The mammoth cave is about 125 miles from l.exington, Oil from Ixuisville, and 94 from Nashville. The entrance to thin nether terri tory ia among the Knobs, and about four hun dred yards from Green river. The Knobs are a range of hills which border the extensive country called "the Barrens," a sort of high land prairies, which, when I was there, in l-tl3 and 161 1, were destitute of timber. Since the country has become more thickly settled, and the fires prevented from burning over the grass annually, the oak, hickory and chesnut, have sprung up in abundance, and it bus now become a young timbered country. Thut this cave has been inhabited at an early period, there is most conclusive evidence; but by a people, probubly who have now no blood run ning in human veins. I saw and examined a human body in that cave in 1313, and an ex tensive wardrobe which was deposited with it; and have now an inventory taken on the spot The body was that of a woman ; height al lowed to be about five feet, ten inches. It was found in a sitting position in the short cave, in a hole about three feet square, in the earth which overlaid its bottom. Over this hole was laid a flat rock. The wrists had a cord tied around them, and were folded over the breast; the knees were tied up to the wrists. Around the body, were wrapped two half dressed deer skins, .shaved ; and on these were drawn in white, vines and leaves. Outside of these skins was & sheet near two yards square ; and at the feet lay a pair of moccasins, and a handsome knapsack, well filled. Its contents were as follows: viz. seven head dresses, made of the feathers or quilts of rooks and eagles, put together in the way feather fans are made ; these being placed on the head, were fastened by the cords tied back of the head, presenting a front of erect feathers, ex tending from car to ear a head-dress, truly elegant the jaw of a bear, with a string or cord through it to wear pendant from the neck, the claw of an eagle in the same style, several fawns' red hoofs strung on a cord like beads to wear around the neck, about two hundred strings of beads, of seeds which grows in the bottom lands in that country, and rather smaller than hemp seed, -two whistles tied together, about six inches long, made of cane with a joint aboutone-third the length, with an opening of tViree-fourthsof a inch extending on each side ot the joint, in which was a slit reed, two large rattle 6nakes' skins, one having on it fourteen rattles, six needles, some of horn and others of bone ; these were smoulh, show ing that they had beon much used. The nee dles were from Ave to seven inches long, and Lad head, ftuito of which were scolloiuwi others were crooked like a sa.l needle, BmJ without . thumb-niece of the drel deer skin t wear on the hand, I presume, from an examination of this with the needles, that it was used in needle work to protect the hand, in fhe same way that thimbles are now used to protect tho finger. A roll of vegetable paints or colors in leaven; a bank of deer's sinewy f tewing, like cutjut; a mall pared of two-corded and three-corded thread, re sembling seine twine; a reticule in the shape of a horseman's valise, made to open at the top lengthwise, with loops on ench side, and two cords fastened at one end run through these loops, and laced it up very nicely. It was a handsome pattern, and I thought a very in genious piece of work. Tho articles I have here enumerated constituted the entire ward rohe. The sheet, moccasins, knapsack, reti cule, cords, thread and twine, were made of wrought bark; and the manner of putting to pether was like being wove and knit. The knapsack had a double border to work to the depth of three inches, which gave it additional Ftrcngth. I do not think? Ihnt tho workmanship of these articles surpassed what I have met with in various Indian tribes ; hut of the style of the articles, everything bore the stamp ot peculiarity, which I have never met with any where else. The Ixxly of this woman was preserved by the flesh drying on the bones; the atmosphere of the cave being so dry and unchangeable, that animal decomposition cannot go on. - The hair was of a reddish cast, and not more than a quarter of an inch in length. The teeth were sound and much worn ; the features regular and well proportioned. Njar the back bone and between the ribs there hnd been a wound. At the time this body remained at the cave, the cave was own d by Myman Gratz, F.sq. of Philadelphia, and Charles Wilkinson, Esq of Lexington, Ky, brother of the. late minister to Russia of that name. Mr. Wilkins presented toa Mr. Ward, of Massachusetts, for the use, I believe, of the Historical Society of that State, the body and the wardrobe. How long this body remained there, those who read this account of it can judge as well os I, who saw it The equal and unchanging temperature of the cave is a matter of greot interest. - The Green river is now navigable for steamboats from its mouth to the cave ; it can be visited as a tour of plcasute, instead of labor. I expect shortly to receive a bottle of pure water from the mammoth cave. This rich fluid exists there so pure, that it is as transparent as air; and having reposed in its basin for ages, all earthly particles which it ever held in sus pension were lonff