We do not know that we can fill a
column more profiNiltdy, than by re
lating an adven.tureeof our neighbor
and friend Mr. Higgins, as we have
heard it from his own mouth. He
resides within a few miles of Vanda
lia, and receives a pension from the
United States for his services. Mr.
Higgins is a man of strict veracity ;
his companions _have corroborated
his narrative, and his wounds afford
ample proof of his courage and suf
Tom Higgins, as ho is usually call

one of the best examples extant of
the genuine backwoods-man. During

of mounted men, raised expressly for
the protection of the western fron
tier. On the 30th of August 1814,
he vas one of a party of twelve men
under the command of Lieutenant
Journey, who were posted at Hill's
Station, a small stockade, about eight
miles south of the present village of
Greenville, and something more than
twenty miles from Vandalic. • These
towns were not then in existence;
and the surrounding country was one
vast wilderness. During the day
last mentioned-, Indian signs were
seen about half a mile from the Sta
tion, and at night they were seen
prowling near the fort, but no alarm
was given. On the following morn
ing early, Mr. Journey moved out
with his party in pursuit of the In
dians. Passing around the fence of
a cornfield adjoining the fort, they
struck across the prairie, and had
not proceeded more than a quarter
of a mile, when in Crossing a small
which was covered with a ha
zel thicket, and in full view of the
station, they fell into an ambuscade
of the Indians, who rose suddenly
around them, to the number of 70 or
80, and fired: Four of the party
were killed, among whom was Lieut.
Journey; one other fell badly wound•
ed, and the rest fled, except Higgins.
It was an uncommonly sultry
morning, the day was just dawning;
a heavy dew had fallen the preceding
night, the air was still and humid ;
and the smoke from the guns hung
in a heavy cloud over the spot. Un
der cover of this-cloud, Higgins' sur
viving companions bad escaped, sup.

attempt to rescue them from so over•
whelming a force. Higgins' horse
had been shot through the neck, and
fell to his knees and rose again sev.
oral times. Believing the animal to
be mortally wounded, he dismounted,
but finding that the wound had not
greatly disabled him, he continued •
to held the bridle; for as he now felt
confident of being ale to mike good his
retreat he determined to fire off his gun
before he retired. He looked round for
a tree. There was but one, and he
made for this, intending to shoot from
behind but at this moment the cloud
of smoke•rose partially before . him,
disclosing to his view a number of
Indians, none of whom discovered
him. One of them stood within a
few paces loading his gun, and at him
Higgins took a deliberate aim and
fired, the Indian fell. Mr. Higgins
still concealed by the smoke, re-load
ed his gun, mounted and turned to
fly, when a low voice near him hailed
him with, Tom, you won't leave •me?
On looking round, he discovered the
speaker to be one of his companions
named Burgess, who was lying
wounded on the ground, and he re
plied instantly, no, I'll not leave
you; come along, and I'll take care
of you.
I can't come, replied Burgess, my
leg is smashed all to pieces.
Higgins sprung from his saddle,
and picked up his comrade,
ankle bone was broken, in his arms,
he proceeded to lift him on his horse,
telling him to fly, and that he would
make his way on foot. But the horse
taking fright at this instant, darted
off, leaving Higgins with his wound
ed friend on foot. Still the cool bra
very of the former was sufficient for
every emergency, and setting Bur
gess down gently, he told him now
my good friend, you must hop off on
your three legs, while I stay between
you and the Indians and keep them
off—instructing him at the sometime
to get into the highest grass and
crawl as close to the ground as possi
ble. Burgess followed his advice and
escape , ' unnoticed. History does
not relate a more disinterested act
I of heroism, than this of Higgins, who
having in his hands the certain means
of escape from such imminent danger
voluntarily gave them up, by offering
his horse to a .wounded comrade;
and who when that generous inten
tion was defeated, and his own re
treat was still practicable, remained
at the hazard of his life, to protect
his crippled friend. The cloud of
smoke which had partially . opened
before him as he faced the enemy,
still lay think behind him, as he
plunged this, ho, left it together with
the ridge, and the hazel thicket be
tween him and the main body of the
Indians, and was retiring unobserved
by them. Under these circumstane-
I es ' it is probable that if he had re
treated in a direct lino towards the
station he might easily have affected
his escape; but Burgess was slowly
crawling away in that direction, and
the gallant Higgins, who cooly sur
veyed the whole ground, foresaw. that
if he pursued the same track, Burgess
should be endangered. , He therefore
took the heron resolution of diverg
ing from the rue course, so far, as
that any of tit enemy who should
linger behindvould not fall in with
Burgess. Wth this intention,
he moved stealthily - along
through the saokc and bushes, in
tending when he emerged, to retreat
at, full speed. :But as be left the
thicket, he biheld a large Indian
near him, twctothers on the side in
the direction ofthe fort. Tom coolly
r l
surveyed his ft) , and began to chalk
out hie track, f although fn the con
fidence of his •tivity and courage,
he felt undismayed at such odds, yet
he found it
.neceissary to act the gen
eral. Havinganenemy on each flank,
he determined to separate them and
fight them singly. Liking for a ra
vine, which was not far off, he bound•
ed away, but soon found that one of
his limbs failed him, having received
a ball in the fit.47 - 1,17 - ticeti l l l- lif;
- 11nebr - -I`ad,,ioAß as following him
closely. Higgins several times turn
ed to fire, but the Indian would halt
and dance about - to prevent him from
taking aim; and Tom knew that he
could not afford to fire at random.—
The other two were now close upon
him and he found that unless he
could dispose of the first one he must
be overpowered. He therefore halt
ed determined to receive a fire, and
the Indian, at a few paces distant
raised his rifle, Higgins watched his
adversary's eye, and 'just as he
thought his finger pressed the trig.
ger, suddenly threw his aide to him.
It is probable that this motion saved
his life, for the ball entered his thigh
which would have pierced his body.
Tom fell, but rose again and ran, and
the largest Indian certain of hisprey,
loalled again and then with the two
others, pursued. They soon came
near. Higgins bad fallen, and as he
rose, they all three fired, and he re
ceived all their balls. He now fell
and rose several times, and the In
dians throwing away their guns, ad•
vanced on him with spears and knives.
They frequentlY charged upon him,
but upon his presenting his gun at
one or the other they fell back. At
last the largest Indian thinking prob
ably from Tom's reserving his fire so
long, that his gun was empty, charg
ing boldly up to him; and Higgins,
with a steady aim shot him dead.
With four bullets in his body with
an empty .gun, two Indians before
him, and a whole tribe but a few rods
off, althost any other man would
have despaired.. Bat Tom Higgins
had no such notion. The Indian
whom he had laSt slain was the most

