A singular incident occurred at Lewis?

haps, afford physicians a hint respecting
the treatment of that , hitherto unman

J. Ii. Smith, wbo lives near Pine Blouse,
S. O. The latter olaimed that his son
bad stolen a horse from him, and ran off
to this place with it. The horse was
found in tbe possession of young Smith,
but an investigation developed the fad
that it had not been stolen. The father,
it seems, gave the animal to bis non (who
ia about eighteen years of age) some

"Green corn" sounds curious at this

(Pla.) Herald says: "The steamer Ook
iawaba arrived here on Monday, the 18th

nine passengers. What was noteworthy
for the season, she bad for market 1,000
ears of green corn from Turkey Greek,

"that the present season has produoed
tba largest and most delicious oranges
that we have seen for many years. Per?
haps the unusual size of this fruit is
owing to the fact that the groves lost
one-third of their fruit .during the se?

Judge Bond called all the prisoners
ap, and obarged them aa follows:
. You bave pleaded guilty to an indict?
ment which oharges yon with conspir?
ing with other men throughout thia
State, to intimidate a oe?Hun o?ase ol
voters by means of threats, beating and
oven killing, because thal class) of oiti

iWe acknowledge great perplexity in
Sitermining what punishment shall be
eted out to yon. We have no word?
strong enough to signify Oar horror at
the means "employed to carry oat the
parp?se of the klacs. Oar difficulty is
personal to yon.
. You have, aa it opp oars from your
statements to the co art, been brought
tip in tho moat deplorable igaoranoe.
At the aojo of manhood, but one or two
.if yon caa oitber read or write, and you
have lived ia a ooajusuuity where the
ttvideuoe BOC ma to establish the fact thal
toe men ol prominence and education
those who, by their superiority in these
respects, establish ana . control public
opinion-were for the most part partial
panta in the conspiracy, or so much ia
terror of it that you could obtain frurr.
them neither protection nor advice, had
yon sought it.
. There is abundant proof of the natnn
aud obaraoter of the conspiracy. Evi
dence of nightly raids by bauds of dis
guised men, wbo bnke into the houser
of negroes and dragged them from theil
bods-parents and children-and, ticing
them to tree?; unmercifully beat them
is exhibited in every case. Murder anc
rape are not unfrequent aooompaui
menta, the story of whioh is too inde
cent for public mention. The peraom
upon whom these atrocities are commit
ted are almost always oolored people
Whatever exouae ia given for a raid, it
ero u elua ion was almost always aocompa
nied by a rebuke for the former exorcist
of the auftr?ge aud a warning aa to th
tature exercise of the right to vote.
But what ia quite as appalling to th
court UH tho horrible nature of these ol
fences, ia the otter absence, on you
part, and on the part of others who bav
made confession here, of any sense o
feeling that you have done auytuiu
very wrong in yonr confessed partioipa
doa in outrages whioh are unexample*
outside of the Indian Territory.
Some of your comrades reoite the oil
onmstanoes of a brutal, unprovoke
murder, done by themselves, with aa lil
tie apparent abhorrence aa they wool
relate the incidents of a pic-nie; an
you, yourselves, speak of the number c
blows with a hiokory whioh you iuflio
ed, at midnight, upon the laaeratec
bleeding back of a defenceless womat
without so much as a blush or sigh of ri
gret. None of you seam to have tb
slightest idea of, or respeot for, the si
oredneasof the human person. Some?
yon haye yourselves been beaten by tl
glans without feeling a smart, but tl
physical pain. There appears tobo r.
wounding of the spirit; no auch sense <
injury to yourself as a mau, aa would t
telt by the humblest of your fellow-oil
zena in any other part of the Unit?
dtates with whioh I am acquainted.
There the citizen upon whom sue
outrages were perpetrated, stung co ma
uess by tho insult to hia manhood, wou
be s (rift to follow the wrong-doer to tl
end.of the world to make him atone f
it. You make exouae for this in yo
statement to tho court that you are ve
ignorant; that the klans would ba
beaten you, and even killed you, had yi
refused to join them in their orin?
Some of you now partionlarly befe
me have actually suffered for your i
fasal before you really united in mei
bership with them. The court, in
endeavor to recognize some features
humanity in you, bas considered thc
foots whioh you plead aa excuses. Y
have grown up in a country wh<
slavery exiated fora long time, and wb(
the whipping-post waa a standing ins
T? see blacks flagellated was no c
usual occurrence. The scene oft
viewed, with ita novelty, lost ita revc
mg effect. And when it came to
understood that the human person v
not BO eacred in the oolored mao aa
secure immunity from outrage, it <
not take it loog to lose its sacred ohar
ter in yourselves, and ia all other u
who, like the oolored man, was oblif
to labor. It must be from this cai
that your utter indifference to wroi
which, among freemen, would stii
fever in the blood of age, arises.
And then you tell us that you dil
from many other portions of the conn
in this, that it has always been obli
tory upon you, and the class to wh
you belong, to look to persons of wea
and eduoation for command, and t
you, in your ignorauoe, had to foll
such persous implicitly.
It will appear strange to your fell
countrymen, who r-jad your story i
that of your confederates, however v
ing they may be to believe you, that
large a portion of tbe young white r.
of your County can be iu such a stab
abject slavery to the men of propt
above them, as to be willing to oom
murder at their oommand.
lu no euee bas there been any ret
anea to these mid-night raiders, exe
on the part of the colored people,
say some of yon "laid out" in the wc
night after night, aud have hidden y<
selves in thickets to escape these
randers. Nono of you, however, 1
had the manliness to defend your
sides from the assaults of these lan
men. There has not been, on your \
so far aB the evidence shows, an ass

