IFrom the Cambridge Advertiser.] The following is a correct ac- count of the surprise of a party of whites by Indians, which took place on the cast bank of Wills creek io what is now known as LufluutTs hickory nut bottom, about one mile west of town In the year 1791 or '92 the Indians having made frequent in- cursions into the the Ohio river, between Wheeling and the Mingo bottom, sometimes killing oreapturing whole families; at other times stenling all the horses belonging to a station or fort, a company consisting of seven men, rendezvoused at a place called the Beech bottom, on the Ohio river, a few miles below whore Wellsburg has been erected. This company were John Whelssi'l, Wil- liam M'Collough, John Hough, Thomas Biggs, Joseph Hedge's, Kinzio Diokorson nnd a Mr. Linn. Their avowed object was to go the Indians towns to steal horses. This was then considered a legal, honorable business, as wo wore tlicn at open war with the Indians. It would only be retaliating upon them in their own wny. Theso seven men were nil trained lo Indian warfare, and a, life in Iho woods from their youth. Perhaps the Western frontier, at no time, could furnish seven men whose souls wore bettor fitted, and whose nerves and sinews were better strung to perform any enterprise i which i-cqiiircd resolution and firmness. They crossed tho Ohio, j and proceeded with cautious and vigilant glinu'cs on their way through the cheerless, dark, and i for all the bonds ihoy are permitted almost, impervious forest, in I lo place on Ihe market, and more j i than sufficient to insure the prompt payment of interest and principal. almost haltin tlit LOVIH Mil. t.

Thore was an amusing and for a time a serious scene in the Senate on Thursday last. Garrett Davis was just concluding a speech on tho alleged Ku-Klux outrages, and was very billcr in lu's references to loading Republican hu charged with attempting to op- press and degrade the South. At that point Genera! Buller entered the Chamber and walked over to tlic Democratic side, and taking a vacant t-Imir beside Mr. Davis, threw his head back, folded his arms, and gave a most impudent and withal ludicrous stare into the hitter's face. As Mr. Davis turned half round lie saw Mr. Butler's po- silioa for Ihe first time, and became very much excited at what almost to be an apparition of the man he had just been denouncing. Recovering himself, he continued to ljurl epithets in Butler's face, and the latter retained his defiant stare. As the venerable Senator followed these with a swinging ges- ture right into Mr. Butler's face, the galleries and Senate burst into merriment. In a moment or so Mr. Davis became so enraged thut he could not proceed, but dropped into his chair, which ho half round, and returned the sltiro, say- ing, "You impudent scoundrel." Jiutler replied, "1 said nothing to you, sir. I don't care a damn for you any way."

A LAW to prevent cruelty to animals has recently passed the Ohio Legislature, which will com- int-nd itself to nil humane people. U is designed to prevent over- driving, overworking, overloading, torturing or conveying in an in human manner any domestic animal, or impounding or yarding the same for a longer period than twelve hours without a sufficient supply of food and water. Also, to provide for the proper dis- position of poor and worn out miiomlg turned into the streets or highways, inflicting fines for the violation of the provisions of the law, ranging from five to fifty dollars. hoad waters of the Sandnslcy and Musliingiim rivers interlock. Iloi-e they made a fine haul, ami set off homeward with (il'tcen horses. They travelled rapidly, only making short haults, lo lot thoir hor.-cs graze, and breathe a short time to recruit their strength and activity. In the pvoning of tlic second dny of their rapid retreat, they arrived at Wills creek, not far from where the town of Cambridge has since been erected. Here Mr. Linn was taken violently sick, and they must stop their inarch, or leave him alone, to perish in the dark and lonely woods. Our frontier men, notwithstanding their rough and unpolished manners, had too much of iny Uncle Toby's "sympathy for to forsake a comrade in distress. They halted, and placed sentinels on their back trail, who remained there till late in Iho night, without seeing any signs of being pursued. Tho sen- tinels on the back trail returned to the camp, Mr. Linn still lying in escrutiating pain. All Ihe simple remedies in their power wore ad- ministered to the sick man, without producing any effect. Being late in the night, they all lay down lo rest, except one who was phiced as guard. Their camp was on the bank of a small brunch. Just before day-break the guard took a small bucket, and dipped some water out of the stream on carry- ing it lo the fire he