portant" in scrnnug vouu
try to Americans. -
The caravan readied their rendezvous
on Green river, the 1st of July, and the
Missionaries found a large number of the
Flat Head and Net Perces Indians on
the lookout for teachers, and learned from
them that Mr. Lee had passed their coun
tries and gone on to the Kananas Koos
(salt water). They learned that these
were the tribes who had sent three years
before for the book of God and teachers.
They found these Indians milch grieved
that Mr. Jbee had passed by them, ihey
saw at once the hand of uod pointing to
these tribes as their future mission field.
They determined that while Mr. Parker
should proceed with the Nez Perces and
Flat Head Indians to their countries, and
visit, also, the J-.nglish Irading l'osts on
the Columbia, and return to meet Doctor
"Whitman and party at that rendezvous
the next year, the Doctor should return
at otsce to the States, by the same com
pany, report to the Mission Board, and if
possible obtain associates during the win
ter, and so gain a year, and putting them
selves under protection of the American
Fur Company, according to promises al
ready given, cross the mountains the next
year and meet Mr. Parker at the rendez
vous, who after examining, the Indian
countries and the trading posts, would be
able to report as to the prospects of the
proposed mission field, the number and
character of the Nations, the character of
the unknown country, its climate, its
soil, the character of the English Fur
Traders, whether Missionaries could count
jupon their friendship or opposition.
'whether bread could be raised and sup-
j plies of clothing had, and whether we
(would be compelled to depend on wild
i ... -
game and skins.
The Nez Perces, to make sure work and
not be disappointed again, sent two of
their boys, of about fourteen years of
age, with Dr. Whitman as kind of hosta
ges for his sure return next year. The
Doctor and the Indian boys reached the
States tn the fall, with the Fur Company
and received the kindest regards from the
propiietors of the Company, at St. Loui
and their renewed assurances that thev
would afford him and his associates the
next year every protection and facil
uy in tneir power lor the invaluable per
vices he had rendered to their Company
to and from the mountains. He might
depend upon their steamer to convey his
ladies and baggage to Council Bluffs, and
their caravan to convey them to Green
river.'and their hunters to furnish daflv
food from the Buffalo bands.
On receiving the Doctor's Report,' the
American Board resolved at once to send

to the several youno; ladies who had offer
ed themselves to the Board for the work
of Mission in the Foreign Field. But
while young men enongh could be ob
tained to undertake a journey across the
continent, not a young lady could be found
filling to face the Rocky Mountains and
to risk the vast unknown beyond. The
Board and Doctor then applied to several
settled pastors who had signified their
willingness to enter the Foreign Field,
but with no better Success. Not a mar
ried or unmarried woman could be found
willing to face the hazards of that gigan
tic tintertaking. Any other part of the

yet trod. None coald be found of suffi
cient moral and physical courage to under
take this great work, but the early devot
ed Miss Prentiss, the intended wife of
Dr. Whitman ; but the Doctor could not
commence this desirable mission without
an ordained missionary and his wife. The
winter was now far gone, and the Doctor
was about to give up his mission, when,
on arriving in Prattsburgh, N. Y., my
own dear home, (it does my soul good to
write that name, after being dogged and
hunted by the blood hounds and cayotcs
of Fanaticism for so long a time in this
country, and to think of one place in this
world so like the Kingdom of Heaven)
he learned of the deep and early piety ot
my angel wife, and was told if any body
would so she would undertake the jour
ney, could the object be laid before her.
But myself and wife were appointed, and
were on our way to tne usage x auon as
The Doctor immediately got permission
of the American board for us to change
our destination if we should see fit. He
overtook and immediately made himself
and his object known to us. "We turned
aside into an inn to consider the subject.
The Doctor said this was his last hope.
If we, like the very many others who
had been solicited, should decline the
mission to the Nez Perces and Flat Head
Indians, beyond the Rocky Mountains,
the undertaking must be abandoned, at
least for another year.
That ras a most feaTfal moment in the
journey of my life. I had said in my
Academic lecture? on Temperance, "That
money enough was expended for rum
every year to build a second North Amer

A CHEAP AS1 bOOD SMOKHOrSE.
A Western New York farmer publishes
his plan ot a small, cheap and yet good
smokehouse, which, as it may coutain
some practical hints for our reader.', we
append it :
"No farmer should be without a good
smokehouse, and such an one as will be
fire-pooof and tolerablv secure from the
thetf. Fifty hams can be smoked at one
time in a smokehouse seven by eight feet
square. Mine is six by seven and is yet
large enough for most farmers.' I first
dug all the ground out below where the
frost would reach, and filled it up to the
Furface with small stones. On this I laid
my brick floor in lime nlortur. The walls
are brick eight inches thick, and seven
feet high, with a door on one side two
feet wide. The door should be made of
wood and lined with sheet.iron. For the
top I put on joists, two by four, set up
edgewise, and eight and a half inches
from center to center, covered with brick
and' put on a heavy coat of mortar. I
built a small chimney on the top, in the
