I bad tpeul tome yeario tbe llud.on Bay territory and wat on my way aoutbwtrd wbeu 1 loruied the Idea of joining Hill Maraton in Lit winter' bnut. Maratou'e teputailon a a keen And arirr hunter tlood bigb among tbe band of wbicb he bad been a quoii member, aaid tl wat ad milled tbal be could draw a quicker And truer bead than auy man l.'iereabooit.

I even heard eaottier grlr.rled, huck-klnued old trtp per y that he proposed Itccouipanying my cooipanion, but he been rrpulted in pretty thort tertni; and now, auid the iudiitDAiit trapper, 'pitting out A huge flood of tobacco Juice, lie's luck tbal young un luttcad to keep bin in perpetu al hot water. Mimton mut have heard UiU, a I did, but he look no notice of it whatever ; And I, a little takea down, wtt glad wben be gave the dugout a itroug path off tliore, and i prang in wltb at tonlthlng agility lor a uiau of h( age whlch I atterwarda learned wi over fifty. We were about three weeka In reaching Maraton' camp far, jar from auy bu rn a u habitation, except tbe occational wigwam of tome Indian hunter engaged like ourtelvet. Part of the way we tailed Along iu our dugout between the beiutl lolly tinted en t ever varying tree clad bankt Of th river, puthing Along by Uy a rapidly a possible egaintt I bo strong current, And carefully drawing up onr eanoo under some overhanging tree, pac ing tbe night enveloped in our warm blankets. At tbe end of two week we arrived at a fork ol the river, wheie we left onr ca noe -concealing it iu tbe hollow of a cot ton wood log, which Mar'tou had lined for thfv purpose nuny yearn. He told me there was a coiulderable fall a short distance above the forks, over which we conM not get the canoe; o weabonldcred our jacks and uitdc the rent of our jour ney on foot. On tbe fourth day of our march, Mart loii'a keen eye delected Indian signs here aod ibera along oar route, and while he seesuftd to leal annoyed at Ix-ing tueuilled with Abd perhaps hit traps Stolen, it (lid 1 not greatly affect me, at I knew that all tbe tribeA of Uritiali Indiana were on friendly term with the Company aud tbe banters. ' . K At length we reached tba lodge as Mar- ston invariably called bis but, without seeing Anything mora of the Indiaut, and ray holt's temper was visibly improved wben be fouuJ everything was exactly as be left it sometime before, lie At once eonmeneed initiating me into ibe ri of making op and setting traps for mink,' beaver and otter, with wbicb tbe river aud Adjacent meadows seemed to bo alive and in A short time I could do Ibis as well as in y teacher, though perbape lets expe t'tjl kaalf . , , ( ; ')oe morning, after we had beeu thus occupied about ibrae weekt,aud had taken and co red a large number of One skint, Mart too got np and went out very early, Saying tbAt be would visit tome distant Otter trapa that bad been set a long time.

H aa tvery Arilclo u oioe, or Imleed, ADytblng tbAt would betray tb fact tktt two men lived in Iba aamp. I did not quite comprehend this lusou-uvre till some time afterwards. 1 then quietly crawled tbrongb Ibe woods to tbe collec tion of rocks that my friend, for soma fanciful reason of bis own, bad chosen to call Otter USuff. UwstlAteln tha dsy when 1 Arrived At the Bloff, end mounted wearily to tbe lop. 1 looked Around for Msrttoo, but bo was uo wbert to be aeen. Fearing thst be bed fainted from tb loss of blood I made a careful though cantlons search among the crags and rsvines where A mao might possibly have dragged biuiaolf. Out I could see do sign of bits, and concluded that through weakoess be had not beeu able to get there as soon as I had; sol sat myself dowu In A tin to thicket ot young cedars tbst crowued one ol the peaks, where 1 could see without being seeu myself, to swait hi eouiing. Here 1 crouche I till dark, and still no sigus of my comrade. Tormenting doubt now beset my mind aud 1 began to fear that Maraton bad beeu captured in bis retreat to the Bluff, or tbal Ita bad been uuabla lo use it through loss of blood; 1 even pictured him lying among tba maple leaves stslned with a deeper boa than their owo Ue, perishing from thirst and faiutnets. ; While debating what course to pursue, I peroeived a (bright light a mile or mora off 1 could scarcely sty bow far it might be iu tbe gaiheriug darkuess; but A uo aitempl at concealment was made, I con cluded it proceeded either from Msrilou, who bad outwitted his eueuiies, or from those enemies tticraaelvi'S, who, Iu that event, i thought mu.t have captured or killed my poor friend in epito of bit keen woodcraft, aa otherwise they would be too wary lo draw on themselves tho von genco of I he wounded trapper. 