HAVE WE ANY CIVIL LAW
- NORTH-CAROLINA ? '
We had snpnosod that we yet had our
Bill of Rights, our Civil Code and Statute,
and that even in these times of general
demoralization and usurpation they would
protect the .weak 'and helpless non-combatant,
the women and children and de
crepid old agerfrom insult and orttrago ;
but it seems we have been laboring tinder
;i delusion. That rnlcr who makes war
upon the women and children, even of ft
common enemy, ia not only a tyrant but
a brute, but what are we.to think of one
who makes war or allows others to make
war upon his own women and children ?
Over a year ago we urged the Governor,
in these columns, to turn out his whole
militia or as many as might be necessary
to accomplish the' work, and have all the
deserters in the State arrested and retuin
od to the army ; and we insisted that where
militia officers failed in the performance
.f their duty that they bo reduced to the
ranks and conscribed. Had our sugges
tions been then followed we should have
had but little trouble with deserters; they
-onld have been arrested and returned to
the field without taking regnlar troops
from the army to hunt them up, and-now
the State would have been nearly or quite
clear of them ; but our advice was not
heeded, nothing was dono, and during the
whole of the live months of the guberna
torial canvass we heard of no efforts to
gather them in.- We regretted this, for
we desired that all men absent withont
leave fhould be returned to duty, and
hence we hailed the recent action of the
Governor in calling out the Homo Guard
for that purpose, with gratification. Homo
Guard and militia officers whose commis
sions protect them from -service in the
field, should perform this duty cheerfully,
and when they refuse or fail to do it they
should be made to perform it.
We have heard, for several weeks pa3t,
of the arrest and penning of women and
cliil.lren, by the Home Guard officers now
engaged in deaertor-huntije, but treated
it with silence, not bein; disosed to say
anything which might seem to interfere i
with the mam work in hand the arrest of ; Randolph, been arresting and imprisoning,
ritssertcre ; but acconnts of these outrages j helpless women in order to compel them
n tho weak and helpless, now come toii3 i to give information as tofthe whereabouts
in such shape that we can no longer, con- ! of their hnsbandy, brothers, sons or sweet
sistently with our duty as a public journ- ! hearts who are deserters from the army,
aitst, fceep silent. We pu binned tno law, -
passed by the last Legislature, on this
subject, yesterday; Rnd we insist that
wherever persons, male or female, have
been guilty of harboring, or aiding and
abetting . deserters, they be arrested and
tried by the civil tribnnals, and punished
if found gtiiUy ; but in the name of human
ity and civilization we protest against the
wholesale arrest of women and children
which is now going on in various sections
of the State by armed forces, .wider orders
from tho Executive Department. There
is no law to ' authorize it,- and it ia an un
mitigated outrage. It may be said that
these persons, are all lewd and depraved.
Admit it, and yet it doe3 not mitigate the
high-han Jed outrage and thorough disre
gard of civil law. Bnt we are assured
that many of the women thns arrested and
kept for days and weeks under cnard. are
persons of education, position and refine-,
luent many ot whose sons, husbands and
brothers are no doubt now keeping watch
in the trenclios at Petersburg or elsewhere.
"Wo would not shield any giiilty person
from pneh punishment as the law inflicts
lor the punishment of crime, but beyond
the law we would not go.
It is paid Gov. "Vance excuse? himself
by saying his order has been misimder
fitohd. If so why does he not revoke it,
or substitute" another which may be un
derstood Why suffer these arrests to go
on in disregard of all law ? Bnt will ho
allow the order iiudor which his officers
are operating to fee the light, so that tho
people of the State and of tho country
msv iudse for themselves ? If it does o
authorize these arrests we will most cheer-:
fully do him tho justico to publish it, if
furnished with a copy. :
We have heard of delicate ladies ia a
condition to render excitement and expo
sure very dangerous, being dragged from
their homes and kept under guard in the
Home Guard camp for -days nnd weeks;
and others, we are assured, "with stickling
babes havo been treatad in the same way
all the arrests being made because they
were swpected of harboring, or aidingand
abetting deserters. J oath or aflirma
tion; no civil process only -an armed
"iiard anfl the arrests made on suspicion,
Sy the order of Gov. Yauee ! This is a
practical suspension of the writ of habeas
corpus without action of Congress.
These high-handed proceedings lave no
parallel in the history tbis .iv TJ&
Yankees have warred ofc o&r women wd
children, and all gop,d ieiy .everywhere,
hate and loathe thedS for it1; ut ti iisf the
first instance in which any public lunc
tionary, civil or military, has warred, on
his own women and children. Sherman's
brutal order expelling women and children
from Atlanta robs themdnly of thoir
homes and property ; but here women and
children are deprived of their liberty -and
subjected to "tortnre" without the shadow
of law 6r, authority for the proceeding.
To those prominent citizens who are now
writing. to us from different counties about
these outrages, we Jiave no answer to
make. We and our friends are powerless.
Bayonets ruled in North-Carolina in Au
gust, and they rule now, and we only re
member the healthful operations of the
civil law asamong therubbish of the past
an indistinct dream or a half forgotten
nursery tale. . Our friends will remember,
however, what wo predicted relative to &
reign of terror in the event of certain
things happening, and do us the justice to
concede that all. which we prophesied and
more, ha9 come to pass, and that much
sooner than wo supposed or predicted.
We will Bay no more atpresent, but the
following letter from a Western county
will show that we have abundant material'
at hand to call forth the remarks we have
made. The writer is no imaginary char
acter, and he makes no request as to se
crecy. He is a gentleman of high char
acter, and when tho General Assembly
meets we trust that his voice will be rais
ed in that body in defence of the -weak
against the strong in favor of civil law
and personal liberty against usurpers and
tyrants. We append'his letter aud ask
for it a careful pernsal :
Mb. Editob : Every true friend of Civ
il Liberty, everywhere, in" Europe or
America, how looks upon "the torture
as the foulest stain bit ancient Jurispru
dence. Kiug James II, of England, has
obtained an immorality of infamy for the
use of which ho made of it during his ad
ministration in Scotland previous to his
accession to tho English throne. He in
flicted upon' all Stato prisoners, or those,
whom ho suspected of being privy to any
cunspiracv against the government, all the
horrible "and exquisite tortures of which
the rack, the bo6t and the thumb-screw
were capable. Jn England this horrid sys
tem never obtained the sanction-of law or
prescription, let during tno woist uaya
of the Tndors and Stuarts it va occasion
ally inflicted upon the Stato criminals in
the tower. The tact that it was thus used
has ever been deplored by all wise and
virtnous Englishnieu, being regarded by
them as one of the darkest stains upon
their country's history. The glorious rev
olution of 163S rid England and Scotland
of this foul excresccnco forever. It is
never mentioned there now but with ab
horrence, and no one supposed that it
would ever again by revived by the Anglo-Saxon
race in any part of the world.
But in this they were greatly mistaken.
This relic of barbarism has again, in tho
high noon of tho 19ta century, been in
troduced into Conservative and liberty
loving North-Cr.rolina, and that, too, it is
. said, by order of Gov. Vance. It has not
only been introduced in Nwrth-Carolina,
but it has been -introduced in a far worse
form than it ever existed in England and
or "Scotland, for it has beeu done under
the auspices of the military authorities' of
, the 'State. For the last three or four weeks
.; the militia or Home Guard have been
! hunting deserters in the Counties of For-
( syth, Randolph, Davidson, and perhaps
! others, bv order of Gov. Vance, and have,
especially in the counties of Davidson and
1 endeavoring to force them to. do by lor-
tare what it is in many instances impossi
ble for them to do. This they say they do
by order of Gov. Vance, who hag promis
ed "to stand between them and all dam
ages." I obtained my information from
an intelligent Justice of the Peace, him
self engaged in the business, who assured i
rV tr 11... 1 1 I
me tnat uov. v ancenau given sucu oruer,
and used the precise language qnoted
above. -The order has been vigorously
execated, and women, it is said, who were'
in that situation in which they are enti
tled to be treated with peculiar tenderness,
have been arrested with others. In some
instances thirty or forty of them have been
huddled together in an old school house
and kepj; guarded for several days.
Harboring deserters is undoubtedly a
crime, but not one of those great State
crimes which the torture was used to dis
close in England and. Scotland several cen
turies ago. If there is evidence to impli
cate any parties in the crime-of harboring
deserters 'let them be arrested at once
upon-; a warrant issned by a magistrate,
and bound over to answer for-the crime
beforo the proper tribunal, or be commit
ted. And, above all, let the Grand Jurors
do their duty. In one of the above na
med conn ties.! (know that the Grand Jury,
at tho last term of the Superior Court
made the most .dHligent inquiry and in
dicted all against ,whom . evidenue could
be found. This is the only mode by which
crime can be ptinished in "North-Carolina, I
and he who attempts to pnnisli it in any
other .way commits a grave crime himself.
This is the course to winch Gov. Vanco is
himself pledged. friends claim that
he Uypar ezceiUenM, the champion of civil
liberty of the supremacy of the civil over
the military Jaw yet .thesp' proceedings'
are a most outrageous violation ef the civil
law, and in fact establish thereapreaiacyof
the military over it.
For the credit aad fair fame of tho good
old North State, I hope Gov. Wanee has
beeii inisunderatood. . Bii'fc- titat soeins to
lie impoibIe.:as several of Jiis officers
who are engaged in executing, the order,

