of course, not in methodical ma chin:: and

equal to the Regulars, and that is saying a
great deal, for we venture the boast that
there is not a finer army in the world than
the Regulars now in Monterey. But particu
lady in the scrambling fi ,, ht in the streets,
and on the tops of the houses, the Volunteers
of „Mississippi': of TenneSscie, and of Texas,
were very eflective. rndeed the chief loss
to the enemy was occasioned by the sharp
shooting and sharp cutting of Tennessee
rifles and Mississippi bowie knives."
A scene - of horrible butchery occurred
at Lancaster, Pd. on Satunlay. A man named
John Haggerty, after shooting a Horse-in the
street, near his own 'tense, went to the resi
dence of Mr Melehoir Fordney, an aged
and hig‘tly esteemed citron, who, with- Iris
wife and-child, ho deliberately inurdered.
The editor of the Union and _ Tribune gives
the particulars as folloWs: A boy,- a son of
Mr. Fordney, gave the alarm that his father,
mother and sister had been mindere() 'by
Haggerty! On going into the room, we
witnessed one of the most horrid spectacles
imaginable. • Just inside the front door of the
shop lay the - old man, with his brains batter
ed outs At his side, but with her head to
wards the back door, lay the body of his
wife, her brainc also battered - out; and near
her lay her child, four or five yearrt old, with
its scull broken and tl rius oozing therel.
from ! .
Fordney and his NMI, it scorns, had been
killed instantly. The little boy staled, in
substance, that Haggerty got at his brother
_ .with_an axe,_ and-while he was killing him
his mother ran in to interfere, when_ite turn
ed upon hersand killed her; and then struck'
. `the child on the head with the axe. Tl.tgf
child only lived a lew hours. The foul deed
ifeatird - ftiten,se excitement in the city: -
Some feeling existed against the High

signal rebuke of the inquitous fraud perpe

by Polk, Dallas,. Buchanan, Shut dc, and
their .allies in the Maroons woik of deeep

State—tho. friend' of Protection to borne la
hor—have . condemned the - British' Free
Trade Turill of 1846, and have spoken- td
their betrayeis in tones of th,ander! Per n•
Sylvania has said, in a "voice that cannot be
misunderstood or misconstrued, that she
may riot be.eheated and deceived 'with im
.punity ;—that though betrayed, she is still
true-to-her-interests—and, with a spirit be
coming the honest freemen of the land
of Pennsylvania, resents the villainy of the
political demagogues who have dared M de
ceiVe arid betray her.
Old Wilier Cumberland is not alone in
her indignant-rebel of the iMPThaiipled - he:

ooniciies, more i.lireinly interesred in the

in tones of Thunder! Many 2t. the old
