The Indian Bureau has received informed that

council at Leavenworth with influential repre
sentatives of the Southern Indian tribes, in
cluding those from the Creeks, Cherokees and

sioned by the present rebellion. The instruc
tions sent thither by the Commissioner of In
dian Affairs contemplate their return to their
own people with strong assurance of the friend

omitted in the transmission of the recent speech
of Senator Trumbull's : "Without any special

W eight, she replied i that last 'winter, and

dreadful sufferings and cruelties the free blacks
of the south were subjected to before they were
forced to leave their homes, and that the stories
of many of them who were nearly white used
W make her blood boil. She said she used to
pray then that some punishment would be meted
out to the brutal slave lords who were guilty of
such deeds, and that as soon as she heard of the
expedition against South Carolina, she asked
permission of the captain of the steamer to ac
company him in her old capacity as stewardess.
As such she rendered efficient service after the
engagement to the very few of the men who
required assistance. We believe she was the
only woman who saw the 'grand affair,' as she
mils it, and her description of the 'thrashing
the vile rebels got," was graphic in the ex
TVs Taarros. PRISONERS SLIDELL AND Mesas.
John M. Mason, we need not remind our rea
ders, is - the infamous framer of the Fugitive
Slave law. He is one of the most insolent and
overbearing of the whole plantation breed of
politicians. A. few years ago,
under the provisions of the diabolical statute
framed by Mason, was taken down Boston har
bor, a prisoner of the United States, to be thrust
into slavery ; now the author of that law is
brought into the same harbor, a prisoner of the
same government, upon a charge of treason I
The contrast between these two events is most
striking and suggestive.
John Slidell was born in New York in 1793.
Early in life, says The Tribune, he went to the
south, having been detected in an infamous
crime from the immediate consequences of
which he escaped by sliding down a water-pipe
from a chamber window. A duel afterward fol
lowed, and having nearly added murder to ad
ultry he fled. He was the son of a tallow
chandler, a parentage of which he had the
weakness to be ashamed, and which was a
source then, and probably is now, of continual
mortification. It is related of him that on one
occasion in conversation with a lady, noted and
dreaded for her wit he expressed a desire for
foreign travel. "Ah. !" said the lady, "I have
no doubt you would find yourself very much at
home in Greece !" Slidell withdrew precipita
tely from the encounter. "That young man,"
said his persecutor, as he retreated, "needs to
be dipped over again, for he has not been well
d." He will now be put where he can re
flect at hisleisure upon the peaceful and respect
able qualities of the father and grandfather—
who was also a tallow-candler—of whom he has
always been ashamed.
PREDICTION OF GEN. ZACHARY TAYLOR THAT
KENrucnv WOULD ADHERE TO TES UNION.—An
officer of the army vouched for the authenticity
of the following statement concerning General
Zachary Taylor. It was communicated to him
by an officer in the staff of General Taylor. He
was at Fort Jessup, Louisiana, near the Texas
line, in 1844, commanding the "Army of Ob
servation," assembled there prior to the annex
ation of Texas. Gen. Taylor sympathized
strongly with that portion of the Whig party
that opposed the annexation of Texas, though
ready, like a good soldier, to fight for it after
it was annexed. He said that "if the annexa
tion should lead to an attempt to dissolve the
