"I am sorry that such is the turn
of strain, Mr. Peterson. I lied hop
ed that you could believe me to be
more of a man 'than this all comes to,
but I see I am much mistaken, so I
will tell yon why I have called on
yon to day. I have loved your daugh

her, and I had hoped that yon would
give me her hand in marriage, but I
cannot hope to, receive you;, consent,
biased as you are toward me through
my. enemies. I will try and banish
the love of her, whom I idolize and
worship, from my mind, bat I hardly
think it can be t unless it is in death.
Oh, why . was I born ? I know I shall

Charley Doane's conduct was so

they boc'h cried a little, and
then carne close to their father, and
wondered if 'lel was not mad.
Mr. Peterson had lapsed into a
thoughtful mood, and did not an

said : "My daughters, that man
Means much mischief: I am too well
acquainted with human nature to be
deceived. ••Mt. Doane will try and
try again, till' he accomplishes his
desire. and that is, your ruination.
I believe he intends to kidnap you,
and shall boot' the lookout for him."
"Father, I think thee is needlessly
alarmed," said both daughters at
once. "We -are
,not going to' make
ourselves miserable on Charley
Doane's account; so let ns all cheer
up, for, you know, day-after-to-mot

tend the wedding, which will be so
nice and pleasant for us all." •

a sad way, that ho • could not throw
off the idea that something awful

opened it, andj Uncle Zeke stepped
in. , "How du You du to-day, all on

'Zeke said all his say, and talked So
fast that no one else could get a word
in till he had 'concluded; when Mr.
Peterson asked him to take a seat.
.The trapper sat down, and the
family related' to him bow Charley
Doane had conducted himself, Mr.
Peterson telling all his fear.
Zeko gave it as his opinion that
mischief might be done, but thought.
not very soori; and finally persuaded
the family to ; shut up their house
.auci go to the 'wedding.
He remained a ,few hours, and
amused the ladies with his yarns
about his experience with • tho red
skins, aatheti went home as chirp
as a lark, little dreaming of the sor
row awaiting the family ,he so much
loved. The wedding night had come,
and evrybodyl . seemed cheerful, and
all were going to witness the union
of the happyl couple, except one.
Poor Branner had been invited, but
refused to see the idol of his heart
wedded to another. He , was pining
.away; and many who knew him-de
clared that he was either love sick or,
else he was losing his senses.
Mr. 1-111 acted as pastor on the
oeedsiou, and after the twain were
made one flesh, the blessing of God
was asked upon their union, and
then all sat down to a rudely con
,stracte'd table, and partook, of the
refreshments provided for the occa
sion by the father and mother of the
bride, and then followed the jollifiea
tion, ; which was kept up until after

