A Tan To TIM CAVE.
"The chid 's among ye talon notes,
And faith he 'II print 'em,"
Now it came to pass in the eighth
month and fifth day of the month, in the
reign of one Daniel, famed for wisdom,
(who was Judge over a certain tribe of
Juniatites, renowned for its sweet indo
lence and for the inhabitants having en
tirely subdued that carnal spirit called
Public Spirit,) that certain young men
of the tribe, numbering from the least
unto the greatest, nine souls as we sup
pose,sought out some new invention to
spen a day in the pleasement of their
minds. And having been numbered ac
cording to their polls (the asses and
chariots being excepted,) there were
found to be the magical number three,
thrice told ; and the names thereof were
after this fashion. There was Snack of
the family of Neffelites, and Kit of the ,
family of the Esnareites, one surnamed
Patrick of the Penquinites, and Rad,
called Doddy, a descendent of Jonathan
—Dumdodum (which is Doctor) of the'
Amreadites, and Joho a servant of the
scribes; Jacobus, a crafty artificer in gold
and silver, a disciple of a certain Ge
buoyite, and Rain the Pedegogue, and
Hawst the enemy of the Jassackites, and
once the distant follower of the Slas
sackites. These being all told and well
equiped, sallied forth soon after Aurora,
rosy fingered daughter of the Morn, had
opened the orient gates and poured in
such a flood of blushing beams and
smiles, that Neptune and all the minor
water deities rent their misty robes and
gossamer veils of fog, dissolved them all
in light, and welcomed and returned the
smiles and beams. The young men of
valor went in the pride of their hearts on
their asses and chariots. They turned
neither to the right hand or the left,
but as their noses directed they follow
ed straight on ; excepting only some of
the horsemen thereof, who in ardor and
perhaps ignorance were carried away
on their beasts into a by and forbidden
way, which, if they had gone far enough
would have brought them, involved by
a snare, into gins, and pits, and traps,
whence no traveller returns. At this
moment the other more discreet and wa
ry part of the company cam , : up and
brought back the feet of the wanderers
into the sure way of pleasantness and ,
peace. And being now about a Sabbath ,
day's journey from their own sweet na
tive walled town they were an hun- '
gered, for it was nigh unto the time of
the noon-day meal. They were also in
an enemy's conntry, and it behooved ,
them to draw near with caution to the
threshing-floor of one Peter Poole. But
these valliant youths were answered
roughly, and turned away with the cold
est s(n)ack immaginable, like as were
David's company of young men by the
churl Nebel when they were an hunger
ed. But alas, for the youth of the tribe
of the Juniatites! there was no favoring
Abagail for them. Even the virgins of
the Philistine scowled upon the famish
ed company. Now, verily, were their
visages lengthened. But they once
more girded up their loins and hastened
forward until soon they lifted up their
eyes and beheld afar off', as it were the
garners and storehouse of one of the
Isettites, who was well afl'ected to the
tribe of Juniatites. Then that one of
the young men, surnamed Patrick, of the
Penquinites, rode forward like Jehu of
old, and addressed the Patriarch of the
family of lsettites, saying, as he lifted
up his voice, " Oh, thou man of rever
ence and age, don't you know my father!"
And being moved to tears he arose and
answered, "And who are you, toy lad I."
Then a good treaty of peace was entered ,
into after much more consultation of the
same sort. By this time the remnant
did arrive, and having gathered them
selves together, partook of something to
eat and something to drink, and where
withall to he fed ; all which they had ob
tained for the sum of thirty pieces of
copper, accurately weighed out accord- .
ing to a just ballance. Being refreshed
in the inner man, and the beasts being
tethered 'and in a manner provided for,
they went for to go on foot. Now the
road was not grevious as to distance,
and was of such nature that it was not
meet to go on their asses and chariots.