and he knew human nature sufficient.
ly to discover that he was their . su
perior in courage.• He therefore
faced them and began to load his ri
fle. They raised a whoop and rushed
on him. They liept their distance
as long as my rifle was loaded, said
he, but now whefi they knew it was
empty they were better soldiers. A
fierce and .bloody contest ensued..
The Indians rushing upon Tom, stab
bed him in many places; but it hap
pened, fortunately, that the shafts of
their spears were thin poles rigged
hastily for this occasion, which bent
whenever the point struck a rib, or
encountered the opposition of one of
Higgins tough muscles. From 'this
cause and the continual exertion of
his hand and rifle in warding off their
thrusts, the wounds thus made, were
not deep, but his whole front was
covered with gashes of which the
scars yet remain in honorable proof
of his valor. At last one of them
threw his tomahawk ; the edge' sunk
deep in Higgin'a cheek, passing
through his car which it severed, laid
bare his skull to the back of his bead,
and stretched him on the plain; The
Indians rushed on; Tom instantly
recovered his self possetsion and kept
them off with his feet and hands, un
til he succeeded in grasping one of
their spears, which, as the Indians
attempted to pull it from him aided
hi in to rise; and clubbing his rifle
he rushed upon the nearest of his
foes, and dashed his bruins out; in
doing which, he broke the stock to
pieces, retaining only the barrel in
his hand. The other Indian, howev
er warily lie hpf - fitight before, now
came manfully into battle. It is
probable that he felt his character as
a warrior at stake. To have fled
from a man desperately wounded and
almost disarmed, or to have suffered
his victim to escape would have tar
nished his manhood. Uttering a
terrific yell, be rushed on, attenipt
ing to stab the exhausted ranger,
while the latter warded off the blow
with one hand and brandished his rifle
barrel in the other. The Indian un
wounded was now by far the most
powerful man. But the moral Liner: ,
ago of our hero _prevailed, and the
savage, unable to bear the fierce
glance of his untamed eye, began
slowly to retreat towards the place
where he had dropped his rifle: Tom
knew that if the Indian recovered
his gun his own case was hopeless;
and throwing away his rifle barrel,
he drew hie hunting knife, and rush
ed in upon him. A desperate strife
ensued, and several deep gashes wore
inflicted, but the Indian succeedecrin
casting Higgins from him, and ran
to the spot where be had thrown
down his gun, while Tom searched
for the gun of the other Indian. Thus
the two, bleeding and out of breath:
were searching for arms to renew the

