PRAIRIE AND MOUNTAIN LIFE..' •
THE ERTI!tO-PAN LAMP.
Jo:: Day was—er, we might say, is—some what of
a famous fellow among the Shawnees. He owns on
tolerably tight and comfortable log house, besides se
veral large inclosed fields, doorless outbuildinge; . &e;
and hit dress at the soiree was tilutgether the Most
showy:to be seen. He wore a feather head dress of
dasslinclets, little strings of bells around his wrists j
NM . dui:Ades, a calico hunting shirt fringed all over, slid l
wattald treck cloth , of some broad figure and fanei-
fel - Material. He was the best dancer among all • the
- seta that we saw, showing more whim and conceit in
the style of hia contortions than all the rest—the whole '
affitir 'With the men seeming to be an exhibition of
sastanapotaneteue extravagance. Joe had an easy, self
coafident, devil-may-care swagger, as be marched out
•fne tba dance, and looked round on the women, such
tams-may often be seen worn by a German or Italian rus
tic when taking his partner round the waist fora waltz.
He was, indeed, atall, straight, good looking man, for
an Indian, with only a little more of the devil in his
eye, or rather a different sort of devil, than was com
mon among his neighbors.
A son of Tecumseh was present—a better looking
Man by fax than Joe Day, though his superiority was,
perhaps, ant such as an Indian would allow, consist
more of the dress, air and manner of a white man,
than any characteristics of the nail warrior. Young
Tecumseh wore a well fitting and chin looking frock
coat and pantaloona cf blue cloth, a hat, vest, and
black silk handkerchief around his neck. His hair
was only long enough to curl gracefully under his hat
and about his neck, and the only eccentricities he ex
hibited, that would arrest observation should he walk
up Chartres streetto-morrow, were a silken sash wro't
with beads, which ho wore around 'the waist. and a
blark ribbon four inches wide wound around and left
flowing from his hat. -
Learning that Jon 'Day could speak some English,
we applied to him to furnish us with supper and shel
ter fur the night, which he agreed to'do, and about ten
o'clock in the-evening we were summoned to the ban
quet. Several Indians bobbed entreat uses we gro
ped our way into Joe's dark and smoky domicil, and
seven of us were soon seated on logs, benches and old
barrels around a three legged affair of a table, that com
pelled the guest at the dangerous corner to eat with one
hand and make a leg of his left arm. Coffee was ser
ved Of U 3 scalding hot, iu a large bowl, a small bowl, a
pewter mug and a broken tea cup. Two of us got the
small bowl, three shared the contents of the large one,
and the mug and tea cup served the other two. 0.
Dickens! what a supper! and what a scene! We had
no light save whatglimmered through clouds of smoke
that -cants pulling round the dingy apartment from a
huge black fit© place. We had found out, by feeling
with our fingers, that some rib,' of some animal were
•on the table; but only one man had found a fork, and
he could not carve, being the very man who was ma
king a table leg of his arm. Neither would he give up
the fark, unless somebody would give him a knife, as
three had got hold of knives and be had none.
At length Joe Day was mada to understand that we
wanted light, and hu soon partially relieved us from
this difficulty in the fallowing novel manner. Lard oil,
spirit gas, and all the other inventions fur illuminating
the world, that has flashed and - Cornacated from Yan

,pared with this idea of Joe. In a few minutes he ap
geared, holding a frying pan over our heads, from
.which a stream of light went up end a stream of grease
came down, to the great consternation of us all! it was
,plain that our only chance to still our cravingappetites
was to seize on what was before us, sad perhaps to de

were rattling about him as he moved. His wild, mis
chievous eye was glaring upon us from under the frying
pan, and there was something in his face that made us
fancy he was nut over pleased with our presence. En

