A Child of the Flathead Tribe. /? The number of Indians now collected was two hundred. The women were employed in drying salmon and the eammass-root. Some of them are employed in cooking, while others are engaged in dressing skins. The mode of removing the hair from the skins, is with a round and broad chisel, fixed on a handle, like an adze: the skin, while yet green, is laid on a log or board, and the hair chopped off. The smoking process differs from that at the Cowlitz. A large hole is dug in the ground, in which a lire is made; the skin is sewed on the inside of a bag, which is suspended immediately over the fire, so that little of the smoke can escape, and the process goes 011 rapidly. This process is nccessary, otherwise it would, on becoming wet, and drying afterwards, be hard and stiff. There were many children among these people. The young Indian women as well as the wives of the Company's servants, who have married halt breeds, invariably usa a long b?ard as a cradle, on which the child is strapped, and then hung up on a branch, or to the saddle.

Mr. Drayton, during his slay, was attracted one day bv the pound of beating sticks and a kind of un earthly singing, issuing from one of the lodges. On going to the lodge he found a boy, about eighteen years of age, lying on his back very ill, and in the last stage of disease. Over him stood a medicine woman, an old haggard-looking squaw, under great excitement, siuging. To which shout a dozen men and boys were beating time on the sticks, and sing ing a kind of "bass or tenor accompaniment. The words made use ot by the old squaw varied, and were any that would suit the case. She bent over Female the sick bov, and was constantly in motion, making all kinds of grimaces. She would bare his chest, and pretend by her actions to be scooping out his disease; then she would fall on her knees, and again strive to draw out the bad spirit with both hands, blowing into them, and, as it were, tossing the spirit into the air. Theeveningoi the same day, Mr. Drayton paid another visit to the same lodge, when he found the medicine-squaw much exhausted. She was blow ing with her mouth on his neck downwards, mak ing u quick sputtering noise. Costume. "While she was uttering this, a man was holding her up by a rope tied round her waist, whilp she. bending over tne body, began to suck his neck and chest in different parts, in order more effectually to extract the bad spirit. She would every now and then seem to obtain some of the disease, and then faint awav. On the next morning i-lie was still found sucking the boy's chest, and would frequently spit into her hand a mouthful of saliva and blood, which she had extracted from herown gums, and spread it with her ftinger over the palm of her hand, taking great care that all should see it. She would then pronounce the boy better, with apparent satisfaction. So powerful was the influence operated 011 the boy, that he indeed seemed better, and made endeavours to speak.

VTe had a moat formidable teetotal demonstration in town yesterday. Sunday is a quiet day in Wash- . ington, and tlie smallest excitement in the streets is 1 certain to attract great attention and a inotly crowd instantaneously, as if by enchantment. At about three o'clock in the afternoon, yesterday, when the guests nt Coleman's and Brown's were coming forth from dinner to the front stoops ofthose aforesaid ho tels, to pick their teeth, their attention was attract ed to a cluster of some titty individuals, in the leg islative process of organizing a meeting, across the way, just a door below John West's collee house.? We were not long kept in suspense as to the upshot of this invsterious and suspicious looking assem blage. The meeting was orgauized, and a song was sung in general concert by the company, with a chorus. " Oh I then resigu, your ruby wino, fCach mother's son and daughter, For there i? nothing half so good, F'or the youthful blood, Or so cheap as the sparkling water." The negro servants promenading the Avenue in their Sunday linery, were struck all of a heap?the young soap-locks came up full of wonder, putting away at their half-penny segars?maids of all work as they passed along, clean und happy, wondered if that wasn't the prophet Miller agoing to preach, be cause there was two comets and a circle round the ntoou 'tother night, which some persons said was a token of war, and which Squire Thompson said was a sign that the woild was agoing for to coine to an end. The occasional cluster of Irishmen, jog ging up town "for a bit of a walk, jist," stopped to ascertain if it wasn't a "Hepale" meeting, and be gan to damn Dan O'Connell as a trimmer and a fool of an Abolitionist?while some of our Methodist friends thought it was Mr. Brown, the Home Mis sionary, dispensing the bread of life to