Y. Mr. Crist was an eminent lawyer,
residing in Brooklyn, and a most esti
mable citizen. Mr. Speep's body was

Baltimore, and M r. Daniel Dorecy, of
New York. An inquest was held over
it, and the following facts elicited:
Walter E. liarding. of 109 Clinton
Place, N. Y., testified:-I knew Mr.
Speed in Baltimore, where he lived;
he was a It eyer between 50 and 60
years old; he was horn in Maryland;
was a passenger in the llenry Clay; he
had no family. I recognize the body;
have no doubt of his identity; lie ap
yet'rs to have been drowned. Ilis body

Mouse, N. x:. I knew Mir. Josd l J.
Speed; I. faist sat; him in New 'ork
about ten days ago, at the Irving House;
r do not know as to his being a passen
;er on board the Clay. Hie had been
*pending sometime at Ithica. I gave him
e $200 for scheck the day before he left.
I expected him home on the day the
steamer was burined. 1 have no doubt
as to this being his body, from the size
of the body and the marks on his
clothes, handkerchiefs, &c.
Wmll. G. Ackerman-1 found a body
Aaving the marks of J. J. Speed on the

Horrible Tragedy in Texas-Murders
and Suicide of the Murderer.
The Red Land Herald published at
St. Augustine, Texas, of the 17th uilt.,
gives the details of one of the most
heart-rending tragedies we have ever
been called upon to record. It occurr
ed a fi'w days since in the Southern
part of Shelby county.
Aquilla and Jesse Ballard, (broth
ers,) were culti vat ing a plantation in
partnership, and their feelings towards
each other had always been of the most
fraternal description. The whole fami
ly consisted of Aquilla Ballard, wife
and child; Mrs. Haynes (sister to Mrs.
1.) and child, and Jesse W. Ballard.
On the 11Ith, (Sunday,) Aquilla Blal
lard rode over to his mother's, a dis
tance of ive niles, to sit up with a
brother who was lying dangerously ill.
Shortly after he left home his brother
Jesse invited Mrs. Ballard to take a
walk with him, saying he had a secret
to toll her. A short distance down the
road they stopped -ome time in deep
and earnest eon versat ion ; Jesse exhi bi
ted considerable excitement. When
they returned to the house Yrs. B.
was pale and melaniiholy, and co.itina
tied so during the rest of the cvini.
Jesse Ballard, however, became unu
sually Ii". .ly :and Nl iritd. Thie Aloi
day niorniig following, Jesse inq1uired
of a neglo boy whether his gun a;
loaded properly. l laving discharged
and reloaded it, he set it against the
side of the house. Soon after he had
another eonference with Mrs. B., when
the latter returned to the house and
told her sister that Jesse was going to
kill the negro boy and then kill her,
A bout this time Jesse called up to
Clara, (Mrs. B.) to colie to hime, but
she refused. Ile again, in a manner
mild with frenzy, called to her, and
comUianded her to come, saying he
had something to tell her. Mrs. 13.
obeyed, approached him and threv her
arms about his neck. Some words
passed hurriedly between them, but
what those words were will only be
known at that day when all things will
be brought to light. As he tore him
self abruptly fron her, she was heard
to exclaim, "Oh, Jesse, don't do it."
Seizing his gun, he aplroached the
kitchen, where the boy Nelson was,
and asked him how he felt. The boy
replied, "better, and would be able to
work in the mar ning."
.1esse told him that he did not wish
hin to work any more, that he was
going to kill him-and, suiting the ac
tion to ,he word, and telling the ne
gro womian to swand out of the way it
she did not wilh to get hurt, he raised
his gun and shot the ,negro dead. At
the tire of the gun, Mrs. 11. cauight
up her child and ran out the opposite
side of the house and hid in the top of
a fIallcn tree. Mrs. lall-id also start,
ed to run, but again returnel to the
house. After shot :tig the negro man
Jesse, with one hand on his lta aii
the other h'd)ing his tu. toied rap
idly on his heel four ,r five lilies,
when, coing to a . t, lhe saw As.

opposite side af thte house. He iue

We said in our last paper that Mr.
Webster had expressed the opinion
that aggressions had been committed
by the Yankee fishermen uponi trie
rights of British Aleriei. We see
that a different version of his opinions
has since 'coine from the Northern
press. Whatever may be his opinion
it is clear that a treaty protects the
British coast for the distance of a mara
time league, and that the Southern
people should take care to avoid i
clash of arins 'with a friendly nation,
and a good customer, even though we
may disappoint the avarice of a while
fleet of codtishing freebooters. There
are many of our Northern brethren
who would rejoice to see the United
States and Great Britian involved in
a war on account of 1te fi:sheries. The
high tariff party would have a pretext
for additional protective duties in rais
ing revenues to defray the expenses
of hostilities-the abolitioniists would
look to the aeqlisit ion of new free-soil
States iii the Conquest of' anadla-Uen
eral Scott would realize his cherished
scheme of annexing the Baitish Amueri
can doiiinions to tie United Stiates
and he withi his whole body of parti
zans and parasites would delight in
thus.building up a perp~et ual asec..d
aney il the North over the doomed
and victimized South.
It is rep~ol ted that our seamen have
gone into the pruhlibited waters to finsh,
and have in a lawless iimnner trespass
ed on the rights of Bri. i:hx suljects by
taking the fiih out of their nets after
they were caught, and by going on
shore and creating disturbances. We
are thus to be brought into IL bloody
and expensive war with a friendiy pow
cr. It'the adininistraltion canl persuade
us that any principle of iniiternationa l
law, or any iipulk of national honor
d ietites ia war for such a cause, the
President and his Ca bi net w ill ell tain
Iy be eititled to 1ll credit ;or dIipAu
macy, and we will :seure for ourselves
at least the crown fur honest credulity
if not the distinctioi~ lopg ears.

