Hut O the hill for a broken sleigh la added to the sleiglung! A Thrilling Adventure. It was about the year 1805 that 1 settled in Virginia, near the falls of the Kanawha The country, at that time, was an unbrok’en wilderness But few settlements had been made by the whiles and they were so far apart as to render vain nil hopes of assistance in case of attack from hostile Indians, uum j hers of whom still infested the neigh borhood. I lived there alone with my I wife for several months unmolested,and ! by dint of perseverance, then young and hardy, had succeeded in making quite a clearing in the forest, which I planted with corn, and which promised an abun dant yield. One morning, after we had dispatched our humble meal, and just prepared to venture forth upon my accustomed rou lino of labor, my attention was arret ted by the tinkling of a cowbell iu the corn field. “There," said my wife, ‘ the cow is iu the cornfield." Hut the car of the backwoodsman be come by education very acute, especially
so. from the fact that his safely often depends upon the nice cultivation of (hat sense. I was not so easily deceived. I listened. The sound wa repealed “That," said 1, in reply to my wife’s remark, * was not the tinkle uf a bull upon the neck uf u cow, but a decoy from some Indian, who wishes to draw me into an ambush." Relieving this to be the case, I took down my old musket, and seeing that it was properly loaded, 1 stole cautious ly around the field toward the spot from which the sound seined to proceed. As 1 suspected, there iu a clump of bushes crouched uu Indian, wnitiug for me to appear in answer to his decoy bell, that he might send a fatal bullet to my heart. 1 approached without discoveiing myself to him until within shooting distance, then raised my piece and fired. The bullet sped true to its murk and the Indian fell dead. Not knowing but that he was accom * panied by others. I returned with all speed to the cabin and having firmly barricaded tho door, 1 watched all day for tho companions of tho Indian 1 hud killed. To add to the danger and seem ing hopelessness of my situatiou, I dis covered that I had but one shot left, and if attacked by numbers, 1 should be entirely in theiV power. Determined to do the best with the powder, I put it into the musket and then waited for tho approach of uight, feeliug sure of uu ulkick. Night came at last. A beautiful moonlight it was too, and favored me , greatly, us I would thereby be able to observe the inoveinenie of the enemy as they approached tho cabiu. It was some two hours after nightfall ■ and yet I had neither heard nor seen a J t ‘ sign of the Indians, when suddenly 1 was startled by the baying of-my dog at the stable. The stable stood a little to the west of the cabin, and between the two was a •••ifeh of clear ground on which the light of the moon fell uuob strutted. Judging from the noise at the stable that they would advance from that direction. I posted myself at the port hole uu that side of the eshiu. I had previously placed my wife on the cross pole iu the chimney, ao that in case our enemies effected an entrance into our cabin, she might climb out through tha lower chimney aud effect her escape. For myself I entertained no hope ; but determined to sell my life dearly. With breathless anxiety 1 waited at the port hole. At length I saw them emerge from the shadow of the stable, and advance across the open ground to ward my cabin. Oue—two—throe— gre it heaven! six stalwart Indians, armed to the teeth, and urged on by the hope of revenge, and I alone to opposc thciu with one charge of powder. My case was desperate, indeed. With quick and stealthy steps, iu close, single file, they approached, and were already within a few yards of the house when a slight change in the movement of the forward Indian changed the position uf the six, so that a portion uf the side of each was uncovered. They were in range and oue aim would cover all. Quick as thought I aimed and fired. As the smoke cleared away I could hardly credit what my senses showed me as the result of my shot.— The fifteen slugs with which I had loaded the musket had done their work well ; five of the six Indians lay dead upon the ground, and the sixth had dis appeared. Although no enemies were now in sight. 1 did not venture forth until morning. There lay the bodies uf the five Indians undisturbed, together with ! the rifle of the other. Securing the arms and ammunition of the fallen In j dians. I followed up the trail of the I missing one until I reached the river, beyond which point I could discover no trice whatever. From tho amount of 1 blood which marked his frail, together I with an unmistakable evidence that he ' had picked his way with difficulty. 1 ! was led to believe that he was mortally wounded, and in order to prevent his j body fulling into the hands of the white j foe. he had groped his way to the river and thrown himself iu the current which had borne it away. The Indians had killed my cow. and j that you may be assured, was no trifling , loss, yet iu my gratitude for my escape 1 ; from the merciless savages, I would ; have made greater sacrifices. I was well provided by means of arms and rnnniu- I ill it ion taken from the six Indians, in I 1 case of a second attack, but this fortu ; nately proved to be my lat Adventure with the savages. Not one of the band I had escaped to tell the tale and incite | , his brethren to revenge the death of his comrades. “Ah I" exclaimed the old mao, while tho tears gushed from his eyes at the memory of that eventful night, “that was a glorious shot—the best I ever made!” An Ingenious Robbery. Many years ago, a young man, who was as some people say, “very green," went into London, lie had a guinea, of which ho was very proud. Some of his friends told him that the j pickpockets of London would rob him ol Ills Money. They were very export in robbing people of llicir purses and watches This young man conclude! he would not carry his guinea iu his pocket or his purse, but—where do you ' think? Why, in his mouth! lie ’ walked along the street, looking at the wonderful things that were to be seen 1 in the show windows. He kept his 1 eyes wide open, aud his mouth, too. — ■ lie could have seen without opening 1 j his mouth ; but some people do now, us be did thru, keep both mouth and eyes ’ opeu. As he stalked ulo:ig, a little ooy rushed up against him and let a number 1 of pennies dr on on the (lavement. Tm -1 mediately sow* kind hearted Demons began to pick up the peunics and hand them to him ; but he cried out, louder ’ than ever. “1 don’t cure about the ‘ pennies; where is my guinea?" A man, looking very much like a gentleman, said : “What ar*. you crying shout, my little man V* “Oh," said he, “I’ve lost my guinea.” 