If the advocatees of the state credit

Planters in this section report that
some uneasinese hs been noticed pul
among certain negroes in certain lo. Ti
calities. We are informed that those me
colored men over whom Blunt has aid
hitherto exercised vast influence the
are the leaders in tLis attempt to joG
coerse the planter into allowing his In
interests and property used to suit 00o
the whims of the employed. These or
fellows have gone so far as to sy thu
they will work only as they choose of
sad have in a few instances refused the
to work at all.
The sentimeat of our people, so far 2
as we have cnversed with them, is ter
fnsed na opposition to )elding to the do
insane demands of these clamorous I
tramps. Thoy are the bes paid laIs
borers n America; their rights e tar
