Union Movement in N. Y.
An independent Union movement was inau
gurated at New York on Monday week. It is
proposed to throw overboard the existing Bell,
Douglas and Breckinridge electoral tickets in
that State, and to select an entirely new ticket,
pledged only to opposition to the Republican
A meeting will be held at Mint Spring on Sat

speeches may be expected. We hope tbe meet

neighborhood. The Democrats of both wings
are invited to be present. Drive on the good
Union "team" and keep tbe "bells" a-gingling.
Col. John B. Baldwin.
We announced in our last issue that Col. Bald
win would address the Bell and Everett Club of
this place on Wednesday night next. We are
sorry that he will not be able to be here at that
time, as he will then be on his way to Alexan
dria to fill appointments abroad. He will ad
dress the Club in a week or two, due notice of
which will be given.
Meetings this Week.
Bell and Everett meetings will be held this
week, and speeches may be expected, at the fol
lowing places—viz : at West View on Friday
at 7 o'clock, P. M.; at Craigsville on some day

and Middlebrook, on Saturday at 2 o'clock, P.

Barterbrook at 7 o'clock.
Let there be a good turn-out at each place.—
Keep the Bells a ringing!
Col. Baldwin in Rockingham.
If our friends in Rockingham will make the
proper provifiou to get 001. Baldwin from Har
risonburg to tbeir places of meeting, he will ad
dress them at night and attend court during the
day, during tbe session of the October Court.—
They can appoint meetings in different neighbor
hoods so as not to confliot, then send to Har
risonburg witb a horse or buggy and he will go
and address them at night. We hope they will
not let this opportunity to get several speeches
from him pass by without availing themselves
There are yet some neighborhoods in the coun
ty where Bell Clubs ought to be, and must be or
ganized. Oar mass meeting comes off soon, and
every Club is expected to come into Staunton in
its own procession, with its "own Marshals and
banners and bells." The Clubs should be organ
ized this week, in order to make proper arrange
ments. Let the Committee now appointed by
the Central County Committee see to it at once,
that a Club be organized at his place without
farther delay ; it only needs that some one
shall make a start: the people are ready.
Meetings of Clubs.
If all the clubs of the county meet on Satur
day, it will be impossible for speakers to be
present at all tbe meetings. As far as possible
let the clubs select different days—or nights, as
the moon is now "shining silver bright," and
that "same old coon" is sitting as "high on a
limb" as ever. The meetings will thus be larger
also, as persons from neighborings clubs can all
meet together; it is discouraging to speakers to
ride several miles and meet only a dozen hearers.
The larger tbe meetings the greater the enthu
siasm. Monday, Tuesday and Thursday nights
are as yet unappropriated by any club.
GRAND RALLY I
Remember that there will be a Grand Rally
of the friends of Bell and Everett, the Constitu
tion and the Union, in Stauuton, on the 10th
day of October. We expect to be enabled to
announce in tbe next issue the names of the dis
tinguished speakers who will certainly be here.
In the meantime let all tbose who are friendly
to # the election of the Union ticket remember that
it is expected tbat they will unite with the clubs
in their respective neighborhoods, and come into
town in order of procession. What neighbor
hood will furnish the largest procession on this
occasion? It is hoped tbtt our Union friends
will bring a supply of eatables, as there will be
a grand pic nic to gratify the cravings of the
inner man after the enjoyment of the "feast of
reason, and the flow of soul."
News From Italy.
By the arrival of the Halifax steamer, we learn
that the King fled from Naples on tbe 6th inst.,
and Garibaldi was expected to arrive there on
-the next day. Long before this Naples is free
from tbe Bourbon tyranny and has probably
become a part of the United Kingdom of Italy.
The fugitive King had accepted an invitation
from the Queen of Spain to seek an asylum in
that country. Insurrectionary movements had
also occurred in tbe Papal territory, and the
Pope had been notified that if the Papal troops J
crossed the frontier, Sardinia would immediately j
occupy the Roman Marches. Fine harvest!]
weather prevailed in Great Britain, and bread- 1
stufis continued to decline. 1 1
Proceedings in Harrisonburg.
