Yazoo Herald.]

While A. T. Morgan, the Radical sheriff of this county, was speaking, Wednesday night, at Wilson's hall, upon political matters, a row occurred between a white man and a negro in regard to something said by the speaker, in which Dick Mitchell, a desperate man and one of the rising luminaries in the Radical firmament was killed by a pistol shot, the ball striking him in the neck and resulting as before stated, fatally - and W. H. Foote, the negro circuit clerk of this county, wounded so severely that his life is despaired of by his physician. Dr. Moore's coat was perforated by a large sized ball, while Mr. Ed. Drenning received a slight wound in the shoulder.
