The following narrative i from the Natchri
Courier of the Oth instant.
" It is a painful duty, in the line of our protec
tion, in notice thii morning, one of the tnoit mi)
end distressing event on record. The public rr
aware, that near a year ago, our fellow citizen Jo
ia A. Lyre, had a quarrel with Mr. It igan, ofNew
Orleans, in which the latter wae hot through the
head. Mr. Lyle was tried in thia city f r the f
fence ami fully arqiiittad. Would tbat we could
with the trial, date a caseation of ho-tility and the
compromise of a di put about property, atilt exist,
big lietween Mr. Lyla end the Ilagan; but alas
we are forced to witnee a denoueiaent truly afS cl

Same wocka since the Hagan, who were part,
nera of Lyle in the cultivation of a large plantation
on the Mississippi river, repaired to the farm and
tuok forcible possession by driving off Ly tie's over
seer. Last Tuesday Mr. Lyle and four friend went
to tho firm for the purpose we have been told, of
compromising the difficulty. Immediately on land
ing from the Baton Rouge, Lyle and one of his
friends rushed to the house, when the Hag in whom
he bad previously shot, met him at the door and
demanded the purpose of his visit. Lyle aud his
friend were both armed with gun?. The response
made to the demand of Hagan was " peace of
curse, peace." Ilagan commanded him to advance
no further until he explained what he wanted.
Lyle said a man could not be stopped from walk
ing in his own yard, and continued to move to
wards the house. Ilagan immediately 1 veiled a
double barrelled gun and ahot Lyle through the
head and heart, and he fell instantly dead. The
friend of Lyle, a Mr. Handy, then raised his piece
to shoot Hagan, but it snapped. Ilagan aimed the
second load of his gun at Handy, but it missed fire.
Handy went to the gate anJ discharged his piece
at Hagtin without effect.
Another of Mr. Lyle' friends, a Mr. Lumsdon,
formerly of the Natchez city gu.nd, then adv. .no d.

which Hagin reached from inside the door. Thus

Dr. Hall of East Harford, a surgeon in the
army of the revolution, was an eja witness to the
execution of Major Andre, atanding wiihin four or
five rols of the scene. Noticing mnu inaccuracies
in the article of the Knickerlocker a few dsya ago,
he has called and related to ua the following partic
ular. He atat. a that Andro walked to the place
of execution behind th cart, accompanied by two
officer, one on each side, and alopped under the
gsltowa. Arrived there, he immediately stepped
up into the cart, when the officer of the day, Col
fcammell, aid to him, if you have any thing to

have nothing to say, but to have yeu to bear wi'
neaa that I die like a brave man. Col. 8. then

work so awkwardly in at'enipling to put the noose

much that the h uigtn.in was ordered to take hold
of them and kri them strait. The body wa cut
down after harging fifieen or twenty minuets, and
buried near the tallows. From the location of the
grave, Andre must have passed it iu going to the
place of oxecudon.
Tho Doctor thinks the accounts relative to the
ellempte made by Washington, to aecure Arnold
ai.d liberate Andre, mu-t be Inoorrect. The Court
which sentanccd Andre to deith having leen held
on the BOth September, only three daya before his
execution, the time allowed was not by any meana
sufficient to permit such plans to be uccesafully
carried out, especially the one in which Champa
ws said to have been concerned Hartford Cuu-rani.

The laat Milton Ledger contains a communica
tion, occupying more than two columna of that pa
per, reiterating the batch of falsehood which were
publish' d unci republished in the Ledr previous to
the late ehciion. We have no inleution of enter
ing into a controversy with any skulking acrihbl.r.
We always like to know tho character and respon
sibility ol an indivMi al. before we take the trouble
to convict him of falsehood, fir if he is possessed of
neither, it would be unnecessary lo disprove bia as
sertions, nor u ould the clearest conviction of false
hood fleet him, either with shsme or disgrace. A
liar is not expi-eled to tell the truth, and his word
is a haiml. - hi character ia infitmoua. Accord
ing to the political cexlc of morals adopted by some
men, a' bcrraiii ns from ihe stiaight-forward path of
truth dur ng ihe pendency of a Mlilical contest, is
not only tolerable, hut not in the least degiee crimi
nal, but the man who can, after the fever and ex
citement of the contest have cooled, and the motive
ceisid and worn olT, deliberately re-aaseit parcel
of electioneering fabrications, exhibits u h a total
disregard of tiuth, such a corruption of heart, thit
we may safely conclude thai be haa been given up
"to believe a lie." Such must wa pronounce our
judgment of the author of the communication in the
Ledger. But perhaps it ia too harsh. 8ome men
falsify from mere wickedness of heart, other through
ignorance. Charily would induce us to place the
author in the latter cla-s, and nserve our estima
tion of his ciiminaliiy, untd we know the man. Ig

