The negroes were arrested two I

for the defendants. Judge Wilson said!
yesterday momir.;; that he co?!d ?"f?r
no reason why the negroes should bel

connect them with th? cbbo. and ro
marked that if they were later wanted |
the sheriff could get them.
It scorns that the negroes have
been htld on very insufficient evi
dence, according to general opinion.
The only "?ossible way In which any
Suspicion could appoint to them was
the fact that Mr. Lee was said to
have been seen about one mile where
the negroes live $n? buggy tracks
