Tbe PaaMiag CtarioTt, of the 10th inst,
Winter. Our good dtizeas waked up yes
terday moraiog, to nnd everything out of doors
covered ia a gentle clothing ef iee. The long
icicles bang pendant from the roofs of house
every tree and shrub gtittered with the con
cealed particles, and drooped their tender
boughs aaaer tbe weight. It is seidoei that
bo thorough a winter scene is pressed in our
Nssbo Pbeachebs. A clause appropriately
inserted ia one of tbe code bills, says the Mis
siisippiw, prohibiting negroes from preaching
paseed the House, a few days since, by an al
most unanimous vote. The practice of liegro
preaching ia not justified by any good result
that can poeeibly flow from it ; and is con
demned by considerations of wise public pol
icy. Negroes wbo are permitted to assume the
holy functions of the palpit, become invested
with extraordinary attributes in tbe minds of
tbehr sreduloue, ignorant and soperstitoos fel
low-slaves, and acquire an influence over them
powerful for evil.
It is a significant fact, that a majority of
cases, servile insurrections, and the barbarism
attendant upon them, are attributable to negro
preachers They fill the mind of their follow
ers with devilish iuteations and incite them to
wicked actions. Nat Tuiner, a notorious ne
gro preacher, was at tbe head of the celebra
ted Southampton insurrection in Virginia, and
tbe first victim of the savage thirst for blood
was his old Mistress, wbo had treated him
witk unbounded affect! on. To the wicked in
fluences of tbe same class, the recent sur vile
disturbances are chargeable. The other day,
Sol. Smith, a negro preacher, was hung at
Cadiz, Ky., and another was hung about the
same time, for a like offence, at Pembroke.
Ned Jones, a pious rascal of tbe same calling
in HopkinsriUe, has been arrested and impris
oned by a vigilance committee, and will doubt
less e.vpiateflis crimes at the stake or the gal
These are but a few instances illustrative of
our remarks. Let the nuisance of
preaching be abated.

On the 23d of December, a force of 300 uj

A force of recruits for Gen. Walker, num
bering about three hundred men, well armed
and equipped, had arrived at Punta Arenas be
fore the Texas left, and had quartered on the
point, awaiting the repairing of another steam
boat, which-would be completed in about five
days, when they would proceed up the river
aim recapture the steamboat and endeavor to
take the man Spencer.
Just as the Texas was leaving, a messenger
arrived with the news thai Geiu Walker, fiud
imt that the lake boats did not return as usual,
harf crossed the lake to ascertain tbe cause, and
had attacked and retaken San Carlos, and was
then on his way dowa the river carrying every
thing before him.
There is no doubt that by this time the river
is again clear.

