AUGUSTA, GA., Sept. 21.—A fearful riot
occurred at Camilla, the seat of Mitchell
county, Ga., last Saturday. The following
particulars have been telegraphed from
Bainbridge, twenty-four miles from the
scene of riot :
Prince, the radical nominee for Congress.
and Murphy, ex-Bureau agent, with about
two,hundred negroes, armed and equipped,
started on Friday for Camilla, with ihree
weeks provisions and boxes- of new arms
and,accoutrements, their intention being to
overawe the citizens. Before starting some
friendly .negro exposed the plans, and a
.daegro courier was dispatched to Camilla to
ihferm the citizens what was going on. A
deputation of three prominent citizens
met the. mob at a church live miles from
the tower:.. The Governor's proclamation
forhidding armed organizations was read.
Tho mob paid - -no attention to it and de
termined to march on. Again the dep
titation remonstrated entreating the
negroes to come in without arms ai.d they
should not be molested. Their efforts were
fruitless to, dissuade the negroes, and the
mob marched into the town with banners
flying and drums beating. They now num
bered four hundred, many having joined
them on the route. The mob halted and
-clamored for a man named Johns. Johns,
in company ' with Dr. Twilty, pre
sented hfinself, when a hundred guns
were levelled at them. The former,
being intoxicated, fired, and the riot
commenced, tht' mob firing at every one
they could see. The citizens, white and
colored, rallied, gathering about fifty stand
of arms. The mob was s igorotisly attacked
and driven back, and, becoming panic
stricken, took to flight. The negroeS were
pursued five miles, losing five killed and
many wounded. Their total loss, so far as
ascertained will be from seventy-five
to one hundred in killed and wounded,
owing to the panic among the mob. Only
live whites were severely wounded. The
colored citizens of the town are reported to
h ive rallied promptly with the whites in
defeatitig the mob. T stores and muni
tions of Ihe latter were he
captured. At last
accounts Camilla was quiet.
AUOUSTA, GA., September 21.—News of
the riot at Camilla caused some excitement
here. It is known that the negroes are
armed throughout the S ate, but the whites
hatte no serious fears of a disturbance, if
the negroes are not precipitated into riots
through pernicious counsels and violent ap
peals to their passions.
