11W OuM.lANrIW d,'NUAY, BSPThMBRi :0, 1-17 MOlRE TllJV A MILE A MIN.UTE. TUB E]XCCIUSION TRAIN THAT LEFT A WIllliL WIND LN ITS WAKE. A Mile in Fifty-seven eooeads-Ons Hndred sad levoe Miles in One Hundred and Nine Mfantes. IDetrit Free Preu.i There was only one stop in the III miles that separates St. Thomas from Amberst burg oi the Canada Bouthern Railroad. The engineer, Macomber, was surrounded by an admiring throng, and passengers and railroaders commented on the handsome appearance o.f his iron steed, The steam guage just before starting showed a pres sure of eighty five pounds, a moderate figure for a locomotive. Conductor Craw ford sang out "All aboard !" and the special train with Bishop Borgess on board pulled out from Sc. Thomas at 5:27 P. 3t. A grand hurrah from the platform signalled the departure. Once the bridge was cleared, Macomber "let ier o utt.hlts --rges,-tn the palace car, after receiving the salutations of the gentlemen of the party, sat down, and dinner was served to him and his traveling companions upon a small table. No one noticed any particular motion in the car. There was no disarrangement in the dishes, crowded and small as was the table. The hum of the train was some what sharper than usual, and the rushing air against the windows sounded like the was no indication of unusunal speed to a person in the car. Presently watches were taken out and observations made. The reverend clergy as well as the more worldly laity, became interested. r "A mile in sixty seconds !" rJ aculated one Shortly after--"A mile in fifty-eight sec onds !" Again-"A mile in fifty-seven seconds!" a and the enthusiastic Frank Moran, with a c cheer that intensified the excitement, an- le nounced that his stop-watch marked fifty- p five seconds to the mile. w Before one could point out an object it at had vanished. Before a question could be te asked and ineweled a mile herd sped; five at miles were traversed in the interval while th cigars were handed around and lighted by 11 as many men. A flock of blackbirds flying m toward the west with all their fleetness in at cleaving the air were soon left behind and tr lost to view. he The wires on the telegraph poles swung co up and down from the movement of the ht train. The bushes on the side of the ditches wi shook as if swept by a hurricane, and the tic tall and gaudy yellow coxoombs that grew lFs beside the fences bent to the ground in a tic seemingly overpowering desire to get loose La from the earth and follow the rushing fol train. The dust from newly ballasted portions of the track and the chips and eve leaves rose up fiercely against the force of afr gravitation and whirled and gyrated about cal like vapory clouds in a tempest. A thin line of smoke stretched interminably in the an distance. The impetus of tke train in- shi creased; the vehemence with which it rushed forward created a vacuum that me apparently took nature some seconds to cal overcome, and the spirits of the passengers ore were exhilarated by the unprecedented Yo speed at which they moved through space. we A side-track passenger train saluted us bel with cheers and locomotive whistles. Nei- Ta ther was heard : before the sound could ten reach the ears of the passengers in the ape. cial it was be3o :d heiating. One could see the rushing ýtl,.ta and the waving hand- ras kerchiefs. Train I)epatcler Noble re- rt ported tbat -ix milts between l~lghwot-d and Ridgeton were made in tfie reuoutes; the fifty-seven suites between St. Thomas and Charing C':rss were made in tfity-etx di and a half alnutres. A ha:t at Charing t Cross for four minutes for water, and then on again with the same overpowering ve locity.

The icr colonists already have dairies and cheese ye factories in successful operation, and all ye their products fnlod ready sale and com dc mand fancy prices. They have splendid "1 herds of cattle, and their barns are built as pi carefully as their houses. There is also a pl colony of Swiss near Greenville, 8. C., hi about as large as the Tennessee colony, H and it is prospering finely. as The German colony established upon bl Sand Mlountain, in this State, three years e: ago, is even more flourishing than the Swiss e B colonies of Tennessee and South Carolina. ti Mr. Cullman, who planted the Sand Mouon- i tain colony, has succeeded in" building up I a settlement of six thiousand souls. Trhe a 8tate of Alabama, in just return for his a services, in making a garden of a wi:der- d ness, at tihe .tt st.