MONDAY, APRIL 7, 1851.
We are happy to learn that the difficulty
between Mr. Daniei., of th^ Richmond
Examiner, and Mr. Scott, late a representative
of Powhatan, in the legislature of Virginia, has
been amicably and honorably settled.
dTThe Socorro tragedies?a graphic account
of which we extract from the correspon lence of
the Picayune, must be read with puinful interest.
The narrative presents a dark picture of
the state of society on our'southwestern frontier.
The retribution, however, in these coses
a was as prompt and bloody as the crime?yet
/ many such offences and oifenders must go " uuwhipt
of justice."
f , &5?r . is tated in the papers thut a gentleman
in Georgia has sent three hundred dollars
to pay for printing, in pamphlet, and circulating
t the attacks of the National Intelligencer on the
State of South Carolina.
He had better include, also, General Houston's
commentaries on the constitution of South
i Carolina.
It m t ho editor ot the Union trnnkiy cony
fesaes that, he lias rend but few of our papers.
This accounts for his errors and his impenitence.

fl^yWe regret that Congress failed to make
an appropriation for printing the returns of the
now census. But as they will soon be complete
and the classification will proceed, we intend to
preeent from time to time, an analysis of-tho results.
Many of the "most important questions that
* concern man individually and collectively, will
receive from the minute, various, and elaborate
returns of this census, an q^cidation beyond all
previous works of the kind.
Froih some glimpses we have taken of it,
many of the modern theories of liberty and progress,
will experience utter demolition. The institutions
of the South will obtain a body of
b*. evidence so comprehensive, various, and conclusive
as to be overwhelming. The mass of
facts is immense, nnd the labor required toclas'
sify them and to determine their effect on the
great questions of the day, will also bq very
g:eat, but it will richly repay.
isrwe obscrvo that a convention of the opponents
of the Fugitive slave law in Massachur
setts, has been called at Boston on to-morrow.
As this was done before the last arrest of a fugitive,
it may render the proceedings in that caise
more critical.
Notice.?All citizens of Massachusetts, without
distinction of party, opposed to the Fugitive
slave law, and in favor of adopting such woosL
ures, within the limits prescribed by the Consti|
tution, as may procure its essential modification
or final repeal, are invited to assemble at BcsI
ton, on Tuesday, April 8th, at 10 o'cloek, a. ra.,
I at the Tremont Temple,'for'tho purpose of eonf
suiting together, and devising the' best means ot
advancing that object.

I Foreign Sympathisers.
The common cunt of the compromisers, whose
great triumph was the surrender of all the new
territory to the Free-soilcrs?is to twit the advocates
of the South with British affinities.
The London Times thus rejoices over the
great end achieved by the compromise : and
shows who are entitled to foreign sympathy.
" The point of the greatest interest is, of
course, the struggle between slaveholders and
Abolitionists, nnd here the balance shows a total
loss to the former of six members, who are, of
course, transferred to the ranks of their opponents.
It is not to be presumed, however, that
these Southern States have remained stationary,
or that they are lacking in the general enterprise
of their countrymen. The activity of
Georgia has been prodigious, and it has succeeded
in maintaining itself in its former position.
Arkansas, too, has increased its population
at a rate exceeding that of any State in the
Union, and it even gains a member; but, its
numbers are too small at present to tell with
any weight upon the gcnenupoll. The decline
of the slave States arises from the greater popularity
of the free States in the eyes of foreign
emigrants, the fluctuations in their own populations
being dependent chiefly on themselves.?

