A TALE OF FRONTIER LIFE.
App's, or Atm&lom's Valley, &i willed after
Absalom Looney, the first white man who gazed
upon its sylvan bounty, lies upon the waters of
the Blue Stone River, in Virginia, at the south•
western pert of that State Under the shadow
of mieity hills, with a climate as warm and
genial as the Bermudas, a ant rich and yielding,
and an expanse of scenery, almost unrivalled in
its immediate neighborh.xtd, it was no wonder
that this valley presented the strongest induce
meats to a few of the struggling and hard.work.
ing settlers who had !andel on less inviting soil.
Among these were two families, named Moore
and lying, who removed to this beautiful valley
in 1775, each having large families of children
to support, and finding it difficult and almost lin
peti,thle to raise for them the ordinary means of
subsistenOe. Here, however, the difficulties
seemed to vanish at once; and the rude log cab.
ins, inhabited by the two friendly families, were
the abodes of more real happiness than is tat u
found in the palaces of the great
Here, in a abort space, they became the own•
ers of many horses and cattle; and the abundant
fields of the delicate Virginia white corn, the ea•
tensive tobaece patches, and the abundant pas.
ture laude , attested to their growing prosperity
For miles along the half made and irregular
roads, extended thick shrubberies of the fragrant
peavtue and sweet myrrh, and vr,ld loses and
the white flowers of the older perfumed the air
with their sweet odors.
James Moore was a true, good, Christian man.
Every day on his tended knees, be blessed God
for letting his lines fall in this goodly place; and
the aspirations of his bean were, that his chil
dren might live out their lives here, in undis
turbed serenity, far from the !snares and tempta
tions of the busy world.
.1 . 4111 Ivins counted eight children, and .James
Moore ten, when they had lived nine years in
App's Valley, and happier sod better children
the sun never shone on Sometimes, it is true,
they would shudder sod cower at the thought of
the hands of savages which w ere se b=teln
Stie borders or the State; and the gentle mothers
would turn away their own pale faces, when
they were spoken of, lest the little ones should
gather new terrors from their looks
still they had been bore so long, and no iu•
trusion having ever been wade on their prenit
sex, that they naturally gathered eiurage with
each passing year, and when Mary Marc was
sixteen years old—a fair, gentle little maiden as
ever graced such a sylvan abode—and baby Mar
garet was just beginning to walk ib.tie, the law.
ily had attained almost teimpleto security.
The boys of the Moore family were .trong,
hardy, brave and courageous; giving good and
efficient help to their (allot, and emulating the.
y o u ng ions of John 'vine in every enterprise of
athletic labor or sport. Circumscribed as ihey
must necessarily be iu the mean, of education,
and be enjoyment of society, they were never
thelees, neither ignorant Our lonely in their se•
elusion. Tu Mary Moore, e-pecially, ktriwledge
came appareutly by lutuition, and ale imparted
it us all around her.
Her days were devoted+ to the work of the
household in which she miasma her mother; but
the law evenings saw her teaching her brothers
and those of Martha tains, who was her friend
and almost constant companion. Of these broth.
era of Mary, James, the neat to her in age was
the meet dearly loved. Fur him and baby Mar•
garet, Mary wad have given up her life, if re
quired, without a murmur; and although kind
and good to all, the choicest of ber gifts—the
finest fruits, the most delicate stockings which
she spun and knit, and the whitest of her cloth,
when it came from the bleaching ground—were
alwsys . for these two
She bad given the last polish one morning in
ironing a blue and white striped linen suit which
she had woven expressly for James, bad careful
ly turned over the broad white shirt collar, End
daintily wound his shining curls over her finger,
preparatory to his setting off for the mill, with a
peat sack of corn, on the back of Brown Peggy,
who was thus named out of compliment to the
baby She looked at the handsome lad with an
expression of love and pride; and a feeling as if
be particularly belonged to her, came up in her
heart more distinctly than ever, on that morning
She lingered at the door, until she saw him ride
down the bill, turning round to bid good by in
his own free and affectionate way. Nor did she
quit gating after him natal a clamp of trees quite
hid him from her sight; and even then she wao
only recalled by a laugh from Martha Ivins,whs
bad been wakihiog her.
"Nay, now, Mary dear," said the good.hamir
ed girl, "obe would think that Jemmy win de
parting to a far off oountry, instead of simply
riding over to the vial Why, you are as thought
ful and silent. as my mother is to, dal Pray,
what has oome over you all?" r i
Mary looked up to Mrs. Ivies, who stood at:
the window of the log house opposite, and saw
that.she had a sad look, such as she never saw
her wear before Almost mechanically, she fol
lowed Martha in, saying, as she did so:
"I cannot tell Martha, but I felt a terrible
sinking of the heart this morning—l think &their
calls it a presentiment—that I cannot amount
for. I could not tele to see James go away this
morning; for, although Peggy is so eure•footed,
still I could not help feeling that an accident
might happen, even to her. Bat don't tell moth
er that I feel so, Mrs. tying," she continued,
"for I dare say it is all a mere notion."
Mrs Ivies could not reply. She too bad bad
the same presentiment of coming evil, all 'kat
'morning: and she longed to see the families to
gether, the day's work over, and all in safety.—
Mary returned to her ironing table, but there
was no bright polish on the clothes, no strength
in the band that held the iron; and two or three
times the sat down and turned so pale that her
mother bade her leave the board, and lie down
on the old high backed settee. Mr. Moore came
into dinner, and "the boys came with him. They
sat down at the table, but one seat was empty.
"Where is James?" be asked. "Surely he
must have some from the mill. Go, and look
for him, William."

