Of the whole district it is said that nothiug was left not even the land. Vheu the original outbursts in Bantam subided, tem porary relief was felt, but at 10 o'clock on Monday night there was a new aud most disastrous outburst. By 11 o'clock the Papandajaug, which is 7034 feet high, was in a very active state of paroxysmal eruption. It was accompanied by detonations said' to have been heard many miles away iu Suma tra. Three distinct columns of flames were seen to rise from the mountain to a vast height and its whole surface soon appeared as if covered with fiery lava, streams of whicu spread to great distances on all sides, aud stoues fell for miles arouud, aud tho black frag mentary matter carried into the air caused total darkness. A whirl wind accompanied this eruption, by which house roofs, trees and men and horses were carried into the nir. The quantity of aches ejected, was such as to cover the ground aud roofs of houses at Deuumo to the depth of several inches. Off Point Coay the floating pom- ice ou the sea formed a layer two feet thick, through which vessels forced their way with great difli eulty. Tlio rino of vapor prodn ced the appearance of a column several thousand feet high, based ou the edge of the crater. It up peared fron a distance to consist of a muss of iunuuierublo globu lar clouds of extreme vividness resembling vast balls of cotton rolling one over the other as they ascended impelled by tho pressure of fresh supplies incessantly urg ed upward by the continued ex plosions. At a great height tho column dilated horizontally aud spread in to a dark and turbid circular cloud, shaped like an imineiiso um brella. Forked lightning of great vividness und beauty continually darted from different parts of the clouds. Suddenly tho scene was changed. The mountain was split into even parts without n mo ment's warning, and where Piiptiu davnng hud stood alono there were now seven distinct peaks looming up to a great height. In the seams openod could bo seen great balls of molten matter. From tho Assures poured clouds of steam, and the black ejected lanillo flowed in steady Btreams and ran slowly dowu the mountain Bide, forming beds 200 or 300 feet in extent. Exhalations of eabonic acid cas vtero so abundant that birds aud animals in largo mini bcrs were killed by it and a few human beings lost their lives in the same way.

C, Aug. 23. Anecdotes of the late Judge Jere Blaek are circulating freely. On his last visit to Washington, a year ago this mouth, he told a corres pondent that he was present at an interview of the elder Beuuett with President Buchanan iu 1S53. Buchanan asked Beuuett how he had made the Herald such a pros perous paper. "The peopla," re plied Bennett, "support the Her ald, and I art on the principle that the paper in turn should support the people. I try to make it a re flex of public opiuiou, and to fol low rather than to attempt to lead the public." Judge Black did uot like this policy, and bluntly told Bennett so ; ho thought the con ductor of a newspaper should have fixed convietious of his owu. kI do not believe," said he, "in the old adage, 'Vox popull vox Dei.'" President Buchanan was surprised at Black's britsqueuess, Bennett was uot surprised, but a trifle mad. The Judge undertook to squelch the editor. "Mr. Bennett," he said, ":llow me to ask you a ques lion. If you had lived in the time of Christ, wheu the interests of humanity were at stake, wheu the Saviour of the world waa on trial before Pontius Pilate, would you have been on the side of tho mob, the rabble of Jerusalem, tvho cried 'Crucify him, or would you huvo been on the side of the Son of God r Buchunan was about to interpose, thin Wing Bennett was floored. The editor, however, was quick with au answer. I.i that broad Scotch accent, which came to him iu moments of excitement, ho said: "Mr. Black, I should have been on the sido of the mul titude who, as you say, cried 'Cm- ify him.' Had he not been cruci fied, Mr. Black, where to-day would have been your hope of sal- ation." The Judgo put no more questions. 1 he older Bennett nan giveu him his sockdologer. When President Johnson was returning to Washington "after winging round the circle," ho stopped at Baltimore aud address ed a crowd In front of Burnuiu's hotel. Johnson made one of his uidoiii speeches, brimming over with patriotism and allusions to his devotion to the constitution. He was applauded to tho echo, and was delighted with the eftect of his oration. On returning to the parlor Judge Black was tho first to greet him. "Oh, Mr, Black," said Johnson, "tho voice of the pooplo is the voice of God." "Yon don'tjoolieve anything of the sort," said the Judge, miudful of his experience with Bennett, "I do," was the Presideut's reply. "1 believe it more now than ever did." "Suppose," suid Blaek, "the people were to ask you to do something contrary to law,' would you violate your oath of office aud do itt" "So," answered Johnson. "I would say then that the voice of the people should be ou the side of law." "Well," said Judge Blaek, "suppose you had lived in the days of Pontius Pilate and had witnessed that immortal scene of liberating Barrabas ou demand of the mob and turuing over Christ for rrucifixion, would you have re trarded the voice of the multitude on that occasion as the voice ot God!" President Johnson must have heard of tho Bennett episode. At any rate he wbb equal to the occasion. "Mr. Black," said he, "you forget that I have had the ad vantage of eighteen centuries oi history. With the light I have to day, I certainly should havo been nn the side of Judge Black collapsed. He was ever afterward prepared to let too assertion that the voice of the people is the voice of God go unquestioned. met another crowd who were for Hayes. They put the same qnes tion aud he as promptly answered "for Tilden." They too took the old man dowu and put thirty-niue in the some place. The old man didn't go Tery far when they let him up before he met another electioneering crowd ou a similar errand, and the same question was asked the old man. The faet that everything couuertcd with poli tics is an aggravated uncertainty had just began to dawu ou the old fellow aud resolving to be ou he safe side this time bo put up a whine aud said, "I'm jist for who ever you all is."

