Hans Getter WM a wealthy old Dntch man, whoso broad acres of field, wood land and meadow are now partly covered by the compact Mocks of Brooklyn or the village lots of Flatbuah, L. I. 'They had descended to him, in the third" or fourth remove, from the ancestor who first cleared and tilled them, and there ho was living in all the rude and .sump tuous plenty of the thrifty Hollanders in and around New York and along the Hudson, whom Irving has so pleasantly immortalized. His numerous barns were bursting with the products of his golden harvest ; his stalls and Kin d ranges housed the choicest breeds of cattle, shoe) and horses then known ; while his house, broad liko its matter, rather than lofty, was atuffed from attic to collar with every commodity that ould contribute to the comfort and respectability of the portly and case loving proprietor. Servants, stewards and helpers he had in abundance, so that his personal participation in the management of his affairs wits mostly 'onfincd to their general supervision nd the care of his income. This afford ed him abundant leisure for the indulg ence of his pipe and that dreamy inac tion which is the paradise of all fat Dutchmen. Besides his wife a fair, rotund, fresh-looking woman two children, a son and a daughter, both Alllta, aided in the business of farm and household ; while their position and prospects thrust them into prominence as specimens of the rustic nobility oi the times. Iu the squat old mansion, with its broad verandas, hospitality reigned supreme ; all the festivals and holidays of the old country were duly observed; the dominie and the school master were often and ever welcome guests ; and during the autumn and winter months, at the harvest-homo and hnsking-bees, the promises were the focus of luxuriant cheer and good times generally. Our story takes us to the opening of the American Revolution. Bunker Hill had been fought, and the British, driven from Boston, weir concentrating their forces to capture and occupy New York and its vicinity. As the quarrel with the mother country progressed, men were compelled to avow partiality for one parly or the other with more pro nounced distinctness. Hans Getter's leaning, duringthe preliminary troubles, had been toward the colonial side ; but being constitutionally sluggish and timid, he would have greatly proforred to remain a non-combatant and to have his territory considered neutral ground, supplying either belligerant, or both, for a proper consideration. The pros poct of trouble which threatened his quiet annoyed him extremely, and as the cloud of war neared his own locality, the incident confusion made a chaos of his restful ideas and threw him into a condition noticeable in some persons over a burning dwelling. Compelled to think and act rapidly, he became bewildered, lost all presence of mind, and finally tottered on the verge of insanity. But wo are anticipating a little. ' While the Continental army lay in his neighborhood, and in purtial occupancy of his farm, Huns, though sorely grieved at the unavoidable disturbance of his ease, hud passed as a sympathizer with the colonial cause and had contributed to the coinmiiajy stores, not so much for the love of the paper currency tendered in exchange, as because he could not help it. No military rules could prevent countless petty vexations by an armed host encamped on and around him. Btit he was not treated as an enemy, nor was the sanctity of his household openly vio lated. His paramount concern was for the safety of a ceatain earthen crock the treasury of his annual revenues when turned into gold coin which had always been kept i:i a secret nook in his cellar, accessible only tohirascli, There were no banks in which to deposit it ; or stock companies in which to invest it, and of landed estate bo bad all he eared for. And so his hoard had con tinued increasing, until Plata orsotnc wherewith to restock the farm to a limited extent, the son, who now as sumed control of affairs, made a push for the revival of better days.

He had enough ; li heirs must look after the peopVi employment of what he iliight leave them. What would you more? But matters changed for the worse when the British ships of war appeared off the island, threatening invasion and another kind of occupants. Visions of devastation leered from the smoke of his pipe and troubled his slumbers. As he pondered the subject, his anxiety deepened into chronic dejection jojp appetite dwindled; Jus davs v ful, his sleep fitful an seemed nearly unhb' negan waiKiD old man seemed to bo whelmed in a melancholy daze; his rare utterances being those of u cheerless crone, look- j ing for his grave. The household had always held suspicions that Hans had robbed himself during his soinnambn- . listie performances of the years agono ; but the most careful search, far a'' so who world and the condition of t' inhabit it.

