As thu poor Indians wore without 0
provisions hr tho whiter, over one hundred n
of them obtained leave from their eiiptora e
to return to (inudenhutten and there g
gather thu corn which they luid raised
(hul year to bring back to Detroit and c
relieve the sullermgs of their famish- p
iuj? brethren. At tho time these b
Christian Indians started for Unndenhut- j,
ten on their humane mission a party of,
wvnues were sent by the Uritish to imtr-' a
der and plunder the white settlers along o
the Ohio and Tuscuruwiis Valley in order to
thereby arouse the frontiersmen and in*
dace tlierri to wmik their vengeance on the
innocent Christian Indians at Gundenhut- P
ten. In February, 1782, a band of these suv- ij
ages,amoni;otherdepredutioui?, murdered in G
coldWood the family of William Wallace
in Pennsylvania, and Hud toward the Mo*
Mviantouns on the Tuscarawas. When w
near the Olrio river they hum: the mutilated ^
and naked bodies of Mrs. Wallace and one n
child on trees near the trail which they
knew the partv of whites pursuiui: them

I tt Unailenlmtlen they found the Moravians
gathering their corn and at once told them tl
of what they hud ju.it committed. The j
Christian Indians became alarmed aud
entreated the savages to leave their L
town as they did not wish to protect c
munierers, and thereby call dowu the
vengeance of the whites. Before leaving
the town the savages traded the dress
of Mrs. Wallace to a young and thought- "
lesjJforavian girl for provision. Kirly in, h
March Colonel David Williamson, in com- tl
roantl of about ninety settlers, started from g
Mingo Bottoms, near where Steubenville
non* stands, and inarched toward Gnaden- "
hutten fur the purpose of wreaking vengeance
on the Moravians, whom tliey sus* tl
1 pecteii were guilty of the recent depreda
I lions on tin; whites. On the Oth of March
Captain Williamson's command encamped ri
I one mile from (inudenhutten. Tho Mora- b
viuns hud fixed March 7 as the day for
starting to curry the corn they hud gathered
to tlicir brethren at Detroit. In the morning
it detachment of Williamson's men
met a young half-breed Moravian named tl
Sliebosli; us they were nearing the town, e
and mui tiered him in cold blood. Two .
other ileiachments were sent to Shoenbrunn
and Salem, and the Moravians at 11
that place were induced to give up their tl
arms by the professions of friendship
shown them by tho whites, and all were
brought to Gnadenhuttett where, after they
were disarmed, they were contined in a a
large building used as a general shop by t:
the Moravians. Colonel Williamson then j
f drew his men up in line and had a vote as
to whether the Mom viuns should bo taken
captive to Fort l'itt or bo butchercd. Only 1
' eighteen men in tho whole command of 1
about one hundred voted to spare their g
lives, and the decision was murder. Again
anil !.?
?1 their innocence of the crimes charged J
against tliein, but the finding of Mrs. \Val? t
lace's dress in their possession was consid- t
ered abundant evidence of their guilt, and .
thered-handed murderers in Colonel Williamson's
party cried for their blood. The I
Indians were "taken two by two from the i
buttilim* mul led to the door of another t
and, jvs they were about to enter tho
doorway, a .soldier concealed inside dealt c
the jwor victim a blow with a heavy mallet,
crushing his skull, and scattering his <
bruins across the floor. In this cruel man- (
ner these Christian Moravian Indians were
put to death, and innocent women, ehil- *
dren, and infants at the breast fell victims i
to the bloodiest of massacres in the aunals (
of the whole countrv. After theso barbar- |
inns had butchered in cold blood ninetyfour
helpless victims, they piled them in '
heaps and set them on lire, and for inanv '

0 tangible existence of which the Government
could take cognizance. Tho late
ecretary will himself appear before the
ommitteo again to-morrow, and that will
roffably end the investigation. It has

It is again the subject of rumor nnd comlent
that President Arthur has, iu several
f his recent appointments, disregarded or
jnored the recommendations of General
Irant, the inference being that ho is not so
luch interested in accommodating the

ay for hi3 own future preferment. It is
ot likely, however, that any differences of
very serious character have ariseu be,veen
An interesting contest is impending over

Senator Log m fell so much in love with
ic Hot Springs of Arkansas, on the occaion
of his recent visit there, that lie has
ecommended the establishment of a miliiry

The House committee on naval affairs

Idlkins' scheme (or spending a hundred

The dead-lock in the House remains
nbroken, but the Republicans are gradully
working their way to a quorum. There
s apparently 110 let up on the part of the
Jemocrats, however, of their inteution to
ontinuo the fight by every available pro:ess
of obstructive legislation. Judge
Dibble is a mild-mannered gentleman, but
leems to haveau abundance of grit in him.
Judge Fulkcrson, the Eeadjuster Congressman
from Virginia, who is acting with
he Democrats in the South Carolina el colon
case, states that ho is simply guided in
he matter by his ideas of justice, inde>endent
of all political considerations, yet
n fuy accordance with what he conceives
o bo the principles of the party which
sleeted him.
All of tho Star Route defendants appearid
in court to-day and gave bail, excepting
3en. Brady, who performed that duty two
iays ago, and II. 31. Vail, whose counsel
said he would have him on hand three
lays hence. It is now expected, that when
^he court meets again on Friday, a trial
lay will at last be agreed upon, something
ivjiich uiu [juuuc nas long oeen promised,
but frequently disappointed in.

