settler was too much occupied with
his work to pay mucn attention to
making visits, and the distance was so
great that it was not safe for his wife
togoalcne, as the forests swaimed
ith wild beasts, which rendered the
night hideous with their cries. Bears
and panthers abounded, but the
wolves most to be dreaded and proved
tbe greatest annoyance; for olten
they would gather around the cabin
early dusk and keep up their hor
rid cries until tbe early gray of dawn
sent them bowling into the dim aisles
the forest and up the dark ravines
among the mountains, where shadows
almost like those of night lurked
through the day.
One day, late in October, business
called the settler to the nearest settle
ment of importance in that section,
which chanced to be some eight
miles distant ; and he set out early
the morning, telling his wife she
should not look for him before night
fall, as it was very uncertain what
time te wonld be able to accomplish
business, and it might be that he
wonld not be home till late in the
night; but come he would before he
slept, unless some unseen event inter
posed t) prevent. Heading over his
child that was sleeping in tbe bed, he
kiesed it, and then, having bestowed
the same mark of affection upon his
wife, he bade her to be careful not to
stir from the cabio or to allow the
child to wander from her eight, for
fear that some harm might come to
them from the wild beasts. With
this caution, which she promised
readily to observe, he threw his rifle
over his shoulder and tooK his way
across the clearing, and his wife
watched him from the doorway until
the forest thicket hid him from her
TIse morning bad given promise ot
beautiful day, which a? sarsnee was
well kept until a little past meridian,
when the wind changed to the east
ward, and dark clouds began to ob
scure the sky to the south and west,
giving strong indications that a storm
was nigh at hand. Busy with her
work and tbe care of her boy, Mrs.
Sloey did not notice the approaching
storm until near nightfall, when the
sudden darkness that teemed all at
once to throw a deep gloom about
the cabin reminded her that the.night
and storm were close at hand, and
going to the doorway she gazed anx
iously toward that point in the forest
whence she expected to get the first
sight of her husband.
Although her gaze was long and
earnest, it was not rewarded by a
glimpse cf her husband ; then with a
glance at the dark clouds that seemed
cover the little clearing as if with
hnge pall, she tiied to calculate how
long it would be before the rain would j
begin to fall, and to guess the dis
tance her husband might be away,
and the chance he had of reaching
home before the storm.
Standing in the doorway the gloom
seemed to deepen every moment,
sighing dismally in tbe forest disd
away, leaving everything almost as
still as death.
The kettle singing on fie hearth
recalled her to the tact that she had
commenced preparing supper, and
turning away from the door, she ap
proached the rude stone fire-place,
and after paying due attention to
what was cooking there she ap
proached the bed upon which her boy
was sleeping, and found the air ot
the last deepening night appeared to
strike him where he lay. Not caring
close the door, as she wished to
catch the first sound of her husband's
footsteps on his return, she bethought
herself of a quilt that was in the loft,
which she could spread upon the bed
without disturbing the little son.
Listening for a moment, to make
sure no footsteps were approaching,
she ascended the rude ladder, and felt
her way along in tbe darkness the loit
was unprovided with windows to the
spot where she supposed the object of
her search to be lying, but it was not
there. Either she or her husband had
moved it, and gi oping her way about
darkness, she, after a few moments
delay, succeeded in finding it, and
taking it on her arm, she approached
the ladder and was about to descend
when she caught sight of an object in
the room that seemed to turn her
blood to ice, and for a moment ren
dered her incapable of thought or ao
Standing in the center of the room,
with its head upturned, its fierce eyes
glaring around in every direction, its
long red tongue partly protruding
from its hall-open mouth in which the
white fangs were visible, was a huge,
lank wolf, that despite the timidity of
its race had ventured in through tbe
half-open door in search of food, at'

