They demand enormous interest for

reason why more farmers are not
diversifying their orops, Lntadozen
Yankee farmers comedown here with
money to buy their land and carry
themselves until a orop comes off,
and the present lamentable system
would be broken upln thisoouutry in
two years.
A Northern farmer needs but little
money to start for himself in this
county. The farm houses are cheap
ly built, lumber is plentiful and cheap
and the question of fodder, fuel and
heavy clothing worries no one. By
the time one crop is gatherd the
ground is ready for something else,
There are no better markets at home
and prices here are more favorable
to him. Good farm labor can be
bad for $8 per month and there are
good farms to be picked updog cheap,
The Northern man who will come
inhere and take 100 acres of land,
diversify Ills crops and expend the
intelligence and muscle lie docs in
the North will get rich inside of ten
years. Let him start in clear of debt
and nothing can prevent his making

A Jackson, Miss., special of the 25,
to the Appeal, says that Mr. Mc
Wlllie Mitchell, son of Dr. Thomas
J. Mitchell, superintendent of the
lunatic asylum, was killed here last
nilfht hy a negro named Boh White
sides.' Young men and hoys had
been parading the town in parties ■*
during the afternoon and evening
shooting flre-erackers and roman
cumlies ami hlwoiligtin horns. About
9:S() o'cloek in the evening one of
these parties, composed of eight or
ten young gentlemen, including Me
Willie Mitchell, met the said While
sides and two or three other negroes
on President street, when the negro
became offended at one of them for
blowing a horn. It was not Mitchell |'.
who blew tile horn, for lie had none.
Tlie negro became very offensive and .
allusive in his language toward the I wn
party, whereupon an altercation of
words only ensued between lie and
Mitchell. Mitchell was unarmed at
the time, but oil account of the re
peated abuse and threats of tlie negro
burrowed a pistol from one of his
companions. The negro went into
an adjacent butcher simp, wh re he
had usually been employed, I A- not
then on duty, and procured a itHtell
er's knife, tlie same being handed
to him by a companion, another ne
gro named Alex. Jacksoo, with tlie
remark, "Don't you let anybody
curse you ; take this and go." Hear
ing these threat* and observing from
tlie outside this preparation for a
fray, tlie party of .voting men stop
ped near the door and awaited his
approach. After remaining there a

toexecute previous threats, theyoung
men, thinking the matter ended, be

young Mitchell and a single com
panion had proceeded about twenty
or thirty feet, leisurely walking
along the pavenienl, Whitesides, ac
companied hy the negro Jackson,
who had given him the knife, and
another negro, Julius Alleu, rushed
P°o Mitchell and his companion,
Racing the latter from behind he
cut Mitchell across the throat, from
near the right corner of his mouth to
tl,e his neck. Mitchell's
companion interfered, a thrust wus
made at him by the negro, and
hl ® Hngures was nearly amputated
thereby. Mitchell, when cut, turn

facing, each shot taking effect, tlie
negro continuing to make desperate
thrusts with his knife, and the other

Mitchell's hand and was trying to
wrench his pistol from him while lie
was tiring. Both fell on each other
tlie negro dying in n few minutes.
Mitchell, with assistance, rose and
walked a block to Ledbetter's drug
store, where he died Iu about two
hours. Thus have the Joys and plea*,
