Mr. Harringtofl opened the case for the govern?
ment in a brief address, reciting portions of the.
indictment, contending that the charge contd and
would ?ie proved. The defence reserved irs open?
ing. Mr. Hanlon L. Henderson was drat called
and sworn? He testified ?hat in I860 he was clerk
ot i he Circuit Court aaa Judge of tho Probate
Court in Tallahassee, Florida. Mr. Harrington
offered a copy Of a ceri ideate" of marriage and
license granted to Tabitha Parke and C. C. Bowen,
and asked the witness if lt was a true copy from
the records as kept by him in the court. The
question was objected to, and objection overruled.
Witness. It ls a true copy; 1 think I know the
d?fendant ; was present at bis rntrriage; the maf
Tiag)Ucense was obtained of me, and 1 performed
the marriage ceremony; Baw Mrs Bowen to-day;
(Mrs. Bowen was brought into the conrtrl recog?
nized her as the lady; Mr. Bowen came to?is
town and put np at the tavern; he-told me that
he wanted to get married, and sol performed the
ceremony; Mrs. Bowen was married under the
name or Tabitha Parke; f am a lawyer by profes?
sion, and issued tne license as clerk of the court:
married them as Judge of the Probate Conn; I
wasju<>ge of the court e*iLt or ten years; he re?
cited the law giving him ris authority; they lived
as man and wife for twelve months, to my know?
ledge. Mr. Merrlok entered an exception to the
evidence. Mr. Harrington offered a certificate
from the sectary of State of Florida, showing that
Mr. Henderson held a position at the rime as Judge
of the Probate Cou?. Objected to, and objection
sustained. Mr. Riddle then objected to the evl
dence in reference to the ceri i a cate and license.
Cross-examined. At the time of the marriage
I resided m Newport, Fia., where he had lived
eighteen or twenty years, r read law twenty
four months; was admitted to practice In Qetr
gia. In 1859 1 waa appointed judge. I recollect
thc marriage; lt took place In thc afternoon. I
knew Bowen flrst in 1859. I first saw him in the
Mr. Riddle. "What is the Exchange?" Wit?
ness. '-A place where sporting men congregated."
Mr. Merrick. "What was Mr. Bowen doing
there?" Witness. "He was dealing at the fara
Mr. Merrick. "What were you doing there;
did you play?" Witness..."I have deals faro
there and played lt." [Laughter.]
Mr. Harrington stated that if tbedefence would
admit that he was married to Mrs. Susan P. King,
he wonld discharge Mrs. King, as she ,was lying
vety ill in the witness room, and that he would
also discharge Rev. Mr. Lowry, tbe preacher. The
defence stated that they would admit the second
marriage, and thereupon Mrs. King and Mr.
Lowry were discharged. Mr. Charles Matthews
was next called, and testified that he resided m
Louisville, Ky., and knew Mrs. Tabitha -Bowen.
Her name, before,abe waa married, was Tabitha
Parke. He flrst became acquainted with Mr.
Bowen in August last, Hartcoived a latter from
Mrs. Bowen, in which she stated-. Mc. Rid?
dle* "Ton need not say what she said} only aay
wfiat you did." Witness resuming. "I went to
see her, and she said" --. Mr. Merrick. -'Never
mind what she said.-' Witness. ."I went to her
house, and met Mr. Bowen there; they lived aa
man and wife." The defence objected to the I
further testimony or Mr. Matthews. The court
suggesteoythat the admission of the defence in
reference to thc second.marriage had better be la
writing and filed as evidence Tn the case, which
was accordingly [done. The government nero
c!o-ed their case.
THE DEPKNXK OPENED,
and Mrs. Parke Bowen was called.
Mr. Harrington objected tftst Mrs. Parke-JJowerr I
waa. incompetent as a witness in this case, be
canse lt ls a case against her haaband. '
Mr. Riddle said that theques'lon oefore the jory
wa?, whether or not the witness called Was Bow-1
en's wire. Cn til that was decided ;t was an open,
question, and the witness WHS competent. ..
Mr. Harrington urged that where the charge
was bigamy the ont wife could not be evidence,
bot arter pr i ma facie proor or the flrst ?marriage
the second wire mlgat be introduced.
Mr. Merrick aatd tnat the precedents authorized
the court to exercleo a discretion upon tt)e admis
8lon or the alleged wire ia this case. In some
oases the wltuess was examined by the court. If
she said she was married she was a good witness;
if she denied the marriage she was then compe?
tent to tesl ify. .
Mr. Harrington said that the calling of Mrs.
Parke Bowen was for effect. He wonld withdraw |
his objection and allow her to testify.
Judge Wylie said he would not permit the ob?
jection to be withdrawn. The policy of the. law,
os laid down by tue authorities, was- decidedly
against allowing the repdted wife to testify, and
b? would exclude the witness. . . J
Mr. Merrick mewed- that the court instruct the |
jury to And for the defence, on the ground that
the indictment did not state t he place at which the |
flrst marriage occurred.
Judge Wylie said he would take this objection
into consideration, and decide the question In the
Hgt Riddle, in making the opening speech for
the defence, said that he would willingly have
been spared the recital of the facts he reit it his
doty to disclose. This case does not come at the
Instance or motion of any friend or the alleged
first wife. ThedUthot-a(torney and his assistant,
he would say, appear lo the discharge, of their
duty.? The law is*%bmetlmes used as an. Instru?
ment or oppression. The defendant is unfortu?
nately in public life, baa been successful, but has
rivals who are not-Bnccessfu!, .and he must be got
out of the way, -judicially, if possible. He had
only to refer to toe.reiaarkable statements made |
by the press of Washington, to show that his
rivals were at work. Truth is sometimes stranger
than Action. They had the alleged flrst wire, who
was brought in yesterday, and ho regreuei that
he had to say something m regara io her. Thia
wooran, twelve er arreen years ago, was the
keeper of a place of public resort for men, in
Macon, Georgia, and in columbus, Georgia, She
and the defendant had associated together, bot he
never was united-to. her by marriage. He went
to Tallahassee, she followed him; he left and went
to Fernandina, and he never went with her to
Newport. He never saw Judge Henderson, and
the (ir-: time he saw him was-tnjhla court room.
Having about her a Mr. Wilkinson, she proposed
that he should personate C. C. Bowen, and with
him sue went u< Newport and wen*, through the
form of marriage, and he received from her $200; |
remained with her a few days;- went to New
Orleans, then to Buenos Ayres, to New York, and
to Chicago. After defendants return from Fer?
nandina lie lived with her a few months; never
acknowledged hlnise-r as herJiasband. but gradu?
ally broke off from her, and ?evcrtnV w thai she
claimed to have been married to him until some
statements were published lu, the papera a few i
mouths ago. He. would put on the .stand a Mt.
Woodward, who waa with'the defendant in Fer-.
undina; and, in conclusion, referred to defen?
dant's present wife as sn Innocent party, who
anxiously awaited the decision of the jury.

