cities, when every man that met another had
anxious inquiries to make as in time of~ pesti

hope of relief, Lord John Russell, who was then
Premtier, went to the Bank of England. He said
to those in authority that it was the business of
the Bank to prevent and to cure panies, not to
promote them, and that whatever course they
might pursue for the public relief, they migrht

Leaving Augusta one morning about four wen

This, one of the oldest railways in America, is ec

not quite so fast as upon some other Roads, is as co

conductors are aceomodating and clover. (Maaro:

faitful, which is b~est proved by the regularity
their trips and the very limited number of accidei
which occur on thne Road. And, lastly, the attenti
of the stewardesses, in supplying ice-water and reif

ielhborhood had for some years been annoyed
vith a band of thieves, whose practice it was to
ive upon the farrrs and stock of the honest citi

rully eluded the vigilance of the sufferers, and es

antil at last, their ,induct becoming intolerable,
ind their depredations alarming to the community,
t was determined, on the part of the good citi
;ens around Honey-Gall, to remove them at al
inzards, and without the aid of the law.
In pursuance of this determination a band 01
egulators (a term well understood i' Florida,
Ualifornia, and some of the Western States,) was
rwganized some days ago, and on Friday last pro

n the country could no longer be tolerat, d, :'ne
that they must take themselves away by Tuesday
(last Tuesday) or submit to the law of force ; tha!
an that day they must leave the country eithe'
peaceably or otherwise; and that for their crops

.lso have their passage paid on the steamer, tr

Among the parties thus notified there was a mari

not be justified, they have the sympathies n

il state of things that forces peaceable and honest
ttizens to adopt the " Regulator" system; yet
oetimes and under some circumstances it must
e done. I do not think such a state of things
,xisted here however, as required such desperate

equally regret the fact that our laws and the
