They closed the door of the jail liehind them, and ordered those who. had been witness of their work as prisoners to remain in the jail, as they meant not to be interfered with by alarming the village, and they proceeded back by the street and road in which they had come, dragging with them the pinioned negroes at a double-quick pace. CONDCCT OK THE VIGILANCE. While the vigilants were in the village, and at work at the jail, they used no pro fane language, indulged in no threats, and refused to say more than was neces sary to their work and to silence the pro tests of the persons who were urcsent.' Their work seemed to be all planned with accuracy, and they carried it out without au incident of any kind to inter fere.

One after another of the citizens bad been aroused, and came to ward the jail with anxious looks, inquir ing what had taken place; many learning with surprise that the men had been taken away and hung, while another class, always ready -with an "I told you so," was certain that it would be done. Wc heard no regrets expressed, but on the contrary, the most who ventured an ex pression justified the deed that hastened these alleged criminals to their doom. The murder of the Tark family was a heart rendering affair, committed in cold I blood, and swift and terrible has been the punishment inflicted upon these men as the perpetrators of the deed.

Sen. Ed. Mob Law. In this issue we publish the details of a , triple tragedy which indellibly stamps an- j other black spot on Indiana's fair name. : The Indianapolis Journal, in commenting I upon the atrocity of the affair, says : j "The brutality of the negroes who mur- j derd the Park family in Clark county. only exceeded by that of their barbarous ; executioners. Lynch law is excusable ; when crime is strong enough to control j the action of judicial tribunals and nullify j the penal laws. In California the criir.i ual classes held the ballot-boxes, packed j juries, and dictated veidicts and judici: 1 opinions. A brutal minority had intimi-; dated the masses of the citizens, and no show of resistance was made until James King, a prominent citizen of San Francis co, was assassinated in open day upon the public streets, by a desperado named Ca : .:i ,1 1. ,1 1... sev. One morning six thousand unmasked J"u u 11U,L MlKl citizens stood shoulder to shoulder in the public scpiure, and with glittering bayon ets in their hands, pronounced judgment upon the ruffians. Three of them were tried, fonndjfiuilty of murder and huug, while scores of them were banished from the State. A few years a?j the Reno o-nno- nip.mnriMl strtno-th wilh the l:iv in Ltinn .nntv Thnv wP.n. was on his knees in the cell, praying, he powerful, and had sheriff, jurors and law yers in their constant pay. They planned r'f tbe danSerous position he occupied, in While the fact that the w orst form cf Indiana Democracy has prevailed for 3-ears in the counties of Jackson, Frank lin and Clarke, goes far to explain the re peated acts of brutality and lawlessness that have occurred in those localities, it is not sufficient to explain the fur'.her fact that it is almost impossible to arouse pub lic sentiment to an appreciation of the guilt of the mobocrats. There is a gener al impression that our criminal code is framed and administered so as to provide and furnish facilities for the escape of malefactors. It was enacted by a legisla ture composed in the main of criminal lawyers, and its provisions are interpreted by judges selected from the same class. One would suppose from reading our laws and seeing thcin administered in our cour's, that thieves, perjuiers and murder ers were a very worthy class of citizens, whose-rights were in danger of invasion, and that it had become necessary to throw extraordinary safeguards around them to protect them from persecution. From the time a criminal is charged with an offence, the whole machinery of the law is worked with a view to assist him to escape pun ishmeut. In the first place, he cannot be put up'n his trial until nine of twelve grand jurors -agree to indict him. When he is put up on trial, if his cr.me be murder, he can challenge twenty jurors, while the State is allowed but six challenges. If his crime be less than murder, he has ten challenges to the State's three. If the Judge frying the case commits an error as to the admission of testimony or in in structions to the jury, the defendant gets a new trial, while a felon may escape by means of the grossest misconduct of the J udge, and the State has no redress. If jurors are improperly influenced by out- siders to the prejudice of the prisoner, he can set their verdict aside, but he may ob tain a verdict of acquittal by the most fla grant bribery, and the verdict is a bar to further prosecution. In the argument to 1he jury, the defence has the close; and Indiana is Ihe only State di-graeed by such -a. practice. It- was incorporated into our code by calaboose lawyers, for the benefit of the criminal classes, snd has fcred such anomalies in tlie pro fession as Voorhees. whose chief busi ness it is to traverse the State and bully ignorant juries into acquitting felons. After the closing speech comes miik and water charge to the jury, into which the law compels the judge to inject a se ries of set phrases prescribed by statute, . from tvhich the jury generally get the impression that the prisoner at the bai ls a much injured person, and that each juror is in danger of committing some great crime if he agrees to a verdict of! guilty. If, notwithstanding all this, a verdict in rendered against the defendant, the lawyers proceed to dissect the record with a view to discover some error upon which they may bamboozle the Supreme Court into a reversal of the case. The Supreme Court is the citadel in which the persecuted felon finds his last and surest defense. He may fail in ihe grand jnrf room, hi.s suborned witnesses may be discredited, the petit jury may tie proof against the seductive, eloquence of a closing speech, ''and the" charge of the tConrt may possibly fail to raise a doubt of guilt in their minds; but after ad thi: there are many chances that the Supreme Court may discover some way for his es icape. The assiduity - with which the judges of that court labor tcr prevent the . punishment of crime is really wonderful A perusal of their published tlccisions for the last fifteen or sixteen years will show thi?t scores ofthe worst felons, ofr ..the State have been set at liberty for reasons Since the New York election, we have aoittfvlfll that it is difficult "to persuade Ireceiyed the profile-of the editor of the give the alarm, with the firmly spokjn words: '"No more of that," and led hick to sur vey the demolition of the prison-dtwrs.

He appeared dull, remorseful, and stupid. Had little conception of . his condition spiritually, and evinced little concern about his future interests. Said he was never a member of any church, he hoped God would save his soul ; said he was in nocent of the crime ; was at home with his wile; but only manifested physical terror or death, seeming to tremble and Shake.
