The Millican Riot-- Lieutenant Green, United States Army, through whose efforts, says the Brenham Banner, "the incipient riot was quelled," informs that paper that the number killed, as near as he could learn, was seven blacks: no white man killed or wounded. The first reports of the killing were greatly exagerated.

The negroes collected were some 500 strong. The Banner reiterates, on the best testimony, that the negro whose supposed death the mob intended to avenge, is "now alive and well in Washington county", near where the riot was inaugurated. --[Galveston News.