discovered ihe water to be muddy. The muddy water wsked his'suspicion that the enemy might be approaching them, and were walking down in ll.e stroam. as their footsteps would be noiseless in the water. Ho waked his companions, and communicated his suspicion. They arose, exam- ined the branch a liltle distance, and listened attentively for some lime; but neither saw nor hcui-il anything, and then concluded il must have been raccoons, or some other animals, puddling in the stream. After this cuiiclusion the company all lay down to rest, c.v cept the was stationed just outside of tho light. Happily for them the fire had burned down, and only a few coals afforded a dim light to point out where thev lay. The enemy had come siler.tly down the creek, rs Uic scnlinel suspec'ed, to within ten or twelve feet the >lace where they and fired several guns over Ilia bank. Mi- Linn. Iho man, was Ijing with liis side towards the bank, and vc- coived nearly nil the bulls which wet-eat first tired. The Indians tremendous yells, mouti't- oil the bank with lottdo'l rifles, war- clubs and rushed upon our men, who fled barefooted and without arms. Mr. Linn, Thomas arid Joseph Hedges were killed in ar d noar the camp. Wil- liam JM'Collough had run but u short distance when he was fired at by the enemy. At the instant the (ire was given, he jumped into a quagmire and fell; the Indians supposing they had killed him, ran past in pursuit of others. HOSDOII extricated himself, and so madohis escape. He fell in with John Hough, and came into Wheeling. John Whelzi'l and Kinzie Dicker- son rnot in thoir retreat, ami re- turned together. Those who made their escape were without anus, without clothing or provision. Their sufferings were great; but this they bore with stoical indiffer- ence, as it was the fortune of war. two entire days, without just a few minutes at u lime, to let the- horses graze. From the circumstance ol heir rapid re- treat with the horses, it was sup- posed that no pursuit could pos- sibly overtaken them, but that fate had decreed that this party of Indians shoulr meet and defeat them. As soon as the stragglers arrived at Wheeling, Csipt.'john M'Coilough collected a party of mnn, and went to Wills creek, and buried the unfortunate men who fell in near fie camp. The Indians had mangled the dead bodies nt a most barbarous rate. Thus was closed the horse stealing tragedy. Of the four who survived this tragedy, none are now living to tell the story of their suffering. They continued to hunt and to fight as long ns the war lasted. John Whetzcl and Dickerson died in the country neat' Wheeling-. John Hough djed a few years since, near Columbia, Il.irrilton county, Ohio. The bravo (Japt.

Cassette.] Conductor Torn Clark, of the Hannibal and St.. Joseph Railroad, relates a singular incident that oc- curred on Im train Friday evening. At Quincy a lady got on the eors bearing in her arms a little child about four months old, tastefully dressed in while, for which she manifested the deepest affection. When the train reached Rhelbina. another lady got on board, holding in her anus a four months' old ba- by, the exact counterpart of the one first mentioned, and dressed iu precisely the way, and took i her seat directly in fruiit of No. 1. Just as the tr.iin started both lii- i dies hsid occasion lo get up and j through tho car, and each I deposited her baby carefully on the seat. On returning each mistook her bt'tl, and, singular to relate, made a mistake in the babies. No 1. carefully lificd in her arms the bthyof No. 2; Xo. 2 caressed most fondly the litlle clu-rub bi'louging to No, 1. For twenty-two miles the two mothers rode on the train, each nursing tho other's child for her own. On reaching Macon, the Siielbiua lady started out of the cars, and was on the point of step- ping on Ihe platform with Uic oilier lady's infnnt in her arms, when tho conductor, who had noiicerl the involuntary change, called her attention to Ihe fact, Slic was, of coursu, greatly surprised, and could scarcely believe it possi- ble, but on returning lo the car and compaiing notes as well as babies with the other lady, iho mistake discovered and promptly recti- fied. Each lady pressed closer to her tresst the little cherub she had i come so near losing-, and after a irofusion of explanations and apol- jgies, which were only terminated the ringing of the bell, they separated, and each went on her way rejoicing. It is needless to say that Tom Clark enjoyed theaf- rair hugely, and thai he received the heary'ilumks of the two inoth- jrs who had come so near being placed in awkward predicament. Whether the Indians who defeated our heroes followed in pursuit from their towns, or were a party of warriors, who accidentally hap- pened to fall in with them, tins never been ascertained.

