THE BLACKWOOD CASE.
The Hearing In Augusta?The Prisoner i* Discharged
fcat lie-arrested.
The proceedings on the -writ of habeas
corpus in the case of F. A. Blackwood, of
Aiken, who was kidnapped by Stone and
Morally, came off before" Judge Roney in
Augusta Wednesday. The raost important
paper submitted by the petitioner was the
affidavit of his wife, Mrs. Susan E. Blackwood.
She swears, in substance, that
Stone and McNaily went to her house on
the night of the 0:h of March and asked
for a glass of water, and when it was
handed them by her husband he was seized
violently by the arm by Mcl\ally, while
Stone pointed a pistol at him and handcuffed
him. "When he asked for what he
was arrested they refused to produce any
authority, and simply stated that' 'they were
authority themselves." That both men
acted in a rude, boisterous and threatening
manner. After arresting him they searched
the house, and besides taking ?S0 in money
they took one silver watch, one razor, one
pistol and one set of knives and forks,
none of which have been returned. Be*

treated them not to leave his wife penniless
and alone, when they refunded her -$15.
That before her husband was taken away
by the persons above named, as their prisoner
was in irons, he remonstrated with
them, and remarked to them that if they
had given him their authority when they
first arrested him and had not placed liim
in handcuffs, he might have cheerfully
gone with them.
Blackwood was then put on the stand,
and he testified as follows:
"I have been living in Aiken county
since last August. On the night of the 9th
3Iarch Stone and jMcNally came to my
house, asked for a glass of water, and when
I gave it to them, Stone leveled a pistol at
my head, handcuffed me, took me into the
house, searched it. and took almost everything
I had, such as money and silverware.
* McNally wanted to take some jewelry, but
Stone told him it was my wife's, and he
left it. They then brought me to Augusta,
not taking the handcuffs off till we crossed
the river. On the 16th, seven days after
my arrest, Deputy Sheriff Campbell came
to the jail and served a warrant, and on
comiDg from the jail to-day, a few minutes
after 3-<~i'clui)liT-gc -gsrrcd another warrant
on me, a bench warrant. "When arrested,
I told them I did not want to come, but if
they had authority to bring me I should
have to come. On the way to Wiliiston
we met Hr. Gunter. He asked me if I was
going to leave the country. I told him I
did not want to, but these men had me
handcuffed and I could not help it."
Stone was next put on the stand, and he
stated iliat he did not know it was unlawful
to arrest Blackwood as he did; that
such mode of arrest was common: that he
did not draw his pistol; and that Blackwood
came along voluntarilyMcNally
swore that Blackwood came of
on his own free will and accord, and related
the story of how a forged note was
passed on him as published.
Mr. Kyams, of the Augusta Evening
Ifeics, swore that on the morning that
Blackwood reached Augusta he said to him
he did not object to coming to Augusta.
Chief Twiggs and Lieut. Hood swore
that Stone toid them in the presence of
Blackwood" th?t he made no objection to
coming and Blackwood said nothing.
The case was argued by 3Iajor Gary for
South Carolina and by Solicitor Wright
for Georgia. The Court then adjourned
till Thursday.
After hearing further argument on
Thursday Judge Honey rendered his
decision. After stating his views of the
comity between States, he said:
"The highest ? ;m of a government is to
protect its citizenXo person shall be deprived
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 State and
arrest a citizen without due nrocess of law?
"If the Courts of Georgia or any other
State recogni/.e this, it would set at nought
the provisions of the Constitution. If a
criminal goes into another State, the way
to get him is by a requisition.
Then the question is brought up as to
whether or not the arrest of Blackwood was
according to law? "Was he deprived of his
liberty by due process of law? If so, he
should not be remanded; but if not so, he
should be.
"The facts, as elicited by the testimony,
are that when Blackwood was arrested it is
conccded that at that time Stone and 31cZSTally
were not armed by duo process of
law. The question is whether or not Blackwood
was extradited. It is an unpleasant
duty to pass upon facts. This man was
not only not arrested by due process of law,
but was arrested illegally. The affidavit of
Mr. A If.man is to the fcHect that, he warned
them they were not luakiag the arrest in
accordance with the law. Their reply was
that they would take chances. I am obliged
to hold he did not come voluntarily, and
shall therefore remand the prisoner."'
Judge Roney afterwards issued an order
that Blackwood be delivered to the Sheriff,
to be by him taken to South Carolina and

Accordingly late ia the afternoon Deputy
Sheriil Campbell took Blackwood to Sand
Bar Ferry, where he was released, but was
rearrested by Constables Spees and Yandever,
an officer from Augusta having gone
over ahead and had a warrant for his arrest
issued by Trial Justice Mason, of Beech
Island. "When arrested, the constables took
liim to Aiken, where he will be con Seed in
jail until a requisition can be obtained from
the Governor of Georgia and be honored
by the Governor of South Carolina.

