THE FROZEN HEART.
1 A FBONTIKU 8KETCXI.
In the western part of tho State of Io
wa thcro is a ridgo of sharp bluffs, which
for somo distance flanks tho Missouri
Kivcr. It was hero tho Indians met in
treaty several years ago, and from the
fact a city has takeu'its name -Council
Among tho early settlers of this sec
tion of the country thero was a family by
tho name of Denver, consisting of o lath,
er and mother, one son and two daughter",
the eldest of whom was some sixteen
years tf age. 8 lib was a lovely young
creature lovely in her in note iH good,
ncss, nud she wan beloved by a young
man named 'Edwin Hobart."
Hohart had formed his attachment for
this young crcatnro while she yet resided
in the East; and when, her father re
moved in tho West, tho young man fol
lowed. Hut he had never been an espe
cial favorite of the father, and he now ap
peared to be less no than ever.
, Mary Denver had formerly received
he address of tho young man with some
degree of favor, but she n.iw the dislike
her father cntt'rtaii'od toward the young
man, and nlihoughshc could not give any
reaon fur it, he felt that it could not be
without foundation. So ho frankly in
formed Hubart that he mut ceo to ad
druns her until her father should feeldif
ferently in tho matter.
To this Ilabnrt replied:
" .lary, I have loved you long and
tenderly even from my earliest recollec
tion. I have left toy homo to follow you,
I have carefully examined every act ot
my lift, and I cannot find an intentional
dihonet one. I believe your , father's
dislike to myself to be entirely without
foundation. Hut you know yonr own
feelings. If you will love me and con
rent to be mine, your father will soon
learn that he has hated without a cause.
IT you reject me, you will iend me upon
tho world with a frozen heart; and God
only knowp, in my impulsiveness, what I
might do, or what would bcomc of roe."
This sounds something like a threat,"
returned the girl proudly, and she turnfd
Two nights after tho conversation tho
alarm of India in was given '-Mothers
sprang from their couches and clasped
their little ones to their boku)s iu terror.
Strong men scited their weapon, and
prepared to defend their homes to the
Ono dwelling was already in flame.
A few shots had been heard, a shriek
had arisen upon the still night air, and
then all was still save the crackling fire.
No other houso was molested, and the
savage appeared to have withdrawn.
In a short time the daylight dawned.
ncd the neighbors began to assemble
around tho destroyed home, which proved
to be that belonging to Mr. Denver and
A oarclt for tho tnmatcs wa at onto
instituted. Tho mother was found hor
ribly mutilated and scalped. The son
had died nobly fighting, as his wounds
attested, and the youngest daughter was
mangled in an equally horrible manner.
A still further tearch resulted in the
discovery of Mr. Dcuver. lie had been
calped, but was still alive, and had
crawled into a ditch fur concealment ; but
ho was" insensible.
All search for Mary was in vain she
wan nowhere to be found.
Among thiwo present was a young man
who appeared to bo deeply affected by
thi terrible deed, and even wept. But
drying his tears, he exclaimed : 1
I tnust leave tears for women. Men
must think of revenge. Wlwre is Ed
mund Hobart V
Ho does'not appear to bo here."
' "Not here 1 He must bo found at once,
lie is a young man, like myself, and
mu3t become one of the leaders in this
matter. , It shall bo followed up to tho
Hobart Was nowhere to be found ; and
Charles Barry, the weeping man, appear
ed somewhat uneasy. Then ho hinted
his suspicions, and at last declared open
ly that if Hobart did not soon return he
should believe that the deed was commit
ted under his direction, by savages whom
he had employed. Allusion was then
mado-io the rejection of Hobart by Mary,
and ho was understood to have made a
terrible threat at tho time. f
Mr. Denver Was now able to speak a
few words. Ho told them that savages
had done tho work, but that ho believed
th;m to bo headed by a white man in dis- j
gUIHJ. , , , v ;..:;::;v. , ', - .. u , -
(ould that white man have been Jud-
win Hobart asked Barry. ' j
5 Mr. Denver remained silent for a time,!
It appeared to be a difficult question to
answer.i .But ho finally raid : I
It Hobart had any motive tor doing
this, and I could believe him eapablo of
Committing so'terriblo a deed,' I might
fix the 1 guilt; upon him; for certain it is
that the white man is about tho slzo' of
Hobart, and his mevements were much
the, Batuo. ' s ..'' ?
