From the Ohio cultivator.
Over the Way.
One morning of the rosy June,
At my accustomed place,
I missed, at yonder window,
A sweet, familiar face
Mi.ssod a pair of while hand, sew lug
Dainty biu of lace !
Many times I looked oat wandering
At the window there
Vhy the heavy, drooping curtains,
Shut out light and air,.
Why a durki-ned, mystic quiet,
Brooded over there. '
Was it thns, the pleasant vision,
That 1 loved to see
That I saw and greeted daily,
Ne'er again should be.
By that shaded casement, tewing
Ever constaotly T
Days and weeks weut by, and oyer
Looked I forth in vain;
Till one morning, when the sunshine
Sparkled tUrouch the rain.
Yonder at the window, looked out
That sweet face again.
By and by, the saib was lifted,
But the sti anger there
Held no work of snowy ronsllo,
lu her rocking chair,
Cut a pile of reitleu flannel,
Very soft aud fuir !
Ne'er I've seen that precious bundle,
Since that bright June dy,
So I cunnot tell its contents,
But, if I durcd, I'd say,
A claimiiant for that duinty sewing,
Was a baby o'er the way 1
Brady's Leap. BY EMERSON BENNETT.
During the cerly Bcttlumente iu the west
era port of Pennsylvania and the north
western portion of Virginia, tho hardy ad
venturers luto thucO thcu wildenivss toli
tudes at times suCcicd severely from the in
cureious of the Indians. As early as 1780,
quite a large tody of worriers, from the
vicinity of ttii! Cuyahoga J. ails, came sud
denly tlowu upou tlie unprotected froutier,
and, before any check could be put to their
ravages, succeeded in murdering aud plun
dering quite a number of the whites, aud
elTucting their retreat iu safety.
At thi tiiuo there was a well-auowii In
dian hunter ia that vicinity, ouo Ciptaiu
Samuel Brady, whose many daring exploits
ud hair-breadth escapes had rendered him
as famous throughout that rcgioa as his
coutcuporary, the celebrated Daulel Boon,
was iu Kentucky; . aud heviug under lis
leadership a goodly number of as brave and
dariHg spirits as hiujoclf, he at ouca called
theta Ugetber, selected a certuia number
for the exiedaiou, aud set out on the trail
of the savages, hoping to overtake them
aud iuttict severe chuiiiiemeut before
they should reach their viiUjc- " ' .
lu this respect, htwtver, the csptaluand
bis frieuds were disappoiuted, for the la
diaus had gained a Start whicb euablcd theui
to reach their tovus n advaucs of their pup
suersj but as tbuy belonged to diffeieut
tribes, it was discovered that they aepara
ted co the bauk of the Citytboga, one part
crossing: it od goiuu toihe uoiihward, aod
the other turning off to the westward, as
it was BiipposcJ to the Fulls, where It , was
known there w as a villnge.
This division of tlie Indians rendered it
necessary for the whites, if they w ould fol
low each trail, to divide their force also,
which would weaken it materially, and ren
der their further pursuit still more hazard
ous; and in view oi this new danger, Cap
tain Brady stuted the w hole matter fuirly
to his. companion, end inquired of them
whnt they were disposed to do uudct- tho
Should they follo-.v either one of tlie
trails, he said, tho other hulf of the Iudiains
Would escnpe; should they follow uoither
one, all w ould escape, and should they di
vide, each division would bo comparatively
small, and they might all be eut off iu de
tail; therefore it was for them to ehooso
whether they would go forward lu one par
ty ot two, or return as they were without
striking a blow.
. The men were not long in deciding; they
were unanimous in their desire to pu.sti for
ward aud tuke vengeance upou the enemy;
they also preferred a division of tho puny,
and Accordingly about one-half of them im
mediately crossed tlie river and set off to
tho northward, while the remainder, under
Captain lirndy, followed the westward trail
to the Cuyuhoga Full.
It was the design aud expectatiou of the
galiuut ciuiluiu to take the ludiaus by sur
prise; but the latter, expecting to be pur
sued by the whiten, were prepared to re
ceive them and it was only by a mere acci
dent that the borderers were saved from
fulling into an ambuscade which would have
proved l'utal to all.
Seeing that the Indians were fully pre
pared for tucinlhat there wus no chance
of taking them by surprise that their num
bers were at least four timed us many as
their own our friends judiciously deter
mined upon a retreat; but they bad uct
gone far when the Indians, uttering their
wildest wur-wlioop?, tet after them in a
Knowing that if bis racu continued to
gethcr, there would be uo hope for any Of
them, Captain Brady, in order to save as
many-lives ns possible, culled ont to them
to disperse iu every directiou, and each man
to look out for himself. By this means he
expected to divide tho Indian into small
parties iu their pursuit of single individuals;
and this might huve beeu the result, had
they not, anforlanaiciy for his own safety,
discovered in hiin their most vindicative and
troublesome foe, and at once resolved upon
his capture. -
Captaiu Brady was well known to the
Indians, iu former times ho had hunted with
them over these very grounds; but he had
subsequently become their most implacable
enemy, nud had done them so much injury
us to create in them a fiendish desire- to
tuke him alive ai.d put him to the torture
they well knowing that the accomplish
ment of this purpose would not only rid
them of the man they both hated and fear
ed, but wpuld deprive the whites of their
bravest and most during leader, and would
thus strike a jnore effective blow against
