The Design of Prayer. The design
of prayer, therefore, is not merely to make
us devout while we are engaged in it, but
that its odour may be diffused through all
the intermediate spaces ot tbe day, enter
into all its occupations, duties, and tem
pers. Nor must its results be partial, or
limited to pleasant and easy duties, but
extend to such as are less alluring. When
ws pray, for instance, for our enemies, the
prayer must be rendered practical, must
be made a means of softening our spirits
and cooling our resentment toward them
If we deserve their enmity the true spirit
of prayer will put us upon endeavoring to
cure the fault which has excited it. If
we do not deserve it. it will put us on
striving for a placable temper, and we

Sup't. Pub. Instruction.
We printed yesterday in our telegraphic
columns a brief statement of the premoni
tory symptoms of volcanic eruption at or
near bald Mountain, western North Caro
lina. And this morning we publish further
and fuller particulars, which go to show
that tbe mountains must indeed be on
fire, not in the usual sense of burning
forests outside, but of actually and liter
ally raging fires inside.
We are at a loss to account for this
extraordinary demonstration on the part
of the staid old State just beyond the
border of conservative Virginia. The
recent death of the Siamese twins, with
the attention given to the event by the
scientific world, and the tragic end of the
last of the Lowerys the other day, ought
to have been enough, for some time, at
least, to satisfy the "old North State"
that her fame is not fading, and that the
Mecklenburg declaration of independence
is not all she has to boast in pointing to
the memorable epochs in her history.
But it is not so, it seerai . Her ambition,
is aronsed. Her jealonsy is moved.
Her blood is un for a rivalry of
California, or it may be of Italy itself.
She wants an earthquake, or a volcano,
or both. And as her Bald mountain
rumbles, and trembles, and sends out
smoke from its seething sides, a wonder
ing world stands agape and aghast, in
breathless apprehension of the outburst of
an ultramontane fire that shall light the
land from east to west, and make North
Carolina known even beyond the bounds
of civilization. But badinage aside and
our raillery with our sister State is, of
course, the familiarity of fondness there
is matter for serious reflection in this
phenomenon so new to us here. It is
something for the geologists to explain.
For augbt we kuow our own Old Do
minion mountains, that have never yet
been moved, may catch the contagion and
give us a volcano iu Virgiuia too. What
an attraction it would be to visitors in
summer ! What an advertisement it
would be for the proprietors of the spring !
If North Corolina is in earnest about es
tablishing a Vesuvius, Virginia will not

A BROOKLYN HORROR.
An Insane Man Chops His Wife up
with a Hatchet and Cuts His Otcn
Throat with a Razor.
Early on Snnday morning a terrible
tragedy occurred in Brooklyn, N. Y., in
which Dennis Delaney, a private watch
man, in an insane freak inflicted deadly
wounds on bis wife with a hatchet, and
then committed suicide by cutting his own
throat with a razor. The New York
Sun says :
"The only witness to the crime was a
little boy nine years old, was awakened
by the sound of blows. With three
younger children he slept in a pallet on

but he watched his father strike the no-

tbe hatchet and then with the head of it.
Then his father dropped the hatchet and
