Mormon Difficulty.
Utah (s an organized Territy, with a Gov
ernor appointed by the President of the
CrrhecTOBiates; whose course has been so
far sanctioned by the Administration, that
' t here has sbeen no charge 'materially lor
yean in the officers or laws ly which they
were governed During ihit time Utah has

-Administration is now taking the wisest
-course is verv doubtful indeed. It may
however pnove the better policy, but we
dread the consequences. It seems that
Gen. Harkey, with men and means enough
to carrv war successfully into Mexico, is
ordered to Utah, to see that the new Gov
ernor and other officers are respected in
their various capacities. Without asking
Cbigbam Yotaa whether he will submit te
feeing rotated according to democratic rule,
and" without sufficient grounds- for judging
that he will not, they send out an armed
host, at a cost of over a million of dollars
4o demand of him to surrender bis office (not
hit wives) to a successor.
If there ;s any thing that is likely to
call out resitaace on the part of the Mor
mons, it is sending an army as though to
make war upon them. The officers of course
ebould be accompained by sufficient force
to command respect, and obedience, but
the Mormons should have been the egress-
ors. "The Government has no right to make
war on any State or territory except it be
rn declared in a state of rebellion. It U
true that Utah has refused to acknowledge
certain laws of the country, but is she in a
slate of rebellion against the Government
For the institutions of (J tab, there is no one
holds a more bitter aversion, than we do'but
not could the object be accomplished by more
udicious means? There are those who will
die martyrs to the cause, thinking they are
doing God service, and their blood will
nourish the delusion, and they will gain
strength by every auch means to put them

ors and the sympathy is changed to eur side
and cucrest is sure.
Temperance.
We are glad-to see the position a number
of our valuable-oorres pondents have taken
on Ibis all absorbing aubjeet. We regret that
many who once stood firm in the Temper
ance band, have ceased to take that interest
in the cause, , which used to characterize
their every act. And many who have given
their first attention to this subject in the
past, now pass by an article headed 'Temp
erance" as something stale and not even
worth a passing notice. To them it has
Ijtt its novelty but is it less important than
it ever wad Has intemperance ceased to
be that prolific soursa of evil that it former
ly wast Is there no demand for any further
restrant than is now practiced! Surely no
one will for a minute think so. Who is
there of all our readers, but sees-daily ample
cause for renewed zeal in the temperance
cause. Who baa not a friend, an acquaint
ance, some oBe in whom we are interested,
that it hastening bis distraction and death,
and why! because those who can do not, re
move the cause.
These poor mortals have become slaves to
nn appetite over which they have no con
trol, and it remains only for those who can
to remove the object of their desire from
their reach or be answerable for their ruin.
The cause has with some become unpopular
and there are ecen these who would rather
be caught druuk.Vian. be found advocating
Temperance. The two means that have
been used to eradicate tbe evil of intemper
ance, in a measure Lave failed. The one
sought to gain the end entirely through
'moral suction. The other having no faith
in so mild a means, sought tbe force of the
law. Now had these two force combined,
as they ultimately must, then we anticipate
surer success than Las cvef been gained.
That such will be the case we can have no
reasonable dooht. The people will not a
wave sleep. Thfy cannot always remain
inactive. The force of this growing evil
sweeping tLrougb community like a pest i
lence carrying off many of our best citizens,
destroying the peacetmarring the happiness
of all, carrying with it n tchedncs?, mis
ery and disgrace, t louding the bright pros
pects of many ornament to society ,cas:ing
a dark shaddow over the happiness and joy
of many a happy family, bearing with it all
the cencumitent a'tendomlcnti of this htU
sent curse, csr.net pass unheeded, must
uo go on unnoticed.
