" The letter from Mr. Ewing, in our paper

in this District, will not surprise his friends in
this county, who knew that he had positively
aesared all who bad conversed with him on the
subject that it would be impossible for him to
accept. His reasons were unanswerable and
conclusive. Yet universal regret will be felt
throughout the State at the necessity which
compels this decleniion. .

rows of labUs extended the entire distance,
loaded with the good things of life, for which
the exercises of the day contributed excellent
appetites. It is supposed that not less than
ten thousand persons participated in the dinner,
and all without the slightest disagreement or
disturbance. To give some idea of the liberal
and large hearted hospitalities of the people of
Memphis, vz would particularize some of the
articles provided pn this occasion, viz ; 8,000

In the afternoon, a ball was given in a large
store room in the Yard, at which many of our
members were present, in tne evenir.g, there
were fireworks and illuminations, and at a later
hour a grand ball at the bxchange Buildings
presented a dazzling array or beauty and fash
ion, the enjoyment of which was participated
in by several or our memoers.
On Saturday morning roll was called at 8
o'clock, and v marched to the Hall of the In
dependent Fire Company fto. 1, where "Old
Betsey" had been provided with tocjfprtable
quarters, and manning the ropes, we fell In'o
the line of precession or me visiting and test

a bait In the procession, a very cne ambrotrpe
reDresentation of cur engine and company was
taken by Mr. H. C. Park, an artist of 6mlrjenfce
in bis profession, which is in our possession.
Accompanied by the vast crowd of firemen and
citizens, the Pbceaix then proceeded tothe
banks of tbo river to perform her part in the
Important ceremony of the day, the nuptials of
the Atlantic and; the Mississippi. Our engine ,
waa placed rnldwaybeiween'tbe bluffs and the
river, the Hogsheads of water from the Atlantic
alongside. 'The hose was led down to the wa
ter's edge, the pipe in the hands of Fourth DI-.
rectoj-.Whifeiarid Foreman Holmes. The mem
bers of 'the Phoenix, not oh duty at the brakes,
preceded by their acting President, and Hon.
W. W. Boyce.a native of Charleston, who bad
been selected as our orator, marched down on
one side of the -hose, and the Mayors of Mem
phis and Charleston, followed by the ciyic del
egations, on the other. Hon. A. II. Douglass,
the Mayor of Memphis, in very beautiful and
appropriate Janguae, alluded to the important
ceremony about to be performed, Its advantages
and its responsibilities to which the Hon.
Wm. Porch er Miles, the Mayor of Charleston,
responded in some very graceful and happy re
marks. Mr. Johnson, the acting President of
the, Phmnix, then introduced Hon. W. W.
Boyce, who, on behalf of our company, deliv
ered a most eloquent speech, exciting to the
highest enthusiasm all within the sound of bis
voice. At its conclusion, Mr. Douglass, the
Mayor of Memphis, placed a ring on Mr.
Miles's finger, saying: ' What this great peo-
Sle hath joined together, let nothing put asun
er." The members of the Phcenix at the brakes
were then ordered to "giva way," and soon the
pellucid watcrof the Atlantic rose from our
pipe, like a jet from a fountain, highJqto mid
air, and fell'ln 'sparHinc drops, a shower .5f
diamond?, into the bosom of the tdrtrid and ma-
L-festic .Mississippi, amid the deafening shouts of
toe assembled multitude.
The scene at this moment was intensely ex
citing and impressive, au around upon tne
bdliks waa a dense mass of human beings,
whose eager faces manifested the deep Interest
they felt in the proceedings ; in front the. mys
terious and majestic River, whose current, fed
by a thousand tributaries, was moving silently
but resistlessly onward, lighted up by the bril
liant sunbeams, as if joyously conscious of the
new dowry of wealth and affection conferred
upon him ; on either hand were leviathan
steamers, their numerous decks crowded by
eager and absorbed spectators ; while in the
rear, high up upon the Bluffs, the throngs of
ladies waving their handkerchiefs, their forms
showing in beautiful outline against the clear
blue sky, left little to the imagination in sup
posing theiA the dwellers of a brighter sphere,
smiling benignantly on the the consummation ot
a glorious work
The "cerempny being completed, we moved off
with our engine, accompanied by our fast

