A Terrible Adventure on a Prairie.
S. II. Packard, Esq., an Iowa editor und
lawyer, was recently lobtiu a snow storm
between Sioux rapids and Fort Dodge.
About throe hours after he started a hea
vy snow norm burst upon him, accom
panied by high wind from north west.
Knowing the danger of attempting to cross
those large prairies in such a storm, he
turned buck and attempted to retrace
his steps, but soon found that it was im
possible for man or beast to face the storm:
he tlierefoie proceeded on his journey
confident that ho could ride to the next
house (40 miles by night-fall. Hut his
horse having broken through tho ice sev
eral times, became afraid to go upon tho
ice, nnd he was delayed many tunes at
sloughs until night overtook him at a
slough about half way across tho prarie ;
here he found it impossible to induce his
horse to go upon the ice, and tvhile search
ing fur a better crossing, the ice broke
with him and let him into the water above
his knees. He endeavored to get to tho
shore, but the ico broke at every step, nnd
no struggleil on through the ice, snow and
water, a distance of twenty or thirty feet
before ho came to firm ice.
He at once attempted lo remove his
shoes and stocking", but they were so in
cased in ico that it was impossible. Con
vinced that bo must remain where he
was until morning, and that his only safe
ty was in keeping in motion, he commen
ced running upon the ice, and continued
to do so until daylight the next morning,
when having succeeded in cettiii" hi
horse across the slough, he started on
foot, as he thought towards fort Dodge,
The Moveable Festivals of 1859.
It Is well known that Ash Wednesday,
i.iwier, and v hiisunlitle, tlo not occur at
me same dates every year, but Ihatthcv
are variable within certain limits, compris
ing a period ol upwards ol a month. If
the exact elate ol t lie death of our Saviour
were known, there, could bo no doubt
about tho date of Hosier, which regulates
the other moveable holidays; but all we
learn from tradition is that the cmcitiximi
occurred a shoit time after tho vernal
equinox, and immediately alter a full
moon. I he question of fixing the ncriod
of luster was first agitated at the Nicean
Council in the year o'J5. Ascension dav

Hence it follows that no full moon occur

in our century there has been but one

occurred on the Sunday following, (2.'!1.)
In general the circumstances tending to
place LiLster in the month of March are
much rarer than those which make it fall
in April; for, out of the fifty-eight Eas

curred in March. I he Litest date nossi.

The St. Louis JtrpulHaia of tho 25th,
learns by the overland mail, that Major
Heintzleinan, the Indian agent, had been
to tho Mqiave villages in ouest of tho wo
man nnd two children who were captured

Major HeinUleman, who came through

report of the silver mining in Arizona. A
mine in w hich he is interested, some 25
miles west of Tubac, shows abundance of

The Siiirnvii Sanhs or thk Mkhitkr
Raneav. M. Marcel do Serres, a learned
geologist of Montpelier, has just commu
nicated lo tho Academy of Sciences, some
curious facts concerning the "dulcs,"or
shifting sands existing on tho French
Mediterranean coasts. These sands, it
must bo understood, tire first thrown upon
the shore by the sea ; when dry, they uro
carried inland by tho winds, to tho dis
tance of several kilometers, eovorini? fields
and vineyards to the depth of two or Uireo'lins
icei, sunocaung vegetation, nnd transform
ing tho richest vegetation into a desert
waste. Tho only eU'ectual means of coun
teracting this evil, is to plant tamerisks
uiong tne coast, so as to form a barrier
mil instances uro frequent, where neither
plantations nor walls have been suflicient
to prevent the sands from covering roads
nun iiems. Jaist August two houses, sev
eral stories high, about a mile from Agdo
(Ilerault), were completely buried in the
sands. The houses happened to bo unin
habited at tho time, so that no lives were
lost; and, fortunately, a north wind suc
ceeded to the opposite 0110 which had
brought tho sands, and blew them away
again, il. Marcel du Sorres, in studying
this phenomenon, has discovered "that
these slutting sands form two distinct
zones ; the first, coiisistimr of vorv lino
ands, contains very few shells or other
organic matter; the second, 011 the con
trary, contains a large pioportion of shells,
round shingles, nnd fragments of rock.
Tho second zone remains near the coast,
tho former, on the contrary, is carried in
land, as beforo stated. Notwithstanding
their disastrous effect, theso sands, when
mixed with rich mould make an excellent
soil for growing tho vine.

The Mississippi Repp-mated Debt.
The Auditor of Mississippi, a few days ago,
paid $100,000 to Mr. Goodman, President
of tho Central Railroad Company, upon
bonds issued for the Plan tors' Bank many
years ago. It will be remembered that
j thes? Planters' liank bonds are a part of
the repudiated debt that made the Mate
of Mississippi notorious throughout the
world. Tho Louisville Courier says :
Our readers must not infer, however,
that Mississippi intended, by the payment,
to acknowledge and liquidate her repudi
ated debt. This $100,000 was only on a
line financial scheme of Mr. Goodman in
behalf of his railroad. He found out, by
looking into the records, that there was a
fund in tho treasury that could bo gotten
for his road, nnd ho pot it, perhaps, by
making European bond-holders of the re
pudiated bonds subscribe them to his road.
Wo bono ho will continue, this process, j
and gather up all the repudiated bonds of
the State, and get the State to acknow
ledge them on condition that they are
converted into railroad stock within her
money, but ribbons, pinchback pins, ami
other .articles of feminine finery, sure to
tangle girls' eyes. Never turn up your nose
in contempt at rod hair again! It sells
for more ami brings more than any other
hair; a head that gives frequent crojs of
this color, is a source of a fortune to th-i
lucky possessor. Tho market valuo of
hair is as follows: red, black, brown,
blonde. But even their fashion changes !
Fifty years ago, blonde was in the greatest
demand, ami golden blonde commanded
readily eight shillings an ounce, that is,
tivico its weight in silver. It appears that
tho Englis hair has become a great deal
darker than it was formerly, ami this
ciiange is aiinuutea to llio rrcncli wars,
when a great many English men married
Spanish women. Black huiris now the fa
vorite in market, and at least 2OII.00J
'pounds are annually j.u rchaed in tho
French departments I have named. The
prices paid range between ono and five
francs to the pound ; tho "head'' of hair
weighs between ten ounces and ono pound.
The hair is purchased from tho itinerants
by wholesale dealers, who clean it ; when
cleaned it is worth ten francs a pound,
aild when it is ready to bo used on wigs it
is worth between forty francs and eighty
francs a pound. Germany supplies tho
world with blonde hair; the trado is en-
tiruly in tho hands of Dutchmen. London
alone buys 10,000 poundiof hair annually."
