From the Johnstown Tribune.
"Pennsylvania has done nobly. Her
estimated majority of fifteen thousand
swells under the official count to thirty
thousand. The young, vigorous, and
progressive Northwest, with its almost
homogeneous population and immense
Republican majorities,cannot run away
from us. New York, once called the
Empire Stato,has thrown her vote away
and the South is no longer an imperial
power—net oven a balance of power in
the nation,
but Pennsylvania holds her
place, and her voice determines the fate
of policies and parties.
Thirty thousand majority ! What
shall wo do with it? Well, we ought
to keep it and we can. it is a groat
power, which will be ours for years to
come if we use it wisely, and we shall
not lose it unless by some false stop—
some retrograde movement, wo cease
to be the party of the people.
The election of Grant has opened • a
new fountain of office and honor in the
nation, and its pure streams will purge
away foul corruption in high places. No
individual or ring or clique brought him
forward, or nominated him, or elected
him, and he can make unbiased choice
of all officers within his appointing
power. He has been always noted
for his knowledge of men, and has nev
er failed to put the right man in the
right place. The country looks for
ward to an efficient arid honest ad
ministration, of national affairs. Pub

r.e 4 Vice President Colfax recently
said in a speech at Pittsburgh :
"•I do not think Wade Hampton will
make any more platforms for• the Dem
eeratic party. Ido not think Yallan
digham will,nominate any more Pres•
Monts. Ido not think Preston and
Forrest will nominato any more Vico
We rather think to the contrary. Is
it to be supposed that the Democracy
will throw overboard such mon as
Hampton, Vallandigham, Preston and
Forrest? Judging from their asser
tions since the election, the Democracy
do not blame these men fdr, their de:
feat, but rather Seymour and Blair.
They deem it better to blame their un
successful candidates than the men who
by their very prominence helped to
defeat them. Hampton, Preston and
Forrest have an influence upon the
Democracy of the South, and if the
Democracy of the North should ropu.
diate them, or fail to recognize. them
Or their friends in any future conven
tion, they would enlist the demoerbey
of the South against the ticket, and put
up their own men. The fact is, the
Democracy. of the North is under the
thumb of the Democracy of the South,

against Southern aristocracy and se

The Late Earthquake Throw& lip Islands
of Pure Qems from the Bed of the, Pa
To tbo editor of tho Saint Louis Timor
One of the most extraordinary stor
ice over read or written has since a
late hour last night been gaining
ground in certain quiet quarters of the
city. It is so marvelous that one could
scarcely believe it to be anything but
: of a
_madman's brain, if it
were not confirmed by scientific facts,
and by- a vast - number of the theories
of modern philosophy. It is difficult
to determine what amount of credibil
ity we should attach to' it, and it is
best tolet eVery'rnan who reads the
following paragraphs judge for himself.
It will be. remembered that the late
catastrophe hi South Aniorica (recurred
sitnultaneously with an extraordinary
eclipse of-the sun, which astronomers
affirm, has niieriecitrred before for two
thousand years and will not occur
again for two thousand years to come.
No event of equal magnitude to the
late earthquake in South America has
occurred since the days of Herculane
um and Pompeii; but the convulsion
which overwhelmed those two—cities
was nearly local (so far as is known),
and of scarcely any extent compared
to the lato catastrophe, which shook
the entire continent - of America, from
the river Sacramenio to Cape Horn,
and Which must; have been 'telt with' a
thousand times more terrific force out
in the wide Pacific. It must be borne
in mind that geologists affirm that the
crust of the earth in that quarter of
- globe is,much thinner than at oth
ers; and some of them oven go so far
as to say thlti the bed of the Pacific is
formed of a submerged continent. At
all events, the great majority of the
islands of the Pacific archipelago are
of volcanic formation, and navigators
have been known to discover islands
in these latitudes which they know'
from their provioui experience not to
have existed'sOnle years before. - It is
now, an established fact, that the entire
center of the earth is filled with, a boil
ing ocean of liquid fire, which horrible
nod enormous dresses is liable to the
same changes of ebb and flow as 'the
mighty mass of waters on the outside
crust of our globe. This horrible re
servoir has been described by Sir
Charles Lyele .and other profound
thinkers as the great furnace of na
ture, wherein are smelted all the met
als,—gold; silver, lead, iron, pie tin a,
Au.,—and which are afterward pushed
up to the sut:fae by the' volcanic ac
tion of the seething.ocean beneath. It
is here also ;that are , produced the
beautiful- diamonds and crystalized
stones, for it is now known that they
owe the forM and brilliancy they pos
sess simply to the fact that they have
been exposed to the high temperature
which exists in the center of the earth.
We could make diamonds out of char
coal, could we reach the proper de=
gree of heat; but that can, perhaps,
never be reached by any . artificial
means at the command of man. As
we said above the ocean of liquid fire
is subject to tidal motion,and it is to this
fact must bir 'attributed the fearful
events that , have desolated South
America. The; eclipse iii the East In
dies, where the sun and moon were in
direct conjunction, must have created
a`stronger tidal current than-has exis
ted two thousand years; and 'this cur
rent, rushing haek.withaceelerated ve
locity, shook, the crust of the earth in
the western homisphiare(just is a wave
of the ocean would shake the sides of
an old oaken vessel) and remitted up
to the surface the seathibg masses of
matter,whieh had been agitated-in its
besoM far ihouseiii4 of yeara: These
masses,. on coming.-in contact with
lower, tompinature instantly crystalli
zed just as water crystallizes into:, ice
in winter Lime.
The captain' of a vessel, trading be
tween San Francisco and Valparaiso,
describes whdt ho witnessed in the
Pacific ocean, but in what latitude he
keeps a secretlo"himSelf. This captain
has, or ratlter.had, a brother boarding
in a house on Nardi Fourth street, and
it is a letter which he wrote to his
brother that-has given occasion to the
rumors that are whispered about in
that quarter of the city. The- sub
, stance of the letter,- as it has reached
Us, is mainly as follows
• - When nearly half way on the voy
age, and at the time the earthquake
took place, a fearful phenom'enon•pre
' seated itself., The ocean became., con
vulsed to its highest depths, and a ter
rible wave was swept,-along so.

