Prof. Wilcox has now entered upon the
labors of the tenth year of his connection
as President, with the Homer Masonic
Female College. During that time the
range of studies has been as extensive as
any Institution of the kind, and the mode
of instruction has been to impart athorough
knowledge of those studies. The discipline
in the College and Boarding Department has
been firm, constant, but parental. The
health of the pupils has been invariably
good. In confirmation of the above, refor

the Institution and former pupils scattered
throughout North Louisiana.
Additions are being made to the Boarding

THE (ORAT PARISH TROUBLES.
Sheriff Nash's Statement Relative to the
The Radnot Outrage.
HADNOT, Grant parish,
15 miles from Colfax, April 27, 1873. 1
To the Editor of the Pioayune :
Peace still reigns around Colfax, the
negroes having gone quietly to work
and there beingno further apprehension
of difficulty. On Wednesday last,
however, an alarm was raised by the
1 negroes, which fully shows theirdesire
to have the white residents arrested and
dealt with by the soldiery.
In the morning about 1 o'clock,
just as the troops were preparing for
dinner, thirteen negroes on horseback
rushed into camp and inquiring for
M*ajor Smith, stated that an armed band
of white men had Just shot a colored
man, named Isaac Williams, while
plowing in his field. Upon this, the
Major immediately ordered ten men
to the rescue, and with a wagon to con
voy the wounded, a surgeon, and spades
to bury the dead, they proceeded to the
neighborhood of Bayou Daro, eight
miles distant, guided by the negroes,
who loudly demanded that the white
men should be arrested and shot with
Upon their arrival however at Isaac
Willianms's farm, that festive individual
was found peacefully plowing, while
three colored woman sat by. On inquir
ing as to the whereabouts of Isaac XVil
liams, the officer in command was told
that lie was the party, but Isaac knew
of no shooting, nor had he apprehen
sions of any. After a conversation,
however, with tie negro guides, he said
three men had gone beyond the Daro
hunting mules, and as they had not
yet returned, were probably killed.
Accordingly off the party again stated
and after going nearly four miles fur
ther, met with the three mule hunters,
who knew of no shooting nor even had
heard of any. At this the negro guides
slipped off with the mule hunters and
left the party without any sure way of
returning. In the meantime one of the
wagon mules had fallen through a
bridge, a soldier had nearly broken his
leg, and the officer had got poisoned
oak on his face.
There was some tall abuse of negroes, I
as may well be believed-the more so
as when the troops returned, late in the
evening, to camp, they had lost their e
dinner. In tote the Major said that 1
,"the cry of 'Wolfl Wolf!' was played 7
out, and the next time the nigger said
there were Ku-Klux in the woods, he (
might stay there and be d-d." t
Friday evening, the
sIERIFF, NASA ,
rode into camp, and, in company with
your correspondent, proceeded to the
headquarters of Major Smith, when he
was introduced, and a long and agreea
ble conversation ensued.
The Sheriff (Nash) is about twenty
seven or twenty-eight years of age,
slight built, active, and about five and
a half feet in height. His features are
delicate and very regular and handsome;
ris hair, eyes and beard are jet black,
the latter long and curly; his hands and I
feet are remarkably small, and his ex
pression is that of a child, yet in daring
and bravery it is said he cannot be ex
celled. After the murder of Mr. Had- J
not, lihe rode up alone to the door of the
court-house and broke it open with an
ax. I-ie is a man of character and has °
the respect of all hero, with many devo- I
In the conversation which ensued
Major Smith hoped that the Sheriff r
would exercise his influence to quiet t
the country, which he said had been '
already done, and he, In fact, promised
the Major that the principal gentlemen t
of the country should meet amnd ox- a
change courtesies with the officers, in e
token of their amity and friendship.
As to the origin and termination of
the Colfax affair, he submitted the fol
lowing statement relative to the dim
STATEMENT OP sTERIPP NAeSi,
Major J. H. Smith. eommanding 19th U. S.
"As the duly elected and legal Sheriff t
of this parish I would make this state
mnent, that you may judge for yourself, (
relative to the legality of the action a
taken. I received for Serif the largest a
number of votes, and as such was duly
commissioned both by Messrs. McEnery t
and Kellogg. Previous to my election i
there had been bodies of riotous persons I
in tile country, y;lho had no fear of the
law, and who made frequent threats of I
outlawing and incendiarism.
On the 26th of March last, these per- 1
sons, both white and colored, marched
in a body to the Court-IHouse and thence
ejected the legally elected and installed
