EIGHT DOLLARS A
THE LOWERY OUTLAWS.
AUi AUTHENTIC ACCOUNT OF THE FOE'
HATTON OF THE GANG.
A. Bloody Catalogue of Crimes-How the
People of Robeson County (V. C.) Be?
haved Towards the Outlaws-Inter?
esting and Trustworthy Details.
So much that is fanciful or exaggerated
has been written and said, North and South,
.of the famous or infamous band of half-breed
outlaws, who, under the lead of Henry Berry
Lowery, have for years been a terror to the
people of Bobeson County, North Carolina, that
the following letter from Mr. Alex. MacRae, a
respectable resident of that county, s ?vi og a
-connected account of the formation and atro?
cities of the gang, and of the antecedents of
Its chief, will be read with eager Interest:
The mulattoes of Scuffletown are undoubt?
edly descendante of tbe aborigines, probably
Tuscarora^ or Cherokees; many of them,
direct deseen dan ts of their Indian forefathers,
bear decided Indian features and characteris?
tics. There are among them a goodly number
of half-breeds crossed with tbe whites-rarely
ever with the -negroes, and they never have
been slaves, but always free. Many of the
grandfathers or great-grandfathers of the
?nesent stock: owned large bodies of land, and
n some instances slaves, and were generally
respected by the better class of white farmers
In the county. Such was especially the case
with the LoweTys. The grandfather of Atlen
Lowery nwned both land and slaves, and is
said to have been educated to the extent that
our common country schools afford. Allen
Lowery, Ihe lather of Henry Berry Lowery,
bad ten sons, George, Patrick, William,
Purdy, Sinclair, Murdock, Calvin, Stephen,
Tom and Henry Berry. The latter the
youngest. Several of them moved off to other
States as they, grew up. Allen has twice
married, or rather once married, and getting
into some difficulties about land suits, or
law-suits of some klud, moved to South Caro?
lina, where he remained* about two years,
during which time his wife married some
other man, and be, on bis return, married
another woman. Marriage, in those days
among free mulattoes, or negro slaves, was
not considered a very binding obligation.
The above named sons, I think, are the pro?
geny of the second wife or woman. Among
these, and with old Allen himself, law-suits,
taxes, Ac, despoiled them of most of their
lands; and they, like Indians generally, be?
lieving their canse just In all cases, could not
clearly recognize the rights of tbe courts to
?ell their Ianda, and claimed that they had
.been defrauded of them. Probably in some
cases they were outwitted or defrauded by
sharper men-such bas been the fate of the
Indian ever since this country was first settled
by whites. What ls here stated of the Low
erya may well apply to most all of the Inhabi?
tants of Siuffletown who were formerly large
land owners, and (hough nearly every family
now bold small homesteads, they do not own
lands to tbe extent they did in former years.
?I am disposed to think, from what I have
heard bore, that the Scuffletonlans bave de?
generated rapidly In the last twenty-five
.or thirty years. Previous to about that time
the; were allowed to vote, were required to
beajr arms and muster, and were more gene
Tally mixed with the whites on terms of equal?
ity. Being found useful as voters they were
tolerated by the whites. In 1835 the conven?
tion withdrew the right of Euffraee from all
tree men of color, and also the right, to bear
arms; and being no longer useful to tbe
Whites as voters, and no longer allowed to
mix with them as militiamen, they were gen?
erally degraded to the level ot negro slaves;
or, in fact, In many instances, came to
he looked down upon by the slaves as beneath
them. This, of course, Incensed them, and
they began to look upon the whites as
their enemies, and taught their children to
despise them; and though policy dictated
apparently good will, many ot them being de?
pendent upon the whites for employment,
they were generally ready to aid with any
cause that afforded them a safe chance of re?
taliating on their white neighbors. Other
causea they had, too, lo increase their enmity.
