TH: MUltllKKKK'S OltllHAlt 1IY CI.MIKNCI MOWllItVY. I was alwas fond of the seieneoof physiognomy. Krom my youth ii)) I was noted for my proclivity for reading the character of a man from his face ; and I finally became such an adept in the art, that I could occasionally mio.s tho very thoughts of thu individual whoso coun tenance I was studying. Soon after the gold fever broke out, I went to California ; and ibciv, I mti-t confes-vtinong what else lliore was to in terest me, I hud a grand opportunity for exercising my skill upon alUoitsof laces, seen under all sorts of circumstance., from the highest triumph of success to the deepest despair of failure. I first tried my luck at digging gold myself, but soon tired of that ; and believing I could make money faster and witli less labor.I opeued a kind of a grocery and pro vision store, and went regularly into tho business of trade, buying most of my ar ticles at Saciamento,getting thorn hauled to my quarters, and disposing of them at a fair advance to the miners and others. My store, as I dignified my place ol trade, consisted of a rude skeleton of poles, with a sufficiency of cheap iniHlin drawn over them ami pinned down to the earth, and was i locked only with thu most salable articles of 'which Hour, pork and whiskey found the most ready market especially whiskey, In thu dry season it was very du-ty, and everybody seenud to be dry with a thiist which mere water would not ipiencli. If a man was successful ho wanted wlii-key to bring his body up to the altitude of Ids spirits i if unsuccessful, ho wanted whis key to bring his spirits up tt the altitude of his body ; if it chanced to he a litlle was viM-v hot. ho wanted whiskey to cool cool.ho wanted whiskey to warm liim; if it him: he needed whiskev in the morning to make him bright and active; lie needed whiskey at night to lest him and make him sfcci) well : he wanted il whin ho bouuht.and when he sold ; wln-n lie won, and when lie lost ; when lu- stood tip.and when ho sat th'Wn; in shoit, whiskey as the great lvguialoi-uf all hiitn.i i feel tug- the genuine nxn- uie ami con st qurniiv 1 Hill ail im:n i.sc uusiuisa in whiskey. iow t!ns,tlioiinli somewiiai ureiuvaiu, brings me to my story. -UV store being Uio headquarters oi that locality for wnwki-v anil p'ovisions, was biounht in eiMitact with nearly eveiy sieciimn of the iwif.i homo that eiilun il into i hat region ; aim sucii an other c iiulomi ration i-f Inli-.biack ami r,d Mich anolhi r nii.vtnre of gentlemen laliorer, mountain! ers, gaiubli rs, thieves and assassins -it wnnld be hard to find outside thi' limits of California Of coinse 1 had a chanci- to study all soils of faces to my houi's commit ; but hay- nig, as 1 hiue said, tK0"iiie au adept in the art, au oulinaiy e u den. .m e, or a man governed ov oi din try passions, whether gentle or brutish, did not inter est me. I wnnteil to gel hold ot what is U-imi'i! a charaelir or one whose exter nal would give no indication of his.inler ualto anv but a connoisseur or one-that would leally puzzle voit to tell what lo think of him. Among the many, Mich a one I at length fount). At first I did not uotico liim did not think of him. At a casual glance there was nothing to distinguish him from the herd. Ho eamo in quiet ly. unobtrusively, purchased a quantity of Hour, poik au'd tea, paid for thu saino in trolil dust. and went out about his busi ness, lie repeated his visits at different. intervals, pern qis somo nan dozen nines, li'lore lie atltacted my attention lo any thing peculiar in his appearance, uud then I should have been nl it loss to say what I saw more in him at lat than nt fust. lie was apparently about twiuty-livo vears of aire, of medium lieiuht and slen der figure, of a daik complexion, regular lealiires, wun tiaiu, suaigiu nair, iiiuk eves, and a beard that covered tho lower nail of his face in nil of which there was nothing lemaikaliie- nothing strik inir. He was ouiei, not talkative hnd nothing to say except about thu business hu eamejon gut wiiaihe wanU'ti whi n l was disengaged p lid lor what uegoi liKe a treiitleman, ami uonorallv leliied witli au ordinary "good-day," or some similar civility. And jet, ml mtvo said, ho began to altraet my atteniion nt last, and I began to wonder why, Was it because ho was so quiet, reserved and gentlemanly, and did not purcltaso whiskey like the rest and occasionally get excited and bolster ous 7 or was it because there was asontu- thiiiLrnbout him I could not readily fath oni t At all events, lie began to inteiest mo in some wayi nml tho very lacl, per haps, that I o dild uoi loll how or whv, led mo into a closer scrutiny, a deeper study, ot tho man. Atlor Hits i prolonged, nis visits as much ns I could without causing liim lo invo him credit lor ueing a uiiiikoi'- iierhaps a practical and sullish dreamer, I if I may use a jiaradoxical term that best expresses my idea. I One dav, 1 scarcely know how, I touched upon the general superstitions of mankind, and to my surprise I saw that at last ho was interested. His eyu changed expression, and brightened, and emitted a strango and peculiar gleam ; and my attention being thus directed to his eye, I n-)v betlio iglit mo tint I had never seen ouo exactly like il one capa ble of being po apparently open down to thu soul while concealieg so much, It was off its guard now the loor was really open down to the ioul of tho man au'd 1 looked in at thatdoor,tliat open ing, and saw