The following account of tbe party of Costa
Rrcans, under command of Spenceh, at Punta
Arenas and on the San Juan river, has been
kindly famished us by Col. Ropleb, of the
Ivtcaraeruan armr. wbo arrived ia the
'ibe steamer La. Firkin left Virgin Bay on
tbe 20th of December, tor Fort ban larios and
Toro Rapids. On our arrival at SastiHo the
next moraine we found the steamboats Cel.
Hlreer and Scoff. The Scoff had arrived the
day before from Punta Arenas. Capt. Wood,
of the Scoff, reported that on hiB way up, he
passed two large empty rafts between the Se
rapiqui and San Carloe rivers, which he looked
on as suspicious; we proceeded dowt the river
the same day. On passing tbe month of the
San Carlos river, we saw a raft with men on it
coming down, which satisfied us that the Costa
Ricans were in the vicinity. A man by the
name of Spencer, who formerly had been m the
employ of the Transit Company, and who, as
we atterwards found, was iu command, had
previously arrived, and was waiting with 150
men in ambush at the wood-landing where the
boats usually take in wood, to capture tbe boat.
Capt. Townaend, of the Col. liWrr, thought
it prudent not to sfop. The boat passed with
out being fired on. Spencer's excuse for not
firing on her was that there were too many
women on board. After we passed he imme
diately embarked bis men in bnusos, and pro
ceeded down the river. He landed his forces
about three miles above Serapiqui, where there
was a company of forty men stationed, com
manded by Capt. F. A. Thompson. Spencer
made his way down within sight of Iliompsen's
camp, and lay until tbe men were at their din
ner, when he charged in upon them taking them
by surprise, so much bo that not more than two
or three were able to get their arms. The
Costa Ricans' first fire dealing death and dis
may among them; all save tuose woo were
killed jumped iu the river and were drowned,
except six, who succeeded in reaching Punta
Arenas some days alter.
To Capt. Thomas is much blame attached.
He bad timely notice of the rafts coming down
the San Carlos river ; bis failing to put out
pickets, and neglect of instituting the necessa
ry precautions, made him responsible for the
surprise and destruction of his command. It is
said that he foueht bravely, and was wounded
! ia several places with bayonets. His life was
saved bv spencer.
After Spencer took that post, he proceeded
down the river and arrived at tbe harbour of
San Juan on the morning of the 23d December,
bringing with him Capt. Thomas as prisoner.
On bis arrival, be at once proceeded on board
of a British raao-of-war, laying in the harbor,
and delivered despatches from the President of
Costa Rica, to the commander of the British
fleet. Capt. Thomas was left on board the
man-of-war, 10 have his wounds attended to.
Before Spencer left, the commander told him
to go on with his work, and that he would as
sist him in the morning. This took place about
3 o'clock A. x. Spencer waited until dayligut
before be landed on the point, taking the agent
and employee by surprise. Spencer told them
that if there was a single shot fired, he would
not permit a single life to be saved.
As soon as Spencer had taken the Transit
Company's building, and the steamer then lay
ing there, three man-of-war gun boats, manned
each with thirty men and one Biz-pounder,
were posted in such a possession as to com
pletely command the Transit Company's build
ings. Tne commander et tnese gun noa.s, see
ing there would be no resistance, ordered them
to retire. There was not a shot fired on either
side, and Spencer was permitted to take away
I tne Uiree river steamers, wimout molestation.
i During the day, Spencer got steam on the
ooats to proceed up tne river, inrougn some
I mismanagement, two of the boats, when cast
! off, drifted over on the Greytown shore. Spen
cer found some difficulty in getting them off,
which tbe English fleet noticing, magnanimous
ly sent him chains and anchors to assist him.
While tbe boats were laying on the Greytown
shore, some citizens of that -place, to whom
the Transit Company was indebted, got out at
tachments in order to detain the boats. One
was served on Spencer, which be tcre up and
threw tbe fragments in the face of the officer.
Take note of this, ye gods, and weep I For
once be it said tbe authority of His Majesty,
the Mosquito King, was disregarded. His
Honor, T. J. Martin, the Chief Magistrate of
Grevtown, felt the insult keenlv. and made a
formal demand on the Commodore of tbe Bri
tish fleet to see that the authority of His Ma
jesty, the Mosquito King, was respected. The
answer to this formal demand was that he
could not interfere. The boats were got of
anc proceeaeo up tne river to uasuiio.
Gen. Walker having no troops at this point,
apencer uaa no trouoie to ootain possfssion.
Here lay the steamer Scoff, which they secured.
Spencer made the agent, under pain of death in
case of refusal, write an order to Capt. Ma-
honey to bring her down to Castillo; which he
did. Spencer in the meantime placed his men
in a large warehouse. Tbe Captain, on his ar
rival, maae tne steamer last, tuinKing all was
right : when this was done, the doors of the
warehouse were thrown open, and the Costa
Ricans marched on board, taktDg all hands
prisoners. Capt. Mahone vand crew were com
pelled to take the steamer up to Toro Ranlds.
where lay the steamer La Virgin. Capt. Bun
ker, seeing Capt. Mahoner and his crew at
this port, did not have the' least suspicion of
or anyming wrong, until spencer, witn tbe
Costa Ricans, stepped on board hit. boat and
On the 30th they proceeded to Fort San
Carlos, and took that post by surprise, without
firing a gun. Captain Banker and his crew
were also compelled to take the steamer La
Yirzin to San Carlos. There were certain sig
nals established between the steamers and the
fort, which were always-exchanged on ap-,
proachlngin the night; these signals were ex
changed. The steamer proceeded as usual to
point near the foit, where she stops to com
, municate with the shore. Captam Kruger
