Thrilling Surrender of .Mickenock ihe Umvu. One afteinoon in Ihe spring of 1829, a young Indian, named Mickcnock, of thu Ottawa tribe, on the eastern shore of Lake Michigan, having indulged too freely in the use of the fire drink, commenced a quarrel with, and finally stabbed to the heart, a son of one of the chiefs. Knowing that he must suffer death by the hands of some one of the family, whose relative he had killed, he im- mediately collected his own family and fled into the woods.

Despairing at length cither of finding his enemy or avenging himself upon any of the blood relations, the chief dutcr- mined to avail himself of the privilege iil- lowed by Indian custom, and to avenge hiin- aelf upon ono of the relatives of the wife of thu murderer. Mickcnock, although clfec- tu.dly concealed from the old chief, was m-v- crtheliss conversant through sonic of his friends, of all that was transpiring in the chief's uigwam; and so soon as he learned the determination to avenge bis son's death upon one of his wife's relatives, he im- mediately sent in word to the old chief's wig- v.-am, that upon the day of the muuting of the great Council, which was then soon to beheld, he would deliver himself up to a- tone for the life of his son. The chief re- information with evident gratifi- cation. A few weeks passed .iway, the lodge was erected, and the Council at length as- sembled. The chief communicated the in- lelligt-nce which he had received from his son's mmdurer, and it was agreed that no bli- siness should be transacted until Mickenock should appear. The Council sat in silence until about twelve o'clock, uben suddenly the brave Mickenock bounded into the midst nfthc Council, calmly surveyed the nssem- round him; then taking out his flint, he struck a spark, and lighted his pipe, and smoked it in silence; the uycs of all the Council and bis little family were fixed intensely upon him. At length Mickenock arose and ad- dressing himself to the chief, said, "I killed your son, he was a young brave, he did mo no wrong, he was my friend. 1 drank the fire drink, the fire drink made me kill vour son; Mickenock is very sorry, and dcse'rvcs to die." Then the oldest brother of ihe deceased, he drew a knife from his bosom. said Mickenock, "is the knife that drank the heart's blood of your brother; take it, like a brave man avenge your brother's death." This said, Mickc- nock instantly laid bare his whole The brother spat upon his hand, clenched his knife with a death-grasp, and drew up his arm.

I c.vamined the drops on ihe tobacco leaves, and satisfied myself they had fallen perpendicularly on the leaves. I next examined for the extent of ihe shower, and ascertained it to havo been from forty to sixiy yards in width, and six or eight hundred yards in length. A forest on the east, and a" field of weeds on the wrst, prevented our trncing it beyond the green tobacco. It was thinly scattered, probably a drop for every ten or fifteen feel, although irregularly dispersed. 1 gathered from the leaves some particles which appeared to havo been clear blood, uncombincd with any thing else; others seemed to he finely pulverized muscles, and blood mixed, and others composed of muscu- lar, fibre, and adipons mailer interspersed, one portion of which I found an oily exuda- tion issuing from, caused by the heat of the sun.

THE BANKRUPT LAW. The N. Y. Evening I'ost gives the follow- ing brief synopsis of the most important pro- visions of ihe bankrupt Law. 1.
