London, January 15?1 P.M.?The
funeral of the late ex-Emperor of Franco
took plaoe at Ohiselhorst this morning.
Although 10 o'clock was the hour desig?
nated for the procession to move from !
the late residence of the late Emperor, it
was thirty minutes after that timo when
the hearse whioh was to convoy the re?
mains to the ohapel drew np in front of
the grand entrance of the mansion. A
deputation of Paris workmen, who were
to walk at the head of the procession,
arrived at the same time. They wore
immortelles iu their coats, and carried
wreaths of yellow flowers iu their hands.
On both Bides of the hearse were the
Imperial arms, surmounted oy the letter
"N." A great crowd, whioh stoadily
increased, surrounded the hearse. The
funeral procession started for tho chapel
at 11 o'clock, and moved in the following
order: A man bearing the tri-oolor,
borne on an ash stick, out at the last
moment before the cortege moved; the
deputation of workmen from Paris, with
uncovered heads, bearing their wreaths;
tho ohaplaia of the family, bearing aloft
a golden crucifix; the hearse, drawn by
eight' horses, driven by postillions, and
mourners, who numbered 800 in all, and
included the Prince Imperial, who went
uncovered; Prince Jerome Napoleon;
Prince Joaobitc; Prince Achillo; M.
Rouhor and many distinguished Impe?
rialists, English noblemen, Paris priests
The ?Prince Imperial was very pale,
and exhibited traces of the anguish he
has undergone. The Empress Eugenie
was too ill to attend the funeral. The
coffin was covered with immortelles and
violets. There was no funeral sermon at
tho chapel. The Bishop of Southwark
sang a requiem mass over the remains.
He was assisted by Father Goddard,
spiritual adviser to the late ex-Emperor,
and all priests who were ohaplains at the
Tqilleries during the reign of Napoleon.
Mr. Lutz, the organist.of St. George's
Cathedral, London, was present at the
ohapel with his choir, and conducted the
musical ?? portion of the services. The
remains were deposited' in.lhe saoristj?
which has been formed into a mortuary
ohapel, nntil the removal of the body to
Franee for final inter most. The pro?
cession Was very long, and the hearse
was at the chapel before the end of' the j
cortege had left tho family mansion. All
the carriages and pedestrians were three
abreast across the roadway, and in that
order proceeded- to the ohapel. The
Prinoe Imperial and Prince Napoleon re?
turned from the ohapel in one carriage.
They were cheered by the crowds'
through whioh they passed. At least
30.000 people gathered to witness the
American. tu ti Item.

The Outlaws.?From a gcutlemau
just returned from Robesou County, we
learu that a sheriff's posse, consisting of
Wm. Wilson, the slayer of the notorious
outlaw, Andrew Strong; Floyd Oxen
dine, who also figured somewhat iu that
tragic occurrence, and Wm. McCleaney,
went across the line into Marion County,
S. O, some time last week, in pursuit of
Stephen Lowrey aud John Lookleur, the
former being tho only remaining mem?
ber of the baud of outlaws of which tho
famous Henry Berry Lowrey was once
the leading spirit, und the latter being
accused of the murder of the McLeod
family, in Cumberland County, some
years ago. Mr. Wilson aud the others
returned ou Tuesday, und reported that
they came up with John Locklear at a
certain house iu Marion County, Lowrey
having disappeared before their arrival.
As the posse neared the bouse, Mr.
Wilson called to Locklear to come out,
when the latter replied by threatening to
shoot him, if he did not leave. The
party continued to advance, however,
und bad oome withiu a fow yards of the
bouse, when Locklear fired upon thorn,
shooting Floyd Oxendinu and wounding
him severely, though not dangerously,
in the neck, breast und hand, while, in
the midst of the confusion which ensued,
tho murderer escaped through the back
door end beat a hasty retreat. Mr. Wil?
son and party followed after the fugitive,
who was making his way towards his old
haunts in Bobesou County, and finally
succeeded in getting a warrant for his
crest from a magistrate by the name of
Lee, which was placed in tho bauds of a
special deputy. After a vigorous pur?
suit, the party finally camn up with
Locklear and succeeded in effecting bis
arrest, the special deputy formally deli?
vering tho prisoner iuto the hands of tho
posse from Roboeon County. Elated at
their success in securing at least one of
tho villainous desperadoes of .whom they
were in pursuit, Mr. Wilson and his
friends started homewards with their
prisoner, who had been securely ironed,
when, as they had reached a point within
about two miles of the line, they were
approached and halted by Sheriff Berry,
of Marion County, ncjompanied by De?
puty Sheriff A. P. Brigmau, formerly of
this city, who proceeded to arrest the
whole party, and made them retrace
theiir steps to Marion C. H. Here they
wero arraigned beforu Justice Leo, the
same magistrate who had issued tho war?
rant for the arrest of Locklear, when the
latter was unconditionally turned loose,
while Mr. Wilson and his party were
only released on the payment to tho she?
riff and magistrate aforesaid tho sum of
$641.90. ? Wilmington tilur, 12tU.