God forbid that the people should long
er refuse to act in this matter. But says
one 'what i6 to be done! sure 1 hive no in
nueiite Trunr ..a 1ST tntlig oi Iks

living. We are constantly, though it may
be 'unroucioubly exerting an ii.fluence
all around us, and it is for us to ssy whether
it will be for good or evil. Public opinion
nd moral suHion will do away with three
fourths of the evil of intemperance, and a
ivholeome adnraistraliun of law, will do
awny with the ssie of it, and also the re
mainder of the drinking. Now you have
the means, use mem to your own preserva

The Voice of the German Press—
The Defalcation—Morgan, Trevitt
and Medill with a

TRANSLATION.
There once was a tune when certain man
ifests' ions were regarded as indications of
corruption in the Democratic party, but
tliete manifestations are no longer nects-
sary to announce to the world the integrity
and morality of tbe pary; by its own con
duct it announces to the world that it is nut
on Iv corrupt but rotten to the core. If we
needed any sfoof to s'jbst intiate this por
tion, we think the course pursued by its
Press in relation to the Treasury dedica
tion as being sufficiently ample and conclu
sive. Notwithstanding the incontestible
proofs that the Treasury defalcation, or
rather embezzlement of the public funds, had
its rise and progress under the administra
tion of the Democratic party; In spite of the
warnings which Democratic Legislatures
ignored, and refused to consummate the
receseary enactments to protect the peo
ple's raoney;notwithslandiiigthe admissions
of Messrs. Morgan and Medill that they
were were well aware that Breslin was
guilty of embezzlement, and a defaulter;
notwithstanding that when examinations
were proposed, they always were declined
pr 63.irte4 by the Democracy; notwith
standing the incontrovertible fact that it
was Democratic officers, chiefly, vho pro-
daced the disorder, and caused the deficits
unblushingly in the face of all these things
does the Democratic Press grow rancorous,
and even Morgan's Press is venting its
spleen, and is laboring sedulously to fasten
its own shame on the young Kepublican
partr, and to impute more than an ordinary
portion to Gov. Chase. In all past time
the Democratic party has presented no in
dications of such thorough corruption as at
the present.
In other days the reserve guard of Demo
racy still embodied some honesty, and did
some acts in consequence with truth and
purity; but now all seems to bs steeped in
vileness and blows through the same trum
pet the deafening howls of shitne.
Chase is rbc first Governor of OHIO who
has honestly and with a vhole hsur'., deter
mined to arrest.even upon the slightest sus
picion, peculations and official misdemean
ors. To him, more than to any other State
official, are praises due for having promptly
interfered as a genuine patriot, not only
without regard to party affinities, but in op
position to counsel from members of hisown
party. And this man is now to be disgraced
by the meanest and vilest of motives whicto
actuate the human being.
Tbe trio, Morgan, Medill and Trevitt,
should hide their beads in shame, for they
were the ones, who, fully aware ofBreslin's
corruption, yet at the same time stood side
by side in the campaign, and not only gave
him their votes, but their influence, by
which his re-election was secured; and in
steal of uniting w ith those who really and
earnestly desire reforms, are now found ac
tively engaged in fabricating the most mis
erable and contemptible subterfuges to con
ceal Breslin's villainy, and so to represent
the transactions that ths charge ol emDez
lemenl that shall rest chiefly on Gibson's
shoulders; and ihey even seek to cover the
unimpeachable Chase with the basest impu
tations that ever were coined in the slime
and filth of this corrupt snd corrupting party
Miserably wretched must be the man, and
desperate indeed bis condition, who uncon
ditionally submits to the yeke of this party,
and who voluntarily obeys its every behest,
whether founded on right or wrong.

"Our Party is old as the Union."
