The Asherilte Pioneer, 'of the 28th'
February, contains a full account of the
killing of Deputy Marshal Burns, here
tofore alluded to in these columns:
. On the 10th -lost. Deputy Marshal
3 urns, in company with Mr. WP, All
man, loft Burns' house ia Swain tounty
to execute several warrants and capiases
which he had in his hands upon parties
living in Graham, and : that portion of
8 wain county, which borders upon Gra
ham. They went to Cheoah, in Graham
county and found an illicit distillery in
full blast, aud a tot illicit whisky.
While at the stiil-houso they were sur
rounded by a lot of illicit distillers, and
were compelled to remain in the house
during the night. An Indian came to
the still-house for some whisky, which
he violently attempted to carry away,
but was knocked down by Burns and
Ere vented from taking the whisky,
urns then told him that if he did not go
and tell Indian chief with whom
Burns was on intimate terms, to
come with his Indians and relieve him,
ho would kill him. The' Indian went
to Rosses directed aud t about daylight
Ross and his Indians came and took
Burns and Allman outof the way of the
threatening mob. After Buixs was re
lieved from the place we hare men
tioned, he discovered that he had left
some important official papers at his
house in Swain, and leaving Allman
in a safe place he set out home,
which he reached fn safety secured
his papers and was on his return to
Cheoah, where he left Allman. On Sun
day, the 15th, as he was traveling on the
road 12 miles from Charleston on the
Tennessee river, he was shot through
the heart and killed instantly by Wm.
R. Ellis. The shooting' was done with
a ritle-gun, and at such close quarters
that the patching of the bullet was
found in the hole where the ball pene
trated the body. There were two
men in company with: Dills, and the
three were removing a cask of
illicit whiskey. When they discovered
these men, Walls and Freeman, pur
sued their course. They stated that
after they had gone about one hundred
yards, they heard a gun tire, whereupon
they turned to go back where they had
left Dills, but met him in a very high
stato of excitement, moving toward
them. He told them not to attempt to
go back in that direction or he would
kill them, and began reloading his gun.
The above facts in connection with
other circumstances appearing at the
coroner's inquest. Dills was immedi
ately arrested and taken to Webster, in
Jackson county, where he was lodged
in jail, and is now held in close confinement.

notice, which was signed "many ladies'
but it was written in a very mascnlinish

The old fellow remarked, "By tarn, let

other envelope he had just received,

tashioii.iMe woman ami live in the city,
and though she now lives in the country
and brings in chickens to town, she
hadn't forgotten her city manners, and
like Mr. l ureydrop, she is ever in
structing young Archibald in deport
ment. Arcme was in his best homes nun
suit to-day, and his well-set head of
hair was combed as sleek as a peeled
onion. He sat at the table with Mrs.
stubbs, and his eyes popped open to the
very whites as the waiters In their white
aprons flew around him. They brought
in apple pie. Archie cleaned his plate
ana tne waiter askeo, Have some
more?" and Archie, with his jaws puff
ed out, full of pie, nodded his head.
Mrs. Stubbs looked a thunderbolt at
him, but a crowd was at the table, aud
she couldn't say a word. Ho cleaned
out the second plate and was licking his
knite, when the waiter Baid, More pie,

just as Mrs. Stubbs went to kick at him
nnder the table and struck a large fleshy
man on me smn, who grew very red in
the face, and said, "I beg your pardon,
madam." Mrs. Stubbs and Archie
walked home, that even inc. Thev had
gotten a mile out on the Kham Ikatte
road, aud Mrs. Stubbs hadn't spoken a
word. Finally, she said, " Archie, will
you have some more pie 7 " Yes,
ma'am," said Archie, Zip, she took
him, side of the head, and knocked him
up in the corner-of the fence. He
didn't know what in the world was the
matter. They walked on a piece further,
when Mrs. Stubbs remarked. " JVrhaps
Archibald, you will take some more of
the apple pier" xes, ma am, said
Archie, and he sorter held his hand
out. Slap ! She struck him, and he sat
down on his stomach. Mrs. Stubbs
actually knocked Archibald down three
times between here and her home be