On yesterday week, being the first day of the
County Court of Rockingham, there was a polit- i
ical discussion in Harrisonburg between the i
Douglas and Breckiniidge wings of the "harmo
nious Democracy." The claims of the Douglas
ticket were advocated by Mr. Gallagher, of Bal
timore city, and Col. A. M. Barbour, of Harper's
Ferry, and those of the Breckinridge ticket by
Ex-Gov. "Superfluous William," vulgarly de
nominated "Extra Billy." All who were present
concur in representing the proceedings as pre
senting a scene which beggars description. The
confusion of Babel and the madness of Bedlam,
suggest ideas of order and decorum, sanity and
silence, when compared with tbe proceedings of
the loving and "harmonious Democracy," on
that occasion. Even the very classical simile of
ten thousand tom-cats in a garret, yowing, cat
erwauling, spitting and scratching, fails to sug
gest such a beautiful scene of concord and har
mony, kindness and brotherly feeling a*»was ex
hibited at Harrisonburg during that friendly
discussion between brother Democrats. It would
seem that in anticipation ot their reward they
were practicing a rehearsal of the parts they ex
pect to perform in Pandemonium.
The "Rockingham Register," in speaking of
the "doings" on that occasion, says :
"We have lived in Rockingham county for a
number of years, and we have been abroad ; we
have seen some strange things at home, and
great things away from home, but we confess
tbat Monday last, taking all things together,
was the greatest day we ever saw. We have
read in the Bible of the day of judgment, and
we have heard preachers discourse upon "the
dreadful day for which all other days were
made;" but if it beats Monday last, we shall be
nervous then assure as a .gun, that is, if we are
there, and we wish to be present to look into the
faces of some of the miserable wretches who
never pay for the Register. Well Monday was
a great day. If it had not been cloudy all day,
. we should say it was one of the most notable
days on which the sun ever shone.
As early as Sunday night, it was heralded a
' broad that the town was full of big orators; and
•so it turned out. There were Breckinridge
p speakers, and Douglas speakers, and Bell speak
ers. There wus Ex-Gov. Smith, and Galla
gher, of Baltimore, and Ex-Lieut. Gov. Leake,
and A. M. Barbour, and J. M. Botts, and Gen.
Harman, and a good many others too tedious to
mention. Every gun was loaded to the muzzle,
5 some with ball, some with grape and canister,
, and some with paper wadding. We saw in the
i morning that there was to be a grand massacre.
We expected to see the earth strewed with the
' killed, wounded, and scalped, and so it was."
Arrangements had been made for a discussion
at night between Hon. Shelton F. Leake, Breck
inridge, and Gen. Wm. H. Harman, Douglas
Democrat. But there was no discussion at
night, as Mr. Leake failed to come to "taw." —
' In the polite phraseology of the day he was
"Kings may be blest, but Tarn was glorious,
O'er all the ills of life victorious."
Hon. Jno. M. Botts was "chiselled" out of his
speech on that day, though hundreds went there
especially to hear him. He will speak there on
the sth of October at a mass meeting of the
friends of Bell and Everett. Rockingham will
give Bell a majority ovser Breckinridge.
Whilst sweet "superfluous William" was speak
ing, he alluded in a contemptuous manner to the
Union party, when one of its friends, in a loud
clear voice, buzzahed for Bell and Everett.—
"Extra," thinking there could be but few, and
that the response would be very weak, ex
claimed : "That is right, hurrah for Bell." In
response to this invitation to the friends of Bell
to speak out, there went up such loud and nu
merous shouts for Bell for several minutes that
all were surprised, and "Extra Billy" perfectly
He found that he had unexpectedly wakened
the wrong passenger. He did not request them
a second time to shout for Bell. We would not
be much surprised if Rockingham should get the
prize banner of the State, for we think her pro
portionate increase on the vote of 1856, will
probably be greater than that of any other coun
ty. We believe she can increase her vote 30
per cent., if the proper exertion be made. She
should remember that there is no palm of vic
tory for the sluggard. "Nulla palma, sine, put
vere." If Augusta does not exert herself to the
greatest degree Rockingham will take the State
> Democratic Discussion on Tuesday Night
j On last Tuesday night there was a discussion
3 in tbe Court-house between Hon. Shelton F.
