51 i 10 umiJcr at our - i.' ltin with that result. We
su.i 1 unaffes tedl thereby. The deliberate aetiou of the
De.-KX-r-Uie member- reduced the iwue to Pennington,
itti old iienrv t'i.11 Whig, and McL'lernaud, a modem
hqtutter-sovereignty L>enioerat. The recreancy of North
a« eru Democrat- defeated the election ot' Smith, and
:he pliancy of Southern Democrats led to the substitution
of a Douglas.te. Between Pennington, with whom
we hold, perhaps, all political opiuious in common,
exceat upou certain abstract and obsolete question* ol
lavtrj, and McClernand, with whom we are not con
-cions of a aolitair concurrent political opinion or seuti
•neat, we had not the -lightest hesitancy of choice. V\ e
,re Hilling to admit, without positively knowing the
tact, that Mr. Pennington believes in the constitution
ality of the Wilmot Proviso, and is oppo-e l to the exteu
5,on of slavery; but we have far more respect for such
Views than for the bastard product of both that is know:,
as Squatter Sovereignty. If the attempt to assume and
exercise the power of forbidding the exten-ioa of-laven
is to 6*- made by any tribuuaL we much prefer that ii
» tall ho made by a body representing the aggregat.
. rvereigntv of the people, acting iu the face of lue whole
ra ior, and re-ponsible to the country at Urge, to th«
true bein'; made by an irreaponsible, inconi(*tent, un
a ihori/ed, so- ailed legislature, representing marauding
h .rd.s of piratical a'- J incendiary adveuturers of the
Joan B own stamp. We look upou the doetriue ot
F , latter .Sovereignty as the most despicable dodge ot

mm pu-Ulanimous evasion of responsibility, that ever
th;. at le-rigging statecraft iuvei-ted or political poltrooii
erv t >ok shelter uuJer. The establishment of the social
and domestic institutions ol a people is an act of -ove
r,.j •. ty, and can, ofcour-e, be exercised only by a sove
•X- z I power. A territory is in no sense a sovereignly.
T ic a itl.urity ow r it rests, as a trust, temporarily iu the
be do of Congre <; but Congress, a- a faithful fiduciary
© ill the Suites, cannot equi ably or rightfully exercise
that authority to the prejudice of any of the States, all ol
which have rights aud interests iu the trust subject. But
Congress ca„, aI1J ought to. extend equal protection and
t ivor to the interests ol all the States, un it the proper
t.me ha* arrived for abdicating tU trust and transferring
ila power to the p-opie organized into a State govern
uient. Tins is our doctriue. Mr. Pennington, we pre
aume, hold- that Congress, durtug its tru-tee-hip, may
exercise the power of ordaitnug the iu-titutious of a ter
ritory Mr. McClernand holds that the squatters in tin
territory. Abolition enitnisaries, roving adventurers, un
naturalized immigrants, aud predatory and strolling
bands of any character, may u-urp the trust of Congre*.-,
deft the power of the government, trample on the right
©f the 3la es, and decide of themselves, and for all pos
leritv, wh-it arc to be the organic laws aud the douiestic
iastitution* of the future Sute. Looking to the questiou
of-l ivery only, then, we prefer the doctriue of the Spea
ker eh ■ t to that of his defeated competitor. Looking
to other questions, we do not compare the men at all.—
So we expect to adhere to the position we have takeu
ou the sui.ject—the lamentations of the Kxamintr to the
contrary notwithstanding.
We close by submitting to our neighbor's attention the
following from that leading Western organ of Democra

The Charleston Mfrriir;/, appimntlv despairing of the
■vmth Carolina mission to this State, «avs, rathe? ungra
ciously, considering that the subject is -till pending:
“ We do not know whether \ trgiuia will regard the j
invitation of South Carolina; but this. effort on the part
of South Carolina will prove one thing, viz : where he
the real resource* of the South for action and protection.