the flock in that dark corner of the Lord's ?ineyard. But Brother Brown, meantime, was at the market place doing yeoman's service against the bulwark's ot the " world, the llesh and the devil." All speculation, however, was cut short by the con gregation at the corner breaking out into a song as aforesaid. Hard looking men, and hard looking boys, to all appearance belonging to those noctur nal gangs of rowdies, so inimical to the peace of the city, were there, and kept dropping in, until quite a meeting was congregated to hear the doom and sentence ot King Alcohol. After several inspiring cold water songs. Presi dent Savuge, the indomitable Captain of the F. V. T. A. S., elevated on a store box, with his back against the deserted old shnntie, stated the object of the meeting, the object of the society, and th<? object of his spsech. We give from recollection an outline of his discourse, from the time of our arrival on the ground. PnF.sioriT Savage.?" Yes, gentlemen; we have n right to do it; we are American citizens, and, as such, it is our right to speak out, and to speak out boldly our sentiments on this subject. And I'm in the habit of speak ing out that way. Our fathers shed their blo*d for this right, ami we are not going to give it up. The rum-sai lers don't like it, I know, and you know that very well; but what can't bo cured, will '. i .eto be endured. They may get up a meeting to advocate the selling and swil ling of rum, if they chouse, und nobody will hinder them; but they are not going to scare us by their threats from telling the truth in the broad daylight. The selling of rum is the great ovil ngninst which we have set our laces, and we mean to fight out the battle while there i a rum shop in the capitol, or in the avenue, or in the na tion. We have nailed our (lag to the mast, and wo in tend to fight it out. But these rum-sellers don't like it, and we can't holp it; they are no better than pirates in principle; they prey opon the very heart's blood of the poo^ drunkard, and the bread or his family, and they got tat like vanipyres, from sucking the blood of weak and deltfflfeH mon. That's ttm sort of customers j our rum sellers arc. They neither regard the laws of Ood noi of the corporation?for the corporation lawn prohibit rum-selling on Sunday, and yet over theie (pointing to Coleman's,) and overthere (pointing to llrown's,) you may get your rum, in tlie back bar-room. They used to have their bar-rooms in front, but we've aade 'em move 'em back?over there you may get your rum on u Sunday. (Voice Iron a fat mau marked with the small pox?" hit em again right and left." Another voice? " Stop and let the man speak, will you.:') Yes, gentle man?we want these people to hear a little of our talk, aad I'm glad to see that they're listening. It will do 'em good?we want to do >m good. We want to stop this run-selling, and this rum-selling to genteel young mea on the Lord's dav, for if you meet a young man on Sunday with a clove in his mouth, he is just from the back bar of one of these fashionable hotel*. That's the way they do it. They have cloves to take away the smell ; but that wont take away the reproach. We must stop the business, if we want to take that away?atop it entirely. Nothiag but a baptism in cold water, and the cold water pledge will do it. Suppose we take a look at the ten commandments, anil soe how they will apply te the rum-sellers?these men who deal out poison by the tp'i worth, and smile as if they were not guilty ef mur der. What does the first commandment say : " Thou shall hare no olhtr Gods before me." How will that apply to the rum-sellers.' They have another Ood, and it is the God of Alcohol that they war ship. And we may say the same of their graven images; for they hare them in the bar, and around the bar, and the young men go there to worship instead ef going to Church. 3. ?' Thou shall net lake the nam' of the Lord thy God in ruin."' Listen ) e rum-s?)lers over the way (looking at Cole man's) to that commandment. They dont take the name of God in vain. Oh no ! (io into that bark bar, where you see those green curtain*, ami you will hear whe ther they do or not. Why it is the very essence of rum sucking?it will make a preacher swear?it promotes swearing, as every body knows, and even boys learn to swear with ajulap at their lips. 4. " Remember the Sabbath day. Io keep it holy." Do they remember the Sabbath?these rum-sellers ? Oh, yes. Vou may see them going to church (looking, down the \venue toward the I'nitcd States Hotel?the proprietors of which belong or attend regularly the ? liurch.) Yes, you may seu them going to Chuivb, w ith tiieir gilt-edged prayer books, and reading over the rrs|Kinse>, like good Christians; but they sell rum on Sunday. and I want to know if that is keeping the Sabbath day holy I o. " Honor tha father and thy mother." Does rum-sailing on Sunday look like honoring thy fatiier and thy mother > Is rum-drinkiug likely to make a young mHii honor his lather and his mother I No, no; you know better. It brings the grey hairs of many parents iu sorrow down to the grave, and we have seen the curse that it brings into lie family where it has become a habit, too often, to br ieve tnat selling rum on Sunday, or drinking it, will make a man honor his parent*. 