fc$TThe Savannah News says: "The New

the mysterious order with "increasing repug

championship of Sam, and was unstinted in its

having beaten the Know Nothings and savod
the Democratic party. The editor thinks the
result of the Virginia election will give cour
age to the Democratic party everywhere, and
that with a reunion of the party in NewYork,
it can succeed in electing the next President,
for which office he nominates Mr. Wise. That
gentleman has outlived the enmity of the
Herald, and it is to be hoped that he may

"SAG N1CHT" ANOTHER SECRET
We find In the Mobile Advertiser, the fol
lowing account of the progress, purposes and
principles of the "Sag A'icnf," or Say Noth
ing society; a new secret political order,
which is said to be spreading through the
west and south west, and whose triumphs
are claimed as democratic victories. We con
fess our ignorance of the principles of the
order, and therefore give the article for w hat
it ia worth; remarking, that if the sketch of
the Advertiser be true, and from the deserv
edly high character of that journal, we have
no reason to doubt it, 'the denunciations
against secret political organizations come
with decidedly bad grace from theHoi7smm,'
Who sustain the present administration.
Thu Advertiser says: The Sag Nichl nsso
ciation first appeared in the State of Ohio,
where it Is now very strong, and from thence
it has spread over the west and a portion of
the South. So far ns development have been
made, its directing, influential agencies are
leading democrats and office holders under
the present administration. We have before
us some rich excerpts from Ohio papers,
showing the method of propagating the new
society in the Buckeye Siute. From one of
these it appears that Mr. G. W, Johns, an
appointee of Gen. Pierce, and two prominent
democrats, Messrs. Hall and Jackson, at

due notice when to expect me.
Mr. Johns, however, soon discovers his
oversight, and despatches after his letter tho
' Ashland, Feb. 18, 1855.
Editor Bucyrus Journal Sir; It is only
necessary to say that it (the letter) was mis
directed, and will, iu all probability, fall into
your hands. As the contents are strictly of
a private nature, I trust that if you get this

The Editor of the Bucyrus Journal deter
mined to probe the matter, and ascertain who
this G. W. Johns was, and what was his bu
siness. So he visited Mansfield and Ashland,
and ascertained that he was, at the aforesaid
time a clerk in the employ of the Adminis
tration at Washington, but engaged just then
in the business of organizing Sag Nicht
The above, which we have met with in
several journals of the West, indicates pretty
clearly the part the Administration has been
playing in the organization of the Sag Nichts,
but the results of the organization show, be
yond question, Its sympathy with them. At
the recent elections iu Ohio particularly in
that at Cincinnati, which resulted in the de
feat of the Know Nothings, nnd was loudly
rejoiced over by the Washington Union and
the anti-American papers generally the chief
opposition to the American party came from
the Sag Nichts, whose society is said now to
include in its membership the greater part of
the voters in that State not connected or
sympathizing with the Know Nothings.
I hey claim to number 1 15 lodges, and have a
complete system of masonic signs nnd pass
words. They comprise a large majority, of
Freesoil Democrats, who refuse to associate
or act with Ihe American party, because the
latter are national, while they ure sectional.
These Sag Nichts recently held a convention
in Columbus, lor the purpose of nominating
candidates for the State election in October,
when they discarded Governor. Medill and
other prominent democrats, and nominated the
notorious abolitionist Sainton P. Chase, late
United States Senator, as Governor.
The Cleveland Express, from which paper
the information respecting the Convention U
derived, uvers that this movement, in throw
ing overboard a purt of the ticket nominated
by the Deinoerutiu Convention last January,
before the Sag Nichts were thoroughly or
ganized, was not only understood, but was
projucted by the Administration ns a forlorn
hope to save il from utter rout in Ohio.
The Columbus Suite Journal publishes a
lengthy account of the proceedings or the
Convention, froni wjiich we extruct as fol
lows: After the opening ceremonies were gone
through with iu the usual form, Gen. Wilson
submitted his report. . Hetnted that he had
ucceeded iu organizing 115 lodge, and had

of the great facilities thnt had been furnished

the way of free tickets and liberal contribu
tions': snd complimented particularly the U,
S. marshals and thoir deputies for their ex
ertions in the cause. The report closed with
fierce denunciations of the Know Nothings,
and recommended renewed efforts for their
But, as we have said, the Sag Nichts nro
not confined to Ohio, ihey are found nil
over the West, nre considerably strong in
Kentucky. Missouri, and perhaps in Tennes
see, nnd the effort is doubtless making to ex
tend the organization through all the States,
with the hope of swallowing up the entire
opposition to the Know Nothings with the
intention of havinir but two parties in the
held in 1856. In the West, the Democratic
papers openly espouse the society, and the
Louisville Democrat boasts of having two
thousand members of it in that c'ty alone.
And here it is perhaps well enough to remark,
that the riotous prc-eedings at the recent
election In Louisville, about which we have
heard so much, grew out of the hostile atti
tude and unwise boats and threats of the Sag
Nichts themselves, though they got worsted