that thn soul of that man was daika one? A nameless fear catno over me a suange inriii passeo. inrougii me, like an electric shock I felt au in lernal shudder of dread. No wonder I had not been nblo to read him before ; he man had been wearing an impene- rable mask. I now had tho key to the mystery and to him, and I used it. lie was interest ed in superstitions bad men always are because thev carry a hell of wild Ian cits witli them. Thus it was with this man. as I could see bv his eve, and I could make his fancies work upon him I told him stories of sorcery, witchcraft and magic of ghosts, hobgoblins and nevus tin no oecame paio wun icar, breathed with compressed lips, and trembled in spito of his great nerve and will. It fjoud men, as I have said, are some times superstitions, why, you ask, ditl I think this man bad for being supersti tious also? First, I answer, Incaii.S'i I had accidentally thrown him off his gitaid and read his soul ; and secondly, because lie was not naturally nervous and credu lous. Fear only had made liim so; and, in one of his iron nature, fear could only arise from the self convicted knowledge of a past wicked deed. Thu man was oven then a criminal. lut let mo hnstcn to the ih iioue ment. It chanced that no other person was present when tho conversation occurred about tho supeistitious fancies of men, and as soon as we were interrupted by tho entrance of another customer my dark visitor left somewhat abruptly. After lliat ho did not come as often as before, and never seemed much at ease, ami never renewed the conversation that had so agitated him, and never, in fact, entered into any otlier than ho could possibly avoid. I kept my thoughts to myself, but ma lo some casual inquiries about him, and learned that he had been so fortunate as to secure a capital ''lead," from whiult,-with his paitner, another young man, lie was taking out gold in quantities that promised lo enrich both, and that both had the good will and es teem of all who knew thein. One dark night, about three or font weeks after this, I was startled from my sleep by wild, prolonged shrieks, and ciies of: "Murder! murder! help! help!" I jumped up, s.-ized my revolvers, and darted out iulo iho open air. Tho cries and screams still continued, coining from a point on the bend of the river about a hundred rods below. In a minute I was joined by live others, all well armed, and together wo ran as hard as wo could to tho plaeo from which the alarm proceeded. When wo arrived there, at least thiily men were collected in and around the tent of tho dark man I have been de scribing, and ho himself it was who had given the alarm. His paitner and com panion had been murdered and lobbed, and ho himseli had been slightly cut across tho face and gashed on the loft arm, and ho was all excitement, lumen ting his dearest triend, and avowing vengeance, against the assassin. It was some time befo.o we could get at tho par ticulars ; and then wo learned that both had been sleeping side by side, when in unknown robber had crawled under the canvas, stabbed one the heait, ami had taken a largo bagof gold from under his head. With this ho wasesoipini; when tho pieseni narrator awoku and heized him, and received tho wounds which had compelled liim to relinquisl his hold. Li'Mits were brought ; and there, suro enough was the bloody con lirinatiou of all that had been related. I shall not attempt to portray tho in tense excitement, tho wild rago and cmi stornation, which this daring murder oe casioned. Everyman felt that, if the assassin escaped without his just punish inent, there would no longer bo security ior any one in our hitherto peaceful and 1 met valley.and solemn oaths wero taken to hang thu wretch if found, upon tho nearest tree. A largo reward was otter ed for his detection, anil every gambler that had over been seen about thero was nioro or less suspected; and I buliovo that had anv man been arrested on the I ol lowing day, ho would have been hun first and tried afterward. I said less than any, for I had my own suspicions, anil I contrived my plot in sjcret, making confident of no one. 1'liu murdered young man was as tie cently buried as tho surrounding circuin staucis would permit ; and then his com paulon, my superstitious liiend, grew moody Willi gneJ, retuseil to work In "lead ' anv more, and proposed sellinj olV his rocker and tools and quitting tho country altogether. 1 think ho would havo gono at once, only that I told him it would not look well to leave without an effort todiscoverthomurderer.as somu people might bo nialioious enough to say no kiiuw sumetiiing oi tuo niatier ami s gei mm iiuo iroiiuio. no iiirned verv pale and declared that ho would stnv year if by that means ho could discovei tho assassin ot lus dear, dear friend On tho second afternoon following tho tragedy, almost every individual lu thu vicinity, tho friend of tho murdered man among tho rest, assembled at my stoic at my particular request. I had told them I had something to communicato con corning tho foul tleod, nml tlisiiJI thought It no unlikely I might give them hoiiio clue lo tho assassin, i nen nil had collected, ami airangei tiieiiiseives, in it semi-circle uciore my place his hand upon tho body of tho man he had secretly slain, the wounds would bleed afresh. "And now, gentlemen," I continued, "I hold in my hand as suro a test as any 1 have named. I Ins simple egg, so (air lo tho view, contains the murderer's se cret.

