of Mr. Brawley as followu:

The solicitor then went into a
lengthy, thorough and exhaustive re

law bearing upon them, and enzed in
an eloquent appeal to the jury to do
their duty fearlessly. It wjs for

Mr. Colfax's position as a Credi
Mobilier share holder is no longe
the main element in his case. He i
on trial before the people whom h(
was elected faithfully to represent
and before the party some of whose
highest honors he has received, noi
so much for dabbling in stock whicl
he ought never to have thought of
touching, but for having quibbed and
prevaricated in regard to transactions
whose criminalty he indirectly ad,
mitted, by taking unworthy nean
to disguise his connection with them.
Mr. Colfax ought, like the humblest
of his fellow-citizens, to have all the
fair suspense of judgement which can
justly be claimed on the scoro of a
long and hitherto unblemished public
career. His statements, moreover,
ought to have the superior weight duo
to them when laid against the confus
ed recollection and fragmentary notes
of a convicted briber like Oakes Ames.
But when all such deductions have
been made in Mr. Colfax's favor, it
must be conceded that every step of
his justifieation becomes more difficult,
from the discovery, that no statement
yet made by him has conveyed the
entire truth in regard to the trans
actions covered by it. This perpetu
al necessity to meet now discoveries
by fresh explanation, instead of an
ticipating these discoveries by a full
and explicit narrative, cannot but be
very damaging to the Vice President.

There should undoubtedly be a
general international contract framed
to cover, with strict exactness, the
whole subject of collisions at sea. The
general principle of maritime comity
is, that in ease of all such accidents,
however trifling, the ships shoul:l
stand by each other until mutually
assured that neither is in danger.
But there is no certain means, as the
Northfleet and Murillo example shows
of enforcing this principle, or of pun
ishing its violation in special cases -
and as that example likewia 0 shows,
therecan be no security that brutes
may not be fond on occasion to profit
by the technioal immunity. Conse
quently, there is need of an express
provision, to be engrated upon currout
international law, and submitted for
the.formal assent of all the civilized
powers. Only by making the punish.
ment of such infamous barbarity as
that of the officers of the Murillo
