The Neptune boattlub of Staten Island
closed their week's festival yesterday with
a tub race, which drew out' an immense
multitude of spectators. The fun attend

Seven new washtubs were provided, but six

of propelling the tubs was by small wooden

A SPECIMEN INDIAN MAIDEN.
Miss Winnemueca, the Indian Princess.

From the Boise City (Idaho) News.
Harper's Weekley contains a highly poe
tic allusion - to Sarah Winnemucca, the in
teresting daughter of - Mr, Winnenraoca,
chiM o the Piutea, whose gallant exploits
m stealing horses and cutting the congnes j
out of defenseless emigrants will long be re
membered bvthe people of Nevada and
Southern Idaho with feelings of just pride
and admiration. Now this noble aborigine
daughter. Sarah no less is to come in
lor a 6hare of the honors which have been
lavished so unsparingly in days gone by
npon her illustrious sire, the old gentle
man Winnemucca. i Miss Sarah, says. Har
per's Weekly, .'-has written (?) a very saga
cious letter to Indian Commissioner Parker,
ia. which she has -eloquently portrayed
the wrongs of. her race." What internal
noodles some of these eastern people are.
If we are hot very, much mistaken, we bad
the pleasure of seeing, eouae year- ago,
M isa Sarah -at Catap hi cDerm it, Nevada.
She aud a few other' interesting relics of
the 'noble Ted man" were "being fatted at
the fort during that -winter for the spring
campaign against'- Idaho emigrants. The
emigration having stopped for the season,
"there were no other worlds to conquer, "
so Sarah and her tripe were about to fare
badly, as the supply of dried scalps, grass
hoppers and lice had been exhausted. Their
condition excited the sympathy of Uncle
Sam's boys at the Fort, so they were taken
m and cared for until . spring, when they
resumed ' their - favorite pastime of
stealing and murdering. But it is our re
collections of Miss Sarah we propose to re-
cite. Sarah waa at tliat time about sweet
sixteen or twenty it would be difficult to
. JV ial
judge' of her exact age from her appear
a.ice, owing to a careless habit she acquir
ed of never washing her beautifully chis
elled features. But as we had been taught
to judge the age of a cow by the wrinkles
n her horns, or the age of a tree by the
belts of, growth on its trunk, so we made m
slather at Miss Sarah's age by the number
of scales of greasy dirt which naturally
accumulated on the ridge of her comely
countenance daring the lapse of years.
She "was about four or five' feet
high how is that for Lor" and
not quite as broad as Jshe
was narrow. Her raven tresses, which had
been permitted to coy with the sportive
breeze; unbound, unwashed, and uncomb
ed, Irom her earliest childhood, stood out
inelegant and awry confusion from her
classically shaped eabese, which contribut
ed to her contour an air of romantic splen
dor. Her style of dress, though primi
tive, closely assimilated that worn by her
more fashioneble sisters in Paris and other I
big towns. It was the fashion of the day,
slightly exaggerated, consisting of an
dgant scarf, about a foot wide, cut
from an ancient . horse blanket,
which was gracefully girded round
her delicate waist, the circumference oi
which, owing to the scarcity of clover and
fresh crickets at that season, had materi
ally diminished, over which hung a beauti
ful set of skeleton hoops. These completed
the toggery of this sweet and simple daugh
ter of nature. Her feet were incased in
moccasins, and showed evident indications
of hard service and long walks over the
rocky hills and sage-brush plains, the mud
of her native heath, crisp and dry, clinging
tenaciously to her toes. And we are glad
to be able to annonnce that this divinity
was treated daring her brief sojourn among
the white savages, with all the respect due
her exalted rank and birth-right as the
only daughter and. heiress of that noble old
The Mammoth Cave.
The caves are susceptible of being very
much improved by a few touches of art.
Gas for example, might be introduced that
would exhibit the passages, arches, cham
bers and : rivers to great advantage. : It
would be worth a trip to see the Star Cham-
per liiuniinaiea witn gap.
People who have not experienced it are 1
incredulous when told that a journey of
twelve or eighteen miles may be made in
the cave without fatigue. This, however,
is a fact Ladies who eould not conveni
ently walk six squares in Cincinnati, made
twelve miles in the Mammoth Cave inside
of four hours, and cime out about as fresh
as they went in. The footways, too, are
very far from being as smooth as the
boulder pavements in oar streets. This
advantage is attributable to the atmosphere,
which is pure and bracing. Xhe atmos
phere oi the cave will not decompose meats
or- vegetable matter.
The proprietors of the hotel . have meat
vaults in the cave, where meats are pre
served for weeks perfectly sweet and fresh.
The wooden pipes made in making salt
peter in lal'4 are sun to be seen in the cave,
as sound as the day they were put in. Some
one suggested that the cave would make
excellent lager peer vaults. If it were in
this neighborhood, it would doubtless be
made available for that purpose, and in hot
weather it would be a pleasant place in
which to drink the beverage, the teni
perature, winter and summer, stands at 69
A very small portion ot the caves only
have been explored, and it is supposed
they extend fifty square miles. Those who
own the Mammoth Cave are very much
afraid that an outlet may be found on the
farm of some other petsou. and therefore
no survey has been made, nor are visitors
permitted to consult a compass in following
the guide. ' ' -
The Life of Eobei Hood. Lvery one
is familiar with the name of Robin Hood,
although so little is known of him. His
real name was Robert Jfitzooth, which de
generated in the mouths of the common
people into Robin Hood. He was an out
law, who lived in the reign ot liicuara
Coeur do Leon, and John, his successor,
about the close of the 12th and the begin
ning of the 13th centuries. - His head
quarters were in bherwood torest, riot-
tinehanishire. He is said to have been a
man of good birth: but having squandered
his property, took to the moods and be
came a "gentleman roooer. At
the time of Robin's exploits, the forest laws
were executed with great ngor; and it is
said that William the Conqueror, and the
Norman kings that succeeded him,destroy-
ed 30 parishes, pulled down 30 churches
aud depopulated the country for miles
around in order to have a fine park for en
ioving the pleasures of the ehase; conse
quently, a great numoer oi people were
obliged to flee to the woods. These out
casts, having a common interest, Danaed
together, and, by their vigilance and de
termination, were able to avoid the pursuit
of their enemies. -It is said that Robin had
a hundred companies, able bodied men,
who were so formidable that 400 men dared
not attack them. He seems to have pur.
sued a certain system in his robbene
and wishing to pacify his conscience,
spared the poor and plundered the nch.
He was particularly gallant to women;
hence it is not strange that his exploits
have ben celebrated in a number of ballads
and Bongs, extolling his chivalry and hu
manity to the poor. His particular com
panions were Jul t tie John and f riar auck.
At length, feeling the infirmities of age,
and being attacked by illness, he went to

