The thieving propensities of the Mcs

have no doubt it has fixed the idea in
his mind clear as mud! that we should
steal for a living, rathtr than charge the
county a fair price for the county prin

say that the people of Vinton county
will sustain us: because we are honest,
and all we regret in this connection, is
that the said correspondent is not honest
nor truthful. Wonder it he would like
to have a lew of his acts published?

if the Biped who subscribes himseli

down the Democratic Press? That lie
is a Federal Know Nothing, dyed in

cowardly, skulking dog, his course has
proved. Citizens of AlcAttliur, with

acM not principles of the party not
exactly coming uu to my notion of
things, I became dissatisfied. I was
ready lor anything that promised what
1 wag pleased to call reform." About
this time the Know Nothings, or Union
Savers, came into notice. I read and
heard a crest deal about them, until 1
was almost persuaded to join in with the
affair. It was to ut a parly w hich was
to put down oflice-seekers, renovate the
lody politic, put a slop 10 abuses, and
in a xtord, "clean things up hansomely.
This doctrine just suited me, and in a
thuuuhtless moment, I told a certain
hardware" in mi of our tilage Mr. S.
that I would try the Know Nothings,
as they are called, I was assured bjr
him that it was "0. K." and he invited
me to go to Dayton tube initiated in
organization. Having business with
Messrs. Loo mis li Co , he said it would
be a handy matter to fix me up, as the
Council. No. 12 , to which ha belonged
was held in the garret over the hard

move, another one was easier to take,
and I "pitched in.',

I had, to my shame taken a step from
political rectitude, I could not take the
despicable oath of Know Nothingism,
although I seemingly acquiesced It is
hardly necessary for me to say that the

Great Loss of Life!!
SENTINEL OFFICE, Vicksburgh, March 25.
The Memphis and New Orleani pack
el Bulletin, Cpl. C. B. Church, whilst
on her downward trip, and near islands
96 and 97, look fire on Saturday alter
noon, about 4o'clnck, and was totally
consumed. In addition to tha destruc
tion of the boat, wa regret to have to
record a great loss of iifo. The fire was
first discovered, in the third or fourth
tier of cotton from above ant in less
than five minutes, so rapidly did it ex
tend, that' the boat was almost entirely
euveloped in flan.es.
Below will be found the proceedings
of a meeting of the passengers, which
contain a full account of this sad casual
ty. The books and a greater part of the
papers belonging to the boat, were des-j
troyed, together with the baggage of the
passengers.
FULL PARTICULARS—MEETING OF THE PASSENGERS.
At a meeting of the surviving passen
gers of the ill- fated Buleten, Gen. Wni.
Virk, of Uollivar county, Miss., wascal
led to the Chair, and J. M. Craig, of Chi
cot county, Arkansas, and was chosen
Secie'.ary, whereupon the following pro
ceedings and statements were had: The
boat was found to be on Are when near
the Islands (JG and 97, about four and a
half o'clock, P. M., the wind at the
lime blowing hard. Capt. C. B, Church.
gave the order to make the shore aa soon
as possible Mr. W. J. Millet, ihe pi
lot at the wheel, stood firmly at his post
until the boat struck ihe shore, and then
made his escape from the flames by
jumping oil the hurricane loof f t the
stern of the boat into the ri-er. He ex
ercised aa well fine judgment in the se
lection of a point at which to reach the
land, at or before which the bust was
eucompas-ed in flames, having on board
about 600 bales of cotton.
Some of the passeuge.a succeeded in
jumping on shore from the forecastle.
but tha large majority were cut rT from
their escape fonva.il, by the flames, be
ing in the river part of the boat. Ca pt.
C B Church, together with Messrs.
Freleigh, Porter and Robinson, clerks,
Mr. Brown, the mate, as well as all the
other officers of the boat, worked viih
faithful fidelity in saving the passen
gers from a watery grave. Capt. Church
with Mr. James Howard, tho steward,
were the last to leave tha wreck, and
aftei rendering every assistance possible
in his power to others, jumped into the
river at a distance of some two or three
hundred yards from the shore, and but
for the timely aid rendered him by a
skill' going to his rescue, was in great
danger ol losing his own life.
This ill fated accident occurred near
the landing of Dr. Keeue, go me 12 miles
below Lake Providence, at whose house
as well as that of Judjo Morgan, every
comfort was rendered to the pa6seniters
under their hospitable roofs. During
the scene of danger, very great assif-
tance was rendered by the limely aid of
the o liners of the steamer Falcon, by
picking up, by means oi her small boats
many persor.s who were struggling in the
river, bul for which the number of lives
lost would have been much larger.
Great assistance fas also rendered to
the sufferers by the captain and crew
of a coal boat, which was floating in the
river near by, whose names we have uol
the pleasure to know.
The number of missing, as near as
can be ascertained, is from twenty to
twenty-five persons. The lady passen
gers, by means of life boats and cotton
bales, were all saved, for which we as
cribe great credit to Capt. Church The
boat, cargo, and baggage are a total lo6S.
The wreck floated down five or six miles
grounded and sunk. We are pleased to
lesrn that Capt. Church has insurance on
his boat to the amount of 20, COO.
Upon motion, it waa resolved that
the Vickhurg, New Orleans, and Mem-
phis papers be requested to publish iheselor
proceedings, together with a list of the
saved aud missing.
Upou motion the meeting adjourned.