boarded the uteamer with five mn. He was
told to repair to the upper deck, -where he was
informed to at ae was a prisoner, and that if he
made any sigaals to his men in the fort, he
would be instantly shot, and was compelled to
write an order ior nis commar.d to surrender.
The steamer San Carlot, with the California
and Nicaragua passengers, left Virgin Bay en
Jtnuay mormnp, at aDouc oue o'clock-, ana pro
ceeded on her way across the lakf, arriving at
Fort San Carlos about 10 a. m. of thesameday.
The usual signals wero exchanged, and the
steamer was boarded oy two men. Or. Hard
castle and Lieut. Tyler, attached to the post,
went on shore, and the sUamer started down
the river San Juan. We had gone out a few
miles, however, before ve were met by another
steamer, commanded by the ubiquitous Spencer,
who hailed, and startled us with the intelli
gence that all the lake steamers were in pos
session of the Costa Kieans, and that Fort
San Carlos, which we had just left- Castillo,
and Serapiqiii, had been taken. This Spencer
in the bhw man who a few years since killed
Cait- Frasber, and only saved his neck for
want of evidence.
THE SIEGE OF G2ANADA.
Frem the X. O. Creit, 17lh
Yixsitf BATfjThuisJay, Jan. 1-, 1857,
Gen. Walker left Granada on the 25th of
November, for Omotepec Island and Virgin
Bay, wiili the main body of the army and most
of the sick and wounded, leaving Gen. Hen
ningsen, with about 200 troops and 150 citizens,
women and children. Gen. H. had orders to
complete the burning of the town and then re
move the balance of the ammunition, stores
and cannon to Virgin Bay. All the ammuni
tion and arsenal stores were sent off except
about S,000 rounds of rifle and minie cartridge,
Mi rounds canister snot and M shells, together
with a few round shot. Everything would
have bien removed, and the burning and evacu
ation completed by 21st or 2id, at tarthest, but
for the fact uiat uen. ii. gave notice to the na
tive population that all who desired to move
with the army to virgin Uav or Omotepec
would be transported with their baggage on
LUe steamers, free of charge, before he aban
doned tbe town. -Large numbers availed them
selves of this permission, and both the lake
steamers were occupied for three days In car
rying off their baggage. On Monday, the 24th,
at 2 p. m., the town was attacked from the
lake side. Lieut. Col. O'Neill and Major Hen
ry, of the Quarter Master's Department, took
part oi a company (about twenty-bve men,)
and made a most gallant marge upon tbe body
of the enemy, about 300 strong, who were ad
vancing on tbe town to the left of the main
road leading to tbe lake, ibe enemy was com
pletely routed, with a loss of from forty to fifty
Killed u'iem lonowea mem up until ue
found himself out of ammunition, when he re
turned to the plaza. His loss was, I think, one
killed and two wounded,
The night of the 24th was spent in fortifying
the nlaza. Oa the 25th we burnt the balance
of the buildings around the plaza, saving only
tbe parecmai cbnrcu and houses on that side.
We then occupied the church as the principal
place of defense, as its towers commanded the
whole town. On the 2Gth, commenced fighting
our way towards the lake, and occupied- the
bouses nearly to the cburch of Esquelapia. In
the afternoon, made a charge and took that
church, but were driven from it, ami did not
re-take it until the next morning. On the27tb,
moved the sick, wounded and ammunition, etc.,
towards the lake : fired the remainder of the
buildings on the plaza, and blew up tbe paro
chial cburch. At 2 p. m., attacked the church
at Guadaloupe, which is the last building to
wards the lake, and about seven hundred and
fifty yards distance from it. It was occupied
by about three hundred Guateinalians. We
opened on them with Uot and shell from
two six pounders and one twelve pounder how
itzer. After ten or fifteen minutes cannonad
ing, charged the church with fifty men, when
the enemy tied and our men took possesion.
Here ws found the bodies of twelve or four
teen of Capt. Green's Company, wbo had been
surprised and taken prisoners. They were
half consumed by fire, some or all of them
having been burnt alive. One of the men had
his legs entire'y burnt off, and his hands tied
behind him. He bad no wounds on his body,
proving that he must have been burnt alive.
We now moved ali our stores and artillery to
this church and fortified it. This place we
held until the siege was raised. We called it
On the 28th, at 12 o'clock, m,, an American
who had been taken prisoner by the enemy in
the attack on the wharf, appeared with a dag
of truce. He was brought inside the church,
where he presented to Gen. H. a letter signed
by the several Generals of the besieging force,
stating that Gen. Walker had been attacked
on the Transit Route and completely defeated;
that his army was entirely disbanded, and him
self a fugit've, and calling on him in the name
of humanity to surrender, and promising hon
orable treatment and a free passage out of tbe
country to all, both soldiers and citizens.
While the General was preparing his reply,
an adjutant of Gen. Zaralla, accompanied by
several other Guatemalian officers, all unarmed
and bearing flags of truce, approached. The
adjutant was met by the general and
Major Caycee outside the works, where he
stated that he had come to urge upon him the
acceptance of the terms offered.
Gen. H. told him he would send his reply in
writing, and very politely invited the officer to
walk into tbe cburcb, and view our fortinca
tions, men, etc, which he declined doing.
The general then read his reply to the whole
garrison, and wben be bad tinisbed, tbe walls,
of the old Guadaloupe church runs with three
hearty cheers for "Uncle Billy Walker and his
A Guatemalian prisoner was then liberated
and sent with the reply, which was to the
effect, that their communication was a lie from
first to last; tbat be was able to cut bis way
through the.r lines whenever he saw fit, and
that if they remained in the country three
ranntbs longer, be would bave tbem bung as

