Alavist named Gri1ith, in Pernsyv,nia, who is

has 'had the pair arrested, and the nero cor.:nt

But the proceedings is wrong i; is ie al

exercising a constitutional right ?3B-slies, th is
negro has been in the habit of sich'-riding Wit
GrifUth's daughter, and othcr females of the
family. He was on perfect equaity with them
he eat at the same table and slept under the same
roof. and he had frequently heard Griffith say"a
nege was plenty good for a poor wine girl."
T refo- the negro is not only legally, but so

ttamed ; she was taught miscegeuation by her

The Philadelphia Enquirer, says the Carolinian,
arades on its first page a broadside view of the
eering family, seven ia number, who were late
l murdered in the Quaker City, all laid out ia
heir comns in the undertaker's room!
What a propensity the Editor of the aforesaid
nquirer must have for the horrible and the
We are comm;nded to bury our dead out of

-ctims of a murderer in their ghastly shrotads, to

The editor, if a moralist, and not too much
ie to the sale of the morning edhtion of the En

hih the poet is so well expressed, andi which
has been~ so often quoted, that it surely must have
et his eve. We requote it to him again that
e may get it by heart, and act accordingly:
"Vice is a monster of such frightful mien,
As to be hated, needs but to he seen;
But, soon too oft, familiar with her face;
We first endure--then pit y-then e mbrace."
Think of the little children in the morning at
bho'breakihst table; horrii'd over this ghastly
~icture in the undertaker's room-the whole
ering family murdered and laid out I Tocor
ittle things, how frightened they will be at night,
tnd hoar they will huddle close together as they

One of these children-ma: be a man hereafter

Culty ii keeping the promise made la-t we, to

the panevs were received. Mueh of the intter
being i!!eqble is omitted, among i, many inter
estin icidents, naturally arising from the mix
in, of so many different characters. At one
stage of the proceedings it was feared that a row
would ensue and break up the whole thing ; it;
happened through the mischievo-:s pranks of an
eel who, seeing a sucker asleep, with his head
resting Cu the Seeretarys taWJI, wigged his tail
up to the other's nose,.causing such a fright that
in a Imoment a dreadful scene of confusion took
p)lace. Happily order was soon restored by the
president, t1he eel expeiled and a snuff box pre

The selecdon of oUcers had been nande in cau

who had already privately prepired a pream'ble
and resolutions, so 'hat one mighlt very well say
that the whole thing was all cut and dried, and
all that re.1ained to be done %.as for the pvci
dent to take the chair, or rather to back up
against a slippery rock and call the meeting to
order. It was here discovered that no prepara
tion had been made, neither table, light, pen,
ink or paper at hand. A par y of young suaers

ruined by the stopper being out the bottle,
which of course becaie tilled n ith river water,
tie paper torn and wet, and t1he point of the pen
bent by being jobbed at a mud turtle by one
tie youTng suckers. It will be understood, there
fore, that in the first place the papers were bad
Iy drawn up, and made worse thro;igh t"he tip
up Scott': creek and the riin mentioned bst
week. Hence the great difliculty in prepariig it
for press. Most of the above has been subsv
quently learned through a private note of apolo
gy from the Secretary. Below is the report:
10 o'clock, I'. if., Dam, Dush river.-Meetin
called to order, president against a rock, cxpin
ed biieflv o1)je-ct of meeting ; said his attention
had been called in the afternoon to a singular
looking object seen in the water, differing alo
gethier from anything ever before noticed. Slipp
ed out himself to be satisfied that it was so, wen
as c!ose as it was safe to do,and soon saw that it
was only dangerous to the young and inexp
rienced 'smtall fry,' and immediately issued an or
der to take mud or get into holes. Was sorry to
say, notwithstanding his warning, (and yet pleased
because much valuable information was gained
from the acciden;t) one of his brother's children
playing about carelessly was taken prisoner by
this ugtly thing. Fortunately, however, he slipped
through a hole got back home safe, but badl
frightened,to his overjoyed parents. As soon as
quiet was restored, he was c!osely questioned.
lIe remembered while frisking about seeing some
thing dark like a cloud, thought a storm was
brewing, but before he could get away was
caught and drawn upward. Was only up for a
momen.t, but saw six white men, one boy, a freed
man and several little freed nigs. T wo of the
white men tall, one large.r than the oiher ; were
all dressed, and not in the water; thle concern
which caught him was four cornered, looked like
the top of a French bedstead, (recollected seeing
one going over the bridge once,) and had a long
pole attached for a handle. Just here he slipped
through back into the water. Asked if lhe heard
any remarks made. Yes, one, "it's a humbug,
vou North Carolina tar heel." Did not hear
more. Now these are the main facts, and it
would be a satisfacetion, under more ft.vorable
circumstances, to hear some of you espress opin
ions, but as tihe night is so dark, and it a raining
too, it is anything but pleasant out here in the
cold and wet, i'm soaked to. the skin now as must
be the most of' you, therefore it will be w eli to
dispense with any other remarks, arid immediate
ly proceed to appoint a committee to draft a
preamble and resolutions, which it is hoped will
cover the whole ground of complaint.~ Iwol
simply state further. that from the description~
given, I think thec cause of alarm unnecessary,
with due precaution, but still it should be viewed!
with scorn and indignation; it is evidently a net
new fashioned, but a sorry affair, as the name
IIumbug implies ;that it is intended-to Lake us
in is evMecnt, but k will nor if we are true to our
selves (erles of we will, we will), and judging
from the expression "tar hiel" it is of North
Carolina invention, therefore we must denounce
'as natives of South -Carolina waters. Other
ioportant matters might be here spoken of and
iscussed, as for instance whether under the civil
-ights bill we are reqmuired to take kinidly toa
freed as well as a white man's hook, whether trot
inesare legitimnate, and whether authority can1

arks, I propose that a committee, to consist of

one of which we placed carefully away in our
coat pocket for after consideration, just at that
miiont bei::g after an individual with a sharp
stick. Unfortunately it was forgottgn when,
shortly.after, we sat dcwn, and w-s mashed into
an insiguisennt ronetity. Our frienda ! i !se

to scnd or bring such favors -to the o!he, and

we are much indebted to a very much esteemed
