BY LAST NIGHT'S MAIL.
TBIAX. or sore, DAVIS posTroita-.
A special diapatoh from Washington to the New
Tork Daily News, dated May 25, aaya:
There ia no more probability of the speedy
trial of Jeff. Davis now than there was two or
three months ago. Indeed, the opposition to
having him tried in the civil courts is so great
sometimes it aeoms that the whole projeot of hav
ing him so tried will have to be abandoned. The
Chief Justice, the Attorney General, and the
Badioal leaders generally, are at the bottom of
this oppoaiiion, which la found? d on the well
known fact that a civil trial would result in the
full acquittal of the prisoner.
Every possible obstacle, tuereforo, has been put
in the way of suoh a trial, and the Attorney Gen
eral has now decido?) to postpone it until the next
December term of the Court, rho Baiiioala freo
ly express the most bloodthirsty vindiotiveuesB
toward Mr. Davis, and do not hesitate to expro-a
the desire that he should di?- in prison ra'h? rthan
be tried and acquitted. The ?House Judiciary
Committee are so filly as to continue their efforts
to have Mr. Davis tried before a military tribunal
as an active accomplice in the -eaassiuation of Mr.
Lincoln, and tnoy autuoriz? d the statement to be
made only yesterday that thoy bad full proof of
his guilt. It is rep ?i-tt-d that Mr. Davis is to be
released on parole, in accordance with the request
of Mrs. Davis. It is the opinion of the iiik't.oat
medical authority that a few weeks more confine
ment would terminate his lito.

Tho Washington correspondent of tho Baltimore
Sun, uudor dato of the 25th inat., from Washing
ton, apoaka as follows of tho present position of
the Congressional reconstruction mensuro:
The S*;nato is in danger of gol ting into an on
tnnglemont upon the reconstruction measure.
There is no prospoot that they can agree upon tho
joint resolution as roported from tho committee
of tirtt-ou This scheme is dead, as a perusal of
Mr. Howard'- spi edi, introductory to it, well
shows. The third soction must, at any rate, be
stricken out, and the question in. what ahall be
substituted for it? Probably it will be a provision
that all men who, abovo the age of twenty-five,
gave voluntary tupport to tho rebellion, t?hsll bu
incapable or holding office, either under the Stato
or Feder?! Govorumeut. Tho Bidicala will hard
ly agroo tu support any moaauro that ahall not
fnrce negro suffrage upon all the States, aud ahall
als ) disfranchise tbo wholo inaau of ?Southern citi
zens who participated in tho rebellion. But this
extreme position has become untenable, and (tie
Republican mijority know it, and are now bout
upon such a compromise with the Sumner wing
aa wdl enable them to aave their party at the fall
oleetiona. If they can agreo upon nothing and
adjourn, leaving tho field to the Proa?dent, they
wnl bo divided, ?oof-d at, and ejected by tua peo
ple at the fall oleotions.
The Kepublioan Senators, under the circum
stances, hold a CAUCUS this morning from ten till
twelve o'clock, and then adjourned to meet again
this afternoon. The regular session waa contin
ued, therefore, ouly for the morning hour. The
subject for consideration is the feasibility of giv
ing snoh a shape to the constitutional amendment
SB will secure its adoption by a two-thir J* vote of
the Senate. Toe committee of fifteen has failed
in both attempts to effect this object, nnd it has
become necessary for tho Bepublioan Senators to
reaolvo themselves into a sort of committee of the
whole on the state of their party, which appears
to be in a rapid declino.
The correspondent of the New Tork 7\ibune
from Washington, 25th inet., gives tho following
information of cotton planting in Mississippi, and
the visita of Commodore S_t_-s and Mrs. DAVIS :
COTTON IN -dliSIBSrPJ- AUD MOUTH -_OLI??A.
Gen. Tiiomaa, late Bureau Commissioner for the
State of Mississippi, and now on Gen. Howard'a
?taff, reports that before tho war that State uaed
to raiao about 1,000,000 balea of cotton, or nearly
one-quarter the entire yield of the United t- tates.
