Many of the ringleaders had been arrested,
and seven hung. One white man, found die
guised as a negro, had been sentenced to re
the 900 lashes, and died before the penalty
was fully inflicted.
The whites were arming and organizing for
defence. The opinion prevailed that a gen

gued before tho Supreme Court at Washington,
and referred to in our telegraphic dispatches
this morning, involves the constitutionality of
the Missouri Compromise, and the power of
Congress to prohibit slavery in a Territory, in
the following manner. Scott is the son of a
slave woman belonging to an army etlieer, who
moved with his family and his slave into the
Territory where, by the Missouri Compromise,
slavery was prohibited. There Scott was born,
but was afterward carried back to Missouri,
and is now held therein as a slave. He sues
for his freedom, on the ground that ho was born

possible to describe the horror which depicted
the visages of that throng of spectators called

The circumstances are as fellows :—Mr
Fleming, an elderly gentleman, and two suns
about 25 to 28 years of age, had called upon
a Mr. Cronies at his room at the B. House,
armed with loaded pistols, to coerce the latter
gentleman into a concession and retraction of
a mummy about their daughter and sister, with
which they charged Mr. C. Mr. C. alter some
pretty warm language had passed between the
parties, agreed to and did sign a retraction in
the presence of a friend whom the Messrs.
Fleming had brought with them.
Immediately after delivering the pnper into
the possession of their friend, the Messrs. F.,

the knife and struck the one who held the pis.

did the first, the heart of his victim.

in less than two seconds, and were both bloody
