She wus removed to the other Side of the boat. Capt. U had no weapon on Board except a Small pistol a with this he appeared on deck and requested those on Shore to let go the fastening but no one complied with his request. All this while the men and Hoys on Shore were firing Stone into the Host endangering the lives of the passengers and Crew. The Captain was obliged to Cut away by we Beer pc by our late paper front the West and South West that the Hon. chm won died at his residence near Charlestown in thi a late on saturday the 26th nit.

She a now hanging by one rope. At this time they began on Shore to make their attack in Earnest. After elevating the Cannon to suit their purpose the match was applied and although there was much fright and confusion no damage was done except to the boat. The Cannon was a gain fired and the slugs and balls from the rifles began to Whiz around those upon deck. The Captain seemed to be the Only target at which they aimed with their musketry. By this time the Bort had dragged away the last stake to which she was fastened and thus got Clear from these blood hounds. The eat one of the commissioners to treat with the Miami and Pula Waltamae indians a gov. Be onions during hit life had Many warm friends in this Stato by whom his name will be lung cherished in honored1 remembrance. We Grieve to state that several of the latter years of his life were clouded Over by an intemperate indulgence to those poisonous draughts which have blighted the fairest prospects blasted the Hopes and terminated the existence of so Many thousands.

Now be it Knoo to unto the Reader that thi reverend gentleman a exhibited Attr Home months pent Strong symptoms of anxiety to break a Lance with us. Per Why we cant say and Are unable exactly to divine. A have never been engaged in a polemic controversy we Are not even or pfc sore of re Igloo i it never have been aed we Are not aware of being the ousted Wilt any one denomination of Christiane Mote than another. We Revere the Christian religion and we have a holy reverence and love for ail it professors of whatever denomination proudest always of Cir works be Good. About thi Mailer we can Only say that we would to god that we would look in the a gospel Glass a and a see ourselves As others see us a or say they do. Hence it in that we Are at a ins to conjecture Why it is that the reverend or. Kid-1 Well slim id tie so anxious m have a Brush with us. What Are the laurels that his reverence Flat tors himself that he will win Doe lie wish to grapple and Hose in with us in an argument moral political or divine if so we know of no reason for such a trial of strength. But if there were any we Are not conscious of any might in his Arm that should induce eve a to fear Ali non like the son it so in i . I.

Standing in the Emual Shower of Ball and a tone he re a a or in his Intercourse with the world a his rna Cei ved but one gun a hot wound and that merely grazed his shoulder. Upwards of forty balls and a lugs were found in the Wood work near where the Captain a Tood. Much credit is awarded to capt. G. For his determined bravery during the whole transaction. He returned their fire upon those who were pointing their rifles at him but his Small pistol was no match for the renew docs. We Hope the proper authorities will adopt measure to prevent a similar occurrence in this civilized Patriot. By excellencies As a Many would doubtless have still prolonged hit valuable life and ensured hit a High standing amongst the dignitaries of the land. I we perceive by an extract of a letter published in the Salem annotator that in Livonia ind on the 2id. Ut.,. Kelso m. D. Extracted a Stone which weighed three ounces and one eighth \ from the bladder of mrs. Baird a son of that place aged 8 years. The boy was doing Well. Ing i the son of Man allude to the i Ture or a body of scriptural expression same must be found which when taken to Goth or. O Kane in his Christian casket Oon or will read to Huff cd the son of after Call on or k. To come out before the pub he and prove the position above taken or k. Replies that he wiil meet or. Of a before the Public but As tie understand the controverted Point the onus Traband lies upon or. O Kane or in other words that . Himself must disprove the position above taken. . Thinks . Must prove the position he has taken whereupon or. Kid Well refers the decision of the Point to myself or to myself wit i two others named. Or. Kid Welt appears to Hare taken the position above with great Confidence and with an air of Triumph this fact together with the general Tenor of the above sentence in with the said position is taken induces Man has come anti without thi coming there is no other1�?