A qu adrnigu lar wall of enormous pine loge, aud pro. teted at~ the four corners by four strong block houses, it might have been deemed secure against any force desti tute of artillery. It was impregnable to other arms, if properly guarded. Its garrison numbered two hundred and seventy-five, of whom nearly one half consisted of women and children, having left their own homes for this unI fortunate asylum. It was bright noon dlay, the 3rd of August, 1813, and fort Mimma had not yet experienced an alarm, though it had now been man.: ned for two long months. The scouts . had reported no signs of Indians for - several weeks past, and hence a fatal feeling of security had possessed almost every one. There was one heart with in, however, throbbing with fearful fore bodings. Seated on a wooden stool, in the company of some dozen others of both sexes, a beautiful young girl was seen, whose pale and troubled features attest ed the keen anxiety of her soul. 'What ails my fair flower, Lucy Deata, to-day ? Has she seen a ghost, or been dreaming about Indians?' asked a fine looking young officer, who had just entered. 'Oh! site thinks that we will all be t scalped before night, because the hand some. Maj. Montgomery left its this I morning,' cried on.- of the maidens, lau ghing. Lucy's own face colored - with sweeter crimson than ever blushed r Dn the check of an evening cloud. t -No, that is not it, said a merry, mad- I romp, arching a pair of pretty black < eye-brows into a comical expression.- f She is afraid her old beau, Sultan I WVeatherford, will pay her another vis t, and she objects to being made 'the ight of the harem.' a Lucy turned deadly pale at this ral y of wit; but she darkened the smile i Ilaying around the circle, by suddenly t iddressing the officer, in tones so sol- s mnn that they seemed like an unearth- a y warning-'What said Gent. Clai ,orne, when he parted with Major Beasley?' 'To repect an enemy, and prepare to a =ueet him, is the only nietliod to ensure t success,' answered the officer. 'Then look at yonder open gate, and those children running outside of the I Fort,'exclaimed the young girl. -.with a slight shudder. 'Is that preparation I to meet an enemy?' 'My spies came in not an hour ago, and assited me that there are no Creeks within fifty miles,' replied the conman- 1 der, confidently. 'Oh ! then, you do not know the 1 wondrful art of Weatlherford, and we shall all perish !' sighed Lucy Dean, in a voice of despair. Just at that monment a sti.all boy rush ed into the room, with looks of' ;vonder depicted on his countenance, cryinag .ut, eagerly -'Oh! sister Lucy, you can't guss what I saw in the cane, near the river.' 'What dlid you sce, my sont?' inq~uir. ced Mxajora Beasly, something down the golden locks of the child. 'I saw a negro with, straight htair-. and~ his face all over- stainied red wi th pokebet ries, anid he had feathers on his head like a bir-d.' 'lIndianas!' shaouted Beasly-, leapinag ruat of thme door'. 'Inadians! Indixans!' scramned the womneun, gather'ing their chibiren, anad flying wildly to the block haouse. 'Inadianas!' a esounded f'romn all par ts of the for-t, as the aroused soldier s gras ped their- guns. But the alarm cietoo late. Two hundr'ed painatedl warr'iers, headed by the barbarously brave Weather-for'd, ini person, alr-eadly occupiied the large gat.', whieb, was litera.lly bristlinag with the steel 'f' British bayonets, supplied by thet infern'aal felon Elhic t, by the orde r ofi the court--a cour't ever devoid of c.otmnona hu'manity as8 the domiestic mnat istray of' Luc~ife'r himaself'. A trecmaendlous contest ensuted. Thea A mnericanus, animatted by thec exmnple1. of Mayjor Be'asly, strIove to putsh t he'ir entemyv from the gate. The Crzeeks, inaspir'ed to phraensy by thae trumpa~et totngue of' Weatherfoard, sta'uggled to maintain thecir grountd. Th'le weapons employed by the fraount ranaks of combat anats, were swords, knives, tomnahaawks and bayonaets.

