Too Fond of Pork. Harrison Sweat, lrecd
nian, was brought into town on Tuesday, by a
retinue of attendants, who seemed to be particu
larly careful of his health, and who was placed as
n boarder with Sherifl Ray uutil the doctors of
the Court of Pleas and Quarter Sessions shall
convene and make up a prescription to suit his
ease. Harrison's larder ran low in the meat line,
to replenish which he committed a raid on Mr.
W. J. Holleman's pig-sty, and took away one of
its finest and fattest occupants. Mr. Holleman
got on the track and found the dead porker in
Harrison's possession, took him betore Esq. J. Q.
Williams, where he owned up, and was sent by
that civil functionary to thecounty hotel, as above
stated. Harrison, whose euvname is Sweat, will

BT OUR OWN SPECIAL REPORTER.
Trial of Major John H. Gee.
THURSDAY, Aran, 19, 18CC.
Gen. James G. Martin was cross examined. On
the order from Richmond for a guard for the pri
son at Salisbury, there, was reported from SCO to
1000 men ; Freeman's battalion and Hoke's regi
ment was there when he got there. v ltness, in
answer to questions, gave his views in regard to
the number of men necessary to form the regular
guard at the prison. The troops at Salisbury had
no other duty but that connected with theprison ;
of the numbers seut there, many got sick and
others went home, so there were never enough to
take out fatigue parties to cut wood about 200
men per day reported to Maj. Gee for guard duty,
at first a guard was sent with a party of prisoners
to cut wood, but afterward the guard got the
wood themselves, preferring it to guarding out
prisoners for the purpose guard had no quarters
while witness was there, except barns and stables.
Witness stated the difficulties that lay in the way
of erecting shelters for the guard or the prisoners;
want of axes aud of teams and the distance of the
necessary timbers from the grounds good teams
were taken from the Q. M. at Salisbury and brok
en down ones mt in their place there was au
thority by act of Congress to impress teams under
certain circumstances ; Maj. Gee had not this au
thority. The prison covered land owned by the
government ; never knew of any application to
enlarge the enclosure beyond the space owned by
the government. There was no order to give less
rations to the prisoners than to the gnard, that
witness knew of -the officer commanding the de
partment or the staff officers of superior rank bad
the command over the commissary aud quarter
master of the post ; they were not subject to the
control of the officer commanding the troops.
Maj. Gee had absolute command only of the de
tails daily furnished him by the commander of the
troops, and of the officers immediately connected
with the prison don't think he had auy control
over the surgeons.
Witness, in answer to questions, gave his opin
ion on several points in connection with the pri
son government, the proper action under certain
contingences, not varying from what had previ
ously been elicited.
J. Allen Brown, sworn was telegraph operator
at Salisbury in 1864, during the time the large
number of prisoners were there recollects send
ing telegraphic despatches to Richmond for Maj.
Gee these dispatches urged the authorities not
to send prisoners to Salisbury that they could
not be accommodated these dispatches were sent,
either to Gen. Gardner or to Maj. Andrews, don't
remember , certainly they werejvery urgent, In
one he said, " Fof Cod's sake do not send any
more prisoners." Witness wrote some of the dis
patches at the dictation of Maj. Gee.. Prisoners
continued to be sent, notwithstanding these ap
peals. ; - ;:-. ,
Major Myers also sent frequent dispatches to
Richmond, asking for supplies, that he had nearly
run out and needed them badly. In the cross
examination, witness stated that some of the
telegrams of Maj. Gee were sent before and some
after the prisoners were sent there.
John A. Fuqua, sworn ; was sent to Salisbury
in May, 1804; was second in command of the
post, was inspector. There was no change made
in the prison regulations when Maj. Geo came
there and took command of the prison ; the ord
ers in regard to regulations were issued from
Richmond, by these regulations all correspond
ence between the prisoners and persons outside,
was forbidden; this was the case both before and
after Maj. Geo came there.
Before the prisoners were sent there from
Richmond, the guard consisted of Freeman's bat
talion, of three companies, bnt it was soon in
creased by the arrival of other regiments these
were mostly senior reserves and junior reserves
they were mostly indifferent soldiers, ignorant of
discipline and drill, and the officers were of the
same class. "Witness occupied a room at the
head-quarters had kuown many persons to be
permitted to visit persons in the prison and to
take in provisions, through the oflicer of the day
this was frequently done there was no discrimi-
uation made between civil prisoners and prisoners
of war. There was a man detailed to attend and
sec that the rations for the prison were taken
safely from the commissary store to the cook of
The examination was here suspended, and the
Commission adjourned to 10 o'clock to-morrow.
