A WONDERFUL ESCAPE.
It was rtl th/lootiwou of 1799 that a part of
no left the Pal of the Ohio, in keel-boats,
tinder t_be command of Major Rodgers, for the
• purpose of making on - tutiick Upon ttie Indians
at the old own of Chillicothe . On our way
up the river we met with-no remarkable 'ad
venture,. till we approached the mouth of the
Licking—which we did about - sunset of IL de
lightful- day. We obterved . u feW Indians
standing upon a projecting sand bar,4;at
ppittt, whererthe two streams unite, apparently
watching 1.1(1111c enmpanionS in "'n (Milne, who
were crossing to them from the opposite bank
of the smaller stream. If they saw us, there
was nothing in their manner to indicate the
fact ; and thinking it 'possible to take them by
surprise, Major Rodgers ordered the fouls to
be rant up under some bushes along the shore,
and all the men save tine—some seventy in
number—to advance. cautiously through the
wood, and tompletely surround the spot where
the savages were.
We all set oil' in fine spirits, thinking only
of the surprise we should give the enemy(
QuietlY, stealthily, we pushed onward, spread- •
ing out, us we advanced, till at length we
•reached and thirty encircled the fitted spot ;
_when, just 'as the order was being given to
rush in upon hie toe, we were startled and
timown into the greatest confusion by the up
rising on every side of us of several hundred
Ws bad been drawd into ti ;complete ambus
cade,had been allies by our enemies in the
very trap we Itadset for them. Instantly. they
poured in tt,destructive tire, and then felt upon.
ItS with knife and to : when the panic
uu our-riart became fearful, and the slaughter'
tremendous. Like frightened sheep we hud
dled together; and then, finding ourselves
hemmed in by our foes. who hewed us down
as fast as they reached us, we turned at bay,
and poured . lanea volley front our side. Then
with yells as wild and savage as their own,
we broke through their lines. and rushed for
our boats. But the„lmbans, comprehending
our design reached diem before us, - and made
a capture of all save one. in which the men
left in charge had made their escape. Our
only chance Dow ' was to break their lines
again. awl star Ihrnugh the forestOo the sat-. '
Lion of Ilarrodsburgh. Favored by the gath
ering shades of night,-'souse twenty of our
whole party escaped, though hotly purstied by
out' bloodthirsty foes.
But 1 won not one of that fortunate fete ; for
no I was in the net of clearing some five or six
of the enemy, wile barred my way to a dense
thicket . , and just as 1 had cut down acotiple
of the nearest, a ball pimSed through lily hips,
shattering the bones, At once I fell, but
luckily -- itmeng come thick bmhes, which for
the irpii6it concealed tile; and the others,
proKibly thinking vie dead or escaped, inure
diately darted off -pursuit of my flying
friends,. 1 had my rifle still in my hands; and
wounded and suffering as - 1 -was, I proceeded
to load it as I lay on the ground-- , nly only
itope tiow being that I should succeed in kill
ing one more of the wretches before a termin
us should be put. to my_exi3ion6e..
As minute aft er„fainitt e went by however,
and the. yells of_the - ..savnges grow more and
more distant, and night began fast to envelop
me in tier welcome pall of darkness, a new \
hope sprung. up in my breast,' that I might
possibly 811 secrete myself as to escape the ob
servation of the. enemy altogether.
dragging myself through the bushes to tv , fallen
tree, which lay within a few feet of me, I with
the most' excruciating - paill, crept under the
brunelieS, Which disposed-above; nay: persoul:
in the best manner I could.
Akre for hours I lay, suffering agonies' of
body and mind which no language has power
to describe. 1 dared-nut stir again, scarcely
to breathe. Lheard the Indians return, and I
.eonhl..tclUlY the,soundlhat they were going
over the ground and butchering all the otind:
ed they could find About midnight, as s near
as I could judge, they once more drew off and
lit their camp tires, tire glimmering of xhich
I could -Wilily perceive through The thick foli
age which surrounded tue.

out, and let my position be known, and 'thus
bring upon myself the relief of specify- death;
for 1 knew, from my disabled condition, that.
the Indians would not think of taking me
prisoner, but butcher me at once. And yet
the instincts' of life . were' greater than the
femptatinn I speak of. .And these same in
stiffittS,-by.the way, seem wisely sent for our
preservation—to act when reason tells no that
hope is lost, and we had better 'end our woes
at once. .
Ilow painfully I watched the dawning of the
• day ! how eagerly and tremblingly I listened
lo.everi soiiiid ! - __At z lettellt-teould-hear. - -tho-
I tidbit's astir; and soon later they began to
traverse the scone. of slaughter, hnd gather up
the arms my companions; and' strip ' fiat.
bodies of their gatment. They were hours at .
their work ; and tome those hours wvie ages.
At. times when some of them drew near the
spot-where 1 dfelt-my- heart-in-my_ ver..•
throat,. and it seemed as if I should die of sat
focation. Twiee a small party of them .were
so-close that I oould see their half-naked, hid
'eTittsly painted forms through the leaves; and
Mute a single warrio' 'stalked by me, within
, reach, of my rifle. Up and qlown; and over
the ground they passed and)Vepassed -piany
times, till they were evidently satisfied that
none-of-the dead or the wounded.hatdescaped
- their - notice - . -- Titerthen drew,blrin a body
along the bank of the river, where they re
, mhined for hours—in fact till late iii the day
—whep, being Mined by the rest of their com
panions, who had probably Made a Icing jetty
.ney in pursuit of the fugitives, they repaired
to the Mims. • •
With a feeling of thankfulness which I can
not express,-1 heard them put off from the
shore, and every sound gradually die away to
silence. And yet shortlyut'ter,.theraffanu au
awful 'revulsion of feeling; . for I now felt that
I- -was- alone --alone in the -wilderness—athr
front friends'—so Crippled that I eouid not walk
—could only move tiny tiodf, in fact by agree(
effort—suffering all the time the most'exerti

