h'kt Indian Agent, Wiley Thompson Lieut.
Constantine Smith, Erastus Roger*, an two oth
er*,Were murdered br the Indian*.
On Monday the 23th nil., a party of ten rocu,
dining at the house of Erastus Rogers, Sutler, at
Camp King, wen- fired upon while silting at ta
ble, by a party of Indians. The hnusa was not
abore 250 yards from the block house. Rogers
was sitting at the bead of his table, when the first
information firen of the presence of the foe was
a rolley of, it is thought, at least 1<K) shot, pour
ed in upon them through the open deor.
Tha Indians rushed U|K>tt the house. Those
in, not killed, sprang out of it, at the windows,
on each side. Fire, fleeing forCamp King, es
caped. The other*, fleeing for a hammock close
by, were shot down.
The fire of this party Haiti, were General
Thompson, Indian agent, Lieut. Smith, Erastus
Rogers, the Sutler, Sugg*, & Hitzler. Through
General Thompson were shot fifteen bullets and
sixteen through Roger*. The Indian* scalped
all, taking off their scalp clear around the head,
a* far as the hair extended, and lhcn beating in
their skull*. The heads of Roger# and Suggs,
were shockingly mangled. AM thi* was done
in open day-light, within 250 vards of Camp
King -and iu view of lhe fifty U. S. troops
there at that lime, it hy did they not rnsli out
to their rescue, or rather, why did they not ply
the two six-pounders iu the block bouse, upon
these bold savages, committing, before their
face and eyes, within two hundred aud fifty
yards, such deeds ol barbarity.
On Sunday morning, fhe 1 Oth inst., Ihe
dead body of a man was found lying on
the turnpike about a tnilleand a half below
‘this place; and on examination, it was
found to be that of a poor invalid, by the
name 6f Michael O'Brfen, Mho had been
living for some time in this neighborhood J
A coroner’s Jury was summoned, who re
turned a verdict “ that the deceased came
to his death by exposure to the cold ”—

Melancholy Event —On Mon day' last
Mr. Jacob Hummer of this county, while
attending to a threshing machine in opera
tion on his larm, was entangled in it ami
instantly killed.—ib

On Sunday morning last, in this place,
Mrs. Eliza Boyd, aged 33 years, consort
of Mr. James S Boyd. The deceased has
left beluud her a large family or children,
and a numerous circle of friends ai.d relit
tiucs to mourn her loss.
“ Friciul after friend departs,
Who has not lost a friend f”
Departed this life ia the animating prospect of
a belter, on the 27th of December, 1375, Mrs
Ann Hannah, wife of Mr. James Hannah, and
eldest daughter of Mr. Stephen Mayer, in the
72d year of her age. Seldom has the giave clo
sed upon the remains of a more excellent woman.
She wss a good specimen of the simplicity and
•rtlessuess of primitive Christianity, it, rdorues
tic and religious obligations were discharged
with cheerfulness and punctuality. Having ma te
•n avowal of her attachment to the cause of tiio
Redeemer, she sustained her profession by the
cxact performance of all its public amt private
duties. The disposition which induced tier to
desire and promote the happiness of others, se
cured for her in return the affectionate good will
of all, who by any means were thrown within
Ihe circle of her kind anil gentle influence. She
met her last & only enemy with composure & has
entered we doubt not upon “that rest which re
mains for the people of LioJ.
“An Angel’s arm could not snatch her from the
grave,
Legions of angels cannot confine her there.”

