SIX DOLLARS A YEAR
Ail INDIAN TRADITION.
Ta? ?tory of the Dela?;* on this Con?
? The following rather siigulnr tradition which
edita among the Papago Indians respecting
Montezuma, their founder, and thc deluge, has,
we believe, never yet appeared in print; at least
not In its present shape. It was related by
Captain Con Ouan, au aged and intelligent
member of tho tribe, and was taken down
from his lips by an interpreter for Judge Henry
T. Backus, of Arizona Territory. Judge Backus
has visited many of the places mentioned in
th? legend, and has been an eye-witness of
th? quadrennial feast still celebrated at thc
cave, tie represents the Papagoesas being
nominally Catholics, yet clinging to their na?
tional traditions with great tenacity, and cher?
ishing the memory of Montezuma with even
? mor*? than saintly veneration,
The trad';loa of the deluge Is Interesting in
Its relation to th" origin of the Indians of the
country, and especially of the ancient tribes
who lived in the twilight of civilization, until
the Spanish Christians annihilated them. Did
then bring tbis tradition with them from the
Asiatic continent ? Or. did they come in con?
tact with the people of the old world, antece?
dent to any historical evidence of that -tact,
from whom they derived this tradition ?
-'These are inquiries naturally suggested by
the following narrative. Montezuma, it will
be understood, is not the monarch of that
name whom Cortes dethroned. It is the gen?
eric term of their rulers, like Pharaoh, Cesar,
Before the flood men lived to a great age, so
that they lost their teeth and crept about Uko
children. After a time they would get new
teeth, and walk uptight again like men in the
prime of life. Then it was that the Great
Spirit created the mountains and peopled the
earth on all sides. Then, too, animals talked
like men, and were the first to tell of the ap?
proaching flood. About this time appeared
Montezuma, who collected a large quantity of j
gum from a plant called chuchi, and with this
gum, which. ls said to be insoluble In water,
and with other materials, he built a large ves?
sel, in which ne took refuge, closing and seal?
ing the door behind him. In like manner a
cayote or prairie dog crept Into a large cane
stalk and closed the ends against the water.
The flood came up to the highest mountains,
and reached even the birds, which cried like
men with fright. When the waters came down,
Montezuma and the cayote landed at Cerro
Prletta, which mountain some believe to be
According to another tradition they landed
In the centre ot the earth, and, having come
out of their vessels. Montezuma noticed the
trail of a beetle, which he followed until he
found the beetle last in the mud. Ho then
turned back, and meeting the cayote, they em?
braced each other In grief.' Montezuma sent
the cayote southward to find the sea, which it
soon found and returned, wheo lt was sent on
the same errand to the northward, but re?
turned unsuccessful. They then lay down to
sleep, when Montezuma dreamed that he
should form men and women ont of clay,
whlea be accordingly did, making two for each
cation. Meanwhile the cayote sat behind him
also making men, but the latter were ill-form?
ed, so that Montezuma ordered them to be re?
moved. His own people multiplied rapidly,
and built a largo city on the north, bank of a
river, supposed to be at tho mouth of Salt
River, In Arizona, where the remains of large
ditches are still visible.
Montezuma next travelled southward, fol?
lowed by large numbers of people. In accord- j
anee with a dream, he thrust a rod into the
earth, and water flowed thence, which ls the
origin of the springs at Santa Rosa and else?
where. After a time the Great Spirit appear?
ed to Montezuma as an old man, and asked to
baptize the people, that they might live be?
yond the sky after death, but 3Iontozuma be?
came angry and killed the Great Spirit. Then
the latter arose from the dead by night and
repeated the request, when Montezuma grew
angry again, declared that he would take
his people to Heaven by a tower, and killed
the Great Spirit a second time, leaving him
on the ground, where he was dragged about
as a plaything for four years. He then re-1
turned to Heaven, removing the sun further |
?rom the earth as he ascended.
After a long Interval he descended again
with the same request as before. At this time
Montezuma was living at the Caso Blanco, or
white house, close to trie Pim o villages on tho
Gila Biver. The Inside of this house was over?
laid with pure gold. A third time he slew the t
Great Spirit, but the latter now becoming an
Ery, threw a louse Into Spain, which led to an
tvaalon by the Spaniards. Twice did Monte?
zuma meet and repel the invaders, but before
' the third engagement the golden ring flew
from tho finger of hu- daughter to the finger of I
the Spanish commander, t<nd the silver ring of
the latter flew to the Anger of the former.
Thus did she become-leagued with the enemy,
and when they were out of provisions she
prevailed upon her people to throw them to?
mata* Instead of arrows, and thus they were
lsd at Montezuma's expense. After many
severe conflicts the Spaniards were victorious,
when the traitorous princess demanded the
hand of the commander in marriage. He
agreed to this on condition that an eagle
which hs set free should alight on a prickly
pear tree. - The eagle did so, and the comman?
der started to celebrate the marriage at the
pear tree, being followed by a large train ot
Papagoes; but, under the pretext of getting
violins, powder, ?c., he travelled on and on
until the Indians all deserted him.
