One of these, Captain Fer guson, of Kentucky, became celebrated for his hardihood and success in the ter- . 1.1 i l: c T...T. 'P. flli:,, no e uuuuiig oi xuu.au,. , . o ,s incident will convey some idea ot ttie character of the man, and also of the war still waging in the New World, between civilization and barbarism. A small band of volunteers, among whom was Captain Ferguson, spent sev- ! oral days in exploring Texas, and had 1 wandered far into the interior without ' meeting a solitary Indian track. Tired of this pacific journey, they resolved to separate and seek adventures singly, be ; fore returning to the camp. Accordingly the lollowing morning Captain Ferguson, mounted on an excel n) i 1 1 ,1 i . T I flirt hi c? t ia i I'infnin norpoirnn r rnnn ot wilu Horses slowly advancing towarus him.

They soon gained the level ground, and tho dull sound of their hoofs striking the soil, became distinctly audible. The Capton looked, and saw clinging to the flanks of each, an Indian suspended hor izontally by an arm and a leg. This is a common stratagem among the Iudians, but, luckily for Ferguson, he was still at ' a considerable distance from these unpleasant-looking cavaliers. Perceiving, by the sudden rapidity of , his flight, that they were discoverd, the ' Indians climbed on their horses and pur sued our hero at full speed, shouting their terrible war cry. Looking back, Ferguson observed that bis pursuers spread themselves across the ..,.,,., a tpi Mi flirt i i 1 n n f ininnjiAn i-v t mi f pi ami;, tutu iuu uuuuni iiituiiiiuu ui wur ting off his retreat to the hills.
