A Lovely Woman's Kiss
By as Eatkuaiastic
. Young Man.
I'vo bariganted on luxuries,
Produced in every clime ;
I've feasted on rich turtle soup,
And supped , on optersprime,; ,
But nothing so delicious is,
Within a world like this,
As soft caresses, seasoned by •
A lovely woman's kiss, .
I've gloated o'er the'festive board,
And drank rich draughts of wino—.
I've listened at the opera,
To melody divine ; •
But, oh I I itever, never met,
Such sweet excess of bliss,
As thrills the soul, when lips roceiie
A lovely woman's kiss. • '
In glittering halls of splendor rare,
I';rf•assed themiduight:
In iens beautiful and fair,
lye wandered 'mid the flOwers,;
But there's a dearer joy, titan these—
A joy I.would nut
A heavenly raptuye which is found
in i'lovely woman's kiss. ••
In my tuft hours, when death draws near,
In darknecs and in gloom, • •
May woman ' s smile my pathway cheer,.
And light me to the tomb ;
isid when my soul shall take its flight
To other worlds than this,
Ilia ; it be, walled to the skies
By lovely woman's kiss.

In she Fall of 1853. a party of one tribe
built their cabins on the banks of Maple
river, and a party of the *other tribe, a
bout eighty.itt number, encamped in what
is now the town of Dallas. It is.unneces

suffice it to say that - the days were spent
in hunting, and tho nights in drinking

'and fearing the wrath of his tribe, he fled
'towards the other encampment.

remains of the poor squaw were found, sod

neighbors—he was found, apprehended.'
and iu solemn council condemned to the

of their kin. It was a slow, torturing,
-cruel death. A liateitet was put iu the
victim's hands, he was led to a largo log
that was hollow, and made to assist in fix

ting into it some (bonne° on the top; in
two places. about the length of a man a-
part ; then slabbing off, and digging the I
hollow until larger, so as to admit his bo
dy. This done, he was taken back and
tied fast to a tree. Then they smoked and
drank of the "fire water," and when even
ing came, they kindled large fires around
loot. at sumac distance off, but so that they
would shine full upon him. And now
,commenced the orgies—they drank to' in

Some folks are in the habit of talking In
their sleep, and Miss Betsey Wilsoo was
of that number, T his peculiarity she ac
cidently revealed to Jediah Jenkiris in a
careless conversational way. Jediah had
had just finished tho recital of a matri•
menial dream, in which the young lady
and himself figured MI hero and heroine,
he having invented the same, for the sake
of saying at conclusion that it was "to good
to be true," and thus, by speaking inpar
ables, assuring the damsel of what he dare
tint speak plainly.
"I never dream," said BetseY, 'but
sometimes talk half of the night, and tell
everything I know in my sleep." •
"You don't say so." .
"Yes; I can never have a secret from
mother; if she wants to kontv anything
she pumps me alter I've gone , to bed
and 1 answer her questions as honestly as
if my life depended on it. That was
tke reason,l wouldn't go to ride the other
night, I knit'w she would find it out—it is
awful, provoking."
