The telegraph announced a few days ajro,
fie reginning of Fetioos troubles with the
Mormons, in the destruction by them, of gov
eminent trains on the way to U ah. The St.
Loais I2epvtlliean,ot the 11th, has the follow
ing interesting article on the snl ject :
Dipt ly Important fnt lligence hn jut been re
CPived at Fort Leaven worth, by express from Fort
Lrmie, with advices of October 22d Lieut Col.
Cooke's command of 2d Dragoons were four mile
tHs fide, and had encountered a enow storm fire
days previously. Col. Albert S. Johnaton wan lust

Mm. Owing to the slim supply of enrn, and entire
absence of trasp, the teams of the entire command
and the horse.) cf the 2d Dragoons w-re failing
rapidly.
News had reached Liramie that the Mormons
had burnt three government traina (eventv-five
wagons) near Green river, riiD' ty mh lehind Col.
Alexander's command, (10 h Infantry) which ron
etituted the van guard of the army. It was ru
mored that the 10th and 5th Infantry and the But
teries of Artill-ry would go over and tnke possee
eion of a Mormon village on Bear rivf r, for winter
quarters. It is sai l ihat the Dragoons bad a month's
supply of corn, at half allowance, and not a parti
cle of t rass. With snow on the ground at that, it
86' run like maln'S9 for them to proceed beyond
Larami. Cf rtaiuly such a step could only be justl
fiei in view of the prospect of actual hostilities
h winter, of which no one at this distance can
Jvide.
There wag probably never before, any portion of
our army eul.ji ci to such privations and to whom
the future pra- ct such a gloomy pieture an is the
case at present with the "Army for Utah." And
it can be said without disparagement to others,
that no portion of our army could have been better
selected to battle with the hardnl ips of a cam
paign, which more than all oth- rs proves the sol
dier, than the '-Army for Utih.n The Command r.
Col. Albert 8. Johnson, of the 21 Cavalry, stands
among the first in ability in the army, with the in
defatigable Maj Fitzjohn Porter at I is elbow. Un
der bis command, an J emulating him iu the patriotic
real of wairior?, are the respective commanders of
the 10th Infantry, Col. Alexander, and the 6th In
fantry, Lieut. Col. Waite, while the trying duty
the almost hopeless task of conducting the "rear
guard" (the six companies of 21 Dragoons) through
a snowy path to its distant goal, n-sts with Lieut.
Col. Cooke. No one familiar with the operations
of our army for the last twenty-years, will fear that
any of these officers will prove n errant to the im
porta nt trusts cobfided to them. We may rest as
sured that, if upon Col. Johnt-toti'n arrival on the
Terge of th Salt Like Valley, circumstances urge
the propriety of immediate action, cflvnaively, to
wards the Mormon", it vill be done with a bold and
decisive ban Certainly no act is better calcula
ted to hasten the inevitable doom of Mormonism.
than this attempt, on their part, to destror the army
eur plies. Nothing should shield them from th I
juok rririuuuon 01 an outraged government.
We doubt if Col. Johnston will be able, when
his whole force is concentrated, to muster over one
thoupaud men for duty. Such an army so far from
the base-line, is too email to cope long with vigor
ous reaidUiice.
Itlurderoim Affray in Trxaii
A letter from lluutsville, TVxas, to tho Galveston
Civilian giv s the fallowing account of a murder
ous affray in Uuntsville on the afternoon of the
26th ult:
The parties immediately concerned were two
young men, brothers, by the name of Cox, and
their step-father, Mr Wm. Leach. It appears that
a family quarrel had been brewing for Fome years;
and that Mr. Leach, preparatory to a contemplated
divorce from bis wife, the mother of the young
Cox. 8, had left home and tiken op his abode near
Iluntaville. On the day above mentioned, how
ever, as Mr. Leach was sitting on a goods box, at
the corner of Mr. Smith's store, the two brothers
approached him; when within striking distance the
cider cf the twain, Taylor Cox, as-aulted Leach
with hu cane. Leach and the younger Cox, Isaae,
then drew thi ir "r volvers" and tho firing com
menced almost simultaneously, young Cox, howev
er, according t the testimony of the by-standera,
firing a little in advance of Leacb. Some say that
"eix," others that "seven" shots were exchanged,
five of whicb were from Lach's pistol, only the ,
two last of whicb took fleet ; the first in the fore-
head of Isaac at the distance of thirty four yards,
killing him instantly, the other in the lower part of
the back of Taylor Cox, most seriously endanger
ing his life.
Leach received only a flesh wound in the muscle
of tiis left arm, from the revolver of Isaac Cox, a'
it appears that his brother Taylor bad no weapon,
save the cane with which he first struck Leach.
This sad occurrence has cast a gloom over the en
tire community. The Dietrict Court ia now in ses
sion, and it ia thought that Leacb will demand a
trial.
The Hog- market.
Thoogh the weather is favorable, and slaughter
ing has commenced, about 6,000 head having been
killed Monday and yesterday, the market for bogs
dontinuea very doll, and little or no disposition
manifested to operate. About 1,600 besd were
bought Monday at (5 25 to fill contracts made in

