I left Beavertown in the mail coach, at
eleven o clock in the forenoon, for Poland
in Tnjmbull county, Ohio, distant thirty
eight miles. Directly on leaving Bridge
water and crossing a small stream, on a
neat bridge, we began to ascend a lon«*.
steep hill, called Brady’s IliH. It reoel
vc<lits name froxn an interesting border
adventure, which occurred in ‘‘early times”
n«ar its base Captain Samuel Brady was
one of that band of brave men, who lived
in the trying days of the American Revo
lution, on the Western borders, exposed to
all the horrors and danger of Indian war
fare, and whose names shall bt, perpetua
ted in history. He held a commission un
der the Umtcd States, and for apart of
the time commanded a company of ran
ges, who traversed the forests for the pro
tection < the frontiers. Ho was born in
I V Uc * ear *758, and
removed, probably .when Ti boy; into the
Talley of the Mondngahela. At the pe
nt of Am adventure he lived on' the
Charter Greek, about .twelve miles below
Port Pitt; a stream better known, how

whenever they crossed hi* path, or came
within reach of his rifle; for ho was per
sonally engaged in more hazardous contests
TO* the savages, than any other man west
of fhe tnountauis excepting Daniel Boone.
He .was in met an Indian hunter, as many
of the narly borderers were. This class of
men appear .to have been more numerous
in this region than in any other portion of

slafcgMer at Braddock's defeat, and the
ntibiekpusi murders and attacks oh defence-
femilies that for many years followed
that Brady was also a very suc
cessful ;trapperand hunter, and took more
beaTej: ■ than any of the Indiana them
selves; In one of his adventurous trap-
Pi«g excursions to the Beaver "river, or
in early days §o abound
ed witpr the animals of this species that it
took i& name from the fact, it so happen-'
ed that; the Indians surprised him in his
canin ;dbd took him prisoner. To have
shot or tomahawked him on the spot
Wpiild jhaVeibeen but a small gratification
to-tjiaft pf satiating their revenge by bur
i bihi ft t a slow fire, in the presence of
all the| Indians of their village. He was
thejtcfjre taken aliye to their encampment
on the j west, bahfc of the Beaver River
about a mile aud a half from its mouth!
Affer the usual exultations and rejoicings
at; the capture of a noted enemy, and cau
sing; him to run the gauntlet, a fire was
prepared, near which Brady was placed,
after being stripped naked, and with bis
arms unbound. Previously to tying to the
stake ajlarge circle was formed, consisting
of Indian men, womcn aud children, dan°
cingand yelling, and uttering all manner
of threats and abuse that their small
knowledge of the English language could
afford. •: The prisoner looked on these pre
parations for death, and on his savage foes
with a steady eye, meeting all-their threats
with a ; truly savage fortitude. ’Ju the
midst ;(>f their dancing and rejoicing, .a
fltjuaw .of one of their chiefs came near
with a child in her arms. Quick as
and with an intuitive prescience,
he snatched it from her and threw it into
tbe midst of fhe flames. Horror-struck
at the siidden outrage, the Indians simul
taneously rushed to rescue the infant from
.fire-; In the midst of the confusion
Brady parted from the circle, overturning
all that Came in hig way, and rushed into
the adjacent thickets, with the Indians
I yelling at his heels. He ascended the
steep aide of the present hill amidst a
shower ;of bullets, and darting down the
Opposite; declivity, secreted himself in the
deep, ravines and laurel thickets that
abound for several miles around it. His
knowledge of the country and wonderful
activity enabled him to elude his enemies,
and reach the settlements on the south of
the Ohio river, which he crossed by swim

authority, it seems that the following in
cident actually transpired in this vicinity.
Brady’f residence, was on Chartler’s creek
on the south' side of the Ohio, as before
noticed j ;pnd being a man of Herculean
“strength,'activity and courage, he was gen
erally as the leader of the hardy
bordererS in all theyr incursions into the
Indian territory north of the river. On
this OFceajsion, which was about the year
1780, a huge party of warriors from the
falls of the Cuyahoga and the adjacent'
countiy, |ad made an inroad on the south
side of thp Ohio river, in the lower part