Another "Lord HrooD" in the
Field, but not on o Extensive a
Style. A man by the name of Beard
on, came to Clarksville, Va., about a
year ago, who was quite a swell and
maketh lavish expenditures of stamps,
having a thousand or so in his pocket.
He was accompanied by what he called
a wife, her sister and a little girl. They
lived elegantly he disported himself
gailylv.making many boon companions
with nis wines aud fine liquors. He
professed to be from Canada, and
finally rented a hotel which he ran in
fine style, entertaining numerous other
true Canadians who had come down
before bim, and from whem it is re
ported he borrowed several thousands
in hard cash easily gulling them, but
haring run to the end of his gaunlet
he conc'uded it was best to fold his tent
and silently proceed to other pastures
more green, so he goes to a lirery stable
a few nights ago, obtains a vehicle with
a rapid team, puts his so-called wife and
sister aboard (haring previously sent
the little girl away for child-like sim
plicity in giving wind to seme of his in
side character, not so agreeable to him)
and with some little traps, cracks his
whip for the red hills of old "No rf Car
ol! ny." His quandam friends of the
tobacco village fleetly followed his in
distinct trail, and warmed him up as far
as Henderson, from thence into the
goodly town of Oxford, where he tarried
but for a "water," with a regular fox
chase to near this city thence to Morris
ville yesterday morning by train, where
his pursuers again obtained fresh horses
and continued the hunt in the direction
of HUlsboro, where in all likelihood
he was bagged to-day, of which impor
tant knowledge we are bereft on account
of the great western's again- being non
workibus to that point. If captured he
will probably be brought to this city to
await a requisition irom the governor
of Virginia and entertained at the
hotel so sumptuous in rear of our noble
court house.

of Queen of the South Lodge, No. 6, I.

will take place at 2 o'clock. All the
members are requested to be puctually
on hand at 121 o'clock, at the lodge room
on Thursday, as it is designed to com-
lete tho parade by 3 o'clock. This
odge, we are glad to learn is in a most
flourishing condition and is effecting
marvellous good in this community
among the colored people. Thirty-eight
initiations took place last Monday night
and a large numberof applications were
received. We respectfully invite the
attention of all interested to this notice.

gives a ririd account of events, which
was a hard struggle for the friends of

his friends rallied the next morning,
'and succeeded in carrying the day.

A New Trial Refused. As will
be seen in our Supreme Court proceed
ings, on yesterday, the judgment of the
lower court was affirmed in the cause
of the State vs. David Collins, white,
and Alexander Blalock, colored, from
jounsion county, ror the murder or a
colored man there some months ago
This murder Is represented to hare been
one of great brutality inflicted upon
their victim for informing upon them
in certain larcenies. Two of the Col
lins' s (one of whom escaped,) with Bla
lock, went to the bouse (at night) of the
old colored man, and while Blalock
stood sentinel, the Collins's beat him
with a weeding hoe so violently, that
death ensued in three days thereafter.

Fire in Petersburg, Va. We see
from our exchanges that quite a fire
occurred in Petersburg Suuday morn
ing last, of which the associated press
failed to inform us. The Index-Appeal
says the tire originated about half past
two o'clock on Sunday morning fn a
frame building situated in the rear of
and adjoining the old Appeal office on
Bank street, and at the time of this
writing threatens the destruction of sev
eral adjacent buildings. The flames
spread first to au out-house belonging
to Mr. Thomas Baxter, and then to the
large warehouse occupied by Mr. John
Arrington A Sons as a storehouse for
cotton, which is now in full blaze, and
promises to burn for some time to come,
since it is said to contain from 400 to 500
bales of cotton, not more than a dozen
of which were saved.
Unfortunately the steamer America,
on reaching the spot, was found to be
entirely disabled, and hence the supply
of water was necessarily limited.
The house occupied by Messrs. John
Arrington A Sons as a cotton store
house, was insured in the Mutual As
surance Society of Virginia, Dr. James
W. Clai borne of this city agent for $4,000,
and the frame building in the rear of
the building formerly occupied by the
Index-Appeal, snd which they had only
a few days since vacated, was insured
with Mr. John B. Stevens for $400. From
the rear door of the Appeal building
to the frame buildings in which the fire
originated, was scattered along the plat
form a quantity of straw, for the pur
puse, it is presumed, of destroying the
Appeal building also, and it has just
oeen seen that the cotton or .Messrs. Ar
rington A Sons was wel 1 set on fire about
the centre of the building on the second
and third floors. We have sought in
vain to ascertain the insurance on the
cotton, which is variously estimated at
from fire hundred to one thousand bales,
but as none of the Messrs. Arrington
werejon tne spot, we could not do so.

