WIlMlll Tf T jlllfWtT 1155. JHV Mat of tka fkmi *rmti to ^?WWi ?n AnmtU^Dtcrea^e in Population, mi #e Vatm tf M? I ?$toto? Snake Mountain . Jtiatr Start** ? Migratory Habit* of Rattle titakm Mirlkplatt of Col. Blit* ? Anecdote of Gtn. !>#?. ? TWi place waa termed/ called Skeeneborough, in honor ot Mtfrt Skeene, ?n officer of the British mmj, to who* a patent of the land im granted. ragged aanntaia wbish bounds the village an Af AortiMast iv^Joown as Skcene'a mountain. On iMatdo ot tbio Mountain stood the house in which ?f^er Skeene redded. The site or it la atill pointed ?tit, though it ie now occupied by* more modern dwelling. Aatraage aaory ia told of an ingenious fraud per petrated by Major Skeene. An annuity had been bequeathed in England to hi* wife, to be paid to her. in the language ot the will, ao long aa ahe should remain above ground. It happened one day that Km. Skeene died. Her husband, unwilling to hare the annnit y cease, placed her in a lead coffin, with ? glass plate in it, through which ahe could be been, and kept her in the collar, but "above ground." Once a year he forwarded to Eng land the requisite affidavit of some {tenon that [be lad seen Mrs. Skeene at such a date, and that she was "a bo re ground;'' and the money was according ly paid over. .This fraud was practised a number of yean, until some kind neighbor communicated to the parties interested, in England, the whole story, and the annuity was of course stopped. TV population of this town baa diminished since the last census. and tbe value of real estate is much toe* t*?i formerly. The railroad is the cause of ibi*. Bc-ton thai was built seven hotels did a good fottunM> luiriw Now the number is reduced to two, mo? n Ui> tTHvel push.u<; directly through. But Tr? if*- reu estate in sn< ? .iiajie has diminished in walur farms It tin neiphboraood have increased. JVaiMjN- 11 tni prct* then tu.- really been no depre ciation. What but- been lost to one has been gained another. I have mentioned t iuu there are only two hotels. One of tneee? the Parke House? has recently been taken in charge by tbe proprietor, Mr. John C. Parke, an old resident, and the table is superior to the average of country houses^ Mr. Parke gives bis aknoet undivided attention to the comfort of his guests, and seems to under stand the fundamental rule of hotel keeping, name ly, to supply, rather than to regulate, the wants of his customers. On bis table may be found fresh ve getables, meats of superior quality and in grest va riety, good pastry, and if the tea and cofle are not precisely such as you would hud at a French restau rant, they are as good aa you generally get at a country hoteL It has seemed to me that a hotel might almost make a reputation out of the single fact of always furnishing a first rate cup of tea or coffee. About half a mile north from the village is a mountain, composed principally of a ledge of rocks, noted as the habitation of uluiont all sorts of snakes common to this region. There they congregate in the autumn?the rattlesnake, the black snake, the striped snake? and 1 know not how many other kinds? aud 'lie down, like lion and the lamb in Scripture, to gether. It was a custom to go out on this moun tain, in tbe spring time, and kill the serpents, when, in the first warm sunny days, they crawled out of tbe orevioeu in the rocks. Mr. Parke says that he has of ten caught the rattlesnakes in his hare hands, not even using the piecaution ot' gloves. Many ye.irs ago a man named lieldea was tamous us a snake hunter. 01' a sudden he was missing. Days passed and no tiding* came to his t-tricken family of the lout man. k inally he iva.< found dead, ying near the snake*' uen, his hulf decomposed body covered with rattlesnakes, cut up in pieces, which it was supposed be bad laid on to the bites that ne bad re ceived, te the hope that, in accordance with a pre valent oniiiion, It wuuld extract the poison. An oa mau who lives iu the village, Mays that He veral years ago he saw a ruttlesuakekiii a woo d chuik.un irninal larger round the body than a cat. The snake commenced swallowing hnn ? of course w ithout ma-tication? and at tue end of nine days the prtcet? of deglutiou was complete; the elastic btouuu h and body of the reptile having expanded in that length of time sufficiently to contain a sub- | fltanoe man/ times larger than its own ordinary di- | mentions. 