lie is tho guilty one,''; said Barry,
''and, by, Heavens, he shall suffer I ,?.ril
hunt him ib the end of the earth but I
will find him and bring him back." ,,
- The day passed, and the excitement in
creased in the little settlement' Hobart
was still absent ;s Scouts had 7 been sent
ot, however, in search of him ; and just
as night wa coming on ho was brought
back. : : : , ;' ; - h::i-Ab
i;By this Uirae tho -excitement -had
reached such a high pitch that the infu
riated people could scarcely be restrained
from rushing upon him and tearing him
to'pieccsA - But Barry assumed the com
mand, and declared that everything must
be done in order.' ' : f: , firU ?
Tho; trial was a brief, one. ' Hobart
could explain his absence int no other way
than by (declaring he haa merely; been
away lob a. hunt. This .was unsatisfac
tory. ""v'r.- - ' - - - ; " i-v . -;r -- '.:
Just before the decision was given, an
Indian carba forward, and offered to give
in his testimony. Ho was permitted to
do so, and ho declared that Hobart had
tried to hire him aomo -days before, to
engage in that work, but that ho had de
clined. . ' ' t . , . .. , ,';i , ,,
' This was enough. The Indian was a
drunken, worthless fellow, but his words
were believed more especially as tho ac
cused had been recently seen in earnest
conversation with him. Hobart was Con
demned to bo hung at midnight. v ,
Two hours wcro to elapse before the
execution was to tako place ; during this
time preparations for it roust bo made.
Barry had resolved that it should be a
grand affair. An example roust be road o
of Hobart for the benefit of all such as
should bo inclined to do wrong in tho fu
ture. , . ' v .--' . I :
; The preparations were complete nthalf
past eleven. A gallows had been rccted
upon an open field. Around this, -on
every side, was heaped up quantities of
brushwood, forming circle. These we ro
to la lighttKl otwl the ! prisoner then
marched to his doom. . .
There was no place where Hobart could
be imprisoned with rafcty, and so he was
firmly bontid with ropes and placed pros
trate upon tho ground. In addition to
this, heavy chains wers placed upon him,
and forked limbs cut from trees, the
prongs sharpened, and driven down into
the earth over his limbs. In this painful
position the poor; accused was kept for
two haurp, unable to move, his face &nd
form flat upon the frtsty earth,'
Tho citizens surrounded him, heaping
their curses upon him, while some could
not even refrain from inflicting blows
upon him, though they felt sore that he
would pay the penalty of his crimes with
his life. . . .
Everything in readiness, Hobart was
taken to the fatal spot. Tho chains
clanked fearfully at evcrv tep, and he
staggered under their weight, but Ids
bearing was that of a man resolved to
suffer bravely, although in silence. -
The fatal ncKwo was placed around his
neck, and theo the fires were lighted.
The flames shot up, throwing their red
glare al. around. And the rccne was a
sickly one. ,
The doomed man stood erect. His eyes
hone like stars as he gazed upon the burn
ing masses near him and the crowd of
angry citizens. His face was very pale,
and wore a deathly hue in the light of tho
blazing log; but there were no marks of
fear upon it.
Have you anything to say before you
die ?" asked Barry.
Duly this," replied the doomed man,
firmly. "If you ever gee 3Iary alive,
tell her that I loved her to the hit, and
that I am innocent of this crime." ,r,
" Up with the wretch !" cried Barry.
" Stay! Let the white-man live!" ex
claimed a commanding voice, and a huge
Indian Chief leaped within the circle.
" What wants the Chief ?" asked Bar
ry, evincing some fear.
To speak with your people for a mo
ment." - - -
Then turning to them he continued :
" You arc children. Tho guilty die
not I ke that man. You should know
this." - .
" Is he not guilty V asked a hundred
voices. - i
"Who Is the guilty one." i
" Listen, for the Chief speaks truly.
A dog of the palo face came to my war
riors. He gavo them ffiro water and
made them mad. Then ho bribed them
to do that deed of blood, and led them
on. He told them - that they fehould kill
all in that wigwam but the palo maiden.
