So much for human great by Over Hia shoulder i saw to was gathering his Ness. The subject of this under sure indication. What phys cry and now mentally at the second september meeting of the Boston society of natural history or. Knic land read a paper relative to a so called Opatic Indian then on exhibition in that City whom he describes As Twenty two years of age and weighs 112 pounds. He concludes that she a member of some Indian Tribo inhabiting the Sierra Nevada which in for the most part through the mexican state Hof Sonora and Sinoloa Pai Allyl to the Gulf of California and that if she is an Opatic she must have come from the Cental part of Sonora. These opatts Are described by or. I Artlett As a quiet agricultural people living in Tiit Kly populated village.--, noted for their bravery against the apaches and altogether Superior to their neigh Bors the Yai Juis. Let this gel be Long to whatever tribe of a scattered race she May she is at All events a most curious rare and interesting specimen of humanity. A Mccland scouts the idea which so crib to be somewhat prevalent that she is the specimen of a race of human and Liaf brute and Ajes the Gill is modest playful in her Dis position Pleim d playthings like a child Aud at times rather Haid to manage from bet obstinacy and impulsive manner. She is quite intelligent perfectly every thing in to her can eur Iive u in glib also in flip Lai a Fox car for music and can sing tolerably he can also sew remarkably Well m 1 i vein fond of ornament and her is far less disgust ing than the rep emulations of her. The enor Mous growth of hair on the face and the prominence of the lips from diseased Gums give her a bullish appearance her hair is Long very thick Black and like that of the american Indian. Tie hair being of the same color Aud cd a actor grows on the fore head to the varying from one half to an Inch in length having been partially Cut off in the Middle of the forehead. The eyebrows arc very thick and shaggy and the lashes remarkably Long. The hair also grows along the sides and Alco of the nose upper lips Cheeks and about the ears which Are Large and with very Largo lobes the Chin is also Well supplied with a Black Fine Beard or Goatee two or three inches Long. The arms Aio for a woman though not Lor a Man on other p ills of the body there can be said to be no unusual growth of hair. There is a great mammary development. I have Riner shred her head care fully and it does not much from the aver age of these though the integument Over the Skull arc thick. She has therefore a though Small Braiu and is in Pablo of cultivation this head somewhat from that of the american the Eric is no characteristic Promin auce of the Xio flatness of the Occiput or forehead no want of symmetry in the two sides. The shape of the checks and the complexion is hardly Indian. The space Between the orbits is Large the eyes Are Vicy Black and Pic icing and there is no to be noticed As in the mongol. The nose is Flat quite unlike the aquiline of the Indian and yet not like that of the negro. Tho Mouth is very Large and the lips prominent and rather thick. The Gums Are in a curious condition being swelled All round so As to above and conceal Tho Teeth they Are not sensitive and so hard As to allow her to crack hard nuts with them the growth in Tho upper jaw is chiefly hypo trophy of the Bone and in the lower jaw Pune Pally a disease of the gum resembling vegetal ions. The molars bicuspid and canines arc Normal though Tho latter Are imbedded in the abnormal gum while the Back Teeth Are behind it. She is said never to have had incisors but that must to an error As she has the stump of one even now in Tho upper jaw and there is no reason to believe that she had not Tho Normal number. She has a decided Chin which would indicate her he if nothing eke did she has a will Forine Arm and a Small symmetrical hand she has also Small feet. She is a perfect woman in eve cry aspect performing All Tho functions of women regularly and naturally. She is entirely Humaidi and nothing but human being quite unlike Tho mixed african. It May be Here icing red thud Lor complexion soft skin hair and shape of the head face and nose remind one More of an Asiatic than an american Type. Her disposition too is mild and playful her manners gentle and communicative differing from the sullen taciturn and forbidding ways of the american Indian. It is Well known that some authorities main that the California indians Are of Asiatic origin who have Boon thrown in some Way in the american Shore from the Pacific islands. The notion also prevails among Many of the tribes bordering on the Gulf of califor Nia among the Ceris for that they arc of Asiatic origin or of Asiatic and Ameri can Indian mixed. Sho is no specimen of a degenerate race but an exceptional specimen such As occurs Nof in frequently in All races. Hairy women have lived before her without any suspicion of brute paternity. Tho con formation of her Mouth in so far As it is Abnor Mal is More Likely the result of Distaso than the character of a tribe. Tho causes of these peculiarities must to Rought for amongst those modify the products of Conception and impress various fancied or real animal or vege table resemblances upon Tho foetus in Uteri and which in some inexplicable Way seem to at rest or modify animal the girl was present at this meeting of the society Aud was consequently freely and carefully examined. She was found to be a woman in every respect with nothing remarkable about except the abnormal growth of hair and Tho morbid condition of the Gums and Areolar process. There is a goddess and her name is Fame. She had a Crown of glory to bestow and she assembled around her several applicants fur so grand an Honor. Each Lucas anxious to be the Lucky recipient but it was reserved for in in who could present the highest claims. The first who approached was a venerable Man of Long told years Bland in his manners and mild in his aspect. And what my