The condition to which Radicalism has brought this unfortunate State can hardly be better presented than by the statement that repeated usurpations have laid upon the State a debt of 130,000,000, and on the city of New Orleans a debt of over $20,000,000, and where taxation virtually means confiscation. The reinstatement of .. such a regime after it had been fairly overthrown at the ballot+ox makes the sufferers desperate. “The order and in junctions made and granted by Judge Durell in the Kellogg case,” aaya the unan imous report of the committee of the U. 8- Senate, “are most reprehensible, erro neous in point of law, and are wholly void for want of jurisdiction, and your commit tee must express sorrow that a Judge ol the United States Court should have pro ceeded in such flagrant ditrtgard of kii dutg, and have so overstepped the Umiti of Federal jurisdiction.'’ The Judges ul the U. S. Supreme Court shrunk from th defence of the Constitution before theii recent adjournment, and from the vindi ration of the rights of citixens, because they feared to offend or come in conflict with a gaasi military king in the Presi dential office. The Supreme Court sepa rated by evading action on the application for allowing an appeal from the decision ol Judge Durell in the case of Kellogg vs. Warmoth et. al. The decision is the one on which the present carpet-bag usurpation in Louisiana is based, and it is admitted that it cannot stand in law. “Hitherto,” aay the apologists of the President, “he has done no more than sus tain a decision of the United States Court.” Rut this Court had no jurisdiction in the ease, and had no right to make a decision. Vet, the President makes this erroneous decision of Judge Durell, the pretext for sending United States troops into Louisia na, to dragoon the people of that State into submission to the Kellogg usurpation, although a Committee of the U. S. Senate has pronounced it “null and void,” for the want of jurisdiction. Under theae circum stances President Grant is as much s usur per as Kellogg. If then over should be a change in Congress, the President’s conduct towards Louisiana will be a ground of impeach ment. Never man deserved it more. ToStißSCßlßßts.—On and after the Ist of July next the U. S. Postal Law requires postage to be paid on aU newspapers. Heretofore the law allowed the free deliv ery of newspapers in the county were published. The postage will be 20 cents per year, but we advise all our subscribers to pay for only six months, ten cents, as we believe the law will be abolished soon after Congress meets in December. A political revolution seems to be going on in the Western States. The town elections in Illinois held recently show large Democratic gains, and the municipal elections in Indians, held still more re cently, tell a similar tale. Among the towns of the latter State which have hitherto been Republican, Indianapolis, Lafayette, Laporte and Richmond have been carried by the Democrats. The London Muraing Pott, says:—lt ia not to the United States that any of us would turn in search of the fruits of good government. The corruption recently dis closed in all the departments of the ad ministration paint to a low moral tone, and the alwouec of that honor integrity which ought to be the conspicuous quality of public men. Judge Cilmor, of the Criminal Court, Baltimore, charged tho Grand Jury, on Monday, at the commencement of the May term, in reference to tho prevalence of gambling, in that city. The Jndge counseled vigorous measures against this rice. Saying it had been suppressed in other places by the Court*, and could be in Baltimore. Read the two articles in another part of this paper, entitled “A War of Races,” and “TV Overthrow of Republican Gov ernment in Louisiana," the first from the A<w York Hum. the other from the New York BrrM. These articles will give the reader a correct understanding of the cause ft the difficulty in Louisiana, and show where the responsibility rests. t ’ "* 1 W According to the Cincinnati Kmjuirn, is the general opinion of shrewd politi- Mji that the Radical party cannot carry *; djO. The last legislature of that Slate -vfj| u|,(<) have {Postered tho general eon-: fetepl Sod odium of the people, and its ' bWrafjltßpon public sentiment will oper-1 e to drive the present dominant party ' republican form of!, j St PnjtMXST*.—A very foolish practice I lias sprang up with the daily press —that of issuing a supplement ovary Saturday, ( W Monday, and sometimes on both days, j “ A P"* rf# ti #““ti is arrays gram ( as th% saati of the extern, for a hag , time this practice was confined almost ex clusively to the New York Herald, and | was a port of that sensational life which the Herald preferred to lead ; but latterly, all the dailies, good, bad, and indifferent, have taken to issuing supplements or ex tras, and all through a “press of advertise ments.'’ We suspect that no other kind of business imposes such a pressure upon those engaged in it as that of the press, if aU it says be true about a “press of adver tisements.” If those supplement-issuing journals are too narrow and confined in their proportions to accommodate the bu siness which exerts such a “pressure” upon their columns, why don't they enlarge It would be far better, thau this con tinual weekly issue of supplements. Harford Democrat. —We do not think any State in the union can show a finer set of country papera than Maryland. The spirit of improvement, within the - last year, has been exhibited by them to a very great extent. Notably among them 1 is the Uarfiml Democrat, published at Bel Air, Md. Almost any person can publish a newspaper, but to get out a first class, well filled and well printed sheet en tails a vast amount of time and labor. ■ Such an one is the Democrat, snd we urc gratified, indeed, to see that the enterprise ‘ of Mr. Rutledge is appreciated by tho cit ixens of Harford. The election for Mayor and Councilman ( took place in Cumberland, on Monday, and resulted in the election of the Democratic a candidates, by a majority of 180, against r an average majority last year of 69, being a Democratic gain of 111. j. The Democrats carried the charter elec tion at Morristown, New Jersey, on Mon e day, the first time since the incorporation of the city. The Democrats in Scranton and I’otts | ville, Pa., at their recent elections, carried , both cities by 230 and +49 majorities. A boat race at Baltimore, was among the pastimes of that moral city, on Sunday j. last. It was witnessed by a large crowd which had congregated at Canton for the purpose. We shall next expect to hear of horse-racing snd cock-fighting; os among , the Sunday observances of the Monumen jf . , .. tal city. ■e ‘ ■— ■ ir The Democratic Executive Committee ti- met at Townsontowu, on the 13lb instant, w and appointed Saturday. August 30, as the ;t time of holding the primary meetings; the >i- County Convention to nominate candidates i- to meet on Monday, September 1 , and the m committee adjourned until the sth of if August next. *' Lakok Expectations.—All the river C towns on the Delaware, from Philadelphia ° to Lewes, are expecting to become the shipping-ports and outlets for Philsdclpbia commerce. i . a- - Hon. Stevenson Archer will plossc ac ” cept our thanks for copies of the Acte and ie Resolutions of the 41st and 42d Congress. I. a The President will not appoint a suc ,r censor to Chief Justice Chase until after the reassembling of Congress. e The postal cards made their first appear- ance on Monday last. They were received in Westminster, on Wednesday. ' President Grant left Washington on Tuesday night, for New Haven, Con. and left on Thursday evening for New York. 9 France and Spain. In both France and Spain the feeling in favor of a Republican form of government ia on the increase instead of the decline. 1 That is evident from the elections which s recently took place in these countries. On Sunday last supplemental elections were held in four departments of France. A large vote polled in each department, and either the Radical or Republican can > didate for the National Assembly chosen, i The Monarchists nude no serious oppoei , tion, and their vote amounted to nothing ' in the general count. The only point was. shall the Republic be at once declared and surrounded with proper safeguards, or shall that action be postponed until the Inst ; foreign soldier has been removed from the , soil of France ? That France shall be a t Republic is the wish of fully ninety-eight per cent, of the people of that heroic coun try. An election was held in Spain on - Saturday last for members of the electoral b bureaus. In Madrid the Federal Repnbli s cans elected their candidates by a large majority, and the same result is announced ’ from most of the province reported. The e Monarchists were so disheartened by the drift of the Republican current that they abstained from voting, and left a clear s field for the ftienda of tho Republic. The 4 Federal Republicans favor a system of , government similar to that founded by the “ Revolutionary sages of this country —a “ collection of independent States with a I- central government of limited, well-defined j powers. The Unionists want a strong central government and less sovereignty in " the State*. The people prefer the first y plan, and are expressing their preference ! at the polk. The Carlwta being in arms against the authorities, dare not come to t, the pells, and the Montpensier party are n too proud to expose their want of numeri e cal strength at the polls. This being tho ease, the coining Cortes of Spain will be e entirely composed of Republicans, men :e pledget! to establish a government upon is the will of tho people, and for their bene n fit. Doubtless this will be done in both 6 Spain anß France. The masses have indicated their wish in a plain, unmistaka ble manner, and that wish is for the immediate establishment of a Republic, * under which they can enjoy “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.” The signs - of the times are propitious for the people e in France and Spain, and indications of a cheering character are also to be seen in Portugal and Italy. While the Teutonic f race are bending their steps in the direc -5 tion of centralised despotism, the Latin ! race are marching awards the goal of national freedom and individual advance ment.—Philadelphia Age. The Supreme Court of New York on Wednesday granted a writ of error in the case of Edward 9. Stokes, upon the express stipulation of his counsel to take the case immediately to the Court of Appeals which |is now in session. If the decision of that j body should be adverse to the application I of the defense for a new trial, the only power that can save Stokes is Governor j l)ix, and It is not likely that he will in- j i terpoae. If tho Court should the I I prisoner’s prayer, the whole business will have to be gone over again, and there is no telling how many months more will , elapse before a final disposition of the case j. can he reached. ! f LOCAL i£f AIM.

