U. S. CJCBCUIT COURT-CHIEF JU STICE
S. P. CHASE, PRESIDING.
The court opened at ten o'clock yesterday
morning, Chief Justice Chase and Judge Bryan
on the bench.
The jury answered to their names. Ths con
sideraci?n of the case of the United States vs.
Wm. Morrison et al was resumed.
Mr. Coram addressed the jnry on the part of
the government, and was followed by Mr. Con?
ner for defendant. At the conclu*. on of the
argument and previous to the charge of the
Chief Justice, Mr. Corbin submitted the fol?
lowing to the court :
In this case the court is requested to charge
tbe jury :
1. That ff the defendant, Morrison, accepted
the office of Postmaster, at Winnsboro', S.
C., on the 20tb day of December, 1859. and
bound himself to keep safely all the public
money collected by him, or otherwise, at any
time placed in hiB possession and custody, till
the same was ordered by tbe Postmaster-Gen?
eral to be transfered or paid out, * * * *
* * and faithfully account with the United
States in the manner directed by the said
Postmaster-General, for all monies, postage
stamps, stamped envelopes, etc., &c., which
he, as postmaster, or as agent and depository,
should receive for tbe use and benefit of tbe
Poatoffios Department ; and if be entered
upon the duties of that office, and continued
therein up to tbetflst of May, 1861, and receiv?
ed the salary anaonmmissions allowed by law
therefor, he muBt\ held strictly to the un?
dertaking in bis bond ; and if tbe evidence
shows that dering his continuance in said
office, as postmaster, there came to his hands
property of the United States to the amount of
$772 27,^ which he has not accounted for. or
pud over, as required by the Postmaster-Gen?
eral, then a verdict for said amount with ? mer?
est at the rate of six per cent, from the date
of the default must be rendered for the plain
2. That tbe defendant, Morrison, did in oar
suance of the order of the Postoffice Depart?
ment of tbe Confederate States, forrard to that
office at Bichmond all, or any portion of the
property of too United States, to wit : $51 07
in stamped envelopes, is not a proper account-1
ing to the Gov? mment of the United 8tates
therefor, and does not bar the right of tbe
United states to recover judgment against said I
defendant and "ns sureties for the same. ^ |
3. That said Confederate- States or govenW
ment was an unlawful combination of divers
persona, eneaged in unlawful insurrection and
rebellion against the Government of i be United
States and within the territory thereof, unlaw?
fully usurping the powers of government, and
as snob it continued to be unrecognized as
having any la wini existence, till suppressed by
the military power of the United States; hence
neither said Confederate Government, nor its
offioers or agents, could originate any legal
action or issue any order which the defendant
Morrison was bound to obey.
4. That the surrender of tbe $5107 in stamp?
ed envelopes belonging to the United States,
by defendant Morrison, on the order of the I
agent of the Confederate Government, receiv- I
ed by him thronarh the mails, was not a BUT
render or Melding up of the United States
property under tbe pressure or irresistible
foi ce, bot s violation of the condition of his
official bond, unauthorized and contrary to I
5. That the deetmotion of the $131 62 in
postage stamps, by tbe United States forces,
is no defence to this action unless he, Morri?
son, postmaster, shows affirmatively :
L That he was loyal to the Government of
the United States.
2. That snob, destruction occurred without
his negligence or default.
Chief Justice Chase then charged the jury
Gentlemen of the Jury-We shall decline to I
ci ve the instructions asked for by the counsel
tor the government, except so far as they are
embodied in what we shall now proceed to say.
The policy of the Government of he United
States, in respect to the business of the Post
