Those who are acquaintcd with him, and thc source from which these chargcs emenated, laugh at them; and therc are cnough such pcoplc in thc county and Statc. Great cflbrts have bcen made for thc cause of tcmperance in Bridgewater, but contrary to thc e.xpectations ofthc Pink eyes, that town did n't choosc to follow their dictntion. and now, to further pro mote the causc, it is assertcd that of the 140 Liberal voters in that town "G8 are common drunkardsl" A morc base and villainous charge never was made, even in thc paper that put forth this abomniable one. Every body knows it is a barefaced, unmitigated lie, for which therc is neith cr palliation or excuse. How much wil thc cause of temperance in Bridgewater be promoted by such a course as this? All these things go dircctly to show that we were nght in denouncing thc mcasures of the Pinkeyes and to convincc rational men that notwithstanding all thc nbuse we havo becn compclled tojjuffer iu iiavo ul-ch on mo siao oi irutn and aound policy.

After the orgntiization of the village meeting, when the election of clerk canie ud. one of "Powcrs" friends moved thai the election be made by nomirialion, friend of the other candidatc, objected and the vote was fairlv tried. It was evident from the vote. which was a test one he tween tho parties, that "Powers' " day were numbered, and then, when he fe the halter draw about his neclc, and knew that he would be di?gracefully beaten if he ran. he. unon being noniinalcd by one of his friends, begged to be cxcuscd from bc ing publicly hangcd. 1 1 is declining as he did. after he was. in lact, beaten, set the housc in a broad grin. The votes wcrc as follows: Thomas E. Powers 3 Charlcs P. Marsh, G (regularly nomina ted liy the Pinkcyes) Charlcs G. Eastman, 55. The vote was not public announced.and the statement is given from the lips of those who stood by the desk when the ballots were counted. Thc votes of "Powcrs' and Mr Marsh (not a Pinkeyo by-the-way thounh some ot them voteu lor nim,) are known to be correct.

COL. SAMUEL NUTT AND KIDNAP- P1NG SLAVES. Thc public will remember a horribly- bloody story got up just before the Septem ber election about Col. Nutt, and S. T. B&iley, Etq. of Geo., nttempting to regain possession of a tun-away slave belonging to the lattcr gentlemau. The nwful affair was nnnounced in the Vermont Freeman, the Statc Abolition pa per, Ang. 20, after the followiiig manner: HOLD THE MISCREANTUP, THAT Fil KEM EN M A Y LOOK UPON HIM! Mn Editok: We loarn, from undoubt- ed authority, that on Wednesday, the 14th of August iust., a femalo was in open day cnuglu, bnund with bed cnrds, and thrown into a waggon, (as a shecp or swine would bc east,) and started for the land of slave ry ! and this too in the frcc air, amid the frec hiilsof Vermont, in tho town of Hart ford, in Windsor county!! It seems that an animal. dressed like a man, (though it would be libelling humanUy to call him a man, bccause destitute of those qualifica tions which conslitute a man.) liy thc nnme of Bailey, from the slate of Georgia, canie into Vermont a lew weeks since on n vis it to his relatives.bringing with him this fe inale, whom he called his slave. She hav ing bcen informcd that hcr pretended own- cr had no legal claim to hcr by our laws, concluded for the future to be hcr own owner. She therefore lefi the place of her inaster's temporary residcnce and sought, a retreat among some friends of sufleriug liimnnity a lew milcs dislance, unlil this SOUTHERN HYENA, hcr master.shoiild return lo the 'chivalrous' land of robbery nd blood. But this specimen of tlic no- ble generosity of the slaveholder was not ius to be balked. He procurcd n misera- ble beiiir, by the name of Col. Samuol Nutt of Hartford, a Justlce of the Peacc for Windsor County, lo turn calchpolc and ferret out the lurking place of the slave. And having foiind her placc of retreat these two mrignate.", n Georgia Slaveholder nnd n Vermonl Macistrate, proceeded to bitid their follow beiug hand and foot, in open day, in the presencc of several fe- males.tliTewhcrtnto a wnggon,and the slnvc mlder drovo olt wtth Ius victim neithcr oT whom have becn since seen in the vi cinity, and ere this time, no doubt, she has suffered tho full mcasure of thc nenally which slavcholders nlwiys inflict on those ciiattels' whopresumc tothtnk themselves lurrmn heings and entillcd to the rights of lumanitv. Vermonters! what think yc of slavery on on your own Green Monntam soil? What think yo of that Bailey, tho Blave holdcr? What h noble Prcsidont of tho United Statc he would-be! Howt he would.br. carcful to guard tho rights of the most humhle individual of tho community! But, frecmen of Vermont, thnt dastardly Bailey is noworsethnn your Polk nnd your Clay. Nny not so bad.

