The UnKiiae of the ChiukagawH, Choc taws, Cherokee!, Muscogeei, nnd all the tribes of the Algonquin race, to which they belonged, were very eupho nious; and the nuineg which they gave to the streams of the South were so beau tiful that it is to be regretted they have not been retained. Many of those which are generally supposed to be aboriginal, have been so changed that they bear but little resemblance to the originals. In the mp of .loutel, the Lieutenant -f U Salle, the discoverer of Texas, appended to his work: "The expedition of La Salle," published in 1CH8, the Missicsippi river is spelled Mechasipi, which pro nounced in French would be Ma-chub-see-pee. In the inupofCapt. John Smith, the lirst explorer of the Chesapeake Buy, and which was published in 1007, the Potomac is called Pat-ta-wo-ineck ; nnd the Siisqiiehanah, Sbs sas que han-imgh. The Indian name of the TomhigheH is Ilti-oiii-beei-ik-a-bee. But before I proceed further I must give my authority for what 1 shall say upon a subject which will be interest ing only to Ethnologists and Antiqua rians. In 1838 I was Draughtsman in the Land OBice in Pontotoc and bad orders to make a map of the Chickasaw lands and their connections with those rfthe ChocUws, for the General Land Office ia Washington City. The map was a large one, and included every river and creek in North Mississippi. Disgusted with the names given by uneducated settlers to the streams, and with the clas sical but inappropriate nomenclature applied to them by acholarg with the Tibers, Bear rivers, Mud and Goose creeks, and the Homes, Carthages, Ath ena and Spartas upon their banks; and thinking that, the Indian names were much better, hoping loo that I might save something of a beautiful language which will be Tost with the extinction of a warlike race rapidly passing awsy, I determined to fix the names they gave to them upon my map, which was sent to Washington; and which I suppose is now in the General Land Office among the archives of the United States Gov ernment. I was aided in the work by the chiefs of the Chickasaws, and some excellent interpreters, and also by a vocabulary of the language prepared by the Presbyterian Missionaries, who translated the Bible into Chickasaw. Very valuable assistance was given me by the Rev. Mr. Stewart, thea a mission ary, and who had lived many years among tbem. I will give yon few of these names as well as I can spell them with English letters. I found it impossi ble to express by our alphabet some of the sounds of Chickasaw and Choctaw languages. I must first call your atten tion to the fact that no Indian can sound our letter K. The L is always substi tuted for it. They pronounce Cherokee Chel-lokee, Cyrus, Si-lus, and Christ, Mist spell niaisi in ineir iraaiauuu of the Bible. O-kah, means water. The ah ii usually omitted before another syllable, whether it begins with a vow I or a consonant, as in O-onee or Ok-o-nee, and Ok-mulgee, Hatch-ah means little river; and Ok hin-ab a great river, or bath of waters. All the names on our maps with O or Ok, or hatchee, attached to them, are of streams with traces of Indiaa names. I will not weary you with any further philo-logical discussion ; but will give you the correct aboriginal names of a few of our stream with their translations. , Thi MisstssifPL The Chickasaws had no such name in their language; bnt ealled it Ok-hin-nah the path of waters. Joutel says the Indians en the west side of it called it Me-cha-sipi; but be did not give the translation ef it; and aone of the Chickasaws with whom I conversed knew its meaning. "The father of wa ters" may possibly be its translation; but lean find no authority for it Tag Tkxxesske. This may be a Cherokee word. The Chickasaws called it Chel-lo-kee-Ok hin nah, or the Great - . -. . - - - ' - " - MEMPHIS. TENNESSEE, THURSDAY EVENING. JUNE 1 1. Hiver of the Cherokees, who occupied its valleys. Some of tbftir names were very appro priate, as that which they gave to the Yazoo, which is a pure Chicicasaw word, and means "Old ruins." The Choctaw and Chickasaws three hundred years ago were one tribe; and their languages are the same, except In those words which have been introduced since their separation into two nntions, and by the necessity of giving new names to new articles, such as horses, cows, gun-powder, books and other things brought amotig thorn by white people and the different parts of speech, derived from such nouua. These Indians would call the ruins of Babylon, Thebes, or Palen que, Yazoo. Yazoo Ok-hin-nah, means the river of old ruins; and was so called from the immense number of tumuli upon iu banks; the remains of the edifices, tem ...ml.. f..t;fif.twma ifa nnonle ll' 0 HJUIUD " .... -- who have perished in past ages, and of I .1 n V....w.! ..u innv n fit h. wnuiu uur muuciiiBuwiiftiiivn " " ing, and whose works they say they found as we now see them. I only assert what the Chickasaws told me. I think their ancestors destroyed them as they have some dim traditions of former wars waged by them with enemies whom they vanquished but whose names are lost - ...