During the war they were made subject to
detail, and as slaves, were made to work on
the fortifications.and from all I cm gather
they were hunted and persecuted b;* some of
the home guard and conscript officers. I am
glad to be able to say that the majority of the
home guard officers were h ur. a ne, and had
.due regard to the condition ot' 'b.e*e mun and
their families In making their details. The
opposite cases were exceptional; still the
whole Bjstem only served to Incense them the
more, and hence they were found ready and
Willing tools in the hands of Gen. Sherman's
soldiers, In their passage through this country
as pilots In their raids upon the white settlers.
And hence, also, when the right to vote was ac?
corded to them after the war, they were found
by the leaders sf the Republican party, as the
freedmen were, ready and willing to Join
them in anything that would strike at the in?
terests or standing ot their white neighbors
seizing upon the hue and cry of rebel, Eu
Hlux, ?tc, to incite their, leaders to more
stringent measures to injure them, and, unfor?
tunately, finding some few degenerate white
natives who were ready and willing to take
tip the cudgel with them, to Inflict injury on
their former neighbors and friends. These
are principally thu reasons for the venom of
Henry Berry Lowery and his gang against the
white people of the county, and the reasons
nfiy the balance of tbe population of Scuffle?
town arc 12 sympathy with bim and bis gang.
It remalns"n?w for ae to trace, as far as I am
.able, the early career ol Lowery and bis gang,
premising that the members Cf his band are
nearly Mated to him by blood or m?rrlaJfe
Some time in the fall of winter of 1863 Henry
Berry Lowery or one ot bis brothers. William,
J think, fled to the swamps to escape detail to
the torts at the mouth of the Cape Fear River,
and while hiding out were Joined by some
three or four escaped Federal prisoners from
Florence, S. C. They established a camp in
the back swamp near the plantation of James
P. Barnes and committed various depredations
on stock, killing some of Barnes's hogs and
?heep. -Some time In January or February,
1864, the exact date.I do not recollect. James
P. Barnes, while out turkey-hunting in the
swamp, came upon their camp and charged
them with the killing of bis stock, threatening
to Inform the home guard officers of their
whereabouts if they did not leave his neigh?
borhood. Shortly afterwards Barnes was shot
from an ambush on the s de of the road by the
two Lowerjs while he was passing on his way
home from the postofflce, reading a news?
paper. Barnes fet** ihough not killed, and
H. B. Lowery and his brother William and
one of the escaped prisoners came out of the
ambush and walked up to Barnes, and H. B.
Lowrey, finding that he was not dead, kicked
him and cursed him for threatening to set the
home guard officers after them, and aile wards
Slaced tbe muzzle ot bis gun to his face and
red, tearing nearly one bali of one side of
nls face off. Tbey then left, and strange to
say, Barnes lived until bis brother. Dr. John
Barnes, who was attracted by the firing, came
to bis relief and got him home, sending for a
magistrate at bis request, before whom" he de?
posed these fads. This waa the first murder
.committed by Lowrey, who was at that time <
some eighteen or nineteen years old; and this
.could not be claimed by Lowrey, as he has
-claimed for others of his numerous murder.?,
that lt wa? In retaliation for Injuries Inflicted
on himself and family, for J. P. Barn* s, I am
informed by several gentlemen ot undoubted
?veracity, was notoriously Inoffensive, kind to
his neighbors, even to the mulattoes, several
of whom lived Dear bim. I have myself heard
two or three of the mulattoes express decided
?disapprobation at the killing of so good a man
as Barnes, though never expressing an opin?
ion as to who killed him.
The next murder committed by the Low?
ery s was that of James Brandt Harriss, some
time in August, 1864, and I must admit from
the facts of the case as I have heard them,
that they may have been entitled to the claim
of reveDge or retaliation for wrongs inflicted.
Harriss was not a native of this county, but a
wagoner from the up country, who had set?
tled in Scuffletown among the mulattoes,
where be kept a small roadside store, selling
liquors, Ac to the Scufflvtonlaus. He was
charged with being too familiar with Borne of
the wives and daughters ot his customers,
and from this cause sprung up enmities be?
tween himself and the Lowerys. After the
breaking out of tbe war. Harriss was ap?
pointed sergeant, lieutenant, or something of
conscription, ana waa engaged principally in
hunting up mulattoes who bad been detailed
xor work on the forts, and from all accounts
he was one of the roughest of his class, over?
bearing and abusive to them. The gravest
charge they bring against bim was the killing
of two sons of G?orge Lowery, couains of H.
