BUFFALO HUNTING. These noble animals of the ox spe cies, which have been so well descri bed in our books on natural history, are a nubject of curious interest and great importance rendered peculiar-, v so at this time, like the history ofl^ the poor savage anil from the same tle, „rf? ized man, in a few years, to-live only in books or on canvas. The word buffalo is undoubtedly most incorrectly applied to these ani mals, and we can scarcely tell why they have been so called, for they bear just about as much resemblance to the eastern buffalo, as they do to a zebra or to a common ox. How nearly they may approach to the bison of Eu rope, hich we never have had an op portunity to see, and which we are inclined to think is now extinct, we are unable to say yet, if we were to judge from the numerous engravings we have seen of those animals, and de scriptions we have read of them, we should be inclined to think that there was yet a wide difference between the bison of the American prairies, and ami those in the north of Europe and that are now living in America, and seems to have been spread over the plains of this vast country by the Great Spkit for the use and subsis tence of trie red men, who live almost. exclusively o:f their flesh, and clothe themselves with their skins. Their color is a dark brown, but changing very much as the season varies from warm to cold their hair, or fur, from its great length in the winter and spring, and exposure to the weather, turnuig quite light, and almost to a jet black when the winter coat is shed off and a new growth is shooting out. The buffalo bull often grows to the enormous-weight, of 2,000 puiinds, and The female is much smaller than the male, and always distinguishable by the peculiar shape of the horns, which are made smaller and mure crooked, turninig their, points more in towards the centre of the forehead. One of the most remarkable charac teristics of the buffalo is the peculiar formation and expression of the eye, the ball of which is very large and white, and the iris jet black. The lids of the eye syem always to be strained quite open, and the ball rolling for- Wide 7,Is IS the lower lid, while the pure white of ihe eyeball glares out over it in the .^rch, in the shape of a moon at the end of its lirst quarter. ten spoken of by other writers, and may yet bo seen by any traveler who wili take the the pains to visit these regions. The "running season," \$iich in August and September, is the time when they congregate into such masses in some places as literal ly to blacken the prairies for miles to gether. The chief hunting amusement of the Indians in therc parts consists in the 4tkase of the buffalo, which is almost invariably done on liorso-back, with and laucc.1 J# this exercise, vfrhich it highly prized by them as one 4f their most valued amusements, as •^•ell as for being the principal mode for procuring meat for their subsis tence, tliftf become exceedinglyejjjert, and ai&Jpje to slay these liiS# pifi xnals WMt apparent ease.

The American bison, or (as we jlalo,ls often take place, notwithstand shall hereafter call it) buffalo, is the ,ln^ .0 °1 ^lie horse, and the largest of all the ruminating animals In the chase of the bullalo, or other animal, tin Indian generally "strips" himself and his horse by throwing off his shield and quiver and every part of his dress which might be an incum brance to him in running grasping his bow in his left hand, with five or six arrows drawn from his quiver, and ready for instant use. In his right hand (or attached to the wrist) is a heavy whip, which he uses without mere}", and forces his horse alongside of his game at the swiftest speed. These horses are so trained that the Indian has little use for the rein, which hangs on the neck, whilst the horse ap proaches the animal on the right side, giving his rider the chance to throw his arrow to the left, which he does at the instant when the horse is pass ing, bringing him opposite to the heart, which receives the deadly weap on to the feather.'' When pursuing a large herd, the Indian generally rides close in the rear until lie selects the animal he wishes to kill, which he separates from the throng as soon as he can, by dashing his horse between it and the herd and forcing it off by itself, where he can approach it without the danger of being trampled to death, to which he is often liable by too close ly escorting the multitude. No bridle whatever is used by the Indians, as they have no knowledge of a bit. A short halter, however, which answers in the place of a bridle, is in general use of which they usually form a noose around the under jaw of the horse, by which they ge.t great power over the animal, and which they use generally to stop rather than guide the horse. This has great power in arresting the speed of the horse, though it is extremely dangerous to use too freely as a guide, interfering too much with the freedom of his limbs for the certainty of his feet and the se curity of his rider. When the Indian, then, has directed the course of his steed to the animal llf s 0\e^y s^cc^cd^ the. training oi 18.S1UC, that it knows the ob- muscle to give it close company, while the halter lies k»ose and un touched upon its neck and tin? rider leans quite forward and off from tin side of his horse, with his bow drawn, and ready for the deadly sport, which is given the instant he is opposite to the animal's body. The horse being instinctively afraid of the animal (though lie generally brings his rider within reach of the end of his bow,)keeps his eye strained up on the furious enemy he is so closely en countering and the moment he has approached to the nearest distance re quired, and has passed the animal, wheiher the shot is given or not, he sheers off to prevent coming on to the horns of the infuriated beast, which often are instantly turnciftmd presen ted for the fatal reception of its too fa- attendant.

