farm of Christian Kpser, about three
miles north of Greencastle, in the town

bodies of the murdered victims were hur
ried, at the foot, and on the south side of
'a large hill, near a spring. Mr. Koser
Pointed out to them, a small plat of ground
unmarked by anything, save the grass
and the briars that distinguish it from the
land around it—The spot is an open
field, and the land around it was
ted. Some of the party soon commenced
removing the ea-th ; and after digging to
the depth of four feet and a half, found
some rotten wood and several rusty nails
of ancient construction. After digging a
little deeper, part of a, small skeleton was
'found ; the bones were much decayed—
and when the scull was handled, it crum

ed sound. Near by the side of the skele
ton, there was discovered another, which
from its size, was evidently that of a man
full grown—it was in a much better state
of preservation and from relics found in
button, some small ones, part of an iron
box, which seemed to have been a tobao
-co box—it-was manifest-that-it -was the
skeleton Of the teacher. Several other
smaller skeletons were discovered. The
skeletons were found lying with feet and
head in opposite directions.
I remember, when a youth, forty-five
years ago, to hear it stated, that the teach
_er_amischolarswere allburiediorthe same
grave, being put into a large, rudely con
structed box, with their clothing on, as
they were found after being murdered.—
The relics found proved the truth of the
tradition. The foul murder was perpe
trated by the Indians, in August 1764,
(July 26, i. D. R.) just 79 years before the
exhumation took place. The name of the
teacher was Brown, and three of the sehoL
ars were said to be named Taylor, Hart
The relics above mentioned are now in
the possession of those who were present
when they were found. Some of the citi
zens of Greencastle and vicinity, to ren
der sacred, and perpetuate this spot, where
lies the bones of the innocent victims of,
Indian ferocity, design in the course of
the ensuing summer, to raise a mound up
on it, and inscribe its history upon a stone,
to be placed at the side.
Some of the remains of the school house
still exist and mark the place of its loca
tion. It was truly a solitary one, and
would be considered so at this day. It
was situated on the brow of a hill. In
the front of it, there is a ravine, deep and
dismal—on the north and west, the sur
rounding hills are covered with a thick
growth of underwood and pine. At the
foot of the hill issues a clear spring, where
rest in silence the bones and dust of the
murdered school. A. B. RANK/N.
Wrira. OF A VIRGINIA UNION MAN.-
The Richmond Journal of March 9th con
tains the following curious extract taken
from the will of the late Horace L. Kent,
lately a resident of the city :
"To my daughter—,who has done so
much.to alienate my affections, but who I
still deeply and tenderly love, I give as an
evidence of the beauties of her doctrines
Of secession and rebellion, doctrines and
aims which have reduced me from afflu
ence to beggary, and as she yet thinks per
harm that "The Last Cause" will be re
gained, she may think my request as val.:
uable, more so, possibly, than the same
amount given in Yankee securities. I
give her the following via : Twenty-five
Confederate bonds of K. P. fi. Co., $25,-
000 ; eighteen servants emancipated by se
cession, $lO,OOO ; insurance and bank
stocks, $15,000 ; all my claim against the
so-called Confederate Government for the
wanton, cruel and wicked destruction of
my property on the 3d of April, 1865,
$20,000. I could continue the list to the
extent of more than half a million of dol
lars, but the above will suffice. She will
see what the effects of secession has been,
but for which I could have left all my
children a handsome competency."
til-7` Grace Greenwood thus writes on
the "Woman Question :" "If I had the
framing of the law-, only such women
should be allowed to vote as had sewing
machines, and kbew bow to use them ; no
woman could have a vote who could not
read and write ; who was not able to cast
up her millinery account.: and cut them
Sloan ; who could not make a loaf of
bread, a pudding, sew on a button, wash

PATTEE3OII having sometime since engag

offers for sale; we understand, his valuable
41111 property, on the Antietam, near this
place. The improvements, including a
fine brick Merchant Mill, are not perhaps
excelled in this section of Franklin coun
ty. It has also the advantage of a most
exeelleat water power, and is situated in
. the heart of a wheat-growing section
which may be said in this respect to be
almost unrivaled. With the necessary
elements in abundance—water and mate
rial—it might be turned to profitable ac
count by capitalists investing in it as a
Site for the manufacture of paper. The
shortest and most feasible line for the pro

ordinary business experience impressed us
with this idea the other day in the course
of a conversation with him, and hence
this brief "local." Perhaps some one
among our readers better posted as to this
particular branch of manufactures will
furnish us something more practical on

