Ouemarne was shot. A number of shots were fir-t fired by the rioters, which the marines returned. Six p ’rsons were killed and twelve wounded, a large portion of whom were inno cent people, mere !oykers-ou. The excitement was intense. F.: ally the artillery from Fort M H snry arrived to assist the marines. Threats having been maUc to destroy the houses of the Mayor and Capt.

The Memphis Appeal relates ths following bappv incident in the discussion between Messrs. Harris and 11 ttni at Memphis: “One of the most salient incidents of the la‘e political discussion between the candidates for Governor, in thiscity, arose from the asser tion of Col. Hatton, that for gneis could he led up to the ballot-box like cattle, which he ' til ! ly, he sup|.d, i y read ing from a speech of Gov. Grown, of Missis sippi, a declaration to that effect. Col. Hatton grew piite exultant over the extract from Grown—a democratic Senator—and taunted bis opponent with it in a manner which indicat ed that he thought his illustration was unan swerable. M heti tjcii. 11 oris come to answer the ar gument and illustration, he referred to the . speech of Gov. Grown, and then turning to Col. Hatton, remarked, ‘I would like to see you, ».r, attempt to lead the foreigners up to tue |>olU to voie for you. You would then i learn whether they could lie led or driven like cattle.’ The truth is, continued Gen. H., ‘ it is simply because your party never could lead or drive them, that they have raised all this ex citement against them. Such is the secret of youi opposition to them. The effect was elcc tuc.il—the answer complete.” (gj* L> .

Benton lias iu contemplation the continuance of his “Thirty Years View,” and the work of writing a life of General Jackson. In making this announcement we did not, as “ Vindcx” wildly and unjustly supposes, en dorse “Old Bullion” as a politician, but simply characterised him as a man of “ comprehensive intellect,” and this we believe is universally admitted, notwithstanding his abominable free soil proclivities and bis disgusting egotism, ills “ Thirty Years View” istaken chiefly from I lie congressional debates, and though the old egotist was not unmindful of himself when lie compiled it we do not think it so objectionable ou that account, for surely some good “ran come out of Nazareth." His abuse of John C. Calhoun can never detract from the greatness of the departed statesman, nor harm him in the estimation of the southern people. But, as we before said, we believe that in view of the intimacy “Oi l Bullion” enjoyed with Ge neral Jackson, ami ot his great admiration for him, he could give us, what we have not now, a reliable life of that great man. He has the possession of bis private papers and if he un dertakes the task of writing his life, we believe he will render to him, what “ Viuilex” may not wish to tie done, “ tne tilings that are his.” Vindex being an admire: of J. C.

The ladies, who are ever making im provements upon the antiquated customs and notions of men, gave a soiree, at the building of the Ileal Estate Bank. It was then, to im prove on Byron slightly, that, Little lhs'k hml gathered there Her beauty and her chivalry, and bright The lamp shone o’.-r lair bed s and brave men; Then many hearts lea: luq pih . and when Music rose with its voluptuous swell.

The whole affair was originated and conduct ed by the ladies, and they succeeded of course in rendering it happy, j >yous and pleasant.— It was indeed a “ woman’s right-,’- re-union. Be ing present, we frequently marked the yielding sp rit manifested by our masculine friends when consenting to lai e « 1 the fair a| ; - cants for “partners.” We have no idea that a man of them declined or sought to be ex cused, though we think we observed a few of the more unyielding ones draw luck, as if they had never knelt at the sin.no of beauty, and spp< are I to be im “ the righ man to ask,” when they ought to know that the light is only given him that the ladies may have the privilege of consent.' g or refusing.

