T0ac Power of R1eligion Ilui
A husband and wife, in New York,
who have lived in harmony and in
terrupted confidence for nearly a t
quarter of a century, have recently
had a tmisunderstanling, which grcw I
nut odf some trivial family circum- 1:
stance. The wife took deep urn- t
-hra'r at somc chilimg remark of her I
liusband, and left him and abandoied t
er falily of children. Her ah- 1
sence cocastoned great distress, and .
; efforts were made to bring her home;
lmut she had resolved never nain to L
iye 'with- her husband. 11er friends r
xpostul:uted, her son enmtreated, and t
tite 1eighbors who had noticed her
laing years of joy urged her to return
to her fatnily. The interference of a
these parties only heightened her,
anger and intensilied her htate, and
she finally wandered off from the
scenes of home. She went to Cit'
Cinnati; was pursued by her fricinis
and hearing of their approach, left.
The next that was heard of her, shein
had, arrived in this city. - Ier hus
band and son arrived here otn Satur
day m ring sought an interview
ivith her, which after much hesita
tion, granted; but only to give posi- ,
ye denial to their entreaties. The b
hus)and 'owed down with heavy
grief,. finally asked a clergYmtan to
visit her. The priest complied, aidl
the restilt of his conference was, dleep

and a desire again to see her hints. I

cleerfully return with tlhe.n to New 9

girl's eyes were closed, so she only
laughei at their terror, and ordered
theu to proceed to the cemetery.
Tie young woman's eyes opened
again at the gate of the cemetery;
but the burial still went on. Tie
collin was shut and lowered into the
grave, but when a few shovels.full of
earth tia I been thrown in, a knock
ing was distinctly heard in the inside
of the collin.--This knocking grew
louder and louder as the grave was
illed, and at last, the sexton, half
lead with terror, threw down his
shovel and ran home, where he took
to his bed, in which he still remains.
[ier friends now had the coffin dug
p and opened; but seeing that the
3orpse gave no sign of life, they had
t buried again, and proceeded to fil!
up the grave, when the knockings
were again heard louder than ever.
The collin was now taken up a
sccond time, and carried into the
.hurch, where it reinained until the
12th. A doctor who was sent for
r,.on Valence, opened a vein, from
Vhich the blood flowed abundantly.
[ncredible as it seems, evena this ifact
,vas not considered as conclusive of
leath not having taken place, and
he poor girl was new buried for the

again heard as distinctly as before,
vhen the earth was begainning to be

'rtheless looked upon her as dead,
mnd this time the burial was comple

For some weeks past, says the New
York Express of Monday, a lone Indi
an tent has been standing on the wes
tern slope of Fox IDill, Hoboken, the
inmates of which were an old Indian,
his squaw and a son. They are wan
derers, we believe, from sonic Canadi
an tribe, and came to that neighbor
hood about two months ago. On Sun
day last the chief' of the wigwam, who
had been ailing for some time past,
was gathered to ti land of' his flit ers.
A few days previously the squaw had
set olit for tihe State of Maine, to
bring two children she has on the fron
tier to the tent, to see the old man be
fure the Great Spirit called him home:
but. her errand, alas! it turned out, was
undertaken too late. The secene at t lie
tent, as soont as it was known the in
dian was dead, was curious and aflect
ing. The son eat mutely and moodily
on tle ground, with his arms folded,
tind his dark piercing eye sorrowfimily
fixed upon the corpse of his dead sire.
It seemed strange to him that they
should put the body into a caflin, inl
stead U'interrin'g it after the inanner
of' his own peopIle?
As soon as the coflin was carried
away by the undertaker, the teit was
ruthlessly rifled of imost of its comtents.

Indians had been taking fi- a liveli

Les of some kinid-hearted wo melt, who,
with those tetlder and hum1inane i mpuls
as native to the sex, had all along been
attentive to the wants of the dying
itranger. The tent itself was cat r'ed
tway even, leavinig the surviving Indi
in to imake his bed on the cold damp
