, JU3-ln the list Fn 7Yss, of dune
7th, II. 0. Clapp Simply repeats a few of
hU false statistics, moot of which we have
hcretufor: shown to 1m false; but he dare
not attempt to vindicate himself from the
rhare of "swindling the county in his
oQVud capacity" in IS.":;, which we have
k abundantly proved against him. II is
last effort may, with propriety be termed a
lizzie;" for it is only a stale repetition of
htatements, most of which we have shown
to be false, without even an attempt on
his part to invalidate our contradiction of
them.
He asks "why the Treasurer received
?2J5,o(' ni. ro for the years K.", Wi and
'.37, than Mr. Hriggs did for the three
years previous to lsO"?"
And again he says :
"The Fditor of the Northerner and
Pdaikman hnous that in l$;"t and lo7
the Treasurer received a salary of SMO
besides $lT),r:0 extra which was paid for
htationary, etc , and that Mr. Ihiggs for
the (his) two last years received a salary
of .0O and furnished his own wood and
stationary."
In (he above- quotation there arc- al
lanot as many falsehoods as there are
distinct alii i motions.
Jn the iirst place I ho Treasurer did not
receive 8225, more for 1S.V, "l and 'f7,
than Mr. Ihigg did for the three years
proious to 1835. lu order to make that
Rowing Mr. Clapp included in the first
ease all that was allowed for blank boohs
binding tax lists and returns, express
charges and postage on blanks, etc, ree'd.
form Auditor General and vnt to town
officers, etc., etc. And, although the
same hind of charges were allowed to 31 r.
riggs, a . Mr. Clapp veil kiiou:, yet he
has excluded Mich allowances from the
amount which he says Mrlk received,
and .stated his bare salary.
Again it is f.dse, that the Treasurer
received a ralry of r000 for lO.Vj and
'ol.
Fur ISo.") the Treasurer received .1 sal
ary of -SoOU, for three mirths of the year
1S.' he ree'd. at the rate of $UM. per
annum, and fer the balance of and
1 JS57 at the rate uf $"o .). The " Kxtra"

Vff 7Vt and its eo-adjutors ought to be
the last ones to reproach thorn.
One other question Mr. Chpp pro
pounds, viz : " Why has 1,1 -T) more been
expended Tor the years 1 .", r' an J "7
than for the three years previous to 18o.r '!"
We answer that Mr. Clapp has not shown
a particle of proof that euch was the ease,
1 or that there is any more truth in that
statement than in the others which ho has
made, and which we have .shown to be so
utterly devoid of truth. Mr. Clapp might
as Well discontinue his rclUratlon of those
tatements that we have shown to be false
afid deceptive, unless he can produce some
evidence to refute what ve have stated.
As we have before said, so we pay again,
that if any reliable ami candid man of the
Democratic party will call on the under
signed we will pmrc to him, from the
Records, beyond a doubt, that every state
ment of 11. C. Clapp, to which we have
alluded is just as fraudulent and false as
we have represented. And that the char
ges which we have waila against him of
defrauding the county are literally true.

From tho Fort Smith Tissie Fxtra, April 11.
Col. A. McKissick, agent for the "WitcK
ita Indians, and Woods 1 llogers, of the
Albuuerue expedition, arrived to-day,
and we learn from them, that in eouse
quenco of the hostlities of the wild Indi
ans, and ldviecs of friendly Indians, the
company for Albuquerque reluctantly aban
doned the expedition.
Jessie Chishohn, a half-blood Cherokee,
who has been trading with the Caman
ehes for twenty years, started a few weeks
ago with goods on a trading expedition to
the Camuueho Nation, and after traveling
.several days, was met by a company id'
triendly Indians who had hern to the
pi. ice where all the wild tribes had assem
bled, and had a talk with them, and they
advised him to return immediately, which
he did, as the wild Indians were wry
hostiie.

The Mayor's forces are yet unorganized
and all remains uiet. i reat preparations
are being mado by both partus The
forces of the Vigilance Committee are
under command of Major. J. K. Duncan,
late of the United Suites, Army, and are
well organized and drilled. A crieis is
expected to day. m t m
The city papers are divided in opinion,
The Picayune and I'ree.cut being in favor
of the city, and The True Delta and Delhi
in-favor Jt'the Vigilance Committee, while
the rent are neutral.
H) (U The excitement is increas
inir. The Mayor has issued orders to ar
rest John Maginnis, of The True Delta,
and the opponents of the Committo.; de
clared that if be is taken they will hang
him. Magiuuis takes it coolly.
AWt.--Tho Vigilance Committee offer
ed to resign provided the City will vest
the Police authority in their hands,
which the City refused to do. If the
Committee succeeded, (ierald Stith's Na
tive American party will lo killed. The
Vigilance is nevertheless composed of men
of all parties.
A rumor is current on the streets that a
compromise has been affected ; that the
city authorities will deliver up twenty-live
noted rullians to the Vigilance Committee
and that live hundred men on each side
will be sworn as Police. I have been re
fused admittance to the City Hall and
cannot vouch for the reliability of there
port. 1 p. uk Fifty men with two cannons
have jupt taken possession uf Canal street.
They are said to be marked by the Vigi

tratisiiire l.-efore the hohllrg of the next
strcnth of the .supporters of the Adininis

unworthy of observation. The strength
of the Administration in Michigan is
based simply upon its patronage. It has

fact, disguise it as they may by "popular
demonstrations ' or the exultant tone of
a venal j n s;. On the other hand the re
cent course of Senator Stuart has been
eminently popular, and especially so with
the sincere and genuine advocates of pop
ular sovereignty. Hence we say, that if
Senator Stuart carries out. the policy as
above indicated, it will present more of
the characteristics of tin; triumphal march
of a conqueror, that of the self-vindications
of a politician. A'. Ti l.

