AWFUL TRAGEDY AT NASHVILLE.
We see from the Nashville papers of the
17th inst., that a rencounter took place in
that city, oo Saturday, the 11th, between
Robert Porterfield and E. Z. C. Judson,
which terminated in the death of Por.erfield.
We gather the following facta of the case
from the Nashville Whig: Judson had sta
ted that he had criminal intercourse with
Porterfield's wife; on b-mg informed of
which, Porterfield sought an interview with
Judson, who denied ever having mad« uuch
statement. He afterwards admitted to an
individual, at whose office the interview was
held, that he had made the statement, but
to prevent the Porterfields Iront taking his
life, he had denied it. The affair might
have stopped here, but for tbe (act that on
Friday, Judson and Mrs. Porterfield were
known lobe alone together for a considera
ble tune at the grave yard in the vicinity of
town. On being informed of this fact, Por
'erfield, who is said to have been n most
confiding and devoted husband, exhibited
evidence* ol deep mortification and distress;
>nd on Saturday, while walking with his
orother, met with Judson near the Sulphur
Springs, where a roncoatre immediately
ook place. Three »hots were fired at Jud
son, he backing the while, professing a dis
inclination lo shout. After the third shot,
oe fired and shot R >bt. Porterfield in the
forehead, just above the right eye, of
which wound he died about 11 o'clock that
A large crowd aoon collected in and
around the Court House, where Judson, who
had been immediately apprehended, had
been brought before an examining court.—
I he Court was in the act of picturing an
order of commitment lo jail, when John
Porterfield mode his appearance in the court
room, and the cry burst from the crowd—
"make way for John Porterfield — let him
kill Judson!" The sheriff attempted lo pre
vent Porterfield (rom committing violence
upon Judson, but waa unsuccessful, being
overpowered by the friends of Porterfield.
Drawing a revolving pistol, he commenced
firing at Judson. who started in a run out ol
ihe court house, Porterfield in close pursuit
tiring at him, to the City Hotel, ana up the
staircaae ol the Hotel. Judson, in hopes of
effecting his escape, jumped from the porti
co of the third story, and fell to the ground
stoned by the fall. He was then, without
further molestation, conveyed by the officers
to the jail.
About ten o'clock that night, a consider
able crowd of peraous proceeded to ihe jail,
and against ihe reinonsi ranees of ihe jailor,
possessed themselves oflhe keys, seized Jud
and proceeded with him lo the public
square, with the intention of hanging him.
The rope with which they attempted to
hang him, broke. Reason had by this time
began to resume its sway, and Judson tsu*
finally carried back and delivered into the
hands ol the jailor, by ihe aarne party who
had taken him pul- Hi* situation is some

I SITED STATU JOl'XNAL FOB THB
We lasuetoday the first number of tlie nrw
serre» of Ihe Democratic Expositor and U. S.
Journal for the country , which we consider the
cheapest publication ever offered to the Ameri
can public. It will be puohshed wrekly instead
of semi-moottily aa heretofore while under the
charge of Mr. Kendall, and although It will
contain more than double the amount qf matter,
there will be no increase of the subscription
price. Tlie new publishers propose to furnish
their subscribers with a volume of
at the unprecedented low price of ONE DOL
LAR onfy/ Being the cheapest periodical ever
before issued in this country.
Tlie Expositor will coolinue to he a faithful
and fearless expounder ot the true principles of
Jeffersonian Democracy, aa it ha* been under
it* late highly gifted editor, who we are encour
aged to hope, will materially aid us with articles
from his eloqurot pen ; lis pages will be adorned
hy contributions from the most distinguished po
litical writers in tlie United States- Neither
pains or exoense will be spared, to make it wor
thy of being coDsidered a text book for the de
mocracy in future generations. Tlie publishers
intend it shall occupy the high ground sustained
by Niles' Meekly Register, in tbe palmy day*
of that useful publication; it shall be a record
of important political facts, for future use and
reference, as well as an able expounder ol still
more important political Irulba, which will live
through all time, and eventually will revolution
ize tbe world.
We shall unremittingly, aod with the whole
soul, devote ourselves to tlie cause of universal
republican education ; to this end we shall zeal
ously endeavor to reform every college in A
mettra, and establish a system to educate all the
children in the land in tlie saving principles of
American Liberty, instead of, at present, grow
ing up in thoughtless, unprovided
what is even worse, if possible, becoming indoc
trin.ted with tbe baleful principles of English
monarchy and aristocracy, the only system af
education pursued at our fashionable **«*>*• '»«•

We shall oppose all monopolies—a high Pro

Bank—Distribution—Assumption of tlie Stale
Debts—with unflagging, unremitting seal All
these as well as oilier Federal heresies, will be
handled without gloves. lo short it shall be vol
ume worthy of being preserved by every lover
of our republican institutions.
We shall pay tlie strictest attention to its busi

Those who with to subscribe may place the most
implicit reliance upon our pledge that it shall be
published and mailed each week, wiih unfailing
promptitude and regularity; no one shall have
tlie slightest occasion to find fault in this respect.