The Virginia Elections. As tai'as heard from, the late elections in Virginia have resulted iu a most brilliant and glorious triumph for the democracy. The de mocratic majorities everywhere are running far ahead of those of last year, i'he distribution humbug seems to have served only as an ad ditional weight to sink Know Xothingism still deeper in the lowest dephts of popular con demnation. 05”“ I have found,” says Addison, ‘‘that the men who are really the most fond of the lad es—who cherish for them the highest re spect—are seldom the most popular with the sex. Men of great assurance, whose tongues are lightly hung—who make words supply the place of ideas, and place compliment in the room of sentiment—are their favorites. A due r spect for women leads to respectful action towards them; and respect is'mistaken by them for neglect or want of love.” From tho X. O. Delta. Arrival of Qenetal Walker. Enthusiastic Recaption—Cause of Nicara gua not Abandoned. The telegraphic announcement that General Walker and staff had arrived at the Balize on board the Empire City,yesterday morning, cre ated considerable excitement among our citi zens. Men who had watched with intensest interest the career of the gallant young Amer ican, from the moment he set foot upon the soil of Nicaragua, and saw with alarm the cor don of tire which the chances of war and the beleaguering army of the allied States brought into being, draw closer and closer arouud Ri vas, breathed easier when it was known that the champion of Isthmian Republicanism was safe; and even those who disliked what they conceived to be filihusterism, indulged in some thing of the same feeling. Towaids evening the interest became uni veisal, ami the coming of the steamer was ea gerlv looked for. Evergbody was anxious to see tile man who had linked his fame indisso lubly with the history of Nicaragua, and who won ati exalted name in the annals of heroic warfare when the luminous flashes ol victory shot up from tho sir ■ ‘ts and plazas of Rivas, Massava, and Granada. Long before the expected arrival of the Em pire City at her moorings, the extensive steam ship wharf began to wear a crowded and ani mated aspect. The eager throng hastening from the city, including many of the compan ions-in-arms of \\ alker, and our city authori ties, was a goodly sight on the lauding as the first glimpse of the vessel was seen several miles down the river. in quick time she came around the turn and bore lip towards the wharf, tiling a gun as she ; a&se 1 opposite Ca nal street. The saiute from the guns of the Washington Artillery then commenced and sent its echoes over the waters, and above the dm of the busy city, and to the hearts of the hero and bis comrades, welcoming them as iuave warriors should be welcomed, by the ■ thundering and martial roar of cannon. Presently the proud vessel, borne lightly on the swelling bosom of tho Mississippi, and bearing a nobler freight than ever she did be fore, came slowly towards the wharf, while thousands of eyes were directed toward her in search of the gallant soldier on board.— f in me cheers were given for Walker as the : steamship closed in to her mooring, and then the multitude became hushed in eager expec tation of the appearance of the General on j deck. The crowd w as stilled, but not quiet, for the excitement ot the hundreds who were near the vessel to get on board, if possible, w as I intense. oume iwoorimee sucreeiiea i»v us:n^ noi \ little activity in leaping on a ledge of tins vessel and clirnping on board, but t ie command ol the captain to prevent this mode of getting on tiie vessel, compelled the crowd to await the usual access. It was with considerable diffi culty the gangway was put in its place, and with much greater difficulty tlie rush to the vessel was opposed successfuilv. In tlie mean tone Lite cry of “ Walker” was heard, and looking aloft we beheld the unmistakable form ot him whose name has heeotne a house hold word in the south, and whose deeds have been tlie subject ol Amcncan and Ihiropean conversation, comparatively speaking, as much as any of the great captains of modern time-. Again and again, tie waved Ins hat an 1 lam ed his head in acknowledgment ol the ihun derh gand hearty cheers that greeted him.

In bis calm, earnest manner, and with manly eloquence, he said that it was a proud consolation, after months and years of trial, to experience the approbation that was given to the cause he advocated. It was a triumph greater than arms can ever w in. With such mate testations, it was impossible that t lie cause of Nicaragua could fail, no matUer who were its enemies; no matter how intieii they labored; no matter bow much they willed.

