Terrible Affair ia Maryland Colored
People Shot at a Camp Meetiagt '
Anxapolis Junction,. Angi. st 31. Lust
night u terrible riot occurred at the Methodist
Episcopal camp meeting in Shipley's -woods,
h few miles above here, and, there is much
excitement in this section in consequence.
The camp, up to last evening, was very or
derly, and all seemed to anticipate a success
ful close, but this occurrence has filled all
with sorrow. There are so many conflicting
reports in relation to the origin of the nffiiir,
and as to the number wounded, that it is
. next to impossible to give a correct state
ment. From the best nccounts it appears
that there was a tremendous crowd on the
ground last evening, whites and blacks, and
while the latter were having a meeting in the
rear of the stand, some young white men
threw watermelon rinds "into their midst,
which occasioned a row ; and some of the
blacks taking the matter in hand drove the
whites oiF, several shots being fired at the
time on each side. The excitement occasion
ed was intense, and in a short time numbers
of young .white men left the ground and
joined the others, who had just been driven
off. This crowd is said to have numbered
several hundred, and they a few minutes past
twelve, made a charge on the colored por
tion of the camp, when the blacks essayed
to make a stand, but were overwhelmed,
and the most of them started to the woods,
while others who could not get away were
attacked by clubs, stones, etc., some of them
being badly bruised. The tents of the col
ored people were set fire to and destroyed,
while the reports of pistols, and it is said,
in one or two instances, muskets, with the
cries of the parties, added to the excitement.
In a short time all was confusion, the differ
ent meetings about the ground being broken
up, ladies fainting, screaming, &c.
A young man named Bensom, who resides
near the camp ground, and who had just ex
perienced conversion, received a shot, the
ball passing through and out of his mouth,
lie is mortally wounded, and is now reported
to be dying. Besides those injured on the
ground, it is reported that numbers of the
blacks were overtaken in the woods and
beaten, and five of them killed. The mem
bership did everything in their power to put
down the riot, but were unsuccessful. Sev
eral of the shots fired entered the tents of
the whites. In consequence of this affair,
the usual closing exercises did not take place.
IXVESTIGATIOX OP THE AFFAIR.
Baltimore, August 31. An investigation
in regard to the camp meeting not is in pro
gress by local authorities, and the Freed
men's Bureau officers are also making in
quiries into the matter.
AYe have invariably contended that certain
politicians in this State are so warped by
party and sectional prejudice that they can
not see treason or treachery in any except
those who are guilty of infidelity to the Con
federacy, and the Raleigh Sentinel corrobor
ates our statements. That paper, in speak
ing of the approaching Convention to assem
ble at Independence Hall, in Philadelphia,
on the 3rd of September, calls it "the trai
tors' Convention." Traitors to what? Why,
to the Confederacy, of course. Then accor
ding to the Scutiicl. it is disgraceful to be a
traitor to the Confederacy, which according
to its present theory ,never was a government,
but an illegal, unauthorized mob, in rebellion
against the United States. "We say, "accord
ing to its own theory," for it endorses Ax
DY Jonxsox's theory, and certainly that is
his theory. The President says that the
states were never out of the L nion, but that
those who fought against the United States
government were traitors and guilty of trea
son this is the foundation stone of t he Pres
ident's reconstruction policy and vet the
Sentinel says he endorses the President's poli- j
cy, out and out. Then how does the -S-'"-'
net make it out that those men who stood j
firm to the United States Government j
throughout the lignt are traitors, and now
deserve the odium of the people '. How will
the Sentinel explain this? Does not that pa
per see that it is either a hypocrite or a slan
der i If these men who are to meet i a Phil
adelphia are traitors, then the President is a
traitor too. The Sjidiatl should be mu:v
cautious how it speaks, and constantly bear
in mind that it never can restore this coun
try to peace and quiet by the indulgence of
such vituperation. Setcbera Times.
"3Iean Whites" Again.
That elegant journal, the World, finds it
impossible to restrain the utterance of its eon
tempt for Southern Unionists. It contuins
the following this morninsr :
" 'las Mii.ix Winn: Convention. P:iil-ADlii.i-Ki.i.,
Aug. 19. Xulioual Hall, on Mar
ket street, below Thirteenth, has been engag
ed for the meeting of the -Mean 'White Con
vention on the :M of September. The build
ing is one of those in the city, and not fir
from a well organized police station. The
statement that Xational Hall has beeu en
gaged there is actually nothing else to say
about the 4 convention.' "
The Xational Intelligencer asserted that
this convention of Southern hn-alists was
held in Philadelphia " because there is no
2lace in any Southern State where such a
convention would be tolerated." Mr. Mont
gomery Blair declares the men who will com
pose it to be " recreants." The World calls
them mean whites."
All this need not, however, disturb Ham
ilton and the other brave men who were loy
al to the Union when Mr. Blair's " elevated
souls" were trying to cut the nation's throat.
The Southern loyalists have been called worse
names thau those now applied to them by Mr.
Blair and the World-. Jeff. Davis called "them
' treacherous scum ;" the Richmond Enquirer
called them "cowardly riff-ralf." Other
Southern papers spoke of them as "low born,"
" ignorant," &c. Sec. No doubt Winder and
others of Jeff. Davis's hi-ed cut throats,
when they were abusing, starving and hang
ing loyal Southern men in Castle Thunder
and other rebel prisons, called these faithful
Unionists harsher names than the World now
applies to them. New York Eeeiiiwj 1'ust.

