The Last Arrest?Joe Crews Insti?
gates the Murder of Dn. Shell.?Cap?
tains Alley and Burnett arrested, on
Thursday evening'last, about 5 o'clock,
thirty-two miles below Greenville, in
Laurens County, John (.alias Shanghai)
Bolt (white) and lodged him in the
Greenville jail. He is charged with
being concerned in the murder of Dr.
Shell, of Laurens, in 18G8. When ar?
rested, ho was ploughing in his field.
When the officers started him from his
home, his wife said to him: "Now, John,
you reveal the whole story?I kn?w it,
and I will tell it, if you don't." John,
however, only states that he believes
Joe Crews and Adam Crews had tho
murder committed. He was recognized
by Wright Sullivan and Parks when car?
ried into jail, as one of the men they
had been plotting the murder with.
Wright Sullivan (colored) is charged
with the murder of Barton, of this
County, and of having been engaged in
several robberies here, and confesses to
be one of the gang who waylaid and
killed Dr. Shell: - He says ho was paid
$40 by the party to do bis part of tho
work, and that the murderous party was
led by Adam Crows in person. Abraham
Johnson! alias Dial, (colored,) is charged
with being connected with tho murdor
of Dr. Shell, and was arrested in Wash?
ington City. He is quito reticent, but
says: "It warn't all niggers who were
engaged in the killing of Dr. Shell."
The next is a" negro named Parks, who
admits that he was present at the murder
of Dr. Shell, and fired his gun in the
air, to get the promised reward. He
Jives a full statement, and claims that
oe Crews is the man who engaged the
party to commit the murder.
There are a few others to bo arrested,
and Captain Alley is looking after them.
At all events, the officers have already
sufficient evidence to convict Joe Crews
and his son, Adam Crews, of instigating
the murder, and they will be arrested
immediately, charged with the commis?
sion of tho horrible crime; and it may as
well be said here, the citizens of Laurens
have never been wrong in their suspicion
of the instigator of the murder of Dr.
Shell. Tboy liavo predicted during the
pasVseven years that Joe Crews put up
the job. They now have the most con?
clusive evidence. Wo have heard it
from the lips of some of these prisoners
ourself. Tney are suffering in jail for
the acts of Joe Crows, and there is no
telling how^m^ch trouble lie ha? brought
upon the poor," unfortunate negroes.
His time has now come! It will ho recol?
lected that Joe Crews has caused to be
arrested a number of the prominent citi?
zens of Llurens at various times charged,
on tho most flimsy' evidence, of Ku KIux
murders. He JinS teTtified and run off
a large number of persons?all of which
it has long beeji supposed, was done to
cover up his own bloody tracks; but ho
is now exposed to the public as a mon?
ster of the deepest dye, and it is to be
hoped that he will bo punished in pro?
portion to theso great crimes. The ne?
groes of Laurens, who ho has ruled with
an iron rod, and intimidated and made
to do his murderous work, will no doubt
feel great relief nt having his bad influ?
ence over them broken. He has caused
the negroes great trouble, and bos
brought several of them to bitter grief,
and they aro now satis tied ho is not their
friend. The preliminary trial of John
Bolt, for the murder of Dr. Shell, took
place before Trial Justices McBoe and
Sherman, yesterday, and ho was com?
mitted to jail. The evidence elicited is
all that is necessary to fasten the instiga?
tion of this murder on the Hon. (!) Joe
Mr. L. Drucker, an old resident of
Charlotte, N. C, died a fow days ago.
The burglar who murdered Mr. Schute
in Brooklyn has been arrested.
A telegraphic line to connect Newberry
and LanrenB is contemplated.
