Letters of lMarque and Reprisals.-We
heard it stated on Saturday last, says the
Philadelphia Ledger, by an ietelligent of
fleer of the United States Governmedt,
that Mr. Polk was determined, in case of
a war with Mexico, to make a terrible
example of any foreigners not belonging
to Mlexico, or parties to the war, who may
attempt aggression upoD' American com
inerce under color of letters of marqtre
from the Mexican Government. He will
give orders to the Naval commanders to
treat all such adventurers as pirates, as-in
reality they will be. It will be easy to
uistingaish them by language, aud a few
examples it is thought will be sufficient
to put a stop to their cowardly, dishonest
ad murderousoperations. The iexicans
have but a very limited marine, and bave
scarcely energy or enterprise sufficient to
put ten privateers rfloat; but a war will
afford a pretext to adventurers of other
nations to commeace a system of robbery
under letters of marque, and the best
means we can. adopt to defend ourselves
against them, will be to'pursue the course
which it is said the President -has already
marked Out, and punish them as pirates.

MEssEais& AMNG THE SNAKES.
Pomaria, S. C., July 31st, 1845.
Col. A. G. Summer,
Dear Sir-On Monday the 281h instant,
as I nas rettirning from dinner, about 2
P. M., to. my schol, about 3 miles west of
Pomaria, I heard a noise near the road,
and on examination found it proceeded
from a large black snake, commonly called
a coach-whip. about 6feet long, which had
a half grown rabbit by the head and was
in the act-of swallowing it. Upon my
approaching the snake, it disengaged it.
self from the rabbit and glided off. I picked
up a stone, and the snake stopping at the
distance of forty yards from where I first
diseovered it, I killed it with a single blow.
As soon as I struck the snake, on lookina
back I found the rabbit coming up, and it
stopped immediately at the dead snake's
head. I moved it away four or five yards
with my foot, but it instantly returtied to
the snake's head. I then moved the snake,
and the rabbit still pursued it, and I left ir
About 6 P. M., I returned to the place
together with all my pupils. and the rabbit
rem ained in the identical position in which
I had left it. M~y son moved it again, bunt
it immediately returned to its post at the
*snake's head, and we left it a second time,
still charmed by the continuing spells of
the dead serpent. I returned to the spioi
the next tnornting. but c~ould Gond no trace of
the rabbit. Now, cat) any one tell what
secret power lies hiddetn in the organuiza
tion of a serpent which cauised this itnci
dent ? It is wondrous strange, and well
might p:.zzle more learned beads thatn
mine. If the above possesses any interest
it is at your service for publication.
I am, very faithfully yours,

Our community has ben thrown into a
state of excitement, for some days past, by
the perpetration of one of the must darinig
outrages it has ever been our duty .to re
cord. On Thursday morning last, at day
light, three negroes con fined in the District
Jail for safe keeping being desperate fel
lows, having committed many outrages,
effected their escape from the cell in which
they were conafined, by breaking uhe pad
lock-either by their own effortis, or through
the aid of a female slave, who .was also a
prisoner. and had the liberty of the pas
sage. From at) examitnation) since had, it
would appear that the Jailor, Mr. J. Bevif,
had desired one of the prisoners to call him
at an early hour in the morning,-in order
that he might lock up the woman. This
was accordingly dune, and no sooner had
he opened the middle der, than the three
desperadoes rushed upon him, one of them
strikig him on the head a mortal blow with
an iron hinge, which they had wrenchedl
from the door of their cell, wvhich not felling
him, another pushed him out of the waiy,
and they all* rushed by. The woman did
not attempt to escape. Mrs. Bevil, the
wife of the Jailor-, hearing the noise. ran to
the passage, and saw the negroes endeavor
ing to open the front door of the Jail, which
they soon effected, and made their escape.
Mr. Bevil had followed the negroes as far
as the door, but tutost probably unconscious
ly, for as they passed out he fell to the floor,
and expired in a few minutes afterwards.
We are informed that lhe receivell no other
injury than the Girst blow inflicted, wvhicb
not fracturing the skull, most likely caused
a concussion of the brain.,
After breaking from the cell, and be.
fore their escape from the prison, we are
informed they offered to release two other
negroes who were in confinement, but they
steadily-refused -to join them in their nefa
These three desperados are now at large,
although we, are hourly in expectation of
hearingt of their recapture, as the most ac
tive measures have been taken to this end.

Outrage.-A letter received from Pine

time since a negro was shot near the old
six mile house, -under the following cir
cumstances: * Three colored men, named
Daniel Pegler, John Locklayer and -
Moore, were coming up from Charleston,
and, somewhere near the old six mile
house, met a negro with a basket of pea
ches. Pegler took twoo, and, ont the
negro's complaining, was about putting
them back, when the fellow said " is you
have taken hut-two, you may keep them-"
John Logklayer then came tip and took
his hand full. The negro again complain
ed, and said his master .would soon be
there, and he expected him every moment;
and went a short disiance -and put his
basket down, and commenced grumbling
-whereupon Locklayer ..shot hiin- Peg.

and if the-gun had been loaded-wit" buck
shot -he might hive killed him Gocklay.
or replied he did not care about -it, and if

he-would shoot him also. - A gentleman

The News.-The Britannia has made
