Through many an oH town we pa&te<l on our war to Truro, the inhabitants of which live in the primitive stjle?dressing neatly hut very oddly; the buildings haro thatchcd roofs, dia mond shape; the panes of glass are set in lead. The street* were very narrow and the spelling on the signs in the old-fashioned style; but everywhere I found the people open hearted and handed. We arrived at last at Truro, after baring en joyed a delightful ride through 90 miles of ever varying country. I was too tired te do much, so locking about the town a little. I retired to my room to be ready on the following morning to see the smeltiag of tin. The tin is not smelted at the mine; it is only prepared for it and then sent to different places ?Truro and Penzance, chiefly. It is found to be chen|>er to send the tin to the coals than to bring the coals to the tin. I was first shown the ore as it is received from the mine. It looked like shining black sand, of no great value. This is put in the furnace, a large fire made up underneath and the process of smelt ing begins. The heat and draft are very much increased by a lnrgechimney which is built up ward of a hundred feet in height. The beat passes all around the ore. After the melting process is carried on a sufficent length of time to separate tit* tin from the slag, the former is drawn off into a large iron tank; as it pas?cs out you notice large quantities of arscnic es caping in a blue flame. The liquid tin is then ladled into large inouldsholding some four hun dred pounds each. The blocks are about three feet long, one and a halt broad, and eight or nine inches thick. The value is to ?10 ster ling. per block, according to quality. I should have added?the stamp of the work is put upon each block before it is cold. The tin is also put up in blocks of fifty to one hundred pounds, and aiso in small rods, about the size of a man's little finger. The rod* are a foot and a half long and are packed in kegs. Many manufacturers of tin ware prefer the tin in this shape as being more easily worked up. IVhat I have above stated is all done after the tin leaves the mine. Another beautitul pro ce-< is that of chrystalization. Many blocks when taken from the mould are found to be im perfect and have to be remoulded. Each one i? snbjected to a great heat and when almost ready to run into a fluid state, it is struck by a l.trge weight and falls into ten thousand pieces ??[ all sizes and forms. One of them I have, looking as bright as silver. I hope to keep it ?o until my return. From the smelting house I went to the station and took the cars for one of the mining towns. As we passed along on either side huge piles of earth?taken down from the innermost parts of the earth?tall, brick chimneys, old mines once worked but now deserted?in many plnces fields of wheat growing over ground which had been disemboweled?were presented to our no tice Leaving the cars, in a few moments we were in the midst of the mining district of Eng land. Everywhere about us were signs of lite and activity, while hundreds of feet oelow the surface, tbou^and-t of miners with shovel, spade and pick-axc, were busy digging away at the earth, breaking the rvks in pieces?preparing them to be raided to the surface in the large iron skebbles. holding about two bushels each. The leads run in different directions; the ore is dag out. taken to the mouth of the shaft and the skebbles filled with it. A long iron chain running over rollers fora considerable distance ? making a peculiar rattling noi?e in passing over them?is attached to these, of which there are usually two?one descending while the other is rising The ore once raised to the sur face is taken to the stamping mill; but before g >ing into this the large pieces are br?ken up by hand aD-i then the mass is ready to be crushed into powder; h?avy iron weights oJ several hundred pounds, attached to long beams, are made by water power to strike on the ore? crushing it to pieces. The finer purls are wa-hed away into receptacle for them, by wa ter. which is kept constantly running through ? he mass. Thus the pounding?for I can call it nothing else, g<>es on till the whole is iu powder. Much of the work above ground is done by women and girls, dressed neatly and cleanly an I perfect pictures of health. This is the first process. But the ore is not yet ready to be sent away. Of course the powder contains muoh tin It is put in a box upon the top of which a -rream of water strikes, this washt-n the sand into a passage way where the mass passesalong in -mall quantities. I should add there is a Flight fall from the box and also at the end of the passage midway over this, a woman stands with a coarse limb brooin in hand, which she ke<-ps constantly passing slowly across. This and the weight of the tin, makes it fall at the bottom of the box and the passage way. This washing is done several tim*s. each time with a finer broom and more slowly than the preceding t ou will say alter all this washing the ore n now ready to be sent away. I!at look about you. Wh.it is that blue flauie you see coming from yonder chimney Are they engaged be low in a revel * Nothing ot th<? kind. Thi? dry powder washed so clean as you saw it a few minutes ago. is being burnt to extract the ar<enio from it. The |>ers<>ns employed in this work suffer very much and in addition their lives are shortened many years by iuhaling as they must, unavoidably, the fumes of the arsenic with which the ore is filled After the bumiug. the ore is pat in piles; part." taken from eaeh to the a**aycr, who from these parts de tartr.lnes the value of the piles, and they arc thus sold. according to the per centage of tin which they contain This makes up the dif ferent processes and will. I trust, give you some idea of mining. The miner*. a? a class, are a very intelligent l?eople, exposed, as as they constantly are, to danger?to death from an explosion taking place in a different manner from what was ex pected. which will send many from time to ??ternity. by a living death, buried in the rock*?their trust s in a Higher Power and we find the religious elements strong among them. <>r?

They remain below ground seven or eight hours. Children are not allowed to work below. Miners are not win*, an American would call paid. Three to four hundred dollars a year is considered good pay for an experienced miner. This sum is certainly none too tuuch with which to support a lauiily Many young men have goue to Australia, and withiu twoor three years the miners have been better paid and their con ditions improved. 1 might a l l the miner's life is a short one Working in water many times with the ther mometer at HO deg . he is in a constant perspi ratiou. and then the descent and a*cent of I.HIM) and 'J <xx) feet is no easy matter.