Davis, it will be re membered is now in Jail at Hagerstown awaiting the sentence of the Court for the murder of Abraham L. Lynn. On Tuesday the Trial Docket was taken up and No. 88, John H. Lindsay vs. George . Philips and Thomas J. Miller, was tried be fore a jury. Crout and Reifsnider for plain tiff. Verdict for plaintiff for $194.20. No. 91, Joseph Diffenaall vs. Henry E. Morelock. Tliis is a suit to recover SBOOO damage for the loss of a building destroyed by fire while in possession of the defendant, in Westminster, in November, 1870. Messrs. Maulsby. Rob erts, Smith and McKellip for nlantiff, and Messrs. Crout, Reifsnider, I. E. Pearson, Jr. and Merrick for defendant. On Wednesday the trial between Diffendall and Morelock was suspended, and the case of the State vs. Jonn Fisher taken up. This was a petition for an inquisition on Fisher, an insane pauper and he was remanded to jail. The jury declared him to be insane and a pauper. The first mentioned case was then proceeded with. The case closed on Thursday evening, the jury bringing in a verdict of S9OO. 1 Double Pipe Creek Items.—Jesse Angel, 1 son of Mr. Uriah and Mahala Angel, who so mysteriously disappeared on Fnday, April 11th, between 2 and 3 o'clock, was found by ; Mr. George Deni, on Satuday, May 10th, r hanging to some rocks on the breast work of 1 Mr. Joel Myers’ mill dam. Thus it appears Jesse had fallen into Big Pipe Creek, and was carried into the deep waters of Mr. Myers' dam during the night of Friday the 10th, (the general raking of the bed of the creek only , commenced on Saturday, the 12th,) where it remained in its watery grave 29 days, but is now recovered and deposited in the burying . ground attached to the Lutheran Church iu . Taneytown. Distressing as the circumstance 1 was, and still ia to the parents, they now have the consolation to know where the body rests, while the immortal spirit is where Jesus said, “ Of such ia the Kingdom of Heaven.” s Peach trees are in fall bloom in some lots j on the highesy>eaks of the mountain, around . Sabillnsville. Frederick county, as well as on * some high ridges in Carroll county; but on > the levels none are found, but the trees nearly - all killed, many of which are already cut down, 1 in order to prepare the ground properly for : replanting. Toe extensive, and historicpeach orchard on Gettysburg battle-field is without a blossom. Neither are there any blossoms in Mr. D. Long's orchard, Washington co. Corn planting is now vigorously prosecuted > by the fanners*. _ Houcksville Items.—The M. K. Sabbath . School was reorganized at Brown’s Appoint ment, near this place, on Sunday the 4th inst. f The following officers were elected, viz:—J. i W. Abbott, Superintendent: M. P. Allgire, As sistant; F. T. Newbelle, Secretary; Samuel 1 Sbarrer, Assistant; J. W. Davidson, Treasur er; Librarians, R. F. Shaffer and Ashore Davidson; Managers, George Taylor, John Pavne, William noock of George. The appointment of the teachers was to have taken place last Sabbath, but the weath er being inclement the matter was deferred until next Sabbath, at which time wc hope the friends of the Sabbath .School will be present to accept cheerfully the work assigned them. William S. Brown, Auctioneer, sold on Saturday, the lUth instant, at Public Sale, a tract of land, containing 141 acres, one mile south of Hampstead, for Amos Shaeffer, Trustee of John Tracy, at $12.60 per acre. Amount of sale $1,776.60. Five Wheat.