sales to packer. Some of them are willing to pay
f 5 00, though itia quite probable if owner show d
a disposition to sell freely at this rate, buy- ra

tainty xiM8 in tbe minds of operators, regarding
tho future of the mark' t, that the most shrewd feel
at a loss bow to act, or by what means to arrive at
a conclusion regarding what is really a safe price.
It is now clear that pork packing will be coucen

If there could be found in American society,
a person closely resembling M'ms Flora Mo
riimsey, and if her character and career could
be watched closely and critically, she would
flonbtless develope into very uiuch such a
person as Mrs. Caroline Woodman. Dress and
men's admiration were the two greatest ob
jects of her lif. In the pursuit of them she
sacrificed every thing, and the wreck of Ler
honor and her health should be a leeson to
any weak-minded woman who may have be
gun life with idea similar to her. There
could be no more solemn lesson administered
to young girls than that contained in the
deplorable Darrative she gives in the affidavit
lately made public. Such abject degradation,
such humiliating blavery to the destroyer of
her honor and happiness, were probably never
confessed by any other woman in the world.
The little traits of this lady'a character are
gradually oomingto the light since she has be
come the hero of a shameful drama. Many
tersons recognize in Iter a lady who hs been
nown at the hishiouable watering places for
the immensity of her wardrobe. One describes
her as 44 the lndy with soventy-rive drees."
Another speaK of her as having "thirty
trunks and a new dinner dress for every day
of the etaaon." Passengers who came over in
the steamer Arago iu September, 1S55, discov
er that the heroine of San ford Hall and the
2w York Hotel was a fallow-passenger, and
they remember the tall, slender figure, the
fretful, discontented countenance, the rather
familiar manner, the Idle conversation and
the snubbing remarks to her husband, that at
tracted more notioe than admiration. Some
of them remember bow she talked of her
score of hnge Paria travelling chests, her four
teen Paris bonnets, and the multiplicity of
article proper for a lady with Nothing to
Wear," which had to paaa the ordeal of the
New York Custom Uoue officers.
We rejoice to be able to eay, iu spite of the
remarks of a very vulgar auunymou uglhh
lady correspondent, who lias been ofortunaie
as never to get into the society of respectable
American ladies, that Mtf. Woodman I tbe
only American woman we know of who ful

- TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 17,1357.
Operations of th Tennessee Pculten
Mary. '
We have received the Report of the
Agent of the Penitentiary from which we
condense the following facts. They show
the institution in a flourishing condition.
The aggregate business of the Penitentiary
for the past two years, ending on the 30th
September, 1857, foots up the sera of $218,
879.86. "Work done on the State Capitol
by the convicts amounts, during the two
years, to $51,970. The cash transactions
including the amount received from the
Commissioners of the State Capitol and
appropriations by the Legislature, sum up
$134,059.92 $91,096.56 of which was re
ceived from current gales and collections
from;the 30th Sept. 1855, to same data 1857.
The whole amount of manufactures, sold for
cash, on credit, and for the Prison itself is
$184,026.95. The present indebtedness of
the Penitentiary i $15,385.54 its availa
ble assets $50,849.73 showing a net bal
ance in its favor of $35,464.19 which may
be set down as the net profits of the insti
tution for two years. . There is a further
balance due the Prison on the old books,
bad and suspended debts, which it is im
probable will ever be collected. This
shows the financial concerns of the Peniten
tiary to be in a healthy condition. And
the Agent predicts that the profits will
hereafter be increased. The number of
convicts in confinement at the date of the
last report was 240 admitted since 197
discharged by expiration of sentence, par
don and death 150, escaped I leaving still
in confinement on the 30th Sept. last 2S6.
Gov. Johnson pardoned 21; the President
3 and 16 died.
Of those now in prison Davidson county
has a representation of 31, Shelby 50,
Stewart 10, and the remaining counties
each a smaller nnmber. Of the occupa
tions before conviction there were 10 farm
ers 81 laborers 105 no occupation 14
blacksmiths 15 shoe-makers, and 12 car
penters of other trades 5 and under.
There were 13 sentenced for murder in the
first degree 39 for murder in the second
degree 5 for manslaughter 13 for assault
with intent to kill 16 for horse stealing
6 for negro stealing 8 for arson 5 for
passing counterfeit money 5 for rape
9 for false pretences 5 for malicious
shooting 125 for grand and petit lar
ceny and less numbers for other crimes
The ages of the convicts range from
15 to 70 years the largest proportion
being from 20 to 30. There were mar
ried and widowed 162 nevermarried 124.
There are who can neither read nor write
56 who can read 78 with common school
education 148 classical education 4.
There ore who were temperate 33 mode
rate drinkers 128 intemperate 125 hav
ing intemperate parents 91.
The Chaplain, in his report says that,
" the history of Penitentiaries forbids us to
hope that they will ever become schools of
reform for the unfortunate, the ignorant
and the vicions ; their tendency being rath
er to render vice inveterate and crime con
tagious, by associating the depraved to
gether in masses the combustible elements
thus becoming more explosive by contact
and compression." But he tells us that of
the whole number now in prison, 39 pro
fess to be sincerely religious, 31 of Hint,
number having made that profession siuce
their imprisonment. He also says that
most of the convicts are in the habit of
paying earnest and serious attention to the
ordinances and services of the Lord's
day.
The Agent states that the grounds kc.
of the Prison are too limited for comfort
and convenience; and that uuder the ex
tension of the city it is brooming a nuisance
to the residents and property holders of
the vicinage, and strongly recommends the
purchase of a new site and the erection of
new buildings, somewhere on the Cumber
land river, three or four miles above the
city. lie states that the present establish
ment can be sold out for nearly enough to
cover the expenses of removal, and thinks
it would subserve the interests of all con
cerned to change the location. The phy
sician, Dr. Robertson, urges this or some
other measure, as a sanitary one.
ESy-The Hon. A. O. Brow.v has been
re-elected Senator from Mississippi. This
is an endorsement by the Legislature of
Mississippi of his views touching alien suf
frage, for the expression of which in the
Senate he was denounced by a portion of
his party.