Our reader* a-e fully aware, that although willing to give
even opportunity, we have never had nmoh faith iu the
Frontier States co-operating to bring redress or safety to
the South. Whenever the South is delivered from her
l*re-ent condition of inferiority and perd, we believe it
.nil fie by the resolute action of one or a lew States—
and these States will lie Cotton States, where the institu
tion of African Slavery is a question of existence.
The admis-ion of a lack of faith in “the f rontier States ‘
s an illustration of the truth so forcibly presented in
the able letter of Mr. Rives, that there could not be no
lasting harmony or peace in the Southern confederacy,
if one were formed. The Cotton States would soon
come to regard the Frontier States, as “unsound, and
i’ would not take long for suspicions, tauuts and recrimi
nuin - to produce a sectional controversy among our*
selves. The truth is, the Frontier States must learn that
tt,ev have a pc. ..liar interest in this mutter, aud must re
size the necessity of acting for themselves.

We copy the following which appeared in the Exami- ,
tur of last week, and with pleasure endorse what the Ex
- Hintr says:
■We learn bv a circular recently received from Messrs.
I.udlaui A Ueinekcu, of New York,that they have secured
the vaiuitdesi r vices of Mr Geo. W. Paknore, lateofCutu
.•■i laud county,in their tobacco business. As Mr. Patmore
s personally well known to us. we take great pleasure in
o nmeuding him to the manufacturers ot tobacco in \ ir
■ da a-ad North Carolina, as a voung gcntlemau of tin •
-< qualifications, capacity and in egriiv. Mr. Pal
i r • - lov iltv, a* weil as that of the geutlciuen with
4mm he i- associated, to the institutions of the South,
auuol lie called in question, a consideration which, at
his time, the numerous friends of Mr. Palmore, will, we
ire jure, duly appreciate."
■ iivetllgatlunt Proposed.
The various exigencies ot the public busiuess have led,
,'roin time to time, to the appointment in Congress of
a!.at are called ' Standing Committees." Occurrences of
ate years have developed the necessity of at least one
ddiiiou to the list of these committees, we mean a Com
mittee ou Corruption. And in order to keep up w ith
he accumulating mass of business demanding their at
eutiou, we imagine it will be necessary to give them au
thority to appoint any number of sub-committees, to be
ureelled out under the separate Commandments of the
Decalogue, or the various heads of the Criminal Code.—
fue Committee ou Stealing would probably have to sit
■ n ptrutantnet. This corruption business is already
• rowdiug on Congrv-s. T.e New York Times has the
lollowiug paragraphs ou the subject:
• The first Committee will be to investigate the Prc*i
.cut's actiou ou the Chicago and other post-offices, in
waicb the books of the Department will have to be pro
I iced, wil l the various reports of special agents to the
Postmaster lietieral, aud the reports ot this officer to the
President. This, it s said, will be a schedule of iniquity
1 malfeasance passing all belief—the President himself
-landing directly uud deeply implicated.
Tue second Committee will have for jt* object to iu
ves igate the contract lor printing postollice blank*, the
oulract lor Executive binding and all other contracts
which have been made under the direct dictation and
urection ol the President. Cornelius Wendell will be
.at ou the stand as the first witness, and the investiga
;o:;s will rapidly ramify over Phil-.delphia, New Yoik,
'onuecticut, Utah and elsewhere.
The third Comiuittec decided upon—Mr. Sherinau hav
ing propo-ed a lourth, uo-v under consideration—will be
0 examine and report in full upon the agencies used to
carry Lecouiptou, the notes discounted, the amounts |
*p«ut, the items iu the various deficiency bills, and the [
-e of patronage, or rather the misuse, to carry out that
scheme. This is to be.the grand Committee; aud will >
Iuil on it the best talent iu the 11 -public m and South
American parties, with John B. H i-niu to represent the j
bolting Democrats.
