The Erie Railway Dliaster.
A. letter to a New York journal thus de
scribes the scene of this latest and most
. It will be remembered by those who have
- traveled over, the Erie Railroad that from
the point at Port Jervis, where it first strikes
the lDebiWare, for over twenty-fivemiles in
greater part;•the pathway for the train has
been hewn out of the precipitous rock
which flanks the river on that side. In
many places there is but a single track, the
cars as-they - pass along seem suspended in
air, as their outer edges hang over thq rocks
- which rise from the river's brink !some,
times to a height of 150 feet to the car
plateau, and, where far above them-,tower
- the rugged summits bleak and barren but
for the few straggling pines that crown
them. This pathway for the steam engine
. scooped out of the rock follows the winding
of the river, making in a hundred places
sharp and always dangerous curves, At
Carr's Rock, one of these curves, and proba
bly one of the worst on the whole line,
commences for the cars coming toward Now
York. Here the train describes almost a
semi-circle while traversing about 1,500
feet. The height of the embankment, mid
" - way in this curve, is 60 feet, sloping rapidly
to a plateau underneath, about 150 feet dis
tant, itself-high above the river's level. At
this point, before the construction of the
road, there was a deep gorge. This was
bridged over to allow the winter torrents
- from the hills to escape in this way and save
the track from inundation. This bridge, or
culvert as it is called by the railroad men,
is sustained by great heavy stone buttresses
. --one on either side the creek, -Which is
perhaps_about 20 feet in width.
' On reaching the nearest end of this curve,-
about 700 feet on this side of the bridge, the
• scene of the affair spread itself before me.
• Down in the gorge at the foot of the em
bankment lay the wreck, yet uncotisiimed
by fire, of the four cars which fell over. On
either side of the torrent ivhich *rushed
through the bridge, lay shapeless piles of
wagon tires, wheels, twisted iron -work,
panels of carriages, stoves, the marble slabs
of the wash-stands; brass fittings from the
wood-work of the cars, broken mirrors and
Shreds 'of half-bunied clothing still smoking
slOwly as the fire fought with the 'miserable
rain-drizzle falling upon them at the time.
On neither side of the creek were there any
evidences of human remains. Of the car
which had been consumed, there was 'no
longer ruin enough left to hide a single
blackened bone. The other three had been
'torn to pieces in the liberation of the wound
' ed and afterward it splicers were set on fire
andsonsumed—why, is a something for con
jecture, Leaving this sickening scene, and
ascending the bluff on fiends and knees, we
again reached the track above, and went to
the other extreme end of the curve, where
still lay the bioken rail,and where the ill-fated
cars first began their horrible dance of
death. . . -
The same letter adds : "Although no in
habitant of Port Jervis is among the dead
or Nourided, this fearful; calamity .has
awakened the most intense feeling among
' the people, and business may-be said to be
entirely suspended. Not a few of these
discuss the management of the road, and
express their astonishment that this thing
did not occur long since. They are, not
slow either to give direction to their cen
- sure. They'say that the condition of this
Delaware division of the line has long been
known as dangerous in the extreme; that
new rails have been applied for again and
again, and that those who knew of their
_necessity, and whose duty it was to make
these applications, were unable to obtain
them; that the worst 'description of iron
was supplied when supplied at, all, and that
when remonstrance was made to this, and a
better quality of-rail asked for, the reply
was, "they cost too much." Talking to an
employd of the line at the door of the hotel,
last night, about the condition of the track,
not then having seen it myself, I said to
him: :"Are there any other bad rails at that
dangerous place that you saw .9" I under
stood him to say in reply, "Four," and re
peated the word after him, when he said,
excitedly: "Four ! my, God no, Sir, but
four hundred !"
The recent avalanches of Sierra aid -
Placer counties remind the travelers• on the
coast of California tliat our State does not
belong to the clime of the sun. Though
snow is never seen in San Francisco, a dis
tance of two degrees brings us into a region
where the reign is perpetual. Along a line
of three hundred miles the. Sierra rises to a
height of more than seven thousand feet.
with only a few narrow passes, below that
level ; and at that elevation , snow lies
throughout the year in the ravines on the
northern slopes of the mountains.
The; condensation of moisture is greater,
as a general rule, on the sides of the highest
mountaihs. The greater the elevation on
the Siena Nevada, the -greater the rainfall,
until we Mich about - SIX tholl • nd feet, above
which point snow succeeds.
There are many places in the State where
rain is a comparative rarity, though snow
-falls ten or twelve feet deep in ave rage win
tai, and forty or fifty in se vere ones.
. La Porte, Howland Flat, Summit Lake and
all the higher peaks are in this class. Mall
-the towns named the snow is now higher
than the one-story houses, and the people
go from house to house either through tun,
.. nels, or they climb upon : staircases from
their houses to the top of the snow, and
travel on snow-shoes. The snow will lie
this year as it did last in the streets of How
land Flat, till the Ist of June, and just back
ofthe town on the hillside; it will lie two
'months loner Hilt in ' the narrow mama,

Our *lies and Daughters
How many husbands treat their wives
with constant and tender care for their hap
piness? How many who do not make it
unpleasant for their wives to ask for money?
