In Memory of ELLEN M. WOODWARD, Miss HESNER, and
j Miss BUTLER, who were drowned together, January
lUlli, IliO, near Wilkesbarre, Pennsylvania
'Tis sad to weep and wake
Beside the severing tie,
To woo in vain the shadows back
That dim the loving eye ;
But sadder far to see the blight
Of undeparted bloom,
That lelt no track from day lo night—
From spring-time to the tomb.
j Thus to this gentle trio came
I be angel ol the grave—
Quenched with a look the vital flame,
And chilled the purple wave ;
And drinking quick the precious breath,
He lelt his ta>k abroad,
i To bear th' unfading wreath of Death,
And precious gems to God.
1 his is the bairn of bleeding love,
In tile's dear purpose cross'd,
J he shrouded here are winged above—
'l he loved, BUT NOT THE LOST !
1 he smile o! Heaven had early won
Each heart Irom earth awav ;
And death was but the sudden dawn
Ol" evetiasting day.
Thou, Lllen, in thy childhood bright.
The way but little trod,
Jladsl turned from earth's delusive light,
1 o yield thy heart to God.
An opening ilower, that caught the hue
Ol Heaven's refulgent dyes,
And dripping with the morning dew,
Was gathered to the skies.
'I were sweet to have thee bloom in time,
But sweeter far to thee
To pout - thy lragratice in the clime
Of immortality.
Where blossoms close not for the night,
Nor dread the storm to come—
I he noon-day heat and evening blithe
Are far beneath thy home.
This tale o'er many a soul will hang
In shadows for a dav ;
Bui there are hearts from which the pang
Will pass no more away—
Hearts that in after years w ill beat,
Ev'n as to-night, m pain,
And hear in dreams the coming feet
That ne'er shall come again.
God help the mother iri her grief,
I'he lather in his wo!
The hand alone can give relief
That measured out the blow.
Thy blessing on each lonely hearth,
And grant the spirits riven,
That loved and severed here on earth
May meet and love in Heaven!

There are, we presume, but few of our

tract of land, situated in the State of Penn

wa> tirsi ::;ul oiiieflv set'led bv Germans.
It contains rich laruis, fields and meadows,
together with valuable limber land, and
was visited with lire and sword, by a party
of American Tories, British, and Indians,
in the \ 1 ar 1 <7B, at a time when the male
population ol the settlement, which num
ber amounted to about 350 souls, had
joined tii" arinj of the great and immortal
Washington, at a distance of several days
journey, where they expected to encounter
the main army of the enemv.
i he ( olonel of these \\ yoming Ger
mans was HOI.LEN UACH, a justice of the
peace. He was an intimate friend nf
Washington, who knew how to appreciate
his distinguished qualities, as well as his
rare intelligence; although as to matters
regarding religion, their views and opin
ions differed widely from each other, as it
is well known that Washington was a
strict believer in the Bible ; whereas Ilol
lenbaeh did adhere to the doctrines of
Thus. I'aine, who was a philosopher and
The heart-rending call in distress, of
their parents, wives and children, which
they had left at home, soon reached the
cars of I lit? Wyoming Volunteers, and in
an instant llolleuhach found himself sur
rounded by his men, who urged him to
meet the enemy, whose force consisted of
more than 2,000 men.
In vain were the representations of
Washington, who, being aware of the su
perior numerical strength of these barba
rous and plundering hordes, had prognos
ticated to all a sure death.
Terror and agony moved the heart of
every one at the thought of the dear ones
which they had left behind and unprotect
ed, and clinched their lists in eagerness for
combat and vengeance at the gloomy pros
pects of their ruined happiness ; and it
was now no longer possible for them to
remain with the army.
At the sound of the trumpet, and headed
by their Colonel, they began to return I
homeward in great haste, marching day
and night, until they arrived at their settle
ment, where, instead of meeting again
their peaceable abodes, they beheld the
smoking ruins of destroyed dwellings, near
to which the enemies had comfortably
erected their tents, their morning lire blaz
ing triumphantly in the air, intermingled
with their huzzas.
They soon recognised the red hordes of .
Brant, the notorious spoiler of the 44 Ger
man Flat," who had joined the rapacious
and blood-thirsty Tories and British, which
but a short time ago in Cherry Valley, had
given such terrible proofs of their cruelties.
\ ith dolelul looks Hollenbach regarded
his gallant little band, who gnashed their
teeth for rage and vengeance, stood near
the place of destruction, and the looks of
his men announced to him the inmost
thoughts of their hearts.
There was none who would have trem
bled at an assault on these hordes of mur
41 Brothers !" exclaimed Ilollenbach,
• 4 against such cowards, who watch for our
absence, and who now rejoice in victory
over women and children only, every one
ol us can stand the ground against eight of
them. Let us send these brutes to h—l in
such a manner that even the d—l himself
must have respect for the Germans of
\V yonting \ alley," and raising himself
trom his saddle he waived his sword in the
air, and spurred his horse onward.
J hundering hurras followed his words,
antl his men rushed forward, eager for the
ensuing combat. At the tirst volley, more
than one hundred of these red-skins, (who
formed the advance guard ol the enemy,)
were weltering in their blood. The ene
my were quietly reposing in their camp,
but in an instant the whole army was ap
prised of tfte assault, and from all sides
they rushed upon the gallant little corps.
The sun rose, spreading its animating
beams upon the exhausted Germans, who
in a moment made arrangements to take
the stand behind a row of ruins, and to
watt tor the approaah of their enemies.—
I he first assault of the enemy was re
pulsed, and many kissed the earth in death,
caused by the dense drift of bullets sent
forth Irom behind the entrenchments.
I he mockery about this powerful resist
ance and bravery, which the appearance of
the little band so openly demonstrated to
wards the enemy, soon engaged its whole
army in a furious combat, but they were
not able to stand their ground against the
discharge of the pieces of the little band, I
which rattling, cleared their ranks. Re
pulsed repeatedly, and again hurrying into
the fight, the enemy couid not gain a foot !
of ground, although their guns began to
clear the ranks of their powerful antagonists.
During twelve long hours, these German
Spartans manfully resisted the superior
force of tlte enemy.
finally, and with the last glowing of the
-etting sun, the fate ol the day was decided ;
300 Germans had fallen in defence of their
adopted country, and 50 more lay badly
wounded, who would not seek for quar
ters, and still striving to make a last effort
against the enemy, who seeing their deter
mination, had almost been driven to mad
ness on account of their bravery.
W hat a noble military achievement!
W hat persevering heroism ! Had these
men been Americans, thei/ would, up to
this dot/, have been remembered by the na
tion as the 44 Immortal If yoming Boys
but they "were only Germans, and their
memory, which is as worthv of immortal
ity as that ot the Helens of Thermopylae,
remains silently recorded in the book of

family, relates a good storv of a man
whose life had not been entirely unspotted,
who applied to a worthy deacon lor ad

him, the deacon replied, '• The church is