Leake and Mr. Gallaher of Baltimore, the former
tor Breckinridge and tha latter for Douglas.—
During this discussion and at its close tbere was
" a repetition of the scene enacted at Harrison
" burg tbe day before. Such a scene of noise and
I confusion, disorder and wrangling, cheering,
1 shouting and stamping, was never before wit
-1 nessed in this place, and it is hoped never will
be again. After the discussion was over, a few
of the "harmonious" brotherhood manifested
7 their sincere fraternal affection by securing locks
> of hair from each other without taking time to
go to the barbers. They ran into the embrace
3 of each other with such impetuosity that fists
and faces met in violent concussion.
It is generally conceded tbat Hon. Shelton F.
- Leake came off "second best" in this discussion.
3 His friends say he "was not himself," but fail to
i say who he was, if "not himself." We suppose
s tbat he had not recovered from the "indisposi
l tion" with wbich he was afflicted in Harrison
, Fusion Meeting.
After tbe discussion between the Breckin
ridge and Douglas Electors, on motion of Mr.
Wm. Burke, Capt. Abney was called to the
Chair, whereupon Mr. Michael Harman moved
the adoption of a resolution recommending the
proposition which has beeu published under the
signature of Jacob Baylor, Esq., to tbe consider
i ation of the Executive Committees of the two
• wings of the party. This immediately pro
i duced such a scene of confusion and disorder as
> has been of late characteristic of Democratic
- meetings. They put each other through the
. political catechism, and then the patriarch read
' and commented upon the scriptures, reading
i portions of Exodus. After indescribable confu
i sion the proposition was put to the few Demo
> crats who were present, and was passed. The
■ Editor of the " Vindicator" opposed its adoption
i violently. Alex. B. Cochran, Esq. said he
i would hang himself before he would vote for

Our Club Meeting.
Notwithstanding tbe nigbt was exceedingly
unfavorable—being dark aod rainy, and tbe
streets muddy aud very slippery—we had a large
number in attendance at the Bell and Everett
Club meeting. Though the weather and condi
tion of the streets were such as to make it al
most impossible for ladies to get there, yet a
few, actuated by that spirit of heroism which
mocks at difficulties, favored the meeting with
their presence, and encouraged its members by
their sweet smiles of approbation to labor ac
tively, earnestly and assidously in the great and
patriotic cause in wbicb they are engaged, and
which had the effect, we doubt not, of inspiring
them with a determination not to weary in well
doing, and not to relax their, energies till the
great battle shall be fought and the proud victory
achieved, and the safety of the Union and the
establishment of peace guaranteed. We know
tbat we represent the sentiment of all the
members when we express our thanks to them
for encouraging us by their presence. We know
that the idea of separation is abhorrent to their
feelings, and that, with tbem, Union is an
instinctive sentiment; and that, if suffragansi
they would cheerfully rally to the Union
standard, borne aloft by our candidates, and,
remembering sacred Mt. Vernon, wonldjoyously
go where Everett goes.
The President of the Club, Capt., J. D. Imbo
den, on taking the chair, favored the meeting
with a strong, practical speech. He was fol
lowed by our gallant young friend, Jas. Bum
gardner, Esq., who delivered an excellent speech
which possessed the strength of good argument
and the ornament of felicitous historic and clas
sic allusions. He is a "Bum" that will do exe
cntion when thrown into the our polit
He was followed by the sledgehammer, face
tious and mirth-moving R. L. Doyle, Esq., who
wields a Herculean club, and knocks down his
Democratic adversaries in such good humor
that, even when prostrate, they smile upon him.
