Military Arrests. *
We announced last week that at the
time of going to press, the troop of caval
ry were on the Western side of the Coun
ty, making arrests. The first exploit of
the command was the capture of Mr. T.
M. Sanders, whom they found at tlie
house of his father-in-law, Mr. A. T.
Walker. Mr. Sanders had been in town
every day for a week previous to his ar
rest, and could have been captured at any
time. The effect, though, would not have
been so dramatic as dragging him out at
.I o'clock in the morning and taking him
along as a prisoner of war. Tlie company
returned lroui this raid on Thursday
morning, bringing with them, besides Mr.
Sanders, Mr. T. T.Castles, Richard Woods,
Wm. McCollum, Martin Wade, Thomas
A. Anderson, James Darby and Joseph
Sims. Mr. Sims was released after a few
hours in jail, it appearing that he had been
arrested by mistake. Messrs. Woods, Mc
Collum and Wade were kept at head
quarters under guard ail day, but were
ftnally discharged on their parole, after
having been subjected to the accustomed
inquisition. Mr. William Leckie was ar
rested on Wednesday of last week, and
kept in jail till Saturday, when he was re
leased on bail. On Thursday night, an
other raid was made by the cavalry ir. the
Turkey Creek neighborhood, and the fol
lowing persons captured : J. D. Smarr, S.
Howell, M. Good, John Jones, John Mc
Carley, J. T. Love. Lee Gaston and Amos
Scaife, colored. About, the same time, a
detachment from York arrested and carri
ed to the jail at that place Mr. J. M.
Kirkpatrick and his brother, John Kirk
patrick. During the week.. Mr. Baxter
Crosbv was arrested near Landsford ami
lodged in the jail at this place.
Mr. J. T. Walker was arrested in Co
lumbia on Friday last, and released on
bail. m On Tuesday of this week, Mr. T.
- M. ?randers was allowed to give boil, and
was discharged. All the rest of the un
fortunate prisoners are still in jail..
it is proper to state that all the arrest?
wercmade by the military authorities with
out anv pretence of acting as an auxiliary
to the tjnited States Marshal. There was
neither Commissioner nor Marshal here.
The arrests, however, were made on war
rants issued by Commiss'oner Porteus,
when hero last December.
These are times when wc are all at the
mercy of arbitrary power, and it, proba

speak with bated breath. Tint every

persecution, it is hardly necessary for us

and tragic story, of recent real occurrence
in thiacity, came yesterday tc our knowl

persons, who have already su Tered sutii

' widow lady, in poor condition, and be
longing to the laboring class, whose house
was brightened by two young daughters,
to whom sho was much attached. Both
of them, though warned by their mother
against the danger and evil of sin, and
guarded by her with every precaution,
were betrayed, and deserted ti: e ways and
walks of virtue. In the first week of this
month the fruits of their folly were almost
simultaneously borne, and the fact of their
shame became generally known, almost
breaking the hearts of their mother and a

Standing by the Graves of Calhoun,
McDuffie and Pickens.
Senator Wilson of Massachusetts, gen
erally known as tho "Natick Shoema
ker," m ide a big speech lately at' Straf
fi>rd in New Hampsliire, upon the reta
tions of tho Republican party to the la
boring classes. This speech was nothing
more nor less than a terrible farrago of
abuse against Southern white people.
This is a specimen :
"In emancipating these fourahdahali'
million of* black men and women wc
struck down the power of ino owners of
working men and working women in
this country forever. They made labor
dishonorable in eight hundred thousand
square milos of the United States, in tito
sunny South as they were wont to call it.
Laboring men from abroad would not go
th ure to toil ; northern laboring ' men
would not go there to live : they would
not stand by the side ol' thc fettered bond
men where* labor was dishonored. But
by the steady, persistent adherence to
principle of the men trained in tho faith
of opposition to slavery, who now stand*
in the ranks of the Republican party, all
tltis is changed, so to-day tho laboring
men ol' New England can stand up in
South Carolina by thograves of Calhoun,
of McDuffie, ol' Pickens, of tho leaders
ol' the slave power, who proclaimed l'rec
societv a failure-that free men and wo
men when they emerged from bondage
into freedom were classed in four subdi
visions, "the hireling, the beggar, thief,
and the prostitute"-and "lookup and
bc proud in the midst of their toil." We
have made labor honorable, even in tito
rico swamps of the Carolinas and Geor
gia; we have taken the brand of dishonor
from the brow of labor throughout thc
country ; and in doing that grand work
we have done more for labor, for the hon
or and dignity of laboring men, than
was ever achieved by all the parties that
nroso in the country from the timo the
Pilgrims put their 'feet upon Plymouth
Rock up to the year lSOO.'*. ,
Now as to the wretched Northern ad
venturers who have .-flooded the South
since tho war, standing by the graves of
Calhoun, MeDuflle, and Pickens, ?nd
looking up and being proud in thc midst
of their toil, that is all vulgar and dis
honest bos': In thc pestilent old shoema

decidedly in the negative. The Fri

signed his former place in Hie arni}-, ye
wc arc not prepared for and will rcsis
any attempt of placing him at the h cai

ness, persist in,, his re-election, and b;
this rend the Republican party asunder
they must not blame us if wo flo no
follow their dangerous and anti-Repub

length and with ability in favor of the
one-term principle. It says the party ii
power has " played out" as regards ideas
and-that persons and personalities have
usurped their phu:o. It says further:
"We shall not, antler any circumstances,

of the ablest German papers in this State,
is suggestive of the change that la going

SOUTHERN SKCURITIES.-TIIO New York

The Southern State bonds were fairly
active for thc North and South Carolinas,

exceptionally steady, and even firm, but
the others were heavy, and in sonio in
stances weak. The Virginia deferred
bonds dropped to lf>i on tho action of the
Legislature in repudiating them, al
though the Bill has not been signed by
the Governor, and may yet be defeated.
Tho South Carolinas were lower all
around, the old bonds falling off em tho
belief that with tho validating law there
can bo in future no discrimination in their
favor as against the new bonds, so far ak
they are an obligation upon tho State.
