Vast K?tute- \ Pauling Question of |
For romantic interest and extraordinary-in?
cident, tbe story now being told in the Eng?
lish Court or Common Pleas, Def ore Lord Chief
Justice Bo viii and a special jury, in the great
case of Tichborne vs. Lushington, can-scarce?
ly be surpassed by any novel. The question
Involved ls the plaintiff's identity with Reger
C. D. Tichborne, whojeft England in 1853, and
was supposed to have been lost at sea. If-pis
claim ls established, he will come into posses?
sion of a baronetcy and a vast estate; wh le, if
he should fail, he may well be regarded as
the-' most remarkable impostor o? modern
times. Questions of personal Identity are ah?
mtet always interesting, and are generally of
much Importance to the parties Immediately
concerned; as, for inst&nce^ where' the wrong
manffr hanged by reason of 'his close resem?
blance to the real criminal, as bas unques?
tionably happened more than Qfips. $nt such
a case rarely excites the same degree of pub?
lic interest as ls manifested when, as here, Ike
claim to a title and a great estate is disputed,
on the ground that the claimant 's an im?
postor. .' v '? J-5
The Tichborne trial was begun on the 13th
of May, before a Jury of eleven, by eensentof
counsel on both sides, who comprise some of
the ablest men at the bar. Thus far only the
plaintiff's evidence has beerr.neard ; but iris at
such a character as almos! -tb Jua'thy the re?
mark of one ol the witnesses, .that (ne claim?
ant ls "either Sir Boger Tichborne or the
About some of the facts there is no contro?
versy. It is certain that. Roger C. D. Tich?
borne, the son of Sir James IX Tichborne and
Lady Harriet F. Tichborne, was born in Janu?
ary, 1829; that he was brought up in Paris,
where his lather and mother then resided,
un .er the care of a French -tutor named Cbat
tlllon, the family being Roman Catholics; that
in 1845 he waa sent to achoo lin England; that
he entered the Bri tish army as an officer ot
the Carbineers in 1849, and was stalk ned for a
while at Dublin with -his regiment; uud that in
1853, from soma cause which is not clearly ex?
plained, he left England, proceeded te Harve,
and there embarked on .a sailing Vessel called
the Pauline, bound for Valparaiso. . t
While an officer In trie army, young Tich?
borne waa rather slim, about five teev eight
Inches in- height, and having been .educated
in Prance, his English was decidedly foreign
In accent His departure to South America
can be attributed only to the unhappiness
which he-experienced in his home .relations
owing to the miserable iiie which his
parents led together, to' the ridicule he en?
countered in the army owing to his d?ficient
education, and which led him to sell his com?
mission, aad to hie love lor a wild, roaming
. It is alleged in behalf of the claimant that
Roger Tichborne, accompanied by a servant
named Moore, reached Valparaiso In safety,
and thence went to Santiago, where Moore
fell sick and was left behind by bis master,
who expected to continue his voyage in the
Pauline. After - residing a short time at a
place called Mellpllla, he abandoned this Idea,
and made a Journey across , the Continent of
Sooth America. Returning to Santiago, he
m?t Moore again, and then made his way to
Rio Janeiro, where be embarked on, the Belli,
a vessel bound for Mew York.
Now there ls no doubt that the. real Roger
Tichborne was on board the Bella when she
Bailed. The Bella was lost at sea; and when
the news reached England that the vessel and
all hands bad gone down, lt was firmly be?
lieved that Slr Roger had shared their late.
His lather's will was proved, and the next ol
kin, whose guardians .appear as defendants in
this suit, took the property.
On the proposition ttiat one person was saved
.'rom the wreck of the Bella, and that that per?
son was Slr Roger Tichborne, is based the
plaintiff's claim In this great suit. He says
that two boals lett the vessel; that he was.lu
one of them: and that after floating about In
lt for three days he was picked up by aa Amer?
ican vessel and taken to Melbourne, wr ere he
landed ! n July, 1854. *
The Australian gold excitement was then at
Its height; but Sir Roger-assuming that the
claimant ls he-being a good horseman, went .
to work at breaking norees-instead of diggina }
gold. He was very fond of horses, and met 11
with much success, remaining for some time
in the service of a gentleman named Foster,
in Gippsland, and changing his name to
Thomas Castro, that of a friend he bad made
In Chill. He was married in 1865, and bas had
In the meantime a sailor, wbo had solicited
alms of Slr Rogerfe mother, Lady Tichborne,
at Tichborne Park, in England, saying that he
had come from Australia, told her that he
had beard while there of some persons ship?
wrecked on the Bella having b?en picked up
and brought to Melbourne. This was In 1858.
Lady Tichborne attached considerable Impor?
tance to it, although her husband did not; but
after his death, and in 1863, abe advertised the
fact and for Information concerning her lost
son in England, Australia and elsewhere. The
advertisements came to the notice of the
claimsfnt, add led to his return to England
with his family in 1866.'
How far does the alleged Roger Tichborne
ol ' 1S56 and of to-day - resemble the Roger
Tichborne who sailed from Havre in the year
1853? He Is very much stouter, his heh ht
differs little, if at all, and he ls utterly unable
to speak French, which was the language ol
But the evince ol hls'ldentlty ls exceed?
ingly strong. His mother-since dead-re?
cognized him and acknowledged bhn as her
son. Mr. Hopkins, tho lamlly solicitor, who
had known ibo young man very Intimately,
recognized him, A cousin, who nad-prevlous; .
ly made np hts mind* that the claimant was an ?i
arrant imposter, succumbed at the Hr.-1 inter- i
view, and recognized him. Moore, the ser- j
vant who went out lu the Pauline, identified i
him. The regimental tailor knew him as tbe
man for whom he had formerly filled orders,
and fourteen former officers and privates in
the Carbineers swore to bis identity.
The claimant's lack of education has been,
much commented on, and the 'solicitor-gene?
ral, who is one ot the counsel lor the defence,
elicited the following testimony on his cross
examination ot the cousin of whom we have;
already spoken: "

