FLTJIOUTII, IND. Thursday Morning May 31, 1855. (Advertisements to insure inser tion, mast be handed in by Tuesday preced i:ig the day of publication. T!:: tow State Bank Is the heading of rather an ill natured ami ill timed article in the last South Becd Register. Tha Board of Commissioners designa ted in the new State Bank charter, to or ganize and locate its branches, met at In dianapolis week before last for that pur pose, end in the discharge of their sworn duty, located a branch at Pljmouth in stead of South Ben J. Hence bloody mur der, treason and every other political and moral misdemeanor, are pushed into their faces in Mr. Colfax's own nies und cour teous manner. The position is assumed, that, because a branch of the old State bank has been located at that place for the last iiccnty years, it necessarily fol lows that a branch of the rew one should also be located there. To sustain this greedy disposition to monopolize every little favcr that is to be bestowed so clearly manifest in this position Mar ahall county and its couuty seat are made to appear quite diminitive indeed, by a comparison of statistics from the census i of 1S50. V must here deny, however, thit St. Joseph coun'y has realized a pro portionite increase of population, wealth and enterprize. with Marshal!, since 1S50. The Register seems to rely solely upon the population cf towns .o sustain what it thinks to be an unquestioned light to thi branch. Estimate the entire popula tion of the dtfifer'n. counties with a view to their location in this (3d) Bank dis trict, and compare the numbers and capi tal that would be most accommodated to have it here, vith those who desire it lo cated at South CenJ, and the aslonish inent of every business man" in that com munity might not be so great after all. The S'.ato Sen:intl partially explains the reasons which uenced the Commis sioners in their action in this particular, and thry are very plausible indeed, wheth er the Register and every businr is man in its community can see it or not. The Sentinel says: "The reasons assigned for changing the location in these instances, from Michi gan City to Laporte. and from South E?nd to Plymouth, are thought by many to be plausible and satisfatory. Laporte was regarded, in considering this case, as .he centre of business for a larger class of community than Michigan City. nJ fc-cr-d (u accordance with this idea.- This selection seemed to involve the ne cessity, it was urged, of changing the lo ratiuu of the South Bend branch; for the tfdbon that a branch at either of these places, b) the railroad connection, will cccommodate the same district of coun try. Flymou'h will be connected, after a while, with Laporte, by railroad, it is tru, yet she ?e3c!r? a district of coun try, very rich and rapiJiy developing, which has but little connection with ci ther South Bend or Laporte." It is quite slf-evident that the loca tion of this branch creates no fight be tween St. Joseph and Marshall counties. The removal cf the Michigan City branch very materially changed the claims of the former in fat or cf tho latter. The Register's abuse of Mr. Wheeler who has heretofore sr faithfully watched the interests of his constituents comes with an ill grace from such a source. It resurrects all the old votes he ever gave upon the subject of banks certainly with no other view than to render him ridicu lous if possible, in his successful efforts to have a branch established at this place, and lessen his influence with the board in keeping it here. What have Mr. WV bank or anti-bank votes to do with the Commissioners in an impartial discharge of their duties to the People? But hear what Mr. Colfax says about such a man, nd then our readers will agree with ui, that such inappropriate allusions come with an ill grace from such a source; "And the man who dares not, at any hezard, stand up rcaufully for the inter ests of his home when assailed, does not deserve to have any." That's our fix. Is the preceding any 'misconstruction" of your remarks, Mr. Register?

