On my return from the tipper Mississip
pi, I found myself obliged to cross one of
the wide prairies, which in that part of the
United States, vary the appearance of the
couutry. The weather was- fine, all a
round me was as fresh and as blooming
as if it had just issued from the bosom of
nature. My knapsack, my dog, and my
gun, were all I had for baggage and com
pany. But, although well moccasined, I
moved slowly along, attracted by the brill- ,
• iancy of the flowers, and the gambols of
the fawns, around their dams, to all ap

My march was of long duration ; I sawl
the sun sinking beneath the horizon long
before - I could perceive any appearance of
woodland, and nothing in tho shape of Mall
had I met that day. The track which I
followed was only an old Indian path, and
as darkness overshadowed the prairie, I
felt some desire to reach at least a copse,
in which I might lie down to rest. The
night hawks were screaming around me,
• attracted by the buzzing of the beetles,
which form their food, and the distant
howling of wolves, gave me some hope
that I should soon reach the skirts of soino

proved to be a woman, if I might take

should find a cake. But my watch had
,struck her fancy, and her curiosity had
to be gratified by another sight of it. I
took off the gold chain which secured it
around my neck, and presented it to her.
She was all ccstncy, spoke of its beauty,
asked me its value, and put the chain a
round her brawny neck, saying how happy
the possession ofsuch a watch would make
, her. ' Thoughtless; and as I fancicd4ny

attention to hor talk or her movement's. I
helped 'my dog to a goad supper of venison,
and was not long in satisfying the de
mands of my own appetite.
The Indian rose from his seat, as if in
extreme suffering. He passed and re
passed me several times, andonce piddled
me on the side so violently, that the pain
nearly brought forth an exclamation of
anger. I looked at him. His eye met
mine; but his look was so forbidding, that
it struck a chill into the more nervous part
of my system. Ho again seated himself,
drew his butcher knife from his greasy
scabbard, examined' its edge, as I would
' do that of a razor - suspected dull, replaced
and taking his tomahawk from his back,
filled the pipe of it with tobacco, and sent
me expressive glances whenever our host
ess chaneed to have her back towards us.
Never Ontil that moment had my senses
been awakened to the danger which I now
suspected to be about Inc. I returned
glance for glance to my companion, and
rested well assured that,what ever enemies
I might have, he was not one of their num
I asked the woman for my watch, wound
i it up, and under pretence of wishing to sec

A short time had elapsed, when some
voices were heard,and from the corner of!
my eyes I saw two athletic youths making
their entrance, bearing a dead stag on a
pole. They disposed of their burden, and
asking for whiskky, helped themselve , ,
freely to it. Observing me and the woun
ded Indian, they asked who I was, and
why the devil that- rascal (meaning -the
Indian, who, they knew, understood not a
word of English) was in the house. The
mother—for so she proved to be—bade
1 them talk less loudly, made mention of my
watch, and took them to a corner, where
i a conversation took place, the purport ol
which it required little shrewdness in me
to guess.. 1 tapped my dog gently. He
moved his tail, and with- indescribable
pleasure, I saw his fine eye alternately
fixed on me, and raised towardithe trio in
the corner. I felt that he perceived clan

ment, reader, when I saw this incarnate
fiend, take a large carving knife, and go
to a grindstone to whet its edge. I saw
tier pour water on the turning mach.ne,
and watched her working away - with the
dangerous weapon, until the cold sweat
coursed over every part of my body, in
spite of my determination to defend my
self to the very last. Her task finished,
she walked to the reeling ions, and said,
"There, that'll soon • settle him ! Boys,
killyon —,— and then for the wetch."
I turned, cocked' my gun •locks .silently,
touched my faithful dog, and lay ready to
start up and shoot the first who might at

NIAGARA ECLIPSED: The river Shir
hawati, between Bombay Cape and Como
ria, falls into the Gulf of Arabia. The
river is about one fourth of a mile in
width, and in the rainy season some thirty
feet in depth. This immense body ot•
watter rushes down a rocky slope three
hundred feet at un angle of forty-five de
grees, at the bottom of which it makes a
perpsndicular plunge of eight hundred and
tifty feet into a black and disrual abyss,
with a noise like the loudest thunder.—
The whole descent is therefore, eleven
hundred and fifty feet, or several times
that of Ningru. The volume of water in
the latter is somewhat larger than that
of the former,but in depth of descent it will
be seen there is no comparison between
them. In the dry season, the Shirhawati
is % . small stream, and the fall is divided
into three cascades of surpassing beauty
and grandeur. They are almost dissipat
ed and dissolved into mist before reaching
the bApf the • river below.

