General Rl,lot Lee, who, In a. recent jour
ney over the plains, was attacked by the In
diana, wewmlod and supposed to be dead, has
writrea a fetter to the St. Louis Union. ' He
describe his escape, which, under the oir
temstaflces, waaa'tnost remarkable one.
tta says:
)u the lth of July & party of us, four
teen ii pttraber,. ware attacked by about 150
Indian's, oh the head waters of Red River,
andeear the Retoan mountains. We had
been encamped about one hour, and just in
the act of eating our dinner, when we were
alatmed by the Indians, while they were in
the act of Tunning off with our animals, which
Were gracing a short distance from us. As
they passed us, we fired on them ; but thoy
were so far orTthat otir shots had no effect,
tn about twenty minutes they all returned,
surrounded oar camp, and set fire to the grass
all around us, with the view of driving us
from our position, which we were inclined to
keep, with a view of saving our baggage, or
a portion of it. But in this we were foiled
We, however, defended ourselves for about
four hours, firing at the enemy every oppor
tunity we had. Our position not being a good
one, they had the decided advantage of us.
We defended ourselves until five of our par
ty were slightly wounded, and one killed.
We now determined to retreat to tho moun
tains, as the Inst and only alternative.
On retreating, 1 received two shots one in
the left thigh, the ball passing through the
thigh, though fortunately not breaking the
bone J the other ou the middle finger of the
left hand. Charles Town, who was ahead of
me, received a shot in one of hi9 legs, which
broke it. He, of course, fell, ami not being
able to walk, was left to the mercy of tho
Indians. That is the Inst 1 saw of him. There
was a Spaniard who was shot in the kidneys
before we loft camp, who also was left. Our
lumber now consisted of eleven, eight of us
rounded, all of whom succeeded in making
jur escape. Night came on ; we travelled
intil we came to water, when we huddled
lurselvcs as near together as possible, for
ho purposo of resting and trying to sleep,
laving lost every thing save what we had on
ur backs, we suffered much from cold, and
ould not sleep. The next day we move 1
ff up the mountain, where we cached cur
sives until night, being afraid to travel in
10 day time. On the night of tho 20th wo

URNma or the temple at nauvoo.
Nauvoo, III. Oct. 11, 1848.
The "Mormon Temple1' in this city was set
on fire on Mouduy morning; last and burned
down. The fire was set in tho belfry about
2 o'clock in the morning. No efTort was made
to stop the progress of the flames, the people
being stupefied with horror and amazement
at tB Vandalism that would lay in ruins one
ef the- most magnificent structures in the
country, erected' at an expense of $200,000.
' Nothing now remains of the edifice, which
was the pride and' boast of a deluded people,
but the blackened walls, and the few Mor
mons who are about heie, breathe in whispers
tHe most terrible vengeance. The Temple
had just been leased by the Trustees for the
purpose of being converted into an institution
f learning-and the agent of the lessees, was
t have taken, possession on the morning it
ww bamed. 1
Jki double curse now rests on this ill-fated
city;. "She character which it hat so long

James Covert, the newly elected Sheriff, of
this county, and Mr. Charles Weaver, the
Commissioner elect, have entered upon the

kind disposition of these gentlemen, we
have no doubt they will make obliging of
ficers, and render satisfaction to the people
of the county.
IC7" We refer our readers to an excellent
piece of poetry on our first page by Mrs.
A. M.F.Annan.
KF The jour Shoemakers of this place,
during the past week, struck for higher
wages. We have not been informed whe
ther the employers come to terms with
On Tuesday, the 7th of November, the
voters of this country are to exercise the
independent right of Freemen. There can
be no one who is not fully aware of the im
portance of his vote. A single vote has,
in numerous instances, elected men to the
most, important stations. Let no democrat,
then, if possible, fail to exercise the inesti
mable privilege of speaking his sentiments
through the ballot box The close vote in
the late contest should urge every man to
his post. Although our candidate for Go
vernor is defeated, it must be remembered
that we have a democratic majority of 4-,-536
on the Congressional vote; that we
have a majority of 2,700 for our Canal
Commissioner, and that we have a majority
of about 2,000 on our Legislative ticket.