since precipitated. The river within the cave rises to the height of from 31) to 40 feet perpendicular. The sup posed lake is only an expansion of the river There are but few varieties offish in the cave; the catfish is the most abundant; and is per feelly while and destitute of eyes. One of the laws of sensation is verified as it respects the fish ; viz. that the ! of one sense increases the vigor andacutencss of the others. The fish are regardless of the greatest degree of light; but the least agitation of the water a larms them. Hence the difficulty ot catching them. One of the fish without eyes waj dis sected at the Somerville Institute, .and it was ascertained that no such organ as the cyea be longed to its head. One of the rivers the third and largest, is called Kcho river, from the extraordinory ech' oes heard on its waters. It is literally deaf ening. Messrs. Craig and Patten took sound ingsinthe river, and ascertained tho average depth to be eight feet. Sulphate of lime is found in the main cave, two miles from its mouth. It is also to be seen in some of the o ther branches. Glauber salts is found in that portion of the cave called 'Salts Jfoom.' K- som salts is found in large quantities in the cave, and in different parts of it IJtrgo piles of it are seen in Cleveland's avenue, beautifully crystalizcd. During the month of August, 111, Messrs, Craig and Patten spent two weeks at the cave, during a greater partof which time they were making explorations beyond the river The most interesting discovery which they made was Cleveland's avenue ; named in hoiv- or tif Professor Cleveland, of Bowdoin college It averages 70 feet in width, and 12 to l"i feet iu height, and two miles in length. The ground 011 which) on walk, as well as tho aides and ceiling of this avenue are incrusted with every variety of formation, and generally pefectly white. 11 is truly a beautiful, a georgeous spectacle. Visitors who have but hull' ado zen lamps can form but an imperfect idea of this splendid avenue. They see it only in de tached parts, and can only admire those singa larly handsome formations pendent from the ceiling. It is only when illuminated at differ ent points with the Bengal lights, by means of which you can have an extensive survey o the entire scene, that you can properly a ppre- j ciate the Fplendor of this avenue.-When thus ' niinatedt a spectacle is exh.b.ted to your view which for brilliancy has perhaps no parallel, and which it is impossible for lan guage to describe. lfyou want knowledge read the newspapers ; not merely one, but several: when bufciiiess presses, be diligent; when vif ecolds yoti, hold your tongue. From the New World. nrformtns; a AVtfr. Mynheer Van Per , who in, in 17110, lived in high style, on, Keizar Graht, in Am sterdam, had a very pretty wife, who dressed most extravagantly, played high, gave expen sive routs, and showed every disposition to pquander money as fast as her husband gained Mie was young, handsome, vain and giddy, and completely the slave of fashion. Her hus band had not the politeness to allow, himself to be ruined by her unfeeling folly and dissipation. He complained of her conduct to her parents and nearest relations, whose ndvice was of no more use than his own. Next he had recource to a respectable minister of the Lutheran church, who might as well have preached to the dead. It was in vain to deny her money. for no tradesman would refuse to credit the elegant, the facinating wife of the rich Van dcr Involved as the young lady was in the vortex of fashionable dissipation, she had not yet ruined her health and reputation; and her husband, by the advice of his friend M k r, determined to send her for some months to a Verbatering Unison, or House for the reforma tion of manners, such as is to be found in most of the towns in Holland. With the utmost secrecy, he laid before the municipal authori ties the most complete proofs of her wasteful extravagance and incorrigible levity ; adding to which, she had recently attached herself to ga ming with French officers of rank, who lay un- derail imputation of being remarkably expert in levying contributions. She wasalready in debt upwards of thirty thousand florins to tradesmen, ! though her husband allowed her to take from his cashier a stipulated sum every month, which was more than sufficient to meet the current expenses of his household, while, to meet a loss which occurred in play, her finest jewels were deposited in the hands of a greedy money-lender, who accommodated the necessitous upon unexceptionable security being previously left in his custody. The husband was full twenty years older than his volatile wife, of whom he was rationlly fond, and at whose reformation he aimed before she should be too far carried away by the stream of fashionable dissipation. Against his will, she had agreed to make one of a party of ladies who were invited to a grand ball and supper of woman of rank and faded character. Her huslmnd, at breakfast told her she must change her course of lite, or her extravagance w ould make him a bankrupt, and herchildcrn beggars. "She certainly had been a little too thoughtless, and would soon commence a thorough reforma tion." "You must commence to-day," said her huslmnd ; "and as a proof of your sincerity, 1 entreat you to drop the company of , and to spend the evening at homo this day with me and your children." Quite impossible, my dear sir," said the gid dy wife, in reply ; "I have given my word, and cannot break it" "Then," said her husband, "if you go out this day, dressed to meet the par ty, rcmemlier, for the next six mouths these doors will be barred against your return ; are you still resolved to go !" "Yes," said the in dignant lady, "if they were to be ever barred . against me!" Without either anger or malice, Mynheer Vander told her "not to deceive herself, for as certain as that was her determi nation, so sure would she find her foretelling verified," She told him, 'if nothing else had power to induce her to go, it would be his men aces.' 