The JtecMa of Naples contains the
following account ol the lovs oi two ,
gentlemen in the crater of VoMivius,
who, with great temerity, Insisted
on being lowered down to the dark
cavern Immediately below the orifice
of the crater:
" A party formed to iwond .Mount
Vesuvius on Friday afternoon, in
the Cafe do Europe. Tho party con
sisted of two Americans, three Eng
lishmen nnd one Frenchman. On
Sunday Hight they took carriages
from the enfo for lteMnn, reaching
there nt 1 1 :30 p. in. I laving procur
ed horses, guides nnd other necesi
ries, they started for tho ascent, ono
Lulgi Oaroglo lending as cicerone,
and arrived nt tho bae of the upper
most cone, further than which horsce
do not go. The tourists then began
tho ascent over tho hillocks nnd boul
ders of Invn until the vicinity of the
crater was reached, when Mcrs.
James "Wilcox and Francois I.eMIeur,
an American and a Frenchman, in--Istcd

cavern which is formed below tho
mouth of the volcano. The guttles,
who provide thems-elvo" with ropes
for thnt puriose, compiled with the
request of the foreigners, and lower
ed them down. Tho mountain being
perfectly quiet, no danger was antic
ipated, but when ono of tho party
above tho crater called out to tho
rash adventurors, no answer M'ns re
turned. Tho guides, growing anx
ious, cried, " Gentlemen, It would
bo better for you to hold on to tho
ends of tho rope"." Still tho ropes
remained slack, and no answer canie
from the sulphurous uud murky cav

.York mid Boston Itnltroad. The fol-
lowing particulars of tho nllhlr arc
from tho New York Sttii :
Yesterday at noon tlvo hundred
pounds of nltro-glyeerlno exploded
near tho lino of the New York nnd
Boston Jtallroad, In YonkcrM, killing
ucorge Hill, aged twenty-one, nntl
.'lll'IHIll ItllllilKlllT, UITIM SIXll'L'Il , I
mortally wounding John Donnelly,
aged nineteen, nnd seriously Injuring'
William Terry, aged twenty-one.
jsinstiug uas doom going on in Hint
I vicinity of late, nnd ns a great amount
rluc has been dlspositcd nt dlU'oront
points for use when wanted. Hill, i
Chillagher, Donnolly and Terry while
out gunning, found Ave cans contain
ing one hundred pounds each. A pit
about four'feet deep had been dug, and
tho cans placed in the excavation. A
strong fence had been built mound It,
and on nil sides were placards bear
ing the words, " Danger," " llcwiue,"
The boys walked mound the fence !
commenting upon the Improbability
of danger from such hnrmless looking
ean, and Hill proposed that a" It was
Evacuation Day, they should create
some fun by smashing the can". The ,
others readily consented, nnd all four
clambered to tho top of a large rock,
about fifty feet above the glycerine,
nnd rolled a "tone weighing about fif
ty pounds, to t lie edge ol the rock, Hill t
mui (lallagher proposed to tumble It
Into the pit. Terry said the darned i
thing might strike fire nnd blow tho
stun up. Jilli laugiiiugiy snni, " i.ei
her blow: we'll have some fun any
way." Terry eclzed Donnelly by the
arm, and running away about two
hundred feet, they hid behind u largo
tree, nt the sumo time Jeered by Hill
and (.'nllaghcr. Hill then rolled tho j
stone down. It struck tho can", and
the explosion wns heard ami felt for
ten miles around. Trees, stones and
great chunks of earth were hurled in
every direction. Tho lock where Hill '
auiKfallaghcr stood, wolghlng hiui-;
dreds of tons, was blown Into frag
ment". Tho ground wns blown up
hundreds of feet around. A llrst class
earthquake could not have created I
greater havoc. Every pane of jilass In .
houses for miles around was shuttered, '
and the Inmates were terrllled. The
explosion was heard in White Plains, i
lurry town, iremont, uiiiiibioii
Heights nnd even over In New Jersey.
"Workmen from tho railroad hurried
to tho scene, well knowing what had
happened. They found Terry and
Dounolly with their clothing stripped
from their bodies, lying about two
hundred feet from the scene of the ex
plosion, groaning in agony. Donnol
ly's body was badly lacerated. His
legs and one arm Were broken, his
body was black and blue, and one eye
was gone. Ho was mortally wounded.
Terrv was tho least, hurt, and will
probably recover. He Is tho only one
cft to ivo ny account of the aflulr,
when the smoke had cleared away.

Ills legs wero found severed from his
body, which was stripped perfectly
nude. Kven his boots had been torn
to atoms and scattered amonir the tic-
brt. Tho hody, minus the urmsand
i head, lay about fifty feet from tho legs.
The excitement In honkers, and In
fact throughout the eutlro uelghbor-
'ool, was U'rrille. AllsorW oreoiiject-
ores were mvaiueii as ioic explosion.
Rome Insisted that Hell Onto had
blown up, while others thought there
had been an earthmiake. The super
stitious fell on their knees In prayer.
The Irreverent trembled with fear ; but
everybody anxiously Inquired what
the matter was. Ono old lady in tlm
suburbs of ilrouxvlllo was in her yard
when u piece of tho fence with the
wonl "iJunger" fell at her fwt, and
she fainted on tho spot.