1 onco killed a mottled water-make, in form quite similar to the rattlesnake, and Irom a sack iu its body emerged thirtj -dve young ones. I recollect, too, when a boy , finding a striped snake one day, wlien in company with my brother, just as its yonug were running down its tiiroat. Those inside and out, to gether, numbered thirty-two. It is well known that they art propagated by means of eggs -, but after the eggn natch, the young reptiles, on the approach of danger ran down the mother'* throat into a sack provided by nature, and they tlins protit by the sc penor wisoom of the mother in keeping out of Jourm'g way. A lady at present .residing here, tells me that a cousin of her h, a young lady, who was teaching nchool at the Went, received some extraordinary at tentions from a large black snake. She walked about a mile to the school bouse, which was situated in rather a secluded spot by the roadside. Every day at the do*- 01 school, the snake would come out from his biding place, a few rods from the school bouse, and as the teacher passed he would join her, ud lollow at a short distance behind her until she got turnout home. The next morning, a* she was on her way to school, at the spot where he turned off and lut h?r the evening previous, he woul J again appear tuid regularly follow her to the same point of departure, near the school house. This con tinued some time? the snake never offering to molest her- until, finally, she killed liiin. No mysterious tie bad Urn forced between them; and she suffered no wore inconveuience frota the summary termina tion of the acquaintance than any maiden would from despatching a hoau possef-Jug no power of fascination, by whom she was too Continuously per secuted. Hat ft was a tragic cud for On* who lovivl nr.t * l**ly, but too well The paper* aie dlscus-ing the question whether snakes ever hiss I have heat d them hiss a thousand ttmee, or leas. There is no question about the fact um negative testimony going for uothing, against so much positive evidence in support of my assertion, as can readily be adduced. Speaking of the Snake mountain, or den, near this plaoc , there is another interesting fact to which I will call the attention of natuiallsts. The rattlc eoakoe here migrate acmes i.ake Champlain every spring, and return in the fall. Scarcely one can l>e found cm the mountain in the summer. They may be see* as they Irave in the luring, and come l>acK in tbe autumn, swimming, or floating leisurely ou the lake, with two or three inches of both head and tall erect above tbe sui fiioo. The accomplished scholar and soldier, Col. Bliss, was born in this town, lu the front corner room, on tbe groond floor of a two story wooden house on the east side of tbe river, he first opened his eyes upon the light of this world. There has been consid erable dispute about bis birth place; but an old lady, still living ia this neighborhood, who says that ahe was pn?*nt on the interesting occasion, is my authority for the statement which 1 nave made. Undoubtedly much of the merit of General Tay lor' a Saisbed and beautiful despatches during Ins Mexican campaign belonged to Oulouel HI is*. Old Zack manifested his esteem for the Colonel, not only by the honors conferred upon him during the war, but by giving him his youngest daughter in mar riaft*. On one occasioa, however, be was reported to have spoken rather di?par*giagly of his eun-iu h?w. It happened in this wise The old flencral, labile occupying tbe White House had purd?*d a W>7 oow. He took great interest in everything pertaining to cattle, as aeil as agriculture, and at tveattf he waa superintending the milking of the flew bow, to we bow much die gave, a load of hay rkawwl to be pa/wing m from ot the public grounds, ami CoJooeJ Bliss, entering by the front gats at the moewel, eaiolemly left it open. The atw was h0B. fry, and la a rtrange place. Seeing the hay passing, with the way clear, she darted towards it, upsetting tbe pail of milk as ahe started. Old Zack followed, bear beaded, bis locks streaming in the wiud, and aome ladies who weir walking by at tbe time he ml him exclaim, " That d d lool of a Hiss ha- left the gate open and made iDe cow spill all her unlk.''

