FURTHER PARTICULARS
FROM PHILADELPHIA.
IMPORTANT INTELLIGENCE.
WHAT WILL BE DONE.
We have received Borne important information
from Philadelphia relative to the recent riots. Ii
appears by private letters thut Governor Porter in
tends to keep what military force he has already
concentrated in Philadelphia, and order several
more country corps into the city. When this lorce
is sufliciently large, he then contemplates taking
possession of the whole of Soutliwark, seize every
cannon in the hands of the mob, and to arrest the
ring leaders. Us is now determined to strike a
decisive blow and put a stop to all luture rioting.
This information is not only mentioned in private
letters, but is foreshadowed in the Philadelphia
newspapers of yesterday, extracts from which we i
annex. We may, therefore, expect warm work
before peace is fully restored to the city of brother
ly love.
[From Philadelphia Inquirer, July lt.1
We learn that an important demonstration is about
(?be made by ourci izeus, without regard to part}
feelings or distinctions, and in support ot die law
and the authorities. An able declaration lias been
drawn up by one of our purest and most distinguish
ed citizens, in which are embodied views, feelings
and pnnciplessuited to the cisis This has already
been signed by a large number of our citizens, and
it is probable that in the course of the day thou
' ' L added
sands of additional signatures will be added A
demonstration of this kind cannot but be produc
tive of the bent results. Itis the duty of every good
citizen to rally to the support of tne laws, and to |
the maintenance of public order. Let the morai
feeling?the manly patriotism of the communit)
be manifested in the most unequivocal manner in
aid ot the authorities, and ull will soon be well
The eagerntss with which this movement has al
ready been responded to speaks well for the correct
leelings of the citizens. The supremacy ot the
j laws must be maintained?the constituted authori
ties must be supported.
In case of riot, ought not some course to be adopt
ed by which the military shall be protected Irom
an Indian warfare1! Why station naked soldier)
in the streets to be fired at, by the hour, from wiu
; dows and alleys! Could not possession be taken at
once ol all the houses in the riotous vicinity! We
pit these questions without professing military
knowledge. But we are confident in saying thut it
is too much to ask ot our brave military men thai
they shall stand unprotected, and receive skulking
shots which they cannot return.
[From Philadelphia Chronicle, July 11 1
We understand, upon what we know to be com
petent anthority, thut the military force now in the
city is amply adequate to any emergency that can,
under any possible state ot circumstances, arise
The country troops are among the finest specimens
of citizen soldiery that have ever been witnessed in
this city, or perhaps in the country, it is a striking
tact, that almost every company muBtrrs a large,
number than at its most successful parade lor drill,
and all are full of ardor. We have reason to know
that the present large force will be increased, and
that ihey will remain under arms so long as the
slightest necessity continues. It is understood that
the Governor intends, before leaving the city, tt
ascertain, viet arrn.it, whether or not the Native*
have cannon secreted in the lower sections ol
Southwark, and to arrest all and carry oil' such
arms, should any be found.
HEAD QcJARTF.RI, Firit DlVlllOW, P. M. |
Philadelphia, 10th Julv, 1344.
Order No. 38.?The troops stationed at Fifth and Green
| streets, under Gen. Roumfort; at the Arsenal, under Maj
Krim ; the Cavalry, at their Quarters, and the troops at
He-id Quarters, will be put upon drill at least four Ume*
each day.
Hereafter morning reports of tho strength end condi
tion of each corps will be made at or before nine o'clock,
A. M.
The Major General returns his cordial thanks to the
| Volun sers of Montgomery and Berks counties, and to
Capt. Archambault's troops irom Bucks county, lsrthe
generous and soldier like spirit which induced them to
resfiond so promptly to bis call for aid.
The otticer* and men are earnestly desired to avoid all
| discussion of political, religious or other subjects calcu
luted to produce irritation. There must be no discussion
between the troops and tho citizens. The soldier knows
I no sect or party, it being his duty simply to assist in main
| taining the laws and supporting the Government.
By command of Major General Patterson.
J. MILES, A. I). C.
This order alone indicates the dotermination.of
the authorities in the matter.
[From the Philadelphia Papers, July 11 ]
The Rioters are boasting, it seems, of their force
and immense preparations to destroy the Military.
