The pistols taken from their bodies show that they had not fired a shot when killed* They were two of Fansse Point’s most respected and beloved cititxens. Their friends pres ent, consisting of six or eight men, were so infuriated that they went into the battle regardless of every thing and fought brave ly. A grest many negroea stood and fought until they emptied their pistols. A majority, however, stampeded. Hundreds of them jumped into the bayou and some, being wounded, did not get out Others ran and ^pme fell down on the wav and died. One negro waa found near by m his cabin, dead, without a bruise on him. It is still unknown how msny were killed, bnt it is certain that sixteen and probably twenty lives were lost. Nearly all cf those killed received their wounds from stray shots. It is reported that tbe white Re publicans present were armed with breast plates, secured for the occasion. Judge FonUlieu’s clothing was full of ballet holes, but his skin was untouched. Capt. Bell was buried to-day at St. Martinsville, Central American republics, tuu head* of departments and of foreign representa tives. The action of the board of manage ment in deferring the opening until Presi dent Arthur can inaugurate the exposition is warmly approved. His warm support of the exposition it app'eciated all over the South, and the management declare that it would be a source of intense disap pointment to the people of the South if it opened without him. The delay will en v ble delinquents to get into position and avoid much of the confusion incident to the opening of the exposition.

No fur ther trouble is expected. Nxw Orleakh, November 3.—A special to tbePicnjntne from New Iberia says: About 2CO Republicans, principally ne groes. entered Lareauville a little after 1 o'clock Saturday afternoon, cheering in tbe wildest manner and using profane and obscene language in the greatest profusion Tbe crowd was headed by ex-Sheriff Vitaor, and they abused the Democratic candidate in the vilest terms. Tbe most reliable and impartial witnesses agree that a lew of the citizens of Lareauville, not over fifteen in number, headed by Joe Gilfoux, met this crowd of Kelloggites and remonstrated with them, when some unknown party fired on Gilfoux. The assault was unex pected on the part of tbe Democrats, and before they could really Gilfaux and Capt. Bell had fallen. The latter’s revolver was taken from bis body. It bod not begn dis charged. As soon as the shooting com menced there was the greatest confusion mid the negroes scattered in every direc tion. It is very probable that many of the balls of the Kellopgites found victims in their own ranks. When tbenegroes stam peded they left their wounded to care for themselves. The firing was quite general and many were wounded and some killed who were not aimed at. Eight horses were killed at the scene of tbe fight and one was found dead a mite away. Borne of the wounded negroes started to run, deserting their horses, and ran until they fail from exhaustion. It is reported that some of them ran into tho bayou, where they were drowned. Other reached the opposite shore and con tinued their tllght. The panic among the negroes was terrible. They had been told so many wild stories about tbe Demo crats, that they verily believed the day of doom had come. The finding of negroes at some distance from the battlefield caused a rumor that tbe negroes had been followed and shot down wherever found, it Is positive!? listed by w.® 'pants that this Is (else. No l " oti were fired off the field nor were any ol the negroes punned by anyone. Several parties bad balls extract ed here, but they say their wounds were received in the engsgement. It is stated that one man died five miles below here from wounds received in the fight. The Democrats surrounded the Republican leaders and took them prisoners. Coroner If avllle went to Lareauville to view the re mains of Gilfoux and Beil, but took no testimony. He will complete his task to day. He says that as far as he can fearn there m«st have been fourteen or sixteen negroes killed. Many were wounded. The Radicals had been waving the bloody shirt here for a long time, and at Dongola, leaving