HEATH AT DEVOTIONS.
An Alarm of Fire. In New York (hutch CaUMH H St1ltpele Ullll l4 of I.H" Six Women and One I'hllil Trampled to Death. ' Ail appalling ilisastcr occurrec in New I York on Marvh 8 in the Catholic church i of St. Francis Xavicr musing the hms of j seven liven. It appears that one of the i Lenten Masses was being celehratctl nt ! which only women anil children wero present, excej)t the oftieiating priests ami ushers, ami about 9 o'clock a false alarm of tire caused u stampede from the gal leries, and in tho rush these unfortu nates were trampled under fool und killed. Numliers of people were in the crush, l'robably when the alarm was raised the audience had in their minds the remembrance of the late calamity at the. Drooklyn lire, and then succeeded a wild rush for the doorways, in which this sad loss of life occurred. The cause of the disaster was as fol lows : A little before i) o'clock a woman ! sitting in the western gallery was at tucked with hysterics and became fran tic, screaming at the top of her voice, and throwing her arms wildly about her. Intense excitement was at once caused in the great congregation, and many of the women, imagining that the building was on lire, began to rush for the staircase leading into the street. The priests strove to quiet them, and succeeded in so far dispelling the fear of the majority that they remained standing until the blessing was pronounced. In the western gallery, however, numbers of women lost their self-control and pressed madly toward the place of exit, u narrow, shglrfly winding staircase, connecting at the bottom with the outside door of the church, and also with the inner door opening on the main hall. Near the lottom f tho staircase there is an angle. Two large woinuu coming together ait this point caused a temporary check iai the hurrying throng. They were immediately pressed against and thrown down by the women behind: them who, being unable to check their progress, were forced to trample on their fallen sisters in their haste to escape or were in turn prostrated. In a moment the moving throng on the narrow stair case was blocked by the heap of prostrate women who sought in vain to regain thdr footing. Wild with terror the women imprisoned on the staircase made des pairing efforts to move forward, and soon the place resounded with cries of agony from those who wt re trodden under foot at the bast of the staircase. The panic became then so general that nothing could stop the rush down stairs, and soon the shrieks of pain were hushed by the death of the victims who were crushed and smothered. As s(H)U as the police could clear a space in front of the church the work of removing the bodies of the unfortunate woman was begun. One after another the corpses were take n up. The utmost exertions of the police were then needed to keep the bodies from being pressed upon by the crowds of anxious people who sought to get a glimpse of the dead, faces. The people who had relatives in the church during the service, hearing of the disaster, ran to Sixteenth street, and eagerly inquired of every one whom they met concerning the fate of their friends. On the a nival of the ambu lances, which were at once telegraphed for, the bodies were removed to the Twenty-ninth Precinct Station House, and it was then discovered that seven persons, six women and a little boy about 4 years old, had been killed. So far as could be ascertained no one else had been seriously injured. Hanged in rows on the Hour of the station house, the bod ies of the victims did not show many signs of mutilation, or even of serious bruises, and it was the belief of many physicians who were called in that they died from the effects of suffocation and fright. Crowds of anxious people soon came to the station-house and eagerly clam ored for admittance. Many were wringing their hands and calling names of relatives and of friends whom they feared had perished. When these un happy people were admitted in small groups into the station-house, a most heartrending scene was portrayed. They passed tremblingly along the lin of prostrate bodies, eagerly scanning the faces before them. When a face was recognized a cry of pain arose, and then the whole room was tilled with sobbings of sympathy or mourning. Among the number of those who called at the station-house was Michael Sullivan. Scanning the face of the dead for a mo ment, his eye fell on a little boy, and he uttered at once a despairing cry, which went to the hearts ot all present. Soon he recognized among the other corpses that of his wife, and he fell on the floor and wept and moaned like a child. Shortly aitcrward a woman