inn draws the following strong contrast
between the candidates for President:
Grin. ScO-rT AND GU1. PIza:ce.--We
accord 1tll honor to Gen. Scott as
ia hero; but like Gen. Taylor, who
wits frank and fearless enough to
confess his incapacity for the Pres.
idential chair, we do not believe he
is competent to the duties of the
high station to which lie aspires. Gen
eral Taylor, we had abundant Whig
authority in 18.18 for saying, was
superior to Scott in . many respects,
especiully inl modesty, in prudence,
and in the inantigemetnt of those in
his command. Thence the comparison
is hardly treasurable. Nor will it
be treasurable to say that Gen. Pierce
is a litter man for President, by
ten thousan d times thun Gen. Scott.
The career and the chara'ter of the
Democratic candidate alike and a
bundantly establih this fiet. The
two, however, furnish some strange
Gen. Pierce has modestly refrained
give a few:
Gen. Pierce has nod'estly refrained
froi pressinig himself fhr public
station. Gen. Scott has never been
satisfied, but has always been cry.
ing with the horse-leech, "Give, give,
give," whether of oflice or emolutnent.
Gen. Pierce has repeatedly resigned
high statiois, preterring the quiet of
private life. Gen. Scott has nlever
been satisfied, but, now hold.(, and
doubtless will continue to hold his
I osition as on nnder-in-chief of
the A rely of the United States, ev
cii while the W hig candidate for
Pr esiden t-a positiin woi th, with the
periuisits, amiiount.i to about, ten
th o'usagnd dollcr-s a year.
Gen. Pierce is a singularly un
obtrusiv e, well-baahmced, and well.
discijplined s atesni:ui. (en. Scott is
it vain, ael f-piniOtd, and illy
reguilated1 public rnan.
Gc'n. Pierce, in his whole career,
li never once pandered to ftinaticisn,
whatever shape it assumed. Gen.
Scott was originally for Native Anm
ericanism, and for years past has
given his coinidence to the leaders of
the free soil Whigs.
The contrast 11nay be, and will
be continued hereafter."

SUMrERVILLE, 5th Aug. 1852.
. Messrs. Editors.-Dear Sirs: A
paragraph, which appeared, (without
my knowledge or consent) in the
'Watchman, some two or three weeks
ago, announcing inc as a candidate for
the next Legislature, although discon
tinued, seems to require some notice
at my hands.
Not being ambitious of any political
distinction, and greatly preferring the
ease and quietude of a retired lif-, to
the excitement and anxiety of a politi
cal contest; I return my most sincere
thanks to "Many Citizen," for the
honor intended to be conferred; and I
do hereby -most respectfully decline
the nomination, and positively assure
them, that I am no candidate, never
have been, nor ever ex peet to be.
Yours, most respectfully,
J. M- PI'1'TS.

The schooner " Joseph Tremble," on
Saturday night last, nn her passage
from Conwayboro' with a cargo of
Naval Stores and Staves, bound to
Charleston, when about nine miles
frotn town, in the Waccamaw river,
carne in contact with a snag, which
penetrated the how of the schooner,
causing her to sink imtnediately, crean
ing a little on her side. At noon on
Sunday the sloop " Edwin Forrest"
was cd spatch to her assistance, and sue
ceeded, as we learn, in uprighting the
vessel and getting out a portion of her
cargo. In connection with this.atlhir
we are sorry to be informed that a va
luable negro belonging to Mr. J. izard
Middleton lost his life in endeavorin
to save some article (unknown to us)
frot the cabin of the " Trenmble.'
lie went down some two or three times
without obtaining the object of his
scaci and was finally drowned in t. e
cabin before he could be rescued.

pursued, and the result is satisfactory.

tion of the first ratification meeting
he~d at Tamniny Ifall, which was one
ot a rath~er boisterous kind. 'The meet
ing at New burg was rather tame, 'and
the Lundy's Lane afihir is as flat as
soa a'u r that has ceased to effervesce.
This is not the season to get up the
steam, and the politicians and the

They pile log atter log upon the fir;
but the boilers are leaky, the machine- .

not go ahead. Thaey do not seem t
unlderstandl~ that all the military enithmi
slinm that has ever been generated in
this country, has been preceded b '
some political, social, Ilmancial, or pop'u
lar movement, that stinmulated it into
activity. liut there has been nothing
of this kind to operate now upon-tieo