� Iii we Ever pfc Jim m a position that in fou al prove by pot Tive testimony that there was no other coming of the son of Man spoken of in the Bible than that which has already a Ken place we have taken no such a Posi Tion and or. P. Was not empowered to Lake a position for us but simply to say whether the one taken by us was a Negasi live or he affirmative position further than this he had no right to say. Or. Parker is an eminent lawyer and ought to be better acquainted with the Law of evidence and the rules of court met Ltd it free that a should prove the Posta r Gard j0 the admission of evidence i Quot to in conf0 Jwj testimony deduced fron. Inference and a implication with that which is positive and direct. We rely on the former and not the from the Cincinnati Gazette. Wagers on elections. There is nothing More destructive Topahe elective franchise than the practice of betting a a a the result of elections. The direct tendency of this practice is to convert the highest privilege of a free citizen the Choice of his Law makers and executive officers into a sordid scene of gambling. It a mistake to suppose that bets Are made uie Ppel Rance Ltd a Tipton. Late Cir Illinois Patriot says that in i Turbville of that stale there had been 16 recent deaths by cholera. In Pekin there had Boen 9 deaths. It prevails in several other parts of that state. Hon. John Tipton. Some of our political friends have since in earnestness of feeling with a single View to maintain the prospects of a candidate. Although this is Tome time the Case the More general object is to make the consequence can be nothing less than to tempt those who bet to engage in All the unfair jockeying resorted to by gamblers on a tace Field or at a cockpit to in Urc the winning of their bets. The desire of pecuniary gain and the apprehension of pecuniary lots supersede All regard for the Public Good. Bribery perjury falsehood deception in alt its varied forms Are employed without a scruple. An election canvass instead of exhibiting the healthful vigorous efforts of intellect Aud intelligence of bold and Manty Independence presents chiefly the disgusting spectacle of imposition and subservience of fraud and meanness of violence and outrage of All which the prevalence May justly be traced to bet Ting upon elections. It is often openly proposed to Grade a series of bets so As to create a common interest in various results. These propositions proceed from associations of individuals whose interest and Agency Are severally unknown. When the bets Are made the interested parties on both sides take measures accordingly. They become judges of elections challengers at the polls come Mittee of vigilance and whilst apparently Labouring in a common cause Are in fact exerting themselves to Aid their Orvn private interests which not can Only be effected by betraying the cause they ostensibly support. There is no practice that Calls so loudly for reprobation. We ask our to Eliot citizens to reflect serious to upon it. A late new York paper Sava that at the time of the a Morgan affairs there Ycre six Hundred regular masonic lodges in that 6iate�?but, at the present time Only fifty Are in operation. And at the late grand procession in the City in Honor of the memory of a Only a about 100 marched Yalcs. Cular in which he Speaks of the presidents retaining the Wabash appropriation Bill chuckled wonderfully and crowed mightily upon the supposition that he had abandoned the Here. We Are sorry that they have no More ground for their rejoicing than we fear they have. But it is no More than we anticipated in this matter. Hence we have not joined in the chorus any farther than a Bare publication of his said circus Laris concerned the Gene a celebrated the 4th of july with the citizens of Philadelphia j a. The following toasts Given on that ou-1 Casein our friends will observe smell a Strong As gun powder by the Hon. John Tipton of Indiana an invited guest the democratic republicans of Pennsylvania May they present an unbroken front at the ballot boxes in 1834, in support of the National and state administrations. With Jackson and Wolf for Pilot the vessel of state will ride out the Gale without the loss of a single spar. By the whole company Hon. John Tipton of Indiana though from the far West he is no stranger a Mong the democrats who reside in the City of the Bank we know his Worth in the National councils we Honor his vigorous and sincere support of the administration in the face of an aristocratic Senate. The Indiana do Michat has made a great Deni of noise and a mighty ado about the governor election for some months past. It has calculated largely upon the Triumph of judge Road and Given very exaggerated statements As to his strength in various parts of the state. We fancy that this print looks woefully a Down at the on the 8th inst. It says a a Whoey j or May be elected governor it will be our duty As Good cil Azcui to Bow to the voice de even time we should feel As though we were