Wo obsorvo in tho Charleston News,
of the 20th instant, a communication
from Judge W. M. Thomas, o? tbe Sixth
Circuit, wherein lie makes a statement
- of his connection with the caso of the
Union prisoners called before him on a
writ of habeas corpus. He refuses to bo
made "tho scape-goat to bear tho respon?
sibility of the Union troubles." After
reviewing his official course in the pro?
mises, he conclu doa thus:
"Tho position of Judge at present iu
thankless enongh, and if I have failed
to discharge nay duty, I am ready to re?
sign. I feel that I bavo dono all that
was in my power, and if thero is a re?
sponsibility anywhere, except on the
armed band who violated the jail, it is
not on me.
"Who is responsible? It may be the
Sheriff; it may be those who orgauized
the militia in snob a way as to make it
liable to such acts as commenced this
carnival of blood, and now renders it
inefficient as a posse. But I think the
true cause will bo found in a constitu?
tional deficiency, which occusious the
apathy of leading citizens, to wit: taxa?
tion and no representation. This is con?
trary to ali republicanism, and should be
removed by those in authority, by a
ohange in tho Constitntion of the State,
making a tax-paying qualification for
one of the branches of the Legislature.
This is a slow remedy for a bursting boil,
but when the patient socs the physician
apply the proper remedy, he'may not bo
In another place tho Judge expresses
himself thus, referring to tho Union
troubles: "My idea was (is) that thc dis?
ease was constitutional and not local."
"OCR COMMITTEE. "-The Laurensvillc
This oommunity is naturally curious
to know what has been accomplished by
our recent mission to Washington.
From what we have gathered from the
gentlemen sent, we regard their visit to
this "heart of the nation" as woll-timcd
and promising important results, both
now and in the futuro.
In the first place, they were fortunate
in securing an uninterrupted interview
with tho President, of an hour or more,
iu which ho accorded them n patient
bearing to a long written document, pre?
pared by the chairman, Col. W. D.
Simpson. In this paper there was a ro
viow of all the exciting causes, tho many
aggravations, and the incendiary schemes
and harangues which prepared the way
for tho unfortunate occurrences of the
20th of October last. This was followed
by a truthful statement of all tho facts
of that affair, as well as the subsequent
developments to thc present limo. With
this paper were filod tho presentments of
tbegratnl juries of Laurens and Ricb
land Counties on the same subject, and
tho famous, or rather infamous "Water?
loo speech" of Joe Crews, with thc sig?
natures attached. After some verbal in?
quiries and explanations, the President
received theso papers and promised to
lay thom before the Investigating Com?
mittee of the Senate. In this, tho maiu
object of their mission, tho committee
felt gratified at their success. In tho
next placo, they were brought into free
communication with Senator Bayard,
thc D?mocratie member of thc Senate's
committee on "Southern outrages." His
opinion was that the raising of that com?
mittee was a mer? party moro, aimed
more particularly at North. Carolina aud
Georgia, td force them back to tho Re?
publican track. Ho said they were en?
gaged with North Carolina at that time,
and would probably devote the balance
of tho session to that State. He thought
that any effort to press upou their atten?
tion any matter connected with our
State would, j int then, be impolitic and
ill-timed. He promised to give our
committee due notice when thc proper
timfl should arrive, so that thc right class
of witnesses might bc summoned aud
tho troth elicited. Ho, with many
others, commended the manly spirit of
our people in thus sending on to seek an
investigation, rather than wait to be
summoued us criminals to account for
"outrages." And wo all know that this
mission was not sent in the interest of
any class or party, but that it was tho
spontaneous effort, on tho part of all
good citizens, to vindicate our noble old
Stato from tho vile and mnlignant asper?
sions of the traitors and foreigners in
our midst. Besides these ranin results,
the committee mot with many encourage?
ments, und imparted much needed in?
formation in their private and familiar
intercourse with those in position, a de?
tail of which would, of course, bo im?
proper in a newspaper uccount. Theil
chief encouragement was thc assurance
from those who ought to know, that no
thiug can bo more certain in tho future
than the success of thc great Democratic
party iu 1872. Let us look forwurd,
thea, to that date, when the wholo nation
will bo released from tho lunatic asylum
into which it was thrown from the* con?
vulsions of tho war.

