From the Portsmouth journal. Oppression of the indians. It is a crying offence of our country that the rights and the privileges of the aborigines of America have not been respect Ieti nor that Protection afforded them which their feeble and depressed state asks from the hand of common Benevolence. The might of the White Man has been in too Many instances the basis of his rights and the son of the Forest has been driven from the Home of his sires at the March of what is called civilization to seek a Refuge in Wilder forests or fight for a new Home on lands by other tribes possessed. The treaties of the Whites have been no More respected by them and in some important instances much less than by the original proprietors of the soil and the spirit of the age has been to Endeavor in the most humane manner to exterminate the race and give the White Man uninterrupted Range from where the rising Sun greets the Atlantic Shore to where his falling beams rests upon the Pacific coast. We have Long been of this opinion and believe that the same sentiment exists very extensively in our Community. We Are led to advert to it at Litis time by listening to the closing lecture at the lyceum on tuesday was the subject chosen and ably discussed by the Hon. Ichabod Bartlett. Under this distinguished chieftain he advocated the cause of the indians with such ability and Force of argument sustained by the facts in the Case that we Are fully convinced not one of the five Hundred jury present had they been Emp annexed on the occasion would have brought in a verdict in favor of our country. The lecture was the Best history of our relations with the indians and of the present War that we have Ever met with and should be much gratified to be Able to give it in full to the Public although types Are incapable of conveying that emotion to the bosom which the eloquence of the orator imparted. The following lines placed in the Mouth of oses la from the pen of Lieut. Patten convey in great spirit and Fidelity a delineation of the Indian s hate of the White Man arising from the oppression the Semins Les have undergone. The thrill it produced by its recitation on the above occasion will not soon be forgotten. Blaze with your serried columns i will not Bend the knee the shackle Neer again shall bind the Arm which now is free i be mail d it with the Thunder when the tempest mutter d Low. And where it Falls be Well May dread the lightning of its blow. I be scared be in the City i be scalped be on the Plain a go count your chosen where the fell beneath my Leaden rain i scorn your proffer d treaty the Pale face i defy revenge is stamped upon my Spear and my Battle cry. Some strike for Hope of Booty some to defend their ally 1 Battle for the Joy i have to see the White Man fall i love among the wound a in to hear his dying moan Olimi while chanting at his Side. The music of his groan. Yeve Trail d me through the Forest Yeve track d me o or the Stream. And struggling la rough the everglade your bristling bayonets gleam a but i stand As should the Warrior. With his Rifle and his Spear the Scalp of vengeance still is red. And warns yes Quot Cowie not think be to find my Homestead i gave it to the fire my Tawny household do be seek i am a childless sire but should be crave life s nourishment. Enough i have and Good j Hoe on hate tis All my bread yet Light is not my food. I loathe be with my bosom i scorn be with mine Eye a and i la taunt be with my latest breath. And fight be till i Neer will ask be Quarter and i Neer will be your slave but i la swim the sea of Slaughter. Till i sink beneath its wave. It will be remembered that Many of the seminoles killed their children they being considered an encumbrance in the War. Antiquities of the West. Correspondence of the new Fork Star. Elephant Mound Chis Shetraw River 1836. Since the Date of my last at Quot Sundown Quot took an escort of indians leaving my two companions to speculate upon the rising value of their City lots and the Beauty of the Yan Toana squaws. We entered on a Trail which led us a Beetle beyond Quot Sundown Quot and disclosed to our views Ono. Of the finest countries the Eye Ever beheld. The second a we arrived on the Banks of a Small River called Shis Shetraw by the indians. Here we encamped in the midst of several of those remarkable antiquities of this continent which have been a perfect Puzzle to All the antiquarians of modern times. I have known a single antique in Rome to be rationally accounted for in at least fifty different ways and to be furnished by every new author or traveller with a new and Independent history As plausible As that of the Angel carrying the House of the Virgin Mary to Loretto but Here i am surrounded by the types of other times texts which no one can expound. These Tumuli the creation of which is wrapped in absolute mystery either of history or tradition Are like so Many raised letters to the Blind before they Are taught to read them by a sense of feeling. Several of those near where we have pitched our wigwam Are from nine to sixty feet High and All of a pyramidal form. They Are in two instances grouped m such a manner As to leave no doubt but that their relative position was designed and that one of the leading