in that county. The organization of this
force was for the purpose of guarding the fron

ries who were lying out in the Blue Ridge,
making incursions irom time to time upon the
lives and pi perty of patriots living in the
sorronndim country. The forces, after cross
ing New ri\er at Barnard's Ferry to Flower

c of a man named Fletcher.
James Howard commenced his service in

telligence was received of the efforts
making by (Ten. Clark, in command of the
forces South of them, to form v junction with
those from Virginia. Alter punishing the In
dians, by destroying the villages of Temolely
and Big Island, and concluding a treaty with
them, the force:, divided, and Howard was
stationed at Blaekamore Fort, on Clench river,
during the remainder of his term ot service.
In 3 one, IT7~, he enlisted for three yars in an
expedition against the Indians in Kentucky,
and to the Wabash river, (dividing Illinois
from Indiana,) under Col. John Montgomery.
The forces rendezvoused at Long Islands, and
in boats descended the river to Tennessee river,
and thence op to the Mississippi, passing thy
month of theOhio,to an old town settled by
the French, three miles up the Kaskaskia ri\er,
in the western part of southern Illinois.—
Here the assembled forces, under the command
of Colonel ( at terwards General) George R< gera
Clark,were marched toVlncennes, and men
bach to Illinois river, and remained there un
til 177(1, when Howard, with others, was trans
ferred to a little fort at the Yellow Banks, on
the Mississippi river, some four miles below
the mouth of the Ohio. Remaining there un
til Angus', of that year, he was then sen: up
the Ohio to the '-Falls," now called Louisville,
where Gen. (.'lark had gone with most ot the
army—the Indians having been,a.-, was thought,
completely subdued by him. In 1780 the set
tlers at the "Falls," being much harassed by
Indians, he wns detailed for duty at trial place.
Soon after, the Indians captured Martin and
Kiddle's station. During the summer of 1789
General Clark was recalled to Miami to chas
tise the Indians in that region of the country,
who were very troublesome by committing
various depredations upon the settlements,
and fought a battle n Peccoways plain, not
far from the spot where, in 177t», the Indians
had compelled a detachment of Keatockians
to retreat. After the defeat of the Indians they
remained comparatively iiuiet During these
se\eral campaigns, the men composing the
expedition having to march through a new and
but scattered settled country, to cross rivers,
peuetra'e s wain pst and camp in the wilderue-s,
were exposed to great hardships and priva
tions from the inclemency of the seasons and
the want of regular supplies of provisions,

skirmishing, protect themselves and the in
habitants lrom the subtle attacks of the In

emissaries of the British Government. How

years. Since the Itevoluiion he resided some

Perry county.
John Keeton was born in and draughted
from Spotsylvania county, Va., in June, 1780,
and sent under the command of Colonel Stub

force General Gates in the South. At Hills
boro', N. C, their captain havinc been dismiss
ed, Lieut. Holliday was elected to till his
place. In August they joined General Gates
at Kugebj's (or ltusseil's) Mills, near Camen,
in the night, after a forced march of eighiet n
days and nights. As they marched into camp
the picket guard of the opposing armies were
firing at each other, and was the prelude to
ihe regular battle which commenced with the
daws of day, when General Gates was de
feated by Lord Corn wallis. Captain Holliday
wa* severely wounded, and was seen by Kee
ton in their retreat, but so closely followed by
their enemies no assistance could be rendered
to him. He must either have died from his
wounds or have been helplessly slaughtered
by the British, as be was not heard from after
wards. In another tour of service he was at the
siege and surrender of Yorktown in 17-1, which
practically ended the hostilities between the

