[COKTIVCSD rROM 8IXTB PAOB.] Wabhinqtom. December 12.—Tiie first Witness in the Guiteau case to-day was Dr. Edward Charles Spltzga, of New York. The witness bad made a study of nervous •nd mental diseases as a specialty, and had been called to testify as an expert about twenty-five time?.
Witness examined the prisoner in jail yesterday and was satisfied that he is inlane.
Witness considered the main features of the prisoner’s case to be a tendency to the formation of delusive opinions and morbid projects, and a strong indication of imbecility of judgment; and while," said the witness, "riiave no other evidence than the expression of his face, I should have no doubi that be is a moral imbecile or moral monstrosity.”
Scjville then read witness a hypothetical question, and asked if in nis (witness') opinion the prisoner was sane or insane on the 2d of July.
Witness declined to answer any hypothetical question in oases where he had made a personal examination.
Witness considered the prisoner insane when he examined him. He believed he panst have been in more or less of a morbid mental state throDgliout his life, andti.at be was probably insane on the 2d of July.
The cross-examination was quite polnt-Idly directed to the witness’ practice and Itanding as.an expert, and inquiries were made as to witness’ position as professor at the Veterinary School.
Scoville objected to the questions as not |>ertinent.
Davidge replied; "The attainments of this witness have been paraded by counsel in the other side, and we think it decidedly pertinent to this case to discover what opportunities for professional acquirements the witness has enjoyed."
Bcoville noted the exception.
Witness liad no reason to feel ashamed of bis sphere of duty in that connection.
Davldge—‘‘Yes, but your treatment at that time must have been confined mostly to horses, and those gentlemen are what are known as horse doctors, are they not?
Witness (leddening and with sume excitement): ‘‘My treatment has been confined to asses. When an ass with two legs asks me a stupid question, 1 endeavor t<> treat him as he deserves-*’ [General laughter.]
Witness would not undertake to express a decided opinion as to ttie mental condition Of the prisoner July 2d.
Guiteau—‘‘There was no depravity about this business at all, and 1 think it is a burning sliame for gentlemen of the prosecution to harp upon that word, 'Depravity.* I have been a cousisient Christian all my life, and because 1 committed adultery to get rid of a woman I did not love and owe a few hundred dollars it is a burning shame for this prosecution to blacken my character.’*
Despite tlie cries of ‘‘Silence’’ and "Or der" Guiteau continned to strike upon the table and shriek out at the top of his voice; I am not afraid to go to the gallows if the Lord Almighty wishes me to go there, expect an act of God that will blow tiiis Court and jury out of this window to pro-ect me if necessary. I want to thunder Jiis in the ears of the American people."
Davidge (with an air of disgust)—"Oh, t;ds pantomime business is getting played sut,"
Guiteau—"You are getting played out, »nd your theory of the prosecution, too." Recess.
THX PRISOnXR FAILIHC.
Washington, December 12.—The impression is becoming stronger here that the Bvidence of tlie last week has convinced many who formerly thought Guiteau a crank on the subject of notoriety, that the moral depravity theory of tne prosecution is more in accord with his general coudnet. There was the usual crowd of visitors at tlie jail yesterday, but only a few persons were allowed a eliinpse of the prisoner. Counsel on both sides are desirous of keeping news-
(’paper men from interviewing him. It was with great difficulty that your representative obtained permission even to see him, And a solemn pledge had been given to Warden Crocker that no questions should , be asked or anything done which savors! ;n the least degree of an interview. The ■j^usaasin was not found in his cell. He had ,^en allowed to traverse the corridors, un-fler sufficient guard, fur recreation.
I The Warden stated that he is laboring ^nder severe mental excitement, and that ;ie is liable to break down physically before i >he trial ends.
General Crocker says his deportment is vrderly and gentleniaiily, but that the ,ixciting incidents of the last week hnvt tnnerved him. When the writer saw him Áe wai lesling uneasily on a couch in a arge cell at the end of the corridor on Vbicb liis own cell is situated. He moved ' tneasily as the visitors entered. Not a rord was said, but the restless eyes of the ; «risoiier followed lliein in every movement, |ind be seemed hungering for information IVoni tlie outside world. A Bible rested on ■ he sill of tlie grated window, and papers c If a legal form were scattered around.
