A BAND or DESPERADOES-SHERIFF'S
OFFICE BOBBED.-Last week we gave an
account of an attempt to arrest two
ootorious robbers. Bill and Bob Sartor,
who turned on the officers, beat them,
threatened to kill them, and then made
their escape; These fellows are still at
large, and continue their bold depreda?
tions. Warrants have beou issued for
them for horse stealing, as it can be
proven that they are the partier who
stole the horses wo spoke of two weeks
ago. One of them, Bill Sartor, is one of
Governor Scott's pet penitentiary birds.
He was sentenced at the last court of
this County to two years' imprisonment
for stealing, but sajs he was "turned
out" of the penitentiary soon after, by
Governor Scott, we suppose, to continue
his nets of lawlessness. This is another
evidence of the utter uselessness of the
people to attempt to punish colored
scoundrels through a'proper course of
law. The Governor's pardon puts at de?
fiance the sentence of the court, and
turns looeo upon the people the most
desperate thieves and robbers, niter they
have been tried and convicted by a dis?
interested and legally constituted jury.
These Sartors, it seems, ore imitating
the example of the Lowreyf, of North
Carolina, and it is believed are organiz?
ing a gang similar to those outlaws.
Warrants for their arrest were placed
in the bauds of Special Deputy Sherill'
Air. W. L. Palmer, who was actively en?
gaged iu trying to ai rent them, and we
believe would have had them in the jail
io a short time; but just as his plans for
their capture were completed, he was ar?
rested by a United States Marshal under
the charge of conspiracy. It is said that
tho warrant for Mr. Palmer had been
issued some months before, but it looks
very strange that its service should have
been delayed until just at tho timo when
be was about to urreBb u gaug of despe?
rate thieving negroes. From this we
may infer that it will be dangerous for
any citizen of thia Couuty to make any
elTort to arrest these scoundrels.
Mr. Palmer, before his arrest, had un?
earthed- a large quantity of dry goods,
ready-made clothes, ito., which bad been
stolen by the gang, and deposited them
in the Sheriff's office at this place. Mr.
Cal. Hunter had identified most of thc
articles as belonging to him, but a num?
ber of fine couts .aud other goods were
detained in the Sheriff's office awaiting
their owner, until Wednesday night last,
when the office was broken into, through
the window, and all the goods taken out.
There is no due to the perpetrators of
the last burglary, bat there is little doubt
that the Sartor gang were at thu head of
We learn that six or eight stores iu this

I Union Times.
MORE OFFICIAL VISITORS.-Deputy
Marshals Maloney and Canton arrived in
our town, just after dark, on last Wednes?
day evening, having in charge, as a pri?
soner, Thomas PayBinger, ex-Sheriff of
Newberry. He was arrested at Martin's
Depot, iu this County, for some offence
against the United States; but it seems
that the aforesaid marshals were not on
thc hunt of Paysiuger, as they had no
warrant for him. He unfortunately,
however, crossed their path, and they
"took him in," baud cuffed him, and
brought, him along for company sake,
promising to produce the warrant when
they reached Newberry. Making mili?
tary arrests have grown old-its now. of
common occurrence in South Carolina;
so this little matter of giving each vic?
tim a pair of bracelets seems to bo re?
garded, by Government satraps, as indis?
pensable in giving new interest to such
procedures. Its a very long lane that
has no tarn.
We learn, also, that James H. Irby,
formerly of this District, was arrested in
Newberry recently, and carried to the
County jail hand-cuffed.
Our visitors left us on yesterday morn?
ing, carrying Abe .Simmons, colored, 1
with them as a prisoner. Abe is the
negro whom the "witness," spoken of
elsewhere, had the quarrel with. The
"wituesb" has doubtless carried his point
in part. "Let us have peace."
Since the above was put in type, wc
learn that the aforesaid marshals went
to the house of Dr. Thos. McCoy carly
yesterday morning, called for the Doctor,
and being informed by Mrs. MoOoy that
he was absent, having been called away
at a late hour the previous night, a tho?
rough search of the house was made,
but the Doctor was not found. The
shackled prisoner, Paysinger, was drag?
ged along by these humane (?) officers
on the search mentioned. Dr. McCoy,
it will be remembered, had just returned
home on bail, after five weeks' imprison?
ment. The oauldron still boils.
Ku KLUX HUNTERS.-We have had a
"nine days wonder." Our peaceful, law
abiding Connty, has been "invaded" by
deputy marshals and a few soldiers.
They have arrested Bev Mr. Ezell, his
sons, Ward and Leonard, from Laurens
and Spartaubnrg, and carried them to
Columbia. From information reoeived
by us, the conduct of tho marshals and
soldiers is censurable. Houses have
been searched without authority shown;
and, in a "oharge" made by them on
the work of a contractor on the Air-Line
Bailroad, his property was seriously in?
jured. "Let us have peace."

