It would also appear from tbe following, that a similar eruption has occurred at Mount Vesuvius The first symptoms indicating another eruption of Mount Vesuvius were observed on Sunday, the 29th ult, when a tremulous motion of the soil was expe- rienced at Giasse, Piedimonte, and Linguagrossa, situated nearly at the foot of the mountain. Now and then a deep rolling sound was heard the temperature, which had been very warm for several days, suddenly fell, and the sky became overcast. On the following days all these symptoms increased in intensity, and on the 31st a crater opened with a deafening noise at a distance of about 12 miles from Piedimonte. On the 1st there were heavy falls of rain accompanied with thunder, the wind blowing from the north, and rolling sounds underground increasing. Since then four craters more have been formed, all on the eastern sid. of the mountain. The lava has selected the bed of ft dry torrent for its escape, and, owing te the irregulat nature of the soil, has since divided into six streamlets, which occasionally meet again and separate as before according to the obstacles, in the shape of hills or rocks, which they meet on their way. The motion of the lava is much slower than it was in 1852 a house that vei^L OI1'y a distance of six metres from it was not P*b»»Te?'< A P°rtion of a forest belonging to Prince ■ ^as been burnt, together with a park adjoin- 7 j v, to Marquis Del Tosca, and two vine- yards have beq destroyed. But the lava now threatens a village of 400 inhabitants, called Santa Maria Levena, and Piedimonte, further down, is not safe. Meanwhile the authorities are on the alert, all the cisterns have been emptied along the probable course of the lava, because on its approach the water would be converted into steam, and become dangerous to those who might be engaged in saving their property. All the cottages threatened with destruction have been abandoned.
