My readers have doubtless noticed in the Advertiser, some years since, a nar rative of the remarkable escapo of John Harris from being burnt alive by the In dians, on the spot where Harrisburg, the seat of government of Pennsylvania, has been since built. That publication has been the means of bringing to light sever al interesting incidents connected with Harris and his wife, one of those pioneer mothers in whom the dangers and exi gencies of frontier life, develope the highest degree of.daring, compatible with exercise of that sound judgment which is of yet greater importance in that sphere of existence. Harris, as had been stated in the nar rative referred to, was a trader among two or three savage tribes, whose head quarters seem to have extended along the west branch of the Susquohanna, even in this day of improvement embracing some of the wildest mountain and river scenery in the United States. The wolf and the fox still dispute possession of ex tensive tracts in this region with the set tier, and even the panther and the bear I : 11 1 1 1 i A I.

Having ascertained that they collected once a week for religious worship, they made their arrangements to attack Paxton meeting house, and cut off all the inhab itants at a single blow. They rendez voused in considerable numbers at a spot west of the Blue Mountains, and poured in on the settlement thorugh Monda Gap, about fourteen miles, from the Susquehan na, with such eclercity and secrecy as to station themselves in the thicket around the meeting houso, without the least sus picion having been formed by the settlers of any sinister designs." They had, how ever, missed one day in their reckoning, and iaken Saturday in place of the Sah bath, for their ambus.cade. As the usual hour passed without any of the whites making theft appearance, the Indians be gan to-suspect that they ' had ; in some way or other been put on their guard, and fearing injury to themselves, they broke up and made their way home with out loss of time, and as quickly and se cretly as they, had found J&cir way into the settlement. .

Harris generally rode a horse, which was well known to the Indians.

Harris was as usual mounted, and making his way clown to tho pass, when he found himself confronted by anr old chief, well known to him as Indian John who stood tno patn-way wuu u , shoot. He was compelled to risk he shot. Leaping instantly to the ground ? ungirthcd tho saddle, held t by he gths twisted over his arm, and vaulting on his horses back, stooped forwards raised the saddle and holding it m front bo as to form a shield he ru lied at his enemy at the top of his speed. The In- ' dian sprang to one side, disconcerted by P mnvomnnh nn( fnftrfnl i the sudden movement, and iearlul ot missing, reserved his fire. As soon as Harris passed thc foe, he swung the sad dle over his head, so as to form a protec tion for his rear, and pursued his way to tho river. Tho Indian fired, his ball taking effect on thcTaddle, tho rider and hoase escaping unharmed. One of the party, whose hoise had been shot down (a little Dutch Doctor,) had reached thc edge of the river, and when Harris overtook him there, begged with such earnestness, that ho would take him on behind him, that Harris could not resist bis entreaties, although fearful of encumbering his progress thro' the water with thc added weight. Jrle was accordingly taken' on behind, but they had hardly got fifty yards into tho stream, when a ball struck the doctor killing him instantly. The Indians were at the horse's heels' and tho humanity of Harris in place of endangering his cscope, had proved-the'meaus of saving his' life.

The Last Coiiiinjlnisi) At a dinner party, a few days since, while champagne was circulating pretty freely, and jests were sparkling as sparkling wine, one modest young gentleman, who was engaged in the turkey department, suddenly proposed a conundrum: " Why are the most of people who eat turkey, like babies ?" A great silence followed, accompanied with deep reflection. No one could an swer, all seemed perplexed. The modest young gentleman blushed, and backed out of his own proposition, but an over- curious female relative detained him by the button of his coat, and he was com - polled, at the entreaties of the party, to give the answer, which was. " Because they are fond of the breast." Two middle-aged young ladie3 taintod, and thc coroner was sent for immediately to hold an inquest over the remains of thc young man, who was suddenly carried out. Sisterly Affection. At a 'protracted meeting" held whi lom, not a thousand miles from Ballston Spa, an ancient sister in tho church a rose and relieved herself as follows: " I sec young ladies here that seem to love cow-caws, furbelos, ribbons and la ces more than their Creator.
