The Weather aim its effects. One dav we have
90 degrees of heat in the shade; the next 50. Thus,
one day the perspiration is streaming from every
pore ; the next day all are nearly closed. Even
those who have a healthy disposition of body, are
subject1 to siekncss under these circumstances.
Therefore to prevent any dancer, we ought care
fully to guard against a COSTIVE STATE OF
OUll BOWELS. Once or twice they must be
evacuated in 21 hours. If this is not effected
naturally, medicine must be resorted to J3RAN
DRETH'S PILLS must be taken: then there will
b'e.iio danger. Do not think that Eysx a daiia" use
of these Pills will weaken cr debilitate 1 They' do
not. On the contrary, the functions of the stomach
are restored, the bowels cleansed and strengthen
ed; the appetite and digestion improved. And
common sense tells us we are better able to with
stand continued heat, or sudden changes than we
should be, were we oppressed by a load of impure
humors in tl e blood, always the occasion of every
variety of disorder. Often a sudden dysentery
occurs. Should there be a cause for this, and ft
does not take place, then, the blood is made the
receiver of those humors, which should have been
discharged by the bowels. Under tnese circum
stances, which may be known by exceeding drow
siness, and great fatigue on the least exertion,
vegetable purging must be immediately and ener
getically practised, or these humors form a lirifng
or deposite in the blood vessels which may pro
duce epilepsy, apoplexy, consumption, &c- &o.
It must be, however, borne in mind that even in
dysentery and disorders of the bowels, that BRA$
DETH'S PILLS are indispensable. They re
move those peccant humors which produce these
affections, before they have time- to produce gan
grene or any other fatal effect.
Sometimes the blood is so loaded" with humors
that it becomes in a fermentation, being that state
of the body called fever, which is nothing more

to quote the words of Charles Miner " there
was not a soldier that marched to the field with
more cheer ful alacrity."
But alas! If he' had entertained any gloomy
forebodings, they were but too fatally realized.
In their flight, Hibbard and Carey took to a
field of rye, tall, and ready for the sickle. The
former, being in advance, broke- tho patli for
his junior comrade ; and, in doing so, by the
lime they had crossed the field, he became fa
tigued almost to exhaustion. Their object was
to escape to the island already mentioned ; but
the Indians were in" hot pursuit, and Hibbard
was overtaken just as he had gained the sandy
beach, and ere he could reach the stream. He
turned to. defend: himself, -but in the same in

Young ..Carey was more forrunate. Having
been less fatigued in the rye -field than his com
panion who had broken the way, he was ena
bled to continue his flight farther down the riv
er, before he attempted crossing to the island.
The Indians, however, watching his move
ments, swam the river above more rapidly than
himself, and he reached the island only to be
come their prisoner. He was then compelled
to recross the river by swimming, and carried
back to Fort Wintermoot. This defence had
been fired by the enemy themselves, and was
yet in flames when Carey reached it. Ihel
painfullness ot the scene was increased by the
sight of the bodies of one or more of his neigh

been stripped to his skin before leaving the
island, and was threatened with being ripped
up by menacing strokes of the scalping knife.
But his life was reserved for another destiny.
Tt appeared that his captor was Captain Roland
Mountour, of whose mother an account was
given in a preceding number. After passing the
night bound to the earth, he was accosted the
next morning by Col. John Butler himself, who
reminded the stripling of a threat he had made
on the preceding day, that " he would comb
the Colonel s hair, which throat had been re
peated to the Tory commander. Montour then
came and unbound him, and after giving him
some iood, led him to a young Indian warrior.

appeared that Montour was negotiating with

people, as a substitute for the son they were
then losing. - The young dying warrior assent

nine children. There was but a single field
piece in the valley", which was kept at the little
lort of Vilkcsbarrc, tobe'usedas an alarm gun.
On the approacbof danger, it wa3 announced
from its brazen throat, and the inhabitants obey
ed the signal by rallying for the common defence.
When the news of the invasion by the Tories
and Indians reached Wilkesbarre Abbott was
at work with his oxen upon the flats, whence
he was summoned by tho well-known sound of
alarm. Though the liiiSband and parent 'o'fhnne
young children, the eldest of whom was but 1
leven years old, all depending upon his labotr-?
for support, might well have been excuseclffrom

thence to the main land on the cast of the. rvar,
and was thus enabled to. effect his escape,. 1
In the flight of the inhabitants from the-'jaL
ley, Mr. Abbott removed his family, down th
Susquehanna sixty miles, to Simbury;-buuhav-ing
left his properly behind his Hocks and
herds for he was an opulent farmer for thoso
days and his fields wavingwiih a rich burdeji

of his farm was his only dependance for the sup
port of his family. But sad was the spectach
meeting his view on his return. His. house and
his barn had been burnt, his cattle slaughtered
or driven away, and his fields ravaged. The
gleaningscnly remained to require his attention.
These he attempted to gather, but in doing so,
while engaged in the field with a neighbour
named Isaac Williams, they were shot by a
party of Indians stealing upon them unawares,
scalped, and left dead upon the spot.
The widow with.licr helpless charge, being
now entirely destitute, was compelled to seek

her infant chaige by their former friends and
neighbors. She remained at Hamptonfur sev