a reserve corps oi «>,ow at Wady Haifa. The Mudlr of Dongola has promised to furnish a contingent of 3,000 men, to be armed with Remington ritlei. The Canadian boatmen have sue ceeded in getting 120boats over the second cataract—at Wady Haifa. The third cat aract is at Hannek. about forty miles be low New Doncoia ; tbe fourth Is on that part of the Nile which runs southwest, nearly half way between Abu Hamed and Debbeb; the fifth is thirty-five miles north of Berber, and tbe sixth cat aract is near a village called El Hajar, about fifty miles north of Khartoum. Tbfc smaller cataracts are aU between Wady Haifa and Dongola. They are as follows: Bamneb, Wady Attireh. Ambikol, Tangoor,_Uckina, Akasbeh and Ambikol, Tangoor, Uckina, AKasnen ana Dahl, or Ambikol. The 8anineh and Wady Attireh cataracts are not difficult, but the Ambikol cataract, which extends four or five miles, is impassable at low Nile and a severe trial at high Nile. A short distance farther the cataract of Tangoor also bars the way and is as diffleu’t of passage as that of Ambikol. From Tangoor to Don gola, and for some distance beyond, there are lew cataracts offering serious impedi ments. From Hannek, the third cataract to the fourth cataract the river is navigable by sailing boats, a dis tance of 224 miles; thence to Abu Hamed, for 140 miles, ft is only pais [TELEGRAPHED TO TH* ASSOCIATSD PBESS.l Paris, November 2.—A dispatch from Cairo to the Morning Scut says: The Mahdi in the beginning of September, hearing of tho advance of the British forces, made a supreme effort to reduce Khartoum, which place at the end of Sep tember was surrounded by 150,000 rebels. Supplies failing, the garrison be gan to waver. A deputation of officers complained bitterly General Gordan that they hid been de ceived by the promise of British assistance, and they accused him of aiding in the de ception. Tbe deputation also demanded that a retreat be made to Dongola. and threatened if this action were not taken they would join the Mahdi. Gen. Gor don thereupon consented to the plan pro posed. Meanwhile n panic arose and 8,000 soldiers and civilians deseited in a body. Two thousand men remained faithful and embarked with Gen. Gordon. The rebels were advised of wbat bad occurred and harassed the retreat to Bhendy, where maves of rebels provided with artillery disabled tbe flotilla. Unly Colonel Stewart's vessel succeeded in pausing Berber, and shortly at ter ward it was wrecked. The reminder of the flotilla was obliged to return southward, and on reaching Sberay the entire force was ca - taxed, about the 5th of October. General Gordon was suit under a strong escort to the Mahdi’* camp, where he is uow a close prisoner. TH* REPORT DISCREDITED. London, Nov. 2.—The foreign office dis credits the dispatch to the Paris Morning New* announcing the capture of General Gordon. A dispatch to tbe Daily News from D» >beh says the powerful Takam tribes, v uich are inimical to tbe Mahdi. have raptured El Obeid. It is said the Mahdi’-. prestige is waning among the tribes between Dehbeh and El Obeid. Tbe Time* considers the news reported from Cairo to the Paris Morning New* to the effect that Khartoum has fallen into the bands of tbe rebels, and that General Gordon baa been taken prisoner, extreme ly doubtful. This view, it thinks is espec ially reasonable in tbe ataenee of aovi#?s or tbe subject from.Gen. Wolseley.

Earl Granvdle, secreta ry of state for foreign affairs, assured the Press Association to-day 'hat the gov ernment had received no confirmation of the news. Up to noon to-day nothing had been received at the government offices iu regard thereto. A dispatch to-day from Dongola to Reu ter’s Telegram Company makes no mention of the reported fall of Khartoum: Itssys, however, that the Mahdi at last accounts waa collecting his forces around Khar toum, and had summoned General Gordon to surrender. The troops of tbe Mahdi bad intsicepted two messengers dispatched by the British to Khartoum The same dispatch declares tbit at last accounts a large force of the rebels was at Berber, and that the rebels have posses sion of the wells on tbe caravan route be tween Debbeh and Khartoum.