He thinks this year's crop will reach 600,000 balea.
Ho a a j-s the best lauds along the banka of the
Mississippi River are being cultivated by North
ern men with adequate capital, who -tua enjoy
epeoial facilities for securing labor and supplies
over the old planters who occupy the lands of the
interior. Tbe flooding of the river banka, he
thinks, will not injnro the cotton crop ; but. if it
should, replanting may be continued up to the
middle of June with assurance of a good orop.
CoL Bryon Laflin of New York, who has a cotton
plantation in North Carolina, gives a vory flatter
ing account of the prospectivo yield in that State.
MllH. DAVIS AND HIIMWES.
Mrs. Jeff. Davis has been at the White House,
holding an interview with the President. Semines
ia in town, and had au interview with tho Presi
dent, to-day, in reference to his pardon.
Mrs. Jeff. Davis has received many callers to
day from those who were desirous of doing her
honor and of showing her sympathy. Upon con
sultation with her friends, she has concluded not
to ask for her nushand'a parole, but merely the
range of the fort for the present. She also de
sires the removal of Gen. Miles, of whom BIIO
complaina aa not respecting tho person and feel
ings of her husband. . ,
The Amador (Cal.) ledger tells the subjoined:
"A abort timo ago a widow lady, residing in a vil
lago not a thousand milos from here, put hor house
up at a r-.fll(i, and very aoon disposed of the tickets
all feeling dispoaod to assist her. The evening
arrived for the raille to come off, and tho house
was won by a geutloman who thought himself
fortunate in obtaining a homestead so choap.
Tho next day ho applied for posaeaaion and a title
to the property. What was bia surprise when ho
waa coolly informed that it was unnecessary to
give any written title to tho house-that thero it
was, and to take it ; and the sooner tho better, as
she wau anxious to build another on the spot
where it stood. The winner discovered that he
had drawn an elephant-he had a house, but no
mt ? ? .
ANNA COBA BITOHIB, in a letter from London,
aavs: "The fadod beauties who cling to their
vanished oharms have taken great interest in the
sudden lejuvenation of Miss BU&DBTT COUTTS,
under the hands of the wonderful 'Restorer'
Madame RACHEL. MisB COUTTS, it is said, had to
pay ?400 before she commenced tho baths with
which tbo process of rejuvenation begins. After
going through the regular course of treatment,
Miss Courra dawned upon the faahlonable world
with the -layers of some twenty birthday a' rolled
off from her person. Her hair not dyed, but re
stored, and growing anew; her defective complex
ion olear and soft-tbe linos wbioh tell such tales
of tho workings of the human heart and human
brain smoothed out, and the impress of time sud
denly effaced from her general appearance."
The tide of emigration wost?vard-alroady largo
-promises to exoeod that of any previous year.
Thousands, Bays a Chicago letter, are coming into
tho Mississippi Valloy. Largo numbers aro cross
ing tho plains, of whom the bulk aro bound to
Colorado, Montana and Idaho. The prospect of
a comparativo early completion of tho Pacific rail
road induces many to await that event before jour
neying to the Territorios beyond, or to the Paoifio
States. Canada is contributing quito largely to
this tide of emigration, while the Eastern States
aro doing their share. All the towns in tho West
are full and overflowing, and reports come to us
from all quarters that there is a presting demand
for dwellings, but a very inadequate supply.

not torn over position of fissure; but an evident
rapture of blood vesaela had nevertheless occur
red, producing the extravasation alluded to, and
ultimately causing the death of the patient by
convulsiona and com pression of the nor vea spring
ing from the baee of the brain.
- The cause of her death waa of a two-fold na
ture, both springing from the aame mechanical
injury, viz. : Compression on the vital nerves at
the base of the brain, and the irritation and in
flammation of the surface of the brain, corres
ponding to the extravaaation.
The mechanical arrangement of the parta is
such aa to warrant the conclusion that tho in
ternal leeiona arose from those external injuries
observed by the eye,
Such a fraoture may sometimes be produced
without any appearance of external injuries. A
fracture at the base of the brain might occur from
a blow inflicted upon any other portion of the
brain, without exhibiting any external evidence of
injury at the locality upon whioh the blow im
pinged, especially if the force be applied not at a
limited point, but over a surface of sumo extout.
