she cried.. Raymond was the trouble

" I had thought something Want
ing in Deamoor. Tower, and. this
questiOn reminded me what it was.
It ought to be 'haunted ; it was _ab
surd that it should not be haunted;
and I at once demanded her ghost of
Miss Bantyeid She told- me, that
there. certainly was the usual spirit
mai legend connected with the old
place. A Jesuit conspirator, priest '
and soldiei had beer, taken and kill
ed after a desperate resistance in_my
bedroom ; and witne sees credible brp
on other matters, had declared that
they Lad seen his specter, enveloped
in a cloak, pistol in hand, in the fatal
chamber, and bad been duly frighten
ed into temporary insanity.
" I suggested that the witness bad
taken too much liquer when they
saw the-ghost, and that the after-ill
neis might be delirium tremens. Mr.
Bantyen smiled politely, and said it
was possible ; but though be, con
iidered that the Jesuit had, been laid'
for several years, ,probably by, get
ting out of •purgatoty, be evidently
had a latent suspicion that he really
had haunted the place at one time:
. "My boat had procured me some
partridge-shooting at a few miles die
lance, so I stopped on, though the
tower was no very agreeable red
dence now. Fletcher was an odious
snob, 'and- Mr. ,Bantyen, instead of
kicking him' out of the house, was
so weak as to let him bully;him.
"I soon saw that the fellow was
smitten with his pretty cousin, and
hated me worse than ever for flirting
with her, which, of course, one was
bound to do a little ; and as she evi
dently disliked.and feared him, and
was glad to talk to me, in order to
avoid him, I.deresay there was a lit-,
tle, apparent cease for his jealousy.

stranger no di übt interfered with,

Tug doe or Oen Eurrn:—Among
the astounding discoveries of modern
science, is that of the immense peri
ode that have passed in the gradual
_formation of the earth. So vast were
the cycles of the time preceding
even the appearance of man on-the
surf ace of our globe, that our owe
period seems as yesterday when com
pared with the epochs that have gone
before it. Had we only the evidence
of the deposits of rocks heaped upon
each other in- 'regular strata by the
slow accumulation of materials, they
alone would convince us of the long
and slow maturing of God's 'works
on earth ; but when we add to these
the successive populations of whose
life this world has been the theatre,
-and whose remains are bidden in the
rocks into which the mud, or said,or
soil of whatever kind, on which they
lived, has hardened in the course of
time—or thit enormous chains - of
mountains whose upheaval divided
these pitriodS of quiet accumulation
by great convulsions--m the changes
of different nature in the configura
tion of oar globe, as' the sinking of
lands beneath the ocean, or, the grad
ual rising of continents and islands
above—or the slow growth, of coral
reefs, those wonderful sea-walls raja
ed by the little ocean architects,
whose own bodies- furnish both• the
building stones and. the cement that
binds them together,' and who have
worked so busily during the long
centuries that there are extensive
counties, mountain ehains,
and long lines of Coast, consisting
solely of their remainit--or the count
less foresta that have grown up;
flourished, and decayed, fill the
storehouses of coal that feed the fires
of the human xace—if we consider
all these records. of, the put, the in
tellect fails to grasp a Chronology of
which our experience furnishes no

