In the earlier yearn of his residence in Gwin

more than twenty years,—and ofteu called iuto

some of onr Democrotic friends in this city,

A Production of Savannah.
We had the pleasure yesterday of seeing a
letter from Miss Eliza Logan at Cincinnati,
which says that the Italian Bride, a Melodrama
written bv a gentleman of Savannah, was pro
duced in that oily on the evening of the nth.
Miss Logan performed the principal character
herself and describes the reception of the play
as a most successful hit. She repented it every
night during last week up to Thursday. She
says **1 never saw a new play go oft’so well.” *
We hope in the coming fall to have the plea
sure with the public generally, of hearing it on
our own boards The play itself is a production
of unquestioned merit, and we had felt confi
dent of its success whenever it should lie brought
fought the sanguinary battle at “ Shepherd’s
Plantation,** the datails of which arc now
matter of history. H will be remembered
that the Indians came upon them by sur
prise, when they were washing their clothe
and taking a rest after a fatigueing march. Tiie
1 udians came upon them iu numbers ten to one,
making a most murderous attack. CapL G.
gathered his meu aud received the enemy in
the bravest manner, and for more thau three
hours maintained himself iuthe unequal contest
with his savage foe. In this battle he lost
eight men killed, and had a number wounded*
He also received a severe flesh wound himself.
As an evidence of the bravery of his little baud
they left fifty Indians dead, aud a large number
wounded on; the field. The Indians were led
by the notorious “Jim Henry," one of the most
skillful aud daring Warriors of the Creek Na
tion. Notwithstanding the gallantry of Capt
Gahmany and his command he would have
been finally annihilated, but for the timely re
lief or the brave Maj. Jkrmigak. Wournout
with fatigue, and having exhausted their sup
ply of ammunition, they would finally have
been obliged to yield, but Jekmigan, at the
head of twentj mounted men came down upon
the foe with such dauntless bravery as to carry
consternation on every haud, thus enabliug tbe
little band to reach the Fort, whilst the savages
retreated across the Chattahoochee to the Ala
In 1831 he volunteered, at the head of more
thau one hundred men, to put down the threat,

was not called into active service.
In tbe Senate of the State Mr. G. represented
his fellow citizens with credit to himself; and

years since, and finally settled in Ringgold. His

Disorganization of Californio Society
We publish to day a deeply interesting chap
ter of California history. The record U, we
believe, without parallel in the annals of civili
zation. Example.* indeed are not wanting of
mobs rising up and wresting from the officers
of the law, offenders, or supposed offenders,
upon whom they were determined to wreak
their vengeance. But such uprisings, the work
of the impulsive and law-less, have ever been
deprecated by tiie friends of order. The latter
when compelled to witness tiiese scenes have
done so with shame and sorrow.
The reports from San Francisco bring before
us the example of n mob. numbering thousands
of the most moral and orderly citizens of that
place, all banded together in tite work not of a
moment, but in an undertaking matured by days
of deliberate council—their purpose being no
more nor less thau to set aside for the time
being, the exUtiug legal authorities. We say
for the time bring—because there is no evidence
that a revolution and change of government are
contemplated or anything more than a tew'
porary administration of justice by the “Com
mittee of Safety,”
However necessary this uprising under the
circumstances, it is terribly portentous. Those
engaged in it have in the name, and for the,
purpose, of suppressing disorder set* aside the
laws. To en.orce justice, they have invoked
the teriflc powers of anarchy. They are easting
out devils through Beelzebub.
So much for the blessings of “free society.” So
much for protecting California from the “cttree
of slavery.’* The frcesoilers und abolitionists
have had their way there. They said that slavery
"hould not enter California’s borderland it has
not. Those wlto would have given to the young
community the conservative and productive
forces of that institution were foiled and defeat
ed. The result is before us in the utter disor.

