BY MRS. EMI:LINE S. SMITH
The incident about to be related, is
ono of many similar ones, which oc
curred during the early settlement of
America. Those who sought a home
in the savage wilds, which then cover
ed the land, wedded themselves to a
life of peril and hardship. The dangers
which continually threatened them,
called forth all the heroic qualities of
their nature,and their lives were mark
ed by many a lofty deed of daring
and devotion. Such deeds should not
sink into oblivion, for they belong to
the history of our country, and as such,
should be recorded and remembered.
We would present a picture to the
imagination of the reader. There is a
broad and beautiful stream, with its
deep, still waters, flowing on between
banks covered by luxuriant foliage;
and its bright surface dotted here and
there with fairy little isles, where
graceful shrubs and fragrant flowers
bud and blossom undisturbed in wild
and lonely loveliness. Bright-plumed
birds, of many varieties, are winging
their way over the quiet water, and
the surrounding scene echoes with
their tuneful minstrelsy. On the bor
ders of the river, at the edge of a forest
that stretches for away over hill and
dale, stands the rude but picturesque
dwelling of a backwoodSman; with
the blue smoke curling up from its low
ly roof, and its humble walls glancing
out from the green foliage that sur
rounds them. There are some indica
tiona of mate and refineinent near the
woodman's home, which save a cheer
ful appearance to that, otherwise wild
and lovely scene. A graceful vine cur-
tains the lowly window, and many
bright flowers, natives of a distant soil,
shed their grateful perfume around.
Near the door hangs a cage, containing
a rare and beautiful bird, whose song
of gladness breaks sweetly upon the
stillness of that solitary place.
On a low seat at the entrance of the
dwelling, is seen a young woman car
essing an infant. She has lost the
blooming loveliness of early youth—
her cheek is pale, and her brow wears
that thoughtful expression which is
imprinted by the touch of care; yet she
is still beautiful in form and feature,
and none may look upon her without
admiration. As she bonds over the
child in her arms ; her eye fills with
that unutterable tenderness and love
which are only seen in the eye of a
mother, and whieb make the face of a
beautiful woman almost angelic. Now
and then she turns from the child, to
send an anxious glance towards the
forest, as if she watched for the ap
proach of some one from that direction.
She iA momentarily expecti ng her hus
band. lle left his home at morn ; the
hour appointed for his return had pass
ed away ; the shadows of the tree are
lengthening in the rays of the setting
sun, and yet he comes not. The fond
wife begins to tremble for his safety—
a fearful forebodin , b of evil steals over
her mind, and the dark dread of some
approachinj, calamity haunts her imag
She has reason to fear ; for that por
tion of country was, at this time, the
theatre of many a tragic scone. Some
times the woodman, in penetrating too
far into the pathless recesses of the
forest, lost his way, and wandering for
days in the dreary wilderness, suffer
ing many miseries, and perishing at
last by the pangs of hunger. Some
times the wily red man, who yet lurk
ed about those lonely wilds, entrapped
the while hunter, and, from a spirit of
revenge, or the-thirst for blood, sacri
ficed his victim with the most wanton
and barbarous cruelty.
As the anxious wife thought of these
things, her fears and forebodings be
came almost insupportable. Hushing
the infant to sleep, she carried it into
the dwelling, and deposited it in his
cradle bed. She then hastened 'forth
again, and wandered along the path
that led to the forest, anxiously look•
ing forward the while for her husband.
She walked on warn for some time,
fondly hoping, to see the object, of her
search, but her hopes wete vain, and
sending one more searching glance
around, and seeing nothing but the
gloomy shadows of the trees, she turn
ed with a heavy heart to retrace her
steps. As she was proceeding home
ward, a sudden fear for her child,whom
she had loft alone, crossed her mind;
and caused her to hasten forward.
Drawing nearer to the dwelling, this
fear became so intense, that it amoun
ted almost to a conviction Of some ter
rible calamity. 'Flying, rather than
walking she reached the house, and
sprang to the cradle—it was empty,
and' the child nowhere to be 4'een !
With frantic eagerness she rushed to
the back door of the dwelling, which
she had left closed, and Which she' now
found was open: She was just in time
to see a party of Indians Maldng rap_
idly to the wools. Her heart whir _
pored the fearful assurance that they
bore away its treasure. Here WaS

