the; authoritiee would not listen
thereto, and turned a deaf ear to all
entreaties. But the people of the
nGlroat Ifity clnmprous, anil' •/«*-
diu the traitor espousing their cause,
James listened to die voice of their sup
pl.eation ; anlf when the learned and
;i(Vwe mert (if the country caime together,
huthV spake against the little town, ’and
i had no defenders. Had hot the little
town cast its voice once upon a time
against some of them, and slfbuld in not
now be punished ? So it was decided
that the Offices Should be changed, and
! tfie Officers thereof, with their
,fecoFds and treasure, should he removed
to the great city, and that all that the
liltjte jpwn had from the, rulers,:,should
be taken away. Th-n the joy of the

bowed ip silence , before the wisdom of
thq rulers. ? , ~
But behold a great storm swept over
tho land. The mime of James became
a bye-word of reproach, and men
made tnouths at him in their anger, and
|o ! James.found that the speaker of the
Great City, to whose words he had hark
ened and whose councils he had laid up
in his heart, became one of his fiercest
enemies, and sat at meat with those who
persecuted him. And'James clad him
self in sack-cloth and cast ashes upon
his head and lifted loud the voice of his
nonrow in the silence of his own garden
where there Was none to point or look hi
him. And he swore a great oath that
he would ca«t down his eftetales, and
that his plAOs should be ‘ carried out ?
and he laid np in his he art bitter enmity
against those Who had deceived him
But the people of the Great City feared
not James—tney set at fraught aH his

Leech Laxe, Deo. 8, 1857.
Dear Editor : - At the e lose of the
payment made at this place, a few* days'
ago, and after Major Herriman had paid
the chiefs, some nix or seven hundred
dollars, surplus money, he took from his
Wallet and gave Flat Mouth, the head
chief of tho PiHagers, five dollars of
his own money, and told hint thaL tbe
money he had paid them, &.c ,
expected, he the last that he
pay them, and with the five dollars Tt*
h id just given him he must buy him/elf
a blanket as soon as he heard- that' he
the maj'»v) had left the country. That
they had always been good friends, and
he hoped that they parted so, that he
did not leave them because he Wanted tr>
get rid of them, but he thought that his
duty towards his own family/
it ; that he should give 'fopm a/mmfi
name to his successor, Red
they would always respect rfnd^istcfrW
major was
occurred fhlrttwas with RHMmy that
I could do justice to the imerpretarion
thereof, on account ef ; being moved al
most to tears myself did Ohief
gat up- the appeal of the major was
more th n he could stand, and said,
" Hold on, my father; yotjjumuat hear
what we have to say tdHpd, and
sometimes childish, but I knotPi am not
so in what l am about to say, for here
are aft these chiefs who all agree with
me,, as it was only yesterday, that we
Were talking about you, and we were all
of one mind. I call yog father, although
lam much older than* yeu are. Some
houses that we go into, the white people
will take us by the hand and tell us to
amrqk en, after leading us to the door.
But ; when you see a* before your door,
wh«fr we go t;i your house, we are al
ways sfrrq to; see you meeting up liter**,
and bid us welcome in. .When yoor,
meals are ready, we find- a plate for
leSfrl* of us, add your own wi e will pour
out cofTee for us, and make us feel at
home ; thfrn why Mtould wp not call
you father ? You have paid Us a great
many goods, and targe sums «»f money,
and we believe that we have always re
ceived every thing that wo Were entitled
to. We haw tnivfled many miles with
yen- and under/your cate. When We
were going down to Washington, we
%fiStS down one wagon; we run the Iron
Hbrse off the traek, and sunk one Strain
Boat or fire Vessel, but not one hair of
•our he df was hurt When the Steam
boat sunk we did not I .ok to see wKFjr*

great pisn, wkii a long pole »n his Hand f
blazing torch at the end of it, to
-light nud iead.ua in the right way. Now (
you uro going to leave us, to we can call
you father no longer. Shall we, ia
deppping that.sweet appellation, give it
.the same meauiag of one departed from
life ■ &.. Because you choose to leave
your position as our father, do not let it
be understood among our chiefs that yon
are dead to us. Let us from this time
cal! each other brothers. The (ive dol
lar* you gave ate to buy a blanket with,
f shall use for that purpose, and I shall
keep the same as I ana old, end must
pay the debt that I owe to the mas
ter of life—l will be laid fib" it ; and if
you should ever pass near my grave, I
want you to stop and drop a brotherly
tear, and say there lies a great and good
chief in heart, and onp that did the most
he could tp ameliorate the condition of
his tribe, and,, gain the good will of the
whites in his buiruble capacity, wrapped
in his brothers wading sheet.”
Just at this time I happened to cast .
my eyeron the old major, and Bi|w the
tears running down his cheeks like rain. •
,1 must acknowledge I felt strange my
jieif; my voice fullered so that 1 had to
wjkp two or three times before 1 could
finish in targeting the last sentence. 1
assure y9u.it was a sight I never will
forget. Old Flat Mouth, is about ninety
years ffo was in the prime of life
when lie saw the first white man, which
was Gen. Pike, iu 1800. The idea of a
savage^talking to an agent iu the way lie
did, was to me very unexpected.
Then Mauj-r-gah-bow got up and
said, My father, I want to say a few
•words to you before we part. I ain no
.phief, but I am at the head of a band by
r af fhtTtrtnflri I went
Washington with you and signed the
freati. . * just want to say that what old
Flat - Mouth has jest said ts just our
minds. For mvself I will say, that
some years ago I buried my father near
th** little Lake at Ottertail Point ; from
that time I was an orphan until you came
among us,—now you are goibg to leave
•is, and I must be an orphan again. Just
at the time that we know each other,
and understated each cither, and enjoy
Ljacti other?* confidence, you arc about
Hp leave as. 1 know that we cannot
raff< r your miod ; but rest assured tlurt
Koii leaf o us in peace, and that ybu lea*

sponded a hearty Ho.**

well, giving and receiving a hearty shake
