it will do n 'j harm. And I scarcely

to have the guilty parties detected and
brought to punishment, llus is a

The Jaswr Herald of the 27ih ult,
lies the f-llowing: We have
laci-ned the pr.rtieuhtio of an outrage
which was perjetrated a week or more
ago, which for fiendishness and brutal
ity, almost equals the doings of the
Pomemy lxy in Boston. A little
three-year-old ljy of Mr Jones Beene
wandered off from home and went to
the school house where his uncle, Mr
Loulie Beene, was teaching, near Battle-creek
mines. Mr Beene started
the child back home, a short distance,
tdoue, when he was intercepted by a
negro girl about twelve years old, w ho
lived near by, and who caught him
and beat him in a terrible manner
with a sharp rock. Mr Beene heard
the cries of the child, and went and
found him lying, on the ground in al
most tui i:isenib!c condition, and car
ried him heme. Sonu other negro
children, who witnessed the assault,
informed Mr Beene what the negro
girl had done, and the girl confessed
that she tried t t kill tlie child, r.nd
srave as a reason that she wanted to
kill a white child. The child's face
head and back were cut and bruised
in a terrible manner, and were cover
ed with gore. The negro girl was
whipped severely several times, but
she remained perfectly obstinate, and
remarked that she would take a hun
dred hushes any time to kill a white
child. The little child is improving.
