Wandering aciong tlie woo is on the i-umiuit of the moun tain ridge tiiat n- liehind Kletie.i, I had otten heard in the spring, proeeecing from the ceep fjrotF, aringle ci"ar note, lKUgtlu-aod and mellow as the toue of a flute, sometimes alone, sotneUou-s fullowea by another, about two tones lower. Tbs note were muUriy sweet, and their suaden recurrence at rather loag intervals, in Id lone and sombre silence of that lofty ele vation, imparted to them a romantic character, which aiaie me very desirous to Cacover their author. A the sammer rime on, however, I ceased to bear them; but in the beginning of October, as I was wandering again in the same locality, I was again startled by the interesting sounds. As I proceeded on the very lonely road, through tliehuuiid wooda, where the trees were loaied with orchldea and wild pines, and the dank stones hidden by ferns and mosses, the note became more frequent and evidently nearer. It being useless for a white man, with shoes, to at tempt to follow retiring birds among the matted woods, tangled and choked with climbers, and strewn witii loose stone. I sent ia Sam with a gun, with orders to follow the sound. He crept silently to a spot whence he heard it proceed, and saw two birds of this species, which neither he nor I had seen before, chasingeach other among the boughs. He shot one of them. As be was coming out into the road, he imitated the sound by whistliog, and was immediately answered by another bird, which preaeaUy came living to the fdace where he was, and alighted on a tree at a ittl distance. He fired at this also, and it fell ; but emitted the remarkable note at the moment f falling. Scicses or Hk.ht d S:ix i Vi-lti ar.s. A poor German emigrant, who lived alone in a de tached cottage ia this town, rose from his bed. after a two days' confinement by fever, to pur chase ia the market some fresh meat for a little aoup. Before he could do more than prepare the several iagredioau of herbs and roots, and put nis meat tn water lor tne preparation of bis pot tage, tb paroi ysm of fever had returned, and b laid himself oa his bed exhausted. 1'wodays elapsed la tnis state or ucipiesoaess and inani tion, by which time the miM of meat and pot herbs bad putrefied. The stench bocominr very perceptible in the neighborhood, vulture after v Itn re, as they sailed past, were observed al ways to descend to the cottage of the German, and to sweep round as if they had tracked some putrid carcase, hut failed to find exactly where it was. This led the neighbors to appreheud that uie poor man liy ieai in his cottage, as no one had seen him for the two last days past. His door was broken open; he was found ia a state of helpless feebleness; but the room was most insufferably offensive from somethingputrefying, which couid not immediately be found; for the fever having deprived the German of bis wits. be had no recollection of bis uncooked mesa of meat and herbs. No one imagining that the kitchen pot could contain anything offensive, search was made everywhere, but ia the right place. At lat, the pot lid was lifted, and the cause of the insupportable stouch iicovcred in the co rrs pled soup-meat.

Criminals in Spain are not hanged as they are in J.n.land, or inn I lotined as in France, but strangled upon a wooden rtage. They sit down on a kird of chair with a post behind, to which is affixed an iron collar with a screw ; this iron col lar is made to clasp the neck of the pri inn er, and on a certain signal it is drawn tighter and tighter by means of the screw, until life becomes extinct. After wc had wailed amongst the assembled multitude a consid erable time, the first of the culprits ant.nr- ed ; he was mounted on an ass, without fid dle or stirrups, hia legs being allowed to dan- gle nearly to the ground. He was dressed in yellow sulphur-colored robes, with a high peaked conical red hat on his head, which was shaven. Between his hand he held a rarchinent, on which was written something, believe the confession of faith. Two priests led the animal by the bridle ; two other walked on either side chanting lita nies, amongst which I disdneuished the words of heavenly peace and tranquility, for tbe culprit had been reconciled to the church, had confessed and received absolution, and h.id been promised admission to heaven. He did not exhibit the least symp oja of fear, lid dismounted from the animal and was led, rtA .1 .1 rii upioruu, up tne scanoia, wnere no was placed on the chair, and the fatal collar put a 1 1 m a . - rotina rus neck, une ol the priests then in a loud voice commenced saying the Belief, and the culprit repeated the words after him.