—A few evenings since we took a ramble with Col. Wm. A, McKellip, to look at his three-acre lot of Fultz Wheat, the seed of which he obtained from Hon. Frederick Watts, Commissioner of Agricul ture, grown on his farm in Pennsylvania, the first season after importation, which yielded 360 bushels of cleaned wheat, from nine acres, or 40 bushels to the acre. Col. McKellip ex pects to exceed that yield, if no disaster be falls bis crop, and indeed, from present pros pects he is likely to do so. It is the finest lot of wheat that has met onr eye this season. The largest crop we have yet heard of, was that raised by Mr. David Knotts, in the up per part of Talbot county, Md. just across Tnckahoe creek, from Hillsborough, a few years ago, which yielded 42 bushels to the acre. We shall be gratified if Col. McKellip exceeds even that crop. Talbot county has always been noted for its fine wheat. _Hk.il Estate Sales.—The fine farm of 1711 acres, near Freedom, Carroll county, with fine improvements, and a large orchard, known as the ’‘Gore Farm,” has been sold to Mr. George Cuttle, of Baltimore, for the sum of $13,000, in fee-simple. A. J. Myers, as trustee, sold on Thursday of last week, the form of Henry Poole, situ ated near Fmksburg, containing 260 acres for $6,100 cash. Emmet k Gaytan’s Panorama of Deland and Comedy Company exhibited in this city on Monday and Tuesday evenings to four audiences. The description of the various scenes represented by the panorama was very interesting, and the acting of Shandy was good; his songs and witticisms were new and brilliant. The acting of Miss Duane as Mollie the Irish lass, was excellent, and both of them won the meed of applause. Scrapixo THE Streets.—Several persons residing in the East. End t have done a good thing by scraping the principal thoroughfare in Westminster, for the sake of the dirt, which is supposed to be a valuable manure. At any rate it relieves os of the mud in wet weather, and of the stifling dust in dry, to some extent, at least. Creditable.—ln his charge to the Grand Jury, on Monday, Judge Hayden congratula ted them upon there being only one prisoner in jail charged with crime, and that his case hart been continued from the November Term. This sneaks well for the morality of our conn ty, ana is something of which our citizens may well be proud. * Not less than ten thousand dollars were paid ont of Carroll county, last year, we are told, for frail and shade trees, that might have 1 been kept at home. Four different sides were i made to traveling agents, by one of our Car i roll county nurseries, and the trees resold, in the county, at a considerable advance to the purchasers. 1 Bachman's Valley Railroad.—We under stand that Joseph 8, Oitt, Chief Engineer of this rood, will begin to survey a line from about two miles this side of Melrose station to Westminster, next week. our citizens along the line extend to Mr. Oitt and his as sistants every fiicility for prosecuting the work.

A shipper informs ns that it takes every fifth car load to pay the freight. “How is that for high.” The depot of the Western Maryland Rail road, at Hagerstown, was damaged by fire on Monday. The fire smouldered from 7} A. M. to 12, without breaking ouf so as to show itself, until one of the waiting-rooms was opened, when it burst ont, but was quickly extinguished. During the storm of Sunday afternoon the lightning passed down the rod on Capt Isaiah Ltghtner’s residence, Union Bridge. Cap?..

