ALT. HAIL STEWART!
The battle has been fought, the contest is ovei;,
and Stewart has gloriously triumphed beyond our
jnrwt sanguine expectations. With, (according
to the nett calculation of our opponents,) a ma
j°r;ty of 103 votes against ns, vre have elected a
■State Rights Senator, by a majority of 29 votes,
and with a young nag that never run over any
track before, have given their swiftest horse a hard
r; ice, and carried our Congressional Ticket by an
average majority of 19 votes! Surely oar oppo
nents must have “reckoned without their host.”
But the contest was hard, as every man buck
-1" 1 on bis armour and wsnt forward to the con
flict; the former and lepiated vict. r e of our
opponents enabled them to inarch forward with
certain prospects of success—while the friends of
• tate Rights, in consequence of their former de
te.its, met the crisis expecting nothing else but
fit n their fate would boas usual, determined, how
e'er, never to give over the struggle, as long as
‘‘ ll "ms the least grounds to hope for victory;
‘"'l it, after so many conflicts and so many mis*
ri l b,e defeats, they have at last, gloriously tri
nnipned, their opponents need not he astonished
, 1 ’* shouts of joy aud rejoicing should be
ford in the camp.
e congratulate our friends on this glorious
tnuiuph of their principles, resting under the firm
! |j Cl ’ so long as wc discharge our duty faith
•v’ victory will always perch upon our banner,
ceitam success crown our every effort.
. WE L L DON E B 188.
edo not know when we w*ere more rejoiced
“in when the glad news saluted our ears that our
,rie!ll 's had succeeded in Bibb. Ever since 1834,
i '^I'n 1 ' n l he State Rights party were defeated by a
' Cl ' i ar gc majority.) they have been on the rise
ap, i are at last enabled to shout a complete and
hiuinphant victory. We must be allowed to con
*ritulate our friends in Bibb, upon this glorious
atorythey have achieved over the machinations
’ opponents, and hope that whenever they
them at the ballot box they may always
I )r ° v c alike succesful.
The news f.om every section of the State which
has come to hand, is highly gratifying and cheer
ing to the (riends of State Rights, and by the in
creased majorities to the cause, they have every
reason to calculate on the certain success of their
entire Congressional Ticket, as well as a majority
in the Legislature. In this calculation liow’ever,
we may be mistaken, as there is very little calcula
tion to be made upon the Cherokee counties, but
unless the changes have been very great against us
we think we may fully calculate ou certain success
throughout the State.
We were fearlul that our opponents had been
but too success!ul in their efforts to divide and dis
tract the State Rights party, but we are more than
rejoiced that our fears appear to have been with
out foundation, as in the counties of which
we w are the most apprehensive of danger, our
friends have carried every thing before them.—
W * begin to learn however, that the more noise
our opponents make, th>‘ more desperate and hope
less their case; and hereafter, when they again
commence blustering and bullying, we shall take
it tor granteJ that their prospects are bad.
Now that th» State elections are over, it is high
ly necessary that the people of Georgia should
turn their attention to the next Presidency, as
they cannot canvass too well the claims of those
«’!io may be brought before them far their suffra
Great exertions are beiug made by the friends
of Mr. Van Burenin Georgia to carry the State
m his favor, by endeavoring to impress it upon the
minds of the people that those opposed to the lit
tle magician will give their support to Henry Clay,
and then hold up to their view the political char
acter of this statesman in the most unenviable light
their imaginations can conceive. But this trick
on their part to carry Georgia in favor of the
Prince of Kit Jerhook must fail, as Henry Clay is
as unpopular with the State Rights party as he is
with them, and between Henry Clay and Martin
Van Buren the. State Rights party will never
choose. They are both as obnoxious to their prin
ciples as Federalism and Consolodation can make
them, and to support either would he a derelic
tion from principle altogether unpardonable.
Much has been said about a choice of evils, of
which we are sick and tired. Are we always to
be choosing between evils ? Must the South al
ways submit to the choice of Northern politicians
and support the candidates nominated by them
whether those candidates advocate Southern prin
ciples or no, because she may not perhaps be able
to elect candidates of her own? So long as she
thus succumbs to the will of those who attempt
to dictate in this matter, she never will, she never
ra« elect the men of her choice, and until she
bursts the fetters with which she is now bound, a
choice of evils will alwavs be her lot.
w e some weeks ago announced our determi
nation, at the suggestion of a cotemporary, to sup
port those two distinguished statesmen and patri
ots, ROB’T. Y. HAYNE, of South Carolina,
and JOIIX TYLER, of Virginia, for these high
and responsible offices, in the faith hi 1 discharge of
which the South has so much interest. Let the
people of the South but support such men,
and they will discharge their duty to themselves,
their children and their country. By a different
course they will endanger the freedom of the
country and the prosperity of the nation.
We hear a great many complaints from QUV sub-,
scribcrs whose papers are seat by the eastern
route, that they receive them very irregularly,
and sometimes not at all. We cannot give any
reason why such a state of things should exist, as
tlie Mirror is regularly mailed and to our certain
knowledge sent from this post office at the proper
time. The fault, however, must be in the negli
gence or wilful corruptions of some of the l’ost
Masters on the route ; and we would here take
occasion to inform Post Masters who do not sub
scribe to the paper, that it is very dangerous to be
too familiar with those belonging to other people,
as we understand a certain Post Master, (not a
hundred miles from Lumpkin,) for making rath
er free with a paper belonging to one of om sub
scribers, has become very sorely afflicted, so much
so that recovery is thought doubtful! Post .Mas

