Riots in the City---Neglect of Duty.by OUxcitils, &c> Oar city is fast becoming the theatre' where rowdyism and ruffianism are cur ried oa ia their most revolting forms, ua rebuked by the corporation officials.? Gang:' o/ rowdies, not yet arrived at man hood. organized into bands under the ti do of ?? American Clubs," parade the streets Rrtued with pistols, knives, and jvea snu?keis?njaoy of them in fantastic iuii diitguauutj diaguiues?the most aban doned among them assuming the female dress?aud thus ia open violation of the ordinances ?f the aity, a* well a* of every ?eoiiinant ?f Mlf tMpeet and deoenojr, ihato ruffian* are permitted to parade through our street*, aad to assail any one who may have th? hardihood to express a difference of opuiioa with ,themiolv??. Why do not the polio* of this eity nr reet these ptvrties ; at least that; portion of lhe?t wbioh openiy violate the ordi nance* by assuming a dress to which hey are not entitled ? The answer may !)e readily found in the plain statement that '.Lie oily officers belong to the same secret Order, of which these murderowa ruffiuns ?/o members, and ia many cases, it is said, itre leudtn of thoae lawless bands.? The city is under Kaow-Nothing rale, and therefore it is given up to riot and mnr der which Btalk nnrebnked in broad day -ijjht ntuong us. If this state of thiols ia permitted .io exist much longer?if the ci ty authority is eoaiinued in such hands as uow control it?the peaceable citizens will have to imitate those of the city of San Fraaeieeo, and form themselves into a vigilance committee for their own pro motion. Facta show conclusively that there is mil* safety or protection to be exoected ia this city by those who do not bow down to the Da^on of Know-Nothingism.? Ruffian band# may prowl through our streets, altering their partisan crie?, and intuiting by their insoleat bravadoes those that are kuow to be opposed to their bi goiteti and unconstitutional course, and if oae shall dare to avow a feeling not in unison wih those of the sworn order, he is instantly attacked, knocked down and erutally beaten, or shot, or stabbed, as may happen to suit the humor of ruffian ism a; the moment. And to show the forco of the secret oaths, the press be longing to the order is ever ready to de fend thoktf rioters and murderers, and chert}., all the blanw to those who do not inmeiy suiio^it to be beaten anil trampled upob. Tbo?j are plain truths, and speak m thuuder tones the necessity of resis. tance to such a rule as these Know-No Uiugs bare inaugurated. Freedom of speech, and of action are trorlden under ioot by the votaries of this bigoted order, and the determination seems to be, that no one shall think, or act, speak or vote, unless he do so under the dictation of the leader* of this dark lantern oartj-.

Fusion ot Abolitiosism asd Ksow Nothinoism.?We have heretofore called attention to the fact that Abolitionism and tt-iiow-Nolhtngism were everywhere uni ting against the Democracy. Such nos ticea aa the following may be seen all over the country. Let the friends of the Constitution read it and remember its contents. The Hanover Spectator, which t? hghtiog under the flag of Fillmore and Uouelaon, whose names are in staring capitals at its head, thus calls for a union mass meeting in Abbotstown : /?