The enemy were now In possession of th
wharf 'and lort on the lake. At five p.m.
party waB snt toward tbe lake to drive in th
enemy's piquet and take possession of the post
which they occupied, it being the only defensi
ble point bttween tbe cburch and lake, and
about 259 yards distant from the latter. The
at'ack was entirely successful, and our men
remained in possession undisturbed until seven
p. m., wben tbey were attacked In front an
dank by a large force from the wharf. Gen
H. at once sent Col. Schwartz, with a twelve
pound howitzer and twenty-five men, to their
relief. After half an hour of sharp firing th
enemv retired, leaving a larre number of deai
on the field. Major Henry, vho was in com'
mand, at once commenced fortifying, and before
mormug had himself strongly entrenched. We
called this place Fort Henry. On the 29th, at
uiree r. m., tne enemy attempted a grand at
tack from the fort in front and the town in the
rear, upon both our strongholds, but the un
erring rifles dealt such death among them that
tuey retired alter about ntteen minutes bring.
At about eight o'clock p. m. they renewed the
attack upon tbe rear of the church with 500 or
uuu men. Here we bad a batterrv of one nin
pounder and three six pound guns. They were
allowed to advance close up to tbe breast'
works, when we opened on them with canister
our rilletnen at the same time doing fine her
vice. They could not stand the withering fire
and broke and ran, leaving the ground covered
with dead and wounded, and all that night the
air was uneu witu tne groans or the poor
wretches wbo were strewn over the whole
space for two hundred yards around.
From tbis time until tbe bin of December.
nothing of moment .occurred in the way of
fighting. The enemy kept u a constant firing
on us, ana occasionally wounding some one.
Uur men never returned tbe lire until certain
of their aim and distance, and when you
beard the sharp crack of our Miss ssippi rifles
you could feel quite certain mat one more
greaser" spirit bad winged its way to anoth
er world, un tbe 2u:a or jum ibe cholera
broke out among us. It was, l.o doubt, brought
on by the stench arising from tbe bodies of tbe
enemy which were in great numbers lying un
buried around the church. The medicines hal
ing been sent off on the steamers we could give
the sick but little relief, and we must have lost
from seventy to eighty by disease alone. On
the 29lh wc killed our first horse, and from
that time we lived entirely on the flesh of
horses and mules, and occasionally a lew green
I think it was on the 8th of December tbat
Gen. Daralla, the commander of the San Salva
dor forces, sent another letter to Gen. Henning'
sen, telling him that the allied forces had pos
session of the river and transit route, and asked
Gen. H. to come to his camp, pledging his
honor for his safe return, and stating tbat he
had the highest regard for him as a gallant sol
dier and a gentleman. Gen. H. sent him a ver
bal reply that he declined bis invitation ; and
that be bad no communication to uaite, ana
that he should be most happy to meet General
Zaralla, but it must be ia battle. At this time
we had but three days provisions, or, in other
words, but three horses.
On the morning of the 11th tbe steamer Vir
gin arrived before Granada, and a boat put off
from her and reconnoitered me snore, we
could see but few men on bond, ret every one

