St'BANTON, Pa., May 14. -The elab orate preparations iD progress among the people of Pennsylvania for a cen tennial commemoration of the Battle and Massacree ot Wyoming, recall one of the most thrilling incidents of the Revolution The name of Wyom iog and its said history have obtained a world-wide reputation, and naturally tha thousands who have t>een stirred by the recc lection of its w *#, will fee] an interest in the forthcoming celebra tion, which will occur on the 3d and 4th of July next, the first being the date of the battle and massacre. The invasion of the valley was ac complished on the 3d of July, 1778, when a number of British soldiers, commauded by Colonel Jehn Butler, and accompanied by 700 lu'lians, led by the cruel halfbreed, Brant, or Gl-en-gw a-toh, descended upon the de fenceless settlers. They were met by a few companies of old men and t>oys, whos extreme age and youth exempted them from nerving in the ranks of the liepuplic, and for several hoars a fierce battle raged on the banks ot the Bus quhanna. But the contest was un equel. .The Indiana, from their am bush, kept up a deadly flank tire, which soon thinned the ranks of the yeomen, and utterly shattered, they were forced to fall back, despite the appeals ot their curageous leader. Col. /tfhulon Butler, who cried "Dou't leave roe, my children, and the day it ours." The Indians seeing their foes retreat, full upon them and slaughtered without mercy, uien, women and children. When the Hix Nations espoused the English cause against the Colonies, it was part of the compact that the latter should lead them against Wyoming, to afford them an opportunity of being avenged upou the settlers, Who they regard as usurpers of the red men's paradise, a Lame sometimes given to the valley; and so, the first skirmish being over, the lindiai ? gave full scope to the spirit c:' destruction which possessed them, and, breaking • way from their leaders, they reaped a terrible revenge upou the geutle people of that Aarcdian abode. About .'JOO were put to death by torch, totua hawk, and spear, regardless of age or sex. ami the most cruel tortures that a fiendish spirit could devise were em ployed to make the last lingering moment of their victims full of a<£ony. An awful night followed that day of caruage. The huts and homes, the crops and orchards, were set on fire, and the devestation of the entire settlement was made complete. Sever al were dro-.vued in their efforts to es cape down the river under the cover of night, but a party of a hundred women and children succeeded in making their way to the mountains, under the lead ership of an old man, who was their soul protector. But though they fled the terrors of the massacre, it was to encounter hardships equally severe. Their path lay through the Green Swamp, now known as the "Shades of Death," by reas«>u of the nutufier who have perished there, and the suffering they endured from fear and famine and sickness are unmatched by any thing on record. One poor woman, whose bat>e died at her breast in a vaiu effort to obtain nourishment, carried her dead darling twenty miles rather than leave the precious burden behind to fall prey to the wolves; And many other incidences of love and devo tiou are related. Only a few survived the fatigue of the march and the plague ue which overtook them in the swamp. The bodies uf those who were mass acred in Wyoming Valley, Uy unburied on the plain for months, untill a de tachment of soldiers gathered them to gether one night and consigned them to a large hole in the ground, fearful lest a more respectful interment might excite the enmity of the Indians, who were still prowlliug aboutjthe neighbor hood. The result was that the exact location of the remains was unknown to the friend* of tho dead for uiany jears, »nd their discovery at last was a mors accident. An unassuming obelisk commemorative of the virtues of the fallen heroes has been raised over their restiug place by a patriotic women of Wyoming, and it is visited every Summer by hundreds of persons attract ed to the scene by a spirit of reverence sr curiosity In order to make the coming Ceuten nial a* realistic a* |K>s*ible, a number of huts are in process along the river, to look exactly like those which stood there one honored years ajfo, and the old f«,rta urn rebuilt. A tril»- of trivlidly li diaos drtailed their Chief, a few days ago, to wait on the (' »mmit tee of Arrangements aid «tft r lluir services iu full oostume, and their «p --ptsrai.ee will doubtless aid the pictur r«oue features of the reprtsentatiuu. President Hayes and a mitul*r ot men prominent in politic* aid literature have al*> signified thei intention of being present. The first day will IK devolea to odes and oratit us commem orative of the event. Tho words of a poem by Misi Susan E. Dickinson have been set to music, aud will be sung by one hundred voices, and a similar con tribution has been made by another accomplished lady, who retires behind the non tie ylnnu of "Stella of Lacka wanna." The programme for the Fourth of July consists of a graui pa geant, participated in by the civic and military societies of Pennsylvania, to be followed, in the evening, by a dis play of fire-works along the river banks a distance of tweuty miles of charming scenery. A sketch of would be in complete without mentioning the " Bloody Queen Esther." an Indian fury, who, with ler own hand, put twenty men to death. Her victims had been taken prisoners, and were prom ised mercy, but just at the moment when they hoped to be released, they were led from the fort where they had l*en held captive, and ranged around a rock, upou which their murderess, with death-maul and tomahawk, dashed out their brain*. It is known this day SEATTLE, WASHINGTON TERRITORY, THURSDAY, JUNE la, 1878. as Queen Esther's Rock, and the por tion which rose above the surface of the earth has been almost carried away by relic hunters. The story of Frances Slocum, who was carried off from her mother § door, a mere babe, by the Indians, and discovered half a century Uter by her brothers, who found that she had forgotten her language and was happy and healthy with the " children of the forest," is too well known to need reproduction; never theless, owing to the touching circum stances of the case, it occupies consid erable prominence in the tnditione of the massacre. The nephew of Prances Biocutu is at present residing in Scran ton and remembers having heard bis father describe the meeting with his sister. AKoKO the uses of adversit? are these: You can wear your clothes. You are not troubled with visitors. You are exonerated from making calls. Borers do not bore you. No one ever thinks of pressing you with a testimonal. Flatterers do net shoot their rubbish into your ears. Im postor* know it is of no use to bleed you. You have saved many a debt, many a deception, many a heahrtche. And lastly, if you have a true friend in the worle, you are sure to know it. MISCELLANEOUS. mi rift urn. PACIFIC DIVISION. ITT.
