More about the " HI I lot Ortl llcatco"?Mr.
Barker's Reply to Misrepresentations.
On Saturday last for the first time 1 was favored
with the perusal of a pamphlet which hua keen put
into circulation by the authority of the Whig meet
ing which was convened at tne St Louis Exchange
on the 3it July, 18+1?professing to describe the
conduct of the Inspectors of the late election, and
the proceedings of the Legislature in relation to
the Elliott certificates, in which pamphlet I am
sorry to be compelled to say there are some errors,
also, some omissions.
What happened at any other Poll than that of the
First Ward Second Municipality, 1 have not any
knowledge, but as to what happened at that Poll 1
am not mistaken. The authors of the said pam
phlet are mistaken in saying that James P. Freret,
Etq. my associate inspector, adopted a separate box
and leceived the voies after the difficulty arose
about the Elliott voteB, without being recognized
by me. until the close of the Polls; the second box
was adopted by both,and not a ballot placed in it
which was not recognized by me?as well as by
Mr. Freret, at the tune, and before it was put into
that box. Only one ballot, (that of Mr. Kelly) was
placed in either box without my consent, and that
was put into the original box by Mr. Freret, betore
the second box was introducedthis led to the
compromise, alter which the business of the elec
tion was conducted with all possible despatch and
harmony, and uot a voter remained at the polls of
taring to vote when the hour arrived for closing;
and it is not known that a single voter lost his vole
by the short delay which took place. Hence, the
declaration that the Whig majority was probably
reduced forty or fifty by this delay, is an imaginary
figure as improbable, as their statement us to the
conduct of the two Inspectors, is erroneous To
have effected this majority of forty or fifty, there
must have been more than one hundred and fifty
good votes rejected, as the Whigs did not get two
thirds of the votes polled.
The statement I here make, the reader will find
corroborated by the procei verbal beariug the signa
tures of both Inspectors now on file in the office of
the State Department?a copy of which will be
found on page 37 of this book.
It will be seen by a perusal of the proces verbal
(page 31 to 47tof this pamphlet,) that Mr. Freret is
mistaken when he says that Mr. Barker hud given
his opinion in writing that the Elliott vote waB
good all that Mr. Barker urged was investigation,
which was refused, and to consider them good U
in due form, and not impeached.
After having thus described me es one of the of
fending Judges, the Committee go on to say:
'?The undersigned would only further observe,
that criminal prosecutions have been instituted
against the offending judges, who have been bound
over to appear before the Criminal Court, and true
bills oi indictment have been found against them "
This, so lar as relates to me, is all fiction, nor is
it true that bills of indictment against those judges
against whom proceedings are pending, have been
The committee have published in their pamphlet
the penalty of the law lor disfranchising a citizen,
but omitted to proclaim the penalty of the law tor
interfering with the Inspectors in the discharge ot
their duty. It is to be found in the Act of Novem
ber 7,1814,1st Mo: Digest page 431, sec. 5, and
is in the following wordBi?
" If it may be made to appear to the satisfaction
of the proper court that at any election held or to
be holden, under the laws of (his State, any intim
idation, threats^ or violence, shall have been used
or practised, with design to influence unduly, or to
overawe such election, or to restrain the freedom
of choice; or if any officer of election shall be
threatened, or violence used to his person, or be
interrupted in the execution of his duty, every per
son who shall be guilty of such intimidation,
threat, violence or interruption, being convicted
thereof, shall he fined in a sum not exceeding one
thousand dollars, and be imprisoned, not exceeding
three months."
The statement in the said pamphlet is obnoxious
to another objection?in page 8 they s?y.