Searching lor a Father.
3Irs. 31. C. L. McGuinn. of this city, is
using much effort in searching for her
father David D. D. Kerr, whom she has
reason to believe is yet alive. He left his
home in Cutherford county, X. C., in 1S46
as a member of Company D., First North
Carolina Volunteers, and went to the Mexican
war. He served through it, and re
turned to North Carolina with his regiment
and was mustered out. He did notgo.home,
however, but was heard of at Montgomery,
A hi.. ;r. 1840 at which ?ic;e and place he
started lor California with a man who was
carrying out a drove of cattle. Since then
no definite clue to his fate or whereabouts
has been received by his family. Mrs.
McGuinn was a child of seven years when
her father left home, but has never abandoned
the hope that he would return at
some time. He was peculiarly marked,
having two thumbs on his right hand, and 1
this clue is being used in the effort to trace
him. There are two men in this county 1
who were in 3Ir. Kerr's company, and who i
remember him distinctly. He was a prac-% <

COLOR I.V THE CHURCH.
, Decided Breach in the Episcopal Convention. 1
Charleston*, S. C., May 13.?The Episopal
Diocescan Convention of South Caroina
continued to-day the discussion of the '
iglit of colored clergy to admission to the c
[oor as delegates. A great many speeches 1
rere made ol both sides of the question, 1
,nd considerable feeling was manifested. ?
This morning Bishop Howe announced the ]
invention organized for business. The <
:?Fect of this announcement was to'seat the ]
:olored clergyman. An appeal was taken ?
Tom this Oecision. and the debate was re- ]
icwed on the color question.
After discussing the matter all day the i
convention re-assembled this evening, when
Jie Bishop put the question on sustaining '
;he appeal from his decision. . The conveiT- '
:ion refused to sustain the decision, where- J
upon the Bishop ordered the Secretary to .
read the rules of order. . This precipitated
an entirely unanticipated scene. Hon.
0. G Memminger, lay delegate from J
Grace Church, of Charleston, jumped to
his feet and announced that Grace Church
would withdraw from the Convention. He
was quickly fallowed by other members of
the laity all over the church, who announced
that they and their delegates would aiso
withdraw. When a count was made, it'
was found ths.t lay delegates from fourteen
parishes had withdrawn, and that of the
clergymen Eev. R. S. Trapier, of St.
Michael's Church, Charleston, and Rev.
Wm. II. Hanckel, of Trinity Church, Abbeville,
had joined in the secession. The
rules of the Church provide that ten parishes
shall constitute a quorum. There arc
more than enough delegates, lay and clerical.
left to make a quorum, and the Convention
will continue its sessions to-morrow.
[Fourteen delegations seceded, as followsSt.

