The Auburn Advertiser prints a

Church at White Hirer, Dakota Ter

read thus:
"I fcaid 1 would write again uooa,

A discovery baa lately been made
on au ieLud in tbe Missisippi. w hich
shows tbat tbe Aborgines uf Auien
ica were not wholly uuacquaiuied
with mechanical surgery, but occa
sionally wore wooden legs when de
prived of their natural limbs, la a
subterraneau cave hewn out ot aolid
rock many thousands of years ago,
was found, among other remarkable
articles, a skull as brown as polished
walnut, perfect ia every respect, aud
of extraordinary size, also au almost
complete skeleton with a woodeu leg.
Tbe fastenings of the artificial limb
consisted of petrified leather aud
bronze buckles. Tbe origiual leg ap
pears to have been removed ball
wsy between the hip and the knee.
This discovery is regarded as exceed
ingly interesting, as not only proving
that wooden extremities were fash
ionable in early ages, but that a
knowledge of bronze was among the
learning of the aborigines.

A Baaaaa Baaae(-
The San Francisco Call gives the
following account of tbe recent ban
quet to Senator Sharon: A highly
picturesque banquet was given in
one of the corner suits on tbe first
floor of the Palace Hotel last even
ing. It wasa feast io many reppects
which challenges description. ( The
dinner, as it was modestly designated
on the bills of fare, was given to Wil
liam Sharon, a Uuited States Sena
tor frotj the State of Nevada. Of
the select company which cat down
at the table, more than half tbe num
ber were milliunairs, and tbe otber
half could count their wealth in hun
dreds of thousands of trade dollars.
Ia richness ot viauds, exquisite beau
ty of the floral and other decorations,
table adornments, glitter of silver
ware and essentials of a lavish dis
play of opulence, it is safe to say that
tbe dinner last nitrbt to Senator
Sharon has never been surpassed.
With such an accomplished aud
veteran caterer as Warren Iceland.
the Hotel King of America, it could
not bave teen otherwise.
When tbe banquet was in progress
tbe scene preseuted was one of rare
splendor. Tbe band of tbe florist
bad transformed tbe aparitreut iuto
a bewitching grotto in fairy laud
Upon tbe snowy cloth were arranged
bright flowers in reckless prof u -ion.
while, ming log with fruit, flowers
and wondrous dishes, tbe bright sil
verware glittered in the light of nu
merous gas jets and tbe soft rays of
fifty-four wax candles rising from ra
diant candelabra. Tbe recesses
formed by the bow-windows were
turned into beautiful conservatories,
aod a delicious effect was produced
by placing large mirrors against tbe
windows as a background for tbe
plants. Tbe reflection of tbe foliage
caused tbe windows to appear to ibe
eye as so many entrances to tbe
green-bouses of great depth, thus im
parting tbe borrowed enchantment of
distance to the view. In one win
dow was a little grove of orange
trees and banauna plants; another
was a miniature forest of tropical
palms bending gracefully to the car
pet, aod a third recess was filled
witb ferns of every description, en
rapturing to the vision. The walls
were bung with paintings of figures,
and landscapes, while eighteen cage?,
filled with golden-winged feathered
songsters, were suspended from tbe
ceilings at appropriate intervals.
Mammoth ornamental bronzes of
costly make and vases filled with
palms greeted tbe eye at every turn.
It was in such an apartment tbat Mr.
Sharon's "old friends of tbe Coiu-
stor-k Lode" broke bread with hitu
last night.
Each gentleman seated around the
festive board found, near his napkin,
bill of fare engraved upon a heavy
plate of silver, dug from the Corn-
stock Lode, and highly polished.
These were gotton up in artistic
style at a cost of over $10 each,
measured abou 6x4 J inches, of a I
quarter of a dollar's tbickuess An j
legan' border was engraved on each
side of tbe plate, enclosing tbe read-
ng matter.

In Albany, a few days since, an
old rogue beat a young one, A man
stepped up to a juveoil boot black,
opposite tbe Stanwix, acd had a
"shine." He gave tbe youth a $5
"Hain't got change enough, cap'n,"
said tbe "shiner," displaying about
$2 in shin plasters.
"How much bave you?" asked tbe
"Lemme see," said the br.y. count
ing his money. "Je' $2 50."
"Give me that, and I will wait till
you get change," the etranger re
plied. .
Tbe youth grabbed the $5 bill,
gave his customer tbe $2 50, and as
he 'scooted' he was overheard to fsv
to his chum: "Jim, if I hain't Imck
in a few minutes, tell ibat. 'ere cj
cutuber tbal I have got run over and
smashed finer uor mince meat . lie
hain't much stuck ob! no."
As the boy departed the stranger
told Jim that he would !c in tbe of
fice of tbe Stanwix. across the way
where tbe "shiner' could bring him
bis change.
In a few minutes the boot black
came ruuuiiig back with tbe perspi
ration streaming dow u his face.
'Jiul,' said be to the boy, "where s
ibat 'ere fraudulent dekin? Bust, me
if he baiu'i shoved a 'queer' hill unto
me. 'Tain't worth the paper it's
printed ou,"aud he d-uiced about as
if he had lost a fortune. Jim told
oini that the stranger was at the
Stanwix, but a ten minutes search
failed to reward the youth Tbe
biter that was bit returned to his post
with a down-cast look, and was heard
to sav:
"Jim, tbat 'ere villain must belong
to the Whisky King. He was too

that is not to count uiy chickens agin

partisan of Gen. Taylor, and in rne
of bis speeches boasted tbat be had
been the first man m-the country to

to tbe party and to tbe President.
Gen. Taylor, with small knowledge
of meu, determined to make Preston

legal ability and learning, but all to
no purpose. Tavlor was imniova

be had a brief cut characteristic con
versation with bin) on the subject.
"I hear," be said, ' that you think
of making my friend Pres'on your
Attorney General."
"Yes," replied Taylor, "I do."
"Arc you aware of the fact," con
tinued the Senator, "that an Attor

'Of course," sahl Taylor.
"Do you kn iw that he must there