Jsut when it was found that they resulted only in harmless peregrinations about the premises and then a return to bed, dose observation was relaxed and the cirenmstance settled into a matter of course affair. He never remembered these nocturnal rambles, but occasion ally mentioned dreaming of inspections of (he plantation and the transfer of his crock to another place of security. At length news came of tho landing of the enemy. Then followed the lt tle a portion of it on his own farm the remit of whioh gave the British posses sion of the island. At its close a body of the dreaded Hessian cormorants encamp ed in agrove not a mile from his own door, and immediately appropriated ono of his fat beeves for their supper, without so much as saying: "by your leave." The crisis had come. Old Hans was terribly excited that evening, talked much of his treasure, ate little, and yielded to the entreaties of his family to take an anodyne and go early to bed; As usual he rose during the night, but so silently as not to disturb his wife at his side. His return toward morning, however, awoke her, and she noticed that he seemed wearied as though from extra exertion. But a sound sleep there after and a later rising put hrni into a more cheerful frame than he had worn of late. His daily visit shortly after to his suliteiranean treasury revealed the astounding fact that the crock, with all its precious contents was missing ! Con sternation immediately pervaded the household, and Old Hans seemed abso lutely stunned. When capable of ex pressing an Opinion, it was that some Hessian burglar had invaded his deposit mid that the act was only a preliminary to further operations of the red right hand upon his possessions. An 1 time lamentably verified his surmises. From that day forward he was a broken-down man. His apprehensions of the Hessians became a sad reality. They regarded him as a rebel at heart, lint too imbecile for harm. His son, to avoid arrest for complicity with his father's supposed sympathies, (led and ultimately joined the patriot army. His wife and daughter, to escape tho con stant danger of mortification and insult, took refuge with relatives on the Hud son, urging old Hans to accompany them. But he could not be induced to do so, and with a few of his elder ser vants remained to abide the devastation of his premises, being treated by the usurpers as a moping dotard. Every thing on the once thrifty manor went to ruin. Hessian ollicers were quartered in his mansion and tenant-houses; his groves and fences supplied them 'fuel, and several of his out buildings were pulled down and sent after them. His stock was butchered for rations or de voted to other service. His furniture some of it the heir-looms of generations was banged and battered liko the fivtures of a dram-shop, and all articles fancied by the rapacious foreigners law lessly appropriated by them. In fine, at t he close of their seven years' pos session, the buildings of the once pros perous old Dutchmen were a wreck and his farm a desolation. At length the war closed with the welcome acknowledgment of tho inde pendonco of the colonies. After the last red-coat had left the country, those who had been driven from their homes for opinion's sake began to return and to gather from the general ruin the wherewithal to begin nncw the struggle for a livelihood. Among these was the family Of old Hans Getter. With sor rowing hearts they surveyed the wrecks of their former prosperity. Of their whilom abundance nothing remained save the bare territory and the dilapi dated buildings. Kxcopt shelter every thing necessary to household comfort was as completely wanting as though they hud been dropped down in the midst of n western prairie. Hut by dint of hard work and borrowed money, crust of hopeless apathv that had so long overlaid it, and he be trayed a keener sense of his situation and surroundings. He once surprised the family at tho breakfast table by the impassioned exclamation to his son, "O John, if ye had that crock the cursed Hessians stole, ye might knock off w ork and be a nabob !" He farther enlarged upon its aid in the restoration of their former status, and from that hour his thoughts, sleeping or waking, appeared to be energized over his lost hoard. At length, so completely did his longings possess him, as to occasion a repetition of tho consequences of his former anxiety for its safety. He again com menced his nocturnal peregrinations about the premises, of which, as before,' he remembered nothing when awake. On the morning following one of these, he told the family he bad dreamed that he saw his crock with its v ntcnts in tact, where, he remembered mea while, himself had bestowed it a hint whi h, corroborating as it did the opinion his son had always entertained of its dispo sal, was improved forthwith. His next midnight tour was awaited with solici tude ; nor was it long delayed. After a day of great mental perturbation, Hans, after smoking his evening pipe, retired early to his restless bed. Near midnight he rose, dressed and went forth, silently followed by his son. Taking a spade from the tool-house, the old man moved cautiously across the paddock into the field beyond and toward an oak that once sentineled a considerable grove now laid low by the Hessian axe, whose size alone had saved it from a similar fate. At its foot the