MnyofaaOUBettbr. The snows of many winters have Idt their whiteness upon my head, but many events of the war are still t r ^ in mcm- Mj. During tile kmg and bloody strug-gle for independence, I was compelled to witness many horrors. I had seen old men with grey hairs murdered in cold blood, the yonag man of twenty summers stricken down in a moment by the ruth-less foe ; and helpless women and diil-dren tomahawked and scalped witiraat remorse. Those were troublous times, and their very ranembrance makes me shudder. I was young tlien, and both able and willing to meet the sturdy sons of the fwest in fi^r ^ y fiitfaer was one o^the eariy rotters on the Kennebec. I was the <<ldcst of four sons. Before the c immencement of the war, my father had built him a cabin quite coinfortablo enough for his purpose, and commenced clearing—cjnvertii^ the savage wilder-ness to a garden, to tct>m witli com and gram. My bnithers and I of course assis ted him in his labors. The war broke uut the second year afttr our settlment >n the KeunebecL At first we apprehendi-d hut littie dan ger from the savages, as they had hither-to manifiested It friendly disposition. But we rere soon conscious of our danger, fhe Indians commenced their drepi^a-tions upoii tlie white settlers. Tales of bltjodsiRxi ^-era daily borne to-our ears. We went ti» our daily labor with our weapons in uiir hands. At the close of a summer day, we were seated i .i onr com-fortable cabin as usual. A knocking was heard at tlie door. My motlier turn-ed pale, and looked at my father, as tf ntreating him not to open it until he was without. 1 immediately acted upon this hint, and stepping softly to tlie entry, was enabled to reconnoitre the premi-ses through a small crevice. My mother's :ears were not without foundation. An athletic savage stood at the door. His race was painted in the most hideous man-ner. Instead of undoing the fastenings, I proceeded to add to tiieir strength, reported the discovei^ I had made. Biitoae did you sayf asked myfa» tlier. 'Only one,' I replied. 'Now see wh at you can discover on the otiier side of the cabin.' I did so and to my surprise saw throe more of tlie rascals crouched like serpents n the grass. I reported this also. The knocking continued until it became furious. JJy faUier ot course turp^ a 4eai ear to his entreaties for admission. Finding that artifice would not answer, e was joined by his comrads, and togeth-er they made a furious attack upon the Joor. In truth we were but little alarm- •d, for there were only four of tlie savages, ind we felt able to contend with thesi. The fact was, they supposed that the male members ofthe family nad not yet return-fd fhrn work ; eousequentiy they had on-ly to deal witii females. The savages now btt)ught a laige stick of wood, and with tf^ir united stiength nsed it as a battering ram. This plan promised to be my father opened the door to go to his work, I heard the report of a gun, and al-most simultaneously with the first report, a ball struck the chimney near me. I ran to the door. 'Go look in that hollow stump,' said my father. I did so, and to my astmiishment saw an Indian in the agonies uf death. I recognized him instantiy as the one who had made his escape. He had secreted hiipself therein during the night, in or-der that he might shoot my father as he ieft; his cabin. Fortunately his aim was bad. The ball passed within an inch of his intended victim's head. Before he had time to make his escape, he receivdd the contents of m> father's rifle. With our united s t r e n ^ we forth. He sang his death-son^ anfdied. We now relinqnished the idea of leaving our home, thinking that after tiiis event we might live in comj^tive safety. Soon after this, I joined the ranks of my countiymen, encountered much hard-ship, and saw real service. It so hap-pen^ once upon a time, that I was sent out on a scouting party. In our seal we went so far that we were obliged to pass the night from camp. There was no dwelling near, and we were in the vicinity of our savage foes, whose coming successful.

I waited with breathless anxiety until it was within ^ n - shot. Taking deliberate aim I fired into the bush.
