B.Romantic Story 'of Buried Tv:maitre
on an Inland in the South Pacific.
A San Francisco. paper, noticing the
fo'rmation in that city of the "South
Pacific Protecting Coinany" (which is
reported . ! to be the si teenth attempt
made for the same pur ose), gives the
following romantic hi ry of the bur-,
led treasure- which thi company seeks
to. recover : The sttit Object of the
company -is to- recovbi buried" treasure
in Cocos Island—that is, to attempt to
recover, provided the treasure is there
In 1854 or 1855 - , a company with the
same object-in view was gotten up at
the same place.' Stock. in the golden
venture was liberally bought and - lib
erally.sold, as, robably many in Marys , .
ville will recollect, as the schooner Ju
rlitui Pringle, well manned and provis
ioned, -sailed away, and with a fair wind
made &straight wake for the Pirate's
Isle. -Some time afterwardshe returned
-with—a cargo of lumber. it appeared
that an exceedingly strong current was
found running round the. jsfaud, so
strong that'll landing could'notbe effect
ed. . .
In fact there is but one place there
where a boat can land, and that adven
turers failed to discover its whereaboutsi
and so, after consunfieg nearly all their
provisions, they beaded .back for ,San
Francisco, stopping at a. place -on the
coast for a cargo. Another attempt was
made five or six years after, with what
result-we have forgotten. The history
connected with the treasure is as fol
lows. A great many' years ago the
Pacific Ocean was infested With bump:
'l eers, the majority of them coining
from Spain. One of them, named
Lollonais,-rendered himself most noto
rious by his • piracies • at sea, and his
• murders and robberies on , land. After

who by his bloodthirstiness and daring
recklessness threw, into theshadeall, the
acts of his predecesSors,. the Spaniards.
lie landed at and pillaged all the princi
pal towns on the South American cciast,
always *torturing the inhabitants in the
most inhuman manner, in order, to
' compel them to confess *here they bad
hidden their money andjewels. Twice
be landed at Panama, and by horrid
cruelty forced from the people a great
- portion of, their wealth. lt was after
one of these "raids" that Morgans With
his fleet of thirty-three vessels, went to
the Island of Taboga, a- short dikitanee
fromyanama, to have agrand carousal.
• Here some of the' crew mutinied, and
`,seizeing one of the best ships, went 'on
"an independent cruising, during which
they fell in with a Spanish galleon
bound from a;.N.lexican or Chilian port
• to Spain, laden with gold coins andjew
els belonging to the church, of the val
ue-of 5.20,000,000. After transferringthe
booty to 'their own ship, they scuttled
and sunk the other, first putting to
death all on board with the exception
of two buys. Next a niansof-war hove
in sight, gave chase, and the pirnte*
steered for Cocos island (distant from
Panama/1,000 miles, more or less, in a
Westerly direction), where they hastily
lowered the boats to carry the treasure
on shore. Two boat loads were safely
landed and quickly buried, while 'the
third,deoat was swamped, and its load
(which was but lit small portion of the
whole) went to the bottom,' where it
could very plainly be seen through the
All hands were soon again on board,
and all sail made upon the ship.' But
- they were overhauled before night, and
all slain -but the two boys who were
again spared. They were - carried to
Spain. where they lived and'died. One
of them had several times attempted td
inuence some wealthy men still 1
to induce a search for the treasure, but
none would believe his story ; and on
his death-bed he Solemnly assured some
friends that the account he had given
was true. As the northeast end of the
island (or the southwest, or some other
part) is the only spot where a landing
can be made, and that through a toler
ably heavy surf. On the beach is a
naturaT basin, formed in a rock .by the
constant dripping of water, drinkable
' anti pure ay crystal, for so malty years.
As the pirates were in a great hurry,
theY.coeldn't have buried the golden
ouzas and church ornaments very deep—
hut then what changes may have taken
place there within a hundred years!
The spot may now be overgrown with
thick, tangled brushwood, and—but
'who can say the freebooters' treasure
has not been retrieved long ago?

A RVMARICABLE ESCAPE.—We have
not heard anything for a long time
more surprising than the following facts,
communicated to us by Mr. Landis Ber
, Ty, who resides on the hill a few doors
beyond the toll-gate. Mary Birch, a
little girl nine or, ten years old, daught
er of Mosgßirch, living near Mr. Ber
ry's has been in the, habit of • going to
his well to *draw water for her mother.
On Monday last she went to the well 4s
usual, and while stooping over the curb
in.the act of filling her vessel with wa
. tel. from the bucket, she lost her balance
and fell headlong . into the well. Mr.
• Berry and family were at dinner and
; ; hearing the windlass revolving with'
'Unusual velocity, they 'went out and
' folind the little girl at; the bottom of the
well' alive and - sensible, 'struggling to
keep herself from drowning. By means
1 / 4 61 the bucket, rope and windlass, they
soon restored her to terra firma, when
it was found that she had sustained, no
injury except a slight cut over the right
eye, and a trifling wound on the top of
tpe' head. The well is twenty-eight
feet deep with eight feet of water in • it,
' is walled with stone and has a diameter
o only three feet. How the little thing
could escape dashing her brains out in
the' fearful fall, or being drowned in a
depth of water twice her length, is al
together astOnishing and inexplicable.

