Thb Btokeb Case.?The case of E.
F. Stokes, Esq., being called, he ap?
peared, and took hia seat at the bar..
Ho was wrapped in hie cloak and his
long hair, silvered over, hang over hin
shoulders, giving him a venerable and
solemn appearance. . Judge Co oka ad?
dressed him in a very feeling and
solemn tone, saving: "Mr. Stoibs, I
have sent for yon this morning with
the view of making an effort onee
more to the end that you may bo re?
lieved from your imprisonment. The
Supreme Court has sustained the
action of this Court, and the Conrt
thonght yon would comply, bnt you
have not, from some cause or other.
It appeared that there might be somo
ground for the Conrt to have you dis?
charged, and it felt disposed iu give
yon the benefit of any doubts. The
board of pbysioians have made their
examination, and under that return, I
cannot discharge you. I have had
yon bronght into oourt to give yon one
more opportunity to come npon the
stand and obey the law, and not set it
at defiance by setting np your own
judgment against tho highest tribunal
of the land, the Supreme Court. Your
case has been the subject of meditation
by the Conrt day and night. It seems
strange that you set np your judg?
ment against the Conrt. I give yon
one more opportunity; soy yea or nay.
They say yon have the ability to ma?
nage your pecuniary affairs, and the
report shows further that they regard
you as being capable of taking care of
your person. If you comply with the
requirements of the law, you will be
discharged. If you refuse, it will be
the solemn duty of the Court to re?
mand you into the hands of the Sheriff.
If you go to jail, your health may be
impaired, or yon may die; but the law
must be obeyed."
After attending to some other busi?
ness, Judge Oooke again addressed tho
defendant in these words: "Mr.
Stokes, yonr silence indicates thut you
will not comply. It is, no doubt, a
source of unpleasantness to you to be
paraded through the streets, coming
to and returning from the Court, in the
charge of the Sheriff. You will, there?
fore, be remanded until you signify
yonr willingness to comply with the
law; and when you feel inclined so to
do, if you will inform the Court, it
will consider your case."
Mr. Stokes rose from bin scat and
waa escorted by Sheriff Southern to
the door, when he was taken charge of
by Mr. Harrison and escorted back to
his quarters in the jail, the Court in?
structing the Sheriff to grant the
prisoner no moro privileges than was
allowed to other prisoners, inasmuch
as the County paid his expenses.
On motion of Whitner Symmes, act?
ing Solicitor, it was ordered, that inas?
much as there were no grounds con?
tained in the return of the Board of
Examining Physicians that would au?
thorize the discharge of Mr. Stokes, it
was ordered that he be remanded.

The LcniD Glare op Ikcbkdiarx
Flames.?In Edgefield, the lurid glare
of incendiary flames has becomo well
nigh as familiar to ns as tbo sunlight
of heaven. Scarcely a day passes,
literally, that we do not hear of some
infamoua incendiary fire within the
limits of onr County. Women and
ohildren tremble with apprehension
throughout tho night; and men have
begun to sleep in their gin-houses an
naturally as in their chambers. Wo
make a list of these fires, to bear us
out in what we affirm. Since the l?tb
or 20th of November, when the mill of
B. F. Maya, Esq., was burned, some
eleven or twelve other oitizons within
a radius of twenty miles, havo been
similarly damaged. Only four or live
days ago, the handsome dwelling bouse
of Col. B. M. Talbert, two miles from
Rehobotb, was entirely destroyed.
This was the old family homestead of
the Talberts, and the bouse was one of
the best in Edgefield County. Col.
Talbert'a loss is fully 83,000. Mr.
Press Blackwell, of the Dark Corner,
has lost a large store Lonso, and a
barn containing a large quantity of
corn and fodder. His loss is esti?
mated at $1,000. Mr. James Moss has
lost a gin-bouse, with considerable cot?
ton and cotton seed. Mr. ?. W. Dow
ty, living over on tbo Western side,
has lost a gin-bouse and four bales of
cotton. Dr. Bushton, of tho Bethle?
hem section, has lost a barn or gin
house, with a considerable quantity of
cotton. In this house was cotton be?
longing to a negro who had votad the
Conservative ticket. A citizen, named
Piper, of the Cloud's Creek country,
has lost a cotton house, with cottou
and forage. Mr. George Strother's
bla8ksmith shop has been burned.
Mr. Harry Bsel, of the Duntonsville
neighborhood, has lost a orib or barn,
with some 125 bushels of corn. Mr.
Soott Allen bas lost eight or nine balos
of cotton, and with difficulty saved his
gin-house. Mr. John Hollingsworth
has lost two out-bnildings, with two
valuable vehicles. In only one of
these cases is a white man suspeotod,
and he is now in our jail. In no other
case has an arrest been mado. Iu tho
face of this state of things, is it any
wonder that Col. Bacon should have
introduced his lynch law resolution in
the meeting of Monday last? Or that
our people should have endorsed tho
resolution? Of all lawless demons
these honse-bumers are certainly the
most lawless. In fact when yon have
this sort of lawlessness to deal with, the
best way is to seize the perpetrators by
tho throat and waste no words with
them. Intense caution and grim pa?
tience are not always marks either of
wisdom or statesmanship.

The Navy.?The report of Secre?
tary Robeson Bhows the navy to be in
a remarkably efficient condition, con?
taining 1?3 war vessels, with an arma?
ment of 1,251 gone. Twenty-six of
these vessels have sail-power only,
leaving a Bteatn navy of 137 vessels of
all classes. One-half of the steam navy
adapted to orniBing is now in aotnal
sorviee. He recommends a gradual
and constant addition to the navy, to
supply the places of worn-out vessels.
The Secretary refers briefly to the Vir?
ginias affair, the yellow fever at Pensa
cola, gives an extended review of the
great naval drill, and alludeB favorably
to the public marine schooi system, A
novel feature of the report is an ac?
count of an effort to secure the emi?
gration of Icelanders to Alaska. A
commission of Icelanders was taken to
Alaska on the steamer Portsmouth.
They made areoonnoissaneo, and havo
just returned to San Francisco. The
Seoretary believes they arc well pleased,
and wili return home and recommend
an itnmediato emigration of those
hardy fishermen and sailors, who, if
they do not like Alaska, will doubtless
Bettle in the neighboring Territories
tive Seuer, of Virginia, will introduce
at an early day a bill to make tho Cali?
fornia election law national?that is,
to provide that all ballots shall be
similar, and devoid of distinguishing
features, and in this way to prevent
intimidation and interference at the
polls. This plau has much to com
in end it, but it will, doubtless, be op?
posed by those who havo been accus?
tomed to manipulate the colored vote.
An impudent oarpet-bagger named W.
T. Clarke, elected to Congress from
tho Galveston (Texas) District by the
negro vote some years ago, it is said,
had printed in Now York prior to the
eleclion ballots with backs like playing
cards, and tho negroes were duly
warned to vote only "Do playin* card
iickei." It Mr. Seucr'a bill becomes
a law there will be an end to such de?
vices as this, and the sprend eagles and
portraits of Lincoln, Grant and other
celebrities will no more grace tho bal?
Heart Disease.?It is somewhat of
a coincidence that Mr. Gardner, who
was tho lute Mayor Havemeyor's ap?
pointee as Commissioner of Docks,
shouid die as suddenly, on Friday, ns
tho Mayor did on last Monday. He
was going to his homo, when he fell to
the ground and expired. The preva?
lence of heart disease among promi?
nent public men and merchant*, in
New York, is to bo noted. The deaths
of Mr. Sturgea and Mr. Talbot, last
week, wero very sudden, though they
were carried off with pneumonia.
