Should Have. A Detroit Sensation-A $10,000
A singular confidence gamohas been
played in Detroit. A smooth tongued
ndividual nninca lilunt, formed the
acquaintance of a young lady of the
city, and acquaintance ripened into
friendship and friendship into love.
lilunt gradually ingratiated himself
Into the good grace of the younir lady's
family, and became- their confidential
adviter. Learning that the father of
bis inamorato had some real estate
worth about S13.00U, which he desired
to sell, Blunt obtained authority to
sell it, and the title deeds were put in
his possossien. Uu the strength o( them
he put on a great many airs on 'Change
and was generally regarded as a man
of property. Not finding a purchaser
at (13,000 he lowered the price to 10,
000, for which ho fold it, 6,0()0 being
paid down. With this sum Blunt at
once decamped, and Iihs not sinco been

or next month, but it seems a mockery

actual rising, and thut the embryo in

The Halifax (N. S.) Recorder tells
the follow iug story of this individual:
About ten years ago a man named
Pratt, who possesed in a remarkable
degree tho roving disposition, happen
ed to pass, through the township of
Enniskillen, and seeing tho gum beds,
as they were termed, shrewdly guessed
that there was something good to be
found there. He accordingly bought
seventy acres of lapd in which is now
tho center of the oil districts, und after
having the gum analyzed at Hamilton
left tho country. He went to the
silver mines of Mexico, where no doubt
he found adventures enough to satisfy
even his spirit, and on the breaking out
of the late war he took up arms on the
side of the South, and fought the Yan
xees ior iour years, in me mean time
nothing was heard from him, and on
the discovery of oil in Enniskillen his
estate was administered and reverted
back to the Crown. About three
three ago however , tho stopped over
into a large oil establishment, announc
ed himself the original old I'ratt, and
politely requested tho soi disant propri
etors to clear out. Utterly confounded
these gontleinen handed over 9100,000
to quiet the title, and Mr. Pratt set off
for Ottowa, where he asked the Com
missioner of Crown Lands by what au
thonty his land was taken fcora him
and given to others. . The answer was
in so far satisfactory that he set off in
high gloe, and when, the . writer met
him on the cars, was on bis way to Oil
Spring, to give a number of wealthy
trespassers, as he considers them, par
ticular scissors. He expects to realise

Ability and Indian Skill.
The name of each tribo of Indians
has a signification, which is represen
ted by a sign that is well understood
by them all.
The Camanche, or "Snake," is indi
cated by making with the hand a wa
ving motion, in indication of the crawl
ing of the reptile.
The Cayenne, or "Cut Arm;" by
drawing the hand across the arm, to
imitate cutting it with a knife.
The Arapahocs, or -'Smellers," by
seizing the nose with the thumb and
The Sioux, or "Cut-throats.by draw
ing the hand across the throat.
Tho Pawnees, or "Wolves," by pla
cing a hand on each side of the fore
bead, with two fingers pointing to the
front, to represent the narrow, sharp
ears of the wolf.
The Crows, by imitating the flapping
of the bird's wings with the palms of
On approaohing strangers the prai
rie Indians put thoir horses at full
speed, and persons not familiar with
their peculiarities and habits might in
terpret this as an not of. hostility; but
it is their custom with A iends as wsll
as enemies, and should not occasion
When a party is seen approaching
thus, and are near enough to distin
guish signals, all that is necessary iu
order to ascertain thoir disposition is
to raise the right hand, with the palm
in front, and gradually push it lor ward
end back several times. They all un
derstand this to be a command to hult,
and if they are not hostile, it will at
once be obeyed.
The astonishing aptness of the In
dians in "tracking" is shown by this
intercatitie pastace from a writer on
Almost all the Indians whom I have
met vritn are proncicnt iu this species
of knowledge, the faculty of acquiring
which appears to be initio with them.
Exigencies of woodland end prune li'b
stimulate the savage from childhood
to develop faculties important in the
arts of war and of the chase.
I have seen very fewwhilomon who
were good trailorn, and practice did
not soetn muterially to improve the
faculties in this regard. They have not
tho same acute perceptions of those
things as the Indian or the Mexican
It is not apprehended that thisdifllcult
branch of wood-craft can be taught
from books, as it portains almostcxclu
sivcly to the school of practice; yet I
will giyo some facts relating to tho
habits of tli" Indians that will Xa-jlli-tate
A party of Indians, for example,
starting on a war excursion, leave their
families behind, and never transport
their lodges; whereas, when they move
their families they carry their lodges
and other effect. If therefore, an In
dian trail is discovered with tho lodge
poles upon it, it Las" certainly not been
made by a war party; but if the tracks
do not show the ttace of the lodge
poles, it will be equally certain that a
war or hunting party has passed thnt
way, and if it is not desirod to come in
conflict with them, their direction may
An Indian, on coming to a trail, will
generally toll at a glance it age, by
what particular tribe it was made, the
number of the party, and many other
things connected, with ltastOHishing to
I remember upon one oocassion, as I
was riding with a Delaware upon tho
prairies, we crossod the trail of a large
party of Indian.? traveling with lodges
The tracks appeared to me to be quite
fresh, and I remarked to the Indian
that wo must be rmar tho party. "Oh,
no." said-iie. "the trail was made two
days beforo in the morning," at the
same time pointing with his finger to
where the sun would bo at about eight
o'clock. Then, seeing my curiosity
excited to knew by what means he ar
rived at this conclusion, ha called my
attention to the fact that there Lad
been no dew for the last two nights,
but on tho previous morning it had
boon heavy. He then pointed out to
mo spears of grass that had busn press
ed down into the earth by the horses'
hoofs, upon which the sand still adhered
having dried on, thus clearly showing
that the grass was wet when the tracks
were mado. ...
