The grand jury of York County have thor?
oughly investigated the circumstances con?
nected with the alleged Eu-Kluz outrages,
and devoted eight days of their time to the
subject. Upon the testimony elicited some
few persons have been presented for indict?
ment, in pursuance of which, on motion of |
Solicitor Brawler, the following order was |
It is ordered that the clerk of the court do
issue bench warrants for the arrest of all par?
ties charged therein with the commission of j
crime and misdemeanors, and also for the ai?
rest of all witnesses named therein, s nd that
said clerk do bind over said witnesses to ap?
pear at the next term of this court; that the
8heriffof York County do proceed to execute
said warrants, and if the parties therein named
have fled from or reside beyond the limits of
this county, that the bench warrants for them
or any of them be forwarded to the sheriffs of
any and every county in this State where such
persons reside or may be found.
The presentment as published in the York
ville Enquirer, so far as it relates to the Ku
Elux, is as follows :
lu reference to the special charge of your
Honor, relating to information furnished Hon.
^John Scott, chairman of Congressional inves?
tigating committee, relative to outrages said
to have been recently committed in this coun?
ty br organized bands of men, we report Mat
we have given the matters therein mentioned
nu investigation, occupying over a week's
time ol our present session. The charges ol'
violence emanated, it ls ?aid, from Hon. A. S.
Wallace and Colonel Lewis Merrill, command
mandant of this post. Your grand jury bad
these persons summoned before them, and
found, upon examination, that neiiAer of tliem
teere able to state any facts from individual
The Hun. A. S. Wallace stated that he had
reported a school-house burned In Fairfield
County, but gave no information as to a school
house having been burned in York County;
and if such a crime has been commute*! any?
where in the county we have failed to obtain
the slightest evidence of the fact, even by
hearsay or otherwise, from a large number ot
witnesses examined, representing all sections
o? the county.
Colonel Merrill furnished your grand Jury
with the names of a large number o? witness?
es, whom, lt was state.1, could give us the
requisite Information as to the outrages and
violence asserted In the communication o?
Senator Scott to the President to have been
cfinmlued in this county. The witnesses
named were summoned, and all whom the
sheriff was able to serve attended and gave
their evidence. From that evidence we have
been able to gather the following facts:
1. A school-house In Bethel township was
pulled down about a year since, by parties un?
known to any of the witnesses. It has been
p illed or thrown down twice since that time,
oy parties unknown to the witnesses. From
the testimony taken, we arrive at the conclu?
sion that the misdemeanor was the result ot ri?
valry between factions of two rival teachers,
who had solicited the occupancy of the build-,
lng from the school trustees.
2. lu Di.liock'o Creek township, on the ninth
of September, instant, three men passed by the
house of one W. J. Wilson and tired orr ? pis?
tol, and used boisterous and profane language.
?. They were not disguised; and Mr. Wilson recog
Pnized. by the sound ol meir voices, two oct ot
the three persons-Mack Sandlin and Sherrod
?Childers. We herewith present the said Mack
Sandlin and Sherrod Childers for riot, and sug?
gest that proper proceedings be commenced
against them by the solicitor ot the circuit.
3. Two colored persona-Wash Coulter and
Abram Choat-state that a short lime since
several persons came to their house In disguise
and chunked them. No other testimony could
be furnished by them as to this affair, and
they could not distinguish the persons of any
of Hie party alleged to have assaulted them.
4. Some time in August last, one Neal
Glenn (colored) was assaulted at his house by
Giles Crawford and George Leslie, (colored)
who called him out of his residence and com- j
milted a battery upon brm and cut him twice
with a knife. A warrant of arrest was sued
out against the offenders, but they had fled L.
into Non h Carolina before lt could be ex- '
ecuied. Thi3 affair was reported tons asa
Ku-Klux vuirage of aggravated violence.
These are the only acts of the violation of 11
the peace of which we have been able to obtain '1
ana ?vidence, as having occurred since the /?rs?
of July last.
