Ed Shaw's Love Ftant and Hlicb Old Times Anions; lbs) Honrners Deastrcratlvn of Church by a I-o of Pslltlenl Wlri-Pnllers. Yesterday our reporter visited Zion BaDtist Church, on Beal street, where, as was announced, a mass meeting of Republicans would be held for the pur doss of electing delegates to the Chatta nooga Gubernatorial Convention of the 16th inst., and also to make a nomina tion for Congress in this (the Tenth) district, General W. J. Smith took the chair and read the call to about one hundred and fifty negroes and five white men. R. B. Hutchinson (white) and T. F. Cassell (nig.) were elected secretaries. A committee of five was appointed to nominate delegates to the Gubernatorial Convention. This committee was com posed of B. O. Carr, J. Thomas, Ben Payne, R. McKenua and Tom EldriJge. The committee retired, and returning presented the names of the cut and dried delegates, as follows: Delegates W. J. Smith, Robert Mc Kenna, B. O. Carr, J. A. Thompson, Ben Payne, John 8tevens, James Rals ton, Josiah Deloach, T. D. Eldridge, Ed Shaw, William Phillips, P. Ford, Burrell Lee, Barbour Lewis, Pat Winters, Julian Bedford, T. F. Cassell, George E. Page, Thos. Swan. Alternates R. F. Patterson, James Quinn, J. E. Bigelow, W. T. Kenneday, "R. H. Cowan, Samuel Woodson, R. B. Hutchinson, Charles Kortrecht, John Hughes, Fred Scbaper, Peyton P?ttit, J. W. Purnell, R. Tally, Richard Amry, William Cunningham, P.J. Mulvihill, R. W. Ramsey, T. M. Morgan, Bobert Butcher, J. Wideman. Right here we suggest that the Rads, in classifying Fred Schafer, City Tax Collector, and Charles Kortrecht, Esq., as of the party, may have made a mis take. It is not understood among the white friends of these gentlemen that they beloDg to the negroized Radical party, controlled as it is by the Federal office-holders' ring. While the committee was absent the negro Wharfmaster of the city, Shaw, harangued the mob on the outrages com mitted by the whites on the blacks, but he never referred to the outrages com mitted by the blacks on the whites, such as the Pigeon Roost road Duraut' vil lainy, for instance. He wanted Gov. Brown hung, and wished to exterminate all Southern men. Shaw abused the Led deb, because the Ledger has endeavored to rid the city government of a wharf master totally incompetent and unworthy of the office, a fanatic and black incen diary whose hatred to the white race (be cause be has a little white blood in his veins) breaks out on every occasion. During the ungrammatical talk made by this violent but ignorant negro, the con gregation gave utterance to many camp meeting ejaculations, "Bress Godl" "Dat's sol" "Oh, my God!" And then there was a smacking of lips just as if tbe darkies were calling hogs up to water. Shaw raved and foamed at the mouth, displaying bis ignorance on all subjects. He pretended that he had received a Ku-Klux letter ordering him to leave Memphis. This, of course, is a bogus letter gotten up for effect by Show who " wants to be a martyr and with the martyrs stand." Shaw has little influence with intelligent negroes, who despise him, knowing bim to be a corrupt ward politician. With the igno rant negroes he is not strong, all parties suspecting him of wire pulling. This convention aJjourned and the Congress ional convention was celled to order nnder the same officers. A committee on elaborate and cut and dried resolutions was appointed. These fi-llows went out, took the already written resolutions out of one pocket, put them in the other, and returned to the hall. The commit tee was composed of Ed Sbaw, Tom Eldridge, B. O. Carr, Wm. Phillips, Jo Clouston and J. M. Williamson. During their absence a sharp negro just arrived from the North addresed the audience and introduced several historical allusions about Greece and Rome. Sbaw, desiring to please the Ledger, nominated B. Lewis as a candidate (or the office of Congressman to represent the Tenth District. The nomination was made unanimous, no opposition be- inir ariDarent. It was evident that r ay- ette and Hardeman counties bad little to Ho with the nomination, the Shelby county mob of delegates and others who were cresent voting on all questions. When Lewis was nominated there was a stamping of feet, and many expressions of African satisfaction broke loose. Chairman General Smith made a speech indorsing B. Lewis as the man for the place, and then recounted a few outrages committed by white people on negroes, after which the meeting ad journed sine die. The absence of white men who figured so extensively in the Radical camp last August was lamentably apparent. The Irish Radicals kept away, but there are so few of them that tbey might have at tended and then not filled up one of the church benches, which holds on an aver ege half a dozen sinners. The platform is Radical in the extreme, and not worth printing. We never Baw a Radical convention wherein so little enthusiasm was manifested. The white leaders feel that they are lust, that their party has gone where the, woodbine twineth, that they have no white allies, and that the leading Irish and German Radicals have no voters behind them. So that the party is almost exclusively a negro party, having nothing in store for it but defeat in the future. The little Federal office holders' ring may as well give up the ghost and diebauj their army of poor deluded Africans who were robbed by the Freedmen's Savings Banks. THE CENTRAL P0I5T OUTRAGE. The Nraro Ontsnce at Dnrsnt's, on I he Plsrnon Koaat Koail Our Hr porler at toe Srsaa vt tho Out ra(a. Yesterday afternoon a Ledger com missioner visited the grocery and resi dence of Mr. R. Durant, on the Pigeon Rooat road, half a mile from the corpor ation line, for the purpose of investigat ing the robbery, burglary and outrages committed on Monday morning by an armed force of negroes. Mr. Durant has a brick Btore and dwelling. Tbe