A person falling from an upright position might
receive such a fracture, especially if the system
is in a relaxed condition, as in a state of drunken
ness; if no off ?rt is made at recovery, i-.nd if the
impetus of the weight of the body Is further in
creased by a b ow or push.
Cr its-Examined : Never knew of a slap in the
face, from a man's ?.?peu hand, producing death.
[Many other witnesses were examined, both on
the part of the proseoution and in behalf of the
acousod, but the facts elicited by their ovidenco are
not materially different from those alr-ndy given
To save space, therefore, we omit their testimony.]
II. P. BLIGH, a oitixen of Charleston, waa charg
ed with purchasing, for one dollar, a new uniform
overcoat from a soldier, Eza. A. GREEN, CO. A,
64th Regiment N. Y. V. The aale of the overcoat
to the aoouaed waa proven by the aaid E. A.
GnEKtt. The defence offered provea that the
coat waa offered to Mr. BLIGH, who refus
ed to purchaso it ; thsj a city polioemao,
by tho name of MIOHAEL DUFFY, who waa in the
store at,the time, followed the soldier, and bought
the coat of bim for three dollars. DUFFY was the
principal witnoss for the defeuoe, and his testi
mony was corroborated by Mr. BOBEE (io the
employment of Mr. Biaiou), who waa present at
B. W. SEYMOUR, Esq., counsel for the defence.
III. ISIDOBE LEWIS, white, a store-keepor in
Tradd-street ; charged with porchasing ono pair
of uniform panta of a aoldier.
EZIIA A. UBSEN proved the sale of the panta
for ono dollar.
B. W. SEYMOUR, Esq., appoared aa counsel for
the defeuoe. Offered no witness but tho wife of
the aoouaed, who was .withdrawn upon being ob
Counael for the accused contended that inas
much a?) thero waa D9 ?.roof of an intent to aid or
abot desertion, that a conviction could not tako
place uuder the Aot of Congress, Seotioa 24, Act
or March 3, 1803.
IT. OA8PAB HART, white, No. 88 King str"t;
charged with purchasing of a soldier a pair of
panta for a dollar, and a pair of ahoea for aoventy
flvo cents. EZIIA A. GBBHH proved the tale of the
goods. Tho aoouaed ffored no dofence, but do
niod knowing the accused or ever having seen bim,
until he waa notified to appear in this case.
The Military Commission found Alfred Polot
" not guilty.?'
BLIGH, not " guilty."
OABPAB HABT fouud " guilty" of the Charge, ex

IainoBE LEWIS, found guilty. Sentence similar
to that of OABI'AB HABT.
Wo mako tho following extract from tho General
Order (No. 44), of donor al D EVENS, revising tho
action of thia Commission:
V. The proceeding? and finding? in the caeos of
Isidoro Lewis and Caspar Hart (citizous) aro ap
proved. The evidence in ,hose ?.asea shows t. at the
witness Creen, having h-d certain Government
clothing turned over to him, temp rarily, for tho
special purpose of ?jelling it to parties in Charles
t n, sold portions of aaid clothing to different
persons, and thereupon informed upon those to
whom ho bad sold it. Tho law of March 3d, 1863,
makes tho purehaso of soldiers' olotbing, for tho
purpose of aiding and abetting desertion, a pun
ishable offonce, and the purohaee of tho clothing
ia prima facie evidence of such intent; bnt when
tho intent is disproved the penalty should not bo
enforced, as tim law ia not violatod. The Com
mission find that thero waa no intent to aid de
sertion, and therefore should have acquitted the
prisoners. Tho sentences are, therefore, disap
VI. Tho means employed in these cases to pro
curo evidonco against theae parties, were not such
as, in the opinion of tho commanding General,
woro justified by tho oircumatances. Had tho au
thorities furnishing the clothing had strong moral
grounds of suspioion against the prisoners, then
it would have been proper to accumulate proof in
this way, and "couvert anapected into positive
Suilt." But to givo a roving commission to a Hol
ier to sell Govommeut olotbiug to any one who
will buy it, for the pnrpuse and with tho bone of
arresting and convicting somebody, waa both im
proper and unjustifiable. [See Holt's Digest,
Title, "Evidenco," 19 (new edition) page 99.]

