tries in the World ; and of all its provinces,
Para, the name alike of the province and
its principal city, is the most beautiful : the
luxurient " Amazonia" is all inelnded in its
boundaries ; andls indeed what, is termed
the'"Paradise of Brazil:" It has been lit
tle ekplortd, and little is even now known
of the numerous Indian tribes dwelling in
the interior. The scene r y of the Para river,
on which the town is sitdated, is nnsurpass•
ed for richness and variety ; its climate is
delightflit; its birds are ;numerous, and of
the most gorgeous plum4ge; it has an ex
tensive variety of quadrupeds, from the spot
ted jaguar to the little Alarm' azete monkey ; •
and insects glitter conitinually in the pure
atmosphere, dazzling the eyes with the light
of pros. Every description of natortal his-
tory, M . 64, teems with. splendid • " speci
mens.* The manuscript before us is a se-
ries of fresh personal adventures and remin
icences, to which we proceed to invite the
attention of our readers. The writer, it may
be propdr to add, while in Brazil, prosecu
ted vigorously his favoritestudy of Ornithol
ogy, with actual " illustrations ;" insomuch
that he has now in his possession one of the
mast extensive and beautiful ornithological
collections in the United States ; all of which
were killed in the native haunts by.thc wri
ter and his companion, who were undismay
ed by obstacles not a few of which were suf
ficiently serious to have intimidated older
adventurers. But let us not keep the reader
from the manuscript itself; but permit him
to turn over the leaves with us, taking' here
and there such passages as may strike our
fancy or enlist our attention. - Here is an
interesting account of the Triztettn, tespecies
of bird quite abundant in Jarmo!, of which
the " white throated". and the " yellow
throated" are the finest specimens ; the first
being black with a beautifully blended red
and yellow bill, the second somewhat small
er, with green reflections attd a less formi
dable black. " These birds," says, the wri
ter," lire principally on fruits, but when in
a state of captivity learn to eat almost eve
rything. Their fiivorite food is the Assuhy
berry, and their method of eating 'is very re
markable. They first seize the fruit in the
extremity of their bill, and by a sudden
twitch throw it several feet into, the air; as
it drops they catch it and swallow , it entire,
without the slightest draft at mastication.—
They confine themselves mostly to lofty trees,
where, they sit' with their beaks pointed di
tiectly towards the wind, thus overcoming a
power which if exerted on the broadside
might considerably disturb their comfort and
equanimity. Their flight is straight forward
from one place to another, nod it is seldom
that they make
,a curve while on .the wing.
Their eyes are so constructed that they can
not Isee distinctly 'ahead, but their vision on
the 'side is wonderfully acute. The hunter
most be acquainted with this. circumstance,
or:Ii e will find it almost impossible to get a
sho at them. They build their nests in the
ho ow 6f old trees and make u small circu
lart perture directly in front. The female
lay but two eggs,ron which she sits, and'
with her fOrmidable beak protruding from
'the Iport hole of her fortress', she is able ef
fectnally to protect herself and repel all m on
keyis, serpents, or other . animals or reptiles,
.wli.) may be disposed to invade her sacred
The writer's companion on his way back

