On last Saturday night at one o'clock tne residence of Mrs. M. L. Burnlev. a ujobi eiceueni ana accomplished widow lady of this place, with an interesting family of four daughters, ranging from thirteen years of age to the eldest daugh ter, ugeu aoout nineteen years, was en tered by three Btol wart negro men, and tne most hombleoutragea were committed. Mrs. Burnley aud ner eldest daughter, a most modest, renned and very intellectua young lady, who graduated with the highest honors of her, class, a year ago, were sleeping together, when her daugh ter, Miss Bertha, threw her arms around her mother's neck, frantic with fear, and cried out that some person was in the room. The room being dark, the moth er, at first impulse, thought her daughter oniy frightened in her dreams, and put ner nana out to quiet her. In a moment two negro men sprang forward and gripped the throats of the two ladies, and at the same time the dreadful voice of Anthony Grant, a well known desperate burglar, who sometimes lurks in this community, and who formerly lived here. but for a long time evading the officers for former crimes, spoke fourth, "do you kuow what this is?" at the same time putting the cheek and neck of Mrs Burnley with the cold heavy barrel of a pistol, and proceeded, "now, damn you, keep quiet, or I will send you to hell, where I have sent thousands of oth ers." At first Mrs. Burnley hoped that the rascals might be satisfied with the theft and robbery, and when they asked where her morey was, she at once told them where what she had iu the house could be found, which, when secured by the third negro, whose entire part of the plot seemed to be to do the robbing, called her a liar, and demanded to know where the remainder of her money was. Mrs. Burnley piteousley implored them that she and her innocent family had never done them any harm, and that they were welcome to everything they wanted in the house, and also the two horses she had at the stable, but to pleaje let her and her daughter, w ho still were in their clutches, alone. But the hard hearted wretches were unmoved from their hellish purpose. Aud then ensued a painful struggle of rapacious lust, and horror, and innocence, too horrible to re late. The mother with seli'-sacrificing devo tion, which mothers alone can exhibit in the grandest sublimit- under such perils, nothing daunted at the pistol at her tem ples in the hands of a villain, threw her self by a desperate struggle as a protection, across the form of her daughter. Vexed at the effective opposition made by such heroic efforts of Mrs. Burnley to save her child, the fiends with a sudden wrench of the arm, snatched the distracted mother with great violence from the bed to the floor, and choked her nearly seuseless, and then Mrs. Burnley finding herself free for a moment, and her daughter still in the violent clutches of Anthony Grant, she escaped through the window and raised the alarm, which caused all three of the uegroes to disappear in sudden haste. While Anthony Grant and Silas Johnson j were engaged in the attack of the ladies, ! Dick Cooper, the third negro, was entirely- engaged in searching for money and valu ables from the ground floor to the garret. They took off the small amount of money about the house, and a trunk ot valuables, the trunk being found rifled the next moraine about half a mile from the house. Mrs. Burnley's residence being on the edge of the town on the Meadville road, where the locality is thinlv settled, the nearest residence of any male person being 300 yards distant, and it was 15 or 20 minutes after the negroes had fled, before any of the neighbors reached the scene of action, and near daylight before a lully organized force went in pursuit. THE VILLAINS ARRESTED THROUGH THE VIGILANCE AND ENERGY OT COLORED MEN. Charles Caldwell (colored Senator) got on the track of one of the out-laws (Silas Johnson) at Clinton on the 18th. As sisted by him together with young Charles Caldwell, Eugene Welborn and Wm. Turner, (all colored,) Constable Ously, (white,) he was arrested and lodged in jail in this city. Here with this aid of Tazwell Jones (colored) the same party got on the track of Anthony Grant and Dick Cooper, and succeeded in capturing them. The Sheriff of Lin coln county, on being notified of the ar rests, carried the desperadoes to Brook haven Friday night. RETRIBUTION THE VILLAINS HUNG. Saturday evening at 4 o'clock, with perfect deliberation, the citizens after receiving the confessions of the despera does swung them by the neck until they were dead, dead, DEAD, as retribution for their crimes and as a warning that whatever else may happen, they intend to protect their houses from invasion and their loved ones from pollution. Gov. Baxter has come before the Con gressional Investigating Committee, and taken back in detail an me cuargo u he once made against Senator Clayton. The Democrats are represented as being much incensed by his duplicity, and tne dispatches say that they now speak of Baxter as "the biggest liar in America.' Chicago Tribune. Our Homes.

