.# considerable' portion of our early life was
passed on the shores of the Upper Mississippi ri
ver, about .ear hundred miles above St. Louis.
It was in the primitive times of that country—
thr we are now considerably apart the " days of
our youth"—consequently St. Louis was our near
est and only trading post. This being the case,
we, the settlers, had frequent occasion to make
voyages between the two points—that is, between
our settlement at the village of Hamburg, now in
Calhoun county, and - St. Louis: _
I remember, when a mere boy, of accompany
ing my father on tine of these voyages, which was
made with a raft load of barrel staves for the St.
Louis market. Near the then little village of
Alton, Illinois, we were forced to lie up for
bad weather, and I recollect we made our camp
h kind of cavern Which may now be seen in
the high.cliffs just above Alton.
While we were waiting for the weather to
change, two canoe loads of Indians passed down
close to our side of the — river; an occurrence so
common that we paid no attention to them until
they had reached a point some two hundred yards
below us, when they attracted my - attention by all
suddenly rising to their feet and discharging their
rifles situultaueowily at the face of the cliff. My
father, who was near at the time, in reply to my
evinced astonishinent, told me they were shooting
the Pirasan, and if I desired, he would give me a
sight of it.
Reaching the place where the Indians bad fired
at the cliff, my father pointed upward and there
upon the smooth rock beneath an over-sheltering
ledge I beheld the picture of some frightful look
ing monster, done in red paint, and having the
appearance of being a veryancient piece of In
dian workmanship. Time and tens of thousands,
of rifle balls had considerable defaced it, yet its
outlines were clearly ,traceable. The monster
was represented in two views—one as flying, and.
the other as lying ;Upon its back With ite feet
- turned upward, as if dead. Its general shape was
somewhat-like that of the vampyre bat; and the
painting madelis size about equal to the size of
- an ordinary horse. From its mouth protruded
immense tasks—in short- it was, taking it, all in
all, a truly frightful repiesentation, well calcula
ted to make a deep impression upon my youthful
nerve,;! *
" This,".said my father, " is the Pirasan : these
arethe Pirasan Bluffs, and that narrow shoot we
ran yesterday was the Pirasan 5h00t,..--each tak
its name from what .you see before you, and the
Indian tradition connected_ therewith. Perim,
let us sit down upon the rucks here and I will
tell you the story as I have heard it from the In
diana many a time.
"Very, v er y king ago there lived within a cav
ern high up among these cliffs, a monstrous flying
beast known to the Indian tribes of the Missis
sippi Valley, as the Pirasan. It fed upon_men,
and 'was so formidable thut all tai skill of the an
cient people brought to bear with a view of its
.destruction.availed them nothing. It continued
its ravages -year after year, sailing like an eagle
through the upper air, and pouncing down upon
its helpless victims, until whole tribes disappear
ed to feed • its hungry maw. It spread terror
through all the nations to such a degree that no
one would, finally, venture forth from his hiding
' p l ace to provide for the necessaries of life, - and
consequently, until famine bade fair to meet it
half way in the total destruction of the human
" At length a mighty chief by the name of We,.
hen, bethought himselt of fsoing and prayer.—
For two whole moons he fed ou - .bitter roots, and
prayed to the Great Spirit to deliver them from
his wrath ; and at last the Great Spirit h e ard his
petition, and visited him in n dream; teiting
yo rise on the morrow and select from among bi
people two of kis most skillful bowmen. Baring
placed them in concealment in a designated clump
of bushes, be was to place a man near them, man
'open space, to attract the Pirauan., it would de.
wend for its intended prey, when tho ncwtnan
were to.discharge their arrows. which arrows the
finger of wisild — guide iiithe
heart otthe monstrit,pd_ thus a hopeless enemy
would he placed within-their power..
" Withboisrese in the worn and the
good news . among his people. .The wildest joy
prevailed, in the -midst of which all thePrepars,.
tions were made is: :d-4 archers were
in the cluMpi:d 'Widow; and the' m an wan stand
ing out. Soon a faipt spit was seen in the sky,
passing round and round inn oircW. Presently
it stood still for' a =mid; and then with th e
velocity of a " fallen star" dawn it'came to
the earth, An awful rushing through the air, a
of mighty wings, the sullen twang of two bo
strings, the eries of a doomed victim as be Ava.
borne off towards the'Pimsan Bluffs, and all • •
over.' -The bowmen had missed theiitaark,
" That day a sadder gloom than ever hung over
thii tribe of 'fflahoo. Added to the evident fact
that it must shortly pass away, then mach esteem
ed chief had deceived them and caused a growl&
less tuipeto Mate for a moment bleach heart only
. to out and,make the darkness more visible.
Many were the imprecations uttered against him,
but still Wahoo , despaired not. Ho contained to
pray to the Great fully convinced that the
vision had been real' and that the fault tvas owing
to some - misunderstanding - of his own. So it
seemedjor in. the next night the Great Spirit
again aPpearedoreiterated the same commands,
making no mention oftvh at had happened the day
before. . - -
" When morning was coma Walla) arose to re
peat hie preparations ; but this time he found him
self thwarted in the fact that hie people had lost
confidence. The bownufn were ready to act their
part, but no one could be found who was wilimg
to risk exposing his person for the purpose of de
coying the Pirasan. But Wahoo had faith, and
so he at once settled the matter by taking the
dreaded position himself. ' •
" Suspense on this occasion was short, - A
little while and the Pirasan came - down to—rise
no more. The fatal arrows pierced ite vitals, and
it fell upon the kneeling Chieftain: With a rend;
lug yell the warriors leaped upon it, but Rot in time
to save their much loved leader—in its dying
throes the monster bad crushed him to death.