At 10 o'clock p. M..tbe steamer moved about
three miles above the town to the same point
where uen. walker landed when be first took
Granada, and at midnight Col. Jobn P. Wa
ters landed with one hundred and eighty men.
The enemy ciade an unsuccessful a tempt to
oppose their landing, and then retired to their
barricades, a lew buLdred yards distant. Col.
Waters advanced steadily until in sight of the
barricades, when the enemy opened a lively
fire. Our boys fired a volley, and then with a
rush and cheer mounted the barricades and
drove the astonished "greasers" at the point
of the bayonet. They rallied, however, at
their next barricade about half a mile distant,
but v aters auu ms gaiiant nine Danu pusbing

-THE LAST ACT OF THE DRAMA.
THE SUICIDE OF COSTLOW AND EXECUTION OF
From tbe X. O. Crescent, Jan. nth
Yesterday was the day appointed for the ex
ecution of James Costlow, for the murder of
policeman Jobn Dunn, and Patrick Kennedy,
for the murder of James Cruise. No further
respite having been granted by the Governor,
every preparation for the solemn act was made
on the preceding day, and both the young meu
composed themselves to meet their doom.
They prepared themselves differently, however.
uostiow, preferring deaib by bis own band to
the death ordered by law, secretly planned a
suicide, in which he but too well succeeded.
At 5 o'clock yesterday morning he released
himself from prison and from all earthly ills
by means of a dose of strychnine; how ob
tained, no one could tell. Kennedy, on the
contrary, under the sustaining influence of re
ligion, met the dread penalty of the law unfal
teringly. There was, of course, a great press at the
Sheriff's office for permits to enter the prison
and see the execution of Kennedy; but none
were permitted inside save officers of the law,
physicians, reporters, and some of the Sheriff's
The scaffold was the one generally used in
the Parish Prison a trap attached to a wall
by hinges, and by a rope passing into the cell
through the window, with two beams project
ing from the top cf the same, and a noose hang
ing from each beam one of them having been
intended for Costlow. The prisoners were all
shut up in their cells, but tbey could be seen
peering anxiously through the grating3.
At a little after 11 o'clock, Kennedy appear
ed on the upper gallery, clad in white, his hands
tied behind him, and the death-cap on his head.
He was accompanied by his spiritual adviser,
the Rev. Father Hubert, of tbe Jesuits church
on Baronne street. He walked firmly and com
posedly along the gallery, down tbe stairs, and
out on the Tittle side gallery leading to tbe
scaffold. There he made a respectful bow to
the spectators, and said: "May God bless you
all may G.hI bless you all that's all I've got
to say. God bless you all that's all I've got
The Priest then pressed a crucifix to his lips
and embraced him, after which he tookhis seat
on the fatal stool without betraying any emo
tion further than a solemn and sorrowful ex-
sber ff then reaJ Sto 'a 1
rant to him. He looked intently at the Deputy
during the reading, preserving his composed
demeanor all the time. After that, the Priest
prayed for him, and again pressed the crucifix
to his lips and embraced him. Tbe doomed
man commenced praying in a low voice, and
continued praying whilst tbe executioner, a tall
figure in a slouched hat, black mask and blue
domino, adjusted the noose about his neck and
the white cap over his face. The last, solemn
service of the church was then read; the trap
fell, and Patrick .Kennedy was launched into
eternity, nedied witii apparent ease: drawing

cians, he was let down into his coffin, decently

A large and miscellaneous crowd of people
were assembled in the street, in front of the
prison, long before and after the execution,
piercing the stone with their imaginations if
not their eyes. A cordon of policemen waj
drawn along in front of the prison, to keep the
multitude from besieging the doors and gates.
Long after it was known outside that the exe
cution had taken place, a portion of the crowd
The execution over, the Coroner empanneled
a jury of inquest, to pronounce upon the al
leged suicide of Costlow. The deceased was
stretched out on the mattress in his cell, his
rigid appearance and down-pointing feet beto
king that he had died a spasmodic death. A
post-mortem examination was held by Doctors
Sabatier, Delery, and several other medical
gentlemen. The stbmach bore evidences of
strychnine, and a few sprinkles of that poison
were found on the floor of the cell. But one
witness was examined, Mr. Begenaki,the turn
key. Phis officer testified that be had not the re
motest idea of the manner in which Costlow
obtained and secreted the deadly drug he had
used. On the evening before, in view of the
fact that he had once attempted suicide, and of
the common report, outside tbe prison as well
as inside, that he wonld never die by hanging,
a thorough search was made for such articles
as might be made instrumental in causing death.
Costlow was taken out of his cell, stripped
naked, and every seam of his clothing examin
ed in the presence of Capt. Baldwin, the turn
key, and two other officers. In his pocket was
found a lancet the same which he once secre
ted in his drawers with suicidal intent. More
than this, nothing was found. He submitted
to the search with perfect coolness and good
humor. Kennedy was searched in the same
manner; not because it was feared he would
commit suicide, but in order to flatter Costlow
with the appearance of impartiality. Before
Costlow was returned to his cell, his bed and
every other moveable was taken out. and a
fresh matlreBS and blankets belonging to the
prison placed there instead.

