Starred Rock—The Indian Legend.
A few weeks since wo visited "Starved
Rock," located about seven miles from Peru
near the foot of tho rapids of the Illinois
river. This rock may justly be regarded as
quite n natural curiosity, and is also deserv
ing of peculiar interest from the thrilling
incidents connected with it. Theso incidents
form an interesting episode in aboriginal
Starved Rock is composed of a large mass
of sandstone, rising from the water's edge
to a perpendicular hight of nearly two hun
dred feet. It is inaccessible from the point
fronting on one side. This npproach is
rugged and narrow and could be obstructed
with little labor.
The diameter of the surface of the rock is
probably one hundred feet. It is covered
with a soil scvetal feet in depth in many
places, and which has given growth to many
small trees and vines.
The tradition connected with the rock is
to the effect that about tho time of the death
of Pontine, the great chief, of a band of Illi
nois Indians were engaged in a deadly strife
with thc I'ottawattamies, who in a great
battle succeeded in routing them. The din
comfitted band, in their Sight, took refuge
upon this desolate rock, and soon made

They repulsed all the assaults made upon
them, and would have remained masters of
their rocky tower, but for the impoggibilitv
of obtaining water.
They had secured abundance of provis
ions, but their only resource for the former,
under the rock, cut tho ropes as they wero
let down, and thus deprived them of water
altogether. Time rolled on—the brave In
dians could goze for miles up and down the
silvery stream that threaded the plain and
its waves dashed upon the base of their im
pregnable fortifications, and it was impossi
ble for them to obtain a single drop to quench
their burning thirst. The result wits inevi

died, and the mighty rock became their tomb

stitution formed by the Lecompton Conven
tion, arguing that it perpetuates slavery in
Kansas, no matter whether the people ac
cepted or rejected the slavery clause.
Mr. Seward Bhould be glad to hear the
supporters of the President explain his po
sition, for it seemed to him the message wHs
very lame and impotent in its argument on
Kansas, and that something more would be
required to satisfy the people than is con
tained in the document itself. He trusted
that the debate on this point would not bu
delayed long, for before we wero uware of
it there might be civil war in Kansas. After
reviewing other parts of the message, he
said he hoped that it would be understood
that oil Utah affairs Congress was substan
tially unanimous that the world might be
assured that the Government of tho United
States would not suffer its fame to be tar
nished, its power insulted and the lives of
its citizens destroyed by an enemy, entrench
ed though it may be in the Rocky Mountains
and under the forms of the Constitution of
the United States.
Mr. Mason was free to declare that all in
formation for the last six months relative
to Kansas affairs, had come from question
able sources, if he understood the Presi
dent's position, and he thought he did, the
President's position was impregnable.
Mr. Trumbull denied that the Legislature
of Kansas had authority to imitate the Con
vention. It was, according to a speech once
i/ef »-ieu in tKe Senate by Mr. Buchanan
himself, an act of ti^-'jiation. Congress had
repeatedly refused authoriijt- to the people
of Kansas to form a State Conjoint .™.

the President had expresfwtl deep mortifica

When Mr. Douglas concluded, thero was
great applause in the galleries.
Mr. Higler replied to Mr. Douglas, saving
tho Convention was culled according to law,
and had been recognized by the president
and the Governor of the Territory. It was
their right to submit the Constitution to the
people or send it to Congress without sub-
keep them out of the Union simplv because
the whole Constitution had not teen sub

sistent with the doctrine of nonintervention.
There was nothing in the past history of the
country to justify such a course it would
be the duty of Congress to look at the ques
tion as it came before them, and do thc best
they could,looking nt the happiness of tbe en
