of friends who have written private let
ters, my graU ful acknowledgements for
T 'thcTtgrr conipliniect of proposing to con
fer on me the honors of the Gubernatori

As a general rule,' he who seeks an
office ought not to claim the right to se
lect his position. I do not seek any of
fice, and have no personal desire, aside
from duty to my country, of- holding
public station. In expressing the wish
that 1 may be allowed to decline the
"pfooseiTTidbbfr you" will' bear with me
in presenting briefly some of the reasons
by which I am influenced.
- -' For the last six years, and during one
of the most interesting periods of our na-
rtiona legislation, I have been honored
by the people, in whose midst I have
spent my , whole life, from the cradle to
''the present, with a "seat in Congress as
their Representative. In return I have
.given the service of my best abilities and
the e Sorts of all .my energies.. I have
had my reward in being sustained by a
Vole which defied the trammels of party
organization. - I now hold a commission
' from them, con fe red by the overwhelm ng
, vote ol last year, which I have accepted,
to continue in that service two years
longer! ' It would be an act evincing a
selfishness ' at war; with '. my nature, to
cast that aside- now, without their con -
sent,, with a view to acquire new honors
in another field. Ik-sides, an abai don-
ment of the place so flatteringly assigned
' to me, for such a purpose, would place
me personally in a false position of a
j mere political aspirant..
. . Again, the only actual experience I
have in the public service is lather in
.'Rational than in Stale politics.' The
1 lessons which I have alieady learned
-lend to hi me more lor the service to
: which I have already been, called, than
that which your partiality has proposed,
.whilst there are very many abler and
belief nun in the fctate, whose names
:havt betn mentioned in connection with
i the office ot Governor, who are prepared
for a high degree of efficiency in correct

troduced into our State policy. It would,

Intense Excitement in Parksville, Mo.
PARKSVILLE, Mo., April 14, 1855.
Ala. Editok: The spontaneous up
hcavinsrs of an indignant and outraged
community were manifested here to-day,
in a decided manner. To tell you that
the Industrial Luminary, a newspa
'per owned by Geo. Park and W.J.Pat-
lerson, in this town, is a Freesoil sluet,
and has bit-n aiding and abetting the
Eastern Abolition Societies in llieir abor
live auempt to abolitionize Kansas, for
the past year, is to tell you what you
already know. You are also aware that
Park has a large hotel in this place,
kept by a fieesoiler, imported fiom Illi
nois, and devoted to the same foul pur
pose. It seems that certain men in the
nei;bboihood, determined "to abate the
nuitance." How they managed to no
tify so many, and keep it quiet, I don't
nndeistand; but about 10 o'clock this
morning, we weie surprised to see ten
or fifteen of our respectable country ac
quaintances ride into town and go to the
printing office and put Patterson under
guaid. raik, it appears, cad eitnei
heard cf it. or his rood luck had prompt
ed him to go to ihe mouth of Blue, in
Kansas Territery. At 12 o'clock, about
two hundred men had arrived
- The press was very quietly taken
down and paraded into the street. The
crowd was called to order, and Patter
son was brought forth to leceive his sen
tence. . One speaker stated that they all
were aware that they came there with
the fiim deteimination to black, tar and
feather, and ride on a rail, G. S. Park
and W. J. Patterson, but that as Park
Lad escaped, and left his scape goat to
sulier for both, he wished the meeting
to decide what should be done with the
prisoner. Another speaker declaied his
voice was for mercy ; not that he had
any excuse to ofier for Patterson, for,
he despised him as strongly as any man
could ; but that Patterson's wife through
out the morning had hung to him like a
leech ; that she now held on to him, and
that we could not inflict the punishment
without gross violence to her feelings,
and perhaps rudeness to her person.
He, therefore, for the sake of the wife,
moved a vote to be taken to remit the
tar, leathers, &c, and set Mr. Patterson
at large, lor the present. Ihe vote was
accordingly taken, and a tmull majority
went in lavor of tht prisoner ; he was,
therefore, set at large. The following
resolutions were then offered, and voted
on singlj, and not one dissenting voice
was heard on the ground. Aln ost eve
ry one voted n the ami mauve witb a
vim, too, thi. showed they were in
Resdted, 1. That the Park ville Indus

