The Milled geville Uecorder
states that Neah-Mathla, (the
great warrior of the Creeks, and
at the head of the hostile party,)
and his son, have been taken pris
oners and brought to Fort Mitch

marched from Tuskegee with sev
en hundred white men, and five
hundred friendly Indians. They
passed near Neah-Mathla's camp,
and sent several of their Jndians
to him. They succeeded in de
coying him a little from the camp,

The current rumor, that a body
of 2000 Creeks had crossed the
Chattahoochee on their way to
Florida, is incorrect. The report
originated, we understand, from
the crossing of the party of Indians
encountered by .Capt. Garmany,
whose trail, we likewise learn, has
been distinctly traced re-crossing
The Mobile ( hreniclc of the
1 1 th, contains a letter from two
men near the bead waters of the
Little Kiver, stating, that Powell
and a young chief I io-p-to-pha,
hail a personal fight in Bear Ham
mock, in which Powell received a
wound in the left side near the
heart, with a hatchet, which in
stantly caused, his death. The
young chief had lied. The In
dian, who was the bearer of this
news to the writer of the letter,
says, "those Indians will ever be
unfriendly to the men who had ta
ken their land." Much sickness
like cholera, or a dysenteric affec
tion prevailed among them.
fXOur attention has been
drawn to the following paragraph
in a letter from the South.
"It was stated that Col. Ilogan
had made a publication in Ala
bama, making some stariliu" dis
closures of base frauds practised
upott the Indians by rami specu
lators, accompanied by letters
from some of the leading specula
tors, which had fallen into his pos
session, and that the excitement
against that class of men and
against the town of Columbus,
Georgia, w here some of them re
side, is very strong. It is appre
hended that these discussions
would have an injurious effect up
on the military.
Of the "excitement" we have
heard nothing but what is staled;
but of base frauds and outrages
practised on the Indians by land
speculators, a recapitulation of
which would disgrace even me
Newgate Calender, we have re
peatedly heard and if but the
half be true, we have, we fear, the
vengeance of a mightier power
than that of a handful of untutored
Indians to deprecate. To this
class of evil doers, rather tban to
the harrassed and plundered
Creeks must we charge the inno
cent blood which has been shed
by the rifle and the tomahawk of
the latter; and if the States of
Georgia and Alabama permit their
atrocities to go unpunished, not
all the power of this nation, migh
ty as it is, will be able to shield
them from the calamitous visita
tions which pursue nations as well
as individuals when they set at
defiance the immutable decrees
of justice and benevolence. Soo
ner or later the day of retribution
will arrive. The first thing to be
done is to protect the innocent
who are suffering for the acts of
the guilty. Let the Indians be
subdued by any and every means,
without delay; burwhen subdued,
let them be treated with hu
manity; and above all. let thot
who have by their wrongs goaded
them to take up arms and give a
muse 10 meir savage nature, be
brought to a severe account, and
measures be adopted to protect the
rignts, and property of the Indians
from the rapacity of such harpies
in future. Norfolk Herald.

Cotton seed oil. Messrs. Clark
and Mead, of this City, have been
for some time engaged in the con
struction of an Oil M ill, on Neuse
uiver, in this vicinity, to be nrn-
pelled by water power. In a few
weeks, the Machinery will be in
operation. The Oil expressed
from Cotton Seed, is said to be
equal to the Sperm for lamps. It
burns with a clear, brilliant light,
without any unpleasant odour.
and is less affected by c old weath
er. As a Paint Oil, it is said to
be a very superior article, and
cold pressed and clarified, it is
pronounced equal to the Olive
Oil for Salads. This manufac
ture is quite a desideratum to our
F armers, also, as from each bale
of Cotton comes about 30 bushels
of Seed, and every 3 bushels of
Seed yield, at least, two gallons of
Oil. Katuig the Seed at 10 cents
a bushel, therefore, each bale will
produce to the grower 3 more
than the selling price of the sta
ple itself. Raleigh Reg.
tt7The New Orleans Bee of
the 10th says, Hubbard, the per
son who set fire to U. S. Treasu
ry Department at Washington,
has been arrested in that city.
He was traced by an officer, who
supposing he would call at the
Post Office for letters to a partic
ular address, gave information to
the Post Master, and in conse
quence he was arrested on making
inquiry for them. He made a
full confession of his connexion
with' the affair, and has promised
to make known his accomplices.
Another Tunnel. It has been
proposed to build a tunnel under!
the river Schuylkill, opposite
Philadelphia. The project is re
presented as very feasible.
The late Mail Robbery. We
learn from the Richmond Whig
of Saturday that "Burdick and
Huffman apprehended for robbing
the mail between Richmond and!
Petersburg, have been sentenced
to the Penitentiary by the Federal
District Court Burdick, as the
actual robber, for three years
Hoffman, as the receiver of the
plunder, knowing it to be stolen,
for one Burdick was found guil
ty by a jury Hoffman confessed
and threw himself on the mercy of
the Court. Neither of them is a
Virginian. Both are Northern
men. We think that the mail will
in future, be left undisturbed.