Picture, of Humanity und How Th.y Sell to the Public- New York Herald. Clearly tbe moat-Interesting develop ment in life is tbe human features. Hence daguerreotypes and photographs. Twen ty-live years ago, when carte, it vi'.ife were all the rage, every man, woman and child, no matter how humble their means, owned an album, in which tiny pictures were preserved. At that time tbe three chief picture takers of this country were Brady, Fredericks and Qurney. Mr. Brady, as the flies of the Herald abund antly disclose, began a collection of local, national and universal celebrities, which, shortly after the breaking out of tbe civil war, he removed to Washington, whence, as a base of operations, he cent with every great army corps bia representatives to preserve in pictorial form records of tbe great battles of the day, with portraits of tho men who participated In them. That vast collection is somewhere stored, but at present makes no figure in tbe public eye. Some years ago a new style of picture, called the Imperial, was introduced. At first it found but little favor, as there were no albums large enough to contain pic tures of that else. Other artists followed, and as art and science kept psce with capital new galleries were formed, until to-day the entire city is sprinkled with frames containing portraits, pictures of various kiuds, and of all sorts and sizes, done for miraculously small earns of money. Instantaneous photographs are a specialty with some, babies’ pictures oc cupy tbe time of others, groupings utilize tin- eye of this expert and fancy portrait ure eulists the talent of that.

In an Interview with a well known pho tographer y 'sterday, he said: “The first popular demand, in my .experience, oc curred along about the time when Beecher, Wendell Phillips, Garrhon and their friends were prominent In the public eye, but the eale of photographs to any extent, eo far aa my experience goes, did not begin nntll (bout 1RGG. Tbe first wo men for whose pictures there was any noted demand were Fanny Davenport, Clara Morris and AdelaideNeilson. very few pictures were sold of Rlstori, but thousands were sold of Miss Davenport and other thousands of Miss Monts, al though the greatest favorite of early times was Adelaide Neilson.

If It falls to be s really Imposing etructure, It will not bo for want of variety in the large amount of elaborate detail covering a great part of the exterior. I do not at this moment recall an American building ot large elze so laboriously ornamonted In sucu variety or etylo. It wonld almost appear aa if the architect had tried here to tell “all he knew.” As to the fitness and propriety of much of the work, there tuny be great doubts; especially In view of the faci that tbe interior exhibits construction that may almost be called flimsy. Mon ,-v e .ough might easily have been saved in Ihu exterior wort to liaye made much more substantial if not fireproof construc tion in the interior. But. doubtless, tho architect worked under instructions, and was at fin same time probably hampered by limitations, making It Impossible to do much otherwise than he has done. Anil it requires a good deal oi courage as well as fidelity to the interests of hit employer to prevent an architect from “making a splurge" when he has the chance, audit will always be so whilst tbe public eye i* so easily caught and so much taken with profuse surface ornamentation, skillfully worked out iu accordance with tbe pm- vailing fashion. In this building there is abundant evi dence of good taste and skill in adaptation, though auy one who chooses to look over the architectural publications of the dsy will find every part and portion of the de tail repeatedly illustrated in the work cf what may be ca led the fashionable archi tect. There is not the slighest originality in the detail or tbe grouping or the mass, and the work is open to criticism In the manner of using iron and stone. Almost the entire frontage is supported or. irot columns, with fatal Injury to the unity of effect by cutting off the lower and sup porting story from the immense mass ot brick and atone above, the iron appearing altogether disproportionate ana fragile for the duty imposed upon it Masses of rough stone work such as used here would look well supporting Iron columns, but to make the iron columns support the rough blocks of stone Is almost as bad as making a man carry bia horse instead of riding on it. I think it also a mistake to construct tbe balcony over the front entrance, with yched opening* through which people are •apposed to look, of rough stone like that used in other portions of the building; in eucb a position the etoae ebould at feast have been dressed smooth. But I have no doubt the popular verdict on the building will be favorable by a large majority, and tho enthusiastic Atlanta man will pro nounce it magnificent. There may this be said about it, that it is an improvement on the best work that has heretofore been done in Atlanta, though this is not saying much, Atlanta architecture not being at all of a high class. Such buildings as the new Kimball House will serve a* a much needed educating impulse, and the result will be beneficUIjnst so far as the public is able to "refuse the evil end choose the good.” p. iiorsfbria sr^SELF-RAISING (iyBread rrepamUoti, THE HEALTHFUL AND NUTRITIOUS BAKING POWDER restores to the flour the etrengtb-gi,i„. • phosphates that are removed wiS .S* Xi'“" «“SS HOME TESTIMONY FROM J.
