Wholesale and retail druggists new Orleans March 18.�?-a Yyi Nona miss., special to the times Democrat gives the following particulars the circumstances leading to the tragedy enacted at Carrollton miss., yesterday some months ago Robert Moore a Young Man from Leflore county went to Carrollton. There he meted Brown coloured with whom he had an altercation and the negro smeared and poured him molasses which he carried in a Jug. J. M. Liddell. Or. Of Greenwood a Friend Moore a happened to meet with Brown and made some allusions to his treatment Moore. Brown gave him some impudence and i Uddell started at him but was prevented by bystanders from attacking him. The negro then went and armed himself and induced others to do likewise. They stationed themselves the streets some concealing behind Trees. When Liddell came after supper from the hotel he observed them and Askari what they meant whereupon de Brown responded that it was none his did business. At that Liddell struck at de Brown with his fist and Edward and Charles Brown his brother both simultaneously fired upon Liddell one Ball striking the Elbow his right Arm. About this time some 15 20 shots were tired from different quarters. Liddell pulled his pistol and nit Edward Brown in the Abdomen and received one shot in the Fleshy part his leg. Charles Brown was shot in the shoulder. The parties who had taken part in the affray were brought before the mayor forthwith but waived examination and were bailed to appear before the next circuit court. Threats were continually made by the Brown Brothers that they would have Jim Liddelle a blood further that they had five double barrel shot guns loaded seven fingers deep and would a kill the first Man who put his foot their the 12th instant they made affidavits against James Liddell and others including some the Best citizens the place and men who knew nothing the difficulty charging them with assault with intent to murder in the previous difficulty. Previous to the opening the trial yesterday Brown boasted the Street that he had his body guard and would shoot the first Man that made a motion in his direction. The Case was called at noon when the court House was nearly tilled with negroes who stationed themselves around and about the Brown Brothers. The attorneys were proceeding with the Case when suddenly appeared about too White men All Well armed. Perceiving their Entrance de Brown Drew his pistol and fired in the direction Liddell who was Between his attorneys and thereupon the firing became general. Ten were instantly killed and two others have since tiled. Some escaped by jumping through windows a distance at least 20 feet from the ground. On most the dead bodies arms were found.

San Antonio March 18.�?to say that the exercises at St. Mary a Church yesterday were meat interesting and would not be doing the services ample justly for the whole arrangement was simply perfect. The Church was most tastefully and elaborately adorned with the a Emerald and with snowy Flowers interspersed Between the picture St. Patrick the Patron Saint the Day seemed to smile with a Beneficent brow Over the vast congregation that had assembled to do him Honor. The choir and music was faultless a he Sweet voices the singers arose and fell with a tender pathos that would move even a heart Stone into life and rapture. Heaven has bestowed upon miss Marie Lacoste one its choicest blessings in the gift a magnificent voice which has been Well cultivated and used to advantage. It seemed tame yesterday when i was in the Church As if the heavenly Host had poured Down a divine influence to suit Boti the Day and hour. Father Conner gave a touching and eloquent Sermon the very Best in be heard for years. He echoed my sentiments exactly when he said a that when we lose our loved ones and the grave hides them from our mortal sight forever what Comfort would we have if it were not for the consolations religion and the Hope immortality beyond the i know that personally i would not care to live one hour if it were not for this blessed Hope and that thought that when this earthly bitter strife is Over something better is beyond the grave to recompense us for All the trials and sorrows this transient life. If i had not been so financially stranded i would like to have attended the exercises at the Casino Hall but i live in Hopes a better Day. I would like to Tell my countrymen tile land league that i would like to join their society if women Are allowed to enter their sacred precincts. I have lived in this City nearly two years but in be never yet received a favor from a brother irishman. In be found my Best friends and patrons among americans and germans. There Are hosts Irish who Are ashamed to own their blood and ancestry and it was perfectly ridiculous to see outsiders and negroes a wearing Green a which made our country a Emblem a mockery and a delusion. It was a precious Good thing when i walked up main Street that i Wasny to my countryman John l. Sullivan if i was some those jiving trifling darkies would have seen a a stars that were not celestial. If every Man Irish blood would be honest and True and not ashamed his race we would be More United and have a better influence than we have at present. The Mere fact that Ireland is ground under the Heel the English oppressor is no reason Why her sons in free America should not be proud their race and ancestry.
