In the year 1097, a body of indians attacked to e town of Haverhill Massachusetts killed and carried into Captivity forty inhabitants. A party of the indians approached the House of an individual who was abroad at Lobor but who on their approach hastened to the House sent children out and ordered them to ily in a course opposite to that in which danger was approaching. He then mounted horse and determined to snatch up the child with Avrich he was unwilling to part when he should overtake the Little flock. When he came up to them about two Hundred Yards from House he was unable to make a Choice or to leave any one of the number. He therefore determined to take lot with them and defend Vliem from their murderers or die by their Side. A i Ody of the indians pursued and came up with and Little company. He returned the fire and. Retreated alternately still however keeping a Resolute face to the enemy and so effectually sheltered charge that he finally lodged them All Safe in a Distant House. Now Fly As flies the Rushing wind urge urge thy lagging Steed the Savage yell is fierce behind and life is on thy Speed. And from those dear ones make thy choices the group he wildly eyed when Quot father Quot burst from every voice and Quot child Quot heart replied. There s one that now can share Liis toil and one he meant for Fame and one that wears her Mother s smile and one that bears name. And one will prattle on knee or slumber on breast and one whose jobs of infancy. Are still by smiles expressed. They feel no fear while he is near hell shield them from the foe but of ear must thrill to hear their shrieking should he go. In vain quivering lips would speak no words thoughts allow there s burning tears upon Cheek death s Marble on brow. And twice he smote clenched hand then bade children Fly and turn a and even that Savage band cower d at wrathful Eye. Swift As the lightning Wing d with death Flash d Forth the quivering flame their fiercest Warrior bows beneath the father s deadly aim. Not the wild cries that rend the skies heart or purpose move he saves children or he Dies the sacrifice of love. Ambition goads the conqueror on hate Points the murderer s Brand but love and duty these alone can nerve the Good Man s hand. The hero May resign tie Field the Coward murderer flee he cannot fear he will not yield that strikes Sweet love for thee. They come they come he heeds no cry. Save the soft childlike Wail Quot of father save Quot Quot my children Fly Quot were mingled on the Gale. And firmer till he Drew breath. And sterner flashed Eye. As fast he hurls the Leaden death still shouting Quot children Fly Quot no Shadiow on brow appear a nor tremor Shook Frame. Save when at intervals he heard some trembler Lisp name. In vain the foe those fiends unchained like Amish d tigers chafe the sheltering roof is near a is gain Dall All the dear ones Safe propolis the most Central part will naturally be near the scene of action. He is accordingly set Down at Gadsby a and at a Price that would startle an English Nobleman he engages a Pigeon Hole in the 7th heaven of that boundless caravan seria. Even at Gadsby a however he finds himself Over half a mile from the Capitol and wonders for two or three Days Why the Deuce the hotel was not built on some of the waste lots at the foot of Capitol Hill an improvement which might have saved in Rainy m eat Liebat least five dollars a Day in Hack hire. Meantime the secretaries and foreign ministers leave their cards and the party and dinner giving people Shower upon the Quot Small rain Quot of Pink billets. He sets apart the third or fourth Day to return their Calls and inquires the addresses of friends Wlinich they never write on to Weir cards because if they did it would be no guide and is told it is impossible to direct hut tic Hall ency Raen i sought. Session. We Are hum bugged one Way and another by travellers lies. I have heard the observation once or twice from strangers since i have been Liere and it struck myself on my first arrival that i had never seen within the same limit before so Many of what May be Quot men of you will scarce meet a gentleman of the Side walk in Washington who would not attract your notice seen elsewhere As an individual possessing in Eye or general features a certain having seen most of the celebrated speakers of the Senate i busied myself for the first Day or two in examining the faces that passed me in the Street in the Lope of knowing them by tiie outward stamp which we ate Apt to suppose belongs to greatness. I gave it Uji at last simply from the great number i met who uni gift be fur All that features Hud to do m Ith it the remarkable Coachmen All know he Calls the least be Rocini looking of the most bullying and ragged Seton Tat verde Nealions he has Ever seen and delivers himself and visiting list into hands. The first thing is a straight drive two Miles away from the Capitol. He pusses tic president s House and getting of the smooth Road begins to dive and drag through Cross lanes and open lots Laid out there is a very simple reason Why a Congress of the Chi incl ski ate Sli uld to they contain by Are a much More marked body of men than the English House of commons or lords or the Clia Berof Peers or deputies in France. I refer to the Mere Means by which in i flier Case they come by to Weir honors. In England and France and Peers Are legislators by he according to no plan that Loose of Geotsi red itary right and the Maui lairs of the commons etry can comprehend Ami finds friends living and deputies from the Possession of extensive in houses that wait nothing of being in the coun property re family influence or some other cause try but Trees gardens and fences. It As if i arguing ii most cases no great personal Talent in it had rained naked Brick upon a waste j the individual. They Are legislators but Thev Plain and each occupant had made a Street with 1 Are Devred very often much More a heartily to reference to own front i ii much Sha a other pursuits Hunting or i Anning racing drive Ken and More astonished victim consumes i ing and similar out of door passions common to morning and temper and has made by dinner time but out of forty Calls All imperatively due and All scattered far and wide with the same Loose and irreconcilable