Ttie gin boose owned by Mr*. Aline Smith, in West Fe liciana, fire mil«» from Jackson, was destroyed on Wednesday night Several gin booses have also been burned in East Feli ciana, and one negro who had stolen cotton in his possession, was killed and his »tore horned. Another case is mentioned where a store owned by s negro was fired by nnknown parties, and the citirens, white and black, as sisted the proprietor in removing all of his goods to a place of safety. Ob the same road, five miles from Bayou Sara, a store owned by a white man, a democrat, named Lopes, was fired and burned to the ground for the reason that he purchased stolen cotton from the negroes, Another Steve in East Baton Reuse, and located below Port Hudson, was destroyed, as was also an other, at the old Breastworks, while two in the samo vicinity, owned respectively by a negro and white man, were left standing lor the reason that neither of them dealt in seed or stolen cotton. Otbw reports of similar occur rences are received from pointe along the river, which lead to the belief that the citizens, feeling that the officer« of the law will not make an effort to put a step to the wholesale stealing of cotton, have resolved to take the matter into their own hands and will make ao effort to pot a stop to the pilfering. Planters in the section named complain that they can not secure labor sufficient to pick their cot ton, but that the. negroes idle •way the day without working and ♦ben night comes go to the fields, pack as mnch as they can carry away in sacks and take it to tbeir vhdérgrotrod depots or Stores where they tradb it for whisky or gewgaw«, and continue their raids on tbs fields as often as tbev wish, but refuse to work for the planters —several of whom are now in the city endeavoring to secure labor. One of the gentlemen who fur* niftbes the information states that unless labor can be secured in lime, the loss to the planter« in the parish«» named will not be less than three hundred thousand dol lars.
