We publish in the Courier y the platfcrm f principles, as adopted by the National Convention of the American party, and officially announced by the authorities of that body. It wi!l be read with interest by every voter, as indicative of the position and line of policy of that new party that has arisen with so much suddeness and so much strength throughout every section of the land. The platform is broad enough for the occupancy of every friend of the country. It is sound in every beam and plank. There is nothing narrow or contracted about it; there is nothing rotten or shaky in it. It is solid and substantial; it has the appearance of having been made merely, but for all time. An emernot for to-dgency gave birth to the party, but it has already become a Herculean giant, with all the muscles and neircs and energy of a veteran. The secrecy that was rendered imperatively necessary at the outset of the party's career, when it needed nursing and preservation from the foul and contaminating air of old organizations, has been abrogated. Hereafter everything is to be open and free as the atxojihere we breathe. of the opposition Thus one of the great bug-beais demolished, end whatever of ad captandumlhe demagogues of the opposition could bring to bear from this secrecy, is forever hereafter forestalled. We are convinced that the people, when they read the platform, will be thoroughly satisfied with its nationality, its manliness, and its liberality. I;s adoption all over the country cannot be doubted. At the North it may meet with some opposition. But we have faith enough in the patriotism and integrity of our friends in that section to believe that eventually they will accede to the platform, the incorporation of which in the workings of our government will secure to us the perpetuity of our free institutions. If now the new party will only exercise a modicum of senss in the selection of candidates, the Presidential race in 1856 may be counted on as a certainty. But before we can well predicate anything concerning that result, the rule of old political cliques must be broken, demagoguery must be banished from the primary organization of the party, and new and reliable men placed at the head of aiTairs. Small Potato PaoscBirrioir i Kentucky. John M. Ciicvis, Esq., late Postmaster at Carlisle, Nicholas county, was recently removed from office and Joel Howard appointed by the administration to fill the vacancy. Mr. Chevis was con sidered the best Postmaster eer appointed to administer the Carlisle o(7iee, and his removal is a matter of regret to the entire community. His offense consisted in his honesty, urbanity and the fact of his being an appointee of President Till' more. His successor, Joel Howard, the Cincinnati Timet is in forme 1, on authority that ''will face the music," is a man utterly unqualified, by intemperate habits and from boorishness of manners, to fid any position with either grace or ability.

Leavenworth and Breckinridge, who recently fought a duel on the Canadian frontier, having been issued by Police Justice Pcarcy, of New York, two officers went in search of the combatants. Mr. Leaven worth was found lying seriously ill of his wounds at a secluded house about two miles from N para Falls. He was then arrested, but as he could not be removed without danger to his life, he wrote a letter to a friend in New York City, who went before Justice Pearcy and became iretyin the sum of 5,000 for Mr. Leaven worth's appearance. It is supposed that Mr. Breckinriilge has fled to this State, whence he may, perhaps, be obtained by a requisition from the Governor. Warrants have also been issued for the arrest of the seconds in this affair.

Among the abuses which have crept into the press, there is none worthy of severer rebuke than the habit of indiscriminate puffery. The power of the press in this country is paramount. It is at once the director and reflector of public opinion. It embodies, perhaps, a greater amount of talent than any other profession, and that talent is kept in more active exercise. The conductors of public journals, however, have, as a general thing, a very inadequate idea of the importance of the position they occupy and the influence they wield. Many of them are content to manage their presses solely with reference to the pecuniary interests involved, little reflecting that by judicious management they could not only sub serve their fortunes but elevate themselves socially and politically. It has been thus that newspaper editors have rendered themselves liable to a continual and systematic course of imposition from all sorts ande'asaes of men and institutions. What should be the guide of the public in all issues of importance, is too frequently the mere mouth-piec- e of a mob or coterie. Independence of thought and action are not sufficiently arrived at. Occupying the position of a leader, and presumed to have a superiority of intellect and judgment, the editor should exercise his individuality, being able, by the force of his gifts of mind, to direct the thoughts of his readers. But it is not only in principles and questions of policy that the right and duty should be exercised. There is a grosser evil to which the press is subject, having been led into it through the mere good nature and disposition to yield on the part of its conductors. We allude now especially to the system of making great men. The newspapers are all active manufacturers in this department of business. They make them to order, and out of any sort of s. material. Heroism is not necessary Gallantry might as well be an obsolete emotion, as it is a custom deceased will the feudal ages. Bravery need be nothing more than pugilism. Intellect is not at all required. In fact, a skillful paragraphist, who has full sway in the columns of a newspaper, can make a great, or at least a notorious man, out of nonentity. There need not be the smallest particle of brains in the composition. No element, or lirrb, or fibre, generally supposed necessary to a man of mark, is required. It is the newspaper that can inflate the bag of wind and set it afloat on its way to the stars. It is the newspaper that can cajole the public into confiding to any sort of a man. The lawyer makes a drowsy argument be fore a sleepy judge and jury, and straightway it is announced as a brilliant legal effort, A surgeon saws off rudely a man's leg, and the morning paper chronicles it is a skilful feat in surgery. A divine reads a sermon, or else halloo it at the top of his cracked voice, and he is forthwith gazetted as an eminent, learned, elo quent, logical, pious, consistent Christian minis ter, who combines all the zeal of Paul, the meek ness of Stephen, the poetry of Jeremy Taylor and the burning rhetoric of Robert Hall. Should, under his labors, a few persons enter the pale of the church, it is forthwith blazoned to the world, especially if there be any worldly consequence attached to the newlmember. Indeed, reading newspaper reports, one would thint that the preacher did the work of conversion, and that that part of the God-hea- d generally presumed to have an agency in these matters was merely a secondary matter compared with Reverend or . This puffery of the clergy Elder has indeed become a grievous evil, and we desire our readers to stick a pin just here.