soliloquized our hero. "Tarnalation,

`He then took hold the latch - string
and pulled, and open flew the door,
and no one was to be seen, and eve
rything-was upside down, the bench
es turned over, and the bad-clothes
strewn all about the house. •
Zeke'ran up into the loft , where
'the boys were accustomed to sleep,
and there he found both of the Pe
terson boys.bound and gegged,.and
althost dead from suffocation, their
mouths being stuffed full of old rags
and a band tied tightly around their
mou tbs.
When they were released from
their uncomfortable situation, they
could not speak for several moments.
As ` soon as they could whisper, they
told the sad news that ,several dis
gnitied ruffians had concealed them
selves in the house while they were
at the wedding, and when they -re
turned they bound every one .of the
men folks, and took the, girls anti
Zeke inquired for their'father, but
they could not toll what had become
of him. Zeke then went down stairs
and told the boys to get down. as
soon as they could. He looked in
every place in -doors, but could not
find Mr. Peterson. Ho then went
oOtand looked all around the house,
and was just giving up in despair,
when he heard a half-stilled groan.
He ;stopped and listened, and the
groan was repeated. The trapper
then went where he thought the
soned caste from, and ho found no
one: He stood still and listened
again. He heard the noise still
plainer,'.J)* concluded it met be
outside, the enclosure. He walked
aroUnd' to the main entrance, and
from thence outside the barricade to
the 'place where he heard the groan
Here he found the Gbject of his
search, bound hand and foot, and
gagged in the same manner as the
boys, and almost dead, having receiv
ed several ugly wounds about the
head and face, from which the blood
wasstill oozing.
It was a long time after Mr.. Pe
tersbn was released before ho could
speak-. When be did, ho had no
more information to communicate
than the trapper had-already learned
of the boys. Mr. Peterson knew,
thotic-h; which way the party had
r one, they
0 - having taken the'path to-
wards the river. They all surmised
vho were the members of the party,
`dud' they were not incorrect, for
harley Doane had heard of the
weeding coming off, and for this‘rea
son:had hit upon this easy plan of
carrying out his nefarious intention.
Before noon the greatest excite
ment prevailed all up and down the
valley. The Smith family swore they
would not rest till they took the life
of every one of the wretches who
robbed their community of two of
their angels of mercy, and Uncle
Zuke should be their leader.
The doable tragedy almost de
throned the reason of some of the
most excitable, bat pioneers were ac
customed to tionble and trying
scenes, and before night a pursuing
-party was formed, and every man
arnied to the teeth. When the men
departed, everybody prayed that God
would give them success, and they
were soon on the river's bank and
looking after fheir canoes, but
. no.
canoes were to be found. The Doanes
ILO ctit them all Loose and sent them
adrift. This was a dampener to the
pursuing party,• and for a few mo
menta no one seemed to know how
to proceed. Zeke finally came to the
rescue and ordered the men to re
turn to the settlereent at once and
see:how many canoes could be mug
teritd that had been taken thither to
be kept ; only to be used on occasion§
of emergency. The men were brit a
few moments in walking to Mr. Pe
terson's, and on inquiry they fonnd
that. Mr. Harris had two large ones,
and they were hidden in the woods
about one fourth of a mile-from his
residence, on a direct line towards
the river. The reader can readily .
see how much time must necessarily
be - Consumed before Zeke and his fol-.
loweta could get the, canoes into the:
Susquehanup., acid make good the
other shorei This delay filled the
minds of all: with great fear lest the
'Donnes should get so mach the start
of the pursuers that the ladies never
could be recaptured. It was quite
sunset when Undo Zeke and his men
reached the enemy's side of the river;
and no time was lost in secreting the
canoes and getting tinder way.
T r

- The Doane bOthers received Char
ley, the spy, with open arms on, his
arrival from Mr. Peterson's, and
made hurried preparations to carry
out their hellish designs, and on the
night of Brown's wedding, as has al
rtiady been mentioned, they went to
Mr. Peterson's residence and secret
ed' themselves, some within doors
under the beds, and some of them
without, so that at a given signal the
twO parties could work to advantage
and secure the Peterson family, with
out one esaaping to gis'e information
till they bad made good their escape
with the two girls.
•Moses Doane was the oldest of the
brothers, and .had been one 'of the.
most inhuman creatures from his
youth up, having committed a score
of 'cold-blooded murders, and on this
oceasion coald hardly be restrained ,
frOm taking the lives of all the fami
ly save the two whom they designed
tolake into captivity. • .
A single spark of humanity was
left in the breasts of all the Doanes
save Moses, and the earnest pleading:
and weeping of the young ladies that
their father and mother and brothers
might be left unharmed, were heed ?
ed and none of them so injured but
that they soon recovered after being
unbound:.? Mr. Peterson struggled
intensely while ho was keing
bonna ail gagged, that ha received
several wounds which the reader has a en ruade acquainted with.
Mrs. Peterson was so much fright
ened that she swooned entirely away,
and the kidnappers tied a bandage
'et4tutcl her mouth- and left bet in
aZGAIIDI2II3 Olt -aziarficakTioi TROY AT QtrABIIZ
bed. Mr. Peterson„got ont 'of the
,house and ran towards the gate' in
the enclosure and 'called loudly for
help, but was pursued by the party
outside and soon overtaken and se
cured and lett on the ground, where
he was found by Uncle ,Zeke, the
particulars of which have already
been related. The ladies wore threat
ened with death if they made an
alarm. Thus the party of despera•
does carried out their treacherous
design withont , molestation.
As soon as ' ,, the Doanes reached
home with their prisoners the . ) , con
fined theni in a small room or closet,
and all sat down around a blazing
fire built of dry logs in an old-fash
ioned fireplace, and held a consulta
tion concerning what should be done
with the ladies. . While they were
thus conversing they passed around
a bottle of whisky, of which they all
drank freely, and ere long most of
them became considerably intoxicat
ed.. The, drunker they became, the
more animated became their conver
sation, and finally Moses , drew his
hunting knife and said he was boss
in this house, and any man who dis-
Putsd his right to rule, he would let
oat his life-blood in a minute.
Charley being more sober than the
rest, stood - upon his feet and ad
dressed his brothers in a very impas
sioned manner, stating to them the
necessity of unity of action and har
mony of feeling, giving it as his opin
ion that they would soon be pursued,
and something must be done to se
crete the prisoners for 'a few weeks
at least, else they would be wrested
from them.
Charles also gave it as his opinion
that they had, better' remove. the la
dies to their mountain retreat, and,
in fact, •he thunght they all had bet
ter take up their abode there for a
season, and then they who came in
pursuit would not be likely to find
their whereabouts, and thus they
would run no risk of losing their
game or their own lives.
All agreed that they would do as
Charley had advised, and inless than
an hour they were ou their way to
the mountain. The ladies were given
some coarse food and some hot whis
ky sling, but refused the latter, eat
ing very sparingly indeed of the cold
boiled venison and corn bread, of
which their lunch consisted. They
were weary and heart-broken, think
ing that they were forever doomed
to a life of shame and misery, having
been convinced of the treatment in
store for thorn by overhearing the
remarks that their merciless captors
had made while quarreling about
They marched several miles, into
the dense wilderness, -and finalfy ar
rived atr their place of destination.
Charley Doane said to the captives.
"You are now standing beside your
future home and our mountain re
treat. We trust that you will submit
quietly to this your n - Jw life,. and if
you do, wo will make you qUeens of
our establishment and bestow upon
you our 'combined affection. If you
will not peacefully submit to onr de
sires, and obey us to the letter, we
shall be under the necessity of com
pelling you 'to serve our purpose
housewives, and thus you will forfeit
that loveand esteem which we can
only grant to willing and .obedient
serve nts."
Emma was somewhat emboldened
on hearing the wretch's insulting ha
rangue, and replied, :
"Mr. Doane, thou knowest that we
aro in thy power, and can do with
us as thou, pleasest, but. we have
made up our minds never to yield
willingly td'any of your desires. We
can only trnst in our Heavenly Fath