Bnt what most astonishes me is, that
6uch an order ever should have been obey
ed, especially, by. that large number of the
militia and Home Guard who are Justices
of the Peace. By SO doing they not only I
virtually abandoned their civil functions,
but actually assisted the military in usurp
ing them. Of what avail are the civil
courts, when -the Justices composing them
thus allow themselves to be made the in
struments of their overthrow 1 If, as a
Justice of tho Peace, I had been liable to
militia or Home- Guard dnry, and had
obeyed such an order, I should feel that 1
had disgraced my. magisterial robes, and
deserved to be impeached. . I would have
submitted to all and more than all the tor
tures which they inflicted upon their
helpless female victims, before I would, in
obedience to an usurped authority, have
aided in striking a fatal blow at the Con
stitution and liberties of my State, and my
owji civil functions. If information had
been laid betbre me on the oath of a re
spectable informant, that any parties wero
guilty of tho crime of harboring deserters,
1 would have issued my warrant " to any
constable or other lawful officer," to arrest
the parties, and would have bound them
over, committed or discharged them, ac
cording to the evidence elicited on an in
vestigation. More than this I never wonld
have done, and I hope that this is all that
Gov. V ance ever intended by his order,
but then he should hq,ve addressed it to his
vivif and not his military office8. This I
would have done to bring tho party to
justice : but what makes these arrests par
' ticalarly disgraceful is that their purpose
Snch proceedings are a sad commentary
upon tne degeueracv ot the times, iiie
fact that they are tamely submitted to,
proves that our people havo lost that spirit
of liberty which animated their ancestors
that they are even now subjugated and
ready to obey the edicts ot a despot, and
if so, for what is this struggle continued ?

