T 16 LITERARY POST.
Characterof the Rocky mountains.
We dative the following interesting
sketch of an original character, a graduate
of one of our Colleges, from Farbami
Travels in the Great Western Prairies:
One of these trappers was from Nevi ,
Hampshire . ; he had,been educated in Dart.
mouth College. and was, altogether, one
of the most remarkable men I ever knew;
A splendid gentleman, a finished . scholar,
a critic oa English and Roman literiture,
a politician, a trapper, an Indian! HiA
stature was something more than six feet;
his shoulders and chest were broad, and
his arms and lower limbs were well forin 7
ed and very muecu!ar. His forehead watt
I high and expansive, Casuality, Compari
;son, Eventuality, ar.d all the preceptive
organs, to use a phrenological description;
remarkably large; Locality Was, however '
larger than any other organ in the frontal
region; Benevolence, Wonder, Weida";
Secretiveness, Destructiveness and Adhe.
sieveness, Combativeness, Self.Esteetil
and Hope were yery high. Tie remain:
ingorgans were low. His bead was cloth;
ed with hair as black as jet 23 , feet in
length, smoothly combed and hinging
down his back. He was dressed in a deer ',
skin frock, legging and moccasins ; not A
shred of cloth about his person . On rni .
first interview wjth him, he addressed me
with the stiff, cold formality of one con
scious of his own importance; and in ti
manner that he thought unobeetved,
tinized the movement of ever . ) , muscle of
my face and every word that I uttered.- i
And when any thing was said of political
events in the States of Europe, he gave
silent and intense attention. I left bicn
without any very good impressions of
character; for I had induced him to opea
his compressed mouth but once, and thed
to make the no very agreeable it quiriei-r- -
'When do you start?' and 'Whet route dd
you take?' At my second iuterview,
was more familiar. Having ascertained
that he was proud of his learning, t
proached him through that medium. Ha
seemed pleased at thiscompliment to ail
superiority over those around him;
and at once became easy and talkative.—
His 'Alma Mater' uas described and re-:
described; all the fields and walks and riv-:
uleti, the beautiful Connecticut; the eier
green primitive ridges lying airing riti
banks, which he said, 'had smiled for 4
thousand ages on the march of decay,'
were successive themes of his gigantic
imagination. His descriptions were
nute and exquisite. He 138%4 in every
thing all that Science sees, together wit
all that his capacious Intellect, inatructe
and imbued with the wild fancyings an
legends of hie race could see. I inquired .
the reason of his leaVing civilized life for
a precarious livelihood in the wilderneee.
'Per reasons found in the nature of my
race,' he replied. 'The Indian's eyes can
not be satisfied with a description of things;
how beautiful sdever may be the style, of
the harmonics of verse in which it is con
veyed. For neither the periods of butn-:
ing eloquence, nor the m i ghty and beauti
ful creations of the imagination, can un-:
bosom the treasures and realities as they
live in their own native magnificence od
the eternal monument, and in the aetret;
(introdden . vale;
As soon as yoti thrUst the ploughshare
under the earth, it teerne with worms and
useless weeds. It increases population td
an unnatural extent—creates the necessity
of penal enactments—builds the jail=
erects the gallows—spreads over the
man face a mask of decei lion and selfrs".;.
ness—and substitutes villany, loie of.
wealth, and power, and the slaughter of
millions fur the gratification of some ray.;
al cut throat, in the place of the single
minded honesty, the hospitality, the honor
and the purity of the natural state.-;:-
Hence, whenever Agricultfire appears, the
increase of moral and physical wretched.
ness induces the thousands Of necessities'
as they are termed, for abridging humeri
liberty; for fettering down the mind to the
principles of right, derived, not from nts=
ture, but from a restrained and forced Con
dition of existence. And hence My rate,
with mental and physical habits as free sui
the waters that flow from the hills, became
restive under the rules of civilized life;
dwindle to their paves under the control
of laws, and customs, and forrits, whicli
have grown out of the endless vices, and
the faciluous virtures of another race.—;
Red men often acquire and love the Sei"
ences. But with the nature which the
Great Spirit has given them, what are all
their trUthi to thein? Would an Indian
ever measure the height of a tionntsin
that he could climb? No, never. The
legends of his tribe tell him nothing about
quadrants, and base lines and angles.--
Their old braves, however, have for agei
watched from the cliffs the green life in
the spring, and the yellow death in the au
tumn, of their holy forests. Why should
be ever calculate an eclipse? He always,
knew such occrrreoces to be the doings of
the Great Spirit. Science, it is true, can
tell the times and sessoes of their coming;
but the Indian, whets they do occur, looks
through Nature, without the aid of Seis
...nee, up trkits cause. .Of what use is Lu.
oar to him? His swift cancehas the green
embowed shores, and well known'
headlands, to guide its course. In free,
what are arts of peace, of war. of agricul
ture, or anythiug civtlzied, to him? His
natere and, its elements, like the pine
which shadows its wigwam, are too
Mighty, too gland, of ton rero:lg a fibre,