Through tnis wall they succeeded in tearing nn immense hole, rending asunder the bars of iron and filling their room with a huge pile of brick and mortar. By moan* of ropes manufactured out of their bed olothing, they descended into the prison yard, and passed the greater part of the night in fruitier attempts to scale the wall by aid of their ropes. Morning beginning to dawn, and their grapples obstinately refusing to take hold on the top of the wall, and with the energy of desperation they attacked the wall itselL In order to do this, they were necessi tated to re-enter the prison and obtain the piece of a broken shovel which had done them such good service in tearing down the wall of the house. The re-entranee into the prison was effected by means of the plank of which the steps are constructed that lead from the build ing into the yard. Having obtained their im plement. they set to work on the solid masonry of that massive wall. A small chink was dis covered, in which the point of the shovel would barely enter. A little mortar was loosened ; a small particle of stono gavo way; and then another and another, larger and larger, follow ed. Some workmen employed about the depot, passing the prison at an oarly hour, discovered what wasgoing on, and gave the alarm to the sheriff On entering the prison yard, no one was to be found. After searching for some time. Barnes was discovered concealed under the steps, and Kelly had re-entered his room, and was apparently in a very sound sleep, wholly unoonscious of what had occurred during the night. They are now lodged in other quar ters. and are properly secured and guarded." lIoftRiRi.K ' Most IIokkiri.k !?At the West minster |Nt|iee court, a young girl between six teen and seventeen years of age, of very prepos sessing appearance, whs brought before the magistrate under circumstances of a very jsin ful description Mr. lieorge Humphreys, an inspector of pol )" ice. said that at a quarter past eleven on Thurs l day night the girl was hrought in, and shortly afterwards became very ill. and had a succession of fits, during which she was attended by Mr. Pearce. the divisional surgeon. She was not locked up iu acell, but kept in the reserve room, and between one and two in the morning, when she had partially recovered, she asked permis sion to walk in the large yard which separates the station-house from tho court. It was gran ted, and she went out, but as witness was de termined to keep a watchful eye over her. he followed her in two or three minutes' time, but to his surprise could not at first discover her. He then went to a dark corner of the yard, where he found her partially strangled, and turning black in the face. Mr. T'aynter.?How had she done it? Mr Humphreys.?By tying a piece of tape as tightly as possible round her throat. Mr. l'aynter.?Did she say anything when she had sufficiently recovered to speak ' Mr. Humphreys.?Yes. she expresscdher firm determination todestroy herself at the very first opportunity : and I have had to keep a sharp watch upon her all night. Mr. Humphreys?.She refuses to give her real name, or any account of herself, but that she is upon the street. She is much depressed, and upou my endeavoring to soothe her she told me that she had been seduced by her own father, and that she had then abandoned her home in disgust and horror. 0* thr Ix'rfask.?The passion for snicide is on the increase in this country. If a young lady gets the - sulks," she takes strychnine and makes ' a body" of herself. If a young gentleman gets crossed in love or can't pay his board bill, he don't fly by night, as formerly, but he just g'>es to the druggist, takes an ounce of Itudanum. stretches out his legs, and ' dies handsome The Evening Mirror says that there are more suicides committed in the I'ni ted States than in France. It also says that something should be done to check this folly. The Romans attempted to stop the progress of the crime ot self-destruction by making the un successful offender liable to capital punishment and the forfeiture of his property, though these punishments appear to have been limited in their application. When suicides, however, i became common among females at one |**riod, 1 a special law exposing their naked persons to the public gaze put an end to the practice. The Spartans disgraced the suicide by cutting ofl the right arm and burying it in a grave by it self. The corpsc of a suicide in England is no longer buried in the highway with a stake , driven through it, but its interment takes i place between 9 ond 12 o'clock at night, with out performance of the usual Christian rites 1 The Prussian provides that if one has mur dered himself to escape legal punishment, the sentence shall be carried out as far sis practi- 1 cable and dccent on the lifeless corpse. The Austrian law excludes the corpse of a murderer from sepulture in a churchyard. \ jf It is reported on good authority that ' Mr Ton Broeck won $300,000 on the New Mar- j ket race, by Prioress winning the Cesarewitcsh i Handicap. The betting was low to I against Prioress, so that Mr. T B. was required to risk only$6.00? to win this immense amount. This winning must make him good for his compara tively ainsll losses at the previous races?cover all his expenses in Englaud?and leave hira as clear profit of the operation, at least a quarter of million of dollars.

It once happened that a certain bishop dined with a curate, and they were waited up?n at dinner by two quite pretty female at tendants. of some 20 years each. After dinner, the bishop remarked to the curate upon this fact, and asked him if he were not aware that by a rule of the church, he could maintain but one female servant, who must have attained at least 40 years of age.

Louisville, Ky. Brooklyn Orthopakdic Institution, April, 1R.S4. After most careful examination of Mr. J.

I consider, moreover. Mr. Tolnaa fully qualified to determine the focus of the eye,l?oth by his optical knowledge and experience, and by means of Ins optometer.

In the experience of even two years, I I nave found great difficulty in obtaining Spectacles that were ex actly adapt ed to the weakness of my sight. This in convenience Mr. Tobias seems to have removed for the present by the substitution for me of !>etter and more suitable Glasses. They are clear, chryatal-like and eomfortalde to my eyes. 1 would commend him to those who from age or other infirmity require ar tificial aid id this way. J. J. SIM KI N'S, M. D. Wilmington. N.

To persons who have had the sight of their ey ea so impaired as to require the use of Glasses, I would recommend Mr. John Tobias as a suitable person from whom to obtain such Glasses as they may re quire. as he haa suited me with a pair of Spectacles for a far and near sight.
