wilhin a. hundred feet of the bottom, we
halted at a signal just below us. , It was
warning that a blast was to be fired. We
waited a few seconds in suspense the
match had failed but another instant
brought a convulsive shock, and a loud
'report as of rolling thunders. This noise,
though almost deafening below, cannot
be hearabove ground. We followed the
drippmg passage, thfough the smoke of
the powder, sometimes leaping across
yawning chasms, and now crawling on
handstand knees, or climbing over heaps
of ore, till we reached the end of the cor
ridor. Here we found two miners, one to
turn the-chisel. the other to strike. They
usually Avork jn pairs, following the course
of the veins, which run North and South.
One of the miners, from the Copper mines
of Cornwall, told mr that the British
mines were, some of them. 300 fathoms
deep, and so intensely hot as to be almost
beyond , endurance. The day, above
ground, was unpleasantly 'warm, but I
found the mines quite cool and. refresh

accomodations for 4,000 spectators. The
interior is to be an amphi theatre, much
more capacious and costly than any thea

armed chair, dress circle, parquet and gal

ventilated and lighted, with facilities for
speedy ingress, lighted with gas and Hen

A DISCOVERY IN SUKGERY.
A Prussian named Aran is said to have re.

inu is very enectual in its operation. From
the account, a small quantity of the fluid, (from
ten lo twenty drops) is dropped on the part ef
fected, or on a lint bandage slightly moistened
with water, and then applied, and all bound up
in oil silk, and n linen band. After from two
to en minutes ihe part becomes insensible, and
the pain is no longer fell, whether it be from
rheumatic, nervous, or olher disorders. fer
a lime it returns again, but usually weaker, and
with several applications il is often entirely re
lieved. The discoverer has presented a me.

Ancient and Modern Strong Men. A paper
was read before the British Association, enti
lied " A Comparison of Athletic Men of Great
Britain with Greek Statues," by Mr. J. B.
Brent. Mr. Brent in order to obtain those ol
the athletic, measured and weighed celeliraied
boxers, cricketers, wrestlers, rowers, pedestri
ans and others. These he compared to the
height and weights of soldiers and policemen,
and then wilh celebrated Greek statues. And
from such a comparison it appears that the
wrestlers of Cornwall, Devon, and the north ol
England are not inferior to those gtatuts.
Taking him up af his Word. We learn
from a distinguished Missisippian, says the
Louisville Journal, lhat ihe Hon. Jefferson Da
vis. United Slates Senator from that State, has
constantly announced in the public speeches he
lias made, that, il ihe people of Mississippi
should, in the elections of the present season,
go against the "State Rights party," as il calls
itself, and sustain Gen. Foote. he would resign
his seat in the Senate. Weli, the election of
delegates to ihe State Convention has gone o
verwhelmingly against Davis and his friends,
and it is now certain that the Gubernatorial
election to take place next month will go a
gainst them still more overwhelmingly. We
ha ve no doubt that Col. Davis will resign in ac
cordance with his pledge, for, badly as we think
of his politics, we regard hirn as a gentleman
of high personal honor. f J is resigualion will
be gratifying lo ail of the true and undeluded
friends o the country. His whole influence in
ihe Senate, as well as out of it, has been given
lo the accursed cause of dinmion.

other friends of the deceased, proceeded lo the
grave with shovel and pick, dug up the body,
oMned the coffin, cut the shroud, and then a
Miigeon was found lo cul from lhat mass of cor

length of lime since the daih of theperson.
The heart and lungs were laid upon the grass,
impregnating the atmosphere with their horrid
odor, and wrapped in ihe pocket handkerchief

while the members of ihe family inhaled their
incense, and afterward ate the ashes.

FROM THE COMMERCIAL
Mr. Lokixo : A fiieod and neighbor of
mine who is in the habit of (occasionally) bor
rowing the Baltimore Sun, returned several
numbers a d.i or two since, and said he would
not borrow them again if they did not print it
on large and clearer type. He had frequent
ly borrowed it ol others who were subscribers
and found it invariably ihe case ; the print so
small and bad, that it was worth more lo read
the news from it iban the news was worth af.
ter gluing it ; especially if one has weak eyes.
He thinks the Sun has done more for the optic
al instrument rnnker, than it has (or the libera
tors of Cuba. 1 must say I think he was at
leasi hall right. I often strain my eyes ex.
cessively to read it. I would be pleased lo see
it appear in a nrw suit. Now that the Cuban
excitement is over.
C"Ths copies ue get of ihe Baltimore Sun
are always very fair. The type is necessarily
small. Borrowers axe always the most diffi
cult to please in a newspaper. We suppose
Ihere. are aloot half as many borrowers as sub
scribers to The Commercial ; and we learn
from the bor rotters lhat they are very much
dissatUfied on several points. The matter of
expense is ihe only thing agreeable to ibem. -

Singular Discovery. A place has late

Pennsylvania, several feet befow the sur
face of the earth, where is found petrole
