Leohard a Hes j. P. From the Western monthly review attack on Bryants station. I know of no place nearer than tie ices of the Mississippi of the Rocky mountains where the Reli Ige of a Quot station necessary. The Hist one in the West will soon have Moul dered and his Tryand Llie lexicon will he the Only Deposit iries of the knowledge what tie term imports. Of the million readers in the u. S. Is probably a Large allowance that five Lio usand of the first settlers of tiie Wesl be Call them old Resi enters have a to idea in their minds of the aspect ind intent of the establishment. I have in in a number that were erected on our Irthy Clem and Southern frontiers during he late War with great Britian. Willen favor to Transfer to my readers the distinct picture which was thus impressed upon my own mind. The first emigrants that fixed them does in the fair valleys of Kentucky id Tennessee came in companies id societies. A Hundred neighbors a ends Connexions old and Young Mother and daughter sire and infant he House dog and Domestic animals ill set Forth on the patriarchal Wilder Ess trooping As on a frolic. No Dis option of the tender Natal and moral ies no revulsion of the recipe cities f kindness Friendship and love took Ilace. The Cement and the panoply if reciprocal affection and Good will was in their hearts and on their breast they came Over the mountains to it the wide Domain of the red men and he wild howlers of the desert Liki the gregarious tribes and the Vernal emigration of the sea fowl to the inferior lakes they brought All their charities their True Home with them. Their slate of isolation cemented these kindly feelings. It has been found that the current of human affect for flows More full and Strong in pro Poi on As it is less divided and diverted Ito numerous channels. This Community coming to Survey new aspects if a nature measured Only by the imagination new dangers a new world id in some sense a new existence Ere bound to each other by ment As old As the human heart i Hundred times heard Tkv remains of this race of the Golden age lore the distance and coldness of a measured jealous and proud Inte Lourse of the present generation ii comparison of the simple kindness Thi Frank and Domestic relations of those primeval Days reminding me of Thi affecting accounts of the Mutual Lovi if christians in the Early period of Thi Hurb. When the social band had planted their feet on the Virgin soil the first object was to fix on a spot Central to me of the most extensive Upland uvious of gentle swell and Declivity where Pawpaw Cane and wild Clover marked exuberant Fertility and where the Woods were so open that the banter coi ild ride in any direction at half Speed. The curse of party feuds and political asperity had not yet smitten the soil with sterility and it yielded almost without our cultivation than plaiting from eighty to a Hundred bushels of Maize to the acre and All other desirable products in prop tin game was so abundant that two Hunters would often kill Chi Ough in two dat8,.to last a station of a Quot Hundred Louii a month and their Robus id damsels were your Rice cake Aud wafer caters lither. They walked played danced hunted and loved in strength and Gladne and their consumption of Nde Venison was in proportion. The next thing after finding the Centra Point of this Hunter s Paradise was to build a station which now main5 to be described. It was de Rable that it should be near a flush Limestone Spring and if a Salt lick and prodigious sugar Maple Orchard were t hand so much the the next preliminary step was to Lear a considerable area so As that Lothing should be left to screen an enemy from View and a shot. If a Prin could be enclosed or a Good Well dug in the enclosure they Werf considered important elements but As n Indian siege Seldom extended be Ond one or two Days and As enough 0 last through the emergency could ways be stored in a Reservoir Iowa it emed still More important that the position should be on a rising ground is much As possible overlooking the adjoining Forest. The form was a perfect parallelogram including from 1 half to a full acre. A Trench was then dug four or five feet deep and Nti gurus pickets planted in it so us form a compact Wall ten or twelve to above the ground. The pickets were of hard and durable Timber near a a foot in diameter and formed a impart beyond the Power of Man Ither to leap or overthrow by the Percise of individual and unaided physical Power. At the angles were Small projecting squares of still str ii her material and planting technical la railed flankers with oblique port holes 10 that the Sentinel within could Rake he external front of the station with it. Two