Thew In probably no single incident in the i whole rang* of American history which has been ??> often repeated, or whieh is so familiar every one, as the story of Captain Suiith and Pocahontas. Thorooghly iinbued with the ro mance of which the Elixabethan period was so replete, it had furnished a subject for the easel of the artist, the pen of the poet, and the page of history, until it hv becomo almost common , plaof. l"h? life of Smith, from its opening to its close, was a continuous romance, and it J# probable tliat had Pocahontas magnanimity been exhibited in behalf of one of Smith s men | in place of him3elf, her name would never have j filled the niche it now occupies. This deduc- ; tion is drawn from the fact that a similar inci dent. of more recent date, in which, however, the hero was but a private soldier, had only a 1 local reputation, and will probably be new to most of our readers. It furnishes the material for a lengthy romance, equal in point of inter- I est to any of Cooper's or Irving's, and it is pomcwhat surprising that it ha* not been used But to the story. It seems that at the famous defeat and rout of St. Clair's army, there were two young men. belonging to the militia regiment whieh sustain ed the first shock of battle, named Howard and Fit* Gibbon. They were both wounded on the retreat of the regiment to the main bodv. How ard had received a ball on the instep. wfiich had disabled him from running, and ritx Gibbon had been struck by a tomahawk, which, al though it did not seriously injure him, yet had | the effect to stun him. and when he recovered his senses, he found himself bound and a pris oner with manv others, among whom was How ard. In this situation, they were compelled to bo eye-witnesses of the orgies of the savages on their return from the pursuit of the retreating armv. and they could readily imagine the hor rid late to which they had been reserved. They had been captured by the warriors of the Mis sauga tribe, and whe'n the battle was over and the Indians returned to their horses, they were taken to their village, where they were obliged to pass the ordeal ot running the gauntlet, and received the brutal treatment usual upon such occasions They were then conducted to a cab in adjoining theoouncil bouse, where they were left to darkness and their own sad forebodings ITie council met on the eve of their return to deliberate upon the fate of their captives, and the decision was unanimous that they must die at the stake The tribe had lost many braves, whoso spirits could not enter the happy hunting grounds unless accompanied by the ghosts of white men. slain to avenge them, and when Sish-te-yong-tah. their chief. asked?" What say the Missauga braves; shall the white man die?*' There was an universal ugh! and their fate was sealed. On the following morning preparations were made to carry out the decision of the Couneil, and. at an early hour, the entire population of the w>wn might be seen coming froin all direc tions, and centering about the toot of a gigantic pin-oak. which had been cleared of its lower branches, and otherwise prepared for the part : it was to perform in the coming ceremony. I There were old men and maidens, young men and matronly squaws, incipient warriors in | their gaudy paint, and old men with whitened locks and tottering limbs, all gathering about the fatal tree to take part in the sacrifice to the manes of their friends. At length the prison- i ers were brought forth?two sturdy, brave and fearless youth, whose span of life had not { reached tweuty summers. They were pre pared for death by being stripped of all their clothing except a cloth about their loins, and were conducted by-iwo warriors, while others formed a circle about them, with arms in their j hands, ready to strike them down in case of an ! attempt to escape 1 As they entered the circlc which surrounded the tree the human wall closed in and shut off every chance and hope of flight or rescue, and the victims looked around upon that assemb lage in vain to discover the least spark of feel ing or sympathy for their fate. Howard was the first selected for the ordeal. Feeling that no effort of his own could save his life, and that the only way to shorten his own suffering was to submit in silence to his fate, be allowed no sign to escape him, no useless pleading in vain repining to add to his enemies' triumph; but with a stoicism which would have done credit V? an older and more experienced warrior, he rermitted the savages to bind him with his ack to the fatal tree. His arms were drawn behind him. a thong passed around them at the ?lbow, and tied eecurely. while his foot were fattened in such a manner to the roots as to pre vent all power of motion except to his head; this was left free. When thus prepared, the ??porta commenced bv the young men. who, i fuiu imz at a little distance, made a mark of j his head, at which they threw their tomahawks, | endeavoring to see how near it they could strike ? without hitting it, with the object of intimidat ing their victim, and wringing from his tortured spirit some evidence of fear or cowardice. Not a muscle quivered, however, under this severe test of his courage, and then came the old Mjuaws, who stuck his flesh full of splinters, gwu-bed him with knives, and adopted every diabdical devioe which their ingenuity could invent to torture without killing him; and finally, to close the scene, several Indians ap proached with flaming brands to light the fune ral pile. Already had the greedy flames caught the i dry taggots which surrounded the victim, and were curling upward in serpentine wreaths, j when n light aua graceful form was seen to dart from the circle ol" dusky figures, throw itself, upon the burning heap, and encircle within its , arm* the neck ot the young man. Iwae Oo-na j letah. the darling swter of the chief. Struck with ?yuipathy for the suffering- she had wit- J nr-v?