MJj-t HISTORY OK THE REVOLT,
To-day w>> give a full history of the
recent revolt in Jamaica. We have al
ready shown that the whirlwind was
sown by a Doctor Underbill. This par
tisan got up public meetings in every
direction of tlie country, ut which all
mannc. of wild talkings jihoul "oppres
sions" and "wrongs" were indulged
in and strong resolutions passed, in
i which they sought to endorse the state
ments of their apostle in his letter totho
C. lonial Secretary. Then "Underbill
conventions" became formed, and—as
has conic out since the rebellion—a se
cret society entitled the African Libera
tion Society. We nuote the following
from the Jamaica Stautlurd :
One of the prime movers in all these]
Ihiligs was Mr. George Willi am Gordon,
a huge landed proprietor, and a member
of the lower branch of the legislature of
the country. Mr. Gordon, in wild, in-I
temperate, senseless y.eal, traveled from
one part of the country lo the other,
beating up the forces 'of the Underbill
p-Tty, muum li.vully iir.acl.inn m> the ilm- l
trlnesthal Dr. Underbill had enunciated
to the Secretary of State. The press
warned him that he was pursuing ■
course that was fraught with danger,
that could be productive of nothing but
evil. P.ut lie still, held on his mad and
unwise course until, going on from folly
to crime, he preached sedition.
A-a member of the Legislature this
man represented the parish of St.
Thomas in the East in the Assembly.
His influence among the lower classes
of lhat parish was unhappily very great.
lv that palish the sect of native Bap
lists abound, Gorgon gave great en
counit'eineiit to these people. He had
1 himself recently become a Baptist, by
which his Influence among them became
more firmly established He preached
It. Ibein, and had several chapels .which
seemed to have been placed under the
special charge of a black American by
the name of Warner—an uneducated,
unprincipledehanieler— with whom was
associated a notorious savage, brutal,
bloodthirsty wretch, by name Paul
Bogle, who' resided in the neighborhood
of a dark glen called Stony Gut. This
was Bogle's headquarters; here he had
a chapel, here Ihe most terrible scenes
ofithe revolt were enacted.
Kqnm Information thai has since come
to possession of (he government it
ould appear that as early as IBM a*so
ations bad been formed at St Thomas
n tbe East, at the instigation and direc
ion of William Gram, a saddler at
orant Bay, and that among the prin
pal officers holding various ranks,
•anl Bogle appears to have been the
lief, (he proprietor and officiating min
er of a certain negro chapel al Stony
nt, where the meetings were held, and
lii.'h pIaCC Was ultimately fortified a*
garrison for the insurgents who eon
legated there. For the sake of brev
y we give these rebels' names and
Dees in a compact form:
Commander-in-Chief— Paul Bogle, of
tony Gut negro chapel, a Baptist
Captain General—Bule, Morani Hay,
Baptist preacher. ;
Secretary— George Craddock. [
Assistant Secretary—Win. McLaren.
Captains—William Grant, saddler;
lose-; Bogle, Duncan Stewart, George
larke, Paul Bogle's son-in-law j Geo,
lelntosli, carpenter; William Cbiaolm
Ringleaders— William Wind, David
'opelaiui, James McLaren, Baptist
readier; James Mitchell, London
lissiouary Sociely's teacher ; Thomas
ValUer, Charles Flemings, I.eith Hall
state; Lewis Stewart, Thomas Taylor,
. allies Walkel and Jack Diley.
From every one who became a mem- >
ber of this secret society an oath was
ttorted as to a promise of secrecy and
i combination with them, under puin
if immediate death.
OlTlllll'AK Of THE INSURRECTION.
On Salurda,. , the Ttb of October, 1805,
Court of Petty Sessions was held at
lorant Bay. While (hebiisint'ss of the
ourt was being proceeded with a great
loisc arose in the court house, which
Dcreased to such a pitch as to compel a
emporary suspension of the proceed
ngs. Tin; justices ordered the party
nuking tlie disturbance to be brought
iil'ore them, upon which one Charles
ieogbegan in head rioter) lefl (he Court
House, followed by the police, who cap
tirid him on the steps. He was imme
diately rescued hv one Paul Bogle and
several other persons, who had large
tludgeons in their hands, and taken
into the Market sqoaw, where someone