" The report of the House of Representatives,
respecting them, (the Elliott certificates) discloses
a scene of gross neglect, fraud and corruption
throughout the whole process under which they
were issued, unparalleled in the history of this
? " They then go on to say:
" And the Senate in their proceedings, sitting as
a High Court of Impeachment under the solemnity
of an oath, after a laborious examination of testi
mony, and hearing eloquent and able counsel on
the part of Judge Elliott, adopted tlie following ar
ticles of Impeachment presented by the lower
In these articles of Impeachment which they set
forth at length in their pamphlet, it is among other
things stated, that 1748 certificates were unlaw
fully und corruptly caused and permitted to be is
sued between the 2d March, 1811, and the 1st Jan
uary, 1814, and which it is stated in the pamphlet,
that the Senate sitting as a High Court of Impeach
ment, adopted In place of which, the Court quali
fied their condemnation?saying?that the said
Benjamin C. Elliott was guilty ol the issuing of
some of the said certificates as charged, but not of
Ten members voting in the affirmative, and four
in the negative, "because they believed that the
question could not be divided." See page 30 of
the Official Journal of this trial.
And the Court further resolved,
"That the Senate in giving their votes upon the
articles of Impeachment in this case, are not to be
considered as expressing, and do not intend to ex
press an opinion as to the right of the parties pos
sessing certificates of naturalization issued from
Judge Elliott's Court, to enjoy and exercise the
franchise of American Citizens."
This resolution is withheld from the pamphlet in
Here we have evidence that Mr. Freret was mis
taken when he said (see page 34,) that the Legis
lature had impeached the Elliott certificates.
It will not escape notice that the charges against
Judge Elliott are limited to a period subsequent to
the 2d of March, 1841; and yet all the certificates
issued by him for some six or eight years, during
the whole course of his judgeship, are to be consH
dered a nullity, on the authority of these proceed
ings, and without regard to the rights ot parties
holding them!
The aforesaid Thomas Quinn was among the
number disfranchised by this act of injustice ; his
certificate, (see page 41) was in due form, and as
good as any certificate of naturalization granted by
any court in the United States, yet he was disfran
chised by the arbitrary conduct of the Whig In
Again, this Committee say, that
"Previous to the election it was publicly stated,
and indeed proclaimed, that the locofoco party
were determined, notwithstanding the notorious
and acknowledged frauds in issuing the Elliott
certificates, that these votes should be received, or
they would close the voting in the Whig Wards."
So far as I was concerned they are mistaken, as
is proved by my proposition to Mr. Freret the day
before the election?to examine into the validity
of all the Elliott certificates which should be pre
sented, rejecting such as should appear to have been
improperly granted. Also, by my report to a pub
lic meeting held the same evening, of Mr. Freret's
Irefusal to agree to this proposition, and his deter
mination to reject all the Elliott certificates with
out enquiry ; with a notification to the meeting that
1 should not have the capacity to resist any such an
act of power; and again, my proposition to leave
the questions which might arise to the Whig Judge
from whom we derived our appointment; and
finally, my letter written to that Judge on the
momma ot the election, and before it began, inti
mating my wish for another to be appointed in|my
Can there be stronger evidence that I was not
obnoxious to the charge this Committee hnve
thought proper to make against all the Democratic
Inspectors on the authority of public rumor!
As to the supposition that the Elliott voters were
hired to go to the polls to interrupt the election?
the Committee rely on their own imagination,with
out having adduced a particle of proof, and no
circumstance has come to my knowledge to war
rant the supposition, that any such criminal con
duct took place!
However probable that men willing to make so
grave and fearful a cha-ge against others without
the slightest proof, would not balk at committing
such acts themselves?1 will not return the compli
ment by accusing them of having sent a man to
the polls with one of the corrupt Elliott certificates,
and what they call a forged receipt to interrupt the
election, in tne hope of benefit from the moral in
fluence of leading the public to believe the Demo
crats had done the vile deed.
It is not my province to remark on the other part
of the statements put forth in the said pamphlet
further than to say, that?the reader of every par
ty will be much less likely to afford it his tall cre
dence than he would have been?had not the er
rors and omission I have pointed out been permit
ted to escape the notice of this Committee before
they gave their signatures to the public.
The Whigs pretend that their intention was to
recommend only such foreigners, for naturalize
tion as could furnish legal proof of the requi
sites for citizenship s?if this be so, let them tell
us what is meant by the note of the Secre
tary of the Clay Club to Mr Gaiennie written
in French, and published in that language on page
39 of the otiicial Journal of Elliott'B trial?and
also on cage 8 of thia book?the translation ol
which reads thus
"Mr'L. U. Gaienne."
