How Justice 1? Admlnistered-The Char?

Trying a Case-Malicious Imprison?
There is needed a broom both long and
strong to sweep out the stables of South Car?
olina Radicalism. No sooner is one crime ex?
posed than another demands attention; no
sooner is one instance of Radical ignorance
in high planes brought to light than a new
batch require to be pnt on exhibition. Gov?
ernors, Congressmen, Judges, State legisla
tora and census-takers have had their turn,
and now a colored magistrate comes to judg?
WHO ANO WHAt HB IS 1
Aaron Logan is a colored man, abont twen?
ty-eight years of age, and black as the ace of
spades. There ia an oiliness in his manner
which ls very taking on first acquaintance,
and as he has a good memory and can spout
constitutions and orations by the hour, he is
a small deity among the negroes in St.
Thomas' and the adjoining pariahes. There
he is Sir Oracle, and rales the colored
people with autocratic sway; not in the in?
terests of peace, but for the purpose of ex?
citing an eternal round of anger and irrita?
tion. One page in his history is his conduct
when commissioner of registration in the fall
of 1869. Then, by bis incendiary langnage
and con Juc t, he drove the colore d people into
open riot; so much so that troops were sent by
General Clitz to Mount Pleasant to quiet the
disturbance. Not long afterward h? was guilty
of a small-sized villany for which be was
IMPRISONED Iii FOET MACON,
Where he amused himself by breaking stones.
The why and wherefore are these: Logan ar?
rested a gentleman named Fraser on the
charge that he bad prevented tho negroes
from voting. At night Mr. Fraser was dragged
by a squad of armed negroes across the coun?
try to Charleston, being taken off the road
here and there by his captors to be exhibited
to the negroes on the different places near to
which they passed. As soon as the party
reached Charleston Mr. Fraser was released,
but we do not know that he has yet recovered
from the fatigues of that fearful night. Logan
TRIED BY MILITARY COMMISSION
And sentenced to two years' imprisonment,
which afterward was commuted to six months.
This term he passod in Fort Macon, as already
stated. Logan would have been in the Legis?
lature, bat for his imprisonment. The jail and
the gallows in this way reduce the supply of
raw material in a very unwarrantable manner.
We are also told that Logan bought a tract
of land which bo was to hold in trust for some
colored people. Bnt Logan was s barp. He
had the titles .drawn in his own nome, and now
this very land is soon to bo sold by the shojiff
for Logan's private debts. The deluded colored
people will, we fear, have no redress.
THE 5EXT CAPER.
Logan was quiet for awhile, and being an
eminently proper person, was appointed a ma?
gistrate. Then, indeed, he had the parish un?
der his control, as soon bec une evident. Fre?
quently he gathers the colorad people in crowds
af four hundred and fy'o hundred, whom he en?
tertains with bis denunciation of the whites,
in fact, he bas had his own way in everything.
Some time ago Mr. L. P.'Smith, a pTttuter in
Christ Church Parish, had some trouble with
i negro woman named Hannah Deveanx, which
inded in Hannah being charged with assault
ind battery. The case was tried before Magis
rate Lucas, and the woman committed in do
'anlt of bail. Logan then took the matt er in
land, sued ont a writ of habeas corpus, when
io one knew what was going on, and set Han
THE NEXT DEVILTRY.
In Jnly last a colored mau went to Mr. L.
?. Smith, who was then on hts plantation, and
laid be had orders to arrest him. Mr. Smith
isked what his warrant was. The colored man
mawed that "he did not know what the war
ant was," but he would go and find out. No
.hing more was heard of the affair until Thurs
lay last, when it came to a head.
FOUR NEOROES ARREST A WHITE MAN.
On the previous night (Wednesday) four
urned negroes arrested George Brown, a ser?
rant of Mr. Smith's, on tho public highway, say
ng that they had orders from Magistrate Logan
io ascertain thc business of every ODO whom
ihey saw. Brown told them where be was go?
ng, and was taken under guard to his destina
:ion. What was the purpose ot these armed
nen, in prowling at night around Mr. Smith's
plantation, can easily be guessed by the light
>f subsequent events. On the following morn?
ing, the same fonr negroes, armed to Ito teeth,
urea ted Mr. Smith and took him before Logan,
who waa nine miles off.
A KEG BO MAGISTRATE.
When Logan had finished his breakfast, he
trent into the room where Mr. Smith was.
LOGAN (to Mr. Smith.) "Take yonr hat off. *
Mr. SMITH. "YOU have net opened your
?oort, and there is no necessity to do what
Looa* (savagely.) "You had better I"
Some time passed and Logan gave no sign
>f bearing the case. Ur Smith then told
Logan that he would waive an examination,
ind give bail to appear for trial. Logai re?
plied th it ho would not take bail, and would
sxamine the case himself. There was nothing
to do but awai t thx pleasure of this negro
magistrate, and sevtjfehours later the prosecu
trix, Hannah Deveaux, came. Logan then
ope ed a book, read a statement previously
made by the proseoutnx, und asked her
whether that was what she swore to. Of
?ourse she said yes, tbe charge being assault
and battery. Logan next asked Mr Smith if
tie bad any witnesses. Air. Smith said that
whenever the case was properly heard, so that
tie might know the ovidence and cross-exam?
ine the witnesses, be would give his testi?
Loo AN. "Have yon anything to soy?"