Mr. Fillmore** Letter of Acceptance.
Mr. Fillmore’s letter of acceptance falls very
far below the mark of Mr. Jenkins, requirement.
Upon the “new issues" orignating since his
presidential term-he is ominously sileut. Upou
the subject of the Kansas Nebraska bill he says
nothing. * Would he veto a hill repealing it—
would he sauction the re-enactment ot' the Mis
souri Compromise ? To.these questions we have
no answer. IVithout answering them, no candi
date can obtaiu the votes of the South.
To the-proscriptive principles of A note Xo-
tkingim he does indeed pledge himself with
distinctness. Brownlow was probably right in
asserting that he had been regularly initiated as
a member of the fraternity. What now be
comes of the old line Whigs, who, beUevng
him a Whig, were willing to vote for him in
spite of his Know Nothing nomination? One
of them, the editor of the N. Y. Commercial
Advertiser, hitherto enlisted in his support, de
clares off from the advocacy orhis claims. We
quote as follows:
It will be seen that Mr. Fillmore most un
equivocally accepts the Know-Nothing or
American platform and proclaims his adhesion
to that party'and to that party alone. He “takes
occasion to re-jiftirm his full confidence in the
patriotic purposes of that organization,” re-
g ards its existence as a public necessity, and
elleves it, “of all political agencies now exist
ing, to lie alone possessed of power to silence
agitation and restore harmony by its own ex
ample of moderation and forbwiruuce.'* Its lead
ing principles he adopts as his guide. This is
strong language, and not very palatable to Mr.
Fillmore’s Wltlg friends. We bad almost said
more thau this. He seems to us to be discour
teous to the many Whigs and Whig presses,
which, forgetting that Mr. Fillmore hud joined
another party, have expressed their readiness to
support him for the Presidency, his defection
trum the ranks nothwitUstaudmg. We are sur
prised and grieved that Mr.Millmorc, who owes
so much to the Whig party, and whose success
iu the present campaign depends upon the ad
hesion to him of the old line Whigs throughout
the Union, should thus not only entirely disas
sociate himself from bis early and steadfast
friends, but should utterly ignore the very exis
tence of the Whig party ana deny to ft any
power to aid in silencing agitation and restoring
In fact, Mr. FUImorc, in this letter, entirely
and with deliberation, disassociates himself from
the Whig party, solicits no aid from it, for
bears all recognition of it, aud throws himself
uureservedty upon his new asssociates as all
sufficient for Ills support. He known nothing
and will knoio nothing, of any other party.
We repeat, that we are pained at the tone of
this letter,.written as it plainly is, after mature
deliberation. We are pained for the sake of tbe
cause, and of the hi (gating effect which such a
letter must have upon Mr. Fillmore’s prospects,
for we have spoken sincerely when we have ad
vocated his personal fitness for tbe Presidency.
But Mr. Fillmore has virtually declined support
as a Whig, and we certainly are not disposed to
force it upon him. We refer tbe matter now to
the Whigs of the Union, who, we trust, will
promptly meet in national convention, and de
cide what Whigs shall do under the circumstan*
ces. Until then we shall be guided by our own
judgmeut and preserve strict neutrality.

A revolution 18 now Iri progress in this city,
calculated to offset for good or ill the whole so

