The present High prices of 5 20 Bonds in connection with the in creasing prospects of a Market for the new government Loans at a Large reduction in the rate of in Terest should induce holders of 5-20s to look for investments that will return them a fair income. We know of no Security of ored that will pay is largely or any offering More ample Security than the 7 Simotu Gold interest Bonds of the Northern Puc Ilic Railroad com Pany. These bends Are secured by mortgage on the lands of the company Over fifty million As Well As on the Road franchises Telegraph lines we see by a accent statement made by Tho president of the Union Pacific Railroad company that that company has sold about acres of land at an average of per acre. The lands of the Northern Pacific it is confidently believed will realize to the com Pany a higher average As they have a comparatively Small Quantity of Barren or inferior lands. With j such a Domain the Security offered 1 by that company is surely ample j , the Indian Surprise near Cam Bridge. From the Cambridge advertiser the following is a Correct account of the Surprise of a party of Whites by indians which took place on the cast Bank of wills Creek to what is now known As Lull Butts Hickory nut Bottom about one mile West of town in the year 1791 or 92 the indians having made frequent incursions into the the Ohio River Between Wheeling and the Mingo Bottom sometimes killing of recapturing 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 Whelski a Wil Liam m Collough John Hough Thomas Biggs Joseph Hedges Kinzio Dio Korson and a or. Linn. Their avowed object was to go the indians towns to steal horses. This was then considered a Legal honorable business As to wore to lion at open War with the indians. It would Only be retaliating upon them in their own any. These seven men were nil trained to Indian warfare and a life in Iho Woods from their youth.

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 Kun flux outrages and was very Billr in la s references to loading Republican he charged with attempting to of press and degrade the South. At that Point Genera Buller entered the chamber and walked Over to tic democratic Side and taking a vacant Timir beside or. Davis threw his head Back folded his arms and gave a most impudent and withal ludicrous stare into the hitter s face. As or. Davis turned half round lie saw or. Butler s to Silica for the 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 Jurl 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 or. Butler s face the galleries and Senate burst into merriment. In a moment or so or. Davis became so enraged thut he could not proceed but dropped into his chair which to half round and returned the Altiro say ing you impudent Jbutler replied "1 said nothing to you sir.

