The character of-the extraet above is

The lon. JEFFERoN DAVIS4 the
President of the late Confederate States,
was not a leader of the Oieople, but a
servant, and every persoh in the South,
who aided the rebellion, either directly
or. indirectly, (and the editor of the
Progress is among the class in both in.
stances,) are -as much liable to be taken
up and tried for treason as is the gentle.
man referred to.
The people of the South, those loyal
to the Governtnent of the United States,
watch with deep interest the approach.

earnest, prayer is, that his life may be
spared,-the opinion of the Raleigh

ing. The people of the North as well
as those of the South, and the President
of the United States, must look with
contempt upon the loud-mouthed pro.
testations for the Union of a person who
.was known, as was the editor of the
Progress, to have engaged in the late
civil strife. The administration at
Washington must know, and no doubt
appreciates, the weight of the silent but
true feeling of those at the South, wio
have taken the amnesty oath to
support the Government, while it
must look with doubt' upon those who
are always blating 'abou. tigeir being
such good Union men, as-' Obntinually
as does the editor of the PVogress.
There is not a deeout or respectable
paper in North Carolina but what depre.
cates, wth loathing and contempt, the
attempt upon the part of the Progres to
stir up'animosity and ill-feeling'again in
the South. The course of such'journals
does more to embitter the feelings. and
-senti-neuts of the people of the*South to.
wards a peaceable' redidjustmeuilt of the
Union, than all other combinations put
in f9rce against them, combined.
Though the State Conventina has
convened at Cohumbia, yet moat of our

as beard from, the names 6f those elected

true state of the Icase, as we learn themr
by the afihked. extracts from.the Co

We brand this affair, upoh the state

and diabolical murder, and trust that
the perpetrators of the deed may be
brought to summary punishment. The
troops that were sent into our State to
protect, have done so with a vengeance
in murdering, in cold blood, one who
was within. her limits.
This, though, indeed, is not at all sur

cold blood, a person in our State, be

less full in detail. We doubt nothing orf

'negro troops throughout the State. We
trust that proper steps will be taken, by
the proper authorities, for bringing to'
punis' hment the enactors of this cold
blooded tragedy. We have submitted
the statement to Generql Ames, the
Cominaniing General in this Depart

Croser, late amember of tho. 3rd Ken,.

mand, by, the 3ad colored troops, in
conimavid of Col. Troubridges The facts,
as we hear them are these.: Mr. Oroze-,
long -a prisoner, was just returning to
his home in Texas, and arrived.at this
place sometime in the night of Thurs.
day, and had two youtig ladies ander his
care. A portion of the colored 33d hid
been here several days, waiting for the
romainder, 'which got, here Thursday
eveniig. An obstruction on the track
near the 'depot, supposed to be done by
sotge of these colored troops, threw a
portion of the train off. Leaving the
car for a short time, and returnin'g, Mr.
C. fond a negro soldier in there, in, such
close proximity to the ladies, that he or.
dered him. out, which the.other, in a
most violent manner. refnaed to do. An
altercation ensued, in which thl negro
was cut on the back of the neck. lHe
then feft. Sometime after and while the
cars were being righted, a .squad of qe
glo soldiers came up under a sergeaut,
in search of Croser,- and seizing by mis