one of tbe most wmarkable’of any nation or age.
An attempted awMstnatloa of a simple citizen,
who was only conspicuous for biff honesty
and high moral character, was the inciting cause
of this great event.
James King,of Williams,U a native ot George
town, 0. C. He is about thirty five years of age,
with a-tall, commanding form, a lace singular
ly beatiti fill for a man, aud his eyes beaming
with intelligence. Ais family was one of the
best of the District. His father was a leading
member of the Southern division of the Metho
dist Protestaut Church. My impression is that
I saw his death noted about a year since iu a*
After a sketch of Mr. King’s business opera
tions, and his eminent miccess until the impru
dence of an agent made him bankrupt, tiie
writer goes on to say: •
Then Mr. King began to cast about him for
means with whim to purchase his daily bread,
for he was without a dollar. He first thought
of going to tbe mines. At this time it began
to be suspected tliat the creditors of Adams &
Co. were to be swindled out of tho assets of the
house, by J. C. Woods, Cohen, the Receiver, and
other managers* aided by powerful legal talout.
Mr. King, knowing that the 8an Francisco
press lacked the knowledge or the will to ex
pose aud prevent the frauds going on, deter
mined to start a paper, mainly, as it seemed by
its first editorials, for this purpose. His articles
attracted the attention of the thousands of
miners, mechanics, nud merchants who hud
been swindled by Woods, aud tho Bulletin ra
pidly increased-in its circulation aud advertis
ing. Mr. King, honest, frank and strightfor-
ward, thoroughly detesting vice in all its pha
ses, early iu uls editorial career discovered
there were other evils iu society than monetary
ones to be combated. He was possessed of
great moral and physical courage, and was just
the man for the work before him. He went in
to it with a will, and dealt his blows with au
unsparing hand. He commenced an onslaught
upon the rice of our judges and juries, our
bands of ballot-box stufll*rs, our hosts of gam
blers, our scores of dishonest and pettifoggim
lawyers, aud iudecd upon all who hud outragec
and were outraging the public morals. Other
papers bad only dealt in generalities when la
mentingthe vices that were sapping the very
foundation of society.
Tl»e pistol and bowl-knife were too potent to
admit of any other course to the faint-hearted.
But King impaled his victim singly, and by
name, and held him up to the gaze of au indig
nant community. Iu a city like this, where the
vilest criminals, gamblers, shoulder-strikers aud
tradiug politicians hold the majority ol the of
fices, and control nearly all the rest, he had
hosts of enemies. But the honest portion of the
people, particularly the laboring classes, liter
ally worshipped him. He enlarged his paper,
which now had doubled thu circulation uf an
other in the State, and was making money
rapidly. To his honor he religiously upplied
every dollar of his surplus, after deducting suf
ficient for his family expenses, to the payment
of his debts, until about six weeks since he had
discharged thd Whole of them.
On Wednesday lost, at 5 o’clock, the whole
city was astooBaed at the report that James
King, of William,had been shot dead 4u one of
the most public streets, by James P. Cassey, a
felon, who had served two years iu the State
Prison at Sing Sing. Gasey was known us a
Successful ballot-box stutter—so successful, in
deed, that on couuting the votes in his ward, it
was found he was elected a Supervisor of this
county, although he was uot eveu known to the
voters as a candidate for the office. About
eighteeu months since lie had had a murderous
affray growing out of this political cheutcry.
His uarae was a prominent one among the
gamblers and shoulder-strikers that have ul-
way* ruled this city, and every-fashionable har
lot s door Hew open us if by magic when tiie
well-known kuock of .la*. P. Gasey echoed
through its hails.
Strange to say, this brute was also known us
the editor and proprietor of a Sunday paper,
which made great pretentions to respectability.
No man of bis class, with a tithe of his influ
ence, had ever been punished in this city l»v law
for murder. Casey knew he could kill King
with impunity if he could be kept out of the
hands of the mob long enough after the com
mission of the deed to seeksafesy in the jail;
and for this he-had provided by having some
