Death of Kit Carson and Chief Jastlce
. - : . Furguson. , ,.
We have just reoeived the Nebraska
Republican,' (Omaha City) of November
16th, from .whiob we learn that Hon.
Fenuer. Ferguson, , who . was appointed
Chief Justice of that Territory, by Presi
dent Pierce, immediately after tba passage
of the Kansas-Nebraska bill, and who has
represented the Territory, as Delegate in
Congress, for some two ytara past, died,
after a few .days' illness, at Bellovue, on
the 1 1th inst. . . Tho immediate cause of
his death was paralysis. He was. one of
the. earliest settlers and roost prominent
citizens of the Territory. He was a native
of New York, removed to Albion, Michi
gan, where he practiced law for a number
ot years, and was oboten to the Legisla
ture,. and from here went to Nebraska.
The Republioan also learns from passen
gers direot from Ft. Kearney, that Kit
Carson, the celebrated frontier-man, Indi
an fighter,, and overland traveler,, died
lately at Toas. New Mexico, and that im
mediately after his. death,, the Indians
commenced hostilities against 'fe whites.
Kit Cai-3on was Superintendent of Indian
affairs In that region., , Tba report of his
death ueeds confirmation.
'. ; The Republioan also states that addi
tional frauds at the late eleqtion for-Delegate
to Congress, have been discovered.
An uuimamtta oounty, called Calhoun;
returns 28 votes for -Estabrook, (Dem.)
and f for Daily, (Rep;) It is a fraud, in-
asmuou.as not a solitary voter resides .in

Tba Virginia papers oonliaue to be fill
ed with matter relating to tbe Cbarleatown
disturbno8 and tlc4pprebeodd rescue
of old Brown. Tbe Richmond Enquirer
of yesterday, saya : , t ;
Tha iaforroatLon and intelligence that
induced Gov. Wise to move forwsrd the
troops to Charleatowa so long before the
execution, were contained in dispatches
and letters whicb too plainly indicated a
aettiea purpose of reecu.--
In the opinion of uov. Wie, tht press
ence of a large body of well-appointed
troops, would advise evil disposed persons
of the folly of such an attempt, and thus
be the means of preserving life. To have
delayed advancing the troops would have
encouraged the Abolitioostd to prcsecnte
tbe organization for a rescue, aod enabled
them to impose on the thoughtless by mis
representing Ilia danger and underrating
tbe number of troops that now guard the
pneouer. - ,
The intelligence which ' induced Col.
Davis so telegraph for 500 troops, was
oommunicated by a responsible and r
speotabla citizen ol ' Virginia, just from
Ohio, and whose statement was every
way entitled to lull laiin ana credit, lhis
intelligence was not communicated to Gov,
Wise, hut merely the order for 500 troops
to be immediately dispatched, which was
promptly complied with, without inquiry
aa to the necessity for them.
"The' Euqtiirer then subjoins extracts
from responsible persons, with their names
attached. , . Ooe from Lswisburgh, Pa.,
datedNo. 15th, ays: ,;
"At a friend to tha Constitution and
the Union, I feel it my duty to apprise you
of a twarm of secret and lawless band of
fanatioal Abolitionists and Black Republi
can!, now forming in this, as well at sev
eral other eounties, in this State.
- The prineipal organizvion is in this vil
lage, and auxilary sooieties exist In the
neighboring towns. They call themselves
the "Noble Sons of Liberty," and as far as
I can learn, number about five hundred in
all, and are led. by Capt. James Smelley
alias "Limber Jim." an ultra Abolitionist
of Ibis village, They are armed with a
pair of Colt's revolvers each, and" design
dropping into Charlestown and adjacent
places, by ones and twos, so as to avoid
suspicion, and, when all are collected at
Charlestown at a certain signal, to pounce
upon tbe jail, and demand tbe release of
that old villain, John Brown, now prison
er in the hands of tba judiciary of your
State. ; The reason for nsing revolvers, is
that tbey oan he carried about tha person
without attracting attention, or exciting
suspicion. The exact time for oolleoting
tbe forces of the brigands above mention
ed, I could not. ascertain, but they will go
to Chnrlostown in disguise, and mostly by
night, which I believe is the plan adopted
by their ringleader. Tbua fat they have
adopted tbe utmost seorey as to the exist
ence and object of their association, and to
avoid suspicion on the part of all outsiders
here, tbev will leave cradually, so that
their motives will not be suspeoted until
dsv or two previous to the execution of
Brown. -. I was nshered into a large room
here, to my astonishment, I found about
75 persons congregated, alt seemingly
conversing upon some topio wbiob they
wished kept seoret. . While I was in tbe
room several persona were initiated, and
took the oath of membership." .

