Terrible Suffering on the Plains—Two
Men Subsisting on Grasshoppers and
Buffalo Bones.
Wo find tho following in tho Manhattan
(Kansas) Exprctt :
Nows recently reached Fort Rilcv. bv two
soldiers who came in on express duty from
rrairic-Dog Crock, that two men who had
started for Piko's Peak were lying in a starv-
lug cuumuuii ui, imcui uie uiBuvnv unoccupicu
stations of the lato express company of Jones
& Russell. The soldiers reportod that if ad
equate moans woro sent to their relief, it was
still possible that they might bo found alive,
although thoy wore left in a delirious and
I'ceblo condition. First Lieutonant Charles
Grillin and two others wore immediately dis-
patenca wun wnnt limited means tno iuar-U'r-inuslor
at tlio post could furnish. Tho
philuuthropic mission reached its destination

found even in a worse condition than repre
sented. Thoy hod becu at the statiun eight
days boforo tnoy were relieved by the small
quantity oi tea, bacon and bread tnac tne
Horgoaut, who first discovered thorn, could

sparingly, elao death would ensue thoy be

It annears that Lhev had lived on srasshon-

fed at tho station. Providentially, a fow young
shoots ef oorn were found to be springing up
about the station, and a dried skull ef a buffalo
bad boon thrown aside. They caught from
twonty to thirty grasshoppers every morning
while the dow was still on tho grass, until they
became too faint to procuro this scanty supply
of food, whioh they had to husband, in order
to make a fltow of grasshopper, buffalo hide
and young corn-stalks, in a small tin-cup, to
eat at night, to promote sloep and prevent
delirium. Thus they sustained life until they
obtained the cupful of tea, (about a quarter of
a pound,) two loaves of bread and a pound or
two of bacon, ion by the sergeant. When
found by Mr. Griffin, they were too debilitated

Interesting to Commercial Men.
A suit of the Atlaatio Bank of New York,
against the Paterson Manufacturing Company,
en trial in the Passaic, (N. J.) Circuit Court, for
a week past, terminated on Tuesday in a ver
diot for the plaintiffs for the full amount
claimed. The Trenton American sayi : ,
This aotion. one of much interest to the
commercial community, has settled, aocording
to the charge of the Judge, that negotiable pa
per issued fey a oorporatien for accommodation
is, in the hands of a bona fide holder for value,
without notice of Its peculiar character, valid.
In this oase, the President of tho Paterson
Manufacturing Company loaned, as the defend
ants allege, to a friend in New York, for the
accommodation of the latter, the checks of the
company to a very large amount, some $50,000.
'Ibis paper, maae psyanie to tne rresiueni -
individual order, and indorsed by him, was
passed for full value to the Atlantic Bank in
the oourse of business, and taken by them
without notioe of the fact that it was aooommo
dation paper, and that as these checks were
made payable at a future day, and the words
" acceptance waivea - were written across tneir
face, any holder would have had legal notioe
of their character. The court charged the
jury that even if the company had no power
to issue tne paper, yet, u mat laot aia not ap
pear upon its face, that checks in the hands of
a bona fide holder, without actual notioe, are
good against the company. ,
The Females of the French Army.
of
. Wo believe there is no army in Europe,
savs that ef France, whioh possesses an Ama
zonian rear-guard a rear-guard, however,
only in so far that it ia the duty of these who
composo it to follow the battalions to whioh
tlrj are more immediately attached.
To every battalion of the French army, both
cavalry and infantry, are attaohed a certain
number ef oantinieres and vivandleres, in ac
cordance with the permission of the command
ing officer. ' Some regiments have only three,
others four; while the regiments of Zouaves and
Chassours can boast ef as many as six.
Whother tho ladies are particularly attached to
tho eostnuio, or to tho gallant bearing ef the
men who compose theso regiments, we are
unablo to say. Theso, for tho most part well
eonduoted and brave women, are gonerally the
wives of men belonging to the regiment or
logimenta to which tboy are more immediately
attaohod.
The duty of tho cantinlerea is similar to that
ef the holder ef canteen when the regiment
is in barraoks or quarters, when before an
enemy in the field, they supply the men with
spirits', wine, tobacco, and occasionally luxuries
in tne way ot tooa, ana net nnirequentiy pro
vide a table for the officers; whereas the vivan
diare follows the regiment (as do the oantinieres
also) on the line of march, and even to the
battle-field, where, often under fire, they present
the refreshing cup of wine, or mu do vie, rrom
the little keg swung across tbeir shoulders, to
the parchod lips of the wounded or dying
soldier. In one instanoe during the Crimean
war, a vivandiere who was standing by the
side of a wounded soldier of the corps to whioh
she belonged is known to have reloaded the
firelock which had fallen from his hands, and
fired on the retreating foe.
Among the men of the regiments to which
the vivandleres are immediately attaohed it is
held as a point of honor to protect them from
Insult ana danger; while they, on their part,
are ever ready to sasrifioe their own comforts,
and at times even their lives, to succor a
wounded comrade, and they regard every man
of the regiment ai a comrade.