An adjourned meeting of the Bcaii of Commissioceis was held at Indianapolis on Tuesday last, at. which, vigorous ef forts were dovbtlesg made to change the location of the branch from this place to South Bend. We hate heard nothing of its deliberations. 1 We should lik6 to have aeen a list of the counties composing each district. It is very certain, however, tnat M. aosepn being one of the extreme northern counties in the State cannot be the cen. tre of this; unless, by the way, it and Marshall only, compose the district, and then the Register would have us believe that South Bend was the centre of all creation. Our readers will fiind accounts of two or three frightful whirl wind occurrences in this paper. They have been unusually frequent of late. We hope they have no allusion to the present organization of political parties. Another 4C9 dollar Sucker. Gen. Stapp of the Madison Banner says he has sold his establishment again, and to a man of abundant means, but does not mention his name. One thing is quite certain if he keeps that Banner afloat he will find use for his "abundant means." We hope however, iho fortunate purchaser may keep it in operation one week at a less cost than S43S 50 schnapps in. BflW IS it, Dec? A minister, not long since, upon application being made to him to locate in one of our Northern Indiana towns, made several appropriate inqui ries as to the business of the place, the uumber of ministers, professional men, &c. When he ascertained that there would be but two regular officiating cler gymen, and nine practicing physicians, he remarked that the task would be rath a laborious one to attend to their stated ministerial duties, and follow nine doc tors, with funeral ceremonies. We did not Karn whether he located or not. Small Malters. Our attention ha recent ly been called to a "slight sprinkle' of a drubbing we, or our Iowa correspondent received at the hands of the Cincinnati Columbian 5c Grtat West; but we really have not time to attend to all the little spats we receive from all the little coun try pa pen.

Other causes are as signed, in another article in thispaper. White and fchrk. Mary Williams and her infant daugh ter, the former an Irish woman, the latter born in this country, were sent to Europe on the 19ih inst., by the State of Massachusetts, Mit the crime of being too poor to live in that Commonwealth. The Boston Advertiser contrasts this case with that of the fugitive slave An- ! thony Burns, in the following forcible manner: "The fugitive Slave Law of th United Sutes seems so abominable en actment to our Legislature, that they will not even call it laic in their official re cords. Yet our own Massachusetts pau per rendition law, vastly more barbarous, remains on our statute books, and the Legislature will not interpose to amend or repeal it. Our legislators see the metes in the eyes of members of Con gress, but know nothing ot the beams in their own. The rendition of Anthony Burns from Massachusetts to Virgina, under a law of the United States designed to give ef fect to an express stipulation of the Con stitution, caused an immense excitement in this community. The rendition of Mary Williams and her infant Bridget, under our own law, by our own authori ties, scarcely caused a remark. He was sent back under a law of the United States, binding on the people of Massa chusetts, whether agreeable or disagreea ble. She was snt under one of our own laws, which the same Legislature that elecled Henry Wilson to the Senate and voted to remove Judge Loring from the j bench, might repeal in a day. He was sent back to the care of n master, bound in law to feed, clothe and protect him. She was sent to be landed on a foreign shore, where there may not be even a single person to know or care that she has arrived. "He was sent away, a strong man with stout limbs, able to bear misfortune and hardship, should they fall upon him, with some degree of firmness. She was sent away, a weak woman, with an in fant a few weeks old, demanding all her care, and with nobody to protect or as sist her. - The treasury ol the United States bore the expense of tha rendition of Anthony Burns. The treasury of Massachusetts paid for the rendition of Mary Williams. But then he was a ne gro "a man and a brother," while she was only a while woman a woman and a mother. No vigilance committee rallied at the rumor of the embarkation of Mary Wil liams. No young and enthusiastic coun sel hurried to proffer her their service. Judges were not solicited at unseemly hours for writs of habeas corpus; and nothing . was said about the dc hominc repirgiand0 in ner case. Sheriffs and coroners were not plagued with process-j es they did not like to serve. The quiet of the city was not broken; only rt few heart-rending cries disturbed the silence of Long Wharf on Monday evening the deed was done, the woman was embaik ed, and yesterday morning the vessel sailed with her living and unwilling freight." Read and remember the foregoing, as we expect to have occasion to allude to it again. U'aa nor that infant a a tivc born American exiled on4ac:ount of its mother's poverty? These things have their influence with us. Agricultural Depot and Seed Store. Dr. T. D. Lemon, of Laporte, has erected a building, which is now being finished, adjoining the Post Office, in that city, which is to be occupied by himself, in company with a gentlemau from Kentucky, as a ßeed store. They have made arrangements with all the principal seed stores and nurseries by which they will be enabled to supply their customers with all kinds of seeds, plants, shrubs or fruit trees, at short no lice at the same rates they are sold at where produced. Their arrangements are such, also, that they can furnish fanners andothers with improved breeds of cattle, sheep, hogs, poultry, &c, of ony desired kind, at short notice, and at an expense much less than they have been subjected to, to procure them. A teenty" advertisement in the Ban ner, might enable them to sell an item or two and us to buy a Shanghai sheep.

