E. A. BRATTON, Secretary pro tem. A Thrilling Adventure.
It was about tbe year 1805
that I settled in Virginia, near
.tjjef'tljs Jof - Kanawha j; The
country' at tht - ti rHef was' an
unbroken wilderness. But few
settlements had been made by
the whites, and they were so
far apart aa to render vain 'all
hopes of assistance iu case of
attack from hostile Indians,
numbers of whom still infested
the neighborhood. I lived
there alone. with my wife for
several months unmolested, and
by dint of perseverance, when
young and hardy, had succeed
ed in making quite a clearing
in the forest, which I planted
with corn, and which promised
an abuudant yield.
One morning atter we had
dispatched our humble meal,
and J.had just prepared to
venture tortn upon my ;accus
tome4 I'outine of labor, my at,
tentiou was . arrested by the
tinkling of a cow bell in the
' 'There' said my wife, 'the
cow is in the corn field.'
But the ear of the back
woodsman becomes by educa
tion very acute, especially
from tho fact that his safety
often depends upon the nice
cultivation of that sense.
1 was not so easily"'deceived.
The sound was. repeated.
Thai said I iu-iep.y- to my
wife's remark, 'wan not the
tinkle of a bell upon a cow, but
a decoy from some Indian who
wishes to draw me into ambush.
Believing this to be the case,
T took down mv old musket.
and seeing that it was proper
ly loaded, stole cautiously
around the . field toward the
snot from which the sound
seemed to proceed.
As l suspected, tbere, in a
clump of bushes, crouched an
Indian waiting for me to ap
pear in answer to ms decoy
bell, that he might send a bul
let to my heart. I approach
ed without discovering myself
to him, until within shooting
distance, then raised my piece
and fired. : The bullet sped
true to its mark, and the Indi
an fell dead. ,
"Not knowincr but that he
was accompanied by others, I
returned with full speed to
the cabin, and having firmly
loaded the door, I watched
all day for the companions of
the lAdian i naa kumu, ao
add to the danger and seeming
of my situation.. I
discovered that I had bu6 one
shot left, and if attached Dy
numbers J should oe entirely

tiful moonlight night it was,
too, and favored me greany,

nWrvs tha movements of the
enemy aa he approached the
cabin. . ,
It was two hours after night
fall, and yet I had neither
heard nor seen a sign or me
Indians, when suddenly 1 was
startled by the baying of my
dog at the stable. The stable
stood a little to tne west oi tne
cabin, and between the two
was a patch of clear ground on
which the light of the , moon
fell1 unobstructed. Judging
from the noise at the stable
ihnb the v would advance from
that direction, 1 posted myself
at the port-hole' on that side of

wifrt nn tho croaa-uole in -the
K ak .... m I
chimney, so that in case our en
emies effected an entrance into
our cabin, she might climb out
through the chimney and make
her escape. , For myself 1 en-
tertainea no hope,, but deter
mined to sell my life dearly.
"With breathless anxiety 1
waited at the port-hole. At
length 1 saw the memerge from
the shadow of the 'stable and
advance across "the open ground
toward my cabin. , One- two
three great ! heavens 1 six
stalwart Indians, armed to the
teeth, and ','urged , . on by the
hope of j-evenge,- and 1 alone
to oppose t.h era with one charge
of powder. . My case was des
perate, indeed. With quick
and stealthy steps, in close sin
gle file, they approached, and
were already within a few
yaodsof the house, when a
slight change Tn the movement
of the forward Indian changed
the six, so tltit-a-gortion of the
side of each was. uncovered.
They weffi "in range, and one
aim would coyer, . all. Quick
as thought l:aimed; and fired.
As the smoke cleared away 1
could hardly credit what my
senses showed me as the result
of my shot. The fifteen slugs
with which l loaked the mus
ket had done, their work well;
five of the six Indians lay dead
upon the ground, and the sixth
Although no enemies were
now in sight, 1 did not venture
forth until morning. There
lay the bodies of five Indians,
undisturbed, together with tbe
rifle of the" other. Securing
the arms and ammunition of
the fallen Indians, 1 followed
up the trail of the missing one
until 1 reached the river, be
yond which point 1 could dis
cover no trace whatever, r rom
tlae amount of blood which
marked his trail, together with
unmistakable evidence that he
had picked his way with diffi
culty, 1 was led to believe that
he was mortally wounded, and
in order to prevent his body
from falling into the hands of
the foe, he had groped his way
to the river, and thrown him
self into the current, which had.
borne it away.
Some of the Grant papers
are . endeavoring to make a
strong point against Greeley
by asserting that I weed and
some other individuals of ques
tionable honesty support him.
This hardly strikes U9 as being
exactly the point. Suppose
some thieves do support Gree
ley, that is not his concern,
nor is he responsible for it.
But should he support a thief
the thing would be changed
materially, and his friends
would have good cause to find
fault and his enemies to criti-

try, who are sure to be found
betting on the side likely to
win, Grant is supporting Casey,
Leet and Murphy, and a host
of thieves far worse than any
that will vote for the Philoscii
pher. People very well know
that a man can't help who sup
ports him, and when success is
sure he will always he will al
ways be followed by a host of
disreputable men. Bat a Pres
ident is responsible for the
people he supports, and if they
prove to be thieves, and he
continues his support, honest
men will usually consider him
as approving of their condqci),
A Brazilian Marquis recent