ness. I coald point out several English gen?
tlemen who would not pass muster as Euglah
gentlemen any better than he does. They are
men apparently no better than farmers, and I
would place Tichborne among that class. I

not dress in the particular style that he after?
The Solicitor-General. I am not speaking
about his dress, but his manners. Witness.
I never said that the present claimant Had no
better manners than a pig Jobber. ..
The Solicitor-General. Do you mean to say
that the manners ol the claimant are as good I
as the manners of the Tichborne whom you"
knew in 1848 ? Witness. Quite as good. If
have seen him preside at his table with as
much repose as any gentleman. He was a 1
man whom you could not distinguish irom the
vast number ot gentlemen except in some in?
accuracies ojt language. .
The Solicitor-General. Snoh as "howsomd

tongue, testified thai while dining with the
elaimant since bis return she spoke a few words
In French, when he evinced his kuowledge of
wAt she said, proving that he had not wholly
foi gotten the language.
Almost every witnees thus far has described
tile manner in which he tested the claimant's
memory as to the Incidente which It seems
scarcely possible could be known to an Impos?
ter; and in every instance the 'statements
made by him have coincided with the recollec?
tion of the questioner.
Since his return, the claimant-has been en?
gaged until now In collecting evidence for
this suit*" and through what perils he had to
proceed, the iollowlng passage from the open?
ing speech of Sergeant: Ballantine will show : .
"Commissions were. iBSued both to Australia
and Melipllla. I may say that from that you
cannot doubt that Slr Roger Tichborne has
been largely supported, ana that a large num?
ber of persons implicitly believe in hlB story,
and have been ready-to help h i ir \n money as
well as In countenance. Slr Bo?er Tichborne
started with the South American commission;
but after they reached Bia lt became a ques?
tion whether they should cross the Cordilleras
or go around by Cr-.pe Horn. Slr Boger had
naturally a strong objection to a sea voyage,
and while ?he other members, afraid to under-'
take'toe risk o? crossing the Cordilleras, went
by the sea, Slr Roger start?d by that route,
and had reached-Cadova, a place on the fron?
tier *bf the mountains. There he became ex?
tremely HI, and,' in Consequence, he was oblig?
ed to return to England withOut-nrakinc ms
way across the Cordilleras. As a singular epi?
sode in this extraordinary ease, I may men?
tion that the diligence in which he had taken
his place was stopped In the Cordilleras, and
every person in lt murdered."
Of course we cannot know what was in the
counsel's mind when he said thia; but it cer?
tainly was a very remarkable fact that every
traveller In the diligence in whlch.it was
known the claimant Intended to cross the
mountains-should have been .murdered on that
Almost all that can be said of the defence ia,
that it will rest upon the assumed death of Slr
Boger Tichborne on the occasion of the ship?
wreck of the Bella. Although we have as yet
heard only eqe side ol the catie, and not the
Shole of that, It is certain'that if the claimant
not Slr Boger Tichborne, be ought to be In
some doubt as, to his personal identity by the
time the trial bended. He .might soliloquise
after the manner ot the Tale student Damed
Ammi, who, coming home froora late dinner,
held forth to himself thus : ."Am I Ammi, or

