A sound awoke in the spirit land of voices and of wings a sound As when the gathered wind in the old Pine Forest sings As if in air profound hovered a sea of sound. The Monarch of the spirit land the shadows of renown with the symbols of their old estate sceptre and Robe and Crown another and another Rose up to meet a brother. A brother from the living land came Down to join the dead with Knighthood and with kindliness on brow and aspect shed and thus with Welcome him bespoke those shadows dim Quot All Hail and Welcome brother from feasting and from strife from All the Golden canopies and Thorney Beds of life from flatterer and from foe false Joy and real woe Quot Hast thou been called a Victor is thy land trophies Well Cote Down and with our conquerors choose out a place to dwell they ruled from East to West they Are phantoms now and rest. Quot look not Back to Earth crowned spirit but a moment since Sot free we Are strange but thou Art one of us and now a Man would be As much a tiling to dread As if Long Ages dead Quot come with us a All thy fathers have joined us one by one and All of every age and clime that ruled beneath the Sun we have the first King Here the last too shall a Pear. Quot with fathers of their people a with slayers of their race a with chiefs of slave Girt palaces a Coile Down and Cloose thy place to be one with us forever for Ever and for Ever Quot and sound died in the spirit land of voices of wings and awfully and silently moved Back the phantom Kings to their appointed doom of glory or of a Florin communicated. Tooth ache. Quot when fevers Burn and Agues freeze us. Rheumatic gnaw and Holics squeeze us. Our neighbors to ease Osvi pitying Iii Una but thou the hell o . They mock our by . The Toothache is rendered More distressing if not More acute by there being no commiseration for the wretchedness it occasions. The belief in this and a keen recollection of bodily and mental sufi ering have produced the following Little narrative some months ago a tremendous tooth with three enormous prongs confined me to my room and irritated me to a state Little Short of distraction. With my head tied up in a Bandanna handkerchief both hands on my affected jaw i sat swaying my body to and fro As if endeavouring to Calm a fractious child at other times i stamped about like a Lunatic or plunged on my bed like a Frog swimming. Being at length reduced to a stat3 of exhaustion i was anxious to Retreat from All Intercourse with the world yet Knock after Knock continued As if Only to increase my already excessive nervous irritability. Many of the persons i had no desire to see but some were those interwoven with my professional pursuits and i was compelled to be at Home. I had to account for my disconsolate appearance to describe my tormenting pangs till i was weary of speaking upon the subject. To All of my fervid descriptions i received the cold remark and the chilling advice that it was Only the Toothache and that i had better have it extracted. All this Lime the salivary glands wore pouring their fluids into my Mouth the gastric juices were wasting their Powers and i was in a paroxysm of sex Cut Ealing anguish. It was astonishing How persons could calmly behold such a complication of miseries. Nothing could be eaten slops became offensive the sight of a spoon frightful and a Basin revolting As a perpetual Blister. Even the air could not be taken it was too much for the petulance of my capricious tooth. On it raged a As if torments were its Delight. In All my Reading i never met with any author but Burns who had a proper idea of the Toothache. He wishes his enemies to have it for a Twelvemonth. Of dear he must be More or less than Man who could endure this. He must despair and perish. How True it is that out of evil often some Good will Spring for while i was enduring this Thumbscrew on my Gumbs this gout in Iny jaw this rack of nerves Unis destroyer of brains amid no. 795. Tlemcen did not mind it much because the next attempt was always a gentleman who had been waiting for me in the parlor was now introduced who exclaimed Quot my dear Friend i can cure you in five Quot How How Quot inquired i do in pity Quot instantly Quot said he. Whereupon he produced a bottle of Montague s Balm. Quot there Quot said he if that do not cure you i will forfeit my head. You May Tell this in Gath and publish it in the of Ascalon the remedy is it was As he predicted. On the introduction of the Balm i experienced a sensation of warmth which gradually subsided and with it the torment of the to thai he. From scenes incidents and adventures just published by w. Irving. Story of Kosatko the renegade Blackfoot. If the meekness and Long suffering of the pier ced noses grieved the spirit of Captain Boneville there was another individual in the Camp to whom they were still More annoying. This was a Blackfoot renegade named Kosatko a fiery hot blooded youth who with a Beautiful girl of the same tribe had taken Refuge among the Nez per Ces. Though adopted into the tribe he still re ,. A stained the fierce warlike spirit of his race and our seminaries and institutions of learning. We most Jie eded and stealing quietly from the Village mounted the first horses we encountered. Speeding Day and night we soon reached this tribe. They received us with Welcome and we have dwelt with them in peace. They Are Good and kind they Are honest but their hearts Are the hearts of such was the Story of Kosatko As related to Captain Bonneville. It is of a kind that often occurs in Indian life where love elopement from tribe to tribe Are As frequent As among the novel read heroes and heroines of sentimental civilization and often gives Rise to bloody and lasting feuds.

