General Massacre of Negroes at Millican.


We learn through the Houston papers there there was a fearful slaughtering of the colored poeople in and around Millican, on the 15th and 16th. The number killed is variously estimated from fifteen to fifty. It is impossible to arrive at the true cause of the difficulty from any report we have yet seen. We hope to be able to throw some light on the subject to-morrow.