COMMITTED FOB CONTEMPT.
It was Logan's evident desire to send Mr.
Smith to Jail, bot be promptly gave bail. When
Jae recognizances were signed, Logan said to
Hr. Smith, "J will comma you Co jail for con
ernpi of cowrl." Logan dtew np the commit?
ment, imposing a fine of $10 and 24 hour's im?
prisonment. Mr Smith asked to be allowed
to get a change of cloth tog. Thia was refused,
and the prisoner was brought to Charleston
and carried to jail by Logan's negro guard
Mr. Smith at oooe sued out a warrant against
Logan for false imprisonment and official mis?
conduct, and the case will be beard on Wed?

gistrate arrests a Northern white man, allons

him to jail for "contempt of court." What this
"contempt'' was, wo do not know. The only
crime that Mr. Smith committed, that we see,
is i bat he did not take off bis bat until the
court opened. And for this, twenty-four hours

A SHOOTING SCRAPE NEILB HAMB?BO.-T'ae
Augusta Chronicle of yesterday says that a
shooting scrape occurred near Hamborg on
Saturday afternoon between two young meD,
John Henry Key, Jr., and Freeman Powell, in
which the former received a pistol bati'in his
left ankle, which passed between the bone and
tendons without serious injury, the wounded
man being able to walk abont the atre?ta after
the occurrence. The difficulty, as we under?
stand it, is of rather a mysterious nature, the
parties baring previously been friendly. Key,
as we learn, had walked down the railroad and
joined company with Powell, when the latter
urged the former to go home with him. Key
declined, when Powell proposed to shoot him if
he did not. Key treated the threat with indif?
ference, not believing it uttered in earnest; but
P?well put it in execution, firing three shots,
oue of which took effect BB above noted, and
then fled, not affording Key an opportunity to
recover from his surprise and retaliate, lhere
aie one or two constables in Hamburg at pre?
sent, from Edgefield Courthouse, who are re?
ported to be in pursuit of Powell for an as?
sault made on Woolly, the tax collector, in
which the latter is said to have suffered a loss
of two or three lingua denials from a blow in
THE BOAT RACE.-By half-past five o'clock
Saturday afternoou, quite a large number of
ladies and gentlemen had assembled on the
Battery, to witness the proposed race batween
thc boats Oriole and Blacksnake. Tbero was a
stiff breeza blowing and a heavy sea rolling,
and it was generally balieved that the boars
would be unable to pull over the course marked
out, viz : from the White Point buoy to a point
three quarters of a milo distant off the Battery,
to be marked by tho boat Louly. Yet the crews
determined to ascertain for themselves, and a
little before six pulled out towards the buoy,
but wore soon convinced that it was almost
impossible to have the race as designed, and,
at the suggestion of the judges, concluded to
have the race up tho river, and accordingly
rowed to Chisolm'a mill. Their destination
was unknown to the assemblage on the Batte?
ry, and the report being circulated that the
race was postponed, the. people, about half.
past six o'clock, dispersed.
The boats reached the mill abont six o'clock,
and the judges, Captain James Fraser, start?
ing judge for thc Oriole, and Mr. L. Chisolm
for the Blacksnake; Messrs. F. J. Porcher, W.
O. DeSaussure and J. F. Mathewos, deciding
judges, agreed that the raes should bc from
Cbisolm's wharf to a point marked by tbo Lou?
ly, just beyond the Now Bridge, the distance
being about a mile, ft was also decided that
as the Blacksnake bad only six oars, while
her opponent had eight, she should be allowed
The crews were: Mr. John W.Lewis, Jr.,
coxswain; D. D. Parker, etroke; William G.
Webb, R, M. Means, J. P. DeSauusare, H. N.
Parker, J. H. Boper, H. A. DeSaussure, J. R.
Matbewes, of the Oriole. William Como, cox
swain; H. B. Bull, stroke; George Edwards, N.
Simons, H. B. Simons, G. C. Gaillard, W. A.
Pringle, of the Blacksnake.
Shortly after six o'clock the signal to start
was given by the firing of a pistol. The Oriole
made ajmf length at the first jump, and con
tinned to gain. When half way she waa about
six lengths ahead, and at the terminus was
nearly one hundred yards in advance. The
time made was: Oriole, 6 miuutea 15 seconds;
Blacksnake, 7 minutes and 10 seconds, the
Oriole winning by 49 seconds.
There were very few spectators, and conse?
quently tbero was not as much excitement as
at the late international race, but still there
was considerable excitement and enjoyment to
tboso who were present. We hope that the
race will be repeated at an early day.

