Then they clubbed together and bought a young man's head right of 1481 acres, .which thay presented to her nsa dower; and this evening she was mnrried to a re-ipectable planter, who receives with her the 2962 acres in addition, from the government.

A XOITHX^N TA la the ancient he«th«a itnM ofi^ 9«xoo*, tlMir« wdt once a great war with tba DaAM- Adatbero, Duke of Saxopy. who had goui|w(hj it, now in ihe hourofaarnMlcooflict, »1 t^ beful of his  people. There flew ihe arrowa aod U>e j«veUm; there alaoced many ridiant bMw on both i^idea; and there «hone many gold «bieUl* tbromih  the dark 6ght. But the Saxo^, al every ailaok, we-e repulsed,and wtte already eo far driven back, that the Blorining of a alMp bigbt gpuW deliver the army and the country, disper«® th« ei)e»ny and change a ruinous .»nd destructiv« ili^iit lult' t de cisive victory.  forced his fiery charger before the squadron; vain be shouted through the fields the .sached wf»rds. "Freedom and Father land!" in Vnin atrenrned hi warm blood, and the blood of the foe, over his resplendent armour. The fioialorous muss gave way; and the enemy secure on the height^ lojoiml, in their decided victory. Again rushed Adnilwro on wUh a few gallant warriors; again the faint hearted fell behind; and again the enemy rejoired.  Ms it yet time,' said AdallK)ro; and again he shouted, 'Forward! and il we concur, I vow to the gods, to set fire to the four comer.s of iny caslle, and it shall blaze forth on a bright funeral pile, in honoi of our victory and our deliverance.'  Again was the attack renewed, hut again th( Saxions fled—and the enemy sent forth shouts of  Then cricd Adalboro^lowPISWlIïÎfc Vhole army, *If we fetgrn victorious from thre charge ye gods, [ devote myself to you a .solemn sacrifice.!'  Shuddering the warriors hastened after him but fortune was still agoinst them; the boldest (jjll—th« bravest fled. Then Adall»ero, in deep ailliction. rallied the scattering band, and all that remained of tho great nobles collected round him, and spoki thus:—  'Thou art our ruin, for thou hast coiin.seircd this war.'  Adalbero replied, 'My ca.stlo and inysolf I give lo the gods for victory, and what can 1 more?'  The sad multitude called only the more to him. 'Thou art our ruin; for thou hast counselled this war.'  Then Adalbero tore open his bosom, and implored tho Mighty God of Thunder to pierce it wjth a thunder-bolt, or lo give the victory to his army. Bui there came no bolt from Heaven, and the squadron sfood timid, and followed not (he call.  In boundless despair, Adalbero at last said 'There enjoins only that which is most dear to me. Wife and child 1 offer to ihte, thou God of armies, for .iclory. My beautiful blooming wife,—my only heart-loved child—they belong to the Great' Ruie'r ih Asgard; with my own hand will I sacrifice them to thee hut I implore thee, give nae the victory!'  Scarcely were thc.se words uttered, when fearful thundcrings rolled over the field of battle, and clouds gathered round the cambattancs; and the Saxons with fearful crie.s, shouted as with one voice, ' Tl godsare with us!' With invincible couragu forward rushed hosts:—the height was carried by ihe stoFm of Adalbero, with sudden shudder, saw the enemy flying thro' the field.  The conqueror returned home in triumph; and in all parts of delivered Saxony, came wives and chil-dien forth with outstretched arms greeting thetr husbands and fathers. But Adalbero what awaited him; and every smile of an aiTectionate wife, pierced, as with a poisoned dart his anguished heart. At last ihey came before his magnificent castle. IJe was not able to look up, as the beautiful Simlide met him at the gate, w ith her daughter in her hand, while the little one always leaped and cried Father! Father!! beloved Father!!!'  Adalbero looked round on his |)eopIe, in order to strengthen himself; even there ho mot quivering eyelids and bitter tears; for among his warrior.«, many had heard his horrible vow. He dismissed ihem CO their families, feeling what b>Tppy men, he, the most unhappy, was sending to their comes; then rofJo into thecaslle and sending the domestics away, under various pretences, sprung from his horse, clo-ed the gates with thundering sound, securing them carefully, and pressed his beloved wife and child to his heart, shedding over thoni u torrent bf tears.  'What is the matter husband!" said the astonished Similde.  'Why do you weep, father stammered the Utile one.  'Wo will first prepare an ofleting to the Gods,' re|)lied Adulberoii; and iheii 1 shall relate every thing, to you. Come to me soon to (he hearth.  '1 will kindle the flanoe, and fetch, in tha meantime, the iniplemeuta for sacrifice,' said the sweet Similde; and the little one cried out clapping her hands.  'I also will help, I also will be there,' ond skipped away with her mother.  These words '1 also will help; I also will be there,' the hero repeated, as disolved, in grief, ho stood by the flaming pile, with his drawn ^word in his trembling hand. He lamented aloud over the joyful child, and the graceful obedient wife, who brou|jht the bowl and pitcher, perfuming pan and taper, used in sacrifices. Then it passed in his n.ind that the vow could not be valid, for such sorrow could not find a place in the heart of man. Hut the answer was given in dreadful peals of thunder down from the heaven.  