Sentiments In Michigan.
The Ottawa county Hollander published in
Gen. Cass's bailiwick, gives the following exemplification
of public sentiment in its vicinage :
A in in was tarred and feathered at the Bust,
and laid his damages nt $3,000.
A man was served the. same way in this
county (Grand Haven) so tie time since, and
the fellow only charged $40, and was n government
officer nt that! The people could
afford to tar and feather the whole pack at that
rate. Slave-cntcthers might ns well keep away
from a place where a coat of tar and feathers
only costs $40.
The American Association for the advancement
of science will hold their next annual
meeting nt Cincinnati in May next. Members
are to be carried over Lake Brie and the Ohio
railroads nt half the usual rates, nnd the local
committee are to provide gratuitous entertainment
during their sojourn.
A writer in Frazer,s Magazine, suggests that
to accommodate tfie immense crowd at the London
Fair with " lodgings," who are bnrred out
from feather beds in snug inns, that the river
Thames shall be covered with rafts, on which
lodging-rooms or stalls shall be constructed and
Jet out at a cheap rate.
The Institutions or the 800 ??i must depend
for support on the Democracy or the
North.? Washington Uniqri,
Mr. Rantoud, the late United States Democratic
senator from Massachusetts, is one of the
ublest men of his party in that State; and such
was the opinion ot his orthodoxy, that tho editor
of the Union could not believe he would
tuke his seat in the Senate, when recently elected
to that body by the same coahtion which has
since been trying to elect Sumneu. Mr. Rantoul,
however, did take his seut, although but
ten days remained of the term for which he was
elected. He did not, we believe, detine his position
whilst in the Senate, but has done so very
cleurly since his return home, as we find by the
following in tho Boston I'ost, the organ of Democracy
in Massachusetts?the opponent of
Sunnek, indeed?but silent now as to Mr. Rantoul
Mr. Rantoul's Position Defined.?The
meeting held in Lyceum Hall, Lynn, yesterday
afternoon, called for the ostensible purpose of
affording Mr. ltantoul an onnortunitv to address
un assembly of the voters of tho second congressional
district, proved to be an out-and out
Free-soil and anti-fugitive slave law affair. Mr.
Robinson, of Marblehend, presided, and made
a Sumner coalition address upon taking tho
chair, and was followed by Mr. Rantoul, who
commenced his remarks by stating that the
meeting was called at his suggestion. Having
said that he wished no man, who had heretofore
voted fpr him, to vote so again, .under any misimpression
of his views upon the most exciting
question of the day, he read the following resolutions
against the Fugitive slave law, and supported
tjjom in a speech of nearly two hour's
" Resolved, That the Constitution of tho U.
States has not conferred upon Congress the
power to enact any law authorizing officers of
the United States to determine the slavery or
freedom of persons found within the territory of
any State, and to convey them out of the State
wherein they are found to be held as slaves in
another State.
Resolved, That no person in any State of this
Union can be lawfully deprived of his liberty
without due process of law, which process, in
tho case of an alleged fugitive from service, in
a suit at common law, wherein the fact, whether
said fugitive was lawfully held to service in the
State from which he is alleged to have escaped,
shall be determined by a trial by jury.
Resolved, That such trial by jury should precede
the delivery into the hands of the party
claiming him, of such alleged fugitive, and
should be had in the vicinity where the said
alleged fugitive is found.
Resolved, That in the determination of the
question of liberty, all presumptions of law and
fact are and ought to be in favor of liberty.
Resolved, That the Fugitive slave law enacted
by the Congress lately expired, contravening
these-principles, is unjust, unconstitutional, in
derogation of the fundamental maxjms of free
government, and ought to be speedily and for
ever repealed."
At the close of his remarks, Mr. Rantoul read
the resolutions again, and re-allirmed, with great
emphasis, his entire and unqualified concurrence
in theni. The resolutions were then adopted
by nearly a unanimous vote; and in like manner
it was voted to support Mr."Rantoul at the
election to be hold on Monday next.
Thus it seems that the Southern right of reclaiming
fugitives from labor, is to be defeated,
on the pretence of a State right to defend the
liberty of its inhabitants by jury trial.
There never is any lack of pretences fatal to
Southern rights. The share of the South in
California was taken away on the two-fold pretence
of a right of the people of a territory to
form their own institutions, (which was construed
inton right to define their own territorial
limits)?and the power of Congress to admit a
State. *
A large territory was taken from Texa9, on
the pretence of a treaty with Mexico, and the
right of the South to colonize that territory,
was extinguished on pretence of the right of
Texas to relinquish it to the North for money.
The right of the South to emigrate to Now
Mexico and Utah, is continually denied on pretence
of Mexican law.
Pennsylvania Politics.
Mr. Webster's mission to Pennsylvania was
heralded by some growls at the Whigs of the
legislature, ior meir presentation 01 iiie name 01
Gen. Scott for the Presidency.
TIiq Stale Journal, Harrisburg, fciys:
