men in the employ of Mr. W inter the ironmonger, in
Bankside met the men, and endeavored to restrain
them. 4i He is a murderer," was the reply. " We
won't have him here, the Austrian butcher; we'll
teach him to flog women." Another rush was made
at him ; his hat was thrown high into the air, amid
loud derisive shouts, and his clothes nearly torn oil
his back. His mouslache and beard were pulled in
the most violent manner, and one man, who had in
his hand a large bladd knife, caught hold of the
marshal's beard, and made a strong effort to cut if
off. By this time the party had reached the George
public house, in Bankside, near Southwark bridge,
kept by Mr. Benfeild, and in the confusion the Gen
eral succeed in getting from the mob, and running
into the George. The nephew and interpreter re
mained at the door as long as it was practicable
they, however, were soon compelled to seek shelter
inside, the mob beating them and rushiog up stairs.
Mr. Benfeild was at the time attending at the bar,
and his wife was up stairs with her child. In an in
stant the lower part of the house was filled by the
mob, whose conduct now became furious, while
hundreds collected in front. Loud were the cries
" Out with the butcher ! Drag the murderer out!
Down with the wretch ! " Several rooms were
entered, but the Marshal could not be found, and it
was supposed he had been concealed. The mob
then became impatient, and would listen to notiiing
else than his production. Several men scaled the
front of the house and got into the front room win
dows. The nephew and the intepreter were found
on the landing, but the objeet of their fury was no
where to be seen. In a few moments a loud yell
proceeded from the back part of the premises. Some
coalheavers had discovered the Marshal crouched in
a dust bin attached to the house. By the hair of his
head they dragged him out shouting " we have got
the Austrian women flogger ! " This announcement
was received with almost frantic cheers by the mob
. outside the house, and the Marshal was about being
dragged along the passage into the streets, when his
cries attracted the sympathy of some strangers, who,
with the aid of his nephew and interpreter, succeed
ed in getting him from the grasp of his assailants, and
in locking him up in one of the bedrooms, while oth
ers stood sentry at the door, and prevented it being
forced. Mr. Benfeild, the landlord, endeavored to
appease the mob. They replied, however, that if the
wretch was not given up, they would pull the- house
down. Most fortunately, Mr. Benfeild, at the first
rush into his house, and fearing that it would really
be demolished, sent for a policeman, who arrived
just at the moments the threats were being made
and it being dangerous for him to act alone, he ran
to the police station for further aid. A strong body
of the force soon arrived, and their appearance at
once quelled the fury of the populace. The inspec-
tor, on entering the house, found the General seated j
on the edge of a bed in a pitiable condition, lie
was much exhausted, and in his own language
complained severely of the pain he endured from the
injuries inflicted upon him.
Having partaken of some slight refreshment, the
inspector assured him, through the interpreter, that
he might consider himself perfectly safe under his
care, as he had a body of officers down below to pro
tect him. It was sometime, however, ere he could
be induced to believe that he was free from further
violence. His torn garments having been tempora

