Red Jacket. This name is familiar to all. Who has not heard of Red Jacket* He was a Seneca Chief.--Every body has heard of Red Jacket. This is not the place for his history, it will be given in the Indian work referred to. Suffice it to say, he was a real pagan, wedded to the hour of his death to his peculiar notions of faith, and despising all innovations, whether christian or other, on his ancient prejudices. He was a man of powerful intellect, though much given to intemperance in drink, yet he was rarely known to engage in council, or in any business of importance except when he was perfectly sober.
