Work for vigilance Committees.
--The Abingdon Virginian, of Friday last, has the following:
We understand that the man Faris
, whom the citizens of Marion
, in the adjoining county of Smythe, tarred and feathered a month or two ago, for his Abolition sentiments, raised a Lincoln flag at his residence a few miles from Marion
on Tuesday last.
It was determined, we learn, to take down the flag on Wednesday, and hang Faris
to the pole, if he could be caught.
It will be remembered that a committee was appointed some weeks ago by the people of Marion
, to convey him to Ohio
They performed the duty, and on parting with him gave him fifty cents each, but on returning home found that he had arrived back a day ahead of them.
A brother of said Faris
is a Magistrate of Smythe county
On Tuesday last, all the Magistrates being summoned as is customary at the April Court, they refused to sit with Faris
, and he was compelled to leave the Bench.
He entertains like sentiments with his brother.
