A HINDOO SACRIFICE.
The following aooount of the sacrifice of a
Hindoo woman, on the funeral pile of her
husband, is sit . extract of a letter from a young
lady in Calcutta, to her friends in this coun
try. The writer is a native of Pittsfield,
Massachusetts, where her parents now reside.
CALCUTTA, June 18.
I open my letter, my dearest friends, to tell
you rhave witnessed one of the most extraor
dinary and horrid scenes 'ever performed by
human beings, namely : the self-immolation
'of a woman on the fgneral pile of her hus
band. The dreadful sacrifice has made an
impression on my mind, that years will not
efface. I thank my God that I was horn in a
Christian land and instructed in the Christian
This event is so 'recent, I can hardly com
pose myself sufficient to relate it. Last night
I could not Close my eyes, no* could I drive
this martyred Woman from my recollection. I
am almost sick to-day, and I am sure you will
pot wonder at it. But this ceremony is so
much Celebrated, acid by illy couotryften so
much doubted, that''•l was resolved to see if
such "deeds could- be." I have seen; and
the universe would not induce me to be pre
sent on a similar occasion—l cannot realize
what I have seen—it seems like a horrible
Yesterday morning at seven o'clock, this
woman was brought in a palanquin, to the
place of . sacrifice. It is on the banks of the
Ganges, only two miles from Calcutta. Her
husband had been previously brought to the
river to expire. His disorder was hydropho
bia—(think of the agony this must have occa
sioned him.) He had now been dead twenty
four hours, and no person could prevail on the"
wife to save herself. She had three children,
whom she committed to thacare of her mother.
A woman, called to be undertaker, was pre
paring the pile. It was composed..of bamboo,
firewood, oils, rosin and a kind of flax, alts.
gether very combustible. It was elevated
above the ground, I should say twenty inches,
and supported by strong stakes. The dead
body was lying on a rude couch; very near,
covered with a white cloth. The oldest
child, a boy of seven years, who was to light
the pile, was standing near the corpse. The
woman eat peffeetly unmoved during all the
preparation ; apparently at prayer, and count
ing a string of beads, which she held in her
hand. She was just thirty years old; her hus
band twenty-seven years older.
The government threw every obstacle in the
way of this procedure. They were not strong
enough to resort to violent measures to pre
vent this abominable custom. Nothing but
our religion can abolish it, and I do not, be
lieve there is a single particle of Christianity
in the breast of a single native in all India.
Theee_obstaeles deiayed the ceremony until
five o'clock, when the permit from one of the
chiefjpiges arrived. Police officers were eta
gried lirevent anything like compulsion,
Arid 1 0 stta`e the woman, at the last moment,
should she desire it. The corpse was now
placed on the ground, in an upright posture,
and clean linen crossed round the head, and
about the waist. Holy water was then thrown
over it by the child, and afterward oil by the
Brahmins. It was then placed upon the pile,
upon the left side. The woman now left the
palanquin, and walked into the river sup
ported by her brothers, who were agitated, and
required more support than herself. She was
divested of all her ornaments; her hair hang
ing dishevelled about her face, which expressed
perfect resignation_ Her forehead and feet
*ere stained with a deep red. the bathed in
the river, and drank a ittle water, which wag
the only nourishment she received after her
husband's death. An oath was administered
by the attending Brahmins, which is done by
putting the hand in holy water, and repeating
from the Shaster a few lines. The oath was
given seven times. I forgot to say the child
received an oath before the corpse was re
moved. The brothers also prayed over the
body, and sprinkled themeelvee with consecra
ted water. She then adjusted her own dress,
which consisted of long clothes wrapped round
her form, and partly over her , head, but not so
as to conceal her face. She had in her band
a little box, containing parting gifts, which she
presented to her brothers, and tie the Brah
mins, with the greatest composure. Red
strings were thew fastened round her wrists.
Her child now put a little rice in her mouth.
which was the last thing she received. She
raised her eyes to Heaven several times during
the river ceremonies, which occupied ten or
twenty minutes. She took no notice of her
child, having taken leave of her female friends
and children early in the morning. A little
cup of consecrated rice was placed by the child
at the head of the corpse. She now walked to
the pile, and bent with lowly reverence over
the feet of her husband, then, unaided, she
passed three times around the pile. She no'
seemed excited by enthusiasm ; some said of
a religious nature, others, of affection for the
dead. Ido not pretend to say what motive
aotuated her; but she stepped up the pile with
apparent delight, unassisted by any one, and
threw herself by the side of the body, clasping
his neck with her arm. The corpse was in the
most horrid 11 utrid state. She put her face
close to his; a cord was slightly passed over
both ; light fagots and straw, with some com
bustible rosin, were then put upon the pile, and
a strong bamboo pole confined the whole ; all
this was done by her brothers. The child then
applied thikfire to the head of the pile which
was to consume both parents. The whole was
instantly on fire. The multitude shouted, but
not a groan was heard from the pile. I bop*
and trust this poor victim expired immediately.
She undoubtedly did, without one struggle.—
Her feet and arms were not confined ; and
after the straw and fagots were burnt, we saw
them in the same condition she had placed
TEE LYTTLETON GHOST.
The IJyttletou ghost story is not new, bat
this version, direct from Mrs. Noses manu
script, differs somewhat from that in Hayward :
" This story I heard even before the event
happened, but so did many people. My first
husband, Henry Thrale, was intimate with Lord
Westcote, uncle to young Lyttleton. His picture
hung i n our lib rary , an d be often dined and
slept at Streatham Park. Lord Sandy's hung
next him; they were old college friends, both
with each other and with the master of the
house. To him Lord Westoote came one morn
ing, and said his nephew bad somewhat dis
ordered his spirits by relating to hith that, as
he lay in bed the night before, he observed a
small bird rustling in his , curtains, and on en
deavoring to drive it off he saw a female figure,
white in her appet4ranee, stand at the bed's
foot. 'What,' said he, 'is yor bitthiess tier. t •
T 9 bid you propero for death, my WM,