Further particulars ot the Upton expedi

left: witbr: the '.icoltunn; and arrived
on- the -beach where the' landing
had been effected',', on the after
noon' of the same day; when their
companions, Benavides, the brothers Fna
to and Pedro Aparnio, and the colored man
Jose Valdes, were executed. On the 30th
a quantity of the. disembarked goons was
found, and on the 31st Medal went an a
prisoner aboard the gunboat Evo, together
with Jose xsidro x emannea ana x nomas
Almeyda, also of the Upton expedition.
Medal also wishes to state that two more
expeditions are to bo undertaken wKEfin a

ed by Lono, and the other commanded by
iuesaaa; tne latter is Btua looe ubb w
steamer armed as a man-of-war, and the for
mer by the Upton. And now Mr. Medal
makes some serious charges, beginning
with a statement that this phtntom of a
living liberty (Cuban liberty) is created bv
a club of men without faith er conscience,
and by them forced npon weak and sickly
minds; also that it would tre dimcuit to
make the people understand at once that
the so-called Junta of Cuba and Porto
Rico (New York Junta) is only a society of
assassins who live covered by the mask of
patriotism, and have no other aim than to
send innumerable brothers to die brothers
who imagine they are sacrificing them
selves on the altar of tneir country.
What did the Junta mean, he asks,
by sending an expedition to the beach of
Pnnta Prava. a place in possession of
the government, and without communica
tion with the interior ? What diabolical
idea possessed it to lose this cargo and the
125 or 130 men who came by the Upton ?
And what arrangements had been made
with those who were to receive these arms.
when it was altogether impossible for them
to reach the beach 1 This bitter and pain
ful truth brings the bad faith of these men

many companions of the expedition, had
been wandering lost about these moon-

him and to wreak vengeance on the
perfidious. The document I refer to is
signed by Louis Medal, and the other
two are couched in similar language, ihos.
Almeyda, who, I believe, at one time was
secretary of the Cuban Junta at Key West,
added the following particulars in his dec
laration relating to the treatment on board,
namely, that they were treated badly on
the Upton; that the officers lived "in clo

men had anything to eat or not. Also, that
there was no organization whatsoever; that