ItyB to the season for excursion! and picnics. ErVT *y P*rty is on the river. They ere nuwtij church and Sunday school societies, got up ostensibly to give the children an airing on the water during a pleasant day. A small steamer and two or three freight barges are chartered?the latter intended to accommodate the party, at treaty-five or fifty cents a passage. Each family, and some times two or three, join together, furnish their own provender, such as bread, batter, cheese, cooked meats, flee, cakes, and other etceteras of an innocent, palatable quality. The vessels proceed some twenty miles down the Hudson river, near the village of Coxsackie, where the party step ashore into a plea sant grove, open their baskets and carpet bags, re cline a Im Turk apon the grass, under the awning of the thick forest leaves, and partake of their variety of refreshments. The ministers, elders, Sunday school teachers, and other pillars of the church are always indispensably present. With them and their female companions the freedom of the picnic is universal; indeed, the parties who are honored mostly with their presence and their appetite are rendered the happier. There, however, is generally no distiiiction among the society on these happy days. The minister is as well pleased in conversa tion with sinter Lacy, of very recent conversion, as with I?ame Deborah, a mother in Israel? the rollick Lug, frolicksome damsel, castiug sheep:seyes over her shoulder, attracts the attention of the venerable deacons, with gayer couuteu&nces and lighter hearts, than the sober, sedate handmaids who are con stantly watching and praying and sighing over their manifold Bins. And whilst the older class of mothers and fathers are gathered io groups, thanking a merciful Providence for supplying theiu with sueu fine weather and exhiliratiug mountain air, the young oonverts, in pairs, generally agreeably well mated, are tented upon little hillocks in the reargrooud, over the knoll, or in the ravine, near the silvery gurgling rivulet, pouring into each other's ears and ejes the most convincing reasons why their two hearts should be cast into Cupid's ciuciuie and molted into one. The children of smaller growth, not afflicted with the palpitating hearts as yet of their older brothers and sisters, nor care worn concerning a future existence, are employed in skipping, gamboling und frolicking around and amoug the underbush, in the valleys on the hillocks, with the buoyuncy of a balloon, and tue agility of a deer. As no other thoughts enter their childish minds, except the occasion and the d.t>, these Sunday school children return to their homes at twdigh., with renewed health, revived spirits, cheertUl hearts, and enough to talk about uutil the next annual ex cursion and picnic comes around. But these healthful and laudable entertainments are only enjoyed by the children and i amities of the middling ctass of society, those belouging to or as similating with the Methodists and Baptists. TUese cheap excursions for a day are got up by the lead ing members for the beneht ot the poor portion of their congregations. There are no other me.ius within their power of having a single day of recrea tion, during the hot summer months, and with only one in the season they are abuudautly content. The other societies, the Episcopalian, Presbyterian, ard .Reformed Dutch, never think of treating the poorer members of their so cieties to any such entertainment, nor any at alL During the dog days, running into aouie six or eight weeks, most of their clergymen are in the country, at Saratoga, Lake George, Niagara, or at the oatn ing places on the sea coast, Two-thirds of the dea cons and ruling disciples are oil' witn their families during the same time, and their churches remain closed during the " hot season.'' The poor of such societies arc left all the while without the '? bread of life;" and should any be known to enter uuy other church, or enjoy a picnic in compauy witn cue poor Hnpti.-te and Methodists, a severe reprimand, and perhaps an expulsion to the " outer temple ' for a season, would likely be the conse quence. Whilst tho weather remains clear, warm and ple> ernnt, it is hoped these entertainments may be con tinued. They are conducive to the healtii of the body, invigorating to the constitution, retre^biug to the* mind, and congeuial with nature. Children, especially, should very frequently be exposed to the balmy breeze ot the waters and the refreshing shades of the mountain groves. Onr NlMlHlppI Correspondence. Hinds Countv, Miss., July ID, 1855 The Capital of the State ? Its Public Building* ? The Vicktburg and Brandon Railroad ? Cooper '? tVellt ? Remarkable Dream? A Southern Water ing Place, Qc. Compelled by circumstances to be a sojourner iu this delightful portion of Mississippi, aud having some little leisure at my command, 1 have thought a hurried sketch of some of the more prominent characteristics of this county would not be an alto gether unacceptable contribution to the Hkkald and without interest to its thousands of readers. The location of Hinds is ceutral, and It ranks de servedly high among the other counties of the State ?whether reference is had to the fertility of the soil, salubrity of the climate, or the geueral