twenty bullet and buck shot holes in him, after the two murdered men had lain on the ground, to be worked at by flies, for some eighteen hours. One of these young men was my own son. The stern old man faltered. He struggled long to suppress all exhibition of his feelings; and soon, but with a subdued, and in a faltering tone, continued: I saw Mr. Parker, whom I well know, all bruised about the head, and with his throat partly cut, after he had been dragged, sick, from the house of Ottawa Jones, and thrown over the bank of the Ottawa Creek for dead. About the first of September, I, and five sick and wounded sons, and a son-in-law, were obliged to lie on the ground, without shelter, for a considerable time, and at times almost in a state of starvation, and dependent on the charity of the Christian Indian I have before named, and his wife. I saw Dr. Graham, of Prairie City, who was a prisoner with the ruffians on the 2d of June, and was present when they wounded him, in

f St: Andrew's Inlet, twenty miles north of the sea entrance to Fernandina. The flag was temporarily hoisted on board of the Mohican, Captain S. W. Godon, and the force intended for that inlet formed by signal and entered in the following order: Ottawa, Mohican, Ellen, Seminole, Pawnee, Pocahontas, Flag, Pembina, Isaac Smith, Penguin, Potomska, armed cutter Henrietta, and armed transport McClellan, the latter having on board the battalion of marines under the command of Major Reynolds. The h vessel was diligently threading her way through the narrow and tortuous channels in the marshes of Cumberland Sound, followed by the Ottawa, Seneca, Huron, Pembina, Isaac Smith, Penguin, Potomska, Ellen, and armed cutter Henrietta. The Pawnee, Ottawa, and Huron were the only vessels that succeeded in crossing the flats at the dividing point of the tides. The vessels left behind had no pilots, but at high water they got over and groped their way as they best could, as also the transports Bost

the Federals had sunk in these passes had been absorbed by the sand, together with their contents: the passes were free, but the entrance of each was, as formerly, marked by a bar of small depth. The blockading fleet kept outside of these bars, and had therefore a vast extent of water to watch. One portion kept guard over the northern passes; the remainder, separated by a considerable space, guarded the principal entrance. The Housatonic, the Augusta, and two others The Stettin and the Ottawa.—Ed. formed the northern division; the Mercedita and the Keystone State, the one of eight hundred and the other of fourteen hundred tons, were in front of the southern bar; the Memphis and the Quaker City more in the rear. On the evening of the 30th of January the whole fleet, as usual, was under steam, moored to anchor-buoys, ready to slip their cables and fall upon any blockade-runners that might happen to heave in sight. It had made an important capture during the day, that of the Engli

XX.} with Tonti and about thirty followers, ascended the St. Joseph's, and, by a short portage over bogs and 1679 swamps made dangerous by a snow-storm, entered the Kankakee. Descending its narrow stream, before the end of December, the little company had reached the site of an Indian village on the Illinois, probably not far from Ottawa, in La Salle county. The tribe was absent, passing the winter in the chase. On the banks of Lake Peoria, Indians appeared;— 1680 Jan. 4. they were Illinois; and, desirous to obtain axes and fire-arms, they offered the calumet, and agreed to an alliance: if the Iroquois should renew their invasions, they would claim the French as allies. They heard with joy that colonies were to be established in their territory; they described the course of the Mississippi, and they were willing to guide the str