"Why, oh, w'ay has our God forsaken

"I trust so," said Emma, "but I

ing home and friends ftgain‘.",
The Doines' mountain home was
bnilt of solid rock, and was more a
cave than a house.•
,Nature had "done
most of, the work, and what little re
mained to be accomplished by man
was at the main entrance. The door
way was covered by a• massive stone
which could only be removedty two
strong men.
When the party arrived at the dcor,
the latter wasremoved, and they all
passed through it dark, damp entry,
and finally came to an inner door
which opened into a large apartment
occupied by rude furniture, consist
ing of a rough table which stood in
the centre of the room, and three
rough benches, ono of them sitting
before a huge fire-place.
Some broken bottles and iron dish
es lay in the corner, and on the table
sat an old stone jug. The room was
very dimly lighted, and a sickening
air filled the terrible place. The la
dies were ordered to sit down, and in
a little-while the men built a' blazing
fire, and the bad air was soon dis
plece'd, and the room became_' much
more'cornfortable. Though. thq fire
blazed brightly and cheerfully, it was
not noticed by the captives,_ they
were so deeply absorbed their
hopeless situation. Supper was soon
prepared, and the party all gathered
about the table and soon gorged
themselves, paying no attention to
the ladies till they had finished their
meal. Charley then
. prepared some
food for them and invited them to sit
by and eat. At first thought Emma
had decided to decline eating, but
she knew that if they did not take
nourishment they would be unable,
to endure the hardships incident to
an escap3 (which they had but little
hope of), so she and her sister sat
down and ate some jerked venison
and a little coarse ecru-bread.
The men sit around the fire and
smoked and told yarns for an hour
or so, and then Charley turned to the
ladies and asked them if they desired
to retire. Emma said yes, and they
were shown into a little room adjoin
ing the one into which they were tint
introsinee4. There wee no lock on
the door, and no bed in the room,
and np furniture,' save a little bench
on which they apt their light, which
was an old rusty lamp filled with
melted lard and a rag answering as
a wick. where they were
to rest was nothing bat a pile of hem
lock boughs and a lot of dried leaves,
and there was no knowing how long
these had lain in the room, and no
knowing how many ruffians had slept
The men began, their drinking and
carousing as nsnal, and high words
were distinctly heard by the lonely
captives, and every now and then
their own names were pronounced in
connection with language that made
their blood rah cold.

