Please call and examine them. Binghamton June 24, 1845, T h e E r i e s were the most powerful and w a r ­ like ofall the I n d ian tribes. T h e y resided>.at the foot of t h e great Like, (Erie.) w h e r e now stands the city of B u f f a l o ,i h e . I n d ian nam e for which was “ T u - s h u - w n y .” W h e n the E r i e s heard of the confederation which was formed between the M o h a w k s , who resided in t h e valley o f that name,, the Oneidas, the Onondagas, the C a y u g a s and the Senecas, who resided for the most part upon the shores and the outlets o f t h e lakes bearing their nam e s respectively, (called by the F r e n c h the I roquois natron.) they imagined it must be for some mis­ chievous purpose. A l t h o u g h confident of their superiority over any one of the tribes inhabiting the countries within the bounds of their know l ­ edge,they dreaded t h e pow e r of s u c h combined forces. In order to satisfy themselves in r e g a r d to ihe c h a r a c ter, disposition^an.d power, uf those they considered iheii natural e n emies, the E r i e s resorted to the f o llowinqlfreans: T h e y sent a-friendly message lo the Senedas, who were their neardstneighbors, inviting them to select one hundrfd o f ' h e i r most active, ath­ letic y o u n g m e n , to play a g a m e of ball, a g a i n s t the s a m e num b e r to be selected by tbe E r i e s , for ,a w a g e r which\should be considered worthy the occasion, a nd the character of the great nation in whose behalf the offer was made. - T h e message was received and entertained in the most r e s p e c t f u l m a r in e r . A c o u n c i l of t h e “ F i v e Nations” was called, and the proposition 'folly d iscussed, and a m e s s e n g e r in d o e ’tirriedes­ patched with the decision ofthe council, respect­ fully declining the challenge. T h i s em b o lden­ ed the E ies, and the next year the offer was; re umved. and, a f e r being a g a in considered, again ‘orm a l ly declined. T h i s was far from satisfy ing the proud lords of the “ G r e a t L a k e , ” and he challenge was renewed the third lime.—- T h e blood of the young Iroquois could no lon­ ger be restrained. T h e y importuned fhe old men to allow them to accept the challenge, and the wise councils which had hitherto prevailed, at last gave w a y arid the challenge was accept­ ed. N o t h i n g could exceed the enthusiasm with which each tribe sent forth its c h o s e n champiionsi for i h e contest. T h e only difficult) seemed to m a k e aselection. w h e r e all w e r e so w o r ­ thy. After m u c h delay, one hundred of the flow e r of fill the tribes were finally designated, and the day for their departure Was fixed. An experienced chief was chosen a s the leader o f the party, whose orders the you n g men were strict­ ly enjoined to obey. A grand council was cal­ led, and in t h e presence of the assem b led m u lt i ­ tudes, the party was c h a rged, in t h e most solemn m a n n e r, to o b s e rve a pacific course of conduct lewards their competitors, and the nation whose guests they were to become and to allow no pro by any act of a g g ression, o n their -part,but in-all respects ta acquit themselves w o r thy the representatives of a g r c a t a n d powerful people, a n x ious to culti­ vate peace a n d friendship with their n e i g h ­ bors. ’ '' Under these solemn injunctions, the party took up its line o f m a r c h for- “ T u shu-w a y .”— W h e n the chosen band had arrived in the vicin­ ity of the point of .their destination, a m e s s e n g e r was sent f o rw a r d to notify t h e E r i e s of their a r ­ rival, and the next day was set ap a r t for their entree. T h e elegant and athletic forms, the tasteful ■yet not c u m b r o u s dress, the dignified, n o b le bea T h e Iroquois having p.ow accom p lished ih e object pf t.heir visit,^proposed to l a k e t h e i r leave; but the ch i e f o f t h e Eries, addressing himself to their l e a d e r , s a i d j h e i r young men, though fair­ ly. .beatenin jthe-garpe of ball, would no.t b e satis- fied unless t h e y cou.ld have a foot race, a n d pro­ posed to m a tch ten .oftheir n u m b e r against an equal, n u m b e r . g f the lroquois parly, which was assented to, a n d t h e Iroquois w e r e again victo­ rious. „ Tb.© “ K a u k wans,” who resided o.n the E i g h t e e n M ile C r e e k , being.present as friends a n d glJies o f t h e - E r i e s , .now invited the Iroquois .party, lo visit them .before they returned home.- and -thither the w h o le, party repaired.. T h e ‘chiehof tfieJEries as- a last, trial of th.e courage tuid ,pro\yess of h is guest?, proposed io select ten men tojbe m a tched by the saifte n u m b e r . f r o m l | e Iroquois party to wrestle—rand that the vie-, ior.shQ u i d despatch his advej'sar-y on ih'e spot bv braining fiim with a tom a h a w k ’ a n d bearing ofl (the s c a lp as a trophy. •> - . T h i s sangu i n a r y proposition ..was not at all pleasing to the . I r o q u o i s : they, however, co n ­ cluded to a c c e p t the c h a llenge, with a determ in, ation shoufd they be victorious, not to execute the blood part of the . proposition. T h e cham-. pious were accordingly c h o s e n — a Sencca \yas the first to step into the ring, and threw his..ad­ versary amid the shotits oj the multitude.* H e stepped back and declined to execute his victim, who l a y passive at his feet. A s quick as t h o u g h t the^chief ofth e F r i e s seized the tom a h a w k , a n d at a s ingle blow scattered the bruins o f his van­ quished w a r r i o r over the ground. His* body was dragged out o f t h e w a y ancf a n o ther’cham pion o f the E r i e s presented himself, he was as quickly thrott-n by bis m o re powerful antago­ nist df the Iroquois party, and as quickly des­ patched bv the infuriated chief. A thiVfi met the s a m e fate. T h e c h i e f o f the I roquois party s e e ing the ter­ rible excitem e n t that agitated the multiiuds gave a signal to retreat. E v e r y man obeyed tfie s ig­ nal, and in an instant they were out of sight. In two hours they arrived in Tu-shu-w a y , gath'ered up the trophies of their victories, and were on their way home. T h i s visit o f t h e hundred w a r r i o r s of the five nations, and its results, only seryed to increase th e j e a l o u s y . o f t h e . E r i e s . and,to convince them that they had powerful rivals lo contend with. It was no pari ofiheir policy to cultivate friend­ ship and strengthen their own. potyer by cultiva­ ting peace with other tribes. T h e y knew of no mode of s e c u r i n g peace to themseiyes but by exterm inating all who. m ight oppose them ; but tbe combination of several pqvveiful tribes^ a n y one o f.whom m i g h t be al- mostan equal maid) for them, and of whose personal prowess they had seen s u c h an exhibi: tion, inspired ihe E r i e s vvith the most , a n x ious forebodings. T o cope with them collectively they saw was impossible. T h e i r only hope therefore, was in being able, by a vigorous -and sudden movement tp destroy them in detail.— W it h this view a powerful w a r party was i m n i e diately organized to a ttack the Senecas, who re­ sided at the foot of Seneca L a k e (the present site of G e n e v a ,) and a l o n g t h e banks of the Seneca riveT. It happened that at ihis time there resi­ ded am o n g the E r i e s a Seneca w h o in early life had been taken prisoner, and had married a husband of the E r i e tribe. H e died and left h e r a widow wiihout c h ildren, a s tr a n g e r a m o n g -sirangers Seeing tlie terrible note of p r e p a r a ­ tion for a bloody onslaught upon her kindred and friends, s h e formed the resolution of app r u zing them of their danger.