6. " Thon shall not kill." Come out, ye rum-sellers, and answer the murders for which ye stand indicted at the bar of God. (The learned speaker recited numerous instances of murder committed under the influence of rum, ?ic. J The seventh commandment, interdicting adultery, wns rather delicate ground, and the speaker passed that by, to the (*th. " 'J'hou shall not ileal'' Vcs, but how will the rum-aclleri answer to that? They don't steal, but they sell poi>on, which steals men's brains away, and their money out ot their pockets, while their children are starving for bread; that's what they do And I have heard of two temperance men who have taken out a lirru?e to sell rum. What sortot temperance men do you call them ! Why, I'll tell you, the law or the penitentiary is the onlv tiling that keeps them from stealing. They would steal if a license could bo hud foi it Ves, it you could grunt a license for stealing, such men would bo the vary lint to take it out. They aro no batter than common thieves at the bottom, and they know it. 8. " Thou shall not hem false witness against thy neigh bor." Come out, ye iuin-scllera, and look us in the face, and say doe* rum selling promote obedience to this com mandment I No?it makes men lie, and swear, and steal, and kill, and break the Sabbath, and dishonor their pa rents, an I brings them down to the grave before their time, and to perdition before tha davil had a right to ex pect them It's a hell-filling, soul-damning. God-defying practice ; the selling of poison by the gallon, and tha pint, und the gill, for tha sake of the almighty dollar. Yes, " inonay is the root of all evil," for it's the root of rum-sailing, tha greatest curse ever invented by the agents of the davil. And io you might go through the whole decalogue. But I mentioned some of our fashionable rum-sellers go ing to church with their gilt-edged prayer-books. Just imagine them in the church and repeating the Lord's prayer. " Our father who art in llearm. Their father ! What right have they to call him fath er"1 The devil Ythelr lather, aad they know it, and ha knows it, and he wags hia tail and laughs in his sleeve when he sees those liunday rum-sellers, calling apon their father in Heaven. " Hallowd he thy name How will that sound, coming from a rnm-seller, in church, while his bar-keeper is dealing out alcoholic poi son by the gill, and while the vary sixpence he puts ; in the bag of the church is perhaps the prica of a wo- | man's tears, and her children's bread. " Thy kingdom come." Now', I like to see men practice what they preach ; and if these men want the kingdom of God to come, why don't they abandon the seivice of the davil ' < onsis teacy is a jewel; but rum-sellors|have no consistency, and talking of it before thorn ia like casting pearls before awine. 11 Thy will he dons on tart)i at it is in hearen. Yea, ye* ; hut while they mutter these words in church these rumseller* are not thinking of the souls damned by the poison they veil, but of the profit they are making from tliii infernal traffic, it is a beautiful idea to have God'a " will done on earth at it ii in heaven," by selling rum on Sunday. " Fortii t u< our tretpaiaei," 4 ? That's something that will apply to their case : but if they want forgiveness of what tiicy have done in the wajr of trespass, they must trespass no moie upon tne Sabbath, upon the commandments of Ood, and the laws of nei, and the bread of the children, and the peace of the broken heaited wife " -Jnii lead us not into temptation, but deliver us /rem teil," 4*c. Oh ! Lord, have mercy upon these rum-sellers ! -Lead ?? not into temptation." ' Why, how many young men do these ruin-sellers lead into temptation! Can any body tell the souls they will have to answer for 1 Look at theirsplendid bars, decorated with flowers, and paintings, mul gilding, and brilliant decanters, and marble counters. What is all that but leading men into temptation ' 1 re member last winter, coming down street one night, and over yonder, where you see those green blinds, at that stylish house, (pointing over to Coleman's) the blinds were up, mid a group ot boys were at that big window, and they had in the bar-room four or five Swiss woman, with harps, aad songs, and cymbals, while our young men, with their paste breastpins, and goat tufts under their chins, and dyed