LEG END OP THC ALLBQHA3Y HI VIS Many of the wild legends of border strife and Indian barbarity that hare been enacted along the short* of the Alleghany and Ohio, have sever been rescued from the dim and fa ding remembrances of a past age. But occa sionally a story of thrilling interest is snatched from the lingering record* of the red man The story i am about to relate I received from an old Indian pilot of the Alleghany. It was many years ago. when that stem old chief Cornplanter (whose remains now repose in si lence and loneliness on the banks of that beau teous river he loved so well) was in his glory. His tribe roamed over the dense and unbroken forests along its banks, fearless, unmolested, and free. Iiis people were hostile to the whitea, and never lost any opportunity to lie in ambush and seize the lonely voyager as he descended the river, and consign him to the stake and the torture. But the watchful, shrewd, and deadly foe of Cornplanter and the whole '-tawny race ' was the indomitable and fearlessCapt. Samuel Brady. This veteran pioneer and Indian hun ter was one of those noble specimens of the hardy foresters who plunged fearlessly into the interminable forests that then overspread so large a portion of the Western States. Like Daniel Boon, Lewis Wetsel, Simon Kenton, and others, who made Indian hunting a pastime, his deadly hate of the Indian, ana his burning pssslon for hunting them down, amounted to a monomania. This hatred was in consequence of the wrongs they had inflicted on his family?his father, Captain John Brady, and his brother having fallen victims to the tomahawk and scalping knife. The scene of the present .-tory is at a placo known to boatmen and raftsmen as "Brady's Bend," and where now the noise and bustle of a new manufacturing town called the "Gre*t Western" resounds along the shores that then echoed only to the whoop of the savage or the panther's scream. It is a bend in the Tiver, of nine miles in length, and is sometimes called the "Nine mile Uend," and is scarcely half a mile across the neck. Here in this bend Cornplanter, return ed from pome successful inroads upou the whites, had secured several prisoners, by ty ing them to as many tires, while his swarthy and hideously pointed followers were bu^y in making preparations for the faggot and the torture. Tfce s'ake was crected and the faggots pre pared with ali tho coolness and refinement of Indian barbarity. It was a beautiful even ing; the sun was ju^t sinking behind the lofty hill upon the op}x>sitj rhore. Calmness had throwu its oily wand ujhiu the Alleghany's crystal tide, and it slept The full, round, moon. just bursting through the tree tons be hind tbem sailed calmly through the distant blue, and ca-t its mellow beams upon the sleeping river, and danoed upon its placid bo som. The melancholy note of the whip-poor-will from the adj >ining thicket fell sweetly uj?ou the ear. The victims were unbound and led forth to the place of torture. At this moment, a voice, high up among the frowning rocks that loomed out 1'r 'in the thick hemlocks that crowik tho hill oppo.-ite, hailed Cornplanter in tho Indian tongue, informing him thai ?? he was an Indian warrior, just retarded from the war path with a goodly Lumber of prisoners." Ho desired that the cere monies of the tor ture might be suspended until he cou'd f>rd the river and join them, when they would cel ebrate the occasion with unusual demonstra tions of savage rejoicings. To this Cornplan ter consented. Tin- flames that had been Kind led were extinguished, and the prisoners again bound to the trees. In the meantime, Brady, for it was he who had deceived the wild Indian, with a body of men moved .silently up fhe river to a placo known as " Truby's Ripple," and there ford ing the river, drew his men up across the neck of the bend, and moved noiselessly down upon the savages. So cautious was his approach that the Indians were completely cut off from retreat before they became alarmed. Bradv's men hemned them in from behind, while the Alleghany rolled in front. The first intimation to the savages of his approach was communicated by a deadly discharge from his unerring rifles. The Indians fought with des paration. but were overpowered; all were killed or taken prisoners save the chief, Cornplanter, who, finding himself alone, plunged into the river, and swam for the other shore. Being a good swimmer, he remained several minutes under water, but as he rose for breath, he was greeted with a shower of bullets In this way, alternately swimming under wator as long as he could hold his breath, and then rising to the surface, ho escaped unhurt, and reaching the other shore in safety, socreted himself behind a large standing rock The prisoners were of course unbound, and all joined in the jollifications and joy at the timely and unlooked for release. The rook that shielded Cornplanter from Brady's bul lets was pointed out to mo by the old Indian, in a recent trip down this river. It is known as " Cornnlanter's Rock." The old Indian guvo me the story with a sad and dejected countenance, in broken English. "Alas! what a change! Where then the sheeny tide of the beauteous Alleghany parted only to the swift-skimming birchen canoe and echoed to the wild voices that came out of the dense, dark forest, now is heard the shrill whistle of the steam-pipe and tho rushing of the mighty steamer. \\ here the tawny sav age then reclined upon the shady banks from his pursuit of the deer, the panther, and the bear, or rested from the war-path, is now the scene of life and activity. The tall old forest has receded from beforo the advance of civilization, and given place to farms, beautiful villas and bustling towns. The Indian, too, has passed away; but a few. and they but miserably decaying relics of what they once were, are now occasionally seen, the descendants of the proud race that once could call these hills, and groves, and rivers all their own. Alas! in the language of the poet: " Chieftains and their tribes have perished, Like the thickets where they grew." PnrJlsANT Sport.?It is stated that a noted M. 1>. of Indiana has recently created quite u sensation among members of the modical pro fession in that section, by hi3 success in trap ping tape worms. He has invented a gold trap less than an inch in length, and about a quarter of an inch in diameter. A bait is laced within the trap, and after tho patient as fasted several dnys. the apparatus is low ered by means of a string down the throat of the patient The worm, which is supj>osed to be hungry, pushes the trap to seise the bait, and is instantly caught; and the operator feel ing a bite, pulls on the string, and draws out trap, worm and all. The invention has been patented ut Washington.?Rochester Dtm. Thb Fourth is Canada.?The Fourth of July celeuiation at Hamilton, C. W., was something entirely new in Canada, and forms a new epoch iu the history of the "Provinces." A sumptuous repnst was served up, and some si* or seven hundred persons partook of it. Toasts were drunk, opening with "The day we celebrate," followed by others to the "Queen," "Governor General of Canada" and "The President of the I'nited States," aU of whieh were resjamded to by speeches. pyr* " Ah, John, you won't have me fameh longer. 1 shall never leave this bed alive."