"Wahoo was buried amid lamentation and teen,
and as a monument to hie memory and d symbol
of his usefulness while living, the Great Spirit
caused a healing shrub te spring up from his grave;
and to spread throughout the great Mississippi
Valley bearing his name and bringing _ blessings
to all hie rising people. The litissanwaliconvey
ed to the Pirasan Bluffs and there painted_ upon
the nicke—as you see it. So says the tradition."
In conclusion we any add that it haabien usage
of passing Indians to discharge their guns at the
picture of the Pirasan from time oat otdate—that
is, fat back as thetime when the location was first
known to civilization. When we last vilited the
the spot we noted a space forseteral yards round
the picture which was literally battered with
bullets. The painting now is entirely gone, the
rock having been removed to Alton and St. Louis
to be used for building • purposes.
A. HORRIBLE AFFAIR Di 01110.-T-The Cleve
land Limier tells a story ofa horrible affair which
oceured last week in Stow township, Ohio. - A
wealthy copperhead farmer named William Gra
ham bad promised to give one hundred dollars to
the draft fund, in order to fill the quota of the
town; but afterwards refused to pay. The young
men of the district determined to hold him to his
promise,' and It was resolved that a company of
twenty of them - should call en trim. They accord
ingly mounted, and were riding over to his farm,
*heti, 4t some distance from it, they - Were sud
denly ordered to halt by Graham, who had beard
of their intentions, and armed himself with two
revolvers-and a double-barrelled rifle, and plant
ed himself in a covert near Stow Corners.—
The Cavalcade halted, when Graham fired and
brought down one of the meu with a shot in - the
left side. He immediately shot another through
the, head, killing him instantly; The young men,
as . they were defenceless, scattered AS dashed
away. Graham approached the man first shot,
who was still living; and dispatched him with a
shot through the forehead. A surgeon was sum
moned by the young men, but Graham stobd over.
the corpses and would not mllow:hins to come
near, threatening to kill him if the made he at e _
tempt. He declared that would give himself -
up to the trustees of tbe town, if they woubl o come -
witteaflag of truce and pledge him proteetion.—
Presently the sheriff of the county, with a posse,
arrived ,from Akron, but on their approach Gra
ham ran, and was captured only' alter - receiving
a shot in his right arm, which completely disa
ble&han. He was arrested and taken to Akron.
WONDERS OF GEOLOOX.—More th 4 nine
thonaand different kinds or animals - - have - been
changed into stone: The races or genera of more
than half of these are now extinct,- not being at
present known in a living state. From the re
mains of some of these ancient animals, they must
have been larger than any living animals now
known upop the face-of the earth. The Megath
erium, (Great Beast) says Buckland,from a skel
eton nearly perfect, in the Museum. at Madrid,
was perfectly colossal. With a head and neck
like those of a sloth, its legs and feet exhibit those
of the armadillo and the anteater. Its fore feet
were a yard in length and more than twelve
inches wide, terminated by gigantic claws. Its
thigh bone was nearly three times -as thick
as that of the elephant, and its tail, nearest the
body, was six feet in circumference. Its (Mike
'were, admirably fitted for cutting vegetable sub
stances, and its general structure and strength
were intended to fit it for digging in- the ground
for roots, on which it principally fed.
THE BRAVE Boy.—The youth that has the lack
raLcuarage to say 1 will not do it, because it is
wrong; is brave enough for a generaL It he can,
eveirthough taunted, rebuke bin fellows for evil
acts, lie is truly brave. Such a characteralways
moulds the elements of mind around him; cam--
ing almost unlimited sway, and is respected by
even the worst of his playmates. It requires an
effort to stand for the right at times, but, if it is
successfully done, the road to honor and tenth is
easy to travel and by his example many are in
duced to walk in it. This kind 01 bravery givesevery
boy a conscience that stamps in bold characters,
parity- of thought, highness of purpose and integ
rity of heart, upon his open brow. One of the
world's renowned. one whom we love and cher
ish, George Washington, was a brace boy.
OLD Ricicerrs wait' man of labor, and had
little or no time to devote to ipeouititiona in the
future. He was, withal; rather uncouth in the
Be of language. One day, while engaged in stop
ping hog holes about his place; he was appraisal
.ll by a colpurteur, and presented with a tract.
"Whatis this about?" demandedßicketta. "That,
sir, is a book describing the celestial state," was
'the — reply. "Celestial state l" said RiCkette.-
- Where the deuce is that?" "My worthy friend.
Hear that you have not—" "Well, nevermind," -
interrupted Ricketts, "I do not want to hear
about any better state than old Pennsylvania. I ---
iutend to live and die right here, if I can only
:keep them darned hogs out," •
