lib TUAGEii O.N THE RIO GRANDE.
In oar paper of Saturday, we announced
under our latest news head, the killing of five
Americans by the Mexicans—and the fact that
steamer Camanche had been again fired into
and a government officer wounded. Through
our New Orleans exchanges, we have received
the particulars of these outrages, which have
put in peril the life of every American, residing
on the border:
The Fhg of the 15ih ult., states that on the
evening of the 10th ult., a gang of about forty
men, consisting of Mexicans and Indians, at
tacked a party of seven Americans, who were
encamped at a lake called Campacuas; five of
those at the camp are said to have been murder
ed, and ali their property taken into Mexico.
Two of the men, fortunately, were on the
margin ot" the lake shooting ducks at the time,
and succeeded in making their escape. These
robbers and murderers are said to have ciossed
tie river some forty miles above Brownsville,
on Friday, the 7th ult., and a detachment of
tiiem openly re-crossed it again soon after
perpetrating the murder, bearing with them
the right hand of each of their slaughtered
victims, while the remainder of the savages
coolly encamped oil the ground where the mas
sacre occurred, expecting no doubt another
least or blood from those whom they deemed
absent from the cainp, and would probably
return unsuspicious of danger.
The population of the neighborhood was not
only too sparse for resistance, but afraid to
vtnture out to bury the dead, after the mur
derers were gone. The Flag contains a letter
from Warren Adams, which says that it is un
derstood that these Mexicans and Indians were
instructed by tiie authorities in Mexico, to kill
and plunder all American citizens near the
frontier, and that acting as they did, under the
instructions of the aforesaid authorities, they
mutilated the bodies of the murdered men,
taking the light hand of each to testify that
they were entitled to the reward of thirty or
forty dollars offered by Mexico for each Ame
rican they murder on the frontier.
The Rio Bravo of the 20th, states that the
steamer Camanche was again fired into last
week and a custom house officer, residing at
Rio (Jrande city, Mr. Brashear, was danger
ously wounded. His little son was also
wounded, and a Mrs. Rogers narrowly escaped
a similar fate.
The following card, published in the Rio
liravo, gives the particulars of the outrage :
We.theundersigned passengers from Browns
ville to St. Louis, Edinhurg, ami Kio Grande
City, on the steamboat called the Camanche,
commanded by Capt. Richard King, and ply
ing on the Rio Grande, to and from the Ame
rican towns on said river, exclusively, do here
by state, that on Monday, May ]?, 1852, at a
point known by the name of Rancho Santa
Anna,on the Mexican shore, while said boat
was quietly and peaceably pursuing her course
up said river from Brownsville, as aforesaid,
she was fired into from the Mexican shore,
while very near the same, by a party of Mexi
cans,(the exact number not known,) discharged
some twelve shots, two of which took effect on
the persons of Mr. W. B. Brashear and his
son, a boy of some four years old, and the bal
ance of .liferent parts of the boat.
Mr. Brashear is a revenue officer, stationed
at Kio Grande City, and was proceeding up
the river, accompanied by his family, to resume
the duties of his otfic-e at tf.at place.
We further state that there was no cause or
provocation given by any of the passengers,
officers, or crew of said boat, to warrant the
outiage thus wantonly committed to a vessel
belonging to the U. Slates, and running upon a
tiver free to both nations.
(Signed by me officers and passengers.)
On the evening of the 14th Mr. Philip Rogers,
a merchant of Rio Grande City, while standing
behind his counter, was stabbed to the heart
and killed by a Mexican, who had, ostensibly,
came in to purchase goods. The object of the
fellow was, no doubt, to rob the house, as Mr.
Rogers was not known to have an enemy in
the world. Another Mexican was upon watch
outside of the house, but both succeeded in
making rheir escape to the chapparal. They
were discovered almost in the act, and one of
the fellows, in coining outof the house brushed
agaiust a gentleman who, hearing the cry of
Air. Rogers, hastily run to his assistance. All
tfTorts to discover and arre3 - . the assassins have
•so far proved abortive.
Ae strange ms it may seem abroad, says the
K\o liravo, this is the tenth murder which has
taken place within the last three weeks, ror

killed per week.
Mr. (J. N. Clark, who recently arrived at
Biovnsvill* from New Orleans, was found
<iead in old Fort Brown, 011 the 16th, and it
was evident from shot and other wounds that
he had been murdered.

