dead wolf and a red deer, and against a
Hunted oak, within his reach, rested a
long French ride.
Upon his brow rested a coronet

length it rested upon a little mound, about
fi ptone's throw from tho church, upon

The years rolled on, and their savage
neighbors instigated by the arch fiend
I'hilip of Mount Hope, united for the
destruction of the whiles. Indian run
nerd had been seen by hunters crossing
their tracks, and the inhabitants at dusk
had been startled by the fiery eyeballs of
tho painted savage as-hs skulked amid tin;
f rakes .on the forest border.
It was midnight. A December snow
fill heavily upon the sleeping town, and
(lie wild winds wail ia it played with the
snow drift and swept through, the lonely
streets, seemed like the shriek of the spir
it of the storm. A paust! ensued, and
then arose a thousand hellish yells. The
town was attacked by Indians; husbands
and wives, inoiiiers and sisters were rous
ed irom tlieir hods to le butchered at their
doors, or to be pursued thro' the mighty
drifts and then murdered, while their half
clothed bodies were tossed into the flames
of the burning houses. Soon the whole
town was a sheet of flame ; the mother's
shriek and the infant's wail had no power
over the beast like Ravage ; the pleading
cry and the look of anguish were answer
ed by the swift desecuAVof the tomahawk
and war club, or tho deep cut of the more
torrible scalping, JiuTTe. At that moment
a body of PMf a rt-Qtt'd the house of

notes of a singing bird. The Huron's
pledge shall be redeemed, but it must be

a few words in the language of his tribe,
and the major part of them retired to the
outside of the building.
Tho chief then turned to Julia, who had
not gathered her fate from his words, and
said 'Daughter of the palo face, by the
Council Tree of the Huron, the pledge of

In. three hours von must, denart.
Let the old man and sfjuaw' be ready for

to Julia, again he departed. The daugh
ter in her exertions lor tlie (h liverence of
her parents, had neglected to turn lier
eyes towards them. She now looked and
beheld them laying apprrently senseless.
She sprang to their side and raised their
faces from the (add lloor, then uttering a
piercing shriek she east herself on their
silent forms niul fainted. CJod of Heaven
they were dead !
How long she lay in a state of insensi
bility she knew not ; but-when she awoke,
she found herself borne upon a hurdle
made by six tall Indians, while in one of
w hom site recognized as tho chief of the
llurons, led the van. The horrid truth
then burst upon her. Her much loved
parents were dead, her hu'tids ami peigh
bors had been routed or destroyed, their
lovely village was a smouldering mass of
ashes and blood. Tor several days she
hung between life and death. At length,
as the band wound round a low, woody
hill, she heard the war-whoop of the Hu
ron welcoming the return of the partv,
and in a few minutes perceived the tall
form of Wankineo boidc her hurdle.

The shades of night were rapidly re-

from which, the scream of the eagle and
the song of ft,t. red breast came no in mel

A wild whoop suddenly arose from the
lodge of dm chief. Jt was nnaweftd bv m
thousand echoes, and in a few seconJs the
painted forms of numerous Indian ar.
riors were seen stealing from the foijos
and lodges in the vicinity. Beautiful, "in

fidiage of tho j oung miderwood, the feath
ers and shell work oi the gaily dressed
children of Nature flashed back the sun
light, or sparkled brighter with the few
drops that showered upon them, as they
parted the obtruding branches of the ma
ple and ash, the former covered with its
crimson leaves, and the latter assuming
the faint tinge of Autumn. The scene
was beautiful as Eden, and man seemed
to roam amid its bowers in his primeval
In a few moments the gentle Julia was
aroused from her couch of leaves by the
same beautiful Indian girl who had so
kindly atteiuled her the evening previous;
and dressing herself hastily, obeyed the
signal and followed her guide to tho door
of the lodge, where she was received by
a young chief and conducted to the Coun

While the examination was going on, the

Ten years passed awav, and the tide of
white population rolled like a foam capped
billow over the west, causing the 'wilder

the solitary places glad.'
At, .J 8 close of a long summer's day,
as- a more adventurous emigrant and his
family had penetrated far beyond the fron
tier, and approached the Ohio river, they
beheld as the sun was setting in all its
gorgeous splendor behind the western
forest, a beautiful cottage surrounded by
Mmihhrrv nnd fields, under n l-'1 ? Ol
cultivation. A KrouP. of, t,re8fi1l;tl
umioren were playing in the lawn, and a
man and woman in the usual costume of
settlers in the woods, were setting upon
tho rude portico before the door, evident
ly witnessing with satisfaction the sports
ol their children.
As the emigrants drew near, the hus
band and wife approached the cavalcade
and welcomed the new comers to their
cottage v but nothing could exceed the
astonishment of the emigrants, as they
cast their eyes over the cleared land
around them, and then raised them upon
the inmates of the cottage. They were
satisfied that the man was of Indian ex
traction, but the wife and children had the
blue eye and the light hair of the Saxon
race, and the latter a little brownness of
complexion, which might have been the
effects of the summer sun. For some
time they were left in doubt. At last,
when the morning came, and the emi
grants wero getting ready to depart, their
kind hosts, with their children by their
sieles, drew near to them, and carrying
them to a beautiful arbor, formed of the
vine of the wild grape supported by sap
lings, on the banks of the broad Ohio,
related in turn tho preceding incidents

That night the emigrant and his family
commenced a clearing; and, aided by their
kind neighbors, they were soon located in
a comfortable manner.

one of die loveliest towns in Ohio ; and

"I have been familiar ith these moun

knowing something about them, and a

nothing is more easily crossed than these
mountains. Wagons and carriages may
cross them in a state of nature without
difficulty, and with little delay in the
day's journey. Some parts are very high;
but the gradual rise of the country, in the

we believe, no formal occupancy of that
