The OOH of tn? iaureno Prisoners-Ita
These men, on yesterday, were brough t
np before Judge Vernon on a writ of
habeas corpus. The prisoners were re?
presented bj Messrs. Garlingtou & Simp?
son-the State by Splioitor W. H Talley.
. Messrs. Dunbar and Worthington also
appeared against the prisoners in some
capacity not known to us. Pending tho
hearing of the case, Judge Vernon was
. served with a notice of ? resolution of
impeachment by the Legislature, and
the effort was made by Messrs. Dunbar
and Worthington to secure a delny of
the case. J edge Vernon docided to hear
the case through and to give his deci?
sion. The result was that tho prisoners
were discharged on giving bail in the
snm of $5,000 each. . The following aro
the names of the men thus discharged :
B. S. Jones, R. P. Todd, Hugh L. Far?
ley, James Copeland, S tobo D. Carling?
ton, Turner Richardson, Geo. F. Mosoly,
J. Y. H. Williams, N. S. Harris and
Henry Sober-all citizens of Laurens.
On tho 28th ultimo, the last 100 men
of the British garrison in Canada em?
barked for home, thus severing the last
link of formal protection bestowed by
the mother Government, and leaving the
destinies.of the New Dominion entirely
within its own hands. A Montreal
paper, in commenting npon the event,
truly says: "The departure of tho lust
of the troops was significant, and will
hereafter be set down as snoh by the
historian. The contrast thus afforded in
tho voluntary evaouation of Canada, with
the long and bitter struggle which at?
tended the separation of tho American
colonies, gives abundant food for reflec?
tion, and is illustrative of a long stop in
the world's progress toward that time
when the sword shall cense to bo the
AN OUTRAGE AND SWIFT RETRIBUTION.
-On Thursday evening last, a young
lady, whose name we have been unable
to learn, was attacked by a negro named
Bill Bland, who had been at work in a
coal bank near the wind-mill, six miles
South Of this place, and was shamefully
mutilated. lu struggling to release her?
self from the grasp of the demon, shu
was thrown violently to the ground,
and the heavy form of the negro falling
npon her, broke three of her ribs and
otherwise injured her. We are informed
that as soon as he accomplished his
devilish designs, he attempted to shoot
her, but, fortunately, the pistol would
not fire. The girl is an orphan, and
but little hopes of her recovery aro en?
tertained. The negro was arrested, and,
after making n full oonfessiou of tho
deed, was hung by the side of the road,
where he was left hanging for three
days, with a paper pinned to his coat,
upon which was writ'en, "Lot this mau
hang."-Miama (Mo.) Cable, Nov. 2i.

by a colored mau, who happened to be
near tho spot.-GreenvilleEtielrprisu.

Mr. Wilkes had recorded on tho jour?
nal the following: Upon the resolution
to impeach Judgo Vernon, I voto nay,
for tho reason that I do not consider the
evidcucc sufficient to put him upon his
defence. I think that moro than one
wituess to tho same fact should have
been examined. I do not doubt tho ve?
racity of uny witness who testified be
foro tho special committee. My objec?
tion above relates to the quantity of
Tho testimony giveu before the com?
mittee was read by the Clerk.
Mr. R. M. Smith made some remarks
against the adoption of tho report,
assorting that Judge Vernon had done
nothing but what ho was required to do
by law, and Iliac iie believed tho resolu?
tion was intended to suspend tho writ of
habitu* corpus, and that it would have
that effect, if btu ried through. Ho pro?
tested against tho Legislature stepping
in between the citizens of tho Stuto and
their great civil right-tho writ of habeas
corpus. Ho said that if Judge Vernon
was impeached for issuing these writs,
no other Judge would dare to issue
another, while the General Assembly wus
sitting. Ho hoped the House would not
pu u der'to tho prejudices and wishes of
a few, who aro pressing them on for
political purposes. *
A colored member asked him, as a
kind of justification for pressiug the
matter, if tho political rights of tho peo
j pie wore not their most valuable ones?
j Ho replied, to this senseless question,
i that uot having enjoyed political rights
j lately, he w^s not prepared to answer it.
