SATURDAY.* FEBRUARY 5, 1870.
For the Dispatch. FLOBSDA?Ctonttnaed* JOSK DCYAL, OF FLORIDA. I visited the grave xf this greet and brave man, in Tallahassee, not without emotion. He was a native of our own city?born in his father's dwelling, which etood on the northeast corner of Grace and Filth streets. After a wild and rambling boyhood and youth he settled in the Terri tory of Florida, of which he became the first Governor. Washington Irving has im mortalised him, and described his youthful adventures under the name of Ralph Ring wood. He ran off in early youth from Richmond, wandered west and south, and finally settled in what is now Florida, near Tallahassee. President Jackson, who knew his manly worth, made him first Govornor of that Territory. He had the hard task of keeping the turbulent Seminole Indians in order. As be knew the Indian character well, and that not only a determined front, but the most exact justice in all deal ings, was what was required in every trans action with them, ho succeeded very well, and acquired great influence over them. Thov were uneasy, however, about the con tinually increasing number of the whites, nnd some of the chiefs were anxious for war. One evening an Indian interpreter rovlc up to his house and told that the mon of the tribe, fifteen hundred strong, were met in council, and that one influential chief named Neamathla was urging them to commence hostilities. Without a mo ment's hesitation he mounted his horse and rode, accompanied by the interpreter, to ward the council, to which he had not been invited. Next morning as he approached within a few miles of the place the In dian's oonrage failed him, and he refused to go on, saving that it would be certain death to both of them to enter the council in the then excited state of the tribe. Du val tore a leaf from his note-book, wrote on it the situation, gave it to the Indian with orders to-carry it to the military post on the St. John's, a hundred miles off, and pro ceeded alone. Before he had gone a mile the Indian overtook him, shamed out of his cow ardice, and said that he would stand by him. .They rode up behind the council-house, stood conceaiod in the woods, and heard Neahmnthla, in a violent speech, denoun cing the whites and urging a war of sur prise and extermination upon them. The interpreter translated, and Duval heard the tribe approve. He ordered the Indian to fol low, and rode slowly round, suddenly ap peared in front of the orator and in the midst of the assembled tribe. As he rode slowly into their very midst Nenhmathla stopped in utter surprise, but every rifle was levelled, and the sharp click of the guns brought to a full cock was the only sound heard. Slowly he rode up to the platform, halted, deliberately dismounted, und yet not a gun was fired. Below the platform, in a circle of the old men, stood a distinguished chief. Suddenly Duval handed him the bridle, saying in Indian, u Hold my horse." In surprise the man took it, nnd then Duval knew that ho was safe. Mounting the platform, he seized Neahmathla by the throat and hurled him out into the crowd, took his place, and addressed the assembly. The interpreter translated. He rated them soundly for assembling for such a purpose without informing him, spoke of his just ronduct in all dealings with them, appealed to them if lie had ever defrauded them or allowed any white man to do them harm, told them that although they might be as numerous us the trees the whites were more than the leaves on those trees, and would overwhelm them. Ho would not call them to account for this day's proceed ings, however, but that they must them selves punish the authors of trouble, and destroy every one who tried to create war between the white and the red man. His boldnesB, his influence, and his eloquence, eucceedcd. The council decided to remain at peace, and gave every promise of good behavior. Neahraathln retired baffled, and was soon ufter slain by his own people, nnd the peace of the territory preserved*. This deed speaks for itself. I have no com ments to make upon its heroism and self devotion. while Uuval held the Government the Indians were quiet, and everything went on well. Van Buren came in, however, re moved him, put some fool favorite in his place, treaties were broke, the Indians out raged, and the Seminole war began, and cost us life and treasure. It threw back the prosperity of the Territory twenty years. Indeed, the marks of this war are still perceptible in Florida. These Indians arc hard to catch and hard to kill. Their land is one for ambush, and they used every artifice of savage war to maintain their country. I heard many tales of their courage, and endurance, and skill in escaping an enemy. I am told that young Indian babies, oven, will not cry, lest the enemy might hear them. Even whon a camp was surprised the little crea tures, too young to walk, would crawl oil in the bushes and hido,liko young partridges. I wish whito babies would learn the lesson of silence. 1 saw a vault in the fort of St. Augustine in which an Indian chief had been con fined ; the window, high up and strongly barred, would not have passed a child. The chief deliberately starved himself for two weeks, until he was as thin as a weasel, and then crept through aud escaped. What endurance that fellow must have had to starve with food beside him (brought in daily) until he wub thin enough to squeeze his bag of bones through that narrow slit. The soldiers never caught him again. LAKE JACKSON. This shallow sheet of water is five miles from Tallahassee. It is thirty miles around it, and yet it will sometimes for several years disappear, all except a hole in the bottom some three hundred yards across, through which the water has passed off to Bome lake or river. The planters mutually extend their feqees, and cultivato the lake bottom in com until, al ter a longer or shorter interval, the waters rise again and cover their original surface. This is the case with many