DSKADKUI, IIUBBICANR TWKXTY IiOUSES De.
molishkd. The Wilmington (N.C.) Herald ot
of the 23d inst. says:
A friond writes us from Rockingham the
particulars of a dreadful hurricane which
swept over Richmond County and the upper
part of Marlboro' District, S. C, on the 16th
Inst. The destruction of dwellings, crops, ic,
appears to have been terrible, ami it is feared
one or two lives have been lost. So far as
heard from, twonty houios are reported as com
pletely blown down; while the number un
roofed and otherwise damaged is almost unac
countable. A kitchen in Marlboro', in which
were four negroes, was blown clear away, with
out hurting the negroos. The oorn blown out
of the field into the swamps, Is represented as
being many thousand bushols. Pino trees two
and three foot in diamotor were takon up by
tho roots and carried two and three hundred
yards. Light wood stumps in tho open fields
were torn up and blown away. In fact, such a
wind has novor boon oxperionccd in that soc
tion before.
A Bkautii'ui. Skntimknt. Tho late cminont
Judge, Sir Allen Park, ouco said at a public
meeting in London:
Wo live in tho midst of blossiugs till wo
aro utterly insensible of their greatness and
ef the source whenco they How. We apeak
of oar civilization, our arts, our freedom, our
laws, and forget entirely how large a share is
due to Christianity. Blot Christianity out of
the pages of man's hiatory, and what would
his laws have been what his civilization?
Christianity is mixed up with our very be
ing and our daily lifo; there is not a familiar
objeot around us which does not wear a dif
ferent aspect becauao the light of Christian
love is upon it not a law which does not
owe its trust and gentleness to Christianity
not a custom which can not bo traced, in all
its hely, healthful parts to tho gospel.
Walkihq on tbk Water, Mr. Ilickock per
formed his feat of walking on the surfaco of
the bay, yesterday afternoon, in presence of
nearly lour nunurea spectators, l ne perform
ance took place on the north side of the island,
a short distance froom Moodie's wharf. Shortly
after four o'clock Mr. Ilickock left the shore In
a beat and donned his " boots " in about seven
or eight foot of water. By means of a long
pole he steadied himself for a second, and then
walked off with a brisk step. After walking a
fow rods, followed by a large number of boats,
he turned briskly round, and walked back to
the place where the bulk of the spectators were
standing. Although bis boots nave ratner s
clumsy and unwieldly-like appearance, Mr,
ItiokooK appeared to move about witb great
facility, and in whatever direction he wished.
After marching upon the water for about half
an Hour, Mr. Hickook approached the land and
explained the theory of his invention, lie also
stated that In a short time he expected to ap
pear in another pair of "boots," in whioh he
wonld leap into the middle of the bay and
walk about where he pleased Ttronto Olohc.
The Pbsciotjs Metals. The latest reliable
investigations as to the disposition of the im
mense quantities of the precious metals now
produced, point to an annual consumption of
twelve millions sterling in the arte, seven
and a half millions sterling by loss and abra
sion of coins, and ten millions hoarded in
Europe and Asia. From England alono tho
foreign export of silver duriug seven years,
(1851-57,) was forty-six millions sterling,
and gold i4,7UU,uuo. in ieoo, equivalent to
sixty millions of dollars; in 1857, to eighty
millions of dollars, and from the Mediter
ranean ports, from ten to fifteen millions of
dollars annually.
Abrest of a Robbkb. An ex-penitentiary
convict, named Charles Allden, was arrested
last night by Marshal ConTroth and officers
White and Whltzel, upon a charge ef robbing
gardner near Kanesvilie of tour hundred
dollars in silver, during the late State Fair.
Allden, who was discharged from the peniten
tiary about three weeks ago, oonfessed having
assisted in the robbery and spent his sharo of
the plunder, amounting to about two nunurea
dollars, in this eity since Saturday last. Forty
six dollars of the stolen money were fonnd in
his possession. He appears to have lived like
a prince during the brief period allowed bim,
and said that he only rogrotted being arrested
before he oould spend all his funds among the
gay associates or eitner aex ne touna in tnis

