And kindly spiel: of those she aces in me.
I Wania Trite, a woman God has made,
But do not want a wife in way of trade,

Or give to home a taste of heaven above; _
It neer can give that peace, and tweet contont
Thigh heaven to loving hearti s ahnie he's lent.

A - SHORT STORY, WHICH IS NO
For five days—five weary fearful data,
the fight went on at Fort Ridgely ; not
a day on which the Indians might not
have taken the fort by a - well directed
charge made 'with -the- collective force
which drill and discipline impart to civi
lized troops, but Indians charge much
as a - gang of wolves rush on their prey,
and they were demoralized by the big
guns, of which they had a wholesome
dread. These guns—two hdwitzers of
six and twenty-five pounds respectively
—were managed by Sergeant Jones,
who was a skillful artillerist, and were
without, doubt the salvation of the fort.
The disgust-of the braves, as a bursting
shell or a charge of- canister met them
on a charge was beyand expression, and
their disgust reached the culminating
paint sent in a six lb. package of coarse
nails whistling and screeching into-their
very faces, "Dam rascal, Jones—shoot

the fight. Who can imagine the' anx

longings for reinforcements which did

exhausted garrison saw their ammuni
tion reduced to a few rounds, while the
provisions were all gone and five hun
dred helpless noncombatants, mainly
women and children were in a starving
Fortunately the Indians were not
aware to what straits the fort was re
duced, and on Friday the 22d, they made
their last and fiercest charge, which,
but for the untiring diligence the gar
rison bad used in fortifying every point
must have succeeded ; it failed howev
er, and the Indians turned their atten
tion towards New Ulm, leaving a suffi
cient force at the fort to preclude all
communications and reinforcements.
It will always remain a wonder that
the ill-fated village of New Ulm could
be so thoroughly taken by surprise, af
ter such fearful and repeated warnings.
For five days the villagers had heard
the guns at the fort, and they knew that
the next attack must in the nature of
things be on the village ; yet, beyond
slightly strengthening the brick build
ings, putting such arms as they had in
order and laying in a small store of am
munition, little preparation was made
for defence. ' The attack was made at
daylight on Saturday the 23d, by the
main bodY.of Dacotahs who crept si
lently through the rank wet grass just
at dawn, and dashed into the town with
hideous yells while many of the inhab
itants were yet in bed. A ffiv succeed
ed in reaching the shelter of the brick
houses, but the majority were taken by
surprise and pitilessly butchered or tor
tured to death by inches. The horrors
of that morning have never been writ
ten in detail—never will be. The ago
nizing screams of terror stricken
women, the pitiful pleadings and pray
ers of little children, clasping the knees
of their murderers as the tomahawk
crashed through bone and brain, the
hoarse shouts of a father as, seeing es-•
cape impossible, he made a tiger like
fight for his wife and children, the yells
of the savages as they chased and
slaughtered the fugitives, together with
,the crash of fire arms made a pandemo
nium of New Ulm, such as no peaceful
village in the land had witnessed since
the days of Miles Standish. The toma
hawk was succeeded by fire, and long
before night the, town, with the excep
tion of the brick houses, was an utter
ruin. The atrocities which had been
committed in detail among the scattered
settlers were here concentrated and re
enacted In a manner to shock the most.
stoical. So long as a victim could be
found the *ork of torturing by inches
Went on, and only ceased late in the day
withthe life of the last sufferer;' but the
savages did not escape 'with impunity:
From every window keen eyes and true
rifles sent death among them with little
loss to the besieged, and before night
many a Dacotah brave had expiated his
fiendish deeds with his life. The house
in which John Schultz had taken ref
uge with his family was made an espe
cial point of attack, but it happened to
be the one best fortified and defended,
also; the heavy rifles of the two half
breeds sent forth their sharp whip like
reports from loop holes and barricaded
windows as occasion offered, generally
with fatal effect, for the Freynors pri
ded themselves on theirshooting ; Hen
ry Freynor in narrating the fight said,
"Jim and I didn't shoot quite as often
'as the Dutchmen with their double bar
reled popguns, but when we did onhitch,
an Indian ginirally took a back seat."
The unexpected resistance of those In
the brick buildings maddened the save
ges to frenzy, and theykept up the at
tack with the fiercest determination, bu t
the sun sank low in the west and the
buildings still held outa good show of
resistance : And all through the fight
Jacob Kohler, with every sense preter
naturally acute although too weaki to
rise,—lay listening intently to the fear
ful sounds that reached his ears frOm
Without, tracing the progress of events
with an accuracy that needed no inter:
preter ; whatever anxiety be might feel
for his wife and children he was out
wardly tranquil, and too much of a phi
losopher to worry about that which he
had no power to palliate or prevent.—
Only as the firing flagged late in the af
ternoon he said to his wife In German,
"It is six days—six days of horror—
