He was rescued by the police who were followed to the station House by 1000 negroes to had a pistol which the negroes charge he attempted to use in the meeting. A considerable number of the delegates to the con. Montion appointed by late county meetings arrived this evening. A Niggio july 31.�? Pierpont opened his argument As follows question of this Case is whether the prisoner was engaged in aiding and abetting a conspiracy which resulted in the killing of Abraham Lincoln. If he was so engaged he is guilty under this indictment. If to was not engaged in the conspiracy which led to the killing then he is not guilty of conspiracy being established it is the Well settled Law first that each Confederate in conspiracy is liable forthe every conspirator and the declarations of each May be Given in evidence against every other and though conspiracy May have been formed years before the prisoner Ever heard of it yet having subsequently joined in conspiracy he is in All respects guilty As an original conspirator. A second that when several persons Are fire in y confederated in a conspiracy the Yare like one body and the act. Of each hand and the utterance of each Tongue and Tho Conception and purpose of each head touching the common plan is the act of each and All and every one of the several persons forming the Confederate body is responsible for the acts sayings Aud doings of each and All of the oth ers. To Laird that the conspiracy to Kidnap abduct or murder the president of the United states in time of rebellion or other great National peril is a crime of such heinous magnitude As to admit of no accessories but such As to Render All the conspirators their sup porters aiders and bettors and principals in the crime that such is the common Law of England and is the Law of this country. Fourth Tondt such conspiracy to abduct or kill the president Aud thus to overthrow the government and promote anarchy in the nation is n crime of such a nature As to Render every supporter of the conspiracy a principal in Quot the crime and liable for nil the con so Quencas of Inu Dor perpetrated by a conspirator while carrying out the common design though no such murder May have been originally intended and though the accused conspirator never personally parti Pute 1 therein. A fifth that a killing by a conspirator in pursuance of a common plan to abduct makes each conspirator guilty of the killing though no such crime was contemplated by the other that the personal presence of the Pris Mer in Washington was not necessary to his guilt in this Case. He could perform his part a Tho conspiracy As Well at Elinora As at Washington Aud be equally guilty atone place As at Tho other. That if to left Montreal in obedience to the order of his conspirator Booth to Aid in wilful conspiracy it matters not whether to arrived in time to Bear his allotted part or not being on his Way to take his part any Accident which May have delayed him does not Chango his guilt. Seventh tha1 in Legal contemplation each conspirator is present where the crime is committed towards which Tho confederates had conspired or which was committed As a consequence of Tho confederated plan though in fact the Coa Spiro tor on trial May have been absent when the acting conspirators did the deed. Eighth that a conspirator performing his part in n conspiracy to abduct or kill the president in the capital though not personally present May be lawfully convicted and punished for the crime whenever brought within Tho jurisdiction of this District. Ninth As a conspiracy is proved by facts and circumstances a which convince the mind precisely As any other crime or agreement is proved in a court of Justice.

Merrick resumed and concluded his argument for the defence. The following were his closing remarks Thero has been blood enough shed in this country and it was now time the had ceased. No Man had a greater horror of the crime that resulted in the murder of Abraham Lincoln than himself that four had already been Hung and others were suffering. Three years ago there was in this City a Happy household sitting beside a Bright fireside. There sat a Mother and a sister just budding into womanhood beside them a Young Man just. Reaching manhood. He would Hove the jury remember the changes that have come Over that Bright fireside. The Mother sleeps in a nameless felons grave Trio daughter burdened and broken hearted drags out a wretched life and the son in Here before before you on trial for his life. May the almighty god to guide your judgment and enlighten j our conviction that the remembrance of this Day and your verdict May hereafter add forever a Sweet and pleasant recollection Broadberry will probably make a Short address to the jury to Morrow.

If you done to want me to get a Gypsy singular trait of the gypsies is reported by Tho Dayton journal. It seems that some years ago a Man named Stanley the King of Tho tribe in this country was buried in great state in Tho Woodland cemetery. Since then no matter where a member of the tribe in this country has died the remains have been conveyed to the same place for interment. Last fall and Winter four children of Tho Tribo died in Texas and the remains Wero sent to the vault in Woodland until a sufficient delegation from the Tribo could he gathered to celebrate Tho ceremonies properly.