objects was defence and perhaps for sepulchral purposes also. But of their origin or use the Indian is As ignorant As the writer. The tumulus formations Here Are smaller at the base for their height than those near st. Louis and other sections of the West which i have visited. The most remarkable things however and that which was the chief object of our excursion was to see several embankments referred to in my previous letter and which had been described to me by an intelligent Indian As bearing an exact resemblance to a drawing of an elephant which i made on paper. Harry laughed at me most i moderately As i started on this excursion saying that my travelling on the sources of the Missouri in search of elephants was perfectly rational while his expedition to discover the greatest town site in the far West would be set Down As sheer madness. We encamped the first night on our arrival in an Oak opening and spent the whole of the two following Days Riding within a circuit often or fifteen Miles when just before dark the shrill voice of a Young Squaw announced that she had found the object of our search and for the discovery of which i had offered a Reward of a Silver Crescent an ornament for the nose. It proved to be a Mound about 17 feet High ninety four Long and the body thirty eight feet Broad but including the legs the animal As his figure Lay extended before us measured fifty two feet in height and in every respect bore the exact shape and outlines of the elephant the trunk however being extended perfectly straight. Such was the perfection of every part of the body which is now covered with turf the growth of Ages and some Small Hickory Trees that it left no other impression upon my mind than that which had been forced upon the indians who believe it to have been copied after some animal that has Long since deserted their Hunting grounds and which my informant instantly recognized in the drawing of the elephant. This must have been executed by a people possessing great Powers of imitation. And As to its being an artificial work there can be but one opinion upon that subject. I should As soon have doubts of the colossal line Cut in the Mountain Rock of Switzerland by order of the Swiss government As a Monument to the Swiss guard slain during the French revolution. We were compelled to leave the examination of this interesting object by the sudden darkness which seemed to fall like a curtain before our eyes. It is one of the peculiarities of the Prairie countries of the far West that there is no Twilight. When the Sun Falls below the horizon Here the transition is instantaneous both at Sunset and Sunrise Between the darkness of night and the sunbeams of Day. We soon found the Trail which led us to our wigwam a distance of about two Miles from the scene of my antiquarian investigation. The following morning i started with the whole body of escort with the intention of a More accurate View and measurement and also a drawing of the More intricate parts of its formation particularly at the Junction of the legs with the body which was so perfect after nature As to remove every doubt in the minds of the most incredulous As to its exact similitude to the great Monarch of the East but the eagerness of the indians to show me some other objects of curiosity expecting Reward corresponding with their Zeal induced one of the leaders to draw us off in another direction and after a travel of about four Miles we entered a Grove of stately Oaks and Here was a land Tortoise to be sure Afie burp. Rico . La of had and neck 12 feet and the Iver age of the body about 13 feet High in the most perfect state of preservation with the exception of the legs which seemed to. Have been washed away on one Side of the animal but were this Tinct and perfect on the other though they projected but a Short distance from the body. While examining and taking a rude sketch of this object from which i intend to have a Wood Cut made on my return we were overtaken by a violent storm and obliged to return to our Encampment. The storm continued with great violence for two Days and such was the crowd and confined atmosphere in our wigwam with nine indians and Oliree squaws that i was in a measure compelled to Buffet the storm and travel Back to Harry s Beautiful Encampment on the Banks of the Warre Conne without completing my Survey of the elephant. The observations i made Lowe ver were sufficient for my own gratification still a More accurate account than i have Given and further investigations in the immediate neighbourhood and perhaps excavating a part of the figures themselves might have led to further discoveries and been no doubt More Gratifying to the Public generally. But i had already remained two Days in a Smoky wigwam on their account until i should have passed for fair Bacon made by steam process. The season of Flowers is far spent and i must get As far East As old fort Armstrong on Rock Island and pitch my tent for the Winter. The accommodations at Harry s head quarters Quot Sundown Quot consist of a Good bark wigwam made like a sugar loaf after the form of the Otta was and the luxury of one to ourselves a plenty of games the killing of which has been our daily pastime. Several of the most