Last Moments of Thaddeus 'Stevens.
About nine o'clock two colored clergy
-men, the Rev. Mr. Hall and the Rev. Mr.
Reed, both of the Israel Methodist Church,
arrived, and requested permission to see
Mr. Stevens and pray with him. It is a
curious coincidence one of them stood by
the bedside of John Quincy Adams, and
prayed with him in his last illness. Mr.
Stevens was asked whether they shduldr.be
admitted. He replied (and these were prob
ably the last connected words that he utter ,
ed): "Certainly, certainly." They entered
the room. He turned on his side and reach-
ed his hand to one of them. A hymn was
sung and a few prayers were offered ; after
which they departed, at about 8 o'clock. At
about 9 o'clock Dr. Young again called, and
bad a brief interview with his patient. The
Doctor pronounced him dying, and so told
him. r. Stevens looked at hirn and nodded
his head. but made no reply.
Dr, Young informed the household that
his patient would in all probability die be
fore morning. Sisters Loretta and Gene
vieve, of Providence Hospital, entered the
room at about 10 o'clock., It was now evi
dent that death was not far distant. Mr.
Stevens became weaker and weaker. The
Sisters of Charity knelt by the bed and.be
gan to pray. Mr. Stevens reached his hand
.to'one twin and she held it several min
utes. After they had finished praying, Mr.
Stevens took more ice, and small pieces
were put in his mouth once or twice after
that. - Thaddeus Stevens. Jr.. Simon. Ste
vens, Mrs. 'Smith, the Sisters of Charity,
31r.,4, Scott Patterson, of the Interior De
partment, and the servants of the house,
were in the room at the time. The Sisters
of Charity had learned through some chan
nel thit Mr- Stevens had never been bap
tised, and requested his permission to per
form the ceremony. He said that he had no
objections, :and 'one of the sister's took a
glass of, water, and pouring it on his ,head,
pronounced the words "I baptize thee,
Thaddeus Stevens,in the name'of the Father,
and Of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost,
Mr. Stevens expired precisely at twelve
o'clock, about ten minutes after his baptism.
He opened his eyes once or twice, and then
eloßd 'them for ever. The persons above
mentioned were the only ones present - at the
death-scene. The Sisters of Charity imme
diately began to recite the prayers for the
dead, which were soon finished. Hin death
was so quiet that thoie in the room, especiaLy
the women, 'could not believe that he' was
really dead ; but it was so. His features
remain natural, and his face *ears the same
eahn; earnest expression which was stamped
on it in life. The intelligende was speedily
telegraphed all over the country.— Wash.

Bursting of a Glacier.
A correspondent of the London papers
gives the following account of a smgular
occurrence at Chamounix, Savoy, on July,
23: "At ten minutes to five a dark cloud
oveishadowed the valley of Chtunounix, a
peal of thunder - was heard, and then a con
tinuous roar that awakened every soul in
the village, caused every ,eye tb strain itself
in the direction of the Aiguille Blaitiere.
At this moment no sign could be seen of the
cause of so much commotion. Presently a
puff of smoke, as it so appeared on the crest
of the mountain rhat supports the Clacier
des Pelerins. raised the cry that the glacier
hid burst, bringing with it part of the ma-I
rain that had kept it within bounds.
"The peasants of the valley were rushing
to and fro, driving the cattle into safe qua*
ters, and then all eyes were watching one
of the most glorious and overwhelming
sights the visitors to Chamonnix could de:
sire to see. My pen is too weak to describe
the commotion this mighty avalanche cre
ated, every moment adding fnelto its coarse,
tossing up clouds of spray; bringing with it
pine trees, huge boulders, rude bridges, and
deserted chalets i until it reached the pretty
Casoade dtiDard, when the noise was most
deafening. The falling masses here, filling
the gully and gaining'speed at every exer
tion, left the course which the stream,
usually takes, and tearing down ping trees
opened an immense track and overflowed
the meadows and gardens of the Hotel
Royal, destroying whole fields of barley and
potatoes, and, after spending its fury for
twenty minutes on meadow and peasant
land, this muddy mass formed itself into a
large lake, which will remain some time to
be regarded by tourists as an event which
is very rare in the valley of the Cha
Safeide of a Brilliant Frenchman.

