the occasion of celebrating the Annivcrfrry
Fcitival of their Tutelar Saint, on the
30th nil. ivtuJung by the author, and zuas
received hv the Society with that approba
tion its due.
Tit hick welcome, thapleafmg occaiion that calls
The Sons of St. Andrew, 011 :e more, (palls,
With love of their country, which changc never
To rejoice on Columbia's (hore :
In fwsst social mirth, let us clieerful combine
Nor purt)% nor fidioi; deftri-y
The tie-that unites us in fricudihip d'vinc,--
And elates evety boiem with joy.
Blind prejudice,hence,fromthcfewallsquickly fly 1
And re I.fort fevcrc, be our guide; [high,
Tho' in Europe's proud annal-, old Scotia ranki
In her virtues alone be our pride ;
Our Saint and blrfs'd patron, no politics taught,
'Twashis million to fotten the heart,
Hisdo&rines with love andberjvolcnce fraught,
No partial inftrudions impart.
Yet if Tons in the glory of fires may lie vain,
The records of lame shall declare, (tain,
Howourunceltorsfought, their beftrightsto fuf-
And the laurels of vigors to (hare', [in chains,
"When Romo,con<i'rmg Rome, half the globe held
'Gatnfthcrlegions, [plains
Repell'd the bai'e yoke from their hills and their
Courting death and defeifing to yield.
Thro*ages, jmfullyM, tneir valour hasflione,
But valour's the leall of their praise, [won,
Their country is iirew'd with the garlands they
And the mufev have crown'd rhem with lays :
Simplicity, truth and affe&ion c ndear
Old Caledon's heath,and bleJc shore ;
May wewhohave wander'd, still honest, sincere,
Our country's fair virtues adore.
O'erthc wide rolling ocean by fortune convey'd,
T© climes, where bright Liberty reigns,
May the worth, by ourfathers, so often difplay'd,
Ever glide in their emigrant train,
Whither born or adopted Columbia's Tons,
'Tisoursin her plans to unite,
Hedefervesnot her favours, who haughtily shuns
The toil of supporting h 1* right.
While the copious horn of plenty supplies,
With richest profufion our board,
May wethinkof the wretch whoin solitude sighs,
And a boon from our union afford :
O long be it ours, in the regions of woe,
To diffiife the foft balm of relief,
To lessen the ills that from penury flow,
And dry up the channels of grief.
With the good and the brave, let us join hand in
The throne of fair freedom to guard.
With honour to fall, or with Liberty Hand,
Independence, our glorious reward;
Should tyrants alTail the fvveetgift we receiv'd,
Trueardour (hallfwell every breast,
And the actions of old,on our mountainsatchiev'd
Revive on the plains of the weft.
From the MaJfjfhuJetts Magazine,

INFLEXIBLY upright, this good man trod,
With firm unvarying Hep, the mora] :
Just to his iellow-nun, hnn'elf, his G«>d,
His spirit bade the king of terrors hail.
Sleep, take (by reft", the toils of life a»e done,
Soon (hall the unclouded morn arifc,
And deathless virtue's cvei lucid fun
Forever gild, for thee ferrner skies.
Ther&lhall thv mortal worth, to view confeft,
Anvu the mjultons ihc blelt,
By heaven's appending smiles approv'd,
Shew to the fpints of the: pcrtett just,
That lie, whofc number mourn thy Fainted dust,
Spake only truth of him hi* bosom lov'd.
A gentleman jufl returned from
the fputh western territory, has fa
vored us with the following infor
mation :
_ O" Sunday the 41)1 inft there ar
rived at Knozville eight Indians
from the Cherokee nation ; three of
tl efe were prir.dpai chiefs, viz.
The Standing Turkey, the War
rior's Son of KfhVtlaula, and the
Hanging Maw, from the beloved
town of Ghota. The object of their
Vmrrev was to hold a sulk withGo
-vernor Blount ; to ad'ure him of the
pacific <!ifjwfition of their nation,
and to requeil that they may befuf
iered to iiunt without niolellation.
On Saturday the tenth, thty were
lafely ctindutfed to the bank of the
river, opposite to the town of Coy
•ties, 011 their veinrff home, bv Ma
jor George Fmrogood, and a party
of gentlemen.
i lie Btiva party of Indians stole
eight h-orfes from Gamble's flat ion
about 12 miles from KnoxHlle. '
On Friday the ninth, two regi
ments of territorial troops, under
the command of Colonel Landon
Carter and Col. Gilbert Chriltian,
marched from Knoxville, to guard
the iVomie'is, and to build forts and
llations Between the Papo Fold and
the juii(stiou of the Clinch and Te
lle ft e.
To the honour of our weft em bre
thren, let it that of
the 1 wo regiments above-mentioned,
(even companies were entirely c»m
pofed of volunteers, armed aiid
equipped at their own (txpeiic£.
On Saturday the lOth, Gefits*al
Sevier pui fired his route from Knox
ville, escorted by a troop of horfif,
raised in Greene county, and com
manded by captain Jamej Richard
son, to take the command of the
frontier army, now amounting to
from twelve to fifteen hurfdi ed men.
Our informant mentions, that this
troop of horse, though
embodied, were at leaflf *iqual in
inajply and martial appearance, as
well as in their uniform,'hel"fes,and
other equipments, to any corps of
horse he ever law in the regular
continental or European armies.
On Monday the 12th, the hoofe
of lihenezer By rain,on Heaver creek,
(a branch os-Clinch) seven miles
from Knoxvirfc, was attacked in the
morning, about sunrise, by a party
of fifteen Cherokee Indites. Thev
beat in the window with (.heir roros
hawks, and presented two
but before they could observe their
destined vi&ims, Mr.. Byrstni and
Mr. Jefferies, the only two men in
the house, fired at the two Indians
who appeared at the window, when
they both fell, and the Indian party
immediately fled.
The gallant defenders of their
houfhold gods, then went out and
found one of the Indians dead, who«(
theyfcalped ; they afterwards track
ed the fugitives about two miles, fy
the blood of their woanded compa
nion—here they found a confidcrt
ble quantity of blood,*fome human
flefh and splinterS of bones j at this
fpoi thej ftippofed the wounded In
dian expired, aud was carried off
by his aftbeiates, as the bloody «£ck
was no longer vifibje,
Thus the cGol bravery of two re
foluce men not only saved their
own lives, but preserved a number
of women and children, who were
at the time in the haufe, from th#
butchering cruellies of these re
niorfeJefs savages. It deserves to
be noticed, that Mr. Byram is up
wards of sixty years of age.
. Notwithftandingthe contiguity of
these depredations to tho feat of ter
ritorial government, the inhabitants
feeni as unapprehensive of danger
as the citizensof Richmond are, and
it was with difficulty that Governor
Blount, who lives in a retired house,
about a mile froin Knoxville, could
be prevailed on to accept of a
guard, which he limited to fix men.
The gentleman who has obliged
us with the above inre!]ig?nrr, h«s
brought to this city the lcalp of the
Indian killed in the attack on Mr.
Byram's house.

So much lor geography generally. With rc
fpc6t to the prcfent plan, let it luffice to remark,
that GuU»rie's Geography lia.s been long acknow