~i, auj horrified at the inhumanity exhibit ed by tboee about her, she nobly determined j to save the prisoners or perish herself. The chief, astonished at this unexpected interposi* ' tiou. and horror stricken at the dangerous situ- j ation of his sister, was for the moment power- t less; the next, he was dashing the faggots right anl left, extinguishing the dames which had caught her robes in their greedy embrace, and endeavoring to tear her from her hold?but in vain Iu the moat pathetic tone, she begged ? the life of the pale-faced youth. She plead with her brother for his sympathy ; she expostulated i and appealed to the warriors who surrounded her to spare the victims as they would be S|*ared. .is well might she appeal to the stern rock. I or the tpark-giving steel, and it was n_tt until , she ha 1 oflered her entire wealth of furs and a I sum of money, that she induced them to forego their savage purpose and free the prisoners trotn their impending fate. They were not allowed their liberty even then, but were *d 'pted into the families of those who had lost I their relatives, and remained iu captivity uutil the treaty of Greenville freed all prisoners in the hands of the Indians. The act is not the less worthy of praise, however, and her name should be ranked with the brightest on history's pAge, and associated with Pocahoutaa aiid others, whose deeds have proved that the fines*, feeling* of woman s nature are sometimes louud *ej.>a|e the wild as well as in the heaits of cities. tm* *** ?The New York Mirror u imA i-' >'?ung. healthy, handsome widow udwho waTuV4** 40 lncume of a year, rlzr, t Bl*rr> * ""n who has not the K *1 L*. !? u" Hut her late iu;^: Tii'T Atilon 11 ??>*? not end w.th hi* l.f., i?n a wirk-d will giving all his should Wt d a second hu*l,ai??t \Ve undermtand that the victim of this outrawe has offered ?lu.(wu a year out of her lneom- of ?!S,W*> to havt. tht. cruel condition cancelled, but the partv to whnm the property would revert is in-Wble And this is by no Bieans a solitary ease of the wrongs ?ud cruelties perpetrated and perpetuated bv tl.t diabolical wills of the dead.

This first poein, written at the age of fifteen and addressed to a lady, contained the foll<?wing floral and aerial allusions : "The flower in Its supernal bloom, The sobbing zephyr's kiss," kc., which the printer rendered : "The flour in its infernal bloom The sobbing zephyr's hiss," Ac., and in another place the line? "As thy form before me sleeping," I was given? "As thy form before me skeetlng." I This cured him of the cat. serib., as he then j thought, forever. But. a few months afterwards, i the poetical impulse got the better of reason, and rashly ventured another effusion in the form of a melody, or ranzonefte or chansonetu, addressed to the same fair object, through the same literary rhannel. The song commenced in the rnanu script touchingly, as follows : ?'TO C '?List to the mellow vesper bell, Softly floating o'er the deli. List, list to the sunset knell. As tbe silvan accents float, Catch and cherish every note?" Ac., Itc, His blood ran cold the next morning, when he went down to the otfice. and. receiving the paper from tbe press, opened it on the steps, and n t down to read his first literary step toward immor tality. It commenced thus ; "TO cz ! * 1 ! ??List to the bellow vesper bull, Softly floating oar the dell, List, jist. to the sunset hell As the sylvan accents float Cats and cherries every note." Ac., Ac. For one year thereafter be did not touch pen to paperHe continues: "Time, however, will wear away sorrows, as well as marble, and at the age of seventeen, cir cumstances, and my newly choeen profession, found me at sea 1 was cruising in the Gulf of Mexico, and the beautiful climate of the tropics, in winter, will bring two things out of a man, if he has them in him, viz: bile and poetry, it had that effect upon myself, and the result was, blue mass and another poetical attempt. "I was still, as I ever have been, constant to my j first love, and in a long rhapsodical poem, ad dressed, one moonlight night, to Charity, the fol- . lowing verse occurs: | "All sleep :?sleepsailo-,?ladie, sleep ! There's one that slumbers not : Tho' shine the stars?tho' hushed the deep? There's one who sits alone to weep? - To weep and be forgot." ??In due time I received the Herald, with my effort in a conspicuous spaoe; the above verse read in print: "All sheep?deep sellar?ladie peep? There's one that sloblters not.? Tho shins the stairs, toe huskd the peed, There sore who sips a bone to woop, Tow eeq A bo fosgod." ??That did the 10b for me. From that day to this the muses and myself have not been on speak ing terms. ? Can you Wonder, then, that I am a little sen sitive on the subject ?" ??Since that fetal day 1 have confined myself to plain prose,; but even there I have been the prin ter's victim. In an oration delivered before the alumni of a college. 1 employed the beautiful F rench quotation: "La 6c an re joss vertu est un fi'.ur sans par 1 /em."

The following letter from Sir John Franklin Is j believed to be the last received from his pen. It [ Is dated Whale Fish Island. Bay of Disco, 11th July. 1845, and it is believed was never published before in America: "My dear sister: * * The appearance, dress, and manners of the Esquimaux, bespeak that care is taken of thein bv the government Several of them can read the Bible with ease, and I am told that when the families are all collected the children are obliged to attend school daily.
