both the Feliciana parish*»« as well
as to the parish*»» of East and
Weft Baton Kooga
The burning of cotton gins and
coontrr stores eootinoee— three or
four hârfag been destroyed by in
cendiaries daring the past throe or
fonr days. 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.