Wo do not know each other s se crets tho murderer of tho young man wo buiied yesterday may bo among us t but only tho guilty need fear the trial tho innocent will surely pass the ordeal unharmed. As I said this, I fixed my gaze upon my dark visitor, my suspected man. I ne'ver saw a nioro wretched and ghastly countenance, nor a greater struggle in any living being t keep a calm and un moved exterior. Tho egg began its round. Some took it gravely, somu lightly, some turned slightly pale, and some laughed outright. Hut on it went, and eamo never and nearer to tuo man for whom was inten ded.

Ho made one despaiiiiig effort to be calm, gulped his breath like one choking, and seized e latal egg with trembling hands. The next moment it was crushed to alonis,aiid his hands were wet and stain ed as if with human gore. wild yell burst from tho crovd. desuairitigshriok came from thelips of tlio guilty wretch ; and failing rather than sinking, down upon his knees, ho cried out: "God of mercy, forgive mo !

There was another wild veil, or rather howl, of fury a rush like wolves upon their prey and tlio poor wretch was seized, almost torn limb from limb, and dragged furiously away. In less than ten minutes lrom his con fession he was dangling from a neigh boring tieo swinging by his neck. bo died the murderer, whoso name 1 have suppressed because ho had respec table friends who are still living. I will only add, that, believing hun to be guilty, I had previously prepared tho egg, putmig red coloring matter into it, expecting to seo him crush it through his siiperstititious tears ol a supernatural liscovery.

