The .-alt rock within this square mile

and til'ty millions of tons of plaster within
the same space, worth with the ground a
kout one dollar per ton, making a total of
eight hundred and lifty million dollars
New York property is valued at seven
hundred and fifty million dollars.
In another place we estimated the value
of this mineral deposit at only twonty'eight
hundred million hush, salt, without ref
erence to the plaster or the land improve
ments. Put the present one we make ns
a hoa.-t against any thing that tho world
can produce, and, of course, have not al

tions. The oho sipiaro mile, idhidod lo a-
hove contains uhout all tho salt, hut not
one tenth iiart of the l.laster. The estate
contains uhout ten thousand acres.
We migh also choose a square railo on
tho iron mountains of Alleghany County,
which, when properly developed, would
he worth more than ull the farms in Vir
ginia: or we might choose a square mile
f.f the lead property at the Old 'Yityne
Lead Mines, and, only estimating it ac
cording to the yield up to the present

and our ligures w ould run into millions.
The Havana I'rin:n notices a rcmarka-
hie incident as one of the results of the
shock from the explosion ; no less than
the restoration to reason of u lady of that
r'!.v wnf n!, oiitiroly lost her min l.some
six moths ngo, from a severe and protract
ed spell of sickness. During the whole of
that period she did not recognize any one,
not even her parerts nnd other near rela
tives. When the explosion took place
she. was instantly thrown into violent pa
roxysms, which the family considered ns
an indication of tho speedy approach of
death. The paroxysms gradually suhsided
and all were rejoiced to find her situation
Unite the reverso of what was expected :
her :eason was entirely restored! This
case presents an interesting iiuc.stion for
our medical philosophers.
CjJ"A lady once conulled Dictor
John-oil on the degree of turpitude to he
at. ached to her son's rohhing an orchard.
'Madame," said Johnson, "it nil depends
upon the weight of the hny. I rotneniLcr

a dozen orchards with impunity; hut the

sunshine falling upon the heart. He is
happy and the cares of life are forgotten.
A sweet temper has a soolhing intlllelice
over the iniiids of the whole family. When
it is found in the wife mid mother, you
ohserve kindness mid love predominating
over the natunl feeliiigs of a had heart.
Smiles, kind words and looks character
ize the children, und peace ant! love dwel

class of life retains all its hower.
A MELANCHOLY r.ANtjUI'.T.
Tho t'ollowing touching" tmd tugjji .stive
incident, is sadly illustrative)!' the uncer
tainty of life, or rather'the eertainty of
death, and of: Is inexorahle disregard of
all the ties w hich hind frail mortality to
an earthly existence.
