Attack upon a Judge—Loss of Life, j
pr0m the Sew Orleans Mullet in. Sept. 7.
Rwjy has our city, too fruitful in scenes of j
V„od been marked by an occurrence more ap-,
:;aniri and disastrous than that winch signulis-1
el the night of the 5th. . 1
U i3 painftil to go into a brief review* of the
causes which led to these deplorable transac-j
:ons, but it is our duty so to do upon receiving ,
*nch*information as can be tclied on. Since j
ti e death of Mr. Unix by Giquel, a very const
Arable excitement has prevailed in our city
Gainst the latter, and which w as much aug
paired upon his being discharged from con
finement upon giving bail.
(;, llh.|, it is known, was hist brought before
j .to Preval. one of the associate Justices, who
hearing testimony, amt t!.e law* bearing
v,’on the subject, gave his decision against the
admission of Giquel to bail, who was then com- -
netted to prison to await his trial at the ensuing j
scs<ion of the Criminal Court. This decision,
whether just or not, appeared at least to be a;
p pijlarone, which however is bv no means an j
unerring test of its soundness.
The decision of Judge Preval wras based on |
the act of 1S07, by w hich in capital offences,
and some oth» r enumerated ones, the accused .
was precluded from the benefit of bail. He was 1
probably further strengthened in his decision
hr section 19th of the Constitution of the State of
Louisiana, which reads as follows: “AH prison
shali bebdlable by sufficient securities,;
unless for capital off nces, where the proof is ;
evident or presumption great, and the privilege
of the writ of habeas corpus shall not he sus- j
ponded.” &-c. His ground of objection was
nniniv as to his jurisdiction. Without going;
inta an argument as to the interpretation of j
thesestatuturv and constitutional acts, we will .
only add, that quite a diversity ol opinion as to i
t:ie proper and legal construction prevails; some
atfirnungth.it hail cannot be received, however |
gi^atthe hardship might piove in many cases, j
where the least assumption of guilt attaches to
tne accused, while others contend lor a much
mare liberal interpretation, and that the statu
t'W* provisions have been repealed.
1 p>n the failure of being admitted to bail by [
Judge Preval. the counsel f 'r Giquel obtained
a w • it of habeas corpus, upon which he was
breight behre Judge Bermudez, he being cm- j
lowered ns a Judge of the Bi obate Court, to is- ;
ce and d« t mine on such process. After a:
bag examination of witnesses, and a patient
attention to counsel on both sides. Judge Her- j
tnud-z. oa Monday last, decided thui the ac- |
h id a right to be admitted to bail, which
according y taken in the sum of 815,000. j
and G quel di-ch irged from confinement.
It was apparent that public feeling was still ,
nst the deci'ion. and that some excitement
w..* occasioned hv it. Little howe\erdid we i
imagine tL.it it would extend so lar, as to pro- j
‘lace the lamentable results of Monday night, j
0a this night it appears that some personal
fn’nds of Mr. Crux, who had been killed by
G q n*!. in company with several other indivi i
• u.i \ f»>el'ti<r exasperated at the release ol Gi
and the Judge who had been the author of

with a view to Lynch him, or inflict some j
_ktf> punishment upon Ins person,
fney knocked at ihe door of his house, which 1
ll. >n b**iiu» opened by him, some individuals j
"Hitinded, it he were judge Bermudez, and it j
wrre. that he must go along or march with i
1 Bne of the individuals, Mr. Bailtey, we
*'re informed, put his hands on the judge, using
s me force, with a view to get him along, in
consequence o.‘ winch a scuffle ensued, which
re*u,t*d in the death of Mr. Bailley, lie being
scabbed with a sword. A Mr. Kagan was at
t'e same time engaged in the attack on the

eal:i °f these individuals, the others in front im
^lutely left. These are in substance the par
iculars ot tins lamentable business, so far as we

^c:s dt)d hold a highly respectable standing in
^C!e*y with a large circle of relatives and