BARNUM'S GREAT SHOW.—The other
day we received a Circular from P. T.
Barnum, the renowned Showman, at the
bo . ttoni of which he stated in a note, that
his great traveling Museum, Menagerie,
Caravan, Hippodrome, Polytechnic In
stitute; and International Zoological Gar
den, in which he has One Million of Dol
lars invested, will probably visit our town
during the spring or early summer. lie
has added some remarkable novelties to
his establishment, among these are his Fi
jian Cannibals, his Sea Lions,and his Rid
ing Goat Alexis. We copy the following
from the New York Tribune of Feb. 24
"A private exhibition was given yes
terday by four Fiji Island cannibals, at
room No. 14 Astor House, under the au
spices of Mr. Barnum t 0.150 friends. He
has obtained three of these natives by de
positing $15,000 with the American Con
sul as security for their return in August,
1874, to Thokambau, the king of the lar
gest of the Fiji Islands. In the event of
their return they are to suffer death, and
posibly will be eaten alive by piece -meal,
accordirg to cannibal custom. Mr. Bar-'
num, howevei, .disclaims any intention of
sending them back to satisfy the demands
of Fiji justice. A woman, who had been
educated by missionaries accompanied the
agent to this country, through the advice
of the Missionary Society. She read pas
sages yesterday from a copy of the Bible
printed in the Fiji language. The cap
tives were liberally daubed with paint,and
displayed ostrich and peacock feathers on
their heads. They performed war dances
to the accompaniment of m onotonous songs.
The dwarf, Ra Biau, who has the most
fierce and treacherous aspect of them all,
varied the entertainment by playing on a
flute through his nose. The tune was as
enlivening as variation on two notes could
possibly be. Mr. Barnum has lost none
of his customary zeal in providing rare
and expensive novelties for the patrons of
his last great achievement. His Sea Li

_IC lair. George Small, of Small's Mill,
Quincy township, met . with a fatal acci

while doing so he set his clothes on fire,
and burned himself fatally. He died on

greatly, but bon. it with patience. He

"I have done giving," was the answer
of a man to me when asked to contribute
to one of the benevolent purposes of the
church of which he is a member,
Done giving ! what a subject for reflec
tion and thought. Done giving? have
you indeed, given all .you have to give ?
Come, brother, let us reason this matter
among us. Has the disciple done, what
his master did ? was he rich, and has he
become poor so that others through his
poverty have become rich? Oh no, broth
er, you have more of this world's goods to
day than you had one year ago. You
have an abundance—more than enough
far your support. Your children have
plenty, you have in no way impoveiished
yourself. You are, through the favor of
Providence, full of this world's wealth ;
your barns are not emptied by giving—
they are full ; you are successful in busi
ness;. the Lord gives lavishly to you; you
are his steward; can you say, I have done
giving, and thus honor your master ? He
says, behold, all these or mine. At His
coming he will ask you to return the tat.
en t given you, with usury.
Why, my brother, is there no longer.
any to whom you need to give ? are all
the hungry ones fed? are the naked all
clothed ? have all had the gospel preached
unto them? is there a Bible in every house
in our own land ? Do nations no longer sit
in darkness? Have the glorious tidings
of "Peace on earth, good will to men,"
been published everywhere? Do men no
longer worship gods made with their own
hands? Are the swords all turned into
plow shares and spears into pruning hooks?
Does one hand of brotherhood bind all na
tions, and kindreds, and tongues, and do
men learn the art of war no more? Is
the wail of the orphan no longer beard ?
do the widow's tears no longer flow ? has
the cup of gladness everywhere taken the
place of the cup of sorrikw ? Have you
nothing to do with all these things? Yes,
you are one of the Lord's husbandmen ;
the fields are white unto the harvest. As
checks are never protested at His counter,
if you hail) funds there. "He who giv•
eth a cup of cold water to one of these lit
tle ones in the name of a disciple, shall
have his reward."
By your charity you may lay up treas
ures in- heaven. "In-the-morning sow-thy
seed, and in the evening withhold not thy
hand, for thou knowest not, oh man, which
shall prosper." And now, my
are you done giving? If you cease to give
will you grow rich ? Yea, you may in
crease the amount of "yellow dirt" or rust
_l g_paper_;_you ay,. lik e Shylock, claim
the bond, but remember you will he called
into judgment. You are done giving be
cause others do not, give as you think they
should ; for shame, because you think oth
ers niggards, will you be a niggard too ?
Think again, brother. Remember the ex
ample of your Lord, how He went about
doing good. Yes, brother, continue to
give as the Lord prospers you. "Let not
your left hand know what your right hand
doeth." Benevolence is the hot-house of
grace, "For what shall it profit a man if
he gain the whole world." D. B.
