The Grief in Europe.
Ojr di'patchei thia morning bring oi
(till further deUili in tgar4 to - tbe iiai-
waraal grief And farrow which the newi of
the murder of the Good President hit
CAuted in Europe. The effect of the in
telligeoce k greater than any one could
nave anticipated. The mourning a uni
versal and bear away upon it tide all
other feeling.. Detraction, carping criti
cism, bitter hostility, neering ridicule are
all driven away by the torrent of mourn
ing. Europe, like America, finds that she
did not realize the worth and grandeur of
President Lir.con's character until his
career ws closed by the bullet of the
assassin. All parties unite in pajing
hearty tribute to his magnanimity, his
clemency, his generoeity, his justice, his
goodness ana his greatness. The fact that,
ia spite of sneers and detractions, the
English relied mainly upon the forbearing
policy of the President and his Premier,
for the preservation of friendly relations
between tbe two countries, is shown in the
sudden and sharp decline ot securities of
all kinds on receipt of the news of their
HerroT and indignation at the crime are
as universal as sorrow. And here the
United States will gain in the estimation
of Europe. The people of the whole world
-will recoil from the thought of assisting;,
harboring or protecting the instigators of
this terrible murder. There is in England,
to be sure, a very natural feeling of disbe.
lief that the rebel leaders could be connec
ted with tbe murder. Englishmen still in
sist on regarding Davis, Lee, Meson, Sli
dell and the rest as gentlemen if not patri
ots. This disbelief will, however, evapor
ate before the evidence which our govern
possesses of the guilt of these villains. View
ed as murd Biers, they wiil lose the romance
whicn invested their characters and will be
perceived in their true character of unmit
igated foouudrelistn. . Even is Europe,
therefore, we doubt if Jeff. Davis and his
co-conspirators would be safe against extradition.
A Cool Proposition.
The London Timet very coolly under
takes to regulate the internal affairs of the
United States by advising that President
Johnson should resign. "We would rncip.
rocate the interest which the "Thun
derer" seems to take in our government by
suggesting that the interests of that paper
would be greatly promoted by the resigna
tion of the fool who proffered such advice.
Meanwhile the American Republic and its
respected President will pay just as much
attention to tbe Times as the moon did to
the barking dog. ' '
The announcement that Gov. Aiken, of
North Carolina, has been released from
arrest will cause a general feeling of satis
faction. That gentleman has been regard
ed as one of the few "faithful among the
faithless found" in South Carolina. The
people of the North were glad to believe
that there could be found in South Carolina
man of such ability and influence who
had proven true to the country, and around
whom the future Union party of that
State might rally. Thny were pained to
learn that his loyalty was suspected, and
will be rejoiced that the suspicion is now
General Ealleck has issued a very proper
order to tbe effect that all persons found
in arms against the United States in Vir
ginia and North Carolina, after the 20th
tnst, will be treated as robbers and out
laws. The most prompt and severe mea
sures should be taken to exterminate guer
rillas wherever the Federal authority ex
ists, and to restore to the South the peace
and order to which it has so long been a
The theory advanced to explain the ap
pearance of the rebel ram Stonewall off the
coast of Florida viz : that she had been
ordored thither by Jeff. Davis to provide
for his escape would seem absurd on its
very face. The fugitive traitor ean have
had no communication whatever with that
vessel since the great battles before Rich
mond which, so suddenly destroyed big
"confederacy'' and made him a Cain-like
One of the most significant indications
hat Peaee has really come is found ia the
fact that the telegraph is in working order
between Washington and Macon, and
that the President's pioclamation offering
one hundred thousand dollara reward for
Jeff. Davis, has been sent through to the
latter place. Fast as Jeff, flies, lightning

ber of Congress from Southern Maryland,
was resumed today at 11 o clock, before

the purpose, of which Mjor General Fos
ter is President, and Major Winthrop
Judge Advocate. The court having been
called to order by the President, the ac
cused read the following paper, which he
asked the court to file:
Mr. Prerulmt of the Commission :
Tbe undersigned respectfully states to
the Commission here that he has been ad
vised by counsel, since the commencement
of this trial, and since he plead to the
charge and specifications, that he ought to
have made a formal exception to the ju
risdiction ot this tribunal to take cog
nizance of the charge which is here made
sgainBt him, and which said charge he
has been required to answer here; and he
respectfully further suggests, that whilst he
could hardly hope by any views he might
be able to present in support of this excep
tion to induce this honorable oourt to sus
tain the same in the teeth ot various d
cisions in support of tbe Jurisdiction of
similar tribunals in like cases, and to which
decisions, in support of similar tribunals
would accord the highest and controlling
respect, yet he Is advised that suggestions
ef want of jurisdiction made at any time
in any manner, however informal, will for
all ulterior purposes be equally aa available
as if tbe same had been made by a formal
plea, or in sjine other appropriate raoda
The under igned therefore respectfully
asks the benefit of the exception, which he
desires to be made a parcel of the record
taken to the jurisdiction of this tribunal.
The undersigned respectfully further states
that he has been advised, and that he
respectfully suggests that two specifications
to the charge against him are not true, nor
does either of them show an offense em
braced in either clause of the 56th Article
N o such facts are alleged as would or
could, if proven, to such offense or any
crime made punishable under said article;
and he hopes that he may have all tbe
bent fit of all exceptions to said specifica
tions, as if he had in effect demurred to
some and to each of them respectively.
The undersigned does not ask permission,
at this stage of the trial, to be heard in
support of these exceptions, but respect
fully asks that this paper maybe received,
and made a part of the proceedings of the
case, tj avtil heroafler in such manner as
jui-tice and liht may require.
The Julge Advocate said he had no
objections to the receipt of the paper and
it was accordingly filed. Mr. Crane,
Counsel for the defendant demurred
against the specifications, rerr ark in g that

Mr. Harris stated that his witnesses had
not arrived, but it Was important that
thay should be here, lney would
probably arrive to-day, but as they
bad somewhere near sixty miles
to trave. he would ask the court to grant