This desolation i acquired Mitch useful information respecting the Toothache. One Friend informed the that half the suffering was occasioned by a nervous irritability for if i went to a dentist with a Demerit ignation to have the to Ltd oth extracted the moment i entered the door the tooth would cease to give me pain. He had proved it More than once. Another Fried us smiled at my deplorable situation and laughed at my desire i retain in my Mouth such a thing that had ceased to be a Noih it was a Mere stump with a curious Triplex Fang worse than useless it was positively injurious. If the Case was his he should give such tenant Minme Liate notice to quit. With a pair of Pinchers he would serve the eject tent himself As an empty House was preferable to a bad tenant. Another Friend requested my to be careful in selecting an operator on my tooth for that he went to a dentist once under anguish scarcely endurable to have a Large double tooth like mine extracted. He made a round o of his Mouth the operator popped in his instrument and us a a la it slipped. He fell As if a loaded Wagon had passed Over his head. The dentist apologized saying Quot it was a Conion occurrence Gen the recent coverings of the Black feet about the Camp their i Gilly prowls and daring and successful Maradus Iliad kept Hirn in a fever and a flutter like a Hawk in a Cige who hears his Laie companions stooping and screaming in wild Liberty above him. J he attempt of Captain Bonneville to Rouse the War spirit of the Nez Perces and prompt them to retaliation was ardently seconded by Kosatko. For several Days he was incessantly devising schemes of vengeance and endeavouring to set on foot and expedition that silo wild carry dismay and desolation into the blackfeet towns. All his Artw As exerted to touch upon those fierce Springs of human action with which he was most familiar. He Drew the listening Savages around him by Liis her Vous eloquence taunted them with recitals of past wrongs and insults Drew glowing pictures of triumphs and trophies within their reach recounted tales of daring and romantic Enterprise of secret marching Covert lurking Midnight Surpri Sals sackings burnings plundering Scalp Ings together with the triumphant return and the feasting and rejoicing in of the victors i i Ese wild tales were intern in led with the beating of the drum the yell the War hoop and the War dance so inspiring to Indian valor. All however were lost upon the peaceful spirits of his hearers. Not a Nez Perce was to be roused to vengeance or stimulated to glorious War. In the bitterness of his heart the Blackfoot Renegado refined at the mishap which jihad severed him from a race of congenial spirits and driven him to take Refuge among beings so destitute of martial fire. The character and conduct of this Man attracted the attention of Captain Bonneville and he was anxious to hear the reason Why he had deserted his tribe and Why he looked Back upon them with such deadly hostility. Kosatko told him his own Story briefly it gives a picture of the deep Strong passions that work in the bosoms of these mis called stoics. Quot you see my wife Quot said he Quot she is Good she is Beautiful i love her. Yet she has been the cause of All my troubles. She was the wife of a chief. I loved her More than he did and she knew it. We talked together we laughed together we were always seeking each other s society but we were As innocent As children. The chief grew jealous and commanded her to speak with Rne no More. His heart Breame hard towards her his jealousy grew More furious. He beat her without cause and without mercy and threatened to kill her outright if she even looked at me. Do you want traces of his fury look at that scar his rage against me was no less persecuting. War parties of the crows were Hov ering round us our Young men had seen their Trail. All hearts were roused for action my horses were before my Lodge. Suddenly the chief came took them to his own pickets and called them his own. Wii at could i do he was a chief. I Durst not speak but my heart was burning. I joined no longer in the Council the Hunt or the had i to do there an a horsed degraded Warrior. I kept by myself and thought of nothing but these wrongs and outrages. Quot i was sitting one evening upon a Knoll that overlooked the Meadow Liere tie horses were pastured. I saw the horses that were once mine grazing among those of the chief. This made Iliad me and i sat brooding for a time Over the injuries i had suffered and the cruelties which she i loved had endured for my Sake until my heart swelled and grew sore and my Teeth were clenched. As i looked Down upon the Meadow i saw the chief walking among his horses. I fastened Tny eyes on him As a Hawks my blood boiled i Drew Tny broach hard. 11� went among the Willows. In an instant i was on my feet my hand was in my knife i flew rather than rank before he was aware 1 Stratig upon him and with two blows Laid him dead at my feet. I covered his body with Earth and strewed Bushes Over the place then hastened to her i loved told her what i had done and urged her to Fly with me. She Only answered me with tears. I reminded her of the wrongs i had suffered and of the blows and stripes she had endured from the deceased i had done nothing but an act of Justice. I again urged her to Fly but she Only wept the More and bade me go. My heart was heavy but my eyes Weie dry. I folded my Well Quot Slid 1 Quot Kosatko will go alone to Tho desert. None will be with him but the wild beasts of the pin Iris. The seekers of blood May follow on his Trail. They May come upon him when he sleeps and glut their revenge but you will be Safe. Kosatko will go alone. Quot i turned away. She sprang after me and strained me in her arms. No Oriet she Kosatko shall not go alone wherever he goes will go a he shall never part from me Quot we hastily took in our hands such things As hand i Hope Lar.