B. Lowery. The dead bodies of the two
young men were found, and the presumption
of the Lowerys was that Harriss had shot j
them, and for this they swore vengeance
against him. Harriss soon afterwards surren?
dered himself to' the civil authorities, or gave |
bond for his appearance at court for trial the
month afterwards, (September,) but he was
shot by the Lowerys before court met. After
the killing of Harriss, it Is supposed that H. B.
Lowery was Joined by some two or three
others of the mulattoes, probably some of the
same ones who have since formed a part of
his band, and they continued fugitives from
Justice from that time. After this the depre?
dations of the band consisted principally of I
petty thefts and robberies, or, as they called
lt, foraging for a living, until some time In
January, 1865, when they fell In with some
twenty escaped Federal prisoners from Flor?
ence, of mixed nationalities and headed by an
officer. These they Joined and commenced
a general system of robberies, the Lowerys
piloting and participating In them. They
soon became the terror of the county,
though I have never heard of their commit?
ting, any deeds or blood, only threatening
those who hesitated about opening their
doors. Some time in the latter part of Febru?
ary they were reported as being on the Rock?
ingham road, working their way up towards
ihe upper end of the county, and th? propriety
of offering resistance was generally discussed
among the fa;mers living on the road, most
of them declaring that asno effectual resist?
ance could be offered to such a force, (ihey
were variously stated at from twenty to fllty,)
the beet way was to open the doors to them
and let them plnnder at will, parti cu lat Iv as
the county was then nearly depleted of men
capable ot bearing arms. In this discussion
my present wife, then the widow of Dr. Neill
McNalr, was Included, and she expressed
pretty warmly her appreciation of their want i
o? nerve In determining to open their doors to
a band of robbers, and vowed she would never
open hers; that li they came in they would
have to break them down. At that time there
was refuging here with Mrs. MacRae two
families, her sister and family and ber
brother's wife and family. These two ladies
counselled moderation, and the discussion con?
tinued until the afternoon of the 27th of Feb?
ruary, when two young men, acquaintances
of Mrs. MacRae, came down from Richmond
County on a visit ot two or three days, and
Mrs. MacRae declared that with such an ad?
dition to the defensive force she would resist
them to the last. On the same night, about
twelve o'clock, the band came to the liront
door and demanded admittance. Mrs. Mac?
Rae ran up stairs and aroused the two young
men, telling them the robbers were at the
door. One of the young men, the wounded
Confederate soldier, had his pistols with bim,
one a large naval revolver and the other a
small pocket revolver, which be brought
down with him, handing the smaller one to
Mrs. MacRae. When he reached the lower
passage the.'robbers had broken Into one of the
room windows and were engaged in plunder?
ing. He opened the door and fired on one man
who was on his knees over a trunk, which he
was about breaking open. This frightened
them and they sprang through the window,
not seemingly anticipating any defence. They
afterwards went to the wood yard and got an
axe and torches and came back, swearing
they would bretik the door down aod murder
every one In the bouse. They commenced
splitting the door panels with the axe, and
while doing so one ot the number stood Im?
mediately Tn front of the side light, holding
a torch for the others to see. The wounded
soldier and Mrs. MacRae were stooping on the
same side of the door, and Just below tbe Eide?
light, watching their proceedings. As the
man outside leaned his back against the sash,
the young soldier placed the muzzle of his
pistol against the glass and fired, driving the
ball through the man, a little below the
shoulder, who, falling forward on his fare,
pitched the torch out into the yard. This
created a great confusion outside, and the
parties picked up their murdered comrade
and carried bim out of the front gate some
distance, swearing they would come back
and have revenge. Thpy d\d retnrp in a few
minutest'bringing other torches with them,
and as they approached the steps fired a vol?
ley through the sW'.- lights, shivering the glass,
and almost blinding the young mao with the
panicles which were knocked Into his face
and eyes, and cutting Mrs. MacRae's neck
slightly. Fortunately the shot did not strike
either, but lodged In the celling overhead.