The Murderous Triangle.
The pavements of our city, especially
tha corners of our 6lreel3, were found
lo be thickly strewn yesteiday morning
with the Murdtrout Red Triangle pei-
ces ol paper used by the Know Nolhine
Councils, and distributed at midnight
when honest men are in their slumbers.
These red triangles are warning! of
danger; every Know Nothing is, upon
their appearance upon the corners of
streets and alleys, to rush to his Coun
cil ARMED FOR DEFENCE EVEN TO
MURDER.
Night oefore last Ihe K. N.'s had a
large meeting at the Shanghai Lodge in
this city sentinels were pacing the
pavement in front of the Council, urg
ing up every follower of the clans. We
have not understood the design of this
sudden movement, hut it is reported
that MEN and ARMS were lo be sent lo
Cincinnati if necessary!
Can these things be and not alarm ev
ery true patr iol for the safety ol our .ree

Great Victories over the Know
Nothings.
In Dayton, we are glad to learn, the
Know Nothings are svept from nearly
every otnee.
Chillicothe has done ihe same-
We learn, also, that Sakduskt City
has done the same thing.
These are prophetic signs.

Know Nothing majority, is brought

are encouraging limes.

Are We to have War with Spain.
From the language of the Washington
rt9Mof the 7th init , we are of the
opiuioa that the Cabinet at Washington
adpreheuds that our difficulties with the
Cuban authorities may involve' us la a
war with Spain in very short time.
If so, we hope that there will be ample
preparation made to meet itat the drsl
onset, aa becomes the occasion. A pro
tracted war at our expense will be whol
ly unnecessary. Cuba in our possassiou,
and Spain could give us very little troub
le. Without it, we should be placed in
the same category we were in, while in
the war with Mexico. Had our arm
pushed lo the city of Mexico and taken
possession of the capitol, the war would
Iroin that bour have been at an end, so
far as fighting waa coucerned. With
Cuba in our possession, we would com
maud the whole Gulf, and all other na
vies would be driven from it except our
own, ana there would leaiiy De au euu
of the war. While Cuba is iu the pos
session of any European Government,
we shall uever have peace for our com
merce in the Gulf,
li lakes no prophetic eye Ij see this,
and the soonr an end is put to the lur
moil, insults and diplomacy in that Is
land, the belter. It there is an occasion
for war, no time should be lost in meet
ing it, and not an hour's unnecessary de
lay in taking possession ef that lslaud.
Without it, we might have trouble en
oug and a piotracted wai. With it,
we would not be assailed wilh impunity,
aud no European Govermeul coulii stand
a protracted war ou this side ol the At
lantic, and mere especially Spain. Cu
ba in our possession, and ntgoiiatious
would be easy, without it our Govern
ment could not honorably negoliute al
all, Shu would be in a worse fix than
the allied nations before Sebastopol,
wilh a peace Congress at Vienna,
If we are about getting into a war
wi'.h Spain, and suiel) there are reasons
enough lot it, ui us not dull into it by
degrees, as though it were a necessity
wilh us but lei the work be done as by a
