Milea, of Miles Station. III., made a drawiug of it. which ia preaeute.l here, and uccoinpauied this with a wrilteu description, obvionsly of the moat authentic kind. Ilowrote: "I first saw it in I.'^'i:!, and aincethat datu bare seen it iiiauy huudreda of times before it was deslroyed diiriug tbo late civil war. I must auy that it ia a miatake for any one lo aay that' it waa painted ou the rocka. It waa not paiuteil on thu rocka, nor waa there a ilrop of paint uaed iu ita cooalruction. Tbe bird, if bird it wna. waa cut or ibis-eled or picked into the solid rock of the bluff, but how or by whom 1 know not. Ita body waa that of a lion, ita head aud homa that of a deer, and ita wiuga that of a bird, la theie anything about this that looks like a horrible man-eater.' I do uot believu that anch an animal ever existid. 1 deny that ita existence ia compatible with-uatural laws, aud 1 aasert that tbe piasa bird was made by aome race well acquainted with aoulpture to commemorate the uoblo deada of  some great jior-Kouage of ancient timea.