-sion of the Legislature framed a new rcounty, of which a majority I of the inhabutu.tr winll be now settlers, and I gave it the n:,mc of Culman. Recently a s number of tw i-n trbei-rs of the Industrial V Convention nicl, iiit t Illount Sirings b accompanied Mr. Curirian otn a visit to !fr settlementr, and wre hrown thie produlcts a of the soil. Where, three years ago, there j was a barren' wilderness, there is now a p ,r. llourishbng town, paS ing toeasands of dol lara taxes to the State. The grape is being 17 cultivated extensively and profitably. Upon one half acre of vineyard, the owner, an intelligent and indnstrious German, had realized $200 from the sale of grapes. This vineyard was but two years old and plant ed from cuttings. lie expected to realize next year not less than $500. Mr. Cllaman exhibited to his visitors a well developed tobacco plant equal in quality and size to thcsw of Virginia. The colony cultivate tobacco and manufacture cigars. The t wine made from the grapes is sold without d. difficulty in tihe marketa of Louisville and id Cincinnati. While the soil upon which id this colony is located is about as pour as re any in Alabama, they appear contented m and prosperous, making money in direo f_ Lions new to our people, and giving life e and impetus to all the surrounding country. ,_ This has been the work of one man-a man It who does not appear to possess any remark d able powers of organization or leade;ship. d Behind him, however, was t.e countenance e and support of a wealthy and intelligent corporation-the Louisville and Nashville railroad, to whose interest it is to have Salong the line of tie South and North roail. What has been done at Cullman may be done hero in Mobile cur.uty, alorg the MIbile and Ohio railroad and the Mobile and New Orleans Railroad, if only a man of energy and determination will take hold of the matter. Our lands are far more productive than those of Sand Mountain, and equally as healthy. Between Mobile and the Mississippi line there are large tracts of countr sitable for the culture of fruits, the grasses, cane and cotton, wit an almost limitless range for sheep and cattle. THE MOST CA CTIOUS OF LOeVERS. LETTERS ON WHICII A BREACH OF PROMISE 8LIT COULD HARDLY iE BASED. People may talk as much as they nlease about the exquisite diplomatic skill of Gorts chakoff or Eismarck in a long correspond- t ence, but there has recently been a corres- a pondence going on between a young lady n who lives in a fashionable neighborhood w and a clerk in a big dry goods store down y town, which, for tact and fertility of re 0 source, would extort, were it folly known, oi the admiration of all Europe and America. gi lie has bees paying the young lady very ai marked attention for the last ten months, of and, as she would like to take a wedding of trip to the East this summer, or else enter B her suit for breach of promise before the courts take their vacation, she wants to th hurry up things. Accordingly she began th writing letters to him, aided by her affec- fr. tionate brother, who is studying for the law; and he, being of a suspiciona disposi tion, is giving her most guarded replies. Last Saturday week she wrote to him as la' follows : y Dearest Heward--Mamma will not lie in this evening. I shall be at home after 7j. and am go afraid I shall be terribly lonesome if no one fn calls.. Ever yours, Ada, th When the young man got this he winked at and said to himself laconically, "Not much I m she doesn't," and wrote back :I Dear Miss Ada-I regret that your respected in mother will be absent, as I had intended to nall this eeening to see if her health had im oroved. Your note, however, reassures me. an You speak of being lonesome. Ab, I know too cit well the feeling; but in the company of our di beloved authors, Milton, Shakespeare, Jeremy ga Taylor, Watts, and all those immortal friends etc who are never from home and never out o sate temper, bow can we be lonesome t lac When the yoltg woman read this as far be as "company of our beloved," she felt of rather tiuumiphant, but at the n-xt word br she bowed tiher beautitul head on her hands )4 and burst into tear", savlng, "He's just as to mean as old get out." Her brot!.er Alger- jet con read it reflectively, and said, "He St demuos: we mue: join action atd plead to Sc t.e jur.adiction. Triis is a deep serpent, td cis ; he doesn' serjr his sting upon his tt set-re : bat I'll fetch him." Then sie af dried her tears and wrote: lii It was conki d of t (n .ot to come last right, s bi: lerdinand was ICee asd -tayed till nearly of 11 He is soca a dariog tel;ow ; I just dote ch upon him. But dn't be jealon.s. The Sabbath tb be.. are r: g ag sweetly. Do son not love be tt:e mellow moec of the bells ? At night 1 fo often in my dreams seem to bear the cbimngg of a bail-you mast know which one. "There," aa:d the brother, '-I gues at we're got him. II he answers that to a T fe:ter two lines loor.Wir:b Dexter couldn't i save Lim from $10 iJ damagee." The 1 clerk read :t. sat down thoungLtruly, ard replied : cc 'DaDi't be jes!oa" Wy should I: True to fr:ezdstip is bere selfish; and under all c.r cuse-accs. n r. atter hour far apart we may be.