Progress of the President and Party
through the State of New York.
RoCHCSTisn, N". Y., Sept. 1. The Presi
dent arrived to-day. A great multitude
greeted him with every demonstration of re
spect, as has been the case at Auburn, Utica ,
Canandaigua, Geneva and other points. The
trip from Albany to this place may be briefly
described as a succession of ovations.
Yesterday at Auburn, a little boy named
Richardson rushed towards the c irriage to
shake hands with Gen. Grant, under which
he fell and his leg w.is shattered. Last
night he sent, word to Sec. Seward that he
was anxious to see Gen. Grant. The latter
much affected by the circumstance, ia com
pany with Surgeon Gen. Barnes, called to
see the little sufferer and consoled him, tell
ing him in parting to write to him when he
recovered, and he would be of service to

At Clifton Springs, the sister of Stephen

The President and Gen. Grant went to the.
platform an 1 bowed to Mrs. Granger, the
mother of the deceased Senator, who was
sitting at the dour of her residence not far
from the track.
At Scheneetaday they were welcomed by
the mayor and council in an address. The
President was about to reply, when the
platform on which the party was standing
gave way and they were floored for a while.
Xo one was hurt, however, and the Presi-
dent spoke as if no interruption had occur-
e made short speeches also at Fonda,
Herkimer Utica and other places on the route.
On their arrival at Auburn, the party was
received by the mayor, when the President
again spoke. Then there was an excursion
to Willow Grove on Dwasco Lake, when an
elegant dinner was prepared. During the
banquet Gen. Grant proposed a toast to Seu
or Romers, the Mexican minister, and the
successor the causes he represents.
THE PHILADELPHIA CO.VFEVTIOJV.
Speeches by Durant of Louisiana, and
Brownlow of Tennessee.
Washington, Sept. 2nd. Durant of New
Orleans, and Gov. Brownlow spoke at mass
meeting in Philadelphia last night. The
former said Jbat Governor jWelles, under di
rections from, Washington, filled every office
with men who had given aid and comfort to
the rebellion eitherjin the field or in the cab
inet, and so well did hesucceed that in the
following year no one was elected to the
Legislature, who would not have considered
it an vmpardonable insult to have been call
ed a Union man. Immediately were seen the
direful consequences. Odious distinctions
were made in every direction; Emancipated
slaves were oppressed, and justice or right
towards the negro in most quarters could
not be obtained, or to the loyal white man.
This was one reason Avhy the loyal men tur
ned their thoughts to the reconvocation of
the Convention of 1864. He declared that
the President's interference in New Orleans
affairs had produced the terrible results of
July 30th, and he said that loyal men were
now fleeing to the North for protection and
free speech. He asked for the enfranchise
ment of the negro, without whose aid the
loval white men of Louisiana cannot recreate
a loyal government.
Hon. W. D. Kelleysaidhe wished toiutro
duce the valiant Governor Brownlow. In
the course of his few remarks, Gov. B. said
that the present Congress was the most pa
triotic body in the world except the present
Legislature of Tennessee. He further said
"if another war comes I want you to divide
your army into three portions. Let the first

TO THE COLORED PEOPLE
OF NORTH-CAROLINA I
THE STATE CONVENTION OF COLORED
men, held in this City last September, as a me
dium through which the colored citizens could
communicate their thoughts, purposes and de
sires, formed a State League, with its auxiliaries,
to look after the Interests ol the Colored People
of the State. The State Legislature has been
memorialized in behalf of the colored people,
and our petition was treated with rcspectlul con
sideration. Wc have, as far as practicable, es
tablished auxiliary Leagues to promote the cause
of Education, and to look after the suffering
poor. While we feel a deep 6cnse of gratitude to
those Benevolent Societies which have done so
much for the Freedman, still we are conscious of
the fact that we must learn to rely upon our
selves, and the world is looking to us for a dem
onstration of our capacity to perform the part of
useful, intelligent citizens.
The State League is the only recognized organ
ization we, as a colored people, have; audit
having performed its duties to the best of its
ability, it was enjoined on us to call another Con
vention, to be held in the City of Raleigh, on the
lirst Tuesday in October next, the second day c f
the month. Let each County be represented as
the Counties are represented in the State Legis
lature. In Counties where there are Leagues,

Let each County send Its best men as delegates.
This is no time to compliment friends at the ex
pense of the public good. Let the people be in
liuciiced only by the consideration of qualifica
tion, and let the delegates be nere promptly on
the day appointed, that we may counsel together
for the good of our people, and adopt such
measures as will best promote our interests.
It is earnestly desired that every county be