office Department, requires that principals
and sureties upon the bonds of postmasters I
shall beheld liable at all events. The deci- I
sions of the courts have constantly affirmed
thia doctrine. Neither robbery nor theft, nor
misadventure of any kind, except, perhaps,
when caused by the action of the government
itself, will excuse a postmaster or his sureties. J
It is admitted, io accordance with this prin- j
oiple, tbat the present defendants aro liable to
the .\mount of $370. But, it is claimed that
the postmaster, and, of course, his sureties
also, axe reliov, d, as to certain other liabilities
assessed against him by the government.
Ibis relief, under the acta of Congress, can
arise only in two ways: either through acts of ]
Confederate troops, or through acts of the na?
No relief could arise under any authority of
tbe Confederate Government. That govern?
ment was founded in an at.empt to throw off j
tho authority of the United States and estab?
lish an independent republic, If that attempt
had succeeded, all transactions authonzea by
the Confederate Government moBt doubtless
have been recognized as lawful. But in the
absence of success chat government was itself
unlawful. Its whole existence was a continned
rebellion against the lawful government of tbe
Un ted States. No one could be protected in
any action ly the sanction of its authority.
The only exceptions to this ore acts of war. .
The National Government, in tbe exercise of
a sound discretion, conceded belligerent rights
lo the armies of the insurgent States during
the late civil war; and acts of a strictly mili?
tary character, performed under military au?
thority, may be protected by this conoession.
Tbis, however, bas nothing to do with the
present case. It is not pretended that the
postmaster failed to account to tho govern
ment in consequence of any military orders,
nor, Indeed, would military orde-s for snob a j
porposs constitute a defence.
But the Congress of the ifni ted States, sen?
sible of the hardships which must act md the
vigorous enforcement ot the rule, to which we
have adverted, against postmasters for de-1
faults occasioned by the late civil war, bas
thought fit to afford them a certain measure
of relief. The act of 1864 authorizes the Post?
master-General to credit postmasters for cer?
tain losses occasioned by the Confederate
forces or rebel guerillas. This relief ia o >ufia- j
ed to loyal postmasters. The act of 1865 ex
tend ? the same relief to oases where the losses j
are occasioned by armed forces ether than (
those of tbe so-sailed Confederate States.
If yon find, therefore, that part or the loss I
in the present case was occasioned by armed
forces other thin those of the Confederate
States, at the plaoe where this post office was j
established, that is to say at Wmnsboro', yon
wi :1 deduct tbe amount of such loss from tho
whole amount of tbe account stated.
Tbe whole law noon the subject may be
briefly stated thus : Yon ara bound to take
the amount stated in the account furnished
from the Postoffiso Department as the true
amount doe from the principal defendant.
Neither he nor his snrities are excused from
the payment of tbat amount by any Joss
through fraud or forco. except under th? acts
of Congress referred to! For losses ?'cso'i i bod I
by these acts the defer dants ate nos respon
sible. If you find, therefore, tbat any part of ]
the loss of tbe principal d?tendant was oe- j
c-isioaed by the presence of armed forces
other than those ot tbo insnrgeet-States, yon
will dednct that, amount from tho sum stated
in the post?nico account, ??and render a verdict
tor the balance. ? . .
In respouse lo a request ot the District At- j
torncy, tho Chief Justice further charged the
jury that, interest upon the amount found due j
chould.be computed from the time of default
of payment, that is to say, from the 30fh of
The jnry retired and after being out a bon t an I