At the town meeting to be held on Thursday j
afternoon, on the subject of the Roads, I think ■
it would be a good time to take up the subject ,
of the District Bank. I do hope that the sub-!
ject may be looked into and a Committee ap-'
pointed to meet any similar Committee on the
subject that may be appointed on the part of!
Washington and Georgetown. It i9 pretty well j
understood that if the trade expected from the :
Chesapeake and Ohio Canal, should come, that j
the present Banks will not be able to afford such
facilities to business men, particularly those who J
have but small capitals, as will justify their ope
rating to any extent in the produce that may
come dow-n the Canal. Besides, there will be
additional capital wanted for manufacturing
purposes. The charters of the present Banks
expire in two years from October, and perhaps
they will never again be renewed. Under these i
circumstances, a District Bank, with a sufficientj
capital, with branches in Georgetown and here, j
would be very desirable; particularly if the Di* j
rectors did not hold life-estates at the Board.— j
In the creation of such a Bank, Congress w ould,
however, exercise such a proper caution as
would prevent it. A Merchant.
The writer of "A Virginian,” has quite unne- j
cessarily worked himself into a great stew about j
my little piece, and has in consequence given
vent to an effusion as prurient and characteris- i
tic as it w as uncalled for. When I professed to
be a friend ol the propositions broached at that j
meeting I was emirely sincere, and my only ob
ject in my communication w’as to protest before
hand against any probable increase of the bur-j
den of taxation under w hich we now groan and |
chafe, and to express the opinion that one ten- !
dency of the preliminary measures coritempla- j
ted in the resolutions, was to distract and para
lyse our effor ts to complete the Alexandria Ca
nal. Further than this, 1 am not aware that 1
said a word; and surely these are points which
may be debated without rousing the potent ire
of “A Virginian.” His intemperance in his re- j
marks upon me and my observations shows him (
to be too much wedded to his darling scheme j
to discuss it and the matters connected with it j
calmly and coolly, either in the newspaper or at j
the coining meeting; and 1 shall, therefore, with j
all prudence, keep out of his way, as he shows a j
strong inclination, (saying nothing of the ability)
to be vastly severe upon every poor devil w ho
may ex pi ess views conflicting with his own.
An A lex an dio an.
Mr. Editor:—You will much obiige one of
your Subscribers by publishing in your useful
paper the following piece which appeared re
cently in the Georgetown Metiopolitan under
the signature of “Fox”:—much of it is applica- j
bleto our situation, and 1 have no doubt many ;
of your readers will be pleased to see it. S.
S'ejif. 19/A, 1836.
Let me then, in view of the immediate subject j
of tins bi ief and this hurried note, inquire—what j
is a tax? it is a portion of his property given up j
by a citizen, in order to secure and enjoy the j
lest. It is a trust which of all others, requires
the utmost care and prudence in its exercise,
for it is the sceptre which sways not only the
outward tenure of men’s possessions, but which j
influences also those thousand minute springs
of action, on which the moral w elfare and per
sonal happiness of societies repose. How cau
tious then should be the inceptive step of assess- !
ment, and how free from all bias the judge who j
determines the ratable value of his neighbor’s
property; how lar off should be warded the per
nicious counsels of the greedy monopolist whose
whole soul is centred in self?—of the grasping
miser, w ho w’rings from the distresses of his fel
low men even the pound of flesh winch is “no
minated in the bond.”—and worst of all. of him. i
the deluded speculator, who is branded by holy
writ, with the guilt of “hastening, at ail peiilsto
get rich.” *But once assessed, another fearfully
important function remains that of collection,
with or without regard to times. 1 mean the le
vy by distress in case of delimit—a pow’er which
eiiguiphs all other power, as Aaron’s rod swa!
lowed up all the rest; placing if not life, all that
contributes to life and makes it dear—the means
of support—the chil ten’s bread—the wife’s pil
low_the man’s pride—in the hands of a few in
dividuals, virtually irresponsible, for the work
ing of this tremendous engine. A tax once ra
ted may be seemingly equitable and rightly pro
portioned, which in truth has no correspondence
with the necessities of the payer; it may slightly
and beneficially mulct the rich man, while it
sweeps away the very foundations of a poor
man’s support. All taxes are liable to this prac
tical injustice—but here, they are glaringly, no
toriously pnn/uctire of it. The real estate of the ;
town is now almost entirely under the threaten- j
ed hammer of the auctioneer. Observe the long j
advertisements in your paper. Consider the j
liens and trust deeds of our banks, and the pii-.
vate mortgages w li ch shingle the soil. And yet
all this estate is taxed to the verv highest point of
endurance; who pays? is it the rich bank or mo
oey lender, or is it the oppressed debtor already
overwhelmed and pressed to the earth with a
load of obligations: the reply is obvious.
What is it that clogs the transfer of property,
rendering it a burden to the owner, and a worth
less investment to the capitalist? What is it
that diminishes the available means of the citi
zen, and lessens his income, s«> that the butcher, i
baker, and grocer feel annually an important i
amount subtracted from his outlay? W hat is it
that once taken from the productive capital of
the community is absorbed, becomes dead, un ,
productive, anil never returns? What is it that
lowers rent and lessens all profit*? lax. tax. |