"Turned you out of house andhume."
. Wq had every reason to believe that Joe understood
very well whet we said, so that, his gruff and abrupt
monosyllable seamed most suspiciously uncourteoay.
During all this our curiosity endeavored to pierce
**smoky gloom around, to get some idea of the place

was old Jeri& face under the frying-pan. Some low

When we got seats again in the ball-room, an old
Chief, called Pi-aged, was ' , main the dancers, and
the sport was going on with increased excitement—
for it was getting late, and it was evident that whiskey
had been going round. Whiskey is forbidden among
them, and a heavy tine is exacted by Government from
anybody caught selling it to them. A Shawnee caught
drinking is also compelled to tell who sold him the li
quor, or pay a penalty, so that they can only obtain
drink clandestinely, as they do, however, contiguallv,

COMMERCIAL LAW CASE.
au the United States Circuit Court, sitting in New
York. the following case was decided a few days since: !
"Richard and Benjamin Kidd, (of Liverpool) vs.
Samuel Swartwout. This was an action to recover
• back the duties on several shipments of American
wheat and flour, which were paid tinder protest, they I
being by an act of Congress exempt from he payment
of duty It appears that, during the collectorship of
Mr. Swartwout, Messrs. Grinnell, Minturn, & Co..
shipped several parcels of wheat and flour to Messrs.
Kidd. the plaintiffs, some of which were sent back to
this cot nary.. There was no question tt the custom
house but that it was the same wheat and flour; but Mr.
Swattwout concluded, that t'y passing into foreign
bands, it became denationalized, and, in crunseqnence,
exacted the duties, which were paid under protest.—
The onlyquestion in the present action is, whether
the wheat and flour, by passing iato foreign hands a
broad, lost the character of American produce, and
were liable to duty.
•thadge Betts charged, 4111 t the case /rested on this
question,which was simply one of law. The defeud

denationalized, and could nut be imported free of duty.
The 'Zortrt, however, thought otherwise. Congress
had in view the protection of an article because of its
Origin, and not because it was the property of American
.or foreign owners, and, under that view, be consider..
duties improperly exacted.

