The Millican Riot Once More.
Sheriff Neil publishes a very lengthy statement of he Millica riot, all of which might have been compressed into a sixth part of the space he occupies. His effort is to prove that the negroes fired the first gun, and that Capt. (R)and(l)ett was drunk, and that Brooks was specially commissioned by Hamilton & Caldwell to get up the riot for the effect it would have on the mission to Washington. As he (...)vers that this is his opinion, we must credit him with speaking the truth. But we doubt whether there is another man, woman or child (...) Texas so easily gulled as to believe this last statement.