The Club, after enjoying a good meeting, ad
journed to meet on Wednesday night next, when
I they will be favored with several speeches by
members of the club.
Speaking at the Breckinridge Club.
On Friday night last, the Breckinridge Club
was addressed by Messrs. Alex. B. Cochran and
Howe Y. Peyton, of this place, and Mr.
Christian of Alabama. Mr. Cochran spoke for
an hour and a half, and Messrs. Peyton and
Christian about 15 minutes each. Our young
friends, Cochran and Peyton, speak very well,
and it is to be regretted tbat they are not de
voting their talents to a better cause than that
in wbich they are at present engaged. Mr.
Christian, of Alabama, like Hon. S. F. Leake,
was "not himself," and was "too full for utter
ance." Mr. Cochran and Christian both an
nounced that tbey were in favor of a dissolution
of the Union as soon as it should be ascertained
that Lincoln was elected, and were opposed to
waiting till he should be inaugurated as Presi
dent. Mr. Christian apprised the meeting of
the fact tbat Alabama intended to secede wheth
er Virginia would do so or not. That there was
no doubt about that fact, as tbe purpose to do so
was firmly and deliberately determined upon.—
It was as certain as fate in the event of Lincoln's
election. In the speech made by Mr. Leake, in
his discussion here with Mr. Francis Gallagher,
of Baltimore, he said that Lincoln's election was
certain—he had no more doubt about it than
that he was then speaking. If these gentlemen
be correct in tbeir opinions respecting the result
of this election, the dissolution of the Union,
with all its direful train of horrors will soon be
upon us. Is it not clearly the patriotic duty of
all, irrespective of party affiliations, to rally to
the support of the Union ticket to prevent this
dire result, instead of waging war upon it as
these gentlemen are doing ? We fear that with
them tbe l 'wish is father to the thought."
A Great Deal in Appearances.
) An enthusiastic admirer and thorough-going
) friend of Douglas rode all the way from High
- land county to Staunton to enjoy the great pleas
■ ure of seeing the "Little Giant" and hearing him
3 speak. When the Magnus Apollo of his admira
> tion was introduced to the crowd, he was so as
tonished that he held his breath. "My God,"
he soliloquized, "is it possible that can be the
great Douglas, the 'Little Giant,' of Illinois."—
; He says that be looked at Douglas and then at
Hon. A. H. H. Stuart. He looked upon this
. picture and then upon that. He saw the di
minutive and unprepossessing figure of Donglas
with his coat tail entirely too near the ground,
and the commanding figure and handsome per
■ son of Mr. Stuart. He says that he thought,
"Goodness gracious, gracious Goodness, shall
we make that man (Douglas) President, and keep
■ this man (Stuart) at home." He could not over
come his utter astonishment, and went home
I determined to vote for Bell and Everett. His
father and his two brothers will do the same
Greatness ol Staunton.
3 Staunton is afmuch greater place tban its mag
nitude indicates. It possesses great talents,
, great wealth, great enterprise, and great beauty.
. It contains more talented and eloquent speakers,
> and a greater number of them, than any city or
i town in the State, Bot excepting the Metropolis
• itself. It contains more beautiful ladies, and a
- greater number in proportion to population,
than any other city or town in the "Old Domin
ion." In this respect, it is to other towns in the
State as Hyperion to Satyr. We would caution
those gentlemen who do not desire to have their
' hearts transfixed with the arrows of Cupid, and
dojnot wish to, have their path of life illumina
' ted by tbe torch of Hymen, to keep away from
1 Staunton, for if they venture within its precincts,
unless their souls be incapable of appreciating
the worth of virtue, and their hearts be insensi
ble to tbe charms of beauty, they will be inevi
tably involved in the silken meshes of a love
Discussion on Monday.