THOMAS PHILLIPS, ItDITOSt.
PITTSBURGH, WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 8
Ho*. HARMAR DCEST---HON.
We observe by the Pennsylvania Inquirer of last Tues
day, that the Hor. HARKAA DZllNT,spokent of as the
whig candidate for Governor of Pennsylvania, or the
candidate of the whig party for Vice President on the
ticket with HENRY CLAY, at a "Grand Whig Rally."
in Philadelphia, oe Wednesday evening, was introduc
ed to the meeting and cordially welcomed."
r .Irn irks," the In pirer states, " were encour
aging as to the condition of popular opinion in the
western peut : of Pennsylvania, whose people he des
cribed Iss being well acquainted with the worth and
services of Henry Clay, and eager to attest their at
tachment to him at the palls." We will ask the pen- j
ple of western Pennsylvania, and the wbigs of Phila.
delphia in particular, to read the following letter of this
same Hen. Mr. Denny, when he represented this dia
-1 triet in Congress, to a gentleman in this city, and pub
lished in the Pittsburg! Times of the 20:11 February,
1833, and more recently in thn Pittsburgh Gazette,
both opposition prints. This letter was written a few
days after Mr. CLAY introduced his celebrated
"Compromise Bill." At that time it will be observed
G 33. JACESOM was fi.r "the principle of diserimina
tiors"—so were "Mr. VAN 1315ItliN ' S friends," Mr.
WYBYTIIR for the " protective policy," and CLAY fur
any policy that would make him President. "He
left his tariff' friends, and united with Calhoun"—
" abandoned discrimination" and went " further than
some of the Southern gentlemen weall have insisted
on." Notwithstanding this recorded opinion of Mr.
Denny in relation to the conduct of Mr. ,CLAY, he
makes emission to Philadelphia and assures his whig
brethren there, that "the whigs of Western Pennsylva
nia would give a good accottet of themselves in 1844;"
that the people there were "well acquainted with the
worth and services of HYNRY CLAY. " If Mr.
DesaY wrote the truth in 1833, bow could he as a
conscientious man, in the face of his mast positive
charge then made against the integrity of Mr. CL•Y,
pledge the support of his former constiluenti in his
favor. Can he take this lettslllo his hand and go
amlng our manufacturers, and ask them to support
a man who will trifle with a measure, ars permanen
cy of which they deem all i n?art sit to their interest
If what he then wrote was false, his duty as a christian
is to be quick to repair the injury done. to make a
-1 tenement fur the crime by recantation as public as
the charge itself.
What riht has Mr. Denny to pledge the support
of Western Pennsylvania for a man who eompromiied
the Ta:i f, wan "re.l i:•d the did o i pro.e •ti arti
cles to 20 per cent. to be no higher than those on oth
er articles; who put a " taz. of 23 per cult. ai valo
rem,' on the "tea and coffee" of the poor man, then
free from duty, and who, when onr representative,
Mr. 'RATIN. was stro;;!in; ftt an nnpropriation for
the erection, in Pittsburgh, of a N tval Hospital, op
posed it not with arguments, but the stale Slang of
eaitetn Coasters. that "our risers were dry one half
of the year and frozen the other."
In his new born zeal in the Clay es Mr. Dmw
should be careful in his assurances that this pe )ple wil l
support a roan, who (if Mr. Denny is to be believed)
in 1333, compromised their interests to his ambitious
purposes, and more recently in the Senate of the Uni
ted States, ridiculed their pretentiuns to an appropri
atinn of public money for a charitable purpose• It ap
pears, however, that the whips of Philad•'lphia at this
meeting, declared their preference for JOl4/1 SER.JEAST
as their choice for the Vice Presidency, thus knocking
from the grasp, so far as Eastern Pennsylvania is con
cerned, of onr modest townsman, his chance for one
of the two places he is fishing for, and to say the least
of it, treating him with great discourtesy. He pledg
ed the sup,tort of this people of Western Pennsylvania
to Mr. CLAT, and certainly can control it in his ow•n
favor, and may yet succeed over Mr. Sergeant.
" WASIIINOTON, Feb. 14, 1833.
From the proceedings in the Senate you will see that
Clay has left his Tariff friends and has united with
Calhoun. The project submitted by Mr. Clay is
believed to have previously received the approbation
of Mr. Calhoun. SONIC THINK IT ORIGINAILD WITH
THAT INDIVIDUAL. The friends of the protective
policy, now rally around Mr. Webster,—his resolu
tions which you will find in the Intelligencer of to-clay,
contain the true principles of the American system,
and upon these the friends of American industry
here are determined to stand. Mr. Clay's propo
sition goes further than some of the Southern gentle.
men would have insisted on!! lie abandons the
discrimination. The duties on the protected arti•
ties are to be reduced to 20 per cent. and to be no
higher than those imposed on other articles. Tca
and coffee, which are now free, are to be again snbject
to duties of 20 per cent, ad valorem, after 1842. It
is said General Jackson will not agree to abandon
the principle of discrimination, neither will MI. Van
Buren's friends. Yours, sincerely,
Er Mr. RUSSELL ERRIETT and the editor of the
American have "reliant," and are belaboring each oth

We are much surprised at this quarrel as the prin
cipal parties were formerly on the most friendly terms,
we believe, and went heart and hand in support of
some of their candidates.
The dialogue in JAYNES' office is likely to be the
cause of considerable public discussion. By the by,
talking about dialogues, could not some of the parties

