UBJUST CHASQE8. It seems that the Northern mind is so surcharged with malice aud deviltry, aud hatred to the South, that nothing is too mean and con temptible for the majority of radi cals aud radical newspapers to cir culate about nuything that is Southern. To them nothing good cau come oat of Nazareth. . The latest Attempts of these ma jignaut devils to injure the South is the rvport published by one West Stever, attorney for ex-Congressman liobertsou, in the Chi cago Time, to the cflect that the World's Centenulal and Cotton Ex portion to bo held at New Orleans is couuected with tho Louisiana lottery. Upon this ground Ibis nn principled attorney attempted to influence Postrriaater-Geoeral G res ham against the Exposition, and have it placed on tho list of frauds, therefore denying the directors of the Exposition the use of the mails. Tho grounds of this villainous at tempt to injure the Exposition are based upon the fact that Mr. Chns. T. Howard, oue of the priucipul stockholders iu the lottery com pany, subscribed and paid to the Exposition fuud tho sum of $25,- 000, as many otber wealthy firms and individuals have done. The Exposition and the lottery company are two separate and dis tinct enterprises, have nothing to do wku each other in any way whatever, have different missions entirely, nnd no sane person could for oue moment suppose the two institutions were in uny way con nected. Happily the managers of the Exposition have made public statements iu the New Orleans newspapers in regard to tho mat ter, and deny that the lottery com pany has auy con uectiou with the Exposition. They will thus thwart the low and mean attempts of Stever to injure the great euter prise which will do so much for our Southern country. HOUSE COMMITTEES.

Etc. Correspondence of the Democrat-Star. IIduli, Ala., Jaaaaxy 1, 14. Dear Democrat-Star : Since my last letter to your read era the merrie Christmas day shave ccruo and gone, carrying with them many happy memories, and doubtless many sad ones also, for so closely is the web of live woven that joy aud.sorrow often join hand to hand. Here iu Mobile Christ mas was celebrated much better and more in unisouj withits pro prieties than for many years,' past, there being much less drunkenness on ths streets and less boisterous conduet.than for years, aud wheth er this was doe to the iuhereut good sense of oar people or to the watchfulness ot onr authorities, matters bat little so the fact re mains. On Christmas day most of the bar-rooms;closed early in the afternoon, and deserved and re ceived tbeihanka of our best citi zeus for thoir good taste and judg ment in doing so. The day was all that- could be wished for clear, bright and pleasant and we do not remember when so quiet and orderly a Christmas was spent in our city. To-day a new leal opens: in the chapter of Life, and taking ad vantage of It I teuderto you and your many readers me compli ments of the seasou, ami wisn that to all it may be a year ot prosperity and happiness. Life's ledger open, sod a strange new data b on tho page that else were pure sod white; Aud we'mnst eaat our balance iheel of fa'. Sum up the eolumui of tho pant, aud write What we have gained from the great circling year, What we have lost in hours swept idly by. What we have spent In Tallies alt too dear, What we bate eared in life's great treasury J What notoe of promise, written in our name, Have gone to be protested In life's bank ; Wbnt checks for charily nnd virtue draVti Our aouls have Lever signed but with a blank. The deeds that we have done with vaunt ing prido, Hoping that some largo interest thy would pny, May count for nothing on that other sido, Whore augols keep the books a differ ent way." , Mobile to-day takes a long stride forward, for from this date tho ex hibition and sale of snch papers as tho Police Gazette is prohibited in onr city, and right glad are we ot it. It has long been a curse to our people, for it was no uncommon thiuii to see a young man of from 15 to IS years ot ago with one of those filthy publications sticking in his pocket while his mind was poisoned with its vile literature. Look at this scrap, cut from a re- ceut number, aud nsk it any man in this country after reading it could to'erato one in bia bouse or place of business s The parsons of soveral denominations of the West and Sooth bare united lately The fools! in an attack on the stage, Thia is always the wtiy they overdo their work. It Isn't the stage tfiat is wrong- it is the soiled 8nnday-school women who are getting on It. These parsons, In the bliud fury of their attack, overlook the real cause of dramatis rottenness alto getherit exists in the Sunday-school, In the basement under the pulpit and iu the choir-loft above it. Let them reform the damsels of the Bible classes, and, the em bryo eomio artis'es of the choir, aud the stage will be pare. No mail or woman in the West or South ought to couseutto its sale or exbibuiou after such vile and filthy lies as tho above ap neared iu its columns, but let it be confined to the North aud East, where it cau feed on the poisonous malaria ot their society atmos- phere. Let others do as they will) but for us we.wiii nave no more oi it. Forthia one act of Recorder Owen our iieoole cive him dee credit, but he needs do a ereat deal more oetore a oaiance win snow on that Bide ot bis political page. Of this, however, more anon.

