Speight in the next eleetion for represen

less an uncompromising support of the
Administration and the democracy of the
Union, he hits been marked by the bank
iies and ari-toeraey as a victim. lUit we
mistake tin; spirit and patriotism of the
people of his district, if they dismiss b om

GyThc Hon. Thomas II. Hall, rep
resentative from the Tnrboro' district,
has also been singled out by the leaders
of the sect of Wigs, as an object at which
to fling their darts, with the hope of pierc
ing his reputation, destroying his popu
larity, and thus rendering him an easy
prey to their arts of deception and hypocrisy-
Meetings are getting up, and a
Convention is to be held of bank-whigs
at Vyashington, to bring forward a bank
candidate, oftho Mick Biddle faith, to
oprlSse, and, if the influence of the great
mother of evils and its money can effect
it, to defeat Dr. Hall at the next elec
tion: The Doctor's democratic course
in Congress, is an eye-sore to them; hence
their haired towards him. But the peo
ple must keep a look-out for these aris
tocrats. They are the same enemies of
popular rights with which the people
have had to contend time out of mind,
under new disguises, it is true, and very
honest ntmes, too; but strip them of their
aliases, and there's the old rogue still!. .ib.

GTThe schooner Philadelphia, which
sailed from Aransas, Texas, on the Cth
inst., arrived this norning. She has on
board about 40 emigrant passengers from
Power's colony, oi the Mission river,
Texas. We learn from a passenger on
board that they are completely disgusted
with the country that near all the colo
ny, principally composed of Irish, had
been sick with the fyer, and that a num
ber of deaths had taken place among
them it is further stated, that it is the
intention of all the colonists to leave the
country as soon as possible. Those who
came passengers in the Philadelphia,
were more or less afllbted with fever and
ague when they left, bit were rapidly re

by our liberal minded litizensto mitigate
the distresses of these unfortunate emi

Shocking Outrage.Tha Baltimore
papers furnish accounts of the most hor
rid outrages and murders, committed on
the 8th section of Washington Rail Road,
about 13 miles from Baltimore, on the
19ih and 20ih ultimo. A dispute be
tween some of the workmen and one of
ihe superintendents, relative to their wa
ges, was made the pretext for the com
mencement of the dreadful tragedy.
Two of the superintendents, Messrs.
Watson, and Gorman, ftere, on the first
evening, dragged out of their shanty, beat
en severely, and left in a state of insensi
bility. They, however, revived, and
hopes-were entertained of their recovery
until the next night, when the murderers
broke in and deliberately slaughtered
i hem in the most barbarous manner, cut
ting open the head of one of them, and
scattering his brains about. They then
dragged out Mr. Messer, an assistant,
told him to get "on his knees and say his
prayers, for he had but a minute to five,"
and while in that attitude, fired four bul
lets into his body! They also treated
Mrs. Gorman in the most brutal manner.
Several other persons were injured.
Mr. Callon, one ol the superintendents,
made his escape; but, as he ran olf, his
dog was shot down at his side. The
miscreants next proceeded to rob, tho
premises, and extended their depredo
lions to the neighboring citizens. They
took possession of a tavern and store,
which they robbed, &c. &o. As soon
as information was given to the proper au
thorities, the military were promptly call
ed out, and put an end to their desperate
proceedings. Seven volunteer compa
nies from Baltimore, including one irooo
of light horse, marched to the field of ac
tion, and returned to the city on the 26th,
wiih about 300 of the laborers in their
custody, whom they escorted to prison,
where they will remain until the law takes
its regular course.
CTSome gamblers from Boston took
post a few days since, on the musterfield
at Lexington, Mass. where there was a
brigade review. The soldiery, disliking
the manoeuvres of the blacklegs, charged
the whole body, foot and horse but we
find it recorded as one of the uncertainties
of war, that the "regulars" were most
ignobly defeated. The gamblers made
fight, and actually drove the assailants
from the field, infantry and cavalry
three of the soldiers being wounded by a
dirk wielded by one of the enemy. We
marvel that reinforcements had not been
called in. This valiant brigade ought
certainly to have been better supporter!.

Good tidings for the Farmers. Great
Fire in London &c. The Ship Caledo
nia, just arrived at New York from Liv
erpool, brings London dates to the 20lh
and Liverpool to the 21st of October, ten
days latter than previous advices. The
item of most interest to us on this side of
the Atlantic, is the cheering intelligence
brought to the American Agriculturists.
It will be perceived by our quotations un
der the Commercial head, that Cotton,
one of the great staples of the Southern
States is in demand at advanced prices.
The sales in Liverpool on the 18th and
19th of October amounted to Fourteen
thousand Bales. On the 20th, an ad
vance of 5 per Ib. had taken place on the
sales of the preceding day. The next
item of prominent intelligence, more im
portant and interesting to the citizens of
Great Britain than those of the United
States, is the total destruction by fire on
the evening of the 16th of October, of
the Houses in which were held the meet
ings of the British Parliament, and other
edifices connected with, and in their
neighborhood. The principal building
destroyed, was the venerable Chapel of
St. Stephen, founded by the English
King of that name, in honor of the first
Christian Martyr, who for propagating
the doctrines of "peace and good will to
all mankind," was stoned to death. Tho
total value of property destroyed, esti
mated intrinsically, amounts to about
twenty-five millions of dollars. The po
litical news is rather unimportant.
