More Arrests In Abbeville.
"Wc regret to nnnonnce tho nrrest
of two moro of onr citizens, upon
what, we cannot bnt believe, the
merest suspicion, tho idlest rumor,
of some alleged complicity in thc
murder of Martin and Randolph.
On Weduesday afternoon, niter tho
arrival of the train, State Constable
Hubbard, with a posse of about niuo
persons, some of them armed with
Winchester rifles, and all of them
otherwise equipped, entered Stone &
Murray's cirons, during tho perform?
ance, and arrested a young man
named Stansell, of Cokesbury, under
a misapprehension for one Stacey.
After taking him out, they discovered
their error and released him. During
the afternoon Hnbbard obtained a
warrant from Mr. McDonald, the
Clerk of the Court, for tho arrest of
Mr. Charles Dendy, of our village.
The arrest was made, and when tho
Clerk was about committing the pri?
soner to Abbeville jail, Hubbard re?
pudiated the anthority of the Magis?
trate and claimed tho right, under
general instructions from the Go?
vernor, to arrest and carry off. The
power ho exercised, and the next
morning took his prisoii?r to Colum?
bia. On his way, he also arrested
Mr. Fletcher Hodges, at Hodges'
Depot, and took bim likewise on tho
train to Columbia. Mr. Dendy is
charged with alleged participntion in
the murder of Martin, and Mr.
Hodges in that of Randolph. We
feel assured that none who know the
character of the young men, or any?
thing of the circumstances of tho
case, could believe for one moment
that either of them could, in auy
poasible way, have boon connected
with those outrages. Mr. Dendy,
we learn, has ample testimony to
prove an alibi, and we suppose that
Mr. Hodges will find no trouble in
getting equally conclnsive evidence
to vindicate his character.
Whence does the Stute Constable
derive his authority to arrest and
hurry away our citizens beyond the
limits of tho Judicial District? Does
he pretend to derive it from the Go?
vernor? Yet so far is tho Governor
from having the power to imprison,
that his agents find it necessary to
obtain the imjrrimaiur of some Co?
lumbia Magistrate before they lodge
their prisoners in custody. The
power we believe to be entirely un?
authorized by our laws, and its exer?
cise a violation of our constitutional
rights.. Tho young men arrested by
an armed posse from Columbia,
bronght here at great expense to the
State, might have been arrested by
the weakest constable in the State.
Wo are emphatically for law and
order. We pledge ourselves to sus?
tain both, if allowed to do it. But
we insist that officers shall obey law
as well as citizens. Peaco officers
shonld not themselves break the
peaco. We deny that Gov. Scott, or
uny"ofli.:er of the State, baa thc right
to^prrest tho innocent citizen, upon
mere suspicion, or under a g^nerul
warrant. Such ?irrest is itself a
breach of law. And we utterly deuy
that that executive officer, his Excel?
lency tho Governor himself, or any
of bia police, has tho right to drag a
prisoner out of his County to Colum?
bia. -Abbeville Press.
THE Pore OF ROME.-Pius IX,
after a very serious illness, has again
appeared on the Corso. It is not
generally known that he is now se?
venty-eight years of age, having boen
born in 1790, though the Annuarto
Pontifico, repeatiug a mistake made
in the reign of Gregory XVi, gives
the date of bis birth as May 18, 1792.
"Tho Pope always langhs," says a
correspondent, when he takes up the
Annuario, and the other day observ?
ed: "They rob mo of two years, and
I am so mnch older than the world
gives me credit for."
What will the World Sayl
An analytical research into the
rrtotivA rmtpar tnK?/il? jr??r?nlg tbe SC
tiona of men, discovers tho fact that
not only ia self-interest the govern?
ing motive, but that a respect for
the world's opinion is tho prime
motor. Wo ask not ourselves, what
will God think of us? But what will
tho world say? It is of but little
consequence if tho voice of religion
admonishes us, or that "still small
voice" within the human breast,
which men call conscience, chides us,
so that tho world approves or ap?
plauds what we do. We care not for
that reward which is promised to the
just: "Well done, thou good and
faithful servant," coming from tho
heart of a Saviour; but cherish it and
strivo to win it comino; from the lips
of the world.
If wo give charity to the nuedy, it
is not given iu that spirit which
would bide from tho right hand what
the left hand doetb, but in u spirit
of ostentation and display, that thc
world may bear it or seo it, and give
tho doer its reward of praise. Ohl
the hollow-beartedness of such cha?
rity I The praise which it so foolish?
ly seeks, is tho only reward which it
can receive. It is not that charity,
which, like bread cast upon tho wa?
ters, will como back after many days
to bless tho giver, but a cold, unfeel?
ing cbarit3', intended not to bless the
receiver but tho giver; and so the
reward follows quickly and surely
the commission of the act.
If wo deni justly with our fellow?
men, it is not from houest motives,
but because wo respect the world's
opiuiou, and desire its praise. Even
if wo go to tho altar of God aud prac
tico tho precepts of religion, it is,
alas, too often the case, that wo cart
not what He thinks of us or our acts,
but that we wish tho world to believe
us good. And so we go on, Pharisee
like-hypocrites in faith and act
that wo may win good names ant
golden opinions, and the benedic
tiona of tho world. Well, that maj
do for the present. But, how foi
tho future? Will it Eave us in th<
day of trial, and before tho jiulg
mont seat of God? Will tho world'i
approval stand there against om
short-comings here, und win in tin
great hereafter rewards which DU
own acts have forfeited for us
Surely not. Why then strive s<
much to please a poor, helpless
wicked world? Why desire its ap
provul? Wiiy seek its applause
There are higher and holier motive
which should govern ns, and direc
us in nil our actions. Tho love c
God, the peace of a good conscienc?
and the hopes of Heaven, should b
the guides to take us through tb
world, and, so scorning its praise, it
follies, and its temptations, a great?
reward than any the world can giv
will await us-a reward no less tba
the joys of Heaven promised to th
faithful pilgrim over earth's desei
wastes.-Banner of the South.
GRANT'S Poucr. -Apparen tty
\ man can havo a policy and not kno
it. The idea tbut tho President elei
is a porsou without a policy seen
merely to have flowed from a misui
derstunding in regard to tho use i
words, aud is part of the diflereni
that arises between tho com muni!
and a man who never heard a thu
"called by that name before." G rai
bas, in fact, very positive ideas on
great many subjects, and os tho wor
pretty well knows that he is a mi
who sticks to his ideas, we shall 1
astonished ii these firmly held viei
do not in time make a very substa
tial fabric of policy more p.uzzlil
than pleasing to Congress. He bc
for instance, rather close notions <
national expenditure and simr
thoughts in regard to economy. 1
believes that a nation in debt, ns tl
nation is, and actually not meeti
its obligations already incurred, li
no right to go on incurring new ob
gntious; and wo fancy that the pin
people will concur with him in th
Here, then, is a point of policy
tho most extensive import, lt
sound in morality and iu finance, I
we c.inuot hope that the Congreasir,
al jobbers will accept it.
There is now no doubt that amii
bio relations between the Presidt
and Gen. Grant will soon bo re
tablished. Tho Christmas nmnei
proclamation received tho entire i
probation of tho President elect 1
foro Mr. Johnson'? Signatare was j
to it, and as it ia well known that 1
General has been consulted un vnrit
other important State matters, i
fair to presume that nothing rema
to confirm the entente cordiale
tween the o".t-going and the iu-co
ing Executives but the formal sh
ing of hands. Gen. Grant
determined to have peace.