Deatb of the Artist West, the American
Painter of Lord Byron
Mr. Wm. E. West rfied in Nashville, Tenn., o'
the 2d inst 'Mr. West -ijove1 a wide repaUtion.
Moat of his artist life was spent in Europe, where
he stood at the head cf his prof. sion. He painted
a portrait ol Lord Byron from life, whici is nniver
sully conceded to bp the b-st one in existence, and
which the artist sold for $2,000. He was engage (
np to within thr-e days of hi? deUh, ia pautin .,
portraifs of some of the citizn of Nashville, an
had under way two or three historical pics.
Henry T. Tuckerman in his " Artist Lif-, n
f ktch" of Amrrn Pinter." published Hy th -Appleton
civfn the following interesting remiui:
cenees of Mr. West:
"It w hirtiFtom, wl ile encased upon thep"'
t'ait of Lord Bvron, to leave- Leghorn dailv. eoo
affr mill dav for the port's villa at Montenero, an
applv himself to the oicture for to or three hour .
On one oreision while thni occupied, the servar
announc-id Phellv. who was immedisitelv invited t
enter. At that time he ws almost unknown t
'ame, and the piinter observed Mm in a perfectly
unexicjf rated mood. We therefore listened with
vidity to hi Gr irn-re's'ons. The nay was sul

hr, beardless f ceand Inn? hair, as well a hitlin

hand of Madame Guicioli, after the custom of 'he
conntrv. to his lip, and aesumina an easy postnre,
in-mediately enters d into a livelv conversation with