jurors had been taken sick. The jury returned

they were unable to agree upon a verdict. A
mistrial was ordered and the jury discharged.

steamer Gary vs. the General Sherman, reporb
in y estonia} 'ti NEWS :
It is not likely that I shall arrive at an
other conclusion in this case than that I
which the evidence bas already brought me.
It is a cause of salvage. The libellant mal?
no claim on the ground of contract. Admira
'ty guards the rights and enforces the du tic
arising or to be performed on the sea. It ht

Tne steamship Sherman on her voyage sont!

near Cape Lookout, and was lying ia shore i
a position wbero a change of weather migb
drive ber aground, and cause a total los*
Her engine was useless, tine bad sai.'s, bu
the evidence shows that the ship contd not b
navigated safely without thc aid of steam
Wuere abe was her sails seem to ha ve been.c
no use lo her.
In this condition of distress, she made th
ordinary signa's for assistance from other ves
sels vhich might be in the vicinity.
Bearing the sigoals the Gary came to he
relief, and negotiations took place which sho<
the estimate put by the respective parties o
the assistance needed and its value. It wa
agreed between them that the Garv would toi
tbe Sherm in inte Morl oik for $15,000.
Under tbe circumstances of this case, th
contract cannot be the measure of darna?ec
bat it is proper to take it into consideration a
showing the views o? the parties at the time
The fact that the contract was made canno
deprive the Guy, as salvor, of ber rtgbt c
compensation, if, though not performing th
contract, she rendered salvage service, am
did not forfeit ber claim to compensation b.
her subsequent conduct.
Under the contract of towage, the vessel
proceeded some rime in the direction of Nor
folk, when an unfavorable change of weathe
took place. The captain of the Gary, sa-tisflec
that it would take a great deal of time to gel
into Norfolk, proposed to obaoge the port o
destination, and go to Charleston. The pro
position was assented to by the captain of th<
Sherman, and the conrees of the eteameri
Tbey proceeded safely and easily in th?
new direction until they reached Frying Pax
Shoals, where the difficulties, which give risc
to thia action, occurred.
I cannot resist the impression made by thc
testimony for the libellants, that both veeselc
were quite safe at that moment. Undoubted?
ly there was an alarm on board of the steam?
er, and there was reason for it, for the leads?
man reported four and a half fathoms water,
and shoaling. The evidence satisfies me thal
this report was an error. 1 be captain of tbe
Sherman, however, necessarily became anx?
ious about the situation of his ship, and
changed her course, notwithstanding tho cap?
tain of the Gary, to whom ho called, assured
him that there was no danger. From this un?
necessary change of course all the subsequent
mischief arose. The Gary endeavored to ac?
commodate herself to the movements of the
Sherman, and in consequence of the manou?
vres of the two vessels, the hawser by which
the Sherman was towed parted, and the two
ve sols separated.
In this state of things it was the duty of tho
Sherman to lay to and wait assistance from
the Gary, which was obliged to take in the
hawser before tbe vessel could be safely navi?
gated. Instead of doing this, the Sherman
proceeded un.?er sa 1, the wind being favoru
blo, towards Charleston. On tho other sirle, it
was tho duty of the Gary, as soon as possible,
to render the stipulated assistance.
There is much conflict in the testimony upon
the point whether the Sherman made any sig?
nals after tho vessels separated. The weight
of the evidence is that she did not. Ou the
other hand, the evidence shows that when the
hawser was brought on board the (laiy, there
was evidence thst it had boen cut on the Sher?
man. Ibo captain of the Gary concluded,
naturally cnongb, that the separation of the
vessels was designed. The Sherman bsd gone
off, as be thought with the mtent to get rid of
the towage. Under these circumstances he
tbongbt it useless to go in pursuit.
? I co not think that the evidence that tbe
hawser was cut is conclusive, though it is
certainly strong. 1 think that the appearances,
regarded by wi nesses as evidence that it was
cat, may bo well enough accounted for by the
Cculiar circumstances under which the
weer parted. The captain of the Gary,
however, certainly had reason for the conclu?
sion he came to. Ho knew the vessels were
safe at the time tho disturbance arose upon
tho Sherman. The steamer bad gone off with?
out apparent reason; there was, what seemed
to bun, strong evidouco of a fraudulent intent
to evade tho contract on ber part.
Ali bough this conclusion docs not Bcem ?yar?
ran ed by tho evidenct bofore me. thero was,
in the circumstances of Ibo case, iu my opinion,
a sufficient excuso lo tho captain of tho Gary
for not proccoding in search of the Sherman.
He is not entitled to pa}ment under tho con?
tract as bo would bavo been it ho bad followed
the Sherman and offered to continuo in thc
performmco ot it. aud that offer had bec? re?
fused; but I think he was entitled to salvage.
Thron2ti the aid ot tbe Gary, thc .--herman bad
been rescued from danger, and brought safely a
great part ot the way to ubarles'on. Favora?
ble w'nds enabled ber to proceed still further
without that aid, and then eho lound another
vessel which towed ber into port. Under
these circumstances, I am inclined to regard
this as a eise of salvage, in which two vessels
Berformed snoocBsivcly (he ealvage 6erviots.
one of tho oiso.s which have been cited tu
argument are exactly emular, but ibe princi?
ples upon which somo of them were decided
sustain, as I think, t .is view.
Tina leaves only tho question of compensa?
tion to bo determined. Undoubtedly, if the
Gary had pursuod the Sherman, and offered
continued assiatanco, her eise would bavo
been belier; perhaps, bad eho do .e so. and
ber fun her insist anco had been declined, she
might have been entitled to thc fud amount
stipulated in tho contract. As it was. 11bi k
she was entitled _to such an amount as would
be a fair compensation for the- services netually
rendel ol by her. Sho rescued the Sherman
from a certain degreo Cf peni ; by deviating
tiom ber courso to ren 1er that assistance she
forfeited ber insurance ; ? considersblo timo
was devoted to tho service, and a certain
amount of expenditure was incurro 1. It ia
difficult t0 8aywhat isa lair reward Jor tho
services tims rendered. -
Under tbo circumstance, it seems proper to
refer to the testimony concerning the attempt
to compromise toe difference between tbe
owners of tbe two vessels. It appears tbat tbe
owners of tbe Gary were willing to take $4000,
and that the owners of the ?herman offered
$3000. This evidence, to be anre, is by no
means conclusive as to the actual value of the
services, but before I heard it, I inclined to
the opinion that $3500 might be fairly dr creed,
and tnis evidence confirmed that opinion.
Upon the whole, therefore, I will pronounce
for tbe libellant and decree $3500 as salvage.

