THE INDIAN MOHAWK.
The following is the confession of the
Indian Mohawk, hung here on March
22d, 1844. It is taken from a copy of
the Democratic Herald of this place of
date April 10, 1844, as then published
in the same by the late Rev. Gottlieb
\ Bassler. Rev. Bassler was the prin
cipal spiritual adviser with Mohawk
i while he lay in prison here and prepar
[ edthe whole of the following narrative,
the first part of which, signed '•(*. B."
being intended as an introduction aud
explauation of what follows.
From what has lately appeared in
the CITIZEN in eounection with this
terrible murder of the Wigton family
by this Indian, nothing further need
bo added here, as the following exjdaius
"The following is the confession of
Samuel Mohawk, taken down from his
lips on the Thursday evening previous
to his execution. The third person is
used instead of the first for various
reasons, as it would have been impossi
ble to give his own language in many
cases, as frequently his moaning had
to be gathered from signs and explana
tions which could not be conveyed on
paper; this form of writing is likewise
more convenient. The substance, how
ever, of his own expressions is given
as near as the writer was able to do it
intelligibly. He maintained to the
iast that he was "crazy." That he
labored under some unusual and
utrange excitement of mind during the
whole of that eventful period which in
tervened between his leaving Butler in
the stage and returning a prisouer, ad
mits of no doubt. How far this would
extenuate his guilt, each one will, no
doubt, judge for himself. Of the truth
of the narrative, as far as Samuel Mo
hawk's recollection served him, the
writer bus no doubt. - Being frequent
ly with him, he had a good opportu
nity to become acquainted with his ex
ercises of mind after his imprisonment.
He always appeared docile; seemed
very grateful for instructions, and anx
ious to profit by it. He appeared from
the very first thoughtful and serious;
but only after his trial did he manifest
much contrition for sin. For some
time he [seemed bowed down on ac
count of his transgressions; felt as he
expressed it "very bad." In reading
the Gospel of Luke which had been
procured for him in the Seneca tongue,
he met with the incident of the young
man coming to Christ and askiug what
he must do to be saved. He saw that
he had broken God's law and deserved
death, eternal death; or, as he express
ed it, "to go to bad place." He was
pointed to the Lamb of God, and as we
humbly trust, looked up in faith. He
gave many pleasing proofs of being re
newed by God'fc Holy Spirit. He
earnestly desired to profess Christ, and
a short "time before his execution he
was baptised in the prison in the pres
ence of a few witnesses. There was
no alarm manifested by him in view of
his speedy and dreadful end. On the
day previous to his execution and on
the morning of the day itself, he convers
ed as usual, though there was more
solemnity in his appearance and con
duct than there had been previously.
He engaged with much earnestness iu
the religious exercises that were held
with him in his cell, especially those
that were held with hi:n immediately
before lie wus led out to the scaffold.
When he led in prayer himself, which
he did at the close of the exercises in
the cell, he seemed to pour out his whole
soul before God. As the awlul hour
arrived he manifested no unwillingness,
no hesitation, and made no delays.
He was very particular in haviug
everything properly adjusted. On the
scaffold he seemed to engage earnestly
| in the religious exercises.
Of tinging ho was fond, often en
gaging in it iu his cell. When the
liynin was sung on the scaffold, he
sang also, the hymn having been ex
plained to him previously. When the
hymn had been sung, he was asked
whether he bad anything more to say;
he answered, "guess not," which was
a common phase with him. He then
added, "me ready." He bade adieu to j
the Sheriff, the attendants, and his spir- :
itual adviser with much affection. When |
he shook hands with the writer he
smiled, as he usually did on meeting
him in his cell, and said, "rat see you,"
casting his glance upwards. When he
rose from his seat, when the rope was
adjusted, when the cap was drawn,
and during the eventful moment which
intervened before the drop fell, he was
calm and evinced not the slightest trep
idation as far as the writer was able
Such was the life and such the death
of this remnant of a peeled and no
doubt oft-wrocgcd people. We might
ask here what was the immediate
cause of all this crime, suffering, ex
citement, expense, and of the final
dreadful catastrophe. The answer
comes to us in a solemn, warning voice,
"Alcohol." This is what made of Sam
Mohawk, lirst a vagabond; this caused
him to wander from hi« home; this
stirred up the devil in him, and excited
the devils without him, to urge him on
to the dreadful deed for which he for
feited his life. The vender of the "lire
water" made a few shillings or dollars
at most; the State of New York receiv
ed something for the license; but what
a price! Seven lives! Leaving all
expense and waste of time out of our
calculation. Where is the guilt?