We aak for i; janattentive potusal: ? ^ ? Richmond, Va./Sept., 6th, 1856 Djsak Sib :?On my return from a short absence 1 found yours, of the 20th ult., asking- my opinion on* the question: "Would the election of Fremont to the Presidency, bring about a dissolution of the Union ?" My answer is., that the ve ry spirit of sectionalism which runs such a mare adventurer as he is, in every seas*, has engendered ao much envy,_ha tred and malice between various sections and factions of our. people, as, to create a wish, in tho minds of many, so'p'trong for a dissolution of our blfcssed Union, that to t?ll them his election Would bring thatlamentable"event about, would make some of his bitteretft opponents vote for him for the purpose of effecting that exe crable end. This above everything else, shows the wrong and mischief of nomina ting sucb a man by such a party as that called Black Republican. His election would bring about a dissolution of the American confederacy of States inevita bly. Why ? For the reason that if New York, Pennsylvania and Ohio were slave [ holding Slates, and Canada were to assail them with half the violence and "all un charitableneBs" which Black Republican ism is assailing us with, there would be war in thirty days by every patriot's time peace. Whether the present state of peaceful revolution, of warlike brother hood, of confederated antagonism, of shakehand enmity, of sectional union, of united enemies, shall unnaturally con tinue, depends precisely upon the issue whether Black Republicanism is strong enough to elect John C. Fremont, with all the demon-ism at his heels 1 You may do what you please with this letter. Yours respectfully, Henry A. Wish. Roast Besf and Ten Dollars a Dav. ?The battle cry of the Fremonters is soon to be settled in " roast beef and ten dollars a day." Colonel John Charles Fremont has charged the United States in one of his accounts for expenditures, while commanding in California, with fourteen pounds of beef per day for each man in his army ! This charge, in this matter of beef, we understand, will be forthcoming from the books of the Treas ury Department. Only think of it?ONE man to tat FOURTEEN pounds of beef in ONE day ! If John Charles gets to bo President, won't the soldiers of his Mariposa army have a glorious time ?? The old Whig war cry of " two dollars u day and roast beef," will be thrown in the shade. But then it is said that John Charles charged, the- government with the beef and drew the money, without, giving his men more than a ration of three fourth* of a pound per day / keeping the thirteen and a quarter pounds for his own use from each man ! What a glorious gor mandizer he must be ! If he had two hundred men under his command, he musi have hud for his own use lioo thousand six hundred and fifty pounds of beef pir day ! That's ? good business transaction, and is proof that John Charles is not tit to be President. [ Wash. Sent. HALLUClSATtON.-Ten years ago. a weal thy farmer named Simmor.ds, living near Newburg. on the Hudson River, had a presentiment that he would die on the 20;h day of Aug., 1856. So strongly was he impressed with the atrauge idea, that he regarded his decease at the time mentioned as a matter of certainly. He selected a spot for his grave, bought an iron railing to surround it, and had a tine tombstone and an elegant cofiin prepared and brought to his house. On Thurs day last, the day indicated by the presen timent, he had an undertaker at hand, and at 2 o'clock in the afternoon, after having partaken with his friends of a hearty dinner, he went to bed for the purpose of yielding up the ghost. He tried his best to die, but couldn't, and was at last obliged to confess that he had been the slave of a ridiculous hallucina tion. It is said that hundreds of people (looked to his house to see him expire. Fillmore and Fries Masonry.?Mr. Fillmore came into public life, on the An ti-Masonic tide, which some years ago overflowed certain portions of the North. Then he was bitterly hostile to all secret societies, organized for only charitable purposes. Now, he is not only a member of the secret political organization of Know-Nothings, but is their candidate for the Presidency. Then he declared that he "honestly" believed " that the spirit of FRt'E MASONRY 13 ESSEN TIALLY OPPOSED TO THE SECU^ R1TY OF THE CITIZEN; TO THE IMPARTIAL ADMINISTRATION OF THE LAWS, aND TO A DUE REVER ENCE TO RELIGION." _Voio he pro fesses to believe, that, "the security of the citizen," requires that secret political or ganizations shall be kept up and main tained throughout the (Jnion. " Wast of Stamina in the Republican ; Party.?The passage of the army bill, j and the triumph of the Senate, which took place on Saturday last, prove, what wo all along conjectured, that the repub lican members of Congress were deficient in stamina. From Speaker Banks down to the latest converts to republicanism, they all lack courage and self-confidence. They cau talk and jabber and write by the hour or day or the week ; but when it comes to action, they are weak in the knees, and a very slight contest wears them out. The least noise or clamor scares them out of their senses, and they are ready to retreat, and wheel about and beg to be forgiven." Tub Woollky Horse.?The Baltimore Clipper (Fillmore,) says, in its issue to day : ?' We believe Col. Fremont to be as good a Union man as Mr. Buchanan. He has uttered no sentiment that we have seen, which would imply disloyalty to the Union. Nor are his supporters in the North properly ohargeable with a disso I lution of the Union. They are contend ing against while the South is contending for, the extension of. slavery to free ter ritory ; and, what is there in this contest which should jeopard (he existence of Union, let th? victory rest where it may?