Wo will, first of all, give an account of Noyes, tho enthusiast, wlioso strong individuality was tho sourco and the tountaiti ot ltto to 1'erlectionisni, by which general nanio tho principles of tho Oneida Community are known. John Humphrey Noyes was born nt Hrattleboro, Vt., m the year 1811. His parents were in good circumstances, and rehned people, and their son early gave promise ot tho capacity lor a studious and devout life. After receiving his do gree at Dartmouth oollege, young Noyes read law for a while, but tho bent of his mind was towards theology and tho lifo of a foreign missionary. Accordingly ho relinquished the law and began tho study of theology at Andover, from whenco ho removed to Yalo. At New Haven, Conn., he encountered n rovivalistic teacher, who found in him a disciple apt to fanaticism and with tho originality and the strength of will to give it a new direction and to make it aggressive and ot moment in that most wonderful chapter of history which tells tho varied and complex talo of tho struggle of universal human nature to bo right with God. Mr. Noves was about twenty-three vears of ago when, as ho expressed it, lie "landed in a new exper ience and now views of the way of sal vation, which took the name of perfect ionism." This experience was succeeded bv his removal to Putney, Vt., where his father then resided, and was in busi ness as a banker. Thero ho preached and wrote and published for several years, and in 18:13, when twenty-seven old, married Harriet A. Ilolton, a young lady of good family, who had been pre viously influenced to adopt his peculiarly religious views. It is by no meaii3 re markable that tho young teacher's prin ciples were adopted but slowly. In 1S47 his congregation numbered only about 10 persons Ho was in correspondence, however, with people far and near, who recognized in him their leader. Two years before this date, Noves' views of tile relations of the sexes had been pub lislied, and, in 1810, lie was at the head of a small community at Putney, from whence local persecution drove him in 1818 to settle witli a number of followers at Oneida, Madison county, N. Y. The place of settlement was very uninviting, consisting ot torty acres ot land, an tin painted frame house, an old Indian hut and an Indian saw-mill. This hole! move preceded the practical adoption of com lnunism by a number of people of llrook- lyn, N. Y. Communities under Noyes' direction were also begun at Wallingford comprising nn elaborate system of com mittco work, mutual co-oporatiou and criticism destined to answer both for tho perfection of labor undertaken and oi nnrflnnnl rrlmr.ip.tnr. Tho Hiblo was re garded ns "tho text-book of tho Spirit of Truth.' Go.l and good spirits wero behoved to bo in constnnt communication with the faithful. Prayer was restricted to tlio individual and silent aspiration towards the Dicty, nnd to tho child-liko repre sentation of wants which faith behoved would bo granted without limitation or obstruction from tho operation of natu ral laws or oilier causes. There- was no preaching and the administration of tho sacraments and tho obligation of tho the Sabbath wero not observed. No member of tlio community had temporal interest in nny way separable from those of his brethren and sisters. Tho com munistic idea was thoroughly carried out,cxtending. as wo have seen, to tho relations of flic sexes. Tlint such an organization should havo been originated and should have nour ished to t.ie elcatli ot tuo singular man who founded it is a remaiknblc instanco of tho supremacy which a man of deep convictions and strong will can acquire. With tho death of Noyes a few years ago the mainstay of tho organization do- parted, i erieeiioiiistii, us hi; wujjm died witli its first and last great teacher. Dob lianlctto on hob Ingcrsoll.

"And I believe," continued Mr. Burdctte, seriously, whilo his audience was hushed, "I believe Colonel Ingcrsoll's position is sound." Thero was a moment' hesitation, and all the tittering stopped. "I know," contin ued the Bpcakcr, "it isn t tuo thing lo say in this hall and to this audience ; but I havo said it, and I won't go back on anything I havo said.

In a few vears tho original Oneida settlement had absorbed all thu rest excepting that of Wallin ford, which from 18.17 to tlio end of Joyes dnys continued as a branch and portion of that in which the prophet himself resided, tho property of both being united.

The work of tearing away tlio structure ha been pushed forward as rapidly as cir cumstances would permit, a force of from thirty to forty workmen being con stantly employed. The iron girders, rafters, trusses and supports have been shipped to live different rolling-mill firms in Pittsburg, a track having been laid through the entire length of tho building by tho Pennsylvania Hailroad Company to facilitate loading. Tho greater part of tlio woodwork has also n sent to 1 lttsburg, whero it will uo used in tho construction of mills and iron works.