1 “Why,” said the man, • there it is in that booby's mouth 1" 1 “You rascal,” exclaimed the bystand ers, “give the boy bis guinea." 1 In vain did he declare it was his own. r The people standing around made him ' deliver tho guinea over to the boy.— L The man hud seen the guinea in the 1 mouth of the country youth, and hired 1 the boy to play this trick. I suppose 2 tho man got tho greater part of the 1 money. Indian Mu pe rat I lion. 1 A peculiar superstition exist* among ' all the Indians of the Pacific coast, and )’ is adhered to with such tenacity os to i be a groat obstacle lo their civilisation. - AVhenever a death occurs in one of their houses they leave it and burn the buil -< ding No efforts of tho agents have T been able to eradicate this foolish cub -3 tom. 80 long as this superstition exists t among them it will be difficult to im r ' prove their condition by inducing them 1 to reside in permsnent homes, and (boa adopting the first step necessary to their I civilisation. Occasionally a family evade c what they consider the fatal consouuen -0 ces of a death by removing the sufferer s before he expiree to some outside tern . porary hut erected for the purpoee II Thus, by adopting an expedient which a tho agents have taught them, they 1 sometimes save their residences at the g cost’ of the less expensive building, c which if always destroyed by firo. A tihoat Story. That sparititions do not always wan der without sufficient esuse, is proved by the well atteste i fact which we give below : Last Tuesday fortnight, as Mrs. a lady of rather literary taste and stu dious habit, sat reading in the drawing room, the clock on the mantle piece struck ttcrUr ; us the lost stroke rever berated through the aparimeuta the door was flung wide open ! In the act of raising her head to repel tho intru sion (unrung for) of her servant, her • yes rested on the form of her lute hus band ! Sbt screamed and fell senseless on the carpet I This brought up such members of the family as had not retir ed to rest; restoratives were administer ed. and when Mrs had regained her suspended faculties, and being a woman of strong mind and highly cul tivated intellect, she felt disposed to consider the whole distress she bad undergone as the result of certaiu as sociations between the melancholy tale she hud been perusing aud her late loss operating on a partially deranged ner vous system She. however, consider ed it advisable that her maid servant should repose iu her chamber, lest any return of what she considered u nervous affection should distress herself and a larm the family. Lust Tuesday night, feeling stronger and in bettor spirits than she has been for several months past, Mrs. dispensed with the pre sence of hor attendant, retired alone to Ler chamber, went to bed a little be fore ten o’clock Exactly as the clock struck hrrhr she was awakened from sleep, and distinctly beheld tho apa ra tion site had before seen, advancing from the table, on which stood her night lamp, till it stood opposite to and ; drew aside the curtains uf her bed i She describes her very blood retreating with icy cbillness to hor heart from ’ every vein. The countenance of her j beloved in life wore* not its benevolent I aspect ; the eyes once beaming with | affection, were uow filled with stern re- I gaid on tho trembling, huif dissolved 1 being, who, with tho courage of desper ation, thus adjured him, “Charles I dear Charles I why arc you come again V* “Jessie/’ slowly aud solemnly anpira : ted the shadowy form, Waving iu his hand a small roll of writing paper, \ “Jeuir, pay my nnrKixtprr accounts ami 1 | let me rest in peace I" i New away of licit lug a Drink. i A good joke is told on one uf our 1 clever saloon keepers, which ia too full | of genuine humor, -under pressing cir- I cuinsuneca/’ to be lust ; A short time ago a representative of j j the Greeu Isle stepped into the saloon j of the person above alluded to, and with I u countenance full uf inquiry, said : “An have you got any good rye whis key “Vos, very good ; the best iu town," said the saloon man. “An have you got any half-pint bot tles, my good man “Yes." was the reply. “Ah' will you please to fill one with your beat rye whiskey for me V “Of course," aid the obliging dealer; and after reaching for the required flask and spending a full ha f hour iu cleaning it. repaired lo the cellar, drew half'u piut of his Bourbon, and presen ted it to the gentleman in waiting. “Fat" look the buttle, raised it to his lips, swallowed about half of its con tents, and then, after making the ap propriate face over it, said in a very confidential tone : “Will you phase sit this to one side i till I call for it ?" The saloon keeper, “smelting a large sited rat trap full of small mice," care fully stowed away tho saief half-filled bottle. The follow never called for it, but took this novel way of obtaining u drink. taftukey, so Called. If the temperance societies would publish the revelations recently made us to the way in which whiskey is man ufactured in New York, it would have more effect ou the cause than volumes of didactic reasoning, is is conclusive ly shown that men whose digestive or gans arc nut iron clad cannot drink the liquor of ni(dern times with impunity. The manufacturer is not content with making a harmless imitation, but is led by avarice to reduce the strength of the alchohol one half by adding water, put ting in fiery substances that the decep tion way not be discovered. Thu* the liquid burns the throat of the drinker, who is thereby led to believe that it is strong. The receipt generally used is as follows: To 40 gallons common whiskey add 30 gallons water, 0 gallons tincture of Guinea pepper, 1 quart tincture of kcllitory, 2 ounces acetic ether, li gallons strong tea.