dant, and swore that for about two weeks Bowen

The Result of th? Trial.
WASHINGTON, Thursday, February 16.
The Jury in the Bowen case, after consulting all
night, found themselves unable, to make a ver?
dict, eleven bein pr Tor conviction and one for ac?
quittal. They, therefore, came into conrt this
morning and were discharged: Judge Wylie, In
discharging them, said, ir the prosecution failed
to obtain a verdie: on that evidence, he did not
think they would ever have a verdict. He said.
that one bribed Juror was more than a match for
hla eleven fellows, but he did not mean to insinu?
ate that there was a bribed juror on thia pauel.
ne did not aee how a juror could -hesitate for a
moment In findings verdict in a cai? like thia
and he thought that the evidence of two wit?
nesses, who testified to their own infamy, should
not have' mnch weight. A wretch o' that kind
ought not to be believed.

THE WORK OF THE LEGISLATURE.
[FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.]
. COLUMBIA, February 16.
The proceedings of both branches of the
General Assembly were, with the exception of a
lew vehement Interruptions, conducted in a
peaceful and business-like manner. One of the
most important subjeots was the reception of the
Governor's message, relative to the outrages In
Union, which was read in both house?, and synop?
sis of which were sent you by telegraph.
Next to the Governor's message, came the pro?
position to appoint a committee to proceed to
Washington to procure Federal troops, on which
the House had already acted. Leslie opposed the
measure, and made a most severe speech, de?
nouncing the policy of the Governor, 'who, he de?
clared was shirking responsibilities behind the
Legislature. Maxwell thought the sending or a
; committee unnecessary, as our representatives at
Washington would be amply sufficient to perform
all that is required on this occasion, wu itt era ore
followed in the same strain, declaring that our
senators and representatives in Congress would
have more weight with the Federal authorities
than any committee they could select, and offer?
ed the following substitute:
Be it resolved by the Senate and House of Rep
resentatlves of the State of South Carolina, now
met and sitting In General Assembly, and by the
authority of the same, That'our senators and
representatives lo the Congress of the United
States be requested to wait npon the President of
the United States, "and make a true statement of
the outrages recently visited upon Our people,'Ly
an organization of disguised and murderous out?
laws, and present him with a copy of the concur?
rent resolution adopted by both Houses, and also
with a copnor so much or the Governor's message
in answer ito thesame, an rentes to the outrages-1
commlKed,.and request tho President to send a ,
detachment or "troops to protect the lives and
property of the upper part of the State, and pre?
sent a copy sf the resolution and the message of
the Governor to both branches of Congress."
On this the ayes and noes were called, and the
substitute adopted by a vote or 13 to 5.
Mr. Whtttemore introduced resolutions today
ca linc npon the financial agent, Mr. Ktmpton, to
Inform the Senate hy to-morrow, to-wit: First.