few resolute frieuds about him, and a carriage
In waiting. He did not dream the excitement
against him would be converted into a feeling
of such depth and breadth us to lead the pco-
K le to usurp the laws; but in this he was wo-
illy mistaken. It would be tedious to narrate
all the interesting circumstances connected with
the action of the people; aud besides, your San
Francisco exchanges will be filled w : iih tbe-m.
But I will say that history affords no parallel to
the wondrous events that have resulted from
this attempted assassination. Such calm, cool,
deliberate action of tbe people under such ex
citing circumstances, und to such an important
eud, was never before known in this or any
other country. Yon could mark in every
man’s countenance a settled, fixed determina
tion to avenge Mr. King's wrongs, and the
many wrongs society has suffered; but there
wa9 no sudden outbreak—nothing that indi
cate! a mob spirit, in the movements of mein
Every man felt that the time had come for
action—but no man dreamed of disturbing the
public peace. All saw that an issue was to be
made between the two extremes of society—the
bad and the good—and the latter deliberately
begun the work.
The day after the assassination they met
in council. An executive committee, said to
consist of twenty-nine, was appointed, and the
names of citizen* who came endorsed with a
good character, were rapidly enrolled. On Fri.
day several thousand names were on the lists.
It was known that the Slieriff had introduced
companies of armed militia into the Jail, and
posted guard* on the tops of the adjoining
houses, and that he had given out he would de
fend the prison with his life and the lives of his
men. It was known that he had pierced the
walls o! the prison for cannon and musketry to
bear upon the citizens who had organized to
take Casey out of his hands and to execute him.
But there was no flagging on the part of the
On Saturday morning dray loads of arms and
ammunition were passing through the different
avenues on their way to the committee’s depot*.
Cannon were rolled through the streets to the
headquarters. The people filled all the streets
where these warlike preparations were going
forward, night and day.
Saturday, the enrolling of names was kept 11;
till dark, but uone out of tbe many thousam
who signed, save the Executive Commitle,
knew what was to be done. All had implicit
confidence in the wisdom of the leaders, and all
had made up their minds to obey orders.
On Sunday the divisions began to assemble
at their armories. Just after the commence
ment of the morning church service, compact
masses of citizen iufantry were seen marching
from different points towards Broadway, in
which the jail was situated. This force num
bered 1,500 bayonets. Presently followed a
company of 100 rifles, then followed the artil
lery and a part of a company of home. Five
huudred men armed with revolvers, also passed
iuto Broadway. Eight hundred remained ut
the armories as a reserve. The spectacle was
a mast solemn and imposing one. There was
no noise—no confusion. No bugle's blast or
beat of drum was beard. Nothing broke the
stillness of that Sabbath morning, save the
heavy tread of armed men. The streets along
the line of march were almost chocked up by
thousands of spectators. Men lifted their hats
as the military filed through the streets in re.
verauce to them.
Soon the iieoble covered all the hills, steeples
and houses iu the vicinity of the jail. More
thau two thousand armed men were quickly
drawn u» ou every side of the prison, ns if for
siege. The rifles were posted on the roofs of
the houses overlooking the jail. A heavy brass
piece A was deliberately loaded iu front of tbe jail,
and pointed dead at the great iron door. A
man stood beside it with match alight. Stones
were carried ul> tiie steps and rammed into the
gun-ports of the prison. Then came the de
mand for the prisoner. The city military and
the sheriff's guard having refused to act, re-
sistance was Impossible. Casey was delivered
up, placed ironed iu a carriage, and born to tbe
committee’s rooms under a strong guard. Tiie
mass of tbe military still remained in i>asition
around the jail. In one hour, a delegation from
the committee again entered the jail, demanded,
-aud took away Charles (fora, the murderer of
(ten. ltichardsou, Marsha 1.
At 6 o’clock the military were all dismissed
for the night except H00 meu, detailed to guard