as Jordan In Command-He Does not
?ipect to Serve In the Field.
A crrrespondont of the New York 8uDday
Neva writes from "thc Heights on the Bay of
Ni pe, Cul a," under date of May 12 :
Tho expedition of which you have been for
many weeks past a confidant was brought to a
erccessful consummation on yesterday. Wc
arrived here after having safely evaded Span?
ish cruisers, and made good our landing by
midnight ol yesterday. As you were aware,
tbe General's s turbos of the chart and topo?
graphical mips of this port, having been car?
ried out in New York, under consultation with
eminent engineers, our commander was pre?
pared, on avery brief reconnotsance, to select
a position of defence without delay. To cover
risk of movement on the part of the enemy, he
threw np some excellent works ; and, with the
experience of our veterans of tbe army o ' the
Potomac, in tbe use of the spade, we were very
soon ombled to store our material behind de?
fences which our small force of men, "tried in
fire," can make good against ten times their
The force which we had intended tobring
with us you are aw J re of. Without stating the
number (which you ilreadv know,) I mav add
that it ia, intact, but about two-thirds of'tbat,
seeing that at tbe eleventh hour tbe courage
of some of the men enlisted leaked out, like
that of Bob Acres, "at their fingers' ends."
The force actually landed ie, however, formi?
dable in its compactness, experience, and
dare-devil bravery-Americans, Germans,
Irishmen, Englishmen-some of whom have
undergone "the baptism of blood" from Chat?
tanooga to Atlanta; ubere w io have breasted
the tempest of battle from tho Wilderness to
the Five Forks. *
General Thomas Jordan is, as yon bave been
awaie tor many months, our commander. He
is a native of Loray, in tbe Valley of Virginia,
and was a captain in Ibo old army of the United
States. He was, during the war of sections,
cbief of staff to General Beauregard. His en?
gagement with the Junta of New York makes
bim second in command to the former geueral
in-chief of the revolution. C?spedes. Before
bis arrival, however-deferred, as jon are
aware, bv the mi.-carriigo o' bia former expia?
tion at Ragged Island-a change had taken
place in tbe state of affairs heie, and C?spedes
having been made President, his second in
command is in fact the present General in
Chief, Quesada. A virtual, though, it m ty be
assumed, an unintentional and perhaps un?
avoidable breach of faith with General Jordan,
has therefore folio ved; and having been
brought to tbat officer's knowledge on our
landing, does Dot aopear, aa might have been
expected, to meet the hearty acquiescence of a
mao trained, as he has been, in the jealous
punctilio of West Point.
General Jordan is not likely to consent to
play cbief of staff to Quesada. 1 he matter
will, I hope, ba compromised by hie assign?
ment to the War Department as its military
cssistant, organiser, and adviser, fie ap?
pears to think. I suspect, that his duties will
not be those of the field, though bis men, not
being very well adapted for civil service, will
object to being led to battle under any Cuban.
Herein we fear some difficulty at the start, but
committed as we are to the struggle, that diffi?
culty will very soon vanish when the enemy
comes within reach of oar rifles. We have
sent out part ot our force to collect transporta?
They came, unexpectedly to both, noon a
small body of Spanish troops placed as a guard
on a neighboring pioperty, but very soon per?
suaded the Dons to part company with them
at an unceremonious speed. Teams are being
brought in for the removal of onr material to
tho headquarters of C?spedes. Our communi?
cations with him bave bceo opened, and al?
ready have wo received visits from some rag?
ged and hungry-looking palriots who are said,
in our camp, to hold the rank of Generals. I
have no more to add than to tell yon, io con?
clusion, that all so far his prospered; that wa
are in fine health and spirits, and tor the time
safe from garroting, behind some pretty
works, mouutod, landward and soaward, with
six very ocat-looking fleld-piecjs.
Letters received at Washington, yes'erday,
state that the force under General Jordan bad
succeeded in joining tho Cuban forces, after
sever:! fights, in all of which the Spaniards
were repulsed with severe loss. General Jor?

