Somewhere about tho year 1835, Wil liam Bradway, a young man of five and twenty, then living ia the interior of the State of New York, left bis family consist ing of a wife and two small children, and went south on a tour of speculation. He was sbseut nearly a year, and seated on his return, that he bad been very success ful, and bad purchased a place on the Red river whither he proposed to move his family, and there settle, perhaps for lite. EEs wife pleased with the novelty of the change, readily assented to the new ar rangement, and, as soon as their Northern affairs were properly settled, they set off for their new home, vrhich io uue course of time, they reached ia safety. But Mrs. Bradway was sadly disap pointed ii finding the place so difL-ent from what she had pictured in her fancy, ihe settlement via? Dew, and everything was rough. The houses, many of them were built of logs, and even the best of tbem Lcked the finish of her Northern home, while the furniture was generally of the pi tinest and coarsest description, and scaDty at But worse that all tho rest were the inhabitants ; composed principally of rough speculators, negro traders, gamblers, aud outlaws from dif ferent quarters, with such females and children as looked to them for support.— Mrs. Bradway, who had been well educa ted and brought up in refined society, sought in vain amoDg them for suitable associates and companions, and, being a stranger in a straDge Hod, soon became depressed and homesick. Under the peculiar circumstances, she unguardedly made some remarks Dot complimentarv to the place and its inhabitants; and these being reported, with such additions and exageratioDS as scanda'.mongers generally use for embellishments, she soon found herself surrounded by epen enemies, and j subjected to seme petty annoyances and persecutions such as little, malicious minds' delight to inflict upon those they secretelv believe to be their superiors, and both envy and hate for that cause Six months Lai not passed away ere; William Bradway felt the necessity of removing h;s family from that unpleasant and lawless locality, and this he was pre-' paring to do, when an awful tragedy oc curred which changed the peaceful man! into a bloody avenger. Some business at a neighboring settlement called him from home for a couple of days and on his return he found his house in ashes, and learned that his wife and children had all been murdered under the most atrocious and aggravating circumstatces—his poor: wife, previous to her throat being cut, ! haviog been subjected to treatment worse, than death by the three ruffians concern ed in the horrible affair. * To a fond husband and father this was j a terrible blow : and for a day and a night William Bradway remained beside the still smoking ruins of his dwelling, some ot the time walking slowly around them with Lis eyes bent on the ground, and some of the time standing ead turning at, U ifye principles of Jrqc iHtoocbqctj, tya of sJoh}liiu, )£ifahtitjlrc qqD livtos. COUDERSPORT, POTTER COUNTY. PA., WEDNESDAY JULY 19. 1865. them with au abstracted air, as if be were recaliiug the past, or looking into the fu'ure. He had shown DO violent sorrow even at the first, but had received the awful intelligence as one mentally stupe fied—as one who could not clearly believe the facts and comprehend the whole ex tent of his loss. It was observed that his features suddenly became deadly white, even to his lips, and then gradually changed to a livid hue, which remained without alteration, and without being j afterwards tinged by even the slightest flush. "Who did it ?" he inquired, in a tone of unnatural calmness. Three men were named —George Har baugh, James Fawcet, and John Ellery. These men were known as gamblers and had been suspected of beiDg robbers and murderers. They did not live iu the vil lage, but had visited it occasionally, and one of them had, some time previously, had a quarrel with Bradway, and threat eued revenge, though the latter little dreamed at the time that anything so terrible was meant as Lad been accom plished. It is but justice to say thatjhongh the Bradways, as previously mentioned, had made themselves very unpopular in the place.there were very few of the residents who openly sanctioned the horrid crimes that had been committed, and there were some who boldly expressed a hope that the vile perpetraters would yet meet with a just punishment; but though the ruf fians bad made no secret of their fiendish •deeds, and had even boasted of them be fore they left the place, no one had made any attempt to arrest or detain them,and they had gone, no ODB knew whither. It was about ten o'clock in the morniDg that William liradway first saw the ruins of his home, and heard tho awful news of his irreparable loss ; and all through the remainder of that day and the night which followed it he conducted himself in the manner we have described, seem ingly taking DO notice of the curious groups that gathered around