ed. The Representative of this Government at Con-

pose of the Sublime Porte, to send a public agent to
this country. Tho Government of the United States
received this information with pleasure, and I at
happy to-day to realize the anticipation in which w
isstrikingns well as pleasing. From
,'ou come, on an errand of peace and
friendly inquiry, to the western shores of the Atlantic.
From a country of so much antiquity, aud so much
character not unfavorably known in the world.
In the name of the American Government and
People, I bid you welcome ! The country is before
you, and all open to your examination and inspection.
Whatsoever there is in our political organization, in
our system of education and instruction, in our com
mercial regulations, or in the organization and equip
ment of our means of national defence, whethrr in
the army or in the navy, will be readily subjected to
your injuiry. Competent officers will be instructed
to conduct you to the dock-yards and public arsenals ;
the hospitals for invalids and the various institutions
for the relief of the poor, the insane, the blind and
the impotent, will invite your attention. You will
pass along, with opportunities to observe the great
lines of communication, of canals and railroads; and
you will visit aud examine those manufacturing es
tablishments, the produce and growth of private en
terprise, which have enabled the vessels of the Unit
ed Slates to bear samples of the skill and industry of
their people all over the Levant. You will see the
broad fields of American agriculture, producing wheat,
maize, rice, cotton and tobacco. Finally, sir, you
will have an opportunity of beholding the mountains,
and the rivers, and the lakes of this continent, and
be able to report, accurately, when you return to the
confines of Europe and Asia, on what scale of mag
nitude are those natural features of the earth which
iiave attracted your attention.
While you remain in the country, Mr. Commission
er, every proper degree ot respect will be paid to
you, and, so far as depends on as, the wishes of your
Sovereign respecting the success of your mission
shall not be disappointed; and I trust, with you, that
its effect may be a greater extension of friendly and
commercial relations between the Ottoman Empire
and the Republic of the New World. Amin Bey !
you have said, aud said truly, that His Imperial Ma
jesty, your Sovereign the Sultan, has won the appro
bation of the American Government and People, by
the course pursued by him in favor of those unfortu
nate Hungarians whose recent condition had claims
on the feelings of the humane and benevolent all
over the world ; that approb. lion, let me say, is deep,
and cordial, and wide-spread. Not disposed to in
terfere with political occurences which do not affect
ourselves, the people of the United States are yet
intelligent and well-informed, and quite observant of
all that passes in the world, connected with questions
of national and human rights. While they maintain
a strict neutrality in all foreign wars, they neverthe
less sympathize most deeply in all struggles against
oppression. They are lovers of justice, of mild gov
ernments, of humanity, and of every thing which
promotes the cause oi political and social happiness
I repeat, Mr. Commissioner, the pleasure I have
in welcoming you hither, and re-assure you of the
disposition of this Government to make your mission
agreeable to yourself aud satisfactory to your intelli
gent Sovereign, the aultan ot the Ottoman Empire.

put in his place.
The port of Windsor, we understand, has paid noth-

ber to our list within the same time. "
Within the same time we have added to our list j
over one hundred new subscribers ; and we expect to
receive three or four times that number during the j
next two months.

We are informed that the residence of Mr. E. E.
Harris, of this City, was assailed on Sunday night
last, by some person or persons unknown, who threw
large stones at it, breaking the windows and serious
ly alarming his family. One of the stones, weighing
fully two pounds, entered the house, and passed just
over the head of the bed in which his children were
sleeping. Mr. Harris has offered a reward of $25,
for the discovery of the perpetrators of this vile act.
Such occurrences are calculated to injure the char
acter of our place ; and we trust every good citizen j
will aid in bringing the offenders to justice.
The Superior Court for this County is in session

Mr. Editor, I heard the above discourse with much
pain, and retired feeling, is it possible that the citi
zens of Jamestown, and Guilford county, &c, are
going to submit quietly to such outrages? are they
going to sit with folded hands, and let their domest-

