The Camilla Riot—- Ju-t before going to press we received from the Albany Noes further iuto/ma lioo in reference to the riotia Camilla It teems from the evidence of different men of Mitobcl oounty, sworn before the proper authorities that on Saturday, she 19 h iust., it was made known to the citizens of Camilla, that John Murphy of Albany, Ga. had issued his circular, and secretly cirou'ated the same among the colored men of Milch e& county, urderiug theta to briDg their arms with them to the political mee’- iug advertised f.r that day to Lc held at Camilla. The iuformat.ion was cor roborated by siateuieots nude by sever al persons wbo cam» in from the roads in the direct!>n of A.btuy, sating that armed negroes were ass iului 'g in large numbers at China Gr;\o church, wai - ing for the delegation f.oui Alba y, beaded by sail Murphy and \V. !' i’icrc , the candid .to f.r Congress, who were to be the speakers for the occasion, liytbo request the ci'ix -us, M.

The sheriff delivered the message to Mur phy and Pierce, the leaders of the procession, and they replied that they bad notbiug to do with those armed men, that the gUua held ig od to them, aud they were id the habit of carrying them wherever they went. The sher iff replied that if they entered the town with their music a„d banners, followed by aimed men, that there would be a breach of the peace acd be would not be responsible for tbe consequences. Shortly after the column thoVed into town, headed by fierce, and one Putney, white, in a buggy armed with a dou ble barrel shot gun, spencer rifle, and two pistols With a quantity of extra amunilion, (as was afterwards ascertained,} next, a four horse wagon, containing a Band, and a num ber of armed negroes followed the column, the music playing, and the crowd noisy and threatening in their conduct. Murphy and Phillip Joiner, negro, in a buggy in the rear. Jas. Johns who was intoxicated ordered the music to stop, whice was not obeyed, the Column moving on, when about twenty steps from him, his gun was fired, but was pointed in a different direction, the contents struck the ground about 12 feet from him. Tbe col umn immediate y fired a volley; some shot at Johns but the most of them aimed at an un armed crowd aome thirty Or forty steps off, wouading six. Immediately some twenty men sprang to their arms and fired a volley into the column, killed twb hogroek and a hilihtier wounded. The negroes immediately broke to a thick cluster of timber 100 yards north of the Com t Bouse. At this point Pierce tried to rally his foroes. The citixens, to the number of RO, part of them mourned, made a charge and completely routed the whole force Tierce flying through tbe woods and fields ; Murphy and Phil. Joiner escaping in a buggy bp the road towards Albany. Seven negroes were killed, all of whom were genteelly bur ied by a committee appointed for that pur pose. From tbe best information we have been able to gain, is, that thirty or forty was wounded, all of whom have bean properly cared for. Murphy, Pierce and made good their e-cape, with but little injury to themselves. K AYTO.V’S OIL OF UFE-Cbres Earaohw burns, Cuts, Stings,Ae. KaYTOX.S MAGIC CURE—Cures Diari rb«.t and Cramp Cholrcs.

I THE DEMOCRACY fN COUNCIL! A MaKßlflcfitt Barlierue and Grand lh mou'traiioii in iat!rarg«! Great Torchlight Procession siiml Appropriate Ti-utisput" elides! It is impossible for us to give n full unci correct account of the great dem unelrution t f lire Democracy in this jfliud} hn Wednesday hist, in the ghtiTt time and limited space at our com mand before going to press. It would retju ire a day to get up a true ami complete sko'ci; w hich we have to prtn dense In a few hours. Therefore, any shortcoming or omission in this report must be attributed to the causes given ; and not from, any want ol dftsire to “do the subject justice.” On Tuesday night a meeting of the Young Men’s Democratic Club took place, and there being several speakers present from a dis'auce, Col. A. It ! Larnar and J M. Russell, Esq., were invited to address the Club. Col. La mar being unwell, excused himsslf and gave way to Mr. Russell who address ed the meeting in a handsome and logical speech, ornated with classical references which ho aj propriately ap plied to the history of the times Hon. , L. L. Stanford, of Harris county, be ing loudlv called for, toon the stmd I ° ’ | and spoke at considerable length I showing up the duplicity and rascality iof the Radicals towards the negroes, i and to the whole county. His remarks ! were sarcastic and were greeted with 1 rounds of applause. Wednesday morning was ushered in by the loud b.ioming of the cannon. The sun rose in magnificent splendor, and the day promised to be one of beauty. At an early hour after break fast, the people of Troup, and tie stir rounding counties, began to come in by the scores and hundreds, and