An Emeute in Raleigh--two Newspaper Offices mobbed.
--Some soldiers of Bennings
's brigade, apparently led by officers, mobbed the Standard
newspaper office last night about 10 o'clock, destroying the furniture and throwing the types in the street.
They also destroyed a lot of State printing, &c.
reached the spot after the work of destruction was nearly over, and addressed the crowd, begging them to desist.
He rebuked them for the act, telling them that no such example had been set in Lincoln
The soldiers cheered Governor Vance
and dispersed at one o'clock, and left the city.
The building and power press of the office were not damaged, and Mr. Holden
will resume the publication of the Standard
in a few days.
This morning, about 7 o'clock, some one rung the town bell, and a crowd of citizens gathered and rushed upon the State Journal
office, turning the contents into the streets, breaking up furniture, &c. The Mayor
was sent for, but arrived too late to stop the mob. Gov. Vance
was sent for, and made another speech.
The crowd dispersed, and all is quiet now. No further deeds of violence need be feared from the citizens if the soldiers are restrained, but any further such demonstrations by them will cause another outbreak, and there is no telling where it will end.
[The State Journal,
which is mentioned in the above report, is a loyal Southern paper, which has been most determined in denouncing the treacherous course of the Standard.
It is to this fact, doubtless, that it owes the demolition of its types, &c., by the supporters of that sheet.
It is stated that Holden
, the proprietor of the Standard,
was in Petersburg, Va.
, at the time of the occurrence.]