sleep-walker stop ped, looked furtively around ; then, removing a covering of withered leaves, began digging. The son, lying dow n at a short distance, watched his manonvres by the dim star-light, with feelings which may be better imagined than de scribed. It was some time ere the spade was laid aside, and then the old man knelt down, seemed to remuve something and to bend inquir ingly over the excavation. Next he proceeded to return tho earth, smooth the ground carefully and deftly replace the covering of leaves. Then he stole homeward and back to his bed. The sequel which his son ncted thereupon may be at once surmised, ltepeating the operation ho had just witnessed, albeit with more speed and less caution, ho unearthed tho veritable crock, heavy with treasure, and took it to the house. The next morning Hans told the family that ho had again seen in dreams his precious treasure, lamenting that ho must wake to the distressful sense of its loss. Then followed the joyful denouement. When tho crock was produced, and while its golden thousands were being counted, Old Hans laughed for tho first time in many years, and fairly danced with delight. Never Paas festival, with its boisterous merry-makings, found so happy a household. Tho result may be anticipated without further description. A twelve month thereafter saw the buildings and fences renewed or re paired ; the farm re-stocked with the choicest breeds ; trees re-set ; helpers and tenants rogainod ; debts paid and tho smile of former thrift overall. Hans renewed his age, his flesh and his ease ; married his daughter to a nice young Holland neighbor, whoso buxom sister Spouted his own son, and as tho old Dutchman smoked once more his eve ning pipe on his veranda, he forgot the Hessinns and smiled over his remunera tive dream. Springfitld Repubtioan. Editor' Troubles If an editor omits anything ho is lazy ; if he speaks of anything as it is, he is mad ; if ho smooth down the rough places, he is bribed ; if ho calls things by their proper names, he is unlit for the position of editor ; if he does not furnish his readers with jokes, he is stupid ; if he does, ho is a rattlo head, lacking stability ; if he condemns the wrong, he is a good fellow, but lacks discretion ; if he lets wrongs and inju res go nntnentioned, he is a coward ; if ho indulges in personalities, ho is a blackguard ; if he does not, his paper is insipid. In short, if he edits a paper properly, and sticks to truth and facts, he is a fool and doesn't know how to edit a paper half as well as his renders could, n new' , deposited one of their dead. This I Leeling of dread is enhanced by a belief in the vicious propensities of the lately freod spirit, which is inclined to harm j the presumptuous mortal who ventures ! too now. A spirit blow is liable to pro j dnce death, and is, I believe, always I followed by direful consequences, ns delirium, paralysis, or some permanent I injury. The Sioux, following the prac I tice of many other tribes, place the 1 bodies of the dead on a scaffold raised on poles some eight or ten feet in height. The corpse is wrapped in folds of cloth oi blankets and buffalo robes. Tho oc cupants of old scaffolds, which are often met with on the plains, resemble Egyp tian mummies. Persons of distinction, as noted warriors and chiefs, including sometimes the families of the latter, receive more honor in sepulchral rites, their remains being frequently inclosed in boxes a dry goods or shoo box, ob tained at the trader's store, answering the purpose. Sometimes in the grave yards of our frontier posts may bo seen towering above the stone that marks the white man's burial place the scaf fold on which reposes the body of the Indian chief. The soul of the departed Sioux finally ascends to the milky way, which, in their system, is a highway leading through space to the happy hunting grounds which lie somewhere in the far-distant regions beyond. To sustain the spirit during this long journey food and drink are required. Tho noted warrior and chief should be ushered in to those realms in becoming state ; to provide which, one or more horses must be sacrificed. There is an (dement of refinement in the savage idea attending the disposition of the supplies thus fur nished. It is not believed that the ma terial food is eaten, nor the actual water drank, nor the veritable horse ridden ; but in all material resides tho soul, and this resident spirit of the food and drink is consumed by the spirit of tho deceas ed, and the spirit of tho horso accompa nies the spirit of his master to the In dian paradise, where they are both re ceived into tho spirit land. These pro visions appear to be needed only during the journey from earth, the probable supposition being that the blissful re gions to which they are destined will be amply supplied with everything that can contribute to the happiness of its inhabitants. The Sioux, or at least some of tho Da kota bands, seem topossess quite nncient records, embracing prominent events in the history of the tribe. These recDrds are inscribed on parchment, the events of one generation being recorded by an individual who has received the appoint ment of historian, in virtue of which ho writes the history of his people during his life. On his death another is ap pointed. Thus tho more interesting events are perpetuated. Among the moro prominent