There were some ten or eleven men in the com i pany. Six of them were in the field near he river mowing, when a party of IeIVds tuddeoly appeared, and shot and scalped them all in a few moments. The others were at the cabin which ptood near where the public road now passes ; Win ters was preparing dinner, when the sharp reports of the rides, and the exultant yells ol the savages were heard. Bein satisfied that their comrades were killed, they im mediately lied, and secreted themselves in the woods till night. The Indians not suspecting that any others were near, pass i ed on. In the night. Winters and his men i ventured forth, and went to the meadow, I where they collected the bodies of the mur dered men in a pile, aud instead of burying I them, covered them carefully with a large quantity of freshly mown hay. Then pro ceeding as quickly as possible to the river, they raised their canoes that had beeu sunk to couceal them, and sorrowfully commenc ed their return. . The foil iwing spring he returned with a j body of armed men, and strange to relate, j found the bodies of the six men undis'.urb- edTust as as he had placed them, and in a j remarkably good state of preservation. j Very little, if any, change having taken piece. J Their bodies were taken, and carefully ! buried ill what is now the Lvcomin.prave- yard. .Probably they were the first interr- j ed there. An Indian war had uow commenced, and was raging aloug the valley. All im provements were at an eud, and most of the settlers' houses burned, whilst the ter ritied inhabitunt8 were fleeing from the country. In May, the sixth iind seventh classes of ColoutJ Long's battalion were ordered to be embodied by Colonel Hunter, and scout aloug the fiontier, until the sixth and seventh classes of Colonel Murray's and II-)slerinau"8 battalions should arrive at Great Island to cover the frontier there. Colonel Hunter writes to Mr. Wharton, President of the Council, under date of May lilh, 1778, as fellows concerninz v-ox- ... 'lhese last classes would have marched before this time only for want of Provi sions, as for meat there is very little to be J had in this County, and that very dear ; Bacon sells ut 4 s.

I have ordered some People that lives uigh the Great Island to pre serve si ad and Barrel them for the use of the Militia that will he stationed there this summer. "Col.

We are scarco of Guns, not more thau one half of the Militia is provi ded with Anus, and a number of them Wry Ordinary ; Our Powder is exceeding Bad, and not lit for rides in any shape. And as for Flints we can get none to bny ; all this I think proper to acquaint the council with, &c." On the ltith of May near the mouth of Bald Eagle Creek, three men were at work j putting in a small field of corn, were nt j lacked by a party of Indians, killed ami l.....l.u,l Tiv.. .1.. f.

On the 2Utl. ot tho fume month, two men aud seven women and children, were takeu from one house, near Lycoming Creek. They were all carried awav as pri- i i soners. About tlve same time three families, con sisting of sixteen in number, were killed and carried away from Loyal Sock. A party that went up from Wallis only found ! two dead bodies, from which they suppos ed the remainder were takeu prisoners. Their houses were all reduced to ashes.

