From the Boston Herald, Cape Hattera*. the most dangerous l%ilnt on our Atlantic seaboard, will ceas** to exist as a menace to coastwise navi gation if the present plans of the United States government are caril***! out. For g*neratlons the name of Cape llafteraa ha* been synonymous with storms, shlp wicck and lofr of life All soria of •• have been proposed to minimlie its dangt'is Millions of d)lmrs have be. n spent In attempts to properly light the celebrated P.uinond shoals, which aurround Cap** Hattera I* was found Impossible, after years of libor, to build a ilghthouse there The heaviest an*l stanchest light hd ever constructed was pla .1 .it Dia mor.d shoals, only to he blown away from her giant mush om anclfors. Ami during all ibis w nlle steamers lost • ir bearing-, vessels were driven ashore arid midions of dollars' worth of property and hundreds of lives continued to be lost Kvery winter brought a long record of dirast* rs on Cape HaUara* The sailor coming from San Franrlsc<i dreaded this one rpot more than anv other in the long voyage round the Horn Th** coastwise vessels tried to give it a wide l*erth. But ji luia rep lined as a per manent menace to navigation, and hs done more to injure coastwise oornatrce on ih** Atlantic than any other agency. And now,by nuan* of an ingenious and thoroughly practicable -v**m of inland -finals and channels, the coastwise trade will be enabled to pasa behind Uape llai proteeffd from the fury of he cr.-ean the whole way down the coast by low-lying sand bars The Dismal swamp canal a miserable ditch of comparatively small lmi*ortance, is to he deepened through Its whole length. H*re. bordered by cypress, gum ai.d magnol.a. large coastwise vessels can sail or tow In safefv.

Wh* n th** Inside route is finished, a great advance In coastwise transportation is ex pected to take place In arising out the teims of a hill p*s • I at the lust seaslon of Congress, th* • ngineer r..ri>s of the army is now engag cd in making n preliminary survey for an Inside pnaoage from Uhos.ip* ake hay to Beaufort inlet This will obviate the necessity fur coasting vessels rounding Cape Hattcras. An Inside passage from Boston to Flor ida is believed by official* to be one of the poS'dldiitles of the future The pres ent . lan Is look**! at as the first and m<*M im{M>rtan? step |q this development To a large extent the proposed water way ih a natural one. .ml to flt it for the passage of vessels of the larger class, a* contemplated in the survey now being made, it is simply a matter of dredging channels through the varioim sounds ly ing back of the narrow strip of land w lilch forms Cape Hattera* and the dan gerous coast on Its north and south There are two corps of engineers work ing on the survey, one under MaJ .1 B Quinn, surveying south from Norfolk, along the route of the Dismal Swamp ca nal. which It is proposed to utilize, nnd one under Uapt. E. W Van Lucas, work ing north from Beaufort inlet. It l ex pected that the repons of these officers will be ready to present to Congress when it n* xt meet-., wh*'n an appropriation for beginning the work will be urged.

The l>nm‘tlcntl<n of a Snake. From the Gentleman's Magazine. To carry in one's hand a newly cat ight snake is unpleasant, because in Its fright it emits an effluvium which would dla guat any but srient naturalist*, atwl would, I venture to say, have left Toblt, had he live*! among English meadows, at no loss for a moans Just as efficient as (hose h* used to oca re away the evil -plrit. Nor Is the progress of domestication henceforth encouraging The animal an swers all advance.-* with furious hisses and menacing gesticulations, once a large grass snake, when newly caught flew- at my hand, from which it drew Just a speck of blood. Even this would have been se rious If done by some >f the tribe. But in a few days your ward grow* tranquil, gives o\ er hissing, lo*** other offensive, ness, and may he heid in the hand while It twines its body around the fingers and darts Its tongue in and out We avow have an opportunity of donor examination Certainty its appearance, like trat of many pci* imus flow* r-. !* anowy. Might we not. therefor*, doubt the lnnoc*nc* of the grant- snake? Il* body I* completely clothed with scale-, gray tncllnod to taw ny. which on the back are granular, but broader lower down Here they are met by polished semi-rings, sheathing over on.* another, and usually mcttl***! black n*l ml!k\ white, though they are sometime* uniformly black. Of these there nr.< • bout 170 Th* black I* not mark**d con spicuously. and hare lies the difference, by which this an.ike nnd the adder or viper may easily he dlstlngui*hed; for along the back of the viper runs a zigzag chain of black loxengt? Above he black flank sllf.-e of the gr.ts snake, though not quite corresponding, arc two s<*ts of smaller Mack dashes, which with the other* make a somewhat ringllke appearance, four slits making one ring. Hence doubt less come* one of th* snake*# names. The throat Is Ivorylike, the head brown, and at Its back are four daubs, a yellow and black daub on each side. The eyes have hazel Iridcs, are lkless. and capable of turning through a email angle only Th* yellowish che*k* are .-tri|*e-l with black, and thus the swarthy features are made more expressive. The cloven tongue of Jet Is protruded through an orifice In the Up*, withdrawn into a fleshy sheath, and root ed in the throat. Wh* n active th* snak** darts out. wag*, ami withdraw* this cu rious member every moment, thus un doubted.y invoking suspicion, especially when the tongue is kept steadily out ano it* herbs are in different planes. Aa a matter of fart, the tongue terminates In two harmless hair*. The Jaws are some what bony, their worst features The f-nnkr. therefor* h o reason to make th# most of theatrical bravado, and scar** most j*-op!e, though undoubtedly to Its detriment. \Vniler*>n on llryan.