Whereas, It is iepresenle(j l0 me on re liable authority, agrcat outrage has been committed in Clay counlyt Indiana, by the destruction of tbe Birch Creek Reser voir, n necessary and indispensable feeder of the Wabash and Erie Canal; and whereas, it further appears that an armed mob of persona, consisting of one hundred or more, did, on the 10th day of May, instant, at the hour of 12. M., appear on the banks of the said work, and, after fi ring at the guard stationed thereon, and driving hirrt away, proceeded to cut the embankment of the same, discharging the water which had been collected, and otherwise damaging the property of the Trust; and whereas, all the persons en gaged in that nefarious and unlawful pro ceeding were disguised, by the appropri ate concealment of blackened faces and other outward disguises befitting such a deed; and whereas, I have reason to be lieve that but a few of the persons so en gaged reside near the site of said Reser voir, or have just cause for complaint, if any exist, but are, for the most part, an organized and unlawful association of persons, resolved to set at defiance the legal rights of persons and the security of their property, as has been manifested on many recent occasions; and whereas, it is the duty of the Executive of Indidana to aee that the laws are faithfully executed, and the public peace preserved; therefore: De it known. That I, Joseph A. Wright, Governer of the Stale of Indiana, by vir tue of the power vested in me, do hereby offer a reward of five hundred dollars for any information that may lead to the an prehension and conviction ot" the person or persons, or any one of them, who aid ed and assisted in the cutting of the em bankment of the Birch Creek Reservoir, in Clay county Indiana, on Thursday the 10th day of Mar, 1655. And it is further declared and made known, that the sacred promises and pledges given by the State of Indiana to her creditors, by the laws establishing the Trust; and the protection promised and guarantied therein, shall bo faithfully kept and fulfilled so far as tho employ ment of all regular and consl'culional means shall be necessary to arrest theso lawless proceedings, and to prevent a re petition of conduct disgraceful to the ac tors, their ciders and abettors. To ac complish this, force may be necessary. In that event, I shall not fail to invoke it, for tho safety of the work is placed under the gnrantee of the law, and that shall not be disregarded. The State has a deep interest in this matter, and the confinding men who placed a moiety of the debt due by tho people of Indiana, into the canal, shall not have their confidence abued wiih out nn effort to save our beloved State from the disgrace anddishonor which these mob would entail upon our citizens. This spirit of lawlessness must be met 6c ar rested, ifwedonot desire to have our State a by-word and a reproach in the land. It will be no fault of mine, if irresponsible association shall control and over-ride the written laws of the State, and become the avenger of imaginary wrongs. No mans property will long be secure, if armed men in disguise can do these things with impunity, and go unpunished and unres trained. In testimony whereof, I have hereun to set my hand, and caused the sent nl -( the State of Indiana to bo affixed, seal at the city of Indianapolis, this 2 Ith day of May. 1655. By the Govenor. JOSEPH A. WRIGHT. Erasmus B- Collins, Secretary of Slate. From the Lapier Mich. Deinof-rat, May 22. Destructive Whirlwind. The town of Maranthon, in this county was visited last Tuesday evening wiih the most destructive tornado ever known in this section. It came from a we.sterlv direction, and the first we hea' of it was at John Craw ford's, in the town of Forest. Mr. C's barn was unroofed, and the board, rafters. &c. carried loa considerable distance. Mr. McKinstry's house was unroofed and much damaged. John Biue's house and barn were unroofed, and the barn, a new frame building was much racked. His fields were so much filled with falling timber, old logs, rails, lumber and rub bish, that it will requiro nearly as much labor to clear it off. as it did in a state of nature. Wm. Merrill's house was moved from its foundation and unroofed. The widow Luther's house was entirely demolithed, and some of her furniture was rarried off in the whirl. Her son, a young man of IS or 20 years, was seen to be holding on to a wild plum tree, but after the ternado had passed, he was found upon the ground some rods off, the plum tree had been twisted off, and was laying across