We reproduce the entire article and bespeak for it from Republicans and * Democrats a careful perusal. It runs thus: “ The overthrow of the regularly elected if government in Louisiana, through the aid i of federal bayonets, is producing Its legit i > mate results in disorder, riots, and blood- H shell throughout the State. A severe fight a I took place yesterday, at St. Martinsville, il between the citizens and Kellogg's police, 0 and serious disturbances occurred in New Orleans. Some foolish youth fired a pistol * at the usurper; hut, fortunately for the ‘ good name and cause of the people, with- I, out fatal result. Wheu the administration at Washington prostituted the United •j States Army to the work of driving from 1 power the legitimate authorities of Louis , | tana nud installing the minority candidates j in their place the people of New Orleans, d compelled to ehoose between massacre and ° submission, yielded their liberties to pre serve their lives. Their city was in the , hands of federal troops ; their halls of leg

[. islation wen* filled with armed men and . surrounded by artillery ; their Courts were * broken up at the point of the bayonet ; their public officers were seised and con * fined on the authority of orders issued by •s a debauched United States Judge and ex ecuted by an unscrupulous United States 11 Marshal. The President, advised by a Jj. partisan Attorney General, approved and * endorsed the acts of the usurpers, recog e nhod the Kellogg gang as the regular State \ government and refused to allow any ap peal from his arbitrary decision. If the n people of New Orleans had then executed the law on the revolutionists and meted d out to them the punishment they deserved, n the streets of the city would have been 8 swept by United States artillery, and men. women, and children would have been the victims of a general massacre. The citi v ions weighed the cost of asserting their rights and declined to pay so heavy a price. They trusted that time and f.hc peaceful but ‘ . strong expression of indignation that arose e from all parts of the State would secure a their liberties from further outrage and * would at last restore to them those const!- n tutional rights of which they had !cen robbed. The forbearance of the people of New I Orleans was applauded by their fellow . countrymen throughout the Union. The i rebellion of the South had left behind it r wounds tin) deep and memories too painful to suffer our citizens to look calmly upon a renewal of civil strife. The South gen erally felt that the past needed atonement, and knew that any resistance, even to federal tyranny, would be cruelly used to the injury of the Southern States. But the events of the [wist few weeks in Louis - iana render it douhtful whether the pa tient endurance of the people of New t )r --leans will suffice to avert from the State the evil* of civil commotion. The Kel logg usurpation, emboldened by the suc- I cess of its first crime against the laws and the constitution, is seeking to render its * power absolute all over the State. The j ignorant negroes, rendered brave by the discovery that the United States Army is at their back, are prepared to aid in any i outrages the Kellogg whites may prompt. Kellogg and his associates have therefore resolved to override the popular will in every parish, and to place creatures of their own in every public office. Appoint ments arc made without any pretence of ; authority, and the hired ruffians known as , the •• Metropolitans.’' an armed force cre ated in New Orleans in violation of law, and composed of all the thieves and cut throats whose knives are at the service of any one who can |ray for them, arc sent | from parish to parish to make war upon the people, if necessary, to drive out the legal authorities and to install the Kellogg appointees. With characteristic coward ice the white ruffians prompt the negroes to take a prominent part in the fighting, and hence the trouble is fast assuming the terrible aspect of u war of races. Already one fearful massacre has occurred and the unfortunate blacks have suffered the most severely, their white prompters leaving them to their fate. In the parish of St. Martins, a state of civil war actually exists, and a regular battle between the New Or leans cutthroats and the negroes on one side and the citizens of 8t .Martins on the other ' side is imminent. 8t Martinsville is in a state of siege. We read of the throwing out of pickets, of the arrival of recruits I and reinforcements, of the blockade of the 1 Court House and of other military move ments, just as if a state of war actually : existed. Do the American people pause to reflect ‘ upon the fatal consequences of this condi tion of society in one of the sovereign ■ States of the Union? Do they persuade themselves tliat the liberties of the people i of 1/ouisiana can be stripped from them, * that the legally elected officers of the < Louisiana State Government can bo driv- J en from power at the point of the bayo net and the lilierties and rights of other * communities and other States be yet pre ■ served ? Do they picture to themselves * the hoi row of a war of races, or imagine 1 that in the event of a conflict between the I whites and blacks of Louisiana the scenes - that would follow could be confined to one Btate of the Union? The occurrences in Louisiana to-day are fraught with danger j to the pence >f the Union and to the lives i lof hundrpds of thousands of innocent , persons. The only hope of safety lies in ri the continued patience and endurance of 0 the unhappy jtoople of that oppressed r Stale. They may possibly be called upon | z 10 endure nearly four years of tyranny ’ and outrages, but even tliat will be better than a contest the extended evils of which Ino person can foresee. The probability is that the ruffians who now riot in usurped n power in Louisiana will before long quar j rel among themselves and aid in their own ] destruction. The same result has been f seen before in the State. At all events the j troubles of Louisiana—and, let us hope, of the whole South—will at least end with the present Presidential term, and it may he better to bear them to the close than to invite worse evils. Whatever can be peacefully and legally done to thwart the s designs of the Kellogg usurpation and to ri protect the rights of the Commonwealth 1 should be resorted to; hot violence and e bloodshed will only entail greater suffor -1 ing on the people, while it may cause the 0 iron heel of federal tyranny to press with yet more cruel force upon the neck of the „ unhappy Htate. i ’ s i Liwh.