the latter, thau would tho destruction of a
dozen or twenty men of lesser note. For
this reason, therefore, the moment it was
ascertained that he was one of the party,
his captore was determined ou by all, uud
turning from the pursuit of the others, tho
w hole yelling crew set after him.
Captaiu Brady bad something of the start,
aud wus one of tho fleetest ruuucrs on the
border; that be could distance aud escape
from a few, he was sauguiue enough to be
lieve: but when be found himself recog
nized, and looking behind hiin, saw the
whole body in chase of himself, his very
heart seemed to die within him. AVhet
chance had he of escape indeed-'-single
banded and alone afar from the refuge of
a i .i r P. s
ereu a wnaeruess ron ana wun uuy miu
riuted Iudians in hot pursuit, urged on by
a spirit of revenge, above every other earth
ly consideration upon taking him alive or
But the captaiu wus a bravo man, and a
brave man dies bnt once; be was a sanguine
mau, too, and would not consider his case
hopeless while the freedom of bis limbs re
mained j and though, as bo afterwards ex
pressed It, "it was hardly oue chance in fif
ty, yet be was determined to do bis best,
aud have uo fault to fiud with himself fi om
a lack of effort.
Near the poiut where the race first start
ed, the Cuyahoga makes a bend to the South,
so as to ueurly enclose an area of several
square nvlcs in the form of a peninsula; the
direction taken by Brady soon brought him
within this enclosure; and the Indians, by
cxtcuding their line to two banks of the
stream, at the point where they most nearly
approach each other, considered hiin as iu
a net 1 and announced their satisfaction by
yells of triumph. There was now, in fact
no chance for him to escape except through
their lines or act oss the Cuyahoga river;
and considering that the foremost pursuers
were not fifty yards behind him, either of
these chances wus regarded by the savages
as an Impossibility.
Still the bardy and gallaut captain did
net despair; be had mauy a time hunted
over this very ground, and knew every inch
of it, end all the windings, turning's, and
iieculiiiritito of the river u. well as the Iu
i, -i i i
tiiuiis iuemscivc: ne anew, loo, mere was
one point where the river, compressed with
in a few feet; rushed roaring and foaming
through a rocky gorge; and it at once ou
curred to hiin to bhape bis course for this
point, end make a bold, desperate leap for
tbs other shore. - lie might full short, aud
be dashed to pieces upou the rocks beneath,
It was true; but tils would only be a quick
and sudden death: the awful tortures of
the stake awuited blot if taken alive; aud
to tako bint aliva was unquestionably the
design of his pursuers, since they bad teg
lected to fire upon bits from a distance
which would have made their aim fatal
, Casting away his rtSu, as only an locum-
Iterance w&icn would not serve htm la this
strait, be bounded forward with renewed
energy and w ith a bare hope of life be
fore him, be Ccd with a speed that few
could fqual slightly galuiujj upon the
the fleetest of kid foes but not snUlcientty,
during the w hole race, ta take Mm beyond
the easy reach of a rifle laU.
Jfssrer and uearer be came to, the ruob
Ir.g and foaming atreaia ; eu4 aa be fcesrd
the roar of the waies, aod &ayr that bat a
few seconds could iotervee btwcea the
present and tba awful leap which might
save or destroy bim, bis brmrt beat wildly,
and bid whole frame seemed to tremble with
the Intense concentration of b!s tui.id upon
the fearful veuture.
Nearer" and nearer be came; louder vtrew J
the roar of the waters; the awful chasm '
gradually yawning before him, and the
white rpray of the fearful torrent rising tw
his view; the Indians Vellimr behind: and
his ouly hope here; aud then contracting
hia muscles, as his IVet tightly preasod tho
precipitous rock, ond throwing iuto them
all the power of bis concentrated will, he
leaped into the air, like a bounding ball,
and landed, aafely upon the other rocky
verge of the abyss, striking a little below
the height from w hich be -pnnig; but paus
ing a clear distance of twvuty-two feet be
tween the mural shores.
Instautly grasping some bushes which
fringed tho verge of the awful chasm, to
prevent himself from fulling backward into
the seething strcuai, the gallant captaiu
stood for a few moments panting from bin
exertions, and striving to recover bin breath
for still another flieht.
In those few moments the Iudians ap
peared upon the opposite bluff; expecting
to find that he had been dashed to pieces
upon the rocks below; bnt ou diseoveriug
him Mifely on the opposito side; their us
tonibhuieiit was so .great aa iuvoluuiarily
uud simultaucously todruw from them some
two or three short, approving whoops for
getting iu their first surprise that he was
clearly beyond their reach, and not seeming
to recollect it till he bad begun to vigorous
ly climb tho ridgo above him iu bis further
efforts ot escape. Then drawing up their
rides, with a quick aim, they poured iu
upou him somethiug like a regular volley,
most of the balls whistling closo around
him, and ono of them lodging i bis hip,
and inflicting a severe aud painful w ound.
Notwithstanding tliM, the ifallant fellow
continued bis asccut, uud, on reaching the
top of the ridge gave a yell of deiianeo,
and disappeared ou tho other side. - -
Captaiu Brady was now aware that the
Indiuns would have to make a considerable
circuit lu order to reach him ; and bad be
not beeu so severely wounded; he would
have considered his escape u almost cer

