MEMOIR OF JOHN HELM.
We are indebted to the Louisville Adverti
ser for the following short memoir of one of our
earliest friends. To look back itsecms but as
yesterday when be came forward, and with a
generous liberality gave us, a stranger, having
no claims upon his kindness, and but few to
his confidence, the means of setting out in lite.
It has been our lot to he separated from him for
many years. It is now our privilege to embalm
his memory with the tribute of a grateful heart:
MEMOIR OF JOHN HELM.—Another pioneer
of the West and soldier in the Indian wars,
growing out of the settlement of Kentucky, is
gone. "The middle age aciors in those event
ful times are all gone, and, one after another,
the youthful of that day, now the tottering old,
are "passing away: soon there will be none left
to tell the thrilling tales of anguish and blood,
that often filled the little frontier, and exposed
settlements with gloom and horror.
John Helm, the subject ol this sketch, was
born on the 29th November, 1761, in Prince
William county, Virginia. He was the eldest
child of Thomas Helm. His mother was the
daughter of Mr. Pope, and elder sister
of William and Benjamin Pope. The Helms
and Popes, together with Henry Floyd, whose
wife was a sister of Thomas Helm, making a
sort of colony or hand, composed of four fami
lies, closely united by kindred and affection,!
left their quiet homes in Virginia, the land of
their youthful visions, rendered dear hy the
tombs of parents and Iriends, and brought with
them their young and growing up tamilies,
risking all on the daring enterprise of seeking
a lortune and a home in the great western
wilderness,aware that the cruel Indians disput-'
ed every inch of ground, and waged a savage
and relentless war against every settlement and
every settler in detail.
Thomas Helm's family landed at the Falls
of the Ohio, now Louisville, in March, 1780;
some of the other families the year before. —
During the following summer and fall, his fam
ily suffered greatly by tbe billious diseases,
common to tbe first settlers in that place, losing
four of his children that season. Towards the
close of the year he looked out for a new loca
tion, and commenced a settlement near where
Elizabethtown now stands. Early in the fol
lowing year he removed his entire family to
that place, and built what was then called a
fort, where he continued to reside until ne died
at an advanced age. William and Benjamin
Pope's families remained in the vicinity of Lou
isville, and Floyd's family, after settling near
Bardstown, removed to what is now Union
county. These families all acted important
parts in those eventful limes, and the hoys that
were then scions of tiiose families, have contin
ued to be intimately connected with the histo
ry and institutions of the State ever since.—
Their descendants, now the third generation,
are the actors upon the great stage of active
life at present.
John Helm, the subject of this memoir, came
to Kentucky in t!|e fall before his father, when
about 19 years of age. For those times lie was
well educated for a practical surveyor. He
was of small stature, and not remarkable for ei
ther strength or activity—the qualities that
most adorned the forest gentleman of that day;
but, possessing a firm,good constitution, with
great steadiness of purpose and habits, lie was
enabled to perform the most astonishing labor,
and to endure the greatest sufferings. The
qualities of his mind were well suited to his bu
ness, possessing in a superior degree a sound
and discriminating judgment, united with pa
tient and untiring investigation, and personal
bravery. On reaching Kentucky, he immedi
ately commenced the dangerous occupation of
locating and surveying land, for which he had
been educated.
. His first trip was, perhaps, his most unfortu
nate, and, as we cannot at present go into a
detailed history of all, we will notice it and pasd
on. Having formed the usual company for
surveyors in those limes, lie commenced ope
rations not far from the mouth of Salt River,
accompanied by William Johnson, the lather
of Dr. Johnson, of Louisville, for whom he was
then surveying. A company of Indians having
discovered them, and knowing their business,
waylaid them while they were in the active
employment ol running a line. The Indians,
squatting in the small cane through which they
kadto pass, as they eame up, fired, and rising
at the same moment, rushed upon them with
their usual terrific yell. Mr. Helm being a lit
tle in advance,, was in the midst of the Indi
ans at the moment of the attack. The Indians,
considering him their captive, turned their at
tention to those in his rsar. He used the for
tunate moment, and passing through them,,
j&adc his escape —the others were all killed or
taken prisoners. Among tlie latter was Wil
liam Johnson; and Mr. Helrne alone returned
to tell the sad news that all was lost.
Soon another set of instruments being procur
ed, and the necessary arrangements made, young
Helm again commenced his hazardous occupa
tion, experience having taught him the necessity
of caution in all his movements—the theatre up
on which he acted being generally between
Green and Salt Rivers Many were the trials
and sufferings through which he passed. The
hair-bredth escapes arid thrilling incidents of liv
ing in a constant state of active warfare —some-
times driven by the Indians from their work—at
other times suffering from fatigue, cold, or the
want of food—sometimes assisting in defending
his fathers'fort when attacked by the Indians,
which was frequently the case—at other times
venturing to the assistance of some neighboring
fort, oflen forming one of a little band of volun
teers to fight and drive off a marauding gang of
Indians who were committing depredations upon
the neighborhood.
Yet scenes of blood and strife will become fa
miliar; and in the midst of them, there will be
marrying and giving in marriage. On the 2*2 d
day of March, 1787, youn'g Helm was married
to Miss Sally Brown, in Haycrafi tort, also in
the same neighborhood.
1791, he went out on St. Clair's campaign as a
common soldier, but his capacity for business
and superior education were qualities more un
common in those days than at present, and could
not be long overlooked. He performed all or
nearly all the duties appertainingto the staff-of
ficers in Col. Oldham's regiment of Kentucky
militia, which formed one division of St. Clair's
army. The regulartroops formed the other di
vision.
Col. Oldham and Mr. Helm, being connected
by marriage, as well as their official relation
ship in the army, werejon themost intimate terms
and fully in p each other's secrets. They were
greatly disatisfied with St. Clair's disposition of
the army the night before the fatal battle. Old
ham remonstrated with St. Clair and told him of
the danger before him, but to no effect; and final
ly parted from him the evening before the battle
with a prophetic waining that before they
met again, history would have to record the 'ale
of sorrow which would be the result of the blun
ders then making. Neither Oldham nor his
principal officers slept that night. A little be
fore day, Mr. Helm was sent on a trip of disco
very beyond the lines of the army, and while he
was on this service the attack commenced, the
Indians rushing upon Oldham's division which
was about half a mile in advance of the main ar
my, a small river or largefcreek lying between
them. Mr. Helm taking a circuitous route,
reached the ford of the river and waded over with
the retreating division. Immediately after hav
ing crossed the river, he met Col. Oldham. aDtl
while in conversation upon the best course to
pursue, Oldham received a ball passing through
hisbody, and he fell. The Indians being in hot
pursuit and near at hand, Helm could only stay
a moment to receive the Colonel's dying mes
sage to his wife. As history records all the oth
er general particulars of this bloody scene our
purpose is- only to speak of Mr. Helm as one of
the actors on that occasion.
Assisted by the officers of the Kentucy divi
sion, he made every exertion to ward ofl' the
dreadful horrors of that day by trying to keep
the way clear, so that the army could retreat in
snme'snrt of order. They continued their exer
tions till scarce one was left who was not either
dying or wounded. Mr. Helm, while in the
act of touching the trigger to shoot an Indian,
who had been doing great mischief, received a
ball in his left arm, shattering one of the bones
of the arm, from the wrist to the elbow. Thus
disabled, he fell back amongst the wounded
and dying, and for some time saw the efforts
made to regain possession of that point which
he and his comrades had struggled so hard to
hold. But St. Clair had commitled the second
great blunder, and streams of blood had to be
poured out before that important point was ob
tained again. Some of the best and bravest
officers and soldiers in the regular army fell
here; and several unsuccessful charges "were
made 1o no effect. By this time, ruin and
death engulphed the army all around. No
place was safe—the wounded often receiving
the second and more fatal shot where they lay.
Mr. Helm had no less than seven bullets pass
ing through bis clothes.
Seeing death or escape the only alternative,
and being surrounded hy the enemy on every
side, Major P. Brown, Capt. John Thomas,
(since Gen. Thomas,) Stephen Cleaver, (since
Gen. Cleaver,) Mr. Helm, and a lew others,
concluded to make a last desperate attempt
and open a passage through the Indian lines,
the only possible way hv which to retreat.—
The Indians were doubly prepared, having
twice received a charge made by a division ol
the regular army, but these men thought it
was but death any way, and they would make
a trial for life. Their plans being settled, they
called long and loud to the Kentuckians to
come and go home, and with a desperate shout
charged upon the Indians without firing a gun.
The Indians for a moment seemed to Be panic
struck, and yielded for them to pass, while the
whole army, as if by one impulse, followed
after.
Mr. Helm, with the true feelings and spirit
of a backwoodsman, clung to his rifle, that
treasure to be parled with only in death, his
arm bone broken and shattered, as before men
tioned—and carried his rifle and run and
marched with th 6 army upwards of thirty
miles that day.
The sufferings from such a wound would
have been great under Ihe most favorable cir
cumstances and best treatment, but awful in
deed must they have been in a wilderness,
with such treatment and accommodations as
could be given in a retreating and defeated
army; yet, alter months of suffering, lie re
turned to his family and was restored to health.
This closed his Indian fighting, and he again

