It would have made a beautiful picture.
The poor Indian lay on the ground at full
length, his head resting in the I.ip of Kate,
his bosom heaving with the cflort to breathe,
while the blood, despite the appliances, ev
er and anon, silently flowed from the
breast, or rattled and gurgled within, at
every breathing. Henry Buel bent over
him as tenderly as a brother,,wiping his
brow, and frequently applying cold water
to his lips, and washing his face with the
same. The bright glare of the fire showed
every chunge in his face.

voice, " you are badly wounded, and you

"Why, 'sposc him worth fifty silver

Very well. Now the stock which you
so much admire, was made of that root

"What for you nsk ! You curiosity ?"
'No. But as a Christian and a believ
er in the Bible, 1 feel anxious about your
spirit. Oh! why didn't I talk with you
about it before, when you were well ! Do
you know anything about Jesus Christ !
Did you ever hear of mercy through him ?"
"Me know much about that. Long. lone
time ago, me very young, go east of Alba
ny to see Indians at Kaunaumeek(Nassau).
In a little log house, in green wood, live
pale man, all 'lone nobody but Indians
near him. He look sick, but meet Indian,
talk to them out of the Spirit-Book, he pray
with them. Make much prayer, and ma
ny times look on Indian, ar!d say 'poor
friends!' and his eyes run down with tears.
Me stay many months, and learn much
from him."
"But could he speak the Indian Inn
guage?"
"No ; but he have young Indian, John

he say and make him into Indian,"
"What can you remember about his

The tears ol beautiful Kate fell fast up
on the face ol the dying man. She gently
called him 'brother," he could speak no
longer. The young officer look his hand,
but it was cold. The bosom heaved gent
ly a few trmes and was still. Not a finger
straightened or moved as his spirit left the
body.
"Who would have expected a poor Indi

die a death so beautiful !" ssid Kate.
"I Ime t.ken care of that. I have tie-

" Buried him ?''
" Yes ; bat so deep iu the Lake that no

him up in his on blanket, and then in

'You look tired, Henry!''
"I am ; but it is n.t safe to remain here,
even if my business were not most urgent."
Kate cast a umurnli! look on the beau

Maj. O'Brien, an army officer, who
served with distinction and lienor at the
battle of Buena Vista, died at Indianolrt,
Texas, on the 30th of March, in the 32 d
year of his age, of cholera. He was First
Lieutenant in Ccpt. (now-' Lieut. Col.)
Washington's company of flying artillery
when it was stationed at Carlisle, Pa., a
fuw years ago. He was acting as quarter'
master, which pest he had resigned, and
was preparing to rpjoin the 4ih Artillery in
Santa Fe. when he was cut down by the
prevailing epidemic. His last words were,
"Not rny will, but thine, O, Lord, be done."
His wife and children were in New Or
leans at the-time, making preparations to
accompany him to New Mexico.
A Frenchman who had heard the phrase
'I've got other fish to fry," and learned its
application, was one day invited to go and

"As ynti enter, a woman iWes and sa
lutes you timidly. She is not so old as she
looks, for she is careworn and sickly. She
has on infant in her arms ; and thtee other
children, two girls and a boy, are roiling
along the dump uneven brick floor at her
feet. They have nothing on thpir feet.be
ing clad only down to the knees in similar
fjnnnents of rag and patchwork. They are
filthy ; and on remarking it, we are told,
whiningiy, by the mother that she can
not keep them clean. By-and by, another
child enters, a girl, with a few pieces ol
dry wood, which she has picked up in the
neighborhood lor fuel. Nor is this the
whole family j et. There are two boys,
who nre out with their father at work ihe
three betnp expected in every moment to
dinner. They enter shortly afterwards.
The lather is surprised, and lor a little.cv
idently somewhat disconcerted at the intrusions-doubtful
as to whether it may bode
him good or evil. We soon put him at
ease and the family proceed to dine. The
eldest girl holds the child, whilst the mo
ther takes the pot from the tire, nnd pours
out of it into a large dish a quantity of po
tatoes. This, together with a little bread,
as has been depicted above, tha rocital

I have been a traveler, now, for up
wards of twenty years. . I have been in
the "quarters'' cf the negro slave of the
cotton and sugar regions, and in the wig

they are infinitely more commodious and
comfortable than the lubilclicn j.ir-t de
