The CHINGARORA TOBACCO g ows from the rich soil of the “ ORIENT,” and is possessed of a pe culiarly delicious flavor entirely unknown to tbe to bacco of all other climes. But its unprecedented popularity has sprung from the fact of the entire ab sence of that deadly poison Xicotin, which permeates every other tobacco, and which is the one and sole cause of the distressing nervous diseases, dyspepsia, &c., whiclr hiosi invariably sooner or later, lollow the indulgence of the pipe and cigar. At the recent aualyzation of tobacco from all parts of tbe world at the Academy of Sciences, in Paris, the renowned Chemist, AI. Lamoureaux, declared that while Eu-, rope an and American tobacco contained fully eight per cent., and the purest Havana tobacco from two to five per cent, of Xicotin, the CHINGARORA did not contain one discoverable i»arlicle of that deadly poison, a drop ot which, extracted, will destroy life. Our Agent at BOMBAY has shipped uslargequaai tltie9 *of the CHINGARORA during the past two years, and although we have been pressed to supply the demand for this delicious luxury to the veteran smoker, yet wc arc now prepared to offer it in unlim ited quantities, at a price mcch lower than some American tobacco of a far inferior quality. A connoisseur has but to smoke the American to bacco and RCgars, which are invariably chemically flavored, to be disgusted with the medicinal taste which leaves a nauseous, unhealthy coating in the mouth, and in time seldom fails to shatter the ner vous system. The natives of the “ORIENT” smoke the CHIN GARORA from morn till night, from youth to age, and arc happily unconscious of tin wild, distressing fire which courses through the veiDs of the inhaler of the fumes of tobacco containing Xicotin. We invite every lover of the weed to try the CHIN GARORA. and guarantee unprecedented pleasure in its delicious flavor. UNSOLD EVERY WHERE. EDWIN M. COOK «£• CO.

LEWIS pierce, Attorney,and Counsellor at I.aw, No. 8 Clapps Block. j«m DAILY PRESS. PORTLAND. Wednesday Morning. April 10,1867, Appropriate ui Filling W ork. The organ of the Portland Democracy has been running what he deems a parallel Ire tween the treatment of the poor, oppressed, down-trodden, king-riddeu, loyal and patriot ic South, and the American Colonies at the time of the Declaration of Independence. The Southern States which, we suppose, were forc ed i»to rebellion against the Government ot the Uuited States,as the Colonies were against the government of George III., hare been treated by the majority of the Northern peo ple, precisely as they were treated while the Democrats were the Pitts to pleiul their cause, and now the Amerieau Congress continues its oppressions, heaping upon them all sorts of insults and indignities, refusing to let them again become the dictators ot the majority, and jiersecuting them for their loyalty and devotion to the Union, the Constitution and Laws, which they so gallantly exhibited for four long and bloody years. Our contemporary is well employed—/U tinyly employed. These men of whose op pression he speaks were and are his political and party brethren, birds of the same feather and have done no more in the way of rebel lion than he lias seemed willing to excuse and palliate if not openly justify. Upon them be depends for the ie-establishment of party power. They have been Democrats of the most approved modern stripe, all the time. Why shouldn’t he come to their defence ? It is true, our fathers rebelled against a for eign government in which they could have no voiee, and against oppressive laws upon which thev could have no vote; they rebelled only alter long and persistent effor‘s for redress of grievances proved fruitless. The Southern Democracy rebelled against a government in which they had more than an equal voice with others; agabist laws of their own enacting, voted for ,by their own representatives and approved by Presidents of their own selection, and instead of first asking for redress ot of grievances, they openly declared if allowed to write out the terms of remaining in the Union, on a clean sheet of paper, they would spurn the proposition. But no matter for all(this. They were Dem ocrats from whom the government had been wrested by a majority, and rather than re main under a government they could no long er control they were disposed to break it down, smash the whole machinery, and set up ou their own hook. This was all right, of course; involved no crime, and tbereiore in curred no penalties; hence the Argus com plains of the probation imposed upon them, the disfranchisement of the rebel leaders, the enfranchisement of the loyal masses, and the security demanded against future rebellion. And in this the Argus is light. W.e insist it is right; for it ought to be consistent and it is consistent. It is light, not because its cause is just or its premises sound, but be cause it should stick to its friends, stand by those whom its counsels have encouraged tc. go astray, and uphold its brethren in their humiliation and distress. Extremely fitting and appropriate is such a work. The Argus would come back ou its friends if it did differently. It would not be true to its instincts. It would be guilty of inconsistency. It would do worse; It would do an act which really loyal men would ap prove, and that would prove it - no longer a fitting Democratic organ. Sce»»« the Ottawa River, Caaatla. Since the days of the Apostles and the early Christians, perhaps there have been no