whiskers, were up at the bar drink ing rum, practising at the bar, bless you. What is all this hut temptation t And it was so day in and day out, uud night in and night out. Ves, many a poor fallow has been led into temptation by such devices. The eloquent orator continued for some time longer in his scathing denunciations of the rum sellers; when he called upon the company who had not sign ed, to walk up and sign the pledge of tetotalism. Rev. French S. Evans, once an itinerant Metho dist preacher, but for a number of years, sines he married a relative of Maj. Katon, a clerk in tho Treasury Department, where he has grown as fat and comfortable as an alderman, next addressed tho meeting in a stirring appeal upon all men to aban don this body-killing, heaven-defying, toul-damning habit of drinking rum. Judge Williams,of Iowa, a man of genius, and a great speaker in this great cause, begged oft' with an invitation to sign the pledge. Maj. Harknksn, one of our citizens, next spoke; after which the meeting adjourned till next Sunday, when they propose to meet near the United States Hotel, Jenkins'Metropolis House, Fitzgerald's, and several minor establishments in the immediate neighborhood; on which occasion another and more vigorous onslaught will be made upon the rum sellers. Mr. Savage, the speaker whose remarks we havo attempted to follow, we doubt not will endorse eve ry word that we have here placed to his account, though much of the pith of his discourse is neces sarily omitted. Mr. S. is a reformed rum seller, and we think he ought to have a little more charitr than he exhibits to men of the business in which he realised much if not most ol his property. But if he is satisfied with his own course, we nave no complaint to make. He does not tramp upon our corns. Such meetings as this, of which we have given the merest outline, have been hi-ld regularly onco or twire, or oftener, every week in this city, for several years past. Much good has been done in consequence, for many loafers have been converted into decent men; but still the ranks of John Bar leycorn are tilling with new recruits. Our tempe rance men must stir themselves, or King Alcohol will take the city, body and soul. W. The Last Days of General Jackson, [Krom the Nashville Union, June 21 ] If the earthly career of (Jen. Jackson had terminated with the expiration of his Presidential service, bis fame as a Patriot, Soldier and Statesman would have lived through all time There would, however, have been one defect in his character, which the friends of Christi anity might well have lamented?over all his noble vir ' tues there would have been absent the chastening and beautifying and sanctifying influence of Christian piety. But now it is matter ofneart-felt gratification with everjr Christian and patriot to know, that whilst his name will be a tower of strength to the lovers of liberty through all future time, it will also be a bright beacon-light, by which the teachers of Christianity can illustrate the tiuth of their religion. If the cause of patriotism and liberty triumr>he<T in his life, the cause of Christianity triumphed in bis death. Whilst others are engaged in eulogizing the noble deeds of the illustrious deceased as a soldier and states man. wo propose to finish off" the picture with the lese glaring, lint more beautiful colors of those silent and unobtrusive Christian virtues which gilded the evening of his life. l''or the details which we are about to record, I embracing the last two weeks of the eventful life of Oen. Jackson, we are indebted to the kindness of his affection ate son, who has furnished them at our request. On the Sabbath day, two weeks before his death, there was a communion of the Lord's Supper in the Hermitage Church. Gen. Jackson was unusually serious and so lemn in his feelings during the morning, and regretted exceedingly that he was unable to accompany his fami ly to church. He requested his daughter. Mrs. Jackson, to bring home with her the Rev. Mr. Lapsley, as he waa anxious onco more to partake of the sacred feast. As they were leaving for the church he took each member of the family by the hand.and invoked upen them all the blessings of (fod. After their return from charch, the whole family, with the Rev. Mr. Lapsley and Dr. Cur rev. assembled in his room : he was very feeble, but con versed freely on religious topics. He was cal > and re signed, and said he was ready to go whenever his Di vino Master thought fit to call him ; that he sutTered a great deal of bodily pain, but the Lord's will be done.? Me then partook of the Holy communion ; it was a so lemn scene, and rendered still more so by the confidence with which he referred to it as the last time he should enjoy the happy privilege. He spoke of his death as near at hand. but said that