Having gone about a furlong they arriv
ed at one of the famous springs of that
country. This is called Arch Spring,
and is in measure about 25 cubits in di
ameter, more or less, and seventy-five
in circumference. The depth thereof is
not known ; but shrewd fellows of the
baser sort would deceive the tribes of i ADAMS & BOAT'S
the land, and say there is a tradition of ' C.IRRIAGE W4GON 314.71r

water flows with great velocity, and af- ; Huntingdon Sept. 23, 1546,
ter proceeding some distance sinks un.
der the mountain, and then rises again
and forms the Arch-Spring which we
have mentioned, where it boils up most
violently, sometimes like the seething
pot, and thence runs down a good slope
to turn the mill of the said Isettite.
Now, it so happened that in days gone
by, a descendant of the Oomorrowites
was not at peace with the family of Isett
ites ; so he cast in his mind how he
might vex his enemy, and give vent to
that exceeding lofty disposition of soul,
called jealousy. 'then he went to work
and built an exceeding great dam over
against the Cave's mouth,
if happily the
water might be held back from the mill;
and perchance on Sabbath let out the
water to overflow the enemy's country,
unawares. But the waters found a new
course through the mountain and finally
got back into its old channel, and thus
was the Gomorrowite discomfited in
mind. After looking around about upon
all these things, the young men extin
guished their thirst, lit up their flam
beaux (which the fathers and mothers
of the tribe had learned how to make
when one surnamed Caudleaster was
Judge,) and going into, as it were, the
very jaws of the valley of the Shadow of
they made the darkness which
could be felt, very visible. And as they
stood round about within the entrance,
Jacobus the disciple of the Gebuoysite,
went up to a lofty position in the side
of the Cave near unto the entrance.
Then raising aloft his light, he bent him
! self three tines three, and upon a large
flat stone, as if it had been the altar of
the Demons of the Den, lie placed a rich
offering the savor of which filled the
Cave's Mouth and delighted the nestrels
of the by-standers.. Then much encour
, aged they travelled on over rocks and
through the river Sticks, (for there was
much wood, and brush, and logs in that
stream,) without any mishap, except
that Hawst, the contemner of the Sias
sackites, was in much trouble and con
fusion of mind for the covering of his'
head. Thus they travelled on about 150
cubits when they came into a wide
space called Solomon's Temple. About
thirty cubits the highth thereof and
twenty the breadth thereof, thereabouts
more or under, and the length thereof
was greater than the highth or breadth
thereof. On one side of this appartment
standeth a natural pulpit, with graceful
festoons and hangings of drapery of sta
lactite, above and around about. All
which no doubt would have shone with
great splendour, but they had a muddy
appearance and could not. Having me
ditated upon these wonders and others
such like, namely, llercule's Pillars,
the Pools of Solomon, Job's Coffin, part
of " the Elephant," &c., they pressed on
through Pensico Avenue, and finally
crawling around the Lover's Leap, came
suddenly against the Bottomless Pit.
Here the waters sink at the great dis
tance of three hundred cubits from the
external world. From reasons of much
weight none of the tribes have ever been
known to venture further than this Pit.
Then the goodly band return to the
Cave's mouth, where daylight eshone in
as resplendent as if the full orbed sun
had burst at once upon the realms of
darkness. The Bear's Blue Hole, with
cliffs around of an enormous highth, was
also visited ; for it lay only at about the
distance of two furlongs from the Cave.
Then the company of goodly souls, as
we suppose, returned upon their beasts
of burden and carriages to a certain vil
lage called Street, also surnamed Water
—(from the extreme neatness and beau
tifulness of the paths and highways, as
well also the wonderons water works of
art and nature !)—and here the cry of,
eggs ! and famine !! went tip through
the land, which even reached unto the
cars of some of the damsels of the young
men's tribe. And after much wit and
humor passing between Dumdodetn and
Duddy, they drew nigh home. And the
damsels came forth to meet the young
men and welcome them once more with
in the borders of the tribe. And some
of the damsels looked through the latices
of their souls as much as to say—" My
pigeon, my fair one, my love, why away
to the valley without us? Why leave
us to mourn your absence in sack cloth
and ashes 1" But at length they were
all comforted, and the old men and moth
ers of the tribe rejoiced and were made
glad when the company of goodly young
men (as we suppose) had returned.

tion on the premises. The land is all well timber
ed, and well timbered lands may be purchased in
the immediate neighborhood at from one to two
dollars per acre.
