H. fl. in the X. Y. Independent.
When the English first entered Pennsyl
vania, messengers from the Conestoga In
dians met them, bidding them welcome
and bringing gifts of corn and veni&eu and
skins. The whole tribe entered into a
treaty of friendship with William Penu,
which was te last ' as long as the sun
should shine, or the waters run into the
The records of Pennsylvania history in
the beginning of the 18th century contain
frequent mention of the tribe. In 1705
the governor sent the secretary of his
council, with a delegation of ten men, te
held an interview with them at Conestoga,
for purposes of mutual understanding and
confidence. And in that same year Themas
Cbalkley, a famous Quaker preacher, while
sojourning among the Maryland Quakers,
was suddenly seized with se great a "con
cern" te visit these Indians that he laid the
matter before the elders at the Nottingham
meeting; and, the idea being "promoted"
by the elders, he set off with an interpreter
and a party of fourteen te make the jour
ney. He says : " We traveled through the
weeds about fifty miles, carrying our pro pre
visions with us ; and en the journey sat
down by a river and spread our feed en
the grass, and refreshed ourselves and
horses, and then went en cheerfully and
with geed will and much love te the peer
Indians. And when we came, they receiv
ed us kindly, treating civilly in their way.
We treated about having a meeting with
them, in a religious way ; upon which they
called a council, in which they were very
gMre, and spoke, one after another, with with
eutrany great heat or jarring. Seme of
tue most esteemed of their women speak
When asked why they suffered the we
n. ca te speak, they replied that "some
women were wiser than some men." It
was said that they had net for many years
dei.e anything without the advice of cer
tain aged and grave woman, who was
always present at their councils. The in
terpreter said that she was an empress,
and that they gave much heed te what she
said. This wise queen of Conestoga look
ed with great favor en the Quakers, the
interpreter said, because they " did net
come te buy or sell or get gain ;" but
came "in love and respect" te them,
"and desired their well-doing, both here
and hereafter. Twe nations at this time
were represented in this Conestoga band
the Senecas and the Shawaneese.
The next year the governor himself,
anxious te preserve their inalienable geed
will and te prevent their being seduced by
emissaries from the French, went himself
te visit them. On this occasion one of the
chiefs made a speech, still preserved in the
old records, which contains this passage :
" Father, we love quiet ; we suffer the
mouse te play ; when the weeds are rus
tled by the wind we fear net ; when the
leaves are disturbed in ambush we are un
easy ; when a cloud obscures your brilliant
sun our eyes feel dim ; but when the rays
appear they give great heat te the body
and joy te the heart. Treachery darkens
the chain of friendship ; but the truth
makes it brighter than ever. This is the
peace we desire."
A few years later, a Swedish missionary
visited them and preached them a sermon
en original sin and the necessity of a medi
ator. When he had finished, an Indian
chief arose and replied te him ; both dis
courses being given through an interpre
ter. The Swede is said te have been se
impressed with the Indian's reasoning that
after returning te Sweden, he wrote out
his ewu sermon and the Indian's reply in
the best Latin at his command, and dedi
cated the documents te the University of
Upsal, respectfully requesting them te fur
nish him with borne arguments strong
enough te confute the strong reasenings
of this savage.
"Our forefathers," said the chief,
"were under a strong persuasion (as we
are) that these who act well in this life
will be rewarded in the next according te
the degrees of their virtues. And, n the
ether hand, that these who behave wicked
ly here will undergo such punishments
hereafter as were proportionate te the
crimes they were guilty of.' This has been
constantly and invariably received and ac
knowledged for a truth through every
successive generation of our ancestors. It
could net, then, have taken its rise from
fable ; for human fiction, however artfully
and plausibly contrived, can never gain
credit long among people where tree in
quiry is allowed, which was never denied
by our ancestors
New we desire te propose some questions.
Dees he belive that our forefathers, men
eminent for their piety, constant and
warm in their pursuit of virtue, hoping
thereby te merit eternal happiness, were
all damned ? Dees he think that we who
aie zealous imitators in geed works, and
lnliuenccd by the same motives as we are,
earnestly endeavoring with the greatest
circumspection te tread the path of in
tegrity, are in a state of damnation ? If
that be his sentiment, it is surely as im
pious as it is bold and daring
Let us suppose that some heinous crimes
were committed by some of our ancestors,
like te that we are told of another race
f people. In such a case Ged would
certainly punish the criminal, but would
never involve us that are innocent in
the guilt. These who think otherwise
must make the Almighty a very whimsical
evil-natured being. Once mere.
