A STORY OF THE,. PLAINS,
We were seated around our camp.
fire in the latter part of September,
18G8, munching our "bard tack" and
drinking our coffee with as much un-:
concern as though such a thing as a,
Cam:inch° or Cheyenne was never
known to exist,4hougl of course wo
had "posted" a sentry at dusk, and we
could hear his measured, tread as be
passed to and fro where 'lye were sit
Ling, pat °oily biding his time to be re
lieved aid join us.
We had been on mart duty for soy
eral'weeks,, and wereiiinging to,get"
back to our company Where we could
once more enjoy easy duty and Com-
Ibrtuble quarters. Ova more duly.
would bring us into the cherished "ha
ven artist," and We were soldier fashion
enjoying our humble fare, and specit
hating on the probability of oar being
ordered off again.
There were seven of ' ua. Corporal
names; Privates Burns, Jones, David
son, Lane, McNeil, and myself, all be
longing to Company L—,* 87th' U. S.,
Infantry, and all true types of the
Amon jean soldier, careless, good na
tured and independent fellows, ,. Da
vidson was on t "post,',', and. in - an
hour more would he relieved 'by 'lle-
We'had camped about 4 o'clock, hat ,
•, • •
lag Made a long Art tob during the day,
and it being the only desirable camp
ing place we would ho likely, to find
for several mileS farther:
We were surrounded on all sides'hy
the coarse rank' ljutralu gitt2s,"about:
;he height, of a man's bad
not been burned, owing teekdnie cause
or other, and - We were neeessarily care
, not' igniting it. The evening
was warm and pleasant', and but foi;
the necessity of cooking our coffee
• t•, ,
culla( cat-ify have dispensed with a fire.
As the evening advanced the sur
rounding prairies became discordant
with the wild wailing'l noise of the
coyotes and wolves; but experience
had learnAl us that we had nothiit to
tear from these animals. The only
creature we had to 'fear on that wild
expanse was an animal more cunning
and Jar more blood thirMy than the
wolf; an animal that would dog . your
tracks day after day, week after week
only watiddhg his opportunity to steal
upon you and send an arrow through
you, or confronting you in superior
numbers, endeavor to stampede your
animals when he would have you at
his mercy. God save the mark. Such
is the nature of the Catnauehe Indian
the much abused, and to be pitied "no
ble red man of the forest."
We had seen no "sigus" , of Indians
since starting from Fort. , , and
were congratulating ourselves on get
ting back without -losing our
when, that evening before camping,
Corporal Haines, (an old soldier and a
careful and prudent noncommissioned
officer.) had spied two horseman on
the Bluffs, some two or three miles to
our left. lie had directed our atten
tion to there, but before we could dis
cover them they had disappeared be
the lulls and were seen no more.
Seine of the boys tried to persuade the
Corporal that ho had been deceived,
but the wary fellow declared ho had
not, and kept his own counsel
By tho time we had reached CaMp
the circumstance had nearly been for
gotten, rind only a slight reference
had been made, to it during the even
ing. Corporal Haines' had, however.
on posting the sentry, imposed the ut
most vigilance on him, and instructed
him to call him on the slightest ap
pearance of danger. We were think
in, of rolling ourselves in our blankets
and going to sleep, 'when we were star
tled by the sharp and quick challenge
of Davidson, who was still on post,,
Who 'comes there ?" We were all on
our ffiet in an instant, and our 'arms
iu our hands. Davidson was standing
about twenty paces from the tiro with
his piece at it charge. Receiving no
ansa!er to his challenge, he brhught
his gun to his shoulder and fired. Only',
a wolfish yell was the rdply, and wo
could all see something to, all' appear
acres Wit) of those animals trot off
among the grass, passing within a foie
yards of us. Some of us would have
fired at it but was toibid to do sd by
the Corporal, as he said it' was not
worth a shot, calling out:' at the same
tune Davideon'with some impatience
"If he did not know the difference
tween a coyote and an Inilitin. DaVid
son replied, that • they might laugh at•'
him it they choose, but thai.lt was no
coyote, but a man that he had fitted at,
that hearing a slight rustling 'in the
grass" he h ad intently watched 'it and
seen something rise the height of a
man, and that when he' had challenged!'
it had dropped again and he had, fired
and bad seen it drop." 'lle wits knbwn•

