Sorghum halapense, the particular species
oi uuiuea grass or wntcn we are uow
speaking, (and it is the kind most widely
dnown tinder that name,) is a perennial
with underground stems or rootstocks
(rhusomas) by means of which it spreads
like Ueriuuda or Joint grass. These un
doiground stems or "roots,'' as they are
gcuerally called, are very large and strong,
and extend themselves rapidly in overy
direction. The plant also propogatca itself
by means of its seeds, so that it will be
readily understood that if this grass is
good a friend, it is, like firo, a dangerous
enemy; and one should consider well be

whether he is willing to give it full posses
sion of a certain part of his laud, to have

A Terrible Tale.
A year ago last February the barqe
Jewess of Boston sailed from New South
Wales in the direction of the Auckland
Inlands, a group which lies in the Sooth
Pacific ocean, netr New Zealand. A few
days later, the Boston barque Delia M.
Long and an fbngush barque, name un
known, followed on the same course. No
tidings of the two Boston vessels were
received in this city till recently, when
Capt Brewer of Biddcford, Me., of the
barque Marathon, New lock, returning
from a voyage around the world, brought
back a terrible story in regard to them.
At one of tho ports at which he stop-
ed he had fallen in with a sailor, or some
one who knew him, who purported to be
the sole survivor cf tho three crews. The
vessels, he said, had become becalmed in
the vicinity of the Auckland Islands, and
lay there together several days. They
were boarded at night by cannibals, who
"J came in large numbers, overpowered the
craw, plundered the ships and scuttled
them, i he men were carried prisoners to
the shore, and furnished food for a horri
ble feast of their captors. No particulars
or the nght or or the survivor s escape
were obtained; but tho facts- are pretty
well authenticated, and the long absence
of the vessels furnishes good ground for
believiug the story may be true.
The survivor was one of the crew of the
Jewcsn, and he is said to have related that
the surprise was complete, tho vessel be
ing some distance from land and no signs
of enemies having been seen. The usual
precaution taken when a ship is becalmed
in the vicinity of land inhabited by sava
ges, is to drive sharp nails, placed closely
together, through boards, which are placs
ed over the deck and fastened firmly
down, leaving the sharp iron points stick
ing up. It is then impossible for the bare
footed savages to step upou the deck, aud
they arc shot off at leisure. This precau
tion was uot taken on board the Jewess,
the survivor said, becanee no danger was
It is understood that no ship uf the U.
States navy now stationed in the South

vessels there were probably thirty men,
but the names of any cannot be ascertain

The Prehistoric Civilization of
The mysterious solitudes of the great
West, those trackless wastes of desert
and mountain, oi deep wooded valley and
rolling prairie which are embraced within
the Territories bordering on the Mexican
frontier, says the New fork Herald, are
slowly yielding up their secrets to the
scientific explorer. Strange ai it may
seem, there are many hundreds of thous
ands of square miles of our national do
main which are as yet a terra incognita,
so far as onr knowledge of their physical
geography is concerned, and it is to spe
cial explorations, such as those cf the
Itayden survey, that we sre indebt-
dfor any information we possess of the
topographical detaile, geological struc
tures, flora and fauna and ethnology of
these wild regions. Regarding their
early occupation by man we are
com pel led to base oer speculations on
such positive evidences as are furnish
ed by the work of human hands. Time
and the operation of natural causes efface
all traces of human existence except
those which can resist decay or withstand
the action of the elements. Even such
indestructible objects may be buried be
neath the shufting desert sands, as in
Egypt and Syria, or overwhelmed by
voicaiic eruptions, an at rompeii
and Ilerculaneum, or lost in the depths of
dense forests which have grown from the
seedlings scattered by the winds among
the ruins of prehistoric cities, as in Now
Mexico and Brazil. The evidences being
-e m a . a
present that civilization once existed in
the midst of this continent, the skill of
the aiclucologist can alone determine its
antiquity by comparison and inference
A condition of civilization may bo sea
sonably inferred when we find order,
'symmetry and ornament combined in the
structure aud arrangement of ancient re
mains. The first two characteristics in
dicute design and intelligence governed
by customs which have grown into laws
for general guidance, while ornamentation
indicates taste, a certain degree of luxury
and popular education, which created
general appreciation of the beautitul in
form and color. To these may bo added
the significance traceable in all works
that have emanated fiorn peoples who
lived in communities aud adopted mater
ial forms iu the expression of their relig
ious eeutiincnts. All these conditions of
evidence are found in the remains on
which wc base our theory of the existence
of a prehistoric civilization in America.
In order to form an estimate of the anti
quity of this civilization wo are again, iu
the absence of historical record, forced to
speculate on its source, duration and re
lative progress with regard to that of
kuowu pcoph's. The degree of civiliza
tion attaiucd bv the early inhabitants of
Egypt and India can be readily un
derstood as -bared by peoples main
tainiug an intimate intercourse With them,
and as likely to differ, or rather to folio
j another course, when the means of inter
communication ceased. If architectur
al remains fnrnished auy clew to this

tbe pushing propeller being attached to
one end, and the polling propeller to tbe
other in order that tbey can be worked to
the best advantage, and to allow the ship
to turn around on its own pivot in the
air. Underneath are two rudders, fore

making tbe ascent, the palling propeller
will be pat in motion, assisted by tbe

balloon is 265,919, cubic feet. Hydrogen
gas will be used, and this substance is so
light that it is calculated that one cubic

Dr. DeBoit, the chiropodist, who is

into our office ou last night Mr. Flow a
deaf mute, and caused him to pronounce
a number of words in a surprisiagly clear

tho first words that he had ever ulterred
in his life, aud being utterly deaf, has
never heard a sound. Tho Doctor taught
him to speak from the peculiar movement
of his lips, which the mute closely watch

has practiced it before and tells us that
he can teach most mutes to talk. Being

eager for a little pleasure, blind to eonsc

they please, and give no account of what

the case with many or tne Doys ot your

are being formed, which will ultimately
eat out all of their manhood. The suc
cessful parents of to-day are those who
are developing in their children noble a-,
piratiens aud manly habits ot business
and study. It is a good thing for parents
to build beautiful houses, to baeo social
culture in their families, to make golden
fortuues, but it is greater, finer, infinitely
grander, to nurture, develop and turn out
noble boys and queenly girls. There are
no jewels so bright as iutell sctual jewels.
There aro no trees so fruitful of good re

could not recollect the crime of which the

morning been readiug about a very wick

plate in the Bibhi where it was to be
foaud, aud, wishing to refer to it imme

him to tbe hook aud cbspter, and he er
traced his rtepe with a satisfied air ; bat
his memory proved treacherous again, for
when he reached bis room be could not
recall anything the minister told him
Dcterraiued, however, to vindicate the