A QUEER SUICIDE.
A ?Ian Kill? Himself that lil? Children
may Derive the Benefit of Insurance
on his Life.
[From the Chicago Tribune, Ma; 20. J
? suicile under rather peculiar circum?
stances, and one of tbe incentives to which
was obviously a desire to bestow on relatives a
large sum of money to be obtained on a life in?
surance, was committed, in this city either on
Monday night or yesterday. The particulars
are as follows : Several weeks since a middle
aged mon named ?. Stephenson, with two lit?
tle children, arrived in this city, evidently from
Canada, and took lodgings at a boarding
house kept by a lady named Mrs. Eliza Clark
located at No. 187 Adams-street. - He stated
thatbe was an engineer, and m a day or two
made a trip on one of our lake steamers.
During hie absence the childreo weic well pro?
vided with money by bim and such comforts
as they could reason? bly desire. On Saturday
nuht he returned, and stated that he had
concluded to Bend his children back to Canada.
On Monday be took the little ones ard placed
them on board of a Canada propeller. He re?
turned to tho house about 9 o'clocu, and im?
mediately sought his room.
When he did not make his appearance at
breakfast a servant was sent to call him, but
she found the door closed, and nothing more
was done about the matter until noon, when a
carrier brought a letter to bim. The propri?
etress of tee place and the carrier both visited
his room, and finding it locked, with tbe key
on thc in Bide, the door was forced open. On
entering the room a ghastly sight met their
gaze. On the bed, undressed to hie under?
clothing, lay the body of Stephenson with his
throat cut from ear to ear with a razor. Tbe
suicide had been very particular as to details
in committing the act, and placed his panta?
loons under his pillow, carefully adjusted his
other clothing on a chair, and otherwise con?
formed with the strictest rule of safety and
propriety. Before he undertook the bloody
deed he had carefully tucked the bedclothes
about his person. The following letter, ad?
dressed lo a brother of the landlady, was
found on the dressing stand by the redside.
To judge from its contents, the "almighty dol?
lar'' was one of the incentives to the act:
"CHICAGO, May 24,1869.
"Dear Sir-Will yon be kind enough to put
some sort of a coma about me and lay me in a
grave somewhere ? Send a copy of the verdict
of the coroner or a oortifled copy of mv death
to B. L. Stephenson, Perth, County of Lanark,
Ontario, Dominion ot Canada, via Bait more
and Ohio Ra lroad. Ho will pay all expenses
which you mav incur. The certificate of my
death is necessary, as my life is insured for a
large BUT', of money. The vessel which took
my two little girls away to-night snapped the
last link which bound me to this world. I
changed my mind and determined to go on a
different journey to that which I first contem?
plated. Excuse the trouble I mnst give you,
and believe me truly yours, E. SrzPHENSOir.
P. 8.-Please keep all quiet as yon can. If
you send the documents mentioned above, you
may rest assured that you will be amply remu?
nerated for any trouble you may be at. E. 8."