been endured loo long, and should now
2. That the editors, to wit: G. S. Park
and W. J. Patterson, are tiaitors to the
State and county in which they live, and
should be dealt with as such.
3. That we meet here again, on this
day three weeks, and if we find G. S.
Park or . J. Patterson in this town
then, or any subsequent time, we will j
throw them into the Missouri river, and
they go to Kansas to reside, ue pledge
our honor as men, to follow and hang i
them wherever we can find them.
4. That at the suggestion cf our Park
ville friends we will attend to some other
Freesoilers not far off.
5. That we will suffer no per.-on be-lon-'intr

for the first offence, and a hemp rope for

paper in Missouri and Kansas to publish
the above resolutions.
The press was then shouldered, with a
white cap drawn over its In ad and la
belled Boston Aid;" the crowd follow
ing in regular order ; it was marched up
through town neaily to the upper land
ing, and there, wiili three hearty cheers
was deposited in the tomb ot " all the
Capulets," to wit: the Missouri River.-
A speech was then made to the crowd,
and they dispersed peaceably, each ta
kin r the road to home.
During the d;iy, frequent telegraphic
dispatches were received from bothl-nds
the line of a most encouraging nature.

The Pl.-itte Argus, from which we take
the above, has the following comments
It will be seen- that GeorgejS. Park
and Win. J. Patterson, who have for
years been manilesting free soil and ab
olition proclivities, through the " Lumi
nary " and otherwise were ordered to
dep.irt from lite county in time weeks.
The resolutions rpeak like flint to (he
powder like deterniiued patriots thai
know no fear, and mean to defend their
rights and their institutions. Let the
cast- be fairiy understood let the world
understand, that the people, iri honest
simplicityand determination have destroy

newspaper, for the reason that. Geo.
Park and Win. J. Patterson, who are
citisens wf a slare slat supported bj

the pro slavery men of Kansas and Mis

On this brutal and disgraceful affair
the St. Louis Intelligcn-er comments as
Excitement is Platte Covstv. In
another column of our paper will be
found a description of some violent and
vehement proceedings in Parksville,
Platte county, of this State, last Satur
day. Ii seems that the Parksville Lu
minary newspaper, conducted by Geo.
S. Park and W. J. Patterson, had be
come insufferably offensive to certa:n
citizens of that vicinity on account of its
imagined proclivity towards Freesoilism.
In other words, in the cant language of
the resolutions passed by the citizens, it
was a nuisance which they resolved to
abate. They did abate it in quite a
summary way, too. Tbey proceeded
to ihe office, tore the press from the
building, mounted it with a cap labeled
"Boston Aid," maiched it delibeiately
ti. rough the streets of tho town and toss
ed it into the Missouri river,
v . They had determined not only to
wreak their vengenance on the mule
wheels and levers of the printing press,
but to give the owners thereof a taste of
their wrath, also. They dragged Mr.
Patterson, one of the editors of ihe Lu
minary, into the street, forced him to wit
ness the destruction ot his property, and
then prepared to tar and feuther and
ride him on a rail. But a guardian and
protecting angel was sent to save the un
resisting man from the mortifying dis
grace and degraded punim-ment ready
to be inflicted upon him by the nined
populace. His devoted wile clung to
him to the last "stuck to him like
a leech"' as a brutal eye witness and
narrator of the scene, expresses it, and
endeavored to defend him, by her feeble
strength from the fuiy of the crowd.
She succeeded. Her frail form was an
effectual shield, and saved her husband
from the infliction of a personal outrage,
supposed to be fit-only for villains.
But while he was sjared the disgrace
of tar and feathers, he was given to un
derstand that he could remain no longer
in Paikville. The mob restlvcd itself
irto a ccmmiltee, and resolved that if
he and his colleague, Mr. Park, were
found in the county at the end of three
weeks, theyslould follow theirpressand
find a grave in the waves of the Missou
ri. Mr. Park was nbsent at the time,
- and is, peihaps, indebted to that fact for
his exemption from the same humiliation
visited on his associate.
We scarcely know how to speak of
these proceedings, lhat the Luminary
may not have been sufficiently pro-slave-:
ry in its sentiments, for the latitude and
. locality of Platte county, presided over,
by the way, by Gen. Atchison, seems to
have been the head and front of its of
Therefore it was voted a nuisance, and
summarily disposed of. The Luminary
was not an Abolitionist paper, nor were
its owneis. Messis Park fe Patterson,
Freesoilers. One of them Park, we
believe is owner of slaves, and not at all
likely to publish opinions, which, while
endangering the slave property of oht
ers, would alsojeopardize the salety ol his
e wn. But the Luminary spoke no hard
and bitter words against the emigrants
to Kansas from the North. It did no't
call them "hirelings" and "white
slaves," bought up and sent up by
Northern capitalists to plant the stand
ard of Freest ilism on ihe soil ol Kansas.
It welcomed all settlers with open arms,
and encouraged emigration to the new
territory from all quarters, because its
owners knew lhat the rapid set lemenl
of Kansas by industrious and thrifty em
igrants would augment the trade and ad
vance the interests of the border towns
and cities of Missouri. For this they
were "spotted," tried by a self-consii-1
tuted jury, found gui.ty, condemned
and ordered to leave the State.
" We think the Platte county people,
when they come to reflect coolly on their
conduct, wiil be heartily ashamed of it.
It is unworthy ihe liberal spirit of the
age, nnd unbecoming the chivaliic char
acter of Missouiians. Yet they are not
so much to blame for the affair, as the
arch-demagogue, Gen. Atchison, and
his subordinates who have instigated it.
Atchison's voice is not In ard, nor his
name mentioned; but he is at the bottom
of the business. He has fanned the
slavery excitement into a wild and dan
gerous flame, which threatens yet more
terrible lesults than have yet transpired.
What do the repealers of the Missouri
Compromise think now t Are the fiuits
of that repeal so glorious and promising
as was predicted 2
The St. Louis Democrat also com
ments indignantly on the outrage, thus :
Slavery Excitement. The destruc
tion of the Parkville Luminary presents
the fact, that in the western counties of
this State the agitation of the slavery
question has been wrought up to a fear
ful d gree of intensity, and that it is no
longer permitted to the public press of
the country to comment in any other
than an approving manner on the pro
ceedings of those nullifiers, who set
themselves up as the peculiar guardians
of the State institutions. In addition to
this fact, it w ill be seen too that these "in
dividuals" have denounced in the most
intolerant manner, every man, woman
and child connected with the Methodist
church north, and have threatened with
the cord and dagger any of its ministers
who may seek to preach the mer
cies of the Redeemer to the people
of Platte. This is certainly going- far
ther than we have ever yet know n fanat
icism to reach in America. The resolu
tions which held up vindictive threots
over the heads of editors of the Lum na
ry, if they shall ever again appear in
Platte county, or if they shall dure lo set
tle in Kansas territory, are perhaps uot
so' remarkable. Those who make no
scrupltrs of voting in Kansas while resi
ding in Missouri, are not likely to hesitate
in dictating who shall go there an i set
tle, before their own proposed txidus
shall take place.
Tub Buffalo Democracy thinks the
present ciop ol New York is done for