celebrated am Iii can and foreign travellers have inflicted Large books upon the Public full of Buffalo Ami Stag Hunts the subject is worn out and i have dropped it entirely though i have killed More Buffalo and bears since i crossed the upper Mississippi than All the fancy travellers the last five years according to their own records. But i came Here to see something which has escaped the observation of others something wild like the Yan Toana horse ight. And Here let me remark with reference to that that though like other travellers i May have allowed my imagination in some instances to embellish a scene under the excitement of the moment yet in that instance the description in my last of the encounter Between the two studs fell altogether Short of the reality and the Back ground of the picture filled by the indians was Given with entire injustice to the facts. We came Here to live among the indians to enter their Strong holds fearlessly not to write a whole Book about being frightened by the Bare name of Pawnee. I had quite a levee on the Day of my return. All the chiefs and nearly every Copper faced Belle in the City did me the homage of a visit. The traveller who writes letters from a foreign country to his own and does not place the Lovely women of his native land above All others sacrifices the Good opinion of his own country As to his taste besides insuring to himself a cold reception by the ladies on his return. To meet the latter would actually break my hear hence you May have seen i have hardly Given an opinion of the females of this new world though perhaps i might be permitted to speak of some few pairs of sparkling eyes and the Raven locks of the Fin Toana squaws or some three or four of the half Breeds with us who i assure you would form Bright links in a Constellation of Eastern Beau Tiesi i believe i am entitled to make these re Marks on account of my Friend Harry whose subjects they Are but i forbear to enter upon a Thene which May Lead me into difficulties. I least of to Morrow a i leave the setting for the rising Sun i leave Harry to Complete his plans to sell his lots to accomplish his great designs All of which he expects to do in a Short time and join me at Rock Island. He says it used to take six Days to make a world but hat was in the Olden times when people lived b great Ages and could afford to waste their time but since the introduction of railroads and Stean Power things have undergone a change and hat his City will Rise by Force of the enchantment and beauties of the far West. This letter will be Cru Rod by a half by eed runner for the fur company to it. Louis z Hope it will arrive safely to your hands. I leave under an e Cort of Only Fohy in o indians and we have fears of the Pawnee either yours. The remedy a Domestic m. M. Noah. After All is said on the subject of the times of Reform and the necessity of Economy in All our outlays the True Way is to set to work forthwith carry Reform into practical execution and see How it works. Example is a great guide and what one will do the other will i minute. Fashionable extravagance would be at once surrendered when it is fashionable to be economical. A very Large importing House was prostrated by the pending storm and first tried the Experiment of Extension but finally gave up and suspended payment. About a fortnight or three weeks after that event had taken place i called at their magnificent mansion in a place and found the House closed and a Bill on it for Sale or to let. I stood musing for a few minutes calling to mind the splendor of the last parly i had been at in that very House in january last the Parlours with their magnificent ottomans damask chairs Rich persian carpets candelabras and costly mirrors the Gay and fluttering crowd of fashionable the Superb supper and massive plate and flashing lights and Jocund faces and above All the Graceful and delighted mistress of the All was dreary and desolate the dast had already collected on the venetian blinds and the plated Bell handle looked dark and Dingy. An air of desertion and decay lowered on the mansion the airy dream of the occupants had vanished. I determined however to see my friends fort Wio forgets a Friend in the hour of adversity is not fit to live in this world and on pursuing my enquiry. I traced them to a Small Street East of the bowery and living in a neat two Story House. I rang the Bell and was usher into the parlor by a Little girl with a clean Check apron. I looked round the rooms. What a contrast a Plain but new ingrain carpet neat Lush Bottom chairs a sofa two Small looking glasses in the piers under Whit a was a Plain mahogany table and Olalea candlesticks on the mantel piece. Every tiling was eat and in the opposite extreme of 8pleu<\v.v of the Laily of tits Vinita met me with a cheerful smile and a cordial shake of the hand. The last time i had seen her she was alighting from her Carriage splendidly dressed at stewarts in Broadway she now had on a neat Calico dress a silk apron and a Plain Cap and looked exceedingly interesting. Quot Why How you stare Quot said she Quot am 1 not an altered woman Quot Quot yes but altered for the better. How Well you do look Quot Quot do i Why yes i think i do. I take great exercise