A Scene.—On Friday afternoon as the new
ferry boat from Williamsburgh to Peck Slip was
entering the latter place, the order was given to
stop the engine. The engineer attempted to do
so, but the lever used for that purpose broke in
his hand, and to stop was now impossible. The
captain instantly sang out to the passengers,j
and told them to stand fast, as “go they must.” i
and go they did. About twenty gentlemen j
formed a compact ring, backing each other,1
and patiently stood waiting the shock.
The boat went full speed against the wharf,!
which, being newly built, was driven up several :
feet. The shock was so severe that every thing '
and every body on board were prostrated. The
gentlemen who had formed the ring came to the
deck in a heap. Some ladies in the cabin cut
queer figures, and the horses presented a funny
sight as they went upon their knees.—AT. V. (Jaz.
The Merchant’s Clerk, and other Tales; by 1
Samuel Warren, LL. £)., author of “Passages '
from the Diary of a Physician:” 1 vol. N. Yoi k:
Harper & Brothers. It has not before to our
knowledge, been public*y asserted that the high
ly wrought “Passages from the Diary of a Phy-1
sician” had an avowed author. The fact, how- j
ever, stated in the advertisement to this volume
by the publisher, that Dr. Warren had furnish-1
ed to their agent in Europe the sequel of “the i
Merchant’s Clerk,” a tale only commenced in i
Blakwood’s Magazine, and that he acknow- i
ledges himself the author of the other tales in'
this volume, “the Wagoner,” “Monkwyare,” 1
•‘the Bracelets,” and “the Adventures of a New- j
foundland Dog,” would seem to establish that j
gentleman as the writer of these powerful, j
though unequal, sketches. The Merchant’s •
Clerk is certainly of deep interest—yet painful ,
and discouraging. At least we like, less and
less, as life advances, those delineations of it ;
which shadow forth its difficulties and suffer-!
ingsonJy. The reality is sad enough, and lite-,
rature should rather seek to inspire cheerful-;
ness, than harrow with imaginary griefs.—Xew

of Fairfax Court House, and about sixteen
miles from Washington, Alexandria and Geo.
Town—the roads from Centreville to Occoquan
and from Alexandria to Brentsville, running
through it, as well as the survey of the Rail
Road from Alexandria to Falmouth. There is
on said land a large Dwelling House, tw’o stories
high, with eight rooms, besides the garret; a
good Kitchen and Weaving House adjoining,
all with stone chimneys, and in good repair;
also, a good House for an overseer, or for.a ten
ant, and plenty of never-failing Springs of as
good Water as any in the State, and a very ex
tensive Orchard of the best of Iruit of different
kinds. There is an abundance of Wood and
Timber Land to support the farm and more if
required. There can be about 20 tons of grass
a year from it. Also, adjoining, a Lot of 20
acres, with a newly erected Tan Yard, sufficient
for 4 or 5 hands to work, and in a good neigh
borhood for hides and bark, and ready sale for
leather. As this is one of the healthiest, hand
somest, and most pleasant situations in the coun
ty, it would make a fine summer retreat for a
gentleman from any of the cities, or U would
make a first rate Grazing and Dairy Farm.—

annual payments, to bear interest from the date.

1WILL sell, on the most accommodating
terms, the property called Sudlly Mills, si
tuated in the County of Prince William, Va.,
.-v near the Loudoun line. The Merchant Mill
Mi.runs two pair of Burrs, capable of making
twenty-five barrels of flour ner day. 1 here is
also a Corn and Plaster Mill: attached to the
above is a good Saw* Mill, which may )c made
very profitable, as it is in a neighborhood,
where lumber is much wanted, and timber quite*
abundant. If required, I would sell with the
Mills two or three hundred acres of good land,
on which there is a Mineral Spring of very va
luable water, fast growing into notice, and
would, no doubt, be much resorted to if im
proved. Mr. Wm. Dean, of Alexandria, is ac
quainted with my terms, which will be found to
be extremely moderate. G. II. CARTER,

I Will sell the FARM upon which I reside, ly
ing upon the Potomac river, in the lover
part of Charles county, Maryland, containing
about 390 acres, one-half of which is under a
growth of the finest and heaviest timber. I he
situation is healthy, and the prospect fine and
extensive. U is well adapted to the growth of
all the various crops usually cultivated in the low
er counties which are abundant, and not surpass
sed il equalled, by any other farm in that part of
the county. But what especially recommeud
it at this particular period, is its admirable loca
tion for a fishery, though yet untried. It is ad
joiningto, and immediately below Swart Point,
where there is now a fishery in most Successful
operation. It possesses extent of beach, and
berth for a seine of almost any length; and from
its location necessarily defended from the north
erly and easterly winds, to which many of the
Potomac landings are much exposed.
Persons wishing to purchase are invited to vi
sit the premises and judge for themseWes.