He is a truly polished nod eloquent Man and there is something in your Mode of worship so systematic and so much in accordance with decency and order and so much the opposite to that wild ranting kind of worship that i have fallen in love with it. You see Here i have Purchase me a common prayer Book. The Organ and choir in Bishop a s Church Are Superior to any i have Ever heard. I called on the Bishop the next morning and obtained an introduction to him. He does not of course take any open part in politics yet he gave me to understand in the course of our conversation that his feelings Are on the right Side. Exit enter methodist. Lawyer. How do you do brother m. I Call you brother because my parents were methodists. And when i was a child the preachers used to visit our House and i used to Call them All Quot Brothers Quot from hearing my father and Mother Call them so. It is singular How Strong the impressions of childhood Are. Though i do not profess relight a yet i always feel More at Home in a methodist meeting than in any other. And yet 1 do not know whether this arises so much from the Force of my Early impressions As from that simplicity Peculiar to your worship and which is so congenial to my taste. I was Riding through g. The other Day and As i came opposite a peace of Wood i heard the sound of singing immediately discovered there was a Camp meeting in the Vicinity and notwithstanding my business was very urgent i could not resist my inclination to attend. So i tied my beast to a tree and after walking a mile i came to the ground. The first object that met my Eye was the presiding elder brother g. Appealing in a most evangelical manner to the people who were seated beneath shading branches of the surrounding Forest. How Fri Reibly it brought to my mind the mount of olives i am considerably acquainted with or. G.

Well Thomas How is thy health i am glad that thee has taken the trouble to Call. Quaker. I do not trouble gentlemen of thy profession very often but i have called this afternoon to pay some Money to thee. As we friends do not believe in training men in the Art of killing men systematically they oblige us to pay for the enjoyment of our principles and i understand thee is the i forget what military people Call it the Man who receives the Constitution Money. Lawyer. Yes and i wish i could get off As Well As you a whereas it costs me ten times the sum besides eight or Tea Days drilling every year. But what renders the task More unpleasant is the reflection that Alwy arises when see the Banner flying and hear that Drums beating around me that the object of All this preparation is to train us in the Art of destroying each other. And then i always think of the peaceful settlement of Pennsylvania by Penn. My Grandfather was a Quaker and i have always admired their plainness of dress simplicity of language and Pacific sentiments. In Short Thomas i have often thought that if we were All quakers society would resemble the state of our first parents in Eden. Quaker. We shall never be All quakers so Long As so Many of us Are hypocrites and of Long As hypocrites have so much influence. If thy Grandfather was a Quaker i am sorry thee has so degenerated from thy ancestors the scruples thee professes about military duty condemn thee for thee must be deluded by the Devil to violate thy conscience also great expense. Thee sneaks our Langu Afie flippantly and admires our dress thy Ordinary dialect and thy fashionable Blue coat figured Vest and Gaudy watch embellishments Are incontestable proof of Why Sineti to.

Presenger is described As a Large raw boned Man about 40 or 45 Yequis of age dark complexion with a Large full Blue Eye and dark hair is about 6 feet High at times wears Large dark whiskers.
