Description deurs from us, and we found ourselves among flourishing set- tlements of human kind, chequered by squares of fields and regularly-planted trees. We paused at a pretty little village, Harrisburg," I think, to water the horses at the stream which flowed through vineyards and peach orchards. A red mountain stood as a background, with a great arch in it which was conspicuous. for many miles. Here it had been intended that we should dine; but we only watered the horses, and the two or three carriages that had come up rapidly followed us on. No lunch, and no stopping to feed the teams, and for the first time, no waiting for the slower carriages to keep up with us! I wondered at it, and grew anxious, for several miles back my boys had begged to ride with Elder Potteau, and his wagon was out of sight. A little farther on we drove up a steep ascent and entered a dark canon. There was a sudden halt-a little bustle. I looked out. By the president's carriage appeared half a dozen horsemen surrounding one whose horse's mouth was bloody, and who held a pistol in his hand. His own arms were grasped by two of the other horsemen, and his pale face wore a forced, fixed smile. I saw a man peeping at us from behind the rocks, who stole away unnoticed, and then the riders galloped ofi with the pale man among them.6g g8Mrs. Kane's reference is probably to Leeds and then Harrisburg.