Imboden, Eiq., a Fillmore Elector from Staunton, has been traveling through this country for the purpose of enlightening our people upon questions of political economy. He addressed an au dience in Beverly on the 22d ult., and subsequently in Buckhannon, Weston and Clarksburg. In Beverly he was met, and his assertions refuted, by Sam. Crane, Esq., and in Buckhannon and YYsston, we learn that he was successfully met by John Brannon, Esq. In this place, he had urgent business out of town, and could not wait to hear a reply from Jas. Neeson, Esq., of Fairmont. It has been unkindly suspected by some, that his back was too sore from the castigation given him before his arrival here, to submit to such a repetition of the dose us he was likely to receive. If the doctrines avowed bj him are those of his party, we would advise bim and his friends to confine their dissemi nation to Fanouil Hall, and Hartford, Conn., and refrain from their expreseion in an intelligent and national community. He threw the responsibility of the slave ry agitation upon the South and the Dem ocratic party, and apparently charged Mr. Calhoun and the Democracy of Vir ginia with being the cause of the aggres ions of Northern fanatics upou the rights of the South. He even forgot that the chief laurel in the chaplet of Henry Clay was the Missouri Compromise, and sought to charge that enormity upon the Demo cratic party. He shed great crocodile tears over the abrogation of that equitable measure, but forgot to tell his audience that it secured the lion's share of the pub 1 lie domain to the North, while it scarcely \ permitted a pittanoe to bsoome Southern in its institutions. In speaking of the un fortunate sectional struggle that was go in^ on in the country, he said that it was ! foolish for the South to contend for the | mere empty right of carrying slaves iato | the territories ; that the South only had 120 electoral votes, while the North had 176, and that we must compromise with ! Northern fanaticism or be driven to the | wall. In short, he advised his audience | to give up all their natural and Con9titu-! j tional rights, and cry "amen" to the fa ! naticism of the nigger stealers. In fact, i we are not sure but he made himself lia ! ble to an indictment for incendiary lan guage, as we are quite certain that his remarks would have been loudly applau ded by the most rabid emancipation mob in New England. He admitted that Millard Fillmore was prejudiced against slavery, but thought with all his prejudices he should be elect ed President, because he signed the Fu gitive felave Bill, but negleoted to say that that bill was passed by a Democratic Congress, and he was pledged against the exercise of the veto power. He allu- i ded to the increased pay of members of1 Congress, and endeavored to hold the' Virginia delegation responsible for it, al though he admitted they had voted against the bill. But he capped the climax of all his Ec centricities by charging upon the Demo cratic party the responsibility of the pres ent increased tax in Virginia. Ha is a a member of the present Legislature, and had served a term or two before ; and of all the internal improvement men in that body, he was the most ultra and reckless in voting appropriations from the State treasury. He, with other friends of the so-called " leading lines," expressed a willingness to see the people of Virginia' ta^ed to double the amount imposed upon them at present, and until they groaned under the weight of the burden, as they were not afraid t? ihare the rtsponribili in hif ^ech hgre to$e ? gi?at ftiena'baur^to^ pi^."'