by nine o'clock the town was literally tliroug ed, rammed and jammed in all its sireets, with carriages and all sorts of vehicles filled with peop'e—men, wo men ani children An extra traiu from Newnan brought down hundreds of enthusiastic Democrats from Cowe ta and Meriwether. A procession was formed at the dep t and marched to' the Court House yard, where they were welcomed, in appropriate and eloquent terms, by W. O Tuggle, Esq . and responded ti\ in onjjf qually appropiia.e manner by JL* F. Smith, Esq., of the Y'ouug Men’s Democratic Gluh of New nan. About 10 o’clock, the procession was formed under the direction of Col. W. U Jones, Chief Marshal <.f the Day, assisted by Alaj. H. \V." AI organ, ii S. McFarland, and B. F. Curiright on the part of the Young Men’s Deiia)- cra ic Club. Escorted by the Newnan brusfs band, the procession moved out to tno beautiful grove of Mr. A. S Harris, where a substantial stand was erected for the speakers. Dr. R- A. T Ridley, chairman of the Democratic Club of i’roup county, presided, with \V. 0. Tuggle, W. 11 Huntley and C. 11. C. Willingham as Secretaries Rev. H. C. Uornady was presented as Chaplain of the day, wh-.-n he delivered an appropriate prayer. Judge Jno. T. Clarke, one of the candidates for Elector for (he State at large was then introduced amid cheers and applause. He made an excellent speech. It was calm and collected, de liberate and argumentative. The Judge unde a sound, constitutional argu ment, displaying perfect familiarity with and great aptitude in presenting the vital issues of the day—rising, now aod then, to. an eloquence in discussion beautilul and grand Wo regret wc hate not his speech to pub.ish or notes to give the substance of his argument. Col. Carey W. Styles, of the Atlanta “Constitution,” was the next speaker. For an hour ar so he enchained his auditory wi.h eloquence, forcing from the people rounds ol applause as he portrayed, in strong and nervous lan guage, the enormities ol Radical ven ality. He addressed himsed, at some length, to the colored people, many id whom were present and listened to him with marked attention. After Col Styles, came Maj K- J. MoseS, tbe able anti gallant standard bearer of tbe Third District on the electoral ticket. Muj. Moses is a fin ished orator and an earnest debater and a true Democrat, and has already done manly serviee Jur Democracy in | this contest. We cannot pretend tcf give the sub ! stance of any ot the speeches We can ooly give a running ao bunt ol the 5 day's proceedings. Tbe firing of the i can non and the discours e of sweet inu i Sic interspersed tbe proceeding >f the | ! day; i At 1J tf’elock dinner was announced when the well-billed tables, groaning under the weight of good tilings, were first surrounded by the fair women of olit Troup. In justice to Mr. Hir&in ; Denms, li e chairman of the cooking ! and tab e committees and his assist j amts, wo must sayth"at tbe (floats Tterw the lies’ cooked and prepared wa have seen at any barbecue We would ! be glad to name each one -if tfio cojk- ing squud individually, but ms we huve not ttio names of all \vv only sj>eiik ol theifi collectively, Dinner whs scarcely dispatched bo f >re u considerable rniu #et in and $H4@ fuirffwl the people from the grove In the af ernoon a speech was made at the Court House by Hon. Hugh Buch anan. He made ul) excellent argu ment; buthefore he had finished, and : wliile rie w as din ding his remarks to j tint colored men present w ith good es feet, a squad "of fantasties rode up into I the i’ublio Square and interrupted tiin ' spOeeh, which was an unlortuna’e cir ' cutmslanee and not very appropriate to the hour. The fantasties would have been more effective as well as appro priate in the torchlight procession. Ac 8 o’clock, the torchlight proces sion, with numerous and ludicrous trails pareneies, vras foimed in front of the Sims House, headed by the Ncw nar, band, and largo transparencies upon wheels and drawn by four horses and inarched through the principal streets of the town. We are sorry we cannot give a description of these.— Every one was a decided hit, and altogether a brilliant display and a complete success. At 9 o’clock Col R. J. Cowart, of Atlanta, took the stand in the Court House and made one of his telling speeches, bringing down the house with great applause. He is a very popular speaker, aod his blows are felt w herevat he makes them. Col. C. was followed by L. L. Stanford, who made a short and pointed speech. Thus closed a great day for the De mocracy in Troup. It is variously es timated that there were from 3 000 to 5000 people present. Nothing trans pired to nar the pleasures of the occa sion. May the results prove as great as the occasion was brJliant and suc cessfull. iTlnrkets l»y Tolegrapli. Liverpool, Sept. 24, 10 A. 11.—Flat; subs 8000, 10(4. New Youk, 11 A. M.—Cotton drooping, 25 A.
