This gifted individual is about thirty years pf age, five feet ten inches high, rather slen- der than stput—but elegantly formed—or re- markable litheness of limbs,, yet capable of iron endurance, something of the Apollo and Hercules blended, or raihqr the easy gra^e. the stealthy step, and active spring of the'ti- ger. His grandfather was,® Scotchman, his grandmother and. mother were full blood In- dians. His father was, of course, a half breed, and Oceola is therefore a quarter bipod, or one fourth white, which his com- plexion and eyes indicate, being much light- er than those of the Indians generally..— When conversing on topics agreeable to him, his countenance manifests more the disposi- tion pf the white than of the red man. There is a great vivacity in the play of his features, and when excited, his face.is lit up as.by a tlwn8J>i*£-$raju^wB»W»»S»«». Wr*\'' 0 \ «««K=«* '««% His.8ogeiftGrecian.at its base, and would be periecUyTBidean, but that it Be- comes, slightly arched. There are indomi- table firmness and withering scorn in the ex- pression of his mouth—though the lips are tremulous from the intense emotions which seem ever boiling up within him. About his brow, care ?nd thought and toil have traced their channels, anticipating, on a youthful face, the havoc and furfow-wprk of tings. To those who have known Oqeola long, his fame does not appear like.ajsurj-burst, but as the ripening .fruit of earl/promised blossoms. For years past, he has enjoyed the reputation of being the best ball player and hunter, and the most expert at runninsi, wrestling, and all other active exercises. At such limes, or when naked, his figure, whence all superfluous flesh is worn down, exhibits the most beautiful development of muscle and power. He is said to be inexhaustible fronrthe ball play, an exercise so violent that the struggle for mastery has Ifeen knbwn to cause the death of one of the combatants.— When this occurs in a fair contest, the sur- vivor is not punished for murder, as in all other cases of taking life. On one occasion, Oceola acted as guide to a party pf horsemen, and finding that, at starting, they, proceeded slowly, he inquired the cause. On being leki that it was ©» bis'account, with fflie of those smiles he alone can give;he bade them proceed more rapidly. They'put spurs to their steeds, and he, afoot, uept up with them during the entire route, nor did he exhibit the slightest symptoms of fatigue at the close of.the day, but arrived at the point proposed as early as the mounted body. To Colonel Gadsden, sole commissioner at the treaty of Paynels Landing, Oceola rendered goad ser- vice, at the head of, thirty or forty, warriors, posting himself nearer to the Cofonel's po- sition than the other Indians, and saying, he, was more like the white man than'they. He did not sign the treaty then and there-made, nor did he refuse so to do. The fact ^s, he\ never was asked to subscribe his name there- to, being at that time but a Tustenugge, and of little note. This treaty must ; not be con- founded with the subscquenVagreemeut tjiat Oceola finally signed, a<W into which he is said to have plunged his knife, when called on for his signature. The negocjatipna at Pane's Lauding were in the time of-Tucka- hee Emathla, or the Ground Mole Warrior, chief of the Micasuky tribe. At that daie it was not known of Powell, as CottonJ¥!ather sa'ysof Roger Williams, in his Mafnblia, that \the whole country was soon to be set on fire by the rapid motion of a wind mill in the head of one man.\ S^<-- • • Oceola acted as agent lor Sliennope, who is an imbecile in reducitig to subjection the Micasukies, who are not only fhe nibst nu- merous and powerful, but the most despe- rate and insubordinate tribe. By -bis bold- ness and energy, he always succeeded in bringing them in to receive punishment for the offences committed-4alterly h'f. wanid beg them off, and finally went oveUb them as one of their Chiefs. The UnifediStates' officers, as well as the Indians, all looked to Oceola to secure pffenders—knowing his re- solution and powers'. And for this purpose, as well as to retain the Seniinoles ivitbin their limits, be has taken more pains, and endured piore fatigue, than any fotir of the Indians put together. He is pffcelejated and upright character, and was of kindly dispo- : sirion till put in irons, which converted, to gall, the milk of human kindness i^.-his 6o- som-r-roused hisfiery indignation, unqtiench- able but by blood, and excited him to deep seated; ample revenge. ,-.