less woman--her husband afar off—
perhaps in peril—her child—her first
horn, and only one, torn away by the
rude hand of a savage—dread night
approaching, and no earthly arm to
Without pausing for reflection, the
mother flew along the path which the
Indians had taken. Now and then she
caught a glimpse of their forms as they
moved rapidly through the trees, but
as the twilight deepened and surround
ing objects became morn indistinct,
that slight comfort was 'denied her, and
she traced - her gloomy pathway with
out knowing whether or riot it would
bring her nearer the object of her pur
suit. Yet she paused not a moment
in indecision, but hastened onward
through the increasing darkness, un
conscious of the uncertainty of her
search, and the wildness of her expe
dition. She had but one thought—ono
hope; and that was to be near her
child—to save it, if it could bo saved,
or perish with it, if perish it must.
Strong in this determination, she push
ed forward, thoughtless of fatigue, and
fearless of peril. As the night advan
ced, the wind rose and sighed among
the trees with a mournful and heart
chilling sound. The stars, that had
hitherto shed a faint light through the
branches, were now veiled in black
clouds, that seemed to presage a storm,
and ever and anon the shrill croaking
of a night bird, or the prolonged howl
of some beast of prey, was borne to the
ear of the unhappy wanderer, waking
fearful thoughts, and warning her of
the dangers by which she was sur
Those who have never roamed in ft
forest at midnight, can scarcely realize
how much that is terrifying is connect
ed with such a journey. At ono time,
the howl of the hungry wolf will burst
so suddenly and clearly on the ear
that we can scarcely persuade our
selves the monster is not close at our
side—at another, the falling of. a de
cayed branch will produce such a loud
and fearful sound, that we deem it the
fatal plunge which must doom us to
destruction. Now the wind will come
with a fitful and moaning cadence, so
like the human voice, that we for an
instant, believe it the wail of' an ago
nized being—and again it will sweep
by with a rushing sound like a troop of
enraged monsters bent on a mission of
death. Sometimes an unseen, low
drooping branch will softly touch the
shoulder, congealing the warm current
of life with the idea that a spectral
hand has suddenly arrested our pro
gress; and again a black and blasted
tree, with ono or two sere branches
protruding from its side, will, for an
instant still the pulsation of the heart,

I stretching forth its arms to grasp our
All this, and more, must one feel

the mother endured as she pursued
her almost hopeless enterprize. She
had traveled far, very far, for the
darkness of night, and the intricacies
of the wood," had scarcely lessened the
speed with which she commenced her
walk, and she had been many hours
on the way. Weariness was begin
ning to overcome her—hope was de
parting from her heart, and despair
chilling all her energies, when she dis
covered afar off through the trees, a
light. It was but a feeble glimmer,
yet oh I how it irradiated the path of
the wanderer. The instant she beheld
it, hope sprung back to her heart, and
strength invigorated her frame. That
fitint and far off ray seemed the light
of returning happiness, and she wateh•
ed it as eagerly as the mariner watch
es the star which guides him over
ocean's stormy waves. She now
toned onward with redoubled energy,
and though her stops sometimes falter
ed, and her heart sunk within her, as
the light disappeared behind some
tervening Object, she still kept her eye
steadily in the direction of the beacon,
and soon gained a position where it
shone brightly before her, and could
approach without losing sight of it
again. As she drew near, r•he gazed
upon the scene which that light re
vealed, with mingled feelings of aston•
ishment, hope and fear.
There was a large . fire built of the
dried branches of trees, and around it
lay the dusky forms of five (ft six In
(thins, reposing upon the ground.
Their appearance was savage in the
extreme; each with his painted feath
ers lighted by the fitful glare of the
fire, and his tomahawk and scalping
knife gleaming at his side. Near them
were implemor.ts of hunting, and
around the fire lay scattered bones
and fragments of a recent rude and
hasty repast. The whole Scene was
calculated to strike terror into the
heart of the delicate being who gazed
But she scarcely saw the rude sava•
ges or their implements of death, for
her whole soul was absorbed in .con—
templating a Portion of the scene
which we have not yet described, and
which riveted her attention with a
thrilling . and Magic power. Bound to
a tree, has the form of her hushand';
and at his feet on the cold ground, lay
her child. The father's faceovas pale,
and stained with blood ; "the infant's
was covered by its dross, and its form
was motionless as if chilled by the cold
hand of death. How felt the fond wife
and mother when that sight of horror
met her eyes? :Repressing by a migh
ty effort the shriek of agony that rose
to her lips, and conquering, by the
strength of a heroic soul, the almost
irresistible desire Ellie felt to rush for
ward, and clasp those der ones to her
aching heart, she stood gazing upon
the scene with feelings which cannot
be described. She saw with a throb
of sudden joy, that. her husband lived,