Alter this the door gave way, and the party
rushed in. Before luejr did, however, Mrs.
"??lii? had pushed the young mun In a room
and met them herself, and on being question?
ed as to who had fired the shot through the
glass, declared she bad done it herself. At
this a mulatto, three of whom had entered
with the crowd, swore he would kill her, and
raised his gun lor the purpose, but the
officer in command ordered him to detlst,
and threatened to shoot any man who offered
her violence. His threat, however, did not
prevent the mulatto, whom abe took to be
H. B. Lowery, from siriking her a severe
lick in the back with the butt of his gun, cs
she walked down the passage ahead ot him.
The officer again interfered, and thoved Low?
ery back. Atter this no further violence was
offered, but the crowd began to help them?
selves to whatever they found to snit them,
taking all the sliver, Jewelry, &c, thc? could
find, together with a quantity of clothing,
blankets, Ac. The day alter the attack ai
Argyle, several of the neighbors assembled
here, and determined to obtain the assistance
of a small body of the home guard, who were
stationed above here, and follow the robbers.
Accordingly, next day they assembled to the
number of twenty-five or thirty, and followed
on lo Scufnetown, where the band were re?
ported to have halted to divide their plunder.
The band had dlopersed, however, before
they got to Scuffletown. The party then
heari'2* that H. B. and William Lowery
were at Cheir father's (Allen Lowery)
house, proceeded there and arrested the
three-Allen, H. B. and Wllllam-aud held
?them prisoners while some of the party
searched the premiss, and loiind in a caye
under the house stolb'.i goods ol various kind?,
guns, pistols, ?fcc, some ?f which were recog?
nized as the property of .Bome ot the party
then present. They then held ? consultation,
and eome of the party voted for shooting the
three; others, and generally the older mx>? ?f [
the party, counselled moderation, and advls?a i
that they should be carried to Lumberlon to ,"
be dealt with by the law. The others, how?
ever, prevailed, declaring that they would be
liberated by Sherman's army, who were then
daily expected to reach this county, and.
declaring that H. B. and William deserved
shooting for the two murders they were
known to have committed. They anally
tied the three, and a squad stepped off to
shoot them, but Just belore the firing com?
menced, H. B. Lowery burst his bonds
and fled, escaping to the swamp, which
was close by. The other two, Allen and his
son William, were then shot. Some other
rash measures were proposed, but overruled.
Alter this H. B. was Joined by his brothers,
?stephen and Tom, and by the two Srrongc.
Boss Strong, a mere boy at the time, and com?
menced a regular course of crime. They were
afterwards joined by Henderson Oxendioe
and George Applewhite, ihe latter a negro,
having for a wile Henderson Oxendlne's sis-,
ter. The crimes committed by this gang of j
outlaws, ?fier this organization, are too well
known to require me to ti ace them out In all
their sickening and bloody record. Suffice lt
to say that they are chargeable with some
seventeen brutal murder.*, in only one of j
which they claim any show of Justification,
even If revenge might be admitted as an ex?
cuse for murder.

NEW YORK, March 30, 1872.
In the month ot January, 1571, the Equa?
table Life Assurance Society ot the United
?5'titre "were rntimuwcr Wj -t*?? -pwrtnWnft?n?
of the insurance department ot New York,
that LaRoye S. Grove, who had insured his
Hie in said society, about one year previous
for the Bum ot $2500, had presented certain
grave charges against the directors and man?
agement ot Bald society.
Whereupon the president of the society
addressed the following letter to the superin?
"Bon. Geo. W. Miller. Superintendent of Ihe
Insurance Department of the State of Xevo
"DRAU SIR-The counsel of this society has
handed to me a copy of charges with specifica?
tions sworn to by a policy-holder. As some of
these charges and specifications have not the
slightest foundation In truth, and in other
cases are grossly exaggerated, and the truth
perveried, and as I tully believe each charge
admits ol'the lullest and most complete ex?
planation, I have felt it my duty to address
to you this communication.
