I. T. allowing seem to have been some of the causes.—
Women were confined to household toile; their
minds bad not adequate occupation : many young
unmarried women, without duties, would lack
objects of sufficient interest fur their yearnings:
many of the old ones, despised, ill-treated probably,
soured with the world, rendered spiteful and vin.
dietive, took even more readily to a resource which
roused and gave employment to their imaginations,
and promised to gratify their wishes. It is evident
too,-that the supposed sex of the devil helped him
here. The old women bad amides of making much
or him, and of coaxing, and getting round the
black gentleman. But beside ell this, there lies in
_The physical temperament of the other sex a pecu
liar susceptibility of derangement of the nervous
system, a predisposition to all the varieties of trance,
with ata prolifin sources of mental illusion—all
le l2 P, l i is to be observed, to advance the belief
and enlarge the pretentions of witchcraft.
The form of trance which specially dominated in
witchcraft was trance-sleep with visions. The
graduates and candidates in the faculty sought to
fill into trances, in the dreams of which they man
ized their waking aspirations. They entertained
no doubt, however, that their visits to the devil and
their nocturnal exploits were genuine; and they
scent to have wi.llilly shut their eyes to the possi
bility of their having never left their beds. For,
with a skill that should have betrayed to them the
trub, they slim used to4repare a witoh-broth to
promote in Borne way 'their nightly expeditions.
And this they composed not only of materials cal
culated to prick on the imagination, but of substan
tial narcotics, too—the medical effects of which
they no doubt were acquainted with. They con
templated evidently producing a sort of stupor.
The professors of witchcraft had thus made
the singular step of artificially producing a sort of
trance,with the object of availing themselves of
cite of its attendant phenomena. The 'ritamans
in Siberia do the like to this day to obtain the gift
of prophecy. And it is more than probably that
the Egyptian and Delphic priests habitually availed
themselves of some analagous procedure. Modern
mesmerism is in part an effort in the same direc
Without at all comprehending the real character
of the power called into play, mankind seems to
have found out by a " mere palpatio," by instinctive
experiment and lucky groping in the dark, that in
the stupor of trance the mind occasionally stumbles
upon odds and ends of strange knowelcdge and pre.
science. The phenomenon was never for an instant
suspected of lying in the order of nature. It was
construed, to suit the occasion and times, either
into divine inspiration or diabolic whisperings.—
Bat it was always supernatural. So the ignorant
old lemon.seller in Zschokke's Selbstschau thought
his " hiden wisdom" a mystical wonder; while
the enlightened and accomplished narrator of their
united stories stands alone, in striking advance
even of his own day, when he unassumingly and
diffidently puts forward his seer gift as a simple
contribution to phydieal knowledge. And thus, my
proposed task accomplished, my dear Archy, final.

Drirraessnvo RAILROAD ACCIDEST.—An accident
occurred on the Columbia Railroad, on Monday
last, near the switches, about five miles below this
place, by which Mr. Gco. Wilson,, conductor of
burtben cart, was so severely injured as to render the
amputation of his leg necessary. A rail a short
distance ahead of the train was discovered to be
out of its chair. The engineer immediately re
versed the engine, and the break not being applied
in time, the car to which Mr. W. was attached
rushed up, and the bumper doubled under that of
the car ahead, catching both legs of Mr. Wilson,
and mutilating them in a horrible manner. He
was brought home where his injuries were examin
ed by Drs. Cochran and Clarkson, when it was
found necessary to amputate one of his legs below
the knee. The other foot is badly injured, but
bops, are entertained that it will not be necessary
to amputate it. Mr. W. is a Son of Temperance,
andevery attention is paid him by the Division to
which be belongs.

residing near this place, had his leg broken on
Thursday by being run over by an ore wagon. lie I

LETTERNIPROM THE ARMY.
The following letters received this week have
been kindly furnished us for publication. They
contain much of general and local interest, and
will amply repay an attentive perusal; and the
more so, - as the writer is personally known to most
of our readers. Lieut. T. D. COCHRAN has proved
himself a brave soldier, and his open hearted gen.
erosity is as proverbial in the army as in civil life.
Well and bravely does he fill the place rendered
vacant by the untimely death of his lamented
Castle of Perote, JUNE, 23, 1847.
Miring a little leisure this morning I embrace
c opportunity of writing to you again. Although
I have much to say of what I have seen and en
dured, this letter will not be very interesting from
the fact, that I cannot communicate all that I
ave to say at. this time
An express arrived at Vera Cruz on the sth of
this month, informing Gen. Cadwallader, that Col.