A LUDICROUS SCENE.
A most iudlorous scene occurred in the House
.to-day, during which Mr. Byas's equilibrium was
considerably shaken, lt is generally the habit of
the members of this branch of the General As?
sembly, when they get a member in the chair,
during the temporary absence of the speaker, to
multiply motions and questions of ali kinda This
was the case to-day with By as, who shortly after
ascending the speaker's stand found himself
mixed up in a perrect whirl-pool or motions, points
ot order and questions of privilege, from which
it is hard to tell how he would have extricated
Ulnmelr, bad not Speaker Moses come to his
rescue at an opportune moment.

IHB PROSPECT OF PEACE.
The New French Government-Appre?
hensions In Regard to the Tri ?mphal
Entry of Kaiser Wilhelm Into Parla. *
NEW YORK, February io.
The Herald special from Bordeaux, Febru?
ary is-.h, says the Deputies manifestly intend to
overthrow the violent Republlcanlf aud remove
the capit?l from Paris to shield the government
from the mob. A personal conversation with
Deputies Induces the belief that a temporary pro?
visional government will be flrst established.
Thiers, GrcVey, Trochu, Dcscluz and Darc-eu, are
favorably mentioned, and, In connection with
prominent citizens through the provinces, will
certainly be placed in power. The Radicals are
making a desperate straggle, bat ories for a con?
tinuance of the war ano no surrender have evi?
dently lost their loree. The conservatives are
quiet and confident. Thiers is-a strong under?
current in favor of the Orleanlst. The election of
the Orleans Princes will likely be declared valid.
LONDON, February is.
The special correspondent of the Times at Ber?
lin telegraphs that Bismarck's terms of peace are
comparatively moderate. It ls stated the Madrid
Government will postpone the elections In Cuba.
A World special from Dijon, the 15th/says Beirort
surrendered with the honors or war. The armis?
tice has been extended to the departments or
Cote d'Or and Doubs. A World special from
Bordeaux, the 15th, says affairs are more promis?
ing for the Republicans. There have arrived asl
delegates. A majority seem inclined to confirmv
the action of the Assembly to a ratification of the
terms of peace and postpone other matters
till adjournment to Paris. A special from
Havre says the Prussians continue to vio?
late the armistice and still exact contribu?
dons from the people. Where districts are un able'
to pay, the mayors are arrested as hostages. The
Echo says Prince Napoleon will make London his
permanent residence. The excitement in Ron
mania has considerably abated. Thc Paris press
anticipates bloody scenes should the Prussians
persist in a triumphant march through the city.
Count ifensdorf is dead. The interruption bf;
communication between Lille and Paris wis'
caused by excess of trafile. Registered letters
are now allowed to pass to and from Paris.
VERSAILLES, February 16.
The surrender or arms by the Paris garrison is

in the newspapers. Tnere are very few facts to
add in addition to the intelligence which we have
from time to time published, and which was re?
ceived from Paris by balloon mail. There were
some fifty peonle killed and one hundred and
twenty-five wounded by the lire of the Prussian
guns. It seems singular enough that a large pro?
portion of these should have been women. On
one occasion five women were killed at the same