nations, and shortly after thev met a respecta
ble citir.en, attired in Texan hunters' costume,
cap, red flannel shirt, tin horn, rifle, &c. He
inquired if they had seen two voung men with
whom he had been hunting, and by some means
had lost trace of. On receiving an answer in
the negative, lie left them.
As soon as he got out of sight, the peddlers
firmly convinced that he was chief of one of
the gangs of robbers, left the road and struck
into the woods. They had not gone far before
they came upon another rough looking custo
mer, one of the companions of the hunter they
had previously met. Taking him for a robber,
and fearing thai he would shoot them if thev
attempted to letreat, they immediately drew
their revolvers and commenced firing at him.
The hunter retreated, and endeavored to ex
plain, but they would listen to nothing, and
kept shooting away. He blew his horn forhis
companion, who came up just in time to hear
a bail whistle close by his ear. The hunters,
finding remonstrance useless, and being excel
lent shots, brought the peddlers down the first
fire. The matter was then explained, and the
hunters conveyed tliem to a house where their
wounds were dressed.
A Terrible Crime—Criminals Convicted.
The Mavsville (Ky) Eagle of the 26th ulti
mo,has an account of the conviction of four
murderers, who killed a man and his wife.
Our readers will remember the horrid mur
ders committed in the latter end of February
lust on the persons of Justice Brewer and his
wife, in Greenup county. These deeds were
perpetrated by a band of desperadoes four in
number, three of them named Clarke and one
named Hood. They blacked their faces, and
far in the nigbt proceeded to the premises of
their victims. Going into the poulti v house,
they set the hens to squalling, by which trick
l\Jr. and Mrs. Brewer were enticed out of the
house. Airs. B. went out first in her night
gown, to protect her chickens from the fangs,
us she doubtless thought, of wild beasts of
prey, litile dreaming that they were prowling
in human form, and that herself and husband
were the objects of their bloody hunt. Mr. B.
followed immediately, and both were set upon
and beaten to death with heavy clubs—he be
ing killed outright, and she left for dead,
thought she lingered insensible and speechless
till next morning. Their poor little children,
five in number, the eldest but eleven years old,
unconscious of the horrid tragedy by which
they were plunged into the miseries and sorrows
oforphanagc, slept undisturbed till morning,
when missing their parents, they wandered to
the houses of the neighbors in search of them.
This awakened suspicion and alarm, and soon
the people of the country round about were
roused. The first party arriving at the house
found the prostrate bodies where the assassins
left them—the husband dead and stiff, the wife
only exhibiting signs o! life by an involuntury
contraction of her lower limbs. At eleven
o'clock that morning her sufferings ended with
Antecedent circumstances furnished ground
of suspicion that John Collins, a near neigh
bor of Brewer, was the instigator, if not the
actor, of the tragedy. A chain of circum
stances, slight indeed in their origin but cor
roborated and strengthened until they amount
ed to proofs clear and conclusive, fixed ttie
eye and the hand of justice on Collins and his
To make a brief story of the evidence, Col
lins, purely out of malice, had induced the
three Clarks and Hood, by threats and bribes,
to undertake the murder. One of the Clarks
was a son-in-law of Collins. Two of the
Clarks were brothers, the third a cousin, and
Hood, we believe, a relative. One of the
Clarks and Hood are lads about seventeen
years of age. These four were the parties ac
tually engaged in the, murder—the malignant
but cowardly Collins, the planner of the wick
ed conspiracy, purposely remaining at home,
because he foresaw he would be charged with
the murder. A part of the scheme, designed
to provide for Cellins's security, was that the
young men should leave their hats with Col
lins, which would make it necessary for them
to return to his house, and by this they would
be able to testify that Collins was at home on
the night of the murder. The plot did not pro
bably ccntemplate that suspicion would light
on the young men.
Collins and his four accomplices were indict
ed, and he and Turner Clarke, the one who
wielded the murderous club, were tried before
the Greenup Circuit Court last week. These
two were convicted of murder, and sentenced
to be hung on the 2oth of June next. There
was not time to try the other three before the
term of the Court expired, and they will re
main in jail, ironed and guarded, till the next
The circumstances establishing the conspi
racy between Collins and the four young men,
were so convincing that we understand each
of them, except Collins, separately made full
confession, even before the trial.
A narrative of the evidence in this case
would furnish a chapter of circumstantial evi
dence perhaps as marvellous, but at the same
time clear and conclusive,as ever was detailed.
The very plot of the conspirators, designed to
hide the.r crime, served to develop their guilt.
It was a fine illustration of toat remarkable
passage where Shakspeare makes Hamlet con
gratulate himself on the contrivance of the
play, by which he expected to expose the "oc
cult guilt" of the King, in one scene of it:
"I have he«rd
That guilty creatures sitting at a play
Have, by the very cunuing of the scene,
Been struck bo to the sou!, that presently
They have proclaimed their malefaction?;
For murder, though it have no tongue, will speak
With most miraculous organ "
Keep the Heart as I.iglit as Yon Can.
We have always enough to bear,
We have always something to do,
We have never to ask for care
When we have the world to get through !
But what, though Adversity test
The courage and vigor of man,
They get through misfortune the best
Who keep the heart light as they can.
If we shake not the load from the mind,
Our energy 'a sure to be gone ;
We must wrestle with care, or we'll find
Two loads are less easy than one !
To sit in disconsolate mood
Is a poor and profitless plan ;
The true heart is never subdued,
If we keep it is light as we can.
There's nothing that Sorrow* can yield.
Excepting a narvesf of pain;
Far better to seek Fortune's field,
And till it and plow it again t
The weight Exertion can move,
The glojm that Decision can span,
The manhood within us but prove I
Then keep the heart light as you can.

