Garnett Andrews for Governor
of Georgia.
The following comnuinication we
dip from the Star of the Wtst. . The
Ohio Statesman is requested to copy:
"LflttfZf, Walter county, Ca.
Br. Quinby; I am n man who doe
not tltU in politics, nor do I desire
to lon e the subject into the columns ol
(lie Star, )et, if it meets jour appro
bation, I should like for your many
readers to fee the following remarks:
In the year '39 or '40 there was r.
case of murder l-rnuht up foi trial in
i he Superior Court in Oglethorpe coun
ty, Georgia, Garnott Andrews, Judjje
Our present United States Senator,
Hon. Robert Toombs, was counsel for
me deleridnt. A Mr. Bell, his son,
and his son-in-law, were the material
witnesses in the case. They were all
three firm believers in the doctrines ol
UnivertsdliBin, ami all respectable men,
in good standing n society. The couo
m;I, Mr. Toombs, raifed the question,
"whether a man, profewiiisf the Uni
verbalist taith, should be allowed hi
oalh in fc court of justice or not?" and
the aforesaid Jtide Andrews decided
'that he should not." On (his ground
the above uamed witnesses were de
barred from giving testimony, and the
result was, the guilty, or at least the
accused person was set at liberty.
Thecatewas brought up before the
next Li ginlatuiv, and by that body the
decision ot Judge Andrews was pro
nouiiced vnroimtitutionul, at the ex
peiipe'tif ninny dollars lrlhe Sute.
But whether the case was ever tried
ayain in Court ot not, 1 am unable (o
say.
And now, in this enlightened day,
Dr. L. F. W. Andrews, (no relation
of the Judge) editor of the Georgia
f'itizrn, (publibhed in Macon,) and
a prember of our glorious faith, IJni-ven-lifni,reconin!Ci:ds
this same Judge
And:ew as a fuituble man to fill the
executive chair of our Slate. And
inst, but not hast, the "American,"
alias "Know Nothing" jattv, at a
council or convention, recently held in
tnr rity of Macon, for the purpose ol
inniiiiaiinir a suitable man as candidate
lor the tllii e of Governor of the State,
( at our next October election,) have
nominated this same Judge Andrews
as their candidate.
I am informed that this Fame ques
tion or decision of the Judge above
named, was I .rought up in the conven
tion, but thry tried to plnter it up and
smooth it over, by saying that there
u as a statute in the laws of Georgia at
that time, which authorized the Judge
to make the decision he did. Now 1
would thank any member of that Con
i cut ion tojtoi.-if out that law, if it ev
er exiuod, as 1 do not wish to injure
any ht.man bring on caith. But I
must dcliiiii my own rights, and 1 do
believe that Liniversalifts as a class,
and as a denomination, have borne, do
I ear, and are still willing to bear in si
leiue, as much as any other class, or
as can be expected ot human nature :
jet there is a point, even with them,
Le)ond which forbearance ceases to bt
a virtue.
Supposing that there was at that time
a law (which 1 di.ubt) authorizing
(not compelling, Lut leaving it option
ary with tlie Judge in stall cases) to
decide, as did Judge Andrews, or oth
erwise, is there a Universalis!, is there
aiy trvc'heartcd republican, who can
hnd in his heatt to support lor the ol
lice of chief magistrate of the State,
a man who could thus invalidate his
oath, set aside and .trample upon the
dearest and most sacred rights of man?
1, tor one, would notsuppoit my own
brother under such circumstances.
UniversaliMs, as a sect, are as religions,
as pious, as honest and as just as any
other sect in Christendom, in point
ot vntue, good mora!?, ana veracity,
they will lose nothing by comparison
with any denomination of Christian?.
And I would caution Universaluts es
pecially, and all mcu generally, against
putting into oaice. sucu men as the
Judge above named, and. the Hon.
