ono of which tho Queen, desiring to sco

singing a hymn nnd accompanying him

aloud for her, and then for his family,
and then for tho nation, concluding
with a prayer for himself, that It might
plcaso Ood to avert his heavy calamity
ftom him, but If not, lo glvo him resig

tears, and his reason again lied.

Wo havo already nlludod to tho extra
ordinary frankness of tho utterances of
the Engllih press In regard to tho Queen
and her family. Readers of Emerson's
writings will remember that in his book
on "English Traits," published fifteen
years ago, ho exulted over the boldnoss
of tho Times, as Illustrative of tho cour-
ago of a pcoplo who "dared to print all
thoy know, dared to know all tho facts,
and did not wish to bo flattered by
hiding tho extent of tho public disaster"
and it must ha admitted, to tlio credit
of tho Times, that it, and not Jlr. Dlsra
oll, has been foremost In pointing atten
tion to tho public disasters made immi
nent by tho had humors of tho present
Itoyal family. Us criticisms of tho
Queen havo buen more tomperato than
its rebukes of I ho I'rinco of Wales per
haps through a suspicion of tho real
statoof tho Itoyal mind, which it now
so sharply outlined by tho Dlsranli ru
mors but, should tlio dull and sottish
young l'rlnco come totholtegent, as tho
Pourtli Cleorgo was, ho can oxpect littlu

whoso destinies ho will hold butn nom
Clearly, however, tho Time and tlio
Disraeli story aro in accord, and tho out
como of this remarkable revelation will
bo nwnlled with peculiar interest. Tho
English aro impatient over tho clianco

Ono night Nero, dressed in women's
clothes, was in ono of tho palaces of

tho most loathsome orgies, when a great
uproar was heard in tlio streets. A mes'

that Oalba, nt tho head of an avenging
army, was marching rapidly upon

out In tho streets, and that a countless

Tho wretched tyrant, as cowardly as
ho was Infamous, was ritruek Willi dis

most costly vases In fragments on tho

for a dagger, examined Its pollnlii-d

and with his long hair Hutu-ring in the

Soveral of his companions had aceom

that ho should fleo to u country seat
about three inlhs fiom Homo, and (hero
conceal himself, Insane with terror,
bareheaded, In his shameful garb, ho
covered his faco with his liaudkortiilef,
leaped upon a horse, and succeeded
through tho thousand perils, in gaiiilui1
his retreat. Just before he reached tho
villa, somo alarm so frightened him that
ho leaped from his horse, and plunged
into a thicket by tlio roadsido. Through
brlors and thorns, with torn clothes and
lacerated flesh, ho reached tlio Insecure
asylum ho nought.
In tlio meantime, tlio Tinman Smalu
had hurriedly assembled. Emboldened
by the Insurrection, and by tho ap
proach of dalba, they parsed a decree
declaring Nero to bo tho enemy of Ids
country, nnd dooming him to death,
more vwjnrum that is, nccordlng to
ancient custom. Homo one of Nero's
companions brought him tho tidings In
his hiding-place. Pallidum! trembling,
ho inquired, "And what Is death mord

" It Is to ho stripped naked, to havo tho

scourged to death 1"
Tlio monster who had amused himself
in witnessing tho torturo of others, re
coiled with horror front tho dreadful

endeavored to ncrvo himself to plungo

Again ho grasped tlio dagger, anxious

threw It aside with a groan of despair.
Just then tho clatter of horsemen was
heard, and a party of dragoons was seen
approaching. His retreat was discov

bo helpless in tho hands of his enemies.
Then there would bo no posslblo e.scapo
from tho Ignominious nnd agonizing

violently against It. Ho thus succeeded
in severing tho Jugular vein, and his

Thus perished this monster of deprav

on tho 19th of June, A. D 03. Jinny
Christians at tho timo supposed Nero to
bo tho Anti-Christ. Tho wretch had
reigned thirteen years, and died in tho
thirty-second year of his age. In vlow
of his career, tho only solution upon
which tho mind can reposo is found In
tho declaration of Scripture: "After
death comes tho judgment."
Theso ovents occurred eighteen hun