Providence, such itS had so tar preserved me,
- could still save 11111 from even a more horrible
doom than I had escaped.
- As 1-dins lay on. lily 'back, -in a position
which had scarcely been changed for -more
thanf wenty hotirs. I looked up through the
: leaves, and to my surprise, I might almost say
joy, -- beheld,a ram - coon - In the tel ,if descending
the, trunk of a' large trtle, Sllllle of whose

_At all events I cautiously caused my

its mark, and the unittial,alropped dead within
a few feet. of me; and as I raised myself

And now'tho old parsonage seemed another
Eden, in whese.garden ,dwelt only happiness.
But. has not every Eden its serpent? It came
.in dark, but beautiful and shining guise ; it
came in the shape of Emily's lovely:cousin,
Helena, who, with her sweet, bewitching taco,
glided in upon the happy lovers add brought

...beauty and' hey pride, cared for Emily's lover„
that she loft for 2iwltilit the soore of 'suitors at

never knelt at her shrine- the insatiable heart
hunter! 'And so, for the eclat of a now con
: nest,-slie-came-dailY over from her lather's--
1 magnificent estate to Hadley parsonage, to win
away, with her bewitching smile, the heart of
her cousin's lover..
Emily saw her, riding lightly along .on heel
white steed, with her dark locks braided, and
her 'snowy plume waving to the breeze; her
red lips smiling, and the dark eyes' beaming
with the delight of anticipated triumph. Emily,
sitting with her father and lover in the old
parsonfudy; - saw this brilliant cousin,` and
thought, "How lovely Helena is!" But the
thought Was not mingled with envy., She had
wan ai heart without Helena's thscinations ;
and. her soft cheek colored, - iffitilfer . clear hazel
eyes beamed with her innocent happiness as
she looped at her lover.
].moment more, awl the quiet of that happy
little circle was broken by the appearance of
(his beautiful enchantress cousin. Emily and
her father ath knew Helena's hollow heart,
yet they gave her kindly greeting. She was

for others, could not.conceive that had un

But Helena Wyndhanilittiglio at their char

seated her purpose so to d 0.,; mid she glided
in, in her elegant attire, with Ace soft, yet
brilliant. beauty. her captivating manner, her
keen, delicate; light-flashing wit, and placed
herself . in bewildering, dazzling contrast' to
her fair, simple; unworldly, yet noble cousin -
Emily. It was not the first time Edward bad .

She was-peerless hi her loveliness, her grace,

said to Itjuutelf that the world could contain no

stayed he experienced a pleasure, the nature
of which he could hardly have defined, had he
tried, and the deptlrof which he never sought
to fitthom7 --- Iler - only! - knew - that' he - admired
Au& so the heartless beauty lingered'as long
as it suited her, seeing plainly, and with 'se
cret delight, how Edward Vane was attracted,
until she was fully satiMied with her first at
tempt, and bidding the })arty a graceful adieu,
vanished like some brilliant star, that, while
we are eagerly, delightedly watching it, hides
itself behind the clouds. And Emily never
dreamed whose eyes that star had dazzled.
When next she met her beautiful cousin, it
was alter service at the little . village church:
and as Emily lingered near the door, awaiting
her Miller, Helena, in passing, slightly tapped
the young girl's cheek with her gloved hand.
Hop , cameou ever to attract so elegant,
so ilistingue a lover as Edward Vane?" she
asked. "Ito you know that lam quite pleased
with him ? and that is dangerous for you, you
know ! Take care, my pretty cousin, that I
do not win hint away front you. By the way,
dear, my brother Frederick has also become
acquainted with hint, and, I belieVe, cultivates
his acquaintance most setluously. At, any
rate, he has invited him to spend a day or two
with us this week. You can afford to lose'hint
for that time—can't you, Emily dear ?" -
Finishing this heartless speech with a soft
laugh and a kiss on her cousin's lips, she
passed on to her carriage and Emily looked
after her an instant, with a sudden tremor at
her heart, a startled pallor overspreading her
cheeks, saying, in a low, half-bitter tone, "lle-
Vino, Helena! was that what you came for ?"
Emily only said to Edward when he casts
again, "Do you know Frederick Wyndham,
' Yes,- introduced - to him net
ago—did I not mention it? lam forget
ful of everything but you, my darling?"ho
added, with a beaming smile. Then lie toon-'
tinned:Yes,. and only yesterday ho nun%
me halt 'promise to come and'spend a day or
two with hhn at his father's." Ido n ot know
whether I shall . go, though . ho is ver y urgent.

sult ho might. have been wiser;- bu!, With him,,
as is the case with many others, wisdom was
purchased with experience.
During Abe days he spent with Fredhria-

society of the beautiful Helena; their aiiquain
lance matured, and his admiration grow deeper
with- , every hour delft passed, revealing some
new beauty, some now grace in the. variable,
wayward, yet over-enchanting Helena. ~
