from the office of the Springfield
Journal, dated June 23d, ten
o'clock at night, says A gentle
man who has just reached 'here
from Canton iu Fulton County,
brings us information of a most
disastrous hurricane having pass
ed over that village on the ISth
inst. at G o'clock, P. M. That
place contains about 35 bouses,
and iu a few minutes two-thirds
of them were levelled with the
ground; only three escaped unin
jured. Five persons were killed,
'one, a Mr. Swan, and three
children. One child was killed
in its mother's lap; one was blown
a quarter of a mile, and found dead
next day shockingly mangled.
One store (Mr. Foster's) was
blown down, and the goods scat
tered over the prairies. A great
number of persons were severely
injured Mr. Foster, Uis suppos
ed, fatally. The Presbyterian
hureh was occupied by the
lioufeless inhabitants. IMr. Se

account which our inform ant gives

couple were married, the company
was seated, and the most profound
silence ensued (the man of the
house being religious.) A young
lawyer then rose and addressed
the company very handsomely,
and finishing his discourse, beg
ged leave to offer a new scheme
of matrimony, w hich he believed
and hoped would be beneficial.
On obtaining leave, he proposed:
That one man in the company
should be selected as president;
that this president should be duly
sworn to keep entirely secret all
communications that should be
forwarded to his official depart
ment that night; and that each un
married gentleman and ladv
should write his or her name

place the person's name with

inspection; and if any gentleman

each other, the president was to
inform each of the result; and
those who had not been recipro

Alter the appointment of the

were accordingly handed up to

CTThe Apalachicola (Flor
ida) paper of the 15th June in
forms us that the citizens of that
place have all, without a single
exception, resolved to abandon it
en masse, and remove to St. Jo
seph's which, as respects its har
bor, local situation and salubrity,
is regarded as a much more eligi
ble site. They have been induc
ed to take this decisive step by
what the editor calls the child's
play and quibbling course of the
proprietors; who appeartobe non
residents. The harbor of St. Jo-
pb's is described as being excel-
and it is announced that

Mob Justice. Information was
received from Vicksburg yester
day, by the arrival of the steam
boat Scotland, that a serious act
ofmobocracy look place on the
0th inst. in the town mentioned.
It appears that a den of gamblers
existed in that place which had
become obnoxious to the citizens.
On the Fourth of July the gam
blers were refused permission lo
participate in the celebration,
whereupon they became insolent,
and notice vvas given to them by
the citizens to leave the place.
This they disregarded, and re-
nmned. I w o of them, in con-j
sequence were taken and made to
go through the ceremony of tar
ring nnd feathering, so well
known and so often practised in
the West. These two left the
place, but the others, five in num
ber, armed themselves, and made
a fortress of their establishment, to
which the citizens repaired, and
after having forced the doors,
rushed in. Dr. Bodley, the first
person who entered, received
eleven balls through his body and
fell dead instantly. The death of
the Doctor excited the people to
the highest degree of wrath; and,
having seized the gamblers they
lost no time in hanging the whole
five, who remained suspended
twenty-lour hours. Perhaps jus
tice was done to them. It is re
ported that they had several time
before escaped legal justice.

A number of Southern gentle
men now in New York, have giv
en notice of a public meeting to
be held there on the 20th inst, 'to
take into consideration the alarm
ing subject now being agitated

the measures adopted by some of
their fellow citizens of the non
slave holding States avowing a
solemn determination to effect an
immediate aid unconditional,

South.' "We invoke this meet

to exasperate not to increase the

selves of gross misrepresentations
to heal up distentions to allay
sectional prejudices to reiuvigo

avert the alarming consequences
which must inevitably follow any
attempt, by the peopfe of the non

Riots in Philadelphia. By the
Inquirer of yesterday we regret
to learn that the riots there were
renewed on Tuesday night. A
mob continued to collect in the
neighborhood of South and Sixth
streets, when a rumor spread that
a 3 story brick house in St. Mary
street was garrisoned by armed
blacks, resolved to sell their lives.
The mob, over 1000 persons,
proceeded thither, but .the mayor
,;, police had pm etded them.
j 11 was Juiimi Mere that 50 or 60
blacks, armed with knives, blud
geons, and pistols, were in the
house. They had taken the
sashes out, and a la mode destrois
jours de Paris, had provided
themselves with a pile of stones.
These blacks were, it is said,
chiefly composed of those tvho
had been driven the night before
out of their homes. Tiie Recor
der succeeded in persuading them
to retire out the back way pri
vately, otherwise they would have
been murdered by the mob, who
were kept bat k by the police at a
short distance. One ofthe mob
also had a pistol. Large num
bers of persons have left the city
from fear. The brutal attack on
Mr. Stewart, the other day, by
a negro, is the immediate cause of
these deplorable proceedings.
Several ofthe ringleaders of the
mob have been arrested. -ib.
