" The prisoner. Was indicted jointly with
his father for tlw murder of his brother's
wife, but thii Court granted them separate
trials. The trial occupied two days.
The Jury after a retirement of about two
"Shour? returned with a verdict of Guilty
of Murder in the first degree.
The testimony in the case was mainly
circumstantial, but of n nature to force
conviction of the guilt of the prisoner on
every mind. The Counsel for the pris
oner did every thing that men could do,
for him and if talent and skill could
have changed the result, it would have
been changed; no legal point was left un
tried. The arguments to the jury by the
counsel on both sides weieably and forci
bly made, and they reflect great credit
upon tho gentlemen engaged. Such nn
nrrny of talent, skill, and legal knowl
edge cannot probably bo found in the
State. Judge Humphrey did himself great
honor in tho charge to tho Jury and in de
livering the sentence of the Court. After
the Verdict of the Jury had been pronoun
ced, the prisoner arose and addressed the
audience, strongly declaring his inno
cence of the crime. When ho first rose
it was with some difficulty thiit ho could
XJdpcak, but before he closed, his voice be-
cum" stronger nnd he nioceeded with
firmness; he spokenliout five minutes, and
his . remark-; seemed to have great effect
upon .the immenso concourse of people
present and upon the Court. After the
prisoner set down, Mr. Tod made a mo
tion for a new trial which was over
ruled. After tho motion for a new trial
was overruled tho prisoner again arose
and in n clearer and stronger voice de
clared himself innocent, charging another
. with the crime and Recusing witnesses of
fj!sehrod& of misrepresenting facts. . By
his Voice and gestures ho indicated, not
remorse and grief, but nnger, and rather
4 in a tone of defiance expressed himself

f - It vvus wi'h some difficulty that Judge
Himplirey delivered the sentence of tho
Court. Although his voice wns firm and
distinct, yet by tlm tear of compassion"
which glhtencd in his eye, it wns plain
that the struggle wns great within.
Ho wns pr-ntenced to be hung on the