THE SOUTH AND MB. J?AVIS.
TO THE EDITOR OP T$S NEWS.
One of the most humiliating signs of the
limes is to be found in the comments or cer?
tain editors of Southern newspapers, on Mr.
Davis's recent speech at Atlanta. It is not the
purpose ot the writer either to endorse or re?
pudiate, In any particular, the sentiments of
that speech. It woola, .perhaps, have been
more becoming*, as well as more prudent, If.
Mr. Davis had maintatr.ed .perfect silence in
reference to the political situation. Bat, cer?
tainly, lt must be deeply mortilying to all true
men everywhere-North as well as South-to
Dote the alacrity with which Southern men
ibu He and vllllfy che man whom they so recent?
ly admired and honored. Mr. Davis ls no
longer "the founder of a new nation." He
:an no longer dispense patronage and cooler
power. He is pow only .the ex-leader of a
?.Lost Cause." But, notwithstanding this
Sreat change, he ls the very same Jefferson
avis he was In 1861. He is Identically fm
?ame man Co whom, rn lem .mercenary dttfjk
in unanimous South entrusted the leadership1
rf the cause for w*hose support tfrey ''pledged
their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred
nonor." This cause hus been irrevocably lost,
ind the Southern people are very desirous of
ihe restoration ol' harmony between the sec?
tions ot the country lately at war. But, unless
[am greatly mistaken, they-are utterly un-,
-rilling to attain this end by sacrificing their
ielt'-respect. They have maintained and exer?
cised the right freely to criticise the official and
public conduct of Mr. Davis, as well as ot
)ther men. B?t they cannot, without deep
legradatlon, condescend, in compliance with
i fanatical prejudice, to positive abuse and
-illtficailon of their own deliberately chosen
eoder and champion. If peace can on?y be .
mrchased by such humiliating condescension,
hen let discord reign forever. We cannot de?
grade Jefferson Davis without degrading our
lelves. He stands forth how, and he will
itaod forth forever, as the representative of
he Confederate cause. The character ol the
leople o? the Confed?rate States is judged of
iow, and will be judged of by the most distant
josterlty, by the character ol their--chosen
lead. And why should we deprecate such a
udgment ? It may be true that Mr. Davis has
nade great mistakes. It may be even, as some
iBsert, that our cause was lost through his mis
nanagemenL Btu when the nasslons of the
lour shall have subsided, Ic wijl not be denied
hat, wich all of his faults and shortcoming , he
nanlfested, in an extraordinary degree, cour
esy, dignity, courage, fortitude, fidelity, hu

son Davis has stood by the South with un?
shaken constancy and dauntless courage,

berefore, let not Southern men swell the ranks."

OVR RIVAL RADICAL MtSQS.
The Straggle over the United States
Marshalahlp in South Carolina,
A Washington letter of Sunday to the Balli-,

A war has been going on for some time be-'
tween the Radical ?actions ia South Carolina
that ol Governor scott cm the one side and
K?nator Sawyer on the other-which has re?
sulted In the defeat of the former. Upon rep?
resentations made by Goyern?r Scott and his.
(action, United States Marshal Johnson, son of
the H n. Reverdy Johnson, was suspended,
and a Mr. Wallace nominated to succeed him
as marshal. . Hearing of this. Senator Sawyer
and his faction set at work to defeat Wallace,
and haye been so rar successful as to stop the
issuing of the commission to Wallace, thus
leaving. Johnson In office. The Prealdent, a
*tew days since? informed Johnson that he had
learned that the representations and charges !
made against him (JohnBon) were false, and
ne shoiud not be removed.
A dlspatch'to^the Baltimore.Sun of the same

Only a week ago, Wallace, member of Cen
gress from South Carolina, who had testified
.'6atlslaclocUy" before the "outraire commit?
tee," had his son appointed Umied Slates mar?
shal for Charleston, He rejoiced, like Berger .
and Settle, when they served as swift wetnes?
ses against North Carolina, over the value of
affidavits, and was doubtless comforting him?
self with a share of the prospective spoils.
But the ousted marshal, Mr. Louis E. Johnson,
son ol' Hon, Reverdy Johnson, did not take
the dismissal quietly. He presented' himself
at Long Branch,. Imbibed its bracing atmos?
phere, and exposed the wrong of his re
movai with sufficient energy to be restored.
So he is in again, and Wallace is out. But
whether Wallace will stay out, is quite another
affair. We expeot to see a delegation whisk?
ing through here by the next train to the sea?
side executive mansion, brimful of Indignant
"loyalty," and demanding justice-the last,
thing they Bhonld seek So there is no telling
who ls or will be marshal at Charleston, until
these rival roses shall, have composed their
griefs, the prospect for which ls far from en?

hi? colored colleagues demunded thu head of
Johnson, and they got it. Now colored Con?

insist upon a second decapitation, and threat?
en things terrible, we are inclined to think
"His Excellency" will order another removal.
And after that history may repeat itself.