Next we have a legislative candidate, Never or an aspirant for the Common Council. saw the world so jrreat a man! He is just fitted for the post. So, too, when a man attains posi tion; the press is lavish in its encomiums upon him and his especial adaptation to the place. But we cannot point out all the instances in which this foolish puffery is used. Brethren of the press, it is all wrong. It U derogatory to our own positions it is not worthy of our stations, and detracts from our dignity. We should take pride and pleasure in being enabled to designate the truly great, but our indiscriminate way of say ing that every man who wishes a puff is great, is really disgraceful futhermore it is wrong. You injure thereby the man puffed, for sooner or later the bag of wind that he is, must be pricked, and then a collapse ensues. But especially and cruelly do you wrong those modest men of merit who plod along in life, laboring earnestly and faithfully, and accomplishing great things, where of the world hears but little. There are artists and inventors and men of letters who need and deserve commendation. Give them their meed of praise and you will have done your duty. Let the arguments of lawyers, the Eermons of preachers, the amputations of surgeons, the speeches of political orators, make reputation in their own right. We should encourage true genius and frown down all charlatanry. Ceorfi-fhc Presidency. Law We are highly gratified to see an indignant denial in the columns of the Washington Organ of the report that George Law was esteemed a pos sible aspirant for the Presidential canvass by the Philadelphia Convention. Judge Ellis, the editor of that paper, is unquestionably well posted up in all political movements. He writes that he has made diligent inquiry into the views of the delegates from all quarters of the country, to ascer tain whether any portion of the Council prefer George Law for the Presidency, and he has not ycf conretsei viA the fit tt man who favort kit jtrctcntiont. One member said he knew there was one George Law man in the Council, but he could not tell his name, nor could he point him out. Mr. Barker was voted against as President cf the Council, by many Southern members, on the ground that he was supposed to favor Mr. Law, but Barker's friends deny the truth of the imputation. He furthermore writes that he seriously questions whether a single decent, respectable, and intelligent man can be found in the nation who would advocate the claims of Mr. Law, unless previously purchased for a quid pro quo. It is said that Mr. Law has already purchased a press in New Orleans, one In Pittsburgh, and one in Albany; that he has secured the services of s, several puffers and and that if a million of dollars will suffice to manufacture a public opinion in his behalf; it will be accomplished. The whole scheme will be blown into atoms when the people tak-- s the question of selecting a candidate into their own hands. and Meeting i!t Trimble.

