icieral 31eade's order, and says
Since the termiination of the war
five ib ite men have been fo'lly assas
siiated within a few mniles of this

arrested. 'The victims were all hlon
est men. 'T'heir fate led to no milita

provoked no eensorship of the press.
The assassination of "loin. G. W.
Ashhurn,"1 in another ttife, has re
minded the District Co n'iaanden r that
under (lie Iteconstruction Act it is his
duty to give protection to person and
property, and moved him to the publi
cation of this order.
If he has the power to give seenrit y
to life, it is to be regretted that it
wa:not long since exercised. A sht

We 'sincerely hope that now he
(Ge neral Meade) has turned his at
tention to an evil that has so long af
flicted this unhappy scotion, he will
not withdraw his hand while a single
"Loyal League" remains to array
race against race and engender colli
sions and lead to violence and blood
shed. We know of the existence of no
other secret political society than this
in the South ; it is this society more
than any other one thing that has lite