folding Gates front and a ear swinging on prodigious wooden. Hinges gave ingress and egress to and teams in time of Security. A Ither times a trusty Sentinel on the roof fan Interior build Iii was station cd so As to be Able to Descry at a Dis Ance every suspicious object. Tin ates were always firmly Haried by Light and sentinels through its a in civil watches relieved each other in turn. Nothing can be imagined Moree Ireci Ual for its purposes than this simple it Ivance in the line of fortification. True these Walls would not have stood inst the battering ram of Josephu the balls of a six Pounder. Bui they were proof against Indian Strei Igli a patience and Rifle shot. The Only i pediment was to undermine them or Troy them with fire and this could it be easily done without exposing them to the Rifle of the flankers. Of Ourse there Are few recorded i stances where they were taken who kill fully and resolutely their regular forms in the Cental wilderness their aspect of Security their social City she rendered them delightful objects to an Emigrant who had come two Hundred leagues without in a human habitation. Around the Interior of these Walls the buil dings of the Little Community arose itral clean Esplanade for dancing and wrestling and the other primeval amusements of the Olden Days. It is questionable if heartier id happier eating and sleeping wrestling and dancing Loving and mar a Ying fall to the lot of their descendants who ride in coaches and dwell in spacious mansions. Venison and wild turkeys Sweet potatoes and pie smoked on the to and per Simoi and Maple Beer quaffed As Well a least for health As Madeira or nectar the Community spent their merry evenings together and while the fire blazed Bright within the Little and secure Square the far howl of wolves or even the solitary Wai whoop of an Indian sounded in the ear of the Happy and reckless i dwellers like the driving storm pouring on the sheltering Rod above the head of the traveller safely nestled in his clean and quiet bed that is brought the contrast of Comfort and Security in More Home Felt emphasis to the bosom. Such a station was Bryant s in 1782. It was the nucleus of the settlements of that delightful and Rich country of which Lexington is the present Centre. There were at this time but two others North of the Kentucky River. It was More open to attack than any other in the country. The Miami on the North and the Licking on the South of the Ohio were Long canals which led fron the Northern hive of the Savages Between the lakes and the Ohio directly to it. In the summer of this year a grand assemblage convened at Chili Cote. The cherokees Wyandot Tawas Wottowa Tomies and most of the tribes bordering on u e lakes were represent Din it. Besides their chiefs and some canadians they were aided by the councils of the Girths and Kee Renegado Whites. I have made diligent enquiry touching the Iphy of these men particularly Simon Girty a wretch whose name is if More notoriety in the instigation of the wars and massacres of these indians than any other in our records. No tortured captive escaped from them in these times who could not Tell the which Simon Girty had in his buffeting a no burnings and murders in which he assisted not either with his presence or his councils. I have gained 10 specific information except that hey were supposed to be refugees from Pennsylvania. They added the i curating and combining Powers of the Whites o the instinctive cunning id ferocity of the Savages. They had their warlike propensities without their magnanimity and their appetite Abr blood without their Active or Pas Ive courage. They had the bad pro Ertie soothe Whites and indians unmixed with the Good of either. The cruelty of the indians had some show f Pallia Ting theirs was gratuitous or cold blooded Iid without visible motive. Yet is Lon Girty like the people among h,.m he dwelt sometimes took the Freak of kindness no reason could be assigned wherefore and once or twice aved an unhappy victim from being wasted alive. This Renegado lived n plenty and smoked his pipe and rank off his whiskey in his log Pali the indians As an Ora he was seen Clad in r Soldier s coat Pantalos belted with pistols Rore a watch with an i r Chain and Tassel of probably the spoils of had Cle. Ruffled shirt a is and garters and Dirks and Normous length ornaments All order Andas Trong affection of Wisdom be is no doubt but in these Days he id have worn Green spectacles. So habited he swelled in the View of the unhappy Indian captives like the pea a Ock spreading his morning plumage. There is a Little doubt by his interposition were spared thai be might have White admirers and display to them his