While exploring some of the Indian mounds supposed to bo of prehistoric origin at the portage, near that city, the remains of several adults were found imbedded in at omb,walled with baked clay, about four feet from t p of a mound, and some of the bones were in a line state of preservation. The skulls, two of which were taken out whole, were in shape not unlike those of the chimpanzee, and the bones of enormous size and length, proving that they belonged in life to persons of gigantic stature. They lay in a bed of ashes and burnt clay, and with them were found a dozen or more bears claws with holes drilled in the large end, and the sides exquis itely carved; a half dozen large-sized, lustrous pearls, evidently used for beads; a copper bodkin, copper ax, a copper utensil about six inches long, chisel-shaped at one end and round at the other; a large sized and beautifully carved piece of crockery; a (lint spear head, and several other articles never before unearthed in this locality. The mounds, of which there are a large number, in that vicinity were located on a high bluff or bank of the Sinsin awa lliver. overlooking the Mississ ippi and the whole country for miles around. The discoveries have excited the curiosity of all who have seen them, and are regarded as exceedingly rare hy those who have made arche ology a study.
