A SETTLER'S EirLorr.
=.._ As Samuel Bowditch, one lof the early set
, tier's on Grand riyer, in Ken ucky, was going
eCrosa patch of swamp, one ifterno6n, 'about
,half a mile from his dwelliing, to look'after
sonic, cattle, he heard a stiick. snap behind
him, and turning quickly rohnil, found him=
self confronted with a huge .savage, in all
( the hideoniness of his war „paint, and with
rifte,or niusketlevelled at - his head, the Muz
zle rwt. more than four feet from him. - BoW
ditehliiiriself had a ritic,in its hind, but he
k.new„thelndian. could sholt him before he
could raise it and fire, and he did not 'Make
the attempt, but immediately dropped it, to
, the ground and held .up hiA palms, in token
_of submission. . • i

said: , ' • , „
"-Give Injun gun !" .
. ' "I see you're a big chie and I hope we
may be friends." . .
• , “Wliere live ?" asked 4ie savage, les he
prOduced a stout thong of deer-skin, and pro
, ceeded to bind the hands of his captive, who,
being a small man, saw he was no match for
:the other, even without we ipons on either
side, and 'so submitted quie,ly, though ago

.' . f , I-live out yonder; not a great way from

in the proper direction. ' -:1 -
" Row many got ?" - queried the'sava.ge.
The settler hesitated about telling correctly.
He first thought he would 'Janine a number
. large enough to deter the Indian from going
thither, and thus, perhaps, have, his wife and
children from a fate like hip own, but after a
moment's reflection, it occurred to him that,
should the savage, take hint there, a chance
Might arise for him to regatnhisliberty, and
:he-decided upon speaking the truth.
f " Why no Long-knife tell i" demanded the
Indian, with an impatient frOwn. "No
I make lie !" ..
"NO, chief; tell you. he truth. There
are only three persons cabin—my wife
-;and two children—bui I know a big braye
thief like you won't hurt 'em."
"Me go see 'em !" returned the savage,
' with a fierce gleam of triumph, which the
Other did not fail to
Having tightly bound th 4 hands of his cap- .

his dress for any other weapons, took away
his'amMunition and putting both weapons
'Over his shoulder, told the white man to lead
We, way. This the ratter full of hope,
fear -and general anxiety, till he came in sight
• of his humble log dwelling,. situated in a
pleasant valley, through which flowed a pretty
little stream, a branch of "the Green river,
when the Itidian ordered [him to stop, and
proposed to make him ' fiist to a tree, by
t• means of another deer-skin thong secured to ;
: that around the wrists.
" Ain't yOu going to let hie go down to the
house with you ?" inquired the captive, now
_ beginning to - feel much alarm for the safety
of his family.
"Me-go alone 1" returnee the savage gruff
- ly. "Me big chief—want; scalp I"
" Oh, for God's sake, dOn't kill my poor,
. innocent wife and childreh !" pleaded Bow--

'are a great chief, I know, and you'll remem 7 .
ber that they never did ydu any harm I"
" Long-knife scalp much goodl" rejoined
the Indian 'sullenly, as h finished • binding
the other to a- tree, and strode away down
- the hill, carrying the two weapons with Win.
Bowditch watched him, htep by step, as he
glided- away under cover of the trees, keeping
. some rock, stump; or clump of Welles between
him and the•inmatea of the dwelling, so they

his,captive, he threw down the - ritle belong

started toward him on a run. Bowditdh,
, who had-watched every -motion,. and , knew ,
that in his rage the savage,Would brain and
scalp him,. now gathered all his- "strength,
and-made one desperate effort to, free him
self, acting rather from the instincts of self
preservationthan from any hope of success.
But to his greatly, - his, unspeakable ;joy,
he 'heard' arid felt his bomis strain; crack and
snap-, and suddenly fotiMi
,himself free and
his arms at liberty. He looked quickly and
ar,onnd, almost disposed to doubt his
senses—to discredit his good fortund-Lfor
any fortune seemed good- which - give him
even a bare chalice for his life where he ex
pected only certain death. The Indian was
at least a hundred and fifty yards from him,
and his rifle 'unloaded and with a start in a
race for life—in a race' that invorved not
'only his own life but that- of his wife and
childroie--whe so swift of :hot as to.overtake
With a loud yell Of - mingled joy and -defl
anee, away he went over the hill, and with a
louder yell of rage at his unexpected escape,
the fierce•savage came bounding after him.
BoWditch knew every inch ofgroutl' iri 'that
vicinity, and lie had already regained sari
dent presence of mind to sliape his course so
as to take advantage of all the chances in his
favor. The hill. about the- summit was Et
sudeession of mks: and bitshes, , with caves,
chasms and *precipices,
,and over, through,
and along these natural obStructions the fu
gitive believed be could make his way with
any man living, either white or rid, and so
took the most troublesome route for•his lar
ger and more unwieldy pursuer, resolved,
should he by, chance find the latter gaining
on him, to double on him at a certain Cave
not more than half a mile distant, where he
could enter, by-following one of the, labyrin
_thian passages within, and, could eotrie;out
61i the same Side into a thicket not more
than fifty,feet from the main opening.
tOokingback occasionally, as he fled along
his rdeky way with the ease of a mountain
goat, Bowditch soon discOvered that how
ever superior to him his adversary might .be
in mere physical Strength, he was no match
fOr him in speed in that particular locality;
and this not only inspired him with the hope
Of escape,: but , with such confidence' in his
own resources, that he began. to calculate in
turn how - best he might compass the destruc
tion of his foe.
, not lure him into the cave," he;
muttered; "and let him fool his time- round'
thar, Wkilst I, start back arter-my rifle, and
follow up the audacious whelp ? 171 do it,
and if I don't get even. with him, then it's a
clear case tortin's against trie."
- Having come to this determination, 'Bow:-
ditch slackened his chase till his pursuer was
in full view, when he -pretended to stumble
and fall, and then got up and ran with !sil
limp, which caused the savage to yell with.
ferce delight and redouble his - exertions'
overtake him. This was exactly what he in-'
tended,to bring about,. and he now managed
his pace with so much deception, that, though
seeming to exert himself to the utmost, he
permitted the pantin g savage to gain a little
every minute, till the mouth of the cave was
reached, at which time not'niore than a am
dred paces divided them. = The Indian saw
the fugitive disappear in the dark opening,
and believing that he now ' had hint secure'
'once more, he cameboundingueand plunged
in after him with a -yell- of triumph. The
settler, who knew every twist and turn of
,every passage in the cave—and there were
many—now uttered a sort of wailing groan
- from the center, to urge - the Indian on, and
then quietly slipped off in a different diree
tion, and reached the bright open-air about
the same time the, other did the middle of
"New, then ffr it," muttered Bowditch, as
he slipped over the brow of the hill and ran
, toward his dwelling, which, owing to the
.ridge bending round the valley, in the shape
of. n magnet, or horse shoe,was scarcely us
1, far distant as when be calld to his wife:,
His family saw him,. and with a cry ofj(iy
his wife threw open the door, -'
"Quick, Esther!" he exe,aimed, as he
came up panting•; ,t'other powder-horn and