Georgai in. A fortnight s experience satisfies tie stranger that this same journey is worse at night than in the morning and that As he leaves dinner Engliski gentlemen or Tinord or the corresponding penchant of French Peers and deputies. It is Only the Law great leaders and orators Wio devote these Lvov to exclusively. Wii ii us every one knows it is quite contrary. An a Nie Rickii a dietician delivers himself body and soul to pundit. He never Fleps cats walks or be just and had carried Point. He had come to Washington to receive a great Deal of Money from the Sale of the lands of the tribe and the distribution of it Lay entirely in Power. Only one old Warrior had ventured to Rise in Council and object to measures but when White Cloud spoke he dropped head on bosom and submitted. This information and that which followed was Given in English of which neither of the Yoways understood a word. Or. Power expressed a Surprise that the Sioux killer should have known in citizen s dress. I lie interpreter translated it and the Indian said in answer Quot the dress is very different but when i see a Man s Eye i know he Tsien told Power that he wished in the theater to raise War cry and help fight the Thiee bad Loo icing men who were Iii enemies referring to the three bailiffs in a scene in Pady Carey Power asked Liat part of the play he liked Best lie said Liat part w Liere he Seizel the girl in arms and ran of Quot the stage Villi her at the close of an Irish Jig in tie same play tie interpreter informed us that this was the first time the Sioux killer had come among the a Hites. To had disliked them always till now but he said he had seen enough to keep telling tales All the rest of life. Pover of Ureil them cigars which they refused. Vve expressed our Surprise and the Sioux killer said Ali attire indians who smoked gave out soonest in the Chase and Wiite Cloud added very gravely that the Young women of tribe did not like the breath of the smokers. In answer to an inquiry i made about the compar Auve size of indians and ave site men the chief said that the old men of tie Whites were larger than old indians but the Young Whites were not so tall and straight As the youths of tribe. We were struck with the Small Ness of the chief s viands and feet but he seemed very much mortified when tie interpreter translated our remark to . He turned the Little Sallow a tigers Over and Over Aud said Liat which he pays for at Home runs the risk of dreams bit in subset Vicnete to aim. He Civ while Cloud father who had been neck passes an hour or two on the Road and ruins himself in Hack hire it must be a very yes a very pleasant dinner party to compensate . Consequently he either sends a Quot a. P. to All acquaintances and lives i cog or Wlinich is a More sensible thing moves up to the other settlement and Abandons the Capitol. Those who live on the other Side of the president s House Are the secretaries Diplomatist and a few wealthy citizens. J Here is no hotel in this Quarter but there Are one or two boarding houses and what we have been Lucky enough to secure ourselves furnished lodgings in which we have every thing but Board. Your dinner is sent you from Quot a French Cook s near by and your servant gets your breakfast a plan which gives you the advantage of dining at your own hour choosing your own society and of having covers for a Friend or two whenever it suits your humor and at half an hour s warning. There Are very few of these lodgings which Combine Many other advantages Over a boarding House but More of them would be a Good speculation to House owners and i wish it were suggested not Only Here but in every City in our country. Aside from society the Only amusement in Washington is frequenting the Capitol. If one has a peat Deal of patience and nothing better to do this is very Well and it is very Well at any rate till one becomes acquainted with the Heads of the celebrated men in both the Chambers with the Noble architecture of the building and the routine of business this done it is time wearily spent for a Spectator. The finer orators Seldom speak or Seldom speak warmly the floor of Tenet occupied by nosing and very sensible gentlemen whose excellent ideas enter the mind More agreeably by the Eye than the ear or in other words Are better delivered by tiie newspapers and there is a great Deal of Formilia and Eli Noti Cal sparring which is not even ii tin Iain ing to the members and which consumes time Quot on now and then the so mate adjourns some of the Groat orators has to in the floor and you Are sure of a great Ellbert the next morning. If you Are there in Lime and can sit like Atlas not ail Brito have another passion of and kind till he a j leached the Point of ambition and then it has become a mordent necessity from habit. The consequence is that no Man can be found in a elevated sphere in our country who has not had occasion for More than Ordinary Talent to arrive there. He inherited nothing of distinction Aid has made himself. Such ordeals leave their Narks and they who have thought and watched and struggled and contended with tie passions of men As an american politician inevitably must cannot Well escape the traces of such work. It usually elevates the character of the face it always strongly Marks it. Apr pos of Quot men of rank Quot the dress Circle of the Treater at Powers Benefit not Long since was graced by three indians in full costume the chief of the , the chief of the Yoways and a celebrated Warrior of the latter tribe called the Sioux killer. The Fox is an old Man of apparently fifty with a heavy aquiline nose a treacherous Eye Sharp As an eagles and a rather Small in proportion to head and features. He was dressed in a Bright Scarlet Blanket and a Crown of feathers with an Eagle s plume standing erect on the top of head All dyed in the same deep Hue. His face was painted to match except lips which looked of a most ghastly Sallow in contrast with fiery nose forehead and Cheeks. His Tomahawk Lay in tiie hollow of Arm decked Widi feathers of the same Brilliant color with the rest of drapery. Next sat the Sioux killer in a Dingy Blanket with a Crown made Ofa Gie taquan Tity of the foal hers of a pea Hen which fell Over face and concealed Fea Luros almost entirely.