Yellott, of the Towsontown Bar, have been retained as counsel by the plaintiff. A violent storm at Vienna. Thursday, , broke in a port of the western front of the , Exhibition building, and torrents of rain poured through the openings, damaging a large quantity of the goods. The grounds - around the Exhibition are represented to ha ve lieen rendered a irmraas of mud. A Wax of Emu. The develo I memo which lave been , made remurding the origin, of the terrible riot which owurrad in thq'low' of Colfax. lOiwjhjt Parish, Louisiana, on April 13, and thq-circumsfinticc* attending its tragic con | elusion, show a state of afraiw in that un happy State even more lamentable than would bo inferred from the telegraphic re ports of the outbreak which were sent to ■ the Northern proas. It afqH'ars that the tragedy of April 13 wua only the tormina lion of an aggressive warfare by the ne groes on the white population of the parish which had been in progress for months, and which had been attended with fre quent manifestations of violence, the ob ject of the negroes apparently having been to drive away all the white ix‘Oplc who would not submit to their domination. Since the day of the principal affray many now facts have come to light which are es tablished by sworn testimony of unques tionable character, and these prove beyond the shadow of a doubt that the blacks were the aggressors in this wretched busi ness from first to last. The family of Judge Rutland were driv en from their home on the Ist of April, nearly two weeks before the Colfax fight, after having their lives threatened by Wan! and other negroes. Judge Rut land’s house was plundered and destroyed, and a coffin containing the remains of one of his children was broken in pieces, by the mob. The offence of Judge Rutland was that he presented to Kellogg, the car pet-bag usurper, the white men’s story of the difficulties existing in the parish. Judge W. L. Richardson testifies under oath that from January last armed mobs of negroes had been in the habit of visit ing his house making threats of murder. On Saturday and Sunday preceding the Ist of April crowds of negroes passed there continually, cursing him and the ladies of the family, daring the Judge to come out, and threatening to burn the bouse. On the 2d day of April they said there was to be a fight, and told the Judge that “no G —d— white man” should stay in Col fax that night. On the next morning at •1 o'clock his house was surrounded by ne groes who endeavored to break iu the uoors; but assistance came and they re treated, firing on the house as they went. After this Judge Richardson and his fain ily fled, not daring to longer risk their lives. About a week before this difficulty a negro named Wait* hud fired into the house, and previous to that time mobs of negroes had come to the house and put cocked pistols to the heads of the inmates, accompanying these outrages with th* , most brutal threats. Mrs. Shackleford, the wife of a planter and large storekeeper, who hits always boon a Republican, was driven away from her home in thn absence of her husband, and when she returned she found that th* negroes had not only plundered her house, j hut had broken to pieces and destroyed ; what they could not carry away. She had been living in terror of the blacks for ■ months, and once before hud been forced i to leave her home. A year ago a white man named Yuun had been shot and killed without provocation, and several white men had been driven away by the blacks. S. E. Curry, the Postmaster at Colfax, a I colored man and of course a Grunt Repub lican. has made a statement in which ho says that he was repeatedly told by the ne gro rioters that he would be shot unless he took up arms with them. On the morn ing of April 10 when he went to receive the mails he was met by an armed crowd of negroes, who told him to get on Ids horse and leave or he would be killed. He went to Alexandria, and from tliat place sent a requisition to Sheriff Nash, demand ing protection for himself and the Govern ment property. Sheriff Nash was a Republican who had been commissioned during Gov. War moth's term of office, and had continued in the exercise of his duties with Kellogg's assent. A negro named Ward, who, al though lie had not lieen elected, had been permitted to take a seat in the Kellogg legislature, was the ringleader of the tur bulent negroes who had for months been engaged in assaults on the white imputa tion. This fellow headed a mob, drove the parish officers out of the Court House without the slightest pretence of authori ty fur doing so, took possession of the offices, and forced all who were opposed to their proceedings—whether white >r black —to leave the town. The Sheriff then summoned a posse to recover possession of the town and public offices. It is said that the negroes had repeatedly declared that if a gun was fired against them they would give no quarter, and that this was well known to the whites. The fight began at noon on Sunday, April 13. Sheriff Nash and his party found the negroes in position behind breastworks. Before the posse at tacked the town, they sent a flag of truce asking the