This will prove a thunder stroke at the White House
— Buchanan has rather chuckled of lale at the prospect
tii at his Cabinet would be put upon the rack—for he hates
, verv one of them , but the curses * men he sent out iu
the morning of hi- power are coining back to roost to
wards evening, ou the gilded tester of his own Stale

x satined, but it is confidently claimed by his friends
that t.e cun clear hiniseli.

—the Federal arm a a° interposed—the whole people dis*
avowed tlie set and reprobated it. He proceed*:
“ Were the Southern States to vivid to the suggestions
of South Carolina, aud passing over the intermediate
stages of trouble, a Southern Confederacy should be
estatdished, could South Carolina otter any guaranty for
its duration * If she were to secede from the present
Union, could one be tormed with a constitution of more
obligatory force than the one which has been formed by
our lathers, in which the patriots and sages of South j
Caroliua bore a conspicuous part * Sever the present
Uuion—tear into fragments the Constitution—stay the j
progress of the free institutions which both have sustain
ed, aud what atonement is to be offered to liberty fortbe I
act v From whence is to come the elements ot “a more I
perfect Uuiou” thau the oue trained by the men of the
revolution? Where is the patriotism, the equality, the
republicanism, to frame a better constitution? That
which South Caroliua became a |>arty to in 1788 has to
this period proved equal to all the demands made upon
it by the wants of a great people anil the expansive en
ergies of a progressive age. Neither in peace nor in war
has it ever bet^j found inadequate to any emergency. It
has, in return, extended the protection which union aloue j
can give. The States have received the benetil of ibis <
Union. Is it left to them to abandon it at their pleasure j
—to desert the Union which has cherished them, aud j
without which they would have been exposed to all the |
misfortunes incident to their weak condition?
“Texas cannot be in doubt as to this question. In en
tering the Union, it is not difficult to determine what was !
surrendered bv au independent Republic. We surrpn- ]
deredthe very power, the want of which originated the |
Federal Uuion—the right to regulate commerce with for- !
eign nations, As au evidence of it we transferred our
custom houses, as we did our forts and arsenals, along
with the power to declare war. We surrendered our na
tional tiag In becomiug a State of the Union, Texas
agreed “not to enter into auy tr atv, alliance or conted- i
eratiou, aud not without the consent of Cotigre-s to keep |
troops or ships of war, enter into any agreement or i
compact with any other State or foreigu power.*’ All t
these rights belonged to Texas as a nation. She ceased j
to possess them as a State; uor did Texxs, in terms or i
by implication, reserve the power or stipulate lor the ex
ercise of the right to secede from these obligations, w ith
out the consent of the other parties, to the agreement,
acting through their common agent, the Federal govern- ,
incut. The Constitution of the United States does not |
thus provide for its own destruction. An inherant rev- J
olutionarv right,to be exercised when the great purposes 1
of the Uuiou have failed, remain ; but nothing el-e.
“Might not South Carolina,“if a new confederacy were ,
formed, at any time allege that an infraction of the new J
cou-iitutiou, or some deviation fiom its principles had
taken place' lu such au ar-ot, according to the priu
ciples now laid dowu by her, she would then exercise the j
same power which she now assumes. Grant her assump- |
tiou of the right of secession, and it must be adopted as j
a general principle. Massachusetts may then nullify the
1 igitive Slave law by virtue of her right as a sovereign j
S ate, and when asked to obey the constitution, which |
she would thus violate, quietly go out of the Union. It
uas been remarked by a statesman ot South Carolina,
when commenting upon the alleged aggressions ol the
North u|Hm the South, that “many of the evils of which
we complain w ere of our own making."