The Pilotage Question.
TO THE EDITOR OP THE NEW3.
We had no intention of c dorine- into a news?
paper controversy witu tho newly appointed
pilote-our end having boon answered when
we gave their nam*, a to the public. The mer?
chants and mariners of Charleston can readily
discover the soi t of merit and capacity possess?
ed by these men if they choose further to in?
We saw cards fros four of them in your jour?
nal of the 2d instant, which would have been
noticed sooner but for more important engage
The first is from Edward Jenkins, a colored
man, who very properly heads the list, as his
race is now in the ascendant. Wo feel very
charitable towards Jenkins, and have no pre?
judice against him on account of his color; we
would rather oncoorage bim than otherwise.
He is civil, and we honestly believe ia the best
pilot of the four-so let Jenkins pass.
The next card is from Frederick Fisher. We
retract nothing we said of this "young min" ot
twenty-two years. Wa still regard bim as en?
tirely incompetent to discharge the duties of a
pilot. He attempts to make capital out of hia
youth, but we grieve to say this gives no prom?
ise for the future. His communication com?
pels us to say tba: from our knowledge of his
mental capacity ho is not likely to improve
either by age or exp::ienoe.
Charles Camps comes text. As regards the
dogree of liability to be attached lo bis many
statements, it is only necessary for us to ask ft
ho can deny that it was proved in evidonce be?
fore the United States Court that he obtained
his license by frau'i and misrepresentation
and that it waa subsequently taken from him?
Can be deny that it also caine out in evidence
that he hau purloined money from a shipmate,
which has never yet been recovered from him
aa far as our knowledge goea?
We have also the testimony of two responsi?
ble merchants and a retired shipmustcrof thia
port, that tho captain of tho brig Hampden
stated iu their preuenoe that Camps, when on
board of their brig os pilot, requested the cap?
tain to take command and bring his vessel to.
for the purpose of b.?ing boarded bv tho nort
physician, an I that tho captain judged him
incompetent to have charge of his vessel.
The next and last card is from Mr Henry
Rahtert. Our reply to him is brief. What
vessel was he ever put aboard of when be was
with the old pilote ? We know of but one, and
who waa inaide the bar sud safo enough to ba
managed by any "greenhorn." If we mistake
not, be was twice discharged, from two different
boats, for neglect of du. y.
lo conclusion, we say that we have been as
lenient towards these men as the character of
their pubhahe 1 cards would permit us to be,
and disclaiming all malice, we design to drop
the 8Ubjecr ; but if provoked into further con?
troversy, which we will try to avoid, they will
find we have left many truths untold which it
would bo lesa agreeable for them to bear, than
for us to utter. Wo are, OLD PILOTS.