the reply; ' you will soon be called for. ' How
soon I" cried Lyttleton, ' in three years time
Three Nara P said she, three days r and
vanished. The valet, Mr. Williams, was soon
rung for, and he told the tale exactly as his
lord had done, which,' said the uncle, is my
reason for believing it; the young man, though
my dear. brother's son, is such a liar !' To dear
Lord Bandys the same story went the same
morning. He was mote a thinking being than
Lord, Westootitt-, Yonhad better change your
mode of life,' iiibds , his - commentary ; if this
means anything, it k i s points af your lordship's
reforniation, and you: should not tall such stories
merely to-laugh at us.' The appointment for
Pit Place, however, went on. Captain Aysoough
and some demi-rep cousins, Mrs Flood and the
two Miss Aniphletts were the party, which was
joined by a rake or two more, to all of whom
the vision had been talked. of. Well, they, the
merry makers, went on to Woodoote, and passed
their Vime.gaily till, after supper, Lord LyCtle
ton said : ' All this is very charming, but this
is the third day of my holidays. I have a
speech to make on Wednesday, and wish to
look it over, 88 be merry and never mind my
absconding. I must read a little to-night, and
as for the visionary figure, I have already
bilked the bitch.' No, no, my lord,' was the
universal cry. Not till twelve o'clock.' He
took his leave laughing, and bid his valet get .
some nice rolls for the morning breakfast. They
were provided, the man said, end Lord Lyttle

GREAT IrCITEHENT AT DETROIT.
ALL ABOUT A HIPPOPOTAMUS.
Prom the Detroit Free Press
It seems that in the transit of the circus
now performing here from Buffalo to this city,
it became neseuary to send the elephants and
hippopotamus off a 'Propellor, and they were
accordingly shipped on the S. D. Caldwell.
On Monday afternoon, as the steamenear

ourred, which nearly resulted in the escape of
the huge behemoth or hippopotamus belong
ing to G. C. Quick, Esq., and at present term
ing one of the attractions of G. F. Bailey's
The huge beast was shipped from Buffalo on
board the steamer, and as it was impossible to
get his immense cage on board, that was sent
by land, while his Behemothship, accompanied
by Ali, the Egyptian, his captor and keeper,
proceeded by water to Detroit. During the
voyage it WOO noticed that the animal looked
longingly toward the water, as though he
would have given one of his eye teeth for a
plunge into the depths of the lake and ramble
about its unexplored bottom. No one sup
posed, however, that he would yield to his
ambitious tastes, and so no extra watch was
set upon him. ,
As the steamer neared the city, and When
about three miles below the fort, a crash and
then a splash were .leard from the side of the
boat toward the American shore. Every body
rusffed to the spot. The place where the hip
popotamus had been confined was empty. The
beast, no longer able to resist the temptation,
had burst his bonds and plunged into the river,
resolved on an aquatic etoursion.
The owner, who was on board, looked the
picture of despair. Forty thousand dollars,
to say nothing of a large amount of prospec

