timely arrival nnd efforts of friends,
who beheld tho fire from a distanco, it
was subdued, without much trouble.
Mr. J. H. Stewart, who rendered val

to see the extent or tho fire, was struck
in tho face by a few drops of molten

Eugene, a six year old son of our fol
low citizen, Joseph B. Rusaoll. was
kickod on last Monday, by a horse
hitched to the horso rack, and knocked
senseless. He was nt once attended to,
and signs of returning life so-n ap
peared. He was carried home, and.
wo are glad to state, recovered during
the orenlng, without serious damage.
The horse was a larco and stronir one.
and probably gave the boy only a slight
uiow,or snovo with his log. A full blow
would easily have killed or crippled tho
We think tho county court should
shorten thn horse-rack one panel on
each side ol every pair of stops over the
court house fenco, so as to give a wider

1 am aware that there is a prejudice
against any man engaged In too nianu-

prejudice against a case oi this kind;
and there Is a very good reason' for It. I
believe to a certain degree with the
District Attorney in this case, who ha
said that every man wbo makes alcohol
Is demoralized, I believe, jrentlumon, to
a certain degree, It demoralizes those
that tell it. and thoso that drluk It. I
believe, from the time it Issues from the

moralizes everybody that touches it.

not bulicvo anybody can contemplate
tho subject without becoming preju

To tho pcoplo of tho United State.:
We, tbe colored people, are "but aT
slmplo folk, plain and unlettered but
nercrthclcss wo hope we shall be un
derstood. Wo desire plainly amt "
briefly to relato the actual political
condition of our race In Louisiana,
and to ask tho just peoples) of tho
North to render us that moral aid
nnd protection which our peca-
liar situation requires. The govern
ment clothed us with the various da
lles of American citizenship, among
which was the right to rote, which
fact has so incensed tho Southern
Democrats against us that they mur
der our peoplo and outrsgo tlTfclr fam
ilies after such beastly modes that wet
dare not relate them even iu our un
lettered manner. Wo are unable to
copewlh tho while man without
thnt backing and moral aid which the
Northern pcoplo havo so studiously
wlthcld from us since tho war. Ttio
most of us havo been slares and drlv
en like beasts alt our younger days,
and tho terror inspired by the whlta '
man and know nnd bclieva that wo
are not his equal in combat. Tho
iico-of tho lire nrms was denied us un
til nller the war, and wo fed our In
feriority lu their use when confront
ed with the licavily armed, swagger
ing Democrats, Thus when tho is-1,

tility.as it has been during this Pres.
Ideutial canvass iu Louisiana, our
numerical strength counts for naught
ugaltist tho. regularly organized,,,
armed, nud drilled White Lcaguu
Democracy nf tho State. Their mur
derers arc mora gentlemanly and hu
mane than the other outrages (soma
of which must bo nameless) which
tln-.y havo nud nre at this dsV Inflict
ing on our people. The whipping of
colored Republicans who know how
to read ami wrllo has been carried ti
such an excess that the recital of
these enormities would scarco bo bo

two have been whipped for rofuslng
to vote tho Democratic ticket nt this'
Presidential election. One of theso
stripped naked and whipped, Is. c iv
orcd with wells and gashes from hi
head lo his heels, and escaped froui
the fiendish tormentors through a
United Slates military escort. The
other was taken from his cabin on ,
tho night beloro tho Presidential
election, nt midnight, and whipped
by a' dozen or more white men, each
taking turns ns l hoy becaiue tired
some' lines three or four whipped, at a ,
time, until his finger balls and two
fingers were whipped off. Ho was
then left tainting nud alone upon Ilia
ground. Next morning tbe samo .
Democratic "bulldozers'! marched t
him lo the polls, Iho victim so stilX
and sore that every movement of the
body in endeavoring to drag its'slow
length uloug caused the most excruci
nl lug agony, mid they compelled hlra,
to put iu tho ballot-box a Dcuiocrafr
Ic Titdcu ticket, with the bleeding '
stumps of lingers their generous chiv
alry had left him. Theso' outrages
were not committed by Insignificant .
Democrats, but their leader Is a prac
ticing physician iu the parish, and his
assisting bulldozers nre sous or what '
they call iho first families. Thous
ands nf colored pooplo havo been sub
jected to these outrages at every clee- ,
lion for attempting to exercise the
right oT freemen In the State of Lou

ment nnd the pcoplo of the North had '
turned n deaf ear upon us nud forgot