surely, help mast be at baud;" and he
was right; help was nearer than the
hard pressed defenders dared hope. The
brick ,houses could hardly have held
oft for another day, and the villagers
were on the point of despair, when
Judge Flandrau at the head of a body
of mounted men arrived from St. Pe
ters: halting near the town just long
enough to form they charged the In
dians furiously, and for awhile the bat
tle raged with spirit; but the savages
were routed with loss, and they took to
the long grass, thickets, and timber in
scattering squads, soon hiding froth
their pursuers as only Indians can. As
the shades of night settled down on the
stricken village the survivors emerged
from the brick houses and, assisted by
some of the troops, proceeded to bury
the dead in the streets where they fell:
for no party could yet venture beyond
support from the troops, and moreover,
the red skinned ghouls would have dis
interred the corpses to farther mangle
and dishonor them, had they been bu
rled outside the town : So the burial
party, working by torchlight, went from
house to house, dragging half burned
bodies from the smouldering ruins, fl
ing many corpses hacked and mangled
beyond recognition r and in almost every
case evidences of hellish torture and
cruelty. In the morning all the survi
ving inhabitants left the ruined town
for St. Peters, leaving Judge Flandrau
and his men in possession of the place.
The wounded were placed in wagons
made comfortable as possble with beds,
mattresses and soft prairie grass, what
little could be collected from the general
destruction was got together, and the
sad procession wended its way townies
the :Mississippi, whence many of the
settlers only returned to dispose of their
claims preparatory to leaving the State
forever. Jacob Kohler and his family
found refuge in the house of a friend
near St. Peters, where, backed by youth,
good habits and an excellent constitu
tion his recovery was rapid; in fact, his
wounds, though severe were hardly dan
gerous: he never went back to the home
where such heart-sickening tragedies
had been enacted, but, in October, when
fully restored to health took his fanilly
down the Mississippi to a more genial
clime, and far from the harrowing asso-
Ciatioll.4 connected with his prairie
home. The traveler who may visit the
town of Herrman in Missouri will find
a very creditable German School near
that place ; the Principal of that school
was once a farmer in Minnesota, and he
can tell you more of Jacob Kohler's af
fairs than any man living.
The arrival of Judge Flandrau and
his force was the beginning of the end :
soon after Colonel Sibley appeared on
the scene with three thousand troops,
and the starving people in the fort were
at last relieved, but the Indians were
by no means yet subdued. Captain
Grant was attacked at Birch Cooley, a
large number of his command killed,
and the rest only saved by the oppor:
tune arrival of Col. Sibley with the en
tire force at his command.
Captain Strout at Forest City was at
tacked by an overwhelming force which
he repulsed with severity, but in the
end was forced to fall back on Hutch in- I
son, where the Indians were again re- ;
pulsed, although they succeeded in burn
ing the best part of that town. The
inhabitants about Cedar City took ref- I
uge on an island which lies iu a lake
about a mile in width ; they were
armed, and provisioned for a siege, and ,
the Indians, not liking to risk an attack
by water left them in peace. Along a
line of frontier five hundred miles in
ectent—from Fort Abercrombie to the
Blue Earth, battles, skirmishes, mur
ders, and remarkable escapes were of
hourly occurrence. Awoman with her
three children narrowly escaped and
hid away from thelndians; the young
was an infant, which she was obliged
to carry, while her two little girls strug
gled along through thickets and briars
as best they could; the infant died, and
was buried by the mother in a plum
thicket. The rest lived as they could
on wild plums and berries, and it is a
fact that they managed to sustain life
for seven weeks before they were found
and rescued. A bright little lad not ten
years of age escaped with his brother of
five; alternately carrying and leading
the little one, often hiding in the grass,
and all the while warily keeping a look
, out for Indians he succeeded - in making
his way without assistance to Fort
Ridgely, a distance of eighty miles*l—
bad for a boy in his tenth year: To
narrate all the remarkable escapes and
adventures connected with the masscre
would fill volumes, and this article has
already ertended far beyond the original
design of the writer; suffice it to say
that with the dispersion and defeat of
the Indians at Birch Cooley the tide I
was turned, and from that time they
were steadily pressed back, back, be
yond Big Stone lake,
towards the Mis
souri, across it, and finally, far to the
north of their ancient huntinggrounds,
where many of them found refuge on
British territory: even here they were
not suffered to rest, the British authori
ties ordering them " officially" to leave
the country ; but they were dishearten
ed, impoverished, and badly whipped,
and they sullenly refused to go. If they
were to be exterminated, they said, they
would meet their fate where they were;
and they remained. Probably they un
derstood that the order would not be en

tional comity compelled the Bgth-li au
thorities to issue it. So far as the Minne