'With this they parted the husband to pre pare the penitentiary chamber for his giddy young wife, and the lutter to eclipse every rival at the ball that evening. Toafford her a last chance of avoiding an ingnominy wich it pain ed him to inflict he went once more to try to wean her from her imprudent courses, and proposed to set off that evening for Zul phen, where her mother dwelt ; hut ho found her sullen, ami busied with milliners ui.d dress makers, and all the paraphernalia of splendid attire. At the appointed hour the coach drove to the door, and the beautiful woman, (full-dressed, or rather undressed) tripied gaily down stairs, and stepping lightly into the conch, told the driver to stop at , on the KcizurCraht. It was then dark, and she was a little surprised to find the coach had nssed one of the city gates ; the sound of a clock awoke her as from a dream. She pulled the check-string, but the driver kept on ; she then called out, when some one behind the coach told her, in a sup pressed voice, that 'she was a prisoner, and must keep still. The shock wis severe; she trembled in every limb, and was near fainting with terror and alarm, when the coach entered the gates of a Perbatering Huisen, where s!.e was doomed to tako up her residence. The matron of tho house, a grave, severe, yet well-bred person, opened the door, and cal- ling her by name, . requested her to alight, 'Where am I? I beseech you tell me ; and why am I brought here !' You w ill be informed of everything, mndiim, if you will please to walk iu door' Where is my husband 1' she said, in wild affright ; 'sure ho will not let me I be murdered V 'It was your husband who , drove you hither, madam ; he in now upon the coach lox.' This ititilligence was conclusive ; all her assurance forsook her; she submitted to Ire conducted into the house, and sat pale, mntc and trembling, her face and dress exhibited the most striking contrast The husband, deeply affected, first spoke. He told her 'that he had no other means to save her from ruin, and he trusted the remedy would bo efll'etnal ; and that when she quitted that retrent, she would be worthy of his esteem.' Shethen essayed, by j the humblest protestaTions by tears and entrea- ; ties, to be permitted to return, and vowed that nevermore whilst she. lived would she' offend him. 'Save me,' said she, 'the mortification of the punishment, and my future conduct shall ' prove the sincerity of my reformation; Not to . let her off too soon, she was shown her desli- ncd apartment & dress, the rules of the house, and the order for her confinement, during six months! She was completely overpowered with terror, and fell senseless on the floor. When she ret overed, she found her husband chafing her temples, expresing the utmost anx iety for her safety. 'I have b"en unworthy your affection,' said tho faint penitent, 'but spare me this ignominious fate ; take me back to your home, and never more shall yoti have cause to reproach me.' Her husband, who loved her with unabated affection, notwithstanding her le vity, at last relented, and the same conch drove her back to her home, where not one of the domestics (a trusty man-servant excepted) had the least suspicr-Mi of whnt had occurred. As soon as her btislmnd led her to her apartments, she dropped on her knees, and implored his par don : told him the extrnt of all her debts, beg ged him to take her to .titphen for a few weeks, and promised so to reduce her expendi tures, a to make god the sums she had so in considerately thrown away. Allowing for the excessive terror she felt, when, instead uf being driven to 's route, she was proceeding round the ramparts outside of the city gates, which she could not wholly overcome, shespent the happiest evening of her life with her hus baixl ; and from that day alndoned her for mer careerof dissipated folly, and became all that her husband wished a good wife and an affectionate mother. (Jot Hit. The Philadelphia Kxpress states that a gentleman in Philadelphia who had his pockets picked at the Post Office, procured a small snapping turtle, which bestowed away, head upwards, in the ncket of his long tail bl;ie, and thus provided, went to the scene of his for mer misadventure to take out a letter. 'While standing in the crowd, awaiting his turn, he felt a nibble,' as the fishermen call it, and knew thereby that some light lingered gentleman had mittaken the young reptile for a pocket wallet Our friend enjoyed a qiiiet laugh to himself, and suffered the business to proceed.