Washington, March 3. Sen

pressing alarm at the unlawful ac
tion of the secretary of the treasury
in issuing reserves that never before
had any civilized government re
sorted to, putting out irredeemable
paper currency in time of peace,
and asked Congress to immediately
prohibit the secretary from issuing
any more of the reserve, and to
withdraw at once the amount issued
to this date. Refered to the com
mittee on finance.
Mr. Fenton said the signers to the
memorial represented at least five
hundred million dollars.
Mr. West submitted a resolution
instructing the committee on con
tingent expenses to inquire as to
the propriety of furnishing each
senator with a copy of a text-book
published by W.-H. andO. H.Mor
rison ; also including the national
banking laws, and in formation con
cerning the public debt. Adopted.
Mr. West moved to postpone the
centennial bill, and take up the ar
my appropriation bill. Mr. Sher
man suggested that the centennial
bill could be disposed of in an hour,
and that the finance resolution
which had been postponed until to
day, could be proceeded with. Mr.
Sumner advocated proceeding with
the appropriation bill, and express
ed the belief that if Congress went
into th- centennial business it would
result in an expenditure of thirty
millions. The motion of Mr. West
was lost; ayes, 1G, noes 30. Mr.
Carpenter said, that to-morrow
when the senator from Indiana, Mr.
Morton, who was now detained
from the chamber by indisposition,
would be present, he would ask to
take up his Louisiana bill for the
purpose of making his promised re
marks. :
Mr. Hamilton, of Maryland, gave
notice of his intention to submit re

centennial bill was discussed to ad

cure homesteads to actual settlers
on the public Domain. The bill
was amended by adding a proviso
that nooath should be required of
any one desiring to secure a home

constitution of the United States,
this was mainly for the benefit of
the people in the southern States,
who under existing laws requiring
the taking of the iron clad oath can
not avail themselves of the benefit
of the pre-emption laws. The bill

early hour this morning, a murder
and suicide occurred in Prince
street, between two former part
ners in business. Their names are
Anthony Barli and Peter Tarchini.
Thev were formerly in with an
other man named Sycardy Barli.
He did not attend properly to the
business, which was a source of re

the other partners, who bought
him out two months ago. Barli
and Tarchini met a week ago and
quarrelled, but did not meet again
until tins morning as they were
going to work. They quarrelled
again, when Barli drew a revolver
and shot Tarchini in the breast,
after which he shot himself in the
head. Coth men being instantly

In the case of Chaffee et al, vs.

the penalty provided by the forty
eighth section of the internal reve
nue act of June 30th, 18G4, against
the plaintiffs in error for having in
their possession certain distilled
spirits for the purpose of sale, with
the design of avoiding tne duties
imposed thereon this court will re
verse the judgment of conviction
on various grounds of evidence and
for the following error in the in
struction to the jury. The court in
substance instructed the jury that
in this class of cases the govern
ment need only prove the defen
dants presumptively guilty of an
other duty thereupon devolved
upon them to establish their inno
cence and if they did not they were
guilty beyond a reasonable doubt
on this point. It is held that the
error is palpable on its statement.
All the authorities condemn it. It
sets at naught the established
principles, and justifies the criti
cism of counsel, that it substantially
withdrew from the defendants their
right of trial by jury, and convert
ed what, at law, was intended for
their protection, the right io refuse
to testify, into the machinery for
their sure destruction. Mr. Justica