To the Editor of Ike Belmont Chrokick:
Sib: I bave heard the above boast from
Democrats and Democratic Editors, and no
doubt but many belonging to the Demo
cratic party believe that their party can be
traced back to the foundation of our Govern
ment, aud that their party elected Washing
ton, Jefferson, Madison, Monroe, and Jack
ton, and that the permanency of our gov
ernment depends on the success of the De
mocratic party. Such should examine the
writings of Jefferson, Madison, and Monroe-
whom they claim to be the descendants of,
as well as those of John Q Adams, and the
old newspapers published in those days,
Those writings sLculd be read, and the His
tory of our Country well understood by
every American. Washington it is said was
elected by a unanimous vote of the people
Toward the close ol his last term a party
arose termed Atti-Federalists, opposed to
Washington's Administration. Although
many abhor tbe name of Federal, Washing
ton was one, or his opponents could cot
have been Ami-Federal ists. The Anti
Federal. sts chancing their name to Repub
licans elected Je-rson, Masisou tnd Mon
roe. - In the Kepublican convention or
caucus that rominated Mr. Monroe iu 13 lb',
Mr. MonroiVeciived eixty-five vo es and W.
ii. Craaford fifty-four votes fur the noiui
Nation aj crndidate--" RrjuiDllCau par
ly for the ('residency. Had Mr. Crawford
received a few more votes in the convention
he would have been nominated and no doubt
elected President ol the United States, and
would bave been considered a good Repub
lics . In Mr. Mouroe' cabinet we find,
John Q, Adams Sec. of State, W. H. Craw
ford Sec. ot the Treasury, and II. Cliiv was
speaker of the House, all prominent Repub
licans. On the 14th of February, 18J4,the
Republican convention or caucus, to n.nui
nate candidates for President and Vice-Pre
sident, was held in Washington City. The
numes of Crawford and Adams were before
the convention, ai.d W. II. Craw.ord receiv
ed the nomination. Crawford was nominat
ed by the Republican party, or by iheir con
vention. J. Q. Adams, and H.Clay were
each supported for the Presidency by their
friends. Gen. Jackson, who had been elect
ed Governor of Tennessee by the Fcderlists,
who said in a letter to Monroe thac he had
been a Federalist, and had opposed Madison
and Madison's Adminlsiration, wasalso sup
ported by his friends. Gen. Jackson was
not the nominee of the Republican conven
tion. - At th's election the State ot Virginia
Voted lor W. II. Crawford. In the House,
lour states voted lor Crawford, and Virginia
was oue of them. Jefferson was apposed to
Gen. Jackson. He said that, 'During his
whole pul.ticul ubs rvation, the disposition
of the Araericau people to elect General
Jackson President, was the single circum
stance which had shaken his faith, and made
him Icar that the American Republic was
soon to follow the fate of all others.'
In JS28, Messrs Madison and Monroe
were chvsen on the Adams Electoral ticket
of Yirg.n'u. Jackson and Adams were the
only candidates fur the Presidency Now
sir, which wac the Republican candidate!
was it tbe Jackson, or Adams pary that
elected Jefferson! Was not the old parties
broken up in 1324, and new parties formed
in 1S2S! Crawford the Republican nomi
nee wus defeated, and J. Q. Adams "-vus
elected by the House. The friends oi Adams,
Jackson, Crawford and Clay, were now or
ganized into two new parties. Mr. Van
liuren s.'.id th'.t all party lines had been
broken up, and new parties formed. Sam
Houston any a, the Ja.ksou party bad to
platforms, tbe Jackson platform, and the,
Calhoun piatfor'y-., that tba Jtcksoa plat
form was popular for a lime, but they have
changed to the Southern or Calhoun plat
form,and that all liberal Democrats have lei:
them. A Democrat lhat will boast that his
party is as old ss the Union, must be either
a knave or a dupe. He boasts ol what he
knows is not so, therefore he is a knave, or,N
what his leaders tell him, by believing it
without knowing, is duped. Rut I say to
all examine for yourselves. We should look
to principles not parties, 'measures not men.'
I am confident that every liberal man, who
wil examine, will agree Jwilh me, that the
present so-called Democratic party, is not
the party that elected Washington, nor Jef
ferson, Madison, and Monroe, and that it
has changed from the liberal Jackson party,
to the Progressive, Despotic, Pro-Slavery
Locofoco Party. If I understand the true
definition of the terms, we should all be
Democrats, Republicans, Federalists and
Americans, to be true- Friends to our Coun

And auotber indictment lor the embezzle
ment of one hundred thousand dollars of
the public money of the Slate.