On yesterday there was a discussion in the
Court-house between Col. J. W. Massie, of Rock
bridge, and J. N. Liggatt, Esq,, of Rockingham,
the Breckinribge and Douglas electors, respec
tively, of this District. On the part of the
Breckinridge elector there was a very palpable
indisposition to discuss the issues between the
two wings of the Democracy, as was evidenced
by the fact that be did not advance a single ar
gument to to show that Breckinridge should be
preferred to Douglas. The Douglas Elector, on
the contrary, seemed determined to discuss the
living issues which divide tbe Democracy. He
showed that on the subject of Squatter Sove
reignty the difference between Douglas and
Breckinridge, as far as their past records show,
was about the difference between tweedledee and
Delegates to tl.e Farmers' Assembly.
Tbe following gentlemen were elected on

The "Independent Democrat published in
Charlestown, Jefferson county, which supports
with much zeal tbe secession ticket of Breckin
ridge aud Lane, says tbat, notwithstanding the
Democrats in tlut section friendly to the Ad
ministration and the secession ticket demanded
the removal of Col. A. M. Barbour, Superin
tendent of the U. S. Armory at Harper's Ferry,
the President would not only nut remove bim,
but refused to accept his resignation, because he
was afraid to do it—because, in the language of
the "Democrat,' I "he is not the President of the
United States, but the mere automaton of one of
his Cabinet," meaning Ex-Gov. Jno. B. Floyd,
who is the friend of Col. Barbour.
Though the "Independent Democrat" is very
indignant because Col. Barbour was not re
moved, yet in speaking of him as a gentleman
and officer it says:
"He is a gentleman we highly esteem for his
many noble and manly traits of character. He l
has made one of the most popular Superintend
ents tbat ever filled that office, and we know
that among the Artizans of the Armory he has
endeared himself a 9 no other man holding that
position ever has done."
It seems that the Editor of the "Democrat"
does not stand alone, for it 9ays :
"We must confess that the refusal of the Ad
ministration to accept Col. B's resignation has
not only excited the mo9t utter surprise nd as
tonishment among the friends of the Adminis
tration, but it has induced a teeling of indigna
tion and contempt."
Mr. Stuart's Speech in Wheeling.
For an account of the speech delivered recent
ly in Wheeling by Hon. A. fl. H. Stuart, we re
fer tbe reader to the communication signed "L'
in another column. The following notice we
extract from the "Botetourt Journal," a paper
published in Bridgeport, Ohio :
"The speech of Mr. Stuart wa9 a close, ratio
cinative, logical argument. It had a telling effect
upon the audience. All were highly pleased.—
Some of the wavering were captivated, and not
a tew made complete somersaults. We heard
one Lincoln man, living in Bridgeport, declare
it was the best speech he ever beard in his life,
and that from this time on he would act with
the Bell party, as the only one which held true
"The meeting was large, the Athenaeum being
filled to overflowing, and the enthusiasm was
extreme. Boquets and wreaths were thrown
upon tbe stage in great profusion. The spirit ot
genuine liberty was aroused, and all left fully

On the first day of the Circuit Court for this

best speech we have heard during the canvass.
If we were to attempt an outline of tbe speech,
we are sure that we would tail to give a true
idea of its merits, to those who did not hear it,

, will be his duty to "punish or subdue tbem."—
Mr. Douglas' opinion was, we believe, that the

the issue with a certainty of success."
Population of Staunton*
A correspondent of the "New York Herald"
represents the population of Staunton to be only
1300. If he would multiply his figures by 4 he
would be nearer the truth. He must have
looked through the wrong end of his telescope.
He should have inquired of some one, as he is
certainly a very inaccurate guesser. Only 1800 !
Why, it has had that much population ever since
that dim and remote period "whereof the mem
ory of man runneth not to the contrary."
The Prince of Wales.
