For 1 scorn the strength of your puny hand.;,

How I laughed as 1 lay concealed from si&hl,
For many a counties hour,
At the childish boast ofhuuian might,
And the pride of human power.

Ab he feebly turned at the tardy wheel,
Or tugged at the weary oar.

It tvtis a bright Sunday afternoon, in July,

we should refer our readers back that they may
know the existing state of things in It at
the time of the commencement of otir story.
sitcceded in securing the savagew ho had enter
ed, and now the stubborn captive lay panting on
the floor. All was confusion among the women
and children : but in a few moments, by a little
effort on the part of the pastor, quiet was resto-
! red.
I The Indian captive was placed in a safe place, j
i and measures were taken by the settlers to ren- j
der the defence more secure. They were well
armed, all having taken their weapons to church
with them, and there was a store of ammunition
and provisions, in a vault beneath the church.
The savages, after having been defeated in their
efforts to enter the church, had drawn off to a
short distance. Ondega was much chagrined at
when his head w as cleft by an axe iu the hand of
Mr. l'ierson.
The Indians now poured through the apper
ture, and, although they met with a desperate
resistance, were fast accumulating inside the
door. The door w as e.r. barred by those w ho bad
reached the inside, and a'.l rushed in eager for
blood. But they were opposed hymen lighting
for their loved ones and homes.
The settlers no longer used rifles but resortod
to their knives, and the manner in which t'hey
were used showed that il was no new av capon in
their hands.
But it was evident that this unequal contest
could not last much longer. Although none of
the settlers had as yet lieen killed, scarcely-one
but was severely wounded. The savages out
numbered them two to one. Seeing the despe
rate state of things, Jenny Birch seized a toma
hawk which had Ken thrown down, and rushed
into the thickest cf the fight, and for a moment
that tomahawk was suspended in the air ami
when it descended it carried a messenger of etcath
to a bloody savage whose tomahawk was pending
over her father's head.
