FOR PRESIDENT:
ZACIIAHY TAYLOIl.
CITY OP EVANSVILLE:
TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 88, 184 T.
CCjpWe were not present at the meeting
last night and do not therefore know what was
done. We suppose the Secretary will report.
CO" Several of our citizens have enquired
of us what amount of Stock our citizens are ex
acted to take in the Telegraph to secure an
office at this point. We cannot answer the
question, but Mr. O'Reilly will be in this place
one day this week, and then no doubt we shall
learn all the particulars. We cannot think
the amount of stock required of us will be very
large, but whatever it is we hope it will be
subscribed. Our merchants and business men
have commenced to build up a city, and they
will not of course be frightened off by trifles.
The Telegraph of itself may not increase our
population 100 per cent, in a year, but it will
do its share towards it; and we must take the
chances as they are offered.
CCf Messrs. Foster & Jonhson are open
ing their stock of fall and winter goods, which,
judging from a hasty glance we were able to
get at their establishment on yesterday, we
thould say is large and well assorted for this
market. These gentlemen are old merchants
and well known to the back counties, and,
what is gratifying to them and their friends,
highly esteemed in their business by the trad
ing community. Those who want cheap goods
fcliould not fail to give them a call, and see if
they cannot be saved a trip up the river.
"Murder will out." We see in a recent
number of the Philadelphia Sun, a most extra
ordinary exempliration of this adage. It will
be remembered that the body of a female was
found, in Camden county, N. J., with marks of
violence upon it, which left no earthly doubts
that the deceased had been murdered. A mer
chant of Philadelphia, suspecting the remains
to be those of a female named Mary Ann Wil
Hams, formerly a resident of Indiana, wrote to
the Governor of this State, and has recently
received a letter in reply, disclosing the follow
ing facts, which may eventually lead to the de
tection and conviction of the murderer: It ap
pears that a murder was committed in Indiana,
borne three years since, and the individuals sus
pected of its commission tried and acquitted.
In the examination of the witnesses, residing
near the spot, it was observed that one, a Mrs.
Williams, manifested by tears and otherwise,
feigns of deep feeling; and of this, which was
attributed to timidity, no particular notice was
taken at the time. It is now supposed, that it
resulted from cognisance of the crime. It also
appears, that a man named Williams, a labor
er employed by a farmer residing near the
above place, frequently exhibited evidences of
distress of mind, and had casually remarked
that he dreamed that he had murJered his wife,
and buried her in a garden. A few days after
the publication of the letter from the merchant
in Philadelphia, in the papers of the place, this
man sudde nly disappeared and has not since
been heard from. From this chain of circum
stantial evidence, Gov. Whitcomb writes
that there can be no reasonable doubt, that
Williams committed, or was connected with,
the original murder in Indiana, and having left
the State, afterwards murdered his wife to pre
vent a disclosure of his participation in the
crime. Measures have been taken for the pur
suit and arrest of Williams, and if conviction
results, we can say, that there is not a more
extraordinary illustration in the annals of
crime, of the certainty of justice.
CCjTThe Union of Monday, says that Major
General Wm. O. Butler of Ky., has so far ra-
covered from the wounds which he received at
Monterey, that he proposes immediately to join
the army in Mexico.
Vermont. The new Senate of Vermont will
stand Whigs, 21; Locos, 9. The House will be
Whig by, perhaps, a still larger majority,
Our loss in killed, wounded and missing on
the 19th and 20th is 1,066, of whom 13 are offi
cers: 122 rank and file were killed. The Mex
ican loss in killed, wounded and missing is "at
least 15,000.
CC? Col. Doniphan's Regiment consisted of
1000 men. When they returned home, each
of them received 8630 for his pay, horses, &c,
and his land scrip besides, so that the expedi