knelt on the floor by the sido of another corpse, and burst into hysterical cries of " My sister ! Oh, my sister !" Many turned away from the lifeless forms and went out with looks of intense relief. The Coroner soon arrived at the station-house, and, after a brief survey of the bodies, signed permits to have them removed by friends as soon as they could be recognized. A Test of Unite Endurance. How long may a dog subsist without ftod or water is a question likely to arise after reading tho following : On tho &1 of January last a gentleman resident on Elm street lost ft valuable dog of the spaniel breed. The pnimal was seen last by the owner's children, with whom it went out. Some days alter the dog was missed the loss wiis advertised in the daily papers, but nothing was heard of the missing spaniel until Saturday last. In the forenoon of that day the owner's children went into an empty house near by to amuse themselves, in the course of play one of them opened tho door of a hack room, when the missing dog was found lying in one corner of the apart ment, apparently dead. On a closer in spection, however, it was found that the jxKr animal was still alive, although re duced to little else than skin and bone. Without delay the children had their favorite which was not able, to crawl even carried home, after which some nourishment wo given to it, and before many hours it had so far recovered as to be able to crawl. The disappenmnoe of the dog is now accounted for. On the day when it wis lost the children hap- f)cued to be pbyiy? in the same empty ior.se, and they must in leaving have accidentally shut him in and pone and left him. From that day till Saturday nololy hftJ bun in the empty house, and there the dog had l en for thirty eight days without either food or watt r. To make sure that then was ' no source from which the animal could have had sustenance, the owner paid a visit to the house, and satislied himself, after a care ful Hcnitinv, that there had been no food or water within reach. At the time tho dog was imprisoned it was very fat, which had no doubt much to do with the fact of its having lived so long. Toronto Globe. ' Telegraphic lonipetltion. At last we have the legitimate results of Commodore Vanderbilt's unwarranted intnision into the affairs of the Western Union Telegraph Company. Tho Trib une warned the Commodore at the time that the managers of the other great trunk lines could not tamely submit to his control of the very wires along which thev must telegraph tho movements of their own trains. Hut he had not then realized that a settling day ever came, and in the plenitude of his power he in sisted on controlling the Western Union and compelling suc h men as Mr. Garrett and Mr. Scott to submit to his manage ment of their business. To-day his suc cessor sees Western Union (the boasted H per cent, stock) trembling in the six ties at the bare announcement that Messrs. Garrett, Scott, Jewett, Garrison, and other railroad magnates have entered the direction of the Atlantic and Pacific Telegraph line, and have in a single day added &t)00,000 to the capital with which it is rapidly extending its service throughout the country. This means war to the knife, and a war in w hich all the advantages are on the side of the younger and more energetic company. It is not burdened with watered stocK, heavy mortgage indebtedness, a mon strously expensive organization, lines built at high cost, mifavorable contracts, and the odium of a monopoly. In pro portion to its number of miles of wire, it is already doing double tho business of its elder rival ; and unless Western Union promptly recognizes tho situa tion, reduces its rates, and quits trying to earn dividends on water, the damage it has already received will be trilling compared with what is in store for it. Mr. William Orton has got into very deep water, and has contrived to alien ate most of the friends who used, at such times, to lend him a helping hand. AVe York Tribune. A Thrilling Scene. The following incident occurred during a general review of the Austrian cavalry some months ago: Not far from thirty thousand cavalry were in line. A little girl of not more than -4 years, standing in the front row of spectators, either from fright or some other cause, rushed out into the open Held just as a squadron of hussars came sweeping around from the main body. They made the detour for the purpose of saluting the Empress, whose carriage was drawn up in that part of the parade ground. Down came the Hying squad ron, charging at a mad gallop down di rectly upon tlie child. The mother was paralyzed, as were others, for there could lie no