THE BOSTON EXCITEMENT.
Maco.v. Ga., Nov. 14th, 1850.
tut. . v.i;inr As many incorrect and contradic-
torv reDorU are in circulation in regard to the visit of
Mr Willis H. Hughes to Boston, lor the purpose ol
recapturinff William and Ellen Craft the negroes be
lonrior to Dr. Collins and Ira Taylor, I beg you to
trive place to the subjoined simple narrative ot tacia.
It ia criven from recollection ; but 1 am willing to make
-ffi.i.lir iia rnrrectness. Of course, it does not
contain a statement of everything which transpired ;
but it does contain everything wuicn is at ail lmpor
The statement which have been copied in this city,
,nA in th South ffenerally, by a certain class of pa-
ar Lken from the Boston Chronulype, and other
abolition prints, and are gross misrepresentations of
facts and entirely unwonny oi any connuence.
W left Macon for the purpose of purchasing ma
rhinnrv for the establishment ot a Bucket Factory and
Variety Works in this city. I did not even know that
Mr. Hughes was entrusted with the recovery of the
slaves, until after we arrived at New York, whtn he
asked ine to identify the negroes.
VV left Maeon Friday. Oct. 11th, arrived in N. Y.
Tuesday followins. Remained there till Friday,
P. M., and arrived at Boston next morning. Kept
still on Saturday and Sunday.
On Monday. 1 attended to buyin? machinery. Mr.
Hughes applied to Judge Woodbury for a warrant
Tue Judge would not issue it; said it was the busi
ness of the commissioners.
Mr. Hughes applied to three separate cominission-
. V . .1 'PL.
ers who sent nliu irotn one iu uuomei. x no iaoi uiib
refused until he could get all the commissioners and
In this way the matter was deferred until Thursday
niWit, when the meeting of Commissioners was held.
At this meeting our business and the names of the
parties for whom the warrant was demanded leaked
I went to see Craft on Tuesday ; had a long conver
sation with him. He said that Ellen was anxious to
return South, and woutd do so if she could get funds
and an opportunity desired me to bring Ellen's
mother. 1 agreed to go back next morning to get the
letter, il I did not go to Worcester.
Wednesday Went to Worcester and retnrned ;
found the letter at the Hotel.
Tliurtdny laomitig Saw Craft. He told me that
Ellen had been to see meat his shop on Wednesday.
1 wrote no letter to Craft. The one published was a
forgery. The day the letter purports to have been
written I was in, Worcester.
Friday morning Judge Woodbury issued the war
rant about 9 o'clock in open court.
it was at once known, and the negroes and aboli
tionists began to assemble about the Courthouse and
watch us. Every few minutes, a negro lawyer would
peep into the Marshal's Office to see what was going
on warrant placed in Marshal's hands immediately.
The excitement became great nothing was done
Marshal said if he could be convinced that Craft was
in Cambridge street, he would go and arrest him
seemed timid and inclined to back out.
Saturday Were both arrested for slander ; for call
ing Craft a slave were taken to deputy sheriffs
Bugg's office obtained bail for $10,000 each at once,
from Messrs. Riley & Freeman and Thayer & Co.
No great excitement.
Afternoon Negroes in large numbers around the
U. S. Hotel 1 changed my hat mixed among them,
and talked with them. They said there were kid
nappers from the South in town that Knight was in
jail, and they were after Hughes.
Sunday Went to Charlestown, and about the city
all day no signs of any disturbance.
Monday We were again arrested, on a charge of
attempting to kidnap C rati and wife carried to Court
square, to deputy Corbin's office 2000 persons pres
ent. 1500 negroes and 500 whites of the lowest or
der. Gave bonds in $10,000 each, signed by Messrs.
Riley, Willis and others, I believe crowd in the
office very great ; officer sent for carriage left office
to get into it. Mr. Hughes got in. The crowd
rushed upon it, so -that 1 could not reach it they
hissed us, called ns b!ood-hounds,&c., apparently for
the purpose of exciting ns to some act of violence
some of them seized upon the horses and attempted
to open the doors Mr. Hughes, who was in the car
riage, laughed at them.
The driver was not instructed where to go, and be
ing greatly alarmed, left for Cambridge. When he
reached the bridge, Mr. Hughes knew where he was,
and ordered him to carry him back to the Hotel. The
driver turned, but meeting the crowd refused to go
turther. Mr. Hughes then left the carriage and pro
cured a buggy and driver and returned to the Hotel
some of the negroes came up to him. He ordered
them to keep off. They said they did not wish to
hurt him; but "only to Jet people know that he was
a slave hunter.
I remained in the office half an hour, and left in a
cab the mob hissing and pulling my coat, calling me
slave hunter, bloodhound, &C, but I was resolved to
reseat oo insult, as that was plainly what they wanted
me to do. One negro followed to the Hotel but did
not come near me. .
Monday afternoon- Great crowd at Hotel negroes
vuisiae w bites came into the parlors ana passages.
At5 o'clock other warrants were .is8ue4 against us
for slandering Ellen Oraft. and ininrinor her business !
Gave bond each for $20,000 at the Hotel, Messrs, Rt
Thayer & Co., Willis and others signing for us.

