ALABAMA has just taken ar - State census,
-and-reports a-total - population of 945,244,
Whereof 442 445 ire blgelcs. In 1860, she
hail 964,296, of, whom 435132 were slaves.
It is evident' that her bleak inhabitants
are just about At numerous AS in 1860. while
her - whitea are but 20,000 fewer. We infer
from this that the . Southern States have
generally nearly if not q&te as manyin
habitants now as in 1850, and will have
more in 1870. The stories that the blanks
are "dying out" seem to'be baseless. A
good many of them have migrated north-
ward or bean taken to Texas ; but they
will number at least 4,000,000 in 1870. •
• Tug question of the Sen;torial emcees

The !natty thonsand workingmen who

policy of that holy, avonle time to reflect
on the 'wisdom of their course. It is cer
tain that at least - one-third, if indeed not
a lrirzer proportion of that class wbo en
voted, are now out of employment, and it
is equally sate that the retention of those
who have something to 'do is extremely
problematical. The explanation of the
fact that employers are dady discharging

BUT ONE COURSE. -
The wholesale butchery of nearly one
hundred of our soldiers near Fort Phil
Kearney. by. a body of three thousand In
dians, has aroused a general lectung
_horror and stifled the apologies which
many have heretofore been ready to otter
for Indian outrages. None, we - suppose,
will be disposed to question the feet that
these savages are sOmetimes.imposed upi4
by white men. But this circumstance
does not atone for the general insecurity
of travellers who have occasion to cross
the Plains; or who seek to built them
selves a home in the new territories. This
is a matter that cannot 1:e overlooked ;
and the spirit of the savages to seek re
dress indiscriminately for individual cases
of wrong, is feat forming a public opinion
that will be satisfied with nothing short of
Indian extermination, if only that
cure the desired end. The recent massa
cre has probably placed the match to the
magazine, which ha's long been filling with
acts calling for merciless retribution.
Unless all indications are /eceritive, we
will soon te launched into an Indian w.tr
of large dimensions. At its close a new
policrivill_donbtless be inaugurated. -In
stead of - alrowing our whole Western terri
tories to be overrun by these savages,
those that survive the coming contest will
be concentrated within restrict limits and
and forced to remain there. In ease thisis
done, the Indians will .probably prove
their own most efficient exterminators.
Nothing is more certain than that many
of the tribes, if throwri together, will have
a war of their own that will fully enlist all
their belligerent inclinations, and result
in visiting a large share of their blocid=
thirstiness - upon themselves.

farm, and in December 'accompanied him to

Creek, Hicks suggested to him that' he could
get an easier Tieing than working se ;laborer.
and, after some conversation, it sr agreed
that Rush should break int) thi cellar of
Mr. George, Hall, iv North East township, -to
get the butter and meat there. I told him I
had never been in. Hall's cellar, and be said I
could - get in the Elontli window the easiest. I
said, "supposing I get caught at it?" He
said "you musn't get caught shit:" I- said,
"supposing a man should get on top of me I"
He laid, "kill or get killed ;" "now." says

corner near Hall's, and if I wasn't there with
the butter, he was to drive up to the house.

told hor I was going to a husking-bee : then I
went to Mr: Hall's, about 8 o'clock, and broke

parties prior to their separation. After a
full hearing. the Court gavellsagazent that
the. mother should deliver -the child to
the father. ' The Morgantown Poet says :
"It was then a scene occurred that beggars
description. - The mother pressed her in

Her loud sobs and agonizing shrieks sent
such a thrill of sorrow to the hearts of the

can impart. • The husband endeavored to
