By Oral traditions transmitted from which came Down from heaven Quot arid of that Quot confusion of tongues Quot which fell upon Tho descendants of Noah in the Plains of Shinar. If the scriptural account of the deluge and the saving of Noah and his family be Only a Quot delusive fable Quot at what time and under what circumstance it May to asked could such a fable have been imposed upon the world for a fact and with such impressive Force that it should be universally credited As True and transmitted in Many languages through different nations and successive Ages by Oral tradition alone those who can tolerate the sup position of such uni venal credulity have no alternative but to reject the evidence derived from All human experience and against a world of testimony weighing against them to oppose merely the assertion of infidel a american history.

Of their traditions a ome having obvious reference to events recorded in scripture history Are exceedingly interesting and important and their Stuver sanity through out the entire continent is conclusive proof that their origin is not wholly fabulous. Thus the wide spread Algonquin tribes pro served a tradition of the original creation of the Earth from water and of a subsequent general inundation. The Iroquois tribes likewise had a tradition of a general deluge but from which they us Posod that no person escaped and that in order to re people Tho Earth beasts Vivere changed into men. One tribe held the tradition not Only of the deluge but also of an age of fire which destroyed every human being except one Man and one Omati it who were saved in a Cavern. Tho Tain emacs a nation in the to Rivern part of South America say that their progenitor Madli Cimity arrived in their country in a bark Canoe at the time of a great deluge which is called the age of water. This tradition with some modifications was current among Many tribes and Tho name of amal Ivica was found spread Over a Region of More than forty thousand Square Miles a Iare.

Both Herculaneum and Pompeii have Ever since been in process of Dis interment and the ii Ost of the moveable relics of Antiquity that have few and far Between. It was no singular thing for our grandmothers to have three or four husbands in the course of their lives. Now it is the reverse.

The Hunter though rarely has been set upon by robbers for the Sake of Tho pack of furs he is carrying on his Back to some of the seaport towns on the coast to dispose of but As the fur Hunters Are generally on foot and from habit of watching about for hostile indians or wild animals they Are always on their guard and As the robbers Well know that they Are to a Man rid omon who Seldom miss their Mark they avoid them. During my rambles in the Willt is and fastness of California i to came , in nod with Many of them some from old settlements of Iho United states other from Canada. 1 have hunted for months with them and witnessed some conflicts Between them and wild animals in which the utmost daring and recklessness was exhibited by Tho these Are not Tho men that robbers like to encounter but i have said they sometimes tide a fancy to Tho valuable packs of furs which if Isem Rrt due to parents.

It is the very Climax of cruelty not Only Are the Young Apt to forget the re to plunder those poor Fellows of packs which i sped due to parents but often times we see Chil wore procured Only by outlying for months Dren of older growth forgetting those who have in Tho Depths of Tho Forest and wilds of the reared them from infancy and by their wayward i country and not us Fri i Muly in the Hunting Ness causing their parents to shed tears when it grounds of a tribe of hostile indians should be their duty to give them reason for Joy. With the log and fired each a pistol shot at Tho Hunter which he escaped by dodging behind a tree close to from which he fired with effect As Only one robber was left he wheeled round his horse with the intention of Gallopp jag off when the pistol bullets of the Rne chant she the horse Hom under him. Quot Well done my i chant Quot said the Hunter Quot you be stopped that fellow s As soon As the robber could disentangle himself from Tho fallen horse to took to his heels and ran Down a Long sly Ping ground As fast As he could.

Asho was More of an equestrian than a pedestrian the Nimb chess of shortened the distance Between them and the last of the robbers fell. Thus perished this dangerous gang if six by the single hand of this Brave h a Mer and As the Quot comme Cianto Quot informed me he acted As deliberately As if he we re shooting tame Bollocks for the Market. The Ait air. Was Rathe if advantageous to the Hunter for on searching the Saddle bags and pockets of the robbers he pulled Forth some doubloons Ait a few dollars with other valuables they had no doubt a Short time previously taken from some traveller the Saddle bags arms and of the four White men were picked up and made fast on the saddles of the two horses the Hunter mounted a third the merchant another Hie horse being shot and thus they left the Sceno of action Tho bodies of the robbers to the wolves who wore howling about them and entered St. Francisco in Trier Mph Coulter it i truths.

A perfect Mirror reflects nothing but Bright and pure a 8inile. Which will you do smile and make others Happy or be crabbed and make every one around miserable you can live among Beautiful Flowers and singing Birds or in the mire surrounded with logs and Liros. The amount of Happie Tife you can produce is incalculable if you show a smiling face a kind heart and speak pleasant words. On the other hand by your Cross words and fretful uis position you make scores and hundreds wretched Arnost beyond endurance. Which will you do Wear a pleasant countenance let Joy beam in your eyes and love grow on your forehead. There is of Joy so great As that which Springs from a kind act or pleasant deed and you May feel it at night when you rest at morning when you Fise and through All Tho Day when about your business.

To behold Tho unlettered tribes of a Vust continent who Havo lost All knowledge of their origin or migration hither preserving with remarkable distinctness the apparent tradition of certain events which the inspired Penman tolls us happened in the Early Ages of Tho world s history.
