Thin hair is thick TO r r t.V ? tH ened, falling hair checked, and bald ness ofr.cn, though not always, cured by its use. Nothing can restore the Imir -where the follicles aro destroyed, or the glands atrophied and decayed. But such as remain can bo saved for usefulness by this ppplication. Instead of fouling the hair with a pasty sedi ment, it will keep it lean and vigorous. Its occasional u-c will prevent tho hair from turning gray or falling oil', and eoiiserptently prevent baldness. Frea from those deleterious substances which nmke some preparations dangerous and injurious to tho hair, the Vigor can only benefit but not harm it.

Now and then, with a sudden j plash of the smooth waters, a shoal of j h! very flying fish would dart into th-j ai-, j and skim swiftly along on outstretched wing, .jjst dip upon the surface of the water iiaui to i.'artio liieir u -yio pom n, and tlien double off in ano'her ilirei tion to elude their reU-ndess and untiring ene mies the fierce aibiecre and the nimble bouitu ever on their track, darting along a foot or so beneath the surface, ' Kaven ous, unfaltering, and determined, these li-h-eating li-'o wooid foliow the frighten ed little fugitive till some poor winged tiling tell tired and desparing into the fanosgUtening ja ws just thrust an inch or two out of the water to catch it. Hete the s.vitt and glittering dolphin, swiltcst of all fish, would c!uis the silvery prey with uuconceiTahle rapidity, now and then revealing its course by immense bounds through the air, often of twenty yards and more ; there, an ominous looking, tall,, black' object, standing still und upright from the water, told where lay the quies cent shark for that ugly angular thing was bis straight dorsal flu ; while the gaudily-striped black and golden pilot fish might bo. seen shooting about beneath tho vessel's quarter, every now and then dart ing oil to its savage lord and master, llirds . of gorgeous plumage, unknown name and curious cry, came ever and anon, to gaze lor a moment at our long black eLip and her taper r-pars ; arid then, off they fl-iw among the brilliant little insects and splenpidiy painted, butterflies which were winging their frail flights across the boBona of the sleeping Mozam bique channel.

After coming to an. anchor, all hands went to hreakfa!, and when the cravings of the inner man had become duly satis fied, I armed the crew of my own whale boat, and set off fur the thore on a recon oitring expedition, in order to ascertain whether any native? h wtile or peacea ble were to be met with, and also to pick out the most likoly epot whence 'to obtain a' stock of wood and water. Hoisting the 5ail, a light fair wind soon wafted us to tha neatest little islet. .Hut hare nothing rewarded our patient search. Low, inip?tet rabid jungle, together with soft black mud, marked with what aston ished us, the footprints of some strange and monstrous beast, formed an altogether Ui.tnvi ir, vi!d-rnis. Proceeding to the trext and largest inland of the group, how ever, we found abundance of go'id water, and a fair proportion of dry-wood tree fit for our purpose. II iving selected a suit able landing place, sn I seen no trace of in habitants, I gave the older to shove oil, and the hoat's head was or.ee more turned towards Iter massive iniMress, looming fiir and trill, at anchor in the distance. '1 'he mainland was only a mile or so from where we now lay on our oar?; and, as I srazed in that direction, the temptation tj visit it the curior-ity to explore a strange coast came strung upon me. ) 'Veil, bns,".' faid I to my crew, .' "vvh;:t do you jay for a Ftretch as f.-tr es the siioteaway there! There is a lead ing wind, bur going and coming, and we might find hotter wood ami water." This latter cxprcs-uoii of opinion was Jo save my dignity from suffering by any sus picion tf idle curiosity. Ot course,'-my men were on'' too de I lighted at the prospect of a run ashore the islands being small, uninteresting,' and uninhabited. Il iuliog aft the main .sheet, nnd keen- j mg the boat away tor tho desued coast, J ! 'f-Log Tom, my boat stecrer, in charge. and uretchtu invself out in the s!ern- i f beets, whilst the rest of the crew follow- ! e ,n-v csampla by throwing themselves intt) the most comfortable positions they could f.tjd along the-thwarts. Tho brcezij was gradually falling i liuhter, and lor some time we sailed gently on, still and silent, save for the I m"ie-l 'aP of the rippits against our bows.