A fter- fifteen minutes of frightful silaugh ter, the savages entered theo fort, but nottill every officer of the p~arrison was dead, or all the soldiers slan or mortal ly wounded. One might have sup~pos ed tho trieingh of the Indians then com plef4," No doubt 4heoy.. thought so themselves, as they raised a wild and deafoning yeli ofhufuiated joys .. But a the dust ere the evening sun should gild the green pine tops of the western woods---They had murdered all the he. roes. What then? They had that day to learn, if they knew not previously, that despair can always mould heroines out of the American women. Sudden ly the majestic form of the great chief, Weatherford, treinbled.--Ie heard the voice of Lucy Dean, giving orders und encouraging the females in the block houses, to resist to the last extremity. Immediately every angle Of. the fort roared with exploding rifles, touched aff by the wives and sisters of the slain, and fifty Indians fell to rise no more. A conflict, still more terrible than the irst, followed, which was finally termi nated, when the enemy fired the strong holds, and with a single exception, all the women and children perished in the iames. "Come down Lucy; you shall not be iarmed. Oh! come down,' cried the :hief of the Creeks imploringly, as lie iaw the red blaze mtiounting over the 'ouse where he had distinguished her voice.---But his words were drowned in :he shrieks f mothers and their babes, mirning away in the agonies of the -ort torturingz (of all deaths. "Five thousand dollars,' exclaimed he fraitie chief, to the man who breaks )pen that iri-hound door!' and soon lie shutter started from its hinges, be ienth the hail of blows from rocks, trminers, and hatchets. Weatherford mt loose with his sword from the friends Yh would have du.ained him, and dis Lppeared in the burning building. A'f er some ten minutes, the chief issued brth from the flames, his face blacken. d his hair crisped, and his clothes on ire, but bearing in his arms the fainting orm of Lucy Dean-that precious bur len; for whom he would have plunged, rithout shrinking, into fathomless hell tself.

And the chief called the savnge gidard, who bore off Lucy to her apartment.. Weatherford was true to his fearful promise. The wretched girl was in the rear during every scceeding engage ment, and was carried away by her dusky attendants in the vAn of every fight.

As the position in front was stormed, the Indians turned for shelter to their -town, in the rear. But lo ! no town was visible-only an impenetrable sea of rolling smoke surmounted by pillars of soaring fire. During the obstinate engagement, the Cherokee allies of the Americans had swum the river, kindled the dry huts, and cut off all chance of retreat. From the first moment of the attack, foremost amongst the self-ap pointed 'forlorn hope' who ascended the perilous wall, was the accomplished Mijor General Montgomery of Virgin in---(the capital of Alabama speaks his name to all time.)---After the route, his humanity urged him to rush through the blazing vllage, to rescue from the flames the women and children. Sid denly he met an American girl flying wildly forwards. She was so 1 ale, and her features were sa distorted by terror, that lie (lid not know ier until she sunk fainting into his arms. "Oh, Luicy! my own Lucy!' was all the astonished officer could murmur, kissing lhen clay-cold cheeks. Then caine a quick flash and a sharp roar, and Major Montgomery lay on the ground a corpse. Weatherford, in pas sing, hiotly pursued by a score of Cher okees, had tired a pistol at Lucy Dean. which took cffect in the heart of her chosen love. The Creek chief himself appeared to bear a charmed life. Without a wound amidst ali the carnage, lie distanlced the swiftest racers, and plunging into the river, through a rain of hissinig bul lets, escaped to the farther shore, arid was lost in the lofty forest.

He, together with his sympathi sing neighbors, heartily wished it at-, any where rather than where it was, and had made several Jew-like efforts to purchase from Shube that single acre; but lie was in no disposition to sel, ever replying: 'Dod rot it; I dofi't sac ly like ter sell the htimstead; I don't know what! might be tempted tu du for money; but dod rtit I ddn't sacly like ter sell.'

One morning this winter ho prepar d. for, a profes sional tour among the neighboring towns. le first packed his wares in an old, unpainted, steep-roofed box, placed upon a sleigh bottom, and cov ered it with sundry specimens of his wares; such as tin lanters, pans, pots cnllenders. wooden ware, &c., and or namented in the rear with a huge bay to contain mniseellaneous plunder; he then fastened between the thills old 'Barebones,' as he was generally knowr in the neighborhood, a sleeply looking skeleton of a horse of a tarry white col or, whose head and tail felt the attrac tion of gravitation forcibly, and ther finished off by b)uckling around 'Bare bones's' neck a string of large, old fash lonedt bells, many of whichi were so worr that clappers had fallen out long since Thus equipped Shube wrapped an oh patch quilt around his feet, flourishe< his stick, and proceeded down th4 street at an ambling pace, whilst the few deep, frog-croaking base bells a old 'Blarebonie's' neck, like the casta rnets ini the Cachuca, kept time to th4 motion of his feet.