eur cased in a a a net of triple steel and wielded i bludgeon a Large As a weavers beam a had we to thing to Enir Guitler but one whose Only argument it vulgar abuse Aud ridicule whose Only demonstration is a Cdr. Adam Glare a Aye so a a a thus says the dots he wish a conflict with of on the Field of Billingsgate a Tang amp vituperation if so we fear that his ambition will be disappointed. We know his Kerei Encey a Power Nis skill and tact in entwining his brow with laurels gathered from such a we a halt not gratify him St much at to assist him in binding new festoons of his Ivorite Evergreen upon his head or in adding additional freshness to those with which in is already crowned. Or does he merely wish to Bandy h Ard words with us Aud ascertain if he cannot Cluster his honors thicker around hit in this Wise spare of spate Yinqu Everond sir we know thy stronghold , thy missiles and thy Small arms spare at Ere we have to exclaim a the gives the a no tin Ido with his Tongue he buffets Betler than a tracer s fist zounds i w As never no be thump a with words. Since first i called my Broth Etc a father dad a again we say spare us for our readers Seku if not our own. We had much rather that Touse thine own figure a like faddy thou Wuhu list run the race but if thou Hast no a bowels Olcorn passion we can Only console ourselves with the reflection that a what cart be cured must be endured a is say to thee a play on me Duff and do a cd be he who first cries hold enough 1�?� of course your reverence will net regard the a Foresaid a a do Rio As having a postmortem Brimstone reference. Nothing More than that the linger of Public scorn and indignation May be pointed at the reckless creature who wantonly assails the Uno fending but finds in the end that he a calculated without Bis in rom the Gross and unprovoked manner in which or. Kidwell saw proper to assail the writer of this article in his Sentinel and rust of the 9th inst. We deem it our duty to Lay the Little connection we have had with him before the Public together with some explanations and comments the Fountain head of the whole matter was a Call Marie upon us by or. Kidwell himself in his paper of the 22d of March last to decide whether he of or. Of Kane should take the affirmative of the theological question which a about to he discussed by them in this Village. In that paper or. Kidwell thus writes a there Are three at Law in the town of Conners Viltes he Hon. Oliver a Smith Caleb b. Smith and Samuel Parker Esq is. They Are All gentlemen of High respectability a professional charac ters and or. Of Kane or. A a Kaae select either or if he choose All these gentlemen As arbiters of the question a Lay at the papers containing the remarks of both parties in regard to the debate in question before them and we pledge our selves to abide the , be it what it May. Isaac Thomas Esq. Of Connersville is respectfully requested by us to attend to this part of the business with or. Of Kane and transmit the decision of these gentlemen or of either of them As or. Of Kane May choose and As soon As the decision can be bad we Are ready to agree of the rules tin he takes and not Call upon another to disprove the tunability of the position. The concluding part of the above sentence makes me still More confident in the correctness of the opinion i Tkavc Given. Or k. Says that Quot All the Sublime figures used in scripture when speaking of the coming of the Ron of Man allude to the same event meaning the coming a Long since taken to show the bearing of these figures is certainly an affirmative position susceptible of proof and calling for it when controverted i took upon it in this Light. The scripture says something like this a i am god and without me there is no now to prove the position above taken it would seen that a text of scripture or a body of scriptural expressions must be found which when taken together will read to this effect a Theson of Man Lias come and without this coming there is no if this be the me doctrine a text of scripture May be found or a body of scripture which will prove that All the coining of the son of Man spoken of have Long since taken place As conclusively As one May prove from the scripture that god is the Only god. 8. W. Connersville la april 21, 1834. The last Rule of debate proposed by it thi a the question at Issue shall stand for die ,. A a a a a w. R�.k., by i. Kidwell the affirmative and we the in the same paper in which he publishes the a i Bove or. Kidwell makes the following Rema Kahle remarks. We publish them entire that or. I. May enjoy with our Reade the full Benefit and Honor that he is entitled to for making them a to the rules of debate proposed by in. 0 , we have no objection except to the last article that we shall not accept if we properly understand it. Or Parker tvs referred to for the simple purpose of