At the date of my last, the case of Judge leny was considered the most important one under consideration of the V igilence Committee, although several prisoners of lesser note than the Judge were held in Fort .Vigiience. One of them, Philander Brace, it was geuerally supposed, would be executed for a double murder committed some two or three years since. Green was in prison until he should produce the Pue- -. bio titles, wrongfully held by him. Mc Gowan had not been caught, and the - chances of his capture were daily becoming liss. Matters about Fort Viinlence had as sumed rather an inactive ailearaiice, and many thought the week would wind up the . main business ot tue Committee, and tnat then they would lay down thair arms. On the 23d considerable excitement was caused by a report, whicli proved to be true, that the U. S. vessel of war at Bunicia and , Mare Island were making active prepara- . nous of a warlike nature. The arren, which has been lying several years at Ben ica, were put in complete fighting order, as wU as the Decatur, John Adams, and F.llmcra Cooper. Their men were kept up all night, getting the ships in good or der and charging their guns with ball and ifrape. It was known a project was on loot to induce the U. S. District Court to issue a writ for Judge Terry, as a witness in the Durkee "piracy" case, and to then place him on board the John Adams for protection; and it was generally supposed all these preparations were making in an ticipation of resistance to this project on the part of the Committee. 1 he next day, however, when it was known a strict watch and blockade was kept up by boats of the fleet at the enterance of Napa Creek, it began to be surmised that some one had been trying to "selL' Uncle Sam's gallant omcers by the story of an attack or sur prise by the Vigilance forces upon the forts, vessels of war, and government property. So many stories filled the air, that the com mittee deemed it best to inquire as to the objects of all these big navel preparations; and the whole thing was finally traded to Gen. Vblnev E. Howard, the Bobadil of our good Governor and Commander-in-Chief of all the "Law and Order" forces, who so ingloriously laid down their amies at the seige of the armories some six weeks since. Howard had really made the of ficer in command on this station believe that he and all his forces were to be swal lowed np incontinently by Charley Doane, the commander of the People's troops ! . Charley's assurance that the Committee would, under no consideration, attack our good old uncle, quieted the nerves of Com modore Earagert, and so the old ships have been taken into dock again, and the Com modore smokes his pipe in peace. ANOTHER MURDER. ; On Thursday afternoon, July 24 the community was again thrown into an in tense excitement by the announcement that still another deed of blood had been com mitted in a public place iu open day. Dr. Andrew Randall, an old and respected cit izen, had been attacked and shut down by Joseph Hetlierinffton, a gambler. He was looking over some letters which the book keeper handed him, when Helherington entered and walking up seized the Doctor by the beard, which is remarkably heavy and strong, and pulled it so violently as to move him five or six feet from his position, at the same time saying 'G d d n you I've got you now." The Doctor who had anticipated being attacked by Hethering ton, had armed himself with a revolver, and Hetherington, it seems always went armed. The Doctor as soon as he was thus attacked, felt for his pistol ; but be fore he could draw or discharge it, Hether ington had drawn his own and fired. Im mediately after Hetherington fired the Doctor fired, and in a few seconds they each fired again. By that time Dr. Ran dall had moved around the end of the book-keeper's desk and was behind it by the side of the book-keeper, and was stoop ing down, when Hetherington ran up, reached over the counter, and fired a third shot, striking his victim in the head, and inflicting a fatal wound. Immediately upon the tatal shot being given, Dr. Randall felL The bar-room, meanwhile, was filled up with persons rush ing in, and Colonel Gift and some others sprang upon Hetherington to prevent mur der; but it was too late the deed had been done. Dr. Randall was immediately conveyed to his room in the third story of the house, where his wounds were examined by Drs. Totand, Gibbons, and