The nu-etin held in t'nion munty to

dered fellow citizen, Mr. Slack, lynched
by the limb at Morantnn, has great si
nilicance, because it is the voice ol a peo
ple convinced ot the perlcct innocence of
one so summarily hurried to his death
Communities are not apt thus ownly
and boldly to espouse the cause of any
one of their number upon whom the
stain of guilt, or even sluing suspicion ot
guilt, may rest ; for the guilt of one is the
stain and reproach of the whole. But
when communities rise up as one man to
vindicate the character and proclaim the
innocence of a fellow member, we have a
conviction amounting to satisfactory
conclusion that they are right. It seems
then unavoidable to reach the In-lief that
a great irreparable cruel wrong was
done on a man no way implicated in Un
charge for which he was made to sutler,
and that a hasty irrevocable act compli
cates a part of the citizens of Burke
county in an act of murder, committed
without the usual provocations which
frenzy men's blood licyond control. Some
palliation might be offered if the cer
tainly designated rublicr or ravisher had
stood before them. Here suspicion was
the only guide; aud the blow was struck
quickly and in the dark on the possible
plea that a guilty man might escae otli
And here comes in the wrong of senti
ment we rcmemlwr to have seen expressed
by the Greensboro Workman a tew davs
ago. Commenting upon the delays and
uncertainties of the law as provoking to
lynch law, the Workman argues upon
the necessity of quick execution of justice,
implying almost a denial of the ordinary
rights of the accused to establish his in
nocence by the introduction ot testimony;
and cites as authority for this quick jus
tice, the death of Ananias and Sapphira
who fell dead before their Judge and in
the presence of their accusers. Here there
cim be no psssihdity of analogy between
the administration of human justice, and
in this the awful expression of divine an
ger at an act ot oien blasphemy, hut
even in a human point of view, "in this
case guilt was certain; it was consuma-
ted and avowed in the very presence of

and the fearful penalty was exacted so
summarily that the commission might be