urday the probability of the election of Twee
dy, whig, over Strong, loco, in Wisconsin.
We have now the satisfaction to announce
that he ha3 succeeded by an overwhelming ma
jority. We rejoice at this because of the utter
bad character of Strong, who is pronounced by
his party to be "a rowdy, a drunkard and gam
bler." Strong was too strong for the strong
stomachs of the loco focos themselves, and since
his defeat they are now throwing hot shot at
him with a hearty good will. Hear what the
Racine Advocate says of him:
The nomination of Moses M. Strong was
most unfortunate he ought not to have been
our candidate; for whatever may be his real
qualities, (and we are not among those who
think ill of him,) his character was bad.
A very general an almost universal impres
sion prevailed that he was a rowdy, a drunkard
and gambler, and that he had proved himself
untrust-worthy, in pecuniary matters.as a pub
lic officer. And this being the case, it was
natural, and indeed proper, that the Democra
cy who entertained this belief should reject
him.
CGFA monster inhuman form by the name
oillarker, residing in this county, was arrested
on Friday night last at the mouth of Green river,
on the charge of committing a rape on his own
daughter, a girl of about thirteen years of age.
He was brought to town and tried on Satur
day, found guilty and sentenced to twenty -one
years imprisonment in the Penitentiary. The
daughter was in Court and gave evidence against
him.
Three persons confinedin our jail forsome time
on the charge of larceny, confessed their guilt.
They have not received their sentence yet.
California. The St. Louis Republican of
last Thursday says, "A letter was received in

given him credit for feeling something of the
great national bereavement which he had caus

whose weepings and wailings are the result, in
part, of the unconstitutional manner in which
he brought on the war and the imbecile man
in which he has conducted it! But what cares

The St. Louis Reveille has the following hit
at the copper-mining mania which exists in
certain sections:
"A snake of the coprr-head species was kil-
ed a few days since near Princeton, New Jer

mediately formed upon the spot for mining
purposes."
Peaches. We see it stated that the "Rey
nold Farm," which Mr. Clay visited during his
late visit East, will net to the family 640,000
from the sale of Peaches in Philadelphia, this
year. This is certainly a fair business tran
saction, r
Progress of Temperance. Among the re
markable occurrences happening daily in out

took place yesterday. It will no doubt gladden
the hearth of all those who pledge themselves
on paper that they will not drink liquor when
they want it. A barrel of whiskey was found
without an owner or a claiment at the corner
of Camp and Thalio streets. Some dogs are
so cunning that they wont eat poisened sausa-

MEXICO. Below we copy an extra issued
from the office of La Patria, the Spanish paper
published in New Orleans, late on the even
ing of the 15th. It will be seen that the writer
of the letter from the city of Mexico states
that the commissioners on the part of the U.
States have consented to relinquish the Cali
fornias to Mexico and the establishment of the
boundary of the Rio Grande ! The Louisville
Journal thinks the writer was imposed upon by
a mere rumor or a hoax, and says: We do
not believe that any such treaty has beenj
agreed on, because we do not believe that Mr.
Trist was empowered to consent to such terms
and because the commissioners on the part of
our Government would not have assumed the
responsibility of such terms without specific
instructions frrom Washington.
By the arrival here, yesterday, of the schoo
ner Charran.from Tampico the 15th inst., we
have received most interesting intelligence
from the capital, contained in our usual cor
respondence from the former city.
Treaty of Peace Principal Articles.
Our fellow-citizens will learn with the high
est satisfaction, that, contrary to predictions
ireeiymade here, peace will positively bb
the result of the present negotiation between
the Mexican Government and Mr. Trist. We
learn that the utmost harmony prevails between
the high functionaries deputed by Santa Anna
and his cabinet to listen to the proposals of our
Government through the commissioner at Gen.
Scott's headquarters.
The outlines of a treaty of peace are said to
have been drawn, and agreed to, by the agents
of the contracting parties, of which the two
most important are the following: 1st. The
United States shall restore to Mexico the Cali
fornias: 2d. The United States shall forever
keep Texas, whose boundaries shall be exten
ded to the left bank of the Rio Grande, or Rio
Bravo del Norte, including Matamoros, which
shall be brought into fhe United States territo
ry, by means of a canal to be constructed forth
with. Our correspondent has been assured that the
above are facts, which certainly prove an un
usual magnanimity on the part of the United
States, who thereby consents to abandon her
conquest without arcely a visable inJornni.
ty conquests which cost her so much blood
and treasure. But we give the public the
le"er,so " due judgement may be passed
thereon:
Tampico, Sent. 5, 48-47.
I have just received a letter from Mexico,
is to this effect:
Mexico, Aug, 29, 1S47.
Esteemed Friend: I have already informed
you that Gen. Scott proposed a suspension of
armson the21st,and that it was followed by
occupy in our territory,
The United States shall forever retain the
State of Texas, whose limits shall extend to
the left bank of the Rio Bravo del Norte, com
prising Matamoros, by means of a canal, which
shall be made for that purpose."
In respect to this latter point, it appears
that nothing definitive has been agreed upon.
It has been found impossible to assemble
Congress, consequently, a iunta of "notables"'
will be formed, for the express purpose ot re-