And we might here, too, allude to his un compromising bpposition Id the removal of the restrictions upon the North-wes tern VirginiaRailroad, but we think.it, unnecessary. *' ' " - The next time - our opponents send a missionary to tbisioqunlry, we hope they will be more fortunate ? ' ? > liJ >' - '? 11$ J u. t- f' f- ? jy Astounding Disclosures. "? The -Know-Nothing and Republican pa pers of the country, have, fpr some time past been in ecstacies over a.most astoun ding " mare's Dest" which they have found?no less thad the offer of the Pre sidency to Col. Fremont ;by the Demo cratic party. The following is the git of this story : " Hon. Geo. C. Bates, formerly Attor ney-General of Michigan, but latterly of San Francisco, made the following high ly important statement in a public speech at Calamazoo, on Wednesday last. We invite for it the intention of all honest Democrats. We quote from the Detroit Tribuue : " When he, (Mr. Bates,) was expected to snil for California, in August, 1855, he was persuaded by Mr. Palmer, of the firm of Palmer, Cood & Co., bankers of San Francisco, to remain until October, when he and Col. Fremont would accompany him thither. Mr. Bates postponed his de parture as desired. But when the time for departure had arrived, Col. Fremont, although his trunks were packed, did not go, but ordered his baggage to the Me tropolitan Hotel instead. This was in consequence of the following facts : " Gov. Floyd, of Virginia, had just ar rived in New York city with the special purpose of haring an interview with Col. i?remont, and the result of that interview was an offer made to Col. Fremont by Floyd, in behalf of the Democratic party, he having advised with its leading men both North and South, of the nomination for the Presidency. He said that party wanted a new man?a man of integrity and who had won distinction outside of politics. Col. Fremont after listening pa tiently, and even submitted to two differ^ ent interviews, and knowing the platform he was expected to stand upon, replied : that while deeply sensible of the high dis tinction of the proposition made him, and flattered by the promises it extended, yet with his opinion of the repeal of the Mis souri Compromise it would be impossible for him to entertain the proposition. He considered that repeal on infamous breach of plighted faith, and should never desist denouncing the act and its authors. Col. r remont planted himself impregnnbly on this position.' " Now, suppose every word of this state ment wns literally true, what would it signify ? Is Gov. Floyd the Democratic party of the wholu United States, or even of the Stale of Virginia, one thirty-first part of it ? We do not so understood it, and eonsequently, even if he had offered to support Mr. Fremont for the Presiden cy, it by no means implies that he was the choice of the Democratic party. But even this poor foundation upon which to build a "roorback," is torn from beneath the disclosure-makers by the following card published in the Washington Star by Mr. Floyd : ' Abingdon, Va., 6th Sept. 1856. I hasten to answer your kind note re ceived this morning, and to say that there 13 scarcely a shadow of foundation for the statement contained in the slip you sent me. i never had an interview with Fre mont except at his own seeking or that of his special friends. 1 never made any of fer to him of anything for myself or oth ers. He never expressed any censure for the repeal of the Missouri Compro mise in my hearing. All that is gammon from beginning to end. I never saw him until 1 met him in New York ; and. after a short acquaintance, considered him verv ligh.t metal (notwithstanding Mariposa) and extremely ill informed upon all poli tical subjects. I broke off all communi cation with him were on political subjects because I sawthat the influence that'gov verned him was abolition. These are s.mple facts ; and the only thing about it which worries me is to think that the interviews of gentlemen, in the confi dence of privacy, should be made the subject of newspaper discussion, and mis represented. too. for the purpose of giving something of effect to the fables they are filled with. JOHN B. FLOYD. We suppose that the truth of the mat ter is about this :?that Mr. Floyd was hunting a candidate of his own, but find-j ing the Mariposa Colonel of too " light metal," he " drapped him most inconti nently," and that however little confi dence our opponents profess to have in the selection of candidates by the Democratic ] party, they evidently consider such a se? lectkn or even its contemplation, a com pliment to any person. The idea of the Democratic party, that has never nominated a candidate for the j Presidency, that was not a statesman, I running after such a political novice as John G. Fremont, is almost too ridiculous for serious contemplation, and this story can only be excused as one of the despe rate shifts of a desperate party. Getting DasrER&TS.?Mr. Humphrey Marshall, of Kentucky, at a political mee ting in Leesburg, Va., recently declared that be had as leave see JOHN C. FRE MONT OR THE DEVIL HIMSELF made President as James Buchanan; and many Know-Nothings present applauded him. Loudoun, Va., Know-Nothings ap plauding such a sentiment. Truly they have become desperate and lost their senses. The poor, pilifal Know-Nothings of Loadoun would sooner see Satan seated in the Presidential Chair than James Bu chanan.

