BUTLER, PA., WEDNESDAY, JUNE T, 1882
Story ol tlie MasnHcre of llie
Gnadenhutten, when translated,
means 'tents of grace,' and at this
! quiet spot with a holy name was per
jietrated a wholesale butcher}* of inno
cent people which will always remain
a foul blot on the early history of Ohio.
Twenty-nine men, twenty-seven women
and thirty-four children were slaughter
ed. Two buildings were selected
for the horrible purpose, the women
and babes being killed in one, the men
and boys in the other. It is recorded
that they died almost cheerfully, the
hymns and prayers of those about to
perish mingling with the death groans
of their unhappy companions. The
story of the crime and the circum
stances which led up to it forms an in
teresting but awful chapter in the
chronicles of the time.
In order that our readers may
thoroughly comprehend the significance
of the event it is necessary to go back
to the year 1750. It was then that
David Zeisberger, the Moravian mis
sionary, a man of rare piety, faith and
purity, was pursuing bis great work
among the Indian tribes. He suffered
hardships in the wilderness ; he endur
ed ill treatment at the hands of the
savage tribes whom he bad resolved to
convert, and never was heard to mur
mur a complaint. He worked wonders.
Qoing among the heathen he found
them demoralized by whisky sold to
them by white traders, wicked and un
scrupulous. He gently persuaded them
to relinquish liquor, and pointed out
its evil effects so forcibly that whole
tribes yielded to the fascination of his
eloquence and the weight of his argu
ments. From beiDg frenzied brutes
they became sober and reasonable peo
ple. His influence spread rapidly from
nation to nation. Thousands, in fact,
embraced Christianity; Zeisberger's
enthusiasm and piety carried all before
them. In 1700 great progress had
been made and the missions were
flourishing. But that same ycarcyents
occurred which greatly put back the
work of conversion. The Moravian
Indians were accused ot being concern
ed in Pontiac's conspiracy. He was a
brave and famous Ottawa chieftain,
who organized a plot among the various
Indian tribes to murder at a given time I
the English garrisons at all points. \
This was discovered, and, though it j
was never proved that the Moravian j
Indiaus took the slightest part in the '
conspiracy, they were persecuted as i
much as if they had. The Scotch-Irish j
settlers on the Pennsylvania frontier .
treated them with great harshness and .
severity. They pretended to believe— j
or perhaps were, in fact, so ignorant |
and bigoted as to believe—that the In- '
dians were the Canaanites of the Xew i
World, and that the existing war had
come upon the colonies as a judgment i
for failing to totally exterminate the !
native tribes. The Moravian Indians
being kind and gentle were very
naturally tit and fair quarry for these
highly civilized white settlers.
An interesting chapter in the history
of their early persecutions isthat which
treats of the narrow escape from ex
termination of a considerable body of
the Moravian Indians. The threats
against those who had settled on the
Pennsylvania frontier were of so deadly
a nature that David Zeisberger advised j
them to deliver up their arms and to
march to Philadelphia. They sought
refuge in the military quarters there, ,
but the soldiers threatened to kill them j
if they did not go away. The poor
refugees were mobbed by an excited
and angry rabble, and the streets rang
with yells and shouts which sounded I
as fierce as the warhoop of the savages, j
Zeisberger was with them all the time, j
standing by them and encouraging
them. A goodly number of (Quakers
who had suffered their share of cruelty
and persecution not so long before also
took the poor Indiaus by the hand, j
heedless of the groans aud curses of
the mob. They were finally removed j
to an island in the river as a measure '
of precaution. Their lives were provi- |
dentially preserved. A body of Scotch-
Irish, several hundred strong, from
Lancaster, calling themselves the'Pax
ton Boys,' after butchering a number
of Conestoga Indians, who bad sought
protection in a jail, marched toward
Philadelphia with the avowed object
ot killing all the Moravian refugees.
Zeisberger and others prevailed upon
them to relinquish their murderous de
signs and so the poor Indians escaped
with their lives on that occasion Some
of them, it is true, were reserved for a
worse fate and were brutally killed in
the Tuscarawas Valley. Meanwhile
the Indians were taken off the island
and conveyed to the upper Susquehanna i
region, beyond the Wyoming Valley,
where they built the hamlet of Frieden
shutten, or 'Tents of Peace.' About
1768 Zeisberger established stations ou
the Allegheny aud Beaver rivers.
It was in 1770 that a number of
Moravian Indians settled in the Tus
carawas Valley. They worked hard
tilling the fertile soil and living lives
of exemplary frugality aud industry.
The settlement flourished and Indians
flocked from the extreme West to the
pleasant tract in eastern Ohio. For
ten years all went well. The country
abounded in rich fields of waving corn.
Each house had its Itardeu and or
chard, peace und prosperity prevailed.
In 1780 the British incited a body of
Delawares commanded by Captain
Pipe against the little colony at
Unadeuhutten. They were joined by
a party of Wyandottes, and they
broke up the settlement, carrying the
Indians to Sandusky, aud their teach
ers to Detroit, the scat of the British
headquarters. It was in the follow
ing year that the slaughter took place,
, and this was how it came about. The
! poor people, who had been so cruelly