[ should they dare to venture into the District of
Southwark. It is said that they have '22 field pie
1 oea buried, ready to be taken up and used, tmd
Have sloop loads of ammunition in the Delaware
waiting their call. It is also said that, havinir tri
umphed so far, over the laws and the civil govern
ment, they are anxious for another opportunity to
exhibit their prowess, and contemplate some act of
violence shortly, in order to draw ilie troops with
in the line of their field of preparations. This it
really too daring, and our citizens are ashamed ol
ihia bullying ot the authorities. The wish is uni
versally expressed that Gov. Porter will send tin
whole military force into the distracted district, ar
rest every person found in arms against the author
ities, seize ull the ammunition and cannonore
| pared by the rioters, and put in this way an effect
ual end to the rebellion. Until this be done no
man will feel secuie in his life or property.
The Mayor, the Select and Common Councils,
and other city officers, yesterday, waited upon Go
vernor Porter in a buoy, and Ilia Honor the Mayor
niude a very handsome speech, highly complimen
tary to the Governor?thanking htin in the nam.
ol the city, for his promptness and energy in re
pairing to Philadelphia to aid in putting down the
ruthless insurgents who have broken down all law*
and forfeited all claim to respect and confidence
The Governor replied, briefly thanking the Mayot
I lor the compliment paid, and assured them no act
of hissbouldbe wanting, at any time, to preserve the
lawBunbrokcn;theConstitutioiiinviolate. The May
or and Councils did but express the feeling of every
good c tizen in the community. We know that Phil
adelphians will ever stand up for the laws, and that
they will preserve them if it costs streams of blood
to accomplish it. We know that there are bad men
in all communities, and that we have them here.?
We know, too, that many of the principal actor.
tn the bloody scenes of Sou'hwark are not citizens.
properly, of either Philadelphia, or any; other place ;
rn who h
men who have nothing at stake, and who would
plunder a bunk or a dwelling as soon as burn u
church. The wicked spirit? who stimulate these
men to riot and bloo shed, are more censurable, il
thut can be, than the lawless perpetrators of the
acts themselves.
What tuky cam. tobm.?As a matter of simple
justice and imparti ility we hive called the persons
who were engaged in the rebellious war on the ci
vil authorities in Southwark, the Rioters. The
" Sun" (Native) calls ikrm the People ! The "Na
tive American calls liem the Citizens! The
Chronicle (Native) calls them the Natives! The
Ledger (Native) calls theni " persons opposed to
the Native Americans," in order to deceive distant
readers into the belief that they were Catholics.
We make no comment.
The Southwark riot differed from that of Ken
sington in a most important feature. For the for
mer there was?not exactly an excuse, for no ex
cuse can justify a party or a faction in taking the
law in its own hands, and executing suiiimury ven
geance upon supposed offenders, their friends or
relatives?but there was a tangible pretext for vio
lent offence. In the latter there was nothing but
the base spirit of sell-willed, unreasonable religion*
proscription. There was nothing but a fell deter
mination to exhibit the authority of the mob.wheu
sustained by misguided public opinion, in tramp
ling upon every right of those who from their weak
ness have been selected for persecution.
In Kensington, it was charged that certain men
fired upon a meeting of peaceable citizens. Tins
wns infamous, of course; and it was held by aonte
presses as a very proper spectesol justice, and emi
nently American, not only to shoot instead of ar
resting the culprits, but also to shoot all in the neigh
borhood who happened to worship in the sam-e
faith: while the conflagration of a church or two
in addition was nut into the simple category of re
taliation." In southwark, it was only charged
that State muskets had been placed, by permission
ol the civil authorities, in a church lor its defence,
and that a sight of those muskets were offensive to
certain individuals because they indicated a will
to preserve at least one Christian Sanctuary from
the fate of those of St. Michael and St. Augustine
The difference is obvious We said before, that
anning the church at such a time, however legal?
for its legality cannot be questioned?however
i right?and its righteousness is beyond all reasonable
Clivil?was imprudent, impolitic, indiscreet, ?-ttll,
this indisctetion gave uo authority to the dissatis
fied to coerce in a lawless manner their removal.
They could have been removed by due process ol
law, and it the neighbors indulged in apprehensions
at their presence, the nearest magistrate 99ul(i
readily have put them in the way ol getting rid ot
the evil. They had no right to arrogate to them
selves the prerogatives of the law, and assume the
power to violate the law, to mollity their tears or
gratify their sectarian inclinations.