HOW r GOT INTO ZIE BALL or
gort persons are aware that the
cathedral church of . St. Peter's, in
Rome, is =the grandest edifice _for
'Christian worship in the. world ; that
it is presided over by the Pope him
self, who resides in a vast pile ad
joioittg the Vatican, within which
are collected treasures of art of oen
fairies. But: as some of my young
readers - may not be "familiar with f3t:
Peter's, I will ,elate a few facts con
cerning it their information.
Three hundred and fifty years were
ispent in building this structure; ex
tending through the reigns of no less
than forty-three Popes. • It .covers an
area of nearly six acres, - and it cost
fifty millions of dollars. Tne anneal
amount expended in keeping it byre
pair is upward of forty thousand
dollars 1. ' '
It 2 six hundred and thirteen . ,lnd
a half feet long inside the walls, four
hundred and forty-six and a half feet
wide, and four .hundred and forty
eight feet high from the pavement to
the top of the cross. Beneath ;the
.pavementis the crypt, ea_ that -the
actual height from the foundation to
the top of.the cross is four briadred
and eighty feet, making it by nearly
fifty feet the loftiest dome in the
world. -The diameter of the dome: is
a hundred and ninety-five and a half
tees, - and the height of the facade or
vestibule, from the top of which the
Pope gives his benediction on feast
days, is one hundred and forty-eight
and a half feet long.
Haying provided myself with the
necessary order from the director or
janitor of St. Peter's, I readily ob-,
tained admission to the hall- leading
to the stairway. The elaborate iron
fretwork door locked and tarred and
guarded by an ofticial,fis only open
ed to visitors presenting orders in
due form, and then only from eight
to twelve o'clock ; and no person is
allowed to remain after one o'clock.
Tile first one hundred and eighty
five feet, leading from the floor to the
top of the vestibule, has a very easy
ascent, being a gently inclined plane,
without steps, about' six feet wide,
and floored with brick. From a door
at the head of the incline the visitor
emerges at the top of the vestibule,
which, paved with flags, is four hun
dred and sixty-eight feet long by
tiny feet wide, fcrming a magnificent
promenade. Up to this point I could
have ridden on horsebaCk, the ascent
being so gradual. I began to con
gratulate myself on the trifling effort
required to gain such a magnificent
view, but soon found that I bad only
got over the easiest part of my task.
Grossing over the roof of the- nave,
and entering a small door, I next
commenced to climb the drum which
sustains the dome. • The atone stair
way runs around between the outer
and inner shells of the dram and
'dome. It is said that the idea of
making it double originated with
Michael Angelo, the great sculptor,
painter and architect, who died An
his eighly-n;nth year (1563), on the
completiim of the drum; and' just as
the dome was commenced. He de
eared that be would raise the "Pan
theon the air," but never lived to
Bee the project realized. •
Up, up, up what appears to be an
interminable circular stairway, With
steps well worn by previous sight
seers, between two bare walls.--
Finally,an opening presents itself,
leading the inner gtillery, running
around the dome high over the tomb
of St. Peter. In making the circuit
at this dizzy height, I looked "down
upon the people below. It must
-have been from some , such position
that the author of " Gulliver's Tray
eta" conceived the 'idea of the Lilli
putians, for what else Bid human be
ings"look like from-this elevation,
unless dwarfs moving to and fro
•Looking up into the top of the
dome from this gallery, the frescoes,
which, from the paVement below, ap
pear so elaborately finished, are dis
covered to be in reality executed in
a coarse but vigorous etzle, intended
to produce the proper 'effect when
viewed from a distance.
Leaving the second or higher gal
lery, 1 commenced to climb the donie;
bat this was by no means a pleasant
undertaking, it being concave on the
inside of the outer wall, and, convex
on the. outside Of the inner wall ; the
higher' I ascended, the more I had to
incline to the 'right hand, and on - the
upper part had to support myself
with my bands on , the right- hand
wall, to prevent myself from falling .
sideways. ' Around and around, un
til dizzy, by-and-by I cline - to an
opening in the inner wall of - the
dome, protected by two horizontal
iron bars. Looking down from this
height, the peoßle seemed • almoet
Like- ants, creeping .from place to

position became more and more un
pleasant, and I was not sorry when
reached the - lantern, which is a cir
cular room, immediately over the
centre of the dome, at a height of
nearly five hundred feet; with noth
ing but the floor between my feet
and Os 'pavement below, a rather

The lantern i s' about - eighteen feet

bench running nearly around it, the

tell the truth, I was more occupied„

of the ball I had worked so herd to

iron bars, and capable of_ holding
sixteen persons. The most singulu .
thing about it is the reverberation of
sound, which is something astonish
ing. The lowest tone is magnified

Having ascended the: ball and

as I had only to lower myaelf : fiow

One of - the grandest sights in .

Livid of St. Peter, when six thousand
eight hundred lanterns and iron
pane ' are lighted as if by .
Thitsis accomplished by an - army of
men while the clock -is -,lMxlritrg the
hoar of nine. '
When on the gallery I had an op
portunity of seeing the manner in
which the dome is lighted, the most
difficult part of the illumination,
many lives. having been lost in the
opratiou. Arena the roof of the
dome are fligi rows of iron pens, at
regular intervals from top to bottom,
and immediately between the rows
of pans are alight projections of Iron,
serving as steps. The men, with
ropes securely fastened around their
waists at one end, and sawed at
the other to the baloon), have - each
a lighted torch '.hand, com
mence to descend, at th e first stroke
of nine, touching the wicks floating
in the pans, and saturated with tar.
pentine, so as to light - on theinstant.