RICHMOND WEDNESDAY MORNING, JUNE 9, 1852.
We read a atory the other day of a Scotch
minister who had an iron pot given to him by
one of his flock; and taking it home, finally got
it down over his ears, and couldn't get it off, un
til the village blacksmith broke it with his
This reminds us of an exploit we used to hear
of when a boy, of a ycung fellow named Ad
kins, who practiced butting with a ram. Crooh
ed-horns was brought up about the house, and
Adkins had hardened his head upon him while
he was small, and for a long time was on over
match for the litle fellow, and coald worst him
at butting. But young rams are not going to
stay small always—they come after a while to
prodigious hardness in the head and strength
in the neck, which not being natural to two
legged rams, gave him a vast advantage over
Adkins, whose fondness for the sport began to
decline as that of the four-legged champion in
creased. He began to think he should have to
avoid the encounter, unless his wit could sup
ply the place of strength and hardness, and
own up beat—and that he didn't like at all.
One day, the ram had butted him amazing
hard, and it made him mighty mad. So he
went into the house, and putting his mammy's
dinner-pot partly on his head, went out to butt
with the ram. Crooked-horns was as ready as
ever; he knew it was Adkins; and when he
came at him on all fours as usual, he let drive
full tilt at the pot, which he knocked clean
over his ears to his shoulders. The victory was
full and complete—for Adkins was down, and
couldn't help himself—the light of day was ex
cluded, so he couldn't see the ram, who still
kept coming at him on all sides—until he final
ly had to bawl out lustily, and crawl and
sciamble to the house, until he alarmed and
brought out the old woman.
She drove off the ram and took Adkins into
the house, butcome off thejpot wouldn't; final
ly it had to be broken before Adkins was re
lieved. To her dying day she lamented the
loss of that pot; and as long as Adkins lived in

to healthy flesh, skin or bone, it acts upon scientific
principles and FIXED LAWS OF THE CREA- I

Liniment has proved its great value in the short
time it has been in Virginia, is sufficient to givethe
greatest confidence, that its virtues are incompara

Having been afflicted with acute Rheumatism for
some time, and tried several of the most popular
medicines of the day, also under medical advice,
and received ao relief until I tried the MUSTANG
LINIMENT, and much to my surprise, I received
immediate beliep ; and I am confident, that by a
few more applications of this truly celebrated Lini
ment, I sha Ibe entirely cured; and I advise all who
are afflicted, to try the Mexican Mustang Liniment

An Editorial Article
From the Savannah Republican ot December 20th,
1851, written by A.K.Moore, Esq., recommend*
the MusUng Liniment ir. the following manner:
This medicine is now offered to the people of
Georgia for the first time. Our personal experience
enables us to recommend this Liniment to the
public with confidence, as we have felt the good
effects upon a sprained ancle, which received great
benefit from one application, and has been almost
cured by the occasional use for a week.