44 These dictatorial and ill-timed movements
are not only injurious to Gen. Scott, but evince
a great want of courtesy towards the present
Whig National Administration, and should be
indignantly frowned down, &e." 4
The York Adcocate condemns the movement,
and adds by way of advice, that?
44 The members had better attend to their own
The Chambcrsburgh Whig intimates in very
plain terms?
44 That this is not the business for which the
members of the legislature were sent to Harrisburg,
and that they have transcended the powers
delegated to them as representatives of the jmrty,
and thus established a most dangerous* precedent."
A Choice of Evils.
The Boston Atlas is informed tlint fifteen
Democrats who have refured to vote for Sumner
have signed a pledge to vote for Charles Allen,
Representative from the Woostcr district,
if Sumner is dropped.
Mr. Allen's claims "arc doubless based on
his rnntpant Frce-soiliain, and his late assault pn
the Boston merchants and Mr. Webster.
England and France.?A writer in Blackwood's
Magazine for February states, as a fact,
that a war between England and France was
barely averted durhg the contentions between
the cabinets of the two nations, growing out of
the recent quarrel about (Itnheite. il? says that
for several nights 6,000 troops slept lirmed and
accoutred, on board of French ships of War at
Cherbourg, ready to move, at n moment's notice
for some of the exposed ports on the English
The Montreal Courier states that three Roman
Catholic institutions in Lower Canada
have an aggregate income greater than the
whole provincial revenue.
U. S. Light Artillery Disbanded.?We
regret to learn that the Secretary of War, under
direction of the President, has sent on orders to
Fort Mclienry tor the disbanding ot uompany
A, of the Second Artillery, now at that post,
commanded by the gallant .Major Sedgewiek,
Major Ripley and Lieut. I'nrry. This company
was known as " Duncan's battery" during the
Mexican war, where it immortalized itself, and
wc deem it a most unpopular measure to disband
it under present circumstances. Congress
appropriated money sufficient for the maintenance
of nil the Ljght Artillery flatteries in the
Army, but there being n demand for money to
support other nrms of the service, it has been
decided to sell the horses attached to tbis#
splendid corps, house the batteries, and place
muskets in the hands of the men as infantry.
It requires time and labor to drill the men, n<
well as the horses, attached to the Light Artillery,
nnd consequently their place ennnot be supplied
very readily in case of need.?Baltimore
t^gTThe reception of the Virginia resolutions
in South Carolina, is not such as to gratify,
the "sympathetic" souls of the acquiescents 11
of her legislature. . w
The Cuindcu Journal quotes the resolutions 1
first proposed, and adds the following signifi- jr
cant remarks: "
"This, we suppose, is the first step toward the n
Virgiuia mediation, that has been talked of, rod
we do sincerely hope, it will be the last. On t
what ground can Virginia otter her mediation s
between South Carolina, and the North? as a B
friend? This we deny. Would you consider j.(
him your friend, who would counsel you to disgrace?
Would you consider liiin your friend,
who would advise you, or offer his mediation,
to cause you to become tire truckling, succumb y
ing slave of a vile and oppressive master ? how w
then can we consider Virginia as a friend, if she a
advise us to a course, so' low and degraded ^
We dilfer with the Carolinian, in hoping that -j
Virginia will send any delegates to our eonven- ^
tion. Wo want no advisors who give us the w
farewell address of Washington, as a passport |(
into the land of submissiouism. What have
t*. I.,.. ul.u O....U . nfV.li.1 ?
to commit herself so far as a Southern congress.
Alas! for Virginia, "the Hays of tier glory are ^
as if they had never been"?entombed with the j,
"illustrious Southerner" seems to bo all her j(
high and holy patriotism. The voice of a Pat- ^
rick Henry, is sdent, and with it the high strung
chords of her State pride seems to be untuned. e
Mason, llunter Meude, and Seddon, Tucker and |,
a few more of thore who keep alive the past, ?
are scattered here and there as llowcrs over .,
some deserted garden, in which the rank weeds j.
and thorns had choked, all that once won the
admiration of the beholder. If Virginia will p
submit?let her submit. But who would have t
thought, that land of Lee, of Henry, of Wirt,
and of Washington, could thus have fallen."
A Central Shot. v
The Pennsylvanian is perplexed about the ^
Central American business, which is as mud, a
and murmut at "the Godlike," thus, unmindful ^
of his praise of Pennsylvania:
" Since the Whig National Administration 1
came into power, one of its achievements has s
been to produce as profound a riddle to solve as
that of the natural history of the Sphinx. We v
allude-to the business concerning Nicaragua, the ?
Musquito King and Great Britain, so important ^
in reference to the question as to a ship canal 8
to connect the waters of the Atlantic and the vj
Pacific. Can any one tell precisely how the a
matter stands?whoro was the beginning and 0
what is to be the end?and how, " the inns
which has been made of it," is to be cleared |
away ? We suspect that the Whig employers
who have been in the State Department,are often i;
tempted, like the Irish ambassador, to enquire
what they have been doing and what it is all l
about, for the purpose of finding some difficulty
in understanding the mattar ? n