Charleston, May 14.?The Episcopal j
Convention proceeded regularl^with business
to-day. The usual committees were
appointed by Bishop Howe, and every was
done as if the Cnnvention was full.
A resolution was adopted, inviting the
seceding delegates to return to the Convention.
These laUer responded that they
would return provided the Bishop would
thereupon put to the Convention the question
raised by the appeal of General McCrady
from the Bishop's rnling that the
Convention wis du^* and canonically organized.
The Convention declined to accept
this, so the breach remained as wide
as before.
The Convention adjourned sine die on
Saturday night.
The seceding members, comprising four
clergymen and the lay representative from
twenty parishes, met in ?he Sunday-school
room of St. P.aiiip's church in secret session.
It is their purpose to publish an address
setting forth in full the grounds of
their action.
R0S5BR"VS. SHERIDAN.
The General of the Army Defended by General
Ec ivardx, of Illinois.
The Winchester, Va., Times prints the
following letter:
"Warsaw, III., May 7 ?Editor of the
Winchester Times?Dear Sir: Having
seen extracts of a letter from Gen. Thos.
L. Rosser to Major Holmes Conard in reference
to Gen. P. H. Sheridan, I trust you
will publish this letter from me, though it
is unknown to and unauthorized by Gen.
Sheridan. Sui.-li soldiers as General Rosser
and Major Coaard will surely acknowledge
it to be a soldier's duty to obey the orders
of those in authority over him. I know
that General Sheridan, while in command
of the Federal forces in the Shenandoah
Valley, was acting under an order from
the War Department, and signed by General
Halleck, chief of staff, to desolate the
valley from Winchester as far as possible
towards Staunton. I quote the order: "To
destroy ail forage and provisions, all barns
and outhouses and all unoccupied dwellings,
houses and fences. In short, you
will make such complete desolation that
:-hould a crow attempt the passage of the
valley he would have to carry his own subsistence
or starve on the route.' The object
of this order from the War Department
was to prevent General Lee from sending
troops in light marching order to subsist on
the country through the valley to threaten
Washington and interfere with the siege of
Richmond, and it was considered a necessary
war measure.
"Whenever our army occupied a place
where there were both union and disunion
elements, as at Winchester, there we found
much bitter feeling. "Wounded soldiers
from Crook's Army of Western Virginia,
in hospitals at Winchester, after the battle
of the Opequon, one very windy day set
fire to your town, near the old' postoffice.
It so happened that one of my regiments
was made up mostly of Philadelphia fire
laddies, and 'their colonel was an old f re
chief. I ordered them to save your beautl
fui town, and by great exertion they succeeded.
Gen. Sheridan warmly approved
this. He permitted the Confederate hospitals
in Winchester to retain their own
? Ai nl/-.i/? f nnrlAr
LlUIiCS, JLiUli VJVUil C^UUIU,
aad he treated them in every way as well
as our own wounded were treated. I will
refer in this to ex-Medical Director Colonel
Love, C. S. A. War in any case is cruel;
and barbarous, but I'am sure that General ]
Rosser would not knowingly find fault
with General Slieridan for obeying positive
orders. Thank God, it is over, aud with
best wishes for your people and your lovely j
city, I am sincerely yours,

HO.NOBS TO JEFFERSOX DAVIS.
.'he President of the Southern Confederacy j ^
Has a Grr.nd Reecption at Meridian, Mists.
A special from Meridian, Miss., says
hat last Thursday morning a public rc- c
:eption -was given Jefierson Davis at the i c
esidence of Col. J. K. Mcintosh, where ?
le is stopping. For two hours a perfect ?
itream of people passed through the i
parlors and shook hands with the ex-. I
ihieftain and his beautiful daughter.
Mr. Davis was in his best humor and had ;
i pleasant "rc ord for each one that shook ;
lis hand. i1
At 5 o'clock in the evening a banquet j
md reception was given in the Court
House grounds. Mr. Davis made 3 short ,
iddress, in which he thanked the people .
of Meridian for their most cordial reception.
At this point the members of the
Press Association ascended the platform
in a body and presented their respects to ,
him.
At the banquet there were 300 plates. :
and seated at the tables -were the most j
distinguished men of the State. A floral I
wreath -was brought in, and E. H. Dial j
presented it to Mr. Davis in the name of 1
the women of Meridian. Mr. Davis, in I
accepting it, said:"God
has graccd the South with
beautiful flowers and lovely women. The
most blessed of women are those of our
own Southland. With such feeling ex-;
pressions, the beautiful flowers, which .
were arranged so artistically by lovicj I
hands, are more beautiful than anything .
that has been given to me."
The second toast was to ';Jefferson :
Davis, soldier, statesman, and champion !
of Southern rights." It was introduced i
by Hon. Thos. H. Woods. When Mr. j
Davis rose to reply, he was greeted with :
long continued applause. He began by j
apologizing for the short address he ;
would make them, and said that he was i
quite fatigued from the daj's exercises, j
Continuing he said:
"I am unable to treat this theme as it j
should be without premeditation. What;
j ,.e j.1, ? :
was ine army axiu uavjr t-i mc uuavu.
It was the patriotism of persons who
bared their breasts to bullets in defending
a constitutional right. With great
navies and armies against us, we formed
regiments and battalions. At their head
we placed Lee as their commander. "We
remember scenes where the wife, as she
threw her arms around her husband, and
daughters in loving embrace gathering
around those that were to go, and then
the widowed mother, as she let tear
drops fall on the face of the devoted son
she would never see again, and girdled
his sword to his waist and told him to go j
forth, as his father would have done.
Those were the kind of men we had.
With inferior numbers of men we
marched onward, fighting for our rights,
and battle after battle was fought and
won; but Northern historians never conceded
that, and indulged in triumphs of
mind over matter. But now those scenes
and incidents have passed, and they only
live in our minds and history. United
you are now, and if the Union is ever
to be broken, let the other side break it.
The army of the South will shine forever
f round the the camp fires, and will still
shine to our children and children's
children. The truth we fought for shall
not encourage you to ever fight again;
but keep your word in good or evil.
God bless you all"
"Zeb" Vance at the Circus.
It is rarely that a circus and a United
States senator run up against each
other, but such a thing occurred down
in North Carolina a day or two before
election. It happened that one of the
small road circuses of the South struck
Wilkesborough, Wilkes county, N. C.,
one day, and found, to the horror of the
manager, that the town had been billed
for a grand democratic mass-meeting,
with Senator Zebulon B. Vance as the
great attraction. The circus had had
a hard summer, and the proprietor
thought when it reached its native heath
in North Carolina it would strike it
rich. But the proprietor was nearly
panic-stricken when he saw the flaring
i democratic posters and heard the people
| talking about the great anti-civil-service
: senator who had more relative;! in posi
tions under the United Stateu government
than all the other senators put
together. After thinking over the matter
for a long time the proprietor concluded
to go see Senator Vance, and see
if a combination of the two shows
could not be made. So he called on
j the sen tor, and found him?as everyj
body else has?good-natured, jolly and
| pleasant The proprietor mentioned his
I fears to the senator, and said that he,
fedred the opposition.
"Yes," replied Senator Vance, candidly;
"I am something of a circus myself,
especially as I give a free show,
and I am afraid I will hurt your business.1'
"Th. n don't you think it would be of

