A RELIC OF POMPEII. Outside of the Fora Stabiana at Pompeii, in a stratum of cinders have just been found the impressions of three bodies in a tree. Casts taken of them show the bodies to have been those of two men and a woman. One of the men was in a kneeling position, and the other stretched flat on his back. The woman lay face downward with her arms stretched out. The tree, of which casts of foliage and fruit, as well as the trunk, were obtained, was of the species Laurus Nobilis, known to have produced a round-shaped fruit that ripened toward the end of autumn, and, from the form and size of the fruit, it was evidently ripe when the tree was buried, which goes to confirm the theory, that the great catastrophe took place in November of the year 79 B.C., and not in August as has been supposed.