meut of their Third Volume on the tlfiih of March
ensuing, a Double Quarto Edition of their jour
ua‘» ioatead of but in addition to tbal now pub*
jlished. Advertisements, except possibly a few
ol a strictly literary character, will be entirely
excluded ; and, iu addition to all the matter pre
sented in the folio ‘ New Yorker,’the Quarto
will contain a page of popular music, Sec. aud be
accompanied by a handsome Title Page and com
prehensive Index at the close of the Volume,
The general features of the New Yorker wili
remain essentially as they have he nV lore been
Its columns will coutain —
I. Gtntrul Literature.— Original Talcs, Es
says, Reviews, Poems, Sc" with corresponding
Selections from the Quarterlies, Monthlies, and
all tiio he tie i class ol periodical*. Foreign and :
American, with choice extracts from new works
ol substantial excellence. The Editor asknowl
edgeg with pride and gratitude hi* obligations
to his regular contributors; aud among them there
i arc some whose names have shed lustre on the
cause of American literature—for the stedfatt
support hitherto afforded him, snd the confidence
with which he is now < nableil to assure the pub
lie that it will not soon be withdrawn. He lake*
pleasure in recalling the fact that, since the cs
tablishment of the Now-Yorker, no one other
journal has afforded specimens in equal extent
aud variety, ofthe productions of all emincut A
1 meric an wi iters of what ever section or class—a
characteristic which he hopes it may still pro
[serve ; while his selections from fuieigo works
have been exceeded—in quantity at least—by
those of but three or four among the myriad of
, cis-Atlantic periodicals.
■ II- Aational Toll lies. It has been the aim of
, Editor to present a full exhibition of the as
i peels, movement* and struggles, of parties in our
country, including the meeting of conventions,
[ nomination of candidate* for State and National
j Officers, aud all other significant manifestations
| of political feeling, with the general results of
elections, as last as ascertained, and the otlicial
canvass in each instance, as soon as it shall have
! reached us. This course is believed to he
in many respect* original with this journal,
and it is considered that ws have just cause of
felicitation in the fart that, pursued as it has
I been through two years of unreinillrd political
i warfare, the fumes* and general accuracy of our
statements and returns Imre very rarely, if erer,
been questioned Tlu- EJiiur r>serves to him
self the right of remarking, as circumstance may
seem to require, and justice to dicate, on the
Tss exciting political topics of the day, as on all
others, with calmness, deference aud modera
tion; but be will strive— he trus ■ not less siic
ci sslully than hitherto—to exclude from the col
umns of the New Yorker every observation, re
: flection, or even argument, which may wantonly
I do violence to the sincere conviction of any well
nformed reader, of whichever party-,
j 111. General Intelligence.— In tins department
we can only- promise the most unwearied itidus
i try and patience in the collection, condensation
ninl arrangement of the news, Foreign and Do
! naeslio, which may- he gathered from the week
| ly reception cf four hundred journals, including
I some choice European periodicals, add which
i may be afforded us by the attention of enrfriend*
j abroad ; among whom arc our fated correspond
ents at Pari* and Mexico. Although the favors
I cf these last will generally wear a literary ra
; (her than a political aspect, we are yet justified
i in onr confidence that no important intelligence
j which their position will enable them to trims
j mit to us more succinctly or speedily than it
, would otherwise reach us will in any case be
withheld.
literary iXolti' s, statistics, liriif notices of
, works of Art, Amusements, the Drama, Sic, Sic,
i will from time to time be given. Asa general
1 rule, however, it will be the aim of tin' Editor

! tcclcd, as shall at least combine instruction w ith
. entertainment.
The Quarto New-Yorker will be published
! every Saturday afternoon on an extra imperial
sheet of the finest quality, comprising sixteen
pages of three columns each, and afforded to its
patrons in city and country, at THHEC DOL
LARS per annmn, payable inflexibly in advanco.
Orders from a distance unaccompanied by a re
mittance, will necessarily remain unanswered.
Any person or persons sending us Five Dollars
free of |>08tflge or other charges, will receive
two copies for One year or a single copy fur two
i years, and in the same proportion for a larger
; sum. The few who may desire to take the fo
| lio edition for immediate perusal and the Quarto
1 f ir binding, will be entitled to receive both for
s$4,00 in advance. Wo will cheerfully preserve
their files of the Quarto for any such w ho may
| desire it.
The subscribers are extremely solicitous that
there be no misconception outlie part of their
; patrons in regard to the two editions of their pa
per. The Quarto is commenced in deference to
tile sociitations of a great number of their friends,
who have expressed a strong desire that the
I New Yorker should appear in a form more tus
| cepti tile of preservation than the prevent. It is
| neither anticipated nor hoped that it will receive
a patronage at all commensurate with that of the
folio edition. They would frankly express their
conviction that, for those whose interest in a
journal expires with the week in winch it rench
<s them, toe lattei w ill be decidedly preferable
aside from tbe difference in price. Accordingly
when an order for the ‘New-Yorker, simply.
Without specification, is sent them, the folio will
invariably be sent.