dress the crowd from the circus ring
under my tent, and on top of the lion's
cage?"
Senator Vance thought for a little
while, and then concluded it would be
a good joke, and so he consented. The
proprietor of the circus concluded to cut
the price of admission down to twentyfive
.cents, so everyone could come.
Just before the show began, and a
freat crowd had collected about the
oor, Senator Vance made his way
toward the entrance; but before he got
there he was somewhat startled "to sec
the clown mounted on a chair outside
the door and hear him exclaim:
"Step th'13 way, ladies and gentlemen!
Here is the greatest show on the faco of
the globe! Not only is the show in itself
a whole continent of wonders and
an aggregation of talent never before
collected together under one name, one
roof, or on one stage, but it presents tonight
an additional feature. Step right
up, ladies and gentlemen; do not bo
afraid. The lions are cagcd and tho
monkeys are harmless. As I remarked,
we have an attraction to-night which
eclipses all the wonders of heavon and
sinks into oblivion all the freaks of
earth. This great feature, ladies and
gentlemen, is a real live unncu states
senato', who will address the crowd
from the top of the lion's cage! Step
right up, ladies and gentlemen! Tickets
only twenty-five cents! Wo have
reduced the price one-half so that uli
can nee and hear the great anti-clvilservice
reform senator, Zebuloa 15.
Vance! Step up! Step up! Step up, and
don't be bashful!"
The senator thought -he had bettor go
in before he heard any more, and ne
did. The clown still continued his
harangue and was the means of liliing
the tent. After the regular show the
lion's cage was drawn out into the
ring. A step-ladder was placed beside
it, and three chairs were placed on top.
Then Senator Vance mounted this rostrum
and delivered his speech.? Washington
Letter.

Post: "it was on a former occasion,

of his appearance. 1

Telegrams to Brachlrett'x as to the cotton
:rop show.that the crop of the country, i g
wing to a backward spring and dry 'leather t
;ecerally throughout the belt, is late from |
ive days to two weeks. Compared with \ |
ecent seasons, however, the disparity as to ' ,H
)l*ating-time is not so great, and in several h
sections the planting h:is been finished fully !?
is early, and, in some cases, earlier than g
ssl year. The greatest delay in planting | it
ins bccu in those sections usually showing j
?ar!y progress. Ia Texas especially the dry
tveather assumed the proportion of a drouth,
which delayed planting, and where seed r
i**as put in it, delayed germination. But the i *past

growth, but a changc in this rc-spect is i
noted. The general crop prospects arc repo:tcd
'-qua! to those of last year at this time,
though it is too early to decide det;nif?dy.
The telegrams show that the S'.:pphVi at
the smaller uncounted towns are ;.!n:ost exhausted.
Many tow us report no stock at
all. Nearly all show that where cotton is
held now, stocks are vastly less than at the
like date last year. As examples of this the
following towns are instanced. Meridian.
Miss., has a stock of 200 bales; last year
this time, 2,000 bales. Grenada,Miss., h.\no
cotton on hard; one year ago, 000 bale*
were held. For' Smith. Ark., has400 bales,
one year ago, 3,000 bales. The stock atOpelika,
Ala., is CO bales; last year it was;
400 bales.
It may be of interest to know that where
the question of acreage is reported it is gen-;
erally accompanied by a statement that the .
area planted is equal to if not exceeding!
that of last year. This is most manifest in j
the Southwest.
