the bull now gathered up all his energies,

sudden and well directed blow of the head,

that tho battle must soon end. Both were
greviously wounded, and neither could
hold out inueh longer. 'I he ground was
torn up and covored with blond for some
distance around, and the panting of tho
struggling animals became each moment
heavier and quicker. Maimed and gory,
they fought with the corttuuly of death

Pocahontas and John Smith.
It has always been a grief to romantic
readers of tho early historv of Yirciniai
that, two poisons who seemed so well suited '
to eaoh other as tho bravo discoverer and
the noble daughter of l'owhnttan, should
not havo beootne man and wif. Tho pre
cise difficulty in tho case has not been
made plain by any historian. An exf hango
intimates that Mr. ltolfo. to whom sho1
wa3 inavrie,l aui his friends, wero guilty
of a base deoontion. in making her beliovo
that Oapt. Smith was dead. It says ;
There is no doubt what tho muso of
history oight to do here. Were sho a
damo of proper sensibilities, sho would
have Mr. John Smith married to Miss P.
Powhattan as soon as a parson could be
got from Jamestown. Were it a romance
that would be the result. As it is, we
find Smith going off to England in two
years, and living uumarricd until his
death; and Pocahontas married to the
Englishman John Rolfo, for rcasous of
state, we fear, .-a link of friendship be
tween the reds and the whites being
thought desirable. She was of course
Christianized and baptized, as any one
may see by Chapman's picture in the ro
tunda at Washington, unless Zouave crit
icism has demolished it. Immediately she
went with her husband to England. At
Bontford, whero sho was staying, Capt.
Johu smith went to visit her. Their
meeting was significant and affecting. "Af
ter a modest salutation sho turned away,
and hid bar face, a3 if displeased." She
remained thus motionless for two or three
hours. Who can know what struggles
passed through tho heart of tho Indian
bride at this moment emotions doubly
unutterable to this untaught stranger ? It
seems that she had been deceived by ltolfo
and his friends into thinking that Smith
wa.i dead, under the conviction that sho
could not bo induced to marry him if sho
thought Smith alive. After her long, sad
cilcucc before mentioned, she came forward
to Smith, aud touchingly reminded him,
there in tho prcsenoc of her husband and
a large company, of tho kindness sho had
shown him iu her own country, saying
''You did promi.-e Powhattan what was
youis should be his, aud ho the like ta
you. You called him 'father,' being in
his land a stranger, and for the same rea
son so must call you." After a pause
during which sho seemed to be uuder the
influence of strong emotion, tho said, "I
will call you 'father,' and you shall call
me 'child,' aud so I will bo forever aud
ever your countryman." Then she added
slowly and with emphasis, ''Thoy did tell
me always you were dead, and I knew no
other till I came to Plymouth ; yet Pow
hattan did command Uttainattomakin to
see you aud know the truth, because your
countrymen will lie much."
l't was not long after thn iuterviow that
Pocahontas died. She never returned to
Virgiuiu. Iler death occurred in 1GI7.
Tho issue of her marriage was one child,
Thomas ltolfo ; ao it is through him that
. tho first families of Virginia ate so invar
iably descended from tho Indian princess.
I Captain Smith lived utitil 16ai,and as wo
have said, never married. He was a no
ble and truo man, and Pocahontas was
overy way worthy to bo his wife ; and ouo
feels very ill-natured at Holfo and com -
pany for tho cruel deception wuicli, wo
must believe, was all that kept them asuu-
der, and gave the story of the lovely maid
' eu its almost tragic close.
