safe arrival, and it sermon was preached by
the Rev. ATr. Jones, (the Rev, Dr. Herbert,
who came with tho colony preaching thnt day
at Beaufort town.) There was a great rest of
tho gentlemen of that neiglibothooj and their
families, and a plentiful dinner provided for
the colony, and ull that came, by .Mr. Ogle
thorpe, being four fat hogs, eight turkeys, be
sides fowls, English beef, and other provis
ions; a hogshead of punch, a hogshead of
beer, and a large quantity of wine; nnd till wus
disposed in so regular a manner, that no per
son was drunk, nor any disorder happened.
On the HOlh, the Colony embarked on board
a sloop of seventy tons, nnd tivo pcriuugcrs,
and made sail, hnt were forced bv a storm to
pul in a place called the l.ook-Out, and to lay
there ull night. The next day they arrived
at John’s, where they round huts capable to
conluin them all, and it plentiful supper of
venison. They re-embarked the next day,
and jn the nffornuun arrived at the place in
tended lor the town.
Being arrived on the fir.it o] February 1733,
at Iho intended town, before night they erect
ed four large tents sufficient to hold all tho
people, being one for each tytliing; they land
ed their bedding, and other littlo necessaries,
and all the people lay ntt tho shorn. The
ground encamped upon, is the edgo of tho riv
er where tho key is intended to he.
Until tho 7tlt was spent in making a cratte
and unlading the goods, which done, Mr.
Oglethorpe divided tho people, employing part
in clearing land for seed, part in beginning the
palisade, and the remainder in fulling of trees

riix, in a laic issue, gives, in a communication
from a correspondent, it curious account of
certain mining appearances of an ancient cha
racter to ho found in that nation. The writer
reports himself to liavo visited Valley River,
in search of gold, where from reports which
lie had heard, lie felt disposed to visit some
cortam location upon the north .side of this
river, in which those appearances ore rnet.
The ridge in which they appear, is covered
with Indian tumuli, the skeletons •nly
partially conccnlcd by loose rocks from
the eye. In the immediate m ighhorhond,large
bodies of curt It have been thrown, evidently,
says our visitor, for the purposes of mining,
and ill search of some metal, lit supputt of
• his, n well of antique construction makes its
appearance near thirty Icet in depth—hern too
through tho ridge ur hill, runs a canal, six or
eight feet deep, about ten wide, utd thirty
vurds long. Two or three hundred yards dis
tunt and the mining evidences, broken by the
numerous t mult, re appear. Here we have
a pit of considerable depth; calculated to men
sure 30 feet in diameter. The earth is thrown
up around it, in such a manner und quantity,
as proves it to havo been tho result of human
labor. At a little distance, tho remnins of a
furnace ore found, convenient to a small foun
tain ul the head of n rnvino; nnd supposed to
havo been erected for the purpose of separat

in their nppearunec, and resemble nothing of

agree, that about one hundred yenrs ago. n
company of white people came over the great
waters in pursuit of gold and silver ; and that
they spent several months nt the above named
places.’ An old Indian who resided'within a
low miles of the place, says that he is one

the bottle, and was six days in the week most

that he was unfit for business till the next
morning. Tom was well aware of his infirmi
ty, and would never suffer himself to make e.
bargain, while in his cups.
One afternoon, a stranger called upon Tom
for tho purpose of purchasing a fine horse, of
which ho was tho owner. The gentleman in
troduced himself as Mr. Jcremtah Johnson,
and announced his business.

A Matrimonial Tale.—A fiddler and his
wife, who rubbed through life ns most couples
usually do—somolimas good friends, at other
times not quite so well—happoned one duy to
havo a dispute, which was conducted with be
coming spirit on both sides. The wife was
sure to be right, and the husband was resolved
to havo his own way. What was to be done
in such a case l The quarrel grew worse bv
their explanations, and at last their fury rnsc
*.o such a pitch, that each made a vow never
to sleep in the samo bed with the other for tho
future. This was the most rash vow that
could he imagined ; for they were siill friends,
nt bottom, and besides, they had hut one bed
in the house. However, resolved they wero
to go through with it, and as thoy had not se
parate hods, at night the fiddle caso was laid
between them; in order to make a separation.
In this manner thoy continued three weeks- ■
every night Ihe fiddle case being placed ns t.
harrier to separate them. By this time, how
ever, each repented of their voty—their re
sentment was at a:t end, and their love began
to return. They both wished tho fiddlu case
away, but eqclt had too much spirit to sumbit.
Ono night, however, as they were built lying
awake, with the detested fiddle case between
thorn, tho huahund happened to sneeze. To
this the wife, us usual in such cases, hid, Dear
bless hint!—Aye, but, replies tho husband,
“ do you say that from your heart, Jenny 1”
“ Indeed I do, my love, Nicholas.” “ If so,”
said tho husband, “ I fancy wo might as well
remove the liddlo case.”