the r maauscript, "with but one adventure by

thrugh i a part of the stream that was dark

While at Ctiripe, the name of nn estate be
longing to Alexander Campbell, Esq.,. a
gentleman greatly ;esteemed for his liberali
ty and kindness towards Americans, our
traveller records the following occurrence i
" We became acqUainted while in the city;
with an Englishman by the name of Gra
ham, who had 'left his /native country in
quest of health, wklehisiwife and only child.
lie`had devoted most of his tithe to the stu
dy of natural history, and had succeeded in
acquiring by indOtry arid perseverance a
very valuable collection df specimens. His
younger brother had just arrived from Eu
rope to accompani him home. Desirous of
showing him the Ileauties of the country 'he
suggested a trip to;Caripe, whither, in com
pany with a faithful black, who had been
his constant cornrienion, they all went,—
Wishing one day to pass the island of Ma
rajo, distant about :twelve miles, he went out
in a little montarie4 with his wife and child,
to gain a larger one Which was waiting for
him in the river, aloitt half a mile from the
shore. Through some carelessness or mis
mnuagement the iboat was upset and all
plunged into the . iwater. Every exertion,
was made by those in the larger vessel to
save-them, but without avail ; husband, wife
and child were drowned., This most tragic
scene • was witnessed by young ;Graham
from the beach; liut alas ! he could render
no assistance. What tumultuous throes of
anguish must have wrung that orphan broth
er's heart, on beholding chose most dear to
him on earth swallowed up in a moment by
the relentless wave ; leaVing him alone in a
,of strangeri i ! Mi. Graham himself
was an active swimmer, but he lost his life
endeavoring to sate that of his wife. Their
bodies, tighly - locked together in the em
braceof death, floated ashore. They loved
in life, and in death were not divided.' A
rude grave was dtig in the sand, and the sad
remains of worth nd beauty consigned to
its bosom. Here,' amid the solitude .of a
beautiful nature, and on the banks df the
king of rivers, they sweetly repose. No tear
of friendship bedeivs the spot, but , the rising
tide of the m ighty !Amnion daily tveeps over
it. Martyrs to tl4 science they so success
fully prosecuted, they are calmly sleeping at
! Ceripe :
• There breathes tht• olour of summer flowecrA,
Ana the music of Liras is there.'" •
. The reader haying now been favorably
introduced to our icorrespoodent, we shall
permit him to gossip with them " at discre
tion." He mentions t;tis amusing occur
•renee at Para: "At all the important parts
of the city, such a's the palace, custom house,
etc:, guards are stationed, whose business it
is to be vigilant d;)ring the day, and to bait
all persons who passbi,after eight o'clock
at night. One c4iiing a drunken English
sailor was staggering past the custom house,
when he was hailed by the guard, ' Quern
ear la?' '(‘ Who goes -there V) The cus
tomary reply to this interrogatory, is ' Ami
go;' (' A friend.' Our hero, not under
standing the language, nor what business
any one had to address him in such an nu
thoritive tnanner,lin a stentorian voice cried
out ' You skeaming Portugese :ion of
a gun, stop your noise Or I'll send you, to
It—ll !' The gurd, thinking of course that.
he could not understand the language, and
that he was merely tellinglatu so in Eng
lish, let him pass!, in. One cannot forbear
noticing the extreme pt4iteness of the Por
tages° in the streets. It is the custom uni
versally-for a Brdzilian 'gentleman on meet
ing a, stranger, toltake off his hat., and bow
ing, to salute him-with the popular expres
sion, ' yina Senior;' I C Long life, sir.')—
We were astonished at observing the respect
that was paid us On our first arrival ; by the
men who spoke ifild maidens who sweetly
smiled.'. . . • - Some idea of the success
with which our- alventurers prosecuted their
researches, may lie gathered from the sub
joined catalogue Of a portion of theircollec
non : " Our live i.tock was quite numerous ;
consisting of monkeys, an ant-sear, an ar
madillo, two roseate spOonbills, and at.many
egrets, together %rah several loquacioospar

nite deal of amuietnent. Thehirds became
so attached to tii.that they • would conic at
our'call, and taki food from our hands. The
parrots shortly learned to repeat two or three
English pbrases,iwhich they seemed to 'de
light in , repeating . continually, even to the
exclusion ofibei; mother tongue. We had
also among our j"athered•collection a single
macaw : this

,As this is the season when ,India-r Mier
shoes are called into requisition, the, 1: I
May like to know something of the OMfir
operandi of their manufacture ; 41 The littion7
ger in Para cannot fail to notice the iangu
lar manner in which the . India-rubber, oboes'
ore transported from; place , to place. Re
will see slaves bearing ,long. poles tl ickly
studded with them, marching •along and
keeping time to a slow discordant chant.—
The shoes are mostly manufactured is the
interior and brought'down the river b the
Indians. The tree (Saphilla , Elasti ) is
f a
exceedingly pee.uliar in appearance. , t has
large.thiek leaves, and reaches the he ht of
eighty and sometimes an hundred feet The
trees are tapped - in the same manner s the
New Englanders tap maple trees, from which
a thick liquid resembling cream flow out.
This is collected in earthen jars, whe nit is
kept until desired for use. The operation
of making the shoes consists in first igniting
the fruit Qf a speciekof palm; which fields
a thick dark smoke. They then ttike a
wooden last, with a handle, and liming
poured the liquid over it, a coating of which
remains, they hold it over the ignited ,fruit;
the actipn of the smoke upon the gum in,
time causesit to become ora black color. Af
ter the requisite number of coats havd been
given in this manner, the shoes are exposed
to the sun to harden. India-rubber 4onsti.
tute one of the principal exports of P4ra.—
More than two-hundred-and-fifty thoisrinfl
shoes are annually exported from this prov
ince; in fact, almost all the India-rubber
consumed in the United States cotes' from
this source."

The bustle of the fight was over; the pris

As the Iroquoisthus spake, his dark i fea
tures were compressed with internal sta
tion ; a big tear gathered 'in his eye long
beforehe reached the close of the sentehce
but slowly uttering what he said, he he'd it
suspended there with such resolute &Num
that it did not .fall, while his eye -beaame
glazed with gathering emotion which lords
alone could not relieve. We never withess
ed a stronger sensation in any. assembhlige : .
and we rejoice for the honor of the -.llbilori
cal SOciety, that it instantly took ordee, as
the first step, for preserving the remaiti: of
the Iroquois in' this. State, to raise a snip, of
money to bring back the remnant ot the
families expatriated last summer; oneoalf
of whom ha l ve already perished in the swamps
of. Missouri. It would indeed seem lilt . the
very, mockery of the true interests of hai@an
ity, for an institution of learning to. givjs itr
best energies-to " the Old lgortality":
ness of deciphering iusariptioneon the gives
of nations, and turn a deaf ear to thsvlast
chapter of their living history, now emitting
before their very eyes. '