About this time, Andrew Armstrong, ! who settled at the "big sprit)'' below where Liuilon now stands, was visited "by a party of Indians. They came very sud denly. On the alarm btinij given, Mrs. Armstrong who was oictciite, slipped un der the bed. The Indians entered the house, and seizing Armstrong, his little sou, and a womau named Naucy 1 Sunday, made preparations to carry them away. Armstrong told his wife to lay still, which she died, aud escaped. They were in a great hurry, on account of a small body ol men being stationed a short distance below and did not take time to lire the building. They turned up the creek with their pti soucrs. Mrs. Armstrong crawled from her hiding place, and looking out of the window beheld her husband and liLllc son disappear in the forest with them. Years rolled away, and no tidings were had from Audrew Armstrong. , No doubt they had cruelly murdered him. The little son was also given up for for lost, and the mother had ceased to mourn, and became resigned to her hard lot. Many years after peace had been re- stored, and the settlers had returned to their homes, an aged Indian, with a young man by his side, bearing unmistakable signs of having white blood iu his veins, knocked at the cottage door of the widow Armstrong, one pleasant autumn after noon. He alleged that this was her son that bad. been carried off years ago, when a mere child. But he was grown to man hood, and partook so much of the charac ter and disposition of an Indian, that she could not recognize him as her long lost son. The scenes ol that sorrowful day were brought fresh to her mind, and her heart yearned f ir the little flaxen haired boy. Could this noble youth, of athletic form, and piercing eye, be he ? Could he be so changed'. Thus she reasoned. She could not feel positive that he was her son neither was she certain that he was not. If she was to own him, and he was not hers, she could extend to him the affections of a mother ; and it she turned him away and he was her son, oh ! what remorse of con science would she feel. A terrible confict was going on in her mind. She never could bring herself, however, to believe that he was in reality her Joy. DoubU still remained in her mind. He remained about the settlement for some time, but had all the manners and habits of an In dian, and never seemed to readily embrace the usages of civilized life. He finally left the neighborhood, on finding that she would not recognize him as her son, re turned to his tawny comrades of the for-1 est. He never came asrain. It was evident that white blood coursed in his veins, but he was in every respect au Indian. Many of the old settlers be lieved that he was, iu reality, the lost boy. About this time, in the Same year, four men, named Robert Fleming, Robert Don aldson, James McMichael, and John Hamilton, started from Fort Antes, to go to Horn's Fort, in a canoe. Nothing oc curred till they come opposite the mouth of Pine Creek, when they were suddenly fired upou by a party of Indians, who lay concealed in a sink hole on the south side of the river, and all were killed but Hamilton. He immediately sprang out of the canoe into the water, and keeping it between him and the Indians, by holding on with one hand, managed with the other to work his way across the river. Several shots were fired at him without effect. He managed to dodge his head behind the ca noe. As soon as he reached the shore, he sprang out aud ran through the "barrens," till be came opposite to Fort Antes.-where he cried tor assistance, aud was speedily brought over. Nearly all the clothing was stripped from his bodv iu his rapid flight through the bushes. The same day that this melancholly af fair took place, a party of men were dri ving some cattle down from above the Great Islaud. Crossing the plains near where Liberty now stands, they were fired upon by a parly of Indians. The whites immediately returned the fire, when an Indian was observed to fall, and was car ried off. A man named Samuel Fleming, was shot through the shoulder. The In dians fled very precipitately, and abandon ed a large amount of plunder, principally consisting of blankets, which fell into the hands of the whites. Andrew Fleming settled on Pine Creek, in the vicinity of where Martin McKin ney's house now stands. On Christmas iwn i 1 - T - served to his wife, that he would go and kill a deer. He started np the ravine, and had not been gone long, before the report of a gun was heard. The day wore away and he did not return. His wife became alarmed at his protracted absence, aud feared that evil might have befallen him. Proceeding up the ravine to look for him, she suddenly perceived three savages skul king in the bushes, and her worst suspi cions were at ouce aroused. Returning hastily, she gave the alarm, and a number of neighbors collected, and proceeded to search for her husband. They had gone but a short distance, when they came to his dead body. Three balls had passed through him, one having entered his eye. The scalp was removed. It was supposed that the guns had been fired simulta neously, making but one report. About the commencement of the Revo lution, the father of Robert Covenhaven immigrated from New Jersey, and settled on Loyal Sock Creek. He had three sons, named respectively, James, Thomas aud Robert. The latter became distin guished as a guide, a spy, and Indian kill er ; and wa in several battles of the Revo lution. Shortly after coming to this Val ley, the old man lost all his effects by a sud den freshet in the cteek. Late in the year 1777, Robert returned to the West Branch from the Contenental army, his term of enhstmeut having ex pired. His extensive knowledge of the country, the character, habits, and dispo- t sition of the Indian., acquired whilst serv ing with the surveying parlies, was of great service, and he was disposed to make good use of it for the benefit of the settle ment. An old man named Whycholl, who ap pears to have been au uucle to the Coven havens, also settled about Loyal Sock. Ho was a tanner by trade, and soon erect ed a tannery, and commenced making leather for the settlement. One day, in the summer of 1S78, the Covenhaven boys were mowing in a meadow, and the ; old man Whvehofl. was at work iu his tannery A dog suddenly commenced barking, aud exhibited great symptoms of! alarm ; he would run towards the woods, i snuff the air. and return. The boys were I satisfied that Indians were lurking near. They took their rities and warned the old man to leave ; this hu at first refused to do, alleging that there was co danger. They finally iuduccd him to go with them; they bad not proceoded far, till one of them hissed the dog, whsrn he bounded into the bushes, and au got Indian by the leg, where he was lying concealed. He rose immediately, and shot the faithful animal. The whites, who were iu all, six in number, immediately jumped to trees the Indians did the same, and the firing commenced. Whychoff, who was very much humpbacked, got behind a tree that was too small to hide all his person. Fortunately for him, another small tree stood between him and the Indians, and as they tired at him, their bullets struck this tree, and made the bark fly around Robert Covenhaven who was near. He yelled at the old man to stand up straight, or he would be hit. As he was loading his rifle, his ramrod was shot io two, but luckily he had a wiper, with which he rammed down the bullet. Just at this moment, he observed an Indian stealthily creeping round to get a fair shat at old Whychoff; watching him closely, till he attempted to crawl over a log, he fired, and shot him through the-body. He sprang into the air, gave a tremendous ye'L, and fell. His comrades rushed up and bore him off when the whites made away as fast as possible. He appeared to be the chief, or commander of the .party, aud no doubt it wa lucky for the whites that he was shot. The danger became so great, and such a panic seized the inhabitants, that nearly all of them about Mnncy fled to Brady's Fort. Thosii above that up to Lycoming ann Pine creeks, were at Antes'aud Horn's Forts. The inhabitants of Penns Valley gathered to Potter's Fort. .These below the Muncy Hills, to Chillisquaque, were assembled at Freeland'4 and Boou'a Forts, and Sunbury. Those in While Deer, and Buffalo Valleys, fled to the river, aud fort ed themselved at various points. This took place iu the summer of 177S. Colo nel Hunter in a letter to John Hambright says, that it was very distressing to see the poor settlers flying aud leaving their homes. The immigrants from New Jersey, who had come np that spring and winter, set off again as rapidly as they could travel to their old houses. Colonel Hepburn, afterwards Judge Hep- i burn, was stationed for a while at Muncy For.', and commanded it. Colonel Hos termau, Captain Renolds, Captain Berrv. and others, were sent np soon alter, to assist in protecting the frontier. A number of horses had strayed away, and were supposed to have gone to Loyal Sock. Captain Berry was ordered to take a company of twelvs men, and look after them. Robert Covenhaven, his two brothers, James and Thomas, and bia un cle, William WhychoiT, were in the expe dition. They proceeded to Loyal Sock, where, it appears, they separated. Peter Shoefelt, William Whychoff, and a man named Thompson went above the creek, to wards Williamsport, to Thompson's house foe the purpose of saving some of his pro perty. The remainder of the party continued up the creek. They proceeded cautious-!y through the narrows, but saw no sigus of Indians. Not finding the horse it was concluded to return. Covenhaven was suspicious that Indians were about, and advised Captain Berry not to return by the path they had come, as he feared an am buscade. Berry thought there was no dan ger, and paid but little attention to him. who still insisted on taking another route over the mountain. Berry at length ac cused him of cowardice, and being need lessly alarmed. This irritated him very much but he insisted no more,and going to his brothers, communicated to them his fears that they would be attacked by the enemy and probably all killed. He re quested them to keep a shatp lookout, and if the flash of a gun was seen, to jump to trees immeniately. They traveled ou without any molesta tion, till they came to the narrows, and true to Covenhaven expectation, were suddenly fired upon by a party of savages in ambush. Most of the party, including the reckless Captain Berry, were shot down. James was shot through the shoulder, and disabled. He cried to Robert that he was wounded, and could do uothing, who told try and cover htsVeireilT"4 would getting to the opposite side, when a rS?. struck him ou the back part of the head, aud he fell back on the edge of the creek dead. Robert ran for life, and jumped iuto an old tree top, where he loaded his rifle. He had not been there many minutes, till a big savage came and stood on a log with in a few feet of where he lay, lookiug all around aud up the hill. Ho watched his eye, and was prepared lo shot the moment he was discovered, and then run for his life Had the Indian but cast his eye down at his feet, he would have beheld Coven haveu. He soon ran back over the creek, where tbey were scalping tho killed. The shrieks of the wounded, and the yells of the savages, were terrible. Covenhaven soon crawled out of the tree top.and work ed his way carefully up the mountain. An open spot of ground was before him, which he dare uot cross, for fear of being seen and pursued. Coming to where an old tree bad blown out of root, he Lay down in the hole and remained there till dark, when he started across the hills and reach Willis' Fort in safety, and reported to the garrison the melancholy fate of the expe dition. His brother Thomas, with several others was taken prisoner and carried into cap tivity. He returned after the war. Continued. iriiscclhiitous. HEISGOI.VUTO UE.NIGX. In Forsyth, one day last week, a gentle man standing in the street noticed a two mule wagon drive up to oue of the stores. There was nothing peculiar in this, but what particularly struck his at tention was the fact that the driver a col ored man hail an exceedingly lengthy pair of reins, aud was seated in the hind most part of the wagon. When the team stopped the negro cautiously fastened the lines to a standard, got out over the hind wheel, and made a circle of forty or fifty ; feet to get to the head of the mules. This so excited the gentleman's curiosity that he walked up and asked : 'Look here, uncle, yon are not crazy. are you ?' 'Does I look like a crazy nigge Mars I I Tom ' 'Well, what in the name of common sense are you cutting up these antics for wa king almost twice around the wagon to .