enough, tho facto do. not exouse you.
They may palliate, in some degree, your
offence, bat: they cannot j natif y yon.
The po ni ah ment the court award? yon ia
partly inflicted that yo?may learn that
no amount ot th rou te or fear o? punish-,
ment will justify a man in unprovoked'
violence to another, unless the danger
threatened to tao wrong-doer be immi?
nent or actually pr?sent at . the time of
hi? wrong doing, and .even then tho dan?
gar must bs of present great- bodily
harm, and of death itself, before some
of the oriminal conduct confessed would
be justified. It does not exouse you for
participating in thia conspiracy, aud
raiding upon inoffensive colored people,
dragging them from their beds, beating
some and hanging others, that you had
notice if you did not join, the klaus
would visit you.
You are bound to run the risk or seek
means of protection, rather than do vio-,
lenee to your neighbor. The law and
your fellow-citisens look to you to make
this threst of violence difficult of exeoa
tion, by a manly resistance or. on en?
forcement of the law. You had no right,
wheu you oould escape, to make the
prioe of your security too violation of
. Yon and your confederates must make
up your minds either to resist the Ku
Klux oonspiraoy or the laws of the
United States. They cannot both exist
together; and it only needs a little man?
liness and courage, on the part of you
ignorant dupes of designing men, to
give supremacy to the law. Be assured,
it will ?ot be taken as an exouse in your
ossa, or in any other, to bear it said, "1
slew this man because the thief .ordered
it, and. I was afraid," and " 'brushed1
and raped these others beoanse I dreaded
to be whipped if I did not."
Mr. Oorbiu culled John Harris, one ol

description of bis being whipped in t
severe manner by the Ku Klux.

one of the party, a man by the name of
Eli Cbavia, from Edge?eld Oounty,
jumped from his wagon, and, making a
terrible lunge at Adam, plunged the
knife into his heart, cutting it in half.
He made no attempt to injure the boy,

for libel against William J. Murtagh,
editor of the Washington Republican,
laying damages at $20,000. Mr. Morris

to make an investigation, since the
charges reflected upon one of ita offlc-ere.
It is these charges whioh are met by the
libel sait above mentioned. - -i