parish officers, myself amongst the num
ber. I at that timo ordered them to
disperse, but they fired upon myself t
and others, compelling us to flee for our a n
lives. I aecordingly, seeing no other t
course, procured from Judge Regan,
the police magistrate, commrnissioned ifi
by Kellogg, a warrant for the arrest of t
the ringleaders, and with it, and ,tm
deputy constable, proceeded to Colfax, k
where I arrived in time to lears that i a
an esscrnblage of pea'ncable citizenls lhad
been broken up and fired upon by the
Even then 1 deslre~.l tor make a cornl- n
piromise, andi, before executing the b
warrant, rode up and endeavored to I
preserve peseea, but was agala fred -
upon, and threats made by the rioters,
who said they would anyhow drink
my blood. Seeing no course then left,
e I, at tho order of the Judge, summoned
a posse comitatua of citizens, both white
and colored, and with these (125 in
number) succeeded on Easter Sunday
in dispersing the 250 rioters and pre
serving the peace. The warrant for
their arrest, and the order, I still hold
in my possession. I deemed that it
was necessary to preserve peace at all
k hazards, and, therefore, I resorted to
the measures taken.
C. C. NASh, Sheriff."
o This statement was made in writing
6 and handed to the Major, who received
it, and we then shook hands and left.
Depend upon it, the white population
r here had to meet the issue made by the
k riotous negroes and give them a severe
check, or leave the country. Nothing
d else was left to do.
On the WVednesday night preceding
e the difficulty young Mrs. Janey and
e rs. John Hadnot, brides of only two
weeks' standing, in company with Mrs.
James IIadnot, seventy-three years of
s age, and sixteen small children, rang
e ing from six months to eight years of
t age, were compelled to pass the night
in the woods, while armed hands of
Snegroes ransacked their dwellings,
throwing everything they could not
carry away out of the doors.
e In the evening lante we arrived at
1i Mrs. James IIadnot's whose husband
e had been so ruthlessly mnurderied, and
where we now are. She was alone
with her daughter, a beautiful girl of 16
yd ears,lher husdand dead,her son driven
to the woods and her home desolate
the negroes even now threatening to
burn the house and murder them all.
She is a lady far advanced in years,
p looking feeble and nearly worn away
t with grief and pain, but she isa noble
woman. She does not desire revenge,
but only that she may have her chil
dren in peace.
It was truly a desolate thing to see,
and though she did not murmer, did
not complain,.the tears came into her
eyes as she pressed our hands.
f Indeed as her home is, there are
many here; these young men drive.n to
the woods by the negroes, the ladies
mostly confined to their beds from
sickness contracted by exposure, and
even as it is all they desire is peace.
STATE'MENT' OF U. 8. PORTMASTER aS. E.
1 am a National Republicand, and
always have been one. I was a menr
ber of the Republican Legislature from l
1 1868 to 1872, and was, and am now, a 1
I United States postmaster at Colfax, I
Grant parish, having supported Gen.
Grant and Gov. Kellogg in the last
campaign. Previous to this I was a
member of the Constitutional Conven
tion in 1868. t
I was quietly pursuing my vocation
as Postmaster at Golfax, and was told
repeatedly, from the 5th of April, by
the rioters that I should be killed, and
on the 10th of April was compelled to
leave, they stating that they would f
shoot me if I stayed, unless I took up e
arms with them. On the morning of (
the 10th I went up to receive the mail, I
and was nlet by an armed mob of ne
groes, who told inc to geot on my horse
and leave, else I would be killed.
' They also threatened the life of my
brother and a colored man rtnamwed ]uck
McKinny; also Ralph Marcus.
I then left, and canto to Alexandria
to receive instructions. I expected to t
sooee a deputy nnmarshal, to preserve
peace; but flinding none, I was told by r
Mr. Surls, the mail conductor, to bring
the mail here, which I did. I madeo a
requisition on D)aniel Shaw, supposed
to be acting Sheriff, as follows:
To D. W. Shaw, Sherlf of Btrant parish, La.:
Sir-I demand you in the name of
the State protection for the postmastor
at Colfax, La., and also to protect Cov- r
ernment property. t
Very respectfully, S. E. (T.vu, 0
United States postmaster. r
Mr. Shaw sent two men, but ai coloredi
manll nl named Leo Alln camnledown ,ani li
said Shaw had no authority to do no, a
and that loe was commlanding llicsr.
I then made a similar requisition on e
him as commanding offleer, in wrifing, R
the same as the .alove. lie replied the
Government property iiimust talke car(e
of itself, that lie wanted the men himi- r
self, and took thern away. This w\as
about tho 5th of April, and the Iithroe:ts
were made after thist. My object was T1
to protect the T;nited Statnl" (Govern
ment property, and I remain until niy