The witness had no personal knowledge of
any connection of any Minister Plenipotentiary
of the United States with the affairs
of the Peruvian company, and knew nothing
except what liu had seen in the prints
of tho contract between Morton, Bliss Co.
and the Credit Industriel. Witness arranged
an interview between Count do
Montferrand, the representative of the
Credit Industriel, and Secretary Blaine, at
which witness was present. The count
unfolded tho plans of his company,
which embraced protectorate by the

The witness never saw tho missing papers.

Washington, May 23.?It is expected
that the internal revenue bill will be called
up in the House within the next ten days.
The bill will provido a. reduction of taxes,
in the asriirenate, of ?24,000,000. Of thin
amount $17,000,000 or more will be taken
off by repealing the taxes ou batik capital
and deposits, l)ank checks, matches, &c.
An additional reduction of $3,750,000 will
be caused under the provisions of the bill
by taking oil*about 50 per centoi the special
taxes paid by liquor dealers and tobacco
manufacturers and dealers. Nearly
j nine-tenths of this sum will be represented
by the reduction of the tax on retail liquor
dealers from $25 {o $12, and of the tax on
dealers of manufactured tobacco from $5 to
j $2 50 The bill also provides for a reduc1
tion of the tax on cigars from $0 to $5
per thousand. This provision will
cause a reduction of about $3,000,000.
When the bill is being considered
' nil rfThrf. will hp mniln tn m1<l n plmicn ro.
I (luting the tax on distilled spirits to fifty
cents a gallon, and on manufactured tobacco
to eight centa Both will probably
fail. An eflort will also be made to abolish
the tax on leaf tobacco sold by the producer
to any one save a licensed dealer.
Should it prevail, it would be almost fatal
j to those manufacturing tobacco. If the tax
on manufactured tobacco is reduced, the
time will be fixed far enough ahead to allay
agitatiou, und there will, no doubt, be
also a provision for rebate for tax-paid
goods in lho hands of dealers.

St. Louis, May 23.?The remarkable pro
ceedings of Jtidgo Laughlia, of the St
Louis criminal court, in the Stanley Water
loo contempt ca3e, ia the absorbing topic o
the day.
Several days ago, the Chronicle, an even
ing paper, published an item reflecting 01
the integrity of Judge Langhlin, intimatin;
that he had been bribed by th"o gamblen
The judge ordered Stanley Waterloo, tin
managing editor and principal propricto
of the Chronicle, to appear before his cour
to answer for contempt of court. Waterloo
accordingly appeased with attorneys Juiigi
Hayden and J. G. Lodge, and made answe
that the article in question was publish?
in the Chronicle bv his consent and wit]
his sanction, and that ho was willing t
take the responsibility. Judge Laughlii
said that it was questionable whether h
could summarily punish an editor for pub
Hulling unfavorable criticisms upon hi
conduct; whether such criticism could b
regarded as a contempt of court and puti
ished by the court. lie further sal
it was a disputed question whether th
courts had a right to punish for such con
tempt, but in tno opinion of many lawyer
and men on the bench, it was the duty th
judge owed the tribunal to resent such ai
rr? *i.:?
luauu. ituoitiu. ju itnti uiwiiur i iiuui
both tho court and myself personally hav
been aggrieved. I think my first duty is ti
redress "the wrong of the court and thei
tho personal wrong."
Late last night it was discovered that th
. author of tho offensivo criticism was ex
i Judge Horatio M. Jones. This morning
s from the bench of the criminal court,Judg
! Laughlin said that the situation had ma
. terially changed; that he now knew th
namo of tho writer of the article, and soor
s er or later ho would settle tho matter wit
Mr. Waterloo; that when ho left tho benci
last evening, ho 'had intended t
tako off his badgo of servitud
i and resiRn; now, liko Grant, li
would not retreat under firo. As toth