lakes in Florida; they are very un certain, and vary not only as the seasons are wet or dry, but from these subterranean connections which they havo with one an other. Of course, during the summer such neighborhoods are unhealthy. FRAKULLA SPRING. This is one of the wonders of Florida and of the continent of America. Indeed, I doubt if Buch another spring is to be found anywhere in the world. It is about eighteen miles south of Tallahassee, and yet, from the difficulty of obtaining vehicles, is almost inaccessible. The country near it is somewhat hilly, and of limestone formation. Suddenly the traveller finds himself on the brink of a chasm?a large, deep Bpring filled to the brim and running over with clear, cool water. The spring is a hundred feet across, ? and of unknown depth?no sounding-line has yet reached the bottom. A hundred feot below, a rough ledge of rock fills uphalf the space, the rock glistening in the sunlight; the other part is merely deep and dark; you look down through clear water to a depth that makes the eye ache in trying to penetrate the immensity. The water magnifies every object thrown in; the fiBh look much larger in the spring than when taken out. Shoals of them may be seen careering through the depths, and are sometimes 6peared or harpooned. You have the sport of teeing your game as well as hunting it. As you cast a white stone into the deepest part it is curious to watch it ciaking and sinking until in the vast dis tance it is out of sight. On the ledge of the rock the bones of a mammoth were d;sco verod, aud with grappling irons brought to the surface. It shows the antiquity of theI ??'? ? ?K* IUft IU VlilVHV AVk UBI nnu n?vw w ^rr.^ j tomb?a viat grow?fair this gigantic mon-' iter of the oldon time. The water bursts | *f> with force, keeping.the whole mass In constant vibration, and flows off a broad river tifo feet deep towards the sea. The spring forms and feeds tho river, aDd its flow !e without cessation or diminution. The banks are densely crowded with live oak covered with Spanish moss, and the waving streamers dip in the waters, while the sunlight caste a greenish reflected tinge upon tho waters of the spring, where wove and forest meet and mingle. It is altogether the most remarkable ob ject for the traveller in all Florida. J. P. L. FRIED FRENCHMAN. DINNER WITH THE KINO OF THE CANNIBAL ISLAND?. Mark Twain In fhc Buffalo Express. "Ifow, as regards those missionaries," continued tho King, reflectively, scratching his head with the fork which I had pre sented him, and which he had already learned to use a good deal, though not al ways in a strictly legitimate way, " as re gards those missionaries, I will say that their landing here was unexpected, but I hastened to give them every protection. And I gave them full privilege to teach. They were the first whites that some of my people had seen, and of course these simple natives had a natural curiosity to experiment upon them ! I could not rea sonably deny them this little gratification, though I counselled them to practice as lit tle cruelty upon the strangers aB was com patible with a fair deBire for information and the necessity for wholesome amuse ment. They removed Johnson's ears, and that was a thing I regretted seriously, un til it was explained to me that a great chief's little sick child desired them to play with?and if you could have seen how much more contented and restful the poor young thing was after it acquired tnem you would have felt how blessed a thing it is to be able to contribute to the happiness of even a little child." 11 It was the impulse of a generous heart?it was a spirit of liberality as rare as it is beautiful. And how did Johnson like it?" "Oh, Johnson said it was the will of God. It was like Johnson to say that. But the missionaries were right well treated on the whole. Tho natives tried various inter esting experiments upon tlietn, such as scorching them, and scalping them, and all that sort of thing, and I killed one of them myself; not in malice, but because I had a mrious caprice to see how he would go with jnions. lie was a failure. Old and tough. [Jndcrdone, my icahine said?a shade too venerable, I said. Give me pungency and endorness for a combination. Onions and nfancy is my idea of comfort. You people lon't know how to cook. No, as I was saying, he Kanakas experimented a good deal on he missionaries in the interest of cience, and the experiments were ;enerally fatal, though I urged them not o waste the missionaries, for we could not mow when we would have another lot. But ?mong those that survived was Williams, md it was. he that sent home those damng ng reportB to your country, in which he pok6 of the treatment of his brethren in \ peevish, fault-finding spirit, ill-becoming lis sacred calling. I supposo your peo )le believed every word of it, and just umped to the conclusion that we were a rnse, inhospitable race. Never explained ibout Johnson's ears, perhaps??never old why I killed that other fellow ??con ound me, it does seem to me that eomcpeo jle take pleasure in misrepresenting things, ind bringing obloquy upon their fellow sreatures. Sometimes I feel as if I had -ather be dead and at rest. The world ieems so shameless in its judgments, and >ne's life is so embittered by the malicious jriticisms of those whose hearts are not in sympathy with him." " It teas pitiful in that Williams after all jrou had done for his party." "I should say so ! But never mind, let's be cheerful, any way. How are you making out? Let mo help you to a fried plantain. Take some more of the pup ? Vol Try some of the human being? By jicorge, tills fellow is done to a charm, fou'll like him. He was a Frenchman? iplendid chap?young, and hale, and learty?beautiful to look upou. Do you prefer white meat or dark ? Le! me help pou to some of the breast ? Ah, me, I have inown this youngster for thirteen years? ished with him, swam with him, sailed with him, gave a couple of my sisters and four aunts to