A. G. Bragg & Co.: The 9 dozen bottles Mustang
Liniment left five weeks ago, a>e all sold Send
me 30 dozen immediately. The Liniment has per
formed some wonderful cures here. Doctor W
VV. Nevel says it is the greatest Liniment in the
world He has a negro girl almost deaf and blind.
His remedies did her no good. A few applications
of the Liniment cured her entirely. It is also curing
James Coy's leg, which ha 3 been a running sore for
forty years. It has not failed in a single case so
far as it has been tried.

HORSES AND OTHER ANIMALS.
We only ask a fair trial of this valuable Lini
ment in the cure of Strains, Bruises, Cuts, Galls,
Scratches, Sweny, Pole, Evil, Fistula, Big Head,
Spavin, Ring Bone, Wind Galls, Cracked Heels, or
any wound, stiffness, or enlargement of bone or
muhde in horses. We have many certificates to
those cures, and, therefore, am confident it will
give perfect satisfaction, and effect all we recom

BRATED GERMAN BITTERS, prepared by Dr.
C. U. Jackson, at the German Medicine Store,
120 Arch street, Philadelphia.
Their power over the above diseases is not ex
celled—it equalled—by any other preparation in the
United States, as the curss attest, in many cases af
ter skilful physicians had tailed.
Tnese Bitters are worthy the attention of inva
lids. Possessing great virtues in the rectification of
diseases of the Liver and lesser glands, exercising
the most searching powers in weakness and affec
tions of the digestive organs, they are, withal, safe,
certain and pleasant.
READ! AND BE CONVINCED.
Charles Robinson, Esq., Earton, Md., in a letter
to Dr. Jackson, January 9, 1850, said—
"My wife and mysell have received more benefit

" We have uniformly refrained from recommend

their value. Among those we consider worthy of
notice is the German Bitters, invented by Dr. Hoof

One instance in particular, in which the superior
virtues of this medicine has been tutted, has fallen
under our observation During the last summer, a
son of Mr. Abraham Crabill, of this county, was
ve'y seriously afflicted with Liver Complaint, and
after trying in ?ain various remedies, he purchased
a bottle ot the Bitters, and after usina it, was so
much relieved of his distressing malady, that he
procured another bottle, and is restored entirely to

The celebrated Dr. Jaync, whose repatatkm a*

lies in Philadelphia had been confined to her bed
fourteen years wi h Rheumatism, and was curedby
H „G. Farrell's Arabian Liniment. He alao says:
" Your Liniment is going rapidly: send me a sural*
immediately by Leich i fast Una"
My daughter, when six months old, was taken
with a swelling in the tonsils, which grew larger
and larger, till when six years old, she had great
difficulty in swallowing her food. Every right,
watch was kept, fearing she would suffocate, fie
best doctors attended her, but could give no relief.
I took her to the most eminent doctors in the East;
they said there was no help for her but to outgrow
it. With a sad heart I returned home with her,
when she became so much worse that the doctors
had to be called in again ; they decided the tonsils
must be cut off, as the only means of giving relief
My wife would not consent to this, and she deter
mined to try your Liniment, which gave relief the
very first application, and by a continued use she
entirely recovered. She i» now ten years old, and
fleshy and healthy as could be desired. Your Lini
ment is also the best in uie for sprains, bruises,
cuts, burns, headache, <fcc.; and it will remove the
most severe pain in a few miuutes. It also cured
caked udder in my cow in a few days.

Mr. H G. Farrell: Your Arabian Liniment is the
greatest medicine fir horse flesh in the world. I had
a mare about to foal, when she became so beiplesa
that she could not rise from the ground: she was
in this way for several days, when with seven other*
I succeeded in raising her up, which was the only
way it could be done, when I commenced the use
of your excellent Liniment, rubbed in well over
the loins, and astonishing as it may appear, be fa re I
used up a bottle of the dollar size, she was able to
get up and walk herselt. I would not have given
ten dollars for her before, and many advised me to
shoot her to put her out of misery; she is now one
of my best mares. I suppose it was a strain in the
loins. G. W. HUNT.