in is moment wna: was the horror of
the mother to see her boy, awakened,
no doubt, by the noise made by the
slamming of the door, rise up in bed
and call her to come to him.
At the sound of the child's voice.
the wolf paused ne,ar the center ot
the room, and fixed his eyes upon the
little fellow, who, all unconscious of
danger, was calling for. his mother.
The red tongue still protruded, and
the white teeth glistened in the fire
light, as the monoter, half fearing to
spring, crept nearer the bed to take a
better Jock at uis prey.
Half frenzied with tbe terrible dan
ger of her child, the mother determ
ined to sacrifice her own life, if need
be, for that of her boy. A plan had
suggested itself to her, a mere hope
as it were, and sue grasped it with
all the eagerness that only those so
situated can know.
Unfolding tbe quilt and laving it
across her arm, she prepared to de
scend tae laaacr. ine woir was
almost at its foot, and the bad bnt a
short dis'.anco away. The monster
saw her coming, and withdrew his
gaze from tbe child and fixed it upon
his new victim.
When half way t'owa the ladder,
the wolt made a spring at her ; this
was tbe moment for her to execute
her hastily formed plan, and throwing
tbe quilt, she enveloped the wolf in
its folds, who not fancying this cover
ing, commenced backing toward the
other side ot the csbin, striving to
get rid of it, but in vain. Sow was
the moment for action; and springing
the bed she clasped her child in
her arms and sprang up the ladder,
nnharmed by the wolf, who was still
straggling in vain endeavors to rid
itself from the quilt. With one hand
she threw tbe ladder back Into the
room, and then a cry of thankfulness
fell from her lips at the success that

Tbe boy not knowing tha meaning
this behavior on the part of the
mother, and somewhat frightened
withal, began to cry ; and while she
tried to hash him into silence again,
she did not take her eyes from tbe
wolf, who, completely blindfolded,
wss spinning- about th room in the
most eccentric manner.
It was more by its subsequent
action than by the fortunate throw
ing of the quilt by Mrs. Sloey that
the wolf became entangled eo hope
leesly in it. At first she watched his
actions with satisfaction, but as each
circle brought the wolt nearer the
fire, a new terror took possession of
her heart. Should it blunder therein,
it seemed fated to do, would not
the cabin be set on fire thereby and
death as horrible as the one from
which she had just rescued her child
their late. Trembling with fear
she watched every motion, and at
last that which she feared occurred.
Each circle, as the wolf frantically
endeavored to free itself from the
covering, had brought it nearer to i
Ereplice, under the mass of
glowing c aibers. A howl of rago
and pain ioiioweu ah it sprang out
again upon the floor, its covering a

No answer to toe frantic ejacula
tion came to the ear of the distracted
woman save tlie crackling or the
flames as they caught upon the dry
wood of the cabin, and sent their
forked tongues up to the spot where
she stood, while her ears were filled
with ths snarp cries ot the wolf as it
ranged round and round in its vain
endeavors to escape, while ever and

Although death stared her in the
face, Mrs. Sloey was not a woman to
give up so long as there was a chance
for life left to her. As we have al
ready said there were no windows in
the loft, so that avenue of escape was
denied her. The roof was covered
with hewn plank fas'.ened to the
bridge pole and the top log of the
sides by means of stout wooden pins.
To remove one or more of these was
ber only chance of escape, but to do
this with her own unaided hands
seemed to be impossible. Half
choked by the smoke, and ber child

power, she felt about her to find some

success. Finding this one immova

Hotter and more stifling grew the
air about ber, loader crackled the
flames below, and fiercer became the
cries of the imprisoned wolf, while
the cries of her child rang aboTo all,

