Last Hope for the Chco Houte.
Tbe more we think und hear siiki about
tbe laio eanhquuko in San tFranoisco,
.and the eruption ot Mount Hood in
Oregon, the more -we are confirmed in
the boliel ihttt tbe Cuya of tbut people
are numbered. (To toe eure, there i
a bare ponBibility ot those underground
dteuirbiincea being a Bupernalural
warning to the inhabitants to do bet
ter in the future, with the promise df
iloagor lease ot'eurthly. oxiNteneo. In
the case of Oregon, the tinker of Di
vine wrath tieema plainly vitiible. The
great floods of 62 deuioiiatruted that
a surpluM of water -wus not exact ly the
element for destroying the Wubleet,
and tbe bigh water dodge, of Noah
memory, id abandoned in their case.
Even granting that thoy should nius
ter up industry sufficient to commence
a modem Tower of Babel, they would
. again have the advantage of tlieGrtuiti
Architect on the question of a " Con.
fusion of Tongues" having a lan
guage of their own .that they could
tall back on, and which is undoubtedly
boyond tbe knowledge even, lot alone
the control, of the Powers above But
thero is evidently to bo no escape from
the wrath to come. Mouut Hood is
overlooking the movements of that
people like the sword of Damocles,
ready at the parting of u hair, to dis
gorge a bellyful ot fire and brimstone
all over them. We may bo censured
somewhat for this, but "let facts bo
submitted to a candid woild. An
earthquake would have but little effect
an the foothold of a Webfoot he
could stand any amount Blowing
around," and perhaps fed the belter;
for it. But the Columbia River is in
danger of being closed by an eruption'
of Hood, and with the fate ot the
Brother Jonathan staring tbe traveler
in the face, we are again prompted to
recommend the advantages of the
Cbieo route over that of the Oregon.
We think everything is stated so plain
ly, that Ills' not neewsary to discourse
further on tbe sugject at present.
False AppEARANeEs.--The New
York Sun warns its readers not to
take hectio flush of seeming prosperity
for tbe bloom ot real personal or na
tional health. It therefore soberly
and wisely says: "Government in in
debt twenty seven hundred millions
of dollars all contracted with n the
last five years. Every dollar of that
debt, which boars interest, is distribu
ted among the people, and every tax
payer must bear a share of the burden,
according to the taxable valuation ot
bis property. It matters not how
much of this interest is paid by direct
tax, or bow much in tbe way ot inter.
nal revenue ; in one way or another it
all rests upon tbe pooplo, and tbe
country at large is justube said twen
ty seven hunaVod million dollars poor
er than it would havo been without
the war, to say nothing of the general
wastage of resources, Ilow is it, then,
that we are apparently richer, while
in reality a great deal poorer than
before the rebellion ? the truth is, that
our present condition is unnatural
baseless, transitory. The war created
an artificial prosperity, which, nl
though well enough for the individuals
who ' made buy while the sun shone,
was fictitious and unreal, so far as the
couutry was concerned.
A New Religious Movement. A
singular religious movement was be
gun in England a few weeks ago. It
is proponed to unite the members of
the English, Iloman Catholio and
-Greek churches in friendly commun
ion' and the public journals report
that threo hundred churches in Eng
land have assented to tbe measure.
' The institution is formed under the
title of "The Association for the
Promotion of the Unity of Christen
dom," to unite in a bond of intercessor
. ry prayer among members. They
bjo not to compromise any principles
' which they, rightly or wrongly, hold
iniiiii' n ,Timr-gf,v'-,-'i
dear; they are simply asked to uitfte
for the promotion ot a hih andl-holy
end- The names of the members are
to bo kept : strictly: private, '-and the
only obigi'tion imposed lXipon thfno
who join 'the association is the daily
use of a nrrtrt 'form of prayer, to
whiib it added,' in the cane of priests,
the otferiiKg. 'tit. least once in three
months, lif-tlie Holy Hucrifice.
'A ma-n dining with a friend, one
day, wus struck by the earnestness
with which one of the little girls re
garde him. He therefore took her
upon his knee, and began talking
with her. " Pleatte, fir" said lie,
presently, "teJI -me what's in the
house next to j'our,; JL'd-likc to sue it."
Tell me, my .lit tie dar, why you 'Wish
to know."' 'Because, Sir, II hoard
mamma -say that you wro next door
to a brute;"
A woman in one of tb census din
.tricts on Long Island gave to the
enumeratoi the names ot t wenty of
her children, and ihen said she be
lieved there were two or threo more,
but she could'nt just theu remember
Wlulling, reading uloud from a let
ter just received, of a friend who had
been " washed overboard," was tuken
aback by a precocious five-year old
inquiry if too man was too dirty to be
washed on board the ship.
