strong and oven n^ry conviction one way or
other, a conviction ot likely to be affected by
legal argument. ?teteen-twentioths of the w
citizens of Virginia-n their hearts believe
Davis to be legally mocent. A negro jury
Radical jury would ?rtainly convict. But to
negroes on tho jury,n ?aioh a trial would b
outrago on justice anqocanov, and it would n
tho most barefaced Icking' to collect a jur
white Radicals. It is orthy of notice that i
thor division of opinioond interest, ari9in:r f
tho collateral consoquoie3 0f the opposite cor
tutional doctrines, pro>bj among tho Radi
themselves. While mos0f them, recrardlesi

Mr. Creely-porceivo tit, these two thoo
mutually exclude each o\-r. If socossion

involve the forfeiture of-tjb ngura ot

on tho charge of treason weld involve the 1<
consequence that tho Soutrn States aro in
possession of all their domcc and Federal rig]
and would carry with it thiondemnation of
whole legislation of Congressubsequently to
war. If, on the other band, cession was a Ic:
ly accomplished fact, then t| South is a conqt
ed country, and must abidtho pleasure of
conqueror's; but then Mr. ?via ia not a tra:
but a prisoner of war. Teoically, thora can
no doubt that this uilemi is justly put; I
technical legality has beenntemptuously dis
garded in the recent legislan of Congress. S
it ia worth while to note tl tho logical inter
of tho Radicals lies not in c conviction, but
tho acquittal, of thc Confaato President; i
that moro than one of thefcaders has beou b
enough to avow thia fact. J
We sav, then, that the g?nois of tho politi
intercala involved makes itactically impoasi
that thc trial should bc a fjono; that is, that I
issuo should ho decided its loRal morita,

ed the spot where I committed the/awx pas, he waa
divested to good swimming costume, and dove like
an otter into the swollen stream. He soon arose
some distance below where the pun was, having
been swept by the tide, but called for a stout
rope; it was procured, and ho plunged again be?
neath, carrying thc end of the ropo, remained un
until he had secured it about the carriage, and
again floated to tho surface like a cork and struck
out for the shore. We all grasped th? rope, and a
stout pull lodged the gun (we thought lost) on the
bank, ready for inspection. I saw him a fow min?
utes later, "stretched complacently at full length,
with his chin supported by the loft palm, figuring
out a theory that afterwards was put in telling
practice, namely a torpedo.
It was a favorite sport for Oeneral Elliott to
gather terrapins from alligator holes, and his mon
well remember hiB grotesque appearance when he
once returned from such an excursion with both
legs of his unmentionables filled wich these hard?
backs. The comrade who attonded him on this
excursion stated that the Captain (his rank then)
had goue into tho alligator's den, turned the
monster out, and appropriated the terrapins to his
On ono occasion, one of his friends (all his mon
were friends) was poking into a hole with a stick,
when ho discovered something rough, said he,
"Captain, i think a 'gator is in there."
'Til see, he replied, and in ho went, bearing the
noose of ti rope.
The muddy pool was no little disturbed in the
short timo he was out of sight; but out he carno,
and with the aid of some mer; about, unearthed
the grim animal and dispatehed him.
Captain Elliott was prolific of ruse da guerre. A
picket on Port Royal became an eyesore to him,
and ho broke up tho post in this wise. Manning a
boat with trusty fellows, he bade them row toward
thc picket post. Before each rower was his gun.
"Fire," said he. "when I mention the name o f the
Yankee General (Saxton, I think,) upon the ap?
proach of the boat."
it waa challenged, "Halt-who comes there ?"
" Tis me, massa, heap o' man and ooman; run
away, sah; wo yorree 'bout massa Saxton-"
A dozen barrels belched their flames of death upon
tho unsuspecting picket, and a few minutes later
he was quietly appropriating for himself and squad
such little n?ck-nacl?B aa wo "rebs" only enjoyed
whon thus tskon. Tho post, ot course, was aban?
doned; but the pocls of gore showod that "some?
body was hurt."
Again, at tho same post, the enemy because un?
pleasant to him. It was thc 4th cf July when he
thought of stirrins' them up. He had been or?
dered to fire tho national salute of thirteen guns;
and concluded, in so doiug, to waste no powder.
Away he vent with his splendid battery to Port
Royal Ferry; the guns of the enemy b- Ho wed forth
the "glorious 4th," and "Hail Columby" was
strained everywhere. Elliott brought bis pieces
to bear on the picket hou?e, where a company were
in perfect ignorance of anything except the Star
Spangled Banner, and his saluto ot tuirteen was
fired with precision, as to time and aim. As tho
last sholl crashed through the hom c, it vas too
late to catch a Yank; the company had skedaddled,
and Elliott, with his men, crossed with a boat and
burned the house, leaving tho sito ashen pile.
Pincknev Island had been occupied by the
onomy. They established a company Bnugly in
view of permanency; but Elliott resolved to dis?
turb their ease. A detail of tho Beaufort artillery,
assisted by an equal number of Captain Mickler's
company, commauded by their respective officers,
landed near the picket." To gag and socure him
was short work; and, while the enemy slept, were
seen the dusky figuren of tho "rebs" surrounding
the house and cutting off escape. Then was
beard Elliott's commanding voice, "Surrender I"
It palsied tiiem with terror. Some attempted to
escape; some made show of fight; but the work
was short and decisive, and every man was cap.
tured, except such as were slain in tho effort to es?
A heavily armed vessel blockaded St. Helena.
She was tended by a cutter. Elliott had seen her
until he wearied of her picture. I saw him leave
on the cars, with his frail skiff and half a dozen
mon, and a can that lo >kcd not unlike a lard c~n.
Night came on ; ho approached tho vessel ; e mt

cutter, (the nearer of the two vessels, ) and the
morning sun shone upon fragments that strewed
the placid bay. The crow were all destroyed with
Tb? gunboat George Washington ventured too
close to Chisolm's Island, and grounded. Elliott
bad been idle and was "spoiling for a fight." He
heard tho nows with gladness. All night tue com?

trained for her huge hull; the fido roso and she
floated olear, and would have escaped but for the
unerring aim of the gunners. In fifteen minutes
from the time of tho first shot, the gunboat was a
mass of llame; and so rapid was firing kept up,
and deadly the aim of tho battery, that she replied
but twico to the attack from her heavy armament.
Her massy bell and deck howitzer were transferi ed
to camp, "and, until tho evacuation of Pocotaligo,
the bell usurpod tho place of the bugle. In the
