The Government having made no appro

troops, provisions have only been, made for
the camel herders. This is one of the best
Xmstng localities for these distinguished for

o"f them speak highly of them. They look

We, of the First Infantry, bad quite a stir
ring time of it last month daring the Cottinas
Invasion. We were ordered to march to San
Antonio a'ad from thenoe to Brownsville, but
on our an.ival at the former town, the order
was eousitermanded, after making a forced
march of tixty-Jivt milet in two day:
We aowmplished our task twenty-four hours
less than tb.e cavalry who were ordered on
the sarae expedition. We enjoyed fine weather
daring ouv march from the camp to San An
toaia; bu t on our return we were greatly har
rassed b'y rain, which came down in torrents,
filling Greeks and rivers with extremely dirty
water, lnd making the roads almost impasia
ble. . , , . . ,. ,,.
Sir ,oe the Sd inst. we have had some real
wlnt er weather, impressing the idea upon us
tha'; we were in the Arotio regions, and not in
th regions of Texas. The thermometer va
ri ed from 8 deg. to 25 deg. above aero, which
i s doing pretty well for this country. We had.
I alternately, snow; rain and . sleet, to such an
extent that the oldest settler in the neighbor
uuuusaiu it, was me ooiaest weather Known
here for a number of years. '
A scout of ten or twenty men have just
been ordered on the trail of some Indians who,
ia the absence of Mr. Oloui and family from
their ranch, some , fifteen miles from here,
robbed the plaoe of everything that could be
carried or driven away.' It was very fortu
nate that none was home at the time of the
descent, as in all probability they would hare
been murdered. The scouting party, com
posed of ten men, started, acoompanied by
guide named Pholy, and a cititen, and were
successful in overtaking the Indian maraud
ers, numbering nine or ten, on the 15th, about
sundown. They surprised them and suc
ceeded in killing on and wounding two, and
iuu& au tueir nrearms ana tne scalp of the slain
Indian, whioh was decorated with different
kinds of white persons' hair. The troops bad
to dismount and crawl several hundred yards
in a oedar brake. The suocess of the scouting
party reflects credit upon the guide and the
men who belong to Company I, Second Cav

Extraordinary Criv in Frakor. A trial
has taken place at Tours, in France, of a
mother and daughter named Lemoine, the
oharge against them being the burning to
death of the newly-born illegitimate ohild of
M'lle Lemoine. The father was the eoaohman
in Madame Lemoine's service, a young man
named Fetis. The Court was each day
crowded to exoess, the prinoipal inhabitants of
the neighboring country being present, and
the Prefect of the department and the princi
pal functionaries having seats in Court.
M'lle Lemoine is described as ratber below
the middle siie, with line eyes and good color.
She was dressed In black, and at first hid her
face with hor pocket handkerchief, shedding
tears. " Madame Lemoine has also, it is said,
fine, eyes, a high forehead, regular features
and black hair.
After listening to the summing up of the
counsel for defense and prosecution, the jury
retired, and in half an hour returned with a
verdict of guilty against the mother, but with
extenuating cirouirmtances; and of acquittal
of tbe daughter. The Court condemned the
mother to twenty years' hard labor.
Tbi Oman Teimikq with Lobsters. The
captain of the, olippar Daring, whioh vessel
arrived at San Francisco from New York, re
ports that when in latitude 23 23 8., long. 130
W., he passed through a sea of diminutive
lobsters, perfeot in shape, and in all respects
the miniature counterpart of the larger crui
taceous inhabitants of the bays and shallow
waters of the Atlantic coast. , From 1 o'clotk
in the afternoon, when the ship first oame t,p
with them, until long after it wag dark, slio
sailed literally through a sea of little lobsters.
The surface of the ocean was covered, and
seemed to spawn and crinkle with their inces
sant moving. As far down as the eye could
reach, as the ship slowly plowed them aside,
they were seen struggling and. clawing to the
tune of millions. ,