Cambridge Ohio. A Law to prevent cruelty to animals has recently passed the Ohio legislature which will com int and 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 Miro mag 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 Sand sly and Musli Ingrim Rivers interlock. Iloie they made a Fine haul Ami set off homeward with in then horses. They travelled rapidly Only making Short faults to lot their Graze and breathe a Short time to recruit their strength and activity. In the phoning of tic second any of their rapid Retreat they arrived at wills Creek not far from where the town of Cambridge has since been erected. Here or. Linn was taken violently sick and they must Stop their Anarch 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 sentinels on the Back Trail returned to the Camp or. Linn still lying in Ecru Tilting pain. All the simple remedies in their Power wore administered to the sick Man without producing any effect. Being late in the night they All Lay Down to rest except one who was priced 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 to the fire he discovered the water to be Muddy. The Muddy water asked his suspicion that the enemy might be approaching them and were walking Down in Stream. As their footsteps would be noiseless in the water. To waked his companions and communicated his suspicion. They arose exam ined the Branch a Little distance and listened attentively for some Lime but neither saw nor Hui in anything and then concluded in must have been raccoons or some other animals puddling in the Stream. After this cd inclusion the company All Lay Down to rest cent 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 Down the Creek is Pic so Linel suspected to within ten or twelve feet the lace where they and fired several guns Over Ilia Bank. I Linn. Iho Man was icing with Liis Side towards the Bank and pc coined nearly nil the bulls which wet eat first tired. The indians tremendous yells Mouti t Oil the Bank with lotto l rifles War clubs and rushed upon our men who fled barefooted and without arms. Or. Linn Thomas arid Joseph Hedges were killed in a d Noar the Camp. Wil Liam pm 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. Hos Doii extricated himself and so Madoris escape. He fell in with John Hough and came into Wheeling. John Shelzi l and Kinzie Dicker son not in their 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 indifference 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 of 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 should meet and defeat them. As soon As the stragglers arrived at Wheeling Csipo John m Conlough collected a party of Man and went to wills Creek and buried the unfortunate men who fell in near Fie Camp. The indians had mangled the dead bodies it 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 is the War lasted. John Whetzel and Dickerson died in the country neat Wheeling. John Hough died a few years since near Columbia county Ohio. The Bravo Jap. William m col Lough fell in 1812, in the Battle of tic Campaign with Gen. Hull. The wrong baby an Al Varil Exchange in thai cars. From Tho St. Joseph to cassette conductor torn Clark of the Hannibal and St. Joseph Railroad relates a singular incident that occurred on in train Friday evening. At Quincy a lady got on the ears 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 Phelbina. Another lady got on Board holding in her anus a four months old baby the exact counterpart of the one first mentioned and dressed in precisely the Way and took i her seat directly in fruit of no. 1. Just As the started both Lii i Dies Sid occasion to get up and j through Tho car and each i deposited her baby carefully on the seat. On returning each mistook her by to and singular to relate made a mistake in the babies. No 1. Carefully Lif cd in her arms the by Hoof no. 2 to. 2 caressed most fondly the Little Clu rub by lodging 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 Sii Elbiza lady started out of the cars and was on the Point of step Ping on the platform with Pic Oiler lady s infant in her arms when Tho conductor who had Noii Cerl the involuntary change called her attention to the fact slip was of course greatly surprised and could scarcely believe it Possi ble but on returning to the car and comparing notes As Well As babies with the other lady Iho mistake discovered and promptly Recti fied. Each lady pressed closer to her Tress the Little Cherub she had i come so near losing and after a profusion of explanations and apol Ogies 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 Thea Rair hugely and thai he received the Heary Ilu mks of the two Winoth hrs 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 happened to fall in with them tins never been ascertained.

His misfortune is that be was born with a Silver spoon in his Mouth. He probably somewhat spoiled in his raising. Various Little Inci dents give evidence of this. For instance if engaged in Conversa Tion with you and gains your earn est attention As he generally does before you Are aware he abruptly leaves you without Opo Togy or any apparent like a spoiled boy. His egotism crops out by changing the topic of discussion something like this by the Bye did i Ever Tell you of a circumstance that occurred while i was travelling with lord a., b. Or in the South of Europe of course you never did. And he tells it. You Are interested but if you undertake to interest him in turn he leaves you. Nothing but books can interest him. He lives in a world of books and his phraseology is largely copied from them. He makes his own plans and tolerates no opposition to them. Having been accustomed to Wield the Power which attaches to wealth he does in in a kind of reckless Mariner yet without shoeing any ill humor. No Man is belter qualified to build up such an institution As Cornell University when it is understood Thalas plans of anybody else unless those plans Are found in approved be something new and leave h s judgement greatly at Lault.

