Kinz. min:sters I ar.d policemen, in their wvera! sphere*, j are all scorched and shrivelled up into nothingness I am disposed to think that a Neapolitan might now wear a gir dle round his waist, or a beard, or a wide awake, so all-absorbing is the erup tion of Vesuvius. Wc have been ex peciing longing for it for some time The wills at Re&ina had been dried up. j More than once since 1850 the mountain Ihas thundered and smoke?, and in the Jhevionirg of the year a portion of the crater fell in. Gnat numbers of stran ger* have, therefore, waited till very late in the reason, in the hope of seeiug this extraordinary spectacle, and have just 1 taken their l< ave when the mountain, ts Jin <4dispetto" breaks out. The princi pal guide, who is called Cozzalino. re 1 ported on the morning of the 1st ot May that he had just ascendcd the mountain, lai i that on arriving on the summit, there j a thou-and reports as of cannon, land then was thrown up a discharge of j'vJ-ho; stones. The rain and inist, a^l I pmokc. huwe-ver, all mingled together, J prevented a near approach or nearer ob I nervation, and we are, therefore, for th? Ipie ent, left to cur unaided SbaeftrttKM I During the whole of yesterday, nothingI I was to be seen but smoke and cloud-. I which enveloped net the mountain I I l>ut the whole co:;>t, p.nd then swept I I away in mmense volumes towards ('apri. I J In the very centre of the cloud, however. I I mjght be seen an ashy sulphurous c>>1-| jo:ed plain, which by a shade difference I j in the culor, and jy the well-marked J j outline, indicated that it was not all I {smoke, but that lava was coming down. I As came on the heavens weiel in a bright jiow, and the whole popula- I tion liocked down to the mole of Santa I Lucia, ? u see the magnificent spectacle.! It v?? one of those undefined scenes! : which give the imagination full play I ? T he form of the mountain was indistin-l !2*nsiiab e, nothing was to be seen but! cloud1, < moke and lire. Up to the very! zenith the skv was covered with l:?rg?,| bn.beu: clcud.s, black an ink.and frir-gedl I wi.h white: on^reneath, and half wa;, I jdown the mountain, every thing was on I I lire, whilst right in the centre of it sho? I j up a cone of black smoke, i till lower! j a Jul , <iark clouds cowered the base oil i rit: iiiou itain, having too, at their ccn'rel i j. ;ece and contrast the i tver of lava whic I i is mining down towards i^sina. A fc? I days cinee I was exploring wi'h the! mincTS among the ruins which still la j. I buried under the modern city. The I neighboring mountain was rumbling and I smoking,"and referring the inhabitants, I as it were to the h: itory of the past, but I j they took no notice of it, and I doubt I } whether they now do so, except toca'cu-1 51a*e the amount of p-ofi: it may bring in j j to them, for an eruption of \ esuviui is to I l them as good as a tire to the London! ' thieves. During the whole of last nigh: | ?there was a perfect procession ot cai-J jri.v,?s towards R sina. The scene was! * rendered s* ill grander by an eclipse of I I ti e moon, w hich took place about two! hours and a half past midnight. ' Love, Intempf.rancb, and Self mir Dii:.?Th?' Lifay*.tte (hid.) /tnerican, o! j. recent uj..e, ha^ the following : We are ind-:otei to ex-Mayor O'Brian jusi returned from L gan.,port, tor the following : On Friday evening last about dusk, Spencer D<tns a young man about twenty-five years old, nephew of the late George Tipton, blew his brains out with a pistol, loaded with seven buckshot, under the following circumstances: lie w:^ a printer, and worked in the office of . r e Pharos ; he had lor sometime past b - n addicted to hard drinking, lie had been er.dtavcriug to pay his addres.-es to a young lady named Baldwin who re sides on the island in the V\ abash, by whom his suit was rejected. On Friday evening he went to the gate of the house and called the young lady, sajing he wished to bid iier good bye, as he was going away. Upon coming out she pcr ceived n pistol in his hand which he was attempting to conceal behind hirn. She immediately ran into the house in great al&im, fastened the door, and sent a boy through a back window lor her father. Iier lather soon arrived, and fouud Davis sitting upou the porch. As he entered the gate, Davis rose, and Mr. Baldwin, perceiv?ag a pistol in his hand wliich he was in the act of raising, said to him. " Davis, don't hurt me." Davis replied. " No, Baldwin, I wouldn't harm a hair of your head," and immediately dis charged the pistol into his own right temple. He fell, bleeding copiously, with a horrid wound in the head, outot which t: e brain immediately oozed, but, never theless, he lived for several hours. Young Davis has always been consid ered an amiable, harmless, and good hearted young man, and his funeral was attended by a large concourse of sympa thizing friends. Soldiering wim the Gilding Off.?

