2 THE INDIANS.

Tho Rev. Mr. Stanley, tho Doan of Westminster, was an acquaintance of Bishop Mollvaino, and to show his respect for tho deceased, aud to gratify American Episcopalians, arranged for tho spe cial funeral services of the 18th. When the cof fin had been placed in front of tho aacrarium, tho services at once began, but instead of tho psalms appointed for the burial service, tho Easter day anthem, ( Christ, our Passover, is sacrificed for us,’ was sung, and Canon Conway read, as tho lesson, from 1 Thoss. iv. 13 to 10. Tho choir then sang, ‘ I board a volio from Heaven,* and tho Doan road the con cluding parts of tho service, commencing, 'Lord, have mercy upon us.’ Tho service was conclud ed after tho hymn 4 The saints on o&rth and those above,’ bad boon sung. After tho bene diction ninny of those present lingered to take a last farewell of tbo remains of tho Bishop, which wore enveloped in throe coffins, tbo outer one being covered with black cloth, aud those words were inscribed on a brass plafco: - ‘O. P. Mdl vaine. Bishop of Ohio: Born Jan. 18, 1799; Died March 12,1673.* Tho whole coromoulce in the Abbey lasted about thirty minutes. Tho Rev. W. J.

Soon af terwards, however, tho Rev. T. B. Yocum, T. Q. Adolsn, Dr. Dortulson, and Frederick Do Royster, and others of the joint Committee, arrived, ana had a consultation with the Rev, Mr. Lamson, when it wun decided not to removo tho body from tbo vessel, till Monday, when it will bo privately conveyed to Bt.

Vcsuviußja-AnotUcr Eruption Coming:* A correspondent of the London Times, writ ing from Naples under date of April 8, Bays: “ Vesuvius is assuming a menacing aspect, and is at this moment sending forth a vast column of smoke, with the clear blue sky In tbo back- ? round. Prof. Palmier! has at last spoken, and quote his words : “ The groat Voauvian con flagration of tho 2Cth of April, last year,'was the final expression of tho long period of erup tion which preceded it. After tho conflagra tion, a period of roposq was to bo ex pected, and wo have bad it. But in a volcano so active as Vesuvius has proved itself to bo during tho century, a period ol repose is composed of two phases, one of declination, the other of re sumption. Luring tho first the smoko decreases, tho smoko.holes omit gradually loss onorgotio acids; those show, instead, more decidedly car bonic acid, and tho temperature diminishes. In tho second place, the umoko becomes more copious and continuous in tho crater, the smoko holes increase in number ami activity, and, together with a high temperature, sulphuric acid and cbloroaio acid are omitted. Vesuvius has entered decided ly on tho second pljaso, since the smoko is more abundant and continuous; now smoko holes with sublimities appear around tbo crater, and tho acid emanations are very perceptible. Tho instruments of variation, and tho sismograph, which on tho Blh of March wore agitated when announcing tho earthquakes of tho 12th of that mouth, Lavo not yet returned to perfect repose. Tho phase of riprisa is tho commencement of a now eruptive period, of which it is impossible to say when it will burst out. It will probably bo control, at least at tho beginning.” Telegraphic Brevities* A Homoeopathic Convention will bo hold at Aim Arbor, May 7, to take measures to make tbo best of tho advantages accorded that medical faith in allowing a Homoeopathic Professorship in tho University.

Va., May 3.—The Lircctors and Superintendent of the Penitentiary, appointed by the bogus Board of Public Works of this State, after ineffectual attempts to obtain pos session, called in able counsel, and it is judged they have concluded to seek redress in tho courts. This is what Gov. Ja cobs desires, and tho bogus party have sought to evade. When the Constitution was formed last summer, it conferred largo appoint ing powers upon tho Governor, and tho domi nant party in tho Legislature, failing to elect tboir candidate for Governor, have endeavored to control those powers conferred by the Consti tution on tho Governor, and place it in tho hands of a Board of Public Works appointed by them,— hence the trouble between tbo two factions. Those are serious throats of impeachment, Ac. Gov. Jacobs is now master of tho situation, and it is believed the matter will go to tho court without farther trouble. Chinese Warfare* The Paris Temps, in its Chinese correspond ence, reports a homblo fact which markon the surrender to the Imperial troops of a city occu pied by the rebels. ■ Siu-Cheff, widen had long neon in. the hands of the insurgents, has fallen into the power of the army.

