And abounding in wealth, but remark
able for the wickedness and cruelty
of -its people. . They exceUed the
world in burning heretics and perse
cuting originators of Dew ideas. Sud
denly an earthquake sunk ninetenths
of their oity more than mu leet below
the level of the sea. The waters of
the Adriatio closed over their spires,
palucos and prison-houses, and noth
ing was loft of Ragusa but a wretched
scattering suburbs. Feasants, ven
to this day , havj a marvelous J-cgend.
They say it went down so straight
that scarcely a wall was broken or a
steeple prostrated; that the wicked
inhabitants had cburmed Jives' and
are still under the dominion of Nop
tuno, following their old pursuits, all
unconscious of the world above them.
As th j Dalmatian fisherman suits his
shallop over the quiet eea at eventide,
looking down into the still blue depths,
he is startled by the hum of strange
voices rising from the streets of this
city of the old strange voices shriek
ing, cursing, imploring in a dead Ian-,
guuge, but refuHcd to be hushed oven
in death. In this upper world twelve
generations have passed tway, king
doms and dynasties have risen and
fallen, the bayonet has supplanted the
spear and the battle ax, the cannon
the battering ram, knowledge has
triumphed over force, and the fires of
bigotry are extinguished. Italy is
free. But down in the raagio streets
of the submarine city, all the habits
and customs of the middle agos are
Indian Superstition. The Klam
ath News of September 9th says:
" One day lust week a squuw be
longing at the mouth of Salmon was
shot by an Indian from the Altaram
ranch. The nephew of the Indian
had died a few days before, and his
relatives were positive that the cause
of bis disease was some internal, no
cromantio operation of the squaw in
question. When on the hill above
Mr. Sims' house, the aggrieved met
the unfortunate ' witch,' and shot her
with a rifle. Sims and White, wit
nessed the affair from u distance. '1 he
murderer escaped, congratulating him
self that he had rid his tribe in gene
ral, and his ranch in particular, of a
dangerous enemy, whose supernatural
powers were the dread of the Altaram
branch of the Klamath nation. The
Klamath Indians are very suporsti
tious, and such occurrences as the one
above related are by no means unfre.

were two Hanoverian horses which
assisted in drawing the same gun dur
ing tho wbolo Peninsular war, in tho
German Brigade of artillery. One oi
them met his death in an engagement ;
after which the survivor was picketted
as usual, and his food was brought to
him. lie refused to eat, and kept
constantly turning his head around to
look for his companion, and sometimes
calling him by a noigh. ' Every care
was taken, aud all means that could
be thought of were "adopted to moko

horses surrounded him on all sides,
but he paid no attention to them : his
whole demeanor indioated the deepest

The Amende (Honorable. The
Jockey Club (says Qalignaneh Mes
senger) has just lost one oi its most
amiable members, M. Alexandre
Bouchet. The following anecdote is
related of him : Perceiving one day,
after a heavy fall of rain, a very well
dressed' yonng woman standing wt the
edge of the side pavement of the
Boulevard, find evidently much per
plexed as to the host method of trav
ersing the ea ot mud before her, bo
gallantly advanced, took her up in
his arms, and carried her across dry

to the mode of transit, but, on oumg
set down expressed her gratitude us

mediately repaired the wrong by

precautions, to the very spot where
no hud first met her, and took his
leavo with a profound salutation.