The celebrated physiologist, Magendie,
says that medioine is a groat humbug. He
knows nothing about it and knows of nobody
who does. He says that when he was physician
at the Hotel Dies, 3,1)00 to 4,000 patients
Eassed through his hands every year. These
e divided into classes. , With the first he fol
lowed the regular dispensary practice ; to the
other he gave bread pills and colored water,
Sometimes he oroated a third division, to w jom
he gave nothing all, and though they fretted,
and often made themselves sick becauso they
could not get medioino, thoy always got well.
There was little mortality among those who
had the broad pills and colored water, and the
mortality was always greatest among those
carefully drugged according to the dispensary.

favorite Sultanas of Abdul Medjid, and a mu
sician, with whom sbe eloped. The Sultana
has the odd name of Sarsafras. She is a young
and beautiful Circassian, who lately was
the harem of the Sultan. She was much
prized, and was oovered with presents. As she
had a charming voice, she took singing lessons
from a dlrootor of the music of the palace,
Italian named Quatelli. One day, when out
driving, she entored a house leading to the
Bosphorus and disappeared with the musician,
not forgetting tho diamonds and other riohea
which she possessed through the munificence
of Abdul Medjid. lie was sorely out by her
ingratitude.. Perhaps she, whom he oalled the

"the character of a perfeot lawyer." The

In a word, while he lives, he is the delight
of the eourt, the ornament or the bar, tne glory
of his profession, the patron of innocence,
upholder of right, the scourge of oppression,
the terror of deeeit and the Oracle of

Washington Correspondence.
WASHINGTON, September 28.
Tho correspondent of the New York Jlcrahl
says:
I am informed that some additional prepo
sitions to those already before our Government
have recently been submitted by Mexico, in
regard to the settlement of claims, and for pro
tection, or tbo manner or protecting tne xransit
route. .
Among tho proposed stipulations to be con
sidered by Secretary Cass and the Mexican
Minister , is an important one in relation to
the settlement of claims of citizens of the
United Statos upon Mexico, which requires
that tho claims be adjudicated by four commis
sioners, two to be appointed by the President
of each government, and an umpire, to be so
leotei by the commissioners, or in oase of their
disagreement by tbo Seoretary ef State and the
Mexican Minister, and the amount of such ad
judicated claims over the $2,000,000 which the
treaty has provided for the payment of them is
to be sottled by ton annual payments of equal
amount, with intorest at six per cent until
paid, bonds to be given for the amount, which
will be receivable by the Mexican Government
for any export or import duet to that govom
mont. it is proposed also to obviate tho objections
of tho Mexican Government to our proposi
tion for tho protection of tho transit routes,
by tho appointment of a commissioner by
eaoh govornment to reside at suitablo loca
tions, who in case of disturbance of the peace
upon auy route, aro to make tho necessary
domands of tbo Mexican authority for troops,
which, if disregarded for n, period of fen
days, may bo made upon tho nenrcat land or
naval forces of tho United States, who, after
giving proper notice to tho commissioner, or
if ho be absent, to the nearest local author
ity, shall proceed to the scene of disturbance
and quell it. As an evidenco of the good
feeling entertained by the Liberal Govern
ment of Mexico toward citizens of the United
States, President Jaurez has extended to a
citizen of New Jersey valuable mining facil
ities in the State Sinaloa, which were to ex
pire on the 1st of October next, for two years
longer. . .,. . . ... i

A failure of the grape crop annoys our citi
zens almost as much as a general potato rot
would, for the roason that almost ail house
holders train a vine in tboir roar yard noon
which, in the various eav)iloyments of pruning
the sticks, trimming the side-shoots, crushing
the caterpillars and fumigating the insects that
infest it. thoy spend a great many happy hours
efthe growing season, and hang about thoir
vine rich elusters of homely pleasure. The
vine pays for itself, though there should be
never an edible atom of fruit forthcoming.
When the purple elusters do ripen fair and
plump, silver would scarcely outweigh their
value in the eyes of those who have watohed
the growth of every leaf, the twining ef each
tendril and shading of eaoh grape. The vines
of New York and Brooklyn gonerally escaped
the frosts of June, which, In many parts of the

is no denying that the Isabella, which for its
hardiness bas long been a tavorite in tnese
parts, is diseased.
Soino young vines in well-sheltered cor
ners havo even this year produced hand
somely, but as a general thing, tho lower
leaves havo turned brown ana are falling
prematurely, leaving the clusters to ripen
unevenly, or not at all. Close pruning, upon
which this effect was charged by many last
year, is not the cause: for those which have
been allowed to run riot in luxuriance

trimmed back. ' At the last meeting of the
Farmers' Club the subject was talked over,

another year. At the worst a tolerable crop
can be raised with care, and no other speoieB
of vine promises to do enough better t justify
its hasty adoption in place of our tried
