Col. Cash was taken to Columbia,
arraigned before the Chief Justice
on a writ of habeas corpus and re
leased on giving bail.
Mr. Coward, who was shot by
Cash when Richards was killed,
cannot possibly recover.
It was reported at first that Bo
gan Cash had left the State, and
pains were taken to foster the idea.
It is reasonably certain, however,
that he did not range far from
Cash's Depot, and that on one oc
easion , at least, he was able tc
watch in safety the manwiuvres o
the posse who were in search 01
him. It is asserted that last Sun

imprudern, and ience the success
'of the last party who sought him.

It will now be seen that Col.
Cash and John Agnew, of this city,
were engaged in an effort to divert
attention from Boggan Cash's real
hiding place by circulating the re
por-t that he had left the State aun d
was in hiding elsewhere. The opin
ion expressed in this co rrespon
denee, that Cash would not von
tlure toleave his Own eiigh boI'lood.
has been verified.
It occasions some surprise that
Cash should not hatve surrendered
when called on to do so, because
it has been the opinion here that.
his family intliuence would have
sufficed to secure his acquitta-l in
Chesterfield Counity. The most
plaisible explanation of his actionl
is that lie llderlrated the nerve of
the posse and deterImi ned to main
taini to the last his reput-ation for
r-ecklessness, hoping thereby to
escape "with flying colors.'' as his
fatier expressed it on the 9th of
