[SPECIAL TKLBGRAM TO THE KBVS.]
WASHINGTON, Friday, March 22.
The United States Supreme Court was oc?
cupied to-day lu hearing the argument of
Messrs. Johnson and S tan bery in favor of a
mo: Ion cf writs of habeas coi pus and cer?
tiorari in the case of E. Jefferson Greer, one
of the Ku-Klux prisoners, whom the United
States Circuit Court at Columbia had refused
to discharge upon a writ of habeas corpus.
In this way the counsel for the prisoners,
having failed in their appeal from the deci?
sion of the Circuit Court In the matter ot
quashing the Indictment, hoped still to bring
the enforcement or Eu-Eluz law before the
Supreme Court upon its merits.
liie motion was opposed by Attorney-Gene:
rarWilllams and Solicitor-General Bristow on
grounds similar to those taken by the Govern?
ment in the case o? the United States vs/
It may be predicted in this case, as in that,
of Avery, that the motion will be . denied.
The decision of the court will be delivered on
Monday, to which day the court adjourned.
It is stated bj gentlemen who are entirely
conversant with the whole subject that these
cases have not been skilfully handled on the
side ol the defendants. As an evidence of bad
management the fact ls cited that Messrs.
Johnson and S tanberry relied mainly, for car?
rying their point with the court, upon the
provisions of the statute of 1867, which statute
waa repealed by Congress pending the de?
cision of the McArdle case. C urious as this
fact may appear, lt ls undoubtedly as stated;

much sarcastic comment in administrative
THE ABBEST8 IN CHESTER COUNTY.
The Chester Reporter furnishes the following
details of the recent arrests in Chester Coun?
ty, already briefly reported io TETE NEWS :
We announced last week that at the time of
going to press the troop ot cavalry were on
the western Bide of the county making arrests.
The first exploit of the command was the cap?
ture of Mr. T. M. Sanders, whom they found
at the bouse of his father-in-law, Mr. A. T.
Waiker. Mr. Sanders had been in town every
day for a week previous to his arrest, and
could bave been captured at any time. The
effect, though, would not b?ve'been so dra?
matic as dragging him out at one o'clock In
the"1''morning and laklDg bim along BB a pris?
oner of war. The company returned lrom
this raid on Thursday morning bringing with
them, besides Mr. Sanders. Mr. T. T. Castles,
Richard Woods, Wm. McCollum, Martin Wade,
Thomas A. Anderdon, James Darby and
Joseph Sims. Mr. Sims was released alter a
few hours In jail, it appearing that be bad
been arrested by mls'ake. Messrs. Woods,
McCollum and Wade were kept at headquar?
ters under guard all day, but were Anally dis?
charged on their parol-*, after having been
subjected to the accustomed inquisition. Mr.
Winiam Leckie was arrested on Wednesdey
of last week and kept In Jail till Saturday,
when be was released on ball. On Thursday
night another raid was made by the cavalry
In the Turkey Creek neighborhood, and the
lo Ho wi og persons captured: J. D. Sui arr. S.
Howell, M. Good, John Jones. John McCarley,
J. T. Love, Lee Gaston and Ames Seal fe,
colored. About the same time a detachment
from York arrested and curried to Jail at that
place Mr. J. M. Kirkpatrick and his brother,
John Kirkpatrick. During the week Mr
Baxter Crosby was arrested near La od sf o rd
and lodged in the jail at this place.
Mr. J. T. Walker was arrested in Columbia
on Friday last, and released on ball. On Tues?
day of this week Mr. T. M. Sanders was allow?
ed to give bail, and was discharged. All the
rest ot the unfortunate prisoners are still In
It ls proper to state tbat all the arrests were
made by the m HDary authorities'without any
pretence of acting aa an auxiliary to the Unl
. ted States marsha). There was neither com?
missioner nor-marshal here. The arrests, how?
ever, were made on warrants issued by Com?
missioner Porteous when here lan December.
These are times when we are all at the mercy
of arbitrary power, aud it, probably, therefore
would be wise for us to speak with tated
breath. 1 bat every feeling ot our heart is In
.deepest sympathy with these unfortunate vic?
tims of political persecution, lt ls hardly nec?

THE AIKEN PEACHES.
