JEFF DAVIS' CAPTURE.
His Flihht From Richmond as
Remembered .By HistBody
The Hoop Skirt a Fiction.
Cor. New Vork Herald.)
' Kilkioh, Jf. C, Nov. 17, 1881.
James II. Jonoa. colored, is at pres
ent iailer of tho county jail in this
city and also a member of the Board
of Aldermen. During the war ho was
tho body servant ot Jeflerson J'avis
and drove the carriage of the l'resi
dent of the late Confederate btates at
tbe time of the lattcr's flight from
Richmond. Ho was constantly with
him thereafter up to the time of the
capture in Wilcox county, Georgia,
having driven tho carriage through
Virginia, North and !outh Caroliua
and a portion of Georgia; was made a
prisoner with Davis aud sent to
Fortress Monroe, being subsequently
released. Jones is a man of seme in
telligence, who wields considerable in
fluence over his race, ana, aitnougn a
Republican, ho is ever ready to say a
kind word for bis former employer.
He is well thought ot by the white
people ot this community, and has a
good reputation for veracity and in
tegrity. Being apprised of the facta
above related a Herald correspondent
approached Mr. Jones with the hope
of securing some facts connected with
the memorable flight from Richmond
and the subsequent capture of the
President of the Confederacy not
heretofore made public. Nor was he
disappointed. It would perhaps be
well to preface the story with the
statement that, although the servant
of Jefferson Davis, the narrator of
what follows was never his slave,
Jones having been born free.
"I had Mr. Davis' horfe saddled, in
readiness to proceed on his way(i and
had thrown bis holster of pistols
across the saddle.
FIRING OVER T3E I1RANCII.
"Mr. Davis lay down without re
moving his clothes in the early part of
the nwht to rest. iNotlung occurred
to indicate an attack until just before
dawn, when I heard firing over the
branch. I immediately hurried to the
spot where Mr. Davis was sleeping.and,
arousing him, told him what 1 had
heard. He came out of the tent, and
we saw some cavalrymen whom we
recognized as regular Federal troopers
deploying around as they approached
tbe camp. I bad tied the horso to he
used by Mr. Davis near the road some
distance from the camp, and, as before
stated, his holler of pistols was se
cured to the saddle on this horse. It
was, then, an unfortunate discovery
for us that we realized the fact that
the troopers were approaching from
that direction and were already near
the spot where the horse was secured.
It was therefore imppossible for Mr.
Davis to reach his horse and he was in
a predicament indeed. Mrs Davis bad
implored her husband to leave imme
diately upon learning that the attack
ing party were regulars, but he hesi
tated and so lost some precious mo
ments. When he at last decided upon
flight he was compelled to start in an
opposite direction from that intended,
on foot and without arms.''
TUE RO CALLED "DISGUISE."
Here tbe Herald correspondent in
tei rupted the narrative by asking him
if he knew of his own knowledge how
Mr. Davis was drc?sed and if there
was any truth in the stories which
have been published statins that be
was attired in woman's clothes, wear
ing a hoop skirt at tho time of his cap
xertainiy, i Know oi my own
knowledge," he replied. "I was by
bis sido lrom tbe time I awoke him in
his tent to the moment of his capture
If any one ought to know I should.'
He then continued as follows:
"Mr. Davis, at that season of the
year, wore a sleeveless waterproof
light overcoat. Mrs. Davis hail or,e
almost exactly like it same material,
only the cut was a little different.
After deciding to altemnt an ci-cane.
he returned to the tent for his over
coat, and in the hurry and confusion
of the moment it was very dark in
the tent picked up his wife's instead
of his own coat, and. as he emerged
from the tent, Mrs. Davis thought
fully threw a shawl over his shoulders
Ho was wearinchis wife's 'raelan' and
the shawl over bis chouldcrs when hf
was challenged by the trooper, as will
L - F I ' 1 1 ,
oe more iuny cxpiaineu lurtner on.
"Then he didn't have on a bonnet
and hoopskirt? '
Jones laughed and seemed verv
muoh amused at this Question. "No.
indeed," he replied; "that hoopskirt
bonnet story is the most thoroneblv
unadulterated piece of Action I ever
"Mr. Davis," continued the narra
tor, 'had not gone twenty-five yard
when a cavalryman galloped up ami
commanded him to halt. Mr. Davi
gave a defiant reply to this order as ba
advanced toward tho horseman, throw
iagtliai shawl and 'raglan' from bis
shoulders as he did so. Mr. Davis
did not have a weapon of defense of
any description, and this action on his
part looked a little foolhardy to me at
first, but he had a motive foracting as
he did, which be altorward explained.
"As he approached tbe cavalryman
the latter leveled a pistol at the Con
federate President. Mrs. Davis, who
was anxiously watching hr husband,
seeing this demonstration of the horse
man, rushed up to Mr. Davia and
threw her arms around him and plead
ed for his Ufa. By this act Mrs. Da
vis perhaps accomplished two results
she may have saved her husband's
me; sue certainly prevented his escape.
Mr. Davis' intention. n ho (nrirn..io
staieu, wnen lie advanced upon the
trooper who ordered him to halt, was
to take the chances of escaping a death
wound from tbe hands of the cavalry
man and aft;r he had fired to put bis
hand under the loot of the trooper,
tumble him off of the horse on the oth
er side, mount the animal himself and
attempt an escape. Had Mrs. Davis
remained pwsive he might and he
might not have accomplished bis ob
ject. Instantaneous action was, how
ever, nectary, and Mr. Davis quick
y realized that tho opportunity Wa.
lost the moment his wile impeded his
movements, and relinquishing tho idea
he quickly turned back and passed o'n
to tho camp fire i was up making
coffee for breakfast when tho firinc
over the branch oecnrred, and there
fore heard tho first shots, when I im