! kidnapped from their homes at Unad
enhutteu, left acres aud acres of corn
standing in the fields. A party was
1 chosen to return to harvest it, and
: | they accordingly took up their quar
j ters in their old houses which had
not been destroyed. .lust at t l ie time
of their return some hostile Indians
murdered a white settler aud all his
family. The frontiersmen were im
( mediately up in arm*. Although the
| Moravian ludians were guiltless of
I blood they accused them of aiding and
abetting the crimes and determined to
make an example of them. David
Williamson seemed to be the moving
spirit among them. lie organized a
; band, and with craft in the head and
and murder in the heart rode into the
Tuseawaras Valley and surrounded
the Indians. With friendly smiles
and smooth promises they greeted their
victims. Dissembling their true pur
pose they pretended that they were
solicitous as to their safety and wish
them well They finally induced
them to give up what ever arms they
had under the pretence of taking care ;
of them, and promised to conduct
them to a place where they would be
free to pursue their avocations with
out molestation. The guilless In
dians, to the number of ninety, were
completely deceived. They trusted
iiuplicity in the word of the white j
men, and at their suggestion set fire to j
a uumber of their houses in order to
prevent them becoming harboring j
places for hostile and fighting Indians. !
After they had surrendered their arras
the fell purpose of their captors soon
became manifest. They were made
prisoners, bound hand and foot and
confined in several of the houses.
DOOMED TO DEATH.
Then a council of war was held
and various methods of Jputting them
to death were discussed. Their fate
was soon decided, but it took a little
further time to determine the fittest
mode of butchery. One excited fron-
tiersman suggested that they should be
securely confined in two large houses
and burned alive. The idea was met
with shouts of approval, but one who
had an eye for future glory advised
that the victims should be tomahawk
ed and scalped. He said that it was only
riirht and fair that they should have
some trophies of their campaign, and
what more appropriate than the bleed
ing scalps of the doomed Christian
ludians? Though approving cries
were accorded to the man who propos
ed burniug them to death it is written
that the scalping and tomahawking
suggestion was received with even
a greater demonstration of delight.
It was at once adopted. The follow
ing morning was appointed for the
bloody deed, and the Indians were
told that they must die on the mor
row. At first they were inclined to
treat the affair as a joke. They
could not believe that the
whites were capable of such barbarity.
Tne demeanor of their captors, how
ever, soon showed that it was no
laughiLg matter. They realized that
they must die How did they behave ?
Never was truer heroism manifested
than by that band of unlettered In
dians who had nothing but faith to
buoy them up. The night was pass
ed in prayer. Hymns of praise were
chanted and each one vied in encour
aging the other to face death in Chris
tain fortitude They had previously
been divided in two parties and im-
prisoned in two largo Louses. The
murderers kept watch outside. The
plaintive hymns of the doomed Indiau3
ascended heavenward, but produced
no softening effect upon the hardeued
hearts of the white savages.
At sunrise preparations for the
crime were made. Two buildings
were selected, and were appropriately
called 'slaughter houses.' The men
and boys were to be killed in one,
and the women aud babes in the
other. All being ready the slaughter
began. Never had the sun risen on a
more inhuman spectacle. The butch
ers wero white men,.presumably Chris
tians, the victims red men, women
and children who had done no wrong.
Babes were torn from their mothers'
arms, brained with tomahawks and
scalped in sight of their shrieking and
heart-broken parents. The slayers
almost waded in blood. After the
children had been dispatched came the
womens' turn. Dragged one by one
by their Jong dark hair in the centre
of the shambles they were soon hur
ried into eternity by one quick and
stunning blow from a tomahawk.
Their scalps were then cut off after
the most approved Indian fashion.
The white men were intoxicated with
the slaughter. While the women aud
babes were being thus brutally slain
in one house the men and older boys
met with a similar fate in another.
It is useless to dwell on the horrible
crime. After ninety victims had been
despatched, David Williamson and
his gang marched back to their homes.
David Zeisberger was horror-stricken
when he heard ot the massacre. He
did not, however, relax his efforts to
convert and civilize the Indians. It is
| recorded that after a lapse of sixteen
! years some of his converts led by Zeis
berger returned to the Tuscawaras
and settled there once more. Their
stay was short. The influx of the
whites was so great, the temptations
of rum so strong, the outrages so fre
quent that the fertile valley was soon
forsaken by the Indians, who retired
first to Canada and then to the Mora
vian mission station in Kansas. The
good and pious Zeisberger died in
1808, having labored for sixty years
among the red men
Such then, is a brief story of the
massacre of Gnadenhutten. It is hard
in these days to imagine such a state
of affairs that could lead to so heartless
a slaughter. It Is also pleasant to re
flect that a repetition" of so monstrous
a crime would be impossible anywhere
in these days of civilization, the State of
Missouri not being excepted.

