Soon after there ! a simuitaneous charge into the town from every ro^d of armed men on horseback, numbering about two hundred. , Howard was found in Tom Sewall's garden. Ho refused to surrender and was killed. Two of the horses of the party were wounded!' by shots from the garden, and t\yp other negroes-Jake Ransom and Tod Flanders-were wounded at the same time. Dug Tillis was found and he, with two other bad negroes, was taken to the outskirts of the corporation, whipped, and ordered to leave. Armed squads were then sent out and captured the arms of the suspicious colored peoijle. Eighteen or twenty double barrelled guns, two Winchester rifles, and a number of pistols were taken. The armed crowd then dispersed.' The cause of the trouble between the whites and negroes was the firing by the negroes several days ago upon a committee of white men who had been commissioned to interview several white men who were charged with living on terms of social equality with the colored people of this parish. By the advice of these nien the negroes were influenced to strike for unreasonably high wages. Alarming reports had been in circulation for some time that the misled colored people held . frequent night meetings, arid were procuring arms and ammunition frOm many quarters to'use against the white people in a race conflict they contemplated bringing about. Recent events established the fact that they were not groundless, and the white people prepared themselves on a war routing. The repeated threats on the part of the negroes against the whites, the firing upon the committee and the cruel beating of a white child by a negro man a few weeks ago, so incensed the whites that they concluded they would bear it no longer, but would meet the issue as they did. Everything is quiet now. MaJ. Pauitza Shot. Sofia, June' 8(i.-Maj.

Cost of Constiniptlng the Hennepin Canal. Washington','-June 30.-The Secretary of war trapsmitted to the house the final repo^of Cant. M. L.

Cant. Marshall, in conclusion, states that the canal cannot be of such vailue to commerce as it would be were the line throughput of greater capacity. It is evident, he says, that the canal should be built as a public necessity, either by the government or a private corporation, The Week in Congress.