religionists in the world more zealous and per severing than the Jesuits. Their courage and determination have scarcely been equalled by any religious sect. There were no difficul ties they could not surmoun1, no obstacles they could not push aside and no distance they could not overcome. Their spirit and resolution always mounted with the occasion, and their zeal was always equal to any emer gency. Far from being “fair weather Chris tians,” no storms could dampen their zeaJ, no difficulties abate their enthusiasm, no earthiy power make them despair. ' Tho bright star of Hope was ever in the ascendant and al ways leading them on to new conquests. No portion of the globe where human beings I dwelt they did not visit, no mat'er how dis tant the places nor how meagre the facilities for travelling. Some two hundred years ago these Propa gandists from France crossed the Atlantic and ascended the St. Lawrence river for the purpose of establishing posts and converting that portion of the New World, Indiana and all, to their religious faith. Their zeal left no stone unturned, and they swung half round the circle,establishing posts on the banks of the St. Lawrence and the shores of the great lakes. They passed through the unbroken forests making friends of the Indians and eu during untold hardships. From Fond du Lac the head of Lake Superior, they travelled through the forests and over the prairies (o the Mississippi river and down that mighty stream to New Orleans, selecting their loca tions and giving names to places which they still bear. In the situation of grounds for their posts they evinced a strong love lor the beautiful in nature, choosing the most romantic and picturesque spots for these locations and mak ing things pleasant as well as useful. But these Jesuits must not have all the credit nor the lion’s share ol it for selecting such beautiful places. The Indians were the pioneers and first pointed out those romantic stations. It is a well established tact that these sons of the forest Lad a keen eye for beautiful land and water prospects. Let us hear what the poet Akenaide says: “What then is taste bat these interns! powers, Active ami strung, ami feollurly alive To each strong impulse? A discerning sense Oi decent and sublime, with quick disgust From things deformed, or disarranged, or gross In species? This nor gems, nor t tones of gold, Nor purple state, nor culture can bestow, But God alone, when ilrat hit active hand lmpriuta the aecrot blao 01 the aoul." The Indians, in their native, untutored state, confirm Dr. Akenside’s view of such matters. These Jesuit priests, with their ad vantages of high culture and the refining in fluences of Christianity, had no keener eyes for the beauties of nature than the wild sons of the forest. And if their religion had been inculcated with less imposing and glittering ceremonies, with less outside show and (capti vating forms, fewer convert*, probably, would have been made among the aborigines of our country. Their eyes are more highly pleased than their heart* deeply touched. It is a ro iigion that plays about their heads with many charms. But after all, perhaps it is better than no religion. And yet we have failed to learn that our own civilization lias, improved the character of the Indians. One thing is quite certain, our “fire water” has greatly de moralized them. But this is a digression from our main ob ject. On the Ottawa river is a place called “the Lake of the two Mountains.” Wher ever the waters ol tbe Ottawa or the St. Law re free rivers widen out and spread over a con sidtvable territory, these places are called lakes. The waters of tbe Ottawa thus spread out. frciffr ^e Lake of the two mountains. Here is an IaJian village of long standing, which in the Indian language is called Kan naxtakee, \Thich means a “village at the foot of the moun t»jus.” Back ol this village, not far distant, are Iwo mountains of quite re spectable magnitude for Canada. They would not,however, in Maine*, be dignified with such a name. They would be classed among tbe hills. On the soutlicrn slope of those hills are built several stone chattels to which the Cath olic priests and Indians retort lor private de votion, and tor partios of a picnic charm ter. The red men and women are fond of bavin^ a good time, and th o priests are * enough to indulge the,a a gtone Near the shore of tl»e lake sl“* church with its tall steeple which ha* be«n built nearly two centuries. This church the village and mountains back of it, with the stone chapels risinf; from their sides, make quite a respectable show from the deck of tl:e steamboat as site passes up the lake. Tl a building of the stone church so many years ago and so tar up the Ottawa river on the then wilderness, shows the zeal aud (lerscver ance of the Jesuits of past times. For near ly two centuries religious services have been held in the church, and hundreds and thou sands of the sons and daughters of the forest who worshipped there have died and their names aud deeds have long since passed from human memory. One Sabbath morning wc enjoyed the nov elty ot attending worship in this ancient church. T lie house was well Ailed for it was a bright morning in the month of June some ten years ago. There were ,wo French priests ' who officiated on the occasion. They preach ed both in French and Indian. Such a congregation we never saw before. The au dience was chiefly made up of ludiaus, men, women and children. There were some Frencbmeu