have disappeared forever; the govern
ment has given them stern warning. to

LETTER FR= COLORADO
DENVER., COL, Jan. 31, 18,37
So intent were the early settlers on
securing the mountain treasures, that
two years passed by .before any effert
was made to find those of the plains,
and, when the disappointed gold seek
ers turned their atteutien to farming,
their joyous surprise at the large yield
of all kinds of cereals was in striltine
contrast to their despondency in failing
to reap a golden harvest in another
manner from the one they were now
following. An examination of the soil
forming these upland plains shows that
it is a sandy loam containing severity
per cent of sand, consisting of angular
;;rainy of quartz, much yellow mica,
fragments of a dark colored rock, oceiee
ional grains of fcldepar, and a notalil.
quantity of magnetic iron. The vegeta
ble matter amounts to about four per
cent; and the soil thus appears to have
all the eleroents required for great fer
tility. Statements made respecting the
yield of grain and vegetables in general
may seem incredible to farmers in the ,
east, who, under the most favorable
circumstances, seldom receive as a re
ward for their labors that which here I
would be no more than an average ,
Three hundred bushels of potatees,
fifty bushels of wheat, and one hundred
bushels of oats, and corn, are often pro- I
duced per acre, and this will be but an
average yield from large fields of grain
and roots. Vegetables are extensively
cultivated among the mountains. and
they are raised with success almost to
the foot of the Snowy Range.
What would the people of the easter n
states think if they were to see esculent
roots growing on the summit of White
Mountain, and attaining a size seldom
..No land is suitable for eultivatioe
where the supply of water needed to ir
rigate it cannot be procured, and hence
a large amount of land must forever lie
idle unless from the artesian wells now I
being sunk, the needed supply can be
obtained. But while the soil is capable
of producing bread for a population
however large, it has one serious draw
back in the minds of many, as all eni.ats
to raise fruit of any kind have thus +'ar
proved failures.. The reason assigned is
that the extremely dry atmosphere fails
to supply the required moisture for tiie
germ of fruit, and the effects on it
as though a continual blight prevai:ed.
At Salt Lake, which is much to the
north of here, apricots and peaches are
raised in great abundance, and it is
hoped that a result of increase of mois
ture rising from the fast increasing area
of cultivated land on which the water
from melting snow that now flows
ward, or sinks into beds of sand, will be
retained, and this natural difficulty
will be overcome. The winters are
mild and pleasant, though owing to
the elevation, which here is 3,300
are not as warm- as is the same latitude
further east. Snow seldom falls to a
greater depth than four or five ineiles,
and cold weather is gone soon; arid
most of the seeding is done in Februa ry
and March. Cattle, which are rased
in large numbers, require no care oth
er than that of herders who keep them
from straying too far from the 'locality
where they are being wintered.
As there is but little moisture in the
atmosphere there are no frosts, and the
buffalo and -bunch grass cures as well
where it glows as if it were cut and
stacked. The center tufts of bunch
grass 'remain green throughout the
year, or untils* k new growth takes its
place. . .
A brief description of the wild ani
mals most frequently met in the far
west may be of interest. ,The habit, of
the buffalo are so well known that fit
tie need be said of it. The region of
country over *filch it teams is nbw
principally confined to that lying be
tween the Arkansas and Plattemveis,
and this is fast being made less by the
encroaching, white man. Without
stringent laws are made and enforced
for its protection not many years will
elapse before it becomes extinct.
The Antelope is found on all parts of
these vast plains and prairies, is grega
rious and-often assemble in herds of
several hundred at the approach of win
ter. It is about the size of the forest
deer but differing from it in color and
habits. The color is a dark red, verg
ing on grey, except on the breast and
haunches which are a dull white. The
horns of the male are about a foot in
length, raise upright from the head, ex- -
eept at the points, which turn in and
back; the breadth of the horn is four
times its thickness at the base, but as
sumes a circular form near its point,
like_those of the Cashmere goat. Un
like the deer when pursued they flee in
a lope or gallop, and are, without doubt
the swiftest animal on our soil. As
with the mustang on the plains and
wild sheep in - the mountains, they have
a recognized leader in each herd, and by
their unity of action in halting, wheel-
ing, or changing direction on either
flank, they make the movements al
most with the precision of well trained
cavalry. When feeding or resting, one
or more from each flock is stationed in
the most favored position to view the
surrounding country, and at the loud
snort given by the sentinel at the ap
proach of danger, they will run over
the plain almost with the speed of the
wind. A strange trait of their nature
is that which they sometimes exhibit
iu their movements to discover the
meaning of any unusual object they
may discern. Last summer, while en
gaged on the government surveys far
out on the prairie, the. red and black
signal flags of our marker at times
would bring a large Hock from a long
distance to learn the cause of that un
usual siallt in their domains ; and it iY

The grey wolf is seldom found away
from the region where buffaloes roam,
and there it follows In large gangs the
moving herds ever ready to pull down
and kill any buffalo that may, through
age or other causes, be unable to keep
up with the herd. The fur of the wolf
sells for a large price in eastern cities,
ant both kinds are extensively hunted,
and they, like the buffalo and Indian,
must eventually disappear before the
advance of the white man.

Ibex, is a singular animal whose form
