of the most darin? chinfi nnQ rY
whom we remember of having read, was
an Algonquin or Adirondack. This tribe
of Indians, at tho time of the first settle,
ment of Canada, wero found upon the
banks ol the St. Lawrence.
They were once a warlike and power
ful peoplo; but were finally conquered bv
tho Iroquois or Tive Nations, with whom
they were continuallyj.it war.
The Trois llivierc or Threo Rivers
was tho scene of a most signal defeat,
from which the Algonquins never rccov
crcd. 1 he clncltan to whom we havo alluded,
whoso namo was l'askaret, could never
forget the stain which tho victories of the
Iroquois had left upon his people, and
w ith four of his boldest warriors devoted
himself to what ho considered the sacred

that live canoes havo gor,3 up the Three

Anain tho four nvengers shouted with
-.'.i.Mnv. Tho Alcomiuins commencod

exerted himself to procuro muskets of tho
largest calibre, and of tho most approved
mnkc. He uld his favorito horse, nnd
ninny things most highly esteemed, to
provide iho necessary outfit for himself
All was nt length in readiness. The
musket! were obtained nnd loaded with
two balls each, nnd in a manner highly
satisfactory to Paskarct.
Tho nvenndrs stepped into a canoo of
I largo dimen.-ions, nnd in excellent spirits
! paddled away up the Trois Riviere. A day

nothing of their enemies.
Eurly in tho morning, ihcy found them
selves near iho spot where Iho futal battlo

Iroquois lords of tho country.

The nvengers rested on their raddles.
and looked seowlinyly on tho scene of the
coninci, which still presented evidence
that a battlo had been Ibu'dit there.
"This is tho spot where tho Altionouins
suffered everlasting shame," said ono of
tho avengers, in u low voice.
"JJo not speak of it," replied Paskarct,
in husky tones. "It covers mo with con
fusion. Hut who knows," ho added vehe
mently, his eyes flushing fire, "but wc
may wash out tho disgrace upon this very
spot, nnd win eternal renow n !"
The words of tho daring chieftnn seem
ed prophetic. Cefore iho echoes of his
voico rmd ceased, five canoes, containing
in nil fifty Iroquois, swept into sight by
turning an nbrupt bend in tho river.
"Imitate me," said Paskarct, in a low
voice, "and don't firo till I give the
word;" nnd iho wily chief commenced
singing his death-song, as though he had
resigned himself to inevitable death. His
warriors immediately followed his exam
ple, suffering the Iroquois to approach
without making n single effort to escape.

horrible shouts ofsavaee exultation. They

Among this crowd the stranger's business

A Dnop of Oil. Every man who livts
in a house, should oil all tho various parts
of it once in two or three month. Tiio
I house- will Inst much longer, and wnl be
mucn more quiet 10 live in. un tno locus,
bolts nnd hinges of tho street door, and it
will shut gently with luxurious ease, und
with tho use of a small amount of force.
A neglected lock requires great vio
lence lo cause it to shut, and with so much
violenco that tho wholo house, its doors,
its windows, its very floors and joists, ore
much shaken, and in tune they get out ol
repairs in all sorts of ways, to say nothing
ol the dust that is displaced every timo the
place is so shaken. The incessant bang
ing of doors, screeching of locks, creaking
and screaming of hinges, is a great dis
comfort. Even tne bell wiro cranks
should sometimes be oi!ul, and they will
net more certainly and with such gentle
force thnt there will Ixt little danger of
break;ng any part of them. The castors
of tables and chairs should bo sometimes
oiled, and they will move with such gen
tle impulse and s rpiietly that a flopping
child or old man is not awakened. A well