The Indian War in the West. The Pierce administration will soon find its ability and ingenuity taxed to the uttermost, in the prosecution of the war upon the Western plains, with the various savage hordes. Late intelligence announces the capture of Fort Laramie, one of our most important military posts The particulars have not yet been received, the express rider merely stating that the Indians had gathered there in great force and taken the Fort. We fear that the expedition now being fitted out against the Indians will result as disastrously as did Braddock's. The Government should have employed some two or three regiments of West-evolunteers lor this service, and appointed of ficers to the command who had some experience of the plains and mountains, and the Indians They would have gone out understanding, and if they found it necessary to fight, they would the know how to do it effectively, by Indians, cutting them off from ths buffalo, and allowing them no time to recuperate themselves or their horses. The Indians carry no stores with them, and de pend upon the chances of each day for their "daily bread," and can fight as long as they roam with the buffalo, and no infantry can cut them off. Western men, mounted on good hoses, and armed with rifles, and who are familiar with their habits and modes of warfare, would pursue and hunt them down, and whip them into submission at a saving of many lives and much treasure to the country.- - If they found it advisable to make peace with them, they would understand the best terms on which to predicate their treaty. To send infantry to the plains is the veriest nonsense in the world. Those who do so are eminently culpable, and should be held responsible for the consequences. The Indians and all non-timen laugh at the idea. It would only afford amusement to the Indians to whip infantry for the next twenty ycais. Such fighting would be comparative repose to theni. Well mounted volunteers are the only people that they fear, and it is the only force that can bring them to speedy terms, ad secure a lasting and reliable peace. PAPER FOR T E MAN OF BUSINESS, The Democratic State Ticket. Candidate for At'orney General. Our contemporary of the Lexington Ohserrer remarks with great truth in contrasting the tickets nominated by the two political parties of this State, that the individuals presented by the De mocracy are for the most part, young, untried, inexperienced men, of no extraordinary business capacity, whose nomination and endorsement by the Fnnkfort Convention was a positive imposition upon the people of the State. To demonstrate the truth of this remark tne editor who, was born and educated m Lexington, and is related by no very far removed ties to Mr. Robert Wickliffe Wooley, cites the nomination of that individual for the ofhee of Attorney General. He is willing to concede that Mr. W, is a young gentleman of capacity, but says that he is utterly unfit for the office. It would, ontinues the Observer, be difficult to find any one inthe whole Union of his age, who is fitted for such a position, and we mean no particular disparagement when wc assert that he is utterly unsuited for the office to which he now aspires. Mr. Wooley represents himself as a strippling, who was elevated on the shoulder of a brawny Irishman at the time of the August election in '47, eight years ago, and is it possible that the brat of '47 has, in eight years, qualified himself for the office of Attorney General for the State of Kentucky. What a change there has been in this short period; in '47, sitting on the shoulders of a 'Greek, at whose dictation he was shouting for his eousin, Ellick McMarshall: in '55, wishing to become the i dviscr of such men as Thomas Page and other veterans in the public service. If the Auditor was in doubt in regard to any matter, what would this youthful Attorney General do! Would he consult Harlan or risk an opinion! He would be compelled to do one or the other. The Attorney General gui les the other public officers, he often gives an opinion to the Auditor of Public Accounts, which opinion effects directly the action of every Clerk and Sheriff in the State, he tinws up every contract entered into by any public officer, and conduct all suits ins'ituted by the Commonwealth. This office requires an old head and a matured judgement, and Mr. W. has neither. He is now sc uring the State on his Trojan horse, while his opponent is confined by the pressure of his pro fcssional business, but we hope that the people of the State will not forget the importance of having this office well filled. The Crops in Indiana. Our Indiana newspapers are not half so confiden now of an abundant crop as they were some few weeks since. Heavy rains and fi jods have done iniurv in the eastern counties. In the vicinity of Vincenncs, Edinburgh, Danville and Shclbyvillc there have been very heavy hail storms, injurious to the growing grain. The frost has also had its share in doing evil. There was a severe frost at Vincennes Monday night, June 18. Near .Bedford the frosts last week were very severe. The Warsaw Republican says that on the 15th of June everything out of doors was glistening with frost. The Attica (Fountain county) Ledger says the worst apprehensions of farmers as to the injury caused by the frost to the wheat are more than realized. Those who have examined extensively of the wheat and minutely say that nine-tenton Shawnee Prairie is destroyed. It is thought to be less in the wood-land- s. The Boon County Pioneer says: Some of our farmers say that they will hardly save enough wheat to pay for their seed. This is owing to the late frosts and the backwardness of the season. Our corn crop has suffered more than we expected, and we fear that our harvest will fall far below an average yield. The Kokomo (Howard county) Tribune says A Gathering or Clans.

Three stands were erected, and the square v. as crowded with delegates, bearing banners and transparencies Mr. Bartlett presided at the principal stand, and several gentlemen from the West and South made speeches, and were received with great en thusiasm. It commenced raining about half-panine, but made no impression on the dense mass of people, in the way of dispersing them. At New York, on Monday afternoon, there was a tremendous meeting to ratify the American platform. There was speaking 'rom four stands by distinguished orators. Among the speakers were Col. John S.

