?'About seven years ago,. when the
old Lady well shaft,, in South-Stafford-
Aire, was nigli worked mit, - and there
were galleries and galleries stretching
out, the men said, for miles of old
workings, which , they,. or even filch
fathers bef r'thetn, knew nothing of,.
and could not find their way about, it
was determined by our owners tp sink
a fresh shaft and - commence working
the other side of the hill: and to leave
off-working the old mine. for - ominous
rumors of choke-damp!ind falling roof
warned them that it would not be safe
much longer. Accordingly the .new
works were begun,; they found a thick
seam and very soon they were in full'
operation„and ite old mind deserted.
The viewers told the men to avoid the
side nearest the old Workings, but. the
seam fan that way, and the men work
ed and worked r Aill at last they broke
In one or two small places, and these
the viewers had closed in as Won as
There was at that time in our em

an, and it good workman, but of a re
served and morose temper, and with
whom the men did not care much to
meddle. They often said Black Jack
(for such_ was the nickname .he went
by) was not right in his head, and in
deed his manner was at times eccentric;
but, as I before said, ho was It most
excellerit band in the pit, and that-was
all his employers wanted.
About this time the small-pox com
menced its ravages dreadfully in this
neighborhood; and Timmins' wife, to
whom he. was. devotedly attached, be
came, one of its first victims, being
carried eff in a very short time.
The loss seemed quite to have.
changed the Irian. From a stern re
ligiontst, he turned to -drink, and no
one was more reckless; more debauch
ed and degraded.
His emplOyers remonstrated with.
him, and told him they - would be
obliged to part; that he was only set
ting the men a bad example instead of
keeping them out of danger; but re
monstrance was thrown- away, and
finally. They were obliged to tell him
that at the end of the week he would
be -discharged. • He went to his work,
but after a day or so he was missed,
and when pay-night came he did not
appear at the table; Bb the cashier
"I !mitotic Timmins is drunk again;
he'll come some other time.':
But -the men- shook their heeds,

Now it happened about this time
there was appointed to our mine a new,
manager; for the former one • Wad too

from the coal=fields in the neiOlor
hood of Newcastle, and was a widower o

'from the kindness and geniality of his

but'now in the,pitchy : Egyptian dark

lengthened into hours; and' still they
walked,' and seemed; •tio nearer their

franMisuccumbed-to the-unwonted ex
ertion, -and. she exclaimed„:
"Pa'pa; I can go no farther: leave
me, and seek a light; I will remain
until you return."
„"I can't my child," he 'replied, "r
will reinainNvithyal,:but ,- Baccup can
go and bring assistance."
- At this moment he felt Baccup's
hand gently draw his on one side and
a voice whispered in' his ear . •

dered into the old workings, and if so,
we are lost:" .
"No, no. that can't be," replied the
now terrified father; "for we , couldn't
haye got in when . all
the brsaks were .
closed." •
"I..heiird the men say at the pit's
mouth this morning that there had
been a great break in the night, but I
did not think we should have mime

"Gbd forbid that we should be in
these workings; but, if so, they will
miss us, guess where we are, . and
"How can' each separate party know
but that we have gone up with the
other r It will only be When we are
missed at home that, they will think
what can have become of us, add he
titre then it will bejtoo late." '
Mr. Woodward felt the full force of
all this; but he Would not give away;
so ho said aloud to Baccup
•'lt won't do for - Us-to separate, I.
'Wok, after all; so yen and I will
manage to carry my daughter between
us, and reach the shaft."
The man complied, and, raising-the.
oung girl between them, they again
essayed to find their doubtful way.
But soon the road became rough and
broken, and they could now realize
that they had indeed wandered—froth
the right track, and were lost in the
old _galleries. At length the strong
men could go no further, and, laying
the young girl down, the father seat
ed himself by her, and said. : 7.
-f 'Meta, darling, we,have wandered
from the right track. •It would be
useless going further in this darkness,
as we don't know but wemay be only
wandering farther from the aid and the'
sistance that will be shortly seeking
us-." • • ..
"I'don't . know how it is, papa; but
I feel a firm conviction that I shall
never reach nomo again. I pray that
you may be spared, for it WAS my fully
that brought us all hero."
The father gently chid his child for
feeling so gloomy, and comforted her
as well as he could; for het,felt all the
time black despair settling "at his
IMart, for now, for the first- time, ho
realized the peril thy really stood in.
- Hours passed, and still no signs of
the promised assistance. Their strength
began to fail, for where is there any
thing that robs one of all strength of
purpose and of body as when the
bright goddess Hope_ takes her de
parturel - It—was just at a moment
when Mr. Woodward felt his senses
leaving him with anguish, that - Meta
exclaimed :
"Tape, is that a star I see shining
in tho - distance 1"
.They looked, and beheld
. 1 a faint
glimmei of light'. Hope immediately
sprang up again in their minds.
Thdy raised a feeble shout, but, far
from expediting the assistance they
stood so much in need of, it seemed
to have a contrary , effect, for the light
immediately disappeared.
"It can only be the effect of imagi
nation," sighed Meta.
"Hush!" said Baccup; "keep silefice,
and ace what comes of it."
Shortly the light began to glimmer
again, and presently they could per
ceive a figure approach them- . —it was
that of a man almost a skeleton. His.

