L : TOD R CALDWELL,
Mr. Robbins, of Rowan, said that the
message contained information upon one
point only. It seems that one Allen Bettis
has been arrested in this State, and is now
in prison in South Carolina. The Governor
has very little to say on this subject. If
Federal Troops see fit to come into North
Carolina and unlawfully arrest her citzens,
it appears that the. Governor will take no
steps to have them teturned to their
It is the duty of the Governor to inves
tigate this matter. If this man Bettis has
been unlawfully arrested, he should be re
leased. He may be a criminal a great
criminal but he should be arrested ac
cording to law. If he is a criminal, there
is a way by which be can be arrested and
turned over to the Federal authorities in
South Carolina. . If he is a criminal he
should be tried I have no objection to
his being tried. This is the waytyrrany
begins. First by arresting criminals. Then
by arresting innocent citizens. The Gov
ernor should demand that Bet tia be re
turned to this State. No roan whether he
President or not, but a tyrant will uphold
such unlawful arrests. 1 We should not let
his matter rest. We should agitate it un
til the law of the land is observed. I shall
not keep still upon this subject as long as
I hold a public position. We should watch
this matter. We should not allow prece
dents of this kind to be set. The liberty
of tbe citizen is in danger. If the people
will look and see where these outrages

Raleigh, N. C, Nov. 28th, 187
Hon. JS1 J. Warren,
President of the Senate:
Sir: I have the honor to acknowledge
the receipt of a resolution adopted ly the
body over which you preside, requesting
the Governor to lurnislr the Senate! with
any information that 'he may hare rrirard
ing the seizure, of any citizens of North
Carolina, by Federal'troopa or officials,
and the carrying of them beyond; the
borders of the State, and there imprisoned
without a bearing; fend also to inform
your honorable body what steps the Gov
ernor has taken to enquire into the facts,
and to vindicate the dignity of the State.
In reply to this resolution I have the
nonor to miorm tne senate tnat I have re
ceived a communication lrom persons pur
porting to be citizens of Cleaveland coun
ty, informing me that Federal troops' had
entered the county of Cleaveland from
' South Carolina, arrested one Allen Bettis,
and took him beyond the limits of this
State, into said State of South Carolina,
and the said communication called upon
me as Governor to tako 6teps to have the
said Bettis returned to his home in Cleave
land county. I have also been informed
from other sources that said Allen Betfisis
charged with being either a principal , or
accessory to the murder of one Thomas
Rountree, in the State of South Carolina,
by a band of disguised . men, and thai be
was arrested as above described by orders
from an officer in command of the Federal
troops stationed in .said State; and hat
he is held to answer for tbe crime alleged
against him, before the Circuit Court of
the United States for tbe District of South
In further answer to the resolution of
Senate, I have to inform your honorable
body, that I forwarded the communication
referred to above, to the President of j the
United States, and invited his attention to
the complaint therein contained.
As it does not appear to me that the
Governor or the civil authorities of South
Carolina have anything to do with thejar ;
rest of 6aid Bettis, either directly or indi-'
rectly, but that it was done by the Federal
Troops, I deemed it entirely useless) to
open any correspondence with the Eieca
five of the subjeet, as I feel confident tbat
said official would not be inclined or dis
posed o take upon bis State our causer of
have been committed, it will be found that
they commenced where the people had no
confidence in the judiciary and tbe courts
of the State. I think tbat a little discus
sion spent upon this subject will do much
Pagan Rome knew enough of liberty to
protect the personal liberty of the citizen.
You remember how a Roman official trem
bled In his boots when Paul proclaimed
himself a Roman citizen. If a citizen of
Great Brittain had been arrested in this
unlawful mannner, the uueen, her minis
ters, and tbe people would have been
aroused, and war would be declared i
necessary to protect the liberty of the citi
zen. F'believe that there is great con
spiracy on band to secure the re-election
of President Grant, and I believe the Presir
dent -is at the head of that conspiracy.
The Republican party expects to ride into
power as the result of this Ku Klux mat
ter. That party pretends to deprecate
Ku Klux outrages, but they thank God
whenever one is committed. Why, sir, it
has not been Ionj? since a Governor was
impeached, tried, nd convicted of an
offense similar to this th.tt ol arresting
citizens without authority tliw ; mid the
very man whom we unsiateu lias been
taken up by the- President, and made his
mouth-piectj thronh tin Washington
Chronicle. The editor m that paper de
nounces this Ku Klux matter aj a ''Nca
Rebellion," when he knows that there is
no rebellion any v nere. Timcvill hnnge.
The paity in the minority now will get
control "of this country some day, and if
tkis precedent is set, the very men who are
defending Governor Caldwell for the course
he has seen fit to. take in reference to this
matter, ' may Ik. arrested and imprisoned
jjust as Alien liettis. I move that the
message of the Governor be referred to a
jCommittee of three Senators.
Mr. King said tbat the Governor wa3
able to defend himself. Ther-i are two
ijsides to every question. I wish the mili
litary troons had all the murderers out of
ipunu vufiiuu, xukixs uo military
.trials in South Carolina. Tbe writ of ha
,beas corpus is suspended in that State but
the trials are by jury. If Bettis is a mur
derer let him be tried. If be is innocent
let bim be released. A murderer should