ALTOONA, PA., THURSDAY, JANUARY 19, 1860.
The Indiana, extending their line to the
right and left, forced him on to the bank
of the stream. , Having, in peaceable
times, often hunted over this ground with
the Indians, and knowing every turn in
the Cuyahoga as familiarly as the villager
knows the streets of his own hamlet, Bra
dy directed his course to the river, to a
spot where the whole stream is compress
ed, by the rocky cliffs, into a narrow chan
nel of only twenty-two feet across the top
pf the chasm, although it is considerably
wider beneath, near the water,, and in its
height more than twice that number pf
feet above the current. Through this
pass the water rushes like a race-horse,
chafing and roaring at the confinement of
its. current by the rocky channel, while,
a short distance above, the stream is at
least fifty yards wide. As he approached
the chasm, Brady, knowing that life or
death was in the effort, concentrated his
mighty powers, and leaped the stream at a
single bound. It so happened that, in the
opposite cliff, the leap was favored by a
low place, into s which he dropped, and
grasping the bushes, he thus helped him
self to ascend to the top of the cliff. The
Indiana, for a few moments, were lost in
wonder and admiration, and before they
hW recovered their recollection, he was
half way up the side of the opposite hill,
hut still within reach of their rifles. They
could easily have shot him at any moment
before, but being bent on taking him alive,
for torture, and to glut their long-delayed
revenge, they forbore the use of the rifle ;
but now seeing him likely to escape, they
all fired upon him j one bullet wounding
him severely in the"hip, but not so badly
as to prevent bis progress. The Indians
having to make considerable circuit before
they could cross the stream, Brady ad
vanced a good distance ahead. His limb
was growing stiff from the wound, and as
the Indians gained on him, he made fqr
the pond which now bears Lis name, and
plunging in, swam undej: water a consid
erable distance, and came up under the
trynk of a large oak, which had'fallen into
the pond. This, although leaving only a
small breathing place to support life, still
completely sheltered him from their sight.
The Indians, tracing him by blood to the
water, made diligent search all round the
pond, but finding no signs of his exit, fi
nally the conclusion that ne had
sunk and was drowned. As they were at
one time standing on the very tree be
neath which ho was concealed, Brady, un
derstanding their language, was very glad
to hear the result of their deliberations
and after they had gone, weary, lame and
fmngry, ho made good his retreat to his
own home. His followers also all return
.ed in safety. The chasm across which he
Jeaped is in sight of the bridge where we
crossed the Cuyahoga, and is known in all
that region by the name of Brady's Leap.
A STEW DROP GAME.
New York sharpers are famous for then
adroitness in “raising the wind;” but the
following specimen of Western knavery is
rather ahead of New York in that line of
business. The Seymour Times says :
A man of genteel appearance, with car
pet sack in hand, taking it afoot,
along the public Square in Lexington,
Scott county, Indiana, and when crossing
the square, dropped dead, to all appear
ance. Everybody ran, medical aid was
called, rubbing commenced, tha stranger
still slept, and was very stiff; to all appear
ance his limbs were paralyzed so that he
could hot be raised without the limbs giv
ing way. “Bleed him !’■ sateral hallooed;
the man comes to all at',once; looks wild.
Voice in crowd —“Who are . you
“Where did you come from ?” He pulls
out a slate and pencil, and writes:—“l

am making my way home ; am out of mo
ney; I live in Cleveland, Ohio.” Sympa
thy runs high ; the crowd make him a pony

Befit, nine miles; drops again; everybody
is alarmed; comes to; tells ho-is out of
money; they make him up a pony-purse;
the Doctor takes him hoifie and gives him
something', to eat; off he goes again to

