the Hartford Ceurant publishes the fol
lowing interesting extract front Iht ad
vauce sheets ef an aceeunt of the life of
James Williams, the old negro janitor of
Triuity College:
"Professor Jim wax the slate of Colonel
Robert, a retired Revolutionary officer
living iu Yookers, N. Y. Aarou Burr was
a frequeut visitor at Colonol Rebart's
house, and a room was always ready for
him, ae he might slop at any lime on his
ny from, Albany to New York, and baok
again. , .The establishment of Burr seems
to have made a strong impressiou'on Pro
fessor Jiin's mind, and he describes with
admiring tones the enormous carriage
di awn by six horses, and tho retinue of
oiit-riden and - footmen which accom

end ouretd constantly, but who in ladies'
society was very polite andfexquisite.
At the time of the duel between Burr
and llamillon Jim was at work, in the
fields at mail time, and bis mother was
sent on horseback for the batch of papers
which was due. She gave the letters, on
her return, to her master, - and he had
soarcely read the first one he had opened
when, all hurry and exciloment, he shout
ed, '(ieta room ready quiok, for that little
devil is coming I' When afterwards he
learned that Hamilton had been killed' In
the duel, the excitement only increased, 'i
"A moment's digression here to the
statements of history will be serviceable
in ascertaining how far Prof. Jim remem
bers the circumstances of this occasion.
"On Wednesday morning, the 11th of
July, 1801, Burr and Hamilton met on the
heights of Weehawkert, and the dual was
fought; on Thursday, the I2tli, (Jen. Ham
illon died, and on Saturday, the 14th, he
was intered with military honors.
' "Burr writes to Joseph Alliston, Esq.,
from New York July 13: "den. llamillon
died yesterday. I proposo leaving town
for a few days, and meditate also a jour
ney for some weeks, but whither is not re
solved. Perhaps to Statesburgh. You
will hear from me in about eight days.'
The next letter with any date is Irom Phil
adelphia, July 29.
.M'urtqn, iu his life of Aaron Burr, says
that immediately after tho duel Burr went
to his homo in New York (Richmond Hill),
and for eleven days stayed at or near his
place, writing under cover of friends in
Philadelphia to his daughters and to bis
,ton.in-law. '
"Jim's statement, as will be seen, be
comes an important one in the hiBtory of
Burr's life, inasmuch as the missing link
in the broken chain of ciroumslances con
nected with the history from just before
i the duel till some months afler is here
supplied. The interest attached to the
events in the life of our aged janitor in
crease when e! find ourselves able to
verify his statements with the ocoepted
statements of historians.
"Now Jim says: 'Burr went first to his

Sam Krakcisco, April 12. A courier
has arrived here from the lava beds, and
reports that Maj. General Caaby and Dr.
Thomas were murdered by the Modocs
yesterday, while heldiag a peace confer
ence. '.,,!, ,
Lav A Beds, April 11, via Yreka, April
12. Yesterday afternoon five Indians
and four squaws come inlo camp, and
were mads presents of clothing anil pro
visions by (be pease commissioner, and a
message was sent by the commissioner
asking for talk this a. h., at a point about
one mile from our picket line.
Later in the evening, Bogus Charley
come in and told the pickets that ihey
could .take his gun, that he (Charley) did
not .intend to go back any more. The
picket brought him in and took him to
the tent of General Canby, where Charley
left his gun and lemained at the tent of
Frank Riddle during the night. This
morning Boston Charley cams in and told
the commissioner that Capt. Jack and five
other Indians would meet him (the com
missioner) outside of our lines. Boston
Charley and Bogus Charley then mounted
horsta and started for the Lava Beds.- ' '
About two hours after their departure,
don. Canby, Dr. Thomas, Mr. A; 15. Mea
chain and Mr. Dyer, with Frank Riddle
and the squaw for interpreters, slafled
for the place appointed. The body arrived
at the appointed place, and were closely
watched by the signal officer. Lieut. Ad
ams, from a signal station on the hill over
looking our camp. About half an hour
after the parly arrived, a ory from Ihe
signal station was heard saying that tho
Indians had altaoked the peace commis
sioner, and 'that an engagement had com-'
menoed between the Indians and Col. Ma
son. In a moment troops were underarms
and deployed as skirmishers under com
mand of Col, Qren, and orders were giv
en to forward double quiok. Very short
ly afler Mr. Dyer returned, he told us that
the Indians had attaoked them and that he
thought be was the enly one who had es
caped; but in afew moments alter Riddle,
and his squaw were seen within picket
line from the hill. '
We gather the following account of how
the massacre commenced: Mr. Meacham
made a short speech to the Indians fol
lowed by QenCanby and thin Dr. Thom
as. Then Capt. Jaok made a Speech asking
for Hot Creek and Cottonwood plaoes now
ooeuriedby Falrohild and Dorris for res
ervation. Mr. Mcaoham told Jack that it
was not possible to. give hint fchal he
asked. Schoonichln told Meacham to say
no mere, (hat he, Meacham, had said
snough upon - that subject, and while
Sohoonlchin was "speaking Capt. Jack got
up and walked behind the others,. when be
turned back and exolalmed, "all ready."
He then drew his pistol and snapped a
cop at Gen. Canby. He cooked his pistol
again and fired. Gen. .Canby fell dead,
Bitot under theoye. Schoonichln than Shot

