Spirit et till. Times. A SSr-U'PERV STORY. A ludicrous ?cene occurred lie-1 other day in Anthony street, near where (he new theatre is in course of construct; on. whieh, ¡i'a deSGrfptton may eonvey an adequate Impression of it, is well worth the telling. One of t'ie laborers growing thirsty under the influence of a hot sun. went hastily over to the nearest- hydrant fbr a drink*, and chipping his capacious month to tin? spout, imbibed theCroton jnst aa it cainoin the most forcible and plenteous manner imaginably. Hardly had poor Mike, however, tasted the gushing flood that distended his cheeks, when he started boltuprlght, and with a look of amazing horror, oonimeiic d a aeries of pantomimic contortions which were absolutely painful to witness. " 0\v—ow—ugh!'' he groaned convulsively, af the same time clewing at his throat in a frenzied manner, while lie spirted water forth again-with the energy of a wounded whale ; then suddenly recovering the use of hi ■ p ■- ■ b be i bouted—"Oob, marther! but lues gone,—it's all over wid me now !■" 4i What's gone V exclaimed I'm crowd that had gathered around him. " What's gone?" "IVe swallowed bim] Oh, howly St. Patrick! IVe swallowed bim f'; ,cAndwbai t&e deuce is ityeVe swallowed?" " A snake! a murlheriiig snake! Oh, howly St. Fatricic protect me?-'' " Sure, then yo've made a saving of yer dinner F said a feilow laborer, more alive to fun than sympathy,—while a shout of mingled laughter ami incredulity followed in which even the poor sufferer could hardly restrain irom joining. " But wasjt alive, man ?" Inquired an individual when the confusion subsided. " Alive, did you say ? By the blessed powers, ye don't think I'd be afier eating him dead? Alive, is it? and didn't he jump down my throat in spite of my teeth?" Then clapping his hands to hi stomach, he exclaimed, " Och hone, he's squirming now! Oh, howly ¿Só Patrick! Oh, wliyditl'iit ye do yer work entirely, aad kill the shakes Iii this murthering country Loo? Help! he'd bit" iiie in- side iv me! Oh howly ÍÍ03W¡ Help! miu'ilier! lire!" and pnnr'itíke dis trac led by fear, cut more capera than a Camat.ehe at a wardaaco. "Tut, tut! be quiet, man!" returned another. " How do yon know il was a snake ?" "How does I know, is it? Did'nt T falo bim wiggling his tail ? Oh howly saint deliver hie!'' A benevolent looking gentleman here suggested * that it might possibly be a ¡bit, or perhaps au eel, and remarked there ought to ha a Ibi.r attached lo every hydrant in thecüy, aa the water was iuil oi all sorts of auiruaieane etc, "It's an ail! it's an aili" ¡shouted a hodman, Catching at tiie idea. "Mite, it's an ail! run fora filter, aud you'll catch the rascal prisintly." " A fitter! a filter V waSthe general cry, "Han, Mike, for a filter." Without waiting to enquire into the feasibility of using the article in question for the purpose desired, the poor distracted =Soh of Eriu started with tiie speed of a race-horse for the office in Ii roadway, where the picture of Hebe standing In ths front window, "pours her never ceasing fount." " A what d'ttc call em?" cried he, rushing frantically iuto the establishment. "A snake catcher for the love of 1 Oh howly Saint Patrick !" he continued, snatching up one and applying it energetically to his lips, " Come out wid ye, ye thief o' thc world." "My good fellow,'-' eaid ¡h" astonished knight of Diaphams, "what's the mutter with you?" "Matter is it? isn't everything thc matter! I've got an ail iu my stomach! och, Imllnboo !" "An eel! how came an eel in your stomach?" "And din't the varmint jump into my mouth without saying by yer leave!" said the bewildered sufferer endeavoring to screw tlie filter to his lips. "But that won't do you any good now. It Should have been attached to tho hydrant, and then yon might have drank with perfect safety." " And .won't it catch him uow ?" asked Mike, in a piteous tone, turning aghast as he dropped the instrument in despair. ** Of course not, how should it?" . "Och! murther, what will become of mc?" cx:- clalmed Mike, ivith agony truly painful to behold. "Get a sttekdologer fish-hook! shouted a wag from the crowd. " Run for the doctor !" said another, "and geta ¡stomach pump." This suggestion was instantly followed, and he started for a drug store near by. The apothecary, however, applied an emetic for a pump, and the poor fellow, after a voilcnt retching, ejected a lively black eel about sis inches long. "Oh howly St. Patrick!" he'exeUimefl. experiencing immediate relief. "Why flint ye make