An English adventurer in the service of the Chinese army, and at the same time corre spondent for the Shanghao Courier, was present at the execution. All the victims died courage ously, exclaiming to their butchers that their death would bo avenged by their children. Some of them were unwilling to wait for that period, and throw themselves upon the soldiers, of whom they succeeded in killing four, and wounding several with poniards they had concealed in their sleeves. Fearful Tornado In Knnims, St. Louis, May 3.— Advices from Cloud County, Kan., mention another fearful storm, by which a number of Uvea wore lost, and much property was destroyed.

Tho article entitled “ Twilight, Accused and De fended,” displays knowledge of human nature, and delicate satire upon tbo same, Tboroaro many particulars noted in tbo lives, manners, and habits of celebrated persons ; and, in fact so many good things in this book, that tho only way to do it Justice is to read it. “ Romance of tlio Isnrcm”-Br Mrs* Lcouowomu Tho author of this work was, for some time governess to tho Boyal family of Siam. Having ad extended opportunities to acquaint herself with that country, its people, laws, and customs, sbo has woven that knowledge, together with many interesting incidents in connection, into s moHf'iutoreatiug narrative, which affords not only pleasure, but much information, to tho reader. One's sympathies are called into action by ’ the accounl of tbo almost unparalleled solf-sacriflco of Boon, who, herself tho wife of P'haya r’hi Chitt, on* gaged in tho service of tho girl Ohoy, at that time, tho King’s favorite, in order to promote his desire to possess Choy for his own. A lotloi written by Ohoy, without address or signature, being discovered, both Boon and her mistress were put to tho torture, that they might bo forced to disclose tbo name of tho person addressed. Boon underwent the most horrible sufferings, until, Laving become insensible, she was re stored to consciousness only to cast an appealing glance at Choy, whoso endurance was unequal to similar heroism, and who, in spite of her pity, and desire to emulate tho example of Boon, told, after extreme torture, tho name of bet lover, who, with his devoted wife, was put to a cruel death, Choy survived, at tho inter position of tho British Consul. A still moro touching Incident is that of tho loves of Tuptim and tho priest, Fhra Balat. Tuptim having boon appropriated to tho King, P’hra Balat, her betrothed, devoted himself to tbo priesthood. Tho poor girl, weary of her life, and longing for his presence, obtained, by moans of her servant Phim, the garments of a priest, and, clothing herself therein, gained admitonco to tho monastery, as one seeking to become a priest, and was placed under tbo instruction of PTira Bulat, who remained ignorant of her identity. Finally, by an uuforsoon accident, all being discovered, the two innocent ones, sus pected of guilt, wero dragged before their ac cusers and judges, and, after declaring their in nocence, wore put to cruel tortures to make them confess. This, too, proving unavailing, Phim’s life being saved by her mistress’refusal to divulge tbo moans by which she obtained her disguise, they wore put to death by Are; after which tho King had a dream which con vinced him of their innocence, and ho caused two’ beautiful, monuments to bo erected to their memory.

Tho book abounds in descrip tions, among which are those of tho customs of tho Rajpoots aud their human sacrifices of tho cities: Pak Laut, Bijropuroo, and the grottoes near tno Boyal Mountain. Tho account of tho trial for witchcraft includes a short chapter re lating English incidents and opinions, pertaining to the past, which seem almost as atrocious as mauy Siamese practices; also, a description of some of tho Siamese May Peak's heroism in releasing her mistress, tho Princess Lunartha Vismita, from her prison, aud afterwards sever ing her own tongue from Us roots with her dag ger, lest she might, by torture, be induced to be tray tboso doar to her, is most admirable and touching. Tho account of tho life and death of Bunqoau, aconvort to tho Bomou Catholic faith, is full of interest. Finally, tbo authoress, in her lust chapter, describes tho proclamations of her- Boyal pupil—then become King—of tho freedom of tho slaves. Tho book is supplemented by a. charming little story entitled “ A Legend of tho Gold and Silver Mines of Siam,” which gives an account of tho loves of P’hra Athiott and Fola Chow, or the Sun and tho Moon, with their in fluence upon tho deposits of gold and silver upon tho mountains.

In' Ids denial Mr. liarlau calls attention to tho fact that Mr. Filloy said ho did not know it to boa fact that tho money had boon paid to Harlan; hut Mr. Harlan omits to say that Mr. Fllley added that, although ho did not know It of his own personal knowledge, ho was as certain of it os that ho was sitting m tho chair ho then oo ciipiod.
