they were absent he untied himself with
his teeth and escaped. They told us where
the murdered men lay. "We marched forward
in double quick time, and when we
arrived at the swamp there they lay sure
enough, stripped entireloy naked, and chop
ped and mangled in the most horrid and
savage manner. The man who escaped
said there were 70 of the murderers, each
man with a pistol and hatchet, and that they
went into a ranche or town some distance
from here. We returned to Rinconada and
made them feed us and our horses, and at

THE BAPTISM OF IIENRY CLAY.
A notice was very generally circulated
through the public papers of the country
some two or three years ago, to the effect
that Mr f'lnv Imrl lippnmp n rmnniKor ?Vi <-*
Protestant Episcopal Church. The wish
was, doubtless, father to the thought, as Mr.
Clay had not at that time taken any such
step. He has always been known to have
the highest respect for the institutions of
Christianity, and to have been a decided believer
in the divine authenticity of the
Christian religion?his amiable and now
deeply afflicted wife, having for many years
been an humble follower of its Blessed Author.
When the weather permitted it, living
a3 he does, a mile aud a half from the
church, Mr. Clay has always been a regular
attendant on its services, and for two or
three years past, having had more leisure
from public duty, his attention had evident
ly been turned to the high considerations
connectcd with things spiritual and eternal
?his life having been devoted so intensely
to the good of others, as scarcely, until this
period of retirement, to leave him an opportunity
to think of himself. But he has at
length consecrated his great powers to God.
He was baptised in the little parlor at Ashland,
on Tuesday afternoon, the 22d June,
together with one of his daughters in-law,
(the other being already a member of the
Church,) and her four children, by the Rev.
Edward F. Berkley, Rector of Christ
r unurcn, Lexington. The baptism was administered
privately, for the reason that
the congregation of Christ Church are replacing
their old church with a new edifice,
now in rapid progress of erection, and are
not suitably situated for the most solemn
and descent administration of this rite in
When the minister entered the room on
this deeply solemn and interesting occasion,
the small assembly, consisting of the immediate
family, a few family connexions, and
the clergyman's wife, rose up. In the middle
of the room stood a large centre-table,
on which was placed, filled with water," the
magnificent cut-glass vase, presented to Mr.
C. by some gentlemen of Pittsburg. On

Church the sabbath after he died?fit witnesses
of such a scene. Around the room
were suspended a number of family pictures,
and among them, the portrait of a beloved
daughter, who died some years ago, in the
triumphs of that faith which her noble father
was now about to embrace ; and the picture
of the late lost son, who fell at the battle
of Buena Vista. Could these silent
lookers-on at the scene about transpiring
| nave spoice irom me marble and the can;
vass, they would heartily have approved
I the act which dedicated the great man to
j God. There was a deep emotion pervading
j that small assembly, at the recital under
1 such circumstances, of the sublime ordinal
I of the Church, and every heart thrilled wiili
; a solemn joy when the merciful and glorious
covenant was sealed, " in the name of ,
the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy ;
; Ghost." I
This act will be publicly ratified at the :
I visitation of the Bishop, on the third Sun- j
: da\ in July, in the Apostolic rite of Con-;
j What a noble and powerful rccommen- i
dation of Christianity to the world! to see ;
this great old man, the greatest man of his j
day, in all the vigor of intellect, and arden ;

and with the simplicity of a little child, re- ;
j ceiving upon his head a handful of water, '

testing his faith in the Christian religion,
; and his determination to live and die by its
! sacred principles. !
; One of the prominent sins of the present
day is, that the great men of our country, as j
a body, although it may be, for the most part, ]
speculative believers in Christianity, are, j
nevertheless, not regardful of religion, and ;

j A Mexican Blankkt.?Among other
curiosities in the possession of Capt. 15rooks,
which he kindly submitted to us for mspec- j
tion, we saw a Mexican Hlanket, such as is !
! worn or used by the natives. The blanket is j
?m vai ij^uicu u?>iuis. uiio is mucii uucKur inun
our ordinary blankets. A hole is left in the
centre, through which the wearer slips his
j head, and it Talis in graceful folds around
the person. It affords quite a warm covering
in the winter, and is impenetrable to
! rain. The blanket in the possession of
Captain 13., he informs u.s, is an ordinary
one, but it appears to be quite a warm artii
cle, and doubtless, rendered him some good
service. A first rate Mexican blanket is a
I very beautiful and substantial article of
! dress, and costs several hundred dollars.?
Until we saw the blanket above mentioned,
j we had no idea, that it was so becoming to
: the wearer. Wi* rt^pceiTuISy suggest to
| the fashioners of dress in our midst, to make
| up some garments after this style, and we
j believe that they will laUe well. Certain
i we are, that if one should be offered to us,
we would take it.
Attention is called to the advertisement
of Captain Brooks, who is appointed as a
recruiting officer at this place. We hope
that the spirit of patriotism will incite many
to join the ranks of the Palmetto Regiment,

who support themselves entirely
by agriculture. The city is one of the most
extraordinary in the world. It is divided
into four solid squares , having two streets
crossing its centre at right angles. All the
. buildings are two stories high, composed of
j sunburnt brick. The first story presents a
solid wall to the street, and is so constructed
that each house joins, until one fourth of
the city may be said to be one building.
The second stories rise from this vast solid
structure, so as to designate each house,
leaving room to walk upon the roof of the
first story between each building. The in
habitants of the Sumai enter the first story
of their buildings by ladders, which they
draw up at night as a defence against any
enemy that may be prowling about. \ In
this city was seen some Albino Indians,
who have no doubt given rise to the story
that there is living in the Rocky Mountains

that the Sumaians have, since the S'p&iv,

Major Richardson returned yesterday from

influence of slavery upon productive energy
is like the blight of mildew ; that it is a moral
and social evil; that it does violence to
the rights of man. as a thinking, reasonable,
and responsible being. Influenced by such
considerations, this State will oppose the introduction
of slavery into any territory
which may be acquired as an indemnity for
claims upon Mexico.
