On laM Saturday afternoon, n colored
man named illiam t lojilun, called
out a company of negro militi.i of which
ho was tho commander, and marched
them through the streets of Meridian

t indulged iu too many copious draughts
of lirjuor, and towards the close of the
parade becamu stormy and publicly tie
' dared that with one hundred colored
men ho could uunihilato a thousand

allowed him to pursue his own course

which destroyed 875,000 worth of prop

begau to gather at the fire, they found
Clopton walking to nnd fro in front of
the burning buildings thanking God
that tho prorty of rebels was
being destroyed and praying that the
flames would consumo every buildiug
iu the city. When a citizen remon
strated with him, he" drew a pistol and
would have kirled 4 the citiien but for
interference of a friendly negro. lie
then marched, pistol in 'hand, backed
by Mooro and Tyler, around tho firo
aud through the crowd, cursing
rebels. Suddenly, Clopton was knocked
and disarmed, and left to
tho care of his colored friends.
Not injured, but infuriated, Clopton
withdrew from tliu nconu of the confla

Tho white citizens, ami tho friendly ne

work of stopping the lieadwuy of the

Tho postillion drovo fatcr. Uut the

It wa quite clear that a pack ot wolves

"When thoy come un with u do vnu sin