Ali, the - Egntian keeper, he was nearly

head of the huge beast appeared above the

dog and hippopotamus reached the American
shore in safety.
Ali was not long after, and the animal was
no sooner on terra firma than the Egyptian,
armed with a small raw hide, which he had ta
ken with him, jumped on the beach, and, going
up to the animal spoke a few words in the
Egyptian tongue, gave him a few smart cuts
over his ponderous rump with the raw hide,

ROMANCE OF REAL LIFE.
The Civil Tribunal of the Seine yesterday
gave judgment in an action brought by the
heirs of Pierre Lonstanau, formerly general
issimo of the armies of the Mahrattas in the
East Indite, against the representatives of M.
Lepine, jeweller to Napoleon 1., to recover the
sum of 600,000 f., the value of a ruby which
°sacral xdoustau.w4.o4l. intrusted for sale to M.
Levine. The plaintiffs also demanded dama
ges to the amount of 200,000 f. In opening the
case, the counsel.for the plaintiffs gave a long
account. of the adventures of Pierre Loustau-
Li b% who woo a eetteo of a village at cue foot
of the Pyrenees, which he left when 4hite a
young man, in 1777, during the excitement
caused by the Amerisan War of Independence,
with the intention of seeking his fortune in
America. Not being able, however, to find a
vessel for that destination, he took his pas
sage to the East Indies, on board a ship car
rying an envoy from the King of France,
charged to conclude, with an East Indian po
tentate, an offensive and defensive alliance
against the English, and landed at a port in
the Mahratta territory, not far from Bombay.
The Emperor of the Mahrattas had just been
assassinated, and two princes disputed the
throne, one of whom was supported by the
French and, the other iv the English. Lone
taunau immediately determined to join the for
mer, and obtained a letter of recommendation
from the French envoy. His offered services
were declined on account of his youth. He
then determined to serve as a volunteer s and
in the course of the war he distinguished him
self so muck as to be intrusted with the com
mand of a detachment, at the head of which
he gained an advantage over the English, for
which the prince rewarded him with a horse
richly caparisoned and a sum of 5,000 rubies.
He afterwards obtained a high command,
and afterwards greatly contributed to the
euooceeful Inoue of an important battle, da
ring which he lost his left hand. He had a
silver hand made to replace it, and the very
first time he appeared at the head of his troops
with this new hand, an Indian priest, falling
on his knees before him, declared that the will
of fate was accomplished, for that an ancient
prophecy had declared that the Mahratta Em
pire would attain the highest degree of power
when its armies should be commanded by a
stranger from the far west with an invincible
silver hand. From that time Loustattnan was
regarded as the first subject in the empire,
and became generalissimo. He held that high
post for 18 years, during which he amassed
The love of his native land, however, was
still strong within him, and he resolved to re
turn home. He accordingly transmitted his
fort,. -A. amounting to about 8,000,000 f., to

and soon after toolt - hia, derpeature, receiving,
as a farewell gift from the Prince --the very
ruby for the recovery of which the present
proceedings were instituted. On leaving India,
his good fortune abandoned him, for, after
narrowly escaping shipwreck, he arrived in
France to find that his eight millions, which
had been converted into assignats, were then
worth only 220.000 f. With this remnant he
bought some ironworks near the Spanish fron
tier, but his establishment was destroyed, in
1808, by Spanish guerrillas. He then came to
Paris to sell his gems, and intrusted the ruby
in question to M. Lepine. On his return to
the Pyrenees, he was captured by some Spanish
partisans and detained for a long time a priso
ner in a small .island of the Mediterranean.
from which he at last escaped by swimming to
a passing vessel, bound for the Levant. He

Gen. Loustaunau was received into a French
charitable . establishment, where he remained
till his decease. His representatives are now
in the depth of poverty, and reclaim the de
posit made by their ancestor. The counsel
for the defendant admitted that the ruby had
been intrusted to Lepine, but declared that
when estimated by competent judges it was
found to be worth only 6,000 f., at which price
it had been purchased as a present for the Em
press Josephine, and the proceeds had been
paid either to Loustaunau himself or hie credi