The fact of his boing a intimate Friend of Charles sunnier led Many to suppose that he would oppose annexation. And lie certainly did labor with commendable Zeal to find causes for opposition to in. 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 is follow doctor we have been Here some time and have Learned some things which hardly admit a difference of opinion. We have found an Island of unsurpassed Beauty Richness of soil and a Lubritz of l Liui be 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 Ovey Effort 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 to unfold the grand old Flag of Liberty on their Island and them pc Ace. Shall we leave this suffering people still to 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 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 Are very decided ones. His patience 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 in Santo Domingo More than could have been Laid before Congress three weeks ago. His judgment will i think be fully sustained by members of the press accompanying the expedition. While in Santo doming we of ten heard of the ignorance and barbarity of the in aliens and gave the reports Little credit. Stories of cannibalism seemed so that Felt i almost ashamed to in quire Inlo the matter. Or. Hep Burn a citizen of port a Prince for thirty years however gave the following facts that a Large por lion of the people in the Back country Are Worsh papers of the god voodoo an african requires human sacrifices at Tho hands of his votaries. In 1805 while Jerrard was president of the Republic four men and four women 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. Or. Hepburn was one of Many who witnessed the execution. This Story was confirmed by or. Roumain for Haytian minister in Washington and general Jerrard 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 Jerrard left the have held their Heathen dances up on the Public Square in port a Prince. But a. Few weeks Hay passed since a priestess of the or Der was arrested for a similar of sense. 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 Voo Doux 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 voodoo influence As at one time to attend one of their barbarous feasts and participate 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 government of Salnave permanent and that White and coloured children were missing All Over Hayti while Black children were not disturbed. The prejudices existing Between the three classes Whites coloured a or mulattoes Blacks is very Strong. None but pure Blacks arc supposed to be initiated into the secrets of the voodoo order. It is possible that these stories May have been exaggerated. And it is also possible that they May not come up to the facts. Oue thing is certain that voodoo ism has and does still exert a Large influence in the affairs of Hayti. People Are afraid and speak of it in whispers. The Rev. Or. Bird in his Hilory of Hayti who from his Long Resi Dence there passes Over the matter with very Brief paragraphs and rather condemns the execution of the eight persons. A huge Mastodon. of Friday part of the upper jaw and upper portion of the head of one of the largest mastodons j it discovered attracted much attention at the capital yesterday. The Bones were unearthed near Chillicothe last Sut Muf and found their Way to this City yesterday. High water had loss eyed the roots a Large Sycamore tree that had stood on the Bank of a Small Stream in Ross county for Ages. The tree fell and exposed the wonder to View and the Farmer who owned the premises subsequently dug for several to is around but found nothing but Len part alluded to above. This he sold Lodr. L. P. Harris and Rev. D. I. Foust of Crestline who in Len led to use it in illustrations of lectures. This project was not very successful however and the remains arc now Here for sole to be 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 our teen and a half inches being he measurement of this part of a Ery Large elephant four of the it the Are preserved. The tusks vere sunk two and one half fee in he sockets and the sockets show hat the tusks were each twelve inches in diameter at the widest joint. The weight is one Hundred and fifty pounds. Comparison has been made with he Complete Skeleton of a Odon in a Boston museum and it demonstrated that the Ross Octy animal was forty feet Lonj Hope Well school source to. Editor Jaffek Solan there was to bean Laxami nation of the Hopewell school of Monroe tp., on March 17tb, we dropped in on the afternoon of that listened to the following performances. Music scripture Les son. Spelling Reading writing mental and written arithmetic select Reading Decla nations and essays which were very Good. Music is now introduced 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 in 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 of 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 Dixon going h school Melissa Little Industry at Home Ida Allison Honor and truth j. S.

Most of the scholars have had Little Opportunity of going to school. But under the skilful management of their teacher. Or. Asberry Neel they have made remarkable pro Gress. One thing we were particularly with was the order a and Drill of the school. No regiment of soldiers could obey the word of command More pro aptly than they did. Leg. 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 they were prompt in taking their places and As pro rapt 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 Hopewell school. A for iced of education. Incl iding the get High. Tusks and Twenty .1 family without the paper. Nothing presents a sadder com Centary upon the present unhealthy condition of our once oved and prosperous country than lie Large number of families both n the City and country but More especially in the Lauer that bub scribe to no paper of any kind. Hundreds and thousands of families Are thus growing up in utter ignorance of what is daily transpiring n the world around Sorant of the mighty events of to Day. But who can Tell the vast amount of injury that is being inflicted upon the rising who 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 doubtless do know better did they Only think of the injurious effects of their insane course. Let lha head of every family think of this and place in the hands of for whom he is responsible the Means of acquiring a thorough knowledge of the moving Panorama in which we enact our parts. A child. From the Nav Hollton Gazette we Are told a singular Story by a party acquainted with the facts with reference to a child of mrs. Lizzie Walker of Whitehall the second daughter of our Friend Alex. Lakin. During the period which mrs. W.
