modest,courteous, and communicative-a Judge and

The Judges in this Court-are required to give the
result of their deliberations un.the cases brought be
fore them before the tiling of the Court,though they
have their own time-to prepare their written opin
ions. 1 thus had an opportunity of hearing them
give their views on several- important points of la.
Of the casca before the Court, that of KEENER,
who was oonvieted. at the last Term of the Superior
Court- of Richmond county, for the murder of
Russs, was the most interesting. It was up be
fore the Supreme Co'urt. on motion for a new trial.
For the State, the case was argued by young Mr.
WaixEn, formerly of Hambuig, and by the Attor
hey General, Snawiaxa, a young -man. about twen
ty seven or eight years of age, of considerable elev
"erness. Mr. Tuos. W. Mu.Lza and the Hon. A.
II. STEPuEvis appeared 'for the prisoner. . Having
hever heard Mr. S-rruaNs, I was on the tip-toe of
expectation. He was the last to speak in the case.
A short time before he arose, I had the pleaiure of
an introduction to lim. He complained ofa hoarse
'ness,.brought on by. a 'long political speech made
the day before at Warrenton ; but his soul seemed
to be absorbed in'the subject he was about to die
eusE. With his every limb and joint trembling and
- tottering, he risesslowly from his4eat. You think
he can scarcely stand:. To the eye of the stranger
there is nothing of the man, or the orator about
him. You behold a thin, sallow visage-a small,
feeble framework-delicate, slender, I had almost
said ptIny. Bat there is one redeeming feature
that eye-that dark hazel orb-brilliant. yet soft, and
unw lighted up in all the splendor of acharming in
4leligence. He begins: but his voice seems as fee
ble as his body,.fine and shrill-tremulous and clear
-and almost as delicate as that of a girl. Can any
thing remarkable, you asi yourself, come from that
form and that voice ? In mild,soft, persuasive tones
he addresses their Honors: and now the words be
gin-toflow-the tones begin to deepen-the voice
grows louter-that feeble, totteriig frame straight
ens up and expands-that eye, beaming with true
Prometheanfire, now sparkles and flashes-and a
'stream of soft, winning; eloquence has already filled
your soul and bound you in a spell of astonishment
and delight. Silence and attention reign supreme
Judges, l.awyers, every body seems entranced.
. You might have heard a pin. drop on.the floor. Yet
- iou experience no powerful, overwhelming sensa
tion. You see and feel the lightning, but you hear
no thunder. You are surprised ! You collect your
...self and ponder ; but your respite is short. Pres
ently you see-those same thin lips,.at first so placid,
mqw quivering and curling-those wan, sallow
4hedks gathering -into ,a range contortions-that
brow overcast with a dark, meaning frown-those
bright-eyes, fixed and firm, darting glances 9f defi
ance and a fiery determination-that bony hand fast
clenched-those feeble limbs all over trembling and
tottering. The burning words, the dashing thought,
the big metaphor-in short, a torrent of fierce and
.vehemnent invective comes tilting forth to scathe the
-ubfortunate victim of his wrath, and to lead captive
~the judgment of his hearers. .But this cloud of
wrath oncedispelled,a delightful sunshine of thought
Intervenes, to gladden the inmost soul. Ina trice,
all those frowns, dark shades of passion are gone
.and now asoft, winning smile begins .to play upon
.the lips-a placid, gentle calm overspreads, the
.hee-the eye softens in'lo. a lustre almost angelic
the voice melts into the -sweetest tones of warm en
treati. ' You are delighted : .you feel you know not
how. .You are half inolined'to smile, and yet you

For an hour the orator plied the weapons of arga
ment and entreatyon behalf of- his unfortunate cli
ent: -enforcing his vices withr ~an eleration of senti
ment, 'with a boldness and originality of thought,
with.a.glowing imagery -and persuasive eloquence
that teld quietly, but efreetiveiy, open the minds of
the Judge's aid hi'sefnditors generally. As he took
his seat, involuntarily grasping his hand, I said to
him, -"if I were Judge, you oertsinly should have
a new trial;" and he did get'it. The next moirning
inuau eloquent delivery of his opidion, Judge Luoxr
asx,. behalf of .the Ceiurt,.awarded a new trial to
the prisoner.- .
- What,~I asked myself, is the secret of Mr. S

thmnian power. is mamnner is' neither'polished nor
graceful: his rhetoric notfinished or elegant. He~
has no yvoice of thunder-nostartling attitudes. Yet
Ire obtains a decided'mastery over the minds of his