rescue from the line of spectators. The Empress uttered a cry of horror, for the chihl's destniction Beemed inevitable ond such terrible destruction the tramp ing to death by a thousand iron hoois. Directly under the feet of the horses was the Ik tie out; another instant must seal its doom when a stalwart hussar who was in the front line, without slacking his speed or loosening his hold, threw him self over by the side of his horse's neck, seized ami lifted the child, and placed it in safety upon his saddle-how; and this lie did without changing his pace or breaking the correct alignment of the squadron. Ten thousand voices hailed w ith rapturous applause the gallant deed, ami other thousands applauded when they knew. Two women were there who could only sob forth their gratitude in broken accents the mother and the Em press. And a proud and happy moment it must have been for the hussar when his Emperor, taking from his own breast the richly enauvded cross of the Order Maria Theresa, hung it upon the breast of his brave and gallant trooper. American Society Customs. The New York World, in speaking of the recently-divorced husband of Adelaide Neilson, gives some anecdotes of his introduction to American society, he being an Englishman. Lee arrived here a "Britisher" of tho .most ultra type ; he knew little or nothing of America, and was ready to receive im pressions. Ho was acquainted with Sotheru, and Sotheru was ready to give him impressions. As soon as he ar rived, ull manner of stories concerning the customs of the country were poured into his astonished ears, and, shortly af terward, Sothern invited him to a dinner where he should meet ' some of Ameri ca's most distinguished men." Sotheru presided, next to liim sat Lee, and on the other sido sat W. J. Florence. There were present also Dun Bryant, who was introduced as "Mr. Bryant, the poet ;" Nelse Seymour, who passed for Mr. Whittier, and a number of others equally notable as authors ami poets. Mr. Sot hem's guests, except Lee, were duly informed of the designs of their host- designs which were faithfully executed. In tho middle of dinner Florence, reached out to take Sotheni's salt cellar. Sothern instantly pulled a six shooter, oud, pointing it at Florence, ordered him " to put that salt-ct lhir buck." Florence with an oath, drew a bowie-knife and jumped up. Then tho gas went out, four or five pistol-shots were fired, the party broke up and Lec was foimd by tho waiters under the ta ble unhurt, but ready to return to En gland forthwith. Make Your Own Diamonds. Mnnv n.istes have been devised for tho preparation of these beautiful stones. None have, been able in their products to equal the natural diamonds in hardness ond brilliancy; but nevertheless, to an unpractical eyes the imitation is so per; feet that the liiircrcnce can not be distin guished. Tho following formula for making u diamond paste is said to be ono that gives the most satisfactory result It is called " Loysel's " paste : Take pure rllicU 1 Red oxide ft bad W part. Potat.fi, calcine! Unhurt. Horax, cal.-incl 1 l,,. Arecnioua acid 1 part. This produce a paste which has great brillian v and refractive and dispersive powers, snd also a jncific gravity similar to taut of the Oncntil diamond. ITLPIT AND PEW. According to the report of Bishop Marvin, of the Southern Methodist Church, the Japanese olUcisl order for tho observation of the Christian Suiday as a day of rest is obeyed only by per sons who are in the employment of tho Government. He explains that the numerous Americans in the service of the shite refused to work on Sunday, so that the concession of that day to them as a holiday was a matter of necessity. Practically Sunday is for shop-keepers in Tokio the busiest of the week, for it is selected by soldiers and other Govern ment servants as their chief day for shop ping. Isuda, a native who conducts a Government experimental farm, and edits iui agricultural journal, put on his gate on every Suntlay morning a sign announcing, "No business transacted here to-day." Isuda is a decided Chris tian. Mr. Spukoeon has written a brief liistory of his church, and a wonderful history it is. The congregation is old, dating from the time of the first Stuart Kings of England. Twenty-three years ago, Mr. Spurgeon became tho pastor. The " Tabernacle " was opened in 1801, having cost 31,332, It will seat easily O.IKM) persons. At the close of 1854, Mr. Spurgeon hod 313 members ; in 1851), 1,332 ; in 1804, 2,937; in 1809, 4,047 ; in 1875, 4,813. A Pastors Col lege for tin training of young men is maintained at an annual cost of 5, (XX) ; also, an orphanage at Stockwell, at the