"Samuel Mohawk was born Decem
ber 25th, 180", in the Cattaraugus res
ervation, New York. His father's
name is John Mohawk; his mother has
uo Knglish name. Samuel was raised
at the above place; attended a Quaker
school for several years. His winters
were spent mostly in hunting; some
times he worked on a farm.—About I' 2
years ago he married l.ydia Ivypp.—
They had one son. About nine years
alter he was divorced from Lydia, and
soon after married Susan Silverheels,
who gave birth to one child, which
died during Samuel's imprisonment.
During the month of June, 1843, he
went to Lodi, about 8 miles lrom his
home, to have his gun repaired; here
he became intoxicated.—Does not rec
ollect, but supposes that he sold his gun;
recollects that be had four dollars iu his
hand, but does not know what he did
with the money. Started off without
any particular object in view ; went to
a tavern and drank cider; does not
know how much. Passed through Fre
douia, West Geld, Eric, Meadville and
Franklin. Near Erie he rode a short
distance in a one horse wagon; remain
ed in Erie only a short time. In
Meadville he stopped a little while and
got a cake to eat. In Franklin a black
man was killing a call and gave him
the heart, which he took to a house
and wished to have cooked. The in
mates refused to do so, but gave him
bis breakfast for it. Thinks he was in
Franklin on Tuesday. lie got liquor
at two places after he left this place.
Got no lodging, and was therefore
compelled to sleep on the ground in
the open air until he came to Butler.
He came to Butler on the morning
of the 29th of June; stopped at a
tavern, (supposed to be Graham's) in
quired for the doctor, and then pro
ceeded to Dr. Graham's. Got nothing.
Proceeded to a store at the corner,
(Cunningham's) and got some salts;
went as far as the bridge, turned and
stopped at a white house near the
bridge, (Negley's) where he b ot some
thing to eat, does not recollect what it
was; did not eat much. Then he
went away and lay down on the
ground until some person came down
and told him to return to the tavern.
Got up and went to Mr. Brinker's.
(Here Samuel was proceeding to
give a statement of what took place at
Mr. Brinker's ; but as the whole narra
tive-threatened to become tedious and
the hour was growing late, he was re
quested to omit all, until the time when
he was put into the stage.)
Was put into the stage—there were
three men in. The stage stopped at a
tavern, (Shleppv's) where Samuel took
a drink of water. There were three
Indians in the stage and two with the
driver. They stopped at the Stone
Tavern ; here he left the stage, and
went, he thinks, iu a eastern direction
into the woods some distance, where
he saw a great many stones and rocks,
and lay down to sleep, but was unable.
Heard a great many persons, white
men and Indians ; there was a great
light around him. He waited until
all the Indians aud white people had
passed and then returned and got into
a stage.—There were Indians stauding
around it, talking, saying, "where is
Sam Mohawk ?" "we can't find him;"
"Sam Mohawk gone." Oue Indian
said he would pay for finding Sam
Mohawk. During all this time he lay
in the stage, but did not sleep. He
went iu.o the house aud told the man,
(Mr. Sill) "I find him; I find Sam Mo
hawk; pay him." The man took up a
large Jstick aud threatened to strike
him—went out immediately and start
ed off up the road. It was very dark.
Heard an Indian behiud him : went to
the left of the road and lay down by
the fence. Lay about ten minutes—
got up and weut into the lield ; crossed
it., got into the woods aud lay down
besides a large log ; lay there a good
while—until day, but did not sleep.
Rose aud went forward—came to a
swamp—saw an Indian on horseback
«i(ter him ; ran to get into the woods,
and sat down in the bushes. Remain
ed about ten minutes, aud then
went on through the woods ; Indians
alter him—a woman too ; he concealed
himself until they had passed ; then
ran for some distance until he came to
a field and saw a house a great way off;
took up four stones, determined to ffght
them ; he fras angry because they had
followed him all night. They ran
away ; he heard them talk all round ;
walked some distance until he came to
another house. The Indians rode past.
He came up, determined to kill ; want
ed to kill the man first, but did uot see
him. Opened the door himself, enter
ed and saw the woman ; does not rec
ollect what he had done with the
stones, whether he still had them or
not. Asked the woman for an axe.
She said that she had none. Then
' asked for a knife, which she gave him.
t He immediately cut at her with the
knife; thinks he hit her on the arm.
