The residence of Mr William Par

burned last Wednesday uight. His
household furniture was saved, but
the kitchen utensils were lost It was
undoubtedly the work of an incendia

window. Mr Parish deserve? and re

On Wednesday night of last week
.a young man named Lassiter was ac
cidentally killed at the residence of
Jake Tedford, several miles south of
this city. The families of the neigh
borhood, fearing an attack from the
negroes, had assembled at Mr Ted
ford's house that they might defend
themselves more surely. Early in the
night young Lassiter, who was lying
own on the front porch, attempted
to draw his gun to him by catching
hold of the muzzle, when the ham
mers were struck against something
and the .gun discharged, both loads
entering his right Bide and coming out
over his left shoulder, killing him in
rtantly. Fresh "apply cf sugar an! mols;

seemingly, friends. That night at
an early hour a party of men rode p
to the door of the grocery, called the
men out and shot them, killing Hoop

About 9 o'clock of the same night
Mr Sandy Futrall went over to the

A Large Meeting af White aad Color
ed Cltlcena Held there Lat Jlanday
eneral Good reeling Manifested
So Mare Trouble Anticipated.
Having been informed that a mass
meeting of both whites and blacks
would be held in Pickettville, we went
down last Monnay to this unfortunate
village. On our arrival, we found a
number of gentlemen present, quietly
discussing the situation. Everybody
seemed to think that the worst was over
and a general desire was expressed to
see the laws enforced. About nine
o'clock crowds began to assemble,
nearly half of the number being black.
At 11 a.m. about two hundred people
assembled at the academy, when Ilev.
Ii. H. Burns was elected chairman
and J. T. Warren secretary.
Mr Burns, on taking the chair, said
the object of the meeting was for both
races to consult together iu a friendly
manner alout our troubles and
pledge each to the other for the
maintainance of peace and quiet, look
ing to the protection of both races
under the law. Our wives and chil
dren had leen terribly frightened and
excited, and the colored people had
been uneasy and afraid to appear or
to w ork. He w as glad to "see the col
ored people present, and told them
thev could le here without fear of
anything. Some of them had staid
at home during the excitement and
attended to their work, and he com
plimented them for it. The citizens
of this town had protected them and
guarded the prisoners safely to jail,
were law-abiding, and would continue
to do their duty as good citizens.
The following letter from Capt. T.
M. Hutchinson, one of the best citi
zens of this or any other county, was
read and endorsed :
HrMr.OLirr, Aug. 29, 1874.
Messrs. B. F. Nortlicott, M. F.
Parker and J. B. Moore: Gentlemen
I acknowledge and highly appreci
ate your invitation as committeemen
to attend your pfbjxised meeting of
our friends and neighbors, regardless
of race or color. I regret that my
private duties arc such that it will be
inijKssible for me to le with you.
Feeling as I certainly do, a deep and
abiding interest in the prosperity of
our common country, I write you a
few suggestions, which, if you desire,
von mav r.ad before your meeting.
That this Is a serious affair upon our
hitherto pleasant and happy commu
nity, no man with a moment's thought
can fail to see. I regret seriously the
calamities that are ujhjii us as a peo
ple. That wrongs and blunders have
been committed by somebody is appa
rent ; but as these wrongs cannot be
recalled, let it be our highest aim to
take precautionary measures to pre
vent the recurrence of similar w rongs.
We have our laws ; our courts are
open. We have officers of our own
selection to enforce them. If I under
stand the object of your meeting, it
is to try to give guarantees to peacea
ble and law-abiding citizens, regard
less of race or color, evidence that
you will spare no pains in your power
to put down a mob Fpirit, let it be
found where it may ; that the white
men by any word, action or deed show
to the world their abhorrence of men
marauding over the country under
disguise, thereby precipitating good
citizens into trouble ; that the colored
men with equal energy for we are
au equally interested use tneir euoris
to prevent any of their race from
committing any lawless acts. It docs
seem to me that policy and self-interest,
if nothing else, should prompt
every man to this course. We can
not live together and prosper with a
spirit of hatred rankling in our bosoms,
o jtossible good can result from a
war of races. A reign of terror will
be its legitimate result. I do hope
that every w hite man and colored man
will pledge himself to frown down all
attempts at lawlessness. Let each, in
a spirit of harmony, extend the olive
branch of peace one to the other, that
man of all colors may feel safe at
home with their families.
Allow me again to revert to the
fact that I regard your efforts to res
tore peace and harmony in the com
munity as wise and laudable. My
humble conviction is that one week
of excitement such as wc have had is
enough to sicken the heart of any well
meaning man. None but bad men
gloat and fatten ujnm anarchy.
I am very respectfully yours etc.,
T. M. Hctchinsox.
CoL Sharpe, of Humboldt, taking
the stand, said he lntd know n these
people all hi life and needed no in
