go, ami kiing her brow, he gently put
her away from him, and giving one luck
j at his tluky 'little daughter, strode out
into the sunlight and wended his way to
ward the North.
That, so fur aa is known, was the last
JiMipiin Miller ever saw of his tawny
foreat bri.lt . Years pruned away. He
met, wedded and dcMrrted the lady whose
letter in recital of her wrongs, ha made
her as famous in literature as the poet
himself; hut he never again acknowl
edged the Indian woman, who out of tlie
depth of her great love hail borne him a
child. Not a great while ago, tliut little
child, bom in the foreat gloom, came into
his piMHvMoir. How, exactly when or
where, does not appear, but it is still liv
ing and culls Jtaxjuin Miller "Father."
She it now fifteen yean old, and is living
in Son Frnnciaco, supported from the po
et's purse. HJie is described a? strikingly
beautiful. She has her mother's deep,
dark eyes, and wealth of raven hair, and
her father's clear, Caucaasian skin. Her
neighbors call her the beautiful Kjxuiixh
girl, for they know not her romantic his
tory ; but to her own immediate friends
she is known as the poet's gifted child.
It is but justice to Miller to say that
he is exceedingly fond of her, and does
everything iu bis power to make her
happy. He has provided for her educa
tion, and she already shows traces of tliat
genius which has made her father famous
and herself proud and huppy to be culled
his, though Um ohild of love only.
Of her mother nothing is known. The

of a tad, sad face, and a weary, desolate

Of all the bodies of the tparkling fir

geatest interest. It site, together with
its influence which it exert upon our sys
tem, by tending fourth it light and
beat, add intenity to our interest in this
vast ami fiery orb.
It it the great central attractor of our
solar system aronnd which many inferior
workls move in order and unison. Its
diameter it about 880,000 miles, which it
112 time greater than that of the earth ;
and it mass b said to bt- 1,400,000
timet as great And if all the rest of
solar system were united in one body, the
sun would be the greater by fifty timet.
With these facta before tw, wr can have
but little conception of the vastnesa of
this wonderftil orb.
By aid of the telescope, dark spots
have been discovered upon the tun's disc,
which have been a subject of much curi
osity, as well a interest, to the astrono
mers, who still vary in opinion respecting
the nature of lb eat spots. Some suppiaw
them to be "top of jnouutaint 00 the
sun's turfuoe laid bare by the fluctations
in hit luminous atmosphere j such is the
opuiioa or lauande. Prof. Y Uaott, of
Olasgow, also suggest that they may be
vast excavations in the luminous Blatter
of the sun." But the true phpsieal nature
of the phenomena is still rather uncer
tain. One thing it rather peculiar rela
tive to these sputa, which ia this : They
vary in site and number at different
It is said tliat from the year 1611 to
1629 the tun was known to be clear of
spots, exoept for a few days in December,
1G24. Prof.. Olmsted ttatat that
even a hundred are sometimes visible ;
but at other timet noue ar to b teen
whatever. Such waa tlie case between
the year of 1678 aad 164.
It is said, too, tliat the spots have been
known to break into pieces and disapsar
in a verysuWt time ialao that they ofteu
break out again in tlie same place, and
often in placet when noue were ever seen
before. It it suited that they have been
seen with the naked eye, aad, according
to Dr. Dick, such spot must have been
50,000 mile in diameter.
But very I! ille it known respecting the
physical nature of the suu. When it is
viewed through a teleeo it apiean to
be a mass of burning liquid, in a state of
violent ebullitiou. It was believed by
LaPltu to be in a state of actual eont
bustion, the spots hfing immense eavern

three or four hot mustard water foot
baths, and every now and then, when
drink ia wanted, change the pliiin cokl
water for toast water, plain black cold
tea, or thin, very thin, cold oat-mcal
gruel ia which there ia no butter. Which
ever of these the patient prefers give him
till he tire of it. The gruel is the most
strengthening. Between these give him
sips of eokl beef tea with a pinch of alt
in it, or chicken tea. If he fs.ll asleep

potato, aa apple, etc. The moment the

but carefully, in small quantities. At a
general rule, though the patient sUrtt to
eat tbis with avidity, a few bite or sips
will satisfy him, and h pushes it away.
Sure recovery haa now set in, and th
only care thereafter is to keep the patient
cleanly and moderate in his eating aud
To prevent itching and pitting : As
anon a the pustule begin to fill up pat
them with a small cloth dipped repeat
edly ia barley water, and then anoint
them well with tweet oil plied by
meant of a stout feather. In case of
children, inclose the hands and forearm
in old, soft, but ttrong linen or muslin
bags well oiled. Don't be afraid of the
bed-clothes, for they are generally de
stroyed. At to what are termed disinfectant, if
I could not obtain hronio-chloraium, or
some other odorless disinfectant, I would
not use any at all. Carbolic acid and
chlia-ide of lime, the rmait commonly
used, are far more nauseating than the
smell of the small pox itself. I firmly
believe that more pe- pie died of carbolic
acid in Philadelphia aere last winter than
of small-pox.
From the moment of attack the room
should be kept dark, and morning and
Bight it sliouid be thoroughly ventilated,
the patient being covered completely over
with the bed-ekJis, w' ile the window
and door are opened for at least ten
minute each time.
Now, sir, I v ould tike to hive all who
may follow this advice report the result
to you for publication ; for I fuel certain
that if the people can once be taught to
lose this cowardly fear of iinnll-pux, pa
tient will receive proper nursing, and,
getting that, tb filial ease will bt re
duced to at low an average at that of any
ordinary ailment of which man, in the
course of nature, must at tome time die.
