Racine Daily Advocate (Newspaper) - September 16, 1853, Racine, Wisconsin A mate son Kern sport. The correspondent of the new York Tribune in Kyj letter dated Wilkes arc Pennsylvania sept. 3d, gives the follow an attempt to capture n fugitive slave a la test disgraceful and brutal occur Temh took plact Here this morning which i shall take the Liberty of communicating it thut no other person Here May take the trouble. Being an Eye witness i have Given nothing but what you May rely upon As facts. About 7 o Cloctt this morning an at tempt was made by a person calling him marshal a Brollier to col. Another answering to the name of Joel and three other assistants from Virginia to arrest As a fugitive slave a coloured waiter in the dining room of the pm unix hotel in this place. Immediately after receiving their breakfast at the hands of unsuspecting fugitive who is a tall Noble look ing remarkable intelligent and Active mulatto nearly White they Bidden by from behind knocked him Down with a Mace and partially shackled him but by a Des Perate Effort and after a most severe Strug Gle with the whole five upon him. He Shook them off and. With die Aid of his Handcuffs which were Only fist upon his right wrist he inflicted some Liard wounds on the countenances of some of tie so Atli Ruers the Murks of which they will prob ably carry to their Graves. But notwithstanding the fearful Odds against him he managed to break from their grasp and with the loss of every thing upon him but n part of Lia shirt and covered with blood he rushed from the House ail plunged into tie River close by exclaiming i will be drowned rather than be taken alive., his per Sierers lived twice at him on his Efty to the River with out checking his Speed and on reaching Tho Bank they presented their Large revolt called on the fugitive who stood up to his neck in the water to come out and surrender himself or they would blow his brains out he replied j will die they then deliberately fired at him four or five different times the last Ball supposed to have struck him on his Bead for his face was instantly covered with blood and the poor follow sprung and shrieked out in agony and no doubt would have sunk but for the buoyancy of the holding him up. The people around who had by this time collected in Large numbers were be coming excited and could no longer re Frain from crying out shame Khandj had the effect of causing the South Erners to retire a Short distance in Evi Dent consultation. The Sivc not seeing his pursuers came to the Shore but not Baing Able to support himself in the water he Lay Down on the Edge completely exhausted became senseless and was sup posed to be dying on hearing which the catchers remarked coolly that Dond niggers were not Worth taking South some one shortly brought a pair of Pun talons and put on the fugitive who in u few minutes unexpectedly revived and walking off from the River partly held up by another coloured Man named on seeing which his pursuers again headed him Drew and presented their revolvers and called upon him to step threatening to shoot any one who assisted the fugitive. Tho White friends of Rex instantly shouted stand away stand away ilex you la get shot too this was the advice As they would not have dare to shoot at that time and it had the effect of encouraging the pirates who kept advancing to Ward the fugitive and at the same Timu intimidated who Drew Back exclaim ing to the slave Pul Bill to the water Don t be taken the poor fellow seeing himself alone for there was a Gene ral draw Buck on the revolvers being pics a need hurried and plunged into the River where he remained upwards of an nothing above water but his head covered with blood and in full View hundreds who lined the High Banks. His Dai ments dared not follow him into the water for As he afterwards remarked would have died contented could he have carried two or three Down with him., la the meantime some of the thinking no Law justifying such barbarity were taking Means to have the kidnappers arrested. Judge Collins one of our most respected citizens and several others questioned them As to their names and authority to which they replied he was More like a Lunatic than a they soon however saw Tho sentiment of the Community was Strong against and drove off before a. Of incr could be found to arrest them. A telegraphic dispatch to the Constable in in Aletun caused their de Tention there but he was overawed by such pompous United states officers Aud allowed to go after their departure to fugitive afraid to come out there again waded some distance up Stream and got out above and was found by some coloured women Flat on by face in a Corn Field. The women carried him off to a place of safety dressed his wounds at night he will be far on his Way to Ward who can after Reading the above won Der that these Are thousands of garrisons and of Ulipses who exec rate the Constitution under the sacred name of which Nich outrages one at Wilkes Barre Are pretended to be perpetrated. Mrs. Stowe in her Uncle Tom s Cabin did not represent a scene More a Culish than the one above alluded to. Tom Loker the Drun Ken slave Hunter and Haley the hardened trader were Corn pared with the . Marshal and hit associates in the affair. The fugitive slave Law was adopted by a set of services hoping to a Liny agitation but Man p Roposa and god every attempt to carry it drug poor panting fugitives Back to causes an intensity of agitation Liat no human Law can. Repress. It is an instinctive love of god s Law that makes n Tim Lute out for catching fugitives that feeling is becoming deeper More intense and Universal each Day. Politicians might As easily close by a single enactment culled a Law. All Tho sympathies of our hearts and change All of the Lim Naii rare to , its to allay agitation by a Law which is made to support such atrocities is that witnessed at Wilkes Barre. We in the United slates love to talk ofor civil and Lle legions our High state of Christian and democratic Equality us compared with All other nations. We learn our children to hate Russia Austria and the bloody wretch who rules at Naples be cause of to licit cruelty to those who at tempt to overthrow their authority. The Nimnic of Ifa Naii the to mini Whipper is also held up to them As synonymous with the infernal and yet we Are More guilty than Russia Austria or tic Butcher of a plus.

How silly and ridiculous such a statement appears to those who in few of one of the partner s Mission to Elk orc Beloit. And and other places last slay is though we could not Sec through the operation and designs of the article that appeared in the Walworth county reporter and copied in the Democrat. Just As though we could not see through the article that appeared in the Bluit journal at the same time and instigated by the same individual and which influence even now compels that to Del whig Sheet to support the candidate of a Loco Foco Hunker convention. We have As we have repeatedly said no fear or anxiety with regard to the result of this election. Once and again Undjia again have the people of this District repudiated the principle of n party nomination and they will do it again.