Arrest op W. H. Ettersom.?For
some time post, Sumter has been cursed
by the reaidenoe, in her limits, of thieves
of every grade, pattern, size, age, color
and variety, who lay their atioky hands
on everything that comes within their
reach, from a baby-rattle to a legislative
pay certificate. Cursed as the town has
been by this speciality in rascality, we
hoped that it would enjoy exemption
from unjust and unwarrantable arrests of
its citizens upon false and frivolous
charges, batched by malicious hireling
informers. We regret to record that bur
hope has proved fallacious, and that our
townsman, W. H. Epperson, was arrested
ou Wednesday, the 8th instant, for al?
leged violation of the revenue laws of
the United States, and unceremoniously
hustled off to Charleston, 'to answer
there the oharge preferred against him.
We are informed that the faots of this
outrage are as follows:
Mr. Epperson, some time last summer,
threw a lot of empty whiskey barrels,
the stamps ou which he forgot or ne?
glected to cancel, into his baok-yard,
among other rubbish, where they lay for
a long time, exposed to all kinds of wea?
ther, till discovered by a prowling, prying
detective, who pretended to believe that
they were placed there for- future use,
and to defraud the revenue. Mr. Epper?
son board nothing more of the matter,
uutil he was arrested the other day, upon
information given, as he supposes, by
this worthy and zealous functionary.
His arrest is an intolerable outrage, as
common sense will tell anybody that he
would never have thrown the' barrels out
in his yard, where everybody could see t
them, and exposed to tho weather, if he
had any intention or desire of using
them again for a fraudulent purpose.
It would be a glorious1 thing if pome
of these sneaking informers could be
caught while prowling- around the pre?
mises of honest men, taken to the near?
est mill-pond, and ducked into decency
or to death.?Sumter Neuss.

JU.-ST received, a lot of choice MINCE
number of colored hands were employed
in fixing the trestle work which had
been damaged by the accident end en*
deavoring to get the oars on the track,
when a very unfortunate circumstance
occurred. Mr. Barnes Wilkins, cine of
the section masters on the road, was
present and assisting in superintending
the work. He gave directions for a cer?
tain thing to be done, and upon the
hands not showing a disposition to more
very lively, he struck one of these, by
the name of John, on the back of the
head or neck with a spade he had in his
baud at tho moment.' The blow is said
to have been a very light one, apparent?
ly; bat no sooner was it given than the
unfortunate colored man dropped in his
tracks. Mr. Wilkina immediately went
to his assistance, and at bis direction,
the man was placed on a cotton bale,
when ho felt of his pulse, opened his
suiit bosom aud placed his hand over his
heart, and then called to one of the men
near him and told .hith to ran for a doc-"
tor. He then walked off hurriedly, and
has not been sson since. The body of
the poor fellow was cold and stiff in
death, not a muscle having been Jeen to
move or a breath escape him after the
infliction of the blow. It seems to be
the impression of all who know any?
thing of the oiroumstanoes, that it wsa
far from Mr. Wilkina' intention to inflict
serious injury upon the man, as he had *
shown'no signs of anger, and was always
considered an orderly and well-disposed
gentleman. Mr. W. resides at Gerro
Gordo. The colored man who was killed
is said to be a resident of Darlington, S.
C.? Wilmington Star.

knee. His injuries, though painful' and
seriouv, are yet not considered necessa?
rily dangerous. Capt. Griffin is at Fair
Bluff, under good treatment. The plows
of both engines were destroyed.