intclli gence of the citizens. Jackson, the capital of the State, an improving, business place, is located in this county. The Slate House, occupying a beauti ful eminence, handsomely ornamented with walks, trees and sward, and inclosed by a neat iron paling, presents a commanding appearance, and greets the vision lrom every part of ^ie city. The City Hall? a large, commodious building ? is now under going thorough repairs, aud when completed will be one of the handsomest ornaments of the city. The Executive muiwion, delightful ly situated in a charming grove of graceful phade trees, iy one of the few costly buildings of which Jackson can boast, and a lit dwelling for the Governor of a great State. Four or live newspapers, all edited With considerable ability und enjoying a lib* rat patronage, are published here; some oi tneiu are stiuulaid authorities with the partisan pre.is m d 10b rent parts ot the Union on the respective sides in jioli-ica which they espouse. The citizens of Jack son enjoy a high reputation for hospitality and a due regai d for those amenities aud courtesies so esaeniiai to social enjoyment; indeed, it Is a ut.aler of doabt, whether more brilliancy, talent and reiinement are embraced within the social circle of any place at equal size. At this writing Jackson is dependant, for transportation facilities upon the Viok-ourg aud Krandon Kail road, with the prospect of at.ll greater when the New Orleans and Jackson road reaches that point, which it will doubtless do at souie future day. Senator Drown is at this time lending tns powerful aid to that kn|tortant enterprise, making speeches along the line, enlisting the people iu its favor and netting sub-criptions to it. It is said he meets with the most grati lying success every where. A part of his plan is to get tne counties Interested in its completion to submit to a tax for the purpose of bmiuing it it .scouts to be almost reduced to a certainty tuat this rich and intelligent country will autnorue tne Uourd of Police to subscribe one uiiudred thousand dollars to a project so important to the convenience and in dependence of it* eitizeu*. K few days stnee a beginning was made in laying the tracn upon the Jackson and i'unton ltailr?ad, some thirty utiles long, which will be ready eaily in the fall to trans port merchandize, produce, ac., and will add also to the facilities of the ^tatc c tpiUl. Tnib is mteuded as an extension of the gnat Jackson aud New Or leans Railroad, and taps a m.l ><hi of country rich in ?11 the elements of traffic, /ho leading den^auna tions of Christisn* have churches here, a <<ple aud commodious, which are nlled upon each returning Sabbath with large aud attentive congregations. At tention is also paid to the cd.icatiouai interests of the people, though the eliorta to build up and sustain large schools have not, 1 believe, been as sucoessml as was desired.

A somewhat singular ense flame up nt the police office yesterday. A man about ibrty-five yeais of age, named Patten, wns brought up, chained with ue-ertiug his family, bis wile appearing an tiie com plainant. The fail uly consisted of the wii'C and three children, one an' minnt. The wile stated that Patten had left her without support, and wus co habiting with another .eniale, somewhat her junior, i'atten did not deny that he had t eased to live with hiH wife, aud had taken to his bosom another woman; b\t he attempted to show that his conduct had bo? n pioper. He then went on to state that many years since ? when tlr?t married ? he and his wife lived fcv gether in harmony, because their views on spiritual 1 1 in tu is coincided. He said, when the Becond Ad vent doctrine ? which the vulgar called Millerism? whs preached, he anil his wile both embraced the taith oi the Haviour. in later years, he became con vinced thai the seventh instead of the flrat day of the week was the Sabbath, and on this point his wile haimotiized, and all went on smoothly. About a year ago, a question came up as to th* re mii lection, and on this point they could not agree, lie concluded, after closely consulting hi* Bible, ihht the remriee.tion was ouly a spiritual one. Hih wile insisted that the body was to be raised also. Hew there wits an irreconcilable difference, aud one that I'atten thi.njfbt was sufficient to lead to a sepa ration. He said that he could not live with a wo man who did not harmonize with hi .a in his views on spiritual matters, and had, therefore, forsake;, his wife, aud found a female who thought as he did on this point Here the wife, who had list^'.ieJ 1 1 his statement vuy patiently, interrupted him, by saying that she thought the newly found fcnale flft'reeu with bim quite as well on carnal as on spirit ual matter*. Fatten said that could not be shown by evidence, and went on with his narrative, concluding by as serting that there must be harmony on spiritual things between man and wife to enable them to lire together. h< said he would not i.vt with a woman who did not ihink aa he did on religious {Ue-tioiia. 1 he magistrate required hiin to give bail for the ninintrnaice of his wife aud children, and threatened him wiUi another kind of punishment it he-violated the law in order to lire in "spiritual harmony" with a woman not his wile.
