MONEY DIGGING. Tho Exoter News Letter describes an cn terpriio which has produced a scene of ex citement in the town of Poplin, in New Hampshire.

"He touched hisharp,and nations heard, entranced. GOOD NIGHT. a svviss hymnTop dauphiny. Amongst the Alpino regions, the Shepherd's Horn is the signal for a solemn and religious ceremony, and so used for a more noble purpose than the mere recall of cattle from their pas turagc. When the sun has quitted the valley, and his lingering beams casta glow of fading light on the summits of the mountains, the shep. herd, whose hut is on the highest Alp, grasps his horn and pronounces through his speaking trumpet this solemn injunction to the world be low: "Praise ye the Lord." Every shepherd in the neighborhood, who catches the sound, in succession repeats the same sentence at the door of his cabin ; thus perhaps for n quarter of an nour the elms and rocky precipices fling to each other the oft repeated echoes of the sub lime admonition. A holy stillness succeeds the last reverberation ; all kneel bareheaded, and in silent devotion, until darkness reigns upon the earth, and veils the towerin...