A Terrible Hail Storm in South Caro
lina. The annexed account of a hail storm
which visited Pickens District on Friday the
18th inst,, exceeds everything of the kind we
have read or heard of. Hail stones 10 inches
in circumference nnd four inches in length,
lying upon the ground six feet deep.
The severest hail storm that ever visited
this section of country, passed down the east
side of Keowee river in the afternoon of Fri
day the 18th inst. It extended about two
mile iu width, nnd raped with great fury,
killing hogs, fish, birds, fowls, and insects;
maiming and bruising thecattle, nnd stripping
vegetation of every ves'.ige above ground.
The irrowing crops, with the exception of
corn, is completely ruined. R. Stewart, Esq ,
informs us that ou the third day after its fall,
the hail was from one to two feet deep, and,
in many places six feet The average depth
on a level, after the storm, was four inches.
We nre informed by several persons that the
laigest hail stones measured ten inches in
circumference, and others four inches in
length. It fell with such force that the boards
on several houses were split to pieces, and
that now the stench arising from the decaying
vegetable muttor is very offensive.

Shameful Conduct of the Washington
Crrr Know Nothings. The Washington
Union of Sunday morning says: A mass
meeting of the democratic citizens of Wash
ington was announced to be held In front of
Brown's Hotel at nine o'clock last evening,
with the view of exchanging congratulations
on the result of the recent gubernatorial
election in Virginia. Long before the hour
named a large concourse of peeple assembled
on the avenue extending from Sixth street
nearly to Seventh street It was soon made
manifest to the most careless observer that an
organized attempt would be made to destroy
the harmony of the meeting, and tojieap in
sult, if not commit violence, upon all who
would attempt to give utterance to tho heart
felt expressions of honest exultation. The
meeting was not lung left in doubt in regard
to the intentions or the principles of their
know nothing opponents. A loud and en thu
siastic call for Mr. Wise soon brought that
distinguished champion of civil and religious
freedom, (o the balcony in front of the hotel.
He commenced spvsking, but his voice was
literally drowned by the rude nnd disgraceful
interruptions of the miserably deluded follow
ers of "Sam." Finding that he could not be
heard, -he nud his friends showed a degree of
forbearance becoming men . fresh from the
field of battle and flushed with victory. They
left the disappointed admirers and backers of

Another Outrage in Kansas. Lynch
Lavo. The Rochester Democrat ha the fol
lowing aCCotlntof anothet outrage in Kansas:
On the 17th inst, Mr. Phillips, a lawyer,
was decoyed to the bank of the -Missouri
riveri where he wns suddenly seized and
forced into a akift, and carried across the river
into Missouri thence he was taken seven
miles to Weston.
An old warehouse stinds just below the
town; he was lltken there, his head- Was
shaved, his face blaeked, he was tarred and
!ea.hercd,and then ridden upon a rail through
tlm streets of Weston, while music horrible
and hideous accompanied the procession.
Before the hotel they exhibited him; and
then a negro wns compelled to sell him to the
lowest bidder, nnd they offered to him every
insult in their cower. '
After detaining him several hours in this
manner, repeatedly telling him - that if he
would not leave the territory, or give them
his promise in writing that he would lenve,
they would hang him. He having steadily
and firmly refused, they let him looser His
brother, who had come .from Leavenworth
after him, took him into a carriage, and late
in the afternoon started for Leavenworth.
It seems that the offence of Mn Phillips is
that he is a free aoiler. And it is pnttended
by the pro-slavery men that he handed McCrea
the revolver with which Malcom Clark was
killed. This is probably false, as responsible
men declare that Phillips did not at all inter
fere iu the matter.

The latter succeeded in passing between the
divisions, which forced Santa Anna to retire
on Morillo, where he was with the third of

the communication was thus cut off with the