grandeur and the extent of his influence among the in slavs. The great assemblage to which i live referred gathered round the shrine of Simon Girty for counsel a ouch Iii the Point which it was exp client to assail. He painted to them the delights of the land of Cane Clover Leer and buffaloes and the fair Val lies of the Kan Tuckee for which so Ich blood had been shed. He the gradual encroachment of the Whites and the necessity of a did Effort if they would Ever regain Possession of their Rich and a Glit Ful Domain. He warned them if the present order of things continued lha the Whites would soon leave them i Hunting grounds Worth retaining id no Means of procuring rum with hich to War late hearts o naked backs descend the idea the Licking a canoes to the very co int s station. These a with yells of Enthus away marched this id cheer their Desor blankets to clothe their they were advised to Miami Cross the Ohio id paddle their cd was receive is tic applause Short of biped wolves howling through the Forest to their canoes on the Miami. Girty in his ruffled shirt and Soldier coat stalked at their head silently feeding upon his own grandeur. The station against which they were destined enclosed forty Cabins. They arrived before it aug. Is 1782, in the night. In the morning the inhabitants were warned of their presence by being fired upon As they opened their doors. The time of their arrival was providential. In two hours most of the efficient males of the station were to have marched to two other stations which were reported to have been a tacked. The place would thus hav been left completely defenceless. The. Garrison found Means to dispatch one of their number to Lexington to announce the assault and crave Aid. Sixteen mounted men and thirty one on foot were immediately marched off to their Aid. The number of the assailant amount de to at least six Hundred. In conformity to the common modes of India warfare they attempted to gain the place by stratagem. The great body concealed themselves among High weeds upon the opposite Side of Thi station within pistol shot of the Spring from which it was supplied with Wate with a detachment Ofa Hundred they commenced a false attack upon the Southeast Angle with a View to draw the attention of the Ganson to that Point. This stint age was predicated on the a Bellei that the inhabitants would All Provot to the Point of assault and leave the apposite one defenceless. But Here the reckoned without their Host. The people instantly penetrated their purpose and instead of return ing their fire commenced what ought have been completed before repair in the a Palisades and pulling the a Ionin a condition of defend e. The High and luxuriant Jamestown weeds near the Spring instructed these experienced Bac woodsmen that a Host of the foe lurked beneath their Shel Tenn foliage there to await the coming Forth of the men to draw water Abr the Supply of the Garrison. Let Modem wives who hesitate to follow their husbands to this place because it s deemed unhealthy or to that be Ause it will remove them from the Icene of their accustomed pleasures hear and Prepend these Noble wives mothers Dau gaiters and sweethearts i dare affirm handsomer than Ever Juno in Venus or Minerva or any of the Lymph to Boot appeared on mount Olympus informed the Meb the there As Little probability that the indians would fire upon them As their game undoubtedly was the men and that if even they did shoot Down a few of them it would in no Way diminish the resources of the Garrison. The illustrious heroines armed themselves with buckets and marched Down to the Spring spying Here and there a painted face and an Indian body crouching under the thick foliage. Whether the indians were fascinated with their Beauty or their courage does not but so it was they fired not and these fair and generous ones came and went until the Reservoir was sufficiently sup lied with water. I depend upon Traditi onary rather than written do ii minis for the fact that a round number of kisses were exchanged with these heroic ladies who so nobly jeopardised themselves and proved that the disinterested daring of affection is not a Mere poet s fiction. After such an example it was no ways difficult to procure Young volunteers ready to try the indians in the Way. As they deemed they had lean Ely advanced from the station before i Hundred indians fired Apon them. They retreated within the Palisade and the whole Indian Force Rose Yelling and rushed upon the enclosure. They howled with a Ere disappointed rage when they found every Ting prepared for their reception. A Wel directed fire drove them to a More Lutious distance. Some of the More desperate of their number