"It was the net of a spectacular (!ov
ernor frequently given to spontaneous
combustion." said Judge Blnckstonc.
He said that this action on the pa-'t
of iho Governor was a blot on the
fair name of Accomac county and
maintained that twenty good men
COIlld have done more in putting an
end to any disturbance than all (lie
boy soldiers who were sent to the
Kastern Snore, of whom many were
ton young to carry a gun.
These remarks on the part of the