him. I loved him. He was nlways good. He is good now." Taking up a fragment of his late brother in-law, the King took a bite, and then gazed long and pensively upon the remainder, till by-and-bye the muscles of his mouth began to twitch with emotion, and presently two 5r three great tears swelled from his eyes and coursed down his cheeks. Then, in a choking voice, he murmured : "Alas, they have fried him! " I laid down the breast-bone of deceased, and burst into tears also. Such is the sym pathetic power of grief. It was nothing whether they fried him or boiled him; it waB nothing to me how' this poor foreigner was cooked ; I was only eating him out of vain curiosity, and not because I loved him, not because I respected him, not because I wished to curry favor with his relatives. Yet X wept. " They have tried him: " said tne mng. "Alas, pooi* Gaultier. However, let us cheer up; let us be content. But I will have my cook for breakfast for this, and I will fry him, and see how he likes it. There is nothing like a sharp example to teach a man, my friend. But don't be idle, sir; take some more of the fried Frenchman. I ought to be ashamed to offer you such a dish, but you see how 1 am situated, lie ought to have been baked?this fellow ought. We always bake a Frenchman; we never think of frying him. But I wish you had known this fellow?so kind, so gentle, so loving; and you see yourself how tender he is. But that Williams business; I wish you would struighten that up for me when you go back to America. If your people could only know the facts in the case, thoy would not blame me. It is a little hard, after I have spent all these years in building up a good name, to have it all knocked in the head by this shabby adventurer. Now, what he called a 1 hideous revel,' and a 1 feast of devils,' and all sorts of vile and wicked names, was nothing in the world, I give you my sacred honor, but a simple barbecue? seventeen old crippled natives, no account under the sun, just an expense to the com munity, and I fricassed them to give a lit tle treat to some visiting town chiefs (aldermen you call them in your coun try), who were here for a day or two from Fejee Island. 'Feast of devils,' indeed?made of dried and skinny old rapscallions that the island is a thousand times "better off without, and I am sure it was honorable in us to be hospitable to those strangers. Though between you and me it was an awful swindle on them? though, oh, don't mention it!?more cho lera morbus and indigestion jand general suffering among those chiefs, you never saw the like of it in your life! Now, Twain, you eee how much truth there was in Wil liams's statements?all that row about no thing. You can set this thing right in your country?you can do it easy?simply just explain the facte?and anything I can do for you I'll do it?you can depend on me. Send me a copy of your weekly. I can't read it, but a little literature can't hurt a man anyhow. Ccesar's ghost!" " Oh, heaven ! what is the matter, your gracious majesty ?" " Oh, misery ! oh, murder! oh, despera tion ! " " Oh, what is it, your imperial majesty! I beseech you?" He had sprung to his feet, and his fixed before hlta. -?? r li&ipi ?sf......... "Oh, my brairi reels! This heir, a Frenchman's hair f There must be some mistake! A horrid stispiclbn burst upon me ! Ah, what is thin I see f?this thing? this accusing mark I A strawberry on the left arm .'?it is, it is my long lost bro ther!"^ Alas, it was even so. It was his longj lost brother?what wns left of him. Poor, ooor fellow, he wns only fit tc be shovelled into a basket and given to the poor, now. The King fell to the floor insensible. He grew worse and worse, and the next day his removal to the country was ordered. Many sympathizing relatives and friends follow ed the palanquin and did what they could to nllcvinte the sufferings of their unhappy sovereign. It turned out afterward that the sweet heart of the Frenchman had made a sur reptitious exchange of marketing in the King's kitchen before daylight on that fatal day. She had bought the King's brother from a wandering tribe that belonged in the great wilderness at the other end of the island. She bought him purposely to make that exchange, though of course she did not know who he was. The girl and the Frenchman escaped from the island jn a canoe that very night, and were happily married, or drowned, I don't know which. would have liked to taste that French man. _ The Annihilation of the Wicked.? This doctrine, according to the Methodist Home Journal, is taking root and spread ing among thinking men, both in and out of that Church, and both in and put of its ministry, with a growth that is obvious and threatening. It is asserted that the ques tion whether the Scriptures promise per petual existence to any but the good must soon have a thorough re-hearing in that denomination. j A Sodu8 correspondent of the Lyons Re publican says : " The male portion of the community at Sodus Point has gone stark mad on the subject of ice-boating. The speed with which these boats skim over the ice is almost incredible. When the wind is fair, one mile per minute is nothing extra [ ordinary; and some ice-boaters confidently ! assert that they can make their mile in forty seconds. When the ice is smooth and sound the sport is attended with little or no danger. But it sometimes happens that there are cracks and air-holes, and to run into one of these is not so agreeable." An essay on "lying symptoms" was read at a recent session of Chicago Acade my of Medicine, in which the author main tained that it is easier to find out what ails an infant than an adult, for though the former cannot talk, it also cannot play the hypocrite. At the late Woman's Rights Convention in Washington a member said that "woman wants bread, she wants work, she wants clothcB." Especially clothes. If there is anything a woman wants worse than clothes it is a husband?until she gets him.? Chicago Times. AC'JTloa SALES-Tftis Day.