others, and immedi ately pronounced mortal. He at first ut tered a few incoherene ejaculations, but, in a short time, became speechless and appa rently insensible, in which condition he re mained during the whole night. . Fortunately there were several eye wit nesses to this horid deed, so there will be little or no difficulty in getting at tho real facts of the case. They were all required to go before the Committeo last evening, to give th -dr te timony. . The ever active Vigilant boys were soon on the ground, to take charge of the offen der, who had already been arrested by the police officer; but when informed that his presence "would be required at another tri bunal, he was quietly given up and consign ed to Fort Vigilance. The California papers are filled with de tailed accounts of the trial of Hetherington, and his execution which took place on the 30th of July, in the presence of an im mense crowd. Over 20,000 were present, and 3000 of the Vigilance troops were on hand to preserve order and to prevent the possibility of a rescue. 1 it of RUMORS OF JUDGE TERRY'S ACQUITTAL. Judge Terry is still in the bauds of the Committee. It is currently reported that he had been acquittod by the Executive of the Committee; but the Delegates of the Companies had voted adversely on this de cision. The modus opera ndi of the Vigi lance Committee appears to be this: First, 11 the evidence on both sides is here before a Committee of Inquiry, of nine memlxirs. This evidence is submitted to the Executive of twenty-nine, who vote on the verdict Each of the 66 companies, severally, con sisting of about one hundred men, choose three delegates, as a sort of lower house, to confirm or. annul tho vote of the upper bouse. Amajnrity of the 198 "Mgiilf, it appears, voted to refer Terry's case back to the Executive Committee. It is probable s-me decision has been had ere this and it is not at all unlikely the Judge will be shipped to-day. COMMITTEE GOING TO DISBAND. j Reports are gaining ground that the Committee will disband as a military organ ization in a few days. But my own opin ion is, that the inveterate feeliug of hostili ty that exists against them on the part of the small minority of our citizeps, and the officers of the law, will compel them to stand to their arms until the meeting of the next Legislature, when an act of am nesty will be passed. The cost of the or ganization is only about $500 a day, most of the duty being performed gratis. The famous'banking house of Palmer, Cook fe Co., is put down on charge as hav ing failed, for not taking up the Coupons that fell due last mouth, in Xew York.

She brings San Francisco dates to the 5th, and Aspiuwall to the 20th Au gust. The steamer Illinois left Aspinwall on the latter date for Xew York, with 1,500, 000 in the treasure, 500 passengers, aud the California mail of August 5th. Business was dull in San Francisco. The Vigilance Committee was iu full force; they had made more arrests and ex ecuted two persons since the departure of the last steamer. ' Additional California News. NEW YORK, Aug. 28. The Vigilance Committer on the 29th of July hung Jos. Helherington for the murder of Dr. SandaL They also hung a man named Grace, for a murder committed by him a year ago. Judge Terry was still kept a prisoner by the Cmmittee. Mr. Hopkins, the man whom he stabbed, had recovered. Several attempts had been made to fire both San Francisco and Sacramento. The loss by the Sierra Nevada fire is set down at 8200,000,000. The failure of Palmer, Cook fe Co. to pay the State and city coupons of New York, had created a feeling of indignation throughout the State, and the State Treas urer was to provide for the speedy payment of the overdue interest, The crops throughout the State were in a satisfactory condition. The San Francisco markets' were active during the early part of the week put closed dull. Serious disturbances had occurred in diff erent parts of the State between Americans and foreigners. . The latest dates from Nicaragua are to the 9th inst The accounts represent the condition of Walker as very precarious. A large body of troops from San Salva dor and Guatemala were at Leon under the command of Gen. Cabeno. Many desertions are reported among Walker's men, including, it is said, one en tire company. A rebort was current that Walker had re voked the exequatur of the British Consul at Leon. Another attempted revolution