NEGRO REVOLT.––We have a letter of November 2d, from Mr. Graves, a postmaster at Halletsville, Lavaca county, (says the Galveston Civilian of the 11th) in which he says that most of the men implicated by Davidson in the proposed negro stampede, were not found guilty––or at least his testimony was regarded as of no value, from conflicting with his former statements. The parties accused, however, were released on condition that they should leave the county in forty-eight hours. Davidson received one hundred lashes and orders to leave the county in twenty-four hours. One of the parties attempted to be implicated by Davidson, named Heffernan, was not included in the order to leave, and is not suspected. The others were men of doubtful character.