“It wc have suffered from our own bad policy in the
Union—from giving the control of our affairs to men
who have not calculated well as to the results, (the L uion
has enabled us to retrieve many of these false steps.)
and at no time since the hiitory of our government,
have so many ot the safeguards of law been thrown j
around our peculiar iiistiitition. It is for us to sustain it j
aud every other right we possess in the Uuion. Sits
lilliou UV tue ffuenu arm
relv upon the maintenance of these rights which we kuow
we possess. Whenever these are taken Iroui us, the
Constiiutiou h*»s lost its power. Tuere will be no Un
ion to secede from, for iu the death of the Constitution ■
the Union likewise perishes ; and then comes civil war,
and the struggle for the uppermost. j
"If the present Union, from which we are asked to ,
secede, does not possess in itself all the conservative ele- ,
incuts for its maintenance, it does seem to me that all :
political wisdom and binding force must be set at nought
bv the iniasures proposed. |
" .So long as a stogie State reserves to herself the rto»
of judging for the entire South as to the wrongs inflict
ed, aud the mode of redress, it is dirti suit to determine j
to what extent the theory would he carried.

can bear no longer they cau judge for themselves, and
should their remonstrances fuil to call the enemies of

ineut cease to protect them, the pathway of revolution is
open to them."
Governor Houston then cites from the farewell address
of Washington, from the writings of Thomas JcfFcr-oti
in 17$S>, and at the period of the Hartford Convention,
twenty vears later, important passages against secession.
After doing this the Governor says:
“The [articular attitude of Massachusetts, at that pr
riod, called forth these determined expressions from this
great champion of American freedom. They are equal
ly applicable to our present condition. The Legislature
of South Carolina may have as much mistaken the char
acter of the masses of South Carolina, as diiLthe Hurt
■ord Convention tin* character of the ma.-s-s of Massa
chusetts. The Hartford Convention became a by-word
and a reproach. The sons of the men of Lexington and
Hunker Hill stamped it with iufainy. The people ot South
Carolina are descendants of those who felt all the throes
iuciJetit to the revolution. Her gallauf heroes are among
the heroic names to be revered and cherished. I heir
generations will not forget the cost of liberty, or the
blessings of the Uniou which it created.”
He then quotes from James M idison appropriate ad
monitions: ul-o from Andrew Jackson, Henry Clay, and
Daniel Webster. He thus concludes :
"With such teachings and such lights from those of
the pist and of modi-ru times, can Texas forgethor duty
to herself * These were the men who torined the first
structure of perfect liberty and - •If-government in the
world. We have the exposition of the principles upon
which this suhhuic structure of self-government was
based. Are wo to cast them all away? Are we to quit
our haven of safety, iu which we arc secure, happy and
prosperous, and risk 0’ir all upon the uncertainty of an
untried experiment, which seems only to open the door
to revolution and auarchv v CoulJ we for a moment en
tertain such a maddened thought, we need only extend
our imaginations across the Kio • Jrande and there,exempli
ticl to a small extent, behold the effects of secession ami
disunion. A disregard for a constitutional government
has involved Mexico in all the horrors of civil war, with
robbery, murder, ranine unrestrained. There it is simply
civil w ar, brother armed atriiust brother, partisan against
put lizan; but to us it would be all these, added to the
combined efforts of the powers of tyranny to crush out
liberty. A responsibility rests upou us. because our ad
vantages, ari-ing from self-government and a more per
fect fieedom than they ever enjoyed, renders us the mote
accountable.
“I need not call the attention of the legislature to a
period so recent a-- the annexation ol Texas, to the
American Union. The feeling that prevailed to the coin
sin* for its consummation in almost every heart in Tex
as, can testify of our people, when they took upon them
selves the duties of citizens of the United States. A
generation has uot half passed, «iuce the great object
was accomplished; and are we to be seduced already
iuto measures fraught with principles that would involve
ns in the inconsistency ol impairing the integrity ol our
former action, and that too, when it would involve us.
iu mv humble opinion, in the crime ol raising our hand
against the Constitution and the Uuion, which have slid
ti-red aud defended us, and which we are solemnly bound
to support and m«intain.