There never was a greater unanimity in a coun

Mr. Lincoln , completely paralyzed this generous

South that slavery should be protected. He has
built up for the Sou Lb a strength which otherwise
they would have never attained ; and this has given

We find the following in tba Rochester Union,
and ia aroine the rounds of the cooDerhead" 'fcress :
"PENDLETON IS A BLOOUKD MAIN, BfiUMU
DESCENDED FROM A GOQD. FAMILY, AND,
HAVING NOT ONLY THE EDUCATION AND
MANNERS OF A GENTLEMAN, BUT THE HE
REDITARY CHARACTERISTICS ALSO."
From a speech of Gen. Leslie Combs, a Kentucky.
delegate to the Chicago Convention, the same paper
- also quotes this :
" More than eighteen hundred years ago, Rome
was governed by three men in the end of that Re-
. public. One was Augustus Caesar, another Mark
Antony, and the other a. noble Roman. THEY
WERE ALL OF NOBLE BLOOD. And we, too,
have our triumvirate Lincoln. Stanton and Hal-
leek: bat, unfortunately. NEITHER OF THEM
CAN BOAST A VERY HIGH DESCENT;." (A
laugh.) . ;
After the Baltimore nominations were made, this
- same spirit of upstart aristocracy manifested itself
in the well Known comments of the World, the lead
ing Democratic organ of the country, upon thecon-
. didates presented. Lest our readers may have for
- eotten those comments, we append them :
"The only merit we can discover in this Baltimore
.ticket is the merit of consistency; it is all oft piece;.

A KAIL SPLITTING BUFFOON AND A BOORISH TAILOB,
both from the backwoods, both growing up in un

gogue, liypcrbolus. JSiutivilie Union lotA.
uuk uvtt. it matters not waat our sphere in
life may be we have grave responsibilities to dis
charge, whether in camp or at home a soldier,
or a citizen we cannot ignora the obligation due
to each other as members of the same society. The
times demand tno exercise of every virtue that
adorns tne cnnstian cnaracter. Wherever we turn
our eyes, objects of deep soliVa& await our care.

A kind word, a tender expression of sympathy.
or a cheerful smile, in their despair, may cause the
disconsolate to look up again, as the perishing flow
er iroin tne summer aroutn, tbrougu dew and rain,
with welcome to the sky. An act of kindness on
our pari may 00 a nine tningk but we should re
member that to the cneerlcss heart It bears a bles
sing that may last through life. A time like this
demands the exercise of the purest virtues aud the

orower, weary witn tne buraen of bis woes, is fa nt-

iiauuns 10 ir. cringes Adams, wno tells tutui that
tneir lasto lor sugar is something more than a mere
appetite. In a recent paper on the " uses of sugar
iu n,ung assimilation ot lood, be says : " 1 know
by experience the difference in nutritious effect pro
duced by the flesh of tired cattle on a march, and
those slain in a condit?fe arising from abundant
food and exercise. In former case any amount
nngni oe eaten wunout tne 6atislacuou of hunger,
while in the latter a smaller amount removed
hunger. But I discovered that certain other food
of a different quality, such as grapo, sugar and
fruit, would help tired meat to assimi.ate and thus
to remove hunger.
Puddings and fruit tarts are not, therefore, sim
ply flatteries of the palate, but digestive aeuu:
provided, always," they are not themselves made of
reoeuiously indigestible materials. Tne reviewer-
alludes to the fondness of the artisans for confec
tionery, and of patients just discharged from the hos
pitals at king for "sweets" in preference to "good,
and substantial food," as examples of a. correct in
stance. There is no doubt but that in children, in
whom the reqnlrments of erowth call for a ranid
and efficrent transformation" of food info tissue, the
uenian a lor sweets is very imperious ; and parents
should understand that the jam pot will dimmish
tne butcher a bill and increase the amount of nutri
tion extracted from beef and mutton. Louitville
Letters to Pbisokbrs. We are reo nested bv an

These have been often published ; but some persons
