The Lake of Fire.
The following description of a lake of fire,
in the crater of a volcano of the Sandwich
Islands will be read with interest:
“Bat the whole has not yet l>een seen.—
Not having been able to reach the lake from
l>elow we resolved to approach and look
upon it from above. In the face of a cold,
driving rain storm, Mr. Hussey, (my very
agreeable traveling companion,) the guide
and myself set out on foot for a walk of five
miles to a distant polut. The whole body
of the crater was full of steam and smoke,
and doubts were expressed w hether we could
get a view of the bottom : but on we went
trusting for better things, in which we were
not disappointed.
“Before reaching the bank while it was
hid from view, we could distinctly hear the
round of its sparkling waves, so like, and
yet so unlike the breaking of the surf upon
the ocean's shore. There was the mingling
of the sound of rushing w aters with its own
dead, heavy, hissing tone. A moment more
and we stood upon the brow of the perpen
dicular wall of a thousand feet, and directly
above the lake, and there we sat ourselves
silently upon the rocks to look down upon
it. It differed from all we bad seen before.
The lurid light of the previous night was
gone, and beautiful pictures which helped
to make up that scene were absent but in
stead were others more appalling and full
of terror. Ilero in close proximity and
plain sight was ‘a lake burning with tire,
may be unquenchable, and it only required
the wails of the tormented to complete the
dread description of hell.
The lake was some half a mile in diame
ter, and one-and-a-half in circumference,
nearly round ; its surface was raging with
great violence, and was, when unbroken
black and dark, but when agitated violently,
as the center was continually, its color was ;
blood red. Every few momeuts the lava
would be thrown up at least fifty feet in jets,
cud then, as it, lashed into fury, great waves
would chase each other, boiling and foam
ing red with heat, if not in anger. Strange
sounds saluted the ear, as well as strange
sights to the eye. Occasionally loud reports
were heard ; then the peculiar sound of
escaping steam, as if a thousand boilers
were blowing off' their pent up steam at once,
and the dead, heavy sound of the disturbed
lava was continuous. Take it altogether it
was decidedly the most startling scene I
had ever witnessed
Just beyond the burning lake was the
great coue, now black as night, from which
the intensely brilliant light had shone the
night before. Fit chimney, indeed, for the
fire beneath. Its proportions were gigantic,
its capacity immense, and it was belching
forth at intervals vast volumes of smoke and
steam, made up a grand but awful picture,
impossible to describe but never to be for
On our return from the view of the lake
• we passed the sulphur banks. They arc lo
cated about a quarter of a mile from the
upper bank of the crater, on a slightly de
pressed plain or valley. They are less than
half a mile in length and are full of holes,
through which beautiful crystals of sulphur
are hanging. In securing some specimens I
burnt my fingers in the steam. The natives
call this bank of sulphur Tele’s Dunghill.
All along the banks, and in some places
half a mile distant from the crater, are holes
and fissures in the rocks, from which steam
is constantly issuing burning hot. The
ground near the crater is strewn all over
with Tele’s hap—a tine thread of glass or
melted sand thrown up from the volcano
and blown into minute attenuated threads
by the wind. They are in color brown and
much resemble “auburn” hair ; and hence
the name. They cover the ground like cob
webs but are very brittle and it requires
care to gather them up.
The Midnight Assassin.
I was on my way to P , in tiie year
18—; it was towards the cold evenings in
the first fall month, when my horse stopped
suddenly before a respectable house, about
forty miles from N .
There was something strange and remark-'
able in this action of my horse, nor would
be stir a step iu spite of all my exertions to
move him on.
I de'ermined to gratify this whim, and at
the same time a strange presentment which
came over me, a kind of supernatural feeling,
indescribable, seemed to urge me to enter.
Having knocked, and requested to be con
ducted to the lady or gentleman of the house,
I was ushered into a neat sitting room,
where sat a beautiful girl of about twenty
years of age. She rose at my entrance and
seemed a little surprised at the appearance
of a perfect stranger.
