ishOle scene is :one, el gloomy solitude.
asSocivied as it is With one of the most
cruet inapacres i-hich, ever disgraced
the. American arms. i . ' •• .
IThe fort.had originally ,iseen- erected
by . civilized troops, and, when eban.
doned by its occup'ahis at theicloie'd
;he war, in 1615. it was, taken posse.-
sion of by the "refugees from Georgia- ?
But little is yet known of that petrectited
peopte.; their hisfOrY can •bnly be found
in the national archive's 'at
• Washington;
They • had been held as slaves , in the.
,State referred to; but. during the Revo
lution they caught - the spirit of Liberty,
at tha time to prevalent throughout our
land a nd tfled.froin .their oppress-rs and
found n asylum dmong the. abOrigines
living in Florida. . ,
During forty years they hid efFestually I
eluded, or resisted, all attempts to re en- I
slave them.. They were true to them
selves, to the instinctive• love of liberty
which is planted in every human heart.
'ost or thein had been born amidst
perils; reared in the forest, and taught
from their childhood to hate the oppress
ors.of their race. Most of those who
had been personally held in degrading
servitude, whose backs had been seared I
by the lash of the y savage overseer, had
passed AD that ririt-land where the
clanking of chaino not heard,—where
slavery is not knot Some few of that
class yet remained. Their gray hairs
an I feeble limbs, however, indicated
that 'they, too, must soon pass away.
Of - the three-hundred and eleven per
icAs 'residing' in Blount's Fort," not
more than twenty had been actually held
in-servitude. 'The others were descend;
ed from slave parents, who fled from
G.mrgia, and, according to the laws of
slave States, were liable to suffer 'the
warns-outwes to which their ancestors
had been subjected. -
_ It is : a most singular feature in slave
holding metals, - that if the parents• be
robbed of theit' liberty, deprived of the
'rights with which their Creator has en
dowed them, the proriefor - of these
wrongs becomes eritled`. to rep'eat them
upon the. children of their former vie
' time. There were also some few pa
rents and grandchildren, as well as mid
dle-aged personi,who sought protection
. within the walls:of the. Fort againit the
vigilant alive-catchers. whn occasionally
were seen prowling around the Intifica
tions,,but who dare not venture within power'of those whom they sought'to
enalave. .
'these fugitives ..had planted their
gardens, and Some of them had flocks
.;roaming in - the wilderness; all were en
joying the fruits cf their labor, add con
gratulating themselves .upon being safe
from the attacks of those who enslave
metikind.'Butthe.spirit,of oppression
is inexorable. The slaveholderi finding
they, could not themselves obtain
session 'of their TiCt.lllB, called on the
- President of the United States 'for assist
eisca'fo perpetrate the crime of enslaving
their fellow' rnen. The functionary had

On,the morning of the : 17th:10{1Sep:-

upon the waII Of that ifiitres - 4,rOutthlog
with intense interest.,the .app_roach, - Of
mu. small • repels that , were slowly est.

furled their. sails and 'cast anchor oppo
site the Fort, some four or five hundred
yards distant from it. ' ' '
. .
A. boat was loirered, and, soon mid
ship Man and twelve men were observed
making for the shore. They. -were
met at_the water's edge by some half
dozen of the - principal men in the - Fort,
and their errand demanded;
• The young- officer told thern.he was
sent to make demand of the Fort; and
'that its inmates were to' be given up to
the .t s!aveholders. then on betard the
gun : boot, who claimed them as fugitive
slaves !" The &mend was instantly
rejected, and the midshipman and his
men , returned to the gun-boat and in
formed I.ieut. Loomis of the answer he
had' received.
As the colored men entered the Fort
and related to their companions the de
mand that had been made, great was
the consternation manifested by the fe
males, and even a portion of . thessterner
sex appeared to be distressed •-at their
situation. 'This was observed by arrold
patriarch, who had drunk the bitter cup
of aervitude,—one-Who bore on ,his- per
son the visible marks• of • the thong- 4 as
:Well its the brand of his master, uponi
his shoulder.. He saw his friends fal
tered, and he spoke cheerfully to them.
He assured them that they were:safe
frorri the :cannon 'shbt of the eneley,—
, that there were not men eriou,gh.on boird
the vessels to storm. tlteir Fort, and
finally closed With the emphatic deelara
tion: Give Me liberty, or .give. me
death !" :estyin,g was repeated by
i many agonized fathers tied mothers
during that bloody day. • .
A cannonade was, soon • comnieneed
upon the Fort, .but , without much ap
parent etlect. The shots were harm
less ; they penetrated the earth of which
the walls were composed, and were then
buried, withoUt further' injury. Some
two hours were thus sent 'without in.
juring any person in the Fort. They
then commenced throwinTbombs. The
bursting of these shells bad more effect.
There was no shelter - . from these' fatal
messages. Mothers gather/ their little
