THE SPANISH REBELLION.
M'."RID, December ll.-The proposals of
capitulation mado by the insurgents at Cadiz
were rejected. At the expiration of tho ai mis
tice hostilities were recommenced, and a des?
perate conflict took place, in which artillery
was used by the troops and tho insurgents.
The loee in lolled and wounded was heavy on
both sides. The result was indecisive. The
insurgents still occupy the Hotel de Vide and
the surrounding district. The rebels have de?
tained within the Hotel de Ville ull the foreign
consols they could seize, and hope by this
means to be able to prevent the threatened
bombardment of that'portion of the city by tbe

tained. The national militia was ordered to
proceed against them.
Later advices from Cadiz say the ai mis tice
is prolonged by both parties consenting to
await the arrival of tho President of the Re?
publican Committee of Seville, who will en?
deavor to mediate. Should this fail, the po?
emment will commence vigorous measures.

States Circuit Court this morniDg, Judge Un?
derwood presiding, thc case of Sally Andersou
(colored) sentenced to death by thc County
Court for arson, was brought up on hab?a?
corpus, on tho ground that one of the ma?

her had held thc office of constable before

COLUMBIA, S. C., December 12,18d8,
Judge John T. Green, of tho Third Circn
rendered an important decision yesterday,
the case of ono Jenningo of Loxingtou Couul
It appears that Jennings wai tried and so
tenced by a military commission, in April, 18i
He was confined in Fort Macon, North Cu
lina, by order ot Goueral Canby. Recently,
accordance with instructions from tho W
Department, he was transferred from Fo
Macon to the jail in Ricblaud County in tl
State. Messrs. Bachman and Watics, yest?
day, sued out a writ ol' hab?as corpus to brir
him before Judge Gro:-n. Thc case was boa
at twelve o'clock yesterday. Counsel for prl
oner contended that no sentence of a milita
j commission could be executed by the prese
i State anthoritios, and that thc duty of b
Honor was to discharge the prisoner.
This raised tho question of the legali
of tr?ale by military commissions. Tl
State was represented by Attorney-Gen
ral Chamberlain, who claimed that the se
lenee of military commissions stood upon pr
cisely thc same footing as tho sentence of cn
tribunals under tho provisional Rovornmen
and were to be executed in the samo mann
so soon as the prisoners were turned over t
tho United States to the State authorities; thi
the only remedy for tho prisoner in the prosoi
instance was by an appeal to Executivo den
ency. The point is a very interesting one I
lawyers, and ono upon which they aro niue
divided. His Honor ?ulgo Green held di
tinctly that the position ta'sen by tho Attorue
General was correci. and that he had no ai
thority to interfere with the execution of set
tences pronounced by military officials.
In the Uuited Statis Court to-day thc cat
of Professor Charles Bidford va. Alexandf
McBco, ct al, excited much interest. It was
bill for relief and account. Messrs. Sullivan i
Stokes, of Newberry, appeared for cotnplaii
ants, and Messrs. Easiey & Wells for d?font
ants. After thc hearing of able and eloquot
arguments on both sides, an order was pz^sc
referring the whole case to tho Uuited State
Commissioner, to report certain points thcrci
specified which tho court deemed not sufi
Thc case is a suit on a bond given by th
Baptist College to tho complainant, who wa

Tho defence was that tho complainant wa
wholly incompetent, and the institution sun
rapidly, realizing nothing, mainly on ace om
of tho president's incompetency. Thero wer
rispectable gentlemen testifying to bis thoi
ough competency, and others cqual'y respoc!

rendered tho necessity of thc order of rofercne
