The one in our office at 3 o’clock stood at 92—some others in town, we under stand, were 4 or 5 degrees higher. Since Saturday the air has keen considerably cooler A fine shower of rain fell on Sunday; and the days have been cloudy and pleasant since. A small shower a Iso yesterday. A citizen from the lower part of the county says that during the shower on Sunday, hail stones fell in his yaid as large as partridge eggs. The hail was pretty general, judging lrom the coolness in the atmos phere and from what vve learn. The Macon Band, under the direction of Capt. T. L. Smith, left town on Tuesday on a Musical cxcur sion up the country, with the intention of giving acoff cert or two at Alliens duriug Commencement week, and in the intervening villages on their way up. The object of tiie trip is one of recreation more than profit The Band is composed of respectable young gentle* men of this city; and the 'profits of the excursion, if any should remain, are to be devoted to benevolent pur. poses. This Band accompanied the Macon Volun teers on their fete hazardous tour in Florida; and was with that eorpS in the hard fought battle of the Witb- lacoochee swamp ; where, we arc told, the murderous Seminoles found their music awfully touching ! We trust the citizens of the several villages where the Band proposes performing, will duly appreciate the laudable motive that carries it amongst them, and will manifest on this occasion a not lees liberal spirit. Stand up to your Fodder ! The Messenger goes in for If bite Oats no longer; he says he has examine)! some samples of black oats, and found them to contain 248 grains to the head—while the best heads of com mon oats (meaning White,) produced but 84 grains!— He might have added, that a great many of die White heads, on being exmuiued closely, are filed with cheat • “Any one (he says,) who will try die black oats, will readily decide'ou die difference of profit between them and the common ( White) kind.” So we said, long a- go; White oats won’t do in Georgia—they neither suit our climate, nor soil; end the people won’t “stand up” to such fodder. The Messenger should have found it out before. Give us the grain with full heads aud sound kernel—die Van Bureu oaL forever! DINNER TO THECRAWFORDVOLUXTEERS , Agreeable to previous arrangements, on Saturday, the 23d instant, a splendid dinner was given to Capt. Carr’s company of Crawford Volunteers. The place selected for the entertainment was the spring near die “old camp ground.” Much credit is due to die two Mrs. Carrs and Mrs. Bacon,and Messrs Henry Crow ell, jr. Perry Carr and Joseph Bradford, Fsqrs. for the handsome style in which the dinner was served up.— The uurnber of persons present, including l>od> sexes, was esdmated at between five and six hundred. Age, youth, wealth, beauty and fashion were there, to do ho nor to the gallant volunteers and iheir no less gallant commander. As soon as the managers announced that the table was ready, Capt. Hetiry Crowell, was u- nanimously requested to act as President, and Ephraim .otn • - is more. They had 1ctdy l.fOO under nrtus who .iioall stiff m the nation; aud there are a large number besides residing m Tttladega, Chambers aud other upper counties who tookuo pan in the campaign. Last* Wedaesday- night two Indians jumped from a window of a third story in ibis pluce, and effected their escape- They were badly wonndeu by tbe sentinels, as they run off. One of them was ne.yt day arrested by a negro & brought bark, and w as in a numerous crowd untied by the ne gro. No sooner was ho relased. than he gashed the uegro with a knife, though not severely, and immediately cut his own thruatfroin ear to ear, aud expired in a moment. Since our lust, auothur (a third) party of Creeks were brought to our. town op their march to the West. They consist of about 500 men, women and children.

Mr. Bartlett—I have been looking on, not an uncon 1 rrrut'il spectator, to some movements made by the Kd- i Hor of tiie Federal Union and two writers, one signing I himself “Oconee” the other “Baldwin." The first cauiu out June 2d, and had something like this apper taining to it, that it should be published until Dr. Fort ' slu uiii he forced to answer it. The Doctor is too well I known ill this State, particularly to his Utiiou friends, to make it necessary lor him to answer such a piece.— Delias administered the affairs of tiie Bank so far as the public are acquainted, with saU'sfaction to all parties in the Slute. That Bauk belongs to the State and uot to a party When any gentle man, in propria persona, comes forward ana makes a charge against tin: Doctor for plficial misconduct, then will .be time enough for him to ccme out with bis vindication. The Uuioii men, as far as I know or be lieve, with the c\peption of a few about that focus of envy (Milledgeville) are perfectly satisfied that this at- tark isriot made particularly on account of Porter’s appointment, for he is said to be a gentleman and would have made a tir-t rate Cashier if permitted to remain, but that that appointment is made use of to vent spleen which had been accumulating long before. I do not know who Oconee or Baldwin are, but I know who Mr. Cuthbert is. I wag friendly to him, (and still wish him well,) long before he went to Mil ledger ille, and had some opportunity to know how and on what terms he went to that place ; and when I first saw the piece of 2d June, which has been in the paper from that time for a whole month, I thought my friend Joint A. would rnn the risk of being thought ungrate ful; or at least that people might think he overrated his own and his immediate associates’ strength; for they might not be able to put Dr Fort down; for from some editorial remarks, (which I cannot quote, as I have mislaid the paper,) be ushers forth this piece Oconee as if there was something dreadful behind. I thought then Col. you were like tbe cow, who gives a good pail of milk and then kicks it over. I thought how you had struggled and given all the assistance in your pow er to help your party until they have got the nscenden Now will von sport with that ascendency, as you yet compre hensive view of the causes v/hicb led to die iate Creek War, and paid u just and merited con-pliment to the patriotism and bravery of Capt. Carr and his compa ny. At4 o’clock, P. M. the cloth was removed and the following volunteer toasts drunk: By Capt. Henry Crowell, -^resident. The Craw ford Volunteers: although unnoticed in ail the bullet ins of the Commanders, are yet held in high estimation by their county-men. Ephraim Heard. Vico President.

The pluiutifis were citizens of Virginiq. and the defendants of Pennsylvania. The plaintiffs were ovvuors of two, negro slaves, who absconded and came to Venango county in this State, where they'were prrusted, aud, after a judicial investigation, handed over to their ovtn- ers. On their way home through Brookvilie, Jef ferson couuty. on tho eveuiugof riuuday, tho I4iii September, 1832, the negroes vv.'.re placed in the jail for tho night. A largo aud excited crowd col lected, the defendants being among them, and lea ders of the multitude. A singular coulrivance for their liberation was devised. A slmm prosecution against the mas ters for trave[liug on Sunday was held before -us to afford the slaves time to escape beyond tbe r«-. i: if their owners. The whole contrivance seems to have been actually carried into effect, and the negroes, although pursued by their mas ters for several days, were never ret3keu.
