place near New York, three companies were di

promptly obeyed though it took away a great

r or two years hostilities were waged at a dis

for the English, the tide of war rolled toward
Wyoming. Congress was urged to. send the

two-.Itfdians, one of whom was close upon him.
The youth laid hold of the long tail of his com
mander's horse to aid him in his flight. " The
pursuers kept at their sr eed and hardly lost,
ground." They were sure that the boy could
not keep histoid, and would fall an easy prey
TJustthen Butler caught sight of Richard in
man, one of the best shots in the valley, who
had fallen behind on the march, and had not
been engaged in the fight. "Inman," he shout
ed, "shoot that Indian!" The rifle rose with
a steady aim tho foremost Indian fell dead
his comrade turned back, and the boy escaped.
Butler distanced the pursuers, reached the fort
with the tidings of the disaster, crossed the
river the next day to the fort at Wikcsbarra,
and, seating his wife behind him on the horse,
fled from the ' valley. : He had fought bravely
during the war, and had abundant reasons for
not wishing to be made a prisoner. '.- ..
Some of the fugitives swam over to Mono
easy Island, whither they were followed by their
pursuers and killed. Among these was Henry
Pencil, whese brother John was among the
Tories..' The tory caught a glimpse of his
brother hidden among the willows. "So, it is
you," he said, presenting his gun. The fugi
tive begged for his life, promising to serve his
brother as long as he lived. "All this is mighty
well," replied the brother; , "but you arc a
damned rebel ;" and shot him dead on the spot.

Indians. They came to regard him as stricken
with a curse, and resolved thereafter to leave
him to his fate. "He too wicked," they said ;
"Iudian no more help him." - Ho was a third
time attacked by a pack of wolves. The In
dians, true to their resolution,, would not save
him, and he was torn in pieces by the wolves.
. The morning of the 4th of July broke gloom
ily over the Valley ' of Wyoming. Butler
summoned Forty Fort to surrender. The terms
ot capitulation -were soon arranged, ihe in
habitants were to give up their arms, surrender
the public stores, and remain neutral during
the war, retaining peaceful possession of their
farms, and Butler was to use his influence to
preserve their property from plunder. On the
morning of the 5th, Butler writh his rangers,
marched in at one a"e, and the Indians at an
other. The Seneca chief glared around suspi
ciously, as though apprehending a snare.
Queen Father addressed Denisbn in a taunting
manner, but was checked by the' British com
mander." "Women should be seen not heard,"
said he. Among the prisoners he saw Boyd, a !
deserter from the Dntish. "Boyd," he said to
him, "go to that tree I" The poor fellow claim
ed to be treated as a prisoher of war. ;. f'Go to
the tree, sir I repeated Dutler, sternly, lie
obeyed and was shot down at a signal from But
ler. iNo other lile was taken after the capitula
tion. -.ine stories ot subsequent massacres
which were reported at the time, and which
made their way into the histories of, the day,
and have since been repeated, were sheer fabri
cations. Butler soon found that in guaranteeing ths
property of the people he had promised more
than he could perform. The Indians laid hands
on everything whieh came in their way and took
whatever they could lay their hands on.
Butler with his troops, soon left the valley.
The Indians scattered, themselves in every di
rection destroying everything which they could
not carry on. 'Ihe cattle were turned into the
cornfields, the houses were plundered and burn
ed. . A few that stood near the fort at Wilkes-
barra were spared, but every other dwelling in
the valley was destroyed '
In a few weeks the fugitives began to return,
in order to secure such ot their crops as had
escaped destruction. In October they under
took to gather the remains of their comrades
who had fallen and to give them a'decent bu
rial.' The weather had been so hot and dry that
tho mutilated corpses -were shriveled up, and
inoffensive, ' . ;
They could only be recognized by the cloth
ing that remained upon them. They were ta
ken up with ' pitchforks, " and deposited in a
common grave, which remained unmarked for
more than a half a century. . At last a granite
monument was erected - over the spot, bear
ing appropriate inscriptions, and recording the
names of those who fell in that fatal battle.