"A Mr. Martiu and his son have returned irom
Lafayette, without having been naturalized. Judge
Elliott requiring their witnesses; when you told
Mr. Martin it was not necessary . Shall I tell these
persons to provide themselves with witnesses."
" Your ob't servant," Charles Gurnet.
The Whigs threaten if they get into .power that
they will repeal all the naturalization laws; if they
should do this?such repeal could not apply to
those who shall have had recorded, a declaration
to become citizens?as the declaration would se
cure a vested right. Hence it behoves every per
son now in the United States who was born in a
foreign laud, as also all those who shall hereafter
arrive in the United States, tofmake the declara
tion before a Court ol competent jurisdiction with
out the least delay. Jacob Barker.
Thk Yacht Squadron.?The harbor of this
fashionatile watering place (Newport, R. I.), has
been enlivened, for the last few days, by the appearance
of the yacht squadron or New YotR, and the crack (ail
ing craft of Botton. The admirer* of boat failing in New
York, with a view to the better encouragement of build
er* and other artists, have organised thamse.ves into a
Club, and elected John C Stevens, Esq., of New York, as
their Commodore. As lar as I can learn, the squadron
now consists of the following boats:?
Oimcrack, Stevens, owner, 34 tons, schooner.
Cygnet, F.dgars, " 45 " "
Spray, Wilkes, " "
Mist, Depeatt, " 45 " "
Dream, Scnuylcr, " 38 " "
LaCoquille, Jay, " 36 " "
Minus, Waterbury, "
Tetrel, Rollins, " 7 " sloop.
In addition to these, there have been here, at different
times, the lielle, schooner, 78 tons, formerly a pilot boat
of Boston, chattered by Mr. Foibes, of Boston, with a
party of his friends?the Northern Light, Colonel Win
chester, 70 tons?and the Labcet, 33 tons, Mr. Swett?
also, two sloops, used as ireighting vessels on the
North River and vicinity ol New York, one of
which was chartered by some gentlemen of that city.
It had been announced in the newspapers, that a Regatta,
for all Yachts, was to come off nt Newport, on a given
day?but no arrangement ot the kind had been made In
isct, it was an experimental trial of the qualities of the
various boats of the New York Squadron, most of which
were on their first cruise. Various trials of speed had
taken place, between the vessels of the squadron, on their
cruise from New York, and with them and the Belle, be
fore my arrival at this place?and, as the reports of their
results are so various and so contradictory, 1 tefer you to
the Newport papers for the accounts of the same The
Yachts from New Yoik are flne looking beats?and their
models essentially different Irom anything seen on your
side of Cape Cod. Some of them have centre boards?a
machine which, in my Judgment, entirely alters the char
acter of the vessel, and which should not be tolerated in
any boat that pretends to sail in blue water. The boat of
the Commodore, the Oimcrack, is well entitled to her
name. It would be idle for me, in the limits of a single
letter, to describe her peculiarities, and contrivances, to
enable her to go ahead?and, inasmuch as it is probable
that her highly scientific and liberal owner will abandon
these notions, and build for himself a vessel according to
legitimate rules, adapted to the high position to which he
lias been unanimously chosen, I pass ;al 1 bet oddities by.
The handsomest boat in the squadron, to the sailor's eye,
and the admitted fastest boat, Is the Cygnet. Her rig is
that of our Boston boats, but her model is entirely differ
ent. In interior arrangements, the New York boats
are entirely different from ours. They cannot
carry so many?but the passengers they do take
have the comforts of shore life, with the excite
ment of the sea. We commend their interior to the
careful scrutiny of our builder* and their employers.
