THE SPIRIT SACRIFICE.
A CHIPPEWA LEGEND.
It was Midsummer—and there was a
terrible plague in the wilderness. Many
a Chippewa village on the borders of
Lake Superior had been depopulated.
The only band of the great northern
nation which had thus far escaped, was
the one whose hunting goounds lay on
the northern shore of the St. Mary's
River. Their principle village stood
upon a gentle promoutary overlooking
the great lake, immediatly at the head
of the Soult or falls, the tribe were as
sembled in Council. Incantations of
every possible description had for many
days been performed, and yet nightly
tidings were received, showing that the
fatal disease was sweeping over the land,
like the fires of Autumn over the prai
ries. The signs in the sky as well as
these tidings, convinced the poor In
dians that their days were numbered.
It was now the last night of their . Coun
cil, and they were in despair. They knew
thou the plague had been sent upon the
earth by the Great spirit, as a punish
ment for some great crime, and they al
so knew that there was but one thing that
could possibly appease his anger. And
was this the sacrifice of the most beau
tiful girl of her tribe 1 And such was
the decree, that she should enter her
canoe, and throwing away her paddle,
cast herself upon the waters, just above
Morning dawned, and loud and dis
mal beyond compare, was the wild wail
of sorrow which broke upon the silent
air. Another council was held, and
the victim for the sacrafice was se
lected. She was an orphan child, and
her mother was a widow, feeble and in
firm. They told the maiden of her fate,
and she uttered not a repining word.
The girls and women of the village
flocked around their long-loved compan
ion, and decked her hair and her neck
with their brightest wampum, and the
most beautiful feathers and shells that
could be found in the tribe. The time
appointed for the sacrifice was the sun
set hour: and as the day was rapidly
waning the gloom which pervaded the
entire v tge gradually increased, and
it seem, as if a murmuring tone min
gled wi he roar of the mighty water
fall. '1 day was one of uncommon
splendor, and as the a in descended to
the horizon a retinue of gorgeous clouds
gathered around him, and the great
lake, whose waters receded to the sky,
was covered with a deeper blue than
had ever before been seen.
All things were now ready, and the
Indian maiden was ready for the sacra
fice.—ln silence was she conducted to
her canoe, and loud was the wail of
lamentation. It died away; and now
to the astoniohment of all the people, a
strange echo came from over the wa
ters. What could it mean ! A breath
less silence ensued, and even the old
men listened with fear. And now a
louder and clearer continuation of the
same echo breaks upon the air. A speck
is seen upon the waters. The sun has
disappeared, and a small canoe is seen
rapidly approaching, na if from the
very spot ' where the orb touched the
waters. The song increases, and as
the fairy like canoe sweeps mysterious.
ly over the watery waste, it is now seen
to contain a beautiful being resembling
it girl, clothed in a snow white robe.
She is in a standing attitude, her arms
are folded, and her eyes are fixed on
the heavens. Her soul is absorbed in a
song, of which this is the burden
"I come from the Spirit Land,
To appease the Great Spirit,
To stay the plague,
And to save life of the beautiful Chippewa."
Onward she came, and her pathway
lay directly towards the mighty rapids.
With utter astonishment did the Indians
look upon this unheard of spectacle,
and while they looked they saw the ca
noe and its spirit voyager pass directly
into the foam where it was lost to them
And so did the poor Indians escape
the plague. The St. Mary is a beauti
ful river; and during the summer time
its shores are always lined with lilies,
large, and of a marvellous whiteness ;
and it is a common belief among the
Chippaways that they owe their origin
to the spirit from whose mutilated body
they sprang. And so endeth the legend
of the Spirit Sacrifice.
An aged minister was officiating for
the first time at a public service in a
down East congregation, who had been
accustomed to having the hymns lined,
as it is termed. The venerably divine
could not see distinctly, and designed to
dispense with singing. To announce
his purpose, he arose and said :
"My eyes are dint, 1 cannot see"—
and immediately the chorister commen
ced singing the line to the tune of :
Old Hundred." Surprise and mortifi
cation rendered the minister almost
speechless, but he managed to stammer
"I meant but an opology."
This line was immediately sung by the
congregation, and the minister, now ve
ry much excited, exclaimed:
"Forbear, I pray—my sight is dims i"
but the singing proceeded, and the cou
plet wee finished by his troubled and be
"1 do not mean to read a hymn!.
Strange as it may seem, this was also
dung with much energy, and the worthy
old gentlmen sat down in despair.
SCENE AT AN AUCTION STORE.—We let
the reader imagine at which of our auc
tion stores this scene took place: Late
ly dropping in at a book auction, there
happeneb to be a man who annoyed the
company and the auctioneer with a se
gar. The book was up for tweny sev
en and a half, and the auctioneer dwel
ling upon it, cried, "And a-half, and a
half and a-half "--when smelling the
annoyance,he shouted out, "D--n

This sentiment is the root of all true
benevolence, and the practice of the
injunction is the living form of Brother

happiness, but imparts a blessing to the
almoner and the recipient. How happy
mankind might be if all would act upon
the noble principle displayed by Sir

Dn. Gun. B. GncEtr:--Dear Sir—l feel it not
only a pleaeui e, but a duty, to make known to
you and to the public, (if you desire it.) the sur
prising effects of the •• Oxygenated Bitters," in
relieving me from that most discouraging disor
der, Dyspepsia. I have been afflicted for about
seventeen years with Ike usual attendant symp
tom., viz: constipation of the bowels. headache,
pain in the cheat, flatulence acidity of the stom
ach, and severe nausea ; and for months at a lime
not the least particle of moisture would appear
on the surface of the chest or limbs, and most
of the tame I woe extremely bilious. I have used
various remedies, have been strict in my diet,
have been dosed with calomel and emetics day
after der by physician., but all to no gold pu
pa*. Hearing of the wonderful effects of the
"Oxygenated Bitters," in the cure of Dyspepsia,
I procured some as a lest resort , have used four
bottles of the medici, e, arid find she bad symp
toms all removed, and myself once more in the
enjoyment of health. None hut the Dyspeptic
suffeier, who has felt a I the horrors of the dis
ease, can at all appreciate the value of the medi

trial of the medicine, and with me be able to re
joice in the return of health.

Deka Stu r-4i gives me great pleasure to in
form you that the ‘• Oxygenated Hitters," with
which you furnished my wife, has wrought a
cure in her case. About two years since, my
wife was violently attacked with neuralgia in
the face, through the chest, in the wrists and
ankles. So violent was the disease, added to a
general derangement of the female sy stem, that
her strength was completely prostrated, her flesh
wasted, and she rendered miserable indeed. I
feel grateful for the restoration of her health, and
in duty bound to give publicity to the above
facts, that others similarly afflicted may know
where to seek for cure. Truly your friend,
