A little daughter twelve years of age, named
Minn, of Christian Rausch, ti German farmer
living about a milo and a half from Burlington,
Racine county, in this State, had a sevore
attack of measles and dipthoris. .:Sha had
nearly recpveedjijojni theaon the 8th. day of
Januany, when she called her father to her
bedside and told him that she was going to
sleep for a long long time. She said she would
look as though she were dead, but she would
not be dead, and she made her father promise
that he would not bury her, which promise, it
may be readily supposed, has been faithfully
kept. Soon after making the request, the
child, to all appearance, sank quietly and
peacefully into her last sleep. By all it was
supposed tha. Miua was dead, . and' tlie body
was enshrouded in a coffin. After the. sleep
the body showed no siens of death although
the pulse and heart ceased to perform their
pulsations, and no device could show that the
respiratory organs were in use. Th eyes
closed. In this state Mina has Iain for twenty
(lays, without a sign of life and with no sign
of death, other than the sinking of Ike- cheeks
and ejes, which would be natural with one
who had fasted for so long a period.

The frequent killing and capture or disper
sion of these marauding, bands, and tho des
tructibn of their villages arid crops of late, by
oar troops, has made Ihem more than usually,
cautious and cunning in their depredati.ona,
and the officers have had all tlieir knowledge ,
of Indian warfare and perfidy put tp the tesV
in dealing with them.
The campaign of the ' .present season. itj3
hoped will go far to put an end, to Indian boss
tillities, both for the sake of the white people
of Arizona. and the interest of humanity, end
because of the expense to the government, ,a$it ,

The life of all fishe3 is one of porpatual war-j

which is permitted to perplex our reason on
rth. We know, however, that without it the
populat. on of the sea would soon bocome so
immense that, vast as it is, it would not suffice
tor its multitudinous inhabitants, Few fishes
probably die a natural death, for some seem
to have been created solely for the purpose of
devouring others. There is none, probably,
which does not feed upon some other species
or on its own.
Many of the monsters that roam the watery
plains are . provided with maws more than ca
pable of engulfing thousands of their own
kind a day. A hogshead of herring have been
taken out of the belly, of a whale, A shark
probably destroys tens of thousands in a year.
Fifteen full sized herrings have been discov
ered iu tho belly of a cod.
Sea birds are scarcely le3s destructive to
fish than fish are to each other. The solon
goose can swallow and digest at leait six full
sized herrings per day. It has been calculated
that the Island of St. Kihia, assuming it to be
inhabited by two hundred thousand of these
biids, feeding for seveu months in' the year,
and with an allowance of five herrings each
per day, the number offish necessary ior the
summer subsistence of a single species, of bird
cannot be under two hundred and fourteen
millions. Compared with the enormous con
sumption of fish by birds and each other, the I
draughts made upon the sea by man, mih all
his ingenious fiihing devices, seea'to dwindle
into absolute insignificance.

The operations of the treopj during the last
quarter hare been of considerable interest, es
pecially in northern Arizon v, where the scouts
of Gen. Alezander, Col. Price, Major Clon-
denin and Lieuta. Hasson, Somerby and Wells
have resulted in the capture of numerc-as Iu-
dians ; the killing of 64 and the destruction of
the vidages and property of several warlike
parties of Indians who have been committing
outragfs and killing the settles in the Terri-
tor. ' I he war parties of Indians are mostly
roving Apaches, some of them being from the
hostile branch of the Ilauipais tribe. The
chief of this tribe is an active and sanguinary
wretch, known as "Sheerum,'' who has been
twice captured and escaped a3 rr. any -times.
Col Price is once more on his track, with good
prospects of again corralling- the wily lavage.
When caught he is to be-sent to San Francraco
to vegetate on Angel or Alcatraz Island. 'Ottfer

Tlie best joke that we have heard related of
the believers in 'spiritual knocking,' is. tojd of
a man in-Norfolk county, iu Virginia, who, a
few weeks since, visited the honse of a neurit
-boring farmer, and as soon as the dishes were
removed fiom the sapper table proposed to
have a 'sitting' with the family in the kitchen,
to see if hia-dear guarJian angel, St Luke, ;
wouldnot make some new revelation; , ,
After sitting in a deathlike silence for about, .
4 ton minutes, soma one hinted the poaaifeiKjjjr

upon the table with decided emphasis, and ex
claimed 'Gentlemen, I know .that I've had,
communications from ray dear guardian angel,
St Luke. Yes. you may laugh aa much as you
like, but St Luke-is in the room neow ! Yes, his
blessed spirit is here. I feel something neow,
in my trowsers! Yes, I ohlahlki-kil take
him cout! take him eout!'
And here the geutleman leaped from his 1
chair, grasped with both his hands that portion '
of his pantaloons which is usually worn thin-,
nest, and beggel the spectators iu the most -pitying
tones to 'take him eout' or he should
'die on the spot.'
Requesting the ladies to leave tho room, the
gentlemen present made an examination of tho
3piritualiat's pantaloons, and found them to'
contain a mouse, thattBy the stillness of the
company,, had been induced to leave his quar-

St Luke, as he now avoids all spiritual assem- .,
blies. and is immediately silenced when ho
attempts to introduce the subject of spiritual1
knocting8, by the mischievous boya exclaiming
'Take him eout ! take him e- o-u-t !'
Gextlb Hint; The publisher of exchanrs
talks in the following strain of 3ome of his de
inuuints. We reproduce it as a timely theme
to some of ours. "We say just here and once ,
for all, to that class of incorrigibles who care
no more for polite dun than a dog does for
the gospel, that snch as have means we pro
pose shall pay us; those who have got no
property have got a good thing on us, and

be permitted to remark that a man too mean
to pay the printer, must have a small sdul.
Small is no name for it. Yott could blow stick
a soul through a humming-bird's quifi into a
mosquito's eye, and the mosquito looiild nt