him, and re plying to none of the idle questions put to him. The next morning he went into a neigh bor's house and asked for something to eat, which was given him. He offered to pay for this but the man of the house de clined tojreceive any money, and, with expressions of sympathy, invited him to make his home there for a few days. "No," returned Bradway, "I intend to leave to day.'' "You don't look as if you'd got strength to go far;" said the man in a kindly tone. "I have that within which will sustain me," replied Bradway. He then inquired into the particulars of the awful tragedy and the direction taken by the murderers—speaking caiui iy to all tho replies —his features the while retaining their unnatural,livid hue, and displaying no signs of emotion, save perhaps now and then a precepiible quiv er cf the bloodless lips. As he passed through the villiage, after taking leave of his family, he was several times stopped by different parties who wanted to enter into conversation with him and find out what he intended to do, but he gave them only evasive answers, and slipped off asj quietly as possible. It was about two months after this that George llarbaugh, late one night, was picking hi 9 way through the dark streets of Nacogdoches from a gambling house to his lodgings, when a man came up to him and quietly said : "Good eveD \ • i)i ing, sir! "Who're you? and what d'ye want?" demanded the ruffian in a gruff,surly tone at the same time thrusting his right hand into his boscui as if to draw a pistol. "Do not be alarmed, sir returned the stranger; "but permit me to ask you one or two questions. In the first place, is your name Gee. llarbaugh ?" " Well, what of it, whether it is or is'nt?" was tho uncivil demand. "If it is, I owa you eomething, which I wish to pay." returned the stranger; "and if it is not, perhaps you can put me in the way to find the person I seek ?" "What do you owe me for and how much ?" inquired the gambler, taking his hand from his bosom. "I am right then, in supposing, I ad dress George Harbaugh himself ?" "Yea, that's my name. What's yours, I wber'd we ever meet before?" "If I am not mistaken," pursued the stranger, "you with two companions,were at the vilage of , on the Red river on the night of the sixth of September last ?" . "Ho ! what's this ?" cried the ruffian springing back, and again thrusting his hand into his bosom. He had not time for more, ere with a flash and a crack a ball passd through his- breast. As he staggered and fell shouting murder,a sharp knife was drawn across his throat and the name of William Bradway hissed into Lis dying car. It was the last earthly sound he ever beard. He was found murdered, but hi-3 assassin Wii not discovered. Daring the winter following, James Fawcet went among the Cboctaws to pur chase horses. While trading with the indians he fell in with a small dealer,who, for a trifliDg consideration,offeted to assist ] him m taking his horses to the settlement some two hundred miles distant, where ! he expected to dispose of them at a heavy profit. The bargain was struck,and,with fifteen horse 3, Jame3 Fawcet set off with his assistant through a long stretch of wilderness. On the second night, as the gambler and murderer sat smoking before D O the campfire, he was suddenly startled by finding a noose dropped over Lis head and ! shoulders and drawn around bi3 body, so as to pinion his arms. Ia less than a minute notwithstanding a vigorous re sistance on his part, he lay stretched on the earth as helpless as an infant. "What's the meaning of this ? Do you intend to murder mo?" he demanded ia a voice made tremulous by fear. "1 suppose you do not recollect ever having seen me before you met me ia the Indian village,?" said the man who had been acting as his assistant, as he now stood over hi 3 prostrate form. "No, of course not! where had I ever seen you before ?" replied Fawcet. The other removed a wig of long hair and a patch from one eye,aa than quick ly said : "Do you know me now ?" "Well, it does soern as if I had secD you before, but I can't tell where," said the ruffian. "Do you remember the woman and children you helped to murder on theGth of last September 7" "Ila ! you're Bradway !" cried the vil lain, in a tone of despair. William Bradway, at your service— the same in name as when you knew me. but not the same nature. Then I would not have harmed you ; but now I would execute the vengeance of a wronged hus band and father." "Mercy 1" gasped Fuwcct. "Did you show any ?" i "You will not murder me?" "You must die, I have sworn it. I have followed you to rid the earth of a monster. llarbaugh fell by my hand ; I shall not spare you, and then to hunt down John Ellery ! Say your prayers, if you have any to say, for your minutes are numbered I" "Mercy, mercy I" grsped the terrified ruffian. The avenger made no further reply,'cut i, deliberately proceeded to fasten a rope with a ncose, around the neck of Fawcet. This done, he dragged him to a