From ths National Intelligencer. | Early Sheriff* Sales. Superstition of the Seminoles. TxnLLbeaoidotithe first Tuesday in July next Tht process of ConittraJitm.-Holatoochee,i ™ ft”.,,?, a Cbiei in the Seminole nation, nephew to | tv to w!? ** ^ fcDown * Micanopy, their present King, and heir np- ty ’- to — parent to succeed hjm, returned to Florida from the Arkansas in the summer of 1840, and remained there about two years en deavoring zealously and faithfully to effect by peaceable means the removal of his red .brethren. Sometimes when bis pacific overtures failed, he took the field with the troops as a guide to the fastnesses of the hostile*, but be was never expected to Join in combat against them except in self-de fence. On his return from one of these expedi tions in January, 1842, he was taken sick. When innuirics were made as to the nature of his sickness, he informed the medical officer that lie believed he was made sick by the conjurations of the “Prophet,” or llotulco-hcdgo, the chief of the nostiles-— then supposed to be perhaps fifty miles dis tant in the Southern part of the “ Big Cy press Swamp,” bordering on the mangroves. Holatoochec is a very intelligent Indian, and, like most of the Seminoles, waggish and fond of a joke, and his statement did not fail to excite the mirth of the officers, who were incredulous to the sincerity of his statement. But he assured us that lie was not jesting; that he firmly (relieved it; that white men were entirely different from red men; that they were of different flesh and blood, and told us that wc were wel come to our creed, our manners and our philosophy) that they must be allowed also to cherish undisturbed their own man ners and peculiar faith. On being asked in what way the prophet so far distant was able to make him sick, he explained the process and ceremonies of the conjuration as follows: It is at night only that the conjurer can acquire a power over his victim. Wh'cn an Indian sleeps, his body alone sleeps; his spirit is roaming abroad over the face of the earth; and it docs not return to his body until the morning star rises. If before that star rises the conjurer can by his spell attract tho spirit of his enemy up to his own camp-fire, he may then torment and afflict him. To do this, he places a kettle of wa ter on the fire, puts in certain herbs posses sing wizard charms, and well might this sylvan conjurer then exclaim, as did the witches in Macbeth, “ Double, double—toil and trouble, Fire bum and caldron bubble." He then makes a statue of the victim, upon the heart of which is placed a tobac co leaf, and a splinter from a tree riven by lightning. This statue is first placed at a distance from the fire, and at certain stages of the conjuration is to be advanced four separate times towards the campfire, which is the centre of these and many other wild incantations. At each separate approach of the statue an invocation is made to the spirit of the victim, and if, when the fourth invocation is completed, the morning star has not yet rises, the spirit of the unhappy victim may, if the fates have frowned upon him, be brought up within the influence of the conjurer. It is, generally, certain old men, especi ally the “ medicine men,” of tho tribe who possess these powers of conjuration. They are practiced most in times of war, as a mode of tormenting an enemy. In war an Indian’s very soul is made up of stratagem and deceit. How untiring and sleepless is his vengeance, and how fertile in expe dients.

A LARGE ASSORTMENT OF Classical uintiyuities : Or a Compendium of Roman and Grecian Antiqui ties, with a sketch of Ancient Mythology. By Jo seph SaUceld, A. M. 18.-no. Handsome Sheep, 62 cents. E VERY teacher becomes a public benefactor in adapting the higher branches of literature and science to the circumstances and to the wants of those from wbum they have ordinarily.been excluded. Most of the works in use, which treat of the antiqui ties of Greece and Rome, are so copious and so inter mingled with Greek and latin quotations, that though they may be highly valuable to the classical scholar as works of reference, they are rendered less useful to the classical pupil as common text books. On this account, the study of classical antiquities has been mostly confined to the higher classes. The present volume is designed for general use in our common schools ; but it is believed to be so compre hensive and elevated in its character, as to be accep table in Academies and High Schools as well as Colleges. The present volume, wc consider a valuable intro duction to the study of Roman and Grecian Antiqui ties in a form more attractive than the other works now-in use. The work will he found eminently use ful in schools nd aothcr seminaries of learning. Protestant Churchman. ££aiu, ^ioemmctciaf one/ ot/ieb kind of BLANKS mil be kept constantly on hand.