During a residence of ten years in
the 'Rocky 'Mountains, I became inti
mately acquainted with Kit Carson. I
have huntedYtrapped and fought In
dians in company with him, and a more
congenial and pleasant companion it
has never. fallen -to my lot to meet.,
In the sunnier of the year 1845 I was

Lucien Maxwell and DickiWoodetion
the Rio, a creek that empties its waters
: into the Red river. We were building
adobe houses, intending temaktia_per-
Manent; settlemea: Judge Beaudien,
of Taos, Maxwell's father-in-law, sent
us Out eo4Le tows, hogs, chickens, and
a number of Spaniards, whom we em
played in planting about one hundred
- acres - ofTrom - on - the - opposite side of
the creek without-any fencing.. I Our
corn looked well, and we were anti C
i-wing a large crop, when one day
village of Utabs, consisting of about
seventy-five lodges, under Big Antler,
their chief, made their appearance,—
They had a great many horses, and
after camping, which they did about
one half mile above t they deliberately
drove their stock into our corn. We
mounted our horses, taking our...rities
with iis, and - drove lliOrri - away then,
riding up to their camp, asked the chief
" if it was his intention to destroy our
-corn 7" He, said " Yes; he came for
the pUrpese of recruiting his horses,
which were poor, and he kneW- of no
better place than time, and he was told
that the whites were going to war with
the Utabs;" al the same time he gave
orders to his young men to drive. the
horses back' into the corn.
Seeing that he was ill earnest, and
not willing to have the crop destroyed
without an effort to save it, Kit sp:ung
from his horse, eaying, " Boys, cover
Me with, your guns,---I will-fix him,"
and, instantly springing upon the chief,
clutched hind By the throat. " Now,"
he said, " order your young men to
bring. back those horses, or'you are a
dead man. If. nor stock enter my
corn shall kill you." at the same-time
holding a seven inch butcher-kmfo to .
his breast . chief, seeing that he
was in a bad predicament, and know
ing that the 'threat would be put in
force, ordered the horses to-be brought
Big Antler was, and had Always
,been, the friend of the whites, and the
most honorable Indian in the Utah na
tion---a brave man, and one who re
spected bravery in , others. Kit, knew
:this; and thought that by acting in
the manner he' did, he would be most
apt to succeed. After releasiiig his
hold-of the Indian, he asked him "how
he learned that the whites were 'going
to war with the Utah ?" Big Antler
said, "Black Cloud had just come from
Taos and brcinglit the news."
Black Cloud, who was standing by',
said, " Yes, it is so," and that *e
should die, and our property be 'destroy
ed. Kit said that he was " talking
crooked, and trying to get the Utabs
to' commence war." Big Antler said
that - as Black Cloud was double-tongu=
ed, and did not love the whites, he
would wait and hear further news, and
not be too hasty in the matter, as he
did not want to go to war without
cause. The warriors now began to
crowd around us with threatening ges
tures, which, being perceived by the
chint, ho ordered them to desist• and
stand hack, saying: ". Warriors, would
you bO cowards to attack these men in
your 07711 camp ? The first that hip
a hand on these men I shall shoot down
like a dog. I .am going to camp on
'this creek the balance of this moon,
and see that not one head of our horses
trouble the 'whites. These mew are
brave, I love them, and who among my
young warriors are going to join me in
protecting them ?" He hardly ceased
speaking,..when abut_ fifty braves
sprang to the side of their , chief. •
Black. Cloud, who was ti than of in
fluence among'tho Utabs, a very giant'
in size, and of a blood-thirsty. nature,
who bad eaused , Big Antler a great deal
of trouble by his quarrelsome disposi
tion, and had also killed the
own brother some few years before,
stepped forward and tried to persuade
the balance 'that they bad better. kill
I and destroy all belonging to us. f. Hay=

kindness in his heart; even with his
'own people he is bad. Did he not kill

dren; but from warriors in battle, fight
ing like brave men, and conquered by
Big Antler, whom all the Utahs call a
bravo man, and not - a slayer'of women
and_children and prisoners."' •
At this Black Cloud sprang forward,
and taking a handful of Girt ; threw it
on the chief, ea,) ing : "Big Antler, yon
are,a cow_ard. You are 'afraid to fight
the whites. Your brother was a cow
ard and I. killed him. .Say, Utahs,
shall we have a coward for our chief ?
I have thrown dirt on'him, and ho turn

