KNOXVILLE, TENN. : WEDNESDAY. SEPTEMBER S, IS75.

Nashvillk, Aug. 31, 11:30 v. m.
The two Democratic dailies of this city,
the Union and American iin.l Banner,
were consolidated 19-dnjr nt one o'clock,
after protracted negotiations ei'i-nding
over several weeks. Though business is
dull, it is understood that was not the im
pelling motive; l.ut deliberate business
economy nnd extraneous infliieuc;) in be
half of political harmony inspired tho con
solidation. Economy and contraction bring
the order of the day, the Nashville
dailies set an example that their Sonihern
contemporaries might copy to iheir mutual
advantage and profit, and to the actual
benefit and convenience of the reading and
advertising community, acting upon the
principle that fewer and faster presses can
not only supply tho demands of the public,
but to do so more satisfactorily.
The new daily will tuko tho name of the
American, nnd enlarge to nino columns,
issuing also tri-wookly, semi-weekly and
weekly edition. Its publishers have se
lected the building Oil Church street, near
the Maxwell House, heretofore occupied by
the Union and American Company. The
American will follow in the line of its
predecessor as an exponent of the Demc
crtb sontiments of the State. The corn
hired capital, capacity, energy and circula
tion of the two venerable journals makes a
s;rong team, and as at present organiied, it
ought to become the best paying newspaper
stock in the South.

VlCKSBTJBO, M'B8., Bept. 6. An extra
dilloa of the Herald gives tha f .Mowing
aooount of the disturbance ai Clin.
ton. The oriein and particulars or the riot
at Clinton on Saturday evening have been I yesterday morning, and messages were
variously slated. After bearing nil the
statements we think tho following about
correct. There is a lnw prohibiting the
sale of liquor in Clinton, somn young men
from Raymond, brought a bottle with thorn
and while the speaking was coinir on Mnr-
tin Sivelcy and some of his friends went off
a short distnnc" to take a drink.
Tha colored Marshal for the occasion ap.
proached thnm and forbade iheir drinking
This order was not regarded and while the
Marshal attempted to take the bottle out nf
Sivelcy 'e hand tiiveley struck him over the
head with it. Senator Coldwcll, colored,
started to settlo the difficulty and was fol
lowed by some twenty negroes, whom he
ordered back, but about one bun Ired inure
came following on. Some one 'ired a shut
which was followed by a genera! lirin- ne 1
a stampede. SiV. ley'tire.l all the harm, i ,

his surrender, liu surrendered and gave
up his pistol, afler which be was shot and
his brains knocked out. lie was then rob- I
bed of his clothing and a linger was cut ot!' 1
in order to get hi run:.
The infuriated mob found Charfes Ciiil-
ton in his yard, and shot, nnd killed him in
the presence of his family. Frank Thom
assnn, a promising young lawyer, was shut
from his horse, a mile aula half from the
scene of the emtlict, and after falling
the savages drjve their knives into him
in many places. John .Seal was fatally
shot in the left lung in tho town, and
Wndily Hire seriously in the hand. Four
negroes were found on the Held nnd two
mortally wounded. S x additional negroes
have been found dead iiboui Clinton since.
The while men of Clinton were organiz
ed at onco lor protection, under Col. Hard
ing, and telegrams were sent bete for as
sistance In fifteen minutes after the re
ceipt of the first dispatch, one hundred nnd
fifty men were ready to march and took a
special train, which reached Clinton at 7
o'clock. About 10 o'clock more reinforce
ments came from Jackson. The roads were
picketed during the night, but all danger
being apparently over, most of tho citizens
returned to their homes at Vicksburg leav
ing thirty men on guard under ("apt. V. H.
Andrews. Capt. Andrews returned with
the men this a. and reports all now
quiet at Clinton and Kdwards. The train
from Jackson Saturday niuht, with rein,

(ireen wicli. in relation lo the fate of
Willi am Moriran. whose Miitnifun..!
abduction nnd murder by the Masonic
fraternity in 18J0 caused' great excite

a great degree, but lm an excellent
memory, us the lollowlng facts will
prove. He read Mr. Muster's coinmu
mention, and, because it .allied ex
actly with knowledge possessed by
him and might aid in st illing a long
mooted question, he has consented to
tlie publication of his statement. He
was a sailor in LSoO. and in tin- month
of February was mi board the United
iiiHii-of.war Java then at
Smyrna Asia Minor, lie, with 200
"tliers, bad been transferred from the
Delaware, on which vessel he shipped,
to the Java, when the Delaware was
ordered home, and his vessel had re
mained Li Asiatic waftrs nil winter.
Frequent excursions were of course
made to the shore, but it was not until
on or about theOth of February, 1830,
that thesecond cutter, of w hich he was
one of the crew, was ordered by the
commandant, Capt. Skinner, to go
ashore with some of the officers.

can, wearing the habiliments of
Turk, appeared to meet them. He
conversed with the iitlU-ers, hut Mr.
Hitchcock heard him admit that bis
name was Morgan, and that be was
the persnn whose disappearance had
created such excitement in America.
He appeared to be in good circumstan
ces und contented with his life. He
was asked to noon board the Java but
refused, altlioiiKli lie promised to go on
board at some future time. That time
never came, however, for during the
stay of Java at that place Morgan
could not be persuaded to leave the

no one believed him. He is convinced
that William Morgan, was the man

The cap'aiu says he is a disinteres

has no interest in the matter except to
lay the truth before the nubile. M
distinctly remembers the date of the
occurrence, fixing it by the lime of the
destruction o tne man or war Hornet,

ork, which occurred one year after
he saw Morgan.
H the siaieinent of Captain Masters

truth, and 110 evidence has ever been
adduced lo contradict them, then the
question of the Morgan mystery must
be considered as definitely settled, the