Pursuant to a call of the Chairman, Judge Warren Cowan, the Committee appointed by the Executive Committee of the Peoples' Party, assembled at the Chairman s law Office, yesterday even- ng at 5 o clock, the following gentlemen being present: Warren Cowan, Esq., Chairman: Gen.

Eggleston : liesolved, lhat the committee deem it nexpedient to correspond with individ uals, throughout the state, or to act at present with regard to organization, and they do not deem it advisable to under take to establish the principles or arrange the details for a practical operation of the contest. Adjourned sine die COMMENTS BY THE VICK9BURGER. The discussiou took a wide and liberal range, and resulted in the adoption of a resolution that it was inexpedient, just now, for the bailiwick ot V icksburg to issue an address to the people of the State of Mississippi concerning the election of 1875, and this uction was certainly proper and right. 1 he State election is off yon der in the future, fourteen or fifteen months and then it would be rather im modest in Vicksburg to undertake to dic tate the line of policy to be observed in every county of the State. Let us go to work in our own.county and redeem that first, the fall elections will roll around in other States before this work is finished at home, and then we can join the white sons of Mississippi in a united effort to ' redeem the State and carry the proposed constitutional amendment. Will the Vicksburger please inform us to what "Constitutional amendment" it refers ? The military and religious order of Knights lemplars was found in Jerusa lem early in the twelfth century, by the venerable Hugh de Pagauis and Geoffrey de St. Omar. Baldwin II, king of Je rusalem, gave them a habitation on the south side of the church aud convent of Solomon's temple, and the canons of the temple added sufficient land on which to erect offices. The first intent of the order was to procure the remission of sins by protecting the Holy Sepulchre, and keeping secure from robbers . the roads through which pilgrims passed to Jerusa lem. Nine years after the establishment of the order, it received a code of laws from the council of Troyes, and was in vested with a white habit by pope Hono rious. Afterwards, in the time of pope Eugenius, a red cross was sewed on the mantles as a further badge of distinction. The knights, who were at first but nine, rapidly increased in numbers and in wealth. Immense donations were made them in all the provinces of Christendom, and men of the highest rank were proud to bear their title. According to the original rule of the order, its members were bound to live in perpetual chastity and abstinence from luxury. After the capture of Jerusalem by the Saracens, the knights spread all over Europe and in every country were under the control of a governor, called the master of the Temple. As they increased in power and prosperity, they decreased in virtue, until at last their arrogance, extravagance and vice, rendered them universally ob noxious. The order was finally sup Dressed in 1312, by a decree of the Council of Vienna, and its property bestowed on the Knights of St. John. A Community of Women Only. The establishment of a woman's com munity within the limits of the town of J . . . 1 , . Woburn, abouttweivemuesirom xosi.ou, was begun on the 22d ult., by the formal raisincr of the frame of the first building.

The occupation of the residents in Aurora village will be varied, and indus trial schools are provided to fit persons for the different kinds of work to be done, including a domestic school for instruction in home duties. Each homestead is to be accompanied with a garden, and gar dening and frnit-raising will be a favorite occupation. Co-operative schemes are also planned. One of these, and that which has been pushed nearer to realiza tion than any other connected with the enterprise, is the establishment of a laun dry where full facilities are to be afforded for doing work on a large scale, and bring money into this thus far decidedly needed village by competing with the famous Troy laundries.

'Hurrah A ZVoticeable IVamily. From a late letter from Talbot county, Ga. to the Columbus Enquirer. A remarkable instance occurred at this church gathering seldom witnessed by many. Mr. S. B.