Friend entitles you to asked her Ladyship. T Havo devoted almost Iny entire replied the aged speaker to study i be written and published various philosophical works my name Aud Fauio Bucu heralded through the old and new would and Man pays homage to my it in replied the goddess Yoi r claims will to duly considered and Olio next Appi cached was a Joung Man of quiet and genteel bearing and it was thus he presented his claims for the glorious Boon lady although not stricken in yearn and but just entering of the Active scenes of life As Short As has been my Span i be accomplished something. I am the author of the veil known poem on and the Ablest editors in the country have copied and Eulogi cd my and there stood in the presence of the god Dess one of military attire bearing the Honor Able scars of Many a Well fought spoke of the dangers he had braved and How he had preserved untarnished the glorious stars and stripes of Columbia s there Catucci another applicant for Tho prize Plain Blunt Man attired in Tho Gaib of a Sailor whose rough visage denoted that to had Cou tinted with Many a storm on the fathom deep. And what wonderful things have you per formed asked the goddess. Please your Ladyship from boyhood i be Boon a Ranger on the Ocean Boia i might say on the mighty deep the sea has been my Home j often Havo i seen the lightning level our spars and in Many a violent Gale i be heard the Thunder in its tremendous Roar i have res cued Many firn a watery grave and saved the infant As it Clung to the neck of its dying he who next appeared was of careworn brow meagre with his tattered were his clothes and chill penury had almost worn him to the Bones. It was thus he spoke to the goddess i am an poor and ill Clad author in my miserable Garret i live a miserable exis tence for i Havo no wherewith to satisfy the cravings of hunger. It is the Fate of Genius to contend with poverty for As a brother Oling ctr to a brother so Tho ills of life cling unto me. One half of my years have been devoted to literature Long has been my struggle for a local habitation and a but As yet i Havo found neither and lady if thou wouldst do an act of mercy bestow on me thy Crown of glory and Famo and Fortune will be and next there came one of Gay attire and Lufty bearing who urged his claims As follows a merchant lady extensively engaged in Commerce my warehouses Are crowded with merchandise and my ships float on every sea my credit is unbounded and my responsibility has never been doubted i have extended the hitherto restricted limits of Trade and Over stocked the countries of the Earth with the commodities of my 4 and lastly there came Forward one who stood abashed in the presence of the goddess he very Low and with great timidity lady my claims arc very trivial and not worthy to relate. I am the Friend of the poor the unprotected and the fatherless i be placed bread on tie empty tables of the fam Ishing Ana Ever have been the Champion of the weak against the Strong Over the faults and failings of erring humanity i Lave thrown the Broad Mantle of Charity and As i would that others should do unto me Havo i done unto them. I have Clad and comforted the sorrow stricken orphan and caused the widow s heart to rejoice i be plunged into the midst of pain and sick Ness and Lound up with the Sweet cords of pity the aching brow and have spread the Healing Balm of commiseration on the bleeding heart. Yet lady i claim no Merit for these things in Tje doing of which i but discharged my duty to my fellow creatures and my god and had i not been summoned to your pres1 ence i should not have appeared As a competitor for a prize to which i am not and he was about modestly withdrawing from her presence when the goddess arrested it is Progress sir to you alone belongs my Crown of glory for you Havo richly earned it. I bestow it upon the Good Man in preference to him who is or Cal great Genius or Groat talents if not Allied to greatness of heart Avail eth nothing. True Famo consists in deeds of Charity and brotherly love. The philosopher Tho poet the author the Mariner and the merchant May each and All make their Mark on the ago in which they live and illustrate the truthful of the Beautiful lines of my j rat no Long fellow that lives of Preal men ail remind us we can make our lives Sublime Ami Ftp Irlma grave behind footprints on Tho of Lime footprints that perhaps another Silling o or Jiff s solemn main a forlorn and shipwrecked brother seeing by ii take heart again. But it belongs to the no d to receive when a i Tlajy crowns of glory shall Wither and decay that Ever Blooming eternal awaits the pure in heart at the final the Kane Advent Tui a. Surnoc of the episodes encountered during Katie s search have interest. At one time it became necessary to Send a fatigue party with provisions to Apsit the main party under or. Kane in an attempted passage across Smith b sound. This party was under the com Mand of or. Brooks first officer of the expedition. He was accompanied by or. Wilson and other volunteers. During their travel they found the Iee completely impenetrable and a Snow Drift at last swept widely Over the floes and in the midst of a heavy Gale from the North the thermometer to their dismay gunk fifty seven degrees below Zerb. Human nature would not support the terrible cold. Four of the party including or. Wilson were prostrated with Frozen feet and with great difficulty three of their companions after encountering great suffering reached the ship and announced the condition of their comrades. Their Chance of being rescued seemed extremely Small. They were in the midst of a wilderness of Snow in capable of motion protected Only by a canvass tent and with no land Marks by which their position could be known. Even to drag these maimed Mon would have been under Ordinary circumstances a work of difficulty but to the Blunder party left at the ship it seemed to be impossible. I. Kane with the boldness and courage which justified the warm attachment