Li- fact was the least Aury Large from the new York Mirror. Washington in the session. By n. P. Willis. There is a sagacity acquired by travel on the subject of forage and quarters which is useful in All other cities in the world where one May happen to be a stranger but which is As inapplicable to the emergencies of an arrival in Washington As Waltzing in a Shipwreck. It is a capital whose peculiarities Are As much Sui Gens is As those of Venice but As those who have become Wise by a season s experience neither remain on the spot to give warning nor have recorded their experience in a Book the stranger is worse Oil Quot in a coach in Washington than in a Gonzalo in the Quot City of Silver it is Well known i believe that when the future City of Washington was about being Laid out Luiere were two Large lot buyers or and owners living two Miles apart each of whom was interested in having the Public buildings upon the Centre of own Domain. Like children quarrelling for a sugar horse the subject of dispute was pulled in two and one got the head the other the Tail. The capital stands on a rising ground in solitary grandeur and the president s House and department buildings two Miles off one another. The City straddles and stretches Between cooing Best to look continuous and compact but the stranger soon sees that it is after All but a Quot City of magnificent distances Quot built to Pleaise nobody on Earth but a Lackney Coachman. The new Comdr when asked what hotel he will drive to thinks himself very Safe if he Quot chooses that nearest the Capitol supposing of course that Aii Washington is purely a legislative me with a world on your Back you May enjoy Al rout warlike of tii three and exr us a Trouil a seat and hear oratory unsurpassed in my Opi-1 lure and freed Jin from guile remarkable in an in Nion in the world. The society in Washington take it All in All is by Many degrees tiie Best in the United Stales. One is prepared though i cannot conceive Sliv for the contrary. We read in Hooks of travels and we Are told by every l Ody Liat the Sociol Here is promiscuous rough and even barbarous. This is an untrue or it has very much changed.

They showed great Good nature in allowing is to look at their ornaments tomahawks White Cloud wore a Collar of Bear s claws which marked for chief and the Sioux killer carried a great Cluster of brass Bells on the end of Tomahawk of which he explained the use very energetically. It was to shake when he stood Over Fillen enemy in tie fight to let the tribe know he had killed . After another Tumbler of Champaigne each they Rose to take their leave and White Cloud gave us hand gently with a Friendly nod. We were All amused however with the Sioux killer s More characteristic Adieu. He looked us in the Eye like a Hawk and gave us each a grip of Iron fist that made the blood Tingle under on nails. He would be an awkward customer in a fight or fixed lip and keen Eye very much belie . L com Soili Mirror. Tile Duil Ning ii Illola . A tale of the sea. I remember an occurrence connected wit i one of the voyages which i made across the Atlantic which exhibited by a fearful example How potent an ally the imagination May become to the conscience in persecution of the guilty. Late in the summer of 18�?, i happened to be in the Southern part of the United states when some Al airs of importance required my speedy appearance in Italy. The delay which would have occurred by coming to new York to embark and the inconvenience of travelling by land at that season induced me to engage a passage at once in a vessel which was about to sail i rom Charleston Laden Wilh Cotton for Marseilles i he a Iii was Cotna Fulcd l y a it. S., who was also the owner of tie cargo. Avit Hout any note worthy occurrence be had arrived within a few Siil of Llie coast of Spain when we i spoke a ship which had just come from Marseilles the vessels exchanged the latest a pors t f their countries and went on again in their a a Iov Cral courses. When the fran ii gaze los we a opened Vii thin our slip our Captain read with Delight that so Small was Llie 8up by of Coll ii in the Market and so Strong Liu demand fur it Itiat Llie next vessel which arrived Willi a i re Wirht of it i r it demand w o almost any Price Waluch the avarice of the owner should dictate i he wind whith had been for some Days setting a Bililc South was at this Lime getting round to the East and j to bring us without delay directly to tiie Mediterranean.