What la Said About Them-The Fruit

AIKEN, March 20.
A gentleman remarked In my hearing re?
cently "that he had never eaten a peach-in
a pie, canned, preserved or In any way, ex?
cepting as he plucked it from the tree. That
he had eaten them in Delaware, Jersey, Long
Island and the We3t, but that he must admit
that the Aiken peach was far superior in flavor
to any that he had before tasted," and I be?
lieve that it ls generally conceded by all Im?
partial judges that lt is the most delicately
flavored fruit sent to market. Mr. Furguson,
of Furguson & Lott, New Tork, who handle a
greater portion of the fruit shipped from this
section, says: "Aiken peaches always com?
mand the very best price In this market." Mr.
James Purvis, who has. been shipping fruit
for twenty years, and who owns the largest
orchard but one in the South, is quite san?
guine of a good crop. He thinks, if we can
Eass Easter without a killing frost, it ls safe,
ast year the bearing was immense, but the
Incessant rains in the spring seriously affected
the irult, causing lt to be Juicy to the exclu?
sion of sacc nari ne matter, consequently lt was
almost an Impossibility to place the fruit at
the North In perfect condition, lt lacking the
eleme .t ot preservation in so great a degree.
The trees are not yet in bloom, with the ex?
ception of the honey peach, which ls of no
value for exportation, and which is in blos
?som, usually, two weeks before any other
.variety. So that lt is very probable that we
shall nave not only a fair crop, but one that
will prove remunerative to the grower?.

THE HALF-BREED OUTLAW.
Physique anet Personal Appearance
A Walking Arsenal-Characteristics
Thc Outlaw's Wife.
The following detaliB in regard to the
famous North Carolina outlaw, from the Lum
berton correspondence of the New York Her?
ald, although, doubtless, somewhat over?
drawn and sensational, will be read with In?
terest at tbls time:
DESCRIPTION OP HENRY BERRY LOWERY.
Henry Berry Lowery, the leader of the most
formidable band ot outk rs, considering the
smallness of .it numbers, that bas been known
in thlB country, ls of mixed Tuscarora, mulat?
to and wblte blood, twenty-six years of age,
five feet nine locheB blgb, and weighing about
one hundred and fl fry pounds. He has straight
black bair, like an Indian; a dark goatee, and
a beard graceful lu shape, but too thin to look
very black. His face slopes from the cheek
bones to the tip of bis goatee, so as to give
him the Southern american contour of
physiognomy; but lt ls lighted with eyes of
a different color-eyes of a grayish hazel-at
times appearing light blue, with a drop of
brown In them; but In agitation dilating, dark?
ening, and, although never quite losing the
appearance ol a smile, yet In action it ls a
smile of devilish nature. His forehead Is good
and his face and expression refined-remark?
ably so, considering his mixed race, want of
> education and long career of lawlessness. A
scar of crescent shape and black color Hes in
tbe skin below bis left eye, Eald to have been
made by an Iron pot falling upon him when a
child. His voice ls sweet and plea' ant, and
in nts manner there ls nothing self-important
or swaggering. He is not talkative, listens
quietly, and searches out whoever is speak?
ing to him like a man Illiterate In all books.
The color ot his skin ls of a whitish yellow
sort, with an admixture of copper-such a
skin a?, for the nature ot Its components, ls in
color indescribable, there being no negro
blood in lt except that of a far remote genera?
tion of mulatto, and the Indian still apparent.
It Is enough to say of his skin that lt seems
to suffer little change by heat or cold, expo?
sure or sickness, good bousing or wild weath?
er. The vely rf latives of white men killed by
Henry Berrfr Lowery admit? ed to me that "He
ls one of tho handsomest mulattoes you ever
To match this face, the outlaw's body ls of
mixed Btrength and beauty. It is well-knit,
wiry, straight in the shoulders and limbs,
without a physical flaw In lt, and, as one said
to me who had known bim well since child?
hood, "He ls like a trap ball, elastic all over."