This, indeed, presents an encouraging state
of affairs to the democracy, and shows that
the result in this State is not a matter of
doubt if every man docs his duty.
HT"! The editor of the Miltonian thinks
it remarkably strange that we should speak
well of Governor Johnston, and 'the Hn.
Jas. Cooper. Thvre are many persons who
think it little less than sacrilege to speak
well of a political opponent, even after the
election. The editor of the Miltonian,
however, though a senator, is excusable on
account of his extreme youth. There is,
therefore, ample room for improvement.
In the benate Chamber he will come in
contact with larger and older bodies. The
attrition may liberalise as well as enlighten
him. Hard rubbing sometimes effects
polish on the crudest material.
The True Democrat, a paper pub
lished by a couple of fellows who set them
selves down at Pottsville, some months
since, presumes to read us a lecture, for
asserting that the cause of our defeat was
the tariff question. The editors are said
to be young men, which is probable. And
that they are somewhat green, is also very
evident from their own columns. In the
very next column they acknowledge that
"hundreds and thousands of persons voted
for Wm. F. Johnston, on the questions ot
a tariff and free soil." In regard to their
remarks in relation to our vote and the de
feat of Judge Longstreth, we have only to
say, that they are as ridiculous as they are
false. Ignorance is sometimes, of itself, ex.
cusable, but when connected with impu
dence and falsehood, it is wholely unpar
donable. The State Central Committee
should award to this valiant pair, a leatJxr
medal, for the fruits of their valuable ser
vices in Schuylkill County, and for their
persevering and consistent stupidity.
O" The Miltonian announces the ap
pointment of Charles W. Tharp, of Milton
Prosecuting Attorney for this County,
07" F&ee Sou. in tub South. It is said
that Van Buren and Adams will receive
pretty large vote in North Carolina. In
Virginia a ticket for this party has been
formed, with an elector for each district,
which was, at first very difficult to obtain.
E7" Datb or Baio. Gm. Kht. Gen
Stephen W. Kearney, the conqueror of New
Mexioo and California, died- on Wednesday
last in Bt. Louie. He wasa native of Newark,
N. J., and died in the 55th year of his age. -
The Miltonian affects to discredit our
statement that Mr. Bright run ahead of the
democratic ticket in Dauphin County, be
cause 1 we said the wAole ticket. We of
course did not look below Senators, to coun
ty officers, such as director of the Poor, &c,
to which the editor refers us. We refer
red to the vote for Governor, Congress and
Canal Commissioner. Such petty quibbling
should be beneath the dignity, ot a Sen.
ator. Mr. Frick should not be so sensitive
on the' subject. His friends here think he
did remarkably well in running only 118
votes behind the ticket.
. ffy" Hon. David Wilmot and John Van
Boxen, There it rumor afloat in the po
litical circles that these two gentlemen in
tend supporting Cass and Butler for the
Presidency. It is said that Mr. Wilmot
has written a letter to Job Mann, of Bed
ford, in which he announces his determina
tion to support the democratic nominees,
The news of the conversion of John Van
Buren comes from the Cleveland Plain
dealer. The evidence given, that a new
spirit has come over his dream, is, that he
has been speaking under the broad banner
of "Cass, Butler and Weller," "Soldiers in
War, Citizens in Peace." The rumored
defection of Mr. Wilmot has alarmed the
Free Soil men in Philadelphia. Dr. Elder,
the editor of the "Republic," the organ of
the party in that city, has gone on to Tioga
to ascertain whether the rumors are true.
O" Out upon him. - Hon. Truman
Smith, the chairman of the whig executive
committee at Washington, has addressed a
etter to Joshua R. Giddings, of Ohio, the
great abolitionist of that State, upon the
stand he has taken in this campaign. Al
though Mr. Giddings is battling for Van
Buren, Mr. Smith accuses him "of laboring
to ensure the elevation of Lewis Cass to
the Presidency purposely, and with malice
aforethought !" In Gidding's district alone
there will be whigs enough votinp for the
Free Soil ticket to give Gen. Cass the State,
all of whom voted for Ford, the whig gov
ernor elect. This accounts for Mr. Smith's
It matters not how unexceptionable a
candidate for public favor may be, there are
always those to be found who are ready to
heap all manner of epithets upon his char
acter. The candidate of the democratic par
ty for the Presidency, was looked upon, pre
vious to his being honored with the proud
position which he now occupies, with be
coming pride by every American who was
the least acquainted with his history. The
transition, however, of many politicians,
from the highest admiration to the lowest de
traction of the same individual, is so easily
effected that none need be surprised at the
use of the vilest slanders to defame the fai
rest name. To show how unmerited and
unjust is the abuse of Gen. Cass, by a por
tion of the whig press, we give below the
honest sentiments of men whose motives
cannot be questioned ; . -
Opinion of Hon. Abbott Lawrence.
