ALLANEETA CAVE. THl THADITIOW OF A EEAUTIFUL IKDIAJf PKIK* CESS. Thfrt exists in Meigs County, Ohio, one of the most mysterious caverns to be found in the State, butstranRC to relate, up to the presenuiate this aiiliq n« relic liM escaped *t _ _i *Ua Ikíolisriun fiiC CU/i* tiifl observation of the historiiin. ositics which alHjund in this cavern evt-•ienlly reveal traces oí some one of tlie native Indian tribes wIk) once occupied the Nortliweatern Territory prior to the advent of the wliites, and whtwe lineage has been almost entirely oblimrated. So, tliough the history of this%onderful rocky edifice apparently remains in complete obscurity, vet the wings of romance and the shadows ¿Í imagination have vested the spot with a lovely and weird tradition, of which the following account presents the sequel, and is generally accepted as the correct solution. The origin of this solution came »l)out through the dream of a hunter, who, while wandering in search of game, grew tired and threw himself down on the rough earUien Hoor within the huge projecting cavern and unconsciously took a long and delicious sleep. On awakening and returning home he related to his friends and neighbors the ioyful apparition he had of a beautiful Indian maiden, and to this day asserts that bis dream was the revelation of an actual reality interpreted to him ny an unknown spirit. The cave of Allanceta, where the incident occurred, is situated in a forest two miles east from the littls village ot Tappers Plains, and within six miles of the Ohm River. Its rock-ribbed walls are ornamented with deeply carved tracings of deer, panther and other profiles of various animals and scenes, wliife beneath, on the floor, is an extensive mass of clayey material, taken from a distance, and inclosing the remains some human being depotdted there centuries ago. To the dreamer it was revealed as tbst of Souita. an Indian Princess, ttie lovely daughter of a Chief. When quite young she waa so hsndsome aud her actions of such an osusual intelligent a obaracter, tliat by common consent of the tribe she was given the above appellation, which, interpreted means, ‘’Daughter of the Sun.” Kérly acquiring great skill with hunting weapons, as she grew older she was permitted to accompany her father in nnrsuit of gams, ami on several occasions exnibited extraordiaary bravery in rescuing him from pcriioos encounters with fierce animats. Tbsse exploits woo her the greatest oon-fideuce of the tribe, and by cunnlngneae and adroitoces she gained superior reputar tion as a charmer, sorceress and prophetess. To ths copper-colored lovers, both male and female, she became an astrologer, and by means of plants and fiowers foretoid marriages, aooidsnts and death with remarkable certainty. The iofiaenee of thia prophetess rapidly increased until none of the hunters or warrior» would seek gsme or make war without her consent, believing it wsa neeeaary, or ill-luck would attend their efforts. Bonita liad many lovers, but she evaded any pretensions to matrimony, declaring that the Great Spirit claimea her as bis bride, and she could ba none other, and repeatedly informed her Indian wooers that it made the Great Spirit very angry for any 'one to desire her as hie wife, and that the one who did so must suffer th^ severest penalty. Bonita predicted that, after death, ibe would be arrayed in garments briehter than the lunsliine, end far more brilliant than the moat gorgeous butterfly. She would then join her husband, the Great Spirit, and be perfectly happy. The good Indians, she declared, would become beau-tifnl birds, but the wicked ones would change to rocks and not enjoy any pleas-nrea. and not a single enemy of the tribe would be permitted to live there. The happy hunting grounds she pictured as a magniticent country, abounding in monntaliis, prairies and forests, interspersed here and there with the most beautiful rivers and lakes, and all alive witli myriads of every species of game. Ducks, fish, etc., would abound in the golden lakea, and tlie Indians could be transformed into laughing. sprightly, dancing sylphs of the air or water at thfir own pleasure. Their diwsaes would be mrgeously colored, and the Great Spirit would attend all their dances, fsstiv-itlesand other enjoymenta None would grew aged or infirm, out each one be made fltronger and stronger, and wives and hus-hnnds would be urovided In the liappy hunting grounds lur those who died here unmarried. Long lived this Indian Princen, and her influence preserved chastity aud a respect for females and kindred, hitherto a strau- Jer to those wild, untutored savages. The reap) relates that bows and arrows tint came into use smong the Indians during this period, and more wearing apparel was also adopted. The death of her father, ths chief, gave Bonita abeoluto rule, and it was Uie tint end probably tlis only reel gyneocretio reign ever exercised over any trihe of sav ages in North America. But the tradcal (>art of Uta dream is yet to be relsted. The rncroachmenu of another tribe compelled Bonita to choose war, and in battle her warriors were overpowered by numbers and the triiw smttere«i. ^nlta fled, but was captured and made Uie bride of the ronquering rliief, Des|ilsiiig her dcgradutioji end hriNHliiig over her mlie furitine. she resolvnl to cuiuiult suicide, and escaoing to Alluiierta Cave tlirew herself headlong from its summit and died instantly. Her remains were iuiiuU and the tribs gathered and iterfuruiotl the funeral obsequios with sadness, placing the body of Bonita on a rough pile of stones and bark and erecting around it a huge mound of clay, the hitter uiateriul belli* brought from a grtHtt distunoe.