She did not resist, but attempted to es
cape ; went out of doors—he followed ;
she returned into the house and tried
to close the door on him ; but he push
i ed it iu with both hands aud entered ;
I she went out again, he followed and
caught her about five rods from the
door —She resisted, succeeded in tak
ing the knifo from him—he fell, or she
threw him . she had the knife in her
hand and he held her wrists. Iu the
struggle the knife cut bis bead towards
the back part. He pushed the woman
off, rose aud struck her on the side of
the head with his fist. She said, 'You
uiusn't kill; I'll give you money.'
Made no reply ; took up a stick of
some size and struck her on tin; head
she fell; he then took a stone and
struck her on the head, and thought
she was dead. He weut into the
house with a stone tn his hand, thinks
it was the same with which he struck
the woman ; saw a child of 5 or (5 years
old, struck and killed it; saw another
child, a small one, thinks it was in the
cradle ; recollects that it was asleep,
but tiothiug about its appearance ; saw
it had life and killed it at once. Then
Le heard a child stairs; went
up with a stick and struck the three
children witl it on the head and then
went down and out to the spring to
gel a drink.—Looked toward the door
aud saw his sister Kmiliue there ; went
back to the house, but could not see
her anymore ; went in and then heard
j a child crying up stairs again. Went
i i out and got a large stick, and went up
stairs. One of the children on the
! I large bed was moaning ;be struck it
■ and it made no more noise. He then
i remained up stairs about half an hour,
expecting that some persons would
j come in and that he would have to
1 fight. He looked down the stairs and
; saw a woman, whom he supposed dead,
coming in and lyiug down on the floor,
where he went up, (the stairs) lying
partlv on the steps. Then saw another
woman coming iu and standing besides
the former one ; she was all white,
clothes, cap and all. He looked down
on one side of the stairs and she mov
ed to the other side, and when he look
ed down on that side, she moved back.
Then he went down and saw nothing
more of the woman in white. The
woman who was lying on the floor,
however, was moving, and he struck
her with a stone somewhat long in
form, (does not recollect whether it
was the same which he saw in the
Court House) on the head, thinks,
three times ; she moved a little wheu
he struck her. He thinks he went up
stairs again and found her cloak, threw
it over his shoulder without any partic
ular object iu view; went down aud out;
looked all round and saw about fifty
rods off a great number of Indians who
called out, 'White men, great many
white men a little way off; after you,
catch you.' (All the time he was
fighting with the woman, the Indians
were in sight.) Then went with the
stick in his hand through the wheat
field into the woods anil lay down a
few minutes; but heard the Indians
call out, 'the white men follow you.'
He rose, looked and saw a white man
pass by on horseback in the woods;
followed aud wanted to kill him, but
when he got there could see nothing
more of him. Came to the creek, pass
ed along the beach a little way and
then went straight across, it was a lit
tle more than knee deep. After he
crossed, saw a road, then came to a
fence, crossed it and lay down in the
bushes. Lay about 15 minutes—
heard voices—both white men and In
dians ; they said they had guns now
and could shoot him. He kept close
and did not look up. Heard his moth
er say be would die soon, lor he had
killed people ; heard his aunt and his
little boy talk too; did not see them, but
heard them talk. (Jot up and went to
wards his mother, desiring to see her,
but could not.
Saw a house and went towards it; a
man was standing in the road. Samuel
called out to him, 'l'll kill you.' The
man ran. S. had stones in his hands;
had lost the stick ; thinks he got the
stones iu the field. He followed the
man who ran away; then saw the
child and threw a stone at it; thinks
he hit it. (Knows nothing about a
dog.) Theu S. ran up the road from
the house ; heard the man call out to
get a gun. He ran into the woods,
where he saw a field before him ; he
was near the corner, where he sat down
against a tree. Looked up and saw
two women pass ; looked back and saw
the man following him with a gun;
saw him pointing the gun at him ; he
was then about five rods off; threw the
cloak off and stood behind the tree side
ways, and then ran away, passing
through a large field in which he stop
ped and looked back ; thought he
would have to fight and die now.
Could see no one for a little while ;
then saw a man running with a gun
through the field some distance from
him and going towards the woods. He
now paw a house and went to it with
a stick in his hand, struck the window,
entered the house, but found no one in.
Came out immediately and saw anoth
er house and went to it. Saw a man
standing at the house, and told him
that be would kill him. The man ran
around the house, hallooing. Samuel
went into the house ; saw no oue ; went
up stairs, saw a bed and lay down on
it, but could not sleep. Thought he
would die in that bed; that persons
would come and kill him. He had two
stones; heard a good many persons
around the house, white men and In
dians, saying, "Kill Sam." Looked
out of the window and saw Indians.