the same story of hunger and deilic

How Thet Act at Ettbopeaw Balls. On
Saturday night the Ministre de la Guerre
gave a grand ball; there were stars ana or
ders. and diamonds, and jewels of all
kinds, and the toilets were most brilliant
before the ladies went into action; but
alas! five minuted after they had got on
the floor, the ground was covered with
shreds and patches, and lace and blonde
and tulle lay about in little heaps. Mad
ame Ollivier was there, with her cordon
of Maria Louisa: but she still wors her
high-necked dress, and really the con
trust of the broad ribbon and the book
muslin was ridiculous, and the poor little
woman she is pretty, but stoops, and is
insignificant looked ill at her ease, Eoule
would not allow her to put on the lawn
colored satin, and did not wear his star;
but neither of them can stand the pressure
long, for there is no weapon so deadly to a
Frenchman as ridicule, and the fashionable
world keeps an unfailing stock on hand, al
ways ready for use. Monday the Empress
gave a ball, and as there was no hall in the
Toileries large enough to accommodate all
the guests at supper, a temporary refresh
ment room was erected in the private gar
dens of the palace for the accommodation
of the two thousand persons -who were
bidden to the ball. . To describe
this would be impossible. The crowd,
as may be imagined, was terrible,
the atmosphere was about that of Sierra
Leone, and nobody could dance, first from
want of room, secondly, because of the
plunging of the French military men, and
the kicking of the deputation from Albion,
each of these representative elements en
deavoring to outdo the other in rudeness
and ill-breeding, there were a number of
pretty and well-dressed American girls
present, bet to put these graceful creatures
into a circle of dancing Frenchmen is cru
elty; to give them to them as partners is
pretty much like throwing pearls to .

Value of a File of Papers.
A New York correspondent of the Roch
ester Democrat says on this subject:
"A complete file of the London Times is
quoted at 3,000 aUaling, and probably
would bring double that price if it were de
manded. This is a small sum compared
with American prices. A complete file of
anv important journal bears a value which
is hardly to be computed in money. Thirty-

What I Know of Farming.
Turnips should never be pulled; it in
jures them. It is much better to send
bey up and let him tihake the tree.
The guano is a fine bird, but great care
is necessary in rearing it. it should not
be imported earlier than Jane or later than
September. In the winter it should be
kept in a warm place, where it can batch
out its young.
It is evident that we are to have a back
ward season for grain. Therefore it will
be well for the farmer to begin setting out
his cornstalks and planting his buckwheat
cakes in July instead of August
Concerning the pumpkin this beny is a
favorite with the natives of the interior of
New England, who prefer it to the goose
berry for making fruit cake, and who like
wise give it the preference over the rasp
berry for feeding cows, as being more fill
ing and fully as satisfying. The pumpkin
is the only esculent of the orange family
that will thrive in the north, except the
gourd and one or two varieties of the
squash. But the custom of planting it in
the front yard with the shrubbery is fast
going out of vogue, for it is now generally
concedtd that the pumpkin, as a shade
tree, is a failure. Mark Tioain.
Effect of the Food of Cows on Theeb
Mnx It has lately been announced, as
the result of careful and long-continued in
vestigation, that the nature of the food
given to cows does not produce the slight
est effect upon the character or richness cf
their milk ; the only difference . being
greater or less percentage of water. The
experiment was tried of feeding tha same
animals successively with hay alone; then,
successively, with hay mixed with starch,
oil, rape-seed, clover, eta, thus giving
greatly varying proportion of nitrogenized
food, the milk was very carefully analyzed,
after each chanue of food, without show
ing the slightest variation in its chemical
constitution. The conclusion was, there
fore, arrived at that the variation or im
provement in. the aualitv of tha milk is
be accomplished rather by a careful regard
to the breed than to the food supplied
the animal. These remarks, of course,
not apply to the peculiar taste imparted
milk in consequence of the character of the
food of the animal; since it is well known
that the milk of cows which have fed upon
garlio very soon furnishes evidenoe of that
fact to the taste.
Jerome Napoleon Bonaparte—The Romance
of his Parentage.
Jerome Napoleon Bonaparte, eldest son
of the Emperor Napoleoif s youngest bro
ther, Jerome, died yesterday at i!timore.
This event wUL probably . bring, to a close
one of tbe most remarkable lawsuits of the
age; it is another important chapter in the
strange romance of which that remarkable
lady, Madame Patterson, still remains the
central figure. It is a story which many
of our readers will be glad to recall.
Sixty-seven years ago Jerome Bonaparte,
the youngest brother of Napoleon, arrived
in New York. He had joined the French
naval service, and accompanied bis brother-in-law
Gen. Le Clero to San Domingo.
While Le Clere was fighting Tonssaint L'
Oaverture and the yellow fever, the first of
whom; it will be remembered be .ovr-.
came by treachery, while the other over
came him by surprise,' Lieut Jerome was
driven by tha English navy to take refuge
in New York harbor. While his vessel
was lying in th bay watched :by
English cruisers,-Jerome madeatonrof
the Eastern States as far South as Wash
ington, where he was presented to Presi
dent Jefferson iu October.. 1803. At Bdii
more he met Miss Elizabeth PaU rson,
daughter of a wealthy-merchant of that
oity, a young girl of 18. Her uncommon
beauty attracted the attention of young
Bonaparte, and. won what little heart he
possessed. The. family position and con
nections of Jerome bonaparte bred tne
ambitious heart of Miss Patterson, and, a
few days after their first meeting, sho read
ily accepted his offer to make her at once
Madame Bonaparte and a member of the
civil family of the Emperor. The betrothal
was completed after a strange fashion of the
day at a grand ball given by
parte, at which Mias Patterson was his
partner. During the dance he threw over
her head a gold chain to whioh waa at
tached a miniature likeness of himself, set
in diamonds, and the lady bore it off ia
triumph. Thns the engagement was made.
Miss Patterson's father, however, disap
proved, and sent her away to what was
then known as the "wilds oi Virginia."
But as Bonaparte gave further evidences of
his attachment by sending letters to- that
secluded spot, her father relented, and
brought her home. The Spanish envoy
was charged with the formal demand of her
hand, the French Consul attested tbe con
tract, and Bishop ' Carroll celebrated tht
marriage ceremony on Christmas Eve, 1SU&,
Jerome Bonaparte remained in America for
fully a-year, visiting with his wile various
parts of the country. When they were
ready to go to Europe, Mr. Pattersen fitted
out the Erin, one of his own vessels, and
in the spring of 18G5, they embarked for
Europe, and arrived safely at Lisbon. .
The happiness ot Jerome and his bruie
was here suddenly brought to an end by
the information that Napoleon L, who had
advanced his brother with the design of
making him useful in some matrimonial
alliance with a European royal family, was
very much disgusted with his marriage.
He refused to recognize the marriage, ana
forbade the admission of the wife to French
territory. The husband left her at Lisbon,
and repaired to Italy to see tbe .Emperor.
It is probable that the young Lieutenant,
still enamored of his bean til al wife, made
some efforts to obtain her recognition, bat
they were probably not very strenncms,
and were certainly unavailing. ile