Blindness is very common among horses . in
our ciues. aius ls-causeu in a great uieastuts
by keeping them in dark, confined stables, and
shading their eyes : with harness blinders.
Dark, lii-ventilated cellar stables are quite com
mon; this stupid praetice should be abolished,
because' such stables, are very detrimental to
the'health of these noble animals. : All stables
should be dry, roomy structures, provided with
windows to anord abundant light, and should,
also, he frequently whitewashed. . The horse is
a native of dry, snnny regions, and requires to
be kept dry and warm in order to attain to the
greatest perfection. ; - . . '; t .
I'losc and confined stables, just like those
which arc so common, are - the frequent cause
of that violent disease called glanders. .A few
years since, great ravages were committed
among the cavalry horses of Franco by this
disease; but it is- now almost unknown in that
country.- This result has been . brought about
by simply making larger stables, doubling the
size ot the stalls, and securing good ventilation
In proportion to their bulk, horses need more
fresh air than men, in order to perform the
functions ot respiration; yet they are com
monly cooped up in narrow stalls, which are
not large enough to keep a dormouse's lungs at
As the season is. now approaching -when ow
ing to inclement weather, horses will be more
confined indoors, those who possess such ani
mals should nop devote some attention to pro
vide them with stables suitable to their nature
and wants, and by so doing they will greatly
increases their health and longevity,'.' :
One quart of corn meal, one pint of" wheat
flour, two eggs, and a little salt, with some
buttermilk sufficient to make a very stiff batter.
3Iix thoroughly, then add one teaspoonful of
sod?., dissolved in a littlo hot watter. Stir this
in, and pour into wellgrcased pans, Bufficent to
be one and a half or two. inches thick when
cooked. . Place in a hot oven, and bake till it
is done, say half an hour. Carry to' the table
hot. If all should not be used, bake over again,
and it is as good as when first baked. Half a
pint of flour and one egg will be very good,
but not quite so good, as the abov.'
The sourer the buttermilk the better, if it is
not bitter. Success depends very much on the
due proportion of acid and alkali: . ' '-;
Fine mqal makes much better bread than
does coarse. If it does not keep as well, pro
vide less at a time. Dent, or gourdseed corn
makes better meal than flint corn.. - '
Some are shocked at the idea of eating
drugs with their food, and exclaim against the
use of alkali in cooking. Let such consider
that acid neutralizes the caustic property of
the alkali; and if they never eat any thing
more unhealthy than that they will do well

THE STlTiOK.M STEB AND THE
Some time ago a young gentleman; evidently
a foreigner, and who, - we .believe, had been
studying farming in East Lothian, called, at
the station of the North British railway here,
making -inquiries about the price of a third
class ticket to Hull. On being told that there
was no third-class by the evening train to Hull
he seemed embarrassed. ' After some hesitation
he informed the -station-master,- Mr." '. James
Bruce, that in was of great-importance, to him
to get oh by the first train, but- that, unfortu
nately, a remittance which he had exnected
had not come to hand, and he was unable to
pay for a second class ticket. Mr. Bruce see
ing, no doubt, at a glance, the sterling honest-
man written in the face of the youth, at once
offered to pay his" fare to York, and if he re
quired any more ,money to give H Aim.;-
This offer was, of cpurse," gratefullyaccepted,
arid" the stranger, went on 'his way?. In ' the
course ofa,. post or two "ft letter, wasr received
from . Hull, inclosing the money. Jeifl"and!
gratefully thanking Mi, Bruce;., go Ihe.affair;
is ended, thought he, and so most woulcTthlnk.
But not so.' Some few days ago a rather strange
looking packet was delivered- by the. po6ulun
to Mr. Bruce, whichon beipgopetd, disclosed '
to his astonished view an elcgar.t 'sUver cup, !
with a suitable inscription" engraven upon it, as
a token of a Norwegian's gratitude and "in re- j
membrance of Frederick" Du. of Christiana.
