CARTHAGE, NORTH CAROLTHA, THURSDAY, HAY 16, 1878

sole heir of Don Guiroan de Mansoria,
' a grandee of Spain of the second elate,

on thai evert as a bly' duty and in con
formity thereto: removed into Aragon
where I had a castle situated at the foot
of Mount Maladstta, on the enreuie
frontier, between Spain and Fiance.
:-Tbu was in the year 1779, when Spain
was atiirbeaatifui and mighty, a thobgh
. the nobility and clergy ruled it wib an
iron despotism ; and tbe feuda laws,
more rigidly enforced than they had
ever been, even in France, were better
consolidated by the perfect understand
ing on this point between the priests and
tbe crewn. The nob'es ruled the peo-
pi and the king ruled -all. For -my
parr, I fraukly admit that I was proud
of my title of Count and prized the pre-
rogati v. a of my rank and the rights of
my birth. My steward dispensed ju
tice to my va-sals in my name, and
when his decisons appeand unjust to

great gateol the cattle, pithi.y annourc

with in i be limits ot'my ennty. By
law ull smugglers were subject to this
riorou peralty, to which my deputy
always condemned tlitm with unsparing
severity, and wliloh I always commuted
to a lighter punishment. At this time
the smugglers were in greater numbers
than they are now, and as I bad re

sals, who patrolled all the defiloa and
by ro ds, scoured tbo mountains, and
resisted! the officers of the ki.ig'flcu3-
tonis oa ail iccnsion?. This rigorous
pursuit of the smugglers increased their
audacity and inspired them with desper
ation and revauge.. Before they were
only dealers in prohibited articles ; they
now became brigands, organized regular
bands into troops, and opposed open re
sixtanco in the field to tbe. king's nnd
my jurisdiction. Ona day fit ty of my
people were attacked near La Picade
and cruelly massacred by these bandits ;
whereupon I vowed never agaiu to re
mit or commute the teutence of my
deputy, but to bung, up the first emu
