TROUBLE IN MITCHELL COUNTY.
From our jerferdsy’s erehnnw., we
L.. r gJt anr?r.im tnuiLlfi bctfffl''Q tli<;
OWn V* MntOUS WVUvIv iivt n “** w
white* and black*, at Camilla, G*., on
Saturday la.it. The various private
diepaLbe* from both partie* are con
flicting. Nut from wbat we can gather,
making due allowaoce for parti-colorcd
report*, the negroes were to have % Rad
ioal meeting at Camilla on Saturday
lent, at which, Pierce, the Radical can
didate for Cotigreet, end Murphy the
Elector on the Grant ticket, were to
make apeeches. It appear* that the
oolored people went armed to the Wet
iog. with a band of music. The Sher
iff of the county; with hie posse, inter
fered to prevent an armed meeting, in
compliance with Gov. Bullock’s Proc
lamation, at the same time stating that
&o objection would be made to an un
nnnad meeting. The nsgror# disre
garded the Sheri CTe cent mauds, where
upon a collision ensued between the
negroes and the Sheriff's party, whioh
resulted in the' 1 dispersion id the negro
party, and the breaking up of the meet
ing. ■ About forty persons were killed
and wounded, mostly negroes. Nine
negroes killed. The bureau agent ap
plies to Gov. Bullock* for,troops, and
blames the whites for the disturbance.
Th* white*, on the other hand, say that
all the trouble arose from the negroes
being armed at the instigation of Pierce
and Murphy. Bullock has laid the
whole matter before the Legislature,
who have appointed a special committee
on the subject. Our individual opinion
is, that the whole lass 4as gotten up at
the instigation of the Northern Radical
Party for political effect, and was faith*
folly exeoated by their vagabond allies
in Georgia. *r„
CoTTOtp—Cotton has been coming in
•lowly for the past week, though more
hSe been received this season so far,
than .w.as received up to tho same date
last season. The Merriwether cotton is
greatly retarded by reason of defective
bridges, or none ut all,' over Flint River
and its tributaries. The new bridge at
“Hall’s old bridge” place, is progress
ing quite slowly—while the Fist Shoal
bridge is considered very unsafe. Wo
fear that Griffin is to lose muoh of her
Merriwether trade this setuon from
these causes. What little cotton or
rises finds eager and numerous buyers
—there being abont an average of n do*
•en buyers for every bale. Present pri
oss are quite remunerative, though the
tendency ie decidedly upward.
From present indications, the section
of country immediately-around Griffin,
will produce nearly as much cotton ns
last year, bat not ns much corn. Oar
nooounts from other portions of tho
oountry, especially from the birgtr pro/
ducing sections, leaves no doubt that
from the cotton worm, dreiigth and
various other causes, the crop is great
ly reduced, so that on a grand average,
S crop of more than 2,000,0 0 bales is
impottibU. For these reasons, we are
folly persuaded that prices cannot he
feroed much lower than at present, while
the probability is strong for a consider
able advance before the season is over.
We again desire to caution farmers
against being too stingy about bagging.
Cover pour cotton all over, if you want
to get the best price; you sell your
bagging for more thau it oost; so use it
freely—it pays out.
THE ioUTHRU LING THE NORTH.
• The following sensible views ere ex
pressed in the Charleston Mercury, and
as the law tuskers, up in Atlanta, says
we “offer them as a subst-iti te” for
•ome crudo notions of our own upon the
samo eubjoot s ,
There can be no doubt, that throughout
the Northern States there is, and has
been from our first uni >n with them a
deep Sectional jealousy on the part of a
portion of the people ot the North
against the people ot tbs South; This
feeling was developed even during Gen
oral Washington's ndministr-nUon. The
subsequent efforts of this party during
the administration of John Adams, tu
usurp power'under tho Constitution,
and to render the government of the
United States a consolidated govern
ment, in the bands of a seotwOal majori
ty, occasioned its overthrow. This
overthrow was accomplished by the elec
tion of Mr. Jefferson to the Pr< sidency.
From that time, with only brief inter
vals, the polioy of the Constitution, pro
vailed ; and generally under the lead of
Southern mew in the Presidential office.
This predominance was called
the North, by the South, and was
continually to exasperate the people ■
the North against the people of too
South. The love of the negro—aboli
tionism Was largely to. Lm. attributed to
the jealousy of South engendered by
this io»*Kinary/»l«- The South only iu
tisted upon the rule o( the Consult) ion,
as the paramount law for both sections.
In doing this, it did not aggress hpon
the North. It only prevented aggres
sion*. It held up the barriers of the
Constitution, against usurpations. H
merely preserved the Government of the
United State# from the revolutionary
changes attempted by a party at the
North, which could oofy end, in deetroy-
-wordy of a most patriotic resentment.
The Democratic party was said to be
ruled "by the slave drrvers—they were
panders to Southern dominion.
Exactly the same sort of appeals to
Norther# sectional pride and hate, have
been need in the late Northern election*
The Radicals .affirmed, that tbs Demo-
platform was p»ade by Hampton
and Forrest -thst if the Democratic par
ty was inccessful, it would again bring
the Southern State* into the ascendan
cy, and place the North under Southern
rule—and thst thus both in the South
and the North, all the fruit of the late
war, woujd be lost to the North.
This is of c -urse all false ; and' the
Radical orators who assume such posts
tions, know them to be false; but they
answer, their purpose of keeping many
Northern people with the Radicals.
