Samuel Brady was a noted American bor derer who floprished about sixty years ago. He was over six fe6t in height, with light blue eyes. fair skin, and dark hair. He was remarkably straight, an athletic, bold and vigorous backwoodsman, inuted to all the toils and hardships of a frontier life, and had become very obnoxious to the Indianas from his numerous successful attacks on their parties, and from shooting them in his hunting exuorsions whenever they crossed his path, or came within reach of his rile ; for he was personally engaged in more has ardous contest with the savages than any other man west of the mountains, except I Daniel Boone. He was, in fact, an "In dian hatt,r" as many of the early borderers were. Brady was also a very successful trapper and hunter, and took more beavers than any of the Indians themselves. In one of his adventurous trapping excursions to the watera of the Beaver River. or Mahoning, which in early days so abounded in the ani mals of this* speciedshat it took its name from this fact, it so happened that the In diana surprised him in his camp. and took him prisoner. He was taken alive to their encampmen,t. on the west bauk of the Beaver River, about a mile and ahaif from its mount. -After the usual exultations and rejoicings attbe capture of a noted enemy, and causing him to run the gauntlet, a fire was prepared ear which Brady was placed, after being stripped naked, and his arms unbound ' Previously to tying him to the stake, a large circle was formed around him, con sisting of Indian men, women and childreh, ti dancing and yelling, and uttering all man ner of threats and abuses that their small ti knowledge of the English language could n aford. a The prispner looked en theSe prepara. a nag .N sir tbrltat with a truly savage for* itudes. In the midst of their dancing and rejoio ing, a squaw of one of their chiefs came t near him with a child in her arms. Quick 0 as thought, 'and with intuitive frescieefbe, he snatbced it from her and threw it nto 0 the midst of the lames. Horror-truok at the sudden outrage, the Indians simultane- s ously rushed to rescoe the infant from the fire. f In the midst of this confusion Brady h darted from the cirele, overturning all that u came in his way, and arshed into the adja- d cent thickets, with the Indians yelling at his heels. He asoended the steep side of a s hill amidst a shower of ballets, and darting a down the opposite declivity, secreted him- 0 self in the deep ravines and lanrel thickets that abound for several miles to the west of a it. His knowledge of the country and won derfuol activity enabled him to elude his ene mies, and reach the settlements on the south of theOhio River, which he crossed by swimming. The bill near whose base this adventure is sai. to have happened still goes by his name ; and the incident is often referred to by the traveler, as the coach is slowly dragged up its side. Brady's residence was on Chartier's Creek, on the south side of the Ohio; and being a man of Herouban strength, notiv ity and coouge, he was generally selected as the le4er of the hardy borderers is all their incursions into the Indian territory north of the river. About the year 1780, a lsrge party of warriors from the falls of the Coyahego and the adjacent country. had made an inroad eon the south side of the Ohio River, in the lower part of what is now Washington County, thea known as the settlement of "Catrsh Camp," after an old Indian of that name who lived there when the whites first ease into the country of the Monougahela River. This party bed ourdered several families and with apluader" bad recrossed the Ohio before effectual pursuit eould be made. By Brady a party was dir.otly summon ed of followers, who hasteed em after t em the I . 110 ia .ie astesgd one or two y earler, be osld sot overtake thea is time . arrest their returm to their villags. h the spot where the town of Ravema new a ,the Indians separated into two pres, es of which west to the aorthamd the other west, to the falls of the C. men ales divided; a part pr ued the nerther trail, sad aport went with their eammader to the Indian villages So the river inthe present township .a ?ktwis PaageaCaesty.

