A correspondent of the SprlngtioM Republican, writing from the interior of Madagascar, says: One of tlio most curious customs iracticod by tits Sukalsivus in a kind of ncantatlon and dunce, called thu Snla manga, to iinluco thu spirit of evil, which thoy boliovo possossus every ouo who ia ill, to leave tlio body in which it has enteral. To drive out this spirit many forms are gone through under tho direction of n sorcoror. In nil Sakalava towns there is a place ar ranged for tho driving out of evil spir its. A platform about seven feet long and three foot broad in supported twenty-five foot in the air by a straight up-and-down ladder constructed on one of the polos. Two moro porpondicul&r polos Btand at either end of tho plat form, and about twelve feet from it. At the tops of these lust two polos charms are tied, und on tho ground loaning against them, two wooden idols are plucod. When a spit-it is to be driven out, wood is brought to this place and arrangements nro made for building firos round the circle Inclosing tho scafloldiiig and Idols. Oxen and bullocks are also brought and secured noar the scaffolding, tho number depend ing upon tho rank of the sick person. s night approaches tho Invalid is brought out, arrangod in full dress, and hoisted upon tho platform. Tho cattlo are then killed und their blood smeared over tho two idols, and also over the bodios of tho people- collected about tho placo. As tho sun goes down the ilres aro lighted, and drums and bamboos aro beaten. A circle is then formed around the scaffolding and idols, and tho people, shouting and screaming, begin to circle around in a kind of danco, first slowly, then faster and faster, until thoy are nearly crazy. At tlio same time spoars aro thrown high in the air and tho idols are struck at again and ogaiu in order to forco tho gods to act AU have on their dross ornaments, and the sorcoror, under whoso diroo tion tho affair is being conduoted, usually -wears a very high hat, gorge ously trimmed and docked with leaves and flowers. As tho danco continues tho screaming suddenly slops, and wo men and girls begin to sing in a mo notonous refrain. Aftor the goueral danco tho people fall back out of tho ring, and a woman of rank, throwing off noarly all her clothing, steps with in the circle of ilro and begins to danco, kooping time to tho drums and bamboos, which inako a terrible din. This porformanco is often repented several times beforo tho sick person is given up. Upon ono occasion, in order to koep in tho good graces of the peo ple, your correspondent was obliged to take part in this danco. An invalid who docs not got any bettor after re peated attempts to drivo out tho ovll spirit, is often treated in a most bar barous manner; poison is either admin . istered or a spear driven through tho breast. This last cure from misery is usually ncsorted to by request of tho invalid. Tho Sakalavas havo another poouliar and picturesque danco 'which takes place by inooulight usually upon tho nights of the full moon. Drums are beaten, bamboos and horns aro blown, and the wholo villago is turned out. All the men then form in an open space, which sorves as aklnd of parade ground. Tho music continues and tho" dance begins, the men in their actions representing tho various movements assumed in battle. There is tho at tack, tho conflict, the pursuit and tho victory. All are shown by a kind of acting. Their spears, which aro very long and bright, gliston in tho moon light as they are repeatedly hurlod up in tho air and caught again in ono hand, while a colored scarf of somo kind is waved in the other. To mo tho wholo performance was strange and exciting, and, undoubtedly, it is very inspiring to tho savage Sakalavas. Later in the evening the women and children join in the dance, and singing qojqM. uj oiwq inSnoj jo tjmo poanicfoa suq jojqo Suipoooons on.) vxm ojordinoo joaou 9J sopioiuojoo puounj 1I poouid A"poq otj pun ino poMonoq 'osjMqjSaoi ijirds e Sot spqx "os&ioo eqi uuqj joSuoj jcqAoraos So u Sninno A"q optn si utjjoo y 6BAosmoqj eangtjsjp osiMJoqio pn Jioqi jjo una 01 pOljqO 01U BOAJAi 6H pUtJ poJIIJf 01V moo siq jo Jtinq ijcoaS oqi jojqo v jo XHTJOp Olfl l)y lUtMOjrjlp ITjqMOUlOB puo OApjuoix9 worn 6j Auoui9joo oqj pojjuq oju 3JUM. jo eplood uatm 'pijoa WOtt oqi m iKis isoq3 oqi 9Ai3 oi jepjo uj Apoq eqj qijAi pojanq ojoav sopnas joqjo aoj pntj iqas jo soooid omog '8abj9 eq; aoAo poouid uoqj bbaa sooi jo od qSji y qiaua qitM ' an peaeAoo uoqi pu oatsjS Avonvqs oiuj pejpm nmx 6bm esdaoo oqi peqo8i sum pijanq jo eoid oqi uoq u ?ueumoidisoraeqi mu. osjojoxo neus qopqM'.uj 'poouornmo!) ojom 8ora3 OReiqw jo sojjqs pn pnnoa3 eqi no peoid him osdjoo etn prioa oqi 3uop3 IAj9ini y Sajuoi pn Suirauojog W9A otIA 'fuouanota jo o(avi v q p8A0pDJ BBM.

It is a terrible severe courso that ono has to go through Iu preparing to dance on the stage, lruo enough, the dancer who means to exerciso Tier art ns Taglioni did, must show nothing of the gymnast in her performance; but gymnastic.! of tho severest kind nro tho most necessary part of tho training. When dono with the grace of a Taglioni it does not kcciu so hard to turn tho feet outward "until they form a straight line," to balance oneself on the points of the toes, or to pirouotto gracefully ou ono leg; but tho toll of these exercises Is known only to those who navo practiced thorn undor tho eaglo eye of the ballet-master; and they are, after all, only tho A B C of tho art. Tho French author of a re markable work on tho subject mentions a score or moro of technical studios, such as les taqucles, lex roncltcs, les bal uncus, les entrechats, les dcvelopjh-s, les y rands lunettes, which, as Mr. Cook says, are scarcely intelligible outside the walls of the class-room. Ono has but to glance at tho limbs of a prima ballerina, say on tho stage of tho Alhambra, to' form a notion of tho ex traordinary severity of tlio training sho has undorgouo, tho displacement of tho calf, tho fattcuing of tho leg in front, tho disproportion in size botweon tho arms and legs; showing, what might have been expected, that tho lower muscles can not bo abnormally developed without injury to the upper. It says something for tho skill with which Taglioni was trained, and much also, no doubt, for tho natural vigor and elasticity of her form, that by the tinio sho was ready for her debut, hor flguro was not ouly quito unspoiled, but had developed to an almost ideal perfection of suppleness nud grace. Many a ballet dancer has a cood log. but a beautiful arm is a rare possession; yet ono of her English critics, when she lirst appeared in London, said with emphasis, in his commonts on her personal charms, that "Mile.

It is active and swift, and irritable to such a degree that ono can scarcoly help thinking that in this specios nature has overshot her mark.

I camo ouco very noarly being bitten by ono of thoso savage creatures. Kuling at an easy trot over tho dry crass, I suddenly obsorved a spider pursuing mo, leaping swiftly along and koeping up witn my Doast, I aimod a blow with my whip, and the point of tho lash struck tho ground close to it, when it instantly leaped upon aud ran up the lash, and was within three or four inchos of my hand when 1 flung tho whip from mo. The gauchos havo a very quaint ballad which tells that tho city of Cordova was onco invaded by an army of mon strous spiders, and that tho townspeo ple went out, with beating drums and flags flying, to repel tho invasion, and after lirlug several volleys thoy were forced to turn and fly for their lives. I havo no doubt that a sudden great in crease of tho man-chasing spiders, in a year exceptionally favorable to them, suggested this talo to somo rhyming satirist of tlio town. Ucnllemaris Magazine.