TLe prevailing high prices lor al
kinds of meat is the subject of mud
anxiety to house-keepers, who fear a
meat fam : ne. Since last fall theprice. ;
have been slowly but gradually in
creasing, although it has only beeu
within the past four weeks that sudJen
jumps have btv.j made in the cost ol
meat, as well as of other farm produc
tions. The high prices of to-day, say
the more reliable among the wholesale
dealers, are not at all likely to change
this year, except that there may be a
slight and temporary reduction when
the grass-fed cattle come in about the
middle of next month. The reason
why was ascertained by means of a
series of calls on the principal vendors
in the wholesale trade yesterday after
noon. They are very jolly people to
talk to—these butchers.
Said one, whose opinions were en
dorsed by a "So say we all of us" in
the fraternity: "There are several
causes for the high prices which peo
ple have to pay for theii steaks and
roasts nowadays The principal oue
is the scauty grass and corn crops in
the west. A large number of cattle
died because of insuiiicient food and
those which survived curne into the
barns light in flesh and generally in a
very poor condition. There the supply
of corn was so light that breeders were
compelled to buy at high prices, and it
cost a great deal to fatten up a lean
beast for market. Some herders who
had no money with which to buy corn
gent their cattle to the shambles at a
very low price, thus creating a waste
in the supply. The western States,
therefore, cannot keep up with the de
mand and charge prices in proportion.
Another cause for the decreased sup
ply is found in the f>ict that foreign
shipments have been greater than dur
ing any previous year, and we have
left only a limited quantity for home
"What has been the percentage of
increase in price during the past
month, for instance?"
"Well, four weeks ago we were sell
ing a good grade of fourquarters of
beef for 8 cents per pound; to-day that
abrade sells readily for 10^cents. Hind
quarters, which commanded 14 cents
then, arc sold for 14inow. One cause
af this discrepancy is shown in the
fact that hindquarters had previously
increased so much in price that people
refused to purchase them, and there
was created a large demand for fore
quarters. The price of 'the after part
jf the critter' therefore only went up
one-half a cent, but the general average
increase is $1 per 100 pounds.
"Dees this effect your sales ?"
"I should say it did, more especial
ly as it regards beef."
' How iong are these pri.es to be
kept up ?"
"At present nobody anticipates any
material change this year. It takes
four years to build an ox into proper
ihape for slaughtering and it does not
seem as if the small number which
will mature this year can make the
slightest difference in the market.
Boarding house keepers and men of
small means have a dark prospect
ihcad this summer and fall. These
people generally buy round steak, be
cause it is cheaper, and the demand for
such steak increases daily.— Boston
In the House ol Lords last Tues
day evening Karl Granville, Secretary
of State for Foreign Affairs, announc
ed the resignation of Mr. W. E. Fors
ter, Chief Secretary for Ireland, and
the intention of the Government to re
lease the three imprisoned members of
Parliament. Earl Granville explained
that Earl Cowper had not resigned the
Lord Lieutenancy on account of any
difference with the Government in re
gard to their policy. Ho confirmed
the report that Lord Carlingford would
temporarily take the Presidency of the
Council during Earl Spencor's absence
Mr. Gladstone, in the House of Com
mons, made an announcement similar
to that of Earl Granville in the House
of Lords. Mr. Gladstone stated that
a large number of other suspects would
be released, and that the Government,
instead of renewing the Coercion acts
would introduce a measure remedying
the administration of justice in Ireland.
He said that instructions had already
been sent to Ireland for the release of
the three imprisoned members of Par
liament, and that the lists of suspects
were being carefully considered with a
view to the release of all, except those
who wero arrested on suspicion of hav
ing been personally concerned in out
rages. These releases would be on the
Government's sole responsibility. Mr.
Gladstone stated that Mr. Forster had
resigned because he was not willing to
share this responsibility, and that Mr.
Forster would make a personal explan
ation on Thursday.
Mr. Gladstone declared that none of
the measures anuouueed in the Queen's
speech at the opening of the session
except the resolutions in regard to the
rules of parliamentary proceedure
would be allowed to stand iu the way
of the measures which the Government
would introduce for restoring peace
and order in Ireland.
The London Time x in its leader
says the policy now to be tried in Ire
land is one of concession and concilia
tion, pure and simple.
In the House of Commons on Thurs
j dav, Mr. Forster stated the reasons of
I his withdrawal from the office of Seere
i tary for Ireland. He said that in view
! of the great difficulty experienced in
i the affairs of Ireland he would have
: preferred, so far as be personally was
! concerned, to say nothing, lie con
i firmed the report that there was a dif
-1 ference between himself and the rest
! of the Cabiuet in regard to the release
' of the suspects, which release he con
demned. The Coercion act, he said,
| had broken up the League, or put it
under petticoats, and rents were being
better paid, but he feared that an un
conditional release would undo all the
good effects of the act. Mr. Forsler,
in justifying the arrest of Mr. Parnell,
said that Mr. Purnell, if he had been
allowed, would have become the un
crowned K-ing of I reland.

