DECISION BY TUE WASHINGTON TREATY
COMMISSION-PROBABLE FAILURE OF THE
WASHINGTON, December 16.-Before
the commission nuder the Washington
treaty, in the case of Anthony Barclay
es. the United States, the claimant al?
leges that while a resident of Georgia,
he did not intend to chango his alle?
giance from Great Britain, but complied
with the Queen's proclamation of neu?
trality. He pleads the President's pro?
clamation confiscating property passing
from the insurrectionary to loyal States,
and alleges varions acts of plunder by
Sherman's forces, and the occupation of
two of his plantation** bv Sherman'* or?
der. Barclay olaims $275,000. The
United States demur that the nets al?
leged do not oonstitute a valid claim
under the treaty; that they are not re?
sponsible, and that the claimant, by
domicile, is not entitled to olaim as a
British subject under the treaty. The
British counsel olaim that the wanton
destruction of Barclay's property was
not necessary, and tho incident was not
justified by the laws of nations. ID ju?
ries so inflicted are undeniably a proper
subject for reclamation. In case of a
neutral, the British oonnsel admit tem?
porary allegianos, under certain circum?
stances, to one power, but elaim perma?
nent allegiance to another. When two
oonfltot, thc temporary gives way to the
permanent allegiance. The commission
decides that the first question, whether
the oommission have jurisdiction, de
pend??,bpon whether the claimant is a
British subject within the meaning of
the treaty. This undoubted plea, that
the claimant's residence in Georgia ex?
cludes him from the treaty denied, the
whole demurrer was disallowed. But
the United States Government is at
liberty, if they see fit, to take issue upon
the foots alleged in the memorial.

whites io this part of tba world at least,
and thai innocent ''Republicana'* are not
always the victims of the night-riders,
as Merrill, Corbin, Akermau, Grant Sc
Go. would have the world believe, and as
the following statement of facts will
abundantly?pro^o: (? (
On Wednesday night last, 13th, a
party of six or eight men, all negroes
and all armed,' visited the house of Mr.
Williams, at. Wright's Ferry, on Catawba
River, pretending to be in search of a
negro named Tom Glenn, whom they
stated they bad an order from Maj. Mer?
rill to arrest. They entered the house,
used insulting language to the female in?
mates, soi zed npon all the money they
could find, ? half box of tobacco, two
pistols and a ghn, all of which they car?
ried away. They also arrested and car?
ried off with them a young man (white)
named Smith, whom they found at Wil?
liams' house, and whom they acoused of
being a "Ku Klux," after sundry threats
to kill him or drown him in the river.
The party then proceeded to the house
of a Mr. Fite, whore they indulged in a
repetition of their threats and insults.
The same scenes were enaoted at Mr.
Harper's, a neighbor, whose wife they
uompelled to prepuro-breakfust for them.
They also visited the plantation of 3.
E. Glenn, Sheriff of the County, on
whioh a Mr. Davidson was living, arrest
ad a white boy on the place who had
gotten into a dilllonlty with one of the
aogroes, and tried him for the offence,
(?) but inflicted no injury upon him.
Tho females of the household were
threatened here also, and it is said that
i gun was levelled at them by one of the
party. Their leader stated, while on the
raid, that he had been appointed to re?
gulate that country and he intended to
On yesterday morning, (14th.) Mn?,
Williams, from whose boose the young
nan Smith bad been taken, came to
iTorkvillo, and made a statement of what
lad ocourred at her house the night pre?
cious. And last night, Sheriff Glenn,
looompanied by a squad of United States
savalry, proceeded to "the Beat of war."
Lu the meantime, Smith hod b9en kept
.losely guarded, until the outlaws, get?
ing wind of tho approach of the sheriff
md his party, divided-ono squad tak
ng a circuitous route towards Yorkvillo,
tarrying Smith along with them. On
.hoir arrival here, they wont lo Captain
Jgden, the commanding officer, and
itated that they had visited Williams'
limply to search for Tom Glenn, whom
hey had orders to arrest; that they had
sommitted no outrage, and that Smith
tad accompanied them of bia own free
viii. Smith, under threats-of what
diameter it is not yet defluitely known

roluntarily. Upon these statements, the

Meanwhile, the sheriff and his party
md succeeded in capturing four of those
vho had been loft behind. These had
'made a clean breast of it,"andaoknow
edged the facts as they have been
itated. They w. re taken in custody by
he sheriff, who, on the return to York
rille, met those who had brought Smith

Merrill, authorizing them to arrest Tom
.Hmm. Tho officer in command of the
roops, though knowing their guilt, did

irder of bis superior, although giveu

1 have made this hurried statement,
Slr. Editor, iu justice to tho white peo

perfect howl has been raised against the
moralities of the "Ku Klux," from

iot one word is said about the threats o
rioleuce and almost nightly incendiarism