the wife, in surprise and alarfii;

and without waiting for a reply, he ran out
in - the direction of his rifle, hiS wife Vainly
calling for him, and entreating him to come
back, and not risk his - life foolishly. . . •
As soon as he .once more got hold of his
rifle, he hastened to load it, and felt, as he
afterwards expressed it, "like a new Man."
Then keeping himself as much under cover
as possible, he hurried up to a point where
he could secrete hiinself and command a fair

meeting, who, on taking the chair, made the
following address ;

hers of the Hartford ConVention as traitors,
and also the Tories of the Revolution : be

other ? Moreover, are not the anti-war
Democrats acting in sympathy and harmony

TITE FOURTH OF JULVIS6R,
From the London Star f July 2)
- WITH DEEP, 'DEVOUT AND GRATEFUL JOY
we publish to-day the news of victories that
are the heralds of ahappy peace. Seldom; if
ever, has it been the lot of the journal*, to
gnnounce on the same -sheet two -events of
such transcendent importance as the' fall of
Vicksburg and the retreat of Lee. Thij glo
rious Fourth of July lies indeed received:a
glorious celebration. In tens of thousands of
Northern honies the birthday of Ameriqii
freedom was-being liept with mingled
and fcar, = -with blended - inetnoriesofjOy acid
sadness, of pride and humiliation. * Through
put RekEngland, and the populous Middle
States, and the vast North-west—in cities that
date back from our own heroic' seventeenth
century ~and iii cities that have sprung up
within the memory of living men upon the
site-of world-old forests or on virgin prairies
—around the Pilgrim's
_Rock and on the gold
sown strand of the Pacific—citizens- of the -
Great Republic spake with tremul6us lips, as
'beneath the-shade of laurels twined with cy
press, of their fathers' legacy of freedom, sand
of the deadly struggle in which -their own
brothers and sons were wrestling for the pre
servation of that glorious heritagethetnion
sacred alike to liberty and,law. :They knew
riot that on that very . day the' God .of their
country and of their sires—Abe God of justice
and of mercy—had vouch - sated to the com
monwealth a great &Wtranee. Their bro
ken ra.lways and telegraph lines delaytd the
happy tidings that on that same Fourth of
July the flat; of - the Union had been exalted
over the obstinate stronghold of rebellious
slave:masters, and the sun had risen upon the
greatest of their hosts in'dire retreat. 'What
ever remains to be done or suffered—whatever
hkttles to be fought or fortresses to besiege- , .-
, the arinies.and people of, the Union may at
'least rejilice, with u-nutterable gladness and
thanksgiving, that the boastful 'progress of
the'eneruy has been turned back and the very
Chiefest of his defences -broken dOwir.
There is one proof of good or bad adminis 7
tration-of a State's affairs that alltpeople Will
'reeognia-e:and appreciate,- and that is found
in the management of its finances. Gov.
Curtin's' administration -tan be submitted,-to
this test. - He has just issued his proclama
tion announcing that the State debt has been
reduced, during the past year;Nine Hundred
and Fifty-four Thousand, Seven-Hundred
and Twenty Dollars. and Forty-Cents ($954,
't•lOdu.) So splendid a result, in a time of
war, is surprising, and the people of Penn
sylvania have reason to congratulate thein: ,
selves - upon it. The finances of the State,
have been wisely faithfully, economically
and honestly managed. Would it not be the
height of folly to change a State administra
tion that has done so well., and put new and
untried- men into office? Would 'it not be
ingratitude ,of the worst kind, to dismiss 'a
Governor who has proved -so faithful, and
under whose hands the burdens of State tak
ation are yearly coming down? We have no
'fears that Governor Curtin will be defeated.
The people know him; honor him and trust
him, and he has so many claims upon their
confidence, that it -is scarcely necessary to
bring 'before them this claim founded upon
his nduction of the' State debt. - But vie
want to see him re-elected .by .such a revising
Majority as will forever silence and crush
the Copperheads who are calumniating him
and trying, to brim , '' Pennsylvania_ into al
liance with the rebel States by electing Geo..
W. Woodward. We wantto haves the reb=
els and. Copperheads taught by Pennsylvania
a lesson like they have been taught by Maine,
but on a much larger scale.—Philadelphia
A BRA-VE hiArre ANswEtt.—General

"lie sleeping beneath the sod; and othe. - 7s