M, Mr. ADAMS ON LOUISIANA. I
The lion. Charles F'rancis Adams
to thus expresses his views on the ILoulsi- s
"n ana difficulty, to the reporter of the
- Now York Herald:
,r "What I consider the most serious,
d and as having the greatest offect for the
it future, Is the trouble in the South. This
11 fighting in Louisiana, in Grant parish,
,o is something to be viewed, not only i
with the deepest regret, hut with alarm
also. Of course, you will not under- E
stand me, as alluding to this more iso- t
lated encounter, but to the system of r
S things that has made such work possi- ]
ble if not necessary, and which seems c
n either unable or unwillingto exert itself t
eto evoke a better political anti social
system, and to establish it firmly. The j
whole policy has been wrong. I always a
rested my faith for the healthy restora- c
tion of the energies of the South upon r
d Mr. Seward's policy, and I still think
it was the best. The whole ground- 0
work of the present plan seems to have I
no other possible logical effect than to
create and foster sectional and heredi- t
f tary animosities. It has been a great (
mistake to elevate the negro to the full
f estate ofeitizensh ip so rapidly; it should
b, e done, by degre'es only, as the became
fitted to appreciate and enjoy the pro
rogatives with which he becomes in
t vested. It should have been the work
d of a generation or two, not of a year,
(1 and then he would have been qualified
by education and an apprecition of c
6 his self-dependence and responsibility
to maintain his citizenship. As he a
now stands in the Southern States, he
olhs not learned the proper use and v
n"meaning of his franchise, and exercises
it, not upon reflection, but virtual dic
tation. lie has beenl rewarded with a
the suffrage, so that a party or a clique
might reap the benefit of the instru
rment placed in him hands. Almost
everything that could be done has been
done, at the same time, to depress the C
best element in the South. If real, C,
r sound restoration is to come, it must be ti
in a measure wrought through the old ji
masters, the wealthy and educated peo- b
ple of the South. As things now exist P
one class holds all the lands, the other b
h1oldsnall the labor;each is impovealshed a
and embarrassed without the co-opera- u
tion of the other, and yet, instead of co- b
operating, we find them subject to a r
system of local rule which arrays them s1
at bitter variance. The South has a
i always yielded more than its best pro- A
portion of the best minds the country t1
I hasproduced, but itavails nothing now. A
I It is kept down in order to enable the ai
present political mastersto wield ignor- I
ance for their own aggrandisoment." n
"t ,)o you believe, Mr. Adams, that t(
the presence of a relative of the Presi- h
dent in office in Louisiana is calculated ti
to have a good effect among tho pei o
1 ple?" h
1 Dir. Adams laughed as ho replied, P
"r Well, my opinion is that a President ti
I should not put his relations into office to
anywhere. People naturally look upon
1 such appointments with a degree of
distrust, and I think an Executive who
f considers his own ilterests fully would d
refrain from doing it. The relatives of '
- any man in high position, are,uaturally n
enough, supposed to have somln inllt- t