The fact of his boing au intimate friend of Charles Sunnier, led many to suppose that he would oppose annexation. And lie certainly did labor with com- mendable zeal to find causes for opposition to il. For a long time he kepi his own counsels, or so evenly balanced them as to leave us in doubt as to what course he would pursue; till one day he was approached by a friend about rs follows: -'Doctor, we have been here some time, and have learned some things which hardly ad- mit a difference of opinion. We have found an island of unsurpass- ed beauty, richness of soil, and sa- lubrity of L'liui'Ue, equal in extent to the State of Ohio, and capable of adding vast wealth to the United Stales. We have found here an honest, simple-minded people, and whose oveiy eflort to rise in the scale of human progress has been baffled by a few unprincipled, de- signing men. Intestine wars military oppressions have crushed them down to the earth, and they cry to us for help. They ask the protection of our Government. They ask for the standard of free dom to be placed on the Gem of the Antilles. They plead with us, in deep sincerity, lo unfold the grand old flag of liberty on their island, and them pc-ace. Shall we leave this suffering people still lo groan beneath their load, when an encouraging word from you, to the Congress and people of the United States, may save The doctor excitedly replied: "You have convinced me! I will go for annexation with all my heart." You all know Brother Wade. He is a plain, honest, straightforward, out-spoken man. It does not tako long to get his opinion upon any subject; and his opinionsgpncrally are very decided ones. His pa- tience has been sorely tried by do lays, occasioned by tho combina- tion of his associates against him. Not a thing has been done which will add an iota to the information gathered iu Santo Domingo, more than could have been laid before Congress three weeks ago. His judgment will, I think, be fully sus- tained by members of the press ac- companying the expedition. While in Santo Doming-) we of- ten heard of the ignorance and barbarity of the Hnyliens, and gave the reports little credit. Stories of Cannibalism seemed so that felt I almost ashamed lo in- quire inlo the matter. Mr. Hep- burn, a citizen of Port-au-Prince for thirty years, however, gave the following tacts That a large por lion of the people in Ihe back country are worsh'ppers of the God Voodou, an African requires human sacrifices at tho hands of his votaries. In 1805 while Jefrard was President of the Republic, four men and four wo men were convicted of killing and eating a little girl about seven year of age. The eight persons were condemned and publicly executed by being shot back of the fort in front of the town. Mr. Hepburn was one of many who witnessed the execution. This story was confirmed by Mr. Roumain, for Haytian Minister in Washington and General Jefrard himself, who ordered the execution. Both o these gentlemen are now exiled in Kingston, where I saw and con versed with them. I also learne that this sect now numbers at teas two hundred thousand in Hayti and that since Jefrard left, the have held their heathen dances up on the public square in Port-au Prince. But a. few weeks hay passed since a priestess of the or der was arrested for a similar of fense. and committed to prison. It alleged that she defied the author! ties, and demanded to be at once released, or she would bring a horde of Voodoux into the city, and destroy it. She was released. It is believed, among respectable citizens, that Salnave, in his time, so far yielded to the Voodou influ- ence as, at one time, to attend one of their barbarous feasts, and par- ticipate in a bath of human blood. It is said that their God required a sacrifice of one hundred children at a time, in order to render the gov- ernment of Salnave permanent, and that white and colored children were missing all over Hayti, while black children were not disturbed. The prejudices existing between the three classes (whites, colored-j-or mulattoes blacks) is very strong. None but pure blacks arc supposed to be initiated into the secrets of the Voodou Order. It