Second Judas Iscariot. rhe squlie and
companions were all conveyed to Chi
huahua, and. incarcerated in prison, and
were still there- at last accounts. Old
Col. Waid was very ill, and some of the
foroigners in' the place offered to become
.,his security; but the Mexican authorities
.jhtiumanly refused to release him.
A miiber of Capt. Mears's company
..,ofMounted Volunteers was shot for mu
tiny in the latter part of December. He
had threatened his captain's life and
made many attempts to execute his pur
pose. He was tried by a court martial
and sentenced torbe shot. His captairs,
notwithstanding the most solenm threats
of the nian, addressed a lerter to the
commanding general, soliciting a re
prive as a personal favor, but he very
properly rPplied that unless some ex

man inust meet his sentence. He was
* 'taken from the Provost Guard, perfect.

tired, but only two balls took effect. Ile
raised himself up and asked for water,
which was given hii, and a reserve

.nother execution took place in Sal

Th6 criminal's name was Alexandcr

Capt. Mear's comnpany. He was sen
tenced to be hung by a military comnis
ston for wilful murder in shooting a
Mexican in Calle Real, at the qnarters
of the revenue . guard. The scene of
the execution is represented as having
been extremely revolting from the con.

erected in the main -plaza between the
fountain and the jail. All the town gar

AItRIVAL FROM OREGON
We leairn from St. Louis Republican
that Mr. Thos. -Glendy, of St. Charles

souri Territory, on the 17th ult., having
encountered and overcome -all the dangers,
privations and difficulties incident to such
a trip, direct from Oregon City,. Oregon
Air. Glendy; with only one companion.
left Oregon City on the 23d day of Sep
tember last, and with that daring spirit of
bravery and enterprise so characteristic of
the hardy sons and pioneers of the West,
started on his distant perilous journey to
the States, over mountains and plains,
covered with snow, tenanted only by the
wild beasts of the forest, and the still more
savage and hostile Indians. .
This little company left Oregon with
six mules. Before they reached Fort Hall,
they lost, by death, all their mules save
one, and they were comrpclod to make
use. ofhim for the purpose of packing their
little stock ofr necessaries and provisins,
while they travelled on foot through snow
(as they represent it) "so deep, in many
places, as to reach above tieir knees. At
Fort Hall, they were disappointed in their
expectation of procuring other animals, but
nothing daunted by difficulties, they again
started on foot, making slow and tedious
}rogress, on account of the great depth of
the show, and their being compelled often
to take circuitous and distant routes, to
avoid falling in with roaming hands of
Indians, and arrived at Fort Kerny safely,
with the exception of badly frost bitten

Ar 1ditor,-Sir: Before leaving Mcxi
cati was informed of a report'iu circula
eton aceusing me of not standing up to my
post during'the storming of Chapultepec.
Before J met out for home I was furnished
with the enclised certificates, by a-portion
-of theOfficers:engaged in that expedition,
and one them: (Captain Miller,) to whose
company- was attached during the on.
gagement. I should not wish them pub.
lisbed, but I understand that there are simi.
lar reports in circulation; here. As it up.
pears to be a mystery to some, why I was
in,aPennsylvania Company at the storm
iog of Chapultepec instead of our own
Company, for-their satisfaction I will ex.
Two days previous to the storming of
theeUastle of Cliapultopec, orders were
receiyed by Major Gladden, who had
command of the Palmetto Regiment, to
send-a sergeant and a number of men (I do
uot recollect the number,to GenOral Quit
man's''quarters for the purpose of forming
a-. Light Battalion or. storming party. I
.was sent for by Maj. Gladden, who iniorm
ed me that he had received an order from
Gen. Quitman for a sergeant and a small
;etail of men, for the purpose of forming a
ILighs Battalion and asked me it I would
tgo- I replied I would. The men were
4hen selected and we left in about fifteen
iinutes, for Gen. Quitman's quarters.
On arriving at Gen. Quitman's quarters, I
reported myself to him through Major
Twiggs, as having command of the. quota
of men from the Palmetto Regiment. Gon.
Quitman said to me that my command was
too small for a company, and that he
would make me orderly Sergent in the
company K. of Pennsylvania, commanded
by Capt. James Miller, and ordered me to
take my post as such. Afier the.company
was formed, we were dismissed, with or
ders o. appear at head quarters at the beat
of the drum at 2 o'clock-at which time
we were formed and remained so until the
Division moved. late in the evening. Wo
camped th'at night at Tacubaya where we
remained during the next day to guard
Druni's battery' which was firing on the
castle of Chapuhepec. The next morning
the whole Division moved, the Light Bat
talion being ordered in the advance. We
had proceeded to within about 150 yards
of the castle 'under a heavy fire from a
battery in the road and also from the cast le,
,when Major Twiggs who had command of
the party was-killed by my side, the coin.
mand then devolved on Captain Miller,
and the command of his company;which
I was orderly sergeant devolved on me,
there being no cntnmissioncd officer it it.
Very soon after, the castle surrendered.
Captain Miller, who was wound.d, order
.ed me to go back and take charge of the
body of Major Twriggs.