1 know,' said he, sighing heavily, 'your thunder has assisted u»,and now your thunder calUoi) your devoted believer for tho performance of his vow.'  Similde began to tremble as the frightful truth burst upon her, and with soft tears, she said—'Ah halt thou made a vow! Ah husband, 1 see no victim! Shall human blood-'  Adalbero covered hia eyea with his hands, and sobbed «0 terribly that it echoed through the hall and the little one terrified, aunk together.  Similde knew well such vows in aocirnt tinics. Sbe looked entreatingly to the Lord, and aaid— 'Keroove the child.'  'Botbl Both!!' I mustP then murmurred Adalbero ¡and Siopilde; with a violant eflbri, forcinp back her a ire, aaid lo Ih* Utile one, quick, child and bind ibia handkerohief oa tbina eyea; thy father haa brougiiia preeeot for tliee, and will not give it to thee.  'My father look« not aa if he would give mo, a preaent,** eighed the child.  'Tbou ehalt aee; thou «halt ace pretenlly,' aaul Similde hurriedly; aadaaahe placed the bandage over the ayes of the child, abo could no longer ren-traio her laan, but tbay fell no softly that the little ooa kàaw it oot.  The tender mother aow tore the drapery from her snow white hoaom, and kneeUog before her aa-cTifiewr,'beckoned thai she mifjht bo the first vic-  lingercr, 'else the poor child be «o terrified!^  Adalboro raisnd his drtaulful ateel'^'lhen ro^r^ the thunder and fla.xlied the linghlaiiig through lhi> building. Bpeeohlcss sank tho Ihree to theearib.  As the evening breeze rushed through the br^ ki-n windows, the little ono rai!«ed her head fi^m wiiich trie band«ge had (iillen, hnd said—'.MotbjVr what present has my father hroeght lo meT The sweet voice awakened both ihe parent*.

Fur distant over llie southern mountains, roared t'le ».emj esi, where m mv years afterwards St. Boniface conveited uiibelicrtff to the true faith.  THE MORMONS. The St. Louis Gawtte of the 16th inst., in quoting from a correspondent, says that there are rumors •>fapprehended di.stui bances with the Mormons. They, as you know,occupy Caldwell county exclusively. It .seems that one of their number waa^^, ... t ie day of election, in Daviess county, and at thai-*' ^olls got embroiled in a diffirulty that ended in his tleath. It is said that some of the MornKiOa have been maltreoted hy their own body, and bavespreaa iheir complaints in'o neighbr^ring counties. It ¡1« said, also, that it ia difficult to collect debfp anJO% I hem; and .that olficers have bren j»ut iii diireM who have endeavored to make collection. It is aaid alto, that some persons, who have come in anwng them have been forced to sign obligations in regard to the purchase oflands, the nature of which,i^owever, if the attempt ever has been made, I have not learnt. —Whether all or any of these causes have led to the difficulties which lire apprehended, I cannot preiend to say. There is no doubl, at any rate, that some alarm and expectation of collisi<mpreTaila adjoining counties.—Joe Smith, it ia said, braga of his forces—setting them at something like ^ItOO able l)odiod men. I'liey |)olled only 263; but no doubt large additions have been made to their num-l)er within a year, who, ofcoursc, are not qualifi^ voters. Gne fact is ccriain, that Joe has taken him- ^ self a young girl'to^wife—and prorni8e^his|followers, that of his lineage, there shall be a son, who sliould be to them prophet, priest and king. Unluckily, however, the prist and king turned out to he Vi female. But I suppose tho faiihful will receive her as hypothenes and queen, and nursing noothor in the church.  Tho Mormons are in expectation of fresh recruiti from the east—and i observe a statement in the . newsyppeis, ihat 500 are on their way to Ihe land ofCanaun, which they expect to ooci'py after turn-' ingout the heathen who now' cumber the ground I here.  A NEW METHOD OF MAKING BOOTS AND SHOES.  A man in New York has inventejJJaJnew way of manufacturing boots and shies, which, is thus par-lii'iilarly described:  "Isf, The whole lower portion, or sole and ia-sole, of the boot or shoe, is made with but one seam, instead of two, as at present; thus increasing tho facility and durability of the manufacture.  2dly, I he boots and shoes are much more beautiful in appearance during their whole wearing, in conseqneneo of the upjwr leather being turned from under the foot,and inserted in a peculiar chann^ cut in the insole, which prevents the upper leather both from cracking and wrinkling, and thus inoraas-ing the value without enhancing the coat of tha article.  ;idly. By dispensing w th the inseam, the boot or shoe is rendered "ar more easy to the foot, thus prevcniing corns and bunnions; and there being no welt requiring »scraps to fill up the hollow space between the .sole and insole, which is now occasioned by the welt, the part on which the foot reals does not become irregular and uneven, nor is the solo so soon thrown out of place, and unequally worn away."  S'i'ATUE OF WASHINGTON.  Four voars ago Congress ordered that a statue of Washington should be made, to be placed in the splendid rotunda of the Capitol Washington City. Tho work was commiiied to the hands of the ceíe-briied Sculj>lor, Mr. Greenough, who, since the deuth of Canova, stands first in bis prnfaaelnrt  Mr. F. Cooper has recently received alaúarfrom Mr. (ircenough, giving the information that the siatuo is in rapid progress, and will soon ba finiah* ed.