The Ocean Telegraph. Mr. Field's Account of the Laying of the
Cable—His Arrival at Trinity Bay—Operators
Asleep—He tests the Insulation by
his Tongue—Is Knocked over—Is another
Cable to be Laid?
From the N. Y. Tribune, Wednesday evening.
' Mr. Field describes the foiling whicb
pervaded all oa board tba Niagara wbilo
tho cabla was being laid, as one of the
most intense excitement. Every man ex
erted himself to the utmost to achieve suc
cess in the work. Throughout the six and
a hulf days the most perfect sileuco and at
tention prevailed among the men, lest a
siugla moment of negligence should destroy
tba oablo. ' On the first day after paying
out began It was found that tba cabla was
being paid out tt ft rata whicb, in proper
tioa to the distance run. would. If contin

This was owing ta tha fact thai tba ca
ble oa tha Niagara bad caused so much lo
cal attraction aa to seriously derauga tha
compasses, rendering It impossible to steer
the ship. Next day tha commander of tbs
Qorgoa being apprised vt tha fact, ra
ahad of tba Niagara, steering ia the most
direct, course for Trinity Bay. This be
continued to do day and night until they
arrived, never leavieg the deck exoept for
a few taomeutfi, and aryioj bis jvonitloa
by repeated ohaarvatiuns by tha sun, moon
aud stars. Ta his agency therefor tbe
success of tlie acWeveoieatjs greatly Indebt
When bis arduous task was accornplisli
ed, his eyes were swollen and scffiirted with
Mood fr'ra long loss of sleep, aud he was
almost prostrated from the immense fa
tigue which ho bad undergone. Without bis
assist once the Cable would have beeu' ex
hausted long beforo the Niagara reached
land, and to bis agency, therefore, the suc
cess of the achievement is largely Indebted.
Mr. Field lauded near the Telegraph
station, Trinity Bay, at 2 o'clock, lu the
morning,' and wulked to the bouse, half a
mile distant, through the wilderness, uot a
person being visible on the beach. At the
telegraph bouse be found the operators
from Londou fust asleep, hot one of them
expecting that the enterprise would succeed.
Indeed they had not unpacked their trunk;
anticipating that iu a week or two they
would be ordurcd back to London.

the cable to have waited for daylight bo

kept right ou through, tho night. Cupt.

