li will be remembered that a" cumber
ol colored politicians, preachers, and office-seekers,
met at Nashville in May,
and alter abusing the white people of
Tennessee to their heart' content, ap
pointed a Board of Commissioners, which
board appointed an Exploring Commit
tee to look out for a good place for the
colored people to emigrate to. Rev.
Balaam Frierson, of Maury, candidate for
County Trnsteee, last year, was on this
committee. A meeting was held in
Nashville recently, to receive the re
port of the Exploring Committee, from
the hands of H. A. Napier, chairman.
The report recommended as a suitable
place for colored people to emigrate to,
Greet Bend, on the Arkansas Kiver, in
the southern portion of Kansas. The
lands are well located and cheap, but the
climate is extremely cold in the middle
of winter. One thousand dollars is nec
essary for a Tennessee emigrant to have;
$500 to take him there and fix him up, j
and $500 worth of provisions. After the i
reading of the report, Rev. Balaam Frier-
son, col., of Maury, made the remark
which we copy below. The Reverend
Balaam makes serious charges against
the white people of lennessee. lie says:
"The colored people cannot live in the
poisonous element which prevails
throughout this state, woere the young
(white) children are taught to hate them
and consider them their inferiors'in every
respect, no negro can get justice, as
evinced by the hanging of several during
the past few years.
Now, we are all perfectly willing for
Balaam and his people to go; if they
think their condition can be improved,
the white people are all willing for them
to go. A better class of laborers will
come in and take their places. Our op
position to this emigration movement
is solely because we believe it would tur
out badly for the negroes. If the hardy
and thrifty Yankees cannot make a living
in that inhospitable country, we are quite
sure the negro will not be able to do so.
If the negroes go, they must do so entire
ly at the suggestions of these men, and
railroad agents it is our duty to tell them
that tbey are better off where they are
If they have a thousand dollars, that will
enable them to live comfortably here, end
in putting it in a trip to Kansas, they may
lose it, and get no value received. But
just listen to Balaam:
"Rev. B. Frierson, of Columbia, follow
ed in a lengthy speech, in which he pro
nounced false several statements made
by Napier, He advocated the organiza
tion ot a colony to proceed to Kansas as
soon as possible, and settle in some fer
tile part of that State. He thought it use'
less tor tnem to go without some money,
but said they could get along first rate
with a small capital. The colored people
could not live in the poisonous element
which prevailed through this State, where
the young children were taught to hate
them and consider them their inferiors in
every respect. No negro could get jus
t ice, as was evinced by the hanging of
several during the past few years. As for

j that villagers could not see tbe bufgy
s;i, that happened in this State as well as
that. An emigrant could get 160 acres of
land there for merely paying the registra
tion fee of ?17 and staying on it tor five
years, lhey were compelled to plant
forty acres in trees, but after three years
could draw $80 annually for it for twenty
years, lie advised them to quit spending
t-o much on excursions, and suggested
tluit they save their money for preparing
to go to Kansas. A negro man in that
itte had lately sold his wheat crop for
521, M), at a profit of $18,000. They were
.oppressed both politically and otherwise
bere, and should go to some place where
those rights could be enjoyed. There
were traitors of their own color among
iWjn, but they should steer clear of such.
The tailored population were further back

more education a colored man or woman

"We tu pleasure of recording tbe
presence ot Mw Alice Hughes, daugh

air. niageieys command went into the
woods, where they remained on the watch
until daylight. When day broke the ne
groes commenced disbanding, and the de
parture of several squads reduced the
number to twenty. -The whites then char
ged upon and captured the entire party.
They were disarmed and turned loose with
a warning.
Shortly after daylight two gentlemen
Messrs. Lawson and Wilhelm who had
gone on a scout in another direction .were
ambushed and fired upon while return
ing to Waynesboro. They were riding
quietly along the road when suddenly two
Bnots were nreu ai mein irom ine wcou
which lined the nign-way. the fire was
without effect and the would-be assassin
took to flight. Pursuit through the thick
covert ot tne trees was soon found im
practicable and had to be abandoned.
Later in the a colored boy was arrest
ed who knew of the bring and gave the
names of the negro men in ambush An

Two negroes, Frank Yineent and Abel
Moore, implicated in the affair, were ar
rested Wednesday night on a charge o
attempting to incite insurrection, and
brought to the city yesterday morninu on
the train and lodged in jail for safe keen
ing. Three other arrests were made near
Waynesboro yesterday, but the prisoners
were detained in confinement in that town
on account ot tne revelations which were
made by them. One of them proved to
be the nephew of the negro, Joe if orris
who is the head centre of insurrectionists.
He was also acting in the capacity of cour
ier tor his uncle, and upon his person
was found a dispatch from Morris, coun
tersigned by Prince Rivers, and Candy
Harris, addressed to the negroes in anoth
er section of the country and command
ing them to rise upon the whites and kill
them whenever they could be found.
They were to seek out those who had guns
and kill them hrst in order that they
might procure arms. The man also stat
ed that his uncle, Morris, had given ver
bally the same directions to all the ne
groes with whom he was in communica
tion, une ot tne negroes asKed Morns
a day or two ago what they must do if the
white people suspected anything and at
tempted to arrest them, "Kill them on
the spot if they have no legal warrant
changing you with crime,'' said Morris
But suppose they have a warrant:
Then kill them anyhow, was the fiend's
reply. The evidence of these men seem
ed to show conclusively that a general
massacre of the white people upon an ap
pointed day had been concerted by this
triumvirate of scoundrels Prince Rivers,
Joe Morris and Harris. Rivers mnv de
ny, indeed he did deny in the Constitution
alist of yesterday morning, that he knew
anything of the matter, but it is certain
that his name has been used in all the ors
ders which hav3 been issued and that the
poor deluded uecroes of Burke, Jefferson
AVashington and Johnson think tbey are
acting under the authority' of and will be
protected by a Major General of the South

even the slighest portion of a hard-earned
money he had deposited, unsuspect-
nety, for the fiepublican sharks mtirest-
ed in swindling the colored people out of
their little all. He was told that the bank
had not paid a cent of the S5,000 it ex
tracted from the colored men, women
and children of Middle Tennessee, and
very little was expected. Folding his
arms solemnly across his breast he re
marked; "Hadn't ole marster come to

a sight of vexation and loss of time in

that t here are two Lasea correspondents.
In answer to the above, we would say
in tbe first place, that anyono who is
such an expert critic, and yet so cred
ulous as to think from the simple reas
sou that some of our items appeared in
the local columns while the remainder
were in tbe Supplement, that there were
two Lasea correspondents, has our un
affected sympathy. Our readers are too
much like preachers not to know when
we "rvinar-size" we mean full
Hedged, but small. As for Mr. Critic,
we would reccommend that he ask M.
T. Jug what the term means. Iu our
own behalf we would state that not
withstanding the fact that we were priv
ileged to attend school but very lew
months, we nevertheless are always
able to comprehend all such simple
terms as tbe above.

truth and that is, Miss TSelle Hoover
has bad Ovarian Dropsy some twelve or
fifteen months. Dropsy ot tbe ovary
u its ordin iry form consists ( I believe)
u the disease and enlargement of one
or more of the graapiu vesicles, or of
ova, which they inclose. The actual
condition of the dropsical ovary issub-

is but one cryst, and this may be no big

enough to contain many gallons; its
walls may be tnin ana nexioie, or tbey
may be firm and half an inph or more
in thickness; lastly, the fluid contained
in tne cryst may oe inin or consistent,
limpid or glutinous and of various
tints, so that it may be colorless, green,