Bustle about the House rub furniture you once advised me to do look after the Kitchen am constantly employed indeed in must be so for we cannot keep an army of servants As we fori orly did Quot Quot it will All work Well be sure of it the storm will soon blow Over at least with you because you show yourself to be a skilful Pilot you take in sail in time and will soon have your slip Moor Vej in smooth water Quot Quot Well Yon do Comfort me exceedingly for i have seen but few of my gala friends of late. Here comes my husband a now you must sit Down and take a cheerful family dinner with a very White but not very Fine table cloth was spread uncut tumblers Blue plates Buck handle knives and Forks Japan bread Basket &.c., and the Little girl with a Check apron waited on us. A beef Steak and a hol potatoes a couple of slices of Fried halibut an Apple dump Ling Good White bread and a Tumbler of Beer constituted our dinner. Don t look at me Quot said the hostess Quot for really i eat like a Plowmann of late i have had a most unfashionable appetite but then i Rise with the Sun and the Day passes so quickly that night sets in before i have done one half of my work no of Don t smile when i say work for although you know i have not been used to it yet really 1 do work and very do Yow not miss your horses and Carriage your rides up and Down Broadways your visits to Stewart Boyle and Veneble Quot Quot no not in the least i do miss my purse occasionally to be Frank with you but then i accommodate my Means to my wants and All is smooth. We cannot eat Gold you know it Only can perform certain offices which i do not want. I have enough of a Rich wardrobe to last me for years. Rather too Many pocket handkerchiefs that Cost me $30 a piece and its to the Carriage and horses if they brought their gratification they we e also a source of trouble vexation and expense and i am better without them. Thus i derive Consolation from misfortune and am Content and most Happy. All this is the result of practical Good sense of a determined mind which soars above misfortune of a Happy contented nature. What a treasure such a wife is to a Man in these times and who instead of increasing his gloom and despondency by frowns upbraiding and fret ulness meets him with the smile of Hope and cheerfulness Points out the Road to Reform and leads him towards it by her own Good and successful example keeps up his Energy and inspires him with new life animates him to future exertions a smooths the Pillow of disappointment and Perate habits.

For the Rale pure we a the Best stuff to speculate on he Ever knew on. Cheers him with Tulve Assurance of better times. The question is frequently asked Why Are our Young men not As robust and healthy now As Young men were half a Century ago and what is the reason that so Many die Young and few live to old age or even to Middle life we will Endeavor to answer these questions agreeable to our Oivin observations. In the first place Young men half a Century a go were brought up and educated to More industrious economical and Tom governors and compelled to be obedient to their parents and masters. They were made to retire to bed Early and to Rise Early and to exercise tiie selves at some kind of manual labor previous to their attending to their studies if they were students they were obliged to earn their breakfast at some kind of work before they ate it. Their food then was much coarser and plainer and therefore More healthy. If this same kid of conduct and living were pursued now towards our boys and Young men they would be As healthy and robust now As their predecessors were and live to As great an age and so would our Young women. But manners customs and living have All changed. Now our children Are masters they turn night into Day and Day into night. They sit up until Midnight and All the Beautiful atmosphere in the morning has passed away before they Are up it is really so and instead of being up at some useful labor and exercise they Are permitted to loiter and Idle away their precious time and to it it and i intr Favio hard earnings of others no wonder that there Are fifty paupers now Whert there was one then. Many of the Young men of the present Day who find an Early grave Are guilty of suicide. They actually kill themselves by intemperance in meats and dissipation. They live 5 years in one i. E. They eat and drink As much in one year As would serve a healthy and temperate liver five not to enlarge upon the alarming dissipation of our Young people which sweeps millions away to an Early grave every year. If there should not be a speedy reformation in the conduct of Young people a Man of fifty or sixty should there be such a one will be looked upon in a few years with admiration and . S. Gazette. On jesting a harmless mirth is the Best cordial against the consumption of the spirits wherefore jesting is not unlawful if it Tresp Asseth not in Quantity Quality or season. It is Good to Maka a jest hut not to make a Trade of Earl of Leicester knowing that Queen Elizabeth was much delighted to see a gentleman dance Well brought the master of a dancing school to dance before her Quot it is Quot said the Queen Quot his profession i will not see she liked it not where it was a