On the eighth instant, Williams niado a

gives us the following notes of what ho
stated: "Mr. Williams czpressed a great
desire to make a confession. He said he
had been an instigator of the troubles in
Pope county, and deeply regrettod having
acted any putt in them. Ho did not blamo
the men for shooting him, for ho shot at
them first, and did not desiro them mo
lested, whether by law or otherwise. Ho
had ordered his men to go home, and
never return again, and said that Dodson
and Uphara had better disband their men.
He wished some one would toll them novor
to como about him again. If they should
come to see him, he would adviso them to
disband their men, for there was no ne.
cessity lor their presence, or for martial
law in Popo county. They wore only

The following letter from Rev. J. M.
P. Hickerson explains itself. We givo it
as a part of the history of these Popo
cocnty troubles :
Little Rock, September 14th,
Editors Gazette As a citizen of
Pope county, and a one well acquainted
personally with the parties, I proposo to
examine the character ot somo of those
involved in tbo Pope county troubles. It
would bo unpardonablo "in mo to say
nothing on this subject at thi timo.
Therefore, to tho thousands with whom
I have been so Intimately associated as a
traveling minister In north Arkansas, and
to the church of God in Tennessee, Ala
bama and Arkansas, by whom I have
been so lone honored a a minister and
presiding offlcor, I would say that durine
the last fow years my general health has
oeen so precarious mat 1 navo dono but
littlo itinerant labor in tho church : and.
on the fifteenth day of January, 1872, I
accepted a position lor a tew months as
deputy cloric oti'opo county. It was a
meat and bread question with mo thero
was no politic in it. I remained in that
office until the thirtioth day of August, at
which timo I was discharged fur tho fol
lowing reasons: After Wallaco H. II11-
cox, county cleric, and a. W. Dodson,
sheriff, and W. A. Stuart, tho school
superintendent, and, on the eighth day or
July, so brutally burdered two of tho un
armed prisoners thoy had in charge, they
fled to Littlo Kock to cot martial law de
clared. They represented to bis excel
lency that civil law could not bo enforced-
that no civil officer in the county was
safo in tho discharge of hi official duties,
etc. Tho citizen of Pope county sent mo
to the executivo with a different mesago.
I performed my mission and returned.
No martial law was tho result. Tbo sher
iff and clerk refused to como back to Do
ver to take chargo of their offices without
troops to braco them ; said the country
was full of armed men in rcsistanco to
civil process. In tho moantime I had as
sured his excellency, by private letters
two or three times each week, that thero
were no troeps In tho county.
Govornor Uadloy ent Goncral A. W.
Bishop to Popo county to examino and as
certain tho facts, and report to him. Gon
oral Bishop and mvsoif traveled alone.
unarmed, to tho different townships and
public places in tho county. Wo found
noposses ot armou mon, and my messago
and letters to Governor Ilndley were sus
tained. The next step taken to get mar
tial law was to closo the clerk's office.
Hickox ordered mo to close it; said it was
unsafo for mo to remain in it and do tho
work. I told him I had no fears. lie
orderod it closed. I kept it open and done
all the business for a month or six weeks
during which timo General Bishop was
in uover. ina on tno murium: tnat
General Bishop was to addross the citi
zens of tho county in tho courthouso at
Dover, Wallaco U. Hickox camo
to my rcsidenco about daylight
and ordered mo to lock all tho doors of tbo
courthouso and not lot Bishop enter it.
Hold him Govornor Uadloy had sont
General Bishop to tho county and 1
thought ho oucht to have tho court-house
Hickox iworo Bishop had no business in
tho county, and should not speak in the
courthouse. Ho left, and at the procor
timo I oponed tho courthouso and gavo
General Bishop admission. About tho
fifteenth or twenty-first of august, Dodson
and Hickox camo to Dovor and nailed up
all tbo doors of tlio courthouso oxcopt one
locked that ono and left. Hicicox then
sont certain parties with doeds to be recor
ded, thinking that I had been fastened out
and Hickox could then report to Gov
ernor Uadloy that tho ofilco was closed,
that his deputy could not fcol secure in tho
offiico and bad sont deeds and mortgages
away without filling or recording the
samo. But. to hi surprise. I took tho
doeds, unlocked tho door with tho dupli
cate key ho guvo mo when I first went in
to tbo ofilco But which ho had forirot-
ton I fillod tbo deeds, nnd sent tho man
away. Hero ho wa foiled again. On tho
thirteenth day of August Hickox came,
laid his pistols on a table by his sido In
in tho cloark's office, and abused mo to bis
heart's content, for not assisting him and
uouinn in gotting martial law, and said 1
had rulnod the Republican party in Popo
county, and deserved to die. Thon ho
discharged mo from tho ofilco, nnd on tho
next day Messrs. Dodson, William and