Several acts of violence, accompanied by
crime, ate leporied aa having occurred in the
early part ot ihe year. Among these there
was a rutd made upon the office ot the county !
treasurer, one E. M. Rose, on the 26th of Feb- '
mary last. One James B. Porter, who was '
present, represents that there were a number !
of persons in disguise engaged In the raid; 1
that a whipping was administered lo him, and j
that he recognized by their voices and man
ners Lawson Armstrong and Pinckney Cald?
well, citizens ol this county, as members of E
the party. We herewith present the same J
for the action of the law officer of the court. '
None others of the parly have been recog- (
nlzed. Some damage to the building occurred;
a quantity ot liquor belonging to D. S. Russell
& Co. wan destroyed; but so far as we can
ascertain, the funds ot ihe office were not in?
One Henry Latham (colored) represents that
he was whipped at some period of the present
year by a number of persona of whom he re?
cognized three, viz : tf. A. Black, James Sher
rer and Dock Sherrer. He recognized Black,
because ^e is left handed, and the man who
whipped ulm was a left-handed man. He knew
Sherrer by the first finger of ihe right band
being off. We present the said persons for in?
dictment upon the testimony of the witness
a.??e call ihe altention of the solicitor to evi?
dence herewith appended, relative to the mur?
der of one Anderson Brown, in January last
We do not regard the evidence of Wesley Thom
asson-the only Important witness-os suffici?
ently definite to warrant us in presenting at
present, for prosecution, the names of any
Your grand Jury bave also inquired into the
murder ot one Jim Williams (colored,) occur?
ring In March last. Such evidence as we have
been able to discover in this case is herewith
appended, lor the information of the civil offi?
cers of the State. We do not regard it as suf?
ficiently definite to authorize any special pre?
sentment from us.
We have also examined such witnesses as
we could obtain, or whose names were repoit
ed, in reference to a homicide commuted
upon ihe body of Thomas Roundtree, (color?
ed,) in the fall of 1870. Three witnesses sum?
moned in this case are reported absent, and
were not served with summons. Such evi?
dence as we have been able to obtain ls here?
with appended for any future use. We re?
gard it as insufficient for the purposes of mak?
ing a special presentment.
From evidence taken and appended, we pre?
sent Isom Buchanan, (colored,) for arson, in
the burning ot the barn of one Hiram Thomas
son, in this county, In January last, upon the
evidence of Anthony Blalock and Eveline Bla
lock. The evidence also Implicates other par?
ties in the crime, but we do not regard lt as
sufficient to warrant any special presentment
Evidence in other cases of misdemeanor has
been sought for, and some of a contradictory
and uncertain character presented. Your
grand Jury have simply appended the evidence
taken in all such cases reported, for the future
use ot the civil officers of the State.
Information was furnished the grand Jury
by Major Merrill to the effect that six persons
bad recently been whipped in the southeast?
ern part of this county. After a careful ex?
amination of the facts, we ascertain Uiat no
such outrage occurred in this county. The
Officer alluded to as making the report ex?
presses himself as satisfied as to his mistake,
arid proffers to correct any erroneous report
of the affair lhat may have emanated from
Ali cf which is respectfully submitted.

[From tue Loa loa Graphic]
There are few of us who have not had the
experience of a Barmecide feast some time in
our lives; who have not known what It was to
be invited to an apparently substantial repast,
to find when the covers were removed that
the thing was a mere sham-that no strong
meats smoked on the cold and empty board,
no fruits gave sweetness and pleasantness and
the pertection of finish to the nobler and more
important tood, no wine gladdened the heart
and brightened the eye, nut that it was all
only a name, a pretence, a make-believe, a
Barmecide least, feeding and refreshing no
How many marriages are Barmecide feasts,
think you ? Promises of love and loveliness
and tender sympathies that are never fulfilled;
promises of sweetness and good temper that
lade away into nothing, like a golden cloud
at sunrise; promises of contented happiness
and ecstatic joy that are as real as the spark?
ling wine, the luxurious fruits, ot the Barme?
cide's table. She has lair hair and blue eyes,
a trim waist and arched Instep, small hands,
and half-moons to her filbert-snaped nails. Sbe
smiles when you speak to her, and has a ready
blush; and she looks shamefaced and pretty
when she blushes. She is not opinionated,
and she glances continually at mamma when
she talks, and seldom looks you tull in the
face. She ls just eighteen, and you adore her.
You see tn her the outline of every nobleness,
of every virtue, that a woman can possess.
