The Petilion of the Ochipwey Nation of North American Indians,

to the London Society for Missions.
[Communicated by a Gentleman at St. Mary's Falls, near Lake Hurun.]

Fatheas and brothers, leaders of the blinds
? 'Hear us, the wretched relics of our kind;
*). Once the free Lords of Canada's doinains,

But wanderers now,- a bation's pour remains ;
Dévoid of light, by vaja traditions led,
Yet not averse the path of truth to tread.
The Frenchman's God they bid us erst adore,
Soon as they landed on our peaceful shore.
Taught us the cross to kiss, to mea to pray;
To please tb’Almighty, this the only way!
They must we tell the man in black, in truth
The sins and follies of our thoughless youth;
Sell off our beaver, produce of the chace,-
Present our silver, thus procure release
From past misdeeds. Then a new score begin.
While beaver lasted, 'twas not hard to sin,

But now, alas! exhausted is our store!
And rum provokes us but to sio the more,

The sons of labour now usurp our soil,
To us unknown the arts of useful toil.
To Western hill, and Lake Superior's shore,
We tracc the path our fathers trod before ;
But chang'd our manners, and our customs lost,
We scarce have strength to brave the winter's Trost;
Pursued by traders, who, with lust of gain,
Tempt with the draught that ever proves our bane ;
Our reason gone, unmov’d, we then behold
Our wives aud children shiv'ring in the cold;
Nor oft allay'd the rage that tires our braiu,
Until a friend, a wife, or child, is slain.
Each sayage virtue to our fathers known,
Forever from their wretched offspring flown:
To darkness, vice, and ignorance a prey,
And no kind friend to point the heav'nly way!
From crime to crime insensibly we're led;
None to direct tie better path to tread.

But we have heard that, far beyond the sea,
You, fathers, teach and practice charity;
That you disclose a God, () glorious thought !
Whose love and mercy are not sold and bought;
But freely giv'o to those wlio seek in prayer
A Father's pity and a Father's Cire!!
Kear our petition then, and quickly sead
A kind instructor and a gen'rous friend,
Who may dispel the mist that blinds our eyes,
And make us lemp'rafe, sober, virtuous, wise.
Then pain and sorrow far from hence would fly,
Thankful for life, yet still prepar'd to die,
Our children's children, taughi to lisp your name,

Should through the wide Cabean * spread your fame.
St. Mary's Falls, 18th Oct. 1811,

The West.

The Ochipwey language is spoken and understood by the Alganquins, Nipilengs, Olawis, Manomings, Patawatings, and several other tribes, forming a population, Nough widely extended, of more iban fifty thousand souls.