Central Southern Rights Association of 0
Mississippi.?At a culled meeting of the asso-, "
ciations, held Saturday evening, March 8, 1851, l(
the following preamble and resolutions were un- e
anhnously adopted: y
Whereas, It has been represented to tinCentral
State Rights Association, that his Ex- a
celleney, John Anthony Qaiituian, late Governor c
of the State of .Mississippi, has been discharged 'l
from custody?that the government of the j(
United States having failed to introduce any tl
proof whatever in support of the unfounded and i ^
malicious charge made against him (originated f,
by the enemies of the South in ord;-r to degrade p
the sovereign State of Mississippi that had a
through her convention and legislature fearless- 'I
ly asserted her rights under the Constitution ; ''
and to humiliate her Chief Executive ollicer who ?
had taken a bold and prominent stand in behalf j.
of Southern Rights, either by foreing him to re- u
sign his station, or to be led into captivity as c
Governor of the State to be tried by an oat of ti
the State tribunal) and having accomplished all
that was intended in the commencement of tin- P
prosecution, has ordered the same to be dis '
'nissed; and, whereas, we.have an abiding con- n
fldenc in the talents, patriotism and uu vavcr- ^
ing in egrity of our late Governor whom we j
hail as the great champion of Southern Rights, n
the bold unflinching advocate of the Constitu- i|
tion us formed by our fathers, and the first o
martyr to the principle that we hold dear as our ti
lives: therefore. 8
Resolved, That this association, in conjunction n
with the personal and political friends of Gov. '
Quitman, in Mississippi, will give to him, upon "
his return to the seat of government, such a wel- a
coine as will he suitable to the occasion.
Resolved, That the chairman appoint a com- ti
mi I tee of twenty six gentlemen, to act as a com- u
mittee of arrangements, in order to make the
necessary pre pa rat onw for giving to Governor c
Quitman a magnificent barb cue at Jackson, in ''
honor of his services as a politician and his mer- r
its as n citizen.
Reunited, That a committee of invitation, consisting