You grant that as yet, by reason of her youth,
all these graces are only potential, not ac?
tive; but you believe, nevertheless, and belief
for the time does as well as proof; and you
marry your angel, never thinking that she will
prove your Barmecide. Time goes on. The
bride becomes the wife, the girl the woman.
The nature which was no more set or consoli?
dated when you concluded that it held the
germ of every virtue under heaven, than ls a
hazel nut in June, slowly develops itself In Its
owu way. The virgin timidity which so en?
chanted you, becomes matronly indecision,
and a mental weakness of will bordering on
Imbecility; or it crystallizes Into a narrow posi?
tiveness, so that you might as well try to melt
the snows of Mont Blanc as bend or mellow it.
The ready blush which once betokened such
sweet sensibility hardens Into callous opposi?
tion, or deepens into passionate irritation; the
girl you loved and the woman you have mar?
ried, are as different as is the Olympian Hebe
from an apple-woman In the street; the prom?
ise by which you were taken prisoner was but
a Barmecide feast, and you sit at the banquet
of your marriage with empty dishes and long?
ing eyes, pondering and regretting.
You make a new friend. You have had good
friends in your lifetime, but you have never
had one equal to this for fervor ot affection,
lavishness of demonstration, affluence of prom?
ise. You have been a self-sustaining kind ol'
person hitherto, but perhaps you have been
hardly hit ot late, wounded in the fight, wrung
in the withers, and your new trlend with his
offers of help comes in opportunely. Rest on
me, he eays, with lnnnite generosity and aa
expansive manner; and you lake him at his
word. You do rest ou him. Perhaps it ls no
great favor after all that you ask of him; be
that as it may, you ask something. Your
trlend, who has offered all and promised every?
thing, proves of ihe Barmecide class when put
io the proof. He fails you utterly In the sim?
plest as in the most Important matter. He In?
vited you to sit at his table and nourish your?
self on the strong meats he had in store; but
when you lilted the covers you beheld nothing?
ness, and jon were fain to content yourself
with empty dishes and unsatisfied desires. K?;
can do nothing tor you. It may be will, or lt
maybe power, that fails him; either be has
miscalculated hts influence with others, or he
haa exaggerated his unselfish Interest In you.
Whatever the cause, there ls the result; the
staff you lent on isa broken reed, and the rich
badquet of active friendship to which your host
invited you is a sham wherein Iles no crumb
of comfort or support.
Barmecidal, too, are many books. They
open with a tine flourish, promising instruc?
tion or entertainment according to the plan on
which they are construed. You alt down lo
your intellectual banquet full of cheerful hope;
but you find nothing set forth for your suste?
nance. Your spirit-stirring melody turns out
to be a meaningless word echoing through a
deserted palace-a feast ot empty covers, giv?
ing no food whereby your soul can be nourish?
ed and made strong. The entertaining story
that began with the sparkle of a well-packed
rocket, ends in the dreary descent of a charred
stick. The treatise that prefaces its essential
remaiksby a sweeping assertion respecting the
utter worthlessness ol every other work that
bas hitherto been published on the subject, ?
prepares you for new lights on a dark matter,
md a straight cut out of a tangled jungle.
But you find as you go deeper and tare lurther
that your auihor knows no more of the matter
in band t: an the most pntiquated of his prede?
cessors. He has no new light; he makes no
new cut, short or long; he ts the showman ot
i dissolving view, the Amphytrion of a Barme- 1
:lde least; and you are really the poorer for '
rotir lost faiih, and the time wasted in a hope '
-bat had no fulfilment for its answer.
And as with books, so with certain natures. !
fou are acquainted with people who, you are 1
iure, would exactly ault such and such posl- j
lions, do such and such work, perform auch
ind such (.Jtles. You use all your influence,
ind you place them where you tnlnk them just 1
ii ted. square pegs in square holes, and round
>egs In round holes. But here, too. your least 1
las been Barmecidal, and your proteges, Irora ?
vhorj while still uutrled you boped so much,
ire quite emptj dishes when disclosed. The
jower of mind, the quickness of perception, i
he business facility, the very moral rectitude <
>n which you had counted, aud for which you |
md refused others, are myths; and you realize ?
i disappointment where others suffer as well i
is yourself. How many lallnres of thia kind |
he world has io count ! How many lost lead?