o KELLOUG'S "DE FACTO" PRO6RES4n.
, eVo find the following article in the
to Tangipahoa Democrat of the 8rd Inst.:
is Atfiirs in Livingston parish, under
t, Kellogg, Davidson & Co., are beauti
Y fully mixed. Kellogg first appointed
n A. W. Kinchen Parish Judge, J. Gatlin
Sheriff, and A. Lobell Recorder, all
three of whom were beaten by large
If majorities at the election by Judge J.
SI. Calmes, Sheriff F. E. Hill and Re
5 corder G. D. WVells. Now he has gone
f back on Messrs. Kinchen and Lobell,
l and has appointed Simpson Kemp
o Judge and Joseph Cooper Recorder,
S and he offered Mr. George Cooper a
commnission as Sheriff, but that gentle
I man was too patriotic to receive the
k usurper's favor In defiance of the will
of the people, expressed at the ballot
e box. Last week Kellogg sent a Gatlin
0 gun and police militia force, and went
I- through the farce of installing Kemp,
t Gatlin and Joseph Cooper. His install
LI ing amounted to but little, as Judge
d Calmes held his court in presence of
0 the Metropolitans, and will continue to
- do so. A large force of citizens were
- on the war path to meet the hirelings,
k and a fight was prevented by reports of
Sa peaceable adjustment. These reports
i were falso, it seems, and the people are
If chagrined at the result. The police
Y have corne out from New Orleans twice,
e and returned unhurt. The third time
o they may not fare so well. Next week
we expect to hor of Kellogg and the
s Iir lieorse ftlxing up another list of
Sparish oficcrs and the week after of
t more installing.
A JUIIY OF LAWIVYEIIS.
SThis Imorning, in the Corporatlion
3 Court, the regular Jury being out on a
case In which they had not agreed, and
D the sergeant having much difficulty in
I procuring another, and manyattorneys
being in the court-room waiting, a pro
t position was made to try the next case
r by a jury of lawyers. This was at once
I accepted by the attorneys in the next
- case on the call. There were fout.d to
be just seven lawyers present not Inter
. rested in the case, which number con
t stitutes a lawful jury by agreement,
9 and they were accordingly sworn.
Among those gentlemen one has filled
the position ofjudge of the Courts of
Appeals. Another has frequently sot
I s special judge in cases referred to him.
They very cheerfully accepted their
novel position of jurors. The parties
to the suit are both colored. It was
hinted when the jury was called that
theor would oe seven separate verdicts.
Shut they did not even find one. After
hearing the evidence they found it inm
possible to agree, and the case was con
tinued. Theystood five for the plaintitl
3 to two for the other wnay.--Ale.randrit'i

A very considerate pickpocket il

York Tribune, requesting people to
write their names and atdressec s In

to come into possetion of pocket-books
containing photograph.s and private
Impore of lt) value, as advertlsomnots
frequently say, to any but the owner.
The pickpockets would be gladi to re
turnl those nmemnoranda, and are oftenc
grieved because of their Inability to
dto so. Thley are puzzled, too, to know
what to do with themn, and because it
is dangerotm to carry them about, or
retain themn in tholr rooms, trunks or
desks they troe colnstrained inuch against
their will, to destroy thuen,. This sug
