According to prctioqs notice given by hand biIL
Mr Epperson delivered an address last night at

Gunziazciitt "XJpmi me iiuporiaiu HK;aniHer.fcta
of our Stale Jr. Epperson gave his views clearly
and al considerable length In the course of his
remarks he intimated that Cos. Bell teas a seces-
sionist; basing his hypothesis upon the fact that a
majority of the State Rights men of our State
were giving him their support
Jfr. Epperson was particularly severe upon S
Carolina and in his denunciations of nullification
secession and every other practical measure for
resisting a mijonty in Congress he even surpassed
Gen. Houston. In fact the leading Whigs and
Democrats of the present day instead of being at
issue as formerly upon the subject of State Rights
appear to be vicing with each other in ridicule and
abuse of the only State that would interpose those
rights for its protection against the acknowledged
usurpations of Congress. It has now become so
fashionable to abuse South Carolina that even
candidate even for the tiCce of Connable seems
to think his speech incomplete until he has launch-
ed forth in expressions of holj horror and patriotic
indignation at w hat he calls the treason of that
State. Well we suppose this must be a popular
theme and one that is deemed essentially neces
sary to secure success m our elections So long
as this is the case we rfiall expect all our candi-
dates both higs and Democrats to be sufficient-
ly abusive of South Carolina to suit the popular
Very many of the sentiments expressed by Afr
Epperson mtt our approbation ; and w e have only
to regret that he seems to have adopted the idea
now so prevalent that a State Rights man cannot
be a firm and consistent friend of this Union.
O James W. IIendenou Esq addressed the
citizens of Galveston at the Market last Monday
nighL We were deprived of the pleasure of be-
ing present; but have heard the speech Fpoken of
in terms of much approbation as a full frank and J
unreserved declaration of the speaker's views on
all the leading questions before the people Though
we may and probably do differ with Mr. Hender-
son on some questions yet we have alwajs given
him credit for being bold candid and consistent in
hu opinions; which qualities are the more lobe
appreciated in proportion as intrigue and politicaj
treachery become the order of the day. We hear
Mr. Henderson's profpects of success spoken or
favorably by many ; but among so mauy candi-
dates it is no easy matter to predict results.

JohnW. MaJdox as seconds and accessories
None of the accused have yet been found and it
is supposed they have left the State.
The quarrel tint resulted so fatally originated in
some political differences as is generally the case.
Mr Frost was one of the editors of the Crescent
and from him the challenge proceeded. We un-
derstand the parties were both Whigs- The New

you find that a enme has been committed to bring
in a bill accordingly. Let me read the law to you
which is this:
"If any person shall voluntarily engage in a

life and death should ensue the survivor shall up-

due conviction of either of said offences shall be
punished as a felonious assaulter Sy fine not ex-
coedmg two hundred dollars and imprisonment

I had honed irentlemen that the barbarous prac

To the Editor of the Beacon :
You have thought proper to insert in yonr paper
an attack upon me by Simon Mussina. My opin-
ion is that newspapers are neither the proper chan-
nel for abuse nor the adjustment of personal mat-
ters It was not my intention to have taken any
notice of it; and I am only induced to do so now
from the improper use that has been made of it
and not because I care for the injury it may be to
me personally I presume however as an act of
justice you will give this an insertion.
1 begin by saying that every allegation con tun-
ed in Mr. Mussina's card or in Mr Howards let-
ter that charges rae with offering to bargain"
"hamper" or sell the Whig vote or connects Mr.
Hord in the transfer of six hundred or any other
number of votes on the Rio Grande is a gross mis-
representation without the least foundation in
truth to support it. --lnd I have the written state-
ment of Air Stuart to prote it.
. Many reasons existed wh I wished Mr. Howard
defeated. I knew he was not preferred by Mr.
Muart who is a leading member of that party
friendly to Gen. Houston. I also had good cause for
believing that Mr Stuart did not desire the success
of Geu McLeod or Mr. Potter. It was we I un-
derstood by all at all conversant with popular feel-
ing in the District that Mr. Howard could not
against any single competitor obtain a majority;
and if elected at all it wou'd be by a division of
votes amongst the many candidates. I would have
supported either Mr Potter or Gen McLeod with
all the zeal at m command but had no relations
with either that would have prevented me from
uniting on one less acceptable as the means of
defeating Mr. Howard 1 was politically opposed
to alL- Under these circumstances! held the con
versation with Mr. Stuart in order tn asertain if
one less objectionable to me than Mr. Howard and
one more agreeable to him and Gen. Houston's
friends than Howard .lcleou or rotter and one
whose prospects of success would be such as to
justify the attempt to concentrate upon him ; and
I mentioned the name of A. J Hamilton Eq of
Austin I did not understand Mr Stuart to make
any other objection than that at so late an hour in
the canvass it was impossible that it would suc-
ceed In speaking of the object'ons to Mr Howard
and the dissatisfiction that prevailed against him
in the District I mentioned that those persons at
Brownsville who had been the means of giving
him six hundred votes were opposed to him ; and
saia l uenevea itir. iiord would unite on any can
didate most likely to defeat him. Although he had
told me he was a friend to Gen McLeod the in
ference in relation to him arose from m know-
ledge of his hostdity to Mr Howard; nor did I
believe he would unite on any other nnless it was
ascertained th it Gen McLeod could not succeed.
At this time but little was known of the course
the canvass was likely to assume or of the popu-
larity and strength of either of the gentlemen op-
posed to Mr. Howard That I assumed to pledge
Mr Hord to any line of conduct ar promised any
thtug for him is a gross perversion of truth; and
thuse two friends Mussina and Howard at the
time they made the statement knew it
This conversion was repeated by Mr. S'uart
to Mussina; he to Mr. Howard; he to Gen Bates.
hen it was reported to me it had assumed the
form of wilful and gross misrepresentation ; and
was subsequently greatly modmed by air Howard
in his letter to Gen. Bates. All the parties engaged
in this exaggeration were then on the spot. I pro-
posed to have a personal interview with them at
once; iu this I was overruled. Before I could
procure a copy of bis letter to Gen. Bates aud
Mr. Stuart's written statement of our conversa-
tion Air. Howard thought proper to leave Galves-
tou; he had been conticted of giving an untrue
version of the conversation and to avoid the
shame aud disgrace of exposure eudeavored in his
letter to Gen. Bates to bring new issue into the
controversy that arc equally unfounded and untrue.