The SclioolmsMter’* In tliat Bed.
■v r: A correspondent'ofthe New York
"Weekly gives the as one of the
many incidehts that; befell a “boarding
round schoolmaster:’?! c’ t
; I had been teaching, in Mason county#
in this Sucker State;; 4ud this term
boarding round. Oaebyening after school,
one of my little scholairl Stepped up to me
and said : | .’
‘.‘• .Mr.,. Jones, fathom said you would
come home with me/'i t i
'“Very well,” I replied,, and forthwith
set out for my patron's house, which was
distant some two miles;, iKow, be it known,
James M’Harry—for such was bis name
—had two daughters, the pride and envy
of the whole community I had heard so
much about them that I Was naturally anx
ious to see them. It seemed however that
I was to be disappointed. When we arri
ved, 1 learned the “gaia” had gone to a
party the other aide Of the creek j so I
went to bed cursine the luck which depri
ved mo of seeing them that night. The
night had well advanced, when I heard
one of the girls, come home, anti passing
into the, adjoining roomj was warming be
fore some coals which were ''alive bn the.
hearth. It seems that the old- lady and
gentleman slept in the; same room, but I
was not aware of 'it until then. Having
warmed herself, she tiu'hed to leave the
room, when the old man'spoke :
“Girls,” said he, bthc.schoolmaster’s in
your bed ”
“Very well,” said Sayah, and passing
the room I slept jin, wont up stairs.
About an hour elapsed, when I heard Ju
dy, the other one, come.:; She stood at the
door a longtime, talkingwith her “feller,”
then entered softly. Disrobing her feet,
she .entered the room wl|ere 1 lay, in her
stocking feet, carefully undressed herself,
and coding to the side bf the bed pre
pared to get in. Now that I
lay in the middle, and -turning back the
clothes, she gave mo a shake and said, in
a suppressed whisper : ?
“Lay over Sarah””
1 r t>Hed over, and whipped the corner
of the pillow into my mbuth to keep, me
from laughing. In she bounced, but the
bed would speak. The old man heard it:
and cried out; ?
“Judy I” ! i
“Sir !” was responded;?: in a faint tone
from the bed beside mp. ||
“ The schoolmaster is ifi that Led /”
With one loud yell amf “oh, heavens,”
she landed on the floor, £tnd fled.with the
rapidity of a deer up stairs. She never
heard the last of it, 1 can tell you; but
probably she “learned something” about
“staying out late sparking/ 'and trying to
slip in unbeknown tb the bid folks.

THE DUTY AND RESPONSIBILITY
1 1 OP A TEACHER.
Butty of D. R. William*, read Inf ore the Logan
, Teaehert* Irutitute , Dee. 24<A, 1869.
‘ It is ill fact Universally admitted that
;ppon the proper mental and moral train.
*?g of the youth depends tho prosperity
and perpetuity ofthisgrcat Republic. If
this be true, which I presume scarcely any
one would doubt, how vastly important is
'it that those who assume the positions of
rneutal disciplinarians should consider well'
the importance of the duty and the weight
of the responsibility, which devolve upon
them in that capacity. It seems to me,
that the duty of att individual who is about
to enter upon the profession of teaching,
should bo first, to enquire what the nature
and responsibility of its duties are, and,
secondly, to ascertain whether he or she
possesses the requisite qualifications for
the oP those
The importance of a duty edn only bo
properly estimated by the 1 significance of
the consequence which results from the *
performance or uon-pcrformauoo of that
duty. That the spiritual, as. well as the
temporal, destiny of an individual greatly,
if not entirely, depends upSh tho early
mental and moral culturo he receives, is a
2>ostulatum soobvionaas to preclude the
necessity of further, argument tp prove it.
Admitting this principle, then how impor
tant the duty and how weighty the respon
sibility of a teacher. V -
But, it may be asked, what has a school
teacher to do with the spiritual destiny of
a child ? Docs hot the duty of moral
trainings wholly devolve upou«tho parents
and the minister? I answer, no. ' Tho '
teacher has a great deal to do in. the mat
ter. The principal intellectual training pf
the youth of our cquntry is confided to the
teachers of our schools. It is fair' thorer
fore, to that they can and do ex
ert a powerful influence for good pr evil
upon the minds of the youthi. It is a fact,
.well established by experience; that the
first impressions made upon the mind of a
child, whether they be right pr wfotig, true
or false, are far iiioroenduringthaq those
made in manhood. One wrong idea, in
culcated In the mind of a child, by an in
judicious teacher, may not only inflict up
on the child a mental wound, bulmayprb
duce a moral cancer which shall prey upon
that mind not only in time, but alsw
through eternity. JT6 man; in my opin'-
ion, has any moral right to assume thepm
of a teachqr who has notil^self
undergone a tolera-bly thorough course of
mental and moral Allow me to
prove tho correctness of this assumption