be arrested anywhere. Judge Caldwell
' charged the jury when I was sheriff, that
t was the right and duty of the officers
to arrest a murderer at any time and at
any place. Gentlemen raise a great bowl
ovir the amst of this man, but nothing
was, and nothing is said of the hundreds of
meo. women and children who have b'een out-
raged ly this Klanf We do not hear a word
In condemnation of the murder of Senator
Stephens or Wjatt Outlaw, a respectable col
ored man, who was banged iu tli Court House
yard in tbe town of Graham. There no danger
of innocent men suffering. ' The Governor has
done his duty in this matter. He lorwarded to
' Pr&ddent Grunt the complaint of the citizens
Of (-leaveland, and called tbe attention of the
President to tbe arrest of this man. What
more could he do? VVojTld gentlemen have
the Governor to bring about a conflict with
the General Government ? If not, what more
' is it these gentlemen would have the Governor
do? It appears to me tbat fill thij clamor
'gainst the Governor is for nothing. If that
Officer has not done Lin daty in the premise-,
tbeu l am mistaken.
i! Mr. Brogden defended the Governor. He
6&id that tQe outrages of the Kuklux made it
necesnary to pass the Kuklux bill. South Car
olina is in this district. If thi man ha ben
arrested and carried to South Carolina and im
prisoned, be will be tried there, iotheeame
court and by the tame Judge, who presides
over the United States Courts in this State.
The Governor baa done his duty in this mat
ter. He transmitted the communication from
the citizens of Cleaveland to the President,
and called the attention of the President to
f Mr. Olds said that the states of Maryland,
Virginia, North and South Carolina, compose
one Judicial District. This alters the case.
It is not like an arrest made by tbe authorities
bt the State of South Carolina ; therefore, I
think the Governor has done his duty in not
interfering in the matter.
'Judge Bond, circuit Judge, presides in South
Carolina with the district mJe, just as he pre
sides with Judge Brooks ib ttis State. His
circuit cxtei-d el over the four States ien
tloned ; hence this man 301114 was arrested in
Judge brook's circuit. Is imprisoned iu the
same circuit, and is held lor trial by the same
Judge and by a jury of his countrymen It we
reter this matter to the President he will refer
U3 to the law'governing the case.. Taking this
view of the rase, the Governor ha done his
Whole duty in forwarding the complaint of the
citizeus oi Cleaveland o the frtfideut, and
asking tbe attention of th - lrsident to the
matter. For these reasoua I shall vote against
the resolution of Mr. Graham, ol Orange.
,Mr. Speed thought .the resolution merely
authorized the Attorney General to take such
steps as he may deem neceseary to test the le
gality of tbe imprisonment ot Btttis. Repub
lican Senators should not get to excited over
Mr. Edwards said that he was mortified : that
he was humiliated that we hive a Governor
who could send ncu a message a we h vc re
ceived in response to puch a resolution. From
the readinir ot the nieausje, the Governor had
information from ciiiz ti ol Clvuveli.n l cou.-
Executive of anv people. To whom is it that
the Governor is bowlrg in slaving submission ?
lie thinks it is ihe Presi lent ot tbe United
States; bat he is mistaken. It is to a subal
tern officer who has raided into this State, ar
rested, carried away, and imprisoned in another
State one or our citizens, we are to suppose
that the President will take notice of this mat
ter, court martial and cashier this officer. ;
Mr. Graham, of Orange, moved as a substi
tute for the motion of Mr. Robbins a resolution
that the message be referred to the Attorney
General, with authority to employ such coun-
- sei as may be necessary, to apply to a Judge
of the Supreme Court of the United States,
- for a writ of hvbeas corpus, to test the legality
' of the Imprisonment ot the citizen named in
the message ol tb Governor. :
. Mr. Lehman said that it this man was arres-
i ted without a warrant tbat that would , have
been a violation ot law ; but it a deputy Mar-
. shal was along with tbe military when the
arrest was made, and had a warrant for the
man who was arrested, then I am of opinion
that tbe military had a right to carry him to
South Carolina. It has been decided by Chief
Justice Marshall tbat in a contiguous territory
such as Cleaveland county is to York county.
South Carolina, it . is good law that process
will run iu such contiguous county. This was
decided in the case oi Aaron Burr. Tbe Gov-
' ernor cannot issue a requisition for Bettis
'unless he is a fugitive from justice, or under
an indictment for crime. 4
Mr. Jones said that be did not attach much
importance to this matter. The army of tbe
United States is the law of this land. Tbe
President is now invested with power sufficient
to take the Governor of this State, the presid
ing officer of this body, and tbe members ot
this and the other branch of the Legislature
out of their seats.
Mf nerves thrilled as I listened to the elo
queuce of the Senator from Rowan. He spoke
as if ne was speaking in the year I860, and not
in 1371. The death knell of civil liberty has
been sounded in this country. Tbe law under
which tbe President is acting has been ratified
by the Northern people in their late elections,
This state of things will continue until a sense
of reason not Justice 6ball return to thepeo
1 pie. It will end when that takes place, and not
before, l repeat, the United States army
makes the law of this countiy, and we need
not be surprised at men being arrested and Im
- prisoned just as Bettis has been. .
The resolution '.was amended and . made a
joiat resolution, and under the rules lies over
until Friday next.
A message was received from the House of
Representatives proposing to adjourn until
Friday at 10 o'clock.
The Senate concurred in the proposition, and