As I have before mentioned, the t>oats had various trials
of speed, before the arrival of the Northern Light. This
splendid vacht, so well known to all the amateurs of your
city, arrived at Newport on Thursday night, alter a pas
sage of fifty three hours?fourteen of which were passed
at anchor, between Bandy Point and Nantucket Light, in
a dense fog. Therestof the time she had light ana head
winds and tides. On Friday morning the wind blew from
South and Southwest. Col. Winchester ordered his boat
under weigh at 11 o'clock, and expressed his desire to try
the speed ol his yacht with thai of any vessel of the squad
ron, or the sloop, which I mentioned before. The wind,
however, was too much, in the estimation of (he gentle
men, lor any of them to venture out?aud the Light, there
fore, stood out alone. He put on her three Sail*, passed
Beaver Tail Light, close hauled, stood some eight or nine
miles to windward and returned, sailed twice across
Newport harbor, and came to anchor. On Saturday the
wind was from about the same point, but net so fresh?and
at,the invitation of the owners of the Cygnet, the Light
and Cygnet stood out, in order to try their powers. It
was agreed by the respective owners of the boats, that the
trial snotild commence at Beaver Tail Light, thence dead
to windward. The Cygnet stood out some twenty minutes
ahead, under her iib and mainsail, the Light, following
Two miles to the leeward of Beaver Tail Light the North
ern Light act her foresail and stood for the Cygnet,
which boat had come to under her three sails The
Northern Light passed Under the stern oi the Cygnet and
came to, taking a leeward position directly abreast of the
Cygnet, and about twenty-flve yards distant?time 3
o'clock 30 minutes. The Cygnet filled away immediately,
which movement was followed by the Northern Light, and
both boat* stood out with the larboard tacks aboard. The
wind modera'e, with some sea. Alter standing on this
tack for about a mile, the Northern Light tacked, leaving
the Cygnet to leeward, and astern some distance. At 18
minutes past three, the Northern Light hauled her jib
sheet to windward, at which time the Cygnet was to lee
ward and astern. At 38 minutes past 3, the Cygnet was I
abreast of the Northern Light It will be seen, therefore,
that in a race of 48 minutes, while both boats stood on
their course, the Northern Light had beaten the Cygnet
ten minutes. Tho time allowed in the K.nglish yacht
races, by the largest to the smallest boat, is a minute a
ton, in a race of fifty miles. It will be seen that the Light
beat the Cygnet even more than the difference to be al
lowed for her tonnage. That the Northern Light
would beat the Cygnet, was expected by those who
knew the capacity of the former boat?lint that
the difference in their performances should be so
great, was unexpected by all; especially by the gen
tlemanly proprietor* of the Cygnet, who had, in
t'.ieircontest with the Belle, fair reason to believe them
selves iqttal, at least, to that boat which was said to be
superior to the Northern Light in all situations?a matter,
however, which is somewhat doubtful, a* the Belie and
the Northern Light have never had n trial of speed with
each other. The seal and interest manifested by the
members of the New York squadron, give great hopes
that their Club will increase in numbers, and be worthy
of the great commercial city to which it belong*, t think,
from what I observed, that the members tf the squadron
will not, however, he satisfied with the present size of
their boats?and that another year will show our Boston
amateurs craft of a tonnage that may fairly expect to try
the fastest of our boats, in all weather*.?Nttcporl Lrittr

What in the name of heaven are we alt coming

against the Mormons?they are urged on by a few
notorious blacklegs. A fellow by the name of
Thomas J. Perkins once sold a farm to au English

Dkar Sir
I am now in the queen city, the seat of the wes
tern empire. It is indeed a beautiful city, but the
streets are in a worse state than the streets of any
other city in this country, or in any other within
my knowledge. They are paved with lime stone,
and so numerous are the excavations mads by car
riages passing over them, that it is almost impossi
ble to move faster than a walk. For the last two
miles of our journey to this city, we moved along
with a slow hearse like pace. The driver in
formed me that they never could drive through the
city faster than a walk But we had a very lively
company of passengers on board; General Cass and
Senator Norvall of Michigan, were among the pas
sengers. General Cass on his way from Columbus
to this place, stopped a few hours at Hamilton, and
addressed a large enthusiastic meeting ol the de
mocracy. He is on his way to Tennessee, to pay
his respects to the hero of New Orleans " to see
the old general once more belore he dies.
He was not expected to be at Hamilton.
