The world is full of hero worship, and

saving life when periled by fire or flood
by every form ot daring bravery or noble
effort the list Is swelled. And a quick
and generous appreciation it awarded all
tuoh deeds ot exceptional heroism. Ail
heroic acts, however, la not come to tbe

New Orleans, Supt 2. The Picayune'st
Greenwood, Mist., special says: "There
bas been for the last month a negro by
the name ot Cromwell who bas bteu or
ganizing, as It Was thought alliances In
that part of the delta. Oa Wednesday of
last week a number of negroes belonging
to the alliance demanded that some one
Leslda Cromwell be placed nt tbe bead
ot the alliance movement aa they
claim he was an ex-convict and they
were afraid to trust him. ThU oc
curred at Shell Mound, ten miles above
here on the Tallahatchie river. A
majority ot tbe negroes' alliance voted
In favor otCioaiwell and retained falra In
his position. Tbe next day Cromwell re
ceived a tetter signed 'Unanimously,' Willi
cross bones, skeletons, etc., ordering him
to quit his work and leave the country,
giving him ten days. He showed tbe
letter to tbe negroes and the same evening
tho whites at Shell Mound received a
warning letter from parties (negroes) who
signed tbemsolves 'Three thousand armed
men,' wbc said that they proposed to
stand by Cromvrell and tbat if any efforts
were made to disturb him that they would r-
kill, burn and destroy Shell Mound. -
About ccrenty-flve armed negroes
came Into tovi and talked In a very
loud and threatening manner. The gen
eral belief Ir that Cromwell wrote tho first
letter himself and had It addresued and
mailed to him at Shell Mound, with tbo
object ot arraying tbe negroes against
tbe whites, so tbe effect would be to make
the negro alliance, that were' opposed to
him. come overand Join forces with tbo
other negroes ; I ut If ttch was his object it
failed, as they are still holding out against

asked for troops, which was responeded
to promptly by Governor Lowry In per

companies' to Sunny Side to report to tbe
sheriff, wbo went np there tbit

with the negroes. Tbe steamboat running
between here and Sharkey has Just

Lowry cautions tbe peopla to be

THE WEST V1ROI.MA TROUBLES.
Wheeling, W. Va.,Sept 2. There Is a
good deal ot anxiety over the threatened
race war In tbe New river volley, Fayette
County. Information from the scene of
the trouble ls meager, but ls ot such n
nature as to give rise to fears that a seri
ous breach ot the peace will occur. The
trouble seems tohave had Its origin Friday
evening, wben a negro went Intt the -store
ot Beary, Cooper & Co., at Echo, and.
brandishing a club, threatened tt 'Mo up"
the entire force of employes. All efforts
to pacify blm were futile and one of the
clerks, after receiving a bad blow from
tbe ctuh, drew a revolver and shot the
negro, killing him Instantly, Echo Is the
ceuter ot a considerable colored pop
ulation, and Saturday night Informa
tion was received at Charleston that u,
mob ot negroes bad collected on New river,
and that a concerted onslaught ou the
whites was In contemplation. Orders
were also received by the Charleston
hardware stores for all tbe Wlnob'ester
rifles avallabtr and a considerable ship
ment ot these arms was made. CIUxmis
ot Charleston were also gathering arms,