Are the Christians mere virtuous, or,
rather, are they net mere vicious than we
are ? If se, hew came it te pass that they
are the objects of Ged's beneficence, while
we are neglected ? Dees he daily confer
his favors without reason and with se
much partiality ? In a word, we find the
Christians much mere depraved in their
morals than we are ; and we judge from
their doctrine by the badness of their
It is plain that the Indian chiefs speech
has been very much Latinized in the geed
Swede's hands; but if the words even ap
proached being a true presentation of what
he said, it is wonderful indeed.
In 1721 his excellency Sir William
Keith, bart., governor of the province of
Pennsylvania, went with an escort et eighty
horsemen te Conestoga, and spent several
days in making a treaty with the represen
tatives of the Five Nations, "the Indians
of Conestoga and their friends." He was
entertained at " Captain Civility's cabin."
When he left them, he desired them te
give his " very kind love and the love of
all our people te your kings and te all their
people." He invited them te visit him in
Philadelphia, saying "we can provide bet
ter for you and make you mere welcome.
People always leceive their friends best at
their own homes." He then took out a
coronation medal of the king, and present
ed it te the Indian, in these words : " That
our children when we are dead may net
forget these things, but keep this treaty
between us in perpetual remembrance, I
here deliver te you a picture in geld, bear
ing the image of my great master, the king
of all the Euglish. And when you return
home, I charge you te deliver this peace
into the bands of the first man or greatest
chief of all the Five Nations,whom you call
Kannygoeah, te be laid up and kept as a
token te our children's children that an
entire and lasting friendship is new estab
lished forever between the English in this
country and the great Five Nations."
At this time the village of Conestoga
was described as lying "about seventy
miles west of Philadelphia. The land
thereabout being exceedingly rich, it is
new surrounded with divers fine planta
tion and farms, where they raise quanti
ties of wheat, barley, flax and hemp, with
out the help of any dung."
The next year, also, was marked by a
council of great significance at Conestoga.
In the spring of this year an Indian called
Saantcenee had been killed by two white
men, brothers, named Cartlege. At this
time it was net only politic, but necessary
for the English te keep en geed terms with
as many Indians as possible. Therefore,
the old record says "policy and justice
required a rigid inquiry " into this affair
and the infliction of "exemplary punish
ment." Accordingly, the Cartledges were ar
rested and confined in Philadelphia, and
the high sheriff of Chester county went,
with two influential men of the province,
te Conestoga, te confer with the Indians
as te what should be done with them. The
Indians were unwilling te decide the mat
ter without advice from the Five Nations,
te whom they owed allegiance. A swift
runner (Satchecche) was therefore sent
northward with the news of the occur
rence ; and the governor, with two of his
council, went te Albany te hear what the
Five Nations had te say about it. What
an inconceivable spectacle te us te-day !
The governments of Pennsylvania and
New Yerk se fully recognizing an Indian
te be a "person," and his murder a thing
te be anxiously and swiftly atoned for, if
Only a little mere than a hundred and
fifty years lie between this murder et
Saantcenee in Conestoga and the murder
of Big Snake at Fert Rene, Indian Terri
tory, in 1880. Verily, policy has kept a
large assortment of spectacles for justice
te leek through in a surprising short
space of time.
On the decision of the king and chiefs
of the Five Nations hung the fate of the
murderers. Doubtless, the brothers Cart
ledge made up their minds te die. The
known principles of the Indians in the
matter of avenging injuries certainly left
them little room for hope. But, no ! The
Fve Nations took a different view. They
" desired that the Cartlcdges should net
suffer death ; and the affair was at length
amicably settled," says the old record.
"One life," said the king, "en this occa
sion, is enough te be lest. There should
net two die."
This was in 172?. In 17C3 there were
only twenty of these Conestoga Indians
left seven men, five women and eight
children. They were, still living in their
village en the Shawnee Creek, their lands
being assured te them by manorial gift ;
but they were miserably peer, earned by
making brooms, baskets, and wooden
bowls,a part of their living and begged the
rest. They were wholly peaceable and un
offending, friendly te their white neigh
bors, and pitifully clinging and affectionate,
naming their children after whites who
were kind te them, and striving in every
way te show their gratitude and geed will.