command was also obeyed, when the
passengers were stood in lino hands

Tho 9th day of November is in this
oamtal a mcmorablo one in two par
ticulars. In the first place it is the
birthday of His Royal Highness, fl
Princo ot Wales, who, having been
born on tho tub of November,
1841, completes this day his fortieth
year. . Jlo has boon married eigutccn
vears. and by his consort, tho Princess
Alexandria (daughter of the King of
Donmark) has issuo,two sons and three
danhtors. so that independently of
tho ohildren of tho other mombcis of
the royal family, the succession to the
crown ot England is well seourod.
Tho l'rinec of Wales is not the eldest
of tho (Jueen's children, being tho
junior by eno year of the Princess
Royal, who in the ccurso of natural
ovonts (whioU cannot now be very
long delayed) will be the Empress of
Germany, luo heir apparent, besides
being Prince ot Wales, is also Duke
of Saxony. Duke of Cornwall, Duke of
Rotbsay, Earl of Dublin, Lord of the
Isles, a Field Marshal in the army
(tho highest military rank), a Knight
of the Garter, etc., etc. I question
whether, if put to it, tho Prinoo him
self coald remember all his own titles
at short notice the lato Duke of Wel
lington, who had a prodigous string of
titles and orders of knighthood, British
and foreign, confessed that he could
not do so. and had to refer on being
questioned to the proper officials whoso
business it is to take note ot such dis
But it is pre eminently as Lord
Mayor's day that tho 9th day
of November is especially dis
tinguished in the minds of tbe
inhabitants of London. On this day
I ho Chief Magistrate enters upon his
official career, which endures but for
one brief year. On this day tho in
coming Lord Mayor goes in state, ac
companied by a long procession, from
the Guildhall in the city to the courts
at Westminster Hall, and after the
Sresentation of His Lordship to Her
. I ajesty's Judges, the procession re
turns by a different route to tho city.
Dense crowds line tho streets and
flags, V enctian masts and triumphal
arohes majte a festive display. The
procession consists of all tbe leading
corporation officials in carriages, tbo
Lord Mayor in tbe city stage coach,
the ex-Lord Mayor, the Sheriffs, de
tachments of troops, the fire brigades,
banner bearers, military bands and so
forth. This year a special feature of
the procession will bo tbe carrying ot
the banner of the United States, es
corted by a Guard of Honor, and
while at a given point, the baml-i will
strike up "Tbe Star Spangled Ban
ncr." This is no doubt intended as a
complimentary return for the saluta
ion of the British flag at York town,
t Tho proceedings on Lord Mayor's,
Day aro appropriately brought to a
conclusion by tbe grand banquet given
in the Guildhall of the city of Lon
don, at which the Lord Mayor wel
comes his guests, the Prime Minis
ter, the Cabinet, the Lord Chancellor
and the Judges, tho Commander in
Chief and sons of the famous men
of the land. As Parliament is at this
period of the year eut of session, tho
speech of the l'irst Lord' of the Trea
sury in rcsponso to tho toast of
his health given by the Lord Mayor
is looked forward to year by year with
the greatest interest, and though the
Minister for the timo being usually
contrives to avoid betraying the se
Crete of the Cabinet over which be
exercises control, still these speeches
are pcucraliy regarded as political
manifestoes. Somo of tbo best re
membered utterances of Lord Pal
tnerston. Earl Ru-scl, Lord BeaconB
lielJ ana Mr. Gladstone have been
made at these civic banquets.
The Lord Mayor of London for the
year of 1881-2 U the Right Honorable
John W'hittaker Ellis. The title ol
Right Honorable is given to the Lord
Mayor ty virtue of his holding the
oflioo ot Privy Councillor cx officio.
Unlike other Privy Councillors, how
ever, he drops tho titlo on the cxpira
tion of hi year of office, and from
the Right Honorable the Lord Mayor
becomes this day next year plain Mr.
Alderman Ellis. But there is always
the hope for a Lord Mayor of receiv
ing a title from the Queen during his
occupancy of tho civic chair. Should
any important event, occur, notably a
visit of royalty to the city, it is usual
for the Lord Mayor to be created a
Baronet and the two Sheriffs ma le
Knights. Tho Thanksgiving visit r.f
tbe rrinco ol Wales to St. Pauls
Cathedral on his recovery from fever,
the opening Blatkfriars Bridge and
the Holborn Viaduct, the visits to
the city of tbe Sultan of Turkey and
the Viceroy of Efypt, and other sim
ilar events all resulted in the bestowal
of . these honors. Of the twenty
five members of which the Court of Al
dermen is composed, sixteen of whom
have already served the offico of Lord
Mayor, there are 4 Baronets, 8
Knights, and 7 Members of Parlia
ment. One is a banker, one a stock
broker, and all tbo others aro con
ncctcd with tko trade and commerce
of the city. The present Lord Mayor
is the bead of a fir to of auctioneers
and land agents.
The jurisdiction of the Lord Mayor
does not extend beyond tbe walls of
the city proper which is in size, and
actually resident inhabitants, only a
small portion of the great metropulia
which with tho city contains nearly
four millions of peculation. . The me
tropolis outside the city walls is not
incorporated hut divided into metro
politan boroughs, each returning two
Members of Parliament the city
itself sending foir representatives to
the House of Commons of whom
only one i-upparta the present Liberal
Government the remaining three arc
Conservatives. The Conservatism of
tho city may in part be due to a desire
to uphold the dignity and delusive
ness of the corporation of London, it
being generally understood that an
item in tho Liberal programme is a
plan to invade tbe ancient vested
rights of the city, and possibly to cive
charters of incorporation with mayors
of tneir own to tho borout'lts outside
of the city walls.
I may add In conclusion that the
Chief Mafistrate of every city and
town in England and Ireland is a
snnplo Mayor, the Lord Mayor of
London, the Lord Mayor of V ork and
the Lord Mayor of Dublin being the
exceptions, la Scotland, where the
head of an incorporated burgh is en