Senator, too, if you please, tor they
are both of the same kidney, it. would
seem, with regard to religious tolerance
and lile;ty ol constieuce. . Acd 1
would say to the Utiiversalists oi
Georgia, "before you cast your' votes
next October, recall some ot the' bloody
tragedies and M enes that have been ex
acted in thef ast uncier Uie lullueuce. ot
the same spirit of intociaut.aGi.-re
ligious prOTcriptioaJ'
I
I would send a copy of this ai tide
to the Herald, Ala., for publication,
but I see'a notice of the subject in that
paper a!rcady,-and it-goes to endorse
the above facts. You can see it, too,
by referring to the number of that pa
per, dated June 22 J, '55r and if you
think proper to publish this article, as
1 hope you may, (or at leait, the. facts
indorsed,) I hope the Heiald will copy
it, that all may see. Justice and fair
play is all I nk. These I consider as
my right, and these I shall contend for
sink or swim while the good Lord
permits me to live, and to retain inj
reason. .' - r.,
, Yours in the faith of the CJofyfl,
JAMES, PARK."
Very Late from Fort Laramie.
SAD NEWS FROM FORT RILEY—DEATH
OF MAJOR OGDEN.
From the St. Louis Republican, Aug. 11.
' Mr. li. F. Majer, who has been
established for years in business at
Fort Larimie, arrived in this city yes
teiday. lie left the Fort on the 16ih
of July. Mr. Miyei represents eve
rything ad qniet in that quarter no
outrage hiving been committed by the
Indians since tlia murder of Captain
Gibson, of which we have uheady
given au account. Mr. Miyer does
not confirm the stories which so oiteu
reach us through other channels, ul
large numbers ol discontented and hos
tile Sioux Indians being colleced on
the route ot the emigrant trains, with
the intention of murdering and robbing,
nor have they assembled at any place
withi.i lis knowledge, to make war
upon the Un'tedStales troops, now
rapidly concentrating in that country
with a view ol compelling the Sioux
to obedience. On his route to Fort
Leavenworth he met no Sioux Indi
ans at all.
Captain Foote's Company of Infan
try had arrived at Fort Laramie. Coi.
Howe's command, consisting of seve
ral companies of dragoons, w as met
fifty miles west ot Fort Kearney, get
ting along finely. The road was iiued
with Russell &. Major's trains, con
veying Government stores' to Fort Lar
amie. They were progiessing well.
From Fort Kiley, tlie new military
post recently established by the Gov
ernment, we have deplorable news.
it will be recollected t fiat (lie Govern
ment determined to make this a prom
iueut j)o,t, on mo Wcaieru border, and
iJnhu'purpose a laigs number of 'me
chanics were employ ed to proceed thith
er and construct additional bai racks
and other houses. On Sunday last au
express reched Fort Leavenworth with
the intelligence that the cholera tad
broken out at Fori liiley in a moit
virulent form, uitdthut meinben had
died evtry day since it made iti up
jearan e. Maj. Ogden, U. S. A.,
and a niosttllicient oliicer, was among
the victims ol tnis scourge. All the
persons about the Fort were panic
Mricken, and fled to tne hills lor re
fuge Irom the pestilence, leaving the
ick to die and the dead unburied.
The mortality is represented to have
heen very ,'reat, one report which we
hope is exaggerated stating that as
many as forty had died in one diy.
By the Polar Star, yesterday, we
received a letter dated at Fort Leaven
woith on the 7th, in which reference is
maue to one written on the previous
day, giving all ttiat was then known ol
the extent ul the ravages ol the pesti
lence. 1 nat letter has- not come to
hand. In the one before us, (he wri
ter says:
"Since my letter ol yesterday morn
ing 1 have learned some further partic
ulars of the .state ot affairs ut Fort
liiley, and I gave them to you as they
are received by persons coming in from
there, one by one. It is to be expec
ted that there is no more cholera at tuat
post, perhaps lor the reason that there
is no victim left in fact, so lar as we
can learn, the post is abandoned, all
who did not die having left panic
stricken. As yet we do not know tiie
exact number of deaths; it is enough
to say that it was awful. Lvst Fn.
day men were offered $10 to (Jij; a
grave, and nobody would do it. The
last man from there, who came in yes
terday evening, says, w hen he felt he
saw four or live dead on the porch,
and no man to bury them.
'Honor to whom honor is due,' gen
tlemen, and I cannot omit to sp-ak ol
one instance of true "COut age," though
you may think it too soon. Mr. J.
O. Sawyer, Architect and Builder, of
St. Louis who went out to Fort Ri
ley with Major Ogden, to superintend
the buildings isthe only man who
kept his place and took charge of all
the public property, and declared- that
he would stav until relieved by a com
missioned officer. I am not able to
describe to you how much everybody
here admires such trusty heroism.