the desired "fuss aud feather" could be

which are always equal to an emergency.

INGENUITY OF BURGLARS.-There was
a burglary in an Albany jewelry store on
the night of the 2d instant, and one of
several skillful devices to whioh the bur
glars resorted to prevent detection while
operating upon the safe was the follow?
ing: On a work benoh on the Sonth side
of the shop a small looking-glass is
placed, in front of which is a gas-burner.
This small glass reflects the back of the
Bafo on the large glass, and those who
pass the store have a full view of it.
The burglars, to conceal their opera?
tions, bad prepared a ourtain made of
dark green muslin, across which black
musliu stripes were sewed, to represent
the bars on the back of the safe. This
maslin was tacked on Bmall wooden
strips after the burglars entered the pre?
mises, and was hung over the large mir?
ror. It was well calculated to deceive
the patroling watchman, and but for his
suspicions being aroused early in the
evening by observing two or three
strange characters in the vicinity, they
might have operated successfully. On
passing the store he noticed that the re?
flection of the back of the safe in the
glass was darker than uBual, and he
shook the door three or four times. Re?
ceiving no response from the inside
watchman, his suspicion that something
was wrong wab strengthened, aud, break?
ing open the doors, found that hiB infer?
ence hud been too long delayed, for the
robbers had retreated.- Worcester Spy.
AN ILLUSTRATION IN POINT.-The de?
votion of the English to etiquette waa
once illustrated by a humorist by an
anecdote of an Englishman who was
drowning, and who declined to grasp tbe
hand of a gentleman who tried to rescue
him, on the ground that he had not the
honor of his acquaintance. The condi?
tion of the South, whose personal and
political liberty and local self-govern?
ment are threatened with perpetual loss,
is as critical as was that of this viotim of
misfortune and of etiquette. The re?
fusal of the South to accept aid, because
it is extended through agencies once
alien and unsympathizing, would be
quite as ridiculous as that of the Eng?
lishman who would rather go to the
bottom cf the sea, than be saved from
death by a strange gentleman. The
Sonth don't mean, of itself, to be guilty
of any such folly. Others, who have
misled and sacrificed her before, may
attempt it again-and she may probably
be made a sad victim for continued
suffering in Hack-cloth and ashes; but
not, it is believed, by any act of her own
In a San Francisco court, a Mra. Za
blowski asked to be divorced from her
husband, basing ber petition upon his
habitual use of opium, whioh incapaci?
tated him for business and the support
of bis family. The bill was brought
under the statute allowing divoroe for
intemperance; but the court ruled that
the immoderate uso of opium is not in?
temperance within the meaning of the
statute. Perhaps not; but Judge Dwi?
ndle need not have supported his ruling
by saying that a contrary decision would
lead to divorces "for intemperance in
eating or any ordinary habits of life."
If a divorce should be granted on ac?
count of dram-drinking, it should equally
be granted for opium-chewing. Eating
too much has nothing to do with the