escape from detection and punish

Tailors in New York. Twen
tv Journeymen Tailors have been
recently tried before the Court of
Oyer & Terminer, in city of New
York, and convicted of a conspir
acy in forming themselves with
others into an unlawful club or
combination to injure trade, by
making arbitrary by-laws, and to
prevent journeymen tailors from
working for any tailor who would
not assent to said by-laws; in other
words for a "strike" or "turn out
for wages." Henry Faulkner,
who was President of the Society,
was fined one hundred and fifty
dollars; another, who made hirn
self particularly conspicuous, one
hundred dollars; and all others
fifty dollars each,, and stand com
mitted till the fine's-are paid.
High Prices. Complaints are
rife around us of the immense pri
ces which are demanded for everv

are very much in favor of their
continuance. Everybody is ris-

fXA peck of green peas was
sold in Boston on Monday, June
13, for ten dollars. The Editor
of the Petersburg Constellation
remarks, that it would be hard to
say whether the peas or the pur
chaser were the greenest.
Hard Times. An old lady was
complaining a few days ago in the
market of the excessive high price
of provisions. "It is not meat
only that is so enormously dear,"
said she, "but I cannot obtain
flour for a pudding for less than
double the usual price, and they
do not make the eggs half so large
as they used to be!"
Gold Coinage. Last week, bv
the Treasury returns, it appears;
that $28G,G25 in gold was coined j

equal to the whole average annual

Ohio. The legislature of Ohio
has rejected 43 applications for
new Banks; prohibited the issuing
and circulating within the State,
small bank notes, and also the
establishment of any agency wiih-j

Methodical Duelling. The
Fiedricksburg Herald gives an
account of a duel recently fought
near Tallahassee by George
Ward, Esq. brother of (he Lieu
tenant Ward who was shot some
time ago by Colonel Parish, and
Colonel Allston, brother-in-law of
Colonel Parish. They met with
four pistols each, and being sta
tioned at fifty paces distance, had
the privilege of advancing as they
fired. Each fired four times, the
last at twenty-five paces: Ward
was wounded in the right shoul
der, and Allston severely in some
portion of his body not mentioned.
Introduction of Liquor into the
Sandwich Islands. i is humilia
ting to watch the gradual progress
of events as they have successively
developed themselves in the pre
tended humane attempt to civilize
and christianize the "poor delud
ed heathen" of the Sandwich Is
lands, as they have been very
charitably denominated by our
overweaning and exclusive phil
anthropists. It now appears what
was long ago predicted as an inev
itable result, has actually come to
pass. The same steps in times
past in New England, led to the
same fatal goal. After having at
great labor and much indiscreet
expenditure of the funds of chari
table associations to transplant
missionaries and school masters
yea, and school mistresses into
Owyhee and others of the groupe
atier naymg induced the chiefs
to assume in part our costume and
customs, like monkeys in soldiers
clothes after in short perverting
them from the innocent purity of
savage life, and infecting the is
land with the sordid love of traffic,
maugre the prayer . meetings and
bible societies, the cluster has
become a place of great resort for
whale ships and consequently of
sailors, who carouse as much in
the grog-shops of Honolulu and
other towns of Oahu, as they do at
the present moment at the Five
Points of this city. The truth is

process was repeated as ofei as