Another Speerh by the President.
Washington, April 18. The President
to-nirht addressed a dense assemblage of
soldiers and sailors and others, who compli
mented him with a serenade.
He said that lie cared not for his slander
ers, whom he characterized as the j'oul irieljs
of sin. The rebellion had been put down,
and did we, lie asked, shed so much blood,
and make so many sacrifices lor the purpose
of destroying the States? No it was to
preserve the States under the Constitution
and in the union of the States. He repeat
ed : " We toiled not to break down the Uni
on but to preserve it. In time of war, we
have the right to strike and cripple, and re
duce to subjection, but in time ot peace, the
converse course is the right one, and we must
rebuild the cities restore the villages re
new agriculture and encourage all the .arts
and industrial pursuits. The soldier from
the private to the Commanding General
knows better what should lie done than the
closet politician and the humanitarian."
' Let us," he said, " make every effort to
restore the relations which heretofore existed
between the Federal government and all the
States. There is now no enemy against the
Denying the right of a State to secede, he
now, as heretofore, took his stand both
against secession and consolidation, and in
tended to maintain his policy.
The President was frequently interrupted
by applause, which showed that the soldiers
ami sailors present, heartily endorsed his
Washington-, April 18. The Senate to
day resnmed the consideration of the bill for
the relief of certain naval contractors.
The bill to protect military officers from
the consequences of any acts performed in
their official capacity, was also iliscus: ed.
The House resumed the consideration of
the bill to increase the regular army.
Bonds Restored to the New Orleans Banks.
WAsmxoTOK, April 18. The Attorney
General having recommended that the bonds
captured by General Sheridan, at Shreve
port, which had been deposited by the New
Orleans Banks with the State Auditor of
Louisiana, be returned to the present State
Auditor, the Secretary of the Treasury lias
telegraphed Governor Wells that he will
cause the bonds which may be identified as
belonging to the Banks, to be delivered to
the State Auditor, or to any duly authorized
agent, at Washington, or w ill send the same
by express to the auditor, upon receiving ad
vices from the Governor, at the risk of the
State. There are said to be about two mil
lions of these bonds.
From Washington Internal Revenue.
Wasuixotox, April 17. It is expected
that the committee of ways and means will
this week report an amendatory internal rev
enue bill, by which the taxes on many arti
cles will be considerably reduced with a view
to encourage manufactures, while other ar
ticles will be entirely relieved. The receipts
from this source of revenue have largely ex
ceeded the estimates.
Ji.iss Meeting of Soldiers and Sailors Eseiting
A mass meeting of soldiers and sailors
took place to-night, the Assembly Rooms be
ing densely crowded. The objects were to
promote such measures ns will insure the
equalization of bounties, just pension laws,
and appointments to positions- under the
government, and all other matters atlecting
the rights and interests of the soldiers and
sailors of the country. Gens. Garfield and
Smith, of the House of Representatives, hav
ing made speeches in furtherance of their
object, General Schenck, also of the House,
responded at length to the resolutions which
had been adopted, and said from the first
till now ho would not compromise with
traitors. The rebels were down and he
would keep them so until they gave some ev
idence of repentance, and that they would
unite in upholding the flag, in defence of
which there had been so much sacrifice of
loyal life and treasure. He characterized as
miserable scoundrels those who had attemp
ted to overthrow the best government on.