We arrived there about twelve o'clock on
Tuesday laBt; an immense procession had
been formed, and were moving on with their
cheering music and lloating banners. Soon s>,er
we arrived, I informed one of the Marshals of the
day that General Cass had just arrived. In live
minutes the word was passed along the line for two
miles; each division giving nine cheers for the de
fender of our country's glory. The multitude as
sembled on the green nenr the Court house, and a
young man, whom we did not know, introduteu
the General to the crowd, and made some very ap
propriate remark respecting the character and ser
vices of him who was about to address them. 1 ne
General arose, and the multitude gave three times
three hearty cheers. He then addressed the au
dience for more than hour. It was one of the finest
efforts I have heard for a long time. I was stand
ing near him during the whole of hi? speech, and 1
have seldom seen an audience more delighted.
Mr. Todd, the candidate lor Governor, followed
Gen Cass in a very enthusiastic speech of one
hour and a hall. Several others were to speak
when we left. General Cass and Senator Norvall
addressed a large and enthusiastic meeting in this
city on Thursday evening. Both parties are awake
in this part of the country. You may rely upon it
there will be a hard fought battle here this fall
Both parties are confident of success.
Riding on horseback seems to be a lavorile
amusement for the young people here. 1 resolved
last evening to take a ride into the country at
an early hour this morning, and accordingly
ordered a carriage to be ready at hall-past lour.
We were ready at the hour appointed, und took
our course in a north-west direction, over the hor
rid pavements of the city. After riding about two
miles, we found one of the finest roads in the
country.SWe rode leisurely along, turning our
eyes iu every direction, as is usual when travelling
a road for the first time. When we were about
three miles fromjthe city.we saw,a mile behind us.
six gentlemen and ladies, with their horses in full
run. Iu a few minutes they came up and shot by
uh with a speed that almost made me shudder.
The lady that led the. race was seated on a large
black hone, apparently well trained to the course.
She sat with as much composure, at the speed ol a
mile in three minutes, as if she had been seated
I on the sofa in her parlor. Her lover (as we sup
pose) was close at her side, but two or three leet
in the rear. The other lour were close in the rear.
This exceeded any thing I have ever seen in Eng
land. Such rapid riding must he attended with a
great deal ot danger. A young lady, a lew months
ngo, in this place, was thrown lrom her horse, and
killed ins'antly. She was to have been married on
the day she was buried. .
An almost runaway marriage came oil in this
place a few days ago. A young man formerly lrom
New York, had |secured the affections ol a beauti
ful young heiress of this place. She was an only
daughter?the idol of her parents. They objected
to the match, and determined, If possible, lo pre
vent it. They coaxed, and hired, and promised;
and when they found that would not do, they
threatened. Still she declared ahc loved the young
man, arid would marry him. They told her then
she should leave their house, and that Ihey would
disinherit her. She wasunder the ageot eighteen,
und could not be married without the consent ol
parents. This legal provision they attempted to
avoid. The young lady left the house ot her la
ther, and in one hour was on her way with her
lover to another State. On arriving there they
found the same legal prohibitions. They returned
to this city incog, went or bovd one ?t the steam
boats, and were about to leave to ny to some
more congenial spot, where hymen s gentle i
cord could be entwined "without a why
or wherefore." They were discovered, and were
sent to the father, who came with an officer
to arrest his daughter. The matter soon became
noised abroad, and thousands gathered around
the boat to see the sport. They had agreed
to tell her father if they were discovered,
that they were married. This worked well.
?When the father came on board Hie boat
with the officer, attended by several friends, the
voung lady stepped forward, took her lather by the
hand, kissed him affectionately, then turning to
her lover, said, " lather, this is my husband. The
father made no reply, but ai he looked upon the
young man, then lurked upon hie lip the curl ot in
dignation. " Father, I love him," she continued ;
" 1 will live with htm, or die for htm if necessary;
he is my equal in every respect, and more dear to
me than all the world besides. I love you?I love
my dear mother?1 should be ((lad to inherit your
wealth?but 1 cheerfully resign all [or him.
