It boots not now to point out the precise spot- Sufficient for our purposes, to locate m me vicinity ot UayUga iiake. ' Strange as it may, and does appear, thev were in extricably lost, notwithstanding' that there were several expert woodmen in the party. For several days thev. wandered about in thiir endeavors, to. extrioate themselves, ea?n supceeding day only making the con fusioti .'in, their ; brains worse confounded. How.often do we find the coolest heads in moments ftf difficulty. Ipse ..their self-pos-session there re times when, by an over powering influence one cannot call. it rear, though gradually and unmistakeably it assumes, that type all , our, knowledge or pasi events, all our iorethought ot the future, is one dim, hazy blank,. which, by disease, assume a darker cast, unless a master-mind is. there, calmly and deliber ately to rend the evil asunder, to restore the fast fading, confidence, without, which all human'energy is nought. ' t'Xis passing strange how the mind of one roaq, in time ot darkness and dread, undismayed by , danger, and uninfluenced by imminent peril, can so animate the mass that they would face greater danger than that which totally: unmanned them scarce five: minutes : previously. . There was . a master with the party I commenced, to tell you. about, but the mind there was not; hence ;their total loss and consequent be wilderment.;,,., ., ..j,r,:j, ;, JVIany pf our readers may not have had the extreme felicity of losing themselves in the bush, and consequently cannot for a moment,' picturejo their minds the sen sations f likely to be experienced there; there' may be -many' again, who', without being absolutely lost, ' have fancied them selves so, the feeling being barely second to the reality.

Joyfully did they accept the Indian proffered hospi tality. The fish and Venison prepared with rude inartistic skill, never tasted more delicious - than . now. 7 All theilf , troubles vanished in a moment, and after satisfy ing the cravings of their inordinate appe ties, the head surveyor of the party, whom We will now introduce to our readers as a Mr. Shomberg. nowise extraordinary in his appearance, save a peculiar and at the same time disagreeable cast of counten ance which somehow conveyed to the be holder an impression that was unfavorable to the wearer; his character, however, be lied, his face; he was much esteemed and respected by all who knew hirn, question ed the Indians as to their present position, and where they ought to have been. Strange as it may appear, they were with in a few miles of where their labors wem to commence, and one and. all agreed that meir late loss was extraordinary, inas much as thev must have nassed over tlia very ground they had been in search of. , w line mey were tlms working up their reckoning and smokinrr their nines.

'' The party soon found the place arid finished their survey, and returned to their homes. ' Shomberg, in high spirits at his successful .exploit, bent his steps to New York, where he at that time resided with out a card or a thought of the poor being he had so Unscrupulously deprived of life. i Let us turn back for a moment to the scene of blood shed and murder-. As soon as the retreating footsteps of the intruder were no longer audible, the old OrOne. un able to walk, commenced to crawl towards the body of her fallen son. Slowly' and painfully did she drag her weary way. fear ful lest her long coming might prove fatal. Who. pan express the hope or fear that possessed that' poor, forlorn,' miserable cripple? No fear for herself, he? lonely and melancholy condition, for a moment entered her mind, her whole thoughts Were in the senseless and inanimate form that lay now but a little distance from her. 1 At . . . . ... ... I.. last sne reached the body, tears aside witn frantic energy the shirt; there, right over the heart, is a small hole from which the blood is scarcely welling out. j The vital spark, however, had long sincet fbsd; no mortal power ' can animate that senseless mass of clay.' 