The curtain has dropped upon another act of

dead! He expired yefiterday|afternoon at half*

,,0 The Bail of Clarendon-M.v Lords. 1 am
anxious to make Mime observations on the ear
ly part of the speech of the noble earl, but they
shall bo very few, because I am deeply convinc
ed of the inconvenience-and possibly tbe
danger—of such a discussion at the present twv
raent. (Hear, hear.) Indeed, so deeply convlnc-.
ed nm i of this that I shall refrain irom making
even u single observation ou several remark*
which fell from the noble earl,'and-which I
heard with regret; but, still, I am so anxious
that there should be nn mistake as to the feel
ing* of her Majesty’s Government with respect,
to tho United State*, or a* to the policy which
they have pursued, and Which they will con
tinue to pursue, that I must address a few word*
to your lordships.
And. my lords, l will, in the first place, say
that, as Tar as I myself um concerned—ami 1
speak also In the name of all the member* of
her Majesty’s government—I do not believe
there can be the .‘ lightest, doubt of my and their
desire to maintain unimpaired the closest, the
most cordial, and the most sincere relations
with tho United States. (Cheers.)
I believe no men can be more convinced than
wvurc infill of our interest and our dutyto main
tain those friendly relations with the American
government aud people, aud a* far us l am con
cerned, linviug tilled tbe office of Foreign Sec
retary for some years, 1 can conscientiously af
firm that neither l»y word nor by deed ha* any
thing been done which could create a just
cause of irritation between tho two countries.
(Cheers.3 The noble lord has alluded to the two
point* ot difference between the Uuited Shite*
and Great Britain, viz: tiie question of recruit
ment, and the question of Central America.
With regard to the recruitment, that question
entirely arose from proposal* made to us with
respect to person.* desirous of entering into the
Queen’* service. Wo did uot even contemplate
uceeptuig any of those offers without due refer
ence to the neutrality laws of the Uuited States,
which, I entirely agree with the noble lord, it
is as much our Interest and duty to uphold a* it
cai. be tho.-c of the Uuited State* themselves
It is not ourduty, indeed, to encroach upon
the laws 01 any other eouutry ? but we have an
interest—a British interest—in the neutrality
laws of the United States being maintained.
The maintenance, therefore, of those laws was
our first thought, ns they constituted the prin
eipul part of our instructions ; and the moment
uot the least probability of his doing so, Tiie
Journal very -truly observes that Ids removal
would be u serious loss to the denomination in
this State. Wc hone such un event may never
take place. No friend of Mercer Uni vend ty
could sec him retire from the Presidency with
out the most profound regret.

The Montreal Commercial says:
“While the American Government is doing
its best to provoke u quarrel with Englaud, a
state ofauarchy sufficient to engage uillts ener
gies exists in its owu dominions. One thiug
only prevents a war with Eugland, one only
one stays a civil war in Kansas. The Ameri
can Eagle is a half breed between a canon
vulture and a dunghill rooster. He lack.* the
courage necessary for lair combat, aud lie crows
the loudest when furtherest from the enemy.
Tiie men of the revolution are dead; their in
ferior children of 1812 ure in their dotage; the
present generation, raised 011 hot cakes aud
sweet fixing, und stimulated with tobacco juice,
i* all talk and no cider .as destitute of the st.irn -
un on which courage is founded ns its mothers
are of flesh. *
• “Look at the women; cliaiiuing at sixteen,
faded at twenty,toothless at twenty five lidenus
at thirty .dividing their time between their ruckl
ing chair* aud their beds,incapable of exertion,
incompetent to exercise, ever ailing, listle.%
lazy, straight up and down, like an old fash

and healthy bloml trom immigration, would dis

“ The moral detieienoes of the people are
equal to the physical; the boys slang eaeh other,
but never fight: the men assassinate, hut never
come to blows; they talk terrible thing* iu public
meeting* and confine their terrible doing* to a
concealed shot or a sudden* stab at an unpre
pared enemy. Ministers of tbe Gospel advise
bloodshed^ and take up subscription* for rifles:
everything necessary tor a combat is sent to the
scene of contention but pluck: the men are
white livered, and afraid of each other: and if
one party advances, the other runs away; houses
are plundered and burned, and unarmed peo
ple butchered. If the assaulted pick tip
age and advance again, the nsailants rim in
their turn, and like scene* follow their footstep*.
Indignation meeting* are held in all the cities
of all the States, money is subscribed for arms
and ammunition, for food and clothing—patri
otic orations thunder from the rostrum, aud
incendiary* declamations from the pulpit—the
North is ‘about to vindicate its liberties, the
East to fly to the assistance of it* children, out
raged liberty is to lm appeased with tiie blood
of the marauder*, the freedom of the soil of
Kansas to lm relieved from the opprobrious
despotism of it* invaders. Now surely there

