To shume tho cause for which they fought.

Who grandly fell w ith sword in hand.

That gently rises o'l r the plait),

To us, some gallant soldier slain.
By ocean tide and mountain side
Our heroes fell ill thickest light,
And there they rest, their spirits blest.
In the realm of heavenly light.

Clo where the woodland echoes ring. j
Then come and crown each hallowell mound
With the sweetest Howers et spring.

To lind where lie your gallant dead,
And eiown the gravo that died lo save
You from oppression's ruthless tread.

And lay ii gently at the head

Still leads Iiis sainted, gallant dead.

To win thc right by dauntless light,
And thus his bleeding country .save.

THE ULAC'KWOOU CASK,
riic Hearing in Augitnln-Thc 1'rlnonvr i? Dis
charged inn Uc-arrcMtcd.
The proceedings on Hie writ of habeas
corpus hi the ( ase of P. A. Blackwood, of
Aiken, who was kidnapped hy Stone und
McNally, came o'" lu fore Judge Honey in
Augusta \Yedncsday. Thc most luipottant
paper submitted hy the petitioner was tho
affidavit of bis wife, Mrs. Susan K. Black
wood. She swears, in substance, that
Stone and McNally went to her house on
tho night of the '.'"?li ol March and asked
for a glass of water, and when it was
handed them by lu r husband lie was seized
violently by Hie arm by McNally, while
Sinne pointed a pistol at him ?ind hand
culled him. When he asked for what be
was arrested they refused to produce any
authority, and simply slated that "they were
authority themselves.'' That both nun
acted in a rude, boisterous and threatening
manner. Aller arresting him llioy searched
tuc house, nud besides taking $80 in money
they took one silver walch, one razor, ono
pistol and one set of knives and forks,
none of which have been returned, be
fore they left die house Blackwood en
treated them not to leave his wife penniless
and alone, when I lay refunded her $10.
That before her husband was taken away
by Hie persons above named, as their pris
oner was in irons, he rctllOllSlrutcd with
thom, mid remarked to them that if they
had given him their authority when I hey
?rsl arrested bim and had not placed him
in handrail's, he might have cheerfully
gone willi them.
Blackwood was then put on the stand,
and he- testilicd as follows:
"1 have been living in Aiken county
since last August. On the niela of the Ulli
March Stone and McNally came to my
house, asked for a gluSSof water, and when
I gave il to them. Moue leveled a pistol al
my head, handcuffed me, took me into thc
house, searched it. and tock almost every
thing I had, snell as money and silverware.
McNally wanted to take some jewelry, hut
Stone told him it was my wile's, ?uni he
left it. Tlicy then brought me io Augusta,
not taking tho halidon ITs oil' till we crossed
the river. On thc 10th, sc veil days aller
my arrest, Deputy Sherill' Campbell came
to thc jail and served a warrant, and on
coming from thc jail to day, a few inimit?s
after ? o'clock, he served another warrant
on nie, a bench warrant. When arrested,
I told them I did not want to conic, lau ii
tiley had authority to bring me 1 should
have lo conic ?lu thc way lo Williston
wo met Mr. Gunter. Ile asked me if 1 was
going to leave thc country. I told him 1
did not want, to, bul these men lind nie
handcuffed and 1 could not help it."
Stone was next put Oil the stand, and he
slated that he did not know il was unlaw
ful lo arrest Blackwood as bo did; that
sucli mode of arrest was common: that bc
did not draw his pistol: and that Black
wood came along voluntarily.
McNally swore that Blackwood came of
on his own free will and act ord, and rela
ted the story of how a forged note was
passed on him as published.
Air. Hyams, ol' the Augusta Evening
Neuss, swore that on the morning thal
Blackwood reached Augusta ho said t<> bim
he did not object to coming lo Augusta.
Chief TwiggS and Lieut. Unod swore
that Stone- told them In the presence of
Blackwood that bo made no objection lo
coming and Blackwood said nothing.
The case was argued by Ma jor Gary for
South Carolina and by Solicitor Wright
for Georgia. The Court then adjourned
After hearing further argument on
Thursday .Indee Roney rendered his
decision. After stating in's views of thc
comity between Slab s, he said:
"Thc highest aim of a government is to
protect its citizens. No person shall he de
prived of life or liberty, except by due
process of law. The question arises, shall
a citizen of one State set aside the laws of
extradition and go into another Slate und
arrest a citizen without due process of law?
"If the Courts of Georgia or any other
State recognize this, it would set nt naught
thc provisions of the Const I tu lion. If a
criminal goes into another Slab-, the way
lo get him is by a requisition,
"Then the question Is brought lip as lo
whether or not the arrest <?f Blackwood was
according to lau : Was ho deprived of his
liberty by due process of law? If sn, la
should not bo remanded? bul if not so. bo
"The facts, as elicited by tim testimony,
arc that when Blackwood was arrested it is
conceded that at that time Stone ami Mc
Nully were no! armed by due process of
law. Tho question is whether or not Black
wood was extradited. It is an unpleasant
duty to pti. s upon fai ls, This man was
not only not arrested by duo process of law,
but was arrested illegally. The nflidavH of
Mr. Allman is to the effect that he warned
them they were rot making (he arrest in
accordance With tho Jaw. Their reply was
that they would take chalices, i Oin Obliged
lo hold he did not come voluntarily, and
shall therefore remand thc prisoner."
Judge Roney afterwards issued an order
that Blackwood bo delivered to the sheriff,
to ls; by him taken lo South Carolina and
there released and discharged from custody.
Accordingly lute in thc afternoon Deputy
Shcrlir Campbell look Blackwood to Sand
Uar Ferry, where lie was released, hui was
rearrested by Constables Spec? and Van
dover, an ollleer from Augusta having gone
over ahead and had a warrant for his arrest
issued by Trial Justice Mason, of Leech
Island. When arrested, the constables took
him to Aiken, where lie will be confined hi
jail until a requisition cm boobtaiocd from
tho Governor of Georgia and bc honored
by tho Governor of South Carolina,

