From what wo are told of tho ability or

in the field and our knowledge of the

Quite n little ejil-ode occurred In the
upper end of town ye.-terdny morning,
between two negro men and a wo lan,
nr.med William Green, Henry Jones and
Mr. Green. It seems that William is
the poesor ol a small house, In which
.lames has been living lor some time,
but has failed to pay his rent. Green ha.s
become tired ol waiting, and ordered
dames to "pick up hN bed nnd walk,"
which command thtf latter Individual re
lii'eil to obey, whereupon u light took
place. William wa being worsted in
the fray, and would In all probability
have been the recipient of an unhealthy
beating, had It not been that his wife
reached out and handed Mr. Jones one
square on the iiaal organ, that com
pletely bewildered the gentleman and
unfitted him for further action. He sul
niltted quietly to his defeat, and promised
to vacate the hon'c, whereupon the
whole matter subsided.

No little excitement was created ut the
L'lanters' Hoii'e on Wednesday night

Instead of abandoning the fray and al
lowing the unhappy man to find some
haven of rest, the woman, who seemed to
have her dander up, pursued hhn, laying
on her cow-hide at every step, until she
had fully vented her rage, when she re
tired with the remark, "I'll learn you
who you're lylug on." It seems the
drummer hud at some time sold the wo
man, w ho keeps a little stand ou the
levee, a bill of cigars, w hich he claimed
she had never paid hhn for, and the wo
man, upon hearing the story ns told by
the cigar man, became enraged, and de
termined to seek satisfaction through thu
use of a cow-hide.