is possible that these stories may- have been exaggerated. And it Is also possible tbat they may not come up to the facts. Oue thing is certain, that voodouism has, and does still exert a large influence in the affairs of Hayti. People are afraid, and speak of it in whispeis. The Rev. Mr. Bird, in his hiHory of Hayti, who from his long resi- dence there, passes over the matter with very brief paragraphs, and rather condemns ihe execution o! the eight persons. A Huge Mastodon. [CoIembusStatesnum of Friday.] Part of" the upper jaw and upper portion of the head of one of the largest mastodons j'et discovered, attracted much attention at the capital yesterday. The bones were unearthed near Chillicothe last sutnmuf, and found their way to this city yesterday. High water had locseued the roots a large sycamore tree that had stood on the bank of a small stream iu Ross county for ages. The tree fell and exposed the wonder to view, and the farmer who owned the premises subsequently dug for several ro Is around, but found nothing but lln: part alluded to above. This he sold lo Dr. L. P. Harris and Rev. D. I. Foust, of Crestline, who in- lentled to use it in illustrations of lectures. This project was not very successful, however, and the remains arc now here for sole to Le State, the valuation being about welve hundred dollars. The portion of the animal pre- is the upper jaw and pait of head. The frontal bone measures thirty inches across, ourtecn and a half inches being he measurement of this part of a ery large elephant Four of the et-th are presetved. The tusks vere sunk two and one-half fee in he sockets, and the sockets show hat the tusks were each twelve nches in diameter at the widest joint. The weight is one hundred nd fifty pounds. Comparison has been made with he complete skeleton of a odon in a Boston museum, and it demonstrated that the Ross :oucty animal was forty feet lonj Hope well School, Source Tp. EDITOR JSFFEKSONLAN there was to bean axamiuation of the Hopeweli school of Monroe Tp., on March 17tb, we dropped in on the afternoon of that listened to the following per- formances. Music, Scripture les- son. Spelling, Reading, Writing, Mental and Written Arithmetic, Select Reading, Decla- mations and Essays, which were very good. Music is now in- troduced into the school as ore of the regular branches. The method of using the Scriptures in opening the school is as follows: The Teacher reads one verse, then the class in concert read next, which is followed by questions. The read- ing was good especially of one of the second reader classes which we regard as equal to that of schools of a higher grade. A lesson was given iu Penmanship; and Copy- books were exhibited for parents and others to examine. And we judge from the improvement made that this branch has been one ot the specialities. Geography is taught in part by map drawing. The class drew the State of Penn- sylvania, which was almost a fac simile of the original. The select reading was by J. S. Orr. supposed speech of John Adams. Essay class, Miss Maggie Allison, Geo- graphy. Maggie Dixou, Going h) school, Melissa Little, Industry at home, Ida Allison, Honor and trnth, J. S. Orr, School, Oakley Little, Our school. They ail showed a degree of taste on the part of composers. This is a new district formed by taking off the corners of four others. Most of the scholars have had little op- portunity of going to school. But under ihe skiilful management of Iheir teacher. Mr. Asberry Neel, ihey have made remarkable pro- gress. One thing we were par- ticulaily pbas-.