Through this pass the water rushes like a racehorse, chafing and roaring at the con finement of its current by the rocky chan nel, while, at a sh,'rt distance above, the stream is at least fifty yar.1' wide. As he eppr'ached the ohasm, Brady. knowing that life and death was in the e-f fort, concentrated his mi,.1ity powers, '-nd leaped the stream at a sing:e bound. It so happened that. on the opposite clifft the leap was favored by a low place, into which he dropped, and graspi·e the bushes, he thus helped himself to asacud to the top of the cliff. The Indians, for a few morment>t were lost in admiration, and before they had recol. lection, he was half way up the side of the eppopite hill, but still '."-" reach of their rifles. They could ,ot him at alny him alive, for tortua-.3jyds long-delayed revenge£ th1y fr'-bore the use of their rifle; but now, seeing him likely to esepfe, they all fired upon him. One bullet wounded him severely in the hip, but not so badly as to prevent his pro gress. The Indians having to make a consider ble circuit before they could cross the stream, Brady advanced a good distance ahead. His limb was growing stiff from the wound, and as the Indians gained on him, he made for the pond which now bears his name, and plunging in, swam under water a considerable distance, and came up under the trunk of a large oak which had fallen into the pond. This, although leaving only a small breathing-place to support life, still com pletely sheltered him from the sight. The Indians, tracing him by the blood to the water, made diligent search ail around the pond, but finding no sign of his exit, finally came to the conclusion that he had sunk and was drowned. As they were at one time standing on the very tree beneath which he was concealed. Brady understanding their language, was very glad to hear the result of their delib erations; and after they had gone, lame and hungry, he made good his retreat to his home. . His followers also all returned in safety. The chasm across which he leaped is in sight of the bridge which crosses Cuyahoga, and is known in all that region by the name of "Brady's Leap." Sparkin' Sundey Night. We. who have seen as many as sixteen years in this vale of tegrs, understand to a verity the mingled joys and sorrows of our Sunday nights' courtship. With what trepidation half doubt, half triumph, was noted the effect of "Warren's t Blackln"oo our new sewed boots; or, with trembling fngers. e'seyed to tie the fancy neckcloth, for which our tailor had charged t us such an outrageous price, unblushinmgly t affi.ning that he was making a present of it a a)bet i4u9.t; . ow hated as we t oontaining our a,, - heart as we approachbe it, and make a ( circuit of a block or two before coming c to the door !

Ulster county, this morning at the house of George Wm. Purdy, who resides seven miles north of Newburg. near the first named place. While laboring under tern porary insanity Mr. Purdy madoa desper ,ire attempt to murder his two sisters. He. resided with his m,.ther. Mrs. Phebe Purdy. and his sister. Miss Eliza Purdy. Hle was ill with an epileptic attack and partially de ranged. Another sister. Mrs. Anna Conk liung spent the night at the homestead to assist in taking care of her brother. The three ladies occupied a bed on the floor of the sitting room. Purdy slept in a room opening into this room. At four o'clock this morning George ptered the room oc cupied by the ladits and stopped the dcock saying that the ticking ai:noyed him nud pre* ited his sleepiug fiesw mi ues Sat-.i rng. oJ b . roo~ tl ka h.iu red " " " --.--.aL r . h sl f flat ou the floor and remain e motion ss. Tie sisters took him up and said him on the bed and then went into his - noand occupied his bed. The mother refnried with bhimn. In a few minutes he started up from thb bed, seized a fire-shovel. and went to the room where the sisters were. Opening the door he shouted : *I'm going to kill you both. The next place I will meet you istt the bar of God," and commenced striking them on the head with the shovel. Then throwing that down he seized each by the throat and tied to choke them to death. After ater rible struggle they freed themselves from his grasp, and escaped to the sitting-room. He followed them, and the struggle was re. uewed. The stove was overturned and the house was set on fire. At length the staters sucoeeded in breaking away from the ma niac. Miss Purdy running out at the front door and Mrs. Conkling started for a rear door. Purdy pursued the latter, and having got a razor out of the burea drawer. overtook her just as she got outside of the door. Here another struggle look place, and the madman endeavoring to cut his sister's throat and she battling for life. In the effort to get the razor from him she received two outs, one in the right arm. just missing the main artery, and the other in the hand, but he drew the razor across her throa, making a terrible gash, laying bare the windpipe and the root, of the ton gue but missing the main arteries. While this struggle was, going on Miss Purdy had run to the houses of several of the neigh bors and alarmed them. The first one of "them to reach the spot was Daniel Van Oredell, who, on hearing the alarm had dressed himself as quickly as possible and followed Miss' Purdj to the house. She reached it first and met the brother. Hav ing, as he supposed. finished Mrs. Conkling, he attacked Miss Pardy, and seized her by the hair of the head, threw her down on the ground. Mr. Va-t Orsdall coming up at this time, he knocked the brother down, and after another struggle managed, with the help of his young son and Miss Purdy, to secure the madman. But it took their united strength to hold him, and they feared ha Mrs. onkling would bleed to death t George was tied, and Mrs. Conkling