Indian Revenge. --The Springfield (llli nois) Journal has the following para graph, copied from Ihe Lacon Gitzetie: "Among Ihe overland emigration for Calilornia, lust sprintr. was Mr. Green, ol "Green's Woollen Factory," Fox river, and two of Ins sons, the youngest a youth. It is reporieel that while passing itirnu.h a tribe of Indians, this youth, who was nal urllv full of mischief, killed a squaw. The tribe having been well advi eil of the fact, hastened after and overtook the corn pany, unJ demanded the murderer. At first the demand was resisted; but a'ler ill.' lu ll hiis had informed thm that they would destroy the company if their request was net granted, the vouih was surrendered in to their hands. They Ihe.i stripped him, anil in the presence of his lather and the whole company, they skinned bin from Ins head lo his feet! He lived four hours alter be was thus Hayed. Ths shold be a warning lo all interested, not to trille with the unfortunate sons of the lorsl. Men may commit the same crimes with out being. equally wicked. The man who runs away with a homely woman, with red hair, is a much more depraved wretch than he who Hies south with a beauty. The tuipituile of vice sometimes depends upon Ihe temptation. The Cincinnati Commercial contains an aelvetlisenient of "The Ladies Anti Sluvery Sewing Circle" requesting the members of thai delectable association to meet at some private house. This notice reminds us of the "Ilookey cum snivem Club," and the "Poke-your-nose-iiito oth" tr-peoples- business-Society." The Albany Dutchman truly remarks that the best looking thing about a girl is cheerfulness. We care not how ruddy her cheeks may be, or how velvety or kissiblc her lips, il she wear a scowl she will be considered ill-looking even by her friends. while the girl thai illuminates her lace I with smiles will be considered l andsome, ! although her complexion be coarse enough , to grate nutmegs on. As sunshine is to the landscape as perfume is lo ihe rose to it cheerfulness to the countenance and j good nature to the lovely. Girls, think of this. LcisukB Hours. It was a beautilul ob sertaiion of the late Wm. Hazlu, that "there is room enough in human life to crowd almost every ait n.l science in it. If we pass 'no day without line' visit no place without the compaoy of a book we o.ay with ease Gil libraries or empty (hem of their contents. The more we do, the more we can do: ihe more busy we re, tho more leisure we have."

A more hopeful feeling pervades the whole comtnuniiy here, both of public men and of private observers.

With coulneess and discretion, on i lie part of the pilots, the ship will weather the storm.

We think Ihal, so far as Congress is concerned, the storm has passed. The Supreme Court has adjourned till the first of April. The Amount in the Treasury, on ihe 25:h of February, was 87,273,000. We had a high wind yesterday, which, at 11 o'clock, look oiriheroof, with rafte rs, sheeting, cornice, &c, from Winder's great building, which is occupied by Gov ernment bureaus. Ii is a miracle ihal no one was hurl. A mass uf the roof was carried across the street and narrowly mis sed the south-west corner of the Navy olli ces, cutting down large trees.

To day, Mr. Calhoun occupied his seat in the Senate, and a great crowd was in attendance. Mr. Mason, of Virginia, read his remarks on the exciting subject which is now all ai sorbing, as it involves the very existence of our Union. The deepest attention was paid during the delivery of the address. Mr Calhoun said that the Union was in danger, i'hat ihe cause of the discontent which prevailed was produced by Ihe des truction of the equilibrium between ihe North and the South. The South must be satisfied that she can remain in the Union in safety and peace. The Union could not be caved by Mr. Clay's project, nor by the admission o! California, with ilie provisions incorporated iu ihe proposed Constitution. The Union coulJ be saved by giving ihe South an equal share of the common do minion, and by restoring lo owners fugi tive slaves. The South had no compro mise lo oiler. The question could not be settled unless il was effected, during the present session of Congress; and it was time to dec.de it.

In the year 1813, tins Russel Colvin, living in Manchester, Vermont, suddenly and mysteriously disappeared from ihe town, and his family and (riends not know ing wh-l had become of him, supposed that he had been murdered. Although Colvin was a siran.e man, and had before gore off without notice, yet his long ab sence this time bejot the suspicion of his murder. Afcr Colvin ii.nl been absent six yecTJ two brothers living in Manchester, named Stephen and Jose Hoorn, by some observation4, ailnclie.l suspicion to them selves as the murderer4.

"Di'cause," replied rijnrn, "they say I murdered you." Colvin answered, "you never hurt ine!' The Dooms wer of course pardoned by Ihe Gutvruur and re leasee! fruru custody, l.it as they were not liked in the iiei.hboihood, nu com pen- 'sation was awarded them for the perils and ruinous litigation which they suffered. I The absence of Colvin Was nttribuled to derangement, 0r he did not, and would not recognise his wile, and insisted thai his children were i.i New Jersey, where he imagined he, owned a farm.