A mischief-brooding mistako Is mado
when pastors and people fail lo estab
lish and maintain between eacli other
a business relation Just as independent
of tho spiritual as it is pos-dblo to mnko
It. The physician may he, and In mul
tltudcsof Instances Is, thotlcarcst family
friend; but ho lives by his profession,
and his fcrvlces havo a recognized
money valuo which he expects to re
ceive without a question. IIo would
prefer, perhaps, to render his services
without reward, especially to thoso
whom hu loves ; but ho has mouths to
feed and provision to make for rainy
days, and for tho days of helplessness
that como at last to all. So, though
lovo and sympathy, and self-denial for
lovo and sympathy's sako may havo

duty, ho goes homo nt night, takes
down his blotter, and enters ills charges
as formally as if ho had brcn selling
farm produco or tin-ware.
There is a fooling in many parishes
that it Is a gift by whatsoever any
pastor may bo profited by them, that
i pastor earns nothing, and that lu nil
things huh) tho beneficiary of tho parish.
To mako his matter a thousand times
worse, there aro pastors not a fow who
tako tho position to which tho parishes
assign them, nnd assist in perpetuating
tlio mistake. Thoy are men whoso
hands are always open to receive what
overcomes; who delight in uotiation
parties, antl who grasp right and left,
with unsatlablu greed, nt gifts. Thoy
become so mean spirited that they do
not llko to pay for anything, and do
not really think it right that they
should bo called upon to pay for any
thing. They aro sponges upon their
people and tlieeomiiiiinlty. Wherever
they happeu'to be, they " llo down"
on tho brethren. There Is nothing of
value that they are not glad to receive,
and thero Is nobody that they are not
glad lo bo indebted lo for favors. Somo
times they aro extravagant, antl havo
a graceless way of getting Into debt,
out of which they aro helped yearly,
and out of which they expect to bo
bellied yearly. Tho abject meanness
into which a pastor can sink, and the
corresponding and consequent power
lessuess Into which ho can descend, And
too frequent Illustration among tho
American ministry. Itlsshocklngand
sickening that there aro somo men who
seem fbtccd by their parishes to llvo In
this way, and it Is still moro disgusting
to find men who bcem tolerably com.
fortablo and contented whllo living in
this way. If n man Is lit to preach, ho
Is worth wages. If ho Is worth wanes,
they should bo paid with all tho busi
ness regularity that Is demanded and
enforced in business life. There Is no
man in tho community who works
harder for tho money ho receives than
tho faithful milliliter. Thero Is no mau
In whoso work tho community is in
tercstid to whom regular wages, that
shall not cost him a thought, aro bo im-
portnnt. Of what posslblo tlso lu a
pulpit cm any man bo whoso weeks nro
frittered away In mean cares and dirty
economies? Every month, or overy
quarter-day, overy pastor .should bo
stiro that there will bo placed in his
hands, ns his Just wages, money enough
lo pay all his expenses. Then, without
a bonso of special obligation to anybody
ho can preach tho truth with freedom,
and prcpnro for his public mlnistrntlotis
without distraction. Nothing moro
crtiol ton pastor, or moro disastrous to
his work, can bo dono llian to force
upon him a feeling of dependeuco upon
tlio charities of his flock. Tlio ofllco of
such a man does not liso In dignity
abovo that of n court-fool, llo is tho
creature of tlio popular whim, nud a
preacher without inlluenco to those who
do not respect him or his olllco sufll
clently to pay him tho wages duo to a
man who devotes his life to them.
Jfanllncss cannot llvo la such n man,
except It bo in torturo a torturo en
dured simply becauso there nro otliors
who depend upon tho charities doled
out to him.
Oood, manly pastors nml preachers
do not want gifts: thoy want wages.
It is not a kindness to eko out insuffi
cient Halarles by donation parties and
by benefactions from tho richer mem
bers of a flock. It is not a merit, as
thoy seem to regard it, for parishes or
individuals to do this. It is an ac
knowledgment of ludcbtness which
thoy aro too mean to pay In a business
way. Tho pastor needs it and they
owo it, but they tako to themselves tho
credit of benefactors, and plaeo him In
an awkward and a falso position. Tlio
inlluenco of this stato of things upon
tlio world that llcsoutsldoof tho sphere
of Christian belief and activity Is bad
beyond calculation. Wo havo had
enough of tho patronago of Christianity
by a half-scolUng, half-tolerating world.
If Christians do not sufficiently recog-
nizo tho legitimacy of tlio pastor's call
ing to render him fully his Just wages,
nnd to assist him to maintain his Inde
pendence before tho world, they must
not blame tho world for looking upon
him with a contempt that forbids ap
proach and precludes influence. Tho
world will bo qulto ready to tako tho
pastor at tho valuation of his friends,
and tho religion ho teaches at tho prico
its professors aro willing to pay, in a
business way, for its ministry. Dr. I

