. And the nobles boxved assent, whilst the
emperor asked of Jovinian his name, and
hi?t business with the empress.
Askest thou me who 1 am. and where

not J thy emperor, and the lord of this
hotise and this; realm ?" f
-l'liese our ncfbles shall decide," re
plied the nexv king. Telljitie noxv, which
of' us twain is your emperor ?"
And the nobles ansxvered with one ac-f
coird : " Thou dost trifle xvith us, sire. Can
xve do,ubt that thou art our emperor, xvhom
xve have krioxvn from his hildhood ! A
for this base felloxv, xve know not who he
is." p . ( ;
And with one accord the people cried
out .against Jovinian that (he should be
punished. : - j
On this the usurper turned to the em-!
press of Jovinian -Tell me," said he,
"on thy true faith, knowestthou this man
who calls himself emperorjof this realm ?"
And the empress answejred Good my
lord, have not thirty years passed since 1
first: knew thee, and became the mother of!
our children ? Why askest thou me of
this felloxv ? and yet it dolj 'surprise mej
hoxv he should knoxv xvhati hone save you
andi Lean know ?" I
Then thej usurper turned to Jovinian, j
and( xvith a harsh countenance rebuked;
his presumption, and ordered the execu-j
tioiiers to dj-ag him by the feet bhorses!
until he dietl. This said he before all his
court ; but he sent his serxlant to the Jail-!
erl and commanded him tol scourge Jovin-i
iani and for this once to Set him free.
The deposed emperor desired death.;
Why," said he to himselfj f should I now!
live? my friends, my dependants, yea, e-j
verithe partner of my bed shuns me, and!
1 am desolate jamong the whom my!
bodnties hajkre raised. Come, I will seek
thgood priesto whom Ijso often have
laid open mxj most secret faults: of a
surety, he vlf remember ie.M
j Noxv, thtj good priest ltfeH in a small
cell; high to a chapel, about a stone's cast
from the palace gate ; and when jovinian
knocked, tlje priest being engaged in read
ing; answered from within! NVho is theret
why trouhlcst thou mefll !1
"lam the emperor Jovinian ; open the
window, I would speak to thee replied
the! fugitive. Mi . .
r -' Immediately the narroxv window of the
cell was opened, and the priest. looking
out, saw no one save the poor half-clothed
jovinian. "Depart irom me, tnou ac
cursed thing" cried the priest ; thou art
not our good lord the emperor, but the
foul fiend himself, the great tempter." j
i Alas, alas 1" cried Jovinian.4 to what
fate am I reserved, that; even my own
good priest despises me. Ah me, I be
think me in the. arrogance off my heart
I called myself a god : the xveight of my
sin is grievous unto me. Father, good fa
ther, hear the sins of a mise fable peni
tent." ; . ''
Gladly did the priest listen to Jovinian;
and xvhen be had told him all his sins.he
good priest comforted the penitent, and
assured him of God's mercy, if his repen
tance was sincere. And so it happened
that on this a cloud seemed Jo fall from
belbre the eyes ol the priest; and when
he again looked on Jovinian he knexv him
to be the emperor, and hej pitied him,
clothing him xvith such poor garment as
he had, and went with him to the palace
gate. I j
The porter stood in the gateway, and,
as Jovinian and the priest drexv near, he
made a loxvly obeisancej and opened, the
gate for the emperor. ".Dost thou khox;
me ? asked the'emperorL I I
Very well, my lord." replied the j' ser
vant ; u but I wish that you; had not! left
the palace.", i i
i- So Jovinian passed on to the hall of his
palace; and as he went, rill the nobles
rose and boxved to the emperor ; for the
usurper was in another apartment,! and
the nobles khexv again the face of Jovin
ian. h !
But a certain knight passed into the pre
sence of the! false emperor. " My lord,"
said he, ,4 there is one in the great hall to
xvhom all men boxv, for he so much rp-
sembleth you that xve knoxy not which js
Then said the usurper to the empress,
"Go and see if you knoxv this man."
"Oh, my good lord," said the empress,
xvhen she returned from the hall, " Whom
can I believe ? are there,! then, txvo Jo
I will myself go and determine," re
joined the usurper, as be took the ernpress
by t he hand, and leading her into the great
hall, and placed her on the tlione beside
Kinsfolk and nobles," said the usur-
per, " by the oaths y? haxe sxvorn, deter
mine betxveen me and thife man.
And the empress ansxvered, " let me.as
in duty bound, speak first. Heaven be
my xvitness, I knoxv not which is my lord
and Jiusband. U
And all the nobles said the same.
Thereupon the feigned Jovinian rose
and spake : :
Nobles and friends hearken ! that man
is your emperor and your master: hear
ye him ; knoxv that he did exalt himself
above that xvhich was right, and made
himself equal unto God. Verily he hath
been rexvarded : he hath I suffered much
indignity and wrongs and, of God's will,
ye knexv him not ; he hath repented of his
grievious sin, and the scdurge is noxxr re
moved ; he has made sueh satisfaction as j
TREATY WITH THE WINNEBAGOES.
: The Delegation of Winnebago Indians, hav
ing at length concluded a Treaty with the Uni
ted States Commissioners, have departed for
their! homes. Te general provisions pf the
Treaty, as stated by the Union, are as follows :
" The Winnebagoes quit claim to the United
States all the territory xvhich they noxv inhabit,
and to which they have the full title of occupan
cy. This tract embraces about 1.500,000 acres.
In addition to this, the Indians cede all the title
facts in natural history.

