G. W. HITHER.
However . extraordinary many circum
stances of this story may appear, similar
events or.acCounts'have been circulated anal'
believed in other countries of Europe. I
have often been assured, both' at Vienna,
and in various, placea,of the German, Em-,
pito, that an occurrence not less romantic,
and more enigmatical in its nature, took'
place in, 1774 "or 1775; for some uncertain
ty prevailed as 'to the preelic tours when the
fact was pretended to have 'happened. It
is well known that the "bourreau," or pub
lic executioner of the city of. Strasburgh,
although that place has formed a part of
the French monarchy, ever_ since the reign
orLonis the Fourteenth, yet was frequent
ly employed during a-great part of.the last
century, to execute the- fucctione,of his of
fice, on the other, side of the Rhine, in
Swabia, in,the territories of.Raden, and in
the Briegaw, all whiehce:duntrics constitute
a portion of Germany. • Smoupersons who
arrived at StrasbArgli, about the" period.' to
which I have alluded, having, repaired, as
it is said, to the house of the,executioner,
during the night, demon:4yd .that he-should
instantly accompany them cut of the.town,
in order to execute.a criminal of condition,
for which service - lie, should, of course; re !
ceive' a liberal remuneration., They ,parr
tieularly enjoined him to bring the heavy

'placed in a carriage with his conductors,
he passed, the bridge over, the river to Kehl,

shifted her to have passed .the . period - of

did-she make any Complaints. "-Whin' all
the: pieparations . for' her execution -were
completed; on a signal given, he unsheathl
ed 'the, instrument of punishment; according
to - the practice ,adopted, in' the •German Em
pire, Where - the axe is rarely or - never used .
for,deeapitation -and, her • head being for
cibly held up by the hair, he severed it;. at
a single stroke, frOm 'the body. :Without
allowing him to remain more ~than a few,
minutes, he was then handsomely reward
ed; conducted back 'to- Kehl, by the some
persons who had brought him to the place,
,set down -at the: end of the bridge,
leading to Strasburgh.
,heard the'question frequently agi
tated, during My , reeidenEe in Germany,
and many different opinions stated, relative
to the lady thus asserted to have been: put
to death. The most generally„ndopted be
lief rested mi . the Princess of -To and
Taxis,, 'Augusta Elizabeth, daughter of
Oharlcs'Alexander,•Prince of Wirtemberg:

rio,d of life, yi.•Chatles Anslem, Prince of

Or, as ',wis• couritnenly , ipretended, from 'the

sition,:the marriage proved eminently un
-fortunate in -its -results. - She-was- accused

'''''''''''' on the 7 hith - hiniiiVeiliinting
the Danube, when she endeavored . to pre
cipitate-him into the.iiver. It is certain,
that about the year 1773 or 1774, a final
separation took place between-them at • the
"prliite!s - rolicitation.- --- The - reigning Duke.
Of Wirtemberg, •her . brother, to whose cus-,
tody she was,consigned,•Caused her to be
closely itipniired in a castle within his_ own
dominions, where she was strictly guarded,
no access being allowed ,to lien. Of the
last' mentioned fast -there is little doubt, but
it may hi considered as - itine.h . more prob-.
lematical whether she - was. the person - put
to death by 'the executioner of Strasburg!).
I have dined in the autninit of_ 1788 with
the Prince-of Tour and Taxis, at the castle ,
or' eat of -Doiiaustauff, near ,the northern '
bank of the Danubri . few miles from the
city bf Ratisbon. He was then forty-fiie
years bf age, and his wife was •understood
to be in:. confinement. I believe that her
deciise was not formally annininced, as
having taken' place till Many years subse-
quentle,l7BB, but this' circumstance by no
mean% militates against the possibility of I
lierAaving suffered - by a more summary - 1
process, if her conduct had eiposetther to
merit it, and if it was• thought. proper to I
inflict upon her capital punishnient. The ,
ptivite annals of the great houses and so-,

were divulged, would furnish*nOmerous in- .

BATTLE OFTTIVE . RANC ID.
The people of that part of,Mexico known
as the "Department of Santa Fe," have - for-
Many years been harraseed and annoyed by
the de'pradations of the American Indians.
An American by the name Kurker, at
the tisne , of.our visit, had just entered into
contract "with the Government to whip ._the
Indians end .bring• ; them to a perinanent
treaty; for the sum of one hundred thobeand
dollars, part of which was paid to him in

the robbery was comm itted; Kurker led hie
men luiekly round a by-pathop the moun
tain side, and as the gray light of morning
spread over the valley, the pursuers found'
themselves upon an eminence corn - mending
the ravine bp which the Indians , were . hur
rying, moimted on the istolen horses:- .The
marauders numbered •sbout a hundred and
twenty,- more than doubling , :ths - force "of
the pursuing party;' but,•, although these
vagabonds hold the.S.paniards in great con
tempt, they are,' the yilest..cowards when
opposed. by the American's. Cunning as
they were they did not discover their dan
ger, until fifty American rifles were levelled
each with deadly aim,nt st - separate victim./
The first cry of alarm from the Inpani
was the signal to fire, `and as the early sun
beam penetrated the ravine,echo started
suddenly from clino cliff, and away
mong the distant crags like the spirit of
fear speeding from death and `danger.
Twenty Indians fell. from 'their horses at
that fire, some with a single frightful yell
expiring on the instant, while others with
clenched teeth and the desperate energy of
departing life, clunglto the reins - and were
dragged aboilt and trod upon by the alarm
ed, horses. 'The Indians ride like
anikwithout Rinsing an instant, 'they turned
and fled; .towarsh)-4evelle,Y; 56t 1 3 6119 1'

without re-loading their rifles,_and chaied
the Indians until .they
ravine and took refuge within 1116 - ifelle - of
.town, called the --Ranch,lies-at the . .
base of a gigantic mountain,"end is watered
by, a swift • stream that rushes from the
ravine we have mentioned.'. it contains,
omm..three hundred" houses,
.and these are.
and enelosing . a - large square,ll the centre
of which' stands. • the church; 'into this
square the Indians rushed , and endeavored
to force their way_ into it, -having ,been
tatight- to-believe that the sacred roof r is pro,
tection against all - danger. But Kurker'S
men felt no dispoSition to .let the' savages
off so easily, mareloading their rifles they
resumed the attack within the walli of the
tnrti:- It.was still itiarly in thp, morning,
the inhabitants sprang from their beds in
the wildest confusion and alarm. First we
had the thronging of Indians in the town :
their murmurs of fear ands terror; then the
Shouts 'of their pursuers; children scream
ed within the dwellings, and there was a
rapid closing• and barring of doors and
windows. • Then came the reports of fire
arms, followed by the most fiendish screams
and yells from. the victims, over which again'
arose the loud hurrahs-of the AmeriCarieas
wild and savage as the dreadful . warwhoop
'of the Indian. The men seemed to grow
delirious with the excitement; and to be
came inspired with the savage nature of.
their enemies. One man after discharging_ ,
his rifle and pistols, rushed madly among
the Indians with his
,knife and actually
succeeded in taking a, scalp before he was
kilked. The fight lasted for about half an
hour, -when the Indiana begged for amity,
and were suffered . to, depart.
I Kurkur's men are mostly robuet, daring
fellows front Kentucky and Missouri; wag
oners, speculators who yielded to - the se

ruined :. men of rough, yet,chivalrous and
romantic natures, Who love "the wild life
they are leading. , Their pay : from Kurker
is a dollar a .day and half . booty, so that
-their interest as well as their love of excite

Opportunity . occurs. 'ln this battle forty