Aud this reminds us of the sto ry of au old lady iu the northeru part of Georgia, who, during the war, defined her status aud at the same time did not pander to the prejudices of either sidr. The old lady had atwu very little of the war, and when a troop of Federal soldiers came to her house, they asked her the usual questions: "Are you Union f "'o !" she de eidedly replied. "Socesh, theu f queried the soldiers. A atlll more decided "No !" responded the old lady. "Then, what iu tho deVil ure yon 1" asked ' the Captain.

Times De mocrat. Parmar Hay. Sheep Talk. Yon must not collect a large flock of sheep before you get something for them to eat, and that . something must be their natural food. That food is grass- grass that is sodded and perennial Tho stomaoh of a sheep is small and he eats but little but very often, say every two or three hours; henco he should be where be cau gather his own food. The tenden cy of all kinds of grains und dry provender is to make 6hoep un healthy. A little gruin before sending to tho snambles is useful to help futten, but fat itself is a disease, and should be avoided so far as possible in all brooding mil- nuils. Likewise should the other extreme, viz, poverty, bo avoided. I have seen sheep degenerate from poverty more In one generation than they could bo improved in two or three. I seo much in tho papers about sheep loving bitter weeds, briers, sassafras, :'nd tho liko, and they are good scaven gers for a foul farm. My sheep love the cultivated grasses best. I romember once to have killed some sassafras with sheep, but also killed some of my sheep. It was done by confining them too long to the same territory, as well as to the same food. Sheen need to have their pasture changed at least once a month. And this new pasture is as much to force them to sleep in iu a new place as it Is to give a variety of food. No sheep cau be healthy long that Bleeps on the same place aud over his own in cremeut every ntght. Farming World. From a reecut interview with the Georgia intensive farmer, we extract the following: "I notice one poiut iuyourplau that is altogether novel aud entire ly at variance with the accepted idea of procedure iu groeu fertili zing. The familinr plan is to turn uuder the green growth of peas, clover, weeds or grass. Yon say let it lie ou the ground aud rot uutil Spring rnd then turn uuder the mould. Why Is this!" "Oh, I knew that I am in the teeth of all the agricultural jour nals and of ordinary practice. But I am none the less conuiucod of ry position becance sapportee by experience aud cheinieal reason reasoning. Of course the green vegetable matter mu.-tt be rottod before Is is of value in the soil. Now I maintain that it is better to rot it iu tho air on the surface that uuder ground withouf ade quate action of the atmosphere. Decomposition is like combustion it requires the free action of air to go ou perfectly. The abundance of oxygon is as necessary to the ouo process as to tho other. Iu cur hot climate with heavy rains, when vegetable matter is turned under and the air excluded, rapid decomposition inexitablo reanlts Mhis quickly runs into putrefao faction, and an acid rcactiou re suits in tho evolution of water heavily loaded with vegetable acids. These are absorbed by the soil and poison it. By poison lug it I menu roudeiing its plant' nourishment insoluble aud unvnil able." Is not this a very startling theory!

George's letter on super vision is as politic as it well could be. The Corinth Herald says that he carries up both sides so handsomely that the Clarion wel comes it as a friend to supervision, and the Aberdeen Examiner says it's a tine argument agaiust it. It reminds ns of the old Virginia nigger that met a crowd of young ineu who were in favor of Tilden for President, They asked cuffy whom he was going to vote for, "For Hays," promptly responded the old man.

Stonewall's Bridge-Builder. Courier Journal. A useful niBii to Stonewall Jackson was old Miles, the ir ginia bfidgo-bnildor, The bridge were swept away so often by floods or burned by the enemy that Miles was as necessary to the Confederate army as Jackson him self. Oue day the Uiirn troops had retreated and burned a bridge across the Shenandoah. Jackson, determined to follow them sum moned Miles. "You must put all your 'men on that bridge," said he: "they must work all night, and the bridgo must be completed by daylight. My engineer shall furnish you the plan, and you can go right ahead." Early next morn ing Jackson, iu a very doubtful frame of mind, met the old bridge- builder. "Well," suid the Gener al, "did the engineer give yon the plan for tho bridge T "General," returned Miles, slowly, "the bridge is done.

