No other business appearing, the meeting adjourned. re R. A. Cooi*KK, Clim'ii. M. A. Stewart, Secy. Smelling: An Kartfiiiuukc. "We was anchored in the harbor of Manilla, said a bronzed and weather beaten sailor, as lie stretched his legs under the tabic and looked meditative ly at a glass of beer which had just been placed before him. "It were in the ship Alert, as I shipped into fur the vovage, and our ole! Cole. see at scentin' a blow, that nose of 1 1 is was man s name was The old mau was the best I ever \V y, bless ye, better than any barometer that ever was made. Many a time I've seen him a walking up and down the poop with the skv as blue and wind as fair ]y he'd stop, cock up his nose, and a sort of snuff like. Then he'd my tiling. Snddeu give snuff nil 'round the compass and sing out for to shorten sail and gel ready for a blow. And the blow came, too. The old man used to sav lie sometimes lied, but lie never made a mistake. "Well, as I was a say ing, we was an chored in tlic harbor of Manilla. It was the most ieautifu. day you ever see. Not enough wind to ripple the water, and not a cloud in the sky. The old man was ashore. Bimebv he comes aboard. As ne stepped over the side lie stopped and gate ;i great snuff. Then he snuffed harder and harder all Then he looked round the eompa scared like and rus oil below to look at his barometer. He brought the barometer up on deck and placed it where he could keep his eye on it, and began to get the ship ready for a ty phoon, for that was what lie thought was a coinin'. The barometer didn't go down a bit, but that didn't fool the old man. lie sent down the sky-sail and royal-yards fient on purvénter backstays, put double gaskets on all the sails 'eepting the fore and main tawps'ls, and did every thing he could think of to get the ship in condition for a typhoon. We overhauled the sheets, halyards, buntlins, clcwlins, and braces' of the fore and main tawps'ls, and fixed the gaskets so as could get lim oft in about two shakes of a lamb's tail, fur you see we wauted to be aille to get on to her quick to keep her offshore if so be as she should drag her anchors. IV c put out both anchors and all the chain wo had, and it was a powerful lot 1 can tell vou. ••Well, that night there want any si <v n of a blow—just as calm aud pleas ant as it had been, aud there was the old man a-walkin' up aud down tho deck party much all night a-lookin' at that barometer, which never moved an inch. The next morning the barometer did go down a little, and the old man looked actu'lay pleased, fur you see he'd rather be in tiie biggest blow that ever, was than be caught at a mistake in smellin' bad weather. Well, about that day, while we were all at dinner, there come a dull, rumblin' und, and the ship began to tremble all over like as if she had struck a rock. Then she began to go up, up, and wq. lushed out of the foes'tie to see a groat tidal wave sweeping into the harbor and on shore the dust and bricks and trees was a-ilyin' round in great shape. We was all 'pretty weil scared, but fortunately we bad out so much chain that wc rode fhe wave in safety. In the midst of the confusion 1 saw the old man clin^.ng for dear life to the liferail and heard him shout: *A earth quake, by thunder; 1 thought twas a At ft; York Tribune. we noon so typhoon.'

OS THE CH ANT'S CAUSEWAY. A Sciontlllc l>i'M|uisitiou mu] Lp^rnil. Irish an The giant's causeway is the northern extremity of ihe situated at county of Antrim, and a short distance frmu Port Hush and the ruins of Dunluce castle. it consists of countless hosts of basaltic pillars, varying in shape from a pentagon to an octagon, length from ton to eighty feet, the whole stacked so closely together that it would be difficulty to insert a knife blade between them. The formation of these pillars is not the least wonder ful part about them, for, although they may be counted by tens of thousands, each pillar is fashioned with a symme try that suggests a mason's handiwork. Their composition is a perfect fusion of one-half flinty earth, one-quarter iron, and. one-quarter lime and clay, each pillar being divided into lengths of several feet, which join in a natural ball-and-socket joint. Although to be found in small de tachments (embedded in the cliffs and otherwise) for some distance along the shore, the principal combinations which form the causeway co nsists of three tongues known respectively as the little, the middle, and the grand cause ways, which preserve an unbroken chain, commencing at the base of the clilfs and extending out to sea. It is the heads of these columns which con and in stitute the causeway, and upon which the visitor is invited to walk. Of dif ferent lengths, they present a singular appearance to the eye, and when ren dered slippery by the sea are liable to prove treacherous to the feet, and thus they stand, an army of 40,000 strong, marshaled on the shores of Erin to do battle with the rising tide. We entered by the causeway gate, a passage upon either side of which the basaltic pillars first break upon tiic view. Here it was that our guide as sumed the position of a scientific lectur er, and told us that probably in ages far remote there were volcanic erup tions in this part of the country, and that the molten lava rolling down the mountains fused with the matter with which it came in contact, and cooled in the remarkable shape it now displays. Here, too, he told us of a more truly Irish origin, of the days of the gallant Fin McCoul and the giant of "bonny Scotland," and of how, in order that they might cross the sea to settle a friendly quarrel, they collected the bowlders upon which we are walking, and fashioned the giant's causeway. As with magic wand our guide gave to almost every craig and peak we fantastic and descriptive name, and in this way we met in the course of our ramble with "the four sisters," "the giant's head," "the nursing child, "the giant's pulpit," "the lien and chickens," "tiie priest and his flock, and many other weird, mysterious com binations. A few steps brought us to the giant's well, a spring of fresh water that bub bles up at a spot which at high water is covered by the sea. It was in vain we told the pleasant-looking woman that attended it that we were not thirsty, and that we were already mar ried, and therefore did not want to be married before the end of tiie year (a blessing confidentially promised to everyone who drinks of the water of this well). "Arrah ye must be afther taking a dhrap for the luck of the ould counthry," was the immediate re sponse; and so we pledged Hibernia in a clour draught from her crystal spring. We wore next introduced to "Lord An trim's parlor," in which the stony guests received us but with cold indif ference, and, as Lord Antrim himself was evidently absent, we passed on to inspect the giant's organ. This huge instrument consists of a number of pillars, of various lengths, set apart on the side of the dill, the larger ones being in the center, and the smaller ones tapering oil'on either side, after the fashion of organ pipes, and when viewed from a distance admirably sus taining tiie idea the name conveys. But our visit is not that of a tourist whose desire is to kill time, or we might linger for hours ou the scenes we hurry by. Having ascended the shep herd's path, and viewed the "giant's chimney tops," we were piloted to the "giant's amphitheater." This is said to be the grandest amphitheater in the world; it is of gigantic proportions, and exhibits a perfection of symmetry which is at once awful and unique. Near the summit is an immense row of pillars, which are said to be eighty feet in height, at the base of which is a broad projection, and then another row of pillars, of sixty feet in height—again a platform upon which a Demosthenes might have longed to stand and shout his orations to the sea—again a descent, and then the huge bowlders that line the arena conclude Ihe imposing spec tacle. Such a scene as this is beyond all description, and must be felt as well as seen to be appreciated. Fain would we have lingered here in silent thought, but time would not permit, and so, having spent an hour amongst these wonderful scenes, we turned into the fields, to seek by another route the Causeway hotel. — Lett's Illustrated Household Magazine. saw a M el ' ?