that appear iu these barbarian 'annals is the account of the coming of the first white man who ap peared among them. Hois represented in a very favorable light. At first he came poor and defenceless among the Indians, who gave him a cordial wel come and ministered to his necessities. Ho did not prove ungrateful, but after leaving thorn, returned to the tribe, bringing articles useful to -tho Indians, with which ho engaged in trade, tho traffic being continued to the satisfac tion of both red and whito men. Tho records inscribed on this parchment, or skin prepared by savage skill, extend back to a remote date, perhaps reaching over nine hundred years. The early portion appeals to be of a legendary character, relating to tho creation of man on this continent, or at least the first appearance of the Indian race. The Black Hills was tho theatre of tho earli est of those historic or mythological events. Perhtpt the fondness of the Sioux for this special territory, and their reluctanco to part with it, was owing to tho associations connected therewith, as in Dakota annals the Black Hills ap pear to have constituted a new-world garden of Eden. The snperstitous element of Indian character is manifested in tho peculiar regard paid the medicine man of the tribe, and the implicit confidence with which his mediations are received and his advice followed. Perhaps among all religions known to mankind tho priests exert no greater iulluonco over tho minds of their followers than does the medicine man of the North American savage. His incantations were watched with the most profound respect, anil the result thereof awaited in fear and tremb ling. Their fortune in hunting and their success in war are foretold by, and perhaps depend upon, tho invocations and mysterious charms of the medicine man. His rude lodge is invested w ith a mysterious awe equal to that which I hallows the stately temple whose grand dome towo"i above tho habitations of half a "trillion worshippers iu other lais. Many of their dances and other ceremonies partakcof the same religious character. The great Dakota festival, the sun dance, appears to partake both of a religious and patriotic character. ( During its continuance, which is gener idly for three days, various ceremonies take place, perhaps the most prominent of which is tho self-torture indicted by i the young men to give evidence of their I bravery and test their endurance. The white visitor to the scene is attracted by the ghastly spectacle of .men in vari ous postures undergoing all the pain that their nature is capable of sustain ing. Vigorous methods are devised to exhibit tho courage of the sufferer, and particularly with the design of attruc' ing the admiration of the spectator. One favorite method is to cut incisions through the skin of Jhe back, atid through these pass thongs, the ends of which aro secured to some suppoit above, after which the victim throws his weight on the ropo and remains in this position until unconsciousness or the setting sun gives relief. There appears to be a like element pervading all bar barous or semi-barbarous religions. The priests of Baal cut themselves and lift their bleeding hands in supplica tion to heaven. The followers of Brah ma inflict physical torture as a powerful aid to their invocations. The worship pers of Odin and Thor delighted in pain and bloodshed. The druidical priests offered human sacrifices. The natives of the North American plains, in their great annual festival, indulge in ceremo nies similar in nature to those practiced centuries ago in the mountains of Syria, the forests of Scandinavia and Germany, and until a recent day in Hindostan.

The log is a triangular or quadrangular piece of wood abdlit a quarter of an inch thick, so balanced by means of a plate of lead as to swim per pendicularly in tho water, with about two-thirds of it under the water. Thelog line is a small cord, one end of which, divided into three so that the wood hangs from the cord ns a scale-pan from a balance beam, is fastened to the log, while the other is wound round a reel in the ship. The log, thus poised, keeps its plane in the water, while the line is unwound from the reel as the ship moves through the water, and the length of line unwound in a given time gives the rate of the ship's sailing. This is calculated by knots made on the line at certain distances, while the time is measured by a sand-glass of a certain number of seconds. The length between the knots is so proportioned to the time of the glass that the knots unwound while the glass runs down show the number of miles the ship is sailing per hour. The first knot is placed about live fathoms from the log, to allow the latter to got clear of the ship before the reckoning commences. This is called the strav-line. A Gentleman. If you cannot find a gentleman to marry, girls, do not marry at all. By that term I do not mean a man who is above the need of work ; he may bo any thing but a gentleman; but a man who knows how to work, who has self-respect enough to keep him from low habits both of speech and action ; who is cour teous and honorable ; who is not afraid of soiling his hands ; tho farmer, the blacksmith, the carpenter, any man may be a gentlemnn under dust and soot and chips, but if ho is not, girls, don't mar ry him at all ! There is enough trouble in life without increasing