I am willing to foisake yon for ever lor mm, and
not only would I leave a lather, but even a mother,
and houses and landa for him. Besides Ins, all
friendahip is cold, and without his presence this
world is as dreary as the tomb. Father, do you
wish to make your daughter happy Mnst sure
ly I do," said the father. " Then,'' said the daugh
ter, "recognize this young man as your son
and the lawful husband ol your daughter, and I
am happy." The tears began to flow copiousJy
from the eyes of the father, as he hi l<l bis
daughter's hand and listened tother burning elo
quence "My daughter," said the father, I ?ui>
pose it is too late now lor me to object. lake ine
young man with you to our carriage, which stands
on the shore, and go to our house I shall be .there
in a few minutes, and we will try to settle the
whole matter." "Most surely," said the daughter,
and taking the arm of her lover, she was handed
into the carriage, and soon drove on to the splendid
mansion of Judge F. The consent of the parents
was obtained?a license procuied-the^ clergyman
sent for, and the marriage, as the father thought,
re-sole mailed. The young married couple are now
enjoying the sweets of the honeymoon?caressed
by Iriends, and almost envied by all their ac
quaintances. Youts, in haste,

Education and Morale in New Enqlanil?Ncw
Haven and Sprinptitld Convention.
Since I left New York, now two weeks, 1 have
wandered over a goodly part ol Connecticut, and
am thus fur in the interior ol the old Bay State.
The inhabitants of this section of country, you arc
well aware, have ever been celebrated lor their
piety and good morals; and it we lind here, at
times, individuals debased and blackened with
crimes, they are but exceptions to a general rule,
and tend to give a brighter and clearer hue to the
remainder. The people, too, are remarkably well
informed?their excellent school system having
done more here to elevate the masses, thin in any
other county on the lace of the globe. Even .the
children who have scarcely entered their teens will
keep up as regular and connected a conversation
ou general subjects as many grey-headed men, who
arrogate to themselves much learning Even the
little prattling children are posset-Bed ol a quickness
and sagacity, a kind of innate knowledge of things
which is truly astonishing. This is not confined
to that class either, who sre evei striving to ioice
knowledge upon their offspring prematurely, but
those children which tire allowed to "come up ' hs
contradistinguished to be "brought up," (i e.) ihoee
growing up without any particular care or inten
tion, or possessed of the same Hiitness and quick
wittedness, or as it might be called "mother wit."
The philosophy ol this 1 do not understand, and
willingly leave it to wiser heads to account lor.
Of the benutilul and quiet city of New llaven.
your readers want no information, lis beautiful
green aud peaceful walks, overhung and shaded by
the wide spreading elms, forming, as they stretch
forth their lengthened and fibrous arms, a gothic
arch, of most elaborate workmanship, surpassing
in beauty, grandness and extent, the triumphal
arches of old Koine, erected to do homage to her
Cicsars. A fit place, indeed, lor the temple ol
learning, is this city of elms, and the solemn and
quiet grandeur with which these majestic forest
trees bend and bow, and I suppose whisper and
hold convers.' with each other, seem to impart a
kind of fearful solemnity to the inhabitants; L?r iu
stead of seeking these pleasant walks snd agree
able shade, or inhaling the cool and refreshing
breeze of evening, as the bright and silvery moon
peeping through the green foliage, stops to catch
the sound of lovers' voices, smiling, hides itself
again behind some fleeting cloud. 1 say, instead of
all this, these walks are deserted?nothing enjoys
this delightful shade but the green gram beneath,
and the bright moon Iihh nothing to smile upon but
towering spires and college walls. Alas! ihat all
life nnd animation should be driven from the bo
soms of those inhabiting such a beautiful place.