Mr. IS. had tour sons in the late war from the beginning till the close. They are enjoying their annual reun ion this week at the old family home stead. The Care of Consumption. A new remedy for consumption has been found or at least the doctors think so at this moment in the transfu sion of the blood of animals. In France transfusion has always been performed from man to man, but while it has been found easy for men to give up their blood for money, while enjoying the eclat of an experiment in a crowded am phitheatre, among the applause of hun dreds of students, good Samaritans are rare in private life. A medical man was unable to find any one ready to sell his life's blood to a young lady until he made a romantic appeal, and in the case of an aged man it was quite impossible. But Dr. O. Hesse, of St. Petersburg, says that human blood is not absolutely neces sary. He has performed the operation of transfusion thirty-one times. In six teen of his cases defibrinated blood was employed a practice generally con demned. In the remaining fifteen cases the blood of sheep was used. There was one death, in three other cases there was no perceptible improvement, in the re maining eleven cases there was a marked improvement throughout, and in some cases perfect cures. . Dr. Hesse hopes to prove that he can cure pulmonary phthisis in this way. Dr. Gedellices has tried the transfusion of sheep's blood in two cases. In one there was great improve ment, and in the other a complete cure. Attavln Conntr Famlaf. We learn that Mr. Daniel J.

HE SCATTERS FLOWERS ON LOST DAR LING'S GRAVES On Saturday afternoon last, after the week s and after that day s labors had been performed for his company, he went to his oeautuul home on Green street, and taking his wife and a little girl of a neighbor's, walked to the street-car, and taking it, they went to the cemetery, and spent an hour scattering flowers upon little mounds which held the ashes of lost household, priceless treasures. As the sun was going down they returned to the i track and went on board the first car that came along. When they reached the .1 n 1-v 1 point nearest home, corner ot .Broad and Marbury streets, Captain Butler rang the bell, when the car stopped, and his wife, himself and little girl rose up and walked to the rear ot the car. On the platform he encountered a mulatto by the name of Mike Murrell, and his brother, who was sitting on the steps on the side I he wanted to pass out. He requested them to stand aside and allow him to pass This they did, but when Mrs. Butler cameup. Mike pushed her dowu the steps, m, : . 1 . me captain, who was now standing 00 the ground, at once spoke to the negro in angry remonstrance, whereupon Alike Murrel drew a six-shooter, and taking deadly aim, SHOT HIM THROUGH THE HEAD. He quivered for a moment, clutched at his left leg as if he thought the wound was there, reeled and fell to the earth in wuvi convulsions. With a wild shriek his wife I j- 11 J J j ... i leu uF'a ?uu euueavoreu w gei one word uttered; but that lip was closed to her forever.

He held him as in the grip of a vice until two or three others came up and laid hold on him. lhe other negro, Gabriel Murrell, jumped off about the game time and started to run across Broad street. Policeman Finley gave chase, and, drawing his revolver, fired at him. The bail P881 the ,rificf of his clwed "P9. cutting away the skin above and below. With this the desperado wheeled, put his hand in his pocket as if to draw a weapon, but before he had time to take it out, his breast was covered by the cocked revolver of the policeman, and the injunction that if he drew his last minute had arrived. He surrendered, was taken back to the car, and both rap idly carried to jail and placed in one cell. the gathering storm. The news of the foul, unprovoked and utterly inexcusable murder flew from lip to lip, from man to man, from street to street, and a crv of vengeance was raised. By ten o clock the sidewalks on Broad street swarmed with armed men, who had determined that the murderer had seen the sun for the last time. At eleven o'clock the signal was given to move upon the jail, when the streets leading to it I ' . . . O were at once nnea. Arriving at tne prison the keys were demanded and sur rendered, the cell opened, and both the negroes were led forth. their trial. Taking them to the fair grounds, the crowd halted, when court was opened for testimony. Bohler, rinley and others solemnly stated, and with as much mi nuteness as if in the courtroom, what they had seen. After this was over, which required full two hours time, Mike was led to the front of a long line of men. The order was given by a little boy twelve years old: "One, two, three fire ! " A volley from the mouths of one hundred pistols was poured into him. His body was found there next morning and quietly buried, by no one knows whom. It was decided that as Gabriel had not fired the pistol, and at most was only accessory to the murder, he be taken back to jail and put in the hands of the law. This was agreed to, and he was remanded accord ingly, and the crowd dispersed. ON SUNDAY MORNING THE MILITIA CALLED OUT. Augusta awoke Sunday morning only to talk of the terrible scenes of the night before. Many who had participated at the fair grounds, and many who had not, freely expressed the opinion that both negroes ought to have been killed. Ap prehending another outbreak, Governor Smith was telegraphed to at Atlanta to order out the military to guard the jail and patrol the city that night. Where upon he dispatched awent, when the Richmond Hussars and one or two com panies of infantry turned out, placed a sentry guard at the jail and detachments along the streets. But the night passed off without the slightest disturbance of any kind whatever. . - THIS FUNERAL, THE PROCESSION AND THE -.