The Mormons—What Shall be done with them? Some of our cotemporaries have been pub lishing long letters dated from Utah and con taining heartrending accounts of the sutlerings inflicted on poor helpless women by the bru tality of the Mormon leaders. It is perhaps as well that the public should know that these letters are made up on this side the Mississip pi, and we have no doubt do more credit to the imagination than to the memory of their wri ters.” No journal has a correspondent in Utah at the present time. It reflects some credit on the ingenuity of our cotemporaries to have be thought themselves of gelling up an excite ment about Utah just as Kansas <1 Led out. Of the facts of the case, in Utah, it is very difficult to form a reliable judgment, simply be cause our most reliable authorities, such as Judge Drummond, now in Washington, are tainted with a suspicion of interested motives. Judge Drummond, we Dear, has no objection to return to Utah Territory as governor, with a proper armed force to avoid his quarrel with the Mormons. Hut it mav he assumed as a fact that the United States authorities have been set at naught there, and that polygamy exists to a certain extent among the leading members of the Mormon government. We have no idea that polygamy is a common institution, or that, as a general thing, the Mormons have more wives than other people. The laws of common sense, economy, anil domestic harmony forbid the general practice of polygamy; even in coun tries like Turkey, Persia, and China, where the civil and religious law upholds polygamy, it is, we know, a rare occurrence. Nor Uo we im agine that any peculiar dispensation of nature enables the Mormons or any considerable por tion of them to live in a manner which exam ple, precept, and desire have proved unable to popularize in the most luxurious oriental coun tries. With this reservation, then, and under standing the [ olygarnic institutions of Utah as being a modern convenience lor the private luxurious uses of Brigham Young and a select few of his associates, we conceive that the case of the Mormons can b; grasped in a very mode rate compass. J here is no authority m the constitution to justify an interference by Congress or the fede ral government with such an institution as po lygamy in a territory. If is as clearly without the pale of Congressional or executive regula tion as slavery; if Congress may not pass a law to govern the one it may not pass a law to go vern the other; if the President cannot interfere to drive slavery out of Kansas, neither can he assume to drive polygamy out of Utah. Mar riage, a civil contract, is essentially subject to the control of local, municipal or civil laws; the federal government has nothing to do with it, and Congress can in die no laws delining its na ture, altering its effect, or prescribing penalties for breaches of its obligations committed by people residing within a let ritory of the United Those, therefore, who assumed that Mr. Buchanan was going to cirry tire and sword among the Mormons because they were poly gamists, and to put down polygamy by force of arms, gave the President very little credit for judgment or knowledge of the instrument un der which he holds hi' powers. But it the Mormons have really rebelled against, the Unite 1 States authorities, violated the United States courts, and expelled the United States .Judge—as we believe there is ! ample evidence that they have done—the U.

The Union says: “It is composed exclusively of elk horns, the largest probably four feet and a half in length, and bolted w ith iron, thus rendering it firm and durable. Composed of such materials, uucur tailed in any of their natural proportions, there are necessarily many sharp points in the appear ance of the article.

