Our citizens were vfsited on Monday
last by a slight fall of snow, which lays on
the ground at the time of working off our
paper. There is not, however, sufficient
to allow of the running of sleighs, and
therefore, with the exception of those who
enjoy snow-balling, it is of very little ad
vantage to anybody, and only makes it
very bad walking.
Every paper we receive is filled with
details of fires, some of which are very
destructive, and we again caution our cit
izens to be careful of their fires, as there
is nothing that will stop this destructive
element, if it once gets in our midst.
Earthquake at Malta.
On Sunday the 25th of October, at eleven
minutes before 2 o'clock, A. M., the Is
lands of Malta and Gozo were visited by
shocks of an earthquake, so violent in
their nature, and so long in their duration,
that the oldest inhabitants do not remem
ber ver to have experienced anything so
severe. I he Iirtt shock made itself per
ceptible by a tremendous motion, similar
to that caused by the passing of a heavy
gun carriage a thousand times repeated,
accompanied by a rumbling noise, of dis
tant thunder, which rapidly increased in
violence until every building trembled.
Scarcely a minute had elapsed, when a
more violent shock, accompanied by a
louder noise, occurred. The alarm occa
sioned was general throughout town and
Men, women and children, suddenly
aroused from their slumbers, issued from
every house, rushed into the streets and
made their way to the squares, and other
spaces, which soon became full of people.
The sentry at the Treasury left his post
and ran to the main guard, which he turned
out, under the impression that shells were
being thrown into the town by an enemy
from some steam fleet. The two shocks,
the interval being so brief as to be incal
culable, lasted two minutes. In the . city
of Valetta scarcely a building escaped in
jury, and all corner structures have more
particularly suffered. Of the Roman
Catholic churches those of San Giacomo,
St. Orsola, and St. Doininico appear to
have suffered most.
At Floriana, and in each of the three
cities, as well as in the harbor, the shocks
were felt with considerable vigor, and at
Sengels, Cospicua, and Viltoriosa, many
of the buildings are injured. Persons on
board ships in the port describe the effect
of the earthquake, as felt by them, as of
letting go the ship's boats from the davits
by the run, only much stronger. The sea
receded two feet and a half. The night
had been without a breath of air, with a
sultry sensation, the sea, perfectly calm,
and the moon shining in a clear sky with
a brightness that seemed to transform night
into day, it being within twenty-one hours
of full moon.
At Civita Veceha, iu the interior of the
island, all the churches, monasteries, nun
neries and hospitals, (the church of St.
Augustine excepted,) sustained greater or
less damage. The dome of the cathedral
is rent, so as to admit the light, and the
belfry is much shaken.
In Malta it is usual to ring the bells of
the churches on occasion of imminent
danger, and on Sunday, soon after the
shocks had ceased, U burst of tintinabular
sounds was everywhere to be heard.
On the same day, a Tt Dcum or thanks
giving was chanted in all the churches,
to which was added the ceremony of the
holy sacrament, and sermons were de
livered to crowded conjrretrations. So
impressed were the natives with the com
mon persuasion that a repetition of the
phenomenon would occur at the expira
tion of twenty-four hours, that few went
to their beds on the following night until
after the clock had struck iwo, remaining
until uVn from sunset o the squares,
bastians and parade grounds, grain fosse

The recent drought has naturally sug-' should have occasion two or three limes n
gested the inquiry whether, with all our f week to endure a very tiirly ceremony,
ingenious inventions uud wonderful ini- namely, the insertion of a itobe some
provemonts we should ever be able to siqv
ply by artificial means the want of rain.
Some of the results of this imput y, as fur-nir-hed
by a scientific friend, may not be
without interest to our renders.
On an average, there falls annually in
ruin and snow, in a space of ten miles
square taking for example, Philadelphia j
as the center nn amount of water sulli-1
cient to fill a reservoir ono mile square J
and .'170 feet dec)), or enough to fill a '
reservoir half a mile square and I , ISO
feet more than a quarter of n mile ! iu
li'iuh. 1 Ins is rather more than .itl ,
million cubic yards, or seventy-four bil
lions of gallons.