The immaculate philosopher of the white coat whose private life his hitherto been beyond the suspicion of fashionable folly, has in his last visit to Paris been seduced from his youthful bran-brea- d paths of rectitude. He now actually eats, drinks and dresses like a Frenchman. He really plays cards with a gay and dashing lady. Alack for the frailty of human nature! Now that Horace has fallen, we may not count with safety upon the reliability of any man or woman. Says the Paris correspondent of the Cincinnat Gazette: One of the pleasant faces present oa these festive occasions is that of Horace Greeley, who appears to have discarded his American habits ana fallen into the French. It cannot be perceived .that he dresses; eats, drinks, or comports bim'iclf different from the old habitues of French society, which is a mitter of great astonishment to tao.se accustomed to Ins home peculiarities. While Dick Tinto writes to the New York Times, about a ball in Paris, thus: "In the card room were two whist tables, and I looked in to see who was winning. At one was Heraee (Jreeley, with our brilliant Lady So retary JIM. fiatt, lora partner; tlieiradversdries were Mrs L'e.ily, too good natured to be anybod.

Mr. Greeley sometimes found it difficult to proceed according to Hoyle, such was the constant succession of old acquaintances, who wished to ask him how he did. He once plaved third hand low in consequence, and, of course, lost the trick!" s. The Germans and the The Abend Zeitung, of New York city, estimates the decrease of German immigration, owing to g the hostility to foreigners, as nearly 120,000 for this year alone. In the Staats Zeitung, of Wednesday, is an important address from a German association in Ohio to one in New Haven, in which these passages occur: This is the hind in which they are beginning to nonris'i a universal hatred of e' rangers, that has already sprend itself with its poisonous roots over the Union. 1'c pie are not conteut with a mere hate against iiniiiitriact.s; no, they are proceeding to measures which should only be applied ia a land of despotism, not in a free laud. Let any one read the laws lattly considered in the Legislature ef Massachusetts apaiast immigrants, and he will find how far the hate of strangers goes, for they have at tempted to put us lower ,han the slaves to rob us To meet these of our right of franchise. efforts no other proceeding can be recommended but a union of all Germans and a thorough enlightenment as to what stands before us. It is then proposed that these two association, should unite, and ihat everywhere similar efforts should be made to form societies and bring up the Germans in a mass against the plans of the s. Nothing, we feel sure, would add greater strength and energy to the American party than this proposed line of policy. But let the German population unite, as is suggested. It would, before many years, rue the day that caused the commission of so gTeat an error.