He has feet which would be noticeable any?
where, pointed and with arching Instep, so
that he can wear a very shapely boot, and his
extremities, like his features, Indicate nothing
of the negro. A good chest, long bones, sup?
pleness, proportion, make his walk and form
pleading to see. He is negligent about his
dress, but bis clothes become him, and never
disparage bim. People have told me that be
wore floe clothes, but, when questioned to
the point of re-examinatlon, admitted that he
had nothing on but ? woollen blouse and
trousers, and a black wide-brimmed, stiff,
To see this trim youth as he appears when?
ever seen on the highroads or the piney forest
bypath, or as often at the railway stations of
Moss Neck, Eureka, Bute's Store or Red
Banks, ls to see young Mars bearing about an
arsenal. His equipment might appear prepos?
terous, if we do not consider the peculiar cir?
cumstances of his warfare-outlawed by the
State of North Carolina, without a reliable
base of supplies, and compelled to carry arms
and charges in them enough to encounter a
large body of men or stand a long campaign.
A belt around his waist accommodates live
six-barrelled revolvers-long shooters. From
thirberraTMoulder strap passes trp and sup?
p?t ts behind, slinging fashion, a Spencer rifle,
wbtcb carries eight cartridges, and lt ls now
generally alleged that be bas replaced this
with a Henry rifle, carrying double the former
number of cartridges,while, successively, man
after man of the band, by some mysterious
agency, becomes possessed of a Spencer rifle.
In addition to these forty or forty-eight charges
Lowery oarrles a long-bladed knife and a
large flask of whiskey-tbe latter because he
fears to be poisoned by promiscuous neighbor?
hood drinking. He can run like a deer, swim,
stand weeks of exposure In the swamps and
forest, walk day and night, and take sleep
by little snatches, which, lo a few days, would
tire out white or negro. Although a tippler,
he was never known to be drunk-a fact not
to be justly asserted of his confederates.
Brought suddenly at bay he Is observed lo
wear that light, fiendish, enjoying smile,
which shows a nature at Its depths savage,
predatory and fond ot blood. The war he bas
waged tor the past nine years, within a region
of twelve or fifteen miles square, asalnst
county. State, Confederate and United Slates
authorities, alternately or unitedly, ls justifi?
cation for the terror apparent lo the faces of
all the white people within those limits. Low?
ery's band gives more concern to Ufe Caro?
linas than did Tarleton's Legion ninety , years
ago. HW .
LOWERY AS A BRIGAND LEADER.
"What ls the meaning of inls ?" said I to
"Parson" Sinclair, the fighting parson of
Lumberton, "How can this fellow, with a hand?
ful of boys and Illiterate men, put to flight a
society only recently used to warfare and full
of accomplished soldiers? Explain lt."
"Lowery," answered Blnclalr, "ls really one
of those re mar kan! e executive spirits that
arises now and then in a raw community,
without advantages other than nature gave
him. He has passions, but no weaknesses,
and his eye ls on every point at once. He
has impressed that whole negro society with
his power and Influence They lear and ad?
mire him. He asserts h1 j superiority over all
these whites just as well. No man who
stands face to face with him can resist his
quiet will and assurance and his searching
eye. Without lear, without hope, defying so?
ciety, he ls the only mao we have any know?
ledge of down here who can play his part.
Upon my word, I believe if he had lived ages
ago he would have been a William the Con?
quer. He reminds me of nobody but Rob
HIS BLOOD AND INCLINATIONS.
The three natures of white, Indian and negro
are, however, seen at Intervals to come tor
ward In this outlaw's nature. The negro trace
ls in his love of rude music. He Is a banjo
player, and when the periodical bunt for bim
ls done, he repairs to some one of the buts In
Scuffletown and plays to the dancing of the
mulatto girls and his companions by the hour,
his belt of arms unslung and thrown at bis
feet, the peaceable part 01 the audience taking
Eart with mixed wonder, delight and appre
ension. Several times this banjo hus nearly
betrayed him to his pursuers. Sh. riff MucMil?
lan described himself and pos-e once lying out
all night in Ihe swamp and timber around
Lowery's cabin to wait for him io come forth
at daylight. "And," said he, "that banjo was
Just everlastingly thrumming, and we could
hear the laugnter and Juba-beating nearly the
whole night long."
THE MULATTO SARDANAPALUS.