howler inured on the East exposed Point so tas to he Able to discharge burning Dws upon the roofs of the houses. Some of them were fired and Burnt iut an Easterly wind providentially Rose at the moment and secured the Nass of the buildings from the spread big of the flames and the remnant they Ould not reach with their arrows. The enemy lurked Back to their overt in the weeds waiting Panther like for safer game. They had been informed or they had divined it that id was expected from l Xiii ton and they arranged an Ambuscade to inti it it on its approach to the Garrisi when the reinforcement consists _ if forty six persons came in sight the iring had ceased. The enemy were ii invisible and they came on in reek less Confidence under the impression that they had marched on a false alarm a Lane opened an Avenue to the station through a thick Cornfield. This Lane Ambuscade on either Side by the indians for a Hundred Yards. For Tui Tely As it was dry and mid Summe. The horsemen raised such a Cloud of dust that they sustained the close fire if the indians without losing a Man or Iven a horse. The footmen were less fortunate. They dispersed in the coi Field in Hopes to reach the Garrison unobserved. But masses of constantly increasing Between Ellem and thessalion intercepted them. Hard fighting ensued and two of them Wei killed and four wounded. Soon anti and the indians were lying their Covert again and herds of the station came in i by ruminating As they made their Way towards their night pens. Upon these harmless animals the indians had unmolested sport and they made a Complete destruction of them a Little after Sunset the Famou Girty covertly approached Thi g risen Moun Ted a stump where he could be heard by the people within and demanded a Parley and the surrender of the place. He managed his proposals with no Small degree of Art As a giving in imitation of the commanders of numer Ous armies that they were dict Ted by his humanity that lie wished to spare the effusion of human blood that in Case of a surrender he could answer for the Security of the piers but that in the even of taking the Garrison by storm he could not that Cannon were approaching with n reinforcement in which Case they must he aware that the Palisades could no Loi Ger Avail to secure them from the Iii serous and incensed foe. Hit Impo Silig manner had More effect in producing consternation As the Garrison knew that the same lots had used Cao-11011 in the attack of Ruddle s and Matin s stations. Some faces bleached. Two had been already slain amp the four wounded were groaning among them. Some of the More considerate apprised of he Folly of allowing such a be Gocia Torin Sucha Way to intimidate the Garrison called out to shoot the Rascal adding to his name the customary Kentucky epithet. Girty insisted upon his promised Security As a Flag of truce while this negotiation lasted and demanded with great assumed dignity i they knew who it was who thus addressed them. A spirited Young Man of whom the most honorable mention is made in the subsequent annals of Indian warfare was deputed to answer the renegade negotiator. Gisob Jet was to do away the depression of the Garrison and perhaps to gain a reputation for Jaggery As he already had for fighting. Yes replied Rey nolds we know you Well. You Are one of those cowardly villains who love to murder women and children especially those of your own people know Simon ii to yes his father was a Panther and his dam a Wolf. I have a Wor Liless dog that kills lambs. Instead of shooting him i have called him Simon Girty. You expected reinforcements and Cannon do you we expect reinforcements too and in numbers to give Short reckoning to your cowardly wretches. Cannon you would not dare touch them off if you had them. Even i you could Batter Lown our pickets i for one hold your people in two much contempt to Honor hem by discharging fire arms upon them should you take the trouble to in fort i have been roasting a great number of Hickory switches with which we mean to whip you naked rash ils out of the country now you be Burnt says Simon apparently no ways edified or flattered by the reply. Affecting to deplore the obstinacy and infatuation of the _ a Ison the Manof re fled shirt and Soldie coat returned and the firing commenced again. The besieged gave cd account of every one who came r enough to take a fair shot. But before morning the main body marched away to the lower Blue licks where they obtained a signally fatal amp bloody Triumph. The India Sand canadians re said to have exceeded 6 Hundred and the besieged numbered forty two riflemen before their reinforcements. From the u. S. Telegraph. Toge Mclean and the Bradley.