That there is a crisis approaching in
commeorcial alTairs no reasonatbhe man can
for a moment duuhit; and should our Banks
continue to purstie the same course they
hn-ve been doing for some time pa-d, none
can tell the consequnce. Our lianks and
DIirectors- compfaini that they arc fearful of
increasing their discoutit, andn thus oxtend
their circulation, for the simple reason that
their issues may be brought buck and do
manided. in s'pocic to send to Mexico
This may be true; bttt we should like to
know if~nli share alike; that is, if Biank Di
rectors and their ilmnediate friends get no
mitre than- the rest of our butsintess commtn
niy. We have too long been gagged hy
the Banks and their Directors, and it is
now time that the community should open
thfeir eyes and perceive the grand finan
ciering operations which are being daily
carried on, We talk about indepentdence
of spirit, and yet allow our Bank Directors
to receive heavy discounts, whlile the rest
of us are shared out. We write-boldly,.
but we w~rite the truth-having no fear of
these mighty -Lords of Finance.
In times like the preset,. when-country
collections are difficult to make, why do
not our Bankts publicly inform the commu.
niy that they will rene'v all good business
paper by receiving 10 to 15 per cent, there
oni, anid 'facilitate the honest m~erchantt to
meet his paymnents.witha comparative ease?
The Banks would, be as secure as before,
having the same-endorser; they wouldl thus
sometimcs s-tve the merchant the deplora-I
ito necessity of frcing ofPhs goads-to rm-'et
bis pinymeiits, anda would become public
ienefactors, in lieu of being commercial
ryrants. We trust that something will be
done to relieve the distress now on our
sommercial community, and thit very
shrtly. I not, let the Banks ta'ke the
responsibility upon their os a shoulders.
. A MERCH ANT.
The Remains of Lieut. V. B. Brooks,
were i received at Edgefield Village on
Monday evening last. It was met two
miles from town, by a large conrcouree of
citizens, in carriages on horseback, and on
root, and escorted to the house of hisfatehr.
On Wednesday, a funeral procession; com
posed or the military, and a large coo
course of mourning friends and citizens,
under tWe direction or Col. G. D. Mims,
and Maj T. G. Bacon, formed, and pro
ceeded with the remains to the Court
1liuse; where an apprpropriate eulogy
was pronunced by Capt. James N. Lip
scomb, upon tihe deceased. The proces
sion then moved to the Eoiscopal Church,
the brial service was petformed, after
which it proceeded to the family burying
ground ; and the burial service being there
concluded, the last funeral ard military
bonnrs were completed by the military.
Thus has sunk to a premature grave,
another of South Carolina's noble clil
dren-another priceless victim to the
renorseless spirit of war. And, when we
conteinplate the utter prostration of hopes
which this cruel an'] wicked Mexican. war
has carried to the homes and firesides of
niany of otir most estimable families, we
cannot but deeply deplore the madness of
our rulers in recklessly precipitating the
country into it. For if will be long re
mombered that it has -cost the country
many of its best and most promising mien,
and immense treasure.
The aged and infirm father, already
hent down by disease, whose life and en
ergies have been devoted to rearing and
directing, in tbe paths of usefulness and
honor, his noble sons, is now doomed, io
the loss of this one, to the cruel and crush
ing disappointment of those bright hopes
and anticipations which so naruredly and
reasonably inspire the bosom of every fond
parent. May the other son remaining now
in Mexico, (Cap:. Preston S. Brooks,) be
spared to do honor to himself,to his family,
and his State; and safely return to sooth
the deep sorrows of his aflicted. family
and friends.-Columbia paper,
From a Colum6ia Paper.

Mulsical Entertainment.--A few evening- .
since, a Musical exhibition -was held-dn the
Court [Houmse, when a band composediol' four
persons performed on a variety of inateenth.
Thle first perfomrmnnce was upon "the,"Flute,
Violin, Violincello, and a kind of brass instra
ment. The mnusicins. allerwards, in- rapid..
-meccession, played upon-the violin,, trombone,.
the bones, and other instiriments. Some co
mic songs were also sung. The most curiens'
performiance was oin-anumiber of bells'oT va-'
rious sizes, all making diffeirent no'tes. 'They
all caught up the bells and rang. them' in con
cert produceing ihe desired notes and playing a'
variety oftnines. Ini this they exhibited 'much
slkill. The notes however, though iniperfect "
accord, were not very melodioue. We were
better pleased. with- the other instruments.. -.
The entertainment concluded with a number
orsongs, accompanied with instrument'al music,
.jn the style of Ethiopian Minstrels. Some of~
them were very good. Among otherajone of
the perfrmerms sang the p'opuhar~ song~clled
"The used up Mag.l"' Heb caufe-on the~iage,