J A Catholic Priest Clalmlna bis Wife in a Ceurt l Justice. The case of the people ex rtlatione Nicholas Stamber against Anthony which came bclore the Court of Common I leas of Cook county, Hon. John II. Wilson presiding, on Saturday, pre sents a curious picture or married lite, and revea. some strange practices on the part of the Catholic clergy, and some equally strange matters of faith on the part of the more ignorant portion of their COCK. It appears that about a var ago. Nicholas Stara bcr.then a priest of the Catholic church, wm united in marriage with Anna Maria bchmeder, a German girl, the dartg'uter of the defendant, and a good Catholic. The marriage ceremony was performed by Father Peter Kramer, in a private room, without t tie nse or the wcddiag ring, and without witnesses. In all other respects the marriage ceremony was pertormed according to the rites of the Catholic church, the parties agreeing and assenting thereto. promising to be man and wife to each other, and the priest giving them the nuptial benediction and prononncing them man and wite. After the ceremony. Father Nicholas took the girl home and kept ner as an upper servant or house keeper, treating her kindly and paying her wages regularly. Ihe girl says herself that although he always spoke of her as wife, they occupied separate apartments. Some three months since she left his house and went to Nile, Michigan, where she entered a famUy in the capacity of servant. Her own account is, that both her marriage to and desertion from her husband was in accordance with the advice of her pa rents and rnenns. To use her own language "she was talked into it." Up to the time of bis wife's leaving him. Father Nicholas had continued his public ministrations in the church, but since then we understand he has been deposed from the priesthood, as has also Father Peter Kramer. This suit was brought in the chancery side of the Court of Common Pitas, by the husband, to recover possession of his wife, whom he alleged was illegally detained from him by Anthony Schneider. The writ issned, commanding Schneider to produce the body of Anna Mary before the Court. It was served on Schneider on the 6th of Jan.-- , by S. T. Buckley, Deputy Sheriff. On going into the country to serve the writ, he found Anna Mary at the house of one Judson, aliout four miles from her father's residence, and took her there wit'a him. On Saturday the defendant appeared before Hon. John M. Wilson, in the Court of Common Pleas, and in obedience to the writ prodjeed the body of nu daughter. Ihe husband w.sa!so present. For the purpose of ascertaining the tr ie' state of the case, and of finding out what her wishes were in regard to her living with her husband, the Court ordered the room to be cleard of all persons except the officers of the Court, an interpreter, and reporter for the press, and proceeded to question the girl. V.'e are not, of eourse, at liberty to disclose all that was then elicited; bnt it appeared in addition to the above facts, that she did not consider the marriage legal or binding, because her husband was a priest; that she left her husband of her own accord; andthat she wished now to go with her parents and stay with them, and not to go with ner husband; that the reason that she wished to leave was that she had been educated in the her belief that she eonld never go to heaven if she lived in marriage with a priest; but that no threats whatever had been made to her by her parents, by the priests, or by the Bishop. She gave her name as Anna Mary Snyder, and not as Anna Mary Stamber. Jadge Wilson informed the young lady that the ma.riage was a perfectly valid and legal one, by the laws of this State, although it might be a matter of discipline in their own church; and that she could not marry any other man while hpr hnsbind was living; but that she was not compelled to live with him; and asked whom she would go with, her husband or her father f She answered promptly, with her father. The doors were then and her husband and parents, the attorneys on both sides, and the other members of the bar The hnsband was informed that the body of his wife had been produced, and that she was here iu Court; that the marriage, by the laws of Illinois, was perfectly legal and valid, but that he was not to nse any force in compelling her to go with him. The hushiinj now walked across the room to where the lady stood, and in imated to her his desire that she should go home with him, but she resolutely refused, nor could all his persuasions induce her to waver her determination. She left the. Court with her parents, and the last we saw of the disconsolate spouse, he was following in the wake of his wife, pouring forth his entreaties, to which she turned a deaf ear. JIt is said that "corporations have no souls. We c n believe this in the case of a recent transaction between the trustees or friends of a church and the bank at Hickman, if the tale, as related be true. The bank was unwilling to lend money to the church, though "prayed" for, and it would be no more than right that the bank should be, in future, denied the prayers of the church, and let go to the old scratch in their own rags. The above paragraph we take from White's Reporter and Price Current, a pap-- r rublished in Louisville Kentucky, and edited by W. L. White. We are authorised by Mr. Oweus,the Cashier of the Dank here, again.it which ihe charge Is made, to state that the cl.arsre is snqoalifitdly false.

Obedience to the constitution of these uni ted States, as the supreme law of the land, sacredly obligatory upon all its parts and Members; and sT.enl-fa- -t resistance to the spirit of innovation upon i:s principles, howtverspecioas the pretexts. Avowing that ui ail uoubtlul or disputed point it may only be legally ascertained and expounded by the jucli- ;.! power oi tne c citea Mates. And, as a corollary to the above: 1. A habit of reverential obedience to the laws, whether National, State, or Muiiicir-aluntil thrv are einer repealed or declared nncont-tationby the proper authority. :. A tender and wcred regard fo those act of statesmanship, which are io be lro:n acts ot oid.nary legislation, ty the fact of tneir being or tne nature or compacts and agree ments; and so to be considered a fixed an J settk--J national policy.

