Its general tone is regarded As Tina Vorabo to the prisoner. The following is Tho summing up from the observations which i have Quot to infer 1st�?that a conspiracy formed Intima of War to Tako the life of the president and Vico president of the Republic and of Tho executive departments for Tho purpose of aiding Tho enemies of Tho Federal government by throwing it into anarchy and Conns Iod is treason As heinous and As hurtful to the people of this country As Tho co passing the death of the King or Queen of great Britain into Tho subjects of that realm Tjit every person engaged in such conspiracy As Long As lie Conj Ines a member of it is Quot responsibly not Only for the act of treason but for any murder or other crime which May flow from it. 3d. That the government May waive the charge of treason against one or All of the conspirators and proceed against them for the smaller crime of murder included in the greater crime of treason. 4th. That under an indictment for a murder resulting from Tho prosecution of such conspiracy evidence of the entire scope of the conspiracy May be considered in estimating the heinous character of the offence in the indictment. 5th. That it was hot necessary to aver in the indictment the fact that Abraham Lincoln the victim of the murder was at the time of its commission president of the United states or to prove in order to allow the jury to take that fact into the account in determining the heinous character of the crime it being a fact of which courts will take judicial cognizance. Ctr. That he who does an act by another does it by himself and is responsible for its consequences in criminal As Well As in civil cases. 7th. That although an Alibi a when clearly established forms a Complete and unanswerable def Niue the Mere absence fro the immediate scene of a crime resulting1 from a conspiracy unripe a de of and a abandoned by the party charged it will not Avail him if he were it some other place assigned him and his part in that conspiracy. 8th, this plea is unless clearly made out always regarded with suspicion and a circumstance weighing against him who it because it implies an admission of the truth of the facts alleged against him and the correctness of the inference drawn from them. 9th, that flight from the scene of crime the fabrication of false accounts the concealment of instruments of violence Iii circumstances indicating guilt. 10th. Although a confession in the slightest degree tainted with tie Promise of favor by duress or fears is not admitted As evidence against him who makes it yet if made freely and voluntarily is one of the surest proofs of guilt. The Foreman of the jury requested a copy of the recorded evidence. Judge Eisler said it was unusual. The defence was willing but the prosecution objected so the jury retired without the documents.

Washington August 7.�?it is said that the president and Secretary Seward Are not in perfect Accord regarding the movements in the Stanton matter. The following extract Froin Congress omd proceedings pending the passage of the tenure of office Bill is quoted As applying to the Case said a i agree to Tho report of the conference committee with Good Deal of reluctance. The scare had by two deliberate Voles declared its purpose not to make the duration of Cabinet officers fixed by any time but that they should hold their office at the pleasure of the president and that was the original design in the creation of their offices but the general purpose of this Bill is so very important and it is so salutary a Reform that i thought it not to to endangered by a dispute or a collateral question. The House committee conferred and by two votes were very tenacious upon the subject and there seemed to be a probability that the Bill would be lost upon a question that was collateral and unimportant. I take that no Case can Rise where a Cabinet minister would attempt to hold on to Bis office after his chief desired his removal. I can scarcely conceive of such a Case. I think that no gentleman no Man with any sense of Honor would hold a position As Cabinet officer after his chief desired his a removal Aud therefore the slightest intimation on the part of the president would always secure the resignation of a Cabinet officer a for i do not wish to jeopardise this Bill by an unimportant and collateral question. Quot the following is Tho text of the president s and Stanton a correspondence Washington August 5, sir Public considerations of a High character a constrain me to say that your resignation As Secretary of War will be accepted. Very respectfully Andrew Johnson. Non. E. 11stanton. Secretary of War. War department / augusts. Sir your Noto of this Dato has been received stating that Public considerations of a High character constrain you to say that my resignation As Secretary of War will be accepted. In reply. I have Tho Honor to say. Those Public considerations of a High character which alone have induced to to continue at the head of this department constrain me not to resign Tho office of Secretary of War before the next meeting of Congress. Very respectfully Edwin m. Stanton to the in Resi Iii to 10 30, r. took his seat the Bailiff stated no present Prospect of an agreement. Some jurors were disposed on lounges others arguing the matter. Fisher without adjourn ment of Tho court said he would go Home and not receive Tho verdict till morning. It is i seriously apprehended that Tho jury will hang. I Short a charge is characterized in some circles As a stump speech.

The Surratt jury still disagree and stands so it is asserted 10 to 2 for acquittal. Considerable interest is attaching to the commissions recommendation for the commutation of mrs.