It is in vain, strair.St such appeals, to
urge that the people of the Southern
States never bad, and bare not now, the
least desire to rule the people of • the
Northern States. All they want—all
they aspire to, is, the rule of Ike Con
s/ifuh'on. by which protection can be af
forded, against the tyrranioal aggres
sions of the Radicals. They have no
right to rule,the North, nor (if the
Southern Stdjies are members ot the
Union of the United States.) has the
Nfath n right to rule the South. The!
Constitution is tbsirohmtnon compact by
which both sections will rule themselves.
Under it* broad provisions, the question
of. a rum of sections is an impossibility.
It is only when those provisions are dies
regarded : and either section of the
Union, overthrows the Constitution, that
soy question of sectional rule oan exist.
These views are 10 plain, under the Con*
etitution, that it would seem to be la
bor lo»t to controvert them, or te en
deavor to smother them by feelings of
hate and jealousy.
If the Constitution is put aside, then
all that the Radical oratora say is true.
The Government f the United States,
will be nothing but the arbitrary gov
ernment of sections, striving for mas
tery. Antsgonifm and bate must
spread between the different section- of
the Union, with a future of imp'non
nenoe, just ns certain as the change of
the seasons. We will then follow the
fate 6f all despotisms over large por
tions of the world when people are St
all enlightnned, or free.
V We learn from tne LaGrango Res
porter, that a very largo and enthusias*
tie meeting and Barbecue was had at
Luthersville, Merriwether County, on
tho 12th inst. Pome two thousand peo
ple were present. The meeting was
adressed by Gen. Colquitt, Judge Big*
ham, Col. Moses and Capt. Hugh Buch
anan—a strong team, surely. We
deeply regret our inability to have the
Stab represented on the occasion.
Th*.-e was also a fine meeting near -
Yarborough’s Mill, last Saturday. It
was gotten up in a hurry, but two or
three days notice being given, yet there
was a goodly turn out, and a fine din
ner. Cols. Peeples and Martin address
ed the meeting. The ball rolls on.
DEATH OF TIIE EDITOR OF THE
The Savannah Republican, of yes
terday, comes to us clothed in mourning
for the death of John E. Hayes, its prin
cipal Editor, The Republican says :
Sadden Death of Mr. John E. Hayes.
—The community received a nudden
, shook yosterdav morning by tho an
nouncement of the death of the editor
and proprietor of the Republican, Mr.
John £. llayea. Since the attack made
upon him last winter, he bos suffered
from nffeolioQS of the brain, caused by
the blows then received. On Monday
night he complained of an intense pain
in iiis head, assimilating somewhat to
neuralgia, but renmined at the olliue
and attended to his editorial duties un
til late. Wheu ready to go home he
was feeling eo badly that an employee
of tho office had to attend him to his
residence. On retiring to bed the se
vere pain prevented him from sleeping,
and he had recourse to an anodyne, and
soon was in a sound slumber, from
which ho awoke at his usual hour on
TuesJuy morning. Still suffering from
neuralgia in the head, he remaiued. in
bed all during Tuesday.
At night he again felt restless, and
ail his attempts to get to sleep proving
abortive, he took a teseponuful of lauda
num, whiob did not appear to have any
effect upon hi* nervous system. After
an hour or so bad elsmed he oonoluded
that the dose bad not been large enough,
and th* servant in attendance gave him
more. In all ho to >k about a large ta
ble spoonful. Soon bs sank into a sleep
which was never broken. Mr. Beard,
who slopt with him, on arising next
morning, says Mr, Hayes, AS he thought,
was sleeping tranquilly, and concluded
not to disturb him.
Mr. Beard, after breakfasting, came
down to the office and sent a boy u>"> to
Mr. Hayes with some letters. Whfia
the boy reached the house and went iff
to Mr, Bayes' room he found him Ujfcg
in bed with the muscles of hia
convulsive action. He tried 'o arouse
him, and finding it impossible, called
for assistance. Others in tho house
went into the room and attempted to
aWuke him from his stupor, blit in vain.
Dr*. King and Soherzer were summon
ed, and emetics were treelyr administer*
od. The use of a stomach pump was
also resorted to, and every means taken
to preserve the life of Mr. Haves—but
it was ton late ; and at about half pael
tea o’olock be breathed his lost.’

that the Governor vetoed the Bill on ac

THE EXCLUSION OF LEGISLATIVE
A Washington correspondent of the
Baltimore Gaxetto thus writes concern
ing the recent action of the Georgia
* Legislature,” wbieh reoolted in the un
seating of negro members;
"The action of the Georgia House of
Delegates, in excluding negroes from
that body on the ground of ineligibility,
has produced no surprise hare, as it was
known here in advance that thu move
ment would be made under the dicta
tion of the Radical Committee of Con
gressmen, who consider that 81 * c h ac
tion would he a trutfip card fn the Nor
thern canvass, as showing ths Radical
party wn« not favorable to negro equal
ity. It required a great deal of backing
and filling before tbe carpet-bagger# of
Georgia could be induced to move in the
matter, a* they professed to see in it
nothing but their own political over
throw. 111 resisting the proposition,
they urged that the negroes would easi
ly understand that they were being used
merely as tools, and wmtld turn from
them in disgust and join the Democracy.
This loss, howaver, was regarded insig
nificant when compared to the great
advantage arising to the Radical party
in the North to be able to demonstrate
to tbe masses tijgt the Democratic
speakers lied whjjp they charged their
opponents with Savoring negro equality.
This is the key to the action of the Geor
gia Legislature, atjt} the Radical wire
workers are chuckling over it as one of
the smartest tricks of the canvass.”
