Capt. Barmlett makes a second report on the Millican affair. It will be remembered that we quoted the other day from a paper which said that if he did not take back his first report, certain disreputable acts of his in connection with the riot would be exposed. He has not taken them back. He corrects his statement about the firing of the first gun, saying that at the time he charged it upon Holiday he had not seen the affidavits of Mayor Wheat and Deputy Sheriff Potilla which were furnished Col. Gentry. Very likely he had not, but he was in constant incercourse with these gentlemen during the whole progress of the riot, and it is impossible to suppose that if they then knew the gun to have been fired by a freedman that they would not have told him so. Either the Captain knew that the first gun was fired by a freedman when the stated that holiday fired it, or he did not believe the statements of the Mayor and Deputy Sheriff, to whose statements he now gives crelence under pressure