Fult towards him by All us Der his command in less than one hour organized a rescuing party leaving on Board Only those who were necessary to receive the sick and started off in the Teeth of a terrific Gale steering by Compass to Rescue Tho sufferers. After Nineteen hours constant travel during which two of the party fainted and others required to be kept from sleep by Force they struck the Trail of the lost party and finally staggering under their Bur Dens one by Ono reached the tent which was almost hidden by the Snow. The scene As or. Kane entered the Tenor was affecting beyond description. The party burst out into tears. A blubber fire was immediately built Penni mean cooked and the party ate for the first time after leaving the vessel. Ice was also melted they having been to this time without drink. Worn out As they were but 4 hours were allowed for the halt. The maimed of Tho Frozen party were sewed up in Buffalo Robes placed on sledges and dragged on by their companions or. Kane walking in and Vance picking the track. Cold of the utmost severity again overtook them. Bonsall and Morton and even the Esqui Maux boy Ilance sunk upon the Snow with sleep. It was Only by Force that they were aroused and made to proceed As Tho cold seemed to have destroyed All Conception of danger. A Large Bear met on their Way was fortunately seared off by or. Kane by the simple waving of his hand. They reached the ship after a walk of sixty two hours dragging their companions behind them insensible. Or. Hayes the intelligent sir Goon of the ship from whom we obtained the particulars of this fearful adventure received the returning party. Two of the number died of their injuries and two othes underwent amputation who Are now restored to perfect health. Tie condition of those who dragged the sick was most lamentable. Their memory for a time was entirely gone and the Ehrp in the midst of muttering delirium resembled a Hospital. The surgeon and one remaining attendant was in Cole Chargo of the ship. In this state of Semi madness the sick for two or three Days but afterwards Fiey Oil tirely recovered Aud the part finder or. Kan started three weeks afterwards and their labors in the Field. Intrepidity like this has never been passed. It is spoken of with emotion Evcic. Now by the stoutest hearts in the y. Jour of com. Paying fort Suppert a poor Indian came one night to an inn Litchfield in Tho Early Days of new England and for a morsel of food and afe irions lodging. I no he Hunt a Day and no game in the the not liking his appear Neey drove him off and As he was Gering looking very sad for ther was no other House for Many a mile a Man who was sitting on a Bench before the door told the woman to Supply the wants of the red Man and he would pay her. As soon As his supper was finished the Indian thanked his Benefactor and said he would one Day repay him a great Many years after the settler taken prisoner by a hostile tribe and Carrico off to Canada. His life was spared but he kept in slavery until one Day an Indian to him and giving him a Musket bade Tho i captive follow him. The Indian never told him where they were going or what waa Lia object but Day after Day the captive followed the strange guide through the thick forests until one afternoon they came suddenly on the cultivated lands of the White Man. Do you know that place i said the Indian pointing to a group of houses. A yes it is and before the poor captive could recover from his Surprise and Joy the Indian exclaimed and i Anix that starving Indian you Onee took pity on and now that i have paid you for that supper you can go Homo to miss no Opportunity of doing a kind action it will be repaid. A Beautiful extract. We clip the following Beautiful and truthful extract from an Exchange the name of Whick has escaped our memory. Let it be considered Well the past is secure. It is unalterable. The Seal of eternity is upon it. The Wisdom which it displayed cannot be obscured neither can they be debased by human Folly or human infirmity. The future is that which May Wel awaken the most Earnest solicitude both for the virtue and permanence of our Republic. The Fate of other republics their Rise their Progress their decline and their fall Are writ ten but too legibly on Tho pages of history if indeed they were not continually before us in Tho startling fragments of their ruins. They have Paris lid and perished their own hands. Prosperity enervated to icon corruption debased them and a venal populace consume Ted their destruction. They have sometimes been cheated out of their liberties by Servile sometimes betrayed into a sur Lender of them by false patriots. They hair disregarded the warning voice of to Weir Best statesman and have persecuted and driven from their lest for Icouls. They Hurve reverenced Power More in its High abuses and summary movements than in its Calm and Stith tonal Energy. They have surrendered to faction what belonged to the country. Patron age and party the Triumph of a Leader and the discontents of a Day have outweighed All solid principles and institutions of government. Such Are the melancholy lessons of the past history of the republics Down to our own let the history Oflahe grecian and italian states warn us of our danger. Let the Amer ican youth never forget that they possess a Noble inheritance bought by the toils and sufferings and blood of their ancestors and Pablo if wisely improved and faithfully guarded of transmitting to their latest posterity All the substantial blessings of life tha peaceful enjoyment of Liberty property Reli Gion and Independence. The Structure has been erected by architects of consummate skill and Fidelity its arrangements Are full of we Dom and order its foundations solid and its defences Are impregnable from without. It has been reared for immortality if the work of Man May justly aspire to such a title. It May nevertheless perish in an hour by the Folly or corruption or negligence of its Only keepers the people.