was d cared for. She had made her tyr into the f house after receiving her wounds, and the sister, knowing that the building was on fire, was afraid that her mother and sister t would be burned up, but the flames were a soon extinguished, and all danger Trom that source was averted. In the course of the morning an officer arrived from Marl borough-about a mile north of the scene of the tragedy-and George was handtuffed. HIe went to bed and refuses to say awurd to any one, but lay in the bed as if asleep. To-morrow he will be taken to the State House at Poughkeepsie. From the C.pital.i Parson Newman vs. Confunlus and Po Slygamy. The Rt. Rev. Maj. Gen'l. John P. New man has been selected to teach Christianity to the Japanese embassy and confute Con fucius. This is the oficial annoteement made, and its condesoending. patronising tone is, to say the least of it. oharming. It is to be hoped that the Rt. Rev. in hid cru sade against Confucius will be more success ful than he was in his attack upon Orson Pratt. The Rt. Rev. went out to Salt Lake city with a band of musio, consisting of his own horn, and after no end of blowing threw down the theological glove of the church militant which the pqlygamous follower of the polygamous Brigham incontinently took up, and at it the two divines went, hammer and tongs. The next we heard of our be loved the Rt. Rev. Maj. Gen'l. he had passed from theology to astronomy, being fiat on his back and utterly helpless, while the polygamous prophet Orson stood over him waving the Bible and bigamy in triumph. By-the-bye. why is it that our dearly be loved turns up in wrath his cbaste nose at the mere mention of the polgamoes'Mor mons-poonds his pulpit, Bible and calls upon his Lord the President to hang' and quarter these unbelievers, while he is so pweet upon those polygamous Japanese I We have seen him pour out hot ssntcp of earthly and everlasting damnation on the poor Mormons while dancing attendance, opera hat in hand, about the embassy and moving his theological bowels of compas sion over the young heathen Koldamme. C-,n it be that the honors and emoluments of minister and envoy of the United States to the Empire ofJapgg have softened his seal ? We wot not. It'annot be that this great light of the Methodist Episcopal Metropoli tan Memorial Church, with the chimes attaohe--and God's stump orator for the Fog bank-so far forgets his high mission as ever t. smell of the flesh pots ? Certainly not. And yet whereto lies solution tb this theological mystery? We took up our pen, however,.to sugjst that if we wish to conciliate these Japanese. and not only join the civilisatlgn of the nrw eat to that of the older East, and so ea profitable trade, we had uetter keep oui propagandism well in the background. Religious toleratio does not obtain any more in the East than it has in the West, and while we are persecuting the Mormot., under color of law. and geneserly in vi:lation ofit, theJapamese government is persecat the Newusar with about the same seal as-the sasmeroeea.

The steamer New York, of the' German line. experienced. on her last trip from Bre men to this port. weather that is seldom met within the Atlantic. The New YorkI left Bremen on the 27th of January, with a full cargo and some three hundred and eighty passengers. The first three drys at sea were comparatively mild. but on the let of 'February a gale that evenually led to a hurricane set in, and lasted throughout the greater part of the voyage. On the 61h the ba-homet.r fell to an extraordinary low degree. Capltain Von Emeter. who was nu deck at the time. ordered all sails furled and the hatches battoned down. This was done, and not a minute too soon, as in a few seconds the wind hurled the sea over the vessel. Three days the 'hurricane cou - tinued. On the 9th. the storm having lulled, the first oulcer of the steamer. Mr. Auder .,n ordered ~veraj sailors alofcam d Chris n Schmidt, Wthile d1isebahd * ge. .[ tas ba n.cp and was crushed to deattby falling against the guards of the deck. The passengers, terrified by the force of the storm, commingled together. and, de. spite the laws of the ship. refused to be sep arated even refusing at times to partake of the meals provided by the steward. 0n the night of the 10th. while Captain Von Eme ter, the first officer. and a German lady from I Hamburg were standing on the bridge. a terrible wave struck the ship broadside. Captain Von Emeter attempted to catch the lady, but mis-ed her. The wave washed him against the bulwarks, and by clinging to a railing be saved his life. The chief officer grasped her around the waist. and t by taking hold of the mizzen ropes, saved u both his own and his companion's life. The d bridge upon which they were standing was I torn from its sockets by the wave, together a with the lifeboat. The water also.flooded o the companioonway, and entered the first t cabin in an immense volume. The scene b at that time was indescribable. Women. ft half dressed, ran from berth to berth, chil- ti dren screamed, and men accustomed to a ocean voyages gave up in despair, imagin- a ing that the brave steamer was on the eve a of foundering. This last wave, however. ii proved to be the worst of the hurricane, and b the coal being all consumed, thb vessel. after drifting about helplessly, reached Hali fax on the 14th Here the vessel was re victualed and recoaled, and she arrived safety at this harbor yesterday afternoon. , The New York will have to undergo con- s siderable repairs before she again crosses the Atlantio. Irmra the Murray (Ky.) Gaamsu.l Enoch Arden in Kentucky. A most strange and thrilling romance in real life has just culminated in this county. and we hasten to lay its - details before our readers. It appears that a short time pre viod to the breabing out of