Charles Brumfield is dead. He
has long been a resident of Amite
county, and known to most of our
people at a quiet old gentleman,
generally respected, and was said
to be a good farmer. Was a mem
ber of the Methodist church in good
standing for many years. His death
occurred on last Saturday, at his
home in the East Fo'k neighbor
hood. Wo hope his future will be
lasting rest in the light above. ,
A Flagrant Outrage. ! '
A case of diabolism was perpe
trated in the neighborhood of New
ion church, seven or eight miles
north-east of Liberty, on lastSatur-
ay night, at a school examination
and concert given at the ParsonHill
schoolhouse.where Miss Ida Dixon,
colored, had just closed a session
of the public school for colored
children at that place. The oc
currence of which we speak took
place while the teacher with her
pupils were engaged in singing for
the entertainment of a large audi
ence of colored people, and quite
number of white persons who had
been invited to be present upon
this occasion, and the improvised
auditorium was a platform in front
of the school room, which had been
curtained and decorated for the
purpose of the examination, recila
tions and music, and was crowded
with the teachers, pupils and
spectators, patrons of the school,
musicians and invited guests, when,
to the surprise and consternation
of the assembled throng.a double
barreled shotgun, heavily charged
with shot, was fired from a short
range into this assembly, wounding,
it is said, fourteen persons, some
of them seriously, others slightly
The greatest injury done was to
Baldwin Haynes, who will prob
ably lose one of his eyes. In most
violations of law somesort of excuse
may be offered, but in this case no
one pretends that there was any
cause whatever to justify or even
palliate the enormity of this grave
offense against the good order of
society and the recognized laws of
the land, not to say any thing of
the fiendish cruelty inflicted upon
so many innocent persons engaged
in so worthy a cause as the one
that called together this assemblage
of people. This flagrant outrage
upon the rights of the colored race
in this neighborhood should not be
passed over without an effort on
the part of the white people to find
out the perpetrators of it, and have
them punished to the full extent of
the violated law. We have heard
of no efforts being made to investi
gate the affair, but our officers
should exhaust their power to bring
to punishment these lawless fiends,
be they found among the high or
the low, the old or the young. For
the safety of all, no effoit should be
spared by our officers in bringing
them to answer to the offended
laws, made for the protection of
both the races.