troduction. We were here to counsel
together and as-ure the country we
were law-abiding; to hurl lwulf the
foul slander of the press of the coun
try that we arc lawless and reckless.
Wrong gross and flagrant wrong
has been committed, aud we must dis
countenance it. The trouble did not
commence in Trenton Tuesday night;
that was the result of the work of
unprincipled men, who had been at
thiB scheming, dirty bur-iness for a
long time. We are here to condemn
not only kuklux but all other mob
outrages of whites and blacks alike.
But there is a higher law implanted
in the breast of every true man a
law not in the statute looks. If a
man's wife or daughter is seducedrand
the libertine is at large, he meets aud
shoots the scoundrel down on sight,
and, although the statute calls this a
felony, jou can't find a jury in the
land that will convict him. Suppose
outlaws agree to murder innocent
women and children, is there a law to
punish men for killing them outright ?
I don't advise that course. When he
is taken prisoner you have no right to
punish him you f jrfcit your right to
execute this higher law. Any set cf
men who band together and i&ka hjvk
or white firoa jail ard rsurder then
commit a crime. He told the negroes
that, eo long as they did their duty,
bo would suiUia and do all he could
for them. He trusted they were pre
sent to help the whites and indicate
their disapproval of the past, urging
them, for their own good and that of
the whites, to help to maintain order
in the land. The speaker aLso referred
in strong terms to the unjust and un
generous speeches recently delivered
in Memphis by President Davi, Gov.
Harris and Gen. Forrest, denouncing
the latter for proposing to march at
the head of an army against Gibson
county, ridiculing the idea of " the
father of the kuklux" fighting the
shadow of a dead ghost. He defend
ed the people for their law-abiding
course and said two thousand men
could be raised in this county to arrest
the kuklux if auylxnly knew w ho they
were. He said more murders were
committed in Memphis in oue winter
than all of these put together, and
yet nobody denounced the people of
Memphis as murderers. Ixt Mem
phis clear the lx'ani from her own eye
before plucking the moat from the eye
of her neighbor.
George Kelley, Esq., was not ac
customed to public speaking, but was
willing to do all he could for law and
order. The present troubles might
briug greater ones on us. False state
ments had gone forth which might
result in the punishment of innocent
persons. He would not harm a col
ored man. His great desire was to
live iu peace with all mankind. He
believed that all present were here in
good faith. If crime Is committed,
let the courts administer justice not
mobs. Advised all to forget the past
and keep up good feeling between the j
races. Told the negroes there were j
no w hite men present w ho would injure
them unnecessarily. If they did
wrong, they must be tried by the law
and punished, just the same as the
white man. He alluded to the fact
that short crops and the scarcity of j
provisions had caused the negroes to)
think they would lose their situations
and suffer, and said this had something
to do with the present troubles ; but
he told them that there were good
crops in other sections, that the people
of the United States were liberal and
would not let us starve. lie coun
selled the negroes to work hard and
behave them.-clves, and all would do
At this juncture the following gen
tlemen were appointed a committee on
resolutions: Dr J. P. James, J. T.
Warren, Jr, Capt. Stephen Hale, B.
F. Northcott and W. A. Wade.
During the absence of the commit
tee, the audience was addressed in an
earnest and effective manner by Ilev.
B. M. Burrow.
Scott Cocolo, colored, riiade a very
earnest and we hope representative
speech for his race. Ills voice was
for iM?ace, ami he wanted all white
and black to agree to do better.
Said we could not live in such confu
sion. He denounced all the recent
outrages iu an earnest manner, and
the negroes present endorsed him In
frequent applause. He didn't know
what started the trouble. Some said
the kuklux, but he didn't know any
thing about it. If the negroes did
wrong on that Saturday night, they
ought to be punished. Said his nice
depended on the whites for employ
ment, and if they didn't do right they
couldn't get i and ought not to have
it. He wanted peace now and here
after. The following is the rej)ort of the
committee, which was adopted unani
mously by a rising vote :
Whereas, this people have l)een for
more than one week confused and
harassed to an almost intolerable ex
tent by some private citizens having
been fired into by a band of armed
Whereas, an outrage was committed
at the Trenton jail on the 25th inst.
by taking out of prison and murdering
some negro prisoners by a band of
disguised men ; and
Whereas, the Memphis and Nash
ville press have done us great injustice
in charging us by implication with
law lessness nml disorder; therefore,
Iiesolved, that we denounce the
above-referrcd-to law less acts as crimes
of the worst character, and demand
the enforcement of the laws against
all offenders, white and black.
Iiesolved, further, that we, as a
people, independent of race and color,
will use every effort in our jowcr to
quell all lawlessness of every chnracter.

couuty papers and the Memphis Ap
