Pochahantas:- Over the western door of the Rotunda of the Capitol at Washington is a beautiful piece of sculpture, executed by Capellano a pupil to the celebrated Carova. The group consists of five figures representing the precise moment when Pochahantas by her humane and generous interposition, saved Captain Smith from being executed in compliance with the order of her father, the Chief Powhatan. Capt. Smith is attired in the military (1606) reclining on his elbow, his body extended ready to receive the death blow from the war mace of an Indian who stands near his head. The Chief, in consequence of the interposition of his daughter, is motioning the Indian, while Pochahantas is hanging over Capt. Smith to protect him. He gives in his narrative the following sketch of this incident: 'Having feasted me after the best barbarous manner they could, a long consultation was held; but the conclusion was two great stones were brought before Powhatan, then as many as could lay hands on me, dragged me to them, and thereon laid my head; and being ready with their clubs to beat out my brains. Pochahantas, the king's dearest daughter, when no entreaty could prevail got my head into her arms and laid her own upon mine to save me from death; whereat the emperor was contented I should live to make him hatchets, and her belts, beads ' copper.'