nor as commander-in-chief: and he proposed to
asssmble troops for the purpose of attacking
the capital. Subsequently, however, it ap
pears, he surrendered himself to the Govern
ment, bv whom he has been sent prisoner to
Guadalupe, where he is to be brought before a
court martial.
General Alvarez is announced as intending
to re-assemble his troops, for the purpose of at
tacking the Americans on the first favorable
opportunity.
Gen. Paredes, it is stated, is marching on the
capital with a respectable force, which he has
succeeded in bringing together, with a view to
assist his countrymen. This he persists in do
ing, notwithstanding the order that has been
transmitted to him from Santa Anna to quit
the country to return again to the place of
his exile.
Gen. Sales. I have just seen a communica
tion from Gen. Sales, dated from Coayacan,
where he remained a prisoner, in tins ne oe
darcs that it was by the unskillfulncss of Va
lencia and the. cowardice of Torrejon that Jhe
battle of Contreras was lost, lorrejon, instead
of obeving the order of Salas, which directed
him to charge the Americans with his cavalry,
pusillanimously fled, and in this manner brought
ruin and destruction on our iniantry.
This is positively the latest news Irom the
capital but I expect at every moment the re
ceipt of more of still greater interest, which
will enter more into detail. J".
The above news, which we have riven to the
public the moment it came to hand, is really of
a character which is calculated to proauce
strangely conflicting feelings among Ameri
cans. The abandonment of California, after
all that has been said, is a great sacrifice to be
made to the Genius of Peaces peace for which
we are all anxious,

telligence we have seen from Gen. Taylor's ar-!
my is contained in, the following copied from
the New Orleans Picayune of the 12th.
We learn with regret that Brigadier Gen.
Hopping died at Mier on the 1st inst. The
brigade under his command at Mier has been
broken up; the 10th infantry garrisoning Mat
amoros and Camargo, and the 16th infantry
Cerralvo and Monterey.
Gen. Lane's brigade" was at the mouth of the
river, expecting to embark about the 8th inst.
Gen. Cushing arrived at Matamoros on the
3d, accompained by Lt. Col. Abbott. Gen. C.
is concentrating his brigade, as the several de
tachments come down, at 1 Sabinito, near Palo
Alto. Deas's battery, which was to have ac
companied Gen. Cushing, has been ordered to
remain with Gen. Wool, at the express request
of the latter.
Despatches have passed through Matamoros
for Gen. Marshall, at Monterey, to proceed to
Vera Cruz without delay.
Col. R. E. Temple arrived at Matamoros on
the 1st inst., with four companies of his regi
ment, the 10th infantry.
The Flag says that Col. Tibbatts, who was
proceeding from Mier to Monterey with six
companies of the 16th infantry, escorting a
train, was attacked by a large party of Mexi
cans near Ramos, and succeeded in driving
them off with a loss of two wounded. Col.
Tibbatts and his men were under fire for some
time, and conducted themselves with great in
trepidity. Intelligence was received at Buena
Vista on the 20th of August, in a letter from
San Luis Potosi, by the way of Parras, that