How many who do not shrug their should
ders when a trip to the sea shore and moun
tain is mentioned? How many who do not
return from their business at night cross and
disagreeable? How many husbands who
spring to their feet whenever there is as op
portunity to save a step for the wife? HOW
many Who seek daily and hourly to add to
the happiness of the one whose happiness
they have declared to be id essential to their
own? How many - who'do not begrudge the
expense of servants, who think to; take
home the little appliances that can make a
housewife's work light, who', plan for re
creations and amusements, whc praise the
care and taste which make for them so at
tractive a home? How many husbands
could pass the test of interrogatories like
The fact is, six men out of ten treat their
wives most shamefully. Instead of that
tenderness for her which marked the first
burst 'of their interest, they are apt to be
sour, petulent and imperious. They make
little else than slaves of their wives. They
compel them to ask for money; they
feel that they must frown down every plan
tor pleasure, and, least of all, never think or
speak in praise of that which the wife has
done for their happiness.. The lives ofmost
husbands are of one long train of grumb
ling and fault finding. They are blind to'
the happiness orthC one whose life to them
is a never—failing joy and inspiration. In
many cases they are more courteous and
pleasant to the wives of their neighbors than
Husbands, try our plan for a little while
and see how it results. Go home and pack
up your trunks and take your wives and
daughters to the springs, to the mountains,
to the shore. What if you have to neglect
your business a little—yoll cannot afford
to neglect your 'wife. You pledged most
sacredly not to, and she looks to you . for
the fulfillment of your vows. Do not wait
to be entreated; suggest the thing yourself,
and so will the answering love be greiter.
And while you are making amends for neg
lect of your wife, follow 'up your good im
pulse by making a pleasant plan for your
daughters. So shall you have a happy
family and a happy home—and so will you
be more happy yourself.--IVezo York Even

(From the Boston Journal of Cherolstryd
'Take two sheets of pasteboard paper of
any convenient size—say three feet long by
two feet wide. Bring the ends together,
and glue or paste them tight, each sheet by
itself; and they will look like tWo pieces of
paper.stove-pipe. Cut thin, mind boards
exactly to fit in the ends of, these paper cyl
inders. Carefully glue or nail them tight.
Now you have two air-tight paper drums
with wooden headv. Take a pole of any
length you desire—three feet'or twelve feet
—let one drum be fastened to each end of
the pole. Now balance this pole with the
drums on each end, on nice pivots, in the
middle. Then - bore a gimlet through the
end of one drum, and you have a good far
mer's barometer, One 'lrian is air-tight; one
has a hole in it; so there will be mom or :ess
air in one drum than the're is in another, ac
cording as the surrounding . air is dense
or rarefied. Consequently, in dense or
heavy air, the tight drum rises, while the
one with the pinhole in it goes down. Cross
wise through the middle of the bar or pole,
should run a stick as large as one's finger, a
foot long, with wire gudgeons, on which
the instrument should vibrate or teeter. Let
the ends of the pole be slightly lower than
the middle that the whole do not make
somerset; smear all with glue or oil, so that
no air enter only in thepuncture mentioned.
Have something you can slide through the
bar, to keep it nearly level. Mark, if you
please, figures along the pole, to show how
far you have moved the balancing poise;
though for this•there is but little need. This
instrument may not be so perfect as a costly
barometer; but for all practical purposes it
is all one could ask. I have had one more
than a year. I look at it a dozen times a
day. They could be made and afforded for
fifty cents a piece. They could be made as
long as a barn, and placed on the loft, with'
an indicator, to show the distant mower
when to make his hay.
How Advertisers are Duped.
The business men in almost every com
munity, says the Buffalo Courier, hive ts
ken from them thousands of dollars annual
ly, by a class of men whose sole business is
to invent devices for special advertising,
and who give no adequate return for the
same. If the actual loss to the advertiser
lay in the amount raid for his advertise
ment extraordinary, it would not be so bad,
but when it induces in his mind the com
placent belief that he luis done all that' is
necessary to be done to inform the public
where his place of business is, and:what he
will sell for, the thing becomes in a greater
or less degree, disastrous to his business. Of
all the inventions which- have been made
known to the advertiser, the most
effective medium - whichto make
himself manifest to the• public is
the, daily newspaper. The 'same amount
of money thalis thrown away
. on bulletin
boards, frames, hotel registers, street rail
road cars , calenders, and all the other devices
of the enemy, would give the advertiser a
prominent "display" in the columns of a
newspaper, where he would be *cognized
every day in the year by one or fifty read
ers, till his name beeame as a household
word: The fact is, there are a great many
men who acknowledge the absolute necessi
ty'of advert , ising, who do not hesitate to at
tribute their success to, it, and yet do not
comprehend the philosophy of advertising,
and who, if_they gave the subject the same
thoughtful attention they do •—to other
branches of their business, might save, to
themselves a sum more than equal to any
.iletnand a newspaper might make upon
' A LOMBARD PAPER relates a curious in
cident that- lately occurred in Brescia. A
male child was put out to nurse iMmediate
ly after ita birth, , with a woman living at
some distance from the city. Three months
afterwards the parents called to see it. The
nurse produced a girl baby and insisted that
this was their child. By dint of threats she
