In fact. Ho was dead before the wound was received. Christ was crucified at 9 o'clock in the morning and ex pired at 3 o'clock in the afternoon, or two hours before . the centurion dealt the blow with his spear. The crucified usually lived from two to three days and sometimes as long as five days on the cress. There is no evidence that disease might have caused His death and no reason ' to believe that He was not of perfect sound health. Some have thought that He might have died from ex haustion, but we are told that He was miraculously sustained during His trials. It was not weakness. Some declare that He voluntarily gave up life, but He did not take His life; lie simply submitted to the conditions under which Ho died. The answer to the question, 'what was the physical cause of Christ's death?' is, ,'Rupture' of the heart, caused by mental agony.' Literally, Ho died of a broken heart." The speaker read extracts from many letters from eminent ." physicians giving their opinions on Dr. Stroud's book and on his deduction as to the death of the Saviour. They all in dorsed his conclusion that Christ had died of a ruptured heart. "John says," continued the speaker, "that when the spear was thrust into the Saviour's side, 'forthwith came there out blood aad water.' " Dr. Hoyt then proceeded to explain this from a medical point of. view. He said that when the spear-head punctur ed the pericardium the blood and serum from the ruptured heart es caped. He said that all this was simply a fullfillment of a Scriptural prediction, as was tho parting of His raiment and casting lets among the soldiers for His vesture. "But what was this mental an guish that broke our Saviour's heart ?" asked the speaker. It was not fear of death, for Ho looked towards that with longing. . 'If I be lifted up,' He said, 'I will draw all men to me He anticipated death as tho consummation of His labors. 'Heproach hath broken my heart,' He said, and then died. He died for usr The weight of human guilt broke His heart." HORRIBLE TREATMENT CF A CHILD. Some time ago ' Mrs. Agatha Blinzly, of Norwich, Ohio, adopted from a charitable ' institution, near Cleveland, Maggie Montgomery, aged about eight years, and if. the accounts are true her life in that family has been a most miserable one. On one occasion soma of the neighbors, hearing the child scream as if in great agony, ran in and saw Mrs. Blinzly burning tho child's flesh with a hot poker. That the latter has ' been most shamefully and cruelly maltreated is evidenced by the wounds and scars on her body. u Tho back of he skull is frac tured and the skin is torn loose from it as if done by violent hair pulling. Her eyes are swollen shut from a bruise in her face. Her feet have beenfrezen or! burned, the doctors are not yet certain which, until she was unable to , wear shoes, and in taking off her stockings the putrid flesh came off with them. The poor child is now abed and her atten- dants are hourly expecting her to die., It is said that if she does re cover her feet will probably have to be amputated. Mrs. Blinzly was arrested on Wednesday. She waiv ed an examination and was bound over to court, her bail being fixed at $1,000. . ;; eawaaaBBaaawaami sawaaw eawaSfBw.Bawai s-a ' 1 The indications at the present time are that Henry B.

Mr. and Mrs. Messick will reside at Fischerville. i aa i Congressman Caldwell of Tennes see voted efor Bandall for Speaker. Of the caucus and the Morrison bill he says : "I shall go into the caucus and vote for the Morrison bill. Not that I approve it, by any means. It is net what Andrew Jackson sail ed a 'judicious revision of the tariff;' it is merely a reduction. There was no necessity for creating all this bad leeung and confusion in tbe party, but we are all in the swamp together and must get out the best way we can. I think the caucus will indorse the Morrison bill, and it will pass the house. It will net pass the senate, and if there were danger that it would I would not vote for tho bill. It will receive a good many votes in the house which would be withheld if there were danger of its becoming a law. I re. gard the attempt to commit the Democratic party to a tariff for rev enue only in advance of tbe meeting ef the national convention as very unwise. If tho party were to go be fore the country on such a platform as that, it would be overwhelraing- y defeated. When the convention meets, it will either adopt the Ohio platform or there will be a split. In my own State the sentiment in fa vor of protection is constantly grow ing, where there is coal and iron, where sheep are raised and where sngar can bo grown, there protec tion is demanded. In ten years from now Middle and East Tennes see, North Georgia and North Ala bama, and perhaps some portions of Georgia, will be as strongly in favor of protection as Pennsylvania and Connecticut aie now. This is "holding with the hounds and running with the hare" smart ly more than wo expected from the able and distinguished gentleman. Senator Miller, of California, has reported from tho Senate Commit tee on foreign Kelations a bill, which prohibits the importation of opium, in any form by Chineso sub jects ; provides for the seizure and forfeiture of packages in whole or in part of opium consigned to Chi namen in the United States ; for the punishment by fine and imprison ment of the persons offending against the aet; prohibits the impor tation by any ono of opium upon vessels owned by Chinamen or fly ing the Chineso flag, even when chartered by citizens or subjects of another country; provides for tbe seizure and forfeiture of all opium found on such vessels in United States ports; imposes a fine equal to tho value of tho opium seized upon the master of the vessel. Whenever it appears that the Government of China has "promulgated appropri ate legislation," prohibiting citizens of the United States from importing opium into the open ports of China or transporting it from ono port to another, or buying and selling opi um in China, the consular courts are authorized to try offenders and impose fine and imprisonment upon conviction. '." . The nprisiasr of El Mahdi in the Soudan is neither for the purpose of dethroning the khedive or for the expulsion of Europeans from Egypt, as many suppose. It is an uprising ef slave hunters and drivers against the prohibitions of Egypt, back of which is English authority. Soudan is tho great slave-trading station ox Africa. It is the groat source of pitnnlv for sDices. ivorv. precious woods, rare feathers, and slaves, tho trade in tho latter being carried on by the Mohammedans, and is de fended by the koran. Vast caravans come to Darfour and tbe interior of Soudan to obtain slaves, which are sold all over northern Africa. ' These caravans penetrate into the interior, capture towns, and carry off the inhabitant into slavery; none being exempt except Moslems and Jews. Tbe exportation of slaves has been nearly suppressed by England and France, and it is,to protect1 and S remote this slave trade that El ahdi has begun jis revol. ' - j To the Apostles every Sunday was an Easter Sunday, The resur rection of their Lord was to recent aa event and tao large a oue for them to await the circling year for its celebration; the return of their Lord was a hope too high, an anti cipation too immediate to allow twelve months to intervene betwiea the days of joyful prophecy.

Wo must not be surprised that we are tempt ed. We are placed here to be prov ed by temptations. Everything is temptation to us. Crosses irritate our pride, and prosperity flatters it ; our life is a continual warfare, but Jesus Christ combats with ns. Wo must let temptations, like a tempest, beat upon oar heads, and still move on ; like a traveler surprised on tho way by a storm, who wraps bis cloak about him. and roes on his ourney in spite of the opposing ele ments.