of the whole export of the country, and more than

States, from their kcal situation, export a large a

This splendid steam Frigate, now at Philadelphi a,
has been visited bathe ladies and gentlemen of that ci
ty. The United States Gazette dfteribes her cabin as
follows: Around this reisenmast is disposed • magnifi
cent side-board. half of which stands in the Captain's
cabin, and the other half in the ward room, the differ
ence between the two being marked by is damask cur
tain neatly fringed playing upon a thicligilt rod. in
the stern is neatly disposed a beautiful service of Chi
na, on the left of which the open door of the steward's
pantry gave a view of a curiously arranged collection
of cups and 'sweets, plates and twenty other different
articles quite as pretty as they are indispensable. Oa
the right and left of the stern are disposed two side
boards with a snow white polish, relieving by triads of
gold upon which rest sundry beautiful specimens of
cut glass and silver wars. The bettbs are in the forms
of sofas, softly cushioned and covered with a drab
damask richly figured. Each copartment or state
room is divided from the next to it by a curtain, and
another hangs in front which may be pushed nut a din
ranee of a foot or more at pleasure, so tint the limits
of a comfortable little apartment may be increased du
ring the time required for sleep, or diminished during
the day when increased space becomes of value. The
upholstery is remarkably neat, and the effect of the
cabins, when viewed as a Whole, are remarkably fine;
reflecting much credit upon the designer, and those
who realized the conception. We should have said
, that in descending the stairs from the upper to the low
er deck, we were struck with the neatness with which
a number of Boarding Naives and pistols were sr
' ranged round the combings of the hatches, while the
hatchways themselves were surmounted by a kind of
canopy of strong brass rods over which a cover may be
thrown in case of bad ,vcather.

It is said that 60,000 emigrants have reached Wis
consin this year by way of the Lakes, and the number
has been increased to leo,ooo by emigration through
other nnttes—The Milwaukie Democrat says:—"A
large majority who have this year become resider.ts
of - the territory, are of course Fillmore, and have lo-
cated in theeeveral counties east of the Rock river,
so that the farming population of eastern Wisconsin
cannot now be less (we exclude the inhabitants of vil
lages) than 65 or 70,000. As outlets for the produc
tions, or as marks for the trade of this whole region,
there are at present but four prominent points: Green
Bay, at the north, whose trade, under present circum
stances, is confined to a small and sparsely populated
extent of country; Milwaukie, whose location uponthe
lake shore is about central, and which from this and
other causes, is and will continue to be the outlet and
have the trade of at least one-half of the country al
luded to. in connection with a heavy trade from the
mining region: Racine, 25 mile* south of Milwauliie,
whose position and advantages must secure to it the
trade of probably over one-fourth of that country; and
Southport., near the southern limit of the tetritorv,
which, besides, being the out-let and point of trade for
the southern portions of Racine, Walworth, and Rock,
is also the mart for the north-eastern counties of Illi
nnis. Winton immense country the Western States
will bein the course' of ten years—how powerful in
numbers—how rich in resources, and how controlling
in all their political relations! Verily, it may be well

Last week a middle aged man, of genteel appear
twee, who said his name was Leb ar, from New Jersey,
came into our quiet borough and called on a number
ofmarebents, who soon recognized in him an extensive
customer, and all the locomotives about their establish
ments were put in motion to fill the gentleman's orders.
Lie bought large bills of dr) goods, groceries, &c., at
four different stores, stating that he bad a team which
would be sent for the goods, when payment would be
made. By this time it was discovered that the pur
chaser did not intend to call for the goods, having no
moans to pay for them, and that he was ei ther not of
sound mind, of an arrant impostor. A council of the
duped merchants was at once held, and summary
punishment agreed upon. Cowhides were immediately
procured and Leber was publicly whipped through
the mutes of Easton ! This unusual Procedure has
emitted quite an excitement and various rumors in re
lation to the ttansaction were circulated, from which
the above particulars are collected. Four persons
have been bound over to appear before the next court
of Quarter Sessions as principal lynchers, when the
whole affair will be investigated and disposed of ac

From his having made the Spanish language the
sole object of his study during a residence of two years I
in Havana, there is reason to suppose that he has ac

and most harmonious of all modern languages.
Of his competency to teach French there can be no
doubt, from the fact of his having been a clerk in t