IWOLS AT A WLDDIXG FEAST.
The Bibulous Sou ol' the Bride
"Wlns;ed" by Ilia fctep
IHlhcr. Portsmouth, Oino, Nov. 18.
News has been received here of a case
of pif'ols and whisky at a Kentucky
wcd.'..g in Greenup county, a dozon
mile, nuth of here, with a rosult that
is not. likely to commond tho admixture
to general use. Tho occasion was the
second slay's celobration of the wed
ding of Mr. Allen Richards to Mrs.
Ellen Burke, Tho bridegroom was a
widower, over fifty 5'ears old, a farmer.
and withal an influential oiiizcn. The
brido was a widow, past the middle
ago, and too niotncr or a son scout
twenty years old. Last Thursday the
wedding took place, and all the young
pconle f ar and near feasted and danced
on the occasion. On tho farms in Ken
tucky tho primitive custom of two
dava festivities at weddines is main
tained, and accordingly the "infair,"
as tho second day's oclebration of such
ovents is called, was observed in this
case, and the participants wcro mainly
composed of tboso who had
been tho wedding guests
Usually when tho marrying
parties nro young and the parents of
tho brideeroom are livine. it occurs
at the house of such parents. When
the bridegroom has no parents living
or within reach, as in this instance, no
rulo holds except that tho infair
must bo given by some one. This
time it was at the house of the bride.
and that was tho scene of gayety and
pleasoro on last Wednesday night un
til near midnight It is generally un
derstood that there was a liberal Bup
ply of old Kentucky bouibon whisky
consumed on the occasion. One ol
the merriest guests was Samuel Burko.
son of the bride, who as tho evoning
wore on drank his stepfather drunk.
lsy the time midnight arrived the ef
fect of tho liquor was visible on some
of those present. Samuel and his
stepfather were observed by the guests
to step out doors after an animated
convcrsatiorVbut nothing was thought
of tho circumstances until a pistol
shot was beard in the yard, then
another and then Bhot answering hot

silence. After Mrs. Ellen Burke had
been mado tho bride of Allen Rich
ards, she saw her own edn, Satnacl,
boroe in bclore her with a mortal bul
lot wound in his shoulder made by
her husband's pistol. The mother's
instinct -outweighed the oath of the
bride at the altar and Mrs. Richards,
in a rage, drove from her presencothe
man whom thirty hours before she
had sworn to stay by and love until
death parted them. No arrest has

How It Looks From a Louisville
I ho pool formed last summer to
control the Memphis & Charleston,
has succeeded. At the recent meeting
in lluntsville it elected a Board of

That Memphis should look with
favor on the sccme is not straneo. for
the road has hcretolorc only served as
a feeder to what is called the Cole svs

It may be taken for granted that the
Louisville & Nashville Company will
have nothing to do with tho road until
the lease is annulled.
Judgo Bruce was asked yesterday if
ho had examined tho lease, lie said
be had, but that his opinion of it was
not tor tho public, but lor the Dirco
tors of the Louisville & Nashville;
that tbe examination was mado as the
attorney of the Louisville & Nashville,
it is a pericctiy legitimate surmise
that tho weight of leeal opinion has
been to tho enect that the lease can
not stand, or tho pool would not have
gone as tar as it has done.