The military in our city at present arc very nu
merous indeed, and increasing con-tantly by rein
forceinents. They nre sufficiently strong, we think,
for almost any emergency, and are determined, we
are assured, to remain oa ihe ground until tranquil
lity is perfectly restored. We are pleased to see
that the public feeling, loo has, within the past
twenty-lour hours, completely changed in tone to
wards our brave defenders. But lew voice? are
now heard declaiming against them (out of South
ward, and even the press, with two incendiary
exceptions, speak loud-mouthed in their tavor.
The mob immediately afier ihe first nre of the
military in Southward on Sunday evening, broke
into the basement of the Commissioners Hall, and
succeeded in getting possession of a portioni of the
arms that were taken out ot St. 1 tulips Church
The Junior Artillerists, under the. command ol
Captain Drayton, sent to seize the arms and ammu
nition, were quickly upon the rioters, and took, the
loaded muskets and a keg of powder.
Dr. Bunting, surgeon to the City Iroops, left the
command, when the soldiers weie wounded with
brickbats, to go to the Commissioners Hall to pro
cure some adhesive plaster. Having his unilorm
on, and bearing a resemblance in the dark 10 Gen
Cadwallader, he was violently seized by some of
ihe exasperated mob, and but for his being recog
mzed by a number ot the rioters, would have bee.
torn to pieces. A despeiaie nimn struck nun iu tne
tace twice, and drew his sword from the scabbard
which the Doctor has never since seen.
Iu the great buttle on Sunday niglu, Gen. Cad
wallader wanted a company to volunteer to re.
move some obstructions that had been thrown
across the street by the mob, and which prevented
the cavalry from charging upon a piece ot cannon
ihe rioters had stationed at Fifth and Queen streets
Captain Fairlamb, of the Wayne Artillery, prompt
ly offered to execute the order, and did it, marching
hi8 gallant corps op the fctrect with a full
while the gun of the enemy was pointed at him
only a few rods in advance.
The riot in Southwaik is over, \esierday aft"
noon the magistrates of the district delivered the
keys of Ihe Church of St. Philip into the hands of
the congregation, the peace police were discharged,
ind a day and a night watchman selected to lake
care of the building. About #200 wtU cover the
d.imuge done to ihe Church by ihe inoh.
On Sunday evening, about seven o clock, tne
trooiw having arrived on the ground, the Cadwal
lader Gfeys, under Captain Scott, were detailed to
clear Queen street, between the church and se
cond street. The citizens who had charge ot the
church, had marched arm in ami down Queen,
and turning to the right, had passed down &? cond
street till the last row was fairly off the scene of
tiot, when a numberof men, principally underage,
armed with bludgeons and stones, pressed forward
on the military. Gen. Cadwallader, seeing the op
position at the corner, ordered Captain lull a com
pany of City Guards to the assistance of the Cad
wallader Greys, and the two companies, alter
great difficulty, succeeded in clearing out the
street to the Second street line. 'Ihe mob grow
ing more violent, no longer contented ltsdt with
abusive and insulting language, but managed to
prevent the companies front throwing out their
sentinels. Missiles ot all kinds were pitched or
ward on the ranks, taunts given, till soldier alter
soldier, when struck, or when personally threaten
ed and insulted,turned round.to the officers and ask
ed, "must we bear ell tins I"
The orders being, however, to stand with
grounded arms, the rnob increased in insolence and
rushed up to snatch the muskets trom the soldiers,
and several personal snuggles followed between
the rioters attempting to arr- st the arms and the
military to keep them. Captain Hill, when en
deavoring to clear the way, was seized by one of
ihe crowd, struck on the hack of the head with a
eluh, and flung to the ground. Volhes of stones
were thrown, a number of ihe volunteers injured,
and a sergeant of the Cadwallader Greys was car
ried seriously wounded lrom the grouud. It was
then that orders to fire were given, and his com
pany, together with the Cadwalladers Greys,
obeyed the command.