Anti-Keirilutioii.
Whilst we do not impugn Ihe motives,
question Ihe fidelity to principle, or doubt
the sinoere desire to promote tbe interests
of the whole Slate, of any of Ihe Demo
cratic members of Ihe present Legislature,
we must express our great surprise, and
most heart-felt disappointment at the
course taken by some of the leading Dem
ocrats upon the most important questions
which come oeiore mat Honorable body.
In vain have we looked for a satisfactory
explanation of their conduot. Is it from
a lack ot sound statesmanship wiih legis
lative iuenpacity, or has an overanxiely
to free our Slate aud relieve our people
from the wrongs aud oppressions of Rad
ical rule, and a morbid desire for "re
trenchment and reform?'' over-leaped their
better judgements? Having heretofore
entertained so high an opinion of tbe
ability and wisdom, and having had the
fullest contiJence in the integrity and
sound Demoeralio principles of the gen
tlemen to whom we refer, we will, iu all
charily, attribute their action to the lat
ter, though most unfortunate, oause.
Whatever may have been tho motives
which have actuated, or ihe oauses whioh
have induced their oourse of couduct, we
are constrained, as out-spoken journalists,
to sy, uiougn witn regret and humilia
tion, that they have shown themselves un
equal to the labors they have assumed,
and unfit to be the representatives or
slaudnrd bearers of the Democratic party,
wuose nign nopes in them they have
blasted.
While wo have deoried against, in the
most bitter terms, Ihe extravaganoe, cor
ruption, bad legislation and ruinous ad
ministration of the Radical party, and
have labored with our utmost teal to rem
edy the evils they inflicted upon us, we
nave never advocated, advised, sought or
oxpeoied the repudiation of a single legal
obligation which the Radical Legislature,
as the represenatives of the State, have
imposed upon us.
It is true, Democrats very generally
throughout the Stale, have been, and still
are, opposed to the polioy of granting
moneyed subsidies tu railroads ; yel, where
the grant has bten made, as in Ihe oase of
the International, if sustained by the
courts of the country, the honest, tried
and true Democracy or Texas are the last
to delay or evade by the ingenuity or
trickery of counsel, by open repudiation
or legislative ebicanery, their binding ob
ligation and faithful payment.
No suoh issue was mads in ths election:
and we cannot believe our people are so
oeoignieu, or can oe so Dlinileil by Ignor
anoe or prejudice, or so deluded by the
criss of "bribery and corruption," wheth
er made by delirious, though honost men.
or demagogues, that they will so far for
get their self-respect and individual hon
or, and become so reokless of, and so in
sensible to, the incalculable value of the
unblemished credit and fair name of Tex-
13, 1873. ' ,
as, as ever to permit suoh an issue to be
made. , ,
And (hose Democrats occupying teats
In the present Legislature, . who believe
they were sent there for the purpose of
open or ttratrgical rtjmdiation, and have
attempted to accomplish that purpose,
grossly, through it may be innocently,
misrepresent and defame the constitution-al-obeylnjt,
the law-abiding, Iht manly,
dealing, the Iruth-Jcving, . Ihe plighted
faiih-keeping, the dxut miNd, the soul
Or HONOR, OOOI) OLD .DEMOCRATIC ParTT I
Whatl Texas repudiate under Dene
oratie rule I Let the head that would con
oeive the thought hang in sheepish igno
miny I Let Ihe cheek that would bear Iht
charge uncrlmsoned, be blaokened by the
deep, dark blush of guilty shame I Let
tbe voles' trial would dare sound (be damn
ing ory of repudiation, be silenced by the
outbiirsting thunder tone of public scorn
and indignation.
Tbe credit of the State has been greatly
impaired, if aot already blasted, by tbe
action and non-aclion of Ihe present Leg
islature. And if the policy, if policy it
may be called, of some nf the prominent
Democretle members, whose names and
records are too wall known to require
menuoo, ana trin remembered, iexes
will be "marked and branded" as a Rspu
diatorl She will tland before the world
as unworthy of trust or confidence as
false to her obligations poverty -slric ken
without honor or boaesty defiantly flaunt
ing repudiation in the faoet of her credi
tors. It has besn with unfeigned disappoint
ment that we have watohed the action uf
the Democratic members to whom we re
fer, and it Is in a spirit of Sorrow and re
gret that we have felt, doty bound, thus
to review them.
We turn from the sad and unfortunate
predicament in whioh our Slate bas been
placed, and anxiously look for the remedy,
and Ihs man of Texas who shall be tbe
worthy standard-bearer of Anti-repudiation,
inlernal Improvements, progression
and Reform I .
Instantly the answor comes: with the
People is ths remedy I For the standard
bearer we need look not in vain. -
Among the many whom we might name
we will speeify those ef a few gentlemen,
upon Whom every reliance can be placed :
Such as Thomas T. Devine, of the West;
B. II. Epperson, of Iht East ; Richard Coke
in tht North ; and last, but very far from
the least. James W.Throckmorton, that
noble and true-hearted Texan, who has
been singled out as Ihe viotim upon whose
bead is to be poured all tht vials of wrath.
A man who is entitled lo the confidence
and admiration of every Texan whether
of the West, Centre or East, because of his
progreasivs spirit, clear head, sound
statesmanship and big heart. Wt re
peat, we point- lo Ex-Governor Throck
