Soon As possible some three Hundred warriors or More name Rush no Baek flushed with Victory and full of they seemed to know that they had routed the largest body of their opponents and were eager to find the remainder. It was a critical moment when they stood upon the open ground within gunshot of Gen. Wellborn s men on the other Bank of Tho Lagoon demanding of Tho women where they had seen Tho White the indians knew that the Lagoon was Forda ble but their opponents did not at the moment they wer about to Rush in and at a Given signal a Well directed fire was poured in upon them from the whole line and they fell Baek with a shout of terror and dismay into a pm Wood about forty rods Distant leaving Many of their number dead upon the Field. It was evident that the fire told Well but no less certain that the foe would soon rally and return with a Confidence of Victory. They knew there was no escape for the White Man Aud that they had driven from the Field his strongest Force. Violent speeches of the Chiofa and warriors were heard and u iders Lood. In about forty minutes a hideous yell of Onset rang through the Forest and an entire array of the Indian Foice leaped upon the Bank of the Lagoon to Cross and drive their assailants by closer tight. At that in mint they received a Seco id time the whole fire of Gen.

A Heving from the demonstrations of the i Duns that the Lagoon was Fordable he ordered two men at different Points to Mike the attempt and if they aug be Jud Tho whole corp were to plunge in form upon Bank and Rush upon the foe. It was hut the w re of a moment and every Man was in line. The conflict was desperate and blood women fought and full with the men. A in Gle White Man encountered a War rior and two of his wives All three of whom he Laid dead at his feet by a necessity which he could net avoid in self preservation. The indians fled across a Bridge of Trees which they had thrown Over Hie pee fighting and falling in their Retreat and All that could were soon out of tha Battle leaving behind them Camp and spoils the wounded the dying and the dead. Seventy three warriors averaging six feet and two inches in height were counted among the slain.

He lived to recover of his wounds joined his party and afterwards made the following speech to Gen. Wellborn at Concha to Mecco s town when about to Emi grate with his people. You Are a great chief. I have fought As Long As i could. You have beaten me. You have killed and taken nearly All Iny people. I am now ready to go the farther from you the better. We cannot be 1 thank you Lor taking ease of my women children and wounded warriors and for sending them Back to me. You Are a great in the sleeve of the coat of a Othlo Woholo after the Battla Wera found Twenty eight Hundred dollars in Gold and Many spoils that had been taken from murdered White families or pillaged from their deserted houses were recovered. A Roll of Bank notes was also found. Most of the Indian ponies were Lefi behind and the whole of the next Day waa consumed in making arrangements for a vigorous Pursuit of the routed indians. Nine of the ninety engaged in this attack were killed. The carcasses of the Are sorry to learn Weie left without the exasperated feelings of the troops themselves the citizens of a common wealth doomed to the horrible atrocities of an Indian War with their families exposed Many of whom had Al usual respect of i valued warfare. It was a scene of carnage left to the face of the nun and to Tho eyes of the stars. On tha morning of the third Dav a Pursuit the retreating foe was ordered the Trail of which led them Down the pee to the plantations of two Bro hers Josiah and Robert , about forty Miles be Low Tho Battle ground above described. As they approached these settlements it needed no Prophet s pen to anticipate the Fate of these unhappy families. The Indiana still counting scarcely less than two Hun dred wainorf., came upon them these cond Josh Hart had a a life son and two daughters the t of whom Mary was nine of age.

He was also provided with nine pieces of fire arms rifles double barrel and o her kept constantly ready fora sudden Emer gency. In one of these build nos. The whole family slept by their Aims and ammunition while the watch dog kept his Post without. At the mid hour of this fatal they were suddenly awakened by thl Earnest Barking of the dog and Thuc sir Nul Juneous yells of the indians. The dog Jas silenced by the rifles of the Savages and the subsequent stillness without except Whin interrupted by the occasional Light tread or sudden bound of the evil foe around the House , m step anal on for the execution of his purpose was dreadful. Having in their usual stratagem of during out the tenants of the House in affright by the yells of the Onset in they would to to foil Mso lie hands of a put in ambush they Opportunity to make an attack through the crevices of the logs which composed the Walls of the building not succeeding in this for the reason before mentioned and not venturing Yat to enter the Coult for fear of fire from within which had not yet opened tip or them their next device was to kind e a fire under tha Side of the dwelling by which if buc they were sure of their this icy could not Well do in the daily with tit becoming Marks for an unseen hand. Accordingly the first attempt proved fatal to those engaged in it and two or three indians fell before the sure aim of the Rifle from1 within the Walls. Hour after hour in painful suspense passed away now and then a shot from either party to Little or no Pur pose except that a Chance Ball from in Indian Rifle found its Way Between the logs or.

At length a lurid Light cast upon Tho Clouds discovered to or.

The flames Rose higher and threw upon his besieged habitation a flood of Light that compelled the besi Gersho retire behind the out houses for Protection us they would other Wise be exposed to the fisc of or. Hart and his sons. Day dawned at last and a desultory fire was commenced As Chance invited and As an Indian head was exposed View. Several of the indians exasperated at these failures they re solved to set the House on fire at any Hazard. They collected combustibles chose their and rushed with fire and kindling Wood under the stick Chimney a the House where As it happened the rifles Forfi within could not be brought to Bear. The smoke was soon Felt in the House and not a moment was to be lost. Despair finds weapons and by the concert of a Momant a bold device was projected to strike through the frail Chimney Back on the Heads of the and by a Sun clan sortie drive them from the Field to Purchase to themselves an Opportunity of escape to the fort about seven Miles Distant. It was done. Three or four indians were killed and tha pest fled. In some two hours after Hart and his children were All safely lodged in the fort having left their House to pillage and flame to which it Jovas doomed in the course of Tho morn ing so soon As the indians jihad mustered a stronger Forte and returned to re new the attack.