'Full well at a glance does the old squaw know this. , This is' not the first mortal wcund she has inspected. Louder and louder does she raise her voice, the cry of vengeance far superior to that of grief. But yet she is hopeless; none of her tribe' are near to respond to her cries or to perform the last sad rites to the victim. ' ' ' . .' ' ' Of this' she at last seems aware, and gradually her wail become more sorrow ful as nature is exhausted. She, however, still retains her post by the dead body, and all that eve and night does she watch over it, fasting alone. Sleep at last she does, despite her efforts to the contrary, gradu ally falling over the dead man; and in that situation she was discovered in the' after noon by a young hunter who chanced that way. lie soon sees the blood, and ap proaches, as he fancies, the dead bodies Judge . his surprise when he finds one warm- By dint of shaking he wakens the old woman,' and learns from her what lias occurred. Carefully does he; remove the .body into ..the nut, ana assisting the old squaw and supplying her with food, he hastens away trom the spot. The daylight was just breaking when the Indian again made his appearance, accompanied by'some eight others. ' Again the body was inspected, the old squaw was questioned, and the appearance of the murderer so impressed on their minds that one and all were satisfied they could re cognize him without trouble. His foot steps, however, were examined and noted. The Indian was consigned to his lowly bed, the old squaw removed, and to all appearances the affair was ended. Not so, however, was the case. . The Indian who first discovered the deed had silently followed the trail to where the sur vey had been made, and then to the near est settlement, where, in his. broken Eng lish, he managed to gain information that the head of the party had gone to New York, and that he had a rifle along with him purchased from . an Indian, and that his name was Shomberg. . With this infor mation, he rejoined his tribe. ' ' In less than a week after, various par ties of strange Indians were noticed in the streets of New York. Who they were, whence they came, or why, none could tell. Their faces were painted black all were fully armed, and might be seen day by day prowling, now in detached parties, how singly through every street. At length, Shomberg was seen, instantly recognized, and followed. His residence discovered, day by day and night by night a red skin might be seen either watching his residence, or dogging his steps. Twice did they attempt his life,, but were foiled each time. . Shomberg, however, jsaw enough to satisfy him that he was "doom ed." For several days he did not stir out; but still frpm his window he could al ways see an Indian somewhere. (' : His life grew burthensome. He resolv ed to leave the country; but instead of sailing trom New York, he was obliged to go to Montreal. Taking the precaution to find a party, bound tp the same place, he set sail for Lake Champlain, success fully avoiding the Jndians .as he thought. ! Such however, was riot the case. The foe were on his traok; their light canoes were in pursuit; but still he gained on them. But Indian instinct was not at fault; at Albany they heard of him, and where he had gone. :.t .-..-ir.' ,1 s, , " , Some days after he had been in ; Mon treal, he was" seated In the cabin of the vessel about to sail for England, wheq the captain told him soma Indians were inquir ing for him and wanted to- see him. - -v "Tell them,' for GodVsakej that I am not here," washis Teply, .and; from that moment he never left the cabins;." !;.( t ' The sails were loosened to the! wind, the vessels' is at last under way, the Indiana in pursuit. .1 Having passed the ship in the dark1, dowrtlir mighty St. 'Lawrence do they now - glide. 'certain-almost of their preyj for at Gashe, rliey heard i. sail a say they were to go ashore for some sparse On 'arriving there, Shomberg, having for several days lost sight of the Indians, considered himself safe, and went ashore to bid a last farewell. Scarcely had he been separated an instant from the crew, when1 he was thrown down, gagged and bodnd his captors the accursed Indians. In 'an Instant he was- dragged into the bush, a hole bored through his tongde, and into it a deer skin thong was inserted, and in this horrible state was he led, day by day, (most carefully fed by the Indians,) for some weeks, until at last, judge his horror and surprise, to discover the spot where he murdered his unoffending host. Here he was doomed to perish, after un dergoing every refinement of torture an Indian full well understands. His nails were pulled 'out one by one, a burning brand applied to stay the bleeding; his flesh pierced with hot sticks and arrows; every one being careful not to inflict a deadly wound. Bound to a tree, did he thus suffer for three days. On the fourth, a small fire was placed all around him, sufficient to burn, but not to kill. He was gradually cooking upwards,' for on the fifth day he was still alive, but insensible. When the spirit parted from the flesh we cannot say, but