the strongest indignation. The negro men had
been brought into court pending the trial until
yesterday afternood, when one by one they
were taken out of the court room and safely,
as it was supposed, quirtered in jail.
Soon after the verdict of acquittal was
made known, an excited multitude gathered
about the jail and avowed a determination to
take out the negroes and bang them. Mayor
Piicber harangued the crowd and summoned
the police, and for a brief space the gathering
storm was lulled. It had only ceased for a
moment to gatherhead, and soon it was evident
that a well organized and preconcerted move
ment was'bn foot A number of men rushed
to the steam engine Douse on Sixth street, al
most adjoining the jail, burst the door and
took possession of the brass cannon and the
muskets of the arsenal.
The cannon was quickly loaded, and charged
with pieces of ironj and bowlders, and dragged
in front of the jail'door. Here, an indescriba
ble scene of uproarjand confusion ensued. .The
mob were yelling that they would tear down
the jail, unless the negroes were given up to
them. The ;Mayer made a futile effort to
check them, and ordered the police to arrest
one of the ringleader a. The rrnwd mpnaH

was inrown, Mayor I'Ucner being knocked
down the fi one, a brick bat striking him full
in the face, smashing his nose.
Several Bhots were fired ia rapid succession,
from both Bides, but chiefly by the members of
the police, a Spartan band of only tenor twelve
men to resist a mob of as many thousand. The
fences, front walls, doors, and windows of the
jail were quickly demolished, and the entire
destruction of the building was threatened by
the party having charge of the cannon. One
of the watchmen. Jack Weatherford. had a
finger shot off; tbe jailor and his deputy were'4
uauiji uluiscu, xuiei xvu kpaincit was repeat
edly hit with stones and bricks, but fortunately
escaped without losing life or limb, and one or
two or me crowd were slightly wounded.
A parley was demanded oa the Dart of the
jailor and his assistants, who by this time be-.
came ruuy aware or the terrible determination
of the people. As far as the eye could reach
from, the jail door the street was crowded by
the excited masses, who were determined to
execute swift justice upon the murderers. The
authorities succumbed to the demands of the
crowd, and Mr. Thomas, the jailor, notified
them that he would surrender the victims. The
Chief of Police went out iff the crowd, reached
the gun, and succeeded in placing his hand over
the touch-hole. - c- .
The inner door of the jail was thrown pen
and the four negroes led out between the small
body of police that had been stationed in the
jail. At the sight of their victims, a horrid
yell was sent up from ten thousand braken
throats, but before ths Infuriated populace
could lay hands on him, Jack, a yellow man,
the property of Hiram SamuelB, drew a razor
and cut bis own throat. The deed was com
mitted with all the energy of despair, inflicting
a terrible gash, cutting his throat from ear to
ear, and nearly severing the head from the
Ice other three negroes were seized by the
mob and quickly taken to the court-house yard,
where ropes were as quickly furnished, and
soon two of them were hansincr to trees, one at
the West end and the other at the East end of
the court house. The first poor wretch strug
gled desperately for bis life, and for at least
ten minutes after he. was swung off he was
heard calling to his God in mortal terror. The
knot in the noose did not slip, and in a half
choked condition he was suffered to remain un
til it was adjusted. He was then cut down.
and the third was hung to the same tree and
died without a struggle.
The negro man, who so summarily took his
own life by cutting bis throat, was left welter

in the court bouse yard up to a very late hour,

kindled, and it was suggested -that they should
be burnt, and the torch was actually applied to
two of the inanimate bodies, butninrr most of
their clothes off. The city authorities appear
ed to be perfectly paralyzed In thought and ac
tion, and about 11 o'clock last nicht a terrible
palor overspread the city, and apparent order
and quiet seemed to assume sway, and the pop
ulace retired to their homes apparently satis
isfied with the retributive justice ao Bummarllw
dealt to the murderers.
Af Urgiving the particulars, which do not
vary muc& from tbe foregoing account, the
Democrat, of the same date, says :
"These are the circumstances as nearlr as
we could learn. It was another damning out