In reply to an inviration to visit the South,
for the Prince, Lord Lyons writes tbat his "Re
gal Highness hopes to be able to go to Richmond
but is too much pressed for time to extend his
tour farther South." The necessity for his be
ing in England by the latter part of next month
prevents him from being able to prolong his
stay in the United States.

F. McF. Swoope, Secy,
A Protestant Episcopal Bishop in Tbott
ble. —Bishop Whitehouse, of Illinois, has been
in trouble ever since bis connection with that di
ocese. On last Friday the Episcopal Conven
tion at Quincy, 111., broke np in a row on a tes:
vote relating to a question referring the action
of the bishop in the cathedral lot matter to a lay
committee. The lot had been given to tbe dio
cese for the purpose of building a cathedral and
mansion for the bishop. This lot, against the
wishes of tbe diocese, the bishop sold for $6,000,
retaining the money, insisting that be had tbe
right to keep it in trust, and appropriate when
and where he should choose. The object was to
take the money out of the bishops hands, and
return it to the donor of the lot. The bishop
introduced a deacon just ordained, and his vote
decided the question against the members—it
standing 19 to 18. Tbe Rev. Mr. Hodges, of
Chicago, rose and denounced tbe whole transac
tion as dishonest, and more than half the con
vention immediately left the bouse, compelling
a final adjournment.
No Democratic Party.—The Louisville
"Democrat," commenting upon an article in the
Washington "Constitution," in regard to party
organizations, party usages, &c, says :
"The blockhead ought to know-that, accord
ing to him, Buchanan & Co., there is no Demo
cratic party. They broke it up at Charleston
and Baltimore. There is no Democratic candi
date for President; aud every man heretofore
a Democrat is at liberty to vote as he pleases.
After thus proclaiming the state of the case,
what does the blockhead mean when he talks
about Democratic usages ? Tbey are things
that were. We have nothing to do with them
This is a true bill. There is no Democratic
party now. It is dissolved into two antagonistic
and warring factions. And, as Buchanan himself
says, every Democrat in the land is at liberty tv
vote just as he pleases. Let them all play the
part of sensible men and patriots, and vote for
Bell and Everett.
Speech of Mr. Miohie.—On Saturday night
last, Thomas J. Michie, Esq., of Staunton, a
Democrat of the Breckinridge wing, made a po
litical speech at the court-house in this place.—
Mr. Michie is one of the ablest men of the Dem
ocratic party, and made the best of a bad cause.
There was a pretty general turn out of the
Breckites, the number estimated at some twelve
or fifteen, and considerable enthusiasm among
* * * * * * * *BI
He denounced Douglas Squatter Sovereignty
doctrines, and defended Yancey & 00. -against
disunionism. Whilst engaged in this defence
Mr. Michie made a lapsus lingua; wbich we re
garded a 9 a providential mistake. He forgot
where be was and whom he was addressing,
and earnestly appealed to "gentlemen of the ju
ry." It occurred to us that, when Mr. Michie
took up the defence of Wm. L. Yancey, it ought
to be before a jury.— Lex. Gaz. of Sept. 20^.
Now for Steady Work.—Whigs and Atnerj
cans of Virginia, you should now take up the
steady and quiet work of organization! You
should devote yourself's to that work constantly
and energetically. District your counties and
neighborhoods. Form your Clubs. Appoint your
Canvassing Committees; and resolve that in
ten days, the name of every Bell and Everett
man, in yonr respective cities, and towns, and
counties, shall be enrolled. This is now the
needed work ! Let us attend to it promptly !
To the work right away, boys, and fight this
battle with all your might aud spirit!— Rich,
A Candid Acknowledgement.—At a Breck
inridge and Lane ratification meeting ie Madi
son, Ga., Col. John G. McHenry had the manli
ness to acknowledge the soundness and worth of
our candidates. The Madison "Visitor"—a neu
tral paper—says :
"He complimented Mr. Beil as a sound, hon
est man, and Mr. Everett as a pure, high-toned
noble gentleman, whose sense ot justice towered
above the storm of fanaticism, which has dis
tracted the country and jeoparded the rights of
our section of the Union."
