day, the school tax was reduced from

Some of the papers of this State
say the recent troubles in this county
was caused by a quarrel of one or two
whites with negroes at a barbecue
day or two previous to the insurree
tion. The facts are tLe-e: The ne
groes hail a barbecue aliout two
months since, Jo. Hale, Ilenrv Bur
nett, D. C. Palmer and Monroe Mer
rick, whites, wishing to procure some
barbecued meat, went and asked the
price er head. They were informer
that it was fifty cents. They then
asked the price of a whole carcass,
aud were told they could have it for
two dollars. Thev iKwirht it aud
went to one side" and ate what they
wanted, irivinff the remains to two
or three boys. Joshua Webb, the
negro leader, (also leader iu the re
cent outrage,) then demanded fiftv
cents more, saying that more than
four men ate. This the white men re
fused to pay, when the negroes collect
ed and threatened their lives if they
did n't. Under this threat they paid
and left. Webb, we understand, was
grumbling frequently about this after
ward, and it Is thought the negroes
made this a pretext for the I'ickett
ville outbreak. We hope some of the
papers that have been so industriously
publishing everything in favor of the
negroes engaged in this affair will copy
