Again, there Is foucdon tbe Ohio, near twenty
miles below Wabash river, another remarkable
work of antiquity. It ia a very large eave, With
smooth perpendicular walls, and a level floor.
The walls are coverea witn nierogijpnto n
gures, cut ia solid stone, and are well executed.
Among them : are representations of animals
unknown to the present generation. This cave
ia one of tbe greatest curiosities on the Ohio,
and Id connected. wUb a dark, dismal cavern,

When we view me ancient mounas ana toman
of the West, we are lost in wonder, Id view of
the number, magnitude and obscurity of their
origin.' There are several ' hundred of these
works In thevallejsol the Ohio and Mississippi
rivers, and some of them are found to be filled
with thousands or human ekeietons, Indicating
that they were places of deposit of the dead.
Thev also bear tbe appearance of having been
contiguous to some large and populous city.
. many strange ana cunou antiquities nave
been, from time to time, exbaned from these
moupds, and it ts most significant, thai, in a great
majority of laatances there exists a remarkable
resemblance between these relict, found in tbe
nineteenth century, and articles ' which are

By far tha largest proportion of the two last

Taking Into account the Continual Influx of

transference for re coinage trj (he sister estab-

tha eont nent and other Datta or tbe worm, it
may bo inferred that the boniber'of, piece of
gold bearing tbe "Image and supsracrlptIoa"of
royalty, ana cireuiaiitiK ib idii idobbouu vna
of 1861 among her Mejestj'B, tlegee In Great
Britain and Ireland, amount to at least 100,.
nod 00a . Taking the. bonutatlon of the Islands
buted, the gold coinsge would be oi sufflolent
magnitude to supply every Inhabitant, young or
old, with the s im of 3 6t. 8d; , ..,..;.
Of tbe silver coinage oi tbe realm, results
from tha testimony of official documents, and
from evidence adduced by Dr.- Graham, F. R.
B. r master. -of the mint, before the Dsolmal
Coinage Commlsaioo. show that there are also
In circulation among tne subjects ol tbe Quito,
of .... .r ' . ,
Half crowns ....
In all forming a total of 5208,227.625 pleoe of
silver money. The coinsge ol crowns, half
orowns and fonrpenoea baa been auspended for
many yearei and it ia more than doubtiul wheth
er any more of either denomination of cola will
ever again be attack at tbe Royal Mint.
Coming now to the Inferior metallic currency,
that of copper, and drawing from the same un
impeachable aonrceeoi information, we find that
there are do lesa than fire hundred millions of
amoog os. Their total oarrenl value reaches
perjoe.jtiall f e jceand farthlogt doing attire doty
to a million and a quarter sterling, and thair
weight avoirdopoia la 6,000 tons! . mi.,:
Of tbe new broose money there have been is
sued several hundred tons, or perhaps twenty
millions of noin, and in time the entire copper
coinage, battered, worn, unsightly and heavy as
It ts, will be superseded by its moiegraoelul
and omvenlent rival. If aix thousand tons of
thaCjnixed metal", be converted Into pence,
halfpence and farthings, of 40, 80 and 160 to
the pound weight, tbe proportions of the new
money, instead of coins weighing 24, 38 and 86
to tbe pound, tbe proportions of tbe old, why it
is evident that the publlo will get nearly donble
tbe Domber of coins, of a current value, from
the-eame weight of metal, of two and a half
millions of pounds sterling, iostsad of ooe mil
lion and a quarter sterling. .
From these statistics we deduce the fact that
the grand total Dumber of coins of gold, silver
and bronze, now la circulation throughout the
British Itles, leaving the colonic out of tbe
question, is undoubtedly not much less than nine
nunorea million or aimoet one coin to each
inhabitant of tbe globe. BaofisA Ptptr-

i Courtships are the sweet and dreamy
tbreshulds of unseen Edeus, where half
tbe world baa passed in couple, and talked in
whispers under the moon and passed on, and
One of the saddett and most suggestive sight
We ever saw, waa the worn threshold at the end
of tbe grass-growing path, with neither house
nor hearth beyond. Nature had done what
She could to make that threshold beautiful; ahe
had perinadtd a strsggliog viue, but till! it was
a sad thing to look at. Tnere was no shelter
bejondj no resting place for love and Lope; the
root bad gone down In fierce surge or red
flame, and so on one side as on the other, it wse
a wide, wide world.' ,
That old threshold seems to us a dial upon
which human sunshine came until the day
grew dark and cloudy. We thought of the feet
tbe little feet in red ahoes; thought of tbe
couples that, perhaps, stood there, when there
were door posts beside the thresholds stood in
llhs mild moonlight when hand stole into band
one strong tbe other plump and fair'. And
we tbougbt or tbe cheerful errands that bad
been borne over It, when glad feet cleared it at
a bouud.or but Just touched it and glided Into
tbe small summer day of home. And that
worn threshold it like the days of courtship.
there is a paradise
