"We are all lot-a tremndous gale has

about sixty or seventy miles distance."
From the National IMfaga:ine and Republican
In person Mr. Legare is not tall; but he
is stout, his shoulders exhibiting si-gns of
strength; his head is remarkably large; his
mouth large, eloquent and singular; the
under lip projecting in such a way as to
give him a stern, but not unpleasing ap
pearance; it is rather the sternnesof tho't,
than the sulkiness of a haughty man.
He dresses well, and is very neat in his
Sersonal habiliment, a little lame withal.
e is so curious in his physical conforma
tion, that we are almost afraid to go on;
for though we feel nothing but respect for
him, yet we are afraid that our readers
would accuse us of caricaturing. Mr.Le
gare is striking in his appearance; there
is an air of originality about him that makes
you turn in the street to watch his retiring
figure Hisshori stature-his broad sshoul
ders-his high heeled and highly polished
boots--and then his hold, undaunted look,
mark him as a man in a thousand In de
bate, Mr. Legare is animated to the full
extent of the word ; he leans over his desk,
he moves his brows-his eyes wave about
-his figure expands-he rises to the top
most height of the imagination-and with
a rapid and hawk-like flight, he sweeps to I
objects of minor importance, but germain
to his topic. His voice is sui generis
strong, and almost harsh-full timed and
dramatic. Sometimes he flie-' over the
heads of his discourse, gatherug strength
and beauty as he goes, and anon he settles
upon a bold and commanding point, and
spins round and round in fanciful but vivi-,
His order of mind is picturesque and
ge.ieral. He loves the nide and wierd
fields of human speculation. From the!
closet he has emerged upon a buse, me.
cbanical, and muscular age, wrap in his
own peculiar and individual ma.ie. tie
has been a moral speculator among books
led on from dream to dreain-fromn majes
ty to majesty-until he deems the worldI
one widespread and glorious stirface.where
in are reflected thestar ol poetry. of beau- I
ty, and grandeur. There is nothing rough
and unpleasant in his intellect; but there is
that which, like the mechanism of the
rocket, throws far over the heads of all, his
brilliant shafts of rhetoric and eloquence.
Mr. Legare-can never be a useful man
to the physical condition of the mass, in a
direct and immediate mnanner. He can
not dive at once into the wants of the inil
lioned multitude, but he is calculatedt to
shine in the higher walks of-literature, im
parting a beautiful tone to letters, and
creating the energies of thougni, the daring
flight of the ambitious mind. As yet, we
do not think Mr. Legare has givenj a full
sample of his power in thei Hall. His
speech at the extra session was lbrilliant and
biahwrought. and evidenced the thought
ful composer, more than it did the political
thinker. It seemed like. a review uttered
by a reviewer; but Mr. Legare is young
in politics. It is a hardened and ungrate
ful task for a man who has wielded the
editorial pen of one of the most spirited
and able reviews in t his country, to throw
aside that peaceful pen--to forget his fa-|
miliar ink--the sanctity of his ekiset--its
peace-its melodious silence-andi rush
forth into the battle burst of political uipin-|
ion-but yet, with his honesty and has a-,
bility, he will do good service to the cause
of the people. He can generalise in a
peculiarly forcible manner, and his opin
ions may become the texts of-other and
more piractical men.
We have alluded to his conniexion with
the Southern Review. For mtany years
hie labored in that great vineyard of letters,
with his intellect ever bright and vigilant. -
Frequetntly the publisher would enter his
study, with fear and anxiety depicted on
his countenance, and irnplore Mr. Legare
to furnish him matter for the review, de
claring that he had been disappointed in
some other contributor, and that the work
wvould not be forthcoming, if so many pa
ges were not- filled up. The publisher
walways left him satisfied that the desired
work would he accomplished, and Mr.
Legare e' er proved faithful to his need.
Glancing around his library, he would
take down any work-Plato, Aristotle,
Livy, Cicero-any thing-Greek, Latitn,
French. Spanish or Itatian ; and the
midnight hour woul find him pouring.1
forth one of those brilliant sketches tata
so adorned the pages of the Review and
modelled it into a standlard of literature.
But we must hasten to others who demand:
our attention. We have sketched Mfr.
Legare at length. becatuse he is, to otur
mind. pure and unstainel-a bigh sottled
scholar, if not able to lay claim 'to the title
of a cunning politician.

ST. AUGUsTINE, Aug. 1.5.
From the South.--Major Richard Ben

Wednesdav from Key Biscayne, iii the
steamboat Cincinnati. who informs us that
Lieutenant Colonel Harney had.reached
that place. after making his escap from
being massacred by the Indians at Carloos-i
hatchie, with the soldiery, and Mr Dallam
and citizens under his employ, amounting
to 17 or 18 in all. Col. Harney was lan
ded at ihat place, on his return from Tam

provisioins, and rcturned late at night E
very much fatigued, and immediately re

not apprized of his return. c
About the tbreak of (lay he was aroused t
by the firing of guns, and, on going out of ,
his tens, found that the Indians had killed a a
number of men, and were pursuing others c
who ad Red to the water, firing at them ; d
he soon discovered that any attempt on his e
par, would be fruitless, and effected his I
escape with one man by the means of a d
canoe some distance from the camp. The
soldiers who took to the water made their d
escape by swimming to a small boat some i
distatice frotu the sbore. Col. H. met p
with them and returned to the coast that
night, and procured sonie bread left by the a
Indians, which enabled them to subsisi.- a

Major Bennett also informs us that Chit

Indians, who were detained by Colonel t
Harney , who sent Chitto Tustenuggee p
for Sam Joues to meet h'm-hai Sam t

both Ciit to Tustenuggee and Sam Jones a

MOax Bxooo!-Below will he found a
letter from Captain Peyton, of the UJ. S.
Army, now stationedi at Tampa-it speaks r
for itself. That an officer so well kntown s
for his vigilance and experi'euce should*
suffer himself "surprised," brv a party of
Indians. from the fact of having "no de
fetices-no guards." is truly astonishing !
The truce, appears to have exasperated h
the Indians; they now tmake frequent at
tacks, and invariably eff'ect most serious
mischief. They probably considered it an
insutli to have terms of any sort, offered to
them by the United States.