And this is but another milestone in the career of the Radical party to force negro equality and civil rights upon the South. These poor negroes had been taught the principles of that infernal bill that no man had a right to even ask them to give way to a lady on a street car, and that they had a perfect right to murder Captain Butler for doing so. The Color Line From the Central Star. The Holly Springs South, edited by Hon. J. W. C. Watson, one of the ablest awyers and politicians of the State, in its issue of the 30th ult., comes out in an article upon the inexpediency of forming party in this btate based on color. Among Mississippi's great men, there is not one that is truer to the South or his State than Hon. J. W. C Watson, aud his council is entitled to thoughtful consideration. The following is an extract from the article alluded to: "In the second place it is not judicious, because iu at least three of the Southern States the negroes are in a constantly increasing majority, and to organize parties on the basis of color is to remit those States to the indefinite control of the African race, and unfortunately one of these unhappy States is our own. Nor is it judicious even in States and counties where there is a white majority, because if successful there, it must reoil with frightful effect in less favored locali- ggg Jt" t "t V The common answer to our position is that the negroes are already banded to gether into a black man's party, and that it is therefore necessary that the white men should, in self-defense, form a simi lar organization. While it is true that the negroes, with inconsiderable excep tions, have attached themselves to one political party and obeys its behests and votes its ticket with the regularity, and with about the intelligence of a machine, it is not true that they have tormed a black man's party." On the contrary though, in these Southern States they practically furnish all the votes to their party, yet in a very large majority ot cases their favors and offices are bestowed upon white men. We admit that the solid unanimity with which the negroes vote the Republican ticket regardless ot the mental or moral qualifications of its candidates, is well catcolat-d to hurry white men into the opposite extreme, but we are quite sure that the remedy is not there to be found. It is enough to make the most sanguine patriot des pair of the Republic, when he sees the controlling element in the State casting its vote for strangers, imbeciles or thieves, for the sole reason that such characters represent the Republican party. W hat the remedy is lor this state ol attairs we confess ourselves at a loss to divine. Time alone must bring the remedy, aud if it i3 not brought speedily our State seems doomed to destruction. As grave as are the evils that afflict the body politic we feel assured that they will be aggravated rather than diminished by the organization of parties "on the color line." Women in 1 lie Urn The granges are making great headway in Virginia,. and it gives us pleasure to record the fact, for we deem it to be the forerunner of prosperity to the farmers of our state. We do not look upon this move as in any way opposed to the great interest of Virginia, but believe that to our farmers, who are intelligent men, it will prove a protection against monopoly and extortion, and at the same time be of great service in the interchange of ideas and practical experience, thus doing more in a year to advance the interests of agriculture than could otherwise be ac complished in ten. As a social club, the grange presents the very best possible form that can be found, for there is the hallowed influence of woman, and wherever woman is, her benign influence tends to elevnte and ad vance man's moral chaiacter; in other societies, where women are excluded, we may find pleasure, profit uud enjoy ment, but here we find elevation for our morals and manners, as well as protection for our prosperity and the advancement of husbands. We were doubtful at first of the propriety of admitting ladies to the granges, but after mature deliberation, have concluded that as many of our ladies are deeply interested in farming pursuits in fact, we can jwiiut to instan ces where ladies are excellent and most successful farmers; in many branches of the farm the hand of woman i- indis- pensible ; then if the grange is to benefit the farmer, why should woman be exclu ded ? is the natural question that arises ; if her husband, father, brother and friend is to be benefitted by going into the grange, why exclude her who is to le much interested in all that concerns iheir welfare ? Her quick wit can often solve problems that men cannot so easily see into ; hence her necessity in the grange, and above all, her moral influence, sanc tifies the grange, and makes it as sacred as the hearthstone or the altar Virginia Fireside. Rather Mot. A negro preacher in Virginia was lately trying to impress upon his hear ers a correct idea of the general uncomfortablenes of the lower regions. " Bruderin, " s .id he, "you's 'quaint ed wid Massa Carp- iter's furnace, ain't you?" A general chorus ol "You's right Ob course we is!" convinced him that they "were not anything else." "Well,' continued he, "you know dat de iron runs out ob dat same as water, doesn't you?" The "ayes" had it again, so he conclu ded with: "Now, Fs tell you bruderen, dat if a sinner was took out ob Hell and put in de middle of Maasa Carpenter's furnace, he's dun gwine to hab a chill and a sha kia' agy right off dat's sho' as you's born.