Lynching of a Woman. in Californa.
A California letter to the Journal ofCom
merce contains the following particulars of
the execution of a young girl at Downie-
She was a Mexican senoritn, witli all
the passions and. frailties which attach
themselves to the race. One day she stab
bed a man, so that he died in a shorAine.
Public opinion varies as td the enormity
of this crime. Some assert that it was a
wanton and treacherous attack; others
consider it to have been on ordinary mur
der, under circumstances of sufficient but
considerable provocation ; while many af
firm that the blow was struck in defence
of her person against a drunken assault.—
The better opinion is, as far ns I can learn,
that the killing was unlawful, but under
palliating circumstances. It is of little
consequence to my present purpose, to ex
amine into the degree of crime. I am mere
ly to relate how a woman was punished
by unlawful hands in this high noon of the
It seems that an example was needed
in Downievillo. Little or no retribution
had thllen upon former murderers in that
vicinity, and it unfortunately happened
that the dead man had many friends in the
city, while the girl elicited no sympatny.
Her nation was despised, and she was of
a character which always draws more
companions than friends in California.—
The many-headed-monster cried "Blood
for blood !"
The Mountain City is situated at the
confluence oftwo branches of the North
Yuba, and is connected with the opposite
bank by n long bridge. The cord was
thrown over a cross-beam in the middle
of the bridge, and thither the infuriated
multitude hurried their frail victim. Her
bearing was haughty and conposed in the
highest degree. She was a beautiful girl,
but neither her beauty nor unusual round
ness of form excited the slightest compas
sion in the majority.
At this point of the procceeding , a young
lawyer mounted the bridge railing and de
nounced the whole atliAir in words ofinere
bitter justice than discretion. Ile was not
suffered to speak long. A. dozen hands
pulled Idea dawn, and as many feet were
vigorously applied to him along the length
of the bridge. When upon the opposite
bank, he was forbidden to enter I)ownie
ville agan, under penalty of being tarred
Even the perpetrators of this outrage
should have been shamed into common
humanity by the next appeal. A physi
cian, well known in the place, states upon
his professional reputation and mast sacred
honor, that the girl was cnciente, and
demanded for her the reprieve which was
always granted by the merciful common
law of England, even in the darkest ages
and most barbarous periods. But no !
Mercy to a murderess ! Time to give birth
to another of the viper's blood ! They hoot
ed at the idea ! The phySician was order
ed to leave town within three days, for
having dared to assert justice.
Meanwhile the girl had been looking on
with the utmost nonchalance. At the fail
ure of this last appeal, a scornful smile
distorted her lip, and she at once began to
perform the last offices for herself. The '
manta was removed from her head, and
given to her paramour, with watch, purse,
and ornaments. Her black hair tell in
masses over her shoulders, but she calmly
grasped the noose, dangling near by, and
passed it around her neck, concealed the
hideous knot beneath the thick fall of her
hair. She made but one request—that'
her hands might bp left untied and free to
give the signal. Strange to say they did
grant her one privilege, but the one which,
in cases where the nerves were not made
of steel, would have been the most inju
She then drew a bunch of cigaritas from
her bosom and distributed them among the
bystanders, reserving one for herself.—
Thus she lighted and half smoked—then
draw it from her lips with—"l would do
it-again, the malidito—l" She did not
finish the sentence, but dropped the cig
arita. This was the signal, and her light
form shot rapidly.;up in
. the .air, hardly
struggling, so powerful was the will that
kept her free arms stiffly -pressed against
her sides. There she hung over that foam
ing river—bet'Ween sky and earth; 'the
mark ofdeepest disgrace upon all our
land. Ever since!that Moment of d4irium,
the citizens of Dotvnieville have been call
ed by press and people, the Downiv Mains."

