Another abusive Oppression
Heartless Cruelty to the Emigra
ting Creeks. There are now no
less than 14,000 ( reek Indians on
their way or already arrived at
F ort Gibson. They are removed
by a company of contractors, who
receive so much a head on deliv
ering them to the government of
firers at the posts. The Arkansas
Gazelle, ediled by T. J. Pew, has
the candor to acknowledge thai
the contractors turn this business
into a source of speculation, and
hurry on ihe Indians in masses
without extending to them, louse
lite editor's language, "ihe indul
gence of lime that common hu
manity tequires." The corres

Thousands of them are entirely
destitute of shoes or covering of
any kind for the ieet; many of
them are almost naked; and but
few of them have any thing more
on their persons than light dresses,
calculated only for the summer, or
for a very warm climate; and the
weather being warm when they
left Alabama, many of them left
their heavier articles of clothing,
expecting them to be brought on
in steam boats; which has as yet
been ottly partially done. In this

From Texas. By a slip of the
Courier de la Louisiana, (New
Orleans,) to Jan.22d, the Courier
of this morning has.accounts from
Texas stating that several murders
had been committed by the Indi
ans in the vicinity of the Cross
Timbers, which had occasioned
so much alarrii at Nacogdoches,
(on the disputed Territory.) thai
the inhabitants there had solicited
General Arbuckle,w ho had retired
with the U.S. troops to Fort Je
sup to return.
The country between the Neu
ces, Angeliue and Sabine rivers,
had by this movement been left
defenceless. The population ol
this tract on the disputed Territo
ry consists of about 30,000, who
are in some measure inoffensive
. Gen. Felix Houston writes that
his army are in fine condition and
spirits, and that he had made a
reeonnoisance as far as San Pat
ricio, and carried off a great quan
tity of wild cattle, as well as de
stroyed all the habimtions, Mexi
can Texian, on the Neuces. The
advanced guard of the Mexican
forces, (a detachment of cavalry,)
was at Camargo. Gen. F. Hous
ton is confident of success should
the Mexicans invade, but urges
the friends of Texas at New Or
leans to send on volunteers, sta
ting among other inducements
that the Texian Government will
now have at their disposal no less
than the additional quantity of
sixty millions of acre of land.
The T exian force is 1500 regu
lars, and 4000 militia riflemen.
The struggle will be at the Colo

Extraordinary Ruins of an an
cient American 4 ity. The wes
tern papers have for some time
past spoken of the ruins of a buried
city, recently discovered in Ouis
consiu Territory on the west branch
of Rock or Craw fish river. We
have not yet seen any positive or
authentic statement of this Anti
quarian curiosity, but give the de
tails as published. 'l itis ancient
metropolis of a by-gone woVld is
said to consist of brick w alls, from
4 to 5 feet high, and nearly 12
feet thickness at their base. At
regular intervals of five rods, mas
sive buttresses support those ram
parts, which circummured a city
of nearly three miles, in an irregu
larly oblong spuare. The re
mains of five large buildings are
enclosed within this space, and
nearly fifty others of smaller si2e,
may there be found. The walls,
as defined in the unpretending
ketch to which we allude, are in
'-Miglh on the north, one hundred
rods: on the east, fifty five; on the
'St forty five. The remaining
nmindary has not been accurately
traced. From an inscription oh a
rude portal of the ciiy, it was
found that its name was Aztaldn.
A frightful invention. A Mr.
Iiobert McCarty, or Buffalo, fabri
cian in the gun line, believes he
has driven the Green Mountain
Boy, Cochran's famous invention,
hors du Combat. He throws
from 3 lo 500 one pound ball
from his rifle per minute, without
powder or steam! He can do the
same with a 30 pound ball a
complete portable battery! We
guess Mr. McCarthy would flinch
a little before Cochran's many
Chambered contrivance, supplied
a it now is with cartouch boxes
of loaded cylinders. What can

Arson and Murder. The Mon
mouth Inquirer of yesterday say$:
An individual named John G. Tay

Sunday last, charged with having
murdered an individual named
William James a foreigner and
boarder in the house at the time,
by culling his throat and then set
ting tire to the house and burning
up his mother, Mrs. Taylor.
No other reason is assigned for
the committal of this diabolical
act, than dissatisfaction in the di
vision of the property on which
the outrage was committed.

A Valuable Wife. Before the
Circuit Court, sitting at Wash
ington, D. C. William Henry
Weston for shooting his wife was
brought op to be sentenced, but
was granted a new trial. In clai
ming it, he stated that his wife had
several times threatened to take
away his life and had carried a
loaded pistol about her for that
purpose. He said that on the dav
the assault was committed by him,
he had been compelled to take
out a peace warrant against her,
which was issued by n magistral
then predentin Court (Mr. Thomp
son.) The prisoner said his wife
had indeed been well described by
a respectable witness as "a devil
incarnate," which ahe certainly
was, as she had said she would
plunge herself into hell torments
lor the purpose of revenge.
Mere judge Morstll told the
prisoner that although the witness
had given ihe prisoner's wife a had
character, ihe witness had not
given him, the prisoner a much
better one. r
The brisoner said that tvas all
calumny. If permitted lo have a
new trialj he would prove that hi
wife had robbed him, and that she
had threatened his life. He had
not intended to shoot his wife, but1
finding, when he saw her at Mr.
Urummond's, that she had a pistol
in her handj and was going to fire
at him, he took out his pistol for
self-defence, and it w ent' off acci
dentally Ludicrous scene.r The Boston
Traveller relates the following:
A singular scene occurred yester
day in the Artists' Gallery, during
an anti-slavery meeting. Mr
Staunton, who was addressing the
numerous assemblage, felt a sud
den affection of the lungs, ai d was
obliged to suspend his remarks
by reason of coughing. The pro
pensity seemed contagious; imme
diately great numbers of ihe au
dience set a sneezing and cough
ing; a rush was made for ihe door,
and ihe meeting was completely
broken . up. On examination, it
appeared that some mischievous
person had sprinkled cayeuue
pepper on the heated stove in the
room, which soon infused its ster
nutatory powers among those pre
itaincr aevere. Mr. josepn
Vose, of Boston, second officer of
engine 2, and a married man oC
good character, (so proven.) was
fined $10 and costs by the Police
t otirt of that city, last week, on
suspicion that he had attempted to
steal a ham from Faneuil Halk
market. Vose said he picked up
the, ham from the walk in ihe cen
tre of the market, and was in thet
act of laying it on one of the. stalls,,
when one Watkins, w ho kept near
halloed at him, and accused hi in
of attempting to steal it.. It's but
a short lime since two men came
near being hanged in Boston for
the . charitable act of pulling a
drunken man out of the dock
they being accused of an attempt
upon his life; and this seems to uS
like a similar case.

The American Prisoners at

the Texian war, made their es

were met by 20 Cherokee Indians,
who whipped them and brought
them back. These Indians, of
whom there are about 400 iti

the Mexican Government. These
prisoners have been treated with
great cruelty, and been entirely

flA curious antipathy exist
between the cabbage an! the vine,
so that if the former is planted near

we please without any inconvenience.