the body was not con sumed until the seventh day." This is a true story of a white man's gratitude and the Indian's justice; and however revolting to our feelings such a death, under the most excruciating tor tures may be, we are very much of opin ion that were Indians to be the execution ers for murder, murders would not be. THE IMAGE OF GOD IN NATURE. That every Divine work has respect to Infinity and to Eternity, is evident from many things which exist both in heaven and in the world; in neither of them is there ever given, any one thing exactly similar to, or the same as, any other; no two faces are either alike or identical, nor will be to eternity. In like manner the disposition of one is never altogether that of another; wherefore there are as many faces and as many dispositions, as there are men and angels; there never exists in in any one man (in whom yet there are innumerable parts which constitute his dis position) any one thing quite alike to, or identical with, any one thing in another man: hence it is that every one leads . a life distinct from the life of another. , The same order exists in the whole and in ev ery part of nature.. ...... . ' What sublime subjects for meditation are the, works of nature. .The towering mountains, rearing their crested peaks in lofty majesty towards the clouds; the voide of God speaking through the thunder storm, and breathing musio in the oceam hurricane; the gorgeous sunlight, falling in quivering beams through realms of space, clothing the earth with a garb ol gold;' and even the flitting rays of the pale I'aoed moon, mantling the brow of nature with its soft silvery light, command our highest admiration, and most profound reverence for the mighty Being whose in exhaustible wisdom in the formation of matter proves Him worthy of the regard ol men and angels. ' : COL. ETHAN ALLEN. This brave and somewhat eccentric of ficer of . the American Revolution, was born in Roxbury, Ct., in 1739. He early emigrated to Vermont. On receiving the news of the battle of Lexington, he en listed all , his energies on the side of his country. His first exploit was the capture of Ticonderoga, May 10th, 1775. , The expediUon against this post was exceed ingly bold in its design and successful in its execution. At the head of only eighty- three men he entered the fort at night, took the sentry prisoner, and with a drawn sword, made his way to the commanding officer; and demanded the surrender of the fort..' - ; ,-. . . ,! "By what authority do you demand it?" exclaimed Captain De La Place, starting from his slumbers, i . r ! t "In the name of the Great Jthovah and the Continental Congress,", thundered Allen. .' ,- . !.- . . ... This was too high authority to be resist ed, and the fort was instantly surrendered with all its munitions of war. Col. Allen was taken prisoner in an ex pedition against the Canadians, while at tempting to capture Montreal, in connec tion with Col. Brown. ; lie was loaded with chains and sent to England, where he was imprisoned a short time, and at length taken back to. his oountry and ex changed for Col Campbell, a British offi cer, who had been taken prisoner by the Americans. , He died at Colchester, Vt., Feb. 12, 1789. , , . (! - An inoident is related of Ethan Allen, that is said to have occurred whilo he was on his passage to England. While close lv confined to his room, he discovered one day that a small pin or wire which fast ened one bolt of his band-cuff was bro ken.) Extricating the pieces with his teeth, he was enabled so to loosen the bolt that it also was soon withdrawn, and one hand was set at liberty. ; He then proceeded to release the.. . other, and . was successful. This having been accomplished, he was not long in. liberating his feet.. ...Fearing, however, lest the captain should discover his situation, ..and contract, his "arena of freedom,' ha -carefully replaced the bolts and pins before the arrival of bis keeper. In a short time it became a fine recrea tion for the Colonel to take off and put on his chains at plaure. ' ;,J ' J One day, the Captain wishing to afford some merriment to the crew, commanded Allen to be brought upon deck. Hoping to frighten him, the Captain said: . There is a probability that the ship will founder if so, what will become of us, especially' you, Mr. Allen,' a rebel against the Kiiig?" ' - ' ? v ' Why," said Allen, "that would De very much like our dinner hour." "flow sol" said the Captain. now re flectinL' that Allen was only allowed , to come on deck while he . himself went down in his cabin to