Letter from Richard Renlfts the President.
ArsTiN, Texas, Dec. 1, 1859.
7'e W«j Excellent}, the President of tkt Unit 7
States : —
Sin: Having recently observed, from the pa
pers which have reached thia distant region,
that the discovery of the correspondence oi
John Brown has disclosed my former connec
tion with him as Secretary ol State, under the
"Provisional Constitution," adopted at Chat
ham, O. W., May loth, 1858, 1 have thought it
my duty to state to yoa thai while I have had
no connection either with Bi own oranyol his
party since the beginning of June, IKB, ami no
knowledge of the resuscitation ol the organ!-
Si which died out at the period of, and in
quence of my defection therefrom, and
ugh I have, since my return from Europe
pril la-t, resided wholly in Southern
I States, acquitting myself as a law-abiding
I citizen. 1 yet am perfectly willing (by reason
of my conviction that the organization and the
insurrection were alike cruelly wcked,) to
surrender myself either to the authorities of
the United States or of the state oi Virginia,
in order, if it fa? necessary, to suffer the penal
ty ol my egregious folly.
1 have, since the date of the insurrection,
been mice or twice dissuaded from offering
myself as a witness, oa the ground that the
violated majesty of the law was being amply
and fully \ indicated.
Hy reason, however, of the recently disclosed
fact that the insurrection occurred aader th>
auspicesof the "Provisional Constitution," 1
have determined, on account of the possibility
that my connection with the dissolved organi
sation ol May, l-"'-. may entail responsibilities
on me in December, t?59, to express my wil
lingness to expiate, to the last degree, the con
sequences of my atrocious blunder. For'bis
reason: that, whereas, when an Abolitionist,
I would have diea in defence of my convic
tions, so now, that 1 am a Southerner, lam
also willing to die in proof of the sincerity ol
ray present principles. If. therefore, the error
of the pastinvolves mem present punishment,
I am content to redeem such error by suffer
ing such punishment.
I reside in this city, from which 1 shall not
absent myself until you have communicated
your desires or decision in this matter.
I have the honor to remain, sir,
Your Excellency's most obi serv't,
Richard Keai.k.

Kkpoi.t or Nobthkbji Spies from tiii:
Soith.—The rsew York correspondent of the
Mobile Register, says:
The Republican leaders here sent confiden
tial agents in September to every Southern
State, to examine into and report the extent of
arms and ammunition in the South that could
be nsi-d in .March. 1861, should Seward's taking
his seat be opposed. A Copy of the leport was
sent by nfliend in the- Sice of the Independent.
1 will merely mention what it contains in
reference to Alabama, South Carolina and
Georgia. The spies report thai the arms and
ammunition IB Alabama is of no possible ac
count. Of South Carolina he speaks in the
most contemptuous terms, and contrasts the
arms and supplies of the Federal Government
and fortress with those of the State at Colum
bia and at Charleston. He says there are not
even rusty ransketa in the State sufficient to
arm 100 men, and if there were, that the mus
kets would explode and kill the holders. In
Georgia, the spy says, there is a scarcity oi
arm-, ant! of powder and *-hot ior the ordinary
hunting done in the State. All the States ate
repored, and if the report be true, were I in
your Legislature, not a day should before
v remedy was bad. 1 would create a perma
nent supply, by legalizing manufactures of
arms and of powder. Why not .'

Wishing a happy new year to ail, and then pro

close of the year 1859.
In the Mayor's Court yesterday morning: I
Win. Hendricks, charged with the murder of I
Thomas Johnston, passed examination and
was sent on to the Hustings Court, which com
mences Monday. The evidence elicited was
substantially the same as given the preceding
morning before the coroner's jury, with little
variation, it is believed to be a clear case of
murder in the first decree. No interesting
particulars developed. The trial of the case
seemed to create considerable interest, tin-
Mayor's office being packed with persons who,
no 'oubt, attended through curiosity. The
prisoner did not seem to ha\e a friend, but
exhibited the same cool indifference of v. huh
he seemed posses-ed from the first.
A young man front Mississippi, a student at
Emory and Henry College, attempted to get on
the cars on the Virginia and Tennessee Rail

that it is supposed 'hat he will die. Name not
ascertained. No blame attached to the em

better half failing to appear to testify against
him. he was discharged.—James Cavenaugh,
forsaking free lodgings in the station -bouse,
was next called no. Jim had his eyes decora
ted in mourning—caused, probably, by coming
in contact with some one's fist, and seemed to
be very much under the weather. He stated
that he was on bis way to the eUanohe Valley
