Official Paper for Jackson 4 Joseph ine Conni ics.
DECEMBER 25. 1874.
For the past week we have been
receiving accounts by telegraph of
rioting and bloodshed in the Southern
States. Armed hands of negroes at
tacked the city.of Vicksburg, says the
Mercury, in the vain effort to reinstate
a defaulting colored Sheriff. A largo I
number of blacks and several whites
lost their li^es in the conflict which
ensued. And now comes the report
from Louisiana of trouble in that I
State, on account of false returns by
the Returning Board. One account I
has it that Kellogg has threatened
that the streets of New Orleans shall
run with blood. The condition of the
South is truly deplorable, while with a
tyrannical and usurping Republican ele
ment in the ascendancy in the general
government and thieving carpet-bag
gers in possession of the State gov
ernment, both charged with the mis
sion of enforcing the outrageous re
construction lavs, their condition is
pitiable. They being powerless in the
hands of their oppressors, it is not to
be wondered at that they at times l>e-
come frantic, and turn upon their op
pressors, with an avenging hand. But
we trust that more peaceful days are
approaching for them, when the Ti
mocracy shall supersede the present cor
rupt party in power.

position creates an important trust in behalf
of the Public Library and the ticket holders
of the fifth gift concert. The Public Library
of Kentucky and tlie ticket-holders are
jointly interested in tho amount of the
drawing. The larger the fund to be distrib
uted in gifts the greater will be the gifts
awarded to each lucky ticket-holder and
the more the amount realized by the Libra
ry. To have a full drawing is so manifestly
to the interest of those interested that, rather
than have a fractional drawing on the 30th
inst., I deem it true to the trust confided to
me by the ticket-holders and the Public Li
brary of Kentucky, that a short postpone
ment be made to enable me to dispose of the
unsold tickets an<l have a full drawing.
Though the very large amount now in bank
would enable us to distribute handsome
gitV. vet we should feel disappointed^ this,
our last concert, should we be compelled to
make a fractional drawing, however large.
We have received so very large a number
of letters from all parts of the coun
try from those most largely interested, urg
ing a postponement if all the tickets be not
sold by the 30th, that we feel strengthened
in our sense of duty to the ticket-holders
and the Public Library, to make the post
ponement. Under these circumstances, we
have determined in the interests of all par
ties to postpone the concert and drawing to
Saturday, February 27, 1874, at which time
the drawing will positively take place, and
as a guarantee of good faith towards ticket
holders, we pledge ourselves to refund any
ticket-holder his money, upon presentation
of his ticket, should the drawing fail to come
off at the day now fixed. The past, we feel
assured, will be sufficient guarantee to all
interested that they will be fairly and hon
estly dealt with. Tho money paid for tick
ets is sacredly preserved against all contin
gencies until after the payment of tho gifts,
after which the expenses are to be reim
