us that in . 1837, at Beaver; PennsylVaniq,
he became acquainted with a young man o
the name of ,StupeS. On enquiry, he had
the satisfaction to learn that he was a son
of the boy in question. He informed the
General that his father remained with the
Indians till after the treaty of Greenville,
in 1795—that he then returned home, and

took place, and lived there to the day of his

the - ts burgh - American.—Detroit
In' 1780; a small fort, within the present
limits of Pittsburgh, was the head quarters
of General Brodhead, who was charged
with the defence of this quaiter of the fron
tier. The . country north and west of the
Allegheny river was in possession .of the
Indians. Gen: Washington;Whose corn
prehensive'sagacity had provided against
all dangers that menaced, the country,
wrote to General Brodhead' to select a suit
able officer and despdtelt him to Sandusky,
for the purpose of examining.the place and'
ascertaining the force of the British and In
dithts assembled there, with a yiew-totnea
sures 'of preparation and defence, against
the depredations and altacks.to be expected
General BrOilhead had no diflictilty — in
making the selection of au Officer, qualified
for this difficult and dangerous duty. He
sent for Captain Brady, showed. him Wash
ington's letter, and a map or .`draft of the
country, ,he must traverse ; very defective,
as pratly afterwards discovered, but•the
best, no doubt, that could ; be obtained at
that time. . ,
Captain Brady was not insensible to the
danger, norignorant of the difficulty of the
enterprise. But he saw the anxiety of the
Father of his courdry to pro Cure informa
tion that could ,only be obtained by this
perilous mode; .hOd":knew its importance.
His own danger was of inferior considera

was hid from ,Brady's eyes, save the lugs
it cleared off; afforded him a view of about
three thousand Indians engaged in the a-,
mu.sement of the race ground.
They had just returned from Virgjnia or
Kentucky with some very fine horses.—

notice. He won every race until evening,