Tho sources of volcanic eruptions in
Hawaii are two. First, tho crater of
Ki-latt-o-n, situated upon tho eastern
slopo or this mountain, mid about mid
way between its summit and tho so.t.
It is n vast pit, nlno inilos In circum
ference, sunk in tho flank of tho moun
tain, and varying in depth, in different
years, from a thousand to fifteen hun
dred feet, nccordlng as the sea of molten
lava beneath its floor will bo slowly
raUed by thoaccumulatlng lavas below j
and when their lateral pressure becomes
at last too great to bo resisted, tho mol
ten torrent, rending lis way with Irro-
sistablo forco through rock ami earth,
and shaking tho wholo Island with tho
throes of its progress, Anally breaks to
tho surface, live, ten, or twenty miles
front tho crater. Tho river of tiro leaps
from tho grouud, a mighty fountain
that sometimes plays a thousand feet
high, with a Jot that is soveral hundred
feet in diameter, nnd pours down tho
flank of the mountain toward tho sea.
This it often reaches, enlarging tho area
of tho Island by pushing out now capes
and promontories of lava in to the water.
Tho lava thus ijected may remain, In
many placo- warm and smoking for
months after tho eruption lias ceased ;
yet I havo seen spots wliero tho natives,
pulverizing tho cooled lava.aud mixing
with it a few dead leavos before plant
ing in it, had obtained good crops of
sweet potatoes from what a year before
was a torrent of liquid lire. Nature
thus ronows thosoil, ftirnishlnga brail
now artlclo at each eruption, whlto-hot
from her chemical laboratories In tlio
center of thooarlh.
With each eruption " tho bottom Is
knocked out,1' so to speak, of tho groat
crater of ICi-lau o-n. Tho Hood of mol
ten lava upon which it rests is rapidly
drained away, and tho vast floor of In
durated lavas, an urea of six square
miles nt tlio bottom of tho pit, goes
crashing still farther downward, three,
four, live hundred feet to tho central
fires; ns when tho water, to compare
great things wllli-small, Is let oil from
a frozen mill-pond, nnd tho Ico settles
down upon tho bottom. Tho mountain
wall Is probably not entirely solid and
compact, as tho lavas aro extremely
fluid, uud In running oh" honeycomb its
structure, leaving numerous caverns
behind tliem.through which subsequent
emotions forco tholr way. Yet tho
pressure required fur tho lava to rend
tho mountain wall Is estimated at not
less than llvo hundred pounds to tho
souaro inch, or a million pounds for n
stream two feet deep and seven feet
broad. When tho bieadth of tho lava
stream Is measured by miles Instead of
feet, forco enough Is exerted to shntio
the island to Its foundations.
Tho grand eruptions of Kl lau o-a oc
cur, with some approach to regularity,
at Intervals of about eight years. Hut
the volcano does not, llko Vesuvius,
Etna, or Stromboll, enntlno lis activity
to special occasions. Tho tiro rages
continually In tho southern end of tlio
great crater, where a hike, of melted
lava tos-es Its red biirges and pours
forth Its sulphurous vapors without
ceasing. This lake, tho "Ilchi Jfau
mau," or ' Houso of Everlasting Eiro
of tho heathen mythology, may bo
safely npiiroached by tho traveler at
almost any time.
Tho appcaranco of this tako varies
greatly, howover, at dlllerent times,
Sometimes tho lava Is so far sunken
below Its banks that tho traveler cannot
roach It, and comes away qulto disap
pointed with what ho has seen. Agalr
in times of great activity, tho fiery boa
may overflow upon tlio bottom of tho
crater, or forco itbelf up through numer
ous cracks and chasms In tho floor of
indulated lavas. I was onco in tho