- Our correspondent proceeds to reflYci
very severely upon the conduct of Home
of those in the public service, and
which conduct, it correctly represent
ed, was . highly repreheusible; hut it
may be '.bat, in the flush ot excitement
and alarm caused by the sucldeii ap
pearance ot the pestilence at that ex
posed point, exaggerated stories have
gained currency. At all events we
shall wait for details before passing
c'otidemnatiorvuport men who onght to
have known tfieir duty1 -better and to
have performed at all hazards. ' t

Fight in a Church.
The Gallipo'.is Journal has the fol
lowing local religious intelligence :
The Presbyterian Church in this
place has been in possession of the
Old School body for some weeks pat,
and the New School, thinking they
had occupied the building a sufficient
length of time, on Snlutday evening
last made ai attempt to retake it from
that body. They succeeded in break
ing a panel out of the back door, but
the hole was not sufficiently large to
admit a man's body. It spperrs that
the Old School members were absent
at tlie time, but while Mr. John Smith
ers was endeavoring to elfert an en
trance, Mr, Miller, an outside mem
ber, remonstrated against the proceed
ings, and finally struck Mr. S. a severe
blow on tiie head with his rane. Find
ing an entrance more difficult than
they had imagined, they quietly dis
persed. For the past ten days or tw o
weeks the church has been in charge
of Capt. J. S. Myers. On Sunday
morning, Rev. Warren Taylor, the
New School minister, took occasion
to walk in while the door of the
church was temporarily (brown open,
and ascend (he pul i(. Myers peremp
torily ordered him to leave the house,
but no attention "vas paid to him, when
he repaired to the pulpit and ejected
Mr. T. by lore. Mr. T. offered no
resistance further loan to hold on to a
knob that was attached to an oru anient
of the pulpit, Hiid, breaking his hold of
It, lie tot his balance and Ml over t ie
railing to the floor.striking on his back.
We do not know that he sustained any
serious iniury l ue cliurcli has not
been used for public worship since the
Old School body his had possession
or it. dince tlie dilii -ulty, it is their
delenmuation to keep it closed until a

Rape Casb iDRSTtriCATiow or
the ScncsDiiax. The Pittsburg Post
of tlv? 15t!i inst. his the following:'
"Tho shocking details which we.
gave a few days since of a rape com
niit'.oj upon the person of a young
w hite lady, by a lie-no, r.to still fresh,
in the minds of tur readers. All ef
f'lils to ferret out the black-hearted vil
I wu proved futile until yesterday.--'
Miss Mary Singer, lha unfortunate
victim, had so far recovered yesterday
as to be able to ride up to Mayor Ad
inl's oflice, and give a drscripllon of
tlie sc'cuath'ol.' Sha represent him
is haviitsT Im'J long Lair, whfch curled
around hi neck? tint he vrore spolteU
pann, ana nt she Uaicieu a se?cfo
ratcli on one of his cheeks during
the scuflld. This confirmed the pro
viotjs suspicions of Mavor Adam.
win was almost convinced that tho
ruili in was no other than John Russell,
the bui'ifUr. who Wa3 Clllvlit nn Mia
imiiday morning following ia the act
ol robbing the' dwePing-house of . Mr.
McUreiv, iu 'Alleghany! Oilier Scott
accompanied the lady to the jil yes
terd ty, and reqites'ted' JRa3sel to be bro't
to the 'bars.' 'When his eyes tnetthoso
of thb lady, his countenance ell, and
his powerful frjnie cecnicdlo quake.
The lady became deadly pale, and
exhibited, symptoms of swooning.
5'he was seated iu the Jailor's office,
while High Constable Soott accom
panied the fiendish wretch to his cell.
He made no confession?, but manifes
ted great anxiety to know what the la
dy wanted,. and altogether exhibited
unmistakable evidences of guilt. Miss
Sniger is confident that he is the man.
ISiie stated that he was on hie way to
Alleghany wiien she first saw him;
(hat immediately alter passing her ha
turned and caught, her by tho waist,
when a desperate struggle ensued.
Finding th lady lo mike such nian
ml re.-iitanec, with brutal ferocity h
seized her by the throat, and .with his
nnrclouting grasp choked her until tho
blood oozed from her ears, and lie fell
almost lileless to the ground. The rest
ot the story has already been told, and
we desire not to repeat it."