The Cleveland Herald closes an ablo
and sensible article under the head : .
" Who are responsible for tho riots ?" j
with the following paragraph ;
As to ihe propriety of making the mat-
; te-r of birth a question in our politics, we
shall give no opinion ; neither is it a duty
to defend the Know-Nothings, for as we
1 have before said, we are ignorant of all
their doings ; but when the assertion is
made that the late riots are directly
chargeable to the Know-Nothings, we
say i l is false. These riots are tho di
rect result of the banded organization of
Foreigners, who in sustaining the pres
ent Locufocu party,, havo been wont to
diite all men from the poll save those
of theii- political faith. Native Ameri
canism has finally gathered fore, moral
force and physical force ; and the scat
tered cohorts of Locofocoism, and the
vanishing ranks of foreign bullies, only
show how desperate has been the fight
to regain the rights of Americanism."

velled over (he tales which travellers and
geographers give of tides in the Bay of
rundy. When they are out, men may
venture great distances upon the bed of
the bay, and travel along the very sea
bottom dryshod nnd safe. But woe be
to him who forgets himself, and is found
far from the high tide line when the tide
begins to return in good earnest. Those
tides in Fundy do things in an awful way.
Marching sometimes with waves twenty
aud thirty feet high, and outrunning the
swiftest horsea in headlong speed. The
animals of that region no sooner hear the
distant sound, low, murmuring, than
they all, dog, pig, horse, and cattle, take
to their heels, and with squeeling and
nt tilling, rush to the shore, boinetimes
even they are caught. They do not hear
the sound soon enough. The wind is
the wrong way. They are too busy
feding. Or long impunity has made
them presumptuous. Then you shall
see a piteous race ; tie black-fronted
wave pouring over ard over after the ill
fated eieature that rushes with wild af
fright, in vain, but is soon caught and
whelmed, and rolled under the black wa