night, if God will only lend a helping

dear sister," said Earia, " brit, we
had better perish in the wild woods

" How shall we procedd ?" said
" My plan is , this : We will remain
awake till all the miserable creatures
become drunken, and then we will
take onr lamp and quietly pass out,
and I think we can travel as far as
the river before daylight, and then
we may be fortunate enough to meet

and thus return once mote to our

what you have planned; I am afra;d

"butt we can but die in trying."l
Late in the evening the men bo.
came quiet, and one by one they fell
asleep, and the loud snoring led Em
ma to open the door a little, and she
- saw them all lying about the floor
apparently sound, asleep. The Doanes
had left but one sentinel outside, and
they hardly thought that necessary,
their retreat was so little likely to be
discovered, and this was the only
thing that made the captives' escape
doubtful. The stone at the doorway
had not been placed over the mouth
of the cave, which was fortunate for
the ladies. The captors had not a
thought that the girls would attempt
to escape in the night-time, at least,
and thus were wholly unprepared for
such an event. The man at the door
being tired and half drunk did not
keep a careful watch, and thus the
coast was dear.
Emma said to her sister, " Now is
our time. 0 - God! help us in our
affliction." With great cantion they
opened the bedroom door and stepped
oat. They had to be very cautious
lest they should hit the men with
their feet as they paszied through the
large room, they lay so closely to
gether' right in front of the door.
They soon reached the mouth of the
cave and passed out into the dark•
There came up a little gust of wind
and eitinguishi their light, which
left them to grope their way as be , t
they could in total darkness. For a
moment they were so confused by
the loss of their burning, taper ,that
'they stood still.,
and 'hardly knew
what to do. They finally - became a
little more accustomed to the dark
ness, and commenced their perilOu7
and awful journey. They took a
southerly direction, stumbling along
over sticks, rocks and underbrush,
tearing their clothing, and scratching
their faces and hands in a shocking
manner. They did .not murmur,
though, as onward they marched.
The direction:they were pursuing
would. take them directly to the verge
of an awful precipice, some 309 feet
high, overlooking , a narrow valley
about three miles above where now
stands the city of Pittston. They
were not more than a half mile from
this towering mans of red rocks,
when they heard a noise not far from
them. They paned to. listen, dud to
their horror they rdeognized the
..!,Iru::ken murderers iu hot pursuit.

—After the first triumphant perform
ance of Mozart's Opera " Don Juan,"
at' Munich, the theatre - was deserted
by all except one man. Alois Senne-•
felder had much to du. After seeing
carefully around the stage, that no
sparks bad ignited about the theatre,
he retired to. his little room to stamp
the theatre tickets for the following
day. As he entered the room he had
.three things in his hand—a polished
whetstone-for . raiors, whiCh he bad
purchased, a ticket stamp moistened
with a printer's ink, and a check on
the theatre treasury for Ibis weekly
pay., lie placed the check on a table,
when a gust of wind took it, swept it
high up in his room for a minute,
and then deposited it in a basin filled
with. water. Sennefelder took the wet
paper, dried it as well as he could,
and then, to make sure of it, weight.
ed it down with the whetstone, on
ivhich he had before carelessly placed
the printing stamp. Returning to bi: ,
roofu on the following morning, he
was surprise& to see the letters of the
stamp printed with remarkable ac
curacy upon the damp paper.. -He
gazed long at the check ; a sudden
thought flashed through his brain ;
be wondered if by some such means
ho could not 'save hirnself the weary
trouble he continually had .copying
the songs of the chorus. That very
morning he went out and purchased
a larger stone - and commenced to
make experiments, and, as we all

