All at once they ceased their visits, and

were his motives for holding that council.
The moment he made this demand the orator
sat down. The chief made no reply, but
hung his head in apparent confusion. Af
ter a moment's pause Duval proceeded:
"I am well aware of the meaning of thif
war council; and deem it my duty "to warn
you against prosecuting the schemes you
have been devising. If a single hair of a
while man in this country falls to the ground.
I will hang you and your chiefs on the trees
around your council-house. You cannot
pretend to withstand the power of he white
men. You are in the palm of thej hand ol
your Great Father at Waihinetonvhg can
crush you like an egg-shell! You may kill
me I am but one man; bat recollect, white
men are numerous as the leaves on the traes.
Remember the fate of your warriors whose
bones are whitening on battle-fields. Re
member your wives and children who per
ished in the swamps. D i you want to pro
voke more hostilities? Another war with
the white men. and there will not be a Semi
nole left to tell ihe story of his race."
Seeing the effect of his words, he conclu
ded ly app"iatiiis a day lor the Indians to
meet him it S. Marks, and give an aecoun'
of their cordurt. He then rode ofT, without
iririn them time to recover from their sur
prise. That night he rode forty miles to