The Chester Beporter says that "persons
who bought and planted Dickson Cotton Seed,
in that and Tork County, agreo in the state?
ment, that the plant from this seed has Buf?
fered more from the coid weather than any
other kind of cotton. A-, a general rule they
have failed entirely in getting a stand."
The S part auburn Gazette says : "Quite a
large audience was in attendance at the Court?
house on Tuesday night last, to listen toan
adjiess by the Bight Bev. Bishop Lyncb. He
presented a very olear, concise and interesting
view of the rise and progress of Christianity,
confining himself exclusively, however, lo the
external development ot the church."

Tbe Herald says that "the last few days have
been warm enough for the planter whoso hopes
for a cotton crop bad weil nigh died out in
consequence of tho previous extreme cold."
Tba same paper Bays : "On a short jaunt
into the country last week we were pained to
see so little corn along the road, only here and
there, or few and very tar between, did the
coro plantings show themselves, but wherever
they did, it waa refreshing to seo the plant BO
vigorous and fine, while, on tho other* hand,
although there was scarcely anything oise but
cotton Denis to be seen, in many esses to dis?
cover tho plant would have required the use of
a magnifying glass of great power. That cotton
is looking bad is undeniable, but from the vost
quam itv ot land planted it may be calculated
that if no further backsets or accidents ~ccur,
the crop will be a fair average one Wheat bar
vesting has commenced, and tho weather is
highly propitious. We have made some inquir?
ies about tbe breadth of land in wheat, and thc
probable yield. The doctors arc about divided.
Some say that tho usual area was sown, but
that tbe'yield will not be so large as that of
last season owing to tho lato heavy winds and
rain having materially atteoted the bloom.
Others affirm that not* more than two-thirds
tho amount of land was planted, but that the
soason having been favorable, the nights cool,
?Sec., little or no rust is seen, and that tho yield
trill bo an average o ie. A gentleman who
passed ovoi a large section of tbe lower part of

A PflOTOGBAPH OF Bu ILES.-The Imperialist
says of tho hero of Fort Fisher :
General Butler is pre-eminently a "represen?
tative man" of this day and generation in
Amorica. Coarse, violent, unscrupulous, the
traditional "Tombs lawyer" all but deified, he
is yet the most complete living embodiment
of the kind of energy which now controls what
we cill our "republic." He is the universal
caucus in brdily form. We could not more
completely depict our present system of gov?
ernment than by affixing his photograph to a
diaft of the grim relic of our battered shuttle?
cock of a constitution. We shall be quite
ready to accord to Mr. Butler the amount of
credit which will undoubtedly belong to him
for his important servies to the cause in which
wc are laboring, if there wuro only a dozon
euch men in America wo would bavo an empire
bet?re thc next Presidential election, lor ihe
nation woul 1 fly lo it ns their only refuge Irom

AW SCIENCE ADVANCES.-AS SOON A8
an article purporting to be of utility has been test?
ed, and its merits endorsed by public opinion, un?
principled parties endeavor to. tepleLish their de?
pleted purses by counterfeiting and substituting
a spurious for the genuine arti cle. Som e. time since.
mercury, in the disguise of pills, powders, ftc, was
given for all diseases of the stomach and liver, while
quinine was freely administered for the chills. At
length HOSIETTEB'S STOMACH BIT1EBS made
ita advent, and an entire new system of healing waa
inaugurated. The benc?c'al effects of this valuable
preparation were at once acknowledged, and miner?
al poisons suffered to sink into that obscurity to
which an en'ighiened age has consigned them. There
have been many spurious Bitters palmed upon the
community, which, after trial have been found per?
fectly woi thiess, while HOSTETTER'S has proved a
Messing to thousands, who owe to it their restora?
tion to health.
For many years we Lave watched the steady pro?
gress of HOSTE TT ER'S STOMACH BITTERS in
public estimation, and its beneficent effects as a
cure for all complaints arising from the stomach
of a morbid nature, and we are free to say that
it can be relied upon as a certain relief and rem?
edy. Its proprietors have made the above prepa?
ration, after years of careful study and sitting, and
are now reaping the rewsr.1 claimed by this valu?
able specific, and which they so richly merit. It
is the only preparation ot the kind tbat is re?
liable in all cases, and it therefore deminds tbe
attention of the afflicted.
