I or in the while an4 we take the following extracts from a letter of e. Merrian on the subject of earthquakes published in the National Intelli Geicer during the great Earth Jake at chant Bun Siam May 13, 1848, which was Felt at the same moment in Valparaiso South and throughout the province Europe resembling inn in hair came out of the Earth in of Titi Eye during the the Fields in Tho highways on the Oft february of same Yew during an earthquake at Mahone 3ay? Nova grubs like cabbage grabs fell Snow Clouds and great flocks of Robins followed the Cloud and fed upon the grubs. These Birds had never before been seen Irr that cold climate 1 in Winter. of the first Day of it was or Pisely i one bundled years since the great earthquake at Lisbon which. Destroyed sixty. Thousand people in six that earthquake was Felt on All the then discovered continents the Globe. The great earthquake at Caracas the Majroh 1812, destroyed ten thou Sand persons in two Loi autes. These earthquakes happened during religious Festi Vals As have -also1 several other great Earth quakes of which. A Thaye records. With regard to the heat of the Interior of the Earth i have some facts that have a. Bear ing. The multitude of Tolean pcs found in various parts of the except within the Interior of the continent of from Ever burning fires but there Are places beneath Tho Earth s crust where heat is not Only a gent but its opposite . In a paper addressed to to in e. W. Newton esq., of Kanawha Virginia he says la answer to the inquiries contained in offer letter which has been placed Iii our hands by the gentleman to whom it was addressed we has been no misrepresentation in the newspapers in relation to the depth of the Salt Wells. Several of them Are fr5m 1200 to 1610 feet. Or. A Reynolds As sures us that his Well is sixteen Hundred and fifty feet deep. There is abundant evidence that there increase of temperature in the depth reached in any of t a Walls first. The water that is driven or forced from All Tho Wells is very cold. At one of Tho depth of 1500 feet and is tubed 700, feet so As to exclude All the water fresh or Salt to that it is quite certain that All the water comes from of 1500 feet for at that depth Tho Stream of Salt water was water is also cold As the very coldest Spring water such As gushes out from the base of our mountains. Second the workmen at the. Furnaces in warm weather Are in the habit of filling jugs with River water them in the cisterns of Salt water As it is thrown up. The water in the jugs soon becomes not quite so cold As ice. Water but As cold As the coldest Spring water. Third. The Gas which conies from the Low est Depths of the Wells with the water if not according to the supposition expressed in your letter from beneath the water is As cold is a Northern blast in Winter. To be exposed to a moderate Stream of this Gas in tubing the Wells is extremely disagreeable workmen. In the Bot est Days in it chills them through in a Short time. A these facts every body hero considers conclusive that the tem pc Raturi does not increase in proportion to the depth Bolow the surface of the Earth. There was a fear expressed when the great reservoirs of Gas wore first reached at Kanawha that it might be ignited by lighting and an explosion be the result hence Tho remark referred to in my letter that the Gas came from nature has protected the Gas from Firo resulting from meteors of the Clouds by placing it under water. On Green River Kentucky however passengers in steam boats became alarmed during Low stages of water when the boat disturbs the sediment on Tho Rook Bottom of the River during which car Butet feed Hydrogen escapes in such abundance m to Soylu the As to Yenito from the fires in the furnaces under the boilers if each doors arc left open at Kanawha the Gas is conducted under Salt Burnt As fuel in Salt toiling the cinders i have specimens of in my pocket having All the appearance of roots and fibres of vegetables.

If you go to South there you have to wander Over great i Arrea Plains the water is warm arid and you meet the fever sad Guei Ito the North the Winters Are Long and bitter within grass a you cannot horses there but must travel with dogs. What is a country without horses on the Columbia they Are poor and dirty paddle about in canoes and eat fish. Their Teeth Are worn out they Are always taking fish Bones out of their Mouths. Fish is poof food. To the East they dwell in Vilkes they live Well but they Drift j the Muddy Waters of the a Crow s dog would not drink such water. About the Fork s of the Missouri is a Fine country Good water plenty of Buffalo. In summer it is almost As Good As. This country but in Winter it is cold the grass is gone and there in no Salt Weed for horses. The Crow country is exactly in the right Pitico. It has Sno try mountains and sunny Plains All kinds oif climates and Good things for every season. Few Hon tha summer heat scorches the Prairies you can dra of up under the mountains Wheirda the air is Sweet and Cool the frass Frosh ant the Bright Stream comes tumbling out of talc Snow Banks.

A in autumn Shevi your horses Are fat and Strong from the main stain pastures you can go Down into the Mountain Plains and Hunt Buffalo or trap heavier on the streams. And when the Winter comes on you can take shelter in the Woody Bottoms along the Rivers there you will find meat for yourselves and. Cotton Wood bark of for your horses or you May Winter in the wind River Valley where there is Salt word in abundance. The Crow country is exactly in the right place. Everything Good is to be found there. There is no country like the Crow there Are no people in the world entirely destitute of Honor even when their moral perceptions Are singularly obtuse. Ideas of Honor May but always exist in some form. The following passages illustrative of Honor As distinct from if Nesty among the indians is also taken from Rocky mountains a White Hunter by.

And other More sensitive parts of the body Are squeezed to the last Point of endurance often to faint ing and even to permanent disablement. In Many places the Kittee has been superseded by the More simple plan of violently suppressing the hands under a Flat Board on which a pressure is Laid sometimes even by the.
