To the Editor o f the Austin City Gazette.
Sir : I was formerly, a citizen of the U.
States, and have been living in Mexico for
17 year?. I was, not long since, at a mining
district, in 'Mexico, in, the neighborhood of
GuaJelejara; and, while there, a Mexican
came to me, and said that there was a man
from Texas, working in Salinus' mine, who
rhad requested of bi.n to ask the first Ameri
can he saw, to come and see him, as he
wished to send some word to a tiimily he had
" . left in the Slate of Tennessee. To enter a
mine in Mexico )'ou have to obtain permis
sion from the worker or owner, and he sends
with you the overseer.
I went to the owner, and obtaining per
mission, went with the overseer, and v;is ta

convicts are placed to wo: It. Tiieie were

From the SLjalarUs Clarion of the VkUst.
The following account of a deed & blood
says the Louisville Jourmd of tl.o iritis.
copy from the Frankfort Commonwealth of
MOST AWFUL AXDIIORRIdV
A letter from a gentleman in Greensburv,
to a citizen of this place, of the date of MarcH
t.ie Cth, states that tliere has just been li
closed and brought to light, one of the (iost
shocking murders ever committed in a chris
tian land. In July 1838, there ijyfed in
ireen County, about 7 miles south West of
Ureensburg, a woman by the itjme of Lu
cindii White. She had her twdj sons, one
15 or 1G years old the other 1 J or 14, and
Lcr daughter-in-law, (whose Inijband lives in
the southern States.) wilh a i-Fiild 18 or 20
months old, were all living togetlier. In J u
ly 1 83C, intending to move south to their re
lations, a man by the name of Carrington
Simpson, volunteered and undertook to re
move them. On a certain night, the younger
Mrs. White, her child, and the elder Mrs.
White's younger bny, were packed on horses,
rnd af:or they h:;dgnne iore than a mile,
tl.cy wore knocked in t!ihead and killel.
and" Lurkd i i r.n o!d out Vllf;e m a hole
about two feet deep. N
On the next morning, the elder boy w as sent
oifunder some pretext, rnd did not return for
a woe!;. Oa the next night after the first
murder, t'.e old wo.iian was killed at her
own hoi!.;e. and put info l!ie same hole ; and
the older boy returned in about a week af
ter, was killed ;;nd buried in the same place;
i:ia!:':icr in :;11 five bumn l.'e'r.gs. Suspicions
have i.iv n .vli.c.L for souse months and grew
