The girls protested that they were contented with their wages and their places, but without effect. -Hayti Is likely to have another revolution, which will result from an unpleasantness in political affars.

NSli produces a large surplus, and foreign trade follows as a matter of course. An Indianapolis paper states that two I1eon were detained in that city several days who were' on theolir way to other points with money to redeem their homes from sheriff's sale.

There were three men, two women and several children belongina to the two families. The men had $1600 in money with which to buy land, and the murders were com mitted to secure this money by two men who knew them in Arkansas and who followed them. The little boy who es caped the general massacre made his way to Jacksboro and reposei the ter rible crime. A party was imflmnediately organized and started in search of the murderers, whom they came up with the next day. The villains would not sur render, and a fight resulted in which one of the murderers was killed and the other captured, who was taken back to Jacksboro and placed in jail.

The Editorial Press Association of Texas meeti at Forth Worth on Sep tember 3. 4ii, 0OUJlIERN NEWS. Louslanas. There are some caterpillars on the Armsetead plantation, opposite Cou shatta. The towns of Madison, Duckport and Milllken's Bend are going to have a grand joint ball next week. Caterpillars have appeared in Natchi toches, but there is nothing to fear from them, the Vindicator declares. Natchitoches parish boasts of a man who has been married thirteen times, and all of whose wives are dead. A camp meeting will be held at Union Camp Ground, Rateliff's mills, Red River parish, Friday, September 15. There was a considerable cave in the rlver bank at the lower end of Vidalla last week, causing John Brooks to move his house further inland. Louis Long, colored, of West Baton Rouge, outraged and attempted to kill a negro girl in that parish last Tuesday. I tie was caught and 1s now in jail in the East Baton louge parish jail. East Baton Rouse sent an unusual nnmber of early vegetables, such as potatoes and cabbage, North this sum met, one gentleman, Mr. J. C. Favrot, alone sending 1156 barrels of potatoes. These transactions proved paying. The cotton crop in Rapides is fine, but the caterpillars are over the whole parish, doing little or no harm thus far. Some planters are using Paris green, while others prefer waiting for the next crop of the worms, which they consider the destructive ones. The merchants of Alexandria and Pineville, and some of the planters of Rapides have prepared a petition to Joseph A. Alken, the President of the Red River Transportation Line, and have had it numerously signed,asking a reduction in the price of the freight on cotton, in high water, from $1 5o to $1 a bale. Young Harrison, son of Dr. Harrison of Natchitoohes, was bitten on the hand by a huge rattlesnake about ten days since. Mr. Harrison was hauling rails and the snake was in coil under the rail pile, when upon removing them he fastened his fangs so deeply that he had to be literally pulled off. Whisky and tobacco were freely used as antidotes, and, strange to say, Mr. Harrison did not suffer a day's inconvenience. As a remarkable freak of the mail service between Natchitoches and Alex andria, we will state a remarkable fact, which continues a remarkable nuisance to the great detriment of the public. A few months previous to the establish ment of a daily route from Shreveport to Natchitoches which is now in per feet running order, we used to receive regularly our Shreveport Daily Tinies Inside of forty.eight hours, and now we receive it regularly inside of six days. We have complained of this time and again, have sought an explanation of this remarkable mail freak, and for the life us we can get neither, and yet it continues, and all reported all right at Washington and no fines imposed and the contractors are happy at the end of each quarter. We begin to believe that Mr. Key, the Postmaster General of Mr. Hayes is no mail key at all and that he is a drone on the service.