severely beaten, and bad to retire to tbe
Court House wit bout their prisoner.
On Momlay, the Court of Petty Sessions

busiueSK, a man named Lewis Dick was
tried for trespass. As soon as the case

did not return until tho following day,

What had taken place ot the exeeu

to the Custos, Haron yon Kelelliodt,
who had just returned to the parish,
The police further stated that the peo

y Qui, and that when they left
i were over six hundred persons
i-arms; that shells were blowing

iiifil the people intended coming lo
tnt Hay on the following day, Wed
ny. On this information the Cus
tos sent off to the volunteers at Bath,
and also an express* to the Governor re
qttMtlng that troops might be dispatched
without delay, as he feared a re hellion on
Bio following day. The despatch was
H received hy tlie Governor until
ght o'clock Wednesday. On Wednes
day the vestry met and proceeded with
their business. About four o'clock P.
M. drums were heard, ami after this the
rebels made their appearauce. Tlie vol
unteers were drawn up in line before
the court house, eighteen in number.
Tlie Custos, who stood on the steps, ex
horted the people, some six hundred,
armed with deadly weapons, not to
enter the square, and staled that if they
had any grievances to complain of to
say so, and it should receive redress.
They, however, persisted in coming
into tlie square, upon which the Custos
lead the Riot act. By this time the
mob had come within a few yards of the
volunteers, firing a volley of stones at
Ihe volunteers. Captain Hitehin.. then
gave orders to lire. The most murder
ous attacks were then made on every
one coming in reach of the'rchels. The
volunteers tieing averpowered took re
fuge in the court house, where the
Custos, magistracy, clergy and other
gentlemen were. Finding that these
parties had taken shelter, they smashed
the windows to atoms, firing continu
ully into, the court house,.when the
volunteers returned their nre, Ootng
ATTEMrTS AT PACIFICATION.
About half-past live o'clock the court
house was fired. The Custos then put
out a Hag of truce by advice of the Clerk
of the Peace. The rioters asked what it
meant, and were answered peace. They
said they did not want peace, they want
ed war. A second flag of truce was put
out, with no better eii'eet, the rebels
crying out war, war! On the roof of the
court house falling in through the fire
that had been set to the premises, the
Custos and other gentlemen hurst open
the doors and ran down the steps, the
rebels attacking them in every direc
THE FIRST MURDERS.
A cry was raised that the steamer was
in sight, and eager eyes were turned to
wards the place where she was supposed
to be, but only to be averted again in
disappointment. Mr. Arthur Cooke and
Mr. Walton, who attempted to escape
through a window, were both killed;
all the rest took refuge in the house at
the fort, when it was ascertained that
several volunteers had fallen. The late
Custos then asked if any one would go
out and speak to the mob. None ven
tured to do so; and while they were
consulting, the roof was discovered to be
on lire. At the suggestion of the Rev.
Mr. Herschel a prayer was being offer
ed, when shots came pouring in through
the window, which caught his Honor
tho Ouslos, a child of Mr. Inspector Al
berga and the Hon. Mr. Georges. Mr.
Herschel then bandaged the wound of
Mr. Georges with his clerical neck-tic ;
the burning roof fell in, and the inmates
were compelled to rush out. Mr. Jilc-
Corniiick WM chopped to pieces on one
of Ihe guns at the steps of the court
II.RON KETEI.IIDLIIT AND HIS COMPANION..
The Custos was armed with a sword
which he took up. Each endeavored to
save himself. The mob cried, "Now we
have the Baron; kill him," and loud
shouls announced that the deed had
been done. Dr. Gerard was then called
to come out, the mob protesting that they'
would save him. Mr. Mcl'lierson and
another concealed themselves, hut were
soon discovered and assaulted. Mr.
Mcpherson, C. V., is since dead. The
Eirtunate victims were then killed in

