KORE TRO'JCLSIN POPE COUNTY. We are shocked at tae Intelligence from Pope county, published in jester day's Gazette. - It " seems .that the trouble are not ended an we were begin ning to hope was the case. Another act has been added to the bloody drama, and the lives of two more men sacrificed to the spirit J revenge, or to the mistaken policy of the executive, who permits men charged with high crime to go at large without bond, to terrorize over the people of. Pope county. Aa at present advised, the taking oS of Hickox and Brown appears appears to us only leas atrocious than the killing killing of Hale and Tucker, because the last two were murdered by their guard who were strong in numbers and who should have protected them. ' It is idle to say there is no power to suspend from oCce two oiUcers charged with high crimes. The circuit juJe could and should Lave suspended thera, or the governor should have had theta arrested and confine! on their f,ulare within a reasonable time to give euillciect UmJ. Tbe power meat rest somewhere or do to as tin