-[Alexandria Democrat. A man living in Natchitoches was con fined in jail there on Monday last as a violent maniac. For some time past he has exhibited an abberration of mind but nothing serious was thought of it until upon Saturday last, when two lit tie children, aged about twelve or fif teen years, took his dinner to the field where he was working. The little boy, who acted quite heroically, says they found the man lying down apparently asleep, he left the little girl near him with the dinner going hilnself to anoth er part of the field, when attracted by the screams of the little girl and going to her assistance he found her violently assailed by the man then in a violent convulsion seemingly, who was froth ing at the mouth, etc., and endeavoring to bite the child; the screaming of the two children brought the mother and a negro woman from the house, when the maniac was fought off by the two wo men and the little boy for over two hours, and not until the boy had, at the suggestion of his mother, stabbed him twice with his pocket knife, did they succeed in overpowering him. He is even now raving and snapping at every thing within his reach and exulbits all the symtoms of hydrophobia. The name of this unfortunate is George Sherring. Slsalaippl. The cotton factory at Natchez is being rapidly completed. The first case of sunstroke in Vicks burg this season occurred Monday evening. Joe Moore, colored, who was serving out a sentence on the chain gang, was paralyzed from the excessive heat, and while en route to the city hos pital for treatment died from the effects of the stroke. And now the enterprising German scientist, Mr. Maas, of Meridian, be sides inventing the process for making moss out of pine straw, has invented a mode of making gas out of resin, which is said to furnish a splendid light, equally as good as the illuminating gas generally used. In time the piny woods region will be illuminated by gas, in stead of the primitive pine knot. On last Sunday morning, in theneigh borhood of Meridian, three miles south of Egypt Station, on the Mobile and Ohio Railroad. John Lawson, a young man, committed suicide by hanging himself. He was found late Sunday evening by the roaring of flies about the decaying corpse, suspended twenty feet in the air from the limb of a tree. The cause of his self-destruction is unknown. He had about $1000 in cash on his per son. Texas. Stock are suffering for water out about Rockport. A grain elevator is one of the late im provements at Honey Grove. The range on the frontier is said to be better this summer than for years be fore. There are 138,000 head of cattle under the judicial authority of Clay county, valued at $1,000,000. At a recent session the grand jury of L on county found sixty-eight bills of indictment. That's business. The Cumberland Presbyterians com menced a camp meeting Thursday, near the mouth of the San Saba river. Major Jones, of the Frontier Bat talion, has sent ten men to prevent the threatened collision of a number of cat tle men in Brown county. A ste'-ich arising from a dry well on the ol:1 Land ranch, on the Martinez, fifteen iiles from San Antonio, led to an inve-sigation ,on Wednesday of the past week, and the headless body of a man, in a bad state of decomposition, was found therein. The stench was so great the discoverers did not make a further research, but they feel srtisflod that the well contains the bodies of other persons. A correspondent in the Delton Journal declares that some of the most promi nent physicians of that town are de feating the alms of local option by giv ing prescriptions for whisky, wine and beer to healthy men and confirmed drunkards; and adds a request that the ,Journal obtain from the druggists and publish the names of physicians so offending. TIHE NEWMDIOqT' MTUIKE. The publisher of an evening paper in Detroit, Mich., has been charging the newsboys one and a quarter cents for what they sell for two cents. Last Fri day they rose in insurrection. A mass meeting was held in an alley, and a yellow-haired lad named Carrot-top struck an attitude and summed up the case. "You see, fellers, we ain't got no fair show. A cent apiece is all we orter pay for them papers, and if we buck to gether that's all they kin glt. We ain't no Hothschilds." "You bet yer life " remarked the chairman. "I've sold newses for a straight year " said "Captain Jack," a melancholy youth with a stone-bruise, "and there ain't no money in 'em for me at a cent and a quarter. I for one am goin' to kick." "So am I," and "So am 1," was the chorus of approval which went up from a dozen throats: And kick they did. Nearly two hundred of them as sembled at 2 o'clock in front of the office and refused to buy a copy. Two editions were run off the presses, but there were no buyers. When the third edition came out, a few small boys sneaked Into the office by the back entrance, and made purchases at the old rates, but they were discovered by their colleagues outside, and compelled to suspend ope rations. At about 0 o'clock, a' lad wit five copies of the paper under his arm issued from the office under the protec tion of two policemen, and soon many of the strikers fell into line and bought their papers at the old rates, while Car rot-top and his faithful followers whis tled, and jeered, and howled.