ATTACKED BY A SNAKE.—Op Sunday

Mr. Wu. 13uonsT, of Clinton township,
went to the mountain to gather a few

the family. , After krocuring as many
berries - as he desired,and had started
'for home, his foot came contact with
a large black snake. ; Instantly his
snake-ship gave battle, awl coiled itself
around the body •of Mi. BROBST. Mr.
B. was of course muci 'frightened and
confused, but finally, 'ucceeded In get

spring being a very strong one he could
notopen it. Failing in hig purpote to
open the knife and \ cut his adversary in
two, he commenced beating it over the
head with the dosed knife and continu
ed to do so until it loosened its hold and
dropped from his person. . Feeling very.
sick Mr. B walked to a log near by and
sat down, but in the course of a few
minutes went in search of the snake
again but it had made its escape ipto
the bushes. Upon an examination in
the evening 11ir. 33, found that he had

We cite the 4ient of the political

Judge Sharswood has been au active
State4Rights nplitician for more tl an
thirty years. We published a grap lic
sketch of his record in the AddresS of
the Republican State Committee. The
fact that Judge Sharswood is the noini

• It is said that the practice of celling
the Copperheads rebels and traitors - is' a
harsh one. It may 1?e harsh, 'but is it
.not just? Mark who these it eu ' quote
when they want'to make a point. If
the fight is on a Union General, they
search the rebelnewspapers for evidence
against him. Just now, Copperhead
papers 'are firing away at " Ben. Butler.
Robert Quid, the Richmond repel Com
missioner, of Exchange of prisoners
during the war, writes a letter Rating
that he ooered to exchange 15 1 ,000 sick
and wounded Union prisoners .for l an'
equivalent.• This was in 1804. The
inference IS that Gen. Butler refused to
accept the proposition. But Gen. Buller
makes aii official .statement denying
that Mr. Ould ever addressed him such
a proposition. The Copperheads pub
lish Ould's charge, and do not publish
'the fact that Butler has officially de
mied its truth. They use Ould's letter
to batter Butler. Of course we all know
that any Copperhead will sooner believe
a traitor than aman who foughttraitors.
It is the most natural thing in the world
for them to do it.
We have never doubted Mr. Seeretary
Stanton. 'He has been Aleut when
speech seemed the order- of the hour,
and some have - therefore regarded him
as atrimmer; Mr. Stanton hastrimmed
his sails so as to convey the ship of
State into still waters if possible. He
early:saw that the Captain was drunk
and irresponsible, the first ma t te in his
dotage, the'second mate imbecile, and
the petty officers simply servile. He,
as pilot, kept sober, and never left the
wheel. He obeyed orders, rather than
abandon the ship to inebriate officers.
This could not last long, of course;
and so the other day, Mr. Johnson sent
a note to Mr. Stanton saying to him "I
will 'accept your resignatiOn." Mr.
Stanton replied substantially,—"Thank
you ; but I propose to stand by the ship
until Congress returns." We hope he
will carry out his propOsition by all
means. The people cannot yet' afford
to spare Secretary Stanton -from the
post he has so ably and faithfully, occu
pied- s h 3e j at rary DitiZ—Avc and n boar

was never in a Governn3ent Depart

A HORRIBLE DISASTER,—The col

greatest disaster that eveisdeiolated any
On the Ist of July the wooden frame
work of a 1,500 feet deep pit of a coal
m;' e in the neighborhood of Lugen, in
. xony,- gave way, blocking up with au
impenetrable mass of timber and rock,
the pit at a depth of about 300 ells from
the top. At the moment of the disast
er, 102 men, nearly all the supporters of
large families, were working in the bot
tom of the mine. Their provisions were
only calculated for one day. On the sth
of July, the date of our latest news by
mail, the place where the fallen masses
had stopped the pit was of such a solid
structure that the water was standing
on it many feet high.
From all sides the most available help
was offered, but the, conviction that
nothing could be done soon enough to
save the unfortunate miners weakened,
'as it seems, any energetic efforts. They
were doomed to die of starvation and
want of fresh air: On the 4th of July
all attempts to reach the bottom of the
mine by any quick process were aband
oned, and a sure but slow plan was de
vised by which at least the corpses of
the perished could be extracted. Iron
tubes of abOut two feet in diameter
were to be sunk through the obstruct
ions down to the- bottpm of the' pit.—
Among the dead are forty-four" married
men, one of whom had a wife and nine
living children.' The scenes at the. en
trance of the pit are described aslament
able witheut a parallel. One hundred
and thirty-seven children filled the air
with their woeful cries, whilst the su

This, ejaculate the copperhead organs,
was not the cahe when the Democratic
party was in power. But those who
recklessly charge corruption on the
radicals, and claim purity for the Dem
ocracy, are as barren of facts to prove
their charges as they i' are to establish
their claims. , • -
'lt is a historical fact, that while that
party was iupower, in every department
or the Government, :the scheme of se
cession was concocted by the leading
Democrats of the South, who controlled
the Government and' managed the
Democratic party of the country. Long
before Mr. Lincoln was inaugurated
President of the United States; aye, on
the very day it •Was announced to the
American people that he was elected
President, and before his, policy of
Government could be enunciated, 'it
was telegraphed from South Carolina
to Washington that the secession of
that State was a foregone conclusion.
Not only that, but December 20, 1860,
South Carolina seceded ; January 7,
1861 Florida seceded ; • Mississippi went
out January 9; January 11, Alabama
seceded ; on the 16th of thesamemouthr

But let us go further, and see - what
these Southern people did while they
yet had all the power In the Govern

and Navy. These States went into re
hellion on the day§ we have given, and
began their deeds of capture and plun

Nearly the whole of this unlawful and
rebellious work had been done while
the Democratic party was in power.
We have given the dates and the
facts of history. Our enumeration of
the wrongs of the Democratic party,
when in power, forms but a 'portion of
the dark crimes which hang over the
career of that organization. In its at
tributes as a political organisation it
may fairly be accounted as the Beast of
the' nineteenth century, because Its
course has. been marked by 'brutality
and it is covered with the blood of the
noble and the brave who died for- the
safety of the Government. It would
be as well at least for Democrats here
after, not to boast of what the Demo
cratic party did when it was in power.