This morning the Court met at 8 J o'clock.
Mr. Gibson's Atlorncjs moved that he be
admitted to bail, claiming that he was not
really guilty of embezzlement, and the
charge was a technical one. In regard to
the Bonds they said that 'they had been re
turned to the Slate, which fact was admit
ted by the Prosecuting Attorney, and thai
in this case the amount of bail should be
fixed only a such a sum as would secure
his attendance to answer the charge. The
Court fixed the amount of bail on the in
dictment for embezzlement of the bunds at
10,000, and on the other indictment at
100,000, the amount alleged to have been
embezzled.
Mr. Gibson gave as his sureties on the
bonds, Robert G. Pennington, Abel Raw
son, and John D. Loomis, each one of whom
swore in open Court that he was worth at
least $40,000 They acknowledg d them
selves as bail for his appearance on the first
day of the next term of the Court in Octo

FROM THE NORTH-WEST.
Correspondence of the Belmont Chronicle.
MISSISSIPPI RIVER, July 2d, 1857.
Mb. Tboeubk: The never to be trusted
agents ard omnibusses d not get the bet
ter of me this time. A little before the
hour or leaving Milwaukee, in .company
with a very clever gentlemen from La
Crosse, (whose acquaintance I made,) I
started for the station on foot, with .the
quarter in my pocket, and found the way
without difficulty; was soon ff for Prairie-du-Chicn.
By the way, when you ask an
agent or bar-keeper where the station is,
they reply the omnibus will be at the door
in sood time, sir. Now, the quetiion is a
civil one. You do not ask when; the omni
bus will come, for ills sure to come with-
cut asking; eud if you have but two squares
to go, these landlords, agents, and 'buss
men think it very vulgar, to walk; Now; I
think just otherw ise, snd gentlemen aud
ladies would not be caught in them if they
coulj avoid it; ihey are what might fceterm
ed a sometimes necessary nuisance."
A lthougli the cars started at 1 1 o'clock
at night, just eo as by fast running to pie-
vent a sight of Madison, byBQuie hook or
crook" day dawned before w5 arrived adut
ict or the small Lakes, oc avkch it is situ
ated; my friend kindly pointed them out,
also the situation of the town', the principal
buildings, &c. Madison is situated on a
succession of undulations of a ridge around
and among those Lakes; the Railroad is half
a mile or more from the Center of the town.
If Madison is not the prettiest town in the
wor!J, 1 would like to see the one that can
heat it, that's all, and a good deal, too.
reerelted, after passing it, that I bad not
made my arrangements for stopping off until
the next train. After leaving Madison, the
country soon changed from level to a suc
cession of small sand hills and ridges, with
bluffs and some poor sand prairie. We
soon rame to a small stream, sane descrip
tion ot country, and followed it to the Wis
consin River, the poor country still contm
uing, though I sow in some places good
fields of corn. At length, before 9 o'clock
in the morning, the long, loud scream of
the iron horse gave the signal that wewerc
approaching Prairie-du-Cbien ana the Great
Mississippi, of which I had so long wondered
and had scaarcely ever expected to see; both
broke on the vision at once. Where the
cars stopped part of the town was to be
seen, r.nd just on our left, almost on a level
with us. was ringing the bell of the noble
steamer War Eagle; we were soon on board
and bound fur Si. Paul, the end of tbe com
mercial world for a few months to come;
where a new plate, with ten thousand at
tractions and may be a thousand miles off,
will erect its proud head to dispute thesway.
Prairie-du-Chien presents someef idences
of prosperity. There are some new buildings.
I saw tbe Fort from the river, consisting ol
several Ion? two story white buildings,
built, I think, of brick, possibly of stone;
there are several old frame dwellings scat
tered about, which probably some of our
old men would recognize, for I learn that
it has been settled lor two hundred years.