xve shall find the stud of that stilf more amus

body can be moved xith so much velocity and
such regularity of speed, not even the straight
line. Mathematicians discovered thU not ma
ny years ago ; but Niture's God taught U to the
eagle before mathematics were invented ; and
when the eagle pounces on bis prey he de-
senbes the Pgure of a cycloid.
A globe placed in water or in air in moving
meets with resistance,' and its velocity will be
retarded. If you alter the globe to the form of
an egg, there will be less resistance. And then
there is a form called the solid of least resist-
ance, which mathematicians studied for many
years to discover ; and, when they had dlscor.
ered it, they found they had the form of a fish's
head 1 Nature had " rigged out " the fish xvith
just such a figure. ;
The feathers of birds, and each particular
part of them, arc arranged at such an angle as
to be most efficient in assisting flight. The hu.
man eye has a mirror,on xvhich objects are re
flected, and a nerve by which these reflections
are conveyed to the brain, and thus we are en
abled to take an interest in the objects which
pass before the eye; Now, xvhen the eye is too
convex, xve use one kind of glasses to correct
the fault ; and if it be not convex enough, or if-
we wish to look at objects at a different dist
ance, xve use glasses of entirely another descrip
tton. ; i
But, as birds cannot get spectacles, Provi
dence has given them a method of supplying the
deficiency. They have the power of contract
ing the eye, of making it more convex, so as to
sec the specks xvhich float in the atmosphere,
and catch them for food; and also of flattening
the' eye, to see a great distance, and observe
whether any vulture or other enemy is threaten
ing to destroy them. In addition to this, they
have a film or coating which can suddenly be
thrown down over the eye to protect it; lie-
cause at the velocity at which they fly, and with
the delicate texture'of their eye, the least speck
of dust would act upon it as a penknife thrust
into the human eye. This film is to protect the
eye, and the same thing exists to some extent
jn the eye of a horse. The horse has a large
eye, very liable to take dust. This coating, in
the horse's eye, is called the haw, or third eye
lid, and if you will watch closely you may see
it descend and return with electric velocity. It
clears axvay the dust and protects the eye from
j injury, If the eye;should catch cold, the haw
hardens and projects, and ignorant persons cut
it off, and thus destroy this safeguard.
You all know if you take a pound of iron and
make of it a rod.a loot long, what xveight it will
support. But if it be a hollow rod, it will sup
port a weight many times greater than before.
Nature seems to have taken advantage of this
also long before the mathematicians had discov
ered it, and all the bones of animals are hoHow.
The bones of birds are large, because they must
be strong to move! their large wings with such
velocity ; but they: must also be light in order to
float easily on the air. Birds also illustrate an
other fact in natural philosophy. If you take
a bag, make it air; tight, and put it under water,
it will support a large xveight, say a hundred
pounds. But twist! it, or diminish the air in it,
and it will support no such weight. Now a bird
has an air bag.- When he xvishes to descend
hecompresses it, apd falls rapidly; xvhen he
would lise he increases it, and floats with ease.
He also has the power of forcing air into the
hollow parts of the body, and ihus to assist his
flight. The same 'thing may be observed in
fishes. They also have an air bag to enable
them to rise or sink in the water till they find
their proper temperature.
If they wish to rise they increase il ; if they
wish to sink they compress it, and down they go.
with that entered into last spring xvith the Pot-
tawatamies, extinguishes all Indian title what-
soever to lands comprehended in the new State '
of Ioxva. ! The Indians are to remove from the !
lands thus ceded within one yar. Whatsoev.
er obstacles their presence might therefore pre
sent o the growth of the population and the
development of the resources of the State of
Iowa! are thus effectually removed.
' " In consideration of this cession of lands on
the; part of th Indians, the Government of the
United States undertakes to assign to them a
suitable tract of land west of the Mississippi for
their jiiew homes. Of the fund xvhich the treaty
stimulates to be paid to them, a very considera
ble proportion is, by the terms of the treaty, to
be expended under the direction of the Presi
dent itbtL theirj improvement in the arts and oc
cupations of cizdized lite. A sum is set apart
for the establishment of manual labor and
schools among them. To maintain these es
tablishments among the different tribes, some
80,000 per annum are, we believe, already ap
propriated by the treaties of 1832 and 1837.
The! additional allowance made for this olyect
by the present treaty will secure to the Winne
bagoes great facilities for education and im
provement. A portion of the fund is also set
apart for the purpose of breaking up and fenc
ing ihe ground in the nexv territory to which
the Indians are'to remove. A commencement
of agricultural operations will thus be made a- j
mong them, which it is hoped they may be in
duced to continue. Another considerable por
tion: of the consideration money named in the
treaty is to remain in the hands of the Govern
ment, at an interest of five per cent., to he paid
annually to the Indians, for their use and bene
fit through a period of thirty years. Indeed,
through all the provisions of the treaty, the pur
pose; has been kept steadily in view so to pay
and distribute the sum stipulated to the Indians
for their lands as best to secure their comforta
ble subsistence, and to open to them as far as
possible opportunities for improvement."