It is a striking fact that the number of young men prominently connected wnn the New York press as writers, is greater now than at any former period. Although the editors-in-chief of several of the lead AnnAlitn iniirnala are veterans. yet the chief editorial work of these journals IS uunr ujr mcu ucmrr.. years of twenty-five and forty. William Cullen Bryanu idles when he pleases, leaving Charles Nordhoff and Augustus Maverick to edit the Evening Pott. Hor ace Greeley is like a father among sons In the Tribune office. It is true, Sidney r... lately th manaffinir editor of that journal, is on the shndy side of life, yet he nas just gone on w me vr nue Mountains in search of the lost sunshine, leaving John Russell Young to be his brilliant successor. George Ripley, the ripe literary oritie, is on a wedding tour in Europe, leaving his pen to Mr. Hassard. Geo. W. Smalley, who a few years ago was rowing boat-races for the glory of Yale College, and who first made his literary reputatiou by bis mas terly report in the Trihvne, of the bittle of Antietam, is already one of the ablest writers, as he is one of the noblest men, collected with the American press. Then, too, in the same office, are Clarance Cook, waging war against all bad pictures and some good; Edwin II. House and William Winter, dramatic critics ; Nathan Urner and Kane O'Don nel, comparatively new arrivals in Go tham ; Albert D. Richardson and Jun ius H. Brown, who came very near being made old by Castle Thnnder and Salis bury prison ; and Professor Schem, who would have been young enough to men tion if this article had been written ten years ago. The Times, in the absence of Henry J. Raymond (who is just find ing out how much less influential his congressional chairis than his editorial), is conducted by Franklin J. Ottarson, a gentleman who, we beliove, is never re membered to have been young, but who is the kiudect of editors to juvenile ap plicants with manuscripts; for we hap pen to kuow of a youngster whose tir.st pif-ce of newspaper wriiiug w;is accepted and printed by Mr. Otturson, then city editor of the Tribune. But all the rest of the Timen men, we believe, are young Stillmaii S. Coiiiint, the two tiwiiitons. Edward Seymour, Henry J. Winscr, and the rest though we believe we ought to except Mr. Morrisan. Iu the Herald, James Gordon Bennett, Junior, is learning his father's trade of newspa- na.mu.iairnm.iil- lillt WA ATI linttllle tO say whether or not his youthful pen is yet compelent master of that elegant and Addisonian English wherewith the editorials of the Herald so charm the AorM American Iteview. Mauton Mkr ble, chief edilor of The World, is a gen tleman whoso politics are very bad, but whose editorship is very able. George William Curtis, the editorial writer of Harper' Weekly, is not the youngest ol young men; but we trust the years will be many before he shall grow old. The Nation is edited bv H. L. GoJkin and Wendell Phillips Garrison both young men. Mr. Sweetser, of the Hound Tahte, we take to be a rather oldish and mel lowed man, judging from the sweet-tem pered, humane, aud serene tone with which hia columns usually reier to nis editorial neighbors. As to Buyard Tay I... I:l,. rA U Stswl.lanl Grant White. and Joseph Barber, we are a little doubt ful of their nges but we give iUm tt, Ksm.fi nf ihp ilimlil. Edmund C.

Bulletin tells the following story of the renowned Davy Crockett : One of our oldest citizens, a disting uished soldier, and one who has repre sented this wealthy and intelligent coun ty in the halls of legislation, tells the following practical joke as perpetrated in this place many years ago by the il lustrious backwoodsman and Tennessee pioneer.

On one occasion Crockelt came into the store, and, as usual, de sired to trade coon skins for whiskey. The proprietor of the store struck a trade with him, and was to fill a quart bottle with his best "corn" for each akin. Crockett threw the coon's outer garment upon the counter, aud the tradesman picked it up and dashed it into the loft overheud, the usual place for depositing skins and pefries, and then stooped down ir, ilnw tbo "tin. wuter." While his back was turned, Crockett thrust the ramrod of his old rilie through a crack in the floor of the loft and drew the skin down. The gentleman handed him the whiskey and he retired to a vacant lot near by, with a party of friends, and exhausted its con tents. In a few moments he entered the store again and had the bottle filled, de posited a coon skin, and in turn drew another from the loft, retired and drank to the health and prosperity of his thrifty merchant, and repeated the trick as .!...:.. ikn itnv au )ia rli.inrOff In OIICII utliii'g m .... ... the evening when he and his party were somewnai merry, ue waiiteu unu iuc mum ., .1 al.AJ , 1. n ...arr.ltnnt Iiaw mnnv ftkinfl mm nci . ii i .iji.i ......... ....... j .- he had bought from him lhat trip, and was told " seventeen !"

Hovel Impression. In some extended remarks upon the Congressional scheme of reconstruction, the National Intelligencer of the 28lh of May says : The idea of a whole people becoming active in their own didfraneh'iHenietit is one of novel impression. That the South ern people would submit to any laws im posed upon tbem is natural enough, for that is the fate of the vanquished; but to expect them to be parties to their own degradation is asking too much of human nature. When I hey abolished slavery, o,l nui-Cnrtnoit lite other acts then re quired, they believed they would be ad mitted to the exercise 01 ineir pouurui rights. They have no certain assurance that if the new terms imposed upon them were carried out by them they would then be permitted to enjoy the promised priy Tn avurv tinint. nf view. then, it was obvious that this disfranchisement of the Southern people would not be adopted, and the constitutional amend ment, therulore, would not become apart nf ,Y,a ..rtini.. lfiw TImm nmfrr&mmn. then, must have been gotten up on the . . .
