A HAN WHO IS TO HAVE. A MONUMENT.
There is now and theo s c-jmplain
in this OQuniry that its iustory L? dr
and uninteresting, that it I&C&3 4h
rdrnance of Europe, Greece; and 'Bams
and other nations with antiquity be
hind them. 35at this is3ae probably
rather to the want; of porapeotire
and atmosphere thair.to a lack oi
romantic incidents. When tho na
tional past becomes hoar and hazy
with age, the poets, tbanoyolistj and
the historians of that niture day will
probably find themselves as worth
of their in pirations aiTare the vara
and crimes o'the Cffl3a?s; tho age of
chivaly and the crusades; the pranks:
of llobin Hood; the touching story
of Mary, Queen of Scots; the great
ness of Alfred the Great; or the
braudeur of the First Napoleon.
Out of the dull mist of oar own
brief past there occasionally springs
up a picturesque and .hero.o .figure,
and in the dusty and moth-eaten me
morials of those somber days may be
traced a glowing page of romance
Among the citizens Jf the'Mohawk
valley they are talking of rescuing
one name from a long obscurity and
building a monument to the one who
bore it. It is that of Sybrant Quack
eubos. .This, is not a romantio name,
certainly. It sounds as if it anight
baTO been the name of one -of Dick
en's caricatures, orbeenuaed for a
cuaracter ma ounesqueor a comic
opera. But there was nothing ab
surd or comical in the .career of the
young man io whom it -once be
He was an "early" aeUlerof Utica.
In 175U, on the morning ofThU -mar
riage to a joitng lsHyiof Albany, ihe
was impressecl'intoihe service uf the
colonies to carry provisions- to JE"orfc
William Jlenry during the'lrreaoh
and Indian war. In the unbroken
forest the-party r-was suddenly am
bushod by Indians and -three df them
were killed, theremkiadePtaken. pris
oners. They wer placed in a row on
a fallen tree, and an Indian proceeded,
in regular order, to. brain them twith
his tomahawk. Nine-of them rolled
off the leg: the tenth was McGinnis.
Throwing himself backward,, he
planted his. feet in the stomtoh of
the Indian wa'rriorandient him fly

about five seconds, for the other In
dians immediately chopped him into
a hundred piece,-more or less-- &
It was now Quackenboss' turn to
be hacked in two. He closed his
eyes to received the blow. Fir some
reason it did not falL He looked up
and saw between the tomahawk and
himself about as hideous a face as a
squaw can -make, or have made for
her. Perhaps she had heard of John
S aiith and Pocahontas andjranted to
imitate that romantio "Virginia maiden.
Perhaps she bad heard that the young
man was almost a .bridegroom and felt
the feminine interest in him which a
male at that period of life excites in
the breasts of tho civilized female.
At all events she begged f r his life
in order. that.Quackeaboss might be
not her "bossv but her dog. Jler re
quest was granted. He was unbound,
and, not much toiiis satis action, had
his life saved for a fate'that seemed
rather jnorj disagreeable than death
would have been; at least after he had
come so near it and had made up hfs
mind to meet it
The Indians started 'for Canada.
The squaw made Quaokenboss carry
the load she would otherwise have to
carry herself.- She, however, favored
him with her company all the way,
stirred him'sp with a sharp stick
when he halted and kept him moving