Not so the Corporal. Knowing the
carelessness and imcompetency of Mc-
Neil he wrapt his blanket around him,
and sitting down “ew paces from tho
fire witti . his rifle in hip hand, watched
and listened intently. McNeil appar
ently not noticing him kept on his beat
and walking; rapidly to and fro took
little heed of what passed around him.
Suddenly when at the end of his
beat,' and about twenty yards froni
where Haines was sitting, and the
moment-ho turned to retrace his steps,
a form rose from the long grass and
springing on him before he could ut

came too laid. A shower of arrows
and the discharge of two or three fire
arms was the only reply, and Burns;
fell pierced through the body by ati

of affairs we all.threw ourselves on the
ground and awaited the coining of the
savages. But they were too cunning
to be caught in that, way, as it would

them, and some hard tugging at the

HUNTINGDON, Feb. 22,1860. ,
Messrs. 'Editors :—To-day is the one
hundred and thirty-seventh anniver
sary of the birth-day of George Wash
ington. Though 1. am net writing for ,
him a memoir, I only wish to give to
your reader's 'an untarnished history
of my wanderings from Saturday un
til Monday evening, through the
mountainous vales of beauty that girt
the vision along the Huntingdon and
Broad Top Railroad. Yet, on the day'
in which I write—a day sacred to all
Americans—a day in which we should
all pay our annual tribute, to the mem
ory of Washington, let feelings of lOve,
respect, 'admiration and veneration fill,
our breasts for him who in the dark
days of the revolution, through eight
long years of weary strife, in success
and defeat, led our noble band of he
rpes until victory, secure and perma
nent, rested upon their banners, and
who, as helmsman, afterwards guided
the ship of state so successfully through
the turbulent - waters of that period—
Americans bound for Europe, and
fresh from her shores, will bid yod look
to the AlO and the Andes to see their
snow-white summits, and ask - you in.
admiration and awe to reverence Na'
tare. May we not ask our immediate
neighbors to look around them—even
those who have been lured to a foreign'
shore may we not ask. them all to
look to the illustrious , venerated and
beloved scenes around them, and come,
home and do reverence to all the
scenes that are incident to human life
—the ecienes that bid us live, and look
beyond the turmoils of life and east
our gaze, iu faith, beyond the deep lin--
perial that spans our sited and meas
- On Saturday, the'
20th, I' left: Hunt

associations of bygone days, and pluck
from their veins the mystic grape, the
juice, of which setids thraldont to the
human 'breast, and amidst our joys,
pleaSures and vicissitudes causes the
pulse to vibrate, and bid welcome to
its scenes of association all tho piety,
all the gratitude and love that an err
ing people can bestow. Wore there
no evil in thiS picture, wore there no
lamentations and woo, we would come
home and twine around our hearts the
beating anguish of a heart made deso
late by its own aspirings; and yet, at
times, permitted to soar amidst its own
aspirings to love, hope and charity.
Since Christ assumed humanity—:
though rich, yet poor, and had not
where to lay his head—poverty has,
become dignified, and assumed an in-,
dependence which the favored and un 4
favored alike gaze upon with admira
tion and respect. You may deem mo
extravagant; no matter. Tra7el the
Huntingdon and Broad Top Railroad
from Huntingdon to Dudley;
take foot and travel to Traugh Creek's
dilated valley, amidst scenes of storm
or sunshine—scenes picturesque and
romantic—vales undulated and lus
trous—and you will see Broad,Top's

while below sheep graze upon her hills,
cattle pick their sustenance, the plow

houses dot the surface, and many chur

heaven, evineing.that God, too,•reigns,