“The good sense of the nation cannot overlook the
fact that we are one people and one kindred; that our
productions, occupations, and interests are not more di- j
versified in one section of the Union th in another. If
the vatu hope of a Southern Confederacy would be re
ul zed upon the basis ol all the slave States, there would
soon be found enough diversity ol Northern interests, in
both sections, to accomplish another division, all the
more cagcrlv sought, because ol a recent precedent.
“indeed,ii'peaceable separation were possible,no Con
fedeiucy could be formed upon hiiv o'her piinciple than
that of leaving domestic institutions where the Constitu
tion of the United States now leaves them—to the States
individually, and not to a central government.
“1 have been no indifferent spectator of the ngitations
which have distracted our councils and caused many pa
triots to desp air of the Republic. But 1 am yet hopeful,aud
have an abiding confidence in the masses of the people.
1 cannot believe that they will suffer scheming, designing
aud misguided politicians to endanger tile palladium ol
our liberties. The world is interested in the experiment
of this government. There is no new continent ou the
earth whereon to rear such another fabric. It is impos
sible that ours can be "broken, without becoming frag
mentary, chaotic, and auarchial. I know of no confed
eracy with other States, which could hold out greater in
ducements or stronger bouds of fraternity than were
extended to us in l s-14. The people of Texas are satisfi
ed with the Constitution and Union as they are. They
are even willing to enlarge it by fcrtlur wise, peaceful,
aud honorable acquisitions. If there is a morbid aud
dangerous -eutiuicut abroad in the land, let us endeavor
to allay it, by teaching and cultivating a more fraternal
feeling.
“I would therefore recommend the ndoptiou of resolu
tions «!i-seating from the assertion of the abstract right
of secession, and refusing to send deputies, for any pres
ent existing cause, aud urging upon ti;e people of all the
St ites. North and South, the necessity of cultivating
brotherly feeliug, observing justice and attendiug to their
own affairs."
GILBERT HUNT:
lo the Editor of the Whig:
It may not be amiss, to call the attention of the mem
bers of the Legislature to the petition of Gilbert Hunt,
which was presented at the last session of the General
Assembly. That petition was very numerously signed,

RICHMOND AND DANVTLLK RAtl.ROAD.
House hill authorizing a subscription ou the part of the
State to the extension of the Richmond and Danville
Roll oud was read twice, aud on motion of Mr. Thomas,
of Henry, was read a third time.
Mr. CLAIBORNE moved that the vote by which the
bill was ordered to its third reading be reconsidered with
the view of offering a ryder.
The motion to reconsider was lost—ayos 12; noes 25.
The hi 1 then passed—ayes 29; noes 13.
When Mr. STUART’S name was called, he arose and
said in effect that he desired to say a word in explana
tion of the vote he proposed to give. He concurred en
tirely in the views so clearly and forcibly stated by the
Senator from Jefl'eison in opposition to the policy of con
structing a railroad, and afterwards Authorizing and aid
iug in the construction of a rival work to destroy the val
ue of the first. If, therefore, the effect of this bill were
to authorize the Richmond and Danville road to tap the
Va. and Tennessee road in the southwest part of fhe State,
he would be opposed to it. But, as the amount appro
priated would not have that effect, because it would not
extend the Danville road within 100 miles of the Tennes
see road, but would afford great facilities to the people of
Patrick and Henry, he would cheerfully vote for it, but
»ith thp distinct understanding, that he was opposed to
ts extension beyond the western limits of Patrick county.
When Mr. WICKHAM'S name was called, he said that
he occupied the same position with the Senator from Au
gusta, in being opposed to uuv interference with existing
roads, and should certainly not vote tocarr) this road to
tho Virginia and Tennessee road. He differed from the
Senator from Jefferson in regarding this as a new work,
it was but a continuation of one of the leading lines ot
the State, the Richmond anJ Danville Railroad.