Mr. Luther, who had one arm broken in two places, and otherwise 3D seriously iij J vcotcij Is very doubtful. The school house was unroofed. Mar tin Valentine's house was also unroofed. These are tho only buildings we lave heard ofthat were injured. Th heaviest loss will be in the de struction of the valuable pine and other timber in its course. So great was the force of the whirlwind that nothing could withstand it. The giants cf the forest, which have withstood the storms of a hundred years, were wrenched from their firm roots, and tossed about like straws. Even slumps, firmly imbedded iu mother earth, weie torn up and canigl many rods. Old logs which had lain on the ground for years were disturbed, and torn from their resting place. The air was literally filled with fence rails, limbj of trees, boards, rafters, shingles, &c. which were lifted to an immer.se height. The course of the Nvhirlwind was iu a nearly eastdirection. ranging from twen ty rods to a half miles in width, and making n clean sxceep as it went. We have heard from over eight miles of its course, and it was still moving on i's course of devastation and ruin. We have been lold by those wSio have visited tbe spot, that th irark of the tornado present a most singular appear ance. The trees growing in the center were twisted off and thrown lengthways, while those on each side were thrown across the .center, the tops pointing in, and forming a handsome window. In some places even the culverts on tho roads were torn up by the tornado, and the roads generally are filled up with a promiscuous assortment of limber and rubbish of all kinds. We hear rumors of the destruction of other buildings, but hope they may not prove true. Since writing the above, we have been called upon by Dr. Griswold, who spent two or three days in Maranthon last week and visited the scene of the destruc tion. The Dr. says the tornado first broke upon a log house in the town of Forest, which was unroofed. It next struck the log school house near Crawford's, which it utterly demolished, not leaving one log upon another. Near Crawford's is a small lake, about forty rods wide and fifty or sixty long, the water of which was raised higher than the tops of the trees, leaving the lake neatly dry. From thence it passed through a forest, mow ing its way, till it came to the town of Marathon. Blue's bouse and barn were unroofed. Mrs. Luther's house was en tirely destroyed, and her lurniture smash ed to pieces, and rendered worthless; everything in her house was ruined, and scattered in all directions, for half a mile around. Jerrome's house was unroofed, and others much damaged. Near the house of Mr. Merrill, is what is called a mount spring, from which a stream of water sufficient to fill a three inch pipe is discharged. The spring forms a basin ten or twelve feel in diameter, and about eighteen inches deep. AlJthe water was drawn up, and those who noticed it say that no water roae in tha spring for sev eral moments afur th tornado passed. The roofs of the buildings wert raised en tire to the height of 20 or 30 feet when tha vhirl would break them up, and scatter the fragments-in all directions. In some cases the fragment! have been found two miles from the place from which they started. Terrible Hurricane in Illinois. Chicago, May 24. Accounts reached this city last night of a most terrific hurricane and whirl wind in the towu of Jefferson, Cook co., and other places north and west of here, on Tuesday afternoon. A rapidly revolv ing funnel shaped cloud passed swiftly along near the ground about 16 miles north of here, carrying up large sticks of wood, stones, &c. It. described a semi circle towards the south east, twisting off large trees and whisking them out of sight instanter. The whirlwind then broke in two and disappeared. It imme- jdiatcly formed again, and passed directly back north-west with redoubled violence. It struck a heavy frame house one mile from the Illinois and Wisconsin Railroad; instantly the roof was torn off. Almost immediately the house went up, and was hurled down in different places. Four persons were instantly killed, and others mutilated beyond the prof pect of recov ery. The whirlwind passed over a post and rail fence, of which not the slightest vestige remains. It next struck a barn, then upon the house, and a number of cattle, crushing them at once. The tim bers of the house and barn were hurled to the ground with such violence as to bury them most out of sight. Thehouse belonged to Mr. Page, whose wife, son, and two grand children were killed.