The reliability of the memorial diplomatic que much curious Light has been thrown on the condition of the press in this country by the trial going on at this moment Between m. Brag non the sex editor of memorial diploma Tique and the Clif Valier Defranz de Salda Fenna the founder of that political Organ. The Case stands thus on the 19th of april a telegraphic dispatch appeared in the memorial which created a tremendous sensation at that time. It asserted in the most distinct language that Prussia would not evacuate. Luxemburg that orders had been issued to increase her Parks of artillery and that the a Mot do Ordre Quot in official circles was that evacuation would prove equivalent to abdication. The question arose was this really a dispatch or was it a forgery m. Baragno was asked to retract the news and inform the government How he had received it this he refused to do. His counsel after stating the Case so far informs us that news is constantly printed under the form of a dispatch which has intact been gathered. Silie various embassies ministers and other official residences. In France the havas Agency has the monopoly of foreign dispatches. These pass under the notice of the ministers before being distributed to the papers. The result is that dispatches a re constantly suppressed and the Public Only reads what the government pleases. Paragon having been of one time a member of the diplomatic world has Many friends in that Circle Fruim whom he obtains information. News so acquired he published in the form of dispatches in the memorial diploma Tique thus out of eighteen Hundred Soi Disant dispatches pub that paper during the inst forty one were genuine.

General Rumor was thought to be Little More than half a Ere a will probably to nearly to it full one in most of the Grain growing counties. Such Are now the reports from Napa Alameda Santa Clara san Joaquin Yolo and Seno Mai Quot the a Rea planted is a fourth greater than last year and the yield no doubt will to greater. The yield of fruit will be enormous save in the far North where it has buffered from late frosts. The agricultural districts were never seemingly so prosperous As at the present time. New towns and settlements Are springing up All Over the country and the old ones supported by Tho farming interests Are wonderfully improving in wealth and business. Stockton san Jose Santa Clara los Angelos san Bernardino Chico Healdsburg Napa and Santa eos in this state and Salem Albany Corvallis in Oregon All purely agricultural towns never experienced such an Era of Prosperity As during the year just Quot ended. Tho statement of the Marysville an ii Stockton land offices for this season show As much activity in Tho Purchase of government lands is the Best Quot districts in the Western states and what is better most of the Lande sold have gone into Tho hands of actual settlers. The following remarks by a letter writer in the Stockton Independent under Date of june 7, will show something of the recent changes which have taken place in the Valley of the san Joaquin. He says a leaving Stockton i passed via French Camp across the Plain and across the stanislaus River to the recently famous and Well known Paradise District. To no accustomed As recently As three or four year ago to look upon the vast expanse of plainly no Between the stanislaus and Tuolumne bivers then in its native wildness and untouched by the implements of the Husbandman now waving with its Luxuriance of Golden Grain extending Over an area apparently. As boundless As the sea Tho sensation is like that of one in a dream. Crossing the Tuolumne River at Empire City to take the Trail for Hopeton a quiet and hopeful Village sic Miles below Snelling. Every Thimig upon the Plain would indicate a District equally As goofy As the Paradise District if not speaking of the natural Fertility and wants of the upper san Joaquin country in the was of development this writer adds a on Mariposa Creek the Only Field of Grain we saw was toll even and heavy headed All indications of a Good yield. On the Chowchilla and Fresno creeks but Little lies been put in but enough has Boon the. Line of farming to demonstrate the fast of the great Fertility of the soil and the practicability of Grain raising. The Fertility of the District known As four creeks is fast becoming known to All. Thousands of acres now condition of swamp lands Froin Tho Annuel overflows but As easily Reclaimable a the lands upon the Calaveras Only await such reclamation to become the finest gardening soil passing on to Tho South across Tuie Stiver Deer Creek White Kivor Posey Creek and Kern Ili vers in succession to find no diminution in Fertility until to arrive at fori. Tejon the extreme limit of the Valley southward. Easy communication with the rest of the world is what is demanded. The Railroad is what is going to place the whole Valley Quot be tween the san Joaquin and Sierra nevadas in a position far surpassing in importance than any other in the s the coloured vote of the round numbers the aggregate population of the ten outside states May be set Down acc eight millions and the proportion at four million five Hundred thousand Whites against three million five Hundred thousand Blacks which gives the Whites a majority of a million. Allowing one voter to every seven persons a these figures will cover five Hundred thousand Black voters to six Hundred and fifty thousand White voters. The Blacks have decisive majorities in South Carolina Louisiana and Mississippi the Whites in Virginia North Carolina Georgia Aiu Bama Arkansas and Texas while the two races nearly balance Eracli Othier in the larger destruction of the Whites by the War Aud the increase of the Blacks by accessions during the was from the Border slave states. Hence if Ali the voters of both races Are brought out the Blacks Are sure of three states find they May carry four or five of the ten. We Inay safely assume Liat while the Blacks get i Masse will vote the Republican ticket they will be supported by some considerable fractions of the Whites so that if we go no further Tho chances Are in favor of tie Blacks. But rebel disfranchisement will probably in the aggregate Cut off say seventy five thousand men otherwise entitled to vote so that in All the ten states concerned the Whites will have but seventy five thousand majority to rely upon. But in the. Next place the actual registrations made of voters from Virginia to Texas exhibit an almost unbroken Catalogno of Black majorities so heavy in most places As to show that Large numbers of Whites from indifference disgust or despair have Given up the fight on the threshold and that from the Potomac to the Eio Grande the republicans with their solid Black vote and their White supporters hold the game of reconstruction in their hands. So from the facts and figures before us tie actual situation of things warrants Tho conclusion that the Republican party will carry near Lyall if not All these ten outside revolutionized Southern states in their work of y.
