Whal did they lutead.
l)ispatcbhe private and public tell
us that among the- things captsird
from the enemy was a large quantity
of haudculff. To think that in this
so-called civilized age, any party
placed in the situation of the feder
alists, should ever think of hand
cuffing such of our brethren as might
perchance fall into their hands, is
detestable to the inlaginative mind.
They would treat us then. with bar
barity did it lay in their power, but
thanks to our God they have not yet
had an opportunity of so doing, and
the Lord willing they never will ?
We can find no words in.the En
glish language which could convey
our utter contempt of the actions, and
contemplations of any set of men,
calling themselves Americans, who
wonld dare give expression, as they
have in tones worthy of uncivilized
barbarians. This is not the trait of
trite Americans, it is the conception
of a generation who once bore the
name of Americals, but to whom the
namne does not now justly belong.
We tru.t in the Almighty l'rovi
•deuce to canrry us through our presi
dent ditlculties, as warriors truite to
their name andl conntry. hoping
that in every elnwoutniter the fotrct ofi
the Southern Confederacy may prove
victorious to the utter niilazeLntiit of
our accursed, inhuman, ani colntelnp
title enemy, the Federals. Let not
:inothter ilnch of ground be ceded to!
thiuI, on tile lcontrary, let us carry
the war into their niidst.

some tiae; at a short distance within
the woods, he heard a noise like that
of a dog gnawing bones. Drawing
near to the spot with a stealthy step,
he dimly perceived a living object
among the bushes, and invoking aid
from on high, discharged an arrow at
it. The thick and tanged unider
wood prevented him from seeing tle
effect of the shot, but as the animal
did not stir, he flattered himself that
he had killed it. With this hope he
awaited until the day dawned, when I
he beheld his victim, a huge creature
of the panther kind, lying dead, the
arrow having' passed through its en
trails and pierced its heart.
Gathering together the mangled t
remains of the infant, and replacing
them in the coffin, Ortiz dragged his i
prey in triumph to the village, with
the arrow still in its body. The ox- I
ploit gained him credit with the old
hunters, and for somne time softened
even the terocity of ilirriftigna. The a
resentment of the latter, however, t
for the wrongs he had suffered from I
white men, was. too bitter to be ap
peased. Some time after, his elder I
daughter came to Ortiz and warned
him that her father had determined
to .acrifice him at the next festival,
which was just at hand. She stated
that the influence tf her mother, her I
sisters and herself, wou!ldbe no longeB
of any avail to save him, and there
fure wished that he should take re- t
filge with a neighboring Cacique L
named Mucozo, who had sought her
hand in marriage, and would be- t
friend him, t;fr her sake. "This
very night," said the kind-hearted r
i maiden, *.at the nolthern extremity i
of the village, you will find a trusty f
t]i.nd who will guide you to a bridge
about two leagnls hence; on arrivil;g
thetre, you must send hint back, that

ing dawn.s, to avoid suspicion, for
well he knows that the hold act, in
daring to assist you, may bringdtItwn
,deetruction upon us both. Six it
