Taken Aback. A handsome sleigh came
dashing up to a swell-front mansion one day
last winter in fine style, and, stopping, out
sprang a princely dressed little fellow, who
might have seen a dozen summers, but who
had the air of one who labors under the im
pression that his father is considerably his
junior in years and experience. Accosting a
passing boy, probably a 3'ear or so older
than himself, he exclaimed,
" Here, boy, hold my horse."
The boy stepped up, and, looking at the
animal, asked, '
' Can one boy hold him ?"
" "Well, hold him yourself, then," continu
ed he, passing on, leaving our hero quite ta
ken aback. .
- v.. THE MEMPHIS RIQT." -;
The following account of the late bloo.dy
collision of races in Memphis appears in the
Cincinnati Gazette: . , . ,
- Memphis, May 2d.
The riot was resumed this morning, and
continued with much fury until noon, with
consequences equally as disastrous as those
Before day light a crowd of some five hun
dred negroes attempted to gain admission
to the fort and secure the arms in the Arse
nal, but were defiantly met by the command
ing officer who threatened them with grape
shot if they did not instantly disperse, when
they immediately retired. General rioting
commenced about nine o'clock, beginning
by the declaration of a negro in a low grog
gery that every damned white man in.-the
city would be killed before the cessation of
hostilities, which declaration reaching the
ears of several white men, resulted in the vi
olent death of the negro. Then the war be
gan in earnest. Startling rumors reached
the business portion of the city, and citizens
arming themselves with all sorts of weapons,
rushed frantically in crowds to the scene of
the riot, breaking into gun and pistol stores
as they went, and appropriating all the arms
they could find. They were followed by the
Sheriff's force, the police force, firemen, and
a posse, organized and armed by the Mayor.
South street was again the battle ground.
Here the negroes had collected to the number
of at least 1.500, bearing aloft a black flag
as their standard, and hooting, yelling, and
firing in every direction. Most of them were
discharged soldiers, still wearing their uni
forms, and were armed with musket. The
citizens charged on them, pouring in a vol
ley of shot at the same time, which caused
the negroes to run, leaving some fifteen or
twenty of their brethen dead and wounded
on the ground. The return fire killed one
citizen and mortally wounded two others.
The advantage was pressed and the negroes
were driven helter-skelter beyond the city
limits, scattering in every direction. Various
rumors are afloat as to the number killed,
but it cannot be less than fifteen. I have
positive knowledge of eight. I could not
learn the names of the white men. Outside
the city limits the torch was applied to sev
eral negroes' dwellings, which are now a mass
of smoking ruins. The white troops finally
succeeded in stopping the riot, and all is now
quiet, with the exception of occasional firing
in the suburbs. Violence to peaceable ne
groes has ceased. But very few make their
appearance on the streets.
Most of the black rioters are skulking be
yond the city limits, and the white troops,
of whom there are only two companies, are
disarming them as rapidly as possible.
Some fear an outbreak to-night, but I
think the riot is at an end, as the negroes
have been badly worsted, and there is not
much disposition to molest them while they
conduct themselves properly, although the
firemen and police are much incensed over
the death of their comrades killed yesterday,
and are prevented with difficulty from
wreaking further vengeance on the blacks.
An old citizen, named Ben. Dennis, while
conversing with a negro barber in front of
the Bank saloon, on Center alley, to-day,
patted him on the back, and remarked,
within the hearing of some white men. that
" here was a negro as well disposed as a white
man,'" or words to that effect. A man step
ped up, and asking Mr. Dennis if he meant
what he said, shot him through the heart,
killing him instantly. In the confusion the
murderer escaped. A man named Keenan
was subsequently arrested on suspicion, but
no proof appearing against him he jfas re
leased, and the murderer is still at large.
The following paragraph appears in an
evening paper. It is regarded as containing
more of feverish imagination than truth:
ik As we are going to press, we have learn
ed, on good authority, the following start
ling facts : A gentleman, who resides in the
country some twenty-live miles from this
city, discovered, on night before last, that
several of his negro employees had deserted
him. Tracing them to this citv. he found
one of them this morning in a dying condi
tion from a wound he received in the fight
last night. The dying negro stated that the
trouble last night was planned; that he and
his companions came down to assist in it,
but it came on prematurely to-night, lie
said the plan was to attack the city and rob
all the jewel rv stores and banks. The negro
has since died."
The story is rather sensational and finds
little credence among dispassionate men. I
am satisfied that the riot was accidental, and
not at all preconcerted. It origiuated, as
stated in my dispatch of yesterday, in a tight
between a negro express driver and a white
hack man, whose vehicles collided on South
street. The city has been greatly excited all
day, and little or no business was transacted,
many of the stores being closed.
The Frecdmen's Bureau account of the af
fair, coming down to a later date, is thus
summed up in the Wasliington Star of Sat
" The Memphis Riot. The Commissioner
of Freedmen's Affairs has received a tele
graphic dispatch from Memphis, Tenn., dated
May 3d, which states that the ritt in that
city commenced in an affray between a party
of discharged soldiers and a squad of the
city police, in which both were at fault.
About thirty or more colored people have
been killed during the progress of the riot.
All the colored school-houses . and churches
were burned on Wednesday night. Fears
were entertained that the riot would be re
newed with greater violence, as armed men
were coming into the city from the sur
rounding country. Major General Stoneman
has required the complete restoration of or
der and quiet by the city authorities, and
announces that if they fail so to do he will
take charge of the city himself and disarm
the citizens. If more troops are needed Gen
eral Thomas will furnish them."
KritBtky The Democratic Convention.
Louisville, Ky., Tuesday, May 1.
A very large Convention of the Democracy
of this State assembled in the Court-house
Most of the Counties in the State were
Ex-Gr. 'Wiekline was chosen temporary
The resolutions adopted are as follows:
That wc dedans our warmest attachment
to the Unioa of the States under the Con
stitution. That tbp- Federal Government is one of
limited and restricted powers.
That the exercise of any power by the
Federal Govensnaent not delegated to it by
the Constitution, is n usurpation to deprive
the people of their liberties.
That Congress .has no right to deprive any
State of representation in Congress.
That the Federal Government has not the
right to abridge the freedom of speech, or of
the press, and that their suppression is the
destruction of every jurinciple of constitu
Tuat the Federal Gnrernment has no right
to try civilians by K&iLitary commissions and
That the question f suffrage belongs ex
clH'fcively to the States. -
That we recognize the abolition of slavery
as an accomplished fart, but earnestly assert
that Kentucky has the right to regulate the
political status -wf ithe .negroes within her
That the writ of lutbeas torpu should have
been fully restored as soon as the war was
That we earnestly reqaest the Government
to practice the most rrgid economy, and
prosecute those who Tiave been guilty of
fraud, corruption and embezzlement..
That large standing arnaies aire not to be
tolerated in times of peace.
That taxatieu shUld lie made equal and
uniform, and that the Government securities