away and cut down. Captain Hitehins,
who hail behaved wilh undaunted
bravery, was seriously wounded at last,
and faint with the loss of blood, threw
his arms round Dr. Gerard's neck, and
was despatched in that position.
lAfterI After Mr. Alberga was butchered, the
ob were about to murder his already
minded child, when some woman iu
rfered and saved the poor iuiiocent.
Mr. C. A. Price was murdered almost at
the same time with Mr. Alberga, not
withstanding the efforts made by one
William Donaldson to save him. This
man, we must observe, deserves tlie
! praise for the superhuman

ay would write no more lies to

IN INCIDENT OF TITE MASSACRE,
art, who struck a fatal blow at
te lamented Mr. Hitehins, went
ards to Bath, where that gentle
lady resided, and accosted her
"Are you Mrs. Hitehins?" On
of both her shoulders, aud ehaking he
rudely, added, " Well, I killed you
husband, and I am come lo ask you I
forgive me. Do you forgive inn.'
" Yes, 1 do," the gasped with an ag.
iiizinir look at her poor infant, who wu
near by within reacli of the rattan'
grasp. '" You lie!" he replied, sliakiu
her with more violence than before
"go dowji on your knees and tell i
me." Apprehension for her child van
quished Ihe repugnance she fell at th
mere sight of Ihe heartless inurtlcrei
What she would have suH'cred dead
fur, rather than consent to on any othe
occasion, she tlid for the sake of th.
little innocent. .Sinking to the nbjec
position he ordered, the poof lady re
pealed, " I forgive yoil ;as liod is nil
judge, I do; but save my poor child
whose father you have killed!" Hub
doubtful, Stewart looked once more at
the ].rostrate form before hiiu. Hh
fingers clutched, as if ready to teartheii
prey ; his features lowered with an ex
pression of savage hate, at tho sight ol
which the widow mother's heart was
ready to sink within her; but, struck
apparently by some after-thought, he
bid Iter rise and go away with herchild,
adding, with a significant look after
them as they left, " If I could only be
lieve you did not forgive me, I would
kill you both!" A very short time after
this occurrence Stewart was taken, and
received the traitor's doom on the
At Duckeiifield estate the rebels de
stroyed the great house and barracks
with bludgeons and cutlasses. Sonic of
them set fire to the rum store, but the
Haines were speedily extinguished hy
ot hers, who stated they must on no ac
count fire the works or buildings of any
estate, as they would be required by
and by. All the liquor found was forth
with imbibed or taken away—the very
beds arid mattresses be_hg cut and torn
to pieces, so as to render them of no
value thereafter. Proceeding thence to
Amity Hall Estate's works, the rebels
went through the same routine of de
predation and destruction. With fiend
ish yells and shouts n>~y ....__-_, -_r *•_
.\vc g.fiii nouse, vowing vengeance ou
Mr. Augustus Hire. The nearer they
approached the house the louder became
their savage cries. On entering (In
dwelling they were met by Stipendiary
Justice Thomas Witter Jackson, who,
after addrcssinga few words to them,
was ordered to hold his tongue. He was
immediately cruelly beaten and left by