The Missi ssippi, where i first beheld it,
was veiy different from what I had expect
ed. I had fancied a stream with wide bot
toms, a clear deep bed, and a strong current,
the whole t be seen at once from shore to
shore; at this writing I have come fifty
miles up it, it is very high, yet I do not be
lieve 1 have seen at any one time more than
sne fourth of it; it is probably move than a
mile wide, m-j b "v mijV-?-- Thfimpres1
sion it makes on me is that of a succession
of small Lukes, all connected together.
1 he islands are so numerous and the river
so hih lhat the timber appears lo be grow
ing all through it, yet our steamer plows
on, eomctimes through a numerous pass,
and at other.- as wide as Ihe Ohio, but 1
have found out that it is a mighty river,
though running in so many channels around
and am ng the thousands uf islands that lie
in. its bed. So far there are no bottoms,
except at Prairie-du-Chien, and the conflu
euce ol streams. At f rairie-du-Uluen a
large ci'y might be built Along the river
the Muffs from twu to four hundred feet high
come down abruptly to the edge of the
water. These bluffs are in places rocky
and too steep to ascend, at others so they
might be climbed, with a beautiful coat of
grass or other verdure, and the most beauti
ful oak openings. This, I believe, is the
first time I have made mention of oak open
ings. At a little distance they are very
beuutilu', and remind me of apple orchards,
though the tops are not so broad nor bushy;
the trees stand irregular, not so thick as
orchards, and are much pretlier from their
irregularity and bein as nature placed
them All along the river 1 see these open
ings, looking so beautitul, with thousands
aud thousands ot pasturage, yet not a fence
or houre to be seen, lhat seems to have any
connexion whatever with them; there are
at intervals landings and ware-rooms, that
seem only tied to the river. These open
ings look much like farms nearly cleared
free from stumps and undergrowth well set
iu grass, turned out and abandoned. There
will pasturage enough go to waste on the
Mississippi to graze all the sheep in the
Union.
The day is wearing away there is a fine
breeze the passengers are generally on
the guards and hurricane deek; our atten
tion is averted by an object on a bluff four
hundred leet above us. The first impres
sion is lhat it is a man standing erect on a
very high point lhat runs up perpendicular
from the river. Standing srect and looking
wiih great dignity and composure at the
b, at and its contents, a spy-glass is applied;
the result is ai nouueed that it is a woman!
Anxiety mid speculation ran high; all eyes
are turned to the figure, all seem anxious;
there has nut been time to reason from
the height of the biuff, if Goliah had been
standing there he would have looked like a
small buy! There the brown figure still
stood, calm and motionless, nothing daunted
by our gazing. Some one who knew in
formed us that the figure had lately been
raised, and that is twenty feet high.
The evening is delightful, the scenery
continues sublime. In trying to recollect
what has been seen through the day my
mind seems overw helmc I, and I feel in
clined to go lo my room, resigning myscl!
to the cure and protection of the Great
Creator, though the elements of destruction
to uiy mortal frame arc under and around
me. Going into the cabin and silling down
some little matter caused a venerable cler
gyman to ask me a question. He seemed
so calm, gentlemanly, benevolent, and child
like that we toon entered into a long con
versation, and so pleasantly passed the
hours that it wns quite late before we re
tired. He lives in St. Paul, and I hupe nn
the coming Snbb.-.ih I may hear from his
TRAVELLER.
Fire. A terrib e fire broke out on Ihe
12lh, iu the city of Poit au Prince. One
hundred buildings were destroyed,and three
persons burned to death. The loss ofprop
crty is estimated at $1,000,000.
Tub Dead. Up to the 4ih, 243 bodies ol
the persons killed by the burning ot the
Steamer Montreal, had been recovered.

