the failure of the INDEXAPPEAL to receive its usual telegraphic report on yesterday of the proceedings in the Garland Judge Perrys instructions to the which are published were submit The defence executed to all the in structions from one to seven Afifi sump Commonwealths Attorney Orgdin should open the argument aud Judge Hintou The Commonwealth Attorney ami Taylor spoke forthe prosecution and Finch had the floor for the defence when the court The case will probably be given to the jury The Jjinputcli of yesterday says Gar land this morning received from John ti native of Baltimore and acquainted with the Addisou but a strauger to Gar a letter declaring that he Was justi lied in shooting James a native of Lunen burg and postmaster at has written the postmaster here for geneal ologiciil information concerning Miss Hatchetts JUDGE KURTS That they believed the evidence that the accused went to the place of meeting with a deliberate premeditated intention to kill the and in pursuance of such intention kill the accused is guilty of mur der in the lirst Every homicide is presumed by law to be murder in the second and order to elevate the offence to murder in the first degree the burden of proof is on the and in order to re duce it to manslaughter tho burden of proof is on ihe That tf they believed from the evidence that the accused wrote on the 5th of a letter couched in the fol lowing language Joseph You said in your note to me that you en dorsed eventhing Miss Hatchett said to me in her letter I will attend to you in due you lyinr which letter was sent to received by deceased on or before the 9th of and that in pursuance of any purpose indicated in said armed himself with a deadly in company with two other on the 13th of one of whom was likewise armed with a deadly to the place of killing with a view to meet the de and failing to meet deceased on that left word for decased that a gentleman would bo to see the next morning and if the jury believed from the evidence that the accused on the next July armed himself and one John Roach each with a deadly and in company Tvitli said Jolin and one William who Avas abo armed with a deadly wea went to the place of and in pursuance or any purpose iadicatcd in said sent for who came to the place of killing to meet him and if the jury further believe from the evidence that upon the meeting of decased with tho accused the accusedkilled deceased with the deadly weapon with which he had previously armed himself without auy lawful then the jury must find accused guilty of murder in the second That if tho jury believe from the evidence that the accused voluntarily went to the vicinity of in pursu ance of notification to that effect previ ously communicated on behalf of the ac cused to armed with a deadly weapon with the purpose of having an affray or difficulty if deceased did not withdraw or apologize for an insult previ ously given accused by and upon meeting deceased killed they find the accused guilty of murder in the second since the accused cant plead selfdefence for killing under such That if the jury believe from the evidence that the prisoner came to the place of combat and invited or induced or had deceased brought out to meet him for encounter with the result of which encounter was the death of deceased from a pistolshot wound inflicted by the such killing is and it matters not which party to the combat ac tually in point of time fired the first That the words of insult or re if actedupon by one not inthe heat of or after sufficient time for cooling has are no excuse or jus for and do not serve to reduce the homicide from murder to The Court further instructs the ry that all malacious killing is and that in the case of homicide malice is evidenced by deliberate selection and use of a deadly by a preconcerted hostile meeting notified or threatened by the or by his acting on a previous quarrel or and no provocation or words or however threat or can reduce the killing to That the law presumes every man innocent until proved That the burden of proof is on the That the prisoner must have the benefit of every reasonable and That a person attacked with a deadly weapon by or threatened with deadly attack through no wrongful act of his may defendhimself to the extent of talcing life if aud such killing is justifiable A man may repel force by force in delcncc of his person and proper but the force or violence used must not be but only sufficient to repel the attack and free the party attacked from imminent That if the jury shall have any raiional doubt as to any important fact necessary to convict the accused of any offence they are bound to give licensed tho benefit of that If upon the whole evidence in the case there be any raiional hypothesis consistent with tho conclusion that the homicide was excusable or the accused cannot be PERSONAL AND Charles Worth and North and Albert were registered at the Now York Paris oilico on the

What our Customers Say:

"It is amazing how easy and exciting it is to access all of this information! I found hundreds of articles about my relatives from Germany! Well worth the subscription!" - Michael S.