same annual charge. Its inmates are 240 boys, who are led, clothed and edu cated. Forty-live men are kept at work in the city as colporteurs. A Sunday school of 1. OCX) is one of the adjuncts of the church, and to the list may be added benefit societies ami unions oi every va riety of name. The debate in England which has grown out of the temperance revival is conducted with great vigor on both sides, and in a very practical fashion. Neither party deals much in abstract principles ; statistics are more depended upon for arguments. The "Gothenburg sys tem," which has been assailed by Mr. Lowe in the I'hrtniylitli llecieu is de fended by Mr. Chamberlain, its most zealous advocate. Mr. Lowe favors free trade in liquor; Mr. Chamberlain an swers that it was tried in Liverpool with such disastrous ellects that restrictions were quickly imposed again. In favor of the Gothenburg system of sale by the city governments, the brood principle is laid down that " when the state finds it necessary to impose limitations on the sale of liquor, the control of the monop oly thus created ought to be in the hands of the representatives of the ptople." In Gothenburg, a city of Sweden, drunk enness has been reduced by this plan 50 per cent. It is probable that it will be tried in the city of Birmingham. Snow as a Fertilizer. It is an old saying that snow in March and April is " the poor man's manure," but we are not informed how much would be required to make a poor, worn-out soil rich ; the Boston Journal of Cltun ixtrt, however, tells how a blanket of snow may be of value to the farmer. The body of snow upon the ground in all the Northern and Middle States is very great, and millions of acres of land are covered by it, as with a blanket of the whitest wool. It is probable that sel dom, perhaps never, has so wide an area of our country been covered as during this month of January, 1877. The ques tion whether snow is capable of afi'ording to lands any of the elements of fertility is one often asked, and in reply it may be said that it probably is. The atmos phere holds ammonia and some other nitrogenous products, which are un doubtedly brought to the soil by the snow-Hakes, as well as by rain-drops. Experiments both here and abroad would seem to prove the truth of this conclu sion. Bains are not only valuable for the moisture which they supply, but for what thev bring to us from the atmos phere. During a thunder-storm nitric acid is produced in considerable quanti ties, and, dissolved in the rain-drops to a high degree of attenuation, its ellects upon sous are highly salutary. Jin nil Xew Yorker. Discovery of Ancient Coins. A numismatic discovery almost un paralleled in extent has been made near Verona. Two large amphoric have been found containing no less than two quin tals, or about 000 English pounds' weight, of coins of the Emperor Gallienus and his successors within tho hundred years following his reign. The number of coins is estimated at between 50,(XX) and 5,000. Gf those of the Euqeror Probus there are more than 4,000. The majori ty ore of bronze, but there are some of silver ond others of bronze silvered (tiubrrate). They are all in the finest state of preservation, and, with the ex ception of those of Gallienus, which ore a little worn, they are so fresh from the mint as to make it evident they were never put into circulation. The discov ery has been considered of sufficient im portance for the Minister of Public In st motion to dispatch Sig. Pigorini specially to Verona to report upon it. All the finest examples ore to be pi: teed in the museum of Verona, and the re mainder either exchanged in sets with other museums or sold as may be de cided upon. , Imell. Of Mr. James Ilussell Lowell, a clever young Boston writer says that he is a strikingly fine-looking man, and one that a stranger would involuntarily look after with a spontaneous " Who is that?'' His frame shows muscular power and vigor ous health; he has kindly blue eyes and brown hair and beard, just touched with auburn, through which now and then a silver thread if discerned. He is genial in manner, ond always courteous and kind. He is one of the most approach able of all our oets, and is generous in his estimate of people. His kindly re ception of the different members of the press who were sent to interview him during the election excitement made him very popular among newspaper men. He was equally communicative with rt j resentatives from all papers without re gard to difference of party principles. While he was on unyielding B publican, he did not question the right of a Demo crat to his opinion, and that opinion ho always rese cted.