and Sentinel office, dated the 2d instant, says.
The election in this county yesterday resulted
in the success of the entire State Rights ticket lor
the Legislature, by majorities of from seventy-five
to one hundred and fifty, and of the Congress
ticket by majorities of from one hundred and fifty
to two hundred. We kept our paper open until
near daylight this morning, in order to give the
returns, but are not able to do so with correctness
except at the city box.
The Columbus Enquirer of Thursday last,
says, "So fir, the news is of the most cheering
character. From Richmond, Baldwin, Greene,
Bibb and Monroe, we learn of the success of the
entire State Rights ticket. Iu Jones, Talbot and
Stewart, we have gained three, one in each. In

Sr. Augustine, Sept. 15..
Tie Indians. —Ou Tuesday night last, about
11 o’clock, Lieut. May, in pissing to his com
mand at Fort Peyton, heard the driving of hor
ses. He pushed on, and had just crossed the last
bridge, when he heard the noise of a horse close
following, and reining up, it passed a little ahead.
To the hail, “who are you-—speak or I'll fire?”
receiving no answer, at the distance- of three pa
ces he deliberately discharged a pistol at a person
who was leaning forward in the act of slqtping
from the horse. This occurred within thirty
yards of the fort, so near that the words were
heard within. The sentinel immediately hailed,
and was ordered by the Lieutenant to stand to
his post. The following morning the horse en
tered with an Indian’s sash in his mouth for a bri
dle. and a blanket on his back.
1 lie pistol had been loaned with three buck
shot and a ball; the ball was found io have struck
the horse high io the shoulder, just behind the
nark ; the shot are supposed to have taken effect
upon the rider, from his position at the moment
ol being fired upon. By judges of the different
Indian’s characters, Wild Cat is believed to be
this bold fellow, whose object seems to have been
to approach without noise, strike the passenger
with a bludgeon, and take his scalp, without alarm
ing the garrison ; ;:»d had it not been for the noise
necessarily made in passing the bridge the pro
ject is likely to have succeeded. The pale-face
is allowed to have acted with a boldness arid ad
dress equal to the impudent courage of the red
In the morning, Capt. Miekler, with the vol
unteers, and Lt. May, with some regulars, fol
lowed them to the South. Capt. M. in taking a
course to surround or cut them off, fell into the
regular trail ahead, and with a few of the most
advanced of his company, discovered the Indians
in a spur of Cypress Swamp, near thirty miles
from the post. They had disposed of themselves
with a large pond in front, with a dense and ex
tensive swamp behind. The parties saw each
other at nearly the same moment ; the Indians
who were seen were in number seven or eixhr;
they brandished their rides in the air, giving their
war-hoop, disappeared into the pnlmettoes. The
Captain restrained his men from following and
firing, as the Indians were two hundred yards off,
aad were apparently making ready to give battle.
But no more was seen of them, and pursuit in the
country in which they were, would have been
useless. They left behind a few articles, two
skins of honey and their horses. The horses, it

