reason for not settling the difficulty, that Lid
dell bad once taken advantage of him and
would again. During one of the interviews
Which witness had with Jones, witness told
Jones that after what had happened if he
(witness) were in Liddell's place, he would
consider himself bound to kill Jones through
to save his own life. This was sta
ted to Jones as an inducement to made some
fmngeinem. Witness did not tell Jones
fl.1» Maj. Liddell would kill him. Witness
tu intimate with Jones and said " Charley,
what in the name of God will you do then !
You can't both live here together in this state
of things." This was not said with the view
of conveying a threat from Maj. Liddell to
Jones. Witness had at that time never heard !
Maj. Liddell threaten to injure Jones either !
in his own house or elsewhere. Witness
never remembers to have told Jones that
** there were two men at Maj. Liddell's who
would hunt him like wolves." Witness never
knew such to bo the case, does not believe
such was the case and could not, consequently,
have told Jones so. When witness was at
Jones', on one occasion, when Wooten was
S resent, Jones told witness that young Mr.
mith, a nephew of Mr. Percy's, had been at
his house and made inquiries of him with
regard to the Nichols' plantation, stating
that he wished to buy the plantation, and
that as Jones had formerly owned the place
he wished him to explore the place with him
and to give him his opinion of it. Jones
there, or had anything to do with his going
there. Smith's geueral character in the
neighborhood was not a good one, though
he was * young man of respectable connec
mt - " -
tions. fPitness believes the reason why the
duel between Henry Huntington and Maj.
Liddell did not come off was that, in witness'
opinion, Liddell would have been assassina
ted on his way to Texas. Liddell assigned
that as a reason to witness. Glenn and
Pryor were to be Huntington's seconds : they
were both enemies of Liddell. Col. StantoD
was Liddell's second. Stanton said he was
not willing for Maj. Liddell to go to Texas
unless Glenn would guarantee that he should
return home without harm if not shot in the
duel. Glenn refused the guarantee.
Davis Beown, sworn.—-Witness was well
acquainted with Moses Wiggins, and had
known him for many years—was pretty much
raised with him. Witness once met Wiggins
soon after the latter had returned from New
Orleans. Witness asked Wiggins if he had
seen Charley Jones, and if he was well.
Wiggins replied that he had seen Jones, and
toon after said that he had no doubt Jones
would pay a man well to kill Maj. Liddell.
Wiggins was with Jones a great deal—was
a great associate of Jones'—they lived close
together during the summer season. Wig
gins was intimate with Glenn also—-was with
him a great deal—they travelled about the
country together a great deal. Witness
thinks that the conversation with Wiggins,
alluded to above, occurred some time daring
the year 1849, is not certain. Witness did
not testify before the Grand Jury which found
this biU
Hobt. D. Pkrct, sworn.—Witness is veiy
well acquainted with James A. Smith. S. is
a nephew of Witness' wife. Witness is aware
of the fact that Smith went, on one occasion,
to Jones' house : knows that he went with
so hostile purpose towards Mr. Jones : before
Smith went to Jones', he told Witness that
bis object was to see Pryor, so that he would
know him : this was before Smith went to
Maj. Liddell's. After Smith had been to
Jones' house, Jones wrote a letter to Witness,
in which he told witness, that his nephew,
Wm. Smith, had been at his house ; that he
treated him like a gentleman while there,
and that he (Jones) felt no alarm on account
of Smith. Smith went to Major Liddell's
merely to assist in protecting his house, in
case it should be attacked : he went at the
request of witness. Before this, and just af
ter Jones waylaid Liddell below Trinity, wit
ness had advised Liddell to have his mends
about him, as there was danger that his
house would be attacked. Witness did not
testify before the Grand Jury which found
few bill.
_ James Henslt, sworn.—Witness has re
sided eleven years in this Pariah. Witness
was very w«H acquainted with Glenn and
Wiggins ; lived not far from Glenn on Little
River. Some few weeks before Glenn was
killed, he came to witness' field, where wit
ness was ploughing at the time. He told
witness that was a slow way of making
money, and he could put bhq on an. easier
road tb make a fortune ; witn««s enquired
howl Glenn replied that if he (witness)
would kill Maj. Liddell hé should have
$ 1500 . Witness told Glana that ha had
_ Liddell : that he would
not taka the life of any man in cold blood.
Glenn told witness if $1500 was net enough
to fix his own price : witness refitsed on any
tuna to have anything to do with the mat
ter, and Glenn left. Soon after Wiggins
eama aadptopoaad to witness to take up
Glenn's proposition : sud that he would see
that no harm came to him (witness:) that
ha knew ail toe roads to Tsxaa; that he
would show witness toe way there ; that he
was able to raise $1500 or $2000 himself ;
that he would join his mens with what wit
nan would get for killing Liddell, and that
together they would establish a Grocery in
Texas. Witness »did not testify Worn toe
Grand Jury which found tUa bill.
H. C. Jons, sworn.—WR mm waa pres

person of T. W. Graves. This took place in

Grant Likcbcum, sworn. —Witness was
well acquainted with Glenn. Glenn was a
violent man ; a few days, not more than
three or four days before bis death, witness |
believes that he was the worst man that
ever went unhung. Witness did not testify
before the Grand Jury which found this
suaded, and----- .
was a dead man. Witness is very well ac-j