As for Samuel Nutt, the slaveholder cntchpnic, his ueens wm hc recorued in characters so tangible, that neither he, nor his purse, nor his pnsterity, will foriret ihe slavcholder's calchpole, Samuel Nutt. Yours, &c, AMICUS. From this flaring and naming text, thc Granitc Freeman, an abolition paper prin tcd at Concord, N. II., prcaclied as fo lows, Aug., 20: Slavcrii in Vermont, A slaveholder brought his female slave to Hartford, Vt recenily, and she relused to return wit liun. She escaped from him but by the issistance ol a Justice of the Peace, was recapturcd, boutid and convcycd back into hopcless hondage. 1 he poor crc.iture hiid recenily been tom from her husband who had recently been sold in anolhcr diroc tion, and she bore upon her persnn the marks of very cruel usage. Wo hope lor the credit of the good people of Ilart ford, that llns oulruge was periietrated wiihout their knowledge. We are loth to believe they would havo permitted it. We hope they will at least teach the Justice of ihe. Peace, who allowed himself tobe used for so base a purposo, the truc spirit of Vermont law. And tho Middlesex Stantlard, nnothc nbolitinn paper printed at Lowell, Ms., al so.on the sameday preached from thesamc text, ns follows: Morc of thc Slave case We find in the last Green Mountain Freeman n commu uicaiion dciailiug thc particulars of a case ot kidnapping or tlave-calcliing, in Ilari land, Vt., doubtless the same per.on wlm was'hurried through on the cars fron Nasliua to Bosion on thc lGlh. It ap ppnrs that one Baucy, from the statc of Georgia, went lo Vermont a few wcek since on n visit to his rclatives.tnkitig with him n woman whom he called his slave. She, having been inforined that her prelen ded owner hndno legal claim to her on thi Iree sml ot Vermont, sought n retreat among some friends of humanily n few niilps distnul.

The tri- nl was attended by Judge Ilutchison who wo understand wassatiafied that the charg cs in uic i' recman were lalse. Col. Nutt, shorlly after addrcssed a lol ter to the editor of the Freeman calling on him for the name of ihe author of the scur- rilous and bombattic effusion of August 23d, signed "Amicus," and informing him that he must do one of two things, back out or back up. In reply to which prcssing call, the Freeman of Ocl. 25th contained the following: Mti Ehtok: You, and your readers will doubtless recollecta comrnunicntion in the Freeman of Aug. 23, animadveriini' upon what was then believed to be a cruel case of the forcible abduclion of a slave from our slate back into slavcrv. That commiinicalion was penned tlie same day on which that transactinn was related to me and substnntially as I received il. My iniormant is an intelligciint and pious ministerolthe cospel who larried in Ilart ford, (ihe sceneof the supposed trnnsac- tinn.) the night imniediatelt following it Ile related the facis in presence of fivp or six persons, including mvsclf, nnd g.ivc the names of cizens of Hartford, (sonieof wnoml knew to he men ol uniioubted integrily.Jas his authority On the slreiiflh of such authotiiy I furnished you that coni mtinication, recitiug llie historv as it was related lomc, and which I mvself believed to bc the truc statpmcnt nl facls, ns did al so my informani, for he remarked at ihe time, that therc could bc no doubt of thc fact, coniing from such rcputable authority. But, Mr Editor, I rejoice, for ihe honor of eur slate ns well as for thc credil ol thc persons supposed to be implicaled, that the most rcvolling porlion ol the trnnsnctinu as related in the commiinication refcrred to, provcs npon judicial examinatinn, nn supported by evidence.

Respcclfullv Ynurc, O. IIUTCHINSON Chester, Oct. 19, 1844. It wiil thushe seen, thnt so far as Col Nutt was concerned, the bloody Iragedy turns out to be a cutanenuj cruplion ol thebrain ol some nvcr zealous friend of the 'down-trodden slave.' Wc have no objcction to people manifeating u li.it they may consider laudnbh zeal for 'the shve', but when their zeal gcts so far n hend of the truth ns it did in this cnse, nnd is mnnifestcd in unjust aspersinnsupnu the repulalion ofour worthiest citizens, il is time for sober-minded people to pansc nnd for the public press to see that jus tice is done.