their turn to parchase meat at a butcher's shop.
THE PROTEST OF CHESTERFIELD.
A Strong Utterance.
At a meeting ot the citizens of Chesterfield
County, held on tue SIM Instant, the following pre?
amble and resolutions were adopted:
WTvereas, It becomes a people who are attached
to the form of government under which they have
been reared, and who value the political rights it
was designed to secure to them, to guard them
with jealous care and denounce with unhesitating
boldness any perversion of the one or infringe?
ment ol thc other; and whereas, their own self
respect demands some expression-pf indignant
condemnation of the conduct of those-whoever
they may be-who dare, In defiance of law, of
Justice and of Tesson, to perpetrate npon them so
gross an outrage as to. stifle the voice of the peo?
ple at thc ba'lot-box, and deprive them of repre
Hentatloirra the government by their own -chosen
del?gales; and wnereaa, lt would be unmanly and
unpatriotic to refrain from the public utterance
of our trae and decided sentiment of reprobation
and disgust induced by the recent outrageous ac?
tion or t';e House of Repr?sentai ives at Columbia,
in ejecting the representatives from Chesterfield,
sud Imposing upon us by fraud, by bribery and by
tyranny, Incompetent and unworthy substitutes
who aire not the choice of the large majority of
the votera, but were rejected by them at the bal?
1. Resolved, That, as citizens of Chesterfield, we
do solemnly protest against the unwarranted
ejection of Messrs. M. I. Hough and B. C. Evans
?rom their seats in the House of Representatives,
to which they were fairly, legally and triumphant?
ly elected, notwithstanding the opposition of on
scrupulous partisan tricksters, and the operation
of laws designed to defeat a fair expression of
the will of the people.
2. Resolved, That we protest against the admis?
sion of one uttletie'.d, who never was a citizen of
Chesterfield, but a political adventurer, who was,
at the date of the election, and long after; a mem?
ber of the constabulary force, and one Singleton,
neither of whom received a majority of the votes
cost, or even a majority of the votes counted out
of the ballot-boxes, after they had been shame?
fully tampered with an'd altered, with a view to
cha?as thc manifest result of the election.
3. Hesolved, vThat we denounce the. action of
the House of Representatives as being without
the semblance of law, or even of common deoen
cy; against the evidence of the official return of
the board of canvassers, and the sworn state?
ments of tunny of onr best citizens; In violation
of Its own order In the case but a few weeks be?
fore, and of every fair precedent In lise cases; in
derogation of the right of suffrage and of repre?
sentation; and as indicative of a deliberate and
settled purpose, on the part of those In power,
notwithstanding the recent and repeated protes?
tations of their Governor and other political lead?
ers and organs, of moderation, amendment and
reform, to carry out tho system of fraud and op?
pression they have Inaugurated, to Ita final and
inevliable result of anarchy and ruin.
4. Resolved, That while we denounce the cor?
ruption which tolerates saca iniquitous and revo?
lutionary proceedings, we cannot ho p deploring
the mischievous eflects which must result to the
people of our community and State, ia exalting
Jealousies, provoking bitterness or it el rug and
stirring up strife between the diff?rent classes of
citizens. Instead or repalrin,' 'the unhappy
breeches, healing divisions, harmonizing Con
meting oplnloosyand Interests, and 'assuring
avery claren or Che lt/violabilltr of ala vetted
rights, la order th ft society may Da-firmly *e*tab
ilshed-upon the basts or peace, order and perma?
nence, we cannot doubt that lt ls the purpose or
the actors lu'thls outrage to perpetuate,, as rar aa
may be In their power, the reign of discord and
corruptlnn. Yet, as good.citizens, we earnestly
deprecate arny action on the part of oar people.to
which, as men under unusual provocation, they
might be tempted to resort, In order to right their
' own wrongs, outside of the law.
6. Resolved, That we attribute the assaults
which are especially made upon the rights of the
people*! Chesterfield, In a groat measure, to the
influence ox one R. James Donaldson, who, ever
since he came among us, In the guise of a min
. ister or religion, has Misled himself in sowing
the seeds .or distension between the white and
colored races, reaping rorhimseir a harvest of fat
.offices add lucrative positions, and betraying-his
?deluded followers, and was the Ingenious though
base contriver of ali the machinery of fraud put
.la operation, at the recent election here-a dla-,
graco and'a "norden to rds-own party, and a;
fomenter of discord in the conruunfty. -
C Resolved, That- wer cannot recognize the In?
dividuals now occupying the seats of our ejected
members, as the representatives Of Chesterfield; -
On motion of E. F. Malloy,
Resolved, That this preamble and resolutions,
with tras motion affixed to those adopted, be sent
to the-G overa or or the state, the president or the
'Senate/the speaker of the House of Representa?
tives, with the request that they be read before;