death had no terrors for him, coino when bo might. '? When I hare suffered sufficient ly, said he, the Lord will then take me to himself; bnt what are all my sufferings compared to those of the blessed Saviour, who died on the accursed tree for me? mine are nothing." Not a murmur ever escaped htai; he spent much of his time during the latter days of hie life in secret prayer. On the Thursday evening previous to his death he re I ferred to the blessed promises in the hymn, from which he repeated " When through the deep water* I call thee to go, The rivers of wo shall not thee overthrow." He quoted many passages of scripture, and conversed feelingly upon the holy invitations given by our Saviour for all to come unto him. About |-? o'clock of the same night his daughter was at his bedside, and inquired how he (elt. He replied, "pret ty comfortable, but I feel that I cannot be long with you all, and my request is. that when 1 depart hence, that you will send toi my old friends, Mujor Lewi* and Judge Camjpbell, (hut I fear, he suid, that Judge < ampbell is too feelde to come,) to make arrangements with my son for myfuneraL 1 wish to be buried in a plain, unostenta tious manner, without display or pomp."' He then rest ed for the night. The next day he was taken with rather an excessive diarrhcea, and said to his son that if it was uot checked it must soon take him off; and yet, he said, it would be dan gerons to check it, as it was nature finally giving way to tlie disease. Outing the day he conversed generally about his farm and business, nnd talked much of his be loved country, of the certainty he felt as to the annex ation of Texas, of the letters he had just received from our Minister to Texas?of the stand taken by his old, early friend and companion in arms, Gen Sam. Houston, on the subject, all of which convinced him that "all m safe.'' lie spoke also of our t >regon difficulty, and doubt ed not that the present administration would do its duty to the country, expressing the most abiding confidence in President Polk, but hoping and praying that the difficulty would be amicably arranged between the two govern ments ; but if not. said he. " let war come?there will be patriots enough in the land to repel foreign aggression, come from whence it may?to maintain sacredly ourjust rights, and to perpetuate our glorious Constitution and liberty, and to preserve our happy Union " In the evening of the same day his mind was so much engrossed with our foreign affairs, that he determined to unbosom himself in a letter to his faithful friend. Preai dent Polk? he wrote to him a long letter in relation to our foreign relations?it was the last Irtter he ever wiote, and breathed a degree of affection for the President, and confidence in his wisdom, which will make it an invalu able memento. On the next day he franked a letter to the Hon. Thos F. Marshall, of Kentucky, which was the last time he signed his name. DnrUg the early part of this day (Saturday) he felt comfortatde until he whs taken with a cold clammy per spiration?he regarded this as another indication that'the Imnd of death was upon him, but he received the sum mons with resignation and composure He conversed loss than he had done on the day prece.ling, but there mas the ;i-ne pious resignation running through his re mntks which had characterised all hi* conveisation for many days I,ate ill the evening Or Ksselman arrived, nnd tiied ineffectually to check the diarrhoea Karly on the next morning (Sunday) Dr. Fsselman waa called into his room, nnd In a short time the General faint ed away, and It was supposed at the moment that he was dead; but he revived immediately, and called all hi* lit tle grand-children, with the other memhers of his fami ly, around him?he took his grand-children by the hand, blessed and kissed them tenderly, told them that they had good parents, that they must be obedient children, keep holy the Sabbath day, and read the New Testa ment. His eye-sight had by this time become dimmed? his son took him by the hand and said ! " Father, how do you feel?do you know me r" He answered Know von ? Yes?1 would know you all, if I could see? bring my spectacles" He put them on and said t " Where is my daughter and Marian ! God will take care of you for me lam my Ood'*?I belong to him?I go but a short time belore you, and I wantto meet you all, while and black, in Heaven." He then said " What is the matter with my dear children?have I alarmed you ' Oh ! do not cry?lie good children, and we will all meet in heaven.' He then died away and expired calmly uad quietly, at 6 o'clock P. M. on the flth of Juno, 184A We have heretofoie given an account of hia burial? we have now only to add that the following will be the epitaph on his tomb stone : ? tsnmw Jacksox, Horn on the tftth of March, 1767.
