PENNSYLVANIA PIONEER LIFE.

The following incident comes to as from
Brook line, Massachusetts:

George Whitmer or Whitmore resided in
Northumberland county. On Easter morn-
ing in 1780, it is stated, that as his oldest
son Philip, aged 1 9 years, was lighting the
fire, the door was broken open by Indians
who tomahawked him, and shot the father
while he was reaching for his gun. They
killed the mother before she got ont
of bed, while Sarah, aged 17, Mary,
aged 10, Peter, aged 8, George,
aged 6, and John, aged 4, and an in-
fant were carried off. Sarah carried the
child for two days, bat it cried and worried
so that an Indian dashed it against a tree
and killed it Catherine, aged 14 years, and
Ann, aged 12 years, were in the Sngar Bosh
at the time looking after the sap. Seeing
the house burning, they hid for three days
until the neighbors fearing some of the fam-
ily were likely to have been in the Sngar
Bosh before daylight, looked for and rescned
them. Catherine married a man named
Baker, and years after went to the Genesee
Valley. Ann married one Ermentront, re-
maining in Pennsylvania. Tradition states
that the Indians divided the captives among
themselves. Sarah and George followed the
8enecas, Peter and Mary the Mohawks, and
John the Tonawandas. When tbey were re-
leased, the younger children had become so
accustomed to savage life that tbey did not
want to stay with the whites. It is stated
that Sarah went to Philadelphia and married
Horatio Jones. This Horatio Jones it is
stated belonged to the Bedford Rangers, at
the time they were taken by the Indians in
1781, when Jones was carried captive to the
Genesee country. It is more than probable
that it *as there that Sarah Whitmer became
acquainted with him.

[Iiquiry is made in regard to this family.
We can find no record, however, ot the mat-
ter in either the history of Wyoming or in
Lycoming county. It is more than proba-
ble that the Hon. John Blair Linn can fur-

PAXTON OF MARSH CREEK.

I find that Samuel Paxton, sr., settled on
Marsh Creek, now in Adams county, Pa.,
prior to 1740, but how many years it is diffi-
cult to ascertain. He and three of his sons
took up different but adjoining tracts of land,
which were warranted to them in Match,
1741." • » • • "These sons were
Thomas, Samuel, jr., and John. There
were other children, but I am not in posses-
sion of their names. Samuel was an old
man when he came to America. Of this
family Tbomaft, or his son Thomas, settled
in Western Pennsylvania, and from him de-
scended the Rev. John R. Paxton, now
of the city «f New York. The Rev.
W. M. Paxton, D D., descended
from a brother of Samnel Paxton, sr. These
were the children of James Paxton. John,
the son of Samuel, sr., disappears from the
records, and may be the John yon are after.
* * * * * The foregoing has come to me
from Missouri.

As early as 1748.1 find in this county, thee
Angusta county, Virginia, a widow Paxton
with three sons, Samuel, Joseph and Wil-
liam, and in 1756 two other sons, John and
Thomas. Joseph died unmet ried in 1755,
and devised his lands to Samuel and William
— Samnel died in 1756, devising lands, John
was born in 1716 and died 1787 — aged 71
years. Thomas died in 1788, aged 69 years.

Joseph i'i bis will (dated 1755), bequeaths
a legacy to each of the two children of a
married sister, when the executors may be
able to send them," showing she lived in
Pennsylvania or Ireland.

John is described in a deed made in 1750
as "late of the Province of Pennsylvania,
county of Lancaster." He married Polly
Blair. I would teel almost certain from
names, ages, Ac, that theee five Paxtons
were the sons of Samnel Paxton, sr., from
the foregoing which I have quoted. Could
cot the Thomas Paxton spoken of there
have been a brother and not a son of Samnel
Paxton, sr. ? w. p.h.

COLXXU.



A MlHISTKB OF THB " LONO AOO."-—

"H. U.," in giving some recollections of the



ministers of the olden time, has this to say
of one of them: "His disposition was evi-
dently a happy one. His self- estimate was
accordingly high ; like Lorenzo Dow and his
beard, *he was at peace with himself. ' On
the other hand, hit* reverence regarded his
flock as but children, fit only for the milk of
the Word, and very tbin milk at that This
discrepancy of opinion between pastor and
people probably accounts for the fact that
his pastoral charges were of short duration. ' r

••A LOAFBB-I.OOK1MG CITY."

It is not flattering to one's home-pride, to-
quote what is sometimes said against onr
city — bnt the following from the * 'Diary of
Phillip Hone," who traveled through this
section in 1847, gives as a striking picture of
the appearance of Harrisburg, forty- three
years ago, in contrast with the city under the
new order of things:

"Harrisburg, June 10. [1847.] We left
Philadelphia at seven o'clock, and came to
this place, one hundred and six miles by
railroad, at 8 o'clock. The weather is warm,
but a fine breeze irade the ride delightful..
The road passes through one of the most
fertile and best cultivated districts in the-
United Statee; bnt there is not a pretty town
on the route, and none of any note bnt Lan-
caster; nor is Harrisburg, though dignified*
by the name ol the capital of the great State
of Pennsylvania, anything moie than a mis-
erable collection of lawyers' offices and bar-
ber shops. There is not a handsome edi flee-
in the place, that we could find, with the ex-
ception of the State Honse and pnblic offices,
which are in good style, but constructed of
the everlasting red brick and white marble.
The town is beautifully situated on an em-
inence overlooking the Susquehanna, which is-
here a fine stream, and deserves something
better than this loafer-looking city to grace-
its banks. We have determined, as a choice-
of evils, to t o to-morrow to Pittsburg by the
canal, although we shall be three nights on
the voyage, in preference to one hundred and>
fifty miles of stage traveling by Chambers-
flu rg, on dusty roads in this warm weather.

"June 1 1. — At three o'clock we embarked'
in the canal boat "Delaware," Captain
Keller, on a canal voyage of more than two-
hundred miles. The weather is pleat ant and*
we have an agreeable set of passengers; not
