A PICTURE OF THE PRAIRIE BV ALUEUT IMKE. TIjo world of Prairie wliieli lies at a distance of more than three hundred miles west of the inhabited portions of the United States, and south of the river Arkansas and its hranclics lias been rarely trodden by the foot or beheld by the eye of Anglo-American. Rivera rise there in broad level waste, of which, mighty though they beconio in their course, the source is unexplored. Duscrts are there, too barren of grass to support even the hard y buffalo—and in which water,except here and there a hole, is never found. Ranged over by the Camanches, tlic Pawnees, thcCaiwas, and other equally wandering, savage and hostile tribes, iLs very name is a mystery and terror. Tl><- Pawnees have their village entirely nnrlh of this part of the country; and the war parties—always on foot—arc seldom to be met with to the south of the white and civil, ized Indian settlements.

New Fashion foil Hair.—A letter from New York says:— " I was amused nt a new fashion of wearing the hair which has lately been introduced by our super-clegants, and which I «aw tn perfection last evening. The peculiar thing in it is to reduce tho whole head to the state of a slubblo field, and he is the most elegant man who comes nearest to having his sconce shaved perfectly smooth. One gent, last evening, wore his hair about a quarter of an inch long, and as its color was red, the effect was ludicrous enough- The man looked as though his upper works were set thickly over with short, fiery brUtlcs. However, if others laughed lie admired and, both parlies being well pleased, the thing could not have been better. 1 * Her Ivsocknce Proved.—The jewelry alleged to have been stolen by tlic servant girl, at St. Louis, Khzubclh Itcddick, who committed buicidc one tl^y week liefcirc last, has been found at the house of her former mistress, and in the very spot where it was placed by her ...