dine. ."Well, you see," answered Allen, "I would be on. my-way up just as, you would be going below." .' ' ' The Captain was not at all pleased with this reply, and he commenced a regular tirade ot abuse against me amencau peo ple. "In a short time' said the Captain, .. ... .1 . I . .1. L - al. ... "an tne reoeis win ue in - iuo ouic snu tion as vourself." '' '-;. :; i ;, This was too much for . Allen, and he determined to apply his newly, acquired dexterity in unloosing his fetters to some purpose. - Quickly raining his hands to his mouth, he apparently snapped asunder the pins and bolts with his teetti, and hurl ihg his fetters and handcuffs overboard, he seized the astonished Captain by the collar, and threw him headlong upon the deok; then turning to the affrighted crew, he exclaimed in. a voice of thunder: "If I am insulted again during the voyage, I'll sink the ship and swim ashore. This ex ploit so terrified tho Captain and crew that Allen was allowed to do pretty much as he pleased the remainder of the pas sage. --:.'' r A SERENADE IN NORTH CAROLINA. Not a thousand years ago, and not a thousand miles from here, (Windsor, N. Carolina.) lived a young lady, the daugh ter of very plain country folks,, who had just returned from - a distant boarding school,' having finished her education Her residence was on the western bank ot a "little river" in this country The period of wtuoh 1 write was September. IMween the family mansion and the water's edge, was a five acre potato patch.: . The roots were cultivated in hills, and the vines were luxuriant. . ' ' : n jr : : On the opposite side of the river quite a number of young gentlemen livedo who were noted lor gallantry.- 1 heir devotion to the sex had induced them to unite their accomplishment, in the forming of a seren ading band, 1 he return ot the young lady referred to, afforded them an oppor tunity of doing the genteel. They ac cordingly met on a clear moonlight night, and each furnished witli ' his musical in strument, betook themselves to their boat to give a musical treat to the "fair re turned." With muffled oars they noiselessly crossed the river and gained the beach. With stealthy tread they approached the house at the hour of midnight, and ranging themselves in line, at a signal from their leader, violin, flute, clarionet and trom bone, in one mighty blast, to the tune of "Old Dan Tucker," broke the stillness of the night and the "old folks' slumber." The mother screamed from affright, and called to the daughter for an explanation of the unusual noise, She was informed in reply that it was a "serenade." Mis taking the reply, she flew to the old man. who a little deaf, was sitting bewildered at the (to him) confused sounds. The wife's report, 'they are cannona- ding us!" satisfied him. Ho flew to the gun rack, and taking down "old blue trig ger," hurried down stairs and aroused the house. Meanwhile the' young lady stood at her window with the curtain half drawn, drinking in the melody as it wafted up. 1 he boys, innocent as Sir Isaac s dog Diamond of the mischief they had made, were laying themselves out upon the last variation, when, at twenty feet distance, the old man shoved around the corner his pld musket, and drew trigger. She did not shoot, but the fire rolled bright as falling meteors. A stampede of elec tric suddenness took place the, "leader" of the band leading in a bee-line for the boat, followed in commendable nearness by his company.. They hurried in the start, but the repeated efforts of theod man to get his "piece off," increased their efforts at speed, and a call by him for a "chunk of fire" to touch the priming, told still more., They forgot the potato vines, and such a scene of confusion was never witnessed... Headlong they fell, and at each . fall, the sound or broken . fiddle strings, or battered drums, foretold the death of that band. Helter skelter, roll ing, crawling and (tumbling along, they gained the water's edge and their boat; and such pulling, men-of-war's men might have learned something from them then. ; The , vines so impeded the old man's progress, that he did not reach the bank with his ."chunk" till the "cannonaders" were out of gunshot, and he returned well satisfied that Ins timely appearance and courageous manner had achieved the sal vation of him and his. ; .ln the melee the old lady flew ".for shelter and safety," and could not be found , that night ; Next morning she was discovered under the wheat barn, and . after many assurances that, the cannonaders were routed, was prevailed upon, to come forth.