it in any way. Do not subject yourself to the mortifi cation that would be sure to come with a husband who would continually cause you to blush for his lawless actions, for hia coarseness and roughness, for his slippery dealings or for his hypocritical polish. It is not sufficient that a man looks and dresses well ; he must act and live well beside. In the Sick Koom. Under all circumstances keep the re freshments intended for tho use of the invalid covered. Milk is a ready absorb ent. Then there aro cooling drinks, jellies, blancmanges, and a variety of liquids usually seen at tho invalid's bedside, which are all more or less ab sorbent. These should be kept covered. I once visited an invalid who had her bedside table Supplied with an array of glasses, cups, tumblers, etc., tho con tents of not one of which could we see, all being coverod w ith a most amusing variety of glass and porcelain lids. The invalid liked to forget the contents of each, and was amused to lift one or an other of tho tiny covers and select a refreshment which presented itself to her taste. And to keep invalids amused and ready to relish what is provided for them, are important duties in nursing. Such slight attentions cost little trou ble, while they prove to the sufferer that he or she is tenderly cared for. If yon want to find a man of taste go into tho nearest lunch-room. D. J. WHITESIDE k CO., DHALKKH IN HATS, CAPS, Cents' Fine Furnishing Goods, ' 211 MARKET STREET, Clia ttniioon . Term. april 251 SHIRTS MtDE TO ORDER Some Snake Stories. Mr. Calkins, a gentleman on his way to La Crosse, from Sabula, had three pets in a box which ho was taking home as a present to a gentleman who has a private museum. He had occasion to stop off at Dubuque, and the pets were placed iu front of Jaeger t Romberg's store, where they were viewed by hun dreds of people. They consisted of three species of snakes, the venomous rattler, the blue racer, and a garter. Mr. Calkins found all three coiled lov ingly together and in a comatose state. Their bodies were as hard as rocks, and they appealed as if all life had been frozen out of them. When the sun shone upon their bodies life returned, and the warmer they became the more frequent were their split tongues ex hibited. The rattlesnake was the live liest in the party, and kept moving about and darting his head against the wire covering the cage. It could be seen that he was just about to crawl out of his old skin, as his new coat of yellow shone brightly' through tho dried and worn one. Mr. Calkins stated that by throwing a shovel of snow over them they would straighten out and pass into the spirit world, and apparently be as dead as a door nail. Ho has on several occasions frozen them as stiff as a bar of iron, and could bring them back to life by the least bit of warmth. While viewing the snakes tho spectators en gaged in snake stories which were high ly interesting. One gentleman claimed that a piece of mountain ash would do wonders to knock the life out of any snake, and not by pounding it either. To prove this assertion he stated that several years ago in Mayor Bush's field, Frank Bush and himself saw a large fat rattlesnake sunning itself. At first they wanted to club it to death, but having heard that mountain ash placed upon a snake would cause it to pass into a dead state, they wished to satisfy themselves. Securing a large limb of ash they poked the old fellow under the nose and ho died as slick as a whistle. Ho didn't seem to know what struck him. Previous to the time he smelt of tho ash he was hissing, rattling and playing quite a bluff game, but the ash lixed him. In a few minutes after thai wood had been removed, the snake re turned to life, and was tho same active old fellow, and as saucy as ever. Hav ing satisfied their curiosity, they beat the life out of the reptile and resumed their work. Another gentleman said he had been bitten throe times by a blue racer, but none of the bites proved fatal, and he didn't believe a racer was a poi sonous reptile. His hearers were well aware that they didn't prove fatal, but think that man is liable to say most anything. A man with a freckled face and a sun burnt noso told about the wonderful joint-snakes ho had killed on his farm near Bollevue. "I tell you, gentlemen" ho said, "them's the snakes which am snakes. Hit 'em with a stick, and every hit makes a dozen snakes. Oik- day I was walking in my field with a rake thrown over my sheuldor. Lookin' down, I seed a snake ran between my legs. I come down with the old ralte, and durned if that old snake didn't no Joint itself and run in fifty different directions. 1 was confused and didn't know what tor do. By and by I seed all tho jointers comin' toward me, and as they met, all hitched together and pulled one way. They came directly U) me, anil as I made anollior lilt again they dissolved partnership and each joint paddled its own canoe. I watched 'em again, and durned if they didn't some to mo again hitched together. While I was thinking I felt something under my shoe, and lookin' down I seed one of the joints squirmin' and trying to got away. I then knew what was up and hurried home to toll my boys. We all came out, but the snakes were gone and I haven't seen any since." He re cently took the pledgo. For fear that an honest man might come along the party adjourned. f)nlii(iic Time.