When I understood that Mr. Howard had left
this unfinished affair in the hands of his friend
Mussina and he was reading it in corners I felt
great surprise ; and still more so. when it made it
appearance in a newspaper. No honorable roan
will justify him. Soon after be left I caused to
be mailed to him a letter endorsing Mr. Stuart's
stattment and there I proposed to let the matter
rest for the present. And if it has been brought
before the pnbhc it was not by me.
The attempt to connect my hostility to him on
account of the Federal Court is but a trick in his
extremity to arrest the downward tendency of his
cause. It will doubtless surprise many to learn
that at Washington and while here on many oc-
casions he avowed his friendship for the Jndge ;
ridiculed the charges; said he had only presented
them from a sense of duty; and promised to give
a written statement exonerating himself from any
connection with the affair. He was prepared and
intended to make a speech exposing the memo-
rial when he should present it; but was deterred
from doing so by a threat from Generals Houston
and Rusk. In relation to the clerkship hetpolo-
gized for the injustice done me; said be had no
hand in it that Gen. Rusk was alone to blame.
I told him I did not care for it: that I viewed it
only as an exhibition of petty spleen and malice
towards myself that had faded in its intended
Too many causes of opposition to Mr. Howard
exist to enter upon a lengthy detail ; they are be-
fore the public. Amongst those that operated on
me was the suspicions attitude he assumed at so
late an hour on the compromise. II is course had
disgusted all parties with him but the creditors of
Texas who hailed hn as their champion. H a
had been personally rude to General Taylor and
habitual as all know in his denunciation of tho
President. He isa trimmer in politic a claas
that never find favor with any party. He- has no
c'aim upon the Wbigs ; he was equally objection-
able to Gen Houston and his friends because they
well knew his ambition aspired to the overthrow of
Gen Houston; and his course m Congressn the
river and harbor bill and other matters had been
hostile to him; and never nntil he found he was
utterly prostrate without that interest did he enter
into any terms with that party. It is a coalition
from the necessity of the case ; should he be elect-
ed he will plead duresse and violate the compact.
I feel justified in using towards Mr. Howard any
language or epithet I might choose to indulge in.
It is his own hobby and with it he defeated an old
sailor (Pdlsbnry) who knew more about handling
a rope than vituperation towards an opponent. Ha
commenced the same game towards Gen. McLeod
but received a rebuke so withering that not only
made him call for quarter but excited the compas-
sion of all for him. He has been more humbla
A word in relation to M r. Mussina. I had known
him since 1837; no cause of hostility had arisen
to my know ledge between us. I had given him
every facility in the preparation ot his suit; I di-
rected he should have copied all the papers he
wanted which was done exceeding two hundred
dollars on credit. He had free and unrestrained
access to all the papers against the serious and
repeated remonstrances of the parties opposed to
him. He was charged with abstracting important
papers in this smt from the archieves in Mexico.
I thought the charge might proceed from hostility
or jealoasy and still gave him access to the pa-
pers. So far as I had feeling it was in his favor.
I knew many of the defendants and of course
wished them success.
He as well as Jr. Hord was defending against
the same claims ; the defeat of one was the defeat
of both. If the defendants prevail I have under-
stood some contest between them will arise ; what
it is I have never heard. The idea that the Jndgo
and Clerk of the Federal Court an election for
member of Congress a personal assault uponhim-elf-the