from that city, and that a reforeement was re

Andrews kindly allowed me to go after hanging
back five or six hours and refusing to du so. We
have been cutting our way to this place through I
hordes of thieving guerrilla rancheros, who stand
behind the ehapparal and shoot down horses and
men and then run away. We had a night battle
at the National Bridge, (Puente National,) on the
Path, I believe. It is one of.the strongest positions
in Mexico—two forts commanding the road and
Bridge, or rather one fort on a hill and a breast-
work on another. We were in the advance, and
fired into a barricade which they had erreeted on
the bridge. Both hills thcn opened their fire on
us, and the bullets flew thicker from the Mexicans'
escopetts than ever hail fell in our country. Ono
third of the howitzer detachment was placed hors
du combat and one third of our horses were killed. I
Lieut. J. M. Blakey was also wounded of our small '
party, and indeed we suffered dreadfully—much
more so than any other company or regiment in
proportion to our strength. I escaped, thank God,
with only a scratch on the shin from the shoe of
one of our ammunition horses, which was killed,
and with my hands torn and scratched by the
briars in tearing away the barricade in order to
get our guns through. This we did under the
thickest of the enemy's fire. But I cannot ex
plain all now. We whipped them in a little time.
At the La Hoya pass, on the 19th, we had another
fight. Some of our men and eaters were wound
ad, but although the enemy appeared in force, in a
strong position, they ran away like frightened deer
before the resistless charge of dragoons and infan
try, with a few shots from the big guns. I again
escaped, though constantly exposed to the enemy.
From the National Bridge to the town of Los
Vegas, this side of the Le Hoye pass, we (Ave been

This is a strong place. It is situated in a cold,

here on the 29th of June it is as cold at even

quite the reverse of this place.
My general health remains excellent, in spite of
privations, exposure and fatigue of which you have
little idea. It is astonishing how a man's better
feelings become blunted, and all that makes a man

seen enough to make me blush for mankind—

seems wholly wrapped up in self. I never believed

Village of Misioc, four miles west from
the city of Mexico, Auctisv 25, 1817. j
Since writing to you from *Puebla, I have tra
versed the intermediate country between that city
and this place, and have seen and done a variety
of things new and strange to me, to some extent.—
We left Puebla with Gcn. Pillow in command of
the division, and Geti's Cadwallader and Pierce
commanding the two brigades of which it is com
posed, on the 10th of this month, and marched 12
miles to our camping ground, where we were
drenched with is torrent of rain during the entire
night, Gen. Cadwallader's brigade, to which our
regiment is attached, being the last to leave Puebla
of Gen. Scott's army intended for the forward move.
mcnt. The next day we marched 15 miles to St.
Martins—a town as large as Columbia—through a
highly cultivated country, and as lovely a plain as
I have yet seen, as it was the day previous. The
next day our march was 22 miles to Rio Frio, near
the region of eternal snow, and with Popocatapell
and another snow mountain but a few miles from
us. We spent a cold night, I tell you, there, arid
left the next morning at a very early hour, and for
two or three hours kept on the ascent. Then we
began to descend into this splendid basin between
the mountains, and caught glimpses -occasionally of
the beautiful valley, until at length the whole glo
rious prospect burst upon the view. We marched
30 miles this day and encamped, in the advance, at 4
o'clock P. M., at the town of Chaim, some twenty
one miles by the direct route, to the city of the
Aztecs. We were quartered with Major Gen.

visable to leave that to' its glory - anti pass round to

done. Our first day's march from Chaleo was 12

less and gloomy.
At night. (we were the van guard) we encamped
in the loveliest grove composed of Olive trees which
you can conceive of well. The soft luxuriant green
sward carpeted the whole ground, and the spread
ing branches of the largest Olive trees in the world
rendered this the most beautiful place I have ever
seen. The next day, over the same narrow, infa
mous road, we marched some 15 miles, I believe,
and found the road trenched, filled with stones and
every other conceivable device of the Mexicans to
retard our progress. Gen. Worth, in our advance,
soon got his pioneers to work, and what with corn
stalk bridges and stones, we soon got along. Gen-
Worth's advanced guard had a brush with the ene_
my on this day, but they soon gave it up. The next
day we marched and were quartered in San Au-
I gustine, some six or eight miles from this village of
IMisine, and withip three miles of San Antorala