((Very strange," said Ms. Moore; but apps
reati be forgot all about it, for he was soon ea•
criin dimming a new-feehioatia plough with
, who had been reading of the novel inven
tion, and wished his father tamed to Jamestown
to get it.
Dinner was finished, sod the afternoon wore
slowly on. The father and sons had returned to
the field, and Mrs. Moore,
busy, at first, in mix
ing oornoskes for supper , did not aeon to think
more of the absent one than onee in a while to
look out of the window and wonder that he was
detained so long. Mary, usually to) waive. and
industrious, lay all the afternoon upon the set
tee, with her hand over her eyes, as if suffering
from hea4aehe, but in reality weeping. TIN sun
was almost down when she sprang from her bard
couch, and ran out to the field.
"Father," she said, trembling all over with
excitement and terror, "father, do for the love
of !leaven, go and see what bas become of poor
James. Perhaps ho is drowned in the river;
perhaps, 0, father, toe Indians-." She drop.
ptd lifeless to the ground as she spoke.
Mr Moore, now thoroughly alarmedi told the
youngest buy to call his mother, then ,shouting
to lions and his boys to join him, they 41l moun
ted on horseback and made their way to the mill.
The miller said be bad delivered the meal to the

that my tittle troy came in at the seine moment
that James left, and began telling me that be

knew he never caw one in his life."
Mr. Moore shook his head mournfully. Flow
could he go borne and bear this news to his wife
and Matey. flow could he return at all, with
out his son? lie motioned to John Ivins to gn
d.iwn the valley and search for him, and Jobe
understood him, though he heard no sound from
his lips The ,earth was iu vain, but an empty
canoe lay ou the bask of the river, and a horse's
footsteps were; plainly seen embedded in the soft
earth, quittlinto the forest; and the night shad_
ows were Ming too deep far any farther exam•
ination, until they could go home, procure lights
and reinforce their party Every man and boy
in App's Valley turned out, with torches made
q( pine knots, and scoured the wood wherever
there was a bridle path; but without effect, sod
thenceforth Tear and imeourity were their cow
panions day end night
- Moore did not return, and the absence
of the horse precluded the ides of an widest,
since the animal would have found his way home.
There we only one conjecture, and that pointed
to the !admits. [lns strangely hid that sad
event changed the whole aspect of the valley!—
Mrs Moore and Mary were worn to shadows
with anxiety; and the little children of both
families, who had roved at will through the
fields, were now shut up in the close- houses, and
soon began to pine fur the fresh, sweet air No
ono bad any heart to work. The fie'ds exhibited

Suddenly a wild shoutAras beard, And Mary
pepping through a crevice , in the *all, for she
dared out go to the window, saw a party of In
dians surrounding the group upon the greet:l.-