But, as before stated, every power of in cantation ceases the instant the morning star rises. The spirit instantly glides back to the protection of its body, which is sup posed to have sympathized in all the Iron tiles of the ethereal essence. That beau tiful star is then not only a harbinger of the .glad approach of the god of day, surroun ded with all the glories of the mom, dis pelling the mists of darkness, and shedding joy and grace over the earth, but to these wandering spirits it imports a most welcome and sudden release from tho charms of the conjurer. Is it, then, wonderful that the red man should sometimes worship this bright Venus, this sweet disenchanter, this lovely companion of the sun, the first faint glimmerings of whose silver beams are a signal of so much joy to the dreamer. When it is discovered or believed that such arts are being resorted to in the camp of the hostiles, the old men of the tribe put their heads together to devise a scheme of safety. This consists in out-conjuring the enemy. Thus there arc what may be cal led defensive conjurations, which consist in efforts to confine the wanderings of the spirit to the neighborhood of tneir own camps, and if perchance its orbit should have become too erratic, venturing within the sphere of the opposite enchanter, to entice jt back again by counter spells to its own friendly and safer region of habitation. Thus, on this occasion, Holatoochec was much consoled a week afterwards when he met an aged Indian called “ The Old Doc tor,” who being famed in the art of conju ration, could endeavor to defend him and out-conjure the Prophet! The writer was witness to the above, and puts it on record, believing that such me morials of that wild tribe mav possess suf ficient interest to deserve to be preserved.

The originators of this work believe that the fid for literary exertion and influence, in our countiT.ii everyday growing wider and wider; and they’iit willing to occupy at least a portion of the grom 1 . which seems to invite labourers. The chiei objic which they have in view, is to aid in vindicating (ct the Southern States that literary position which, r is believed they are qualified to assume. They dt sign also, through this channel, to point out the re sources and defend tire interests of the South, to it present with truth the character and condition of lit Q lc, and to furnish increased occasion for intrilw- effort. With these views, they liave sought ti enlist in tire undertaking the best talent of tlic whdt South; and they feel, that they can appeal with some confidence to their fellow-citizens for support aa: co-oncniticm. This work will be Southern—it will be the orpi of a section: but in no narrow spirit of hostility t any portion of our country. Justice and candour towards all will govern its course; and it will stead ily pursue the sacred aims of Truth. There is need, especially in this day of cheap lit erature, for stern and discriminating criticism. Man liness and originality of thought—as well as some morals—are in danger of being crashed under tb mass of trashy or corrupt publications, both fom|t and domenstic, with which tire press teems. Thy call loudly for some daring and independent ccn<oi who will lay on the lash of severe but just critic i.-.- “ without fear or favor,” and who will guard tire in terests of literature against those influences of th publishing houses of the conntry which, throo;: magazine and newspaper puffing, confer so urn; false reputations on worthless volumes, and comrp tire very sources of a well regulated and wholcsoi: public opinion. We therefore avow at tile outs', that we intend to deal with these authors, publisher and books, with a severity only limited by our abl- ties, and a proper regard for the courtesies due ton enlightened community. We know and feel that omr literature is your; and hitherto bnt too imitative. Nevertheless tin’ very youth has its advantages, and wc shall endow to give them full play, by encouraging fresh and ri otous exhibitions of tho mind of our own country. That this is preeminently the land of origin! thought, our Patent Office, our workshops, our iiv& and our rivers abundantly illustrate. In the Fir* Arts, American genius has produced works of wbii which any nation might be proud. We ore alran' rivaling old Europe in every department of inve: tion, save only in that of literature. Even in tills an independent assertion of thought and feeling to commenced, which the American position and ebar acter demand, and are calculated to develops. M>: here stand to each other in new and advanced ret tions. An expression that shall be true to these cco ditioos, must give to onr literature new and origito forms. It will accordingly be one of the ebernb^ objects of onr Magazine, to foster by all the mesoi: our power, every impulse of native and original gt® ins.