the cowardly scoundrels for dead. The
next victim was a worthy old gentle
man named Crichton, on whom they
perpetrated great cruelties, leaving him
in a like condition as that of Mr. Jack
son. Mr. Hire and ids son next fell
under tlie clutches of these demons;
both were beuten and chopped merci
lessly, to tho satisfaction of their relent
less assailants. Then commenced the
pillage of the shires; after which, re
turning to the house, the rebels found
Mr. Jackson had been placed in a bed In
which Dr. Crowdy was also lying dan
gerously ill. With another yell they at
once set fire to the bed, with the view of
burning Mr. Jackson alive; but ere the
riamcshad gained way they were quickly
extinguished, as the rebels stated they
must save tbe doctor, life, he having
sworn to he on their side, and not to
dress the wounds of any white man.
With renewed shouting they then pro
posed to go on to Holland estate, but
this was overraletl by the majority, who
exclaimed "No, Hordley is nearer, and
we saw a lot of Ihe damned Scotchmen
there as we passed at dusk, as well as
Mrs. Shortridge and her children, and
as we cannot find Shortridge we must
murder his wife and children and get
rid of the breed." Some fifty of the
Hordley people, with faithful, hunviue I
and honest hearts, met them at Ihe foot
of the hill, staling they would not per
mit them to come to the estate. They
thereupon told the Hordley men, some I
of whom instantly brought the in forma- I
tion to Mr. Harrison that if he would I
give up Mrs. Shortridge and her Children
they would not proceed further. It need I
hardly be added the monstrous proposal
was declined. During this parley several
of the Hordley men rushed back to the
| great house, taking Mrs. Harrison, Mrs.
Shortridge, tlie children 'and the several
ladies to different places of safely, where
they concealed them, at the same time
secreting all the other refugees. They
then returned to the rebels ami accom
panied them to Hordley, apparently
taking great interest in ferreting out
their wished for vic'.ims, but in truth
taking them in every direction save
that where the ladies and children were
secreted. The rebels perpetrated ascene
of j illage similar to tliat pursued at oilier
places, and emptying the stores. The
door ol" the room which contained those
at Hordley was defended by a l.ravennd
noble African, named James Dulfus, I
who sank at his post only after he had t
received a cutlass wound on his arm,
which disabled him.
HELP AT HAND.
Thus closed the second day's work of
the rebels, who appeared to be done up 1
with excitemeut and exhaustion, as
little noise was made by them; besides I
they knew somethiug capable of redue- I
ing them to soberness: some of their I
number engaged iv plundering Bow- I
den's house had heen disturbed hy a I
couple of shells from a thirty-two pound- I
eron board the gunboat Onyx, exploding 1
among them anil killing several.
Saturday morning called the rascals,
men and women, to a reckoning they I
did not anticipate. Troops were landed
at Bowden, one party of whom inarched j
towards Golden Grove, while the rest j
took the road through Bath, meeting at

