The following account of the celebra ted Souix Chief, Spotted TatT, is from advarce sheets of General Brisbin's book : During the Utter years of the war, part of Spotted Tail's family remained for a time at Fort Laramie, and with them was Ma favorite daughter, a young girl just budding into womanhood. The fort waa then garrisoned by companies of Ohio regiment of volunteer cavalry. Among .

The sixth and seven shots were delivered at a blaekened five-cent nickel piece thrown up by the son, stand ing about thirty yards oft At the first attempt the shot missed. The old gentle man bowed considerable mortification and laid the blame upon a bystander, who at the critical moment sneezed loudly. The next attempt, however, was an en tire success. The old man declined any further t rials of his skill , and when offer ered a snm of money to repeat his first feat of shooting a potato from his son's hand, be refused, saying he don't wish to try such experiments unless his weapon I mm. t Ll 1 I mi L!L!.- wfipi iifiiu v r-ieitiieu. 1 ne cm d ion whh . . ... rm t .

Some little profession al jealousies sprang The present year will be memorable says the Baltimore Crorerre, as the season of flood and storms. The whole universe seems to be at war with the watery ele ment. In F ranee the terrible undulations in the valley of the Garonne have had their counterpart ia the destructive over flow of the Danube in Hungary and the calamitous tidal wave of Lake Leman, in Switzerland, which caused snch destruc tion at Geneva. England haa been visi ted by almost incessant rainfalls daring the whole summer long, which have rain ed large portions of the growing crops, and a si miliar misfortune has befallen the great central States of the West.

The storm belt extends over the States of Ohio, Kentucky, Indiana, Illinois, Soul hern Iowa and Missouri. The heavy raina began in May and extended through June, with intervals of clear weather, but since the first of July the rainfall baa been almost incessant. The destruction has been as great as that eacred by .sud den inundations, but the loss of growing crops has been heavy. Throughout the fertile bottoms of the Scioto, Muskingum, and Miami valleys of Ohio, and the Wabash regions of Indiana, the lands are entirely submerged, in many places to the depth ot several feet. The wheat crop, whether standing or harvested, haa been almost completely ruined, while the standing Corn has greatly suffered, and in many places has been washed away. So continuous have been the rains that very little harvesting had been done, so that i The speedy arrival hi this country of Messrs. Moody and Sankey is expected. They were to leave Liverpool in the steamer of August 4th, yesterday, and ay therefore reach this citv in the coarse of next week. For their safe voyage and return to the native shores in good health, the most fervent prayers will be offered by thousands who have beard of the won derful tbinga that have been done through the instrnoientality of tbese two men.

The supply of the former will undoubtedly be small, as compared with that of last year, but still euongh to meet the demands .of the export trade. The corn crop promises to be unusually large.

The floods of ita upper tributaries have receded, and it ia hoped so dread a calamity may be averted from the so tecently devested regions, though it is yet too early to speak with assurance.

The pulseless hand grew cold as the great chief promised bis child all she asked of him, then the lustrous eyes glased over, the thin lips ceased to to move, the smile fled from the wasted face, aud the Indian girl was dead. The heart broken chief bid the atten dants drees the body of the princess for burial, and on the ehouldc:s of the stout warriors it was carried to Laramie and be fulfilled. The forces of attraction that were to bring these two men again togeth er in mortal combat were too great to withstand, and Manning found himself, a few days ago, in the little town of Serbin. VeugaucH had claimed its reward; and uo i sooner had Manning become quietly dom iciled at his own home, than the fierce Mallette loaded his gun with deadly miss stes, went in search of Mauuing, and followed him to his own door, where he 1 nade an attempt to kill him, which result ed in the immediate death of Mallette.

From cellar to garret, all atoring places of fruit, pastry and sweetmeats were open and free. One of the very first fdeea impress ed upon the minds of the children waa that they were worthy of trust.