earth. If Jefferson Davis is to be remem
bered and punished as one of the leaders of
the rebellion, he would not forget those who
were educated at West Point, and if there
was a second sour apple tree, he did not see
why Robert E. Lee should not meet the same
fate. These remark were greeted with deaf
ening applause. Colonel McKee, of Ken
tucky, a member of the House, said there
should be no compromise. The test oath
should never lie repealed, and the govern
ment should be kept in the hands of loyal
men. He did not mean by loyalty those
who were not merely obedient to the consti
tution and the laws, but those who fought
the rebellion. Col. Stillwell, of Indiana, and
other members of the House of Representa
tives, addressed the meeting, the last named
gentleman saying that he had no doubt that
the present Congress would equalize the
The following are some of the resolutions
adopted by this meeting:
Resolved, That we fully concur in the often-
repeated declatation of the President of the
L mted States that ''treason is a crime, and
ought to be punished ;" and we have been
waiting most patiently lor a piactical appli
cation of the principle to the leaders of the
Resolved, That this meeting, composed as
it is of soldiers and sailors who have strug
gled against the herculean effort to subvert
our institutions and destrov the Drecious
jewel of civil liberty, desire to unite in bear
ing icsiimonyiagainst tue horrid atrocities ot
the leaders of the late so-called Confederate
States and army : that its head and front.
Jefferson Davis, should be held up to the ex-
ccration of all persons of all nations who. are
imbued with the principles Of Christianitv
and of common humanity ; - and that lie f
snouia ue-arraigned, tried, and it round
guilty, puffer" the extreme penalty for. his
crime. s " . .---''. ' ""
Resolved, That we hereby express our -unqualified
disapproval of any attempt to re
store rebels to power ; and earnestly protest
against the admission to a seat in Congress
of any Representative or Senator from States
lately in rebellion who is unable to 'take
what is known as the "test oath," and it
would be an insult to every Union soldier in
the Republic to allow men whose hands are
yet red with the blood of their comrades to
legislate for them, and for the wives and
children of the gallant dead who fell on the
battle -field or were atrociously starved or
murdered in Southern prisons.
llesoleed, That, in the opinion of this
meeting, no State lately in rebellion should
be allowed to come back into practical work
ing relations with loyal States until they
have given unmistakable evidence of a de
sire to cherish the Union and protect the
great principles of civil liberty, which they
so lately attempted to destroy.
Resolved, That it is the desire of this meet
ing that, if any of the benefits asked for
should be conferred by Congress, no distinc
tion shall be made between soldiers or sailors
on account of color.
The Norfolk Riot.
An inquest has been held over the bodies
of Robert and Charlotte Whitehurst, recent
ly killed in Norfolk. A part of the evidence
is as follows :
Marshal Capps I was passing through
Nicholson street with three colored women
in my carriage ; they requested me to stop to
see the procession ; I stopped the carriage,
and was leaning against the pole ; a colored
man was lying in the road, between the road
and ditch ; I took him to be drunk ; two
colored men came along and told him to get
up, that the procession was coming along ;
he refused to get up, and told them to go
away lrom ttierc, damn black sons ot , or
he would shoot them ; or if they did not get
away he would kill them. I turned towards
the stand to see who was speaking to the
colored population; a pistol went off; I
looked again and saw a black man jump up
and cry, " Oh Lord : oh Lordy I" he was the
one who tried to get the drunken man up ;
'my belief is that the negro who was drunk
shot him, for he told him if he did not go
away he would shoot liiui ; when he fell, the
negroes from the stand rushed towards Nich
olson street crying, "Rally I rally, boys ! and
kill a white son of a wherever vou find
him !" they all rushed towards the side
walk ; I turned my carriage and got out of
the wav, and drove towards C hurch street ;
then the crowd of negroes had headed up a
white man ; who he was I do not know ; I
only know they were in pursuit ot some one;
I drove towards Mr. Collinaud stopped and
looked back, and saw two negroes dragging
a man between them ; they were headed oif
bv a party at the corner ot Nicholson street.
who turned them toward the old field ; I
know both the men ; the man that was kill
ed was the man they had between the two
horses; I heard tiring at a house on Nichol
son street, as I arrived on Church street with
Susan Fuller, colored I was at Mrs. White-
hurst's door yesterday, Mondavi on Nichol
son street at the time of the fight ; Joe Mac-
kev said. " Rally in, bovs : bring hi m out
and shoot him !"' John fired and then
I went off; I saw John shoot' at him ; I do
not know whether John killed him Robert
Whitehurst or not ; I only saw one shot
fired, and went off to get out of danger ;
there was a number around with guns and
pistols ; a colored man tried to protect the
house, and Muekey seized him by the collar,
and asked him if he " would take up for a
dam white secesh son of a ;" the man
I saw John shoot was in his shirt sleeves ; I
saw no white person in the house except
those who lived there.
