Founding its statements on the details eon eerning Signor Salvini's domestio life which recently appeared in oar columns from a cor respondent at Florence, Hunch of Janaary 29th publishes the following record: "Mr. Phelps, the veteran exponent of so many grand Shakespearian characters, it is not generally known, has apartments at the top of Lambeth Shot Tower. He lives here in comparative loneliness with fifteen grand children, to whom he gives lessons in elocu tion daring six hoars of the day. In his or dinary conversation his utterance is very rapid, and delivered in a shrill counter-tenor, which has a peculiar effect on those who hear him in private for the first time. It has been kept secret for a loDg time, but we be lieve we are not indiscreet in making it pub lic, that this tragedian likes nothing so well as athletic sports; and indeed, when not otherwise engaged at Christmas time, he ap pears as the Boneless Wonder at a popular circus. He has two performing poodles which he is going to introduce very soon to a London audience, and which it-is expected will be the rage next season. Mr. Charles Mathews, the genial light comedian of this and last century, is popuiur ly supposed to be in Calcutta. It really is his grandson who is now performing in India, but the resemblance is so striking as to do oeive his most intimate admirers. Mr. Ma thews himself is now at Twickenham, where he may be seen any morning sculling between Maidenhead and Oxford. His constitutional " pipe-opener " over, be retires to his study, where he is correcting proofs of an annotated edition of Plato's " Dialogues, " with au inter linear translation into Sanskrit. At the same time, his love for the foot-lights will not allow him to remain at nights away from the stage. Every Monday, Wednesday and Friday he takes Mr. George Conquest's place in the Crab at the Grecian Theater. Mr. Sothern, the inextinguishable Lord Dandreary, has home tastes far different from those he is usually credited with. He holds a spelling-bee every morning in bis quiet lit tle home in Thistle Grove, which the mem bers of the press are earnestly entreated to join. After lunch, which consists usually of a cold crumpet and a glass of liquid magne sia, he repairs to the Young Man's Improve ment Society Rooms, in Bloane street, and gives a lecture, which he often prefaces with an extract from one of Blair's sermons. The series of lectures now being delivered is on the "Frivolty of Giving Way to Laughter." Mr. Sothern rises at 5 every morning, and cooks his own simple meal of oat meal por ridge and plovers' eggs. Mr. Toole, whose very name convulses a London audience, in the privacy of his every day life is of very ascetic habits. He retires to bed as soon as be leaves the Gaiety, (a name he would willingly change if he could,) in order that he may rise with the lark to pur sue his favorite occupation of fetching water cress from the suburban streams to fill the baskets of s grateful tribe of costermongers. In the afternoon he presides at the Cabmen's Mataal Aid Society under the name of Mr. Lawrence, and is remarkable for his reserved and austere manner. It is an extraordinary fact that Mr» Toole is widely known under another name as a great artist, being probably the only representative of the classical painters left in Eugland. Up to the present time his canvases bave been of a size to keep them out of the Royal Aoade my. He is now engaged on a picture 32 feet by 18; subject, " The finding what is left of die body of Harold," which will, doubtless, be the hit of the next exhibition in Burling ton House. On Sundays Mr. 'Toole is s constant attend ant at the Tabernacle, and allows himself one glass of ipecacuanha wine at dinner. 14 THE ROTOM AU AUA GEYSER IN NEW ZEALAND. [San Francisco Call.] The hills around the geyser teem with hot springs and hot mud in a liquid state, and constantly bubbling up and emitting a hor rible sulphuric smell which is almost stifling. The great geyser itself is up in the top of a lofty hill whioh appears to have been the sister of s volcano, now filled with light blue boiling water of an unknown depth. The water is forever seething and boiling, as if all the fires of perdition were aflame beneath it. It Is constantly shooting up in columns from six to thirty feet in height, whioh sometimes look very beantifnl when the sun converts the tailing globules into showers of pearls and silver. The great geyser is approached from below by a series of orescent-shaped terraces, bowed outward, a few feet in height each, and per haps one hundred yards in width, all over flowing till yon oome to the two principal ter moss, the top one of which is always boiling over into those beneath it. The steam is almost blinding and suffocating when the wind is blowing toward yon. In many of the pools there ere pleasant bathing plaoes. The water is hot on the surfaoe but oool beneath, the boiling water from the great geyser above not seeming to penetrate tar below the surface of the more distant terraces, which it over flows. There are two sets of terraoes, the first of which arc called the white terraces. The rim around the boiling cauldron is formed of a white substance, like the most delioate filigree work, resembling lace, suoh is its regularity and beauty. This white rim whioh projects some distance over the boiling fountain, shows to all the greater advantage because of the intense blue of the waters. These beautiful terrace-brims are formed by deposits of sulphur and silioa from the boil ing springs from the top of the hill, which pour down the sides and crush the tea scrub und other trees growing there, and torn the incrustation*. For, s'.range as it may seem, there is green gross and shrubbery to the very verge of the boiling fountains. Many of the bums appear to be made of petrified tea shrub or ferns. These brim-formations are very rough and sharp-edged, and very hard on boots or bare feet, though the Maorias, whose feet are hardened, trip over them with out any serious inconvenience. The water in all the terraces is beautifully clear and bine. From the white terraces one enters a canoe *nd paddles over to the pink terraces, a short distance from the former. Their formation is the same as the first, but they are smaller, •nd instead of the pure white brim they have a pink-tinted border, whioh is exquisitely beautiful, and it is questionable whether they are not the prettier of the two. The Committee ou Street Lights, of Lynn, Maes., bas voted to substitute kerosene lor gas in lighting the streets. It is claimed that • saving of $2000 or more will be effected by the change. __ A lot of 18 pounds of Pea vine ore from the Golden Fleece mine, Nevada, which has hith erto resisted all attempts at rednotion, has been submitted to the Frier process, which reduced it as easily as the Go'mstock ores, giving 152 25 in silver and $2 18 in gold to the ton. _____ Ur. Liaderman, Director of the Mint, has expressed the opiniOD, before the Committee on Coinage in the United States House of Bepresentatives, that inasmuch as the mint at ; Hew Orleans was in condition for assaying and stamping bnUion, and the bullion trade of that city with Mexico had been largely re established daring the last twelve months, authority should be given to eondnet that es tablishment as an assay office. f Buy your buggy and carriage of L.