TnE Origin op ma White, rni to, AtiDTHS Black M \.v. ? In Washington Irvings new work, "Wolfret Roost," we iind the following pleasant legend : When the Great Spirit had made three men, he called ihein together and showed Litem three boxes. The first was filled with books and maps, and papers. Tho second with tiows and arrows, and knivts a:nl toir.a'iawks. The third with spades and axes, hoes and hammers. "These, ray sons,' said he, *4are the means by which you are to live; choose among them according to your fancy," The white man, being the favorite, had ih?; lirst choice, lie passed by the box ot working tools without notice; but when he came to the weapons for war : uuting, he stopped and looked hard at ?hein T lie red ma n t rem bled. for be had set his heart upon that box. The whits man, however, after looking upon it for a moment, parsed on, and choose the box of books and papers. The red man s turn fame next, and you may be sure he t< \Zed with joy upon the bows and ar rows and tomahawks. As to the black man, he had no choice left but to put up with the box of tools. From this it is clear that the Great Spirit intended the white man should learn to read and wr:te; to understand Ail about the moon and stars, and to make everything, even rum and whiskey. 1 hat thy red man should be a Ural-rate hunter, and a mighty warrior, but he was not to learo anything from books, as the i Grett spirit had not given him any; nor he was not to make rum and whiskey, Ie.-?i he should kill himself with drinking. As to the black man, as he had nothing fe i. working tools, it was clear he was to work for the white and red man, which lie has continued to do.

After a week she re turned and found that her husband had left for the country to get work, and lit tle Berlha had been taken to the hospital at \\ ar?J s Island. She applied for and obtained permission to go lo Ward's Is and, and was then seized with typhus fever. On her recovery, she found that both oi her children were dead! She i thin return*d to the boarding house to get the two trunks which had been left there, but was told that btr husband owed *7, on payment of which she could iiave il e u. She then obtaiued a situa tion. earned the money, but when she ?^ot possession of the trunks, she found ?hat they had been troken open and nip ped of several valuable articles! The ca?e is one of peculiar hardship.?AT. Y. Express. Alas! Peioa Stove-pipe ?"JohnPhc& nix write.* a letter to the editor of the California Pioneer, lamenting the de struction of a stove-pipe for which he cherishcd a peculiar affection. We give his own feeling description: '* Risirg a-*>ve the kitchen chimney to the noble altitude of nearly twelve feet, ;t pointed to a better world, and was pleasantly suggestive of hot cakes for breakfast. Fn m the window of my back porch 1 have gazed for hours on that no ble structure; and watching its rotary cap shifting with every breeze, and j?our. ing forth clouds of gas and vapor, I have nausea on politics, and fancied myself a politician. It was an accomplished stove-pipe. The metody accompanying its movements?inaptly teimcd creak ng, by the soulless?g*ve evidence of its ta*te for music, and its proficiency in drawing was the wonder and delight of our family circle. It had no bad habits; it did not even smoke. I fondly hoped to enjoy its society for years, but one by one our dearest treasures are snatched from us; the soot fell, and the stove-pipe has followed suit." New Style op Babt. -The police, a few days since, visited a certain house in this city, under the expectation of find ing some liquors "intended for bale." * very thing, however, appeared quiet and home-like. The "spirits," if about, were invisible, and made no "manifesta tions" of their presence. The good la dy of the house sat at the side of ths cradle, humming a lullaby to her help less little one, who was sound asleep, and well covered up, so that the light should not hurt its ' dear little blue eyes." One ol the officers, however, being the father of a family, and fond ofbabi?s, thought he would just peep under the coverlet, and get a glimpse of its innocent coun tenance. lie did so, aud behold! The infant, by some horrible demoniac in fluence, was suddenly changed into a cradle full of demijohns, containing spir ituous liquors! They therefore seized the baby in its new shape, and intend to knock its brains out when Judge Carter shall so order .?Portland Argus.