A Patriotic Democrat.—Last week a Whig
Olnb was organized at Paxton's School House,
in Rockbridge. Some gentleman nominated Mr.'
Benry Amole for President of the Club. Mr".
Amole, who is now about 65 or 70 years of age,'
and who has been a Democrat all bis life, got
up and said he would accept the office—that he
was a Union mm, and that the ticket of Bell
and Everett was the tioket for him.
"The Cat out of the Bag."—Hon. Wm. W.
Boyce, a few months ago, in his speech at Ebe
nezer, South Carolina, made the following can
did exposition of the plans of tbe disunionists :
"There are persons at the South, who justly
incensed by the hostile coarse of a large portion
of the northern people, sustain every aggravating
issue that arises, in order to alienate the
two sections, and by forcing power into the
hands of a sectional party north, to force
the South into Revolution."
Also notice the following from the same
"Under these circumstances, I think I am au
thorized to consider this question of slavery in
the Territories as purely speculative. True
statesmanship consists in the pursuit of the prac
tical; for government is a practical affair. As
'we can gain nothing practical by the most ar
dent and successful pursuit of this question, I
think it is wise in us to dispose of it for the
present, by leaving it where the Constitution and
the Dred Scott decision now place it."
Yet, upon the shallow pretence of what the
distinguished South Carolinian terms a "specu
lative question," these Disunionists are now
seeking (to quote his language) "to alienate the
two sections, and by forcing power into the
hands of a sectional party North, to force the
South into revolution."
Would to God that the people, the patriotic
masses of the South, would lay to heart these
truths, and visit upon the heads of these reck
less schemers the punishment due to those who
would bring upon our native South civil war,
servile insurrection, and all that gloomy train
of horrors which come sweeping in the track of
Tns Capture of Walker.—By tbe steamer
Empire City, at New York; we have confirma
tory accounts from Honduras of the capture of
Gen. Walker, together with some seventy of his
followers, on the river Rio Negro. The tele
graphic dispatches mention tbe name of a "Col.
Kudler," who is to be shot, along with Walker.
Tbe "Prensa" prints tbe name "Ruttler."
Our accounts, in other particulars, bear ont
the telegraphic version. Immediately on the
capture of the filibusters by the forces of the
British steamer Icarus, they were turned over
to the commander of the Honduras forces, Gen.
Alvarez, with the understanding that Walker
and his Colonel would be dealt with "according
to what was right," and tbat his followers, who
tor the most part, were sick and wounded, and
incapable of bearing arms, should be permitted
to return to the United States, tbe United States
consul at Truxillo being responsible for tbe nec
essary expenses. The whole party were then,
under tbe command of the Honduras general,
marched back to Truxillo, where they were con
fined as prisoners— tbeir arms and baggage hav
ing been previously taken from tbem.
A Phong of a Pitchfork through his Bbains
and not Killed.—A man in the employ of
Jas. M. Mosse, of Belleville, Mass., on Wednes
day, while engaged iv storing away some hay in
a barn, slipped from the scaffold, and fell several
feet on to a fork, one prong of which entered
tbe right cheek, passed through the cheek bone
behind the eye, through the brain, and came out
on tbe top of the bead, projecting two inches. —
About eight inches ot the fork were in tbe head,
and a fellow-laborer had much difficulty draw
ing it out. He retained bis consciousness; rode
to his home, two miles distant, and walked up
two flights of stairs to his room without assist
ance. Though so severely injured, at the last
accounts his physician was not without hope of
A Disunion Straw.—The following was one
of the regular Fourth of July toasts at the cele
bration in Hendersonville, South Carolina :
"By Robert R. Snead— The election of old Abe
Lincoln— tbe shorest way to a Southern Confed
That,explains the object of the Breckinridge
movement, wbich is to elect Lincoln if possible,
and so pave tbe way to a Southern Confederacy.