"I know him well. I have broken bread
with him in his own house, and he with me
in mine. He is a gentleman : a man of un
blemished personal character, against which
nothing can justly be said."
Opinion of General Harrison.
"1 have already stated, that General Cass
and Commodore Perry assisted me in forming
the troops for the action, battle of the
Thames. - Tbe former is an orficer of the
highest promise, and the appearance of the
brave Commodore cheered and animated
every breast."
Opinion of General Jackson.
"Having full confidence in your abilities
and republican principle, I invited you to
my cabinet ; and I can never forget with
what discretion and talents ynu met those
great and delicate questions which were
brought before you whilst you presided over
the Department of War, which entitled you
to my thanks, and will be ever recollected
with the most lively feelings of friendship by
Opinion of William C. Rives.
The value of his Gen. Cass's services to
his own country it were difficult to appreci
ate, even by any approximate standard. Had
the quintuple treaty been consummated by
the ratification of France, (and that it teas not
teas owing erpecially to the timely and spirited
interposition of GenH Cass,) we have the au
thority of Lord Palmnrston in the late debate
in the House of Commons, and of Lord
Brougham, for saying, Great Brittain would
have been so flushed with the success of her
projects, and so emboldened in the pursuit of
her long cherished aim of uudisputed supre
macy on the ocean, that America would have
had no alternative but war or submission on the
great question of maritime rights, on which
she had staked her character and fortunes,
Submission is a word not found in the vocab
ulary of American patriotism.
From the N. Y. Courier and Enquirer, (Wg.)
"It is too much the custom of the mere
party press to perceive nothing but what is
evil in an opponent, and only good qualities
(real or imaginary) in a political friend. We
accordingly find General Cass spoken of aa a
man without character, and without political
strength." '
"This is a great error. In all the relations
of private life General Cass has been known
to the writer for nearly thirty years, and a
more estimable father and husband, or a more
honorable and conscientious gentleman, we
are not acquainted with. Of bis talents there
can be no question; and were he a Whig in
principle, the election of no man to the Presi
dency would give us more pleasure."
The very essence of society it subordi
nation. It is the ruling principle of all
creation, from the planets in Heaven to
the lowest of animate beings. The parent
of order, it is the primordial substance and
operative cause of all government, a well
the Democracy as the Monarchy. Its ex
istence is necessarily implied in the forma
tion oi law, and every interruptien of its
courts produces discord and disunion. There
it an opinion abroad that subordination is
inconsistent with Liberty. It it a popular
idea and it too rapidly disseminating ; for
its tendency is to anarchy. The mobs and
disorderly assemblies that to frequently dis
grace every country, and are of far too Ire.
quent occurrence in our own, show plainly
the spirit of insurbordination. The disin
clination ot the people to administer whole
some laws for the punishment of popular
vice ; is a mark of the same spirit. Gam
bling and duelling are almost as frequent as
if no penalty were attached to them. Even
the assassin is rarely convicted, and when
the sentence of the law is pronounced upon
him, a morbid sympathy is excited to shield
him from punishment. And the more hei
nous the crime the greater the sympathy,
A distempered public opinion usurps the
seat of judgement and renders statutes pow
erless by their virtual repeal their refusal
to execute them. The remark of an honest
and true Democrat, in our Legislative Halls,
that a law against public opinion is no law.
is every day exemplified. Men are carried
away by the very true, but too seldom un
derstood maxim, "all are free and equal."
