n iijwuj i i minu "and Adventure in the Mammoth Cave. The Louisville Journal, of the 11th insi., •ODtains the following thrilling narative: At the supposed end of what has always been considered the longest avenue of the Mammoth|Cave,nine miles from its entran je, there is a pit,dark, deep, and terrible,known as the Maelstrom. Tens of thousands have gazed into it with awe, whilst Bengal lights were thrown down it to make its fearful depths visible, but none had the daring to explore it. The celebrated guide Stephen, who was deemed insensible to f§ar, was of- fered $600 by the proprietors of the cava if he would descend to the bottom of it,but he shrank from the peril. A fow years ago, a Tennessee professor, a learned and bold man, resolved to do what none before him had dared to do, and, making his arrange- ments with great caro and precaution, he had hin 3elf lowered down by a strong rope a hundred feet, but at that point his cour- age failed him, and he called aloud to be drawn ou...

¡édHfca Rational Characteristic . A missionary in the " Celestial Flower? Kingdom" gives an account of some of the peculiarities ®f the people of that densely populated section of the earth. Ele says : The Chinese parents select the wives for their son?, and decide whom their daugh ters shall marry. Their badge'of mourning is while, and their funeral cards are writ- ten with l«ue ink. They -mourn for the dead by proxy, and select a burying place for the departed by the aid of one who viakes that bis profession. We read bor- ilontally, they perpendicularly. We read from left to right ; they, from right to left'. We uncover the head as a'mark of respect; they put on their caps. We 'black-ball our boots; iliey white-wash theirs. .We compress the waist; they, the feet. We give the place of honor on the right; thgy, on the left. We speak of r.orth-weVt; they, of west north.
