A Washwotoit Medal Pcbchased from
Thb India**— Major-General John a San
born, when In this city a tew days ago,
sbowe'd us quite a relic of antiquity,wbtch he
procured from an Indian chief, at the ooud
eil at the mouth- of the Little Arkansas, and
for which he gave a horse worth $125. It
was a silver medal about six Inobes long and
four inches wide, of an oval shape; on one
side were the words in a circle ‘G. Wash
ington President, to Young King,” with two ,
figures, one of an Indian with his tomahawk
thrown on the ground, and in his band a
pipe, banding it to the other figure, intended
to represent a white prince with a crown on
bis bead; at the bottom was the date 1789.-
On the other side was a representation of a
shield and eagle; in one otaw was a bunch of
arrows, in tbe other a twig ; over the head
oftbe eagle were-twelve stars and the words
‘‘United States of America,” but no motto.
Everything about the medal showed its an
cient origin; the letters were old fashioned,
an l the representation of the eagle was un
nffciral and awkward, euchpa-a boy would
now draw—none of the life-like expreseioa
that the eagle has on the coin now—evident
ly work ot other days when engravingwas
not in its present degree of perfection ; but
seventy-six years make quite an improve
ment by the meohanioul arts— Lavrmee Jour

A Birmingham physiologist—one Dr. Ben
nct—has started the theory that there are
six senses instead of fire. ‘ ‘lf, ” says the doc
tor, “two cubes gilded over to look alike,
and made of the same temperature—the one
lead, the other wood—be laid before a man,
none of his five senses will tell him which is
wood, which is lead. He must feel their
weight; and it seems as if physiologists
would have eventually to agree to all this—
fog_g££»c_of_weight, the sixth sense.”