that, as the 'captain butnorously said,
ho thought it would have landed him
in the city of Quito. The seamen were
terribly frightened, but the vessel was
to rights again in less than ten min
utes. The affair was a mere joke
among the men, for they fancied it
was one of the high tidal waves which
, are common in the:pacifie. They con
tinued their v4yago, but towards
midnight were :Alarmed by an extra
ordinary light,which,, appeared in the
! heavens, and wai`lit;st noticed on the
larboard side, and.which the ignorant
5 and superstitious attributed to super
natural. causes. - The
_captain, who
seems to be an intelligent and 'cour
ageous man steered his vessel right in
the directirM of thd light, and jtuit be
' fore sunrise a sight of magnificence—
! such as no human eye has ever rested
on—met his gaze. It was no less than
a group of islandri formed of hugo
•ses.of solid" dianiond or every color,
and, in some places, of the purest Mil
lianey. 'The sailors fell into ecstasies,
; any ono man,, a half-breed• from the
Sandwich Islands,lost his senses so far
that he would have thrown himself
overboard 'if he had not been tied
I down. They sailed among the group
the entire day, and found it to consist,
I -on a rough calculation, at from 12 to
20 in number; but the exact number,
; or their relative size, there was no
time to ascertain. .They consist of a
large, white gint,rooks of crystallized
shape (some_ plasm nearly transpar
ent) which tise ton height Of about 150

formation; but some of the. smaller
islands aro nomposed nearly altogether

hue; but ono island, which he describes
as being almost seventy miles long by

p of u r
n ra s i without
to effect a landing an any of the group.
At length some of the men succeeded;
nna a
but the captain himself, satisfied with
what ho had soon, did not leave tho
The mon describe tho interior of the
island on which they landed as consis
ting almost entirely of mud, which is
gradually coagulating under the heat
of the sun. A curious thing was, that
the brilliants were seen in the muddy
quarters of the island, lying about like
huge bouldors,—the smallest ones they
saw being about 200 tons in weght ;
but there were numbers of others con
siderably larger. Of course there was
no water or vegetation to be seen.
The most curious effort the sight had
on the men, both those in the vessel as
well as those who; thfited ; the island,
was that the extraordinary brilliancy
sickened their stomach, and vomiting,
followed by a copious discharge from
the bowels, was the consequence. All
efforts to detach portions Qf the dia
mond rock proved abortive; and it was
out of question to attempt removing
any of the great. hrilliant boulders.
Thoj• made an attempt to detach por
tions of rock by means of a crowbar
and sledge, but it was so hard all of
forts.wero useless, and, though they
had powder enough on board, they
had no implements with which to drill
the holes for blasting. The captain
would have proceeded on his voyage
to Valparaiso; but the men mutinied
and obliged him to put back to Pana
ma. Ile afterward, with the consent
of the crew, ran the vessel on shore on
the northern coast of Columbia, and,
telegraphing to the owners that she
was lost, came on as far its Aspinwall,
from which•city, ho wrote to his broth
er in Se.. Louis. 110 desired his broth•
er to come along at once, and bring
with him the finest and best tempered
implements for blasting purposes, and
if possible, a quantity of nitro glycer
ine. The brother departed for New
York immediately, but, before going,
he communicated the secret to a con
fidential comrade, through whom the
news leaked out only as late as yes•
torday evening. lam told that it has
already reached the ears of a rich jew
eler in this city, who is about to start
an' expedition which ho proposes to
carry on himself: It is more than
probable that the crew of the aban
doned vessel have anticipated him;
and if' they were lucky enough to keep
their secret and fit out a small craft

jecture that the reason the diamond

from theihet that they were projected