in Costa Rica had been suppressed. From the Ashland Times, August 21st. Another Lie Nailed. In the Ashland Union, of August 6th 1856, the following article appeared with a naming head : Fremont a Slaveholder. THE EVIDENCE COMPLETE. HE HIRES THEM OUT IN ST. LOUIS. The fact that Col. Fremont is, or has until recently been a slaveholder, can no longer be denied. A gentleman who now resides in St .Louis, who is well known in Penn xan," N. Y, writes to a friend in the latter place : - w nnin xne past year I have had occa sion to transact business with, and have fre quently been at the house of CoL Brant, Aud several of the domestics were frequent ly pointed out to me as the slaves of Col. J! remoni, ana tnese are not au either, as he owns many others, male and female, hired out in various parts of the cttu. The house of CoL Brant is the place at which CoL rremout makes his home when in St Louis. The writer of the above par agraph says: "Col Brant is a particular friend of mine. visit his house frequently. lie is a man of great wealth, and married, as you know, the sister of CoL 1. 11. Ujnton, and also makes his home there since Mrs. Benton's decease." The Providence Post adds to this testi mony "That Col. Fremont did own slaves three months before his nomination had been proved. That he" does NOW OWN SEVENTY-FIVE is positively asserted by the lliltsdale tfazette. . The above article was used extensively throughout this County by Buchaniers the stump speakers, esjecially, dwell upon this evidence, and insisted, although Mr. Fremont had said that he "never owned one aoiiar in numan nesii, mat he was at' the present time a slaveholder. Mr. Samuel Gautt, of Savannah, in this county, having obtained a copy of the article, sent to CoL Brant, of St Louis, enquiring as to its truth. In reply CoL Brant wrote as follows : ST. LOUIS, Aug. 12, 1856. Samuel Gautt, Esq. Bear Sir In reply to your note and slip, I have to say that Col. John C. Fremont to my knowl edge never owned a Slave, nor has he had slaves in or about my house, neither has he had slaves hired out in this City, Coun ty or State. The writer for the newspaper has, doubt less, mistaken Captain Jacob, of Kentucky, for Fremont, who also married a daughter Thos. H. Benton, and moved with his family and slaves to Boone Co , Mo., and some two years since returned to Kentucky with his negroes. He usually, as did CoL Fremont, srop at my honse. My wife is tho daughter of Samuel Ben ton, .deceased, of Texas, and a neico of Tbos. H. Benton, of Mi. So much .for tho veracity of the writer of ths slip sent me, which is false in every part and portion, gotten up for bad pur iioses hence I am induced to give it a flat contradiction, but hereafter I shall not re ply to sucli trash, CoL Fremont leing fully able to defend himself against these news paper slanders. obedient is J. B. BRANT. The original letter from CoL Brant may be seen at this office. Will tho Union have tho common cour tesy to correct irs slander 1 Will tho Plain Dealer also "have the ronrtcy to correct it slander ?" The Massillon Meeting. The Massillon Meeting. TEN ACRES OF FREMONTERS. At the Philadelphia Convention, it was suggested by the Young Men from Ohio, there in atteudauce, that a series of Mass Meetings of the Young Men of our State, friendly to Fremont and Freedom, should be summoned for the purpose of ratifying the gallant nomination of that Convention. The meetings have been held ; our readers know with what uunparalleled enthusiasm aud success. They know how triumphant ly the series started off at Dayton; a glo rious beginning that was nobly followed up at Fremont, and Zanesville, and at Chilicothe; and now it is our pleasure to ieli of the grand demonstration yesterday, at Massillon. The day was one of the lovliest of the season. Heaven smiles upon our cause. So, with such a day, and such a cause, al most the entire population of the region gathered at the call. Fverybody in Stark was there; and Wayne, and Summit, and Portage, and Mahoning, and Columbiana, and Tuscarawas, they came by hundreds and thousands. The speaking was in the grand Oak Grove, on tho high land southwest of the town. Five stands were erected, from which speeches were made, from one o' clock until six; four occupied by speakers who talked the languge in which the De claration of Independence was written, and one by German speakers. The speaking was of a very sterling