No. XI
It is necessary to study the entire
twenty-second chapter in order to a
proper understanding of the lesson.
It may be subdivided thus : (1).
Joshua's farewell discourse to the
two and a half tribes; verses 1-8; (2)
Return of these tribes to their home,
and the erection of an altar on the
Jordan; verses 9, 10; (3). Embassy
from. Israel concerning this altar;
verses 11-20; (4). The apology of
the Trans-Jordanie tribes; versos 21-
- 31;•
.(5).. Return of the embassy ;
verses 32-34.
,Joshua's farewell discourse.
In the closing-verses of the preceding
chapter, we find that the entire land
of Canaan was in possession of Israel,
as God had, promised their fatherii.
It is true that. many of the Canaan
ites remained-in the land, and some
of them in defiant strongholds; but
their number was comparatively
small, and their continuance was dne
to the negleet of Israel, and not to
any lack of faithfulness on God's
part. God's word had been unques
tionably fulfilled; (xxi: 45). It was
now time to dismiss • the two tribes
and a half who had m'arched over
Jordan before their brethren.. Numb.
xxxii: 20-22 ; Dent. iii: 18-20; Josh.
12-15. So Joshua summoned
them [before the ark and the con
gregation at,i Shiloh]; and acknowl
edged their obedience tor-Moses and
to his commands, and their faithful
ness to their brethren and to the
Lord. - This / commendation was de
served. For, seven years they had
been absent from their homes
and families, assisting in the. con
qn.est of the territory belonging to
the other tribes They had discharg
ed every obligation, and kept every
commandment of the 'Lord. They
had fairly weirs. the rest of victory, as
well as ' their ' brethren. Their tents
awaited them is probable they..
adhered largely to the nomadic tent
life) in the !land of Gilead. Still,
they needed /to be exhorted to do
the commandent (the special orders /
communicated through Moses. and
Joshua) and ;the law,- (the written
law); that is, to love the Lord, etc.;
verse 51 God required of them no
formal service, but the love of'the
heart and the obedience of the life.
And a special injunction was given";
verse S. They must divide the's - poi'
With their brethren who= remained
at home to guard the women and
children and cattle; probably about
70.000 armed Warriors. Having thus
charged them, and invoking God's
blessing; upon them, he sent them
away from the Sanctuary at. Shiloh.
(2). The return of the tribes toil
their homes. • Nothing is said. abut
the jenrney. : Britun incident is re
lated in thii connection of great in -
teresl; verse, 19. Where was this
great altar built!? Onr decision is
in favor of the western - side of Jor
dan. This is the opinion of most of
the recent writers upon, the Subject.
We can only 'give •in our limited'
space one or two reason's for this
opinion. ( - 1.). It seems to be the
clear teachii,g of Scripture. The al
tar was bnilt i in the borders of 'Jor
dan,: that areiin the land of Canaan.
Thhi always;designates the.conntry
west of tiie Jordan., From this we
might reasonably infer that the great
loOking altar was built upon the west
bank of the Jordan, on the very 'con
fines of Canaan. And is confirm;
ed by e passage Which seems accord
irig to our version to he a discrepan
cy.; In verse 11 it is said that the
altar was "over against the larid.of
Canaan ;" but this should. be trans—
lated "in front of the land of
narin;" .: on
. its extreme -edge.
(Crosby). ).toreover, - we find the,
antithesis .plainly marked between
Canaan (the land on the west side of
Jordan) and, Gilead (the -country on
the ,east side); verse 9. Gilead is
used as a general term for the pos
sessions of the two tribes and a half;
including both Gilead and Bashrin,
the kingdoms •of Sihon and Og.
Hence, if the altar, was btiiit in the
land of Canaan, it could not, accord
' ingfto the usage of this Book. of
Joshua, -he ,within - the country of
Gilead. '
And (2) we should expect the altar
to be on the:west side. of the Jordan.
What was the object sought in its
erection . ? To testify to their interest
in the Lord and- his people. It was
a sign of unity; of their right tow 4 .,
ship at the one sacrificial altar of, Je
hovah. They bad selfishly chosen
an "unclean
.land;" not the, land of.
promise (Canaan) ; where •Jehovah
had his abode, but a land inhabited
by heathen and polluted by idolatry.
Still they claimed a share, an in
terest, a portion, in the 'proMised
land, and were determined that their
children should not ba denied •the
benefit of, this claim. And it is sig, 7
niticant that, this, claim was allowed
by the embassy; verse 19. NOw, if
they_deEiired to give visible expres
sitaa to this Claim by rearing, an altar
of witness, where should we expect
them to locate the - altar? Surely,
not iu the unclean land, but in the
laud •of Jehovah's presence and
promise—to! 'stand. there upon the
bank of Jordan as a, sign that they
had a right to sacrifice and eat 'at
the one altar of Divine worship. , But,
it is . objected that if built on the west
side of Jordau,'the remaining tribes
would have, prevented .its erection.,
This does nut follow. It is not to be
supposed that their brethren fellow
ed them on tbeir. march. The, altar
may have b,een reared in an nnfre-,
oriented phiee, and its existence b3en
unknown by the West-Joidanic
tribes for some time: This seetns al
most certain from the record. -
they is there any•foree in the objec
tion that if built on, the. w.,St bank,
the other tribis could have deStroy
ed it and removed the difficulty with
out any fear of ,war. _The existence
of tho altarkvas nut the only or oven

Before dashing into - a war of purifi

Eastern tribes; embracing Phitichas,

in the land of Gilead, probably with
arepresentative assembly at Ramotb-
Gilead. The charge of rebellion *as

as a sacrificial altar, but as an altar
of witness to the part of themselves

God, but of devotion to him not of
soparstiop from his people, but of