Then my sturdy oarsman gave way with a will, and the ligh t whale boat was soon dartiog swiftly forward to where the ob- jct of our cariosity h id last appeared. 1 was standing on the bow platform, directing Lo"g Tom at the steering oar, when suddenly we "brought up all stand ing"' against something hard, upon which the bot had run ";tcm on, like a nor' wett butLtlo," as my mariner? exprebaed it. "Starn all 1 Starn all I" I roared. As the boat was backed off, an enor mous beast-heavily raised its huge head out of the wr.ter, gave us a look, uttered a loud sort of snorting bellow, and then sank dawn again in the muddy water, through w hich we had not been able to discern it. "IJoly sailor, Bill!" I heard the bow oarsman say to bis nearest ''shipmate. "What is it! I'm blest if I ever saw such a thing before, and I've been whal ing, man aad boy, nigh upon twenty years." "Pass me up the iron, boys," said I, interrupting the" conversation, 'and if it comes within reach, again we'll snon find out what kind of a creature, it i.".' , A whale boat is never without the gear of her profession; and so, when my in en taw me handle the harpoon, tbey:pave an approving shoot, and eagerly " gave way again in oledience to my order for them to pall ahead. ' ! With iron poised and ready, I was in tently watching for the strange monster's re-;ppearance, when uay boat stoercr cried ; - . -. r -: - - "There they are, 'way in hore there ; a bull pchool ov 'em." " Sure enough," the glietening 'black backs tumbling about in the foamy white water showed where a number of the un known fish or fctrange amphibious antmaU were enjoying themselves. "Look- out ahead, sir! Look out ahead 1" roared Tom again. "There's somethin' just broke water." The next moment I had darted my iron into a back as broad as that of a whale calf, and was shouting "St am all ! Starn all ! Duck water, my boys I". " As the boat sl.ot back and the line ran out, the monster that I had harpooned made desperate plunges to reach us. As it rolled " nn.I tossed about in its ngony and purple, I saw enough of it to know that we had fixed a hippopotamus. Oiving a succession of savage roarp, and - vainly tryins to grasp the firmly holding iron with its tremendous teeth, the wounded beast sank down , in the muddy water, here only a couple of fathoms deep. Then the air-bubbles ris ing to the surfaee as lie breathed, together with the long crimson track as he bled, showed us exactly the course that he was taking, and ;lu3 was direct for Lis compai -ions sorting together in shore. Our prey went at a great speed, con sidering kis ponderous build, and we were cumpd'ed to follow, or cut tho line - the last thing I thought of; so, in a very few moments we fo.und ourselves right in the midst of the herd of hippo potami, who-e huge, unshapely heads w;re rising all around, whi'sl the wicked trl'.ttcr of their savage looking little eyes seemed concentrated upon us with looks of wonder, fury and surprise. .Inst then, unable to stay bpneath the surface any longer, th wounded monster rose to breathe, and then turned upon us with a terrific roar. "Starn nil ! Starn all for your lives !" I shouted. - - The tough ash oars urged us clear of the savage brute's charge, but then the boat sfeorer cried "Hold on. sir ! Hold water ! Here's half- i-doz?n uv 'em astarn coming right for u." "Hold wat;r, every man !" I roared; then, espying a clear course to the right, continued. 'Toll the port oars. So! Nw give way of all ; give way, rr-y lads! Pull for your lives!" And I was paying out line all the time. Hat up from the muiky water rose two of the brutes, one mi cither side, only a few feet distant, and with hujje dUtended jaws they rushed upon us. Snatching up one of the boat-axes, whilst Long Tom left his steering oar to the next man, an I niroilaily armed him self. I sprang to where one of the hippo potami was almost touching the gunnel. and then, with all mv strength, dashed the keen axe blade into Ids flat black ti' se. Wiih a roar louder han that of a doZ"n wild bull of Madagascar, the mon ster vanished, cpnuiing blood. Lone Tom bad also succeeded in driving oil" its companion, though tut before the latter had ni do a o'eat rent in the side of the b"at, rtnl bad also very neatly capsized her. A shudder ran through ns nt our narrow escape we bad not timo for more.' The rest of the shoal had now come lip, and were making the foam fly in every direction as they dashed through the water to attack us. It wits a terribly critical moment ! We could no longer escape by rowing, for the monsters were all around. If once they should succeed in overturning our frail boat, wo woold assuredly perish horribly amongst them; their gleaming great tusks and wide gaping jaw woiild