ing hands, they 'stood with the clear
waters between them a bridge as it
was with the twining lingers, and
cro-scd by a stream of" love as pure as
itself. All was silent, still, until bro

'And out. of the rib -which the Lord
God had taken from the man made he
a woman and brought her to the man.
And Adam said. v This i now. bone of

shall a man leave his father and his
mother and cleave unto his wife; and
they shall l-e of one llesh."
ie closed the hook and offered a
most touching prayer; not a heart but
seemed to feel that earnest appeal
to the Throne of Grace.
Then, asking the usual questions, lie
pronounced them husband and wife.
The bride, slowly sinking oa her knees,
raised her beautiful face, all covered
with tears, and her clasped hands and.
in the most thrilling, sweet voice,
tremulous with deep emotion, said:
'And now, O! merciful Father!
grant that our two lives, thus
united, may peacefully flow into one,
even as this rivulet, until we reach the
Pdver ot Death ; and undivided in faith
or conduct, Le permitted to enjoy
Thine eternal emile, in the land of the
pure and the blest."
Kvery pulse seemed still, hoping,
wishing for more of this Ix-autiful
drama. "Not a word, not a movement
from all that throng; all, all was hap
piness. O! lovelv panorama! how
deeply thou art graven oa the lieart.
The happy man was in the act of im
printing ji kis3 upon the smiling lips
of his magnificent wife, when the' clear
tones of a manly voice startled all
from their pleasing reverie ; universal
gaze rested on a tall Teiinessean, whose
eagle eye bespoke the man a. tit rep
resentative' he was of the State where
sleeps a Jackson.
' I can't stand tills any longer, I

and if j'ou can love me as she loves
(pointing to tho bride,) I'll promise to

his wing. I further say tliat no spot

And his keen grey eyes ran slowly
and steadily over the crowd of hand
some Women around him ; the earnest
manner and novel speech liad aroused
an intense feeling ; and all wa3 sur

that as u may. when the watch
changed tit noon of night, the bluTfoa

oiily aa unbroken echo of tlie
hoarse coughing of the I'miiy I!::ir

I I iiaist tell you of the perils and
trial's I had to undergo to become a
Mason. Oa the evening ia -nestion. 1
presented myself at the door of the
lodge room. Xo. sigu of the
skull and cnns-boncs. 1 was conduc
ted to an ante-room where live or six
inelaneholv' looking1 chap! ia sashes
and embroidered napkins, were wait
ing to receive me, oa my entrance
they ii I i got up and turned back soaier
saudsand then resinned their seats. A
big fat fellow who sat in the middle,
and who seemed to be the proprietor,
said : 'Sinner from the other world,
advance 1" I advanced. ' Will you
give up everything to join us?" 'Xot
if I know if," 1 'said ; --there is my
wife and fourteen line " Another
party here told me to say '-yes," as. it.
was merely a matter of form ; so I
said "yes, I give up everything." The
fellow- in the towels then groaned
and said : ' i'is well ; do you swear
never to ivveal anything you see or
hear this evening to any human being,
or to jour wife?" 1 said: T'on
my word I wiil not."
j Tin y then examined my teeth, felt
of my tongu.', and then groaned
again. I said "If you don't feel well,
1 have got a little bottle here." Tlie
fat man then took the bottle away
from me and told me to shut up. lie
then i.i a voice of thunder said :
"Tiring forth the goat!" Another
fellow then com? up . with a cloth to
blindfold me. " Xo you don't, Mr.
Mason," 1 said : "no tricks oa travel
ers, if you please, I don't lielieve ia
playing blind man's bu if with a goat;
111 ride the devil if you like, but 1
don't go it blind ; stand back or Til
knock you into smithereens." They
were to much for me, however, so I
had to submit to being blindfolded.
The goat was then led in, and 1
Could hear him mak'mgan av. fuJ racket
among the furniture. I began to feel
that I waj urgently wanted sit home,
but I was in for it and could not help
myself. Throe or four men then seiz
ed me and with a demoniacal laugh,
pitched me on the animal's back, tell
ing me at, the same time, to look out
for squalls. I have been in many
scrapes; I have lken in election lights;
I have been pitched out of a four story
window ; I have gone down in a rail
way collision ; lait this little goat
excursion was ahead of them all. Tho
confounded thing must be all wings
and horns. It bumped me against
chairs, tables, and tlie ceiling, but I
hung on like a Trojan; it turned front
somersaults; 1 thought it was all
over with me. I was" just on the point
of giving up when the bandage fell
from my eyes, and the goat bounded
through the window witn a yell like a
Wild Indian giving up the ghost. I
was in a lodge of Masons ; they were
a war dance around
skull, plaj ing 'leap-frog and turning
hand-springs, and the big fat lellow
of the ante-room, was standing on his
head in tlie corner. '

