On Tuesday morning upon opening the
Court, Judge Graham, upon looking over
the criminal docket, inquired cf the Solici
tor, what disposition he proposed to make
of the case <d" Hie State against [?'. J. Muses,
Jr., ai.?l J. L. Humbert, indicted for 1.reach
of trust and larceny. Solicitor Butt? state 1
in substance "That as a motion wax made
at the last Urm of the Court loqunshtho
indictment against F. J Misch. Jr.. one of
the defendants, on (he ground thai ho could
not be tried for any offense while Governor
of the State nnd as the Court, during vaca
tion, had granted the motion, it would be
impossible for him to tako any further ac
tion during the present terni of the Court.
Solicitor I.'uttz, however, further stated that
as the Governor's oliicc would expire pre
vious '.o the Jsnurary term of the Conn be
would lie able to prepare a new liil! of in
dictment, nnd give it to the Grand Jury,
lie therefore moved (o continue (lie case of
J. L. Humbert. The'motion was granted.

their destinies in the hands of a man who
stands ready to betray his party in order to
secure the support ol its most in; relent iug

Hanked by lesser lights in sympathy with the

other man ? For the glory of tho Sla'.e, the
grand principles of tho parly, mil other
considerations unsaid, he wanted to elect