They forget that no man is free from the
fetters of justice and duty. It is not be
neath the dignity of a freeman to obey. It
his duty to submit "while evils are
tolerable." It is his high duty to stand by
the law while it is a law, however unjust,
for there is a proper mode of redress. Where
rulers are not looked up to with respect, no
government is stable. Where insubordina
tion exists, no institutions are safe. That
man who censures the judge for pronoun
cing the law of the land, and would make
the wilful felon a martyr, is himself unfit
for liberty ; for he lacks the all-necessary
quality of subordination. His is the spirit
"Crowded Hell, when Serapha flung awnyaubjection."
It is the spirit that would make our own
government a mobocracy, and people it
with slaves of passion, and prejudice, in
stead of freemen. It is at variance with the
divine precepts of religion, where submis
sion is everywhere inculcated, and had its
origin in the breast of the Arch Bond who
first breathed insubordination in Heaven.
KP"Tire duty: of Voting. President
Wayland, in speaking of the duties of the
freemen of this country, says :
"1 think that every Christian citizen is tin
der obligation to vote in every case where a
public othcer is to be chosen, ine happi
ness and virtue of the community, no less
than the security of property, depends preatly
on the character of the magistracy. If I am
injured in person or property by a wicked
public officer, I have a right to complain of
my fellow citizens who gave him authority
over me, or who, when it was in their power,
did not prevent his election. A Crtnt.ti.-tn m
this country, above all others, has a duty to
perform in this matter, and he disobeys the
commandment in the text if he does not per
ioral it."
We now say to our Democratic friends in
other States, says the last Detroit Free Press
that Michigan will give her vote to Cass and
Butler by at least FIVE THOUSAND over
the whig ticket. Tho county of Wayne, in
which Gen. Cass lives, will increase her usuaj
majority full 200. The city of Detroit, the
residence of Gen. Cass, will give him an in
creased vote, and a majority of 200. Let
what we say be recollected, and placed to
our credit, if we speak truly if not, let it be
chargd that we do not speak correctly.

"The United States are the fuel of political
strife and only wait the spark that is to kin
dle them. What security can there be ia
such a people T How long will it be before
a personal contest of extraordinary vehemence
or a political adventurer, more than t usually
unprincipled and crafty, will plunge the
whole Union into civil wart - In the absence
of sound political views and honest political
differences, there is sure to be an evil ten
dency to personal factions and quarrels. Such
are just the times for a Marius or a Sylla,
Pompey or a Caaar. For our sake, and for
the sake, of the world, we would deprecate
the advent of. such men anywhere, and espe
cially in the great Anglo American Republic!'1
This anxious solicitude for "the great An'
glo-American Republic," at a moment when
the condition of Europe gives warrant for the
worst apprehensions as to the imminent dan
ger of war, confusion and chaos, may call for
surprise or for grateful acknowledgements ac
cording to the disposition of the reader.
In the course of some ten days the Ameri
can people, throughout the length and breadth
of the Union, will choose a President to hold
the chief executive power of the Republic for
the next term of four years. If a similar
event were so near at hand in any European
nation it would be contemplated with fearand
trembling. The fact that the French people
are to choose a President, as soon as the Con
stitution is formed, is regarded as indicative
of a crisis. But with us the election of a
President, although it enlists the most lively
hopes, and wishes, and fears, among the sup
porters of the respective candidates, is so far
removed from any apprehensions of revolu
tionary disturbances that the suggestion of
such, if seriously made, would bo utterly ri
diculous. There is no body in this country
that would wish to see our system of govern
ment overturned.--Baimor American.

The Growth or Ohio. In the October

Ohio, from the pen of the editor : , -
The State of Ohio still grows in all the ele
ments of worldly greatness. Some dozen
years have passed over the towns of Zanes-
ville and Columbus, and the country from the
Ohio river to those flourishing centres of
trade and commerce, since last we travelled
over this section of the State. How great the
change for so short a time ! But, indeed, the
State of Ohio, whose territory was first sett
led by a white family the year of my birth)
is one of the greatest States now in the world,
of that age, and probably that ever was in
the world. Possessed of a rich and greatly d
versified soil and gentle climate, almost ara
ble ; settled by active, enterprising, worldly
population, its wealth and advancement are
passed into a proverb. It will soon have two
millions of as intelligent, enterprising, and
efficient citizens, possessing in the aggregate
some eight hundred or a thousand millions of
taxable property, as can be found in any State
of the same territorial limits in the New
World or in the Old.