present, rough looking fellows who eyed the Indian girls with much compla cency. The priests were very active in the performance of the ceremonies. The church was decently well furnished with the appara tus usually employed in such meetings. It was a warm day, yet many of the Indian women were wrapped in blue broadcloth blankets. All who had them wore them. No matter how high the mercury runs, these gar ments are always in deniaud. Several of the elder squaws sat upon the floor, aud some were upon toeir knees. They, apparently were quite devotional, while the youuger oues appealed more indiflerent, or east their dark eyes towards the Frenchmen who cheerfully returned their gaze. The priests were bob bing about and chanting in more lugubrious tones than w» ever heard from a Babbi in a Jewish synagogue. When singing was called for the Indian women engaged in that service with great zeal and enthusiasm, hath music we have never heard in church or out of it. The women screeched and screamed to the full extent of their vocal powers, and the men added those gutteral tones which have their homes in the Indians’ throats. The har mony grated harshly upon the car, hut there was one characteristic in their music worthy of note, and that is time. The Indians are wonderfully gifted with a perception of time and measure. During their musical perform ances they kept most admirable time and seemed to lie moved by a single impulse. That was the only redeeming feature in their music. Among the singers there were two or three female voices which with pioper training might have been made rich and musical. There was one voice especially that found its way through the screeching jargon aud fell on the ear in sweetest cadences. Tha* voiee came from a young mother in whose veins flowed a good share of French blood. She was called a half breed, but we tbink there was more of French than Indian blood that made her heart beat and that French blood once coursed through aristocratic veins. As it is with many negroes of the South, so it is with some of the Indians of the North, the blood of the noble and aristocratic gives them beauty and animation. We have never seen a more beautiful woman than this young mother. Her form was laultiess and her counte jance all that an artist could wish for a model of facial beauty. Her features were finely chiseled, her eyes were dark and thll of heaven's own light, her forehead was Grecian, and just high and broad enough to be beauti ful, her teeth perfect and white as pearl, her lips expressive of much good humor, her face oval and her complexion a brunette of the softest hue. The reaier must not consid er us too extravagant and euthusiastic in praise of this young mother's personal beau ty ; for it was all aud more than our words can paint. It must be so, for the lapse ot ten years has not driven ber image from our mem ory. By her side was a papoose, fastened to a highly ornamented cradle-board, wrought in curious figures with beads and the quills of the “fretlul porcupine." From its head stream ed many ribbons of various brilliant colors.— The little brunette babe was stretched at full length on this beautiful board, covered with a flannel whiter thau the Canadian suows, and ornamented with beads all iound the border* Tbc infant's arms were not confined, but the rest of the body was bound last to the cradle board so that it could scarcely move, yet it was quiet as a lamb, and occasionally gazed upou its handsome mother and smiled, such a sight was interesting, and we had some cu riosity to know who was the tortuuate man to have such a wife. When the meeting was over she passed out with her babe atd walked on the sandy shore of the lake in front of the church, where a gentle breeze from the water played with the long, dark hair that tell Over her neck and shoulders in shining masses. The bright ribbons that ornamented her babe's cradle-board streamed out and floated in the wind. She wore a tine blue blanket over her shoulders, but her head was uncovered. Her small feet were encased in moccasins of most beautiful workmanship. Sottly she trod on the beach, and locked away across the lake as if she expected some one to come. But who could she be? That question was answer ed. Soon a light canoe, paddled by stalwart arms, was seen skimming across the lake, gracefully rounded up to the shore, aud the beautiful young mother and her babe were ta ken on board and away they passed up the lake to their lodge. She was the wile of a young chiet. The mystery was solved and the spell was brokeo 1 The word Ottawa is pronounced by the In dians as if written Ot-taw-waw, the accent being on the second syllable, with the broad sound of A. This word is solt and musical as spoken by the Indians. The meaning of It is the ear; so a French priest informed us. But he confessed he could give no satisfactory rea son lor such an Interpretation and yet such it is in the Indian language. It is a very loug ear, for the Ottawa river courses from the source to the St. Lawrence abont eight hun dred miles. Tbe stream divides about thirty miles from the city of Montreal, one branch running into the St. Lawrence twenty miles above that city and the other branch mingles with it fifteen miles below, thus forming the Island of Montreal which is one of the most valuable tracts oflnnd in the Canadas. Per haps it is destined to be to the British North American possessions what Manhattan Island , is to the United States, B. The Poblle Oebi.