and taken from the King’s Landing only about a

Dear Sir —One hundred Tallahassee Indians

From Texas. —The steam packet Colombia,
from Galveston, arrived last night, brings Us the
Houston Telegraph to the sthiast.
The elections had taken place. The Telegraph
states that in Houston they were conducted in a
highly creditable manner, though much excite
ment prevailed. The following is the result in
that county.—For President—Lamar, 67<V; Wil

Mosely Baker was elected to Congress from

Col/Morehouse had returned from tlie West.
He states that the Mexicans who had visited the
bay of Corpus Christi, retired in a very precipitate
manner, leaving about 100 barrels of Hour, and the
boilers aud other apparatus of a steam engine, ap
parently new, upou the beach. The latter was
probably intended for the mines in the interior of
Mexico. The Lipans had all returned to the Rio
Grande. Trading parties of Mexicans were almost
dailv arriving at Bexar front Laredo and other
settlements of the Rio Grande. They, however,
brought but little specie, the trade consisting
chiefly in the exchange of horses, sugar and flour,
for tobacco and various articles of merchandise.
Ammunition and fire arms tit every description
were freely exchanged with the Mexican/traders
by the cittizens cf Bexar. The Cumanches had
again broken the treaty recently made with the
Mexicans, and within:: few weeks past committed
many depredations iu the vicinity of Preidio de
A gentleman, recently arrived at Houston fYum
the East, stated that the trifling difficulties withl
the haudfui of Mexicans, at Nacogdoches, had
entirely teased, and complete tranquility was res

The Cumanches, according to the Telegraph
of tilt Ist, had madeseveral attacks upon the fron
tier settlements, but had been defeated in every
skirmish that had taken place, and it was suppos
ed they would soon be tired of hostilities.
A company of young men had recently returned
from an exploring expedition to the region near
the mouth of the San Baba. They foliowed the
course of that stream to the distance of 40 miles
above its junction with the Colorado. They rep

ever seen They found some specimens of gold
and silver in the mountains, and state that the

The young republic appears to be in a very

no doubt awaits her.
From the V. O. Commercial Bulletin.
Nacogdoches, 29tli Aug. 1838.
To the Editor of the Bulletin:
As many exaggerated reports of the recent diffi
culties to this portion of Texas have been, and I
have no doubt will continue to be, circulated, I
feel it a duty incumbent on me to correct them.
1 have not tuns to enter into a full detail of all the
circumstances, but it is sufficient for tny present
purpose to give the general outlines. We have
in the immediate vicinity of this place a Mexican
population of about two hundred and fifty men,
able to bare arms; a large portion of these men
have from the commencement of our struggle
been opposed to us, and have carried on a secret
correspondence with the enemy. The authorities
of Mexico have for the last year or two had offi
cers and agents, as well amongst the Indians re
siding in Texas as upon the United States fron
tier, urging them to commence bostillities against
the whites. In this they are greatly aided by the
Mexicans resident here, and had beyond question
obtained from the Indiaus promises to engage in
the war. When the Mexicans here took up arms,
they immediately called upon the Indians to join
them ; many of whom did and all were preparing
to do so. They pitched their camp at the house
of one of the chiefs of the Cherokee nation; but
the timely appearance of an efficient force intim
idated the Indians, who immediately withdrew
from them, and sent the chiefs to our camp to
hold talks of peace. A large portion of the Mexi
cans then returned : some are here, and some have
gone to Louisiaona; and about sixty of their lea
ding men have gone to the Prairie Indians. The
Indians in our vicinity profess now the greatest
friendship; and in view.of an efficient force, which
is now being raised, 1 Have not the least doubt
will remain so.