master Quality but where it attended on other perfections. A the same we by of jesting. Jest not with the two edged sword of god s the whole Art is Learned at the first admission and profane jests will come without calling. If without thy intention and against thy will by Chance Medly thou whitest scripture in Ordinary discourse yet Fly to the City of Refuge and Pray god to forgive thee. Thant on jests make fools laugh and Inise men we Are civilized englishmen let us not be naked Savages in our talk such Rotten speeches Are worst in withered age. not thy jests like Mummy be made of dead men s not any that Are departed for to wrong their memories is to Rob their ghosts of their winding sheets. Scoff not at the natural defects of any which it ii e not in their Power to Lis cruel to beat u cripple with i crutches neither flaunt any for his profession if honest though poor and painful mock not a Cobler for his Black thumbs. He that relates another Man s wicked jests with Delight adopts it As his them there re from their Poison. If the profane Ness May be severed from the wit it is like a Lamprey take out the sting in the Back it May make Good meat. But if the Staple conceit consists in f. Of fineness then it is a Viper All Poison and meddle not with it. He that will lose his Friend for a jest deserves to die a beggar by the some think their conceits like Mustard not Good except they bite. We read that All those who were born in England in the year after the beginning of the great mortality 1319, wanted the tar four Cheek Teeth. Such let thy jest be that they May not grind the credit of thy Friend and make not jests so Long till thou becomes from Fuller. A ludicrous mistake occurred at a funeral some Days ago at Hamburg which notwithstanding the seriousness of the occasion a produced considerable laughter. On the same Day and almost at the same moment two coffins wee borne into the Church Yard precisely resembling each other. One contained the Veitia insofar Beautiful girl the other the wreck of an old Veteran Soldier who had served Many campaigns under Napoleon. The coffins were placed upon the same Bier and there was no distinguishing the one from the Soldier was to have been buried with All the honors of War but it happened to be the coffin of the girl which the assistants removed and her Corpse was consigned to its place amid military salvos and martial music. The Vieux moustache on the other hand was followed to the grave by the sighs and moans of a crowd of Young people and his coffin adorned with Virgin Flowers. The Young woman had been much regretted and among the cortege was a Stripling who showed by the greatness of his grief that his heart was affected when upon the Edge of the Tomb this Young Man broke through All restraint and insisted upon opening the Coflin to have a last look at the remains of her whom he loved but his Surprise and disappointment May be imagined when his eyes fell upon the grisly Beard of the War worn Veteran a Spiru de House. We learn from the Hermania Gazelle that on the 7th inst. A noted horse jockey attended a Sale of horses at a farm in the Vicinity and purchased a handsome animal fir forty five Dol Hirs. On Exi Imin Alion the beast was discovered to be Well stricken in years and upon trial proved Loath to proceed faster than a walk. Thesa circumstances the purchaser represented to the Farmer but Quot a bargain s a bargain Quot was All the satisfaction obtained. The horse was saddled and by that virtue which we Are told overcomes All things an-1 that ancient argument the Scourge a distance of eight Miles was accomplished and the rider and Riden were standing in front of a Small tavern half a mile from the Village of him Merston. Here a Bright and sudden idea struck the rider and Fie struck the horse. A pint of Whin key was procured and poured Down the animal b thro it the owner remounted and pursued his Way. By the time both reached Hammer town the beast began to Feal the effects of the Critter he had swallowed and performed several manoeuvres clearly demonstrating the fact that As wine Gladden the heart of Man whiskey Gladden the Henrt of a horse. The animal nth a was in Pon a Beautiful and Lively a Good joke. Quot if music be the food of love play on. It was a Beautiful Star Light re ight in the month of of May when a romantic voting lady sat at her chamber window counting the stars and More Likely digesting the last novel she had swallowed with All the rapacity of a girl of eighteen who has nothing to do but believe and read All author says. The watchman had just Liaw led out Quot past 12 o clock Quot and the stillness of the night was Only interrupted now and then by the Homo wending spark who ready a nixed with offering of the Rudy god described doubtful curve along the pavement. She had solved All the rays teries of the spangled heavens revelled in its Blue depth and traced the pathways of comets when the sound of a guitar fell upon her ear three or four harmonious chords aroused her from her reverie and found corresponding echoes in her heart the sounds came from beneath her window and the easy precluding proclaimed a master hand. The guitar is a romantic Nitani ment and with a Good voice better calculated than any other.
