Smith, Haskin S.; Miscegenation

Text Item Type Metadata


[From the Natchez Democrat.

We hear from Port Gibson that that village has been ever since last Thursday in a perfect uproar of excitement over a case of miscegenation. It seems that a negro named Haskin Smith, formerly a waiter in the Gibson House, but now a legislator, married a Miss Helen Smith, white, daughter of the proprietor of the hotel. The young lady's father and friends have threatened to make short work of Haskin Smith if he came back to Port Gibson; and, on the other hand, some of the colord people swear they will burn the town down if any harm is done him. Mean time the bride and groom are parading the streets of Vicksburg as man and wife.