ers ot thought and progress, so brilliant in
heir promise, so disappointing in their result,
lave been just Barmecides, with whom ls no '
ood of life, no sustaining element! Again, how 1
>ften we find our own work, our so-called good '
brtune, Barmecidal. We have something given 1
is that we fondly believe will make aman of us,
low on the spot. We have long been in
iroubled waters; surely the tide will turn now 1
-the currents run smooth-and our i.issed
ind damaged ship come into safe harbor at '
asl! surely our hunger will be appeased at the
banquet lo which we are bidden, and we shall '
<now the meaning and the savour of good ?
hing*! We accept ihe situation offered, and !
we find it richer in promise than fulfilment. '
[t ls a Barmecidal (east, and we starve at the
able which assumed to be a table ot plenty. '
The editorship which was to be such inalgnifi- '
:ant work and such princely pay-well, that 1
tutorship! The adjectives and nouns have !
>een strangely Jumbled somehow, and we (ind '
t on ihe trial to be such very poor pay and 1
mch a very great ?Seal of work, that we caa (
?elther make up by a supplement nor !
Ive on the original. That station out in 1
Urica-lt was to have all sorts of valu- j
ible contingencies, and the climate was
exceptionally healthy. When we get there J
ve find a swamp where the population is deci- j
nated by yellow fever, and the valuable con- \
ingencles resolve themselves into native j
rading-buying Ivory, for which there is no j
narket, by consignments of second-hand
:lothe8, which the noble savage will not wear. 1
ill sorts of appointments are in like manuer ?
barmecidal; aud often when the world con?
gratulates a man on his good luck, and as- ,
mmes that his fortune is made off hand, the 1
ruth is that ihe whole thing is a sham and a 1
iretence, that there ia no good luck in the .
natter, but, on the contrary, bad, seeing that
bis dead body of a thing, this Barmecidal
rhost, stops the way against something bet- :
er and mure sincere.

neut and help he trusted so to act as to merit
.heir continued approbation. Much alarm and
?neasiness had been manifested in certain
piarters about the results to flow from the
it-liberations of this convention, but knowing
hose who were here os well as he did, he had
iot entertained those fears. It they were
lovices, if they had never felt the waves rock

Reporter says : "The name of the negro man
killed tn the upper part of this county on Tues?
day ot last week was Tltolly McElhaney, and
the name of the murderer was James Bethney.
We say murderer, because, from all the Infor?
mation we have been able to gather In refer?
ence to the case, lt was a wutul and deliberate
murder, without a bingle mitigating circum?
stance. Bethney made lils escape immediately,
and has not since been seen. He ls a mere boy,
only seventeen years of age, and has been In
this country about two years. He came from
Mississippi, and, In all probability, is working
his way to that State. The facts elicited by
the Jury of Inquest, were substantially the
same as those given by us last week. Imme?

Justice Brawley Issued a warrant lor the ar?

Messrs. T. N. Bennett and T. M. Sanders for
execution. They summoned to their assist

scoured Hie county duringAhe whole night,
but failed lo apprehend the murderer. They

SEWARD'S RETURX FR03I HIS TOUR
ROURD THE WORLD.
Mayor Hall Liming lils Senses-Wast,
the Wonderful < n ric n t u ri g 1- .Tad ge
Barnard In a New Role-The Negroes
In Opposition to Greeley-A Shabby
[PROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.]
NEW YORK, October 4.
The arrival of Mr. Seward from his voyage
round the world ls duly chronicled this morn?
ing. He came over In the same steamer with
the-emlnent Dr. Selwyn, Bishop ot Litchfield,
In England, and Commodore Ashbury, the rep?
resentative of the English yacht clubs. Mr.
Seward looks bright, bis face has lost none of
its ruddiness, and bis mind is as clear as ever,
but he ls a physical wreck. He is weak In the
legs, and his arms are so badly paralyzed that
he has to be fed by his attendants. And yet
the plucky old politician, though just back
from a fairney seldom undertaken by young
and vigorous men, contemplates ano;ber long
voyage down the South American coast as far
as Cape Horn. The nature of his malady is
such that he is better while on the wing than
resting at Auburn. He sojourns a few days at
tbe seat of his nephew on the Hudson, and
then goes home to Auburn for a short stay.