It seems that i01l hasa little daughter, to whom Lieut. •Was kind, and had presented with frocks, in) ;Which the -young girl, who grew very fond of^him, always insisted on being, dressed, wbfeneversheperceived Lieut. G-(for whom she often looked out) coming to visit her.— Oceola's., motive in sparing Lieut. G. was gratitude for attention to his child, which he alsp endeavored to repay by teaching the lieutenant the English language, for he speaks a little English, and is very intelli- gent. Powell has two wives, as is common with the Indians, but they are rarely Trigaraists. His two better halves live in perfect harmony, having one table in common, but occupying separate \ lodges.\ They are both young and comely; one of them is particularly pret- ty. They yield passive obedience to his vi- gorous intellect, and expressions which par- take the character of his mind. His words are ever few, but apposite. At the conclu- sion of the talk, I have sketched his lofty mein and manly bearing. His address is courteous and affable, and his smile is witch- ery. Like most Indians, he is fond of ajoke; the opinion that savages are always grave-, being erroneous. His shake vf the hand, like every thing from him, leaves a lasting impression, and if there be not a vice in his fingers, he lias-a vtctous way of using them. Oceola is generally ambitious, and like oth- er Indians, revengeful, the hxlalionis heal- ing their bloody code.?* So that his conduct, like that of more civilized men, is made up of mixed motives, having just enough of the salt, of patriotism to preserve the character from the taint of corrupting, selfishness. oncdof fl _ iht ,th#ft6M,i»n»rMp| : -'»id9- mi§i • s fttart, he could t»K**Js^*-AtniiSfe.< '\ Mrrest their retuwMhm^fipsS,. -$$, .., .

Samuel Brady, the hero of the following adventure,, was over sixfeet in height, with light blue eyes, fair skrnt and dark bair; he was remarkably straight, an athletic, bo|d apd vigorous backwoods-man, inured to^iflj the toils and hardships of a frontier Jifet atiff had become very obnoxious to the Indians, from his numerous successful attacks on their war parties, and from shooting them in. his hunting excursions, whenever they crossed his path or came within reach of h;s rifle ; for he was personally engaged in more hazardous contests with the savages, than any other man west of the mountains, ex- cepting Daniel Boone. He was in fact an \ Indian hater,\ as many of the early bor- derers were. This class of men appear to have been more numerous in this region, ru»r.^iT,n 7 - V ti 1 _ JJ J lK } (MV01 , ,|, f t f ro(1 ,f &F9 . and this doubtless aroin, «~»^ o.~- .i^Jui« ot nraiictacKS oereat, atidTfie numerous mur- ders and attacks oii defenceless families that for many years followed thai disaster. Brady was also a very successful trapper and hun- ter, and took more beavers than any of the Indians themselves. I.) one of his adven- titious trapping excursions, to the waters of the Beaver river, or Mahoning, which in early days so abounded with (lie animals of this species, that it took its name from this fact, it so happened that I he Indians surpri- sed him in his camp and took him prisoner. To have shot or tomahawked him on the spot, would have been but a small gr«itifica- tion to thai -of satiating their revenge\ by burning him at n slow fire, in \presence of all the Indians of their village. He was there- fore taken alive tp their encampment, on the west bank of the Beaver river, about a mile and a half from its mouth. After the usual exultations and rejoicings at the capture of a noted enemy, and causing him to run the gauntlet, a fire was prepared, near which Brady was placed, after being stripped naked, and with his arms\ unbound. Previously to tying'dim to the stake, a large circle was formed around him, consisting of Indian l'rfen, women and children, dancing and yelling,, .and uttering nil manner of threats and abuse that the'rf small knowledge of the English language could afford; The prisoner looked on these preparations for death nod his sav- age,foes, with'a firm countenance and a steady eye, meeting all their threats with a truly savage fortitude. In the midist.of their dancing and rejoicing, a squaw of one pf (their, chiefs came near him with a*child in her arms. Quick as thought, and with intu- itive ptescience, he snatched it from- her and threw 4 jt Shtd the'midst of the flames. Hor- rpr : sfruek at the suddon outrage, the Indians simultaneously ru'shou to rescne the infant fropi the fire. In the midst of this cpnfu- sioh,.»Brady .darted from the circle, overturn- ing all'that came in his way, and rushed into the.adjacetft;tbickets, with the Ibdians yell^ i'nfcnt his heels. He ascended the steep side oji the pfesenfcthill amidst a shower of bullets, and darting down the opposite declivity, se- creted himself in; the deep ravines and laurel tbiekels that abound for several miles to the ;west of it. His 'iinijwledge of the country and wonderful, activ'ity enabled him to elude his enemies, and reach the settlements on tbfesouth of the Ohio river* which he crossed by ^swimming.