hundreds of citizens of the State out of
their money, which money still remained
in the hands of the above company, (Jos.;

Mr. Cawthorn (col.) for the benefit of
the House read chapter 42, of the laws of

Mr. Ashe spoke against the repeal f the
act granting the charter, the rights and
privileges granted under the charter had
been sold to. a gentleman of Wilmington,
who was -in honest and upright citizen,
who desired to conduct the business in a
honest manner, and he was opposed to the
repeal of the act, and he would therefore
move to refer the bill to the Cummitrecon'

THE AMERICAN WASHER I
PRICE, $5.SO. !
The American Washer Saves Money, Time, and
''-!-.-I : . Drudgery.
The Fatigue of Washing Day no Longer
Dreaded, but Economy, Efficiency, ana
; Clean uiothing, Sure.
; In calling public attention to this little
machine, a few of the invaluable qualities,
(not possessed by any other washing ma
chine yet invented,) are here enumerated.
It is ! the smallest, most compact, most
portable, most simple in construction, most
easily operated. A child ten years old, with
prenena ana enectuaiiy use it. There is no
adjusting, no screws to annoy, no delay in
adapting! It is always ready for use I 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 the 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 ! In a word,;
the ablution or any fabric, lrom a Quilt to a
Lace Curtain or Cambric Handkerchief, are
equally , within the capacity of this LITTLE
GEM! lit can be fastened to any tub and
taken off at will.
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 j
fast friends .of the machine.
We have testimonials without end. settins
forth its numerous advantages over all oth
ers, and from hundreds who have thrown
aside the unwieldy, useless machines, which
have siernallv failed to accomplish the oh-
ectpromised in prominent and loud sound-
It is as perfect for washing: as a wrinsrer is
for wringing. The price another paramount
inducement to purchasers, has been placed
so low that it is within the reach of every
housekeeper, and there is no article of do
mestic economy that will repay the small
investment so soon. r - '
'";- ' $5.50.
All that is asked for this GREAT LABOR
SAVER, is a fair trial. ! We guarantee each
machine to do its work perfectly.