negroes to surrender, finally giving them time to remove their women and children. There were 138 men in the Sheriff’s posse ; the negro force was much greater. The whites charged on the breast - works and took them. Eight or ten whites were wounded in the charge, and a num ber of negroes killed. Then the blacks retreated to the Court House, when* they treacherously fired on a party who ad vanced to parley with them after they had put out a flag of truce, after which the Court House was burnt and the negroes who remaimnl were mostly killed. .Some were burned and some were shot in the | street. Such is one result of the teachings of the carpet-baggers who represent the Adminis tration in the Sooth. For the sake of managing the colored vote, the bitterest feelings of enmity against the whole white race arc encouraged by these reckless pol iticians, ami repetitions of the Colfax trag I cdy are likely to be frequent. As to the ultimate result of war between the raees. I should one occur, there cannot be two opinions. Neither can there be any doubt as to the fate which in such a case would befall the Administration which has labor ed by every means in its power to produce among the ignorant blacks of the South just such a slate of feeling ns had produ ced its legitimate fruits in the recent trag edy in Grant parish. —New York Sun. Scotch fir trees have been imjMirted by the Agricultural Department for distribu tion in the Western States. The firm of Benj. Reid & Co. Nurserymen, of Aber deen, Scotland, have presented to the Gov ernment 300,000 plants of the true Scotch fir or Highland pine, and having been shipped from Glasgow April 18th, they arrived in New York last week. These nurserymen also promise, if the gift shall prove acceptable, to present 70,000 more firs to this Government. These trees aver age eighteen inches in height, and the planting season having begun, the Agri • cultural Department proposes at once to distribute those which Imve arrived. They are considered as well suited for extensive planting, being hardy and of free growth. Result of Dime Novels.—On the night of the 20th ult., the Post Office at Salamanca. Cattcraugus county, N. Y. was entered by burglars and thirteen register ed packages containing in all nearly two hundred dollars, stolen. Old professionals would not have blushed at the job.. Two boys one aged 16 years living with the Postmaster, the other boy aged 14 had already assumed the professional name of “sixteen string Jack," were arrested and after a severe examination acknowledged they did the deed, and claimed that the Idea of robbery originated in reading dime novels. Hanover Pa. has one hundred and nine dogs, and collects one hundred and nine dollars in the shape of dog tax. The Modocs Again. I Oy Saturday ipmiag kft thirty-three Mow a*, headed iV Caplin Jack, who wa#drerecd In the unifori*pf Goo. Uauby, xurprietd C*pui Haabrouck's camp near the lafa bcd, but aflet a sharp fight were repulsed, leafing six dead Indians on the field. The savages were cut off from re treat into the lava bods and driven into ! the timber, the tnwps capturing twenty one of their potuea, a number of pack mules and a box of army cartridges, the , possession of which latter by them prodn-! cing the impression that outside parties have been helping them. Four soldiers and one friendly Indian were killed, and j six soldiers and several friendly Indians j wounded. (lon. Davis is determined to keep the Modocs moving until all are killed. The latest advices the Modocs are twenty-five miles I nun the place of the last fight, hotly pursued by the Warm Spring Indians. It is believed the Modocs are starved out and their am munition is nearly all gone, making them subjects of early capture if good guides are with the soldiers to hunt them. Five Indians attacked the house of Jus. Harrison, eight miles from Walls Walla. Oregon, because he refused to give them tobacco, and they knocked the door down. Harrison defended himself and daughter with a hatchet, knocked two of the In dians down and was struggling with a third, when the daughter canto to the res cue and knocked the Indian down with an axe. Neighbors heard the outcry, came to the relief of Harrison and his daugh ter, and captured three id’ the Indians. The other two Indians escaped. The latest from the Modoc war Is that the Modocs are strongly entrenched in their Lava Beds, four miles south of their old stronghold. The Assistant Adjutant ; General of the Department of Columbia has ordered the commanders at Forts Colville, Lahwall and Klamath, and Camps Harney and Warner to forward reports weekly or oftener to headquarters, in regard to any changes that may be observed in the attitude of Indians toward the Govern ment. Ten companies of the Fourth United States Infantry. 500 strong, passed through St. Louis on Friday night, for Omaha. Their Colonel, Hunt, has orders to rc]M>rt to General Ord, but bis command was supposed to he destined for the Modoc country. Lieutenant Harris, wounded in the tight with the Modocs, is reported in a sinking condition. ORDER OF PUBLICATION. NO. If so KQUITV. In the Circuit Court for Carroll County.
