Someof the large rooms visited were named TheSnake Chamber, The Altar Room, andThe Senate Chamber, because of pecu-liarities they presented; and a clear, run-ning stream of only a few inches in depthand a dozen feet wide was forded, the waterof which was found to be cold and palat-able, with a strong odor of cinnamon.These explorations were continued for fivehours, the party having traveled in thattime, according to the twine they had usedto guide them in the labyrinth, (and fromthe many windings and passage-ways it isnot considered safe to penetrate any consid-erable distance without the use of this meansof finding the outlet again,) nineteen hun-dred yards—something over a mile. Per-haps the most remarkable feature about thecave, says the writer, is the varied and di-versified aspect of the different chambers andpassage-ways, and the fact that the exploreris not confined to any particular route, butafter entering for a distance of one hundred 154 THE PENNSYLVANIA RAILROAD.

She effected her escapefrom the gypsies by taking refuge in the cave.Penetrating to a great distance, and beingunable to return, she perished of starvation.Her bones were found years afterwards.

to the next candy shop. These are little things, it istrue, but the mass of human enjoyment or sorrow, is made upof these self-same little things. A writer well says :— The little things of life have for more eflect upon charac-ter, reputation, friendship, and fortune, than the heartlessand superficial are apt to imagine. They are few, indeed,however rough by nature, who are not touched and softenedby kindness and courtesy. A civil word, a friendly remark,a generous compliment, an affable bow of recognition, allhave an influence; while surliness, incivility, harshness, andill-temptr, naturally enough, produce an efifect exactly to thereverse.

Still we are bound to confess that we are deficient in manyof the little courtesies of life — courtesies that are admirablycalculated to sweeten the intercourse of society, the inter-course of friendly feeling, and the general communion thattakes place, from day to day, between neighbors and com-panions. The excuse with many is, that they have not timeto practise the civilities to which we refer — that they are toomuch engaged in more important matters. Thus a friendlyvisit will uot be repaid, a polite note will be left unanswered,a neighborly call will be disregarded, a pleasant smile will bemet with a cold look of indifference, and a cordial grasp ofthe hand will be responded to with reluctance, if not surprise.All this may seem nothing, and yet the effect upon tbf mind,and the heart, is

JONAS CATTELL. [From the Memoirs of the Gloucester Fox Hunt-ing Club.] There were many distinguished menconnected with the Gloucester Club;but none is more deserving immortalitythan Jonas Cattell! For twenty yearsthis worthy fellow was grand guide andwhipper-in to the Hunters, always athis post, says the memorialist, whe-ther at setting out with the company,leading off, at fault, or at the death.While all the rest rode, he travelled onfoot with his gun and tomakawk, andwas always on hand for any emergency,before half the riders came in sight.His physical strength and activity werealmost incredible. When about fiftyyears of age he ran a foot race fromMount HollJ to Woodbury with an In-dian runner of great celebrity, and cameoff victor. About the same time he wona wager by going on foot from Wood-bury to Cape Island in one day, deliver-ing a letter, and returning in the SBme manner, with an answer, on the dayfollowing.
