Still Squanto remained the faithful Friend of the Whites and kept the tribe around him in a peaceful Altitude till Tho cruel unprovoked Ugur Sion upon his Domestic happiness roused him to vengeance. On a summer Day 1075, Lind Oyah. The Squaw of Squanto. Paddled her Light Birch Canoe upon the Bright Waters of the Saco. Llor infant but a few months old was sleep ing on soft skins Oil the Bottom of the Canoe while u slight screen of Green boughs arched Over it sheltered it from the Wurm rays of the Sun. It breathed sweetly in the open pure air of heaven and gently rolled to the slight rocking of Tho Canoe us the careful puddle of Tho Mother with regular motion touched Tho water.

At that instant Lim Loyah who had heard the sound of their voices came with a shriek Rushing Down the Bank her eyes wild with terror Hei Long hair streaming in the wind and sprang eagerly toward the water. Jim j caught her by Tho Arm and held her with great coolness determined to take sufficient time to give his Experiment a fair trial. Lido Yah shrieked and struggled and pressed toward the water but the Iliou grip of the Sailor held her fast. I he infant rested for a moment with it face in the water Ami the with a few con Vuu Ive movements of limit it began to sink. Hut it was not till in had disappeared under the surface thai Jim released his hold on the Arm of . The frantic Mother Lea soon away Down to her Cousin Allen s and we have not Hoard of her the residence of Allen we one of Tho most Remote in the settlement and squad do knew that some of the Moat Remote families had not cot into the fort for Bia men had brought in several Salpa Ami to id him that the pie ump Ostand Cason indians had carried away a number of Pris Onera. Squardo spoke not a word motioning for two of Bis warriors to follow he slatted at full Speed for Allen s opening. When they Hal reached the spot the smouldering ruins of the House still sent up a sickly smoke that at once convinced Squanto thai human flesh Wii burning. He Oast eneu to Caruti Nize Ibe embers. There was one Skeleton and but one still broiling in the ashes. The flesh qua nearly consumed and us experienced Eye of Squanto told him the Bones were too urge for the Maiden he was seeking. They were probably the Bone of or. Allen who might Hare been killed Anil scalped in the Onset and perhaps his wife Phil her Cousin Elizabeth had deep carried away captive. Squill do Mou found the Trail of the pre sum Scot War ii is and followed them the much the Woods. After a rapid journey of my or seven Miles on ascend in a Small Hill hedis Coverett them in the Valley before him where they had made a halt to rest and refresh themselves and rejoice Over Tho a achievements of the night. They had made a Larye fire of Brush and and were a Ancius round it and singing a wild sonic which Squanto at once Reo Ogni sed As the usual song preceding the uttering of a human sacrifice to the s Mil of Are and he knew that a captive was about to be committed to the flames. He rushed Down the Bill like a leaping torrent and dashed into the Circle of warriors. A captive was lying before him Pound hand and foot and two Stout warriors were just laying hands on her to cast her into the Lames. The first Ularce told Squanto the captive Wax the Maiden he sought. He sprang Between her and the fire and raising his Tomahawk commanded the warriors to Stop. They supposing it to be ome Sulden spiritual movement of squad do released their hold. He lit the bands that bound her raised her to her feel and conducted Hei Back to her father s dwelling. It Only remains in be added Here thai Squanto continued the inveterate enemy of the whiles till a general peace was effected with the tribes. The new whale fishery. We published some week s Cinco an Arti Cle relating to the discovery of a now fish ing ground for whales in the Arctic regions. To sub join from the Providence journal Somo additional fact which Are gathered from a London paper of late Date received by the last arrival at new York it appears that the whale men Somo years ago earned from the Esqui Maux with whom they had held Intercourse that Large num Bers of whales resorted to certain inlets and Bays in Davis s Straits and Baffin s buy where they remained during the Winter Lor shelter. This information suggested to Captain Ponny Ono of the officers who h is distinguished himself in the search for sir John Franklin the idea of fitting out Par ties to Winter in the Polar regions near Tho place where the whales resorted to be ure As Many As possible in the full and Spring and to boil the Oil out during Tho Winter two vessels were accordingly prepared for the purpose with Iron tanks fitted to them and to arranged that the Oil when boiled could be conveyor by utta Perch and oth. Or pipes to every Taok in the hold. Boilers and a Supply of Coul for boiling the Oil on land when in Winter quarters a re also taken As Well As a plentiful Supply of Provis ions und the neck usury comforts Tor Tho Long Arctic Winter. Iwo tips my a quipped Anu manned with thirty to Rico men und three boys sailed my Aberdeen on the 13th August 1853, and reached Tho fishing Anund in Baffin s Bay on the 17th of september where they found an abundance of whales ten of whom they killed and secured More Tho 1st of no pc tuber. They then went into Winter guar ters in Hogarth s sound erected their boil ing House and set to work to boil their Oil. In this work they were assisted by fifty is Quinaux engaged Tor the purpose. Their efforts were entirely successful not withstanding the cold was 40 degrees mow Zero. The Active duties of the Moo tended to preserve their health and Nono Felt time to Kiang heavily. But singular As it May seem that dreadful Scourge the cholera broke out among Tho Esqui Maux and swept off Many while the Crow escaped with slight premonitory symptoms. Early in Tho following Spring Tho present year the fishery is resumed with great Success although the Edge of the Ioe was Twenty Miles from Tho ships. Seventeen More whales were killed Anil after being Cut up Wero transported by the Esqui Maux on sledges drawn of dogs Over the ice to the ship where Tho Oil wus boiled As before. One ship was on filled with boiled Oil and whalebone when Captain Penny sailed for Aberdeen leaving the other ship to Continuo the fishing and boiling. The Captain is of opinion that with a Large commercial company the fishery could be prosecuted along an extensive moist line and with great advantage. Two american ships Hud anticipated the English expedition Gnu Hud been equally successful. No truces of sir John were found. Deer und other wild in finals abounded. Captain Penny still holds to the belief in common with Many scientific men of England that fur ther North there is a Milder climate und a Polar Basin yet to to discovered und Khoee who cling to the Hope that sir John Frank Lin and his Crews still survive believe him to be within the open sea or Polar Basin to furred to.

We learn from a gentle Man from Montreal that the gang arrested Are to have their trial there on the 15th of this Mouth. Among the number is True f. Young who several years since was in custody in this City on a similar charge. There is also one of the Bonny family a old Man of sixty named heard possessed of considerable wealth whose daughters signed the Bills also three men named Bowers Wilson and Gleason the latter a excellent engraver. The spoil obtained from them is probably the most extensive Ever secured in the United slates. There were no lets than forty seven Bank plates nearly All for counterfeits on Banks in the United staler. At this time of the arrest of these counterfeiters an attempt was made bythe Allicer and his posse to arrest a Man named Phelps charged with a number of daring Bank for Geries. Phelps got the alarm and stationed himself in an upper room to which there was but a narrow passage Way. He was armed with two double barrelled guns two revolvers a Bowie Knite and a Slung shot and kept the officers at Bay for six hours when he was finally arrested but on his Way to prison in the custody of three men he made his escape and a not since been seen. Sheriff Clark arrested at Portland a Day or two since a Man named Dunn who has been sentenced to fourteen years imprison ment for counterfeiting but who managed the break jail and escape.