Savannah Xevs. j . Couldn't Spare Illtn. My friend. Col. Richard Wintersmitb, was walking np the avsnue, one day, ac companied by Mrs. W. and another ladY The sidewalk wa icy. Just ia front of them perambnlated a perfumed attache of French Legation. Suddenly the high dip lomatic boot heels struck upon a particu larly sraoothe spot of ice ; there was a flash of feet in the air, aud a wackof a head with his hair parted in the middle upon the cold and unfeeling bricks ; then a frantic getting np and a hasty glance around to see who was laughing. It happened thai the risibilities of the ladies who accompanied Col. Rich ard Wintersmitb were excited. The furious Frenchman produced a deli cate piece of pasteboard from the pocket of his silk rest, and proffered the same to the martial Kentuckian. 'Sare, ze ladies you have zt honare to protect have offer me 1c gross ensult, I sail look to yon for the ze satisfacshong.' The Colonel bowed with that peculiar grace and ernfirffsment which would drivo the late Earl of Chesterfield mad with envy a hundred times a day were he alive witness them, and responded : ' My dear sir, I am very sorry that you take that view of it, but, if you insist on satisfaction, permit me to make a sugges tion which I have nojloubt wilt commend itself to your judgment. My wife has two brothers, cither of whom she could spare more conveniently than she could me, for I am the only hnsband she has, and she never could get another like mo if I should be slain. If it is all the same to you, please hold one of Mrs. W.'s brother re sponsible in this matter !' And the Colonel bowed auother of bis overwhelming bows, and passed on, leav ing the astouished little Frenchmen ab sorbed in a blank stare at the nearest lamp post.