resumed his occupation of surveyor. The In
dians were no longer an object of dread and
terror. The balance of bis life was spent iri
active and useful labor, mostly as surveyor.—
He acted as county surveyor in Washington
County many years, and also at the same time
as one of the Associate Judges, under the old
system, and was a neat and thrifty farmer.—
He had no political ambition; although oflen
urged, he was never a candidate for any office
before, the people. He accumulated a consid
erable fortune, considering the theatre upon
which he acted, and the country in which he
lived, for these things are but comparative at
last; yet few men ever came as near living and
dying without an enemy as he did. Seven
years before bis death, he joined the Methodist
Episcopal Church, having previously professed
religion, and died at his residence in Elizabeth
Town, in the full assurance of a blissful eterni
ty, on Friday, the 3d day of April, 1840, hav
ing lived fifty-one years, the husband of one
wile, and leaving a widow and five living chil
dren, and a numerous family of grand children-

BALTIMORE, Oct, 96,1836.
I have examined specimens of incorruptible Composition
Teeth, manufactured by Dr. F. li. Kuapp, an ingenious dentist
of Ihiscity.
In their form, color etc. they admirably imitate the natural
Teeth. Being compleiely incorruptible by the ageuts which
aflicl the Teeth, and also apparently very strong, they must be
peculiarly fitted for the purpose for which the) were designed

From Professor Duculcl.
Having examined some Artificial Teeth prepared by Dr. F.
H. Knap, and learned from him what are the principal ingre
dients inat enter into their composition, aud the nature ol the
materials by which they are colored, I am inclined to think
that they will prove, as he represents them to be, incorruptible.
Dr. Knapn, having moreover acquired the art of varying the
colors of the eu.uiiel which covers his Artificial Teeth, is there
by enabled 10 impart to them a more natural appearance than
such Teeth are usually found to possess; a circumstance that
willdoubtiess render them more acceptable to the public.