but her heart grew cold again as she
watched the motionless form of her
child. She longed to fly to its side,
and ascertain the truth, for the sus
pense that preyed upon her spirits
were terrible, but again her" resolute
mind restrained her, and she began to
deliberate upon the situation of her
husband, and devise, means for releas
ing him. •
The vivid light cast by the fire on
all things near it, enabled the wife to
noto the scene distinctly. She saw,
with a thankful heart, that the sava
ges all slept, and that she could reach
the side of her husband without pass—
ing near enough to awake them; but
she also saw that ho was bound by.
strong cords, which she could not
hope, in her wearied state, to unfasten,
and she looked about for something to
sever them. There was nothing, save
the knives which the Indians woro at
their sides. Looking more intently,
she saw that ono of these had slipped
from its place, and lay on the ground
by its owner,so near, that his band
almost touched the hilt. A pang of in
tense fear shot through her fra.me,when
she thought of approaching so close to
the terrific form of the savage, but
another look upon the pale face of the
prisoner, re-assured her, and she de
termined to rescue him, or . perish in
the attempt. She could not approach
the Indians without revealing herself
to the eyes of her husband, and she
feared, in that case, an exclamation of
surprise would follow her appearance,
and rouse the foe from their slumber.
After pondering a moment upon the
best mode of proceeding, she determin
ed to steal softly to the back of the
tree, place her hand upon the lip of
the captive, whisper a few words of
exclamation, and implore hjm, not by
the slightest murmur, to frustrate her
plans. With a throbbing heart, she
commenced her perilous undertaking.
Noiselessly she made her way to the
tree, and accomplished her purpose.
There was no time for delay, yet one
instant the mother turned to look up
on her child, yearning to clasp it to
her bosom, but not darinu b to lift the
cloth which concealed its features, and
assure herself whether or not it lived.
A little while before, she would have
given worlds to be le to do this, but
now she felt that to behold it wrapred
in the slumber of death would unnerve
her arm, and render her unfit for the
further prosecution of her trying task.
With a firmness that would have done
honor to a stoic, she conquered the
promptings of natural love, and hast
ened away. With a step as' noiseless'
as the falling dew, she glided towards
the snmbering savages ; as she drew
near, her frame trembled so violently,
she could scarcely support herself;
and when she put forth her hand to
take the knife, the beating of her heart
was'so audible, she feared it would
awake the sleepers, and she pressed
her hand convulsively upon it to still
its tumultuous throbbings. One ter
rible instant she thought the eyes of
the Indian opened, and glared upon
her with a fierce and malignant ex
pression • but this was mere fancy, for
still slept, and the next moment
she was glidin g away with the knife
firmly grasped in her hand. With a
few rapid strokes she liberated her hus
band, and then bent down and uncov
ered the child. To her unspeakable
joy, she found it in a slumber as sweet
and peaceful as though it had been
hushed to rest upon its mother's bo
ttom. With a prayer of gratitude up
on her lips, she lifted it from its rest
ing place, turned to her companion,
and motioned the way to their home.
With rapid 'and noiseless steps they
.hurried away, speeding onward with
tremulous yet hopeful hearts. Not a
moment did the fond mother spare to
caress her infant—not a word did she
utter to greet her husband. The spell
of a new found, uncertain happiness
had settled upon her spirit, and.
shefeared to break its thrilling
charm. For a time they travelled
thus in silence and darkness; moving
as near as they could judge, in the di
rection of their home, and anxious to
be: farther, WI farther away from
their enemies. At, length weariness
compelled them to rest awhile, and,
as the dawning day began to shed a
trembling light abroad, they crept in
to a thicket and sought reprise.
The beams of the rising sun lighted
the wanderers on their homeward path
way; and when that sun was sinking
to repose, its parting rays fell calmly
over the woodman's humble home, re
vealing a scene of bliss such as seldom
visits the abode of man. How radiant
with grateful joy was the face of the
fond mother, as she clasped her recov
cred treasure closer to her bosom; how
full of admiring love was the eye of
the rescued husband, as it, rested up
on its preserver; and oh 1 I ow warm
and fervent was the prayer, breathed
in that hour of safety, bearing np to
[Leaven the deep devotion of thankful
and happy hearts.