tenor of the pamphlet, which is kept a
strict secret from the public and is printed
for private distribution only, may be judg
ed, when addressed to the Kmperor, it
opens thus: Let jour Majesty remem
ber that the event of your imperial Majes
ty's reign is yet to come. No Austarlitz,
no Leipsie, no army, and with a navy
which now stands first in l.urcpe, your
.Majesty might accomplish deeds far more
brilliant than these. F.ven the pallid
reign of Charles the Tenth has left Alge
ria as a legacy of glory to the nation
even the short-lived republic has left us
the occupation of Home by our victorious
troops. Let, then, the conquest of Fng
land be the one immortal feat of arms
which fhall render your Majesty's reign
even more glorious than that of N'apohon
the First, whoso fate it would so nobly

We have just received news of the hor
rible murder of eleven men in Kansas
who were shot down in cold blood by a
party of rullians. The party of murderers
consisted of twenty-fivo men, eight of
them lived in Kansas and seventeen in1
Missouri, most of them in the vicinity of
West Tuint, just over the border, which ,
has been the seat of a lllue Lodge, and
which was formerly the rendezvous of the
invading army led by (Jen. Clark. The
leaders of the party were llroekttt ami
Hamilton, who have had a prominent irt
in all the Dorder-KufJian violence of
Southern Kansas, and the latter of whom
was one of liuford's meu. On the morn
ing of the l!)th of May this party made
their appearance at thc&tore of Mr. Camp
bell at the Trading-I'ost on tho military
road from Fort Scott to Fort Leavenworth,

lifty miles north of Fort Scott, and there

prisoner, and then proceeded along the
road for two miles and a half north, till
they had taken twelve in all. These men
were taken when at their" work, unarmed,
and without resistance. They had not
been implicated in any of the troubles of
Kansas, and some of them were recent im
migrants. The only resistance encoun
tered appears to have been from a black
smith, who refused to be taken prisoner,
lired upou the lluftians, killed lirockett's
horse, slightly wounded the rider, and ef
fected his escape. The prisoners being
taken into a deep ravine in a skirt of tim
ber, were there ordered to form into line,
which was the first intimation of the fate
that awaited them. The command was
then given, Kcady ! Aim! Fire! when
the horsemen discharged their mu.kets.

tance of live paces, and the whole twelve
prisoners fell to tho ground. Four were
dead and seven others wounded, one of
whom was afterward killed by the ruflfnus.
Only one escaped unhurt. Tho murder
ers, after rifling the pockets of their vic

The man who was unhurt then ran back
and gave the alarm. The news ol course

they were very ill-provided with .arms.

Denver, in pursuit of Montgomery, had
returned and reports that became up with
that person, ami upon showing his author
ity to capture him, he was himself taken
prisoner by Montgomery, ou Thursday
night last, but treated with every respect.
Montgomery informed him (the Marshal)
that all the depredations had been com
mitted by Hamilton, who was at the heal
of the remnant of the gang of robbers
formerly under the command of Uuford,
and who have been prowling through tin'
Territory and in Missouri, ever since the
invasion of Kansas by the Georgians and
South Carolinians under Uuford, Wilkes,
and other Southern leaders.
Hamilton, after the commission of the
recent horrible murders, had tied from the
Territory, and was understood to be u
route lor Georgia. It is supposed Gover
nor Denver will offer a reward for his ap
prehension, and that if he can be found,
proper steps will be taken to bring him to
justice.

There appears to be nothing definite
about the news from Salt Lake about the
Governor being driven out. A gentleman
at Leavenworth, who read all the letters
from Camp Scott, up to May (Hh, says no
mention is made in them of it. At that
time nothing was known thereof what was
going on at Salt Lake there being, inf.
fortinately, a row between the Governor
and Gin. Johnston, and no official inter
course between them. The letters state
that Johnston would march to Salt Lake
the last of May so the army is doubtless
there now. It is quite certain, however,
that dispatches from Gov. dimming to
Secre'ary Cass have come through, which
arri vel at ('amp Scott subsequent to May
tth, with instruetbns to put them through
with all speed, and that the two Mormons
who brought thorn reported the driving
out of the Governor. We are Inclined to
think that the dispatches front Gov. Cuni
ming Mill in Great Salt Lake City are
the result of consultations between Gov.
dimming and IJtighani Young. Wc shall
soon .see how this is. It all may be a re
port started at Leavenworth, to help pass
the appropii.itiou bill through Congress.

A lorn' debate ensued, which
terminated in a majority oi nine again.' t
the resolutions and in favor of the Govern

Commons by Mr. Cardwell; but here, as
most people articipatcd, the debate had to
be adjourned. It would be resumed on
the ensuing Monday, when, in all proba
bility, a vote would be taken In connec
tion with this subject, it is to be observed
that an address delivered by Mr. Layard,
recently returned from India, has probably
influenced some votes. Mr. Layard gives
much valuable information upon affairs in
Hindustan. He thinks that misgovor::
ment and more particularly the recent n
noxation of Oude, were immediate causes
of an outbivak which he speaks of as a
rebellion of the native population, stated
with the deliberate purpose of extermina
ting the dominant race. An article from
the London Times on the Atlantic Tele
graph enterprise and its successful prose

ting subject. The news from other parts
of Furope by this arrival is not of an im
