Si'tt il Mlssaoe. Tlie President of
the Liicd States sent to Congress, a spe
nd message, accompanied by a letter from
the Secretary of War, in regard to exten
sive threatened hoslililies among the es
;ern Indian tribes. The prompt. action of
Cor gress is invoked to make provision for
arres' ing the threatened difficulties. The
President says :
'The proposed temporary provision to
meet a special dt inrind, far from obviating,
iu my judgment, only serv es to illustrate
the urgent necessity of an increase of the
regular nriny, at least the extent recom
mended in my lute annual message. Un
less by the plan proposed, or some equal
ly effective, a force can be early brought
into the field adequate to the suppression
of existing l ostilities, tho cuinbinaton of
predatory bunds will bu extended, and
the difficulty of restoring order and secu
rity greatly magnified. On the other
hand, without a permanet military force of
sufficient strength to control the unfriend
ly Indians, it may be expected that the boss
tilities will ooti be renewed, and that
years of border warfare will aflliet the
country, .etarding the progress of se'tlc.

barbarities, and consuming millions of the

Many of these noble birds still nest in

The Sand Hill Crone is omniverotis,
devouring pretty much anything eaten by
birds. The nest is n simple pile of rush
es, or grass, flat on the top, built in some
ueep siougn or pond, lneeggs iwo in
number are shaped much like those of
the common turkey, of a light amber col
or, und splashed with brown. The nest
is usually surrounded by deep water, but
the joung birds swim readily, and leave
it as soon as hatched. It is believed by
many that they separate immediately upon
leaving the nest, each of the old birds tak
ing care of one the supposition being
that they would fight if allowed to remain
together. Iu corroboration of this some

Vui.oauiiv in DuloS. To people
who may fancy they are making them
selves more respectable, by covering
themselves with extravagant and gaudy
colored dresses, tho following contains u
whole some lesson :
" The honorable Miss Murray, sister
of a Scotch Duke, und maid of honor to
Queen Victoria, has been staying for some
days past in New Yoik. Miss Murray is
a lady of fine person, robust health, und
uncommon energy of character aged
about 35 years. She has visited severa.
of the public institutions, and been enter
tained by many citizens at tbeir bouses,
where her frank una cordial manners, her
sing liar intelligence and great kindness
of heart huve secured her m..ny friends
Miss Murray, we understand, litis keenly
enjoyed her extended lour in this country.
Sh" appears, however, to have been struck
wii.li umatenietit of the expenditure, the
7ielflsntii8, and the r.l-htabh of that un
fortunate class of beings, the fashionable
women of our cities. Miss Murray, like
all the fashionable women of Kurope,
dresses so plainly that it probably costs
her less to dress for a whole year, than
many a New York 1. dy expends for hull
a-dozen handkerchief J . It is u settled
thing iu Europe, that txtravaganee in
dress, is ihe very txtrenu of vulgarity,
und is never indulged in, except by those
whose only claim to distinction, is L10
length of purse." Lathes' Futerprise,

girl, "will rich and poor live together

dear, they will be all alike there." 'Then
ma, why don't rich and poor Christians
associate together here?" The rich lno'.h
cr did nut answer.
injury. If any one had abused him, it was
of no avail to uttempt disguise; he recog
nized his enemies in any dress, and by un
angry croak showed his displeasure, and
warned them to keep out of his reach.
He was a great gormandizer, and was ve
ry fond of Celd mice, many of which he
destroyed, fasting quite expert at fuidin"
their nests. iiudttirehinir out the iiimati
with his h'ug till, lie would have been
of service in the gaiden, were it not for
his ii.quisitive propensities, which led
him to pull up for examination every
thing he saw us plant. Though a desire
for knowledge might be very laudable,
this mode of obtaining it met our disappro
bation, and eventually caused his banishment.
Though a migratory bird, he did not
seem to suffer from cold in the winter,
and being fond of wuding, even kept a
pl.ice in a neighboring slough free from
ice till late in ihe season, by trumping
about in it. I provided him with a warm
house, but he preferred lo sleep w iih the
cows. He always slept . beside one of
them, lvinf flat on his breast, with his
ees folded under Ilim, and his head and
long neck turned back between his wings
He was on good terms with all the cattle
and might frequently bo seen playing with
them; his part of the performance consist
ed in springing up, flapping his wings, and
whooping tremendously. This was pre
cisely the si.me as the dancing of his wild
brethren. He would also dance to the
waiving of ihc handkerchief; and on win.
dy washing-days sometimes danced for
hours at a time to the clot Ins on the line
When much enragd, he would stand with
his head und bill pointed directly upward
and utter a harsh, croaking sound, quite
unlike his usual whoop.
