The negroes had "no suspicion of- the approach of this force and were too busily engaged in'their debauch to bo prepared to meet them. General Chalmers is a man of well knowu courage and coolness, and his bcin r in. command gives assurance that no blood will be unnecessarily shed* It is proper to stato that politics have nothing to do with tti* trouble, and that Mayor Woodson and a number of other meu who have been proscribed by the negroes are Republicans. News from Austin !s anxiously ex -pected this morning, but as it is twenty miles to. the nearest telegraph station, it is not probable that anything definite will be obtained before noon. The Appeal's spacial from Helena, this morning, lecounting the occupation of Austin by the negroes, as already reported* says: “At Bennett Landing Col Morgan held a council, and stated that it mas too hazardous to make an assault oil the blacks entrenched at Austin, owing to the want of proper authority ,and a suitable number of men and ammunition. Ho preferred landing at Moon’s, above Austin, where he could himself in better condition and ‘awiit Executive authority. Gen Chalmers name on board He objected log ut Moon’s, and insisted on Austin. There bp* been nothing rclia. hie from Austin to-day. The negroes report a fight; there last pight, and six or eight whites were killed. 1 The fallowing has just been received: Austin, Miss., Aug* 12; Col% Marion Campbell. Helen ti ; You are requested and authorized by me to suppress the riot at Austin to the end that peace may be restored and Ufo saved,    ? A [Signed]    Ames,    Governor. Another special to the Appeal from Helena, says a Mr. Sebastian, just arrived from Austin, makes the following statement: Between 300 and 40$ pen from Memphis landed at Shoo Fly; five miles below Austin this tBoroivg, and inarched iutotown without opposition-. at ti o’chick. The eititens fad tho place the previous evening; am negroes, after holding tile place a few hours and sacking it, le#fc for their homes. The Mempfroan* found about thirty negroes in town, who surrendered at once, eight of whopv were arrested and sent to jail. Tim otjujfrs w<Te non-com-%criants and were nj$ molested.

The whites have Austm barricaded, and will probably be .•blo to keep the negroes off, but thov need assittaace in provisions and amma- ! Several officials from Tunica countj who have been here since yes- <er ay morning, telegraphed to Gov. Ames, at Jackson, for assistance, but up to this time they have not heard a word frow him, This special s.Iso states that tho whites lave taken «0. K. Landing,” some throe miles below Austin, and the only ’auding in that vicinity at the present stage of {die water, and this is corrobo jated by the officers of (he steamer IL , e=er> wbieh arrived here to-ni^ht and who.8aw a body 9/1^,e men there’ as they passed. Clipt. James Ue. of the-steamer St. Frances, which arrived from below this morning, says that after the negroes who had Austin surrounded were repulsed yesterday they disappeared, and the story soon circulated that (hey were murdering women and children left unprotected on the surrounding plantations, which caused the mon who had been defending the place to start for their homos to protect their families. Austin was soon left without any de-fodders, except one or two white and the negroes enure in and mot session, aud proceeded to break u tho saloons and store and. help themselves. At last accounts they committed 110 acts of violence towards the few Whites who were unable’to got. away, bu, as they were becoming drunk tears wore entertained that they would burn the Village. Messengers wore sent to Copt. Lee to land there, but he had a lanre number of refugees on board, some of Ti rn vV?rgr0<i! had Greatened to Jill, Dr. Phillips, late Republica,, mews ber bf the Legislature, being of the uumber, and they begging him not to do so, he passed on up without landing Gen-. Chalmers came up on the St Francis to Peters’ Landiifg, wh.-ro the St, Francis met White with reinforcements from here, Ile was requested bv -Col. Morgan objected, as being in the —“dstjjftlre enemy, and subjecting the sides wIHlrmqt^WojsUaok from all ordered back the commh^Si^ntfpthw!* which had been landed, au^ Captain Finley’s company, which had been thrown out as skirpiishers, and calling the officers together, told them he felt it was his duty under under tho circum stances not to take the risk. To this more of the officers objected. Colonel Morgan then resigned, and Gen. Chalmers was elected commander, and land^ cd at Shoo Fly. Later.—The following has just been received; Helena, August 12—Thos. Haljcn & Co.: Send us reinforcements by the St. Francis. Send guns with fixed ammunition if possible. Send rations for ten days for five hundred men. [Signed] J. A. Chalmers. From which it woulcl seem General Chalmers had decided not to attack* Excitement here in regard to the Austin riot is becoming more intense, owing to unfounded tumors of young men of this city being killed in un attack on this place. The following is posted about the city: “Reliable men wanted to report on boai d the steamer St. Francis at 4 o clock this day. Arms and ammunition will be furnished to them. Also 300 men, well armed and equipped, to report At the same time and place. About 20 good artillerists wanted. Gen. King VV bite will assume command of tho above force.This has added to the excitement. It is thought several hundred men w ill go to-night on the St. Francis. Ihrec pieces of artillery are expected from Arkansas this p. rn. The Appeal's Helena special, dated 11:20 o’clock, this morning, says that some 30 Mississippians, stragglers from the force which left Memphis yesterday for Austin, arrived there this morning on the steamer White, and put up at Ontawares Hotel. The colored people, unable to understand the presence of an armed squad of men, became much excited. About 9 o’clock che Mayor ob- affectJipjleasanfty even lo the more robust and Vigorous. Nothing can be more* uncongenial to the nerves.or more T depressing to ti’e spirits than damp chilli^ Windup M cold rsias, 2 "»    ” of such unpleasant.visitors; jefe have a superabundance at this season. /cSm-mon prudence suggests, therefore, the propriety of fortifying the system afaint these insidious enemies of health jftid comfort, and the experience of more than a quarter of a century- points to Hostetter Stomach Bitters as an all-sufficient sanitary safeguard under such untoward circumstances. An accession of vital strength aud energy jp what is required to meet and overcome the unhealthy elements now present in the atmosphere. This increase of vital power, so necessary to meet the extraordinary drafts which an inclement season makes upon che system and the qonstifeu, tion, can be readily acquired by taking from two to three doses of Hostetter’s Bitters daily during the winter and spring months. The nature of this celebrated restorative is well known to the pubTic. It is composed of an absolutely pure diffusive*stimulent, medicated with the extracts and juices of the most effective tonic, alterative, anti-bii-ious and lax Hive Toot# and,herbs known to medical science. To the combination of these excellent ingredients, in pro. portions suitable to the exigencies of enfeebled, languid and diseased systems, toe great tonic alternatives owes its qffi ency as a preventive and caritive. A course of it commenced now, will prevent all danger of fever aud ague* rheu matism, or other ailments arising Horn cold aud damp pecular to the Spring months, and also prove a Safeguard against tim attacks of dyspepsia aud liver complaint which so frequently occur at this period of ihe year. auS.lm ited people, aiKr( -wji^e is fuse to Im- 8ivilized.f, * Mister bini;un out atjd&ijt u rn uJai i " to s left upro heifer i lia aud, i fter. th q elWgj .
