Origin of the IIurutin Kuccs.

By request, a census was handed in by the chiefs, and on the commissioners asking if the statement embraced the blacks, and those who were idayes, there was BO violent a buret of indignation Irom Nebematha as to require rejoinder and reproof from those who represented the U. States. On explaining the motive of the inquiry, however, that the commissioners, in the allotment of territory, were desirous ol providing for the negro as well as the Indian, Jfeheinethla was reconciled to the supposed indig...

Ti.V Picture of (lie old Cougrcsi. In the President'® chair sits Hancock, crowned with a demeanor graceful and splendid, like 'biasing Hyperion on his orbed ihrone.' Prominent in the heroic band, and oldest of their number, is he who at the same time snatched the lightnings from the skies and the scepter from the oppressor's hand. There too is Morris, the financier of the revolution, whose generous ski, advanced on his own credit, paved the way for the victories at Trenton and Princeton, and in the gloomiest hour causcd the American eagle to soar aloft towards heaven. More retired, but not less interented, is that old Puritan, Samuel Adams, 'on his front engraven thoughtaml public care.' IJe was among the very first to exciie popular rebellion against wrong, and he is here to aid its progress and pray for its consummation. Of few words, hut abounding in great and beneficent deeds, he sits in council grave and taciturn, like -grey-haired Saturn quiet as a stone,' his soul firm as gra...

1,1- *$•- *?V, r- Statistics of the War. The whole number of Americans that were killed in the recent war, including the line of the Rio Grande and that of Vera Cruz, is estimated at 2000, and the wounded at 4000. It is impossible lossy how many of the latter have died in consequence of their wounds, but we should suppose not less than one-fourth, say lOvX), making in all 3000 deaths from battle. -J This, however, bears but a small proportion to the number who have sunk under disease. We state under the authority of several officers of rank, that, on the left flank of the Casil-i of Perote, there are 2600 American graves, all victims of disease. A still larger number perished at the Capital—lite deaths there were for a considerable time one thou$and monthhf. and we learn that at no lime did they fall below from 3 to 400. The first Mississippi regiment that wentouttothe Rio Grande, buried 135 on the banks of that river before it went into battle, and finally brought back less than on...
