*9lie Negro Riot.
SBC TÄOTTBLR BROUGHT ABOUT FOR P0 LIÏTCAI. EFFECT. •"Fro* 'ho Atlante (Ga.) Herald, Aug. 21. Wo havo resisted with all our power the belief that the threat ened riots in Middle Georgia had any solid basis of truth. That three or four thousand negroes should deliberately determine to rise in force ou a certain day and massacre the white people of twen ty counties was too horrible to be trelieved. At last, however, after a careful survey of the field, we find no es cape from the conclusion that such a plot did exist. In the first place, a letter was found addressed to the captain of a negro company, instructing him with great particu larity when and where to com mence the attack. Negroes who were captured confessed that such an order had been regularly pro mulgated. Spies who had no knowledge of the letter, who were sent out to reconnoitor, brought back the same story. Bands of anped^negroes were found in mili tar? ar*ay with thoir camp-fires burning and pickets around the camp. White scouts that were sent out were fired at from the woods. And at last a negro messenger (a nephew of " Gen. Morris '') is caught with a letter bearing the same infamoas orders of the letter that had been found in Washing ton county. Hence there can be no doubt but that an uprising of the negroes was planned, and that if it had not been discovered the farm-honses of the couuties in the " black belt " would have been at tacked at dawn on yesterday morning. This fact being established, it becomes a matter of importance to know what cause it was, and what influence, that so stirred up these negroes. This problem, we feel confident our correspondent, who is now in the midst of the threatened counties, will be able to solve for the renders of the Herald in a few days. In the moantime, it is be lieved that the trouble was brought abont for the pnrpose of political effect. Whether this is true or not, we qgll attention to the un paralleled moderation with which the Georgia people have acted in this matter. They have acted with a patient enduranoe that challenges the ad miration of the world. We assert confidently that if such a damning conspiracy ns this had been dis covered in any State of the North, or East, or West, that blood would have been flowing now freer than water, and the trees would have been burdened with a fruit that nature never intended them to bear. _ Andrew Johnson's Early Love Affair. In John Savage's " Life of An drew Johusou," the reader is given the belief that Mr. Johnson loved and was disappointed in lus affec tions by their object. Such is not the case, so far as the conclusion is stated. He did fail in love with a young lady of good family and estimable character. She re sponded iu the fullest degree, and both anticipated felicity in a future life together. The parents, of the young lady, however, objected to the marriage upon the grounds of Mr- Johnson's youth (he was yet iu bis minor years) and lack of means. Upon hearing this Mr. Johnson sought an interview with the young lady, told her of the de cision of her parents, aud of the course he himself had resolved upon. With his native high prin ciple, he said there was nothing left to them bet to part and forget what they had been to each other. The lady felt otherwise, aud frankly told him that she would go with him wherever he might lead, and Usât she would not hesitate to trust her life and its keeping into his hands. The strong j r.de and love of fair dealing of Mr. John son could not permit this, and, notwithstanding his love, he de nied the proposition and left the place, only returning long years after, wbon tho fatly was married and the mother of a family. Thus, it will be understood that the lady did not prove faithless ami cause any wounded feelings to the sub ie« of this sketch.— (Greenville Intelligencer. I I to or Singer Sewing HVfa chines.