Horrible Scenes In Indian Warfare
Geo. Winter, of Lafayette, Ind., writes
to bis father in that city, a letter from Car-
son Valley, dated September 20th, wbicb
is published in the Journal. He says :

Thomas Harding, from Ohio. , In my
surprise and alarm I gave a most infernal
yell, which brought a body of our men
from tbe other side of tbe creek, whicb
saved me from a horrible fate. The Indi
ans were surprised, and did not aeem to
know how to aot.
But a ssd and bloody strife ensued.
Our party killed five Indiana on the rpot,
and took twenty prisoners, eleven of whom
esoaped during the night. The remain
ing nine were bung on the following mor
ning. This -was done by placing the
tongues of tbe wagons together, and. lying
ropo at tbe apsx. ..me Indians were
made, to stand upon a bone, the rope was
adjusted, around the necks, the horse was
then driven .from under the gallows, aod
e.toh one was thus landed into eternity.
It was a sid scene, but one of. terrible ne
cessity for self-preservation. One of tbem
proved to be. a wbite Kan, evidently a
Mormon. ' Ha . was stripped iron rods
from behind the end-gates of five wagons
were Used to whip bim until he was near
ly dead,' they were then heated red hot
and pushed into his .flash. ' " ;',. ' .'
Oh 1 it waa horrible and revolting; yet
I with many, others, stood, and saw bim
suffer. Tbey burned bim so that, at last
he did not seem to care any more for it
than the mere prick of a pin. , At first he
cursed and swore that bis, friends (the In
dians) would have revenge for this.,. They
then hnng bim and tied the knot so ss.io
prolong his sufferings. He was then cot
i1sn .nrl taken to tha willows. He WSS
watched by men. secreted in lb5. bushes-t
in ft Short time some Jomana aroe sneak
ing up to take the trounded man away.
He seenied lo revive through " something
that was administered lb. him. ' He reviv
ed sufficiently 'to relate to the Indiana bis
suffering.' In their effort to jun ; the
wonpded man. pff,, the party spiang up
from their ambnsb, and abet the wounded
man dead, and wounded another Indian.
Tba next night the Indiana slipped icto
our camp and killed two men by tha name
pf Jefferson, from Indiana.

the presenting of revolvers at tbe r beads,
they were kept st bsy

and crew, and br the cabin passencers
snd sea-faring men will give cr dit to the
skill and disipline that prevailed,-when
they are fold that every beat was launched
supplied with oars, manned loaded with
passengers, and sent off, without a single
ai-sident worthy of notice. Mrs. Johnson,
tbe captain's wife, tbe only female passen
ger, wectin the first boat, behaving with
considerable cooloess throughout..
i he ship in s cht, which proved to. c
the British ship Achilles, came rapidly np
and hove to tbe windward of us. and
sent a boat to our aid in charge of our
second mate. The four boats of tbe Mas
tiff and thit boat or the Achillea Were
now employed in passing and repassing
between the two ships, taking off and
transporting the Chinamen. Tbese poor
fellows, not understanding our language
ignorant of toats and tbe tea, filled tbe
chains, hung over the sides by rope

boats, and force was necessary to keep
them from swamping the boats. In a-
bout on) bour and a half after the first
alarm was given, every person on board
the Mastiff bad been salely placed on
board the Achilles, with tbe singls excep
tion of a Chinaman, who went below to
save bis money chest, and was suffocated.
His death was not known, except to a
few ot bis countrymen , until tbe next
