The “Eight Case.’*
lIIS ACQUITTAL AND RELEASE
Our readers have heard much during
the last week concerting the “Light
case,” and, intense interest having
been manifested in the case during its
progress, we propose, now, as the mat
ter has finally ended, to give our read
ers a true version of the affair, as we
have been able to gather it. We have
determined to submit the facts fully
ami impartially to our readers, as we
learn, with m>ach regret, that many
false and exaggerated rumors have gain
ed circulation which do great injustice
to the military authorities. From all
that we can learn ai the adjourned term
of the Superior Court, about the last of
July, Win, Light and others, were tried
before tits niniv*, a-.. ,• • i.l -j,-
the charge of having murdered
in this Cos., about
the day of 1864, and
by the verdict of the Jury were all ac
quitted. After the acquittal of Mr.
Win. Light in that case, a suspicion,
(and, we have no doubt, an unfounded
suspicion,) arose, that, although under
bond to appear and stand his trial at
this terra of the Court under the charge
of having murdered J. L. Satterfield in
this county, on the 18tli day of No
vember, 1861, that. l:e would lire the
country and not appear for trial. These
fears were not entertained by the sure
ties upon his bond, but by others. Un
der these circumstances he was arrest
ed, by order of Gen. Pope, and kept in
custody by the military until the court
was ready to try him. 'There being
none but a temporary and insecure
jail in this county, he was kept in mil
itary custody at Rome.
Court being in session he was brought
here from Rome under guard for trial.
On Thursday of last week the case was
taken up. 'The prosecution was con-
ducted by the Solicitor General, J. 11.
Parrott, and Col. Henry P. Farrow, of
Atlanta; the defence by Gen. Wm. T.
Wofford and Col. J. A. W. Johnson,
of Dalton. The argument in the case
closed on last Monday evening, and
the Jury, after being out until Wednes
day 5 o’clock, P. M., returned with a
verdict of “»o/ guilty," whereupon, b\
special order, Mr. Light was released
from military arrest. Tiie following is
the order relieving him :
HDQR’S THIRD MIL. DIST., )
Atlanta, Ga., Sept. 25, 1867. j
It. —William Light, citizen, prison
er, arrested pursuant to instructions
from these Headquarters, dated August
G, 1867, and now on trial belore the
Superior Court of Bartow County,
Cartersvilie, Georgia, will, upon the
termination ol his trial, be surrendered
to the civil authorities.
By command of Brevet Maj. Gen l
11. Clay Wood, Asst. Adj. Gen.
Official : G. Iv. Sanderson.
Capt. 33d U. S. Infantry,
Act. Asst. Adj’t Gcn’i.
Many persons have thought that Mr.
Lio-ht, by order of the military, was on
trial ilte second time for the same of
fence, when, in truth, the trial which he
has been undergoing during the past
week, has no connection whatever with
the trial he underwent a tew weeks
j The prosecution was faithfully, vig
orously, and ably conducted bv Messrs.
Parrott and Farrow. They discharged
j their duty—their whole duty, and noth
| ing but their duty. Mr. Light has
been triuii’ohantly acquitted, and we
congratulate him on his acquittal. He
is a voung in in of fine character—made
a good soldier—has been acquitted of
all charges—and we trust will live a
long life of usefulness in our county.
When a soldier he may have done
some things, in war, under orders,
which in ..he view of civil law appear
ed to be criminal. lie is now acquit
ted, by a jury of his county, of each
and every charge.
It is truly gratifying, too, to see that
all the false rumors which gained cir
culation concerning the military were
so utterly destitute of foundation, and,
that upon his acquittal by the civil
Courts, he was promptly released by
the military. Many of these rumors,
we have no doubt, were put in circula
tion by persons opposed to Reconstruc
tion for political purposes. It is ap
parent, from the above order, that the
military have only been auxilliary to,
and not subversive of, the civil courts.
We beg our citizens to receive with
caution all the wild and foolish rumors,
which are continually being circulated
to the prejudice of Gen. Pope and his
staff. Those who origin and circu
late them, have political objects in
view. Our readers should remember
that Geu. Pope, his Judge Advocate—
Gen. Dunn, and his chief ol civil affairs
—Col. James F. Meliue, are all gen
tlemen of the highest order—we learn
Christian gentlemen—men who, under
no circumstances . ever permit their
intellect or judgement to be impaired
by intoxicating drink.
We are indeed fortunate, while living
under military Government, in having
at the head of that Department, before
which come all matters pertaining to
civil affairs, such an able and efficient
chief as Col. Meline. lie is represent
ed by those who know him best, as a
gentleman of great learning, of enlarg
ed and liberal views, of kind and affable
manners, of a penetrating and discrim
inating mind. While he must and will
perform the duties which devolve upon
him under the Reconstruction laws, we
■' rn assured he has a kind and sym
We learn that the Sheriff, William L.
Goodwin, His Honor judge Milner, and
the prosecuting Attorney, petitioned
Gen. Pope for the release ol Mr. Light,
whereupon it was ascertained that the
Gen., without solicitation, from any
source, had issued tiie above order.
Wc do hope that individuals
and newspapers will cease abusing
the military and reconstruction, unless;
they are better informed upon vvliat
they are talking about,