sapling, bent it over, secured the other end of the rope near its top, and let it go. With a wild unearthly yell, the second murderer was jerked up from tho earth, and hung dangling, swinging, and strug gling a few feet from the ground. Brad way looked calmly on, till the body be came still in death ; and then, mounting his own horse, he rode swiftly away,leav ing the other horses and the money on the person of the dead man, to whoever might find them. It might have been six months after the terrible death of the ruffian just re corded, that two men sat ia a private room of a gambling den in Natchez.play ing cards for money. Files of gold and silver and rolls of bank notes were on the table between the men, snd each was staking his money freely, and apparantly considering nothing but how to beggar the other by bis superior skill or knavery. "You know,"said one of the two men. "that we are to play till one of "U3 wins all." "Suppose we take another drink on it!" "Agreed ?" A bottle and tumblers stood on the table just behind the first speaker, who got up and turned round and poured out two glasses —his companion, who had the deal, improving the opertunity as well as , he could to arraDge the cards so as to give himself a winning hand. The man who poured out the liquor now banded one to the gambler at the table and held .the; other himself ready for drinking. "To the cholera 1" he said, quietly nod - j ding to the other —for the malady had at that time begun its work cf destruction. "To the cholera be it then, ami let it do its work 1" cried the gambler, with forced bravado, turning somewhat pale, and tossing off his glass at one gulp. The other drank quietly, replaced the two tumblers, and resumed Lis sea; at the For a few minutes there was no remark made, except what concerned the game ; and then one who had partially packed the cards,as he raked down a large sum he had just won, said, looking up, with an expression of alarm, "By heavens ! I feel very strange!" "You look very pale," returned tho oth er —I think you are going to die." "Well, you're a pretty comforter, 1 must say !" "I think you will find mo so presently." "Ah?" groaned the gambler, droppb " tho cards and clasping his stomach with both hands, "I am on fire inside." "Of eourse you arc 4" How, of course ? What do youkujWj about it ? Have I got the cholera ?" de manded the gambler somewhat fiercely. "Listen to mo a few moments, and you will know and understand all. There were once three companions named Geo. llarbaugh, James Fawcet, and John Ellery. A little more than a year ago, they murdered an innocent woman and . two children, in the village of -,while the husband and father, William Brad way, was away. When ho returned and learned all tho horrid particulars,he ewore a solemn oath that he would never rest in peace till he should have hunted them all down, and put an end to their guilty lives. Georgo Harbaugh was assassinated in tho streets of Nacogdoches, James Fawcet was hung in the west, and John Ellery was poisoned in Natchez." "But lam John Ellery I" cried the gambler the very picture of horror. "No need to tell mo that, who have hunted yea to your death !" said theoth •cr. lam William Bradway I" "Good Heaven ! am I then poisoned ?" shrieked the wicked man, as new pangs seized him. "Yes, beyond hope ! ia fire minutes you will be a corpse." "Murder !—help !" the dying man be gan to cry. "None of that!" said Bradway,spring ing upon him like a tiger, and forcing a haDkerchief into his mouth, which he held there till the man fell down in spasms , when he turned to the table and quickly seleoted his own money from tho gam bler's and put it in bis pocket. The poison was quick and sure and in les3 than half an hour from his last drink of spirits tho murderer was a corpse.— Waiting only to be certain of his death, Bradway went down stairs and told some of the people of the house that his com panion either had the cholera cr had fall en down in a fit, and they had better go up and see to him. He then hastened down to the river, got on board the first passing steamer, and before night was many miles away from the scene of his last aot of vengeance. William Bradway subsequently went to Texas, joined a band of rangers, and was finally killed in a fight with a party of guerrillas OD tho western frontier. His companions all spoke of him as a quiet determined man, who was never known to smile. "ONE OF MR. LINCOLN'S HIRELINGS." —On Monday, while a Lancaster soldier who had just returned from a four years' campaign in tho Army ef the Potomac, was giving the result of his observations cf the Peninsular campaign of 1862, in which he was an actor, he incidently re marked that General Grant could do more work in an hour than Gen. MoClel'ao could do ic months. There happeued lo be a trio of Copperheads present, one of whom putting in practice tho teachings of his organ, remarked, "that's one of Lincoln's hirelings 1" Although the au ' tkor cf the insult was half