That the thanks of the country are due to
President Johnson for bis vetoes of the Freed
men's Bureau and Civil Rights Bills. ..r, .
-- That our Senators and a majority of our
Representatives in Congress have acted sat
isfactorily to the people, - and - merit ' our
thanks. . "
The resolutions conclude as follows:
"VVe declare to the people of our own be
loved C-muion wealth as well as to the peo
ple of the whole Union, that we have met
not to foment discord but to heal dissen
sions, and to endeavor to the utmost of our
power to bring back our Government to its
ancient purity, and to try to make it such as
it was in the days of Washington, of Jeffer
son and of Jackson.
AVe wish to maintain and save both the
constitution and the Union as they came to
us from the hands of our patriot fathers ; to
preserve the rights and liberties of our citi
zens ; to maintain all the safeguards of the
Constitution intact and inviolate, and to res
cue the Government from the vandal grasp
of that radical Congress whose governing
principle of action is " rule or ruin."
The Democratic paity is not sectional, but
is coextensive with the Union itself. Its
mission is not to destroy, but to restore con
cord and fraternity, and to resist all en
croachments, from whatever quarter they may
come, upon the Constitution and the liber
erties of the people.
This is the great work we propose to ac
complish. To these noble and patriotic pur
poses we invite the co-operation of every
patriot throughout our country.

A NEW ENTERPRISE I

of next May,
"THE SUNDAY SCHOOL BANNER."
And in the commencement of this little work
of love, being boys, ourselves, may we not appeal
to every Sunday School boy, and girl in North
Carolina to come up promptly to aid the under
taking. In our own State, there are very many
Sabbath Schools, and from the best information
we have, tho scholarship is large and increasing,
and it is from them we look for that patronage
which is necessary to improve and keep floating,
this native staxdard which we propose for their
benctit. It is not for pecuniary gain that the
"Banner," is established; it has for its aim
higher objects, and if we succeed in our enter
prise, it will be to us in after life a source of great
satisfaction to know that, in our bovhood days,
wc gave a helping hand to Sunday Schools, the
preparatory Schools for places of high trust and
position, in the work of onr Heavenly Father.
Its name sufficiently indicates the object which
is to control its editorial conduct. There is ne
cessity however for the remark that it will not be
denominational, but alike open to all the Sabbath
Schools of this State for contributions, in which
there is no spice of sectarianism.
The "Banner " will be issued monthly on hand

fourteen columns reading matter, quarto length.