IX. The reformation of the character of our N tioual Legislature, by elevatin; to that dignified and responsible position men of higher qualifications, purer morals, and more unselhsh patriotism. X. The restriction of executive patronage especially i the matter of appointments to othce so far as ik maybe permitted by the Constitution, and consistent with tlie puolic good. XI. The edncation f the youth of our country in schools provided by the state; which schools shad be common to all, without distinction of creed or party, and free from any influence or direction of a denominational or par.izan character. And, inasmuch as Chricitianity by the Constitutions of nearly all the States, by the decisions of the most eminent judicial authorities, a d by the consent of the people of America, is considered an element of our political system, ard as the Holy Bible is at once the source of Christianity and the depository and fountain of all civil and religious fieedorj, we oppose every attempt to exclude it from the Schools thus established inthe S'atea. XII. The American party bavin? arisen upon the ruins, aud it spite of the opposition of the Whig and Democratic parties, cannot be held in any manner re ponsible for the obnoxious acts or violated pledges of either. And t.ie systematic agitation of the slavery question by thoee parties having elevated sectional hostility into a positive clement of political power, and brought onr institutions into peril, it has therefore become the imperative duty of the American party to interpose, for the purpose of giving peace to the country and perpetuity to tne LVioa. And, as experience has shown, it is impossible to reconcile opinions so extreme as those which separate the disputants; and as there can be no dishonor in submitting to the laws the National Council has deemed it the best guarantee of common justice and of future peace to abide by and maintain the existing Laws upon the subject ef slavery, as a final and conclusive settlement of that subject in spirit and in substance. And, regarding it the highest duty to avow these opinions upon a in distinct and unequivocal subject important, terms, it is hereby declared as the sense of this National Council that Congress possesses no power under the constitution to legislate upon the sul j"et of slavery inthe States wfceie it does cr may exi.t. or to exclude any State from admission into the Union because its constitution dors or does not recognize the institution of slavery as a part of its social system; and expressly pretermitting any opinion upon the power of Copgrea to tstablish or prohibi: slavery in any Territory, it is tbe sense of this National Council that Congress ought not to legislate upon the subject of slavery within the Territory or the United States, an that any interference by Congress wit.i slavery ss it ex'sts in the District of Columbia would be a violation of the sphit and intention of the compact by which the State of Maryland ceded t:i to the United States, auu a breach of the nation J faith. XIII. The policy of the Government of the aited Statt s, iu its relations with foreign tovernments, is ta exact justice from the strongest and do justice to the weakest, restraining, by all the power of the Government, all its citizens from interference with the internal concerns of nations) w.ia whom we are at peace. XIV. This National Council declares that all the principles of the Order shall be henceforth everywhere open'y avowed; and that each member shad be at liberty to make known the existence of the Order, and the fact that he himself is a member; and it recommends that there be no concealment of the places of meeting of subordinate councils.

Attempt at murder and Kebbery. corrsponJent of the St. Louis A RepHKicum furnishes that paper with the following account of a bold and reckless attempt to rob and er on the steamer Polar Star : Mr. Tracy, of New Oceans, a dealer ia West In dia fruits, left home for St. Louis on bns ne-- , and thence came on to see his relations it St. Joseph. Letoro leaving tbe levee at New Orleans he received some parcels of money, one of which amounted to 1,X0, and the o'hers to f.5.00), waking in all $11,000. A man caLing himself Mauvpeuny, from tlie Gasconade, some eighteen miles below Jeffer son City, Mo., was standing mar at the time. On the way to St. Louis Manvpennv ma: him self very agreeab'e and tried to cultivate an iatima- cy w.th Tracy. lie found that Tracy intended envo- mg up the Missouri river, and he stated that he, too. was cominir np nearly aa far as JetTerson City, and would be ela i to haie his company. T'acy said, howivvr, that he would not come np fur several days, and so they parti d at the levee m M. Louis. A few day alter Manypenry called at the private hinse at which Tracy was stopping, and said that he h id concluded to speed several days, in the city, and he urged Tracy to walk out with him. Tracy was busv, and excused himself. He called several times- for Tncy to go with bim to the theatre, or in see the curiosities about the city, but each time Tracy had some other engagement. At length, when he r as ready to cme tip tr-river, he went o the Polar Har, and found bis s name registered with foe the same stateroom. The room was t.i-- ' farthest back in the ' cabia. Tracy gentlemen's and adjoining the ladif lt for his attention. rather grateful to They came up to the landing for which M anv penny was registered, when, in coneciuence of tbe rain which was then pouring down, he said he would go, on to Jefferson City. When they got to City he said that te had heard that Boonv-.liwas the prettiest town in tbe State, and he woul 1 come ud ami see it. When they go! to Boonville he said he had just learned that a man who owed bim some money was in Lexiniton, and that be could get it by g'iing for it. This awakened Tracy's suspicion t .at ail was not right. He begun to th icJc that Manypensy might want to rob him, but the thought of murder never entered his head. That night ManypeDny, who occupied the npper berth, got np three or four times and went into the rnbin.bat persons were stirring about until daylight. About four o'clock oa Thursdav moruimr, when all was qiiet about the cabin and staterooms, Many-penn- v got up and went out again. Tracy concluded that he would get np then, as he discovered day light. While he 'honght of doing so he fell into m aeosation slumber. The flrt thing he knew wm h!se a horrible nightmare, which was occasioned by a blow on the top of the head. He received another blow upon the forehead, which laid it open to tbe He found bone and brought hira to consciousness. himself grappling with lianypeDny and warding ofT with bis arm b.ows aimed at hi head with a bar of iron, aad he called for help.