Jimison (an Indian) said, 'Sam Mo
hawk, bad man.' Jimison said that S.
sold his gun at Lodi to a white man
for forty cents ; that he was a very
wicked man ; that Sam Mohawk knew
that best ; that ho made property out
of anything; that he killed people back
a piece ; "bad man ;" "great man ;"
"Sam Mohawk, a chief."
Now Samuel saw the people below,
took the bedclothes and piled them up
at the door and sat on them ; supposes
it was to protect himself; knows no
other reason ; looked around and saw
a liddle, took it down and began to play,
then threw it down stairs. During
this time he had the stones beside
him ; saw a man coming up stairs,
took one of the stones, threw and
knocked him down. Heard them call
out, 'Kill Sam Mohawk.' Saw Indians
out of the window ; heard his aunt and
mother come up stairs and talk iu
another room ; they said, "you die
pretty soon." Saw a figure of a face
on the chimney which kept saying,
"pretty soon," "pretty soon ;" heard a
ticking; saw two figures shaped like
men aliout three feet and a half high,
which talked the same way as the
figure on the wall He went rouud
t!.c chimney aud sow near the bed a
shape like a small child; it made u
noise and cried like a child ; looked at
a cloth lying on the floor, which also
cried like a child Then the bed qujlt
seemed all alive, nunriu? up and down.
Lay down at the chimney, where he
heard talk close by, which said, "pret
ty soon," "pretty soon." Fire appear
ed to be proceeding from the mouth of
the figure on the chimney ; the figure
spoke, saying, that his brother-iu-law
Stephen was dead, that his father-in
law was dead too ; looked at the chim
ney ; it seemed to warm his face. He
saw a petticoat and put it on ; then
saw the people coming up stairs ; took
the remaining stone and threw it at
them ; thinks he did not bit anyone ;
they then rushed in and one man
struck him on the head with a stick
und knocked him down; thinks they
took him out then ; does not know any
thing about it, however, as he died,
Came to himself about !0 rods from
the house, lying on the ground; the
i petticoat had been taken off, as also
: part of his own dress: some man said
they must not undress him, and again !
arranged his dress. They then placed
him on his feet, and he saw the tree j
and spring; some one washed him, as
he was all bloody; he stood at the tree; !
a great many were around him, and (
some person said, "shoot him," he told :
the man shoot him in the head; the
j man said, hang him on the tree; and
Ihe told them to do so. He then asked
where the Indians, as he could see no
, more of them; they told him that there
I were none there. They then tied his
: hands and took him across the creek at
i the same pluce where he had crossed
| before, to the house where he had kill
| ed the people; he saw two men coming
! from the house with knives; thinks he |
| saw them since; they were large men; '
thinks he saw one of them during the
time of the excitement—they came to
wards him, gome ofthe spectators caught
them and told them not to kill him.
Then S. went into the house and saw
the woman; felt bad for about five
minutes, but no longer; heard them
talking and questioning him; they ask
ed where be bad left the cloak; he told
them at the corner of the field. Then
the 'Squire asked the white men
around, "who killed those people?
Did Sam Mohawk kill them ?" S. in
quired again for the Indians; they told
him there were no Indians there; he
thought still there were Indians there.
He wanted to see his mother to give
her his money; they said that she was
not there. They next took him up the
road and said they would hang him
there; he walked up to the house and
sang as he walked along; he told them
he did not want to walk, but to ride.
At the bouse they gave him something
to eat, and said they would hang him
across the road; the woman and girls
said they must not hang him. They
then started with him to Butler; he
said they should take him in a wagon:
he walked as far as the tavern which
he had seen on his way down frtnn
Franklin. Here he saw the wagon
which bad been procured to convey
him to Butler. An old man kicked

and said, "you mind that by and by;"
felt angry at him then and could have
struck him back; dou't feel anijry with
him now; could shake hands with him

Indians would say, "Sam Mohawk,
big face; bow long until you come
back V they also told him to pray.
He came to the jail, where he saw a
great many persons, among them, Mr.
Brinker. He asked Mr. 8., "what
you think ?" Mr. B. asked Samuel,
"what did you do?" He went into
the jail and out to the purup, washed
himself, and then went into the room,
where he saw two iron pokers stand
ing in the corner; some person removed
them; he wanted to strike with them—
The irons were then put on him. He
thought on the way down that he
would die that night. After the irons
were on him they left him, telling him
to take his rest. It soon became dark.
