county offices were iu town on Wednesday
last, doing the usual amount of hugging
and playing the agreeable generally. The
candidates for Representative addressed
their fellow citizens at some length upon
questions of State and court policy, each
showing in regular order the folly of his
competitors positions and the soundness of
his own As all persons in the country
have heard them we forbear commenting.
{tfesy We learn from reliable authority
that a serious affray occurred in tire neigh
borhood of Parley P. Hill’s, six miles from
Cotton Plant, between two men, McKin
ney and Staggs, in which McKinney shot
Staggs, killing him almost instantly; after
which a friend of Staggs shot McKinney,
killing him A man named Marsh was
shot twelve times, but not seriously hurt

■V&T The St. Paul Pioneer says: Old
steamboat men declare that the signs of
tile past four or five seasons point to the
permanent drying up of the Mississippi
river, reducing it from a steam navigable
for the largest boats the whole season to
one of uncertain navigation like the Mis
souri, passible at certain seasons, and the
rest of the year shrunk to a mere creek,
winding along among sand-bars and shoals.
There is certainly some change taking
place in our climate that is affecting our
lakes and rivers. They are greatly differ
ent in their habits to what they were eight
•or ten years ago. The average of water is
steadily decreasing. Our June rise, once
ascertain as the coming of the month, has
totally ceased. The heaviest rains, which
once would have swelled the river several
icct, now uo not seem to aflect it in tnc
There are many theories advanced to
explain this. One is that the climate is
undergoing some change, which seems
plausible; as those who have studied the
meteorology of our .State are convinced
that this change is taking place. Another
theory is, that the cultivation of the coun
try, destruction of the forests, and other
physical causes have tended to increase the
rainfall, and retard the flowing of the extra
moisture into the streams.
Whatever may he the cause, the effect
certainly exists, and the same thing has
been on all the Western rivers, which are
gradually shrinking up. In our case, how
ever, the evil is less to be feared, because
our railroad system is so nearly developed,
.that our river navigation is not now the
necessity it once was, to our commercial
public. The river cau never again, wheth
er it continues navigable or not, assume the
important part it has hitherto played in the
.development of our State.

cries of “bang him.” The excitement is un
Sixth Dispatch—1:58 r. m.—The members
of the Convention, together with tlie President
are being arrested one by one and confined.
A little more order and quiet prevails.
Seventh Dispatch—2:30 P. M.—On the meeting
of the Convention at noon, the populace sur
rounded the building. There was an immense
mob of negroes inside and outside of the Insti
tute, but the police and people quickly became
masters of the situation, and the building was
closely besieged. Finding themselves besieg
ed, those inside liung out. a flag of truce:
whereupon the police ascended the stairs to
protect the members; but no sooner bad they
reached the hall than the parties inside opened
an indiscriminate fire. The flag then was no
longer respected, and every head visible in the
building was fired at. This continues, and it
is not known how many in the building have
been killed. Arrests continue to be made, and
the crowd is increasing.
Eighth Dispatch—2:45 l* M.—The parties
assembled inside of the Institute have surren

not expected to live.
The Times' extra says the riot, occurred by
one of the negroes in the procession this morn
ing shoving a white man and tripping him.
A policeman, who supposed that the man had
been struck, advanced to arrest the negro,
when he wub met with a volley of pistol shots,
bricks, etc., which at once produced a general
alarm; and hence the bloody tragedy that has
been created.
The excitement has greatly subsided, and
the utmost order prevails.
Mayor Monroe, previour to tlie riots, had an
interview with General Daird, and asked for
assistance. General Baird consented ; but the
troqps came after the disturbance was over.
