Louisiana Sugar Bowl : Mr. John Avery, of Petite Anse Island, who called at our office yesterday morning, Informed us that the work of sinking a second shaft, at the salt mines, is progressing, and that many curiosities have been unearthed, among them the bones of mastodons, which must have been of whaling size, and a carved out bone, in the shape of a crane's head, but much larger, with pebbles representing the eyes, and is supposed to have been an idol of the aboriginals.