the rebellion a oung married man named Eldridge Miller. ith his wife and two very small children. emigrated from Calloway county to Arken sas. When the war cawme on he enlisted in the Confederate army, and soon after was taken prisoner in action and st to a Chi dition that he should enlist to Vest.an fight the Indians. HA had not , n i. sue West long until he was taken captive by the red skins. After a long and weary cap tivity of years, be at length made his escape and returned to Arkansas. Meanwhile his wife, suposing him to be dead. had left there and joined her relatives in Henry county. Tenn. And here, after searching for her in vain in Arkausas, the long-lost husband came, some two weeks ago. in quest of her and his children. He found her living at Crossland, in this county, but no longer belonging to him. A man named Wm. Schrader, a widower with nine children, and formerly a Calloway countian, had become enamored of her in Arkansas. and, follow. tng her to Tennessee, had finally prevailed upon upon her to marry and remove with him to this county. Finding her again mar ried he did not seek to induce her to return to him, but merely laid claim to his chil dren. These were refused him. and he institutedtuit to recover them. The case was to have had a hearing on Monday last. but oh the Sunday previous, at the wo man's instance, there was a private inter view between her and h.r Bret husband, which resulted in their eloping together. leaving Schrader in the lurch, and going. it is supposed, back to Arkansas. Schra der does not seem to take sis loss very greatly to heart, but says his wife was perfectly right in going off with her first husband if she loved him best. romn the Ilavrille Ledgerl Bnamelkng the Face and the Rasult. A lady in Louisaille paid seventy-five dollars, we are told, for having her face enameled for the ball given at the Gait House to the Grand Duke Alzxis. 'The enamel was warranted to last three days, and so it did. The lady wastaken ill upon her return home from the ball, her face became greatly swol len. the most acute plan suceoeded, and it was only by the employment of the, best medical skill that her life was saved. This statement we have from an undoubted source. Bet thi ease of this 4laedybat so had as that of another Louisville lady who became enamored of the odious fashion of enameling the face. She visited another city, far to the eastward, some five months ago, for the pur pose of having her face enameled according to the latest Parisian mode. She had heard that a acted Parisian was engaged in the enameling business at the city is question. and to him she went upon her arrival. For tke sum of five hundred dollars he agreed to enamel hbe face so scientifically that the enamel would remain undamaged for three fears, and a year or two longer if extra care was take, in washing the face acording t his prescribed method.

Thle ladyprr.eived the enamel and retuirn ed to her home in this city Since her re turn she has disappeard from society. There was so much poison in the enamel that its effects were almost total paralysis of the facial nerves, and what was once a truly beau.tiful face is to-day a distorted, disfig ur d and ulcerous one. The lady's beauty has disappeared for ever. and if her physicians succeed in saving I her life they will have accomplished more I than they had a right to hope for. Her eyes are terribly inflamed and disfigured, and the ight. of them fast failing.

I do not say that it Is not her business to vote. But I do say ' that the women who does not please is a false note in the harmonies of nature. She may not have youth or beauty, or pren manner; but she must have something in her voice or Sexpression, or both, which it makes you feel better disposed towards your race to look at or listen to. She knows that as well as we do; and her first question after you have b. en talking your soul into her consoious ness is, Did I please? A woman never for gets her sex. She would rather talk with a man than an angel, any day. The less there is of sex about a woman, the more she is to be dreaded. But take a real woman at her best moments, well dressed enough to be pleased with herself; not so resplendent as to be a show and a sensation, with the varied outside influences that set vibrating the har:noulo notes of her nature stirring in the air about her-and what has the social life to compare with one of those vitals interchanges of thought and feeling with her that makes an hour memor t able! What can equal her tact. her delivery, her subthrlety of apprbehesion. her quickness to feel the change of temperature as the warm and cooi currents of talk blow by I turns? At one moment she is macrosopl,ical. ly intellectual. critical. scrupulous in judge mI ent as an analy.sit's tahince, and the next as sympathetic as the open rose that west. ens the mind froi what:virquaarter it find its way to her b:,'om.

IRon VS. WoODEN SuHPs.-Secretary Robeson's hot-house plan for encouraging iron ship building is pertectly consistenl with the general policy of the Protectionists. Special Interests must be "protected" lit some way, whether the process resorted to be'detrimental to other interests and the general welteare of the people or not. By the way. it is not a settled fact that iron ships are preferable to wooden ones. That they are not as seaworthy as has been es tablished by experience. The statistics of marine disasters show that out of forty-two Atlantic steamer,- lost at sea between the years 1841 and 1872. thirty-eight were iron and only four of wood ; while of the line of iron ships running into the St. Lawrence and Portland, nine were lost between 1857 and 1864. and five iron sailing vessels, all built in Great Britain, and sent to sea in 1865 and 1868. have never been beard from.
