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 their numes. 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.
