Mr. S. Harbaugh, of Lexington, Mo., publisher of the Advertiser at that place, raised the names of Lincoln and Hamlin at the head of its columns. Thereupon E. Wisner, agent for the Etua Insurance Company, notified Mr. Harbaugh that he had cancelled the policy of Insurance on his office, and gave notice that not another number of the paper should be issued. – After this a mob of slaveholders gathered, seized upon the edition of the paper just ready for mailing, and drove Harbaugh from the town. – Wisner, the leader, is a member of the Methodist Church South. Mr. H communicates the above facts to the St. Louis Democrat.