The licentiousness of Lowery ls sufficient to
be noticeable, but while lt never engages him
to the exclusion of vigilance and activity, lt
also shows what may be traced to his Indian
nature-the using of women as nn auxiliary to
war and plunder. He has debauched a num?
ber of his prisoners with the mulatto girls of
Scuffletown, and the charms ol these yellow
tinted sjreus broke up the morale of the late
campaign in force against the outlaws, while
as some allege, the discovery ol the Detective
Landers's plan to capture Lowery was made by
a girl in Lowery's Interest with whom Lan?
ders spent his <fcne. Lowery has said, and
laughed over lt, that he devised at a critical
point in the truce between the contending
p irties that a bevy of the prettiest and frailest
beauties in Scuffletown should come up and be
Introduced to one of the officers high in com?
mand. After that the Marc Antony in ques?
tion laid down his sword, and gave practical
evidence that the hostility of races is not so
great as the slavery statesmen alleged. The
Indifference of the Indian to the loan of his
squaws findB some parallel tn Lowery's tactics.
He himself ls the Don Juan of Scuffletown; but
he sleeps on his arms, and will go into ihe
swamps for weeks without repining. Women
have been employed to give him up; but they
either repent or he discovers their purpose by
THE OUTLAW'S WIFE.
The white society around him gave Henry
Berry Lowery a lesson in Belf-ecnoollog and
sacrifice so far as women were concerned.
After the murders of Barnes and Harris
offences which some think ought to have
been Included in the proclamation of oblivion
ior offences committed by both sides before
the close of the war-Lowery stood np by the
side of Rhody Strong, the most beautiful
mulatto of Fcuffletown, to be married. Aware
of the engagement and the occasion, the
sheriff's posse, with cruel deliberation, sur?
rounded the house till thaceremony was over,
and then rushed In and I took the outlawed
husband from the side of. his wife. He was
removed to Lumberton Jail, and then sent
still lurtber away to Columbus County Jail;
but he broke through the bars, escaped to the
woods with the Irons on his wrists, and made
bis way to his bride. They have three chil?
A GLIMPSE AT MADAME LO WE RT.
As I rode down on 4be train from Shoe Heel
to Lumberton, on the 28th of February, the
conductor. Colonel Morrison, came to me and
said: "If you want to se?|Henry Berry Lowe?
ry's wife, you can find her in the forward
second-class car." She had taken the train at
Red Banks for Moss Neck-points between
which the whole band of outlaws ireqnently
ride on the freight trains-and at the latter I
notable station I saw her descend with her
baby and walk off down the road in ?se woods,
and stop there among the tall pitch pines, as
If wailing for somebody. The baby-the last
heir of outlawry-began to cry as she left the
train, and she said, mother-fashion: "No, no,
no, I wouldn't cry, when I had been so good
all day !" This woman 1st the sister of two of |
the five remaining outlaws, and wife ot the
third. The whites call her, satirically,
"the Q nee ti of Scuffle town;'' but she
appeared to be a meek, pretty-eyed
rather shrinking girl, of,a very light color,
poorly dressed. She wore many small brass
rings, with cheap red stones in them, on her
hands, and a dark green plaid dress of muslin
delaine, which Just revealed her new black
morocco "store" shoes. A yellowish muslin
or calico hood, with a long cape, covered her
head, and lhere was nothing beside that I re?
member except a shaw] of bright colors,
much worn. It was sad enough and prosalo
enough to see this small woman with ber
baby In her arms, carrying lt along, while tbe
husband and father, covered with the blood of
fifteen murders, roamed the woods and
swamps like a Seminole.

BECAUSE A PERSON HAS A BAD
Cough lt should not be Inferred that Consump?
tion has set in, although a case of Consumption
ls rarely met with unaccompanied by a distress?
ing Cough. Where, however, a disposition to
Pulmonary disease exists, a Cough, if left to it?
self, strains and racks the Lungs, and wastes the
general strength, and soon establishes an incura?
ble complaint. In all cases, then, it ls the safer
plan to get rid of s Congh, Cold or Hoarseness
without delay, and for this purpose no remedy
acts more promptly or surely, or with more bene?
fit to the orgaus or the chest than Dr. D. JAYNE'S
EXPECTORANT, an article scientifically com?
pounded from carefully selected drugs, and
which, on trial, will always be found worthy of
its world-wide reputation. Sold everywhere.