gradually roso many feet nbovo tho
lovel wlioro I and others stood, at first
qulto unconscious of tho tcrrtflc process
that wns goln;: on no near us. Tho (lory
waves, lapping over tho margin, con
gealed where they fell, and thus bulltlcd
up, Iltlloby little, their inclosing wall,
about thirty feet abovo tho level of tlio
bottom of tho crater j it was a boiling
mass of fluid lavas, half a mile In diam
eter, that surged nnd thundered and
sent down n threatening roar. Hplashos
of liquid lire, hut led over tho margin
of its confining barrier, fell among our
company. Warned by this danger, wo
withdrew to n short distance, and
awaited tho breaking forth of -tho Im
prisoned fire. Wo had hardly gained
our now point of observation before the
lava wall gavo way In two places with
a thundering crash and roar, and from
each of tho rents thus mado a torrent of
liquid Are poured over a clllf fifty feet
high, Into n rough channel of a former
flow, rtbarlng, glowing, smoking, and
wreathed In bluish flames, It ground
along tho lava channel with a peculiar
dull thunder, that was caused by the
ponderous weight of tho moltoti mass.
It lapped up huge rocks and boro them
away upon its surfaco; Icouldseo them
osclllato sluggishly upon tho rod river,
and finally melt and sink Into it ltko so
much wax. Tho power and splondor
of this sudden display, tho flerco sweep
of tho mighty torrent, tho strango pro
cess that had heaped up tho flood of
lava to disgorge it with such resistless
power, all mado a spectacle nevor to bo
forgotten by any of tho party who
witnessed It. Dr. T. M. Ooan, in Scrib

The Has Wells of l'cnusj lvnnla.
Hon. Ncal Dow communicates to tho
Boston Congrcgatlonalist tho following
account of natural gas wells :
"In many parts of llio Keystono Stato
wells, bored for tho purposo, yield an
abundant flow of illuminating gas
identical In character with that manu
factured in our cities from bituminous
coal. Theso wells ore from two hun
dred to seven hundred or eight hundred
feet deep, nud from three Inches to
llvo or six inches in diameter. Thoy
nro 'bored' through the various strata
of earth and stono, nud nro lined, llko
oil wells, with wrought-lron pipes made
for llio purposo. In many'placc.s theso
wells are of great valuo, affording suffi
cient fuel for driving tlio machinery of
largo manufacturing establishments.
In somo placets tho Biipply of gas is suf
ficient to repay tlio entire cost of tlio
well nnd fixtures in a single year or
" At Erie, I saw several of theso gas
wolls cmployod In this way. Directly
on tho shore of tho lake aro located tho
works for tho supply of tho city with
water. Tlio water Is forced intoa btand
pipo, two hundred and thirty feet high,
by which it is distributed wUhsufllcient
pressure over tho entire city. Two
enormous engines do this work, being
driven by steam generated by gas flow
ing from n well sunk upon tho premi
ses. Wo wore permitted to look into
tho furnaces, which wero all aglow with
a brilliant flame, issuing from a scries
of small pipes connected with tho gas
well. There was no dust nor smoko,
and no flremau was required. Thoouly
attention necessary was to turn on or
oira littio gas according to tin) indica
tions of the bteam gauge. Tho works
wero to bo enlarged, and another well
was In progress to furnish gas fur tho
" Thejo gas wells aro found also In op
eration for domestic purposes ; I saw It
employed In a gentleman's houso. In
tho library was an open llrcplaco, and
a wood Aro or what scorned to bo such
for tho terra cotta upon tho andirons
was an admirable imitation of hickory
wood. A low Aro was burning, for tho
morning was not cold; tlio lady of tho
houso turnod a small taper near tho
tiro placo and tha flame Instantly In
creased In volume, and continued to in
crcaso as tho gas was turned on until
tho flreplaco was full of ilamo, Issuing
from terra cotta, and wo had what
seemed to bo a roaring hickory wood
This gas was then wholly turnod off,
nud tho Aro gradually diminished and
Anally expired. Tho lady then with a
match lighted n pleco of paper and
throw It upon tho wood, turning on tho
gas nt llio samo inomunt, nud wo had
Instantly tho low Aro which wo round
at tho beginning. In ovory room In tho
house, except tho kitchen, was a simi
lar apparatus, and Arcs could at any
moment bo lighted with ns much faclll
ty as tho chandeliers lu tho samo
apartment, supplied with gas from tlio
" In tho kitchen was a largo and com
pleto range, sulllclent for a family of
thirty persons. When wo entered, a
low tiro was burning, and sundry vos
sels wero simmering over tho flame,
Tho cook turned tho tap, and Instantly
tho raugti was Ailed with Hro Hulllclcnt
for all culinary operations up to the full
capacity of tho apparatus. Nothing Is
employed lu that houso forheatlngantl
Illuminating except this g.v.
" Tho well Is In tlio bark yard, sufll-
clently removed from tho mansion, and
Is covered by a small houso. tno noro
Is llvo hundred and twenty feet deep,
lined with Iron pipe, and furnished with
a safety valve, llko that of u steam
boiler, and thu gas Is brought into tho
houso and conducted over It, lu thu
same mode employed In tho ea.su of
ordinary btreut gas or water, T lio en
tiro cost of this well and llxtures, ro.tdy
for u-o, was twonty-flvo hundred dol
lars and thosupply of gas was sulllclent,
I thought, for two or three llrst class
houses. Nothing can poslbly bo moro