She had refused to become his fquaw j
but ho would take her to' the mountains
ond make her his slave." s
" Where i- tho pale maiden ?" cried
several voices., ; . ? V
" I have brought her back. I cannot
givo you back your murdered ones, but I
will give you the dead bodies of those who
murdered them, for I have slain ' the
breakers of our treaty !" ! a; . '?
Mary now entered tho -circlo, and was
received with the warmest greetings. But
the men asked : , 1
Hate you killed tho white man with
other murderers?" ;
- "There is the pale faced dog." :
Tho Chief pointed to Barry, who at
tempted to. escape, but was ! securedand
in ten minutes was hanging in the place
he had prepared for Hobart. '
The blow was a severe one tor ;au.-r
Poor Hobart suffered an age of agony in
tho few short hours of that night, and he
could not readily recover from the shock.
His heart had bced froze ; but Mary, as
his wife, warmed it into life again, y t

was extracted, with the, design ofr being

of the first military heroes of his age and
country j ' but now, he having suffered
himself, to be bribed by tho blandish
ments and promises of political hucksters,
and having entered into tho arena of pol
itics, and stooped to tho most despisablc
means to satisfy the extreme and lawless
wing of a radical, sectional and lawless
party; tliat he is in harmony with nigger
suffrage, high taxation for the masses and
exemption for the rich, for subversion of
the Constitution, and for military dicta
torship, and tho utter enslavement ot ten
millions of white citizens, in order to sc
curo the votes of 000,000 niggets, the
people aro beginning' to inquire into his
public and private history, and he must
now pass the ordeal of public scrutiny ;
he must now stand or fall upon his own
merits ; , his military genius mut be
measured by the truth of history. If the
history of his military operations shall es
tablish, the fact that be is a gnat mili
tarp hero of superior abilities, we would
not pluck a single flower from the wreath
with which the Radicals are seeking to
docrate his, brow. No one claims any
thing' for him on tho score of statesman
ship, private worth, moral and social
qualities or relations. In these respects
perhaps he does xot come up to the
Editor of the Enterprise. Hi3 great
exploits as the General of the army is
urged in his behalf as his qualifications
for the Presidency. But let the truth of
his history speak, and then judge vc of
ins merits as a minurvcincitain. At the
terrible and bloody battle of Pittsburg
Landing he was moat shamefully whipped,
and but for tho timely arrival of General
Buel he would have been entirely routed
and driven into the river. In his march
to Richmond, he had more men slaught
ered : than the estimate number of Lee's
array. So frightful was the havoc and
slaughter that tho dead bodies of 15,000
of his men laid for six weeks upon the
battlefield of the Wilderness, food for
the birds of prey. Great generalship
docs not consist in rashly, foolishly rush-
tug into the jaws ot death. ;
Beginning with Lee's surrender, the
entire rebel force surrendered to the Un
ion arms was 174,223 men.' (See report
secretary.) At the close of the ar the
number of Federal soldiers in the service
was 1,100,000 1,100,000 having already
been mustered out of the service. (Same
Where was the great military skill dis
played in the General of the army in clos
ing the war? Did it consist in forcing
the surrender of 174,223 men to his ar
mies containing 1,100,000 men ? ,
General Grant, in person, received the
surrender of General Lee'ii army, 27,805
men. (Secretary '' of War's report.)
There were 253,200 men mustered out of
the service of the United States at Wash
ington, up to July Gth; 18G5. On July
10th the army of 'the Potomac etill con
sisted of ' 102,851 men (same report.)
Add these to those mustered out and "we
have 380,051 men. With which , Gene
ral Grant captured Richmond, Petersburg,
Lee and his entiro army, which consisted
27,805 men- oftet fighting it out on that
line all summer. s 'r , ; a t!
Can one sco any evidenco of great mil
itary skill in this?. We venture to say
that there was, not a captain, or perhaps
corporal, in the service who could not
have have captured Leo's army of 27,805
men .with the army of 'the Potomac.-
These .are facts ; . these ; are the figure.
Eacts ,and. figures aro stubborn things,
more stubborn than the General himself.
