Bntered upon Ute march, a few curious ur?
chins began to inspect them, and 60on Ihe
news, caught up from the soldierp, spread like
wild-fire that ihe real live Ku-Klux were
marching through the city under guard. A
crowd of blacks soon gathered along the line
if march, and kept following the dreaded Ku
Klux with curious eyes and questions. The
bayonets of the soldiers, however, warned
the dusky ihrong not to be too pressing in
their attentions, and the cortege passed quiet?
ly and silently along without Interruption.
Twenty-four of the prisoners were marched
down MeetiDg and Broad streets, and put
on board the eteamshlp Charleston Just about
to sail for New York. Thence they are to go
to the State prison at Albany, where they will
serve out their various terms of Imprison?

gray hair floated around his shoulders in a
manner to claim the pity and reverence of all
beholders. He is over sixty years of age, is
the head of a large family, and bas been visit?

rive years' imprisonment and one thousand
dollars fine. His name is John W. Mitchell.
