jwltd IPiswJIang. THE PERJULS OF THE BORDER While, reading recently an account of the frightful massacre of several white families by _£he Black-foot Indians, we were reminded of a thrilling event which occurred in the " Wild West," a short time subsequent to the _,Revolution, in which a highly accomplished young lady, the daughter of a distinguished officer of the _American Army, played an important part. The story being of a most thrilling nature, and exhibiting in a striking manner the " Perils of the Border," we have concluded to give an. extract from it; as originally published, as follows : The angle on the right bank of the Great itanawha, formed by its _junction with the Ohio, is called _l_*oint l'leasant, and is a place of historical nqte. Here, on the 10th of December, 1775, during what is known as Lord Dunmorc's War, was fougttt one of the fiercest and most desperate battles that ever took place between the Virginians and their forest foes. After the battle in que...

Response _mrmn. _Jsvawm** The following extracts from papers published in Kansas will serve to show how the JBnglfeb.swbdle is received by the ' Free _Statie _^peojple of _;_pej Territory, composing as we _^ve always believed, the _majority of its inhabitants. From these extracts it will be Been that the triumph of the ad ministration will be short-lived, that the inhabitants of that Territory spurn the bribe, and are determined to resist with boldness the base attempt of designing demagogues to fasten upon the fair soil of Kansas an institution which is repugnant to two-thirds of its bona-fide citizens:— ?'The unfair submission of the Lecompton constitution will not shield it; the people will strike through the ordinance to bury the lance of their just Indignation deep in the heart of the swindle, and thus struck down, it will be trampled into the very earth, whilst its memory, like the ghost of Banquo, will torment the party which countenanced its creation and cherished it...

The object of your being, your present aim and your final destiny, afford too much material for me to discuss in the limits of this epistle ; besides, the task would be too herculean for me to attempt; you can follow it tltrough all it3 ramifications as you see fit.