The following, from the correspondent of the New York Journal of Commerce, is con firmed by some of the San Francisco pa pers : . ,!a Since the discharge of Teriy and all other prisoners in the custody of the com mittee, that body has to a certain extent contradicted their operations, by relin quishing half of their garrison and their guard, -and also dispensing with much of their artillery and other munitions of de fense. The expenses of the committee have now been reduoed to about $3,000 per month, which will no doubt be con tinued until after the fall elections. New members are constantly being enrolled, and there are otherwise no indications of disbandment ; the voluntary guard on duty will necessarily be small, both night and day, while the general Committee will ever stand ready to assemble at the bell, should occasion arise, which we trust will not be the case. Wm. T. Ooleman, Esq., the president of the committee, has arrived at New York. An Astonishing Alan, Famed Through out the World. New York and London are now the great munufacturing depots of Holloway's Pills and Ointment. From No. 80, Mai den Lane, this city, to No, 244 Strand, London, are sent forth, daily, millions of boxes and pots of those inestimable med icines. The heavy duty imposed by our government upon patent medicines, and coustantly increasing sales of Holloway's l Pills and Ointment in this country, deter mined their proprietor to make this city his residence. Our republican system of government is also in harmony with the predictions of Professor Holloway ; and though Kings and Emperors have confer red upon him honors, and especial favors, these will never be so gratifying 10 him as the grateful hearts of millions of free citi zens, who without any endorsement of sovereign authority, freely patronize his celebrated remedies for the prevention and removal of disease. As a member of the medical faculty, having long witnessed the inefficiency of the profession in curing disease, and be in" familiar with the error* and follies of O the profession, we feel it an imperative duty to acquaint the American public with the urrival of this distinguished physician in our city. His fame, in mea sure, preceded him to our shores, but the extent of the good ho has done in the world has never yet been proclaimed to the American publio. Great as his re> putation is, it is destined to increase far beyond that which ever adorned the char acter of any man whose profession was that of healing the sick. We shall embrace other occasions to explain to the American people the sys tem, the theory and mode of cure adopted by Professor Holloway. His Pills and Ointment, the one taken internally, and the other applied externally, act in har monious conjunction, and if his directions are followed, will eradicate every disease incident to man in all climes. They pu?. rify and cleans the body, and restore health and action to every organ. Our space will not permit us to say more at this ime, respecting this distinguished man, and his celebrated remedies. He has one ambition, and it is an honorable one. He wishes to have the world for a patient; and ho will succeed in his desire. It is onr object to address Ihe Ameri can public, in a scries of articles, showing conclusively that, in the whole history of medical science, no medicines have ever been offered for their use which are so efficacious in restoring health and pre venting disease a3 those of Professor Holloway. In this series of articles, we 6hall necessarily explain much of the hu man system, and those physiological laws of life controling our bodies, both in health and disease. The American pub lic are sufficiently intelligent to judge of their own interests, and it is no longer in the power of those styleing themselves regular physicians to conceal from them important truths concerning their health. [New York Citizen. Latinr of tub Corner Stone.?The ceremony of laying the Corner Stone of the new Custom House was performed on the 17th ult., by the members of the Wheeling Lodge, No. 128, of Free and Accepted Masons. The membership of other Lodges, Encampments, <kc., turn ed out in large numbers, as well at home as from abroad, while the display of the Odd Fellows, Red Men, Temple of Honor, Firemen and Military was numerous and more creditable to the different associa tions, than any heretofore. The grand procession formed on Fourth, Union and Market streets, the right at Quincy, and the column marched over the programme announced, extending, probably over a mile in length. The Corner Stone was laid af 30 min utes past one, precisely, immediately af ter which, the Firemen moved off to corns plete their annual parade. The Rev. James D. McCabe, of Balti more, the Orator of the day, then deliv ered a lengthy and glowing address, which, while it reflected on bim great credit as a speaker, elicited the warmest encomiums from his thousands of atten tive listeners. A large number of articles of different kinds, were deposited in the Stone. -D la there such .a deity as the god or goddess of Curiosity ? But whether there be' or not, there are vast multitudes who bow around that shrine, than whom the Pagans with all their most cruel sac rificial-tortures, being evidence of-their earnestness, were not much more devout in thtir worship, and their devotions were carried .on, sometimes, at not much grea ter cost of bodily ease and comfort, as the "? im to mwt at the M purpose of exploring; its dimensions ; oar curiosity having been oonsiderfiblyjS^? ted in regard thereto.