of its Provisions.
The Supplementary Reconstructiort
bill has finally passed both Houses of
Congress; and, has gone to the Presi

sary machinery for parrying out thQ
general plan of reconstruction adopted
by tho last Congress. It provides that,
beforo the first dpy of September next;
the Commanding, General--in each of
the districts under the Reconstruction
law passed last session, shall cause a
registration to be made of the legal
voters under that act, and . who shall
have taken and subscribed an' oath tp
the effect that they are citizens of full
ago, have never been disfranchised for
participation in any rebellion or civil
war against the United States—have
never, as United States or State. WA
cers, taken an oath to support thil
Constitution of the United States, or
held a civil office in any, State, and
afterwards engaged in rebellion or in
surrection against the United States--,
and that they will support and defend
the Constitution of the United States.
That, after the completion of the
registration in any State, an election,
of - which at least thirty days' notice
shall have been given, shall be held, at
such time as the commanding General
shall direct, for delegates to 'frame o f
Constitution and civil government for.
the State loyal to the Union. At that
election the qualified voters shall also
vote on the question whether a Con- .
vention shall be held or pa l and no,
Convention shall be held unless a 'Ma,
jority of the registered voters shall
have voted upon that question, and a
majority of those so voting shall have
voted in favor of holding a Conven

cers or persons in each election dis
trict to malc:e registration of the voters;
superintend the election, and make re=
turn to him of the vote and of the
persons elected, . He shall then make .
proclamation of the result, and, within
sixty days after the election, shall no
tify the delegates to assemble at
place named, and, on a day fixed; to
frame a constitution. The Convention,.
when organized, shall first determine
by a vote whether-it is the wish of the
people .of • the State .to frame a
a constitution and civil government in,
,conformity with the provisions of the
act, and if it is,
shall then proceed to.
frame the constitution, 'which, when
framed shall be submitted for ratifica
tion to the registered voters of the
State, at in election to be held by the
officers appointed by-the commanding
general for the election of members of.
the Convention; the returns, as before,
to be made to him.
That if the Constitution shall have

votes of the qualified electors, the
President of the Convention shall
transmit a certified copy of the same.
to the President of the United States,
who shall forthwith transmit it to
Congress, Win session, or if not, imme•
diately upon its reassembling; and if
Congress shall declare the same to be
in conformity with the provisions of
the Reconstruction act, and shall be.
satisfied that all the registered voters.
had an opportunity to vote without
hindrance or intimidation, and that it
meets their approval, the State shall,
be declared entitled to representation,
