A Clear Statement of the Vicksburf
To the Editor of the New
Vicksburo, Miss., Dec. 9, 1874.
The difficulty here has been called
a riot, but that waa a misnomer.
It waa an attack in three separate
columns by nezroes upon the city.
The caus of this attack can be sta
ted in a few words. For six months
herifl eter ; (rosby (colured) has
been excising the f auctions ot the
office without paying given a legal
bond. The Board of County Su
pervisors refused to order him to
give the regular bond and the time
drew on to pay the countv taxes
some $200,000. The chancery cierk
waa without any bond whatever, and
under an indictment for embezzle
tnent aud forgery, as was his pre
decessor, Cardoso the present State
Superintendent of Education.
CHARGES AGAINST THE SHERIFF.
Notwithstanding hi indictments,
the sheriff was notoriously packing
janes, and three weeks ago the
county records, bearing evidence of
the guilt of the officials, were stolen
from the courtbouse. The Tax
payers' Association, composed of
the best citizens and property-bold
era, held a meeting last Wednesday,
and in a body went to the court
house and demanded the resignas
tion of the sheriff, the chancery
clerk, the treasurer, and the coro
ner. The sheriff only waa found,
and he resigned. The Sheriff then
went to Jackson to consult with
Governor Ames. On his return on
Saturday a card appetred on the
streets, anil w;ts circulat tl through
out the county, xigued by Crosby,
calling on ilepublicans, white and
black, to come to his aid and sus
tain his position. Crosby publicly
and through the papers denied the
card , yet on Sunday rumors came
that negroes were arming and oath
ering at different points to march
on the city, but little credence was
given to the report then.
On Monday morning at 5 o'clock
the alarm was given that the neijroetj

with a loss of six killed, several
wounded, and some prisoners taken.
Among the latter was Audrew
Owens, the negro commander.
FIGHTING ON THE OLD OR0UND.
A few minutes after this engage
ment a detachment of citizens, sent
out on the Jackson road on the
northeast side, encountered a large
body of negroes strongly entrench
ed in the old Federal breastworks
just west of the monument where
remberton surrendered. I he faght
here lasted an hour, and was the
most sanguinary fight of the day
The infantry in front engaged the
negroes, while the calvary charged
their flunks. The negroes fled in
wild disorder, and twentyhve killed
and wounded. Oliver Brown (white)
was also killed.
THE THIRD BATTLE.
About the same time three com
panies ol citizens met zou negroes
on Cherry street, south, anl with a

from their strong position on the
hill with light loss. The calvary

A Wed to Farmers' Girls.
It was intira ited in a former
article addressed to the boys, that
the girls might expect something
especially for tl:em.
It is generally expected that the
daughters of fanners will help their
mothers. Jf they do not, there are
at least two reasons which may be
given one is t!ia the mothers
prefer to do the work themselves,
and let the girls do nothing, and the
other, that the latter are unwilling
to go into the kitchen or dairy.
Mow, there is wrong in both if it is
true, as above stated. There is
nothing more conducive to health,
than the ordinary house-work upon
a farm. 1 say ordinary because
anything that involves heavy lift
ing should never be required of a
wotsitn. The art of making good
bread is a rare accomplishment, and
requires as much good sense aud
opplicaton hb the ability to play
the guitar or piano forte.
gain, after the fiousework is
done for the day, much can be done
by the p iris towards cultivating
flowers in -the , door-yard. In a
villago or city, the lots are often so
small that no room is afforded lor
flowers- , Oa the farm there is al
ways room enough, and no excuse
can be offered why they should not
be cultiui ed. There is not only
tne satisfact.on of seeing the beauti
ful mOumls and borders, butthe care
requisite in tmining them has a
tendency to cultivate to correct
taste in everything cUe. Jf the
front-yard looks nicely, the house
will be upt to present the same ap
pearance. Flowers outside will

the house. There is nothing which

Take Time to Best.
Most men and woraon must keep
in the traces, and keep pulling Uie
year round. All the more, there
fore, it is their duty to take thing;
easier as the hot weather comes on.
Take longer rest at noon. Put on
less steam when you are at work.
Snatch - a Sunday now and then

You can't ' You can. People find
time to be sick and to die. They
can just as easily find time to rest
aud keep well. All does not des

customers. Better that the chil
dren should wear old clothes than
that their mothers should be liid

corn crop tea little lighter than
that their whoiild bo no one to bars

earlier at night ; prepare plainer
meals in the kitctun. Take a noon
day nap yourself, and give your em
ployes a chance to go a fishing of an
afternoon now and then. That on-

A Discomfited Deal Head.
An editor, b-mg importuned fjr
theater tickets by a well known
dead-head at last give him the fol.
lowing letter to the business mana
ger of one of the principal theaters:
My Ueari nend I send to yoa
a lunatic who has tormented me for
two hours for tickets; but beware of
him, for he is very dangerous. His
family usually keep hi in in charge
of a faithful attendant, but to-day
he has managed to escape. I think
he is armed. Yours, etc. The
unsuspecting D. II. presented this
note at the theater, and was aston
ished to find the manager brandish
a chair, order him t be off, and
roar for the fireman to bring the
hose and give him a ducking. The
victim went down stairs .r steps
at a time, and has ever been
profoundly amazed at the reception
he met with.