I ktuw it, f.r I often used ft to hbe.r i; when I 1. arded oier on Warren L ie:t- C. T Tti- young man did nit conclude this letter without some misgivings. "because," b said lie to himself, as tie read the rough , draft, "it looks a little bit forced-too plain a to be artistic. It miight he construed that , I was trying to beg ct-. Then, too, I don't ti quite like the beginning. 'Why should I 7' seems as if I was so confident of her love that I couldn't be jealoeus. Well, I'll chance it." So he sent the letter, and when she p received it the girl had a fit of dry hyster. - ice, and said, "Algernon. you most redress w your sister's wrongs. You must imbrue your hands-." Then she wept again. "I don't know," said her brother, doubtfully, "be's bigger'o I am, and tossing about C pieces of calico and boxes of thread and playing on the counter with a set of parallel bara is powerful in developing the muscle. D He's a brazen, fiery serpent, and I always said be was, but if you will go on nursing brazen serpents in your bosom yon must expecd them to turn again and rend you. He must have a connsel learbed in the law to advisa him; besides, he has taken an impression of his letter in a copying press. He is a three-ply traitor. P'erhlas, though, i we can scoop huin yet," and so they tried, and, after a session of three hours, pro- I duced the following ultimatum: Hlow fuonoy -our last letter was! Congrati lating me on my engagement to Ferdinand! lie idea Who better than yourself known where mny affections are unalterably placed? Won't you come np ton ght ? Pa and me will be at home, and the will be glad to see you. "l'Tihat's pretty good, I guess," she said, "and italicizing that 'they' will make the jury think thatll our allusions to the oldI people were put in to be interpreted the 1. other way. I gueos, young man, that'll ig make you sick." It did, too, for a while, in for when the young man got the letter be tn read it over backward and forward, and A whistled saft, copious selections from thirty is tve standard operas before he saw his way t- clear to an answer. "Yes," he said bitterly, :e "her pa and ma will be at home, but the an old nqan'll go up stairs to bed at a quarter d to 8, and the old woman'll go out and tell o the servant about putting the dry codfish e to soak, and forget to come back-oh. I e know the old frauds like a book. Bually, it I'll take a witness with me! That's it !" d So be sat down and wrote: b Thank your parents for promising to be tt A home, and tell your respected mother that I d shall expect her to teachb me whist. And so i. Ferdinand isn't the happy man; who ist I 'e was just beginning to think that we might, when we knew each other better, come to be a hopeless adorer of yours, buht it seems I am to have no chance. You can't have told me whom the groom expectant is to be, or 1 should surely Shave remembered. The poor girl did not find much censola titru in this, but as she had her parents we l drilltd in their parts, she, liooked for Sward iioptfall to the night, bting pretty sure toat shet could keephim there pretty late, umake the weakess of her eyes an excuse for turniing down the g~s, rthen," said she, "my worno'l he as good as his be forejurymen with niArrisgeable dsughters." When the hell rang at 7.35 she etarted up with a beating heart; and when he entered with a companion and said, "I have made bold to bring moy triend, Mr. St - ," she ecreamed wildly, "'Lost ! lost !"' and tell fainting to the tloor. That is how the ounu man thinks he turned her position very neatly in his last letter, and placed it on record that up to that time he hadn't been paying any attentions to her. As for toe future, that must look out for itself. AN APPEAL TO THE CHARITAIfLE. (~t. Louis Watchaman.) We take great pleasure in recommending to the generous public of St. Lonis the two sisters who are now collecting for the Do minican Convent of New Orlecns. T)hat worthy order have met within the last two years severe reverses of fortune, which now compel them to appeal to the charity of strangers for means to carry on their good work. They come with a very warm endorsement from the venerable Archbishop of New Orleans,e Monseigneur Perche, and offer also tie following permission from Bishop Ryan: Mother Magdalen and Sister Teresa have the necessary permission to collect alms for W their institution in this diocese for one month from this date. LSignedl P. J. RvY, Coadj.-Bishop. Or Bt. Leis, Airu. 31. The South has been so unfortunate of late years that the case will meet with the sympathy of all charitable persona in St. Louis, who would like to contribtse to a good causne. The two Sisters will be thaek fol for any donation left at the Convent of the Good Shepberd, corner of Seventeenth c and Pine streets. These donations will Bt meet with their prayers for the donors, and DI mase will be said once a month for the same B intention. Dr DIscOVERY or GAs.-Great was the L amsz-ment of all England wheo, at the Br close of the last century, Wm. Murdoeh JB discovered the use of combustible air or vc as. So little was the invention under- IB stood and believed in by those who had seen it in use that even great and wise men A iauzhed at the idea. " How could there be light withoat a wick 7" asked a member rf Parliament when the subjest was brought bcftre the House. Even Sir Hum- G, Npirey Davy ridiculed the idea of lighting towns wi'h g, and asked or,e of the pro jeetois if they meant to take the deme of St. Paula as a gas metre. Sir Walter * Scott, too, mdela liimself merry over the rda of illamiuatirg" Lardon by smoke, though he was glad eLuogh not so long after to make his own house at Abbotsford J light and cheerful on winter nights by the use of that very smoke. When the House of Commons was lighted by gas, the ar chPect imagined that the gas ran on tire y through the pipes, and inststed on their being placed several inches from the wall for fear of the building taking fie, and members mighit be observed carefully touching the pipe with their gloved hands, and wondering that they did not feel warm. A The first shop lighted by the new method was Mr. Ackermann's of the Strand, in 1l10, and one lady of rank was so delighted with the brilliancy of the gas lamp on the counter that she asked to be allowed to take it home in' her carriage.

The date could not be deciphered, as some g nails had been driven in the space occupied by the figures. The remains are stated to be those of Don Luis Colon (or Colombo), son of Don Diego, who, as may be remem bered, was the son of the navigator Chris topher Columbus. He that sympathizes in all the happiness of othere, perbhaps himself enjoys the safest hap pinees; and he that is warned by all the folly of others has perhaps attained the soundest wisdom.