E' lic beoijrnitT and intelligence were only eh -do'
ed by a certain fadneps, as of one upon whom lif
P'i ssed keetdv. at tou':' inir varianc wirh tb vouth
im'icsted by his cntitour and moveme"t. Enthu
siasm, hoevrr. soon wondir'ullv kindl-'d hiscoun
t nance and quickened hwepeech, as he deciihed,
in the most tivid and elowinz terms, a cave that
he had discovered wt ile coasting alorg the Medi
t'rr-inean the day previous. The description wis
"o eloquent 'lt 1 U auditors ooul I not but share
th d-hiiht of fihi U v, as h- dwelt upon the azure
liuht, the niyeteiious etitranc-, the et ilactites and
transparent w a-r, ami 1 which his boat bd sudden
ly elid-d as if by maL'ic Those acqu .inied with
Mi poetry will r- cognize a favorite subject in thin
eiv"rn t'llk.
What struck Mr. West most forcib y in Shelley':
conversation, was its complete self-forae'fulness.
His consciousness was lost in his theme. In this
reppect he pres nted an entire contrs-t to Byron.
Th. y wer suddenly intcrrnot-d by a wild cry from
the a''joinirir hall. The illustrious sitter hastened
towrds th door at the same moment with Sheliev,
the couitessi pal - and t'-rrified, vainlv entreating
and holding him back. It will be reeuerabered that
Bvron ws- at this period regarded with su-pieion
by the Tuscan Government, and his residence had
been thre.tened with violence by soni-of the lo
cal authorities to whom he had given ofTVnce. Un-d-
r an idea that the disturb ince crew out of thes
rirctirnstances, th whole party enter-d the saloon.
The instant they appeared, a man rushed past, fol
lowed by another with an uplifted dag ( r; the
wmpon graz-'d Byron's cheek, aud at thesL'ht of
blood, his companion, still more alirmed, strove
to d'HS him toward the great staircase. BV.fore
reaching it. Count Gamha, who had heard the tu
mult in his chamber, was seen running down with
half a Hcoreof pistols, which be rii-tributed among
the party. They all ascended and locked th -m-selyes
in a room over the front entrance of the
villa, where a council of war was held Mean
time the house had resumed its wonted Millne s,
and Bvron expressed his determination to explore
the premises. The countess protested with teaia
against the design, and Mr. West wl o as an Am
t rican had nothing to fear from tUe police, and had
lived too s-eluded to be an obj ct of animosity
in order to calm the lady's fears and en-iblo his
friends to solve the mystery, volunteered to reron
noiter. Accordingly, he left the excited group
and defended to the primo piano. It appeared
entirely deserted. He looked into various rooms,
and threaded several corridor, but the echoes of a
c'o-ing door or I is own footsteps alone gave ei -us
of life.. At length he ventured to remove the fas
tenings of the ponderous door, which at the first
alarm had been carefully barricaded. In the mi 1-t
of the weed grown area was kneeling a vill linous
looking but evidently frightened Itali in, with the
moustaches and eye of a I rigand, but the air of a
penitent, vociferating, sticul iting, tearing his
hair, shedding torrents of tears, and invoking eith
er Heaven or some intermediate saint. Our paint
er stepped forth upon the gravel walk and look- d
up to the window. At a more tranquil moment it
wonl I have charmed his artistic perception. By
ron's pal brow. Count Gamba's ardect gaze, his
sister's golden locks, and Suelley's spiritual form,
were there idi clustered together, and each looked
and listened with bewildered attention to the sup
pliant wretch btlow, whom Mr. Westnow approach
ed in the hope of obtaining some k y to the enig
matical Fceue. It was long, however, b lore bis
impassioned volubility could be sooiheil,or bis mor
tal terror quieted. It then appeared that he was a
servant the man who had lushed by them with a
dn?cer and he vowed never to rise from his knees
until his declaration was believed that lie was in
pursuit of one of his fellows who hail grosdy in
jured him, and that he had wounded his uiaat r
quite accidentally, to whom he swore eternal loy
alty and devoted attachment. When Mr. Wst
made all this plaiu to the group at the window, th
tragedy immedi tely becime the richest of comic
ad v. nturi 8 over which to laugh at dinner. But it
was not destined to end without the entrance of
another famous personageon the stage. The uois--cf
a horse's tread near by caused the artist 'O tuin
hi.j eves down the avenue, where he saw a gtntle
mun with an olive complexion and dark, lustrous
eye, seated in aorriage, an glancing from the
window to the still gesticulating servant, ud then
to himself with an expression of a nu-ing wonder
ment. It was L ih Hunt, who h id just arrived
from Englind, thinking at the moment t'iat he had
only coin-' to find Ms long exp ctant po. tic lriend
it) a lunatic asylum. We may imagine, mith such
a series of draraatie incidents, how the breezy eve
ning of thit summer day wjs spent at the Villa
Dupoy.
At tho p- riod when West pairted Byron and the
Countess (iuiccioli, (th engraved copies of whi h
pictures in this country are po-iii. li m-Is upon the
orignaN,) the poet's thoughts were directed toward
America, rie had not then resolved upon his (ire
cian expedition, his sojourn in Itly had In-come
annoviug from various causes, and he was more
than ever disaffected towards his native 1 md. One
of our vessels of war was lying in the harbor of
Leghorn, and among her gallant oflict rs were some
admirers of 'Childe Harold. They t-ought his ac
quaintance and invited him to visit the frigate
When he w-nt on board he received a sdute, and
few compliments ever gratified him so muc . II
had read in some perio'lic-l a review of 'Wirt's Life
O? P-itrii k II enry,' and begged Mr West to procure
a copy of the boon, which he declared one of the
n ot interesting biographies he ever read. One
trjit ol his intercourse ith the artist is i-o tho
roughly characteristic that it deserves mention
As usual, he was very curious to kuw what the
painter thought of him, and finully induced the
litter to eon I 'ss that he uiJ not think bun a happy
man. Byron was eager to ascertain wher-in the
contrary was evident 'I at-ked hi.n,' said Wet-t,
'if he had never observed in little children, after
paroxysms of grief, that they had at intervals a
convulsive or tremulous manner of drawing iu a
long breath. Whenever I had observed this, in per
sons of whatever age, I had always found that it
csiue from sorrow, lis said the thought was new
to him and that tie would mike us - of it.'
"Another interi-sting asociatin of Vr. W si's
fonin residence, ia his visit to Bhjlloti, where he
had been invited to paint Mrs. lleunns. 'There
never was a countenance,' says her sisier, 'more
difficult to lrtmfer to canvass, so varying were its
eiprosiou-, aud so impossible is it to be satisS-d

liues to this portrait, the poetess excUims

lieve Mr. West is the best representative in thi-country.-
' They are of the same fraternity n paint
in"' as Was Gray in poetry, aiming chi fly at hih
finish, and minute iff-ct. exact, d.nnty. and fanci