The sun was just beginning to lay aside his royal robes across the western hills, as if to prepare for his wonted rest, shedding a mellow light over the huge sides of the majestic Alleghanies in the east, and a still softer tinge orer the broad beautiful valley in the South, through which the "River of the Mountains" wound its course for all the world like a mighty belt of silver. We were requested, as we passed along, to leave a lock of hair, or some souvenir., as they feared they would never see us' this side the cave again. The loving wife, or tender sister grew eloquent in their re monstrances. " Suppose it should un ceremoniously 'shut its mouth' on you, and its mammoth grinders would grind you to atoms ?" We suggested that we would make rather poor diet, (!) as some of us were such hard cases that we would not be very digestible; bo we turned a deaf ear to their entreaties, being "fatally bent" on exploring the oave. Just as " the twilight bat was flitting," we reached the residence of Messrs. Ni cholas and George Parsons, situated in what is called the " Horse Shoe fiend," where we met a kind reception. After a hearty supper we whiled away an hour or so in a most agreeable manner, crack ing jokes, smoking the "pipe of peace," (which, by way of parenthesis, was ra ther too strong for my peace,) &o. <fco., (And-so-forth has a world of meaning in that connection?has n't it, eh ?) when? yes?tehenour host kindly (?) lighted us (mti)tobed.

Would that I could;present to your many intelligent readers even an outline of the view, such as I now have, from the summit of Fork Mountain. But, sir, the thing re morally impossible.

Even when i I clad in their wintry robe, tboy were grand and beautiful ; how infinitely more so when dressed in summer's emerald man tle ! Then those brave old oaks, swing ing their huge bare arms in defiance of winter's fierce blasts, now send forth soft tender feaves, sending back a thousand kisses to the gentle breeze. What a he as venly pleasure to toil up such a moun tain as this, inhaling the sweet-scented mountain air ht every step, and here to await the approach of the king of day !? A spirit of purest love seems to pervade all nature, both earth and sky, when, just ere he scales yonder eastern summit, he flings up a gorgeous banner of purple and gold, whose sweeping folds float majesti cally along the azure sky. Now the birds ?nature's orchestra?begin their matin songs. AH join in one harmonious cho rus their little bosoms swelling with their weight of joy. Anon a calm, holy si lence reigns on all around. How like worship is thii, although a senseless ado ration f Who could look opon a scene like this and cherish envy or malice ?? Who could bear to be the only n6te of discord, when all is perfect harmony ?? Whose heart so cold that all could not join in one universal song of praise to the Great, the Holy and the High ! If man would only commune with nature in all her beatiful variety, he would be less sor did . low and grovelling in bis feelings. From this point?Fork Mountain?you may Black and Shaver's forks of Cheat on either tide, and for a great distance after their waters unite, alternately flow ing between evergreen banks, rushing through mountain barriers, leaping in wild gladness from rock to rock, sparkr ling with a crown of rainbow and pearls, and again lying smooth and calm, like a tired giant, flashing back the burning face of the sun now riding high in the heavens. By the way, this reminds that we mast tear onrselvee away from this enchanting spot, although we hear the lond whoo-e-e of another party in the valley below, who are on onr trail ?but noiYuntil .. ?h?h?a II such an unearthly jell that it caused an water to lose a bear he had eanght gclose by, as I afterwards learned, ssed this hunter's residence?on e very top of the mountain. High minded man !?more graud than com fortable, we thought. Soon we reached the grand center of attraction?the cave ; when, the roll being called, the following gentlemen responded: Job W. Parsons, (our noble young guide,) A. T, Bonni tield, Abraham Bonnineid, Rufus Max well, Edgar Parsons, Wm. Ewing, Jr.. Jeff. W. Corrick, Isaac Parsons, David Wheeler," Nicholas "K.