Much interest is being manifested among
the old residents in regard to the recent sal
cige of •Mr. A. Caussaur. For more than
twenty years he his been a resident of New
Orleans, and during the most of that period
has occupied a prominent place in society.
Lately he bad fallen into evil courses and
great poverty, but maintained his footing in
good society. He was the son of a Colonel
of Cuirassiers in the armies of Napoleon 1.,
and was born in the Island of Martinique,
during a mission ofhis father to that colony,
but he was raised in Yrance, and received
an education of the highest order. -He has
always been recognized as a man of culture

granulating was regarded as the most skill

employed in the French Consul's office at
the time of the seizure of the $BOO,OOO by
Gen. Butler, belonging to. the Citizen's
Bank, but in consequence of some transac
tions growing out of that event he has lost
his estate, and the favor of his friends was
withdrawn. He sank into poverty, but

was the refusal of bis landlord to extend

A correspondent of the Boston Travei/ei
gives. extracts from a letter written by
Daniel Webster to his son Edward, about
the time. the latter commenced' his studies at
Phillips' Exeter Academy, which school he
himself at one time attended:
WASHINGTON, June 23, 1834.
MT DEAR B oN:—Fletcher wrote me from
_Exeter the next day after your arrival, and
informed me that you had been so fortunate
as to be received at Col. Chadwick's, and
was . commencing your studies. You are at
a most important period of life, my dear
son, soon growing up to be a young man,
and a boy no longer, and I feel great anxie
ty for your success. I beseech you to be
attentive to all
_your duties, and to fulfill
every obligation with cheerfulness and
Punctuality. Above all, remember your
moral and religious concerns. Be constant
at church and prayer and every appointment
for worship. There can be no solid chime.
ter and no true happiness which are not
founded on a sense of religious duty. Avoid
all evil coinpany, and every temptation,
and consider that you have now left your
father's house and- gone forth to improve
your own character!, and prepare your mind
for the part you are to actin life. - All that
can be done for you by others will amount
to nothing, unless you do much for yourself.
Cherish all the good counsel which your
dear mother used to give you, and let those
of 'us who are yet 'alive have the pleasure of
seeing you come forward as one who gives
promise of virtue, usefulness and distinc
tion. 'I fervently commend you to the
blessings of our Heavenly father.
Your affectionate lather,
Sherman and the, Mormons.
Lieutenant General Sherman is reported
as characterizing the Mormons as a set of
religious. fanatics. He asserts that what
they have accomplished in Utah, settling in
the most wretched of deserts, on the shores
of a salt lake, In the distant interior of a
vast and almost trackless continent—and
there, by the sheer forcd of will, industry,
sagacity, temperance, admirable regulation
and indomitable perseverence making a
garden of the desert and fertile fields of the
wilderness—could have been achieved by
no other earthly motive power but religious
fanaticism. Then, the fact that they were
led to use this tremendous force in creating
a region of fertility in the precise spot
where the advancing course of. Christianity
and civilization would need it, and is now
about to benefit by it, he cannot help re
garding as a direct act of Divine Provi-
dence, bring His good out of man's evil do
ings. This being granted, it seems to him
the best thing to do with the Mormons is
to treat them like other people—not encour
aging their institutions by admitting Utah
as a State, but governing their Territory
and ignoring their peculiarities. Persecu
tions always intensifies fanaticisms. Why
should this be an exception? Let them
alone; push on the Pacific Railroad; fill their
Territory with active young Gentiles, and
poligamy with die a natural death, while
their civil theocracy will -be overwhelmed
and outvoted by the swarming incomers.
THE sheds built by the Pacific_ Railroad
to protect their track from the deep snrS
of the Sierra Nevada mountains - were
crushed by the weight of snow that fell
upon them last winter and it was ieported
that some other method of protection would
-have to be devised. This plan, however,
has not be en abandoned. The company, it
is stated, are now engaged in erecting sheds
over the cuttings and exposed poirta. They
are of heavy timber framework, with
pointed gable roofs, and look as if they
could withstand almost any pressure of
snow. Nearly 40 miles of track .1411 have
to be thus covered and the quantity of dm
beirequired will be. enormous. Not less
than 22 sawmills, most of them worked by
steam, are run night and day,
nearly 2000 men, and yet they do not work
up to the needs of the company. In a few
weeks 28 mills will be running. It is estl l
mated that it will require no less than 800,-
000 feet of lumber to construct a mile - of
sheds. So great is the demand that the
forests on both sides of the track are being
rapidly cut down.