The social event of the week was the ap
pooranoo of Patti in tho oporn "La Travb
ata." The fact that she had been beard
here before in this opera ?lid not seem to
have a deterring eff ect upon the pul ?lie.
and lt may be truthfully said that rarely it
ever, hus so distinguished an audience as?
semhled within thc walls of an opera house,
08 that which gathered at Albaugh's on
Tuesday evening. Tho President of thc
United States, Ins Cabinet officers, men
prominent In political olliuira, women who
ure recognized as queens in tho social world,
and titled representatives of foreign
countries, combined in paying their tribute,
to thc acknowledged queen of song.
Queen linpionuni, of the Hawaiian
Islands, and her party arrived in Washing
ton Tuesday evening, and spent the remalli
der of the week in viewing thc wonders <'l
our national capital. It is not uti uncoin
mon thing for distinguished representatives
of foreign countries to visit Washington,
but it is seldom that wc have been honored
hy thc visits of royalty ?'self. Tho Queen's
complexion Ia not quite so dark as the lui
blood negro, but darker than that of thc
average mulatto. She is of medium height
and weighs apparently about 200 pounds!
Tho Princess, who accompanies ber as ?
member of the party, is much youngci
than the Queen, nial, notwithstanding bel
dark complexion, Is quito handsome. Dur
lng thc Queen's stay in Washington she wai
entertained hy both government official!
and the representatives of foreign countrie s
and expressed herself ns much pleased wit i
Washington and with her cntertainmen
When it was announced that thc coin
plextoucd ruler of thc South Pacific Islam!
was lo bo given the distinguished honor o!
a special dinner al thc White 1 louse, n pro
test w;is heard from some frequenters 0
tlie Executive Mansion. It wassaid that a
least one of the Cabinet officers would no
attend the dinner, but this rumor was un
founded. Upon tho occasion of IhcQucen'i
visit to the Washington barracks, she wa
received hy General Gibson and thc troop:
were reviewed by her. A royal salute wai
(ired as thc party passed through Ibo gates
After leaving the barracks the party attend
cd thc races, returning in time to attend tin
circus bl tho evening, where they oct nplci
seals that had been specially reserved fo
them. On Friday thu party was conveyer
to Mount Vernon on hoard thc U. S
steamer Dispatch, they being accompatllei
hy tho Cabinet officers, diplomatic! c orps
judges of tho Supreme Court und a lev

Thc recent exhumation of the reinaini
of P. S. IS'ey, at Third Greek Church, ii
Rowan county, N. C., shed no light tlpoi
tho mystery of tho eccentric mun wh<
many have long supposed wan the veiit
able Marshal Ney of Prance. So mucl
of tho skull had passed into dust that ii
could not ho ascertained whether or Ubi
it bad been trephined. Unavailing
search was made in tho grave for thc
silver plate und for the bullet? which il
was thought by many would bo found.
A largo number of persons wore pres
ont, and tho exhumation was conducted
by eight well known physicians, wbc.
nitule the following report:
Tho undersigned physicians wish tc:
state ihut according to previous notice
we did to-day cause to ho exhumed thc
remains of P. S. Ney, in thc presence cd
a great number of witnesses, ?onie ol
them from Washington City, Raleigh
and other parts of the country. W"
found some of the bones cully and tho I
in a state of such decay that we cannot
state positively whether thc skull had
even been trephined or not. Wo made
diligent search ior bullets said to have
been lodged in the body hut found nolie.
We succeeded so far hoWOVOr, as to
ascertain that tho skeleton was about C
foot 10 inches long and tho skull around
about the eyes about 21 inches in cir

Unveiling HU Indian Idol,
A rock which the Sioux Indians m ar
Fort Yates, D. T., have worshiped for
generations as the petrified form of a
young squaw, was formally unveiled tin

plenty, lt appears that tho white set

that this specimen of nature's art work
exerted a restraining indue nco on the
Indians, but of lute tho rock has been

and it was feared that with its removal
its churm hud disappeared, Bo tho sug