bed-rooms and kitohen are in rear of the store. The place bad been robbed and fired several times, anj Mr. Durant erected tbe present building with a view to making it fire and burglar proof. Mr, Dufant has been a Republican, and has almost invariably voted that ticket, and bad a right to expect that his premises would be free from tbe attacks of negro burglars. At 2 o'clock on Monday morning a crowd of desperadoes, num bering from eight to fifteen, according to various estimates, surrounded the store for the purpose of robbery. They had pickets around tbe building and alto on the Pigeon Roost road, both east and west of it. With, a 'pick and a hatchet" tbey "took out the bricks in front beneath the window, and made a hole large enough for a man to enter. He went in and opened the door for the rest of the robbers, tbe key being in the lock on the inside. SIR. ROBT. DURANT 8 STATEMENT. "I went to bed at 10 o'clock, leaving my wife and Mrs. Kate Wright sitting in tbe bedroom in rear of tbe store, my bedroom being adjoining, with a door leading into that room and another door leading from it into the store. About 2 o'clock in the morning I heard Mrs. Wright cry out for assistance and wake my wife up. I got np and entered into the' bedroom oocupied by Mrs. Wright. She was sitting up in bed holding her head in her hands and blood was flowing profusely from a wound in her head. The lamp was on the mantel piece. I took it up and walked to the door leading into the store, which door was ajar. I opened the door and asked, ' who is there?1 A voice re plied, ' G d d m you, I am here,' and a pistol was fired. The ball shattered the lamp chimney, while another shot, fired in rapid succession, went wide of the mark. I retreated and attempted to close the door. Suddenly, and as I did so, several shots were fired and a black looking negro ran towards, me and struck at me with a pistol. I shut the door in his face and retreated through Mrs. Wright's bed room to my'own, got out into the lot and escaped. While this was going on my wife was outside strug gling with the negroes. On the alarm being given a negro in tbe store said, 'Run, boys, r,un!' and I heard a sliding of feet, as if the party were barefooted. The negroes carried off about one hun dred dollars worth of goods." MRS. nrj rant's statement. " I was waked up by my husband, and beard Mrs. Wright in the next room ex claim, 'Oh, God! Oh, my God!' Got up and went into tbe room, and several shots were fired from the store. I ran out in rear and passed threugh the alley to the roao; met two negroes on thebridgeabouttwentyyards from the store, and begged them to go and save my husband. One of them, a tall, copper-colored negro, seized me by the throat, the other got hold of my feet and threw me down. I was struck and dragged by tbe hair of the head across tbe road, and the. negroes attempted to outrage me, but I struggled and fought and they failed to accomplish their pur pose. My night dress was torn off, and I was beaten and kicked, but I got away from them and crawled sn my bands and knees to a neighbor's house sod gave the alarm, wken the negroe fle There were about fifteen of (hem, including several boys. I think I left a mark on the face of one of iy assaihnts on tbe bridge." LOU FARR1S STATEMENT. Lou Farris lives in tbe adjoining h juse. She is a colored woman, intelli gent and honest. She stated as follows: "At twelve o'clock Sunday nitibt I saw a crowd of negroes around Mr. Durant's grocery; they were watching and dig-. ging at tbe wall in front. I was afraid to give any alarm, as no man was in me house, and the negroes outside num bered ten or fifteen. I stood at the win dow with another colored woman and watched them. They were dressed in black, except one, who was in his shirt sleevs. I would not be able to recog nize any of them. Some of them were sitting on Durant'f fence; others sta tioned on the road in front of my house. Heard the shouting and cries for help; saw Mrs. Durant struggling with two ne groes on the bridge, which is nearly in front of my house. The negroes knocked her down and beat her. I heard one negro say, 'Don't you run; come back,' as several negroes were running away on account of the screams and shots. The negroes bad a dark lantern, which was flashed in several directions during the row in Durant's store." Many of the negro burglars are known, and will be arrested, Chief Athy having placed several of bis best men on the track of the villains. Our re porter has every reason to' believe that the negroes succeeded in committing outrages which cannot be described in print. These desperadoes reside at and around Central Point, and belong to n gang of well known burglars and robbera who have been a terror in that neighbor hood for months. Yesterday detective McCune and Ser geant McElroy arrested three ntgroes,'1 Miles Ledbetter, Thos. Bryan and Lewis Jefferson on the charge of being con cerned in the outrage and robbery. This morning the Recorder sent the prisoners back to jail, refusing to accept bail. The police are on the track of the gang, and other arrests will follow. r- To Colonel W. D.

Tbe City Tax Collector was kept busy this morning making out tax receipts to parties availing themselves of the dis count (1J per cent, per month) allowed tq, all who pay their taxes for the cur rent year. The rate-of taxation for this year is only $1 80 on tbe f 100, instead of $4 last year, and the only way of keeping the rate so low is by a prompt payment of the taxes. Another object to be attained is that tbe streets will be immediately repaired and the employes, who have waited patiently for their wages, will be paid as soon as possible. We would, therefore, advise our readers to asiist the city and pay their taxes promptly and at the same time save the discount. - Small tables at Willett's, 37 Adams street. 2t . Sews.
