W. K. FOSTER, Editor. Negroes vs. Whites. The negroes of New Orleans seem to have been instigated to provoke fresh difficulties with the whites. Not only have they made disturbances in attempt- ing to force their children into the public schools of the whites, but they enter ice cream saloons and insolently demand to be waited upon like the white ladies and gentlemen, for whose accommodation the establishments are kept. It would appear that some fresh pretext is desired for a collision between the races in that city. It may be, however, that speculation is the only object, as suits are brought against those wh© refuse to comply with the demands of the Fifteenth Amend- ment. The jury in the case of Larieu (negro) vs. Col. Dumonteil, claiming 5,000 dollars damages for not being entertained at the confectionery of the latter, after being locked up all uight failed to agree, and were discharged, It is stated that they stood equally divided, five blacks and one white being for the plaint...

Had a stranger to this country who had read of the Militia Bill been in Belton on last Sunday evening, he cer- tainly would have imagined that the militia were in full blast. There is a negro church in our town, which is the scene of more shooting scrapes and general disorderly conduct than any other place in town—be it grocery, grog-shop or other place which might be supposed to create nuisances. On last Sunday, the big crowd was there as usual, and many of the gallant young bloods who are to be the mili- tia, after a while (may be so), got on a general "bust" and fell out as usual, and " fit "—yes, they exchanged about half a dozen shots, knocked down, " chawed " off ears, cursed and swore, hurrahed, and kicked up a row gen- erally that greatly disturbed the quiet and dignity of what little congrega- tion was left out of the row. We are getting tired of that nuisance, and hope we may n...

From the New Orleans Times. Reorganization of Parties. The last telegram from Washington is to the purport that a Radical cau- cus had been held there for the pur- pose of recommending a general poli- cy for the party in the coming politi- cal campaign, and that after a long discussion, it was deemed wiser to agree upon no policy, but leave the people to find out from the course of their Congressmen what the Radical party have been doing, what it in- tends to do, and what its policy and principles are. This is a valuable admission that Radicalism has got to the end of its tether, that it can no longer bring for- ward any schemes, ideas, or pretexts, to keep its followers together, in har- mony and practical unity. It has fulltiled its destiny. It is now func- tus officio. There is no further use for it. The people are tired and sick of the topics and issues with which it has kept them embroiled for the last ten years. When a party, like a hu- man being, is dead, it should be buried....

eraa The Census of 1870. The ninth census of the United States will be taken under the provi- sions of the act of May 23d 1850, com- mencing the first of this month (June) The assistants are paid as follows: Two cents for every name taken; ten cents for every farm ; fifteen cents for every productive establishment of in- dustry 5 two cents for every dead per- son, and two per cent, of the gross amount of names enumerated for so- cial statistics, and ten cents per mile for travel. It will be seen by the fore- going that the compensation allowed an assistant or enumerator, provided the district allotted to him shall not contain less than 20,000 persons, will be about $600 or more. The United Marshall is forbidden by law to accept any bribe or consid- eration for an appointment of assist- ants, and is liable to a fine of $ 1,000 should he be convicted of so doing. The law provides that each assisant after qualifying, shall perform his du- ties by a personal visit to each dwell- ing-hou...

This bill, if passed without modifica- j tion, establishes mixed schools through- j out North and South. It will probably ! be somewhat changed in its leading fea- j tures before becoming law. ...