deciding whether the position taken by us in our discussion with thelier or. Kay of a negative or an affirmative position. This question or. Parker has decided he says the position is an affirmative one a and we Are willing so far to he bound by his decision. Or. Parker in making out the decision in our Humble opinion has used very indefinite language and without some qualification would leave the question still unsettled. After or. P. Decides fiut we Are hound to prove our position be gives what he appear to think a parallel Case for illustration a and then uses an if in concluding his decision if the parallel Case As he supposes is really such. But what if it is not a parallel Case who is to decide this question the Case to which or. Parker refers As a parallel Case has not the least resemblance to the one in question. We to Isaiah Chap. Xiv 5. A i am the lord and there is none else there is no god beside he then concludes that to prove the position we have taken a it would seem that a text of scripture or a body of scriptural expressions must be found which taken together will Reed to this effects the son of Man has come. And without this coming there is no other Here or. Parker has taken upon himself not Only to decide the question but to restrict the evidence by which our Posi lion must be supported. Who made or. Parker arbiter of the specific character of evidence we must deduce will he or any other Man dare to say that our position is not susceptible of proof Only by evidence of that character he h.3 pointed out if it i Why should we be restricted in regard to the kind of testimony by which our position is to he established we cannot express our astonishment at the Liberty or. Parker has taken to make out his decision does or. Of Kane in tend by his article that we shall be restricted in our evidence As or. Parker seem to insinuate if he does we would have him to know we Are not quite destitute of common sense. We Are willing to abide by the decision of or. Parker on the question revered to him and nothing More. To show that or Parker a sup posed parallel give us a new position and one that we have Well now gentle and Lis Ilei what do you think of that for the Sake of dome pet Nance Fot our suit ire y at of toe opinion Dot we should be Girt ourself with sack cloth and Ash it get Down on out Bare Knees and Wilk All the by thereon to the knowledge Loving City and thee humbly Kite his reverence a big toe once on a Lime mighty Monarch did thu to the Pope of Rome. And surety we can do no Lees to the reverend Jonathan Kidwell preacher of trim Man and unconditional salvation Tau Adam s family a but Stop a moment let us reason the matter. Are not the floundering of his reverence Noi tag Moi than the quaking Aud whining consequent a pan the be Irma Corner in which he at last films himself a i it any tiling More than a a fearful looking fat a premonition of the horse foot ind dry Goon defeat which the feeling of his Bones we a assumes h n is pending Over him did not his reverence think it would be mighty consoling if he could Only fix it so that he could exclaim he returned beaten and routed from the Fields a a this All comes of i a that a my Way a if that Fucker Fitti envy tit my feel to must Good right Arm untied in very deed i in std Hare Discoed Pond homier unlit he was tick of the Thoi it of verily that would Hava co a Erbil Bis defeat right handsomely. But let us look at the nature of our sins Fot a moment. Has the Reader been Able to discover them As yet we venture to say that be has not a Veu though he May hav tortured his brain Union the wheel and rack to have effected it. None but the frightened see hobgoblins and exclaim Troug chattering Teeth and Ashy lips a Flo if i am Here i saw a ghost a it is plainly inf Erable from or. Kid Wells observation that he expected us laconically to Ray Quot in the discussion of said question or. Kid Welt must take the affirmative and or. O Kane tin negative a All that we Din say amounted to no More than this if we know Auy thing about the King s English and nothing More was Eye pretended by any Bady except ids reverence new withstanding All his a i so a a inferences and fwd but this is the first time that Ive that it indicated a Wanto a goed Breed ing and common politeness in any one to exp Fau.

Kidwell he Anhly opines that in making out our opinion we have a used very indefinite Tanguag a a and speaking of the Case that we introduced for exemplification he says he gives what he appears to think a parallel Case Juril lust ration a and then uses an rvs of Wen eluding his decision if the parallel Case As he supposes is really such. But what n if is not a parallel Case ? who is to decide flow a Friend Jonathan a sup pose no body decide this question what will be the quantum of damage think you1 the main question you say was decided he fore.