perfect contempt would leave when the mob dis
persed and our convenience suited, but not before.
Uunng tne day passed freely about the city all
was quiet. In evening came to New York, by advice
of counsel, in order to get further instructions, and to
allow the excitement to die away. Dunns this time
Craft and. wife were reported to us to be locked up in
tne bouse or a white man, whose name l tor?ec
from all 1 saw and heard, and experienced while
tn Boston 1 am convinced that public opinion there,
in regard to the Fugitive Slave Law, is undergoing
a change. It is true the abolitionists and negroes are
very numerous, and apparently have things very much
their own way at present. 1 he business men and
men of property, with whom I conversed, generally
took but little interest, in the matter, but said that the
law ought to be executed that they wished to get
rid of the negroes, and that, if it came to a trial of
strength, the negroes and abolitionists would be pu
down, this, however, will take time.
I believe (hat Mr. Hughes will ultimately succeed
in setting the negroes. My only jegret is that my
own private business compelled me to return home
before seeing nim out. Had 1 leisure and means to
spaie, I should return with pleasure, even at the risk
of gratifying certain gentlemen of Macon by rotting in
a Boston tail.
1 need scarcely say, thatl am influenced in giving
this statement by no party feeling. H v own conver
sations with different parties, have been misconstrued
and misrepresented. I desire simply to do justice to
myselt, and to Mr. Hughes in his absence, ny placing
the facts before a candid public.

LETTER FROM MR. DALLAS.
The Hon. George M. Dallas has addressed the
following letter to the Committee of Arrangements
for the great Union meeting which is to take place at
Philadelphia on Thursday next.
IN OVEMBER 14, 103U.
Gentlemen : I have iust received your note, dated
the 11th instant, conveying the information that Vou
have selected me to fill the office of one of- the vice
presidents at the Union meeting on Thursday. Al
though much honored by your choice, it will not be
in mv Dower to attend to its duties, and I must there
fore ben- vou to substitute some ether gentleman.

J . . . " wr i-i r
mental m saving tne union ana iuhuhuu uui
actual and augmenting peril, I throw myself upon
vonr indulgence while venturing to introduce upon
vnn mv anxiona conviction as to the only tone which
can, for the great purpose designed, be usefully given
to the proposed meeting. As we are all actuated by
the same patriotism, 1 persuade myself to believe that
you will pardon, it you should noi approve, my ug-
rrABtinna. lit thfi measures oi aoiusimeniauuuwu uj
Congress, one only can be affected by future legisla
tion Thn nthp.rs am hevond the reach of recall or
mruUKnatinn. California is a State : the boundary oi
Texas is fixed by her own assent; New Mexico and
Utah have territorial srovernments upon me u&mu
nrincinles and forms. These things are done con
clusively and unalterably ddne. No sort of agnation
can undo them : and the perception of this practical
truth will. I feel assured, prevent tbeir continuing
subjects of agitation, either seriously or long. Not
so with the Fugitive Slave Bill. 1 hat nas aireaoy
hoon throatenpH with rfineal i that is. therefore, the
point of danger. Now, in the existing condition oi
oublic. feelintr. North and South, mere generalities in
favor of the Union will produce little or no effect.
To speak impressively, it is absolutely necessary
n ha anooififl ftnrlnnn.i toDic connected witn tne
constitution and the rescue of the Union, can specifi
cation be equally beneficial as on the r ugitiye Slave
Bill. W ill you, then, excuse me ior inuu,aung uiai,
having exclusively in view the preservation of the
Union and Constitution, the obvious if not the only
direct and effective course is to proclaim the Fogitive
Slave Law to be constitutional, just and expedient; to
call upon our fellow-citizens to obey it as a necessa
ry part of the constitutional guaranty wnicn we are
all bound to fulfil in good faith 1 Nor is this enough
for us of Pennsylvania to do. More will naturally
be expected. We have, unguardedly heretofore, lent
a hand to impair the true spirit and meaning of the
federal compact by legislating adversely to the con
stitutional right of pursuing fugitives from labor.
That legislation has tended to bring into question
our fidelity to the nxed guaranty oi me union, uuu
haa in soma decree, encouraged those who would
cheerfully trample down or break through the Con
stitution and rend tne union, n ny so aomg mey
can put an end to southern slavery. Are we not then
bound, when we see the Union in jeopardy, and when
we assemble to do what we can to save it, to lnvone
th leorialature to retrace its BteDS. to repeal all the
acts inconsistent with the integrity and harmony of
the Union, and especially) repeal tnose jaws wnicn
inflict penalties on such of our magistracy as shall
aid in sustaining-our federal faith, ant which deny
the ose of our prisons to citizens engaged in execut
ing the Federal Laws? Can we stand absolved
from reproach, if, at this alarming juncture, and with
ardent professions of patriotism, we pause half-way
in the path of candid inculcation, and fail to do what
I have thus hastily and crudely indicated T Really,
I think not. The country the only country we
have or ever can have is at stake; and, if we move
at all to save it, let our movement be frank, fearless,
and effective. . '
Renewing my apology' for addressing you thus
freely, I am, sincerely and most respectfully, gentle
men, your most obedient servant,

had deemed it unnecessary recently to advertise his
business, as he was so well known throughout the State;
but for fear his old friends and customers might be under
the impression that he was carried away by the great
"tornado" which passed Northwards a few days ago,
he has thought it best to inform them that e is still in
business and hopes they will give him a rail... He
would say to his old friends and customers that the lib

has cemented him still more closely to the good old
State of North Carolina; and he trusts that their patron
age will continue to be bestowed on one who feels he
kindly appreciates it; and for his part there shall be
nothing lacking to give entire satisfaction.' He might
say more, but it is sufficient for him to say "that he has