How to Treat Unexpected GcesTh When one of 'fafjier's' business friends drives into the yard about half-pas eleven the good wife knows that he- will surely stay to dinner. Father is a f,reat story teller, and he like to get hold of a new auditor. How aptly comes a frown of dis may and displeasures on the smoothe, fair face of his help-meet. Whotfcan be done ? Work it going ou according to the day's plan in the kitchen ; the dinner was ar ranged for none but the family ; the chil dren are coming home from the school and making a clatter ; all is bustle and confusion- She feels that the best dishes must be used, and something extra, cooked for the inopportune guest.

A sensible person knows that farm ers do uot have six courses upon their ta- i ble daily, and the wholesome, hearty-fare, with good nature and hospitable cordiality, will be tinctured with a sweet domestic sense thai is inevitably lost in a grand dinner.

Responsibility for Raised Checks. A decision of wide interest regarding the responsibility of makers of checks that are raised, or notes that are altered, has just been rendered by Judge Sharswood, of tho Supreme Court. He holds that a maker who makes a note or check in such a way as to make alteration easy, or invite it, is liable to a bona-fide holder who takes it before maturity for value. - But if the maker bad used the ordinary precautions he wauld not be so liable, any mora than for downright forgery. Omitting the 'scroll' the blank spaces after the words and fig ures of the instruments, and signing con tracts or other documents in such a way that they could be severed, and a perfect negotiable note obtained, would be instan ces of negligence that would ' render the maker liable.