" It represented the deranged girl on her lonely
vigil on the beach, watching in vain for her Jov. r's

drew general attention to the picure; hia ever

friendship and this was the auspicious commence

cheered by the richest compinionship. U is not
surpri-ing that after an arduous caretrasa portrait

professional success he enjoyed in England, should

"Leaves have ttieir time to fait,
And flowers to wither at the uorthwind's breath ;
And stars to pe , but all,
Thou hai-t ail seasons for thine own, O Death I"
Wiu.nn Thomas Will, A. M , wa born March l'tb.lSCT,
at Newbt-rn, Pula.-ki county, Vs., and d'ed on the morning
Oi the Jth of October, S57; aged 30 years, 0 months aud
l'J days.
Seldom have we been ca'Ied upon to chronicle the death cf
o.ie so gifted, and in whom so many hopes concentrated.
P jsge sing an intellect of very superior order, well cultl
Ti ed ard d'-cipline I, nnited with not le and generous prin
c ples, be was well calculated o be uefd aud happj-. Of
aa ardent temperament und warm attachments; he was in
turn loved with all the f rvency of devo ed fiiendslifp; and
those who knew him well need cot be told that a truer heart
nsver beat in human bosom.
In 1840 l e left b's fa'her's house for Emory and Henry
College, Va., where h- spent t' e next five years, graduat
ing at th it institution, with distinction in S51. Th in-
dtry ami energy wi h which he pursued hi- studies at
College, may be correctly e timated by the proficiency he
n ade in the several b anche of education, and hi nquir
':ig mind, ever thirsting for the stream - of knowledge, led
tJ verv extensiv - reading. lie had acquired and had al
ways at command, a vast fund of ii. formation making him
fie orn iment of many a 8. cial circle, and a most amiablt
and inte es'ing companion.
After a year spent in his native county and among the
f iendsof his youth, he came, in 1S52 to West, Kentucky
rad Tennessee and there -pen' the nex' four years of his
fnort life. While in the West he f Tmed many ardent
f-iend hijis ami the interest they felt in him is sufficiently
tt tested by the letteis of condolence and sympathy recently
rsceivedbyhi afflicted parents ;ind reliti es.
He returned home in 1S6 to recruit his health and ge
tome relaxat on Irom the lnbors he hhd so industriously fol
1 iwed. We tad hoped to see him fjlly re-turcd, but alas!
tur hope were destined to be dashed. "Dttit'i lcea A
ti0 mail-," and the affecti nte son, the accomiilished
fjholii, the devoted friend; is no more. All that love and
f -iend-hip could do, was done to -ave hi-n but in vain ; the
t ie insatiate archer, having drawn his arrow, never put it
i p, until the deed uas done and the victim was no
) lore.
With crushed hopes and bleeding hearts, his f iend fol
1 iwed h m to his last resting place, exclaiming, a? well they
I r'ght, "77i'.v is Vie Uint of firth.'' Bril lant prrpects of
success and happiness seemed jut ahead, but ala-1 "the
1 and of the victo drops in death, at the moment it ex
tended to grasp the prise; ' and he who so recen'ly filled so
I irge a place in mauy a heart, nor occupies a narrow place
i.i the hou e appointed for all the living.
But we sorrow not as those without hope. We believe
lis freed spi 1 is now cn the shores of bliss to be happy
lirecr. Another has entered hi- rest the ties of earth
t-e fevering; the attractions nf heaven are increasing,
lie has lef;
"A name and a fume above the blight,
Ol ear) hly breath,
Beautiful - beautiful and bright
In life and death."