'he imperative duty of every frimd of morality, so

II. B. Massxb, Eaa.,
Dkab 8ib:- Sine such a commotion haa been
raised by ihe frienJ of J. C. Horton, Esq , on e
count of the eu'libility of iheir party, al the rsisini
of the hickory flag ataff in thi borough on the 3d I
nst, and the many nvsslatcmcnts and exaggerations
used by the opponents of Mr. Hegins, telativo to
the affair of painting the flag, Ac, it may be deerc
d proper in me to give a statement of the whole
transaction, which I shali endeavor to do in a plain
and dipaesionate manner. ;
On Tuesday or Wednesday previous to the rais
ing, I was told by II. 8. Thomas, Esq., that the
young men had held a meeting, and Were about e-
reeling a pole, and that aa my ahare they had allot
ted the painting of a fl g and transpaioncy, I replied
lhat I would lie very happy to do them any aervice
iu my power. He aaid no more at that lime, but
sent ihe musbn, ai d I went to work mid finished
Van Buren" in large block letters the same even
ing, wtien I called Me-sr Youtigm m and Thomas
to see it, they expresMd their satisfaction, and after
ome abort conversation, retired.
The motto on the transparency were fixed by
Messrs. Voungmsn, Thomas and myself, after a
good deal of debate, and were painted on four yard
When the transparency waa finished, I cnt for
ome more mualin to paint in atrip for sowing on
the oppo-ite aide of the flag, over the place where
the letters shewed through, and I painted the names
"Van Buren," Johnson," and "Porter aud Demo
cracy," on separate strips.
Here it may be proper to state, th'. while I was
pouting the transparency, the flag waa hanging
lose at hand to dry, and visits of cuiiosity were not
unfrequent. Nearly alt inquired what would lie
on the other side, and to (hi- question my universal
reply was "Vsn Binen and Johnson, Porter and
Di mocracy, and Charle W. Jleghn,"
They all aay I laughed when I told them. Well,
hat may be, for I cannot say that I whs in an ill
humor at the time, and I 'hii.k any young man in
my situation would have found it rather difficult t i
maintain a serious air ; for I had then in prospect
the rediCuloua scene of Jease C. Horton lending a
hand to raise a flag with his opponent's name on i.
They say I laughid, and tiny may hate ajoken
On Friday evening I had some company, (three
young men. all particular friends of mine,) and af
ter amusing ours. Ives fr an hour or so, I began to
inquire into the politic of one, (a democr.i,) and
found lhat he was rather for Horton. I was ex
tremely sorry for this, for I wished to enlist him in
the trick, but did not tell him. The others I knew
to be for Hegins, and after our Horton friend bad
gone, I opened my plan to them, and we went to
work, and in about fifieen minuU produced a pret
ty fair piece of workmanship, in the shape of the
name of "C. W. Hi gins." The leitera were ten
inchea tall, and look d quite well. This done, we
piocevded to dry the piece, and succeeded Very well ;
for in three-fourths of an hour it wa perf.c ly dry
and ready for aewmg, and in a short time we had
it firmly .attached to the main flag, opposite the
name of Por'er and Democracy ; slier ihis, a str.p
prepared with Porter nd Democracy on it, wa
sewed on Ihe lop, o aa to cover C. W. Hegins
nam-, and the other part of the banner were ar
ranged in the usual atyle, and well sewed.
In the morning I procured a phial of Sulphuric
Acid, and tried experiments on several threads, o
a to ascertain the r ght quantity ol water lo I e used
in allowing the thread to lust three hours. Thi
wa found to be about one-third.
A few minutes before the pole was raised, I put
drop of the diluted acid on each stiih of the piece
which covered the name of "C. W. Hegins," and
soon after folded the flag up, and carried it to the
pole, and after a great deal of delay tied it to its
I lace by the corda. Another hour being spent iu
fruitless attempts at Ritting the eople to work by
aome system, and the noble pole began to raise it
gianl head towards the heavens, with a beaulifnl
American flag, made by ihe ladiea, and Ihe banner
mado by me, flo iting goyly in. the evening breeze-
Youngman, Esq. very kindly volunteered his rer-
vices to keep the A ig folded, and watch the boy a
In the evening the company partook of a splendid
supper prepared by Mr. Hillhourn, and Messrs
Cake and Youngman very politely invited me to
attend, but being engaged particularly lhal evening,
I excused myself and thanked them. After supper
the company formed procession, and accompanied
by music, passed through the principal streets, and
when ihey came lo our house gave three cheer for
me. For thi- bonor I thank them in all aincemy,
and hope to be able some night lo repay them for
On 8unday morning early, the nick waa disco
vered, snd all day oaths and damnations were thun
dered out against me thick and heavy, and the Hor-
toniana determined to have it down. They tried to
climb the pole on Monday morning, but failed, and
in the afternoon shot it off. The same evening Ihey
held a meeting at Mr. Hillhourii', at which I at
tended and heard a great deal of abusive language
used, not necessary In rcpe'il al present, and of too
low emanation to name'on a decent aheet of paper.
At thia meeting waa passed aundry resolutions,
which have been published in Mr. Youngman' print
for electioneering purpose. If there can be any
blame attached to ny one, I claim aa my exclusive
right, that it ahall be to me, as. I designed the whole
and by my own mean put it in execution, merely
for a piece of fun. Being a miuor, I have no interest
whatever in the i lection.