-d with, was the order a'nd drill of the school. No regiment of soldiers could obey the word of command more proraytly than they did. Eg. The teacher would tall out the Arithmetic class A, pronouncing one at which the class were in- stantly on their feet, "two" and they all started for the recitation seat. There was no lagging. But ihey were prompt in taking their places and as prorapt in answering questions and solving problems. The occasion was interesting to parents and all present. And we went home well pleased with the thought of the good work which is being accomplished in Hopeweli school. A FRICXD OF EDUCATION. ncl'iding the eet high. tusks, and twenty .1 Family Without the paper. Nothing presents a sadder com nentary upon the present un- .lealthy condition ot our once oved and prosperous country than lie large number of families both n the city and country, but more jspecially in the laUer, that bub- scribe to no paper of any kind. Hundreds and thousands of families are thus growing up iu utter ig- norance of what is daily transpiring n the world around uorant of the mighty events of to- day. But who can tell the vast amount of injury that is being inflicted upon the rising wbo are to take our places in the busy world at no distant up without any knowledge of the present, the past, or any study of the future; and this ignorance, too. being imbued into them by the sanction of those who should, and oubtless do, know better, did Ihey only think of Ihe injurious ef- fects of their insane course. Let lha head of every family think of this, and place in Ihe hands of lhos.e for whom he is responsible the means of acquiring a thorough knowledge of the moving panorama iu which we enact our parts. A Iteniiirknble Child. [From the Uavrollton Ga-iette.] We are told a singular story by a party acquainted with the facis, with reference to a child of Mrs. Lizzie Walker, of Whitehall, the second daughter of our friend, Alex. Lakin. During the period i.n which Mrs. W. was encefate, she was considerably annoyed by the visits to her house of a slrunge cat, which had made sever.d vicious at- tacks on one of her children. Fear- ing that the cat would inflict injury upon ihe child, she availed herself of the first opportunity to kill the animal. When this was presented, she caught the cat, an to make short work of it, she to >k it to the wood pils and cut its head off, which fell before her in such a manner that she momentarily wit- nessed its death-grimaces. Last week the lady gave birth to a daugh- ter, and it was discovered that the babe did not possess the right hand. On the stub of the arm is a perfect- ly-formed cat's face, but wilLout ears. He Couldn't Tell n Lie. Alf. Burnett, in one of his let- terp to The People, of Indianapolis, lelaies the following anecdote "By the good story is told of Ben Butler and his notorious honesty. A short lime since Ben Butler'and Wendell Phillips had business with the President, and arm-in aria proceeded to call upcn him. The Presidedt was busy and sent them word that he would see them presently. Phillips and But- ler strolled out into tho conserva- tory, in the rear of the White House, thence into the garden. Butler and Phillips wore engaged in an anima- ted conversation upon subject. But- ler became slightly excited. "A large hatchet, belonging to the gardener, war beside the tree. Butler casually picked it up. and, while talking, he made several deep gashes with it in some of General Grant's favorite trees. Juncture, ihe Preridont reappearing, Butler hastily secreted it under his coat- tuils.'' After tne bompliments of the day, the Piesieont spied for the first time bis mutilated tree, and, with tones of velie-aiiMu-e, inquired who bad been cutting aud gashing lliat tree. After a few moments'- pause, Buller stepped bravely up to the President, look him'by tile hand, saj'ing "Mr. Prcpident, I cannot teil a lie I cannot tP.il a lie Wendell Phillips Md Tin: following of woman's love appears in au English contempora- ry A French woman will love her husband if he is either witty or chivalrous; a German, if he is con- stant and faithful; a Dutchwoman if he does not disturb her case and; comfort too much; a Spanish woman if be wreaks vengence on tlif-se who incur her displeasure ;an Italian woman ir he is dreamy anrt poclical; a Danish woman if ho thinks her native country is the bri-litest and happiest on earth; a Russian woman if he despises all westerners as miserable Saabarains: an English woman if he succeeds in inaugurating himself with the court and arristocrary; an Ameri- can woman if he has plenty of money. THE Mayfield, Knetucky, Demo- crat has the following "A most remarkable circumstance has oe curred in our county lately, at the residence of Dr. J. R.
