"-- From the Literary World. 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 the Falls. 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 forever. 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. Lining Out. 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 out : "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 secchingexplanation : "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 your segar ! and a-half, and a-half, men trseven and a-half, thirty--thirty two and a-half, and a half—kick out that man with a segar, and a-half, and a-half—go ing, going--thirty-five, thirty-five-- thirty-five--thirty-seven and a-half— curse that segar smoke!—and a-half and a-half and a half—l'd rather have the devil about me—and a-half, and a-half, and a-half— it gives me the phthisic— and a-half, and a-half—going, going— forty, forty cents—forty-two and a-half —who's putting brimstone on the stove 1 —and a-half, and a-half, and a-half—l wish I had hold of that boy—and a half, and a-half—l'd choke the rascal —and a-half, and a-half—going, going—who says forty-five—not half the price of the book—and a-half, and a-half, forty two amd a-half—forty-five—now forty seven and a-half—a treatise on the tooth ache, gentlemen—who'll give fifty cents for the tooth-ache, and a-half and a-half —forty-seven and a-half--look at that boy there—and a-half, and a-half—pock eting one of those penknives—and a half, and a-half—l can't have my eyes everywhere—and a-half, and a-half -fifty two and a-half—kick all the boys out of the room—and a-half, and a-half, —kick 'em out, I say—and a-half, and a-half--going, going, gone."Pennsylva- Help Each ,Other. This sentiment is the root of all true benevolence, and the practice of the injunction is the living form of Brother hood. It is not only the root of earthly 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 Walter Scott on one occasion when ur eed not to prop the fulling credit of an ac quaintance : "The man was my friend when friends were few, and I will be his, now that his enemies are many." p-Men Marry at twenty for passion ; at thirty for love ; at forty for money ; at fifty for the sake of being fondled and nursed. £LEXANDRXA FOUNDRY, rp E subscriber respectfully annoui.ces to the public that he is prepared to do work of all kinds connected with the Foundry business. in the best manner, and on the most reasonable terms.

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 cine. I most sincerely hope that all will make trial of the medicine, and with me be able to re joice in the return of health. Lady Cured of Neuralgia. From Rev. TH0.31.4S KIDDER, of Vermont. Wixnsott, Vt., A ug.9,1846 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.