Potatoes and Diphtheria. Dr. M.C. Keith, of Linclon, Neb., writes to tho Chicago Inter-Ocean charging mueh of the diphtheria prevalent to eating white ( Irish) potatoes. He says: Some sev enteen years ago the attention of my father, Dr. Alvuu Keith, late of Augusta Me., was called to the fact that children who were not fond of the tnber known as the Irish potatoes were not subject to attacks of that much-dreaded malady, diptheria. Followiug out this hint, he advised families of his friends to avoid the use of tins vegetable among children, aud uu til his decease ho was accustomed to make the assertion that rotten potatoes produced the throat dis ease known as diptheria. In my proetieo In this city aud Metz has been made almost im- j county the offer has been made to pregnable. The two French forts have been immensely enlarged transformed, and strengthened with the heaviest cannon; while five new aud equally formidable ones have been built so as to com niand every road leading to the city. The old French forts are the very ones which cover the Paris road. Furthermore six strategical railroad lines concen trate in Metz, like the central part of a spider,a web; these being di rectly connected with the great German military railroad system. The railroad platforms b beeu had not proceeded ffr when be ! broadened to such a degree that a treat any free of compensation if they would avoid the use of Irish potatoes.

" Our July report indicates a de creased yield of cotton as com pared with last year of 12 per cent, but owing to the causes al luded to above, the summary of responses ou which this report is based poiut to a decrease or fully 20 per ceut." Tho New York Times says: "Whatever iuteutions the not very reputablo anti-Bourbons who met in Washington last week may have, as to a presidential candi date, they have determined to keep them iu the background. Tho first step iu their pretentious scheme buows clearly euougu what they are after. It is to seek the co-operation of the administration." What ati interesting and instruc tive retrospect is here for a thoughtful man! The carpet-bag ger made his advent into the State of the maguolia und mocking bird after the termination of a martial struggle, gigantic in its propor tions aud iu its results disastrous to the people of Mississippi. But we had yet left some of the real elements of wealth, and our pirits were unsubdued. We had euergy, honor, aud a world wide fame, aud the finest agricultural country that "o'er the sun shone ou." The returned Confederate eterans, the conquerors of Ma uassus and Chtckamauga and many another field of glory, bent their energies to building up our mate rial resources, aud soou there was money iu tho State treasury aud in the county treasuries of tie State. The emblements of indus try were everywhere seen, the workshop, tbe farm, the loom and the anvil wcro everywhere at work. Wheu lo ! from the shades of Pandemonium, or what was probably worse, Grant's aud Slier uiaua slow trains from the refuse population of the over-crowded cities of the North, and the rejec ted reduudaut population of the capitals of Europe, cume aud up peared; tho ignoble, degraded, do spisod aud shameless Carpet-Bag ger, the Pariah of all nations and tongues, the rejected bcuiub of humanity, the castaway from all circles, the humau upon whoso dirty, vulgar brow tho word loht, lost, was indelibly impressed by nature's fashioning baud. What the early August worm is to the top crop; what the locust was a few years since to the Northwest; what tho siiuoou of tho desert Is to the traveler; what the poison of the bohou upas tree is to those who inhale it ; what the seven plagues of Egypt were to tho un dent Egyptian and Worse, this mis-1 cranio brood was to tho honest people of tho State. They staid for years upon us and around us and among us, lucubl upon virtue, intelligence, holiest capacity and frugal thrift and morality. By multiplying the ofilccs of tho State and increasing the salaries and perquisites attached to them, and by bodily robbing the county trea suries, they impoverished the tax payers; by appointing Idiots and thieves and low, ignorant pauper immigrants to high judicial station they brought the law into disrep ute and contempt, aud paved the. way for mobs, violence and chaos, They degraded our eolorcd popu lation, aud spread rapine, robbery, murder, and lying and theft ram pant through the State. They spread financial ruin and universal bankruptcy through the country they laughed at every thing holy, good, uiauly and sin cere, and luid tho beaming fore head of Mississippi prostrate iu the dust of poverty and hutuuia tion. Vet this unholy invasion, worse than that of any army with ban iters, has been crushed out and obliterated a fow dark spots only remaining around Vicksbnrg and a few other localities. The great mass of tho white people of Mis sissippi, reared in .the schools of piety und honesty, spurned asso ciation with them; the ladies of the South turned from tbem and their hungry relatives as if from something horrific, and at last the butter class of well-meaning colo red men and women, refused po liticnl or sociul association with them. Cast adrift from humau recognition iu tho South, the con deniucd thieves aud pariahs thrown to the surfaco in a great war, now seek distant climes in which to luxnriuto with the wealth stolen from tho Southern people. But there is no pluee so obscure, so unknown as to shield aud hide a Mississippi Carpet-bagger. Wherever his person is recogni zed the finger of human scorn will bo pointed at him, and ho will move among his fellows an abject object of private aud public aver sion and contempt "The sea bath drops too few to wash bim clean, and salt too little to season OFFICE RULES.