"Conscious that the affairs of this society
have been conducted by the officers with a
high integrity of purpose, and with a view to
the best interests or the policy-holders, and
having nothing to conceal as to the condition
of the society or the manner In which its af?
fairs are conducted, I would respectfully re?
quest that In the exercise of that authority
conferred upon you by law and appointment
to your position as superintendent of the In?
surance department, you would institute such
investigation into the condition, affairs and
transactions of the society as you in your dis?
cretion may consider that the presentation of
these charges demands.
"Feeling aegrleved that charges BO unfound?
ed Bu?uld be preferred. Jealous of tue honor of
the society and that ot Its officers and doc?
tors, I would respectfully solicit ftat, with as
little delay as possible, you would give your
attention to the subject.
"I am, very respectfully,
"Your obedient servant,
'.(Signed) WILLIAM C. ALEXANDER,
The superintendent subsequently replied
that he would commence an examination of
(he company at as early a period as his official
duties would permit.
Before an examination had been made by
tho' said superintendent, a person professing
to be the representative of a newspaper Jn
this city called upon the officers of the society
and Informed them that this newspaper had In
its possession, for publication, a copy of
charees against the society, made by LaRoy
S. Gove, and that he, the professed represen?
tative of the nt-'Wfpaper, was prepared io
enter Into a negotiation for their suppression.
The officers of ihe society refused to pay for
such suppression, and the charges were lhere
upon published In the newspaper which the
person claimed to represent.
The director-* of the socletv again requested
the superintendent of t*ew York to make the
examination without delay. But in conse?
quence or the legislative examination or the
insurance department ot this State, the super?
intendent was again unable to give it Immedi?
ate attention. Tue directors also requested the
commissioner of the State of Massachusetts to
make au additional or concurrent examina?
tion, which he consented to do, and bas asso?
ciated with bimse.f the undersigned to assist
him In the investigation.
Upon assembling at the offices of the society,
the undersigned at once entered upon the in?
vestigation ot Mr. Cove's charges made to the
New York Insurance Department, and since
widely ppread before the public lu printed
form. The Massachusetts commissioner, at the
meeting .called io make the investigation,
.?tated that he caused Mr. Gove to be notified
in writing ol' the investigation, and had Invited
him to furnish testimony lo support ot his
chargf s, and presented the affidavit of per?
sonal service ot the notice upon him.
Mr. Gov? did not appear or offer any testi?
mony IO sustain bis allegations.
Tue minutes of the society and of the seve?
ral committees, the account books, cash books
and check books of the society were then laid
before the undersigned and carefully exam?
ined. The officers of the society, and such
other persons as the undersigned desired,
were examined under oath, and each specific
charge was carefully and exhaustively In?
quired into, and the undersigned ?erilty thar,
excepting a clerical error in publishing,
among the Hst of paid policies, a contested
claim, which error was rectified as soon as
discovered, the charges and sp ec ld cai I OB s are
untrue and malicious. The amount of the
policy referred to was returned to the insur?
ance departments as a liability In accordance
with the rules ot the departments with regard /
to contested policies; which fact corroborates I
other testimony, showing that the error was
The undersigned, following in their Investi?
gation the order In which the charges and
sp?cifications are presented, find:
1. That the society possessed the legal
power to erect their building, which contains
the offices of the society, at the corner of
Broadway and Cedar street, and the under?
signed refer to the opinion of Professor Theo?
dore W. Dwight, respecting the same.
2. They further find that the erection of the
building was a wise and Judicious measure,
and ls a safe Investment, yielding an Increas?
ing annual Income of more than five and a
half (5J) per cent., leaving the society free
from rent for ils own offices; and If the value
of the offices occupied by the society is taken
Into account, we are of opinion that lt has no
money Invested to better advantage.