Iu a few words I related to her the
strange conduct of my horse, and his stub
born opposition to my mind. ‘I am not,’ I
observed, ‘superstitious, nor inclined on the
side of the metaphysical doctrines of those
who support them ; but the strange, unac
countable feeling that crept over me in at
tempting to pass your house induced me to
solicit lodgings for the night”
“We are not,’, she replied, “well guarded
’tis true ; but in this part of the country we
have little to fear from robbers, for we have
never heard of any being near us ; w r e are
surrounded by good neighbors, and I flatter
iuyself we are at peace with them. Hut
this evening, in consequence of my father’s
absence, I felt unusually lonesome, and if it
was not bordering on the superstitious, I
might reason as you have, and say I consent
to your staying ; for similar feelings had
been mine ere you arrived ; from what cause
1 cannot imagine.”
The evening passed delightfully away
My young hostess was intelligent and love
ly ; the hours flew so quickly that on look
ing ut my watch I was surprised to find that
it was eleven o’clock. This was the signal
for retiring, and by twelve every inmate of
the house was probably asleep, save myself.
I could not sleep—strange visions flitted
across my brain, and I lay twistiiig on my
bed iu all the agony of sleepless suspense.
The clock struck one—its last vibrating
sound had scarcely died away, when the
opening of a shutter and the raising of a
sash in one of the lower apartments con
vinced me some one wus entering the house.
A noise followed us of a person jumping
from the window sill to the floor, and then
followed a light and almost noiseless step,
of one ascending the stairway.
] slept in the room adjoining the one oc
cupied by the lady ; mine was next to the
staircase ; the step came along the gallcrv,
slow and cautious. 1 had seized mv pistol
aud slipped on part of my clothes, deter
mined to watch or listen to the movements
seemingly mysterious or suspicious; the
sound of steps stopped at my door—then
followed one as if applying the car to the
keyhole, and a low breathing convinced me
the villain was listening. I stood motion
less, the pistol firmly grasped. Not a mus
cle moved, nor a nerve was slackened, for 1
felt as if Heaven had selected me out as the
instrument to effect its purpose.
The person now slowly passed on, and I
as cautiously approached the door of my
1 now went by instinct, or rather by the
conveyance of sound, for as soon as I heard
his hand grasp the latch of one door mine
seized the other—a deep silence followed
this movement ; it seemed as if he had
heard the sound aud waited the repetition ;
it came not, all was still; he might have
considered it the echo of his own noise. I
beared the door open softly—I also opened
mine, and the very moment I stepped into
the entry I caught a glimpse of a tall man
entering the lighted chamber through the
half-opened door, I glanced my eyes into the
room. No object was visible save the cur
tained bed, within whose sheets lay the in
tended victim to a midnight assassin, and
he, gracious Heaven, a negro !
For at that moment a tall fierce looking
black approached the bed ; and never were
Othello and Desdemona more naturally rep
resented, at least that particular scene of
the immortal bard’s conception.
I was was all suspense ; my heart swelled
into my throat almost to suffocation, my
eyes to cracking, I made a bound into the
The black villain had ruthlessly dragged
part of the covering off the bed, when the
sound of my foot caused him to turn. He
started, and thus confronted, we stood gazing
on each other a few seconds ; his eyes shot
lire—fury was depicted in his countenance,
lie made aspring towards me, and the next
moment lay a corpse on the floor.
The noise of the pistol aroused the fair
sleeper ; she started in the bed, and seemed
an angel of the white clouds emerging from
her downy bed to soar up to the skies.
The first thing that presented itself to her
view was myself standing near her, with a
pistol in my hand.
“Oh, do not murder me !—take all—you
cannot, you will not kill me, sir ?”
The servants now rushed in—all was ex
The wretch tfirned out to be a vagabond,
supposed to be a runaway slave from Vir
ginia. 1 had the providential opportunity
of rescuing one from the worst of fates, who
iu after years, called me husband, and re

from the bold attack of a midnight assassin.
Complaining Husbands.