'Look at Lim! there is no blood in his
eyes ! He trembles like a squaw. You
want a brave man for your chief, one
that will lead you'to battle and - return
loaded With the scalps of the enemy.
Big Antler, your time has come. Black
Cloud always kills, the man that in-
Sults - hiin, - and 'you muat die."
He was just in the aekof making a
spring upon Big Antler:with -Stood
calmly, waiting for him to finish speak
ing, when Kit Carson spurred his horse
between them, and jumping down, he
stood' face to face with the giant Black
Cloud, who,looking at_him ,a moment
with rage depicted in
,every feature,
said, "Stand aside, squaw of the pale
faces, I shall punish you afteywards."
-"-You will," said Kit; "-we -will - see
to that," at the same time bringing-his
rifle' to his shoulder. anitick'C'foud, I
will let the san shine through you if
you move-another step forward. Boys,
stand close to me ; let your horses go.
I think this little knot of braves, back
ed by- us, can just clean out this crowd ;
and, to tell the truth, I owe this fellow
a settlement for stealing my horses
once." .
Black Cloud's party began to move
up. and the Big Antler's braves stood
near us hnd the chief, whose - face was
calm and 'pleasant to look on before,
'stepped forward. I never saw such a
change. Ile looked a very demon.
His eyes were bloodshot, the sweat
was pot.ring down his face, and raising
both hands above his head, in one of
which he had a knife, he spoke :
"•Warriors, take this man away. - I
shall kill him if you do not. What !
-Black-Cloud, the murderer of his own
people. talk of being-chief of the Utalls!
Away witb_him ! my heart ie growing
cold, and I feel I am becoming thirsty
for- blood. Big Antler .will be your
chief until he is too old to lead his
braves to victoryr then be will step
aside for one you consider worthy of
filling his place. _But no murderei;
ono that has Utah blood on his hands,
can be your chief. Do I speak to you
straight 1"
While be had been talking, they- had .
led Black Cloud aside, and a number
of his party had come over to the chief,
and declared themselves ready to obey
him add him alone. .
Kit was talking tothe chief, and just
in the act of shaking his hand; when
crack ! went a rifle, and a ball whistled
past his bead and entered the breast
of a young brave who stood beside Big
Antler, killing him instantly. Black
Clotid, who fired the allot; had, in his
rage, snatched a gun from an Indian
and fired at Kit or the chief; we never
knew which. Kit raised his. rifle, took
deliberate aim,.aud sent a ball crashing
through his skull. Then, springing to
the chief,- he told them to "come on, if
they - g wanted to avenge Black Cloud ;
that we were ready' and anxious for a
fight!! He called them cowards and
squaws, and all the names he' knew
were insulting to an Indian, but' they
did not come ; their leader was gone,
.and they did not care to risk the fur
ther displeasure of their chief. - Kit
told them if Black Cloud's relations.
wanted- any satisfaction from him at
anylihiti; he was going to stay on that
creek, and they would always find him
there. The chief sent ten young braves
down to our camp to stay with us as
long as. the village remained' on the
.creek.: Every day lie would send us
fresh .meat, and during the time they
camped near, us we were well treated
and respected, Kit was-considered by
tipm a great 'breve, and their chief's
best friend.

BARNUM'S' RAM-P. 1. Barnum
won a foot race at the Franconia
Haise, White iGnotains, some time
since A correspondent of the Hart
ford Post gives the following version
of the race :
"AfterAinner the entire company
'repaired to the verandahs and'brome
neck in front of the house for a little,
frolic as usual. The moving spirits in
the crowd seemed to be Barnum and
Le Grand Lockwood, with had beed
here for some little time Barnum
made a humorous speech, which set
the crowd into roars of laughter, and
then. proposed a race of the heavy
men of the house, which should in
clude himself.
- 'Circulating among the company, he
picked out, six of the largest and lat
est men' he . could find, and placed
them in a row directly in front of the
steps of the piazza,. He then ad
diessed therri, and said the race would
be to the fence, somefifty rods distant.
They were to start upon his counting
three, and Oleg/Ikea were to be a life
ticket to his now museum, and a copy
of his lecture on humbuggery; then
taking his position. at the head of the
line, he slowly and deliberately count
ed one—two—three. At the word
`three,' they all started on a dead ;MI,
with the exception.. Of Barimm, who
quietly sat down on the
_steps. The
fat men didn't discover the sell until
they "had' reached the fence, and,
were greeted with "shouts of laughter
from the crowd on the verandah."
