receive that sum from Parisians alone,
and that afterwards the pane may be re

the provinces. This event has made more
sensation than any other that has occur
red in Paris since New Year's day. The
excitement is on the increase. Crowds,too

the pen of a Mr. Silas S. Steel, on what
he terms the 'Bnrning Mountain' at Coal
Castle, in this State. The existence of a
burning mountain in our own State, we
must confess, is something quite new to
us. Yet the writer states that this stu
pendous mountain-bed of burning 'au-

years, glaring and smoking through the
hot and cavernous crevices', formed by its
outward combustion, and casting forth its
coulds of vapor and sulphurous lava.
This mountain embraces a portion of
Broad 3Iountain, at Coal Castle, a small
mining settlement about five miles north
