The excitement , conaequont upon HOWS
of tlio outrage in Bedford precinct has
partially subsided , and tliu threats of
lynching the villuin hnvo boun auper-
coded by a determination to lot thu
law take its courao , and the fiend ru >
ceivo the full punishment merited by
his bullish crhuu. Thu particulars of
the vile vffatr are as foil iw : The
negro , whose uamo is Oloyd , left
his woik in the fluid and wont
to the house during the absence
of Mr. Copeland. Choking the poor
worn in to iiinriisibility ho succeeded
in hii base design and when alio re
covered coneciouauess ho niudu her
prnmiao not to toll anybody , threaten
ing to kill hur if ohu did lie then
loft the house and then returned to
his work in thoCeld. Mrs. Copeland ,
as eoon us &ho could collect her
tered flenses , Btartud for a neighbor's
house , but on the way met a couple of
nit-n aud told them her etory. The
men secured the assistance ot a constable -
stable and arrested the bl.icn villain ,
whom they found working unconcern
edly in the field which h > ) hud but a
short Jimo previous left. lie was
brought to the city and given u pre
liminary examination , tlie result , of
h which was his committal to j til to
av.'ait thu setting of the district court.
The victim of the b'aek ' brute is
about 65 yeaie old. For name time
past she has been in poor health , and
it was feared the shock to her system
would be mure than aho could bear.
Bho has since iticovirtd and will bear
testimony ilut will put Cioyd where
ho belongs in the piniitenti.iry.