We have a riuiior, I liopo fnlse lliai Mr Clingmnn ofN. C. and Mr Ynnccy of Alabamn, lefi ihe City in thc cars, t Ii is evening, for thc purpose of fight iug n diicl. Mr Clingmati is nnti-annexatinn, a stern Whig and ha, with Mr John White of Ky., always volcd with Mr Adams, against thc 251 h Rule. Mt Ynncey, in his speech thc olhcr day, which nppcared in thc Globc aud elsewlicre, noliced Mr Clingman in tho following manner: "Wiih t Ii is eslimate of him hcforehand, even Mr Y. himself was nsionished when' that gpuilrinan got up to taunt his broth prs ofthe South becausc their strenuous clToris, nnd earnest and continued excr lion had not bcen ahlc to prevcnt tho repeal of that rule of this IIouso" which hc atlributed tohis conduct on that subjecl, were such as could have been' found only in llie heart of him who, after belraying those who had trusted him, nnd' going over to tho rnnks of thc enemy, uirued nnd flouled thc colors ofthe cncmy in the facc of his own friends, Mr Y. knew that such had becn the estimalc en tprtaiiipd by niiieleen-lwcntieths uf tho tnpii ofthe South This was the offence, nnd it seems to me lo heof n pnliticnl rathcrlhau a peron al bearing. It hll applics to thc views ta ken of Mr Clingmau's public course. It seems, according lo rumor, wliich is perhaps uulriie, thal Mr Ynncey declmed any explanalion of the words, nnd jent' the nffensive parngraphs lo Mr Clingman. wc know nothing as to what passed nftcr wnrds, except that the parties have lcft thc cily. Washington, Jan. 10.. Thc Ihel. I nm snrry to be obliged fully to con' firm Ihe nccount I gave you last nipht of the danger ofaduel between'Mr Cling man and Mr Yancey. The parlies left here last evening bv tho cars for Baltimore. Mr Ynncey did not go to Baltimore, but ttiipped this side of it. Mr Clingtnan went to Baltimore lo receivc the services ofMr Carr, ns sccond. Mr Xiincey was accoinpanicd by Mr Huger, ol'S. C, son ofthe Spnaior. The Seuaie did not sit to day. Iii the Hrnise, Mr Ilalu, ol'N. II., (.ircr- cd a prnpotition for n division of Ttxas in to two enunl parts one portion to be laveholding nnd ihe other non-slavehold- ing. Snturday, Jan. 1 1. The Hnnse went into Coinniittpp of the Wlinle aud took uit tlic prnposition for an-' nexing Trxas to, tlie Uuiled Siait s. I'he Senaie did not sit to-day. Washington, Mondaj, Jan. 13. Anncxation Projcct. Mr Foster, of Tcniipssei', iutroduccd joint resolutions, authorizing tiie Anncxa tion ol J exas to tlie Umon on ccriuui terms Thc resolutions were read and refcrred. They reqnire Trxas to erect herself into a btatc, as which shc is to be ndmitted, without any nssiimptinn by us of her debts. Mr Bates and Mr Choate prcsenled re- mouslrnnces against llie Aunexntion of Texas; and Mr Allen meuiorials of citizens of Ohio in favor of the inlrodiiclion of I'exas and Oregon into thc Union. I find the opinion gaining ground here ihat some bill for thc Annexation of Texas will pass thc Hnnse at thc present session: I he proposition ouered, m thc Uouse nnd Senate, by Teiincssee Whigs, may, it is ihought, succeed. The Senate was not long in session to- day. 'They spent a short time in Execu- tive Session. Wc were npprized, this mnrning, that Mr Yancey had returned lo thc cily by the early tram of cars and that he and Mr Clingman went ont this morning about h.ilf past seven o'clock. It is not known uhelhrr they went lo Bladcnsburg or other places. They seem to have kept their cotinsels well. I! was gennernlly believed in the Hnuse, thnt they would fight at three o'clock to- day. It was almost too heautiful n day to bc moved by blood. P. S I learn that llie Duel took placc in Ihe vicinity of Beltsville; that Mr Cling man on the first fire, had his feet dirled' by his advcrsary's ball;' and that Mi Ynn cey narrowly escaped a ball in his hcad. The seconds then intcrferred, and thc matler was rcconciled. Both partirs have rcturnpd, in good' huinor and perfeclly souud, to this city. Tucfday, Jan. 14. The Annexation qucMion continurs to engross univcrsal altention. The cau.ce gains ground. Those who, a wcek ago, w ere despairing, are now confident. The Whigs are coming right. Tberenrc froni' uine to (ourlecii Whigs. in the Uouse. now ready lo support Mr Milton Brown's prop- os:lion. Other W lngs arc indiflerent loil. Wc cannot, with any ccrininty, relv on the pnssage of any Annexation projcct in ihe House, though every thing looks well for it. 12 COP1ES TO CLUBS FOR $20 TIIE COLUMBIAN MJIGJIZINE, FOIt 1845. r. n i t e d n y JOIHV 1NMAN AND ROnEnT A.
