AMERICA* ABT aid GENIUS, j What a shine it is liut our Atuericio artists are not more noticed by their I countrymen. I should suppose that it would be our pride, as well as pleasure to encourage, even in its infancy, the genius of our own people?those born on I our own soil?the germ of their intellects fostered and nurtured in their own bo soms while drinking at the pure font of freedom's rills, gurgling from their native hills, end basking in the beams of some glorious sun, at noonday, or gently mus ing while he sets in beauty? earl v learn I the power that is born in them of paint ing on canvas, or chiseling from maible, I something that will make them immor tal. ^ But when these thoughts come to be p?*t in practicc, what a disappointment often to their dearest hopes, when thev njceive no token of encouragement. A tHU of praise would sometimes send a tfiHTl of rapture through their bosoms ? but they are left to toil and labor with out this incense being cffered at the shrine so dear to an artist's heart; while they see foreign art praised and accepted: not that we would wish to depreciate the genius of the Old World. Who would not love to lriger around the classic shade; of imperial Rome; and view with I delight, mingled with sorrow, the ruius of the once renowned Athens! But this is written to call the attention of the public to a gentleman and sculp I tor, now a resident of this city. We al* lude to Dr. Horatio Stone Ab >ut a year since we visited his studio, and had the pleasure of seeing several busts. A beautiful bust of one of the fair daughters of the metropolitan city attracted us greatly; so much expression was thrown around the lovely picture, that it was pleasant and wond ;rful to behold the inanimate material so life-like. At that time there was also in his studio an ex cellent likeness of ex-President Fillmore (n ho would not love to see frequent iei? I iesentations of that noble man, whom a;l must admire who have a true and patriotic regard for their country's weal I registered in their hearts!) I In c mipany with others who derived pleasure from the visit, we called again a short time since to see other bnphi evidences of Dr. Stones genius. We gaz- J with astonishment atthemarblel bust of Thomas li. Benton, and the kn-l ger we gazed the more we were convinced I that it was a perfect embodiment of thatl talented statesman, " liis every look and feature eloquently touched." Kext came under our observation the bust of the I lovely child of our Secretary of War. which was just completed. It is indeed a perfect specimen of art, beautiful ?? be-| yond compare." What thrilling sensa tions must these bereaved parents expe-| rience on beholding this " reseinblaucel dear of their much cherished boy." Inl conclusion, let me advise ait true lovers! cf art to call at Dr. Stone's studio and! encouragc such talents as far as mav be I in their power; they will find him a gen-1 tlemen of true politeness and varied ac-| quirements, and certainly a sculptor of I real genius?an American Kuow Somcl thing without the aid of European schools I Government should give him a substan-1 tial token of appreciation by placing the I bust of Mr. Benton near that of ourl highly esteemed and beloved Chief Jus-| tico laney. Vibginics. I THE FOE TEAPE ADVEF1DRI. BY WASHINGTON IRVLKG. Colter, with the hardihood of a regu I lar trader, had cast himself loose from the party ot Lewis and Clark, in the verv heart of the wilderness, and had remain-1 ed to trap beaver alone, on the head wa-1 ters of the Missouri. Ilere he fell in with I another lonely trapper like himself, named Potts, and they agreed to keep together. They were in the very region of the terrible Blackfeet, at that time thirsting to revenge the death of their companions, and knew that they had to expect no mercy at their hands. They were obliged to keep concealcd all day in the woody margins of the rivers, set-1 ting their traps at nightfall, and taking them up before daybreak. It was a fear-1 ful risk for the sake of a few beaver I skins; but such is the life of a trapper. They were on a branch of the Missou-1 ri called Jefferson's Fork, and had set I their traps at night, about six miles from 11 a small mer that emptied iUelf into the! forks. .Early in the morning, they as-1 ccnded the river in a canoe to examine I the traps. The banks on each side were 11 high and perpendicular, and cast a shade over the stream. As they were softly paddling along, they heard the tramp- i ling of many feet upon the banks. Col-1 ter immediately gave the alarm of "In dians !" and was fir instant retreat. I Potts scoffed at him for being frightened! at the trampling of a herd of bufWoes. ' Colter checked his uneasiness, and pad-1 i died forward. They had not gone much - further, when frightful whoops and yells i burst forth from each side of the river, I and several hundred Indians appeared on 11 either bank. Signs ware made to the un- i 1 fortunate trappers to come on shore. 1 They were obliged to comply. Before ' they could get cut of their canoc, a sav- < age seized the rifle of Potts. Colter 1 sprang on shore, wrested the weapon - from the hands of the Indian, and re- i stored it to his companion, who was still < in the canoe, and immediately poshed into the stream. There was a sharp twang of a bow, and Potts cried out that ' he was wounded. Colter urged him ton come on shore and submit, as his only f chaucc for life; but the other knew there i was no prospect of mercy, and dctcrmin- t cd to die game; leveling his rifle, he shot i one of the savages dead on the spot The] < next moment he fe!l himself, pierfced with i numerous arrows. r. - 1 j Thei vengeance of the savages was now! i turned upon Colter.

