' The morning was hombre and the wind

"He has gone on, 1 -uess," said One "to

the echo of our own Voices was the only re

anxiously aNvhile, %reheard a shot far_up the
river. . Soon after,! " bang—bang" went
two more guns in dal same direction. The
poor fellow ,itad heard onr shot, and fearing
we ruirla not hear Ids in return, and so take
a wrong direction, jaist stood anciluaded and
fired as fast as he cohltl. When we found
him he was pale as Marble, and looked like
one who had been in! a state of perfect be
wilderment. On lea Ling us, instead of going
down stream, as sho Id have done, he had
gone directly up.fter awhile he had come
out on the hank of strange river. As it
was-on the wrong site of him to be the one

Chemical Miracles
' At the court of the Duke of Brunswick,
Professor Beyruss promised that during
dinner his coat should becotn , 2 red ; and, to
the ania2ement,of the prince and the other
guests, it actually became that color. M.
Vogel, who relates the fact ; does not reveal
the secret made use of by Bcyrnss: but he !
observes that by pouring limewater on the
juice of the beet root, a colored liquid is ob
tained ; and that a piece of•eloth steeped in
this liquor and quickly dried becomes 'red in
a few hours, simply by contact with
air; and further, that the effect is accelerat
ed in' an apartment where champagne and
other wines are being plentifully poured out.
It has liden proved by recent experiments,
that wool died by orchil of a violet color, or
stained blue by the accidental sulykate of
indigo, in a bath of hydro sulphuric acid,
becomes colorless, yet assumes the blue ; or
the violet color, on exposure to the free air.
Either explanation applies to the modern
Let, and indicates the possibility of reviving
ancient prodigies: it also discovers the man
ner in which, nmid flaming torches and
smokinr, incense, in the saucttiaries of poly
: theism, the veil concealing the sacred things
may have been-seen to change from whiterto
a blood red hue, and which spectacle was
'considered the presage of frightful disasters.
'Blood boiling upon the altars, or upon the
marbles or in the vases of the temples, was.
lso indicative of peril and calamity.
rovenee,,in the sixteenth century, when a
consecrated .phial was tilled with the blood
Of St. Magdalene, in a solid state,Was placed
near her pretended head, the blood became
liquid and suddenly boiled. The same phe
nomenon was exhibited at the cathedral of
Avellino, with the blood of St. Lawrence;
and also at BiSseglai, with that of St. Ponta
icon, and of two other martyrS. In the pre..
sent day., at an annual public ceremony at
