On the train the oilier day were a very, confiding old mai^and a very innocent old lady. Theyfliad passed away five sixths of their ii^es hidden awa** behind the hills of Veimonfc, and were going to western Michigan on a visit to their son. After a fttle skirmishing round, the old gcntlenjsn pitched into me about the “ crops/^sile,” t I found how innocediShe was, him all the informati^jil could. All at once, as he rode alotftofthe wife caught his arm and exclaimed^
“Look out. Samuel,^ you’ll be forgetting that place wh<Gfe they fit.”
The old man expiated, He said that a young man that cau^ggdown from Canada with them, told pm to look. out for the battlefield of Staddock’s defeat as soon as lie left Deficit.
I was going to repl/ihat the young man was an infernal Ijpr, but. the old lady seemed to have jet her heart on seeing the spot, aud tS| old man was so anxious, that I oould«|t bear to disappoint them. When got down into the woods I pointed outlie “battle field/' and they put their he^g out of the window and took in the ^ue.
“Think of it, Hanp||,” exclaimed the old mac, as he drew iujis head; “think of them Injuns crecj&ig through them woods and shooting Mf. Braddock down dead!” T
“My soul!” replied the old lady, seemingly overcome a^fhe idea, and she kept her eyes on th#broods until

“That’s—yes—that’s the spot!” I said as we came to a dark piece of woods.
“Think of that, Hanner!” he said, his head out of the window : “think of them babies being found in there !”
“Yes, it was tearful!” she replied; “seems as if I could almost see them stubbing about in there now J”
There was another historic spot of which the yoijig man had told them, but they had forgotten it, and I was never more thankful. They kept quiet until thej brakesman yelled out “Lansing,” and then the old roan bobbed up and exclaimed:
“Lansing—Laosing— why, heres where they hung Tom Collins, ain’t it ?”
Ile explained that Tom Collins, a Chicago desperado had murdered eleven old women and drank their blood for his liver complaint, and after being hunted for miles aud miles, had at length been captured at Lansing, cut to pieces by the infuriated populace, and then left hanging to a tree.
I had to point out the tree. It was a tree near the depot, and the tail of a kite had lodged in its branches.
“There’s whar’ they hung him, Han-ner ! said tha old man, stretching his neck.
“And there’s some of his shirt left yet! exclaimed tho old lady, and as I jacked out of the oar the good o|d man was remarking that he was going to the train boy if he didn’thave$he"pam->hlet “Life of Tom CoHins^scthat he could get ’further pardouUrs.—i^rod Free Press, .. * >: I

The old gentleman said he had a particular interest in seeing the spot, because he knew the man that killed Tecumseh—used to live right by him;