3. They further find; that in reference to
the compensation of the officers, both the
method of payment and (he amount paid as
charged, are untrue. ?From the evidence sub?
mitted to them, the aggregate sum for paid
salaries by the society, during the first eleven
years of its existence, as compared with its
Income during the same period, produces a
ratio at least as favorable as that of any life
company (for the same years from i860 to
1870, inclusive) organized during the year In
which the Equitable was organized, or since
that time, or even prior to that time, with the
exception of two, the preliminary expenses of
those two companies, not being taken into
account in the estimate, because they were
organized more than fifteen years previous to
4. They further find that no loan was made
an the 20th of September, 1870, or at any other
lime, upon New Tork Central and Hudson
River Railroad stock. But they find, on the
contrary, that no loan has been made by the
society, except upon securities authorized by
and In accordance with the law.
5. The charge that the building committee
sr any of the directors are or were interested,
ilrectly or indirectly, in the quarry from
.v'n'ch the stone for the building was taken,
ar pecuniarily Interested in any other contract
if the soc'ety, was most carefully and mlnute
y examined, and the undersigned declare the
;narge to be both false and malicious. On the
contrary, the undersigned find that the erec?
tion of the building in .all Its detalla was care
ully watched over by tbe directors, and par
ilculariy by the l aiming committee, with as
much attention as a prudent man gives to his
awn business. -
6. That the mode of loaning the money of i
;he corporation was particularly examined ,
md meets the approval ot the undersigned,
who finds tfya charges of favoritism wholly .
unfounded, and other things being equal, i
principals are given the preference over ,
7. The secretary ol the society, who form- 1
?rly was In business as a fire Insurance agent i
ind general broker, relinquished the charge ,
af the fire insurance business of this society ,
fvhen he became connected with it three
rear's ago. The secretary has not attended <
io the fire Insurance business of the company, <
?nd no director or officer ls or has been
interested in such business, nor has the secre?
tary loaned money on policies as charged. :
8. It ls proved to our satisfaction that the
directors of the society have not loaned tbe ,
money ol -*he society to themselves upon
security not allowed by law, and that no 1
loans have been made through the lavorit- i
ism of its officers and directors on Inadequate
security, or contrary to law.
9. In the opinion of the undersigned, the
directors, so far from having managed the
affairs ol the society wastefully or extrava?
gantly, have managed them prudently and ,
successfully, and have made no false returns
to the insurance departments.
10. The rates ot commission paid to agents,
as charged, are untruly stated. No salaries
are paid to agents in addition to commissions.
11. They find from the testimony given by
the officers and directors, that the establish?
ment of an agency In Great Britain has not
proved a failure; that the agent sent there
ts not Inexperienced In the insurance busi?
ness; that he receives no salary, but that bis
commissions are guaranteed for three years to
an extent of $10.000 per annum; and that the
result of bis labors, In introducing the socle
f?^^ra**ofa^^SL; **^n fla"8f4Ctory to
12. The charge Ultu, unmcj has been waoto
fully spent upon the building io sufficiently
answered by our opinion of the investment.
13. They further find that the society does
not falsely advertise Itself as a mutual com?
pany. The necessity of a capttal stock arises
from the fact that, before the organization of
the society, laws were enacted In New York
requiring all companies organized after such
enactmeut to have a capital stock and to make
a deposit o? one hundred thousand dollars
with the Insurance department, as a guarantee
to policy-holders. The annual dividends upon
this stock are limited to seven per cent. This
amount ls nearly earned by the Investment of
the capital; all of the profits are divided
amongst the policy-holders; the stock bears
no such market price as ls charged, and as no
unlawful gains can be made thereon, the own?
ership of the stock can only be desirable for
the protection of the company. The provision
as to a stock management ls not concealed
from policy-holders, bur, on the contrary, the
directors are of opinion that it forms one of
the greatest safeguards of the company.
14. In conclusion the undersigned desire to
say, that they are unable to find an honest
motive for the presentation of charges so to?
tally unfounded. This Investigation oas shown
only an honest and efficient management of
the society. The Massachusetts commission?
ers, with Professors Theodore W. Dwight, of
Columbia College Law School, and Junina B.