Terrible Explosion. Six Men Killed! TheSieam-saw-mill of Messers. Collet & Weston, recently erected on the line of the Rail Road four miles north of this place, blew up on last Friday evening abjut sundown, killing every person in the mill, excepi the Engi neer, who wis not seriously hurt. The persons killed were James Cooper, Washington Cooper, Christopher Cooper, Sameul Cooper, Asa Ilewet, and Isaac Collet. Mr. Collet lived aboul ten minutes, but did not speak. The others were kill ed instantly one or two of them beinc thrown a distance of thirty or forty feet from the mil!. The upper portion of one man's head was entirely taken off, and nf-t found till next day; and they were all more or lesfhoribly mangled. Tho boil er was blown ino altom-, entirely des troyed the tili, and moving the frame which is very heavy, a distance of eight feet off its foundation. A portion of the boiler weighing five or six hundred pounds was thrown a distance of two hundred yards. The explosion was terrible, rind was distinctly neard ten miles oil. It is impossible to ascertain the melan cholly event, but as near as we can learn through the many conflicting stories, it was thro ihe incapacity of ihe Engineer, The general opinion seems to be that the valves had in soma way got out of order, and that he, not knowing what was wrong kept crowding on steam until the fatal ac cident occurred. It is almost a miracle thit he escaped with life. T.'so miil had been started that day, and four of the per sons killed had just entered tha mill to s-e its operation when ihe explosion took place. Several women aud children had left a few minutes before. Wo trust this sad occurrence will be a warning to persons engaged in sleam operations. Let no engineer be employed unless he is known to be both careful and competent. Albion (la) Palladium. - - ' 3Ioarnful Case of Suicide. The Laluyette (Ind.)

Spncer Davis, n young man about twenty-five years old. nephew of the late Gen. Tipton, blew his brains out with a a pistol, loaded with seven buckshot, un der ihe following circumstances; He was a printer, and worked in the office of the Tliaros, hrul for sorn lime past been ad dicted to hard drinking. He had been endeavoring to pay his addresses to a la dy named Baldwin, who resides on the island in ihe Wabash, and by whom his suit was rrjected. On Friday evening he went to the gate of the house and cal led ihejoung lady, saying he wished to bid her good bye, as ha was going away. Upon coming out, she perceived a pistol in his hand, which he was attempting to conceal behind him. She immediately ran into the house in great alarm, fast ened the door, and sent a boy through a back window for her father. Her father soon urrived, and found youn Davis sit ting an the porch. As he entered the gate, Dav'13 jose up, aud Mr. Baldwin perceiving a pistol in his hand which he was in the act of raising, said to him, Davis, don't hurt me." Davis replied, 'No, Baldwin, I wouldn't harm a hair of your head," and immediately discharged the pistol into his own right temple. He fell, bleeding copiously, with a hor rid wound in the head, out of which the brain immediately oozed, but, neverthe less, he lived for several hours. Young Davis has always been consid ered an amiable, harmless, and good hearted young man, and his funeral was attended by a large concourse of sympa thizing friends. Massachusetts Look at Heb!

Fatal Accident. A man was found this morning, dead, on the Railroad track two miles east of this city. Both legs were cutoff. It is supposed that ho was run over by the 11 o'clock train going east last night. He was probably drunk and so stupified by liquor that he was unable to get out of the way of the train. The accident was not known until the train came in from tho east this morn ing. Since writing the above, we learn that a coroner's inquest was held over the body by Esq Kreßs, and that the name of the deceased is John Nelson; that he w as a collier and lived jiu Galena Township in this county. He wi3 about 30 years t . r old, and leaves a wife and children. Someone made a dime or half dime clear profit on the liquor that deprived a fam ily of its head. Laporte Union. Showing ii rs Paters.