this day whilst approaching San Antonio. On tha
19th the ball commenced, but not on the San

hill to the westward of San Augustine, and covered
Idle operations of our pioneers in making a road
towards a fort commanded by Gen. Valencia, on a
I hill called Pedrcgal de Contrez. Our artillery soon
I opened on the Mexicans in the fort, and they re
turned the fire with spirit, directing many of their
!shots at our regiment on the hill. We soon after I
took up our line of march over a mass of lava rock
(volcanic formation,) of a mile or two in breadth,
which extended to the Mexican works at San An
tonio, and was almost impossible for footmen, even,
to gain a position to the right and rear of Contrez.
By the limo we had crossed the lava rock, and a
'deep ravine in our front, Santa Anna, with some
I ten thousand men, made Isis appearance in our front
and on the Mexican road. Col. Riley with the 2d
and 3rd infantry was already over and formed.—
Our regiment came up gallantly and formed to re
: ccive Santa Anna's party, without reference to Col.
IRiley. Soon after we fell back on Riley's position.
IThe enemy formed line of battle on the slope of the
hill in our front, and with seven thousand infantry,
three thousand lancers and some artillery, threaten
ed us with an attack. Our position, (Gen.Cadwal
leder in command,) was as well chosen as could be,
in the rear of a corn field—with an apple orchard
in the rear of us, or rather with corn fields, apple
orchards and maguey plants to protect us from
their cavalry. -We remained in this position all
night, during which time we were reinforced—and
such a night. It rained torrents, and we laid down
in the mud and filth, without a blanket to cover us,
or a bite to eat, end slept. At three o'clock, A.M.,
we rose from our soft bed, and, silent as the grave,
marched from this position, (San Magdalena) and
" 4 .-o .“ , tankhed Mexicans on the hilt looked
for us at San Magdalena, we were preparing to
storm Valencia's fort at Pedregal de Contrez.—
There were seven thousand Mexicans there. About
fifteen hundred men, wearied, worn, hungry, wet,
and bedaubed with mud, drove them from their po
sition in fifteen minutes or lass, with a loss on their
part of 500 killed, and with but few on our part.—
There were 27 piece's of heavy artillery in this
work—yet we took it without having a single
piece of artillery to assist us, or without a mounted
man. Our regiment .and the rifles on foot, were
the supporting regiments, and we marched up the
hill under a shower of grape and cscopette balls,
which killed some of our men, in the most perfect
veteran order. Our dragoons and light artillery
now got. over the volcanic formation, and we soon
took up our line of march for the enemy under
Gen. Rincon, at and near San Antonio, the rear of
whose position we had now gained.
After marching eight of ten miles we halted to I
rest awhile. Soon after, we heard Worth engaged
with the enemy on the San Antonio road, but they
left that place for their entrenched fort and strong
position at Charubuseo. Here were assembled
some 25 or 30,000 Mexican soldiers, with a large
quantity of heavy artillery—with corn fields and
maguay plants, and houses for their infantry—and
a strong church to boot. After hard fighting for
two or three hours, they broke and ran. Our boys
were too many for them, although we had scarcely
one•fourth of their force engaged with them, yet in
spite of artillery, entrenched forts, stone walls, corn
fields, etc, we whipped them badly. Our loss in
the two engagements is said to be about 900 men.
This is severe—but nowhere in Mexico did they
make the stand which they did here. Cerro Gordo

