Harness me down with your iron bands,
De sure of your curb and rein ;
For I scorn the strength of your puny hand.;,
As the tempest eorns a chain ;
How I laughed as 1 lay concealed from sight,
For many a countless hour,
At the childish boast of hut nan might,
And the pride of human power.
When I saw an army upon the land,
A navy upon the sea.i,
' Creeping alonsr, a snail-hke band,
Or waiting the wayward breeze;
Whrn I saw the peaant faintly reel,
With the toil which he daily bore.
As he feebly turned a! the tardy wheel,
Or tugged at the w eary oar.
Vl.en I measured the panting courser's : peed,
Or (light of till carrier dove.
As they bore the law a king decreed,
Or the lines of impatient love;
I coidd not but think how the world would feel,
As these were outstripped r.fr.r,
When 1 should be bound to the ru-dihig w heel,
Or chained to the living ear.
Ida! Ha! Ha! they found me at la.t,
Ihey invited me loi 'ai at k'agtn,
And I rushed to my throne uitu a thunder blast, i

CifAPTEP. I. The Attack.
It wp.3 a bright Sunday afternoon, in July,
177G, and the inhabitants of P. Lad as
sembled for Divine worship. It is necessary that
we should refer our readers back that they may
know the existing state of things in II at
the time of the commencement of our story.
The war had been waging with great fury, and
the little settlement of R-
had not been ex-
empt Brum tlio ravages or tne ruiniess ..uages ,n ;
the employ of the British. Numerous attacks !
Kii1 iiin.'li. and several of the inhabitants !
..u.. , ,
had been killed ; but all attempts at a general
surprise and massacre had failed as from the su
perior skill of the brave settlers of R they j
were enabled to encounter the Indians in their
Cwn mcde of warfare, and were always on their 1
Having failed in all attempts to surprise the J
settlement, the Indians suddenly disappeared I
probably in search of easier .prey. But there v. as I
one among them, a young chief, who was slill j
determined to accomplish tlie object, and he had
greater inducement than plunder revenge ! !
Ondega, the chief, loved but with the wild ;
love of a savage the " brightest and best" flow

fore the war he had endeavored to gain the inaid
tu's consent to become his bride, and )m the
unstress of bis forest home. But the loely Jen
ny Birch had smiled at his vivid and fdowin;
representations of happiness, anel endeavoml to
teach him that a white maiden could never be
happy iu such a situation. But he still perseve
red, and she at last refused him kindly and de
cidedly. Ondega 's love was now transformed into a bit
ter hatred ; and with vows of revenge he disap

When this was communicated to Jt-uny Birch,

warriors with the deafening war whoop still on

j Mr. ilireh was seated behind the door, anl as
j the Indian sprang past him, with the speed of
thought he leaped upon him and pinioned his
arms behind him. The next moment, the
j strong arms of one of the settlers had forced the
i door shut, and not w iiks anding the furious onset
made by the savages, he with the aid of one or
two others, succeeded in effectually barring the
loor, and all si,raii2 to their arms:.

All v. as quiet till eleven o'clock, and the set
tiers began to think the Indians had left for cer-
tain, w hen the slirill war-w hoop ringing out
the pure air gave warning that a terrible stnie-
de was at hand. Ins fan thy every man was at
his post. In a moment the Indians rushed on
the church, and notwithstanding the murderous
discharge of lire arms that greeted them, carrying
death to many of their number, commenced afu
rios attack on the door with their hatchets.
1 he settlers continued to pour a galling fire on
the savages ; but after some time a break was
made through the heavy oak door, sufficient to
admit the body ofa man, v. hui a savage leaped
through, lie was scarcely inside the church
when his head was cleft by an axe in the hand of
The Indians now poured through the apper
ture, and, although they met with a desperate
resistance, were fast accumulating in-ude the
door. The door w as unbailed by those who had
reached the inside, and all ru.died in cagtr for
blood. Put they- were opposed by men fighting
for their loved ones and homes.
The settlers no longer used rifles but resoriod
to their knives, and the manner in which ihey
were used showed that it was no new werpon in
Eut it was evident that this unequal content
could not last much longer. Although none of
the scUlcr.s had as yet been killed, scarcely one
but was severely wounded. The savages out
numbered them two to one. Seeing the despe
rate state of things, Jenny Eirch seined a toma
hawk which Lad been thrown down, and rushed
into the thickest of the fight, and for a moment
that tomahawk was suspended in the air and
when it descended it carried a messenger of dtath
to a bloody savage whose tomahawk was pending
over her father's head
This was seen by the savages, and for a mo.,l
ment hostilities were suspended, and squaw !

At this moment a shout proceeded from the
creek, and Edwin Pierson sprang to thc rescue
with his brave followers. Ondega caught sight of '.
Jenny as she stood with bloody tomahawk still j
in her hand, and with a fiendish whoop and up
lifted tomahawk, he sprang towards her to strike
thc deadly blow. A rifle shot sped through the
air, from the unerring rifle of Edwin Pierson , and
Ondega was stretched lifeless on the floor. His
followers, now witiiout a leader, were easily con
quered. We will not attempt to describe the happy scene
which followed. Husbands clasped wives ami
childre n to their breasts, thc good pastor, although
severely wounded iu the conflict, knelt elown and
offered up thanks to God for their deliverance.
Jenny had swooned from over excitement, and was