Saw two men coming in, they had no
light; he told them to take off his chain;
they agreed to do so; he told them first
to take out the bolt out of the floor,
and next to cut the bolt of the hand
cuffs; heard them filing at the hand
cuffs and at the bolt; they talk in In
diau; then there was a light in the
room; saw his youngest sister, Polly;
saw a man with her who said, "the
white folks will sell your body." He
said that to-morrow he would go home
with them; saw also his wife. The
two men tried all night to take otT the
chain; could not accomplish their ob
ject; he continued to tell them to take
off his chain. They said that they were
glad that he had killed folks; he prom
ised if they would take off his chain he
would kill more. He thought they
would not be able to take it off, but
said nothing; one of the men said,
"take it off easy." At daylight, S.
said, "take off now;" they replied, "to
night;" he insisted that it should be
done immediately. Told them then
that tbey could not take it off. Thought
then and still think that it was the
devil. Saw his wife and child, and felt
had. S. told the man that he was a
bad man; but be denied, S. told him
again that be was bad and that he
cheated him. The man accused S. of
being afraid that he would make him
black. Mohawk told hiin to go away,
which he did. S. then began to pray,
upon which the man said, "great Chris
tian;" supposes be said so lifty times.
Then heard Indians talk; thought two
Indians were put to jail, and told them
that he was put to jail too; requested
of Mr. Little that he might see the In
dians. Mr. L. said that there were
none there. About noon saw an In
diau woman at the door, who said ho
had long hair; that his clothes were all
tore, that he had a white shirt, &c.
In the afternoon the voices changed to
a different part of the room; the In
diun said, "Sam Mohawk good man
now." Some times heard an Indian
woman say that she wanted to see
him; she offered Mr. Little three cents
to admit her, but he would not take
them: she offered him one dollar, but
he refused that also. During the after
noon the preacher came to visit him;
S. told the preacher that he prayed in
the morning; the preacher said he was
glad, and prayed with S, prayed also.
An Indian said, "Sam Mohawk pray. 1
The same person said that they would
kill him in three days; S. thought lie
would die in three days. On Sunday
night ho saw and heard nothing.
Since that he some times heard voices
in the corners; they were Indian
voices. During the last two months
he has not been troubled in any way.
During the trial he felt very sorry
that he had broken the law; felt no an
ger except once when Mi. Sullivan
spoke about three balls on his forehead;
felt angry then for about two minutes,
but no longer. Whilst lie was sick, he
felt satisfied, thinking that he was
about to die. About two mouths a?o
felt bad; thought some times that he
should go to the bad place; was much
distracted in mind; does not feel bid
now, nor afraid to die now; "Jesus
wash his heart;" loves Jesus; give up
all to him; live and die in Jesus
A man with red hair entered a rail
road car at the union depot iu St.
Joseph, Mo., the other day and took
his seat. A moment later another man
with a fiery top-knot and vermilhon
whiskers came in and sat down besides
him. They looked at each other, but
said notbiug, until a third passenger
with a scarlet crest appeared upon the
scene. Then the youngest of the trio
arose and remarked, to the general
amusement, that he would do what he
could to prevent a conflagration in case
of accident by riding in another car.
He was on his way to the door when,
amid a roar of laughter that shook the
windows, a fourth passenger with a
head like a beacon light flamed into the
aisle. Then tho quartette sat down
together and made so much fun for the
rest of the passengers that everybody
was sorry when one after another got
out at their respective stations, each
leaving the car perceptibly darker at
How to Kill Cabbage Worm.
The ravages of the caterpillars of the
cabbage butterfly caused a good deal of
trouble last summer at the State Agri
cultural Experiment Station, Geneva,
N. Y.. particularly those of the second
or August brood In order to test the
efficacy of various reputed remedies
for the cabbage worm, the director ap
plied them to special collections of
worms, and noted the effects. One
specimen confined for three hours in a
bottle partly filled with black pepper
crawled away discolored by the pow
der, but apparently unharmed. The
second repeatedly immersed iu
a solution of saltpeter, and
a third in one of boracic acid, exhibit
ed little indications of inconveuienee.
Bisulphide of carbon produced instant
death when applied to the worm,
though its fumes were not effectual.
The fumes of the benzine as well as
the liquid caused almost instant death,
but when applied to the cabbages small
whitish excrescence appeared on the
leaves. Hot water applied to the cab
bage destroyed a portion of the worms
causing also tho leaves to turn yellow.
One ounce of saltpeter and two pound.*

soap and kerosene oil in three gallons

The growing cabbage presents such
a mass of leaves in which the cater
pillars may be concealed that it is hard
ly possible to reach all the worms at
one application. It is of importance,
therefore to repeat the use of any
remedy at frequent intervals.