We wore sitting Over our Whie Licious Book maker would Ever sneer at the ex-1 when while Cloud ail tie Sio tix Killor came interiors or talk of the ill Breeding of such men As \ with their interpreter. There Scro several Gen form in great numbers the agreeably society of this place for a Man of great talents never could be vulgar and there is a superiority about most of these which raises them above the Petty Standard which regulates the outside of a coxcomb. Even compared with the dress and address of men of similar positions and pursuits in Europe however members of the House of commons for example or of the chamber of deputies in France it is positively the fact that the senators and representatives of the United states have a decided advantage. It is All very Well for or. Hamilton and other scribble s whose books must be spiced to go Down to ridicule a Washington Soiree for English readers but if the observation of one who had seen assemblies of legislators and Diplomatist in All tie countries of Europe May be fairly placed against and mrs. Trollope a 1 May assert upon my own authority that they will not find out of May fair in England so Well dressed and dignified body of men. I have seen As yet no specimen of the rough animal described by them and others As Tho Quot Western member Quot and if David Crockett whom i was never so fortunate As to see was of that description the race must have died with . It is a thing i have Learned since Lii ave been in Wai Hington to fed a wish that Foi signers should bc6 congr6 is in Tlemcen present one of them in the naval undress uniform whose fice Tho Sioux Killor Peru lionized very sharply. Thoy smiled in bowing to Power but made vory grave inclinations to the rest of us. I he chief took seat assuming a very erect and dignified attitude which to preserved immovable luring the interview Siut the Sioux killer Drew up , resting them on the round of the chair and with head and body Bent Forward seemed to forget himself and give undivided attention to the study of Power and naval Friend. Tumblers of Cha Nivaigne were Given them which i they drank with great relish though the Sioux killer provoked a Little ridicule from White Cloud by coughing As he swallowed it. The interpreter was a half Breed Between an Indian and a negro and a most intelligent fellow. He had been reared in the Fowaz tribe but had been among the Whites a great Deal for the last few years and had picked up English very fairly. He told us that White Cloud was the son of old White Cloud who died three years Sie and that the Young chief had acquired entire command Over the tribe a in mildness and dignity. He had paid the debts of the to Wilys to the Ira Dersi very much against the will of the tribe but he commenced by declaring firmly that he would we perceived trial in was a ship on fire. The Light increased every moment and the signal guns fell upon our oars Wilh distressing rapidity. The capitain was at this time pacing the deck As he had done almost constantly since the Intel Ignico had reached from the passing vessel for the restlessness of expectation scarcely allowed to repose for a moment. His Eye was directed resolutely to the North Antl though the Light now glared uns Hunnable and the frequent Shols could not be unheard and Tho commotion and exclamations of the passengers could not be unnoticed glance never fell upon Tho object which engrossed All others. After a few moments intense to Onder and excitement among the passengers and Crew at the silence of the Captain the Steersman called to and asked if he should not turn out to the distressed vessel but the other rudely ordered to attend to own concerns. A Little while after at the solicitation of the whole conv Pany inboard i went up to the said to that i deemed it Niy duty to inform that the Universal desire of Crew was that Relief should be Given to tie tii ring ship. He replied with agitation that the vessel could a Obei saved and that he should Only lose the wind and immedi lately went Dowie to the Cabin and i locked the door. He was a Kii id hearted irian nature and Ovi Ordinary occasions few would have taken greater tron la to Ben fit a . 774. But the Prospect of riches was too much for virtue the Hope of great gain devoured All the belter feelings of hi.? nature and made heart As hard As Stone. If Mother had shrieked from the flames i do not believe he would have turned from course. The Crew in this condition of things had nothing to do but lament the master s cruelty and submit to it. They watched the fiery mass conscious that a Large company of their Brethren was perishing within their sight who by their efforts might probably be saved. It was not for several hours that the Captain appeared again upon the deck and from appearance then i imagine that the conflict during Solitude must have been severe and trying. I stood near As he came His face had a rigid yet anxious look the countenance of a Man who i raved yet feared some Shock. His Back w is turned to the Quarter from which we came and in that position he addressed to me calmly some Inifi Erent observations. While the conversation i ent on he cast frequent and hurried glances to the a Riith and East till eyes had swept the whole horizon and he had satisfied himself that tiie ship was no longer in View he then turned fully round and with an affected gaiety but a real uneasiness which was apparent in the random character of remarks Drew out Glass and having by a a Long and scrutinizing examination satisfied cais at length recovered Cotini posture. When be Reachell our , i of Ted to ship just preparing to sail for Florence and i took my Jias Sage leaving the Captain to dispose of cargo at plea Uro. About eight months after this when i had almost forgotten the occurrence i was sitting in a private Carlsr of a lion Don hotel when a letter was put into my hands Froni Captain s.
