E. J. Allen (search for this): article 8
s way down to Wil- lard's where he remained almost solitary and alone in the hall in front of the office, to the wonder of the few persons about at that hour, evidently looking for some one to arrive by the train momentarily expected. When the train's passengers for the house did arrive, the mystery of Mr. Seward's so early appearance at the hotel was instantly cleared up; for the tall figure of Abraham Lincoln was seen conspicuous among them! He was accompanied by two friends only, Mr. E. J. Allen, of New York, and Mr. Lammon. Accompanied by Mr. Seward, he immediately retired to parlor No. 6 of the house, which, with the magnificent suite of apartments attached to it, had been quietly engaged for him yesterday, and prepared for his reception this morning. His earlier arrival here than was generally expected was, we have every reason to believe, the result of advices sent him yesterday by telegraph, urging his presence in Washington at the earliest possible moment, as being a
Jim Allen, a free negro, for being caught in an unlawful assembly and running off from the officers after being apprehended, was yesterday brought before the Mayor, and admonished and discharged. The Mayor said there were over two hundred negro slaves going about in this city without homes and engaging in all kinds of mischief, and that the police were to arrest and bring before him all such parties found blocking up the streets.
Distressing casualty. --We learn that a casualty of a peculiarly distressing character occurred in Manchester on Friday last, the victim of which was a little daughter of Mr. Alvis, of that town. It appears that her clothing ignited from the fire-place, when her mother, as she supposed, extinguished it; but presently the screams of the child attracted her attention, and she discovered, to her dismay, that the little one was again in flames. The child fled in fright from the room, thus placing it out of the mother's power to render her any assistance. A person entering the house encountered the little girl at the foot of the steps, and by dashing water upon her subdued the flames. Her injuries, however, were fatal, and she died the same night in great agony.
tswood House. On passing the American Hotel sundry groans were given for Mr. Moore. At the Spotswood House, Col. Dickinson, of Prince Edward, apologized for the absence of Hon. J. Morton. Col. D. said he strongly sympathized with the feeling which had induced the meeting to assemble. Soon the expression of public sentiment, and the direction of public legislation, would have to be shaped by the people. He alluded to Mr. Moore's speech, and symptoms of disapprobation were given. J. T. Anderson, Esq., of Botetourt, followed in a few remarks, expressing devotion to the South, and alluding to the duty of Virginia in this crisis of public affairs.--Mr. Hall, of Wetzel, spoke for a short time in a humorous vein. He said that the editor of the Wheeling Intelligencer, a rank Abolitionist, was then present. He believed that Mr. Clemens, in the Convention, had followed the platform dictated by Campbell, the person referred to. He rated the Black Republicans soundly. Cries was made for
Terrible tragedy. --We have been informed of the outlines of a terrible tragedy which occurred in Sumter county, near Adamsville, on the 13th inst. A man by the name of Andrews, who was until recently a Methodist preacher, killed, on that day, two persons, Messrs. McLellan, and G. M. Condry, and wounded two others, Lang and Clyatt. He was immediately arrested, and hung on the following day.--Fernandina Floridian, 20th.
