in 1838, found it almost concealed
ly brunches widiont a store or mon
umtnl of any kind, and several miles
fiom any house. An old tavern
:and known as Grinder's, once stood
near by, but washing since burned.
The writer gives the follow imr nar
rative of the incidents attending the
death of Capt. Lewis as he received
them from Mrs. Grinder, the lan. da
dy ol the hou-e where iie died in so
strange a manner.
She suid that Mr. Lewis was on
ids way to the city of Washington,
hccompanied by a Mr. i'yrua. and a
Tvant belonging to Major Neeiy.
One evening, a'ittie before sundown
Mr. Lew-s called at her ta.use and
iked for lodgings. Mr. Giindei
not being at !im:, fhu hesitated to
tuke him in. Mr. Irwis informed
i.erthat two other men wuuid be :.
long presentiy, who also wished to
upend the nigiit at her ho':e, and as
they were all -!!l 'in-n, he did
not thin!' there would i "
print' Hi g'Mt! them "c.cfmuioihi
ions lor the n'i:h'.. Mr. Lewis dis
mounted, ;ai-ned l is horsp, t.-n-k f
jieat by the side of the house. a;a
appeared pt;ite soeinble. In a few
imnutes, Mr. I'yrna and the s Tvant
rode up, and seeinc Mr. Lewi, t!ie
lso di.tiiii'jtsted, arid ut up llieii
hoiges. About lrh two or thiee
other men rode up rind called foi
lodging. Mr. Lewis immediately drew
r. biaceof pistols, stepped towards
ihem v.P.A e.h alienee d tiiem to fij.Mii a
due!. They not liking this saluta
tion, rode on to r.ext house, five
ruilrs. This al.trmed Mrs. Grinder
Supper, however, whs ready in a
few mir.utes. Mr. Lewis ate but lit
tle. Ha would strip eating and, sit
if in a deep tud, and several
times exclaimed. "If they do proe
i-uy tiling on me, tliey wi!!ha7' toco
it by letter." Supper being over,and
Mrs. Grimier seeing that Mr. Lewis
was mentally deranged, reque.-drd
Mr. l'yriia to get hm pistols from
him. Mr. 1'. replied, "he has iio amu
lotion, and if he does any mischief,
it will not Le to you or any body
eUe." In a short iime all retired to
ed, the travellers in one room, as
Mrs. G. thought, and she and hei
hildren in another. Two or three
hours before day, Mrs. G. was a
Urmed by the report of a pistol, and
quickiy after two other reports in
lli room where the travellers were.
At the report of the third, she heard
ome one fall and exclaim, K) Lord!
Congress relieve me!'' In a few
minutes she heard some person at
door of the room wheie she lav.
She inquired, "Who is there t" 'Mr.
Iwis spoke and said, "Dear mad
am, be so good as to give me a little
water." lieing afraid to open the
door, she did not give him any.
Presently she heard him fall, and
ioon after looking through a crack
in the wall, she saw him scrablitig a
cross the road on his hands and
After daylight, Mr. I'yrna and the
servant made their appearance, and it
appeared that they had not slept in
the house, but in the stable. Mr. 1
had on the clothes Mr. L. wore when
they came to Mrs. Grinder's the eve
ning before, and Mr. L's gold watch
m his pocekt. Mrs. G. nsked him
wnai ne was doing with Mr. L's
clothes on. Mr. 1. replied, "He
v'ure them '.o me.' Mr. 1 and the
servant searched for Mr. L., found

out, "till how hard it is to die, I am

of many wrongs: a fountain from
which they have been forced to drink
many bitter draughts.
From this cause, measures of poli

destructive to their peace and pr.'g

sisted in to their accomplishments,
with singular pertinacity, by those
from whom they have a right lo ex

therefore, be the aim of those having

public sentiment, as far as possible.

rultished it. Boviinf'Grtm, Jh.
In fckiag charge of the editorial de-
pnrlraent of the "Eanner," we deem
it a duty which we owe to She pubSc,
to jivc an outline of the policy by
which we shall be governed. Demo
crats from childhood, we shall advocate
j the principles of ot:r party, not because.
w e now see tnem triumphant and victo
rious; but because, we believe rhem pe
ca'.iir'.y adApted ta tlie genius of our In
stitutions; and necessary for the perpe
tuity of our Republican government.
In a spirit of manly candor we shall
oppose wlict we deem the political here
sies of our opponents; but we (dial) nev
er descend to low ami persooftl abu- cf
We believe a National Bank unconsti
tutional and inexpedient; and at this time
indeed an "oltoleic i'tiVd.'" We shall
steadily and firmly contend for the re
duction of the TarifFto the Compromise
cf 1S32, believing the present cdions
act peculiarly unjust and unequal in its
bearing upon the different portions of
the confederacy. States-rfcht po!Tti
cians in ll'.e strictest sense of the term,
we shall unceasingly war jgainst the
Distribution act, the Assumption of the
State debts, and every other new-fanat'ed
notion having for its object the creation
among the Si.ites of a fealing of depend
ence upon the ( Jeneral government. A
plain, democratic, economical form of
government, is what we wish to see;
and we shall contend fcr (he exercise by
the Slates of all the rights and powers
nut clearly delegated by t!ie:a throtrh
the constitution to the General govern
ment. - In advance we sny that we shall Le
the advocates of measures, and not of
men; bat we are free to tonfes that we
ever regarded James' K. Polk as
a fit expoiir nt cf (lemocratfc principles;
and shall cheerf.dly jive. our feeble sup
port to his favorite measures: the Inde
pendent Treasury, the regulation cf the
T.irifT, the oei apti.'u of the Oregon, and
lasf, thoiigh nut le4r, the imrr.ctli.de an
nexation of Texas.
In our own .Slate -ve arc aware, that
disccrd ha pervaded our ranks; but we
regard it more r.s the ofi'sirin- of per-
sonal predilection and prejudice, than
I 1 . 1 : n ' 1- 1 m
any real di0erer.ee of principle. Tke
union of our party entire, is our most
cherished wish. We are all brothers
advocating a common cause upon which
may depend ihe perpetuity of our insti
tutions. "Measures, not men; princi
ples, not expediency," is our motto; and
guided by that glorious motto, we sbsjll
endeavor to p-ir oil on the troubled
waves cf faction.