“Provided, That the State shall be hereafter entitled
to vote upon all of her stock in the said Company by the

THE FIRST AUDITOR.
Mr. DAY u&ked that the House bill to increase the
salary of the First Auditor he taken up.
Mr. DOUGLAS opposed the motion, and called for the
ates and noes, and, in doing so, he requested the re
porters to state that he did so because he tiad heard that
the Auditor had made a mistake of from half a million
to a million of dollars in his report, and he (Mr. Doug
las) was not prepared to vote for any increase of salary
until he had accurate information concerning what he
had heard. He did not, in the slightest degree, doubt
the integrity of the Auditor. He made no charge of
corruption against him, but he (.Mr. Douglas) wanted to
see it tht Auditor had made an error it) a simple sum
of addition, and it he had, he was not til to be Fir-t Au
ditor. He felt it due to bis constituents to have inform
tion on the matter.
Mr WICKHAM said he had promised to aid Mr. Day
in taking up the bill “tc-day,” and ho would keep bis
promise, hut he could not vole for the bill until inform
ation was hail.
Mr BRANNON said there was no such omis-ion as
that stated bv Mr. Douglas.

CHANGES AND IMPROVEMENTS IN BROADWAV.
Who is there that has been familiar with tliM world
renowned thoroughfare in rears past, and has takcu a
walk through it ot late tbit has not observed the very
striking change* which it ha* undergone. Not long since
it was almost exclusively occupied by retail dealer*.—
Now the whoUtale houses have come in and compelled
the former class to move further up town. At the peri
od to which we refer, there was scarcely a wholesale
house above Chamber* street. But times are altered and
at present we find them all '.he way up to Canal Street.—
The progressive strides of trade and commerce have com
pelled the retail stores, dwelling*, hotels, theatres, aud
eveu churches to succumb to their imperative require
ment*. In such a state of things, there is no end to the
“ pulling down" and “ building up” of mercantile edifices
on this great thoroughfare ; and in the midst of such al
terations aud reconstructions, it is no small gratification
to observe great architectural improvement iu the new
buildings which are being erected. Hence it has been
said, and said truly, that the “ Merchant Princes" of
Broadway transact their business in edifices of palatial
greatness and splendor.
Among the several improvements which have recently
taken place in Broadwa'y, none arc more conspicuous
and attractive than those which have taken place ou the
block between White a id Walker streets on the cast
side. During the past year the entire block, except one
building, has been razed to the ground, upon which have
been reared, as if by the wand of the enchanter, new and
splendid marble building*. Included iu these is the ware
house ot Messrs. James Wilde, Jr., A Co., wholesale
clothiers. It was the first one Imilt and occupied upon
the block. With the usual sagacity and forethought for
j which this firm have ever been distinguished, they secu
red a long lease of the ground, aud had the building erect
ed under their own supervision, aud according to the re
quirements of their present extensive and daily increas
i ing business. Having been completed, they euteredupon
its occupaucy on the 1st of January, 1869. The exp e
rience of one year alone has demonstrated the advauta
ges of a location on Broadway in preference to all oth
ers, not merely to themselves but to their customers at
largo. The establishment of Messrs. James Wilde, Jr, A
Co., being easy of access to and from the principal hotels,
and indeed from all parts of the city by the various om
nibus lines, many of their customers make it their head
quarters during their stay in the city.