Mayor Hall began a raid on obnoxious news?
papers last Saturday. It is now reported that
he la going to do the foolish thin; of trying to
suppress Harper's paper, which publishes
those terrible caricatures, oy Nast, of his
Honor and the other members of the ring.
The paper in question, under the management
of George William Curtis, ls about as unfair
and bigoted os a Radical sheet could well be,
but Mr. Hall would only proclaim his own
sensitiveness and advertise his revilers by at?
tempting to suppress lt as "libellous and Inde?
It waa a clever stroke of policy on the part
of the Radicals in hiring the pencil of Thomas
Nast. He is the greatest ol' American carica?
turists, and some of bis work is really won?
derful. Leech is the only modern English
artist who could be com;...red with him,
but Leech's satire vas good humored,
while Nast's ls malignant. His personal feel?
ings enter Into the pictorial war on Tammany.
He held a sinecure position In the city, from
which he was removed some time since. He
bas avenged himself fearfully, tor he has
made the whole country familiar with distort?
ed representations of the four men most
prominent in city politic.-; Sweeny, with his
nair awry. Connolly sleek and rubicund, Hall
with those dreadful uoggles on his eyes, and
Tweed with an enormous paunch, a blazing
diamond in his shirt front, and a face In which
cunning is legible in every wrinkle. Going
Into thousands of families, these caricatures
arc so many weekly sermons against the men
who cut off Nast's raflons at the comptroller's
Judge Barnard has certainly taken a "new
departure." His open affiliation with a great
railroad corporation here laid him under the
ban for a long time, and when Parton and
John Quincy Adams's clever brother Henry
wrote notable articles for the reviews on the
corrupt Judiciary of New York everybody
knew that it was Barnard whom their shads
were principally aimed at. The Judge, ot
course, resented the imputations with a great
deal ot vehemence, and was not without de?
fenders among the purest of his brethren at
the bar. Ever since the municipal troubles,
however, he has taken such high grounds in
favor of official purity that he has won the re?
luctant commendation even of the Times,
which hos been bis bitterest newspaper enemy.
His charge to the grand jury yesterday ls the
most vigorous pronunciamento against rascal?
ity and corruption In every shape that we have
ever had from the bench in this city. He de?
clared his intention to break up the usuren?,
the emigrant swindles, the baggage smashers,
the publishers and sellers ot Indecent news
?apera, the violators of the liquor law, the
olders ol sinecure offices In the municipal
departments, and the repeaters at election?.
He promised to keep open court on election
day, sitting os a magistrate to Issue warrants
for the arrest of Illegal voters. As to the sine?
curist, Judge Barnard expressed the extraor?
dinary opinion that "nearly all the fast horses
and last women In the City of New York are
supported out of the city treasury." These
leeches are quite as much ot' Fepubllcan oe
Democratic origin, tor at least half of them
have been hanging on to the treasury ever
since the time 01 the Republican commissions.
They will be rather astonished if they lind
they will have to go to work for a living.
A curious feature of the war between the
Radical factions in this city ls the bitter oppo?
sition of the negroes to the Greeley wing.
The negroes are clannish here as they are else?
where, and have an unaccountable way ol'
going together in a body In political malters,
and generally of consorting with the worst
white reen they can find. In New York they
side en masse with the corrupt customhouse
gang led by Tom Murphy in the interest of
tirant. Last evening they had a meeting tn
one of the assembly districts for the express
purpose of vituperating Horace Greeley, the
founder ol the parly which they claim so much
affection for. It was enodgh that be hated
Murphy, and despised Grant, to justify them,
according to their Ideas, in bating and de?
spising him. Rev. Dr. Garnett, the great col?
ored light in theological matters, made a
speech. In which he used so many profane ex?
pressions about H. O. that another reverend
brother bolted with his lingers In his ears.
Some enterprising (?) genius has g?lten up
what he calls a "Fete Champ?tre," at West
Flushing, Long Island, near the city, and has
advertised It extensively in the newspapers
and on the lences. He inveigled the ladies
connected willi the Union Home and School
for Soldiers' and Sailors' Orphans Into an en?
dorsement ot the scheme, on a promise ot a
division of the proceeds. The festivities, which
are to continue two weeks, are rather unique.