The bitterness of disappointment was
too visible in the countenances ol the j
negroes on Saturday morning, as the I
military reached Colden Grove and at

there. A report was prevalent among
the people that the military would aide
with them, but they soon d'scovere
their fatal mistake. The rebels were
surrounded and either made

Sib-I have the honor to bring to tho
knowledge of your Excellency that I
matched at half-past eleven last night
for the rebel stronghold "Stony Gut."
About daylight this morning, in pass

(Where Ibe rebels bad destroyed every
thing) 1 found a Dumber of Hpecial con
stables who had captured a number of
prisoners from the rebel camp. Finding
their guilt clear, and being unable to
either lake or leave them, 1 had them
I have Paul Bogie's valet for my guide,
a little fellow ot* extraordinary intelli

and a revolver now and then to his
head, cause iih thoroughly to understand

rebel in the island by name and face,

colonels ami secretaries out of an im

name of Arthur Wellington, Is among
them, and three others.
Martial law having been proclaimed
throughout (he county of Surry (Kings
ton excepted), courts martial were
speedily assembled for the trial of all tbe
B>ls apprehended. Their sittings

n Tuesday, the 17th of October, a
y of armed policemen, escorted by
the Kingston Volunteer troop, proceed
ed to the wharf premises occupied by
Mr. Oeorge William Gordon. Tho
premises were quickly surrounded and
(breed open, when a coolie servant of
Mr. Gordon was taken up, and the pa
pers and document! seized. Mr. Gor
don was not found there. The Clerk of
tbe Peace, accompanied by a proper
force of officers, went on to Cherry
(jiurdcu, where also another ineffectual
search was made. A guard being left
at Churry Garden, the Clerk of the
Peace proceeded to Headquarters
j House, in this city, where Mr. Cordon
| was brought in anil surrendered to the
o_u«u '21_t of Oc.tol._r he was convict
ed, and on the 23d inst., he was hanged.
On the fatal morning the prisoner rose
early, and asked tor a basin of water to
bathe his face and hands, which was
given to him by order of the Provost
Marshal. While bathing himself he
said, "Should my life be spared 1 shall
never again meJdle with polilics." A
3iip of tea was then given him, which he'
drank. It was evident, up to that time,
that the wretched man had no idea of
his earthly career coming so near a
close. Shortly after his tea, his doom
was announced to him, the effect of
which was forcibly apparent on his pale
and emaciated countenance. He then
asked for half an hour, which was grant
ed to him, and which he employed in
readingacouple of chapters in the Bible
and writing a short note to his wife.
After doing so he was marched under a
strong guard of the Sixth Royal regi
ment to the place of execution. With
an apparently firm step, but a sorely
troubled mind— if the face is an index of
the same be mounted the ladder placed
beneath, the centie arch of Ihe burnt
court house—the rope hanging from the
same—and stood ou the barrel' prepared
as a trap board. Standing thereon, gaz
ing beneath him on the loyal hearts as
sembled, as well as the prisoners paraded
to witness the doom he so justly merited,
and on eighteen of his brothers in crime
who were hanging below. On his arms
and legs being held to be pinioned he
handed his spectacles to a sailor of the
Wolverine. The Provost Marshal then
uttered the wonls, " Sentenced to be
hanged;" the order was given, "Pull
away," and (lie traitor was launched
into eternity. Thus perished George
William (.'onion, member of the Assem
bly and ex-magistrate, a victim of tha
seditious doctrines he ltad himself so
freely disseminated. He struggled fully
This notorious rebel was brought into
Moftnt Bay about eleven o'clock on
the Tuesday following Oeorge William
Gordon's execution. He came in es
corted by a large body of Maroons. The
greatest excitement prevailed in Morant
Bay when it was positively ascertained
that tlie monster hud really fallen into
our hands anil was soon to meet the
punishment he so justly merited. In
appearance he was n mraii between forty
live an.l fifty years old, black, With
thick, heavy, reddish lips, blurred eyes
and very much pitted with small-pox.
His sullen countenance and dogged
manner bespoke him a man capable of
committing all the atrocities withwhich
he was charged. At about one o'clock
of tlie same day ho was placed on bia
trial, and entered into no defence what
ever, except a few questions iv tlie form
of cross examination.
Moses Bogle, Paul's brother, waa
placed along with him for trial, and
portrayed the same sullen and dogged
appearance. He was severely wounded
oy a brown man named Bothwell, who
captured him, and who also received a
severe wound on the right arm. Mosea
Bogle was what is generally termed s .
yellow negro, taller and stouter than
Paul, with large, heavy whiskers.
Old Buie, tbe captain general of tho
rebel forces, was also tried and con
demned on tlie same day. He was a
man, we should suppose, bordering on
sixty-live years of age, short, thin and
remarkable in his appearance from the
may beard which he wore. On the
same day lhe»B three rebels-the princi
pal ringleaders in the massacre-were,
executed at five o'clock, I. M„ on tl a

Too much cannot be said in the praise
of this valuable body of auxiliaries to

as it was known that the government
equired their services one and all vol

us that assistance which we so much
needed as regards l.usbranging, aservice
that would have proved peculiarly ha
rassing to the military forces of tho
country. Completely covered with green
bushes, they lie concealed until tlie roe
is within their grasp, w hen, with the
spring of a tiger, they hound forward,
and never fail iv their capture.
