given out in Washington in an inter
view by Elliott Danforth. of New
Y. rk,. -1ne of Parker's most intimate
friend'i. He says Parker's views are
"Is n favor of reducing the customs
-d-.ie wherever they shelter the
tr.:sts and insists that whenevei
American manufacturers by means of

BURNING AT THE STAKE.
It Was a Legal Punishment in North
Carolina During the Revolu
Edtor News and Courier: Recent
ly while searching through some old
records I chanced to find one of the
most curious documents that has ever
fallen under my observation. It shows,
th4at during the Revolutionary period
ot 'tis country's history a negro was
tried by the courts of North Caro
lina. in Brunswick county, for mur
der. and lawfully condemned to burn
at the stake. That such a legal pro
ceeding ever occurred in this or any
other state may not be known to
many people, but the record was
made'- by the state and there is no
doubt about it being correct. The
"'State of North Carolina. Bruns
wick county. March 15, 1778 * * *
The court proceeded on said trial
and the said fellow, Jemimy, confessed
himself to be one. that had a hand in
murdering of said Henry Williams,
in concurrence of the evidence of four
other malefactors that were executed
for being concerned in said murder
on the 13th day of March. 1777. Or
dered that the ~sheriff take the said
Jemmy from hence to the .place of
execution, where he shall be tied to
a stake and burned alive."
It further appears that the said
Jemmy was a slave, belonging to Mrs.
Sarah Dupree. Three justices of the
peace. William Gance. John Fell, and
Thomas Sessions, and four freehold
ers, Aaron Roberts. John Strainton,
Needham Gorce and James Ludlow,

signed a certinicate that said slave was
worth Soo pounds. or $400 proclamation
money. Uuon that certificate the leg-'
islature passed a resolution for the
payment of the said sum to Mrs. Du
pree. the owner of Jemmy.