A writer in that antiquated, mummy peri
odical called “Blackwood’s Magazine,” as
serts that “complaining wives are more nu
merous than complaining husbands.” The
author of such a sentiment must he unfortu
nate in his connexions and intercourse with
the gentler sex. Either he is unmarried or
his wife is not a good specimen of woman
kind ; probably his mother died when he
was in his cradle and left behind her no
daughters to teach her son a better faith by
the blessing of their presence and cheerful
society. Let us charitably suppose that the
defective education of the writer, his narrow
sphere of observation and his ignorance of
the character and deportment of his coun
trywomen form some apology for his libel
on the married women of Great Britain.
It is strange that a magazine like Black
wood’s which has still a large circulation
and was formerly respectable and influential,
! should circulate such a statement, and thus
endorse the opinion that men are more pa
tient, better tempered, more easily satisfied
and happier than women. No American
periodical, that we are aware of, would dare
to maintain such an opinion in regard to
the women of the United States. Ameri
cans respect and love their wives, their
mothers and their sisters so much that they
gladly acknowledge their superiority to
themselves in patience, in endurance of suf
fering, in resignation, and in cheerfulness, —
the virtues which form the peculiar orna
ment and chief glory of the weaker sex.
The French and English travelers who
have lately been among us bear witness to
the fact that women are more highly hon
ored in this country than in any other, and
thus indirectly acknowledge that the United
States goes foremost in the march of civili
zation. A Cannibal Fcejee who buys a
woman for some worthless trinket, treats
her as a beast, and may use her in any wuy
he pleases ; he may udopt any means to get
out of her the full value of all he gave for
her, and he may even kill and eat her. A
half-civilized Russian occasionally beats his
wife ; his arguments with her are blows ;
the strongest proof of his affection towards
her is a liberal use of a stick or whip, audit
is even said tliut some Russian wives begin
to doubt their husband’s love for them, if
he omits for a few days to administer tiieir
customary and desired flagellation. An
Englishman growls when his wife complains;
if he belongs to the lower classes, like a Rus
sian, he beats her ; if he is educated and
almost civilized, he contents himself with
rushing into the street or sometimes into
print, and denouncing, complaining, scolding
women as the pests of society. A better
feeling in society towards females, a higher
state of civilization in the United States ex
cludes from American literature all such
wholesale, unsparing assaults on the better
half of the community, l’ublic opinion in
this country goes against such attacks on
the nature and rights of women, for every
true American believes that his female
friends and acquaintances, his mother, his
sister, and his wife are less disposed by na
ture and less accustomed to complain, to
whine and scold than his male associates
and relatives.
Ihe conduct of a few peevish, quarrelsome,
railing women should never be regarded as
a blot on the fair character of the entire
sex. Those who have taken complaining
women as their helpmates ought to be silent
, regarding their temper and habits ; they
' displayed a week judgment and a bad taste
, it their choice of a partner. They are, cer
tainlv, unfortunate, very unfortunate, and
of all men the most miserable, —very unfor
tunate in discovering ono bud among so
many good, and most miserable in having
bound themselves to suffer day after day
and hour after hour during the whole jour
ney of life the lash and spur of a woman’s
tongue. Still they should not complain.—
The silly ass that permits any fool to mount
his back cannot expect good treatment.—
We think lie has no right to disgust the
public by throwing up his heels and braying
every time his rider is pleased to touch him
with a whip or spur.—iV. Y. Ledger.

“Business To-Morrow.” —The following
extract we take from an old paper and it
contains many truths that would be profita
ble were they adhered to. There is nothing
like performing your business, of whatever
nature it may be’ at the present time, and
not wait until to-morrow, for that to-mor
row may never come to you :
"Said the Theban governor, as he smiling
ly laid by unopened, the letter that would
have informed him of a conspiracy against
his life, ‘Business to-morrow’ —the answer
was his death warrant, and he sealed it with
a smile. That night he was assassinated.