tbe evening, and was glad when bed time

She soon fell asleep and began to dream.
Now Draamland is Fairyland. All manner
of queer people are moving about in Dreaai-
land, and very remarkable things happen
t here. Florence had gone to sleep without
sLuiting her chamber window, and the wind
must liuve been a little cool; for she dream
ed that the snow lay upon the ground. And
she saw a man with a large bag slung dia
gonally across his breast sowing some kinds
ot seed. It seemed very strange to her to
see him catting seed on snow, and so she
dream that she asked him, "Will the seed
come up in the snow?"
V hen he heard her, he turned his face.
and she thought she never saw a farmer
with so noble a countenance. His eves
were Lvrg and sad, and yet there waa also
a look in then of calm hopefulness. -
" e how oar npseed grass on the snow,
in hopes that by and by the snow will melt
nud then the seed, sprouted by its moisture
will come up. And fixing his eyes gently
upon her, as if he would mark tha effect o
hw words, he said, "They who in this
world would sow the seeds of goodness,
ninst do as we farmers do, and often sow
upon the bosom of the snow."
bhe awoke so plainly did his voice
sound in her ears. Rising, she closed the
window, and again fell asleep.
In a short time she began dreaming more
strangely than before.
She thongbt that she saw a poor woman,
who was living upon a piece of very bard
and rocky ground, trying to plant thereon
some flower seeds. 'But every time she
opened her har-d the wind seemed to pufl
them away. At last, when her seed wa
almost gone,. Florence thought that what
laid st-e tued to be the wind began to look
like Lirds, and little by little they changed
to beautiful spirits; and she saw that they
caught in their hands the seed that would
have fallen on the rock, and threw it up
ward; an.d the seed seemed to fly np and
up till it was all gone out of sight
While she stood looking up, she thought
tiiat the skies opened; and she looked
through and saw those beautiful spirits.

forth oat of the palsied hand of the poor
old woman. No sooner did they touch the
ground than they sprang up again into all
aiauner of beautiful flowers more beauti
ful a hundred times than any lillies or
roses, or jessamines, that she had ever seen
As she stood admiring the wonderfn
sight she turned and saw the very same
person by her side that had been sowing
grais seed on the snow.- But now he was
clothed radiantly, as if the brightest clouds
bad been made into garments; and his
face, that was beautiful before, seemed to
her more beautiful than all the flowers.
Then he looked very kindly upon her, and
said, "My dear child, do yon not see that
only here and there a seed fell to the
ground and came up, but that all thw rest
went thron.h and were planted in heaven
So it is with kindness among men. Tha
earth catches a lew only of the seed of kind
ness shown, but all tbe rest go through and
are pianfe-d in heaven. And so nothing

worshipers of nature, no images are to be
found in temple of what may be called an
established religion. Buddhists are as
much dit sinters from the State religion as
are the Christians. Buddhists and Chris

orthodox faith, as by law established, can
not break the mummeries of image worship,

remarkable evidence of their determiuation