-thought, his hold expression, his warm enthusiasm,
his-sharp in'reetitva;but these, undecoompanied by
.any power of .physical action, seem searcely suffi

NEW Yux, June 13.-The U. S. Mail Steam
ship Atlantic, Capt. James West, has arrived,
at her warf in this City from Liverpool, which
port she left on the 2nd instant.
GENERAL INTELIGENCE.-The advices by. this
arrival are of a startling and impoitant character,
and prove that the supineness of the Allies has
given place at last to vigorous and decided a..
On the .nights of the 22d and 23d ult.- the
Allies drove the Russians from an important
position before Sebastopol, called placed' Armce.
The killed and wounded on both sides amount
ed to 8,000. The French retained the position.
The Allies seized an'd retained the Russian lind
of defences.on the Tehernaya with scarcely a
battle. The Russians retreated to the Hills.
The secret expedition, composed of 20,000
men and 14 steamers, took the fortress of Kertch.
The Russians blew up their own magazines both
sides of the Straits connecting the Black Sea
and the Sea of Azov, and sunk four steamers
and 30 transports, and destroyed half a million
sacks of breiidstuffs. The Allies have now 14
steamers in the Sea of Azov. The Allies have
also destroyed the Reusian magazine- in the in
land town of Arat, and destroyed the shot and
shell foundry near Kertch. The garrisons near
Sebastopol drew most of their supplies from
the Sea of Azov. Probably, therefore, the'fall
of Kertch and the occupation of the Sea of
Azov ivill have a speedy influence upon the
It is rumored at Paris that Pellisier had at
tacked and routed Liprandi, that Canrobert was
wounded, and another trench General killed.
The Allies have completed the fourth parallel,
and the British were mounting heavy guns upon
Reinforcements were daily arriving at Con
stantinople. The Sardinian contigent had land
ed in excellent condition, and .were well'suppli
ed wits materials of war. It is also stated that
Belgium would furnish 20,000 men.
The Vienna Conferences had not 'been reo
pened, and it' w rumored that England and
France had rejee1ed the propositions of Austria.
It was rumored that. the Grand Duke Con
stantine had resigned the command of the Rus
sian Navy, and that the Peace party.was in the
ascendant at St. Petersburg.
COMMERCIAL INTELLIGEE.-.The Liverpool
Cotton Market.-The Circular of Messrs. Milli
gan, Evans and Lempiere of the 1st instant says
that the war news from the Crimea was regard
ed as important, and that the Cotton market had
been active with a speculative demand, and
prices had advanced id. per lb.- The sales du
ring the week had comprised 152,500 bales, of
which speculators took 81,500 and exporters
5000, leaving 66,000 bales of all descriptions to
the trade. Fair Orleans 71d.; Middling Orleans
611-164.; Fair Uplands 67-8d.; and Middling
Uplands 6 7-16d. The stock of Cotton in the
port of Liverpool comprised 529,000 bales, in
luding 332,000 American.
IMPORTANT MistoN TO FLoniwa.-We had
the plea'sure of an interview yesterday afternoon,
with Mr. Townsend Glover, an enthusiastic ar~
ist and naturalist ~of distinction, commissioned
by the Patent'Office .to. investigate the natural
history of insects injurious and beneficial to
rops in various sections of the Uujon. Mr.
Glover spent the greater portion of the last
year in Carolina, Alabama, and the interior of
our own State, watching the habits and opera
tions of insects known to coatton an-i rice -plan-.
tera. His observations are.of the nlost minute
and accurate character, made withy mierosecope in.
and, and cannot fail; when publsedas thiey
soon will be, under the patronage of the Gov
ernment, to contribute greatly to a most impor
tat branch of knowledge. They will be acs
omparnied with illustrations- drawn with great
curacy, and* engraved on stone, that the stu
dent or planter may see at a glance the history,
ature and peculiar habits of the insect whose
perations, perhaps, have long bden a mystery
Mr. Glover is nowv on his wqy~ to Florida,
where we bespeak for him that kind reception
which his mission demands, and which our
neighbors of the" Land of Flowers" know full
well how to give.-Savannah Georgian.