Again, there falls in rain nnd snow in
the Slate of Pennsylvania every year, us
much wuter as would fill a reservoir 1(50
miles loop;, one mile wide, and 370 foot
leep. This is equivalent to alwwo thirty-
two cubic miles of water, 31.NI1 billions
Again, supposing the same number of
, - e ii ii
inches ot ram, on average, 10 lau in ao
parts of the United Stales ns in Pennsyl
vania, the annual aggregate of rain iu the
entire territory of our country, would j
amount to more than 2.100 cubic miles !
It is calculated that the Fairmount wa
ter-works are capable of raising twelve
millions of gallons in twenty-four hours.
They do not however, usually raise more
than seven or eight millions per day.
Assuming the daily quantity at eight mil
lions, it would at this rate require 9,620
days, or more than twenty-five years for
those works to raise as mucli water ns on
an average falls every year in the small
space of ten miles square. More than
eleven thousand years would be necessary
in order to raise as much water as falls
annually in the State of Pennsylvania,
while more than seven hundred thousand
years would be required in order to raise
a quantity as great as falls every year in
the territory of the United States.
A cubic mile of water is a short nnd
simple phrase, easily written and quickly
spoken, but the difficulty is for any human
mind to form an adequate idea of it.
Suppose a man to dip from one vessel to
another a gallon at a time he could not,
under the most favorable circumstances,
average more than a gallon in two seconds
or thirty callous per minute ; now, if he
should work at this rate nigbt and day
without the slightest intermission.it would
require more than seventy-thousand years
to dip out the number of gallons contained
in a cubic mile.
In order, however, to form any just
idea of the inimitable grandeur on which
Nature conducts her operations, we must
bear in mind, that the water which she
designs for the refreshing of the earth,
she raises, not like our artmnal water
works, merely one, two, or three hundred
feet, but high enough to supply water to
every animal or vegetable existing on the
face of the earth from 13,000 to 11,000
feet for some of the mining districts of
South America, and not less than 16,000
feel for the highest inhabited regions of
The foregoing calculations may be relied
on as correct. We have assumed the
annual fall of rain at 44 1-2 inches, which
is a trifle less than the yearly average,
according to meteorological tables kept
during the last fifteen years; 46,000
square miles have been taken as the area
of Pennsylvania, and 3,000,000 square
miles as the area of the entire territory of
the United States.
The miseries of a Modern Hero.
Lieutenant Dunham Massy, of the 19th
English Regiment, in replying to an ar
ticle which recently oppearea in a co
temporary, accusing him of an excessive
amount of foolish vanity in believing him
self a hero, denies, in a very piojr
tone of repudiation, this somewhat dam
aging accusation. -He devoutly "thanks
God that ho is not such a fool as to
think himself a hero ; indeed, taking bis
own estimate of the persecutions to which
a hero is exposed, there are few, we ap
prehend, except the mct eager for the
world's applause, and for the sweet voices
of the mob, who would consent to endure
the civil attentions thus described by Mr.
'Sir, you do not know the miseries of
being a hero. Penny-a-liners arrest your
servants as they go of errands, and ask
where you were born, where you were
brought up, who was your grandfather,
and who was your schoolmaster; and
some day you see a hideous biographical
caricature of yourself,
seizes on you ; an artist, pencil in nanu,
waylays you ; an engraver puts your iden
tity upon proof; invitations to public ban
quets come in upon you, on cards as larire
as dinner plates ; young ladies, in prettily
folded notes, solicit your autograph. You
receive rn overwhelming supply of tracts
from ladies of a graver age; imaginary
poets harruss you with doggeral verses;
authors of bad books send you copies of
their tiresome works ; you are stared at
iu the streets ; when your carriage stops,
your horse is provokingly patted on the
neck ; you are shouted at in the theatres.
In fact, comfort and privacy are at an end.