, i Guitetiu closed Ins eyes wearily and hanged bis position several times. The iail pliysician, who saw him this morning, ‘aid bis digestive organs were out of order, ^ut he could find no other symptons of hysicul derangeuient. To the noii-prufes-')onaI mind the prisoner’s apiiearaiice was idicative of a severe mental strain and an ncontrollabie (ear of an unfavorable result f the trial.
The announcement that Scoville will lec-ure Wednesday evening has created a flut-er of excitement. A nuruber of people ironoiince this step not only unknown in he history of criminal trials, butunprofea-iooal In the highest degree.
SC0V1L.LB la NOT SATISFISD.
The continued indisposition of Ralph Vorniley, the colon d juror in the Guiteau ase, threatens to seriiiusly complicate the regress of the trial. His physicians frar hat Woriuley will be unable to be in at-endaiice much lunger. He is threatened itb erysipelas in tlie face. Scoville SS'S te will not consent to prcceeding without full panel. In an interview to-day coville further said that such a feeing of ill-will toward the prisoner was rowing up tbrougiiout the country hat hs didn’t know but it would e best if something should happen 0 put a stop to the present proceedings util public sentiment was more quiet, lence, Jf a juror is unable to attend to his Qty the case may yet have to be stopped, ud may have to be begun de novo in the larch term. Scoville says the recent tone f the.press has been little less than offer-ig a premium for the assassliiaiion of uiteau; At least he thinks there has been
enough said about hanging Guiteau to the gallows to cause deep regret in the future, because he is sure that if the end ever did come a post mortem «xaroination would show him to be insane. Souville thinks the trial will last at least a month longer, and that the counsel for the Government who expect a speedy end will be greatly disappointed.
THI G0ITIAU BOAFrotO.
Y'esterday Warden Crocker called the attention of your correspondent to the scaffold on which Guiteau will be executed, if the jury so decide. Upon this instrument of death three criminals have already expiated their orinies, among the number Stone Ambrose, whoee head was lorn clear from his body. The structnre is firm and well braced, and commands a full view of the corridor which croases the rotunda to Oui teaii’e pIhcs of confinement, and in pass-iiig to and from the jail be is given a full benefit of its appearanoe.
THE VIENNA CALAMITY.
ViKRNA, December 12.—The State funeral procession of the victims of the Ring Tbea ter fire tliat was tu have taken place ytster-day was abandoned in consequence of fears tliat the exasperation of tbe public would lead to an unseemly demonstration, and, under orders from the Town Council, the bodies were privately conveyed Saturday night and last night to the cemetery, where public obsAquies will be held to-day in great state. Tbe list of Uie missing is now reduced to 917, and the number of bodies recovered to 470, of wbich only 125 have been identified.
Public indignation ia increasing It is found upon investigation that the man who liad charge of tbe fire hose was occupied as ascene-shiftsr; that the gaa man also acted as general lamp-lighter, and the person who had charge of tbe iron curtain was absent from bis post, while tbe door keys of the various outlets were in tbe pockets of the various cloak-room attendants.
It is stated that the firemen, in breaking open one of tbe locked doors, found twenty-fire bodies of victims who, having groped their way right, found the door too strong to be forced. It is alleged that tbe mujori ty of tbe victims could have been rescued but for the assMfption of the police and firemen that the people in tlie galleries had escaped. The evidence of th se rescued shows that during tbe hideous strugcje of over half an hour inside tbe burning build ing the firemen did nothing, and that even when the victima were appealing at the windows to the police and firemen, telling them of tbe struggle that was going on lit side, their appeals were received as iiicred uloui, and Uiey were told to wait and that all would be saved.
Vienna, December 12.—The common grave for the unrecognized victims of the tlieater fire in the Central Cemetery is 150 feet long and 14 wide.