1 imme diately tksceuded from tuy perch and cautiously crept along the shaded edge of the river, keeping well under the over hanging branches of the bordering eedsrt. In this way I must have crept forward for full an boar, anil still the fire seemed far away. As I stepped out in (he bend of the river, on the side of which the lire burned with increased fury, a large owl flew from his perch iu an overhanging tree, and silently betook himself to a ssfer distance Irom bis natural enemy. As the ill omened bird spread bis soft, noisely wings to Ibe night air, I bethought me that, if Maraton was near, I could comma, nicato my presence lo him by Imitating Its cry, whice I bad often repealed In tbn hut when we ley listening to tbe Awaker. ed chorus outside. Placing my band upon tny mouth, 1 emitted three or four of tiiose weired, dismal cries, wbicb were re-echoed by the sombre woods until tbe somirftf river bcud returned its ghostly answer. Hastily looking to my rifle, end Astur-j ing myself thai Ibe priming was all right, I hurried oa si tally and stealthily until within en eighth ot a mile ofthe light., When I parted the brashes behind whose shade I hal cautiously advanced, and looked in the direction of tbeJblsze, I be held a sight that sent the blood cold snd chill back lo my heart. Befote me, on the gratiy plot in front Of our but, were seated three brawney savages, naked, and pairted with black and Vermillion stripes snd two others with similar eostome, were dancing around a young birch tree lo which was bouud band And foot, poor Bill Maraton! I waited to bear no more, harrying for ward as rapidly as possible from the I Ature ot (he ground Aud my desire lo re nalu unseen, I soou eatae ta akUiuk, gro wth of trees in (be midst of wbicb vur but I ad been built. There was, of course no hot now. Everything was destroyed tbsl'wo aid have been useless to onr savage toes ; tbi re mott likely lying in full view of tbeir aoiaerable owner. On my bands amf koeea t forced luy way silently through tio thick underwood until within forty yards of tba hostile circle. This movement of conrta bad taken some lime for to break a twig or stir a leaf would bava insured inylettructiou aud wben I parted the branches before me I found the two Indisns busily piling around their prisoner materials for a fire wherewith to roast bitn. I plainly aaw that prompt actiou would alone ssve Marston, who was cursing tbe blasted, sueaklng, cew ardly, red tkinued heathen, with every variety of oath known to tbe fraternity and there are tome strange ones. The three asvsgea that looked on were kittiuif upon a log half burled npon I lie tnoy earth, and the idea struck ma that aa any rifl e threw a bullet witb very great force, if t could get them all in a line I might kill litem all al one shot, or at ail eveuu, kill one and severely wound the other two. I therefore crept silently back and considerably further to tbe right Kl.ere, much (o ray gratification, 1 found I could draw bead on tbelr three beads In a line. 4 bad jatl got into my new potition And m poabiusT my lift's before me over a log wbicb 1 iuteodtd making A rest, when i tsw a sew light spring ep At tba pile, aud tooa lb fir formed a bright circle Aroaad my doomed friend. At th ssm rautaetit tt.e mo.l dititot of tbe aavsgee arote. and in another moment would doutKiea have joined lie yelling fiends arooa J tha fit; bet witb a qo'.ck glance Akttg tb barrel ot my trutty riflt 1 sent lb boflrt fjanh ou Us erimd of death. The two painted aerpents on the log fell backward, and th p:her sprang Into the air wi.h a bial cf ptia. WHk a maniacal ! yell atralegteily followed by Maraton ! 1 rasbed forward and leveled one Of the j two hideout imps dsuclng around tbe fire j who were liken too much by surprise to : know whether the attack was made by J oi.e or a score. Tbe oiLcr with his wounded comrade, fled affrighted Into the wootlt, while ! scattered the burning pile and eat tbe bond, of my Irieod. No sooner was he free than b bounded to the log behind wbicb tb two victim lay silent In death, aad leitlng tbeir rifles dashed iuto lb dsrk shadows of the lor est, shouting to me to follow him. In a few minutes we were far beyond tbe be traying light of iba aoausred fire, wben, suddenly stopping bis rspid though silent advance, Maraton caught my arm and told me lo reload my rifle, at the same lime testing tbe captured wraKns, which be found already charged. I wai eager to get ss great a distance from our enemies as possible and so told Marston', but be soon convioccd me that il would only bring on the destruction I would encspe. For, ssid he, if tbstu ar red skin dUkiver tbal they aren't chased, tbey won't run fur; and the chancel are tbat tbey raiee our bar afore we'd been asleep An boor of our first bivousc. In order to sscertsin if tbe Indians bad really left o, and If not, to wipe them out as soon as possible, il was finally de termined thai 1 should return to Iba am bush whence I bad fired on tlein, and watch the opposite side of the vslley for their return, whilst my companion would crerp silently around lo Ibe Ulcket op posite, wherein the savages had disappear ed. At sunrise we were to meet At the old Buiff snd compare notes. Al soon as ibis arrangement bad beeu agreed npon Marston disappeared