A VALUABLE TAN YARD
-AT HARPER'S FERRY, FA.
THE subscribers will lease for one or niOre•
.years, their valuable Tan Yard, with all
its appendages. It is one of. the best locations
in Virginia for carrying on the business on an
extensive scale, as there is abundant room and
the materials are ample. A number of the Vats
are undercover, and all the buildings are ot the
most suitable kirid—besides the grinding of Bark
(which can be got convenient and at fair prices,)
is done by water power.
Any quantity ot Hides can.bc procured in the
neighborhood, as there is no other tannery with
in' .miles of the pla6c—-and there is also
every facility for getting hides from the cities,
and sendingjtheni.lo..mai!ketAvhen-tanned r-cMtli
'er by rati road or canal. There is, likewise,; a
demand at this place for a large quantity of
Leather annually by the Government.
Possession will be given immediately.

' Quick Work.-~- A young lady was passing
through Cornhijl’during the cold weather a
bout the latter part of last month, when the
side walks were slippery with ice) and while
gazing too intently on a print in one of "the

although in the most graceful manner possi

vainly endeavored to save her from falling.
With commendable gallantly, however, he

' BURNING AN INDIAN GIRL.
Council Bluffs, Oct. 15, 1838.
The Sioux and Pawnees only 160 miles
! from here arc in constant, hostility. This
. war has continued about 200 years. So the
. Indians hcie t (thc Pottawattamics) say. ,
The PaWnees'in a war expedition into the
Sioux country last February, took prisoner
a Sioux girl only 14 years ohl.whpm they
kept about two months, until corn planting,
and fattened her as they would a hog. They'
then determined to make a sacrifice of her.
This they kept to themselves. Two days
before the sacrifice a council of eighty of the
warriors and head men of the nation met to
see whether they could accept the offers of
two traders of. the American fur company'
who offered them valuable presents if they
would release her to them, so that they
might let her return home. But all would
not do. A majority of the council was for
a sacrifice, of course those in favor of her
release could do_nothing.
At the' breaking up of the council, the
prisoner was brought out and accompanied
by the whole council,, was led from house to
house, when they gavejier a small billet of
Wood and a little paint which she handed to
the warrior next her, and he.passed it On to
the next until every wigwam had contribu
teiUsome wood and some paint. On the 22d
of April she was led out to be sacrificed,
but not until she came upon the ground did
she conjecture her- fate. .They had chosen
the place between two trees which grew
within five feet of each -other. They then
made her ascend the three bars tied across
from tree'to tree, her feet resting An the
bars below, where a slow fire kindled be-,
neath would just reach her feet.' Two war
riors then mounted the bars, and there,
standing one bn each side of her, held -fire
■under her arm pits, until she was, almost
dead; Then at a given signal they all shot
arrows in her boily so thick that hardly a
pin could be placed between them. 'The
arrows were immediately taken from her
flesh and it was all cut on her bones in pie
ces not larger than half a dollar, and put in
baskets. All this was done before she Was
quite dead, Then the principal chief took
a piece of the flesh and squeezed .it until a
drop of blood fell upon the corn,that was
just planted, and this was done to all' they
had m the ground. _
This is flic way they treat, prisoners of
war out here. The foregoing was told mq
by a trader of indisputable veracity, who
was on the. ground at the time. In June
last, the narrator’s wife’s-brother was taken
prisoner by the Sioux -arid treated in the .
I have visited the Ottoc.v 8 miles from
here, and have been, forcibly struck with
their .superstitious burials, of the dead.—-
When a-warrior of note dies, they kill one
of the host .horsesof tliemitionon his grave
and then cut off the tail and tie it to a pole
15 feet high and there leave it. They bc-t
lieve the spirit of,the horse will serve; the
spirit of the warrior.in the next world..
