A Remarkable Ciseoveryin Flordia.
We learn that the Indian mound | on Murphy's Island was opened, or rather entered, by a party a few | days ago. I his mound is one of i the largest on the river, and has j excited more than ordinary iutcre;t j nSlorüftr'- | liu ! upo'n which the'mound 10 stands! heretofore persisted in his refusal to have this relic of past ages dis turbed*. On Wednesday, however, it was resolved to inspect thorough ly this monument of a prehistoric age. A party from the Putnam, witii others, took steamer for the tsland, where they arrived in good . time. It was agreed to open the j Ä X discovered a hard wall made of co quina or shell rock. This wall was i cemented, aiul was ornamented with I various figures of warriors with bows and arrows and various rep- ] tiles. After much difficulty a breach was made in the wall, and by the light ot a torch, several of the party entered ; much surprised they found themselves within a vault bf i;s 0 h ä'tnrs ÏÏÏ wai'riora unoaMd in uichcs, all in « case of petrification. This is cot Mainly a most wonderful discovery, and has produced a profound sensa t on. In view of this importaut i discovery, Colonel Hart has sta- j tioned a guard to prevent parties making away with these wonderful ; objects.

The old clergyman who was sitting close to him, said nothing, but fixed his pier eing blue eyes upon him with a look of extreme wonder and astonishment. At last, the coachmau became uneasy, and turning round to him, said, "What makes you look at me, sir iu that way?" The clergyman said, with his eyes fixed upon him, "I cannot imagine what you will do in heaven. There are no horses or coaches, saddles, or bridles, or public houses in heaven. There will be no one to swear at or . to whom you can use bad ian- ; guago.' 1 cannot thjnk what you will^do when you get to ' heaven."

I gave one of my pamphlets to I the captain, end in the evening , as soon as the gamoing was over, I offerd to purchase the pack but the captain refused, . saying, "I do not sell cards, but j will give them to you."