The Old Dominion, of yesterday, says:
The jury returned a verdict that Robert B.
Whitehurst came to his death from pistol
shots tired by a person or persons unknown
to the jury. The same verdict was rendered
iu the case of Mrs. Charlotte Whitehurst,
with the exception that the word shots were
singular, and not plural. Several parties,
implicated in the riot and murder are now in
jail, and will be examined before the Mayor
at an early day. The coroner's jury felt con
fident that both Mrs. Whitehurst and her son
were killed by colored persons who had par
ticipated in the celebration of that day, and
discussed the propriety of inserting that in
the verdict. It is very evident, from the tes
timony adduce 1, that Whitehurst Brothers
were shot by persons cngasfed in the proces
sion, deliberate y and wilfully, but there is
no testimony to show how Mrs. Whitehurst
was shot, as it occurred inside the house.
Martial law has been proclaimed in the
Norfolk military district.
The Peare PrcdauiMtion. The Omtlal t'on
htrnitioa Explanation by the President.
On the 7th inst., General Tillson, at Au
gusta, Georgia, transmitted by telegraph the
following interrogatory, addressed to Gene
ral O. O. Howard:
Does the President's recent proclamation
remove martial law in this State It so,
General Uranium does not feel authorized to
arrest parties who have committed outrages
on freed people or Union refugees. Please
answer by telegraph.
The following reply was sent from the
Adjutant General's office :
The President's proclamation doc3 not re
move martial law or operate in any way up
on the Frecdmen's Bureau in the exercise of
its leg it i mate jurisdiction. It is not expedi
ent, however, to resort to a military tribunal
in any case where justice can be attained
through the medium of civil authority.
E. D. Townsend, A. A. G.
The Washington correspondent of the
Chicago Tribune, (Radical) gives the follow
ing report of gn interview of General How
nrd with the President, on the 4th instant :
" The General opened the conversation by
explaining that he had sought the interview
for the purpose of learning, without delay,
the effect which the proclamation was de
signed to produce upon the methods and
machinery of the Bureau. More specifically,
he wished to know if martial law was abol
ished, and with it the system of military
courts established for the protection of the
otherwise unprotected freed people.
" The President replied, without hesita
tion, that the proclamation was a declaration
of jiolicy, and nothing more ; that it did not
abolish military courts, did not remove mar
tial law, and was not designed to modify the
operations of the Bureau in any respect
whatever. On the contrary, it was the
President's expectation and express desire,
that the administration of the Bureau should
be continued as heretofore, and that all judi
cial functions should be exercised, as the in
terests of impartial justice may require. The
President further observed that this procla
mation would be Executively interpreted
and applied precisely as was the proclama
tion announcing the restoration of Tennes
see. As the States or part of States give un
questionable evidence of entire readiness to
do impartial justice, they will lie individu
ally and locally relieved from military go
vernment; not otherwise, nor sooner."

A NEW ENTERPRISE I
rpnE UNDERSIGNED, THEMSELVES MEM
I bers of the Sabbath School, propose to com
uience in the city of Raleigh, on or about the 1st
ot next -May,
"THE SUNDAY SCHOOL BANNER."
And in the commencement of this little worl
of love, being boys, ourselves, may wc not appeal
to every Sunday School boy, and girl in North
Carolina to come up promptly to aid the under
taking. In our own State, there are very many
Sabbath Schools, and from the best information
we have, tlic scholarship is large aim increasing,
and it is from them we look for that patronage
which is neccssarv to improve and keep Iloatmg,
this native standard which we propose for their
benefit. It is not for pecuniary gain that the
"Banner," is established; it has for its aim
higher objects, and if we succeed in our enter
prise, it will be to us in after life a source of great
satisfaction to know that, in our boyhood days,
we gave a helping hand to Sunday Schools, the
preparatory School for places of high trust and
position, iu the work of our Heavenly Father.
Its name sullicicntly indicates the object which
is to control its editorial conduct. There is ne
cessity however for the remark that it will not be
denominational, but alike open to all the Sabbath
Schools of this State for contributions, in which
there is no spice of sectarianism.
The " Baxnek " will beissued monthly on hand
some t3-pe, clear white paper aud will contaiu
fourteen columns reading matter, quarto length.
We trust sufficient encouragement may be of
fered to justify the undertaking.