about 22 years of age. He was a light-haired,

Mr. Benjamin reported that at fhe last ses

Commerce to provide for such defects. The
Committee being unable to agree on the subject,
no report was then made. The proposition in

rious obstructions in those rivers by contract ;
but the Committee found no great difficulties in
such a system, and accordingly reported that

which he would ask at an early day. The bill
proposes to have the Western river divided
into convenient sections, and then advertise by
contracts for the removal of all obstructions to

tbat sum the Committee have ascertained that
contracts could certainly be made by which all
these Western rivers could be kept entirely
clear of tbese obstructions, at present so de

The Iron Masters A True Kevenue Tariff.
We have been assured by an eminent iron
manufacturer that neither he nor his brethren
have any desire that their interests should be
specially favored by the tariff. They would
not like the duties which are levied on other
commodities withdrawn from iron, but thev
are quite willing to submit to any reduction of
iue uuues on imported iron wbtcb it shall bi
judged proper to make on other imported mer
chandise. Let an honest revenue tariff be
made, and they are willing to bear their share
in the abatement of indirect taxation to which
it leads. Formerly thev were Drotectinnists
but the improvements in tbe manufacture of
iron, and the general use of the metal in
thousand new ways, have since made them in
different to protection, and they only ask to be
put on an equal footing with those wbo follow
tne other great branches of manufacturing in
We hope there is no mistake in this, and that
the idea of protection is as generally renounced
by the ircn masters as is represented. If it be
so, it does credit to their understanding and to
their sense of justice to their understanding,
as enabling them to perceive that they do not
want a protective tariff, which we have long
maintained to be the case; and to their sense
of justice, as willing to be put on an equality
with those who pursue other avocations. The
truth is, that the irou interest has of late years
stood more in the way of any plan for liberal
izing the tariff than any other in the country.
Most of the great iron mills are situated m
the State of Pennsylvania, and Pennsylvania
is a large State, which gives twenty-seven votes
in the election of President ; it is, moreover, a
State which in politics is sometimes found on
one side and sometimes on tbe other, and a
powerful interest like that of the iron masters,
acting in concert, is sufficient to chanze the
majority from one political partv to the other.
For this reason tbe politicians', both of the
South and the North, have always shown a dis
position to handle the iron interest tenderly.
They have not allowed themselves to forget
that it was not quite safe to offend Pennsylva
nia, and when they cut down the duties on im
ported cottons to twenty per cent., they judi
ciously, as they thought, put the duties on iron
But, if what we now hear be true, there is no
occasion for any hesitancy on this point. The
iron interest, which was the great bulwark of
protection, has surrendered, and there is noth
ing now in the way of making a purely revenue
tariff. The woollen manufacturers, who were
once zealous advocates of protection, have re
nounced the principle also ; they say, "give us
only the raw material duty free, and we will
join you in putting a purely revenue duty on
imported woollen fabrics. The duty on cot
tons was reduced in 18-J6 to the revenue stand
ard, or wha: vas then supposed to be such, and
an immensely large and powerful class of mill
owners detached from the cause of protec
tion. What, then, prevents Congress from taking
up the subject, and giving us what may be
properly called a tariff for revenue? Why
should Mr. Campbell, in the bill be reported
the other day, leave tie duty on iron at thirty
per cent., wben the iron masters themselves no
longer look to the Government for protection,
and are satisfied with a simple revenue dutvl-'

views of the iron masters and we wonder not