means that this continent has been dedi

education, light for every mind, knowl
edge for every child. It moans that
the school house is the fortress of liber

rive their just powers from the consent
of the governed ;' that each man is ac
countable to and for the Government,
in that responsibility goes hand in hand
with liberty. [Applause.] It means
that it is the duty of every citizen to
boar his share of the public burden, to
take part in the affairs of his town, his
cjuuty, his Stat;' and his country. It
means that the ballot-box is the ark of
the covenant; that the source of
authority must not be poisoned.
[Cheers.] It means the perpetual
right of peaceful revolution. It means
that every citizen of the Republic
native or naturalized, must i»e protect,
ed, at home, in every State, abroad, in
every land, on every sea. It means
that all distinctions based ou birth or
blood have perished from our laws;
that our Government shall stand be
tween labor and capital, between the
weak and the strong, between the in
dividual and the corporation, between
want and wealth, and give and guaran
the simple justice to each and all.
[Applause.] It means that there shall
be a legal remedy for every wrong. It
means National hospitality, that we
must welcome to our shores the exiles
of the world aud that we may not
drive them back. Some may lie de
formed by labor, dwarfed by hunger,
broken in spirit, victims of tyranny and
caste, iu whose sad faces may be read
the touching record of a weary life,
and yet their children, born of liberty
and love, will be symmetrical and fair,
intelligent and free. [Applause.]

