upon the tes imonv of Doctors Checseimu

the jury returned tne following verdict:
'I is tho opinion of this jury that the

Board of Foreign Missions, to the Indians

from Fort Vaucoum, (exirac.s of which
are published in the last number of the Misj
sionary Herald) mentions amongs? other remarkable
objects discovered on his journey,
a natural soda fountain, which he and his
party passed, three days journey from Fort
Hal), that may be considered one of the
wonders of the world. The fountain had
several openiugs. " One of then)*" says
Mr. Spalding, " is about fifteen feet in diameter,
with no discovered bottom. About
twelve feet below the surface, are two large

But hive they never been put to i: t test
during th.it period V " Lor,dear stir,no
they have nev. r been out of this chaivbet
and I set as much by them as tlie appte 0
my eye," The old lady lived say*ra
years efterxvards, fell into a state of, fi

of tli it which she Ind deprived hersel
the use of, un.d which would have comrib

did not. I lurned to look lor ueip, and