An Inter?-ting Loiter.
The following interesting letter, nearly one
hundred years old, has been kindly placed in onr
hands. It waa written by BOOER PTNOKNBY, and
addressed to uis mother. It has never before boen
"Hon'd Madame :-As I am confident you must
have borne a part of the uneasiness caused by
tho late differences between Great Britain and
hor Colonies, so I am' likewise confident you re
joice with your aou in the repeal of that most in
famous act destructive to the liberty and righta
of every froe-born Englishman. Happy for
America she haa such powerful friends at
homo; happjer for England she has mon in
power that know the value of the Colonies.
We, the Colonists (for while I am here I
call myself one), return, I believe, our gene
ral thanks to that worthy member of sooiety,
Mr. GEO. GRENVILLE, who has taken s?much pains
to traduce us and call us rebels. I wish his heart
was half as firmly attached to his King and the
honor of his country as the generality of the
Americans aro. I look on him as a JANUS, as a
double minded Y-n, who, through an over care
to preserve the honor and dignity, as he oalls it, of
the K-g and Par-t, has, I am afraid, a deep
laid scheme at the bottom. And I dare say a cer
tain Scotch Lord is his chief director in the mat
ter. Pray God hu may ever be frustrated in every
ef his damned sohemes- And as we detest the namea
of GUEN VILLE and BOTE, SO we glory in the name
of P. J. T. T. We believe him (and I believe justly)
a friend to America, a friend to every true friend
and loyal subject of bis King, and as such I ven
ture to Hay he thinks us, or he would not have
espouBod our cause. His heart is too good to be
biased by prejudice or gained by corruption.
England is happy hi so great a patriot. He has
not only espoused the cauoo of Amerioa in this
affair; he has asserted for all free-born subjects
Uberty, wbioh I hope, while I live in the world,
will always be inviolably supported.
"South Carolina, sensible of the services Mr.
PITT has rendorod them, have voted a statue to
be erocted hore of the finest marble, that posteri
ty may look upon the man they are under so great
obligations to. Had I beeu a member of the
House, and it had been consistent, I would have
voted it iu gold.

CIVIL BIGHTS IN BAI.IIMORE.-Negroos from all
parts soom to bo selecting Baltimore as a theatre
for the triul of the virtues of the civil rights bill.
The other day we published an account of two ne
gro school marms from Pennsylvania having a
railroad oflicor arrested for ejeoting them from
the depot parlor, and now we have to rec >rd the
exploits of a negro named Bradley, who calls
himself a "lawyer from Boston." This fellow
i ,.ng been refused admission into a car on the
Baltimore and Ohio Bailroad, enpeoially set apart
for ladies and gentlemen, im* tituted suit against
tho Railroad Company, and claiming damages to
the amount of ono hundred dol?an*. Tuo oase
was heard on Tuesday by a justloe, who gave
judgment in favor of tho Railroad Company.
On the same day tbo same negro appeared be
fore the United States District Court to obtain an
injunction ?gainst tbo city passenger railway as a
nulaance. The Baltimore Sun gives the following
acoount of thia appearanco :
Aaron Bradley, colored, claiming to be a mem
ber of tbo legal profession, admitted to the Suf
folk bar ot Boston, appeared as a citizen of the
United States, under tbe civil rights bill, beforo
the comt, with a petition for an injiinotiun to
restrain tho City Passenger Railway Company
from passing through Lexington-street by the
Douglass Instituto, for failing to comply with
tbo terms of their charter, &c. Judgo Giles, after
listening very patiently to all tho polmont r had
to sty, stated that the United Sates Court had
no jurisdiction iu tho premiot-a. and that ti.o
proper tribunal in oases of assault waa tho Crimi