pitilessly rend and t?ar us limb from limb. Very fortrma'cly, it suddenly occurred to mo that I bad read somewhere of hip popotami being frightened at the noise of lirearms, though I well knew that their amazingly tough skins were quite proof agrii.'ist ordinary spherical leaden bullets. "l'jck. op your muskets be quick, ray lads !" I cried, acting u,on the insnira tkn. "Let each map choose an object then fire all together." Just as the fierce little p'g-like eyes were glaring close upon ns, and thi terri ble white fangs were glistening in close proximity, the loud roar of our volley echoed across the water, and then the sulphureous smoke-wreaths hid the plung ing monsters from our sight. At the same instant, however, one enormous beast reared its vast bod3' half out of the sea, and every man shuddered as he ex pected it would dash our weak boat to atoms ; but, at the flash and noise of onr guns it fell back, though, even in doing so, it nearly capsized us, and half filled our little craft with water. When the smoke cleared away, our formidable pur suers had disappeared. After a moment ary pause in thankfulness at our marvel ously narrow escape, the whaling spirit returned, and I said - "Pass me a lance. Long Tom, and we'll settle the f I'ovr we're fast to, any bow. Givo way, my hearties, anJ let the two bow bands haul in the line."- Proceeding thus, w e . soou cams up with the wounded beast. Then for' a moment poising tLe bright lanes over ruy right shoulder, I sent it deep iuto the heart of our unwieldy victim. With a few tre mendous roars, and after a last desperate htruggle to reach us, the strange amphib ious creature went into its 'flurry." Af ter sinking for a few moments, it once more rose to the surface, and, like a dead whale, floated on its side. With considerable trouble we managed to tow our prize alongside the Lone Star. Upon measuring the carcass we found it fourteen feet from stem to stern or rath er, nose to tail and no less than twenty three in girth. It was an immense brute, sure enough. That night onr mariners, long tired of salt junk, rejoiced over tender, succulent, and well flavored hippopotamus steak, for we found the flesh of the monster re markably good, even delicious. A RCJHXCEorTHECCUDEa. Many interesting stories have been woven out of the incidents of frontier life, particularly in connection with the Indian' wars, but not unfrtqucnf ly a case i3 de veloped which foes to show that even in this department the romance of ihe real transcends the ideal, and we think the lit tle history we have got to tell, Hnd which is substantially true, i un instance ot this character.. Oo Wednesday last, a rather strange looking party might have been seen per ambulating the street of our citv. A certain peculiarity in thir dress arid gtit would at first have conveyed the idea that they were Indians, but when their faces and persons were attentively examined, one was convinced thaf, al though evidently fresh from an uncivilized lif , they belonged to the Saxon race The man had long hair flowing down his back in a tangle of ringlets, but neverthe less singularly fine and glossy. Hd bad an unkempt beard, almost concealing a raiher handsome face, tmd looked about thirty years of age. The womn was, perhaps, a little older find appeared full of vigorous health and had a roguish but rather prepossessing countenance. Tle boy was about six years of tge, with black, sparkling eyes and evidently pos sessed of no small intelligence. The par ty visited the office of the Chief of Po!ic, and during their stay the following par ticulars concerning their history were given, and in a manner so simple that no doubt of their truth could ba entertained: The man's name is Kimball, and his companions were his wife and child. In 1843 he was captured by the Indians, when on his way to California, and car ried into the interior. He was not treat ed cruelly, but his escape was carfully prevented, and years elapsed and he re mained still a captive. Gradually h-s became accustomed to Indian life and half reconciled to its wild fiecdotn ;id savage accompaniment. After eight or ten years had p issed he met among the Indians of another lriho a young Ameri can woman who, although not o::ly resi dent but thoroughly domesticated among the savages, retained the marks of her parentage. We need not describe the incidents of their intimacy. Ix)ve vows are q-iiekly consummated under such cir cumstances, and in due time Kimball be came the husband of the Indian-American girl, . and they continued to live among the Indians, enjoying a fair share of happiness. Kimball learne.l that his wife had been captured on tho frontier when a child, but was so young at the time that she retained no remembrance of her