A great many Northern men have ven
tured a great way down toward the bot
t' m of the bay of public sentiment on
the subject of slavery. The tide was
out. The way seemed safe. There
wa- any degree of confidence and even
exultation. Sermons were boldly preach
ed that had the eject, whatever a close
construction might have shown, of the
abominable legislation of the last five
years on the subject of slavery. Lec
tures and speeches ot the most adventur
ous kind were made. Indeed, at one
time, nothing reemed about to be popu
lar in our cemmercial centers which did
not give a fling at doctrines of human
rights, e r a palliative and defence of slave
A few men heard the returning tide of
public indignation in due season, and
made for the shore. Others were less
piudent. With their heads down, search
ing for muscels or oiher food in the orze
and sediment, they gave no heed to the
distant sounds. Now they are seen on
the full stretch rushing for the shore in
terrible agitation, and the terrific tide
wave close behind them. Poor fellows,
we pity their race and their fate. We
will not heighten their trouble by this
ill timed remaik ; but mention it, that
men may know, hereafter, that even

following proposition :
Your report on these contracts makes,

If true, I am a dishonest man ; if false,
you are a slanderer. One of us, then,

pact, that if you shall, before the first
day of October nex', make good these
charges to the satisfaction to the Presi
dent, he shall at once remove me from

shall be meted out to you. lou have

Another Steamboat Robbery.
Another, and perhaps the most daring
robbery, which we have been called up-
on to record, was perpetrated at our
wharf on Saturday morning between six j
and seven o'clock. The Chronicle gives j
the following particulars : A gentleman i
named J. D. llouver, late of Cambria ,
county, in this State, who, together with
Ins family was emigrating wesi, toon
passage on board the steamer New York,
which is up for Su Louis, Galena and St.
Pauls ; and while seated at the break
fast table, had his state ivom entered
and some S2U0 stolen therefrom. The
money, which was in gold, was in a
trunk, the lock of which was picked, by
means of false keys. The police were
notified of the lobbery shortly after its
occurrence, but as yet, although every
exertion has been made, have not suc
ceeded in ferreting out the person who
committed the bold deed. Pittsburgh

Wonderful Escape—the Haycock Powder
Wonderful Escape—the Haycock Powder-Mills Blown Sky-High.
On Wednesday morning last about 8
o'clock, the chimney of the drying house
attached to tho extensive powder mill
of Stonebak efe Detweiler. in Ilavcock .
township, took tire, and burned out fuii-
ously a i. the top
mill at the time. Tbey beard the roar
of the fire, and ran
i out of the building, I
intending to get buckets, and ascend to
the roof with water, to prevent the shin- j
gles from taking lire. After a moment's
reflection, they thought the undertaking
a hazardous one, and very prudently
abandoned it. They made their escape
as fast as possible: - ' ' "
In a few moments the roof was on fit e
in several places, and it is said to have
been about three minutes before a spark
fell through the shingles into the main
part of the building, where there was
about four tons of powder, which of
course was immediately ignited, and the
while mill was blown sky-high, a part
of which has not since been seen.
The explosion was terrible, and shook
the country for miles around. It was
distinctly heard, the jar felt, and a cloud
of smoke observed, at Plumsteadville,
Price's Tavern, and Doylestown.
Mr. Charles Roudenbush, a farmer of
Haycock, was plowing in his field at the
time of the explosion. He informs us lhat
the effect on him was of a stunning na
ture, and the earth trembled under his
The most fortunate circumstance con
nected with theJerrihlo catastrophe, is
that no one was Tilled. John Stonebak,
Sen., saed himself bj getting behind a
big tree, less than a hundred yards Irom
the fatal -pot. One or two other per
sons, who were about the mill at the
time, made their trampers give "a long
pull, a strong pull, and a pull altogeth
er," and succeeded in making their es
cape from the infernal machine.
The powder mill was ewned by John
T. Stonebak and Samuel Detweiler, and
was near the oil mill of John Stonebak,
Sen. They are all situated on the To
hicen Creek, and near the road leading
from Doylestown to Richlandtown.
The loss is variously estimated by dif
ferent persons. The lowest estimate we
have heard is 8500. and the highest
$5,000. Doylestown, (Pa.,) Democrat,
Burning of the William Knox.
ed by Capt. Wm. Yard, was destroyed
by tire on Sunday afternoon about tour
o'clock, at Flint Island, in the Ohio
river. The fire originated on the hurri
cane deck, among some chairs. She
was fully loaded with freight and passen
gers for St. Paul, Minnesota. There
were about 150 passengers on board,
mostly emigrants. No lives were lost,
but no baggage or freight was saved.
Boat and cargo a total loss, with no in
surance on the boat.
The boat's books and money were al
so destroyed. The work of destruction
did not occupy more than ten or fif een
minutes, and, although the pilot ran the
boat to the Indiana shore, ihe passengers
had to jump into the river to save them
selves. The Crystal Palace, that hap
pened to be near by, rounded to and took
the passengers to St. Louis, free of ex
pense. Since the above, we have conversed
with Mr. Stewait, the clerk of the Knox,
. who has given us some additional par
ticulais. The boat was from Pittsburg,
bound for the upper Mississippi, and the
majority of her passengers were emi-.
grants from the Eastern States to set
lie in the West. There were quite a
number of women and children on board.
The hurricane deck was coveted with
furniture, and the fire spread with extra