This sort of thing might havo worked
woll Willi old Olranl, but it don't fool
anybody now. I havo tried It. I
bought half a pound of lea at Pondorry's
tho other day, nrtor rending tho nbovo
paragraph, nud wheeled It homo In tho
most ostenUtlous manner, to sco If
I'ondcrry.who was looking on, wouldn't
ofler to trust mo for all tho tea that I
wanted, but ho didn't. On tho con
trary, I heard him speak up sharp to a
clerk as I went nround tho corner, ask
ing him if thai tea was paid for.
I afterivnrds took a wlicolbarrow and
went to a flour storo on Central Avo
nuc. Bought a small bag of flour, 25
pounds, I think, and loaded it on, tho
head of tho concern looking at mo with
'Now,' I thought, 'is my opportunity.
This is a Olrard feller, llo will toll mo
to como and got all tho flour I can
wheel away, anil pay whon I got ready.
Perhaps bo will offer mo a partnership
in his storo. Then I spat on my hands
and whipped them over my shoulders
to encourago a vigorous circulation,
rubbed them together smartly, and
clutching tho handles of tho barrow,
slnrteil off at a brisk trot. I had pro
ceeded about a square, whon I heard
somo ono shouting after mo. Look
ed around, and saw tho Hour man com
ing on a dead run.
'Ha, hat' thought I, 'the thing works
admirably. Tlio examplo of Stovo Ol

of character In being my own porter, to
say nothing of my beer, and my for-

recognizes my merits, and comes to offer

sovcro look on his faco as ho camo up to

Whllo reflecting that it might ba 'his

' It is coming now,' though 1 did Lot

Jtay I enquire for what purposo, Bir?

with a darker frown than before. You

In n stato of nature no raco of ani

to tho niodo of llfo which Ood has or

joyment consists In pursuing their

Tho woodpecker, whllo boring a tree,
and clinging to it for hours by its scan-
dent feet, Is just ns happy ns tho oaglo
perched upon tho mountain clllf, or
pouncing on Its quarry from tho clouds.
Neither could lead tho llfo of tho other,
but each Is happy in tho btato assigned
to It; and tills Is observablo throughout
tho realms of nature. A rat, burrowing
in a ditch, Is as happy ns it could deslro
so long as It finds sulllclent to feed-
upon; and a heron, Immovably fixed,
watching for tho approach of small
fishes and'frogs, has, there can bo" Httlo
doubt, as much pleasure as any lover of
tho angel can enjoy whllo wearing out
tlio summer day, waiting lu muto ex
pectation tho wlshod-fur blto. Wo gen
erally connect rapidity or slownoss of
motion with tho ideas wo form of an
animal's happiness. If, llko tho lor

btcps, wo pity or dcaplso, ns tho mood
may bo, Its melancholy sluggish conill

perhaps, incurred as much of tho odium
bo unjustly attached to It, by its inac
tivity, as by tho supposed loathsome-
liens of Its appearance. On llio other
hand, enjoyment boems nlwayis to bo
tho concomitant of celerity of motion.
A lly, dancing in tho air, seems morn

than tho tnall, which creeps almost
Imperceptibly upon a leaf, or tho mole,