as big again as the soldier, the latter, ia less time than it takes, us to write it, administered a severe punishment* to the'offender and commenced cn his companions who sought safety to a hasty exit out of the back door. In the afternoon a third pariV undertook to revenge the punish- j mc-nt of his fricnl but was disposed of about as quickly as the original offender, and wu3 glad also to beat a hasty retreat.! Ic is in such breaches of the peace as this that we see the fruits of the teach ings of those tory organs which denounc ed the Union soldiers as "Lincoln's hire lings" and stigmatized the President whom the soldiers so devotedly loved,as a "tyrant" "usurper," a "Caligula" and a "Nero." When their organs indulge in this style of infamous aspersions with impunity, their more ignorant dupes very naturally take up and use the offensive language thus put ia their mouths,know ing tLat no soldier of any spirit will sub mit to eueh insult 3. Such breaches of the peace,however ought to be prevented, and every graduate of the tory school who attempts to befoul a soldier with such epithets, should be at once arrested and punished by law for inciting a breach of the peace. It would be almost impossible to find a jury that would not convict such ap- .kings of Booth. — Lancaster Express. A movement is on foot, with ex-Gov.

Curtio, in conjunction with Sur geon General Philips, has procured a re liable list of the Pennsylvania soldiers who died at Andersonville, which will seen be published. Among the accompa nying papers is a list of Federal prisoners .received at Andersonville, which totals ,17.524. Of these 403 took the oath of allegiance to tho rebels, doubtless to pre serve their lives from starvation. Six of the prisoners were tried by a court marshal and executed within the stock ade in one day. The total number of deaths were 12,584. The highest num ber of deaths in a single day, the 23d of August, were 128. The several lists em brace only the prisoners confined at Andersonville from February 20ih, 1804, to March 24th, 1865. Our Finances. As everything relating to tho wealth, resources and financial ability of our country, are matters of special interest at the present time, we subjoin a few facts and figures,taken from a pamphlet issued by Messrs. Jay Cooke &Co., and prepared by Dr. Wm. Elder, of the Treasury De partment. Our national debt, at the close of the , war, is estimated at three thousand mill ion 3of dollars. Our debt, at theoloae of the last war with Great Britain, was one hundred and twenty seven millions of dollars, whioh was $14.G7 per head upon the entire population.and 7 per cent. up. on tho estimated value of the country.— This debt was paid in nineteen years,and was not felt by any one. The average interest of our debt, including five hun dred and fifteen and a half millions of "greenbaoks" aDd fractional currency, is 4,35 less than 4 J per cent. The wealth : in 1850 (eicinding slaves) was ten thous and eeven hundred millions, and the products of the year two thousand eight hundred and seventy millions, or 26 8 per cent, of the capital. Taking these amounts and rates as a basis,we now havo a result of sixteen thousand one hundred and twelve millions, and aD anual product of four thousand three hundred and eight een millions, in which sum the hundred and twenty six millions of interest would be 291 per cent. Assuming this basis as correct, we shall have a wealth in 1870, of twenty four thousand two hundred and eighteen millions, and an aaual pro ducing capacity of six thousand four hundred and ninety millions. In 1880 forty eight thousand two hundred and thirty nine millions, and a producing ca pacity of twelve thousand fifty niae mill ions/which gives the interest required at 1.35 per cent., or less than one and a half per cent, of tho producing capacity of the countjy. Our revenue from cur internal taxes tast year was two hundred and sixty millions, and is estimated at three huu dred and twenty five millions this year. It is computed that the entire debt caa be paid in twenty years from 1870 The enormous debt of Great Britain, of over four thousand millions of dollars, is only 12 per cent, of her entire wealth, and she has carried this heavy burden and has continued to increase in wealth. And as she has been able to do this, and nouo will question this fact, how much moro able are we to bear this debt, and at no distant day liquidate it. We Lave the finest country in the world, abounding ia mineral resources of tho richest quality, and a climate and soil which will produce ateost anything that caa be grown any where in the world. Wc also have room for a vast population; some bare set the number down at three hundred millions. We see no grounds even for despondency, for we think we caa successfully elimi nate this financial problem and p*y this enormous debt. Industry, courage, and faith, are the great trinity under which we have labored, aud by tbip ei 0 n we aro üblo to conquer now.