A day or two since I went to the Foundling Hospital, and there found a largo number of females making bandages, and oth ers scraping lint for the soldiers that are wound* ed. I saw a letter from a surgeon at Sebasto Ei>l. saying that the battUof the night before ad added sixteen hundred to their wounded. Day before yesterday I went down to Crons tadt on board a steamer that took a large par ty in a pleasure excursion to see the allied Seat, which lies about five miles from the forts. We sailed all around the forts and tha men of war, which are placed ta defend tha town. I was told that tnere ware a hundred thousand men on board tha skips and in tha forts. The scene was highly exciting As ws swept overtfee water, the band played stirring national airs, and the multitude on board burst forth in repeated cheers to the forts and ships, which were echoed back in loud hurrahs frem the sailors on the ships, and the soldiers in tha forts, while in the distance we oould distinctly see the allies taking down their snars and top masts. preparing for battle. As I was gacing at the magnificent array, an old gentleman standing by me. who could speak English, said, with much feeling. ''What a scene' Hera wa are on a pleasure party, sailing ever the water that must soon be red with so much blood. 1 cannot enjoy it." (* An attack is new hourly expected I kave made arrangements to go at once to a hill about three miles from the scene of action, where I can sec every shot that is fired I do not want an attack to take place, but if there is to be one. I want to see it I will write you a full account of it as soon as possible. My own opinion is that the Allies will be beaten, but it may be because 1 want to have them, or because I am not a good judge of the mat ter. How long I shall bo detained here 1 can not tell.

M tny of her relatives were loyalists; and she w^a playfully called among them " the black-eyed rebel." She was accustomed to assist several women whoae husbands were in the American army, to procure intelligence. Tho despatches were usually sent from their friend? by a boy, who canied them stitched in the hark of bis coat. He came into the city bringing provis ions to market. One morning, when there wm some reason to fear he was suspected, and his movements watched by the enemy. M iry un dertook to get the papers in safety from him. She wont, as usual, to the market, and in a pretended game of roups, threw her shawl over the boy's head, and thus secured tha prise. She hastened with the papers to her anxious friends, who read them t>y stealth, after the windows had been carefully closed. When the news came of Burgoyne's surrender, and the whig women were secretly rejoicing, the sprightly girl, not daring to give vent openly to her exultation, put her head up tha chimney and gave a shout for Gates.

Learn its connections, as far as possible, with all other things. 4 Be lieve that to know every thing of something, is better than to something of every thing. Shameful Acccsatiok Aqaixst a Fish ? A Scottish paper tells us that a Mr. Boothby caught five clean salmon in theTay. What is meant by cleah i-almon? Aint they always clean ? Had these particular fish been soaped and scrubbing-brushed i or had their silrery scales been plate-powdered ? We have heard of salmon being dirt cheap, but that, wa be lieve, is the only accusation of uncleanlinexs that can be brought against this highly re spectable fish. A very important discovery has just been made by a M. Petit, of Lyons, of a means of impregnating silk by a chemical process, with gold, silver, brass, or iron, so that it can be woven with perfect flexibility, and thus form, as it were, stuffs of those metals The invention has been secured by patent, and will be worked by a company of capitalists. Per mission has been given to place a specimen in the Universal Exhibition It is said that the price of this new material will not be high.