character. Judge Spaulding of our city, open the ground tier, in a speech of great power and elo quence, and admirably to the point The speakers who followed, from the various stands, were General Bierce of Ak ron, Judge Hoadly of Cincinnati, Judge Humphry of Hudson, J. Mueller, Esq., of Cleveland, Chas. Hugus, Esq., from Indi ana, Mr. Goodhue of Akron, Mr. Orr, of Wooster, Secretary Baker, of Columbus, and when we left the grounds, further sieeches were expected from Geo. Brad- burn, and A. G. Riddle, Esquires, of Cleve land, and Hon. O. P. crown, of Ravenna. The speaking was of a very high order such speeches as are rarelv equaled on po litical occasions, tor this great cause ot r recdoru stirs men s souls to their pro- fouudest depths, and lends unwonted fire to all tongues. Songs, capitally sung, were scattered among the speeches, bv the tilee Clubs trom Akron and from Mans field, and there was also an abundance of the finest qunhty of instrumental music by a large number of Bands in attend ance. There was a fine Military display, a cap ital demonstration by the several trades, unnumbered Banners. ith admirable de vices, borne by clubs, delegations, fcc, fcc But of all this part of the demonstration, which we have never seen equaled on any occasion, we must omit report until to morrow the lateness of the hour at which we arrived home not permitting the prin ters to put it in type this morning. Of the number in attendance, a fair es timate would be perhaps 25,000. It was ascertained by actual count of the several township delegations, that 12,000 were in attendance fsom Stark County, outside of the town of Massillon. 1,800 tickets were sold at the Wooster Depot, Wayne Coun ty, and more called for. During the morn ing, ninety odd cars, crowded to their ut most, came into Massillon. Many of these were large platform cars, carrying something like 150 passengers each. It would 1be a a fair estimate to say that 9,000 people came into Massillon by the railroads, east aud west, by tho four trains of tho fore noon. Immense delegations came in from all directions, in wagons, and in all manner of mammoth vehicies built for the occa sion. From Bethlehem, from Sugar Creek, from Canal Fulton, from Milton, fe, fcc we counted a procession of nearly 200 wa gons, mostly two and four horse teams And there were scores of young men on horseback. There were 4,471 people in attendance from the county of Wayne, which county received a banner, it having the largest delegation outside of Stark. The township of Lexington also won a banner, reporting a delegation of 306 ; Su gar Creek was close upon them with a del egation of 300.' The total number in at teudauce must have ranged from 20,000 to 25,000. The grove where the meeting was gathered, is a lot of ten acres, partial ly enclosed as a show ground, and all parts of it seemed thronged with the crowd. Aud no more appropriate place could have been chosen in all the State, for a de monstration of Free Men in favor of Free dom. Massillon, one of the finest towns of Ohio and as for that, of the whole country is itself a noble specimen of Free dom's work. Its busy furnaces, and foun dries and machine shops, its fine churches and model school houses, and its cosey free homes, nestled so comfortably and so beau tifully in their groves aud gardens are all the product of the enterprise and skill of honorable Capital and Free Labor. It is the industry aud cunning of Free Labor that has built all these, and keeps up their 4.aily music, and has made that town hon orably known throughout the country. In such a town with sueh a people, Freedom and Fremont meet with a cordial welcome. Almost the first thing that met our sight as we left or hotel early in the morning, were these generous words "Welcome All!" woven of oak leaves, and running the whole broadside of every bcautifiul stone cottage, and as we passed by we found uixm th other side of the same cottage, the letters woven in the same tasteful uivlo- "Fee moxt akd Dayton-." Such seems to be the sentiment of the whole town (save one house, that had out M. undoubtedly.) It was everywhere, Fre mont, Dayton aud Freedom and the most generous and sumptuous Welcome, Welcome, to all. Throughout the day there was no noise no dissipation, but ev erything was in beautiful order, and the thousands who were in Massillon yesterday, will always remember the occasion with a cheerful pleasure.