The building is five storie* high and lias a spacious
basement and sub-baseinont. The first floor and base
ments have been rented by a large Dry Goods jobbing
house, whilst the upper part of the building has been re
served for the special purpose aud use of themselves.—
The front ol the building is of the purest white marble,
■ n columns, extending two stories in height, surmounted
bv beautifully wrought capitals,from which spring arches
which form the tops of the wiudows. The effect is sin
gularly beautiful, striking and unique. The wiudows are
very broad and of the clearest and finest plate glass.—
The" depth of the building is about 200 feet, and the fron
tage fully thirty. Perfect harmony prevail* between the
interior finish and the external architecture. The ware
rooms of Mean. James Wilde, Jr., A Co., are furnished
with chandeliers by the renowned firm of Haughwout A
Co. They are of bronze and gilt. The building is heat
ed with steam, thus doing away with the anuoyances and
inconveniences which appertain to the use of stoves.—
The bit-ines* in which Messrs. Wilde A Co. are engaged
lias become a most important ooe. Advantage has been
taken of the experience of past years, and it is no exag
geration to say that their business is conducted under
the best of regulation*, because good materials are used,
and competent w orkmen w ho turn out garments of every
description, remarkable for gracefulness and attraction.
Having examined every class of goods at present up
on inspection at the warerooms of Messrs. James Wilde,
Jr. A Co , we aie perfectly warranted in asserting that
they are unsurpassed for style and superior workman
fhip. Hence tho reputation of this house for getting up
superior goods, and the fame which their clothing has
attained for elegance aud durability, throughout the
Southern States of the Union. Few mercantile firms have
ever been as well organized, with respect to the capacity
of the partners for the different departments, as this
firm. Consequently their past success has been not only
what might bo expected, but legitimate in every respect.
With a thorough knowledge of fabricks, and an intimate
acquaintance with all branches of the art of designing gar
ments, which are the true embodiment of elegance and
grace, they combine thorough business habits ami exten
sive and lengthened experience. These tacts added to
their large financial resources place them in the foremost
rank of their trade. A single look through their ware
rooms, when their stock is complete, and their custo
mers arc crowding upon them, must satisfy any discrim
inating mind that there is the place for all persons en
gaged in the Clolhiug trade to lay iu their slocks, inas
much as the bourcen of selection are innumerable, the
quality of the goods first class, the fashions modern, the
designs uov< I aud tasty, aud the prices moderate.
It will not he out of place if we conclude these re
marks by observing that the goods of this house are par
ticularly adapted for the Southern aud Southwestern
trade. I'.irtLs at a distance may transmit their orders
through th>- po«t, should they fed it inconvenient to visit
Xew York iu person, and may rely upon having their
wauls supplied with promptitude and dispatch. Every
article will he selected for them with an earnest desire to
satisfy aud please, and upon the most liberal and advan
tageous terms. Such of our readers as may he engaged
in this particular branch of business, before making
their purchases, would do well to call at the warerooms
of Messrs. Wilde A Co., aud judge for themselves.—X.

Katal Rencontre in Memphis.—On Satarday evening
a fatal rencontre took place at Memphis, Tenn , between
Mr. .lames I.. Webb, a prominent cotton factor and mer
chant of that city' and Mr. Thomas B Mynatt, late depu
ty sheriff of the county, which resulted in the instant
death of the former, from a pistol shot fired by the lat
ter. The two gentlemen met in the street, when an an
gry conversation ensued, apparently in regard to some
business transactions, when Mr. Webb was heard em
phatically to deny the truth of an assertion made by Mr.
Mynatt. The assertion was repeated, and deuied in eveu
more emphatic terms than before, whereupon Mr. M.
struck Mr. W. a blow in the face with his tist. Mr. Webb
then staggered backward a few paces, endeavoring the
while to shield himself from any further blows, when My*
uatt drew a pistol, and, on being called it “coward" by
Webb, tired. The contents of the weapon took effect in
the right side of Mr. Webb’s face, immediately behind
the cheek bone, and near the articulation ol the jaws,
j and passing through, lodged in the base of the brain,
posteriorly. Mr. Webb fell to the pavement without ut
tering a word, and immediately expired ; while Mr. My
* natt gave himself into the hands of the police, and w ct
committed to jail. Both gentlemen are old citizens of
Memphis, and have stood high iu the community.
[The victim of this sad tragedy was the nephew of Mr.
I Lewis Webb, of this city.— M'hiy.]