Wheeler, of the West Point Military Academy,
will at once proceed to examine the details of
tbe management of the society from Ita foun?
dation, and Messrs. Upton, Spaulding, Latasa,
Kelly, Schwab and Fogg will examine Its
assets and investments, which the under?
signed will report upon as soon as the Investi?
gations are concluded. From ihe wide pub?
licity given to these charges lt ls thought best
to make this report upon ihem at once. The
undersigned desire to express their unquali?
fied approval of the action of the society In
resisting the attempt to extort money lrom It
under color of these charges. And finally, the
undersigned take great pleasure in bearing
their unanimous testimony to the faithful and
successful management by the trustees and
officers of the society of the great trust re?
posed in them.

THE RULE OF THE BAYONET.
GRANT'S HU-KLUX CRUSADE.
Another Raid on Newberry County
Two of Scott's Officials Arrested.
[SPECIAL TELEGRAM TO THE KEW8.]
COLUMBIA, April 7.
Twelve more citizens of Newberry County
bave been arrested on charges of violating the
enforcement act, and thrown Into the county
[all. Among the number , are County Treas?
urer Thomas P. Slider, and Deputy Sheriff
John J. Houseal. SALUDA.
The Raid on L.a?ren?vllle-How the
Arrest? were Conducted.
The Laurens ville Herald ls grimly facetious
over the arrest of one of Its editors during the
recent raid on Laurensvllle. It says:
Those ubiquitous personages, Uncle Sam't
marshals, have been tn our midst recently,
and took and carried away the "better-hail"
of the Herald, leaving us alone to "pine on the
stem." As evening approaches, the lines ol I
Moore are brought forcibly to mind
"I feel Ilka one,
Who treads alone
some'banqae: hail deserted,
Whose lights are fled.
Whose garlands dead,
And all but be departed !"
But there Is a portion of the same author's
last blossom that ls sadder still, running
"So soon may /follow,"
Tor there is no telllDg what moment some hell?
hound of the law may say
I'll not leave thee, thoo lone one."
But to be more serious and definite, those
fellows in blue arrested and carried away our
partner, Mr. A. W. Teague, with several other
useiul and peaceable citizens; and we have
been seriously questioned as to why they did
not take us also. Well, we don't know. We
tmly know they did not, for which we thank
them, as we have no losgiog pruriency to be
thus martyrized. Yet we are here, and while
we are permitted to remain we expect to pur
jue the same fearless journalistic course aa
The same paper describes the raid and gives
Ihe names of the citizens arrested, as already
published in THE NEWS. The military officers,
Lieutenant McDoagal and Lieutenant Miller,
appear to have performed their disagreeable
iuty with a creditable degree of courtesy and
consideration, but as much cannot be said of I
some of the private soldiers, nor of the dep- [
?ty marshals. Many citizens were arrested
without knowing what were the charges
against them, and no warrants were present?
id. The scenes in the streets of Lanrensvllle,
[luring the quiet Sabbath day that was selected
for the raid, are described as heartrending
wives, sisters, mothers and little children
clinging to the necks of husbands, brothers,
sons and fathers, and sending up a wall of |
grief that was pitiable In the extreme.
Some of the soldiers resorted to low tricks
to extort money from their colored friends by
levying a small tax per capita, charging from
twenty-five to seventy-five cents for the pri?
vilege of passing through the ploket lines
that were posted about the town.
The Columbia Pheonix learns that Dr. Wm.
Anderson, a gentleman of about seventy years
of age, was arrested by a simple stroke of the
pen. The warrant was issued for Wm. Ander?
son, who ls comparatively a young man, but
the officers, who were charged with serving
the warrant, falling to find their Intended vic?
tim, simply placed "Dr." before the name,
and arrested a gentleman who, lt is confi?
dently asserted, can prove an alibi.
TH* prisoners from Laurens were all
brought up beiui^^iredfloitpR Cqmrniesloner
Doozer, at Columbia, last Saturday, when J.
A. Fritz, was discharged, and the examination
pf the others was postponed until next Frkury.
