Redmond in Aheville Jail He tells
the Story of his Capture.
Cor. of the News and Observer.
Asiieville, N. C, April '2(, 1331.
Itedmond, the notorious outlaw, who,
about four years ago, killed in Transyl
vania county, a deputy marshal by the
name Duckworth, and who has been, in
defiance of the law. running at huge ever
since, was brought to AsheviHenu Sunday
last and committed to jail. He was, at
the time of his commitment and is yet,
sufieiing considerably from the effect of
wounds which he received in the endea
vor to capture him. lib is unable to
walk, and seven balls are yet in his flesh,
and were it not fo'his iron will 1 have
no doubt they would prove fatal. In ap
pearance the man is quite a different
thing from what oao would expect to see
iu an outlaw. Iu figure, he is small aud
his face, which is that of a bay U!i-looking
man twenty-seven years of age, is
pleasant more than otherwise. There is
nothing repulsive about him that I can
discover except his ::a:ne, and his crim?.
and bloodshed- is exaggerated beyond
bounds. The truth, so far as I have been
able to gather it, is that Dackworth is
the only man he ha8ever slain, aud that
for the last two years he has been living on
the Tennessee River, iu gwain couuty,
the life of a quiet farmer, 'harming no one
and no one molesting him.
The story of his capture, as he gives it
himself, is about this: B;ing at home
one morning nursing his wife who was
sick, he heard his little dog bark up iu
the woods above his house, and thinking
that he had found a squirrel, he (Red
mond) got his gun and started in pusuit.
Going to where the dog was, aud being
perfectly unconscious and hususpieioas
of any one lying in ambush- for him he
was suddenly halted by a party of seven
men not more than ten .steps si way.
Being a little startled and not taking
time for deliberation he turned and
fled, when the whole, parts commenced
to tire ou him, sometimes hitting him
and sometimes missing him. Running
two or three hundred ya:ds, he stumbled
and fell, 4iud being unable to rise, the
party went up aud took possession of
him. They carried him to the Charles
ton jail, where he remained to the
date of his removal here. What the
charge in the warrant under which lie
was arrested was, I have not been able
to learn, but whether it is of any moment
or not, matters but little, for we know
there is a charge against hinj which is a
grave one, and which the poor fellow ;
will now have to answer for the charge cf i

His Own Father Review of d
) From the Charlotte Observer.
During the session of the Carolina
Military Institute for the year 1878,
a young man named W. H. Priester,
of Barnwell county. S. C, was a stu
deritjat that institution, and as such
will be remembered by many of the
citizens of Charlotte. If for 110 other
reason than that on the morning ot
the' i7tli of October of that vear he
ill led a colored man named Tom Har
ley, at. the Mozart Saloon, on Trydu
street, in this city. The killing of
Harjey was for a time wrapped in
mystery, but under the searching in
vestigation of a coroner's jury, facts
were developed which fastened the
deed upon the individual whose name
is given above. The young man dis
appeared, but at the end of about
three weeks voluntarily returned, ac
knowledged the killing and surren
dered himself. With his father he
went to Shelby, where Judge Schenck
was holding the Superior Court of
Cleaveland county, and to avoid im
prisonment he .was at once carried be
fore the Judge on a writ of habeas
corpus. Between the arrival of the
train at Shelby and its departure for
Charlotte, the Judge adjourned the
court for the term, and brought young
Priester, with the witnesses and the
attorneys in the case, to Liucolnton,
where he was given a hearing. Judge
Schenck, sitting as a committing mag
istrate, considering the motive of sell
defense, which had been set up as a
pleaj fully made out, discharged the
prisoner from custody, and hav ing al
ready been expelled from the Insti
tute, he went back to his homy in
And now comes the saddest
part of our story. Y
married a lady who is said to be a
a "most estimable woman," but with
whom, from some cause, he had lived
unhappily. A correspondent of the
Augusta Constitutional, writing from
Barnwell, under date of May 2d, says
that; for this reason "she had resolved
two j or three times to leave vonnir
Priester and return to the house of her
father, but Capt Biiiie, the father, pro
vailed upon her not to leave his son,
as it would no doubt be his ruin. She
remained only iu the hope -he might,
by enduring everything, work some
improvement in ti e young man. His
reek less ingratitude reached its high
est point, and she re-olved to stand it
no further, and on Thursday morn
ing,; at the breakfast table, she re
quested the Captain to remain a mo
ment as she desired to see him.
Young William Henry Priester, the
husband, was at the head of the table
opposite his father, and on hearing
the remark said : "I propose to hear
that conversation." Captain Priester
replied, "Certainly, my ton, i have
no objection. lining Priester went
up stairs lo his room and came down
to where the Captain and Mrs. Pries
ter were standing, aud when within
live or ten feet said : "Father, I'm
going lo kill you." "O do, my son,"
said Capt. Biiiie
. "What for?" He

no ivp:y lurther than a ball,
which the Captain said is the one he
thought passed through his stomach,
entering two inches to the left of the
navel and coining out about the same
distance from the spinal column. The
Captain said he closed iu on his son
after the first shot And caught the pis
tol, but found that the shock from the
first ball was such that he could- not
control the unnatural arm of his sou.
The next ball he thought was the one
that entered the left side and pene
trated into the region of the spleen.
(This ball went through the spleen.)
A third ball lodged in the left wrist,
aud a fourth in the left thiiih, and
the fifth struck a -buck-horn lumlle
knife in his pants pocket, tearing it
up and lodging iu the iron sides.
Captain Priester said that he was shot
so rapidly that he could not save him
self, aud the only thing he did was to
hold on. to the pistol and change the
radge until it was exhausted by the
cruel hand, and then he thought he
struck his son with a stick. Ptter, a
twin brother, who had left the tuble
for the store, hearing the shooting and
the screams of Mrs. Priester, reached
the house too late to render his father
any assistance in the struggle. Capt.
Preister went to Ins More, some two
hundred yardsoff.and undressed him

North Carolina has twenty iron
furnaces, mills, etc., representing a
capital of $60,000. There is no rea
son why it should not be sixty times
that sum. Iron ores abound in many
of our counties and the iron business
ought to be an important industry of
the Stale. 117. Star.
We only have to "bide a wee." If
our people can't or won't invest in
these enterprises, instead of Govern
ment bonds, somebody will, and at no
distant day. It is oi ly a question of
time. Our climate, possessing the
happy mean between the Scylla of the
frozen, snow and flood stricken North
ami Northwest and Chary bd is of the
enervating parched, extreme South,
will ere long attract the immigrant
and the capitalist. Here our fertile

On t lie lolh day of December, 18(52, the
Sixteenth Regiment and three companies
of the Second liatlalion of Featherstone's
Mississippi Ihigade were sent to the front
to relieve a brigade posted at the foot
of Ma rye's Heights, to the left of the
plank road leading from the city towards
Orange Court House. Between them and
the city was a tan-yard and many out
buildings. Much sharpshooting was iu
dalged iu on both sides, opportunities
being afforded us by squads of Federals,
who iu twos and threes kept moving
rapidly from behind extemporized shel
ters to their rear, posted in the city limits
proper. While a squad of these were
bra ing our shots, one of them was seen
to drop, while ail his companions, but
one, taking advantage of our empty rifles,
noun got to cover behind the houses.

then, with characteristic admiration for
