The Millican Riot.
THE OBIOIN OF THE BATTLE-THE KILL?
ED AND WOUNDED-HOW IT ENDED.
A correspondent of the New Or?
leans Times, writing from Houston,
Texas, on the 18th ultimo, gives tho
following full roport of tho Millican
For the past three days, our city
has been laboring under ii great deni
of excitement, consequent upon a
difficulty which began on the 15th
ult., between the whites nud thc
blacks, at the town of Millican, Brazos
County, on the Central Railroad,
and which is not yet fully quieted.
I learn from a perfectly reliable
source that the difficulty had its
origin as follows: A negro man,
whose name I have not been able to
learn, went to the house of a young
man named Holliday, a short dis?
tance from Millican, to settle some
business matters. Finding Holliday
absent, the negro demanded a settle?
ment of his wife, who informed him
that she knew nothing about the
business, and consequently could
not do anything in the matter. This
seemed to enrage the negro, and he
began making threats and oursing
Mrs. Holliday, whioh so alarmed her
that she fled to a neighbor's and
informed the members of the family
of what had taken place, and request?
ed some men to go to her house and
make the negro leave. Two or three
men immediately went over and
arrested the negro and carried him
into Washington County, but a short
distance from there, and turned him
over to the civil authorities.
Somehow or other-perhaps under
instructions from the Loyal League
a report was circulated among the
negroes in the vicinity that Holliday
and his friends had hung the negro,
and in au incredibly short space of
time they congregated a force of
about sixty well armed negroes, and
marched through Millican in the
direction of Holliday'a house, breath?
ing threats of vengeance. Tho ne?
groes were assured that the negro
whose death they sought to avenge
was alive, aud iu charge of tho civil
authorities in the neighboring Coun?
ty of Washington, but they would
not listen to any one, and kept stead?
ily on in the direction of Holliday's.
A party of about twenty white mon,
under command of the deputy she?
riff of Brazos County, immediately
started after the negroes, with tho
intention of preventing any harm
being done to Holliday or his fami?
ly. A short distance from town,
this party met the negroes returning.
The negroes immediately formed a
line and fired upon the whites,
slightly wounding one. The whites
then returned the fire, killiug five
aud wounding several other?, und
tl. ? charged the negroes, completely
routing tho party.
There being no telegraph office ut
Bryan, the sherill* seized the froight
train, on its arrival from Houston,
and immediately despatched the
engines to Brynn, twenty miles dis?
tant, for assistance. Tho engines
returned with cars containing about
seventy-fivo men; but tho negroes
made peuce overtures to tho whites,
aud the train returned to Bryan with
^Anost of tho men that had como
^*lowu. During tba night tho whites
pluced a picket guard around Milli?
can, aud tho negroes assembled in
largo numbers at a short distance
from town, and two of thoir number,
well armed, attempted to enter tho
town about J. o'clock on tho morning
of the 16th, and, being discovered
by the pickets, were fired upon and
ono of them killed. After daylight
Mr. Wheat, a prominent Loyal
Leaguer, visited the negro camp, in
company with the Bureau agent, and
endeavored to reason with thom, but
tho negroes refused to liston to them,
and even weat so far as to threaten
their lives if they did not leave. The
negroes were commanded by a white
man who teaches a negro school in
the vicinity, and a negro man named
.Brooks, who declared their intention
to have revenge for tho killing of tho
The whites, under the command of
the Bureau agent and the sheriff,
continued to organizo and prepare
for the fight. The tiain was again
despatched to Brynn for assistance,
telegrams were sent thenco to Ben?
ham for troops, and to other towns
for assistance, and skirmishing, re?
sulting in the death of several ne?
groes, continued throughout the
entire day. A company of soldiers
arrived late in tho afternoon, (16th
instant,) and immediately sent out a
scouting party, which killed three
negroes. On yesterday, the negroes
becoming pretty well convinced that
they were getting the worst of "the
fight, scattered their forces, and no
body of them could be found. It is
reported, howevor, and generally be?
lieved, that a largo bod}- of them are
camped in the vicinity, at no very
great distance, and the prevailing
belief is that the affair is not yet nt
The citizens, generally, aro of tho
opinion that the negroes were insti?
gated to the course they have pur?
sued by bad white men, who wish to
give a color of truth to tho report of
the State Couvention on lawlessness
and crime, and also to aid Judge
Caldwell and Morgan Hamilton, who
have gone to Washington City to
endeavor to get authority to organ?
ize and arm a large body of negroes
as Stato militia, on the hypothesis
that the lifo of a Union mau is not
safe in Texas. And, according to
their doctrine, no mun can be a good
Union man unless he belongs to the
Loyal League. The carpet-baggers
and Loyal Leaguers have preached
and educated the negroes into the
belief that tho late war was fought
on purpose to free them, instead of
their emancipation being one of the
results of the war. The "truly loil"
will, no doubt, herald this unfortu?
nate affair as a wholesale murder by
the rebels; but no one, save one of
the white Leaguers, had the bravery
and manliness to stand by the negro
and share his fate.
Tho fact that all tho killing by the I
whites was done by citizens under1
command of the agent of the Freed?
men's Bureau and the Sheriff, ind
by United States soldiers,, under
command of their proper officers;
and the further fact that no man can
be appointed Bureau ugent or Sheriff
in this State, unless through a radi?
cal Governor and a radical Major
General, should at once convince all
fair-dealing persons that the whites
were not in the least to blame in this
whole affair. The negroes can lay
the whole blame upon the teachings
of bad white men, who have come
among them as teachers, speakers,
?fcc., but when it came to powder and
lead, deserted them and left them to
their fate. The negro leader, Brooks,
is a preacher, and, like a great many
others, is paid out of Uncle Sam's
cash box, his salary being $600 a
yaar from the Government.
TERRIBLE ACCIDENT.-The Knox?
ville Press and Herald, of the 28th
ultimo, contains tho following ac?
count of a dreadful accident in East
Tennessee, by which the wife and
two children of a former resident of
Lynchburg met with sudden and
awful deaths. The 1Jerald says:
"On last Thursday night, Mrs.
Earns, wife of Colonel C. A. Earns,
living a quarter of a milo from Tal
ford's Station, on tho East Tennessee
and Virginia railroad, was sitting
up, waiting on a sick child. We
understand that several times during
tho night, when she aroso to give
tho child tho medicine, she had
poured oil on some embers in tho
fire-place, for tho purpose of making
n blaze and lighting up tho room.
Tho result was, that ut last tho oil in
tho can took firo as she was stooping
down over it with tho child in her
arms. Tho can exploded, and the
burning contents were thrown over
her and her child. With frantic
screams, Mrs. Earns rushed into
another roora, where her husband
had beou sleeping. He, aroused by
her cries, wrapped blankets and
quilts around her, endeavoring to
put out the llamas, burning himself
severely, but, nias, too late to save
the mother or child! The former
was terribly burned about the head
and upper part of tho body, and the
latter was burned from head to foot,
expiring shortly afterwards. Mrs.
Earns, while in the agonies of her
tortures, gavo birth to another child,
and, on Sunday morning, the mother
and both children were buried in tho