Gov. Quitman to be present, at such a time as u
will suit his convenience,and also to invite such I
other distinguished gentlemen as they may con
sider proper, to be present, and to participate in Jj

Result of Fashionable Dissipation.?The
New Yorker mentions the lamentable denou-. 11
pient of a young lady in high life, daughter of a
clergyman, who was recently married to a gent- f>
leman of fortune, and went to Paris with her
husband, where she plunged into giycties of s
that splendid city, till lu-r hu*b..nd became o
alarmed, and 9"nt for Iter fath??r, but it was too n
late. The father and the husb ind returned to f'
New York sadder and Wi.?er men: the former to h
ponder over the truth that virtue is more to be
prized than Wealth or fashion, and the latter con |(
vinced that a beautiful woman is not nlwnys a
beautiful wife, and that gayity -nnd jewels go ^
but a little way to make a home happy, Thi; s
husband has taken counsel, and the courts wfll ^
do justice. In the mean time the fallen beauty
remains in Paris, protected by her charms, and |,
apparently elated by the sensation site haa made tt
in that gny and voluptuous city.

left without giving notice, which caused console- j
rable commotion, and brought out an address from ,
M. Cabet, the chief of the establishment. The 11
whole trouble is charged by Cahet upon the influ- r
ence exerted by the Catholics. There is every
probability that the trouble will spread until the

From the Boston Commonwealth, .Ipril 4.
Our city was disturbed and disgraced
iglit by kidnappers and bacchanalians.
First a colored person, named Thoa. Sym
'as arrested us u fugitive slave, in Cooper si
le mode a stout resistance, and somewha
rred police officer Butman, who was forwa

irge posse of watchmen who wero in read

jrined him that ho was counsel for the pris

initiation was to take place. He did no

eheujence, when Riley called to a poss

In the legislature to-day, the following pe

! On the night of the '29th, preceding the mo

> ' dancing party was given in the place, such be
i | the only amuseuwnt which could be afforded
> those who wore desirous of enjoying pleusan
c the little society present. The testimony
i those present during the night in question, n*
' has been elicited in an examination and trial sii
held, and from other information not furnisher
I that time, all goes to prove that certain indiv
5 uals, known as Alexander Young, John Wa
s Marcus BuMer, William Craig. Stephen Stanl
s Chas. Hughes, Clias. Ripley, Thomas McCus
? Alex'r McNiven and others, went to the hoi
i j where the dancing was going on,and with the p
* ! meditated design of" breaking it up and havi
II a fuss with a Mr. Clarke, and any one else w
* | might aid him." Young commenced by maki
' a considerable noise, und, us it grew later, fn
? his pistol off at a candle ; the frigthened feiua
r were not permitted to retire, and any one w
I might attempt to take them away was thruatei
- with death. Meanwhile, two rultians stood
, the outside as sentinels, one ut each side of
I entrance. Craig discharged his pistol at
i, clock, destroying the same, while Young, w
- a kiv'.fe in_ -one hand nnd a p<?tnl In the otl
> moved up and dpwn the room, threatening
i shoot the first person who moved. At one t
a he makes the direct question, whether he si
shoot Clarke or not, ut the same moment t
I, his pistol is within a few inches of Clarl
f head, who is sitting in a chair. At length
- final bloody act was committed by an attack
- on Clnrke,commenced by Young,and follow
i, in a direct manner, by Wade, Butler, and Cr
f and in a manner less direct by others of
a party who were standing round. The roi
f was that Clarke was earried'away to a surge
- mortally wounded in nine or ten places,
, Chas. Gates was taken away with a severe s
t wound in the leg.
a The- morning following, horror and disr
t were depicted in the faces of all. What wu
1 be done ? The military had refused to aid
- and wo felt that whatever might have been tl
- excuses, their nori-complianco with our reqii
i had permitted the perpetration of another f
t murder; for had but a reasonable number
i their body presented itself at Socorro iuinn
r ately, the murderers would have been frightei
f or driven from the place. The alcalde of
i village, a weak and sickly imbecile, had tra
. ftrred his authority ton person even more til

was invested with *the powers of a justice

i promptly responded to, and in about three ho
i a party of Mexicans and Americans, which
had hastily armed, were joined by the ot
I members of the commission, and likewise mi
? of the Villagers from below.
i The force was divided, and every suspec
, house searched, by which they su-ceeded
arresting eight or nino of the party; I
I Young, the leader, had made his escape eurlj
the morning. The prisoners were gjiinediut
carried to the house of Judge nerthold, whci
' court was instituted to suit the emergencies of