Accompanying this revelation camo a
vatt mass of confirmatory evidonco. Iti
all of record, in proceedings duly hold be-
foro an examiner in the supremo court of
Pennsylvania for tho Eustoru District
Moro general denials will not meet this
case. Till Mr. Ames is forced on tho
stand by tbeso gontlomen, whoso good
names aro thus asporscd, tbo public will
believo they daro not face tho testimony
that would follow.
Meanwhile, we invito tho attention of
our reader totbis furthor statomont, mado
editorially in the 'Sun' :
Ono of our reporters visited ono of tho
moro conspicuous mombers of congress
mentioned In Mr. Oakes Ames' list, and
this member admitted to him that, so far
as ho was concerned, tho fact was so. In
addition to this testimony wo now liayo
that of another prominent republican in
tbo bouse of representatives, who baa per
sonally informed us thatt'n the latter part
of 1867 the provoiition to allot to him a
portion of Credit Mobilier itock was made
to mm by a member of the vreait Moouier
Vompany, and It wa declined. This agnnt
aid to our Informant: "All your frionda
aro in it;" and allowed him a list of name
written on a paper, saying: "These are
thefenators and members who havo an interest."
Now notice tho most that, up to this
hour, the most unscrupulous of tho ad
ministration organs has boon ablo to say
in defonso:
Having had all thoir other fabrications
knocked on tho head, thoy have con
cocted somo stupid falsehood about Credit

Oakes, or something of that kind and

Important or satisfactory character rela
tive to the Boyd affair, though thero it
till much speculation in regard to many
of tho details. Curiosity is stilt eager to
xnow tne procuo truth of the wuoio transaction.
Thero bolng no longer a question In tho
minds of any ono who has road or hoard
tho facts already. In regard to Boyd's
ruso and escaped tho Iqnutry now is,
whothor tho two witnesses, Rcngun and
Bnd Honsley, wore privy to tho plot in
cluding tho robery of tho gravo and burn
ing of tho negro's body, tho alleged seiz
ure by disguised men, otc., or whethor
thev woro innocontly imposod on by Bovd
and his confederates in tho mountain, for
fiurpese of establishing tho fact of his bo
ng killed, and of being corroborated by
tho burnt remain.
The acquaintances of tho two men.
many of them, believe thi story and
think it was tho plan ot Boyd to havo
them soizod and tied as reported, so that
thoy might conclontiously givo evidonco
of bis apparont death. This, for the pre
sent, at loast, is tho charitable construc
tion. Othors, of course, havo their own
and contrary belief.
Thora are various report of Boyd hav
ing been scon at different points, going in
tho direction of Georgia. Some havo
conjectured that; from tho horso bolng
discovered in the neighborhood of Mouso
Creok, Boyd was reckless enough to ro
turn to the neighborhood of tho railroad.
Others regard tho apnoarrnco of the horso
In that neighborhood, as corroboration of
Reagan's and Hensley's story, thinking
ono of Boyd's confedorates probably rode
him to that point.