noiselessly into tbe darkness, and falling on my bands and knees, I cautiously retrsced my stepi to (be old CAmp And having securely biddeu myself from any outside observation in tbe thick cedars, peered tbrongb a (An gled buah in my front for signs of life on Ibe opposite bank. Tee fire had not yet died out, and tbe red light reflected from tbe stream In front lighted np the opposite shore witb a weird radionoe, which, with my excit ed brain, kept me fully awake watching the huge shadow that chased each other along the margin of the sombre woods. The minutes seemed hours to me, as 1 thus lay In wsit, and, as Ibe night air curbed my bounding pulse, I found my self wondering At the nonchalance with which I regsrded my then present occu pation and tbe still visible bodies of Ibe slsln slain, too, by my own bandl How long 1 lay (here t bave no means of knowing. All I know was tbst no welcome beams of the wished lor ana yet tinted evcu tbe fleecy clouds high above Iu the starry sky, and tbat till then 1 must keep my wearisome walcb. 1 was trying to imagine where Marston then was, And whether be was more successful iu bis vigil than myself, when the sound of a breaking twig startled the stilluos of the night And the next instent the loud whir of a tomahawk sounded close lo my ear. 1 was on my feet in An instant; but before I could bring my rifle to bear in tho right direction, 1 was seized In tbo arms of a powerful isvago and dashed to the earth, tbe rifle going off si I fell. We fell together, my Antagonist uppermost, And I half stunned bencst!). I struggled witb aIJ mv strength to throw him from me, but 1 might as well hsve tried lo move a mountain. My right hand was a prisoner, caught by the sieve of my bunt ing shirt, together with the bosom of tbst loo unyielding garment. In onr fall we had cleared the clump of faithless trees which I believed bad so securely conceal ed, and in bis strugglo to bold mo down and to reach the weapon be had thrown Al tny head, we had gradually approached the alope leading lo the water; and jul as his hand bad secured tbe handle of the haichei, and 1 c'osiuv; my eyes, am ex pecting the crahluK blow, the sharp crsck of a rifle broke upon my oretslrain- ed ears, and 1 fell my arm .deed Istm the vice like grip of my .enemy. Opening, my eyes, expecting my aajlaul lo far dead al my tide, (for I knew it tuuat be Marston who fired,) I saw to my horror that he wat uninjured, but I baw also that be was startled by the discharge. Quick as thought I threw slimy strength into one last desparing effort, And, All un prepared, lbs ssvsge was soon struggling beside me ou the dewy sward. As we rolled swiftly down tbe slope, I siczed my knife and boried It to the hilt in bis side again and again. Almost witb bis last expiring groan, however, be lifted ine in bia arms and plunged into Iba rolling Kresro. My bead must have struck Against a projecting rock, for It seemed to be cleft iu twain; the bright star danced before my closed eyes; the yield ing wsves closed over as, be above and 1 below, and I remember no more. 1 Wben I awoke to cootctouanets, the morning tun wat shining brightly, and Maritoo wat pouring cold water over my bead and cbe.t from his cap. When 1 was able to sit up, he told me tbal be bad sbot the wounded ludisn, who had placed himself in a position similar to my own on the opposite bank, and for a similar purpose to shoot as down did we incau tiously approach the old camp or tbe fire. : Tbe other savage, wboae glgantio body lay Jammed between Iwo rocks In the stream, with woodcraft equal to my friend's kad cautiously crept aroond to eay position, witb lb retail I have de tailed. Maraton fonod me In tbe water, and supposed me dead; but on examina tion he found Ibat lile haJ not qoit fled and fanning Ibe feeble spark, again kind, led the expiring flame. Wkila M Artloa prepered breakfast, ba related bia adventarea ia tba earlier part of tka preceding day. He discovered tbe Indian encampment about three miles Irom cor own, And while endeAToriag to spy on l tbeir tsabari, had Ueo fiit.l upon sad wonnded by a prowler. Throw ing bimaeif on tba savag ba tl tinned birn with a blow frtru Ibe butt of bit tide, and ca;d lo lb tamp, lltr be bad laki u tbe precaution to tltciv lit Indian and lo warn ut, with which tb iadr ba already been mad Acquainted, lie wtt however, tpetdiiy puitued by lb b , band of tarac. and, afier a bard strug gle, captured. It was dining Ibis purtaii of Marston thai I snived al the camp, and my having takea the river roar., and their entire ignorauca of ven my t list en was the resson of my being enabled to gain Ibe the Bluff uuperceived. Tbe Indiaas proved to ba Uieckfect, and were uodooblona plundering expedltlou, as their pscks were filled with many articles which belong to whites alone. We of couise sppropriated their horses and traps and having ancarthed our con oca led pel-tries-set off tor Fort (jeorge, where we arrived without further adventure.