M., to a May n band of about Twenty mounted indians was discovered dashing from a Ravine towards some government Stock grazing on Tho East Side of Tho Post. I few minutes later another band of mounted indians was seen on Tho South Side of Tho Post making for the stage Stock of which there were about Twenty head. Fortunately the vigilant commander of the Post had skill fully arranged his forces Ond the indians were completely foiled. No Stock was lost and no Man was Hurt. Tho indians were fired upon and at least three were wounded. They were cheyennes of the dog tribe. Another band supposed to be much larger was detected in the distance partly concealed. It is supposed Tho first party was a Decoy to draw out the Garrison. Tho troops were excited and some were for Hunting after the a indians but were restrained by the prudence of Captain Helm As his men Wero not mounted and the remembrance of Trio fatal disaster at fort Phil. Kearney was too recent. The plot was most skilfully Laid by tha indians but failed in every particular. It fort Zara is of Walnut Creek half a Milf from the Arkansas River and eight Miles West from big Bend in an exposed position. It is commanded by Captain Isaac a., Helm 3d--United states infantry. Tho Garrison enlists of Only Twenty six soldiers and Twenty government addition to danger from indians another foe More in sinuous has appeared Viz Tho cholera. We Lear from or. Perry the medical officer in charge of the Post that Ciuco the-10th instant there have been fourteen casesj>��hsii>nf7tlwstly Cosine cod with passing trains. / a Only one Hinn Haj died. The health of Tho 3 Garrison Ami i Apt yees is Good. Honors conferred on a fran Eli surgeon. The medical profession As a body is not spoiled by Large fees or a flattering appreciation of the services of its members. Surgeons come under a larger share of pay and honors than physicians. A Man will pay for amputation of one of his limbs a sum to would begrudge to a physician for saving his life. Among Tho fortunate men of the Chirurg. Gicii1 class is the eminent French surgeon m., Neaton who a few years ago rendered great service to Garibaldi in Tho Case of Tho wounded foot of the italien hero. For some time past his professional Aid has been enlisted for the Young Prince Imperial and with results Gratifying alike to patient and doctor in the convalescence of the former Aud the distinction conferred in consequence on the latter. Or. Neaton was paying a visit about three. Weeks ago to Tho Punco at st. Cloud when his a Young patient said to him a wait a Little. Doctor i have something to give to then presented the Cross and ribbon of Tho grand order of Tho legion of Honor saying a it is not quite new As my father has worn at for some Neaton immediately drove to the Tuil eries to thank the Emma Cir who confirmed the Welcome fact and bedded a i shall never forget doctor the care which my son has received from it would Nowc be easy to Confer a favor with greater delicacy and Grace. As much cannot to said of Trio Rich West Indian who had been operated of with Success by sir Astley Cooper. The latter ended his last visit by rising and with a Low Bow saying that there would be no further occasion for his services. Izump tits grunted Trio patient who was still in his bed Quot i suppose i must thank you. Tako that a throwing his the retiring in Recac sir Astley anticipating perhaps Tho jokes caught the Cap in his hand and put it in is pocket. On reaching his Carriage lie founds Cheek for a thousand pounds in the Cap. Tiow the flow Weed saw the first steadier on the 1807, sixty Yearie ago and when or. Weed was Only ten years old,0 the news was Recei ved that the first Steamboat to Albany Ever on Tho River was to pass use place. To and his companion stripping themselves and putting their clothes into their hats and their hats on a Board i swam out to the Island pushing the Board before them and donning their clothes again when they arrived on dry land after waiting a while the Steamboat appeared in sight and As it approached fear began to take the place of wonder in the minds of the boys. It came up. With an awful noise and surge its huge paddle wheels exposed and its funnels vomiting fire and smoke so that to the unaccustomed eyes of Young Thurlow and his Comrado it seemed More like a monster from the infernal regions than anything else they could imagine. The were greatly frightened but it passed harm Quot Lessly and they had it to say in after years that they saw the first Steamboat that Ever went up Tho Hudson. A new life Lifeboat of improved construction is shown at the Paris exhibition. It is about thirty feet Long weighs a Little loss than three tons and can accommodate a it its full Crew of thirteen nearly forty persons. It is impossible to sink it and it is self righting. This is effected in several ways Bat mainly by constructing at each end two Largo air tight hollow compartments supplying buoyancy of themselves to float the vessel with its company and rendering it impossible for her to remain for More than a moment or two on her beam ends. It would take Art enormous Force to hold her Down in that position. In addition Thero Are the usual cellular spaces running along each aide so that submersion is out of Tho question with any human Load that could to crammed on Board. Beam the deck which is above the water line or close to it Are Iron tanks some of which filled with water afford ballast while others Are hammered Down and empty which increases the buoyancy., Vethe Scotia a mail brings advices of Tho amalgamation of the old and wealthy firm of messes.
