The Mound Huildera of Tennes
see. An interesting lecture was recently de
livered in Nashville, by Dr. Joseph Jones,,
uu the Tennessee mounds and their build.,
era. Iu many parts of Teuuessee are found
large artificial mounds, tho product of a
race of people very dilTcrent fiom tho sav.
ages who were faiuibar to tho early settlers,
ll tese relics have olien exciti-d the curios,
ity id' those who taw and examined them.
Dating the war, when the Stale was lo the
hands of the Utiton force", tho excavations
iiiuiie ai Ch.iunoogi, Kuoxvillo, Morfree&.
born and Nashville, revealed a groat many
cuii'i'H remains, which were carried away
lu the North.
Dr. Jones biguo a scries i f explorations
a year ago, and has aucceedtdn collect,
lug und classifying a lemaiknblu array of.
relics and remains. In (a ilea county he dis.
covered tha remains of a great chief, bu.
ra'd wiiii niiuitr.ius relics, aud around him.
the ikeletohs of some of his subjects. Dnf .
ing into the sides of the artificial mounds,
ash. s, Inlaid' I'litery, und bones of both
human beings and shimali were found,
mixed up in oue congruous conglomeration,,
often wi ll b-aiiuful specimens of vases and
alieil ornaments, lie also luuud large stone
idols curved out of a dark Iron. colored rocK
the 1 ngrtst s :ue thirteen inches iu height,
uni iho others perhaps four inches less in
siature. Oue represented a lemale with
ino hair gathered up behind a sort of water,
tall, while iu iho longer specimen that of a
male, ihu hair was represented twisted into
a ton of cue, not unlike the stylo of our
fort lath, rs lu tho Revolutionary limes. In
ibegivat uiuuud near Frankliu two remarka
ble vases y.ero louud, one not unlike a
child's 10)!, w ith the opening nt Ihe heel,
and the other surmounted wilh a carved
brad with a helmet, having a remaikablo
res mblanca to thai of a Spanish cavalier.
Hare was also found the skeleton of a child,
tho fare of which was covered wiih a curi-'
ous hlicll hearing occuH hieroglyphics,,
anion,; which could be distingm-bed per. '
loci triuuglea.
Many i. liter rnriotis relics were discover
cd by Dr. Joues, wh argued Irnm the na
ture ol these leuiains that Ihu uhonginal
lace of mound builders bad co ne in con.
tact with Ihe Souiidtnavians explorers of
this continent, H:nl also that they must have
had Sime, rmninuiiication with tho later
Sp.iish missionaries. The Tennessiie