Warded, Messrs. )rin Wardell (of
I oroato), and Daniel Kridenburg were
ingguig on the lurm of the latter pvii
tlemau. which is oa the banks of the
Grand lUver, in the township of Cayu
ga. When they had got five or 'six
feet In-low the surface, a strange sight
met them. Piled up in layers,"one up
on t op of the other, were "two hundred
skeleton of human beings, nearly' per
fect around the neck of each one be
ing a string of beads. There were al
t:o deposited ia this pit a number of
axes and skimmers made of stone. In
the j iws of several of the skeletons
were large stone pipes, one of which
Mr. O. Wardell took with him to Tor- j
onto a day or two tiller. . .. J
These skeletons are those of men of
gigantic structure, some of them meas
uring nine feet, Aery few of them
being less than seven feet. Home of
the thigh bones were found to be at
least lialfafoof longer than those at
present known, and one of the skulls
being examined, completely covered
the head of an ordinary person. These
skeletons are supposed to belong to a
race of people anterior to the Indians.
Some three years ago the bones of a
Mastodon were found imbeded in the
earth about Pi x miles from this spot.
The pit and its ghastly occupants are
open to the view of those who Jnay
wish to make a visit there. .
Dux villi-:, Au. 23.
There is not the least tlouWthat the
remains of a lo d city are oafthis farm.
At various times within the last .rear
t he remains of mud houses with their
chimneys have been found; and there
are dozens of pits 'of a similar kind to
that just' unearthed, though much
smallol-, hi the place which has been
discovered before, though the fact has
not lx-ea made public before. The re
mains of a blacksmith's shop, con
taining two tons of- charcoal and va
rious other iuipehneats were turned
up a lew months ago. The farm,
which consists of l."H acres, has been
cultivated '-for nearly a century, and
was covered with a thick growth of
pine, m that it mud- hive heen ages
ago that the remains were depo-ited
there. Tiu skulls of the skeletons are
of enormous size and of all manner of
shapes, about halfas large again as are
now to be seen. The teeth in most of
them sire still ia a a almost perfect
state of peservat ioa, though they soon
fall out when exposed to' the air. It
is supposed that tliere is gold and sil
ver in large quantities to be found
on the premises, as mineral rods luive
invariably, when tested, pointed to a
certain spot, and a few yards from
where the last batch of skeletons were
found directly under the apple tree.
Some large shells supposed to have
been used for holding water, which
were also found hi the pit, were almost
petrified. There vs no doubt that were
a scheme- of exploration carried on
thoroughly the result would le highly
interesting. A good deal of excite
ment exists ia the neighborhood, and
many visitors call at the farm daily.
The skulls and bones of the giants are
fist disappearing being taken away by
curiosity hunters. It is the intention
of Mr. Fridenburg to cover the pit up
f ery soon. The pit is ghastly m the
extreme. The farm is skirted on the
north ly the Grand river. The pit
is close to the banks, but the marks are
there to show whei-e the gold or sih-er
are supposed to be under.
From the apiearaace of the skulls it
would seem that their possessors died
a violent death, as many of them were
broken and dented. The axes are
sharpened like tomahawks, small, but
keen instruments. The beads are all
of stone,- anil of all sizes and shapes.
The pipes are not unlike in shape the
cutty pipe and several of them are en
