I was fatiguod by a week a traveling by
stage-coach, over what they called an " alli

carelessly striking tho tops of his boots.

on tho Ohio shore of Lake Erie, had ans
at the earliest dawn to enjoy his favori
amusement of hunting deer. This oxoit;
sport he had been accustomed to follow

by the aid of dogs, would drivo the deer ir
the lake, whore Sweatland would purs
them in his canoo and shoot them with
difficulty. On the present occasion ho ^
left his cabin without his coat or waiatco
to listen for tho having of the dogs as th
drove the deer. Tho welcome sound k-h
greeted his ears, and ho was surprised to li4

the outline of the Canada shore greeted his
eyes, and he found lie had made land in the
vicinity of Long Point. Here he met with
another difficulty, in an adverse wind and
heavy breakers, but the same hand which
had sustained him thus far guided him in this
emergency, and after thirty hours of
-i milting aud incredible exertions, he succeed
ed in lauding in safety. What his emotions
were on again treading the " green and solid
earth," we shall not attempt to inquire ; but
hia trials wore not yet ended. He found
rodeuH'himself, faint with hunger, ami exhausted
)tl with fatigue, at tho distance of forty miles
1 from any human habitation, while the coun
try that intervened was a desert, tilled with
marshes and tangled thickets, from which
.nothing could be obtained to supply his
wants. These difficulties, together with the
' reduced state of his strength, made his pro
gross toward the settlement slow and toil
some. On his way ho found a quantity of
>goods which had beeu thrown ashore from
j[. tho wreck of some vossel, which, although
they aflorded him no immediate relief, were
1 Ufterward of material service. After a long
and weary march tlirough the wilderness he
arrived at length in the settlement, where he
w'as received aud treated with great kindness
Ja and hospitality by the people. When his
strength was sufficiently recruited, lie pro
cured a boat and went in search of the goods.
These ho found and brought off. Ho then
started overland for Buffalo, where he dis
posed of part of his treasure, and with the
proceeds furnished himself with a complete

Within a day or two he was on his way to

captain, had given him up for dead, and wei t*

bo easily imagined as lie approached the
vicinity of that home which he had never
expected again to behold. When the packet
arrived opposite the house, the crew gave
three long, loud, and hearty cheers, and tired
guns from tho deck in token of joy, which
led his family to anticipate his return. On

When he reached London he had but a

with the gay saloons of Paris. Everv tiling
