REDLAPSING INTO BA ARISM.
A Coroner's Jury of Negroes Finds &
Verdict 6t Doath from Incantation.
An outrageous case of supersti..
tion is creating great excitement on
Coosaw Island, and it is feared
bloodshed may result before the
interested neighbors are convinced
that they are the victims of their own
blind faith in the supernatural. It
seems that a m n named Snipe died
a short timo' ago of consumption,.
and on his death-bed remarked that
if he died his death would be owing
to the influence of one Dago Hagood,
who, som time last January, came
up behind him, and putting one
hand on each shoulder, asked, "Who
is it ?" a common custom among all
classes. The circumstance was for
gotten by both, and but for the
death of Snipe. would prob
ably never have been recalled had
not Snipe before his death professed
to have had a vision revealing to him
that Hagood's playfulness had been
the causo of his sickness.
The friends of Snipe, believing
that his dying declaration must be
true, sent to Dr. Johnson to hold an
inquest, but the Doctor, after hear.
ing the particulars, declined to do
so. Snipe's father then threatened
that if the law would not punish
Hagood, he himself, would
shoot him on sight. The neighbors
again came to Beaufort for a coro
nor, and after consultation, Mr.
Carleton concluded, for the sake of
preserving the peace, he had bettor
go ; and went and held an inquest,
but no further testimony could be
elicited, and when the jury retired to
deliberate he told them that no ver
dict against Hagood could be ron,
dered, as there was nothing to impli
cato him in the death of Snipe. The
jury, all colored, after long delibera
tion, refused to render any other
verdict than that of mudor against
Hagood, and so the case stands at
Since the above was written we
have seen a copy of the verdict of
the jury, which is worth preserving
and is as follows : "That Adam
Snipe came to his death at Coosaw
Island, in Beaufort county, on the
11th day of April, 1877, and that his
death was caused through one Dago
Hagood, he having some time provi
ously put his hands around do.'
coased's neck, producing;a cough and
poisining said Adam Snipe, thereby
wilfully, unlawfully and feloniously
causing the death of the said Adam
Snipe, contrary to thelpeace and dig
nity of said State."
Mr. Carleton very properly re..
fused to commit Hagood on such an
absurd charge.--Beaufore Tribune,
The Port Royal Advertiser says
that the jury brought in the same
verdict three times, and that Ha
good is now in jail.
I1omn the London Time..
"T. H." writes : "I am boiling
over with indignation while reading
the account of the fearful bastinad
ing of the unfortunate Ali Nasmi,
narrated in your Poera correspond
once. A few days ago I was reading
an account of this punishment in
flicted many y'ears since on an unfor
tunate Englishman. As many of
your readers may not be fully
aware of the horrible nature
of this torture, I give the
account in the victim's own words.
I am led to ask how it is possible
that in our day such barbarous cru..
elty can be perpetrated for so small
an offence as the poor student was
guilty of, and which he so magnani..
mously owned ? The writer says :
'The victim was thrown flat on his
face and his legs bent up, so that
the soles of the feet were horizontal;
the feet were-held in this position
by a long staff and chain. At first
the blows wore moderately dealt,
thern they were laid on more ronghly,
and every stroke like the application
of a red-hot p)oker. At first the pain
was excruciating, b~ut the feelings in
time became nmb, and it was like
beating a bag of wool. It was six
weeks bofore ho could wvalk even
with crutches, and for rnore than
three years his feet and ankles were
very much swelled, and though
twenty years had elapsed when he
published thus account, he still suf
fered. He mentions instances of
the bastinado having been applied
for three days successively, and if the
person survived, the feet wore ren..
dered useless for life ; but in goner
al, ho observes, when between 500
and 600 strokes were inflicted death
was the ceqnanco.
The manufacture of fans is an iin
portant branch of industry in Jaipany
and no fewer than 8,000,000 fans,,
valued at $90,000, were, according
to Mr. Consul Annolsoy's commer
cial report on Hiogo and Osaka,
lately issud, exported from those
ports in 1875. Osaka is the princ.
pal city for the manufacture of the
"ogi" or folding fans, which are
those almost exclusive!y .exported,
all descriptions of the bamboo lkind
being made there, the figures, writ
ing, &c., being executed in Kiyoto.
The principle of division of labor,
as explained in an extract from the,
Ifiogo Neton, quoted by Consul
Annesley, is carried out a long way
in this branch of industry. The
bamboo ribs of the fans are made by
private people in their own houses,
and combinations of the various
notches out in the lower part is lef6
to one of the finishing workmen,
who form the various patterns of
the handles according to plans pro
pared by the designer. In like
manner the designer gives out to
the engravers the patterns that he
thinks will bo saleable, and when
the blocks have boon cut, decides
what colors are to be used for each
part of the design, and what differ
ent sheets are to be used for the
opposite sides of each fan. When
these sheets with the gets of bamboo
slips which are to form the ribs have
been handed over to the workman,
he, in the first instance, folds theni
so that they will retain the crease.
This is done by putting thom be
tween two pieces of heavily oiled
paper, which are properly creased.
The fans are then folded up too
gether and placed under pressure.
When sufficient time has elapsed
the shoots are taken out and the
moulds used again, the released
sheets being packed up for at least.
twenty-four hours in their folds.
The ribs, which are temporarily
arranged in order on a wire, aro
then taken and set into their places
on one of the sheets after it has
been spread out on a block and
parted. A dash of paste then gives
the woodwork adhesive powers, and
that part of the process is finished
by affixing the remaining piece of
paper. The fan is folded up and
opened three or four times before
the folds got into proper shape, and
by the time it is put by to dry it
has received an amount of handling
Japanese paper alone would endure.
When the insideu are dry the rivet
ing of the pieces together (including
the outer covering) is rapidly done,
and a dash of varnish quickly
&nishes the fan. The highest
priced fan that was over used in the.
days of seolusion from the outer
world was not more than five yon,
Since foreigners have boon in Japan,
however, some fow have boon made
to order as dear as $10 and $15
each. The general prices of ordi
nary fans range from fifty son per
hundred to fifteen yen per hundred,
though an extraordinarily costly Ian
is turned out at fifty yen per hun..
dred. Th3 number of fans orderedl
for the Philadelphia Ex~hibition
alone amounted to over 800,000, at
a cost of about $50,000. The sale
f fans in olden times seldom exs
eeeded 10,000 a year for the wh.ole
