AN "INDIRECT" SEIZURE. The Canadian correspondent of the Times writes from Ottowa on June 14tn :—"A daring outrage has been committed in the kidnapping and forcible abduction by United States' detectives from the city of London, in Ontario, of one Rufus Braddon. He is represented to have been a medical practitioner, for some time resident in York county, in the State of South Caro- lina, and to have been in good practice there and of considerable means. He is one of many who from political exigencies have left the South and sought a refuga in Canada. It now appears that, having been traced by detective officers of the United States to London, he was watched until an opportunity arose of seizing him. This presented itself on the after- noon of the 4th instant, when, while walking in the suburbs, and in sight of others, he was knocked down, plied with chloroform, placed in a cab and taken to the Great Western Railway Station. He was there placed in a com- partment of a Pullman car, being handcuffed, and still under the influence of chloroform. Being thus carried to Windsor, he was transported across the boundary of the river Detroit, and by the Lake Shore and Michigan Southern Railway to Buffalo. In mention of this disgrace- ful outrage the local American press rather congratulate themselves upon the skill with which the kidnapping Vas conducted, and under the heading of Hunted Down— Capture of a Notorious South Carolina Ku Klux Outlaw," allege that he is one of that organisation, and that there are now eleven indictments for murder alone pending against Lim in the State of South Carolina. Inquiries were made in Parliament on Wednesday last as to the steps taken, when the Premier announced that the Governor-General had requested the British Minister at Washington to make application to the United States Government for the surrender of Braddon, and that the matter would also be brought under the notico of her Majesty's Secretary of State for the Colonies.