Upen this little community a band of
white men, said by some of the old records
te be "Presbyterians, "from Paxton, made
an attack at daybreak en the 14th of De
cember. They found only six of the In
dians at home three men, two women
and a boy. The rest were away, ejjher at
work for the white farmers or selling
their little wares. " These peer, defense
less creatures were immediately fired
upon, stabbed and hatcheted te death.
The geed Shcbaes, among the rest, cut
te pieces in his bed. All of them were
scalped and otherwise horribly mangled.
Then their huts were set en fire and most
of them burnt down. "
" Shebaes was a very old man, having
assisted at the second treaty held with Mr. J
Penn, in 1701, and ever since continued a
faithful friend te the English. He is said
te have been an exceeding geed man, con
sidering his education ; being naturally of
a most kind, benevolent temper. "
Frem a manuscript journal kept at the
time, and belonging te the great grand
daughter of Rebert Barber, the first set
tler in Lancaster county, are gathered the
few details known of this massacre. Seme
of the murderers went directly from the
scene of their crime te Mr. Barber's housed
They were strangers te him ; but with the
hospitality of these days, he made a lire
for them and sat refreshments before
" While they warmed themselves they
inquired why the Indians were suffered te
live peaceably here. Mr. Barber said they
were entirely inoffensive, living en their
own lands and injuring no one. They ask
ed what would be the consequence if they
were all destroyed. Mr. Barber said he
thought they would be as liable te punish
ment as if they had destroyed se many
white men. They said they were of a
different opinion, and in a few minutes
went out. In the meantime two sons of
Mr. Barber's, about ten or twelve years
old, went out te leek at the strangers'
horses, which were hitched at a little dis
tance from the house.
"After the men went, the boys came in,
and said that they had tomahawks tied in
'heir saddles, which were all bloody, and
that they had Christy's gun. Christy was
a little Indian boy about their own age.
Tney were much attached te him, as he
was their playmate and made bows and ar
rows for them."
While the family were talking ever this,
and wondering what it could mean, a mes
senger came running breathless te inform
them of what had happened. Mr. Barber
went at once te the spot, and there he
found the murdered Indians lying in the
smeuldering ruins of their homes, " like
half consumed legs." He "with some
trouble, procured their bodies, te adminis
ter te them the rights of sepulcher."
" It was said that at the beginning of the
slaughter an Indian mother placed her lit
tle child under a barrel, charging it te
make no noise ; and that a shot was fired
through the barrel, which broke the child's
arm, and still it kept silent."
The magistrates of Lancaster, shocked,
as well they might be, at this frightful
barbarity, sent messengers out immedi
ately, and took the remaining Indians,
wherever they, were found, brought them
into the town for protection, and ledged
them in the newly erected workhouse or
jail, which was the strongest building in
the place. The governor of Pennsylvania
issued a proclamation, ordering all judges,
sheriffs, etc., and " all his majesty's
liege subjects in the province," te make
every effort te apprehend the authors and
parpetraters of this crime, also their abet
tors and accomplices. But the " Paxton
Beys" held magistrate and governor
alike in derision. Twe weeks later they
assembled again, fifty strong, rode te Lan
caster, dismounted, broke open the doers
of the iail and killed every Indian there.
" When the peer wretches saw they had
no protection nigh, nor could possibly
escape, and being without the least weapon
of defense, they divided their little fami
lies, the children clinging te their pa
rents. They fell en their faces, protested
their innocence, declared their love te the
English, and that in their whole lives they
had never done them injury. And in this
posture they all received the hatchet.
Men, women and children were every one
inhumanly murdered in cold bleed.
" The barbarous men who committed the
atrocious act, in defiance of government,
of all laws, human and Divine, and te the
eternal disgrace of their country and
color, then mounted their horses, huzzaed
in triumph,as if they had gained a victory,
and rode off unmolested. "The
bodies of the murdered were then brought
out and exposed in the street, till a hole
could be made in the earth te receive and
cover them. But the wickedness cannot
be covered, and the guilt will lie en the
whole land until justice is done en the
muruerers. The bleed of the innocent
will cry te heaven for vengeance."