DKUONSTRATION8 OF THR CROWa
Washington, December 8 —When Gui-teau leaves tbe Court House in the van each day there is more or less hissing and yelling by the crowd, and frequently on the trip down crowds of colored people and echool boys jeer at the prisoner. In aome inatauoes iu tbe residences on the streets through wlilch tbe van passei women are seen shaking their fists at the prisoner. Guiteau does not of course see tliese demon-■trationa. Since he was shot by Jones he does not stand in the van, nor does he go to the front part of it, his favorite position being a seat near the door. Tbe cries do no liave much effect in the afternoon, but when the school boys and others boot at him on the upward trip be is scmewhai alarmed. Tbis morning quite a crowd roe the van in the neighborhood of Eighth East, with cries of "shoot him,” "hang him." The prisoner made a jump from the rear to tbe front, and bad liardly reouvered from his fright when be arrived at the Court House.

Ben J. Min criticises thus: "In 1683 there are three fatal flaws: 1. Tbe foundation word is obsolete. 2 There ar* two distinct falsliicatlouK A—'A LAST in every bouse bM plaoe.' While there are many houses tliat have no children at alL B—'The final aocn becomes a man.' 1 always thought that a babe gr«or up to be a man or woman, aud waa not aware that they made men. 8.

How "Welcome” can be substituted for "Mar-gin'* iu 1687 is beyond our oomprehension.
Damon sends us a clip from an old oouniing house edition of Webster on whicb Is the word “UNNATiVA" defiuid. "Not native: notuattiral; forced.” This et oourse shields him from any impropriety in the oonitruolion of 1686, but we are “su sorry” he does not own tbe lut edition, which Is the only authority.
Mack says: *T think Beu J. Min just a 'leetle off* lu 1700, sub. 0; lieguvaan obaoletedeflnttion, wUila tbera are several Uto onen”
The poiut ia well Uken.
Aspiro writes: "Na 1716, sub. 8, vlolstes my approved crttielim as to abbreviations In the plural. Dr. is the abbreviation for Doctor aud its plural. I was aware my 'triolet’ was not such according to Webster. I used it lu deforeno* to a puuieeditor who gave an example."
It is safer to use Webaiet and his revisen as auihorliy than all tbe puzale editors in txUN enoe.

Having ail oyster supper and flficiable at his house, Mr. Frank Farnham, living six miles from here, was afraid that horee-thievea will consider it is a good opportunity for business, and occasionally watched his stable. Miss Laura McDonald and Miss Buckles thought it would be fun to steal from the house and take a horseback ride. They carried out their little scbeme,aud, returning,tried to put up tb* horse without being discovered. But the horse had been missed, and Mr. Farnham, taking the girls to be borse-tbieves, shot at them with a ihirty-two caliber revolver, inflicting a severe and jainful wound.on Miss ^IcDunald, the mil passing through her left leg tmlow the knee. Tbe mistake was soon discovered and tbe jollity of the evening was 800U turned to sorrow and pain. Physicians were sent for and the patient made as comfortable as possible.

ISau Diego Union.1 We have had occasion within the pkA few weeks to write a number of noticea ol our splendid vegetable and fruit growüm. Heading our list of wonderful prodiidi was tbe enormous pie-plaut ou Hugging place, the largest leaf of wbich measura4 twenty-one feet nine inches iu circumference. Then followed a variety of peaches, apples, pears, figs, and grape% produced in different parts of the country, ali of which were remarkable for size and flavor. We now bave before specimens of apples aud pears gron upon the ranch uf E. Steele, of Paradmi Valley, upon whicli we can brag *evem more heartily than ever. The applet which were remarkable both for size aoi flavor, are perhaps not superior to suhm uf the splendid varieties presented us bf others, but they are very fine. The pean^ however, are ahead of any we have see» tills season. First, we have the Flemiik Beauty, a pear weighing twenty-ooB ounces. Then a cluster of four of thi same variety (three on one stem aud tbe other dropping off ia pulling) weighing four pounds. The next is a Bartlet^ weighing a fraction over a pouud.