J made public his letter of declination. It is
i in answer to a letter from Gen em) Georgo
t Lear, chairman of tho convention, in which
' he urges Mr. Marshal to accept tho 1101111?
nation, as being a long stride forward iu
the direction of independenco iu politic*.
Mr Marshall's answer is quiet and dignified.
in it he says: I
"It would have nHorded mo satisfaction j
to enforce and maintain tho proposition |
that public trusts should be administered j
with the same scrupulous fidelity as private 1
trusts; that no diversion from tho original
purpose should he permitted. It is mock-1
ery of common business senso to displace |
tried and faithful public servants in order:
to provido places for hungry applicant*), who
may prove as worthless as they are voracious.
No sane man so acta in his private
' ullairs. It is especially repugnant to sound
economy in tho administration of public
interests. Tho use of public patronage to
control or direct the people in their choice
of candidates for otlico is a grave political
crime. It subverts tho principals of representative
Government and tends to make
tho servant master to the common debase*
; ment of the people. To have aided, in some
" degree, in culling attention to these vital
questions of the hour would have been my
duty as a nominee. The great moral and
political ideas which called tho Republican
party into existenco have beuome embodied
in the oipinic law of the land. If it is the
iniasinn of tho nrAuitnt t\>irlv nnnmijiitinn
to go forward in the spirit oi tho platform,
1 it should succeed. If it fails to.come up to
the full measure of its promise, it should
perish. Mere party obligations sit very light|
ly on my shoulders. The call upon me for
partv service was a genuine surprise; one
not likely to be repeated in a lifetime. It
came unsought anu Hliould not be declined
without adequate and commanding reasons.
Such exist in my case. Personal and private
duties, in "which the public take no
interest, demand that all my energies be
devoted to their fulfillment. I therefore
must decline the proffered position."
In an interview, to-night, Mr. Marshall
says ho will not attend the Independent
convention and will support General
Beaver for Governor, but that he will not
support RawJe.
The Independent Movement.
Philadelphia, May 23.?-Probably two'
thirds of the delegates to the Independent
Republican convention are now here.
State Chairman McKee says that ho has
letters and telegrams from which he gathers
that most of the other delegates will be
on band in tbe morning and that the con:
vention will be a full one.
J Senator Mitchell was a guest of Mr. E. tt.
Wood to-night. The reception at Wood's
! residence was entirely social. It was not atj
tended by many leading Independents of
; this city, who regarded the reception as ill
1 advised, fearing that it would be coustrued
as a caucus for setting up a ticket for tomorrow's
convention. Senator Mitehcll
did not stay at Wood's very long.
s Tho Philadelphia delegates were in
{ session to-day about three hours. They
decided not to vote on a delegation but to
leave each individual member to his own
judgment upon all questions. Some
favored placiug Judge Ludlow, a Democrat
and the common pleas judge of this city
on the ticket for Supreme Judge.
The large majority will likely support
Major Merrick, of Tioga, for Governor,
and Colonel W. Jr. McMichael, of Philadelphia,
for Congressrnun-at-Law, with
Judge Agnew or George Shirar, of Pittsburgh,
for Supreme Judge. Tho indications
are thai Merrick, McMichael and
Shirar will find places on the ticket. It is
also proposed to place Isaiah II. Weaver,
or some other able colored man, on the
| Tho authoritative announcement of lion. \
Thomas M. Marshall's withdrawal from the I
regular ticket gives great satisfaction to the
delegates from all parts of the State, though
many are disappointed because the terms1
of the letter preclude tho Independents

5 Philadelphia, May 23.?Gen. George
c Lear, president oT the recent convention,
Y expreeses satisfaction with the letter,.be7
cause it does not indulgo in tho harsh
1 terms that some anticipated. Lear says
that the vacancy must be filled by another
convention made up ol delegates newly
elected, as the recent convention adjourned
( sino die. Several members of tho State
central committee, however, assert that the
committee should fill the vacancy. Lear
says that he has no doubt that the Suite
committee, upon reilection, will see that it
- will be necessary to have tho vacancy
f filled by a new convention, from
motives of policy alone, if for no other
reason. Chairman Cooper says that
the delegates could only bo

[The United Prfcsbyterian church of

consummated in Pittsburgh May 2(5, 185S. Cotnn
In 1773 certain ministers seceded from the
Established church of Scotland on the anj 0
ground of corruption of doctrine aud

nation- became popular, and sent mission- stages
aries to America. They united with the ^jjDj
Coveuanters, and the new church was uessii
called "The Associate Reformed Presbyte- y,K
riau church." It was to this organization dents
that Dr. John Mason, one of the most elo- Lon
quent preachers of any age or country, be- Cotnn
louged. Some of the original secession
church refused to enter this union. They. n,e re
also increased rapidly. But in 185S they on pu
agreed to unite with the Associate Ke- ja
formed church, and the new organization rcfuse
was called "The United Presbyterian
church." The church has a ministry of Frenc
over seven hundred. Its members numbed- niiuis
over eighty thousand, and it contributes tranqi
annually about $1,000,000 to religious pur- jncit{,

The church in her home work has been ^er0
active and earnest. It refused to admit sjn(.Jj
slave-holders to its fellowship. This caused rjmon
a division,, and. the associate reformed |,j,n (
synod of the South was organized. This duy.'f,
branch sang psalms aud sold slaves, and jze(j c
sometimes sent their visiting brethren from he fir
the North homo with a gentle reminder torepl
that tarand feathers were strong arguments
south of Mason aud Dixon's line. Lately
negotiations for a union have been in progress,
but these have fallen through, the cu|i0'r
Southern brethren fearing that there might defem
be some reference to the past "unpleasant- unt |c
ness" that would stir up feelings that ne83ei
could not well be expressed in orthodox ^jc
language. This conclusion may have been Tj,ur,
partly hastened by a poem entitled "The tw0 j
North Star Line," describing the rescuing u,e
of fugitive slaves and their escape by the (joor
help of ciders and deacons at the North. >[..11,,