City of Mexico, SErrEmer.rt 20, 1847
From the ancient city of the Aztecs and the
much talked of "Hai ls of the Montezuma," I
sin spared to write to you, to let you know that
through God's blessiro; I am in the land of the
living, and in fine health and spirits. After a
series of the most desperate and harrassing con.
filets ever witnessed in this country or on this eon.
tinent, our gallant little army has fought its way
through fields of gory glory into the famous Capi
tal. Commencing on the 17th of last month with
skirmishing near San Augustine. up to the 14th
instant (with the slight interruption of the armis
tice.) we have fought them continually, and with
fearful odds in their favor. The battle, of Con
treras, San Agustine, Churtibusco, Moline del Rey.
Chapultepee, and the gates of San Cosme and
Zacabuya, will long be remembered by our people,
and the gallant spirits of the 'gallant army which
have fought them be honored at home and abroad.
I have not time to-night to write much, for the
conveyance by which I hope to send this will be
off for Vera Crnz directly, and I must not miss it.
In all these fights, Allison, Stout, Andrew Hays,
Geo. W. Duck and the rest of our Columbians
fought well and bravely, doing honor to tfie bo
rough. Jack Buchanan, poor fellow, was torn
literally to atoms at Moline del Rey, on the Bth of
Sept., by the bursting of a shell• thrown from Che
pultapec by the Mexicans. Whatever were his
faults, he was a brave soldier and a valuable one.
Geo. Gilmore, of York, sergeant in Capt. Wad
deli's company tram Philadelphia, lust his arm in
a similar manner at Molino del Rey, and died in
the hospital at Zacabuya, a few days afterwards.
He leaves a wits at York. He was of the bravest,
and a gallanter soldier never died. Col. Wm. V.
Graham, (poor Richard's old Captain,) met his
death, also, at Moline del Rey. He did not know
whai fear was—he was aU soldier, and all man—
brave to indiscretion. I escaped without a scratch
in all these conflicts, but such a wizzing of bullets
from 20,000 muskets and such showers of grape
and bursting of shells, and glittering of steel, I
had never imagined, hardly. Capt. James Cald
well, I have just learned, died to-day from lock
jaw paused by being struck on the foot by a frag
ment if shell az the stoviniog,Cf Chepultepec on
the 14th inst. He was J. F. Cottrell's partner, and
an old resident of our town. "Pretty Bill" West
haven was his orderly sergeant, and is here now.
Capt. Caldwell's company (volunteers,) arrived at
Puebla a day or two before we left, and come up
with the 2.d Pennsylvania regiment, Gen. Quit.
This is a great city. It is built on the same
principlo as Spanish towns generally ; but the
public buildings are much more magnificent than
any I have yet seen in this country. I hope that
communication with the sea board will be open
soon, when I hope to be able to write you a long
letter, giving you n glimpse of all the strange and
wonderful things 1 have seen, and a full history of
the terribly glorious fights which have taken place
in the valley of Mexico. Yours &c.
TOE Itousz OF RUSSELL.-AS O. curiosity which
may interest our readers, considering who is now
Prime Minister of England, we site the origin of
the illustrious house of Russell, from a work just
issued from the London press, entitled: "The
Right of Aristocracy to the Soil Considered."
John Russell, a plain gentleman residing near
Bridgport, county of Dorset, obtained a favorable
introduction to conrt by a piece of good fortune.
The Arch-Duke, Philip of Austria, having en.
countered a violent hurricane in his passage from
Flanders to Spain, was driven into Weymouth
where lie landed, and was hospitably received by
Sir Thomas Trenchard, a gentleman of the neigh
borhood. Sir Thomas Trenchard apprised the
court of the circumstance, and in the interim,
while waiting for instructions what course to fol.

on the prince. Mr. Russell proved so agreeable a
companion, that the Arch-Duke desired him to ac
company him to Windsor. Ile was there presented
to the King, Henry VII, who likewise was so well
pleased with Mr. Russell, that he retained him as
one of the gentlemen of the privy chamber. Be.'
ing subsequently a companion of the prince, he so
far ingratiated himself into young Tudor's favor
that he got elevated to the peerage, under the title
of Baron Russell, of Cheyneys. In the next year,
Ififlo, when the church lands were seized Henry
gave his favorite the Abbey of Tavistock, with the
extensive possessions belonging thereto. In the
next reign, Russell's star being still in the ascend

monastery of Woburn. In Charles the Second's

MAGNETIC MAGIC MlRrtoß.—Baron Dupotet, the
great Paris Magnetiser, has invented a Magic
Mirror, which be supposes to be the same that was
among the professors of the "black art" in former
times. It is a small instrument, made of a sub.
diem resembling dull white metal. The Baron
explains its abets as being produced by the trans
mission of the matiere animante of his own body
into the metal. Many people have been thrown
into convulsions by the bare approach of the mirror,
while others declare amid the transports of grief,
or the stupefaction of surprise, that they behold
reflected on its seam) various scenes of their past
lives, or see themselves engaged in acts which they
remembered not, therefore suppose that they must
be anticipations of the future. Wonderful, if true.