Such was the beginning cf the Htniggle, and at
it progressed, and the night grew datk, the "?"??
ness and malinnity of the rioters increased, ihe
Junior Artillerists, under Captain Drayton, wert
detailed to seize a large stand of arms and a keg ol
powder, at the Commissioners' Hall, and were sur
rounded when there by a swarm who had disco
vered their positiou, and who threatened to shoot
them down one by one as they emerged from un
der cover. The arrival of the Cadwallader Grays
dispersed the besiegers, but only temporarily, and
in a short time the military who had collected in
front of the church, became aware of the charac
ter of the adversary with whom they had to deal
Men were lurking about every corner, who, wheu
.hey felt secure in their ambush, would spring out
for a moment, tire on the soldiers, and then retreat
Cannon, stufled with old iron in every shape, were
wheeled down the little alleys below the church,
discharged suddenly, and then wheeled back
.Such an attack was it?secret, covert, murderous,
ungoverned by any ot the rules of civilized war
fare, and equalled only in brutality and cowardice
-?v Indian tactics, that the volunteers sustained till
midnight. For twenty-four hours at the lowest,
some of them for much longer, they had been kepi
on the ground without any thing but chance and im
perfect refreshment, and without sleep.
It has been asserted in various quarters that the
military were not warranted by any neccseity in
taking possession of St. Philip's church on Sunday
?that the civil force which had been in the church
until Sunday afternoon, were competent to protect
he building and willing to do so. We are inform

was only after two or three requests ot this nature
that the military were ordered to the spot. Their
?reaence was therefore not only justified, hut de
manded, and the commander or thetnse'ves had
no choice between the course adopted and a gro-s
neglect of duty. We believe that what is h- re
stated enn .?e fully substantiated. It is of little im
port whether the committees were authorised or

A vast amount of oratory has been displayed in
our streets within three or four days At everv
cornermen have been "laying it down" to each
other, with emphasis and gesture, sometimes in
heated controversy, sometimes in narration, some
limes in sage comments and explanations, some
times in stirring up the mind to mutiny, and some
times, we would fain believe, in pleading for kind
neiw and peace. It has been amusing to pass along
our streets and notice the attitude, manner, and
obvious excitement of the colloquiats gathered
here and there, fillerp, who live in the atreeta,
feeding on the gossip of the day. have enjoyed it ?
Some who have been telieved from occupation,
and have been running to and fro, in a fever of
curiosity, w ill l>e reluctant to g* back to the prose
of hard work. Hut the humane, the reflecting, the
industrious, will hail the return of quietness.
yesterday wc took a survey of the late scene of
riot in Poutltwark. For the benefit of distant rea
ders, it may lie well to describe it The streets
mentioned in the accounts, Front, Second and
Third streets, run north and south, parallel with
aiH near to the river Delaware. Queen street in
tersects these streets at right angles. The Church
of St Phillip is on the south side of Queen street,
between Second and Third streets, it is n good
sized building, and requires to be rough cast betare
us exterior will he finished. When the troops
fired, tliey were by Second and Queen streets
There are contradictory accounts as to the extent of
provocation and resistance given them before the
firing took place, brom what we could gather on
the spot, it appears tbnt a good many hard names
were hcstowi d on the soldiers, and afterwards
brickbats and bottles were thrown at them, and
finally an attempt was made to stab Captain Hill
writh his own sword, by a person who had him
down The impression therefore must have been
strong that the troops would not venture to fire
During the riots of May last they were taunted and
leered to fire, and did not fire. The firing between
the troops and mob wns principally up and down
Queen street, between Second and Front. The
toia.-es, trees, posts, tec., of the square hear ample
evidence of the scattering grape and canister shot.
At the tune when we write, attention has been
called ofl lrom the church. The issue lies between
the civil power and its military lorce an ft the in
siirgt nts Third street, between Chesnut ami W ill
nut, gives a lively idea ?f military display. Mount
ed troops and foot soldiers line the street, and tin
Girard Bank building, situated there, is ?h<: h'jd
quarters of the Major Generul, and is i?Uo conver
ted into a hospital for the wounded soldiery. The
rioters wish to have the affair in their own hands.
Death is threatened for any obnoxious soldier to
show himself on their ground. One who was re
cognised there since the military left the place,
was pursued by infuriated men, and barely escaped
w ith his lite. The district is quiet, but it is not the
quite of the supremacy of the law, while people
take the law into their own hands. A subordinate
soldier, who is bcur.d to obey orders eninnating in
the first instance from the civil uuthortty, is hardly
an object for vengeance.