f KPTEd Robbery.—A very daring
waamade, on Wednesday night 1
cditple of iron Bafea in the store
re. B. Duck & Co., by blowing
them open with gunbowder. The em ranee
was effected by prizng open the iron shut
tern at the back of the store; and from the
altered position of the safes, which were
very, heavy,!!.U suppoeed that there were
several persons in the party.' The ex per)
merit* Mem to* have commenced with the
larger iofeV * Tt was turned over, lock side
up, the powder inserted, and the door
forced open some t%o or three inches
Chisels were then applied, but without
success. The robbers then took down the
smuller safe from its stand, and this time
were more successful, it being literally
blow’ll to pieces: the ceiling was
broken overhead, either by the concussion
or the flying fragments.
The money in it, however, gold to H
considerable amount, was left untouched
but the papers it contained were just !«•'
ginning to take fire, when the police arriv
ed and stayed proceedings. It is supposed
that the rohliera retired to await the
effect of the report upon the town; and
as it turued out', tliat ( fleet was fatal to
their enterprise. 'Hie noise (ff the report
is represented ns not having lx*ou v,. rv
loud. The demolished safe was au old
one, and had been in pos'fiessionof Messrs
srs. D. & Co. about twenty years. Culm,,,
i ascertained that the recruitment could not
be carried 011 without the danuer—not on the
part of our agent*- but of petal ns who ns-
sumed to bo our ageuts ut violating tho neutrality
laws of the United Statet, wo agreed to relin
quish the .scheme. Your lordships have seen
from tiie paper.* which have been laid on the
tublo, that there is nothing which could be ex•
peeled from one nation toward anothir, from
one Government toward another, from one
gentleman toward another, that we have uot
done or offered to do in order to afford repara
tion to the United States for any ofl'euce how
ever unintentional on our pavt—which they can
couceive’.has been committed. (Hear.)
My lords, the la»t despatch that was written
ou this subject, which was u resume of the
whole matter, in answer to the long desputch
of Mr. Many, can hardly vet have reached the
United States: und therefore upon tiie question
of tiie recruitment I am exeiedingly anxious
not to say any more at present. But as far a*
I have been able to ascertain what are the im
pressions which that despatch has produced in
this countav, J think the gam ut opinion is that
wc have offered a complete satisfaction lo the
Government of the United States, aud that the
only thing which we certainly have not done
ha* been to recall Mr. <'rampfon and Hie con
suls, because we do not think they have merited
that censure and that punidiment. [Cheers.]
There would have been no shortcoming on
the part of her Majesty's Government if
we 4 had seen reason to adopt a contrary
course, or no hesitation to deal severely
with any agent who should so far have
forgotten Ills duty and been unmindful of hi*
instructions as to Violate tiie laws of the. Unit
ed States: but being convinced that that had
not been done, and having in our possession the
means i»r proving "to the United State.* that it
was not done, I think nobody will icauireoj us
to sacrifice our agents and to purchase a con
ciliation with the United States by doing that
which tcould be both shabby and dishonorable
Earl Grey thought it was important, ai the
present moment, that an assurance should lie
given—as he trusted they might consider it
had been given, that the increase of force in
Cauada had no reference whatever to any re
cent discussion with the United Stales. ( ’Hear.’’
from Lord Panmnve) lu his opinion, this was
the more necessary, because ou the last occa
sion when this subject was discussed the noble
Secretary for War used a somewhat unhappy
phrase in saying that the force which had been
A Beaftitl'i. Sentiment.---Shortly before

“ Life bears us on like the stream of a mighty

young head*, the flowers on the brink seem to
offer themselves to our young hands: we are
happy in the hope, and we grasp eagerly at the

No one supposed the United States was to lie

erable alarm would* have been excited in hi*
mind,after the recent discussion iu America, if
lie had been informed that the increase of force
had any reference to either aggressive or de

United States could trad to any serious results.

He did not see how it was possible that di
plomatic servant* of the British Crown could
be employed iu anv manner with reference to

some justification lor the complaints that had
been made by tho United States Government.
He thought if the proceedings of Mr. Crumpton

making known the desire of the British Gov
ernment to raise a force for the Russian war iu