EIGN AND DOMESTIC INTELLIGENCE:
No expression _that we arc acquainted
with grates so harshly on our ear as that
of ',The Old •Man," when it comes from
the lips of a son speaking of his father.—
A person who habitually uses the expres
sion, Is either intimate with low charac
ters or he does not feel that respect and
deference due from a son to a parent. In
excuse it is said, 'tis but,a joke and means
nothing. If so, it were better not to j'st
on such a subject, and use some expres
sion that does mean something.
" Old man" is used as a term of re
proach, a sort of by,word, and a bugaboo
to scare bad children, and in the manner
used expresses a sort of contempt, or don't
There arc several stages to be gone thro',
before the old man is brought on. Pa,
papa, and father have had their day. As
the young swell lazily rolls his cigar or
quid of tobacco in the corner of his mouth,
and rubs his goose-down chin, and replies
with a curl of the lip, to the gentleman by
whom he is interrogated—"that's nobody
but the old man."
Young chaps that frequent oyster cel
-1 lars, beer-saloons, and fashionable wine,
shops, who can smoke a "regalia," or choir
I "ladies twist," without_making them sick,
or walk a crack with three glasses of
champaigne ; these are the sprigs who talk
of "the old man" who don't know they're
e have also heard these same char
acters speak of their mothers as the "old
woman !" True, it is no heinous: offence,
yet it shows as plainly as any other swag
ger, what company they have kept, and
the estimate they place upon their parent's
love and care for so many years.
An immig - ant Just arrived across the ,
plains, gives the following description of
the memorable '‘jarnado del muerto," on
which so many thousands of animals, and
so many persons oldie last year's emigra

From the sink of Hutnbolt river across the
desert to Carson river, my heart was sick
' eded at seeing the great destruction of pro
perty, viz : wagons, carriages, and bug
gies,dead horses, mules, and cattle, whose
carcasses lie thick all over the ground,
in a state of preservation, the skins, and
a good deal of the flesh, being dried to the,
bones—the water, marshes, and air, being;
so strongly impregnated t with alkali, that j
it has a tendency to keep off the devouring
insects and birds of prey. But the worst
is not half told yet: to see every; two or
three hundred yards a grave, where a'
father, mother, brother, or sister, has been
buried ; but, ere the train is out of sight,
the corpse is disinterred by the prowling
wolf, or savage Indian—the bones left to
bleach upon the great American desert.—
Although I am - rather a-hardened sinner,
yet, when I saw the scene as just deserib

and feel myself more submissive to that
mighty and powerful God who rules the
Some day during the past summer, a
stranger stopped at one of the watering
places on the tuountain south of this place.
After his arrival there he was taken sick,
and for several days he was apparently
deranged. On his recovery he informed
the proprietor of the house that during his

The Rights Of Women.
BY MRS. L. 11, BIGOURNEY.
There is much clamor in these driye of
progress respecting a giant or new
or an extension of' privilliges for our sex.
A powerful moralist has said that "In con
tentions of power, both the philosphy and
poetry of life are dropped and trodden
Sown." - Would not a still greaterloss ac
crue to domestic happiness, and to the in
terests of well balanced society,should tho
innate delicacy and prerogative of woman,
as woman, be. forfeited or sarcificed
"I have given her as a helpmate," said
the voice that cannot err, when it spake
unto Adam in the cool or the day, amid the
trees of Paradise. Not as a toy, a clog.
a wrestler, a prize fighter. No, a help
mate, such as was fitting for man to des
ire, and for woman to become.
Since the Creator assigned different
spheres of action for the different sexes,
it is to be presumed, form this unerring
wisdom, that there is work enough in each
department to employ them, nnd that the
faithful performance of that work will bo
fru the benefit of both. If he has made
her one of the priestesses of the inner
temple, committing to her charge its un
rovealed sanctities, why should she seek
to mingle in the warfare that may thunder
at its gates or rock its torrents. Need she
be again tempted by pride or curiosity, or
glowing words, to barter her own Eden?
TheJtiqe nobility of woman is to keep
her own sphere, and to adorn it; not like the
comet, daunting nnd perplexing other sys
tems, but as the pure star, which is first to
light the day, and the last to leave it. If
she shares not the fame of the ruler and
the bloodshedder, her good works, such as
"become those who profess godliness,
though they leave no 'footprints on the sands
of time," may find record in the "Lamb's
Book of Life."
Great Whcat and Corn Statca
A'' correspondent of the Pittsburg Ga•
zette, writing from Washington, says—
" From the abstracts or statistical returns
already prepared at the Census office, it
appears that Pennsylvania in 1850, was
the largest' wheat producing state of the
Union, I have had the curiosity to com
pare the six most prominent states in re•
spect to this crop, and give them below;
with the crop of each as shown by the

off the palm, for five states stand almost in
a line in regard to' this important staple.