These last extracts are from a pam
phlet published in Philadelphia at the
time of the massacre ; published anony
mously, because " se much had fear seized
the minds of the people " that neither the
writer nor the printer dared te give " name
or place of abode."
There are also two private letters still
preserved which give accounts of the
affair.' A part of one from William
Henry, of Lancaster, te a friend in Phila
delphia, is given in " Rupp's History of
Lancaster County." He says : " A regi
ment of Highlanders were at that time
quartered at the barracks in the town ;
and yet these murderers were permitted te
break open the doers of the city jail and
commit the horrid deed. The first notice
I had of the affair was that, while at my
father's store near the court house, I
saw a number of people running down
street, toward the jail, which enticed me
and ether lads te fellow them. At about
six or eight yards from the jail we met
from twenty-live te thirty men, well mount
ed en horses, and with rifles, tomahawks,
and scalping knives, equipped for murder.
I ran into the prison yard, and theie eh !
what a horrid sight presented itself te my
view. Near the back deer of the prison
lay an old Indian and his squaw, particu
larly well known and esteemed by the peo
ple of the town, en account of his placid
and friendly conduct. His name was Will
Sec. Around him and his squaw lay two
children, about the age of three ycais,
whose heads were split with the tomahawk
and their scalps taken off". Toward the
middle of the jail yard, along the west side
of the wall, lay a stout Indian, whom I par
ticularly noticed te have been shot in tiie
breast. His legs were chopped with the
tomahawk, his hands cut oil', and finally a
rifle ball discharged in his mouth, se that
his head was blown te atoms, and the
brains we splashed against and yet hang
ing te the wall for three or four feet
around. This man's hands and feet had
been chopped .off with a tomahawk. In
this manner lay the whole of them men,
women and cluldrcn spread about the
prison yard, shot, scalped, hacked and cut
After this the governor of Pennsylvania
issued a second proclamation, still mere
stringent than the first, and offering a re
ward of $G00 for the apprehension of any
three of the ringleaders.
But the " Paxton Beys" were new like
wild beasts that had tasted bleed. They
threatened te attack the Quakers and ail
persons who sympathized with or protected
Indians. They openly mocked and derided
the governor and his proclamations, and
set off at once for Philadelphia, announc
ing their intention of killing all the Mora
vian Indians who had been placed under
the protection of the military there.
Their march through the country was
like that of a band of maniacs. In a pri
vate letter written by David Rittenhouse
at this time, he says: "About fifty of
these scoundrels marched by my work
shop. I have seen hundreds of Indians
traveling the country, and can with truth
affirm that the behavior of these fellows
was ten times mere savage and hiatal
than theirs. Frightening women by run
ning the muzzles of guns through windows,
hallooing and swearing; attacking men
without the least provocation, dragging
them by the hair te the ground and pre
tending te scalp them ; sheeting dogs
and fowls these are some of their ex ex
pieits." It is almost past belief that at this time
many people justified these acts. An
Episcopalian clergyman in Lancaster
wrote vindicating them, "bringing .scrip
ture te prove that it was right te destroy
the heathen:" and the "Presbyterians
think they have a better justification
nothing less than the Werd of Ged," says
one of the writers en the massacre.
" With the scriptures in their hands and
mouths, they can set at naught that ex
press command ' Theu shall de no mur
der,' and justify their wickedness by the
command given te Jeshua te destroy the
heathen. Horrid perversion of scripture
and religion, te father the worst of crimes
en the Ged of Leve and Peace !" It is a
trite saying that history repeats itself ;
but it is impossible te read new these
accounts of the massacres of de
fenseless and peaceable Indians in
the middle of the 18th century with
out the reflections that we ourselves are
leaving the record of the 19th blackened by'
the same stains. What Pennsylvania
pioneers did in 17G3 te helpless and peace
able Indians of Conestoga, Colerado pion
eers did :n 1864 te helpless and peaceable
Cheyennes at Sand creek, and are appar
ently ready te de again te helpless and
peaceable Utes in 1880. The word "ex
termination" is as'ready en the frontiers
man's tongue te-day as it was a hundred
years age ; and the threat is mere portent
ous new, seeing that we are, a by whole
century of prosperity, stronger and mere
numerous, and the Indians are, by a whole
century of suffering and oppression, fewer
and weaker. But our crime is baser and
our infamy deeper in the same proportion.
