He was absent,! but we found his son, a smart young .ellow, who produced his book of certiti- j cates, and among them one from Pro- j fessor Silliman, whose commendatifiJ "Sufficient, and we committer ourselves at once to his care. Giovaui, lor that was his name, supplied us at once with horses, and we set off with the whole gang of boys, beggars, and guides in full cry after us. They assured us that one guide would not be enough ? we should need help in climbing the moun tain, and each one had some peculiar service to render which was quite indis-l pensable to our success. By dint of' hard riding we managed to gee away lrom them and by a road that was well paved and had been for a thousand years we rode on for an hour, and then com menced an ascent by a winding but easy path, which, after another hour, brought us to the table-land, where stands the Hermitage with refreshments for trav elers. .Our way had led us through lields in which men were at work, and many women Aluted us Ms we passed-' V ast strata of lava were lying in great' ridges, along the sides of which the vines were growing luxuriantly, where the waves of liquid stone had once flowed and cooled, now stretching in long rows like rivers from the mountain to the We often paused on our upward way m look back on the enchanting prospcct? the neat white cottages m the hifl-side*, the villages on the plain, the city, t\m bay, the islands, and the blue sea. A glorious vision, every moment growing more beautiful as we ascend and take in a wider view. Now we observe succes sive layers of lava, with the common earth between; on the border of a ra vine we could thus count four starta de posited by as many overflows of the boiling caldron. Alter leaving the Hermitage we crossed immense fields of lava, over which a path lor the horses has been made, and in sin gle tile we made our way to the foot of the cone of Vesuvius. We are now be tween Monte Somma and Vesuvius. They were one in olden times, till the great eruption of A. D. 79 left this valley after the mountain had flowed down to the plain and the sea, and buried the cities of Her culaneum and Pompeii. At the base of the cone a dozen fellows were awaiting the arrival of travelers, and with sedan chairs would carry those to the summit who preferred that to walking; and when we all refused to be carried, they follow ed us, insisting that we should allow them to haul ua up with a handkerchief about our waists. Taking the track along the side of a ridge of lava, now and then leaving it for the ashes, into which we sank and slipped back about as fait as we got up, we climbed as perpendicu larly as un a ruined stairway of some old castle. From time to time I was obliged to sit down on the ragged piles of lava, and gather strength for the asocnt, for the summit seemed to recede as we ap proached it. But we did it in forty min utes from the baao of the cone. N^w on the rim of the crater, the ground on which we are trwding is opened with seams or cracks, from which smoke or steam issues continually, and il we listen we can hear the roar of the in ternal fires beneath our feet. We went a few steps below the verge to get some protection from the cool winds that blew too freshly on us in our heat, and there we placed a lot of eggs in the crevices of the earth, and made Vesuvius cook them for our dinner. Refreshed and rested, we descended a hundred feet into the crater, and, standing on a ledge of rocks, we could see down into lower depths, from which the smoke was rising, but no fire was perceptible.

It was harder to get out of it than in.

Happily, the wind was favorable, and when wc came round to the western side we were relieved, and could look of! oa the magruficast prospect which the sum mit of Vesuvius commands.

We can now look far off into the country, where cities have been, and white villages now are, | and smiling vineyards, down into whose bosom these black streams extend from the site of the mountain. And here is beautiful Naples, girding the sea with its suburban villages; and there lie the islands of Capri and Ischia, and this "great and wide sea." But wc must not be looking off. We plunge our walk ing sticks into the ground, and eut rushes the smoke and sulphurous eas We walk on a* find new openings, and hot steam issues, before which we could not hold our hands. We step across wide fissures from which the Fcalding vapor was ascending, and we could distinctly | hear the roar of the boiling caldron be low. At last we completed the circuit of the crater's rim, and sat down again to rest and think. What a wonderful past has been around this burning moun tain ! Before the Phoenicians came hither these flames had been burning, and the Synac language gave the volcano its name. Jupiter Tonans, the Thunderer once had a temple on the summit?"Jovi Vesuvio sacrum, D.C." Pliny's graphic story of that awful eruption, which de stroyed the cities of the plains, we read while in full view of all the localities which he describes. It gave a temble reality to the scene. Other cities are now lying nearer to this crater than Pompeii, and are thoughtlessly treasur ing up wrath against a similar day of wrath. May God save them from such a doom! It is time to descend. The sun is on the downhill side, and wc have a buried city yet to see. A*vay we went through the soft ashes which had been soaked by a heavy rain the night before, and now made a yielding bed for our feet, as by successive leaps of ten or fifteen feet at every bound we came dowQ, and never paused to look ba4k, and had no need to r?t till we were * the foot of the cone. This operation did not occupy more than ten minutes, aad was full of excite ment. i Mounting our horses, we were called on tfc pay a man who wsb dressed as a soldier, marching around with a run on his shoulder. 44 What for, pray ?" "Oh, the rascals who are here pre tending to be guides would'plunder eve rybody who f?U into their hands, if it were not for the guards which the gov ernment places here for your protec tion." This beiag done, and half a dozen more being paid for some service or oth er, we hardly knew what, we got away, and had an easy and pleasant ride down again to Resina.?Travels in Eu ope. iMPaOVEMENTS LH NORTH CAROLINA. The Internal Improvement Committee of the Senate of ilorth Carolina have pub lished a report reviewing the action of the last Legislature on the subject, and giving a very encouraging account of the projected works, f he State has under taken to make the subscriptions neces sary to complete the improvements au thorized, provided individual stock be taken in the proportion prescribed. She owns at present in works constructed and being completed stock to the amount of $3,432,500. The total prospective subscription for the next two years is $3,000,000; total amount of endorse ments for the same period $1,550,000; total amount of present State debt for works of internal improvement $2,772, 000. Proper safeguards have been pro vided that the State's credit is not to be strained. The committee close with the I following encouraging remarks: "Your committee cannot conclude this report without referring to the fact, new in the history of the State, that this General Assembly, forgetting political scheming and remembering no party dif ference, has exhibited the soene of gen eral and cordial as well as a most har monious co operation on this great ques tion. Such has been the happy result of the concurring agreement of fast sum mer to place this subject above the party themes; and if hereafter there are found any desirous of again throwing this great and most vital matter into the political arena, your committee can only hope that the prudent forethought, the en larged liberality, and enlightened wis dom of the new age will fortnd the State to be again delivered up to the curse of such a fate; and earnestly trust that henceforth one sentiment may pervade all parties, one resolve possess "all her peo ple to place North Carolina in the rank of States where her capabilitiea and re sources entitle her to stand/' Death op a Rkmarkablb Fiu Dog>.?

Crimk in Boston.?During the last ten days there has been no lea than fourteen sudden and nolent deaths in this city and vicinity. Three of them were occasioned by stabbing. la one of these cases of alleged murder, the circumstances are the most remark able that have occurred since the Park uian case A wife (Mrs. Sias ) is found strangled in her bed, and her husband is arrested, charged with the crime. There is no actual evidence Of his guilt, but a chain of circumstances is being gradu ally brought out which may ultimately develop the whole matter. It appears that the trouble between Has and his wife was the result of her suspicions that he was criminally intimate with another woman, whom she therefore turned out of the house. It also appears that after wards he was in the hat>it of viating this woman at a house in Cbarle6town. An other witness testifies that Sias eta ted that he was willing to pay a thousand dollars, or even more, if his wife would remain at Great Falls, where she had been visiting. Other witnesses are yet to be examined. In another case, that of Mrs. Green, of Commercial street, found mur dered in her shop, no trace has yet been found of the murderer.?Boston Tumd ler, March 24.