To the Editor of the Chronicle:
Sir: Whilst engaged in reading the last
issue of the Chronicle, my attention was
called to a communication on the subject of
temperance, from one who signs herself
'Hasty.' It appears that a lady has in a
previous paper, taken up the subject, and
has inquired why more is not jcritten in
reference to that topic by the ladies of ihe
county! 'Hasty' has followed her with a
sound and creditable communication, bold!y
declaring herself bv it, to be a favorer of
temperance. The question has been asked,
and perhaps many females who read it an
swered in their own minds; we were wait
ing for some one to begin the work. One
has at last started the wheel, and another
has completed the second revolution; vvjio
will b; bold enough to step forward and as
sist in the accomplishment of a great enter
prise! Yes; 'lis true, you are the chief suf
ferers; you have a ponderous load to sustain,
and truly it becomes your duty to endeavor
10 throw off the curse and be freed from its
despotism. It becomes your duty to exert
yourselves lo suppress the evil; nut being
engaged in it, but witnessing from time to
time, its dreadful, and immoralizing effects
upon our citizens and relatives.brothers and
parents, if you should deal more openly and
forcibly against Ihe manufacture and use of
ardent spirits.the results fcrthe better could
hardly be imagined ,ond more agreeably wit
nessed. Many young men, who might be
honors to their country, may be led down
the stream of shame and disnonor by alco
holic druiks, but can be saved by woman's
instrumentality if she would but use her in
fluence in favor of bis salvation. A number
who havealready been led astray,and ruined
by the intoxicating bowl, could testify, if it
were iu their will so to do.that had (he ladies
used their influence against the tralic, and
with unwearied diligence, endeavored lo
overthrow the evil they might have been
saved from degradation and ruin.
v oman has a powerful influence over the
mind of uian.and he will generally endeavor
to carry out her principles, if he be in the
leust attached to her. Go on then ludies!
level your batteries, first against the mosi
influential men, who favor the manufacture
and use of liquors, and dant ccaso until you
lorce them to yield, lay down their arms and
fight against the good of their fellow beings
no mure; then against every other power
thai is arrayed iu its favor, bring forward
your lorces, strong and mighty, nor cease
until not a single vista shall be loll stand
ing as a symbol of the mighty yet damning
fabric. Keep the wheel moving lurward
until glorious success crowns your efforts,
Ihen in the judgement will thousands rise

Next House of Representatives.
The U. S. House of Representatives now
contains 78 Democrats and 93 anti- Demo
crats, being an anti-Democratic majority of
15. There are 63 members yet to be elec
ted. Should all the districts yet to elect go
as they did two years since, there will be
121 Democrats in the House, and 113 mem
bers of the opposition, or a Democratic ma
jority of eight. It is probable that the ma
jority of the Administration will be about
that figure, h can be made larger only by
defeat of the American party in six of the
nine Southern States in which elections are
yet to be held. In three of the nine'States
the Americans had no members of the last
House, and should Ihey gain any there, it
will be clear gain. If they should hold
their own in the other six.it will be as much
as can be expected, under the reign of ter
ror that now prevails for the benefit of those
'driven niggers,' the Democracy. Eight.ten,
or twelve will be but a email majority for the
Administration to work "vith, in view of the
quarrels that are coming upon its supporters
about spoils and slavery. It would be quite
large enough perhaps better than one of
eighty would be-if the party were thorough
ly united; but as it is not united.and as the
difficulties that beset it scarely admit of
compromise, such a majority cannot be con
sidered one of a reliable character.
It will not, for instance, be found strong
enough to admit Kansas as a slave-holding
State, or to pass any other slave holding
act through Congress. The repeal of the
Missouri Compromise was forced through
the House of Representatives by only 13
majority, though the Democratic there was
six or eight times as great as it is likely to
be in the House that is to meet in Decem
ber next.