It is said that peifect quiet has been restored
throughout the district of Southwark, and the
authorities of the district, deeming all danger at
an end, have surrendered the custody of Si. Philip's
Church to such persons es the Roman Catholic
Bishop has directed to take it in charge. The
Priest heretofore officiating there, lias left the city
tor a parish in ihe west, so that some other person
will, in due time, be placed over the affairs of the
church.
During the whole of yesterday the Natives were
collected in ihe lower part of the district of Houth
wark, in the neighborhood of the Wharton Market
house, mid in the neck. I hey talked of being
ready for action. It should be stated that these
are but few, and composed mostly of men who
have little or nothing to care for. There were u
number ot persons in the district yesterday, ex
amiiiing the indentations ot musket halls, etc., on
the windows, doors, trees, icc., but there was no
evidence of not. The lending Natives are opposed
to any infringement of the law, and their influence
u such, that the muss will hardly dare to d-pari
front the arrangements entered into. Should nn>
open manifestation be made, there will be dreai fill
havoc The military force is very strong?never
before was there such a force in the city.

Church. Things In ing thus uirunged, each (hitholm
contributed according to his n eaus, tow arils carrying the
project into elfect, and in a short time, a small church
was erected and consecrated by Bishnp Dubois, in which
ilia fuithtul hud at lest the hn| piners to he able to pray to
their common Saviour, ard to attend Divine Service
Things continued thus until the Catholic population, dai
ly arriving Irom France and other puns i t Europe, could
no longer lie accommodated in tue little church. Thanks
to the generosity of Mr. Lu Coutenlx, who had also given
a lot to the Irish Catholics, on which to liulld a church,
a separation was had between them and the undersigned,
French and (lotmans. But the emigration of Catholics
still continuing, rt the end of a lew y ears it became ur
gently necessary to erect a new church w hich could ac
commodate the increased number. Alter several prej ar
ifory Meetings, at which each Catholic subscribed ac
cording to Lis means, the largest church on this continent
was en C'.ed, enclosing the old one within i's walls, in
order not to interrupt tha sol vices. What is worthy ol
remark, notwithstanding that the members of the St
Louis church were mostly poor, and burdf nod with large
families, their money and labor alone contributed to tin
errc'ion of the church, and no debt whatever was con
Iracted 1
((Wore the erection of this new church, it wan agreed
with the consent of Mr. Le Uouteulx and Bishop Dubois
partly with a view to avoid the payment ol heavy taxes
and partly to gratify the w ishes ol a portion of the mem
bers of lb" church, that it should bo incorporated arr.ur

This was accordingly done, and a Board of Trustees was
elected by the congregation to administer the tnmpotal

Ji'i.v 11 ?Jtttt I) F'int and Elitha JCirhy vs. William
J1 Gwrt --The following caie involves u question of con
-iderahle importance to meichunta in general. 1 he
plaiulilTs are country merchants, who i-ought a bill of
-oods ol tlie defenda'*!, who is a whole-ale <h al* r ir do
mestic goods, at N? 78 Ct dar street. Having settled their
'?ill. they stated that they would send a cartroan lor them
on the ensuing day. On the day follow ing, a c* ttmaii
"ailed for the goods ond took them away, since which
>mu nothing has been hoard of either goods or cart man.
The present action is in form, for the nou delivery of the
gnods Tho question involved in the case i?. u bet her
the goods, having been paid lor, and ordered to l<e deliver
ed to a rartman, w ho would call lor them, wi re at the
risk ol the vender or of the pnrcharor. The Court havj; g
taken time to consider.decidtd thut though goods told and
'oft with tho,seller are at Uie risk of the purchaser, and if
they are lost or det* norntr without lilt (the seller's) laulr,
he is not responsible; yet that every merchant wsa
bound to take, oidinary care, (or such caie aa every pru
dent man takes of his own concerns) of goods rold and
left with hun to be called for, and see that they he proper
ly delivered 'o those anthonaed to receive them, and that
>n this case the defendant, not having nquired the r art
man to produce the usual receipt or otdtr book, or other
ruthority. to get the goods, had not r zeroised that oidina
?y care which the liw enjoined, ami he should therefore
give judgment against hun for the amount of the hill.
For plaintiffs, Mr A. It- l.ockwood ; for defendant, Mr.