One of the saddest seeming neces sities of the human constitution, is that which makes suffering the price of love and tenderness. The sensitive souls are those who pay dearest for life they are also those who have the most of it in their flying years. The deli icacy of nerve which can appreciate tine elements of joy, and tin subtile soul of poetry and life in all things, is not, less upon to the harsh and atin^-nig impressions of ungenial and cruel cir cumstances. It is a problem to the snffofinty, how pained humanity may fortify its heart without hardening it. How can these tender affections, which bind mankind together and all sweeet things, be guarded in their warm integrity, with out suffering defeat, when disappoint ment comes It is a necessity of our natures, that bosoms open to the sun shine, must be open to the storm Is there no crystalline shield toward off the Rail and rain, and yet let in the warm light to turn aside the biting winds of sorrow, and not shut out the silent beams of hive There certainly should be, for to put such a tax on the finer sensibilities, is to tempt men to stoicism and harshness. We believe there is such a shield, clear translucent defence, open to the sun, but impregnable to the tempest. It is found in a deep lovingfaith. With all that has been said about a living faith, and have ever realized the sig nificance of the terms. To true faith, the tender heart can not be transfixed, for a wise foresight has measured the liability to outward loss, and disappointment, and the heart has therefore bound its tendrils around the loved in a place of higher relation ship, above the perishable and tran sient, clasping its kindred by the affin ities of their immortal nature. There are tears in the eyes of the sympathetic, faithful, but not of grief, for there are smiles also on the love lighted face, lie will not echo groans with you, nor give back long lugubri ous grimaces to match your own |lack bile.

The neutralizing property of 11 K i. Piils is far Superior to Quinine, or any tiling else yet discovered, as it will cure the disease not only immediately but elVectiuil ly, without any ill effect or fear of a return. In some ca.«os two pills only have been required to etfectacure. In severer ones as many as fourteen are necessary—the numlier contained in a single box end in a few ises two boxes have been used. Such is the conlidence of the proprietor In tlics Pilli that he oilers in all ca ses to refund the money if a cure is not effected after following the directions, which is what no other inventor of ague remedies projoses to do. It is a well known fact, that as the season comes around, new remedies are olferd to the public, purporting to cure these dreadful disea ses. It is als »well known that the chief reli ance is upon Peruvian liirk, S dicine. Salts of Wormwood, Strychnine, Quinine, Chinoidino, Arsenic, or other poisonous articles, which are prepared by persons who have no more knowl edge of medicine than a child. These reme dies will do no more than Quinine (Peruvian' Bark.) and every one who has taken it, knows that it frequently decs nothing more than check the disease for the time being, and in ma ny cases it has no effect whatever. The Omega Pills have been in use for years, and from every quarter the i:i' nattering tes timonials are given of their cllicaev and intrin sic worth.

Conklin told mo—" I had taken nine bottles of Christie's Ague Balsam, and continu ally run down while using it until my lungs and liver were congested to that degree that blood discharged from my mouth and bowels, so that all thought it impossible for me to live through another chill. The doctors too did all they could for lue, but thought 1 must die.— Nothing did me any good until I got Rhodes' Fever an Ague Cure, which at once relieved me of the distress and nausea at my stomach and pain in my head and IKJWCIS, and produced a permanent cure in a short time." IIj Sl. Conklin says: "I had been taking medicine of as good a doctor as we have in our county, and taken any quantity of quinine and specifics without any good result, from 25th August to 1.7th December. But seeing how nicely it operated on my brother, I got a bottle of Rhodes' Fever and Ague Cure, which effec ted a permanent cure by using two-thirds of a bottle." S. M. Conklin waB not hero, but both the other brothers say his ease was the same as H. M.'s. Isold the medicine to both the same day, and the cure was as speedy from the same sniali quantity, and I might so specify.