; It does not become us to volunteer our advice on
I this subject, or any other, to the people of Guilford
County; but we may be allowed to express our pro
j found surprise that such conduct in their midst is
permitted to go unpunished. This man Crooks, we
: are informed, is now indicted in one of the Counties
; in that part of the Suite, and will have to stand a trial ;
but we hesitate not to say that he and his associate,
McBride, ought to be silenced at once. This is a
matter about which we would hear no excuses, no
I explanations, no promises of reformation or amend
ment. These men are vile Abolitionists the worst
i enemies of tbe black race, as they are the sworn foes
of the whites ; and those who wink at their conduct,
or who would shield them in their diabolical work.
are no better than they.
We have no wish, of course, to produce unneces
sary alarm on this subject; but we feel it to be our
duty to warn the people generally against Abolition
ists, Abolition lecturers, and Abolition movements.
The enemy is in our midst ; and as we value our prop
erty and the lives of our families, let stern measures
in all cases be adopted. If such men as Crooks and
McBride are allowed to go on unpunished, it will not
be long before Abolition Societies are formed by their
influence, and an organized attack made upon our
rights and our peace. Indeed, we hear that they have
already been engaged in forming Churches or Asso-
ciations of non-slaveholders; and that they insulting-
ly refuse to sit at the same table with slaveholders,
wben they can avoid it ! These men are the agents
and instruments of Northern Abolitionists, to whom
ihey regularly report an account of their doings, and
the degree of success attending their efforts. If these
things are permitted now, what may not be done five
or ten years hence ? Let every man who feels an
interest in this matter, (and who does not?) reflect
upon the above question, and answer it for himself
to his own mind.
LATE FROM TEXAS.
It appears that the Governor of Texas has vetoed
the bill, passed by the Legislature, requiring him to
submit to the popular vote the proposition from the
General Government regarding the boundary. The
Governor's veto was sustained by the House, and
the bill was consequently lost.
The Legislature of Texas, having got through with
the business before it, has adjourned to the third
Monday in November next.
The question of accepting or rejecting the propo
sition of Congress will therefore have to be deter
mined by the Legislature of Texas, instead of by the
people, as was as first supposed.
The last Goldsborough Patriot comes to us en
larged, and materially improved in its appearance.
Friend Robinson has a soul as large as all " out
o 'doors," and his labors in the good cause deserve
the most substantial encouragement. We wish him
the most abundant success.
Great excitement is said to exist among tbe Fugi
tive slaves in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, on account
of the passage of the Fugitive Slave Bill. Many of
them, armed and equipped, are going off to Canada.
GEORGIA IMPORTANT DOGUMENT.
We nnhlinh tinlnt. from the MSHwrlirovilln TTn:n
r . w.uu,
the Proclamation of the Governoi of Georgia, order -
mg tne election of Delegate to a Convention of the
people of that State to assemble at the capital on the
10th day of December next the election to be held
on the 25th day of next month.
This document will attract universal attention; and
it may be the first practical step towards measures of
which no man can foresee the pnn. dnv. Tnwna'
uses language well suited to his position, to the noble
State he represents, and to the great crisis now upon
us ; but he wisely leaves it to the people of his State,
in Convention assembled, to adopt their own course
with reference to the present and the future.
The Miiledgeville Union, in publishing the Proc
lamation, savs :
" The near approach of the day for the election of
delegates to the convention, demands promptness in
bringing out candidates to the field. Let all remem
ber that this is no party contest, and eschew all par
ty feelings, party names and distinctions; but that it
is a contest for Southern rights, against Northern en
croachment; for slavery against abolition.
For ourselves, we wish to see no committals on
the part of delegates in regard to the remedy, and
no instructions on the part of their constituents.
We wish to see none elected but Southern men men
who can appreciate the danger, have wisdom to de-
vise the best remedy, and firmness to carry it out.
Committals will breed distraction. None now can
forsee the state of things two months hence. Con-
gress is yet in session, and the surrounding Southern

