Swear them all.--J. M. Martin, a school-teacher by profession, and a native of Pennsylvania, Mr. Zeitzman, a German who taught music, and a Mr. Sabin, a Yankee trafficker, have been compelled to leave Hinds county, Miss. Suspicious-looking characters of every description — blue-skinned Yankees who are trading South on Black Republican capital, and making quarterly dividends in aid of the Lincolnite Abolitionists, living in Yankee-land, should be made to kiss the book in token of allegiance to the Government. And after they have taken the oath, they should be watched more closely than ever, for they are especially tricky people.--N. O. Delta.

Affray. --A difficulty occurred at the University of Mississippi, last week, between two students from Hinds co., named Watkins and Miller. Watkins fired six shots at Miller, four of which took effect, doing some very serious damage, but did not prove fatal. Miller fired one shot at Watkins, but missed his aim. The difficulty originated in a ball-room, about a misunderstanding with a young lady, whom both the young gentlemen claimed as a partner for a set.

Hugh McDaniel --Capt. A. G. Brown relates an incident connected with the fight at Leesburg, which as it concerns a man born and raised in Hinds county, we take pleasure in recording. At one time during the battle, Hugh McDaniel, who is a very large and powerful man, found himself in the vicinity of two Yankees whom he determined to capture. Holding his musket in his right hand, he attempted with his left to collar the one nearest to him. Yankee resisted, and Hugh, unwilling to lose a load of powder, let drive with his naked feet and knocked him down. The other Yankee, not relishing the prostrating power of the Mississippian's arm broke to run; when some ten or fifteen steps distant, McDaniel threw his gun muzzle foremost, at him, driving the bayonet entirely through his body, killing him instantly. We mention this incident with the more pleasure from the fact that McDaniel's mother is a poor widow, and has five sons (her all) in the army of the Confederacy.-- Jackson