The railroad rout Irom New Haven to Hartford is
a very agreeable one,though the land, much ot the
distance, is poor und sterile. Hartford has mote
the appearance of business than New Haven, and
here, too, in order to rival Yale, is sitnuted W ish,
ington College, the grounds of which lo me, are
far more beautiful and appropriate than those about
the elder temple. Beside the new Watlswortli
Athenicum, a noble structure, there are many
things worthy of note, but 1 will leave them for a fu
ture letter 1 arrived in Springfield on the day of
the great whig mass convention, und although my
love runs a little in that direction, yet I must con
fess I was sadly disappointed in the numbers and
enthusiasm. To see the military turn out lo guard
and escort un assemblage not equal in numbers to
those in New York of either party, on most any
occasion, seemed curious enough. Daniel Web
ster addressed the convention in one of his heavy,
loagy, dull speeches, which elicited no feeling or
enthusiasm, In fact, it wns a dull, insipid affair,
and which no one, except the hotel-keeper* and

Curious Prockeihnos at the Burial ot Cornk,
the Kenhsklakk " Indian."?A corres|>ondent of
the Albany Atlas, writing from East Nassau, Aug.
12, gives an account of the luueral ol young Corse, a
journeyman shoemaker disguised as un Indian,
who was killed by h fall from his hnrse during the
late conference of Gov. Bouck with the tenants ot
the young Patroon. He says: "the time desig
nated for the ceremony was less than twtniy-lour
hours alter the fatal termination ol the accident;
vet on arriving at the church a little before two, 1
found a very large number of inen, women and
children, who had come lrom all parts ol the sur
rounding country. Conspicuous among them wns
the celebrated Indian force They were on horse
back, riding two and two, in costume and masked;
and at a little distance, made a strange and some
what formidable appearance. Tin chiefs, of win m
there were four or live, rode in advance, and were
distinguished from the simple warriors by a greater
|vrofusion of red, blue and black stripes, and bits of
cloth sewed upon their calico dresses. 1 counted
tliein*-nincty nix in number?rank and file ; and as
this was a day of parade, this in probably their
whole number. They escorted the corpse, and
between two ol the chiefs rode one ot the minis
ters who was to officiate. The musicians w? re in
another waggon, with two Iihsh drums, a bugle and
other instruments. By this time, there were about
two thousand live hundred people on the ground.
" The band rode up to the green where the ser
vices were to be performed. The war Chief gave
the order to dismount?saying, 'Let some of the
white men tie your horses.' Upon hearing this or
der, many of the spectators seized the homes with
great alacrity. The corpse was p'.aced on a bier,
in the centre ol the green The Indians formed a
circle around it, and the relatives of the deceased
were admitted into the centre. The two official
clergymen mounted a wagon, from which Un
horses had been detached, and the chief din cted
the spectators to keep silent, and requested the
ministers to begin. Their remarks were in gene
ral appropriate. One ot thern called the Indians
"an association, contending for liber'y and free
men"?but afterwards seemed to ilmik better of
it, and towards the close addressed them particu
larly?saying, that it was not for a man in his sta
tion to express an opinion as to the correctness of
their proceedings, hut he hoped the death of iheir
companion woula teach them a lesson ol caution?
caution in all their deliberations und in all their ac
"All that wished having gazed upon the de
ceased, the band formed into a procession, preced
ed by music as before, and took its way towards
the burying ground.
"They formed a circle around tin- grave, and
the deceased warrior being deposited, one of ilie
chiefs designated as ' the Prophet of the irihe,' ad
dressed the people. He entered into an explana
tion ol the object of the association. They were
contending for the freedom of which n usurper hud
deprived them. They were not contending sgeirnt
the usur|>er himerll, but against the wrong, and ie
sistanceto that wrong had grown into a principle,
and as long as that principle existed, th< y would
never lay down fh-* st?*el nnd the gun. They wi-tc
not contending for their own rights merely, but tor
the benefit of their neighbors also: that they were
blood connections ol many who stood around
them, anil he assured their white brethren that
nlih ough they were obliged to darken tb-ir faces,
they h id hearts like their white brethren.
" Alter giving way lor a brother, who attempted
a i peech and failed, he announced that a monu
ment would he erected over the grave ot the de

butions lor the purpose from the tribes
"The impression left on my mind, Irom what I
saw and heard, is that nearly the whole ol that,
country approves of the resistance which is offered
to the service ot Mr Van Rensselaer's papers, and
a leeling ol confidence has been infused in the
ranks of the iaaurgents by the fact that Governor
Bouck has met to negotiate wi'h them <>n their
own ground."