be their decision, let them abide it. "
To the Electors of Georgia Greeting t
Having been officially informed, that the Congress
of the United States has admitted California into the
Union of the States of the Confederacy, upon equal
terms with the original States, a duty devolves upon
me in the performance of which, I shall trespass up
on the public but briefly.
An unfeigned deference for public opinion, and the
profound regard I entertain for the wisdom, firmness,
and patriotism of my fellow citizens of Georgia, will
not justify me, in a paper of this character, in repeat
ing my known and unchanged opinions as to the du
ty of the South in repelling Free-soil encroachment,
and arresting, by all proper means, usurpation by
Whatever is compatible with the honor and obliga
tions of the People of this State to the country, its
laws, and its institutions, I doubt not, will receive
their warm support. d
In an hour of danger when your institutions are
in jeopardy your feelings wantonly outraged, your
social organization derided, your honor deeply wound
ed, and the Federal Constitution violated by a series j
of aggressive measures, all tending to the consumma-
tion of one object, the abolition ot slavery when
your equal right to occupy and enjoy the common
territory of all, has been denied yon, in the solemn
form of law, under pretences the most shallow, it well !
becomes you to assemble, to deliberate, and counsel i
together for your mutual preservation and safety. j
Whatever course the extraordinary events by which I
we are encompassed, will demand or justify, must be j
left, as it should be, to the patriotism, firmness, and
prudence of the people themselves. Upon them de-
volves the duty of repressing present wrongs, and!
providing other safeguards, for future security. Nei -
ther the one nor the other of which, however, will
ever be effectually accomplished, until, by patriotic
enorts, perfect harmony and concord of feeling are
restored, and confidence and concert of action pro
duced among the people of the South.
In view, therefore, of the atrocious free-soil senti
ment and policy, not merely of the non-slaveholding
States, but of the Government of the imminent per
il to which the institution of slavery is reduced by
the act of Congress admitting the State of California
into the Union, with a Constitution containing the
principle ot ihe Wilmot proviso, in defiance of our
warning and earnest remonstrance in view of the
deplorable fact that some diversity of opinion exists
in some of the Southern States to the proper mode
of redressing the wrongs, and averting the dangers
which all must see and feel, let me, fellow-citizens,
earnestly entreat you to cultivate for each other a
deep and abiding sentiment of fraternal regard and
confidence. Approach tho task, from which there is
no escape, of deciding updn your duty to Georgia
and the country, with a firm step, but not without
calm, deliberate, and patent investigation, consulting
neither fears or dangers on the one hand, nor per
mitting yourselves, from exasperated feelingsof wrono
on the other, to be rashly urged to extreme measures
which have not

The General Assembly of this State, by an act ap
proved 8th February 1850, having required me, up
on the happening of certain events, one of which is
the admission of California as a Slate into the Union, i
to issue a proclamation, ordering an election to be
held in each and every county for Delegates to a Con
vention of the People of this State, to take into con
sideration such measures as comport with the extra
ordinary posture of our relations to our co-States,
and to decide upon what steps are necessary and
proper to be taken compatible with our honor and
constitutional obligations, as well as more effectually
to secure our right of property in slaves, and to ar
rest all aggressions, by one section of the Union, up
on the free enjoyment of the Constitutional rights of!
the other, and lastly to preserve inviolate the equal i-
ty ot the states ot the Union, as guarantied under
Therefore, be it known, that I, George W. Towns,
Governor of the State of Georgia, by authority and
mandate of the law, do issue this my Proclamation
ordering and directing that the qualified voters for the
most numerous branch of the General Assembly, do
meet at the several places of holding elections, as
fixed by law, in the several counties of this State,
within the hours fixed for voting, on Monday the
twenty-fifth day of November next; then and there,
by ballot elect two Delegates in each of the counties
now entitled to one of the Representatives in the
General Assembly, and four Delegates in such coun
ties as are now entitled to two Representatives.
The managers of said election are required to cer
tify and foward to this Department the returns of said
election in the manner prescribed by law for the elec
tion of Representatives in the General Assembly
and it is further ordered that the Delegates, who may
be elected by a majority of the legal voters of their
respective counties do convene at the Capitol of said
State on Tuesday the 10th day of December next.
Given under my hand and the Seal of the Executive
Department, at the Capitol in Miiledgeville this

The New York Whig Convention met at Syracuse
. . . . .
on the 25th ultimo. The Seward faction was thought
to be strongest, Mr. Cornwall, one of Seward's
friends, having been appointed temporary Chairman
by a decided majority. The Hon. Washington Hunt
was nominated ifor Governor. The present incumbent,
Hamilton Fish, declined the nomination.
The Baltimore Correspbndent of the Washington

" It will be learned with general regret that the
splendid country seat of the Hon. James Buchanan,
called Wheatland, was yesterday destroyed by fire.
The Philadelphia Pennsylvanian states thatwhen the

names, and there is no doubt of its entire destruction."