Tb? Bowen Bignmy Caa?,
lu view, not alone, of tho exhaustive
ability with which this case was conduct?
ed to its submission to the jury, but in
consideration of the well-known circum?
stances attending it, the publio bad a
right to expect at tho hands of the jury
a decisive verdict. In this expectation,
however, they have becu disappointed.
After thirty-six hours deliberation, they
havo been unable to agree, and at tho
opening of the court this morning, in
answer io the usual inquiry, the foreman
announced that there was no probability
of their ugrcemcnt. The court express?
ed great reluotauce in being forced to a
new trial by tho disagreement of the
jury, but did not instruct thom to return,
in order that a verdict might bc reached.
Judge Wylie thcrcupou, on the an?
nouncement of the disagreement, dis?
charged thc jury with tho remark that if
thc prosecution failed to convict on the
i evidence they hud produced, they could
i not convict on coy evidence. If there
i was ono bought juror on a pauel he
i wouid be sufiicietil to defeat the con?
scientious motives of tho rest. The
! testimony of tko wretches produced as
j witnesses by the defence ought not to be
believed, and ho saw no reason why the
jury should disagree in this case.
Mr. Riddle said lie. felt it his duty to
: protest against tko Court using such lan
I guage in reference to a case not disposed
Judge Wylie .said he would retract no?
thing, uud felt called upon to say what
hu had said. Ile repeated that thc testi?
mony of Wilkinson, that he hud married
this woman, was enough to cause the
jury not to herd it.
Mr. Merrick said tho woman (Mrs.
Parin s liowen) had told him that she
was not married to Rowen.
Mr. Harrington remarked that Rowen
had admitted to him that he waa married
lo her. Ho spoke of a warrant against
j Wilkinson, and he would liko to know
! why ho had left so t-oou if he did not
j fear thc consequences.
I Mr. Merrick replied that he was not
j responsible for tue witness, ne believed
j if the defence had asked the Court to
I instruct the jury that tho prosecution
i had not made out a case, that the Court
would have done so.
Judgo Wy lio remarked that he would
t havo probably done so if the motion had
bcou mado at that time; but thc defence
hud, by introducing evidence, opened thc
door to rebutting testimony, aud da
! maged their case.
District Attorney Fisher suggested,
that as he had understood tho defend?
ant's bail to bo insolvent, he desired, in
tho dischargo of his official duty, that
tho bail-bond be renewed or increased.
Tho Court refused to make an order to
that effect, saying that this case hud
gonn far enough. Au animated ond
somewhat exciting discussion ensued,
very much out of the usual order of
?judicial dignity and decorum; whero
J upon Mr. Riddle,: as tho Court thought,
I added insult to injury, by moving au ad
Judge Wylie desiri d the gentlemen
j now to understand, if they never before
j understood, that such a motion was at
j any time a gross iusult to tho Court,
j Rowcu's friend on tho jury is under?
stood to be a deformed negro, who. it is
wi ll known, was the "hanging-out" soli?
tary man, who, in a previous case, bas
prevented a conviction.
It is proper now to make known thc
fact, as alleged by authority of counsel,
that Bowen admitted to tho District At?
torney his marriage to Mrs. Parkes, and
begged an "armistico" of a fow days,
within whick time ho would show that
ho had a divorce from Mrs. Parkes. This
was assented to, and the prosecution
waited before presenting the case to tho
grand jury. At tho expiration of the
time the so-called divorce was produced,
but it showed dato September 5, 1870
live days after the solemnization of Bow?
en's marriago with Mrs. Klug.
Titus ends this farce until tho March
term of tho Court at least-a term when,
as suggested by District Attorney Fisher,
Bowen may not bo forthcoming unless
placed under additional security for his
appearance. Ho mndo a motion to that
ct?eot, which was overruled, tho Court
remarking that this thing hud goue far
enough; if the Government could not
obtaiu a verdict on tho evidenco they
had presented, they could on no other.
About 1 o'clock this afternoon, Bowen
was agaiu arrested ou a charge of marry?
ing Mrs. King wlitrn ho had auotker wife
living, to wit: Frances Hicks King,
whom he is said to have married in 185*2,
in Augusta, Georgia. This makes tkrec
alleged living wives for Bowen tkat have
turned up thus far.
Tho warrant wus placed in the hands
of Detective Clarvoe, of tho Metropoli?
tan police force, for service. Detective
Clarvje went to Mr. Bowen's residence
about 2 o'clock and served tho warrant.
Tho latter expressed no eurpriso other
than to ask when thoy would cease com?
ing ofter him, and went with the officer
lo tho Police Court.

EXTENSION OF THE GREENVILLE AND

introduced iuto tho Legislature, praying
for the privilege of extending tho road
to Asheville, l>3' tho most direct nr:d
feasible route-either from Greonvillo oi

desirable. This bill oski for assistance
from the Stato to tho extent of SlO.OOt
per mile, so that thc old road can be pul
in compiulo order-new iron, etc. As il
is a mcasuro which will, doubtless, re
douud to tho benefit of tho Stato at
large, tho bill should meet with but little
opposition. A Western connection, r/V
Asheville, is desirable, and tho sooner il
is made tho better. With duo deference
to the old Blue Ridge route, the new one