- A Nkro-Liki Schoolmaster. A German
msgaiine recently announced the death of a
sohoolmaster in Suabia, who, for fifty-one
years, had superintended a large institution
with old-fashioned severity. From an aver
age, inferred by means of recorded observa
tions, one of the ushers had caloulated that,
in tbe course of his exertions, be had given
911,500 canines, 121,000 floggings, 209,000
custodes, 136,000 tips with the ruler, 10,200
boxes on the ear and 22,700 tasks by heart.
It was further calculated that he had made
7Q0 boys, stand on peas, 6,000 kneel on the
sharp edge of wood, 5,000 wear the fool's cap,
and 1,700 hold the rod. How vast the quan
tity of human misery inflicted by a single

How the Thistle Saved Scotia. The fol
lowing is related as the origin of the use of
tbe thistle as the national emblem of Scotland:
"When the Danes invaded Scotland thoy
availed themselves of the pitch darkness of
night to attajk the Scottish forces unawares.
In approaohing the Scottish foroes unobserved,
and marohing barefooted to prevent their
tramp being heard, one of the Danes trod upon
a large prickly thistle, and the sharp cry of
pain which he instinotly uttered suddenly
apprised the Scots of their danger, who imme
diately ran to their arms, and defeated the foe
with great slaughter. The thistle was thence
forward adopted as the national insignia of

' Core or Rheumatism A writer In the
Medical Timet recommends sulphur as highly
etfioaoious in tha treatment of rheumatism.
He orders the whole of the affected limb to be
encased in flannel, thickly sprinkled with
precipitated sulphur; a bandage applied over
tnis, and tne whole covered witn oil silk or
gutta percha, whioh has the efleot of increas
ing the warmth and confining the vapor of the
sulphur, and also obviating the odor.

Thi Victoria Bbime. The estimated cost
of tbe Viotorla Bridge at Montreal was one
million five hundred thousand pounds sterl
ing. But its aotual oost was only one million
three hundred thousand pounds sterling, or
one million two hundred ' thousand dollars
less than the estimates. Another striking
fact is that the bridge was done within the
time originally estimated. The American
world can show no parallel to this.

WASHINGTON, January 7.
8ente not In session.
HOUSE-Mr. Cobb asked that an article
eminating from Massachusetts be read,, whioh
be would like to know from the delegation in
that State whether it was a forgery or not
It appeared in tbe Barnstable Patriot, (torn
tbe East, where the sun first rises on our
globe. , '
If it be genuine, he was glad that after
hunting among rubbish, he had been able to
find in Massachusetts a single, jewel whioh
nould be Bhown to the country. The proceed
ings of the Union Meeting in Barnstable were
read, declaring the duty of obedience to the
Constitution as the supreme law of the land,
condemning Brown's raid and his sympathi
zers, and those preaching or inciting insur
rection were guilty of moral or aotual
treason, Ac.
Mr. Elliott asked that tbe call for the meet
ing be read. : . , . . , .
Mr. Cobb said that it was not in the paper.
He loved Union meetings, and he wanted them
to declare such sentimonts as had been read,
lie believed that many Abolitionists ware sim
ply for the Union. Let tbe motto be the Con
stitution and tbe rights of all sections, and
let them inscribe on their banners "Hoe Signo
Ki'ncel," then by this sign "we'll conquer."
Mr. Elliott remarked that Mr. Cobb did not
say anything new of Massachusetts or to tbe
citizens of the State. . There were not more
constitutional or conservative constituencies
anywhere. From th.9 landlog of the Pil
grims till this there never was a body of men
who more assuredly, direotly or promptly stood
by the, laws and Constitution, and ever right,
than these samo men wbo met together at Barn
stable the other day to proclaim their alle
giance to the Union and laws. The men who
dissented from tbe spirit of these resolutions
are the men who would be found standing aide
by side with the sectionaliits and disunionists
of the South.
They were not the Republicans nor order
loving Demoorats, but another class of men
altogether. One gentleman who addressed
that meeting was a Bepubiican,and bis hearers
sympathized with his sentiments there de
clared. We have, he said, heard more terse
than ohaste, more Btroug than parliamentary,
more vigorous than oourteouB denunciation
after denunciation against those who oome
from the North, representing tho feelings and
principles of the North as ombodied in the
resolutions just read. T'-,a time is not far dis
tant when tbe eooptvr will slip from the hands
wbic'u bold it, and pass to other and stronger
bunds, and then we hope we will find onr
Union-loving friends shaking h.inds with the
new party that will have the powor.