B. McCulloch—Land Warrants. From General Order, No. 6, of the General in-chief of the U. S. Army, I gather the fol lowing facts, relative to the movement of the troops west of Arkansas. Fort Gibson will be abandoned without unnecessary delay. The quarter-master’s department will take charge of the public property. Should it be deemed necessary to have temporarily a small guard at the post, the commanding officer at Fort Smith will detach such a guard ou the appli cation of the quarter-master in charge of the property. Of the four companies of the 7th Infantry, now on the Arkansas, two will con stitute the garrison at Fort Smith, one will take post at Ft. Washita, and the fourth at Ft. Arlmckle. The designation of the compai ies will be made by the officer in command of the regiment. The time, manner and route of the movement will be also prescribe 1 by that of ficer. The head quarters of the 7th Infantry will be established at Fort Smith. The junior Major will take post at Ft. Washita. I may also mention that Capt. Montgomery, long and favorably known in Arkansas, lias been ordered to take charge of the quarter master’s office at Fort Smith, and left several weeks since for that place. Besides the Cap tain being the courteous and urbane gentleman and gallant officer, and whom to know is to admire, he is a true democrat in the full sense of the term, and the democrats of Fort Smith will be considerable gainers by his accession to their ranks. The affairs of the Washington national mo nument association is now claiming the atten tion o-f the public mind and a history of the manner in which the acting hoard of managers got possession and have acted, may not prove uninteresting to your numerous readers. The affairs of the association are controlled hy a hoard of managers, elected by its mem bers, each person upou subscribe g one dollar becoming a member and entitled to vote for tnemheis of the board. In February, 1855, one year previous to the time prescribed by the constitution for the election of the board, an election was he! 1 hy the secretary of the asso ciation for a new board, when some four hun dred votes were received, as the secretary said, upon ccrt’.iieutes of membership then but re cently issued, and for which it is alledged not one dollar was (paid into the treasury. I'p to that time the board had been selected irrespec tive of partv, and consisted of men ot standing in the community ami country. The cm ti dence reposed in them had t ot been misplaced or abused and the monument under their ma nagement was progressing as rapidly as the finances of the association would permit. N' t a wool of complaint Inn! been ra sed agaii -t the management of the b i.ird, and a key t<> this Know Nothing movement is found in the fact that On gre-s, upon the memorial of the hoard, from its confidence in its worth, was about ap propriating by joint resolution NX) to he paid to them to prosecute '.lie work. It was to get their fingers into this nice little sum, hut their action defeated the appropriation. In 1851, Know Xoihingisin sprang into ex istence, and as that party claim 1 all the pa triotism not to say wortli in the land, its leaders went to work to get control of the monument affairs—ami to them, nm.-t important item, its funds—and succeded in inducing the clerk of tire hoard, who was of their party, to publish i:i tile c:tv press notice of the election of anew hoard, being as before stated one year in ad vance of the time prescribed by the constitu tion. As such notice was dcctm-d altogether as innovati n, without collar of authority, the then existing hoard took no notice of it, he lm'. g at ti.c t.me, as they hcl'l poss’ s > ■, ai. 1 would only he legally displaced hvthe inriov . tors, il at all, were willing to let the matter r-at with the courts. Hut the Know Noth ii g.«, with tln-ir four hundred tew v -tors, ttpo certifi' ales of membership issued in violation of the constitution of the association, as it is charged not one dollar hav.ng been paid ii.t > the treasury for them, held an elect m u.d formed a board belonging exclusively to tin party, a . 1 sdeeled men rog.r Ih-ss of tin r si.m hug in society, their capability to adminis ter till1 affairs of t II• ■ association, and in sonic instances, luck i ng the coliti l ■ nee o| the pit hi ic— hut, thev all belonged to the secret nwler—i gr at ill's. 1 ratum is the i' novators a . 1 C"rm - rat ts who assisted in the outrage professed t" believe. When this self-styled hoard was elected, the legal hoard having possession, which “being nine points of the law,” placed the interlopers in a difficult position. As possession, and im mediate possession was their sole aim—the oh; board feeling secure in their righis gave them notice that in order to have the courts settle tin- difficulty and decide w hich party w as le gally the board, they would at once, after dm public notice, proceed to sell at public vendue soni" of the property belonging t- the associa tion, which hy legal process they could re strain them from doing; thus bringing the pies tion before the tribunals of the ciuntry, and they would he satisfied with, and willing to abide their decision. Hut the new hoard, well knowing the untenable p >sition occupied by them, did not accept of this fair and just pto position, and suffered the property to be sold wi'h nit any action. Hut in a few days a motely crowd of “intense Americans” went to the monument grounds, ouUod those iti charge and placed in possession the appointees of the new ] board. The constitution provides for the election of the hoard of managers at the annual election in February, arid this board bv their subsequent action admitted that they had usurped power. At the annual meeting in February, 185fi, without giving notice in the public press as re quired by th(! constitution, a member rose from his seat and stated as their election seemed to be questioned he would suggest that an elec tion ho liehl then, which was accordingly done, ami the usurpers retained. No mention is made of how many members of the associ ation voted on that occasion, or whether in fact any were present and voted, as the board do everything in secret, and only let the public know what they desired. It is now under stood that they claim authority under this last election, held as it was without the notice re quired and defective in all its particulars. When this Know Nothing hoard got into possession it proclaimed to tire outside world with a great flourish of trumpets that it would complete the monument within a year