Chas. Jeter was also brought up from Union
County, charged with violating section ll of I
the enforcement act In aiding the escape of |
persons charged with Ku-Kluxlem. Mr. Bice
appeared for the prisoner, and after a hearing
he was discharged.
THE TRADE IN NAVAL STORES.
Ii There a Ring at Work ?
NEW YOEE. April 6.
The naval stores trade has been completely
unsettled during 'the past week, but closed
with some signs of recovery. The present
anomalous condition of this trade grows out
of a series of large speculations, beginning
last summer, and planned to control the entire
production of 1871. The necessities ol the
loreign market were allurements for a com?
bination, or ring, In naval stores. The Fran?
co-German war has stopped the producion
lu the lorests of North France, where the
bulk of the Continental supplies have been
secured, and up to the time for the sap to
run but little concentrated effort was known
to have been made to resume operations In
this section. Hence, In June and July last,
loreign capital entered largely to operate upon
the American market. It was reported that
the supplies from wilmington and Charleston
would avenge a0out the ea.ise as the pre?
vious jeaP< Upon this assumption an advance
in price was established about the middle of
July, over the corresponding time In 1870,
of Alteen per cent. The scarcity of ocean
freights led to the accumulation of stocks,
both here and In Wilmington. ?? effort
was made to relieve the latter port, but a 1
vessel was wrecked, and the news of her loss
broke the market, and prices were depressed
at once twelve per cent. Since then
values In naval stores have been unsettled,
and the first signifi?t 8t0p in the drooping of
j prices ls noticed this week. The reasons for j
the excessive fall in rosin Hes In the fact that
the stock in the yards here ls abont 101,000 A
late count announced on 'Change ol 70,000 i
I barrels did not include the stock in one yard I
f o/ nearly 30,000 barrels. This is against 78,000
barrels for the same lime in 1871. The stock
' of turpentine now In this city ls 3500 barrels,
I against 3609 at the same time lu 1871. The
market In this city has been relieved within
the past two days of aoout 30.000 barrels rosin
for export orders, and there ls a disposition
with the trade to name concessions that will
Induce larger relief on export and place all
stocks ano stores below the average of pre?

IMPORTANT TRADE-MARK DECISION
IM HKS PE CT TO
JOSEPH GrtLOTT'S STEEL PESTS,
NO. 303. ; 1 .
Mr. GILLOTT brought an action In tbe supreme
court of the State or New York ag al na t Ric h ard' E*
terbrook and others, which was tried in November,
1884, and judgment rendered thereto restraining "
them from using his Trade Bfark, ?Mo* 303,"
and from maklng;or selling steel pens with said
numerals Impressed thereon, or opon the boxes of
packages containing them.
An elaborate opinion was delivered by the Court
in that case, per Potter, Justice, the conclusion of
which ls as follows:
'Tt appearing from the evidence that the plain?
tiff, at a time prior to that of ita ase by any ether
manufacturer, selected the device '303Vai a
trade mark for a pattern of apen manufactured by
uno, th?? &e obtained end secured thereby a val?
nable interest in the good-will of his manufacture
or that pen; that having appropriated to himself
this device to be engraven or impressed up on bia
said pen as a trade mark, which in connection
with his name also impressed on said pen, Indica?
ted that such pen was manufactured and ?old by
him; the plaintiff has established a right, and ia
Entitled to Protection hy Perpetual Ia?
Junction, against the defendant's Impressing
or otherwlse'oslDgthe ngorea-or numerals ' ?303*
(which ls a part or the plalntlfl's trade mark)
upon their pens, or u; on the labels or boxes in
which the said peps are pat np by the defendant."
Thia d?cision was affirmed atTtbe General Term
or the Supreme Court, and again by the Court or
Appeals at the close of its recent session In Al*
bany. _ "*
The principles involved therein apply with equal
force to other num?rala-say l7Pt 351 and 404
--.nO. other? used by Mr. Gillett as trade-maris
of pena manufactured by him, and all persona
are cautioned against any infringement upon the
right acquired by bim to the exclusive ase of
such trade-marki, which will be enforced by all