HORRIBLE TALE OF SUFFERING.
The Horrors of the Passage from Europe
in an Emigrant Ship-Five Hundred
HalfStarved and Half-Frozen
HalfStarved and Half-Frozen Passengers.
[From the Louisville Ledger.]
We have heard many stories told
ot the snfrerings of a tup in an cmi
grant ship from Europe to America,
ana read details ot many very shock
ing cases of barbarity practiced upon
the poor emigrants by barbarous offi
cers of ships ; but we have been fur
nisbed the particulars by several
Germans, who arrived in this city a
few days ago from Germany, of a
scries of barbarities practiced upon
the passengers of the emigrant ship
Holland, of ths Liverpool and Xew
York line, that exceed in infamy and
outrage anything of the kind we have
heretofore heard or read.
The Holland arrived at New York
on the. 24th of March, after along
and boisterous tiip, hb five hundred
and fifty passergers aboard, all emi
grants, being at least two hundred
more thau she had accommodations
for. A number of these emigrants
were for Louisville, where they ar
rived the. litter part of last week,
and from some of whom we get these
particulars. The vessel had been at
sea but a few days when it was dis
covered that tbe stock of provisions
was not only ot tbe poorest quality,
but was also very light. In less than
week all the fijur, potatoes and
other vegetables were exhausted, and
the passengers were reduced to a
diet or ship buscnit and horse beef,
and this of the poorest quality, and
doled out in the smallest portions.
btarvalion began to stare the
wretched emigrants in tho face, al
though the ship's officers and crew
seemed to have plenty ot good and
healthy food. To all appeals for a
fair division of this food among the
emigrants the officers and crew ans
wered only with curses and blows.
Sickness broke out among the cmi
grants, and in their desperation some
of them made an effort to secure
more food, but were knocked down
and kicked and beaten by the crew.
Many of these miserable people, men,
women, and children, were exposed
on deck to the cold, and were badly
frozen. Our informant states that
the captain and mate of tbe vessel
were particularly cruel in their treat
ment of tbe poor emigrants, and as a
consequence ot all their sulljnogs
there was much sickness and rainy
deaths during the trip.
To such a degree ot starvation
were luese emigrants reduced tbat
when their scanty allowance of food
was issued to tbem they had to fight
for its possession, the desperation of
the half-starved passengers, under
the impulse of self-preservation lead
ing tbem to try to lake by force from
the weakest their share of tbe
wretched food. Tbe horse beef, our
informants state, was absolutely half
rotten, and its stench almost stiMing;
yet the emigrants were forced to eat
to save themselvet irom a horrible
death by starvation. Tbe limbs of
msny women and children, as well as
number of men, were so severely
frozen that in many cases amputation
will be necessary. A report of the
sufferings of these emigrant was
made to the authorities at New York,
but our informants say no attention,
far as they know, was paid to it
is a case tbat requires tbe most
rigid investigation, and, if the facts
are as stated to us, the captain and
other officers of the ship should be
brought to the speediest and severest
Washington never never made a
speech. In the zenith of nis fame
he once attempted it, tailed, and gave
up confused and abashed. In fram
ing the Constitution of the United
States, the labor was almost wholly
performed in Committee of the Whole
of which George Washington was
day after day tier day the chairman,
but he made two speeches during the
convention, of a few words each,
something like oneof Grant's speeches
ed the master spirit, and historians
affirm that had it not been for his per
sonal popularity and the thirty words
of bis first speech, pronouncing it the
best tbat conld be acted upon, tbe
Constitution would have been reject
ed by the people. Thomas Jefferson
never made a speech. He couldn't
do it- Napoleon, whose executive
ability is almost without a parallel,
said that his greatest difficulty was in
finding men of deeds rather than
words. When asked how he main
tained his influence over his superiors
in age and experience when commander-in-chief
of an army in Italy, he
said, by reserve. The greatness of a
man is not measured by the length of
his speeches or their number.

Adam Poe's Great Fight.
The celebrated fight between Adam
Poe and the Shawnee chief, Black
Feather, has been spoken of in the
histories ot early Kentucky, bnt I
believe the particulars of the combat
have never been given to the public.
The fight was remarkable, not oniy
on account of the well known prow
ess of the parties engaged, bnt with
the exceeding stubbornesa with which
it was conducted, and the many pha-.
ses it assumed before it ended.
They literally fooght on the earth.
in the air, and under the water.
Adam Poe. one of the first settlers
of Kentucky, had often expressed a
desire to meet the Shawnee chief in s
hand-to-hand combat, and these
boastings having reached the ears of
iilack .Feather, he declared his inten-
tion of seekinz out tire darfnwMt
A .US lor two oeaaoua uu wuj

keep them apait for a time, finally,
however, the opportunity came.
Adam Poe and his brother had
been oui hunting, and were return
ing, toward sundown, bearing a back
on a pole between them. -When
passing a small thicket, a
shot was fired at them, the ball lodg
ing in the head of the deer, which
hang next to Adam Poe.
To drop their burden and rash to
the ambush was but the work of a
moment, Adam taking the right and
his brother the left hand side.
The thicket proving much larger
than either thought, they, became
more widely separated than they in- .
tended, and Adam was on the point
of returning to where they had left
the deer, when, at the distance of a
hundred yards or so, he discovered
the gigantic form of the Shawnee
chief, who was just in the act of
firing upon him,
Adam had time to reach cover be

Foot by. foot they drew nearer
each other, leaping from tree to tree,
from stump to stump, from rock to

Imperceptible to each other, per
haps, they gradually worked round,
until both stood on the verge of a
high bluff-bank overlooking the river,
facing each other, but some twenty

edge of his hunting knife.

Poe was not quite ao tall as the
Shawnee, but he was fully as strong,
and more active ; and so the fight
was on an equal footing.
For many .minutes they straggled

The advantage now lay with

The Indian strove to regain the

back into deep water, and then both
