were full of driuk, celfbratiog ihe

the following account:

attacked him with a baseball bat,
knocking him down. Clark, who was
aear Langhoid, ran in to protect t?im,
and another member of the Ilackett
O8sociation strnck him a heavy blow
ou the hea l with a bat. Tbn negro
turned aau, wresting me cma iroui
his assailant, deilt him a powerfal
blow which sent trim tumbling into the
sound. At this two other excursionists
rused in with bits and began to
hatntner Clark. Th j negro gavj them
a plucky fight and finally kuocked one
of them from the p!er into twen:p !eet
of water.
He was all but a victor when two
launche?, carrying about fifty of the
Hackett association, arrived. 14ie '
men bad been watching the ifeht from

mob a* it advanced. Langho'd and
Mrs. Clark were in the advance and
were protected by Clark, wno fought

bat be had wrested from the man who
first assaulted Mm.
Tbere were fully 3,000 people on the
beach who witnessed the plucky fight
made by the negro, but were nnable to
helo Lim. owin^ to the frail condition
of rbe bridge. Several of the women
and children fainted,- while the band
added to the excitement by keeping op
a lively tune. There were tew policemen
about the phce and the proprietor,
Robert Beck, teeing tbe mob increasing
every moment by fiesh arrivals
from the excursion steamer, telephoned
to Sheriff Molloy in White

wounds on his head, tace and body.
He would have been killed bat for the

were on the beach. Thomas Heffron,

sympathize witb tbe attack, also tnrew
himself across the prostrate negro to

Inasmuch as the regulators became
ater o- an object of detestation by the
King's government as defiers ot the
aw and criminals and fugitives from
justice, it is well to understand the
rature cf the people against whom
ihey banded themselves, and the
manses that led them to take the law
in thoir own hand; Savs the Gazette
of July 27, August 3: The gang of
villains lrom Virginia and North
Carolina who have for some years
past, in small parties under particular
leaders, infested the back parts of the
southern provinces, stealing horses
from one and selling Ihem to the next,
notwithstanding the late public example
made of" several of them, we
hear the-y are more formidable than
ever as to numbers, and more audacious
and cruel in their outrages. It
is reported that they consist of more
than 20C, form a chain of communication
with each other, and have places
of general meeting, where, in inaita-:
tion of councils of war, they form |
plans of operation and defence, and
alluding to their secrecy and fidelity
to each other4 call their places free
majon lodges. Instances of their
crneltv to the people in the back
se'tlements where they rob or otherwise
abuse, are so numerous and
shocking that a narrative of thein
wouid fill a whole Gazette, and every
reader with horror. They at present

Savannah, viz.: Landv Hart and
Obadiah Greenage. Two others,
James Ferguson and James Hambersan
were killed when these. were
taken." In spite of this plain statement
of facts, showing the provocation
of the regulators, the governor
and council regarded them in the light
of rioters aud laworeakers. In the

a riotous manner had gone up and
down the country, committing riots
and disturbances, and that they had

His honor the Lieutenant Governor a

aen of character of the bad behavior. C
On the 19th of April, 1768, the t
/i<5u:ei:a:ii Governor showed that
lany warrauts were out for regnla- ?
ors numbers of whom were poor and c
leluded; whereupon the Attorney e
ieneral was i rdered, after prosecut- j]
ug not more than eight, of the leaders t
o lei the others go. Iuforraa'ion to o
bis effect was conveyed t > lbs back $
ountry, and it was hoped tnat such c
lemency would bj productive of p
;ood results; on the 5th of July Mr.
?acitus Gaillard, haviDg receive-.i an t
xpress asking him to assist in arrest- b
g deserters from his majesty's forces, h
eports that tLe back country was not t
[niet and that regulators were still t
,ssemb!ing. This was the prelude to ?
he greitest outbreaks ot all both in ^
he Pedee section and along the Broad c
,nd Saludy Rivers. The explanation t
>f this riotous conduct is given in a e
etter written September 10th, the r
ame year by Lieutenant Governor fc
Jail to tbe Board of Trade, received D
iy tbem 2Sch of November, but not, ead
till tbe 17th of Noveojitaaflirthe ti
o-l lowing year, as Uintaiarl^ed too t]
ate sor tne annual ^meeting. This is t]
,n i 11 astratiojj- 'of the exceedingly de- ?
Lj^faT^ mauner in which matters of d
Pave importance to the backwoods- i
2ert of Carolina were deliberated by y
home office. As a further instance \\
f culpable delay* it may b2 cited that ^
n ihe loth of September 1768, the ^
iaard considers the county court act a
iat was passed in July, 1767, and ^
-;eu disagrees to its provisions so that ^
ii<i most important reform is po-t- \
oticd still another year. ?
Bull shows in his letter that after h
lou!ague, in April 1768 had written d
n order directing no!, pros, in all g
ises except eight, "tor the sake of a
ximple," "the good effects of this v*
::iient measure were defeated by E
>me warrants without the Attorney r;
General's knowledge being sent up o
Lcong them which tended to destroy a
ieir faith in the indemnity which had
een promised." He adds that men o
eqnentlv revolving in their minds a
resent and fatnre evils, which he si
numerates, believe that these are fi
liefly because tbey have no reprein