Pryor was a notoriously bad

Laxikgham, sworn.—Witness was
acquainted with Moses Wiggins. Not long
before Wiggins death, witness was overtaken
by him on his way to his house. W iggins
commenced speaking of the difficulty existing
between Jones and Maj. Liddell. Witness
told Wiggins that he regretted exceedingly
the existence of that difficulty—that things
had got to such a pass now in the parish that
a man was almost afraid to express his opin
, . ... j.«. ' :
ion about that difficulty, or even to think

about it. This was about the ti me that Pryor,
Sam Smith, Emerson, Glenn, and Wiggins
were in the habit of coming to Trinity armed,
Lotns Napoleon and the Sultan de
scended from American Ancestors. —The
past history of the families of Louis Napoleon
and the Sultan of Turkey, is full of interesting
and marvellous incidents, some of which are,
probably, not generally known to our readers.
These two monarchs, now so cordially
united in the struggle to maintain the integ
rity of the Ottoman Empire, are both grand
sons of American ladies. These ladies were
born nnd raised in the same neighborhood,
«Su the Hand of Martinique, one of the West
Indies. They were of French origin, and
compmfans and intimate friends in childhood
and youfc. They were Josephine do Tascher
and a ilss S-.
The history of Josephine is generally
knowi. She went to France, and married to
M. de Biauharnais, by whom she had one
son, En jene, and a daughter Horteuse.—
Some line after the death of Beauharnais,
Josepkiae was married to Napoleon Bona
parte, atd became Empress of France. Her
daughter Hortense, was married to Louis
Bonaparte, then King of Holiaud, and the
present Imperor of Franceis her son by that
Miss Ü quitted the Island of Martinique
some titUe before her friend. But the vessel
that w»scarrying her to France was attacked
and tale» by the Algerine Corsairs, and the
crew inj passengers made prisoners. But
this coistir ship was in turn attacked and
pillaged by Tunis pirates, and Miss S. was
carriedby them to Constantinople, and offered
for sales« a slave. Her extraordinary beauty
and accomplishments found her a purchaser
in the Saltan himself ; and she soon became
the ehiflady of the Seraglio and the Suita
ness of Turkey. Mahmoud II. was her son,
and thl present Sultan, Abdul Medjid, is tbe
son of Mahmoud.
Thut die two sovereigns who now occupy
so largi a space in the world's eye, are grand
sons of two American creole girls, who wore
playmées in their youth ; and were as re
markaTle for their beauty and excellent dis
positiois, as for their varied and singular
But these women—in the height of their
power—iemembered all the friends of their
youth, çid provided munificently for their
welfare. Many of the friends of the Sulta
nen left the Island of Martinique, and settled
at Constantinople, where their descendants
still rende, and enjoy the favor of the Sultan.
The Sultaness died in 1811, the Empress
Josephine in 1814, and their grandsons now
rule jbver two wide and powerful empires ;
and $re entering, as friends and allies, upon
one the most momentous and sanguinary
struggles in which Europe was ever involved.

A singular marriage recently too place in
New Castle, Del. A young lady of Brandy
wine, had some week or so previous com
mitted to jail a young gentleman for being
naughty; * * * * The young gentle
man it is said was willing to make all right
by marrying the lady, but the young gentle
man's mother—these old ladies are queer
tilings, they forget when they were young,
and their many shortcomings—would'nt con
«pp»t to the marriage. So the young lady
dapped toe gentleman in jail ; where after
keeping him just long enough to get a taste
of prison life, she made her appearance, on
the aforesaid day, and very coolly gave him
his <du»ce of two things, either to come out
like a maw and marry her, despite of his old
mother sml all the world, ' and the rest of
mankind,' or else stay in jail thé balance of
his life and rot there. This was a hard alter
native,'|nd the young gentleman, after a brief
consideiation, came to the conclusion that it
was better to be hung in toe matrimonial
halter, than* to rot in jail, so he came out
boldly and the Rev. Dr. Spottswood soon had
his neck ornamented with th
e noose that is
" tied by the fongue and can't be untied by
the teeth," and the happy roupie returned in
the can for their homes. But it is said that
the young man, whether from happiness at
finding himself a married man instead of the
ipmato of a prison, ojtftom some other cause,
forgot to stop in Wmnington .where he lan
ded his wife, but continued on to Philadel
phia! **d has not beat heard from since.

The aim of the editor w iD be to produce ft publica
tion which shall be valuable in matter, and choice in
taste and style: and he flatters himself, from the
known talents of his contributors, that he w ill be able
to present as many good original articles to hi. read
era as anv publication of the day. He shall not.
however, hesitate to publish, trout time to time, arti
cles from English authors, and translations from the
best German and French writers, provided the pieces
have never before appeared in print in this country.
Essavs on important political subjects will likewise be
inserted, an»l criticisms or the literature of America
and the movements of the age. The review depart
ment, in which a large and liberal spirit ol criticisms
will always be maintained will be extended. _ For the
defence of American literature the editor will always
be ready ; for tbe maintainance of a correct tone in
the Magazine, he will, if possible, be still more watch
ful. Each number will contain an engraving from a
splendid steel plate. In addition to the choice de
signs and engravings of Devereux, who will still -up
plv illustrations for the text in the body of the book.
The aim of the editor will not be, so much to increase
the number of his engravings, as to secure for those
he publishes the utmost finish which the artist can
give them ; for common wood cuts are so easily mul
tiplied, that tlie most indiflerent publication may out
rar.k in dreary display the choicest period'ynl.
The editor'does not feel, that with his own readers,
hc can increase his claims to their respect br insisting
on any verv great superiority of Graham over several
similar publications, but thinks he may safely confide !
in their friendship for the Magazine, and in its past j
management for its present list, a id such increase as :
naturally grows out of an extended circulation in a
country where readers are multiplying so rapidiy.
Of the January number the first etiilion will be 3»V

be so prompt in renewing old clubs, ami extending
the ll«t among new ones, that the first edition shall be
but half of what the now year will ultimately estab
lish as the permanent circulation of Graham.