having passed a hazel thicket, were
in full view. It seemed, therefore, as
if nothing could save our heroic
ranger. But relief was at hand.—
The little garrison at the station, six
or seven in number, had- witnessed
the whole of this remarkable com
There was among them a heroic
woman, a Mrs. Parsley, who when.
she saw: Higgins contending singly
With 'the foe urged the men to go to
his rescue. The rangers at first con
' sidered the case as hopeless, as the
Indians out numbered, them ten to
one. But Mrs. Parsley declared that
so fine a fellow as Torn should not be
lost for want of help, snatched a rifle
out of her husband's hand, and junip- ,
ing on a horse, sallied out. The men
who would not be outdone by a wo
man, followed, full gallop, towards,
the place of combat. A. scene of in
idatigAlkust ensued. The Indians
Tom, and were rushing down to
wards him with savage yells ; his
friends were spurring their horses to
reach him first—Higgins exhausted 1
with loss of blood had fallen and
fainted. While his adversary, too
intent on his prey to observe any.:
thing else, was looking for a rifle.-
The rangers reached the battle
ground first. Mrs. Parsley, who
knew Tom's spirit, thought he had
thrown himself down in despair for
the loss of his gun, and tendered him
the one she carried ; but Torn was
past shooting. His friends lifted him
up, threw him across a horse before
one of his party, and turned to re
treat just as the Indians came up.-=:
They made good their retreat; and
the Indians retired.
After being carried into the fort,
he remained insensible for some'days,
and his life was with some
- difficulty
preserved by his friends, who extract
ed all the bullets but two, which re
mained in his thigh ; one of which
gave him a great deal of pain for
several years, although the flesh was
healed. At length he beard that a
physician had' settled within a day's
ride of him, whom he went to see.—
The physician was willing to extract
the ball, but asked the moderate sum
of fifty dollars for the operation.—
This, Tom flatly refused to give, as
it was more than a half year's pen
sion. And as he rode home be turn
ed the matter in his mind, and deter
mined upon a cheaper plan. When
he reached home he requested his
wife to hand him a razor. The exer
cise of riding so chafed the part, that
the ball which usually was not dis
covered to the touch, could be felt.—

is the hang. It is, also, one of the
most neglected.
In fact, the only two classes of
men I know of who invariably care
for their hands properly are the
gamblers and chiropodists. The in
herent good taste of the other sex
shows up brilliantly in this particu-
I ar.
But people generally hack off their
nails with dull knives, and scrape
the roots so that they are rough' and
one-sided and fluffy. A very little
care, even when one is engaged in
manual occupations, will suffice to
keep the nails smooth, regular, and
rosy ;and that a great deal.

The average morning ablution,
among a majority of men, is merely a
superficial rinse, in cold water, of the

wrist 'downward. Once a week, -it
may be, they are more thorough, but
it would take a purer man than

The only deduction I can draw
from all this is, that most people are

In the matter of dress, we arc
naturally somewhat hampered by
pecuniary circumstances. A cheap
tailor can hardly take as much time
to devise an elegant garment as
should be bestowed upon it, and
• cheap cloth is not so agreeable to the
wearer as a finer fabric.
There are some poor devils who
never can look well dressed. 'We

to the most fashionable tailors and
pay the most awe-inspiring , priers,
but somehow, when fully rigged, with
all the care that they are capable of,
they have an undeniable air of hav

can only pity, and pray for. There
is no help for them.
Others again,, have a happy facul

a hat a year old, brush it and go forth
to be selected by his intimates as the •
wearer of•a new one. If he hangs up
a classic coat for two months, and
then wears if, again, the more pordus

[From the Springfield {Base.,) Republican
The question seems to be an ab
surd one and yet, some of the secta
rian newspapers are discussing it and
attempting to prepare the public
mind for it. They could hardly un
dertake a more wicked and mischiev
ous work ; but they assume to be
merely giving needful warning of
what must soon come. The pretense
is that the Roman Catholics have a
deep plot to get possession of the
Government of the United States,
destroy her free institutions, make
their religion the state religion, and
in fact establish a despotism, with
perhaps the Pope in person at its
bead ;at any rate with all the hide
ous machinery of the inquisition to
torture us into support of its faith
and authority. The description giv
en of the frightful things to be done
by the Pope's government of the
United States, when Billy establish
ed, are enough to make one's blood
freeze with horror, if read with seri
ousness and credulity. The mon
strous barbarities of the darkest of
the dark ages are all to be reproduc
ed here. What do our protestant
editors mean by attempting to ex
cite such sectarian alarm and hostili
ty ? It is impossible to suppose that
they believe there is any cause for it.
They bring no facts to show that the
Catholics of this country seek politi
cal power as a sect, or that they car
ry their sectarianism into politics.—
In fact, they are less obnoxious to
this charge than the Protestants, for
while in many parts of the country
a Catholic cannot be nominated for
any office because of the fact that
Protestants will not vote for Catho
lics, we never heard of an instance of
a Catholie.refusing to vote for the
candidate of his party because of his
.being a protestant. If there is any
bigotry in this matter, the Catholic
is by no means the chief offender.—
But let us see what some of the
prophets of evil have to say. This is
from the Boston Recorder, the organ
of the first' proof Orthodoxy in Mas
sachusetts :
"The real extent of Romish.control
at this moment is unexpected. It
may be sufficient in 1866 to give us a
President, two-thirds of both houses
of Congress, and the Governors and
a Majority' in both houses of three
fourth's of all the States. An Amend
ment of the Constitution could thus
be effected, making Papacy the na
tional religion and the only one to be
tolerated. But the most Sanguine
may not hope so much so soon.—
Rome may see it safe. to aspire no
further in 1868 than for a Vice Presi
dent. To make a President of him
would need but a skillful dose of poi
son—a trifle that Rome never want
ed when the motive was adequate.—