Other and more serious rumors still coming in led him to dispatch a mes senger to the hills for men, and in com pany with Deputy Sheriff Deering to try and raie a company of colored men from the north end ot the county, where the trouble had not spread, to aid in defend ing the town. Only twenty-three colored men re sponded to the call, who subsequently left before peace was restored. Vithfcuuday evening came Col. Andy Hudson, and Cupt rlynn, with two nun dred mounted and well armed men from this, Tate and Desoto counties, who im mediately threw out pickets and made ready to receive the advancing neirroes. hep the White passed up Suuday, uearly every lady and child in town and too many men boarded her and left for safe, and less warm habitations. Monday brought more troops from the hills, aud all around town were heard the files aud drums of the enemy. At 10 o'clock A. M., negro pickets were discovered two miles east of town, and a squad of twenty-five mounted men was sent out to capture them which they did. After the negro pickets had been marched into the lines they attempted to escape when oue of their n-iniber, Vess Lightner, was instantly killed ; and Al bert Hart, an inoffensive old darkey was accidentally shot in the arm mid in the groin, but not mortally. Monday at 4 i m. messengers were sent to Helena to telegraph for State or National aid, and to get food and ammu nition, both of which we were sadly in need of. At 5 P. M. , the negroes attacked the Court House in force, but were repulsed at the first fire by the white men. Iu the stampede the darkies threw away a great many of their guns, which were after wards picked up by our lys. In the above fight no white men were wounded, and only two negren, neither seriously. Tuesday morning the negroes were dis covered near O. Iv., and Captain Brown, who had just arrived with fifty mounted men, was ordered to advance and engage them. He found one company at Worm ley's lane, which fled to the swamps after bring at tne column. oing lurther down he found another company in C'aj tain Hall's cotton field, which he charged, capturing nine and wounding two negroes. Later in the day some companies of darkies were seen marching towards O. K. and concentrating there. Scouts were sent out, who brought back news that nine hundred armed negroes were there, and others still coining. For some reason never satisfactorily explained to us, the white men from the hills now refused longer to defend a town that was almost entirely deserted by its own inhabitants, and prepared'to leave. At this juncture Dr. 1E. Chapman propose. I to go to the negroes with a flag nf truce, and if pos sible get assurance of safety and protec tion. He found the enemy drawn up in line of battle two miles below town and offered the following terms, which were accepted : That the white troops should cvacu.ife the town. That the colored men should march into the town, throw out juards, and prevent pillage. That the lives of all officers and civil lians, with this property should lx de fended. That all differences should be held in abeyance until the return of Captain M. J. Manning. When informed that the above had been acceeded to, the white troops under Col. Hudson, quietly marched out ot town. At 5 i M. the negroes marched into town, slout two hundred and fifty strong, and after inarching through our principal stre ets, entered the jail captured the pris oners who had Is-en captured from them, and broke ranks. Alter this a number of them attempted to break into the store of Lowenhaupt and Kahu, but were pre vented by Louis Cheshier w ho went inside and gave them tobacco through the win- dow.

Scouts were sent in all directions for miles around, who finding no armed men proceeded, at 8 P. M. to O. K., where, under orders from Gen. Chalmers, they embarked for home, taking with them the thanks and good wishes of all. Thursday, 9 A. m., Col. Hudson re turned with 300 men, having been in formed that the negroes had violated their promises and were pillaging the town. Finding all quiet, they returned home again; and we are here alone, there are no armed men in the county, the citizens are returning to their homes, our wives and sisters are once more rendeting life worth a struggle. Capt. M. J. Manning arrived here at 8 P. M. yesterday. Ilia presence in our midst has restored perfect confidence among the people, who have returned to their homes, and are preparing to engage once more in their business avocations. Capt. Manning will take prompt and vig orous steps to bring the instigators of the recent riot to justice, and we may expect hereafter, the usual peaceful state of af fairs to be restored again with which our County has been so long blessed.