I of the body pf Clarke was waiting its final removal
ind to the place selected for its sepulture. An or- * |
the derly nnd regular procession was formed, and
wr., preceded by the priest, with all the insignia of I
my the holy Catholic church, the body was carried | ,
his to the grave in the cemetery, in front of the frj
church, where, at the conclusion of the Catholic .H
avc service, that of the Episcopal was read, and the
i of remains of the murdered man were left in their
the last resting place. After these mournful cere- K
monies were-concluded, it became necessary to &
eat meet and consider the ease of Alexander Me- ?
Nivcn. The scenes of the day previous, and f
rn- the reflections of the past night, had caused a f
, a great change in this bold desperado; and, with fi '
ing a solemn promise that he would abstain from
I to liquor from that date, (as it was to liquor alone )
tly lie charged his improper conduct,) he was dis- $
of charged, rendering himself liable to certain pun- I
lit ishment should he fail to respect his solemn obice
ligation made in open court. At su. 'own'Mcl
ut Niven was far upon the road, *uh his mouth
id- full of promises to do better in t>- fi ure.

ey, pleasant place to dwell in.buttm- e w: jne
by, other, and ho the principal actor in .these
ise seines, who was yet to be apprehended and pay
re- the penalty of all his great crimes, before this Being
vere leqson for all evil-doers would be complete.
'ho Four hundred dollars were subscribed and ofing
fered as a reward for the arrest of Alexander
red Young, and his delivery nt Socorro. Volunteer
Ics parties were out in oil directions; and others
'ho were looking for him, tempted by the prospect
icd of gaining the large reward. At length, On the
on morning of the 11th, news reached us of his art-he
ri.9t, and that in the evening he would be del-be
livered at Socorro. Another unpleasant, but
'ith necessary duty presented itself, but it was iu.hcr,
possible to avoid it. .

.hat During the night he was visited in jail, the careke's
]es8> dogged look had left his eye, and the supthe
plicating, inquiring glance told plainly of a change
"P- within the inner man. He was anxious to know
'cd, jf fither of the three previously hung had made
a'o'i a confession or not, and said he had given up all
the hopes of escaping. Being asked if he wished
suit t0 writo to any one, he answered that he would
oni like to have a letter written to his mother, who
and had not heard from hiin for six years past. The S
hot letter was written, and the prisoner appeared
much affected. He confessed the truthfulness
nay of the charges against him, criminating clearly,
8and in a still worse light, the three who were
U8> hung first, besides many others. He did not
lelr think there was any hope for him after'death,
[e8t but would try and turn his thoughts heavenoul
wyr(j. Ho then knelt down and prayed, after
o' which he was left alone.
?d'- At 10 o'clock, a. m., February 12th, the court
ned a jury impanneled, &.c.j notwithstanding the
^le inclemency of the weather and the heavy falling
[ns- snow, which rendered the duties of the morning S
ll'd doubly unpleasant. At the opening of the court,
son, a letter of the prisoner, containing his confes'
sion, was read publicly, then signed by himself,
om and witnessed by certain members of the court
ted und other individuals there present.
ew With the testimony already before the court,
:n*' the jury could have brought in an immedif"'*
ate verdict of guilty ; but it was deemed advvs- J
in(* able to present other evidences to shtyv still fur,m
ther the unmistakable guilt of every one who had- - j
er8 been punished, especially as it was to the interest
,118' of one or two persons, who were passing for hon1011
est and honorable men, to uphold the characters
vaa of their associates. The prisoner was found
,,rs guilty and sentenced to be hung. At 4 p. m., he
we was taken to the church, where, wjth penitent
er lips and on penitent knees, he made his final
iny confession, received the blessings of the priest,
and from th nee was taken to the spot wher?he
tf;d was to be hanged. His last request for himself
111 was that ho might be buried as well and as re.
spectable as the circumstances of his case would
' 1" admit. While standing under the tree, with
_ y the rope around his neck, he requested to be al- _ ,
a lowed to say a few words to those standing
the around.
I Ie beggWl o(those who were younger than ho
"<:e to take warningfrom his example, that even older
.ri" jrersons might profit by the warning presented
inkr in his case. They could see what gambling,
on. $wearjngf drinking and an ungovernable temper,
k with the worst of ev'rl associations, had brought
him to. He had run away from home at the age
of fourteen years, nnd would never see that
im" home again. With other remarks of like char1)08
acter he concluded, begging them to beware of
*r8 liquor, the pruning table and an ungovernable
1* temper. At half-past 4, p. m. the law was car'
ried into effect, using the aame tree and upon
^er the same spot where the first murderers were
or" hanged.
