TUESDAY EVENING, JUNE 28.
A Louisiana Riot.?A riot occurred at
Oak Ridge, La., yesterday morning about
5 SO o'clock, in which one white man and
six negroes were killed and several white
men dangerously injured. The following
particulars of the affair are given : Sunday
evening a negro man, living in the vicinity
of Oak Ridge, indecently assaulted a white
girl. He was arrested about 7 p. m., and
when the deputies were taking him to the
calaboose, they were tired upon by Jerry
Baldwin, colored, his two sons, and three
other negroes, wounding Deputies Baker
and Gardner. The negroes then dispersed,
and later rendezvoused at a negro cabin two
miles from town. On learning their wherea?
bouts the officers went to arrest them. On
approaching the cabin they were fired upon,
aud one of their number, G. W. Higgm
botham. was instantly killed, and Consta?
bles John Conger, Gardner, and Baker dan?
gerously wounded. During the melee which
followed Jerry Baldwin and one of hi3 sons
and four other negroes were killed. A cou?
rier arrived from Oak Ridge reports
everything quiet. Twenty men from Bas
trop have arrived there. Town Marshal
John Conger, who received eleven bullet
wounds, died yesterday.
Madison's Grave.?Within three miles
of Madison Run, Orange county, on the
Montpelier farm, there is a small graveyard
about ten yards square and surrounded by a
low brick wall. In one corner of the en?
closure lie the remains of ex-President Mad?
ison, and the remainder of the ground is
occupied by the relatives of Mr. Madison and
his wife. The gate by which the inclosure
was once protected from the intrusion of
bogs and other stuck was (when the writer
last saw it; thrown down, and the entire
iuclosure ho grown up in hriars, weeds,
bushes and young trees us to make it im
praoticable for any one to enter and inspect
the monument over President Madison's
grave. It might be well lo call public
attention to this Badly neglected tomb
of the ex-l'resident. As the graveyard
18 about two hundred yards Iroru the
public road, and the right of way to it re?
tained, the interest on arinall sum of rnoney
placed in the bauds of the county court, the
Virginia Historical Society, or some other
permanent Organization, would bo amply
sufficient to make the cemetery all that it
should be.?Cor. Halt. Sun.
5s it Really Consumption ?
Many a case supposed to bo radical iuug
disease is really one of liver complaint and
indigestion, but, unless that, di.-eased liver
can be restored to healthy action, it will so
clog the lungs with corrupting matter as to
bring on their speedy decay, and then in?
deed we have consumption, which L9 scrof
ula of the lungs, in its \vornt form. Nothing
can bo more happily calculated to Dip this
danger in the bud than is Dr. l'ierce's
"Golden Medical Discovery,'' By druggist.
