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

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
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

objects. Murphy s Island will, no

" What Could IIe do in
Heaven." —It was about thirty ,
years ago or more, when stage '
eoaohes still ran, that an excel-,
lent old clergyman, who had a
keen observai iou of the world,
was traveling on top of the coach 1
It was cold, wintry weather,
and the coachman, as he drove j
his horses rapidly, poured forth !
such a volly of oaths and foul
language as to shock all the
passengers. 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 '

| Taking- the canal-boat at Hazel
hatch, I went to Athy; and on

i me repeatedly to play at cards:

have the consent of captain;".
tho 7 then Iook ed and laughed, j
anc pl a y ec | on > now and then ;
turning a joke on me.
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." Where