clean work of it and kill the p.Ua pa well! share, »id they're the first eotisin to the wicked sarpinta. Tlie Circa t ¿Plague. In "Dickens'Child's History of England," "Vol. 2, we find the following respecting ti*c Great Plague that prevailed iu tlie seventeenth century iu »he city of London : " For this waa thc year and the time of the Great Plague in London. During the winter of 1664, It liad'been whispered about that Some people had died here and there of disease called the Plague, in some of.the unwholesome suburbs of London. News WW not published at that time as it is now. and some people believed these rumors and some disbelieved them and they wore soon forgotten. But In the month of May, 166=5, it began to be said all over the town that tlie disease had burst out iu -":. i ,:l ■-) and that the people were flying in great numbers. This soon turned out tobe awfully true* 'fhe roads of London wore ílinked up by people endeavoring to escape from the infected city, and large sums Were paid for any kind of ¿onveya'.iee. ■o soon spread ¿o fast that it was necessary to shut up the bouseio which tiie people were, aud to out them o¿¡' from the living. Lvory one of those hou ■ ■ i -1 on the ou'-mle of the '. a red cross, and tho words **Lord have mercy o ■ us b' Theetreetawerealldeserted, grass grew in the ii'i':lie ways, au-l there Vas au awful silencein fi I (fight came on, dismal rumblings used, to,be beard] and those were the wheels of the death oart, attended by men with veiled face■-. an I hoM'-.g cloths to their mouths who rang doleful bells, and cried iu a loud and solemn voice—-firing out your dead.9 The corpses put iuto these carts were buried by torch light iu great pits, no service being performed over them —all men being afraid to slay fora moment on the bank of the- ghastly graves. In the general feveiychildren ran away from their parents, aud parents frem their children. Some who were taken ill, died alone and without any help. Some were stabbed or strangled by hired nurses, who robbed them of all their money and stele the very beds on which they lay. Some1 (not mad, dropped from their windows, ran thro' the Streets and in theft pain aud frenzy, threw themselves into the river. Those were not all the horrors of the lime. The wicked and dissolute, in wild desperation, sat in taverns, singing and roaring songs, and were stricken as they sat, and went out and died. The fearful and supernatural sights ■burning sworfls in Ihe sky, gigantic arms and darts. Oth'T.i pretended that at night vast crowds ghosts walked round and round the dismal pits. Oue madman, naked, carrying a brazier full of burning coals upon his head, stalked through Ihe streets, crying that lie was a prophet commissioned to denounce the vengeance of the Lord on wicked London. Another also went to and fro, exclaiming : "Yet forty days and London shall be destroyed!" A third awoke tlie echoes of the dismal streets, by aight aoáVüay, and made the blood of the sick run cold, by calling out incessantly, in a de. p hoarse voice—" Oh the great aad the dreadful God?" XI)rough tiie months of July, August and Sept. the Great Plague raged more and more. Great fires were lighted iu the streets, in the hope of stopping the infection ; but there was a plague of rafe, too, and that beat the fires out. At last the winds lhat usually rise at that time called the equinox, when day and night are of equal length all over the world, fegan to blow and purify the wretched town. The deaths began to decrease, the ed crospes slowly to dUippear, tho fugitives to return, the shops to open agaiu, pale, frightened ¡aces to be seen in the streets. The plague had been in every part of England, but iu close and unwholesome Loudon, it had killed one hundred thousand people." Bffa |ak iVjtrfotnunts. By Royal fieetM» i'i lent.

The vein has been traced eighteen miles among the mountains by sinking shafts. and is from <i to S feet in depth, and about eighteen feet wide. Itis unknown how much further tlie vein extends, but it is in al! probability interminable and inexliausfable. The coal is represented as being of a very superior quality—unmixed with slate or other impurities common in most coal mines—and of a, quality vastly superior to that usually shipped to this country from cither king- land, South America or the United States. It burns readily, and emits a bright light and intense heal, leavijlg a deposit of fine ashes. Tiie location oi'the minéis about 20 miles from Marysville aud easily accessible.
