negious to taka forcible poisse,sinimt o
the pi1., a device which they hav
successfully pr eticed here (in the
last three elections. Veiy Ott ly it
the motiniog they nia.ted it the citz
hall and naiecied down to the polls ai
the Court Holue in column und-r th(
cm11ialld of their capttin and lieu

founds a smaller crowd, principa lIl
wnites, and commened orowdin
upon them and foreing them from th(
polls. A few bouts of fisticnffs occur
red in the dense maoss, and then a dis
oharge of brickbats came from the ne
groes, followed by an order from
their leader, -Jeff Long, to fire upori
the whitos. In the cou'se of a fe
secorfds about Vity pistol shots we.4
dischargedf from both sides, by which
one white man was kailed and some
five or six negroes wounded, two of

'The attack came from negroes, aid
these gaeral facis ate substantiated
by numerous affidavits before the
vencraule Jodge Colo, of this eirc .it,
who was in the court house and hin.
self a witness from a window, that
the negroes cittimeneed the affray.
After the affray which lasted lint'l
few nomoem.s, the hulk of the negroet
left in hasto and disorder, swearing
that they would give up the electio.I
as they had been dra wn from the pulit
by violence and could (.-t no chance
to voto. They massed auain at tue
city hall, where they were addressed
by the Mayor, guaranteeeing themt
perfect prutection front a strong foret
of epeoial police, which had been
sworn in for the day, and free acces
to the polls. But with few excep
tions, they refused to vote, and man.1
have gone home. The whole of thi:
deplorable tiff..ir is simply the resuli
of another attempt by the negroes t
arry this preei.ot by storm, and
fl-rn purpose of the whites to pireveni
a repetition of the outrage. All it
quiet at this timte.

It is a great pity, and, in our judg.
e Iment, a great mistake that so large:L
,t portion (not the best) of the Republi.
sx can press should have betaken itself
8 for campaign purposes to the re open
e ing of the old wounds of the rebellion
era. It seems to be taken for granted
r by certain of that party that the only
,appropriate response to the Greeley
e proposal to "shake hands across the
t bloody chasm" is an indignant pro.
. testation that the Northern people do
y not want,ought not to want, any such
- reconciliation. This opens a promis.
r ing field for the assiduous enumera
s tion and vigorous denunciation of :ll
the sins of the South, past, present,
iand future, and is stirring up the
old eauldron of prejudice and passion,
which, on every principle of patrio.
tism or religion, ought by this time

anticipate with uneasiness the future