parents or friends, or the circsmslan c. s under which she was carried off. In the course of time the busbsnd, who had learned the Indian language, taught his wife to speak English, and n imaginative mind may p'cture them sit ting over the camp fire and talking of the strange destiny which had shaped their lives. It is not surprising that they ul timately framed the design of paining civilization. The birth of their child made the father moro anxious to carry this info effect, and he baa nt last suc ceeded, his wife accompanying him. On reaching the frontier they were without money, and were considerably delayed, but finally managed to-reach this country. The man's intention was to reach, if pos sibly, Springfield, 111., where, he says, he formerly had some relatives, and then if he could obtain some means, to go on to Ntw York, where he has a brother living. Their visit to the Chiefs office was in search of transportation to Spring field, and thiv were referred to the May or's oflice. Kimball is fully versed in Indian manners, and exhilats also, we regret to say, a truly savage proclivity for "fire water," otherwise whisky. He can give the war-hoop dance, Indisn dances, and, in addition, performs sundry athletic feats which are qoife remarkable. We must not- forget to add that he and bis wife exhibit the liveliest affection for each ruher, and appear contented and hap py. The boy is exceedingly bright, and speaks English well, and Indian better. St. Louis Jl jnd'tic-m.' . The IIoxest Irish Uot. -There was a lad in Ireland who Was put to work at a linen factory, and w bile he was at work there a piece of cloth was wanted to be sent out which was short of the quantity it ought to be ; but the master thought it might be made the length by. a little stretching. Ho thereupon unrolled tho cloth, taking hold of one end of it himself anil the boy at the other. He then said : "Pull. Adam, pull." "I cannot, sir." "Why," said the master. "liecauso it j is wrong, sir," said Adam, and he refused to pull. Lpon this, the mastersaid ne would not do for a linen manufacturer, and sent him home, but that boy became the learned IJer.

On one occasion be had located himself on the strn guard of a wharf boat, where a boy WMsli.-htrg. Poth were pa tier.rtr AwailinZ results- At the interest ing juncture of a bite at the boy's buif, Houston threw out bis line, which hope lessly entangled with that of the boy. There was a pause. Neither seined to have h woid tit for the occusiou At last Houston broke the ed. nee by sayir g : "Sonny, go elsewhere and Sh, and then well avoid entangling alliances." "You b'a-ted old short coat," i torted the bud cf promise, "go elswhere yourself and fish." :I nppre!icn! you r.ro a vry saucy boy," returned the Senator, "for whom there's by no means rods enough in pickl." "Now, look here old skeeziefcs," cri-.l the boy, folly ngitated, "I don't wnt to quarrel with you, nor nobody like you. Your name is Sam Dawson, and you bv in Texas ; and, like v.erj body else, a Mole a h"ss, and had logo there; and now you are putting on a big shine, old thief, and calling yourself Sam Hous ton." Saying which, this very anfiabl creaturo gave a sudden lurch, tind puil'd the honorable gentleman's rd from hi hands and threw it into the river. In relating this in bis characteristic Style, Houston f.aid : "I have met men in debate at the bar, on the stump, and upon the fl.wrs of Congress, but never was I so completely discorofitted. 1 ho boy had decidedly the best of me, and from his looks, 1 knew when be said tht I stole a 'boss' in bis heart of hearts bo believed it. Ihirpcr's Dr ucir. Misprints. We met with an odd misprnt in a country newppapsr the other day. It stated that a young ladv, at an amateur concert, had won a well -deserved encore by the exquisite taste with which she sang the well-worn old song. "An Angel's Whisker." This is nearly as good as the famous paragraph, which, by the substitution of a "c" for an "b," made a railway train run over a cow, and "cut it into calves " We read once too, in an account of an assault case, that the medical witness, on examining the complainant's head, found an i icised wound there which was "two inches long and feet deep." 'dome feet" was rnispriut for "somewhat," ery badly written. The report t was a Scotch man, and, having missed the exact dep'h of the wound, bad cautiously indulged iu a vague generality. Dean Stanley stated, at a peblic meeting a few months ago, that a correspondent once wrote to bina to ask wbat he meant by a passage in oco cf his works, containing the words, "tha horns of the bursting beast." Ou refer-, ence, be found that this was the humor ous way in which a prinler chose to r" produce "the thorn of the burning bush.'