* Thfi bill hear whose base this adventure is said tp have happened, still goes by his name; 'and the incident is often seferred to by the traveller, as the coach ft slowly dragged up jls Ride. * BRADY'S LEAK.—Capt. Brady seems »p have been as much thfc Daniel Boone of the j north-east part of the valley of the Ohio, as the^othpr was pjf .the sp^h-west, and the country is equally full of traditionary legends of his hardy adventures and hair-breadth escapes, although he has lacked a FLINT to chronicle his fame, and to transmit it tn pos- terity in the glowing aifd'beautiful language of that distinguished' annalist of the West. Frotn undOTibW^ulfeojrity, it seems the U\r lowing incident actually transpired in this vi- cinity. Brady's residence Vas oh Chartier's Cre«kt.on thj>*aiVth side of the Ohio, as be-, fore noted in this,diary; and being a man of herculean strength.activity and courage, ties was generally selected $$.the leader of the hardy borderers in al| their incursions, into the Indian territory njolth of the rivers : On this occasion, whicfrwls abr#t<fii|y«^y$^ a large party of warriore frotr»\;tfm- falfe of Cuyahoga and'the adjacent country, hsrV made an inroad on the sbiith. side of the Ohio, in the lpwer part of what is how Wa- shington county, but which was then known trough the fl,i Vma£,h»%r* view ipfr rnakins w* townsfaip^fjffertnl^lto^ifrpottage county. Although firady|C('ade his, reproaches with the utmost caution, the Indians, expecling a pursuit, sycr.e nn the look-out. and ready to receive.him, with numbers fourfold to those of Biady's party, whpisje nnly sa(et^wa|^a hasty retreat, whlchi from the ardor of the. pursuit, soon became a perfect flight. Bra- dy directed his. men to separate pnd each one take care of himself; but the Indians knowing Uradyj and having a.most' invete- rate hatred and dread of him, from the nu- merous chastisements he had inflicted upon, them, left ull the others, and with united strength pursued him alone. The Cuyaho- ga here makes a wide bend to the south, in- cluding a large tractof several miles of sur- 'face, in the form of a peninsula; within this tract the pursuit was holly contested. The Indians, by extending their line to the right and left, forced him on to the batik of the stream. Having, in peaceable times, often hunted over this ground with the- Indians; and knowing every turn of the Cuyahoga as familiarly as the villager knows the streets of his own hamlet, Brady directed Jus'course: to the river: at a spot where the whole- stream is compressed, by the rbeky cliffs, into, a narrow channel of only twenty-two feet across the top of the chasm, although it is considerably wider beneath, near the water, and in height more than twice the number of feet above the current. Throtigb 'this pass the water rushes like a race-horse, chafing and rearing'ar the confinement of its curreut-by the rocky channel, while, a short\ distance above, the stream is \at least fifty yards wide. As he approached tho cbasm, Brtidy, knowing that life or dvath was in the effort, concentrated his mighty powers, and leaped the stream at a single bound. It so happened that, in the opposite cliff, lite leap was favored by a> low place, into which he dropped, and grasping the bushes, he thus helped himself to ascend to the top of the cliff. The Indians for a few moments, were lost in wonder and admiration, and before they bad recovered their recollection, he was half-way up-ihe side of the opposite hill, but still within roach of their rifles. They could easily have shot him at any moment before, but being intent on taking him alive, for torturefand to glut their long delayed revenge, they fofebore the use of the rifle.; but now, seeing him likely to escape, they all fired upon him; one bullet wounded him se- verely iq the hip, but not so badly as to pre- vent his progress. The ludians having to make a ccnsiderable Circuit, before .they^ conk! crbss'tiT§, stream, B'rady advanced a stiff from the wound, and as the Indians apurjM^tbeliBilfc % ^^rl#o|fVVi«(nC!

This, although leaving only a small breathing place to sup- port life, still completely sheltered him from their sight. The Indians, tracing him by the blood to the water, made diligent search all round the pond, but finding no signs of his exit, finally came to the conclusion that he had sunk arid was drowued. As they were at one time standing on the ve.ry tree beneath wldeh he was concealed, Brady understand- ing their language, was very glad to hear the result of their deliberations, and after they had j one, wcarv, lame and hungry, he made good his retreat to his own home. His fol- lowers also all returned in safety.