Some tried to crawl iu head foremost, I " wefi'i it btfhd.1' heels foremost, and the next motion my legs were dangling over a firectpioe ! By the assistance of those be 6w I. reached the bottom, pretty badly scared. Now, Mr. Editor, comes the "tug."?. We now stood in a room about 10 by SO feet, From which there ematoaled several channels, more or leta broad?especially lese. We selected the most promising one, and eet out. The- first motion we found ourselves like so many quadrnpeda minus the bristles, rooting our way one after the other, and a leetle down hill, tfcfe floor being well gravelled?much to onr comfort. (?) We bad made a pilgrim age of about thirty yards^ when Job anp nounced that he could stand up. Hera we came to a long straight hali, about 200 feet in length, and some 8 feet ,wide, where we found a great many stalactites, of efery shape and sise, some of which we brought away with us?one in partio ular, we hare laid away for you. We had not been here many minutes before the deafening cry, "bats I bats ! 1" rang through theiuall like young thunder, and which I did not fully oomprehond, till liff I one took me in the face like a "wet sock," scaring me out of a year's growth. Look ing around, there they were, atioking to the walls of the cave like so many little black imps. Some one touohed one of their impships with a oaudie, and mirai* He diclu ! what an odour 1 Which, to gether with rather a foul air in the oare, was strong enough to earry double. Towards the western end of thin hall, wo also found what we called the ", bot tomless pit," as we didn't find the bot tom. As we had no rope to let some oq* down, we had to let it paas so. There being a number of excellent voices in the party, we got together in the middle of the hall and sung several quartette, which was unequalled for the sweetness of the sounds, by any musio I ever heard. Again we made. ohoiee of one of the many ohannels leading out of- this room, and again we had to get down on our knees and hands, which comparatively easy position was soon exchanged for the more intflresting(?)one of being stretched out full length by the channel, " growing small by degrees and beautifully leas." If you could have only seen us, And beard the involuntary grunts and grumbling a* we nudged our way along, you wquld have laughed \f you were a preacher.?. But on we nudged inch by inch till we found another room. Here we confera we all fell a little peculiar?for on every side of us hung huge tocks that seemed ready at the slightest jar to tumble dowp upon us. We were as still as mioe, speaking only iu whispers. The roof at this place was some 30 feet high, from the center of it hung rocks weighing not leas than 20 tons, in one corner *e found a spring of ice-cold water, pure as orystal, with which we slaked our thirst. This room is 122 6 feet from the mouth, bearing Weat. W>e examined several other similar rooms in a similir way, when iu a similar manner, we commenced to re^nudge towards day light, which we reached about 6 o'oloek, P. M., much to our joy, 1 assure you, well convinced that there is a good deal of humbug ip that sort pf amusement.-? But there was no humbug iu our beiug the muddiest jooking specimens of hu manity you ever ?saw.

We were in the cave five mortal hours 1 We now made haste to be off, aome who had wives went all the way home, and some who had not didn't. Three young bachelors and myself made for Shaver's fork by the nearest route, where we found comfortable quarters for tb? night, diviog our number between two of the neighbors. We were so fortunate ae to find several young and handsome la dies' to our inexpressible joy?can't speak for the other loo yoaog men?didn't see them any mure till 1 reached home. The next morning we had the felicity of hay ing a female accompaniment for aome dis tance towards home ; and that source of pleaeure bad but just ceaaed, when our eyes, and then palates were greeted with the sight and taste of thesweeteat grapes, growing in rich clustera from the bead ing vines. But now we are "home again" and so ends the chapter. Uataa Hur.