Take Taj lor, Mcliitosb, Kel ly, Bragg, Kicb, Lay, and iudeed with oue or two notable exceptions all of tbeui take high rank tor good looks aud prospective great ability. This good year of 1684 will be of great moment in the history of Mo bile. A legislative ticket has to htt made up that will be a beuefit and not a curse to our peoffe, and such members as we bate had in the post, like the republican party, mutt go, for our people are deter mined tba: frauds and shams in oar political lite mast and will be pulverized, and laws that alt good men declare infamous most be re pealed and uew laws passed that will not bear unjustly on our peo ple. The poor clerk on a salary must not be compelled to pay a tax on 1100 while his employer who makes bis thousands goes scott free. The people are reading these thiugs op, thauks to the Demo crat Stab, and they are thiukiug and talking, and if the wire-pullers think they cau agaiu fasten any or the old gang on tbeiu they will wake up from their dream after the August election and be more as tonished than Judge McCarron was at the decisiou of the supreme court.

Three Citlxeus killed and Two Iladly wounded by a Negro MobThe Negroes Shot and HudgY Cbri8tmM Eve one of tbe most shocking aud diabolical outrages was committed by a mob of negroes in Yazoo' City, that has ever been enacted in tills State, by wbich threo prominent citisens of that place were shot down' in the streets iu cold blood, and two others badly wouuded. As might have been expected1, a few nlirhts afterward au outraged community arose iu their might, went to the jail and quickly dispatched the guilty parties, and left their dead bodies in t he jail as a warning to friends of tbe fiends. We get the following particulars of tbe dreadful Affair from the Timet Democrat t Christmas eve, at a late hoar, a difficulty occurred at Balkans' saloon between two negroes, Rich ard Uibbs and Kinney Logan. Mr. J. F. Posey entered, and observing that Gibbs was ariuad insisted up on his arrest, nnd offered to ussist the otuuer to imtke it. John James, a negro lnit uir, interfered,- una some words passed between rosey and Uibbs, This about ended tile affair, but latter in the eveuinjr, while Posey was passing Lynch's butcher shop, hn became involved ill a difficulty witJi John James and V. 11.

At this moment a siennl shot was fired, und at ouce a volley was opened upou the mi prepared party which bud gatnereu to see I'osey give a beating to tbe necro James. Many ot the shots were from double-barrel guns load ed with buckshot, slugs aud bird- shot, aud from the fact that there was cross-firing and tiring trom am ttush, 't ww clearly shown that the a tlai r waa premeuiiaieu muraer: ttiut tue negroes nan congrenue.' in a body, with their arms secreted at various points, and at' a giveu signal opened fire upon tbe nusns nectiog citizen. At the first fire Air. John a. Posey and bin brother Carnot were shot dead : young Jasper Nicholls was mortally wouuded, and died a few hours after, and Mr. U. C. Ellet aud Fritz Hadder were both badly wounded. Since then, tbe commanity has been at fever neat never such n Christmas hd dawned iu YhzoO, Hundreds followed the dead to their craves.