Some were inr anting him up as a mark. and having a trial of skill at his expense. The chief bowevea, was for nobler sport, lie seized Colter bv the collar, and demanded if he could run fkst. The unfortunate trapper was too well Acquainted with the Indian customs not to comprehend the drift of the question. He was to ran for his lifr, toforoish a kind of Iranian hunt -L.,LE!7?ut?T8, Tfcoufl> "* realitj he wm(noted by by his brother banters for swiftness of foot, he assured the chief he was every bad runner. Uia stratarem ?i"b^ tS"? VnUg* #rou,Mi led by the chief into the prairie, about four hundred vards from the main body of savages and then turned loose, to save himself if he could. A tremendous yell let him know that the whole pack of bloodhounds were in hill cry. Colter flew rather than ran ? he was astonished at his own speed: but he had six miles of prairie to traverse tefore he could reach Jeffrron Fork of the Missouri ; how coold he hope to hold out snch a distance with the odds of seven hundred to one agsinst him ? The p ain, too, abounded with the nricklv zz\:hb T?dwi *? ? 6U11 he lied on, dreading each moment to hear the twang of a bow, and feel an ar row quivering at his heart. He did not e*eu dare to look round, lest he should lose an inch of that distance on which his lij^Jepended. He had run nearly n, u/,7 *Cr068 the P'ain' When ** >ouudof pursuit grew somewhat fainter, and he ventured to turn his head. The main body of his pursuers were a consid erable distance behind him : several of the fastest runners were scattered in the distance : while a swift-footed warrior, anntd with s spear, was not more than ft hundred yards behind him. Inspired with new hope, Colter re doubled his exertions, but strained him self to such a degree that the blood gushed from his mouth and nostrils,and steamed down his breast. He arrived within a mile of the river. The sound of fool steps gathered upon him. A glance be hind him showed his pursuer within twenty yar.s, and preparing to launch n:s 8i>ear. Stopping short, he turned round aud spread out. his arms. The lavage, confounded at this sudden action attempted to stop and hurl his spear, but fell in the very act. His spcarVtuek in the ground and the shaft broke in his hand. Co.ter plucked up the pointed part, pinned the savage to the earth, and continued his flight. The Indians, as they arrived at their slaughtered com panion, stopped to bowl over him. Ool ter made the most of this prccious delav, gained the skirts of the cottonwood bor dering the river, dashed through it, and and plunged into the streftin. He swftni to the neighboring island, against the upper end of which the drift-wood had lodged in such quantities as to form a natural raft; under this he dived, and swam below water until he succeeded in getting a breathing place between the iloaiiog trunks of trees, who* branches ftnd bushes formed a covert several feet above the level of the water. They plunged into the river and swamp to the rftft, passing and repassing, and seeking fjr him in all direotions. They at length gave up the search, and he then swam silently down the river, and made his es cape. Militia Foece of tue United State*.