But the victors did\nol*Tallow them a moment’s repose, but pursued them in their flight, killing w ithbutdiscrim ination all who fell into their hands.

E a c h one bore a bat, used to throw or strike a ball, tastefully ou na mented, being a hickory stick about five feet long bent over at-the end and a thong netting wove into the bow.

T o remove some erroneous impressions which are qbroad in ref­ erence to this matter, vve have been furnished by Mr. K endall, for publication, wjvb the follow­ ing extract of a letter Irdni 'Gen'eral Jackson, d a­ ted M ay 25, 1845 : “On the subject of my papers, you are to re­ am them as long as you think necessary to use hem. Should you dis, they are to pass forth­ with into Mr. B lair’s hands.'

She and her \ son vvere three hours in that cabin, almost buried in water. In talking vvitb some friends before she sailed, they narra­ ted how*a woman was saved in similar circum­ stances'a year or two since, in a Hingharir pack­ et, and it gave her courage through all those, to her interminable, three hours, to struggle for life. H e r head having risen beiweeD the hea­ vy beams of the cabin roof, she was left a brea­ thing place, free from the water that filled the cabin. ’Having fortunately also secured a firkin cov- e r / s b e got it under h e r feet, w h ich just raised her m o u th above th e w.ater. W ith one hand she held the boy a n d w ith the other kept up a knocking with a mustard box against the roofol ihe cabin, lacerating her hand badly in the mean time. fih t t three hours, which to her were an eter­ nity, did she cling to her boy and to life, till the dull licking ofher feeblo tocsin of alarm fell on the ear o f her resellers as they were about aban­ doning their noble efforts.'
