of her fathers. In the flashes of the northern lights, men believed they saw the dance of the dead. But the south-west is the Tanner, 322. great subject of traditions. There is the court of the Great God; there is the paradise where beans and maize grow spontaneously; there are the shades of R. Williams, 21. the forefathers of the red men. This form of faith in immortality had also its crimes. It is related that the chief within whose Portuguese Relation c. XXX. Relation territory De Soto died, selected two young and wellproportioned Indians to be put to death, saying the usage of the country was, when any lord died, to kill Indians to wait on him and serve him by the way. Traces of an analogous superstition may be found among Algonquin tribes, and among the Sioux; the Tales of the Northwest, 282.

In 1696, Don Andres de Arriola had built upon its margin a fort, a church, and a few houses, in a place without commerce or agriculture, or productive labor of any kind. By the capture of the fort, which, after five hours resistance, surrendered, the French hoped to extend their power along 1719. May 14. the Gulf of Mexico from the Rio del Norte to the Atlantic.

hment of volunteers surrounded the town of Potosi, on the Iron Mountain Railroad, on Tuesday night, in consequence of Unionists being driven away from there, and one hundred and fifty citizens made prisoners. The Unionists were liberated, and the Secessionists were then released on their parole. Nine of the leaders were lodged in the arsenal as prisoners of war. Four hundred pigs of lead were seized at the lead factory while returning. A Secession company of cavalry was dispersed at De Soto, and thirty horses seized. The volunteers also raised an American flag on the pole erected for the Secession flag. Two prominent Secessionists there and at Victoria were captured. Thirteen Union families have arrived at St. Louis, having been driven from their homes in various towns on the Pacific railroad. Gen. Price has issued orders instructing the Brigadier-Generals to immediately organize the militia in their respective districts, and hold them in readiness for active servi
he invading column consisted of but a regiment or so of British regulars, supported by many regiments of Tories. But for the domestic aid which thus rallied to the British standard, history would never have had to record the important events of the Southern Revolutionary campaigns. Despite of these campaigns, the proposition remains true that the South has never been the theatre of a successful invasion. The mere climate and distances traversed destroyed utterly the magnificent column of De Soto. It is a remarkable fact that the only wars against the Indians which cost the whites regular and protracted campaigns were those in the South. How many years of fighting, how many thousands of lives and millions of dollars did the Seminole war cost the United States? It required all the genius of Jackson and all the skill and hardihood of his brave Tennessee and Kentucky riflemen, exerted for some years, to put down the Indians of Georgia and Alabama.

ve articles in prose and verse. It has given us pleasure to bear tribute to the able and spirited manner in which Dr. Bagby conducts this periodical. Aside from the editors contributions, there are thirteen articles, historical, scientific, humorous and pathetic. "Lady Mary Wortley Montague," "Popular Lectures on the Various Forces of Matter," "Thackeray versus Dickens," are the leading prose compositions; and "Tom Johnson's Country Courting; " "The Northman's Cause;" "Death and Burial of De Soto;" "De Profundis;" "Music on the Gulf Shore," and "Lines to Mary," make up a sufficiently varied poetical entertainment. The leading editorial article is a discussion of Disunion, in which the editor advocates immediate secession, and strongly commends the position of South Carolina. The following opening sentence is the key-note of the whole article: "The days of the greatest and happiest Republic the world ever saw are numbered; the fiat has gone forth, and the inexorable fates

His command embraces the Indiana, Illinois, Iowa and Missouri Regiments. Three companies of the 7th Regiment, Col. Stevenson, left for De Soto last night to support the Home Guards of that section against the attacks of the Secessionists, who have artillery, and gather their clans by a discharge of cannon.

Western Dispatches. A special dispatch to the Mississippian, dated Panota, Miss., 12th inst., states that a report had just reached that place that Col. Roddy had crossed to the west side of the Tennessee river and captured the town of Hamburg, above Savannah, securing a large amount of bacon and other stores. Hamburg and Savannah are in Hardin county, Tenn. --The dispatch continues: Capt James Mathews, of De Soto, has brought intelligence, which may be relied on, that Gen. Marmaduke had fired on two downward transports a few miles above Helena, sinking one and capturing the other. A force of two regiments was sent up against him from Helena, which he completely routed, driving what of them was left howling back to their lines. Gen. Price is cutting out a road through the bottom for his artillery, &c., to Old Town, a point eighteen miles below Helena. A dispatch from Jackson to the Atlanta Appeal gives some extracts from late Northern papers: Burnside's corp
tions preserved are the helmet, the vizor and gorget, and coverings for the arms. We understand that the rest of the armor was found, but has been inadvertently lost or destroyed. This armor is of the most solid and substantial character, that for the head alone weighing fifteen or twenty pounds, and being impenetrable to musket or rifle balls. It is probable that the armor belonged to one of the expeditions of Pamphillo de Narvaez, which was lost in the country, or to one of the army of De Soto, and is about three hundred and fifty years old — perhaps much older. There is a romantic interest attached to these relies of the early conquerors of the New World. These iron trappings probably encased the form of one who sought gold and glory, and found a grave in the vast wilderness of America or perhaps some old knight who invested the remainder of a sad and unhappy life in the search for the "Fountain of Youth," but whom death surprised cry his limbs had been bathed in its rejuvenat

On the same evening the town of Potosi was captured by the Confederates. The headquarters of General A. J. Smith have been established at De Soto, where reinforcements were being sent to him. About eighteen thousand Missouri militia are reported to be under arms, together with a number of independent companies. All, or nearly all, of these, however, will most proemy. The towns of Granton, Arcadia, Mineral Paint and Potosi suffered great injury. The condition of affairs below De Soto are unknown. Later. The mail agent of the Southwest Branch railroad arrived to-night. He reports that General ut both sides of that point, severing communication with both St. Louis and Rolla. Escaped prisoners who arrived at De Soto to-day report that Pilot Knob is still held by the rebels, but their numbers and probable movements are not known.