the floor, under which was a hollow cavity that
served them for a eellar; and with Martha and
the little out, she suAght, its shelter, and repla
ced the board as well as she was able. She Beard
moans and shrieks, and knew that the savages
were doing their terrible work; awl after a long
time in which she had succeeded in kinetkiag
Mararet to sleep, she heard the Indians enter.
T ey passed round through all the rooms, and
at last they seemed to be all marching out again,
with a slow, heavy tread that shook the floot,ail•
though, with the exception of the board &beim
her, tt was:composed of timbers. Their weighty
wad awoke the baby, and finding herself in the
dark, she btgan to cry, even though Mary put
her band on her little lip, to arrest her cries,
and tried to hush her in her arms It was too
late.. Ihellndians had heard that first wild cry,
and had turned back; and when the board was
lifte , a group cif frightful looking objects stood
&bow . their hiding place, and dragged them
rude y from it, and out upon the green. Mrs.
Moore sod:four of the children were tied to the
tree; three others, with their Esther, lay dead up
on the grabs. Of the lying family, none had
escap e d death, except Martha. '
It was well perhaps for the poor girls, that
they passed into temporary insetoolelity, other. '
wise insanity must have suoceeded this terrible
sight. When they revived, ebb was in the
arms of a stout savage, and others were driving
Mrs Moore and the'obildren aleing before them,
while baby Margaret was slang iiudely across the
shoulder of one of the tallest the tribe, the
child lying, or rather hanging 1 . e one dead.—
The( horrors of that day were e ffieient to quell
thelstouteit heart, yet the poor ildron endured
it With a fortitude that man fight equal, bat
never 6urriais John, the giros , apparently,
of the four who were tied with e mother, gave

They hod now eotere.l the forbst, and the cool
shade reviled themi, Margaret held out her lit•
tie arms to Mary, to be taken, Pita the Indian
who carried the obi, interpretg her look of
fear avid disgust at imself, held her out to Mary,
with the expression of a demon ppm) his face.—
She took bee in h arms, and fiat that moment
she saw the infant head droop, and a terrible
shadow or bet littlo brow. „lift cunning blow

were to feed the &nee. Bat, oae by one, the
captives were alldisposed of, not:piing the two
young girls. They held out watil they reached
the camp of the savages, part of the way being
by water. Their captors had come up Sandy
River, and their canoes were ready on the beaks.
The few thin garments worn. by the maidens,
were tattered by their long walk through the
woods, and their feet were torn by the sharp
rocks. Never surely were there two so sorely to
be pitied. They who bad died were's& and et
rest; but what horrors might await these helpless
maidens t When they arrived, they wore put
wader the care of the squaws, who immediately
separated them, thus cutting off their last gleam
of comfort or consolation.
Both were set to the lowest and hardest tasks,
and as they were darkened by the sun, in their
long journey, and were now obliged to wear the
Indian costume, because their own clothes had
literally dropped to pieties, they were hardly dis.,
tingaishable from the young females of the tribe.
Certainly no one would have recognized sweet
Mary Moore in the bronzed maiden who waited
upon her lords like a slave
Here she spent several years, each of which
was harder than the last. A morbid indifference
to life, a mechanical performance of her tasks, a
recklessness of offending her masters, probably
hoping that they would be tempted to end her
miseries by death, denoted her state at this time
She had lost the feeling of terror in the supreme
aeosation of utter weariness, that weighed heav
ily upon her soul as well a• frtine.
A morning came this reminded Mary of the
one on which she was captured. A fieroe heat
burned the grass around the tents, and the breeze
came scorchingly to the parched skin, like the
breath of fiery furnaces The Indians succumbed
before it, and stretched themselves about lazily,
at a distant*, under what alight shade they might
find. Even the squaws rested from their almost
interminable pounding of corn and cooking of

motions through the air, darting its 'snowy
tongue with a sibilant sound through the half

drooped, the mouth closed, and the subdued ser

who, during the whole performance, stood, erect
and silent, in the position be had first taken
A spectacle so novel and exciting, attracted at
once the attention of the visitors at the Springs.
The ladies crowded on the front gallery of the
hotel, and the men and boys gathered in a dense
Circle around the mysterious stranger, In witness
his perilous feat.
To convince the spectators that the exhibition
was not a decopi ion, the performer drew forth
another large rattlesnake from his hos, played a
short, blunt stick upright in its m ulth so as to
hold the faucet apart, and then, inserting anoth
er stick beneath the fangs, he pressed them out
wardly until their fall length was exposed to

round the circle of men and boys, and through
the cr iwd of ladies, that all might see it was a
veritable snake, armed - mith fang and poison,
with which his experiments were performed.—
This done, he returned to his first position, placed
the su)ke upon the ground, and commenced
kicking at it with great violence, taking care,
however, not to strike iv with his foot Quickly
irritated by the simulated assault, the snake
threw itself into a coil, shook its rattles, and
seemed eager to strike its assailant, who, leaning
forward, seized and held it up, writhing and hiss ,

time into its eyes, when, as in the first eiperi ,

they saw and heard.
It was with the snake tamer, now apparently
the last extremity, se with other mortals in