What Noah's Wile Said.
"Draw near thine ear, I pray thee,"
said Noah, as he sat smoking his good
clay pipe by the fire, after haviug fed
the animals their evening meal and
shaken up their bedding. "What
would my lord ?" replied Mrs. N.,
drawing near her ear, as commanded.
Noah smoked in silence for the space
of a minute or two, and then opened
his mouth and spoke as follows: "I
perceive by the indications, mother,
tb«t the storm which was central over
the Euphrates will move westerly to
the Nile Valley on the morrow, with
areas of low barometer and north-east
erly winds, and sbowery weather on
the Arabian coast. I have been mov
ed, therefore, to jettison a part of our
cargo, fearing that our supplies will
give out ero the flood subsides. What
animal thinkest thou can best be spar
ed, love ?" And Mrs. N. looked out of
the window, listened a moment to the
pattering drops on the roof, and replied
sweetly, "The rain, dear." And at the
sound of her voice Noah wept like a
child, and the animals wailed iu unison,
and there was misery unspeakable
where all had been so calm and tran

appeal ance at the residence of Joseph

giving all the instructions as to the
manner of selling the work, the agent
was about to leave, when he thought
it would be well to have Mr. .Sage's
address. He pulled out a piece of pa

his signature thereon. Mr. Sage did
so, and the oily-tongued Bible agent
departed. Mr. Sage thought no
more of the matter until one day this

A SiircaHtio Letter.
The following letter, written by
San.uel Johnson to the Karl of Ches

J, advances made in time of need, but
' who wished to be his patron when ho
found that Johnson's- Dictionary was

fur the polish of its stylo, the elegance
of its language, and especially the
keenness of its sarcasm :
MY LORD—I have been lately in

i that two papers, in which my Dic
tionary is recommended to the public,
were written by your lordship. To be '
so distinguished, is an honor, which,
being very little accustomed to favors
from the great, I know not well how
to receive, or in what terms to acknowl

( was overpowcri !, like the rest of man
kind, by the enchantment of your ad
j dress; and could not forbear to wish
I that 1 might boast myself Le vainqueur

might obtain that regard for which I
saw the world contending ; but 1 found
my attendance so little encouraged,
that neither pride nor modesty would

I had exhausted all the art of pleasing

or one smile of favor. Such treatment
I did not expect, for I never had a
The shepherd in Virgil grew at last

Is not a patron, my lord, one who
looks with unconcern on a man strug
gling for life in the water, and, when
he has reached the ground, encumbers
him with help? The notice which
you have been pleased to take of my
labor.-*, had it been early, had been
kind; but it has been delayed till I am
iudifferent, and cannot enjoy it; till I
am solitary, and cannot impart it; till

hope it is no very cynical asperity not
to confess obligations where uo benefit
has been received, or to be unwilling
that the public should consider me as

South Carolina comes to the front
with a hideous tragedy. A seventeen
year-old girl, with an infatuation for a
handsome but poverty-stricken dry
goods clerk named Adams, was in
dued to discard him and marry a well
to-do farmer, Jacob Comely. The
knot was tied, but the old infatuation
lingered iu the heart of the bride, and
Adams, bv his surreptitious visits and
protestations to affection, fanned the
flame until it led the girl-bride to be a
party in acts of questionable reckless
nes. Three weeks after the wedding,
and in the absence of Mr. Comely,
young Adams visited the home of th<?
bride and spent the day and evening
The husband returned and surprised

through the window and escaped.