meu iu them kindled blazing 'torcbcp, and
people along the shore lighted huge bon
fires to guide the uui'luurs ou their way.
The rensou why siguals and not words
were sent through the cable us it was being

clerks indulged in irrelevant conversation,
which distructed their ntteution from duly

might be fatal to the work. The Directors,
therefore, ordered that sigtiald only should

electric current played tq and fro between

Tho signals showed that ou the Grat day
the upeed of the Agamemnon sliirhtly ex-
ceeded that of the Niiigara, but on the
succeeding days they went at tho same
pace, thore uever being any more thau SJO
miles difference between them. When the
cable was lauded at both ends, Mr. Field
apjilied his tongue to the cud, and received
uiu eacenng information mat the insolula

threw him over. The rtnswu why message

Tact that all the apparatus ut both ends
was new and untried, and required a great
ueai oi care and skill to adjust.
Mt. 1 icld states that there is not the

U evident that the prcseut oue, which will
in a short time transmit messages as rapid
ly as any tcnal line, will be entirely ineffi
cient for the business which will flow to it.
Uutii the first of September the line
will be closed to all messages save those
from f he Gorerumout of Great Britain and

Field will keep the public advised of all
matters affecting tbo success of tho cable.
The Terminus of the Atlantic Cable and
All who have visited Trinity Bay, New
foundland, with one consent allow it to be
one of the most beautiful sheets of water
they ever sot eyes upon. Its color' is very
peculiar an inexpressible mingling of the
pnro blue ocean with the deep evirgreen
woodlands and the serene blue sky. lid ex
tremo length is about eighty miles, its
breadth about thirty miles, opeuiug boldly
into tho Atlantic on thu northern side of
the island.' At its southwestern shore it
branches into the Bay of Bull's Arm, which
is a quiet, safe and beautiful harbor about
two mile iu breadth, and nine or ton in
length, running in a direction northwest.
The depth of water is sufficient for the
largest vessels. The tide rises seven or
eight feet, and the bay terminates in a beau
tiful sand beach. 1 he shore is clothed
with dark green fir trees, which mixed
with birch and mountain ash presents a
pleasing contrast. The land rises gradual
ly from tho water all around, so as to afford
ono of thu most convenient and agreeable
town sites in the island. You aicend only
about a quarter of a mile- from tho water
and there are no longer tree but
wild grass, like an open prairie. Here are
found at this season myriads of the upland
cranberries, upon which unnumbered ptar
migan, or the northern partridge, feed.
The rasp-berrv, bake-npple berry, and
tbo whortle berry are also common. Num
erous little lakes may be seuu in tbe open,
elevated grouud, from which flow rivulets
affording abundance of fine trout. After
ascending for about a mile and a half, you
are then probably 300 or 400 feet above
the tide, and nothiug cao exceed the beau
ty of the scene when, at one view you be
hold the placid waters of both Trinity and
PUcentia Bays the latter sprinkled with
clutters of verdant i.slunds.
You can now deduoud westward as gra
dually as you came up from tho .Telegraph
landing, to tbo shore of Flacenti Bay,
w here there ts an cxcclleut harbor and ad
mirable fisheries, skirting the shoro, and
the accompanying road running along the
Telegraph lino leading from St. Johns
westward through the bland, to Capa Ry.
At this season of tbe year game is vory
abundant, Reindoer in great numbers, bear,
wolves others very numerous, tba largu
northern bare, foxes, wild geose, dacks, Lc.
About four miles southward of the en
trance of the Biy of Bull's Arm, on tbe
shore of Piaccntia Bay, is situated the
extraordinary La Mancbe lead mine, tbe
oronertT of tho Telegrapn company, ai

Surrounding Scenery. Consumption as a Luxury.
The Suitpd tar April contains a very in
teresting article on consumption, based np
on a theory promulgated by Dr. XT ashing,
ton. The substance of it amounts to this:
That the food we cat is first converted into
albumen ; that tho albumen Is convey id by
a vein, into which it is directly deposited,
to the right side of the heart ; thut It is
thence transferred at ouee to the lungs,
where it ia converted by the air webreittlio
iuto blood ; that if this air be lusuCivicnt
in quantity or indifferent in quality, the al
bumen, instead of turning into blood, forms
tubercles, and these tulmrckv? are the phy
sical elemeuts of consumption. That u, in
few and plulu word, tho w hole of the new
theory. Of course the remedy is a simple
one viz; plenty of getod fresh ftir. Noth
ing could be cheaper nothing any more
satisfactory. But will it do f We incline
t auswer lu the affirmative We have
kuowu more than one consumptive friend.
