IiTKCHIHG Iff LOUISIANA.
Eisewhcrci will be found an article
taken from the daily papers, showing
that fourteen men were killed down in
Louisiana, all about one dirty Negro
nan and a poor white strumpet, Osb
body of mon unlawfully whipa one
man. and another body nnlawfnlly
aUempta to defend him, which ends in
(he death of fonrtecn men. This is
drcadfnl. A white woman is low
enongh to liro with s Negro man, and
white men sacrifioe fourteen lires for it.
If itwaea white man and "adegraded
Negro woman” not quite so much
tfenld bare hcea said, and had it
been a respectable colored lady-
the half million heiress of Georgia or
the most refined colored lady of the
lead—it would hare been thought by
some of these men a erinio for colored
men to roaent an insult from a white
Snob things are a disgrace to any
conntry. All honest oolored men tro
opposed to erime, as well as white
men. They beliere it should be pnn
isfaed. They do not beliere in am
bushing or any sneb cowardly revenge,
bnt they are very tired of such one-
tided jnstice that brought about all
tbia trouble and bloodshed.
-wrong for a oolored man and white
woman to be intimate (according to
tbe law of onr land), even tbongh
they were convinced that God made
each for the other and cojid not be
happy apart, after learning to lore
each other. It was wrong for tbow
white men to gire Ibsl poor Negro
hundred lashes, eren though he coi
sented to take it rather than be
lynched; and it waa wrong for colored
men te fire into them while they were
administering a jnst (?) punishment.
It makes our heart sad te read of
aucb tbiags. W« think how easily
these inconsiderate and irresponsible
men can pluagc a whole State into
trouble. It sadly reminds us of the
(bolisbneas of John Brown’s raid, of
the reckless daring of ibc Nat Turner
alanghtcr, and the effect such things
had in hastening on the memorable
and dreaded war that followed. We
must leare things (o work oat accord,
ing to tbe will of God. Man must
notsoekrorenge, for God says: "Ven-
geaaoe is mine.”

A negro at Oak Ridge had been for
Sometime past on too intimate terras
with a degrsded white women. There
was no law to meet the case and it
was determined to give the negro
hundred lashes and then force him to
leave the conntry rather than lynch
him. To this the negro consented
and while a coromiltco of respectable
oitiicDs were administering tbe blows,
they were fired into by a party in
ambnsh presumed to bo fricods of the
negro and half dosen of the party
were more or leas seriously wounded
A negro turnod informer on tb

party of armed cituens went after