and a half, by means of assessments on the members of the American order, and if it did not, the verdict of the pubhe was invited against them. They did not ask for contributions—so “ in tense Americanism” gassed—outside of tiie order, in fact rather intimated they would not be acceptable, as none but Know Nothings were possessed of sutlicient patriotism to be worthy of contributing. It was slyly intimat ed by some maliciously disposed persous that this was a dig at Congress for refusing to pass the appropriation, which it did as soon as they took possession. Well perhaps the grapes were sour—but “they do say,” ^Nntributions have not been refused on this ^Rnid. but have been secured from outsider-,^<>t even except ing the “flat-footed Dutch” and the “ Irish Catholic,” tiie same evil-disposed persons con tending they have done so upon the principle of “ quartering on the enemy,” as it is charged, all the funds received, have been used in giv ing aid and comfort to the Know Nothing party here. Well, after these (laming promises the Know Nothing board went to work—not to complete the monument—and created any amount of fat-salaried offices for the benelit of their han gers-on—with their immense stock of patriot ism put up one round of stone of the materials collected by the former board and since, accord ing to their own admissions, have only attempt ed to preserve the monument from decay and destruction. Not a blow has been struck for eighteen months or longer, and what property aud materials they could lay their hands on have been sold; the proceeds of which, together with the contributions received by them, have been squandered—no work done—no state ment as provided by the constitution of the association has ever reached the public eye.— Everything connected with their actions is as a sealed book, aud in all the practical results they so boastinglv promised, they have failed, therefore, it is but just and right, that the pub lic verdict, they invited in the event of the non-performance of their promises should be ; rendered. The secretary elected by this Know Nothing boards seeing the error of his wav, and the ten j denev of this order against the public welfare, j a few mouths ago withdrew from it, aud there I upon was requested by a Know Nothing coun ! cil here, to resign his secretary-ship of the board. ! Upon his refusal to do so a meeting of the | board was called—the first that had convened for months—for the purpose of bringing the refractory official “ to taw,” and as it might ap peal too transparent for even that hoard to ex pel him, vengeance was partially recked on i iii 111 in abolishing the salary attached to the | office. i According to the constitution the Mayor of I ° ; i Washington is ex-officio a member of the hoard, j by which means our democratic mayor has been ! after the concern with a ‘‘sharp stick,” as will he seen by the report below of the proceedings of one of its late meetings: “ Notwithstanding the expulsion of the re porters, and the determination of the managers I of this association to keep from the public a i knowledge of their actions, we are enabled to dav to give a pretty full, aud at the same time ; accurate, report of their proceedings at the meeting held on Thursday night. A careful perusal of the facts we have obtained will not onl v carrv conviction to the minds ot ail candid and impartial men that the affairs ot this asso c atiou need investigation, but will satisfy them that now, it ever, is the time for all true triends of the monument to be erected in honor of tiie ‘ Father ol his Country’ to bestir themselves, and, in February next, wrest liom the hands of these inefficient and secret-plotting unu a gers the control of Ibis association. The first business lit fore the managers after they had decided not to admit tin* pub ic was a resolution offered by by Mr. M Calla, that, as the affairs ot the association were hi such a distressingly embarrassing cot id tinn, they were compelled to abolish tue salary oi their secre tary. In the course of the prolonged and highly exciting discussion which ensued, Mayor Ma gruder moved that the resolution tie referred to a committee, u hu h should be instructed to in pure into lb alia rs of the association gene rally—its management and its finances—and report at the next mecling of tiie board, wlncli should be hel I on Thursday next. The chair blandly int,mated that the motion ought I i be committed to write g. Mr. Bradley, w ith emphasis, slated that be ha t already reduced lo writing a similar reso lution, which be bail designed to offer; bearing iv hidi, Mayor Magruder remarked that he would withdraw me motion and let Mr. Bradley oiler his lesolnl on, as he did nut desire to be one of the committee. Tue above arrangement having been acqui esced in, M tyor Magi inter called to the read ing, by tiie secretary , of the last clause of tue report made by the committee on finance at the meeting held early in February last; which clause made it appear that the committee had examined the books and accounts ot tiie secre tary, and found them all correct, hut had been unable to obtain a statement from tue treasurer of the moneys received and disbursed by him; on the contrary, the 'committee hoped, to obtain such a statement by Lire time ot the annual no cling ol the society mi tiie 22d of February last.

As iu most other things, so in the opportuni ties afforded for a finished female education, Arkansas has been greatly in the rear of her sister Southern States. Hitherto those among us who have had the desire and the means to give their daughters a good education have been forced to send them abroad at the risk of their health, and at a great outlay of money, The dtsnjn ot Mrs. it.chard’s institute is to bring to our own doors the advantages for our children which we have had to seek for them in dist nt parts of the country—to afford every facility fur acpiiring knowledge, and every means of imparting those accomplish ments which are appropriate to toe Iciuale character. This institute aims at the standard of a female univer».ty -—-that is, it sets out w ith a determination to have every branch of edu cation taught within its walls which the de mands of a complete instruction for young ladies can reas noddy make upon it. lint w ile Knowledge is endeavored to be itii| urted a 1 tiie m.nd discij lined and trained t" habits of rellection and thought, it will be a principal elf Tt of this institute to regulate and guide the cm l.oiial nature oi the pupils, and their general moral character.
