Burglary. On Sunday night last, says
the Ashcville Pioneer of tho 5th inst., sever
al young, ladies from Union, S. C, who
liave been f pending tho summer months in
this town, were made the victims of the
most daring robbery that has occurred In

a warrant against W. E. Pierce,Esq., Josiah
Tnrher Jr., Nathan Underwood and T. F.
Lee, Sheriff, for an assault on him, without
authority of law; and the case was heard
before W. II. Harrison, Esq.
This action was brought against tho three
first parties, as tho originators, or conspira
tors, and against T. F. Lee, SherifT,for serv
ing a warrant without the official seal of the
Magistrate, W. E. Pierce. . The evidence as
to the part Mr. Turner played in this farce,
will more fully appear in tho next scene,
which follows. 'Squire Harrison held, we
believe, that a ealtoa Magistrate's war
rant, was not requisite to make the instru
ment valid and effective, and the case was
dismissed. . .
- ' ' ' Scene 3.
Col. Samuel T. Carrow, U. S. Marshall,
then procured a warrant against Josiah Tur
ner, Jr., for conspiracy with others to pre
vent, or obstruct tho execution of the U. S.
laws.- (This warrant was issued under the
act of Congress of April last.) The case was
heard before Commissioner Shaffer Messrs.
Phillips and Luske appearing for the United
States,and Judge Fowle and Mr. Deveruex,
for the defence.
Capfc J. Q. D'Carteret testified that he
went with Mr. Turner to the country about
two weeks previous; that they went to
the house of W. E. Pierce,Esq., about seven
miles from the city; that on the way, not
the slightest, intimation,in conversationwas
made to this suit of Underwood vs. Carrow
and Bosher ; that on their arrival at the resi
dence of W. E. Pierce.Esq., Mr. Turner and
Pierce were engaged In conversation .which
he, D'Carteret did not sufficiently hear to
understand he.D'C. withdrew that he did
hear Mr. Turner say something about, the
law having been violated ; that he had heard
Turner say something about his, Pierce's,
noi being wanted until the proper witness
coijdd bo had ; that on their return, they did
not talk about the matter.
W. E. Pierce, Esq., testified to the fact of
th visit by Mr. Turner and Mr. DeCarteret;
tht Mr. Turner, asked him if ho would go
to Ttaleigh and try a case ; that the law had
been violated ; didn't recollect asking him
what law and Mr. Turner did not tell him ;
that he didn't desire to know anything
about it, if he was to try the case ; that he
consented, if he had tho jurisdiction; that
Mr. Turner assured him of his jurisdiction,
and he promised to be in Raleigh ontha
Friday following, and that was to-day (fast
Friday); that he thinks this visit from Mr.
Turner and Capt. DeCarteret was on Satur
day, of last week ; that he did try the case ;
that when he came to Raleigh, he went to
Mr. Turner's office, and found there, Na
than Underwood ; that he found the war
rant and affidavit ready drawn up ; that he
signed the warrant, and swore Underwood
on the .written affidavit ; don't recollect
whether 'the papers were handed to him by
Mr. Turner or Mr. Devcreux but by one
of them ; that he "recognized" Mr. Carrow
and Mr. Bosher to Wake court; that he
didn't understand much about, law, but
knew something of common sense; that in
politics he was a Conservative of the strog
est4sort, if'conscrvative" means to do right.
Squire Pierce was asked the question di
rectly, by Mr. Phillips, if Mr. Turner as
signed any reason why he, Pierce, was call
ed on for this special service?
Squire P. answered, No, ho thought not.
But his impression was, (if impression was
w6rth anything) . , j,
"Yes, sir," said Mr. Phillips, "we want to
Well, sir, continued Mr. Pierce, my impression-was
that he, Mr. Turner, did not
desire Squire Harrison to try the case, as
he, Harrison, would give a decision which
would injure him with his party.
Nathan Underwood testified that he lived
in Moore county , that he was summoned
down to Raleigh to attend, the Federal
Court as a witness, as he understood ; that
while here ho was arrested by Womble,
and-carried to tho Marshal's office that the
Marshal directed Bosher to put him in jail ;
he was sent up stairs in tho Marshal's office
and! kept until the afternoon,-and was
then taken and lodged In the Court House
with other prisoners ; that he was released"
tho iiext day, and told there was nothing
against him; that on his way t home, and
when! near tho Court House, ho was met
and 'stopped by Mr. Turner, Mr. Turner
asked him some questions ; he told . Mr.
Turner he had been arrested and confined
without being told what for that he did
not know what for ; Mr. Turner told him
that vas a violation of the law, and he Un

days; ago, he received a verbal message

i It is tho smallest, most compact, most
portable, most simple in construction, most
easily operated. A child ten years ola, with
a few hours practice, can Jhoroushly com
prehend and effectually use it. There is no
adjusting, no screws to annoy, no delay in
adapting! .It is always ready for use! It
is a perfect little wonder ! It is a miniature
giant, doing more work and of a better
quality, than the most elaborate and costly.
One half of tho labor is fully saved by its
use, and the clothes will last one-half longer
than by the old plan of the rub board. It
will wash the largest blanket. Three shirts
at a time, washing thoroughly 1 In a word,
the ablution of any fabric, from a Quilt to a
Lace Curtain or Cambric Handkerchief, are

taken off at will. s
No matter how deep rooted a prejudice
may exist against Washing Machines, the
moment this little machine is seen to per
form its wonders, all doubts of its cleansing
efficacy; and utility are banished, and the
doubter and detractor at. once become the
fast friends of the machine. !

Dr. Blacknall, of tho Yarboro House, has
given some attention to this subject, and
we venture to assert that no finer stock or
better looking swino will bo on exhibition
than those raised by him, in the; city of
Raleigh, during tho past year. Indeed, we
doubt if, with the close of the fair, j tho Dr.
will be allowed to keep any of his present
stock, save, perhaps, the pairs from which
ho lias raised. Those who see the pigs, de
clare they must havo a pair and we hope,
if tho Dr. dispo3oa of them, he will placo

from Mr. Turner to come to Raleigh ; that
ho cano after receiving that message, and
went td the office of Mr. Turner; that in the
afternoon he was at the office o Mr. Tur
ner again, and there met Magistrate Pierce,
and;. Signed the paper which was handed
him i that ho did not write the card that ap
peared in the Sentinel over the signature of
Nathan Underwood, did not know who
wrote it never signed it never authorized
any one to either write or sign it for him,
but that the statements contained in it were
true, and he was glad it had been published.
The above Is about tho substance of the
evidence. We "should have noticed, the
fact,? as related by Mr. Pierce, that he was
notified on Thursday morning, by Messen
ger Dcvercux and Batchclor, Jr., that his
presence was required in Raleigh, forth
with th&t he come on Thursday afternoon,
anticipating his appointed visit for Friday,
and the first trial occurred on Thursday af
ternoon about 4 o'clock. It must be borne
in mind, that Underwood arrived here on
Thursday morning about 9 o'clock.
Marshal Carrow testified that Deputy
Womble brought' Underwood and John
Maddox to his office, with instructions
from Commissioner Shaffer that they were
under arrest he did not look at the warrant
upon which Womblo made the arrest that
he never allowed a Deputy to take blank
warrants from the office that papers when
placed in the hands of Deputies were per
fected. . ;
