A Curious Prophecy.

In August, 1857, the Bavarian Allgeraein Zeitung printed a remarkable prophecy, wluch had been made by an _old hermit many years before. In it the rise of Napoleon 111 was clearly outlined, as were also the. AustroPrussian and Franco-Prussian wars and the Commune of Paris. He told how the death of Pope Pius would occur in 1876 „ ' or 1877, and would be followed by a Turko-Russian war, being but slightly wrong in either prediction. He said that Germany would have three . Emperors in one year before the end of . the century, which was verified tothe letter. He.'missed^it once, at least, fax the number of United States Presidents that were to die by assassination, which was remarkably close, to say the least. He said that when the Twentieth- cen- -' fcury opened, Manahattan Island and the whole of New York city would he submerged in the waters of the Hudson, East river and the bay ; Cuba will break in two, and the west half and the city of Havana find a watery resting-place. Florida and Lower California are to ' "* break loose from the main land and carry , their load of human freight to the bottom "'■ of the sea. ! The twenty-fifth is to be the last of the United States Presidents, and Ireland is to be a Kingdom and England a republic by the end of the century. The United States are to be divided and i" San Francisco, Salt Lake City, New Orleans, St Louis, Washington, and Boston are to be made capitals. There should be some consolation to the Mormons, in this, if not for other parts of 1 the Union. To return to Europe. The end of the century will not find either Italy or France upon the maps^ and Berlin will have been .totally destroyed by an earthquake.
