Revival. On Friday evening of last
week, Rev. Messrs. Georgeand Christian,
of the Baptist Church, closed a protracted
meeting of about thirteen days' duration.
They had the ministerial assistance of the
Rev. Mr. Smith, of. the Presbyterian
Church, for three or four days, and of the
Rev. J. C. Derrick, of the M. E. Church,
for about two days. The meeting was
kept up both day and night, and was ve
ry generally participated in by all denom
inations, "and the attendance at every hour
appointed for worship, was large and un
usually attentive. Messrs. George and
Christian visited this place, earnestly de
siriog to be instrumental in effecting some
good, and their desire was in a good de
gree gratified. The meeting resulted in
tenor twelve conversions, besides leav
ing a number of very serious individuals,
who had manifested a good deal of inter
est on the subject of religion. On the
last day of the meeting, Rev Mr. George,
assisted by Rev. Mr. Farmer, constituted
the first Church of the Baptist denomina
tion in this place and after duly organi
zing the same, an opportunity was given
for the reception of new members, when
four persons presented themselves, and
upon a relation of their experience, were
received into full fellowship, and were
immersed in the course of the evening.
On Friday evening, Rev. Mr. Chris
tian delivered his farewell sermon to a
very large and attentive audience, in the
course of which he administered some ve
ry wholesome and well-timed admonitions
to the professing portion of the communi
ty which, we presume, they will not very
soon forget. They left this place on last
Saturday morning, amidst a very general
regret on the part of our whole commu
niiy, that they were" unable to prolong
then stay among us.
23Wm. Steel, Esq., 'democratic can
didate for Representative of Greene coun

of eight days. Mr. S. was nominated to
succeed Judge James, w ho was first nom
inated by a Couuty Convention, and who
afterwards accepted an Indian Agency
from the President. A candidate was to
have been brought out on Tuesday to fill
the place of Mr, Steel. Col. Marcus
Boyd is the Whig candidate for represen
tative in Greene. If Col. B. is as clever
a fellow in manhood as he was in days of
old, when we were boys together, the peo
ple of Greene, if they must elect a Whig,
could not elect a cleverer man. '
23"The Western Journal for July was
duly received, nd should have been noti

unusually interesting. We have hereto
fore commended this work to the patron
age of the public, as one better calculated
to furnish them w ith more valuable infor-
motion than any other. It is a work de
signed and well calculated to promote the
interests of the great West, and should be
read generally by the farmers and mechan
ics ef the country. Price $3 00 per an

An apprentice in Philadelphia has been
freed from his indentures, by the Court of

12 That is just exactly as it ought to
Be', and that Philadelphia Court of Ses
sions is just about the most sensible court
we've read of this many a day. Why,
the fellow must be a very Turk indeed,
to require his boys to work on Sundays.
We don't do quite that bad away out here
towards sun-down. If our masters do not
require their boys to work on Sunday,
the example which they set them of hunt
ing and fishing on that day is but one de
gree removed from that offence, end we
would as soon put a boy with one charac
ter as the other.

For the Vwfy
Jhssrs. Editors: I see from the last No.
of the Springfield Advertiser, that I am
charged with having denied making an
anti-war speech at Barry Court-house on
the 31st ultimo, and that I said his corres
pondent had told what was untrue. Per
mit me, Gentlemen, to say through your
valuable paper, that in- both cases I have
been misrepresented in the former, I
may have been misunderstood. When at
Cassville, I was called upon to make some
statement in regard to the origin of the
war.&c, and in the course of my remarks,
alluded to the Fremont expedition, but at
the same time did I emphatically state that
those remarks were made upon my own
responsibility, and should not be made
party issues. When in Springfield, I de
nied making an anti-war speech as con
nected with Gen. .Taylor. Such a course
taken by me, or any other Taylor Elector,
would be inconsistent in he extreme, for
he has emphatically iiid that, in this war
our honor has been vindicated, amply vin
dicated nnd further, that the war lias
ben honorably prosecuted to an honora
ble end, &c, &c.

FROM THE MOUNTAINS.
Hostile Demonstrations of Sioux. Indians
Massacre of a party of Crew Indians by
the Gros De Ventres Mark on the
steamer .Martha by a parly of the Sioux
at Yanclan Post.
The. steamer .Martha arrived, last eve
ning from Fort Union, near the mouth of
the Yellow Stone, which pluce she left on
the 29th of June. Among the passengers
were Mr. J. B. Sarpy and son, Mr. Pit--
utte, lady and daughter, Mr. Frenier, and
Mr. Culbertson. The latter gentleman,
attached to the American Fur Company,
left a trading post called Fort Benton, high
up the Yellow Stone, on the 17th May,
having in charge five Mackinaw boats,
lreighied with robes and furs. Air. L.
informs us that the Indians are very friend
ly towards the whites, but are continually
fighting wit bin themselves. Much dissat
isfaction prevails, and murders are of fre
quent occurrence. A few days previous
In his leaving Fort Benton, a small party
of Crow Indians, who had gone into the
Black lout country for the purpose os steal
ing horse!,' were attacked bv a large body
of the Grosde Ventres of tne plains, and
the whole party sluin. This occurred
near the junction of the Maria and Teton
rivers. The Siotis are mentioned as be
ing the most troublesome, and from all ac
counts, seem determined to subsist by
plundering and murdering other tribes.
The Martha, on her upward trip, was
attacked at Yanclan Post, rn the Sioux
country, by a large parly of Yanclan In
dians, who fired on the boat from the shore,
and, sad to relate, killed a deck hand nam
ed Chas. Smith, a ;ilizen of this place.
The bull that produced his death passed
through the cabin floor and struck its vic
tim on the head, producing almost instant
death. Quite a number of shots were
fired into the boat, and several persons
had very narrow escapes. The Indians,
some 500 in number, were well armed
wiisS guns and knives, and if they had ac
ted with unison and displayed much cour
age, could have captured the boat's crew
wilhou much difficulty. They had been
feasted on the boat during the day, and had
presents of beads and other trinkets made
them. A severe gale of w ind at the lime
af attak prevented Capt. LaBarge from
leaving the shore, and his situation was,
to say the least, very critical ; however,
every preparation made on the boat to
give the Indians a warm reception, should
they attempt to board her or keeb up the
fire from snore.
The Missouritributaries are reported
very low and falling. We are informed
that at no lime this spring has there been
more than a three feet rise In the Missou
ri at the mouth of the Yellow Stone.
The winter was mild. Very little snow
fell in the mountains, and, in consequence,
the streams have been unut.uully low this
season. A'ew Era.