prevailed among the passengers, and but
for the exertions ot ner tmcers many

; The Knox was a stern-wheel boat,
and abcut two and one half years old.
About 31,000 were in the safe, which
were lost. A hole was bored in the
lower deck, and, as the cabin fell over,
the hull careened, filled with water and
sunk. Mr. Stewart thinks the hull, as
well as the freight in it, will be saved.
Erie. Meanness ocasionally meets
with a check that is a lesson to all con
cerned, especially to the victim. On
the Cleveland cars a day or two since,
comin; to Buffalo, was a stalwart man,
poina lo New York to buy goods. He
was not what might be called a stingy
or close man, but he was one who, when
there was a cent due him that swindling
might deprive him of, would sacrifice a
S30 bill to save the copper. : Uur Iriend
had started from Cleveland without any
breaktast. and when Jne " nove in
sight, he gathered himself up for a gene-
' rat skirmish tor any ami all kinds ol pro
visions. He had a carpet Lag wi.h him,
and going into the dining-room at Erie,
deposited his carpet-bag on one chair,
while he took another by its side. He
was lost for about ten minntes perfectly
oblivious to anything, save that he had
a blessed knowledge of something rapid
ly and agreeably tilling up his ' inwards.'
About this time, the landlord came
around, and stopping by our friend s
chair, eiacul ited "Dollar, sir." A "dol
lar," responded theeatingman "a dol
lar thought you only charged 50 cen:s
a meal for one eh !" "That's Uue,"
said meanness, "but I count your carpet
bag one since it occupies a seat." ( The
table was far from being crowded.)
Our friend expostulated but the landlord
insisted, and the dollar was reluctantly
paid. The landlord passed on. Our
friend deliberately arose and opening
his carpel-bag, full in its wide mouth,
discoursed unto it, saying, " Carpet
bag it seems you're an individual a
human individual, since jou eat at
least I have paid for jou, and now you
must eat," upon w h.ch he seized every
thing eatable within his reach, nuts, rai
sins, apples, cakes pies, and amid the
roars ol the bystanneis, the delight of
his brother passengers, and discomfiture
of the landlord, phlegmatically went and
took his seat in the cars. He said he
had provisions enough to last him to
New l'ora after a bouutiful supply had
been served out in the cars. There was
at least $3 worth in the bag, upon whic.li
the landlord realized nothing in the way
of profit. So much for meanness.
Great Fibe in Boston. A destruct

Tub Death op Me.niscuik.off. The
death of Mentschikotf seems to be no
longer doubtlul, but its cause is still i
mystery. He is said to have been woun
ded by an English shell on the 18th of
t ebruary , and to have sunk at last under
the effects of the blow. According to
thecuirent statements, he was sent to
Bakshiseral and thence to i'impheropol,
with a view of being transported by easy
stages to Odessa. He accordingly start
ed from Simpheropol on the 8th, but be
came so much worse on the way that he
was obliged to remain at Perekop, where
he died a few days after the master with
whom he had so much influence and so
unscrupulously served. Whether Ment
schikotf was superseded for some fault,
real or imputed, or whethei he was
merely relieved on account of the acci
dent which Lad befallen him, is not
known here : but it is lingular that the
career of the creat representatives cf
Russian policy should hare closed almost
at once so suddenly aud so terribly.