Whoever has read his history and investi
gated the causes of great events, cannot
have failed to note how often the scale of
success has been turned solely by the weight
of time ; and yet, as if in defiance of reason
and experience, how many are in the daily
habit of putting off business till to-morrow
which should be done to-day ; and this, too,
rather from habit than indolence. There is
no subject upon which there has bceu more
maxims established than this ; no theme
more fruitful to the preacher than the value
of time ; still the waste of it is the source
of failures; poverty, and even death. Now,
the business is put off till to morrow, and
then the succor comes to late. There is not
a more universal error than procrastination;
none as iusiduous, and none productive of
more misery. None so iusiduous —for we
often hear men descanting upon the folly of
waisting time, who are in the daily practice
of deferring what could and should be done
at once. Strange fatality ! that blinds, to
ruin us. This foible is common to all classes
of society. The merchant puts off the insu
rance of his ship which was wrecked yester
day till to-morrow ; the farmer puts oil his
harvest till to-morrow, and then finds that
last night the frost destroyed his crop—the
carpenter defers building till another day,
until death approaches him with
"Your house is finished, sir. at last,
A narrow house—a liou.-e ol clay,
You palace for another day.’ ”
What a Newspaper does for Nothing.—
The following article should he read by and
pondered well by every man who takes a
newspaper without paying for it in advance:
"The result of my observations enables
me to state as a fact, that publishers of news
papers are more poorly rewarded than any
other class of men in the United States,
who invest an equal amount of capital, la
bor and thought. They are expected to do
more service for less pay, to stand sponging
and “dead heading to puff’ and defend
more people without the hope of reward,
than any other class.
"They credit wider and longer, get oftener
cheated, suffer more pecuniary loss, are of
tener the victims of misplaced confidence,
than any other calling in the community.—
People pay a printer’s bill more reluctantly
than any other. It goes harder to spend a
dollar for a valuable newspaper than ten on
a needless gewgaw, yet everybody avails
himself of the use of an editor’s pen, and
printer’s ink. llow many professional and
political men have been made and sustained
by the friendly though unrequited aid of the
editor ? How many embryo towns and
cities have been brought into notice and
jmfl'cd into prosperity by the press. How
many railroads now in successful operation
would have foundered but for the assistance
of the “lever that moves the world ;” in
short, what branch of American activity,
has been prompted and stimulated and de
fended by the press ? And who has tend
ered it more than a miserable pittance for
its mighty service ? The bazars of fashion
and the haunts of vice and dissipation are
thronged with an eager crow d, and the com
modities there vended, are sold at an enor
mous profit, though intrinsically worthless,
and paid for with scupulous punctuality,
while the counting room of the newspaper
is the 6eat of jewing, cheapening, trade
orders and pennies. It is made a point of
honor to lidiquate a grog bill, but not of
dishonor to repudiate a printer’s bill.”
Female Heroism. —"One day,” said Mas
sena, "being at Buenghcn, I perceived a
young soldier belonging to the Light Artil
lery, whose horse had just been w ounded by
a lance. The young man who appeared
quite a child, defended himself desperately,
as several bodies of the enemy lying around
him could testify. I immediately dispatched
an officer with some men to his assistance,
but they arrived too late. Although this
action had taken place on the borders of
the wood, and in front of the bridge, this
artilleryman alone withstood the attack of
the small party of Cossacks and Bavarians,
whom the officer and men I hud dispatched
put to flight. His body was covered with
wounds indicted by shots, lances and swords.
There was at least thirty. And do you
know madame, w hat the young man was ?”
said Massena turning to me.
“A woman.”
“Yes, a woman, and a handsome woman,
too ! although she was so covered with
blood that it was difficult to judge of her
beauty. She had followed her lover to the
army. The latter w as a captain of artilcry ;
she never left him ; and when he was killed,
defended like a lioness the remains of him
she loved. She was a native of Paris ; her
name was Louise Belletz, and she was the
daughter of a fringe maker in Hue de Petit
At a Hotel, a short time since a girl in
quired of a gentleman at the table if his cup
was out.
“No,” said he, “but my coffee is.”
The poor girl was considerably confused
but determined to pay him in his own coin.
While ut dinner, the stage drove up, anil
several coming in, the gentleman asked :
“Docs the stage dine here ?”
“No, sir,” exclaimed the girl, in a sarcas
tic tone "but the pussengers do.”