LATEST FROM EUROPE.
The mail steamer Niagara arrived at New York,
on the 27th ultimo, bringing Liverpool and London
dates to the 14th September. We subjoin the mar
kets, from which it will be seen that there has been a
further decline in Cotton :
Liverpool Cotton Markkt, Sept. 13. The cot
ton market has ruled dull throughout the week, and
the final quotations to-day show fully d. decline on
fair qualities of Orleans and Mobile and all other d.-.
senptions except lair Uplands, which remain the same
as at the close of last week. Brazil and Egyptian
have also declined d., and dull of sale,
To-day, 13th, the demand is again limited, the trade
buying only for present supply. Sales, including
1,600 bales for export, do not reach over 5.000 bales!
All descriptions of American are offered freely at the
decline noticed, excepting fair Upland. The week's
sales amount to 24.640 bales,
Groceries The market for sugars continues very
firm, and the sales, which consists of G50 hhds. It.
P., and 7,000 bags Bengal, have been at full prices,
Coffee There has been rather more inquiry lor cof-
1 fee, especially the better descriptions, and in some

Naval stores Turpentine was selling at 6s. 6d. per

Nothing done in common qualities.
The political news is not important.
A "Noble Southerner. The Hon. T. L. Cuso
man, of North Carolina, was theonly Southern Whig
who voted nay on the Texas Boundary Bill. While
those to whom the South had entrusted her honcr,
were betraying her all around him, some from timid
ity, some from indifference, and others, in a contemp
tible struggle for party and self, he stood firm, battling
inch by inch, against the inroads of our oppressors.
Honored be the man whose devotion to the South was
proof against treason in all its forms. Honored be
the man who did not forsake his country, when hef
sworn friends were deserting her. He has merited
the gratitude of every true Southern man, for the fear
lessness with which he has maintained his position,
despite the opposition of foes and the perfidy of friends.
His State should be proud to honor such a man. No
bly has he honored his constituency, and there is
! OUttiem Spirit
Southern spirit enough in the old North State to
award him the proper return for
his course. With
I leaders like Cungman
Tho' the scorner may sneer at, and witlings defame her,
Our hearts swell with gladness whenever wc name her.
The foregoing is from the Columbus (Ga.) Sen
tinel, a Democratic paper. Most of the Whig papers
in this State denounce Mr. Clingraan as a " faction
ist" and berate him for his bold and able advocacy of
Southern rights. He receives more credit for his no
ble conduct on this question from the Democrats of
Georgia than he does from the Whig leaders of his
own State. Verily, we have fallen on evil times.

The Baltimore Co-respondent of the Washington
Union says :
" The last concert given by Jenny Lind in New
York is represented to have been more densely attend
ed than any that preceded it, the enthusiasm
and hear her being still on the increase. She makes
her first appearance in Boston to-morrow night, where
she will be equally well received, though there is no
room in that city capable of holding 10,000 persons.
The premium for tickets for the first night in that
cityiaverage about ten dollars and half each the first
brought $650, and the others range from $25 down
Boston, Sept. 25. The prize ticket for Jenny
Lind's first concert, to be given in this city on Friday
evening next, was bought this morning by Mr.
Dodge, the vocalist, for six hundred and twenty-five
The second ticket brought $24; a lotof eight. $10'
each ; fourth, and fifth $10,50 ; and so down to $9,at
which a considerable number was sold ; am1 thence
down to $7 and $6, at which most of the tickets
were purchased ; the lowest prices paid for back
seats in the gallery was $1,50 to $3. The items
will probably amount to $12,000. The competitors
for the first ticket were chiefly booksellers; the hat
ters were decidedly in the back ground. There was
a perfect jam in the hall, and great excitement and
eagerness to obtain tickets.

" The Spanish minister, at the request of Mr. Web
ster, returned last night from New York, antMiad a
long conference with him. The business relates to
Cuba, and we understand that anothor attempt is to be
made on Cuba. The descent is first to be made upon
Hayti, for the overthrow of Faustin Souloaque.
House or Representatives. Yesterday the House
disposed of many important bills and questions. Mr.
Ashmun essayed another effort to restore the princi
ple of protection to tbe revenue system of the umteo
States government in which he was defeated by a ma
jority of sixteen. Some of the warmest protection
istswho have heretofore sustained tbe plan of dona
ting alternate sections of the public domain in aid ot
the construction of railroads through the public lands,
changed upon that question, and brought about the
defeat of two such projects in Missouri.