Urrea and some ol his engineers had been down

received Irom the ralomas rass announcing
that there were about 2,000 troops at San An

great confidence was placed iithem by Gen.
Wool, he considered it proper toVidopt all pre
cautionary measures to guard against any sud
den movement.
An express was sent down to Gen. Taylor
to apprise him of the reports the North Caro
lina regiment were ordered to Ariskc's mill, on
the hill two miles from Saltillo, with an order
to throw out a proper guard in Minon's Pass,
on the left of their encampment. Capt. Ruck

dered on picket duty in the neighborhood of
the town, and Capt. Prentiss was ordered out
on the hill commanding the town, with his
heavy battery of two iron 18-pounders and two
brass twelves. Everything was perfectly quiet
la3t night, however, and no new reports nave
been received this morning.
Gejt Urrea has issued the following address
to the "American Invaders:"
Soldiers and Volunteers of the American Ar
my! The war that you carry on against Mexi
co is the most unjust and barbarous that can be
conceived. Civilized nations de' -st it they
do not see in you the defendersof he rights of
an injured country, but merely the iools of a
man without foresight, without calculation
who, to obtain an unfortunate celebrity, has
not feared seriously to compron i at a great peo
ple. Do not doubt it. Every sensible Amer
ican will consider this war one of the most
atrocious nature sent by Tol': to Mexico, and
essentially iniquitous, becau- it is yandalic,
and belies the severe republican principles that
you all profess, because it serves to convert the
children of Washington and Franklin into rob
bers and assassins.
Sons of America! Let the world see you in
a better light than the miserable and odious
character you now represent. Do not serve
any longer the caprice of a man destitute of vir
tue or' good feeling. Abandon his lines, be
cause they are not those of honorable men
throw yourselves into the arms of the Mexican
nation, who, magnanimous and forgiving, will
forget the injuries you have committed. Here
you will find ground to cultivate, an honest
occupation whereby to gain the necessaries of
life without great latigue. iou will find the
sympathies of a generous people, and the tran
quility of conscience otherwise not to be ob
tained; because the man who a .tacks and des
troys the principle of Universal Moral, which
brings together nations as it does individuals,
cannot obtain it.
Soldiers and Volunteers ! Come to us, and
abandon the cause of crime I wait your ap
pearance and will receive you as brothers.

distress, 27th May, 1816, where the immnm-
tWAnitmBFli' were crossly lulu tcl
by an officer and boat's crew of H. B. M. steam
er Styx. The particulars, as related by Terry
W. Hall, the officer in command of the Ameri
can vessel at that time, and corroborated by
the protest of Captain Tilton, are as follows:
Upon the arrival of the Topmunnet at St.
Helena, Capt. Tilton and his first officer went
on shore, leaving the vessel under the com
mand of Mr. Hall, the second officer. Sever
al of the crew were also on shore for medical
aid, and among them a boat-stcerer named Ed
ward Marsh, a native of New York, as appears
by the shipping papers, who had been shipped
before the U. S. Consul at Fayal. Shortly af
ter the departure of Capt. Tilton, a boat's crevr
from the Sit x, under the command of a British
officer, armed and in uniform, and accompan
ied by Marsh, the boatsteerer above named,
came along side the Topmunnet, when the of
ficer came on deck and stated to Mr. Hull that
Marsh had shipped on board II. M. steamer
Styx, and demanded his clothes and bedding.
Mr! Hall declined to comply with the request,
stating that the vessel had been left in his
charge, and that he could not consent to have
anything taken from her without an order from
Captain Tilton. The British officer then or
dered his boat's crew to come on board the
Popmunnet, accompanied by Marsh, when the
officer and Marsh went below, took possession
of the clothes and bedding which they placed
in the boat, and returning with it to the Styx,
immediately put to sea. Mr. Hall protested
to the last'against these proceedings, and forth
with reported the facts . to Capt, Tilton on
shore, who immediately entered a formal pro
test before the U. S. Consul at St. Helena,
against this flagrant outrage, and representing
the detriment that must in consequence result
to the voyage from the loss of the services of
the boatsteerer, at a time wlien several of the
crew were reduced by sickness. We learn that
the facta have been officially communicated, to
the government at Washington, and we trust
that a prompt investigation and satisfactory
reparation will be demanded by the proper au
thorities. Aew Bedford Mercury.
A Noble Act. Col. Louis D. Wilson, of