Henceforth, as the story goes. Montezuma
made no Improvements, and his people were j
scattered over the country. He afterward de?
posited the archives of the Papago and Plmo
nations in a cave near Santa Rosa, and order?
ed that they celebrate a least there every
fourth year, which custom is still observed.
The nation gradually diminished, und Monte?
zuma wandered about until the Indians have
lost all traces of him.
[From the Saturday Review.]
lt If curious to reflect how much an author
may do to corrupt the heart or the head, and
how he may nevertheless, so long as he does !
not sin in one point, escape all ceisure. If |
he can only keep bis book free from what ls
called Immorality-that ls to say, if he can
either Ignore one side of human conduct al- ?
together, or else only touch upon lt In tho
recognized conventional manner-he may
?ve his readers tho falsest notions of human
e, be may pervert their taste, he ma*y ren?
der them as weak as sentimentality alono
can render them, he may lead them to relish
nothing that Is not seasoned with the most
outrageous incidents and coincidences, and
he pay still remain an author whose works
would be placed by any mother in the hands
of any daughter. It is strange how blind the
respectable world usually is to all literary
faults save one. So long as a book is not
licentious, lt is held that lt cannot be a bad
book. We are inclined to question, however,
whether that which corrupts the intellect does
not do as much harm as that which corrupts
the so-called morality. The tendency ot a
rat deal of the literature of the present day
|0 give people a thoroughly ialse Idea of |
life. Our novels, with their "sickly senlmen-1
tality, their morbid self-aualvsis, their hateful
sensationalism, help to train *up a set of young
meu and young women quite unfit for the
humdrum duties and pleasures which must
constitute the greater part of each one's Ufe.
It ls not merely the rank and file of our novel?
ists who ofleud. Their tendency is now, as lt
always has been, merely to exaggerate tho
errors of their chiefs. There is not oue of our
leading novelists who has not much to answer
for, and we hardly know on whom we should
lay most blame. Mr. Dickens, perhaps, ranks
ss the chief offender, for he it is who hus work?
ed sentuueatality to such an extent as would
have raised, if that were possible, a blush
even on Sterne's brow. When the author of |
the Sentimental Journey was going to play his
tricks on his reader's eyes, at all events he
chose as his subject a jackass, and a dead one
too. If death is to Oe tricked out so as to
work upon our emotions-if lt is to be con?
stantly drawing upon our tears, we must con?
fess that for our part we feel less after-shame
Itt the ' tear we dropped over the defunct
donkey than at those we have shed in
turn* over Mr. Dicken?' long line of dying
hayes. At all events, the Rev. Mr. Sterne
orirv killed his donkey once; while Mr.
Dickens will never once for ali kill o?r |
Ms faverit? eharaeter-his half-Idiot er his
sickly ehild-and so get done with him. We
confess that, whenever we have begun
one of Mr. Dickens* novels, we have not
telt qidte easy in our minds till we have
been able to discover which character lt is
that has been brought Into this wond solely
with the view of bein}: speedily ushered out of
lt. His children, from little Dombey down?
ward, might fairly rise up against him with
the old reproachful question of the tombstone
"What was I begun for
To be so soon done for?"
To Mr. Dickens the whole modern sentimen?
tal school must certainly look up as its head.
He has been the source of a great deal of most
tearful writing; might we suggest, if he stands
in need of a motto, that Hine Ufa lachrymal
would be most appropriate ? Mr. Thackeray
himself ls not free from the same charge. -He
saw how easy the tear trick was to perform, and
what applause greeted his great rival each time
he r peated lt; unhappily he could not keep
from trying it also. At Imitation, of course,
Mr Thackeray was perfect, and we must allow
that Colonel Newcomc's death quite equals, li
lr does not actually surpass. Mr. Dickens'
most lachrymose efforts. Ii Charles II. had
live i now-a-days, he would scarcely have
thought lt needful to apologize for being a
most unconscionable time dying. The fashion
bas changed, apparently, since his time, and
few can now get their dying done under half
a dozen pages or so. We altogether protest
against these death-bed scenes; we have had
enough of them, and more than enough.
Henceforth, if a mau has to die, let him, like
a wounded wild animal, creep off to some
hiding-place where he may pass out of the
world with dignity and alone. We have, un?
happily, every year to read and to criticise a
great many novels. We give fair notice that
wo will not tolerate any more death-bod
scenes, and more last dying speeches. Even
our very executions are BOW private. Now
that Jack Ketch does his business with
dignity, lt is not too much to expect
that our novelists should show some
little respect both for themselves and their
readers. We hold that this overstrained senti?
mentality, sa far from widening and strength?
ening a man's sympathies with his felkjw-crea
tures, really narrows and weakens them. Th.i
reader is so flattered by the tear he drops ove;
tho Imaginary sorrow of some hero or heroine
that he cannot but congratulate himself on the
possession of a tender heart. His conscience
remains satisfied with the sympathy he has felt
for sufferings which have had no real exist?
ence, and his charity has been sufficiently ex?
ercised In tiie aid he longed to bestow on those
who by no possibility could have been tho re?