There could have been no Democratic
majority kin the House, had it not been for
the stupidity of some portion of the opposi
tioh. They lost to members in Connec
ticut, and at least as many more in New
York, that they should have had. Had these
been kcpt,the Mouse would have been 'tied,'
so that the Democrats could have done no
mischief. The wolves would have been
muzzled. Bit other members were lost
through the follies of the opposition, which
are the chief sources of Democratic success,
giving them not only the Presidency, but a
majority in Ihe popular branch of the Na
tional Legislature, though the majority
against them in the popular vote is more
than the third of a million! But there are
some people at whom fortune throws her
favors only to break their heads,and so prec
ious soft are those heads. It is some conso
lation, on looking over the list of members
already elected, to see that the majority
against the Democrats in the tree State
delegajioos is thirty-nine, and that there
not a single pro-slavery Democrat elected
from the Democratic States of Maine, New
Hamoshire, Iowa, Missouri and Michigan
allol which States supported General Cass
u 1S4S.
Locofoco Stealings.
Exasperated at the unfairness and mean
ness of the Slave Democracy press, in at
tempting to throw ihe responsibility oftli
enormous defalcation in the State Treasury
from the shoulders of their own party .where
it has been unmistakably fixed, and charge
it upon the Republicans, ihe Ohio Stale
Journal indulges in the fo'loimg truthfu
train of reileclio ns on the subject:
"We can show where Governor Medill
has paid men for personal services to him
self and party out of the public treasury
We can show where locofoce papers in t iis
cily liavo been printed n State ptper;whi!i.-
the military arms of the. Stale have been
sold by locofoco officials, in one instance to
the amount of sixteen hundred dollars, aud
the money never paid into the treasury
We on show how the people's money was
tnksn l-y the handful to ehrich corrupt con
tractors of tl.e S:ate House and Lunatic As
ylums, and how men who haJ charge of the
Ohio Peniteutiary abstracted the public mo
neys in a manner that would have disgraced
st:me of the convicts over whom they had
charge. Many of these lacts stand record
cd on the imperishable records of the'Gener
al Assembly, and the others, we believe.are
susceptible of being proved by indisputable
testimony before any court of justice.
"We commend the gentry who are now
trying to blacken the fair name of one of
the nohlest men that the people of Ohio ev
er honored with their confidence, to husband
their resources, and not to presume any fur
ther upoi the forbearance of their oppon
ents. The men who are now endeavoring
to turn the current of public indignation
from its proper channel into directions de
vious and winding Mint they may escape
from the consequences of their own acts.and
thus screen the guilty and wroug the inno
cent, know 'ull wil the hue of the cata
logue which is written agaiust them, and
is ocly the common trick of the detected
criminal who hopes to escape by joining the
hue and cry of stop thief, which they are at
tempting to palm off upon tbe public.
Shooting Fugitives on the Fourth.
[Correspondence of the Chicago Tribune.
NASHVILLE, Washington County Ill.,
July 4th, 1857.
The citizens of th s place have just been
engaged in celebrating this anniversary of
our independence, by holding an inquest
over the body of a fugitive slave, who was
shot last night in the vicinity.
It was reported in town yesterday that
t iree runaway slaves were in the neighbor
hood, and last night a large crowd started in
search of them. A Iter scoutinff the country
for -everal hours in vain, most of the crowd
returned, but a detached party of some half
dozen, in returning, met with the unfortu
nate fugitives in the road, some two miles
east ot town, and ordered them to surrend
er. The evidence before the jury on the in
diclmnet was, that one of the negioes made
fight wit h a pistol in each hand, and was
shot by one of the party in self-defense. But
the -round showed that he was lut while
running, for a gentleman who had examined
the wouud,told me lhat the hole made by the
bullet was much larger behind than before
He as shot through t ie It wer per. o'' thr ab
domen, aid died in about an hour and a half
after. The other two fugitives made their
escape, though they were fired upon as they
ran, and it is 'bought by the party that one
of them was wounded.
OCT'Gov. Walker of Kansas, without the
ability to ta kc a single step towards the res
toration ol power to the people of Kansas,
has merely expressed the opinion that thp
pro-slavery ruffians ought to let the people
vote on their Constitution, and the southern
democratic press denounces him in such