Leslie, the successor of Blond?n, performs on
the tight rope, a Senoretta Cosetta dances in
costume, a battery of the First Division N. G.
N. Y. S. fires a salute, and then there are a
drumming match, a four mile walking match,
a hopping match one mile against time, a horse
race, and'cavalry and infantry evolutions by
the militia. Notwithstanding the manifold at?
tractions, the fetes have been a failure so far.
The audience on the first day consisted of only
filly gaping rustics. NYM.
THE CHARLOTTE ARD AUGUSTA RAIL'
[From the Chester Reporter.]
It ls doubtless known to our readers that an
association of capitalists have been lor some
time engaged in buying up the capital stock
of this road. They have succeeded in securing
stock enough to give them a controlling influ?
ence in its management, and at a recent meet?
ing ol' the directors, Mr. W. T. Walters, of
Baltimore, the representative of the said ring,
was elected a director. It is understood that
lhere will soon be a complete change in the
administration of the road, the new s.ockhold
ers having it in their power to call a meeting
and make a new election at any time. Ches?
ter certainly has no cause to be opposed to

The Mountaineer ol Wendeaday says: "In
conversing with intelligent gentlemen from
the country, we ure convinced that Greenville
County will not realize more than halt a crop,
and may be less."
The Enquirer ot Wednesday says: "We have
been informed that during the past week frost
has been observed la several sections of this
county, in the vicinity ot streams and on the
low lands. Vegetation, however, has been but
little Injured, although the visit ls about ten
days earlier in the season than usual."
The Press of Wednesday says: "The crops
are turning out rather belier than was expect?
ed some lime since. The corn crops are better
than they were last year, and probably will be
sufficient for our necessities. The cotton will
be short, but with the prospect of good prices,
and the lessened expenditure ol lost year,

THE GREAT CONUNDRUM,
How Mach Cotton will be faade thia
The Montgomery Advertiser, replying edito?
rially to an inquiring correspondent, says :
The conclusion forced upon us by the tacts
may be stated In a few words, viz : that the
cotton crop of this year will bear about the
same proportion to the crop of last year that
eleven bears to twenty, and that the grand ag
eregate will not exceed 2,420,000 bales. If
the cotton receipts at Macon, Columbus and
Montgomery could be regarded os accu?
rate indices to the extent of the Incom?
ing crop, our estimate of 2,420,000 bales
would have to "roost a little lower." But the
crops ot Arkansas and Texas are a shade bet?
ter than ours, and we have put that fact in the
balance as a counterpoise to the inference
growing out ol the manifest failure ol the Ala?
bama and Georgia fields to produce thus far
fifty per cent, of"the cotton in 1871 that they
yielded In 1870. If the general yield of the
South averaged no more than Georgia and
Alabama we should have an aggregate of
2.190.000 bales as the crop of 1871. But allow?
ing 230,000 bales for the superior crone of more
favored sections (over and above the average
shown by ours) we have 2,420.000 bales or
eleven this year where lhere were twenty last
NEGRO DEBTS AGAIN.
[From the Greenville Mountaineer.)
At the lost term of the Court of Common
Pleas tor this county, the question of negro
debls was brought directly before the court.
Suit had been brought upon a note, which was
shown by the evidence to have been given In
fart for the purchase money of a negro slave,
n charging the Jury his Honor Judge Orr
stated that when elected to office he had taken
an oath to support the Constitution of this
State; that a clause of that constitution ex?
pressly forbade the collection of debts, the
consideration of which was the purchase
money of a slave or slaves; that In his opinion
this clause waa not inconsistent with any
portion I of the Constitution of the United
States, which also be had sworn to support,
and that, therefore, he was constrained by the
oath which he had taken to charge them that
they could not, consistently with law, find a
verdict for that portion of the debt which was
for a slave. He stated that be had a distin?
guished preeedent In disregarding the late de?
cision of the Supreme Court of this State de?
claring such debts collectable. That Judge
Earle, in the case of the State vs. McBride, and
upon somewhat similar grounds, had refused
to regard a decision of the then Supreme
Court, and had been sustained by the remod?
elled Supreme Court which heard the case on
appeal. The Jury were out but a few minutes,
and in their verdict ignored the negro part ol
the debt. We do not know whether an appeal
will be taken or not.
